On this day of Bali paadyami, Bali chakravarthi is being rememebred by everyone by the blessings of God Vamana. He was a very powerful demon of those days. There was peace,prosperity & plenty in his kingdom.The entire world was under his control. His ambition grew more & more.He wanted to capture IndraLoka, the place of Heaven ruled by Indra.
Bali Chakravarthi wished to have the seat of Indra(INDRA PADAVI) permanently. His guru Shuklacharya advised him to perform Ashwamedha Yaaga. As he had already completed 99 Ashwamedha Yaagas, the 100th Ashwamedha Yaaga will be a way to capture Indra Loka
Indra sought the help of Sri Mahavishnu to get rid off from being dethroned by Bali Chakravarthi. Add to this, Indra’s mother also performed penance to help his son.
Lord Vishnu, being pleased with the penances of Bali Chakravarthi & his mother, he took the Avatara of Vamana, the dwarf. Being the incarnation of Vishnu, he took birth as the son of Adithi.
Lord Vishnu grew up fast & had his Upanayanam. He went to king Bali,while performing the 100th Ashwamedha Yaaga.
Bali Chakravarthi, on seeing the handsome face of Vamana did Sastanga Namaskaaram, by praying Him to take the Daana (Gift) from him,by promising that he would give anything, He asks.
Vamana denied all the valuable things & praised Bali Chakravarthi for his honest rule by giving rememberance that his great grand father Prahladha was a staunch Vishnu Bhaktha.He also praised Hiranyakashipu & Hiranyaksha about their power & determination.
Vamana just asked 3 steps of land, that would be measured by Himself. Bali was surprised because His 3 small steps would be a meager Daana-Dharma.
Bali Chakravarthi’s Guru, Shuklacharya realised that the little brahmin is no other than Lord Vishnu. He advisd Bali not to agree for giving this Daana because he is no other than Lord Vishnu, who has come in the Avatara of Vamana to capture everything he had. Bali, being inspired in fulfilling the 3 steps of Daana by Lord Vishnu flatly refused to hear his Guru’s advice.Guru Shuklacharya being angry, cursed his devotee Bali Chakravarthi to loose everything.
Bali Chakravarthi did Sankalpa to give the 3 steps of Land to Vamana. Vamana became huge by taking the Avatara of Trivikrama Roopa. Vamana covered the whole of earth in his 1st step. In his 2nd step, he covered the whole of sky. There was no place for the 3 step. Immediately, King Bali Chakravarthi requested Vamana to put his 3rd step on his head.Vamana by doing so, he sent Bali Chakravarthi to Paathalaloka (Underworld) by putting his 3rd step on the head of Vamana.
Lord Vamana gave the boon that he will be empowered to rule the entire universe for one day in every year & that memorable Day will be called as the day of ” BALI PAADYAMI” KARTHIKA SHUDDHA PAADYA.
On this auspicious day of Bali Paadyami, I wish you all “Happy Deepavali” with Health, Wealth & Happiness.
ツ Today, we celebrate Deepavali as a symbol of victory over darkness. It is observed by all the inhabitants of Ayodhya. Sri Ramachadrar took the charge from his brother Bharatha and sat on the throne. This day was observed as Deepavali Function.
Today evening all will celebrate the pooja of Lakshmi including myself to bless abundance of wealth to one & all, since Lakshmi is the Goddess of wealth and prosperity.

ツ My Hearty Deepavali Greetings to all the Well Wishers ツ
By the grace of God, I have been awarded the second prize in the Inter college Music competition, on the day of
“SUVARNA KARNATAKA RAJYOTSAVA DAY”
ツ I have staunch belief in GOD. Here, Lord Krishna advices everybody to observe “NISHKAMAKARMA” i.e., one should not have any desire in doing the legitimate KARMA. Here, I would like to take my own example in this aspect. I have joined MBA by making my #PARENTS to spend their hard earned money for their only one daughter (#MYSELF) to become the MASTER OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION. The first letter “M” itself indicates that I should become the Master in Business Management by learning the TRICK OF THE TRADE to grab money from nook & corner. This concludes that I am not having even a bit of “NISHKAMAKARMA”.
Immediately after getting the degree of MBA, I pray God to Master my mind to serve the poor public at large as “JANA SEVA” like the Angel Florence Nightingale who has taken birth on earth in doing service for the betterment of wounded soldiers right round the clock in the battle field at the dead of night also, holding an Harikane lamp in one hand & serving the wounded soldiers in the battle field in the other hand without least expectation for her active minded lovely service.
This good activity in serving the public is not even possible by GOD, who has given birth to us.
This clearly shows that every one, rich or poor or in-power should have the aim to observe “Nishkamakarma” like Florence Nightingale, the heavenly angel on earth to achieve peace, prosperity & plenty of heavenly happiness on earth.
By doing so, we can concur “RAMARAJYA” in the whole world.
In concluding this, I pray God to bless everyone NISHKAMAKARMA ツ
ツ After leaving the college, I happened to pass through #Sayyaji_Rao_Road taking a link to #DD_Urs_Road in the ensuing Dasara during which time, the Mysore City, I loved was decorated like a beautiful angel Here it was alarming to pass in this road filled with crowded rush.
