What Does Saraswati Stand For?
Saraswati stands for creativity and learning. She is sometimes shown to have a pen and paper in her hands, representing knowledge and putting creativity to use. Once you have figured out how to use your knowledge, Saraswati is all about putting it into action and making your creativity a reality. She is holding a veena, which symbolises embracing the creative arts.
How To Embrace Saraswati's Energy
As a goddess of the arts, embrace Saraswati's energy by letting go and taking advantage of your creative side. There is always going to be a reason not to start a new creative project, but music, dancing, painting and learning are fundamental to our well-being. Step into your creative power and don't let a day go by without exploring that side to yourself. Enjoy the non-material parts of life.
