Goddess Saraswati is clad in a beautiful simple white saree, and is seen riding a white swan, or sitting on a white lotus. Because white symbolizes peace and purity, this Goddess depicts all traits and attributes of goodness and calmness. She carries four important elements in her four hands – the Veena
, the Vedas
, a bead rosary, and a water pot. All these elements depict harmony, knowledge, spirituality, and the reservoir of life respectively.
Goddess Saraswati is worshipped with great fanfare and enthusiasm on Vasant Panchami, which is considered to be her birthday. But, otherwise all her devotees and those who wish to seek her blessings for learning and spirituality worship her throughout the year. A lot is achieved by worshipping her if we do so with complete devotion. We must worship her with utmost concentration and intense yearning, and have the spiritual knowledge to acquire the art or education that we wish to learn.
Those willing to go the spiritual path can acquire the 18 main vidyas and upa-vidyas by worshipping Goddess Saraswati. All the knowledge required to lead the worldly aspects in life can also be attained. The Vedas
she holds in her hands shows that she has the power to grant her devotees with the potency of imbibing even the most complicated knowledge.
Goddess Saraswati is also considered to be the Mother of Vaani
or speech. She is always calm and can bless her devotees with pleasant speech and actions so that one does not hurt others’ feelings by speaking or doing wrong. The devotee who prays devotionally to the Goddess starts paying minute attention to every action he performs and every word he speaks, and starts improving upon any mistakes he makes.
