MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.3.52.2590 It was for the sake of that mighty warrior that I refrained from sending to the other world all the Dhartarashtras along with the Suvalas, in the midst of the assembly.
Mbh.3.52.2600 O illustrious monarch O king of kings, even if these Dhartarashtras be surrounded by soldiers in array of battle, I shall send them to the other world by dint of might alone.
Mbh.3.241.12100 And Arjuna said, If the Gandharvas do not set the Dhartarashtras free peacefully, the Earth shall this day drink the blood of the king of the Gandharvas'
Mbh.5.22.930 Well-trained and active, he who hath again been rendered bitterly hostile, would in anger consume the Dhartarashtras in no time.
Mbh.5.37.1963 O king, the Dhartarashtras constitute a forest of which the Pandavas are, I think, tigers.
Mbh.5.89.4159 And all the Dhartarashtras except Duryodhana, attired in excellent robes, and with Bhishma, Drona, Kripa, and others, went out to meet him.
Mbh.5.166.7520 Wronged by the sons of Pandu, these Dhartarashtras, endued with energy, will assuredly slay in the encounter the Panchalas irresistible in combat.
Mbh.5.167.7560 Fierce in arms, this mighty bowman, devoted to the good of the Dhartarashtras, will exert himself powerfully in battle, gladdening his own friends.
Mbh.5.198.8833 And all these Dhartarashtras endued with great might, uniting together in proper order, and all clad in mail, took up their position at the other end of Kurukshetra, and, O Bharata, Duryodhana caused his encampment to be so adorned as to make it look like a second Hastinapura.
Mbh.6.20.954 The wind began to blow from behind the Pandavas against the face of the Dhartarashtras, and the beasts of prey began to yell against the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.6.21.973 Seeing that impenetrable array formed by Bhishma and regarding it as really impenetrable, the king became pale and addressed Arjuna, saying, O, mighty-armed Dhananjaya, how shall we be able to fight in battle with the Dhartarashtras who have the Grandsire for their chief combatant?
Mbh.6.25.1087 And that blare, loudly reverberating through the welkin, and the earth, rent the hearts of the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.6.25.1101 What gratification can be ours, O Janardana, by slaying the Dhartarashtras?
Mbh.6.44.2167 The vast hosts of the Pandavas and the Dhartarashtras, in that awfully murderous encounter shook in consequence of that uproar of conches and cymbals, like forests shaken by the wind
Mbh.6.44.2176 And the five sons of Draupadi, and the mighty car-warrior Saubhadra and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, rushed against those Dhartarashtras, tearing them with whetted shafts like summits of mountains with the impetuous bolts of heaven.
Mbh.6.57.2996 The Dhartarashtras, thus slaughtered in battle by Pritha's son, like the Destroyer himself at the end of the Yuga, still fought perseveringly with the Pandavas.
Mbh.6.69.3734 And in consequence of thy evil policy, O king, the Pandavas and the Dhartarashtras thus rushed, cased in mail and forming battle-array, for striking each other.
Mbh.6.77.4081 Hearing these words, the Dhartarashtras, thus urged on by the command of their eldest brother and unable to put up with the foe, quickly rushed, with upraised weapons, for slaying Dhrishtadyumna like fierce comets at the hour of the universal dissolution.
Mbh.6.77.4101 And those chastisers of foes then, viz, the Kaikeyas and the sons of Draupadi, and Dhrishtaketu of great prowess, supported by a large force and with Abhimanyu at their head, and disposing themselves in the array called Suchimukha penetrated into that car-division of the Dhartarashtras in battle.
Mbh.6.82.4277 That mighty and impenetrable array of those slayer of foes, viz, the Dhartarashtras in the form called Mandala, thus arrayed by Bhishma, began to proceed, facing the west.
Mbh.6.84.4440 Seeing the car of the ruler of the Madras retreating from battle the Dhartarashtras all became cheerless and thought it was all over with him
Mbh.6.95.4997 Advancing only twenty steps, the Pandavas and the Dhartarashtras began to strike, desirous of slaughtering each other.
Mbh.6.100.5365 Then those two vast hosts belonging to the Pandavas and the Dhartarashtras, in course of that awful encounter, shook in consequence of that tremendous uproar of conches and drums like forests shaken by the tempest.
Mbh.6.108.5782 Challenging that bull among men, viz, Bhishma, I will slay him in battle, in the very sight of the Dhartarashtras, if Phalguni doth not wish to slay him.
Mbh.6.108.5875 Thou wilt then be able to slay all Dhartarashtras assembled together in battle'
Mbh.6.121.6704 Sanjaya said, Slain in the evening the Kuru grandsire Bhishma saddened the Dhartarashtras and delighted the Panchalas.
Mbh.6.123.6786 SECTION CXXIII Sanjaya said, After the night had passed away, O monarch, all the kings, the Pandavas and the Dhartarashtras, repaired to the grandsire, Those Kshatriyas then saluted that bull of their order, that foremost one among the Kurus, that hero lying on a hero's bed, and stood in his presence.
Mbh.7.2.62 Sanjaya continued, Upon the fall of that boon-giving hero of great might, that lord of the world, viz, Santanu's son of great energy, and upon the consequent defeat of the Bharatas, Karna, with cheerless heart and eyes filled with tears, began to console the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.7.3.120 Today, O hero, like a raging conflagration of fierce flames consuming a forest, the shafts of Kiritin will consume the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.7.45.2135 The son of Arjuna, however, in the very sight of all the Dhartarashtras quickly pierced Aswatthaman in return, O sire, with many whetted shafts.
Mbh.7.49.2299 A great fear hath overtaken the Dhartarashtras endued though they might be with great strength
Mbh.7.77.3393 By every means shall I strive so that Vibhatsu in battle may slay Jayadratha in the very sight of the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.7.78.3418 For frustrating my vow, Jayadratha, protected by all the mighty car-warriors, will be kept in their rear by the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.7.98.4525 And Arjuna said, This Jayadratha hath been placed in their midst by six of the foremost car-warriors among the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.7.107.5002 Indeed, while the heroic protectors of the ruler of the Sindhus were fighting, and while the Dhartarashtras were roaring in front of Arjuna's car, the twang of Gandiva could not be heard.
Mbh.7.139.6984 Indeed, Satyaki and Somadatta's son continued to cover each other with their arrowy showers in the sight of the Dhartarashtras filled with joy.
Mbh.7.142.7273 Then Arjuna, frightening the Dhartarashtras, invoked into existence the Varuna weapon on all sides.
Mbh.7.147.7707 Repairing unto him, he informed Drona of that immense slaughter of the Kurus, the victory of his foes, and the dire calamity of the Dhartarashtras
Mbh.7.152.7988 And the kings, beholding Bhima said, That is Rudra who is fighting in Bhima's form among the Dhartarashtras'
Mbh.7.177.9665 These Kauravas and the Dhartarashtras are on the point of being annihilated.
Mbh.7.181.9889 When Abhimanyu was slain by the wicked Dhartarashtras, the mighty car-warrior Savyasachin, O Krishna, was not present in that battle.
Mbh.7.187.10323 When the engagement became general ant confused, Yudhishthira the son of Dharma, addressing all the foremost of warriors among the Panchalas and the Matsyas, said, They that are our life, they that are our heads, they amongst us that are endued with great strength, those bulls among men are all engaged with the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.7.191.10621 During the progress of that battle the Dhartarashtras began to be thinned.
Mbh.7.194.10751 Sanjaya continued, Having behold before the Dhartarashtras fly away, Yudhishthira, seeing them once more prepared for furious battle, addressed Arjuna, saying, After the preceptor Drona had been slain in battle by Dhrishtadyumna, like the mighty Asura, Vritra, by the wielder of the thunderbolt, the Kurus, O Dhananjaya, becoming cheerless, gave up all hopes of victory.
Mbh.7.194.10774 O king, as to who he may be that is roaring so loud, having rallied the Dhartarashtras after the fall of the disarmed preceptor, he, who is endued with modesty, possessed of mighty arms, has the tread of an infuriated elephant, owns a face like that of a tiger, always achieves fierce feats, and dispels the fears of the Kurus, he upon whose birth Drona gave away a thousand kine unto Brahmanas of high worth, he O king, that is roaring so loud, is Aswatthaman.
Mbh.7.198.11208 Quickly approaching Aswatthaman, that great bowman having the mark of the lion's tail on his banner, Arjuna addressed him, saying, Show me now the might thou hast, the energy, the knowledge, and the manliness, that are in thee, as also thy affection for the Dhartarashtras and thy hatred for us, and the high mettle of which thou art capable.
Mbh.8.1.18 Then Vrisha Karna having made an immense slaughter of his enemies in battle, was at last slain in the sight of the Dhartarashtras, by Arjuna.
Mbh.8.5.153 Even as Mahendra slew Vritra, and Rama slew Ravana; even as Krishna slew Naraka or Mura in battle; even as the mighty Rama of Bhrigu's race slew the heroic Kartavirya, invincible in battle, with all his kinsmen and friends, after fighting a terrible battle celebrated through the three worlds; even as Skanda slew the Asura Mahisha, and Rudra slew the Asura Andhaka, even so hath Arjuna, O king, in single combat, slain, with all his kinsmen, that foremost of smiters, viz, Karna, who was invincible in battle and upon whom the Dhartarashtras had placed their hopes of victory, and who was the great cause of the hostility with the Pandavas!
Mbh.8.9.278 He who was the strength of the Dhartarashtras, he who was an object of fear to the sons of Pandu, alas, he viz, Karna, that pride of all bowman, hath been slain by Arjuna!
Mbh.8.11.448 Similarly Yudhishthira, O king, beholding the Pandava army disposed in array, regarded the Dhartarashtras with Karna to be already slain.
Mbh.8.37.1957 When our women and children are weeping and uttering loud wails, when the valour of the Dhartarashtras has been defeated, I know it, O Shalya, that it is I who am to fight.
Mbh.8.46.2539 Let the sons of Draupadi with Shikhandi amongst them, proceed against the rest of the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.8.58.3325 No one amongst the Dhartarashtras cometh against me for fight.
Mbh.8.60.3444 SECTION Sanjaya said, Meanwhile Krishna, pointing out king Yudhishthira the just, unto Kunti's son Partha, addressed him in these words: Yonder, O son of Pandu, your brother Yudhishthira is being pursued by many mighty and great bowmen amongst the Dhartarashtras, all inspired with the desire of slaughtering him.
Mbh.8.60.3467 Yonder Karna urges forward the mighty car-warriors of the Dhartarashtras towards the son of Pritha with the weapons called Sthunakarna, Indrasjaha and Pasupata, and with clubs and other weapons.
Mbh.8.60.3522 Through sheer valour, the Pancalas are slaughtering the Dhartarashtras like angry lions slaying elephants.
Mbh.8.60.3540 The shouts of the Dhartarashtras are no longer heard, now that Bhima, O bull of Bharata's race, who is equal to Purandara himself, is engaged in battle.
Mbh.8.62.3660 Thereupon all the Dhartarashtras, with their king, set up a loud shout, saying, Seize!
Mbh.8.62.3663 Then seventeen hundred Kekaya troops, skilled in smiting, united with a body of the Pancala troops, O king, checked the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.8.66.3817 The leader of all the Dhartarashtras, he was their armour and protector!
Mbh.8.66.3822 He was the saviour of the Dhartarashtras, and the proceeder in their van!
Mbh.8.67.3922 Yonder, the Dhartarashtras are about to devour Bhima.
Mbh.8.69.3967 The Dhartarashtras have now been assailed by the intelligent Bhimasena.
Mbh.8.70.4110 Agitating the foremost of car-warriors and elephants and steeds and foot-soldiers, Bhima, single-handed, is now in the midst of the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.8.73.4366 What man, unprotected by thee, could advance, beholding the mighty and swelling host of the Dhartarashtras arrayed in order of battle?
Mbh.8.74.4507 Today, O Krishna, after Karna's fall, the Dhartarashtras with their king, struck with panic, will fly away in all directions, like deer afraid of the lion.
Mbh.8.74.4519 Today, I will bestow the earth, divested of Dhartarashtras on my brother, or, perhaps, thou, O Keshava, wilt walk over the earth divested of Arjuna!
Mbh.8.76.4566 I will despatch all these Dhartarashtras to the presence of Yama
Mbh.8.77.4700 At this, the Dhartarashtras, O monarch, set up a loud roar all around.
Mbh.8.77.4713 Slaughtered by Bhima, the retreating Dhartarashtras, O king, approaching the spot where Karna was, once more stood for battle, surrounding him.
Mbh.8.78.4752 All the great bowmen among the Dhartarashtras also, O best of men, applauded Karna, that foremost of great car-warriors, that first of all bowmen.
Mbh.8.87.5281 The Dhartarashtras then, O bull of Bharata's race, with their troops, encompassed the high-souled Karna, that ornament of battle, without losing any time.
Mbh.8.91.5803 The Dhartarashtras will meet with destruction at the hands of those lions among men viz, the sons of Pandu, that are always protected by virtue
Mbh.8.92.5886 Bhima then, uttering loud roars and causing the welkin to tremble with those awful and tremendous shouts, began to slap his armpits, jump, and dance, frightening the Dhartarashtras by those movements.
Mbh.9.1.48 On the side of the Pandavas seven are alive, they are the five Pandava brothers, and Vasudeva, and Satyaki and amongst the Dhartarashtras three are so, Kripa, Kritavarma, and Drona's son, that foremost of victors.
Mbh.9.7.416 Having obtained the might of thy arms, let the Dhartarashtras endued with great strength, rule the wide Earth without a foe.
Mbh.9.8.481 When after Karna's fall the Parthas had uttered leonine roars, a great fear, O king, had possessed the hearts of the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.9.21.1336 Meanwhile the Dhartarashtras, O monarch, who had not fled far from that spot, beholding the king, rallied and returned there, clad in mail.
Mbh.9.21.1388 Then king Yudhishthira, filled with great wrath and becoming desirous of vanquishing the Dhartarashtras and their king in that battle, pierced the son of Saradwat with three arrows winged with gold and whetted on stone, and next slew with four others the four steeds of Kritavarma.
Mbh.9.22.1506 I regard the Dhartarashtras to be foolish and of weak understanding in every way, since they continued the battle even after the fall of Santanu's son!
Mbh.9.22.1514 Beholding even a full Akshauhini of troops slain by Bhimasena in battle, the carnage did not still cease, in consequence of either the folly or the covetousness of the Dhartarashtras!
Mbh.9.25.1675 Both Nakula and Sahadeva, O Bharata, are fatigued, having fought with the wretched Dhartarashtras and their followers!
Mbh.9.26.1792 As regards the Dhartarashtras, almost all of them turned away from the fight.
Mbh.9.57.4115 Having attained to the other shores of those fierce hostilities, Vrikodara once more laughingly said these words slowly unto Yudhishthira and Keshava and Srinjaya and Dhananjaya and the two sons of Madri, They that had dragged Draupadi, while ill, into the assembly and had disrobed her there, behold those Dhartarashtras slain in battle by the Pandavas through the ascetic penances of Yajnasena's daughter!
Mbh.10.1.88 So great hath been the havoc made by the Pandavas on the Dhartarashtras that we three are the only survivors of that great carnage!
Mbh.10.8.605 And some said, The Dhartarashtras in rage could never accomplish such feats in battle as these which rakshasas of wicked deeds are achieving upon us during the hour of sleep!
Mbh.10.9.723 On the side of the Pandavas, only seven are alive, and among the Dhartarashtras, only we three!
Mbh.11.25.1041 Gandhari said, The Pandavas and the Dhartarashtras, O Krishna, have both been burnt.
Mbh.11.27.1110 His might of arms was always worshipped by the Dhartarashtras even as we always worship the might of the wielder of gandiva!
Mbh.12.1.27 That hero who had the strength of ten thousand elephants, who in this world was an unrivalled car-warrior, who was possessed of leonine pride and gait, who was endued with great intelligence and compassion, whose liberality was very great, who practised many high vows, who was the refuge of the Dhartarashtras, who was sensitive about his honour, whose prowess was irresistible, who was ready to pay off all injuries and was always wrathful in battle, who overthrew us in repeated encounters, who was quick in the use of weapons, conversant with every mode of warfare, possessed of great skill, and endued with wonderful valour that Karna was a son of Kunti, born secretly of her, and therefore, a uterine brother of ours.
Mbh.12.7.240 The Dhartarashtras could not enjoy this earth, nor could they enjoy women and music.
Mbh.12.10.389 If censuring the duties of kings thou wouldst lead a life of idleness, then, O bull of Bharata's race, this destruction of the Dhartarashtras was perfectly uncalled for.
Mbh.18.3.191 Indeed, he reached that place where those foremost of men, those heroes, viz, the Pandavas and the Dhartarashtras, freed from human wrath, were enjoying each his respective status.
