Goddess of Art, Knowledge, Music, wisdom and Learning; Saraswati is a part of trinity or tridevi along with Lakshmi and Parvathi. The name itself means "essence of one self". Portrayed as a beautiful woman dressed in pure white, seated on a white lotus, symbolises light, Knowledge and truth. Where as the musical instrument "veena" represents all creative arts and science. The swan which is the vehicle of saraswathi, symbolises the ability to discriminate between the good and evil. Remembering and worshipping can help one to renew their minds and hearts for a deeper connection to the cosmic reality.
