Mbh.3.313.15582 When Bhimasena had said this, the Brahmanas uttered benedictions on the Bharatas, and then obtaining their permission, went to their respective quarters.
Mbh.4.19.791 O foremost of the Bharatas, beholding that beloved brother of thine, that bull among men, employed by Matsya in looking after his kine, I am filled with woe.
Mbh.4.28.1173 SECTION XXVIII Vaisampayana said, Then that grandsire of the Bharatas, Bhishma the son of Sutanu, conversant with the Vedas, acquainted with the proprieties of time and place, and possessing a knowledge of every duty of morality, after the conclusion of Drona's speech, applauded the words of the preceptor and spake unto the Bharatas for their benefit these words consistent with virtue, expressive of his attachment to the virtuous Yudhishthira, rarely spoken by men that are dishonest, and always meeting with the approbation of the honest.
Mbh.4.31.1281 And, O bull among the Bharatas, that force of Virata, O king, as it marched forth marking the footprints of the cattle looked exceedingly beautiful.
Mbh.4.38.1517 I do not venture to penetrate into the army of the Bharatas consisting of terrible bowmen and abounding in horses and elephants and cars and footsoldiers and banners.
Mbh.4.54.2078 And the warriors of the Bharatas headed by Bhishma, with their horses, elephants, and cars, pierced by Kiritin and rendered invisible by means of his shafts, their ranks also scattered and broken, began to wail aloud in grief.
Mbh.4.58.2227 And seeing on the field of battle those car-warriors, the preceptor Drona and his disciple Partha, both endued with prowess, both invincible, both well-trained, both possessed of great energy and great strength, engaged with each other, that mighty host of the Bharatas began to tremble frequently.
Mbh.4.63.2445 SECTION LXIII Vaisampayana said, Then while a great havoc was being made among the Kurus, Santanu's son, Bhishma, and grandsire of the Bharatas rushed at Arjuna, taking up an excellent bow adorned with gold, and many arrows also of keen points and capable of piercing into the very vitals of the foe and afflicting him sorely.
Mbh.4.71.2793 And alliance of this kind between the Matsya and the Bharatas is, indeed, desirable
Mbh.5.7.201 And, O bull of the Bharatas, born as thou art in Bharata's race that is honoured by all the kings, go and fight in accordance with the rules of propriety'
Mbh.5.30.1341 Thou shouldst, O Sanjaya, also salute the wise chief of the Vahlikas, who always cherishes no other wish save that there should be peace among the Bharatas.
Mbh.5.30.1381 O foremost of heroes anwng the Bharatas, either give me lack my own Indraprastha or fight with me
Mbh.5.31.1393 Thou shouldst again, O Sanjaya, bending thy head, in my name salute the grandsire of the Bharatas, Bhishma, the son of Santanu.
Mbh.5.32.1454 This unrighteous deed is loudly bruited about in the world, Therefore, O foremost of the Bharatas, this deed is unworthy of thee.
Mbh.5.32.1475 Thee I blame, since these dissensions of the Bharatas whose root thou art will surely bring about the destruction of innumerable lives.
Mbh.5.47.2657 And Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Salya, and Kritavarman and Jayadratha, and Aswatthaman and Vikarna, and Somadatta and Vahlika and Vidura of great wisdom and Yuyutsu, the great car-warrior, all these heroic kings in a body, O bull among the Bharatas, having Dhritarashtra at their head, entered that hall of great beauty.
Mbh.5.49.2838 Having heard these words of Bhishma, the high-souled son of Bharadwaja, having paid due homage unto Dhritarashtra and the assembled kings, spoke unto him these words, Do that, O king, which the best of the Bharatas, Bhishma, hath said.
Mbh.5.55.3078 And after I have slain him, numerous car-warriors of equal or superior energy, will, O bull among the Bharatas, speedily throw Arjuna down.
Mbh.5.57.3187 Sanjaya said, O Bharata, Dhrishtadyumna is always urging the Pandavas to war, saying, Fight ye, best among the Bharatas.
Mbh.5.71.3528 SECTION LXXI Dhritarashtra said, O Sanjaya, I envy those gifted with sight, who will behold before them that Vasudeva whose body endued with great beauty shineth with effulgence, illuminating the cardinal and subsidiary points of the compass; who will give utterance to words that will be listened to with respect by the Bharatas, words that are auspicious to the Srinjayas, acceptable, by those desirous of prosperity, faultless in every respect, and unacceptable by those that are doomed to death; who is full of high resolves, eternal, possessed of unrivalled heroism, who is the bull of the Yadavas and their leader, and who is the slayer and awe-inspirer of all foes, and who is the destroyer of the fame of every enemy?
Mbh.5.72.3552 Avishthala, Vrikasthala, Makandi, Varanavata, with any other, O Govinda, as the fifth, Grant us, we said, five villages or towns, O sire, where we five may dwell in union, for we do not desire the destruction of the Bharatas,
Mbh.5.74.3728 Alas, by Duryodhana's wrath, O slayer of Madhu, the Bharatas will all be consumed, even like forests by fire at the end of the dewy seasons, and, O slayer of Madhu, well-known are those eighteen kings that annihilated their kinsmen, friends, and relatives.
Mbh.5.74.3734 All of us, O Krishna, would rather in humiliation follow Duryodhana submissively, but, oh, let not the Bharatas be annihilated.
Mbh.5.84.4045 Always cheerful and of good hearts, well-protected by the Bharatas and therefore free from all anxieties on account of the designs of invaders, and unacquainted with calamities of any kind, many of the citizens of Upaplavya, coming out of their town, stood together on the way, desirous of beholding Krishna.
Mbh.5.89.4157 SECTION LXXXIX Vaisampayana said, Rising up from his bed at day-dawn, Krishna went through his morning rites, and taking leave of the Bharatas, set out for the city of the Kurus.
Mbh.5.111.5101 Here, in this region, O bull among Bharatas, the regents of the worlds, O Galava, every morning and evening, proclaim, What business of what person shall we do'
Mbh.5.124.5486 If by avoiding this which is productive only of woe, thou wilt achieve thy own good, if, O chastiser of foes, thou wilt escape from the sinful and disreputable deeds of thy brothers, followers, and counsellors, then, O tiger among men, make peace, O bull among the Bharatas, with the sons of Pandu who are all endued with great wisdom and great bravery with great exertion and great learning an all of whom have their souls under complete control.
Mbh.5.125.5554 This resplendent prosperity of the Bharatas amongst all the kings of the earth, thou wilt, during the very life of Dhritarashtra, destroy through thy wickedness, and thou wilt also, through this arrogant disposition of thine, deprive thyself with all thy counsellors, sons, brothers, and kinsmen, of life, if, O thou foremost of Bharata's race, thou transgressest the words of Kesava, thy father, and of wise Vidura, words that are consistent with truth and fraught with benefit to thyself.
Mbh.5.125.5583 Seek thou this great good of the Bharatas like unto an august ceremony of propitiation.
Mbh.5.128.5672 The words I will speak will soon lead to beneficial results, if, indeed, ye Bharatas, ye accept what I say in consequence of its recommending itself to you.
Mbh.5.129.5711 O Duryodhana, obey thou the words of thy well-wishers, those words, viz, which that best of the Bharatas, thy father, and Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and Kshattri, have spoken.
Mbh.5.129.5713 O thou of great wisdom, nobody, O best of the Bharatas, succeedeth by his own desire alone in acquiring and keeping or enjoying a kingdom.
Mbh.5.131.5855 And those heroic bulls amongst the Bharatas, those mighty bowmen, viz, Bhishma, Drona, and Kripa, and Kshattri, and Aswatthaman and Vikarna, and that mighty car-warrior Yuyutsu, all began to follow him.
Mbh.5.138.6190 Therefore, O foremost of the Bharatas, with all thy brothers make peace with the sons of Pandu.
Mbh.5.139.6234 As regards thyself, O thou best of the Bharatas, all thy faults are calculated to bring about disasters on thee.
Mbh.5.141.6356 The Brahmanas will recite this great war of the Bharatas.
Mbh.5.144.6457 What can be a greater grief than this that the Pandavas, the Chedis, the Panchalas, and the Yadavas, assembled together, will fight with the Bharatas?
Mbh.5.149.6685 Yadu, O best of the Bharatas, was born of Devayani and, therefore, O sire, was the daughter's son of Sukra, otherwise called Kavya, of immeasurable energy.
Mbh.5.158.6980 SECTION CLVIII Janamejaya said, When Yudhishthira heard that Bhishma, the high-souled son of Ganga, the foremost of all wielders of weapons, the grandsire of the Bharatas, the head of all the kings, the rival of Vrihaspati in intellect, resembling the ocean in gravity, the mountains of Himavat in calmness, the Creator himself in nobleness, and the sun in energy, and capable of slaying hostile hosts like great Indra himself by showering his arrows, was installed, till his removal by death, in the command of the Kuru army on the eve of the great sacrifice of battle, terrific in its mien and capable of making one's hairs stand on their ends, what did that mighty-armed son of Pandu, that foremost of wielders of weapons, say?
Mbh.5.161.7138 Acquiring the earth by means of the prowess of thy arms, make gifts, O best of the Bharatas, unto the Brahmanas and to the means of thy deceased ancestors as one should.
Mbh.5.164.7413 O gambler's son, repairing hence unto the Bharatas and approaching Duryodhana the son of Dhritarashtra, say unto him that Arjuna hath said, So be it!
Mbh.5.166.7521 Then, O foremost of the Bharatas, come I, the leader of all thy troops, who will exterminate thy foes, vanquishing the Pandavas!
Mbh.5.174.7801 SECTION CLXXIV Duryodhana said, For what reason, O chief of the Bharatas, wilt thou not slay Sikhandin even if thou beholdest him approach thee as a foe with arms upraised?
Mbh.5.174.7804 O bull of the Bharata race, that king of virtuous soul paid his debt to nature in time, Observing my pledge, O chief of the Bharatas, I then installed my brother, Chitrangada, on the throne of the extensive kingdom of the Kurus.
Mbh.5.175.7823 SECTION CLXXV Bhishma said, Then, O chief of the Bharatas, approaching my mother, that daughter of the Dasa clan, and saluting that parent of heroes, I said these words, Having vanquished all the kings, these daughters of the ruler of Kasi, having beauty alone for their dowry, have been abducted by me for the sake of Vichitravirya,
Mbh.5.176.7859 Although she spoke in this strain, Salwa, however, O chief of the Bharatas, rejected that daughter of the ruler of Kasi, like a snake casting off his slough.
Mbh.5.181.8149 O thou of Kuru's race, take with thee, O bull of Bharatas' line, thy cars and all other equipments of battle'
Mbh.5.181.8176 Thus addressed by her, I saluted the goddess reverentially and replied unto her with joined hands, giving her, O chief of the Bharatas, an account of all that had transpired in that self-choice of the daughter of Kasi.
Mbh.5.183.8259 At this, O best of the Bharatas, I swooned on my best of cars.
Mbh.5.183.8286 And it was thus, O best of the Bharatas, that combat took place.
Mbh.5.185.8336 Then, O chief of the Bharatas, in course of that combat, I shot at Rama a powerful and heart-piercing arrow endued with great speed.
Mbh.5.187.8398 Without being able to reach either myself or Rama, those two weapons, O best of the Bharatas, met each other in the mid-air.
Mbh.5.188.8416 Smilingly, O king, they said unto me slowly, O chief of the Bharatas, do even what Narada sayeth.
Mbh.6.2.42 SECTION II Vaisampayana said, Seeing then the two armies standing on the east and the west for the fierce battle that was impending, the holy Rishi Vyasa, the son of Satyavati, that foremost of all persons acquainted with the Vedas, that grandsire of the Bharatas, conversant with the past, the present, and the future, and beholding everything as if it were present before his eyes, said these words in private unto the royal son of Vichitravirya who was then distressed and giving way to sorrow, reflecting on the evil policy of his sons.
Mbh.6.3.206 Thou art the cause of the fame, the achievements, and the inclination for virtue, of the Bharatas.
Mbh.6.4.276 He who knows these truly to be the sacred Gayatri possessed of every virtue, is not liable, O best of the Bharatas, to destruction in this world.
Mbh.6.8.472 O best of the Bharatas, the measure of their lives.
Mbh.6.9.506 Among the tribes of the north are the Mlecchas, and the Kruras, O best of the Bharatas; the Yavanas, the Chinas, the Kamvojas, the Darunas, and many Mleccha tribes; the Sukritvahas, the Kulatthas, the Hunas, and the Parasikas; the Ramanas, and the Dasamalikas.
Mbh.6.9.515 Desirous of enjoying Earth, the kings, O chief of the Bharatas, have become like dogs that snatch meat from one another.
Mbh.6.11.551 Indeed, O best of the Bharatas, Sakadwipa is surrounded on all sides by the ocean.
Mbh.6.11.593 The rivers there are full of sacred water, and Ganga herself, distributed as she hath been into various currents, is there, Sukumari, and Kumari, and Seta, and Keveraka, and Mahanadi, O Kauravya, and the river Manijala, and Chakshus, and the river Vardhanika, O thou best of the Bharatas, these and many other rivers by thousands and hundreds, all full of sacred water, are there, O perpetuator of Kuru's race, from which Vasava draweth water for showering it as rain.
Mbh.6.12.663 They are, O best of the Bharatas, Vamana, and Airavata, and another, and also Supratika
Mbh.6.12.687 Having listened to this charming Bhumi Parva, O chief of the Bharatas, a Kshatriya becometh endued with prosperity, obtaineth fruition of all his desires, and winneth the approbation of the righteous
Mbh.6.13.691 SECTION XIII Bhagavat-Gita Parva Vaisampayana said, Possessing a knowledge of the past, the present and the future, and seeing all things as if present before his eyes, the learned son of Gavalgana, O Bharata, coming quickly from the field of battle, and rushing with grief into the court represented unto Dhritarashtra who was plunged in thought that Bhishma the grandsire of the Bharatas had been slain
Mbh.6.13.694 Bhishma, the son of Santanu and the grandsire of the Bharatas, hath been slain.
Mbh.6.13.695 That foremost of all warriors, that grandsire of the Bharatas, hath been slain.
Mbh.6.15.794 Having bowed down to thy father, that wise and high-souled son of Parasara, through whose grace, through whose boon bestowed on me I have obtained excellent and celestial apprehension, sight beyond the range of the visual sense, and hearing, O king, from great distance, knowledge of other people's hearts and also of the past and the future, a knowledge also of the origin of all persons transgressing the ordinances the delightful power of coursing through the skies, and untouchableness by weapons in battles, listen to me in detail as I recite the romantic and highly wonderful battle that happened between the Bharatas, a battle that makes one's hair stand on end.
Mbh.6.19.939 When the troops stood arrayed, O bull of Bharata's race, the Sun rose divested of splendour, and the Earth trembled with a loud sound, and cracked in many places, O chief of the Bharatas, with loud noise.
Mbh.6.47.2401 And, O chief of the Bharatas, they hurled those seven darts at Sweta's car.
Mbh.6.47.2403 Then taking up an arrow capable of penetrating into every part of the body, he shot it, O chief of the Bharatas, at Rukmaratha.
Mbh.6.48.2521 Then thy sire, O chief of the Bharatas, beholding that mighty car-warrior Sweta, though the latter was then surrounded by those tigers among men with Bhimasena at their head, thy sire the son of Ganga-advanced steadily for the sake of the generalissimo Sweta alone.
Mbh.6.48.2524 And the grandsire of the Bharatas also struck Satyaki, in that combat, with a hundred arrows, and Dhrishtadyumna with twenty and the Kekaya brothers with five.
Mbh.6.50.2626 Beholding the son of Pandu stricken with grief and deprived of his senses by sorrow, Govinda then gladdening all the Pandavas said, Do not grieve, O chief of the Bharatas.
Mbh.6.65.3551 Listen again, O king, to what thou hast asked me, viz, the true cause, O chief of the Bharatas, of the victory of the Pandavas.
Mbh.6.65.3565 Let peace be made with the Pandavas, O best of the Bharatas.
Mbh.6.69.3763 The grandsire of the Bharatas, however, getting Sikhandin before him, avoided him, remembering the femininity of his sex.
Mbh.6.70.3786 And many warriors, O best of the Bharatas, belonging to both thy army and that of the foe, deeply pierced with shafts jumped up and fell down.
Mbh.6.82.4258 SECTION LXXXII Sanjaya said, O chief of the Bharatas, Ganga's son, once more addressing thy son who was plunged in thought, told him these delightful words, Myself and Drona and Salya and Kritavarman of Satwata's race, and Aswatthaman and Vikarna and Bhagadatta and Suvala's son and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Valhika with the Valhikas and the mighty king of the Trigartas and the invincible ruler of the Magadhas, Vrihadvala the king of the Kosalas, and Chitrasena and Vivingsati and many thousands of car-warriors graced with tall standards, a large number of country-born steeds well-mounted with excellent horse-soldiers and many infuriate elephants of large size with temporal juice issuing from their mouths and cheeks, and many brave foot-soldiers armed with diverse weapons and born in diverse realms, are all prepared to do battle for thy sake
Mbh.6.83.4326 Then Drona slew Virata's steeds with eight straight shafts, and then his charioteer, O chief of the Bharatas, with one shaft.
Mbh.6.87.4579 Then Sikhandin, sighting the grandsire of the Bharatas, rushed at him impetuously, saying, Wait, Wait, Remembering, however, the femininity of Sikhandin, and disregarding him on that account, Bhishma proceeded against the Srinjayas.
Mbh.6.92.4874 Inflamed with rage, O chief of the Bharatas, that mighty car-warrior, viz, thy son Duryodhana, then slew with four shafts four of the principal Rakshasas, viz, Vegavat, Maharudra, Vidyujihva, and Pramathin.
Mbh.6.92.4875 And once again, O chief of the Bharatas, that warrior of immeasurable soul, sped at the Rakshasa host showers of arrows that could with difficulty be resisted.
Mbh.6.94.4936 SECTION XCIV Sanjaya said, Having in that battle made all those warriors of thy army turn their faces from the field, the Rakshasa then, O chief of the Bharatas, rushed at Duryodhana, desirous of slaying him.
Mbh.6.94.4943 Hearing those roars of the Rakshasa, O chief of the Bharatas, king Yudhishthira then, addressing Bhima, said unto that chastiser of foes these words, The noise that we hear uttered by the fiercely-roaring Rakshasa, without doubt, indicates that he is battling with the mighty car-warriors of the Dhartarashtra army.
Mbh.6.96.5040 O tiger among the Bharatas, though thus situated, yet have I been defeated into battle by the Pandava warriors headed by Bhimasena relying upon Ghatotkacha.
Mbh.6.96.5044 Hearing these words of the king, that foremost one among the Bharatas, viz, Bhishma, the son of Santanu, said these words unto Duryodhana, Listen, O king, to these words of mine that I say unto thee, O thou of Kuru's race, about the way in which thou, O chastiser of foes, shouldst always behave.
Mbh.6.96.5083 Deeply pierced and exceedingly pained, that elephant, O chief of the Bharatas, its fury quelled, speedily turned back with great force.
Mbh.6.96.5114 Deeply pierced by Bhagadatta in that battle, and exceedingly pained, Visoka thereupon, O chief of the Bharatas, sat down on the terrace of the car.
Mbh.6.96.5118 Beholding his brothers, those mighty car-warriors, engaged in battle, that son of Pandu quickly commenced to fight, profusely scattering his shafts, O chief of the Bharatas.
Mbh.6.101.5384 Indeed, O king, the vast host of the Bharatas, afflicted by him, reeled hither and thither like a woman drunk with wine.
Mbh.6.104.5531 Then Sikhandin pierced the grandsire of the Bharatas with many shafts.
Mbh.6.106.5639 Then Duryodhana, filled with grief on seeing his troops vanquished, addressed the ruler of the Madras, O chief of the Bharatas, and said, There, the eldest son of Pandu, accompanied by the twins in battle, in thy very sight, O thou of mighty arms, routeth our troops, O lord.
Mbh.6.110.6007 Having said these words, O chief of the Bharatas, that invincible warrior, scattering his shafts among the Kshatriyas, attacked the Pandava host.
Mbh.6.111.6060 And once more, O chief of the Bharatas, he pierced Arjuna in the forehead with three sharp shafts.
Mbh.6.114.6206 Then, O sire, with a couple of broad-headed arrows, he cut off, O chief of the Bharatas, the bow of the high-souled king of the Sindhus in the middle.
Mbh.6.115.6279 Sikhandin also, sighting the grandsire of the Bharatas, was filled with joy and rushed at him, abandoning all fear of the mighty car-warrior.
Mbh.6.117.6345 And once more, O Chief of the Bharatas, that mighty car-warrior of Bharata's race struck the Kuru king with ten fierce shafts in the centre of his chest.
Mbh.6.117.6406 Sikhandin, however, without any anxiety, coming up at the grandsire of the Bharatas, quickly pierced him with great many arrows.
Mbh.6.118.6477 Having vanquished those mighty car-warriors, O chief of the Bharatas, in the forenoon, Partha blazed up in that battle like a smokeless conflagration.
Mbh.6.120.6569 And the battle that took place between these and the Kaurava warriors was fierce, making the hair stand on end, and resembling O chief of the Bharatas, the battle of the gods with the Danavas.
Mbh.6.120.6578 And with those five arrows, O chief of the Bharatas, the angry Arjuna cut off into five fragments that dart hurled from Bhishma's arms.
Mbh.6.120.6596 Then Sikhandin, O king, excited with rage, struck the grandsire of the Bharatas in the chest with nine sharp arrows.
Mbh.6.120.6664 Beholding that high-souled son of Ganga, that chief of the Bharatas, they walked round him, and the Sun being then in the southern solstice, they said, addressing one another, these words, Being a high-souled person, why should Bhishma pass out of the world during the southern declension'
Mbh.6.120.6679 When the grandsire of the Bharatas who was endued with great might was overthrown, thy son, O bull of Bharata's race, knew not what to do.
Mbh.6.120.6694 And the deceased ancestors of the Bharatas also praised Bhishma.
Mbh.6.121.6715 Even thus did the Rishis together with the Siddhas and the Charanas said of that foremost one of the Bharatas as he lay on his bed of arrows.
Mbh.6.121.6716 When Santanu's son Bhishma, the grandsire of the Bharatas, was slain, thy sons, O sire, knew not what to do.
Mbh.6.122.6756 Then that chief of the Bharatas, viz, Bhishma of virtuous soul, conversant with the truths of religion, seeing that Arjuna, having divined his thought, had achieved that feat, became highly gratified.
Mbh.6.122.6758 And casting his eyes upon all the Bharatas there, he addressed Kunti's son Arjuna, that foremost of all warriors, that enhancer of the joys of his friends and said, Thou hast given me, O son of Pandu, a pillow that becometh my bed!
Mbh.6.123.6811 Then that foremost of car-warriors, mounted on his car, circumambulated that prostrate chief of the Bharatas, that foremost of all wielders of weapons.
Mbh.7.1.26 Indeed, O chief of the Bharatas, the Bharata host, on the fall of Ganga's son, became like a frail boat on the bosom of the ocean, tossed by a tempest blowing from every side.
Mbh.7.2.62 Sanjaya continued, Upon the fall of that boon-giving hero of great might, that lord of the world, viz, Santanu's son of great energy, and upon the consequent defeat of the Bharatas, Karna, with cheerless heart and eyes filled with tears, began to console the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.7.3.109 Beholding him who was always an island unto persons sinking in the fathomless ocean in their endeavours to cross it, beholding that hero covered with arrows that had coursed in a stream as continuous as that of Yamuna, that hero who looked like Mainaka of unbearable energy thrown down on the earth by the great Indra, that warrior lying prostrate on the earth like the Sun dropped down from the firmament, that one who looked like the inconceivable Indra himself after his defeat of old by Vritra, that depriver of all warriors of their senses, that foremost of all combatants, that signal of all bowmen, beholding that hero and bull among men, viz, thy sire Bhishma of high vows, that grandsire of the Bharatas thrown down in battle and lying covered with Arjuna's shafts, on a hero's bed.
Mbh.7.3.117 From this day, O chief of the Bharatas, the Pandavas, excited with wrath, will slaughter the Kurus like tigers slaying deer.
Mbh.7.12.468 Inasmuch as thou wishest him to be alive, thou either seekest to preserve thy race from extinction, or, O chief of the Bharatas, thou, having vanquished the Pandavas in battle, art desirous of establishing brotherly relation with them by giving them their kingdom.
Mbh.7.19.886 Then the field of battle, O chief of the Bharatas, strewn with mighty car-warriors deprived of life, looked dreadful like Yama's domains, abounding with the spirits of the departed creatures.
Mbh.7.20.891 After Partha went out for slaying the Samsaptakas, Drona then, at the head of his troops arrayed for battle, proceeded, O chief of the Bharatas, for seizing king Yudhishthira the just.
Mbh.7.23.1157 Mighty steeds of gigantic size, of the Aratta breed, bore the mighty-armed Vrihanta of red eyes mounted on his golden car, that prince, viz, who, rejecting the opinions of all the Bharatas, hath singly, from his reverence for Yudhishthira.
Mbh.7.30.1609 Then Karna that foremost of Bharata car-warriors, that delighter of all the Bharatas, that first of all persons acquainted with weapons, invoked into existence the Agneya weapon.
Mbh.7.39.1971 That noise, O chief of the Bharatas, filled all the points of the compass.
Mbh.7.70.3072 O best of the Bharatas, these brothers of thine are all exceedingly cheerless, as also the king, and these thy friends, seeing thee plunged in grief.
Mbh.7.83.3685 O child, I have kinsmen to whose voice the Pandavas will ever listen, such, for instance, as Salya, Somadatta, the high-souled Bhishma, Drona, Vikarna, Valhika, Kripa, and others among the Bharatas that are illustrious and reverend in years.
Mbh.7.100.4679 Indeed, that blare, O best of Bharatas, filled all the points of the compass, and was echoed back by both the armies.
Mbh.7.103.4783 Then, O Bharata, Yudhishthira, that chief of the Bharatas, struck Drona with ninety straight shafts in all his vital parts.
Mbh.7.103.4784 Enraged by the famous son of Kunti, Drona struck him in return, O chief of the Bharatas, in the centre of the chest with five and twenty shafts.
Mbh.7.106.4939 Then that Rakshasa, O chief of the Bharatas, viz, the son of Hidimva, filled with rage, pierced that other angry Rakshasa in battle with many shafts.
Mbh.7.108.5099 SECTION CX Sanjaya said, That bull amongst the Sinis, viz, Satyaki, hearing these words o, full affection, agreeable, fraught with sweet sounds, opportune, delightful, and equitable that were uttered by king Yudhishthira the just, replied unto him, O chief of the Bharatas, saying, O thou of unfading glory, I have heard all the words thou hast said, words fraught with justice, delightful, and conducive to fame for the sake of Phalguna.
Mbh.7.110.5305 Smiting the great host of Karna with whetted arrows, Satyaki penetrated into the vast and limitless army of the Bharatas.
Mbh.7.129.6469 Indeed, O best of Bharatas, it became as frightful to behold as the city of the dead.
Mbh.7.134.6701 O chief of the Bharatas, suffer the fruit of all that with thy sons.
Mbh.7.136.6776 And in consequence of that clash of the arrowy showers of those two lions among men, a conflagration, O chief of the Bharatas, seemed to be generated in the sky.
