Waman Stotram

Waman Stotram
Long back one of my friend had requested for uploading this Waman Stotram. Today, on this auspicious day of Diwali, Bali Pratipada, and 7th November 2010; I am uploading this stotram. There are ten famous incarnations of God Vishnu. Out of ten Waman was born from Aditi; mother of Gods. Aditi was wife of Kashyap Rushi; his second wife was Dipti who was mother of demons. Gods were performing Yadnya when demons defeated them and made all Gods to run away from their kingdom. Aditi; being mother of Gods, could not bear it. Hence as told by God Brahma, she started a ghor (hard) tapas (can be called as worship) of God Vishnu. This stotra was created by her at that time. This stotra is from Shri Mat Bhagwat. God Vishnu pleased by her tapas and the stotra assured her to take birth as her son and defeat demons. The son and incarnation of God Vishnu is called as Waman. Waman defeated demons and their king Bali. After defeat King of demons; Bali raja was given a place in Patala. Bali raja was allowed by God Vishnu to come out of Patala on this auspicious day of Diwali every year i.e. Kartik (Name of the Month) shukla paksha pratipada (start of the New Year). This day is also called as Bali Pratipada. This stotra is in Sanskrit.
1 O! God Vishnu! We like to hear your praise. You are Yagnesha, Yagnya Purusha, and you are always there to help all the people who are in trouble and in miserable state. You always offer blessings to such people. Your feet are very holy and pious to us.
2 You are always in peace. You are creator of Maya still you are very stable and still. You always destroy darkness i.e. false knowledge and lead us to light, enlightenment and true knowledge. Hence I always bow to you.
3 O! God Vishnu! Please bless us with Long life, sound health, prosperity, knowledge, Moksha and Victory over demons. When you are able to give us all the above things; why you can’t bless us with all these things?
Thus here completes this Waman Stotra created by Aditi.
Thought for the Day
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
