Significance Of Goddess Saraswati 

Saraswati Maa is known as the goddess of knowledge, wisdom, art, music, and learning. She exhibits the inspirational and creative aspects of Shakti. When Lord Brahma was creating a world, it was full of chaos and lacked creativity, peace & prosperity. It was then he realized that this world could become a better place through knowledge. After this realization, Goddess Saraswati emerged riding a swan from the mouth of Brahma Ji. She is depicted holding the Vedas and a Veena through which she brings knowledge and rhythm into the world. The swan of the Goddess represents purity that one should have in their thoughts 7 actions. It means that we should find knowledge in everything just like the Swan finds its food in the mud. 

In the Hindu culture, every knowledge is sacred since it is considered a blessing from the Saraswati Maa. She bestows individuals with both worldly and spiritual knowledge.
