Vamana asked for three steps of land from King Bali, who agreed to fulfil his demand. He appeared in a giant form, and measured the whole heaven with his first step, entire earth with the second step, and there was no space for the third. King Bali offered his head, for the third step and pleased by his extreme devotion; Lord Vishnu promised to live alongside the king.
