Mbh.1.55.2762 Thou inspirest terror by thy looks like Bhagiratha'
Mbh.1.187.9422 Vrihanta, Manimana, Dandadhara, Sahadeva, Jayatsena, Meghasandhi, Virata with his two sons Sankha and Uttara, Vardhakshemi, Susarma, Senavindu, Suketu with his two sons Sunama and Suvarcha, Suchitra, Sukumara, Vrika, Satyadhriti, Suryadhwaja, Rochamana, Nila, Chitrayudha, Agsuman, Chekitana, the mighty Sreniman, Chandrasena the mighty son of Samudrasena, Jarasandha, Vidanda, and Danda, the father and son, Paundraka, Vasudeva, Bhagadatta endued with great energy, Kalinga, Tamralipta, the king of Pattana, the mighty car-warrior Salya, the king of Madra, with his son, the heroic Rukmangada, Rukmaratha, Somadatta of the Kuru race with his three sons, all mighty chariot-fighters and heroes, viz, Bhuri, Bhurisrava, and Sala, Sudakshina, Kamvoja of the Puru race, Vrihadvala, Sushena, Sivi, the son of Usinara, Patcharanihanta, the king of Karusha, Sankarshana Valadeva, Vasudeva Krishna the mighty son of Rukmini, Samva, Charudeshna, the son of Pradyumna with Gada, Akrura, Satyaki, the high-souled Uddhava, Kritavarman, the son of Hridika, Prithu, Viprithu, Viduratha, Kanka, Sanku with Gaveshana, Asavaha, Aniruddha, Samika, Sarimejaya, the heroic Vatapi Jhilli Pindaraka, the powerful Usinara, all these of the Vrishni race, Bhagiratha, Vrihatkshatra, Jayadratha the son of Sindhu, Vrihadratha, Valhika, the mighty charioteer Srutayu, Uluka, Kaitava, Chitrangada and Suvangada, the highly intelligent Vatsaraja, the king of Kosala, Sisupala and the powerful Jarasandha, these and many other great kings, all Kshatriyas celebrated throughout the world, have come, O blessed one, for thee.
Mbh.2.3.79 There, on its banks, previously dwelt king Bhagiratha for many years, desiring to behold the goddess Ganga, since called Bhagirathee after that king's name.
Mbh.2.8.348 And Yayati, Nahusha, Puru, Mandhatri, Somaka, Nriga; the royal sage Trasadasyu, Kritavirya, Sautasravas; Arishtanemi, Siddha, Kritavega, Kriti, Nimi, Pratarddana, Sivi, Matsya, Prithulaksha, Vrihadratha, Vartta, Marutta, Kusika, Sankasya, Sankriti, Dhruva, Chaturaswa, Sadaswormi and king Kartavirya; Bharata and Suratha, Sunitha, Nisatha, Nala, Divodasa, and Sumanas, Amvarisha, Bhagiratha; Vyaswa, Vadhraswa, Prithuvega, Prithusravas, Prishadaswa, Vasumanas, Kshupa, and Sumahavala, Vrishadgu, and Vrishasena, Purukutsa, Dhwajin and Rathin; Arshtisena, Dwilipa, and the high-souled Ushinara; Ausinari, Pundarika, Saryati, Sarava, and Suchi; Anga, Rishta, Vena, Dushmanta, Srinjaya and Jaya; Bhangasuri, Sunitha, and Nishada, and Bahinara; Karandhama, Valhika, Sudymna, and the mighty Madhu; Aila and the mighty king of earth Maruta; Kapota, Trinaka, and Shadeva, and Arjuna also.
Mbh.2.15.680 It hath been heard by us that in the krita age, having brought every one under their subjection, Yauvanaswin by the abolition of all taxes, Bhagiratha by his kind treatment to his subjects, Kartavirya by the energy of his asceticism, the lord Bharata by his strength and valour, and Maruta by his prosperity, all these five became emperors.
Mbh.2.52.2194 And king Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, having completed the Rajasuya sacrifice, obtained like the exalted Harishchandra such prosperity that neither Rantideva nor Nabhaga, nor Jauvanaswa, nor Manu, nor king Prithu the son of Vena, nor Bhagiratha, Yayati, nor Nahusha, had obtained its like.
Mbh.3.25.1199 Kings Nabhaga and Bhagiratha and others, having subjugated by truth this world bounded by the seas, finally obtained, O child, all the region hereafter.
Mbh.3.85.4739 Like king Bhagiratha and the illustrious Rama, dost thou shine among kings even as the Sun himself.
Mbh.3.87.4789 Towards that direction also is the sacred Ganga, on whose banks Bhagiratha celebrated many sacrifices with profuse gifts to Brahmanas.
Mbh.3.87.4800 There, O Yudhishthira, the sacred Bhagiratha entereth a lake and there also, O king, is that sacred river known by the name of the merit-bestowing Brahmasara, whose banks are inhabited by persons whose sins have been washed away, and whose sight alone produceth merit.
Mbh.3.92.4945 For, O son of Pandu, thou art even as king Bhagiratha, or Gaya, or Yayati, or any one, O son of Kunti, that is like them'
Mbh.3.94.5017 And, O monarch, as king Nriga and Shivi and Ausinara and Bhagiratha and Vasumanas and Gaya and Puru and Pururavas, by practising ascetic penances and visiting tirthas and touching sacred waters and beholding illustrious ascetics, obtained fame and sanctity and merit and wealth, so wilt thou also obtain prosperity that is great.
Mbh.3.106.5424 It will take a long course of time for the ocean to resume its wonted state; the occasion will be furnished by the agnates of the great king Bhagiratha'
Mbh.3.106.5427 And how did the agnates of Bhagiratha furnish the same?
Mbh.3.106.5428 And how was the ocean refilled by the interference of Bhagiratha?
Mbh.3.107.5560 And a son was born to him, known by the name of Bhagiratha beauteous, and devoted to a virtuous life, and truthful, and free from feelings of malice.
Mbh.3.108.5596 Lomasa said, Ganga, the goddess saluted by the world, having heard these words of the king, was well pleased, and spake to Bhagiratha the following words: O great king!
Mbh.3.108.5605 Then the great king Bhagiratha having heard the same, went to the Kailasa hill, and betaking himself to a severe course of penances, at the expiration of a certain length of time obtained the favour of that worker of blessings Siva.
Mbh.3.109.5608 SECTION CIX Lomasa said, The blessed God having heard what Bhagiratha had said, and with a view to doing what was agreeable to the residents of heaven, replied to the king, saying, So let it be.
Mbh.3.109.5612 And standing there, he said to Bhagiratha, the most praiseworthy of men, O prince of a powerful arm!
Mbh.3.109.5624 Thus assuming very many different aspects, when she fell from the sky, and reached the surface of the earth, she said to Bhagiratha, O great king!
Mbh.3.109.5628 Having heard these words, king Bhagiratha directed his course towards the spot where lay those bodies of mighty Sagara's sons, in order that, O most praiseworthy of men, the holy water might flood the same.
Mbh.3.109.5630 And the protector of men Bhagiratha accompanied by Ganga reached the sea; and the sea, the abode of Varuna, was quickly filled.
Mbh.5.144.6475 And having formed that resolution, she went to the sacred stream called after Bhagiratha.
Mbh.5.181.8147 Let that goddess worshipped by Siddhas and Charanas, that blessed daughter of Bhagiratha, in the form of a river, who begat thy wicked self, weep today, O king, beholding thee slain by me and lying miserable on that plain, however undeserving she may be of seeing such a sight!
Mbh.6.6.375 There king Bhagiratha, beholding Ganga since called after his own name, resided for many years.
Mbh.7.58.2680 SECTION LX Narada said, Even king Bhagiratha, O Srinjaya, we hear, was dead.
Mbh.7.58.2686 King Bhagiratha gave enormous presents at his sacrifices.
Mbh.7.58.2693 Thus, O Srinjaya, did that goddess, viz, the ocean-going Ganga, select lord Bhagiratha, descendant of Ikshvaku, the performer of sacrifices with profuse gifts to the Brahmanas, as her father.
Mbh.7.58.2696 Possessed of great ascetic merit, Bhagiratha gave unto the Brahmanas whatever benefit they desired without obliging them to stir from the place wherever they might entertain those desires.
Mbh.7.58.2700 For that object on which the Rishis that subsisted on the rays of the sun used to wait upon the sun and the presiding deity of the sun, for that very object they used to wait upon the lord Bhagiratha, that ornament of the three worlds.
Mbh.7.91.4166 Let Yayati and Nahusha, and Dhundhumara, and Bhagiratha, and the other royal sages, all do what is beneficial to thee.
Mbh.8.5.127 The old king Bhagiratha, and Vrihatkshatra the ruler of the Kaikeyas both endued with great prowess and might and energy, have been slain.
Mbh.10.13.895 In the very sight of those illustrious and firm bowmen, Bhima, by means of his very fleet steeds, proceeded towards the bank of the river brought down by Bhagiratha.
Mbh.12.29.1437 We hear, O Srinjaya, that king Bhagiratha also died.
Mbh.12.29.1439 King Bhagiratha, in one of the sacrifices he performed, gave away a million of maidens adorned with ornaments of gold.
Mbh.12.29.1444 The triple-coursed Ganga had agreed to be the daughter of Bhagiratha of Ikshvaku's race, that monarch ever engaged in the performance of sacrifices with presents in profusion unto the Brahmanas
Mbh.13.17.1872 The matted locks on thy head had sucked up the river Ganga when it first fell from heaven although they again gave out the waters at the earnest solicitations of king Bhagiratha.
Mbh.13.26.3642 Having, with austere penances, gratified all the deities with the Supreme Lord Vishnu, Bhagiratha brought Ganga down on the Earth.
Mbh.13.76.6984 Listen to me, O king, as I recite to thee the names of those righteous monarchs that have attained to regions of great felicity as the reward of those gifts of kine which they made agreeable to the instructions of Vrihaspati, Usinara, Viswagaswa, Nriga, Bhagiratha, the celebrated Mandhatri the son of Yuvanaswa, king Muchukunda, Bhagiratha, Naishadha.
Mbh.13.103.9179 In this connection is recited the ancient narrative of the discourse between Bhagiratha and the illustrious Brahman the Grandsire of the Creation.
Mbh.13.103.9180 It has been heard by us, O Bharata, that Bhagiratha attained to that region which transcends that of the deities, of kine, and of the Rishis.
Mbh.13.103.9181 Beholding this, O monarch, the Grandsire Brahman, addressing Bhagiratha, said, How, O Bhagiratha, hast thou attained to this region that is so difficult of attainment?
Mbh.13.103.9182 Neither the deities, nor Gandharvas, nor human beings, O Bhagiratha succeed in coming here without having practised the severest austerities.
Mbh.13.103.9184 Bhagiratha said, I used to make gifts of hundreds of thousands of gold coin unto the Brahmanas, observing the Brahmacharya vow all the while, it is not through the merit on those gifts, O learned one, that I have attained to this region.
Mbh.13.103.9256 Bhishma continued, King Bhagiratha, who had said so and who deserved every honour was on the conclusion of his speech, honoured by Brahman according to the rites ordained for that purpose.
Mbh.13.137.11362 The royal sage Bhagiratha, by giving his famous daughter Hansi in marriage to Kautsa, went to the eternal regions.
Mbh.13.137.11363 King Bhagiratha by giving hundreds and thousands of kine with their young ones to Kohala attained to the most blessed regions.
Mbh.13.139.11413 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words of king Yudhishthira, Bhishma, the son of the river called after Bhagiratha, filled with joy in consequence of his affection for the monarch and his brothers, said what follows
Mbh.13.150.12643 One should also take the name of the royal sage Bhagiratha of great fame, who, through the grace of Mahadeva, succeeded in bringing down the sacred river from heaven for flowing over the earth and cleansing all human beings of their sins.
Mbh.13.150.12644 It was Bhagiratha who caused the ashes of the sixty thousand sons of Sagara to be overflowed with the sacred waters of Ganga and thereby rescued them from their sin.
Mbh.13.165.13710 Bhagiratha, Harischandra, Marutta, Dridharatha, the highly fortunate Alarka, Aila, Karandhama, that foremost of men, Kasmira, Daksha, Amvarisha, Kukura, Raivata of great fame, Kuru, Samvarana, Mandhatri of unbaffled prowess, the royal sage Muchukunda, Jahnu who was much favoured by Janhavi Ganga, the first in point of time of all kings, viz, Prithu the son of Vena, Mitrabhanu, Priyankara, Trasadasyu, Sweta that foremost of royal sages, the celebrated Mahabhisha, Nimi Ashtaka, Ayu, the royal sage Kshupa, Kaksheyu, Pratardana, Devodasa, Sudasa, Kosaleswara, Aila, Nala, the royal sage Manu, that lord of all creatures, Havidhara, Prishadhara, Pratipa, Santanu, Aja, the senior Varhi, Ikshwaku of great fame, Anaranya, Janujangha, the royal sage Kakshasena, and many others not named in history.
Mbh.18.3.164 There where the royal sage Mandhatri is, there where king Bhagiratha is, there where Dushmantas son Bharata is, there wilt thou sport in bliss.
