I received shaktipat diksha from Gurumayi in May of 1987, three months before I entered law school. I learned about the Goddess Sarasvati at that time and bought a card with her picture and verse 4 of the Sarasvati Stotram on it. I began the practice of singing these lines every day.
I feel that the grace of the Goddess supported me during law school, through the bar exam, while looking for work, and throughout the 25 years that I have worked as a civil litigator in California. I have a picture of Sarasvati at my office and I sing the Sarasvati Stotram verse to her every morning before I begin work.
I recently gave Sarasvati's photo and the same verse to two of my nieces who are in college. They were delighted to learn of this great Goddess who can support them in their endeavors and reveal their very own divinity.
I am deeply grateful to this Goddess of learning, speech, and creativity. By her divine grace, I perceive my world as a paradise.
