This article is in continuation of a series on Das Avatara. Please read (1) Avatāra and (2) Dasa avatāra Overview before this article to get a complete picture.

Dasa avatāra or ten incarnations
Any list of ten incarnations can be made from the lists of various avatāra of Viṣṇu indicated above. However for identifying the ten principal avatāra of Viṣṇu symbolizing the highest potentate of the ten variables of Jyotiṣa (navagraha and lagna), we need to ensure that they belong to principal list of 22 incarnations or find mention in the Bhagavat Purāṇa. Other factors to consider include-

Guṇa avatāra are not to be selected as they are much above the navagraha and lagna which are in the three modes of sattva, rajas and tamas.

Śiva Tāṇḍava Stotra of Rāvaṇa. This was the stotra which he recited to obtain the Vaidyanātha Jyotirliñga (a.k.a Baijnāth). Rāvaṇa would have become immortal if that jyotirliñga had reached Śrī Lanka. This is the teaching he gave to attain mokṣa finally at the hands of Lord Rāma. This stotra must be recited in the end of the prayers, meditation or pūjā. Students of the Śiva Purāṇa course (ŚIVA Group of Zoran Radosavljevic, 2010) were taught this stotra recitation by Sarbani Rath.

The detailed translation was given in the old Jyotish Digest.
