The philosophy behind Divine incarnations.

Updated on September 19, 2011

Why God incarnate?

Before writing more about Saibaba, it is vital to know, "Why God need to incarnate? This philosophy of 'incarnation' is accepted in the texts and scriptures of Hinduism. The great epics, Ramayana and Mahabarath depicts about the two major incarnations of God. They are Lord Rama and Sri Krishna. In Hindu philosophy, the different ages are called "Yuga". Each such yuga span a period of multiples of 432000 human years. Sri Rama was born approximately 3 x 432000 years ago. Sri Krishna was born around 432000 years before the commencement of Kaliyuga, the present period. It is mind boggling figures. Our anthropologists and astronomers calculate the age of earth as several billion years. In fact, after completion of 43,20,000 years known as chaturyuga(four yuga cycles), the world and the creations are completely annihilated. They merge back in the primordial principle which was the cause of creation. In each and every Yuga, God first send saints and sages to guide the people towards moral living. When things become unruly, He sends prophets. They are born in different places in the world and enable the people to follow certain Divine Commands. One such incarnation is Jesus Christ. In Islam, Prophet Mohammad took birth and guided the people there. Likewise Guru Nanak guided the people of Punjab. Lord Buddha was born near Nepal and he has transformed many people to follow the tenets of Buddhism. Many religions were founded by different Religious leaders in different parts of the world. India was practicing from ancient periods, certain traditional worship of Nature like the Sun, Ocean, Fire,Trees and even snakes. They saw God in all the things of the world. With the advent of Adhi Sankara, a great monk and the follower of Advaita(Non-dual philosophy), the recital of Veda stanzas started flourishing. Vedas are treasure house of knowledge and it dealt with all aspects of human life. People, cattle and grains flourished during the period of Veda recitations. There were timely rains, and ample production of grains and pulses. Cattle flourished.
