The Esoteric Meaning of the Ten Avataras : - 3.


1. Matsya (Fish) Avatara

As you know the first of the ten Avataras is Matsya (Fish) Avatara.

The fish lives in water, shut out from the two elements that we consider as most important for the preservation of life—pure air and sunlight.

And yet if you liberate the fish from its aquatic prison and place it in life-giving sunshine surrounded by fresh air, it is greatly distressed and would die in a few minutes.

Similarly, the man who is sunk in worldliness, who is worse than a beast, cannot bear the sunlight of godliness and fresh, pure air of divine life.

He revels in his own dark region deprived of all spiritual light.
