Garura ji,Brahma ji and Narad Muni
Vishnu, preserver of human life is one of
the three gods of the Trimurti. He is a
generous God and known as being ‘Sattvaguna’
(kind and merciful). Vishnu is the only God
of the Trimurti who is reborn whenever there
is a crisis on earth. If ‘Dharma’
(righteousness) is disturbed, Vishnu
descends to earth as an avatar (a human
form) to fight the forces of evil.
The Puranas list the Dasavatars’, ten
avatars, Vishnu took on to sustain the
cosmos. Seen in order, they represent the
evolution of mankind from the fish stage to
These avatars were Matsya (fish), Kurma
(tortoise), Varaha (boar ), Nara-simha
(man-lion), Vamana (dwarf), Parashurama (a
powerful warrior), Rama, Krishna, Buddha and
Kalki (white horse).
A romantic aspect of the myths, is that
whenever Vishnu descends to earth he marries
Lakshmi (his Goddess wife). They are
destined to marry on earth as in heaven.
When Vishnu is Rama,
Lakshmi is born as Sita. As Krishna he
marries her as Rukmani.
