Kurma (2)


in Hindu mythology, is the incarnation of the god Vishnu as a tortoise. When the mountain Mandar was moved into the milky sea, for the purpose of preparing the drink of immortality, it threatened to sink in the waves; but Vishnu, in his second incarnation, supported it as a tortoise, and thus the world now stands.
