Trivikrama


Trivikrama
name of a god
a name for the Supreme Lord indicating His incarnation as the dwarf brāhmaṇa Vāmanadeva. Meaning literally “He who took three big steps,” this name recalls the Lord's pastime of extending His foot through the coverings of the material universe and into the Causal Ocean.

✍ The Lord is called Trivikrama because He showed His strength by delivering the entire universe with merely three steps.
