what is bypass validation rules in triggers. could anyone please explain it clearly

SonamSonam (Salesforce Developers) 
in Salesforce, users might setup validation rules to help enter good data(complete data) in the system.A record can be inserted in system via  the UI and also programatically.

A trigger can also be used to create a record, in such scenarios - there may be a need to bypass an existing validation rule which might not be a required on when creating this record thru code.

In such situations, you can bypass validation rules using methods discussed in the following links:http://bobbuzzard.blogspot.sg/2011/11/bypass-validation-rules-from-apex.html
