Ramacandra, the seventh avatara

posted in: English 0


Lord Sri #Ramacandra is the seventh avatara of the Dasavatara. Among the twenty-five lila-avataras, Lord Ramacandra is the twentieth avatara. This has been mentioned in the description of Matsya-avatara. The second purusha-avatara, Sri Garbhodakasayi Vishnu, in the form of Pradyumna, is the original source of Matsya, Kurma, Rama, Nrisimha and other lila-avataras. Srila Rupa Gosvami, in his book Laghu-bhagavatamrita, defines Lord Ramacandra as the paravastha (perfect) form.

nrisimha-rama-krishneshu sad-gunyam paripuritam
paravasthas tu te tasya dipad utpanna-dipa-vat
(Padma Purana)
“Lords Nrisimha, Ramacandra and Krishna possess sixty transcendental opulences in full. When lighting many lamps from one original lamp, all the lamps possess the same nature and similarly, although Rama and Nrisimha are expansions of svayam bhagavan sri krishna, all three of them possess sixty qualities in full.”
