bakura बकुर

Definition: Is mentioned in one passage of the Rigveda, where it is said that the Aśvins made light for the Aryan by blowing their Bakura against the Dasyus. According to the Nirukta, the thunderbolt is meant; but much more probable is Roth’s view, that the object blown was a musical instrument. See also Bākura.
