Dashavatara (IAST: Daśāvatāra) refers to the ten major incarnations of Vishnu, the Hindu God of universal preservation. Etymologically, dashavatara (Sanskrit: अवतार), derives from daśa, meaning 'ten' and avatāra, meaning 'descent'. The God Vishnu incarnates on Earth from time to time to eradicate the evil forces, to restore the Dharma and to liberate the worthy ones or devotees from cycle of births and deaths. The avatars in this list are also described as lila-avatars.
3. Varaha, the boar, from the Satya Yuga. He appeared to defeat Hiranyaksha, a demon who had taken the Earth, or Prithvi, and carried it to the bottom of what is described as the cosmic ocean in the story. The battle between Varaha and Hiranyaksha is believed to have lasted for a thousand years, which the former finally won. Varaha carried the Earth out of the ocean between his tusks and restored it to its place in the universe.
