Mbh.13.90.8105 He who performs Sraddhas for feeding only his friends and whose Havi does not gratify the deities and the Pitris, fails to ascend to Heaven.
Mbh.13.91.8196 These all should be excluded by persons possessed of wisdom from the place where a Sraddha is being performed' Having said these words in days of old unto the Rishi Nimi of his own race, the illustrious Atri possessed of wealth of penances then went back to the Grandsire's assembly in Heaven
Mbh.13.94.8664 Freed from stains and evil of every kind, and endued with merit, he is sure to attain to Heaven.

Mbh.13.100.8965 Having said this, Bhrigu of unfading glory and mighty energy entered into the matted locks of Agastya who stood still like a wooden post for hurling king Nahusha from the throne of Heaven.

Mbh.13.106.9691 Such a person enjoys all kinds of happiness in Heaven for fifty thousand years.

Mbh.13.107.9836 That man who having fasted for six and twenty days eats a single meal on the twenty-seventh day and bears himself in this way for a full year, pouring libations every day on his sacred fire, acquires great merit and proceeding to Heaven receives honours from the deities.
Mbh.13.109.9913 By observing a fast for the twelfth lunar day of the month Sravana and worshipping Krishna for day and night as Sridhara, one attains to the merits of the sacrifice called Panchayajna and acquires a beautiful car in Heaven whereon he sports in joy.
Mbh.13.112.10169 King Rantideva, in days of old, proceeded to Heaven by making gifts of food.
Mbh.13.113.10214 Vaisampayana continued, The preceptor of the deities, possessed of great intelligence, having said this unto king Yudhishthira the just, ascended upwards for proceeding to Heaven, before our eyes
Mbh.13.115.10304 High Rishis devoted to the observance of vows and self-restraint have said that abstention from meat is worthy of every praise, productive of fame and Heaven, and a great propitiation by itself.
Mbh.13.116.10424 That man, O king, who abstains from every kind of meat from his birth, without doubt, acquires a large space in Heaven, They who eat the flesh of animals who are desirous of life, are themselves eaten by the animals they eat, without doubt.
Mbh.13.140.11490 It was exceedingly beautiful, resembling Heaven itself.

Mbh.13.142.11875 Indeed, that righteous souled person lives happily in Heaven, with the deities as his companions.

Mbh.13.144.12009 Those men who are devoted to their own spouses and who seek them only in their seasons, and who turn themselves away from indulgence in sexual pleasure, succeed in ascending to Heaven Conduct marked by charity and penances, and characterised by righteousness of deeds and purity of both body and heart, should be followed by those that are wise for the sake of adding to their merit or for earning their means of subsistence.

Mbh.13.144.12028 Those men who do not seek even mentally, to take what belongs to others even when they see it lying in a lone forest, succeed in ascending to Heaven.

Mbh.13.144.12037 All these men, O goddess, succeed in ascending to Heaven through the meritorious consequences of their deeds.
Mbh.13.144.12057 The man who is endued with cruelty, goes to Hell, while he that is endued with compassion ascends to Heaven.
Mbh.13.145.12066 SECTION CXLV Uma said, By what disposition, what conduct, what acts, and what gifts, does a man succeed in attaining to Heaven'
Mbh.13.145.12067 Maheswara said, He who is endued with a liberal disposition, who honours Brahmanas and treats them with hospitality, who makes gifts of food and drink and robes and other articles of enjoyment unto the destitute, the blind, and the distressed, who makes gifts of houses, erects halls for use of the public, digs wells, constructs shelters whence pure and cool water is distributed during the hot months unto thirsty travellers, excavates tanks, makes arrangements for the free distribution of gifts every day, gives to all seekers what each solicits, who makes gifts of seats and beds and conveyances, wealth, jewels and gems, houses, all kinds of corn, kine, fields, and women, verily, he who always makes these gifts with a cheerful heart, becomes a denizen, O goddess, of Heaven.
Mbh.13.145.12070 After the exhaustion of his merits he falls down from Heaven and takes birth in the order of humanity, in a family, O goddess, that is possessed of wealth in abundance and that has a large command of every article of enjoyments.
Mbh.13.145.12095 He who is not arrogant or filled with pride, who is a worshipper of the deities and Brahmanas, who enjoys the respect of the world, who bows to every one that deserves his reverence, who utters smooth and sweet words, who benefits persons of all orders, who is always devoted to the good of all beings, who does not feel aversion for anybody, who is sweet-tongued, who is an utterer of agreeable and cooling words, who gives way to one that deserves to have way, who adores his preceptors in the manner in which preceptors deserve to be adored, who welcomes all creatures with proper courtesy, who does not hear ill will towards any creature, who lives, worshipping seniors and guests with such honours as they deserve, who is ever bent upon securing as many guests as possible, and who worships all who honour his house with their presence, succeeds, O goddess, in ascending to Heaven.
Mbh.13.145.12112 One who is endued with such practices and conduct certainly ascend to Heaven.
Mbh.13.145.12128 Maheswara said, Those men that always enquire, about what is for their benefit and what is to their detriment, Brahmanas learned in the Vedas, crowned with success, and conversant with all duties, that avoid all kinds of evil deeds and achieve only such deeds as are good, succeed in ascending to Heaven after departing from this world and enjoy great happiness as long as they live here.
Mbh.13.145.12137 Maheswara said, That man who is desirous of ascertaining what is righteousness, and who wishes to acquire prominent virtues and accomplishments, and who always puts questions to the Brahmanas with a view to find out the path that leads to his highest good, succeed in ascending to Heaven.
Mbh.13.146.12190 and this celestial River who has in her all the sacred Tirthas, viz, the goddess Ganga, who having her rise in Heaven hath descended on the Earth and is regarded as the foremost of all streams; Having said this, the spouse of that god of gods, that foremost of all righteous persons, smilingly addressed all those Rivers of her sex.
Mbh.13.146.12195 I do not see any branch of knowledge on Earth or Heaven that is capable of being mastered by any unaided individual.
Mbh.13.146.12207 Thou art possessed of spiritual insight, Thou art the foremost of all denizens in Heaven.
Mbh.13.146.12228 Devotion to her lord is woman's merit; it is her penance; it is her eternal Heaven.
Mbh.13.146.12229 Merit, penances, and Heaven become hers who looks upon her husband as her all in all, and who, endued with chastity, seeks to devote herself to her lord in all things.
Mbh.13.146.12233 The husband's grace and Heaven, are equal in the estimation of a woman; or, if unequal, the inequality is very trivial.
Mbh.13.146.12234 O Maheswara, I do not desire Heaven itself if thou are not satisfied with me.
Mbh.13.147.12330 That man who will seek the protection of Kesava will succeed in earning great achievements and victory and Heaven.
Mbh.13.147.12337 The illustrious Hari, the puissant Narayana, is verily, the foremost of all beings in Heaven.
Mbh.13.148.12392 O puissant one, Heaven itself cannot rejoice us so much as a right of Thyself Everything that was said by the illustrious Bhava regarding Thyself is true.
Mbh.13.148.12465 Departing from this world he will ascend to Heaven.
Mbh.13.149.12530 He that took birth as a dwarf from Aditi by her husband Kasyapa in order to beguile the Asura king Vali of the sovereignty of the three worlds, and bestow the same upon Indra who had been dispossessed of it, He that is tall in allusion to the vast universal form of His which He assumed at the sacrifice of Vali for covering Heaven, Earth, and the Nether regions with three steps of His.

Mbh.13.155.12967 Even thus were the denizens of Heaven, with Indra at their head, rescued from great distress by Vasishtha, It was thus that those Danavas, who had received boons from Brahman, were slain by that high-souled Rishi.
Mbh.13.164.13669 Heaven is not eternal
Mbh.14.16.433 One day, those two listlessly proceeded to a particular part of the palace that looked, O king, like a veritable portion of Heaven.
Mbh.14.16.453 O chastiser of foes, on one occasion, a Brahmana came to us from the regions of Heaven.
Mbh.14.16.480 The ascetic crowned with success said, By diverse acts, O son, as also by the aid of merit, mortal creatures attain to diverse ends here and residence in Heaven.
Mbh.14.17.583 There, in Heaven itself, is distinction of inferior, superior, and middling felicity.
Mbh.14.17.584 There, in Heaven itself, is discontent at sight of prosperity more blazing than one's own.
Mbh.14.33.1318 Of sovereignty over the whole Earth or over Heaven on the one hand, or this knowledge of my identity with the universe, this knowledge is my wealth
Mbh.14.36.1485 Verily, they go to Heaven.
Mbh.14.38.1516 Casting off all sins and freed from grief, those men possessed of wisdom attain to Heaven and create diverse bodies for themselves.
Mbh.14.38.1517 Attaining the power of governing everything, self-restraint, minuteness, these high-souled ones make by operations of their own mind, like the gods themselves dwelling in Heaven.
Mbh.14.38.1520 Attaining to Heaven, they modify all things by their very nature.
Mbh.14.42.1707 He who has subjugated these in this world, viz, the three qualities and the five constituent elements of the body, has the Highest for his seat in Heaven.
Mbh.14.45.1898 The learned Brahmana of pure heart, who observes the domestic mode of life and practises rigid vows, thus devoted and thus discharging all duties to the best of his power, succeeds in conquering Heaven
Mbh.14.46.1909 With vital seed drawn up and mind concentrated, one that is thus devoted succeeds in conquering Heaven.
Mbh.14.46.1924 With body always in a state of purity, endued with cleverness, ever dwelling in the forest, with concentrated mind, and senses in subjection, a forest-recluse, thus devoting himself, would conquer Heaven.
Mbh.14.46.1987 The senses, the objects of the senses, the five great elements, mind, understanding, egoism, the unmanifest, Purusha also, after comprehending these duly with the aid of correct inferences, one attains to Heaven, released from all bonds.
Mbh.14.51.2207 In like manner, the deities, endued with great powers of illusion, have attained to Heaven.
Mbh.14.52.2277 Thou createst the Earth, the Welkin, and Heaven, O slayer of Madhu.
Mbh.14.52.2350 Then that grinder of hostile masses, viz, Janarddana of great prowess, accompanied by Satyaki, the foremost one of Sini's race, proceeded to the city of the Anarttas, after having slain all his foes, like He of a hundred sacrifices proceeding to Heaven after slaughtering all his foes'
Mbh.14.54.2427 Possessed as they were of unrighteousness, and assailed by the virtue of Time, all of them have been righteously slain in battle, and have, without doubt, gone to Heaven.
Mbh.14.58.2624 Indeed, O foremost of all persons having of a high goal, I do not behold any other refuge for myself in the matter of approaching the gates of Heaven, or in continuing here, O best of regenerate ones.
Mbh.14.59.2730 Equipt with those mansions, that mountain shone like a second Heaven.
Mbh.14.60.2787 Many kings of Earth, slain therein, have ascended to Heaven'
Mbh.14.61.2816 Without doubt, he has gone to Heaven.
Mbh.14.61.2819 He by whom Drona and Karna and others were checked in battle, heroes that were equal to Indra himself in might, why would not he ascend to Heaven?
Mbh.14.62.2855 Vasudeva also performed those rites for the ascension to Heaven of his high-souled nephew, that hero who was ever the darling of his sire Vasudeva.
Mbh.14.77.3361 The seven celestial Rishis, as also the other Rishis of Heaven, penetrated with fear, and afflicted with grief and sorrow, breathed hot sighs.
Mbh.14.77.3372 When at last the energy of Partha blazed forth through those acts of the denizens of Heaven, that hero, who was conversant with celestial weapons of high efficacy, stood immovable like a hill.
Mbh.14.88.3942 Adorned with fine cloths supplied by the royal sage, those stakes shone there like Indra and the deities with the seven celestial Rishis standing around them in Heaven.
Mbh.14.89.3985 Having paid that wealth as the price of the Earth, Yudhishthira, cleansed of his sins and assured of Heaven rejoiced with his brothers.
Mbh.14.89.3992 King Yudhishthira, having bathed at the conclusion of his sacrifice and become cleansed of all his sins, shone in the midst of his brothers, honoured by all, like the chief of the celestials in the midst of the denizens of Heaven.
Mbh.14.90.4050 In consequence of that incident he attained to Heaven, ye regenerate ones, along with his wife and son and daughter-in-law.
Mbh.14.90.4103 Truth, pleasure, religious merit, and Heaven as acquirable, by good qualities, of women, as also all the objects of their desire, O foremost of regenerate ones, are dependent on the husband.
Mbh.14.90.4177 Verily, this gift of thine is being bruited about in Heaven by the denizens of that happy region.
Mbh.14.90.4181 O foremost of regenerate persons, go to Heaven.
Mbh.14.90.4184 For thy Brahmacharyya, thy gifts, thy sacrifices, thy penances, and thy acts of piety done with a pure heart, go thou to Heaven.
Mbh.14.90.4187 Since thou hast made this gift, in a season of great difficulty, with a pure heart, thou hast, by this act of thine, conquered Heaven.
Mbh.14.90.4190 He, therefore, that conquers hunger conquers Heaven without doubt.
Mbh.14.90.4197 The door of Heaven is very difficult to see.
Mbh.14.90.4205 Through this gift, O learned Brahmana, he went to Heaven.
Mbh.14.90.4209 Usinara's son Sivi of excellent vows, by giving away the flesh of his own body, is rejoicing in Heaven, having attained to the regions of the righteous.
Mbh.14.90.4214 Through cupidity one fails to go to Heaven.
Mbh.14.90.4215 One conversant with the merits of gift, and leading a just course of conduct succeeds, through penances, in enjoying Heaven.
Mbh.14.90.4224 With thy wife, thy son, and thy daughter-in-law, go now to Heaven,
Mbh.14.90.4225 After the deity of Righteousness had said these words, that Brahmana, with his wife, son and daughter-in-law, proceeded to Heaven.
Mbh.14.90.4226 After that learned Brahmana, conversant with all duties, had thus ascended to Heaven with his son, daughter-in-law, and wife numbering the fourth, I came out of my hole.
Mbh.14.90.4239 Millions of Rishis have ascended to Heaven with the aid of only their penances.
Mbh.14.91.4247 Innumerable kings, O best of regenerate persons, having worshipped the deities in sacrifices, earned high fame here and obtained Heaven hereafter.
Mbh.14.91.4287 Men endued with wealth of penances, by giving away, to the best of their power, grains of corn picked up from the fields or roots or fruits or pot-herbs or water or leaves, acquire great merit and proceed to Heaven.
Mbh.14.91.4291 Those amongst Brahmanas and Kshatriyas and Vaisyas and Sudras who betake themselves to penances, O Bharata, and who purify themselves by gifts and other acts of righteousness, proceed to Heaven
Mbh.14.92.4292 SECTION XCII Janamejaya said, If, O illustrious one, Heaven is the fruit of wealth acquired by lawful means, do thou discourse to me fully on it.
Mbh.14.92.4335 Let Heaven, and all those who have Heaven for their home, and Dharma himself, come hither,
Mbh.15.7.385 The king, O monarch, by behaving duly according to these ways, attains to Heaven hereafter, after ruling his subjects righteously in this world.
Mbh.15.7.389 Thou shalt, by conducting thyself in this way, become dear to thy subjects and attain to felicity in Heaven.
Mbh.15.8.393 Bhishma has ascended to Heaven.
Mbh.15.20.807 That king also, by his penances proceeded from the Earth to Heaven.
Mbh.15.20.810 Having undergone penances in this very forest, that ruler of Earth proceeded to Heaven.
Mbh.15.20.812 He too underwent severe austerities in this forest and then ascended to Heaven.
Mbh.15.20.821 Sanjaya also, through meditation, will ascend from this world into Heaven'
Mbh.15.25.963 This lady, of eyes as expansive as lotus petals, who seems to have touched the middle age of life, whose complexion resembles that of the blue lotus, and who looks like a goddess of Heaven, is Krishna, the embodied form of the goddess of prosperity
Mbh.15.31.1281 Thus, O thou of great wisdom, the deities had taken birth as human beings, and after having accomplished their purposes have gone back to Heaven.
Mbh.15.33.1319 All of them were happy of hearts and looked like gods moving in Heaven.
Mbh.15.33.1327 Indeed, the Kshatriya warriors, in consequence of the happiness they felt, regarded that place as Heaven itself.
Mbh.15.35.1403 King Janamejaya beheld his royal father, possessed of great beauty, brought down from Heaven, in the same form that he had and of the same age as he was at the time of leaving this world.
Mbh.16.4.181 When he reached Heaven, Vasava and the twin Ashvinis and Rudra and the Adityas and the Vasus and the Viswedevas, and Munis and Siddhas and many foremost ones among the Gandharvas, with the Apsaras, advanced to receive him.
Mbh.16.4.182 Then, O king, the illustrious Narayana of fierce energy, the Creator and Destroyer of all, that preceptor of Yoga, filling Heaven with his splendour, reached his own inconceivable region.
Mbh.16.8.363 Arjuna said, He whose complexion was like that of a newly-risen cloud, he whose eyes were like a pair of large lotus petals, Krishna, has, with Rama, cast off his body and ascended to Heaven.
Mbh.17.1.4 Janamejaya said: Having heard of that encounter with iron bolts between the heroes of the Vrishni and the Andhaka races, and having been informed also of Krishnas ascension to Heaven, what did the Pandavas do
Mbh.17.3.121 Without them by me I do not wish to go to Heaven, O lord of all the deities.
Mbh.17.3.124 Shakra said, Thou shalt behold thy brothers in Heaven.
Mbh.17.3.133 Shakra said, Immortality and a condition equal to mine, O king, prosperity extending in all directions, and high success, and all the felicities of Heaven, thou hast won today.
Mbh.17.3.139 Indra said, There is no place in Heaven for persons with dogs.
Mbh.17.3.168 O king, there is no one in Heaven that is equal to thee.
Mbh.17.3.171 Vaishampayana continued: Then Dharma, and Shakra, and the Maruts, and the Ashvinis, and other deities, and the celestial Rishis, causing Yudhishthira to ascend on a car, proceeded to Heaven.
Mbh.17.3.175 Covering all the worlds by his fame and splendour and by his wealth of conduct, he has attained to Heaven in his own human body.
Mbh.17.3.184 This is Heaven.
Mbh.18.1.4 Janamejaya said, Having attained to Heaven, what regions were respectively attained by my grandsires of old, viz, the Pandavas and the sons of Dhritarashtra?
Mbh.18.1.7 Vaishampayana said, Listen now to what thy grandsires, Yudhishthira and others, did after having attained to Heaven, that place of the deities.
Mbh.18.1.8 Arrived at Heaven, king Yudhishthira the just, beheld Duryodhana endued with prosperity and seated on an excellent seat.
Mbh.18.1.18 While residing in Heaven, all enmities cease.
Mbh.18.1.22 He is worshipped with the gods by those righteous men and those foremost of kings who are now denizens of Heaven.
Mbh.18.1.31 This is Heaven, O lord of men.
Mbh.18.2.52 Ye foremost ones among the deities, what is Heaven to me if I am dissociated from my brothers?
Mbh.18.2.53 That is Heaven where those brothers of mine are.
Mbh.18.2.54 This, in my opinion, is not Heaven.
Mbh.18.2.79 The denizens of Heaven commanded me that having come thus far, I am to stop.
Mbh.18.3.131 The Maruts, with Indra, the Vasus with the twin Ashvinis, the Sadhyas, the Rudras, the Adityas, and the other denizens of Heaven, as also the Siddhas and the great Rishis, all came there where Dharmas royal son of great energy was.
Mbh.18.3.140 He, on the other hand, who first endures Hell, must afterwards enjoy Heaven.
Mbh.18.3.141 He whose sinful acts are many enjoys Heaven first.
Mbh.18.3.147 All those kings who had aided thee and who have been slain in battle, have all attained to Heaven.
Mbh.18.4.205 Having attained to Heaven, she was sitting there, endued with a form possessed of solar splendour.
Mbh.18.4.227 Having cast off their bodies, they have conquered Heaven by the merit they had acquired through word, thought and deed.
