The followers of the Sanatan religion worship the Trimurti or the three gods including Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, and Lord Shiva. Among the three gods, Lord Vishu, who is widely known by countless names including Narayana, Hari, and Krishna is believed to be the creator and the preserver of the planet that humans reside in. As per the Hindu scriptures, the creator of the planet, lord Vishu reincarnates in the world of humans every time evil takes charge and spreads havoc and chaos in the land. The creator becomes the preserver and returns to the land of humans as one of them, every time his creations choose the path of destruction. His reincarnations in the human world are called avatars. It is widely believed that Narayan has reincarnated nine times on earth to restore the balance of good and evil. The Hindu scriptures also mention that the last avatar will be born among humans in the 'Kali-yuga' which is the fourth and worst of the four yugas.  The current era is believed to be the closest to the description of Kaliyuga which is filled with conflict and sin.
