MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.86.4818 I have heard that some time after he again entered the region of the celestials in company with Vasuman, Ashtaka, Pratarddana, and Sivi'
Mbh.1.88.4867 And as he was falling, he was beheld by that foremost of royal sages, viz, Ashtaka, the protector of his own religion.
Mbh.1.88.4868 Ashtaka beholding him, enquired, Who art thou, O youth of a beauty equal to that of Indra, in splendour blazing as the fire, thus falling from on high?
Mbh.1.89.4888 Ashtaka then replied, Thou sayest, O monarch, that he who is older in years is worthy of regard.
Mbh.1.89.4907 O Ashtaka, I never suffer myself to be overcome by fear, nor do I ever entertain grief, knowing for certain that I shall be in the world what the great disposer of all hath ordained.
Mbh.1.89.4910 Therefore, O Ashtaka, why should I grieve?
Mbh.1.89.4913 Possessed of every virtue, king Yayati who was the maternal grandfather of Ashtaka, while staying in the welkin, at the conclusion of his speech, was again questioned by Ashtaka.
Mbh.1.90.4935 SECTION XC Sambhava Parva continued Ashtaka said, Capable of assuming any form at will, thou hast lived for a million years in the gardens of Nandana.
Mbh.1.90.4938 Ashtaka said, I am extremely anxious to know how in the other world men can lose virtue.
Mbh.1.90.4946 Ashtaka said, When life is destroyed with age, vultures, peacocks, insects, and worms eat up the human body.
Mbh.1.90.4954 Ashtaka asked, For what sin are beings, when they fall from heaven, attacked by these fierce and sharp-toothed Rakshasas?
Mbh.1.90.4962 Ashtaka said, O tell me, I ask thee because I have my doubts.
Mbh.1.90.4970 It is thus, O Ashtaka, that the gross and visible body developeth from the subtile essence'
Mbh.1.90.4971 Ashtaka asked, After death, the body is burnt, or otherwise destroyed.
Mbh.1.90.4979 Ashtaka said, How, O father, do men attain to those superior regions whence there is no return to earthly life?
Mbh.1.91.4995 SECTION XCI Sambhava Parva continued Ashtaka said, Those cognisant of the Vedas differ in opinion as to how the followers of each of the four modes of life, viz, Grihasthas, Bhikshus, Brahmacharins, and Vanaprashthas, should conduct themselves in order to acquire religious merit
Mbh.1.91.5006 Ashtaka asked, How many kinds of Munis are there observers of the vow of the silence'
Mbh.1.91.5008 Ashtaka enquired what is meant by Muni'
Mbh.1.92.5024 SECTION XCII Sambhava Parva continued Ashtaka asked, Who amongst these, O king, both exerting constantly like the Sun and the Moon, first attaineth to communion with Brahma, the ascetic or the man of knowledge'
Mbh.1.92.5036 Ashtaka said, O king, thou lookest like a young man; thou art handsome and decked with a celestial garland.
Mbh.1.92.5046 Ashtaka said, Thou art acquainted with everything.
Mbh.1.92.5050 Ashtaka said, If there are worlds for me to enjoy, as fruits of my religious merits, in heaven, O king, I give them all unto thee.
Mbh.1.93.5099 Ashtaka then said, O king, each of us has expressed his desire to give thee worlds that each of us has acquired by his religious merits.
Mbh.1.93.5105 Ashtaka then said, Whose are those five golden cars that we see?
Mbh.1.93.5108 Ashtaka said, O king, ride on those cars thyself and repair to heaven.
Mbh.1.93.5115 Then Ashtaka, breaking the silence asked, I had always thought that Indra was my especial friend, and that I, of all others, should first obtain admittance into heaven.
Mbh.1.93.5120 Vaisampayana continued, After this, Ashtaka, impelled by curiosity, again asked his maternal grandfather resembling Indra himself, saying, O king, I ask thee, tell me truly, whence thou art, who thou art, and whose son?
Mbh.1.93.5131 O Ashtaka, all I have told thee, Pratardana, and Vasumat, is Truth itself.
Mbh.2.8.349 Vysawa; Saswa and Krishaswa, and king Sasavindu; Rama the son of Dasaratha, and Lakshmana, and Pratarddana; Alarka, and Kakshasena, Gaya, and Gauraswa; Rama the son of Jamadagnya, Nabhaga, and Sagara; Bhuridyumna and Mahaswa, Prithaswa, and also Janaka; king Vainya, Varisena, Purujit, and Janamejaya; Brahmadatta, and Trigarta, and king Uparichara also; Indradyumna, Bhimajanu, Gauraprishta, Nala, Gaya; Padma and Machukunda, Bhuridyumna, Prasenajit; Aristanemi, Sudymna, Prithulauswa, and Ashtaka also; a hundred kings of the Matsya race and hundred of the Vipa and a hundred of the Haya races; a hundred kings of the name of Dhritarashtra, eighty kings of the name of Janamejaya; a hundred monarchs called Brahmadatta, and a hundred kings of the name of Iri; more than two hundred Bhishmas, and also a hundred Bhimas; a hundred Prativindhyas, a hundred Nagas, and a hundred Palasas, and a hundred called Kasa and Kusa; that king of kings Santanu, and thy father Pandu, Usangava, Sata-ratha, Devaraja, Jayadratha; the intelligent royal sage Vrishadarva with his ministers; and a thousand other kings known by the name of Sasa-vindu, and who have died, having performed many grand horse-sacrifices with large presents to the Brahmanas, these holy royal sages of grand achievements and great knowledge of the Sastras, wait upon, O King, and worship the son of Vivaswat in that assembly house.
Mbh.3.93.4971 Bathing in those tirthas, thou also, O Bharata, wilt acquire without doubt the regions difficult of acquisition that Kartavirya and Ashtaka, the royal sage Lomapada and the imperial and heroic Bharata only had earned.
Mbh.3.197.9962 And Markandeya said, There came unto the horse-sacrifice of king Ashtaka of Viswamitra's race, many kings.
Mbh.3.197.9964 And after the sacrifice was completed, Ashtaka was proceeding on his car along with his brothers when they all beheld Narada coming that way and they saluted the celestial Rishi and said unto him, Ride thou on this car with us.
Mbh.3.197.9970 Thus questioned the Rishi said, This Ashtaka shall first come down'
Mbh.3.197.9972 And the Rishi answered, I lived for a few days in the abode of Ashtaka.
Mbh.3.197.9974 And beholding those kine I asked Ashtaka whose they were and Ashtaka answered me, saying, I have given away these kine.
Mbh.3.197.9976 It is for this answer of his that Ashtaka shall have to come down'
Mbh.4.56.2164 And seated on the car of the lord of the celestials, appeared the effulgent persons of king, Vasumanas and Valakshas and Supratarddana, and Ashtaka and Sivi and Yayati and Nahusha and Gaya and Manu and Puru and Raghu and Bhanu and Krisaswa and Sagara and Nala.
Mbh.5.119.5342 Saying this, Viswamitra of great effulgence began to pass his time happily with her, And Madhavi bore him a son of the name of Ashtaka.
Mbh.5.119.5344 Ashtaka then went to a city, bright as the city of Soma.
Mbh.5.121.5383 Beholding meanwhile four mighty kings, viz, Pratardana, Vasumanas, Sivi, the son of Usinara, and Ashtaka, assembled together in the woods of Naimisha, the king fell amongst them.
Mbh.5.122.5431 And lastly, the royal sage Ashtaka, the offspring of Kusika's son and Madhavi, addressing Nahusha's son Yayati who had performed many hundreds of sacrifices, said, I have, O lord, performed hundreds of Pundarika, Gosava and Vajapeya sacrifices.
Mbh.12.165.9913 From Pratardana it was received by Ashtaka, and from Ashtaka by Prishadaswa.
Mbh.13.94.8551 There were also the Rishi Galava, and Ashtaka and Bharadwaja and Arundhati and the Valakhilyas; and Sivi and Dilipa and Nahusha and Amvarisha and the royal Yayati and Dhundhumara and Puru.

Mbh.13.162.13575 With well-cooked frumenty, Yavaka, Krisara, and Havi clarified butter, one should worship the Pitris and the deities in the Sraddha called Ashtaka.
