The Fish Avatar Matsya

the Worldwide Flood

Brahma (Father) knew that the people on earth would not be able to make use of the Vedas (scriptures) until they were purified. He knew that social values had degenerated, and hence, the need for reestablishing humanity had risen. Therefore, he sought help from Shiva (leader of evil spirits) to destroy humanity only to produce a conducive atmosphere for a revival of the human race.

Vishnu knew about Shiva’s plan to cause massive floods. Therefore, he incarnated in the form of Matsya (a fish). Moreover, he had to save Manu and his wife Shatarupa, the couple that would be instrumental in conceiving humans once again.


Genesis 5:7

And behold, I, even I will bring in a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh wherein shall be the breath of life, from under Heaven. Everything that lives on the earth shall die. But with you will I establish my covenant, even as I have sworn unto your father Enoch, that from a remnant of your posterity should come all nations. And you shall come into the ark — you, and your sons, and your wife, and your sons’ wives with you. And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every kind shall you bring into the ark, to keep alive with you. They shall be male and female, of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind. Two of every kind shall you take into the ark to keep alive. And take unto yourself of all food that is eaten, and you shall gather fruit of every kind unto yourself in the ark; and it shall be for food for you and for them. Thus did Noah, according to all that God commanded him.


Nor far horizon, nor the space between;  for everywhere around Spread the wild waste of waters, reeking atmosphere, and boundless sky.  And now when all the world was deluged, nought appeared above the waves  But Manu and the seven sages, and the fish that drew the bark.

Bhāgavata Purāna

'In seven days from the present time, O thou tamer of enemies! the three worlds will be plunged in an ocean of death; but, in the midst of the destroying waves, a large vessel sent by me for thy use shall stand before thee. Then thou shalt take all medicinal herbs, all the varieties of seeds, and accompanied by seven saints, encircled by pairs of brute animals, thou shalt enter the spacious ark, and continue in it secure from the flood, on one immense ocean without light, except the radiance of thy holy companions.

From the Satapatha Brāhmana

The Fish Avatar

There lived in ancient time a holy man
 Called Manu, who, by penances and prayers,
 Had won the favour of the lord of heaven.
 One day they brought him water for ablution;

Then, as he washed his hands,. a little fish
 Appeared, and spoke in human accents thus:
 ‘Take care of me, and I will be thy saviour.’
 ‘From what wilt thou preserve me?’ Manu asked.
 The fish replied, ‘A flood will sweep away
All creatures; I will rescue thee from that.’

 ‘But how shall I preserve thee?’ Manu said.
 The fish rejoined, ‘So long as we are small,
 We are in constant danger of destruction,
 For fish eat fish; so keep me in a jar.

 ‘In such and such a year the flood will come;
 Therefore construct a ship, and pay me homage.
 When the flood rises, enter thou the ship,
 And I will rescue thee.’ So Manu did As he was ordered, and preserved the fish,
 Then carried it in safety to the ocean;
 And in the very year the fish enjoined
 He built a ship, and paid the fish respect,
 And there took refuge when the flood arose.
 Soon near him swam the fish, and to its horn
 Manu made fast the cable of his vessel.
 Thus drawn along the waters, Manu passed
 Beyond the northern mountain. Then the fish,
 Addressing Manu, said, ‘I have preserved thee,
 Quickly attach the ship to yonder tree;
 But, lest the waters sink from under thee,
 As fast as they subside, so fast shalt thou
 Descend the mountain gently after them.’
 Thus he descended front the northern mountain.
 The flood had swept away all living creatures;
 Manu alone was left.


According to Bhagavata Purana Krishna was born without a sexual union, by “mental transmission” from the mind of Vasudeva into the womb of Devaki, his mother.  The Mind of God is also known as the Spirit of God. Lectures on Faith 5:2.
Christ and Krishna were called both God and the Son of God. Both were sent from heaven to earth in the form of a man. Both were called Savior, and the second person of the Trinity. Krishna’s adoptive human father was also a carpenter. A spirit or ghost was their actual father. Krishna and Jesus were of royal descent. Both were visited at birth by wise men and shepherds, guided by a star. Angels in both cases issued a warning that the local dictator planned to kill the baby and had issued a decree for his assassination. The parents fled. Mary and Joseph stayed in Muturea; Krishna’s parents stayed in Mathura.

Jehovah YHWH (יְהֹוָה) is the premortal identity of Jesus Christ.  “Truly, truly I say unto you, before Abraham was, I Am.”

Jesus is recognized by some Hindus as an avatar of Vishnu.  However, there is evidence that Krishna and Jesus are the same person; the difference being the perspective and culture of the people who maintained the records.

Vishnu is among the most important deities of Hinduism. Along with Brahma (Father Ahman), Vishnu forms the principal trinity of Hindu religious practice.

In his many forms, Vishnu is regarded as the preserver and protector. Hinduism teaches that when humanity is threatened by chaos or evil, Vishnu will descend into the world in one of his incarnations to restore righteousness.

Vishnu has many avatars in Hinduism, or identities by which he is known. 

Narasimha (The Man-Lion) – Lion of Judah

Lord Rama, the Perfect Man. Lord Rama is the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Lord Rama is said to have taken birth on earth to annihilate the evil forces of the age. He is always holding a bow and arrow indicating his readiness to destroy evils

Krishna is the most widely recognized avatar of Vishnu.

From Sacred Texts

“…whoever drinks from the living water which I shall give him shall live from eternity to eternity, for the Source in me will be the power to rise upward forever, worlds without end.”

“I am the light of the world; he that follows me will not walk in darkness, but shall be guided by the light of life.”

“The spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty has given me life.”

“…and after that ye are baptized with water, behold, I will baptize you with fire and with the holy ghost.”

O son of Kunti [Arjuna], I am the taste of water, the light of the sun and the moon, the syllable om in the Vedic mantras; I am the sound in ether and ability in man. (Bhagavad-gita 7.8)

I am the original fragrance of the earth, and I am the heat in fire. I am the life of all that lives, and I am the penances of all ascetics. (Bhagavad-gita 7.9)

Krishna vs Christ

When the Shepherds arrived the baby Jesus was lying in a manger; the sign that the angel had given them.  However at the time in Jerusalem mangers were made of stone and used for watering the animals.  The wooden manger filled with hay is a depiction of European artists. 

Krishna is here depicted being bathed n a water basin and visited by cow herds.

Both Christ and Krishna withdrew to the wilderness as adults, and fasted. Both were identified as “the seed of the woman bruising the serpent’s head.” Jesus was called “the lion of the tribe of Judah.” Krishna was called “the lion of the tribe of Saki.”
Both claimed: “I am the Resurrection.” Both were “without sin.” Both were god-men: being considered both human and divine. Both performed many miracles, including the healing of disease. One of the first miracles that both performed was to make a leper whole. Each cured “all manner of diseases.” Both cast out indwelling demons, and raised the dead. Both selected disciples to spread his teachings. Both were meek, and merciful. Both were criticized for associating with sinners. Both celebrated a last supper. Both forgave his enemies. Both were crucified and both were resurrected.
They relate how Krishna (literally “black,” or “dark as a cloud”) was born into the Yadava clan (House of David), the son of Vasudeva (God the Father) and Devaki (Mary), who was the sister of Kamsa (King Herod), the wicked king of Mathura.  Mary wasn’t Herod’s sister, but she was a literal descendant of King David and she and her children would have legitimate claim on the kingdom of Israel).   Kamsa (Herod), hearing a prophecy that he would be destroyed (the kingdom of Israel taken from him) by Devaki’s child, tried to slay her children (Matt 2:16, slaughter of the innocents), but Krishna was smuggled (Matt 2:13) across the Yamuna River to Gokula (or Vraja, modern Gokul), where he was raised by the leader of the cowherds, Nanda, and his wife Yashoda.  It may be that Mary and Joseph took on aliases while in hiding.
The child Krishna was adored for his mischievous pranks; he also performed many miracles and slew demons. As a youth, the cowherd Krishna became renowned as a lover, the sound of his flute prompting the gopis (wives and daughters of the cowherds) to leave their homes to dance ecstatically with him in the moonlight. His favourite among them was the beautiful Radha. At length, Krishna and his brother Balarama returned to Mathura to slay the wicked Kamsa. Afterward, finding the kingdom unsafe, Krishna led the Yadavas to the western coast of Kathiawar and established his court at Dvaraka (modern Dwarka, Gujarat). He married the princess Rukmini and took other wives as well.

Krishna refused to bear arms in the great war between the Kauravas (sons of Dhritarashtra, the descendant of Kuru) and the Pandavas (sons of Pandu), but he offered a choice of his personal attendance to one side and the loan of his army to the other. The Pandavas chose the former, and Krishna thus served as charioteer for Arjuna, one of the Pandava brothers.  (This might be a story we don’t have record for, of a conflict in Egypt while he was there). 
On his return to Dvaraka, a brawl broke out one day among the Yadava chiefs (pharisees)  in which Krishna’s brother (the familial tie is his cousin, John the Baptist) and son (John, having been born again, so to speak would have been considered spiritual offspring of Jesus Christ) were slain. As the god sat in the forest lamenting (Matthew 14:13, mourning the death of John and then sorrowing in the Garden of Gethsemane) , a huntsman, mistaking him for a deer (parable-like, where Roman soldiers thinking this is a legitimate arrest), shot him in his one vulnerable spot, the heel killing him. (Genesis 3:15, where God tells Adam and Eve that the Savior will bruise his heel while stepping on the head of the snake).
Parvati (Sanskrit: पार्वती, IAST: Pārvatī) or Uma (IAST: Umā) is the Hindu goddess of fertility (Eve)

Bhagavad Bita - Ascension text of Arjuna

Bhagavad Gita 9:27 Whatever you do, whatever you eat, whatever you offer or give away, and whatever austerities you perform – do that, O son of Kuntī, as an offering to Me.



Genesis 3:3 Wherefore, you shall do all that you do in the name of the Son. And you shall repent and call upon God in the name of the Son for ever more.


Kalki (meaning “eternity” or “mighty warrior”) is the last incarnation of Vishnu. He is not expected to appear until the end of Kali Yuga, the current time period. Kalki will come, it is believed, to rid the world of oppression by unrighteous rulers. It is said that he will appear riding a white horse and carrying a fiery sword.

It is said that the main mission of Lord Kalki to appear on the earth would be to destroy Koli which would signify an evil person. The main motive of Lord Kalki would be to destroy all barbarians and thieves from the earth and make the earth peaceful place to live in.

Apart from that, it is also said that Lord Kalki would defeat the Kings called to Koli and hand over the rule to Devapi and Maru the religious king of Koli yugas.

After the defeat and destruction of evil on earth, the Satya Yuga (millennium) dawns.  Kalki will bring golden age.  Kalki will divide the earth into kingdoms among his generals where there is no death and take them to Vaikuntha (highest kingdom) with Kalki.  Having finished his mission of restoring peace, Kalki will rule.
