Garuda is a mythological creature in ancient Hindu manuscript. Its story is well known, especially among Balinese people. In the legend, Garuda is the son of Dewi Winata, one of the wives of Baghawan Kashyapa. The younger brother of Aruna hatched from egg given by Bhagawan Kashyapa to Dewi Winata.
However, at the time of his birth, Dewi Winata did not accompany the process since she was held captivated by Dewi Kadru. When Garuda was born, he questioned his mother’s whereabout. Driven by his curiosity, Garuda flew to the sky, then he met Lord Indra. After hearing the story from the God of war, he realized that his mother, Dewi Winata was locked up and enslaved by Dewi Kadru, the other wife of Bhagawan Kashyapa.
Apparently, the reason was because Dewi Kadru tricked Dewi Winata when they were betting, and made his mother lost her freedom. The consequence forced Dewi Winata became a servant of 1,000 snakes, sons of Dewi Kadru. To free his mother from that place, Garuda made a pact with Lord Vishnu. By Lord Vishnu’s advice, Garuda eventually can release his mother, after deceiving a thousand snakes to minimize their size. As a form of gratitude, Garuda becomes the vehicle of Lord Vishnu (Garuda Wisnu Kencana).
