On this day, one who observes fast wholeheartedly and sincerely gains freedom from all kinds of troubles. 

It is believed that this incarnation of Lord Vishnu is directly associated with the planet called Jupiter.

Specifically, if the planet Jupiter is in a debilitated position in horoscope or is placed with Shani/Rahu/Ketu or is present in the eighth and twelfth house, then those have to perform worship of Lord Vaman with appropriate rituals. This fast is proven to be extremely beneficial for those who are facing problems associated with Jupiter.

Legends Pertaining to Vaman Jayanti

It is believed that only by reciting this legend (Katha) on the day of Vaman Jayanti one can fulfill his/her desires. 

When the demon named king Bali defeated Lord Indra and captured Heaven, then Indra’s mother, Aditi, felt highly upset. In such a situation, she prayed to Lord Vishnu for the safety of his son. Pleased with the devotion of Maa Aditi, Lord Vishnu appeared and said that she should not be worried of anything and assured her that he would take birth in the form of her son and get back Lord Indra’s empire.  

After this, Lord Vishnu took birth in Aditi’s womb as Vaman. Then,  he came to know that  Bali was performing the Ashwamedha Yagya to capture Indra Lok permanently. During the Yagya, Vaman made his presence and the entire place was illuminated by his grace. Then Bali respectfully welcomed him and asked what he could offer. Then, Lord Vaman asked for three steps of land and Bali resolved by holding water in hand to offer the same.

As soon as the promise was complied with, Lord Vaman took his colossal form and measured the Earth with one foot and Heaven with the other foot and nothing was for the third foot and therefore, Bali surrendered his head before Lord Vamana. Lord Vamana was pleased with the fulfillment of promise and made him the master of the underworld and freed the Gods from his fury.
