Don’t Accept Rascals as Incarnations: An Incarnation Should Be Confirmed By Scriptures

By His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Srila Prabhupada

The Supreme Personality of Godhead has different varieties of incarnations, including the guna-avatāras, manvantara-avatāras, līlā-avatāras and yuga-avatāras, all of which are described in the śāstras (scriptures). Without reference to the śāstras there can be no question of accepting anyone as an incarnation of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Therefore …grnanti kavayah: the descriptions of various incarnations are accepted by great learned scholars with perfect intelligence. At the present time, especially in India, so many rascals are claiming to be incarnations, and people are being misled. Therefore, the identity of an incarnation should be confirmed by the descriptions of the śāstras and by wonderful activities. As described … by the word mahīyasah, the activities of an incarnation are not ordinary magic or jugglery, but are wonderful activities. Thus any incarnation of the Supreme Personality of Godhead must be supported by the statements of the śāstra and must actually perform wonderful activities.
