MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.18.1396 The Danavas and the Daityas charmed with her exquisite beauty and grace lost their reason and unanimously placed the Amrita in the hands of that fair damsel
Mbh.1.19.1398 SECTION XIX Astika Parva continued Sauti said, Then the Daityas and the Danauas equipped with first-class armours and various weapons attacked the gods.
Mbh.1.19.1425 And that discus blazing like the fire that consumeth all things at the end of Yuga, hurled with force from the hands of Narayana, and falling constantly everywhere, destroyed the Daityas and the Danavas by thousands.
Mbh.1.23.1501 He is the mighty son of Kasyapa, the destroyer of the Nagas, engaged in the well-being of the gods, and the foe of the Daityas and the Rakshasas.
Mbh.1.64.3225 And the sons of Diti Daityas being repeatedly defeated in war by the sons of Aditi celestials and deprived also of sovereignty and heaven, began to be incarnated on the earth.
Mbh.1.66.3376 And the learned Sukra, of great intelligence and wisdom, of rigid vows, leading the life of a Brahmacharin, divided himself in twain by power of asceticism, and became the spiritual guide of both the Daityas and the gods.
Mbh.1.123.6641 This thy son of mighty arms will also slay, at the command of Indra, those Daityas called the Nivatakavachas who are the enemies of the gods.
Mbh.1.188.9431 And there came also the Daityas and the Suparnas, the great Nagas and the celestial Rishis, the Guhyakas and the Charanas and Viswavasu and Narada and Parvata, and the principal Gandharvas with Apsaras.
Mbh.1.210.10323 And those Daityas were both of the same resolution, and ever engaged in achieving the same tasks and ends.
Mbh.1.210.10353 It is for this, O mighty Daityas, that I cannot grant you what you desire'
Mbh.1.210.10357 Then the brothers, those mighty Daityas, having received those several boons became incapable of being slain by anybody in the universe.
Mbh.1.210.10359 All their friends and relatives, beholding those Daityas of great intelligence, crowned with success in the matter of the boons they had obtained, became exceedingly glad.
Mbh.1.210.10365 And here and there arose loud uproars of hilarity mixed with clappings of hands which filled the whole city of the Daityas, who being capable of assuming any form at will, were engaged in every kind of amusement and sport and scarcely noticed the flight of time, even regarding a whole year as a single day
Mbh.1.226.11087 With this weapon, without doubt, thou shalt be superior in battle to men and gods, and Rakshasas and Pisachas, and Daityas and Nagas.
Mbh.2.9.375 And, O king, Vali the son of Virochana, and Naraka the subjugator of the whole Earth; Sanghraha and Viprachitti, and those Danavas called Kalakanja; and Suhanu and Durmukha and Sankha and Sumanas and also Sumati; and Ghatodara, and Mahaparswa, and Karthana and also Pithara and Viswarupa, Swarupa and Virupa, Mahasiras; and Dasagriva, Vali, and Meghavasas and Dasavara; Tittiva, and Vitabhuta, and Sanghrada, and Indratapana, these Daityas and Danavas, all bedecked with ear-rings and floral wreaths and crowns, and attired in the celestial robes, all blessed with boons and possessed of great bravery, and enjoying immortality, and all well of conduct and of excellent vows, wait upon and worship in that mansion the illustrious Varuna, the deity bearing the noose as his weapon.
Mbh.2.11.453 And, O king of men, the Grandsire of all created beings, the Soul of the universe, the Self create Brahma of immeasurable intelligence and glory, equally kind unto all creatures, honoureth as they deserve, and gratifieth with sweet speech and gift of wealth and other enjoyable articles, the gods, the Daityas, the Nagas, the Brahmanas, the Yakshas, the Birds, the Kaleyas, the Gandharvas, the Apsaras, and all other exalted beings that came to him as his guests.
Mbh.2.12.459 And, O master, almost all the Nagas, and principal Daityas, and rivers, and oceans, are to be found in the Sabha of Varuna.
Mbh.2.66.2889 There was of old a chief of the Daityas of the name Prahlada.
Mbh.3.12.613 Thou hadst slain all the Daityas and Danavas mustered in battle, and giving the lord of Sachi Indra the sovereignty of the universe, thou hast, O Kesava of mighty arms, taken thy birth among men!
Mbh.3.41.2182 And accompanied by Rivers both male and female, and Nagas, and Daityas and Sadhyas and inferior deities, Varuna, the controller and lord of all aquatic creatures, arrived at that spot.
Mbh.3.41.2210 With these, O hero, in the battle that ensued of your on account of Taraka the wife of Vrihaspati, thousands of mighty Daityas were seized and tied.
Mbh.3.41.2219 O thou of mighty arms, thou wilt defeat even invincible Daityas and Danavas.
Mbh.3.56.2801 And what woman would not choose as her lord the virtuous and high-souled Mahendra, the lord of the celestials, the chastiser of Daityas and Danavas?
Mbh.3.82.3986 It was there, O king, that the gods, the Daityas and Brahmarshis, having performed ascetic devotions there, obtained great merit and finally attained to god-hood
Mbh.3.82.4049 O thou of great intelligence, Vishnu the creator of the universe, after slaying the Daityas and Danavas, went thither to purify himself.
Mbh.3.82.4074 The Rishis, the Pitris, the gods, the Gandharvas, several tribes of Apsaras, the Guhyakas, the Kinnaras, the Yakshas, the Siddhas, the Vidhyadharas, the Rakshasas, Daityas, Rudras, and Brahma himself, O king, having with subdued senses, accepted a course of austerities for a thousand years in order to move Vishnu to grace, cooked rice in milk and butter and gratified Kesava with oblations, each offered with seven Riks.
Mbh.3.94.4999 O king, I have seen many Daityas and Danavas prosper by sin but I have also seen destruction overtake them.
Mbh.3.94.5009 And when the Daityas and the Danavas, deprived of sense by pride, were possessed by adversity.
Mbh.3.94.5012 And covered with infamy, the Daityas were soon exterminated.
Mbh.3.94.5019 The sons of Dhritarashtra, on the other hand, enslaved by sinfulness and ignorance, will, without doubt, be soon exterminated like the Daityas
Mbh.3.101.5295 And struck with Indra's Vajra the great Asura decked in gold and garlands fell head-long, like the great mountain Mandara hurled of yore from Vishnu's hands; and although the prince of Daityas was slain, yet Sakra in panic ran from the field, desiring to take shelter in a lake, thinking that the Vajra itself had not been hurled from his hands and regarding that Vritra himself was still alive.
Mbh.3.102.5308 And during the darkness of the night those angry Daityas began to devour the Munis they found in woody retreats and sacred spots.
Mbh.3.141.7193 Thereupon Vishnu said, I know, O Sakra, that thy fear proceedeth from Naraka, that lord of the Daityas.
Mbh.3.153.7772 Having thus by the exercise of his prowess defeated those hosts, even as Sakra had defeated the armies of Daityas and Danavas, he Bhima, now that he had conquered the enemy, plunged into the lake and began to gather the lotuses, with the object of gaining his purpose.
Mbh.3.167.8478 And mounted on this car also Maghavan, had conquered in battle many thousands and millions and hundreds of millions of Daityas.
Mbh.3.170.8541 And on account of the pouring of the shower, and of the blowing of the wind, and of roaring of the Daityas, nothing could be perceived.
Mbh.3.171.8575 SECTION CLXXI Arjuna continued, Remaining invisible the Daityas began to fight with the help of illusion.
Mbh.3.171.8579 And when the Daityas had fled, and when all had become visible, I there discovered hundreds and thousands of the slain.
Mbh.3.171.8601 At length, the panic-stricken wives of the Daityas entered into their respective golden places variegated with innumerable jewels.
Mbh.3.172.8621 And, O king, on seeing this wonderful city of the Daityas, I asked Matali saying, What is this that looketh so wonderful'
Mbh.3.172.8642 Thereupon, O son of the Kurus, covering the way of the Daityas, with a mighty discharge of shafts I obstructed their course.
Mbh.3.172.8643 Then by virtue of the bestowal of the boon, the Daityas supported themselves easily on that sky-ranging unearthly aerial city, going anywhere at will and like unto the sun.
Mbh.3.187.9416 O tiger among men, having entered his stomach, as I wandered around, I also beheld the whole tribe of the gods with their chief Sakra, the Sadhyas, the Rudras, the Adityas, the Guhyakas, the Pitris, the Snakes and the Nagas, the feathery tribes, the Vasus, the Aswins, the Gandharvas, the Apsaras, the Yakshas, the Rishis, the hordes of the Daityas and the Danavas, and the Nagas also.
Mbh.3.188.9475 And, O Muni, when fierce and malicious Daityas and Rakshasas that are incapable of being slain by even the foremost of the gods, are born on earth, I then take my birth in the families of virtuous men, and assuming human body restore tranquillity by exterminating all evils.
Mbh.3.201.10372 And, O king, having, obtained a boon from the Grandsire of all creatures, that Asura hath become incapable of being slain by the gods and Daityas and Rakshasas and Gandharvas.
Mbh.3.223.11274 The lady replied, That manly and famous and powerful being devoted to Brahma, who is able to conquer all the celestials, Asuras, Yakshas, Kinnaras, Uragas, Rakshasas, and the evil-minded Daityas and to subdue all the worlds with thee, shall be my husband'
Mbh.3.229.11543 Diti, the mother of the Daityas Asuras, is also called Muhkamandika, and that terrible creature is very fond of the flesh of little children.
Mbh.3.230.11654 And the arrows which they angrily discharged against the enemy drew a large quantity of blood from the bodies of the Daityas and of their horses and elephants.
Mbh.3.230.11656 And, O king, the Daityas pierced by those arrows fell fast on all sides, looking like so many detached masses of clouds.
Mbh.3.230.11671 And Daityas of huge proportions, looking like dark clouds, were boisterous with joy, thinking that victory was assured to them.
Mbh.3.230.11673 And the fiery Mahisha, contemplating with satisfaction the prize the chariot of Rudra which he had secured, sounded his war-cry, to the great alarm of the gods and the joy of the Daityas.
Mbh.3.249.12327 Meanwhile the fierce Daityas and the Danavas who had been defeated of old by the celestials and had been dwelling in the nether regions having ascertained Duryodhana's purpose and knowing that if the king died their party would be weakened, commenced a sacrifice with fire for summoning Duryodhana to their presence.
Mbh.3.249.12331 And the Daityas with well-pleased hearts, commanded her, saying, Bring thou hither the royal son of Dhritarashtra, who is even now observing the vow of starvation for getting rid of his life'
Mbh.3.250.12358 And, O king, many Daityas and Rakshasas also that have been born in the Kshatriya order, will fight with great prowess in the battle with thy foes, using maces and clubs and lances and various weapons of a superior kind.
Mbh.3.250.12364 We also have for that reason appointed hundreds upon hundreds and thousands upon thousands of Daityas and Rakshasas, viz, those that are known by the name of Samsaptakas
Mbh.3.250.12373 Vaisampayana continued, Having addressed him thus, those Daityas embraced that elephant among kings, and those bulls among the Danavas cheered that irrepressible one like a son.
Mbh.3.250.12395 Thus addressed by Karna, and remembering the words of the Daityas and supplications made by them his brothers, Suyodhana rose up.
Mbh.3.250.12396 And having heard those words of the Daityas that tiger among men, with a firm resolve in his heart arrayed his army, abounding in horses and elephants and cars and infantry.
Mbh.3.268.13039 Thou, foolish man, shall witness today his performances on the field of battle, like unto those of Indra amid the ranks of Daityas!
Mbh.3.270.13187 At another time, the mighty Lord, assuming a wonderful form with a body half lion, half man, and squeezing his hands, repaired to the court of the ruler of the Daityas.
Mbh.3.270.13188 That progenitor of the Daityas, the son of Diti, who was the enemy of the gods, beholding the Lord's peculiar form, burst out into passion and his eyes became inflamed with rage.
Mbh.3.273.13311 And Ravana, capable of assuming any form at will and terrible in prowess, and capable also of passing through the air, attacked the gods and the Daityas and wrested from them all their valuable possessions.
Mbh.3.288.14055 It is on this excellent car, O tiger among men, that Indra hath slain in battle hundreds of Daityas and Danavas!
Mbh.3.313.15568 Before taking his birth in the womb of Aditi, Vishnu for the purpose of destroying the Daityas passed a long time unrecognised, assuming the form of the Haya-griba Horse-necked.
Mbh.4.58.2279 And a voice was heard in the sky applauding Drona, and saying, Difficult is the feat performed by Drona, inasmuch as he fighteth with Arjuna, that grinder of foes, that warrior endued with mighty energy, of firm grasp, and invincible in battle, that conqueror of both celestials and Daityas, that foremost of all car-warriors'
Mbh.5.14.618 Discover thyself, O slayer of Daityas and Danavas.
Mbh.5.35.1689 Beholding that chief of the Daityas, Kesini addressed him, saying, Are Brahmanas superior, O Virochana, or are the sons of Diti superior?
Mbh.5.49.2804 And then it was with their aid that Sakra subsequently vanquished the Daityas and the Danavas.
Mbh.5.49.2809 And Narayana also hath, in this world, destroyed in the same way numberless other Daityas and Danavas.
Mbh.5.97.4629 Kanwa continued, And it so happened that amongst the gods, the Daityas and Gandharvas, men and numerous Rishis, none was regarded by Matali as an eligible husband for his daughter.
Mbh.5.98.4655 These blazing weapons also of every kind that thou seest, belonged, O Matali, to the Daityas who have been deprived of their sovereignty.
Mbh.5.98.4658 Here dwelt in days of yore many tribes of Rakshasas and Daityas, possessed of many kinds of celestial weapons, but they were all vanquished by the gods.
Mbh.5.99.4674 Celebrated over all the universe, it is worshipped by the Daityas and the Danavas.
Mbh.5.100.4699 SECTION C Narada continued, Here is that spacious and celebrated city of cities, called Hiranyapura, belonging to the Daityas and Danavas, possessing a hundred diverse kinds of illusion.
Mbh.5.100.4715 Behold these retreats of the Daityas for recreation and sport, these beds of theirs for sleep, these costly utensils of theirs set with precious stones, and these seats also for their use.
Mbh.5.105.4856 In the war with the Daityas I also achieved grand feats.
Mbh.5.110.5045 It was in the quarter, O Brahmana, that the Daityas were routed and bound fast by the wind-god.
Mbh.5.128.5678 Indeed, O Bharata, when the population of the worlds was divided into two parties and was about to be slaughtered, the divine and holy Cause of the universe, viz, the Creator, said, The Asuras and the Daityas with the Danavas will be vanquished, and the Adityas, the Vasus, the Rudras and other dwellers of heaven will be victorious.
Mbh.5.128.5680 Thinking so, the Lord of all creatures, Parameshthin, commanded Dharma, saying, Binding fast, the Daityas and the Danavas, make them over to Varuna'
Mbh.5.128.5681 Thus addressed, Dharma, at the command of Parameshthin, binding the Daityas and the Danavas, made them over to Varuna.
Mbh.6.6.342 Upon the summit of that mountain, Usanas, otherwise called the Poet, sporteth with the Daityas his disciples
Mbh.6.34.1604 I am Prahlada among the Daityas, and Time among things that count.
Mbh.6.59.3160 In a single day Bhishma can slaughter all the Daityas and the Danavas.
Mbh.6.66.3630 Those Daityas and Rakshasas, of fierce form and great strength, that were slain in battle, have been born among men.
Mbh.6.81.4244 For thy sake I would consume all the worlds with the celestials and the Daityas, let alone thy foes here.
Mbh.6.84.4423 Beholding his dart cut off, the son of Hidimva fled from fear like Namuchi, that foremost of the Daityas, in days of old, from battle with Indra.
Mbh.6.86.4521 Pierced with arrows by Kripa and Sala and Chitrasena, O lord, the Pandavas, inflamed with rage, resembled the gods pierced with arrows by the united Daityas in days of old.
Mbh.6.108.5800 Arjuna can slay in battle the very gods exerting themselves actively, along with the Daityas and the Danavas.
Mbh.7.71.3131 If he enters the abode of the nether region, or ascends the firmament, or repairs to the celestials, or the realms of the Daityas, I shall still, with a hundred arrows, assuredly cut off, on the expiration of this night, the head of Abhimanyu's foe,
Mbh.7.77.3375 That matchless hero, the Thousand-eyed Indra himself, that crusher of the pride of Daityas and Danavas cannot venture to slay him in battle who is protected by Drona.
Mbh.7.78.3427 With it the god Maheswara slew in battle all the Daityas!
Mbh.7.119.5864 Deprived of life, those princes there, O king of great splendour, fell down from their cars on the earth, like the slain Daityas and Danavas in the battle between the gods and the Asuras in days of old.
Mbh.7.145.7632 This fame-enhancing and mighty feat on the field of battle is capable of being achieved by thee only, O puissant one, or by that chief of the gods, viz, Indra himself, who in great battle slayeth the Daityas and the Danavas'
Mbh.7.146.7652 Having slain thousands of Daityas, with prowess having its origin in thy grace, O slayer of foes, Sakra obtained the lordship of the celestials.
Mbh.7.152.7983 Then those scorchers of foes, viz, the two brothers, riding oh the same car, both rushed against Bhima in the front rank of battle, like the Regent of the waters and Surya rushing against Taraka, that foremost of Daityas.
Mbh.7.155.8347 It is true also that the Parthas are incapable of being vanquished by the very gods with Vasava at their head, and the Daityas, the Yakshas, and the Rakshasas.
Mbh.7.156.8416 Shaking their hundreds and thousands of bows they fought with Radha's son, like the Daityas of old fighting with Sakra.
Mbh.7.157.8501 SECTION CLIX Sanjaya said, Thus addressed by Duryodhana, Drona's son, that warrior difficult of defeat in battle, set his heart upon destroying the foe, like Indra bent upon destroying the Daityas.
Mbh.7.183.10026 Yakshas, and Nagas, and Daityas, and all others proud of their might, were slain by that foremost of men.
Mbh.7.191.10581 Covered with dust, trembling with fear, casting vacant looks on all sides, and their voice choked with fear, they resembled the Daityas after the fall of Hiranyaksha in the days of yore.
Mbh.7.195.10845 After Bhima had ended, the son of the Panchala king, addressing Partha, said these words, like Hiranyakasipu the leader of the Daityas unto the enraged and roaring Vishnu O Vibhatsu, the sages have ordained these to be the duties of Brahmanas, viz, assisting at sacrifices, teaching, giving away, performance of sacrifices, receiving of gifts, and study as the sixth.
Mbh.8.16.648 The battle that took place between him and them made the hair to stand on end, even like the battle between the Daityas and the wielder of the thunderbolt on the occasion of the conquest of the three worlds.
Mbh.8.19.764 The battle that took place between them and him made the hair to stand on end like the encounter between the Daityas and Indra, the wielder of the thunderbolt on the occasion of the conquest of the three worlds.
Mbh.8.19.783 Saying, So be it unto Krishna, Arjuna then, forcibly smiting the remnant of the samsaptakas with his weapons, began to destroy them like Indra destroying the Daityas.
Mbh.8.31.1398 With that bow, O king, Indra had vanquished the Daityas.
Mbh.8.31.1399 At its twang the Daityas beheld the ten points to be empty.
Mbh.8.31.1402 With that bow I will contend in battle with the mighty-armed Arjuna, that foremost of victorious warriors, like Indra fighting with the assembled Daityas.
Mbh.8.33.1546 It hath been heard by us that the Daityas were defeated by the gods.
Mbh.8.33.1547 Upon the defeat of the Daityas, the three sons of Taraka, named Tarakaksha, Kamalaksha and Vidyunmalin, O king, practising the austerest penances, lived in the observance of high vows.
Mbh.8.33.1578 Obtaining alive the slain among them, the Daityas began to afflict the three worlds.
Mbh.8.34.1750 Proceed, O god, to the spot where the Daityas are.
Mbh.8.34.1753 Thus addressed, Brahman urged those steeds endued with the fleetness of the wind or thought towards that spot where the triple city, O king, stood, protected by the Daityas and the Danavas.
Mbh.8.34.1809 Meanwhile, the Daityas became very mighty.
Mbh.8.34.1821 Addressing those enemies of the gods that were endued with might and possessed with folly and pride, he said, Ye Daityas that are fierce in battle, give me battle.
Mbh.8.34.1823 Thus addressed by the descendant of Bhrigu, the Daityas began to fight.
Mbh.8.34.1824 The delighter of the Bhargavas, however, slaying the Daityas in battle, with strokes whose touch resembled that of Indra's thunder, came back to Mahadeva.
Mbh.8.53.3022 The son of Pandu then began to slay those motionless warriors like Indra in days of yore slaying the Daityas in the battle with Taraka.
Mbh.8.60.3449 Behold, checked by Satyaki and Bhima, they have again been stupefied, like the Daityas, that desired to take away the Amrita, made motionless by Sakra and Agni.
Mbh.8.60.3478 There, those mighty car-warriors of the Pancalas are being routed by Karna even as the Daityas had been routed by Sakra in dreadful battle.
Mbh.8.73.4406 Slaying this host like Vishnu in days of yore slaying the Daityas and the Danavas, bestow the Earth on the king like Hari bestowing the three worlds on Sakra.
Mbh.8.79.4854 In the region of Indra he obtained his conch Devadatta and slew innumerable Daityas, and all the Kalakeyas.
Mbh.8.82.5031 That foremost one, however, of Yadu's race fought with those four warriors like the chief of the Daityas fighting with the Regents of the four quarters.
Mbh.9.20.1250 While he shot his arrows in that battle and despatched hostile warriors to Yama's abode, neither the Kauravas nor the Pandavas could notice any lapses in him, even as the Daityas, O king, could not notice any in Vasava, the wielder of the thunder, in days of yore, while the latter was employed in crushing their divisions.
Mbh.9.22.1558 Like the thunder-wielding Indra striking down the Daityas, Arjuna, alone, entering that division of mighty car-warriors, destroyed it with shafts of diverse forms
Mbh.9.23.1577 Those heroes on their cars covered with rows of bells, looked resplendent like Daityas and Danavas intent on the conquest of the three worlds.
Mbh.9.29.2046 With acts and means Indra himself slew the Daityas and the Danavas!
Mbh.9.29.2052 Those two ancient Daityas, Taraka and Viprachitti of great energy, were in ancient times, O king, slain by the aid of acts and means!
Mbh.9.29.2056 Daityas and Danavas and Rakshasas and kings had been slain by the aid of acts and means.
Mbh.9.37.2752 While residing there, Sukra meditated upon the war of the Daityas and the Danavas with the gods.
Mbh.9.41.3015 Upon the conclusion of that sacrifice, a great battle took place between the gods on the one side and the Danavas, the Daityas, and the Rakshasas on the other.
Mbh.9.41.3018 There, on that occasion, Mahasena Skanda, that destroyer of Daityas, obtained the command of the celestial forces.
Mbh.9.42.3025 Tell me also, O foremost of speakers, who they were that invested him and who performed the actual rites, and how the celestial generalissimo made a great carnage of the Daityas
Mbh.9.43.3106 In the great battle between the gods and the Asuras, this companion that Sthanu gave, filled with wrath, slew, with his hands alone, fourteen millions of Daityas of fierce deeds.
Mbh.9.45.3352 Having heard the history of the installation of Kumara and the destruction of the Daityas, great hath been my joy.
Mbh.9.53.3847 Those two foremost of men then looked resplendent like a couple of Daityas swelling with might.
Mbh.12.12.520 Observant of the duties of one's own order, duties respected by the ancients and practised by the best of men, who is there, O Partha, that would grieve, O king, for having in a trice stain in battle his foes that swelled with prosperity, like Sakra slaying the forces of the Daityas?
Mbh.12.29.1480 Having slain many Daityas and Danavas duly arrayed in battle, Nahusha's son, Yayati, divided the whole earth among his children.
Mbh.12.33.1764 Making the earth one vast expanse of blood, the gods slew the Daityas and gained possession of heaven.
Mbh.12.33.1768 Those wicked-souled persons who desire the extinction of virtue and who set sinfulness agoing deserve to be slain even as the furious Daityas were slain by the gods.
Mbh.12.47.2469 Neither the gods, nor the Gandharvas, nor the Daityas, nor the Danavas, know thee truly.
Mbh.12.123.7061 Served dutifully by him, the chief of the Daityas once more said, O foremost of regenerate ones, I am exceedingly gratified with thee in consequence of thy dutiful behaviour towards me.
Mbh.12.123.7063 The Brahmana answered the chief of the Daityas saying, Very well.
Mbh.12.123.7083 I shall go there where that foremost of Brahmanas is, for, O chief of the Daityas, I reside there where Behaviour dwells'
Mbh.12.123.7085 Asked by Prahlada as to who he was, that form possessed of great effulgence answered, saying, Know, O chief of the Daityas, that I am Truth.
Mbh.12.123.7088 Asked by the Daityas king, the mighty being answered, I am the embodiment of Good deeds.
Mbh.12.141.8657 In days of old, Usanas said unto the Daityas this truth, which should remove all doubts, that scriptures are no scriptures if they cannot stand the test of reason.
Mbh.12.165.9832 These and many other Daityas and Danavas, transcending all restraints of duty and religion, sported and took delight in all kinds of wicked acts.
Mbh.12.187.11246 After this, the Deities and the Danavas, the Gandharvas, the Daityas, the Asuras, the great snakes, the Yakshas, the Rakshasas, the Serpents, the Pisachas, and human beings with their four divisions, viz, Brahmanas, Kshatriyas, Vaisyas, and Sudras, O best of regenerate ones, and all the other orders of creatures that exist, were created.
Mbh.12.208.12618 Beholding that extraordinary creature, all the Daityas, uniting together and stupefied by Time, quickly proceeded against it for exerting their strength, and stood surrounding it.
Mbh.12.208.12624 Then that Supreme God of all the gods, having yoga for his soul and yoga for his companion, became rapt in yoga, O chief of the Bharatas, and began to utter tremendous roars, agitating those Daityas and Danavas.
Mbh.12.221.13385 The chief of the Daityas, viz, Prahlada, was unattached to all worldly objects.
Mbh.12.221.13402 Thus urged by Indra, the chief of the Daityas, endued with determinate conclusions in respect of truth, replied unto the former in these sweet words indicative of great wisdom'
Mbh.12.221.13445 Thus addressed by the lord of the Daityas, Sakra became filled with wonder, and commended those words, O king, with a cheerful heart.
Mbh.12.221.13446 The lord of the three worlds then, having worshipped the lord of the Daityas, took his leave and proceeded to his own abode
Mbh.12.222.13478 The Daityas, looking up to thee as their protector, lived under thy sway.
Mbh.12.224.13641 Who, indeed, art thou that thus standest here as Maya herself, blazing with thy own splendour, after having deserted the lord of the Daityas?
Mbh.12.224.13698 The chief of the Daityas, viz, Vali, thus deserted by Sree, then said these words'
Mbh.12.224.13704 Go whithersoever thou wishest, O chief of the Daityas!
Mbh.12.224.13711 Bhishma continued, Thus addressed by Indra, O Bharata, Vali, the chief of the Daityas, proceeded towards the south.
Mbh.12.226.13767 After the battle between the gods and the Asuras, in which a large number of Daityas and Danavas fell, had come to an end.
Mbh.12.226.13775 Beholding the chief of the deities, viz, Indra, thus seated on the back of Airavata and surrounded by the several orders of the celestials, the prince of the Daityas showed no signs of sorrow or agitation.
Mbh.12.226.13849 Prithu, Aila, Maya, Bhima, Naraka, Samvara, Aswagriva, Puloman, Swarbhanu, whose standard was of immeasurable height, Prahlada, Namuchi, Daksha, Vipprachitti, Virochana, Hrinisheva, Suhotra, Bhurihan, Pushavat, Vrisha, Satyepsu, Rishava, Vahu, Kapilaswa, Virupaka, Vana, Kartaswara, Vahni, Viswadanshtra, Nairiti, Sankocha, Varitaksha, Varaha, Aswa, Ruchiprabha, Viswajit, Pratirupa, Vrishanda, Vishkara, Madhu, Hiranyakasipu, the Danava Kaitabha, and many others that were Daityas and Danavas and Rakshasas, these and many more unnamed, belonging to remote and remoter ages, great Daityas and foremost of Danavas, whose names we have heard, indeed, many foremost of Daityas of former times, having gone away, leaving the Earth.
Mbh.12.226.13928 Thus addressed by the chief of the Daityas, he of a hundred sacrifices, viz, the puissant and thousand-eyed chastiser of Paka, restrained his wrath and said these words'
Mbh.12.227.14025 What didst thou see there for which thou hast come hither, having deserted the Daityas and the Danavas'
Mbh.12.278.17034 In this connection is cited that discourse which was sung by the preceptor of the Daityas in days of old.
Mbh.12.279.17120 The Veda that is in the soul, O prince of Daityas, regards the unity of various creatures.
Mbh.12.280.17255 Vasishtha said, Thou art the foremost of the gods, O chief of the deities, O slayer of Daityas and Asuras!
Mbh.12.318.19886 and the Daityas.
Mbh.12.343.22823 Whatever libations of clarified butter or meat are poured on the sacrificial fire according to the ordinances of Brahma, by the Rishis, by Pasupati himself, by the rest of the principal deities, by the Daityas, the Danavas, and the Rakshasas, all reach the feet of that great divinity.
Mbh.12.346.22956 He is the slayer of the Daityas known by the name of Madhu and Kaitabha.
Mbh.12.347.23027 Endued thus with the attributes of Tamas and Rajas, the two Daityas possessed of might and armed with maces, immediately after their birth, began to rove within that vast primeval Lotus.
Mbh.12.347.23083 Thus praised by Brahma, the illustrious Purusha, with face turned towards every side, then shook off his slumber, resolved to recover the Vedas from the Daityas that had forcibly snatched them away.
Mbh.12.349.23368 Indeed, he reflected in this strain, Brahma, otherwise called Parameshthi, has created all these creatures, consisting of Daityas and Danavas and Gandharvas and Rakshasas.
Mbh.12.349.23370 Many among the Daityas and Danavas and Rakshasas on Earth will become endued with great strength.
Mbh.13.6.395 Even he, the adorable Vishnu, who created the three worlds with the Daityas and all the gods, even He is engaged in austere penances in the bosom of the deep.
Mbh.13.14.1078 He assumes also the forms of Yakshas, Rakshasas and Snakes, of Daityas and Danavas.
Mbh.13.14.1199 Who else than that God of gods is competent to unite the sons of Diti with lordship and puissance, judging by the sovereignty and the power of oppressing conferred upon the foremost of the Daityas and Danavas
Mbh.13.14.1254 Brahma and Indra and Hutasana and Vishnu and all the other deities, along with the Daityas and the Asuras, crowned with the fruition of a thousand desires, always say that there is none that is higher than Mahadeva
Mbh.13.17.1887 Thou art the slayer of such Daityas as become the oppressors of the universe.
Mbh.13.17.2105 Thou residest in even the Daityas that are the marks at which shootest thy arrows.
Mbh.13.17.2317 Thou art he that dwells with even the Daityas who are the foes of all sacrifices.
Mbh.13.30.3894 Once on a time the Daityas afflicted him much, believing him to be none else than Indra.
Mbh.13.81.7281 After their defeat at the hands of the Daityas, the deities practised this expiation.
Mbh.13.82.7318 Forsaken by me, the Daityas have been lost for ever.
Mbh.13.83.7385 After the Daityas had been defeated and Sakra had become the lord of the three worlds all creatures grew in prosperity and became devoted to the true religion.
Mbh.13.98.8781 Seated there they began to converse with each other on diverse subjects connected with the high-souled deities and regenerate Rishis and Daityas of ancient times.
Mbh.13.98.8792 Indeed, the chief of the Daityas put this high question to Sukra, that most learned of all ascetics'
Mbh.13.98.8810 O ruler of the Daityas, those deities unto whom worshippers offer flowers, O lord, uttering their names the while, become gratified with the offers in consequence of their devotion.
Mbh.13.98.8849 The exudation of the Boswellia serrata, and others of the same class, are much desired by the Daityas.
Mbh.13.126.10982 Vishnu smiled a little and then said, It was with my circular disc that the Daityas were slain.
Mbh.13.158.13130 It is He who in days of yore slew the Daityas.
Mbh.13.160.13389 Do thou slay the Daityas and destroy their city for the protection of the three worlds, O giver of honours'
Mbh.14.54.2399 So also, O regenerate one, know that all the tribes of the Daityas, all the Yakshas, Gandharvas, Rakshasas, Nagas.
Mbh.14.60.2757 Then Drona, that foremost of all persons conversant with arms, that greatest of men under Duryodhana, like Kavya himself of the lord of the Daityas, became generalissimo
Mbh.16.6.215 Vasudeva said, Without beholding those heroes, O Arjuna, who had subjugated all the kings of the Earth and the Daityas a hundred times, I am still alive!
Mbh.17.3.186 Gifted with great intelligence, Yudhishthira answered the chief of the deities once more, saying, O conqueror of Daityas, I venture not to dwell anywhere separated from them.
