Mata Damayanti used to convey her love messages to Nala through the help of a swan bird. Swans are mentioned in ancient texts, and they are considered as very pure.
Swans would separate water and milk, and drink milk only, similar to that, we also have to differentiate between bad and good things, and ignore the bad things, and must do only good things in our life. Swans would walk very slowly and would eat small insects, fish and crabs. They are not supposed to be killed, since killing of swans would cause angry to Lord Brahma Dev and Mata Saraswati, and they would curse us.
Swans would live in lakes and ponds, and contains a pleasing appearance. They would never give troubles to us, and in fact, makes our mind to get relaxed through their beautiful appearance.
