Hindu mythology has always been one of the most fascinating subjects to talk about. And, when it comes to the marriages of Hindu gods and goddesses, one cannot stop scratching their heads with all the possible complications. Now, we are going to tell you the story of the marriage of goddess Saraswati to Lord Brahma, which took people by shock. All the information is taken from Saraswati Purana where the story is carefully explained. The epic read that Brahma created his beautiful daughter Saraswati direct from his vital strength or seminal fluid. Some texts also prove that Brahma used to collect his semen in a pot fixing his eyes on the celestial beauty Urvasi. Brahma’s semen in the pot gave birth to Saraswati. Thus, Saraswati had no mother.

This daughter of Brahma is the Hindu goddess of learning. When Brahma saw the beauty of Saraswati he became amorous. To escape from her father’s passionate approach Saraswati ran to the lands in all four directions, but she could not escape from her father. She finally succumbed to Brahma’s wish.

Brahma and his daughter Saraswati lived as husband and wife indulging in incest for 100 years. They had a son Swayambhumaru. Swayambhumaru made love with his sister Satarpa. Through the incest of Brahma’s son and daughter, Brahma got two grandsons and two grand-daughters.


However, As per Matsy Purana, there was a time when Lord Brahma was only alone when the cosmos did not exist. He longed for company. Accordingly he decided to split himself in to two parts, creating a feminine counterpart. As mythology mentioned her in the name of Sandhya, Brahmi or Saraswati who emerged from Brahma’s mouth.

Brahma was attracted and fell in love with her. His longing for her increased and he started looking at her constantly. To avoid his gaze, Saraswati started moving from one side to another even flied on top but Brahma started looking towards her without turning his head, but creating heads all around, a total of five heads. Brahma finally requested her to help him to create the Universe.


Saraswati as his wife helped Brahma to execute his plan accordingly and created the demigod Manu, who ultimately created the world. She is the mother of our language, Sanskrit as well as mother of the Vedas, texts of Hinduism. Prajapati (Brahma) desired his daughter (SARASWATI) and made love to her. This was a sin in the eyes of the gods, who said to the god who rules over beasts [Pasupati, Rudra], ‘He commits a sin, acting in this way towards his own daughter, our sister. Pierce him.’

Rudra took aim and pierced him. Half his seed fell to the ground. The gods cured Prajapati and cut out Rudra’s dart, for Prajapati is the sacrifice. To utilize [the seed], the gods said, ‘Take care that this may not be lost, but that it may be less than the oblation.’ They gave it to Bhaga to eat, but it burnt his eyes and he became blind.

Then they gave it to Pusan to eat, but it knocked out his teeth. At last they gave it to Savitr [the sun] and it did not injure him, for he appeased it. Saraswati is known and worshiped as goddess of knowledge. She is the creator of all creative arts, poetry, music and science. Saraswati appeared as a divine river, water deity, as mentioned in Rigveda.

Thus she is known as goddess of fertility and purification. Word Saraswati means, one which flows, not only water of river, flow of knowledge is also indicative.
