Lord Vishnu took his second incarnation as Koorma in Satya Yuga to help Devas and Asuras during Samudra Manthana. The Maha Mandhara Parvata had to be used to churn out Amritha- the nectar of immortality from the ocean. It was difficult to hold Mandhara Mountain in place while churning and this called for a solid base. Lord Vishnu incarnated as a giant turtle and lent his back to hold up the mountain and save Earth from destruction. It is said that Lord Vishnu himself narrated the Kurma Purana to Sage Narada and hence is one of the major Eighteen Puranas. We also learn about this avatar of Mahavishnu fromthe Bhagavad Purana, the Agni Purana and the Ramayana.
