Thai Buddha Sculpture Phra Garuda Phaya Krut Magic Bird Buddhism Talisman. Garuda is the mythical king of birds in the Hindu and Buddhist traditions, half-man and half-bird. In Hinduism, the riding bird (wahana) of the god Vishnu. In Buddhism, Vajrayana Garuda is idam, one of the symbols of the enlightened mind.
The history of the origin of Garuda and the myths about it are set forth in the Mahabharata, Skanda Purana and Srimad Bhagavatam. Garuda is dedicated to a number of texts, in particular, the Garuda Upanishad and the Garuda Purana. As in Hinduism, the Buddhist nga generally has the form of a great cobra, usually with a single head but sometimes with many. At least some of the ngas are capable of using magic powers to transform themselves into a human semblance. The nga is sometimes portrayed as a human being with a snake or dragon extending over his head.
