1) In Varaha charitram, it is said that earth (bhuloka) was hidden under an ocean. Which ocean is it because if it was one of our earthly oceans like Pacific, Atlantic etc, since that is also a part of Earth how can Earth be submerged into it. How do we understand this.

2) When Earth was submerged did all the inhabitants also die?

Thank you.

Since Varaha avatara in just after creation of universe, the ocean then refers to the mighty Water that was created initially. Nothing happened to the inhabitants (they were too few ) as it was beginning of creation.
