Small Doubt on DashavatAra.

Dear Bhaktas,
I have a small doubt. Please help me by clearing my doubt.

In the line of the Dasha AvatAram, Balarama comes after Krishna. But
during the end of the MahabharatA, Balarama goes back into the Ocean in
the form of a serpent. I was told the Balarama as well as Lakshmana are
the incarnations of Adi Sesha. If this is true, then how can the 9th
Avatar ( Balarama) be of Lord Vishnu's AvatarA. Some texts say the 9th
Avatara after Krishna-vatara is the Buddha-vatara.

NamO Narayana,

Malolan Cadambi
