Devi Saraswati – The Goddess of Music

On the occassion of World Music Day and we shall know of how Music and our Indian Gods go hand in hand..

Today we shall know of Devi Saraswathi – the Goddess of Music and all Fine arts 

Saraswati is perhaps the most ancient goddess that is still widely worshipped today. She is the Hindu muse: the inspiration for all music, poetry, drama and science. Musicians pray to her before performing and students ask for her help before taking a test. She is the wife or consort of Brahma, the creator god who is rarely worshipped anymore.

Saraswathi

In statues and paintings, Saraswati is fair-skinned and dressed in white to symbolize pure illumination. She rides a swan or a goose, and has four hands: in one she holds a book; in another she holds prayer beads (because she is the source of spiritual knowledge, too); her other two hands hold a vina, a sitar-like musical instrument.

Saraswati is especially revered by students and teachers
