God Incarnates 

Subba Rao 

“What! There were living Gods in your country?” 

“Yes, we have had God incarnates living among people.” 

“But you already have millions of Gods that are worshipped as 

deities in various forms and shapes to concentrate and focus during 

devotion since praying God without a name, shape or figure is too 

generic and hard to focus, as you say.” 

“True, but there are millions of believers not satisfied with 

deities; they want to worship a living God they can talk and touch.” 

“How a regular person can turn into a living God?” 

“Not everybody is cut out to become a living God, very few, 

just a handful over a period of several centuries were to become living 

Gods; these few were born with spirituality to understand, interpret 

and challenge the current religious doctrines at a very young age and 

start as boy prophets to spread their own interpretation of religion. 

As the size of the believers increase, the momentum gathers more and 

more believers.  Initially, the followers would consider the prophet as 

a representative of God or messiah just interpreting the Holy 

Scriptures; then as the popularity of the messiah grows, the deities of 

various Gods are re removed from the altar, replaced by the idol of the 

prophet. Then the believers would start believing that the messiah is 

an incarnation of real God himself. 

In some cases, the messiah's belief could become a new 

religion altogether for his followers, then the people at large tend to 

believe him as living God. After his death, people would continue to 

worship his idol in a shrine specially built to worship him as God. 

Buddha is a good example; his philosophy became Buddhism and he became 

God incarnate.  To sustain faith and belief in him, once in a while a 

miracle would happen to benefit a well deserved believer.  Over the 

last several centuries very few have reached the status of God 

incarnates from a prophet status.  These incarnates were never 

considered by the public at large as Gods from the ancient belief or 

Hindu mythology (like Krishna or Vishnu), instead they simply reached 

the status of God incarnates (on an ad hoc basis) through their efforts 

in facilitating the common men and women to get in touch with real God 

through devotion.  In other words, as time progress, as the belief 

among people dwindle towards religion and God, these God incarnates 

bring back faith into people. 

Adi  Sankara, Sai Baba of Shirdi, Guru Gobind Singh, Sahajanand 

Swami, Swami Vivekananda, Ramana Maharshi, Aurobindo, Satya Sai Baba 

and few others could fall into the category of God incarnates; spent 

their lives preaching to move the  masses towards spirituality. Perhaps 

in the distant future, centuries from now, these God incarnates could 

join the list of millions of Gods of Hindu mythology through the 

various stages of incarnation or becoming ‘Avataras' of Brahma the 

creator, the one and only God.
