Trivikrama literally means 3 steps and is another name for Vamana - a Vishnu Avatar where Trivikrama asks Asura King Bali for three steps of land and just with two steps he takes over all that the mighty Aura King Bali owns - Bali being a noble Asura offers Vamana his own head as the third step thus also achieves moksha.
