Kurma Jayanti

Kurma Jayanti (कूर्म जयन्ति / ಕೂರ್ಮ ಜಯಂತಿ)

ಕರ್ಮ ಹರಿಃ ಮಾಂ ನಿರಯಾತ ಅಶೇಷಾತ್

कूर्म हरिः मां निरयात अशेषात्

This also is an incarnation of the lord, where he took the form of a turtle and supported the sinking mandara (मन्दर / ಮಂದರ) mountain which was used as a churning tool. More deeply, he is supporting the entire universe compsoed of living and non-living beings. This is regarded as the second among the dashaavataaras, and the story appears in kurma puraana (कूर्म पुराण / ಕೂರ್ಮ ಪುರಾಣ). It is regarded highly in astrology and in correcting vaastu defects (वास्तु दोश / ವಾಸ್ತು ದೋಶ).
