Title: Lord Buddha

User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2006-10-01 14:07:00


What mean Buddha?


Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:


Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! A jiva (soul) can also become known as a partial incarnation of the Lord when the soul gets empowered by Lord Gauranga-Krishna to perform a specific function or mission.


This is known as shaktyavesha avatara or an empowered partial incarnation of the Lord. Buddha is described as such a partial empowered incarnation just like Kalki, Parashurama etc. So even though it is written that the Lord will appear it actually means that the Lord potency's partially appears by empowering a specific soul (shakti + aavesha).
