God of Education - Lord HAYAGREEVA

In Hinduism, Hayagrīva is also considered an Avatar of Lord Vishnu. He is worshiped as the God of knowledge and wisdom, with a human body and a horse's head, brilliant white in colour, with white garments and seated on a white lotus. Symbolically, the story represents the triumph of pure knowledge, guided by the hand of God, over the demonic forces of passion and darkness.

Hayagrīva is a very important deity in the vaishnava tradition. His blessings are sought when beginning study of both sacred and secular subjects. Special worship is conducted on the day of the full moon in August (Śravaṇa-Paurṇamī) (his avatāra-dina) and on Mahanavami, the ninth day of the festival. He is also hailed as "Hayashirasa". Hayaśirṣa means haya=Horse, śhiraṣa=Head.

ādhāraṃ sarvavidyānaṃ hayagrīvaṃ upāsmahe

आधारं सर्वविद्यानं हयग्रीवं उपास्महे
This verse is originally from the Pańcarātra Agamas but is now popularly prefixed to the Hayagrīva Stotra.
