Significance of Vaman Jayanti

Lord Vishnu has many forms, but Vamana is the most important of them as it is the first human avatar of God. He was born to Rishi Kashyapa and his wife Goddess Aditi. Legends state, Lord Vishnu incarnated as Vamana form to restore the reign of Lord Indra on Swargalok or Heaven. King Bali, a devotee of Lord Vishnu had established himself as the king but he was very cruel. His powers threatened even the Gods. When Gods approached Lord Vishnu for help, he took a human form and approached Bali. He secured the lands of Swargloka, Bhuloka and Patalloka from Bali. As per the Hindu Scriptures, if a person worships Lord Vamana, the individual gets free from all kind of sufferings and sins and achieves salvation. Celebrate Lord Vishnu Avatar’s Birth With Wishes, WhatsApp Messages and Greetings.
