    Story of Matsya Avatar

     
    Legend has it that the king of pre-ancient Dravida called Satyavrata, later known as Manu, was an ardent devotee of Vishnu. One day, when he was washing his hands in a river, a little fish swam into his hands. It pleaded him to save its life. The king put it in a jar and it soon outgrew. The fish was then moved to a tank, a river and then to the ocean. Vishnu, who was in the disguise of the fish, told him that a flood would occur within seven days that would destroy all life.
     
    Matsya asked Satyavrata to collect herbs, seeds and animals, to assemble all the seven rishis (Saptarishis) and wait. He advised to build a giant boat and fill it up with all the flora and fauna on the earth and that Vishnu would meet him again at a selected time. 

    The boat was towed by the Lord himself and tied to a horn he had manifested on his head. The huge flood occurred as expected and it destroyed the planet. However ManuManuManu
    Manu, also popularly known Satyavrata Manu or Shraddha Deva Manu, is regarded as the ancestor of all humanity according to Hinduism.
    and his wife and the samples of every species were safe. The havoc stopped after a few years and the boat was then towed to a land. It is said that the king and his queen started a new life using the samples of various species. They created a new life on earth.

    According to Hinduism, the whole creation is the work of Trimurti (the Hindu Trinity)...
