In Hindu mythology, the White Swan is a symbol of Excellence as the Vahana (vehicle) of goddess Saraswati. Saraswati is the goddess of knowledge, learning and art. The white coloured Hamsa or Swan lives in the Manasarovar Lake near the Kailash Mountain. Hansa is considered to be the symbol of the soul and displays the ability to discriminate the real from the unreal, truth from untruth and milk from water. It also symbolizes Pran or the life-force whose movement into and out of the body generates life.
