El Cosmico Garuda Notebook
Our favorite linen bound notebook, etched with our favorite spirit animal, the Garuda bird, our guiding muse and totem.
Garuda is known in both Buddhist and Hindu traditions as the supreme golden sunbird and carrier of the gods. Out in this part of the world, it is common to see a powerful bird surfing the desert's thermal updrafts. The image of Garuda is used as an amulet to protect the bearer from snake attack and its poison, since the king of birds is an implacable enemy and "devourer of serpent". The mantra, should you need it, reads, “Om Tarakishya (Garuda), cast down my enemies, trample the diseases and venom that might invade me.”
