The Mahabharata contains many stories meant to help us understand social, moral and spiritual truths. One such story is that of Garuda. The story of Garuda has many lessons to learn. It is the story of how a family comes together. It is the story of a mother’s love for her Children. It is also the story about the extent a son goes to save his mother. More important than all of this, it is a story of how we should not give away to hasty behaviours and out ourselves in troublesome predicaments. Children have a lot to learn from reading this story of Garuda. Manu daily duties and divine deeds of Garuda inspire Children to tread the path of Dharma.
