According to Hindu religion, the 10th avatar or divine incarnation will be
the last one, ending the cycle of four epochs — Sat Yuga, Treta Yuga, Dwapar Yuga and
Kaliyuga. It is this 10th avatar, which will help the
entire mankind reach the zenith of
evolution in its true sense.
According to Vedic philosophy, the human body is composed of seven basic
sheaths: Matter, Life, Mind, Supermind or Gnosis, Bliss, Becoming and Being. Human evolution
has passed through the first four sheaths, leading to man’s current progress. However, man
cannot progress through the last three sheaths – Bliss, Becoming and Being (known in the
Hindu terminology as Sat, Chit and Ananda) — unless he is backed by a divine force. This is
because these three sheaths lie beyond the realm of the physical world into the spirit
world. Prophecies made in the Hindu scriptures say that only the 10th avatar will help
mankind cross the last three layers of consciousness and become divine itself.
