Answer :  Balichakravarthi, the grand son of Prahladarajaru had taken the control of Indra loka and Devendra had lost his power.  He went to Srihari for restoring his powers to get it back from Bali Chakrivarthi.   At the same time, Aditi also did the tapassu to Srihari seeking the avatara of Srihari as her son.   She did the Payovratha to get Srihari as her son.  Pleased with her vratha, Srihari came in as Vamana.

5.  How Vamana went to Bali Chakravarthi ?

Answer : Bali Chakravarthi was doing Ashwamedha yaaga to get permanent Indra Power.  At that time Srihari came there as a Five year Brahmachaari, with Upaveeta, Uttareeya made of Krishnaanjina, with smiling face.

Answer :  Even though Bali Chakravarthi is born in the daithya vamsha, he is a saatvika.  Acharya Madhwa has mentioned that there was Asuravesha in him,  and he had jeevadwavyaavesha, which made him to snatch Indra Padavi.  When Vamana came there he did the samarpana of entire thing of whatever he had.  Before that he expressed his Aham.

9.  What made Srihari to incarnate himself as Vamana?

Balichakravarthi in his thrust for power of Devendra, was doing the 100th Ashwamedha yagna.  He had already completed 99 before that.  If he completes the 100th yagna, he would be eligible for the post of Devendra.  The present Indra is Purandara.   When Devataas lost their power to Balichakravarthi, Adithi, the mother of Devataas requested sage Kashyapa to get a son who can bring back the powers to Devataas from Daithyaas.

Kashyapa Rushi told Aditi to do Payovratha for one year, which she did successfully.  As a result of her Jnaana, bhakthi, vairagya, was born Vamana, on Bhadrapada Shudda Dwadashi in Shravana Nakshatra, and Abhijin Muhoortha.  This particular dwadashi is also called as Vijaya Tithi.  Due to the mahimaas of the vratha, Aditi Devi had the boon of Bhagavat darshana, and had the privilege of becoming the mother of Srihari.

–  ನಮೋ ಭಗವತೇ ತಸ್ಮೈ ಸರ್ವತ: ಪರಮಾಯ ತೇ |

–  नमो भगवते तस्मै सर्वत: परमाय ते ।

सर्वप्राणिहृदिस्थाय वामनाय नमो नम:॥

We salute Vamana roopi paramathma who has all gunaas unlimited and as such he is sarvottama.  He is there in the hearts of all – सर्वप्राणिहृदिस्थाय and he is the devata for Kathakopanishad.

 

 

 

 

How Vamana appeared after his incarnation ?

At the time of birth itself, Vamana was having Chaturbhuja, Shanka, Chakra, Gada, Padma.  He was neelameghashyama and was having Srivatsa Lanchana.  It proves that he is sarvatantra swatantra, he does not have birth.

Vamana – after his incarnation – Aditi-Kashyaparu did the Jatakarma Samskara.  Surya did the Gayatri Mantropadesha.  Bruhaspatyacharyaru gave Yagnopaveeta, kashyaparu gave the “darbe Ududaara”,  Bhoodevi the Krishnajina, Chandra gave Muttugada Danda (palasha).  Aditi gave him koupeena.  Brahma gave Kamandalu, saptarshees gave darbe, saraswathi the aksharamale. , Kubera Bhikshapatre, annapoorne gave the first bhikshe.

Vamana after Upanayana, did the Agnikaarya and after this Vamana went to Balichakravarthi’ s Yagna Shaale in Brukukutsa kshetra, near Narmada River north bank.

Bali Chakravarthy on seeing the Baala Brahmachari Vamana, did the paadapooja of the brahmachari and asked him what he wanted? the land, Gold, Mrustanna? marriage, Elephants, Horses, Chariot, etc?

Vamana just asked him to give three steps of Vamana.   Bali was surprised for having asked that little daana.  Vamana was satisfied with three steps only.   Bali agreed.  Vamana in his first step occupied the entire bhoomandala, and in the second he occupied the sky.   No place was left to place the third.  Asked Bali where shall he keep the third?  Bali replied to put on his head.  That is how Vamana recovered for Devendra all the lost properties from Bali and gave it to Devategalu.

One must note that Bali Chakravarthi was well aware of the roopa of Vamana before granting daana.  His guru Shukracharya advised well in advance about the incarnation of Srihari as Vamana and that he is not an ordinary boy.  Bali is fully aware and fully conscious of the fact and offered the daana.

As per Pancharatragama – Nitya smarana Vidhanam says as follows :-
दधिमध्ये वामनं तु घृते कृष्णं तु संस्मरेत् ।
वाराहं मृत्तिकास्नाने ह्युपेंद्रं वस्त्रधारणे ।
ದಧಿಮಧ್ಯೇ ವಾಮನಂ ತು ಘೃತೇ ಕೃಷ್ಣಂ ತು ಸಂಸ್ಮರೇತ್ |
ವಾರಾಹಂ ಮೃತ್ತಿಕಾಸ್ನಾನೇ ಹ್ಯುಪೇಂದ್ರಂ ವಸ್ತ್ರಧಾರಣೇ |

While churning curd Vamana smarana to be done, while preparing Ghee Krishna smarana to be done; while doing mruttika snaana varaha smarana to be done; while wearing clothes do smarana of Upendra.

Mahima of Vamana and his avatara can be found in many puranaas, granthas, teekas, etc.

Srimannarayana took a beautiful roopa as “Vamana”.  By his intelligence, he created wonders for Bali and other daithyaas  By taking three steps as daana, he sent Bali to Rasatala looka and re-established Indra as the King of Swarga.

This shloka brings the mahima of Vamana who was shining and glittering with the rays of sun doing seva to Srihari.  After Bali agreed for giving daana as three steps, Vamana who was in a tiny form took the huge roopa of Trivikrama.  He measured the Universe indicating all belongs to him only, whether it is sun, moon, devataas, and the entire world.

Vamana is the bestower of jnana and he is the antaryami for all jeevas.   He is the establisher of all dharmas and the culture.  He only can give us jnaana, bhakti, vairagya.  With Koorma Roopa he lifted and supported the universe.  You also support the pralaya.  He is the the shelter for muktha jeevas.  You can only be attracted by pure devotion and bhakthi.  Through your brahmachari roopi you please with Prahlada, and Bali and took back all the wealth of supreme daithya Bali Chakravarthi.  Vamana took his avatara for fulfilling devakarya, pleased Devendra and other devatas.  Vamana roopi paramathma won over Daithya Bali and saved him and destroyed the victorious daithyas and protected the world.
One thing to be noted while calling Bali as daithya – There was a avesha of daithya in Bali.  Infact Bali is haribhaktha.  He has praised Srihari’s vamana roopa, but in the middle due to asuravesha, he did the dwesha of devataas.

Yadavaryaru described about Vamanavatara as follows –

–   Srihari took the roopa of Vamana, as a brahmachari child and came to the yajnashala of Balichakravarthi, who had snatched the Devendra’s kingdom.  Vamana wears the “vajra” and he is the destroyer of power.    He is the “Asuravanchaka” – one who deceives the wicked asuras, by asking as daana three steps.  Vamana bestows all Mangala to all satwic souls and as he is vamanesha.   Here one must note that even though Vamana has deceived asuraas by asking the land – one must not forget that he has not told a lie.  The real roopa of Srihari was disclosed by Shukracharya, the guru of Bali, before he could give the daana of land.
