Goddess Saraswati of Learning Idol

Saraswati, the Hindu goddess of knowledge and creative arts, manifests in the essence of life, the free flowing of learning, wisdom and consciousness. Goddess Saraswati is the daughter of Shiva and Durga  and the companion of Lord Bahma, the creator of this universe. Her four hands symbolize the four aspects of learning: mind, intellect, awareness and ego. She holds the sacred scriptures "Vedas" in one hand and a japamala in the other representing the power of meditation and spirituality.
