Title: Yuga Avatara

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! I found following verse in the first chapter of Chaitanya Mangala, which i have difficulties to understand properly. "Generally in the Dvapara-yuga the avatara is dark like Lord Krishna, and bears the name Krishna, but He is only a plenary portion of Krishna."If You could please share with us Your realisations and knowledge regarding this verse. Ė Matus. For the answer click below.

Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:

 

 

 

Both Lord Krishna and Lord Gauranga are the original Supreme Personalities of Godhead, the source of all incarnations (avatari). So they do not appear in every Dvapara and Kali Yugas respectively. They appear only once in 8,640,000,000 years in the 28th Chatur Yuga of the 7th Manu in the day of the Brahma. But in every Dvapara and Kali Yuga, an incarnation of Godhead is required to come to establish the religious principle of self-realization for that particular age. So a partial plenary incarnation known as Yuga Avatara comes in every yuga to establish the Yuga Dharma. Thus in all other Dvapara-yugas in a day of Brahma except one, such a yuga avatara may have a blackish complexion and be known as Shyama or Krishna but He is just a partial incarnation. Similarly in all Kali Yugas except one in a day of Brahma, the Kali Yuga incarnation may be golden in complexion and may be known as Gaura but He is not Lord Gauranga who is directly Shri Shri Radha-Krishna combined.
