In the Varaha Purana, the Supreme Lord declares:
“I will appear in the form of a topmost brahmana and a great devotee of Lord Krishna. At that time I will be the embodiment of unlimited transcendental pastimes, which will be manifested for the protection of all living entities.”
kali-ghora-tamas-channat, sarvan acara-varjitan;
saci-garbhe ca sambhuya, tarayishyami narada.
In the Vamana Purana, the Supreme Lord declares:
“O Narada, in the dense darkness of Kali-yuga arising due to ignorance and indulgence in prohibited activities, I will take birth in Shrimati Sacidevi’s (mother of the universe) womb and deliver the most sinful people from their miserable situation.”
aham eva kvacid brahman, sannyasashritam ashritah;
hari-bhaktim grahayami, kalau papa-hatan naran.
In the Upapuranas, the Supreme Lord Shri Krishna speaks to Vyasadeva:
“O learned brahmana, sometimes I accept the renounced order of life to induce the fallen people of the age of Kali to accept devotional service to the Lord.”*
