Goddess Saraswati and Mantras for Knowledge

Hindu Religion has so many Gods and Goddesses. Saraswati is the consort of Lord Brahma and is the Goddess of wisdom and learning. She is the one who gives the essence (sara) of our own self (swa). She is considered as the personification of all knowledge. Her presence is elegant and she is depicted as wearing a pure white sari and seated on a white lotus representing purity and brilliance. She is also called 'Shwetambari' because of her fondness for white attire.

Sri Saraswati carries a Veena which represents mastery over the physical organs and actions where the veena is symbolic of life and strings are symbolic of feelings. The Book she carries is symbolic of Knowledge. The Crystal Beads Rosary having 50 beads on her hands is symbolic of concentration and transparency. The number of beads represents the number of letters of Sanskrit. She has complete knowledge of meditation and Yoga represented by bow and arrow. She has four hands representing four aspects of human personality in learning; mind, intellect, alertness and ego. The Swan reflects her power of discrimination and judgment. The white swan, lotus, cloths and white ornaments are symbolic of her chastity and purity. The Peacock is symbolic of worldly knowledge, fame and success.

Goddess Saraswati Mantras can be chanted for Knowledge, Success In Education and better Career prospects.

Saraswati Vandana Mantra, Gayatri Mantra and Beej Mantras

Goddess Saraswati is said to possess the powers of speech, wisdom and learning. Sarasvati Mantra is an important mantra and people pray to her for guidance and knowledge. Reciting the Mantras of Sarasvati are said to increase learning power. Saraswati Mantras can therefore help those who want success in Education and Career. The Saraswathi Beeja is 'AIM'.

Saraswati Vandana Mantra

"Yaa Kundendu Tushaara Haaradhavalaa, Yaa Shubhravastraavritha

Yaa Veenavara Dandamanditakara, Yaa Shwetha Padmaasana

Yaa Brahmaachyutha Shankara Prabhritibhir Devaisadaa Vanditha

Saa Maam Paatu Saraswati Bhagavatee Nihshesha Jaadyaapaha"

Meaning

May Goddess Saraswati, who is fair and beautiful like the jasmine-colored moon and whose pure white garland resembles frosty dew drops; who is adorned in radiant white attire, on whose arm rests the veena, and whose throne is a white lotus; who is surrounded and respected by the Gods, Protect me. May you remove my lethargy and brighten my life with the light of knowledge."

Saraswati Gayatri Mantra

Om Vaakdeviyai cha Vidhmahe
Virinji Pathniyai cha Dheemahe
Thanno Vani Prachodayath.

Saraswati Beej Mantra

Aum Shreem Bhreem Saraswatyea Namaha

However, Goddess Saraswati is not worshiped much in temples. But she is worshiped during Saraswathi Pooja or Navarathiri in India.

    The first line of the first paragraph is in-valid. Hinduism, or Sanata Dharma, has only 3 main deities each with their consort; usually in the role of women, without which the three deities would have no power.Each of these deities and their consorts take carnations , do not mistake that for "a" particular god or goddess.

    My most humble affection, Randy.

    Hi!

    While reading article I have found discussion about SO-HUM, regarding this I have something to share. SO-HUM is a powerful self realization mantra is means AS I AM. When we inhale a sound SO is produced and as we exhale HUM sound is produced. While chanting SO-HUM we have to bring our consciousness to our breathing pattern. It would be very powerful if we recite it mentally in synchronization with our breathing.

    Regards.

    Thanks for the nice comments dear. You don't need to be a Saint to do that. Performing your duties properly as a human being is also a form of worship.

    It is just a few hours drive from Hyderabad. Yes you do have many mantras. I get such good vibes reading your hubs. Although I am not a very religious person but I do feel one day I might take my heritage more seriously (at least my mom wants me to). :-)

    Near Hyderabad there is a wonderful Saraswati temple: http://www.basaratemple.org/ As per our traditions "akshara abhyasam" performed in such places tends to make the child very good in studies. I will now check out that blog of yours too. I just went to your link and nice mantras about Krishna/Rama. Thumbs up.

    Thank you for enlightening me about the So-Hum mantra meditation, I have already started chanting. I want to know which mantra will improve my People skills, which are very much required in the practical world i.e. knowing the intentions and strengths of other people and acting accordingly? Thanking you for creating this hub.

    The SO- HUM can be helpful. You can practice mantra meditation where you would repeat or chant sooting mantras or positive affirmations like 'I am going to do it', 'I am at peace', 'I am happy' depending on your requirement.

    Thanks Anpadh and Aj for your visits.

    For a long time I used an image of Saraswati as my laptop wallpaper. I like both her appearance and what she stands for. I bought a small bronze of her as a memento of my time working in Mumbai. Thanks for this hub.
