Thou art the boar with protruding teeth and supporting the earth. (Maru M. 5, p. 1082) Hiranyaksha, was the brother of the tyrant demon king Hiranyakashipu. He propitiated Brahma and attained the boon of invincibility. He was exempted from hurt by god, man or beast. In great pride, he began to harrass the gods and men.
He even dragged the earth to the nether-regions under the waters where from it was saved by Vishnu, who assumed the form of a boar and caused it to float again.He killed the tyrant demon with his tusks. See : Das Avatars â€”the boar incarnation and also Hiranyakashipu .
