Goddess Saraswati (Sarasvati) possesses the powers of speech, wisdom and learning. She is the river of consciousness that enlivens creation; she is the Dawn-Goddess whose rays dispel the darkness of ignorance. 

She has four hands representing four aspects of human personality in learning; mind, intellect, alertness and ego. She has sacred scriptures in one hand and a lotus (a symbol of true knowledge) in the second. With her other two hands she plays the music of love and life on the violin (veena).

She embodies all that is pure and sublime in Nature.  She is dressed in white (sign of purity) and rides on a white goose (swan).  Her mount, the swan, personifies pure knowledge and her herald, the peacock, is a symbol of the arts.
