Since Bali was a beloved king of his people and a devoted follower, the defeated gods went to Lord Vishnu asking for help to overcome this challenging situation.
This was when Lord Vishnu incarnated as a human dwarf named Vamana and asked Mahabali to grant him three pieces of land, to which Mahabali agreed without hesitation or doubt.
In that instance, Vamana immediately took a gigantic form and covered heaven and nether-land in his two steps. For his third step, Mahabali offered his head, and Lord Vishnu pushed him under the earth. In that way, Vishnu measured out the three realms and conquered the three worlds again. This enormous form of Lord Vishnu is named Trivikrama.
