The presence of the eagle during the ceremony has been seen as a symbol of divine blessings and the presence of Lord Rama. According to Hindu mythology, the eagle is considered to be the vehicle of Lord Vishnu, of whom Lord Rama is considered to be an incarnation.

The sight of the eagle has added a mystical touch to the proceedings and created a sense of awe and wonder among the devotees present at the ceremony. Many believe that this is a sign of good fortune and a positive omen for the future of the temple as the atmosphere was filled with a feeling of devotion and spirituality.

Garuda’s connection in Ramayana

Garuda, the divine vehicle of Lord Vishnu, is known for his enmity with snakes. He is considered the king of birds and is known for his loyalty and devotion to Lord Vishnu. In the epic battle between Lord Rama and Ravana, Ravana’s brother Meghnad used a powerful weapon called ‘Nagastra’ to capture Lord Rama and his brother Lakshmana. Nagastra held the brothers tightly, making it impossible for them to escape from his deadly grip. However, as soon as Garuda approached them, a miraculous transformation took place. Nagastra started loosening his grip and the brothers were freed from his clutches.

As Garuda came closer, he lovingly stroked his face with his wide wings. Immediately, their wounds disappeared, and the glow returned to their faces. Not only were his physical injuries healed, but his splendor, majesty, intelligence and courage also increased manifold.

It was as if Garuda’s touch infused them with divine energy and rejuvenated their souls. Garuda, with his magnificent wings and majestic appearance, symbolizes protection, power and divine intervention. In Hindu mythology, Garuda is often depicted as a half-man, half-eagle creature with golden wings and a beak-like nose. He is believed to possess immense power and is considered the embodiment of righteousness and righteousness.
