Garuda Purana is in the form of instructions by Vishnu to his carrier, Garuda (The King of Birds - a vimana of Lord Vishnu). This Purana deals with astronomy, medicine, grammar, and gemstone structure and qualities.The Garuda Purana has nineteen thousand shlokas. It is a medium-sized Purana.The latter half of this Purana deals with life after death. The Hindus of north-India generally read this Purana while cremating the bodies of the dead. Garuda purana tells about different typs of hells and about what deeds should be done to avoid them.This has given great importance to the origin of Garuda. There are nineteen thousand verses describing the ways to the Lord. Garuda Purana explains the make up of the physical body as well as the subtle body with the six Chakras, and advises that we breathe 21600 times during 24 hours and that each inhaling and exhaling be made into an act of japa mala with such mantras as Soham, Hare Ram etc.
