Lord Appears as a FIsh and Other Incarnations
Our young writer, Roopmatie Ramatula (R.Govinda) has fabulously penned down simple but deeply immersed accounts of the various incarnations of the Supreme Lord. The accounts of the Ten Incarnations of the Lord has been glorified by saintly personalities since the beginning of time. The saintly Jayadeva Goswami, the author of the Gita Govinda, that describes the intimate pastimes of the Supreme Lord Krishna with His loving devotees of Vrindavan, began his descriptions with the rendering of soulful verses in prayerful to the ten incarnations of the Lord. These verses are song daily in most traditional temples in India.
Lord Krishna’s incarnations remain fresh in people’s minds even though thousands and millions of years have passed since His descent. He appeared each time to save His devotees and reestablish religious principles. The Vedas, of which Srimad Bhagavatam is the cream, is filled with accounts of the various principal incarnations as well as periodic incarnations. These accounts reveal a culture of kings and demons, sages and non-believers, and the Lord and His devotees. Each time the Lord incarnates He does so with splendor, showing Himself to be the Supreme Person, even though He makes a dramatic display of His complete opulences, whether He be in the form of a fish or a human. A devotee of Krishna, although hearing these activities repeatedly, never tires of hearing them and the narrations always remain fresh.
Though the target audience for this book are the young readers, but the adults will also find this book delightful reading and spiritually elevating.
