    Garuda, eagle, is the Vahana or Vehicle of Lord Vishnu.
    Puranas narrate in detail on how Garuda became the Vahana of Lord Vishnu but what is more interesting is the hidden symbolism.
    It is said that a man who does not deviate from the path of Dharma develops the two wings of devotion and knowledge and the tail that propels him forward is the Karma Yoga.
    Such an individual rises like an eagle with Lord Vishnu always on top and the Lord helps him in navigating through the tough terrains of earthly existence before merging with the Supreme Soul.
