Lush colors illuminate this serene, almost contemplative, wall hanging of the Hindu goddess Saraswati. She seems to be almost looking right through you. What does she want? In her hands Saraswati holds a book representing the Vedas, Hindu scripture, said to contain all knowledge, both worldly and spiritual. Another hand holds a mala signifying the power of both meditation and spirituality. Saraswati is playing on a musical instrument called a vina. It is said that the rhythm of her music represents the range of human emotions and feelings. Yet, with all this going on, the Saraswati seems to be staring directly at you. Why?
Saraswati is the goddess of the flowing river. Poetry, music, speech and art are flowing from her into your life. Her gifts transform us, teaching us how to listen and of the sanctity of words, their power, and care we need to master in using them. Saraswati reminds us to watch the words flowing from our lips, the thoughts pouring from our brain. This powerful goddess is the embodiment of consciousness, cosmic knowledge, intelligence, power, enlightenment, education, and creativity as well as the fountain of the arts.
