MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.2.371 This parva treats of the journey of the Pandavas towards Panchala, the acquisition of Draupadi in the midst of all the Rajas, by Arjuna, after having successfully pierced the mark; and in the ensuing fight, the defeat of Salya, Kama, and all the other crowned heads at the hands of Bhima and Arjuna of great prowess; the ascertainment by Balarama and Krishna, at the sight of these matchless exploits, that the heroes were the Pandavas, and the arrival of the brothers at the house of the potter where the Pandavas were staying; the dejection of Drupada on learning that Draupadi was to be wedded to five husbands; the wonderful story of the five Indras related in consequence; the extraordinary and divinely-ordained wedding of Draupadi; the sending of Vidura by the sons of Dhritarashtra as envoy to the Pandavas; the arrival of Vidura and his sight to Krishna; the abode of the Pandavas in Khandava-prastha, and then their rule over one half of the kingdom; the fixing of turns by the sons of Pandu, in obedience to the injunction of Narada, for connubial companionship with Krishna.
Mbh.1.2.444 In the Drona Parva, is the death of Alambusha, of Srutayus, of Jalasandha, of Shomadatta, of Virata, of the great warrior-in-chariot Drupada, of Ghatotkacha and others; in this Parva, Aswatthaman, excited beyond measure at the fall of his father in battle, discharged the terrible weapon Narayana.
Mbh.1.62.2970 Why also did the chaste Krishna, the daughter of Drupada, wronged by those wretches and able to burn them, not burn the sons of Dhritarashtra with her wrathful eyes?
Mbh.1.63.3185 And from Drupada was born a daughter Sikhandin who was afterwards transformed into a male child.
Mbh.1.67.3501 And that royal sage Drupada who on earth was a monarch, the first among all persons bearing arms, was also born of the same tribe of the celestials.
Mbh.1.67.3584 And the faultless Draupadi, slender-waisted like the wasp, was born of a portion of Sachi the queen of the celestials, in the line of Drupada.
Mbh.1.131.7017 About this time Prishata had a son born unto him, named Drupada.
Mbh.1.131.7018 And that bull among Kshatriyas, viz, Drupada, the son of Prishata, used every day to come to the hermitage of Bharadwaja to play with Drona and study in his company.
Mbh.1.131.7019 O monarch, when Prishata was dead, this Drupada of mighty arms became the king of the northern Panchalas.
Mbh.1.131.7048 Accepting them all, and thinking himself amply rewarded that best of Brahmanas then, glad at heart, set out, for the city of his friend Drupada
Mbh.1.132.7049 SECTION CXXXII Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Then, O king, the mighty son of Bharadyaja presented himself before Drupada, and addressing that monarch, said, Know me for thy friend'
Mbh.1.132.7066 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by Drupada, the mighty son of Bharadwaja became filled with wrath, and reflecting for a moment, made up his mind as to his course of action.
Mbh.1.133.7135 And, O illustrious one, approaching Drupada, I said, O tiger among men, know me for thy friend,
Mbh.1.133.7137 But Drupada, laughing in derision cast me off as if I were a vulgar fellow.
Mbh.1.133.7156 Thus insulted by Drupada, O Bhishma, I have been filled with wrath, I have come to the Kurus, desirous of obtaining intelligent and docile pupils.
Mbh.1.135.7266 No sooner was the deed done than Drona clasped Phalguna to his bosom and thought Drupada with his friends had already been vanquished in fight.
Mbh.1.140.7434 And, O king, assembling his pupils one day together, the preceptor Drona asked of them the fee, saying, Seize Drupada, the king of Panchala in battle and bring him unto me.
Mbh.1.140.7437 Those bulls among men, smiting the Panchalas on their way, laid siege to the capital of the great Drupada.
Mbh.1.140.7446 Meanwhile Drupada beholding the Kuru host, rushed forward and pouring a fierce shower of arrows around, terribly afflicted the Kuru ranks.
Mbh.1.140.7452 And careering over the field of battle like a fiery wheel, king Drupada with his arrows smote Duryodhana and Vikarna and even the mighty Karna and many other heroic princes and numberless warriors, and slaked their thirst for battle.
Mbh.1.140.7489 And standing there with perfect fearlessness he seized Drupada as Garuda seizeth a huge snake after agitating the waters of the ocean.
Mbh.1.140.7493 Addressing them Arjuna said, This best of monarchs, Drupada, is a relative of the Kuru heroes.
Mbh.1.140.7497 And, O bull of the Bharata race, the princes then, taking Drupada with them after having seized him on the field of battle along with his friends and counsellors, offered him unto Drona.
Mbh.1.140.7498 And Drona beholding Drupada thus brought under complete control, humiliated and deprived of wealth, remembered that monarch's former hostility and addressing him said, Thy kingdom and capital have been laid waste by me.
Mbh.1.140.7510 On hearing these words, Drupada answered, Thou art of noble soul and great prowess.
Mbh.1.140.7514 Thenceforth Drupada began to reside sorrowfully in the city of Kampilya within the province of Makandi on the banks of the Ganga filled with many towns and cities.
Mbh.1.140.7515 And after his defeat by Drona, Drupada also ruled the southern Panchalas up to the bank of the Charmanwati river.
Mbh.1.140.7516 And Drupada from that day was well-convinced that he could not, by Kshatriya might alone, defeat Drona, being very much his inferior in Brahma spiritual power.
Mbh.1.167.8580 And after this narration was over, that Brahmana, O Janamejaya, also spoke of the wonderful self-choice of Yajnasena's daughter, the princes of Panchala, and of the births of Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandi, and of the birth, without the intervention of a woman, of Krishna Draupadi at the great sacrifice of Drupada.
Mbh.1.167.8581 Then those bulls among men, the Pandavas, hearing of these extraordinary facts regarding that illustrious monarch Drupada, and desiring to know the details thereof, asked the Brahmana, after his narration was concluded, to satisfy their curiosity.
Mbh.1.167.8582 The Pandavas said, How, O Brahmana, did the birth of Dhrishtadyumna the son of Drupada, take place from the sacrificial fire?
Mbh.1.167.8585 And, O Brahmana, how and for whom and for what reason was the friendship between Drona and Drupada broken off'
Mbh.1.168.8596 And about the time that Drona was born, Prishata also obtained a son named Drupada.
Mbh.1.168.8598 And after Prishata's death, Drupada succeeded him on the throne.
Mbh.1.168.8607 Then the son of Bharadwaja, endued with great prowess went to king Drupada, and approaching that monarch, that tiger among men, said, Know me for thy friend'
Mbh.1.168.8608 Hearing this Drupada said, One of low birth can never be the friend of one whose lineage is pure, nor can one who is not a car-warrior have a car-warrior for his friend.
Mbh.1.168.8613 Then Drona, desirous of humiliating king Drupada, called together his disciples and addressed them, Ye sinless ones, it behoveth you, after you have been accomplished in arms, to give me as preceptorial fee something that I cherish in my heart'
Mbh.1.168.8615 After a time when the Pandavas became skilled in arms and sure aims, demanding of them his fee, he again told them these words, Drupada, the son of Prishata, is the king of Chhatravati.
Mbh.1.168.8617 Then the Pandavas, defeating Drupada in battle and taking him prisoner along with his ministers, offered him unto Drona, who beholding the vanquished monarch, said, O king, I again solicit thy friendship; and because none who is not a king deserveth to be the friend of a king, therefore, O Yajnasena, I am resolved to divide thy kingdom amongst ourselves.
Mbh.1.169.8623 SECTION CLXIX Chaitraratha Parva continued The Brahmana continued, King Drupada after this, distressed at heart, wandered among many asylums of Brahmanas in search of superior Brahmanas well-skilled in sacrificial rites.
Mbh.1.169.8635 Employed in paying homage to the feet of Upayaja, always addressing in sweet words and offering him every object of human desire, Drupada, after worshipping that Brahmana, addressed him one day, saying, O Upayaja, O Brahmana, if thou, performest those sacrificial rites by virtue of which I may obtain a son who may slay Drona, I promise thee ten thousand kine, or whatever else may be agreeable to thee, O first of Brahmanas, truly am I ready to make gifts to thee'
Mbh.1.169.8637 But Drupada without accepting this reply as final, once more began to serve and pay homage unto that Brahmana.
Mbh.1.169.8638 Then, after the expiration of a year, Upayaja, that first of Brahmanas, O monarch, addressing Drupada in sweet tone, said, My elder brother Yaja, one day, while wandering through the deep woods, took up a fruit that had fallen upon a spot the purity of which he cared not to enquire about.
Mbh.1.169.8646 Hearing these words of Upayaja, king Drupada, though entertaining a low opinion of Yaja, nevertheless went to his abode.
Mbh.1.169.8647 Worshipping Yaja who was still worthy of homage, Drupada said unto him, O master, perform thou spiritual offices for me and I will give thee eighty thousand kine!
Mbh.1.169.8661 Hearing these words of Drupada, Yaja said, So be it'
Mbh.1.169.8665 Then the great ascetic Upayaja spoke unto king Drupada of everything required for the grand sacrifice by aid of fire from which the king was to obtain offspring.
Mbh.1.169.8667 The Brahmana continued, Then king Drupada, impelled by the desire of obtaining a son who was to slay Drona, began, for the success of his wish, to make the necessary preparations.
Mbh.1.169.8695 Then the Brahmanas present there, their expectations fully gratified, bestowed names upon the new-born pair, Let this son of king Drupada, they said, be called Dhrishtadyumna, because of his excessive audacity and because of his being born like Dyumna with a natural mail and weapon'
Mbh.1.169.8697 The Brahmana continued, Thus were born those twins of the great sacrifice of Drupada.
Mbh.1.169.8698 And the great Drona, bringing the Panchala prince into his own abode, taught him all weapons in requital of half the kingdom he had formerly taken from Drupada.
Mbh.1.171.8713 Then, O king, Kunti with her sons saluted the Brahmana in whose house they had dwelt and set out for the delightful town of the illustrious Drupada'
Mbh.1.171.8733 Ye princes of Bharata's line, that damsel of celestial beauty hath been born in the line of Drupada.
Mbh.1.185.9356 The Brahmanas then said, Go ye this very day to the abode of Drupada in the country of the Panchalas.
Mbh.1.185.9361 The illustrious Yajnasena, otherwise called Drupada, had a daughter risen from the centre of the sacrificial altar.
Mbh.1.186.9375 SECTION CLXXXVII Swayamvara Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Thus addressed by the Brahmanas, the Pandavas, O Janamejaya, proceeded towards the country of the southern Panchalas ruled over by the king Drupada.
Mbh.1.186.9386 And Drupada said, He that will string this bow and with these well-adorned arrows shoot the mark above the machine shall obtain my daughter'
Mbh.1.186.9387 Vaisampayana continued, With these words king Drupada proclaimed the Swayamvara.
Mbh.1.186.9392 And the monarchs who came there were all received with reverence by the illustrious Drupada.
Mbh.1.186.9404 And in those seven-storied houses of various sizes dwelt the monarchs invited by Drupada whose persons were adorned with every ornament and who were possessed with the desire of excelling one another.
Mbh.1.186.9411 And it lasted, O king, several days, till on the sixteenth day when it was at its full, the daughter of Drupada, O thou bull of the Bharata race, having washed herself clean entered the amphitheatre, richly attired and adorned with every ornament and bearing in her hand a dish of gold whereon were the usual offerings of Arghya and a garland of flowers.
Mbh.1.188.9428 And the Kshatriyas assembled in that amphitheatre, each desirous of winning the daughter of Drupada, looked like the celestial of old standing round Uma, the daughter of the King of mountains.
Mbh.1.189.9482 And beholding Arjuna, Drupada, that slayer of foes, was filled with joy.
Mbh.1.190.9488 SECTION CLXLI Swayamvara Parva continued Vaisampayana said, When the king Drupada expressed his desire of bestowing his daughter on that Brahmana who had shot the mark, all those monarchs who had been invited to the Swayamvara, looking at one another, were suddenly filled with wrath.
Mbh.1.190.9489 And they said, Passing us by and treating the assembled monarchs as straw this Drupada desireth to bestow his daughter, that first of women, on a Brahmana!
Mbh.1.190.9501 Having addressed one another thus, those tigers among monarchs endued with arms like unto spiked iron maces, took up their weapons and rushed at Drupada to slay him then and there.
Mbh.1.190.9502 And Drupada beholding those monarchs all at once rushing towards him in anger with bows and arrows, sought, from fear, the protection of the Brahmanas.
Mbh.1.193.9620 Then the kind-hearted Kunti addressing the daughter of Drupada said, O amiable one, take thou first a portion from this and devote it to the gods and give it away to Brahmanas, and feed those that desire to eat and give unto those who have become our guests.
Mbh.1.193.9635 When morning came, the prince Dhristadyumna set out from his place of concealment with great haste in order to report to Drupada in detail all that had happened at the potter's abode and all that he had heard those heroes speak amongst themselves during the night.
Mbh.1.194.9667 Hearing these words of his son, king Drupada became exceedingly glad, and he sent unto them his priest directing him to ascertain who they were and whether they were the sons of the illustrious Pandu.
Mbh.1.194.9668 Thus directed, the king's priest went unto them and applauding them all, delivered the king's message duly, saying, Ye who are worthy of preference in everything, the boon-giving king of the earth, Drupada, is desirous of ascertaining who ye are.
Mbh.1.194.9671 King Pandu was the dear friend of Drupada and was regarded by him as his counterself.
Mbh.1.194.9672 And Drupada had all along cherished the desire of bestowing this daughter of his upon Pandu as his daughter-in-law.
Mbh.1.194.9673 Ye heroes of features perfectly faultless, king Drupada hath all along cherished this desire in his heart that Arjuna of strong and long arms might wed this daughter of his according to the ordinance.
Mbh.1.194.9674 If that hath become possible, nothing could be better; nothing more beneficial; nothing more conducive to fame and virtue, so far as Drupada is concerned'
Mbh.1.194.9683 King Drupada, therefore, hath nothing now to say in regard to the race, tribe, family and disposition of him who hath performed that feat.
Mbh.1.194.9687 The desire that king Drupada hath all along cherished will be accomplished for his handsome princess who beareth, I think, every auspicious mark.
Mbh.1.195.9693 SECTION CLXLVI Vaivahika Parva continued Vaisampayana continued, The messenger said, King Drupada hath, in view of his daughter's nuptials prepared a good feast for the bride-groom's party.
Mbh.1.195.9700 Meanwhile, O Bharata, hearing from his priest the words that Yudhishthira had said, king Drupada, in order to ascertain the order to which those heroes belonged, kept ready a large collection of articles required by the ordinance for the wedding of each of the four orders.
Mbh.1.195.9714 Beholding this, Drupada's son and Drupada himself, along with all his chief ministers of state, understanding the sons of Kunti to be all of royal blood became exceedingly glad
Mbh.1.196.9723 Hearing these words of Drupada, Yudhishthira answered, saying Be not cheerless, O king; let joy fill thy heart!
Mbh.1.196.9739 Hearing everything that the son of Kunti said, king Drupada censured Dhritarashtra, that ruler of men.
Mbh.1.196.9743 Then king Drupada with his sons, assured by all that had happened, approaching Yudhishthira, said, O thou of mighty arms, let the Kuru prince Arjuna take with due rites, the hand of my daughter on this auspicious day, and let him, therefore, perform the usual initiatory rites of marriage'
Mbh.1.196.9744 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words of Drupada, the virtuous king Yudhishthira replied, saying, O great king, I also shall have to marry'
Mbh.1.196.9745 Hearing him, Drupada said, If it pleaseth thee, take thou the hand of my daughter thyself with due rites.
Mbh.1.196.9755 Drupada answered, O scion of Kuru's race, it hath been directed that one man may have many wives.
Mbh.1.196.9768 Drupada said, O son of Kunti thy mother, and my son Dhrishtadyumna and thyself, settle amongst yourselves as to what should be done.
Mbh.1.197.9780 Hearing these words of the Rishi, Drupada spoke first, saying, The practice is sinful in my opinion, being opposed to both usage and the Vedas.
Mbh.1.197.9786 After Drupada had ceased, Dhrishtadyumna spoke, saying O bull amongst Brahmanas, O thou of ascetic wealth, how can, O Brahmana, the elder brother, if he is of a good disposition, approach the wife of his younger brother?
Mbh.1.197.9808 The Pandavas and Kunti and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race sat there, waiting for the return of Vyasa and Drupada.
Mbh.1.198.9886 And observing the Pandavas in the forms of those Indras of old, and Arjuna also in the form of Indra sprung from Sakra himself, king Drupada was highly pleased.
Mbh.1.198.9900 Vyasa continued, O Drupada, this thy daughter of celestial beauty is that maiden.
Mbh.1.198.9905 Having listened to all this, O king Drupada, do what thou desirest
Mbh.1.199.9906 SECTION CC Vaivahika Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Drupada, on hearing this, observed, O great Rishi, it was only when I had not heard this from thee that I had sought to act in the way I told thee of.
Mbh.1.199.9933 After the weddings were over, king Drupada gave unto those mighty car-warriors diverse kinds of excellent wealth.
Mbh.1.200.9938 The sons of Pandu endued with great strength, after their wedding were over, and after they had obtained Krishna like unto a second Sri along with great wealth, passed their days in joy and happiness, like so many Indras, in the capital of the king of the Panchalas SECTION CCI Vaivahika Parva continued Vaisampayana said, King Drupada, after his alliance with the Pandavas, had all his fears dispelled.
Mbh.1.201.9975 Beholding the mighty sons of Pritha, escaped from the burning house of lac and allied with Drupada, and thinking of Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandin and the other sons of Drupada all accomplished in fight, they were struck with fear and overcome with despair.
Mbh.1.201.9983 It was then that Vidura told the monarch that Draupadi had chosen the Pandavas for her lords, and that those heroes were all alive and at peace, and that they had been received with great respect by king Drupada.
Mbh.1.201.9984 And he also informed Dhritarashtra that the Pandavas had been united with the many relatives and friends of Drupada, each owning large armies, and with many others who had come to that self-choice.
Mbh.1.201.9991 Who amongst monarchs in prosperity or adversity would not like to have Drupada with his relatives as an ally'
Mbh.1.202.10008 Or, let king Drupada and his sons, and all his ministers of state, be plied with presents of large wealth, so that they may abandon the cause of Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti.
Mbh.1.202.10028 Before their confidence in king Drupada, that bull amongst kings, is established we may succeed, O monarch, to encounter them.
Mbh.1.202.10029 But after their confidence hath been established in Drupada, we are sure to fail.
Mbh.1.203.10059 And, O king, exert thy prowess before he of the Vrishni race Krishna cometh with the Yadava host into the city of Drupada, carrying everything before him, to restore the Pandavas to their paternal kingdom.
Mbh.1.203.10065 Let us, therefore, O monarch, with our large army consisting of four kinds of forces, grind Drupada without loss of time, and bring hither the Pandavas.
Mbh.1.205.10111 Send, O Bharata, unto Drupada without loss of time some messenger of agreeable speech, carrying with him a large treasure for the Pandavas.
Mbh.1.205.10112 And let the man go unto Drupada carrying costly presents for both the bridegrooms and the bride, and let him speak unto that monarch of thy increase of power and dignity arising from this new alliance with him.
Mbh.1.205.10114 Let him say this repeatedly unto Drupada and Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.1.205.10118 And let, O bull of Bharata's race, proper presents be given unto all the sons of Drupada.
Mbh.1.205.10120 After the heroes will have been permitted by Drupada, to come hither, let Duhsasana and Vikarna go out with a handsome train to receive them.
Mbh.1.206.10179 They who have Drupada for their father-in-law, and Drupada's sons, the heroic brothers, viz, Dhristadyumna and others of Prishata's race for their brothers-in-law, are certainly invincible.
Mbh.1.206.10184 We had formerly warred with king Drupada; if we can now secure him as an ally, it will strengthen our party.
Mbh.1.207.10198 From sheer good fortune the sons of Pritha are alive; and from good fortune alone those mighty car-warriors have obtained the daughter of Drupada.
Mbh.1.207.10204 Drupada received Vidura in proper form and they both enquired after each other's welfare.
Mbh.1.207.10209 He then gave, O monarch, unto the Pandavas and Kunti and Draupadi, and unto Drupada and Drupada's sons, the gems and various kinds of wealth that the Kauravas had sent through him.
Mbh.1.207.10210 Possessed of immeasurable intelligence, the modest Vidura then, in the presence of the Pandavas and Keshava, addressed the well-behaved Drupada thus: With thy ministers and sons, O monarch, listen to what I say.
Mbh.1.208.10225 SECTION CCIX Viduragamana Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Hearing these words of Vidura, Drupada said, It is even so as thou, O Vidura of great wisdom, hast said.
Mbh.1.208.10234 But we should all abide by the opinion of king Drupada who is conversant with every rule of morality'
Mbh.1.208.10235 Drupada then spoke, I certainly agree with what this foremost of men, thinketh, having regard to the circumstances.
Mbh.1.208.10238 Vaisampayana continued, Commanded by the illustrious Drupada, the Pandavas, then, O king, and Krishna and Vidura, taking with them Krishna, the daughter of Drupada, and the renowned Kunti, journeyed towards the city called after the elephant, stopping at various places along the way for purposes of pleasure and enjoyment.
Mbh.2.36.1504 Or, if thou regardest Vasudeva as your well-wisher and supporter, here is Drupada; how then can Madhava deserve the first worship?
Mbh.2.43.1732 Passing over Bhishmaka of abundant energy, and king Dantavakra, and Bhagadatta known for his innumerable sacrificial stakes, and Jayatsena the king of the Magadha, and Virata and Drupada, and Sakuni and Vrihadvala, and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avant Pandya, Sweta Uttama Sankhya of great prosperity, the proud Vrishasena, the powerful Ekalavya, and the great charioteer Kalinga of abundant energy, why dost thou praise Kesava?
Mbh.2.47.1935 They have obtained Draupadi for wife and Drupada with his sons as also Vasudeva of great prowess as allies, capable of helping them in subjugating the whole world.
Mbh.2.47.1951 Sakuni replied, Dhananjaya and Vasudeva, Bhimasena and Yudhishthira, Nakula and Sahadeva and Drupada with his sons, these cannot be vanquished in battle by even the celestials, for they are all great warriors wielding the largest bows, accomplished in weapons, and delighting in battle.
Mbh.2.66.2730 The Suta, then, obedient to his commands, but terrified at the possible wrath of the daughter of Drupada, disregarding his reputation for intelligence, once again said to those that were in the assembly, what shall I say unto Krishna'
Mbh.2.66.2815 Ye kings, answer ye the question that hath been asked by this blessed daughter of king Drupada, and declare after reflection on which side each of ye is'
Mbh.2.66.2833 They all regard the daughter of Drupada to have been properly won.
Mbh.2.69.2999 Alas, doth not the son of Pritha regards life, prowess and manhood as of no use that he offereth this daughter of Drupada, the king of Panchala, in the presence of all this assembly, as a stake at dice
Mbh.2.78.3390 I had formerly deprived Drupada of his kingdom in a friendly dispute.
Mbh.2.78.3392 Aided by the ascetic power of Yaja and Upayaja, Drupada obtained from the sacrificial fire a son named Dhrishtadyumna and a daughter, viz, the faultless Krishna, both risen from the sacrificial platform.
Mbh.2.79.3424 Who else than Duryodhana, that false player of dice could bring into the assembly, with insults, the daughter of Drupada, endued with beauty and intelligence, and conversant with every rule of morality and duty, and sprung not from any woman's womb but from the sacred fire?
Mbh.2.79.3430 Dhritarashtra said, O Sanjaya, the glances of the distressed daughter of Drupada might consume the whole earth.
Mbh.3.4.306 And let Dussasana, in open court, ask forgiveness of Bhimasena and of the daughter of Drupada also.
Mbh.3.10.497 Related to Vasudeva and having the sons of king Drupada as their brothers-in-law, who that is subject to decrepitude and death would undertake to cope with them in battle?
Mbh.3.12.721 And having slain that fierce cannibal, Bhima that foremost of smiters, went with all his brothers to the capital of Drupada.
Mbh.3.27.1276 Why also, O king, dost thou pardon the foe at sight of myself in exile who, born in the race of Drupada and, therefore, the sister of Dhrishtadyumna, am the daughter-in-law of the illustrious Pandu and the devoted wife of heroes?
Mbh.3.29.1355 O daughter of Drupada, reflecting upon all this, my anger is not excited One that acteth not against a man whose wrath hath been up, rescueth himself as also others from great fear.
Mbh.3.29.1359 Therefore, O daughter of Drupada, it hath been said that a weak man should always suppress his wrath.
Mbh.3.31.1505 O daughter of Drupada, religion is the only raft for those desirous of going to heaven, like a ship to merchants desirous of crossing the ocean.
Mbh.3.35.1840 How, O son of Pritha, will Krishna, the daughter of Drupada, a princess and mother of heroes, of virtuous deeds and known over all the world, live unknown?
Mbh.3.80.3935 After Nakula's lamentations, Sahadeva said, He who having vanquished mighty warriors in battle won wealth and virgins and brought them unto the king on the occasion of the great Rajasuya sacrifice, that hero of immeasurable splendour who having vanquished single-handed the assembled Yadavas in battle, ravished Subhadra with the consent of Vasudeva, he, who having invaded the dominion of the illustrious Drupada gave, O Bharata, unto the preceptor Drona his tuition fee, beholding, O king, that Jishnu's bed of grass empty in our asylum, my heart refuses consolation.
Mbh.3.87.4774 O king, listen to me as I speak, thyself with the daughter of Drupada and thy brothers, wilt, O lord of men, be relieved from grief.
Mbh.3.114.5883 Vaisampayana said, Then all the sons of Pandu and likewise the daughter of Drupada, all of whom were the favoured of Fate, descended to the river Vaitarani, and made libations to the names of their fathers'
Mbh.3.118.6074 And when the Vrishnis beheld that the sons of Pandu lay down on the ground, their bodies besmeared all over with dirt and when they beheld the daughter of Drupada in a sad state, their grief was great and they could not refrain from breaking out in loud lamentations.
Mbh.3.120.6154 Neither for the sake of pleasure, nor from fear, nor from covetousness, would Yudhishthira ever renounce the rules of the caste; nor would these two heroes, who are mighty, when mounted on a car, Bhima and Arjuna; nor the twin brothers, nor Krishna, the daughter of Drupada.
Mbh.3.182.9010 And he embraced Arjuna of the curly hair; and spoke words of solace to the daughter of Drupada.
Mbh.3.182.9012 And so too Satyabhama also, the beloved consort of Krishna, embraced the daughter of Drupada, the beloved wife of the sons of Pandu.
Mbh.3.182.9029 Your father and your uterine brothers proffer them a kingdom and territories; but the boys find no joy in the house of Drupada, or in that of their maternal uncles.
Mbh.3.182.9037 O daughter of Drupada!
Mbh.3.182.9056 And when that wisest saint, thus honoured, took his seat in a friendly way, Krishna addressed him, in accordance with the views of the Brahmanas and of Pandu's sons, thus, The sons of Pandu, and the Brahmanas assembled here, and the daughter of Drupada, and Satyabhama, likewise myself, are all anxious to hear your most excellent words, O Markandeya!
Mbh.3.231.11731 And the slender-waisted Satyabhama, the favourite wife of Krishna and the daughter of Satrajit, then asked Draupadi in private, saying, By what behaviour is it, O daughter of Drupada, that thou art able to rule the sons of Pandu, those heroes endued with strength and beauty and like unto the Lokapalas themselves?
Mbh.3.231.11737 When the celebrated Satyabhama, having said this, ceased, the chaste and blessed daughter of Drupada answered her, saying, Thou askedest me, O Satyabhama, of the practices of women that are wicked.
Mbh.3.233.11822 And Satyabhama then, having embraced the daughter of Drupada, addressed her in these cordial words expressive of her feelings towards her: O Krishna, let there be no anxiety, no grief, for thee!
Mbh.3.233.11826 And, O daughter of Drupada, thou shalt certainly behold the earth ruled by Yudhishthira after the sons of Dhritarashtra have been slain and the deeds of their hostility avenged!
Mbh.3.235.11911 Let the daughter of Drupada reproach herself and her life, divested as she is of wealth, for the sorrow that she will feel upon beholding thy wife decked in ornaments will be far greater than what she had felt in the midst of the assembly when Dussasana had dragged her there
Mbh.3.236.11923 What joy can be greater, O Karna, that will be mine upon beholding the daughter of Drupada dressed in red rags in the woods?
Mbh.3.238.11996 And, O thou best of the Kuru race, King Yudhishthira the just, endued with high intelligence, was then, O monarch, residing in the vicinity of that lake at will and celebrating with his wedded wife, the daughter of Drupada, the diurnal sacrifice called Rajarshi, according to the ordinance sanctioned for the celestials and persons living in the wilderness.
Mbh.3.244.12158 They came hither for mocking you and the illustrious daughter of Drupada.
Mbh.3.252.12440 SECTION CCLII Vaisampayana continued, Then, O bull among the Bharatas, that mighty bowman, Karna, surrounded by a large army, besieged the beautiful city of Drupada.
Mbh.3.252.12441 And he, after a hard conflict, brought the hero under subjection, and, O best of monarchs, made Drupada contribute silver and gold and gems, and also pay tribute.
Mbh.3.252.12442 And, O foremost of kings, having subdued him, Karna brought under subjection those princes that were under him Drupada and made them pay tribute.
Mbh.3.264.12893 I am the daughter of king Drupada, and people know me by the name of Krishna, and I have accepted as my husbands, five persons of whom you may have heard while they were living at Kahandavaprastha.
Mbh.3.264.12898 Having addressed Saivya's son in this way, the daughter of Drupada, with face beautiful as the moon, remembering well her husband's character for hospitality, entered her spacious cottage
Mbh.3.265.12905 Kotika replied, This lady is the famous princess Krishna, the daughter of Drupada, and the celebrated wife of the five sons of Pandu.
Mbh.3.266.12933 SECTION CCLXVI Vaisampayana said, The daughter of Drupada, though naturally handsome, was suffused with crimson arising from a fit of anger.
Mbh.3.266.12949 Therefore, do thou, O daughter of Drupada, ride this elephant or this chariot quickly, for thou canst not baffle us with thy words alone; or, speaking less boastfully, seek thou the mercy of the king of the Sauviras'
Mbh.3.271.13222 This lady is the daughter of Drupada; she hath issued from the sacrificial altar and hath not been begotten of the flesh; and she is highly blessed and is also the daughter-in-law of the illustrious Pandu.
Mbh.3.271.13225 The daughter of Drupada hath never committed any sinful act, nor, hath she done anything that is not commendable: on the contrary, she hath assiduously practised the highest virtues towards Brahmanas.
Mbh.3.290.14178 Behold, this Krishna, the daughter of Drupada, forcibly abducted by the wicked-minded Saindhava from pride of strength and energy, hath been brought back by these mighty warriors after achieving terrible feats!
Mbh.3.291.14187 SECTION CCLXLI Pativrata-mahatmya Parva Yudhishthira said, O mighty sage, I do not so much grieve for myself or these my brothers or the loss of my kingdom as I do for this daughter of Drupada.
Mbh.3.291.14190 Hast thou even seen or heard of any chaste and exalted lady that resembleth this daughter of Drupada
Mbh.3.297.14698 And like that gentle lady Savitri, the auspicious daughter of Drupada, endued with excellent character, will rescue you all
Mbh.4.3.87 Unacquainted as she is with any kind of womanly work, what office will Krishna, the daughter of Drupada, perform?
Mbh.4.4.107 Let our priest, accompanied by charioteers and cooks, repair to the abode of Drupada, and there maintain our Agnihotra fires.
Mbh.4.14.531 And it came to pass that as the year was about to expire, the redoubtable Kichaka, the Commander of Virata's forces, chanced to behold the daughter of Drupada.
Mbh.4.14.588 Addressed in these accursed words by Kichaka, that chaste daughter of Drupada answered him thus reprovingly, Do not, O son of a Suta, act so foolishly and do not throw away thy life.
Mbh.4.17.708 And possessed of great intelligence, the daughter of Drupada entered her husband's quarters, saying, How canst thou sleep while that wretched commander of Virata's forces, who is my foe, yet liveth, having perpetrated today that foul act'
Mbh.4.20.825 Queen of the sons of Pandu and daughter of Drupada, who else, save myself, would wish to live, having fallen into such a plight?
Mbh.4.21.918 And having abundantly consoled that slender-waisted daughter of Drupada by means of words fraught with grave reason and sense, he wiped with his hands her face flooded with tears.
Mbh.4.22.1018 And having accomplished that difficult task so highly agreeable to Krishna, having indeed slain Kichaka and thereby pacified his wrath, Bhima bade farewell to Krishna, the daughter of Drupada, and quickly went back to the kitchen.
Mbh.4.72.2814 And the mighty Drupada, also with the heroic sons of Draupadi and the unvanquished Sikhandin, and that foremost of wielder of weapons, the invincible Dhrishtadyumna came there with another Akshauhini of troops.
Mbh.5.1.5 And those mighty monarchs of men all came to that place, And on the seats in front sat the two kings Virata and Drupada.
Mbh.5.1.8 And side by side with the king of the Matsya sat Krishna and Yudhishthira, and all the sons of king Drupada, and Bhima and Arjuna, and the two sons of Madri, and Pradyumna and Samva, both valiant in battle, and Abhimanyu with Virata's sons.
Mbh.5.3.84 Who would approach Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Drupada, or these five sons of the Pandavas who have added lustre to Draupadi's name, rivalling their fathers in valour, equal to them in every respect and full of martial pride, or him of the powerful bow, Subhadra's son, irresistible by even the gods themselves; or Gada, or Pradyumna, or Samva, resembling Yama or the thunderbolt or fire?
Mbh.5.4.90 SECTION IV Drupada said, O mighty-armed one, it will, without doubt, be even as thou hast said!
Mbh.5.5.124 And Virata and his relatives sent word to all the monarchs, and king Drupada also did the same.
Mbh.5.6.132 SECTION VI Drupada said, Of beings those that are endowed with life are superior.
Mbh.5.6.162 Vaisampayana continued, Thus instructed by the magnanimous Drupada, the virtuous priest set out for Hastinapura the city called after the elephant.
Mbh.5.19.824 And the army of Drupada, also was beautified by valiant soldiers who had come from various lands, and also by his mighty sons.
Mbh.5.23.978 I hope princess Krishna also, the daughter of Drupada, is well, she who never swerves from the path of truth, that lady of great energy, that wife of heroes.
Mbh.5.29.1272 That those Kurus, at whose head stood Bhishma did not interfere when the beloved wife of the sons of Pandu, daughter of Drupada, of fare fame, pure life, and conduct worthy of praise, was seized, while weeping, by that slave of lust.
Mbh.5.29.1282 Then in that hall, while Krishna stood, the charioteer's son addressed her in the presence of her fathers-in-law saying, O Daughter of Drupada thou hast no refuge.
Mbh.5.48.2696 When those veteran car-warriors Virata and Drupada will assail, at the head of their respective divisions, the sons of Dhritarashtra and their ranks, then will Duryodhana repent for this war.
Mbh.5.48.2697 When Drupada, skilled in weapons, and seated on his car, desirous of plucking the heads of youthful warriors, will wrathfully strike them off with arrows shot from his bow, then will the son of Dhritarashtra repent for this war.
Mbh.5.50.2881 And Drupada too, possessed of great might, and followed by a large force, and reckless of his life, is resolved to fight for the Pandavas.
Mbh.5.57.3149 And Drupada, the king of the Panchalas, surrounded by his ten heroic sons, Satyajit and others, headed by Dhrishtadyumna, and well-protected by Sikhandin, and having furnished his soldiers with every necessary thing, hath come there with a full Akshauhini, desirous of honouring Yudhishthira.
Mbh.5.57.3175 Those that have Yudhishthira for their leader, the slayer of Madhu for their protector, the heroic Savyasachin and Vrikodara for their warriors, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata, and Satyaki, and Drupada, and Dhrishtaketu with his son, and Uttamaujas, and the unconquerable Yudhamanyu of the Panchalas, and Sikhandin, and Kshatradeva, and Uttara, the son of Virata, and Kasayas, the Chedis, the Matsyas, the Srinjayas, Vabhru the son of Virata, the Panchalas, and the Prabhadrakas, for fighting for them, those, indeed, from whom Indra himself cannot, if they are unwilling, snatch this earth, those heroes, cool and steady, in fight, who can split the very mountains, alas, it is with them that are endued with every virtue and possessed of superhuman prowess that this wicked son of mine, O Sanjaya, desireth to fight, disregarding me even though I am crying myself hoarse'
Mbh.5.64.3408 Drupada, and the king of Matsyas, and Dhananjaya, when angry, will, like flames of fire urged by the wind, leave no remnant of thy army.
Mbh.5.80.3882 Virata with his sons, Drupada with his allies, and Dhrishtadyumna, O Madhava, and the ruler of Kasi of great prowess and Dhrishtaketu the lord of the Chedis?
Mbh.5.82.3919 I am the daughter of king Drupada, risen from the sacrificial alter.
Mbh.5.83.3983 And the valiant Chekitana and Dhrishtaketu, the ruler of the Chedis, and Drupada and the king of Kasi and that mighty car-warrior Sikhandin, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Virata with his sons, and the princes of Kekaya also, all these Kshatriyas followed that bull of the Kshatriya race to honour him.
Mbh.5.90.4198 More than all my sons, O Janardana, is the daughter of Drupada dear to me.
Mbh.5.151.6761 They are Drupada, and Virata, and Dhristadyumna, and Sikhandin, and Satyaki, Chekitana, and Bhimasena of great energy.
Mbh.5.151.6770 Vaisampayana continued, After Sahadeva had said this, eloquent Nakula then said these words, He that in years, in knowledge of scriptures, in perseverance, in family and birth, is respectable; he that is endued with modesty, strength, and prosperity; he that is well-versed in all branches of learning; he that studied the science of weapons with the sage Bharadwaja; he, who is irresistible and firmly devoted to truth; he that always challenges Drona and mighty Bhishma; he that belongs to one of the foremost of royal houses; he that is a famous leader of hosts; he that resembles a tree of hundred branches in consequence of sons and grandsons that surround him; that king, who, with his wife, performed, moved by wrath, the austerest of penances for the destruction of Drona; that hero, who is an ornament of assemblies; that bull among monarchs who always cherishes us like a father; that father-in-law of ours, Drupada, should be our generalissimo.
Mbh.5.151.6777 Bhima then said, That son of Drupada, Sikhandin, who is born for the destruction of Bhishma, as is said, O king, by the sages and Siddhas assembled together, whose form on the field of battle, while displaying celestial weapons, will be seen by men to resemble that of the illustrious Rama himself, I see not, O king, the person who is able to pierce with weapons that Sikhandin, when he is stationed for battle on his car, accoutred in mail.
Mbh.5.151.6797 Indeed, the sons of Dhritarashtra will never be able to keep their ground when they will behold Dhananjaya with Yuyudhana as his second, and Abhimanyu, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Virata, and Drupada, and the other kings of fierce prowess, all lords of Akshauhinis.
Mbh.5.154.6837 SECTION CLIV Janamejaya said, Hearing that Yudhishthira had, with his troops marched from the desire of battle and encamped on Kurukshetra, protected by Vasudeva, and aided by Virata and Drupada with their sons, and surrounded by the Kekayas, the Vrishnis, and other kings by hundreds, and watched over by numerous mighty car-warriors, like the great Indra himself by the Adityas, what measures were concerted by king Duryodhana?
Mbh.5.154.6839 The son of Pandu, with Vasudeva and Virata and Drupada and Dhrishtadyumna, the Panchala prince and that mighty car-warrior Sikhandin and powerful Yudhamanyu, incapable of being resisted by the very gods, might trouble the deities themselves in battle with Indra at their head.
Mbh.5.154.6847 Virata and Drupada whom I had waged hostilities with, obedient to Vasudeva, both of them have become the leaders of Yudhishthira's host.
Mbh.5.158.6991 Vaisampayana continued, Summoning then those warriors eager for battle, viz, Drupada and Virata, and that bull of Sini's race, and Dhrishtadyumna the prince of Panchala, and king Dhrishtaketu, and prince Shikhandi of Panchala, and Sahadeva, the ruler of the Magadhas, Yudhishthira duly appointed them in the command of his seven divisions.
Mbh.5.158.7000 And that chastiser of foes, Halayudha, in return, accosting them all with Vasudeva at their head, and saluting respectfully both Virata and Drupada who were senior in years, sat down on the same seat with Yudhishthira.
Mbh.5.161.7181 Say next, from me, unto both Virata and Drupada, these words, viz, Since the beginning of the creation, slaves, endued even with great accomplishments, have never been able to fully understand their masters.
Mbh.5.162.7269 Then in the midst and presence of the illustrious and high-souled Pandavas, of the Srinjayas, and Krishna possessed of great fame, of Drupada with his sons, of Virata, and of all monarchs, Uluka said these words'
Mbh.5.163.7336 Then in the midst and presence of all the Srinjayas, of Krishna possessed of great fame, of Drupada with his sons, of Virata, and all the kings there assembled, Uluka once more repeated unto Arjuna the words he had said, provoking him still further thereby, like one annoying wrathful snake of virulent poison by means of a stake.
Mbh.5.164.7459 Then Virata and Drupada, both venerable in years, said these words unto Uluka, It is even our wish that we become slaves of a virtuous person!
Mbh.5.164.7474 And he also faithfully communicated unto Dhritarashtra's son the words of Vasudeva, of Bhima, of king Yudhishthira the Just, of Nakula and Virata and Drupada, O Bharata and the words of Sahadeva and Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandin, and the words also that were spoken subsequently by Kesava and Arjuna.
Mbh.5.171.7732 Invincible in battle, those bulls among men, old Virata and old Drupada, both endued with great prowess, are, in my judgment, both Maharathas.
Mbh.5.190.8541 Born in the race of Drupada, thou shalt become a Maharatha.
Mbh.5.191.8548 Bhishma said, O great king, the eldest and beloved queen of king Drupada was, O monarch, childless at first.
Mbh.5.191.8549 During those years, king Drupada, O monarch, paid his adoration to the god Sankara for the sake of offspring, resolving in his mind to compass my destruction and practising the austerest of penances.
Mbh.5.191.8559 Then that lady of great energy, the queen of king Drupada, when her season came, observing all the regulations about purity, approached Drupada.
Mbh.5.191.8562 And, O son of Kuru's race, the mighty-armed king Drupada, from paternal affection, attended to every comfort of that dear wife of his.
Mbh.5.191.8563 And, O Kaurava, the wife of that lord of earth, the royal Drupada, who was childless, had all her wishes gratified.
Mbh.5.191.8564 And in due time, O monarch, that goddess, the queen of Drupada, gave birth to a daughter of great beauty.
Mbh.5.191.8565 Thereupon, the strong-minded wife of that king, the childless Drupada, gave out, O monarch, that the child she had brought forth was a son.
Mbh.5.191.8566 And then king Drupada, O ruler of men, caused all the rites prescribed for a male child to be performed in respect of that misrepresented daughter, as if she were really a son.
Mbh.5.191.8570 And, O king, Drupada caused all the rites of infancy, prescribed for a son, to be performed in respect of that child, and he bestowed the name of Sikhandin on her.
Mbh.5.192.8572 SECTION CXCII Bhishma said, Drupada, O chastiser of foes, bestowed great attention on everything in connection with that daughter of his, teaching her writing and painting and all the arts.
Mbh.5.192.8576 And Drupada said, This daughter of mine that so enhanceth my woe, hath attained her youth.
Mbh.5.192.8585 After this, the royal Drupada, that lion among kings, having enquired about the purity of descent, of all the rulers of the earth, selected the daughter of the king of Dasarnakas for wife to Sikhandin.
Mbh.5.192.8589 And sometimes after the wedding, the daughter of Hiranyavarman, O best of monarchs, attained her youth while the daughter of Drupada also had attained hers.
Mbh.5.192.8598 And the messenger of king Hiranyavarman, having alone approached Drupada, took him aside and said unto him in private, The king of the Dasarnakas, O monarch, deceived by thee and enraged, O sinless one, at the insult thou hast offered him, hath said these words unto thee, Thou hast humiliated me!
Mbh.5.193.8603 SECTION CXCIII Bhishma said, Thus addressed, O king, by that messenger, king Drupada, like a thief caught in the act, could not speak.
Mbh.5.193.8607 Then, that best of kings, having mustered a large army, resolved, O Bharata, to march against Drupada.
Mbh.5.193.8609 And it was settled among those high-souled kings that if, O monarch, Sikhandin was really a daughter, they should bind the ruler of the Panchalas and drag him from his city, and installing another king over the Panchalas they should slay Drupada with Sikhandin.
Mbh.5.193.8611 Bhishma continued, King Drupada was not naturally courageous.
Mbh.5.193.8613 Sending his envoys again to the ruler of the Dasarnakas, king Drupada, afflicted with grief, approached his wife and took counsel with her.
Mbh.5.194.8637 Hearing all this, Drupada, otherwise called Yajnasena, informed all his counsellors of these facts.
Mbh.5.194.8660 Entering that mansion, Sikhandini, the daughter of Drupada, O king, began to reduce herself by foregoing all food for many days.
Mbh.5.195.8694 And he represented unto Drupada everything that had happened.
Mbh.5.195.8695 And Drupada, bearing it all became highly glad.
Mbh.5.195.8699 The king of the Dasarnakas meanwhile, filled with sorrow and grief, suddenly approached Drupada, the ruler of the Panchalas.
Mbh.5.195.8708 Having, in the midst of his counsellors, been made by that priest to hear those words fraught with censure and uttered by the ruler of the Dasarnakas, king Drupada then, O chief of Bharata's race, assuming a mild behaviour from motives of friendship, said, The reply to these words of my brother that thou hast said unto me, O Brahmana, will be carried to that monarch by my envoy'
Mbh.5.195.8709 And king Drupada then, sent unto the high-souled Hiranyavarman a Brahmana learned in the Vedas as his envoy.
Mbh.5.195.8710 And that envoy, going unto king Hiranyavarman, the ruler of the Dasarnakas, said unto him, O monarch, the word that Drupada had entrusted him with'
Mbh.5.195.8715 Then the king of the Dasarnakas, having heard the words of Drupada, was filled with sorrow and despatched a number of young ladies of great beauty for ascertaining whether Sikhandin was a male or female.
Mbh.5.195.8717 Hearing that testimony, the ruler of the Dasarnakas was filled with great joy, and wending then unto his brother Drupada, passed a few days with him in joy.
Mbh.5.195.8719 And worshipped by Drupada as long as he stayed, the Dasarnaka king then departed, having rebuked his daughter.
Mbh.5.195.8730 Hearing these words of his, the Yakshas said, O king, the royal Drupada had a daughter born unto him, of the name of Sikhandini!
Mbh.5.195.8755 And Drupada, the ruler of the Panchalas, along with his son Sikhandin whose wishes had been crowned with success, and with also his kinsmen, became exceedingly glad.
Mbh.5.195.8759 Indeed, all this way represented unto me, O sire, by the spies, disguised as idiots and as persons without the senses of vision, and hearing whom I had set upon Drupada.
Mbh.5.195.8761 Sikhandin, the son of Drupada, having first been born a female, subsequently became a person of the other sex.
Mbh.5.197.8819 Thou hast for thy allies Sikhandin, and Yuyudhana and Dhristadyumna of Prishata's race; and Bhimasena, and these twins, and Yudhamanyu, and Uttamaujas, and Virata and Drupada who are equal in battle unto Bhishma and Drona; and the mighty-armed Sankha, and Hidimva's son of great might; and this latter's son Anjanparvan endued with great strength and prowess; and Sini's descendant of mighty arms and well-versed in battle, and the mighty Abhimanyu and the five sons of Draupadi!
Mbh.5.199.8841 Indeed, he ordered that slayer of foes and commander of force, that leader, steady in prowess, of the Chedis, the Kasis, and the Karushas, viz, Dhrishtaketu, as also Virata, and Drupada, and Yuyudhana, and Sikhandin, and those two mighty bowmen, those two princes of Panchala, viz, Yudhamanyu and Uttamaujas, to set out.
Mbh.5.199.8849 And last of all, the king marched himself, accompanied by Virata and Drupada and the other monarchs on his side.
Mbh.6.25.1073 They are Yuyudhana, and Virata, and that mighty car-warrior Drupada, and Dhrishtaketu, and Chekitana, and the ruler of Kasi endued with great energy; and Purujit, and Kuntibhoja, and Saivya that bull among men; and Yudhamanyu of great prowess, and Uttamaujas of great energy; and Subhadra's son, and the sons of Draupadi, all of whom are mighty car-warriors.
Mbh.6.25.1086 And that splendid bowman, the ruler of Kasi and that mighty car-warrior, Sikhandin, Dhrishtadyumna, Virata, and that unvanquished Satyaki, and Drupada, and the sons of Draupadi, and the mighty-armed son of Subhadra, all these, O lord of earth, severally blew their conches.
Mbh.6.45.2229 Taking up then another bow and fourteen arrows, the son of Drupada pierced Drona in that encounter.
Mbh.6.45.2255 That chastiser of foes, king Drupada, then, in great wrath rushed against Jayadratha, the ruler of the Sindhus, cheerfully waiting for battle.
Mbh.6.45.2256 The ruler of the Sindhus pierced Drupada in that combat with three shafts, and Drupada pierced him in return.
Mbh.6.49.2562 The formidable son of Drupada also, O Sanjaya, is endued with great wisdom.
Mbh.6.49.2586 And soon abandoning in that battle, Pandu's son Arjuna capable of drawing the bow with even his left hand, Bhishma rushed towards Drupada, the king of the Panchalas, surrounded by his host.
Mbh.6.49.2588 Like a forest consumed by fire at the end of winter, the troops of Drupada were seen to be consumed.
Mbh.6.50.2628 I also am employed in doing thee good, as also that mighty car-warrior Satyaki and Virata and Drupada, both reverend in years, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's line.
Mbh.6.50.2646 And king Drupada, surrounded by a large number of troops, became the head of that array.
Mbh.6.53.2797 And Drona then, that foremost of car-warriors, abandoning the prince of Panchala, encountered Virata and Drupada together.
Mbh.6.56.2982 Next to him were those mighty car-warriors Virata and Drupada; and next to them was Nila armed with envenomed weapons.
Mbh.6.59.3235 And ascertaining that twang to be of Gandiva, king Virata and other heroes among men, and the brave Drupada, the king of the Panchalas, all proceeded to that spot with undepressed hearts.
Mbh.6.69.3744 And in its left wing was the high-souled and blessed Drupada with his son and supported by an akshauhini of all forces.
Mbh.6.71.3815 And the Matsyas, O king, engaged with Duryodhana, and Sakuni; and Drupada and Chekitana, and that mighty car-warrior Satyaki engaged in battle with the high-souled Drona aided by his son.
Mbh.6.75.3963 Drupada, and Dhananjaya the son of Pandu, formed the head of that array, and Sahadeva and that mighty car-warrior Nakula formed its two eyes.
Mbh.6.77.4078 Then thy son, in that terrible conflict, quickly coming up to his brothers, said unto them, This son of Drupada of wicked soul, is now united with Bhimasena.
Mbh.6.77.4084 On the other hand, that mighty car-warrior, the youthful son of Drupada, beholding those heroic sons of thine staying before him in battle and exerting themselves to their utmost being desirous of slaying them applied that fierce weapon called Pramohana and engaged with thy sons, O king, like Indra with the Danavas in battle.
Mbh.6.77.4087 And at that time Drona, the foremost of all wielders of weapons, approaching Drupada, pierced him with three fierce shafts.
Mbh.6.77.4088 And that monarch then, O king, viz, Drupada, deeply pierced by Drona, left the battle, O Bharata, remembering his former hostility with Bharadwaja's son.
Mbh.6.77.4089 Thereupon Drona endued with great prowess having thus vanquished Drupada, blew his conch.
Mbh.6.83.4358 Meanwhile, O monarch, Dhrishtadyumna, the mighty son of Drupada, covered thy royal son in battle with innumerable straight shafts.
Mbh.6.86.4532 Beholding Bhishma of infinite prowess, and our army routed and flying away, thou art assuredly, O son of Drupada, frightened, since the colour of thy face is pale.
Mbh.6.86.4537 The son of Drupada, however, O king, of prowess equal to that of Indra himself, beholding those weapons effulgent as the fire that blazeth forth at the hour of universal dissolution thus displayed, was not confounded in the least.
Mbh.6.90.4726 And those mighty car-warriors, viz, Virata and Drupada, with all the Somakas, rushed in battle against Bhishma alone.
Mbh.6.100.5344 And that great bowman Abhimanyu, and the mighty Drupada, and the five Kaikeya brothers, stood for battle, clad in mail.
Mbh.6.104.5528 Then Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandin and Virata and Drupada, falling upon Bhishma in that battle, struck that mighty car-warrior with numerous arrows.
Mbh.6.104.5529 Bhishma then, having pierced Dhrishtadyumna and Virata each with three arrows, sped a long shaft, O Bharata, at Drupada.
Mbh.6.104.5534 And Drupada pierced Bhishma with five and twenty shafts, and Virata pierced him with ten, and Sikhandin with five and twenty.
Mbh.6.105.5596 And so king Drupada also, having pierced Drona with many whetted shafts, once more pierced him with seventy shafts and his charioteer with nine.
Mbh.6.105.5602 The valiant Drona, pierced the latter's charioteer also, Then, O king, Drupada, thus afflicted at the head of his troops, retreated by the aid of his fleet steeds, recollecting the hostility that existed from days of old between himself and Drona.
Mbh.6.108.5866 That mighty car-warrior, the son of Drupada, O king, whom thou hast in thy army, who is known by the name of Sikhandin, who is wrathful in battle, brave, and ever victorious, was a female before but subsequently obtained manhood.
Mbh.6.109.5918 Next to him marched Drupada, O mighty-armed one.
Mbh.6.111.6022 And old Virata and Drupada, and Kuntibhoja also, clad in mail, rushed at Bhishma in the very sight of thy son.
Mbh.6.111.6033 And Aswatthaman, O king, excited with rage, resisted old Virata and Drupada, those two chastisers of foes united together.
Mbh.6.112.6098 Old Virata and Drupada, those mighty car-warriors, both excited with rage, rushed to battle with Bhishma, resisting the large host of the Kauravas as they went.
Mbh.6.112.6102 And Drupada also pierced him with three sharp shafts.
Mbh.6.112.6103 Then the preceptor's soil, Aswatthaman, coming upon those mighty warriors thus striking him, viz, the brave Virata and Drupada both proceeding towards Bhishma, pierced them both with many shafts.
Mbh.6.117.6401 Then, O elder brother of Pandu, the ruler of Pragjyotishas, abandoning that son of Pandu, quickly proceeded, O king, against the car of Drupada.
Mbh.6.119.6537 And Satyaki, and Chekitana, and Dhristadyumna of Prishata's race, and Virata, and Drupada, and the twin sons of Madri by Pandu, all protected by that firm bowman viz, Arjuna rushed against Bhishma alone in that battle.
Mbh.6.120.6558 He then pierced the six Pandava warriors, viz, Satyaki, and Bhima, and Dhananjaya the son of Pandu, and Drupada, and Virata, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, with many excellent arrows of great sharpness and dreadful whizz and exceeding impetuosity, and capable of piercing through every kind of armour.
Mbh.6.120.6567 They were Satyaki, and Bhimasena, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, and both Virata and Drupada, and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, and the wrathful Abhimanyu.
Mbh.6.121.6697 Even then I regarded the Kurus and all the others as slain by the Pandavas when Bhishma, despising the son of Drupada, struck him not.
Mbh.7.8.264 And the Kekaya princes, and Bhimasena, and Subhadra's son and Ghatotkacha and Yudhishthira, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the ruler of the Matsyas, and the son of Drupada, and the five sons of Draupadi, all filled with joy, and Dhrishtaketu, and Satyaki, and the wrathful Chitrasena, and the mighty car-warrior, Yuyutsu, and many other kings, O monarch, who followed the sons of Pandu, all achieved diverse feats in keeping with their lineage and prowess.
Mbh.7.8.286 Then Bhimasena and Dhananjaya and the grandson of Sini, and the sons of Drupada, and the ruler of Kasi, viz, the son of Saivya, and Sivi himself, cheerfully and with loud roars covered him with their arrows.
Mbh.7.8.289 Then Drona, desirous of the prosperity of thy sons, having thus crushed the divisions of Satyaki, and Bhima, and Dhananjaya and Subhadra's son and Drupada, and the ruler of the Kasi, and having ground many other heroes in battle, indeed, that high-souled warrior, having achieved these and many other feats, and having, O chief of the Kurus, scorched the world like the Sun himself as he rises at the end of the Yuga, proceeded hence, O monarch, to heaven.
Mbh.7.14.606 King Drupada was engaged with Bhagadatta.
Mbh.7.14.608 That bull among men, viz, Bhagadatta, pierced king Drupada and his driver and standard and car with many straight shafts.
Mbh.7.14.609 Then Drupada, excited with wrath, quickly pierced that mighty car-warrior in the chest with a straight shaft.
Mbh.7.14.656 Then Virata and Drupada, and Dhristaketu, and Yudhishthira, and Satyaki, and Kekaya, and Bhima, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Sikhandin, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the five sons of Draupadi, all exclaimed, Excellent!
Mbh.7.16.734 Then, Virata and Drupada, and the Kaikeya princes, and Satyaki, and Sivi, and Vyaghradatta, the prince n the Panchalas, and the valiant Singhasena, these, and many others, desirous of rescuing Yudhishthira, surrounded Drona on all sides and impeded his way, scattering countless arrows.
Mbh.7.20.913 Sanjaya continued, Having said these words, the mighty son of Drupada owning steeds of the hue of pigeons, scattering his shafts, rushed himself at Drona.
Mbh.7.23.1092 Behind the king was the royal chief of the Panchalas, viz, Drupada, with a golden umbrella over his head and himself protected by all those soldiers that followed Yudhishthira.
Mbh.7.23.1184 Then royal Drupada advanced against him at the head of a mighty division.
Mbh.7.33.1719 the son of Prishata, and Kuntibhoja of great prowess, and the mighty car-warrior Drupada.
Mbh.7.40.1979 Sanjaya said, Yudhishthira and Bhimasena, and Sikhandin and Satyaki, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and Dhrishtadyumna and Virata, and Drupada, and Kekaya, and Dhristaketu, all filled with wrath, and the Matsya warrior, rushed to battle.
Mbh.7.41.2016 with sixty arrows, he pierced Drupada with five sharp ones, and Sikhandin with ten.
Mbh.7.81.3577 Commanded by the king, the man introduced that concourse of heroes, consisting of Virata and Bhimasena and Dhrishtadyumna and Satyaki, and Dhrishtaketu, the ruler of the Chedis, and the mighty car-warriors, Drupada, and Sikhandin, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and Chekitana, and the ruler of the Kalikayas, and Yuyutsu, of Kuru's race, and Uttamaujas of the Panchalas, and Yudhamanyu, and Suvahu, and the five sons of Draupadi.
Mbh.7.83.3694 There where Vrikodara and Arjuna are, and the Vrishni hero, Satyaki, and Uttamaujas of the Panchalas, and the invincible Yudhamanyu, and the irrepressible Dhrishtadyumna, and the unvanquished Sikhandin, the Asmakas, the Kekayas, and Kshatradharman of the Somakas, the ruler of the Chedis, and Chekitana, and Vibhu, the son of the ruler of the Kasi, the sons of Draupadi, and Virata and the mighty car-warrior Drupada, and those tigers among men viz, the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the stayer of Madhu to offer counsel, who is there in this world that would fight these, expecting to live?
Mbh.7.108.5151 The five Kekaya brothers, and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, and Virata, and Drupada, and the mighty car-warrior Sikhandin and Dhrishtaketu of great strength, and Kuntibhoja, O sire, Nakula, and Sahadeva, and the Panchalas, and the Srinjayas, all these, O sire, will without doubt, very carefully protect me.
Mbh.7.111.5421 And Virata and Drupada and Drupada's son Dhrishtadyumna each Pierced him with five shafts, and Sikhandin, having once pierced him with five, again pierced him smilingly with five and twenty shafts.
Mbh.7.121.5962 And he pierced Virata and Drupada with six arrows, and Sikhandin with a hundred.
Mbh.7.122.6062 Then, O monarch, the mighty-armed Drupada of great intelligence said, This one Drona is slaying the Kshatriyas like a hungry tiger slaying smaller animals.
Mbh.7.122.6065 Saying these words, O monarch, Drupada, that master of an Akshauhini of troops, placing the Parthas at his head, rushed with speed towards Drona
Mbh.7.144.7483 How much superior then will this bull among the Satwatas be when he is united with the two sons of Drupada!
Mbh.7.150.7867 As, again, an assemblage of lotuses becomes shorn of its beauty when the water over which it grows is dried up by the sun and the wind, even so became the Pandava host being dried up by thy son, O Bharata, the Panchalas, with Bhimasena then with ten shafts, and each of the sons of Madri with three, and Virata and Drupada each with six, and Sikhandin with a hundred, and Dhrishtadyumna with seventy, and Yudhishthira with seven, and the Kaikeyas and the Chedis with innumerable keen shafts, and Satwata with five, and each of the five sons of Draupadi with three, and Ghatotkacha also with a few, he uttered a leonine shout.
Mbh.7.151.7896 Similarly, king Drupada, the father of Dhrishtadyumna, protected by the Panchalas proceeded, O king, against Drona.
Mbh.7.152.7992 Then the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and Drupada and Virata, and the Kaikeyas, and Yudhishthira also, felt great joy.
Mbh.7.153.8035 And he pierced Virata with eight arrows and Drupada with ten.
Mbh.7.153.8201 Filled once more with rage, the puissant son of Drona having pierced those mighty car-warriors, viz, the Parthas including Vrikodara and the sons of Prishata, slew Suratha, one of the sons of Drupada.
Mbh.7.154.8217 SECTION CLVI Sanjaya said, Beholding the sons of Drupada, as also those of Kuntibhoja, and Rakshasas too in thousands, slain by the son of Drona, Yudhishthira and Bhimasena, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata, and Yuyudhana, uniting together, set their hearts firmly on battle.
Mbh.7.154.8267 Abandoning Yudhishthira, Drona then, with eyes red as copper in rage, began to consume the division of Drupada with the Vayavya weapon.
Mbh.7.155.8338 Dhrishtadyumna, and Sikhandin and Janamejaya, the son of Durmuksha and Chandrasen, and Madrasen, and Kritavarman, Dhruva, and Dhara and Vasuchandra, and Sutejana, the sons of Drupada, and Drupada himself, conversant with high and mighty weapons, and the king of the Matsyas also, with his younger brothers, all resolutely struggling for their sake, and Gajanika, and Virabhadra, and Sudarsana, and Srutadhwaja, and Valanika, and Jayanika, and Jayaprya, and Vijaya and Labhalaksha, and Jayaswa, and Kamaratha, and the handsome brothers of Virata, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the five sons of Draupadi, and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, are all fighting for the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.162.8770 in that battle resisted the mighty Drupada with his troops and followers as the latter advanced for getting at Drona.
Mbh.7.166.8940 Vrishasena, O king, rushed with great speed, scattering shafts in hundreds, against the mighty car-warrior Drupada, advancing at the head of his troops against Drona
Mbh.7.166.8946 Then Vrishasena, O king, having pierced Drupada with nine arrows, once more pierced him with seventy, and then again with three other arrows.
Mbh.7.166.8948 Then Drupada, inflamed with wrath, cut off Vrishasena's bow into two fragments, with a broad-headed arrow, sharp and well-tempered.
Mbh.7.166.8949 Taking, then, another gold-decked bow that was new and strong, and drawing out of his quiver a strong, whetted, well-tempered, sharp and broad-headed arrow, and fixing it on his string, and carefully aiming it-at Drupada, he let it off with great force, inspiring all the Somakas with fear.
Mbh.7.166.8950 That arrow, piercing through the breast of Drupada, fell on the surface of the earth.
Mbh.7.182.9938 Let Nakula and Sahadeva and the sons of Draupadi and the Prabhadrakas, and Drupada and Virata with their sons and brothers, and Satyaki and the Kaikeyas and the Pandavas and Dhananjaya, rush with speed against Bharadwaja's son, from desire of slaying him.
Mbh.7.184.10104 Then Drupada and Virata proceeded, in that battle, against Drona, that invincible warrior, who was thus careering on the field.
Mbh.7.184.10105 Then, O king, the three grandsons of Drupada, and those mighty bowmen, viz, the Chedis, also proceeded against Drona in that encounter.
Mbh.7.184.10106 Drona, with three sharp shafts, took the lives of the three grandsons of Drupada.
Mbh.7.184.10110 Then Drupada, filled with wrath, and Virata, in that battle, shot showers of shafts, O king, at Drona.
Mbh.7.184.10111 Baffling that arrowy shower, Drona, that grinder of Kshatriyas, covered both Drupada and Virata with his shafts.
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.7.184.10116 Drona cut off, with a number of sharp and broad-headed arrows, those ten lances of Virata, and with certain other shafts that dart of Drupada decked with gold and stones of lapis lazuli.
Mbh.7.184.10117 Then that grinder of foes, viz, the son of Bharadwaja, with a couple of well-tempered and broad-headed shafts, despatched both Drupada and Virata unto the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.184.10118 Upon the fall of Virata and Drupada, and the slaughter of the Kshatriyas, the Chedis, the Matsyas, and the Panchalas, and upon the fall of those three heroes, viz, the three grandsons of Drupada, the high-souled Dhrishtadyumna, beholding those feats of Drona, became filled with rage and grief, and swore in the midst of all the ear-warriors, saying, Let me lose merits of all my religious acts as also my Kshatriya and Brahma energy, if Drona escape me today with life, or if he succeed in vanquishing me
Mbh.7.184.10123 Then Bhimasena, O sire, became highly angry with Dhrishtadyumna and, O bull among men, that son of Pandu pierced Dhrishtadyumna with these fierce words Bhimasena said, What man is there who being regarded as a Kshatriya and who taking his birth in the race of Drupada and who being the foremost of all persons possessing a knowledge of weapons, would only thus look at his foe stationed before him?
Mbh.7.189.10413 That hero had, for the destruction of Drona, been obtained by Drupada, that ruler of men, at a great sacrifice, from the Bearer of sacrificial libations.
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.8.6.164 So the two kings Virata and Drupada, both venerable in years, who exerted themselves with great prowess for their ally, have, with their sons, been slain in battle by Drona.
Mbh.8.26.1130 The mighty son of Drupada, filled with wrath, took up another bow, and addressing the son of Hridika, said, Wait, Wait
Mbh.8.26.1146 After the defeat of the heroic son of Drupada, O lord, the Pandava army, slaughtered on all sides, fled away from the field
