Vaman – the fifth incarnation of Hindu God, Vishnu.
Vaman is the fifth incarnation of Vishnu. Vishnu was incarnated as a vaman (dwarf) when the universe was taken over by the demon king Mahabali and his fellow asuras (demon). As a dwarf priest, he asked form King Mahabali three paces of land as alms. When Mahabali agreed, Vaman covers earth to brahmalok (heavens) in a single stride. Lord Brahma – the Hindu god of creation – washes his feet with divine water of Brahmaloka.
