Garuda Purana
..part 1
Sage Suta once reached Naimisharanya in course of his pilgrimage. There he foundnumerous sages engaged in austerities and penance. All of them were delighted to findSutaji in their midst and considered it as a God sent opportunity to get their doubtsrelated with religious topics cleared. Sage Shaunak was also present there and heasked Sutji --' O revered sage! Who is the creator of this world? Who nurtures it andwho annihilates it in the end? How can one realize the supreme Almighty? How manyincarnations the Almighty has taken till now? Please enlighten us on all these things,which are shrouded in mystery.'Sutji replied--' I am going to reveal to you the contents of Garuda Puran, whichcontains the divine tales of Lord Vishnu. This particular Puran is named after Garudabecause he was the one who first narrated these tales to sage Kashyap. Kashyapsubsequently narrated them to sage Vyas. I came to know about these divine talesfrom sage Vyas. Lord Vishnu is the supreme almighty and the source of all creations.He is the nurturer of this world and the annihilator as well. Though he is beyond thebondage of birth and death yet he takes incarnations to protect the world from thetyranny of sinners. His first incarnation was in the form of the eternal adolescent Sanatkumar and others who were all celibates and extremely virtuous.''Lord Vishnu took his second incarnation in the form of a boar (Varah) to protect theEarth from the mighty demon named Hiranyaksha, who had abducted her to Patal loka(Nether world). In his third incarnation as Narad, he propagated the virtues of 'nishkaam karma' (performing one's duties without bothering about the results). In hisfourth incarnation as Nar-Narayan, he performed arduous austerities for the protectionand propagation of Dharma or religiousness.Lord Vishnu's fifth incarnation was as Kapil, which he took to protect the Saankhyashashtra, which was on the verge of becoming extinct. He took his sixth incarnation inthe house of Atri and Anusuya as Dattatreya with the specific objective of propagatingthe most secret Brahma vidya to worthy people. His disciples included virtuous soulslike Prahalad and others. Lord Vishnu took his seventh incarnation as the son of RuchiPrajapati and Aakuti and was known as Yagya deva. His eighth incarnation was asRishabh deva- the son of sage Naabhi and Merudevi.In this incarnation he established the norms for Grihashtha ashram, which later onbecame the guidelines for every householders. Lord Vishnu took his ninth incarnationas Prithu and 'milked'(extracted) various nutrients (cereals, pulses etc.) from the Earthwho had disguised herself as a cow and thus protected the populace from gettingstarved to death.In his tenth incarnation as Matsya (fish), he protected the life of Vaivaswat Manu, whowould not have survived otherwise. Lord Vishnu took his eleventh incarnation in theform of a tortoise (kurma) and held the Mandarachal mountain on his back at the timewhen the ocean was being churned. His twelfth incarnation was as Dhanvantari andthirteenth as the most enchanting beauty- Mohini to retrieve the ambrosia pot from thepossession of the demons. He subsequently distributed it among the deities as theresult of which they became immortal.In his fourteenth incarnation, Lord Vishnu manifested himself as 'Nrisimha' (partlyhuman and partly lion) and to protect his devotee- Prahlad killed the wicked demonHiranyakashipu by tearing apart his abdomen with his sharp claws. His fifteenthincarnation was as Vaman (dwarf) in which he demanded all the three worlds from Bali-
the most benevolent demon king and then sent him to Patal loka. In his sixteenthincarnation as Parshuram, he wiped out the whole caste of kshatriyas from the face of the earth for twenty-one times, as they had all become immoral.In his seventeenth incarnation he was born as Vyas to Parashar and Satyavati andaccomplished his mission of propagating the knowledge of Vedas by categorizingthem into four parts. In his eighteenth incarnation he manifested himself as Sri Ram.His nineteenth incarnation was as Krishna and his twentieth incarnation as Balram. Hewill take his twenty-first incarnation as Kalki and will be born to a Brahmin namedVishnuyasha to liberate the earth from the sinners.'HOW GARUDA PURAN WAS PROPAGATED
On being asked by the sages as to how did he come to know about the contents of GarudaPuran, Sutji told them--' Once, I had gone to Badrikashram, where I met sage Vyas. Irequested him to enlighten me on various spiritual matters to which he agreed saying that hewas going to narrate the tales of Garuda Purana which was first told by Lord Brahma toNarad, Daksha Prajapati and myself. Sage Vyas then told Sutji how once he along withNarad, Daksha and Bhrigu had gone to Brahmaloka to see Lord Brahma. After reachingthere, all three of them requested Lord Brahma to shed light on the essence of the realknowledge.Lord Brahma revealed to them that Garuda Puran contained the essence of all the scripturesand Lord Vishnu himself had narrated its divine tales to him (Brahma). Describing the incidentwhen Lord Vishnu had told the divine tales of Garuda Puran to him as well as Shiva, LordBrahma said-- ' I once went to Kailash mountain accompanied by Indra and other deities. Wefound Shiva engrossed in his meditation. We were amazed and asked him as to who was hemeditating upon.Lord Shiva told us that he was meditating upon the omnipresent, omniscient and theomnipotent Vishnu- in whom the entire universe exists. Lord Shiva also revealed to us thatthis was all he knew of Vishnu's power and also that if we wanted to know more about himthen we will have to ask Lord Vishnu himself. So, all of us including Shiva went to Vishnu lokaand requested Lord Vishnu to clear our doubts on various topics which confused us. LordVishnu gave a long discourse covering all the major religious topics.
