Paramahamsa by thrumyeye Paramahamsa by thrumyeye

The title may be translated as "supreme swan," and is based on the swan being equally at home on land or water. Similarly, the true sage is equally at home in the realms of matter and of spirit. The swan is also, according to Indian legend, able to separate milk from water. Thus, the swan symbolizes the ability of a Self-realized master to separate truth from the insubstantiality of delusion.

Somehow, I think they look better swimming than flying. But it's still pretty.
