Shree Varaha Purana - Hindi

Varaha Purana is a Hindu religious text and is considered as one of the major eighteen Puranas. The work owes its title to the fact that it is related to the goddess Earth (Prthivi) by Lord Vishnu in his third incarnation as a wild boar (Varaha avatar). It tells the tale of the rescuing of the earth from Rasatal by the Varaha avatar of Lord Vishnu. Though it contains brief allusions to the creation, the genealogies, etc., it is not a Purana in the ancient sense of the word, but rather a manual of prayers and rules for the Vishnu worshippers.
