Saraswati is the goddess of learning and culture. She is popular with the Hindus, the Buddhists and the Jains. The Buddhists have made her the consort of Manjushri, the Bodhisattva of Wisdom. In Hindu mythology she is sometimes consorted with Brahma and sometimes with Vishnu or Ganesha.

Lotuses bloom in the heavenly oceans. On one such full bloomed lotus stands goddess Saraswati, elegantly in a tribhanga position (three curves to the body). She looks resplendent in an elaborately crafted crown with a prabhavali. Jewellery adorns all parts of her body – the neck, the arms, the feet. Since she is worshipped as the goddess of speech and learning, she holds a palm leaf book in one of the four hands. She holds a veena (lute) diagonally across her shoulder. In one hand she holds a lotus bud, strengthening her association with Brahma. Along with the long stemmed flower, she also holds a rosary

The artist has portrayed the goddess as beautiful and gentle. There is gentleness in the eyes and calm on the face. The multiple limbs are well formed and the hands have long fingers conveying deftness and creativity. Next to her image is a swan. The bird has been relegated as being a less important accessory, It is neither absolutely realistic nor abstract. The artist has used all his ingenuity on the image of the goddess.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma
