Cosmic

The history reported says that Hiranyaaksha stole earth, hid in the cosmic ocean and the god fought with him for 2000 years and killed him and got back the earth.

Now, consider this possible scenario from a cosmic object sense, a rouge planet(oid) made its way into our solar system, which would take a long long time for it to arrive at vicinity of the earth (a new king has risen amongst our divinities, defeated them and became a new sovereign ruler of our devata world); once it came near earth, due to its larger body & gravity, it drew earth from it's orbit around sun to orbit around itself, and continued on it's path probably uninterrupted (taking earth into cosmic ocean). At this point, Sun drew this rouge planet with all of its moons including earth to orbit around itself, and the tidal forces of gravity between this rouge planet and Sun caused a binary orbit relationship between them instead of one becoming the moon of the other. This cosmic tussle continued for 2000 years, and finally Sun drew away earth & possibly certain other moons of this rouge planet free from the rouge planet and caused them to orbit around itself (i.e. around Sun again, i.e. God has defeated Hiranyaaksha and freed earth) and the rouge planet drew itself away from Sun such that it freed itself from Sun's gravity completely and exited our solar system. 

Cosmic collisions and rouge planet interruptions in our solar system are accepted theories by modern scientists, especially for explaining how Moon came into existence and how the Astroid Belt came into place. Most recently, rouge planet theory is also claimed to be the reason for existence of Sedna planetoid in our solar system which takes 12,000 earth years to orbit sun.

From a human history standpoint, what most Purohits believe is that there was a historical emperor who basically left dharma (morality & ethics), extracted from his kingdom & subjects as much as he can for his sole benefit, became arrogant & haughty declaring that there is no god and he should be worshiped instead by people, and after exhausting all resources of the land, ended up submerging the land under water as an act of punishment because, let's say, many people on the land started complaining to other emperors or to god. Varaha means wild boar. Wild boars are currently reputed by western scholars as having dredged land from under water to above water in our ancient past. Perhaps, wild boars came onto the shores of these inundated land back then, and slowly over 2000 years dregded this submerged land from water completely. And during the end of such time, this emperor perhaps driven mad already by living a life of solitude without land or subjects and by wild boar infestation was killed by a wild boar in his old age. 

Puranas don't report historical ancient events unless the one event explained more than one occurrence, on earthly plane and/or on cosmic plane.

Birth of Evil or Divine



Narakasura / Danavas /  Links / Playlist / Temple / Diwali  

Before dying, the Asura requested a boon that his death anniversary should be celebrated by all people on earth. This day is celebrated as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naraka_Chaturdashi(Diwali).

Divine
The deity mars has four arms. He has a hairy body. The small hairs of the body are red in colour. In his hands are mace and Trident and rest of the two hands are raised in the postures of bestowing fearlessness and blessings. He has a golden crown on his head and his vehicle is a lamb. He is attired in red coloured apparels and had red garlands in his neck.

In the 'Kalpa' of Varah' when Hiranyaksha, the elder brother of Hiranyakshipu had abducted the earth Lord Vishnu had taken incarnation as a boar and had rescued the earth by killing Hiranyaksha. Mother earth became very pleased after seeing lord Vishnu and had a desire to have him as her husband.
In his incarnation as a boar lord Vishnu's radiance was as dazzling illuminating and unbearable as crores of Suns. Lord Vishnu transformed his appearance into his enchanting form to fulfill the wish of the presiding deity of the earth and lived with earth for one year in aloofness. This way the birth of Mars took place (Brahmavaivarta Puran 2/8/29 to 43). 

Note : Evil is Not Completely Evil and Divine is not Completely Divine 

It Depends on 
Time
Place 
Circumstance

invisible

You rascal, You have been nourished by our enemies to kill us, and You have killed some demons by remaining invisible. O fool, Your power is only mystic, so today I shall enliven my kinsmen by killing You.

Purport: 

The demon used the word abhavāya, which means “for killing.” Śrīdhara Svāmī comments that this “killing” means liberating, or, in other words, killing the process of continued birth and death. 

The Lord kills the process of 
  1. birth and 
  2. death and keeps Himself invisible. 
The activities of the Lord’s internal potency are inconceivable, but by a slight exhibition of this potency, the Lord, by His grace, can deliver one from nescience. Śucaḥ means “miseries”; the miseries of material existence can be extinguished by the Lord by His internal potency, yoga-māyā.

In the Upaniṣads (Śvetāśvatara Upaniṣad 6.8) it is stated, parāsya śaktir vividhaiva śrūyate. The Lord is invisible to the eyes of the common man, but His energies act in various ways. When demons are in adversity, they think that God is hiding Himself and is working by His mystic potency. They think that if they can find God they can kill Him just by seeing Him. Hiraṇyākṣa thought that way, and he challenged the Lord: “You have done tremendous harm to our community, taking the part of the demigods, and You have killed our kinsmen in so many ways, always keeping Yourself hidden. Now I see You face to face, and I am not going to let You go. I shall kill You and save my kinsmen from Your mystic misdeeds.”

Not only are demons always anxious to kill God with words and philosophy, but they think that if one is materially powerful he can kill God with materially fatal weapons. Demons like Kaṁsa, Rāvaṇa and Hiraṇyakaśipu thought themselves powerful enough to kill even God. Demons cannot understand that God, by His multifarious potencies, can work so wonderfully that He can be present everywhere and still remain in His eternal abode, Goloka Vṛndāvana.

Worship by Insult

The demon addressed the Lord: O best of the demigods, dressed in the form of a boar, just hear me. This earth is entrusted to us, the inhabitants of the lower regions, and You cannot take it from my presence and not be hurt by me.

Purport: 

Śrīdhara Svāmī, commenting on this verse, states that although the demon wanted to deride the Personality of Godhead in the form of a boar, actually he worshiped Him in several words. 

For example, he addressed Him as 
  1. vana-gocaraḥ, which means “one who is a resident of the forest,” 
  2. but another meaning of vana-gocaraḥ is “one who lies on the water.” 
Viṣṇu lies on the water, so the Supreme Personality of Godhead can be properly addressed in this way.

The demon also addressed Him as mṛgaḥ, indicating, unintentionally, that the Supreme Personality is sought after by 
  1. great sages, 
  2. saintly persons and 
  3. transcendentalists. 
He also addressed Him as ajña. Śrīdhara Svāmī says that jña means “knowledge,” and there is no knowledge which is unknown to the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Indirectly, therefore, the demon said that Viṣṇu knows everything.

The demon addressed Him as surādhama. Sura means “the demigods,” and adhama means “Lord of all there is.” He is Lord of all the demigods; therefore He is the best of all demigods, or God. 

When the demon used the phrase “in my presence,” the implied meaning was, “In spite of my presence, You are completely able to take away the earth.” Na svasti yāsyasi: “Unless You kindly take this earth from our custody, there can be no good fortune for us.”
