The ten incarnations of Vishnu retold in this fully illustrated and colorful comic book.

The Avatar concept is the very cornerstone of Hindu theology. According to it, the Supreme Power manifests itself in animal or human forms on earth, with the divine mission of cleansing it of the periodically increasing evil.

The Avatars which are considered most significant are ten in number and they form the 'Dasha Avatar'. These ten start with the form of a lowly fish and work up to the noble man, cast in the image of God.

The fanciful find a parallel to Darwin's theory of evolution in the progression of these Avatars.
