Saraswati puja

Sunday it was Saraswati's day and we were invited to Leya's school to celebrate.
Saraswati is the Goddess of learning, if I simplify it. (Few things about Hinduism is simple).
Read more about Saraswati here.
The staff at the school had made this beautiful decoration for the puja altar.
If you don't have any ties to Asia or Hinduism/Buddhism you might react on the swastika painted on the wall, but in this culture you see it everywhere since it's an important symbol for good luck and prosperity.

We gave Saraswati some bananas and oranges.
