Mbh.1.2.552 In this, leaving his brothers who dropped one after another and Draupadi also, Yudhishthira went on his journey without once looking back on them.
Mbh.1.61.2936 And having obtained Draupadi as their common wife they then dwelt there for a year.
Mbh.1.63.3169 And from the sacrificial altar was born Krishna Draupadi resplendent and handsome, of bright features and excellent beauty.
Mbh.1.67.3546 And, O bull in Bharata's race, they who became the five sons of Draupadi, those bulls amongst the Bharata princes, were the celestials known as the Viswas.
Mbh.1.67.3584 And the faultless Draupadi, slender-waisted like the wasp, was born of a portion of Sachi the queen of the celestials, in the line of Drupada.
Mbh.1.95.5339 And there obtaining Draupadi for a wife they returned to Hastinapura.
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.1.167.8586 Vaisampayana continued, Thus questioned, O monarch, by those bulls among men, the Brahmana narrated all the particulars about the birth of Draupadi
Mbh.1.185.9350 SECTION CLXXXVI Swayamvara Parva Vaisampayana said, Then those tigers among men, those brothers, the five Pandavas, set out for Panchala to behold that country and Draupadi and the festivities in view of her marriage.
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.1.188.9433 And beholding those elephants in rut, the five Pandavas, attracted towards Draupadi like mighty elephants towards a lake overgrown with lotuses, or like fire covered with ashes, Krishna the foremost of Yadu heroes began to reflect.
Mbh.1.188.9436 Biting their nether lips in wrath, the other heroes there, sons and grandsons of kings, with their eyes and hearts and thoughts set on Krishna, looked with expanded eyes on Draupadi alone without noticing the Pandavas.
Mbh.1.188.9437 And the sons of Pritha also, of mighty arms, and the illustrious twin heroes, beholding Draupadi, were all likewise struck by the shafts of Kama.
Mbh.1.188.9447 But seeing Karna, Draupadi loudly said, I will not select a Suta for my lord'
Mbh.1.189.9486 And Arjuna the accomplisher of inconceivable feats, having won Draupadi by his success in the amphitheatre, was saluted with reverence by all the Brahmanas.
Mbh.1.192.9595 And taking their seats, they began to think of Draupadi alone.
Mbh.1.192.9596 Indeed, after those princes of immeasurable energy had looked at Draupadi, the God of Desire invaded their hearts and continued to crush all their senses.
Mbh.1.192.9600 And the king, then, from fear of a division amongst the brothers, addressing all of them, said, The auspicious Draupadi shall be the common wife of us all'
Mbh.1.197.9790 Indeed, O Brahmana, I cannot say, Let Draupadi become the common wife of five brothers'
Mbh.1.197.9797 Even she hath commanded us to enjoy Draupadi as we do anything obtained as alms.
Mbh.1.198.9878 And the celestial Sri herself who had been appointed as their wife is this Draupadi of extraordinary beauty.
Mbh.1.201.9959 SECTION CCII Viduragamana Parva Vaisampayana said, The news was carried unto all the monarchs who had come to the Self-choice of Draupadi by their trusted spies that the handsome Draupadi had been united in marriage with the sons of Pandu.
Mbh.1.201.9966 After the Self-choice was over, all the monarchs who had come thither, hearing that Draupadi had been united with the Pandavas, set out for their own dominions.
Mbh.1.201.9967 And Duryodhana, hearing that Draupadi had selected the owner of white steeds Arjuna as her lord, became greatly depressed.
Mbh.1.201.9969 Then Duhsasana, blushing with shame, addressed his brother softly and said, If Arjuna had not disguised himself as a Brahmana, he could never have succeeded in obtaining Draupadi.
Mbh.1.201.9976 Then Vidura, having learnt that Draupadi had been won by the Pandavas and that the sons of Dhritarashtra had come back to Hastinapura in shame, their pride humiliated, became filled with joy.
Mbh.1.201.9981 And the king immediately ordered various ornaments to be made for Draupadi.
Mbh.1.201.9982 And he commanded that both Draupadi and his son Duryodhana should be brought with pomp to Hastinapura.
Mbh.1.201.9983 It was then that Vidura told the monarch that Draupadi had chosen the Pandavas for her lords, and that those heroes were all alive and at peace, and that they had been received with great respect by king Drupada.
Mbh.1.205.10117 And at thy command, O king, let plenty of ornaments of pure gold be given unto Draupadi.
Mbh.1.207.10202 And he repaired thither carrying with him numerous jewels and various kinds of wealth for Draupadi and the Pandavas and Yajnasena also.
Mbh.1.207.10209 He then gave, O monarch, unto the Pandavas and Kunti and Draupadi, and unto Drupada and Drupada's sons, the gems and various kinds of wealth that the Kauravas had sent through him.
Mbh.1.209.10289 How did their wife Draupadi obey them all?
Mbh.1.209.10304 Hearing of the Rishi's arrival Draupadi, purifying herself properly, came with a respectful attitude to where Narada was with the Pandavas.
Mbh.1.213.10463 Therefore, from affection I tell you, ye foremost ones of Bharata's line, that if you desire to do anything agreeable to me, make some such arrangements that you may not quarrel with one another for the sake of Draupadi'
Mbh.1.213.10465 And the rule they made was that when one of them would be sitting with Draupadi, any of the other four who would see that one thus must retire into the forest for twelve years, passing his days as a Brahmacharin.
Mbh.1.214.10472 Like the river Saraswati decked with elephants, which again take pleasure in that stream, Draupadi took great delight in her five heroic husbands and they too took delight in her.
Mbh.1.214.10503 In beholding thee sitting with Draupadi, I have violated the rule established by ourselves.
Mbh.1.215.10547 The exile of any one amongst you, therefore, is only for the sake of Draupadi.
Mbh.1.222.10800 At last the hero went unto Draupadi.
Mbh.1.222.10801 Draupadi, from jealousy, spoke unto him, saying, Why tarriest thou here, O son of Kunti?
Mbh.1.222.10810 Then that girl of face like the full moon hastily went unto Draupadi and worshipped her, saying, I am thy maid'
Mbh.1.222.10812 Bhadra then, with a delighted heart, said unto Draupadi, So be it'
Mbh.1.222.10876 And because the child that Draupadi bore to Bhimasena was born after Bhima had performed a thousand Soma sacrifices, he came to be called Sutasoma.
Mbh.1.222.10879 Again the son that Draupadi bore to Sahadeva was born under the constellation called Vahni-daivata Krittika, therefore was he called after the generalissimo of the celestial host, Srutasena Kartikeya.
Mbh.1.222.10880 The sons of Draupadi were born, each at the interval of one year, and all of them became renowned and much attached to one another.
Mbh.1.223.10908 Draupadi and Subhadra, exhilarated with wine, began to give away unto the women so sporting, their costly robes and ornaments.
Mbh.2.2.35 And bidding her farewell and uttering benedictions on his handsome sister, he of the Vrishni race, next saw Draupadi and Dhaumya.
Mbh.2.2.36 That best of men duly made obeisance unto Dhaumya, and consoling Draupadi obtained leave from her.
Mbh.2.2.62 And that tiger among men, dismissing all his relatives, brothers, and sons, sought to make himself happy in the company of Draupadi.
Mbh.2.24.1125 And, O Bharata, that chastiser of all foes having thus caused Jarasandha to be slain, took leave of Yudhishthira and Pritha, and Draupadi and Subhadra, and Bhimasena and Arjuna and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva.
Mbh.2.24.1129 And, O king, the Pandavas passed their days, continuing to gladden the heart of Draupadi.
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.2.44.1836 After this, Kesava bade farewell to Draupadi and Subhadra.
Mbh.2.47.1935 They have obtained Draupadi for wife and Drupada with his sons as also Vasudeva of great prowess as allies, capable of helping them in subjugating the whole world.
Mbh.2.49.2088 At that, Bhima with Arjuna once more laughed derisively, and Draupadi also accompanied by other females joined in the laughter.
Mbh.2.57.2351 And the next day, the king accompanied by his relatives and attendants and taking with him also the women of the household with Draupadi in their midst, set out for the capital of the Kurus.
Mbh.2.64.2639 Yudhishthira said, With Draupadi as stake, who is neither short nor tall, neither spare nor corpulent, and who is possessed of blue curly locks, I will now play with thee.
Mbh.2.64.2645 O king, making the slender-waisted Draupadi, who is even such as my stake, I will play with thee, O son of Suvala
Mbh.2.65.2661 SECTION LXV Duryodhana said, Come, Kshatta, bring hither Draupadi the dear and loved wife of the Pandavas.
Mbh.2.66.2691 and casting his eyes upon the Pratikamin in attendance, commanded him, in the midst of all those reverend seniors, saying, Go Pratikamin, and bring thou Draupadi hither.
Mbh.2.66.2696 And he said, Yudhishthira having been intoxicated with dice, Duryodhana, O Draupadi, hath won thee.
Mbh.2.66.2699 Draupadi said, Why, O Pratikamin, dost thou say so?
Mbh.2.66.2705 Draupadi said, O son of the Suta race, go, and ask that gambler present in the assembly, whom he hath lost first, himself, or me.
Mbh.2.66.2707 Vaisampayana continued, The messenger coming back to the assembly told all present the words of Draupadi.
Mbh.2.66.2708 And he spoke unto Yudhishthira sitting in the midst of the kings, these words, Draupadi hath asked thee, Whose lord wert thou at the time thou lost me in play?
Mbh.2.66.2713 Vaisampayana continued, The messenger, obedient to the command of Duryodhana, going once again to the palace, himself much distressed, said unto Draupadi, O princess, they that are in the assembly are summoning thee.
Mbh.2.66.2716 Draupadi said, The great ordainer of the world hath, indeed, ordained so.
Mbh.2.66.2723 Vaisampayana continued, The Suta, hearing these words of Yajnaseni, came back to the assembly and repeated the words of Draupadi.
Mbh.2.66.2725 Yudhishthira, however, O bull of the Bharata race, hearing of Duryodhana's intentions, sent a trusted messenger unto Draupadi, directing that although she was attired in one piece of cloth with her navel itself exposed, in consequence of her season having come, she should come before her father-in-law weeping bitterly.
Mbh.2.66.2737 At these words, Draupadi, rising up in great affliction, rubbed her pale face with her hands, and distressed she ran to the place where the ladies of Dhritarashtra's household were.
Mbh.2.66.2745 But Dussasana dragging Draupadi forcibly by her black locks while she was praying piteously unto Krishna and Vishnu who were Narayana and Nara on earth, said unto her, Whether thy season hath come or not, whether thou art attired in one piece of cloth or entirely naked, when thou hast been won at dice and made our slave, thou art to live amongst our serving-women as thou pleasest
Mbh.2.66.2783 Draupadi said, The king was summoned to this assembly and though possessing no skill at dice, he was made to play with skilful, wicked, deceitful and desperate gamblers.
Mbh.2.66.2795 This, however, I regard as a highly improper act, this act of staking Draupadi.
Mbh.2.66.2823 This son of Pandu, while deeply engaged in one of these vicious acts, urged thereto by deceitful gamblers, made Draupadi a stake.
Mbh.2.66.2824 The innocent Draupadi is, besides, the common wife of all the sons of Pandu.
Mbh.2.66.2827 Reflecting upon all these circumstances, I regard Draupadi as not won
Mbh.2.66.2837 O bull of the Bharata race, Draupadi is included in all the possessions of Yudhishthira.
Mbh.2.66.2839 Draupadi had been mentioned by Suvala and approved of as a stake by the Pandavas.
Mbh.2.66.2843 This Draupadi, however, hath many husbands.
Mbh.2.66.2848 Take off the robes of the Pandavas as also the attire of Draupadi.
Mbh.2.66.2851 Vaisampayana continued, When the attire of Draupadi was being thus dragged, the thought of Hari, And she herself cried aloud, saying, O Govinda, O thou who dwellest in Dwaraka, O Krishna, O thou who art fond of cow-herdesses of Vrindavana.
Mbh.2.66.2856 Hearing the words of Draupadi, Krishna was deeply moved.
Mbh.2.66.2859 And, O monarch as the attire of Draupadi was being dragged, after one was taken off, another of the same kind, appeared covering her.
Mbh.2.66.2863 And the kings present in that assembly beholding that most extraordinary of all sights in the world, began to applaud Draupadi and censure the son of Dhritarashtra.
Mbh.2.66.2870 And when a mass of clothes had been gathered in that assembly, all dragged from the person of Draupadi, Dussasana, tired and ashamed, sat down.
Mbh.2.66.2875 the Kauravas answer not the question that hath been put to them by Draupadi.
Mbh.2.66.2877 Then Vidura, that master of the science of morality, waving his hands and silencing every one, spake these words, Ye that are in this assembly, Draupadi having put her question is weeping helplessly.
Mbh.2.66.2922 Vidura continued, Let all the persons, therefore, present in this assembly hearing these high truths of morality, reflect upon what should be the answer to the question asked by Draupadi.
Mbh.2.66.2925 And thereupon Dussasana began to drag before all the spectators the helpless and modest Draupadi, trembling and crying piteously unto the Pandavas her lords
Mbh.2.67.2926 SECTION LXVIII Draupadi said, Wait a little, thou worst of men, thou wicked-minded Dussasana.
Mbh.2.67.2931 Vaisampayana said, Dragged with greater force than before, the afflicted and helpless Draupadi, undeserving of such treatment, falling down upon the ground, thus wept in that assembly of the Kurus, Alas, only once before, on the occasion of the Swayamvara, I was beheld by the assembled kings in the amphitheatre, and never even once beheld afterwards.
Mbh.2.68.2959 SECTION LXIX Vaisampayana said, The kings present in that assembly, from tear of Duryodhana, uttered not a word, good or ill, although they beheld Draupadi crying piteously in affliction like a female osprey, and repeatedly appealing to them.
Mbh.2.69.3004 Answer thou the question that hath been asked by Draupadi.
Mbh.2.69.3007 desirous of encouraging the son of Radha and insulting Bhima, quickly uncovered his left thigh that was like unto the stem of a plantain tree or the trunk of an elephant and which was graced with every auspicious sign and endued with the strength of thunder, and showed it to Draupadi in her very sight.
Mbh.2.69.3033 And the king Dhritarashtra thereupon said, Thou wicked-minded Duryodhana, thou wretch, destruction hath all ready overtaken thee when thou insultest in language such as this the wife of these bulls among the Kurus, especially their wedded wife Draupadi.
Mbh.2.69.3035 Draupadi said, O bull of the Bharata race, if thou will grant me a boon, I ask the handsome Yudhishthira, obedient to every duty, be freed from slavery.
Mbh.2.69.3042 Draupadi said, I ask, O king, that Bhimasena and Dhananjaya and the twins also, with their cars and bows, freed from bondage, regain their liberty'
Mbh.2.69.3046 Draupadi said, O best of kings, O illustrious one, covetousness always bringeth about loss of virtue.
Mbh.2.70.3051 SECTION LXXI Karna said, We have never heard of such an act as this one of Draupadi, performed by any of the women noted in this world for their beauty.
Mbh.2.70.3052 When the sons of both Pandu and Dhritarashtra were excited with wrath, this Draupadi became unto the sons of Pandu as their salvation.
Mbh.2.71.3102 And accompanied by Draupadi and ascending their cars which were all of the hue of the clouds, with cheerful hearts they all set out for that best of cities called Indraprastha
Mbh.2.72.3119 Who is there among them that will forgive that insult to Draupadi?
Mbh.2.75.3241 Soon enough shall I, at the command of Yudhishthira and remembering the wrongs to Draupadi, make the earth destitute of the sons of Dhritarashtra'
Mbh.2.76.3258 Thou knowest every rule of morality; Dhananjaya is ever victorious in battle; Bhimasena is the slayer of foes; Nakula is the gatherer of wealth; Sahadeva hath administrative talents, Dhaumya is the foremost of all conversant with the vedas; and the well-behaved Draupadi is conversant with virtue and economy.
Mbh.2.77.3277 SECTION LXXVIII Vaisampayana said, Then when Draupadi was about to set out she went unto the illustrious Pritha and solicited her leave.
Mbh.2.77.3281 And Kunti, terribly afflicted upon beholding Draupadi on the eve of her journey, uttered these words in a voice choked with grief, O child, grieve not that this great calamity hath overtaken thee.
Mbh.2.77.3292 the princess Draupadi bathed in tears, and clad in one piece of cloth, stained with blood, and with hair dishevelled left her mother-in-law.
Mbh.2.77.3316 Alas, O Krishna, Draupadi, why dost thou leave me so?
Mbh.2.78.3348 And how the illustrious Draupadi?
Mbh.2.78.3368 And Draupadi goeth, attired in one piece of stained cloth, her hair dishevelled, and weeping, signifying, The wives of those for whom I have been reduced to such a plight, shall on the fourteenth year hence be deprived of husbands, sons and relatives and dear ones and smeared all over with blood, with hair dishevelled and all in their feminine seasons enter Hastinapore having offered oblations of water unto the manes of those they will have lost.
Mbh.2.79.3434 Enraged at the ill treatment of Draupadi, the Brahmanas in a body did not perform that evening their Agnihotra ceremony.
Mbh.3.1.13 And issuing through Vardhamana gate of the city, the Pandavas bearing their weapons and accompanied by Draupadi set out in a northernly direction.
Mbh.3.2.70 These my brothers that are to procure fruits and roots and the deer of the forest are stupefied with grief arising from their afflictions and on account of the distress of Draupadi and the loss of our kingdom!
Mbh.3.3.269 And, O exalted one, wending then with Draupadi to the kitchen, and adored by her duly, the son of Pandu set himself to cook their day's food.
Mbh.3.5.327 And arriving at Kamyaka on a car drawn by swift steeds, he saw Yudhishthira the just, sitting with Draupadi at a retired spot, surrounded by his brothers and the Brahmanas.
Mbh.3.11.587 And having rid the forest of its pest, the victorious Yudhishthira the just, began to live in that dwelling of theirs, with Draupadi.
Mbh.3.11.588 And those bulls of the Bharata race comforting Draupadi began to cheerfully extol Bhima with glad hearts.
Mbh.3.12.735 On these grounds I deserve to be ever protected by thee, O Kesava, viz, our relationship, thy respect for me, our friendship, and thy lordship over me Vaisampayana continued, In that assembly of heroes Vasudeva then spake unto the weeping Draupadi as follows, O fair lady, the wives of those with whom thou art angry, shall weep even like thee, beholding their husbands dead on the ground, weltering in blood and their bodies covered with the arrows of Vivatsu!
Mbh.3.12.739 Hearing those words of Achyuta in reply, Draupadi looked obliquely at her third husband Arjuna.
Mbh.3.12.740 And, O mighty king, Arjuna said unto Draupadi, O thou of beautiful coppery eyes, grieve not!
Mbh.3.22.1118 And he was duly honoured by Dhaumya, and worshipped with tears by Draupadi.
Mbh.3.22.1121 And after he of the Dasharha race had departed, Dhristadyumna, the son of Prishata, also set out for his own city, taking with him the sons of Draupadi.
Mbh.3.25.1186 And that illustrious and all-knowing Muni, of unrivalled energy, beholding Draupadi and Yudhishthira and Bhima and Arjuna, in the midst of the ascetics, smiled, recollecting Rama in his mind.
Mbh.3.28.1284 SECTION XXVIII Draupadi continued, On this subject, the ancient story of the conversation between Prahlada and Vali, the son of Virochana, is quoted as an example.
Mbh.3.28.1334 Draupadi continued, I, therefore, regard, O king, that the time hath come for thee to put forth thy might!
Mbh.3.29.1384 If the kings also, O Draupadi, giveth way to wrath, his subjects soon meet with destruction.
Mbh.3.29.1405 Having listened, O Draupadi, to these verses in respect of forgiveness, content thyself!
Mbh.3.30.1419 SECTION XXX Draupadi said, I bow down unto Dhatri and Vidhatri who have thus clouded thy sense!
Mbh.3.32.1534 SECTION XXXII Draupadi said, I do not ever disregard or slander religion, O son of Pritha!
Mbh.3.34.1775 When king Duryodhana, the son of Dhritarashtra, coveting our kingdom, plunged us into misery and even slavery, then, O Bhima, it was Draupadi that rescued us.
Mbh.3.34.1794 O Bhima, this is my great grief that we could not do anything even beholding Draupadi persecuted in that way.
Mbh.3.49.2510 Thy sons, having dragged Draupadi, and thereby incensed the sons of Pandu, have brought this frightful and horrifying calamity upon themselves.
Mbh.3.49.2511 Beholding Duryodhana showing both his thighs unto Draupadi, Bhima said with quivering lips, wretch!
Mbh.3.50.2537 And Draupadi of pure fame fed her husbands and the Brahmanas, as if she was their mother; and last of all took her food herself.
Mbh.3.51.2545 Those mighty warriors of celestial origin, unrivalled in battle by anybody, filled with rage at the remembrance of that insult to Draupadi, will show no forgiveness.
Mbh.3.51.2567 And they also said unto Draupadi of pure deeds in the hearing of Vasudeva himself, these words, O lady, in consequence of thy anger, Duryodhana shall lay down his life.
Mbh.3.80.3929 And, O monarch, hearing her lament in this strain, that slayer of hostile heroes, Bhimasena, addressed Draupadi in these words, O blessed lady of slender waist, the agreeable words thou utterest delight my heart like the quaffing of nectar.
Mbh.3.140.7102 Do thou in expectation of my return, cautiously wait at the source of the Ganga, protecting Draupadi till I come back'
Mbh.3.143.7275 SECTION CXLIII Vaisampayana said, When the high-souled sons of Pandu had proceeded only two miles, Draupadi unaccustomed to travel on foot, sank down.
Mbh.3.144.7311 SECTION CXLIV Yudhishthira said, O Bhima, let this mighty and heroic Rakshasa chief, thy legitimate son, devoted to us, and truthful, and conversant with virtue carry his mother Draupadi without delay.
Mbh.3.144.7352 And those tigers among men, the Pandavas of the god-like appearance, felt delight in witnessing the various amusements of Draupadi
Mbh.3.145.7368 And desirous of pleasing Draupadi the mighty one, free from fear or confusion, ascended the peak depending on the strength of his arms.
Mbh.3.145.7387 Intent upon gratifying Draupadi exiled unto the woods, as he was ranging the beautiful Gandhamadana, he remembered the many and various woes caused by Duryodhana.
Mbh.3.145.7392 And having for his provisions on the journey the words of Draupadi, the mighty son of Pandu, Vrikodara Bhima, endued with strength and the swiftness of the wind, with his mind and sight fixed on the blooming slopes of the mountain, proceeded speedily, making the earth tremble with his tread, even as doth a hurricane at the equinox; and frightening herds of elephants and grinding lions and tigers and deer and uprooting and smashing large trees and tearing away by force plants and creepers, like unto an elephant ascending higher and higher the summit of a mountain; and roaring fiercely even as a cloud attended with thunder.
Mbh.3.151.7713 And having for his provisions on the journey the words of Draupadi, Bhima went on with speed, his mind and sight fixed on the blooming slopes of the mountain.
Mbh.3.156.7840 His object was to possess himself of the bows, the quivers and the other material implements belonging to the Pandavas; and he had been watching for an opportunity of ravishing Draupadi.
Mbh.3.156.7843 And once on a day while that represser of foes, Bhimasena, was out a hunting, he the Rakshasa, seeing Ghatotkacha and his followers scatter in different directions and seeing those vow-observing great rishis, of ascetic wealth, viz; Lomasa and the rest, away for bathing and collecting flowers, assumed a different form, gigantic and monstrous and frightful; and having secured all the arms of the Pandavas as also Draupadi, that wicked one fled away taking the three Pandavas.
Mbh.3.156.7863 And if thou beest really evil-disposed and devoid of all virtue, do thou render us back our weapons and ravish Draupadi after fight.
Mbh.3.156.7867 Then addressing Draupadi, Nakula and Sahadeva, Yudhishthira said, Do ye not entertain any fear of this wretched Rakshasa, I have checked his speed.
Mbh.3.156.7883 And here he saw his two brothers and the noble-minded Draupadi on the shoulders of the demon, and Sahadeva on the ground rebuking the Rakshasa and also that stupid Rakshasa himself deprived of sense by Fate, going round in different directions through bewilderment caused by Destiny.
Mbh.3.156.7884 And finding his brothers and Draupadi being carried off, Bhima of mighty strength was fired with wrath, and addressed the Rakshasa, saying, I had ere this found thee out for a wicked wight from thy scrutiny of our weapons; but as I had no apprehension of thee, so I had not slain thee at that time.
Mbh.3.157.7922 And once on a time, remembering his brother Jaya Arjuna, Yudhishthira summoned all his brothers, together with Draupadi and said these words, We have passed these four years peacefully ranging the woods.
Mbh.3.157.7953 And as those heroes entered with Draupadi and the high-souled Brahmanas, they heard notes uttered by the mouths of birds, exceedingly sweet and graceful to the ear and causing delight and dulcet and broken by reason of excess of animal spirits.
Mbh.3.157.7994 Vaisampayana said, Having attained excellent state, those valiant and warlike repressers of foes with Draupadi and the high-souled Brahmanas were exceedingly delighted at heart, and they were not satiated by beholding that monarch of mountains.
Mbh.3.159.8065 Thereupon, like a high-mettled bull that hath been struck, Bhimasena, considering himself as censured by Draupadi, could not bear that.
Mbh.3.159.8069 And free from fear or affliction, the Pandava taking his mace, proceeded to that monarch of mountains causing the delight of Draupadi.
Mbh.3.160.8110 Thereupon, entrusting Draupadi to the charge of Arshtishena and equipped in their arms, those valiant and mighty charioteers together began to ascend the summit of the mountain.
Mbh.3.178.8859 Thereupon, O Bharata, the intelligent Yudhishthira the just, inferring some great calamity to be imminent, asked Draupadi, saying, Where is Bhima'
Mbh.3.178.8861 Hearing this, that mighty-armed king set out with Dhaumya, after having said unto Dhananjaya, Thou shouldst protect Draupadi'
Mbh.3.180.8981 On hearing that, his three brothers and all the Brahmanas and the renowned Draupadi too were covered with shame.
Mbh.3.188.9507 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed, the sons of Pritha and those bulls among men, the twins, along with Draupadi, all bowed down unto Janardana.
Mbh.3.231.11728 SECTION CCXXXI Draupadi-Satyabhama Samvada Vaisampayana said, After those Brahmanas and the illustrious sons of Pandu had taken their seats, Draupadi and Satyabhama entered the hermitage.
Mbh.3.231.11731 And the slender-waisted Satyabhama, the favourite wife of Krishna and the daughter of Satrajit, then asked Draupadi in private, saying, By what behaviour is it, O daughter of Drupada, that thou art able to rule the sons of Pandu, those heroes endued with strength and beauty and like unto the Lokapalas themselves?
Mbh.3.232.11800 SECTION CCXXXII Draupadi said, I shall now indicate to thee, for attracting the heart of thy husbands a way that is free from deceit.
Mbh.3.233.11841 And the chief of the Yadavas, comforting Draupadi with a smile and causing the Pandavas to return, set out for his own city, with swift horses yoked unto his car
Mbh.3.257.12595 And Arjuna and both the twins and the illustrious Draupadi, and the mighty Bhima, he that was strongest of all men, experienced the most poignant pain in casting their eyes on Yudhishthira.
Mbh.3.261.12796 Meanwhile, O king, the excellent princess Draupadi, devoted to her husbands, was in great anxiety about the food to be provided for the Munis.
Mbh.3.261.12814 Beholding Vasudeva, Draupadi bowed down to him in great joy and informed him of the arrival of the Munis and every other thing.
Mbh.3.261.12843 Seeing them absorbed in such reflections and breathing long deep sighs at frequent intervals, the illustrious Krishna suddenly appeared to them and addressed them these words: Knowing, ye sons of Pritha, your danger from that wrathful Rishi, I was implored by Draupadi to come, and therefore have I come here speedily.
Mbh.3.261.12849 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing Kesava's words, the sons of Pritha, with Draupadi, became easy in mind.
Mbh.3.261.12852 Thus dismissed, he repaired to his capital and the Pandavas too, O blessed lord, wandering from forest to forest passed their days merrily with Draupadi.
Mbh.3.262.12857 And one day those valiant men, the conquerors of their foes, went about in all directions in search of game for feeding the Brahmanas in their company, leaving Draupadi alone at the hermitage, with the permission of the great ascetic Trinavindu, resplendent with ascetic grandeur, and of their spiritual guide Dhaumya.
Mbh.3.262.12860 And in that secluded place, he found the beautiful Draupadi, the beloved and celebrated wife of the Pandavas, standing at the threshold of the hermitage.
Mbh.3.264.12889 SECTION CCLXIV Vaisampayana continued, The princess Draupadi, thus questioned by that ornament of Sivi's race, moved her eyes gently, and letting go her hold of the Kadamva blanch and arranging her silken apparel she said, I am aware, O prince, that it is not proper for a person like me to address you thus, but as there is not another man or woman here to speak with thee and as I am alone here just now, let me, therefore, speak.
Mbh.3.265.12908 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed, the evil-minded Jayadratha, the king of Sindhu, Sauvira and other countries, said, I must see Draupadi'
Mbh.3.265.12912 Draupadi replied, Kunti's son king Yudhishthira of the race of Kuru, his brothers, myself, and all those of whom thou hast enquired of, are well.
Mbh.3.266.12950 Draupadi replied, Though I am so powerful, why doth the king of Sauvira yet consider me so powerless.
Mbh.3.267.12988 I hope no cruel wretches have done any harm to the princess Draupadi possessed of incomparable beauty and large eyes and who is the second self of every one of those bulls of the Kuru race?
Mbh.3.267.13011 And possessed of the prowess of Indra, they had been filled with fury at the insult offered to Draupadi.
Mbh.3.268.13017 Thus addressed, Draupadi replied, Having done this violent deed calculated to shorten thy life, what will it avail thee now, O fool, to know the names of those great warriors, for, now that my heroic husbands are come, not one of ye will be left alive in battle.
Mbh.3.269.13079 And in that general confusion, the wretch, setting down Draupadi there, fled for his life, pursuing the same forest path by which he had come.
Mbh.3.269.13080 And king Yudhishthira the just, seeing Draupadi with Dhaumya walking before, caused her to be taken up on a chariot by the heroic Sahadeva, the son of Madri.
Mbh.3.269.13087 Vaisampayana continued, Bhimasena, thus exhorted by Arjuna of great wisdom, turning to Yudhishthira, replied, saying, As a great many of the enemy's warriors have been slain and as they are flying in all directions, do thou, O king, now return home, taking with thee Draupadi and the twin brothers and high-souled Dhaumya, and console the princess after getting back to our asylum!
Mbh.3.269.13090 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words, Draupadi was greatly excited.
Mbh.3.269.13096 And while those Brahmanas were gravely bewailing the lot of Draupadi, Yudhishthira endued with great wisdom joined their company, with his brothers.
Mbh.3.269.13097 And beholding the king thus come back after having defeated the Saindhava and the Sauvira host and recovered Draupadi, they were all elated with joy!
Mbh.3.270.13138 Then Bhima said unto the king, Do thou tell Draupadi that this wretch hath become the slave of the Pandavas'
Mbh.3.270.13140 And Draupadi too, reading the king's mind, said, Let him off!
Mbh.3.271.13218 SECTION CCLXXI Janamejaya said, What did those tigers among men, the Pandavas, do, after they had suffered such misery in consequence of the ravishment of Draupadi
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.4.2.62 And, O Bharata should the king enquire, I will say that, I lived as a waiting maid of Draupadi in Yudhishthira's palace.
Mbh.4.3.92 Draupadi replied, There is a class of persons called Sairindhris who enter the services of other.
Mbh.4.3.96 And, O Bharata, on being questioned by the king, I shall say that I served as a waiting woman of Draupadi in Yudhishthira's household.
Mbh.4.4.110 And let all these maid-servants of Draupadi go to the Panchalas, with our charioteers and cooks.
Mbh.4.4.114 But it behoveth thee, O Yudhishthira, and Arjuna specially, to make provision for the protection of Draupadi.
Mbh.4.5.188 Vaisampayana continued, Thereupon like the leader of a herd of elephants, Arjuna speedily took up Draupadi, and on coming to the vicinity of the city, let her down.
Mbh.4.9.319 SECTION IX Vaisampayana said, Binding her black, soft, fine, long and faultless tresses with crisped ends into a knotted braid, Draupadi of black eyes and sweet smiles, throwing it upon her right shoulders, concealed it by her cloth.
Mbh.4.9.327 And it came to pass that while looking this way and that from the terrace, Virata's beloved queen, daughter of the king of Kekaya, saw Draupadi.
Mbh.4.9.329 Thereupon, Draupadi answered her, saying, O foremost of queen, I am Sairindhri.
Mbh.4.9.354 Draupadi replied, O auspicious lady, I am neither a goddess nor a Gandharvi, nor a Yakshi, nor a Rakshasi.
Mbh.4.9.359 Formerly I served Krishna's favourite queen Satyabhama, and also Draupadi, the wife of the Pandavas and the foremost beauty of the Kuru race.
Mbh.4.9.361 Draupadi herself called me Malini maker of garlands'
Mbh.4.9.369 Draupadi replied, O fair lady, neither Virata nor any other person will be able to have me, for my five youthful husbands, who are Gandharvas and sons of a Gandharva king of exceeding power, always protect me.
Mbh.4.9.376 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by Virata's wife, O Janamejaya, Krishna Draupadi ever devoted to her lords, began to live in that city.
Mbh.4.13.477 And Draupadi, herself in a pitiable condition, looked after all those brothers and behaved in such a way as to remain unrecognized.
Mbh.4.13.479 And those lords of men, the sons of Pandu, apprehensive of danger from the son of Dhritarashtra, continued to dwell there in concealment, watching over their wife Draupadi.
Mbh.4.13.526 And, O king, Draupadi distressed to see all those warriors suffer pain, sighed incessantly.
Mbh.4.14.542 And having consulted with Sudeshna thus, Kichaka went to princess Draupadi, and like a jackal in the forest accosting a lioness, spoke unto Krishna these words in a winning voice, Who and whose art thou, O beautiful one?
Mbh.4.14.573 Hearing these words of his, Draupadi replied, In desiring me, a female servant of low extraction, employed in the despicable office of dressing hair, O Suta's son, thou desirest one that deserves not that honour.
Mbh.4.14.580 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by the Sairindhri, the wicked Kichaka losing control over his senses and overcome by lust, although aware of the numerous evils of fornication, evils condemned by everybody and sometimes leading to the destruction of life itself, then spoke unto Draupadi, It behoveth thee not, O beauteous lady, O thou of graceful features, thus to disregard me who am, O thou of sweet smiles, under the power of Manmatha on thy account.
Mbh.4.15.623 And filled with apprehension, and weeping, Draupadi mentally prayed for the protection of the gods, and set out for Kichaka's abode for fetching wine.
Mbh.4.16.635 Hearing these words, Draupadi said, I have been sent to thee by the princess for taking away wine.
Mbh.4.16.639 And at this, Draupadi exclaimed, As I have never, from intoxication of the senses, been unfaithful to my husbands even at heart, by that Truth, O wretch, I shall behold thee dragged and lying powerless on the ground'
Mbh.4.16.645 Thereupon, O Bharata, the Rakshasa that had been appointed by Surya to protect Draupadi, gave Kichaka a shove with a force mighty as that of the wind.
Mbh.4.16.657 And the weeping Draupadi of fair hips, approaching the entrance of the court, and seeing her melancholy lords, desirous yet of keeping up the disguise duty-bound by their pledge, with eyes burning in fire, spoke these words unto the king of the Matsyas, Alas, the son of a Suta hath kicked today the proud and beloved wife of those whose foe can never sleep in peace even if four kingdoms intervene between him and them.
Mbh.4.16.697 Thus addressed, Draupadi said, As I went to bring wine for thee, Kichaka struck me in the court in the very presence of the king, as if in the midst of a solitary wood'
Mbh.4.16.699 Thereupon Draupadi answered, Even others will slay him, even they whom he hath wronged, I think it is clear that he will have to go to the abode of Yama this very day
Mbh.4.18.726 SECTION XVIII Draupadi said, What grief hath she not who hath Yudhishthira for her husband?
Mbh.4.18.730 What other princess, save Draupadi, would live having suffered such intense misery?
Mbh.4.19.755 SECTION XIX Draupadi said, This O Bharata, that I am going to tell thee is another great grief of mine.
Mbh.4.20.808 SECTION XX Draupadi said, Alas, on account of that desperate gambler, I am now under Sudeshna's command, living in the palace in the guise of a Sairindhri.
Mbh.4.20.852 And that mighty son of Kunti, holding the hands of Draupadi in his, shed copious tears.
Mbh.4.21.875 Hearing these words, Draupadi said, Unable, O Bhima, to bear my griefs, it is from grief alone that I have shed these tears.
Mbh.4.22.929 And when the night had passed away, Kichaka, rising in the morning, went to the palace, and accosted Draupadi saying, Throwing thee down in the court I kicked thee in the presence of the king.
Mbh.4.22.937 Draupadi replied, O Kichaka, know even this is my condition.
Mbh.4.22.943 Draupadi said, Do thou, when it is dark, go to the dancing-hall erected by the king of the Matsyas where the girls dance during the day, repairing to their respective homes at night.
Mbh.4.22.951 And reposing the fullest confidence in Draupadi, Kichaka, deprived of his senses by lust and absorbed in the contemplation of expected meeting, did not even perceive that the day had departed.
Mbh.4.22.952 Meanwhile, the beautiful Draupadi approaching her husband Bhima of the Kuru race, stood before him in the kitchen.
Mbh.4.22.966 Hearing these words of Bhima, Draupadi said, In order that, O lord, thou mayst not have to renounce the truth already pledged to me, do thou, O hero, slay Kichaka in secret'
Mbh.4.22.1015 And endued with mighty energy that hero then addressed Draupadi, that foremost of all women, saying, Come princess of Panchala, and see what hath become of that lustful wretch'
Mbh.4.22.1017 And lighting a torch then and showing Draupadi the body of Kichaka, that hero addressed her, saying, O thou of tresses ending in beautiful curls, those that solicit thee, endued as thou art with an excellent disposition and every virtue, will be slain by me even as this Kichaka hath been, O timid one'
Mbh.4.22.1019 And Draupadi also, that best of women, having caused Kichaka to be slain had her grief removed and experienced the greatest delight.
Mbh.4.23.1055 And beholding the tree that had been uprooted by Bhimasena, they set Draupadi free and ran breathlessly towards the city And seeing them run away, Bhima, that mighty son of the Wind-god, despatched, O foremost of kings, by means of that tree, a hundred and five of them unto the abode of Yama, like the wielder of the thunderbolt slaying the Danavas.
Mbh.4.23.1056 And setting Draupadi free from her bonds, he then, O king, comforted her.
Mbh.4.24.1084 And looking upon him with wonder-expanded eyes, Draupadi, by means of words intelligible to them alone, said, I bow unto that prince of the Gandharvas, who hath rescued me'
Mbh.4.24.1104 Vaisampayana continued, Then Draupadi, accompanied by those girls entered the royal abode, desirous of appearing before Sudeshna.
Mbh.4.36.1465 Draupadi said, Vrihannala, O hero, will without doubt, obey the words of thy younger sister, that damsel of graceful hips.
Mbh.4.44.1669 Where also is Draupadi, the princess of Panchala, famed as the gem among women, who followed the sons of Pandu after their defeat at dice to the forest'
Mbh.4.44.1672 And know thou that the Sairindhri is Draupadi, for whose sake the Kichakas have been slain'
Mbh.4.50.1936 The son of Pandu, however, is incapable of forgiving the sufferings of Draupadi.
Mbh.4.67.2655 And the virtuous Yudhishthira then glanced at Draupadi who was standing by his side.
Mbh.4.67.2656 Ever obedient to the wishes of her lord, the faultless Draupadi, understanding his meaning, and bringing a golden vessel filled with water, received the blood that flowed from his nose.
Mbh.4.71.2747 Which of these is Nakula, and which Sahadeva and where is the celebrated Draupadi?
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.5.1.9 And those princes, the sons of Draupadi, rivalling their fathers in valour, strength, grace, and prowess, sat upon excellent seats inlaid with gold.
Mbh.5.8.288 Whatever troubles were suffered by thee together with Draupadi on the occasion of the game at dice, the rude inhuman words uttered by the Suta's son, the misery inflicted by the Asura Jata and by Kichaka, O illustrious one, all the miseries experienced by Draupadi, like those formerly experienced by Damayanti, will all, O hero, end in joy.
Mbh.5.18.794 Thou shouldst not take it to heart that thou, O king of kings, hast suffered with Draupadi as also with thy high-minded brothers in the great forest.
Mbh.5.18.798 Then, O hero, thou wilt enjoy the whole of this earth, as far as the sea, with thy brothers and this Draupadi.
Mbh.5.22.971 Thou wilt also enquire about the welfare of all the assembled sons of Pandu and the Srinjayas and Satyaki and Virata and all the five sons of Draupadi, professing to be a messenger from me.
Mbh.5.29.1290 Now you should better stake your wife Draupadi.
Mbh.5.31.1399 Thou shouldst address the unforbearing prince Duryodhana also, when seated in the midst of the Kurus, beseeching him again and again, saying, The insults thou hadst offered to innocent and helpless Draupadi in the midst of the assembly, we will quietly bear, simply because we have no mind to see the Kurus slain.
Mbh.5.36.1891 Beholding Draupadi won at dice, I told thee before, O king, these words, They that are honest avoid deceit in play.
Mbh.5.48.2689 When the Kuru prince will behold the five heroic sons of Draupadi, tender in years but not in acts, and all well-versed in arms, rush, reckless of their lives, against the Kauravas, then will that son of Dhritarashtra repent for this war.
Mbh.5.48.2692 When he will behold the sons of Draupadi, those great bowmen, those heroes skilled in weapons and well-versed in all the ways of chariot-fighting, dart at the foe like snakes of virulent poison, then will the son of Dhritarashtra repent for this war.
Mbh.5.50.2875 The high-souled sons of Draupadi, tender in years but invincible in battle, and unapproachable like snakes of virulent poison, with them, will the Pandavas fight against you.
Mbh.5.56.3145 And excellent steed of large size, equal unto those of the Pandavas themselves in years and strength, endued with great swiftness and of handsome make, and all presented by the celestials, carry those youthful princes, the sons of Subhadra and Draupadi
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.5.59.3242 Neither Abhimanyu nor the Twins can repair to that place where are the two Krishnas and Draupadi and lady Satyabhama.
Mbh.5.73.3690 While the match at dice was in progress, the wretched Dussasana of most wicked soul, seizing that weeping lady by the hair dragged princess Draupadi, as if she had no protectors, to the assembly of kings, and in the presence of Bhishma and Drona and others, repeatedly called her, cow, cow!
Mbh.5.78.3837 Surely, thou knowest how Draupadi was insulted in the midst of the assembly by Duryodhana of sinful soul and how also we bore it with patience.
Mbh.5.90.4201 Waited upon at one time by a large train of servants, and adored by her husbands with every object of enjoyment, the possessor of every auspicious mark and accomplishment, how, O Achyuta, is that Draupadi now?
Mbh.5.90.4205 When I remember the forcible dragging of Draupadi to the assembly, then neither Vibhatsu nor Yudhishthira, nor Bhima, nor Nakula, nor Sahadeva, becometh an object of affection to me.
Mbh.5.90.4206 Never before had a heavier grief been mine than what pierced my heart when that wretch Dussasana, moved by wrath and covetousness, dragged Draupadi, then in her flow, and therefore clad in a single raiment, into the presence of her father-in-law in the assembly and exposed her to the gaze of all the Kurus.
Mbh.5.90.4242 Repairing thither, O mighty-armed one, say unto that foremost of all bearers of arms, Arjuna the heroic son of Pandu, Tread thou the path that may be pointed out to thee by Draupadi.
Mbh.5.128.5644 Who else is there, capable of insulting a brother's wife in the way thou didst or of dragging her into the assembly and addressing her in language thou hadst used towards Draupadi?
Mbh.5.137.6161 But that noble and fair Draupadi, however, while weeping in the midst of the assembly, had to hear those cruel and insulting words is what grieveth me most.
Mbh.5.137.6163 O thou of mighty arms, say unto that tiger among men, Arjuna, that foremost of all wielders of weapons, that he should always tread in the path that may be pointed out by Draupadi.
Mbh.5.138.6183 And Draupadi also was afflicted by thee in the assembly.
Mbh.5.139.6239 If the son of Pritha and Pandu stayeth even in the woods with Draupadi, and surrounded by his armed brothers, who is there, even in the possession of a kingdom, that is competent to vanquish him?
Mbh.5.139.6246 How canst thou vanquish the son of Pandu, when Draupadi who is truthful in speech and devoted to rigid vows and austerities, prayeth for his success?
Mbh.5.140.6269 The brothers, the five Pandavas, the son of Draupadi, and the invincible son of Subhadra, will all embrace thy feet.
Mbh.5.140.6272 During the sixth period, Draupadi also will come to thee as a wife.
Mbh.5.140.6274 Let the family priest of the Pandavas who is devoted to Vedic rites, and those bulls among men-those brothers, the five sons of Pandu, and the five sons of Draupadi, and the Panchalas, and the Chedis, and myself also, install thee as the lord of the whole earth.
Mbh.5.140.6279 Then Nakula and Sahadeva, and the five sons of Draupadi, and the Panchalas with that mighty car-warrior Sikhandin, will all proceed behind thee.
Mbh.5.141.6323 He that hath Hrishikesa for his guide, and Dhananjaya and that mighty car-warrior Bhima for his combatants, as also Nakula and Sahadeva, and the sons of Draupadi, is fit, O Madhava, to rule over the whole earth.
Mbh.5.151.6797 Indeed, the sons of Dhritarashtra will never be able to keep their ground when they will behold Dhananjaya with Yuyudhana as his second, and Abhimanyu, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Virata, and Drupada, and the other kings of fierce prowess, all lords of Akshauhinis.
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.5.152.6812 And truthful Draupadi, the princess of Panchala, accompanied by the ladies of the household, and surrounded by servants and maids, remained at Upaplavya.
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.5.165.7485 And he urged Sahadeva against Sakuni, and Chekitana against Sala, and the five sons of Draupadi against the Trigartas.
Mbh.5.166.7535 Humiliated, O king, by the Pandavas on the occasion of his, abducting Draupadi, and bearing that humiliation in mind, that slayer of hostile heroes will fight for thee.
Mbh.5.170.7709 Remembering the sufferings of Draupadi and the harsh speeches uttered after their defeat at dice, they will wander in battle like so many Rudras.
Mbh.5.171.7720 SECTION CLXXI Bhishma said, All the five sons of Draupadi, O monarch, are Maharathas.
Mbh.5.197.8819 Thou hast for thy allies Sikhandin, and Yuyudhana and Dhristadyumna of Prishata's race; and Bhimasena, and these twins, and Yudhamanyu, and Uttamaujas, and Virata and Drupada who are equal in battle unto Bhishma and Drona; and the mighty-armed Sankha, and Hidimva's son of great might; and this latter's son Anjanparvan endued with great strength and prowess; and Sini's descendant of mighty arms and well-versed in battle, and the mighty Abhimanyu and the five sons of Draupadi!
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.5.199.8852 And the son of Pandu ordered that those mighty bowmen, the five sons of Draupadi and Abhimanyu, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and all the Prabhadrakas, and ten thousand horses, and two thousand elephants, and ten thousand foot-soldiers, and five hundred cars, constituting the first irresistible division of his army, should be placed under the command of Bhimasena.
Mbh.6.19.915 The two sons of Madri, both endued with great effulgence, became the protectors of Bhima's wheels; while the five sons of Draupadi and the son of Subhadra all endued with great activity, protected Bhima from behind.
Mbh.6.25.1073 They are Yuyudhana, and Virata, and that mighty car-warrior Drupada, and Dhrishtaketu, and Chekitana, and the ruler of Kasi endued with great energy; and Purujit, and Kuntibhoja, and Saivya that bull among men; and Yudhamanyu of great prowess, and Uttamaujas of great energy; and Subhadra's son, and the sons of Draupadi, all of whom are mighty car-warriors.
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.6.44.2176 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.6.50.2636 I will follow thee, and Bhima, and Krishna also, O sire, and the sons of Madri united together, and the sons of Draupadi accoutred in mail, and all the other foremost of kings, O bull among men.
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.6.52.2705 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.6.56.2986 And next to him were Satyaki, O king, and the five sons of Draupadi.
Mbh.6.57.3026 And so Bhimasena and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, and Satyaki, and Chekitana, and the sons of Draupadi, O Bharata, supported by all the kings on their side, began to grind thy troops and thy sons stationed in battle, like the gods grinding the Danavas.
Mbh.6.62.3351 of Prishata's race, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Abhimanyu, and the twin sons of Madri and Pandu, these ten opposed those ten warriors of the Dhritarashtra army shooting, O king, diverse kinds of weapons.
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.6.63.3403 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.6.69.3746 And in its back were the sons of Draupadi, and Subhadra's son of great prowess.
Mbh.6.69.3760 Thereupon Abhimanyu excited with wrath, and the sons of Draupadi, O sire, pierced with their sharp-pointed shafts all those warriors with upraised weapons.
Mbh.6.75.3965 And Subhadra's son, and the sons of Draupadi and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, and Satyaki, and king Yudhishthira the just, were stationed in its neck.
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.6.79.4143 The sons of Draupadi, excited with rage, resisted Duryodhana in that battle.
Mbh.6.79.4145 Thy son also, invincible in battle, pierced each of the sons of Draupadi, O monarch, with sharp shafts.
Mbh.6.80.4161 Slaying thee I shall today dispel the sorrows of Kunti as also of Draupadi and the woes that were ours during our exile in the woods.
Mbh.6.80.4182 Then, O king, Dhrishtaketu and Abhimanyu of great energy, and the Kekayas, and the sons of Draupadi, all encountered thy sons.
Mbh.6.88.4635 In the rear were ordered Abhimanyu, and that mighty car-warrior, Virata, and the sons of Draupadi and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha.
Mbh.6.90.4728 And Arjuna, and the sons of Draupadi, and Chekitana of great prowess, proceeded against all the kings under the command of Duryodhana.
Mbh.6.94.4949 Him followed Satyadhriti and Sauchiti difficult of being vanquished in battle, and Srenimat, and Vasudana and the powerful son of the ruler of Kasi, and many car-warriors headed by Abhimanyu, as also those mighty car-warriors, viz, the sons of Draupadi, and the valiant Kshatradeva, and Kshatradharman, and Nila, the ruler of the low countries, at the head of his own forces.
Mbh.6.96.5058 They were Bhimasena, and Abhimanyu and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha; and the sons of Draupadi, and Satyadhriti, and Kshatradeva, O sire, and the rulers of the Chedis, and Vasudana, and the king of the Dasarnas.
Mbh.6.96.5074 Those warriors were the five Kekaya princes, and Abhimanyu, and the five sons of Draupadi and the heroic ruler of the Dasarnas, and Kshatradeva also, O sire, and the ruler of the Chedis, and Chitraketu.
Mbh.6.96.5110 And he struck the five sons of Draupadi with five arrows.
Mbh.6.101.5400 Grinding that army like an elephant grinding lotus-stalks, the mighty Rakshasa then rushed in battle against the sons of Draupadi.
Mbh.6.101.5401 Then those great bowmen, accomplished in fighting, viz, the sons of Draupadi, rushed towards the Rakshasa in battle like five planets rushing against the Sun.
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.6.109.5913 And in his rear were the sons of Draupadi and the valiant Abhimanyu.
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.6.119.6538 And Abhimanyu, and the five sons of Draupadi also, with mighty weapons upraised, rushed against Bhishma in battle.
Mbh.7.8.264 And the Kekaya princes, and Bhimasena, and Subhadra's son and Ghatotkacha and Yudhishthira, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the ruler of the Matsyas, and the son of Drupada, and the five sons of Draupadi, all filled with joy, and Dhrishtaketu, and Satyaki, and the wrathful Chitrasena, and the mighty car-warrior, Yuyutsu, and many other kings, O monarch, who followed the sons of Pandu, all achieved diverse feats in keeping with their lineage and prowess.
Mbh.7.10.383 What heroes surrounded those tigers among men, viz, the sons of Draupadi, when they rushed in battle against Drona like rivers rushing towards the sea?
Mbh.7.14.656 Then Virata and Drupada, and Dhristaketu, and Yudhishthira, and Satyaki, and Kekaya, and Bhima, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Sikhandin, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the five sons of Draupadi, all exclaimed, Excellent!
Mbh.7.16.710 Thereupon, the other sons of Draupadi, desirous of rescuing that brother of theirs, rushed at him.
Mbh.7.16.713 And those, O monarch, quickly covered those mighty car-warriors, viz, the sons of Draupadi, with diverse kinds of arrows like clouds pouring rain on mountain breasts.
Mbh.7.16.730 And piercing Sikhandin with twelve arrows, and Uttamaujas with twenty, and Nakula with five, and Sahadeva with seven, and Yudhishthira with twelve, and each of the five sons of Draupadi with three, and Satyaki with five, and the ruler of Matsyas with ten arrows, and agitating the entire host in that battle, he rushed against one after another of the foremost warriors of the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.23.1171 The standards of the five sons of Draupadi bore on them the excellent images of Dharma, Marut, Sakra, and the twin Aswins.
Mbh.7.23.1179 The five jewels of bows born by the five sons of Draupadi were the Raudra, the Agneya, the Kauverya, the Yamya, and the Girisa.
Mbh.7.23.1198 The eldest son of Draupadi then scattered over Drona's son showers of arrows, like a sower, O bull among men, scattering seeds on the soil at the sowing season
Mbh.7.23.1199 The son of Duhsasana resisted the mighty car-warrior Srutakirti, the son of Arjuna by Draupadi, as the latter was rushing towards Drona.
Mbh.7.24.1298 Upon the fall of the heroic Ruchiparvan, Subhadra's son and the sons of Draupadi, and Chekitana, and Dhrishtaketu, and Yuyutsu began to afflict the elephant.
Mbh.7.24.1306 Arjuna's son then pierced him with a dozen shafts, and Yuyutsu with ten, and each of the sons of Draupadi pierced him with three shafts and Dhrishtaketu also pierced him with three.
Mbh.7.33.1720 and Arjuna's son Abhimanyu, and Kshatradharman, and the valiant Vrihatkshatra, and Dhrishtaketu, the ruler of the Chedis, and the twin sons of Madri, viz, Nakula and Sahadeva, and Ghatotkacha, and the powerful Yudhamanyu and the unvanquished Sikhandin, and the irresistible Uttamaujas and the mighty car-warrior Virata, and the five sons of Draupadi, these all excited with wrath, and the valiant son of Sisupala, and the Kaikeyas of mighty energy, and the Srinjayas by thousands, these and others, accomplished in weapons and difficult of being resisted in battle, suddenly rushed, at the head of their respective followers, against Bharadwaja's son, from a desire of battle.
Mbh.7.38.1929 Beholding this, the Pandavas, the five sons of Draupadi, Virata, the Panchalas, and the Kekayas, uttered leonine shouts.
Mbh.7.38.1932 Seeing that implacable and proud foe of theirs thus vanquished, those mighty car-warriors, viz, the five sons of Draupadi, who had on their banners the images of Yama and Maruta and Sakra and the twin Aswins, and Satyaki, and Chekitana, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Sikhandin, and the Kekayas, and Dhrishtaketu, and the Matsyas, Panchalas, and the Srinjayas, and the Pandavas headed by Yudhishthira, were filled with joy.
Mbh.7.40.1990 Sanjaya said, On the occasion of his insult to Draupadi, Jayadratha was vanquished by Bhimasena.
Mbh.7.41.2017 Piercing then the Kaikeyas with five and twenty arrows, Jayadratha pierced each of the five sons of Draupadi with three arrows.
Mbh.7.70.3022 What warrior, deprived on his senses by Death ventured to slay that dear son of Subhadra, that favourite of Draupadi and Kesava, that child ever loved by Kunti?
Mbh.7.70.3052 What also will Draupadi say unto me?
Mbh.7.76.3331 And while cheerless Subhadra, afflicted with grief, was indulging in such lamentations, the princess of Panchala Draupadi, accompanied by Virata's daughter Uttara, came to her.
Mbh.7.76.3340 Having consoled his sister and Draupadi and Uttara thus, that chastiser of foes, viz, the mighty-armed Krishna, returned to Partha's side.
Mbh.7.81.3577 Commanded by the king, the man introduced that concourse of heroes, consisting of Virata and Bhimasena and Dhrishtadyumna and Satyaki, and Dhrishtaketu, the ruler of the Chedis, and the mighty car-warriors, Drupada, and Sikhandin, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and Chekitana, and the ruler of the Kalikayas, and Yuyutsu, of Kuru's race, and Uttamaujas of the Panchalas, and Yudhamanyu, and Suvahu, and the five sons of Draupadi.
Mbh.7.83.3694 There where Vrikodara and Arjuna are, and the Vrishni hero, Satyaki, and Uttamaujas of the Panchalas, and the invincible Yudhamanyu, and the irrepressible Dhrishtadyumna, and the unvanquished Sikhandin, the Asmakas, the Kekayas, and Kshatradharman of the Somakas, the ruler of the Chedis, and Chekitana, and Vibhu, the son of the ruler of the Kasi, the sons of Draupadi, and Virata and the mighty car-warrior Drupada, and those tigers among men viz, the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the stayer of Madhu to offer counsel, who is there in this world that would fight these, expecting to live?
Mbh.7.92.4252 King Valhika of great energy and noble parentage, with his own troops and counsellors, resisted the sons of Draupadi.
Mbh.7.93.4282 The king of the Valhikas, excited with wrath, fighting, against those five mighty car-warriors, viz, the son of Draupadi, looked resplendent, like the mind contending against the five senses.
Mbh.7.99.4593 Shall I not succeed, O Kesava, in avenging myself of the insult, in the shape of dragging her by the hair, offered unto Draupadi, undeserving as she was of that wrong'
Mbh.7.103.4780 The son of Somadatta resisted the five sons of Draupadi, those tigers among men, those great car-warriors, wrathfully shooting mighty shafts.
Mbh.7.105.4862 SECTION CVII Sanjaya said, The illustrious son of Somadatta pierced each of the sons of Draupadi, those great bowmen, with five arrows, and once more with seven arrows.
Mbh.7.106.4932 Then drawing his terrible bow whose twang resembled the thunder of Indra, he pierced the son of the Wind-god with five and twenty shafts, and Bhimasena's son with five, and Yudhishthira with three, and Sahadeva with seven, and Nakula with three and seventy, and each of the five sons of Draupadi with five shafts, and uttered a loud roar.
Mbh.7.108.5150 Prishata's son, with all his uterine brothers, and all the mighty kings, and the sons of Draupadi, will without doubt, protect me.
Mbh.7.111.5420 And the sons of Draupadi pierced him with three and seventy shafts, Ghatotkacha pierced him with seven.
Mbh.7.119.5810 Thou hadst formerly said unto Draupadi, Thou art our slave, having been won by us at dice.
Mbh.7.119.5819 The woes of Draupadi have thee for their root.
Mbh.7.121.5963 And piercing Dhrishtadyumna with twenty arrows, he struck each of the five sons of Draupadi with three arrows.
Mbh.7.124.6157 Without doubt, the venerable Kunti, and Draupadi, and Subhadra, are all, with their relatives and friends, beholding today exceedingly inauspicious omens.
Mbh.7.150.7867 As, again, an assemblage of lotuses becomes shorn of its beauty when the water over which it grows is dried up by the sun and the wind, even so became the Pandava host being dried up by thy son, O Bharata, the Panchalas, with Bhimasena then with ten shafts, and each of the sons of Madri with three, and Virata and Drupada each with six, and Sikhandin with a hundred, and Dhrishtadyumna with seventy, and Yudhishthira with seven, and the Kaikeyas and the Chedis with innumerable keen shafts, and Satwata with five, and each of the five sons of Draupadi with three, and Ghatotkacha also with a few, he uttered a leonine shout.
Mbh.7.151.7897 And the sons of Draupadi, and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, accompanied by their forces, proceeded against Drona of great splendour.
Mbh.7.153.8034 And the mighty-armed hero pierced each of the five sons of Draupadi with five arrows.
Mbh.7.155.8338 Dhrishtadyumna, and Sikhandin and Janamejaya, the son of Durmuksha and Chandrasen, and Madrasen, and Kritavarman, Dhruva, and Dhara and Vasuchandra, and Sutejana, the sons of Drupada, and Drupada himself, conversant with high and mighty weapons, and the king of the Matsyas also, with his younger brothers, all resolutely struggling for their sake, and Gajanika, and Virabhadra, and Sudarsana, and Srutadhwaja, and Valanika, and Jayanika, and Jayaprya, and Vijaya and Labhalaksha, and Jayaswa, and Kamaratha, and the handsome brothers of Virata, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the five sons of Draupadi, and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, are all fighting for the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.156.8478 This may be due also to thy affection for Yudhishthira or Draupadi.
Mbh.7.175.9537 Meanwhile, let Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandin, and Yudhamanyu and Uttamaujas, these mighty car-warriors, uniting with the son of Draupadi, proceed against Karna.
Mbh.7.182.9938 Let Nakula and Sahadeva and the sons of Draupadi and the Prabhadrakas, and Drupada and Virata with their sons and brothers, and Satyaki and the Kaikeyas and the Pandavas and Dhananjaya, rush with speed against Bharadwaja's son, from desire of slaying him.
Mbh.7.195.10824 Dragging the wife Draupadi to the assembly, thy foes insulted her.
Mbh.7.195.10876 I forgive all the faults of thy speech, O Arjuna, for the sake of Draupadi and Draupadi's children and not for any other reason.
Mbh.7.196.10947 O Satyaki, Draupadi also was persecuted by them unrighteously.
Mbh.8.1.10 Formerly they had brought Draupadi, plunged into woe on account of the match at dice, into the assembly.
Mbh.8.12.471 They consisted of Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandi and the five sons of Draupadi and the Prabhadrakas, and Satyaki and Chekitana with the Dravida forces, and the Pandyas, the Cholas, and the Keralas, surrounded by a mighty array, all possessed of broad chests, long arms, tall statures, and large eyes.
Mbh.8.21.900 Then the chief of the Pancalas, and the sons of Draupadi, O sire, and the twins, and Yuyudhana, uniting together, proceeded against Karna.
Mbh.8.22.922 Then Nakula and Sahadeva, and the sons of Draupadi, and the Prabhadrakas, and Satyaki, and Shikhandi, and Chekitana endued with great energy, all those heroes, drenched those elephants from every side with their weapons, like the clouds drenching the hills with their showers.
Mbh.8.22.942 Then the Pancala prince, and the grandson of Sini Satyaki and the sons of Draupadi and the Prabhadrakas, and Shikhandi, drenched those huge elephants with showers of shafts.
Mbh.8.30.1312 Yudhamanyu and Shikhandi and the sons of Draupadi and the Prabhadrakas, and Uttamauja and Yuyutsu and the twins and Dhrishtadyumna, and the divisions of the Cedis and the Karushas and the Matsyas and Kaikeyas, and the mighty Chekitana, and king Yudhishthira of excellent vows, all these, accompanied by cars and steeds and elephants, and foot-soldiers of fierce prowess, encompassed Karna on all sides in that battle, and showered upon him diverse kinds of weapons, addressing him in harsh words and resolved to compass his destruction.
Mbh.8.46.2539 Let the sons of Draupadi with Shikhandi amongst them, proceed against the rest of the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.8.47.2610 The sons of Draupadi, desirous of battle, stood by the side of the son of Prishata.
Mbh.8.48.2650 Then Dhrishtadyumna, Satyaki, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Vrikodara, Janamejaya, and Shikhandi, and many foremost warriors among the Prabhadrakas, and many amongst the Cedis, the Kaikayas, and the Pancalas, the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the Matsyas, all clad in mail, rushed fiercely upon Radha's son, skilled in smiting, from desire of slaying him.
Mbh.8.48.2680 The mighty car-warrior Vrishasena then, riding on another vehicle, pierced the five sons of Draupadi with seventy and Yuyudhana with five, and Bhimasena with four and sixty, and Sahadeva with five, and Nakula with thirty, and Satanika with seven arrows, and Shikhandi with ten, and king Yudhishthira with a hundred.
Mbh.8.48.2685 Then Dhristadyumna pierced Karna with ten arrows, and the sons of Draupadi pierced him with three and seventy, and Yuyudhana with seven.
Mbh.8.49.2739 Satyaki and Chekitana and Yuyutsu and Shikhandi and the sons of Draupadi and the Prabhadrakas, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva and Bhimasena and Shishupala and the Karushas, Matsyas, the Suras, the Kaikayas, the Kasis and the Kosalas, all these brave heroes, endued with great activity, assailed Vasusena.
Mbh.8.49.2775 And the sons of Draupadi, and the Suras, and the twin sons of Madri by Pandu, also followed the king.
Mbh.8.50.2834 While leading a life of concealment in the city of Virata, relying then on the might of his bare arms, for doing what was agreeable to Draupadi, he secretly slew Kichaka with all his relatives.
Mbh.8.55.3093 SECTION Sanjaya said, Meanwhile the son of Drona Ashvatthama, beholding Yudhishthira protected by the grandson of Sini Satyaki and by the heroic sons of Draupadi, cheerfully advanced against the king, scattering many fierce arrows equipped with wings of gold and whetted on stone, and displaying diverse manoeuvres of his car and the great skill he had acquired and his exceeding lightness of hands.
Mbh.8.55.3104 While the Pandava troops were thus being slaughtered, those mighty car-warriors, viz, the sons of Draupadi, and Satyaki, and king Yudhishthira the just, and the Pancala warriors, all uniting together, cast off their fears of death and rushed against the son of Drona.
Mbh.8.56.3203 Beholding Karna thus slaughtering the Pancalas in that dreadful battle, King Yudhishthira the just rushed in wrath towards him; Dhrishtadyumna and the sons of Draupadi also, O sire, and hundreds of warriors, encompassed that slayer of foes viz, the son of Radha.
Mbh.8.59.3412 The son of Radha, too, O monarch, singly resisted the Pancalas and the Pandavas and the five sons of Draupadi and Yudhamanyu and the mighty car-warrior Satyaki, in consequence of which feat he became the cynosure of all eyes.
Mbh.8.61.3559 Satyaki proceeded against Shakuni, and the sons of Draupadi against the other Kauravas.
Mbh.8.66.3832 I was also made steedless and carless by him in the very sight of Yuyudhana, of Dhrishtadyumna, of the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, of the heroic Shikhandi, as also in the very sight of the sons of Draupadi, and all the Pancalas!
Mbh.8.73.4457 Know, O Partha, that is prevailing over the Pancalas, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandi, and the sons of Dhrishtadyumna, and Satanika, the son of Nakula, and Nakula himself, and Sahadeva, and Durmukha, and Janamejaya, and Sudharman, and Satyaki!
Mbh.8.78.4735 Indeed, Shikhandi, and Bhima, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Satyaki, surrounded the son of Radha, pouring showers of arrows upon him, from desire of despatching him to the other world.
Mbh.8.78.4737 Shikhandi struck him with five and twenty shafts, and Dhrishtadyumna struck him with seven, and the sons of Draupadi with four and sixty, and Sahadeva with seven, and Nakula with a hundred, in that battle.
Mbh.8.78.4744 Within the twinkling of an eye he then deprived the five sons of Draupadi of their cars, O bull of Bharata's race, which seemed exceedingly wonderful.
Mbh.8.78.4780 Similarly the Pandava heroes, Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandi and the five sons of Draupadi, filled with rage, slaughtered thy host.
Mbh.8.79.4811 Learning that king Yudhishthira the just hath been exceedingly mangled and made carless by thee, and seeing the plight of Shikhandi, and Satyaki, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Yudhamanyu, and Uttamauja, and the brothers, Nakula and Sahadeva, that scorcher of foes, Partha, advanceth impetuously on a single car against thee.
Mbh.8.82.5028 The five sons of Draupadi then, with other well-equipped cars, rescued those maternal uncles of theirs that were sinking in the Karna ocean, like persons rescuing from the depths of the ocean ship-wrecked merchants in the sea by means of other vessels.
Mbh.8.85.5154 SECTION Sanjaya said, Learning that Nakula had been deprived of his car, afflicted with arrows and mangled with the weapons of Karna's son, and that he had his shafts, bow, and sword cut off, these eleven formidable resisters of all foes, the five heroic sons of Drupada, the grandson of Sini forming the sixth, and the five sons of Draupadi quickly proceeded on their loud-sounding cars drawn by bounding steeds, with banners waving in the air, and guided by accomplished drivers.
Mbh.8.91.5780 Thyself and Suyodhana and Duhshasana and Shakuni, the son of Subala, had caused Draupadi, clad in a single piece of raiment, to be brought into the midst of the assembly.
Mbh.8.91.5791 Thyself addressing the princess Draupadi, that lady whose tread is as dignified as that of the elephant, in these words, viz, The Pandavas, O Krishna, are lost.
Mbh.8.93.5952 Chekitana and Shikhandi and the five sons of Draupadi, O sire, having slaughtered thy vast army, blew their conchs.
Mbh.9.1.41 The sons have all been slain as also the five sons of Draupadi, O Bharata.
Mbh.9.2.87 Bhagadatta and Kripa and Shalya and the two princes of Avanti and Jayadratha and Bhurishrava and Sala and Somadatta and Bahlika and Ashvatthama and the chief of the Bhojas and the mighty prince of Magadha and Vrihadvala and the ruler of the Kasi and Shakuni the son of Subala and many thousands of Mlecchas and Sakas and Yavanas, and Sudakshina the ruler of the Kambojas and the king of the Trigartas and the grandsire Bhishma and Bharadwaja's son and Gotama's son Kripa and Srutayush and Ayutayush and Satayush of great energy, and Jalasandha and Rishyasringa's son and the Rakshasa Alayudha, and the mighty-armed Alambusa and the great car-warrior Subala, these and numerous other kings, O best of monarchs, have taken up arms for my sake, prepared to cast away their very lives in great battle, stationed on the field amidst these, and surrounded by my brothers, I will fight against all the Parthas and the Pancalas and the Cedis, O tiger among kings, and the sons of Draupadi and Satyaki and Kunti-Bhoja and the rakshasa Ghatotkaca.
Mbh.9.2.142 Tell me how all the Pancalas with their followers, and Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandi and the five sons of Draupadi, fell.
Mbh.9.3.193 Chekitana and the five sons of Draupadi, O sire, having slain a large number of thy troops, blew their conchs.
Mbh.9.5.316 Those scorchers of foes, the Pandavas, who still remember the naked Draupadi plunged into distress, can never be dissuaded from battle.
Mbh.9.5.318 Abandoning honour and pride, the uterine sister of Vasudeva Subhadra is always serving Draupadi as veritable waiting woman.
Mbh.9.7.421 Today let all the sons of Pandu, and Vasudeva, and Satyaki, and the sons of Draupadi, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Shikhandi, and all the Prabhadrakas, behold my prowess and the great might of my bow, and my quickness, and the energy of my weapons, and the strength of my arms, in battle.
Mbh.9.10.614 Seeing Nakula carless, the mighty car-warrior Sutasoma, the son of Draupadi, rushed to that spot for rescuing his sire in battle.
Mbh.9.11.660 Possessed of great strength, he pierced Bhimasena, and the five sons of Draupadi and Dhristadyumna, the two sons of Madri by Pandu, and the grandson of Sini, and Shikhandi also, each with ten arrows equipped with wings of gold and whetted on stone.
Mbh.9.11.673 The five sons of Draupadi poured upon that foe-slaying hero, the impetuous Artayani Shalya, showers of arrows like a mass of clouds pouring rain upon a mountain.
Mbh.9.11.678 Shakuni proceeded against the sons of Draupadi, and Ashvatthama against the twins.
Mbh.9.11.686 The preceptor's son Ashvatthama, without much wrath and as if smiling in that battle, pierced each of the five heroic sons of Draupadi with ten arrows.
Mbh.9.11.693 Resembling the very bludgeon of Yama, impending upon the head of the foe like kala-ratri Death Night, exceedingly destructive of the lives of elephants and steeds and human beings, twined round with cloth of gold, looking like a blazing meteor, equipped with a sling, fierce as a she-snake, hard as thunder, and made wholly of iron, smeared with sandal-paste and other unguents like a desirable lady, smutted with marrow and fat and blood, resembling the very tongue of Yama, producing shrill sounds in consequence of the bells attached to it, like unto the thunder of Indra, resembling in shape a snake of virulent poison just freed from its slough, drenched with the juicy secretions of elephants, inspiring hostile troops with terror and friendly troops with joy, celebrated in the world of men, and capable of riving mountain summits, that mace, with which the mighty son of Kunti had in Kailasa challenged the enraged Lord of Alaka, the friend of Maheshvara, that weapon with which Bhima, though resisted by many, had in wrath slain a large number of proud Guhyakas endued with powers of illusion on the breasts of Gandhamadana for the sake of procuring Mandara flowers for doing what was agreeable to Draupadi, uplifting that mace which was rich with diamonds and jewels and gems and possessed of eight sides and celebrated as Indra's thunder, the mighty-armed son of Pandu now rushed against Shalya.
Mbh.9.16.910 The five sons of Draupadi checked numerous kings of the Kuru army.
Mbh.9.17.1032 Beholding Shalya rushing impetuously towards the king, even like the Destroyer himself rushing in rage, Dhristadyumna and Shikhandi and the five sons of Draupadi and the grandson of Sini suddenly advanced towards him.
Mbh.9.18.1118 Then Arjuna, and Bhima, and the two sons of Madri by Pandu, and that tiger among men, Satyaki, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Shikhandi, and the Pancalas and the Somakas, desirous of rescuing Yudhishthira, surrounded him on all sides.
Mbh.9.18.1125 Where are Dhrishtadyumna and the grandson of Sini and those great car-warriors, the five sons of Draupadi
Mbh.9.18.1126 At this, those mighty warriors, the sons of Draupadi, began to slaughter the followers of the Madra king who were uttering those words and battling vigorously.
Mbh.9.19.1188 Why will not victory be theirs that have Dhananjaya for their warrior, as also Satyaki, and Bhimasena, and Dhrishtadyumna the son of Prishata, and the five sons of Draupadi, and the two sons of Madri, and the mighty bowman Shikhandi, and king Yudhishthira?
Mbh.9.21.1313 Fearlessly that invincible warrior, filled with rage, assailed with keen arrows all the Pandus, and Dhrishtadyumna the son of Prishta, and Shikhandi, and the sons of Draupadi, and the large bands of the Pancalas, and the Kaikeyas, O sire, and the Somakas!
Mbh.9.21.1328 And he pierced Nakula with four and sixty, and Dhrishtadyumna with five, and the sons of Draupadi with seven, and Satyaki with three arrows.
Mbh.9.21.1332 Satyaki struck the king with a single straight shaft; the sons of Draupadi struck him with three and seventy and king Yudhishthira struck him with five.
Mbh.9.21.1360 The heroic Gautama, excited with rage in that battle, pierced the mighty sons of Draupadi with many straight shafts.
Mbh.9.21.1363 The five sons of Draupadi afflicted Kripa like the five senses afflicting a foolish man.
Mbh.9.21.1422 Aided by the son of Draupadi, proceed towards him and slay Shakuni, the son of Subala!
Mbh.9.21.1426 At this, elephants ridden by combatants armed with the bow, and horses, and the valiant Sahadeva, and foot-soldiers, and the sons of Draupadi all rushed against Shakuni difficult of defeat in battle.
Mbh.9.21.1453 Then the sons of Draupadi and those infuriate elephants proceeded to the place where the Pancala prince Dhrishtadyumna, that great car-warrior, was.
Mbh.9.28.2015 Arjuna, and Bhimasena, and the two sons of Madri by Pandu, and the Pancala prince Dhrishtadyumna, and the unvanquished Shikhandi, and Uttamaujas, and Yudhamanyu, and the mighty car-warrior Satyaki, and the five sons of Draupadi, and those amongst the Pancalas, O king, that were yet alive, and all the Pandavas, and all their elephants, and foot-soldiers by hundreds upon hundreds, all proceeded with Yudhishthira.
Mbh.9.29.2146 We were also wronged by thee, O king, by the deprivation of our kingdom, by the cruel words spoken by thee, and by thy maltreatment of Draupadi!
Mbh.9.31.2305 Recollect how Draupadi, while in her season, was maltreated in the midst of the assembly and how king Yudhishthira was defeated at dice through Shakuni's suggestion!
Mbh.9.31.2314 These and many other bulls among Kshatriyas, as also the Pratikamin, that wretch who had seized the tresses of Draupadi, have been slain!
Mbh.9.32.2351 Similarly, the two sons of Madri and the five sons of Draupadi saluted Rohini's son of great strength and stood at a respectful distance.
Mbh.9.54.3897 Remember Draupadi who was ill-treated, while in her season, in the midst of the assembly!
Mbh.9.57.4105 Having struck Duryodhana down, the valiant Bhimasena, approaching the Kuru chief, addressed him, saying, O wretch, formerly laughing at the disrobed Draupadi in the midst of the assembly, thou hadst, O fool, addressed us as Cow, Cow'
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.9.60.4331 The great bowman Yuyutsu followed them, as also Satyaki, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Shikhandi, and the five sons of Draupadi.
Mbh.10.8.509 Of terrible form, he careered in the camp like Yama himself, and at last saw the sons of Draupadi and the remnant of the Somakas.
Mbh.10.8.510 Alarmed by the noise, and learning that Dhrishtadyumna had been slain, those mighty car-warriors, the sons of Draupadi, armed with bows, fearlessly poured their shafts on Drona's son.
Mbh.10.8.515 Taking up his bright shield with a moons and his massive and celestial sword decked with gold, the mighty Ashvatthama rushed against the sons of Draupadi and began to lay about him with his weapon.
Mbh.10.8.657 In great joy the latter uttered these words: All the Pancalas have been slain, as also all the sons of Draupadi!
Mbh.10.9.661 SECTION Sanjaya said, Having slain all the Pancalas and the sons of Draupadi, the three Kuru heroes together came to that spot where Duryodhana lay, struck down by the foe.
Mbh.10.9.725 All the sons of Draupadi have been slain, as also all the children of Dhrishtadyumna!
Mbh.10.10.750 The driver said, The sons of Draupadi, O king, have been slain, with all the children of Drupada himself, while they were heedless and trustfully asleep in their own camp!
Mbh.10.10.792 Having in deep affliction indulged in these lamentations, that king of Kuru's race then addressed Nakula, saying, Go and bring the unfortunate princess Draupadi here along with all her maternal relations'
Mbh.10.10.793 Obediently accepting that command of the king who equalled Yama himself in righteousness, Nakula speedily proceeded on his car to the quarters of Draupadi where that princess resided with all the wives of the Pancala king.
Mbh.10.11.819 Draupadi answered, I have heard that Drona's son hath a gem on his head, born with him.
Mbh.10.16.1006 The Pandavas who had killed and chastised all their foes, placed Govinda and the island-born Krishna and the great ascetic Narada at their head, and taking the gem that was born with Ashvatthama, quickly came back to the intelligent Draupadi who was sitting in observance of the praya vow.
Mbh.10.16.1025 Draupadi said, I desired to only pay off our debt for the injury we have sustained.
Mbh.10.16.1028 The king then, taking that gem, placed it on his head, at the desire of Draupadi and regarding it as a gift from the preceptor.
Mbh.10.16.1030 Though stricken with grief on account of the death of her sons, the princess Draupadi, possessed of great mental strength, gave up her vow.
Mbh.11.11.473 Indeed, all the sons of Drupada, as also all the sons of Draupadi, have been slaughtered.
Mbh.11.12.493 The princess Draupadi also, burning with grief, and accompanied by those Pancala ladies that were with her, sorrowfully followed her lord.
Mbh.11.12.497 What need hast thou of sovereignty, after having seen thy sires and brothers, O Bharata, and the irresistible Abhimanyu and the sons of Draupadi, thus slaughtered?
Mbh.11.15.598 In the midst of the assembly he had shown his left thigh unto Draupadi.
Mbh.11.15.620 When after the match at dice the tresses of Draupadi were seized, I uttered certain words in rage.
Mbh.11.15.644 She then repeatedly embraced and patted each of her sons, and afflicted with grief wept with Draupadi who had lost all her children and whom she saw lying on the bare earth, indulging in piteous lamentations.
Mbh.11.15.645 Draupadi said, O venerable dame, where have all your grandsons, with Abhimanyu among them, gone?
Mbh.11.18.791 Behold that other son of mine, O Madhava, slain by Bhima with his mace, impelled by Draupadi and the recollection of his woes at the time of the match at dice.
Mbh.11.22.901 At that time, O Janardana, when Jayadratha, assisted by the Kekayas, endeavoured to ravish Draupadi, he deserved to be slain by the Pandavas!
Mbh.11.26.1090 They properly burned upon those fires that blazed forth with libations of clarified butter in torrents over them, the bodies of Duryodhana and his hundred brothers, of Shalya, and king Bhurishrava; of king Jayadratha and Abhimanyu, O Bharata; of Duhshasanas son and Lakshmana and king Dhrishtaketu; of Vrihanta and Somadatta and the hundreds of Srinjayas; of king Kshemadhanva and Virata and Drupada; of Shikhandi the prince of Pancalas, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishatas race; of the valiant Yudhamanyu and Uttamauja; of the ruler of the Kosalas, the sons of Draupadi, and Shakuni the son of Subala; of Acala and Vrishaka, and king Bhagadatta; of Karna and his son of great wrath; of those great bowmen, the Kekaya princes, and those mighty car-warriors, the Trigartas; of Ghatotkaca the prince of rakshasas, and the brother of Vaka, of Alambusha, the foremost of rakshasas, and king Jalasandha; and of hundreds and thousands of other kings.
Mbh.11.27.1116 The grief I feel at Karnas death is a hundred times greater than that which was caused by the death of Abhimanyu and the sons of Draupadi, and the destruction of the Pancalas and the Kurus.
Mbh.12.1.21 Having caused the death of the dear son of Subhadra, and of the sons of Draupadi, this victory, O holy one, appears to me in the light of a defeat.
Mbh.12.1.24 This Draupadi, again, who is ever engaged in doing what is agreeable to us, bereaved of sons and kinsmen, is paining me exceedingly.
Mbh.12.14.539 SECTION XIV Vaisampayana said, When Kunti's son, king Yudhishthira the just, remained speechless after listening to his brothers who were telling these truths of the Vedas, that foremost of women, viz, Draupadi, of large eyes and great beauty, and noble descent, O monarch, said these words unto that bull among kings seated in the midst of his brothers that resembled so many lions and tigers, and like the leader in the midst of a herd of elephants.
Mbh.12.14.542 Draupadi said, These thy brothers, O Partha, are crying and drying their palates like chatakas but thou dost not gladden them.
Mbh.12.16.724 Why hast thou forgotten the kick received by the princess Draupadi from Kichaka white we were living in concealment?
Mbh.12.27.1205 SECTION XXVII Yudhishthira said, In consequence of the fall Abhimanyu of tender years, of the sons of Draupadi, of Dhrishtadyumna, of Virata, of king Drupada, of Vasusena conversant with every duty, of the royal Dhrishtaketu, and of diverse other kings hailing from diverse regions, in battle, grief does not forsake my wretched self that am a slayer of kinsmen.
Mbh.12.27.1227 I grieve also few Draupadi who is bereft of her five sons like the Earth bereft of her five mountains.
Mbh.12.37.1998 For the sake of doing what is agreeable to these high-souled Brahmanas, in obedience also to the command of thy revered senior Vyasa of immeasurable energy, and at the request of out-selves that are thy well-wishers, and of Draupadi, O scorcher of foes, do what is agreeable to us, O slayer of foes, and what is beneficial to the world'
Mbh.12.42.2146 Yudhishthira accompanied by Draupadi, gave much wealth for the sake of Drona and the high-souled Karna, of Dhrishtadyumna and Abhimanyu, of the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, the son of Hidimva, and of Virata, and his other well-wishers that had served him loyally, and of Drupada and the five sons of Draupadi.
Mbh.13.57.5719 At this, all the Pandavas with the famous Draupadi amongst them, applauded the words of Yudhishthira and said, Yes'
Mbh.14.12.359 Nor it is proper, O son of Pritha, and conqueror of thy foes, that thou shouldst recall the incident of Kichaka's kicking Draupadi, during the period of thy exile passed in absolute concealment, nor the incidents of the fight which took place between thyself and Drona and Bhishma.
Mbh.14.14.392 And O monarch, that lord of men exhorted by the worshipful Viswarasraba himself, and by Dwaipayana Vyasa, Krishna Devasthana, Narada, Bhima, Nakula, Krishna Draupadi, Sahadeva, and the sharpwitted Vijaya, as well as by other great men, and Brahmanas versed in the Sastras, became relieved of all mental affliction and sorrow arising from the death of his dear relations.
Mbh.14.61.2824 When she met Draupadi, she asked her in grief, O reverend lady, where are all our sons?
Mbh.14.66.2967 Indeed, that hero came for seeing Draupadi and Uttara and Pirtha and for comforting those Kshatriya ladies of distinction who had been bereft of many of their protectors.
Mbh.14.66.2978 Behind her were Draupadi and the famous Subhadra, and the wives of the relatives of the Pandavas, all weeping piteously.
Mbh.14.66.2988 It behoveth thee, O Madhava, to rescue Uttara and Subhadra and Draupadi and myself, and Dharma's son Yudhishthira, and Bhima and Phalguna, and Nakula, and the irresistible Sahadeva.
Mbh.14.67.3015 Behold, O foremost of men, these two standing here, viz, Pritha and Draupadi.
Mbh.14.68.3040 When he of Vrishni's race said so and presented such a cheerful countenance, Draupadi, repairing thither with great speed, addressed the daughter of Virata, saying, O blessed lady, here comes to thee thy father-in-law, the slayer of Madhu, that ancient Rishi of inconceivable soul, that unvanquished one,
Mbh.14.87.3878 The princess Draupadi, however, looked angrily and askance at Krishna, for she could not bear the ascription of any fault to Arjuna.
Mbh.14.88.3904 Draupadi and Subhadra and the other ladies of Kuru's race all made presents to them.
Mbh.14.89.3958 After cutting that horse into pieces, conformably to scriptural directions, they caused Draupadi of great intelligence, who was possessed of the three requisites of mantras, things, and devotion, to sit near the divided animal.
Mbh.14.89.3973 When the king said these words, his brothers and Draupadi also said, Yes, it is even so'
Mbh.15.1.16 Draupadi and Subhadra and the other ladies of the Pandavas behaved towards the old king and the queen as if they were their own father-in-law and mother-in-law.
Mbh.15.1.31 Kunti, and Draupadi, and she of the Sattwata race, possessed of great fame, and Ulupi, the daughter of the snake chief, and queen Chitrangada, and the sister of Dhrishtaketu, and the daughter of Jarasandha, these and many other ladies, O chief of men, used to wait upon the daughter of Suvala like maids of all work.
Mbh.15.3.87 King Yudhishthira the son of Kunti, however, knew it not; nor Arjuna of white steeds, nor Kunti; nor Draupadi possessed of great fame; nor the twin sons of Madri, conversant with every duty and who were always engaged in acting after the wishes of Dhritarashtra.
Mbh.15.3.121 They whom inflicted great wrongs on Draupadi and robbed thee of thy affluence, those cruel wights, have all left the world, slain in battle agreeably to the practice of their order.
Mbh.15.11.558 How hast thou been able to forget that anxiety of twelve long years, and our residence in deep incognito that was so painful to Draupadi?
Mbh.15.16.667 O mower of foes, thou shouldst always do what is agreeable to Draupadi.
Mbh.15.16.694 Then Draupadi with a cheerless face, accompanied by Subhadra, followed her weeping mother-in-law who was journeying on from desire of going into the woods.
Mbh.15.21.867 Indeed, thinking of the slaughter of the youthful Abhimanyu on the field of battle, of the mighty-armed Karna who never retreated from the fray, of the sons of Draupadi, and of other friends of theirs, those heroes became exceedingly cheerless.
Mbh.15.21.869 Draupadi had lost all her children, and the beautiful Subhadra also had become childless.
Mbh.15.22.889 Hearing these words of Sahadeva, queen Draupadi, that foremost of all women duly honouring the king said, with proper salutations, Alas, when shall I see queen Pritha, if, indeed, she be yet alive.
Mbh.15.22.894 Thus addressed by queen Draupadi, the king, O chief of Bharata's race, summoned all the leaders of his forces to his presence and told them, Cause my army, teeming with cars and elephants, to march out.
Mbh.15.23.921 The ladies of the royal household, headed by Draupadi, proceeded in closed litters protected by the superintendents of women.
Mbh.15.25.954 They said, We wish to know who amongst these is Yudhishthira, who are Bhima and Arjuna, who the twins, and who is Draupadi of great fame'
Mbh.15.25.956 naming each, and Draupadi too as also the other ladies of the Kuru household'
Mbh.15.29.1146 Gandhari and Kunti and Draupadi, and she of the Sattwata race, and other ladies of the royal household also sat down.
Mbh.15.29.1149 The sorrow that always exists in the heart of Gandhari, that which exists in the heart of Kunti, and that also which is cherished by Draupadi in her heart, and that burning grief, on account of the death of her son, which Krishna's sister Subhadra also cherishes, are all known to me.
Mbh.15.31.1255 Draupadi shall behold her five sons, her sires, and her brothers also.
Mbh.15.31.1277 Dhrishtadyumna who sprung with Draupadi from the sacrificial fire, was an auspicious portion of the deity of fire.
Mbh.15.32.1299 There were the sons of Draupadi and the son of Subhadra, and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha.
Mbh.15.33.1321 The Pandavas, full of joy, met with the mighty bowman Karna as also with the son of Subhadra, and the children of Draupadi.
Mbh.15.36.1523 Then all the ladies of the Kaurava household, headed by Draupadi, worshipped their father-in-law according to the rites laid down in the scriptures, and took his leave.
Mbh.16.3.108 Then rising up in a rage, Satyaki said, I swear to thee by Truth that I shall soon cause this one to follow in the wake of the five sons of Draupadi, and of Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandithey that were slain by this sinful wretch, while they were asleep, with the assistance of Dronas son.
Mbh.17.1.34 Bhima and Arjuna and the twins, and Draupadi also of great fame, similarly clad themselves in bark of trees, O king.
Mbh.17.1.37 They seemed to look as they had looked in days before, when with Draupadi forming the sixth in number they set out from the capital after their defeat at dice.
Mbh.17.1.40 The five brothers, with Draupadi forming the sixth, and a dog forming the seventh, set out on their journey.
Mbh.17.1.48 Meanwhile the high-souled Pandavas, O thou of Kurus race, and Draupadi of great fame, having observed the preliminary fast, set out with their faces towards the east.
Mbh.17.1.51 Behind him was Bhima; next walked Arjuna; after him were the twins in the order of their birth; behind them all, O foremost one of Bharatas race, proceeded Draupadi, that first of women, possessed of great beauty, of dark complexion, and endued with eyes resembling lotus petals.
Mbh.17.3.122 The delicate princess Draupadi deserving of every comfort, O Purandara, should go with us.
Mbh.17.3.188 I wish to go there where that foremost of women, Draupadi, of ample proportions and darkish complexion and endued with great intelligence and righteous of conduct, has gone
Mbh.18.1.14 It was for him that the virtuous princess of Pancala, Draupadi of faultless features, our wife, was dragged into the midst of the assembly before all our seniors.
Mbh.18.1.28 It behoveth thee not to remember the afflictions of Draupadi.
Mbh.18.1.36 I desire to see, O Narada, Virata and Drupada and the other great Kshatriyas headed by Dhrishtaketu, as also Shikhandi, the Pancala prince, the sons of Draupadi, and Abhimanyu, irresistible in battle.
Mbh.18.2.103 I am Draupadi!
Mbh.18.2.104 We are the sons of Draupadi!
Mbh.18.2.107 What are those sinful acts which were committed by those high-souled beings, Karna and the sons of Draupadi, and the slender-waisted princess of Pancala, so that their residence has been assigned in this region of foetid smell and great woe?
Mbh.18.3.145 After the manner of thyself, Bhima and Arjuna, and Draupadi, have all been shown the place of sinners by an act of deception.
Mbh.18.3.175 Assuming the shape of a dog, I examined thee once more, O son, when thy brothers with Draupadi had fallen down.
Mbh.18.4.211 These five highly blessed Gandharvas endued with the effulgence of fire, and possessed of great energy, were, O king, the sons of Draupadi and yourself.
