As per the legends related to Vamana Avatar of Lord Vishnu, Asura king Bali who was well-known for his bravery, uprightness and dedication to god Vishnu, introduced that he’ll carry out Yajna (homa sacrifices) and grant anybody any reward they need throughout the Yajna. Lord Vishnu took the avatar of a dwarf Brahmin known as Vamana and approached Mahabali. The Vamana requested property proper over a chunk of land that measures “three paces”. When Mahabali agreed Vamana grew to huge proportions, metamorphosing into the Trivikrama kind, and coated all the things Mahabali dominated over in simply two paces. For the third tempo, Mahabali provided his personal head to Vishnu. Demon King Bali was pushed to Patala by Lord Vishnu. Nevertheless resulting from generosity of the king Bali, Lord Vishnu granted him a boon that he may return to earth for at some point in a 12 months to be together with his individuals, be worshipped and be a future Indra.
Bali Pratipada commemorates the annual return of King Bali to earth and the victory of Vamana over Mahabali and all asuras.
