Saraswati is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, art, speech, wisdom, and learning. She is a pan-Indian deity, and collectively with the goddesses Lakshmi and Parvati, is known as the Tridevi. She also revered in Jainism and Buddhism. > The earliest known mention of Saraswati as a goddess is in the Rigveda and she has been worshipped continuously from the Vedic period to today. She is generally depicted with four arms (which hold four symbols: a book, a rosary, a water pot, and a musical instrument called the veena).

Wikipedia states the etymology of Saraswati “is a Sanskrit fusion word of saras (सरस्) meaning “pooling water”, but also sometimes translated as “speech”; and vati (वती), 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 sarasu-ati (सरसु+अति) 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.
