In North India Buddha is considered as the ninth incarnation and Lord Krishna as the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. However Buddha is never considered as an Avatar of Vishnu in South Indian belief. In South India Balarama is considered as the eighth incarnation and Krishna as the ninth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Balarama is considered an incarnation of Vishnu by the greater part of Vaishnava movements. Indeed, even Buddhists don’t think about Buddha as an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.
