Gurudev, there are many avatars (an incarnate divine teacher) and each avatar is complete. So why do we have so many avatars?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Why should we not. In fact we should have even more!
Avatar means descending. Descending for a social cause. And if you see from my eyes, you will see the whole universe is just simply a manifestation. Everything is an avatar, there is nothing that is devoid of avatar.
The infinite consciousness has dawned to serve. That is avatar.
