ANSWER: The word Paramahamsa applies to a person who has experienced God and knows the difference between what is “real” and what is not “real.” According to the Vedantic/Hindu tradition, God alone is real. Literally, the word Paramahamsa means “the Supreme Swan.” Such a mythological swan can drink the cream part of milk, separating it from the whey. Similarly, a Paramahamsa experiences Divinity, which is the essence of this world, rejecting the non-real, sensual world.
