The third largest religion on earth
Hinduism is the third largest religion on earth and has its origin in India. Hindus treat all living things with great respect, even animals as small as insects. They assume that life and death is a cycle that repeats itself over and over again.
According to their belief, all living things have a soul, not just humans. Yes, even in plants they see the divine. While all animals are considered divine in Hinduism, there are some that are particularly important to Hindus. There are cow, monkey, snake, elephant, tiger, peacock and rat.
|Airavata||white elephant; Mount of Indra|
|Arusha||red horses of the sun god|
|Chakora||Bird; dwells on the moonbeams|
|Garuda||mighty eagle; Mount of Vishnu|
|Makara||divine mount; Mount of Ganga and Varuna|
|Mayura||holy bird from the feathers of Garuda|
|Nandi||Bull; faithful mount of Shiva|
|Sarama||Bitch of the gods; brings back stolen cows to Indra|
|Sharabha||Lion and bird at the same time|
Makara is the mount of the two river gods Ganga and Varuna. However, it is not a horse, but a hybrid being that carries its owner across the water. In illustrations, Makara often has the snout of a crocodile, the head of an elephant and the body of a fish. In astrology, Makara corresponds to Capricorn. Makara could be a name for a fish, a reptile or a horse.
Nandi is a bull and Shiva's mount. He is considered the patron god of all four-legged animals. His name means something like "the happy one".
Sarama is a bitch who brings back stolen cows from the god Indra. Sarama is a very nice, soft-sounding name that goes great with dogs that like to fetch. For example, bring back sticks, balls or frisbees.

Garuda is half human, half eagle. Its head is human, its body is that of an eagle. He is Vishnu's mount and a kind of messenger of the gods who brings people messages from the gods. The name goes perfectly with a bird that chirps or maybe even talks a lot.
Sharabha has the body of a lion and the head and wings of a bird. Because it has eight legs, it can jump over large valleys in one go. Wouldn't that be a good name for a cat jumping from bookshelf to bookshelf?

Airavata is a huge, completely white elephant and the mount of the Hindu deity Indra. But that alone is not what is unusual about him. It also has four tusks and seven proboscis. Maybe you have a pet that literally sticks its nose into everything like it has seven of them. Or a rodent that “examines” everything with its teeth?
Naga is a snake creature represented as a snake (usually a king cobra) or a human with a snake's head. Nagas have the magical ability to transform themselves into people. However, those who treat their environment with respect need not fear the Nagas.
