MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.30.1754 Sauti continued, Those ascetics thus addressed by the illustrious Kasyapa, abandoned that bough and went to the sacred mountain of Himavat for purposes of ascetic penances.
Mbh.1.36.1976 He practised these ascetic devotions, repairing to Gandhamadana, Vadri, Gokarna, the woods of Pushkara, and the foot of Himavat.
Mbh.1.72.3801 And Menaka as her conception advanced went to the banks of the river Malini coursing along a valley of the charming mountains of Himavat.
Mbh.1.74.3994 That celebrated Apsara, Menaka, brought me forth in a valley of Himavat.
Mbh.1.74.4002 Destitute of all affection, the lewd Menaka is thy mother, and she cast thee off on the surface of the Himavat as one throws away, after the worship is over, the flowery offering made to his gods.
Mbh.1.114.6214 And fixing his abode in a delightful and hilly region overgrown with huge sala trees, on the southern slope of the Himavat mountains, he roamed about in perfect freedom.
Mbh.1.115.6248 And having said this and made these arrangements, the wise Dwaipayana went to the Himavat mountains for devoting himself to asceticism.
Mbh.1.118.6312 Vaisampayana said, O king, one day Pandu, while roaming about in the woods on the southern slopes of the Himavat that teemed with deer and wild animals of fierce disposition, saw a large deer, that seemed to be the leader of a herd, serving his mate.
Mbh.1.119.6415 He next went to Chaitraratha, and then crossed the Kalakuta, and finally, crossing the Himavat, he arrived at Gandhamadana.
Mbh.1.172.8760 This Ganga, issuing out of the golden peaks of Himavat, falleth into the waters of the ocean, being distributed into seven streams.
Mbh.1.178.9118 And beholding once again a river named Haimavati flowing from Himavat of terrible aspect and full of fierce crocodiles and other aquatic monsters, the Rishi threw himself into it, but the river mistaking the Brahmana for a mass of unquenchable fire, immediately flew in a hundred different directions, and hath been known ever since by the name of the Satadru the river of a hundred courses.
Mbh.1.179.9193 And while the Bhrigu race was thus being exterminated, the women of that tribe fled from fear to the inaccessible mountains of Himavat.
Mbh.1.182.9298 And the Rishi cast the fire that he had ignited for the purpose of the Rakshasas' sacrifice into the deep woods on the north of the Himavat.
Mbh.1.186.9403 And they were each furnished with a hundred doors wide enough to admit a crowd of persons; they were adorned with costly beds and carpets, and beautified with various metals; they resembled the peaks of the Himavat.
Mbh.1.189.9461 Some remarked, This handsome youth is even like the trunk of a mighty elephant, whose shoulders and arms and thighs are so well-built, who in patience looks like the Himavat, whose gait is even like that of the lion, and whose prowess seems to be like that of an elephant in rut, and who is so resolute, that it is probable that he will accomplish this feat.
Mbh.1.198.9841 And soon he saw, not far off from where he was, a handsome youth with a young lady seated on a throne placed on one of the peaks of Himavat and playing at dice.
Mbh.1.198.9875 And those Indras of old who had been confined in the cave on the Himavat are none else than the sons of Pandu, endued with great energy.
Mbh.1.216.10569 SECTION CCXVII Arjuna-vanavasa Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Then the son of the wielder of the thunderbolt narrated everything unto those Brahmanas residing with him there, set out for the breast of Himavat.
Mbh.2.10.407 The mountains of Himavat, Paripatra, Vindhya, Kailasa, Mandara, Malaya, Durdura, Mahendra, Gandhamadana, Indrakila, Sunava, and Eastern and the Western hills, these and many other mountains, in their personified forms, with Meru standing before all, wait upon and worship the illustrious lord of treasures.
Mbh.2.11.424 Repairing then to the breast of the Himavat, I commenced that great vow, and after I had completed it the exalted and sinless deity Surya endued with great energy, and knowing no fatigue, took me with him to the Sabha of the Grandsire.
Mbh.2.24.1076 And hearing those roars, the people of Magadha thought that either the Himavat was tumbling down or the earth itself was being rent asunder.
Mbh.2.33.1432 Adorned with various costly articles and built with various metals, they looked like peaks of the Himavat.
Mbh.2.43.1739 There is a bird called Bhulinga living on the other side of the Himavat.
Mbh.2.49.2076 The Himavat, the ocean, the regions on the sea-shore, and the numberless other regions that yield jewels and gems, have all acknowledged superiority of the mansion of Yudhishthira in respect of wealth it containeth.
Mbh.2.50.2123 I also saw numberless Chins and Sakas and Uddras and many barbarous tribes living in the woods, and many Vrishnis and Harahunas, and dusky tribes of the Himavat, and many Nipas and people residing in regions on the sea-coast, waiting at the gate being refused permission to enter.
Mbh.2.51.2137 The mountain tribes endued with great strength having brought as tribute numerous Chamaras long brushes soft and black and others white as moon-beam and sweet honey extracted from the flowers growing on the Himavat as also from the Mishali champaka and garlands of flowers brought from the region of the northern Kurus, and diverse kinds of plants from the north even from Kailasa, waited with their heads bent down at the gate of king Yudhishthira, being refused permission to enter.
Mbh.2.51.2138 I also beheld there numberless chiefs of the Kiratas armed with cruel weapons and ever engaged in cruel deeds, eating of fruits and roots and attired in skins and living on the northern slopes of the Himavat and on the mountain from behind which the sun rises and in the region of Karusha on the sea-coast and on both sides of the Lohitya mountains.
Mbh.2.75.3233 The mountains of Himavat might be removed from where they are, the maker of the day lose his brightness, the moon his coldness, but this vow of mine will ever be cherished.
Mbh.2.76.3263 Formerly thou wert instructed on the mountains of Himavat by Meru Savarni; in the town of Varanavata by Krishna Dwaipayana; on the cliff of Bhrigu by Rama; and on the banks of the Dhrishadwati by Sambhu himself.
Mbh.3.12.738 The heavens might fall, or the Himavat might split, the earth might be rent, or the waters of the ocean might dry up, but my words shall never be futile'
Mbh.3.16.828 And, O mighty king, then Kshemavriddhi, the commander of Salwa's forces, bore that shower of arrows, immovable as the Himavat!
Mbh.3.32.1549 One must act for protecting as also increasing his wealth; for if without seeking to earn, one continueth to only spend, his wealth, even if it were a hoard huge as Himavat, would soon be exhausted.
Mbh.3.35.1836 O son of Kunti, he that desireth to conceal us, only wisheth to conceal the mountains of Himavat by means of a handful of grass.
Mbh.3.37.1954 And that slayer of foes passed over many mountains inhabited by ascetics, and then reached the sacred Himavat, the resort of the celestials.
Mbh.3.37.1956 And having crossed the Himavat, as also the Gandhamadana, he passed over many uneven and dangerous spots, walking night and day without fatigue.
Mbh.3.38.1998 And the strong-armed Arjuna of great might set out armed with his celestial bow and a sword with golden hilt, for the success of the object he had in view, northwards, towards the summit of the Himavat.
Mbh.3.38.2003 Passing over those difficult and woody regions at the foot of the great mountains, Arjuna soon reached the breast of the Himavat; and staying there for sometime began to shine in his brilliancy.
Mbh.3.38.2015 And bowing unto that god of gods, they informed him of Arjuna's austerities saying, This son of pritha possessed of great energy is engaged in the most difficult of ascetic austerities on the breast of the Himavat.
Mbh.3.39.2026 SECTION XXXIX Vaisampayana said, After all those illustrious ascetics had gone away, that wielder of the Pinaka and cleanser of all sins, the illustrious Hara, assuming the form of a Kirata resplendent as a golden tree, and with a huge and stalwart form like a second Meru, and taking up a hand some bow and a number of arrows resembling snakes of virulent poison, and looking like an embodiment of fire, came quickly down on the breast of Himavat.
Mbh.3.39.2070 Alas, this mountaineer of delicate limbs, dwelling on the heights of the Himavat, beareth, without wavering, the shafts shot from the Gandiva!
Mbh.3.39.2073 The gods sometimes do descend on the heights of the Himavat.
Mbh.3.41.2235 Beholding those protectors of the worlds assembled together on the heights of Himavat, Dhananjaya, the son of Kunti, wondered much, Endued with great energy, he then duly worshipped the assembled Lokapalas, with words, water, and fruits.
Mbh.3.82.4025 One must then go, O virtuous chief of warriors, to Arvuda, the son of Himavat, where there was a hole through the earth in days of yore.
Mbh.3.84.4416 One should then repair, O virtuous one, after bowing to the great mountain Himavat, to the source of the Ganges, which is, without doubt, like the gate of heaven.
Mbh.3.186.9268 And, O king, the fish diligently dragged the boat through the flood for many a long year and then, O descendant of Kuru and ornament of Bharata's race, it towed the vessel towards the highest peak of the Himavat.
Mbh.3.186.9269 And, O Bharata, the fish then told those on the vessel to tie it to the peak of the Himavat.
Mbh.3.186.9270 And hearing the words of the fish they immediately tied the boat on that peak of the mountain and, O son of Kunti and ornament of Bharata's race, know that that high peak of the Himavat is still called by the name of Naubandhana the harbour.
Mbh.3.187.9408 And, O king, while wandering through the stomach of that high-souled one, I also beheld the Himavat and the mountains of Hemakuta.
Mbh.3.198.10053 I answered him, saying, There liveth on the Himavat an owl of the name of Pravarakarna.
Mbh.3.198.10056 The part of the Himavat where he dwelleth is far off from here'
Mbh.3.224.11352 And with those arrows the hill Krauncha, the son of Himavat, was rent asunder.
Mbh.3.247.12264 The earth may split, the vault of heaven may break in pieces, the sun may cast off his splendour, the moon may abandon his coolness, the wind may forsake its speed, the Himavat may be moved from its site, the waters of the ocean may dry up, and fire may abandon its heat, yet I, O king, may never rule the earth without thee'
Mbh.3.252.12443 Then going to the north, he subdued the sovereigns of that quarter and having effected the defeat of Bhagadatta, Radha's son ascended that mighty mountain Himavat, all along fighting his foes.
Mbh.3.252.12444 And ranging all sides, he conquered and brought under subjection all the kings inhabiting the Himavat, and made them pay dues.
Mbh.3.284.13896 But though struck with that mace of terrible force, the mighty-armed Vibhishana of great wisdom, without wavering in the least, stood still as the mountains of Himavat.
Mbh.3.311.15262 Who is it that hath overthrown the four mighty mountains, viz, the Himavat, the Paripatra, the Vindhya, and the Malaya?
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.4.39.1594 It is said that the lord Mahadeva himself, disguised in the attire of a hunter, was gratified by this son of Pritha in battle on the mountains of Himavat'
Mbh.4.44.1684 They call me Falguna because I was born on the breast of the Himavat on a day when the constellation Uttara Falguna was on the ascendent.
Mbh.4.49.1890 Alone he led the life of a Brahmacharin for five years on the breast of Himavat.
Mbh.5.11.474 And when Nahusha became the king of the gods, he surrounded himself with celestial nymphs, and with damsels of celestial birth, and took to enjoyments of various kinds, in the Nandana groves, on mount Kailasa, on the crest of Himavat, on Mandara.
Mbh.5.14.603 And she crossed the heavenly groves, and many mountains; and then having crossed the Himavat mountains, she came to its northern side.
Mbh.5.55.3073 Smitten with a blow of my mace, the mountains of Himavat may split into a hundred thousands fragments.
Mbh.5.76.3776 The Himavat, the ocean, the mighty wielder of the thunderbolt himself, viz, the slayer of Vala, even these three cannot, with all their power extricate the person attacked by me.
Mbh.5.82.3951 The mountains of Himavat might shift their site, the Earth herself might spilt into a hundred fragments, the firmament itself with its myriads of stars might fall down, still my words can never be futile.
Mbh.5.110.5050 It is towards this direction that the roots of Himavat stretch towards the eternal Mandara sunk in the ocean.
Mbh.5.111.5070 Hither, on the breast of Himavat always dwelleth Maheswara endued with the effulgence of the fire that blazeth up at the end of the Yuga.
Mbh.5.111.5077 It was in this region that Kama, the wrath of Siva, Himavat, and Uma, all together shone brilliantly.
Mbh.5.111.5097 It is here that the brilliant and shining gold mines of Himavat exhibit themselves to the illustrious and regenerate Rishi Jimuta.
Mbh.5.158.6980 SECTION CLVIII Janamejaya said, When Yudhishthira heard that Bhishma, the high-souled son of Ganga, the foremost of all wielders of weapons, the grandsire of the Bharatas, the head of all the kings, the rival of Vrihaspati in intellect, resembling the ocean in gravity, the mountains of Himavat in calmness, the Creator himself in nobleness, and the sun in energy, and capable of slaying hostile hosts like great Indra himself by showering his arrows, was installed, till his removal by death, in the command of the Kuru army on the eve of the great sacrifice of battle, terrific in its mien and capable of making one's hairs stand on their ends, what did that mighty-armed son of Pandu, that foremost of wielders of weapons, say?
Mbh.6.3.157 From the mountains of Kailasa and Mandara and Himavat thousands of explosions are heard and thousands of summits are tumbling down.
Mbh.6.6.321 They are Himavat, Hemakuta, that best of mountains called Nishadha, Nila abounding with stones of lapis lazuli, Sweta white as the moon, and the mountains called Sringavat composed of all kinds of metals
Mbh.6.6.327 Next to it northwards is the Varsha called after Himavat.
Mbh.6.6.385 Rakshasas reside on Himavat, Guhyakas on Hemakuta, and serpents and Nagas on Nishadha, and ascetics on Gokarna.
Mbh.6.13.700 Resembling the great Indra himself in bravery, and Himavat in firmness, like unto the ocean itself in gravity, and the Earth herself in patience, that invincible warrior having arrows for his teeth, that bow for his mouth, and the sword for his tongue, that lion among men, hath to-day been slain by the prince of Panchala.
Mbh.6.34.1597 Of immobiles I am the Himavat.
Mbh.6.120.6661 Ascertaining that to be his resolve, Ganga, the daughter of Himavat, sent unto him the great Rishis in swanlike form.
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.7.4.137 The Kiratas, fierce in battle, dwelling in the fastness of Himavat, were formerly, O Karna, made by thee to own Duryodhana's sway.
Mbh.7.21.997 The beautiful altar on his banner, as he careered in battle, O Bharata, was seen to resemble a crest or Himavat.
Mbh.7.52.2454 Thence going to the top of Himavat, where the gods had performed their sacrifice in days of yore, that amiable and auspicious girl remained for a billion of years standing on the toe only of her feet.
Mbh.7.53.2585 Unto that royal sage the illustrious lord Mahadeva himself had given wealth in the shape of a golden plateau of Himavat.
Mbh.7.78.3435 And Partha, possessed of the speed of the mind, seemed to reach, with Kesava, the sacred foot of Himavat and the Manimat mountain abounding in many brilliant gems and frequented by Siddhas and Charanas.
Mbh.7.88.3896 Struck with Arjuna's shafts, thousands of steeds fell down like swans on the breast of Himavat, struck down by the force of watery current.
Mbh.7.102.4754 And with that standard Arjuna looked highly resplendent, like Himavat with a blazing fire on its top.
Mbh.7.109.5203 That division of the assembled Mlecchas that are all sinful and that come from the fastnesses of Himavat, seem at a distance to be of smoky colour.
Mbh.7.173.9468 himself, struck with the keen arrows that were sped from Karna's bow, that huge Rakshasa, looking like Himavat the prince of mountains, disappeared then and there.
Mbh.7.197.11039 Beholding these two strong arms of mine like unto the trunks of a couple of mighty elephants, capable of pulling down the mountain of Himavat.
Mbh.7.198.11282 On the mountain of Himavat he underwent the severest ascetic austerities.
Mbh.8.19.767 Then those warriors, filled with rage, covered Arjuna from every side with diverse kinds of weapons like the clouds urged by the Maruts shrouding Himavat at the close of summer.
Mbh.8.34.1651 Himavat and Vindhya mountains became its Apaskara and Adhishthana; and the Udaya and the Asta mountains were made the wheels of that car by those foremost ones among the gods.
Mbh.8.42.2280 Like Himavat bearing the mighty, all-crushing, fierce and smiting god of wind, I shall, without moving, bear the angry and vindictive Dhananjaya.
Mbh.8.44.2357 A foremost one among brahmanas, venerable in years while reciting old histories, said these words, blaming the Vahikas and Madrakas, One should always avoid the Vahikas, those impure people that are out of the pale of virtue, and that live away from the Himavat and the Ganga and Sarasvati and Yamuna and Kurukshetra and the Sindhu and its five tributary rivers.
Mbh.8.44.2385 I must, however, speak again to thee about what another brahmana had said unto us in the Kuru court, There where forests of Pilus stand, and those five rivers flow, viz, the Satadru, the Vipasa, the Iravati, the Candrabhaga, and the Vitasa and which have the Sindhu for their sixth, there in those regions removed from the Himavat, are the countries called by the name of the Arattas.
Mbh.8.45.2414 Observing our practices he became highly gratified and said unto us, I dwelt for a long time on a peak of the Himavat quite alone.
Mbh.8.45.2467 So Rakshasas and Pishacas protect the Himavat, the best of mountains.
Mbh.8.79.4864 Indeed, the mountains of Himavat may move from the spot where they stand but not the two Krishnas.
Mbh.8.85.5177 Then Vrika deeply pierced with a dozen shafts that prince having his abode on the Himavat as he stood on his elephant.
Mbh.9.5.368 Having reached the Sarasvati of red waters on the sacred and beautiful table-land at the foot of Himavat, they bathed in that water and quenched their thirst with it.
Mbh.9.6.371 SECTION Sanjaya said, On that table land at the foot of Himavat, those warriors, O monarch, delighting at the prospect of battle and assembled together, passed the night.
Mbh.9.6.373 After the heroic Karna had been slain in battle, thy sons, inspired with fright by the Pandavas desirous of victory, failed to obtain peace anywhere else than on the mountains of Himavat.
Mbh.9.9.521 Adorned with yak-tails, steeds rushed on all sides, looking like the swans found on the plains at the foot of Himavat.
Mbh.9.31.2324 Am I not armed with a formidable mace that looks like a cliff of Himavat?
Mbh.9.36.2683 That river of swift current flows from the sides of the Himavat.
Mbh.9.36.2694 Once again, while Brahman was engaged in a sacrifice on the sacred forest of the Himavat mountains, the adorable Sarasvati, summoned by him, appeared there.
Mbh.9.42.3034 Ganga also, unable to hold it, cast it on the beautiful breast of Himavat that is worshipped by the celestials.
Mbh.9.42.3040 And since the adorable child had been cast by the river Ganga upon the summit of Himavat, that mountain looked beautiful, having, O delighter of the Kurus, been transformed into gold!
Mbh.9.42.3053 One day, the child, of great energy, saw that god of gods, the lord of Uma, seated with the daughter of Himavat, amid a swarm of ghostly creatures.
Mbh.9.42.3073 Visakha went to the spot where the divine daughter of Himavat was.
Mbh.9.42.3088 Then the gods headed by Brahman, taking that youth with them, together came to Himavat.
Mbh.9.42.3089 The spot they selected was the bank of the sacred and divine Sarasvati, that foremost of rivers, taking her rise from Himavat, that Sarasvati which, at Samanta-panchaka, is celebrated over the three worlds.
Mbh.9.43.3092 Himavat gave a seat which was adorned with many costly gems.
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.9.43.3125 Himavat gave unto Agni's son two companions, O King, Suvarchas and Ativarchas.
Mbh.9.46.3442 In this very tirtha, O auspicious, sinless, and highly blessed one, the seven Rishis had, on one occasion, left Arundhati, the wife of one of them, when they went to Himavat.
Mbh.9.46.3444 While they thus lived in a forest of Himavat for procuring their sustenance, a drought occurred extending for twelve years.
Mbh.9.46.3460 Gratified, he spoke unto them about the noble conduct of Arundhati in these words The ascetic merit, ye regenerate ones, that this lady hath earned, is, I think, much greater than what ye have earned on the breast of Himavat!
Mbh.9.46.3487 Keeping the girl in his hermitage, Bharadwaja repaired to the forests of Himavat.
Mbh.9.52.3760 Bidding farewell to the Rishis, Baladeva of unfading glory went through the performance of all the rites and ceremonies of the evening twilight on the side of Himavat and then began his ascent of the mountain.
Mbh.9.56.4066 All their limbs mangled and bruised, and covered with blood from head to foot, they looked like a couple of Kinsukas on the breast of Himavat.
Mbh.11.21.875 Incapable of being checked by foes in battle like Maghavat himself who is invincible by enemies, Karna was like the all-destroying fire of fierce flames at the end of the yuga, and immovable like Himavat himself!
Mbh.12.56.3061 If the king is not wrathful, if he is not addicted to evil practices and not severe in his punishments, if he succeeds in keeping his passions under control, he then becomes an object of confidence unto all like the Himavat mountains unto all creatures.
Mbh.12.58.3242 Ocean, that lord of rivers, and Himavat, the king of mountains, and Sakra, O Yudhishthira, bestowed upon him inexhaustible wealth.
Mbh.12.121.6856 There, on that peak of Himavat, near the golden mountains of Merit, the great Brahmana here Rama, sitting under the shade of a well-known banian, had tied his matted locks together
Mbh.12.125.7167 The prince of mountains, viz, Himavat, and that vast receptacle of waters, viz, the ocean, cannot, for its vastness, measure the extent of the firmament.
Mbh.12.127.7271 Do thou also, O son of Kunti, hearing these words of mine, be calm and collected like Himavat.
Mbh.12.153.9252 There was a lordly Salmali tree on one of the heights of Himavat.
Mbh.12.155.9309 Narada said, There is a certain Salmali on the breast of Himavat, adorned with branches and leaves.
Mbh.12.165.9837 Then the divine Brahman, accompanied by the regenerate sages, proceeded to a delightful summit of Himavat, extending for a hundred Yojanas in area, adorned with diverse kinds of jewels and gems, and upon whose surface the stars seemed to rest like so many lotuses on a lake.
Mbh.12.191.11437 Bhrigu said, Towards the north, on the other side of Himavat, which is sacred and possessed of every merit, there is a region that is sacred, blessed, and highly desirable.
Mbh.12.198.11797 Residing at the foot of Himavat, he was devoted to the Vedas.
Mbh.12.202.12278 Nobody has seen the other side of the Himavat mountains, nor the reverse of the moon's disc.
Mbh.12.225.13738 The person of wisdom, naturally standing immovable like Himavat, never gives way to wrath; never suffers himself to be attached to the objects of the senses; never languishes in sorrow or rejoices in happiness.
Mbh.12.257.15585 Proceeding thence to the summit of Himavat where the deities had performed their great sacrifice, she stood there for another hundred billions of years, supporting her weight upon only the toes of her feet with the object of gratifying the Grandsire with such an act of austerity.
Mbh.12.282.17397 It hath been heard by us that the high-souled deities, with the permission o f Mahadeva, mounted their celestial cars resembling the fire or the Sun in splendour, and proceeded to that spot on the Himavat whence the Ganges is said to issue.
Mbh.12.283.17459 Vaisampayana said, In days of yore Daksha made arrangements for performing a Sacrifice on the breast of Himavat in that sacred region inhabited by Rishis and Siddhas where the Ganges issues out of the mountains.
Mbh.12.325.20661 Crossing many hills and mountains, many rivers, many waters and lakes, and many woods and forests abounding with beasts of prey and other animals, crossing, the two Varshas of Meru and Hari successively and next the Varsha of Himavat, he came at last to the Varsha known by the name of Bharata.
Mbh.12.327.20786 His object being accomplished, he became happy and tranquil, and without putting further questions to Janaka, he proceeded northwards to the mountains of Himavat with the speed of the wind and like the wind
Mbh.12.327.20824 Vyasa the son of Parasara, after the arrival of his puissant son, continued to dwell there on the Himavat engaged in teaching his disciples and his son.
Mbh.12.333.21275 Loud-reports as of thunder were heard that seemed to rive the Himavat mountains.
Mbh.12.333.21281 Suka as he proceeded through the welkin, beheld two beautiful summits, one belonging to Himavat and another to Meru.
Mbh.12.342.22579 The daughter, named Uma, of the Himavat mountains, was desired by Rudra in marriage After Himavat had promised the hand of Uma to Mahadeva, the great Rishi Bhrigu, approaching Himavat, addressed him, saying, Give this daughter of thine unto me in marriage.
Mbh.12.342.22580 Himavat replied unto him, saying, Rudra is the bridegroom already selected by me for my daughter,
Mbh.12.342.22582 To this day, in consequence of the Rishi's words, the mountains of Himavat have not any jewels and gems.
Mbh.12.342.22696 The mountains of Himavat became riven.
Mbh.12.343.22733 When, however, the celestial Rishi Narada had succeeded in obtaining a sight of the Supreme Lord of the universe, a residing in the form of Aniruddha, why did he again proceed so quickly to the retreat of Vadari on the breast of Himavat for beholding those two foremost of godly of Rishis viz, Nara and Narayana?
Mbh.12.344.22871 Worshipping the Supreme Deity Narayana, and adoring those two ancient Rishis also that had taken birth in the house of Dharma, the illustrious Rishi Narada, endued with great energy, continued to reside, thus employed, in that retreat, called Vadari, on the breast of Himavat, belonging to Nara and Narayana, for a thousand years as measured by the standard of the celestials
Mbh.12.346.22924 Having resided for a full thousand years in the retreat of Nara and Narayana, having beheld the immutable Hari, and heard the excellent discourse having Narayana for its topic, the celestial Rishi repaired to his own retreat on the breast of Himavat, Those foremost of ascetics viz, Nara and Narayana, however continued to reside in their delightful retreat of Vadari, engaged in the practice of the severest austerities.
Mbh.12.349.23339 Vaisampayana said, Desirous of understanding the meaning of the Srutis, my preceptor, that ocean of penances, who is exceedingly devoted to the observance of all scriptural duties and the acquisition of knowledge, dwelt for some time in a particular region of the Himavat mountains.
Mbh.12.349.23343 Surrounded by these disciples of his, Vyasa shone in beauty on the breast of the Himavat mountains like the Lord of all the ghostly beings, viz, Mahadeva, in the midst of those ghostly attendants of his.
Mbh.13.10.578 The incident which I shall relate occurred in the asylum of certain regenerate sages that stood on the auspicious breast of Himavat.
Mbh.13.14.913 He immediately came to me and bore me to Himavat at my bidding.
Mbh.13.14.914 Arrived at Himavat, I dismissed him.
Mbh.13.14.944 Thus addressed, it stood in all its beauty on the breast of Himavat, like the lunar disc in the firmament.
Mbh.13.14.1399 Thou art the Ocean of milk among all oceans, among all rocky eminences thou art Himavat, among all the orders thou art the Brahmana, and among all learned Brahmanas thou art he that has undergone and is observant of the Diksha.
Mbh.13.17.2015 Thou art identical with the Himavat mountains.
Mbh.13.17.2383 Thou art he who repairs to the mountains of Himavat.
Mbh.13.17.2603 Thou art the husband of Uma, the daughter of Himavat.
Mbh.13.17.2715 Thou art the lord of all immobile things in the form of Himavat and Meru.
Mbh.13.19.2923 Vadanya said, Passing over the dominions of the lord of Treasures thou will cross the Himavat mountains.
Mbh.13.19.2946 He proceeded more and more towards the north and at last reached the Himavat mountains peopled by Siddhas and Charanas
Mbh.13.19.2947 Arrived at the Himavat mountains, that foremost of Brahamanas then came upon the sacred river Vahuda whose waters produce great merit.
Mbh.13.25.3485 The celebrated Himavat is sacred.
Mbh.13.26.3619 Ganga is the daughter of Himavat, the spouse of Hara, and the ornament of both Heaven and Earth.
Mbh.13.30.3866 Encompassing him with innumerable cars, O Yudhisthira, the Vitahavyas poured upon Pratarddana showers of weapons of various kinds like clouds pouring torrents of rain on the breast of Himavat.
Mbh.13.35.4174 The Himavat mountains are incapable of being moved from their site.
Mbh.13.66.6292 Himavat, the deities attached to the gift of earth a sixth part of the merit arising from their sacrifice.
Mbh.13.84.7555 After the wedding was over of the illustrious and high-souled Rudra armed with the trident, O son of Bhrigu's race, with the goddess who became his spouse, on the breast of that foremost of mountains, viz, Himavat, the illustrious and high-souled deity wished to unite himself with the goddess.
Mbh.13.103.9214 Observant of penances, subsisting on regulated diet, adopting tranquillity of soul, and restraining speech, I dwelt for a long time on the breast of Himavat by the side of that Ganga whose irresistible current as it fell from heaven was borne by Mahadeva on his head.
Mbh.13.139.11469 The ascetics said, It behoveth thee, O Narada, to describe, in full, from the beginning, unto Hrishikesa, that wonderful and inconceivable incident which occurred, O puissant one, on the mountains of Himavat and which, O ascetic, was witnessed by those of us that had proceeded thither in course of our pilgrimage to the sacred waters.
Mbh.13.140.11473 Narada said, Once on a time the righteous-souled lord of all the deities, viz, Mahadeva with the bull for his device, practised severe penances on the sacred mountains of Himavat that are the resort of Siddhas and Charanas.
Mbh.13.140.11516 Unto Mahadeva seated there, came his spouse, the daughter of Himavat, surrounded by the wives of the ghostly beings who are the companions of the great deity.
Mbh.13.140.11521 She who loved to reside on the breast of Himavat advanced in this guise towards her great lord.
Mbh.13.140.11532 The large-eyed daughter of Himavat, beholding what occurred, bowed her head unto Mahadeva endued with that third eye which resembled a blazing fire.
Mbh.13.140.11537 In a moment, the Himavat mountains were consumed, with their minerals and summits and blazing herbs.
Mbh.13.140.11538 Beholding Himavat crushed and consumed, the daughter of that prince of mountains sought the protection of the great deity and stood before him her hands joined in reverence.
Mbh.13.140.11539 Then Sarva, seeing Uma overcome by an accession of womanly mildness and finding that she was unwilling to behold her father Himavat reduced to that pitiable plight, cast benignant looks upon the mountain.
Mbh.13.140.11540 In a moment the whole of Himavat was restored to his former condition and became as beautiful to look at as ever.
Mbh.13.140.11543 Beholding Himavat to his natural condition, the goddess Uma, divested of every fault, addressed her lord, that master of all creatures, the divine Maheswara, in these words'
Mbh.13.140.11553 For pleasing thee, however, O goddess, I once more made Himavat what he was by repairing the injury'
Mbh.13.141.11606 Narada continued, When the daughter of Himavat put this question, conclave of Rishis there present worshipped the goddess and adored her with words adorned with Riks and with hymns fraught with deep import'
Mbh.13.146.12155 Thou art endued with every virtue, possessed of beautiful eyebrows and hair ending in the fairest curls, O daughter of Himavat, the king of mountains!
Mbh.13.148.12386 Some time also Mahadeva burnt Himavat with his energy.
Mbh.13.148.12436 Listen to me as I tell thee what Mahadeva having the bovine bull for the device on his standard had recited unto the ascetics on the breast of the Himavat.
Mbh.13.148.12461 Verily, I have discoursed also on the surpassing puissance of Krishna as recited by Mahadeva, unto that conclave of Rishis on the breast of the Himavat.
Mbh.13.148.12462 The discourse too between Maheswara and the daughter of Himavat, O Bharata, has been recited by me to thee.
Mbh.13.148.12477 O puissant king, even these are the wonderful incidents that occurred on the sacred breast of the Himavat respecting Vasudeva and Sthanu, O son of Kunti.
