Goddess Saraswati along with Ma Parvati and Ma Lakshmi form the 'tridevi' as the consorts of the trinity of Hindu gods. The four armed goddess holds the holy scriptures in one hand, has a lotus in the other and with her other two hands plays the veena, a musical instrument. In religious texts and Hindu scriptures the goddess is depicted in a pure white attire and is often seated on a white lotus but actually her mount is the swan.
