Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Śrī-bhagavān uvāca. Bhagavān, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Kṛṣṇa, He comes down, avatāra. The Sanskrit word avatāra, avatāra means who comes down from up; coming down, descends. Why does He come? Paritrāṇāya sādhūnāṁ vināśāya ca duṣkṛtām (BG 4.8). There are two classes of men—one is sādhu and another is miscreant. Sādhu means devotees of the Lord, and miscreant means always committing sinful activities. That's all. So there are two classes of men anywhere you go within this material world. One is called demigod or devotees, and the other is called nondevotee or demon. So Kṛṣṇa comes... Both of them are conditioned, one has become demon and one has become... Of course, devotee's in higher state, he is not conditioned; he is mukta, liberated even in this life. So Kṛṣṇa comes down, He has got two businesses: to reclaim or rescue the devotees and to vanquish the nondevotees."
