Hello Owls,

my favourite Indian goddess is Saraswati.

Cheers, Eule


Indian goddess Saraswati Saraswati


In Hinduism Saraswati (Sanskrit: सरस्वती sarasvatī) is the goddess of knowledge, music and the arts. She is the consort of Brahma[1]. Saraswati is considered to be the "mother of the Vedas".[2]

The name Saraswati came from "saras" (meaning "flow") and "wati" (meaning "a women"). So, Saraswati is symbol of knowledge; its flow (or growth) is like a river and knowledge is supremely alluring, like a beautiful women.

Saraswati is known as a Guardian Deity in Buddhism who upholds the teachings of Gautam Buddha by offering protection and assistance to practitioners. She is known in Burmese as သူရဿတီ (pronounced [θù raʔ θatì]), Chinese as 辯才天 Biàncáitiān, in Thai as สุรัสวดี Surasawadee and in Japanese as 弁才天/ 弁財天 Benzaiten.

In the folklore of Durga Puja in Bengal, Saraswati is considered to be a daughter of Shiva along with her sister Lakshmi and her brothers Ganesha and Karthikeya.
