Sri Garuda NamavaliSri Garuda Namavali


Garuda   is a powerful bird. He is the vehicle   of Lord Vishnu, and contains all the good features, and serves Lord Vishnu in a pleasing manner in Vaikunta. He always stood in front of Lord Vishnu with bowed hands. He always chants the glory of Lord Vishnu, and wilfully carries Lord Vishnu in his shoulders. His parents are Kashyapa and Vinata. His brother is Aruna, a charioteer of Lord Surya, and his wife name is Unnati.

Garuda is the king of birds and an ardent devotee of Lord Vishnu. He freed his mother from the clutches of his step mother Kadru by bringing the divine drink (Amirtha) from heaven.

Garuda is also worshipped in Buddhism.  In Vishnu temples, he is given a prominent place of worship. There is one famous temple dedicated for Lord Garuda which is situated in Mulbagal, Karnataka state.


He is mentioned in Hindu epics such as Mahabharatha, Bhagavatha purana and in Ramayana.

In Ramayana, he has helped Lord Rama from the cluthes of Nagastra. As soon as he arrived near Lord Rama, Lord Rama was freed from Nagastra, and then Lord Garuda worshipped Lord Rama, circumambulated him for three times, and went back to Vaikunta.

He helped Lord Krishna towards fighting with the Demon king, Narakasura. It is regarded that he is the enemy of the serpents. But he does not cause harm to anyone who are the devotees of Lord Vishnu, and who sincerely worships Lord Vishnu. He is regarded as a divine attendant of Lord Vishnu in Vaikunta.
