MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.170 When I heard that our Maharathas, unable to overcome Arjuna, with jubilant faces after having jointly surrounded and slain the boy Abhimanyu, then, O Sanjaya, I had no hope of success.
Mbh.1.1.171 When I heard that the blind Kauravas were shouting for joy after having slain Abhimanyu and that thereupon Arjuna in anger made his celebrated speech referring to Saindhava, then, O Sanjaya, I had no hope of success.
Mbh.1.2.318 The next is called the marriage of Abhimanyu with the daughter of Virata.
Mbh.1.2.338 Then the death of Abhimanyu; and then the vow of Arjuna to slay Jayadratha.
Mbh.1.2.374 This parva then describes Arjuna's meeting on the way with Ulupi, the daughter of a Naga serpent; it then relates his visits to several sacred spots; the birth of Vabhruvahana; the deliverance by Arjuna of the five celestial damsels who had been turned into alligators by the imprecation of a Brahmana, the meeting of Madhava and Arjuna on the holy spot called Prabhasa; the carrying away of Subhadra by Arjuna, incited thereto by her brother Krishna, in the wonderful car moving on land and water, and through mid-air, according to the wish of the rider; the departure for Indraprastha, with the dower; the conception in the womb of Subhadra of that prodigy of prowess, Abhimanyu; Yajnaseni's giving birth to children; then follows the pleasure-trip of Krishna and Arjuna to the banks of the Jamuna and the acquisition by them of the discus and the celebrated bow Gandiva; the burning of the forest of Khandava; the rescue of Maya by Arjuna, and the escape of the serpent, and the begetting of a son by that best of Rishis, Mandapala, in the womb of the bird Sarngi.
Mbh.1.2.402 Then the slaying by Bhima of the wicked Kichaka who, senseless with lust, had sought Draupadi; the appointment by prince Duryodhana of clever spies; and their despatch to all sides for tracing the Pandavas; the failure of these to discover the mighty sons of Pandu; the first seizure of Virata's kine by the Trigartas and the terrific battle that ensued; the capture of Virata by the enemy and his rescue by Bhimasena; the release also of the kine by the Pandava Bhima; the seizure of Virata's kine again by the Kurus; the defeat in battle of all the Kurus by the single-handed Arjuna; the release of the king's kine; the bestowal by Virata of his daughter Uttara for Arjuna's acceptance on behalf of his son by Subhadra, Abhimanyu, the destroyer of foes.
Mbh.1.2.443 First comes the installation in the command of the army of the great instructor in arms, Drona: then the vow made by that great master of weapons of seizing the wise Yudhishthira in battle to please Duryodhana; then the retreat of Arjuna from the field before the Sansaptakas, then the overthrow of Bhagadatta like to a second Indra in the field, with the elephant Supritika, by Arjuna; then the death of the hero Abhimanyu in his teens, alone and unsupported, at the hands of many Maharathas including Jayadratha; then after the death of Abhimanyu, the destruction by Arjuna, in battle of seven Akshauhinis of troops and then of Jayadratha; then the entry, by Bhima of mighty arms and by that foremost of warriors-in-chariot, Satyaki, into the Kaurava ranks impenetrable even to the gods, in search of Arjuna in obedience to the orders of Yudhishthira, and the destruction of the remnant of the Sansaptakas.
Mbh.1.40.2130 And approaching him hastily, the monarch, hungry and fatigued, and raising his bow, asked that Muni of rigid vows, saying, O Brahmana, I am king Parikshit, the son of Abhimanyu.
Mbh.1.41.2155 And Krisa answered, King Parikshit, the son of Abhimanyu, while hunting, had wounded a fleet stag with an arrow and chased it alone.
Mbh.1.49.2515 And, therefore, the mighty son of Abhimanyu came to be called Parikshit born in an extinct line.
Mbh.1.63.3181 And Abhimanyu was born of Subhadra, the sister of Vasudeva through Arjuna, and was, therefore, the grandson of the illustrious Pandu.
Mbh.1.67.3525 And he who was known as the mighty Varchas, the son of Soma, became Abhimanyu of wonderful deeds, the son of Arjuna.
Mbh.1.95.5346 And he begat upon her a son named Abhimanyu endued with all accomplishments and dear to Vasudeva himself.
Mbh.1.95.5351 Amongst them all, Abhimanyu was the perpetuator of the family.
Mbh.1.222.10856 That hero and oppressor of foes came to be called Abhimanyu.
Mbh.1.222.10857 And the son of Arjuna, that grinder of foes and bull among men, was called Abhimanyu because he was fearless and wrathful.
Mbh.1.222.10865 Abhimanyu became like unto his father in knowledge of the scriptures and rites of religion.
Mbh.1.222.10867 Like Maghavat beholding Arjuna, the latter beheld his son Abhimanyu and became exceedingly happy.
Mbh.1.222.10868 Abhimanyu possessed the power of slaying every foe and bore on his person every auspicious mark.
Mbh.3.22.1119 And causing Subhadra and Abhimanyu to ascend his golden car, Krishna, mounted it himself, worshipped by the Pandavas.
Mbh.3.33.1645 This thy course of life is approved neither by Krishna, nor Vibhatsu, nor by Abhimanyu, nor by the Srinjayas, nor by myself, nor by the sons of Madri.
Mbh.3.120.6147 Then let Abhimanyu rule the world so long as this most excellent of virtuous men, the magnanimous Yudhishthira, may be engaged in fulfilling his vow, the vow that was accepted and declared by him, the most righteous of Kuru's race, on the occasion of the famous play at dice.
Mbh.3.182.9016 And Arjuna asked, saying, How is Subhadra, and her son Abhimanyu'
Mbh.3.182.9034 And, O Krishna, as Rukmini's son is the preceptor of Aniruddha, of Abhimanyu, of Sunitha, and of Bhanu; so he is the preceptor and the refuge of your sons also!
Mbh.3.182.9036 And he, the son of Rukmini, having bestowed a very good training upon them, and having taught them the art of using various weapons in a proper way, takes satisfaction at the valorous deeds of your sons, and of Abhimanyu.
Mbh.3.233.11830 Like Abhimanyu they are all staying at Dwaravati, delighted with the place.
Mbh.4.72.2805 Surpassing all in knowledge of weapons, resembling a celestial youth in beauty, my son, the mighty-armed Abhimanyu is the favourite nephew of Vasudeva, the wielder of the discus.
Mbh.4.72.2812 And then, after the expiry of the thirteenth year, the five Pandavas took up their abode in one of Virata's towns called Upaplavya, and Vibhatsu, the son of Pandu, brought over Abhimanyu and Janardana, and also many people of the Dasarha race from the Anarta country.
Mbh.4.72.2817 And he was highly pleased to bestow his daughter upon Abhimanyu.
Mbh.4.72.2819 And these repressers of foes came there bringing with them Abhimanyu and his mother.
Mbh.5.1.4 Vaisampayana said, Then those valiant descendants of Kuru, who belonged to the same party with Virata, having joyfully celebrated the nuptials of Abhimanyu and rested themselves that night, presented themselves at dawn, well pleased, in the court of Virata, And the chamber of the king of the Matsya was full of riches, and variegated with choice gems and precious stones, with seats methodically arranged, adorned with garlands, and filled with fragrance.
Mbh.5.1.8 And side by side with the king of the Matsya sat Krishna and Yudhishthira, and all the sons of king Drupada, and Bhima and Arjuna, and the two sons of Madri, and Pradyumna and Samva, both valiant in battle, and Abhimanyu with Virata's sons.
Mbh.5.48.2693 When that slayer of hostile heroes, Abhimanyu, skilled in arms like Krishna himself, will overpower the foe showering upon them, like the very clouds, a thick downpour of arrows, then will the son of Dhritarashtra repent for this war.
Mbh.5.50.2876 He, that in energy is like unto Krishna and in self-restraint unto Yudhishthira, with that Abhimanyu, will the Pandavas fight against you.
Mbh.5.59.3242 Neither Abhimanyu nor the Twins can repair to that place where are the two Krishnas and Draupadi and lady Satyabhama.
Mbh.5.82.3923 I have, by these five heroes, five sons that are all mighty car-warriors, and that are morally bound to thee, O Krishna, as Abhimanyu himself.
Mbh.5.82.3940 My five sons also that are endued with great energy, with Abhimanyu, O slayer of Madhu, at their head, will fight with the Kauravas.
Mbh.5.141.6331 Resembling his father, or perhaps, excelling him in prowess, Subhadra's son Abhimanyu will be the chief Vedic hymn to be chanted.
Mbh.5.151.6797 Indeed, the sons of Dhritarashtra will never be able to keep their ground when they will behold Dhananjaya with Yuyudhana as his second, and Abhimanyu, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Virata, and Drupada, and the other kings of fierce prowess, all lords of Akshauhinis.
Mbh.5.163.7342 And Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandin and that mighty car-warrior, Satyaki, and the five Kekaya brothers, and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, the sons of Draupadi, and Abhimanyu, and king Dhrishtaketu, and Bhimasena, endued with great prowess, and those mighty car-warriors, the twins, jumped up from their seats, their eyes red with anger, tossing their handsome arms decked with red sandal-paste and ornaments of gold.
Mbh.5.164.7451 Without doubt, O Suyodhana, I am the destroyer of all the sons of Dhritarashtra, as Abhimanyu is of all the younger princes!
Mbh.5.165.7486 And he urged Subhadra's son Abhimanyu against Vrishasena the son of Karna, and also against all the rest of the kings, for he regarded Abhimanyu as superior to Arjuna himself in battle.
Mbh.5.171.7722 The mighty-armed Abhimanyu is a leader of leaders of car-divisions.
Mbh.5.197.8819 Thou hast for thy allies Sikhandin, and Yuyudhana and Dhristadyumna of Prishata's race; and Bhimasena, and these twins, and Yudhamanyu, and Uttamaujas, and Virata and Drupada who are equal in battle unto Bhishma and Drona; and the mighty-armed Sankha, and Hidimva's son of great might; and this latter's son Anjanparvan endued with great strength and prowess; and Sini's descendant of mighty arms and well-versed in battle, and the mighty Abhimanyu and the five sons of Draupadi!
Mbh.5.199.8846 And the son of Pandu first ordered Abhimanyu, and Vrihanta, and the five sons of Draupadi, to march with Dhrishtadyumna at their head.
Mbh.5.199.8852 And the son of Pandu ordered that those mighty bowmen, the five sons of Draupadi and Abhimanyu, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and all the Prabhadrakas, and ten thousand horses, and two thousand elephants, and ten thousand foot-soldiers, and five hundred cars, constituting the first irresistible division of his army, should be placed under the command of Bhimasena.
Mbh.6.45.2207 And the mighty bowman Abhimanyu battled with Vrihadvala.
Mbh.6.47.2349 Then Abhimanyu in great wrath, stationed on his car unto which were yoked excellent steeds of a tawny hue, rushed towards Bhishma's car.
Mbh.6.48.2516 They were Satyaki, and Bhimasena, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race; and the five Kekaya brothers, and Dhrishtaketu and Abhimanyu of great energy.
Mbh.6.48.2523 But that mighty car-warrior, thy sire Devavrata, checking both Bhimasena and Abhimanyu and other car-warriors with terrible shafts, struck him with three straight arrows.
Mbh.6.52.2705 And then Satyaki, and Virata and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, and the sons of Draupadi, and Abhimanyu, all surrounded him, proceeding to his support.
Mbh.6.55.2936 The light-handed Abhimanyu then, O bull of Bharata's race, excited with rage, quickly pierced his cousin with five hundred arrows.
Mbh.6.55.2940 King Duryodhana then, O monarch, beholding his mighty son thus afflicted by thy grandson Abhimanyu, proceeded to that spot.
Mbh.6.57.3032 And Arjuna's son Abhimanyu, and Satyaki, both advanced against the forces of Suvala's son.
Mbh.6.58.3039 And the heroic Gandharvas along with Suvala's son with a large force surrounded Satyaki and Abhimanyu.
Mbh.6.60.3291 Then the heroic Abhimanyu, the son of Arjuna, conversant with all weapons and cased in a handsome and golden coat of mail, rushing out of the ranks, quickly proceeded against all those warriors.
Mbh.6.62.3346 And while Dhrishtadyumna was being thus afflicted, Abhimanyu, excited with wrath, rushed impetuously towards the car of the ruler of the Madras.
Mbh.6.62.3351 of Prishata's race, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Abhimanyu, and the twin sons of Madri and Pandu, these ten opposed those ten warriors of the Dhritarashtra army shooting, O king, diverse kinds of weapons.
Mbh.6.62.3360 And Abhimanyu, O Bharata, pierced Satyavrata and Purumitra each with ten shafts.
Mbh.6.63.3403 And in that dreadful, fierce, and terrific encounter his brother and sons and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, and the sons of Draupadi and Abhimanyu, and the unvanquished Sikhandin, these mighty warriors, did not abandon him from fear.
Mbh.6.64.3445 Beholding Bhima thus unmanned, the illustrious and mighty car-warriors of the Pandava army, headed by Abhimanyu could not bear it.
Mbh.6.69.3760 Thereupon Abhimanyu excited with wrath, and the sons of Draupadi, O sire, pierced with their sharp-pointed shafts all those warriors with upraised weapons.
Mbh.6.73.3907 And Abhimanyu, acquainted with the mightiest weapons, smote them all with keen shafts.
Mbh.6.73.3911 Thereupon that mighty car-warrior Abhimanyu, excited with wrath, pierced Lakshmana graced with auspicious marks, as also his charioteer, with six sharp arrows.
Mbh.6.73.3914 Then that mighty car-warrior, viz, Abhimanyu, slaying the four steeds as also the charioteer of Lakshmana with sharp shafts, rushed towards the latter.
Mbh.6.73.3916 Abhimanyu, however, with his sharp arrows, cut off that irresistible dart of fierce mien, resembling a snake, and coming impetuously towards him.
Mbh.6.77.4101 And those chastisers of foes then, viz, the Kaikeyas and the sons of Draupadi, and Dhrishtaketu of great prowess, supported by a large force and with Abhimanyu at their head, and disposing themselves in the array called Suchimukha penetrated into that car-division of the Dhartarashtras in battle.
Mbh.6.77.4102 And thy troops, O king, struck with the fear of Bhimasena and deprived of their senses by Dhrishtadyumna, were unable to resist the rush of those mighty bowmen headed by Abhimanyu.
Mbh.6.77.4105 And the latter, beholding those mighty bowmen headed by Abhimanyu, became filled with delight and continued to smite down thy ranks.
Mbh.6.77.4112 Then that mighty car-warrior of strong arms, viz, Dhrishtadyumna, quickly descending from that car whose steeds had been slain, ascended the great car of Abhimanyu.
Mbh.6.78.4129 Then king Yudhishthira the just, disposing all his own divisions properly despatched twelve mighty car-warriors including Abhimanyu and others to follow Bhimasena behind.
Mbh.6.79.4133 SECTION LXXIX Sanjaya said, Then Abhimanyu, accompanied by Bhimasena pursuing thy sons, afflicted them all.
Mbh.6.79.4134 Then the mighty car-warriors of thy army, including Duryodhana and others, beholding Abhimanyu and Bhimasena united with Prishata's son in the midst of the Kauravas troops, took up their bows, and borne by their fleet steeds rushed to the spot where those warriors were.
Mbh.6.79.4136 And Abhimanyu, having, in that fierce battle, slain the steeds of Vikarna, pierced the latter with five and twenty small arrows.
Mbh.6.79.4139 Then Durjaya and Vikarna pierced Abhimanyu with five shafts made wholly of iron.
Mbh.6.79.4140 Abhimanyu however, shook not in the least but stood firm like the mountain Meru.
Mbh.6.80.4182 Then, O king, Dhrishtaketu and Abhimanyu of great energy, and the Kekayas, and the sons of Draupadi, all encountered thy sons.
Mbh.6.80.4183 And the high-souled Abhimanyu smote them all, piercing each with five straight shafts, resembling the bolts of heaven or Death's selves, shot from his excellent bow.
Mbh.6.80.4185 But Abhimanyu, that invisible warrior accomplished in arms, thus afflicted by them in battle, caused all thy sons, O king, to tremble like the wielder of the thunder-bolt causing the mighty Asuras to tremble in the battle between the celestials and the latter.
Mbh.6.82.4288 And possessed of great prowess, Abhimanyu the son of Arjuna, fought in battle, O king, against the sons Chitrasena and Vikarna, and Durmarshana.
Mbh.6.85.4487 Then a fierce battle took place between Abhimanyu and those warriors, like the battle of the body, O king, with wind, bile, and phlegm
Mbh.6.85.4488 That tiger among men, however, viz, Abhimanyu, having, O king, deprived thy sons of their cars, slew them not, remembering Bhima's words
Mbh.6.85.4489 Then during the progress of the fight, Kunti's son Arjuna, of white steeds, beholding Bhishma, who was incapable of being vanquished by very gods, proceeding to rescue thy sons in view of Abhimanyu, a boy and alone though a mighty car-warrior, addressed Vasudeva and said these words, Urge the steeds, O Hrishikesa, to that spot where are those numerous car-warriors.
Mbh.6.88.4635 In the rear were ordered Abhimanyu, and that mighty car-warrior, Virata, and the sons of Draupadi and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha.
Mbh.6.90.4729 And the heroic Abhimanyu, and that mighty car-warrior, viz, the son of Hidimva, and Bhimasena excited with wrath, rushed against the other Kauravas.
Mbh.6.94.4949 Him followed Satyadhriti and Sauchiti difficult of being vanquished in battle, and Srenimat, and Vasudana and the powerful son of the ruler of Kasi, and many car-warriors headed by Abhimanyu, as also those mighty car-warriors, viz, the sons of Draupadi, and the valiant Kshatradeva, and Kshatradharman, and Nila, the ruler of the low countries, at the head of his own forces.
Mbh.6.95.4991 Then many mighty car-warriors of the Pandava army, headed by Abhimanyu and with wrath generated in their bosoms, rushed at the king shouting loudly.
Mbh.6.95.5008 Beholding that mighty car-warrior thus afflicted and placed in a situation of great peril, many mighty car-warriors of the Pandava army, headed by Abhimanyu, and prepared to lay down dear life itself, rushed to the spot, desirous of rescuing him.
Mbh.6.96.5058 They were Bhimasena, and Abhimanyu and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha; and the sons of Draupadi, and Satyadhriti, and Kshatradeva, O sire, and the rulers of the Chedis, and Vasudana, and the king of the Dasarnas.
Mbh.6.96.5074 Those warriors were the five Kekaya princes, and Abhimanyu, and the five sons of Draupadi and the heroic ruler of the Dasarnas, and Kshatradeva also, O sire, and the ruler of the Chedis, and Chitraketu.
Mbh.6.96.5107 And he pierced Abhimanyu with three, and the Kekaya brothers with five.
Mbh.6.97.5146 And king Amvashta placed himself before Abhimanyu.
Mbh.6.97.5169 Abhimanyu also, with his shafts, deprived that renowned and foremost of car-warriors, viz, king Amvashta, of his car.
Mbh.6.97.5170 Deprived of his car and about to be slain by the celebrated son of Subhadra, that king quickly jumped down from his car in shame, and hurled his sword in that battle at the high-souled Abhimanyu.
Mbh.6.100.5344 And that great bowman Abhimanyu, and the mighty Drupada, and the five Kaikeya brothers, stood for battle, clad in mail.
Mbh.6.101.5367 SECTION CI Sanjaya said, Then the noble Abhimanyu of great energy, borne by his steeds of a tawny hue, rushed at the mighty host of Duryodhana, scattering his arrowy showers like the clouds pouring torrents of rain.
Mbh.6.101.5375 Then, O best of men, having routed all troops, Abhimanyu stood, O king, like a blazing fire without a curl of smoke.
Mbh.6.101.5387 Hearing that awful wail thy troops, O Bharata, that resembled the roar of the very sea at full tide when agitated by the winds, Duryodhana then, O king, addressed the son of Rishyasringa and said, This Abhimanyu singly, O thou of mighty arms, like a second Phalguni, routeth from rage my army like Vritra routing the celestial host.
Mbh.6.101.5394 Filled with joy and taking up his bow with arrow fixed on the string, and apparently dancing on the terrace of his car, that Rakshasa proceeded against Abhimanyu himself.
Mbh.6.102.5425 I will also describe to thee the prowess that Arjuna put forth in battle, and Bhimasena the son of Pandu and Nakula, and Sahadeva, as also the warriors of thy army headed by Bhishma and Drona, all of whom fearlessly achieved wonderful feats of diverse kinds, Alamvusha, uttering loud shouts and repeatedly roaring at Abhimanyu, rushed impetuously against that mighty car-warrior in battle, saying, Wait, Wait, Abhimanyu also, repeatedly roaring like a lion, rushed with at great force at that mighty bowman, viz, the son of Rishyasringa, who was an implacable foe of the former's sire.
Mbh.6.102.5428 Then Abhimanyu, O king, pierced Rishyasringa's son in that battle with three sharp shafts and once more with five.
Mbh.6.102.5429 Alamvusha, also, excited with wrath, speedily pierced Abhimanyu in the chest with nine shafts like a guide piercing an elephant with hooks.
Mbh.6.102.5431 Then Abhimanyu excited with rage, pierced that prince of the Rakshasas in his wide chest with nine straight shafts of great sharpness.
Mbh.6.102.5435 Then the vindictive son of Rishyasringa, inflamed with wrath, covered Abhimanyu, who was equal unto Mahendra himself, with clouds of winged arrows.
Mbh.6.102.5436 Those sharp shafts resembling the rods of Yama himself, shot by him, pierced Abhimanyu through and entered the earth.
Mbh.6.102.5441 Neither could Abhimanyu be seen, nor could friends be distinguished from foes in that battle.
Mbh.6.102.5442 Abhimanyu, however, beholding that thick and awful gloom, invoked into existence.
Mbh.6.105.5598 Arjuna's son Abhimanyu pierced by Chitrasena with many shafts, deeply pierced Chitrasena in the chest with three arrows.
Mbh.6.109.5913 And in his rear were the sons of Draupadi and the valiant Abhimanyu.
Mbh.6.110.5999 And Satyaki, and Chekitana, and the twin sons of Madri, and the valiant Abhimanyu, these also are routing my troops.
Mbh.6.111.6021 And so Dhrishtadyumna also, O king, and the mighty car-warrior Abhimanyu, having heard those words of Partha, joyfully rushed at Bhishma.
Mbh.6.111.6032 Sudakshina the ruler of the Kamavojas, O king, resisted Abhimanyu, O monarch, who was proceeding towards Bhishma's car.
Mbh.6.112.6093 The mighty ruler of the Kamvojas, in that battle, resisted Abhimanyu who was proceeding against Bhishma.
Mbh.6.112.6095 Sudakshina, however, desirous of Bhishma's life, pierced Abhimanyu in that battle with five arrows and his charioteer with nine.
Mbh.6.113.6183 Satyaki, and Abhimanyu and Dhrishtadyumna, and Vrikodara, and the twins, even these are protecting that ruler of men, viz, king Yudhishthira.
Mbh.6.113.6184 Dark as the younger brother of Indra, and risen like a tall Sala, behold Abhimanyu advancing at the head of the Pandava host, like a second Phalguna!
Mbh.6.117.6340 SECTION CXVII Sanjaya said, Abhimanyu, O king, displaying his prowess for the sake of Bhishma, fought with thy son who was supported by a large force.
Mbh.6.117.6341 Then Duryodhana, excited with wrath, struck Abhimanyu in the chest with rune straight arrows, and once more with three.
Mbh.6.119.6538 And Abhimanyu, and the five sons of Draupadi also, with mighty weapons upraised, rushed against Bhishma in battle.
Mbh.6.120.6567 They were Satyaki, and Bhimasena, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, and both Virata and Drupada, and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, and the wrathful Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.10.381 That foremost hero of the Vrishni race, that chief of all bowmen, that brave warrior in whom all accomplishments exist in a greater degree than in Dhananajaya himself, in whom are ever weapons and truth and Brahmacharya, who is equal to Vasudeva in energy and Dhananjaya in strength, who in splendour is equal to Aditya and in intelligence to Vrihaspati, viz, the high-souled Abhimanyu, resembling Death himself with wide-open mouth, O what heroes of my army surrounded him when he rushed towards Drona?
Mbh.7.14.618 With his fleet steeds and upon his car duly equipped, Paurava, O king, roared at Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.14.619 Endued with great might, Paurava then rushed at Abhimanyu, desirous of battle.
Mbh.7.14.620 Then that chastiser of foes, viz, Abhimanyu fought fiercely with that foe.
Mbh.7.14.632 And as regards Paurava himself, Abhimanyu raised him up, like the Garuda raising a snake from the bottom of the sea agitating the waters.
Mbh.7.14.636 Then Subhadra's son Abhimanyu, beholding the ruler of the Sindhus, let Paurava alone, and leaping up like a hawk from the latter's car, quickly alighted on the earth.
Mbh.7.14.638 Thus showing unto all the warriors the strength of his own arms the mighty and heroic Abhimanyu, once more upraising his large and heavy sword as also his shield proceeded towards Vriddhakshatra's son who was a sworn foe of his Abhimanyu's father, like a tiger proceeding against an elephant.
Mbh.7.14.643 Then Jayadratha struck on the shield of the renowned Abhimanyu when the latter stretched his sword for making a pass at him.
Mbh.7.14.652 And having seized it thus, Abhimanyu unsheathed his sword.
Mbh.7.23.1116 Steeds of a tawny hue bore the youthful Abhimanyu who was regarded as superior to Krishna or Partha one and a half times in battle.
Mbh.7.23.1172 On the car, O king, of the youthful Abhimanyu was an excellent standard that bore a golden peacock, which was bright as heated gold.
Mbh.7.31.1671 Abhimanyu, at the command, O Bharata, of his sire's eldest brother, pierced in battle that impenetrable circular array in many places.
Mbh.7.31.1676 Dhritarashtra said, Hearing, O Sanjaya, of the slaughter of the son Abhimanyu, yet in his minority, of that lion among men, viz, Arjuna, my heart seems to break into pieces.
Mbh.7.32.1691 All those noble qualities that are in Krishna, all those that are in the Pandavas, all that assemblage of qualities was to be found in Abhimanyu alone.
Mbh.7.32.1694 Dhritarashtra said, I desire, O Suta, to hear in detail, how the invincible Abhimanyu, the son of Subhadra, hath been slain on the field of battle'
Mbh.7.33.1720 and Arjuna's son Abhimanyu, and Kshatradharman, and the valiant Vrihatkshatra, and Dhrishtaketu, the ruler of the Chedis, and the twin sons of Madri, viz, Nakula and Sahadeva, and Ghatotkacha, and the powerful Yudhamanyu and the unvanquished Sikhandin, and the irresistible Uttamaujas and the mighty car-warrior Virata, and the five sons of Draupadi, these all excited with wrath, and the valiant son of Sisupala, and the Kaikeyas of mighty energy, and the Srinjayas by thousands, these and others, accomplished in weapons and difficult of being resisted in battle, suddenly rushed, at the head of their respective followers, against Bharadwaja's son, from a desire of battle.
Mbh.7.33.1728 Addressing Abhimanyu, that slayer of hostile heroes, who was not inferior to Vasudeva himself and whose energy was superior to that of Arjuna, the king said, O child, act in such a way that Arjuna, returning from the Samsaptakas, may not reprove us.
Mbh.7.33.1732 O child, it behoveth thee, O Abhimanyu, to grant the boon that thy sires, thy maternal uncles, and all these troops ask of thee.
Mbh.7.33.1734 Abhimanyu said, Desiring victory to my sires, soon shall I in battle penetrate into that firm, fierce and foremost of arrays formed by Drona.
Mbh.7.33.1743 Abhimanyu said, I will penetrate into this invincible array of Drona, like an insect filled with rage entering a blazing fire.
Mbh.7.33.1750 Sanjaya continued, Hearing these words of Yudhishthira, Abhimanyu ordered his charioteer, Sumitra, saying, Quickly urge the steeds towards Drona's army
Mbh.7.34.1752 The charioteer, urged by him with the words, Proceed, Proceed' replied unto Abhimanyu, O king, in these words, O thou that art blest with length of days, heavy is the burthen that hath been placed upon thee by the Pandavas!
Mbh.7.34.1756 Hearing these words, Abhimanyu replied unto his charioteer, saying with a laugh, O charioteer, who is this Drona?
Mbh.7.34.1762 Abhimanyu then, thus disregarding those words of the charioteer, urged the latter, saying, Go with speed towards the army of Drona'
Mbh.7.34.1768 Those warriors then, filled with joy, began to strike Abhimanyu while he endeavoured to pierce their array.
Mbh.7.34.1775 Slaughtered by means of sharp shafts of diverse kinds, those warriors became perfectly helpless, and like insects falling upon a blazing fire, they continued to fall upon Abhimanyu on the field of battle.
Mbh.7.34.1776 And Abhimanyu strewed the earth with their bodies and diverse limbs of their bodies like priests strewing the altar at a sacrifice with blades of Kusa grass.
Mbh.7.34.1793 Mangling everything before him with his shafts, Abhimanyu was seen coursing on all sides.
Mbh.7.34.1801 Thus slaying many foremost of steeds of thy army, Abhimanyu looked resplendent.
Mbh.7.34.1802 Alone achieving the most difficult feat, like the inconceivable Vibhu himself in days of old, Abhimanyu crushed thy vast host of three kinds of forces cars, elephants, and steeds, like the three-eyed Mahadeva of immeasurable energy crushing the terrible Asura host.
Mbh.7.35.1810 Before us, in our very sight, the valiant Abhimanyu is slaying all he aims at.
Mbh.7.35.1823 And among those heroes thus fighting with and striking one another, viz, Abhimanyu and his man on one side and all those warriors together on the other, none turned back from the field.
Mbh.7.35.1824 In that dreadful and fierce battle, Duhsaha pierced Abhimanyu with nine shafts.
Mbh.7.35.1831 The valiant Abhimanyu, however, O king, seemingly dancing on his car, pierced each of those warriors in return with three shafts.
Mbh.7.35.1832 Then Abhimanyu, filled with rage in consequence of thy sons' endeavouring to frighten him thus, displayed the wonderful strength he had acquired from culture and practice.
Mbh.7.35.1835 Abhimanyu then, with ten shafts, cut off the former's steeds and charioteer and standard and two arms and bow and head, and caused them to fall down on the earth, smiling the while.
Mbh.7.35.1838 Then Abhimanyu, excessively pierced by those great bowmen with their straight shafts, shot shafts at Karna which was capable of piercing through every armour and body.
Mbh.7.35.1843 Meanwhile, Karna recovering from the shock pierced Abhimanyu with five and twenty shafts.
Mbh.7.35.1849 Meanwhile, Salya, pierced by Abhimanyu accomplished in weapons, with straight shafts penetrating into his very vitals, sat down on the terrace of his car and fainted away.
Mbh.7.35.1852 And Abhimanyu glorified by the Pitris, the gods, and Charanas, and Siddhas, as also by diverse classes of creatures on the earth, with praises about his heroism and skill in battle, looked resplendent like a sacrificial fire fed with clarified butter
Mbh.7.36.1854 Sanjaya said, Hear, O king, of the splendid prowess in battle of youthful Abhimanyu while engaged in breaking the car-ranks of the Kauravas, protected by the son of Bharadwaja himself'
Mbh.7.36.1855 Beholding the ruler of the Madras disabled in battle by Subhadra's son with his shafts, the younger brother of Salya, filled with wrath, advanced against Abhimanyu, scattering his shafts.
Mbh.7.36.1869 Those weapons that he had received from Vasudeva and those that he had received from Dhananjaya, Abhimanyu displayed in the very same way as Vasudeva and Dhananjaya.
Mbh.7.36.1876 Like the Sun himself shedding his rays, Abhimanyu, filled with wrath, shot hundreds and thousands of whetted arrows, furnished with golden wings.
Mbh.7.36.1878 Thereupon, that army thus afflicted by Abhimanyu with his shafts, turned its back on the field
Mbh.7.37.1880 O son of Gavalgana, ten me everything once more in detail about the encounter of youthful Abhimanyu, which seems to have been pretty like Skanda's encounter with the Asura host'
Mbh.7.37.1882 Mounted upon his car, Abhimanyu, with great daring, showered his arrows on the warriors of thy army mounted on their cars, all of whom were chastisers of foes, endued with great courage.
Mbh.7.37.1890 Hearing these words of Drona, so expressive of the gratification he felt, thy son, enraged with Abhimanyu, looked at Drona, faintly smiling the while.
Mbh.7.37.1909 Abhimanyu then, O chastiser of foes, received that son of thine thus advancing upon him wrathfully, with six and twenty arrows of sharp points.
Mbh.7.37.1910 Duhsasana, however, filled with rage, and looking like an infuriated elephant, fought desperately with Abhimanyu, the son of Subhadra in that battle.
Mbh.7.38.1913 SECTION XXXVIII Sanjaya said, Then the intelligent Abhimanyu, with limbs mangled with arrows, smilingly addressed his foe, Duhsasana, stationed before him saying, By good luck it is that I behold in battle that vain hero arrived before me, who is cruel, who hath cast away all righteousness, and who brawleth out lustily his own praises.
Mbh.7.38.1926 And soon Abhimanyu once more struck him with five and twenty arrows whose touch resembled that of fire, and which were sped from his bow drawn to its fullest stretch, Deeply pierced and greatly pained, Duhsasana, sat down on the terrace of his car and was, O king, overtaken by a swoon.
Mbh.7.38.1935 During the progress of that dreadful encounter, Duryodhana, O monarch, addressing the son of Radha, said, Behold, the heroic Duhsasana, who resembleth the scorching sun who was hitherto slaying the foe in battle, hath at last himself succumbed to Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.38.1937 Thus addressed, Karna with rage and desirous of doing good to thy son, rained showers of sharp arrows on the invincible Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.38.1939 The high-souled Abhimanyu, however, O king, desirous of proceeding against Drona, quickly pierced Radha's son with three and seventy shafts.
Mbh.7.38.1940 No car-warrior of thy army succeeded at that time in obstructing the progress towards Drona, of Abhimanyu, who was the son of Indra's son and who was afflicting all the foremost car-warriors of the Kaurava host.
Mbh.7.38.1942 That foremost of all persons conversant with weapons, that valiant disciple of Rama, by means of his weapons, thus afflicted Abhimanyu who was incapable of being defeated by foes.
Mbh.7.38.1945 With shafts resembling snakes of virulent poison and shot from his bow drawn to a circle, Abhimanyu quickly cut off the umbrella, standard, the charioteer, and the steeds of Karna, smiling the while.
Mbh.7.38.1946 Karna then shot five straight arrows at Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.39.1952 And Karna's brother, with ten shafts, pierced invincible Abhimanyu and his umbrella and standard and charioteer and steeds, smiling the while.
Mbh.7.39.1953 Beholding Abhimanyu thus afflicted with those arrows, although he had achieved those superhuman feats in the manner of his sire and grandsire, the warriors of thy army were filled with delight.
Mbh.7.39.1954 Then Abhimanyu, forcibly bending the bow and smiling the while, with one winged arrow cut off his antagonist's head.
Mbh.7.39.1958 Then Abhimanyu of fierce energy and great fame, filled with wrath, broke that host of diverse forces abounding with elephants and steeds and cars and infantry.
Mbh.7.39.1959 As regards Karna, afflicted by Abhimanyu with countless shafts, he fled away from the field borne by swift steeds.
Mbh.7.39.1962 Amongst thy warriors thus slaughtered by Abhimanyu with sharp shafts, none, O monarch, stayed any longer on the field of battle except the ruler of the Sindhus.
Mbh.7.39.1970 The noise made by the princes, as they called upon One another while slaughtered by Abhimanyu, became deafening and enhanced the fears of the timid.
Mbh.7.39.1977 Equal to Vasava himself in battle, that son of Vasava's son viz, Abhimanyu, looked resplendent in the midst of the hostile army
Mbh.7.40.1978 SECTION XL Dhritarashtra said, A mere child in years, brought up in great luxury, proud of the strength of his arms, accomplished in battle, endued with great heroism, the perpetuator of his race, and prepared to lay down his life, when Abhimanyu penetrated into the Katirava army, borne on his three-years old steeds of spirited mettle, was there any of great warriors, in Yudhishthira's army, that followed the son of Arjuna'
Mbh.7.40.1980 Indeed, Abhimanyu's sires accompanied by his maternal uncles, those smiters of foes, arrayed in order of battle rushed along the self-same path that Abhimanyu had created, desirous of rescuing him.
Mbh.7.42.2037 The clash between them of immeasurable energy, scattering their arrowy showers with great force, on the one side and Abhimanyu alone on the other, became awful.
Mbh.7.42.2039 And the mighty Abhimanyu then pierced Vrishasena's steeds with his straight shafts, upon which those coursers, with the speed of the wind, bore Vrishasena away from the battle.
Mbh.7.42.2043 Seeing the lion-like Abhimanyu angrily slaying the foe with his shafts and advancing from a distance.
Mbh.7.42.2045 The latter pierced Abhimanyu with sixty shafts of golden wings and addressing him, said, As long as I am alive, thou shalt not escape with life'
Mbh.7.42.2054 When Abhimanyu angrily careered over the field of battle in all directions, his very form became invisible.
Mbh.7.43.2058 Possessed of prowess resembling that of Sakra himself, the mighty son of Sakra's son, viz, Abhimanyu, agitating the Katirava army looked exceedingly resplendent.
Mbh.7.43.2062 As a whale in the sea obtaining a shoal of small fish seizes them with the greatest ease, even so did Abhimanyu receive that whole division of the rushing Kshatriyas.
Mbh.7.43.2063 Like rivers that never go back when they approach the sea, none amongst those unretreating Kshatriyas turned back when they approached Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.43.2066 When I am here, what is Abhimanyu?
Mbh.7.43.2068 Having said these words, the valiant prince, borne on his beautiful and well-equipped car, rushed at Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.43.2069 Piercing Abhimanyu with three shafts in the chest, three in the right arm, and three other sharp shafts in the left arm, he uttered a loud roar.
Mbh.7.43.2073 Beholding the brave and invincible son of Subhadra singly encountered by all those wrathful princes endued with heroism and skill acquired by practice and strength and youth, and seeing him covered with showers of arrows, Duryodhana rejoiced greatly, and regarded Abhimanyu as one already made a guest of Yama's abode.
Mbh.7.43.2079 With that weapon, Abhimanyu now confounded his foes.
Mbh.7.43.2086 Beholding those youthful princes brought up in every luxury, and resembling angry snakes of virulent poison, all slain by the single-handed Abhimanyu, Duryodhana was filled with fear.
Mbh.7.43.2087 Seeing his car-warriors and elephants and steeds and foot-soldiers crushed, the Kuru king quickly proceeded in wrath against Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.44.2102 All of them then drenched Abhimanyu with showers of arrows, like clouds pouring rain on the mountain-breast.
Mbh.7.44.2103 Abhimanyu, however, single-handed, began to crush them like the dry wind that blows in every direction destroying gathering masses of clouds.
Mbh.7.44.2106 Thy grandson, the mighty-armed Abhimanyu then, filled with rage like a snake struck with a rod, addressing, O king, thy other grandson, said, Look well on this world, for thou shalt soon have to go to the other.
Mbh.7.44.2113 Then Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and Drona's son and Vrihadvala, and Kritavarman, the son of Hridika, these six car-warriors, -encompassed Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.44.2120 The latter's bow and shafts, and bracelets, and arms, and head decked with diadem, and umbrella, and standard, and charioteer, and steeds, were all cut off and felled by Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.45.2123 Sanjaya said, Having penetrated into our array, Abhimanyu of Pandu's race, by means of his sharp shafts, made all the kings turn away from the fight.
Mbh.7.45.2132 Felling the steeds yoked to Kripa's car, as also both his Parshni charioteers, Abhimanyu pierced Kripa himself in the centre of the chest with ten arrows.
Mbh.7.45.2133 The mighty Abhimanyu, then, in the very sight of thy heroic sons, slew the brave Vrindaraka, that enhancer of the fame of the Kurus.
Mbh.7.45.2134 While Abhimanyu was thus engaged in fearlessly slaying one after another the foremost warriors among his enemies, Drona's son Aswatthaman pierced him with five and twenty small arrows.
Mbh.7.45.2136 Drona's son, however, in return, piercing Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.45.2138 Endued with great energy, the mighty Abhimanyu then pierced his antagonist with three and seventy straight arrows, equipped with wings of gold.
Mbh.7.45.2139 Drona then, desirous of rescuing his son, pierced Abhimanyu with a hundred arrows.
Mbh.7.45.2143 Abhimanyu, however, pierced each of these in return with ten shafts.
Mbh.7.45.2144 The ruler of the Kosala struck Abhimanyu, in the chest with a barbed arrow.
Mbh.7.45.2145 Abhimanyu, however, quickly felled on the earth his antagonist's steeds and standard and bow and charioteer.
Mbh.7.45.2147 Abhimanyu then pierced king Vrihadvala, the ruler of the Kosalas, in the chest, with a strong arrow.
Mbh.7.46.2153 The son of Radha pierced Abhimanyu in return with as many shafts.
Mbh.7.46.2154 Covered all over with arrows, Abhimanyu, then, O sire, looked exceedingly beautiful.
Mbh.7.46.2159 As regards other great bowmen Abhimanyu fearlessly pierced each of them in return, with ten arrows.
Mbh.7.46.2161 Slaying next the son of the ruler of the Magadhas, Abhimanyu, with six straight shafts, slew the youthful Aswaketu with his four steeds and charioteer.
Mbh.7.46.2163 Then the son of Duhsasana pierced the four steeds of Abhimanyu with four shafts, his charioteer with one and Abhimanyu himself with ten.
Mbh.7.46.2167 Saying these words unto him, Abhimanyu sped a long arrow, well polished by smith's hand, at his foe.
Mbh.7.46.2172 Abhimanyu then pierced Salya himself with six shafts made wholly of iron.
Mbh.7.46.2174 Abhimanyu then slew five warriors,
Mbh.7.46.2177 The latter piercing Abhimanyu with three arrows, said unto Duryodhana, Let us all together grind this one, else, fighting singly with us he will slay us all.
Mbh.7.46.2179 The Karna, the son of Vikartana, said unto Drona, Abhimanyu grindeth us all.
Mbh.7.46.2190 Hearing these words, Karna, afflicted with the shafts of Arjuna's son, once more said unto Drona, Exceedingly afflicted with the shafts of Abhimanyu, I am staying in battle, only because as a warrior I should stay here.
Mbh.7.46.2193 The preceptor then, slowly and with a smile, said unto Karna, Abhimanyu is young, his prowess is great.
Mbh.7.46.2203 Hearing these words of the preceptor, Vikartana's son Karna quickly cut off, by means of his shafts, the bow of Abhimanyu, as the latter was shooting with great activity.
Mbh.7.46.2207 Bowless and carless, with an eye, however, to his duty as a warrior, handsome Abhimanyu, taking up a sword and a shield, jumped into the sky.
Mbh.7.46.2210 He may fall upon me sword in hand' with such thoughts, those mighty bowmen, were on the lookout for the laches of Abhimanyu, and began to pierce him in that battle, with their gaze turned upwards.
Mbh.7.46.2215 His body bright with the dust of car-wheels, and himself holding the car-wheel in his upraised arms, Abhimanyu looked exceedingly beautiful, and imitating Vasudeva with his discus, became awfully fierce for a while in that battle.
Mbh.7.46.2216 His robes dyed with the blood flowing from his wounds, his brow formidable with the wrinkles visible thereon, himself uttering loud leonine roars, lord Abhimanyu of immeasurable might, staying in the midst of those kings, looked exceedingly resplendent on the field of battle
Mbh.7.47.2217 SECTION XLVII Sanjaya said, That joy of Vishnu's sister viz, Abhimanyu, that Atiratha, decked with the weapons of Vishnu himself, looked exceedingly beautiful on the field of battle and looked like a second Janardana.
Mbh.7.47.2221 Deprived by them of his bow and car and sword, and divested also of his wheel by his foes, the mighty-armed Abhimanyu mace in hand rushed against Aswatthaman.
Mbh.7.47.2222 Beholding that mace upraised, which looked like the blazing thunderbolt, Aswatthaman, that tiger among men, rapidly alighted from his car and took three long leaps for avoiding Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.47.2227 The invincible son of Duhsasan, then, O sire, taking up his mace, rushed at Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.47.2231 Then Duhsasana's son, that enhancer of the fame of the Kurus, rising up first, struck Abhimanyu with the mace on the crown of his head, as the latter, was on the point of rising.
Mbh.7.47.2234 As he lay dead on the field, the heroic Abhimanyu looked like a wild elephant slain by the hunters, The fallen hero was then surrounded by thy troops.
Mbh.7.47.2236 The mighty car-warriors of thy army beholding Abhimanyu whose face had the splendour of the full moon, and whose eyes were rendered beautiful in consequence of lashes black as the feathers of the raven, lying prostrate on the bare earth, were filled with great joy.
Mbh.7.47.2239 Beholding the heroic Abhimanyu lying on the field of battle, like the moon dropped from the firmament, diverse creatures, O king, in the welkin, said aloud, Alas, this one lieth on the field, slain, while fighting singly, by six mighty car-warriors of the Dhartarashtra army, headed by Drona and Karna.
Mbh.7.47.2246 Beholding Abhimanyu, resplendent as the sun or the moon, lying on the ground, thy troops were in transport of joy, while Pandavas were filled with grief.
Mbh.7.47.2247 When youthful Abhimanyu, yet in his minority, fell, the Pandava divisions, O king, fled away in the very sight of king Yudhishthira.
Mbh.7.47.2248 Beholding his army breaking upon the fall of Subhadra's son, Yudhishthira addressed his brave warriors, slaying, The heroic Abhimanyu, who without retreating from battle hath been slain, hath certainly ascended to heaven.
Mbh.7.47.2252 Having slain ten thousand warriors, viz, the king of the Kosalas, Abhimanyu, who was even like Krishna or Arjuna himself, hath assuredly gone to the abode of Indra.
Mbh.7.48.2277 And the warriors, gazing on that field of battle which, enhancing the population of Yama's domain, presented such an awful sight, and where human corpses rising up, began to dance, slowly left it as they beheld the mighty car-warrior Abhimanyu who resembled Sakra himself, lying on the field, his costly ornaments displaced and fallen off, and looking like a sacrificial fire on the altar no longer drenched with clarified butter
Mbh.7.49.2279 And they were brooding over that grief of theirs, their hearts fixed upon the deceased Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.49.2280 Indeed, upon the fall of that heroic nephew of his, viz, the mighty car-warrior Abhimanyu, king Yudhishthira, overwhelmed with grief, indulged in these lamentations: Alas, Abhimanyu, from desire of achieving my good, pierced the array formed by Drona and teeming with his soldiers.
Mbh.7.49.2284 When Abhimanyu is slain, how shall I cast my eyes on Arjuna and also the blessed Subhadra deprived of her favourite son?
Mbh.7.50.2310 This battle, however, that the enemy fought with Abhimanyu, was an extremely unequal one.
Mbh.7.52.2519 Abhimanyu, that mighty car-warrior, endued with mighty energy, having slain numerous foes before the gaze of all bowmen, hath attained to heaven.
Mbh.7.69.2959 As regards Abhimanyu, he was brave and heroic.
Mbh.7.69.2967 Indeed, Abhimanyu has once more got his own body of lunar essence that is desirable by all regenerate persons.
Mbh.7.70.3014 I do not, again, see Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.70.3017 None amongst you, save the boy Abhimanyu, could break that array.
Mbh.7.70.3051 What will Subhadra missing Abhimanyu, say unto me?
Mbh.7.70.3068 There is no doubt that Abhimanyu hath ascended to those regions that are reserved for persons of righteous acts.
Mbh.7.70.3070 As regards Abhimanyu, he having slain in battle many heroic and mighty princes, hath met with that death in the face of battle which is coveted by heroes.
Mbh.7.70.3076 Thus comforted by Krishna of wonderful deeds, Partha then said these words unto all his brothers, with voice choked with sorrow: O lord of the earth, I desire to hear how the mighty-armed Abhimanyu, how that hero of large eyes, resembling lotus-petals, fought.
Mbh.7.70.3082 Alas, how then could Abhimanyu be slain by the foe, causing a great carnage in your ranks?
Mbh.7.70.3083 Alas, ye have no manliness, nor have ye any prowess, since in the very sight of you all was Abhimanyu slain.
Mbh.7.71.3101 As regards ourselves, we followed that hero, that son of Subhadra, desirous in that battle, of penetrating into the Dhritarashtra army by the same path by which Abhimanyu had entered it.
Mbh.7.71.3105 After he had been deprived of his car, Dussasana's son, though he himself had a hair-breadth escape, succeeded, as chance would have it, in making Abhimanyu, meet with his end.
Mbh.7.71.3106 As regards Abhimanyu, he, having slain many thousands of men and steeds and elephants, and eight thousand cars, and once more nine hundred elephants, two thousand princes, and a large number of heroic warriors unknown to fame, and despatching in that battle king Vrihadvala also to heaven, at last, through ill luck, met with his own death.
Mbh.7.73.3194 Having heard of the death of Abhimanyu, Dhananjaya, deeply afflicted will in wrath come out in the night for battle,
Mbh.7.76.3310 Without seeing my Abhimanyu, my eyes are troubled with affliction.
Mbh.7.76.3337 Abhimanyu, that bull among Kshatriyas, hath obtained the most laudable goal.
Mbh.7.76.3338 O thou of beautiful face, let all the other men yet alive in our race obtain that goal which Abhimanyu of great fame hath obtained.
Mbh.7.83.3704 When Abhimanyu was slain, what became the state of your minds?
Mbh.7.140.7082 But what righteous man is there, O sire, that would applaud the slaughter of Abhimanyu, a mere child, without arms, deprived of car, and his armour fallen off'
Mbh.7.181.9889 When Abhimanyu was slain by the wicked Dhartarashtras, the mighty car-warrior Savyasachin, O Krishna, was not present in that battle.
Mbh.7.181.9893 While Abhimanyu was battling with the sword it was the preceptor himself that cut off that weapon.
Mbh.7.189.10461 None else have arrows of that kind, except Kripa, and Partha, and Aswatthaman and Karna, Pradyumna and Yuyudhana; Abhimanyu also had such arrows.
Mbh.8.5.124 He who was equal to Karna himself in battle, Karna's son Vrishasena, accomplished in arms, of mighty energy and steady prowess, hath, in the very sight of Karna, been despatched to Yama's abode by Dhananjaya who put forth his prowess remembering the slaughter of his own son Abhimanyu and bearing in mind the vow he had made.
Mbh.8.6.165 That invincible hero, viz, Abhimanyu, who, though a child in years, was still equal in battle to Arjuna or Keshava or Baladeva, O lord, that, warrior who was highly accomplished in battle, after making an immense slaughter of the foe, was at last encompassed by six foremost of car-warriors and slain by them.
Mbh.8.50.2828 Never before did I see him assume such a form, not even when Abhimanyu was slain and the Rakshasa Ghatotkaca.
Mbh.8.73.4368 Seven days have elapsed since the mighty Jayatsena, the ruler of the Magadhas, was slain in battle by Abhimanyu.
Mbh.8.73.4423 The bull-necked Abhimanyu, that spreader of the fame of both the Kurus and the Vrishnis, deprived steeds also of their riders and foot-soldiers of weapons and life.
Mbh.8.74.4518 Today, O slayer of Madhu, I will, with keen shafts, crush the bodies and cut off the heads of all the foes of Abhimanyu.
Mbh.8.87.5389 Thou shalt today comfort the mother of Abhimanyu with a lighter heart for having paid thy debt to the foe.
Mbh.8.91.5798 When many mighty car-warriors, encompassing the boy Abhimanyu in battle, slew him, whither had this virtue of thine then gone?
Mbh.9.5.321 Peace with them hath become impossible in consequence of the slaughter of Abhimanyu.
Mbh.9.30.2217 Yudhishthira said, How is it, O Duryodhana, that thou hadst not this knowledge when many great car-warriors, uniting together, slew Abhimanyu in battle?
Mbh.9.30.2219 Otherwise, how could you slay Abhimanyu under those circumstances?
Mbh.9.30.2224 If this be your duty, that one should never be slain by many, why is it then that Abhimanyu was slain by many, acting in accord with thy counsels?
Mbh.9.59.4285 Causing Abhimanyu, who was a child and alone, to be surrounded by many, thou didst slay that hero.
Mbh.11.12.497 What need hast thou of sovereignty, after having seen thy sires and brothers, O Bharata, and the irresistible Abhimanyu and the sons of Draupadi, thus slaughtered?
Mbh.11.15.645 Draupadi said, O venerable dame, where have all your grandsons, with Abhimanyu among them, gone?
Mbh.11.16.685 Behold, the field of battle is adorned with those tigers among men, Bhishma and Karna and Abhimanyu and Drona and Drupada and Shalya, as if with blazing fires.
Mbh.11.16.693 Who is there that could think of the death of such heroes as Jayadratha and Karna and Drona and Bhishma and Abhimanyu?
Mbh.11.20.826 I see, O Krishna, the splendour of that son of Arjuna, of that hero of immeasurable energy, Abhimanyu, hath not been dimmed even in death.
Mbh.11.20.864 Behold also, O Madhava, those other children besides Abhimanyu, Uttara, Sudakshina the prince of the Kambhojas, and the handsome Lakshmana, all lying on the field of battle
Mbh.11.25.1009 Engaged in plucking from his body the shafts with which it was pierced by Abhimanyu with the full might of his arms, those ladies are repeatedly losing their senses.
Mbh.11.26.1090 They properly burned upon those fires that blazed forth with libations of clarified butter in torrents over them, the bodies of Duryodhana and his hundred brothers, of Shalya, and king Bhurishrava; of king Jayadratha and Abhimanyu, O Bharata; of Duhshasanas son and Lakshmana and king Dhrishtaketu; of Vrihanta and Somadatta and the hundreds of Srinjayas; of king Kshemadhanva and Virata and Drupada; of Shikhandi the prince of Pancalas, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishatas race; of the valiant Yudhamanyu and Uttamauja; of the ruler of the Kosalas, the sons of Draupadi, and Shakuni the son of Subala; of Acala and Vrishaka, and king Bhagadatta; of Karna and his son of great wrath; of those great bowmen, the Kekaya princes, and those mighty car-warriors, the Trigartas; of Ghatotkaca the prince of rakshasas, and the brother of Vaka, of Alambusha, the foremost of rakshasas, and king Jalasandha; and of hundreds and thousands of other kings.
Mbh.11.27.1116 The grief I feel at Karnas death is a hundred times greater than that which was caused by the death of Abhimanyu and the sons of Draupadi, and the destruction of the Pancalas and the Kurus.
Mbh.12.27.1205 SECTION XXVII Yudhishthira said, In consequence of the fall Abhimanyu of tender years, of the sons of Draupadi, of Dhrishtadyumna, of Virata, of king Drupada, of Vasusena conversant with every duty, of the royal Dhrishtaketu, and of diverse other kings hailing from diverse regions, in battle, grief does not forsake my wretched self that am a slayer of kinsmen.
Mbh.12.27.1224 Through covetousness I caused Abhimanyu of tender years, that hero who resembled a lion born in the hills, to penetrate into the array that was protected by Drona himself.
Mbh.12.42.2146 Yudhishthira accompanied by Draupadi, gave much wealth for the sake of Drona and the high-souled Karna, of Dhrishtadyumna and Abhimanyu, of the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, the son of Hidimva, and of Virata, and his other well-wishers that had served him loyally, and of Drupada and the five sons of Draupadi.
Mbh.14.61.2789 SECTION LXI Vaisampayana said, After the high-souled Vasudeva of great prowess had finished his narration of the great battle of the Bharatas before his sire, it was plain that that hero had passed over the slaughter of Abhimanyu.
Mbh.14.61.2814 When his sire Arjuna was withdrawn from the main body by the Samsaptakas who challenged to fight him separately, Abhimanyu was surrounded by the enraged Kaurava heroes headed by Drona in battle.
Mbh.14.61.2831 Alas, O Abhimanyu, thy maternal uncles, mighty car-warriors, are all hale.
Mbh.14.62.2854 SECTION LXII Vaisampayana said, Having heard these words of his son Vasudeva, that descendant of Sura, of righteous soul, casting off his grief, made excellent obsequial offerings unto Abhimanyu.
Mbh.14.62.2860 Then Vasudeva of Dasarha's race, and Valadeva, and Satyaki, and Satyaka, each performed the obsequial rites of Abhimanyu.
Mbh.14.62.2863 Deprived of Abhimanyu, they failed to obtain peace of mind.
Mbh.14.62.2879 As regards Abhimanyu, he has gone to the regions of the deities, conquered by him with his own acts.
Mbh.14.66.2990 O thou of the Dasarha race, on him depends the obsequial cake of Pandu, as also of my father-in-law, and of Abhimanyu too, blessed be thou, that darling nephew of thine who was so very like unto thee.
Mbh.14.66.2993 Uttara, O slayer of foes, always repeats the words said unto her by Abhimanyu.
Mbh.14.66.2999 O slayer of Madhu, bowing our heads unto thee, we pray thee for making those words of Abhimanyu true.
Mbh.14.67.3011 Abhimanyu, O Krishna, was the favourite of all the Pandava brothers, without doubt.
Mbh.14.67.3019 Let the son of Abhimanyu be revived.
Mbh.14.67.3021 If, O hero, this son of Abhimanyu doth not revive when thou, O irresistible one, art alive and near, of what other use wilt thou be to me?
Mbh.14.67.3022 Do thou, therefore, O irresistible one, revive this son of Abhimanyu, this child possessed of eyes similar to his, even as a rain-charged cloud revives the lifeless crops on a field.
Mbh.14.68.3044 O Janarddana, both Abhimanyu and myself have been equally slain.
Mbh.14.68.3055 O foremost of all beings, at the death of this heir of Abhimanyu of restless eyes, all the hopes in my breast have been destroyed.
Mbh.14.68.3056 Abhimanyu of restless eyes, O slayer of Madhu, was exceedingly dear to thee.
Mbh.14.68.3059 I had, before this, vowed, O Kesava, that if Abhimanyu fell on the field of battle, O hero, I would follow him without any loss of time.
Mbh.14.69.3089 As truth and righteousness are always established in me, let this dead child of Abhimanyu revive by the merit of these!
Mbh.14.70.3107 Since this child of Abhimanyu has been born at a time when this race has become nearly extinct, let his name be Parikshit'
Mbh.14.72.3193 That hero, the father of Abhimanyu, will protect the steed.
Mbh.14.78.3438 Even as that slayer of hostile heroes, Parikshit, has been born of Abhimanyu, so has this mighty-armed child, my grandson, sprung from Suratha.
Mbh.15.21.867 Indeed, thinking of the slaughter of the youthful Abhimanyu on the field of battle, of the mighty-armed Karna who never retreated from the fray, of the sons of Draupadi, and of other friends of theirs, those heroes became exceedingly cheerless.
Mbh.15.25.972 She is the wife of that Abhimanyu who, while divested of his car, was slain by Drona and others fighting from their cars
Mbh.15.31.1254 Kunti also shall behold Karna, and she of Yadu's race shall behold her son Abhimanyu.
Mbh.18.1.36 I desire to see, O Narada, Virata and Drupada and the other great Kshatriyas headed by Dhrishtaketu, as also Shikhandi, the Pancala prince, the sons of Draupadi, and Abhimanyu, irresistible in battle.
Mbh.18.4.220 Even he is the mighty bowman Abhimanyu, now endued with the gentle effulgence of the great luminary of the night.
Mbh.18.5.248 Somas son of great prowess, named Varchas of mighty energy, became Abhimanyu, the son of Phalguna, that lion among men.
