Garuda is also known as “he who has beautiful feathers” (Suparna), as “golden bodied” (Suvarnakaya) and “the devourer”(Nagantaka). The latter name is connected to his role as the enemy of all snakes which are symbolic of death and the underworld.
Garuda is said to have been the first to teach humankind how to cure snake poison; moreover, worship of or meditation upon Garuda is said to remove snakes from one’s path. In contrast, Garuda represents birth and heaven; in addition, he is associated with the sun and fire.
According to the Mahabharata, Garuda fathered six sons from whom were descended the race of birds. The members of this race were of great might and without compassion, subsisting on the nagas. Fittingly, Vishnu was their protector. Garuda is also the Hindu name for the constellation Aquila. The brahmin kite and Phoenix are considered to be the contemporary representations of Garuda. – chakana.me/
