Saraswati Mata

.

Saraswati Mantra           Saraswati Vandana

                     

Almost all Hindus worship the deities;Mata Saraswati,Mata Lakshmi and Ganesha and it is an integral part of the festival, Diwali.Mata Lakshmi signifies fortune and prosperity, Mata Saraswati seating with her Veena represents knowledge and learning and Ganesha is the God who is the remover of all the obstacles.It is believed that worshipping them during the Diwali festival enriches the happiness, wealth, wisdom and prosperity.

The goddess of knowledge and the arts, embodies the wisdom of Devi.  She is the river of consciousness that enlivens creation.She is the goddess dawn who dispels the darkness of ignorance.To realize her one must go beyond the pleasures of the senses and rejoice in the serenity of the spirit.Saraswati neither wears jewels nor uses any bright colors.  The white sari on her reflects the  purity.
 

She transcends the cravings of the flesh and rejoices in the powers of the mind as the patron of pure wisdom.She embodies all that is pure and sublime in Nature.The four Vedas,are her offsprings.Her herald, the peacock, is a symbol of the arts and her mount, the swan, personifies pure knowledge.

 

The Birth


Brahma was thinking to bring to order when Mata Saraswati advised him to get it done with the use of Knowledge.

Mata Saraswati,came out from Brahma’s mouth Heralded by a peacock, sacred books and a veena in hands,clad in white sari.

“Knowledge helps man to solve all problems.”  Said Mata. With her guidence Brahma could sense, think, comprehend and communicate. Also, he could see the happenings with eyes of wisdom.
 

Brahma explored the melody of mantrasand he named Mata as 'Vagdevi', the goddess of speech and sound.

The sound of mantras filled the universe with vital energy and life and the cosmos got a form,like heaven,the ocean.the earth.The sun began the routine of rise and set.the moon had his routine, the ocean had tide and ebb. The season cycle started. plants bloomed and withered, animals reproduced and the universe was set to order.   
               

Brahma thus became the creator of the world with as his wisdom.Saraswati was the first being to come into Brahma’s world.Brahma began to look upon her with eyes of desire. 
 

Brahma could not control and he was infatuated towards the lovely goddess. He got himself four heads facing al directions so as to stare his eyes on Saraswatis beauty.

Saraswati stayed away from Brahma, by taking various forms as a cow.bird,mare etc.and  Brahma then followed her as the corresponding male equivalent.  No matter how hard Brahma tried he could not catch Saraswati in any of her forms.The goddess with multiple forms came to be known as 'Shatarupa'.
 

Angered by his unbridled passion ,Saraswati cursed Brahma, “You are not worthy of reverence.  May there be hardly any temple or festival in your name.”Later on ,Lord Shiva with anger taught Brahma lesson and cut his fifth head.


Brahma performed a yagna, fire sacrifice, to cleanse himself.Since for the performance of Yadnya ritual the assistance of a wife is needed,Brahma chose Saraswati to be his wife and thus they were reconciled.  

Mata Saraswati had also saved the world from Lord Shiva's anger.
