Goddess Saraswati (Sanskrit: सरस्वती, Sarasvatī) is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, arts, wisdom and learning. She is a part of the trinity of Saraswati, Lakshmi and Parvati. All the three forms help the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva to create, maintain and regenerate-recycle the Universe respectively.
The earliest known mention of Saraswati as a goddess is in Rigveda. She has remained significant as a goddess from the Vedic period through modern times of Hindu traditions. Some Hindus celebrate the festival of Vasant Panchami (the fifth day of spring) in her honour, and mark the day by helping young children learn how to write alphabets on that day. The Goddess is also revered by believers of the Jain religion of west and central India, as well as some Buddhist sects.
Saraswati who is revered as a goddess of knowledge, music and arts is also found outside Nepal and India, such as in Japan, Vietnam, Bali (Indonesia) and Myanmar.
- Saraswati Vandana Mantra (English Translation)
She, who is as fair as The Kunda flower,
white as the moon, and a garland of white snow;
and who is covered in white clothes
She, whose hands are adorned by the excellent veena,
and whose seat is the pure white lotus;
She, who is praised by Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh;
and prayed to by Devas

More about Hindu Rosary:
The ideal Hindu rosary has fifty beads, which corresponds with the number of characters in the Sanskrit alphabet, starting with a and ending with ksha. These two letters, combined with mala, form the word akshamala, which means "rosary." In Sanskrit, aksha also means grain, seed, or nut—of which many rosaries are made—and mala means a string of beads, garland, or necklace. Reciting or repeating the rosary is called in Hindi mala japna (S: japa, the mental or oral repetition of a prayer [mantra] accompanied by meditation); and consequently a rosary is also called a japamala.
In actuality, the total number of rosary beads may vary among different Hindu sects. For instance, Shaivites often use 32, or double that—64. A common Vaishnavite rosary has 108 beads. There are many other variants.
The Hindu rosary is used as an aid to meditation, to keep the mind from wandering in order to make it concentrate, without distractions, on the meaning of the prayer being recited. Recitation is usually murmured, or silent. Normally when saying the rosary, a Hindu will repeat the name of his or her self-selected deity (ishtadevata). It also may be the mantra that was whispered to a boy by his guru on the day he was initiated into his caste and invested with the sacred thread; thereafter, it is forever kept a secret. The receiver is regarded as the disciple of that guru, who is more revered than a Brahman priest. The guru guides him in all religious and spiritual matters for the rest of his life. The phrase, name, or sound (the latter termed a seed [bija] syllable), is repeated 108 times daily, keeping count with the rosary.
