atharva-vede (Third Kanda, Brahma-vibhaga)
(i) ito ’ham krita-sannyaso ’vatarishyami sa-guno nirvedo nishkamo bhu-girbanas tira-stho ’lakanandayah kalau catuh-sahasrabdhopari panca-sahasrabhyantare gaura-varno dirghangah sarva-lakshana-yukta isvara-prarthito nija-rasasvado bhakta-rupo misrakhyo vidita-yogah syam.
In the Atharva Veda, the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself says:
“Towards the end of the period between four-thousand to five-thousand years in Kali-yuga, I will descend on the earth as a golden-complexioned saintly brahmana in a place by the Ganges’ shore and later become the crest-jewel of all sannyasis, exhibiting all My transcendental qualities including supreme renunciation and complete detachment from material desires. I will display all the thirty-two bodily symptoms of a great personality with my arms extending to my knees. I will become my own devotee, very advanced in bhakti-yoga and teach the worship of Lord Krishna (Myself) by the chanting of My own holy names and relishing the mellows of My own devotional service. At that time only My most confidential devotees will be able to understand Me.”

(ii) “visvambhara visvena ma bharasa pahi svaha.”
“O Lord Visvambhara, the upholder of the universe, please preserve me by sustaining the universe.”
atharva-veda-purusha-bodiny-upanishadi (6th Prapathaka)
saptame gaura-varna-vishnor ity anena sva-saktya caikyam etya prante pratar avatirya saha dvaih svam anusikshayati.
In the Purusha-bodini Upanisad- Atharva-veda it is said:
“In the seventh manvantara (Vaivasvata Manu), the Supreme Personality of Godhead Shri Gaura-Vishnu will accept a golden complexion due to attaining oneness with His pleasure potency Shrimati Radhika and descend on this earth with all His multifarious potencies in the beginning of the Kali-yuga of the twenty-eighth catur-yuga, accompanied by His own eternal associates to teach the chanting of His own holy names in the form of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra.”
