The Goddess of Harmony

Saraswati is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, wisdom, learning, art and music. Together with Lakshmi and Parvati she forms a trinity. Saraswati is often depicted with four arms, in which she holds four items with symbolic meanings. The most important of them is a veena, a musical instrument which represents all creative arts and sciences, and Saraswati holding it symobolizes her knowledge of harmony. Thus some refer to her as the goddess of Harmony.

  1. Now that you mention it. I found the statue in the yard of a stone mason where it was braving the elements. The greenish parts may be the beginning of moss.


  2. Beautiful portait. So happy to have come across a Hindu god. Being a Hindu I would like to tell you she is the god we pray to before starting kids first school before our school exams. There’s a whole festival for goddess saraswathi which is an important factor for us Hindus. Thanks for posting it.
