In Hindu mythology, Saraswati is the divine consort of Lord Brahma, the
creator of the universe. She is the Goddess of learning, arts, knowledge
and wisdom. Students come to Saraswati to seek her blessings in their
quest for knowledge and excellence. She is generally shown to have four
arms, which represent the four aspects of human personality in learning:
mind, intellect, alertness, and ego. The book in one hand represent
true knowledge. The mala of crystals on the other hand, representing the
power of spirituality. A pot of sacred water, representing creative and
purificatory powers, and lastly the musical instrument Vine represents
her perfection of all arts and sciences.
The Sanskrit word sara means "essence" and swa means "self." Thus Saraswati means "the essence of the self.
