The Legend

Garuda is the mythological king of the birds. He preserves the way of living in accord with cosmic laws and personal moral purification. With magical powers, he can swiftly go and enter anywhere, and Garuda can shapeshift into any form. He can even stop the spinning of heaven, earth, and hell. As the personification of courage, Garuda destroys evil and in his various avatars, he defends the path of rightness.

Every human deserves to have their OWN Garuda bird as a way to inner peace and harmonious being. The myGaru team is more than happy to convey Garuda, in his new digital embodiment, to each individual user.

Public Board

myGaru's philosophy is to minimize executional and operational risks which digress from the defined mission and goals. myGaru integrates an independent public board within the company's corporate structure. It is constituted of NGOs, brands, journalists, and public figures with proven track records in data privacy and human rights.

The mandate of the board is to monitor myGaru's internal processes and make independent public reports.
