The Bhagavata Puranadefines that Vishnu derived as the Vamana avatar toward restoring the authority of India above the paradises, as it had been taken through Mahabali, a generous Acura King. Bali was a great-grandson of Hiranyakshipu, grandson of Prahlada.

Even, however, he became king, he became pretentious of his actions and forgot that the great is above him.

He walked from heaven toward earth with the first pace, from earth toward the netherworld through the second. Having leftward nothing else to proffer, for his third plus final step, King Bali bent down in front of the Vamanaunderstanding that he was none additional than his Lord Vishnu plus asked him toward place the third feet as this was the single thing that belonged toward him.
Vamana then took the third step as well as therefore upraised him to Suthala, the ultimate form of heaven. Though, looking at his kindness and piety, Vamana on the appeal of Bali, gave him consent to visit the world once a year to confirm that his crowds are well off plus happy. The Onam centenary is a festivity of friendly Mahabali home toward his lost realm. Throughout this festival, attractive floral garlands are made of each house and boat races are believed through Kerala. A twenty-one-course banquet is the most significant portion of the Onam carnival.
In venerating Mahabalias as well as his ancestor Prahlada, he approved dominion of Patiala, the netherworld. Several texts moreover report that Vamana did not phase into the netherworld, and in its place gave its decree to Bali. In huge form, Vamana is recognized as Trivikrama.
