In the case of the sages of India, Krishna and Rama and Mahadeva, who were known as Avatars or incarnations of divine personalities, what was it? The divine Personality reflected in them. The numberless great Avatars of whom we read in the traditions of the Hindus have been the manifestations of that reflection. In the case of the Christlike personalities which we find among the saints of ancient times, what was it? It was Christ manifested in their hearts. The inspirations of the Twelve Apostles, the Holy Spirit descending upon them, what was it? Was it not the reflection of Christ himself?
