KURMA

Lord Vishnu's second Avatar.

When the Gods roped the demons into helping them churn the cosmic milky ocean, they used Mount Mandara as a giant stirring stick and Vasuki, the king of snakes, as a pully to make it spin.

Unfortunately their masterplan came unstuck as the biggest hand whisk in the cosmos began to sink into the soft ocean bed.

Vishnu saved the day, and all eternity in fact, when he took the form of Kurma a ginormous man turtle and supported the weight of the golden mountain on his shell.

See Samudra Manthan and Avatar's of Vishnu.
