General definition (in Hinduism)

Source: New World Encyclopedia: Nimbarka

Śrī Nimbārkācārya (or simply Nimbārka, निम्बार्क) is believed to be the incarnation of the Sudarśana Chakra (the Discus weapon of Śrī Kṛṣṇa ), Shri Sakhi Ranga Devi, Shri Tosha Sakha, a cow named Ghusara, a stick for herding cows, the luster of the limbs of Shrimati Radharani, and the nose ring of Srimati Radharani.

In the Naimiṣa Kaṇḍa of the Bhaviṣya Purāṇa the following is recorded:

At the end of Tretā Yuga, the Brāhmaṇas (Brahmins), being afraid of the Asuras [atheists], prayed to Lord Hari. They also prayed to Brahmā (brahma) who himself prayed to Lord Hari again. Then the Lord summoned his own Sudarśana Cakra-a part of Himself- and commanded him to descend on earth to revive and teach the Vaiṣṇava Dharma (see Vaishnavism) which was waning and which he could learn from Nārada, and spread it all around.
