MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.2.363 The high-souled Vyasa composed these hundred parvas of which the above is only an abridgement: having distributed them into eighteen, the son of Suta recited them consecutively in the forest of Naimisha as follows: In the Adi parva are contained Paushya, Pauloma, Astika, Adivansavatara, Samva, the burning of the house of lac, the slaying of Hidimba, the destruction of the Asura Vaka, Chitraratha, the Swayamvara of Draupadi, her marriage after the overthrow of rivals in war, the arrival of Vidura, the restoration, Arjuna's exile, the abduction of Subhadra, the gift and receipt of the marriage dower, the burning of the Khandava forest, and the meeting with the Asura-architect Maya.
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.1.2.391 Then is narrated the ascent on the hills of Kailasa by Bhimasena, his terrific battle with the mighty Yakshas headed by Hanuman; then the meeting of the Pandavas with Vaisravana Kuvera, and the meeting with Arjuna after he had obtained for the purpose of Yudhishthira many celestial weapons; then Arjuna's terrible encounter with the Nivatakavachas dwelling in Hiranyaparva, and also with the Paulomas, and the Kalakeyas; their destruction at the hands of Arjuna; the commencement of the display of the celestial weapons by Arjuna before Yudhishthira, the prevention of the same by Narada; the descent of the Pandavas from Gandhamadana; the seizure of Bhima in the forest by a mighty serpent huge as the mountain; his release from the coils of the snake, upon Yudhishthira's answering certain questions; the return of the Pandavas to the Kamyaka woods.
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.1.2.434 In this the high-souled Vasudeva by reasons based on the philosophy of final release drove away Arjuna's compunction springing from the latter's regard for his kindred whom he was on the eve of slaying.
Mbh.1.134.7187 Arjuna's devotion to the service of his preceptor as also to arms was very great and he soon became the favourite of his preceptor.
Mbh.1.135.7272 Beholding Arjuna's readiness, Drona considered him to be the foremost of all his pupils, and became highly pleased.
Mbh.1.139.7431 And Duryodhana, O monarch, having obtained Karna in this way, banished his fears arising out of Arjuna's proficiency in arms.
Mbh.1.158.8295 There is little doubt that, having by means of Bhima's and Arjuna's prowess conquered the whole earth with her belt of seas, he will enjoy the sovereignty thereof.
Mbh.1.191.9532 And incensed at finding the strength and energy of Arjuna's arms unequalled on the earth, Karna, the son of Surya, fought with greater vigour.
Mbh.1.222.10877 And because Arjuna's son was born upon his return from exile during which he had achieved many celebrated feats, that child came to be called Srutakarman.
Mbh.1.227.11112 Pierced all over with Arjuna's shafts, the birds dropped down into the burning forest, uttering loud cries.
Mbh.1.228.11130 He made great efforts to escape from that fire; but confined by Arjuna's shafts he succeeded not in finding a way.
Mbh.1.229.11213 Cut off by Arjuna's arrows, no one amongst the innumerable creatures could escape from the burning forest.
Mbh.2.46.1910 Duryodhana replied, O uncle, beholding this whole earth owning the sway of Yudhishthira in consequence of the might of the illustrious Arjuna's weapons and beholding also that sacrifice of the son of Pritha like unto the sacrifice of Sakra himself of great glory among the celestials, I, being filled with jealousy and burning day and night, am being dried up like a shallow tank in the summer season.
Mbh.3.33.1709 Destroy the might of Dhritarashtra's sons, O son of Pritha, with my and Arjuna's aid.
Mbh.3.37.1905 Taking hold of Arjuna's hands, with a smiling face and in gentle accents, that chastiser of foes, the virtuous Yudhishthira, apparently after reflecting for a moment, spake these words in private unto Dhananjaya, O Bharata, the whole science of arms dwelleth in Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and Drona's son.
Mbh.3.38.1996 O sinless one, hear in detail the particulars about Arjuna's meeting with the three-eyed god of gods, and his contact with the illustrious god's person!
Mbh.3.38.2015 And bowing unto that god of gods, they informed him of Arjuna's austerities saying, This son of pritha possessed of great energy is engaged in the most difficult of ascetic austerities on the breast of the Himavat.
Mbh.3.38.2022 I know the desire that is in Arjuna's heart.
Mbh.3.45.2338 SECTION XLV Vaisampayana said, One day, knowing that Arjuna's glances were cast upon Urvasi, Vasava, calling Chitrasena to himself, addressed him in private saying, O king of Gandharvas, I am pleased; go thou as my messenger to that foremost of Apsaras, Urvasi, and let her wait upon that tiger among men, Phalguna.
Mbh.3.46.2366 And, O best of men, Urvasi of beautiful eyes, having arrived at the gate of Arjuna's abode, sent word through the keeper in attendance.
Mbh.3.48.2478 Vaisampayana said, Amvika's son, king Dhritarashtra, having heard of Arjuna's arrival and stay at Indra's abode, from Dwaipayana, that foremost of Rishis, spake unto Sanjaya, saying, O charioteer, dost thou know in detail the acts of the intelligent Arjuna, of which I have heard from beginning to end?
Mbh.3.48.2496 As the rays of the sun heat this mobile and immobile universe, so will the shafts shot by Arjuna's hands scorch my sons.
Mbh.3.48.2497 It seemeth to me that the Chamus of the Bharatas, terrified at the clatter of Arjuna's chariot-wheels, are already broken through in all directions.
Mbh.3.49.2522 The arrows urged by the might of Arjuna's arms and shot from his large bow, and inspired with mantras capable of converting them into celestial weapons can chastise the celestials themselves.
Mbh.3.116.6018 Then the descendant of Bhrigu, the exterminator of hostile heroes, put forth his valour on the field of battle, and with sharpened arrows with flattened tips, which were shot from a beautiful bow, cut down Arjuna's arms, which numbered a thousand, and were massive like wooden bolts for barring the door.
Mbh.3.118.6057 the ruler of the world, accompanied by Krishna bathed in those holy spots, and speaking of Arjuna's valour in laudatory terms delightfully spent his time in the place.
Mbh.3.120.6135 I know the power of Arjuna's son, he conducts himself like the son of Krishna in the field of battle.
Mbh.3.150.7702 Remaining on the flagstaff of Arjuna's car will I emit fierce shouts that will damp the energy of thy foes.
Mbh.3.156.7838 SECTION CLVI Vaisampayana continued, Thus dwelling with the Brahmanas in that best of mountains, in expectation of Arjuna's return, when the Pandavas had grown confident and when all those Rakshasas together with Bhima's son had departed, one day while Bhimasena was away, a Rakshasa all of a sudden carried off Yudhishthira the just and the twins and Krishna.
Mbh.3.250.12392 Or perhaps fear hath possessed thee at the sight of Arjuna's prowess.
Mbh.4.36.1460 It was by him that the reins were held of Arjuna's excellent steeds when Agni consumed the forest of Khandava.
Mbh.4.43.1637 SECTION XLIII Vrihannala said, That about which thou hath first enquired is Arjuna's bow, of world-wide fame, called Gandiva, capable of devastating hostile hosts.
Mbh.4.45.1704 And he speedily alighted from the tree, bringing with him Arjuna's weapons.
Mbh.4.47.1838 Everything is in confusion for Drona's having only heard the neigh of Arjuna's steeds.
Mbh.4.51.1975 Aswatthaman said, O bull among men, these thy just observations, need not be uttered in our presence; the preceptor, however, filled with wrath, had spoken of Arjuna's virtues.
Mbh.4.54.2079 The illustrious and heroic Karna, however counteracting with numberless arrows of his own those shafts by Arjuna's hand, soon burst forth in view with bow and arrows like a blazing fire.
Mbh.4.55.2109 Foes were able to behold Arjuna's car, when near, only once, for immediately after, they were with their horses, sent to the other world.
Mbh.4.55.2114 And ranging in all directions and shooting arrows right and left, Arjuna's bow was always to be seen drawn to a perfect circle.
Mbh.4.55.2122 And tossed and mangled by the Arjuna-gale, the forest of Arjuna's foes reddened the earth with purple secretions.
Mbh.4.57.2211 But that heavy and polished mace hurled by Kripa was sent back along its course, struck by means of Arjuna's arrows.
Mbh.4.58.2226 And beholding those excellent steeds red in hue mingling in battle with Arjuna's steeds of swan-like whiteness endued with the speed of the mind, all the spectators were filled with wonder.
Mbh.4.58.2247 And discharging at Arjuna's car innumerable whetted arrows possessed of solar effulgence, he entirely shrouded the light of the sun.
Mbh.4.58.2280 And beholding Partha's infallibility, training, fleetness of hand, and the range also of Arjuna's, arrows, Drona became amazed.
Mbh.4.62.2424 And loud was the clatter made by Arjuna's shafts as they cleft the coats of mail belonging to mighty warriors, made of steel, silver, and copper.
Mbh.4.66.2594 Vaisampayana continued, Agreeable to Arjuna's words, Uttara speedily ordered the messengers, saying, Go ye and proclaim the king's victory.
Mbh.4.71.2758 Vaisampayana continued, After Arjuna had pointed out those heroes, the five Pandavas, the son of Virata then spoke of Arjuna's prowess.
Mbh.5.29.1287 It buried itself deep in Arjuna's heart.
Mbh.5.52.2963 Like the case of Indra, victory is always Arjuna's, who hath for his charioteer in battle Hrishikesa, endued with the same character and position.
Mbh.5.52.2971 As a tremendous conflagration, wandering in all directions, of swelling flames and urged by the wind, consumeth dry leaves and grass, so will the great fame of Arjuna's weapons consume all my troops.
Mbh.5.56.3130 Tell us now what sort of steeds are yoked unto Arjuna's car and what sort of banners are set up on it'
Mbh.5.56.3131 Sanjaya said, O great king, the celestial artificer called Tashtri or Bhaumana, aided by Sakra and Dhatri, created forms of diverse kinds and great beauty for Arjuna's car.
Mbh.5.59.3245 And I beheld Kesava's feet resting upon Arjuna's lap while those of the high-souled Arjuna rested upon the laps of Krishna and Satyabhama.
Mbh.5.163.7400 If thou fliest beyond the limits of the three worlds, if thou sinkest into the depths of the earth, thou shalt, even at these places, behold Arjuna's car tomorrow morning.
Mbh.6.19.918 Behind Arjuna was Yuyudhana of mighty strength; and the two princes of Panchala, viz, Yudhamanyu and Uttamaujas, became protectors of Arjuna's wheels, along with the Kekaya brothers, and Dhrishtaketu, and Chekitana of great valour, This Bhimasena, wielding his mace made of the hardest metal, and moving on the field of battle with fierce speed, can dry up the very ocean.
Mbh.6.19.927 Transcending the huge standards on all the cars on thy side and that of the enemy, was the one gigantic ape on Arjuna's car.
Mbh.6.23.1014 SECTION XXIII Sanjaya said, Beholding the Dhartarashtra army approach for fight, Krishna said these words for Arjuna's benefit
Mbh.6.47.2363 And Kritavarman, and Kripa, and Salya also, O sire, piercing Arjuna's son, all failed to make him waver, for he stood firm like the Mainaka mountain.
Mbh.6.55.2931 Drona's son, however, quickly pierced Arjuna's son with many winged arrows, and Salya pierced him with twelve, and Kripa with three sharp arrows.
Mbh.6.55.2946 And those thousands of elephants and hundreds of kings, when they came within reach of Arjuna's arrows, were all unable to make any further advance.
Mbh.6.55.2954 And kings were seen felled or falling from cars and elephants and steeds in consequence of Arjuna's shafts.
Mbh.6.57.3032 And Arjuna's son Abhimanyu, and Satyaki, both advanced against the forces of Suvala's son.
Mbh.6.59.3173 And that foremost of bowmen, the chief of the Sinis, quickly rushing at those troops, came to Arjuna's side like Vishnu coming to the aid of the slayer of Vritra.
Mbh.6.99.5328 Then king Duryodhana once more addressing his brother, said, Yudhamanyu protects the left wheel of Arjuna's car, and Uttamaujas his right wheel.
Mbh.6.101.5395 Then the angry Rakshasa, having in that battle got Arjuna's son within reach, began to rout his ranks, even those that stood not far from him.
Mbh.6.102.5430 Then, O Bharata, that wanderer of the night, endued with great activity, afflicted Arjuna's son in that combat with a thousand arrows.
Mbh.6.102.5437 And similarly the gold-decked arrows shot by Arjuna's son, piercing Alamvusha through, entered the earth.
Mbh.6.105.5598 Arjuna's son Abhimanyu pierced by Chitrasena with many shafts, deeply pierced Chitrasena in the chest with three arrows.
Mbh.6.117.6342 Then in that battle, Arjuna's son, inflamed with wrath, hurled at Duryodhana's car a terrible dart resembling the rod of Death himself.
Mbh.6.117.6344 Beholding that dart of his drop down on the earth, Arjuna's wrathful son pierced Duryodhana with three shafts in his arms and chest.
Mbh.6.117.6346 And the battle, O Bharata, that took place between those two heroes, viz, Subhadra's son, and that bull of Kuru's race, the former fighting for compassing Bhishma's death and the latter for Arjuna's defeat, was fierce and interesting to behold, and gratifying to the senses, and was applauded by all the kings.
Mbh.6.118.6470 And the earth was soon covered all on all sides with the retreating troops of those kings, routed in consequence of the shafts shot from Arjuna's arms.
Mbh.7.3.109 Beholding him who was always an island unto persons sinking in the fathomless ocean in their endeavours to cross it, beholding that hero covered with arrows that had coursed in a stream as continuous as that of Yamuna, that hero who looked like Mainaka of unbearable energy thrown down on the earth by the great Indra, that warrior lying prostrate on the earth like the Sun dropped down from the firmament, that one who looked like the inconceivable Indra himself after his defeat of old by Vritra, that depriver of all warriors of their senses, that foremost of all combatants, that signal of all bowmen, beholding that hero and bull among men, viz, thy sire Bhishma of high vows, that grandsire of the Bharatas thrown down in battle and lying covered with Arjuna's shafts, on a hero's bed.
Mbh.7.10.389 That foremost of all persons conversant with weapons, who has been reared almost on Drupada's lap, O, what warriors of my army surrounded that Sikhandin protected by Arjuna's weapons, for keeping him away from Drona?
Mbh.7.14.622 Thereupon, Arjuna's son felled his antagonist's standard and umbrella and bow on earth
Mbh.7.14.625 Then Arjuna's son quickly fixed an arrow on his bow-string that was certain to take away Paurava's life.
Mbh.7.14.634 Beholding Paurava thus prostrated, placed under the control of Arjuna's son, and dragged helplessly, Jayadratha was unable to brook it.
Mbh.7.14.637 The lances and aves and scimitars hurled by his foes, Arjuna's son cut off by means of his sword or warded off by his shield.
Mbh.7.14.646 Then Arjuna's son also, that combat with the sword being over, ascended his own excellent car.
Mbh.7.14.651 Thereupon, Arjuna's son, jumping up, caught hold of that dart, like Garuda catching a mighty snake falling from above.
Mbh.7.17.802 Then Duryodhana's troops, filled with joy at Arjuna's absence from Yudhishthira's side, became furious for the seizure of Yudhishthira.
Mbh.7.18.822 Then deeply pierced Arjuna's diadem with thirty shafts, endued with the strength of adamant with those shafts equipped with wings of gold fixed on his diadem, Arjuna, as if decked with ornaments of gold, shone like the newly risen sun.
Mbh.7.19.852 Confounded by those diverse images after the form of Arjuna, the troops began to strike each other, each regarding the other as Arjuna's self'
Mbh.7.19.880 No longer holding in their grasp the swords that had served for their nails, with their coats of mail tom, and the joints of their bones broken, foot-soldiers with their vital limbs cut open, helplessly laid themselves down on the field, slain by means of Arjuna's arrows.
Mbh.7.19.882 And the air was purified of the dust that had arisen, by means of the showers of blood caused by Arjuna's arrows.
Mbh.7.23.1128 Arjuna's maternal uncle Purujit, otherwise called Kuntibhoja, came borne by excellent steeds of the colour of the rainbow.
Mbh.7.24.1306 Arjuna's son then pierced him with a dozen shafts, and Yuyutsu with ten, and each of the sons of Draupadi pierced him with three shafts and Dhrishtaketu also pierced him with three.
Mbh.7.25.1329 Beholding the Pandava host broken by Bhagadatta, and summoned on the other hand by the Samsaptakas, Arjuna's heart was divided in twain.
Mbh.7.25.1331 Reflecting with the aid of his understanding, O perpetuator of Kuru's race, Arjuna's heart, at last, was firmly fixed on the slaughter of the Samsaptakas.
Mbh.7.25.1342 Many elephants again, with riders on their backs, crushed by means of Arjuna's shafts, fell down, deprived of life, shorn of the embroidered cloths on their backs, and with their housings torn.
Mbh.7.26.1374 That encounter between Arjuna's car and Bhagadatta's elephant was fierce in the extreme.
Mbh.7.27.1400 He then hurled some lances at Arjuna's head and uttered a loud shout.
Mbh.7.27.1401 In consequence of those lances Arjuna's diadem was displaced.
Mbh.7.27.1406 Filled then with rage, he with Mantras, turned his hook into the Vaishnava weapon and hurled it at Arjuna's breast.
Mbh.7.28.1468 Then a thick darkness appeared and covered Arjuna's car, and from within that gloom harsh voices rebuked Arjuna.
Mbh.7.28.1474 Upon all his illusions being destroyed, afflicted with Arjuna's shafts and unmanned by fear, Sakuni fled away, aided by his fleet, steeds, like a vulgar wretch.
Mbh.7.30.1600 Possessed of great fame and endued as he was with the energy of the Sun himself, Arjuna's emblem, viz, his banner bearing the ape, was beheld by us to blaze with splendour.
Mbh.7.30.1612 Resisting Arjuna's weapons thus by his own, Karna uttered loud shouts and shot many shafts at his antagonist.
Mbh.7.30.1614 The son of Radha, however, checking Arjuna's weapons by his own arrowy showers, cut off with three sharp shafts the bows of those three warriors.
Mbh.7.32.1705 In a body they rushed towards Arjuna's son, desirous 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.7.34.1767 Then Arjuna's son, superior to Arjuna's self eased in golden mail and owning an excellent standard that bore the device of a Karnikara tree, fearlessly encountered, from desire of battle, warriors headed by Drona, like a lion-cub assailing a herd of elephants.
Mbh.7.34.1771 And during the progress of that awful battle, Arjuna's son, in the very sight of Drona, breaking that array, penetrated into it.
Mbh.7.34.1777 And Arjuna's son cut off by thousands the arms of those warriors.
Mbh.7.34.1803 Indeed, Arjuna's son, having achieved in battle feats incapable of being borne by his foes, everywhere mangled large divisions of foot-soldiers belonging to thy army.
Mbh.7.36.1853 SECTION XXXVI Dhritarashtra said, While Arjuna's son was thus grinding, by means of his straight arrows, our foremost bowmen, what warriors of my army endeavoured to check him'
Mbh.7.36.1856 Arjuna's son however.
Mbh.7.36.1862 After Salya's brother had thus been slain, many followers of his, loudly proclaiming their families, places of residence, and names, rushed against Arjuna's son, filled with rage and armed With diverse weapons.
Mbh.7.39.1964 Like a burning brand thrown into the midst of dry grass, Arjuna's son began to consume his foes, quickly careering through the Kaurava army.
Mbh.7.43.2057 SECTION XLIII Sanjaya said, Engaged in taking the lives of brave warriors, Arjuna's son then resembled the Destroyer himself, when the latter takes the lives of all creatures on the arrival of the Universal Dissolution.
Mbh.7.43.2074 Within the twinkling of an eye, those princes, by means of their shafts of golden wings, and of diverse forms and great impetuosity, made Arjuna's son invisible.
Mbh.7.44.2104 Like one infuriated elephant encountering another, Arjuna's son then encountered thy invincible grandson, Lakshmana, of great personal beauty, endued with great bravery, staying near his father with outstretched bow, brought up in every luxury, and resembling a second prince of the Yakshas.
Mbh.7.46.2169 Leaving Aswatthaman alone, Arjuna's son struck Salya, in return, fearlessly pierced him in the chest with highly nine shafts, equipped with vulture's feathers.
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.7.69.2964 Therefore, it is not easy for any desirable thing that might have been unattained by him to bring back into the world Arjuna's son slain in battle and now residing in heaven.
Mbh.7.71.3133 Transcending Arjuna's voice the sound of that bow rose and touched the very heavens.
Mbh.7.75.3274 Thus addressed, Vasudeva, with a cheerless heart, wending to Arjuna's abode, began to comfort his sorrowing sister afflicted with grief on account of the death of her son'
Mbh.7.77.3398 This night will bring on its train the auspicious morn for Arjuna's victory
Mbh.7.82.3614 And those two invincible warriors, those two heroes, viz, Yuyudhana, and Janardana, together proceeded on the same car to Arjuna's pavilion.
Mbh.7.86.3787 Many thousands of ravens and crows, O Bharata, proceeded sporting on the front of Arjuna's car.
Mbh.7.86.3807 And the ape on Arjuna's banner, opening his mouth wide, made an awful noise with the other creatures on it, for terrifying thy troops.
Mbh.7.86.3822 Those brave warriors incapable of brooking Arjuna's feats and desirous of vanquishing him, had no distinct perception as to when their heads were struck off by Arjuna.
Mbh.7.88.3896 Struck with Arjuna's shafts, thousands of steeds fell down like swans on the breast of Himavat, struck down by the force of watery current.
Mbh.7.90.4051 Meanwhile Srutayus and Achyutayus were, by Arjuna's arrowy showers, deprived of their arms and heads.
Mbh.7.90.4094 Then that hero, uplifting his mace, stopped the progress of Arjuna's car by its strokes, and struck Kesava also therewith.
Mbh.7.96.4411 Nobody else's car had ever before moved with such speed in battle as Arjuna's car, moving with the celerity of a wish cherished in the mind.
Mbh.7.96.4413 Arrived in the midst of that throng of cars, those excellent steeds bore Arjuna's car with difficulty, suffering as they did from hunger, thirst, and toil, and mangled as they had been with the weapons of many heroes delighting in battle.
Mbh.7.96.4416 Filled with joy, they pierced Arjuna with four and sixty shafts, and Janardana with seventy, and the four steeds of Arjuna's car with a hundred arrows.
Mbh.7.101.4698 And while that awful and fierce noise continued, a noise that inspired the timid with fear and the brave with cheers, and while drums and Jharjharas, and cymbals and Mridangas, O great king, were beat by thousands, great car-warriors invited to the Kuru side and solicitous of Dhananjaya's welfare, those great bowmen, filled with rage and unable to bear the loud blast of Arjuna's and Krishna's conchs, those kings from diverse realms supported by their respective troops, in rage blew their great conchs, desiring to answer with their own blasts the blasts of Kesava and Arjuna.
Mbh.7.107.5002 Indeed, while the heroic protectors of the ruler of the Sindhus were fighting, and while the Dhartarashtras were roaring in front of Arjuna's car, the twang of Gandiva could not be heard.
Mbh.7.107.5041 Loud uproars are being heard against Arjuna's car.
Mbh.7.108.5130 O king, let no fear be thine today on Arjuna's account.
Mbh.7.108.5145 For all that, however, O sire, my heart doth not become easy on Arjuna's account.
Mbh.7.111.5385 I think, beholding Krishna of Dasarha's race and that bull of Sini's race also both engaged for Arjuna's sake my sons are filled with grief.
Mbh.7.123.6114 For Arjuna's sake, O thou of mighty arms, as also for the sake of Satwata, my grief increaseth like a blazing fire fed with libations of clarified butter.
Mbh.7.127.6356 The two protectors of the wheels of Arjuna's car, viz, the Panchala princes, Yudhamanyu and Uttamaujas, were at that time proceeding towards Savyasachin by the skirts of the Kuru array.
Mbh.7.128.6380 Dhritarashtra said, How raged that battle, in the neighbourhood of Arjuna's car, between those two mighty car-warriors, viz, Bhima and Karna, both of whom are endued with great strength?
Mbh.7.128.6388 How, indeed, did those two heroes, viz, the Suta's son and Vrikodara, fight with each other in that encounter which took place in the vicinity of Arjuna's car?
Mbh.7.132.6577 Who is there that would, hopeful of life, approach that Bhima who, in Arjuna's quest, alone entered my host, having ground Drona himself?
Mbh.7.133.6651 Gladdening Partha himself and the illustrious Kesava, Satyaki and the two protectors of two wheels of Arjuna's car, Bhima fought even thus with Karna.
Mbh.7.136.6823 Soon, however, he recollected Arjuna's vow.
Mbh.7.137.6876 Having done a great wrong to the diadem-decked Arjuna, how can the ruler of the Sindhus, if he falls within Arjuna's sight, save his life?
Mbh.7.137.6877 From circumstantial inference, I see, O Sanjaya, how can the ruler of the Sindhus, if he falls within Arjuna's sight, save his life?
Mbh.7.140.7092 But deprived of reason, and forbidden by Krishna and the high-souled Partha, Bhima, and the two protectors of the two wheels of Arjuna's car, viz, Yudhamanyu and Uttamaujas, and Aswatthaman, and Kripa and Karna, and Vrishasena, and the ruler of the Sindhus also, and while the soldiers were yet uttering shouts of disapproval, Satyaki stew Bhurisravas while in the observance of his vow.
Mbh.7.142.7224 Indeed, the son of Saradwata's daughter piercing Partha with ten shafts and Vasudeva with seven, stayed in the track of Arjuna's car, protecting the ruler of the Sindhus.
Mbh.7.142.7251 Karna also, that slayer of hosts, desirous of counteracting Arjuna's feat, covered Arjuna with several thousands of arrows.
Mbh.7.144.7491 And how also did the two protectors of the wheels of Arjuna's car, viz, the two Panchala princes, fight'
Mbh.7.144.7505 The two protectors of Arjuna's car-wheels, viz, Yudhamanyu and Uttamaujas, abandoning Dhananjaya's car, proceeded against the son of Radha.
Mbh.7.155.8351 Upon Arjuna's fall, Krishna and the uterine brothers of Arjuna will never be able to enjoy the sovereignty of the earth without Arjuna to aid them.
Mbh.7.165.8914 That Rakshasa, O king, looked beautiful like a loose heap of antimony, and he withstood the advancing Arjuna, like Meru withstanding a tempest, scattering showers of arrows, O monarch, upon Arjuna's head.
Mbh.7.168.9082 Hearing then the rattle of Arjuna's car as also that twang of Gandiva, the Suta's son, O king, said these words unto Duryodhana, Slaughtering our entire army and the foremost of heroic warriors and many mighty bowmen among the Kauravas, Arjuna is loudly twanging his bow.
Mbh.7.168.9090 Hear, O tiger among car-warriors, the sound of drums and cymbals near Arjuna's car at dead of night, resembling the deep roll of thunder in the welkin.
Mbh.7.168.9091 Hear also the loud wails of afflicted combatants and the tremendous leonine shouts, and diverse other noises in the vicinity of Arjuna's car.
Mbh.7.180.9803 It is for that, that this certain means of Arjuna's death hath been baffled.
Mbh.7.186.10226 Whatever feats Drona performed for vanquishing the son of Kunti, were all counteracted by Arjuna's performing similar feats.
Mbh.7.198.11058 In consequence of the lightness of Arjuna's arms, and owing also to the fiery force that shrouded Bhima, none could see that the latter had been covered with the Varuna weapon.
Mbh.7.198.11324 Like Kesava's and Arjuna's thy birth acts, and ascetic austerities are also superior.
Mbh.8.6.166 Unable to resist Arjuna himself, they thus slew Arjuna's son!
Mbh.8.9.318 who also said, What will Arjuna's gandiva and the two inexhaustible quivers do to that shaft of mine, smeared with cool sandal-paste, when it will course through the welkin
Mbh.8.11.443 The two Pancala princes, Yudhamanyu and Uttamauja, became the protectors of Arjuna's car wheels.
Mbh.8.31.1393 The energy of my celestial weapons is equal to the energy of Arjuna's weapons.
Mbh.8.37.1989 Why, however, dost thou indulge in Arjuna's praises?
Mbh.8.40.2082 Arjuna's gandiva and the ape-bearing banner, and Krishna's discus and the Garuda-bearing banner, inspire with fear only those that are timid.
Mbh.8.46.2547 The whole Earth, O Karna, seems to tremble, cut deep by the circumference of Arjuna's wheels.
Mbh.8.46.2561 Made by skilful artists out of cloths embroidered with gold and of diverse hues, they are blazing with resplendence on Arjuna's car as they are shaken by the wind, like flashes of lightning in a mass of clouds.
Mbh.8.53.2996 Filled with rage and longing for victory, the samsaptakas, in that battle, began to pour showers of arrows on Arjuna's head.
Mbh.8.53.3031 Thus liberated, those warriors once more shot their arrows, O sire, and hurled their weapons at Arjuna's car.
Mbh.8.56.3246 Indeed, everything completely shrouded with mighty shafts sped from Arjuna's arms and falling ceaselessly all around, looked resplendent, O lord, as if covered with snakes.
Mbh.8.63.3689 The twang also of Arjuna's bow is being heard, like the roar of the clouds in the season of rains.
Mbh.8.64.3741 Already afflicted by the energy of Arjuna's shafts, the steeds of Drona's son thereupon ran away.
Mbh.8.76.4613 Yonder the Ape on Arjuna's banner is seen in the midst of the elephant force of the enemy.
Mbh.8.76.4633 Bhima said, Since, O Visoka, thou tellest me of Arjuna's arrival, I will give thee four and ten populous villages and a hundred female slaves and twenty cars, being pleased with thee, O Suta, for this agreeable intelligence imparted by thee
Mbh.8.77.4649 While those great car-warriors in that battle were thus struck with shafts sped from Arjuna's bow, they were filled with fear and seemed to disappear one after another from their cars.
Mbh.8.79.4803 The rattle then of Arjuna's vehicle rose loud in that battle, resembling, O sire, the tremendous peal of Vasu's thunder.
Mbh.8.79.4888 Then Drona's son pierced Dhananjaya with ten foremost of shafts, and Keshava with three, and the four steeds of Dhananjaya with four, and showered many shafts on the Ape on Arjuna's banner.
Mbh.8.79.4899 Then Keshava, quickly urging Arjuna's car, placed all his afflicted foes on his right side.
Mbh.8.80.4907 Successive showers of Arjuna's shafts were seen overspread on the sky, while others were seen to slay thy army.
Mbh.8.80.4915 Like the sun piercing through masses of clouds, Arjuna's car passed through dense bodies of elephants with juicy secretions flowing down their bodies and looking like masses of clouds.
Mbh.8.80.4931 Beholding Arjuna's car proceeding in a different direction, those heroes rushed towards him.
Mbh.8.81.4956 At that time the might of Arjuna's arms was seen.
Mbh.8.81.4976 Thus struck with Arjuna's shafts that quickly slew men and steeds and cars and elephants, loud wails, O king, arose from the Kuru army.
Mbh.8.81.4982 Regarding the touch of Arjuna's shafts to be unbearable, the Kauravas, vanquished by the wielder of Gandiva, fled from the field.
Mbh.8.81.4983 Deserting Karna in that battle as they were being thus struck with Arjuna's shafts, they fled away in fear on all sides, loudly calling upon the Suta's son to rescue them.
Mbh.8.88.5414 Blown by gentle breezes, excellent floral showers, fragrant and auspicious, fell upon Arjuna's head.
Mbh.8.90.5599 SECTION Sanjaya said, Flying away in consequence of the falling of Arjuna's arrows, the broken divisions of the Kauravas, staying at a distance, continued to gaze at Arjuna's weapon swelling with energy and careering around with the effulgence of lightning.
Mbh.8.90.5636 Beholding Vaikartana aim that arrow, the high-souled ruler of the Madras, addressing Karna, said, This arrow, O Karna, will not succeed in striking off Arjuna's head.
Mbh.8.90.5648 When the car had thus been pressed down into the earth through the exertions of the slayer of Madhu, the excellent ornament of Arjuna's head, celebrated throughout the earth, the welkin, heaven, and the waters, the Suta's son swept off from the crown of his rival, with that arrow, in consequence of the very nature of that snaky weapon and the great care and wrath with which it had been shot.
Mbh.8.90.5654 Endued with great activity, that wicked-natured snake of fierce form and false vows, falling upon that diadem-decked with gold and gems, swept it away from Arjuna's head.
Mbh.8.90.5657 Indeed, that snake forcibly swept away from Arjuna's head that diadem adorned with many gems, like the thunder of Indra felling a beautiful mountain summit adorned with lofty trees bearing budding leaves and flowers.
Mbh.8.90.5668 It was for this that I could not strike off Arjuna's head.
Mbh.8.90.5725 Shafts, however, of keen points, sped from Arjuna's arms, encountering in the welkin the blazing arrows, resembling mighty snakes, sped from the arms of Adhiratha's son, destroyed them all.
Mbh.8.90.5737 While saying these words, he became exceedingly agitated by the strokes of Arjuna's arrows.
Mbh.8.90.5752 Then Karna, with a number of whetted shafts endued with great energy, cut off the string of Arjuna's bow.
Mbh.8.91.5863 Cut off with Arjuna's arrow, and deprived of life, the tall trunk of Karna endued with great splendour, with blood issuing from every wound, fell down like the thunder-riven summit of a mountain of red chalk with crimson streams running down its sides after a shower.
Mbh.8.94.6066 At the sound of the heroic Madhava's conch as also at that of Arjuna's, all the Kauravas, O best of kings, became filled with fright.
Mbh.9.4.240 Moving like flashes of lightning, and blinding our eyes, Arjuna's Gandiva is seen to resemble a circle of fire.
Mbh.9.14.820 The gold-decked arrows, O king, shot by them, speedily filled the terrace of Arjuna's car.
Mbh.9.14.822 Indeed, at that time, the Kuvara, the wheels, the shaft, the traces, the yoke, and the Anukarsha, O lord, of Arjuna's car, became entirely enveloped with arrows.
Mbh.9.19.1183 Let him hear today the terrible twang of Arjuna's bow in battle, as also the strength of all his weapons, and the might of his arms in fight.
Mbh.9.60.4343 After the high-souled Lord of all creatures had dismounted from that car, the celestial Ape that topped the mantle of Arjuna's vehicle, disappeared there and then.
Mbh.12.16.687 SECTION XVI Vaisampayana said, After the conclusion of Arjuna's speech, Bhimasena of great wrath and energy, mustering all his patience, said these words unto his eldest brother, Thou art, O monarch, conversant with all duties.
Mbh.14.66.2995 O thou of the Dasarha race, Arjuna's son said unto this daughter of Virata, Thy son, O blessed girl, will go to my maternal uncles.
Mbh.14.74.3249 Disregarding Arjuna's message, they assailed him with their shafts.
Mbh.14.74.3255 But they disregarded Arjuna's injunction.
Mbh.14.79.3490 Equipt with feathers, that shaft penetrated Arjuna's body like a snake penetrating on an anthill.
Mbh.14.84.3754 Many there were who lost their arms in consequence of Arjuna's arrows, but so stupefied were they with fear that they were not aware of the loss of that limb.
