A M ,
 I agree, thats why he rides the "White Horse (The Purusha)" upon the "Consumation of the Ages" and the systemic dissolution of the creation and back into the Unity of the ONE Absolute. Revelations makes the same statement because the Avatara Cycle Begins and Ends with the Major Mode ,the 1st and 10th Avatara's, the other eight are Minor presentments that appear during to Cycle of the Ages. Just my personal opinion, all that Maitreya that was, and is discussed is in opposition with the Historic Hindu , Buddhist Doctrine of thousands of years. It would be food for avidya.
