MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.211.10371 The celestials knowing they were coming and acquainted also with the boons granted unto them by the Supreme Deity left heaven and sought refuge in the region of Brahman.
Mbh.1.211.10382 Even those Rishis on earth that were crowned with ascetic success, and had their passions under complete control and were wholly engrossed in meditation of the Deity, from fear of the Asura brothers, fled like snakes at the approach of Vinata's son Garuda the snake-eater.
Mbh.1.213.10459 The Supreme Deity, before Tilottama spoke, desirous of granting her a boon, cheerfully said, O beautiful damsel, thou shalt roam in the region of the Adityas.
Mbh.1.215.10520 Followed by Brahmanas conversant with the Vedas and their branches and devoted to the contemplation of the Supreme Spirit, by persons skilled in music, by ascetics devoted to the Deity, by reciters of Puranas, by narrators of sacred stories by devotees leading celibate lives, by Vanaprasthas, by Brahmanas sweetly reciting celestial histories, and by various other classes of persons of sweet speeches, Arjuna journeyed like Indra followed by the Maruts.
Mbh.1.224.11010 Approaching the great Deity seated on his seat, Agni said, O exalted one, Swetaki hath by his sacrifice gratified me to excess.
Mbh.1.224.11023 Hearing the words that fell from the lips of the Supreme Deity, Hutasana proceeded with great speed and soon reached the forest of Khandava in great vigour.
Mbh.2.10.410 The son of Pulastya Kuvera formerly used always to worship in all the modes and sit, with permission obtained, beside the god of gods, Siva, the creator of the three worlds, that supreme Deity surrounded by his attendants.
Mbh.2.11.434 In that mansion O king, the Supreme Deity, the Grand-sire of all created things, having himself created everything by virtue of his creative illusion, stayeth ever.
Mbh.2.11.437 Wealth and Religion and Desire, and Joy, and Aversion, and Asceticism and Tranquillity, all wait together upon the Supreme Deity in that palace.
Mbh.2.11.439 viz, Rig, Sama, Yajuh, and Atharva; all Sciences and branches of learning; Histories and all minor branches of learning; the several branches of the Vedas; the planets, the Sacrifices, the Soma, all the deities; Savitri Gayatri, the seven kinds of rhyme; Understanding, Patience, Memory, Wisdom, Intelligence, Fame, Forgiveness; the Hymns of the Sama Veda; the Science of hymns in general, and various kinds of Verses and Songs; various Commentaries with arguments, all in their personified forms, O king, and various Dramas and Poems and Stories and abridged Glosses, these also, and many others wait upon the Supreme Deity in that Sabha, Kshanas, Lavas, Muhurtas, Day, Night, Fortnights, Months, the six Seasons, O Bharata, Years, Yugas, the four kinds of Days and Nights viz, appearing to man, to the Pitris, to the gods, and to Brahma and that eternal, indestructible, undeteriorating, excellent Wheel of Time and also the Wheel of Virtue, these always wait there.
Mbh.2.11.446 All these tribes of Pitris wait upon the Lord of the creation and cheerfully worship the Supreme Deity of immeasurable energy.
Mbh.2.11.452 And all the dwellers in heaven repairing thither behold the Supreme Deity when they please, and worshipping him with a bow of their head return whence they came.
Mbh.2.12.460 And so the Yakshas, the Guhyakas, the Rakshasas, the Gandharvas and Apsaras and the Deity Yama having the bull for his vehicle, are to be found in the Sabha of the lord of treasures.
Mbh.3.90.4893 In that spot are the celestial Rishis, the Siddhas, and, indeed, all the Rishis, where dwelleth the slayer of Madhu, that primeval Deity and mighty Yogin!
Mbh.3.131.6653 Do thou not withhold from me that which hath been appointed by the Deity for my food, under the impression that thereby thou servest the interests of virtue, whereas in reality, thou wilt forsake it, by committing thyself to this act.
Mbh.3.141.7208 O child, in days of yore, there was once a terrible time in the Krita Yuga when the eternal and primeval Deity assumed the duties of Yama.
Mbh.3.187.9421 I then, in thought and deed sought the protection of that boon-giving and pre-eminent Deity, duly acknowledging his superiority.
Mbh.3.188.9441 SECTION CLXXXVIII Markandeya continued, The Deity then said, O Brahmana, the gods even do not know me truly!
Mbh.3.188.9497 Markandeya continued, Having said so unto me that wonderful Deity vanished, O son, from my sight!
Mbh.3.188.9500 And the Deity, of eyes large as lotus leaves, seen by me, in days of yore is this tiger among men, this Janardana who hath become thy relative!
Mbh.3.200.10311 And beholding the Deity, the Rishi in all humility began to gratify him with many hymns, and Utanka said, O thou of great effulgence all creatures with the gods, Asuras and human beings, all things that are mobile or immobile, even Brahma himself, the Vedas, and all things that are capable of being known, have, O lord, been created by thee!
Mbh.3.202.10397 He who is the Source and Creator of the Universe, viz, the Eternal and unfading Vishnu, He who is called by Munis crowned with ascetic success as the Supreme Lord of the Universe, that Being of great holiness, then lay in Yoga sleep on the wide hood of the Snake Sesha of immeasurable energy, and the Creator of the Universe, that highly-blessed and holy Hari, knowing no deterioration, lay on the hood of that Snake encircling the whole Earth and as the Deity lay asleep on that bed, a lotus, endued with great beauty and effulgence equal unto that of the Sun, sprang from his navel.
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.3.202.10404 O thou that art the Supreme Deity, we are disposed to grant thee a boon.
Mbh.3.202.10413 Hearing these words of the Deity, both Madhu and Kaitabha said, We have never before spoken an untruth; no, not even in jest; what shall we say of other occasions!
Mbh.3.202.10423 Let not that O Deity, be false which thou hadst at first promised to us'
Mbh.3.202.10426 Markandeya continued, Then Govinda began to reflect but uncovered space found he none and when he could not discover any spot that was uncovered on earth or in the sky, that foremost Deity then beheld his thighs to be absolutely uncovered.
Mbh.3.202.10427 And there, O king, the illustrious Deity cut off the heads of Madhu and Kaitabha with his keenedged discus
Mbh.3.203.10433 And thus addressed by the Grandsire, the Danava placed the feet of the Deity on his head and having thus touched with reverence the Deity's feet he went away and possessed of mighty energy and prowess.
Mbh.3.203.10434 Dhundhu, having obtained the boon hastily approached Vishnu remembering the death of his father at the hands of that Deity, and the wrathful Dhundhu having vanquished the gods with the Gandharvas began to distress all the celestials with Vishnu at their head.
Mbh.3.205.10531 O best of Brahmanas, I practise that virtue which consists in serving my husband whom I regard as the highest Deity.
Mbh.3.206.10691 These men who believe in the existence of the Deity, who are free from false pride, and versed in holy writ, and who respect regenerate twice-born men, go to heaven.
Mbh.3.207.10710 The Deity takes away life, the executioner acts only as a secondary agent.
Mbh.4.1.5 And, O Brahman, how did the highly blessed Draupadi, stricken with woe, devoted to her lords, and ever adoring the Deity, spend her days unrecognised
Mbh.4.2.54 What office will be performed by Arjuna who, dwelling for five years in the abode of the thousand-eyed Deity Indra shining in celestial lustre, acquired by his own energy the science of superhuman arms with all celestial weapons, and whom I regard as the tenth Rudra, the thirteenth Aditya, the ninth Vasu, and the tenth Graha, whose arms, symmetrical and long, have the skin hardened by constant strokes of the bowstring and cicatrices which resemble those on the humps of bulls, that foremost of warriors who is as Himavat among mountains, the ocean among expanses of water, Sakra among the celestial, Havya-vaha fire among the Vasus, the tiger among beasts, and Garuda among feathery tribes
Mbh.5.10.398 Thou art the God, the mighty Deity, saluted by all persons.
Mbh.6.66.3624 SECTION LXVI Bhishma said, Then that illustrious Deity, the Lord of the worlds, replied unto Brahma in a soft deep voice, saying, Through Yoga, O sire, all that is wished by thee is known to me.
Mbh.7.40.1994 That illustrious Deity, always inspired with compassion for his devotees, at last, became kind towards him.
Mbh.7.50.2373 When Sthanu fell at Brahma's feet from a desire of doing good to all creatures, the Supreme Deity to that greatest of ascetics, blazing with splendour, said, What wish of thine shall we accomplish, O thou that deservest to have all thy wishes fulfilled?
Mbh.7.51.2406 And while the Supreme Deity exterminated that fire born of his wrath, there came out from the doors of his diverse senses a female who was dark and red and tawny, whose tongue and face and eyes were red, and who was decked with two brilliant ear-rings and diverse other brilliant ornaments.
Mbh.7.52.2444 And upon that, invincible and illustrious Lord having shaken off his wrath, that damsel left the presence of that wise Deity.
Mbh.7.78.3468 And Arjuna repeatedly adored that Deity, knowing that he was the origin of all creatures and the cause of the past, the future, and the present.
Mbh.7.198.11286 When by those austerities, O sire, he became: like Brahma he then beheld the Master, Origin, and Guardian of the Universe, the Lord of all the gods, the Supreme Deity, who is exceedingly difficult of being gazed at, who is minuter than the minutest and larger than, the largest, who is called Rudra who is the lord of all the superior ones, who is called Hara and Sambhu, who has matted locks on his head, who is the infuser of life into every form, who is the First cause of all immobile: and mobile things, who is irresistible and of frightful aspect, who is of fierce wrath and great Soul, who is the All-destroyer, and of large heart; who beareth the celestial bow and a couple of quivers, who is cased in golden armour, and whose energy is infinite, who holdeth Pinaka, who is; armed with thunderbolt, a blazing trident, battle axe, mace, and a large sword; whose eye-brows are fair, whose locks are matted, who wieldeth the heavy short club, who hath the moon on his forehead, who is clad in tiger-skin, and who is armed with the bludgeon; who is decked with beautiful angadas, who hath snakes for his sacred thread, and who is surrounded by diverse creatures of the universe and by numerous ghosts and spirits, who is the One, who is the abode of ascetic austerities, and who is highly adored by persons of venerable age; who is Water, Heaven, Sky, Earth, Sun, Moon, Wind and Fire, and who is the measure of the duration of the universe.
Mbh.7.199.11349 O, seek the protection of that boon, giving Deity, that lord of the universe.
Mbh.7.199.11350 He is called Mahadeva the Supreme Deity, of Supreme Soul, the one only Lord, with matted locks on head, the abode of auspiciousness.
Mbh.7.199.11352 That boon-giving lord of the universe, that Supreme Deity, is also called Hara and Sthanu.
Mbh.7.199.11367 That Supreme Deity, called Mahadeva, is worshipped by followers that are even such.
Mbh.7.199.11369 In that fierce battle, O Partha, making the very hair stand on end, who else, O Arjuna, than the divine Maheswara, that foremost of all bowmen, that Deity of divine form, could even in imagination venture to vanquish that force which was protected by those great smiters and bowmen, viz, Aswatthaman and Karna and Kripa?
Mbh.7.199.11494 Many also are the names, of truthful import, of this Deity in all the worlds.
Mbh.7.199.11541 The person who always attentively reads or listens to the recitation of this excellent and auspicious account, appertaining to battle, of the illustrious Deity, and he worships with devotion that illustrious Lord of the universe, obtaineth all the objects of desire, in consequence of the three-eyed God being gratified with him.
Mbh.8.33.1586 The illustrious Deity, hearing the words of Indra, told the gods, He that is an offender against you offends against me also.
Mbh.8.33.1598 Hearing these words of his, the gods with Sakra at their head, making Brahman take their lead, sought the protection of the Deity having the bull for his mark.
Mbh.8.33.1602 Though that Deity is one they had imagined him to be of various forms.
Mbh.8.34.1617 SECTION Duryodhana said, After the fears of those throngs of the pitris, the gods, and the Rishis had thus been dispelled by that high-souled Deity, Brahman then offered his adorations, unto Sankara, and said these words for the benefit of the universe, Through thy favour, O Lord of all, the Lordship of all creatures is mine.
Mbh.8.34.1677 Seeing the energies of the entire universe united together in one place, O sire, the gods wondered, and at last represented unto that illustrious Deity that the car was ready.
Mbh.8.34.1699 The gods, O king, then commanded that foremost of celestials, viz, Wind, to breathe after that puissant Deity all the fragrance that he carries.
Mbh.8.34.1706 Hearing these words uttered by that high-souled Deity, the gods repaired unto the Grandsire and inclining him to grace, said these words, We have accomplished everything, O holy one, that thou hadst ordered us to do in the matter of afflicting the foes of celestials.
Mbh.8.34.1707 The Deity having the bull for his mark has been gratified with us.
Mbh.8.34.1715 The Deity armed with Pinaka hath been made the warrior who is to stand on it.
Mbh.8.34.1734 Having ascended the car the illustrious Deity, viz, the Grandsire resplendent with his own energy, took the reins and the goad.
Mbh.8.34.1739 The great Deity once more said unto the gods headed by Indra, Ye should never grieve, doubting my ability to destroy the Asura.
Mbh.8.34.1745 And the illustrious Deity was adored, all the while by the attendants that always wait upon him, and by others that subsisted on meat, that were invincible in battle, and that danced in joy on the present occasion, running wildly on all sides and shouting at one another, Rishis also, of great good fortune, possessed of ascetic merit and endued with high qualities, as also the gods, wished for Mahadeva's success.
Mbh.8.34.1763 During the time the car had sunk and the foe had began to roar, the illustrious Deity, endued with great might began, from rage, to utter loud shouts, standing, O giver of honours, on the head of his bull and the back of his steeds.
Mbh.8.34.1772 The triple city then appeared immediately before that god of unbearable energy, that Deity of fierce and indescribable form, that warrior who was desirous of slaying the Asuras.
Mbh.8.34.1780 Thus that illustrious Deity, that Creator of the worlds, that Lord of both the Gods and the Asuras, viz, Maheswara, did that which was for the good of all the worlds.
Mbh.8.34.1781 As the illustrious Brahman, the Creator of the worlds, the Grandsire, the Supreme Deity of unfading glory, acted as the driver of Rudra, so do thou restrain the steeds of the high-souled son of Radha like Grandsire restraining those of Rudra.
Mbh.8.35.1844 SECTION Duryodhana said, Even thus did that illustrious Deity, that Grandsire of all the worlds, viz, Brahman, act as driver on that occasion and even thus did Rudra become the warrior.
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.12.264.16058 The leaves and flowers of such trees as have been indicated in the Vedas, whatever act is regarded as worthy and whatever else is held as pure by persons of pure hearts and cleansed natures and those eminent for knowledge and holiness, are all worthy of being offered to the Supreme Deity and not unworthy of His acceptance
Mbh.12.279.17159 Having attained to that end viz, Humanity and having been afflicted for the duration of one creation by the bonds born of his own acts, Jiva then attains to the colours called Yellow or becomes a Deity.
Mbh.12.279.17204 Bhishma said, The Highest Deity, endued with the six attributes of puissance, etc
Mbh.12.283.17558 It is preferable to incur even the wrath of that foremost of gods than to obtain boons from any other Deity'
Mbh.12.285.17880 Having created these, the Supreme Deity, O Bharata, united with them Sattwa, Rajas, Tamas, Time, Consciousness of functions, and Mind forming the sixth
Mbh.12.336.21605 That great Deity is incapable of being ever seen by one that is destitute of devotion.
Mbh.12.336.21606 Incapable of being seen in consequence of his dazzling effulgence, that illustrious Deity can be beheld by only those persons that in course of long ages succeed in devoting themselves wholly and solely to Him.
Mbh.12.336.21610 Having heard these wonderful words that were sweet as nectar, we soon got back to the place we desired, through the grace of that great Deity.
Mbh.12.336.21611 When with the aid of even such austere penances and of offerings devoutly given in sacrifices, we failed to have a sight of the great Deity, how, indeed, can you expect to behold Him so easily?
Mbh.12.339.21792 Bearing these diverse kinds of hues on his person, the eternal Deity appeared before Narada.
Mbh.12.339.21798 With mind under complete control, the great Deity, called by the names of Hari and Narayana, by his other mouths, multitudinous in number, uttered many mantras from the four Vedas which are known by the name of Aranyaka.
Mbh.12.340.22023 Then, again, Brahman, and Rudra, the puissant Sakra the slayer of Vala, Surya, Chandramas the Lord of the stars, the Wind-god, the Deity of fire, the Deity of the Waters, Infinite Space as living Being, the Universe too as a conscious agent, and the rest of the denizens of heaven, they, it seems, are ignorant of the way of securing annihilation of conscious existence, that is capable of being brought about by self-realisation
Mbh.12.340.22166 After the Rishis and denizens of heaven had left that place, Brahman remained there, desirous of beholding the great Deity eminent in the form of Aniruddha.
Mbh.12.340.22169 Beholding the great Deity of immeasurable energy in that form crowned with an equine head, the puissant Brahman, the Creator of all the worlds.
Mbh.12.340.22172 The great Deity embraced Brahman and then told him these words.
Mbh.12.340.22180 It is for this, O blessed one, that the eternal Deity, with the lotus in his navel, became the acceptor of the first share offered in sacrifices and hence it is that He came to be called as the eternal upholder of all Sacrifices.
Mbh.12.340.22193 The supreme Deity, who is immutable, pervadeth all things.
Mbh.12.340.22200 Our preceptor, with ourselves, O king, then adored the great Deity with Richs extracted from the four Vedas.
Mbh.12.340.22214 Hearing these words of the great Rishi, fraught with certainty of conclusion, and embodying a recital of the attributes of that high-souled one who is the foremost of all beings, hearing this narrative of the great conclave of Rishis and other denizens of heaven, men who are devoted to the supreme Deity derive great happiness
Mbh.12.343.22806 They are always engaged in worshipping that great Deity, and the latter always sports with them.
Mbh.12.343.22824 Whatever rites and religious acts are performed by persons whose souls are entirely devoted to him, are all received by that great Deity on his head.
Mbh.12.344.22863 We are thus engaged, O regenerate one, being moved by the desire of benefiting those manifestations of the Supreme Deity, dear to all the celestials, that will occur in the three worlds for achieving diverse feats that are incapable of being achieved by any other Being.
Mbh.12.344.22871 Worshipping the Supreme Deity Narayana, and adoring those two ancient Rishis also that had taken birth in the house of Dharma, the illustrious Rishi Narada, endued with great energy, continued to reside, thus employed, in that retreat, called Vadari, on the breast of Himavat, belonging to Nara and Narayana, for a thousand years as measured by the standard of the celestials
Mbh.12.345.22880 It is from that Supreme Deity that Brahma, the Grandsire of all the worlds, took his rise in days of yore.
Mbh.12.347.22978 I have heard also of the birth of the Supreme Deity in the house of Dharma, in the form of Nara and Narayana.
Mbh.12.347.22979 I have also heard from thee the origin of the Pinda from the mighty Baraha Boar which form the supreme Deity had assumed for raising by the submerged Earth.
Mbh.12.347.22988 O thou of foremost intelligence, for what reason did he supreme Deity assume that form and display himself in it unto Brahman?
Mbh.12.347.23143 Whatever forms, the Supreme Deity desires to assume with a view to ordaining the various affairs of the universe, he assumes those forms immediately within himself by exercise of his own inherent powers.
Mbh.12.347.23144 The Supreme Deity, endued with every prosperity, is the receptacle of the Vedas.
Mbh.12.347.23163 The presiding deities of Fame, of Beauty, and of Prosperity have the same Supreme Deity for their soul.
Mbh.12.349.23438 The Supreme Deity, called by the name of Hari, resides in the hearts of those that have succeeded with the aid of the scriptures and of inference in dispelling all doubts.
Mbh.13.14.959 Projecting into existence and withdrawing once more unto himself all things fraught with good and evil, that inconceivable Deity whom thou seekest, O destroyer of foes, lives here with his spouse.
Mbh.13.14.1184 Upamanyu said, I solicit boons from that great Deity named Siva whom utterers of Brahma has described as existent and non-existent, manifest and unmanifest, eternal or immutable, one and many.
Mbh.13.14.1442 The illustrious Deity said, Be thou free from every misery and pain, and be thou above decrepitude and death.
Mbh.13.14.1458 I also obtained all that was said by the great Deity endued with supreme intelligence.
Mbh.13.14.1462 O thou of mighty arms, all these are endued with a celestial nature through the grace of that god of gods, that Supreme Lord, that high-souled Deity'
Mbh.13.14.1470 Through the grace of that Deity endued with supreme wisdom, the Past, the Future and the Present are known to me.
Mbh.13.14.1472 Why will not the puissant Deity show favour to thee, O Mahadeva?
Mbh.13.14.1494 Verily, the great Deity seemed to shine with his penances, energy, beauty, effulgence, and his dear spouse by his side.
Mbh.13.14.1508 Eleven hundred Rudras stood around that Deity of restrained soul and white deeds, then seated upon his bull.
Mbh.13.14.1520 The great Deity then addressed me saying, Behold, O Krishna, and speak to me.
Mbh.13.14.1552 The innumerable Brahmanas there present, the deities and the Asuras, the Nagas, the Pisachas, the Pitris, the birds, diverse Rakshasas, diverse classes of ghosts and spirits, and all the great Rishis, then bowed down unto that great Deity.
Mbh.13.15.1561 SECTION XV The blessed Krishna said, Bowing my head with great joy unto that mass of energy and effulgence, I said these words unto the great Deity, with a heart filled with gladness, Firmness in virtue, the slaughter of foes in battle, the highest fame, the greatest might, devotion to Yoga, thy adjacence, and hundreds upon hundreds of children, these are the boons I solicit of thee, So be it, said Sankara repeating the words I had uttered.
Mbh.13.16.1585 After he had said these words, Tandi beheld before him that ocean of penances, that great Deity who is immutable and undeteriorating, who is without compare, who is inconceivable, who is eternal, and who is without any change, who is indivisible, who is whole, who is Brahma, who transcends all attributes, and who is endued with attributes, who is the highest delight of Yogins, who is without deterioration, who is called Emancipation, who is the refuge of the Mind, of Indra, of Agni, of the god of wind, of the entire universe, and of the Grandsire Brahma; who is incapable of being conceived by the Mind, who is without mutation of any kind, who is pure, who is capable of being apprehended by understanding only and who is immaterial as the Mind; who is difficult of comprehension, who is incapable of being measured, who is difficult of being attained by persons of uncleansed souls, who is the origin of the universe, and who transcends both the universe and the attribute of darkness; who is ancient, who is Purusha, who is possessed of effulgence, and who is higher than the highest.
Mbh.13.16.1617 Alas, so long I was steeped in Ignorance; for this long period I was a senseless fool, since I had no knowledge of thee that art the Supreme Deity, thee that art the only eternal Entity as can be only known by all persons endued with wisdom.
Mbh.13.16.1704 Upamanyu continued, Thus praised by that utterer of Brahma, viz, Tandi, Mahadeva that illustrious and puissant Deity, who was accompanied by his spouse lima, said these words.
Mbh.13.16.1716 Upamanyu continued, Having given unto Tandi these boons and having received the adorations of both the deities and the Rishis, the great Deity disappeared there and then.
Mbh.13.16.1722 O thou that transcendest destruction, in days of yore, the Grandsire Brahma uttered these names for adoring the high-souled Deity.
Mbh.13.17.1726 Upamanyu said, I shall adore that great Deity who deserves the adorations of all creatures, by uttering those names that are celebrated over all the worlds, names some of which were uttered by the Grandsire Brahma, some by the Rishis, and some of which occur in the Vedas and the Vedangas.
Mbh.13.17.1727 Those names have been applied unto the great Deity by persons that are eminent.
Mbh.13.17.1736 Thou art a devoted worshipper of the Supreme Deity.
Mbh.13.17.1740 Persons endued with Yoga; Yoga's achievements are unable to know in even a hundred years, the glory and puissance of the great Deity in their entirety.
Mbh.13.17.1743 For all that, I shall through the grace of that illustrious and supreme Deity of perfect wisdom, extended to me for my devotion to him, recite his attributes as embodied in an abstract of few words and letters.
Mbh.13.17.1746 I shall indicate only a few names of that great Deity who is without birth and without destruction, who is the original cause of the universe, who is endued with the highest Soul, and whose origin is unmanifest.
Mbh.13.17.2043 Thou art the Deity called Ansu.
Mbh.13.17.2069 Thou art the Deity that distributes unto all creatures the fruits in the form of joys and griefs of their acts.
Mbh.13.17.2167 Thou art in the form of the Deity of Righteousness, the distributor of the fruits that attach to acts good and bad.
Mbh.13.17.2371 Thou art the maker of the field of those actions by which persons adore the supreme Deity.
Mbh.13.17.2731 I have thus, O Krishna, hymned the praises of the illustrious Deity by reciting his names in the order of their importance.
Mbh.13.17.2733 Aided, however, by my devotion to him, and having received his permission, I have praised that Lord of sacrifices, that Deity of supreme puissance, that foremost of all creatures endued with intelligence.
Mbh.13.17.2743 It is through good luck alone that undivided devotion to Bhava who is the original cause of the universe fully springs up in the heart of one that is conversant with every mode of worshipping that great Deity
Mbh.13.17.2747 The illustrious Deity who is always inclined to extend his grace towards them that seek him with humility, and throw themselves with their whole soul upon him rescues them from the world.
Mbh.13.17.2748 Except the great Deity who frees creatures from rebirth, all other gods constantly nullify the penances of men, for men have no other source of puissance that is as great as these
Mbh.13.17.2749 It was even thus Tandi of tranquil soul, resembling Indra himself in splendour, praised the illustrious Lord of all existent and non-existent things, that great Deity clad in animal skins.
Mbh.13.18.2783 The illustrious Deity at last became gratified with me and gave me knowledge that is capable of aiding the acquirer in getting over rebirth,
Mbh.13.18.2791 I hymned the praises of the great Deity by reciting his names.
Mbh.13.18.2794 Even thus did the illustrious and crested Deity of auspicious form said unto me.
Mbh.13.18.2795 Through the grace of that Deity of supreme intelligence I obtained all that He had said.
Mbh.13.18.2797 I paid my adorations to Bhava with the desire of becoming a Brahmana Through the grace of that great Deity I succeeded in obtaining the high status of a Brahmana that is so difficult to obtain,
Mbh.13.18.2812 The great Deity said unto me, Thou shalt be freed from disease of every kind, and besides immortality shall be thine.
Mbh.13.18.2817 That illustrious Deity is incapable of being comprehended in thought, word, or deed.
Mbh.13.18.2820 Gratified with me, O Yudhishthira, the illustrious Deity said unto me, Thou shalt, O Krishna, through my grace, become dearer to all persons than wealth which is coveted by all.
Mbh.13.18.2825 Gratified with me, the illustrious Deity said unto me these words, Blessed be thou, do thou solicit boons as thou wishest.
Mbh.13.18.2843 Having said these words, the great Deity disappeared there and then.
Mbh.13.18.2854 Having said these words unto me, the adorable Deity having the bull for his vehicle, viz, Maheswara of unrivalled splendour and clad in animal skin, O king, disappeared there and then with all his associates'
Mbh.13.18.2861 Having obtained the permission of the illustrious Deity, I then repaired to my home, O Yudhishthira, and beheld my father, O son, coming out after having finished his daily sacrifice.
Mbh.13.18.2871 Their dispositions being stained by the attributes of Rajas and Tamas, they can never approach the Supreme Deity.
Mbh.13.18.2872 It is only those regenerate persons who are of cleansed souls that succeed in attaining to the Supreme Deity.
Mbh.13.18.2873 Even if a person lives in the enjoyment of every pleasure and luxury, yet if he be devoted to the Supreme Deity, he comes to be regarded as the equal of forest recluses of cleansed souls.
Mbh.13.18.2876 A person who raises houses to the ground and destroys tanks and lakes indeed, who devastates the whole universe, does not become stained with sin, if he adores and worships the illustrious Deity of three eyes.
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.13.19.2929 That delightful spot on the mountains, we have heard, is the favourite abode of the great Deity.
Mbh.13.19.2931 It was there that the goddess Uma practised the severest austerities for the sake of obtaining for her lord the three-eyed Deity.
