Lord Brahma created man on the command of Lord Vishnu but he was not satisfied with his own creation so he sprinkled the earth with his kamandal causing the earth to vibrate and for the first time in history, a mystic woman with divine powers came into existence. This was due to the fact that the earlier men have no voice or whatever. The woman was carrying veena in one hand while the other hand was in Vara Mudra. There were books and garlands in the other two hands. When this goddess played the veena in the sweetest voice, all the creatures of the world got a voice, then she was proclaimed with the name, Goddess Saraswati.
