Period 10 – Knowledge / Wisdom
Sloka
  • Saraswati is the Vakshakti i.e the urge to express the Harmony, beauty and Melody in creation through the medium of language, music, dance art or sculpture. She is the Vidyashakti i.e. the Power to illumine the outer and inner universe of man.

To attain a full life, man must master two field of knowledge of the manifested universe and knowledge of the consciousness that pervades and validates the universe. One gives him the right and authority to engage in profession to earn a living, and the other teaches the mode and manner of right living. One confers the skill and intelligence, wealth status and position; the other impels man to dedicate these to the progress of other. Thus, we see that Saraswati promotes the Satwic Guna in an individual. Saraswati confers on the educated man, the power of discrimination. She converts the thoughts and words into speech. Thus, the child develops a healthy respect for his studies for his school and his teachers. He also becomes aware of the necessity for cleanliness, neatness and tidiness.
