Mbh.9.6.399 O hero, slay our foes in battle like Indra slaying the Danavas
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.9.29.2056 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.9.42.3063 The seven Matris also were present there, O monarch, and the Sadhyas, the Viswedevas, the Maruts, the Vasus, the Rudras, the Adityas, the Siddhas, the Danavas, the birds, the self-born and adorable Brahman with his sons, and Vishnu, and Shakra, all went thither for beholding that child of unfading glory.
Mbh.9.42.3079 The gods, the Danavas, and the Rakshasas, made a loud noise at sight of that exceedingly wonderful incident making the very hair to stand on end.
Mbh.9.47.3507 Upon the commencement of that foremost of sacrifices, a battle ensued between the gods and the Danavas inspiring the three worlds with terror.
Mbh.11.25.1054 The Vrishnis are incapable of being slain by others, be they human beings or gods or Danavas.
Mbh.12.8.312 Judge truly, O king, and look at the conduct of the gods and the Danavas.
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.12.33.1765 Having obtained possession of the earth, a large number of Brahmanas, conversant with the Vedas, armed themselves, stupefied with pride, with the Danavas for giving them help in the fight.
Mbh.12.47.2310 The gods, the Danavas, the Gandharvas, the Yakshas, the Pannagas, do not know who thou art and whence art thou.
Mbh.12.47.2469 Neither the gods, nor the Gandharvas, nor the Daityas, nor the Danavas, know thee truly.
Mbh.12.63.3498 In days of old when the Danavas had multiplied and swept away all barriers and distinctions the powerful Mandhatri, O monarch, became king.
Mbh.12.165.9830 The foremost of the Danavas, however, setting at night the commands of the Grandsire, and yielding to wrath and covetousness, began to cause the destruction of righteousness.
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.12.165.9873 Hearing that Rudra had assumed that form for achieving fierce deeds, the Danavas, filled with joy, began to come towards him with great speed, showering huge rocks upon him as they come, and blazing brands of wood, and diverse kinds of terrible weapons made of iron and each endued with the sharpness of a razor.
Mbh.12.165.9878 Others among the Danavas, afflicted with strokes of the sword, broke and fled in all directions, cheering one another as they fled.
Mbh.12.165.9881 Strewn with the fallen bodies of Danavas covered with blood, the earth looked as if overspread with mountain summits overgrown with Kinsukas.
Mbh.12.165.9883 Having slain the Danavas and re-established Righteousness on earth, the auspicious Rudra cast off his awful form and assumed his own beneficent shape.
Mbh.12.165.9885 The divine Rudra, after this, gave the sword, that protector of religion, dyed with the blood of Danavas, unto Vishnu with due adorations.
Mbh.12.178.10727 O best of Danavas, death comes in season unto even the strongest of winged creatures which range the sky.
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.12.206.12482 From this slaughter, O son, of the Asura named Madhu, all the gods and the Danavas and men came to call that foremost of all righteous persons by the name of Madhusudana slayer of Madhu
Mbh.12.206.12501 The Danavas were vanquished.
Mbh.12.206.12503 Danu gave birth to the Danavas having Viprachitti for their foremost.
Mbh.12.208.12607 In former days, the principal Danavas, endued with wrath and cupidity, and mighty Asuras numbering by hundreds and drunk with might, and innumerable other Danavas that were invincible in battle, became exceedingly jealous of the unrivalled prosperity of the gods.
Mbh.12.208.12608 Oppressed at last by the Danavas, the gods and the celestial Rishis, failing to obtain peace, fled away in all directions.
Mbh.12.208.12610 Overspread with mighty Danavas of terrible mien, the earth seemed to be oppressed with a heavy weight.
Mbh.12.208.12612 The Adityas, struck with fear, repaired to Brahman, and addressing him, said, How, O Brahman, shall we continue to bear these oppressions of the Danavas'
Mbh.12.208.12615 That Supreme Deity, rushing to the spot whither those wretches among Danavas, of terrible aspect, are dwelling in thousands below the earth, will slay them all'
Mbh.12.208.12621 Those foremost of Danavas, of huge bodies, possessed of mighty energy, swelling with strength, succeeded not, however, O monarch, in doing anything to that Boar.
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.12.208.12630 The Danavas, terrified by that sound, began to fall down lifeless, paralysed by the energy of Vishnu.
Mbh.12.208.12640 With the energy of this sound or of its maker, the gods and the Danavas have all been deprived of their senses'
Mbh.12.208.12643 Of huge body and great strength, he cometh here, having slain the foremost ones among the Danavas.
Mbh.12.222.13485 What, O lord of Danavas, was the state of thy mind then and what is it now?
Mbh.12.223.13581 I was the worshipped lord of the Danavas.
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.12.226.13774 Seeing the prince of Danavas, he approached him.
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.12.227.14025 What didst thou see there for which thou hast come hither, having deserted the Daityas and the Danavas'
Mbh.12.227.14028 Formerly, the Danavas used to keep their abodes clean, to keep their women under control, to pour libations on the sacrificial fire, to wait dutifully on their preceptors, to restrain their passions, to be obedient to the Brahmanas, and to be truthful in speech.
Mbh.12.227.14061 In consequence of the Danavas having been distinguished for these good qualities, I dwelt with them from the beginning of the creation for many yugas together.
Mbh.12.227.14062 Times were altered, and that alteration brought about an alteration in the character of the Danavas.
Mbh.12.227.14083 Disregarding children that only looked on, and without having fed their dependants, the Danavas ate what they had.
Mbh.12.278.17066 Recapitulated by me, O lion among kings, listen with undivided attention, O bull of men, with all thy brothers, to what the sage Usanas then said after he had been thus addressed by that prince of Danavas
Mbh.12.279.17068 I shall speak to thee of the pre-eminent greatness of that Vishnu whose head, O best of the Danavas, is that Infinite place called Emancipation'
Mbh.12.279.17071 After Kumara of great wisdom had been seated at his ease, Usanas said unto him, Discourse to this chief of the Danavas on the pre-eminent greatness of Vishnu'
Mbh.12.279.17072 Hearing these words, Sanatkumara uttered the following, fraught with grave import, upon the pre-eminent greatness of Vishnu unto the intelligent chief of the Danavas, Listen, O Daitya, to everything about the greatness of Vishnu.
Mbh.12.279.17105 O best of Danavas, the Planets are in the midst of His brows.
Mbh.12.279.17144 Hence, White, O prince of Danavas, leads to success or Emancipation.
Mbh.12.281.17300 Having slain Vritra, Maghavat, that foe of the Danavas, possessed of great fame, entered heaven with that thunderbolt pervaded by Vishnu.
Mbh.12.283.17462 The gods, the Danavas, the Gandharvas, the Pisachas, the Snakes, the Rakshasas, the two Gandharvas named Haha and Huhu, Tumvuru and Narada, Viswavasu, Viswasena, the Gandharvas and the Apsaras, the Adityas, the Vasus, the Rudras, the Sadhyas, the Maruts, all came there with Indra for sharing in the Sacrifice.
Mbh.12.284.17577 Thou art adored by both gods and Danavas.
Mbh.12.284.17829 With the aid of arguments addressed to reason the deities and the Danavas have extracted from the Vedas consisting of six branches and from the system of Sankhya and Yoga a creed in consequence of which they have practised the austerest penances for many long years.
Mbh.12.289.18143 Why were the Danavas always engaged in hostilities with the foremost of the deities?
Mbh.12.290.18219 The deities, the Gandharvas and the Danavas have become what they are in consequence of their own nature and not of their acts of past lives.
Mbh.12.302.19045 Indeed, O king a combination of those is known as such in deities and men and Danavas, and Yakshas and spirits and Gandharvas and Kinnaras and great snakes, and Charanas and Pisachas, in celestial Rishis and Rakshasas, in biting flies, and worms, and gnats, and vermin born of filth and rats, and dogs and Swapakas and Chaineyas and Chandalas and Pukkasas in elephants and steeds and asses and tigers, and trees and kine.
Mbh.12.327.20812 There is a fiery girdle all around it, of the width of ten Yojanas, and it is incapable of being approached by Yakshas and Rakshasas and Danavas.
Mbh.12.331.21212 I declare unto all creatures, unto these trees, these elephants, these mountains, the Earth herself, the several points of the compass, the welkin, the deities, the Danavas, the Gandharvas, the Pisachas, the Uragas, and the Rakshasas, that I shall, verily, enter all creatures in the world
Mbh.12.336.21616 Both the Deities and the Danavas worship Him,
Mbh.12.339.21933 As regards Vali, that foremost of Danavas, who is to be unslayable by all the deities, I shall cause him to dwell in the nether regions.
Mbh.12.339.21941 There, after slaying innumerable Danavas that will be thorns in the side of the deities, I shall take up my residence in Kusasthali at the city of Dwaraka.
Mbh.12.339.21942 While residing in that city I shall slay the Asura Naraka, the son of the Earth, him, that is, who will do an injury to Aditi, as also some other Danavas of the names of Muru and Pitha.
Mbh.12.339.21943 Slaying also another foremost of Danavas, viz, the lord of Pragjyotisha, I shall transplant his delightful city furnished with diverse kinds of wealth into Dwaraka.
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.12.347.23030 The two mighty Danavas, having seized the eternal Vedas, quickly dived into the ocean of waters which they saw and proceeded to its bottom.
Mbh.12.347.23037 All the Vedas, however, have been forcibly taken away from me by the two Danavas.
Mbh.12.347.23112 The two Danavas Madhu and Kaitabha, not finding the person from whom those sounds proceeded, quickly came back to that spot.
Mbh.12.347.23118 Beholding the Lord thus lying, the two foremost of Danavas roared out a loud laugh.
Mbh.12.347.23126 Why is he thus asleep on the hood of a snake: Uttering these words, the two Danavas awakened Hari from his Yoga-slumber.
Mbh.12.347.23127 The foremost of Beings, viz, Narayana, thus awakened, understood that the two Danavas intended to have an encounter with him in battle.
Mbh.12.347.23136 It was thus that Narayana, having assumed the form equipt with the horse-head, slew the two Danavas Madhu and Kaitabha and disappeared from the sight of Brahma.
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.13.14.1078 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.13.14.1516 The Vidyadharas, the Danavas, the Guhyakas, the Rakshasas, and all created beings, mobile and immobile, adorned, in thought, word and deed, that puissant Lord.
Mbh.13.17.2776 Danavas and Yakshas and Rakshasas and Pisachas and Yatudhanas and Guhyakas and snakes can do no injury to him
Mbh.13.18.2881 Vishnu said, O Great King, Aditya, Chandra, Wind, Fire, Heaven, Earth, the Vasus, the Viswedevas, Dhatri, Aryyaman, Sukra, Vrihaspati, the Rudras, the Saddhyas, Varuna, Brahma, Sakra, Maruts, the Upanishads that deal with knowledge of Brahman, Truth, the Vedas, the Sacrifices, Sacrificial Presents, Brahmanas reciting the Vedas, Soma, Sacrificer, the shares of the deities in sacrificial offerings or clarified butter poured in sacrifices, Raksha, Diksha, all kinds of restraints in the form of vows and fasts and rigid observances, Swaha, Vashat, the Brahmanas, the celestial cow, the foremost acts of righteousness, the wheel of Time, Strength, Fame, Self-restraint, the Steadiness of all persons endued with intelligence, all acts of goodness and the reverse, the seven Rishis, Understanding of the foremost order, all kinds of excellent touch, the success of all religious acts, the diverse tribes of the deities, those beings that drink heat, those that are drinkers of Soma, Clouds, Suyamas, Rishitas, all creatures having Mantras for their bodies, Abhasuras, those beings that live upon scents only, those that live upon vision only, those that restrain their speech, those that restrain their minds, those that are pure, those that are capable of assuming diverse forms through Yoga-puissance, those deities that live on touch as their food, those deities that subsist on vision and those that subsist upon the butter poured in sacrifices, those beings that are competent to create by fiats of their will the objects they require, they that are regarded as the foremost ones among the deities, and all the other deities, O descendant of Ajamila, the Suparnas, the Gandharvas, the Pisachas, the Danavas, Yakshas, the Charanas, the snakes, all that is gross and all that is exceedingly subtile, all that is soft and all that is not subtile, all sorrows and all joys, all sorrows that come after joy and all joy that comes after sorrow, the Sankhya philosophy, Yoga, and that which transcends objects which are regarded as foremost and very superior, all adorable things, all the deities, and all the protectors of the universe who entering into the physical forces sustain and uphold this ancient creation of that illustrious Deity, have sprung from that Creator of all creatures.

Mbh.13.150.12697 Verily, having acquired them again from Vasishtha, Sakra and the Vasus went forth to battle and succeeded in subjugating the Danavas.
Mbh.13.155.12926 Indeed, O Chief of the Haihayas, all the religious acts and observances of human beings also were suspended by the Danavas.
Mbh.13.155.12930 They then, O King, said these words unto that high-souled one, We have been defeated by the Danavas in battle and have, therefore, fallen off from affluence and prosperity.
Mbh.13.155.12932 Thus informed of the plight to which the deities had been reduced, Agastya became highly incensed with the Danavas.
Mbh.13.155.12934 With the blazing rays that then emanated from the Rishi, the Danavas began to be burnt.
Mbh.13.155.12936 Burning with the energy of Agastya, the Danavas, abandoning both heaven and earth, fled towards the southern direction.
Mbh.13.155.12943 Even thus, O king, were the Danavas consumed by the illustrious Rishi with his own energy.
Mbh.13.155.12953 Meanwhile, seeing the gods reduced and emaciated in consequence of the Diksha they were undergoing, a race of Danavas, of the name of Khalins, of statures as gigantic as mountains, desired to slay them.
Mbh.13.155.12954 Those amongst the Danavas that were either disabled or slain in the fight were plunged into the waters of the Manasa lake and in consequence of the boon of the Grandsire they instantly came back to vigour and life.
Mbh.13.155.12957 Afflicted by the Danavas, the gods then sought the protection of their chief, Vasava-Sakra, however, was soon afflicted by them.
Mbh.13.155.12961 He put forth his energy and burnt, without any exertion, those Danavas called Khalins.
Mbh.13.155.12966 The place whereon those Danavas fell came to be called after them.
Mbh.13.155.12967 Even thus were the denizens of Heaven, with Indra at their head, rescued from great distress by Vasishtha, It was thus that those Danavas, who had received boons from Brahman, were slain by that high-souled Rishi.
Mbh.13.156.12974 Once on a time as the gods and Danavas were fighting each other in the dark, Rahu pierced both Surya and Soma with his arrows.
Mbh.13.156.12975 The gods, overwhelmed by darkness, began to fall before the mighty Danavas, O foremost of kings!
Mbh.13.157.13084 The gods, having assembled together in battle, slew many of the Danavas.
Mbh.13.158.13157 Agitating all the Danavas and the Asuras, this Krishna of foremost feats rescued the earth.
Mbh.14.3.66 It is through sacrifices that the high-souled celestials had waxed so wondrously powerful; and having celebrated rites did they vanquish the Danavas.
Mbh.14.9.268 I have banished the Kalakeyas to the earth, and removed the Danavas from heaven, and have terminated the existence of Prahlada in heaven.
Mbh.14.9.275 Then, O slayer of Danavas, overcome with fear of the monster, with thy hands clasped in supplication, thou didst seek the protection of the great sage.
Mbh.14.26.1026 Having repaired to one teacher, and having been instructed refined by one word, the snakes, the deities, the Rishis, and the Danavas, all betook themselves to diverse different dispositions.
Mbh.14.43.1739 He is the ruler of men and Kinnaras and Yakshas and Gandharvas, and Snakes and Rakshasas, and deities and Danavas and Nagas.
Mbh.14.44.1838 Iswara is the supreme Lord of all the deities and Danavas and ghostly beings and Pisachas, and snakes and Makshasas and human beings and Kinnaras and Yakshas.
Mbh.15.31.1263 Gandharvas and Apsaras, and Pisachas and Guhyakas and Rakshasas, many persons of great sanctity, many individuals crowned with success of penances, celestial Rishis, deities and Danavas and heavenly Rishis of spotless character, met with death on the battle-field of Kurukshetra
