Saraswati – a symbol of wisdom, art, and music – she emerged from the mind of Brahma as a striving for purity, knowledge, and all the most beautiful, she came out through the mouth of Brahma with the sound of SA. Saraswati gives a person the power of speech, wisdom, and education. She has four arms representing the four aspects of the human person in cognition: mind, intellect, wakefulness, and ego. She holds the scriptures in one hand and the lotus – the symbol of true knowledge – in the other. With two other hands, she plays the music of love and life on a stringed instrument called Viina (Vina). She is dressed in white – a symbol of purity – and sits on a white swan, which symbolizes Sattva-guna, the guna of purity and discrimination, the guna of goodness.
Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, each of them, have a consort – Shakti. Shakti Brahma is Saraswati. Saraswati rules over wisdom and arts, she invented writing.
In reality, the union of Sarasvati (knowledge) and Brahma (material creation) is only external, apparent. Sarasvati is the original spiritual potency of knowledge of the Supreme Lord. Therefore, Saraswati is worshiped separately from Brahma, and the greatest blessing of such worship is the attainment of the supreme wisdom – knowledge of God and our eternal relationship with Him. The name “Sarasvati” is translated as “our inner being”. Creation, creation can only be supported by “knowing how to create”. Another meaning is “the container of all tastes.” Thus, this confirms the conclusion of the Vedas that our essence is devotional service to Krishna in full knowledge of Him, with an incomparable nectar taste. Genuine knowledge is manifested through the aesthetic expression of one’s feelings for the Lord. White and yellow are especially important in Vasant Panchami. People prefer to wear yellow clothes on this holy day. Friends and relatives are treated to yellow sweets. Some perform Pitri Tarpan (ancestor worship) and also worship Kama Deva, the ruler of love.
The most important feature of this day is that on this day children are taught the first words, as this is an auspicious day to begin learning to read and write. Schools, universities, and other educational institutions organize a special ceremony in honor of Saraswati on this day.
Saints and spiritual people attach great importance to the worship of Saraswati. People of education and training worship Saraswati for enlightenment and enlightenment. They say there is no comparison between the status of a king and a scholar or spiritual person. The king is confined to the confines of his kingdom, while the scientist or spiritual person is respected and revered throughout the world. Vasanta Panchami – the day of the appearance of Saraswati Devi – the goddess of wisdom, speech, and fine arts – in India coincides with the first day of spring. And that’s pretty symbolic. Spring always symbolizes purity, beginning, hope, grace, and beauty.
The Vedas say that Sarasvati was born from the mouth of Lord Brahma, the “secondary” creator of the universe. Her unearthly beauty and purity attracted Lord Brahma, and he wanted to marry her. This “asocial” act caused Lord Brahma to be cursed, and therefore he is not given rituals of worship. Until now, only a few temples of Lord Brahma exist in all of India. In reality, the union of Sarasvati (knowledge) and Brahma (material creation) is only external, apparent. Sarasvati is the original spiritual potency of knowledge of the Supreme Lord.
