Well, yah.. you're correct.. Avatar is a godly being.. i asked my mom and she said the same thing also.. :) Apparently, it has the same meaning and takes on the same word in many diff. languages.. like u said, in sanskrit, Hindi, Punjabi, Tamil and so on.. in Parsi also.. I guess it's because all these languages have a mother language which in Sanskrit.. slowly as religions changed, languages changed too but some words have retained their essence.. :)
