    Legend

     

    According to a legend, when Vishnu stayed in his abode, Vaikunta, it was guarded by two gatekeepers. They were Jaya and Vijaya and both of them were boars. They were very sincere about their job and allowed only few beings to meet Vishnu and as they knew how precious was his time. Once four of Brahma’s son came to meet Vishnu but they were denied entrance by the two guards.  The four sons became furious and decided to curse the boars. They cursed that they will be stripped off their high status and live on earth as normal humans.

     

    Suddenly the gate opened and Vishnu stood in front of them. Being an almighty and all-powerful, he knew everything that had happened outside the gate. He told the four sons of BrahmaBrahmaBrahma
    According to Hinduism, the whole creation is the work of Trimurti (the Hindu Trinity)...
    that Jaya and Vijaya were only performing their duties and giving him some time to rest but the sons were adamant. They said that they won’t take their curse back as no devotee should be denied entrance in the house of Vishnu and no reason is sufficient enough to keep devotees away from their God.

     

    Jaya and Vijaya turned towards Vishnu and spoke while they cried that they didn’t mind the curse but were unwilling to stay away from Vishnu. Impressed by their dedication, Vishnu gave them two options. They could either take seven births as Vishnu’s devotees and then retain their status or they can take three births as Vishnu’s enemies who will be killed by himself, thus providing them moksha. Jaya and Vijaya couldn’t bear the separation of seven births thus they opted for the second options.

     

    They then took form of two demons named Hiranyakashipu and Hiranyaksha. Hiranyaksha was a staunch devotee of Brahma from whom he obtained a boon. He could not be killed by a human, God or a demon. He started creating havoc on earth and decided to trouble all beings. Earth was dominated by injustice and falsity. Gods were worried and started praying to Vishnu for help.

     

    Meanwhile the demon had stolen the earth and hidden it in the deep, dark pits of a sea. Vishnu then took a form of an animal, a boar because of the Hiranyaksha’s boon and fought with him for thousands of years. Varaha finally defeated the demon and placed the earth on his two tusks to bring it above the sea level and restore its position in the universe.
