In Tibet, Khyung (ཁྱུང) is the Tibetan name for Garuda. Coming from India, he was assimilated to the khading of the Bön religion, the golden-horned eagle. The black garuda is a deity of the Nyingmapa school of Tibetan Buddhism that is held to suppress the affections caused by the naga and spirits of the earth. It is depicted on the Lungta. It is represented in the iconography of Shambhala by Chogyam Trungpa for whom it is associated with great speed and power.
