Vishnu appeared in the form of Kurma or tortoise in the first age or Satya Yuga to recover some things of great value which had been lost in the deluge. In this form of tortoise, he placed himself at the bottom of the sea of milk and made his back the base or pivot of the mountain Mandara. The gods and demons twisted the great serpent Vasuki round the mountain and each took an end of the snake as a rope.The churning of the ocean continued until they recovered the desired lost objects - the chief among them was amrita or the water of life.
