SHUKRASHUKRA The king Bali was proud of his wealth. He was puffed up greatly by performing Yajnas (sacrifices). By not consulting his Guru (Shukra), he went to the nether-regions (Patala). (Gauri M. l, p. 224) Shukra or Venus is one of the planets. Mythologically Shukra was the son of Bhrigu. He was the Guru of Bali and the demons. When the dwarf (Vamana) met Bali, he asked Bali to be cautious about the demands put by him. But the king Bali did not hold further consultations with his Guru, therefore the dwarf incarnation of Vishnu, through stratagem, sent him to the nether-regions. See : Bali.
