King Uttanpad is unable to do his duty towards his subjects because his efforts to find his son Dhruv have failed. Lord Indras efforts to obstruct Dhruvs prayers also fail and Narad advises him to refrain. To achieve his goal, Dhruv stops breathing and the entire universe stands still. Eventually the supreme God Vishnu appears before Dhruv and is questioned by him.
Sitting in supreme God Vishnus lap is ecstasy for Dhruv, as he feels fully enlightened. Lord Vishnu gives him a discourse on \"Karma\" and \"Bhakti\". He instructs him to return to his people and attain salvation through Karma. Dhruv returns home and the reunion of his entire family completes his happiness. Goddess Laxmi requests that LOrd Vishnu allow mankind to have the benefit of his wisdom. \"Dharti\" introduces the story of a saint Kashyap who had three wives, Diti, Aditi and Dhanu.
Lord Brahma comes to meet Lord Vishnu. He is asked to pass on the Vedas (the words of the cosmic Lord himself to guide mankind to live a purposeful life) to mankind. Goddess Laxmi is pleased with the Lords concern for humanity however Haygrive - the Dhanav is upset and considers it to be unfair. He steals the Vedas when Brahma is away.
Vishnu tells Laxmi that Dharti is disintegrating and its law are collapsing. It was time for him to reincarnate himself to purify and save it from the decay that had set in. Once again Vishnu and Laxmi become one. Brahma informs Vishnu that Danav Haygrive has stolen the Vedas. Vishnu decides to punish him. One day a tiny fish swims into Manus hands and requests that Manu care for it and protect it from the bigger fish in the ocean. The fish is none other than Lord VIshnu. The Vedas disappear and Haygrive\'s men who were guarding them rush to inform Haygrive.
Haygrive and his men succeed in searching out the four Vedas. He wants to destroy them but Lord Vishnu rescues them and kills Haygrive. Manu, having gathered all the seeds of the plants and a pair of every bird, awaits Lord Vishnu. He realizes, he has forgotten to take the Saptvishis with him. They would be needed to educate mankind. Lord Shiv prepares to create a deluge to purify Dharti.
