Garuda is also called as Garutman (गरुत्मन्) which means the stratosphere which surrounds the earth: When the Lord is identified as Sūrya Nārāyaṇa, then Garuda becomes the stratosphere which conveys and modifies the rays of the sun to the earth and thus prevents the destruction of life by the intensity of the heat.
