Of the ten great incarnations, the fifth one is Vaamana, and the very name indicates One who has a small body. It was in the form of a child (child student in a gurukula) that Vaamana approached the divinely righteous Emperor Mahaabali to beg of him a little land, of the length of his tiny three steps-and the Lord measured in His three steps all the three worlds and thus conquered Mahaabali. He checked (Vamayati) the rising pride of possession in Bali, hence He, in that incarnation as a Vatu, is called Vaamana. The term Vaamana also means worshipful: Him, the Dwarf, sitting in the middle of the heart, all gods adore, so we read in the Kathopanishad (5-3). However, here the emphasis should be upon the meaning short statured because of the contrast it makes with the following name. Vamana pushed the demon Bali to patal lok with His feet, who had gained dominion over the Earth and had chased the Gods from the heavens. The worshipper of Vamana gets immense strength to fight against all odds, evils and enemies. His enemies do not get any place in the complete "Triloka" . He becomes invincible and take on any challenge which comes in his way and emerge out as a winner. He gains confidence and wisdom and is respected and recognized in his sphere of work. This Shila has a white broad band representing Jeneyu of the Brahman Vaman. The small white marking represents Narayana. The worshipper of this Shaligrama is very successful in businesses pertaining to land, reality, Gold, metal, diamonds and precious gems. The worshipper of Vaman gets immense success without being much noticed. Nothing appears impossible to the worshipper to achieve. The Shila is extremely smooth, perfectly shaped, lustrous, small medium sized cold to touch, has flawless impressions.
