Saraswati Mantra: AIM

(pronounced I’m)

Saraswati is the highest form of the creative energy. She is represents purity and sattva (the pure quality). Saraswati delivers the pure teachings from the scriptures from the celestial plane. Any form of study can be augmented by her propitiation.

The word Saraswati means she who has flow, speech, who in her essence is her self. Saraswati was born of Brahma the creator and then became his consort after creating the beauty of the Universe through her wisdom. She is the first of the trinity of deities for birth, life and death. She represents the creative forces. Seen as communing with the gods and highest teachings, she is absorbed with her articles of learning: her four arms are said to share the knowledge of the four books of the vedas, she also has mala beads to practice japa mantra on and plays a veena, a musical instrument to chant the divine names of god. She carries a water pot, the water symbolizes the ability to wash away the impure. She has a pen and paper for writing. She is riding on a white swan, or seated next to a peacock, wearing white, adorned in the simplest of white cloths. She is less associated with the material aspects of adornment or practical knowledge and more concerned with the spiritual teachings.

The white color itself is a symbol for purity and truth.

The swan is an animal/bird who can separate the pure from the impure through its digestive powers showing us the power of the discerning mind to decipher the truth. Saraswati is an independent form, not often seen with anyone else. She does not have children and is rarely seen with Lord Brahma. Instead she is communing with the highest aspect of herself. The Saraswati River in India is (now dry) said to be the river of the goddess. She flows through your body and ends at the tip of your tongue.

When you feel you need to get out of your own way and let the creative forces flow through you, it is the energy of Saraswati Ma that you are calling for. Some self study, study of the scriptures and focus on higher learning will connect you with these channels as will creative practices like music, writing, dance, art and the spiritual practice of meditation. Learning and teaching are both practices that Saraswati presides over.

This is not the art born of sweat and guts, but rather the art born of some transmission of the highest teachings. Some divinely inspired bliss-filled moments. The sweetest times when teaching are the ones when the channel opens and some truths flow through. In those moments Saraswati has revealed herself. The energy of Saraswati resides in the face. As you recite AIM you can place one hand on your face and gaze at the center of the Saraswati Yantra to bring this Saraswati energy to life within you.
