Like an earthly mother tells the child born to her as to who is  its father ,Vedha Matha 
points to the Brahman as the cause of all causes.So from our loukika angle 
Brahman may be taken as Male Supreme.R.Krishnamoorthy.

shrutimAta is called vEda-garbhA, dhEnuH etc. 
The brAhmaNa who performs niyamapUrvaka swAdhyAya, the shruti in the form of chandas protects & nourishes him, like a mother.  The essence of mAtr tattva is protection and nourishment.  During swAdhyAya and tapas, the shruti nourishes 
the adheeta with saraH (in other words rasaH) and bestows chitta shuddhi.  
Such a mind which is endowed with chitta shuddhi is called *saraswAn* and his vAk is called *saraswati*.
