Matsya Jayanthi – Birthday of Lord Vishnu’s Matsya Incarnation
Matsya Jayanthi 2009
Matsya Avatar is the first incarnation of Lord Sri Maha Vishnu. To warn the world about the Mahapralaya (deluge), Lord Sri Narayana incarnated in fish form. Matsya Avatar holds a significance to be a prototype for the next nine incarnations of Lord Vishnu that follow after that.
In 2009, Matsya Jayanthi is celebrated on March 29, Sunday.
In Hindu Mythology, the fish manifestation of Lord Narayana, the Matsya Avatar, does not have importance in terms of worship, rituals, customs and traditions.
Even the serial order of Lord Vishnu’s ten incarnations proves the Law of Evolution. We can also learn how the creation developed since ages from the concept of Lord Narayana’s ten incarnations.
