Goddess Saraswati History

In one of the ancient vedas of hinduism, Rigveda[1] refers the Goddess Saraswathi and has verses/slokas for her. The festival Vasant Panchami (aka Saraswathi Pooja) is celebrated every year on the fifth day of Magha (Indian month). On that date, many young children start their first day of schooling to learn the alphabets.

Other than India, countries such as Vietnam, Japan, Indonesia and Myanmar revere Saraswati as a goddess of education, music and arts[2].

The word Saraswati (also spelled as Sarasvati, Saraswathy, Saraswathi or Saraswathy) is originated from Sanskrit as a combination of two words namely[3]:

  • Sāra (सार) meaning “Essence“.
  • Sva (स्व) meaning “one self

So Saraswati means “one who leads to essence of self knowledge[4]; It also means “One who Possesses plenty of water“; hence the Hindu river Saraswati was named after her.

Goddess Sarawathi is the wife of Lord Brahmma.
