As the goddess of culture and learning, Saraswati was popular among the Brahmanical religion, as well as among the Buddhists and the Jains. Vak, Vagdevi, Bharati, Vani, etc are some other names by which she is known. Saraswati as an individual goddess seems at first to have been consorted with Brahma. According to Matsya Purana, Brahma performed austre meditation in order to create. And amongst the children thus created was Saraswati. Indian mythology also refer to her as Brahmani, or the wife of Brahma.

She is represented here sitting on a lotus seat with the right leg gracefully crossing over the left knee. She rests the veena close to her and uses the front two hands to vibrate the strings. In the left hand, she holds the book, indicating her association with learning. A serene expression is on the face; eyes in meditative stare and long, thick hair falls on her back. Her crown is not very tall; has a prabhavali behind and further behind is a distinctive white halo.

The foreground has various colours, mainly, shades of blue, representing the cosmic waters. The lotus, Saraswati's seat, in white is symbolic of purity, opening its petals above the dirt of ponded water. The main painting is in pure, traditional colours but the background is resplendent with yellow, peach and mauve, each blending into the other.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
