MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.27 Then appeared the man of inconceivable nature whom all the Rishis know and so the Viswe-devas, the Adityas, the Vasus, and the twin Aswins; the Yakshas, the Sadhyas, the Pisachas, the Guhyakas, and the Pitris.
Mbh.1.1.92 Their mothers, in order that the ordinances of the law might be fulfilled, admitted as substitutes to their embraces the gods Dharma, Vayu, Sakra, and the divinities the twin Aswins.
Mbh.1.3.690 And his preceptor thereupon told him, Glorify the twin Aswins, the joint physicians of the gods, and they will restore thee thy sight'
Mbh.1.3.691 And Upamanyu thus directed by his preceptor began to glorify the twin Aswins, in the following words of the Rig Veda: Ye have existed before the creation!
Mbh.1.3.711 Ye Aswins, ye are the creators of that calf!
Mbh.1.3.716 Ye Aswins, this wheel of time is set in motion by you!
Mbh.1.3.721 Subject as I am to its distressful influence, ye Aswins, liberate me from that wheel of Time.
Mbh.1.3.722 Ye Aswins, ye are this universe of five elements!
Mbh.1.3.731 Ye Aswins, I adore you!
Mbh.1.3.739 Ye Aswins, grant me my sight to protect my life
Mbh.1.3.740 The twin Aswins, thus invoked, appeared and said, We are satisfied.
Mbh.1.3.743 And Upamanyu thus addressed, replied, Your words, O Aswins, have never proved untrue.
Mbh.1.3.745 And the Aswins thereupon told him, Formerly, thy preceptor had invoked us.
Mbh.1.3.748 Thus addressed, Upamanyu again said unto them, O Aswins, I crave your pardon.
Mbh.1.3.750 The Aswins then said, O, we are pleased with this devotion of thine to thy preceptor.
Mbh.1.3.754 Thus spoken to by the Aswins he recovered his sight, and having gone to his preceptor's presence he saluted him and told him all.
Mbh.1.3.755 And his preceptor was well-pleased with him and said unto him, Thou shalt obtain prosperity even as the Aswins have said.
Mbh.1.32.1869 Overcome by the lord of birds, the Sadhyas with the Gandharvas fled eastwards, the Vasus with the Rudras towards the south, the Adityas towards the west, and the twin Aswins towards the north.
Mbh.1.63.3178 And Yudhishthira was born of the seed of Dharma Yama, the god of justice; and Bhima of the wolf's stomach was born of Marut the god of wind, and Dhananjaya, blessed with good fortune and the first of all wielders of weapons, was born of Indra; and Nakula and Sahadeva, of handsome features and ever engaged in the service of their superiors, were born of the twin Aswins.
Mbh.1.66.3363 And she gave birth, in the skies, to two greatly fortunate twins, the Aswins.
Mbh.1.66.3370 The twin Aswins, all annual plants, and all inferior animals, are reckoned among the Guhyakas.
Mbh.1.67.3524 And, O monarch, learn that king Yudhishthira was a portion of Dharma; that Bhimasena was of the deity of wind; that Arjuna was of Indra, the chief of the celestials; and that Nakula and Sahadeva, the handsomest beings among all creatures, and unrivalled for beauty on earth, were similarly portions of the twin Aswins.
Mbh.1.76.4270 Thou art indeed, O daughter, in consequence of my prowess, worshipped thrice a day during the ordained hours of prayer, by Brahmanas, the gods with Indra, the Vasus, the Aswins, the Asuras, in fact, by the whole universe.
Mbh.1.95.5321 And on Madri were raised by the twin Aswins, the twins Nakula and Sahadeva.
Mbh.1.102.5778 And Vichitravirya also, endued with the prowess of the celestials and the beauty of the twin Aswins, could steal the heart of any beautiful woman.
Mbh.1.123.6660 And the twin Aswins, the eight Vasus, the mighty Maruts, the Viswedevas, and the Sadhyas, also came there.
Mbh.1.124.6689 Madri thought of the twin Aswins, who coming unto her with speed begat upon her two sons that were twins named Nakula and Sahadeva, unrivalled on earth for personal beauty.
Mbh.1.124.6690 And as soon as they were born, an incorporeal voice said, In energy and beauty these twins shall transcend even the twin Aswins themselves'
Mbh.1.126.6777 Look here again at these tigers among men, mighty in the use of the bow, the twin children begotten upon Madri by the twin Aswins.
Mbh.1.153.8039 Oh the twins, who in beauty are like the twin Aswins amongst the celestials, are asleep like ordinary mortals on the bare ground!
Mbh.1.172.8826 O tiger in Kuru's race, O son of Pritha, I also know Dharma, Vayu, Sakra, the twin Aswins, and Pandu, these six perpetuators of Kuru race, these excellent celestials and human progenitors of you all.
Mbh.1.188.9430 And there came also the celestials on their cars, with the Rudras and the Adityas, the Vasus and the twin Aswins, the Swadhas and all the Marutas, and Kuvera with Yama walking ahead.
Mbh.1.190.9514 The two other youths, like unto Kartikeya, are, I suspect, the sons of the twin Aswins.
Mbh.1.198.9814 Then Soma and Sakra and Varuna and Kuvera, the Sadhyas, the Rudras, the Vasus, the twin Aswins, these and other celestials went unto Prajapati, the Creator of the universe.
Mbh.1.198.9862 But let the gods Dharma, Vayu, Maghavat, and the twin Aswins beget us upon our would-be mother.
Mbh.1.223.10915 Unto Vasudeva and Dhananjaya happily sitting there like the Aswins in heaven, a certain Brahmana came.
Mbh.1.228.11164 The Aswins stood there with resplendent plants in their hands.
Mbh.1.230.11284 Thou art the twin Aswins; thou art Surya; thou art Soma; thou art Vayu.
Mbh.3.2.171 It is by virtue of their wealth of yoga that the Rudras, and the Sadhyas, and the Adityas and the Vasus, and the twin Aswins, rule the creatures.
Mbh.3.43.2304 There he met with the Sadhyas, the Viswas, the Marutas, the twin Aswins, the Adityas, the Vasus, the Rudras, the Brahmarshis of the great splendour, and numerous royal sages with Dilipa at their head, and Tumvura and Narada, and that couple of Gandharvas known by the names of Haha and Huhu.
Mbh.3.46.2377 Unto that assembly came, O best of men, the Rudras and the Adityas and the Aswins and the Vasus.
Mbh.3.51.2544 Possessed of the prowess of lions and unbearable as the Aswins themselves, when they will come to the field of battle with Bhima and Arjuna in front, I see, O Sanjaya, that my soldiers will all be slain without a remnant.
Mbh.3.53.2697 He is equal unto the Aswins in beauty, not having his peer among men.
Mbh.3.62.3016 O blessed one, may the Adityas and the Vasus, and the twin Aswins together with the Marutas protect thee, thy virtue being thy best guard'
Mbh.3.83.4129 Proceeding then to the tirtha of the twin Aswins one obtaineth personal beauty.
Mbh.3.85.4718 Desirous of obtaining merit, the Vasus, and the Sadhyas, the Adityas, the Maruts, the Aswins, and the Rishis equal unto celestials, all bathed in these tirthas.
Mbh.3.90.4896 These all are visited by the Vasus, the Sadhyas, the Adityas, the Marutas, the Aswins and the illustrious Rishis resembling the celestials themselves.
Mbh.3.123.6260 SECTION CXXIII Lomasa said, Once on a time, O king, those celestials, namely the twin Aswins, happened to behold Sukanya, when she had just bathed, and when her person was bare.
Mbh.3.123.6261 And seeing that one of excellent limbs, and like unto the daughter of the lord of celestials, the nose-born Aswins neared her, and addressed her, saying, O thou of shapely thighs, whose daughter art thou?
Mbh.3.123.6266 Thereat the Aswins again spake unto her, smiling.
Mbh.3.123.6289 The twin Aswins also, O king, sank into the sheet of water.
Mbh.3.124.6307 Chyavana took up a quantity of the Soma juice, in order that he might offer the same to the Aswins, who were physicians to the celestials.
Mbh.3.124.6308 And while the saint was taking up the intended offering for those celestial twins, Indra pronounced his interdiction, saying, These Aswins both of them in my opinion have no right to receive an offering of the Soma juice'
Mbh.3.124.6314 be it known to thee that the Aswins also rank as gods'
Mbh.3.124.6319 And as he was about to take up an excellent portion of the Soma juice with the object of offering it to the two Aswins, the destroyer of the demon Vala Indra observed his act, and thus spoke unto him, If thou take up the Soma with a view to offering it to those celestials, I shall hurl at thee my thunderbolt of awful form, which is superior to all the weapons that exist'
Mbh.3.124.6320 Thus addressed by Indra, the son of Bhrigu, cast at Indra a smiling glance, and took up in due form a goodly quantity of the Soma juice, to make an offering to the Aswins.
Mbh.3.125.6340 verily I tell thee as truth itself, that from this day forward the two Aswins will be entitled to the Soma juice.
Mbh.3.125.6346 These two Aswins will have a right to drink the Soma juice, since thou hast made them entitled to the same.
Mbh.3.125.6353 Having thus cast down the demon Mada and gratified Indra with a Soma draught and assisted king Saryati in worshipping all the gods together with the two Aswins and also spread his fame for power over all the worlds, the best of those endued with speech passed his days happily in the wood, in the company of Sukanya, his loving wife.
Mbh.3.139.7081 May king Varuna and Yama, conqueror of battles, and Ganga, and Yamuna, and this mountain, and the Maruts and the twin Aswins, and all rivers and lakes, vouchsafe thy safety.
Mbh.3.141.7176 And the Sadhyas and the Aswins attend on him.
Mbh.3.161.8189 And, O son, Yudhishthira, even as by reason of your being the progeny of spiritual intercourse, Jishnu is entitled to the protection of Mahendra, and Vrikodara, of the Wind-god, and thou, of Dharma, and the twins possessed of strength, of the Aswins, so ye all are entitled to my protection.
Mbh.3.167.8443 Then I saw the Vasus, and the Rudras, and the Sadhyas with the Marutas, and the Adityas, and the two Aswins and worshipped them.
Mbh.3.187.9416 O tiger among men, having entered his stomach, as I wandered around, I also beheld the whole tribe of the gods with their chief Sakra, the Sadhyas, the Rudras, the Adityas, the Guhyakas, the Pitris, the Snakes and the Nagas, the feathery tribes, the Vasus, the Aswins, the Gandharvas, the Apsaras, the Yakshas, the Rishis, the hordes of the Daityas and the Danavas, and the Nagas also.
Mbh.3.292.14280 And in beauty of person he is like either of the twin Aswins.
Mbh.5.48.2672 Just these are the words spoken by Arjuna, the wielder of Gandiva, eager for the fight and with eyes red as the lotus, If Dhritarashtra's son doth not surrender to king Yudhishthira of the Ajamida race, his kingdom, then it is evident there must be some sinful act committed by the sons of Dhritarashtra, whose consequences are yet unreaped by them, for it can be nothing else when they desire battle with Bhimasena and Arjuna, and the Aswins and Vasudeva and Sini's son, and Dhrishtadyumna infallible in arms, and Sikhandin, and Yudhishthira, who is like Indra himself and who can consume heaven and earth by merely wishing them ill.
Mbh.5.61.3292 Indeed, if Agni, or Vayu, or Dharma, or Indra, or the Aswins had ever engaged themselves in works from worldly desire, then the sons of Pritha could never have fallen into distress.
Mbh.5.61.3305 The Aswins, Vayu, Agni, Indra with the Maruts, and Dharma will not venture to protect my foes.
Mbh.5.105.4890 Vishnu himself, and Vayu and Dharma, and the Aswins, these gods are thy enemies.
Mbh.5.131.5825 And on his arms appeared the regents of the world, and from his mouth issued Agni, the Adityas, the Sadhyas, the Vasus, the Aswins, the Marutas, with Indra, and the Viswedevas.
Mbh.5.138.6200 Then let those tigers among men, the twin Aswins, unrivalled on earth for beauty, wait on thee with affection and reverence as on their preceptor.
Mbh.6.35.1637 Behold the Adityas, the Vasus, the Rudras, the Aswins, and the Maruts.
Mbh.6.35.1660 The Rudras, the Adityas, the Vasus, they that called the Siddhas, the Viswas, the Aswins, the Maruts, also the Ushmapas, the Gandharvas, the Yakshas, the Asuras, the hosts of Siddhyas, behold Thee and are all amazed.
Mbh.6.59.3183 And slaying in battle those two foremost of car-warriors, viz, Bhishma along with his followers and Drona also, O grandson of Sini, I will gladden Dhananjaya, and the king, and Bhima, and the twin Aswins.
Mbh.6.65.3603 The twins Aswins constitute thy ears, and the goddess Saraswati is thy tongue.
Mbh.7.23.1171 The standards of the five sons of Draupadi bore on them the excellent images of Dharma, Marut, Sakra, and the twin Aswins.
Mbh.7.32.1690 In knowledge of scriptures, gravity, sweetness of temper, righteousness and prowess, the heroic Sahadeva is equal to the Aswins themselves.
Mbh.7.38.1932 Seeing that implacable and proud foe of theirs thus vanquished, those mighty car-warriors, viz, the five sons of Draupadi, who had on their banners the images of Yama and Maruta and Sakra and the twin Aswins, and Satyaki, and Chekitana, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Sikhandin, and the Kekayas, and Dhrishtaketu, and the Matsyas, Panchalas, and the Srinjayas, and the Pandavas headed by Yudhishthira, were filled with joy.
Mbh.7.60.2715 Those celestials, viz, the twin Aswins, brought him out of his father's womb by a surgical operations.
Mbh.7.60.2719 Beholding that Yuvanaswa was quick with child, those best of physicians, viz, the twin Aswins among the celestials, extracted the child from the king's womb.
Mbh.7.74.3231 If the Siddhas, the Rudras, the Vasus, with the Aswins, the Maruts with Indra: at their head the Viswadevas with other gods, the Pitris, the Gandharvas, Garuda, the Ocean, the mountains, the firmament, Heaven, Earth, the point of the compass cardinal and subsidiary, and the regents of those points, all the creatures that are domestic and all that are wild, in fact if all the mobile and the immobile beings together, become the protectors of the ruler of the Sindhus, yet, O slayer of Madhu, shalt thou behold Jayadratha slain by me tomorrow in battle with my arrows!
Mbh.7.82.3622 and Janardana mounted on that car, like the twin Aswins riding the same car with Indra while coming to the sacrifice of Saryati.
Mbh.7.199.11464 He is Indra, he is the Wind, he is the twin Aswins, and he is the lighting.
Mbh.12.63.3496 Those deities, viz, the Sadhyas, the Vasus, the Aswins, the Rudras, the Viswas, the Maruts, and the Siddhas, created in days of old by the first of gods, are all observant of Kshatriya duties.
Mbh.12.165.9828 That religion was accepted by the gods, with their preceptors, priests, the Adityas, the Vasus, the Rudras, the Sadhyas, the Maruts, the Aswins, Bhrigu, Atri, Angiras, the Siddhas, Kasyapa rich in penances, Vasishtha, Gautama, Agastya, Narada, Parvata, the Valikhilya Rishis, those other Rishis known under the names of Prabhasas, the Sikatas, the Ghritapas, the Somavayavyas, the Vaiswanaras, Marichipas, the Akrishtas, the Hansas, those born of Fire, the Vanaprasthas, and the Prasnis.
Mbh.12.166.9980 Vaisampayana continued, The twin sons of the Aswins, after having said these words, remained silent.
Mbh.12.197.11777 Those regions that are owned by the high-souled gods, that are of diverse aspects and colours, of diverse descriptions and productive of diverse fruits, and that are of great excellence, those ears again that: move at the will of the riders, those beautiful mansions and hells, those various pleasure-gardens embellished with golden lotuses, those regions that belong to the four Regents and Sukra and Vrihaspati and the Maruts and Viswedevas and Sadhyas and the Aswins, and the Rudras and the Adityas and the Vasus, and other denizens of heaven, are, O sire, spoken of as hells, when compared with the region of the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.207.12570 Nasatya and Dasra are mentioned as the two Aswins.
