Dashavatar of Vishnu – pics of 6-10 avatars
Krishna said to Arjuna in Mahabharat war : Whenever Dharma, or the situation of law and order, is endangered on this world, I incarnate onto this world to re establish Dharma, law and order, and to protect the Sadhus or saints and to destroy the evil elements of the society. – Bhagavat Gita
This article is in continuation to earlier article where we published the pictures of 1-5 avatars of Vishnu. Details of next 6 avatars are found as following.
Parshurama was the son of sage Jamdagni and Renuka. He has killed evil doers kings of the earth. A great archer, was the teacher (guru) of Bhishma, Drona and Karna. He is one of the seven immortal ones (saptachiranjiva).
Rama was born as a son of Dashrath and Kaushalya. He slayed the demon king Ravana of Lanka. Assisted by Hanuman and Lakshman ( Sheshnaag’s avatar).
This incarnation was the central character of Mahabharat. Mahabharat was the conflict of kuru brothers, Kauravas and Pandavas. He did not fight the war himself. He was the charioteer of great archer, Arjuna in the Mahabharat war. In his early life, he killed Kansa. His brother was Balrama and he is also believed to be a avatar of Lord Vishnu by some texts.
In the Puranic texts, he is mentioned as one of the ten avatars of Vishnu, usually as the ninth one. Siddhartha was born in a royal Hindu Kshatriya family. Gautama was famously seated under a pipal tree—now known as the Bodhi tree—in Bodh Gaya, India, when he vowed never to arise until he had found the truth. His companions believed that he had abandoned his search and become undisciplined, left. After a reputed 49 days of meditation, at the age of 35, he is said to have attained enlightenment.
The tenth and last avatar, Kalki avatar, is supposed to happen in future, in Kaliyug. This will be the tenth and final Maha Avatar (great incarnation) of Vishnu who will bring to an end the present age of darkness and destruction known as Kali Yuga. He will establish a new era based on truth, righteousness, humanism and goodness, called Satya Yuga.
