Mbh.1.1.39 From these are descended the family of the Kurus, of the Yadus, and of Bharata; the family of Yayati and of Ikshwaku; also of all the Rajarshis.
Mbh.1.1.44 Some read the Bharata beginning with the initial mantra invocation, others with the story of Astika, others with Uparichara, while some Brahmanas study the whole.
Mbh.1.1.64 be thou the writer of the Bharata which I have formed in my imagination, and which I am about to repeat
Mbh.1.1.73 As the sun dispelleth the darkness, so doth the Bharata by its discourses on religion, profit, pleasure and final release, dispel the ignorance of men.
Mbh.1.1.77 The tree of the Bharata, inexhaustible to mankind as the clouds, shall be as a source of livelihood to all distinguished poets
Mbh.1.1.80 It was not till after these were born, grown up, and departed on the supreme journey, that the great Rishi Vyasa published the Bharata in this region of mankind; when being solicited by Janamejaya and thousands of Brahmanas, he instructed his disciple Vaisampayana, who was seated near him; and he, sitting together with the Sadasyas, recited the Bharata, during the intervals of the ceremonies of the sacrifice, being repeatedly urged to proceed.
Mbh.1.1.83 Vyasa executed the compilation of the Bharata, exclusive of the episodes originally in twenty-four thousand verses; and so much only is called by the learned as the Bharata.

Mbh.1.1.244 He that readeth this holy chapter of the moon, readeth the whole of the Bharata, I ween.
Mbh.1.1.246 In former days, having placed the four Vedas on one side and the Bharata on the other, these were weighed in the balance by the celestials assembled for that purpose.

Mbh.1.2.284 O Saunaka, this best of narrations called Bharata which has begun to be repeated at thy sacrifice, was formerly repeated at the sacrifice of Janamejaya by an intelligent disciple of Vyasa.

Mbh.1.65.3255 And, O bull in the Bharata race, the Danavas, Rakshasas and Gandharvas and Snakes, could not slay the incarnate celestials even in their infancy, so strong they were'
