Hinduism - What Is A Vina?

 




A multi-stringed musical instrument with a long hollow body and a sounding box at the bottom; the top has a huge hollow gourd jutting from the rear, which amplifies the sound even more.




  • The vina is a classical musical instrument used in southern India, where mastery of the instrument is still prized.
  • The goddess Saraswati is most firmly connected with the vina in Indian imagery, in line with her role as patron Goddess of the arts, culture, and learning.
