In relation to the Matsya avatar of Lord Vishnu, it is also believed that he wore this avatar to save the earth from the flood. It is believed that when human is lost in the morass of injustice and unrighteousness, then Lord Vishnu incarnates to show him the right path.

India is rarely religious religion.
Abhuthanam unrighteous tadatmanam srijamayamam
Paritranaya sadhunam vinashay cha duskritam.
Dharmasansthapanarthay sambhavami yuge-yuge.

That is, whenever there is loss of religion and uplift of unrighteousness, then I arise in different ages (taking shelter of Maya) for the sacrifice of gentlemen and the destruction of the wicked.

Mythology of Matsya Avatar: mythological story

According to the legend, at the beginning of the universe, knowledge of the Vedas came out of the mouth of Prajapati Brahma, and Asura Hayagreeva stole that knowledge and hid it in the sea. Then Lord Vishnu incarnated as his primary incarnation Matsya and made himself a small, helpless fish in front of King Satyavrat Manu.

Satyavrat was offering arghya to Suryadev in the morning when a fish asked him to keep me in his kamandal. At this, the king kept the fish in his kamandala according to mercy and religion and went towards the house, till the house reached, the fish became the shape of that kamandal, the king placed it on a vessel, but after some time, that fish became that vessel. Shaped up.

Finally, when the king cast him into the sea, he covered the whole sea. That golden-colored fish revealed his divine identity and appeared to Satyavrat in his true form and said that on the seventh day of that day, the Holocaust will come, after which the new creation of the world will come. And asked to collect animals, Sapta Rishi etc. and store them in the boat sent by the Lord.

He also said that at this time when the boat starts to waver due to the severe thunderstorm, then I will save you all in the form of fish. You guys tie the boat to my horn. I will keep pulling your boat till the end of the Holocaust. At that time Lord Matsya tied the boat to the top of the Himalayas. The peak is called ‘naukabandha’.

On the seventh day, exactly what Lord Vishnu had said, upon calming the outbreak of the typhoon, Lord Vishnu killed Hayagriva in the form of a fish and handed over the Vedas again to Brahmaji. When Brahma wakes up from his sleep which was at the end of the synagogue, it is called the night of Brahma.

God gave the knowledge of Veda back to King Satyavrat when the Holocaust was over. King Satyavrata is known as Vaivasvata Manu with knowledge and science. Those who were saved in this boat, they came back to life again in the world.
