内容 研究概要:Sarasvati is the most important river goddess in the Rig Veda, the oldest writings in the ancient India on hymns and legends composed during 1500〜1000 BC. 'Saras' indicates water, 'vat' means rich in something (stream), and 'i' is a suffix for female nouns. The Sarasvati River was the most sacred river and goddess during the Harappan period (Indus Civilization) in the Punjab plain. Punjab means five waters (rivers) in Persian.
