avatAra-pourAñika & dArśanika drishti

(Source: Prahlada Charitamu)

“Vedanta Drishti alone can direct us to look upon Avatara as the Teacher.”

– Pujya Acharya Vachaspati Sri Prem Siddharth ji

“The Bhagavadgita is the direct proof of the intended philosophical view behind the concept of Avatara”, asserts Pujya Acharya. He points out how the gradual disappearance of knowledge-oriented Darshanika Dristi has resulted in limiting the meaning of Avatara to a more materialistic role of saviour or boon giver alone.
