In Hinduism, Garuda is an
Upadevata, a divine entity, and is depicted as the vahana or mount of Sri
Maha Vishnu. Garuda is usually portrayed as being a
strong man; having a golden, glowing body; with a white face, red wings, and an
eagle's beak. He is adorned with a crown on his head. This very ancient
deity is believed to have a gigantic form, large enough to block out the Surya
Devata or the Sun God.
Garuda is widely known to be a permanent and sworn enemy of the Nagas, the ones belonging to the serpent race - it is believed that Garuda fed only on snakes. This behavior bears reference to the short-toed Eagle, which can be found in India. The image of Garuda is often worn as a charm or amulet, as it is believed to protect the wearer from snake attacks and poison. In fact, Garuda Vidya is the mantra which is often used as a palliative measure to destroy the ill-effects of snake poison and also to remove all sorts of evil the victim has been afflicted with.
Garuda is generally shown as winding the mighty Adisesha serpent on his left wrist and the serpent Gulika on his right wrist. The great serpent Vasuki winds around him to form his sacred thread. Takshaka, the cobra, winds on his hip to serve as a belt. He wears the serpent Karkotaka as his necklace. Further, the snakes Padma and Mahapadma are his earrings. The serpent Shankachuda adorns his hair as a crown.
