detailed account is worth hearing. This Varaha Swamy is the third incarnation of
Srimahavishnu taken to rescue Bhumata, when thrown into sea by Hiranyaksha. That
egoistic formidable danava to avenge destruction caused to asurakula by Devas
rolled the earth and hurled into the ocean. When Bhumatha cried piteously for
succor Mahavishnu descending in the form of white boar uplifted her and killed
that cruel demon. To protect the afflicted he made this hill his permanent
abode. So it is called Varahadri. Later, when Srinivasa came down to this place
and supplicated refuge at the instance of Vakuladevi, He granted asylum
unconditionally. So! the grateful beneficiary - Srinivasa ordained
that agrapuja to be offered to him every day, and devotees must avail his darsan
first before entering the main sanctum. And then only the yatra becomes
complete, life charitartha. This holy injunction is followed even today
meticulously with elaborate ritualistic worship. Understand, that none is
entitled to get emancipation, if he willfully disregards that Devine order."
Uncle Uncle, we are extremely happy that we worshiped him first without knowing.
Now continue explaining the circumstances for the descent of Mahavishnu to this
It is the topic now demanding full attention. Earlier I mentioned that the
puranas are many and among them Bhavishyothara is very popular and it gives us a
graphic account of every aspect it and it is a 14 long chapter legend.
