(Narada!This utmost confidential narration of the features of Devi Saraswati is indeed worthy of learning by all the persons of virtue as that is not only the effective medium to smash all kinds of fears and impediments but also to pave the smooth way for achieving shining success of possible endeavours. In the times immemorial, Lord Brahma noticed ‘Sthavara jangamas’ or the Moveable or Immobile Beings and after meditation to the Almighty for innumerable Divya Years and at long last succeeded in the creation of the Three Lokas when Devi Vani the Unique Shakti manifested by herself as the Maha Vidya or the Embodiment of Immortal Knowledge as the Goddess of Learning and Vocal Powers. I am now instructing you now the Thousand and Odd Names of Saraswati for the benefit of the posterity so that the latter could live with confidence and self reliance. The inhabitants of the next generations of the Worlds would indeed be enlightened and blessed with this following Script of the ‘Maha Saaraswatwa’ and ‘Vaagishatwa’ – the essence of Saraswati Vidya and of Vaageswari Tatwa as they would be highly contented undoubtedly. The inner voice initiated by Pitamaha Brahma got expressed as Stutis and Stotras of Devi Saraswati ever since then. Narada! Do concentrate the following with earnestness and with clean conscience).
