The Garuda Purana and the Bhagavata Purana both mention twenty-two, with a proviso in the latter, that the incarnations of Vishnu are many; the Matsya Purana, on the other hand, refers to twelve incarnations. However, it is generally accepted that there are ten incarnations of Vishnu. Of these ten universally accepted Avatars, nine are said to have manifested themselves (each at a different time and era) while the tenth is yet to appear in this world. Each manifestation has a related legend which essentially demonstrates the restoration of righteousness and Dharma in the world, through the divine intervention of Vishnu.
In Treta Yuga The two incarnations are:
6. PARASHURAM Avatar: (end of Satya Yuga or in the Treta Yuga as per different scholars). Vishnu took birth as a Brahman (priest) in this Avatar to free the Brahmans from the depredations of the Kshatriyas (warrior caste) who had become arrogant oppressors of the Brahmans. His name derives from the axe-like weapon (Parsu) he carried - a gift from Shiva. He annihilated the Kshatriyas in battles twenty-one times. Parashuram and Rama, the seventh Avatar, are generally depicted as living at the same time even though the former is said to have appeared in this world before Rama.
7. RAMA Avatar: (Treta Yuga). Vishnu, in this Avatar, incarnates himself as Rama, the Kshatriya king central to the Ramayana epic. By far one of the most popular heroes (along with Krishna) of Hindu mythology, Rama exemplifies the ideal, son, king, father and man. The legend, on the one hand, is a romantic exploit of good triumphing over evil (the slaying of Ravana, the demon-king, by Rama). On another plane, it is a complex dissertation on love, war, brotherhood, fidelity, societal customs and traditions etc.

Lord Ramachandra's life come from the Ramayana, one of the two great epics of India. Born as the eldest son of Kausalya and Dasharatha, king of Ayodhya, Rama is referred to within Hinduism as Maryada Purushottama, literally the Perfect Man or Lord of Self-Control or Lord of Virtue. Rama is the husband of Sita, whom Hindus consider to be an avatar of Lakshmi and the embodiment of perfect womanhood.
Rama's life and journey is one of perfect adherence to dharma despite harsh tests of life and time. He is pictured as the ideal man and the perfect human. For the sake of his father's honour, Rama abandons his claim to Kosala's throne to serve an exile of fourteen years in the forest. His wife Sita and brother Lakshmana, being unable to live without Rama, decide to join him, and all three spend the fourteen years in exile together. This leads to the kidnapping of Sita by Ravana, the Rakshasa (Asura) monarch of Lanka. After a long and arduous search that tests his personal strength and virtue, Rama fights a colossal war against Ravana's armies. In a war of powerful and magical beings, greatly destructive weaponry and battles, Rama slays Ravana in battle and liberates his wife. Having completed his exile, Rama returns to be crowned king in Ayodhya (the capital of his kingdom) and eventually becomes emperor, after which he reigns for eleven thousand years – an era of perfect happiness, peace, prosperity and justice known as Rama Rajya.
