About Incarnation (Avatar) of Kalki:
The Sanskrit word Avatar means “Gods coming down from their realm and inhabiting human bodies on earth.” Kalki Avatar is a deity in a long line of ancient Hindu gods who have visited the planet. He is known as the 10th incarnation of Vishnu. Kalki is the light bringer, the bringer of truth, and the destroyer of illusion.
The ten incarnations or ‘Dasa Avatara’ of Lord Vishnu is an extraordinary recording of the evolution of human life and advance in human civilization. In Hindu religion, the three main deities are Lord Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Brahma creates, Vishnu protects and Shiva destroys – three faces of Mother Nature. Lord Vishnu descends on Earth to uphold dharma and to cleanse the Earth of evil. So far, Lord Vishnu has appeared nine times on Earth and the tenth, Kalki, is expected.
The sequence of appearance of Lord Vishnu on Earth is in tune with the evolutionary theory. In fact, the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu is an amazing recording of the advancement of human civilization. All this was recorded by Hindu sages thousands of years before Christ.
Dashavataras of Vishnu:
Dashavatara refers to the ten major incarnation of Lord Vishnu. It is believed that God Vishnu incarnates on the Earth from time to time to eradicate the evil forces, to restore the Dharma and to liberate devotees from the cycle of births and deaths.
The first four incarnations of Lord Vishnu, Matsya, Kurma, Varaha and Narasimha, were in Satya Yuga, the first of the four Yugas. The next three incarnations, Vamana, Parashurama and Rama, were in Treta Yuga, the second of the four Yugas. The next two incarnations, Balarama and Krishna, were in Dwapara Yuga, the third of the four Yugas. The tenth and the last incarnation, Kalki, would happen at the end of Kali Yuga, the last and the final Yuga of four Yuga cycle. Devotees celebrate the birth anniversary of all incarnations of Lord Vishnu. Devotees observe one day fast and worship Lord Vishnu in His incarnated form.
In North Indian list of Dashavatara, Lord Balarama is replaced by Lord Buddha. However in South India, Lord Buddha was never accepted as the incarnation of Lord Vishnu. It should be noted that except Lord Rama, Lord Krishna, Lord Narasimha and Lord Parashurama, the birth anniversaries of Dashavatara are disputed. It has been taken Dharma-Sindhu and Nirnaya–Sindhu as the authority to fix the dates of anniversaries.
When is Kalki Jayanti observed?
Kalki Jayanti is the birth anniversary of Lord Vishnu in coming future. Kalki is the tenth incarnation of Vishnu. According to Vaishnava Calendar fallowed by a few south Indian states, Kalki Jayanti is celebrated in the month of Bhadrapada. Vishnu devotees believe it will take place on the sixth day in the bright fortnight of Shravan month.
In 2014, Kalki Jayanti is on August 1st in North India. It is marked on August 2nd in western parts of India.
The Kalki Jyanti is a unique observance as it celebrates the arrival of Lord Vishnu in future. It is also believed that Kalki Avatar will totally destroy the present world.
Kalki Jayanti is celebrated in Vaishnava temples such as – Tirupati Sri Venkateshwara temple, Sri Rangam Ranganatha swamy temple, Udupi Sri Krishna temple, Guruvayur Sri Krishna temple and Bhadrachalam Sita Ramachandra temple.
Kalki the future avatar of lord Vishnu expected to come riding his white horse and with blazing sword in his hands. At the end of Kali Yuga, he will punish all evil doers in this world, destroy this world supposedly and recreate Satya yuga.
Kalyug Avatar – Lord Kalki
Since the world has gone utterly corrupt with adharmic activities, it is believed the Kalki Avtar will bring an end to the present cycle of the universe and after a span of darkness creation will begin once again. There is also a certain section in Hindu society that believes that the avatar has already taken place. Kalki Purana narrates about the Kalki incarnation of Lord Vishnu. It is said in Bhagavad Purana that he will appear in Sambhala village, in present Orissa.
Lord Kalki is usually depicted riding a horse with a drawn sword. Lightning, thunder, heavy rain and harsh sun are frequently associated with this avatar.
It must be noted here that all the incarnations of Lord Vishnu was not in human form and it is believed that he can appear in any form – unimaginably small to unimaginably big. So what is going to appear in Sambhala Village can be a ‘virus’ that might wipe out the entire human race similar to what happened to Dinosaurs.
