An Avatar assumes the form that is beneficial to and within the reach of human beings, for man cannot normally comprehend the Formless and Attributeless Absolute. But, unfortunately, even when the Form Absolute assumes a form, there are persons who, impelled by their own attitudes, attribute their own human foibles to the avatar. "When He has the same form as ours, the same physical features, and eats, talks and moves about like any of us, what is the difference between the avatar and ourselves?" they ask. Because of this narrow-minded approach, these persons distance themselves from the Divine.
