matsy avatar bhagavan vishnu ke pratham avatar hai. machhali ke roop men avatar lekar bhagavan vishnu ne ek rishi ko sab prakar ke jiv-jantu ekatrit karane ke liye kaha aur prithvi jab jal men doob rahi thi, tab matsy avatar men bhagavan ne us rishi ki nav ki raksha ki. isake pashchath brahma ne punah jivan ka nirman kiya. ek doosari manyata ke anusar ek rakshas ne jab vedon ko chura kar sagar ki athah gaharaee men chhupa diya, tab bhagavan vishnu ne matsy roop dharan karake vedon ko prapt kiya aur unhen punah sthapit kiya.

matsy avatar ki katha

ek bar brahmaji ki asavadhani ke karan ek bahut bade daity ne vedon ko chura liya. us daity ka nam 'hayagriv' tha. vedon ko chura lie jane ke karan gyan lupt ho gaya. charon or agyanata ka andhakar phail gaya aur pap tatha adharm ka bolabala ho gaya. tab bhagavan vishnu ne dharm ki raksha ke lie matsy roop dharan karake hayagriv ka vadh kiya aur vedon ki raksha ki. bhagavan ne matsy ka roop kis prakar dharan kiya. isaki vismayakarini katha is prakar hai-
kalpant ke poorv ek punyatma raja tap kar raha tha. raja ka nam satyavrat tha. satyavrat punyatma to tha hi, bade udar hriday ka bhi tha. prabhat ka samay tha. sooryoday ho chuka tha. satyavrat kritamala nadi men snan kar raha tha. usane snan karane ke pashchath jab tarpan ke lie anjali men jal liya, to anjali men jal ke sath ek chhoti-si machhali bhi a gee. satyavrat ne machhali ko nadi ke jal men chhod diya. machhali boli- "rajan! jal ke bade-bade jiv chhote-chhote jivon ko marakar kha jate hain. avashy koee bada jiv mujhe bhi marakar kha jaega. kripa karake mere pranon ki raksha kijie." satyavrat ke hriday men daya utpann ho uthi. usane machhali ko jal se bhare hue apane kamndalu men dal liya. tabhi ek ashcharyajanak ghatana ghati. ek rat men machhali ka sharir itana badh gaya ki kamndalu usake rahane ke lie chhota padane laga. doosare din machhali satyavrat se boli- "rajan! mere rahane ke lie koee doosara sthan dhoondhie, kyonki mera sharir badh gaya hai. mujhe ghoomane-phirane men bada kasht hota hai." satyavrat ne machhali ko kamndalu se nikalakar pani se bhare hue matake men rakh diya. yahan bhi machhali ka sharir rat bhar men hi matake men itana badh gaya ki mataka bhi usake rahane ki lie chhota pad gaya. doosare din machhali punah satyavrat se boli- "rajan! mere rahane ke lie kahin aur prabndh kijie, kyonki mataka bhi mere rahane ke lie chhota pad raha hai." tab satyavrat ne machhali ko nikalakar ek sarovar men dal kiya, kintu sarovar bhi machhali ke lie chhota pad gaya. isake bad satyavrat ne machhali ko nadi men aur phir usake bad samudr men dal diya. ashchary! samudr men bhi machhali ka sharir itana adhik badh gaya ki machhali ke rahane ke lie vah chhota pad gaya. atah machhali punah satyavrat se boli- "rajan! yah samudr bhi mere rahane ke lie upayukt nahin hai. mere rahane ki vyavastha kahin aur kijie."

satyavrat ki prarthana

ab satyavrat vismit ho utha. usane aj tak aisi machhali kabhi nahin dekhi thi. vah vismay-bhare svar men bola- "meri buddhi ko vismay ke sagar men dubo dene vale ap kaun hain? apaka sharir jis gati se pratidin badhata hai, use drishti men rakhate hue bina kisi sndeh ke kaha ja sakata hai ki ap avashy paramatma hain. yadi yah bat saty hai, to kripa karake bataie ki apane matsy ka roop kyon dharan kiya hai?" sachamuch, vah bhagavan shrihari hi the.

shrihari ka adesh

matsy roopadhari shrihari ne uttar diya- "rajan! hayagriv namak daity ne vedon ko chura liya hai. jagath men charon or agyan aur adharm ka andhakar phaila hua hai. mainne hayagriv ko marane ke lie hi matsy ka roop dharan kiya hai. aj se sataven din prithvi pralay ke chakr men phir jaegi. samudr umad uthega. bhayanak vrishti hogi. sari prithvi pani men doob jaegi. jal ke atirikt kahin kuchh bhi drishtigochar nahin hoga. apake pas ek nav pahunchegi. ap sabhi anajon aur aushadhiyon ke bijon ko lekar sapt rishiyon ke sath nav par baith jaiega. main usi samay apako punah dikhaee padoonga aur apako atmatattv ka gyan pradan karoonga." satyavrat usi din se hari ka smaran karate hue pralay ki pratiksha karane lage. sataven din pralay ka drishy upasthit ho utha. samudr bhi umadakar apani simaon se bahar bahane laga. bhayanak vrishti hone lagi. thodi hi der men sari prithvi par jal hi jal ho gaya. snpoorn prithvi jal men sama gee. usi samay ek nav dikhaee padi. satyavrat sapt rishiyon ke sath us nav par baith ge. unhonne nav ke oopar snpoorn anajon aur aushadhiyon ke bij bhi bhar lie.

atmgyan

nav pralay ke sagar men tairane lagi. pralay ke us sagar men us nav ke atirikt kahin bhi kuchh bhi nahin dikhaee de raha tha. sahasa matsy roopi bhagavan pralay ke sagar men dikhaee pade. satyavrat aur sapt rishi gan matasy roopi bhagavan ki prarthana karane lage- "he prabho! ap hi srishti ke adi hain, ap hi palak hai aur ap hi rakshak hi hain. daya karake hamen apani sharan men lijie, hamari raksha kijie." satyavrat aur sapt rishiyon ki prarthana par matsy roopi bhagavan prasann ho uthe. unhonne apane vachan ke anusar satyavrat ko atmgyan pradan kiya. bataya- "sabhi praniyon men main hi nivas karata hoon. n koee oonch hai, n nich. sabhi prani ek saman hain. jagath nashvar hai. nashvar jagath men mere atirikt kahin kuchh bhi nahin hai. jo prani mujhe sabamen dekhata hua jivan vyatit karata hai, vah ant men mujhamen hi mil jata hai."

hayagriv ka vadh

matsy roopi bhagavan se atmgyan pakar satyavrat ka jivan dhany ho utha. ve jite ji hi jivan mukt ho ge. pralay ka prakop shant hone par matsy roopi bhagavan ne hayagriv ko marakar usase ved chhin lie. bhagavan ne brahmaji ko punah ved de die. is prakar bhagavan ne matsy roop dharan karake vedon ka uddhar to kiya hi, sath hi snsar ke praniyon ka bhi amit kalyan kiya. bhagavan isi prakar samay-samay par avatarit hote hain aur sajjanon tatha sadhuon ka kalyan karate hain.
