Topped with a pictogram of a swan, the Sanskrit word Hamsa is rendered in devanagari script. The swan is a symbol of enlightenment and discernment. It is associated with the Beloved Goddess, Saraswati, bestower of creativity, knowledge and language itself. Music, art, writing and even religious wisdom is obtained by devotion to her.
Hamsa is also a mantra, symbolic of life’s very breath, which connects each of us to the universe as we take the air outside us bring it in to become life within, and expel it to give life to the plants, return the favor in a Neverending cycle.
