Sara means an ocean. Swa means one’s own. Ti means the personification or embodiment. Saraswati is the embodiment of one’s own ocean of experience. All the names which correspond to all the forms, all the knowledge of individual experience make Saraswati one of the most important Goddesses in existence. Saraswati presides over Music, Art, Philosophy, Literature and Creativity in general. She is the Goddess worshipped by all students who long for progress in their studies. She has a contract with all students: “If you worship Saraswati before you study, She will help with your homework. If you worship before any examination, She will help your test scores.” Even more than that, she bestows the boon of All Pervading Knowledge to sincere devotees. When we pray to Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth, she arrives with Saraswati because without Knowledge, we cannot have wealth. Knowledge leads us to our true wealth, and it is our privelege and joy to share this knowledge with everyone. May the Goddess Saraswati blesses us all.
