यदा यदा हि धर्मस्य, ग्लानिर्भवति भारत।
अभयुत्थानमधर्मस्य तदात्मानं सृजाम्यहम्।।
परित्राणाय साधुनां विनाशाय च दुष्कृताम।
धर्म संस्थापनाथार्य सम्भवामि युगे युगे।।
|Shri Ram's incarnation installed dharm i.e. righteousness|
In Tretayug, when Raavarn's dread was on its extreme, Bhagwan Vishnu incarnated as Shri Ram and re-installed dharm, disseminating truth and serenity. Talking about Ramayan and other ancient legends, there have been confusions with regards to the concept of avatar. Whenever we converse about Ramavtar, people get in perplexity about Bhagwan Vishnu's incarnating and the devas fathering sons. Unlike Shri Ram; Bali, Sugreeve and others were not avatars but sons of the devtas. So, what's the difference? We will try to analyze it today, but first we must know the meaning of Avatar.

So what actually happened - Narsingh was calmed by Prahlaad(Hiranyakashapu's son, devotee of Bhagwan Vishnu) and that's it, happy ending.
