VAMANA

Indian Supreme God

Vishnu in dwarf mode

Evil thingy BALI was planning to take over the whole universe. There was a little dwarf in his court which amused him — and when the cheeky little chappy asked if he could have a little bit of land for his very own, BALI laughed and said he could have as much as he could cover in three strides.

Whoooooosh! The dwarf expanded to unbelievable dimensions. Yes, it was SuperGod VISHNU all the time. And with a Hop, Skip and Jump he had encircled the whole universe.

This left BALI nowhere to go but down — to the Underworld. With KRISHNA’s foot on his head he didn’t argue.
