Saraswati by Raja Ravi Varma


Saraswati is the Goddess of learning and Mahasaraswati is the Goddess of knowledge, which is pure knowledge. Now the Goddess of learning, Saraswati, has got four arms. She wears white clothes because it is a sign of purity. She is a virgin. Then She has in Her hand the veena. at is the instrument which was the first instrument that was created by the Gods to play the classical music or you can say the music that was appreciated by the Gods. So that one is the vina. And in the two other hands, one has got a rosary in the hand, in the sense a person who is learned should be a person who should be very much detached.... And then in the left hand, She has a book, so that means that the power of Saraswati gives you the full creativity by which you can create books.... We must know what are in the books, which means in the scriptures.... The creativity of Saraswati adds to the artist.... With the worship of Saraswati, you can read books, you can create dances, music for the amusement of human beings, but actually the Saraswati Puja is meant for people of ordinary awareness. That means ordinary or normal human awareness. But for Sahaja Yogis, it is the Mahasaraswati which is to be worshiped.... Another blessing of Saraswati is that you can have the knowledge of Sahaja Yoga. (Shri Saraswati Puja 1990)
