Balapatren in the mythology of India, was an avatar of Vishnu. He lived as a penitent, not knowing himself that he was the god Vishnu. He sought to lead men to follow the good, and destroyed the giants — for instance, Vrutarassuram — whom he slew with his ploughshare. Others call him Bala-Rama (q.v.).
