The Lord's first foot covered this world and the second foot covered the other world. How huge the Lord's foot would have been to cover the whole world! How can such a huge foot be kept on Emperor Bali's head for the third step of land? The inner significance of the three steps is that the Lord entered Bali's body, mind and soul as he offered them to Him. Once the ego or body consciousness is surrendered, there is no bar to one's realisation. It is the body consciousness that stands in the way and makes you forget God. Vamana opened Bali's eyes to help him realise the Divine.
