The Esoteric Meaning of the Ten Avataras : - 5.



Then comes the Vamana (the Dwarf) Avatara.

The animal nature is completely gone now.

The person is completely human.

But he is greatly limited.

He is a dwarf.

His capacities are greatly limited.

He got himself lodged in such narrow limits that he goes to a king and begs of him three foot-measures of land.

Vamana’s assumption of the universal form suggests to us that the same man is capable Of transcending all limitations and realising his unity with Brahmam.


Next we have the Parasurama Avatara where we have the Man.

Now bestiality is completely shed; and humanity has supervened.

We get three object-lessons from Parasurama’s life.
