MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.134.7199 But, O oppressor of all enemies, the Nishada prince, touching Drona's feet with bent head, wended his way into the forest, and there he made a clay-image of Drona, and began to worship it respectfully, as if it was his real preceptor, and practised weapons before it with the most rigid regularity.
Mbh.1.134.7201 And one day, O grinder of foes, the Kuru and the Pandava princes, with Drona's leave, set out in their cars on a hunting excursion.
Mbh.1.134.7228 Two of Drona's pupils became very much accomplished in the use of mace.
Mbh.1.135.7263 At these words of Arjuna, the hair on Drona's body stood on end from delight.
Mbh.1.169.8657 But thy Brahma force is greater in itself than Drona's Brahma force united with Kshatriya might.
Mbh.3.29.1408 And Somadatta and Yuyutshu and Drona's son and our grandsire Vyasa, every one of them speaketh always of peace.
Mbh.3.36.1883 The fear that is in thy heart, arising from Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and Drona's son, and prince Duryodhana, and Dussasana, I will dispell, O slayer of all foes, by means of an act enjoined by the ordinance.
Mbh.3.37.1905 Taking hold of Arjuna's hands, with a smiling face and in gentle accents, that chastiser of foes, the virtuous Yudhishthira, apparently after reflecting for a moment, spake these words in private unto Dhananjaya, O Bharata, the whole science of arms dwelleth in Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and Drona's son.
Mbh.3.247.12243 What will Bhishma and Drona, Kripa, and Drona's son, Vidura and Sanjaya, Vahuka and Somadatta and other revered seniors, what will the principal men of the other orders and men of independent professions, say to me and what shall I say unto them in reply?
Mbh.4.28.1173 SECTION XXVIII Vaisampayana said, Then that grandsire of the Bharatas, Bhishma the son of Sutanu, conversant with the Vedas, acquainted with the proprieties of time and place, and possessing a knowledge of every duty of morality, after the conclusion of Drona's speech, applauded the words of the preceptor and spake unto the Bharatas for their benefit these words consistent with virtue, expressive of his attachment to the virtuous Yudhishthira, rarely spoken by men that are dishonest, and always meeting with the approbation of the honest.
Mbh.4.39.1598 Vaisampayana continued, The son of Dhritarashtra, O chastiser of foes, having said this, Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Drona's son all applauded his manliness
Mbh.4.47.1828 Why are all these of foremost car-warriors, Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Vikarna and Drona's son, now sitting on their cars, panic-stricken?
Mbh.4.47.1838 Everything is in confusion for Drona's having only heard the neigh of Arjuna's steeds.
Mbh.4.47.1847 All this on Drona's part, therefore, is due only to either the desire of doing good to Arjuna or to his wrath and hatred towards us.
Mbh.4.49.1911 Let Drona and Duryodhana and Bhishma and thyself and Drona's son and ourselves, all fight with the son of Pritha.
Mbh.4.51.1952 SECTION LI Bhishma said, Drona's son observeth well, and Kripa, too observeth rightly.
Mbh.4.51.1969 In the Vedantas, in the Puranas, and in old histories, who save Jamadagni, O king, would be Drona's superior?
Mbh.4.55.2127 And Arjuna then shot three and seventy arrows of sharp points at Drona, and ten at Dussaha and eight at Drona's son, and twelve at Dussasana, and three at Kripa, the son of Saradwat.
Mbh.4.55.2147 He is regarded as the first of all Drona's disciples in lightness of hand.
Mbh.4.58.2228 And that mighty car-warrior Partha, possessed of great prowess and filled with joy upon reaching Drona's car on his own, saluted the preceptor.
Mbh.4.58.2249 Then taking up that foremost of bows, the Gandiva, destructive of foes and capable of withstanding the greatest strain, the impetuous son of Pandu cheerfully discharged countless shafts of various kinds adorned with gold, and that powerful warrior also baffled in a moment Drona's arrowy shower by means of those shafts shot from his own bow.
Mbh.4.58.2287 And then all at once hundreds and thousands of straight arrows fell upon Drona's car.
Mbh.4.58.2294 And turning his steeds towards Drona's son, Partha gave Drona an opportunity to leave the field.
Mbh.4.59.2296 SECTION LIX Vaisampayana said, Then, O mighty king, Drona's son rushed to an encounter with Arjuna in battle.
Mbh.4.59.2322 And the mighty-armed Dhananjaya, that conqueror of foes, leaving Drona's son, all on a sudden rushed towards Karna.
Mbh.4.65.2542 And when the Kuru army became insensible, Partha calling to mind the words of Uttara, addressed the son of the Matsya king, saying, O best of men, go thou among the Kurus, so long as they remain insensible, and bring away the white garments of Drona and Kripa, and the yellow and handsome ones of Karna, as also the blue ones of the king and Drona's son.
Mbh.4.65.2563 And having worshipped the aged grandsire, the son of Santanu, as also the preceptor Drona, and having saluted with beautiful arrows Drona's son and Kripa and other venerable ones among the Kurus, the son of Pritha broke into fragments Duryodhana's crown decked with precious gems, with another arrow.
Mbh.4.67.2604 And the women and the maidens of the palace and the other females living in the inner apartments joyfully said unto him, Our kine having been seized by the Kurus, Bhuminjaya incensed at this and from excess of bravery hath issued forth alone with only Vrihannala as his second, for vanquishing the six mighty car-warriors, Bhishma the son of Santanu, and Kripa, and Karna, and Duryodhana, and Drona, and Drona's son who have all come with the Kuru army'
Mbh.4.67.2645 Yudhishthira said, There where Bhishma and Drona and Drona's son and the son of Vikartana and Kripa and king Duryodhana and other royal and mighty car-warriors are assembled or there where Indra himself is surrounded by the Maruts, what other person than Vrihannala can fight, encountering them all!
Mbh.4.69.2697 It was he that repulsed with arrows Kripa and Drona and Drona's son of powerful energy, and the Suta's son and Bhishma.
Mbh.5.55.3040 It was thus that I addressed them, and seeing me afflicted by great anxiety and my senses tortured, Drona and Bhishma and Kripa and Drona's son then addressed me, saying, Fear not, O represser of foes, for if the foe wage hostilities with us, they will not be able to vanquish us when we take the field.
Mbh.5.55.3079 Bhishma, Drona Kripa and Drona's son, Karna and, Bhurisravas, Salya, the king of Pragjyotish, and Jayadratha, the king of the Sindhus, every one of these, O Bharata, is singly capable of slaying the Pandavas.
Mbh.5.55.3082 A hundred times shrouded by immeasurable arrows shot by Bhishma and Drona and Drona's son and Kripa, and deprived of strength, Partha will have to go unto Yama's abode.
Mbh.5.55.3103 Equal unto him are these bowmen, Drona, Drona's son and Kripa.
Mbh.5.55.3110 Those, however, amongst us, that are our chief warriors, are Bhishma, Drona, Kripa, Drona's son, Karna, Somadatta, Vahlika, and Salya, the king of Pragjyotisha, the two kings Vindha and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Jayadratha; and then, O king, thy sons Dussasana, Durmukha, Dussaha, Srutayu; Chitrasena, Purumitra, Vivingsati, Sala, Bhurisravas, and Vikarna.
Mbh.5.57.3190 Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Karna and Drona's son and Salya and Suyodhana, them all I withstand, like the bank resisting the swelling sea'
Mbh.5.57.3199 And when the righteous Yudhishthira the son of Kunti said this, Dhrishtadyumna fearlessly addressed me in these words, Go thou, O Suta, without delay, and say unto all those that have come to fight for Duryodhana, say unto the Kurus of the Pratipa dynasty with the Vahlikas, the son of Saradwata and Karna and Drona, and Drona's son, and Jayadratha, and Dussasana, and Vikarna and king Duryodhana, and Bhishma, Do not suffer yourselves to be slain by Arjuna, who is protected by the celestials.
Mbh.5.60.3282 Endued with energy and well-versed in the use of weapons, those tigers among men, the sons of Pritha, when united with the celestials, will be incapable of being even gazed upon by human warriors, He who hath the irresistible, excellent and celestial Gandiva for his bow, he who hath a couple of celestial quivers obtained from Varuna, large, full of shafts, and inexhaustible, he on whose banner, that is unobstructed like smoke in its action, is stationed the monkey-image of celestial origin, whose car is unequalled on the earth girt by the four seas, and the rattle of which as heard by men is like the roar of the clouds, and which like the rolling of the thunder frightens the foe; he whom the whole world regards as superhuman in energy; he whom all the kings of the earth know to be the vanquisher of the very gods in battle; he that taketh up five hundred arrows at a time and in the twinkling of the eye, shooteth them, unseen by other, to a great distance; that son of Pritha and tiger among car-warriors and chastiser of foes, whom Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Drona's son and Salya, the king of the Madras, and in fact, all impartial persons, regard as incapable of being vanquished by even earthly kings of superhuman prowess, when ready for fight who shooteth at one stretch full five hundred arrows, and who is equal unto Kartavirya in strength of arms; that great bowman, Arjuna, equal unto Indra or Upendra in prowess, I behold that great warrior committing a great havoc in this terrible battle.
Mbh.5.66.3430 O Sanjaya, our grandsire, the son of Santanu, and Dhritarashtra, and Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and king Vahlika, and Drona's son, and Somadatta, and Sakuni the son of Suvala; and Dussasana, and Sala, and Purumitra, and Vivingsati; Vikarna, and Chitrasena, and king Jayatsena, and Vinda and Anuvinda, the two chiefs of Avanti, and Bhurisravas, and king Bhagadatta, and king Jarasandha and other rulers of the earth, assembled there to fight for the good of the Kauravas, are all on the eve of death.
Mbh.5.83.3994 O glorious Krishna, salute her for me, the Kuru king Dhritarashtra also, and all those monarchs who are senior to us in age, and Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and king Vahlika, and Drona's son and Somadatta, and in fact, every one of the Bharata race, and also Vidura endued with great wisdom, that counsellor of the Kurus, of profound intellect and intimate acquaintance with morality, should all, O slayer of Madhu, be embraced by thee'
Mbh.5.92.4334 He hath great faith in Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and Drona's son, and Jayadratha, and, therefore, he never setteth his heart on peace, O Janardana.
Mbh.5.141.6341 The arrows shot by the wielder of Gandiva and by other mighty car-warriors, and by Drona and Drona's son, will play the part of ladles for distributing the Soma.
Mbh.5.156.6932 And placing an Akshauhini of troops under each of those best of men, viz, Kripa, Drona, Salya, Jayadratha, the king of the Sindhus, Sudakshina the ruler of the Kamvojas, Kritavarman, Drona's son Aswatthaman, Karna, Bhurisravas, Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and the mighty Vahlika, the king used to bring them daily before him and at all hours, and speak to them.
Mbh.5.168.7570 The mighty bowman Aswatthaman who is Drona's son surpasseth all bowmen.
Mbh.5.197.8800 Drona's son acquainted with weapons of high efficacy declared the period in his case to be ten nights.
Mbh.5.197.8810 Ganga's son knoweth not that weapon; nor Drona nor Gautama Kripa; nor Drona's son, O king!
Mbh.6.14.720 When Kripa, again, was near him, and Drona's son Aswatthaman also, how could Bhishma, that foremost of smiters be slain?
Mbh.6.17.861 And Srutayudha and Chitrasena and Purumitra and Vivinsati, and Salya and Bhurisravas, and that mighty car-warrior Vikarna, these seven mighty bowmen on their carts and cased in excellent mail, followed Drona's son behind but in advance of Bhishma.
Mbh.6.17.877 And, O king, arrayed by Drona and the royal son of Santanu, and Drona's son, and Valhika, and Kripa, the Kaurava Vyuha consisting of many divisions of cars was such that the elephants formed its body; the kings, its head; and the steeds, its wings.
Mbh.6.45.2244 The powerful Sikhandin, O king, rushed against Drona's son, Aswatthaman, however deeply piercing the angry Sikhandin stationed before him with a keen-edged shaft, caused him to tremble, Sikhandin also, O king, smote Drona's son with a sharp-whetted shaft of excellent temper.
Mbh.6.52.2701 Then, O great king, Bhishma, the grandsire of the Kauravas, struck Arjuna with seventy-seven arrows and Drona struck him with five and twenty, and Kripa with fifty, and Duryodhana with four and sixty, and Salya with nine arrows; and Drona's son, that tiger among men, with sixty, and Vikarna with three arrows; and Saindhava with nine and Sakuni with five.
Mbh.6.52.2714 And Drona's son and Duryodhana, and thy son Vikarna, surrounding Bhishma in that combat, stood, O sire, for battle.
Mbh.6.53.2775 And hurled from his hands, that mace coursed through the air for Drona's destruction.
Mbh.6.55.2926 SECTION LV Sanjaya said, When the forenoon of that day had passed away, O Bharata, and when the destruction of cars, elephants, steeds, foot-soldiers and horse-soldiers, proceeded on, the prince of Panchala engaged himself in battle with these three mighty car-warriors, viz, Drona's son, Salya, and the high-souled Kripa.
Mbh.6.55.2927 And the mighty heir of Panchala's king with many sharp shafts, slew the steeds of Drona's son that were celebrated over all the world.
Mbh.6.55.2928 Deprived then of his animals, Drona's son quickly getting up on Salya's car, showered his shafts on the hair of the Panchala king.
Mbh.6.55.2929 And beholding Dhrishtadyumna engaged in battle with Drona's son, the son of Subhadra, O Bharata, quickly came up scattering his sharp arrows.
Mbh.6.55.2931 Drona's son, however, quickly pierced Arjuna's son with many winged arrows, and Salya pierced him with twelve, and Kripa with three sharp arrows.
Mbh.6.58.3070 I do not regard the Pandavas to be, by any means, a match for thee or for Drona, in battle, or for Drona's son, or for Kripa.
Mbh.6.61.3298 SECTION LXI Sanjaya said, And Drona's son, and Bhurisravas, and Chitrasena, O sire, and the son of Samyamani also, all fought with Subhadra's son.
Mbh.6.61.3308 Thereupon Bhurisravas, and Salya, and Drona's son and Samyamani, and Sala struck with the fear at the strength of arms displayed by Krishna's son could not stay before him.
Mbh.6.65.3531 And what old Bhishma and Drona, and Kripa, and Suvala's son, and Jayadratha, and that mighty bowman, viz, Drona's son and Vikarna of great strength do?
Mbh.6.65.3556 Duryodhana said, Drona and thou, and Salya, and Kripa, and Drona's son, and Kritavarman the son of Hridika, and Sudakshina the ruler of the Kamvojas, and Bhurisravas, and Vikarna, and Bhagadatta of exceeding prowess, are all regarded as mighty car-warriors.
Mbh.6.73.3878 And that terrible bowman and mighty car-warrior of firm hand, viz, Drona's son, pierced with six shafts the wielder of Gandiva between his two breasts.
Mbh.6.73.3880 Deprived of his senses by anger, and unable to bear the cutting off of his bow in that battle, Drona's son, taking up another bow that was tougher, pierced Phalguni, O king, with ninety sharp-shafts, and Vasudeva also with seventy fierce arrows.
Mbh.6.73.3883 And that foremost of mighty men speedily pierced Drona's son, in that battle, with those arrows.
Mbh.6.73.3885 But though thus pierced by the wielder of Gandiva, Drona's son wavered not.
Mbh.6.75.3993 Deeply pierced by Bharadwaja's son in that conflict, Bhima despatched Drona's charioteer to the region of Yama.
Mbh.6.76.4027 It is also protected by Bhagadatta and Vikarna by Drona's son, and Suvala's son, and Valhika and by many other mighty and high-souled heroes of the world.
Mbh.6.83.4324 And then he pierced Drona's standard with one arrow, and his charioteer with five.
Mbh.6.83.4325 And he also pierced Drona's bow with one arrow, and at all this that bull among Brahmanas became highly angry.
Mbh.6.83.4335 Sikhandin also, O king, getting at Drona's son in that battle, struck the latter between his brows with three swiftly coursing shafts.
Mbh.6.87.4604 And Drona, and Drona's son, and Kripa, and Salya, and Kritavarman of the Satwata race, surrounding the whole Dhartarashtra army, proceeded towards their tents.
Mbh.6.88.4624 Next to Drona's son proceeded king Duryodhana with the whole army, surrounded by his uterine brothers.
Mbh.6.95.4996 Kripa and Bhurisravas and Salya, and Drona's son and Vivingsati, and Chitrasena and Vikarna, and the ruler of the Sindhus, and Vrihadvala, and those two mighty bowmen, viz, the two princes of Avanti, surrounded the Kuru king.
Mbh.6.95.5004 Beholding him with mace thus upraised and looking on that account like the crested Kailasa, both the Kuru king and Drona's son rushed towards him.
Mbh.6.95.5009 The heroic ruler of the low country, the dear friend of Bhima, viz, Nila, looking like a mass of blue clouds, rushed at Drona's son, filled with wrath.
Mbh.6.95.5010 A great bowman, Nila always desired an encounter with Drona's son.
Mbh.6.95.5012 Pierced after the same way by Nila with his well-shot arrows winged with feathers, Drona's son, covered with blood and exceedingly pained, was filled with wrath.
Mbh.6.95.5017 Beholding king Nila, who looked like a mass of blue clouds, in a swoon, Ghatotkacha, filled with wrath and surrounded by his kinsmen, rushed impetuously towards Drona's son, that ornament of battle.
Mbh.6.95.5021 Beholding them repulsed from the encounter by means of the shafts shot from the bow of Drona's son, Bhimasena's son Ghatotkacha of gigantic size was filled with rage.
Mbh.6.96.5048 Myself, and Drona, and Kripa, and Drona's son, and Kritavarman of the Satwata race, and Salya, and Somadatta's son, and that mighty car-warrior Vikarna, and thy heroic brothers headed by Dussasana, will all, for thy sake, battle against that mighty Rakshasas.
Mbh.6.102.5463 Thereupon that foremost of car-warriors, viz, Sini's grandson, abandoning Gautama, rushed in battle towards Drona's son like Rahu in the firmament against the Moon.
Mbh.6.102.5464 Drona's son, however, O Bharata, cut Satyaki's bow in twain.
Mbh.6.102.5466 Satyaki then, taking up another bow capable of bearing a great strain and slaughtering the foe, struck Drona's son, O king, in the chest and arms with six shafts.
Mbh.6.102.5470 And with another broad-headed arrow, Drona's son in that battle cut off the excellent standard of Satyaki.
Mbh.6.109.5975 Drona, and Drona's son, and Kripa, and Suyodhana, and Chitrasena, and Vikarna, and Jayadratha the ruler of the Sindhus, Vinda and Anuvinda.
Mbh.6.112.6101 Virata then, O chastiser of foes, struck, with broad-headed shafts, that mighty bowman and ornament of battle, viz, Drona's son, as the latter advanced against them.
Mbh.6.112.6104 Wonderful was the conduct that we then beheld of those two old warriors, inasmuch as they checked all those fierce shafts shot by Drona's son.
Mbh.6.112.6127 Hearing the rattle of Drona's car, O king, that resembled the roar of the clouds, the Prabhadrakas, O sire, began to tremble.
Mbh.6.116.6319 And the grandson of Sini battled with Drona's son, and Dhrishtaketu with the descendant of Puru, and Yudhamanyu with thy son Duryodhana at the head of his followers.
Mbh.6.117.6350 Then that great bowman Of the Satwata race, possessed of great fame, deeply pierced by Drona's son, pierced the latter in return with arrows.
Mbh.6.117.6393 Thereupon that mace, cut into fragments, O king, by those shafts shot from Drona's bow, fell down on the earth.
Mbh.7.7.211 After Drona's installation in the command, the joy of the army expressed itself by the sound of drums and the loud blare of conchs.
Mbh.7.8.283 And among foot-soldiers and cars and steeds and elephants nothing could be seen save Drona's arrows.
Mbh.7.8.287 Shafts in thousands, decked with wings of gold, shot from Drona's bow, piercing through the bodies of the elephants and the young horses of those warriors, entered the earth, their feathers dyed with blood.
Mbh.7.9.308 Without doubt, O Sanjaya, no one dies of grief caused by another's calamity, since, wretch that I am, I am yet alive although I have heard of Drona's death.
Mbh.7.9.310 Surely, my heart, hard as it is, is made of adamant, since it breaketh not into a hundred pieces, although I have heard of Drona's death.
Mbh.7.9.337 Who were they that fought in Drona's van, protecting him, standing by his side?
Mbh.7.9.342 Who were those heroes that went in the last journey in Drona's battle?
Mbh.7.9.343 Did any of those Kshatriyas that were assigned for Drona's protection, proving false, abandon that hero in battle?
Mbh.7.10.388 That mighty bowman, viz, Dhrishtadyumna, who is the chief counsellor of the Pandavas, who is engaged in doing evil to Duryodhana, who was created for Drona's destruction, O, what heroes of my army surrounded him when he came towards Drona, breaking through all my ranks and consuming all my warriors in battle?
Mbh.7.12.497 Thy son Duryodhana knew Drona's partiality for the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.12.499 Then, O chastiser of foes, the fact of Drona's having promised to seize the eldest Pandava was proclaimed by Duryodhana unto all his troops
Mbh.7.14.544 And that river had its source in the impetuosity of Drona's wrath, and it was haunted by crowds of carnivorous creatures.
Mbh.7.16.712 Against them thus smiting the son of Karna, many car-warriors headed by Drona's son Aswatthama rushed.
Mbh.7.16.718 And with Bhima and Karna and Kripa and Drona and Drona's son and Prishata's son and Satyaki, the field of battle looked resplendent like the all-destructive sun that rises at the end of the Yuga.
Mbh.7.16.740 And the warriors there all exclaimed, beholding Drona's prowess, Today the royal son of Dhritarashtra will be crowned with success.
Mbh.7.16.744 And the diadem-decked Arjuna suddenly came upon Drona's divisions, covering it with a thick net-work of arrows and confounding the very sense of those that followed Drona.
Mbh.7.20.899 And Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Sudakshina, the ruler of the Kamvojas, stationed themselves in the left wing at the head, however, of Drona's son Aswatthaman.
Mbh.7.21.963 And Satyajit shot at Drona's charioteer five arrows, fatal as snake-poison and each looking like Death himself.
Mbh.7.21.965 Then Satyajit quickly Pierced Drona's steeds with ten shafts; and filled with rage, he next pierced each of his Parshni drivers with ten shafts.
Mbh.7.22.1049 Sanjaya said, Beholding the Panchalas, the Pandavas, the Matsyas, the Srinjayas, the Chedis, the Kalikeyas, thus routed after being broken in battle by Drona with his shafts, beholding them thus driven from the field by those showers of fleet arrows shot from Drona's, bow, like vessels sent adrift by the awful waves of the tempest-tossed ocean, the Kauravas with many leonine shouts and with the noise of diverse instruments, began to assail the cars and elephants and foot-soldiers of that hostile host from all sides.
Mbh.7.22.1078 Sanjaya continued, Hearing these words of Radheya, king Duryodhana then, accompanied by his brothers, O monarch, proceeded towards Drona's car.
Mbh.7.23.1196 Beholding Prativindhya staying at the van of that dreadful battle, Drona's son Aswatthaman, desirous of protecting the honour of his sire, resisted the former with his shafts.
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.7.23.1234 Indeed, such a battle was never seen or heard of before as that which then took place between those warriors that were bent upon Drona's destruction and protection.
Mbh.7.26.1350 SECTION XXVI Sanjaya said, At Partha's desire, Krishna then urged his white steeds, fleet as the mind and covered in golden armour, towards Drona's divisions.
Mbh.7.29.1525 Deeply and suddenly pierced by Nila, Drona's son with three broad-headed arrows, cut off his antagonist's bow and standard and umbrella.
Mbh.7.29.1527 Drona's son, however, O sinless one, by means of a bearded arrow, cut off, from his antagonist's trunk, his head graced with a beautiful nose and decked with excellent ear-rings, and which rested on elevated shoulders.
Mbh.7.30.1542 Indeed, those great car-warriors of mighty energy, viz, Bhima and others, fell furiously upon Drona's host.
Mbh.7.30.1592 Obeying his behest, the mighty-armed Pandavas, smiting the Katirava army proceeded towards Drona's car like swans towards a lake, Seize him, -'Do not fly away, Do not fear, Cut into pieces, these uproarious cries were heard in the vicinity of Drona's car.
Mbh.7.30.1593 Then Drona and Kripa, and Karna and Drona's son, and king Jayadratha, and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Salya, received those heroes.
Mbh.7.31.1646 SECTION XXXI Abhimanyu-badha Parva Sanjaya said, Having been first broken by Arjuna of immeasurable prowess, and owing also to the failure of Drona's vow, in consequence of Yudhishthira having been well-protected, thy warriors were regarded as defeated.
Mbh.7.31.1648 Retiring from the field with Drona's consent, after having been vanquished by their enemies of sure aim and humiliated by them in battle, they heard, as they proceeded, the countless merits of Phalguni praised by all creatures, and the friendship of Kesava for Arjuna spoken of by all.
Mbh.7.33.1723 And the Pandavas, O king, afflicted by the shafts shot from Drona's bow, were unable to stay before him.
Mbh.7.33.1724 And the strength of Drona's arms that we saw was wonderful in the extreme, inasmuch as the Panchalas and the Srinjayas failed to approach him.
Mbh.7.33.1750 Sanjaya continued, Hearing these words of Yudhishthira, Abhimanyu ordered his charioteer, Sumitra, saying, Quickly urge the steeds towards Drona's army
Mbh.7.34.1751 SECTION XXXIV Sanjaya said, Hearing these words of the intelligent Yudhishthira, the son of Subhadra, O Bharata, urged his charioteer towards Drona's array.
Mbh.7.34.1764 Those coursers, urged by Sumitra towards Drona's army, rushed towards Drona himself, O king, with great speed and prowess.
Mbh.7.35.1813 And Drona, and Drona's son, and Kripa and Karna and Kritavarman and Suvala's son, Vrihadvala, and the ruler of the Madras, and Bhuri, and Bhurisravas, and Sala, and Paurava and Vrishasena, shooting sharp shafts, checked Subhadra's son by means of those arrowy showers.
Mbh.7.35.1837 Then Karna and Kripa, and Drona and Drona's son, and the ruler of the Gandharas, and Sala and Salya, and Bhurisravas and Kratha, and Somadatta, and Vivinsati, and Vrishasena, and Sushena, and Kundavedhin, and Pratardana, and Vrindaraka and Lalithya, and Pravahu, and Drighalochana, and angry Duryodhana, showered their arrows upon him.
Mbh.7.37.1883 Careering with great speed like a circle of fire, he pierced Drona and Karna, and Kripa, and Salya and Drona's son, and Kritavarman of the Bhoja race, and Vrihadvala, and Duryodhana, and Somadatta, and mighty Sakuni, and diverse kings and diverse princes and diverse bodies of troops.
Mbh.7.38.1933 And all of them rushed with speed, desirous of piercing Drona's array.
Mbh.7.44.2097 Beholding them broken and routed, Drona and Drona's son, and Vrihadvala, and Kripa, and Duryodhana, and Karna, and Kritavarman, and Suvala's son Sakuni, rushed in great wrath against the unvanquished son of Subhadra.
Mbh.7.44.2113 Then Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and Drona's son and Vrihadvala, and Kritavarman, the son of Hridika, these six car-warriors, -encompassed Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.45.2124 Then Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and Drona's son, and Vrihadvala and Kritavarman, the son of Hridika, these six car-warriors, encompassed him.
Mbh.7.45.2134 While Abhimanyu was thus engaged in fearlessly slaying one after another the foremost warriors among his enemies, Drona's son Aswatthaman pierced him with five and twenty small arrows.
Mbh.7.45.2136 Drona's son, however, in return, piercing Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.49.2283 Alas, the heroic son of Arjuna, having crossed the vast sea of Drona's army, was ultimately obliged to become a guest of Yama's abode, upon encountering the son of Duhsasana.
Mbh.7.71.3103 Then Drona, Kripa and Karna and Drona's son, and the king of the Kosalas, and Kritavarman, these six car-warriors surrounded the son of Subhadra.
Mbh.7.72.3156 Myself, Vikartana's son, Karna, Chitrasena, Vivinsati, Bhurisravas, Sala, Salya, the invincible Vrishasena, Purumitra, Jaya, Bhoja, Sudakshina the ruler of the Kamvojas, Satyavrata, the mighty-armed, Vikarna, Durmukha, Dussasana, Subahu, the ruler of the Kalingas, with his weapons upraised, Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, Drona, Drona's son, and Suvala's son Sakuni, these and numerous other kings will, with their forces, face the battle surrounding thee on all sides!
Mbh.7.72.3165 Then, O king, having touched Drona's feet with reverence, and taken his seat with humility, he asked the preceptor these words, In hitting the aim, in hitting it from it distance, in tightness of hand, and in the force of the stroke, O illustrious one, tell the difference between myself and Phalguna!
Mbh.7.73.3220 Karna and Bhurisravas, and Drona's son, and the invincible Vrishasena, and Kripa, and the ruler of the Madras, these six will be in Jayadratha's van.
Mbh.7.85.3782 Beholding Drona's car which was graced with a beautiful standard and had red sacrificial altar and a black deer-skin, the Kauravas were filled with delight.
Mbh.7.88.3885 Then, Arjuna baffling Drona's arrowy showers with his own arrows, rushed against Drona, shooting mightier and More awful shafts.
Mbh.7.88.3887 Cutting the shafts of Arjuna by his own shafts, Drona then pierced both Krishna and Arjuna with many shafts that resembled poison or fire, Then, while Arjuna was thinking of cutting of Drona's bow with his arrows, the latter, endued with great valour, fearlessly and quickly cut off, with shafts the bow-string of the illustrious Phalguna.
Mbh.7.88.3892 All these slew many warriors of Drona's array.
Mbh.7.89.3944 Avoiding those sharp shafts shot from Drona's bow, the diadem-decked son of Kunti, adorned with garlands of flowers, began to slaughter the host of the Bhojas.
Mbh.7.92.4215 And then commenced the battle between them and Drona's troops.
Mbh.7.93.4270 Approaching Bharadwaja's son who was staying at the gate of his array, the Parthas battled vigorously for piercing through Drona's division.
Mbh.7.94.4324 Seizing the shaft of Drona's car, he entered into it.
Mbh.7.98.4519 Thy warriors and thy sons, while Partha and Krishna were in the midst of Drona's division, had thought that those two would never be able to issue out of it.
Mbh.7.98.4520 Beholding, however, those two heroes of great splendour issue out of Drona's division, they no longer, O monarch, hoped for Jayadratha's life.
Mbh.7.98.4535 Indeed, those two chastisers of foes, freed from Drona's division, which resembled the very ocean, seemed to be filled with joy like persons that have safely crossed the vasty deep.
Mbh.7.98.4538 Having forded that wide lake, of which Drona constituted the alligator, darts formed the fierce snakes, shafts, the Makaras, and Kshatriyas, the deep waters, and having issued out of that cloud, constituted by Drona's weapons, whose thunders were the twang of bows and the sound of palms, and whose lightning flashes were constituted by maces and swords, Partha and Krishna looked like the sun and moon freed from darkness.
Mbh.7.101.4716 And piercing the son of Somadatta with three arrows and Salya with ten, he pierced Kripa with five and twenty arrows, and the ruler of the Sindhus with a hundred, Partha struck Drona's son with seventy arrows.
Mbh.7.102.4730 Similarly, the lion-tail standard-top of Drona's son, O Bharata, we saw, was endued with the effulgence of the rising sun Decked with gold, floating in the breeze, possessed of the splendour of the rainbow, the standard mark of Drona's son appeared on high, inspiring the foremost of Kuru warriors with joy.
Mbh.7.103.4770 Indeed, all the Panchalas with the Pandavas, obtaining Drona's car within reach used many mighty weapons, desirous of piercing through his array.
Mbh.7.103.4771 Car-warriors stationed on their cars, causing the earth to shake under them, and showering their arrowy downpours, rushed towards Drona's car, without much speed.
Mbh.7.104.4815 King Vrihatkshatra then, O monarch, desirous of piercing through Drona's division, quickly struck his antagonist with ninety straight shafts.
Mbh.7.109.5168 Darting wrathfully through this force of Drona, like a fish through the sea, I will go thither, O monarch, where king Jayadratha, depending upon his troops, stayeth, in fear of the son of Pandu, protected by those foremost of car-warriors, viz, Drona's son Karna and Kripa!
Mbh.7.110.5283 And with another shaft, O sire, Satyaki struck Drona's standard.
Mbh.7.111.5392 I think, seeing those two heroes pass through Drona's division unvanquished within a moment, my sons are filled with grief.
Mbh.7.112.5472 Having, O monarch, forded the ocean constituted by Drona's division, and filled with joy at having vanquished Kritavarman in battle, that hero then addressed his charioteer, saying, Proceed slowly without fear'
Mbh.7.112.5473 Beholding, however, that army of thine that abounded with cars, steeds, elephants and foot-soldiers, Satyaki once more told his charioteer, That large division which thou seest on left of Drona's host, and which looks dark as the clouds, consists of the elephants of the foe.
Mbh.7.114.5575 Then he of Dasarha's race, acquainted with the highest weapons, cut off all those arrows shot from Drona's bow, with two beautifully winged arrows of his.
Mbh.7.114.5578 Indeed, those mangling arrows, O king, issued from Drona's car, like vigorous snakes in wrath issuing through an ant-hill.
Mbh.7.114.5583 And he struck Drona's standard also with many sharp shafts.
Mbh.7.116.5634 SECTION CXVIII Sanjaya said, Then that bull of Vrishni's race, viz, the high-souled Satyaki of great intelligence, having slain Sudarsana, once more addressed his driver, saying, Having forded through the almost unfordable ocean of Drona's division, teeming with cars and steeds and elephants, whose waves are constituted by arrows and darts, fishes by swords and scimitars and alligators by maces, which roar with the whiz of shafts and the clash of diverse weapons, an ocean that is fierce and destructive of life, and resounds with the noise of diverse musical instruments, whose touch is unpleasant and unbearable to warriors of victory, and whose margin is infested with fierce cannibals represented by the force of Jalasandha,
Mbh.7.117.5695 Indeed, after he had passed through Drona's division, and the unfordable division of the Bhojas, after he had forded through the sea of Jalasandha's troops as also the host of the Kamvojas, after he had escaped the alligator constituted by Hridika's son, after he had traversed those ocean-like host, many car-warriors of thy army, excited with wrath, surrounded Satyaki.
Mbh.7.118.5800 Those troops of thine, while being thus slaughtered by Yuyudhana, in battle, fled away from Yuyudhana's car towards where Drona's division was.
Mbh.7.118.5801 Those other car-warriors also with whom Duhsasana had proceeded, all struck with panic, similarly rushed to the spot where Drona's car was seen.
Mbh.7.119.5848 Piercing Drona with five straight shafts, that prince then pierced Drona's standard with one shaft, and then his charioteer with seven.
Mbh.7.119.5867 Excited with wrath, he rushed, in that encounter, against Drona's car.
Mbh.7.119.5874 That mighty car-warrior then, speedily jumping down from his own car, Mounted that of Bharadwaja, O sire, in no time, his eyes red in wrath and impelled by the desire of cutting Drona's head from off his trunk.
Mbh.7.119.5878 The mighty Dhrishtadyumna, struck with a large number of those arrows, quickly jumped down from Drona's car.
Mbh.7.120.5907 Then all of them turned towards the spot where Drona's car was, like mighty snakes making towards holes from fear of the prince of birds.
Mbh.7.122.5990 Seeing those shafts shot from Drona's bow, swiftly coursing towards him, Vrihatkshatra in that battle resisted them with as many sharp shafts of his.
Mbh.7.122.5998 And with another arrow he greatly afflicted Drona's charioteer in this very vitals.
Mbh.7.122.6046 Many foremost of Kshatriyas, having approached the uncrossable and fierce fire of Drona's weapons, have, O Bharata, been blasted and consumed.
Mbh.7.122.6055 And he pierced Drona's charioteer with four arrows and his four steeds also with four.
Mbh.7.124.6174 Transgressing all those warriors with impetuosity, Bhimasena rushed against Drona's division, and covered the elephant-force before him with showers of arrows.
Mbh.7.125.6239 Indeed, as a bovine bull easily bears a heavy shower of rain, even so that tiger among men, viz, Bhima, bore that arrowy downpour from Drona's bow.
Mbh.7.125.6240 Struck in that battle, o sire, by Drona, the mighty Bhima, seizing Drona's car by the shaft, threw it down with great force.
Mbh.7.134.6667 Bhurisravas, and Kripa, and Drona's son, and the ruler of the Madras, and Uttamaujas and Yudhamanyu, and Kesava, and Arjuna, these great car-warriors: O king, among both the Kurus and the Pandavas, loudly cheered Bhima, saying, Excellent, Excellent' and uttered leonine roars.
Mbh.7.136.6865 Drona's son, however, afflicted with the shafts of Dhananjaya, quickly entered a division of the Kaurava army that abounded with infuriated elephants and teemed with cars.
Mbh.7.137.6873 Dhananjaya, excited with rage, hath penetrated into my host which is protected by Drona's son, and Karna and which, therefore, is incapable of being penetrated by the very gods.
Mbh.7.142.7191 How will Vibhatsu, who seems to have been urged on by Fate, get at the ruler of the Sindhus when the latter if protected by Drona's son, by myself, and Duhsasana?
Mbh.7.142.7195 Do thou therefore, O Karna, with myself and other brave and mighty car-warriors, with Drona's son and the ruler of the Madras and Kripa fight with Partha in battle, exerting thyself with the greatest firmness and resolution'
Mbh.7.142.7228 Baffling with his own weapons those of Drona's son and Kripa, he pierced every one of those warriors with nine shafts.
Mbh.7.142.7229 Then, Drona's son pierced him with five and twenty arrows, and Vrishasena with seven, and Duryodhana pierced him with twenty, and Karma and Salya each with three.
Mbh.7.142.7246 Drona's son, however, with a crescent-shaped arrow, cut off that shaft as it coursed impetuously towards Karna.
Mbh.7.142.7271 Indeed, piercing Drona's son with four and sixty shafts, and the ruler of the Madras with a hundred, and the Sindhu king with ten broad-headed arrows, and Vrishasena with three arrows and Saradwata's son with twenty, Partha uttered a loud shout.
Mbh.7.143.7390 And others concealed themselves behind and under the bodies of slain elephants Routing thy host thus, O king, Dhananjaya began to strike with terrible shafts the protectors of the ruler of the Sindhus with his arrowy showers, Karna and Drona's son and Kripa and Salya and Vrishasena and Duryodhana.
Mbh.7.144.7443 Drona's son also, on his car, rushed against Phalguna, the son of Pritha.
Mbh.7.144.7445 That foremost of car-warriors, viz, the mighty-armed Arjuna, afflicted by those arrowy showers of Kripa and Drona's son felt great pain.
Mbh.7.144.7523 Then Vrishasena, the son of Karna, and Salya, the ruler of the Madras, and Drona's son, encompassed the grandson of Sini from all sides.
Mbh.7.144.7531 Drona's son and Kritavarman and other mighty car-warriors, as also hundreds of foremost Kshatriyas, were all vanquished by Satyaki with only one bow.
Mbh.7.152.7960 And smiling the while, he also, with a broad-headed shaft felled the driver of Drona's car.
Mbh.7.153.8047 Beholding that force, O Bharata, thus routed on that night by Drona, Jishnu asked Govinda to proceed towards Drona's car.
Mbh.7.153.8049 Bhimasena also, beholding Phalguna proceed towards Drona, commanded his own charioteer, saying, Bear me towards Drona's division'
Mbh.7.153.8051 Beholding the two brothers resolutely proceeding towards Drona's division, the mighty car-warriors among the Panchalas, the Srinjayas, the Matsyas, the Chedis, the Karushas, the Kosalas, and the Kaikeyas, O king, all followed them.
Mbh.7.153.8077 Ghatotkacha, deeply pierced in his vital parts by Drona's son, and feeling great pain, took up a wheel having a thousand spokes.
Mbh.7.153.8081 And as that wheel coursed swiftly towards Drona's son, the latter cut it into fragments by means of his shafts.
Mbh.7.153.8092 Drona's son, however, striking it with his shafts, caused it to fall down on the earth.
Mbh.7.153.8115 And Ghatotkacha began to shower upon that bull among car-warriors, viz, Drona's son, shafts of the measure of Aksha of battle car, like a cloud pouring torrents of rain.
Mbh.7.153.8116 Drona's son however, with his own shafts, checked that arrowy shower before it could reach him.
Mbh.7.153.8119 Observing that his illusion was dispelled by Drona's son, proud of his prowess in battle, Ghatotkacha, once more making himself invisible, created an illusion.
Mbh.7.153.8121 Beholding that mountain-like mass of antimony, with countless weapons falling from it, Drona's son was not at all moved.
Mbh.7.153.8124 Then the Rakshasa, becoming a mass of blue clouds in the firmament, decked with rainbow, began furiously to shower upon Drona's son in that battle a downpour of stones and rocks.
Mbh.7.153.8126 Drona's son, that foremost of men, covering then all the points of the compass with his shafts, slew a hundred thousand car-warriors.
Mbh.7.153.8149 Already pierced by Drona's son with shafts, all their limbs have been exceedingly mangled.
Mbh.7.153.8153 Ghatotkacha, filled with rage, struck Drona's son in the chest with ten powerful shafts fierce as poison or fire.
Mbh.7.153.8155 Once more Ghatotkacha, with a broad-headed shaft, quickly cut off the bright bow that was in the hands of Drona's son.
Mbh.7.153.8161 That foremost of victors, viz, Drona's son, having burnt thy foes, shone brilliantly like the blazing Yuga-fire after having burnt all creatures at the end of the Yuga.
Mbh.7.153.8166 Beholding that thick shower of weapons falling upon the head of Drona's son, thy warriors were much pained.
Mbh.7.153.8170 Then those mighty Rakshasas, thus afflicted Drona's son, became filled with fury and rushed against the former.
Mbh.7.153.8172 Whilst consuming that Rakshasa force, Drona's son in that battle shone resplendent like the Samvartaka fire, while burning all creatures at the end of the Yuga.
Mbh.7.153.8175 Riding on that formidable car equipped with triumphal banners, that slayer of foes once more proceeded against Drona's son, desirous of a single combat with the latter.
Mbh.7.153.8176 Endued with terrible prowess, the Rakshasa, uttering a loud leonine roar, hurled in that encounter at Drona's son, having whirled it previously, a terrible Asani of celestial workmanship, and equipped with eight bells
Mbh.7.153.8177 Drona's son, however, jumping down from his car, having left his bow thereon, seized it and hurled it back at Ghatotkacha himself.
Mbh.7.153.8180 Beholding that feat of Drona's son, viz, his having jumped down and seized that terrible Asani of celestial workmanship, all creatures applauded it.
Mbh.7.153.8183 Then Drona's son shot arrows and long shafts by thousands.
Mbh.7.153.8188 The prowess then that Drona's son displayed on that occasion was exceedingly wonderful, in as much as, O Bharata, none else amongst all creatures is capable of accomplishing such feats.
Mbh.7.153.8193 And Drona's son caused a bloody river of impetuous current to flow there.
Mbh.7.153.8200 Having slain the Rakshasas, Drona's son then began to afflict the son of Hidimva with arrows.
Mbh.7.153.8204 And once more, with a keen shaft, Drona's son' uttering a leonine roar, slew Prishdhra, and then proud Chandrasena.
Mbh.7.153.8206 Then, O king, Drona's son despatched Srutayus to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.153.8211 Beholding him fallen down and believing him to be dead, the mighty car-warrior Dhrishtadyumna took him away from the presence of Drona's son and caused him to be placed upon another car.
Mbh.7.155.8362 Duryodhana, and Drona, and Sakuni, and Durmukha, and Jaya, and Duhsasana, and Vrishasena, and the ruler of the Madras, and thyself too and Somadatta and Drona's son, and Vivinsati, all these heroes skilled in battle, are here, clad in mail.
Mbh.7.156.8374 Filled with fury, Drona's son rushed towards Karna, in the very sight of the Kuru king, like a lion at an infuriated elephant.
Mbh.7.156.8429 Thus addressed, Drona's son, and Kripa, and Salya, and that great car-warrior, viz, the son of Hridika, beholding the son of Kunti coming towards them like Sakra himself towards the Daitya host, all advanced against Partha for rescuing the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.156.8471 Thus addressed by his maternal uncle, Drona's son, that foremost of all wielders of weapons, quickly repaired unto Duryodhana and addressing him, said these words, When I am alive, O son of Gandhari, it behoveth thee not to engage thyself in battle, disregarding me, O descendant of Kuru, that am ever desirous of thy good.
Mbh.7.157.8501 SECTION CLIX Sanjaya said, Thus addressed by Duryodhana, Drona's son, that warrior difficult of defeat in battle, set his heart upon destroying the foe, like Indra bent upon destroying the Daityas.
Mbh.7.157.8535 Thus addressed by him, all those combatants, O king, poured showers of weapons upon Drona's son like clouds pouring torrents of rain.
Mbh.7.157.8536 Baffling that shower, Drona's son in that battle, slew ten brave warriors amongst them, in the very sight, O lord, of Dhrishtadyumna and the sons of Pandu.
Mbh.7.157.8538 Beholding those brave warriors, viz, the Panchalas and the Somakas, flying away, Dhrishtadyumna, O king, rushed against Drona's son in that battle.
Mbh.7.157.8539 Surrounded then by a hundred brave and unreturning car-warriors mounted upon cars, decked with gold, and the rattle of whose wheels resembled the roar or rain-charged clouds, the mighty car-warrior Dhrishtadyumna, the son of the Panchala king, beholding his warriors slain, addressed Drona's son and said these words, O foolish son of the preceptor, what is the use of slaying vulgar combatants.
Mbh.7.157.8548 Thus covered in that encounter with arrows by Drona's son, the Panchala prince, difficult to defeat in battle, said Thou knowest not of my origin, O Brahmana, or of my vow.
Mbh.7.157.8558 The mighty-armed son of Prishata, however, that best of car-warriors, surrounded by all the Panchala troops, though thus struck with arrows in that encounter by Drona's son, did not tremble, relying as he did on his own energy.
Mbh.7.157.8562 Beholding that fierce battle, inspiring terror, between Drona's and Prishata's son, the Siddhas and Charanas and other sky-ranging beings applauded them highly.
Mbh.7.157.8569 Then Drona's son, O king, making a rush, cut off the bow, and standard, and umbrella, and the two Parshni drivers, and the principal driver, and the four steeds, of the high-souled son of Prishata.
Mbh.7.157.8571 Beholding those feats of Drona's son, resembling those of Vasava himself in battle, the Pandava host, O bull of Bharata race, began to tremble in fear.
Mbh.7.157.8573 The Panchalas then, as also the Srinjayas, thus disconcerted in battle, fled away leaving Drona's son, with their banners torn.
Mbh.7.158.8577 SECTION CLX Sanjaya said, Then king Yudhishthira, and Bhimasena, the son of Pandu, O monarch, encompassed Drona's son on all sides.
Mbh.7.158.8586 About this time a fierce uproar arose near Drona's car, in the midst of which could be heard the words, Slay, Strike fearlessly, Pierce, cut in pieces.
Mbh.7.158.8592 Similarly, many foremost of car-warriors, skilled in smiting, belonging to thy son, accompanied by a large force, proceeded towards Drona's car for supporting the latter.
Mbh.7.159.8635 Meanwhile, the Pandava also, O king, with all the Prabhadrakas and accompanied by a large force, rushed against Drona's army.
Mbh.7.159.8655 He who hath been created for Drona's destruction will, without doubt, slay him.
Mbh.7.160.8675 And Drona's son and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, placed themselves on the right and the left flanks.
Mbh.7.161.8725 Who guarded the right wheel and who the left wheel of Drona's car?
Mbh.7.161.8744 Upon the slaughter of all the Srinjayas at the head of the Pandava army, Drona's son without doubt, will slay Dhrishtadyumna in battle.
Mbh.7.161.8754 Drona's son covered the, ruler of the Panchalas, and Drona himself covered the Srinjaya, with showers of straight shafts in that battle.
Mbh.7.162.8799 The mighty car-warrior Kritavarman, then, having vanquished Yudhishthira, the son of Dharma, once more began to protect the wheel of Drona's car
Mbh.7.163.8823 With his own shafts resembling snakes of virulent poison, Drona's son, however, in that battle, quickly dispelled that arrowy shower before it could reach him.
Mbh.7.163.8828 Like the wind dispersing mighty masses of clouds, Drona's son, O king, without his senses being agitated, destroyed with his own terrible arrows, inspired by mantras with the force of celestial weapons, that fierce, unbearable and unrivalled shower of weapons, whose sound resembled the roar of thunder, and which fell incessantly upon him.
Mbh.7.163.8831 Drona's son then, filling all the points of the compass with his shafts, shrouded the Rakshasa himself, for doing what was agreeable to thy sons.
Mbh.7.163.8832 Then commenced a battle once more between Drona's son and the Rakshasa on that night of thick darkness, which resembled the encounter between Sakra and Prahlada.
Mbh.7.163.8833 Then Ghatotkacha, filled with rage, struck Drona's son, in that battle, on the chest with ten shafts, each resembling the Yuga-fire, Deeply pierced the Rakshasa, the mighty son of Drona began to tremble in that battle like a tall tree shaken by the wind.
Mbh.7.163.8836 Indeed, O monarch, all thy warriors then regarded Drona's son as slain.
Mbh.7.163.8840 Deeply pierced, O monarch, by Drona's son who was proud of his prowess in battle, that prince of Rakshasas, endued with great strength, sat down on the terrace of his car.
Mbh.7.163.8841 Beholding Hidimva's son deprived of his senses, his charioteer, inspired with fear, speedily removed him from the field, bearing him away from the presence of Drona's son.
Mbh.7.163.8842 Having pierced that prince of Rakshasas, viz, Ghatotkacha, in that encounter thus, Drona's son, that mighty car-warrior, uttered a loud roar.
Mbh.7.163.8844 As regards Bhimasena who was battling in from of Drona's cal king Duryodhana himself pierced him with many whetted shafts.
Mbh.7.168.9032 Holding his formidable bow and repeatedly stretching his bowstring, the Panchala prince rushed towards Drona's car decked with gold.
Mbh.7.168.9040 That slayer of hostile heroes, that warrior endued with great beauty, stretching that formidable bow to his ear, shot a terrible shaft capable of taking Drona's life.
Mbh.7.168.9047 And Drona's son pierced him with five, and Drona himself with five, and Salya pierced him with nine, and Duhsasana with three.
Mbh.7.168.9052 Indeed, O king, Dhrishtadyumna, in that dreadful battle, quickly pierced Drona himself, and Karna, and Drona's son, and thy son.
Mbh.7.169.9163 Thus those fierce warriors, vanquished thousands of kings; on thy side that were endued with great energy, at the sight of thy Son and of Karna and the heroic Drona and Drona's son, O monarch
Mbh.7.171.9237 Our army is flying away, O slayer of Madhu, our troops, broken and mangled with Drona's shafts and frightened by Karna, are unable to make a stand.
Mbh.7.175.9508 Meanwhile, thy soldiers, O king, though protected by their leaders all over the field and Drona and Drona's son and Kripa and others, uttered loud wails, saying, All is lost'
Mbh.7.181.9856 What also did they do in battle, O sire, viz, Drona's son and Karna and Kripa and others headed by Duryodhana that protected the preceptor?
Mbh.7.181.9905 The mighty-armed Bhimasena is now engaged with Drona's division'
Mbh.7.182.9942 The king Duryodhana, desiring to protect Drona's life, rushed, filled with wrath, against the Pandavas, with great force and perseverance.
Mbh.7.184.10115 And Drupada, in anger, hurled at Drona's car a terrible dart made of iron and decked with gold and resembling a large snake.
Mbh.7.184.10130 Having said these words, Vrikodara, filled with rage, penetrated into Drona's array, began to afflict and rout that host.
Mbh.7.185.10168 During that great carnage of the Kshatriyas on earth, on that field of battle, enhancing the terrors of the timid and looking like a crematorium neither Karna, nor Drona, nor Arjuna, nor Yudhishthira, nor Bhimasena, nor the twins, nor the Panchala prince, nor Satyaki, nor Duhsasana, nor Drona's son, nor Duryodhana nor Suvala's son, nor Kripa, nor the ruler of the Madras, nor Kritavarman, nor others, nor my own self, nor the earth, nor points of the compass, could be seen, O king, for all of them, mingled with the troops, were shrouded by clouds of dust.
Mbh.7.186.10228 As soon as those weapons, issued from Drona's bow, Dhananjaya destroyed them quickly.
Mbh.7.187.10333 These addressed Dhananjaya loudly and said, Rush, O Arjuna, with speed and drive away the Kurus from Drona's vicinity.
Mbh.7.187.10336 Indeed, on that the fifth day of Drona's command those heroic combatants, O Bharata, were grounded and crushed with great-celerity by Bharadwaja's son
Mbh.7.188.10338 The great car-warriors of the Pandava army, endued with might and energy, though slaughtered, O king, by Drona's weapons, were not yet afraid of Drona in that battle.
Mbh.7.188.10357 Keeping the true fact within his mind, he said what was untrue, Hearing those highly disagreeable words of Bhima and reflecting upon them, Drona's limbs seemed to dissolve like sands in water.
Mbh.7.189.10443 Sometimes, he stayed upon the yoke, and sometimes under the haunches of Drona's red steeds.
Mbh.7.190.10542 These five were myself, Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha, and Drona's son, Aswatthaman, and Vasudeva of Vrishni's race, and king Yudhishthira the just, the son of Pandu.
Mbh.7.190.10546 As regards Prishata's son, though everybody cried fie on him, yet casting his eyes on the lifeless Drona's head, he began to drag it.
Mbh.7.190.10551 The mighty-armed Dhananjaya, the son of Kunti, before Drona's head was cut off had said, O son of Drupada, bring the preceptor alive, do not slay him.
Mbh.7.190.10556 Covered with Drona's blood, Dhrishtadyumna then Jumped from the car down upon the ground.
Mbh.7.191.10593 Taking with him ten thousand cars and three thousand elephants, Vrishasena also fled with speed at the sight of Drona's fall.
Mbh.7.191.10604 While the troops, deprived of energy, were thus flying away with speed, only Drona's son, Aswatthaman, like a huge alligator coming up against the current of a stream, rushed against his foes.
Mbh.7.191.10607 Proceeding towards Duryodhana, Drona's son, approaching the Kuru king, said, Why, O Bharata, are the troops flying away as if in fear?
Mbh.7.191.10614 Hearing these words of Drona's son on that occasion, Duryodhana, that bull among kings, felt himself unable to impart the bitter intelligence.
Mbh.7.191.10616 Beholding Drona's son on his car, the king became bathed in tears.
Mbh.7.191.10618 Then Saradwat's son, O king, repeatedly feeling great anguish, told Drona's son how his sire had been slain'
Mbh.7.191.10624 Urged by fate, the Pandavas, the Kaikeyas, the Matsyas, and the Panchalas, O foremast of regenerate ones, approaching Drona's car, began to perish.
Mbh.7.191.10644 Then Prishata's son, seizing Drona's head with his left hand and disregarding the loud admonitions of all the heroes, cut off that head'
Mbh.7.191.10650 Sanjaya continued, Hearing of the slaughter of his sire in battle, Drona's son, like a snake struck with the foot, became filled with fierce wrath.
Mbh.7.193.10674 Hearing of the slaughter of his sire by Dhrishtadyumna, of sinful deeds, Drona's son was filled with grief and rage, O bull among men.
Mbh.7.193.10733 Hearing these words of Drona's son, the Kuru army rallied.
Mbh.7.193.10739 Meanwhile, Drona's son, having said those words, O Bharata, touched water and invoked the celestial weapon called the Narayana
Mbh.7.194.10749 Indeed, seeing that fierce and terrible weapon invoked by Drona's son, all the kings, inspired with fear, felt great pain'
Mbh.7.194.10750 Dhritarashtra said, Tell me, O Sanjaya, what counsel was adopted by the Pandavas for the protection of Dhrishtadyumna when they saw the Kauravas once more advance to battle, rallied by Drona's son who was scorched by grief and unable to brook the slaughter of his sire'
Mbh.7.195.10842 Knowing me, thy brother, to be such, O bull among men, it behoveth thee not, O thou of immeasurable prowess, to entertain any fear about Drona's son.
Mbh.7.195.10852 I do not think it at all wonderful that Drona's son, urging the Kauravas to battle, will cause them to be slain, unable to protect them himself.
Mbh.7.196.10887 Tell me, O Sanjaya, what the sons of Pritha, as also all the other royal bowmen in the world, hearing of Drona's slaughter, said unto the prince of Panchala'
Mbh.7.197.10988 SECTION CC Sanjaya said, Then Drona's son began to cause a great carnage amongst his foes in that battle, like the Destroyer himself at the end of the Yuga.
Mbh.7.197.10999 The terrified Kauravas had their fears dispelled by Drona's son.
Mbh.7.197.11000 The Pandus and the Panchalas had become fierce in consequence of Drona's slaughter.
Mbh.7.197.11005 Then Drona's son, aiming at the host of the Pandavas and the Panchalas, invoked the weapon called Narayana.
Mbh.7.197.11023 Having crossed the Bhishma and the Drona oceans in this battle, that are incapable of being crossed by the timid, shall I sink with all my followers in the vestige, represented by Drona's son, of a cow's hoof?
Mbh.7.197.11036 I shall, with my shafts, oppose this weapon of Drona's son.
Mbh.7.197.11037 With this heavy mace of mine, that is decked with gold, I shall career in this battle like the Destroyer himself, quelling this weapon of Drona's son.
Mbh.7.197.11042 Let people witness today the prowess of these two arms of my broad-chested self, while engaged in baffling the bright and blazing weapon of Drona's son.
Mbh.7.197.11049 Then Drona's son, smiling at the rushing Bhima and addressing him in proper words covered him with arrows, inspired with mantras and equipped with blazing points.
Mbh.7.197.11052 That weapon of Drona's son, directed against Bhimasena increased in energy and might, O king, like a conflagration assisted by the wind.
Mbh.7.198.11059 Shrouded with the weapon of Drona's son, Bhima, his steeds, driver, and car became incapable of being gazed at, like a fire of blazing flame in the midst of another fire.
Mbh.7.198.11061 Indeed, Bhima himself, his car, steeds, and driver, O sire, thus shrouded by Drona's son seemed to be in the midst of a conflagration.
Mbh.7.198.11062 As the Yuga fire consuming the entire universe with its mobile and immobile creatures when the hour of dissolution comes, at last enters the mouth of the Creator, even so at the weapon of Drona's son began to enter the body of Bhimasena.
Mbh.7.198.11064 Beholding that weapon thus investing Bhima all around, and seeing Drona's son swelling with energy and might, the latter being then without an antagonist, and observing also that all the warriors of the Pandava army had laid down their weapons and that all the mighty car-warriors of that host headed by Yudhishthira had turned away their faces from the foe, those two heroes, viz, Arjuna and Vasudeva, both endued with great splendour, quickly alighting from their car, ran towards Bhima.
Mbh.7.198.11069 Thereupon, that terrible and invincible weapon of Drona's son began to increase in might and energy.
Mbh.7.198.11083 When, after that weapon had been baffled, the Pandava host, stood arrayed, Duryodhana, O king, addressing Drona's son, said, O Aswatthaman, once more use that weapon speedily since the Panchalas are once more arrayed, desirous of victory'
Mbh.7.198.11095 Dhritarashtra said, After Drona had been slain with the aid of fraud, and the Narayana weapon baffled, what, indeed, did Drona's son, thus urged by Duryodhana then, do, beholding the Parthas once more arrived for battle freed from the Narayana weapon, and careering at the head of their divisions'
Mbh.7.198.11096 Sanjaya said, Remembering the slaughter of his sire, Drona's son, owning the device of the lion's tail on his banner, filled with rage and casting of all fears, rushed against the son of Prishata.
Mbh.7.198.11098 Then Dhrishtadyumna, O King, pierced Drona's son that resembled a blazing fire, with four and sixty shafts.
Mbh.7.198.11100 Repeatedly piercing Drona's son, and causing the earth to tremble with his leonine roars.
Mbh.7.198.11102 Making death itself his goal, the mighty son of Prishata, O king, accomplished in weapons and endued with sureness of aim, then rushed against Drona's son alone.
Mbh.7.198.11104 Then Drona's son, in that battle, covered the angry prince with winged shafts.
Mbh.7.198.11107 Drona's son began to grind his foe with other arrows.
Mbh.7.198.11110 Beholding the troops turning away from battle and Dhrishtadyumna exceedingly afflicted, the grandson of Sini quickly urged his car against that of Drona's son.
Mbh.7.198.11137 Seeing this his driver speedily bore him away from Drona's son.
Mbh.7.198.11144 Drona's son, however, with five and twenty shafts, resembling snakes of virulent poison, cut off, almost at the same time, those five and twenty arrows shot at him.
Mbh.7.198.11147 Then all those great car-warriors, O king, pierced Drona's son unitedly and separately with many shafts, whetted on stone equipped with wings of gold.
Mbh.7.198.11148 The youthful prince of the Chedis pierced Drona's son with twenty and Partha pierced him with three.
Mbh.7.198.11149 Then Drona's son struck Arjuna with six arrows, and Vasudeva with six, and Bhima with five, and each of the other two viz, the Malava and the Paurava, with two arrows.
Mbh.7.198.11151 Then piercing Partha once more with a shower of arrows, Drona's son uttered a leonine roar.
Mbh.7.198.11152 With the sharp, well-tempered, and terrible arrows shot by Drona's son, the earth, the sky, the firmament, and the points of the compass, cardinal and subsidiary, all became entirely shrouded both in his front and rear.
Mbh.7.198.11159 The scorcher of foes then covered Drona's son in that battle with hundreds of keen arrows resembling angry snakes of virulent poison.
Mbh.7.198.11161 The mighty-armed Bhima then, possessed of great strength, cut off with a broad-headed arrow the bow of Drona's son and then pierced Drona's son himself with a powerful shaft.
Mbh.7.198.11163 Then those two, viz, Drona's son and Bhima, both possessed of great prowess and might, began to shower their arrowy downpours like two masses of rain-charged clouds.
Mbh.7.198.11164 Gold-winged arrows, whetted on stone and engraved with Bhima's name shrouded Drona's son, like gathering masses of clouds shrouding the sun.
Mbh.7.198.11165 Similarly, Bhima was soon shrouded with hundreds and thousands of strong arrows shot by Drona's son.
Mbh.7.198.11166 Though shrouded in that battle by Drona's son, that warrior of great skill, Bhima yet felt no pain, O monarch, which seemed exceedingly wonderful.
Mbh.7.198.11168 Those shafts, O sire, failing upon the shoulders of Drona's son, quickly pierced his body, like snakes penetrating into an ant-hill.
Mbh.7.198.11170 Recovering his senses within a moment, O king, Drona's son bathed in blood, mustered all his wrath.
Mbh.7.198.11174 Then Drona's son, O king, cutting off Bhima's bow by means of his arrows, and filled with rage, struck the Pandava in the chest with many keen shafts.
Mbh.7.198.11175 Incapable of brooking that feat, Bhimasena took up another bow and pierced Drona's son in that battle with five keen shafts.
Mbh.7.198.11178 Then bending his formidable bow adorned with gold, Drona's son began to gaze steadfastly at Bhima who was thus shooting his shafts at him.
Mbh.7.198.11183 Indeed, those terrible shafts adorned with gold, shot from the bow of Drona's son, coursed incessantly towards Bhima's car.
Mbh.7.198.11187 Shafts in hundreds and thousands, issuing from it, shrouded Drona's son, that ornament of battle in that encounter.
Mbh.7.198.11189 Then Drona's son, O king, desirous of slaying Bhima, sped at him many gold-decked arrows of keen points steeped in oil.
Mbh.7.198.11190 Showing his superiority to Drona's son Bhimasena cut off each of those arrows into three fragments before they could come at him.
Mbh.7.198.11193 Then Drona's son that warrior acquainted with the highest weapons, quickly destroying that arrowy shower by the illusion of his own weapons, cut off Bhima's bow in that encounter.
Mbh.7.198.11198 Then Drona's son, O monarch, with a straight shaft, pierced the forehead of Bhima's driver.
Mbh.7.198.11203 Then Drona's son, shooting his shafts fiercely, pursued those broken troops, causing a great carnage among them.
Mbh.7.198.11214 Vibhatsu had never addressed Drona's son before in this way.
Mbh.7.198.11218 Addressed, from wrath, in such harsh and cruel words by Partha, O king, Drona's son, that foremost of all mighty bowmen, became highly angry with Partha and especially with Krishna.
Mbh.7.198.11247 We had never before, O king, heard of or seen the like of that weapon which Drona's son created in wrath on that occasion.
Mbh.7.198.11334 Sanjaya continued, Hearing these words of Vyasa, Drona's son, that mighty car-warrior, bowed unto Rudra and regarded Kesava as worthy of the highest regards.
Mbh.8.1.3 Vaishampayana said, After Drona had been slain, O monarch, the royal warriors of the Kaurava army headed by Duryodhana, with hearts filled with great anxiety, all repaired to Drona's son.
Mbh.8.2.47 I think that, after Drona's death my troops, flying away and sinking in an ocean of grief, resembled shipwrecked mariners struggling on the bosom of the vast deep.
Mbh.8.11.424 In the head was Drona's son and in the neck were all the uterine brothers.
Mbh.8.13.506 And Bhimasena rushed against Drona's son who was engaged in the accomplishment of the most difficult feats.
Mbh.8.14.581 While thy army, slaughtered on all sides, was thus flying away, only Drona's son singly rushed with speed against the mighty Bhimasena.
Mbh.8.15.583 SECTION Sanjaya said, Endued with the greatest activity, Drona's son, O king, displaying the lightness of his arms, pierced Bhima with an arrow.
Mbh.8.15.599 Then at that instant during the progress of that awful battle, Drona's son placing Vrikodara to his right, poured hundreds of fierce arrows upon him like the clouds pouring torrents of rain upon a mountain.
Mbh.8.16.659 Thus summoned by the preceptor's son from desire of battle, Arjuna regarded himself highly honoured, and addressing Janardana said, The samsaptakas should be slain by me, but Drona's son again is summoning me.
Mbh.8.16.662 Thus addressed, Krishna bore Partha who had been summoned according to the rules of triumphant challenge to the vicinity of Drona's son, like Vayu bearing Indra to the sacrifice.
Mbh.8.16.663 Saluting Drona's son whose mind was fixed upon one thing, Keshava, said unto him, O Ashvatthama, be cool, and without losing a moment strike and bear.
Mbh.8.16.671 Drona's son took up another bow that was still more formidable.
Mbh.8.16.673 then Drona's son, with good care, stupefying Arjuna in that battle, shot thousands and tens of thousands and millions of arrows.
Mbh.8.16.675 Piercing Madhava and the son of Pandu with the thick arrowy shower, Drona's son filled with joy, roared aloud like a vast mass of congregated clouds.
Mbh.8.16.688 Without losing a moment, the son of Pandu once more pierced Drona's son resembling a huge hill, with shafts of great impetuosity and the splendour of the Sun, like the wielder of the thunderbolt piercing a mountain with the thunder.
Mbh.8.16.692 Leaving the samsaptakas then the son of Pandu rushed towards Drona's son like a donor abandoning unworthy guests, for proceeding towards one that is worthy
Mbh.8.17.701 Checking the shafts of Drona's son, Arjuna covered him with twice as many arrows equipped with goodly wings, and shrouding that foremost of heroes and his steeds and driver and standard, began to strike the samsaptakas.
Mbh.8.17.708 Checking with his own shafts those of Arjuna, Drona's son shrouding both Arjuna and Vasudeva with his arrows, gave a loud roar, like a mass of clouds at the close of summer after shrouding the Sun or the Moon in the firmament.
Mbh.8.17.712 Then Drona's son without losing a moment, aiming ten foremost of arrows, sped them quickly as if they formed only one arrow.
Mbh.8.17.725 Indeed, Drona's son, restraining his steeds, and having comforted himself a little, O sire, entered the force of Karna, teeming with cars and steeds and men.
Mbh.8.20.814 Sanjaya said, Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Drona's son and Karna and Arjuna and Janardana, those thorough masters of the science of weapons, are regarded by thee as the foremost of car-warriors.
Mbh.8.20.827 Fearlessly addressing in sweet words that warrior who then seemed to dance on his car, Drona's son, that foremost of smiters, smiling the while, summoned him and said, O king, O thou with eyes like the petals of the lotus, thy birth is noble and learning great.
Mbh.8.20.835 Then Drona's son, telling him Strike assailed him with vigour.
Mbh.8.20.837 Then Drona's son, that best of preceptors, smiling the while, struck Pandya with some fierce arrows, capable of penetrating into the very vitals and resembling flames of fire.
Mbh.8.20.841 Having then, with his sharp shafts, cut off the arrows of Drona's son, Pandya then cut off the stretched bow-string of Ashvatthama, endued with the splendour of the sun.
Mbh.8.20.842 Then Drona's son, that slayer of foes, stringing his unstringed bow, and seeing that his men had meanwhile speedily yoked other excellent steeds unto his car, sped thousands of arrows at his foe.
Mbh.8.20.846 Beholding the lightness of hand displayed by his foe, Drona's son, drawing his bow to a circle, began to shoot his arrows like a mass of clouds pouring torrents of rain.
Mbh.8.20.851 Then Drona's son cutting off the standard, smeared with sandal-paste and other perfumed unguents and bearing the device of the Malaya mountain on it, of the roaring Pandya, slew the four steeds of the latter.
Mbh.8.20.853 Checking with the weapons those of his enemy, and cutting off all the weapons of the latter, Drona's son, although he obtained the opportunity to do his enemy the crowning evil, still slew him not, from desire of battling with him for some time more.
Mbh.8.20.861 Pandya with that lance crushed to pieces the diadem of Drona's son adorned with foremost of jewels and diamonds of the first water and the very best kind of gold and excellent cloth and strings of pearls.
Mbh.8.20.868 Having cut off numerous steeds and men and elephants into pieces and offered them as food into the Rakshasas, king Pandya was thus quieted by Drona's son with his shafts like a blazing fire in a crematorium, extinguished with water after it has received a libation in the shape of a lifeless body.
Mbh.8.28.1192 Beholding him in that situation of great peril, Karna and Drona's son and Kripa and others rushed suddenly towards the spot, desirous of rescuing the king.
Mbh.8.30.1304 Drona's son, however, cut off that shaft into seven fragments.
Mbh.8.30.1305 Cutting off then the bow of Drona's son and slaying the four steeds of the latter with his arrow, the son of Pandu next cut off the formidable bow of Kripa too.
Mbh.8.32.1456 Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and thyself and the valiant ruler of the Bhojas, and Shakuni the son of Subala, and Drona's son and myself, constituted the chief strength of our army.
Mbh.8.41.2229 Why didst thou not slay Partha at Virata's city when thou hadst the advantage of being protected by Drona and Drona's son and Kripa and Bhishma and the other Kauravas?
Mbh.8.51.2935 Beholding the son of Subala, and Kritavarma, and Drona's son, and Adhiratha's son, and Kripa, engaged with the Pandavas, the Kauravas rallied and came back to the fight.
Mbh.8.54.3061 Then Drona's son checked Yudhishthira as the latter, with his son and troops, was rushing towards the car of Sharadvata's son.
Mbh.8.55.3095 Conversant with all weapons, Drona's son encompassed Yudhishthira in that battle.
Mbh.8.55.3096 The welkin being covered with the shafts of Drona's son, nothing could be seen.
Mbh.8.55.3109 Filled then with rage and breathing, O king, like a snake of virulent poison, Drona's son pierced Satyaki in return with five and twenty arrows whetted on stone.
Mbh.8.55.3114 The latter then, that great car-warrior, taking up another bow, pierced Drona's son, first with three arrows and then with many others equipped with sharp points.
Mbh.8.55.3117 The son of Dharma then, O king, taking up another formidable bow, pierced Drona's son with seventy arrows in the arms and the chest.
Mbh.8.55.3118 Then Satyaki, filled with rage in that battle, cut off the bow of Drona's son, that great smiter, with a sharp crescent-shaped arrow and uttered a loud roar.
Mbh.8.55.3122 Then the Pandava warriors headed by Yudhishthira, shooting sharp shafts, all rushed with impetuosity towards Drona's son, that foremost of all wielders of weapons.
Mbh.8.55.3124 Then like a fire in the forest consuming heaps of dry grass and straw, that mighty car-warrior, viz, Drona's son, having showers of arrows for his flames, consumed the Pandava troops in that battle, who resembled a heap of dry grass and straw.
Mbh.8.55.3126 People then, O monarch, beholding the prowess of Drona's son, regarded all the Pandavas as already slain by him.
Mbh.8.55.3127 Then Yudhishthira, that great car-warrior and disciple of Drona, filled with rage and the desire to retaliate, addressed Drona's son, saying O tiger among men, thou hast no affection, thou hast no gratitude, since thou desirest to slay me today.
Mbh.8.55.3138 Thus covered by Drona's son.
Mbh.8.56.3179 Meanwhile the mighty Karna, having vanquished Satyaki and desirous of rescuing the Kuru king, proceeded straight against the face of Drona's slayer, that warrior of fierce shafts.
Mbh.8.56.3262 Indeed, Drona's son rushed, shaking his formidable bow, and taking with him many terrible arrows like the Sun himself appearing with his own rays.
Mbh.8.56.3267 With those falling shafts, O monarch, sped by Drona's son, both Krishna and Dhananjaya were completely shrouded on the car.
Mbh.8.56.3272 Never before, O king, did I see prowess like that of Drona's son in that battle while he was engaged in shrouding the two Krishnas with shafts.
Mbh.8.56.3278 During the progress of that dreadful battle between Drona's son and the Pandava, during that time when the mighty son of Drona, O monarch, thus prevailed over his antagonist and the son of Kunti lost his energy, Krishna became filled with rage.
Mbh.8.56.3280 Filled with rage, Krishna addressed Partha in an affectionate tone, saying, This, O Partha, that I behold in battle regarding thee, is exceedingly strange, since Drona's son, O Partha, surpasseth thee today!
Mbh.8.58.3368 Resembling the Destroyer himself in impetuosity and Indra himself in prowess, yonder proceedeth Drona's son, O thou of Kuru's race, that hero who is the foremost of all wielders of weapons.
Mbh.8.59.3398 Filled with rage, Drona's son, that subjugator of hostile towns, addressing Dhrishtadyumna, said, Wait, wait, O slayer of a Brahmana, thou shalt not escape me today with life
Mbh.8.59.3400 As Drona while alive, beholding the son of Prishata, O sire, had become cheerless and regarded him as his death, even so the son of Prishata, that slayer of hostile heroes, beholding Drona's son in that battle, now regarded him as his death.
Mbh.8.59.3401 Soon, however, remembering that he was unslayable in battle by means of weapons, he rushed with great speed against Drona's son, like the Destroyer running against the Destroyer at the time of the universal dissolution.
Mbh.8.59.3402 Drona's heroic son, however, O monarch, beholding Dhrishtadyumna stationed before him, drew deep breaths, in wrath, and rushed towards him.
Mbh.8.59.3408 Having said these words, the wrathful commander of the Pandava forces, viz, the son of Prishata, pierced Drona's son with a keen arrow.
Mbh.8.59.3409 Then Drona's son filled with great rage, shrouded every side of Dhrishtadyumna, O king, in that battle, with straight arrows.
Mbh.8.59.3411 Similarly, the son of Prishata, O king, shrouded Drona's son, that ornament of battle, with arrows, in the very sight of Karna.
Mbh.8.59.3413 Then Dhrishtadyumna in that battle cut off the very tough and formidable bow of Drona's son, as also all his arrows resembling snakes of virulent poison.
Mbh.8.59.3414 Drona's son, however, with his arrows, destroyed within the twinkling of an eye the bow, the dart, the mace, the standard, the steeds, the driver, and the car of Prishata's son.
Mbh.8.59.3423 O mighty-armed one, O crusher of foes, rescue the son of Prishata, who is now within the jaws of Drona's son as if within the jaws of Death himself
Mbh.8.59.3424 Having said these words, the valiant Vasudeva urged the steeds towards that spot where Drona's son was.
Mbh.8.59.3425 Those steeds, of the splendour of the moon, urged by Keshava, proceeded towards the car of Drona's son, devouring the very skies.
Mbh.8.59.3432 Arjuna then, O king, pierced Drona's son with many arrows.
Mbh.8.59.3433 Filled with rage, Drona's son struck Arjuna in the arms and the chest.
Mbh.8.59.3434 Thus provoked, Partha, in that battle, sped at Drona's son, a long shaft that resembled a second rod of Death, or rather, Death himself.
Mbh.8.59.3438 Meanwhile the driver of Drona's son, beholding the latter senseless, quickly bore him away on his car from the field of battle.
Mbh.8.59.3439 Beholding Prishata's son rescued and Drona's son afflicted, the Pancalas, O king, expectant of victory, began to utter loud shouts.
Mbh.8.60.3456 The force of the heroic Duryodhana's shafts, or Drona's son's or Kripa's or Karna's would break down the very mountains.
Mbh.8.64.3708 SECTION Sanjaya said, Meanwhile Drona's son, surrounded by a large car-force, O king, suddenly proceeded to that spot where Partha was.
Mbh.8.64.3720 During the progress of that fierce and awful battle between Drona's son and Partha, the combatants fought without showing any regard for one another, and rushed hither and thither.
Mbh.8.64.3726 Deeply pierced by Drona's son, O Bharata, in that encounter, the wielder of gandiva, that hero of great intelligence forcibly covered the son of Drona with showers of arrows, and then cut off his bow.
Mbh.8.64.3727 His bow cut off Drona's son then, taking up a spiked mace whose touch resembled that of thunder's, hurled it, in that encounter, at the diadem-decked Arjuna.
Mbh.8.64.3730 Filled with rage at this, Drona's son, that great car-warrior, began to cover Vibhatsu, aided by the energy of the aindra weapon.
Mbh.8.64.3732 Having baffled that arrowy shower caused by the aindra weapon, Partha soon covered the car of Drona's son with his own arrows.
Mbh.8.64.3735 And then he poured many arrows on the steeds and driver and the bowstring of Drona's son in the very sight of thy warriors.
Mbh.8.64.3736 Having pierced Drona's son in every vital part, Pandu's son, that slayer of hostile heroes, then felled his adversary's driver from the car-niche with a broad-headed arrow.
Mbh.8.64.3737 Drona's son, however, himself, taking up the reins, covered Krishna with many arrows.
Mbh.8.64.3738 The activity of prowess that we then beheld in Drona's son was exceedingly wonderful, since he guided his steeds while he fought with Phalguni.
Mbh.8.64.3741 Already afflicted by the energy of Arjuna's shafts, the steeds of Drona's son thereupon ran away.
Mbh.8.67.3888 SECTION Sanjaya said, Hearing these words of the righteous king who had been filled with anger, that high-souled atiratha, Jishnu of infinite energy, replied unto the invincible Yudhishthira of great might, saying, While battling with the samsaptakas today, Drona's son who always proceedeth at the head of the Kuru troops, O king, suddenly came before me, shooting shafts that resembled snakes of virulent poison.
Mbh.8.67.3890 Slaying full five hundred of those, I then, O foremost of kings, proceeded against Drona's son.
Mbh.8.67.3896 So quickly did Drona's son career in that battle that we could not discern from which side, the left or the right, he shot his arrows, nor could we notice when he took up his arrows and when he let them off.
Mbh.8.67.3897 Indeed, the bow of Drona's son was seen by us to be incessantly drawn to a circle.
Mbh.8.73.4361 Save thee, O tiger among men, what other man in this world is able to vanquish those fierce lords of akshauhinis, those unreturning and invincible heroes, all accomplished in weapons and united together, Shantanu's son Bhishma, and Drona, and Vaikartana, and Kripa, and Drona's son, and king Duryodhana himself?
Mbh.8.73.4422 Grinding those bulls among men, viz, Drona, Drona's son, Kripa and other heroes, he deprived elephants of their riders and mighty car-warriors of their cars.
Mbh.8.75.4550 And Srutasravas was engaged with Drona's son, and Yudhamanyu with Citrasena.
Mbh.8.78.4718 Or, what did Karna, that foremost of victors, or the warriors of my army in that battle, or Kripa, or Kritavarma, or Drona's son Duhshasana, say?
Mbh.8.79.4796 There Kripa, and Kritavarma, and Drona's son, that mighty car-warrior, are protecting king Duryodhana, themselves protected by the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.79.4819 Thou art the equal of Bhishma, of Drona, of Drona's son, of Kripa.
Mbh.8.79.4884 Drona's son also, that mighty car-warrior, rushed towards him, shooting his shafts.
Mbh.8.79.4888 Then Drona's son pierced Dhananjaya with ten foremost of shafts, and Keshava with three, and the four steeds of Dhananjaya with four, and showered many shafts on the Ape on Arjuna's banner.
Mbh.8.79.4891 Stringing that bow as he stood on the earth, and bringing out one after another shafts and weapons, Drona's son, that warrior who excelled in many accomplishments, began to afflict those two unvanquished and foremost of men and pierce them from a near point with many shafts.
Mbh.8.83.5070 Addressing Karna and Suyodhana and Kripa and Drona's son and Kritavarma, he said, Today I shall slay the wretched Duhshasana.
Mbh.8.85.5156 Then Hridika's son and Kripa and Drona's son and Duryodhana and Shakuni's son and Vrika and Kratha and Devavridha, those foremost of Kaurava car-warriors, speedily proceeded against them, armed with their bows and mounted upon their cars of rattle deep as the roar of elephants or the clouds.
Mbh.8.85.5198 With eyes red in wrath, that hero capable of slaying Yama himself if the latter fought with him, then laughed terribly and said unto Karna and all the other Kaurava heroes headed by Duryodhana and Drona's son, these words, Today, O Karna, in thy very sight in this battle, I will despatch the fierce Vrishasena unto Yama's abode with my keen arrows!
Mbh.8.88.5417 Then Drona's son, catching hold of Duryodhana's hand, and adopting a soothing tone, addressed thy son, saying, Be gratified, O Duryodhana!
Mbh.8.94.6014 Then all the kings headed by Drona's son, repeatedly comforting Duryodhana, proceeded towards the camp, frequently looking back at the lofty standard of Arjuna that seemed to be ablaze with his fame.
Mbh.9.1.48 On the side of the Pandavas seven are alive, they are the five Pandava brothers, and Vasudeva, and Satyaki and amongst the Dhartarashtras three are so, Kripa, Kritavarma, and Drona's son, that foremost of victors.
Mbh.9.2.143 Tell me how the five Pandavas and the two Satwatas Krishna and Satyaki, and Kripa and Kritavarma and Drona's son, have escaped with life.
Mbh.9.6.389 After Drona's son had said these words, all the kings stood, surrounding Shalya, and cried victory to him.
Mbh.9.8.468 Then all thy warriors, with Kripa and Kritavarma and Drona's son and Shalya and Subala's son and the other kings that were yet alive, met thy son, and arrived at this understanding, that none of them would individually and alone fight with the Pandavas.
Mbh.9.12.740 cars, O king, despatched by thy son and headed by Drona's son, battled with Vijaya Arjuna.
Mbh.9.14.816 SECTION Sanjaya said, Meanwhile Arjuna, in that battle, pierced with many arrows by the son of Drona as also by the latter's followers, the heroic and mighty car-warriors among the Trigartas, pierced Drona's son in return with three shafts, and each of the other warriors with two.
Mbh.9.14.819 With Drona's son at their head, they encompassed that mighty car-warrior and fought with him, shooting showers of shafts.
Mbh.9.14.842 Staying on that steedless car, Drona's son, smiling the while, hurled at the son of Pandu a heavy mallet that looked like a dreadful mace with iron-spikes.
Mbh.9.14.844 Seeing his mallet cut off, Drona's son of great wrath took up a terrible mace equipped with iron spikes and looking like a mountain summit.
Mbh.9.14.848 The son of Pandu then pierced Drona's son with three other shafts.
Mbh.9.14.849 Though deeply pierced by the mighty Partha, Drona's son, however, of great might, relying upon his own manliness, showed no sign of fear or agitation.
Mbh.9.28.1960 After the Parthas had retired to their camp, Kripa and Drona's son and Kritavarma of the Satwata race, slowly proceeded towards that lake.
Mbh.9.61.4466 Having comforted Gandhari and Dhritarashtra, Keshava of Madhu's race came to know by intuition the evil that was meditated by Drona's son.
Mbh.9.62.4537 The messengers, repairing to Drona's son, represented to him all that had happened regarding the conduct of the mace-encounter and the fall of the king.
Mbh.9.62.4538 Having represented everything unto Drona's son, O Bharata, all of them remained in a thoughtful mood for a long while and then went away, grief-stricken, to the place they came from
Mbh.9.63.4551 Then Drona's son, O monarch, with tearful eyes and breathing like a snake, said these words unto that chief of Bharata's race, that foremost of all the kings on earth, Truly, there is nothing stable in the world of men, since thou, O tiger among men, liest on the bare earth, stained with dust!
Mbh.9.63.4587 Beholding the king in tears and grief, Drona's son flamed up in anger like the fire that is seen at the universal destruction.
Mbh.9.63.4593 Hearing these words of Drona's son, that were highly agreeable to his heart, the Kuru king addressing Kripa, said, O preceptor, bring me without delay a pot full of water
Mbh.9.63.4598 Hearing these words of the king, Kripa, the son of Saradwat, installed Drona's son as generalissimo, at the king's command!
Mbh.10.1.25 What, however, did Kritavarma and Kripa and Drona's son do after my son Duryodhana had been unfairly stuck down
Mbh.10.1.39 At that hour, filled with grief and sorrow, Kritavarma and Kripa and Drona's son all sat down together.
Mbh.10.1.46 Drona's son, however, O Bharata, yielding to the influence of wrath and reverence, could not sleep, but continued to breathe like a snake.
Mbh.10.1.61 Beholding that highly suggestive deed perpetrated in the night by the owl, Drona's son began to reflect on it, desirous of framing his own conduct by the light of that example.
Mbh.10.4.215 Who is there that would, even if he be the chief of the gods himself, fight Drona's son, when the latter proceeds, accompanied by Kripa and protected by Kritavarma?
Mbh.10.5.312 Having approached the gate, Drona's son, that mighty car-warrior, stopped
Mbh.10.6.313 SECTION Dhritarashtra said, Seeing Drona's son stop at the gate of the encampment, what, O Sanjaya, did those two mighty car-warriors, Kripa and Kritavarma, do?
Mbh.10.6.315 Sanjaya said, Inviting Kritavarma, as also the mighty car-warrior Kripa, Drona's son, filled with rage, approached the gate of the camp.
Mbh.10.6.329 Beholding that extraordinary being capable of inspiring the whole world with terror, Drona's son, without feeling any agitation, covered him with showers of celestial weapons.
Mbh.10.6.330 That being, however, devoured all those shafts shot by Drona's son.
Mbh.10.6.341 Drona's son, divested of weapons, beholding that wonderful sight, recollected the words of Kripa, and turning pale with grief, said, He that listens not to the beneficial words of advising friends is obliged to repent, being overwhelmed with calamity, even as my foolish self for having disregarded my two well-wishers.
Mbh.10.6.351 In consequence of the wickedness of my essay, this great calamity has come upon me, otherwise Drona's son would never had been forced to hold back from battle.
Mbh.10.7.430 Drona's son, armed with bow, and with fingers cased in fences made of iguana skins, himself offered up his own self as a victim unto Mahadeva.
Mbh.10.7.442 Having said these words, Drona's son, ascending that sacrificial altar on which a fire blazed brightly, offered himself up as the victim and entered that blazing fire.
Mbh.10.7.450 Filled by that divine being, Drona's son blazed up with energy.
Mbh.10.8.453 SECTION Dhritarashtra said, While Drona's son, that mighty car-warrior, thus proceeded towards the hostile camp, did Kripa and Bhoja stop from fear?
Mbh.10.8.468 Entering into Dhrishtadyumna's chamber, O Bharata, Drona's son beheld the prince of the Pancalas sleeping before him on his bed.
Mbh.10.8.472 Feeling that kick, the prince, irresistible in battle and of immeasurable soul, awaked from sleep and recognised Drona's son standing before him.
Mbh.10.8.475 Striking him with his foot, O king, on both his throat and breast while his victim writhed and roared, Drona's son endeavoured to kill him as if he were an animal.
Mbh.10.8.479 Hearing those indistinct sounds of his, Drona's son said, O wretch of thy race, there is no region for those that slay their preceptors.
Mbh.10.8.486 After Drona's son, that mighty car-warrior, had gone away, the women and all the guards set up a loud wail of woe.
Mbh.10.8.492 At these words, those foremost of warriors suddenly surrounded Drona's son.
Mbh.10.8.495 Attacking him with his foot on the throat and chest, Drona's son slew that great hero also while the latter writhed in agony.
Mbh.10.8.496 Yudhamanyu, coming up and believing his comrade to have been slain by a rakshasa, speedily struck Drona's son in the chest with a mace.
Mbh.10.8.507 Beholding Drona's son, they looked at each other's faces and trembled with fear.
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.10.8.512 Drona's son, beholding them shower their arrows on him, uttered a loud roar and became desirous of slaying those mighty car-warriors.
Mbh.10.8.522 Exceedingly agitated, Nakula's son fell down upon the Earth, upon which Drona's son cut off his head.
Mbh.10.8.524 Furiously rushing at Drona's son, he assailed him violently on the left part of his forehead.
Mbh.10.8.531 Filled with rage at this, Drona's son, possessed of great might, approached Shikhandi and cut him into twain with his sword.
Mbh.10.8.534 Endued with great strength, Drona's son made a heavy carnage amongst the sons, the grandsons, and the followers of Drupada, singling them out one after another.
Mbh.10.8.538 On other days, O sire, the foremost warriors of the Pandava camp used to see in their dreams that figure leading away the sleeping combatants and Drona's son smiting them behind!
Mbh.10.8.539 The Pandava soldiers saw that lady and Drona's son in their dreams every night from the day when the battle between the Kurus and the Pandavas first commenced.
Mbh.10.8.540 Afflicted before by Destiny, they were now smitten by Drona's son who terrified them all with the frightful roars uttered by him.
Mbh.10.8.549 While uttering such shrieks, Drona's son became their Destroyer.
Mbh.10.8.555 Drona's son once more got upon his car of terrible clatter and taking up his bow despatched many with his shafts to Yama's abode.
Mbh.10.8.559 Like an elephant agitating a large lake, Drona's son, irresistible, in battle, agitated the camp of the Pandavas.
Mbh.10.8.584 In the midst of the battle, Drona's son, recognising them, slew them all.
Mbh.10.8.591 Then again, for doing that which was highly agreeable to Drona's son, those two set fire to the Pandava camp in three places.
Mbh.10.8.640 Having perpetrated that feat agreeably to his vow, and having trod in that untrodden way, Drona's son, O lord, forgot his grief for the slaughter of his sire.
Mbh.10.8.641 The Pandava camp, in consequence of the sleep in which all within it were buried, was perfectly still when Drona's son had entered it in the night.
Mbh.10.8.652 It was owing to the absence of the Parthas and the intelligent Keshava as also of Satyaki, that Drona's son could accomplish it.
Mbh.10.9.744 Having heard these piteous lamentations of Drona's son, I came away at early dawn towards the city.
Mbh.10.11.812 O son of Pritha, hearing of the slaughter of those sleeping heroes by Drona's son of sinful deeds, grief burns me as if I were in the midst of a fire.
Mbh.10.11.813 If Drona's son be not made to reap the fruit of that sinful deed of his, if, putting forth your prowess in battle, thou dost not take the life of that wretch of sinful deeds, along with the lives of all his followers, then listen to me, ye Pandavas, I shall sit here in praya
Mbh.10.11.817 As regards Drona's son, he hath gone to a distant forest, O beautiful princess!
Mbh.10.11.819 Draupadi answered, I have heard that Drona's son hath a gem on his head, born with him.
Mbh.10.12.859 At this, Drona's son became filled with sorrow.
Mbh.10.12.868 Thus addressed by me, Drona's son replied, saying, After offering worship to thee, O Krishna, it was my intention to fight thee, O thou of unfading glory!
Mbh.10.13.897 And he also saw Drona's son of wicked deeds sitting beside them, covered with dust, attired in a piece of cloth made of kusha grass, and smeared all over with clarified butter.
Mbh.10.13.899 Drona's son, beholding that terrible bowman coming towards him bow in hand, and the two brothers on Janardana's car, became exceedingly agitated and thought his hour had come.
Mbh.10.14.906 SECTION Vaishampayana said, At the very outset the mighty-armed hero of Dasharha's race understood from signs the intention of Drona's son.
Mbh.10.14.912 Similarly, the weapon that had been shot by Drona's son of fierce energy blazed up with terrible flames within a huge sphere of fire.
Mbh.10.15.926 If I withdraw this high weapon, Drona's son of sinful deeds will then, without doubt, consume us all with the energy of his weapon.
Mbh.10.15.940 Drona's son, beholding those two rishis standing before him, could not by his energy withdraw his own terrible weapon.
Mbh.10.15.941 Unable to withdraw the high weapon in battle, Drona's son, O king, with a cheerless heart, said unto the island-born rishi these words, Threatened by a great danger, and desirous of protecting my life, I let off this weapon, through fear of Bhimasena, O sage!
Mbh.10.15.964 Drona's son said, This my gem is more valuable than all the wealth that has ever been earned by the Pandavas and the Kauravas.
Mbh.10.16.981 SECTION Vaishampayana said, Understanding that that weapon was thrown into the wombs of the Pandava women by Drona's son of sinful deeds, Hrishikesha, with a cheerful heart, said these words unto him: A certain brahmana of pious vows, beholding Virata's daughter who is now daughter-in-law to Arjuna, while she was at Upaplavya, said, While the Kuru line will become extinct, a son will be born to thee.
Mbh.10.16.984 Unto Govinda, that foremost one of the Satvata race, while he was saying these words, Drona's son, filled with wrath, replied, saying, This, O Keshava, that thou sayest from thy partiality for the Pandavas, shall not happen.
Mbh.10.16.1005 Vaishampayana continued, Drona's son, then, having made over his gem to the high-souled Pandavas, cheerlessly proceeded, before their eyes, to the forest.
Mbh.10.16.1022 Having vanquished Drona's son, we have set him free for the sake of his being a brahmana and of the respect that should be shown to our deceased preceptor.
Mbh.10.17.1033 How also could Drona's son slay the children of Drupada, all of whom were accomplished in weapons, possessed of great prowess, and capable of battling with hundreds of thousands of foes?
Mbh.10.17.1036 The holy one said, Verily, Drona's son had sought the aid of that highest of all the gods, the eternal Mahadeva.
Mbh.10.18.1113 It was not Drona's son that accomplished that act.
Mbh.13.150.12622 Rama, Vyasa, Drona's son Aswatthaman, are the other Rishis that are regarded as the foremost.
Mbh.14.60.2781 After this the remnant of the Pandava army, as it slept in the camp, was slaughtered at night time by Drona's son who was unable to put up with the slaughter of his father at the hands of Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.14.67.3006 The blade of grass inspired into a weapon of great efficacy, uplifted by Drona's son for compassing the destruction of Bhimasena, fell upon Uttara and Vijaya and myself
Mbh.14.67.3012 Hearing this intelligence, what will those heroes, vanquished by the weapon of Drona's son say?
Mbh.14.67.3016 When, O Madhava, the son of Drona sought to destroy the embryos even in the wombs of the ladies of the Pandavas, at that time, O grinder of foes, thou saidst in wrath unto Drona's son ever these words, O wretch of a Brahmana, O vilest of men, I shall disappoint thy wish.
Mbh.14.68.3046 Do thou revive this child of mine that has been consumed by the weapon of Drona's son.
Mbh.14.68.3048 Alas, what benefit has been reaped by Drona's son by accomplishing this cruel deed, viz, the destruction of the child in the womb by his Brahma-weapon.
Mbh.14.68.3052 Alas, when these have been frustrated by Drona's son, what need have I, O Kesava, to bear, the burden of life?
Mbh.15.31.1279 Know that Drona was a portion of Vrihaspati, and that Drona's son is born of a portion of Rudra.
Mbh.15.36.1489 Those that remained were slain by Drona's son at night.
