“The next incarnation is Varaha, who appeared in the form of a boar or hog. He delivered this earthly planet by His tusks, and kept the whole world on His tusks. We can only just imagine how big He appeared! The world at that time appeared just like the moon disc decorated with some marks. So keśava dhṛta-varāha-śarīra. He says, “My dear Lord, You have appeared as the great boar. So let me offer my respectful obeisances unto You.”
