    Goddess Saraswati: The Goddess of knowledge, Music and Art

Goddess Saraswati is the goddess of knowledge, music, wisdom and the arts. The Sanskrit word ‘Sara’ means ‘essence’ and ‘Swa’ means ‘self’, thus Saraswathi means “the essence of the self”. She is the consort of Lord Brahma. Goddess Saraswati is also known as the “mother of the Vedas” The goddess is also called ‘Vak Devi’, the Goddess of Speech.In Hinduism, Saraswati represents intelligence, consciousness, cosmic knowledge, creativity, education, enlightenment, music, the arts, and power. Hindus worship Goddess Saraswati not only for “secular knowledge”, but for “spiritual knowledge” to achieve moksha.

Maa Saraswati has four arms, which represent the four aspects of human personality in learning:  mind, intellect, alertness, and ego. Her four arms also represent the 4 Vedas, the primary sacred books for Hindus.

The three forms of arts prose,poetry and music are depicted by the four hands of Goddess —

A book, which is the sacred Vedas, representing the divine, eternal, and true knowledge as well as her perfection of the sciences and the scriptures.

A mala (rosary) of crystals, representing the power of meditation and spirituality.

A pot of sacred water, representing creative and purification powers.

The vina, a musical instrument that represents her perfection of all arts and sciences.

A hamsa is often located next to her feet.  That is the reason Goddess Saraswati is also referred to as Hamsavahini, which means “she who has a hamsa as her vehicle”.

The peacock represents arrogance and pride over its beauty, and by having a peacock as her mount, the Goddess teaches not to be concerned with external appearance.
