Saraswati Mantra


The Saraswati Mantra (Wisdom Mantra) is a tribute to Goddess Saraswati, the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, arts, wisdom and nature. In Hinduism, Saraswati represents intelligence, consciousness, cosmic knowledge, creativity, education, enlightenment, music, the arts, eloquence and power.

It is believed that goddess Saraswati endows human beings with the powers of speech, wisdom and learning. She has four hands representing four aspects of human personality in learning: mind, intellect, alertness and ego. She has sacred scriptures in one hand and a lotus flower (the symbol of true knowledge) in the second. With her other two hands she plays the music of love and life on a string instrument called the veena. She is dressed in white (the symbol of purity), and rides on a white swan (symbolizing Sattwa Guna or purity and discrimination).

She is considered the mother of the Vedas, and chants to her, called the 'Saraswati Vandana' often begin and end Vedic lessons. The four arms also represent the four Vedas, the primary sacred books for Hindus. The Vedas, in turn, represent the three forms of literature:

Poetry - the Rigveda contains hymns, representing poetry.
Prose - Yajur Veda contains prose.
Music - Sama Veda represents music.
Philosophy - Atharvaveda

Saraswati is also a prominent figure in Buddhist iconography as the consort of Manjushri. The learned and the erudite attach greater importance to the worship of Goddess Saraswati and believe that only she can grant them 'moksha', the final liberation of the soul.

Saraswati mantras are for the benefit of all, to increase their knowledge, as increase in knowledge is the gateway to happiness. It is said that Goddess Saraswati comes to reside in the tip of a devotee allows you to speak and write clearly. Saraswati chants help students to clear exams by increasing their concentration and memory retention power. Poets, advocates, singers, artists, orators, teachers etc. can benefit from the grace of Goddess Saraswati.
