What happened to Mahabali after leaving earth? Mahabali’s story of Onam festival…
As said, atmanivedanam was the route through which Bali attained Moksha. In his “The Sri Rūpa Gosvāmīs Bhakti-rasāmrta-sindhu”, Krishna affirms that Bali attained Him or came to Him. To refer to Adhatya Ramayana, The gate of Bali’s planet, known as ‘Sutala’ is being guarded by Vamana and will continue to do so till eternity. Ramcharitmanas, written by Tulsidas does proclaim that Vamana turned to be the gatekeeper or ‘Dvarapala’ of Bali.
According to Vamana Puranna, Aswamedha sacrifice that took place in Kurukshetra, was performed by Bali. He also won over Indra’s kingdom.
Kings Paying Tribute to Mahabali-Drawing in The Bhavishyottara Purana, it should be the duty of any king to pay regards to King Bali, who is assumed to be the “future Indra”.
Mahabali visiting Kurukshetra- It is believed that Mahabali not only paid visit to Kurukshetra, he did pay some offerings also there.
Connection with Maritime Geological Events-In his creation, ‘Underground’, Preston Peet, the scholar, Vamana’s story about Bali Chakravarti losing his kingdom is considered to be the geological change took place through the transition from maritime to the shore or to say ‘landward expansion’, which purported from the guidance by the saints i.e. ‘rishis’, is nothing but disinformation to the then civilization and definitely an utter disbelief to the archeological science, is nothing but the circumstances of hidden history of the whole episode of Bali’s empire.
Asuras versus Devas.
According to the dictum of Rigveda, Aryans were of two groups; the first group was known as ‘Indo-Aryans’, who were in the opinion that the true mother of Gods was “Adity”; while the second group, known as ‘Irano-Aryans, nick named as ‘Dasyu’ believed that the twin sister ‘Diti’ was the true mother of Gods. Bali was born to either of them. D.R.Bhandarkar, the scholar, in his “Some Aspects of Ancient Indian Culture’ posits that “Persians or to say Parsus” were actually “Rakshasas” i.e. demons. The scholar furthers to say that the word ‘Asuras’ was conjoined by Panini in his creation “Parshvadigana”.
