The eagle, is a lesser Hindu god, the mount of Vishnu, one of the main forms of God in Hinduism. He wears a crown on his head like his master, Vishnu. He is ancient and huge, and can block out the sun.
Garuda came to life shining like fire, his glaring light filling the firmament in all directions. The amazed gods thought that doomsday was coming and that at last, the time had come for the burning of the three worlds. But Agni, the god of fire, knew the truth, and he harangued the other gods with these words: "O you gods, don't you be frightened. The time has not come for my burning of the world. Doomsday is still far away. What light is it you see? It is Garuda's light. Powerful among the birds.
