Avatar’s crucifixion

The Avatar has to incur upon himself the infinite burden of “worries” of the entire suffering world, while working in the world for the spiritual upliftment of humanity. This suffering of people, steeped in the darkness of ignorance, becomes the Avatar’s suffering. This is his crucifixion. The Avatar is crucified every moment of his life on earth.

But, with this infinite suffering which he has to take upon himself, he also has the infinite bliss of the Perfect State, which he eternally experiences. Otherwise, it would be utterly impossible, and he would be literally crushed under the burden of such suffering from all sides. If an ordinary man, however great, were to [feel] even a thousandth part of the Avatar’s suffering, he would go mad! The Avatar has to bear this burden to lighten the load of the suffering of the world.
