25

In Srimad-Bhagavatam (10.46.31) it is said that Balarama and Krsna are the origin of all living entities and that these two personalities enter into everything. A list of incarnations is given in Srimad-Bhagavatam (1.3), and they are as follows:

(1) Kumaras,
(2) Narada,
(3) Varaha,
(4) Matsya,
(5) Yajna,
(6) Nara-narayana,
(7) Kardami Kapila,
(8) Dattatreya,
(9) Hayasirsa,
(10) Hamsa,
(11) Dhruvapriya or Prsnigarbha,
(12) Rsabha,
(13) Prthu,
(14) Nrsimha,
(15) Kurma,
(16) Dhanvantari,
(17) Mohini,
(18) Vamana,
(19) Bhargava (Parasurama),
(20) Raghavendra,
(21) Vyasa,
(22) Pralambari Balarama,
(23) Krsna,
(24) Buddha
(25) Kalki.

Because almost all of these twenty-five lila-avataras appear in one day of Brahma, which is called a kalpa, they are sometimes called kalpa or lila avataras. Out of these, the incarnation of Hamsa and Mohini are not permanent, but Kapila, Dattatreya, Rsabha, Dhanvantari and Vyasa are five eternal forms, and they are more celebrated. The incarnations of the tortoise Kurma, the fish Matsya, Nara-narayana, Varaha, Hayasirsa, Prsnigarbha, and Balarama are considered to be incarnations of vaibhava.
