Dwadashi of Shukla Paksha of Bhadrapad month is called ‘Vamana Dwadashi’. This is the day when Lord Vishnu incarnated as Vamana Dev. Therefore, this day is also called ‘Vamana Jayanti’. Vamana Dev was the fifth incarnation of Vishnu and the first incarnation of the Treta Yuga. The first incarnation of Lord Vishnu in human form was Vamana Dev. Earlier; Lord Vishnu had taken four avatars in animal form which were Matsya avatar, Kurma avatar, Varaha avatar and Narasimha avatar respectively. Lord Vishnu took the form of a dwarf Brahmin in Vamana avatar. Vamana Dev also known as Upendra in South India.

Vamana Dev was born as the son of Rishi Mata Aditi and Kashyapa in the Abhijit Muhurta on Shukla Paksha Dwadashi of the month of Bhadrapada when Shravan Nakshatra was in vogue. He was the twelfth among the Adityas. It is believed that Vamana Dev was the younger brother of Indra Dev.
