Saraswati is the Goddess of knowledge, music, arts, wisdom and learning and is revered in both Hindu as well as Buddhist faith.
She holds the musical instrument, Veena symbolic of expressing knowledge that creates harmony. Saraswati is associated with anuraga, the love for and rhythm of music, which represents all emotions and feelings expressed in speech or music.
She is often associated with a swan or a hans, a sacred bird, that symbolizes spiritual perfection, transcendence and moksha. Sometimes she is shown with the peacock depicting colorful splendor and celebration of dance. The peacock as the devourer of snakes is believed to have the alchemical ability to transmute the serpent poison of self into the radiant plumage of enlightenment.
