Translated by P. Ramachander This armour is about the Varaha incarnation of Lord Vishnu. He took this incarnation to save Earth which was stolen by an Asura called Hiranyaksha who afterwards hid himself in the deep depths of the causal ocean. Lord Vishnu , in the avatar of a huge boar, entered the ocean, killed Hiranyaksha, and rescued Mother Earth.
