MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.2.370 The birth of Ghatotkacha; the meeting of the Pandavas with Vyasa and in accordance with his advice their stay in disguise in the house of a Brahmana in the city of Ekachakra; the destruction of the Asura Vaka, and the amazement of the populace at the sight; the extra-ordinary births of Krishna and Dhrishtadyumna; the departure of the Pandavas for Panchala in obedience to the injunction of Vyasa, and moved equally by the desire of winning the hand of Draupadi on learning the tidings of the Swayamvara from the lips of a Brahmana; victory of Arjuna over a Gandharva, called Angaraparna, on the banks of the Bhagirathi, his contraction of friendship with his adversary, and his hearing from the Gandharva the history of Tapati, Vasishtha and Aurva.
Mbh.1.2.476 And then accompanied by Kritavarman and Kripa he slew all the sons of Draupadi, all the Panchalas with Dhrishtadyumna and others, together with their relatives, slumbering unsuspectingly in the night.
Mbh.1.2.478 Those escaped owing to Krishna's counsels, then the charioteer of Dhrishtadyumna brought to the Pandavas intelligence of the slaughter of the slumbering Panchalas by the son of Drona.
Mbh.1.63.3167 Then was born Dhrishtadyumna, of the splendour of Agni himself, from the sacrificial fire.
Mbh.1.67.3544 Know also, O monarch, that the mighty car-warrior Dhrishtadyumna was a portion of Agni.
Mbh.1.167.8580 And after this narration was over, that Brahmana, O Janamejaya, also spoke of the wonderful self-choice of Yajnasena's daughter, the princes of Panchala, and of the births of Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandi, and of the birth, without the intervention of a woman, of Krishna Draupadi at the great sacrifice of Drupada.
Mbh.1.167.8582 The Pandavas said, How, O Brahmana, did the birth of Dhrishtadyumna the son of Drupada, take place from the sacrificial fire?
Mbh.1.169.8695 Then the Brahmanas present there, their expectations fully gratified, bestowed names upon the new-born pair, Let this son of king Drupada, they said, be called Dhrishtadyumna, because of his excessive audacity and because of his being born like Dyumna with a natural mail and weapon'
Mbh.1.185.9363 And the slender-waisted Draupadi of every feature perfectly faultless, and whose body emitteth a fragrance like unto that of the blue lotus for two full miles around, is the sister of the strong-armed Dhrishtadyumna gifted with great prowess, the would-be slayer of Drona, who was born with natural mail and sword and bow and arrows from the blazing fire, himself like unto the second Fire.
Mbh.1.186.9414 And when that vast amphitheatre, O monarch, became perfectly still, Dhrishtadyumna possessed of a voice deep as the sound of the kettledrum or the clouds, taking hold of his sister's arm, stood in the midst of that concourse, and said, with a voice loud and deep as the roar of the clouds, these charming words of excellent import, Hear ye assembled kings, this is the bow, that is the mark, and these are the arrows.
Mbh.1.187.9418 SECTION CLXXXVIII Swayamvara Parva continued Dhrishtadyumna said, Duryodhana, Durvisaha, Durmukha and Dushpradharshana, Vivinsati, Vikarna, Saha, and Duhsasana; Yuyutsu and Vayuvega and Bhimavegarava; Ugrayudha, Valaki, Kanakayu, and Virochana, Sukundala, Chitrasena, Suvarcha, and Kanakadhwaja; Nandaka, and Vahusali, and Tuhunda, and Vikata; these, O sister, and many other mighty sons of Dhritarashtra, all heroes, accompanied by Karna, have come for thy hand.
Mbh.1.193.9617 SECTION CLXLIV Swayamvara Parva continued Vaisampayana said, When the Kuru princes Bhima and Arjuna were wending towards the abode of the potter, Dhrishtadyumna, the Panchala prince followed them.
Mbh.1.194.9647 SECTION CLXLV Vaivahika Parva Vaisampayana said, Thus addressed Dhrishtadyumna, that foremost of the Lunar princes, cheerfully said unto his father all that had happened and by whom Krishna had been won.
Mbh.1.196.9768 Drupada said, O son of Kunti thy mother, and my son Dhrishtadyumna and thyself, settle amongst yourselves as to what should be done.
Mbh.1.196.9770 Vaisampayana continued, After this, O Bharata, Yudhishthira, Kunti and Dhrishtadyumna discoursed upon this matter.
Mbh.1.197.9786 After Drupada had ceased, Dhrishtadyumna spoke, saying O bull amongst Brahmanas, O thou of ascetic wealth, how can, O Brahmana, the elder brother, if he is of a good disposition, approach the wife of his younger brother?
Mbh.1.197.9808 The Pandavas and Kunti and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race sat there, waiting for the return of Vyasa and Drupada.
Mbh.1.201.9975 Beholding the mighty sons of Pritha, escaped from the burning house of lac and allied with Drupada, and thinking of Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandin and the other sons of Drupada all accomplished in fight, they were struck with fear and overcome with despair.
Mbh.1.205.10114 Let him say this repeatedly unto Drupada and Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.2.44.1821 The powerful Dhrishtadyumna followed without loss of time king Virata: and Dhananjaya followed the illustrious and mighty charioteer Yajnasena; and the mighty Bhimasena followed Bhishma and Dhritarashtra: and Sahadeva, that master of battle, followed the brave Drona and his son; and Nakula, O king, followed Suvala with his son; and the sons of Draupadi with the son of Subhadra followed those mighty warriors, the kings of the mountainous countries.
Mbh.2.52.2192 And Dhrishtadyumna and Satyaki and the sons of Pandu and Kesava, those eight, endued with strength and prowess and handsome in person, beholding the kings deprived of consciousness and myself in that plight, laughed outright.
Mbh.2.78.3392 Aided by the ascetic power of Yaja and Upayaja, Drupada obtained from the sacrificial fire a son named Dhrishtadyumna and a daughter, viz, the faultless Krishna, both risen from the sacrificial platform.
Mbh.2.78.3393 That Dhrishtadyumna is the brother-in-law of the sons of Pandu by marriage, and dear unto them.
Mbh.2.78.3400 What grief can be greater to me in this world than this, ye Kauravas that Dhrishtadyumna is the destined slayer of Drona, this belief is general.
Mbh.3.12.647 Vaisampayana continued, When the illustrious Kesava had said so in the midst of that assembly of brave kings, all excited with anger, Panchali surrounded by Dhrishtadyumna and her other heroic brothers, approached him of eyes like lotus leaves seated with his cousins, and, desirous of protection, addressed in angry accents that refuge of all, saying, Asita and Devala have said that in the matter of the creation of all things, thou hast been indicated by the sages as the only Prajapati and the Creator of all the worlds!
Mbh.3.12.661 O Krishna, how could one like me, the wife of Pritha's sons, the sister of Dhrishtadyumna, and the friend of thee, be dragged to the assembly!
Mbh.3.12.743 Dhrishtadyumna said, I will slay Drona, Sikhandin will slay the grandfather.
Mbh.3.27.1276 Why also, O king, dost thou pardon the foe at sight of myself in exile who, born in the race of Drupada and, therefore, the sister of Dhrishtadyumna, am the daughter-in-law of the illustrious Pandu and the devoted wife of heroes?
Mbh.3.31.1514 Call to thy mind, O Krishna, the circumstances of thy own birth as thou that heard of them, and recall also the manner in which Dhrishtadyumna of great prowess was born!
Mbh.3.51.2554 And Draupadi's sons also headed by Dhrishtadyumna, and Virata, and Dhrishtaketu, and those mighty warriors, the Kekayas, all went there.
Mbh.3.51.2560 I shall, O chief of the Kurus, assisted by Rama and Bhima and Arjuna and the twins and Akrura and Gada and Shamva and Pradyumna and Ahuka and the heroic Dhrishtadyumna and the son of Sisupala, slay in battle in course of a day Duryodhana and Karna and Dussasana and Suvala's son and all others who may fight against us.
Mbh.3.51.2562 Even these, O king, were Krishna's words unto Yudhishthira, who, on the conclusion of Krishna's speech, addressed him in that meeting of heroes and in the hearing of all those brave warriors headed by Dhrishtadyumna, saying, O Janardana, I accept these words of thine as truth.
Mbh.3.51.2566 Consenting to these words of king Yudhishthira the just, his counsellors headed by Dhrishtadyumna soon pacified the incensed Kesava with sweet words and expressions suitable to the occasion.
Mbh.4.72.2814 And the mighty Drupada, also with the heroic sons of Draupadi and the unvanquished Sikhandin, and that foremost of wielder of weapons, the invincible Dhrishtadyumna came there with another Akshauhini of troops.
Mbh.5.3.84 Who would approach Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Drupada, or these five sons of the Pandavas who have added lustre to Draupadi's name, rivalling their fathers in valour, equal to them in every respect and full of martial pride, or him of the powerful bow, Subhadra's son, irresistible by even the gods themselves; or Gada, or Pradyumna, or Samva, resembling Yama or the thunderbolt or fire?
Mbh.5.22.934 In their side will be Dhrishtadyumna, endued with great activity, one who is regarded as one of the Pandavas themselves.
Mbh.5.25.1037 Sanjaya said, I greet Yudhishthira, and Vrikodara and Dhananjaya, and the two sons of Madri, and Vasudeva the descendant of Sura, and Satyaki, and the aged ruler of the Panchalas, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata.
Mbh.5.48.2672 Just these are the words spoken by Arjuna, the wielder of Gandiva, eager for the fight and with eyes red as the lotus, If Dhritarashtra's son doth not surrender to king Yudhishthira of the Ajamida race, his kingdom, then it is evident there must be some sinful act committed by the sons of Dhritarashtra, whose consequences are yet unreaped by them, for it can be nothing else when they desire battle with Bhimasena and Arjuna, and the Aswins and Vasudeva and Sini's son, and Dhrishtadyumna infallible in arms, and Sikhandin, and Yudhishthira, who is like Indra himself and who can consume heaven and earth by merely wishing them ill.
Mbh.5.50.2852 Dhritarashtra said, Tell us, O Sanjaya, of the forces of Dhrishtadyumna, as also of the Somakas, and of all others, with which the Pandavas intend to fight with us'
Mbh.5.50.2858 With that hero Dhrishtadyumna as their ally, they will fight against you.
Mbh.5.55.3024 When the Parthas had been exiled to the woods, there came unto them the slayer of Madhu with a vast army in battle array and capable of crushing hostile kingdoms; and there also came unto them the Kekayas, and Dhrishtaketu, and Dhrishtadyumna of Pritha's race and numerous other kings in their train; and all those great car-warriors were assembled in a place not far from Indraprastha; and having assembled together they censured thee and all the Kurus.
Mbh.5.55.3109 The five brothers, with Dhrishtadyumna and Satyaki, these seven warriors of the enemy, O king, are regarded as their chief strength.
Mbh.5.57.3149 And Drupada, the king of the Panchalas, surrounded by his ten heroic sons, Satyajit and others, headed by Dhrishtadyumna, and well-protected by Sikhandin, and having furnished his soldiers with every necessary thing, hath come there with a full Akshauhini, desirous of honouring Yudhishthira.
Mbh.5.57.3154 That great car-warrior, Dhrishtadyumna, who is acquainted with human, celestial, Gandharva and Asura arrays of battle, leadeth that host.
Mbh.5.57.3163 And those great bowmen, the sons of Draupadi, having cars furnished with gold-embroidered banners, all headed by Dhrishtadyumna, will, O Bharata, advance against Drona.
Mbh.5.57.3175 Those that have Yudhishthira for their leader, the slayer of Madhu for their protector, the heroic Savyasachin and Vrikodara for their warriors, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata, and Satyaki, and Drupada, and Dhrishtaketu with his son, and Uttamaujas, and the unconquerable Yudhamanyu of the Panchalas, and Sikhandin, and Kshatradeva, and Uttara, the son of Virata, and Kasayas, the Chedis, the Matsyas, the Srinjayas, Vabhru the son of Virata, the Panchalas, and the Prabhadrakas, for fighting for them, those, indeed, from whom Indra himself cannot, if they are unwilling, snatch this earth, those heroes, cool and steady, in fight, who can split the very mountains, alas, it is with them that are endued with every virtue and possessed of superhuman prowess that this wicked son of mine, O Sanjaya, desireth to fight, disregarding me even though I am crying myself hoarse'
Mbh.5.57.3187 Sanjaya said, O Bharata, Dhrishtadyumna is always urging the Pandavas to war, saying, Fight ye, best among the Bharatas.
Mbh.5.57.3199 And when the righteous Yudhishthira the son of Kunti said this, Dhrishtadyumna fearlessly addressed me in these words, Go thou, O Suta, without delay, and say unto all those that have come to fight for Duryodhana, say unto the Kurus of the Pratipa dynasty with the Vahlikas, the son of Saradwata and Karna and Drona, and Drona's son, and Jayadratha, and Dussasana, and Vikarna and king Duryodhana, and Bhishma, Do not suffer yourselves to be slain by Arjuna, who is protected by the celestials.
Mbh.5.65.3415 What man is there whom Dhrishtadyumna, the prince of Panchala, cannot overthrow, shooting his arrows among the foes, like the chief of the celestials hurling his thunderbolt?
Mbh.5.80.3882 Virata with his sons, Drupada with his allies, and Dhrishtadyumna, O Madhava, and the ruler of Kasi of great prowess and Dhrishtaketu the lord of the Chedis?
Mbh.5.82.3920 I am the sister of Dhrishtadyumna, thy dear friend, O Krishna.
Mbh.5.83.3983 And the valiant Chekitana and Dhrishtaketu, the ruler of the Chedis, and Drupada and the king of Kasi and that mighty car-warrior Sikhandin, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Virata with his sons, and the princes of Kekaya also, all these Kshatriyas followed that bull of the Kshatriya race to honour him.
Mbh.5.126.5592 As yet Nakula, and Sahadeva, Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, and Virata, and Sikhandin, and Sisupal's son, accoutred in mail and all well-versed in arms, do not penetrate thy ranks, like huge crocodiles penetrating the deep, and pour their arrowy showers, so let hostility cease.
Mbh.5.129.5750 Indeed, when Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Karna and Bhimasena and Dhananjaya and Dhrishtadyumna will be enraged, the population of the earth will be exterminated.
Mbh.5.141.6324 Dhrishtadyumna, the prince of the Panchalas, that mighty car-warrior Satyaki, Uttamaujas, Yudhamanyu, the prince of Somakas who is devoted to truth, the ruler of the Chedis, Chekitana, the invincible Sikhandin, the Kekaya brothers, all of the hue of Indragopaka insects, Bhimasena's uncle Kuntibhoja of high soul and possessed of steeds endued with the colours of the rainbow, the mighty car-warrior Syenajit, Sanka the son of Virata, and thyself, O Janardana, like an ocean, great is this assemblage, O Krishna, of Kshatriyas that hath been made by Yudhishthira.
Mbh.5.141.6345 The mighty Dhrishtadyumna, who sprang into life from the sacrificial fire, having for its mouth the rites celebrated with mantras, will, O Krishna, be the Dakshina of that sacrifice.
Mbh.5.141.6349 When the two princes of Panchala Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandin will overthrow Drona and Bhishma, then, O Janardana, will this sacrifice be suspended for an interval.
Mbh.5.151.6772 After the two sons of Madri had thus expressed their individual opinions, Vasava's son, Savyasachin, who was equal to Vasava himself, said these words, This celestial person of the hue of fire and endued with mighty arms, who sprang into life through the power of ascetic penances and the gratification of sages; who issued from the sacrificial fire-hole armed with bow and sword, accoutred in armour of steel, mounted on a car unto which were yoked excellent steeds of the best breed, and the clatter of whose car-wheels was as deep as the roar of mighty masses of clouds; this hero endued with that energy and strength and resembling the very lion in his frame of body and prowess, and possessed of leonine shoulders, arms, chest, and voice like the lion's roar; this hero of great effulgence; this warrior of handsome brows, fine teeth, round cheeks, long arms, of stout make, excellent thighs, large expansive eyes, excellent legs, and strong frame; this prince who is incapable of being penetrated by weapons of any kind, and who looks like an elephant with rent temples; this Dhrishtadyumna, truthful in speech, and with passions under control, was born for the destruction of Drona.
Mbh.5.151.6773 It is this Dhrishtadyumna, I think, that will be able to bear Bhishma's arrows which strike with the vehemence of the thunderbolt and look like snakes with blazing mouths, which resemble the messengers of Yama in speed, and fall like flames of fire consuming everything they touch, and which were borne before by Rama alone in battle.
Mbh.5.151.6774 I do not, O king, see the man except Dhrishtadyumna, who is able to withstand Bhishma of great vows.
Mbh.5.151.6800 As regards our leader, I would name that chastiser of foes, Dhrishtadyumna
Mbh.5.152.6806 And in the van of that host marched Bhimasena, and the two sons of Madri encased in their coats of mail, and Subhadra's son and the five sons of Draupadi and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race.
Mbh.5.152.6816 And in the rear, were Virata, Yajnasena's son of the Somaka race Dhrishtadyumna, Susarman, Kuntibhoja, Dhrishtadyumna's sons, forty thousand cars, five times as much cavalry, infantry ten times more numerous than the last, and sixty thousand elephants.
Mbh.5.153.6828 And Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race and that mighty car-warrior of great energy, viz, Yuyudhana, otherwise called Satyaki, measured the ground for the encampment.
Mbh.5.154.6839 The son of Pandu, with Vasudeva and Virata and Drupada and Dhrishtadyumna, the Panchala prince and that mighty car-warrior Sikhandin and powerful Yudhamanyu, incapable of being resisted by the very gods, might trouble the deities themselves in battle with Indra at their head.
Mbh.5.158.6991 Vaisampayana continued, Summoning then those warriors eager for battle, viz, Drupada and Virata, and that bull of Sini's race, and Dhrishtadyumna the prince of Panchala, and king Dhrishtaketu, and prince Shikhandi of Panchala, and Sahadeva, the ruler of the Magadhas, Yudhishthira duly appointed them in the command of his seven divisions.
Mbh.5.158.6992 And above them all was placed in command of all the troops that Dhrishtadyumna who had sprung from the blazing sacrificial fire for the destruction of Drona.
Mbh.5.161.7185 Say also, from me, unto Dhrishtadyumna, the prince of Panchalas, these words, viz, The hour hath now come for thee, and thou also hast come for thy hour!
Mbh.5.163.7342 And Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandin and that mighty car-warrior, Satyaki, and the five Kekaya brothers, and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, the sons of Draupadi, and Abhimanyu, and king Dhrishtaketu, and Bhimasena, endued with great prowess, and those mighty car-warriors, the twins, jumped up from their seats, their eyes red with anger, tossing their handsome arms decked with red sandal-paste and ornaments of gold.
Mbh.5.163.7373 And having thus addressed Bhima of terrible prowess that mighty-armed hero then addressed his heroic allies and well-wishers headed by Dhrishtadyumna, saying, Ye have heard the words of the sinful son of Dhritarashtra in dispraise of Vasudeva and especially of myself!
Mbh.5.164.7465 After this, Dhrishtadyumna also said unto Uluka, the gambler's son, these words, Say unto prince Suyodhana these my words, viz, I shall slay Drona with all his followers and friends.
Mbh.5.164.7474 And he also faithfully communicated unto Dhritarashtra's son the words of Vasudeva, of Bhima, of king Yudhishthira the Just, of Nakula and Virata and Drupada, O Bharata and the words of Sahadeva and Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandin, and the words also that were spoken subsequently by Kesava and Arjuna.
Mbh.5.165.7478 SECTION CLXV Sanjaya said, Having listened to Uluka's words, Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, moved his army headed by Dhrishtadyumna and others.
Mbh.5.165.7479 And that vast army commanded by Dhrishtadyumna, consisting of four kinds of forces, viz, foot-soldiers and elephants and cars and cavalry, terrible, and immovable like the earth herself, and guarded by mighty car-warriors led by Bhimasena and Arjuna, could be compared to the vast ocean lying in stillness.
Mbh.5.165.7480 And at the head of that vast force was that mighty bowman, the prince of Panchalas, invincible in battle, viz, Dhrishtadyumna, desirous of obtaining Drona for his antagonist.
Mbh.5.165.7481 And Dhrishtadyumna began to select combatants from his own army for pitting them against particular warriors of the hostile force.
Mbh.5.165.7488 And that leader of leaders of troops, the mighty and intelligent bowman Dhrishtadyumna, having arrayed his troops duly, waited for battle with a firm heart.
Mbh.5.172.7743 Dhrishtadyumna also, O Bharata, the leader of all Yudhishthira's army, that mighty car-warrior who is also a disciple of Drona, is, O king, in my judgment, an Atiratha.
Mbh.5.172.7746 Kshattradharman, the son of Dhrishtadyumna, owing to his immature years, as also in consequence of his want of exercise in arms, is, in my judgment, O king, only half a Ratha.
Mbh.5.195.8758 And his brother Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race also obtained the same.
Mbh.5.196.8771 SECTION CXCVI Sanjaya said, When the night passed away and morning came, thy sons once more, in the midst of all the troops, asked their grandsire, saying, O son of Ganga, this army that is ready for fight, of Pandu's son, that abounds with men, elephants, and steeds, that is crowded with Maharathas, that is protected by these mighty bowmen endued with great strength, viz, Bhima and Arjuna and others headed by Dhrishtadyumna and all resembling the very regents of the world, that is invincible and incapable of being withstood, that resembles the unbounded sea, this sea of warriors incapable of being agitated by the very gods in battle, in how many days, O son of Ganga, O thou of great effulgence, canst thou annihilate it, and in what time can that mighty bowman, our preceptor Drona, in what time also the mighty Kripa, in what time Karna who taketh a pleasure in battle, and in what time that best of Brahmanas, viz, the son of Drona, can each annihilate it?
Mbh.5.199.8840 SECTION CXCIX Vaisampayana said, Like Duryodhana, king Yudhishthira also, the son of Kunti and Dharma, ordered out, O Bharata, his heroic warriors headed by Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.5.199.8846 And the son of Pandu first ordered Abhimanyu, and Vrihanta, and the five sons of Draupadi, to march with Dhrishtadyumna at their head.
Mbh.5.199.8850 And that army of fierce bowmen commanded by Dhrishtadyumna, hitherto stationed in one place, but now extended into columns for marching, looked like the impetuous current of Ganga.
Mbh.6.16.830 The great bowmen amongst the Srinjayas headed by Dhrishtadyumna, beholding Bhishma looked like little animals when they would behold a mighty yawning lion.
Mbh.6.16.831 Indeed, all the combatants headed by Dhrishtadyumna repeatedly trembled in fear.
Mbh.6.19.913 And Bhimasena, and Dhrishtadyumna endued with great energy, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and king Dhrishtaketu, became the leaders of that force.
Mbh.6.19.916 And that mighty car-warrior, Dhrishtadyumna, the prince of Panchala, with those bravest of combatants and the foremost of car-warriors, viz, the Prabhadrakas, protected those princes from behind.
Mbh.6.19.926 Causing those kings to move and make space for him, that mighty car-warrior Dhrishtadyumna, accompanied by his brothers and sons protected Yudhishthira from behind.
Mbh.6.25.1071 Sanjaya said, Beholding the army of the Pandavas arrayed, king Duryodhana, approaching the preceptor Drona said these words: Behold, O preceptor, this vast army of the son of Pandu, arrayed by Drupada's son Dhrishtadyumna, thy intelligent disciple.
Mbh.6.25.1086 And that splendid bowman, the ruler of Kasi and that mighty car-warrior, Sikhandin, Dhrishtadyumna, Virata, and that unvanquished Satyaki, and Drupada, and the sons of Draupadi, and the mighty-armed son of Subhadra, all these, O lord of earth, severally blew their conches.
Mbh.6.43.2155 And beholding those tigers among men, viz, the sons of Pandu, on their cars, the kings on their side with Dhrishtadyumna and others, once more set up shouts of joy.
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.6.45.2225 And Dhrishtadyumna, O Bharata rushed against Drona.
Mbh.6.47.2376 And those were Virata with his son, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, and Bhima, the five Kekaya brothers, and Satyaki also, O king.
Mbh.6.47.2413 And upon Subhadra's son and Bhimasena, and that mighty car-warrior Satyaki, and upon the ruler of the Kekayas, and Virata, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishatas' race, and upon the Chedi troops, the old Kuru grandsire poured showers of arrows
Mbh.6.48.2516 They were Satyaki, and Bhimasena, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race; and the five Kekaya brothers, and Dhrishtaketu and Abhimanyu of great energy.
Mbh.6.48.2524 And the grandsire of the Bharatas also struck Satyaki, in that combat, with a hundred arrows, and Dhrishtadyumna with twenty and the Kekaya brothers with five.
Mbh.6.50.2628 I also am employed in doing thee good, as also that mighty car-warrior Satyaki and Virata and Drupada, both reverend in years, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's line.
Mbh.6.50.2630 This mighty car-warrior Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race placed in command of thy army is always desirous of thy welfare and engaged in doing that which is agreeable to thee, as also this Sikhandin, O thou of mighty arms, who is certainly the slayer of Bhishma.
Mbh.6.50.2631 Hearing these words, the king Yudhishthira, said, unto that mighty car-warrior Dhrishtadyumna, in that very assembly and in the hearing of Vasudeva, these words, O Dhrishtadyumna, mark these words that I say unto thee, O thou of Prishata's line.
Mbh.6.50.2637 Then gladdening the listeners Dhrishtadyumna said, Ordained of old by Sambhu himself, I am, O son of Pritha, the slayer of Drona.
Mbh.6.50.2642 Thus addressed by that god among men, like Vishnu addressed by the wielder of the thunderbolt he Dhrishtadyumna, when morning dawned, placed Dhananjaya in the van of the whole army.
Mbh.6.51.2676 And the ruler of Kasi, and Saivya, and Sikhandin the mighty car-warrior, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Virata, and the mighty car-warrior Satyaki, and that great bowman the king of the Panchalas, and the five sons of Draupadi, all blew their large conches and set up leonine roars.
Mbh.6.52.2686 And when the battle began in this way, the venerable Kuru grandsire, the mighty-armed Bhishma of terrible prowess, cased in mail, taking up his bow, and approaching them, showered an arrowy downpour on the heroic son of Subhadra, and the mighty car-warrior Arjuna, and the ruler of the Kekayas and Virata, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, as also upon the Chedi and the Matsya warriors.
Mbh.6.52.2705 And then Satyaki, and Virata and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, and the sons of Draupadi, and Abhimanyu, all surrounded him, proceeding to his support.
Mbh.6.53.2761 Drona with diverse arrows pierced Dhrishtadyumna and felled the latter's charioteer from his niche in the car
Mbh.6.53.2763 And the heroic Dhrishtadyumna too pierced Drona in the combat with nine sharp arrows and addressed him, saying, Wait, Wait.
Mbh.6.53.2764 Then, again, Bharadwaja's son of great prowess and immeasurable soul, covered with his arrows the wrathful Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.6.53.2767 And then we beheld the wonderful prowess of Dhrishtadyumna insomuch that the hero stood alone, immovable like a mountain.
Mbh.6.53.2769 And beholding that difficult feat achieved by Dhrishtadyumna, the Panchalas with the Pandavas, filled with delight, set up loud shouts.
Mbh.6.53.2772 Beholding his dart thus baffled, Dhrishtadyumna of great prowess rained arrowy downpours on Drona, O king.
Mbh.6.53.2779 Then the high-souled Dhrishtadyumna, taking up another bow, and putting forth his prowess pierced Drona in that encounter with five shafts.
Mbh.6.53.2792 And we behold the mighty car-warrior Dhrishtadyumna staying where he did and warding off those clouds of arrows with his shield, using his arms with great dexterity.
Mbh.6.53.2798 And Dhrishtadyumna also proceeded to support king Yudhishthira in battle.
Mbh.6.54.2890 When, however, they were rallied again, the commander of the Pandava army Dhrishtadyumna, O Bharata, ordered his own troops, saying, Fight.
Mbh.6.54.2898 And Bhimasena also, beholding the red standard of Dhrishtadyumna on his car decked with gold and unto which were yoked steeds white as pigeons, became comforted
Mbh.6.54.2899 And Dhrishtadyumna of immeasurable soul, beholding Bhimasena encountered by the Kalingas rushed to the battle for his rescue.
Mbh.6.54.2901 Dhrishtadyumna and Vrikodara, endued with great energy, beholding Satyaki at a distance, furiously encountered the Kalingas in battle.
Mbh.6.54.2908 Thereupon, Satyaki and Bhimasena and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, rushed towards that car of Bhima decked with gold.
Mbh.6.54.2915 And Dhrishtadyumna quickly taking up that foremost of car-warriors on his own car, took away, in the very sight of all the combatants, that renowned warrior.
Mbh.6.54.2920 And worshipped by the Panchalas and the Matsyas, O bull of Bharata's race, he embraced Dhrishtadyumna and then approached Satyaki.
Mbh.6.54.2921 And Satyaki, the tiger among the Yadus, of prowess incapable of being baffled, then gladdening Bhimasena, said unto him, in the presence of Dhrishtadyumna, these words.
Mbh.6.55.2929 And beholding Dhrishtadyumna engaged in battle with Drona's son, the son of Subhadra, O Bharata, quickly came up scattering his sharp arrows.
Mbh.6.56.2979 Then that chastiser of foes, Savyasachin, beholding the host disposed in battle-array, aided by Dhrishtadyumna, disposed his troops in counter-array.
Mbh.6.56.2984 And Dhrishtadyumna, and Sikhandin, with the Panchalas and the Prabhadrakas, and supported by other troops, were stationed in the middle, O Bharata, for battle.
Mbh.6.58.3054 And Prishata's son Dhrishtadyumna, that foremost of warriors, and Pandu's son king Yudhishthira, the just, in the very sight, O Bharata, of both Drona and Ganga's son, slew their army with sharp shafts capable of slaying hostile forces.
Mbh.6.61.3321 And the Pandavas, soldiers and Dhrishtadyumna also of Prishata's race beheld him coming like a wave and resembling a snake fallen from the skies.
Mbh.6.62.3340 Dhrishtadyumna, afflicted by Salya with nine shafts, afflicted in return the ruler of Madras with many shafts made of steel.
Mbh.6.62.3346 And while Dhrishtadyumna was being thus afflicted, Abhimanyu, excited with wrath, rushed impetuously towards the car of the ruler of the Madras.
Mbh.6.62.3350 Then Bhimasena, excited with wrath, and Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.6.62.3357 And wonderful to say, Duryodhana, excited with rage, pierced Dhrishtadyumna in that battle with four sharp shafts.
Mbh.6.62.3372 Then the sons of Draupadi, and that mighty car-warrior, the son of Subhadra, and Nakula and Sahadeva, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, protecting Bhima's rear, rushed behind him, checking all by scattering their arrowy showers like the very clouds pouring rain on the mountain breast.
Mbh.6.62.3376 And we beheld mighty elephants felled and falling, slain by Dhrishtadyumna, the high-souled son of Prishata.
Mbh.6.63.3403 And in that dreadful, fierce, and terrific encounter his brother and sons and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, and the sons of Draupadi and Abhimanyu, and the unvanquished Sikhandin, these mighty warriors, did not abandon him from fear.
Mbh.6.69.3741 And in its two eyes were the invincible Sikhandin and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race.
Mbh.6.71.3816 And Kripa and Kritavarman both rushed against Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.6.72.3848 And that mighty car-warrior Dhrishtadyumna, that generalissimo of the Pandava forces of immeasurable soul, engaged in battle, O king, with Drona of fierce achievements.
Mbh.6.72.3873 And other warriors of the Pandava army, headed by Dhrishtadyumna, and desirous of slaughtering the ranks of thy son, rushed towards Santanu's son in that battle.
Mbh.6.75.3961 Then king Yudhishthira addressed Dhrishtadyumna and said, O mighty-armed one, dispose the troops in the array called Makara that scorcheth the foe'
Mbh.6.75.3962 Thus addressed by Pritha's son, that mighty car-warrior Dhrishtadyumna, that foremost of combatants on cars, issued the order, O great king, to the car-warriors, for forming the Makara array.
Mbh.6.75.3966 And king Virata that commander of a large division, formed its back, supported by Dhrishtadyumna and a large force.
Mbh.6.77.4054 Then when Bhimasena thus penetrated the Dhartarashtra host, Dhrishtadyumna the son of Prishata, forsaking Drona with whom he had been engaged, quickly proceeded to the spot where Suvala's son was stationed.
Mbh.6.77.4056 And beholding in that conflict Visoka, the charioteer of Bhimasena, Dhrishtadyumna, O king, became exceedingly cheerless and almost deprived of his senses.
Mbh.6.77.4058 Visoka then, joining his hands, replied unto Dhrishtadyumna saying, The mighty son of Pandu, endued with great strength, ordering me to wait for him here, hath alone penetrated into the Dhartarashtra host that resembleth the very ocean.
Mbh.6.77.4062 Hearing these words of Visoka, Prishata's son Dhrishtadyumna, endued with great strength, said unto the charioteer these words on the field of battle.
Mbh.6.77.4071 Having said this, the heroic Dhrishtadyumna, O Bharata, proceeded through the midst of the foe, along the tracks opened by Bhimasena and marked by elephants crushed with his mace.
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.6.77.4093 And that mighty bowman viz, Bharadwaja's son of great prowess, there beheld Dhrishtadyumna and Bhima careering through the field in that dreadful conflict.
Mbh.6.77.4095 Taking up then the weapon called Prajna, he neutralised the Pramohana weapon that Dhrishtadyumna had shot.
Mbh.6.77.4102 And thy troops, O king, struck with the fear of Bhimasena and deprived of their senses by Dhrishtadyumna, were unable to resist the rush of those mighty bowmen headed by Abhimanyu.
Mbh.6.77.4104 And those mighty bowmen with standards variegated with gold cutting through the Kaurava ranks, proceeded with great speed for rescuing Dhrishtadyumna and Vrikodara.
Mbh.6.77.4112 Then that mighty car-warrior of strong arms, viz, Dhrishtadyumna, quickly descending from that car whose steeds had been slain, ascended the great car of Abhimanyu.
Mbh.6.80.4224 And king Yudhishthira also, beholding both Dhrishtadyumna and Vrikodara, smelt their heads, and filled with joy, retired to his tents
Mbh.6.83.4358 Meanwhile, O monarch, Dhrishtadyumna, the mighty son of Drupada, covered thy royal son in battle with innumerable straight shafts.
Mbh.6.83.4359 While, however, O Bharata, Dhrishtadyumna was thus shrouding him with his shafts, thy royal son was neither agitated nor struck with fear.
Mbh.6.83.4360 On the other hand, he speedily pierced Dhrishtadyumna in that battle first with sixty and then with thirty shafts.
Mbh.6.87.4584 Then Dhrishtadyumna, the prince of the Panchalas, and that mighty car-warrior Satyaki, greatly afflicted the Bharata host with showers of arrows and lances.
Mbh.6.87.4605 And similarly Satyaki also, O king, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata, surrounding their army, proceeded towards their tents.
Mbh.6.88.4653 The car-warriors of the Pandavas, too, headed by Dhrishtadyumna, uttering fierce shouts, rushed at him, firmly resolved on fight.
Mbh.6.90.4725 Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandin, and the mighty car-warrior Satyaki, accompanied, O king, by their forces, proceeded against Bhishma alone.
Mbh.6.97.5173 Other warriors headed by Dhrishtadyumna battled with thy troops, while thy troops, also, all battled with those of the Pandavas.
Mbh.6.99.5332 Beholding Bhishma thus surrounded by a large number of cars, Arjuna, that foremost of car-warriors, addressed Dhrishtadyumna and said, O prince, place that tiger among men, Sikhandin, today in front of Bhishma, I myself will be his protector, O prince of Panchala
Mbh.6.100.5342 And Dhrishtadyumna, and Virata, and that mighty car-warrior, viz, Satyaki, these destroyers of hostile ranks, stood, supported by a large force.
Mbh.6.104.5528 Then Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandin and Virata and Drupada, falling upon Bhishma in that battle, struck that mighty car-warrior with numerous arrows.
Mbh.6.104.5529 Bhishma then, having pierced Dhrishtadyumna and Virata each with three arrows, sped a long shaft, O Bharata, at Drupada.
Mbh.6.104.5533 Dhrishtadyumna then, in that battle, blazing up with wrath like fire, struck the grandsire with three shafts in his arms and chest.
Mbh.6.104.5540 Then the five sons of Draupadi, and the five Kaikeya brothers and Satyaki also of the Satwata race, headed by Yudhishthira, all rushed towards Ganga's son, desirous of protecting the Panchalas headed by Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.6.107.5655 And piercing Dhrishtadyumna also, that mighty warrior uttered a loud roar.
Mbh.6.107.5657 And Dhrishtadyumna pierced him with seventy shafts, and Bhimasena with seven.
Mbh.6.109.5915 And behind them was Dhrishtadyumna protected by the Panchalas.
Mbh.6.109.5916 Next to Dhrishtadyumna, behind, marched the royal lord Yudhishthira, accompanied by the twins, filling the air with leonine shouts, O bull of Bharata's race.
Mbh.6.110.6000 The brave Dhrishtadyumna, and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha also, are vigorously breaking and driving away my army in this fierce conflict.
Mbh.6.111.6021 And so Dhrishtadyumna also, O king, and the mighty car-warrior Abhimanyu, having heard those words of Partha, joyfully rushed at Bhishma.
Mbh.6.111.6026 Kritavarman, O king, resisted Dhrishtadyumna who had reached the presence of Bhishma and who was exerting himself with great activity and vigour in that battle.
Mbh.6.111.6037 Dhrishtadyumna, that mighty car-warrior, excited with rage, rushed against Bhishma alone and addressing the troops, repeatedly said in a loud voice, There, Arjuna, that delighter of Kuru's race, is proceeding against Bhishma in battle.
Mbh.6.112.6118 That mighty car-warrior, viz, the son of Hridika resisted Dhrishtadyumna, that foremost of car-warriors, who was advancing to battle from desire of Bhishma's slaughter.
Mbh.6.113.6183 Satyaki, and Abhimanyu and Dhrishtadyumna, and Vrikodara, and the twins, even these are protecting that ruler of men, viz, king Yudhishthira.
Mbh.6.115.6278 At this, the heroic warriors of the Pandava army, and Dhrishtadyumna the son of Prishata, rushed in battle against Bhishma who was advancing like Death himself with wide-open mouth.
Mbh.6.115.6284 Then Dhrishtadyumna, O king, commanded all the troops, saying, Rush against the son of Ganga.
Mbh.6.116.6306 Then Dhrishtadyumna, O king, and Pandu's son Yudhishthira, having heard those words of Bhishma urged their array on.
Mbh.6.116.6324 And Dhrishtadyumna, the prince of Panchala, excited with fury and accompanied by his brothers, proceeded against Drona, that foremost of all wielders of weapons, invincible, and irresistible.
Mbh.6.117.6386 Drona, encountering Dhrishtadyumna the prince of the Panchalas in dreadful battle, fought fiercely with his straight shafts.
Mbh.6.119.6514 Then the generalissimo of the Pandava army, viz, the mighty car-warrior Dhrishtadyumna, addressing his soldiers, said, Ye Somakas, accompanied by the Srinjayas, rush ye at Ganga's son'
Mbh.6.119.6534 Then the king of the Panchalas the valiant Dhrishtaketu, Bhimasena the son of Pandu, Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, Chekitana, and the five Kaikaya brothers, and the mighty-armed Satyaki and Subhadra's son, and Ghatotkacha, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Sikhandin, and the valiant Kuntibhoja, and Susarman, and Virata, these and many other powerful warriors of the Pandava army, afflicted by the shafts of Bhishma, seemed to sink in an ocean of grief, Phalguni, however, rescued them all.
Mbh.6.120.6558 He then pierced the six Pandava warriors, viz, Satyaki, and Bhima, and Dhananjaya the son of Pandu, and Drupada, and Virata, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, with many excellent arrows of great sharpness and dreadful whizz and exceeding impetuosity, and capable of piercing through every kind of armour.
Mbh.6.120.6567 They were Satyaki, and Bhimasena, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, and both Virata and Drupada, and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, and the wrathful Abhimanyu.
