I salute goddess Sarasvati, who bestows boons and is venerated by Vishnu, Siva and Guruguha. She is the consort of Brahma.
Her form is meditated upon by the eminent sages who have overcome the three kinds of afflictions. She is renowned for bestowing unlimited boons on Gods such as Indra. Her lotus face is wreathed in a smile, and her lotus feet are marvelous. She removes the fear of Samsara, and is of the form of all mystic syllables and mantras.
