VAMANA AVATAR

The fifth of the 10 incarnations (avatars) of the Hindu god Vishnu

We have heard about Vamana, the fifth of the 10 incarnations (avatars) of the Hindu god Vishnu, the #preserver of the #Universe.
:
Vamana made his dwarf appearance to defeat the demon king #Bali. He has defeated the Gods and ruled the entire universe. To create balance in the Universe, one day Vamana visited the court of Bali and begged of him as much land as he could step over in three paces.
:
The king mocked the dwarf not knowing the #truth and laughingly granted the request. Assuming a mega gigantic form, Vishnu took three strides, with which he measured out the three worlds: earth, heaven, and the space between them.
:
:
As there was nowhere left to go, the demon king lowered his head and suggested Vamana place his foot on it for the promised third step.
:
Vamana was pleased with the King and with the pressure of his foot sent Bali down below to rule the netherworld.
:
Vishnu in this form is often identified as #Trivikrama (“God of the Three Strides”).
:
He teaches us not to judge people on physical attributes and demean any living being.
