Japanese Hanging Scroll : TOSA MITSUNARI "Benzaiten" @n740
Description *Benzaiten (Saraswati):
Benzaiten is the Japanese name of the goddess Saraswati. There is also a mighty river in ancient India of this name (see Vedic Saraswati River). Benzaiten arrived in Japan during the 6th through 8th centuries, mainly via the Chinese translations of the Sutra of Golden Light, which has a section devoted to her. She is also mentioned in the Lotus Sutra.
She is the goddess of everything that flows: words (and knowledge, by extension), speech, eloquence, and music. The characters used initially to write her name, read "Biancaitian" in Chinese and "Bensaiten" in Japanese, reflected her role as the goddess of eloquence. Because the Sutra of Golden Light promised protection of the state, in Japan she became a protector-deity, at first of the state and then of people. Lastly, she became one of the Seven Gods of Fortune, and the Sino-Japanese characters used to write her name changed to Benzaiten, which reflects her role in bestowing monetary fortune. Sometimes she is called Benten, although this name refers to the goddess Lakshmi. Condition Signature & Seal = Mitsunari.
