Goddess of learning, consort of Brahma
A mind born daughter of Brahma
The goddess of learning. Also, one of India's great sacred rivers. In the modern age the river is almost totally invisible, but a short stretch of it appears from the Himalaya mountains, near Vyasadeva's ashrama, just north of Badarika. The Sarasvati joins underground with the Ganga and Yamuna at Prayaga.
In Hinduism, Saraswati (less frequently romanized as Sarasvati) is the goddess of knowledge, wisdom, science, speech, and all arts-- music, painting, dance and literature. In India today, Hindus still revere Sarasvati as a goddess who is a reflection of the greater Mother, or Devi, and female dynamic energy, or Shakti. Her festival is held in late January or early February and prayer, called puja, is conducted.
