This Once in lifetime Murti – Varaha Avatar is from Rani ki Vav, Patan, Gujarat.

We Visit temples but rarely pay attention to what Murtis of our gods had to convey us.

They are encyclopaedia, holding volumes of stories to say us.

1) Prabhaavali/PrabhaaMandala – Like ring of light around God, it’s a ornamental circular ring with many “Jwalas” or emblems related to the God. Here we can see Avataras of Sri Vishnu.
2) Padma Chatra/Atapatra – Used for high dignitaries. It’s the symbol of High Spiritual power. Just imagine how did they sculpt that delicate umbrella and it stays there without breaking for generations.
3) Bhudevi – Rescued form patalaloka being drowned by Asura Hiranyaksha with BhujaaMadhya (Elbow). Observe that affectionate touch of Bhudevi on Varaha Mukha.

4) Kaumodaki Gada – Symbol of supreme Sovereignty.
5) Varaha Avatar – the third avatar of Sri Vishnu – the god himself.

6) Panchajanya Sankha – Representation of PranavaNadam – AUM. Instruction of a commander for war on evil forces.

7) Sudarshana Chakra – Represents Dharma. Cycle of Samsara
8) Katyavalambita Mudra – Hand hanged down to rest on hip. Indicates the posture of ease & Confidence at which Varaha handles Hiranyaksha.
9) Alidam – the PadaMudra of action also seen in Tripurantaka, Anjaneya & Arjuna.

10) Patalaloka – from where Bhudevi is rescued, we can see the Nagaraja & Nagarani in Anjali mudra.
