Sanatana Dharma Avatara Mela 2019
—The Third Ceremony of the Divine Manifestations—
“Whenever there is a decline in righteousness and an increase in unrighteousness,
at that time I manifest myself on earth.”
—Bhagavad Gita 4:7
“To protect the righteous, to annihilate the wicked,
and to reestablish the principles of Dharma,
I appear on this earth, age after age.”
—Bhagavad Gita 4:8
“There is no duty for me to do in all the three worlds,
nor do I have anything to gain or attain.
Yet, I am engaged in prescribed duties.”
—Bhagavad Gita 3:22
“For if I did not carefully perform the prescribed duties,
all men would follow my path in all respects.”
—Bhagavad Gita 3:23
“If I ceased to perform prescribed actions,
all these worlds would perish.
I would be responsible for the pandemonium that would prevail,
and would thereby destroy the peace of the human race.”
—Bhagavad Gita 3:24
“As ignorant people perform their duties with attachment to the results,
so should the wise act without attachment,
for the sake of leading people on the right path.”
—Bhagavad Gita 3:25
The Sanatana Dharma Avatara Mela ceremony is set to begin at 2pm in Kyoto, which is 1am in New York time. Today is the day that we contemplate upon the existence of the Avatara, with gratitude for their having descended onto this earth to lead us to Eternal Life, our true nature, our true Self—God.
