MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.75.4159 And, O king, they were begotten upon his two wives Devayani and Sarmishtha.
Mbh.1.75.4160 And of Devayani were born Yadu and Turvasu, and of Sarmishtha were born Drahyu, Anu, and Puru.
Mbh.1.75.4164 To him his eldest son born of Devayani then said, What needest thou, O king?
Mbh.1.76.4196 I will tell thee, in reply to thy question, O Janamejaya, how both Sukra and Vrishaparvan bestowed upon him, with due rites, their daughters, and how his union took place with Devayani in special.
Mbh.1.76.4210 Thou canst also adore Devayani, the favourite daughter of that high-souled Brahmana.
Mbh.1.76.4213 By gratifying Devayani with thy conduct, liberality, sweetness, and general behaviour, thou canst certainly obtain that knowledge'
Mbh.1.76.4225 And, O Bharata, accepting the vow of which he had spoken, at the proper time, Kacha began to conciliate regardfully both his preceptor and his daughter Devayani.
Mbh.1.76.4227 And as he was young, by singing and dancing and playing on different kinds of instruments, he soon gratified Devayani who was herself in her youth.
Mbh.1.76.4228 And, O Bharata, with his whole heart set upon it, he soon gratified the maiden Devayani who was then a young lady, by presents of flowers and fruits and services rendered with alacrity.
Mbh.1.76.4229 And Devayani also with her songs and sweetness of manners used, while they were alone, to attend upon that youth carrying out his vow.
Mbh.1.76.4236 And Devayani, seeing the kine returned from the woods without Kacha, spoke, O Bharata, unto her father thus: Thy evening-fire hath been kindled.
Mbh.1.76.4255 On another occasion, asked by Devayani, the Brahmana Kacha went into the woods.
Mbh.1.76.4261 And Devayani again spoke unto her father, saying, O father, Kacha was sent to gather flowers.
Mbh.1.76.4268 O Devayani, do not grieve, do not cry.
Mbh.1.76.4272 To all this Devayani replied, Why shall I, O father, not grieve for him whose grandfather is old Angiras himself, whose father is Vrihaspati who is an ocean of ascetic merit, who is the grandson of a Rishi and the son also of a Rishi?
Mbh.1.76.4276 Vaisampayana continued, The great Rishi Kavya, then, afflicted by what Devayani said, cried in anger, Certainly, the Asuras seek to injure me, for they slay my disciple that stayeth with me.
Mbh.1.76.4280 Having said this, the Brahmana Sukra, urged by Devayani, began to summon Kacha who had entered the jaws of Death.
Mbh.1.76.4294 O Devayani, Kacha is even within me.
Mbh.1.76.4296 Devayani replied, Both evils shall, like fire, burn me!
Mbh.1.76.4300 Then Sukra said, O son of Vrihaspati, thou art, indeed, one already crowned with success, because Devayani regards thee so well.
Mbh.1.77.4321 SECTION LXXVII Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, After the expiry of the period of his vow, Kacha, having obtained his preceptor's leave, was about to return to the abode of the celestials, when Devayani, addressing him, said, O grandson of the Rishi Angiras, in conduct and birth, in learning, asceticism and humility, thou shinest most brightly.
Mbh.1.77.4332 As my preceptor Sukra, thy father, is ever deserving of my regards, so art thou, O Devayani!
Mbh.1.77.4334 Hearing this, Devayani replied, Thou, too, art the son of my father's preceptor's son.
Mbh.1.77.4355 I do not deserve thy curse, O Devayani.
Mbh.1.77.4363 Vaisampayana continued, That first of Brahmanas, Kacha, having said so unto Devayani speedily wended his way unto the abode of the chief of the celestials.
Mbh.1.78.4377 And it so happened that from the intermingled heap, the garments of Devayani were appropriated by Sarmishtha, the daughter of Vrishaparvan, from ignorance that it was not hers.
Mbh.1.78.4378 And, O king, thereupon, between them, Devayani and Sarmishtha, then ensued a dispute.
Mbh.1.78.4379 And Devayani said, O daughter of the Asura chief, why dost thou take my attire, being, as thou art, my disciple?
Mbh.1.78.4389 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words, Devayani became exceedingly angry and began to pull at her clothes.
Mbh.1.78.4391 Indeed, the wicked Sarmishtha believing that Devayani was dead, bent her steps home-wards in a wrathful mood.
Mbh.1.78.4405 Devayani then replied, I am the daughter of Sukra who brings back into life the Asuras slain by the gods.
Mbh.1.78.4413 When the son of Nahusha had gone away, Devayani of faultless features, afflicted with grief, then spoke unto her maid, Ghurnika by name, who met her then.
Mbh.1.78.4417 And she said, I tell thee, O great Brahmana, that Devayani hath been ill-used, O fortunate one, in the forest by Sarmishtha, the daughter of Vrishaparvan'
Mbh.1.78.4421 Hearing this Devayani replied, Be it a penalty or not, listen to me with attention.
Mbh.1.78.4428 Sukra replied, Thou art, O Devayani, no daughter of a hired adorer, of one that asketh for alms and accepteth gifts.
Mbh.1.79.4435 SECTION LXXIX Sambhava Parva continued Sukra continued, Know, then, O Devayani, that he that mindeth not the evil speeches of others, conquereth everything!
Mbh.1.79.4438 Know thou, O Devayani, that by him is everything conquered, who calmly subdueth his rising anger.
Mbh.1.79.4442 Devayani, on hearing this speech of her father, said, O father, I know, also what the difference is between anger and forgiveness as regards the power of each.
Mbh.1.80.4474 Sukra then answered, If it is true, O great Asura, that I am the lord of all the wealth of the Asuras, then go and gratify Devayani'
Mbh.1.80.4475 Vaisampayana continued, when the great Kavya was so addressed by Vrishaparvan, he then went to Devayani and told her all.
Mbh.1.80.4476 Devayani, however, quickly replied, O Bhargava, if thou art truly the lord of the Asura king himself and of all his wealth, then let the king himself come to me and say so in my presence'
Mbh.1.80.4477 Vrishaparvan then approached Devayani and told her, O Devayani of sweet smiles, whatever thou desirest I am willing to give thee, however difficult it may be to grant the same'
Mbh.1.80.4478 Devayani answered, I desire Sarmishtha with a thousand maids to wait on me!
Mbh.1.80.4481 Let her also accomplish what Devayani wisheth'
Mbh.1.80.4484 Urged by Devayani, the Brahmana Sukra is on the point of leaving his disciples the Asuras.
Mbh.1.80.4485 O sinless one, thou must do what Devayani wisheth'
Mbh.1.80.4486 Sarmishtha replied, I shall cheerfully do what Devayani wisheth.
Mbh.1.80.4487 Urged by Devayani Sukra is calling me.
Mbh.1.80.4488 Both Sukra and Devayani must not leave the Asuras through my fault'
Mbh.1.80.4490 And approaching Devayani she said, With my thousand maids, I am thy waiting-maid!
Mbh.1.80.4492 Devayani replied, I am the daughter of one who chanteth the praises of thy father, and who beggeth and accepteth alms; thou, on the other hand, art the daughter of one who is adored.
Mbh.1.81.4501 SECTION LXXXI Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, After some length of time, O best of monarchs, Devayani of the fairest complexion went into the same woods for purposes of pleasure.
Mbh.1.81.4506 And the king saw Devayani and Sarmishtha, and those other maidens also, all decked with celestial ornaments and full of voluptuous languor in consequence of the flower-honey they drank.
Mbh.1.81.4507 And Devayani of sweet smiles, unrivalled for beauty and possessed of the fairest complexion amongst them all, was reclining at her ease.
Mbh.1.81.4511 Hearing the monarch, Devayani then answered, Listen to me, O best of men.
Mbh.1.81.4517 Devayani replied, O best of king, everything resulteth from Fate.
Mbh.1.81.4524 Devayani then enquired, O king, what hast thou come here for?
Mbh.1.81.4529 Devayani answered, With my two thousand damsels and my waiting-maid Sarmishtha, I wait but your commands.
Mbh.1.81.4535 To this Devayani replied, Brahmanas had before this been united with the Kshatriyas, and Kshatriyas with Brahmanas.
Mbh.1.81.4540 Devayani answered, This hand of mine hath never been touched before by any man save thee.
Mbh.1.81.4544 Devayani then told the monarch, O bull amongst men, why dost thou, indeed, say that Brahmana should be more avoided than an angry snake of virulent poison or a blazing fire of spreading flames'
Mbh.1.81.4550 Devayani then said, Thou art, indeed, chosen by me.
Mbh.1.81.4554 Vaisampayana continued, After this, Devayani quickly sent a maidservant to her father.
Mbh.1.81.4558 And Devayani then said, This O father, is the son of Nahusha.
Mbh.1.81.4571 Maintain virtuously thy wife, the slender-waisted Devayani.
Mbh.1.81.4577 And having received from Sukra this rich treasure of the excellent Devayani with Sarmishtha and those two thousand maidens, and duly honoured also by Sukra himself and the Asuras, the best of monarchs, then, commanded by the high-souled Bhargava, returned to his capital with a joyous heart
Mbh.1.82.4578 SECTION LXXXII Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Yayati then, on returning to his capital which was like unto the city of Indra, entered his inner apartments and established there his bride Devayani.
Mbh.1.82.4579 And the monarch, directed by Devayani, established Vrishaparvan's daughter Sarmishtha in a mansion especially erected near the artificial woods of Asokas in his gardens.
Mbh.1.82.4581 But it was with Devayani that the royal son of Nahusha sported like a celestial for many years in joy and bliss.
Mbh.1.82.4582 And when her season came, the fair Devayani conceived.
Mbh.1.82.4589 Devayani hath become mother.
Mbh.1.82.4591 Shall I choose him also for my husband whom Devayani hath chosen?
Mbh.1.82.4603 But Usanas commanded me, while I was united with Devayani, that never should Vrishaparvan's daughter he summoned to my bed'
Mbh.1.82.4607 Both Devayani and myself have been called hither as companions to serve the same purpose.
Mbh.1.82.4623 I am, indeed, the slave of Devayani.
Mbh.1.83.4634 SECTION LXXXIII Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, When Devayani of sweet smiles heard of the birth of this child, she became jealous, and O Bharata, Sarmishtha became an object of her unpleasant reflections.
Mbh.1.83.4635 And Devayani, repairing to her, addressed her thus, O thou of fair eye-brows, what sin is this thou hast committed by yielding to the influence of lust'
Mbh.1.83.4640 Devayani answered, It is all right if that be the case, O timid one!
Mbh.1.83.4643 Beholding him, I had not, any need to make these enquiries, Devayani then said, If this is true, if indeed, thou hast obtained thy child from such a superior Brahmana, then, O Sarmishtha, I have no cause of anger'
Mbh.1.83.4644 Vaisampayana continued, Having thus talked and laughed with each other, they separated, Devayani returning to the palace with the knowledge imparted to her by Sarmishtha.
Mbh.1.83.4645 And, O king, Yayati also begot on Devayani two sons called Yadu and Turvasu, who were like Indra and Vishnu.
Mbh.1.83.4647 And, O king, it so came to pass that one day Devayani of sweet smiles, accompanied by Yayati, went into a solitary part of the woods, in the king's extensive park.
Mbh.1.83.4649 And Devayani asked in surprise, Whose children are they, O king, who are so handsome and so like unto the children of the celestials?
Mbh.1.83.4651 Vaisampayana continued, And Devayani without waiting for a reply from the king, asked the children themselves, Ye children, what is your lineage?
Mbh.1.83.4657 But the king dared not caress them in the presence of Devayani.
Mbh.1.83.4660 But Devayani, marking the affection of the children for the king learnt the secret and addressing Sarmishtha, said, How hast thou dared to do me an injury, being, as thou art, dependent on me?
Mbh.1.83.4668 Vaisampayana said, Devayani then, hearing those words of hers, exclaimed, O king, thus, Thou hast wronged me, O monarch!
Mbh.1.83.4672 But Devayani, with eyes red with anger, would not desist.
Mbh.1.83.4676 And Devayani said, O father, virtue hath been vanquished by vice.
Mbh.1.83.4692 And Yayati said, O son of Bhrigu, I have not yet been satiated with youth or with Devayani.
Mbh.1.85.4784 But the four orders, with the Brahmanas at their head, then addressed the monarch thus, O king, how shall thou bestow thy kingdom on Puru, passing over thy eldest son Yadu born of Devayani, and, therefore, the grandson of the great Sukra?
Mbh.1.95.5228 And Yayati had two wives, viz, Devayani, the daughter of Usanas, and Sarmishtha the daughter of Vrishaparvan.
Mbh.1.95.5229 Here occurs a sloka regarding Yayati's descendants, Devayani gave birth to Yadu and Turvasu; and Vrishaparvan's daughter, Sarmishtha gave birth to Druhyu, Anu, and Puru,
Mbh.5.149.6685 Yadu, O best of the Bharatas, was born of Devayani and, therefore, O sire, was the daughter's son of Sukra, otherwise called Kavya, of immeasurable energy.
Mbh.7.61.2742 Having performed various sacrifices and virtuously begotten excellent offspring upon his wives Devayani, the daughter of Usanas and Sarmishtha, king Yayati, who was like unto a celestial, roved through the celestial woods at his own pleasure, like a second Vasava.
Mbh.7.141.7130 Yayati had by Devayani Yadu for his eldest son.
