Essay on Eagle in Sanskrit

गरुडः।

गरुडः एकः बलवान् खगः अस्ति। सः विष्णोः वाहनम् अस्ति।

गरुडः एकः विशालः खगः। तस्य द्वौ महतौ पक्षौ स्तः। तस्य चञ्चुः अपि सुन्दरी अस्ति। सः एकः तेजस्वी पक्षी अस्ति।

गरुडः सर्वेषु खगेषु श्रेष्ठतमः। अतः सः खगानां राजा इति मन्यते। अतः ‘खगेश्वरः’ इति तस्य एकम् अन्यं नाम​।

गरुडस्य पिता कश्यप​-ऋषिः माता च विनता। पौराणिककथासु गरुडस्य नागानां च शत्रुतायाः विषये कथाः दत्ताः। गरुडः विनता च नागमातुः कद्रोः दासौ। यदा कद्रुः गरुडम् अमृतरसम् आनेतुम् आज्ञापयत्, तदा गरुडस्य श्रीविष्णोः च मेलनम् अभवत्।

गरुडः नागानां शत्रुः। सः सर्पान् भक्षयति। अतः ‘नागनाशकः’, ‘नागान्तकः’ तथा च ‘अहिरिपुः’ इति तस्य कानिचन नामानि।

गरुडः भारते देवतुल्यः। सः मुख्यः देवः नास्ति, तर्हि अपि सर्वेषां मनस्सु तस्य विषये आदरभावः वर्तते। गरुडगायत्रीमन्त्रः अपि अस्ति। तेन नकरात्मकतायाः नाशः भवति। एषः सः पवित्रमन्त्रः –

ॐ तत्पुरूषाय विद्महे, सुवर्णपक्षाय धीमहि, तन्नो गरुड: प्रचोदयात्॥

गरुड पर निबंध

गरुड एक विशाल पक्षी है। उसके दो बड़े पंख हैं। उसकी चोंच भी बहुत खूबसूरत है। वह बहुत ही प्रतापी पक्षी है।
गरुड सबसे बड़ा पक्षी है। इसलिए उसे सभी पक्षियों का राजा भी कहा जाता है। ‘खगेश्वर’ उसका दूसरा नाम है।

गरुड के पिता कश्यप ऋषि हैं और उसकी माता विनता हैं। प्राचीन कथाओं में गरुड और सांपों के बीच शत्रुता के किस्से दिए गए हैं। गरुड और विनता नागों की माता कद्रू के दास थे। गरुड और श्रीविष्णु पहली बार मिले जब कद्रू ने गरुड को अमरता का अमृत अमृत लाने का आदेश दिया था।

गरुड सभी सांपों का दुश्मन है। वह कभी-कभी उन्हें खाता है। इसलिए ‘नागनशक’, ‘नागंतका’ और ‘अहिरिपु’ उसके कुछ अन्य नाम हैं।

भारत में गरुड को देवता के समान माना जाता है। वह एक प्रमुख देवता नहीं हैं, गरुड सभी भारतीयों के मन में सम्मान रखते हैं। गरुड का गायत्री मंत्र भी है। ऐसा कहा जाता है कि यह सभी नकारात्मकता को नष्ट कर देता है। वह पवित्र मंत्र निम्नलिखित है-

हम गरुड, महान आत्मा, सर्वोच्च होने की अभिव्यक्ति का ध्यान करते हैं। सुनहरे पंखों वाला मुझे स्पष्टता दे। हे गरुड, कृपया मुझे ज्ञान की ओर मार्गदर्शन करें।
