Description
About the Book

The Goddess of Knowledge and learning, Saraswati is Lord Brahma’s first and most perfect creation. She was the one who helped Lord Brahma create the universe. Saraswati is not a warrior goddess but she uses her wisdom and intellect to help the race of gods and her devotees during times of trouble—sometimes by even taking on the form of a river!

About the Author

Gauri Kelkar is a freelance writer and editor whose area if interest now extends into the vast and varied mythological orchid of gods and goddesses. A first-timer in the world of children’s writing where imagination rules, the journey from writing where imagination rules, the journey from writing content for adults to writing tales for children has been fraught with literary challenge—one that she has enjoyed thoroughly!

Subir Roy graduated in Applied Art from Government College of Art. He has contributed extensively to several children’s publications in India and abroad. He is a regular invitee to various art workshops around the world.

Preface

Saraswati, the Goddess of Knowledge, Speech and Music, was created by Lord Brahma to inspire him in the creation of the universe.

Saraswati is depicted with four arms and is shown sitting on a white lotus. She always wears white, symbolising purity, and hervehicle is the swan to represent the ability to differentiate between good and bad. The veena, her musical instrument, is a symbol of creativity. She is considered to be the mother of the Hindu sacred texts, the Vedas.

Though Saraswati never took up arms, she used her powers of knowledge and her intelligence to save the race of gods and mankind from evil forces. She showers blessing of eternal wisdom on her devotees. Goddess Saraswati is especially worshipped by those in pursuit of learning and creative endeavours. She is prayed to on the occasion of Vasant Panchami that falls during the month of Magha, according to the Hindu calendar.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
