The Goddess Saraswati is the very manifestation of knowledge, music, art, speech, wisdom, and learning. =
She is generally shown to have four arms, holding a book, a rosary, a water pot, and a musical instrument called the veena. Each of these items have a symbolic meaning in Hinduism. The book she holds symbolizes the Vedas representing the universal, divine, eternal, and true knowledge as well as all forms of learning. A mala of crystals, representing the power of meditation, inner reflection, and spirituality. A pot of water represents the purifying power to separate right from wrong, the clean from the unclean, and essence from the inessential. In some texts, the pot of water is symbolism for soma, the drink that liberates and leads to knowledge. The most famous feature on Saraswati is a musical instrument called a veena, this represents all creative arts and sciences and her holding it symbolizes expressing knowledge that creates harmony.
