Along with Lakshmi and Parvati, she helps the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu & Shiva in the creation, maintenance & destruction of the Universe.
Actually, word Saraswati is a fusion word of Saras & Vati where Saras means pooling water and Vati means she who posses. Thus the word Sarawati means she who has ponds/ lakes/ pooling water or one with plenty of water. Originally Goddess Saraswati is associated with the river known as Saraswati. You will get all about Sarawati through this article i.e. worship & rituals, Saraswati & Brahma, Sarawati Shaligram and much more.
Appearance & Attributes of SaraswatiGenerally, Saraswati appears as a beautiful woman dressed in pure white and seated on a white lotus. She symbolizes light, knowledge & truth. She is not only a symbol of knowledge but also the experience of the highest reality. The iconography of Saraswati is typically in white themes i.e. white dress, white flowers, white swan. White colour symbolizes Sattwa Guna or purity, discrimination for true knowledge, wisdom & insight.
She is as white as the moon, wears white ornaments, radiating with beauty, holding a book & a pen in her hands. Goddess Sarawati always appears near a flowing river or other body of water. One of the most famous features of Saraswati is Veena which is a musical instrument. It represents all creative arts & sciences.
Worship & Rituals/ Vasant PanchamiSaraswati has her on festivals Saraswati puja which is celebrated on the 1st day of Spring so this festival is also known as Basant Panchami. Once, the world creator Lord Brahma went on a world tour then he found the whole universe silent. After seeing this he felt like somewhat missing in the creation of the universe. Brahmaji stayed in a place and sprinkle a little water from his Kamandal (a holy pot) then suddenly a goddess appeared with a veena in his hand i.e. Goddess Sarawati. She bowed to Brahmaji and in this way she was called a daughter of God Brahma. Thus on this occasion every year Banasnt Panchami is celebrated.
On the appearance of Maa Sarawati, Brahma told her that all the creatures in this world are silent and they can not talk to each other. Mother Sarawati asked him on this that what she has to do now. Brahma instructs her that she has to give the sound to this world with the sound of her Veena so that they can communicate and talk to each other. In this way, they can also understand the emotions of each other and can help each other. Thus she provided a voice to all the creatures.
Saraswati is the wife of God Brahma. Lord Brahma represents the abstract whereas Saraswati represents action & reality. It is mentioned in Majayapuran & Saraswati Puran that Brahma is the creator of this universe. While creating this universe he gave birth to Saraswati, Sandhya, and Brahmin. As Goddess Saraswati was beautiful and magnificent so many started adoring her along with Brahma Ji himself.
When she came to know that he got attracted towards her she seeks help from Shiva and started running away from the eyes of Brahma. But as we know that Brahma has four faces & eyes in all directions she cannot hide from him. At last, Saraswati gives up and married with God Brahma. It is also mentioned that the goddess hid in the sky but he found her with the help of his 5th head.

Pujas are performed by the highly qualified and SIDDHA priests at Shaligram Shala Puja ServicesShaligram Shala Puja and Yajna Services have a team of highly qualified M.A., PhD. (Sanskrit) priests and most distinguished Brahmins (Acharyas and Shastries who are well-read and have studied Vedas, Upnishads, Puranas, Tantras and Karmkand in its entirety and depth. These priests have post graduated from the Kashi and are well trained in performing all the Pujas as per Vedic, Tantrik and Karmakand rituals. These priests from Kashi have been performing very big pujas for the last 10 to 20 years.

How do you ensure that the correct number of Japas is being really done by the priests for you or not?Shaligram Shala puja and Yajna services ensure that each priest takes a Sankalp before starting the puja with betel leaf, betel nut, flower and small qty. of rice. Since all priests are Kashi trained and are initiated, hence once the Sankalpa is taken individually by them, they are bound to complete the stated number Japas positively. In the case of most of the other websites doing pujas, normally all pundits avoid taking such kind of Sankalp and there is a strong likelihood that they do not complete the stated Japa. Hence the positive effect of the puja will not be experienced by the devotee.
