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 for Garuda. Coming from India, he was likened to the khading of the Bun 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's on the Lungta. He is represented in the iconography of Shambhala by Chogyam Trungpa for whom he is associated with significant speed and power. Like the phoenix, it rises from the ashes of destruction, it is indestructible.
