Jayapataka Swami: Brahma’s wife is Savitri and not Saraswati. His second wife is Gayatri. The river Saraswati is a spiritual river which has gone beneath the earth. In Prayag, Triveni, there is Ganga Jamuna and Saraswati. Saraswati is Laksmi in the spiritual world, but she is also giving the blessing of mundane knowledge in the material world. So the material Saraswati is giving mundane knowledge and the spiritual Saraswati is giving spiritual knowledge.
