MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.126 Unable to bear it all and unable himself to overcome the sons of Pandu in the field, and though a soldier, unwilling yet to obtain good fortune by his own exertion, with the help of the king of Gandhara he concerted an unfair game at dice.
Mbh.1.110.6097 Bhishma, the grandfather of the Kurus, having heard this, sent messengers unto the king of Gandhara.
Mbh.1.116.6277 The great Rishi Vyasa of immeasurable energy said unto the daughter of the king of Gandhara that she would become the mother of a hundred sons.
Mbh.1.187.9420 Sakuni, Sauvala, Vrisaka, and Vrihadvala, these sons of the king Gandhara, have also come.
Mbh.2.33.1421 And Dhritarashtra and Bhishma and Vidura of high intelligence; and all Kaurava brothers with Duryyodhana at their head; and Suvala the king of Gandhara and Sakuni endued with great strength; and Achala, and Vrishaka, and Karna that foremost of all charioteers; and Salya endued with great might and the strong Valhika; and Somadatta, and Bhuri of the Kuru race, and Bhurisravas and Sala; and Aswatthama, Kripa, Drona, and Jayadratha, the ruler of Sindhu; and Yajnasena with his sons, and Salya that lord of earth and that great car warrior king Bhagadatta of Pragjyotisha accompanied by all Mlechcha tribes inhabiting the marshy regions on the sea-shore; and many mountain kings, and king Vrihadvala; and Vasudeva the king of the Paundrayas, and the kings of Vanga and Kalinga; and Akastha and Kuntala and the kings of the Malavas and the Andhrakas; and the Dravidas and the Singhalas and the king of Kashmira, and king Kuntibhoja of great energy and king Gauravahana, and all the other heroic kings of Valhika; and Virata with his two sons, and Mavella endued with great might; and various kings and princes ruling in various countries; and, O Bharata king Sisupala endued with great energy and invincible in battle accompanied by his son, all of them came to the sacrifice of the son of Pandu.
Mbh.2.46.1916 Having reflected in this way, Duryodhana, as if burnt by fire, addressed the king of Gandhara again and said, I shall throw myself upon a flaming fire or swallow poison or drown myself in water.
Mbh.2.57.2339 Vidura said, O monarch, Sakuni, the king of Gandhara, an adept at dice, having great skill of hand and desperate in stakes, Vivingati, king Chitrasena, Satyavrata, Purumitra and Jaya, these, O king, are there'
Mbh.2.66.2772 And Sakuni, the son of Suvala, the Gandhara king, similarly applauded Dussasana.
Mbh.2.69.3020 Listening to the words of the king of Gandhara, fall ye not off from this undoubted truth'
Mbh.2.75.3214 Boastest thou thus in the midst of the kings, advanced as thou art by the skill of the king of Gandhara.
Mbh.2.75.3235 Vaisampayana continued, After Arjuna had said this, Sahadeva the handsome son of Madri, endued with great energy, desirous of slaying Sakuni, waving his mighty arms and sighing like snake, exclaimed, with eyes red with anger, Thou disgrace of the Gandhara kings, those whom thou thinkest as defeated are not really so.
Mbh.3.126.6466 The mighty ruler of the Gandhara land, born in the lunar dynasty of kings, who was terrible like a a roaring cloud, was slain by him, who wounded him sorely with his shafts.
Mbh.4.17.713 And embracing Bhimasena even as a she-elephant embraceth her mighty mate, the faultless Panchali addressed him in voice sweet as the sound of a stringed instrument emitting Gandhara note.
Mbh.4.50.1945 This thy wise uncle, fully conversant with the duties of the Kshatriya order, this deceitful gambler Sakuni, the prince of Gandhara, let him fight now!
Mbh.5.2.48 Let him respectfully salute Bhishma the heroic scion of Kuru's race, and the magnanimous son of Vichitravirya, and Drona along with his son, and Vidura and Kripa, and the king of Gandhara, along with the Suta's son.
Mbh.5.2.52 This valiant Kuru, this descendant of Ajamida, Yudhishthira, though not skilled in dice and though dissuaded by all his friends, challenged the son of the king of Gandhara, an adept at dice, to the match.
Mbh.5.29.1289 And Sakuni, the king of the Gandhara land, spoke to Yudhishthira at the time of the game of dice the following words by way of a wily trick, Nakula hath been won by me from you, what else have you got?
Mbh.5.94.4436 And Sakuni, the king of Gandhara, surrounded by the chiefs of his country, sat there, O king, with his son beside him.
Mbh.6.20.959 Him Sakuni, the ruler of the Gandharas, followed with mountaineers of Gandhara placed all around.
Mbh.6.45.2279 And the Kekaya brothers, O sire, at the head of their troops, encountered in battle the five Gandhara princes with their troops.
Mbh.6.91.4784 Breaking through that invincible cavalry division of the Pandavas, O thou of mighty arms, those Gandhara warriors who could with difficulty be vanquished, supported by a large force, desirous of heaven, longing for victory, and filled with delight, penetrated into it.
Mbh.7.7.217 And Sakuni, accompanied by many foremost of horsemen battling with bright lances and belonging to the Gandhara tribe, proceeded, acting as their support.
Mbh.7.28.1450 Then the two sons of the king of Gandhara viz, the brothers Vrishaka and Achala, those subjugators of hostile towns, began to afflict Arjuna in battle.
Mbh.7.28.1453 With clouds of arrows and diverse other weapons, Arjuna then once more severely afflicted the Gandhara troops headed by Suvala's son.
Mbh.7.28.1458 Of unfailing aim, these two princes of Gandhara, themselves unhurt, began once more to strike the son of Pandu, like the two months of summer afflicting the world with sweat-producing rays
Mbh.7.32.1714 There also on Jayadratha's flank, were those mighty car-warriors, viz, the ruler of Gandhara, ie, the gamester Sakuni, and Salya, and Bhurisrava.
Mbh.7.47.2224 Then that hero pressed Suvala's son, Kalikeya, down into the earth, and stew seven and seventy Gandhara followers of the latter.
Mbh.7.85.3764 And he proceeded to the spot indicated by Drona, accompanied by many Gandhara warriors, and surrounded by those great car-warriors, and with many foot-soldiers clad in mail, prepared to fight vigorously and armed with nooses.
Mbh.7.92.4257 Sakuni with seven hundred Gandhara warriors armed with bows, darts and swords, resisted the son of Madri viz, Sahadeva.
Mbh.7.93.4291 The two sons of Madri, filled with wrath, fiercely ground with their shafts the Gandhara prince Sakuni who had offended against them greatly.
Mbh.8.46.2516 Shakuni, and the mighty car-warrior Uluka, standing on the right of these, and accompanied by many fearless Gandhara horsemen armed with bright lances, and many mountaineers difficult to defeat, numerous as flights of locusts, and grimlooking as Pishacas, protected the Kaurava army.
Mbh.9.3.192 The celebrated sons of Madri, with Satyaki among them, engaged in the pursuit of the Gandhara king who was quick in the use of weapons, speedily appeared to our view.
Mbh.9.18.1131 Then Shakuni, the son of the Gandhara king, possessed of eloquence, O monarch, said unto Duryodhana these words, How is this that we are standing here, while the Madraka host is being slaughtered before our eyes?
Mbh.9.21.1406 Then Shakuni, the son of the Gandhara king, said, Fight all of ye in front!
Mbh.9.25.1702 Filled with wrath in today's battle, I shall, by slaying the prince of Gandhara with my keen shafts, dispel that sleeplessness which the king has suffered from for a long time!
Mbh.12.183.11102 They are the seven original notes called Shadja, Rishabha, Gandhara, Mahdhyama, Panchama, Dhaivata and Nishada.
Mbh.13.17.2443 Thou art the note called Gandhara in the musical octave.
Mbh.13.17.2537 Thou art that note which, arising from the region called Gandhara, is exceedingly sweet to the ear.
Mbh.14.50.2166 Shadaja, Rishabha, together with Gandhara, Madhyama, and likewise Panchama; after this should be known Nishada, and then Dhaivata
Mbh.14.84.3739 Then Arjuna, carelessly shooting from Gandiva many shafts with razor-like heads that blazed with splendour, cut off the heads of many Gandhara warriors.
Mbh.14.84.3741 Resisted, however, by those Gandhara combatants who still surrounded him on every side, the son of Pandu, possessed of great energy, felled the heads of many, previously naming those whom he thus despatched.
Mbh.14.84.3742 When the Gandhara warriors were thus being slain all around him in battle, the royal son of Sakuni came forward to resist the son of Pandu.
Mbh.14.84.3743 Unto the Gandhara king who was fighting with him, impelled by Kshatriya duty, Arjuna said, I do not intend to slay the kings who fight with me, in consequence of the commands of Yudhishthira.
Mbh.14.84.3749 Beholding this feat, all the Gandhara warriors became filled with wonder.
Mbh.14.84.3755 Verity, the Gandhara army was exceedingly afflicted with those large shafts which Partha sped from Gandiva.
Mbh.16.7.344 Rukmini, the princess of Gandhara, Saivya, Haimavati, and queen Jamvabati ascended the funeral pyre.
