Within our consciousness, the dashavataar (the ten incarnations) is eternally present.
When the consciousness awakened, knowledge arose, then the Matsya(fish) incarnated; when that knowledge stabilized, became quiet, then Kurma(turtle) incarnated; the mind was cleansed. The old issues that we used to be bothered by, they were cleansed, Varah(boar) incarnated. When the radiance manifested with much gravity and power, then sensitivity appeared, and Narasimha(half man-half lion) incarnated.
Vaman who is very beautiful, extremely beautiful, He destroys arrogance. Beauty is like that. Attraction is one that destroys arrogance. No matter how much arrogance there is, it gets shattered.
If you want to crush the ego in a person, then do just one thing – show him an extremely beautiful thing. Seeing an extremely beautiful object, situation or individual, arrogance gets shattered. Vaman incarnation is that which destroys arrogance.
Parashuram is one who accepts everything. In the incarnation of Ram there is morality. If life is devoid of morality, you would be a nuisance to society, and a misery to yourself. However, if you just remain in propriety, you will not be able to celebrate. If you are unable to experience the infinite nature of your soul, you will become depressed.
In the Krishnavatar, celebration is present in its fullness. In any situation, we can celebrate – this is the message. And along with celebration, there should be silence, become content in yourself, in silence. Contentment - one glimpse of it can fulfill, make you still and take you into silence – be content with celebration also.
Buddha was in such silence, in peace – Buddha’s incarnation carries a lot of significance. When people in yaduvansh itself forgot peace, goodness, love, then trouble began. There was so much pride that God is our very own, so what do we need to do? Just keep celebrating!
When there is celebration, keep one thing in mind, that there is an expansion of the mind. In that expanded mind, attentiveness/one-pointedness is not there, sensitivity is lost. There is no concern for anyone. What kind of effect it is having on someone, no thought is given to this. One is just absorbed in one’s own mood. Often the individual who is happy is lost in his own fantasy, loses all awareness.
When Buddha came, awareness spread everywhere. This is very meaningful. It is significant that after celebration, there should be silence. But after silence, if one remains in silence, then everything will cool down /fizzle out. It will slip into tamoguna (inertia/ignorance).
That is why it has been said that the incarnation of Kalki arrived riding on a horse. What is ‘horse’? It is called ‘Ashva’. In Sanskrit, ‘Ashva’ there is only one word ‘Horse’, and for now, ‘present’; ‘Shva’ meaning yesterday i.e. past or tomorrow i.e. yet to come – ‘ashva’ means that which is not yesterday or tomorrow; which is now, in this moment.
Within you, such awareness will awaken – that Kalki awareness – that relates to the present, and feels a sense of belonging to the whole world; that this whole world is our very own. If you believe this, then it is the victory of the Kalki incarnation. No one is an outsider!
This is a small glimpse of the dashaavataar (the ten incarnations).
