To churn the sea into nectar, a giant snake was used as a rope and Mount Mandara was used as a rod. When the mountain began to sink, they called upon Lord Vishnu to help them. He incarnated as a turtle and supported the mountain on his back, so that the nectar of immortality could manifest ( Amrit Manthan ) by the Gods and demons churning the sea. After the churning , the Turtle remains in place , and on his back , now stand 4 elephants , that support the Planet. In fact , this is believed by many cultures.
