Onam The Day of Wealth & Abundance
The special day of Onam celebrates the 5th incarnation of Vishnu as Vamana (Dwarf), who incarnated on this earth plane to destroy the demon King Mahabali’s arrogance and grant him salvation. Mahabali represents ego, Maya, and over-indulgence in material desires. After crushing Mahabali’s pride, Vamana forgave and blessed him. It is believed that as a result of Vamana Vishnu’s boon, Mahabali visits his country every year, and the grand welcoming day is celebrated as Onam.
