Concept of Avaatar Hinduism avatar manifest god bhagwan kalki
Avatar - the concept of
Avaatar in Hinduism (manifest God)... does it hold good?
From times immemorial it has been a standard
practice in Hinduism to accept the existence of Avatar.
But who is an Avatar... is Avatar manifest God himself or a human
being who assumes significant spiritual powers that the humanity
starts considering one an Avatar.
In the present
Yuga everyone is awaiting with abated breath the advent
of the Avatar of the era... the coming of Bhagwan
Kalki. It is considered that in the present metal age
Kalki... the Avatar of the era shall deliver the mankind
from the ills existing in the society.
Who shall be this Avatar? Shall this Avatar descend from the
heaven as is expected by many or shall he be a normal
human being with supernatural powers? Lord
Krishna was an Avatar and so is Bhagwan Kalki expected
to be an Avatar.
Before elaborating further on the topic of Avatar... we need to
understand why the need for an Avatar exists at all. Why the mankind
at a certain phase in the cosmic cycle needs an Avatar? Can we really
not manage without an Avatar
the coming of an Avatar is so important then why is it not so that we have the
coming of Avatar very often! Lord Krishna considered an Avatar came about 3600
years before and now we await the coming of Bhagwan Kalki... An Avatar! What necessitated
for such a long gap of 3600 years before another Avatar dropped in!
Explaining the concept
of Avatar in detail... one thing needs to be remembered clearly and that is...
with the onset of every new Yuga... there is an Avatar! No new Yuga can start
without an Avatar. This is a confirmed fact. Why?
Let us take the example
of a tennis ball... if we throw this tennis ball on a flat ground then at a certain
stage it shall strike the ground and again bounce back... travel a certain distance
and again strike the ground and bounce back. This keeps on repeating until the
ball has no energy left for it to bounce or travel any further. It comes to a
Exactly in the same manner every Yuga needs an Avatar to announce
the start of the journey. Without an Avatar the ball shall never bounce and shall
remain where it is. It is the Augustus presence of an Avatar that announces the
start of the Sat Yuga. It is the time when the clock rings 12 p.m. The period
when the sun is in its full zenith!
It is only an Avatar who signifies
that human life is worth living... his teachings and sayings give the humanity
that vital ingredient which is absolutely necessary for the humanity to survive
as a flock. As the clock turns 3 p.m. the human values start their decay... as
the clock approaches 6 p.m. the values in the society have deteriorated further.
The Avatar may have come and departed but his teachings and values form the
core of the society... the society from now onwards survives on the basis of the
teachings rendered by the Avatar who was instrumental in start of the Yuga (primarily
the Sat Yuga).
The period from
the evening and until almost 5:00 a.m. is the period of the Kali
Yuga (the period when materialistic tendencies are in their peak)...
this is the time when human values almost break down... and as approaches
the morning... we also need to pass through most darkening phase
of the society, the period from 5 a.m. to 6 AM. It is this period
in the history of mankind when the existing
Kali Yuga ends with a World
This World War at the end of a Kali Yuga is inevitable. None can
improve upon the prevailing situations in the society. Prayers increase
and so increase the expectation of an Avatar who shall come and
deliver the mankind from the existing ills and also announce the
start of a new Sat Yuga!
After a lapse of about 3600 years when the clock is almost ringing
5 a.m. ... this is the time when the likes of Bhagwan Kalki, an
Avatar of the era shall surface and deliver the mankind towards
a new era, a new Yuga (a Sat Yuga).
Man Gods like Mahavira,
Gautama Buddha, Jesus
Christ or Prophet
Mohammed after having gained
Enlightenment can show to the humanity the path to achieving
Salvation (moksha in Hinduism) but can they ever deliver
the mankind absolutely and totally from the existing ills? Never...
for it is only the power within an Avatar who can exercise absolute
control over the existing ills and provide a reprieve to the society!
It is only an Avatar who shall pick up the stationary lying ball
and throw it again announcing the start of a new Yuga. What an experience
the society goes through. Is it not amazing that every Yuga has
its own Avatar. Every Yuga principally starting from the stage of
Sat Yuga and ends in a Kali Yuga before everything gets cleansed
up by the occurrence of a World War. This is the phase of time in
humanity when only those who have upright thinking survive.
Every individual who enjoyed living the materialistic trend of life
shall find no place during the start of the new Yuga... the Sat
Yuga! All shall get annihilated for there is no place for such beasts
of the society who feed upon the values of the society and result
in decay of the society as a whole. It is practically unlivable
in a Kali Yuga... Unlivable for those who cherished uplifting the
moral values of the society!
We also need to remember
here that once the ball is thrown... every subsequent strike and its uplift announces
the advent of a new Man
god! After the advent of Lord Krishna (an Avatar)... came Mahavira...
then about 77 years later followed Gautama Buddha... another 423 years later followed
Jesus Christ and another after 200 years followed Prophet Mohammed! The chronology
of the spiritual events in every Yuga is almost fixed. Why fear the unknown!
In the present... everyone who practices purity in thinking dearly awaits
the coming of Bhagwan Kalki... an Avatar of the modern era. Those with materialistic
trends fear his coming for they inherently know that the Avatar shall be the cause
of their complete annihilation from the face of the earth. All these human beings
who practiced and were the cause of most of the ills of the society have to leave...
there is no place for such beings in the new Yuga.
Now I shall explain
why there is nothing like God manifesting on Mother Earth! God Almighty never
manifests. It is not a living entity... it is not an individual... it is the collective
power of all the purified Souls Atmans in the Cosmos.
It is always an onlooker (a Dhrishta in Hinduism). Everything in whole Cosmos
runs on its own like a mighty computer. Everything is preprogrammed. You pray
and you shall be rewarded accordingly.
Likewise... an Avatar is a normal
human being who has for the sake of the society assumed supernatural powers by
his intense practice of Yoga ... he is one amongst the 6000 million people...
the one and only one to have assumed such enormous powers that it is beyond the
comprehension of normal human beings to imagine such a one as a normal mortal
and hence one is termed an Avatar... the manifest God himself.
do they descend from the heaven or are they normal human beings with supernatural
in the society as of today even challenge the existence of Mahavira, Gautama Buddha,
Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed... for they felt it was not within the powers
of a normal human being to attain the status of a Man god. It is extremely difficult
for these slaves of wanton desires to imagine and practice moral values which
they so dearly choose not to practice.
The animal within these people
has already laid its fangs on the society... these people... the poor souls know
very well that it is just not possible for them to retrace their steps... they
have come a long way forward and only believe in tormenting the society in general.
They are the apes of the society who have nothing of their own but the materialistic
riches they have forcibly laid their hands upon.
Primarily it is the
within a human being which prevents us from accepting the fact that one amongst
us... a normal mortal can possess such supernormal powers so that the society
considers one an Avatar... one who possesses the power of God
Lord Krishna was such a one and was called an Avatar. In present times we are
awaiting the advent of Bhagwan Kalki... one who shall be termed as the Avatar
of the modern era. Let us all pray
to god to expedite the coming of the Avatar...
