Birth and Marriage
When Brahma was creating the universe, he started meditating on sattva guna. Brahma began swelling up in his mind and because of this, a girl was born. Brahma asked her who she is.
“I am born of you. Please assign me my duties in this universe,” the girl said.
“You will be called Saraswati,” Brahma responded. “You will stay on the tip of everybody’s tongue as knowledge and music. Your second form will be that of a river. Your third form will be with me as my wife.”
Saraswati agreed to this.
