Avatar, on the other hand is incarnation of GOD as living being. The purpose is limited, i.e. the avatar invariably assists in taking the humanity out of the most difficult conditions. Once those conditions improve, the Avatar leaves the earth. Since the presence is physical, Hindus very rightly accord more importance to Avatars.
“As and when the quantum of Adharm increases to uncontrollable level, I come on this earth as Avatar to set things right”; Lord Krishna from Gita.
That means that as when God did incarnate, the problems were unmanageable and certainly much more than the problems faced by we Hindus during the last 1000 years of invaders rule. This we know for certain, because God DID NOT incarnate then. Yet this fact, unfortunately, is NOT being told by GURUS to the faithful, resulting in Passive attitude.
We know for certain that Shri Ram’s Avatar was because of serious atrocities being committed on females and on EVOLVED humans who were called Vaanars at that time. The atrocities were being committed with full sanction of religious Gurus of that time. Ram ended all this.
IMPORTANT:The creator of VEDAS, other religious TEXTS comes on this earth as Avatar, and by example, teaches the Dharm. Since human incarnation of God creates History, it thus gets recorded as such, and all that the faithful have to do is to understand the narration of that history, which is always simple and in story form. Dharm becomes very simple indeed. Sanskrit, and formal education in Hindu religion is not required.
BRAINWASH of faithful is done by these so called Gurus, so that the faithfuls start feeling that anyone who is using verifiable statistics to inform Hindu society that wrong Dharm was being preached, is showing disrespect to Vedas and otherTexts. They even forget that Lord Vishnu is the guardian of all Vedas and as such the best practical way of getting Vedic knowledge is by following the Dharm as established by Avatars of Lord Vishnu.The solution to all this can be achieved by educated Hindus. But there attitude is extremely Passive.
