Tiruchanur: On the second day evening, the celestial beauty Goddess Padmavathi Devi unfurled her charisma on the spectacular Hamsa Vahanam, giving a soothing feel to Her beloved devotees.
HAMSA IS THE SYMBOL OF MOKSHA:
The Hamsa, or the swan, is often identified with the Supreme Spirit and Ultimate Reality of Human life. In Hindu religious scriptures, the flight of the hamsa symbolizes “Moksha”. Being the most revered carrier of Saraswathi Devi-the goddess of knowledge and creative arts, Hamsa has the capacity to differentiate milk from water which is nothing but eliminating Good from Bad.
In Sanskrit it is said “Atmanatma Vivekam” and hence the Hamsa is considered as Parabrahma Swarupa and the saintly persons who attain this supreme wisdom through yoga are called Parama Hamsa. Having attained such a peak place in Hindu religion, the Swan vehicle takes the might of being the carrier of Goddess Padmavathi-the Goddess Wealth not only terms of prosperity but wisdom, on second day evening.
