Some of the best herbs you'll ever smoke. In my opinion, better than Marijuana, and I'm not the only one that thinks so.

It's like a mix between a trip on DXM, and getting high on Marijuana. The best high I've ever had.
Me-- AAAAAY BRUH WE GON SMOKE TONIGHT?
You--YEAHHH MANNN I GOT SOME SWEET HERB
Me--NOOO I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT POT. I'M TALKING ABOUT SOME AVATAR.

1. In Hinduism, and avatar (or avatara) is a deity who descends from heaven to earth to help humanity and restore balance between good and bad during a period of great evil.

2. In the amazing American Nickelodeon TV show Avater: the last airbender (ATLA) created by Mike Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko (called "Bryke" by ATLA fans), an avatar is a person who's able to bend and master all the four elements and thereby keeps balance into the world. ATLA was heavily influenced by Asian cultures, the definition of an avatar in the show is based on and derived from the definition of an avatar in Hinduism.

3. an Avatar in the 2009 James Cameron movie is a Na'vi-human hybrid. Basically, it's a Na'vi (original inhabitants of a fictional planet called "Pandora") who's mentally controlled by a genetically matching human.
1. Krishna is one of the most widely known Hindu avatars.

2. Aang has to master all four elements and defeat the Fire Lord because he is the avatar.

3. Humans created avatars to improve their relations with the Na'vi.

In Dungeons and Dragons
the physical body of an deity, this body is mortal and can be destroyed with a widespread efect of mass destruction. the death of an avatar will not kill the deity controling it, due to the fact that the greater deitys normaly have and control about 5 to 20 avatars at one point in time. though the death of an avatar can weaken a deity.
Deitys have supreme power, but are unable to escape the chains of their immortality.
