Saraswati: Guardian Who Fights Drug

Also known as "Druga" in reference to her role as a guardian of the Earth, Saraswati fights off a Vedic female demon named Drug. Originating from the Sanskrit root "druh," to be hostile, Druga means "dru" (with difficulty) and "ga" (go). Thus, Saraswati assists those who battle the Drug in search of wisdom.

Saraswati is considered the consort of Brahma, the Vedic god of Creation. In fact, she is part of the feminine Vedic trinity of Saraswati, Lakshmi and Parvati. In the Devi Mahatya all three are called Saraswati and represent a triple goddess like the Magdalene (see link in comments). Together they assist the masculine trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva create, sustain and destroy the cosmos.

Saraswati is a water goddess of the river, which is why she rides a swan, dresses in white and depicted sitting on a white lotus. The white lotus represents purity and the expansion of the soul. Her name Saraswati literally means "flow" and "she who has flow," which references her ability to help one learn by becoming in-flow with nature. The use of water in baptismal ritual probably has its origin in Saraswati.

She plays a Vedic stringed instrument known as a "Veena." For this reason she is nicknamed Veenapani and considered the goddess of music. Since her Lakshmi personality is associated with Venus in Vedic astrology, Saraswati may well be an alias for the Brahmanical feminine aspect of Vena. If so, then she represents a spiritual connection between the Soma mushroom and the celestial music (orbital "womb" pattern) of the planet Venus.

Eat the mushroom Drug and you might meet the triple goddess Veenapani who will bestow her wisdom that the cosmos is made of music.
