MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.95.5289 And Santanu married Ganga, who bore him a son Devavrata who was afterwards called Bhishma.
Mbh.1.99.5547 And that child of Santanu was named both Gangeya and Devavrata and excelled his father in all accomplishments.
Mbh.1.100.5576 And Santanu's son, the Vasu born of Ganga, named Devavrata resembled Santanu himself in personal beauty, in habits and behaviour, and in learning.
Mbh.1.100.5631 One day, Devavrata approaching his afflicted father said, All is prosperity with thee; all chiefs obey thee; then how is it that thou grievest thus?
Mbh.1.100.5653 Vaisampayana continued, Devavrata who was endued with great intelligence, having ascertained all this from the king, reflected within himself for a while.
Mbh.1.100.5656 Then Devavrata, accompanied by many Kshatriya chiefs of venerable age, personally repaired to the chief of the fishermen and begged of him his daughter on behalf of the king.
Mbh.1.100.5670 Vaisampayana continued, O thou of Bharata's race, Devavrata, having heard these words, and moved by the desire of benefiting his father thus answered in the hearing of the assembled chiefs, O foremost of truthful men, listen to the vow I utter!
Mbh.1.100.5685 Immediately after, the Apsaras and the gods with diverse tribes of Rishis began to rain down flowers from the firmament upon the head of Devavrata and exclaimed, This one is Bhishma the terrible'
Mbh.5.55.3045 O Bharata, his wrath excited, that best of the Kurus smote numberless ones amongst them, whereupon from fear, they are surrendered to this Devavrata seeking his protection.
Mbh.5.148.6628 And he said, O sire, as Pratipa's son, Santanu, was devoted to the welfare of his race, and as Devavrata, otherwise called Bhishma was devoted to the welfare of his race, so was the royal Pandu, that king of the Kurus, who was firmly devoted to truth, who had his passions under control, who was virtuous, of excellent vows, and attentive to all duties.
Mbh.5.148.6649 And Vidura said, O Devavrata, attend to the words I speak.
Mbh.5.148.6676 Observing the customs of our race and the rule with respect to our kingdom, we all fully accomplish that which this high-souled and wise chief of the Kurus, Devavrata, firmly adhering to truth, sayeth, Let this king Dhritarashtra and Vidura also, at the command of Bhishma of great vows, proclaim the same thing.
Mbh.6.14.778 Tell me all, O Sanjaya, for peace cannot be mine, hearing that Devavrata hath been slain, that father of mine, of terrible deeds, that ornament of battle, viz, Bhishma!
Mbh.6.17.843 Thy father Devavrata, fully conversant with every duty, summoning all the kings, said these words unto them.
Mbh.6.48.2460 And beholding the generalissimo Sweta smiting the Dhartarashtra divisions, thy father Bhishma, called also Devavrata, impetuously rushed against him.
Mbh.6.48.2492 Then thy sire Devavrata, yielding to anger, and beholding his own standard overthrown and the Dhartarashtra army checked, shot a great many arrows, O king, at Sweta.
Mbh.6.48.2501 Thy sire Devavrata then, O king, without the slightest fear, with eight sharp and winged arrows, cut off into nine fragments, that dart decked with pure gold and which seemed to be covered with flames of fire, as it coursed ablaze through the air.
Mbh.6.48.2520 Though baffled by Sweta, thy sire Devavrata then that mighty car-warrior quickly taking up another bow that resembled the bow of Sakra himself in splendour, stringed it in a moment.
Mbh.6.48.2523 But that mighty car-warrior, thy sire Devavrata, checking both Bhimasena and Abhimanyu and other car-warriors with terrible shafts, struck him with three straight arrows.
Mbh.6.48.2525 And checking all those great bowmen with terrible arrows, thy sire Devavrata advanced towards Sweta alone.
Mbh.6.52.2712 Thus addressed, O king, thy sire Devavrata, saying, Fie to Kshatriya usage, then proceeded towards Partha's car.
Mbh.6.54.2910 Thy sire Devavrata, however, in return pierced each of those mighty bowmen striving in battle with three straight shafts.
Mbh.6.54.2913 Thy sire Devavrata then, in that battle, cut off that dart in twain before it could reach him, and thereupon it fell down on the earth.
Mbh.6.55.2960 Thy sire Devavrata then, beholding the Kuru host routed, smilingly addressed the heroic son of Bharadwaja in the battle and said, This mighty and heroic son of Pandu, viz, Dhananjaya, accompanied by Krishna, is dealing with our troops as he alone is competent to deal with them.
Mbh.6.56.2971 And on the beak of that Garuda was thy sire Devavrata himself.
Mbh.6.59.3084 Sanjaya said, After the forenoon of that day, O Bharata, had passed away, and the sun in his westward course had passed a portion of his path, and after the high-souled Pandavas had won the victory, thy sire Devavrata, conversant with the distinction of all codes of morality, rushed carried by the fleetest steeds, towards the army of the Pandavas, protected by a large force and by all thy sons.
Mbh.6.69.3737 Then thy sire Devavrata, O great king, that foremost of car-warriors, proceeded in advance, supported by a large division of cars.
Mbh.6.74.3956 Then at twilight, O king, thy sire Devavrata, his animals having been tired, caused the troops to be withdrawn.
Mbh.6.75.3972 Then thy sire Devavrata, beholding the Pandava army thus arrayed, disposed his army, O king, in counter-array after the form of a huge crane.
Mbh.6.86.4526 That oath of thine thou dost not fulfil inasmuch as thou dost not slay Devavrata in battle.
Mbh.6.87.4570 Thy sire Devavrata then, thus surrounded on all sides, began to sport, O king, with his bow, felling all the while many mighty car-warriors.
Mbh.6.89.4659 Thy sire, Devavrata deprived their car-warriors of cars.
Mbh.6.89.4700 Hearing these cruel words of Duryodhana, thy sire Devavrata with eyes filled with tears, said this unto him
Mbh.6.95.5030 And although, O king, both myself and Devavrata cried out at the top of our voices, saying, Fight, do not fly away, all this is Rakshasa illusion in battle, applied by Ghatotkacha'
Mbh.6.102.5455 And similarly, O king, thy sire Devavrata in that battle approached Partha like Rahu approaching the sun
Mbh.6.104.5527 Thy sire Devavrata began to grind those troops like a herd of bulls grinding with their tread a heap of paddy sheaves.
Mbh.6.107.5737 Thy sire Devavrata took the lives of the hostile warriors like the Sun sucking with his rays the energies of all things during summer.
Mbh.6.108.5814 Therefore, O slayer of Madhu, all of us accompanied by thee, will once more repair unto Devavrata, for asking him about the means of his own death.
Mbh.6.108.5823 Bhishma, otherwise called Devavrata, is skilled in weapons.
Mbh.6.110.6002 Thus addressed by him, O king, thy sire Devavrata, the son of Santanu, reflecting for a moment and settling what he should do, said these words unto thy son, comforting him therewith, O Duryodhana, listen calmly to what I say, O king, O thou of great might, formerly I vowed before thee that slaying every day ten thousand high-souled Kshatriyas, I would come back from the battle.
Mbh.6.116.6300 thought thy mighty-armed sire Devavrata.
Mbh.6.118.6434 Disregarding those shafts, thy sire Devavrata began, with his shafts, to check the angry Arjuna only in that battle.
Mbh.6.121.6702 I cannot at all brook it that Devavrata should be slain in battle.
Mbh.6.123.6790 And ceasing to fight, putting aside their coats of mail, and lying aside their weapons, the Kurus and the Pandavas, united together, came to the invincible Devavrata, that chastiser of foes.
Mbh.7.1.4 Janamejaya said, Hearing that his sire Devavrata of unrivalled vigour and sturdiness, and might, energy and prowess, had been slain by Sikhandin, the prince of the Panchalas, what, indeed, O regenerate Rishi, did the powerful king Dhritarashtra with eyes bathed in tears do?
Mbh.7.1.14 Tell me, therefore, O Sanjaya, what the assembled kings did after Devavrata, that bull of Kura's race, had fallen'
Mbh.7.1.15 Sanjaya said, Listen, O king, with undivided attention, to me as I recite what thy sons did after Devavrata had been killed in battle.
Mbh.7.1.24 The Kurus, deprived of Devavrata, were filled with great anxiety, and resembled a herd of goats and sheep without a herdsman, in a forest abounding with beasts of prey.
Mbh.7.1.28 And the frightened kings and the common soldiers, no longer relying upon one another, of that army, deprived of Devavrata, seemed to sink into the nethermost region of the world.
Mbh.7.1.29 Then the Kauravas remembered Karna, who indeed, was equal to Devavrata himself.
Mbh.11.23.936 Of whom, O Madhava, will the Kurus enquire of religion and duty after that bull among men, Devavrata, who resembles a god, shall have gone to heaven?
Mbh.12.53.2833 SECTION LIV Janamejaya said, When that tiger among men, of righteous soul and great energy, firmly adhering to truth and with passions under complete control, viz, the son of Santanu and Ganga, named Devavrata or Bhishma of unfading glory, lay on a hero's bed with the sons of Pandu sitting around him, tell me, O great sage, what converse ensued in that meeting of heroes after the slaughter of the troops'
