MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.2.366 The Sambhava parva narrates the birth of various kings and heroes, and that of the sage, Krishna Dwaipayana: the partial incarnations of deities, the generation of Danavas and Yakshas of great prowess, and serpents, Gandharvas, birds, and of all creatures; and lastly, of the life and adventures of king Bharata, the progenitor of the line that goes by his name, the son born of Sakuntala in the hermitage of the ascetic Kanwa.
Mbh.1.18.1395 Thereupon Narayana called his bewitching Maya illusive power to his aid, and assuming the form of an enticing female, coquetted with the Danavas.
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.1.19.1399 In the meantime the valiant Lord Vishnu in the form of an enchantress accompanied by Nara deceived the mighty Danavas and took away the Amrita from their hands.
Mbh.1.19.1408 Then Narayana quitting his enchanting female form and hurling many terrible weapons at the Danavas, made them tremble.
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.1.19.1427 On the other hand, the Danavas, white as the clouds from which the rain hath dropped, possessing great strength and bold hearts, ascended the sky, and by hurling down thousands of mountains, continually harassed the gods.
Mbh.1.19.1431 Thus discomfited by the gods, and seeing the furious discus scouring the fields of heaven like a blazing flame, the mighty Danavas entered the bowels of the earth, while others plunged into the sea of salt-waters.
Mbh.1.30.1747 Kasyapa also saw his son, that ranger of the skies, of divine form, possessed of great splendour, and energy and strength, and endued with the speed of the wind or the mind, huge as a mountain peak, a ready smiter like the curse of a Brahmana, inconceivable, indescribable, frightful to all creatures, possessed of great prowess, terrible, of the splendour of Agni himself, and incapable of being overcome by the deities, Danavas, and invincible Rakshasas, capable of splitting mountain summits and sucking the ocean itself and destroying the three worlds, fierce, and looking like Yama himself.
Mbh.1.34.1936 The slayer of the Danavas having said unto him, Be it so' then went to Hari, the god of gods, of great soul, and the lord of Yogins.
Mbh.1.64.3235 The united strength of the creatures such as Sesha, the Tortoise, and the huge Elephant, and of many Seshas too, became capable of supporting the earth with her mountains, burdened as she was with the weight of the Danavas.
Mbh.1.65.3254 And they slew the Danavas, Rakshasas, Gandharvas and Snakes, other man-eaters, and many other creatures.
Mbh.1.65.3255 And, O bull in the Bharata race, the Danavas, Rakshasas and Gandharvas and Snakes, could not slay the incarnate celestials even in their infancy, so strong they were'
Mbh.1.65.3256 Janamejaya said, I desire to hear from the beginning of the births of the gods, the Danavas, the Gandharvas, the Apsaras, men, Yakshas and Rakshasas.
Mbh.1.67.3429 SECTION LXVII Sambhava Parva continued Janamejaya said, O worshipful one, I wish to hear from thee in detail about the birth, among men, of the gods, the Danavas, the Gandharvas, the Rakshasas, the lions, the tigers, and the other animals, the snakes, the birds, and in fact, of all creatures.
Mbh.1.67.3431 Vaisampayana said, O king of men, I shall first tell thee all about those celestials and Danavas that were born among men, The first of Danavas, who was known by the name of Viprachitti, became that bull among men, noted as Jarasandha.
Mbh.1.67.3450 The first of Danavas, the heroic Hara, who humbled the pride of all foes became on earth the famous and fortunate Suvahu.
Mbh.1.67.3458 That bull amongst the Danavas who was known by the name of Arka became on earth, O king, the royal sage Rishika.
Mbh.1.67.3465 That bull amongst the Danavas, O prince of the Kuru race, who was called Dhirghajihva, became noted on earth as Kasiraja.
Mbh.1.67.3487 There was also born on earth a mighty Asura known amongst the Danavas by the name of Kalanemi, endued with great strength, of grand achievements, and blessed with a large share of prosperity.
Mbh.1.68.3594 SECTION LXVIII Sambhava Parva continued Janamejaya said, O Brahmana, I have, indeed, heard from thee this account of the incarnation, according to their portions, of the gods, the Danavas, the Rakshasas, and also of the Gandharvas and the Apsaras.
Mbh.1.76.4200 Those Danavas assembled for encounter that were slain by the gods were all revived by the seer Sukra by the power of his knowledge.
Mbh.1.76.4208 He always protects the Danavas but never us, their opponents.
Mbh.1.76.4230 And when five hundred years had thus passed of Kacha's vow, the Danavas came to learn his intention.
Mbh.1.76.4252 As soon as I said this, the Danavas slew me, and hacking my body into pieces gave my remains to jackals and wolves.
Mbh.1.76.4256 And as he was roving about for gathering flowers, the Danavas beheld him.
Mbh.1.76.4315 Having said these words that high-souled one, that ascetic of ascetics, then summoning the Danavas who had been deprived by fate of the good sense, told them these words, Ye foolish Danavas, know ye that Kacha hath obtained his wishes.
Mbh.1.76.4319 The Danavas were surprised and went away to their homes.
Mbh.1.80.4500 And the Danavas worshipped him with great reverence
Mbh.1.82.4600 Yayati answered, Well do I know that honour of birth is thine, born as thou art in the proud race of the Danavas.
Mbh.1.137.7351 And that prince, mace in hand, thus surrounded by his hundred brothers with uplifted weapons appeared like Purandara in days of yore, encircled by the celestial host on the occasion of the battle with the Danavas
Mbh.1.139.7416 The thunder that slayeth the Danavas was made of a bone of a mortal named Dadhichi.
Mbh.1.172.8822 The Yakshas, Rakshasas, Gandharvas, Pisachas, Uragas and Danavas, are possessed of wisdom and intelligence, and acquainted with the history of the Kuru race.
Mbh.1.226.11072 It was the very car from which the lord Soma had vanquished the Danavas.
Mbh.1.229.11184 SECTION CCXXX Khandava-daha Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Then the inhabitants of the forest of Khandava, the Danavas and Rakshasas and Nagas and wolves and bears and other wild animals, and elephants with rent temples, and tigers, and lions with manes and deer and buffaloes by hundreds, and birds, and various other creatures, frightened at the falling stones and extremely anxious, began to fly in all directions.
Mbh.1.229.11190 The forest-dwellers including the Danavas and the Rakshasas, afflicted by that weapon, were cut in hundreds of pieces and fell unto the mouth of Agni.
Mbh.1.229.11221 Hari slew with his discus those Rakshasas and Danavas and Nagas that rushed at him in bands.
Mbh.2.1.12 I am a great artist, a Viswakarma among the Danavas.
Mbh.2.3.67 On the north of the Kailasa peak near the mountains of Mainaka, while the Danavas were engaged in a sacrifice on the banks of Vindu lake, I gathered a huge quantity of delightful and variegated vanda a kind of rough materials composed of jewels and gems.
Mbh.2.3.71 There is also, I think, O thou of the Kuru race, a fierce club placed in the lake Vindu by the King of the Danavas after slaughtering therewith all his foes in battle.
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.2.11.447 And Rakshasas, Pisachas, the Danavas and Guhyakas; Nagas, Birds, and various animals; and all mobile and immobile great beings, all worship the Grandsire.
Mbh.2.18.810 Of celestial beauty I was placed in the world for the destruction of the Danavas.
Mbh.2.64.2622 Yudhishthira said, O king, however, undeserving he may be of being made a stake, I will now play with thee by staking Bhimasena, that prince who is our leader, who is the foremost in fight, even like the wielder of the thunder-bolt, the one enemy of the Danavas, the high-souled one with leonine neck and arched eye-brows and eyes looking askance, who is incapable of putting up with an insult, who hath no equal in might in the world, who is the foremost of all wielders of the mace, and who grindeth all foes Vaisampayana said, Hearing this, Sakuni, ready with the dice adopting foul means, said unto Yudhishthira.
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.3.12.635 When the dreadful Danavas Madhu and Kaitava were bent on slaying Brahma, beholding their impious endeavour thou wert angry, and from thy forehead, O Hari, sprang Sambhu, the holder of the trident.
Mbh.3.14.794 At that instant, I had an encounter with numerous Danavas, all of whom, however, I subdued and prostrated on the ground.
Mbh.3.17.855 And with his steeds, more flying than running on the ground, he rushed against the foe And the hero equipped with quiver and sword, with fingers cased in leather, twanged his bow possessed of the splendour of the lightning, with great strength, and transferring it from hand to hand, as if in contempt of the enemy, spread confusion among the Danavas and other warriors of the city of Saubha.
Mbh.3.17.856 And as hot in contempt of the, foe, and continuously slew the Danavas in battle, no one could mark the slightest interval between his successive shafts.
Mbh.3.17.871 And beholding the heroic king Salwa fallen down deprived of sense, the foremost of the Danavas fled away rending the ground beneath their feet.
Mbh.3.18.899 Further, O thou of mighty arms, thou art alone, while the Danavas are many.
Mbh.3.20.998 And the tinted arrows shot by the fore-part of hand penetrated into the bodies of the Danavas like biting insects.
Mbh.3.20.1000 And the Danavas deprived of their arms, necks, and wearing the form of Kavandhas, fell, sending up tremendous roars.
Mbh.3.22.1066 But those Danavas that had sent up that shout were all slain by those shafts of mine blazing as the Sun himself, and capable of striking at the perception of sound alone.
Mbh.3.22.1072 And then the destroying Danavas of fierce forms suddenly drowned me with a mighty shower of rocks.
Mbh.3.22.1099 I launched with the might of my arms and in wrath with mantras, the great powerful discus Sudarsana which reduceth to ashes in battle Yakshas and Rakshasas and Danavas and kings born in impure tribes, sharp-edged like the razor, and without stain, like unto Yama the destroyer, and incomparable, and which killeth enemies.
Mbh.3.22.1109 And beholding their town, high as the peak of the Meru, with its palaces and gate-ways utterly destroyed, and all ablaze, the Danavas fled in fear.
Mbh.3.27.1268 Beholding that Arjuna that tiger among men worshipped by both the celestials and the Danavas so anxious, why, O king, dost thou not feel indignant?
Mbh.3.28.1285 One day Vali asked his grand-father Prahlada, the chief of the Asuras and the Danavas, possessed of great wisdom and well-versed in the mysteries of the science of duty, saying, O sire, is forgiveness meritorious or might and energy such?
Mbh.3.40.2142 Ye both, by your might, hold the universe; O lord, taking up that fierce bow whose twang resembled the deep roar of the clouds, thou, as well as Krishna, chastisedest the Danavas during the coronation of Indra.
Mbh.3.40.2151 Arjuna said, O illustrious god having the bull for thy sign, if thou wilt grant me my desire, I ask of thee, O lord that fierce celestial weapon wielded by thee and called Brahmasira, that weapon of terrific prowess which destroyeth, at the end of the Yuga the entire universe, that weapon by the help of which, O god of gods, I may under thy grace, obtain victory in the terrible conflict which shall take place between myself on one side, and Karna and Bhishma and Kripa and Drona on the other, that weapon by which I may consume in battle Danavas and Rakshasas and evil spirits and Pisachas and Gandharvas and Nagas, that weapon which when hurled with Mantras produceth darts by thousands and fierce-looking maces and arrows like snakes of virulent poison, and by means of which I may fight with Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Karna of ever abusive tongue, O illustrious destroyer of the eyes of Bhaga, even this is my foremost desire, viz, that I may be able to fight with them and obtain success'
Mbh.3.40.2168 And the gods and the Danavas beheld that terrible weapon in its embodied form stay by the side of Arjuna of immeasurable energy.
Mbh.3.40.2172 Then the lord of all the dwellers of heaven, the deity of blazing splendour having his abode on mountain-breasts, the husband of Uma, the god of passions under complete control, the source of all blessings, Bhava gave unto Arjuna, that foremost of men, the great bow called Gandiva, destructive of Danavas and Pisachas.
Mbh.3.41.2196 Thou shalt also defeat those Danavas of fierce prowess that have been born amongst men, and those Danavas also that are called Nivatakavachas.
Mbh.3.41.2198 And, O son of Kunti, smiter of all foes, thou shalt also slay all the portions of celestials and Danavas and the Rakshasas that have been incarnate on earth.
Mbh.3.41.2219 O thou of mighty arms, thou wilt defeat even invincible Daityas and Danavas.
Mbh.3.42.2257 Even kings of great prosperity who have performed great sacrifices distinguished by large gifts to Brahmanas, even gods and Danavas are not competent to ride this car.
Mbh.3.47.2453 Those fierce and mighty Danavas live in the nether regions.
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.3.82.4049 O thou of great intelligence, Vishnu the creator of the universe, after slaying the Daityas and Danavas, went thither to purify himself.
Mbh.3.94.4999 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.3.100.5246 There were in the Krita age certain tribes of fierce Danavas that were invincible in battle.
Mbh.3.101.5281 And the encounter that took place between the gods and the Danavas lasted for a short while and was, O chief of the Bharatas, terrific in the extreme, appalling as it did the three worlds.
Mbh.3.101.5297 And mustering together, the celestials began to slay the Danavas, who were dejected at the death of their leader.
Mbh.3.101.5298 And struck with panic at sight of the assembled celestial host, the afflicted Danavas fled to the depths of the sea.
Mbh.3.101.5299 And having entered the fathomless deep, teeming with fishes and crocodiles, the Danavas assembled together and began to proudly conspire for the destruction of the three worlds.
Mbh.3.101.5305 And all the Danavas, having arrived at this resolution for the destruction of the universe, became highly glad.
Mbh.3.102.5313 And it was thus that those Danavas the Kalakeyas, intoxicated with prowess of arms and their lives nearly run out, gradually invaded all the asylums of the Rishis during the darkness of the night, slaughtering numerous Brahmanas.
Mbh.3.102.5314 And, O best of men, although the Danavas behaved in this way towards the ascetics in woody retreats, yet men failed to discover anything of them.
Mbh.3.102.5322 And some who were brave and mighty bowmen cheerfully went out and took great trouble in tracking the Danavas.
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.3.158.8031 And when that lord of all the Rakshasas is seated on the summit, all creatures behold him like unto the sun arisen, O best of Bharatas, that summit is the sporting-garden of the celestials, and the Danavas, and the Siddhas, and Vaisravana.
Mbh.3.162.8229 And the region of the high-souled Vishnu, by its native splendour, exceeding in effulgence the sun or fire, cannot be beheld by the gods, or the Danavas.
Mbh.3.167.8463 O king, when I had said these words, Indra with a smile said unto me Nothing is there in the three worlds that is not in thy power to achieve My enemies, those Danavas, named, Nivata-Kavachas dwell in the womb of the ocean.
Mbh.3.167.8480 And here is the best of shells; by this also thou shalt defeat the Danavas And by this it is that the high souled Sakra conquered the words'
Mbh.3.167.8483 And in order to be engaged in action, I proceeded to the dreadful abode of the Danavas, furnished with the shell, the mail, and arrows, and taking my bow
Mbh.3.168.8490 And having beheld that excellent lord of all waters with powerful tides, I saw at a short distance the city of the demons filled with the Danavas.
Mbh.3.168.8492 And hearing that rattling of the chariot like unto the rumbling of the clouds in the sky, the Danavas, thinking me to be the lord of the celestials, became agitated.
Mbh.3.168.8494 Then having made arrangements for the defence of the city, the Danavas, with minds alarmed, shut the gates, so that nothing could be discovered.
Mbh.3.168.8501 Then the Danavas there began to sound thousands of musical instruments, dissonant and of odd shapes.
Mbh.3.169.8517 And by their tread, and by the rattling of the chariot wheels and by the vollies of my shafts, the Danavas began to fall by hundreds.
Mbh.3.169.8519 Then, covering all sides and directions, all the Danavas skilled in striking entered into the contest with various weapons, and thereat my mind became afflicted.
Mbh.3.170.8544 And, O Bharata, when the rocky shower had been destroyed, and the watery shower had been dried up, the Danavas began to spread illusions of fire and wind.
Mbh.3.170.8546 And when these had been repelled, the Danavas, irrepressible in battle, O foremost of the Bharata, simultaneously created various illusions.
Mbh.3.170.8561 Having heard these words of his, pacifying my perturbation by my own effort, I will destroy the mighty energy of the illusion spread by the Danavas quoth I unto the terrified Matali.
Mbh.3.170.8574 Thereupon, in that conflict then raging, calculated to annihilate the Nivata-Kavachas on a sudden, I could not see the Danavas concealed by illusion
Mbh.3.171.8583 And, O Bharata, other dreadful Danavas, entering into the entrails of the earth, took up horses' legs and chariot-wheels.
Mbh.3.171.8592 And slaughtered by the vehemence of the thunder, those Danavas resembling cliffs, fell to the earth together in masses.
Mbh.3.171.8593 And entering amongst those Danavas that had carried away the steeds of the car into the interior of the earth, the shafts sent them into the mansion of Yama.
Mbh.3.171.8608 Thereupon, O Bharata, in this matter the Lord commanded Indra, saying, O slayer of foes, in another body, even thou shalt be the destroyer of the Danavas'
Mbh.3.171.8613 Arjuna continued, After having destroyed the Danavas, and also subdued that city, with Matali I again went to that abode of the celestials
Mbh.3.172.8636 And those foremost of the Danavas, of exceeding prowess, in wrath attacked me with arrows and bhallas and clubs and two-edged swords, and tomaras.
Mbh.3.172.8638 And being bewildered, the Danavas began to push each other down.
Mbh.3.172.8641 And hard pressed by me, the offspring of Diti, taking shelter within their city, soared with it to the firmament, resorting to the illusion proper to the Danavas.
Mbh.3.172.8663 And saying, O best of the Bharatas, the dreadful and eternal Raudra, I being free from fear, set it on the Gandiva; and, bowing unto the three-eyed Sarva of immeasurable energy, let go the weapon, with the object of vanquishing those foremost of the Danavas, O Bharata.
Mbh.3.172.8666 And again and again wounded by beings of various sights with pieces of flesh, fat, bones, and marrow on their persons, some having three heads, and some four tusks, and some four mouths, and some four arms, the Danavas met with destruction.
Mbh.3.172.8667 And, then, O Bharata, in a moment I slew all those Danavas, with other swarms of arrows composed of the quintessence of stone, flaming like fire or the sun, and possessed of the force of the thunder-bolt.
Mbh.3.172.8673 And when that aerial city had been destroyed, and when the Danavas also had been slain, their wives, uttering cries of distress, like unto Kurari birds, with hair dishevelled came out of the city.
Mbh.3.172.8676 And that city of Danavas, in appearance like unto the city of the Gandharvas filled with lamentations and stricken with dole and distress, and bereft of grace even like unto a lake deprived of its elephants, or like unto a forest deprived of trees and deprived of its masters, looked no longer beautiful, but it vanished, like a cloud-constructed city.
Mbh.3.172.8683 And, O Dhananjaya, thus in battle shalt thou always remain calm, and discharge the weapons unerringly, and there shall not stand thee in fight celestials, and Danavas, and Rakshasas, and Yakshas, and Asuras, and Gandharvas and birds and serpents.
Mbh.3.174.8702 He then spake unto Arjuna, that delight of his mother, saying, O Kaunteya, do thou show me those weapons with which thou vanquished the Danavas'
Mbh.3.187.9284 Thou, O Brahmana, worshippest Brahma at the time of the great dissolution of the universe, when this world is without sky and without the gods and Danavas.
Mbh.3.187.9367 And then that fire, penetrating through the Earth and making its appearance, in the nether regions also, begetteth great terror in the hearts of the gods, the Danavas and the Yakshas.
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.3.187.9431 O Divine Being, the gods, the Danavas and the Rakshasas, the Yakshas, the Gandharvas, and the Nagas, indeed, the whole universe mobile and immobile, are all within thy body!
Mbh.3.200.10298 SECTION CC Vaisampayana said, Having, O great king, heard from the illustrious Markandeya the history of the attainment of heaven by the royal sage Indradyumna, Yudhishthira, that bull of the Bharata race, once more asked that sinless Muni endued with great ascetic merit and long life, saying, Thou knowest, O virtuous one, the entire host of the gods, the Danavas, and the Rakshasas.
Mbh.3.201.10368 And it extends many yojanas in length and breadth and in that desert dwells a chief of the Danavas called Dhundhu by name.
Mbh.3.202.10399 He was beheld some time after by two Danavas of great prowess named Madhu and Kaitabha and beholding Hari in that posture and the Grandsire with eyes like lotus-leaves seated on that lotus, both Madhu and Kaitabha wandered much and they began to terrify and alarm Brahma of immeasurable prowess, and the illustrious Brahma alarmed by their continued exertions trembled on his seat, and at his trembling the stalk of the lotus on which he was seated began to tremble and when the lotus-stalk trembled, Kesava awoke.
Mbh.3.202.10400 And awakened from his slumber, Govinda beheld those Danavas of mighty energy, and beholding them the Deity said unto them, Welcome, ye mighty ones!
Mbh.3.202.10403 And thereupon both those proud and mighty Danavas, O king, laughingly replied unto Hrishikesa, saying, Ask boons of us, O Divine one!
Mbh.3.203.10429 And the boon he had asked of the lord Prajapati was in these words, Let no one among the gods, the Danavas, the Rakshas, the Snakes, the Gandharvas and the Rakshasas be capable of slaying me.
Mbh.3.222.11246 And Purandara Indra beholding the great slaughter of his armies by them and anxious to find out a leader for the celestial host, thought within himself, I must find out a mighty person who observing the ranks of the celestial army shattered by the Danavas will be able to reorganize it with vigour'
Mbh.3.228.11465 Skanda replied, Do thou anoint me as leader, for the destruction of the Danavas, for the good of the celestials, and for the well-being of cows and Brahmanas'
Mbh.3.230.11644 The Danavas made a great havoc by cutting up their soldiers, horses, elephants, chariots and arms.
Mbh.3.230.11649 Do ye all take up your arms, and resolve upon manly conduct, and ye will meet with no more misfortune, and defeat those wicked and terrible-looking Danavas.
Mbh.3.230.11651 Do ye fall upon the Danavas with me'
Mbh.3.230.11652 The dwellers of heaven were re-assured on hearing this speech from Sakra; and under his leadership, they again rushed against the Danavas.
Mbh.3.230.11660 But the gods were soon worsted all on a sudden, and the terrible Danavas again made a great havoc of the celestial army.
Mbh.3.230.11667 And this act of Mahisha struck terror into the hearts of the gods, and with his attendant Danavas he fell upon them like a lion attacking a herd of deer.
Mbh.3.230.11681 It was observed both by the gods and the Danavas that Skanda hurled his sakti again and again on the field of battle, and that it returned to his hands, after killing thousands of the enemy's forces.
Mbh.3.230.11682 And the terrible Danavas fell in large numbers by the arrows of the wise Mahasena.
Mbh.3.230.11684 And they joyously exterminated the Danavas in no time, just as the sun destroys darkness, or as fire destroys a forest, or as the winds drive away the clouds.
Mbh.3.230.11691 Thou hast killed in battle hundreds of Danavas equal in valour to Mahisha who were all hostile to us, and who used to harass us before.
Mbh.3.230.11698 And that son of the Fire-god, having killed the Danavas hath conquered the three worlds, in one day, and he hath been worshipped by the great Rishis.
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.3.249.12334 And taking up the king back to the nether regions, and having brought him thus in a moment, she apprised the Danavas of it.
Mbh.3.249.12335 And the Danavas beholding the king brought into their midst in the night, united together, and all of them with well-pleased hearts and eyes expanded in delight addressed these flattering words to Duryodhana
Mbh.3.250.12336 SECTION CCL The Danavas said, O Suyodhana, O great king?
Mbh.3.250.12351 For aiding thee, many heroic Danavas have been born on the earth.
Mbh.3.250.12354 Indeed, when the Danavas will enter their heart and possess them completely, flinging all affections to a distance, becoming hard-hearted, these warriors will strike every body opposed to them in battle without sparing sons, brothers, fathers, friends, disciples, relatives, even children and old men.
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.3.250.12383 And, O king, others with Bhishma, Drona, and Kripa at their head, having their faculties influenced by the Danavas, were not so affectionate towards the sons of Pandu as they had been.
Mbh.3.270.13196 And that Being, arriving at the sacrificial enclosure of Vali, king of the Danavas, entered the sacrificial assembly with the aid of Vrihaspati.
Mbh.3.270.13200 Do thou, lord of the Danavas, give me three paces of ground'
Mbh.3.274.13326 And at this, the gods, the Gandharvas and the Danavas quickly assembled to take counsel as to how they should be born on earth according to their respective parts.
Mbh.3.279.13637 And inflamed by desire, that conquerer in battle of the gods, the Danavas, the Gandharvas, the Yakshas, and the Kimpurushas, attired in celestial robes and possessing handsome features, decked with jewelled earrings and wearing a beautiful garland and crown, entered the Asoka woods, like an embodiment of the vernal season.
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.3.288.14071 And the gods and the Danavas and the Kinnaras were led by the display of that Brahma weapon to regard the life of their Rakshasa foe almost closed.
Mbh.3.289.14117 Thou hast, O hero, slain this enemy of the gods, the Gandharvas, the Nagas, the Yakshas, the Danavas, and the great Rishis!
Mbh.3.300.14793 Therefore, it is, O son, that desirous of beholding thee slain in battle by Arjuna, the destroyer of the Danavas desireth to deprive thee of thy ear-rings.
Mbh.3.308.15111 And beholding Karna cutting his own body, the entire host of celestials and men and Danavas set up a leonine roar.
Mbh.4.23.1055 And beholding the tree that had been uprooted by Bhimasena, they set Draupadi free and ran breathlessly towards the city And seeing them run away, Bhima, that mighty son of the Wind-god, despatched, O foremost of kings, by means of that tree, a hundred and five of them unto the abode of Yama, like the wielder of the thunderbolt slaying the Danavas.
Mbh.4.36.1449 Like a second wielder of the thunderbolt terrifying the Danavas, I will bring back the kine this very moment, affrighting in battle Duryodhana and Bhishma and Karna and Kripa and Drona with his son, and other mighty bowmen assembled for fight.
Mbh.4.43.1640 Worshipped ever by the gods, the Danavas and the Gandharvas and variegated with excellent colours, this large and smooth bow is without a knot or stain anywhere.
Mbh.4.44.1685 I am named Kiritin from a diadem, resplendent like the sun, having been placed of old on my head by Indra during my encounter with the powerful Danavas.
Mbh.4.45.1757 Who was my ally while engaged in the terrific conflict at Khandava against so many celestials and Danavas?
Mbh.4.49.1914 Aided by our troops arrayed in ranks, ourselves, great bowmen, standing carefully will fight with Arjuna even as the Danavas encounter Vasava in battle
Mbh.4.58.2270 And the fight that took place between those enraged lions among men, incapable of bearing each other, was like unto encounter between the gods and the Danavas.
Mbh.4.59.2298 And terrible was the encounter between them, like that between the gods and the Danavas.
Mbh.4.61.2398 Like unto the wielder of the thunderbolt overthrowing the Danavas, alone I shall, with my straight arrows, bring down from the chambers of their cars the mighty warrior of the Kuru army stationed therein and struggling in the conflict to the best of their power.
Mbh.5.7.192 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by Krishna, Dhananjaya the son of Kunti selected Kesava who was not to fight on the battle-field, even Narayana himself, the slayer of foes, increate, born among men at his own will, the foremost of all Kshatriyas and above all the gods and the Danavas.
Mbh.5.14.618 Discover thyself, O slayer of Daityas and Danavas.
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.5.51.2923 Like the foremost of the celestials, the great Indra, smiting the Danavas with his thunderbolt, Bhimasena will, mace in hand, slay all my sons!
Mbh.5.99.4674 Celebrated over all the universe, it is worshipped by the Daityas and the Danavas.
Mbh.5.99.4685 Deprived of their prosperity by Vasava, it is here that many sinful Danavas live confined, defeated by him and afflicted by Time.
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.5.100.4701 Endued with great energy and heroism, many Danavas, having obtained boons from Brahman in days of old, lived here, exhibiting a thousand different kinds of illusion.
Mbh.5.100.4705 Besides these, another class of Danavas called Nivatakavachas, who are invincible in battle, have their abode here.
Mbh.5.100.4720 The gods and the Danavas, though brothers, are ever at hostility with each other.
Mbh.5.100.4723 It behoveth me not to search among the Danavas.
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.5.128.5682 And Varuna, the Lord of the waters, having bound those Danavas, with Dharma's noose, as also with his own, keepeth them within the depths of the ocean, always guarding them carefully.
Mbh.5.130.5803 When Sauri went to Pragjyotisha, Naraka with all the Danavas succeeded not in seizing him there.
Mbh.5.138.6187 Indeed, after this, that Ape-bannered warrior consumed in battle, taking up his fierce weapons, those Danavas of terrible deeds called the Nivatakavachas.
Mbh.5.159.7053 In that terrific encounter also with the Gods and Danavas banded together in great numbers at Khandava, who was my ally when I fought?
Mbh.5.159.7054 When, again, I fought with the Nivatakavachas and with those other Danavas called Kalakeyas, who was my ally?
Mbh.5.166.7526 Incapable of being humiliated by persons accomplished in arms, shooting or hurling his weapons to a great distance, and a severe smiter, he will destroy the ranks of the foe, as the great Indra destroying the Danavas.
Mbh.5.170.7714 What car-warrior can be regarded as his equal, who, stationed on a single car' slew in battle a thousand Danavas, having their abode in Hiranyapura?
Mbh.5.173.7779 Displaying his prowess he will fight, like a second Indra against the Danavas.
Mbh.5.174.7818 With a shower of arrows, I stopped their onrush on all sides and vanquished them like the chief of celestials vanquishing hordes of Danavas.
Mbh.6.14.729 Like unto a mighty cloud of high altitude, having the twang of his bowstring for its roar, his arrows for its rain-drops, and the sound of his bow for its thunder, that hero showering his shafts on Kunti's sons with the Panchalas and the Srinjayas on their side, smote hostile car-warriors like the slayer of Vala smiting the Danavas.
Mbh.6.14.744 In days of yore, all the gods while engaged in slaying the Danavas, sought the aid of that invincible warrior, viz, my father of high vows.
Mbh.6.20.953 The troops of the Kauravas looked like the army of the chief of the Danavas, while that of the Pandavas looked like the army of the celestials.
Mbh.6.23.1030 Thou always defeatest the Danavas.
Mbh.6.34.1581 All this that thou tellest me, O Kesava, I regard as true since, O Holy One, neither the gods nor the Danavas understand thy manifestation.
Mbh.6.45.2234 And the battle that ensued between those two proud heroes, O king, soon became as terrible as a combat between the gods and the Danavas.
Mbh.6.57.3026 And so Bhimasena and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, and Satyaki, and Chekitana, and the sons of Draupadi, O Bharata, supported by all the kings on their side, began to grind thy troops and thy sons stationed in battle, like the gods grinding the Danavas.
Mbh.6.58.3038 And beholding there on that occasion the superhuman lightness of hand that Vibhatsu possessed, the gods, the Danavas, the Gandharvas, the Pisachas, the Uragas and the Rakshasas eulogised Phalguni, O king, saying, Excellent, Excellent'
Mbh.6.59.3160 In a single day Bhishma can slaughter all the Daityas and the Danavas.
Mbh.6.67.3691 And O sire, in consequence of Madhu's slaughter, the gods, the Danavas, and human beings, and Rishis, call Janardana the slayer of Madhu.
Mbh.6.69.3767 And the Pandavas also proceeded, O king, firmly setting their hearts upon victory, and the battle then that took place between the combatants of both armies desirous of victory and fame, was fierce and highly wonderful, resembling that in days of yore between the gods and Danavas.
Mbh.6.72.3871 Meanwhile, Bhishma the son of Santanu began to slay the Pandava forces like Indra slaying the Danavas.
Mbh.6.77.4049 And although the son of Pandu was there in the very midst of the Kaurava array, yet fear entered not his heart, as it did not that of Indra while surrounded by the Danavas in the fierce battle of old between the celestials and the Asuras.
Mbh.6.77.4070 Behold me slaying the foe like Vasava slaying the Danavas'
Mbh.6.77.4084 On the other hand, that mighty car-warrior, the youthful son of Drupada, beholding those heroic sons of thine staying before him in battle and exerting themselves to their utmost being desirous of slaying them applied that fierce weapon called Pramohana and engaged with thy sons, O king, like Indra with the Danavas in battle.
Mbh.6.84.4410 As the chief of the celestials, excited with wrath, had inspired the Danavas with fear, so did Bhagadatta, O king, frightened the Pandava warriors.
Mbh.6.93.4885 SECTION XCIII Sanjaya said, That arrowy shower, difficult of being borne by even the Danavas, king Duryodhana, however, quietly bore in that battle, like a gigantic elephant bearing a shower from the blue
Mbh.6.98.5244 Slay the brave sons of Pandu like Mahendra slaying the Danavas,
Mbh.6.103.5503 And at that feat of Partha, the gods and the Danavas assembled there for witnessing the fight were highly gratified.
Mbh.6.108.5800 Arjuna can slay in battle the very gods exerting themselves actively, along with the Daityas and the Danavas.
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.6.120.6613 As regards myself also, O hero, the very gods, Danavas and Rakshasas united together, are incapable of vanquishing me.
Mbh.7.3.129 Who is there that is competent to vanquish him who could not be vanquished by thee before, although thou, endued with great energy, hadst vanquished Rama himself in battle, that fierce destroyer of the Kshatriya race, worshipped, besides, by the gods and the Danavas?
Mbh.7.6.191 Disposing these troops in battle array, slay thou our foes, like Indra slaying the Danavas.
Mbh.7.7.253 Slaughtered by Drona, like Danavas by Vasava, the Panchalas headed by Dhrishtadyumna trembled in that battle.
Mbh.7.7.257 He then shot at Prishata's son a thick shower of arrows, like Maghavat excited with rage showering his arrows with great force upon the Danavas, Then the Pandavas and the Srinjayas, shaken by Drona with his shafts, repeatedly broke like a herd of inferior animals attacked by a lion.
Mbh.7.13.532 And as the Danavas were unable to look at Indra, so there was not one amongst the Pandavas, who.
Mbh.7.16.715 The battle then that took place between thy troops and those of the Pandavas, was exceedingly fierce and made the hairs stand on their ends, resembling as it did that between the Gods and the Danavas.
Mbh.7.16.719 The battle that took place between those mighty men engaged with mighty antagonists and all smiting one another was fierce in the extreme, resembling that of yore between the Danavas and the gods.
Mbh.7.21.1045 And the Panchalas, the Kaikeyas and the Matsyas, thus slaughtered on all sides like the Danavas by Indra, began to tremble with fear
Mbh.7.24.1292 Indeed, Bhagadatta, mounted on that elephant of his, began to smite down the Pandavas, like the chief of the celestials mounted on Airavata smiting down the Danavas in days of old
Mbh.7.73.3212 Urged by the chief of the celestials, he slew on a single car, a thousand Danavas dwelling in Hiranyapura!
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.7.78.3466 And Krishna adored, with speech, mind, understanding, and acts, that God who is the first source of the universe, himself uncreate, the supreme lord of unfading glory: who is the highest cause of the mind, who is space and the wind, who is the cause of all the luminous bodies in the firmament, who is the creator of the rain, and the supreme, primordial substance of the earth, who is the object of adoration, with the gods, the Danavas, the Yakshas, and human beings; who is the supreme Brahma that is seen by Yogins and the refuge of those acquainted with Shastras, who is the creator of all mobile and immobile creatures, and their destroyer also; who is the Wrath that burns everything at the end of the Yuga; who is the supreme soul; who is the Sakra and Surya, and the origin of all attributes.
Mbh.7.116.5657 Satyaki said, Like Vasava destroying the Danavas, I shall slay these warriors with shaved heads.
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.7.121.5929 Of prowess incapable of being baffled, and endued with might equal to that of Sakra himself, alone he achieved feats in battle like the great Indra amidst the Danavas!
Mbh.7.125.6264 He by whom with the aid of a single bow the Nivatakavachas were vanquished, those Danavas, that is, that were incapable of being defeated by the very gods, he, viz, Partha, by good luck, liveth still.
Mbh.7.136.6813 And the passage-at-arms that then took place between those two engaged lions among men that could not brook each other in battle resembled that of old between the gods and the Danavas.
Mbh.7.141.7152 They are vanquishers of the very gods, the Danavas and the Gandharvas.
Mbh.7.143.7440 Indeed, that hero decked with diadem and garlands, having accomplished his former vow, began to destroy his foes like the chief of the celestials destroying the Danavas, or the sun destroying darkness'
Mbh.7.144.7511 The gods, the Gandharvas, and the Danavas, in the welkin, intently watched that battle between Karna and the grandson of Sini.
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.7.146.7646 Through thy grace, O Govinda, we will conquer our foes, like Indra conquering the Danavas in days of old.
Mbh.7.148.7749 Beholding Bhisma who was incapable of being defeated by the gods and the Danavas, actually slain in battle, even then I knew that this Bharata host is doomed.
Mbh.7.156.8418 The battle that took place between them, and in which each party counteracted the feats of the other' resembled the encounter between Sakra and the Danavas in the great battle fought of yore between the gods and the Asuras.
Mbh.7.156.8483 Neither the gods nor the Danavas are capable of staying within the range of thy weapons, O son of Drona, slay the Panchalas and the Somakas with all their followers.
Mbh.7.159.8601 Those steeds endued with the speed of the wind or the mind, bore Yuyudhana to battle like the steeds of Indra, O king, bearing the latter in days of yore when he proceeded to quell the Danavas.
