According to Hindu mythology, after the origin of the cosmic world by Lord Brahma, a great pandemonium dominated supreme in the cosmos. But Brahma felt confused 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 formed the Universe equipped with the eternal source of intelligence provided by the Goddess Saraswati.
