~Avatar~

Avatar has Sanskrit roots that mean literally to “descend” or “alight.” It can also be translated as “making one’s appearance,” such as in Hinduism where avatar refers to the incarnation of a deity on Earth. For example, the Hindu god, Vishnu, is considered to have taken 10 avatars, meaning that he was born into the world 10 times in different forms.
