Matsya Avatar

Matsya, the first avatar of Vishnu, is in the form of a fish. Lord Vishnu took the form of Matsya to rescue Manu, the first man as per the Hindu epics from colossal destruction.

Vishnu Avatar - Matsya Avatar


History and mythology of Matsya avatar

Once king Satyavrata or Manu was performing a sacred ceremony beside a river. While scooping in some water from the river to offer to Surya, the Sun God, he accidentally caught a tiny fish in the palm of his hand. Satyavrata was ready to release the fish into the water, but the fish requested otherwise. The tiny fish begged him not to throw it back into the river as the river had bigger fishes that would prey upon it. To save itself from other predators of the sea, the fish requested the king to take it along with him to his palace, convincing him that his palace would be safe and big enough to accommodate a small fish. King Satyavrata took pity on the little fish and took it with him to his palace. Upon reaching there, he put the fish in a small bowl.

The king was happy and satisfied that he was able to save the life of this little being. The next morning Satyavrata came to check on the fish and was surprised to see that the tiny fish he had brought with him had grown large enough to fill the entire pot. Its size had become so large that its movement inside the pot became restricted. The fish requested the king to place it in the larger vessel, as it would not be able to survive in this pot for long. The king agreed and transferred it into the largest vessel he had, but the same night the fish had outgrown the size of this vessel too. The fish again requested the king to move it to a place big enough to ensure her survival.

Satyavrata immediately ordered his servants to carry the fish into a pond. For the moment it seemed like the fish would live there happily, but the next morning Satyavrata was shocked to see the fish outgrow the size of the pond. This time the king transferred the fish to the largest lake in his kingdom, but in no time the fish outgrew the lake too. The king had no other option but to drop the fish into the ocean from where he originally rescued it. He apologized to the fish that despite being a king he could not save her or provide enough to ensure her survival.

As the fish was dropped into the ocean, its size knew no bounds. It grew beyond what Satyavrata's eyes could see. At this point, Satyavrata concluded that this was no ordinary animal, but it had to be a divine appearance of a god. Styavrata bowed to the fish and apologized for thinking in his pride that he could save every living being on earth. He offered his prayers and requested the fish to reveal to him the ulterior motive behind this form. The Matsya took the form of Shri Vishnu and blessed Satyavrata. Matsya told the king that in seven days huge devastation in the form of a flood would engulf the earth, killing almost all of the creation.

Matsya ordered the king to call the seven sages and gather samples of herbs, seeds, and all forms of life to repopulate the earth after the destruction was over. Matsya promised Satyavrata that it would send a boat to save them and with its help, they would be able to survive to begin the new cycle of the yuga. The king, upon understanding the orders of Matsya, began working on gathering everything as told to him.

After seven days as Matsya had predicted, huge clouds appeared in all directions and began pouring on land and sea. The huge waves from the ocean flowed into the land, becoming one with it. Soon there was no land in sight and the entire area was flooded with water. Then Satyavrata with all his companions saw a large mysterious boat floating towards them across the waves. Remembering the words of Matsya, Satyavrata onboarded the seven Rishis, Animals, all his belongings, and himself in the boat, finding some safety.

Soon Matsya appeared there with the snake Vasuki. Vasuki tied itself to the boat on the side and held onto the horns of Matsya on the other side. Matsya with the help of Vasuki towed the boat across the waters of devastation. For countless days, darkness covered the world and they wandered across the stormy ocean waiting for the water to subside. During their journey and days of patience, Vishnu in the form of Matsya preached to king Satyavrata and the seven sages the spiritual knowledge of the Vedas.

Thus, Lord Vishnu the preserver from the holy trinity was able to save mankind and brought them into the new era, the beginning of Sat-Yuga. Satyavrata came to be known as 'Manu', the first man, and the seven sages who accompanied him became the SaptaRishis going on to repopulate the earth.

Kurma Avatar is considered to be the second incarnation of Lord Vishnu. There is no definitive answer to this question. Kurma, the mythical serpent-god, is often depicted with a hooded snake around his body. This hood can be interpreted in many ways, but one popular interpretation is that the hood represents the secrecy of the serpentine deity. Kurma is also often shown with a conch shell in his hand, which some belief is indicative of his role as the god of water. Click on Kurma Avatar of Lord Vishnu to read the full story.


Varaha Avatar

Varaha Avatar
Vishnu Avatar - Varaha Avatar

Hiranyaksha was the first and greatest demon that ever walked this earth. His body was so big and strong that it blocked the view in all directions just like a mountain. The crest of his crown seemed to kiss the sky and cover the sun. When he walked, the earth shook at every step. Even the demigods hid from him. Fearing death at the hands of no one, he wandered the earth searching for a suitable opponent to fight. He wore golden anklets, a golden girdle, golden bracelets on his arms, golden armor, and a crown of gold.

To obtain this gold he mined the earth. He considered the earth as his property to do with as he wished, and so he mined the earth deeper and deeper, so deep that the earth lost her inner balance and fell from her position in space. Plunging to the depths, the earth came to rest in the primeval waters which lie at the very bottom of the universe. There she (Earth) lay, lost and helpless in the darkness. Hiranyaksh had a boon from Lord Brahma that no beast, nor man, nor god could kill him.

Lord Vishnu saw the distress of the earth's planet as she was lying in the dark ocean. So, Vishnu took the form of a gigantic boar, Varaha, and entered the universe to rescue the earth from the deep. It is said that he first appeared in a tiny form no larger than a thumb, and steadily grew until he seemed to fill the heavens. Although a boar is normally considered to be an ugly animal, Varaha was most beautiful. All the demigods and sages have sung his glories as he dived into the ocean to rescue the earth.

Meanwhile, Hiranyaksha roamed about restlessly looking for someone with whom to do battle. As Varaha was picking up the earth on his tusks, the angry demon came upon him and eagerly challenged him to fight. He pushed the earth to the Patal-Lok, or under the sea. He stole the Vedas, the Holy Scriptures from the Lord Brahma, while he was asleep and performed huge atrocities. There was a great battle, fought for the sake of the earth, in which the demon finally lost his life. Varaha picked up the earth with his two tusks and carefully restored her to her proper position in space. He also retrieved the Vedas from the Asura and brought them back to the safe custody of Lord Brahma. According to Hindu mythology, Varaha Avatar is considered to be the third incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

Vishnu Avatar - Vamana Avatar

Despite being an asura king Bali was a pious man and was a devotee of Vishnu like his grandfather Prahalad. He had become so powerful that he had acquired all of PrithviLok the earth. During his process of empowering the asuras through his might and penance, Bali was ready to conquer the other two Lokas as well SwargaLoka (Heaven) and the PataalLok (Underworld).

Indra feared that the Devas were becoming incapable of defeating the asuras under the leadership of Bali. He feared if Bali conquered SwargaLoka, the Devas would be forced to leave their abode. Therefore, the Devas reached Vishnu for help. To save the Devas, Vishnu appeared in the most beautiful form of a Brahman dwarf named Vamana. Vamana was so enchanting that no one could resist his charm. So divine was his beauty that upon a glance woman would want to adopt him for a son.

Vamana avatar is considered to be the fifth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. One day the Brahmana Vamana reached the court of King Bali requesting charity or alms. It was a custom in the court of Bali that no Brahman would leave his place empty-handed. So the king was more than willing to offer the Brahmana anything he desired. Upon questioning his needs, Vamana said that he wanted land measuring up to three steps of his tiny feet. But Bali urged the Brahman that he was capable of giving him more and insisted that he asked enough that he would never have to do anything ever again. "If I were not satisfied with just three paces of land,'' Vamana responded, ''I would not be satisfied even with the whole universe." "If I got one island, I would want others." "It is better to be satisfied with whatever destiny brings for discontent can never bring happiness."

In this way, he hinted that Bali should not have set out to conquer the whole universe, because it would never bring him happiness. When sage Shukracharya, the Guru of Asuras heard these words from Vamana's mouth he knew at that moment that it was none other than Vishnu who had come to trick the king. He immediately warned his disciple King Bali not to give anything to the Brahmana as it was Lord Vishnu. He said that Vishnu will take away from him all that he owned and give it to the Devas. But Bali has given his word to the Brahmana that he would fulfill all his desires, and therefore could not go back on his word. He agreed on giving Vamana his three paces of land.

Shukracharya understanding Vishnu's motives, tried to manipulate the King for his welfare. He said as per the Shastras (Vedic system) a Gruhasth (Family man) could only donate five percent of what he owned for charity. But Bali, a devotee of Lord Vishnu did not even for a moment flinch about giving away everything for his lord. Bali asked Vamana to measure his three-foot-sized land and it would be given to him. Then Lord Vishnu in the form of Vamana began growing his size. He grew and grew until he filled the whole universe. Everything was within his form the earth, the seas, the bird, beasts and human beings, and the planets themselves.

Bali saw everything that existed in that wonderful form of the lord. His feet were the surface of the earth, his breath was the wind, his hair was the clouds and his eyes were the sun. He then lifted his foot to measure three steps. In one step, he measures the whole earth under his feet. In his second step, he covered the Swarg-Lok. Vamana in his gigantic form asked Bali that he had covered the earth and heaven in two strides. Now there was nothing left in the universe that could satisfy his demand for the third foot of land. But since Bali had promised him three feet of land, it was his duty to fulfill his promise, but Bali was defeated. But in all his humility he requested Vishnu to come back to his original form of Vamana, so he could fulfill his promise. Vishnu accepted his request and returned to his gentle form of a dwarf.

The King then asked Vamana to put his third step on his head, thus surrendering everything he had, even himself to Vishnu. Vishnu pleased by the devotion and sincerity of Bali gives back everything to Bali except for SwargLok, thus ensuring his devotee's prosperity and also the welfare of the Devas.


Parshuram Avatar

Lord Parashuram is considered to be the sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. In the Parshuram Avatar, born to a pious sage Jamadagni and Renuka, Vishnu incarnated himself as a Brahmin priest and is the only incarnation that is immortal. He is said to be one of the seven Chiranjeevis (Immortals) and will be alive on earth till the end of Kaliyuga.

Parshuram Avatar
Vishnu Avatar - Parshuram Avatar


Why did Parshuram hate Kshatriyas?

The world was once overburdened with kings and soldiers, also known as the Kshatriyas under the Hindu Varna system. This created a lot of fights and disturbances in the world. The rulers of society have to protect religious principles and the teachers of religion, the Brahmanas. When they fail to do this they become a burden on the earth. Parshuram chose the life of a warrior to fight and destroy the abuse of the Kshatriyas who were misusing their powers to hurt the innocent at the time.

Although he was born in a Brahman family, he called himself a Kshatriya-Brahman. He thought of himself as a weapon to fight against the Kshatriya kings. He eradicated the presence of many Kshatriya kingdoms on earth with nothing more than an axe as a weapon, which was presented to him by Shiva. Kshatriya, a powerful king, once went to Jamadagni's home when he was out, and after a meal, stole the kamadhenu cow, which was supposed to give the endless milk.

Jamadagni was enraged and he went and killed the king and brought Kamadhenu back. On hearing this, the son of the king came back and killed Jamadagni. Parshurama was enraged at this and went and avenged the death of his father by killing the king's son. It is said that he killed the Kshatriya race misusing their powers over twenty-one battles. The wealth and land that he owned upon winning the battles were donated to the Brahmanas and poor people. Parshuram then renounced fighting and went to the Himalayas to perform penances.


Why did Parshuram kill his mother?

Despite being an incarnation of Vishnu, Parshuram is often known as the one who killed his mother. While this is considered to be a huge sin as per the Hindu, the full story behind this incident is often not known. Parshuram's mother Renuka once set to the bank of Gangas to fetch some water. There she saw a handsome prince sporting in the water with some beautiful women. The man was Chitraratha, the king of the Gandharvas and the beautiful women surrounding him were the Apsaras from heaven. Renuka felt strongly attracted to the price and wished to be in his company. In his charming beauty, she lost all sense of time and overstayed there gazing at the prince. She had completely forgotten that her husband Jamadagni was waiting for her to begin his Yagya.

When she came back to her senses, she immediately rushed back to her ashram to serve her husband. Jamadagni being a powerful sage had already seen the mental state of his wife through his powers of meditation. He was very well aware of his wife's adulterous thoughts and became furious at her. Enraged, he ordered his sons to kill their mother, his first four sons were unsure about this order. In the Vedic culture, it is a sin to murder any woman, and killing one's mother was a crime that had no remorse. But it was also a crime to disobey one's elders, especially one's father who is the primary source of provider for all his children.

After much thought, the four sons of Jamadagni decided to disobey their father and not kill their mother. Jamadagni then asked his fifth and youngest son, Parshuram to kill his mother as well as his four-elder brother for disobeying him. Parshuram, knowing the power of his father, thought that if he refused to carry out his father's order he would be cursed, but if he fulfilled his order, his father would be pleased and would give him a boon or a blessing. Therefore, Parshuram with his axe killed his mother and all his brothers. Jamadagni, extremely pleased by the dutifulness of his son blesses him and offers him a boon of his choice. Parshuram requested his father to bring his mother and brothers back to life with no memory of them being killed by Parshuram. Jamadagni pleased by his son's pure intentions grants his wishes to come true. Renuka and her four sons come back to life as though from a deep sleep with no memory of what has happened.

Krishna Avatar

The eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu is often debated to be between Krishna and his elder brother Balarama, but because Balarama, is an incarnation of Adi Shesha the serpent of Vishnu. Krishna is collectively accepted as the eighth incarnation of Vishnu. Krishna, one of the most widely popular of all Indian divinities became the focus of numerous bhakti cults, which have over the centuries produced a wealth of religious poetry, music, and painting. The basic sources of Krishna's stories from the epic Mahabharata and Bhagvat Purana.

Vishnu Avatar - Krishna Avatar


A fact behind Krishna avatar

There came a time when the earth was unable to bear the sins and cruelty committed by evil kings and rulers. Earth then prayed to Lord Brahma, the creator of the universe to relieve her from these sinful kings. Brahma prayed to the supreme Lord Vishnu for his reincarnation and to relieve the earth from these evil rulers. Kansa, the ruler of Mathura was one such evil king; he had a sister named Devaki, who was married to Vasudeva. The day Devaki and Vasudeva got married, a voice from the sky forecasted that Devaki's eighth son will bring an end to Kansa's rule and will kill him. A frightened Kansa held the couple captive. He then vowed that he would kill every child of Devaki and Vasudeva.


A birth story of Shri Krishna

Seeing their first seven children being killed by the cruel Kansa, the imprisoned couple feared giving birth to their eighth child. One night Lord Vishnu appeared before them. He told them that as their son, he will return and rescue them from Kansa's evil deeds. The divine baby was born and the day he was born, Vasudeva found himself magically freed from prison. In a subconscious state, he took the baby away from the prison and placed him in a safer place. Vasudeva reached a house in Gokul, exchanged Lord Krishna with a newborn girl of Nanda and Yashoda, and returned to the prison with the girl child. As soon as Kansa came to know about the newborn, he again tried to kill the child. The infant ascended to the heavens and transformed into the goddess Yogamaya and said, "O foolish Kansa! What will you get by killing me? Your killer is already born."


Childhood of Lord Krishna

Meanwhile, Krishna was raised as a cowherd in Gokul. The childhood of Lord Krishna is filled with stories of his mischievous pranks and incidents that depict his divine nature. According to a popular story, Krishna carried off the gigantic serpent Kaliya from the river to the sea. Sri Krishna also raised the mount Govardhan hill with his little finger and kept it as an umbrella to shield Vrindavan's people from the torrential rain caused by Indra, who was irritated by Krishna. He was popular among the Gopis of Vrindavan, especially Radha. Radha and Lord Krishna grew up together and their story forms the Rasa-Lila. During his boyhood, due to unexpected events, the news confirming that Krishna was indeed the son of Devaki and Vasudev broke out and Krishna had to leave for Mathura, leaving behind his other family of Nanda and Yashoda. On his return to Mathura, he slew Kansa and restored his father to power.


Why Lord Krishna move Mathura to Dwarka

After many years, of considering the kingdom dangerous, he led the Yadavas to Kathiawar's west coast and set up his court in Dwarka. He married a beautiful princess from the Vidarbha kingdom named Rukmini. Lord Krishna married seven other wives Satyabhama, Jambavati, Kalindi, Nagnajiti, Mitravinda, Lakshmana, and Bhadra. Krishna is also famous for having 16,000 wives. Upon killing the demon Narakasura, Krishna placed Bhagdatta on the throne and then freed all of Naraka's prisoners. Amongst the prisoners were 16,000 women whom Narakasura had captured. Knowing that society would not accept women who have been held captive by a demon for years, Krishna married the 16,000 women making them all their wives and giving them a respectable place in society.


Role of Lord Krishna in the Mahabharata war

Shree Krishna became a counselor and friend to Pandava prince Arjuna. In the great war of Kurukshetra between the Kauravas and the Pandavas, Krishna declined to bear arms. Still, he agreed to be present on one side of the army. To avoid any war between the cousins Krishna requested the Kauravas to give a small amount of land to the Pandavas. Duryodhana however, opposed any compromise. Shree Krishna gave his dearest friend Arjuna a choice once war became inevitable. Either he could choose Krishna himself, or he could choose the armies of Krishna. Arjuna preferred Shree Krishna's presence instead of his troops while Duryodhana chose the Narayani Sena.

As the war began, Arjuna was moved by the thought of killing his family members and putting down his weapon. Lord Krishna then advised him about the battle and its repercussions, Karma, the purpose of life and death, and the power of dharma. This conversation between Lord Krishna and Arjuna soon extended into a discourse that was later brought together as the Bhagavad Gita. Bhagavad Gita explains how an aspiring seeker could pursue a union with God. Like previous Indian scriptures, the Bhagavad Gita did not require renunciation of the universe but encouraged acceptance of the earth.

Shree Krishna also revealed his universal form (Vishva Roopa) to Arjuna, showing his full spiritual realization. After this, Arjuna an admirer and relative of Krishna became his disciple. Lord Krishna represents all the human and spiritual elements. He played a human role as an avatar, but at the same time, he was a fully realized spirit, one with god.


Why did Gandhari curse Lord Krishna?

Krishna met Gandhari after the battle of Kurukshetra was over to give her condolences as the Pandavas had won the battle and Gandhari had lost her 100 sons to death. Gandhari in her rage aggressively came up to Lord Krishna and poured her anger on him. According to her, the mass killing could have been avoided by Krishna, but he did not. Her grief turned into vengeance and she cursed Krishna that if her devotion towards Shiva was pure and if she was true to her husband all her life then 36 years from that day Krishna would die. His kingdom Dwarka would be flooded and the entire Yadava clan of Lord Krishna would be destroyed, the same way he made the Kauravas reach death.

36 years later Gandhari's curse came true. Dwarka was consumed by the Arabian Sea, the Yadava race went extinct. Lord Krishna and Balarama had left the mortal world and Kali-Yuga had arrived. The Pandavas felt that there was no purpose left for their existence.

Kalki Avatar

Kalki is the final or tenth avatar of Lord Vishnu who has not taken birth yet. Kalki will appear on earth towards the end of Kali-Yuga. In Hinduism, there are four Yugas namely, Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga, Dwapara Yuga, and Kali Yuga. These four cycles rotate just like our calendar months. The present age is the Kali Yuga and it will last for 432000 years. It is believed that we have already passed 5000 years from the battle of Kurukshetra, which means there are still 427000 years left and as per Srimad Bhagavatam the Lord Kalki will arrive at the end of the Kali-Yuga. We will be discussing Yugas in Hinduism later in the next article.

By the time Kali-Yuga ends, the bodies of all creatures will be greatly reduced in size, and the religious principles of Varanashrama will be ruined. The path of the Vedas will be completely forgotten in human society, and the so-called religion will be mostly atheistic. The rulers mostly will be thieves, the occupation of men will be stealing, lying, and needless violence, and all the social classes will be reduced to the lowest level. Cows will be killed; spiritual centers will be no different from a mundane house, and family ties will extend no further than the immediate bonds of marriage. Most plants and herbs will disappear, seasons will go awry, a home will be devoid of piety and there will be no morality.

Vishnu Avatar - Kalki Avatar


Where Kalki avatar will be born

In these devastating times Kali-Yuga, the supreme personality of godhead will appear on the earth. Acting with the power of pure spiritual goodness, He will rescue eternal religion. Lord Vishnu Will appears in a Brahman family as Kalki, the son of Vishnuvyas, and his wife Sumati in the village of Sambhala. Sage Yajnavalkya will be the Acharya of Kalkideva as described in Agni-Purana. It is said that Kalki will marry the Padma, the daughter of king Brihadratha and his wife Kaumudi of the island of Simhale.


Explain the symbolism and meaning behind Kalki Avatar's appearance and mission

Riding a white horse named Devadutta with a sword in hand, Kalki will mow down evil and corrupt and ensure the reign of Dharma. Lightning, thunder, heavy rain, and harsh sun are frequently associated with Kalki Avatar. The main motive of Lord Kalki would be to destroy all barbarians and thieves from the earth and make the earth a peaceful place to live in. Apart from that, it is also said that Lord Kalki would defeat the kings under Kali and hand over the rule of earth to Devapi and Maru the religious king of Kali Yugas.


Discuss the significance of Kalki Avatar in Hindu mythology

Kalki avatar shall establish the principles of eternal religion once again and the people of the earth will return to the path of righteousness. After the earth is rid of all the imposters, the citizens shall be able to smell the winds carrying the most sacred fragrance of sandalwood paste and other divine elements associated with Vishnu. Thus, their body and mind shall be purified. This will mark the beginning of Satya-Yuga, an era of virtue, enlightenment, and spirituality. At that moment, the sun, moon, and Brihaspati (Jupiter) shall collectively be in the constellation of Karkata (Cancer). These three shall together enter the lunar mansion of Pushya Nakshatra.

According to some legends of the end of the world, Kalki's horse will stamp the earth with its right foot, causing the earth to drop into the deep. Then the gods will restore the earth once again to its former purity.



According to Hindu mythology, Lord Vishnu is said to be the protector of the three worlds. We find an example of this in all the incarnations mentioned above. All the incarnations of Lord Vishnu were only for the protection of the universe, he took all the incarnations to destroy the unrighteousness and establish the truth again.
