  • Notes 

      Bana (also called Banasura (Sanskrit: बाणासुर)), in Hindu mythology, was a thousand-armed asura and son of Bali.[1] Banasura was a powerful and terrible asura. All people, even the king of earth and Devas of heaven, were afraid of him. Bana was a follower of Siva. Banasura ruled in present-day central Assam with his capital at Sonitpur (present-day Tezpur, Assam), Banpur, (Uttar Pradesh). Banasura, having served Shiva, requested a boon. Desiring to fight, he asks Shiva who is a worthy opponent. Scorning his belligerence, Lord Shiva tells him that he will be defeated by Krishna. The demon is pleased, and awaits this fate with impatience. His flag falls during a battle occasioned by Aniruddha.
