Saraswati, the wife of Brahma, is the deity of untold beauty and learning. She presides over education and the arts, and is said to have given Her husband Brahma His five heads when She circled Him and new heads kept popping up on His neck to see Her, so enamoured was He. Her yantra, studded with mantras and a flawless iconography of Hers in the centre, has been designed for academic success should you combine it with hard work and commitment to your books. Her haloed figure rests on a freshly bloomed lotus on a mountain stream. Her vahana, the swan, looks on as She strums the characteristic veena. The mantra employed for this yantra is, "Om shree vidya dayeni/Saraswatiya Namaha".
