chalayasi vikramane balim adbhuta-vamana
kesava dhrita-vamana-rupa jaya jagadisa hare
– Sri Dasavatara Stotra (Jayadeva Goswami, Gita Govinda)
O wonderful dwarf, by Your massive steps You deceived King Bali, and by the Ganges water that has emanated from the nails of Your lotus feet, You liberate all living beings in this world.
0 Kesava! O Lord of the universe! O Lord Hari, who have assumed the form of a dwarf-brahmana! All glories to You!
