Check for the complete description in the notes section.
Trivikrama was so huge in size. His body contained everything of the universe. On the foot were the earth and all its mountains, rivers, oceans and living beings. All the flying beings in the universe like birds were near the Lords’ knees, and all types of moving wind from the entire universe were near his thigh. Behind the beautiful clothes worn by Trivikrama, Bali could see twilight. In Trivikrama’s navel, he saw the entire skies. On his waist, Bali saw the great seven oceans, not of the earth, but of the universe. In the heart of Trivikrama, Bali saw dharma, or the rules to be followed by all the beings in the universe. On Trivikrama’s chest, Bali saw all the truth and words that bring peace to one’s mind and are pleasing to hear. He saw Lakshmi on one side of Trivikrama’s chest. On Trivikrama’s neck, he saw all the Universal knowledge and sounds. On His arms, there were all the devas headed by Indra. In his ears, all the directions; on the head, all the galaxies and planets where heavenly beings were present. All the clouds in the Universe were in his matte of hair; Fire was seen in his mouth. Wind could be seen in his nostrils; Sun on the eyes. His eyelids had all the days and all the nights (when his eyelids were open, it was day). On his back, the adharma or the things opposed to rules was there. Death was seen in his shadows. One could see the maya in Trivikrama’s smile. All the hairs in his body were plants and trees. All the rivers were in his veins, and rocks were present in his nails. In his intelligence, Brahma, the devas and all the great saintly persons were present, and throughout his entire body, all the living beings of the universe were present.
How great indeed teh Lord is and how lucky Bali is! JAI SRIMAN NARAYANA ! Jai Trivikrama !
