Mahalakshmi Devi first appeared at the time of the creation of the universe. He invoked Lord Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma. When these three gods appeared, then Goddess Mahalakshmi requested the three gods to manifest the goddesses according to their qualities. Lord Shiva invoked Mahakali from Tamogun, Lord Vishnu invoked Goddess Lakshmi from Rajoguna, and Goddess Saraswati from Satoguna. When these three goddesses appeared, then the goddesses whom the gods had invoked were presented to those goddesses by Mahalakshmi to conduct the creation. After this, Mahalakshmi herself got absorbed in the form of Mother Lakshmi. After completing the creation of the universe, when Brahma Ji saw the creation he had created, he looked calm as a dead body, because there was neither any voice nor speech in it. Brahmaji did not like seeing his indifferent creation. Brahmaji went to Lord Vishnu and told about his indifferent creation. Then Lord Vishnu told Brahmaji that Goddess Saraswati can solve your problem. You invoke them. With the sound of his veena, the sound will start flowing in your creation. According to the words of Lord Vishnu, Brahmaji invoked Saraswati Devi. When Saraswati Mata appeared, Brahma requested her to fill the voice with his Veena. As soon as Mother Saraswati touched the strings of the veena, the word ‘Sa’ suddenly broke out. This word is the first note in the seven notes of music. With this sound, the sound started flowing in the silent creation of Brahma. Winds, oceans, animals and birds, and other creatures got the voice. Yesterday’s sound started erupting from the rivers. This pleased Brahma. He addressed Saraswati as the ‘Goddess of Speech’ and named it ‘Vageshwari’, also a name of Mother Saraswati. She is also called ‘Veena Pani’ because of having a veena in the hands of Saraswati Mata.
