Medha Suktam

Medha Suktam ( (IAST medhasūkta, Devanāgarī मेधा सूक्त) ) is a suktam (set of mantras contained in the Vedas) addressed to Medha
 (i.e., intelligence, wisdom, memory and power of discrimination), visualized as a goddess. Because goddess Medha is considered as a form of Saraswathi,
Medha Suktam is quite popular as a hymn to goddess Saraswathi; as a prayer seeking intelligence and capability to learn.
