According to Hindu mythology, after the creation of the cosmic universe by Lord Brahma, a great pandemonium reigned supreme in the cosmos. But Brahma felt bewildered for he realized that His cosmic universe was bereft of order, conception and configuration. He created the embodiment of wisdom and art. Goddess Saraswati emerged out His mouth.
Then all the celestial bodies including the sun, the moon, and the stars were created and organized under strict orders. The oceans sprang up and the seasons started changing periodically. Ecstatic Brahma named the Goddess Vagdevi, the goddess of speech and sound. In this way, Brahma created the Universe equipped with the eternal source of wisdom provided by the Goddess Saraswati.
Tridevis comprising Maha Kali, Maha Lakshmi, and Maha Saraswati. They are the consorts of the trinity of Lord Shiva, Lore Vishnu, and Lord Brahma. In the process of creation, maintenance, and destruction of the Universe, all three goddesses also played pivotal roles. Maha Saraswati is depicted as eight-armed sitting on a white lotus flower. There She is wielding in Her hands the bell, trident, plowshare, conch, pestle, discus, bow, and arrow. All these suggest that Maha Saraswati was not merely the goddess of knowledge and arts.
The Goddess Saraswati equipped with her Veena (lute) reached a beautiful garden occupied by the Gandharvas. There She started playing her Veena and creating enchanting tunes of ragas and raginis until the air of the garden is engulfed with a melodious rendition of the music. Captivated by the enchanting music the Gandharvas were drawn to the garden.
They entreated the Goddess Saraswati to teach them the divine music. But She agreed to teach them provided they should return the urn of ‘Someras’. The Gandharvas were so captivated by both the refulgent beauty of the goddess and Her melodious music that they agreed to Her proposal. Thus Saraswati recovered the urn of elixir from the Gandharvas’ custody. And the Gandharvas also became maven in music and art enough to perform in the court of heaven in presence of the gods and goddesses.
Saraswati is often depicted as a beautiful lady elegantly attired in a pure white outfit. She is seated on a beautiful asana with a swan besides. Her complexion is as charming as the moon. Necklace made of beautiful minute carvings. Her hands are adorned with a book of the Vedas, crystal mala, a pot of water, and a musical instrument called Veena.
