Discusses the definitions given on the term Garuda in various dictionaries and its descriptions in literary Malay works based mainly on the Ramayana and Mahabharata stories. The Garuda is usually portrayed as powerful and destructive in Malay legends. This differs from the Garuda in Hindu mythology-based stories in which the bird is regarded as virtuous, subservient and devoted to his masters. Sources imply that the Garuda is a symbol of strength, swiftness and valour. Yet it is relentlessly loyal and humble, a champion of good against greed, injustice and evil.
