The fully grown Garuda—the legendary eagle-like creature—was powerful and mighty. The King of Birds inspired awe and respect everywhere he went. His loyalty and bravery won the hearts of even Vishnu and Indra; and his campaign to free his mother from her slavery won him the enmity of the Nagas. Listen to the story of how:

- Garuda became Vishnu's vehicle mount;

- Stole the amrita; and

- Came to be known as the enemy of the snakes.
