Matsya Avatar is the first of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu in the form of a fish. He saved humanity and other living beings and the Vedas from total destruction. Matsya the fish is believed to denote the first stage of evolution. King Satyavrata or Manu with the great spiritual guidance of Lord Vishnu in the form of Matsya created a new world – the Treta Yuga after Satya Yuga came to an end after a deluge. This is symbolic of the fact that creation does not come to an end but continues era after era. The boat represents moksha which helps one to cross the mighty ocean of challenges to gain salvation. The boat after it reaches its destination is anchored to a cliff in the Himalayas which symbolizes the boundary between existence, and on the other side lies moksha. The duty of a king is to protect his people and that’s what King Manu does and it’s the god’s duty to save mankind in all adversities.
The lord rescues the seven sages (saptarishi), the Vedas, seeds and saplings and other animals from the great deluge by transferring them to a boat. Vasuki, the snake becomes a rope that’s tied to the boat and horn of Matsya that safely transports the inhabitants to another world and thus begins another yuga, the Treta Yuga. Matsya avatar also stresses the fact that there’s no beginning or end only transformation. When nature starts its destruction process, God incarnates to main the equilibrium and a new world originates and thus the cycle continues. That forms the core of Matsya avatar.
