An emanation of Vishnu in the form of a boar. The Earth was once submerged in water by the Demon Hiranyaksa. Vishnu descended on earth in the form of the boar and overcame the Demon. He then cut out the earth and caused it to float on the surface of the ocean. The god Hari then came and created life.
