10 incarnations of Lord Vishnu starting from top left and continues to the right side

Lord Vishnu is attributed with taking 10 Avatars, the prime and popular among them are Rama and Krishna. Description from cvrajan.hubpages.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images

10 Avatars of Vishnu.the last avatar is Kalki, who will ride a white horse to slay demons in the end times - sound familiar?

Despite the messianic tendencies attributed to him and his avatars (especially Krishna), Vishnu is an interesting deity, mainly due to the idea of him dreaming the universe so that he can manifest himself within it, and his viability as the Order counterpart to Shiva's Chaos, and how they work together rather than clash till the end of time. Some of his avatars also show him to have a viable warrior side and he's associated with water.

Vishnu so trimurti, God is responsible for maintaining the universe.

There is no one like you who is more compassionate and caring. Even great yogis curse if provoked in anger. But you my Saviour, always the most merciful and gentle towards your devotees.

Hindu art: Garbhodakasayi Vishnu and Laksmi

Hindu Art: "Mother Lakshmiji, the goddess of fortune, is well known for always massaging the lotus feet of Lord Narayana. She is an ideal wife because she takes care of Lord Narayana in every detail." -Srila Prabhupada's purport to Srimad Bhagavatam

If our mind is in conflict, not balanced with our body and with the needs of the soul, then there is a fundamental disunity in our life. Only if we have unity within ourselves, we can create unity in the world around us. You can’t give something you don’t have, even if you have all good intentions.

The Lord is easily pleased if you offer anything with a pure heart. If the nondevotional elephant, Gajendra, can obtain His help, why can't we?

On this pin you see the god Vishnu. This is a god that appears in many shapes. He is usually showed with a blue skin color, he has four arms and he drives on a snake Shesha (to rest) and the bird Garuda (for transport).  Vishnu guards the world and intervenes when something dangerous happens.

I hope to appreciate and understand Hinduism, Buddhism, and the Universe, and expand my perspecives and knowledge.
