The Divine Boar Incarnation: Varaha and His Significance in Hindu Mythology

Varaha Dev is the white Boar incarnation of Lord Shri Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Whenever there is a discrepancy in the religious principles followed by the living entities in the material world, the Lord advents and re-establishes religiosity and kills the miscreants. He is the maintainer of the entire universe and comes personally to protect His devotees from great difficulties. The devotees of the Lord always remain engaged in His devotional service and thus experience the highest form of spiritual bliss.

Which demon was killed by Varaha?

The pastime of Lord Varaha killing a demon is elaborately mentioned in the third Canto of Srimad Bhagavatam. There were two demoniac brothers named Hiranyakashipu and Hiranyaksha, the sons of Kashyap Muni. They bore uncommon bodily features and thus flaunted their supremacy everywhere. Their bodies grew just like mountains, touching the sky, and they blocked the view in all directions. The demon Hiranyaksha once upon a time exploited enough gold from the earth, causing it to go out of orbit. The planet then fell into the causal ocean. Seeing this, Lord Brahma, the creator of the universe, was thinking about how to lift the earth from the ocean. He prayed to the Supreme Lord, who then took the form of a small white boar and came out from his nostril. He then grew taller and taller and looked like a gigantic elephant. The Lord dived into the ocean and took the earth on His tusk and lifted it. He then looked at the Hiranyaksha demon with His eyes full of rage and killed him in the water.

What does Varaha symbolize?

The word Varaha is a Sanskrit term that translates into “Boar”. The Acharyas in the path of Bhakti explain that the Supreme Lord took the form of a boar to exhibit His extraordinary potency and to show that out of love and care towards His devotees, He can assume any form to carry out the purpose of relieving them from the danger of demons or non-devotees. The special form of Varaha Dev symbolizes the victory of righteousness over evil. The Lord never fails to reciprocate with His devotees who remain always absorbed in His thoughts.

Although the Supreme Lord Krishna took the form of a boar, it is not to be mistaken as a material form that eventually perishes. The Lord is eternally situated in His spiritual form which is full of bliss and knowledge. When Lord Varaha Dev defeated Hiranyaksha and killed him, He returned to His own abode in the spiritual abode. All the demigods, knowing that no one is equal or greater than the Lord, offered their respectful obeisance to Him and sang His glories.
