The swan is a beautiful creature, gliding gracefully with poised and dedicate motions across the clear waters of a lotus-filled pond. As if to enhance the swan’s beauty, nature has given her a wonderful ability, for from a mixture of milk and water, the swan can skillfully drink only the milk, without taking any water. Similarly, the most elevated transcendentalists are called paramahamsa, or swanlike men, because of their ability to imbibe only the most sweet and essential nectar of spiritual knowledge from the midst of the water of the material world. Now, for swanlike men, there is an unlimited reservoir of spiritual pleasure in the Vedic translations, commentaries and summary studies of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Clear, fresh and nectarean, these books of spiritual knowledge contain the true essence of life for which all swanlike men are researching.
