MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.2.256 It was then that his forefathers of whom Richika was the first having arrived there addressed him thus, O Rama, O blessed Rama, O offspring of Bhrigu, we have been gratified with the reverence thou hast shown for thy ancestors and with thy valour, O mighty one!
Mbh.1.2.364 The Paushya parva treats of the greatness of Utanka, and the Pauloma, of the sons of Bhrigu.
Mbh.1.2.387 Then the story of Rishyasringa who adopted Brahmacharya mode of life from his very boyhood; then the history of Rama of great prowess, the son of Jamadagni, in which has been narrated the death of Kartavirya and the Haihayas; then the meeting between the Pandavas and the Vrishnis in the sacred spot called Prabhasa; then the story of Su-kanya in which Chyavana, the son of Bhrigu, made the twins, Aswinis, drink, at the sacrifice of king Saryati, the Soma juice from which they had been excluded by the other gods, and in which besides is shown how Chyavana himself acquired perpetual youth as a boon from the grateful Aswinis.
Mbh.1.5.983 In the first place, I am desirous of hearing the history of the race of Bhrigu.
Mbh.1.5.986 O descendant of the Bhrigu race, attend then to so much as relateth to the exalted race of Bhrigu, revered by Indra and all the gods, by the tribes of Rishis and Maruts Winds.
Mbh.1.5.988 The great and blessed saint Bhrigu, we are informed, was produced by the self-existing Brahma from the fire at the sacrifice of Varuna.
Mbh.1.5.989 And Bhrigu had a son, named Chyavana, whom he dearly loved.
Mbh.1.5.996 Saunaka said, O son of Suta, I ask thee why the illustrious son of Bhrigu was named Chyavana.
Mbh.1.5.998 Sauti replied, Bhrigu had a wife named Puloma whom he dearly loved.
Mbh.1.5.999 She became big with child by Bhrigu.
Mbh.1.5.1000 And one day while the virtuous continent Puloma was in that condition, Bhrigu, great among those that are true to their religion, leaving her at home went out to perform his ablutions.
Mbh.1.5.1002 And entering the Rishi's abode, the Rakshasa saw the wife of Bhrigu, irreproachable in everything.
Mbh.1.5.1007 And, indeed, she of agreeable smiles, had been betrothed by her father himself, to him, although the former subsequently bestowed her, according to due rites, on Bhrigu.
Mbh.1.5.1008 O thou of the Bhrigu race, this wound rankled deep in the Rakshasa's mind and he thought the present moment very opportune for carrying the lady away.
Mbh.1.5.1012 This lady of superior complexion had been first accepted by me as wife, but her father subsequently bestowed her on the false Bhrigu.
Mbh.1.5.1013 Tell me truly if this fair one can be regarded as the wife of Bhrigu, for having found her alone, I have resolved to take her away by force from the hermitage.
Mbh.1.5.1014 My heart burneth with rage when I reflect that Bhrigu hath got possession of this woman of slender waist, first betrothed to me
Mbh.1.5.1019 Has not Bhrigu appropriated her who was chosen by me as my wife?
Mbh.1.5.1021 After thy answer as to whether she is the wife of Bhrigu, I will bear her away from this hermitage even in sight of thee.
Mbh.1.5.1026 But this far-famed lady was bestowed by her father on Bhrigu as a gift from desire of blessing.
Mbh.1.5.1027 She was not bestowed on thee O Rakshasa, this lady was duly made by the Rishi Bhrigu his wife with Vedic rites in my presence.
Mbh.1.6.1032 Then the child of Bhrigu lying in her body enraged at such violence, dropped from his mother's womb, for which he obtained the name of Chyavana.
Mbh.1.6.1034 And the beautiful Pauloma, distracted with grief, O Brahmana of the Bhrigu race, took up her offspring Chyavana, the son of Bhrigu and walked away.
Mbh.1.6.1038 And that river began to follow the foot-steps of the wife of the great ascetic Bhrigu.
Mbh.1.6.1041 And in this manner was born Chyavana of great ascetic power, the son of Bhrigu.
Mbh.1.6.1042 And Bhrigu saw his child Chyavana and its beautiful mother.
Mbh.1.6.1050 Sauti continued, Bhrigu, upon hearing this account from Pauloma, became exceedingly enraged.
Mbh.1.7.1053 SECTION VII Pauloma Parva continued Sauti said, the god of fire enraged at the curse of Bhrigu, thus addressed the Rishi, What meaneth this rashness, O Brahmana, that thou hast displayed towards me?
Mbh.1.7.1079 Once Agni hath been cursed by Bhrigu for some reason.
Mbh.1.7.1101 Thus, O possessor of the six attributes, had Agni been cursed in the days of yore by Bhrigu.
Mbh.1.8.1104 SECTION VIII Pauloma Parva continued Sauti said, O Brahmana, Chyavana, the son of Bhrigu, begot a son in the womb of his wife Sukanya.
Mbh.1.8.1112 And the Apsara, Menaka, O thou of the Bhrigu race, when her time was come, brought forth an infant near the hermitage of Sthulakesa.
Mbh.1.8.1119 And Ruru by means of his companions made his father Pramati, the son of Bhrigu, acquainted with his passion.
Mbh.1.9.1151 And the celestial messenger said unto Ruru, Resign half of thy own life to thy bride, and then, O Ruru of the race of Bhrigu, thy Pramadvara shall rise from the ground'
Mbh.1.18.1349 Sauti continued, O son of Bhrigu!
Mbh.1.46.2399 And then, O son of Bhrigu, he asked Vasuki the maiden's name, and also said unto him, I shall not maintain her
Mbh.1.48.2485 He studied the Vedas and their branches with the ascetic Chyavana, the son of Bhrigu.
Mbh.1.59.2863 SECTION LIX Adivansavatarana Parva Saunaka said, O son, thou hast narrated to me this extensive and great history commencing from the progeny of Bhrigu.
Mbh.1.66.3373 The illustrious Bhrigu came out, ripping open the breast of Brahman.
Mbh.1.66.3377 And after Sukra was thus employed by Brahman in seeking the welfare of the gods and the Asuras, Bhrigu begot another excellent son.
Mbh.1.67.3497 And possessed of mighty energy and the first of all persons acquainted with weapons, he encountered the illustrious Rama himself, the son of Jamadagni of the Bhrigu race.
Mbh.1.75.4189 Vaisampayana continued, Then that tiger among kings, having installed his son Puru on the throne, went away to the mount of Bhrigu for devoting himself to asceticism.
Mbh.1.80.4461 Vrishaparvan then said, O son of Bhrigu, never have I attributed want of virtue, of falsehood, to thee.
Mbh.1.83.4681 O son of Bhrigu, this king is renowned for his knowledge of the precepts of religion.
Mbh.1.83.4687 He who, solicited in secret by a woman full of desire and in season, goeth not in unto her, loseth virtue and is called by the learned a killer of the embryo, O son of Bhrigu, for these reasons, and anxious to avoid sin, I went into Sarmishtha'
Mbh.1.83.4692 And Yayati said, O son of Bhrigu, I have not yet been satiated with youth or with Devayani.
Mbh.1.131.7032 Arrived at Mahendra, the son of Bharadwaja possessed of high ascetic merit, beheld the son of Bhrigu, the exterminator of all foes, endued with great patience and with mind under complete control.
Mbh.1.131.7033 Then, approaching with his disciples that scion of the Bhrigu race Drona, giving him his name, told him of his birth in the line of Angiras.
Mbh.1.131.7046 Drona answered, O son of Bhrigu, it behoveth thee to give me all thy weapons together with the mysteries of hurling and recalling them'
Mbh.1.131.7047 Saying, So be it' the son of Bhrigu gave all his weapons unto Drona, indeed, the whole science of arms with its rules and mysteries.
Mbh.1.179.9192 And the Kshatriyas wandered over the earth, slaughtering even the embryos that were in the wombs of the women of the Bhrigu race.
Mbh.1.179.9193 And while the Bhrigu race was thus being exterminated, the women of that tribe fled from fear to the inaccessible mountains of Himavat.
Mbh.1.180.9206 This child, however, of the Bhrigu race hath certainly been angry with you.
Mbh.1.180.9208 Ye children, while ye were destroying even the embryos of the Bhrigu race, this child was held by me in my thigh for a hundred years!
Mbh.1.180.9210 It is plain that this scion of the Bhrigu race, enraged at the slaughter of his fathers, desireth to slay you!
Mbh.1.180.9218 But the Muni Aurva of the Bhrigu race resolved upon overcoming the whole world.
Mbh.1.180.9220 And that scion of the Bhrigu race, for paying homage as he regarded unto his slaughtered ancestors, devoted himself to the austerest of penances with the object of destroying the whole world.
Mbh.1.181.9244 While lying unborn within my mother's thigh, I heard the doleful cries of my mother and other women of the Bhrigu race who were then being exterminated by the Kshatriyas.
Mbh.1.181.9247 Then when the Bhrigu women found not a single protector, my mother held me in one of her thighs.
Mbh.1.216.10571 Thence the son of Kunti proceeded to the peak of Bhrigu.
Mbh.2.4.119 Janghabandhu, Raibhya, Kopavega, and Bhrigu: Harivabhru, Kaundinya, Vabhrumali, and Sanatana, Kakshivat, and Ashija, Nachiketa, and Aushija, Nachiketa, and Gautama; Painga, Varaha, Sunaka, and Sandilya of great ascetic merit: Kukkura, Venujangha, Kalapa and Katha, these virtuous and learned Munis with senses and souls under complete control, and many others as numerous, all well-skilled in the Vedas and Vedangas and conversant with rules of morality and pure and spotless in behaviour, waited on the illustrious Yudhishthira, and gladdened him by their sacred discourses.
Mbh.2.7.333 These and many other illustrious ascetics of rigid wows, and Bhrigu and the seven Rishis who are equal, O king, unto Brahma himself, come to and leave that assembly house, riding on cars beautiful as the car of Soma, and themselves looking as bright therein as Soma himself.
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.2.76.3263 Formerly thou wert instructed on the mountains of Himavat by Meru Savarni; in the town of Varanavata by Krishna Dwaipayana; on the cliff of Bhrigu by Rama; and on the banks of the Dhrishadwati by Sambhu himself.
Mbh.2.76.3264 Thou hast also listened to the instruction of the great Rishi Asita on the hills of Anjana; and thou becamest a disciple of Bhrigu on the banks of the Kalmashi.
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.3.83.4147 Gratified with the oblations those Rishis then addressed Rama and said, O Rama, O Rama, O thou of great good fortune, we have been gratified with thee, O thou of the Bhrigu race, for this thy regard for the Pitris, and thy prowess, O exalted one!
Mbh.3.83.4158 O king, having granted him these boons, the Pitris joyfully saluted Rama of the Bhrigu race and disappeared there and then.
Mbh.3.83.4159 It was thus that the lakes of the illustrious Rama of the Bhrigu race became sacred.
Mbh.3.85.4654 It was there that the Rishis and the gods Varuna, Agni, Prajapati, Narayana also called Hari, Mahadeva and the illustrious Grandsire of great splendour, appointed the resplendent Bhrigu to officiate at a sacrifice.
Mbh.3.85.4655 Gratifying Agni by libations of clarified butter poured according to the ordinance, the illustrious Bhrigu once performed the Agnyadhana sacrifice for all those Rishis, after which both they and the gods went away to their respective homes one after another.
Mbh.3.87.4798 In that quarter, O descendant of the Kuru race, is the mountain called Mahendra, sacred to the illustrious Rama of the Bhrigu race.
Mbh.3.90.4885 There also is the mountain named Puru which is resorted to by great Rishis and where Pururavas was born, and Bhrigu practised ascetic austerities.
Mbh.3.99.5198 And behold there, O Yudhisthira, the tirtha of Bhrigu that is celebrated over the three worlds and adored, O king, by great Rishis.
Mbh.3.99.5241 There in that river is the tirthas called Diptoda where thy grandsire Bhrigu, O Rama, in the celestial age had practised ascetic penances of great merit'
Mbh.3.115.5915 It is desired on that occasion to obtain a sight of the descendant of Bhrigu'
Mbh.3.115.5940 And Richika, the son of Bhrigu, asked for her to be united with himself in marriage.
Mbh.3.115.5955 And when the marriage had been celebrated, O king, his father Bhrigu came on a visit to see him and his wife; and he was glad to see his praiseworthy son.
Mbh.3.115.5958 And then the revered saint, Bhrigu, glad at heart, thus spoke to his daughter-in-law, saying, O lovely daughter, as for a boon I am ready to grant thee any object of thy wish'
Mbh.3.115.5961 Bhrigu said, During the days that your season lasts, thou and thy mother must take a bath, with the ceremony for bringing forth a male child.
Mbh.3.115.5970 Then Bhrigu possessed of mighty strength, spake to Satyavati, his daughter-in-law, saying, O dutiful girl!
Mbh.3.115.5980 And this son of Bhrigu was endowed with both splendour and grace.
Mbh.3.116.6018 Then the descendant of Bhrigu, the exterminator of hostile heroes, put forth his valour on the field of battle, and with sharpened arrows with flattened tips, which were shot from a beautiful bow, cut down Arjuna's arms, which numbered a thousand, and were massive like wooden bolts for barring the door.
Mbh.3.122.6219 SECTION CXXII Lomasa said, A son was born to the great saint Bhrigu, Chyavana by name.
Mbh.3.122.6244 Who is it that hath done wrong to the illustrious son of Bhrigu, old and ever engaged in austerities and of wrathful temper?
Mbh.3.122.6253 Chyavana the son of Bhrigu, addressed the monarch saying, Disregarding me, this one, filled with pride hath pierced my eyes.
Mbh.3.124.6298 And well pleased he came, accompanied by his troops, to the hermitage of the son of Bhrigu.
Mbh.3.124.6302 Then, O king, the son of Bhrigu spake to the king these words of a soothing nature: I shall, O king, officiate at a religious ceremony to be performed by thee: let the requisite articles, therefore, be procured'
Mbh.3.124.6305 There Chyavana, the son of Bhrigu, officiated for the king as his priest.
Mbh.3.124.6318 Lomasa said, When these very identical words were spoken again and again by the lord of celestials, the son of Bhrigu, setting Indra at naught, took up the offering he had intended to make.
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.3.126.6409 And in this state he entered the hermitage of Bhrigu.
Mbh.3.126.6427 Then the revered son of Bhrigu spoke unto him, saying.
Mbh.3.141.7174 Accustomed to sing the Sama hymns, the sages, Marichi, Pulaha, Bhrigu and Angiras, chanted them at this spot.
Mbh.3.182.9076 And, O descendant of Bhrigu, is what we experience in this world the result of the acts of this very life?
Mbh.3.221.11220 He was roused by the penance of Bhrigu and Angiras.
Mbh.3.223.11280 And he also observed Agni conveying oblations offered with various hymns by Bhrigu, Angiras, and others and entering the disc of the Sun.
Mbh.3.230.11616 And the Pattisa, O king, was followed by the bright umbrella of Rudra and the Kamandalu served by the Maharshis; and on it progressed in the company of Bhrigu, Angiras and others.
Mbh.5.83.3980 And Vasishtha and Vamadeva, and Bhuridyumna and Gaya, and Kratha and Sukra and Kusika and Bhrigu, and other Brahmarshis and celestial Rishis united together, all stood on the right side of Krishna, that delighter of the Yadavas, that younger brother of Vasava.
Mbh.5.117.5285 And the royal sage then sported with her, as Surya with Prabhavati, Agni with Swaha, Vasava with Sachi, Chandra with Rohini, Yama with Urmila, Varuna with Gauri, Kuvera with Riddhi, Narayana with Lakshmi, Sagara with Jahnavi, Rudra with Rudrani, the Grandsire with Saraswati, Vasishtha's son Saktri with Adrisyanti, Vasishtha with Arundhati called also Akshamala, Chyavana with Sukanya, Pulastya with Sandhya, Agastya with the princess of Vidarbha Lopamudra, Satyavan with Savitri, Bhrigu with Puloma, Kasyapa with Aditi, Richika's son Jamadagni with Renuka, Kusika's son Viswamitra with Himavati, Vrihaspati with Tara, Sukra with Sataprava, Bhumipati with Bhumi, Pururavas with Urvasi, Richika with Satyavati, Manu with Saraswati, Dushyanta with Sakuntala, the eternal Dharma with Dhriti, Nala with Damayanti, Narada, with Satyavati, Jaratkaru with Jaratkaru, Pulastya with Pratichya, Urnayus with Menaka, Tumvuru with Rambha, Vasuki with Satasirsha, Dhananjaya with Kamari, Rama with the princess of Videha Sita, or Janardana with Rukmini.
Mbh.5.178.7947 And how shall I go to that descendant of Bhrigu?
Mbh.5.179.8024 And she then sought the protection of that descendant of Bhrigu, who was the refuge of all distressed persons.
Mbh.5.181.8125 In view of such circumstances, I shall certainly do, O son of Bhrigu, what I can.
Mbh.5.181.8130 There, O Rama, where in days of yore thou hadst propitiated thy deceased fathers with oblations of Kshatriya blood, slaying thee there, O son of Bhrigu, I will propitiate the Kshatriya slain by thee!
Mbh.6.34.1595 I am Bhrigu among the great Rishis, I am the One, undestructible syllable Om among words.
Mbh.6.68.3708 The illustrious Bhrigu said of thee that thou art the God of the gods, that thine is the ancient form of Vishnu.
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.8.34.1694 And the lord Sankara cast on that arrow his own irresistible and fierce wrath, the unbearable fire of anger, viz, that which was born of wrath of Bhrigu and Angirasa.
Mbh.8.34.1803 Those weapons, O son, of Bhrigu, burn a person that is incompetent and that is not deserving of them'
Mbh.8.34.1814 That god, having promised the destruction of their foes unto the celestials, summoned Rama the descendant of Bhrigu.
Mbh.8.34.1815 And Sankara addressed Rama, saying, O descendant of Bhrigu, slay all the assembled foes of the gods, from desire of doing good unto all the worlds as also for my satisfaction'
Mbh.8.34.1823 Thus addressed by the descendant of Bhrigu, the Daityas began to fight.
Mbh.8.34.1827 Gratified also with that feat of his, the illustrious god gave diverse kinds of boons unto the high-souled son of Bhrigu.
Mbh.8.34.1833 The descendant of Bhrigu gave the whole science of weapons unto the high-souled Karna, O tiger among kings with delighted heart.
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.9.45.3374 Vaishampayana said, Agni of great energy became very much frightened at the curse of Bhrigu.
Mbh.9.45.3380 Agni also, from Bhrigu's curse, became an eater of everything, as Bhrigu, that utterer of Brahma, had said.
Mbh.9.49.3643 Equal unto the Creator himself, Dadhica, had been begotten by the great rishi Bhrigu, the son of the Lord of all creatures, with the aid of his austere penances.
Mbh.12.3.129 In the Krita period, O sire, I was of the same age with Bhrigu.
Mbh.12.3.134 Bhrigu replied unto me, saying.
Mbh.12.48.2555 For what reason was the Kshatriya order thus exterminated in days of yore by Rama, the high-souled descendant of Bhrigu, O tiger among the Yadus?
Mbh.12.49.2569 The puissant Gadhi gave her for wife unto Richika, a descendant of Bhrigu.
Mbh.12.49.2624 Slaughtering thousands of Haihayas in rage, the descendent of Bhrigu, O king, made the earth miry with blood.
Mbh.12.49.2632 The descendant of Bhrigu, hearing these words of Paravasu, once more took up arms and once more strewed the earth with hundreds of Kshatriya bodies.
Mbh.12.121.6914 Marichi gave it to Bhrigu.
Mbh.12.121.6915 Bhrigu gave that rod intended for the protection of righteousness, unto all the Rishis.
Mbh.12.142.8701 Unto him desirous of listening with humility the son of Bhrigu narrated this story of how a pigeon, O monarch, won success entitling him to the highest heavenly bliss'
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.12.181.10912 Bhishma said, In this connection is cited the old narrative of the sacred words that Bhrigu said in reply to the questions of Bharadwaja.
Mbh.12.181.10913 Beholding the great Rishi Bhrigu blazing with energy and splendour, seated on the Kailasa summit, Bharadwaja addressed him in the following words'
Mbh.12.181.10921 Thus addressed about his doubts by Bharadwaja, the illustrious and regenerate Rishi Bhrigu who resembled Brahma itself, replied unto him, saying these words'
Mbh.12.181.10922 Bhrigu said, There is a Primeval Being, known to the great Rishis, of the name of Manasa.
Mbh.12.181.10958 Bhrigu said, The sky thou seest above is Infinite.
Mbh.12.181.10985 Bhrigu said, The Earth it is that is called the Lotus.
Mbh.12.182.10990 Bhrigu said, The great Manasa in his form of Brahman created the diverse kinds of objects by fiat of Will.
Mbh.12.182.11001 Bhrigu said, O regenerate one, in very ancient times called the Brahma-kalpa, the high-souled Rishis of the regenerate order, when they assembled together, felt this very doubt about the creation of the universe.
Mbh.12.183.11019 Bhrigu said, All things that belong to the category of the Infinite or the Vast receive the appellation of Great.
Mbh.12.183.11039 Bhrigu said, Without doubt, though possessed of density, trees have space within them.
Mbh.12.184.11116 Bhrigu said, I shall, O regenerate one, speak to thee of the course in which the wind moves, and how, O sinless one, that mighty element causes the bodies of living creatures to move and exert themselves.
Mbh.12.186.11176 SECTION CLXXXVII Bhrigu said, There is no destruction of the living creature, or of what is given, or of our other acts.
Mbh.12.186.11184 Bhrigu said, It is true that upon the consumption of fuel fire is no longer seen.
Mbh.12.186.11209 Bhrigu said, The mind also is made of the five elements in common with the body.
Mbh.12.187.11243 SECTION CLXXXVIII Bhrigu said, Brahman first created a few Brahmanas who came to be called Prajapatis lords of creation.
Mbh.12.187.11255 Bhrigu said, There is really no distinction between the different orders.
Mbh.12.188.11276 Bhrigu said, That person is called a Brahmana who has been sanctified by such rites as those called jata and others; who is pure in behaviour; who is engaged in studying the Vedas; who is devoted to the six well-known acts of ablutions every morning and evening, silent recitation of mantras, pouring libations on the sacrificial fire, worshipping the deities, doing the duties of hospitality to guests, and offering food to the Viswedevas; who is properly observant of all pious acts; who never takes food without having offered it duly to gods and guests; who is filled with reverence for his preceptor; and who is always devoted to vows and truth.
Mbh.12.189.11302 SECTION CXC Bhrigu said, Truth is Brahma; Truth is Penance; it is Truth that creates all creatures.
Mbh.12.189.11334 Bhrigu said, On this it is said as follows: from Untruth springs Darkness.
Mbh.12.190.11360 Bhrigu said, By pouring libations on the sacred fire, sin is burnt.
Mbh.12.190.11372 Bhrigu said, Those wise men who are engaged in practising the duties laid down for them succeed in obtaining heaven as their reward.
Mbh.12.190.11375 Bhrigu said, In days of yore, the divine Brahman, for benefiting the world, and for the protection of righteousness, indicated four modes of life
Mbh.12.191.11406 SECTION CXCII Bhrigu said, Forest recluses seeking the acquisition of virtue go to sacred waters and rivers and springs, and undergo penances in lone and secluded woods abounding with deer and buffaloes and boars and tigers and wild elephants.
Mbh.12.191.11437 Bhrigu said, Towards the north, on the other side of Himavat, which is sacred and possessed of every merit, there is a region that is sacred, blessed, and highly desirable.
Mbh.12.191.11472 Bhishma continued, Thus, O king, did Bhrigu speak unto Bharadwaja of great energy.
Mbh.12.230.14276 Having heard before this excellent discourse of Bhrigu unto the regenerate sage Bharadwaja which thou didst recite, my understanding, purged of ignorance, has become exceedingly attached to yoga, and withdrawn from worldly objects rests upon heavenly purity.
Mbh.12.296.18482 Originally only four Gotras races arose, O monarch, viz, Angiras, Kasyapa, Vasishtha, and Bhrigu.
Mbh.12.318.19884 I have heard discourses on this subject from Jaigishavya, Aista, Devala, the regenerate sage Parasara, the intelligent Varshaganya, Bhrigu, Panchasikha Kapila, Suka, Gautama, Arshtisena, the high-souled Garga, Narada, Asuri, the intelligent Paulastya, Sanatkumara, the high-souled Sukra, and my sire Kasyapa.
Mbh.12.334.21394 Brahman, Sthanu, Manu, Daksha, Bhrigu, Dharma, Yama, Marichi, Angiras, Atri, Pulastya, Pulaha, Kratu, Vasishtha, Parameshthi, Vivaswat, Shoma, he that has been called Karddama, Krodha, Avak, and Krita, these one and twenty persons, called Prajapatis, were first born.
Mbh.12.339.21934 In the Treta age I shall take birth as Rama in the race of Bhrigu, and exterminate the Kshatriyas who will become proud of their strength and possessions.
Mbh.12.342.22540 Cursed by that foremost of Rishis, viz, Bhrigu, Agni was obliged to become a devourer of all things.
Mbh.12.342.22579 The daughter, named Uma, of the Himavat mountains, was desired by Rudra in marriage After Himavat had promised the hand of Uma to Mahadeva, the great Rishi Bhrigu, approaching Himavat, addressed him, saying, Give this daughter of thine unto me in marriage.
Mbh.12.342.22581 Angry at this reply, Bhrigu said, Since thou refusest my suit for the hand of thy daughter and insultest me thus, thou shalt no longer abound with jewels and gems.
Mbh.12.363.23889 The son of Bhrigu, O monarch, recited this history to king Janaka in his place.
Mbh.13.4.282 The illustrious son of Chyavana, celebrated by the name of Richika, of the race of Bhrigu, endued with austere penances, sought the hand of this lady.
Mbh.13.4.287 Gadhi said, O descendant of Bhrigu, do thou give me a thousand horses fleet as the wind, and possessing the hue of moon-beams, and each having one ear black'
Mbh.13.4.295 King Gadhi, filled with wonder and fearing to be cursed, gave his daughter, bedecked with jewels, unto that son of Bhrigu.
Mbh.13.4.317 And that great Rishi, the excellent descendant of Bhrigu, finding his wife quick with child, was pleased at heart, and addressing her, said, O excellent lady, thou hast not done well in exchanging the charu as will soon become apparent.
Mbh.13.14.1344 The Munis headed by the Self-born Manu and Rishis having Bhrigu for their first, and the deities with Sakra at their head, all came there.
Mbh.13.14.1513 Sanatkumara, the Vedas, the Histories, Marichi, Angiras, Atri, Pulastya, Pulaha, Kratu, the seven Manus, Soma, the Atharvans, and Vrihaspati, Bhrigu, Daksha, Kasyapa, Vasishtha, Kasya, the Schandas, Diksha, the Sacrifices, Dakshina, the Sacrificial Fires, the Havis clarified butter poured in sacrifices, and all the requisites of the sacrifices, were beheld by me, O Yudhishthira, standing there in their embodied forms.
Mbh.13.25.3438 By bathing, after a fast of three days and purifying the mind of all evil passions, in the large lake of Bhrigu Kunda, one becomes cleansed of even the sin of Brahmanicide.
Mbh.13.26.3509 Amongst them were Atri and Vasishtha and Bhrigu and Pulastya and Pulaha and Kratu.
Mbh.13.30.3869 After all his warriors and sons had fallen in battle, king Vitahavya fled away from his capital to the retreat of Bhrigu.
Mbh.13.30.3870 Indeed, arrived there, the royal fugitive sought the protection of Bhrigu.
Mbh.13.30.3871 The Rishi Bhrigu, O monarch, assured the defeated king of his protection.
Mbh.13.30.3874 Ho, listen ye disciples of the high souled Bhrigu that may happen to be present, I wish to see the sage.
Mbh.13.30.3876 Recognising that it was Pratarddana who had come, the Rishi Bhrigu himself came out of his retreat and worshipped that best of kings according to due rites.
Mbh.13.30.3885 Unto him that foremost of righteous men, viz, the Rishi Bhrigu, penetrated with compassion, replied by saying, There is no Kshatriya in this retreat.
Mbh.13.30.3887 Hearing these words of Bhrigu that must accord he thought with truth, Pratarddana touched the Rishi's feet slowly and, filled with delight, said, By this, O holy one, I am without doubt, crowned with success, since this king becomes abandoned by the very order of his birth in consequence of my prowess.
Mbh.13.30.3890 Dismissed by the Rishi Bhrigu, king Pratarddana then departed from that retreat, having even as a snake vomits forth its real poison and repaired to the place he had come from.
Mbh.13.30.3891 Meanwhile, king Vitahavya attained to the status of a Brahmana sage by virtue of the words only of Bhrigu.
Mbh.13.30.3910 It was even thus, O foremost of monarchs, that king Vitahavya, though a Kshatriya by the order of his birth, obtained the status of a Brahmana, O chief of Kshatriyas, through the grace of Bhrigu.
Mbh.13.50.5145 And as they dragged their net, O king, they easily dragged up Chyavana the son of Bhrigu along with a large number of fish.
Mbh.13.52.5322 On the expiration of one and twenty days, the son of Bhrigu rose of his own accord.
Mbh.13.52.5325 Proceeding a little way, the son of Bhrigu disappeared in the very sight of the royal couple making himself invisible by his Yoga-power.
Mbh.13.53.5334 There he saw the son of Bhrigu stretched as before on his bed.
Mbh.13.53.5347 Endued with high ascetic merit the son of Bhrigu did not once utter the word Sufficient'
Mbh.13.53.5391 O, let the son of Bhrigu issue his command!
Mbh.13.53.5415 The son of Bhrigu notwithstanding the misery he caused to Kusika and his queen, failed to mark any sign of dissatisfaction or agitation in them'
Mbh.13.53.5422 Indeed, the son of Bhrigu, in a soft, deep, and delighted voice, said, I am ready to give an excellent boon unto you both'
Mbh.13.54.5488 In that palace of gold endued with columns made of jewels and gems, lay the son of Bhrigu stretched on a costly and excellent bed.
Mbh.13.54.5512 After this, O monarch, the son of Bhrigu, without guile or insincerity of any kind, gratified the king with many soft words, and then said, O king, thou hast completely subjugated the five organs of action and the five organs of knowledge with the mind as their sixth.
Mbh.13.54.5521 Even this is the highest boon that has been obtained, O delighter of Bhrigu!
Mbh.13.54.5527 If, O learned Brahmana, thou hast been pleased with me, O delighter of Bhrigu, then do thou expound some doubts which are in my mind'
Mbh.13.55.5531 Kusika said, If thou hast been gratified by me, O holy one, do thou then, O son of Bhrigu, tell me thy object in residing in my palace for sometime, for I desire to hear it.
Mbh.13.55.5600 In what way, O delighter of Bhrigu, will the status of Brahmanahood attach to my race?
Mbh.13.56.5604 This is well-known, O king, that the Kshatriyas should always have the assistance of the sons of Bhrigu in the matter of sacrifices.
Mbh.13.56.5606 The Kshatriyas, O king, will slay the descendants of Bhrigu.
Mbh.13.56.5607 Afflicted by an ordinance of fate, they will exterminate the race of Bhrigu, not sparing even infants in their mothers' wombs.
Mbh.13.56.5623 In the matter of this exchange of sons, viz, a Kshatriya son in the race of Bhrigu and a Brahamana son in thy race the cause will be two women.
Mbh.13.66.6288 Then there came to that place Agastya and Kanwa and Bhrigu and Atri and Vrishakapi, and Asita and Devala.
Mbh.13.85.7656 Incensed with wrath, Agni cursed all the elephants, O descendant of Bhrigu saying, Your tongues will be bent back'
Mbh.13.85.7785 One arose first from the flames of the fire called Bhrig and hence he came to be called by the name of Bhrigu.
Mbh.13.85.7788 It has been already said that the first came out with flames emanating from his body and hence he was called Bhrigu.
Mbh.13.85.7828 At these words, although born of Brahman, the puissant Mahadeva in the form of Varuna, the ruler of all aquatic creatures received the firstborn one, viz, Bhrigu endued with the effulgence of the sun as his own child.
Mbh.13.85.7831 Engaged in procreating creatures for peopling the earth, Bhrigu who is regarded as a Prajapati thence came to be called as Varuna's offspring.
Mbh.13.85.7833 Bhrigu and Angiras who had sprung from the flame and the charcoals of Agni respectively, became the procreators of extensive races and tribes in the world.
Mbh.13.85.7834 Verily, these three, viz, Bhrigu and Angiras and Kavi, regarded as Prajapati, are the progenitors of many races and tribes.
Mbh.13.85.7837 Bhrigu begot seven sorts all of whom became equal to him in merits and accomplishments.
Mbh.13.85.7840 They are children of Bhrigu and are hence Bhargavas.
Mbh.13.85.7841 They are also called Varunas in consequence of their ancestor Bhrigu having been adopted by Mahadeva in the form of Varuna.
Mbh.13.85.7842 Thou belongest to the race of Bhrigu.
Mbh.13.85.7851 The names of the eight sons of Kavi are Kavi, Kavya, Dhrishnu, Usanas endued with great intelligence, Bhrigu, Viraja, Kasi, and Ugra conversant with every duty.
Mbh.13.85.7855 Thus, O chief of Bhrigu's race, hath the whole world been peopled with the progeny of Angiras, and Kavi and Bhrigu.
Mbh.13.85.7860 The Grandsire Brahman was, in olden days, gratified by all the deities who said unto him, Let these lords of the universe referring to Bhrigu and Angiras and Kavi and their descendants rescue us all.
Mbh.13.91.8134 During the time when the world was peopled by only the descendants of Bhrigu and Angiras; who was the muni that established the Sraddha?
Mbh.13.94.8550 There were Sakra and Angiras and Kavi of great learning and Agastya and Narada and Pravata; and Bhrigu and Vasishtha and Kasyapa and Gautama and Viswamitra and Jamadagni, O king!
Mbh.13.94.8574 Bhrigu said, Let him who has stolen thy stalks censure when censured, assail when assailed, and eat the flesh that is attached to the back-bone of animals slaughtered in sacrifice
Mbh.13.95.8698 O son of Bhrigu, the rites of nativity, religious observances of every kind, investiture with the sacred thread, gifts of kine, weddings, all articles in view of sacrifices, the rules for the governance of men, gifts, all sorts of union between man and man, and the acquisition of wealth, have their origin in food!
Mbh.13.96.8722 Bhishma continued, So saying, that excellent descendant of Bhrigu remained silent for a while, and Surya forthwith made over to him an umbrella and a pair of sandals
Mbh.13.98.8790 The chief of the Asuras, that giver of sacrificial presents in abundance, having worshipped the descendant of Bhrigu with the Arghya and offering him a seat, sat down after his guest had seated himself.
Mbh.13.99.8903 Bhishma said, In this connection is recited the old narrative of the discourse between Nahusha and Agastya and Bhrigu.
Mbh.13.99.8918 At that time, Bhrigu, that foremost of all persons conversant with Brahma, repaired to the presence of Agastya while the latter was seated in his asylum, and addressing him, said, O great ascetic, why should we patiently put up with such indignity inflicted on us by this wicked-souled Nahusha who has become the chief of the deities'
Mbh.13.99.8929 Bhrigu said, It is at the command of the Grandsire that I have come to thee with the view of counteracting the puissance of Nahusha who is possessed of great energy but who has been stupefied by fate.
Mbh.13.99.8938 Thus addressed by Bhrigu, Mitravaruna's son Agastya of unfading puissance and glory, became highly gratified and freed from every anxiety
Mbh.13.100.8943 Bhishma said, Even thus did those two Rishis, viz, Bhrigu and Agastya, converse with each other.
Mbh.13.100.8964 At this time, Bhrigu, endued with great energy, addressed the son of Mitravaruna, saying, Do thou close thy eyes till I enter into the matted locks on thy head'
Mbh.13.100.8965 Having said this, Bhrigu of unfading glory and mighty energy entered into the matted locks of Agastya who stood still like a wooden post for hurling king Nahusha from the throne of Heaven.
Mbh.13.100.8971 Bhrigu, who was staying within the matted locks of Agastya, became highly pleased at this act of Nahusha.
Mbh.13.100.8973 Fully acquainted with the energy which the illustrious Nahusha had acquired in consequence of the boon which Brahman had granted him, Bhrigu conducted himself in this way.
Mbh.13.100.8978 When the Rishi was thus struck on the head, Bhrigu, who was staying within Agastya's matted locks, became incensed and cursed Nahusha of sinful soul, saying, Since thou hast struck with thy foot on the head of this great Rishi, do thou, therefore, fall down on the earth, transformed into a snake, O wretch of wicked understanding'
Mbh.13.100.8979 Thus cursed by Bhrigu who had not been seen.
Mbh.13.100.8981 If O monarch, Nahusha had seen Bhrigu, the latter would not then have succeeded, by his energy, in hurling the former down on the earth.
Mbh.13.100.8983 He then began to propitiate Bhrigu with a view to the working out of the course.
Mbh.13.100.8984 Agastya also, filled with compassion, joined Nahusha in pacifying Bhrigu for bringing about an end of the course.
Mbh.13.100.8985 At last Bhrigu felt compassion for Nahusha and provided' for the working out of the course'
Mbh.13.100.8986 Bhrigu said, There will appear a king on earth of the name of Yudhishthira, the foremost of his race.
Mbh.13.100.8992 As regards Bhrigu, having hurled Nahusha on the earth, he went to the region of Brahman and informed the Grandsire of it.
Mbh.13.103.9244 Sukra, the descendant of Bhrigu, obtained a knowledge of it by means of spiritual sight acquired through penances.
Mbh.13.106.9721 Chyavana and Jamadagni and Vasishtha and Gautama and Bhrigu, all these great Rishis endued with the virtue of forgiveness, have attained to heaven through observance of fasts.
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.13.150.12699 By reciting the name of Bhrigu one's righteousness becomes enhanced.
Mbh.13.157.13098 There is danger to thee from the race of Bhrigu!
Mbh.13.165.13699 They are Yavakrita and Raibhya and Kakshivat and Aushija, and Bhrigu and Angiras and Kanwa, and the puissant Medhatithi, and Varhi possessed of every accomplishment.
Mbh.14.55.2482 If that son of Bhrigu accepts it thus, I then go to him, O lord, for giving it unto him.
