Jatayu- Saviour from the Skies
The powerful bird Jatayu- was older than the trees, the mountains and most things on the earth. He and his brother Sampati were the caretakers of the birdkind.
Jatayu was a great friend of King Dasrath, Lord Ram’s father. He also was the sole witness to the kidnapping of Princess Sita by Ravana and had fought him bravely but failed. He died and attained Moksha at the feet of Lord Rama.
