Matsya the Avatar of the Lord in the form of a fish that twice appears on the earth. First, the Lord appears as Matsya at the beginning of the Svayambhuva manvantara to return the Vedas to Brahma after they were stolen during his sleep by the demon Hayagriva. Second, the Lord appears as Matsya at the end of the Chaksusa manvantara to protect and enlighten King Satyavrat, whom He then establishes as the Manu of the ensuing manvantara.
