For as long as humans have been on earth, we have respected, deified, and worshipped animals. We celebrate their sacred powers and meaning, in rituals and festivities that continue to this day. Travel with us around the globe as we explore and explain our spiritual connection with ox and eagle. In India, for example, it is believed that more than 330 million gods and goddesses dwell within each cow. For early Christian saints, Adam and Eve did not age, but were transformed into a pair of eagles that will live forever.
