LORD Varaha SATISFIES PRITHVI'S CURIOSITY
The mountain ranges situated to the south of Himalaya are Arunachala, Hasti, Gridhachala and Ghatikachala. Sages believe that in Satyayuga Lord Vishnu had his abode at Anjana Mountain, while in tretayuga, dwaparyuga and Kaliyuga he has his abode at Narayangiri, Sinhachala and Shrivenketachala (This is nothing the present Tirupati) respectively. Lord Varahaa and Prithvi flew away towards Venkatachalgiri mounted on Garuda.
LORD Varaha MANTRA
On their way, Prithvi requested Lord Varaha to reveal the sacred mantra, chanting of which makes him pleased.
Lord Varaha said--'The secret mantra that pleases me to no limits is ---OM NAMO SHRIVarahaAYa DHARANYU UDDHARNAYa SWAHA. This mantra is capable of liberating a man and also brings all sort of worldly accomplishments to him. In the first Krita yuga, a Manu named Dharma had realized me by continuously chanting this mantra. Even Indra regained the control of heaven by chanting it. Ananta--the lord of all serpents, chanted Varaha mantra and as a result became capable of holding the earth on it's hood.'
