The Tale of Lord Varaha:

The story of Lord Varaha traces back to the time, in Sat Yuga.

The story begins, with Jay and Vijay, who were the gatekeepers of Vaikunth Dham.

One day, 4 kumars, the sons of Lord Brahma had come to meet Lord Vishnu in Vaikunth Dham.

Jay and Vijay saw that Lord Vishnu was resting and so didn’t allow the kumars to see Lord Vishnu.

So, they faced a curse from four kumaras for refusing them entry into the realm of Lord Vishnu.

In their next birth, Jay and Vijay became Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakashipu. They were very strong and started conquering the world through wars.

Hiranyaksha wreaked havoc across realms, stealing Mother Earth and hiding her beneath the ocean.

To rescue the world, Lord Vishnu reincarnated as a boar (Varaha) and defeated Hiranyaksha, lifting the Earth with his tusks.

This act of valour and sacrifice made Lord Varaha a symbol of salvation and protector of the Earth.

Angered by this, Hiranyakashipu decided to gain a boon of invulnerability by performing a penance to propitiate Brahma.

After his subjugation of the three worlds, he is slain by the Narasimha avatar of Vishnu.
