Saraswati is the goddess of arts, music, knowledge, and wisdom in the Hindu religion. Goddess Sarasvati is said to possess the powers of speech, wisdom and learning. Sarsvati is regarded as the dispeller of chaos and confusion. Saraswati Mantra is an important mantra of the Hindus that is recited for higher knowledge and wisdom. In India, people pray to her for guidance and knowledge. Maa Sarasvati Mantra is as follows: "Yaa Kundendu Tushaara Haaradhavalaa, Yaa Shubhravastraavritha Yaa Veenavara Dandamanditakara, Yaa Shwetha Padmaasana Yaa Brahmaachyutha Shankara Prabhritibhir Devaisadaa Vanditha Saa Maam Paatu Saraswati Bhagavatee Nihshesha Jaadyaapaha" Meaning: Goddess Saraswati is fair and beautiful like the jasmine-colored moon. Her white garland resembles the icy dew drops. She is decked in pure white attire. A white lotus serves as the throne of Maa Saraswati, on whose arm rests Veena. We pray Maha Saraswati, who is surrounded and respected by the Gods to bestow her blessings on us. May the goddess remove our lethargy and brighten our life with light of knowledge.
