God is said to be formless; that is to say, He can assume or adopt any form. He has endless forms. Then, in what form does He grant a clear vision to the devotee? He manifests in the form that the devotee yearns for, the form which will grant him the highest satisfaction. These forms are His avatars. God does not limit Himself when He thus manifests; He is fully present in every such avatar; He manifests Himself with His full glory in every avatar.
