SARASVATI
Also known as SARASWATI

A picture showing the legend of SARASVATI taken from our Indian mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Indian Gods, Indian Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

Mother Goddess of Wisdom and Creative Artistry.

She rides a peacock or swan or sits on a lotus and is rather desirable to look at apart from having four arms. But she's not just a pretty face — she's into all the arts including Poetry, Music and Writing.

She is said to inhabit libraries so the extra arms must be useful for replacing books on shelves.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Sarasvati graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Sarasvati movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Sarasvati statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Sarasvati. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
