Saraswati is the Goddess of Knowledge, learning, music, poetry and all the creative arts. Saraswati is called the Mother of the Vedas and the repository of Brahma’s creative intelligence. She is also called Vak Devi, the goddess of speech. She was the inventor of written language (Sanskrit) and for this reason is also invoked for help in schoolwork and other written endeavors.
This sloka (mantra) of Saraswati can be recited daily to improve memory power and concentration in studies:
