Sri Vamana Stotram is the Slokam in praise of and as prayer to Sri Vamana, the fourth incarnation of Sri Maha Vishnu. Sri Vamana was born to the Sage Kashyap and Adhithi Devi. As Indra was born earlier to the same parents, Sri Vamana is also called as Upendhra, which means, “the younger brother of Indra”.
Sri Vamana Stotram is believed to be mentioned in Srimad Bhagavatham. The Slokam is composed as the prayer made by Adhithi Devi addressed to Sri Vamana.
The Slokam is presented in Devanagari and English scripts with a simple English translation.
