1. Maitreya: "O sage, are the incarnations of Vishnu, viz. Sri Rama, Sri Krishna etc. endowed with Jeevamsa?
2. Parasara: "O Brahmin, the four incarnations, viz. Rama, Krishna, Narasimha and Varatha are wholly with Paramatmamsa. The other incarnations (than these, out of the ten) have in them Jeevamsa too.
3-4. The Unborn lord has many incarnations. He has incarnated as the planets (Nava Grahas) to bestow on the living beings the results due to their Karmas. He is Janardana. He assumed the auspicious form of Grahas to destroy the demons (evil forces) and sustain the divine beings.
5-7. From the Sun God the incarnation of Rama, from the Moon that of Krishna, from Mars that of Narasimha, from Mercury that of Budha, from Jupiter that of Vamana, from Venus that of Parasu Rama, from Saturn that of Kurma, from Rahu that of Varaha and from Kethu that of Meena occurred. All other incarnations than these also are through the Grahas. The beings with more Paramatmamsa are called divine beings.
8-13. The beings with more Jeevatmamsa are (mortal) beings. The high degree of Paramatmamsa from the Grahas, viz. Sun, etc. did incarnate as Rama, Krishna, etc.. After completing the mission, the Paramatmamsas (of the the respective) Grahas again merge (in the respective) Grahas. The Jeevatma portions from the Grahas take births as human beings and live their lives according to their Karmas and again merge in the Grahas. And at the time of Great Destruction, the Grahas as well merge in the Lord Vishnu. One who knows of all these, will become versed in the knowledge of the past, present, and future. Without a knowledge of astrology these cannot be known. Hence everyone should have a knowledge of Astrology particularly the Brahmin. One who, devoid of astrological knowledge, blames this science will go to the hell called 'Raurava', and will be reborn blind.
