Hindu Mythology

SARASVATI

Hindu Education Goddess

Also known as SARASWATI

Mother Goddess of Learning 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.
