Garuda

I am Garuda, a vahana of Lord Vishnu A crown on my head show you my divine As I soaring high in the air Vedas chanted out of my red wings I am Garuda, son of Kasyapa and Vinata An embodiment of wisdom, one form with many epithets Mortals knew me as Chirada, Gaganeshvara, Kamayusha They also named me Kashyapi, Khageshvara, or Vishnuratha I am Garuda, representations of sacred and holy My massive golden body can block out the sun And with my presence I made any creature hesitate Even the serpent, source of all sins, abide me I am Garuda, the face of wisdom and courage I have fought alongside with Krishna, Satyabhama and Hari My luminous white face and strong beak shrunken the evil For I am Garuda, the king of all birds. I am Garuda I live in the faith of believers.
