MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.2.34.1440 He appointed Dussasana to superintend the department of food and other enjoyable articles.
Mbh.2.65.2686 many of the Kurus with Dussasana amongst them have followed him in the path of dishonesty in the matter of this play at dice.
Mbh.2.66.2731 Duryodhana, hearing this, said, O Dussasana, this son of my Suta, of little intelligence, feareth Vrikodara.
Mbh.2.66.2734 Hearing the command of his brother, prince Dussasana rose with blood-red eyes, and entering the abode of those great warriors, spake these words unto the princess, Come, come, O Krishna, princess of Panchala, thou hast been won by us.
Mbh.2.66.2738 At this, Dussasana roaring in anger, ran after her and seized the queen by her locks, so long and blue and wavy.
Mbh.2.66.2741 And Dussasana dragging Krishna of long long locks unto the presence of the assembly, as if she were helpless though having powerful protectors, and pulling at her, made her tremble like the banana plant in a storm.
Mbh.2.66.2745 But Dussasana dragging Draupadi forcibly by her black locks while she was praying piteously unto Krishna and Vishnu who were Narayana and Nara on earth, said unto her, Whether thy season hath come or not, whether thou art attired in one piece of cloth or entirely naked, when thou hast been won at dice and made our slave, thou art to live amongst our serving-women as thou pleasest
Mbh.2.66.2746 Vaisampayana continued, With hair dishevelled and half her attire loosened, all the while dragged by Dussasana, the modest Krishna consumed with anger, faintly said, In this assembly are persons conversant with all the branches of learning devoted to the performance of sacrifices and other rites, and all equal unto Indra, persons some of whom are really my superiors and others who deserve to be respected as such.
Mbh.2.66.2770 And Dussasana, beholding Krishna looking at her helpless lords, dragging her still more forcibly, and addressed her, Slave, Slave' and laughed aloud.
Mbh.2.66.2772 And Sakuni, the son of Suvala, the Gandhara king, similarly applauded Dussasana.
Mbh.2.66.2789 Vaisampayana continued, Unto Krishna who was thus weeping and crying piteously, looking at times upon her helpless lord, Dussasana spake many disagreeable and harsh words.
Mbh.2.66.2847 O Dussasana, this Vikarna speaking words of apparent wisdom is but a boy.
Mbh.2.66.2850 Then Dussasana, O king, forcibly seizing Draupadi's attire before the eyes of all, began to drag it off her person
Mbh.2.66.2870 And when a mass of clothes had been gathered in that assembly, all dragged from the person of Draupadi, Dussasana, tired and ashamed, sat down.
Mbh.2.66.2923 Vaisampayana continued, The kings that were there hearing these words of Vidura, answered not a word, yet Karna alone spoke unto Dussasana, telling him.
Mbh.2.66.2925 And thereupon Dussasana began to drag before all the spectators the helpless and modest Draupadi, trembling and crying piteously unto the Pandavas her lords
Mbh.2.67.2926 SECTION LXVIII Draupadi said, Wait a little, thou worst of men, thou wicked-minded Dussasana.
Mbh.2.72.3104 Vaisampayana said, O king, learning that the Pandavas had been commanded by the wise Dhritarashtra to return to their capital, Dussasana went without loss of time unto his brother.
Mbh.2.75.3194 And Dussasana, beholding those chastisers of foes, dressed in deer-skins and deprived of their kingdom and ready to go into exile, exclaimed The absolute sovereignty of the illustrious king Duryodhana hath commenced.
Mbh.2.75.3212 Thus did Dussasana, the son of Dhritarashtra, utter in the hearing of the Pandavas, harsh words of the most cruel import.
Mbh.2.75.3217 Vaisampayana continued, Unto Bhima dressed in deer-skins and uttering these words of wrath without doing any thing, for he could not deviate from the path of virtue, Dussasana abandoning all sense of shame, dancing around the Kurus, loudly said, O cow!
Mbh.2.75.3219 Bhima at this once more said, Wretch darest thou, O Dussasana, use harsh words as these?
Mbh.2.75.3226 And as regards this other wicked person, Dussasana who is audacious in speech, I will drink his blood like a lion.
Mbh.2.75.3229 And Bhima again said, The earth shall drink the blood of Duryodhana, and Karna, and the wicked Sakuni, and Dussasana that maketh the fourth'
Mbh.2.78.3384 Drona then, addressing the envious and wrathful Duryodhana and Dussasana and Karna and all the Bharata, said, The Brahamanas have said that the Pandavas being of celestial origin are incapable of being slain.
Mbh.3.1.17 Alas, our families, we ourselves, and our homes are all gone, when the wicked Duryodhana, backed by the son of Suvala, by Karna and Dussasana, aspireth to this kingdom.
Mbh.3.4.306 And let Dussasana, in open court, ask forgiveness of Bhimasena and of the daughter of Drupada also.
Mbh.3.7.385 His understanding clouded by ignorance, he summoned the son of Suvala, and Karna and Dussasana, and addressed them saying, The learned Vidura, the minister of the wise Dhritarashtra, hath returned!
Mbh.3.7.396 Dussasana said, O uncle of great intelligence, it is even as thou sayest!
Mbh.3.7.402 Marking all this, Karna expanding his beautiful eyes, and vehemently gesticulating in anger, haughtily addressed Duryodhana and Dussasana and Suvala's son saying, Ye princes, know ye my opinion!
Mbh.3.11.529 And she whose braids had been dishevelled by the hand of Dussasana, stationed in the midst of the five Pandavas, looked like a stream chafing amid five hills.
Mbh.3.12.597 And respectfully saluting that foremost of the Kurus, Kesava mournfully said, The earth shall drink the blood of Duryodhana and Karna, of Dussasana and the wicked Sakuni!
Mbh.3.27.1243 O Bharata, when dressed in deer-skin thou hast set out for the woods, only four persons, O monarch, viz, Duryodhana, Karna, the evil-minded Sakuni, and Dussasana that bad and fierce brother of Duryodhana, did not shed tears!
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.3.44.2335 But the active Arjuna obtained no peace of mind, remembering the unfair play at dice of Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and thinking with rage of Dussasana and his death.
Mbh.3.49.2504 Hearing also those cruel words of Dussasana and Karna, they have been so incensed, O king, that they will not, I ween, forgive the Kurus on my account.
Mbh.3.51.2560 I shall, O chief of the Kurus, assisted by Rama and Bhima and Arjuna and the twins and Akrura and Gada and Shamva and Pradyumna and Ahuka and the heroic Dhrishtadyumna and the son of Sisupala, slay in battle in course of a day Duryodhana and Karna and Dussasana and Suvala's son and all others who may fight against us.
Mbh.3.120.6136 Let Samva chastise by the force of his arms Dussasana; let him destroy by force Dussasana and his charioteer and his car.
Mbh.3.234.11861 The cruel words that Dussasana spoke after Yudhishthira had been deceitfully defeated at dice, have sunk deep into Vrikodara's heart, and are consuming him, like a burning bundle of straw consuming a fagot of dry wood!
Mbh.3.234.11865 Alas Duryodhana, and Sakuni, and the Suta's son, and Dussasana also of wicked soul, in robbing the Pandavas of their kingdom by means of dice, seem to behold the honey alone without marking the terrible ruin.
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.3.236.11926 Contrive thou, therefore, some skilful plan, with Suvala's son and Dussasana, by which we may go to those woods!
Mbh.3.237.11976 And he was also accompanied by Dussasana and Suvala's son of great intelligence and by many other brothers of his and by ladies in thousands.
Mbh.3.239.12028 Then king Duryodhana, and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and Dussasana, and Vikarna, and other sons of Dhritarashtra, seated on cars the clatter of whose wheels resembled the roars of Garuda, returned to the charge, following the lead of Karna, and began to slaughter that host.
Mbh.3.240.12055 And after the Kuru king had been seized, the Gandharvas, surrounding Dussasana, who was seated on his car, also took him prisoner.
Mbh.3.240.12061 Dussasana, Durvishasa, Durmukha, and Durjaya, are all being led away as captives in chains by the Gandharvas, as also all the ladies of the royal household'
Mbh.3.247.12239 Let all our friends, including Karna, and all our relatives headed by Dussasana, return now to the capital.
Mbh.3.247.12251 Vaisampayana continued, While giving way to such reflections Duryodhana spoke unto Dussasana thus: O Dussasana, listen to these words of mine, O thou of the Bharata race!
Mbh.3.247.12261 Hearing these words of his, Dussasana in perfect cheerlessness and overwhelmed with great sorrow, his voice choked in tears, said, with joined hands and bending his head unto his eldest brother, Relent'
Mbh.3.247.12265 And Dussasana repeatedly said, Relent, O king!
Mbh.3.247.12267 And having spoken thus unto the king, Dussasana began to weep melodiously catching, O Bharata, the feet of his eldest brother deserving of worship from him.
Mbh.3.247.12268 And beholding Dussasana and Duryodhana thus weeping, Karna in great grief approached them both and said, Ye, Kuru princes, why do you thus yield to sorrow like ordinary men, from senselessness?
Mbh.3.249.12315 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words of Sakuni, and seeing the brave Dussasana lying prostrate before him unmanned by fraternal love, the king raised Dussasana and, clasping him in his well round arms, smelt his head from affection.
Mbh.3.250.12399 And all his brothers with Dussasana at their head, and Bhurisrava, and Somadatta, and the mighty king Vahlika, followed that lion among kings on his way, with cars of various forms, and horses, and the best of elephants.
Mbh.3.251.12414 thereupon, knowing that he was gone, those mighty bowmen with Karna, and Dussasana at their head, followed the highly powerful son of Dhritarashtra.
Mbh.3.254.12516 Then to a certain messenger on the point of setting out, Dussasana said, Go thou speedily to the woods of Dwaita; and in that forest duly invite the Brahmanas and those wicked persons, the Pandavas'
Mbh.3.260.12758 SECTION CCLX Janamejaya said, While the high-souled Pandavas were living in those woods, delighted with the pleasant conversation they held with the Munis, and engaged in distributing the food they obtained from the sun, with various kinds of venison to Brahmanas and others that came to them for edibles till the hour of Krishna's meal, how, O great Muni, did Duryodhana and the other wicked and sinful sons of Dhritarashtra, guided by the counsels of Dussasana, Karna and Sakuni, deal with them?
Mbh.3.260.12761 Vaisampayana said, When, O great king, Duryodhana heard that the Pandavas were living as happily in the woods as in a city, he longed, with the artful Karna, Dussasana and others, to do them harm.
Mbh.3.260.12776 Indeed, it had been agreed upon between himself and Karna and Dussasana as to what the boon should be that he would ask of the Muni if the latter were pleased with his reception.
Mbh.3.261.12812 As thou didst protect me before from Dussasana, do thou extricate me now from this difficulty
Mbh.4.26.1153 When Karna ceased, Duryodhana's second brother Dussasana, wedded to a sinful disposition, then addressed his eldest brother and said, O monarch, O lord of men, let those spies only in whom we have confidence, receiving their rewards in advance, once more go after the search.
Mbh.4.30.1243 Vaisampayana continued, Accepting these words of Karna, the son of Surya, king Duryodhana speedily commanded his brother Dussasana, born immediately after him and always obedient to his wishes, saying, Consulting with the elders, array without delay, our forces.
Mbh.4.35.1417 And Bhishma and Drona, and Karna, and Kripa acquainted with the best of weapons, Aswatthaman, and Suvala's son, and Dussasana, O lord of men, and Vivingsati and Vikarna and Chitrasena endued with great energy, and Durmukha and Dussaha, these and many other great warriors, coming upon the Matsya dominion speedily drove off the cowherds of king Virata and forcibly took away the kine.
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.4.61.2405 And at this, four mighty warriors, Dussasana and Vikarna and Dussaha and Vivingsati, skilled in weapons and endued with great energy, and all decked with handsome garlands and ornaments, rushed towards that terrible bowman.
Mbh.4.61.2407 Then the heroic Dussasana pierced the son of Virata with a crescent-shaped arrow and he pierced Arjuna with another arrow in the breast.
Mbh.4.61.2408 And Jishnu, confronting Dussasana, cut off by means of a sharp-edged arrow furnished with vulturine wings his adversary's bow plaited with gold, and then pierced his person in the breast by means of five arrows.
Mbh.4.61.2410 Dussasana fled, leaving the combat.
Mbh.4.65.2535 And Drona and Kripa and Vivingsati and Dussasana and others also, quickly turning back, rushed forward with speed with drawn bows and arrows fixed on the bow-strings, for protecting Duryodhana.
Mbh.5.26.1096 They are Dussasana, and Sakuni the son of Suvala, and Karna the Suta's son!
Mbh.5.29.1276 Dussasana forcibly took Krishna into the midst of the public hall wherein were seated her fathers-in-law.
Mbh.5.29.1288 When the sons of Pandu were about to adopt the garments made of the skins of black deer, Dussasana spoke the following pungent words, These all are mean eunuchs, ruined, and damned for a lengthened time'
Mbh.5.29.1299 Duryodhana is a big tree of evil passions; Karna is its trunk; Sakuni is its branches; Dussasana forms its abundant blossoms and fruits; while the wise king Dhritarashtra is its toots.
Mbh.5.30.1340 Thou shouldst also enquire about the welfare of even the wicked Dussasana, that mighty bowman and hero among the Kurus, who is the younger of Duryodhana and who possesses a character like that of his elder brother.
Mbh.5.31.1404 Dussasana, in obedience to thee, had dragged Krishna, disregarding Kunti.
Mbh.5.33.1512 Having bestowed on Duryodhana and Suvala's son and Karna, and Dussasana the management of the empire, how canst thou hope for prosperity?
Mbh.5.35.1793 Reposing the care of thy kingdom on Duryodhana, on Sakuni, on foolish Dussasana, and on Karna, how canst thou hope for prosperity?
Mbh.5.47.2658 And Dussasana and Chitrasena, and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and Durmukha and Dussaha, Karna and Uluka and Vivingsati, these also, with Duryodhana, the wrathful king of the Kurus, at their head, entered that hall, O monarch, like the celestials forming the train of Sakra himself.
Mbh.5.49.2821 Thou art alone in holding as true the opinion, O bull of the Bharata race, only three persons, viz, Karna, a low-born Suta's son cursed by Rama, Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and thy mean and sinful brother Dussasana'
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.5.57.3162 And all the sons of Duryodhana and Dussasana, as also king Vrihadvala, have been assigned to Subhadra's son as his share.
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.5.58.3217 Alas, thou dost not seek it of thy own will, but it is Karna and the evil-minded Dussasana and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, that are leading thee to it'
Mbh.5.58.3222 Three of us, O sire, viz, myself and Karna and my brother Dussasana, will slay the Pandavas in battle.
Mbh.5.63.3353 Myself, and Karna, the son of Vikartana, and my brother Dussasana, will slay in battle the five sons of Pandu by sharpened arrows.
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.5.73.3690 While the match at dice was in progress, the wretched Dussasana of most wicked soul, seizing that weeping lady by the hair dragged princess Draupadi, as if she had no protectors, to the assembly of kings, and in the presence of Bhishma and Drona and others, repeatedly called her, cow, cow!
Mbh.5.79.3851 Moreover, his sinful inclinations are fed by his counsellors Sakuni and Karna and his brother Dussasana.
Mbh.5.90.4206 Never before had a heavier grief been mine than what pierced my heart when that wretch Dussasana, moved by wrath and covetousness, dragged Draupadi, then in her flow, and therefore clad in a single raiment, into the presence of her father-in-law in the assembly and exposed her to the gaze of all the Kurus.
Mbh.5.90.4244 That was a great insult offered unto them, viz, that their wife Krishna, having been dragged into the assembly was addressed in such humiliating terms by Dussasana and Karna.
Mbh.5.91.4280 And he also beheld there Dussasana and Karna and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, seated on their respective seats by the side of Duryodhana.
Mbh.5.94.4434 And Dussasana gave an excellent seat to Satyaki, while Vivingsati gave another golden one to Kritavarman.
Mbh.5.124.5525 Reposing the cares of thy state on Dussasana, Durvisaha, Karna, and Suvala's son, thou desirest the continuance of thy prosperity, O Bharata.
Mbh.5.128.5646 All the Kauravas know what words were addressed in their assembly by Dussasana unto those chastisers of foes, the sons of Kunti, when they were about to set out for the woods.
Mbh.5.128.5648 Language such as becomes only those that are heartless and despicable, was frequently repeated by Karna and Dussasana and also by thee.
Mbh.5.128.5662 Vaisampayana continued, While he, of Dasarha's race, was saying this, Dussasana addressed vindictive Duryodhana and said unto him these words in the midst of the Kurus, If, O king, thou dost not willingly make peace with the Pandavas, verity the Kauravas will bind thee hand and foot and make over thee to the son of Kunti.
Mbh.5.128.5683 Binding in the same way Duryodhana and Karna and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and Dussasana, make them over to the Pandavas.
Mbh.5.129.5749 Thou that covetest the wealth of the Pandavas are not a match for them, nor this Suta's son, who is exceedingly wrathful, nor this thy brother Dussasana.
Mbh.5.130.5760 And this was the resolution which Duryodhana and Karna and Suvala's son Sakuni, with Dussasana as their fourth, arrived at, This Janardana, quick in action, seeketh, with the king Dhritarashtra and Santanu's son, to seize us first.
Mbh.5.130.5793 King Dhritarashtra then addressed Duryodhana, surrounded by Karna and Dussasana and all those kings, saying, O wretch of accumulated sins, having for thy allies men of despicable acts, infamous is the deed that thou, uniting with sinful friends, seekest to do.
Mbh.5.137.6166 O Kesava, recall to their remembrance all those cruel and harsh words that Dussasana said unto Bhima in the very presence of all the warriors of Kuru's race.
Mbh.5.141.6348 When the second son of Pandu will drink the blood of the loudly roaring Dussasana, then will the Soma-drinking of this sacrifice have taken place!
Mbh.5.142.6370 When thou wilt behold in battle the mighty Bhimasena dancing, after having quaffed the blood of Dussasana, like a fierce elephant with rent temples after having killed a mighty antagonist, then all signs of the Krita, the Treta, and the Dwapara ages will disappear.
Mbh.5.143.6382 The destruction of the whole earth that is at hand for its cause, Sakuni, and myself, and Dussasana, and king Duryodhana, the son of Dhritarashtra.
Mbh.5.144.6449 In consequence of the wickedness of Jayadratha and Karna and Dussasana and Suvala's son, intestine dissensions will break out.
Mbh.5.154.6841 Vaisampayana said, When he of Dasarha's race had departed from the Kuru court, king Duryodhana, addressing Karna and Dussasana and Sakuni, said these words, Kesava hath gone to the sons of Pritha, without having been able to achieve his object.
Mbh.5.155.6879 Indeed, all of them follow Duryodhana, except Vidura, O thou of unfading glory, Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and Karna, and Dussasana, all equally foolish, gave foolish and vindictive Duryodhana much improper advice regarding thee.
Mbh.5.161.7086 And king Duryodhana having strongly posted his troops and paid homage to all the kings on his side and planted outposts and bodies of soldiers for the protection of warriors, summoned those rulers of men, viz, Karna and Dussasana and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and began O Bharata, to consult with them.
Mbh.5.161.7087 And king Duryodhana, O Bharata, having first consulted with Karna, and next, O monarch, with Karna and his own brother Dussasana, and Suvala's son all together, then summoned, O bull among men, Uluka and bringing him into his presence in private, told him, O king, these words, O Uluka, O son of an adept at dice, repair thou unto the Pandavas and the Somakas.
Mbh.5.161.7260 As regards my army, it is a veritable main with Saradwat's son as its large fish, Vivingsati as its huge snake, Bhishma as its current of immeasurable might, Drona as its unconquerable alligator, Karna and Salwa and Salya its fishes and whirlpools, the ruler of the Kamvojas its equine head emitting fire, Vrihadvala its fierce waves, Somadatta's son its whale, Yuyutsu and Durmarshana its waters, Bhagadatta its gale, Srutayus and Hridika's son its gulfs and bays, Dussasana its current, Sushena and Chitrayuda its water-elephants hippopotamus and crocodile, Jayadratha its submarine rock, Purumitra its depth, and Sakuni its shores!
Mbh.5.162.7278 Let him, if able, drink the blood of Dussasana!
Mbh.5.164.7426 Thou shalt, O Suyodhana, very soon see the fulfilment of that which Bhimasena in anger had said, in the midst of the assembly, unto thy brother, that man of limited sight, viz, Dussasana, wedded to unrighteousness, always quarrelsome, of wicked understanding, and cruel in behaviour.
Mbh.5.164.7449 I swear in the name of Truth, slaying Dussasana in battle, I shall quaff his life-blood!
Mbh.5.164.7475 And having listened to the words of the gambler's son, Duryodhana, that bull of Bharata's race, ordered Dussasana and Karna and Sakuni, O Bharata, and their own troops and the troops of the allies, and all the assembled kings, to be arrayed in divisions and be ready for battle before sunrise next morrow.
Mbh.5.166.7514 Firstly, with thy country of brothers including Dussasana and others, thou art of the foremost of Rathas!
Mbh.5.167.7554 Thy son Lakshmana and the son also of Dussasana, those tigers among men are both unretreating in battle.
Mbh.6.14.775 Duryodhana and Karna and the deceitful Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and Dussasana also, what did they say when Bhishma was slain?
Mbh.6.15.796 Duryodhana, O king, said these words to Dussasana, O Dussasana, let cars be speedily directed for the protection of Bhishma, and do thou speedily urge all our divisions to advance.
Mbh.6.15.810 O Dussasana, act in such a way that Sikhandin who is protected by Phalguni and whom Bhishma will renounce, may not slay Ganga's son
Mbh.6.18.889 Dussasana, and Durvishaha, and Durmukha, and Dussaha and Vivinsati, and Chitrasena, and that mighty car-warrior Vikarna.
Mbh.6.44.2163 Sanjaya said, Hearing those words of his elder brother, thy son Dussasana advanced with his troops, with Bhishma at their head, and the Pandavas also advanced with cheerful hearts, desiring battle with Bhishma, having Bhimasena at their head.
Mbh.6.44.2175 Thereupon the brothers, viz, thy sons Duryodhana, and Durmukha and Dussaha, and that mighty car-warrior Dussasana, and Durmarshana, O king, and Vivingsati, and Chitrasena, and the great car-warrior Vikarna and also Purumitra, and Jaya, and Bhoja, and the valorous son of Somadatta, shaking their splendid bows like masses of clouds exhibiting the lightning's flashes, and taking out of their quivers long arrows resembling snakes that have just cast off their sloughs, surrounded that mighty bowman rushing towards them covering him with flights of arrows like the clouds shrouding the sun.
Mbh.6.45.2215 And Dussasana, rushing against that mighty car-warrior Nakula, pierced him with many sharp arrows capable of penetrating into the very vitals.
Mbh.6.48.2533 Then, O king, beholding Sweta overthrown, Dussasana danced in joy over the field in accompaniment With the loud music of conches and drums.
Mbh.6.49.2552 Always forbidden by me, by Gandhari, by Vidura, by Rama the son of Jamadagni, and by the high-souled Vyasa also, the wicked-minded and sinful Duryodhana, with Dussasana, O Sanjaya, always following the counsels of Karna and Suvala's son, behaved maliciously towards the Pandavas.
Mbh.6.51.2656 SECTION LI Sanjaya said, Beholding the mighty and terrible array called Krauncha formed by Pandu's son of immeasurable energy, thy son, approaching the preceptor, and Kripa, and Salya, O sire, and Somadatta's son, and Vikarna, and Aswatthaman also, and all his brothers too, headed by Dussasana, O Bharata, and other immeasurable heroes assembled there for battle, said these timely words, gladdening them all, Armed with various kinds of weapons, ye all are conversant with the meaning of the scriptures.
Mbh.6.51.2660 Let the Samsthanas, the Surasenas, the Venikas, the Kukkuras, the Rechakas, the Trigartas, the Madrakas, the Yavanas, with Satrunjayas, and Dussasana, and that excellent hero Vikarna, and Nanda and Upanandaka, and Chitrasena, along with the Manibhadrakas, protect Bhishma with their respective troops, Then Bhishma and Drona and thy sons, O sire, formed a mighty array for resisting that of the Parthas.
Mbh.6.62.3349 And Duryodhana, and Vikarna, and Dussasana, and Vivinsati and Durmarshana, and Dussala, and Chitrasena, and Durmukha, and Satyabrata, blessed be thou, and Purumitra, O Bharata, these, protecting the car of the ruler of the Madras, stationed themselves there.
Mbh.6.62.3358 And Durmarshana pierced him with twenty, and Chitrasena with five, and Durmukha with nine, and Dussaha with seven, and Vivinsati with five, and Dussasana with three shafts.
Mbh.6.71.3808 Then, O king, with many huge and fleet steeds of the Kamvoja breed, and surrounded by many thousand of Gopas with a large Gopayana force and supported by the Madras, the Sauviras, the Gandharas and the Trigartas, and surrounded by all the principal Kalingas, the king of the Kalingas, and king Jayadratha accompanied by all the kings and supported by a large force of diverse races with Dussasana at their head, and fourteen thousand principal horsemen, urged by thy son, surrounded the son of Suvala for supporting him.
Mbh.6.76.4026 And that host is protected by Drona and Bhishma and by Kritavarman and Kripa and Dussasana, and others headed by Jayadratha.
Mbh.6.77.4045 The mighty Bhima, beholding Dussasana and Durvisaha and Dussaha and Durmada and Jaya, and Jayasena and Vikarna and Chitrasena and Sudarsana, and Charuchitra and Suvarman and Duskarna and Karna, and many other mighty car-warriors, excited with rage, of the Dhartarashtra host near enough to himself, penetrated into thy mighty array that was protected by Bhishma in that battle.
Mbh.6.79.4141 Dussasana in that battle, O sire, fought with the five Kekaya brothers.
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.6.98.5197 SECTION XCVIII Sanjaya said, Then king Duryodhana, and Sakuni the son of Suvala, and thy son Dussasana, and the invincible Suta's son Karna meeting together, consulted in the following way.
Mbh.6.98.5218 Thus addressed by Karna, thy son Duryodhana then said unto his brother Dussasana these words, See, O Dussasana, that without delay that all who walk in my train be dressed'
Mbh.6.98.5222 Then his brother Dussasana caused that tiger among king, endued, besides, with the prowess of a tiger, to mount on his horse.
Mbh.6.99.5301 Understanding from signs that Ganga's son had been thinking of that, Duryodhana, O king, commanding Dussasana, saying, O Dussasana, let cars be quickly appointed for protecting Bhishma.
Mbh.6.99.5330 O Dussasana, adopt such steps that, protected by Partha, Sikhandin may not be able to slay Bhishma left unprotected by us'
Mbh.6.99.5331 Hearing these words of his brother, thy son Dussasana, accompanied by the troops, advanced for battle, placing Bhishma in the van.
Mbh.6.106.5617 O king, by the clouds at the end of summer, Duryodhana, O monarch, addressed Dussasana, saying, This heroic and great bowman Bhishma, this slayer of heroes, hath, O bull of Bharata's race, been surrounded on all sides by the brave Pandavas.
Mbh.6.106.5623 Thus addressed by Duryodhana, thy son Dussasana, surrounding Bhishma with a large force on all sides took up his position.
Mbh.6.111.6035 And that great bowman, viz, Dussasana, in that battle, resisted Arjuna who was rushing with great speed, with Sikhandin before him, desirous of coming upon Bhishma, O monarch, and illuminating the ten quarters with his bright weapons.
Mbh.6.111.6045 That mighty car-warrior, Dussasana, abandoning all fears, rushed against Dhananjaya, desirous of protecting the life of Bhishma.
Mbh.6.111.6049 As the continent resists the surging sea, even so did thy son Dussasana resist the angry son of Pandu.
Mbh.6.111.6056 And Dussasana, O king, in that battle pierced the son of Pandu with three shafts and Vasudeva with twenty.
Mbh.6.111.6057 Then Arjuna, excited with rage upon beholding him of Vrishni's race thus afflicted, pierced Dussasana with a hundred shafts.
Mbh.6.111.6059 Then Dussasana, excited with wrath, pierced Partha with five shafts.
Mbh.6.111.6063 The son of Pandu then, excited with rage, afflicted Dussasana, like Rahu inflamed with rage on the fifteenth day of the lighted fortnight afflicting the Moon at full.
Mbh.6.112.6134 Dussasana however, to the utmost stretch of his power, began to resist Partha, wishing, O Bharata, to protect Bhishma.
Mbh.6.116.6316 Then diverse kings, of great might, urged by thy son, and accompanied by Drona and his son and a large force, and the mighty Dussasana at the head of all his uterine brothers, proceeded towards Bhishma staying in the midst of that battle.
Mbh.6.118.6438 The prowess that we then beheld there of thy son Dussasana was wonderful, inasmuch as he battled with Partha and protected the grandsire at the same time.
Mbh.6.118.6439 With that feat of thy son Dussasana, that illustrious bowman, all the people there were highly gratified.
Mbh.6.118.6441 Many car-warriors were in that battle deprived of their cars by Dussasana.
Mbh.6.118.6446 Then Arjuna also called Vijaya, vanquishing Dussasana in battle, O king, in the very sight of all the troops, proceeded against Bhishma.
Mbh.6.118.6471 Partha then, O monarch, having routed the Kaurava army, sped many arrows at Dussasana.
Mbh.6.118.6472 Those arrows with iron heads, piercing thy son Dussasana through, all entered the earth like snakes through ant-hills.
Mbh.6.118.6476 Thus deprived of their cars and vanquished in battle by Savyasachin, Kripa and Salya, O sire, and Dussasana, and Vikarna and Vivingsati, all fled away.
Mbh.6.119.6504 Then Salya and Kripa, and Chitrasena, O Bharata, and Dussasana, and Vikarna, those heroes mounted on their bright cars, caused the Pandava host to tremble.
Mbh.6.120.6611 That great bowman, thus pierced greatly, then addressed Dussasana, and skid, Behold, Partha, that great car-warrior of the Pandavas, excited with wrath in battle, pierceth me alone with many thousands of arrows.
Mbh.6.120.6615 While Bhishma was thus speaking to Dussasana, Phalguni with sharp shafts, and placing Sikhandin to the fore, pierced Bhishma in that battle.
Mbh.6.120.6616 Then Bhishma, deeply and excessively pierced by the wielder of Gandiva with keen-pointed shafts, once more addressed Dussasana with a smile and said, These arrows coursing towards me in one continuous line, whose touch resembleth that of heaven's bolt, have been shot by Arjuna.
Mbh.6.121.6726 Beholding Bhishma fallen, thy son Dussasana, with great speed, entered the division commanded by Drona.
Mbh.6.121.6729 Beholding him coming towards them, the Kauravas surrounded prince Dussasana, desirous, O monarch, of hearing what he had to say.
Mbh.6.121.6730 Then Dussasana of Kuru's race informed Drona of Bhishma's slaughter.
Mbh.7.72.3144 Drona and Duryodhana and Kripa, and Karna, and the ruler of the Madras, and Valhika, and Dussasana and others, are capable of protecting a person who is afflicted by Yama himself.
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.12.44.2204 The mighty-armed Arjuna also, at the command of the king, obtained the palace of Dussasana which was not inferior to Duryodhana's and which consisted of many excellent structures and was adorned with a gate-way of gold, and which abounded in wealth and was full of attendants of both sexes.
Mbh.12.44.2205 The palace of Durmarshana was even superior to that of Dussasana.
Mbh.14.61.2812 Having slain hundreds and thousands of kings of Earth, he was brought to grief by Drona and Karna and at last succumbed to the son of Dussasana.
Mbh.14.61.2815 Then, O sire, after he had slaughtered a very large number of foes in battle, thy daughter's son at last succumbed to the son of Dussasana.
Mbh.15.3.79 The wrathful Vrikodara, recollecting his foes Duryodhana and Karna and Dussasana, gave way to a transport of passion, and said these harsh words: The sons of the blind king, capable of fighting with diverse kinds of weapons, have all been despatched by me to the other world with these arms of mine that resemble a pair of iron clubs.
Mbh.15.17.710 In the very sight of you all, O Bhima, Dussasana, through folly, dragged her trembling all over like a plantain plant, during the period of her functional illness, and after she had been won at dice, as if she were a slave.
Mbh.15.17.714 When she was dragged by her fair locks by the sinful Dussasana with little intelligence, I was deprived of my senses, O king.
Mbh.15.31.1268 O thou of good features, know that Dussasana and others were all Rakshasas.
Mbh.15.32.1300 There were Karna and Duryodhana, and the mighty car-warrior Sakuni, and the other children, endued with great strength, of Dhritarashtra, headed by Dussasana.
