Lord Matsya Cover
Lord Vishnu incarnates as Lord Matsya,at the end of each manvantara.

Once upon a time there was a great devotee of Lord Vishnu,King Satyavrata.He is a very great and vigorous devotee of Lord Vishnu.He used to perform all the vedic rituals and customs,and has done tapas.Once during his sandyavandanam,when he was at the river,a fish was into the hand of King Satyavrata.The fish was asking the king to save it from the larger fishes which r in the river.So the king took it in his kamandala,when he returned to his kingdom,the fish enlarged itself,asking the king to provide a more spacious one.So it began enlarging itself as big as an ocean,so the king has recognised that itself is the very great Lord,and prayed.So the Lord Matsya,has saved King Satyavrata for his great devotion from the flood which is going to destroy whole universe.King Satyavrata protected the seeds of all creatures on a boat for the next age,on the boat from the flood.

Lord Matsya, at a manvantara has saved vedas from a Demon and restored vedas to Lord Brahma.

Goddess Nzambi

Goddess Nzambi Image
"NZAMBI" IS THE EARTH MOTHER GODDESS WHO IS FOUND IN ALMOST EVERY CULTURE AMONG THE PEOPLE OF THE CONGO. IT WAS SHE WHO MADE THE EARTH AND SKY. SHE, WHO IS BOTH MALE AND FEMALE IN ONE. NZAMBI IS THE GIVER OF BOTH GREAT GENEROSITY AND OF PUNISHING FAMINE... DEPENDING ON WHETHER OR NOT SHE FEELS SOMEONE IS WORTHY. IT IS SAID THAT ONE OF HER FAVORITE TRICKS IS TO TAKE ON THE GUISE OF AN OLD BEGGAR WOMAN AND GO FROM HOUSE TO HOUSE, BEGGING FOR SOMETHING TO EAT. THOSE WHO GIVE HER THEIR SCRAPS ARE SAID TO RECEIVE A ONLY A SMALL TOKEN OF MONEY IN THE NEAR FUTURE, WHILE THOSE WHO BRING HER INSIDE AND PROVIDE HER A MEAL BY THE FIRE, ARE REWARDED WITH GREAT WEALTH. AND, THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO TURN HER AWAY ARE SENT NOTHING BUT FAMINE AND POVERTY; SHE TAKES AWAY WHAT THEY REFUSED TO SHARE.

NZAMBI'S LESSONS EMPHASIZE THE RULE OF HOSPITALITY, OF EXTENDING THE RESOURCES OF THE FAMILY CIRCLE UNTIL THE WORLD OUTSIDE. THE GIVER MUST NOT HAVE A SECRET AGENDA OR OBLIGATION, AND THE RECIPIENT MUST ACCEPT THE GIFT QUIETLY, WITHOUT CRITICISM OR OVERT SHOW. IN ONE OF HER LEGENDS, SHE IS APPROACHED BY A CRAB. HE HAS NO LIMBS AND ASKS HER FOR LEGS. SHE GRANTS HIM A PAIR, BUT HE WANTS ANOTHER...AND ANOTHER. FINALLY, AFTER HE SPORTS MORE LEGS THAN MOST OTHER CREATURES, HE ASKS FOR A HEAD AS WELL. NZAMBI AGREES, BUT SAYS THAT HE WILL RECEIVE HIS HEAD IN A FEW DAYS.

THE CRAB INVITES EVERYONE TO BE PRESENT AT THE RECEIVING OF HIS HEAD...WHICH HE HAS TURNED INTO A HUGE CEREMONY. WHEN NZAMBI ARRIVES, SHE FINDS HIM STRUTTING ARROGANTLY, MOVING SIDEWAYS INSTEAD OF FORWARDS SO AS TO SHOW OFF ALL OF HIS EXTRA LEGS. SHE BECOMES SO DISGUSTED WITH HIS ARROGANCE AND PRIDE, THAT SHE INFORMS HIM THAT SHE WILL NOT BE GIVING HIM A HEAD AFTER ALL; INSTEAD, SHE SENTENCES HIM TO SCUTTLE SIDEWAYS FOREVER. CRAB IS SO HUMILIATED THAT HE HIDES UNDER A ROCK...WHICH HAS WHAT HE HAS DONE EVER SINCE.

NZAMBI'S LESSON IS MORE THAN ONE OF DISAPPROVAL OF PRIDE; SHE IS ANGRY THAT CRAB HAS FLOUTED THE GREATEST TENET OF THE GIVER-RECIPIENT RELATIONSHIP...THE LION'S SHARE OF THE ATTENTION MUST GO TO THE GIVER.
