Mbh.1.2.270 The Rishis said, We have a desire to know, O son of Suta, what is implied by the term Akshauhini that hath been used by thee.
Mbh.1.2.271 Tell us in full what is the number of horse and foot, chariots and elephants, which compose an Akshauhini for thou art fully informed'
Mbh.1.2.272 Sauti said, One chariot, one elephant, five foot-soldiers, and three horses form one Patti; three pattis make one Sena-mukha; three sena-mukhas are called a Gulma; three gulmas, a Gana; three ganas, a Vahini; three vahinis together are called a Pritana; three pritanas form a Chamu; three chamus, one Anikini; and an anikini taken ten times forms, as it is styled by those who know, an Akshauhini.
Mbh.1.2.273 O ye best of Brahmanas, arithmeticians have calculated that the number of chariots in an Akshauhini is twenty-one thousand eight hundred and seventy.
Mbh.1.2.276 These, O Brahmanas, as fully explained by me, are the numbers of an Akshauhini as said by those acquainted with the principles of numbers.
Mbh.1.2.408 The high-souled Krishna, upon these words being uttered, replied, O ye first of men, a counsellor in myself who will not fight and one Akshauhini of troops, which of these shall I give to which of you
Mbh.4.72.2813 And the king of Kasi, and also Saivya, being very friendly to Yudhishthira, arrived there, each accompanied by an Akshauhini of troops.
Mbh.4.72.2814 And the mighty Drupada, also with the heroic sons of Draupadi and the unvanquished Sikhandin, and that foremost of wielder of weapons, the invincible Dhrishtadyumna came there with another Akshauhini of troops.
Mbh.4.72.2815 And all the kings that came were not only lords of Akshauhini, but performers of sacrifices with gifts in profusion to Brahmanas, conversant with the Vedas endued with heroism, and ready to die in battle.
Mbh.5.7.204 And Kritavarman gave him a body of troops numbering an Akshauhini.
Mbh.5.8.218 He was the master, O king, of an Akshauhini and had great prowess and valour.
Mbh.5.19.818 And the army counted an Akshauhini of troops.
Mbh.5.19.820 And similarly, the powerful chief of the Chedis, Dhrishtaketu, accompanied by an Akshauhini, came to the sons of Pandu of immeasurable strength.
Mbh.5.19.821 And the king of Magadha, Jayatsena of great strength, brought with him for Yudhishthira an Akshauhini of troops.
Mbh.5.19.826 And for the high-souled sons of Pandu there were thus assembled from various directions, seven Akshauhini of troops, bristling with banners of various forms.
Mbh.5.19.828 And in the same way king Bhagadatta, gladdening the heart of Dhritarashtra's son, gave an Akshauhini of troops to him.

Mbh.5.19.838 And the two kings of Avanti, accompanied by a mighty force, brought to Duryodhana, each a separate Akshauhini of troops.
Mbh.5.19.839 And those tigers among men, the five royal brothers, the princes of Kekaya, hastened to Duryodhana with an Akshauhini of troops, and gladdened his heart.
Mbh.5.50.2877 That war-like son of Sisupala, Dhrishtaketu of great fame, who in energy is beyond comparison and who when angry is incapable of being withstood in battle, with that king of the Chedis who has joined the Pandavas at the head of an Akshauhini of his own, will the sons of Pandu fight against you.
Mbh.5.57.3148 And those two mighty car-warriors, proud of their strength and famed over all the world, have joined the Pandavas, each with a separate Akshauhini of troops.

Mbh.5.57.3150 And that lord of earth, Virata, with his two sons Sankha and Uttara, as also with those heroes Suryadatta and others, headed by Madiraksha and surrounded by one Akshauhini of troops, hath thus accompanied by brothers and sons, joined the son of Pritha.

Mbh.5.156.6923 In common parlance, however, the words Sena, Vahini, Pritana, Dhwajini, Chamu, Akshauhini, and Varuthini are used in the same sense.
Mbh.5.156.6932 And placing an Akshauhini of troops under each of those best of men, viz, Kripa, Drona, Salya, Jayadratha, the king of the Sindhus, Sudakshina the ruler of the Kamvojas, Kritavarman, Drona's son Aswatthaman, Karna, Bhurisravas, Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and the mighty Vahlika, the king used to bring them daily before him and at all hours, and speak to them.
Mbh.5.159.7039 Endued with great energy, that hero, cased in mail and armed with bows, fences, swords and quivers, quickly entered the Pandava camp, surrounded by an Akshauhini of troops.
Mbh.6.16.823 And Suvala's son Sakuni, and Salya, Jayadratha and the two princes of Avanti named Vinda and Anuvinda, and the Kekaya brothers, and Sudakshina the ruler of the Kamvojas and Srutayudha the ruler of the Kalingas, and king Jayatsena, and Vrihadvala the ruler of the Kosalas, and Kritavarman of Satwata's race, these ten tigers among men, endued with great bravery and possessing arms that looked like maces, these performers of sacrifices with plentiful gifts to Brahmanas, stood each at the head of an Akshauhini of troops.
Mbh.6.19.924 The high-souled Yajnasena, the king of the Panchalas, endued with great prowess, stationed himself behind Virata with an Akshauhini of troops for the sake of the Pandavas.

Mbh.7.109.5212 They constitute a full Akshauhini of wrathful warriors, O Bharata, and are staying carefully for my sake, well-protected by the Kuru heroes.
Mbh.7.122.6065 Saying these words, O monarch, Drupada, that master of an Akshauhini of troops, placing the Parthas at his head, rushed with speed towards Drona
Mbh.7.153.8064 Riding on it, Ghatotkacha was surrounded by a full Akshauhini of fierce-looking Rakshasas armed with lances and heavy clubs and rocks and trees.
Mbh.7.153.8160 Having burnt with his shafts a full Akshauhini of Rakshasa troops, Aswatthaman shone resplendent like the divine Maheswara in heaven after the burning of the triple city
Mbh.7.153.8189 Within the twinkling of an eye, he destroyed, by means of his sharp shafts, a full Akshauhini of Rakshasa troops with steeds, drivers, cars, and elephants, in the very sight of Bhimasena and Hidimva's son and Prishata's son and the twins and Dharma's son and Vijaya and Achyuta
Mbh.7.177.9682 Quickly falling down, the Rakshasa with his gigantic and still increasing body, desirous of benefiting the Pandavas, slew a full Akshauhini of thy troops while he himself breathed his last.
Mbh.7.198.11250 We then beheld a wonderful sight, viz, a full Akshauhini of the Pandava troops laid low.
Mbh.7.198.11273 This fiery weapon, however, having slain only one Akshauhini of troops, hath been pacified.
Mbh.8.62.3636 Indeed, Nakula and Sahadeva and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata, surrounded by a full Akshauhini of troops, thus proceeded towards Yudhishthira.
Mbh.9.22.1514 Beholding even a full Akshauhini of troops slain by Bhimasena in battle, the carnage did not still cease, in consequence of either the folly or the covetousness of the Dhartarashtras!
