*Saraswati is the consort (wife) of Lord Brahma, the creator. She symbolizes all forms of knowledge which is the basic pursuit of human life. This shloka is always recited before starting a class of education or learning. The pursuit of learning is considered as a duty of every human being in Vedic culture. Saraswati holds Veena (stringed musical instrument) in her hands. So she is also known asVeenaadhari (the one holding Veenaa). She is also known as Vennaa Paani. Paani = hands. Most of the Gods choose an animal as a vehicle. Saraswati’s vehicle (vaahan / vaahanam) is peacock (mayoor).
