(Whosoever hears of this narration of Vamana Charitra and Mahatmya would have no ‘Adhi-Vyadhis’ or exteral and internal problems and be freed from sins; Brahmanas would attain Veda Prapti, Kshatriyas of Victories, Vaishyas of Dhana Samruddhi; As they read or hear of Prahlada-Bali Samvada or of Bali and Vishnu Charitra, one would avoid situations of Official hindrances and achieve the desired goals of life.)
