The Indian Vulture. In the United States, the species of vulture we have here is called Cathares aura or "the golden purifier." Among the aboriginal or native American peoples, the vulture is a power animal, one that uses the energy of the earth to sail in the sky and to pull away from the forces of gravity. The vulture cleans the earth of carrion and death, and never kills to feed itself. ਜਿਥੈ ਡਿਠਾ ਮਿਰਤਕੋ ਇਲ ਬਹਿਠੀ ਆਇ ॥੨॥ jithhai ddithaa mirathako eil behithee aae ||2|| - wherever the vulture sees a dead body, he flies down and lands. ||2|| In many religious traditions, the vulture is not a symbol of something disgusting. Rather it symbolizes purification. To dream of a vulture is considered a positive omen. The vulture indicates that all that is rotten in the core of the self will be eaten away.
