Mbh.12.104.5911 Honoured by Janaka possessed of intelligence and prosperity, thou shalt certainly become the right arm of that ruler and enjoy the confidence of all.
Mbh.12.105.5978 Thus addressed, king Janaka, properly saluting and honouring that bull among Brahmanas who deserved every honour, replied unto him, saying, Thou art of great learning and great wisdom.
Mbh.12.105.5991 King Janaka also bestowed upon his guest his own daughter and diverse kinds of gems and jewels.
Mbh.12.158.9452 Janaka, and Yuvanaswa, and Vrishadarbhi, and Prasenajit, and other kings acquired heaven in consequence of their having repressed covetousness.
Mbh.12.177.10678 SECTION CLXXVIII Bhishma continued, In this connection is also cited the old narrative of the verses sung by Janaka the ruler of the Videhas, who had attained to tranquillity of soul.
Mbh.12.217.13112 SECTION CCXVIII Yudhishthira said, By following what conduct, O thou that art conversant with all courses of conduct, did Janaka, the ruler of Mithila versed in the religion of Emancipation, succeed in attaining to Emancipation, after casting off all worldly enjoyments'
Mbh.12.217.13141 Conversant with all courses of duty, Panchasikha, after having himself acquired high knowledge, came to Janaka and knowing that that king had equal reverence for all his preceptors, began to amaze that century of preceptors by an exposition of his doctrine fraught, with abundant reasons.
Mbh.12.217.13142 Observing the talent of Kapileya, Janaka became exceedingly attached to him, and abandoning his hundred preceptors, began to follow him in particular.
Mbh.12.217.13143 Then Kapileya began to discourse unto Janaka, who had according to the ordinance bent his head unto him as a disciple should and who was fully competent to apprehend the sage's instructions, upon that high religion of Emancipation which is explained in Sankhya treatises.
Mbh.12.218.13218 SECTION CCXIX Bhishma said, Janadeva of the race of Janaka, thus instructed by the great Rishi Panchasikha, once more asked him about the topic of existence or nonexistence after death'
Mbh.12.218.13314 Their own ancestor Janaka, the chief of Mithila, beholding his city burning in a conflagration, himself proclaimed, In this conflagration nothing of mine is burning'
Mbh.12.269.16521 Never addicted at any time to sinful acts, observant of those rites that have been laid down in the Vedas, capable of crowning all their wishes with fruition, endued with certain conclusions through pure knowledge, never giving way to wrath, never indulging in envy, free from pride and malice, firm in Yoga of unstained birth, unstained conduct, and unstained learning, devoted to the good of all creatures, there were in days of yore many men, leading lives of domesticity and thoroughly devoted to their own duties, there were many kings also of the same qualifications, devoted to Yoga like Janaka, etc,
Mbh.12.290.18201 Bhishma said, In this connection I shall narrate to thee what the celebrated king Janaka had enquired, in days of yore, of the high-souled Parasara, What is beneficial for all creatures both in this world and the next!
Mbh.12.296.18456 SECTION CCXCVII Janaka said, Whence, O great Rishi, does this difference of colour arise among men belonging to the different orders?
Mbh.12.296.18475 Janaka said, When all have sprung from Brahmana alone, how came human beings to have diversity in respect of race?
Mbh.12.296.18486 Janaka said, Tell me, O holy one, the especial duties of the several orders.
Mbh.12.296.18507 Janaka said, O great ascetic, is man stained by his acts or is he stained by the order or class in which he is born?
Mbh.12.296.18515 Janaka said, What are those righteous acts in this world, O best of all regenerate persons, the accomplishment of which does not inflict any injury upon other creatures'
Mbh.12.298.18595 SECTION CCXCIX Bhishma said, Once again Janaka, the ruler of Mithila, questioned the high-souled Parasara endued with certain knowledge in respect of all duties'
Mbh.12.298.18596 Janaka said, What is productive of good?
Mbh.12.298.18671 Bhishma continued, Thus addressed conformably to the truth by the sage, Janaka, that foremost of righteous persons, O king, heard everything the Rishi said and obtained great happiness from it
Mbh.12.302.19008 Once on a time when that foremost of Rishis, viz, Vasishtha, endued with the effulgence of the Sun, was seated at his ease, king Janaka asked him about that highest knowledge which is for our supreme good.
Mbh.12.305.19155 SECTION CCCVI Janaka said, O holy one, it has been said that the relation between male and female is like that which subsists between the Indestructible and the destructible or Purusha and Prakriti.
Mbh.12.306.19214 SECTION CCCVII Janaka said, Thou hast, O foremost of Rishis, said that Unity is the attribute of that which is Akshara Indestructible and variety or multiplicity is the attribute of what is known as Kshara Destructible.
Mbh.12.310.19506 Bhishma said, I shall in this connection recite to thee the old narrative, O Bharata, of the discourse between Yajnavalkya and Janaka.
Mbh.12.310.19508 Janaka said, O regenerate Rishi, how many kinds of senses are there?
Mbh.12.314.19656 Janaka said, Both Prakriti and Purusha, O thou of great intelligence, are without beginning and without end.
Mbh.12.318.19976 Those persons, learned in the scriptures, who succeed in apprehending Eternal Brahma who is higher than Unmanifest Prakriti, succeed in obtaining that which transcends birth and death, which is free from attributes, and which is both existent and non-existent I got all this knowledge from Janaka.
Mbh.12.318.19987 In former time, Yajnavalkya did that good to king Janaka which is derivable from a study of the Upanishads.
Mbh.12.319.19992 Bhishma said, In this connection is cited the old narrative of Panchasikha who was a Bhikshu in his practices and Janaka.
Mbh.12.319.19993 Once on a time Janaka, the ruler of the Videhas, questioned the great Rishi Panchasikha, who was the foremost of all persons conversant with the Vedas and who had all his doubts removed in respect of the purpose and import of all duties.
Mbh.12.320.20023 Bhishma said, In this connection is cited the old narrative of the discourse between Janaka and Sulabha, O Bharata!
Mbh.12.320.20031 Hearing this report about king Janaka and desirous of ascertaining whether it was true or not, Sulabha became desirous of having a personal interview with Janaka.
Mbh.12.320.20038 Doubting whether Janaka had succeeded in attaining to Emancipation, by following the religion of Nivritti, Sulabha, endued with Yoga-power, entered the understanding of the king by her own understanding.
Mbh.12.320.20039 Restraining, by means of the rays of light that emanated from her own eyes, the rays issuing from the eyes of the king, the lady, desirous of ascertaining the truth, bound up king Janaka with Yoga bonds'
Mbh.12.320.20045 Janaka said, O holy lady, to what course of conduct art thou devoted?
Mbh.12.320.20272 Like kings, O Janaka, all men in their own houses chastise and reward.
Mbh.12.320.20365 Bhishma continued, Hearing these words fraught with excellent sense and with reason, king Janaka failed to return any answer thereto
Mbh.12.325.20647 When Vyasa behind his son to be possessed of the resplendence of the Vedas, endued with the energy of Brahma, and fully conversant with the religion of Emancipation, he addressed him, saying, Go thou to Janaka the ruler of Mithila.
Mbh.12.325.20666 Before much time had passed he reached the country of the Videhas that was protected by the virtuous and high-souled Janaka.
Mbh.12.325.20705 It was in this way, O Bharata, that the son of the Island-born Krishna passed the latter part of that day and the whole of that night in the palace of king Janaka
Mbh.12.326.20706 SECTION CCCXXVII Bhishma said, The next morning, king Janaka, O Bharata, accompanied by his minister and the whole household, came to Suka, placing his priest in the van.
Mbh.12.326.20715 Receiving Suka's permission, Janaka sat down with all his followers.
Mbh.12.326.20718 Suka said, Blessed be thou, my sire said unto me that his Yajamana, the ruler of the Videhas, known all over the world by the name of Janaka, is well-versed in the religion of Emancipation.
Mbh.12.326.20726 Janaka said, Hear what the duties are of a Brahmana from the time of his birth.
Mbh.12.326.20738 Janaka said, Without the aid of an understanding cleansed by study of the scriptures and without that true conception of all things which is known by the name of Vijnana, the attainment of Emancipation is impossible.
