Goddess Saraswati is the consort of Lord Brahma and is the presiding deity for learning. She bestows knowledge related to all art forms like music, dance, acting, sculture, painting etc. She is also known as Vagdevi as she is the giver of speech. As per Hindu tradition before commencing learning of any art form or education, prayers are offered to Lord Ganesha and Goddess Saraswati and one’s own guru.
For people who want to become proficient in art forms and seek knowledge in any form should pray to Devi Sarawati.
Goddess Saraswati is always depicted in white clothes, sitting on a white lotus. White symbolizes purity.
