Goddess Saraswati is considered the Goddess of Knowledge, wisdom, peace, patience, and faith. And, these things are the most important factors that define human life, because a human without Knowledge is an animal. It is essential to inculcate good and positive knowledge about anything from the very beginning. If you have Knowledge and Wisdom, you will surely make the right decisions; you can identify the good from the bad.
Patience and faith will lead you to greater heights, and you will never fail if you work hard and have faith in yourself. And who does not want peace in their lives, it is the sole reason for happiness. Everything we do eventually has a goal of peace. And to get all these things in life apart from you. Good Karma, you should also pray to Goddess Saraswati for her blessing. Here are some of the mantras which we also call Vandanas, for Goddess Saraswati you should practice:
