Indian Mythology (by ApamNapat)

Saraswati - The Goddess of Learning and Wisdom


She is the goddess of wisdom and learning. She is the wife of Brahma, and is usally depicted sitting on a lotus flower, with a Veena (stringed musical instrument) and scriptures in her hands. She is always depicted wearing a white robe, as a symbol of purity. She is beseeched by scholars and is their patron deity.

Compared to Parvati and Laxmi, she does not take part in many mythological events.
