Ten Prominent Incarnations of Lord Vishnu
Ten Prominent Incarnations of Lord Vishnu
Description
Preface

Through this book, we are trying to understand and explain the glory and majestic powers of Lord Vishnu and the purpose of his incarnations. We hope the lofty ideals enshrined in this book serve as guiding lights for the people.

Vishnu’s ten incarnations states that the Divine Power manifested itself in the form of Lord Vishnu and embarked upon the task of creating the universe. Whenever and wherever evil manifested itself on the Earth, Lord Vishnu incarnated himself in different forms in order to eradicate the evil forces. For instance, to protect his devotee Prahlada form his father Hiranyakashyap’s demonic clutches, Lord Vishnu incarnated himself as Narashimha, the Man-Lion. To protect the Earth form the powerful Ravana, Lord Vishnu incarnated himself in the form of Lord Rama. He incarnated himself as Lord Krishna to kill the demon Kansa. He helped the righteous forces of the Pandavas in the battle of Mahabharata. He also gives the Gita Updesh to Arjuna in the great battle of the Mahaabharata.

For our reader’s convenience, Lord Vishnu’s story has been divided into ten episodes. That is the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu. The ten incarnations are as follows-

1. Matsya, the Fish 2. Kurma, the Tortoise 3. Varaha, the Boar 4. Narasimha, the Man-lion 5. Vamana, the Dwarf 6. Parashurama 7. Shri Rama 8. Shri Krishna 9. Lord Buddha 10. Kalki, the Final Destroyer

In today’s era of materialism, these lofty ideals can influence many to follow the noble path of truth, righteousness, honesty and integrity.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
