The Blessed Lord said:

"Many births have passed for Me and for you also, O Arjuna. I know them all but you know them not, O scorcher of enemies.

Though I am unborn and of imperishable nature, though Lord of all beings, yet remaining in My own nature I take birth through My own power of creation.

Whenever dharma is in decay and adharma flourishes,O Bharata, then I create Myself.

To protect the righteous and destroy the wicked, to establish dharma firmly, I take birth age after age.

My birth and My activity are divine. He who knows this in very essence, on leaving the body is not reborn. He comes to Me, O Arjuna.

Free from attachment, fear and anger, absorbed in Me, taking refuge in Me, purified by the austerity of wisdom, many have come to My Being.

As men approach Me, so do I favour them; in all ways, O Partha, men follow My path."

Bhagavad-Gita Chapter 4:5-16
