Today an eagle touched my head while I was in my open terrace. For last few days it was flying very near to me.
In various chapters of Mahabharata, there are instances of signs provided by animals. Incidentally in internet, I also saw various discussions of Eagle touching heads. Usually we may think that [probably old] eagle might be considering us a source of food, until coming near.
Is there any extra significance of Eagle touching head?
(e.g. good/bad omen, pitru vidhi is due, ...)
Opinions on this bird differ across the world. In the west, it's seen as a sign of enemity, but in the east, thanks to the Garuda connection, sighting one in the sky is considered a sign of hope...I remember my grandmother always keeping her eyes peeled to spot one in the distant sky... [source]
