Vintage Saraswati Playing Veena Wood Carvings Barn Door Panel
Vintage Saraswati Carvings Barn Door Panel Hindu Goddess of Knowledge Door Panel. The earliest known mention of Saraswati as a goddess is in the Rigveda.
She has remained significant as a goddess from the Vedic period through modern times of Hindu traditions. Some Hindus celebrate the festival of Vasant Panchami (the fifth day of spring, and also known as Saraswati Puja and Saraswati Jayanti in so many parts of India) in her honour, and mark the day by helping young children learn how to write the letters of the alphabet on that day. The Goddess is also revered by believers of the Jain religion of west and central India, as well as some Buddhist sects. Saraswati, is a Sanskrit fusion word of saras meaning "pooling water", but also sometimes translated as "speech"; and vati meaning "she who possesses". Originally associated with the river or rivers known as Saraswati, this combination, therefore, means "she who has ponds, lakes, and pooling water" or occasionally "she who possesses speech".
It is also a Sanskrit composite word of surasa-vati which means "one with plenty of water". The word Saraswati appears both as a reference to a river and as a significant deity in the Rigveda. In initial passages, the word refers to the Sarasvati River and is mentioned as one among several northwestern Indian rivers such as the Drishadvati. Saraswati, then, connotes a river deity.
In Book 2, the Rigveda describes Saraswati as the best of mothers, of rivers, of goddesses. The goddess Saraswati is often depicted as a beautiful woman standing on lotus, which symbolizes light, knowledge and truth.
She not only embodies knowledge but also the experience of the highest reality. Her iconography is typically in white themes from dress to flowers to swan the colour symbolizing Sattwa Guna or purity, discrimination for true knowledge, insight and wisdom.
