The story of King Bali and Goddess Lakshmi
There are several mythological stories we all know, King Bali’s story is one among them. He had an extreme power of invisibility which made him win over almost all the Devas in war. Lord Vishnu had several devotees but the name that comes up first is Prahlada, King Bali’s grandson. Many Devas including and especially Indra was afraid of seeing the rising power of king Bali. He was a very munificent king and famous among people. Hearing all the pleading then Lord Vishnu came to the rescue of Devas and took the Vaaman incarnation to save them from king Bali. Lord Vishnu asked Bali that I want a three-foot space.
King Bali thought that how much land the Brahmin would take, he accepted. Vaman turned into Vishnu and according to the promise he took the earth, sky and the entire universe in 2 sides. There is nothing left to give to him on the third side, he said, “Lord, you should put my feet on my head.” Following which he reached nether lands.
But Lord Vishnu can see his true devotees suffer from newness. Lord Vishnu promised that I will protect you till the next era as a guard when Indra will be crowned as a king. Because of this, Lord Vishnu went away and Mata Lakshmi fell alone.
