As the goddess of culture and learning, Saraswati was popular among the Brahmanical religion, as well as among the Buddhists and the Jains. Vak, Vagdevi, Bharati, Vani, etc are some other names by which she is known. Saraswati as an individual goddess seems at first to have been consorted with Brahma. According to Matsya Purana, Brahma performed austre meditation in order to create. And amongst the children thus created was Saraswati. Indian mythology also refer to her as Brahmani, or the wife of Brahma.

She is represented here sitting on a lotus seat with the right leg gracefully crossing over the left knee. She rests the veena close to her and uses the front two hands to vibrate the strings. In the left hand, she holds the book, indicating her association with learning. A serene expression is on the face; eyes in meditative stare and long, thick hair falls on her back. Her crown is not very tall; has a prabhavali behind and further behind is a distinctive white halo.

The foreground has various colours, mainly, shades of blue, representing the cosmic waters. The lotus, Saraswati's seat, in white is symbolic of purity, opening its petals above the dirt of ponded water. The main painting is in pure, traditional colours but the background is resplendent with yellow, peach and mauve, each blending into the other.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
