Matangi the Tantric form of Goddess Saraswati is associated with knowledge, wisdom, and creativity. She represents the divine self that remains after everything dies.

In addition, Matangi embodies the power of the spoken word as an expression of thoughts and the mind, as well as the power of listening and grasping speech to convert it back to wisdom and thought.

According to a hymn in the Maha-Bhagavata Purana, her grace can help control one's foes. The Tantrasara says that reciting her mantra, meditating on her form/yantra, and performing her ritual worship give one the power to control people and make them attracted to oneself.

The Purashcharyarnava says that pleasing the goddess allows her to answer all your questions by whispering in your ear.
