Question: Which is the one incarnation of God that can be considered the most apt Avatar for the Age?

Radhe Krishna To all,

Which is the one incarnation of God that can be considered the most apt Avatar for the Age?

Sri.Sri.Muralidhara Swamiji:

Let us consider all the avatars of the Almighty one by one in terms of their relevance to us, the mortals stuck in the sea of ignorance and yet aspiring for liberation.

Even before we venture deeper into this discussion, I would like to firmly reiterate the fact that when we say that all are avatars of the Almighty we automatically admit that they are all great, relevant and significant in their own way. We bow down before all these great ones and the legacy that they have left behind. Our intention is not to compare one with another or hurt any individual sentiments. What we wish to convey is the relevance (or the lack of it!) of each avatar from the point of view of a commoner in this Kali yuga!

Blessed are those few who have managed to rightly comprehend and tread the paths exactly as shown by those great ones!

But what is the solution for the majority who are unable to understand the essence or the true intent of those great teachers? What is the most relevant avatar for them - one that is open to all? That is the standpoint from where we are about to view every avatar. Let us bear that in mind firmly and clearly as we move along.

The incomparable Lord Sri Rama led a life of purity that exemplified Dharma. He led the life of an ideal person in every manner possible. But what do we find today? A man does puja to Lord Sri Rama and divorces his wife. He breaks every law in the book.

His truth and righteousness is not even close to one percent of what was demonstrated in Sri Rama's life. So, it is difficult to conclude that Sri Rama Avatar has really impacted the common man of today.

Let us consider the avatar of Lord Sri Krishna – the absolute personification of Brahman – "Poornam Brahma SanAtanam". The Dharma and path shown by the Lord is way beyond the levels of comprehension of the mundane worldly brain. Why go that far? Even the greatest of minds cannot fully comprehend the mysterious ways of Lord Sri Krishna in His form.

Coming to a relatively recent historical past, let us get down to the life of the proponents of the three great philosophies – Advaita, Vishistadvaita and Dvaita.

Sri Adi Sankara Bhagavatpada expounded the greatest Truth indeed in the clearest manner possible. There is absolutely no doubt about it. But has that philosophy, by itself elevated the common man to that level of spiritually? We see that today, such a great philosophy has been reduced to merely the level of a great intellectual feast in the forums of the learned. Knowledge has not been transformed into real experience.

Sri Ramanujacharya, the great avatar who gave the noble Vishitadvaita philosophy advocated the path of temple worship. He formulated a beautiful scheme for the worship in the temples and devotional practices. Unfortunately the sad state of the present day is that places of worship have mostly become venues of thriving businesses. Much of his philosophical teachings are now being followed in letter, but not in spirit.

Sri Madhwacharya bestowed the Dvaita philosophy upon mankind. A majority of the followers of this philosophy have unfortunately lost sight of the core principles completely and have lost themselves in futile observance of orthodoxy.

Sri Vallabhacharya dedicated his life to preaching Srimad Bhagavatam. But that did not touch the common man as well.

Analyzing so, we still find the our question unanswered, Which is that incarnation that touches everyone? The One Avatar whose teachings are relevant in the daily life of everyone today? The One whose way of life is a perfect example to elevate everyone in this Age – from the most capable to the least capable?

It is undoubtedly the divine Avatar of Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu who taught the simplest and most effective path of Nama Kirtan to the world. Not only did he boldly proclaim this path, but he also lived by it throughout his life and showed the world the potency of the Divine Name.

A path that is the most practical and feasible to the common man; a path that does not distinguish people based on differences; a path that has absolutely no scope for any negative impact; a path that can be treaded upon by anyone, anytime and anywhere; a path that guarantees worldly comforts as well as the Supreme state of Ultimate Bliss.

Is it not most appropriate to call the Chaitanya avatar

"The most apt Avatar for this Age"?
