Lord Krishna was rich in wonderful and supernatural personalityShri Krishna gave a new philosophy to mankind. Taught the way of living. His life-stories are full of miracles, but he is more closer to us than other. He is God but even before that, he is a successful, talented and divine human being.
The personality of Lord Shri Krishna is not only for Indian history, but also for world history, it is a supernatural and wonderful personality and will always be. He is a unique hero of our culture. A personality that cannot be compared to any avatar nor to any great man in the world. In every passage of his life, in every event there is a contradiction which is not generally understood. This is the unique character of his life and this is also his unique life philosophy. The invaluable teaching he gave through his beautiful and seductive leelas and his holiness's teachings from inner and outer vision cannot come within the limits of the imaginative power of any speech or writing and the imagination of the mind, that is his singularity. Gyani-dhyani(schloar-sage) are defeated by searching Krishna, who do not meet in Brahm, nor in Puranas nor in the Vedas, he meet while pressing the feet of Radharani in any place of Brajbhumi- It is the peculiarity of the character of Shri Krishna that even after being unborn, he is born on earth. Even he is mritunjaya, but he accept death. Even is supreme power but born in the prison of Kansa.
The personality and work of Shri Krishna is multi-faceted and multicolored, that is, intelligence, tact, warfare, charm, love, gravity, happiness, sorrow and how many characteristics and traits are included in himself. For a devotee, Lord Krishna is not only a god but also a guru who teaches the art of living life. He attained the status of a great hero in Indian culture by the diverse characteristics of his personality. On the one hand, he was a ideal scholar of politics and on the other, a great scholar of philosophy. He introduced the syncretic religion of knowledge-action-devotion while also leading in the religious world. On the basis of his abilities, he was a man of yugas, who later became accepted as an ideal of young generation . We remember him as a great revolutionary hero. He was a philosopher, thinker, messenger of Karma and Sankhya Yoga through the Gita, and the policy director of the Mahabharata war, but for the simple-minded Brajvasi, he was the rascha rachaiya, the Makhan chor, the naughty Kanhaiya who broke the gopis's pitcher . This is the expression in the Gita - O Arjuna! Those devotee worship me in which feeling in same way I also worship them. Shri Krishna's character is very divine. Everyone is attract towards him. Who attracts everyone, paves the way for devotion, removes the sins of devotees, he is Shri Krishna. He is an ideal character who while diagnosing Arjuna's mental anguish then he is a psychologist, when he killed Kansa then known as dharmaavatar. An ideal politician countering selfish politics, best musician in the form of Vishwa Mohini Bansi Bajaiah, Premavatar in front of Brijwasi . An ideal friend in front of Sudama. In the form of Sudarshan chakradhaari is a warrior and a pioneer of social revolution . Who do not overlap the sky of Dwapar with their divine powers, but remain in the background of mythological events like a relieved feeling. Actually, Krishna has everything that is in human and not in human! They are complete, bright, Brahman, knowledge. Due to this immortal knowledge, many such rules and formulas have been propounded on the basis of their life themes and Gita, which are also applicable in Kali Yuga. In this age full of deceit and deceit, how should we behave according to religion, what kind of behavior, we should see such benefits, not harming others, this way. On the occasion of Janmashtami, we should adopt his teachings and biographies in our lives. Shri Krishna gave a new philosophy to mankind. Taught the way of living. Their life-stories are full of miracles, but he is more closer to us than than other. He is God but even before that, he is a successful, talented and divine human being. Despite being God, they seem the most human.
That is why Sri Krishna is considered a symbol of human emotions, desires and arts. It seems that Shri Krishna came as the leader of life philosophy. His entire journey from start to end is the inspiration of Purushartha. He opened his eyes to the society when the power of autocracy became poison for human beings.
Because no one could challenge the power, the newborn baby were killed. Such is the story of the birth of Shri Krishna himself. They were able to survive, so they were removed from the parents' eyes as soon as he was born. In the society apprehensive by the fear of that time, child Krishna starting his life of sensation, struggle, reaction and protest.
The war of Mahabharata was the climax of the continuous battle which was started by Sri Krishna at birth. Society of every era poses some questions before us. Shri Krishna answered the same questions and became Taranhar. Even today, almost the same questions stand before us. In such a situation, it is important to focus on the exemplary side of Shri Krishna's dazzling chanting side so that the society can be removed from the cycle of this complexity. His entire personality and curiosity has become an indelible article of religious history. His sense of balance and harmony made him a favorite of illiterate milkman, people living in the lower strata of society, and disabled victims of neglect.
Sri Krishna birth anniversary is an example of social equality. He was born in the city and spent his childhood playing in the village. Thus his character connects the culture of the village and the city, connects the poor with the rich, Gwal baal to be the Gita preacher, killing the evil Kansa and returning his kingdom to Maharaj Ugrasena . Despite of he belong to rich family used to go the poor Gwal Bal and Gopis home and eating Makhan etc. are examples of being a successful national hero. Like an ordinary human Krishna, any person can become a nationalist by touching every position of society and being loved by all. The heroic demons of kansa are slaughtered at the moment by Krishna but he gets lost in the game by Gwal baal. This is an example of the founding of divine love. Lord Krishna 's reasons for social harmony and patriotism are the inspiring criteria.
Shrikrishna is the only person in the vast sky of spirituality who does not appear serious nor seem indifferent even after going to the ultimate depths and heights of dharma, but is a person full of biographical power. Sri Krishna's character has dance, song, love, dedication, humor, rasa, and the mindset to accept war as well, if needed.
The Great War is the symbol of the defense of religion and truth. There is no other person who created history in the world with a flute in one hand and Sudarshan Chakra in the other hand. There is no prohibition in the character of Shri Krishna, there is a sense of accepting every moment of life, every substance, every event with totality. If they love, they are completely immersed in it, if they are friends, then they are also fully loyal, and when they accept war, then there is complete acceptance in that too.
On Janmashtami, the birth anniversary of Sri Krishna, we should strive for the rise of humanity by making inspiration simple from him and making life simple and easy.

Devaki was humble and calm, but Kansa was evil. When he grew up, he put his father in prison, and took over the throne of the king himself, while his sister was married to King 'Vasudev'. One day, Kansa heard akashvaani - One day your sister's eighth son will grow up and kill you. Due to this, the evil Kansa was shaken to the ground and wanted to kill his sister. But Vasudeva urges to Kansa for Devaki to keep him alive and Kansa agrees to kill Devaki's eighth son. Kansa imprisoned his own sister and her husband, the eighth child of the couple was Lord Krishna who survived all attempts by Kansa to kill him, and eventually defeated his evil maternaluncle.

2. Birth of Lord KrishnaDevaki and Vasudev were imprisoned by their brother Kansa. Every time Devaki gave birth to a child, Kansa himself came and killed the child with his own hands. Devaki's seventh son was miscarried, but was mysteriously transferred to the womb of queen Rohini, who came to the world as Krishna's brother - Balarama. His eightth son was born inside the prison at midnight, it was Lord Krishna and that special day is celebrated as Janmashtami.

3. How Vasudeva saved Krishna's lifeKrishna was born as Vishnu and his parents prayed that he be transformed into an ordinary child, so that they could hide him from Kansa. Prabhu advised his father to take him to Vrindavan and changed with a newborn girl. Then, magically the prison guard fell asleep and all the locks and chains opened automatically. Vasudev left for Vrindavan with little Krishna. When he reached the banks of the river Yamuna, he saw that the river was flooded. Keeping the little Krishna on his head, as Vasudeva tried
to cross the river and the water touched Krishna's toe. The water of the river mysteriously receded, and Vasudeva could complete his journey. He then reached Yashoda's house, changed the children and returned back to the prison with the girl. Devaki and Vasudev hoped that Kansa would leave the girl as the prophecy predicted that a boy would kill Kansa, but Kansa did not care. He snatches the child from their hands and throws him on a stone. But the girl turned into goddess Durga and they told Kansa that Krishna was alive and would punish him for his evil deeds.
Lesson -Sometimes the powers are beyond one's own control. If you only have bad intentions, you will never succeed.

The demon assumed the form of a beautiful woman and reached the room where Krishna was. She had poison on her breasts and requested to be fed to Krishna. Krishna's mother was not aware of her true intentions and allowed to Putna breast feeding Krishna . But Krishna closed his eyes and sucked the life of the demon from which she died. The poison did nothing to Krishna but due to the good deeds of feeding Krishna, the soul of the Putna was liberated.
Lesson -Never should anyone be hurt intentionally, because you may have to suffer for it.

Once, when Yashoda was not around, Krishna called his friends. They climbed on top of each other and somehow managed to reach the pot of butter. Everyone together took down a pot full of butter and ate the butter together with great fun. But unfortunately, he does not realize that Yashoda has returned.

He shook his head, pointing to no , Yashoda asked Krishna to open his mouth but he was so scared that he refused to open his mouth. But when his mother looked at him angrily, he opened his mouth.
When Yashoda looked inside the mouth, instead of clay, she saw the whole universe inside Krishna's mouth. Stars, skies, mountains, oceans everything. She was surprised and Krishna kept smiling. Then Yashoda realized that he is not an ordinary child but God himself.

Story of the birth of Lord Parashuram
The story of the birth of Lord Parashurama is very interesting which is described in the Vishnu Purana, in fact the story of the birth of Parashurama starts from the time of his grandfather.
Parshuramji's grandfather name was Maharishi Richik, who was of a very angry nature, as well as his age was old. But he had not married yet. Once the sage came to mind that he too should get married, he reached King Gadhi and asked his daughter for him. The king, with a desire to not give a girl to a very angry and old Brahmin, demand the Maharishi to give 100 black horses like stunning the moon and moving like the air, which was impossible. But Maharishi Hrichik gave 100 horses from Varuna to King Gadhi in the same way as they were born from Ashwathirtha, now even though the king did not want to marry his daughter to Maharishi Richik. But he had to get his girl married to Maharishi Hrichik. After some time of marriage, the sage felt that the marriage had taken a long time. Now there should be a child . Therefore, he wished for the child and prepared a Yagya Kheer for his wife Satyavati. And another Yagya Kheer for the birth of a Kshatriya superior son for the mother of Satyavati . And both taking yagya kheer in hand and went to Satyavati and said to make proper use of it. Having said that, he went to forest.
Now Satyavati went to her mother with Kheer and narrated the whole story as told by Maharishi Ritchik. Hearing this, Satyavati's mother said "Daughter", everyone wants to make his own son quality and powerful. Anybody has no special interest in wife's brother, so your husband must have thought like this. And he has made your Yagya Kheer more effective so that your son is the best of all, so you should eat my Kheer and I will eat your Kheer. Because my son has to follow the entire earth and your Brahmin son would not have to take forceful , semen and property, on hearing such a thing, Satyavati was very sad and despite not wanting, she gave her kheer to her mother and she ate mother's kheer herself.
After a while, when Maharishi Richik returned from forest and saw Satyavati, he was angry and said what kind of work did you do. Because of which your body looks so terrible. Of course, you have eaten kheer prepared for your mother. Which is not right because in it I had included all my enjoyment, wealth of valor and strength, and implanted ,peace and wisdom in your kheer. By using their opposite, your will produce terrible weapon's holder a son with the same attitude as the Kshatriya , and your mother will produce a son with Brahmanic conduct. On hearing this, Satyavati Maharishi fell on Richik's feet and apologized. The things that happened between her and her mother. Narrated all the story.
And said, O God, I have done such a thing, because of ignorance, so please be happy and take some measures so that my son does not have such a nature even if my grandson (grandson) is of that nature. Hearing this, Maharishi was very surprised and said, O Satyavati, you have no fault in this but curse will have to be suffered even if our grandson has to suffer. Therefore, our son will be of Brahmin nature but grandson Kshatriya nature. So after some time Jamadagni was born from Satyavati and Vishwamitra from her mother. And here Satyavati became a Kaushiki river after giving birth to a child. Jamadagni married Ikshvaku dynasty king Renu's daughter. And from Jamadagni, Lord Parshuram, who destroyed the entire Kshatriyas, was born. Which was the avatar of Lord Narayana. Those who were Brahmins from birth and Kshatriyas from Karma.

Why Lord Vishnu killed his own son ??
This story is mentioned in the Vishnupurana. Lord Vishnu killed his own son, but due to what such circumstances, he had to do this. To know this, this story is presented ........According to the story, Shri Hari Vishnu took avatar of Shri Krishna on earth and killed Kansha and after then started living in Dwarikapuri. So one day Indra came to Sri Krishna riding on his Airavat elephant. And bowed to Lord Krishna and said, "O Madhusudan, even though you are in human form, you are the lord of all the gods, you have put an end to all our trouble. All asuras who used to trouble the sages, they are killed by you.
But O Sri Krishna, the son of Prithvi Narakasura who is the king of pragjyotispur. He has forcibly kept the daughters of gods, munis, demons, kings, etc. in his jail. This monster has also snached Varuna's raining Kshatra and Mandanchal's peak called Maniparvat. O Krishna he has also taken two divine earring of my mother Aditi and now wants to take this Airavat elephant also. Therefore, O Krishna, I have told you all my problems, now you should do as you feel appropriate.
On hearing such words of Indra, Devakinandan smiled and got up from his seat, holding Indra's hand, and as soon as he remembered Garuda, himself after sitting Satyabhama on Garuda and left for Pragjyotishpur. And here Indra too went to heaven riding on his Airavat elephant. Arriving here in Pragjyotishpur, Sri Krishna sees that up to a hundred yojan of earth around Pragjyotishpur, the knife-like edge made by the Mur monster is surrounded by very sharp nets.
Then Lord Krishna cut those nets from his Sudarshan Chakra. Seeing this, the Mur demon ran to fight with Shri Krishna, then Krishna killed Mur also with Sudarshan Chakra. Seeing Mur dead, even Mur's sons started fighting with Shri Krishna. But Shri Krishna also killed them with the Sudarshan Chakra. In this way, lord Krishna killed the hundred sons of Mur and the demon named Panchajan and quickly entered Pragjyotishpur.
Where Shri Krishna encountered the terrible army of Narakasura. On one side, the entire army of Narakasura and on the other side Shri Krishna is alone but Narayana is Narayan, he destroyed the entire army of Narakasura in an instant. Seeing this, the stunned Narakasura reached battle with Lord Krishna and left his best weapon on the Narayana. But Narayan failed all his weapons. And in the end, Shri Hari, who destroyer of the demons, finally hit the Narakasura with Sudarshan Chakra. Sudarshan Chakra cuts the earth's son Narakasura into pieces. On the death of Narakasura, the Earth appeared with the earrings of Aditi and started saying to Shri Jagannath that "O Nath, you have saved me by taking his Varaha avatar, at the same time I had touched by you , this son of mine was born to me, thus you gave me this son." And you destroyed him. Take this earrings and now protect his children. Please be happy and forgive all the crimes of your son Narakasura even if you have self killed him to make your son sinless. Pleased on me, you have incarnated in this world with your part to take my load off.
Later Lord Vishnu said to the earth "May your wish be fulfilled" and then took all kinds of gems from the palace of Narakasura. And went to the girl's jail of Narakasura , saw 16100 girls, and saw 6000 elephants with four teeth and 210000 horses .
Those girls and elephants-horses were immediately transported to Dwarikapuri by servants of Narakasura, after which Krishna saw Varuna's Kshatra and Maniparvat of Mandaranchal, picked them up and placed them on Birds's king Garuda . And along with Satyabhama, he climbed on Garuda and left for heaven to give Aditi's earrings . And after returning from heaven, he married 16100 girls. First he had 8 wives, after this, he had 16108 wives.

Why did Vishnu ji uproot his two hairs?
The story that I have brought today is described in the first chapter of the 5th part of Vishnupurana, according to the story .......Once the goddess earth, suffering from extreme sin on her surface ,took the form of a cow and went to the deities on Mount Sumeru, and bowed to the lord Bramha Ji and said, "O lord, just as the Sun is the supreme master of the gold and the group of rays, similarly the guru of all the worlds, who is also my guru, O deities you all are also the part of him. Aditya, Rudra, Vasu, Agni, demon, monster , phantom , Gandharva, snake, Apsara, planet, constellation, the whole world is Vishnumay, O Divyamirtidhari Devgan, At this time on my surface many unmanageable armies of haughty and powerful demons .
Let me tell you that now I am unable to bear myself after suffering from excessive sin, so therefore , O great deities, take some measures to take off my load, slowly - slowly I will be very distraught and go to the abyss (Patalalok). Hearing this, Brahmaji also got upset and thinking about remedies to reduce the weight of the earth, but after thinking too much, there was no solution, he said to the earth, "O earth, you are not distraught at all, solution will definitely happen with the help of Shri Vishnu, so with me you also praise Narayana, then all the gods including Brahma ji started praising Narayan. Hearing all the types of praise, Lord Narayana, revealing his form and said to Brahma ji, "O Brahma Ji, say everything you wish with the gods and understand them as complete. Then Brahma Ji said that "O Lord, this earth has become unbalanced due to the emergence of great Asuras on her surface, it has come in your refuge to destroy the weight of the world . Therefore, O Lord and all the gods present here and request you to take away the sufferings of this earth and also tell what is the command for us, because by following your command, we will be free from all the defects. On the saying of Brahma ji, Lord Narayana removed two hairs of his white and black color and said to the gods that "My two hairs will take the avatar on the earth and liberate the earth from the burden of sins, therefore, all the gods will incarnate from their own parts and fight against all the demons. Then, of course, from my anger, the entire monster on the earth floor will become destroyed, from the 8th womb of Vasudeva's wife , my black hair it will incarnate which will be known as Shyam (Krishna) and kill Kansh who the avatar of Kalnemi, saying this Shri Hari Vishnu became invisible. And all the gods returned to Mount Sumeru, the Earth also got settled and went to its place,
while black hair took the form of Lord Krishna and caused the destruction of all the demons like Kansha, and you all will remember all the warriors of Mahabharata, there were incarnations of the deity, and all of them also fought and destroyed the demons, and while the white hair incarnated on the earth as Radha.

God, avatar and divine stories -5
Welcome friends… Today I am present with the service of all of you by taking remaining part in the The Avatar series , the fifth part of the series. Thank you for the love and affection you got from people. If today's articles is also liked by you, my happiness lies in this. Thank you from the heart and thank you for expressing your happiness through mail to me. All of you are requested again to share the article on social media. So that keeps me excited and writing power. At the end of the article, all of you will get a link to the fourth part. ................Thank youVyasa's son Shuk Dev Paramhans is going to recite the Bhagavata, the king Parikshit is the listener and the one who is Bhagwata in relation to it is Shri Krishna. Shukdev Ji is said to Lord Vishnu's main devotee and Parikshit to be safe by Vishnu.
Shukdev ji stayed in his mother's womb for 12 years, when his father Vyas ji assured him that maya would not even touch you, then he came out of the womb and left home as soon as he came.
According to Devi Bhagwat, his father told him to accept the married life, then he refused. Then he said "Father tell me, what happiness is there in this world which is not filled with sorrow? .. By marrying, I will be in control of a woman. "Vyas ji sent him to King Janak, King Janak explained to him:" How can you live in the forest? The disqueitness of food will be with you and the deer etc. will also be live with you. You will be worried about your deer skin like I worried about my kingdom. Then both of us have the same concern. " When Raja Janak persuaded him, he entered the Grihastha Ashram. After that Shukdev Ji Maharaj left his father and went to Kailash where he was entered in the Samadhi. On getting siddhis, his posture rose above the peak and started shining like a great bright sun in the sky. His father Vyas ji felt very sad. Then Shankar ji came and explained to him that Shukdev ji had great achivement and told Vyas ji not to grieve. Shankar ji showed him the shadow of his son to calm Vyas ji. And Vyas ji came to his ashram. These same Shuk Dev ji has admitted that despite being formless worshipers, he was attracted to the legend of Lord Krishna and studied Bhagwat. How is Krishna the one whom Shukdev Ji was attracted towards? It is described place to place in the Bhagavata, especially in the dasham skandha. Bhagwat is the story of Jeeva and Brahm. This is the story of us and our God.
Between us both - God and the living being - there is another power that puts the curtain of ignorance called Maya. Prima facie it seems that Maya is a villain. Actually it is not. Maya is the power of Krishna, therefore it is good, it cannot be bad.
If it does not hurt by giving sorrow to us again and again, how we will go towards God . There is also the story of this Maya in Bhagwat. The incarnation of God is because we leave Maya and turn to God. In this way, we are disconnect to God and are in front of Maya. One day when we get tired and turn to God, God will embrace us, he will not push.
Five chapters related to Raas are said to be five elements of Shri Madbhagwat. It is the test of the listener and the speaker in understanding and explaining them, such as the friend and wife in the time of calamity and the doctor in the disease of Tridosha. Only God knows own true concept and meaning. The power that a bird has, it can fly as high and as long stay in the sky, similarly according to the power of own intellect, saintly people, learned people have interpreted the leelas of God, described according to their own understanding…........God's leelas are endless. It is not ability for anyone to fully understand it.
Come enjoy Krishna story! Krishna says, explaining Arjuna in the Gita, that both his birth and karma are divine. Who is known to it then he is attain to Krishna. There is a divinity in his birth that Krishna does not take birth due to the bondage of nature from the mother's womb, but subjugate nature and appear. His body is not as natural as our body. It is divine, chinmaya and eccentric. There is no difference between body and soul, both our body and soul are separate. When God goes to his abode after finishing the leela, he does not leave this body on the earth, he goes along with the body. This was done by Meera Tukarama etc. also. Dhruva also gone to Bhagwat dham from the divine body. Shri Krishna appears
willingly. His karma have divinity that by listening, reciting and remembering , the inner conscience of man is to be purified and ignorance is removed. The second divinity in their deeds is that God is not bound to do karma. God is not required to do any karma nor is there any need to get anything. God performs karma for the welfare of the creatures which is called Leela. Thus keeping the mystery of the birth and deeds of Shri Krishna, enjoy the leelas of Shri Krishna.
First of all, Krishna entered the mind of Vasudev ji. Due to this, his face became glow, no one could able to see his face. He became the abode of Krishna. With this, Shri Bhagwan entered into the mind of Devaki Ji. Devaki's body became the abode of God. She became beautiful, like the east direction becomes beautiful after getting the rising moon. Due to the confinement of Kansa, no one could see this beauty that arose from holding God. They began to illuminate the entire atmosphere, which made Kansa realize that my slayer has come into Devaki's womb. By giving darshan, God told both the spouses about their past lives, that they were Prishni and Sutpa, and that God had become their son and that the name of God was Prishnigarbha. After this, it was Aditi and Kashyapa and God was born as Vamana in his son form. Give darshan both of them in chaturbhuj form (quadrilateral form) and said, they are showing this form of theirs so that they remember the earlier incarnations of God because human body cannot identify the incarnation of God. God commanded them to have genuine affection for God so that they would receive the ultimate position. Then the quadrilateral form disappeared from the eyes and God appeared as an ordinary child. Nature became cheerful with the
appearance of God. Just like the coming of the sun naturally causes heat, the moon brings coolness, the rain brings wetness, similarly the manifestation of the ocean of joy overwhelmed everyone and joy. Vasudev Ji brought the baby to Gokul. Asuras were slaughtered by Shri Krishna, amazing leelas of love were shown and knowledge of Gita was given to Arjuna and devotion and knowledge were given to Uddhav.

God, avatar and divine stories -4
Hello friends, I am presenting infront of you a new article of Avatar series.I hope you will like this article as before. The link of Part-3 will be given to you at the end of the article. And if you want to read all the parts then go to see label (The Avatar series).If you like my article, do share it on social media. A link to the previous article will also be found at the end of the article. Till then you earn knowledge from this article and wait for the next article. Thank youAvatar means to come down, to incarnate, to express what was not seen, to be a manifestation.
There are many reasons given by God to take incarnation, it is also a reason to take off the problem of the earth. When there is loss of dharma and increase of wrongdoing, then God
incarnates, for the protection of devotees and the destruction of sinners. And for the establishment of dharma. Kunti says that God incarnates only to perform the audible and memorable leela for those who are suffering from ignorance of desire and bondage of karma in the world, the devotees kept listening &remembering to the character of the Lord again and again and kept rejoicing and crossed the Bhavsagar. This is also the reason for the incarnation of God. Krishna himself also explains to Uddhava that some gopis who could not attend his rasa vihara because they were stopped by the kinsmen, they attained to Shri Krishna only by remembering Shri Krishna's leelas.
At the time of incarnation, the body of God is not made of five elements like our body, neither mayic nor body .it is unnatural and consisting of pure intelligence . God does not born from the mother's womb due to karma-bandhan but appears. This is called manifestation. Realization is as if born. After Leela, God goes to his abode along with the body. This is called emergence. Like our bodies, his bodies do not destroy and originate. There is no difference between body and soul in the body of God. Just as there is a conceited soul of an ordinary body, there is no conceit of the body of God. In the incarnation period of God, the body is divine and all the functions of this body are done by God or it can be said that all work is done by the power of God. Now the question is also sometimes raised that how can one who is everywhere be one point, how to live in one body?
It can be understood that fire is present in
formless form in every place where there is wood. When a fire is offered at one particular place, it cannot be interpreted to mean that fire is only one place and there is no fire in the wood of the other place. God is omnipresent, everywhere. However, avatars can be exclusively in the body, it is not surprising. Just like the soul who holds the body remains in the whole body. Giant creatures such as camel or elephants have soul all over their body. But it remains exclusively in the heart. In this way, the omnipotent God is specially taking a body for incarnation. It does not mean that the rest of the places have become empty of God, they have lost their place. God incarnates in every species .Body of an Avatar is unique. His eyes can do the work of ears, nose, skin and tongue; and in the same way any other sense organ works like all the other sense organs. Lord does not reveal His real Self to all---- only a devoted few can see His actual form during Avatar period.The Sanskrit word Avatar means coming down. Descension of the Almighty from His divine abode on our earth that is material world mayic is Avatar. His abode is Omnipresent like Himself. Therefore God does not have to go anywhere in the sense of moving from one place to another as we do. He just appears avirbhav, is not born like you and I. We come into this earth through a mother's womb in bondage to our karma . The Supreme One, however, is not in shackles or bonds of nature prakriti . Rather prakriti is in his control.Such a body is free from disease, want, hunger and other evils that plague human body. His body appears to go through the stages of birth, infancy, childhood and teen age (Ram and Krishna never go beyond adolescence).
God's body is not Body plus Soul. In such a body there are no gross, subtle or causal bodies .
From the above cited scriptures it is clear that when righteousness is on the decline and unrighteousness is on the rise, then to protect the virtuous, punish the evil ones and to establish dharma ie.good order Lord comes into manifestation in every age yug.
The people who have a devotional set of mind are of the view that Lord is a Being full of grace. His coming is a blessing for those who are His devotees. They can see Him, feel Him, hear His voice, can touch Him and can even participate in His divine activities -leela. The Lord gives an object of remembrance so the devotees can liberate themselves. Hence it is also said that avatar is to liberate devotees. Since He is infinite His purpose cannot be finite. Omnipotent can come into this world for any reason He thinks fit-- the reasons of His coming cannot be put down into words. It should be remembered that when He is on earth in a particular form, all are not able to know him, or recognise him as God. Only the fortunate few who treat him as and think of him as God are able to “see’’. From others He hides behind the veil of His is Maya. To them He looks like an ordinary human being and not omnipotent. In Kans’s akhara where bow competition ,dhanush yagya was being performed people saw krishna in different forms according to their own feelings; to some He appeared as a young boy, to some others as a strong man and still to others as their very death . When God Himself appears, such appearance is vimbavatar . This is of two types--the major one is shakshaat avatar , the minor one
is aveshavatar. Aveshavatar is also of two kinds. First one is Shakti Avesh , second is roopavesh . In the first one it is only power -Shakti which is manifested in a person, while in the second one the divine body enters a living entity, the one in whose body God goes in becomes divine. When Lord comes on this earth in a body the maximum potencies, Kala are 16. This should not lead one to believe that the almighty has only 16 powers. No! He has infinite. On earth maximum potencies needed are 16. These have been named kala by the learned. When these kalas are in manifestations, it is called Kalavatar . When the power is 1 upon 16th part of the kala then we have Ansha avatar. One manifesting even lesser than this is Vibhuti avatar . Not for a minute, get the erroneous idea that one avatar has less powers and the other more. This is just not the divine law. The divine cannot be broken into fractions. Where ever He is He is whole and in all His fullness. From this we can safely conclude that each avatar has infinite power, only those potencies which are necessary for the purpose of the avatar are revealed, the others remain dormant. That is 16 Kala of Krishna avatar , Ramavatar of 12 Kala, Mohini Avatar and Parashuramavatar are all equal and God. In Purnavatara, God incarnates in the chaturvyuh.
Vasudeva, Balarama, Pradyumna and Anirudh - they are the vyuh of Krishnavatara and Rama, Lakshmana, Bharata and Shatrughna are the vyuh of Ramaavtar. Gunaavatar are depands on guna ie ..Vishnu Satgun, Brahma Rajoguna and Rudra Tamogun. This is a permanent avatar. Yugavatar in every era, like Rama in every Treta, Krishna in
every Dwapara; Kalpavatars come in every kalpa.
Vishnu is the permanent avatar of the positive force satgun, the negative force or tamogun is manifested as Shiv the destroyer, while Brahma the creator represents rajogun.
Archavatar depends on the faith and belief of the worshipper. God takes the form of the idol or the photo that the devotee worships. It is a sacred and secret relation between the Lord and his devotee bhakt . According to Brahmand Puran Archa Avata is of four types--1)Self manifested eg Shriranga, Prayag,2) Divine that is established or made by Brahma or Devas eg Madhav in Kashi, Ramaa Madhav in Hastishell, 3) Made by some god realised soul eg Lord Vishnu’s Idol by King Shivi in Nandi Puri,4) Icons established by man and temples built by man eg uncountable The power of these idols extends for three yojan, one yojan, two kos and one kos respectively.This Avtar is always available, and at all times. Whether it is a time when God is in manifestation(avtar), or a time when God is not in manifestation. During avtar-time,it is rather difficult to have faith--who can believe that a man crying hysterically for his wife and askinq trees and creepers whether they have seen her is Omnipotent.This happened in Ramavtar.However,faith can be easily be established in an idol. Arachavtar can be of stone,mud,wood,paper or anything,even imaginary. As far as showering grace is concerned ,this Archa Avtar has given grace to maximum number of souls.It began in treta yug when people started disrespecting one another,the learned hit upon the idea of Omnipotent in idol .
Then the antaryami lives within each one of us, He is the Indwelling Lord. He can give darshan that is show himself to devotees in the form of “ishtamoorthy’’. And we all live in the same body with Him. Both of us are like two birds on a tree. However, He is different from us . He is only an observer while we are doing our acts that is karma with attachment. This truth is repeated in our scriptures- After finishing the work, the avatar returns to abode with his body. Their form looks according to the sentiment of the people. Not everyone is the same --- in Sita-Swayamvar, the same Ram-Lashman appeared to different people in different forms. It is again mentioned at the cost of repetition that all the Avatars have equal powers, only the power necessary for the particular purpose is used; other powers which are infinite are kept in quiescence or abeyance eg. Narsingh Avatar Parshuram Avatar Mohini Avatar, all had equal powers .Only a portion of divine Majesty and Glory is manifested in accordance with the demand of the circumstances. Of twenty four Avatars mentioned in Bhagvat full Glory is shown forth by only two. Ram And Krishn bring to surface all Glory, all Majesty and all the Power. For instance in Narsingh avatar, the only task was to bring an end to Hiranyakashyapa. Dispensing wisdom was not done by this particular avatar. Kapil Bhagwan imparted knowledge only, He did not kill demons. Likewise Mohini avatar brought out only feminine beauty in order to distract the asurs, the war- like powers of Chamunda remained concealed. The following incarnations of God are mentioned in the Bhagavata; their renewable source is Narayan. Sanak, Sanandan, Sanatan and Sanatkumar Varah,Narada, Hansha, Haygreeva
,Nar -Narayan,Kapil,Dattatreya,Yagyarupa, Rishabhdev, Raja Prithu,Matasya, Kurma, Dhanvantari, Mohini, Narasimha,Vamana, Parashurama,Vyasa, Rama,Balrama, Krishna,Buddha and Kalki. In this way, the incarnations of God are numerous.
While explaining the mystery to Narada Ji, Brahma ji says: "When it is time for creation of the world, then there is austerities, nine Prajapati, Marichi etc. sages and in my [Brahma] form; When it is time to protect the world, then in the form of dharma, Vishnu, Manu, gods and kings
and when it is time for the holocaust of the world, then the divine elements of Almighty God appear in the anger form of snakes and demons, etc., with adharma, Rudra and anger.
Brahma was born to four boys. They were the first son of Brahma. their names were Sanak, Sanandan, Sanatan and Sanatkumar. They are also the forefather of Shankarji. The scholars consider them to be the Shakti avesh incarnation of God, they preached self knowledge.
Once they went to meet God in Vaikunth, Lord's gatekeeper Jai & Vijay stopped them at the door. Angered, they cursed them to fall from Vaikuntha; Jai and Vijay became demons thrice and they were slaughtered by the hands of God three times.
Hiranyaksha was got killed by the Varaha avatar , Hiranyakashipu by Narsimha , Ravana and Kumbhkarna by lord Rama, Shishupala and Dantavaktra by lord Krishna.
They once asked Brahma ji: "Father! The mind penetrates into the subjects, that is, it penetrates in the qualities, the qualities also fit into the mind's one instinct, how to separate these two to achieve liberation? " Lord Brahma could not answer, remembered God, appeared in the form of a Hansa (swan), and preached self knowledge to the Sankadikas.
He called world was called luxury of mind. Body and soul told separately. Said to be in the bliss of the soul. Just as the awakened person does not believe in the dream body ,thing etc., in the same way, a person who is engaged in yoga neither consider the woman, son, wealth etc. and nor his body to be his own, when he absorbed the self object. He starts to consider himself as different from the body. God described himself shelter as Yoga, Sankhya, Satya, Tej, Sri, Kirti etc. and said that all the qualities are inbuilt in him but they are devoid of all the qualities. To cross the ocean of the world, scripture recommend to make the feet of God as a boat. All these places come and go without interruption.
