About meOur library is guided by and named in honour of the Divine Mother Saraswati. Saraswati Ma is the Goddess of learning, knowledge and wisdom of the highest spiritual kind. She is also the Goddess of fine arts and speech.

As a compound word, ‘Saraswati’ consists of ‘sar’ and ‘swa’; 'sar' meaning the essence (Essential Nature) and 'swa' the Self (the Higher Self).

Goddess Saraswati is generally represented as sitting on a white lotus, accompanied by her white swan (Her vehicle), holding a spiritual text or book, playing her veena (stringed musical instrument) and singing eternally the song of Divine Wisdom in the soul of each being.
