MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.21.1465 Its bottom, lower than the nether regions, the vow observing regenerate Rishi Atri could not fathom after toiling for a hundred years.
Mbh.1.65.3259 It is known that Brahman hath six spiritual sons, viz, Marichi, Atri, Angiras, Pulastya, Pulaha and Kratu.
Mbh.1.65.3292 And they were Tashtadhara and Atri, and two others of fierce deeds.
Mbh.1.66.3313 Atri, Pulastya, Pulaha, and Kratu, these six great Rishis of great energy, are the sons of Brahman.
Mbh.1.66.3315 And, O king, it is said that the sons of Atri are numerous.
Mbh.1.67.3507 And, O king, thou shouldst know that he who was known on earth as Vidura, who was the first of all virtuous men, who was the god of Justice himself, was the excellent and greatly fortunate son of the Rishi Atri.
Mbh.1.123.6648 The sons of Kadru Nagas, the son of Vinata, the Gandharvas, the lords of the creation, and the seven great Rishis, viz, Bharadwaja, Kasyapa, Gautama, Viswamitra, Jamadagni, Vasishtha, and the illustrious Atri who illumined the world of old when the Sun was lost, all came there.
Mbh.1.182.9276 Then the great Rishi Atri of liberal soul desirous of ending that sacrifice, an achievement highly difficult for others, came to that place.
Mbh.2.11.435 And Daksha, Prachetas, Pulaha, Marichi, the master Kasyapa, Bhrigu, Atri, and Vasistha and Gautama, and also Angiras, and Pulastya, Kraut, Prahlada, and Kardama, these Prajapatis, and Angirasa of the Atharvan Veda, the Valikhilyas, the Marichipas; Intelligence, Space, Knowledge, Air, Heat, Water, Earth, Sound, Touch, Form, Taste, Scent; Nature, and the Modes of Nature, and the elemental and prime causes of the world, all stay in that mansion beside the lord Brahma.
Mbh.3.26.1218 The descendants of Bhrigu and Angiras, along with those of Vasishta and Kasyapa, the illustrious sons of Agastya, the offspring of Atri all of excellent vows, in fact, all the foremost Brahmanas of the whole, are now united with thee!
Mbh.3.64.3143 And the charming asylum she beheld was inhabited and adorned by ascetics like Vasishtha and Bhrigu and Atri, self-denying and strict in diet, with minds under control, endued with holiness, some living on water, some on air, and some on fallen leaves, with passions in check, eminently blessed, seeking the way to heaven, clad in barks of trees and deer-skins, and with senses subdued.
Mbh.3.184.9157 It is said that a royal sage of the name of Vainya was once engaged in performing the horse-sacrifice and that Atri desired to go to him for alms.
Mbh.3.184.9158 But Atri subsequently gave up his desire of wealth, from religious scruples.
Mbh.3.184.9165 Atri replied, I am informed, O virtuous one, by the high-souled Gautama, that Vainya is a pious prince, devoted to the cause of truth; but there are Brahmanas about his persons who are jealous of me; and as Gautama hath told me this, I do not venture to go there, for while there, if I were to advise what is good and calculated to secure piety and the fulfilment of one's desires, they would contradict me with words unproductive of any good.
Mbh.3.184.9170 To him the Rishi Gautama, of great ascetic merit, then indignantly replied saying, Atri, do not repeat this nonsense.
Mbh.3.184.9173 Then, O, great prince, Atri said to Gautama, As Indra, the lord of all creatures, ruleth over our destinies, so doth this king!
Mbh.3.184.9183 Atri hath said that Vainya is the ruler of our destinies; great is our doubt on this point'
Mbh.3.184.9194 Markandeya continued, Then that illustrious prince, highly pleased with the victorious party, joyfully said to Atri, who had praised him erewhile.
Mbh.3.184.9198 Then Atri, of high austere virtues and great spiritual powers, thus welcomed by the king, accepted all the gifts without any breach of propriety, and returned home.
Mbh.3.221.11231 All this race of fires, first-born of the spirit of Brahma, sprang also from the race of Atri.
Mbh.3.221.11232 Atri in his own mind conceived these sons, desirous of extending the creation.
Mbh.5.36.1796 SECTION XXXVI Vidura said, In this connection is cited the old story of the discourse between the son of Atri and the deities called Sadhyas is as heard by us.
Mbh.5.36.1797 In days of old, the deities known by the name of Sadhyas questioned the highly wise and great Rishi of rigid vows the son of Atri, while the latter was wandering in the guise of one depending on eleemosynary charity for livelihood.
Mbh.7.141.7124 Atri had for son Soma.
Mbh.7.188.10373 Beholding Drona stationed on the field for the extermination of the Kshatriya race, the Rishis Viswamitra, and Jamadagni, and Bharadwaja, and Gautama, and Vasishtha, and Kasyapa, and Atri, and the Srikatas, the Prisnis, Garga, the Valkhilyas, the Marichis, the descendants of Bhrigu and Angiras, and diverse other sages of subtle forms quickly came thither, with the Bearer of sacrificial libations at their head, and, desirous of taking Drona unto the region of Brahman, addressed Drona, that ornament of battle, and said, Thou art fighting unrighteously.
Mbh.9.41.3014 The high-souled Atri, that foremost of Brahmanas, gifted with great intelligence became the Hotri in that grand sacrifice.
Mbh.9.43.3095 The diverse gods, Indra and Vishnu, both of great energy, and Surya and Candramas, and Dhatri, and Vidhatri, and Vayu, and Agni, and Pushan, and Bhaga, and Aryaman, and Ansa, and Vivaswat, and Rudra of great intelligence, and Mitra, and the eleven Rudras, the eight Vasus, the twelve Adityas, the twin Ashvinis, the Viswedevas, the Maruts, the Saddhyas, the Pitris, the Gandharvas, the Apsaras, the Yakshas, the Rakshasas, the Pannagas, innumerable celestial Rishis, the Vaikhanasas, the Valakhilyas, those others among Rishis that subsist only on air and those that subsist on the rays of the Sun, the descendants of Bhrigu and Angiras, many high-souled Yatis, all the Vidyadharas, all those that were crowned with ascetic success, the Grandsire, Pulastya, Pulaha of great ascetic merits, Angiras, Kasyapa, Atri, Marichi, Bhrigu, Kratu, Hara, Prachetas, Manu, Daksha, the Seasons, the Planets, and all the luminaries; O monarch, all the rivers in their embodied forms, the eternal Vedas, the Seas, the diverse tirthas, the Earth, the Sky, the Cardinal and Subsidiary points of the compass, and all the Trees, O king, Aditi the mother of the gods, Hri, Sri, Swaha, Sarasvati, Uma, Sachi, Sinivali, Anumati, Kuhu, the Day of the new moon, the Day of the full Moon, the wives of the denizens of heaven, Himavat, Vindhya, Meru of many summits, Airavat with all his followers, the Divisions of time called Kala, Kashtha, Fortnight, the Seasons, Night, and Day, O king, the prince of steeds, Ucchaisravas, Vasuki the king of the Snakes, Aruna, Garuda, the Trees, the deciduous herbs, and the adorable god Dharma, all came there together.
Mbh.12.165.9822 They are the sages Marichi, Atri, Pulastya, Pulaha, Kratu, Vasishtha, Angiras, and the mighty and puissant lord Rudra, and Prachetas.
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.12.206.12484 They were Marichi, Atri, Angiras, Pulastya, Pulaha, Kratu, and the already mentioned Daksha.
Mbh.12.207.12549 They were Marichi, Atri, Angiras, Pulastya, Pulaha, Kratu, and the highly-blessed Vasishtha who was equal to the Self-born himself.
Mbh.12.207.12559 Atri had another son born of his lions, viz, the handsome and princely Soma of great energy.
Mbh.12.209.12697 The science of music was acquired by Narada; that of arms by Bharadwaja; the history of the celestial Rishis by Gargya: that of medicine by the dark-complexioned son of Atri.
Mbh.12.213.12934 The great and divine Rishi Atri is well-conversant with the subject of the generation of the vital seed.

Mbh.12.335.21478 The seven celebrated Rishis, viz, Marichi, Atri, Angiras, Pulastya, Pulaha, Kratu, and Vasishta of great energy, who came to be known by the name of Chitra-sikhandins, uniting together on the breast of that foremost of mountains, viz, Meru, promulgated an excellent treatise on duties and observances that was consistent with the four Vedas.
Mbh.12.340.22060 Marichi, Angiras, Atri, Pulastya, Pulaha, Kratu, the high-souled Vasishtha, and the Self-born Mann, these should be known as the eight Prakritis.
Mbh.12.340.22119 Marichi, Angiras, Atri, Pulastya, Pulaha, Kratu, and Vasishtha, these seven Rishis have been created by a fiat of the will.
Mbh.12.353.23580 Born in the race of Atri, he was endued with amiability.
Mbh.13.14.995 The wife of Atri, who was conversant with the Vedas, abandoned her husband in a huff and said, I shall no longer live in subjection to that ascetic,

Mbh.13.26.3509 Amongst them were Atri and Vasishtha and Bhrigu and Pulastya and Pulaha and Kratu.
Mbh.13.65.6226 SECTION LXV Bhishma said, The illustrious Atri, the son of the Grandsire Brahman, said, They who make gifts of gold are said to make gifts of everything in the world'
Mbh.13.66.6288 Then there came to that place Agastya and Kanwa and Bhrigu and Atri and Vrishakapi, and Asita and Devala.
Mbh.13.85.7793 From the same blades of Kula grass, O thou of great puissance, sprang Atri.
Mbh.13.91.8140 From the Self-born Brahman sprang Atri, O thou of Kuru's race.
Mbh.13.91.8162 As soon as he was thought of, Atri endued with wealth of penances came there.
Mbh.13.91.8163 Beholding him exceedingly afflicted with grief on account of the death of his son, the immortal Atri comforted him with agreeable counsels.
Mbh.13.91.8196 These all should be excluded by persons possessed of wisdom from the place where a Sraddha is being performed' Having said these words in days of old unto the Rishi Nimi of his own race, the illustrious Atri possessed of wealth of penances then went back to the Grandsire's assembly in Heaven
Mbh.13.93.8278 Kasyapa and Atri and Vasishtha and Bharadwaja and Gautama and Viswamitra and Jamadagni, and the chaste Arundhati the wife of Vasishtha, all had a common maidservant whose name was Ganda.
Mbh.13.93.8315 Atri took up some of those figs, and finding them heavy refused to take them.
Mbh.13.93.8359 Indeed, O king, those great Rishis, with Atri among them, roved within the forest, subsisting upon fruits and roots.
Mbh.13.93.8365 Atri said, This man does not, like us, feel the pangs of hunger.
Mbh.13.93.8410 Bhishma continued, Ascertaining that her name was, Yatudhani and that she stood there for slaying them after knowing, from the meanings their names, what the extent was of their power, Atri, who was famishing with hunger, addressed her, and said these words
Mbh.13.93.8411 Atri said, I am called Atri because I cleanse the world from sin.
Mbh.13.93.8414 For these reasons also I am called Atri, O beautiful lady
Mbh.13.93.8475 Atri said, Let him who has stolen the lotus-stalk touch kine with his foot, make water facing the sun, and study the Vedas on excluded days
Mbh.13.150.12618 Atri, the illustrious Vasishtha, the great Rishi Kasyapa, Gotama, Bharadwaja, Viswamitra, the son of Kusika, and Richika's fierce son Jamadagni of great energy, these seven are the Ritwiks of the Lord of treasures and dwell in the northern quarter.
Mbh.13.150.12695 The sages of olden times, viz, Kasyapa, Gotama, and others, and Bhrigu Angiras and Atri and others, and Sukra, Agastya, and Vrihaspati, and others, all of whom are regenerate Rishis, have adored these Mantras.
Mbh.13.154.12882 After a while, Soma's father Atri, inviting Utathya to his house, bestowed upon him the famous maiden.
Mbh.13.156.12973 The god of wind once more addressed him, saying, Hear me, O foremost one of the Haihayas, as I narrate to thee the achievement of the high-souled Atri.
Mbh.13.156.12977 They then beheld the learned Brahmana Atri, endued with wealth of penances, engaged in the observance of austerities.
Mbh.13.156.12985 Thus solicited by them, Atri assumed the form of the darkness-destroying Soma.
Mbh.13.156.12987 Beholding that the real Soma and the real Surya had become darkened by the shafts of the foe, Atri, assuming the forms of those luminaries, began to shine forth in splendour over the field of battle, aided by the puissance of his penances.
Mbh.13.156.12988 Verily Atri made the universe blaze forth in light, dispelling all its darkness.
Mbh.13.156.12990 Beholding those great Asuras burnt by Atri, the gods also, protected by Atri's energy, began to despatch them quickly.
Mbh.13.156.12991 Putting forth his prowess and mastering all his energy, it was even in this way that Atri illumined the god of day, rescued the deities, and slew the Asuras!
Mbh.13.156.12994 I have thus narrated to thee, in detail, the feat of the high-souled Atri.
Mbh.13.165.13703 They are Ushango with his uterine brothers, Parivyadha of great energy, Dirghatamas, Gautama, Kasyapa, Ekata, Dwita, Trita, the righteous-souled son of Atri viz, Durvasa, and puissant Saraswat.
Mbh.13.165.13705 They are Atri, Vasishtha, Saktri, Parasara's son Vyasa of great energy; Viswamitra, Bharadwaja, Jamadagni, the son of Richika, Rama, Auddalaka, Swetaketu, Kohala, Vipula, Devala, Devasarman, Dhaumya, Hastikasyapa, Lomasa, Nachiketa, Lomaharsana, Ugrasravas, and Bhrigu's son Chyavana.
Mbh.14.35.1389 In days of old, the Rishis Vrihaspati and Bharadwaja, and Gautama and Bhargava, and Vasishtha and Kasyapa, and Viswamitra, and Atri, assembled together for the purpose of asking one another.
