Varaha avatara in action or a Mainaka look-alike rising?

An awesome pictorial tale of Varaha avatara in action!!!
Or is this how the Mainaka rose when Hanuman crossed the seas?

Thought of sharing this with readers.....


Can you imagine the thrill of seeing a new island being created ,
seemingly from nowhere?

Mother Nature in all her amazing spleandour!!!
An awesome sight to behold.



In
November 2006, the yacht 'Maiken' was traveling in the South Pacific when they came across a weid sight..





... It was sand in the water, and the sand was floating ON TOP of the waves..






This is not a beach, it is floating on the water.




















The trail left by the yacht..through the sand

















And, while they were watching...

And then this was spotted...






Ash and steam rising from the ocean...


















A brand new island formed...







plume of black ash..

Awesome!

ஆழப் பெரும் புனல் தன்னுள் அழுந்திய நில மடந்தை
பெரு மேரு திருக்குளம்பில் கணகணப்ப
மண்ணெல்லாம் இடந்து, இலகுபுவி மடந்தை தன்னைப் புல்கியாவாறே...
என்று ஆழ்வார் பாசுரங்களில் வரும் காட்சியை Motion Capture செஞ்சா மாதிரியே இருக்கு படங்கள் அத்தனையும்! :)

True Mr KRS.

This also reinforces my contention that Sethu stretch is volcanism-prone area. It looks like a controlled volcanism. I have written many posts on this. The thorium deposits in that area must be analyzed by scientists for a probable conenction with volcanism.
