Lord Vishnu appeared in front of her. She said I wish that you take birth as my son to end Bali’s threat. Lord Vishnu promised to take birth in Aadhithi’s womb and later he took birth in her womb as Vamana. Vamana means short or dwarf. Vamana Avatar (incarnation) is the first human Avatar of Lord Vishnu. Lord Vamanapushed king Bali to the Pathala or netherworld by keeping his foot on King Bali’shead.
