May purifying Saraswati with all the plenitude of
her forms of plenty, rich in substance by
the thought, desire our sacrifice.
She, the impeller to happy truths, the awakener
in consciousness to right mentalisings,
Saraswati, upholds the sacrifice.
Saraswati by the perception awakens in consciousness
the great flood (the vast movement of the Ritam)
and illumines entirely all the thoughts.
— Rig Veda 1.3.10-12
