Avesa Avatara

(Āveśa Avatāra) (Sk. for “descent by possession). In the Hindu religion an Avatara is a divine incarnation or the descent of God in a tangible form; thus the Sanskrit term Avesa Avatara might be interpreted as a special purpose Avatara where, according to the teaching, a pure person is used for a period by an influx of the Divine Life.
