God incarnated to show the path

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Eknathji says God has favoured this nation in various ways. Natural boundaries, natural bounties have been showered on us. He says : For people not to get lazy God incarnated himself to guide them and this is yet another important aspect.
The people had the feeling of complete safety and had no fear of invasion from any side. The affluent people under such circumstances naturally would get lazy and attached to sensuous pleasures only, remaining ignorant of their true self and also of the Creator. To avoid this, God sent savants after savants, saints after saints. His incarnations and emissaries and not satisfied with all these, He Himself came into this sacred land to awaken men to their true nature, duties and responsibilities. They all delivered the message of duty, what man was ordained to do, what he was expected to perform for the welfare and the final salvation of the individual and of society. Through the Vedas, the most ancient and primal lore on this globe, and the Upanishads, through the Mahabharata and the Ramayana, through the Bhagavad Gita and the manifold compositions of a number of holy saints in all languages, He preached to the people, the true essence of life. He did not send His son or a messenger, but He Himself descended among the masses not only once, but a number of times showing manifold paths to all human beings. He endowed these people with all sorts of bounty and left nothing short whatsoever at all.
