The Circle of Brahma and Saraswati
The circle is the most spontaneous of natural shapes, taken by the horizon, by stars, planets and bubbles. It best represents the Hindu universe because Hindus see the world as being timeless, fetterless, boundless, cyclical and infinitive. This universe is the medium through which the divine presents itself; hence for Hindus every element of this universe can serve as a window to the divine.
For Hindus, Brahma is God who creates the world. The world he creates is known as Brahmanda. This world is no just the outer objective world governed by mathematical principles. It is also the inner subjective world of thoughts and feelings. According to Vedic scriptures, God dos not ‘create’ this world. He simply made all creatures aware of it. Awareness leads do discovery. Discovery is creation.
The world discovered by Brahma is embodied in the Goddess. She has always existed, even when no one observed her. For Brahma, the Goddess is Shatarupa, she who takes infinitive forms. Shatarupa is Saraswati, goddess of knowledge, for in her infinitive forms she reflects the answer to Brahma.
