Goddess Saraswathi songs
Goddess Saraswathi is the first goddess of the three great Hindu goddesses. She is the wife of Lord Brahma the creator of the universe. Goddess Saraswathi is the goddess of learning, virtue, and wisdom. People pray to her to get good knowledge and to succeed in any work they begin. Saraswati is said to possess the powers of speech, wisdom, and learning. Saraswati is regarded as the dispeller of chaos and confusion.
Birth of Goddess Saraswathi
When Lord Brahma started creating the world there was total chaos and he did not know how to correct it. He thought there was no way. At that time he heard a voice saying,” Why there is no way everything can be set right with knowledge”. When Lord Brahma was wondering who was giving him that instruction Goddess Saraswathi came out from his mouth dressed in white in a white swan with the veena in one hand and the Vedas in the other hand. In her third hand she had the sacred mala and with the fourth hand, she was playing the veena.
The music of the veena was so soothing and gave Brahma the mind to set thing right and everything started taking shape. Chaos changed into creation; the sun, the moon, and the stars were born. The oceans filled and seasons changed. The joyous Brahma then named Saraswati, Vagdevi, the goddess of speech and sound. Thus Brahma became the creator of the world with Saraswati as his source of wisdom.
The sound of mantras filled the universe with vital energy or prana. The cosmos acquired a structure: the sky dotted with stars rose to form the heavens; the sea sank into the abyss below, the earth stood in between.
Gods became lords of the celestial spheres; demons ruled the nether regions, humans walked on earth. The sun rose and set, the moon waxed and waned, the tide flowed and ebbed. Seasons changed, seeds germinated, plants bloomed and withered, animals migrated and reproduced as randomness gave way to the rhythm of life.
Thus goddess Saraswathi was the first of the creations of Lord Brahma.
