This painting is based on ninth and final kind of Bhakti called Aatm- Nivedanam ( self –dedication)basically this means to the renounce of self Ego in front of Him. It is based on famous story from srimad bhagvat purana of Raja Bali- was a demon, the emperor of the whole earth. He was very proud of his power of kingdom so to vanish his proud; Lord Vishnu disguised as a small child called- Vaman Avtaar. Vamana Bhagvana told Bali to donate three steps of land and He said that the land that he donate Vamana will measure by His own step; Raja Bali agreed then Vamana show him His huge Form and measured all the world in two steps and ask where He put his third step -that Bali had promised to give; then Raja Bali bowed his head in front of Bhagvaan Vamana and told to put his third step on his head. As all we knows our mind or intelligence is in our head and if it will be polite; it beautifies our wisdom. So basically by this story in final Ved Vyaasji the author of Bhagvtam wanted to tell that self – dedication after all renounce is the key of Love or Bhakti that is the final goal of our human being for that we came and also without self – dedication our doubts will not be silent and a heart full of doubts cannot get the peace.
Here Bhagvan Vamana is in yellow color and demon Raja Bali in green – by this you can connect all the story.
