        • Also, yesterday i was listening Shiva Katha on Aastha Channel which is telecasted at 10 am.So,i watched and heard with all ears that 'Dwarkadish Krishna,in Dwaparyug,prayed to Parvatiji that next time i would like to take birth in a family who is devotee of Shiva and are pure-hearted & sacred and Parvatiji accepted Dwarkadish Krishna's wish.'

          So,after listening , my mind started to run. And I analysed that Veera Brahmendra Swami,who was the incarnation of Lord Vishnu, took birth in a Shiva devotee family in 12th-13th century.

          And his next avatar as Kalki would happen in a Vishnu Devotee family as written in Srimad Bhagwat Maha Puran 12:2:18


          • CC Madhya 6.169

            jīvera nistāra lāgi’ sūtra kaila vyāsa
            māyāvādi-bhāṣya śunile haya sarva-nāśa

            Translation: Śrīla Vyāsadeva presented the Vedānta philosophy for the deliverance of conditioned souls, but if one hears the commentary of Śaṅkarācārya, everything is spoiled.

            "To describe a man as an incarnation of God, or Nārāyaṇa, and at the same time present him as poverty-stricken is contradictory, and it is the greatest offense. The Māyāvādī philosophers, engaged in the missionary work of spoiling the Vedic culture by preaching that everyone is God, describe a poverty-stricken man as daridra-nārāyaṇa, or "poor Nārāyaṇa." Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu never accepted such foolish and unauthorized ideas. He strictly warned, māyāvādi-bhāṣya śunile haya sarva-nāśa:  "Anyone who follows the principles of Māyāvāda philosophy is certainly doomed." Such a fool needs to be reformed by punishment." - Srila Prabhupada

              Service to poor as service to Lord is called daridra Narayana, therefore it doesn't mean that Lord is a poor.

              Every Vaishnava should do service to helpless living beings :

              SB 9.21.10Thereafter, only the drinking water remained, and there was only enough to satisfy one person, but when the King was just about to drink it, a caṇḍāla appeared and said, “O King, although I am lowborn, kindly give me some drinking water.”

              SB 9.21.11Aggrieved at hearing the pitiable words of the poor fatigued caṇḍāla, Mahārāja Rantideva spoke the following nectarean words.
              SB 9.21.12I do not pray to the Supreme Personality of Godhead for the eight perfections of mystic yoga, nor for salvation from repeated birth and death. I want only to stay among all the living entities and suffer all distresses on their behalf, so that they may be freed from suffering.
              SB 9.21.13By offering my water to maintain the life of this poor caṇḍāla, who is struggling to live, I have been freed from all hunger, thirst, fatigue, trembling of the body, moroseness, distress, lamentation and illusion.



              Lord Shiva also knows that service to the helpless ones is the service which can please the Lord :

              SB 8.7.40My dear gentle wife Bhavānī, when one performs benevolent activities for others, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Hari, is very pleased. And when the Lord is pleased, I am also pleased, along with all other living creatures. Therefore, let me drink this poison, for all the living entities may thus become happy because of me.



              I hope the misunderstanding in association of vaishnavas  about ''daridra Narayana'' is cleared now.

              Daridra Narayana
              Daridra Narayana or Daridranarayana or Daridra Narayan is an axiom enunciated by the late-19th century Indian sage Swami Vivekananda, espousing that…
    • And also if BALARAM is an avatar of Lord , then what about LAXMAN
