1 Answer 1


1) Vaak Shuddhi comes from Purity of Thought , Mind and Heart. Vaak is the as articulated sound and when the uchharan -spoken is clean and correct it can be considered as Pure i.e. Shuddhi.

2) To achieve this only Discipline (Abhyasa) and Bhakti will help in development; ultimately it is Mata Vaak Devis, Shree Saraswati's Anugraha Kripa alone that takes us ahead in this and it is thus also a Kala-speaking ability, with grace and fluency etc..

3) Character lies in in thought- Words and deeds. So the first two are extremely important i.e. Manas Shuddhi + Vaak Shuddhi.

Ref 2 above on Shree Mata Saraswati this may be noted for Sadhana to Vaak Devi Shree Saraswati: She is also described as:

Vagdevi – Goddess of Speech

Jihvagravasni – Dwelling at the tip of the tongue

Buddhi Sakti Swarupini – Whose form is the Power of Intellect Kalpana Sakti – Who is the Power of Forming ideas.

Sarva Vidya Swarupini – All forms of Knowledge

Sarva Sastravasini – Dwelling in the Shastras (Books of Shastra)
