Garuda, fabulous bird man of Hindu and then Buddhist mythology, son of Kashyapa and Vinatâ and brother of Aruna, the driver of the chariot of the god Sureya. It is the vâhana, or mount, of the god Vishnu. He is also considered the king of birds.
In Tibet, Khyung (ཁྱུང) is the Tibetan name of the Garuda. Coming from India, it 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. He's featured on the Lungta. It is depicted in the iconography of Shambhala by Chogyam Trungpa for whom it is associated with a significant speed and power. Like the Phoenix, it emerges from the ashes of destruction, it is indestructible.
