[This is a beautiful song on goddess Lakshmi]
You hold the divine ("vara") veena in your soft ("mrudu") hands ("paani"). You are the queen ("raani") of the omniscient. Your eyes ("lochana") are like the lotus petals ("vanaruha"). Your curly ("suruchira") tresses ("veni") resemble the bees ("bambhara"). Devas ("Sura") worship ("nuta") your auspicious form ("kalyaani"). You have ("lola") unequaled ("nir-upama") virtuous ("shuba") qualities ("guna"). You ("sheela") give ("prada") endless ("narathi") victory ("jaya"). You are Ranganaayaki, the consort ("priya")of the Ranganatha ("varadaa"). You grant ("daayaki") the boons ("phala") desired ("vaanchita") by your devotees. O Mother ("janani") of Brahma, who is seated on a lotus ("saraseeja-asana")! Victory ("jaya") to you.

    This is not a song in praise of Goddess Saraswati. This song has been composed in praise of Goddess Lakshmi

    You are wrong. Saraswati holds the Veena. She is known as Veenaapaani or Veenaadhari.
