Hindu Goddess of Music and thought

So for me Music, Art Poetry and Literature are like essentials to my life, My Blog is always going to try and reflect that, but one way I find to honour the arts,is to post something about Saraswati, the Goddess in Hindu of those things. Here isĀ  some info about her from http://www.koausa.org/Gods/God10.html

Goddess Saraswati is usually symbolized in white sari she adornsĀ  it reflects her essential purity. In her popular images and pictures, Goddess Sarasvati is depicted with four arms wearing a white saree and seated on a white lotus. Her four arms represent the four aspects of human personality in learning which are mind, intellect, alertness and ego. It is also believed that these four arms represent four Vedas which is the primary sacred books of Hindus. The Vedas represent poetry, prose and music which are the three main forms of literature. The book in one hand represents the prose which is the divine true knowledge and also her perfection of the sciences and scriptures. A rosary or a garland of crystals on the other hand represents poetry which is the power of meditation and spirituality.
