Saraswati Devi is the goddess of arts, speech, knowledge, music, and mind power. Saraswati Mantra is a prayer to goddess Saraswati for her blessings to illuminate your mind, find the knowledge you seek, and to instill confidence and strong communicative skills so you always speak your truth and keep your soul connection in all the words you speak.
Ya Kundendu Tusharahara Dhavala Ya Shubhra Vastravrita
Ya Veena Varadanda Manditakara Ya Shveta Padmasana
Ya Brahmachyuta Shankara Prabhritibihi Devaih Sada Pujita
Sa Mam Pattu Sarasvatee Bhagavatee Nihshesha Jadyapaha
May Goddess Saraswati,
who is fair like the jasmine-colored moon,
and whose pure white garland is like frosty dew drops;
who is adorned in radiant white attire,
on whose beautiful arm rests the veena,
and whose throne is a white lotus;
who is surrounded and respected by the gods, protect me.
May you fully remove my lethargy, sluggishness, and ignorance.
Goddess Saraswati wears a pure white dress, representing purity. She sits on a white swan symbolizing knowledge and truth. She holds a veena (the lute-like instrument) and through its strings, creativity and art flow to the world. She also holds a book symbolizing the Vedas, the original source of knowledge, and a mala or meditation beads for sadhana (spiritual practice) and the illusion-busting, material ego transcending power of meditation.
