I know there are many deities, each dealing with various areas of life, each with various characteristics.

But is there one god or godness dedicated to work?

In particular, I know that Saraswati deals with the works of the arts, she assists artists such as writers for example, but is there a more general divinity for work?

  • It seems that Vishwakarma is also not a deity of work in general, he is quite specific. Commented Jun 21, 2023 at 16:54
  • This article from Wikipedia gives more information. Accordingly, he is also mentioned in Rigveda. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vishvakarma
