MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.2.365 The Astika describes the birth of Garuda and of the Nagas snakes, the churning of the ocean, the incidents relating to the birth of the celestial steed Uchchaihsrava, and finally, the dynasty of Bharata, as described in the Snake-sacrifice of king Janamejaya.
Mbh.1.16.1321 Then at the expiration of the five hundred years, bursting open the other egg, out came Garuda, the serpent-eater.
Mbh.1.23.1489 In the meantime, when his time came, burst forth from the egg without the help of his mother, Garuda of great splendour, enkindling all the points of the universe, that mighty being endued with strength, that bird capable of assuming at will any form, of going at will everywhere, and of calling to his aid at will any measure of energy.
Mbh.1.23.1499 This is Garuda of great strength and equal to me in splendour, endued with great energy, and born to promote the joy of Vinata.
Mbh.1.23.1505 The gods said, Thou art a Rishi ie, one cognisant of all mantras, share of the largest portion in sacrifices, ever resplendent, the controller along with the Rishi wended their way towards Garuda and adored him of birds, the presiding spirit of the animate and the inanimate universe.
Mbh.1.23.1513 O mighty Garuda who movest in the skies, we seek thy protection.
Mbh.1.24.1529 And Garuda said, Let no creature be afraid; as ye are in a fright at the sight of my terrible form, I shall diminish my energy'
Mbh.1.24.1554 I have told thee now why Surya was in wrath, and how Aruna, the brother of Garuda, was appointed as his charioteer.
Mbh.1.25.1562 And Garuda also, directed by his mother's words, carried on his back the snakes.
Mbh.1.27.1612 On arriving there with Garuda, they saw there a beautiful forest washed by the waters of the sea and resounding with the music of winged choirs.
Mbh.1.27.1625 And they commanded the lord of birds, viz, Garuda, of great energy, saying, Convey us to some other fair island with pure water.
Mbh.1.27.1627 Garuda, alter reflecting for a few moments, asked his mother Vinata, saying, Why, mother, have I to do the bidding of the snakes'
Mbh.1.28.1634 SECTION XXVIII Astika Parva continued Sauti said, Garuda, thus addressed by the snakes, then said unto his mother, I shall go to bring amrita, I desire to eat something in the way.
Mbh.1.28.1649 Garuda then asked, O mother, of what form is a Brahmana, of what behaviour, and of what prowess?
Mbh.1.28.1660 Sauti continued, Then Garuda, having heard the words of his mother, stretched his wings and ascended the skies.
Mbh.1.29.1670 Him Garuda addressed, saying, O best of Brahmanas, come out soon from my mouth which I open for thee.
Mbh.1.29.1672 Unto Garuda who had thus addressed him that Brahmana said, O, let this woman of the Nishada caste, who is my wife, also come out with me'
Mbh.1.29.1673 And Garuda said, Taking the woman also of the Nishada caste with thee, come out soon.
Mbh.1.29.1675 Sauti continued, And then that Brahmana, accompanied by his wife of the Nishada caste, came out, and praising Garuda wended whatever way he liked.
Mbh.1.29.1677 He then saw his father, and, hailed by him, Garuda, of incomparable prowess made proper answers.
Mbh.1.29.1681 Garuda replied, My mother is ever well.
Mbh.1.29.1720 Sauti continued, Having said so unto Garuda, he Kasyapa blessed him, saying, Blest be thou when thou art in combat with the gods.
Mbh.1.29.1723 Garuda, thus addressed by his father, wended to the side of that lake.
Mbh.1.30.1736 SECTION XXX Astika Parva continued Sauti said, At the very touch by Garuda of great might with his feet, the branch of the tree broke as it was caught by Garuda.
Mbh.1.30.1741 And they said, As this ranger of the skies rises on its wings bearing a heavy burden, let this foremost of birds having snakes for his food be called Garuda bearer of heavy weight'
Mbh.1.30.1742 And shaking the mountains by his wings, Garuda leisurely coursed through the skies.
Mbh.1.30.1751 And Kasyapa said, Ye whose wealth is asceticism, the essay of Garuda is for the good of all creatures.
Mbh.1.30.1760 Garuda, the lord of birds, then flew away for hundreds of thousand of yojanas within, the shortest time.
Mbh.1.30.1768 Then that best of birds, Garuda, perching on the summit of that mountain, ate both the elephant and the tortoise, rose on his wings with great speed from the top of the mountain.
Mbh.1.31.1799 How was Garuda born in consequence of the ascetic penances of the Valakhilyas?
Mbh.1.31.1845 And she gave birth to two sons, Aruna and Garuda.
Mbh.1.31.1847 And Garuda was vested with the lordship over the birds.
Mbh.1.31.1848 O thou of Bhrigu's race, hearken now to the mighty achievement of Garuda
Mbh.1.32.1850 SECTION XXXII Astika Parva continued Sauti said, O foremost of Brahmanas, the gods having prepared for battle in that way, Garuda, the king of birds, soon came upon those wise ones.
Mbh.1.32.1856 And the immortals who guarded the amrita, blinded by that dust, could no longer see Garuda.
Mbh.1.32.1857 Even thus did Garuda agitate the region of the heavens.
Mbh.1.32.1862 And when the darkness had disappeared, the celestials attacked Garuda.
Mbh.1.32.1868 And blood began to flow copiously from the bodies of the gods mangled by the talons and the beak of Garuda.
Mbh.1.32.1871 And Garuda had encounters with the Yakshas, Aswakranda of great courage, Rainuka, the bold Krathanaka, Tapana, Uluka, Swasanaka, Nimesha, Praruja, and Pulina.
Mbh.1.32.1874 And Garuda, depriving them of life, and then went to where the amrita was.
Mbh.1.32.1878 The illustrious Garuda then assumed ninety times ninety mouths and quickly drinking the waters of many rivers with those mouths and returning with great speed, that chastiser of enemies, having wings for his vehicle extinguished that fire with that water.
Mbh.1.33.1884 Garuda, seeing a passage through it, stopped there for a moment.
Mbh.1.33.1897 And Narayana was gratified at that act of self-denial on the part of Garuda.
Mbh.1.33.1902 Garuda, receiving those two boons, told Vishnu, I also shall grant thee a boon; therefore, let the possessor of the six attributes ask of me'
Mbh.1.33.1903 Vishnu then asked the mighty Garuda to become his carrier.
Mbh.1.33.1906 And while that foremost of all rangers of the skies, that first of winged creatures, Garuda, was coursing through the air after wresting the Amrita, Indra hurled at him his thunderbolt.
Mbh.1.33.1907 Then Garuda, the lord of birds, struck with thunderbolt, spake laughingly unto Indra engaged in the encounter, in sweet words, saying, I shall respect the Rishi Dadhichi of whose bone the Vajra hath been made.
Mbh.1.33.1912 And all creatures became exceedingly glad, beholding that excellent feather of Garuda so cast off.
Mbh.1.34.1918 SECTION XXXIV Astika Parva continued Sauti continued, Garuda then said, O Purandara, let there be friendship between thee and me as thou desirest.
Mbh.1.34.1924 Sauti continued, O Saunaka, after Garuda of great courage had thus spoken, Indra the chief of the gods, the wearer of the celestial crown, ever bent upon the good of the worlds, replied, saying, It is as thou sayest.
Mbh.1.34.1929 Garuda answered, There is a certain reason for which the Soma is being carried by me.
Mbh.1.34.1934 Sauti continued, Then Garuda, recollecting the sons of Kadru and remembering also the bondage of his mother caused by an act of deception owing to the well-known reason viz, the curse of Aruna, said, Although I have power over all creatures, yet I shall do your bidding.
Mbh.1.34.1937 And the latter sanctioned everything that had been said by Garuda.
Mbh.1.34.1938 And the illustrious lord of heaven again said unto Garuda, I shall bring away the Soma when thou placest it down'
Mbh.1.34.1939 And having said so, he bade farewell to Garuda.
Mbh.1.34.1941 And Garuda in joy then spake unto all the snakes, Here have I brought the Amrita.
Mbh.1.34.1945 The snakes having said unto Garuda, Be it so' then went to perform their ablutions.
Mbh.1.34.1952 Thus did the illustrious Garuda bring Amrita from the heavens for the snakes, and thus were the tongues of snakes divided by what Garuda did.
Mbh.1.34.1955 That man who would listen to this story, or read it out to an assembly of good Brahmanas, must surely go to heaven, acquiring great merit from the recitation of the feats of Garuda
Mbh.1.61.2954 And Agni gave unto the son of Pritha the excellent bow Gandiva and a quiver that was inexhaustible, and a war-chariot bearing the figure of Garuda on its standard.
Mbh.1.65.3296 And the sons of Vinata were Tarkhya and Arishtanemi, and Garuda and Aruna, and Aruni and Varuni.
Mbh.1.66.3369 Garuda the son of Vinata and the mighty Aruna also, and the illustrious Vrihaspati are reckoned among the Adityas.
Mbh.1.66.3426 And Vinata had two sons Garuda and Aruna, known far and wide.
Mbh.1.102.5754 In wrath, he commanded his charioteer, saying, Lead thou my car to where Salya is, so that I may slay him instantly as Garuda slays a serpent'
Mbh.1.123.6662 And Tarkshya, Arishtanemi, Garuda, Asitadvaja, these and many other Nagas, came there, so also Aruna and Aruni of Vinata's race also came there.
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.1.153.8012 Indeed, so great was the force with which Bhima endued with the speed of Garuda or of Marut the god of wind, proceeded that the Pandavas seemed to faint in consequence.
Mbh.1.208.10263 And it stood adorned with palatial mansions and numerous gates, each furnished with a couple of panels resembling the out-stretched wings of Garuda.
Mbh.1.211.10382 Even those Rishis on earth that were crowned with ascetic success, and had their passions under complete control and were wholly engrossed in meditation of the Deity, from fear of the Asura brothers, fled like snakes at the approach of Vinata's son Garuda the snake-eater.
Mbh.1.228.11149 Then numerous birds of the Garuda tribe bearing excellent feathers, beholding that the forest was protected by Krishna and Arjuna, descended filled with pride, from the upper skies, desirous of striking those heroes with their thunderlike wings, beaks and claws.
Mbh.2.2.39 He whose banner bore the figure of Garuda, desirous of performing the rites preparatory to the commencement of a journey, purified himself by a bath and adorned his person with ornaments.
Mbh.2.2.44 Then ascending his excellent car of gold endued with great speed and adorned with banner bearing the figure of Tarkhya Garuda and furnished also with mace, discus, sword, his bow Sharnga and other weapons, and yoking thereunto his horses Saivya and Sugriva, he of eyes like lotuses set out at an excellent moment of a lunar day of auspicious stellar conjunction.
Mbh.2.2.60 Then Sauri, the son of Devaki, accompanied by his charioteer Daruka reached Dwaraka with the speed of Garuda
Mbh.2.19.834 Like other birds that can never imitate the speed of Vinata's son Garuda, the other monarchs of the earth will not be able to equal in energy this thy son, who will be endued with great valour.
Mbh.2.24.1091 And Krishna while, coming out, thought of Garuda.
Mbh.2.24.1092 And Garuda, thought of by his master, came thither in no time, like a tree of vast proportions standing in a village worshipped by all.
Mbh.2.24.1093 Garuda of immense weight of body and living upon snakes sat upon that excellent car along with the numberless open-mouthed and frightfully-roaring creatures on its flag-staff.
Mbh.2.37.1569 As the Agnihotra is the foremost among all Vedic sacrifices, as the Gayatri is the foremost among metres, as the king is the foremost among men, as the ocean is the foremost among all rivers, as the moon is the foremost among all constellations, as the sun is the foremost among all luminous bodies, as the Meru is the foremost among all mountains, as Garuda is the foremost among all birds, so as long as the upward, downward, and sideway course of the universe lasteth, Kesava is the foremost in all the worlds including the regions of the celestials.
Mbh.3.12.694 Then Bhima, possessed of mighty arms, and prowess like unto the force of the wind, comforted his illustrious mother as also his brothers, saying, Like that king of birds, Garuda, the son of Vinata, I will spring up into the air.
Mbh.3.16.823 And, O Kauravya, like unto the lord of birds Garuda, the ruler of Saubha rushed towards Dwaraka, bringing with him, O bull among men, his host equipped with all kinds of arms, skilled in all weapons, consisting of a dense display of cars and elephants and cavalry abounding in banners, and well-paid and well-fed foot-soldiers possessed of great strength and bearing every mark of heroism and furnished with wonderful chariots and bows.
Mbh.3.141.7248 Yonder is visible the glorious worshipful Suparna Garuda.
Mbh.3.159.8104 Thereat breaking the dart with the end of his mace, that mighty-armed one skilled in mace-fighting, speedily rushed to slay him, as Garuda rushed to slay a serpent.
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.3.267.12981 As a lake rid by Garuda of the mighty snake that dwells in it, as a pot drained of its contents by thirsty men, as a kingdom reft of king and prosperity, even so doth the forest of Kamyaka seem to me'
Mbh.4.2.54 What office will be performed by Arjuna who, dwelling for five years in the abode of the thousand-eyed Deity Indra shining in celestial lustre, acquired by his own energy the science of superhuman arms with all celestial weapons, and whom I regard as the tenth Rudra, the thirteenth Aditya, the ninth Vasu, and the tenth Graha, whose arms, symmetrical and long, have the skin hardened by constant strokes of the bowstring and cicatrices which resemble those on the humps of bulls, that foremost of warriors who is as Himavat among mountains, the ocean among expanses of water, Sakra among the celestial, Havya-vaha fire among the Vasus, the tiger among beasts, and Garuda among feathery tribes
Mbh.4.48.1869 A heroic and mighty car-warrior as he is, and the foremost of all wielders of weapons I shall seize the unresisting Partha, even like Garuda seizing a snake.
Mbh.4.50.1940 Inflamed with wrath upon whomsoever he will fall, even him he will overthrow like a tree under the weight of Garuda!
Mbh.4.54.2074 And rushing impetuously against Vikarna's son who was suddenly advancing against him, Kiritin attacked him fiercely like Garuda of variegated plumage swooping down upon a snake.
Mbh.5.83.3974 And enhancing the dignity of Krishna still further, Garuda, the lord of the feathery creation, came and perched on the flag-staff of that car producing a terrible rattle.
Mbh.5.101.4728 This race, O charioteer, hath multiplied from the six sons of Garuda.
Mbh.5.101.4739 These sons of Garuda that I name dwell in only a single province of this region.
Mbh.5.104.4816 O thou of great effulgence, the author of this youth, viz, my son, hath been devoured by Garuda.
Mbh.5.105.4839 SECTION CV Kanwa said, Meanwhile, O Bharata, the mighty Garuda heard what had happened, viz, the bestowal by Sakra of length of days on the Naga Sumukha.
Mbh.5.105.4841 And Garuda said, O illustrious one, disregarding me why hast thou interfered with my sustenance.
Mbh.5.105.4867 Kanwa continued, Hearing the proud words of that bird foreshadowing danger the bearer of the discus, provoking Tarkshya still more, said unto him, Though so very weak, why dost thou, O Garuda, yet regard thyself strong, O oviparous creature, it ill behoveth thee to vaunt thus in our presence.
Mbh.5.105.4874 And Garuda, felt that the weight of that one arm of Vishnu was as great as that of the entire Earth with her mountains.
Mbh.5.105.4878 With every limb weakened, and utterly confounded, Garuda was almost deprived of his senses.
Mbh.5.105.4884 Thus addressed, the illustrious Vishnu became gratified, and addressing Garuda with affection, said, Let not thy behaviour be such again'
Mbh.5.105.4886 And from that time, O king, Garuda hath ever lived in friendship with that snake.
Mbh.5.105.4887 It was thus, O king, that mighty and illustrious Garuda, the son of Vinata, afflicted by the might of Vishnu, was cured of his pride'
Mbh.5.107.4969 And while Galava was thus lamenting, his friend Garuda, the son of Vinata, appeared in his sight.
Mbh.5.107.4970 And Garuda, from desire of doing him good, cheerfully addressed him, saying, Thou art a dear friend, of mine.
Mbh.5.108.4977 SECTION CVIII Garuda said, O Galava, commanded I have been by God, who is the cause of all knowledge.
Mbh.5.109.5006 SECTION CIX Garuda continued, In days of yore, Vivaswat, having performed a sacrifice, gave this quarter away as a present Dakshina unto his preceptor, And it is for this that this region is known by the name of Dakshina south.
Mbh.5.110.5040 SECTION CX Garuda said, This quarter is the favourite one of king Varuna, the ruler of the ocean.
Mbh.5.111.5066 SECTION CXI Garuda said, O Brahmanas, since this quarter saveth from sin, and since one attaineth to salvation here, it is for this saying Uttarana power that it is called the north uttara.
Mbh.5.112.5107 SECTION CXII Galava said, O Garuda, O slayer of foremost snakes, O thou of beautiful feathers, O son of Vinata, carry me, O Tarkhya, to the east where the two eyes of Dharma are first opened.
Mbh.5.112.5113 And thereupon, the Muni Galava rode on the back of Garuda.
Mbh.5.113.5145 And Galava and Garuda both saluted her by bending their heads, and worshipped her.
Mbh.5.113.5149 And Garuda, from desire of leaving that place, upon awakening, found that his wings, had fallen off.
Mbh.5.113.5155 Thus addressed, Garuda replied unto the Brahmana, saying, Indeed, O regenerate one, I entertained the thought of carrying away this lady crowned with ascetic success from this spot to where the Creator himself, the divine Mahadeva, the eternal Vishnu, and both Virtue and Sacrifice personified, live together, for as I thought this lady should live there.
Mbh.5.113.5160 And addressing Garuda, she said, Fear not, O thou of beautiful feathers.
Mbh.5.113.5172 At these words of that lady Garuda had his wings again, and they became even stronger than before.
Mbh.5.113.5173 And then with Sandili's leave, Garuda with Galava on his back took his departure.
Mbh.5.113.5181 Hearing these words, Garuda addressed cheerless Galava who was overwhelmed with sorrow, saying, What Viswamitra said unto thee before hath now been repeated in my presence.
Mbh.5.114.5184 SECTION CXIV Narada said, Garuda then, that foremost of winged beings, addressed the cheerless Galava and said, Because it is created by Agni, in the bowels of the earth and augmented by Vayu, and because also the earth itself is said to be Hiranmaya, therefore, is wealth called Hiranya.
Mbh.5.114.5198 Talking thus, and thinking upon what was best to be done, Garuda and Galava together went to king Yayati, who was then in his capital called Pratisthana.
Mbh.5.114.5201 And thereupon Garuda answered, saying, O son of Nahusha, this ocean of asceticism, called Galava, is my friend.
Mbh.5.115.5231 Accepting that daughter in gift, Galava then, with Garuda, went away, saying, We will again see thee.
Mbh.5.115.5234 And saying this, Garuda went away to his own abode, having obtained Galava's permission.
Mbh.5.119.5319 Galava, however, hearing the words spoken by Garuda informed him that a fourth part of the task was still un-finished'
Mbh.5.119.5320 Garuda then, that foremost of all speakers, said unto Galava, Do not make any endeavour to obtain the remaining two hundred, for it will not succeed.
Mbh.5.119.5331 Galava then, saying, So be it' and taking with him both the maiden and the steeds, went with Garuda in his company unto Viswamitra.
Mbh.5.119.5349 Saying this, Galava dismissed Garuda that devourer of snakes, and returning the maiden unto her father himself went into the woods
Mbh.6.3.244 Vinata's son Garuda, O Bharata, beholding even a large concourse of birds, asketh not the aid of many followers to vanquish them.
Mbh.6.8.456 There, O king, liveth that foremost of birds named Garuda.
Mbh.6.56.2970 And the son of Santanu, the old Kuru grandsire, desirous of victory to thy sons, formed that mighty array known after the name of Garuda.
Mbh.6.56.2971 And on the beak of that Garuda was thy sire Devavrata himself.
Mbh.6.64.3452 Then the heroic and mighty Bhimasena of strong arms, beholding thy sons, licking the corners of his mouth like a wolf in the midst of smaller creatures, fell upon them with the impetuosity of Garuda.
Mbh.6.84.4436 That shaft endued with the impetuosity of Garuda himself, shot by him, pierced the ruler of the Madras through, and fell on the earth.
Mbh.6.91.4758 Her husband having been slain by Garuda, she became helpless, and of cheerless soul.
Mbh.6.91.4831 While being covered by those Nagas, that bull among Rakshasas reflected for a moment, and assuming the form of Garuda, he devoured those snakes.
Mbh.6.94.4941 Quickly then he soared up into the firmament like Garuda.
Mbh.6.123.6825 As human beings are, in this world, foremost of all creatures, as Garuda is the foremost of all winged creatures; as the Ocean is the foremost among all receptacles of water and the cow among all quadrupeds; as the Sun is the foremost amongst all luminous bodies and Himavat among all mountains; as the Brahmana is the foremost among all castes, art thou the foremost of all bowmen!
Mbh.7.14.632 And as regards Paurava himself, Abhimanyu raised him up, like the Garuda raising a snake from the bottom of the sea agitating the waters.
Mbh.7.14.651 Thereupon, Arjuna's son, jumping up, caught hold of that dart, like Garuda catching a mighty snake falling from above.
Mbh.7.16.717 The bodies of those heroes of immeasurable energy then seemed, in consequence of the wrath that inspired them, to resemble those of Garuda and mighty Nagas battling in the sky.
Mbh.7.20.892 Seeing that Drona had arrayed his forces in the form of a Garuda, Yudhishthira disposed his troops in counter array in the form of a semi-circle.
Mbh.7.20.893 In the mouth of that Garuda was the mighty car-warrior Drona himself.
Mbh.7.20.895 And Kritavarman and the illustrious Kripa formed the two eyes of that Garuda.
Mbh.7.20.900 In the back of that Garuda were the Kalingas, the Amvashthas, the Magadhas, the Paundras, the Madrakas, the Gandharas, the Sakunas, the Easterners, the Mountaineers, and the Vasatis.
Mbh.7.26.1365 Indeed, the son of Pandu, overwhelming the hostile host by means of his arrows, came upon the king of the Pragjyotishas, O monarch, like Garuda swooping down upon his prey.
Mbh.7.30.1622 Then Bhima, jumping down from his own car, like a second Garuda, slew with his excellent sword five and ten combatants amongst those that supported Karna.
Mbh.7.34.1785 And with those arms dyed with gore and looking bright the field of battle became beautiful, as if strewn, O sire, with five-headed snakes slain by Garuda.
Mbh.7.35.1833 Borne by his well-broken steeds, endued with the speed of Garuda or the Wind, and thoroughly obedient to the behests of him who held their reins, he quickly checked the heir of Asmaka.
Mbh.7.46.2208 Displaying great strength and great activity, and describing the tracks called Kausika and others, the son of Arjuna fiercely coursed through the sky, like the prince of winged creatures viz, Garuda.
Mbh.7.71.3100 Endued as he was with thy energy, aided by that knowledge of weapons which he derived from thee, that child then penetrated unto that array, like Garuda penetrating into the ocean.
Mbh.7.74.3231 If the Siddhas, the Rudras, the Vasus, with the Aswins, the Maruts with Indra: at their head the Viswadevas with other gods, the Pitris, the Gandharvas, Garuda, the Ocean, the mountains, the firmament, Heaven, Earth, the point of the compass cardinal and subsidiary, and the regents of those points, all the creatures that are domestic and all that are wild, in fact if all the mobile and the immobile beings together, become the protectors of the ruler of the Sindhus, yet, O slayer of Madhu, shalt thou behold Jayadratha slain by me tomorrow in battle with my arrows!
Mbh.7.77.3390 O Suta, making room on the terrace of my car for my standard and for the heroic Garuda thereon, that adorns my umbrella, and yoking thereto my foremost of steeds named Valahaka and Meghapushpa and Saivya and Sugriva, having cased them in golden mail of the splendour of the sun and fire, and thyself putting on thy armour, stay on it carefully.
Mbh.7.78.3401 Unto that ape-bannered hero, burning with grief and immersed in thought Kesava, having Garuda on his banner, appeared in a dream.
Mbh.7.96.4409 Hrishikesa proceeded, borne by those yoke-bearing steeds endued with the speed of Garuda or the wind, with such speed that he caused the whole universe to wonder at it.
Mbh.7.106.4947 He then took him up from the car, like Garuda taking up a snake.
Mbh.7.122.6018 Both those missiles, thus cut off, fell down on the earth, like a couple of snakes mangled and torn by Garuda.
Mbh.7.125.6233 The son of Kunti, routing in battle those valorous foes of his, impetuously crossed that force like Garuda of beautiful feathers.
Mbh.7.131.6559 Then Bhima pierced the Suta's son in return with three shafts endued with the impetuosity of Garuda and he pierced the latter's charioteer also with seven.
Mbh.7.136.6809 All the Kurus and the Charanas highly applauded that attempt of Bhima of snatching Karna away from his car, like Garuda snatching away a snake.
Mbh.7.136.6862 That shaft shot from Gandiva, like Garuda in the welkin in quest of a mighty snake, quickly coursed towards Karna.
Mbh.7.140.7088 Go thou then, without delay, into those pure, regions of mine that incessantly blaze forth with splendour and that are desired by the foremost of deities with Brahma as their head, and becoming equal to myself, be thou borne on the back to Garuda'
Mbh.7.172.9317 Becoming fire and ocean, and, once more, Garuda and Takshaka, and once again, a cloud and a tempest, and then thunder and a large mountain, and once again, an elephant and then Rahu and the sun, they thus displayed a hundred different kinds of illusion, solicitous of destroying each other.
Mbh.7.189.10452 Though deprived of his car, still that foremost of all swordsmen, armed with his sword, sprang towards Drona, O monarch, like Vinata's son Garuda making a swoop at a snake.
Mbh.7.198.11237 From all the points of the compass, cardinal and subsidiary, from the firmament and the very earth, showers of sharp and fierce arrows fell and issued with the impetuosity of Garuda or the wind.
Mbh.8.12.464 With those writhing arms adorned with red fingers and palms, the Earth looked resplendent as if strewn with fierce five-headed snakes slain by Garuda.
Mbh.8.18.728 Turning the course of the car, but without stopping the steeds which were as fleet as Garuda or the wind, Keshava, addressing Arjuna, said, The chief of the Magadhas, with his foe-crushing elephant is unrivalled in prowess.
Mbh.8.20.865 Those long and well-rounded arms of the king, smeared with excellent sandal-paste, and adorned with gold and pearls and gems and diamonds falling upon the Earth, began to writhe like a couple of snakes slain by Garuda.
Mbh.8.25.1090 Aided by his skill and might, Sutasoma cut off even these with his scimitar, displaying his great activity, and possessed as he was of prowess equal to that of Garuda himself.
Mbh.8.27.1150 Those warriors in hundreds of thousands, approaching Arjuna, seemed to melt away like snakes at sight of Garuda.
Mbh.8.41.2157 It chanced that once certain swans of cheerful hearts, of great speed and capable of going everywhere at will and equal unto Garuda himself in range and speed of flight, came to that side of the ocean.
Mbh.8.41.2218 Overcome with weakness, the crow then, casting his eyes upwards at the swan, and seeking to gratify him, replied, saying, Proud of the remains of others' dishes upon which I fed, I had, O swan, regarded myself as the equal of Garuda and disregarded all crows and many other birds.
Mbh.8.56.3205 Like Garuda falling upon a large number of snakes, the son of Adhiratha, singlehanded, fell upon all those Cedis and Pancalas and Pandavas in that encounter.
Mbh.8.59.3420 The impetuosity of that high-souled one, as he rushed towards his foe, resembled that of Garuda swooping down for seizing a large snake.
Mbh.8.65.3806 Then Hrishikesha proceeded with very great speed to the spot where king Yudhishthira was, O king, borne by those steeds that resembled Garuda, having stationed Bhima, that chastiser of foes, at the head of the army and having commanded him, O monarch, to fight with the samsaptakas.
Mbh.8.77.4654 Loud was the noise with which Arjuna faced his foes, like that made by Garuda in days of yore when swooping down for snakes.
Mbh.8.87.5365 Endued with great impetuosity, the Ape, darting forward, struck the elephant's rope with his nails and teeth, like Garuda falling upon a snake.
Mbh.8.89.5497 Possessed of great might and great energy, those impetuous and keen shafts equipped with vulturine feathers piercing all the limbs, the steeds, the bow, the yoke, the wheels, and the standard of Karna, quickly penetrated into them like snakes frightened by Garuda penetrating into the earth.
Mbh.8.90.5686 Thus addressed by the slayer of Madhu, the wielder of Gandiva, that bowman who was always fierce unto foes, enquired of him, saying, Who is that snake that advanceth of his own accord against me, as if, indeed he advanceth right against the mouth of Garuda
Mbh.9.6.376 Possessed of beautiful limbs, of head well covered, of a neck adorned with three lines like those in a conch shell, of sweet speech, of eyes resembling the petals of a full blown lotus, and of a face like that of the dignity of Meru, resembling the bull of Mahadeva as regards neck, eyes, tread, and voice, endued with arms that were large, massive, and well-joined, having a chest that was broad and well-formed, equal unto Garuda or the wind in speed and might, gifted with a splendour like that of the rays of the Sun, rivalling Usanas himself in intelligence and the Moon in beauty and form and charms of face, with a body that seemed to be made of a number of golden lotuses, with well-made joints, of well-formed thighs and waist and hips, of beautiful fingers, and beautiful nails, he seemed to have been made by the Creator with care after collecting one after another all the beautiful and good attributes of creation.
Mbh.9.43.3095 The diverse gods, Indra and Vishnu, both of great energy, and Surya and Candramas, and Dhatri, and Vidhatri, and Vayu, and Agni, and Pushan, and Bhaga, and Aryaman, and Ansa, and Vivaswat, and Rudra of great intelligence, and Mitra, and the eleven Rudras, the eight Vasus, the twelve Adityas, the twin Ashvinis, the Viswedevas, the Maruts, the Saddhyas, the Pitris, the Gandharvas, the Apsaras, the Yakshas, the Rakshasas, the Pannagas, innumerable celestial Rishis, the Vaikhanasas, the Valakhilyas, those others among Rishis that subsist only on air and those that subsist on the rays of the Sun, the descendants of Bhrigu and Angiras, many high-souled Yatis, all the Vidyadharas, all those that were crowned with ascetic success, the Grandsire, Pulastya, Pulaha of great ascetic merits, Angiras, Kasyapa, Atri, Marichi, Bhrigu, Kratu, Hara, Prachetas, Manu, Daksha, the Seasons, the Planets, and all the luminaries; O monarch, all the rivers in their embodied forms, the eternal Vedas, the Seas, the diverse tirthas, the Earth, the Sky, the Cardinal and Subsidiary points of the compass, and all the Trees, O king, Aditi the mother of the gods, Hri, Sri, Swaha, Sarasvati, Uma, Sachi, Sinivali, Anumati, Kuhu, the Day of the new moon, the Day of the full Moon, the wives of the denizens of heaven, Himavat, Vindhya, Meru of many summits, Airavat with all his followers, the Divisions of time called Kala, Kashtha, Fortnight, the Seasons, Night, and Day, O king, the prince of steeds, Ucchaisravas, Vasuki the king of the Snakes, Aruna, Garuda, the Trees, the deciduous herbs, and the adorable god Dharma, all came there together.
Mbh.9.43.3150 The faces of some resembled those of Garuda and the rhinoceros and the wolf.
Mbh.9.44.3269 Garuda gave him his favourite son, a peacock of beautiful feathers.
Mbh.9.53.3823 Clad in armour, and armed with his mace of gigantic thickness, Bhima, O monarch, assumed the form of the mighty Garuda.
Mbh.10.1.54 And the speed with which it came resembled that of Garuda.
Mbh.10.13.885 Upon that standard was Vinata's son Garuda shining with great splendour.
Mbh.12.43.2172 Thou art the great Boar, thou art Fire, thou art the Sun, thou hast the bull for the device on thy banner, and thou hast Garuda also as thy device.
Mbh.12.43.2183 Thou art Sacrifice embodied, thou art Dhruva thou art Garuda, and thou art called Yajnasena.
Mbh.12.46.2288 That foremost of vehicles, adorned with gold, decked with a profusion of emeralds, and moon-gems and sun-gems, furnished with wheels covered with gold, possessed of effulgence, fleet as the wind, set in the middle with diverse other kinds of jewels, beautiful as the morning sun, equipped with a beautiful standard topped by Garuda, and gay with numerous banners, had those foremost of steeds, fleet as thought, viz, Sugriva and Saivya and the other two, in trappings of gold, yoked unto it.
Mbh.12.100.5617 They that have greenish hair ending in curls, that have flanks, cheeks, and faces fat and full of flesh, that have elevated shoulders and broad necks, that have fearful visages and fat calves, that are fiery like Vasudeva's horse Sugriva or like the offspring of Garuda, the son of Vinata, that have round heads, large mouths, faces like those of cats, shrill voice and wrathful temper, that rush to battle, guided by its din, that are wicked in behaviour and full of haughtiness, that are of terrible countenances, and that live in the outlying districts, are all reckless of their lives and never flyaway from battle.
Mbh.12.227.14003 Riding upon Vishnu's vehicle adorned with Garuda and Surya himself, that object blazed forth with unrivalled splendour, and seemed to illumine the three worlds.
Mbh.12.284.17682 Thou art the tiger among the lower animals, thou art Garuda among birds, and thou art Ananta among snakes.
Mbh.12.301.18863 Comprehending with the aid of knowledge that all objects exist with faults, indeed, understanding that the objects, so difficult to cast off, with which human beings and Pisachas and Rakshasas and Yakshas and snakes and Gandharvas and pitris and those that are wandering in the intermediate orders of beings such as birds and animals and great birds such as Garuda and others and the Maruts and royal sages and regenerate sages and Asuras and Viswedevas and the celestial Rishis and Yogins invested with supreme puissance and the Prajapatis and Brahman himself are engaged, and understanding truly what the highest limit is of one's period of existence in this world, and apprehending also the great truth.
Mbh.12.327.20791 The prince of birds, viz, Garuda, dwelt on that summit constantly.
Mbh.12.332.21236 As that foremost of regenerate ones, possessed of effulgence like that of Garuda, was traversing through the skies with the speed of the wind or thought, all creatures, cast their eyes upon him.
Mbh.12.337.21677 The illustrious Vishnu, that giver of boons, then addressing Garuda of great speed, that foremost of birds, who waited upon Him as his servant, said these desirable words, O foremost of birds, O thou that art highly blessed, listen to what I say!
Mbh.12.337.21682 At my command, O Garuda, go to that foremost of kings, viz, Uparichara who is now dwelling in a whole of the Earth and incapable of any longer sailing through the sky, and bring him up without delay into the welkin.
Mbh.12.337.21683 Hearing these words of Vishnu, Garuda, spreading his wings and rushing with the speed of the wind, entered that hole in the Earth in which king Vasu was living.
Mbh.13.11.710 Thus addressed by the princess, the goddess of prosperity, with a face as beautiful as the moon, and moved by grace, in the presence of him who has Garuda on his banner, said these words in reply that were sweet and charming'
Mbh.13.14.912 Having obtained the permission of all of them, I thought of Garuda.
Mbh.13.14.1396 Among the Adityas thou art Vishnu Upendra, among the Vasu thou art Pavaka, among birds thou art the son of Vinata Garuda, and among snakes thou art Ananta Sesha.
Mbh.13.17.2059 Thou art the prince of birds, being Garuda the son of Vinata and Kasyapa.
Mbh.13.17.2293 Thou art Garuda, the prince of birds, born of Vinata by Kasyapa, otherwise called Tarkshya.
Mbh.13.17.2462 Thou art the prince of all winged creatures, being, as thou art, of the form of Garuda.
Mbh.13.26.3554 As snakes become deprived of their poison at the very sight of Garuda, even so one becomes cleansed of all one's sins at the very sight of the sacred stream of Ganga.
Mbh.13.86.7950 Garuda of excellent feathers gave unto him a child of his, viz, a peacock endued with plumes of variegated hue.
Mbh.13.147.12276 He has the enemy of the snakes viz, Garuda sitting on his standard.
Mbh.13.147.12360 Once on a time the mighty Garuda, the son of Kasyapa, was addressed by the deities in these words, Do thou, O puissant one, see if this one has any end'
Mbh.13.147.12361 Though possessed of great energy and might, Garuda, however, failed to find out the end of this illustrious one who is identical with the Supreme Soul.
