God, avatar and divine stories -1
Hello friends .... I have come up with an interesting topic today. You must have understood from the title of the article… its series will also run. You must read all the articles of its labels. In the beginning it is possible to have some difficulty in understanding the topic, so the number of articles of this series will come and all your doubts will definitely solve it. As the subject of the article, I will also put some stories in it from time to time. Lord Vishnu and Shri Krishna will be prominent in my entire article. So let's go to today's article
What is avatar ??Avatar does not mean normal birth. All cosmic actions of avatar like birth-deeds-activity are divine.
In the Gita, Shri Bhagavan has resolved all the curiosities regarding the incarnation very clearly and has said, "Though I am an unborn-bornless, undefined soul-unmanifest knowledge power-oriented and God-regulating whole creature elements from Brahma; even then, my trigunatmika Vaishnavi maya, under whose control the whole world dwells and by which a man who is fascinated does not know himself as Vasudev's form, by keeping this nature power in own control , only by reason of own's leela I become like born as a body. I do not actually take birth like an ordinary person. Explaining the purpose of the incarnation, Lord Krishna himself says that whenever there is loss of dharma and the rise of unrighteousness, then I create my form with my maya (illusion).
Therefore, it is clear that God appears in every age for the purpose of protecting the saint, protecting of dharma, spreading the light of policy and knowledge and for the destruction of the wicked and sinners. If we talk about the general meaning, then avatar in general means descending, or rising, or beginning, the appearance of form, taking birth, etc. The meaning of avatar is used only in the sense of descending or descending from a higher place. Avatars are not only for the destruction of the wicked and for the protection of saints, but also for the purpose of public education.
Divine power exists every particle to particle . But its feels can be accepted only by pure heart. In all living creatures like Udbhij, Svedaj, Andaj and Jarayus, only part of the same God exists. That is why, every creature in the world should have equal vision. This lesson is also the cornerstone of universal brotherhood, which is the specialty of our Sanatana Dharma. Udbhij -One degree exists in the vegetation etc., two degrees in the Svedjas, three degrees in the Andaja and four degrees in the Jarayujas. On the strength of their practice and self-control, humans can wear up to five to eight degrees of divine consciousness.
Similar mental power and divine body,full of all divine power are said to be avatari purush. The bodies which absorb in the eight to fifteen arts which have the status of Chidansha are called ansha avatar, and then purn avatar. Those who are accomplished by sixteen arts are called paripurna avatars. Paripurna avatars are considered omniscient. Their bodies are all comprehensive, omniscient, all virtuous and divine. Therefore, they cannot be called creatures; Because these are Brahm forms. When these parts are weakened, a human being is called alpagya jeeva (superficial being). In the full incarnation and perfect incarnation, it is also considered inpentritable from a spiritual-philosophical point of view.
What is Ansha Avatar ??In these divine images, some differences in art, degree , natural form (charge) etc. have also been considered. Human beings are also considered as part of God. Sometimes, if such specificity is shown in the work of some humans, then they are considered excellent.
We can call these distinct and accumulated qualities the divine part. Divine attributes accumulated in the divine qualities of various deities exist. Just like Indra, Agni, Varuna, Som, Vayu, Surya etc. have also been called ansha avatar. Lakshmi is also called ansha avatar .
The 35th chapter of the prakruti khanda of Brahma Vaivarta Purana states that Lakshmi was born from the left part of Radha and the quadrilateral Vishnu from Shri Krishna's left part. In the Adhyatma Ramayana (220.127.116.11), there is also a description of God appearing in different parts of his body. And also Goddess Lakshmi's birth in the form of Sita and all the great deities as part of the mighty vanaras is an important role of helping the God. In the Vishnu Purana, Parashurama, who killed Kartaviryaarjuna, is considered an ansha avatar. In the Mahabharata, Arjuna is called Indra and Karna is called the Sun's parts. Indra, Pawan, Yama, Surya, Agni, Varuna, Chandra and Kubera - The king was created with the constant part of these eight. Hence, it leads to the conclusion that king is considered as a Gods representative. In the Kenopanishad (2.1) it is said that in the most mysterious form, as part of the ultimate brahm, Jeevatma, which is the mind, intellect, and the form of life, is also a part of Brahm.
What is Kalaavtar of God ??According to the texts of Sanatan Dharma, various meanings of art have been told. Such as time arts, zodiac arts, experimental arts, music-dance arts, moon arts etc. But the meaning of art is different in terms of avatar. In the Prashnopanishad (6.2), a description of a Purush of sixteen arts is found- That is, the sixteen arts produced a huge body as a whole world, they are called Purusha. Thats purusha is seated in our conscience. Therefore, the desire to find him within itself should be desired. The Chandogyopanishad (6.7.1) also mentions the purusha with sixteen arts. In the Brihadaranyakopanishad (1.5.14), Prajapati in the form of Samvatsara is said to have sixteen arts.
The Prashnopanishad (6.6) states that the way all those sticks are in the wheel of a chariot enter the center of the wheel, which is called the navel, they cannot stand without that navel. The same kind of souls etc. whose sixteen arts are dependent, which originate from and which merge, should be known as God. In this way, the Purusha who is expressed with the sixteen arts, is none other than Brahm form Maha Vishnu, an icon of the sixteen arts.
What is Vibhuti ??The common meaning of Vibhuti is the very human and divine powers, which also include the Ashta Siddhis. By the way, power, prestige, fame etc. - These are counted in the Vibhutis.
In the Gita (10.7), Lord Shri Krishna himself says that one who knows the element of my Vibhuti (expansion) and Yoga (method of expanding) - is undoubtedly attained by steady Karmayog. No earthly person is capable of discussing the greatness of Bhagavad-Vibhutis. Whatever matter is present in this world, and contains Sri and Lakshmi, only the position of the glorious portion of God should be considered. There is a very interesting description of Bhagavad-Vibhutis in the 10th chapter of the Gita; In which the presence of divine power is shown in all the best vibhutis and substances like Vishnu, Surya, Moon, Indra, Samveda etc.
What is the Aveshaavatar of god ??Avesha avatar of God have also taken place. Avesha means to enter or remain in the jurisdiction of one power. In the embodiment of incarnation, the divine authority asserts its powers in a particular person or object. In the Garga Samhita (1.21), it is said about the avesha avatar by Shri Narada that Lord Vishnu, who is self embodied in any persons conscience and gets separated after performing the intended work, should know such avatar as avesh avatar. Devotees also sometimes get charged due to their immense devotion, at that time they neither suffer hunger nor thirst. Despite physical pain, it is not perceived. At this time, extraordinary work is also done by them. If we look at the life cycle of Chaitanya Maha prabhu, then many such examples are found in his life. In avatars, the Anshansha(degree of degree), Ansha(degree), kala( art),Purna( complete) and Paripurna(perfection) types are also mentioned. Parshuram etc. has also been placed in the category of avesha avatar by some texts. Apart from these, Dattatreya, Kapil, Vyasa, etc. are also mentioned in our Sanatan texts as the avesha avatar of god.
What is Purnaavtar of god ??The Garga Samhita clearly states that where the Chaturvyuh forms of God appears together, the effect of the complete incarnation is reflected, such as Rama, Lakshmana, Bharata, Shatrughna; Vasudeva, Sankarshan, Pradyumna and Aniruddha. Through his divine powers, strength, might, glory, etc., they destroyed the demons and established the dharma kingdom by giving shelter to the saints.
The importance of Rama and Krishna is particularly mentioned in Vaishnava literature. Vishnu is the main Leelanayak(Hero) in the context of a purna avatar, but in the form of Rama and Krishna, he has performed many works in the same way as ansha avatar. Thus the ansha avatar has a unique relationship with the purna avatar. The top scripture of Vaishnava literature, Ahirbudhnya Samhita (2.56), states that Parabrahma is devoid of Prakrit qualities and becomes Nirguna and when completed by these six qualities (Gyaan, Shakti, Aishwarya, Bal, Virya, Tej) Are in Saguna form. In these six qualities , Gyaan is only the form of Vasudeva, the remaining shakti etc., are other attributes of gyaan (Vasudev). There is gyaan and bal in Shankarshan, aishwarya and virya in Pradhumn and shakti and tej in anirudhra like qualities are mainly appeared. The work of Shankarshan is the creation of the world, the work of Pradyumna is to teach the action according to the path and the work of the Anirudha is to give the result of the action i.e. to teach the secret of salvation. Thus the above mentioned vyuha with Vasudeva is called Chaturvyuha. Chaturvuh Vasudev is the main source of this origin, from that Shankarshana that that is jeeva, Shankarshana to Pradhyumna that is mind, and Anirudha that is mind to ego is generate There are also found in our Sanatan literature about vyuahas with many parables. In the Rama's vyuha , Lakshmana is considered as Sankarshan, Shatrughna as Pradyumna and Bharata as Aniruddha and Rama himself is situated as Vasudeva. In the Gopalottartapanopanishad, the Lord Himself has said that the devout people with perfect intellect worship me in all the four forms (chatuvryuh). In Avatar distinctions, vyuha's form is certainly not different from avatarism, but the variation in the forms and purposes of avatar is definitely reflected. There is Vasudeva in the center of the vyuh(array), where the special power reveals the uniqueness of Anirudh etc. There is a special discussion of vyuhnism in Pancharatra literature and it is said that all the powers of Brahm are visible in Braahm form, so it is useless to see them separately.
What is paripurnaavtar of God ??Shri Krishna is recognized as the paripurna avtar (perfect incarnation) of God. Vasudev Krishna has been called the incarnation of Narayana or Vishnu in the Mahabharata . Again in the Srimad Bhagavata it is called 'Krishnastu Bhagwan Swayam'. In incarnations, whether they are ten avatars or 24 incarnations, it is a universally accepted principle that Shri Vishnu incarnates in his art, part, fraction, charge, complete etc. forms.
These are the divine powers of the Lord of all the Universe, who descend for Leela for the welfare of the world. God is the regulator of all beings in the whole world. The secret of their leela and their resolutions, the creature lying in maya cannot be known by any means. It is from Bhagavatkripa (kindness of god) that the creature gets to know a little bit about them. God is irrational. There is also a period of times, that is, Mahakal. In the Gita, Lord Krishna himself has said to Arjuna, "Ahameva Akshayah Kaal", that is, I am the Akshaya Kaal that never perishes. Each of his leela is supernatural. God is not to the subject of mind and speech, yet poets, devotees and lovers as much have praised him on own's eligibility . The Vedas have described the qualities and leelas of God by calling them 'Neti-neti'.
In this world, God creates the world in a Brahma form, then preserve it in the form of Vishnu and finally destroys it Rudra form. There is a slight description of his destructive form here, that is, Kaal. God has many qualities of complete opulence, dharma, fame, Shri, knowledge and disinterest. God is the abode of all virtues.
God has created this entire world for his leelas. For them, creation, preserve and destruction - all three types of leelas are the same. Just as the children make a toy of clay, play with it and destroy it in the end, similarly, these three leelas of God are there. His every leela is auspicious due to being auspicious. In his destructive leela, welfare is secretly filled, because creation without destruction is not possible. In the Shrimad Bhagavad Gita, Lord Shri Krishna appeared to his beloved friend Arjuna in his viraat kaal swaroop(vast form) and said, "Look, I am the great destroyer of the world." At this time I have tended to destroy these peoples . Hence the warriors who are in the army of the counterparties. All these will not remain without you, that is, even if you do not fight, they will be destroyed. God reduced the problem of the earth only through the destroyer form. God is the true resolution. The success of Jiva's resolve is depands only on the will of God. After the war of Mahabharata, the problem of the earth had become light and everyone thought the same, but God thought that although the problems of the earth has come down in the eyes of the people, but in my view, the problems of the earth has not completely lightened yet. Because these Yaduvanshis are still alive in pride. They are my dependents. Therefore, no one can defeat them. Now I have to destroy them in some way. Thinking this, God split the Yaduvanshis on the pretext of cursing Brahmins and dedicated them to Kaal. The Lord has said in the Srimad Bhagwat, "I am the speed in dynamic situations, I am the Kaal in those who subordinate me, I am their original nature in virtues and I am the natural quality of all the quality things". God is also base of the kaal ie Mahakaal. There is no one like God, then who can exceed them? God himself is the prakruiti,purusha and there are kaal for the combination- disconnection of both. In Sri Ramcharitmanas, Malyavant warns the demon king Ravana and gives him a sense of the Lord's kaal form. Similarly, along with other forms of God, the description of his Kaal form comes at many places in all the scriptures, Puranas, Mahabharata and Ramcharitmanas. If humans keeps on remembering the kaal form of God, they can avoid many evils and they can definitely be benefitted.
Kansa recollected this form of God and attained
God. He used to chant the God around the clock - while sitting, eating, drinking, sleeping and working. He remembered God not with love, but with hatred, even then he got salvation .
The speed of kaal is intense. Jeeva does not know the kaal. Kaal is unborn and immortal. Kaal is everyone's time period. Everyone dies in the same period of kaal. Kaal decide to everyone's death.
We should always be afraid of the kaal form snake, because the kaal form snake can sting at any time. We can also die due to his bite. After the death, no treatment will be possible. That is why we should remember God in our conscious state so that we can get rid of the kaal form snake.
