As soon as the water particles fell on the earth, Swarsati Mata appeared in the form of a beautiful woman. She had a Veena in one hand and a book in the other. In the third hand there was a garland and in the fourth hand there was a varada mudra. Who was given the name Saraswati Devi (सरस्वती देवी) by Brahma ji.
