ANSA AVATARANSA AVATAR (The incarnation created for a limited purpose) The Lord created the incarnations containing some portions of a god\’s power, who was thus absorbed in duality. They were like ruling kings engrossed in worldly affairs. (Var Gujri M. 3, p. 516) Several Purushas are Ansa Avatars, Who are standing at Thy Court, O Lord! (Sarang M. 5, p. 1236) The Ansa Avatars are the incarnations, who are created mainly for one purpose i.e. the killing of a tyrant for the sake of spreading righteousness. The Ansa Avatarmay not be misunderstood for Hansa Avatar, an incamation of Vislinu in Satyuga (or Kritayuga), who instructed Sanat Kumara, the son of Brahma in order to dispel his ego, because even Brahma could not satisfy his son.
