Goddess Saraswati destroying the Demon of Ignorance,
granting us knowledge and divine wisdom.
Saraswati, Goddess of knowledge and the arts,
is the river of consciousness that enlivens creation;
she is the dawn-goddess whose rays dispel the darkness of ignorance.
Her energy is essential for discrimination, academics and performing arts
and blesses us with perfection of all arts and sciences.
Saraswati actually means "the one who flows".
Saraswati is a river of knowledge that flows in the highest heaven of Brahma
and descends into our minds through the doors of learning to become established in us
as knowledge and wisdom.
She symbolizes the purifier in our quest for liberation.
She personifies in humans civilized behavior, refined tastes and artistic talent.
Saraswati grants wisdom, knowledge, creativity and intuition
for the flowering of our minds and refinement of our character.
