    I have some questions:

    In religious literature, does "Krohn" have any significance in regards to prophets and prophecy?

    What do you know of the Left Hand of God?

    Religious meaning of avatars?

    Dear LensmanZ313,
    I suppose that you are referring to the Sanskrit word and Hindu concept of 'avatar'. The meaning of the Sanskrit word 'avatar' is 'descent'.

    In the Hindu concept 'avatar' (otherwise termed as 'incarnation') refers to the physical manifestation or personification of God, or the 'descent' of God to Earth in physical (bodily) form. Specifically in the Hindu religion, it is believed that Lord Vishnu has manifested in the physical plane 9 times, with the purpose of eradicating evil and establishing righteousness.

    As quoted from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna (9th. avatar of Vishnu) says: "For the protection of the good, for destruction of evil, and for the establishment of righteousness, I come into being from age to age."

    Hindus believe that Lord Vishnu will manifest as an 'avatar' one more time on Earth - as Kalki 'avatar'.
