वराह, Varāha, "boar" is the avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu, in the form of a boar. Varaha is also the name of the current cosmic era.
"...the last Kalpa was the Padma, or that of the Golden Lotus; the present one being Varaha (the "boar" incarnation, or Avatar)... The Varaha, however, is no simple boar, and seems to have meant at first some antediluvian lacustrine animal "delighting to sport in water." (Vayu Purana.)" - H.P. Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine
