Sambhavah: One who manifests in any form to those who sincerely seek Him.

The Supreme Lord manifests Himself at any place and at any time in any form He desires.

Paritraanaaya saadhoonaam Vinaashaaya cha dushkritaam

Dharma Samsthaapanaarthaaya Sambhavaami yuge yuge (BG 4.8)

To deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to reestablish the principles of religion, I Myself appear, millennium after millennium.

There are various kinds of avatāras, such as puruṣāvatāras, guṇāvatāras, līlāvatāras, śakty-āveśa avatāras, manvantara-avatāras and yugāvatāras – all appearing on schedule all over the universe. But Lord Kṛishṇa is the primeval Lord, the fountainhead of all avatāras. Lord Śrī Kṛishṇa descends for the specific purpose of mitigating the anxieties of the pure devotees, who are very anxious to see Him in His original Vṛndāvana pastimes. Therefore, the prime purpose of the Kṛishṇa avatāra is to satisfy His unalloyed devotees.

Chanting the Holy Name, let us pray to the Lord to help us manifest in our hearts true devotion towards Him.
