WHAT IT IS?
Incarnation is the form taken by a person or thing as a manifestation towards mankind irrespective of appearance and creed.
As per ancient scripture’s perspective, an Incarnation (AVATAR, Sanskrit word of the same ) is a concept that means “descent”, is the emergence of deity on earth.
One can simply understand it as an embodiment/realization/personification of something in a way or another.
PURPOSE BEHIND IT?
In the holy scriptures irrespective of any religion, God says that when in need he will take Avataras(embodiment) and when needed in order to inoculate you, he will destroy the sinful and unrighteous.
However, there is a salient outlook to this verse.
He can fulfill anything by his will, yet he chose to come from the abode and live on earth amidst us(in a form of INCARNATION). By the act of this, he didn’t exhibit his lordship but showed extreme simplicity that he had even taken the form of animal, plant and even what we call a non-living object and transited us the message of truth and righteousness.
Example from an ancient Indian scripture dated 500 BCE to 100 BCE
Sitaya Charitam Mahat tells us about the life history of Sita, who is depicted as the daughter of Bhumi(the Earth) and the downfall of the grandson(Ravana) of the Sage Pulasthya.
Sage Pulasthya was one of the ten Prajapati(creation by the lord) or mind-born sons of the Brahma(Father of the human race ), and he was among the Saptarishi, (a Sanskrit word meaning seven sages) in the first period of mankind.
The boons accorded by Brahma have let him inevitable and as a consequence of it, out of arrogance and egotism, he kept the universe under his control.
The deities discuss these matters, to let down his growing cruelty, Brahma commands the cosmic beings and gods to descent on Earth and defeat the growing atrocities of Ravana and promote truth, peace and harmony to the mankind
Sita, a personification of self-restraint and self-mortification like Rama, is committed to the truth and faith that is central to the epic.
The fundamental instruction to improve someone morally or intellectually of the scripture is that no matter how powerful evil is, it will always be defeated by truth and righteousness. Truth always wins, no matter how brutal or toxic falsehood is, and it is a universal fate.
ONCE YOU PAY AWARENESS TO THE CATASTROPHE
When an unrest situation designates notice to itself. When betrayal, discord, disharmony, unnaturalness, wrongness, evil, immorality, unrighteousness and wickedness is to the paramount, it catches the heed of almighty. He incarnates himself either in a physical or conscious form to the earth in order to pay direct concern to the problem and personally resolves it.
As we are the commander of our inner world i.e., what’s going on in our mind we do the same sometimes as what was explained earlier. It happens to us sometimes for trouble or a tremendous problem, we pay regard to it and seek to mitigate it by focusing our spirit on it.
Now and then, when you are in grief, you might dive deep within yourself and try to figure out the concern and improve yourself. It is the same thing that INCARNATION does in the broader picture.
There is a link between something that we did in our past and what we are facing in the prevailing scenario.
Natural holocaust and catastrophe have been harming in different fragments of the world. People have different thoughts and beliefs about it, few think of it as mere consequences or events taking place by chance. However, there is a section of people who take them as an act of god or assessment of the almighty.
From above we can conclude three aspects:-
- Holocaust/catastrophe is the penance of God for those who are either sinful or crossed his line.
- It is cautionary for the offender or wrongdoer.
- These are the test for the one who practices the path of truth and righteousness.
INCARNATION WITHIN THE SELF
Despite the fact that the incarnations of deity are meant to promote humankind.
God resides in both the self-consciousness and the soul respectively. Therefore whatever is happening in the outer world may also happen within our consciousness and the soul of each being. In some instances, he may directly be with his devotees and enlighten their minds to help them shun or overcome some complexity.
One of the grounds of the personification and epitome, which we have not depicted before, is to serve as a role model and follow the actions and duties which you are assigned to perform being on Earth for others to follow.
The epitome exemplifies either a way of living a life or certain features which being can derive as inspiration to improve and facilitate themselves, avoiding the falsehood and trap of the worldly life.
The personification also gives ambition and courage to people who fallen into wrongful and immoral ways to revive themselves just as the almighty revives the fallen world by destroying the wrongful and restoring the order.
