Mbh.3.123.6294 Having obtained coveted beauty and also his wife, Chyavana, of exceeding energy, well pleased, spake these words unto the nose-born celestials: Since at your hands, an old man, I have obtained youth, and beauty, and also this wife of mine, I will, well pleased, make you quaffers of the Soma juice in the presence of the lord of celestials himself.
Mbh.3.123.6296 Hearing this, highly delighted, the twins ascendedto heaven; and Chyavana and Sukanya too passed their days happily even like celestials
Mbh.3.124.6297 SECTION CXXIV Lomasa said, Now the news came to Saryati that Chyavana had been turned into a youth.
Mbh.3.124.6299 And he saw Chyavana and Sukanya, like two children sprung from celestials, and his joy and that of his wife were as great as if the king had conquered the entire world.

Mbh.3.124.6307 Chyavana took up a quantity of the Soma juice, in order that he might offer the same to the Aswins, who were physicians to the celestials.
Mbh.3.124.6310 Thereupon Chyavana said, These two are of mighty enterprise, possessed of mighty souls, and uncommonly endued with beauty and grace.
Mbh.3.124.6323 And having paralysed his arm, Chyavana recited sacred hymns, and made offering on the fire.
Mbh.3.125.6338 Then the lord of the celestials, tortured with fright, spake to Chyavana saying, O Bhrigu's son!

Mbh.3.219.11124 And when the invocation was made with the vyahriti hymns and with the aid of the five sacred fires, Kasyapa, Vasistha, Prana, the son of Prana, Chyavana, the son of Angiras, and Suvarchaka, there arose a very bright energy force full of the animating creative principle, and of five different colours.

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.5.189.8501 Proceeding next one after another to the asylum, O king, of Narada, and to the auspicious asylum of Uluka and to that of Chyavana, and to the spot sacred to Brahmana, and to Prayaga the sacrificial platform of the gods, and to that forest sacred to the gods, and to Bhogawati, and, O monarch, to the asylum of Kusika's son Viswamitra, and to the asylum of Mandavya, and also to the asylum of Dwilipa, and to Ramhrada, and, O Kaurava, to the asylum of Garga, the princess of Kasi, O king, performed ablutions in the sacred waters of all these, observing all the while the most difficult of vows.
Mbh.12.37.1980 Having practised rigid vows, that mighty-armed one acquired a knowledge of all the Vedas and their branches, from Vasishtha and from Chyavana of Bhrigu's race.
Mbh.12.47.2294 Surrounded by Vyasa conversant with the Vedas by the celestial Rishi Narada, by Devasthana, by Asmaka Sumantu, by Jaimini, by the high-souled Paila, by Sandilya, by Devarata, by Maitreya of great intelligence, by Asita and Vasishtha and the high-souled Kausika, by Harita and Lomasa and Atri's son of great intelligence, by Vrihaspati and Sukra and the great sage Chyavana, by Sanatkumara and Kapila and Valmiki and Tumvuru and Kuru, by Maudgalya and Rama of Bhrigu's race, and the great sage Trinavindu, by Pippalada and Vayu and Samvarta and Pulaha and Katha, by Kasyapa and Pulastya and Kratu and Daksha and Parasara, by Marichi and Angiras and Kasmya and Gautama and the sage Galava, by Dhaumya and Vibhanda and Mandavya and Dhaumra and Krishnanubhautika, by Uluka, that foremost of Brahmanas and the great sage Markandeya, by Bhaskari and Purana and Krishna and Suta, that foremost of virtuous persons, surrounded by these and many other highly-blessed sages of great souls and possessed of faith and self-restraint and tranquillity of mind, the Kuru hero looked like the Moon in the midst of the planets and the stars.
Mbh.12.342.22400 When in the sacrifice of king Sarjiati, the great Rishi Chyavana became desirous of making the twin Aswins sharers of the sacrificial offerings, Indra objected.
Mbh.12.342.22401 Upon Chyavana insisting, Indra sought to hurl his thunderbolt at him.
Mbh.12.363.23887 Bhishma said, Having saluted that foremost of Nagas in this way, the Brahmana named Dharmaranya, firmly resolved to follow the Unccha mode of life, proceeded to the presence, O king, of Chyavana of Bhrigu's race, from desire of being formally instructed and initiated in that vow
Mbh.12.363.23888 Chyavana performed the Samskara rites of the Brahmana and formally initiated him into the Unccha mode of life.
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.13.4.288 Bhishma said, Then that mighty son of Chyavana who was the foremost of Bhrigu's race, besought the deity Varuna, the son of Aditi, who was the lord of all the waters,
Mbh.13.26.3511 There were also Vrihaspati and Usanas, and Vyasa and Chyavana and Kasyapa and Dhruva, and Durvasas and Jamadagni and Markandeya and Galava, and Bharadwaja and Raibhya and Yavakrita and Trita.
Mbh.13.50.5121 Bhishma said, I shall, in this connection, O thou of great effulgence, recite to thee an ancient narrative of a conversation between Nahusha and the Rishi Chyavana.
Mbh.13.50.5122 In days of yore O Chief of Bharata's race, the great Rishi Chyavana of Bhrigu's race, always observant of high vows, became desirous of leading for some time the mode of life called Udavasa and set himself to commence it.
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.13.51.5162 SECTION LI Bhishma said, King Nahusha hearing the pass to which Chyavana was reduced, quickly proceeded to that spot accompanied by his ministers and priest.
Mbh.13.51.5163 Having cleansed himself duly, the king, with joined palms and concentrated attention, introduced himself unto the high-souled Chyavana.
Mbh.13.51.5167 Chyavana said, These men that live by catching fish have all been tried with labour.
Mbh.13.51.5170 Chyavana said, A thousand coins cannot represent my price.
Mbh.13.51.5175 Chyavana said, I should not be purchased for a hundred thousand coins, O best of monarchs!
Mbh.13.51.5180 Chyavana said, O king, I do not deserve to be purchased for a crore of coins or even more.
Mbh.13.51.5186 Chyavana said, I do not deserve to be purchased with half thy kingdom or even the whole of it, O king!
Mbh.13.51.5199 If the holy Chyavana became angry, he would destroy the three worlds: what need I say them of my poor self who is destitute of penances and who depends only upon the might of his arm?
Mbh.13.51.5207 Proceeding then to the presence of Bhrigu's son, Chyavana, of rigid vows, h e addressed him thus, O monarch, for gratifying him to the best of his ability'
Mbh.13.51.5211 Chyavana said.
Mbh.13.51.5243 Chyavana said, The eye of a person that is poor or that has fallen into distress, the eye of an ascetic, or the eye of a snake of virulent poison, consumes a man with his very roots, even as a fire that, blazing up with the assistance of the wind, consumes a stack of dry grass or straw.
Mbh.13.51.5248 After this, the two Rishis, viz, the one born of a cow and the other who was Chyavana of Bhrigu's race, gladdened king Nahusha by granting him many boons.
Mbh.13.51.5252 As regards Chyavana, his vow having been completed, he returned to his own asylum.
Mbh.13.52.5273 Bhishma said, In this connection is cited an old history of the discourse between Chyavana and Kusika, O Bharata!
Mbh.13.52.5274 Endued with great intelligence, Chyavana of Bhrigu's race, that best of ascetics beheld with his spiritual eye the stain that would affect his own race in consequence of some descendant of his becoming wedded to Kshatriya practice.
Mbh.13.52.5275 Reflecting upon the merits and faults of that incident, as also its strength and weakness, Chyavana endued with wealth of asceticism became desirous of consuming the race of the Kusikas for it was from that race that the stain of Kshatriya practices would, he knew, affect his own race.
Mbh.13.52.5276 Repairing then to the presence of king Kusika, Chyavana said unto him, O sinless one, the desire has arisen in my heart of dwelling with thee for some time'
Mbh.13.52.5281 Bhishma continued, Ordering a seat to be placed for the great ascetic Chyavana, king Kusika, accompanied by his wife, stood in the presence of the ascetic.
Mbh.13.52.5292 Addressed in these words by the king, Chyavana of Bhrigu's race, filled with great delight, said unto Kusika these words in reply'
Mbh.13.52.5293 Chyavana said, I do not, O king, covet thy kingdom, nor thy wealth, nor the damsels thou hast, nor thy kine, nor thy provinces, nor articles needed for sacrifice.
Mbh.13.52.5311 Having finished his meals, the holy Chyavana, conversant with every duty, addressed the king and the queen, saying, I desire to slumber.
Mbh.13.53.5332 He thought only of that conduct of Chyavana.
Mbh.13.53.5368 All this food, brought from the kitchen, was placed before Chyavana.
Mbh.13.53.5371 Soon, however, Chyavana of Bhrigu's race set fire to all the things and reduced them to ashes.
Mbh.13.53.5376 Indeed, Chyavana failed to notice any fault in the conduct of the king.
Mbh.13.53.5378 Without the least scruple, the king answered Chyavana endued with wealth of asceticism, saying, So be it'
Mbh.13.53.5427 Delighted with their conduct, the illustrious Chyavana said unto them, I have never before spoken an untruth.
Mbh.13.53.5448 Thus addressed by the king, Chyavana said unto him, Thou shalt, with thy spouse, return hither tomorrow, O monarch'
Mbh.13.54.5490 Chyavana, however, quickly disappeared at this, with the bed itself upon which he lay.
Mbh.13.54.5501 Behold, the puissance of the high-souled and celestial Rishi Chyavana derived from his penances.
Mbh.13.54.5504 Who else than Chyavana could do all this?
Mbh.13.54.5508 These reflections that passed through the king's brain became known to Chyavana.
Mbh.13.55.5528 SECTION LV Chyavana said, Do thou accept a boon from me.
Mbh.13.55.5547 Chyavana said, Listen to me as I tell thee in detail the reasons which had impelled me in all these acts of mine.
Mbh.13.56.5603 SECTION LVI Chyavana said, I should certainly, O chief of men, tell you everything about the circumstance for which, O monarch, I came hither for exterminating thy race.
Mbh.13.56.5628 Bhishma continued, Hearing these words of the high-souled ascetic Chyavana, king Kusika became filled with joy, and made answer in the following words, Indeed, O best of the Bharatas, he said, So be it'
Mbh.13.56.5629 Endued with high energy, Chyavana once more addressed the king, and urged him to accept a boon from himself.
Mbh.13.56.5633 The ascetic Chyavana, thus solicited, granted the king's prayer, and bidding farewell to the monarch, set out on his intended tour to the sacred waters.
Mbh.13.56.5635 Indeed, O king, everything fell out as the Rishi Chyavana had said.
Mbh.13.56.5636 The birth of Rama of Bhrigu's race and of Viswamitra of Kusika's race happened in the way that Chyavana had indicated
Mbh.13.85.7838 Their names are Chyavana, Vajrasirsha, Suchi, Urva, Sukra, that giver of boons, Vibhu, and Savana.
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.13.156.12999 The god of wind once more spake unto him, Hear, O king, the feat achieved by the high-souled Chyavana in days of old.
Mbh.13.156.13000 Having passed his promise to the twin Aswins, Chyavana addressed the chastiser of Paka, saying, Do thou make the Aswins drinkers of Soma with all other deities'
Mbh.13.156.13007 Chyavana said, The twin Aswins shall drink Soma with all of you!
Mbh.13.156.13015 Chyavana said, If, O slayer of Vala, thou wilt not obey my words, thou shalt, this very day, drink Soma with them in sacrifice, compelled by me!
Mbh.13.156.13016 The god of wind said, Then Chyavana, taking the Aswins with him, commenced a great religious rite for their benefit.
Mbh.13.156.13017 The gods all became stupefied by Chyavana with his Mantras.
Mbh.13.156.13018 Beholding that feat commenced by Chyavana, Indra became incensed with wrath.
Mbh.13.156.13021 Then the illustrious Chyavana, endued with penances, cast an angry glance upon Indra as he advanced.
Mbh.13.156.13032 Then Sakra, bowing down his head unto Chyavana, obeyed his behest.
Mbh.13.156.13033 Even thus did Chyavana make the Aswins drinkers of Soma with the other gods.
Mbh.13.156.13038 Thus, O king, I have narrated to thee the feat achieved by Chyavana.
Mbh.13.156.13041 Is there a Kshatriya that is higher than the Brahmana Chyavana
Mbh.13.157.13043 At this, the god of wind once more addressed him, saying, When the denizens of heaven, with Indra at their head, found themselves within the mouth of the Asura Mada, at that time Chyavana took away from them the earth.
Mbh.13.157.13046 The gods said, O thou that art adored by all creatures of the universe, the earth has been taken away from us by Chyavana, while we have been deprived of heaven by the Kapas, O puissant one'
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.14.9.270 Agni said, Dost thou, O Mahendra, remember that in olden times when the sage Chyavana officiated at the sacrifice of Saryati with the twin gods Aswins and himself appropriated the Soma offering alone, thou wert filled with wrath, and when bent upon preventing Saryati's sacrifice, thou didst violently strike Chyavana with thy thunderbolt?
