Gleaming with pride and washing with white stardust, standing tall with all her might and magnificence, glossed with beak of golden coat, her beauty reflected upon waters painted in cerulean and indigo, she swims with pride among faded cherries and autumn leaves. She is the perfect Vahana to the divine goddess Saraswathi, a true symbol of mysticism, art, purity and knowledge. Hamsa has a remarkable quality to separate milk and water, metaphorically being able to identify the good and evil in everything. With tinges of love, purity and grace sitting on her beak, she stands with grandeur under her feet. Hamsa, a bird of many mythological abilities with a divine mind & lives on honey from the blooming lotus of knowledge and feasts on white pearls!
