How many Saraswati idols can be kept at home?
Devi Saraswati confers the reward of wisdom and
divine knowledge to her devotees. In your home, you can keep one goddess Saraswati
idol, preferably in the Puja ghar where she is worshipped daily. You can
also keep the Saraswati idol alongside Devi
to receive the powers of the Trinity of Goddesses-
“Tridevi”. More than one idol of Devi Saraswati will not bring you any positive
results and end up disturbing the balance of energies, as per Vastu.
is the significance of the Saraswati symbol?
Devi Saraswati is the Hindu goddess
that embodies knowledge, arts, music, wisdom, learning, language, oratory,
expression, creative work, and anything whose flow purifies the essence and
self of a person. Saraswati connotes a river deity.
Her four arms are shown
as holding a book, a rosary, a water pot, and a musical instrument called the
vena. Each of these items has a symbolic meaning in Hinduism. Other symbols are
the color white, lotus, Swan, or peacock.
four arms symbolize a variety of concepts: Her perseverance and transcendence.
Her front arms depict the Goddess' activity in the material realm while the
back arms activity in the spiritual realm. The four elements of inner life
include mind, intellect, ego, and Consciousness.
we keep the Saraswati statue at home?
Yes but must follow the
Vastu directions. An idol of Maa
Saraswati should be installed in the West or southwest as the place
symbolizes education. The Idol must face the East direction and must have
sunlight entering that room. As per Vastu, should
not keep 3 idols of the same Goddess, as it can bring upheaval and bad luck.
Always place an idol of Maa Saraswati near the study table.
Saraswati is not worshiped?
In my opinion, it is
not true. Saraswati mata is the most worshiped deity. All the schools and
colleges have her temples. The Saraswati puja is performed on the Hindu
holidays Vasant Panchami and Navratri, and one can perform a Saraswati puja in
his home any time he wants to call on Goddess
Saraswati. Anyways one doesn’t need to worship his mother for her
blessings. Just respect her knowledge, keep learning and use it for the best.
Very often in various
mantras and pujas in the Shakta tradition, we worship the Goddesses Saraswati
There are no restrictions to keep their worship apart. Together they form the
Tridevi and are often worshiped as a group.
