MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.11 Sauti said, Having heard the diverse sacred and wonderful stories which were composed in his Mahabharata by Krishna-Dwaipayana, and which were recited in full by Vaisampayana at the Snake-sacrifice of the high-souled royal sage Janamejaya and in the presence also of that chief of Princes, the son of Parikshit, and having wandered about, visiting many sacred waters and holy shrines, I journeyed to the country venerated by the Dwijas twice-born and called Samantapanchaka where formerly was fought the battle between the children of Kuru and Pandu, and all the chiefs of the land ranged on either side.
Mbh.1.1.17 We are desirous of hearing that history also called Bharata, the holy composition of the wonderful Vyasa, which dispelleth the fear of evil, just as it was cheerfully recited by the Rishi Vaisampayana, under the direction of Dwaipayana himself, at the snake-sacrifice of Raja Janamejaya'
Mbh.1.1.80 It was not till after these were born, grown up, and departed on the supreme journey, that the great Rishi Vyasa published the Bharata in this region of mankind; when being solicited by Janamejaya and thousands of Brahmanas, he instructed his disciple Vaisampayana, who was seated near him; and he, sitting together with the Sadasyas, recited the Bharata, during the intervals of the ceremonies of the sacrifice, being repeatedly urged to proceed.
Mbh.1.1.206 Suhotra; Rantideva, and Kakshivanta, great in glory; Valhika, Damana, Saryati, Ajita, and Nala; Viswamitra the destroyer of foes; Amvarisha, great in strength; Marutta, Manu, Ikshaku, Gaya, and Bharata; Rama the son of Dasaratha; Sasavindu, and Bhagiratha; Kritavirya, the greatly fortunate, and Janamejaya too; and Yayati of good deeds who performed sacrifices, being assisted therein by the celestials themselves, and by whose sacrificial altars and stakes this earth with her habited and uninhabited regions hath been marked all over.
Mbh.1.2.284 O Saunaka, this best of narrations called Bharata which has begun to be repeated at thy sacrifice, was formerly repeated at the sacrifice of Janamejaya by an intelligent disciple of Vyasa.
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.1.3.592 SECTION III Paushya Parva Sauti said, Janamejaya, the son of Parikshit, was, with his brothers, attending his long sacrifice on the plains of Kurukshetra.
Mbh.1.3.595 And belaboured by the brothers of Janamejaya, he ran away to his mother, crying in pain.
Mbh.1.3.598 And being thus questioned, he said unto his mother, I have been belaboured by the brothers of Janamejaya'
Mbh.1.3.602 His mother Sarama hearing this and much distressed at the affliction of her son went to the place where Janamejaya with his brothers was at his long-extending sacrifice.
Mbh.1.3.603 And she addressed Janamejaya in anger, saying, This my son hath committed no fault: he hath not looked upon your sacrificial butter, nor hath he touched it with his tongue.
Mbh.1.3.606 Janamejaya, thus addressed by the celestial bitch, Sarama, became exceedingly alarmed and dejected.
Mbh.1.3.608 One day Janamejaya, the son of Parikshit, while a-hunting, observed in a particular part of his dominions a hermitage where dwelt a certain Rishi of fame, Srutasrava.
Mbh.1.3.610 Being desirous of appointing that son of the Rishi as his Purohita, Janamejaya, the son of Parikshit, saluted the Rishi and addressed him, saying, O possessor of the six attributes, let this thy son be my purohita'
Mbh.1.3.611 The Rishi thus addressed, answered Janamejaya, O Janamejaya, this my son, deep in ascetic devotions, accomplished in the study of the Vedas, and endued with the full force of my asceticism, is born of the womb of a she-snake that had drunk my vital fluid.
Mbh.1.3.615 Janamejaya thus addressed replied to the Rishi, It shall be even so'
Mbh.1.3.769 After a certain time, Janamejaya and Paushya, both of the order of Kshatriyas, arriving at his residence appointed the Brahman.
Mbh.1.3.937 And Utanka then waited upon King Janamejaya who had some time before returned victorious from Takshashila.
Mbh.1.3.942 Sauti said, The monarch Janamejaya, thus addressed, saluting that excellent Brahmana replied unto him, In cherishing these my subjects I do discharge the duties of my noble tribe.
Mbh.1.11.1204 Listen, O Ruru, to the account of the destruction of snakes at the sacrifice of Janamejaya in days of yore, and the deliverance of the terrified reptiles by that best of Dwijas, Astika, profound in Vedic lore and might in spiritual energy
Mbh.1.12.1206 SECTION XII Pauloma Parva continued Sauti continued, Ruru then asked, O best of Dwijas, why was king Janamejaya bent upon destroying the serpents,
Mbh.1.13.1216 SECTION XIII Astika Parva Saunaka said, For what reason did that tiger among kings, the royal Janamejaya, determine to take the lives of the snakes by means of a sacrifice?
Mbh.1.20.1447 But her sons, the snakes, refusing to do her bidding, she cursed them, saying, During the snake-sacrifice of the wise king Janamejaya of the Pandava race, Agni shall consume you all'
Mbh.1.37.2028 One party of the serpents said, We should assume the guise of superior Brahmanas, and beseech Janamejaya, saying, This intended sacrifice of yours ought not to take place'
Mbh.1.38.2064 Nor is king Janamejaya of the Pandava race from whom this fear proceedeth, such that he can be hindered.
Mbh.1.44.2300 And the people called their new king, that slayer of all enemies, that hero of the Kuru race, by the name of Janamejaya.
Mbh.1.44.2301 And that best of monarchs, Janamejaya, though a child, was wise in mind.
Mbh.1.49.2495 SECTION XLIX Astika Parva continued Saunaka said, Tell me again, in detail, all that king Janamejaya had asked his ministers about his father's ascension to heaven'
Mbh.1.49.2497 Janamejaya asked, Know ye all that befell my father.
Mbh.1.49.2512 And, O Janamejaya, thy father was dear unto Govinda.
Mbh.1.49.2521 Janamejaya said, There hath not been born in our race a king who hath not sought the good of his subjects or been loved by them.
Mbh.1.50.2566 O Janamejaya, hearing those terrible words, thy father took every precaution against the powerful snake Takshaka.
Mbh.1.50.2588 Sauti continued, King Janamejaya, that chastiser of enemies, then spake upto all his ministers.
Mbh.1.50.2604 Sauti continued, King Janamejaya, having listened to the words of his ministers, was sorely afflicted with grief, and began to weep.
Mbh.1.51.2619 SECTION LI Astika Parva continued Sauti said, King Janamejaya having said so, his ministers expressed their approbation.
Mbh.1.53.2651 SECTION LIII Astika Parva continued Saunaka asked, What great Rishis became the Ritwiks at the snake-sacrifice of the wise king Janamejaya of the Pandava line?
Mbh.1.53.2664 Meanwhile, Takshaka, that prince of snakes, as soon as he heard that king Janamejaya was engaged in the sacrifice, went to the palace of Purandara Indra.
Mbh.1.54.2711 Hence on serious occasions like this, I need not say anything more, O uncle, going thither today I shall gratify, with words mixed with blessings, the monarch Janamejaya installed at the sacrifice, so that, O excellent one, the sacrifice may stop.
Mbh.1.55.2764 And king Janamejaya beholding the signs and indications manifested all around, addressed them as follows
Mbh.1.56.2765 SECTION LVI Astika Parva continued Janamejaya said, Though this one is but a boy, he speaks yet like a wise old man.
Mbh.1.56.2774 Janamejaya replied, Exert ye to the best of your might, so that this sacrifice of mine may attain completion, and Takshaka also may soon come here.
Mbh.1.56.2784 Sauti continued, Urged thus by the king Janamejaya about Takshaka, the Hotri poured libations, naming that snake then staying there.
Mbh.1.56.2790 Janamejaya then said, Thou immeasurable one of such handsome and child-like features, I desire to grant thee a worthy boon.
Mbh.1.56.2798 Sauti continued, While Takshaka, the prince of snakes was about to fall into the sacrificial fire, during those few moments Astika spoke as follows, O Janamejaya, if thou wouldst grant me a boon, let this sacrifice of thine come to an end and let no more snakes fall into the fire'
Mbh.1.58.2829 When king Janamejaya was about to gratify Astika by granting the boon, the snake Takshaka, thrown off Indra's hands, remained in mid air without actually falling.
Mbh.1.58.2830 King Janamejaya thereupon became curious, for Takshaka, afflicted with fear, did not at once fall into the fire although libations were poured in proper form into the blazing sacrificial Agni in his name'
Mbh.1.58.2838 The king Janamejaya of the Bharata race was himself pleased, and on the Ritwiks with the Sadasyas, and on all who had come there, the king, bestowed money by hundreds and thousands.
Mbh.1.58.2855 But go ye away, blessed be ye, or go away thou snake of virulent poison, and remember the words of Astika after the snake sacrifice of Janamejaya.
Mbh.1.59.2870 Saunaka said, That sacred history called the Mahabharata, spreading the fame of the Pandavas, which Krishna-Dwaipayana, asked by Janamejaya, caused to be duly recited after the completion of the sacrifice.
Mbh.1.60.2877 SECTION LX Adivansavatarana Parva continued Sauti said, Hearing that Janamejaya was installed in the snake-sacrifice, the learned Rishi Krishna-Dwaipayana went thither on the occasion.
Mbh.1.60.2884 And the high-souled Rishi, with his disciples all conversant with the Vedas and their branches, entered the sacrificial pavilion of the royal sage, Janamejaya.
Mbh.1.60.2885 And he saw that the king Janamejaya was seated in the sacrificial region like the god Indra, surrounded by numerous Sadasyas, by kings of various countries whose coronal locks had undergone the sacred bath, and by competent Ritwiks like unto Brahman himself.
Mbh.1.60.2886 And that foremost one of Bharata's race, the royal sage Janamejaya, beholding the Rishi come, advanced quickly with his followers and relatives in great joy.
Mbh.1.60.2890 And accepting those offerings from the Pandava Janamejaya and ordering the kine also not to be slain, Vyasa became much gratified.
Mbh.1.60.2893 And after all this, Janamejaya with all his Sadasyas, questioned that first of Brahmanas, with joined palms as follows: O Brahmana, thou hast seen with thy own eyes the acts of the Kurus and the Pandavas.
Mbh.1.60.2898 Hearing those words of Janamejaya, Krishna-Dwaipayana directed his disciple Vaisampayana seated by his side, saying, The discord that happened between the Kurus and the Pandavas of old, narrate all to the king even as thou hast heard from me'
Mbh.1.62.2962 SECTION LXII Adivansavatarana Parva continued Janamejaya said, O excellent Brahmana, thou hast, indeed, told me, in brief, the history, called Mahabharata, of the great acts of the Kurus.
Mbh.1.64.3190 SECTION LXIV Adivansavatarana Parva continued Janamejaya said, O Brahmana, those thou hast named and those thou hast not named, I wish to hear of them in detail, as also of other kings by thousands.
Mbh.1.65.3256 Janamejaya said, I desire to hear from the beginning of the births of the gods, the Danavas, the Gandharvas, the Apsaras, men, Yakshas and Rakshasas.
Mbh.1.67.3429 SECTION LXVII Sambhava Parva continued Janamejaya said, O worshipful one, I wish to hear from thee in detail about the birth, among men, of the gods, the Danavas, the Gandharvas, the Rakshasas, the lions, the tigers, and the other animals, the snakes, the birds, and in fact, of all creatures.
Mbh.1.67.3486 Madraka, and Karnaveshta, Siddhartha, and also Kitaka; Suvira, and Suvahu, and Mahavira, and also Valhika, Kratha, Vichitra, Suratha, and the handsome king Nila; and Chiravasa, and Bhumipala; and Dantavakra, and he who was called Durjaya; that tiger amongst kings named Rukmi; and king Janamejaya, Ashada, and Vayuvega, and also Bhuritejas; Ekalavya, and Sumitra, Vatadhana, and also Gomukha; the tribe of kings called the Karushakas, and also Khemadhurti; Srutayu, and Udvaha, and also Vrihatsena; Kshema, Ugratirtha, the king of the Kalingas; and Matimat, and he was known as king Iswara; these first of kings were all born of the Asura class called Krodhavasa.
Mbh.1.67.3513 Janamejaya said, O illustrious one, tell me the names of Dhritarashtra's sons according to the order of their birth beginning from the eldest'
Mbh.1.68.3594 SECTION LXVIII Sambhava Parva continued Janamejaya said, O Brahmana, I have, indeed, heard from thee this account of the incarnation, according to their portions, of the gods, the Danavas, the Rakshasas, and also of the Gandharvas and the Apsaras.
Mbh.1.69.3615 SECTION LXIX Sambhava Parva continued Janamejaya said, I desire to hear from thee about the birth and life of the high-souled Bharata and of the origin of Sakuntala.
Mbh.1.73.3855 Vaisampayana continued, O Janamejaya, having promised so unto her, the king went away.
Mbh.1.74.3876 And, O Janamejaya, he was possessed of beauty and magnanimity and every accomplishment.
Mbh.1.75.4120 And, O Janamejaya, the lord of creation, Daksha, then, from the desire of making creatures, begat fifty daughters.
Mbh.1.76.4192 SECTION LXXVI Sambhava Parva continued Janamejaya said, O thou of the wealth of asceticism, tell me how our ancestor Yayati, who is the tenth from Prajapati, obtained for a wife the unobtainable daughter of Sukra.
Mbh.1.76.4196 I will tell thee, in reply to thy question, O Janamejaya, how both Sukra and Vrishaparvan bestowed upon him, with due rites, their daughters, and how his union took place with Devayani in special.
Mbh.1.86.4819 Janamejaya said, I desire to hear from thee in detail why Yayati, having first obtained admission into heaven, was hurled therefrom, and why also he gained re-admittance.
Mbh.1.94.5135 SECTION XCIV Sambhava Parva continued Janamejaya said, O adorable one, I desire to hear the histories of those kings who were descended from Puru.
Mbh.1.94.5161 And, O Janamejaya, the eldest of them, Dushmanta, became king.
Mbh.1.94.5201 And it has been heard by us that Kuru's highly intelligent wife, Vahini, brought forth five sons, viz, Avikshit, Bhavishyanta, Chaitraratha, Muni and the celebrated Janamejaya.
Mbh.1.94.5203 In the race of these were born, as the fruit of their pious acts seven mighty car-warriors with Janamejaya at their head.
Mbh.1.94.5206 And the sons of Janamejaya were all endued with great strength and became celebrated all over the world.
Mbh.1.95.5218 SECTION XCV Sambhava Parva continued Janamejaya said, O Brahmana, I have now heard from thee this great history of my ancestors.
Mbh.1.95.5231 And Puru had a wife of the name of Kausalya, on whom he begat a son named Janamejaya who performed three horse-sacrifices and a sacrifice called Viswajit.
Mbh.1.95.5233 And Janamejaya had married Ananta, the daughter of Madhava, and begat upon her a son called Prachinwat.
Mbh.1.95.5355 And Parikshit married Madravati, thy mother, O king, and thou art born to her, O Janamejaya!
Mbh.1.102.5728 And the motion of their ornaments and armour, O Janamejaya, brilliant as these were, resembled meteoric flashes in the sky.
Mbh.1.107.6004 SECTION CVII Sambhava Parva continued Janamejaya said, What did the god of justice do for which he was cursed?
Mbh.1.115.6221 SECTION CXV Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Meanwhile, O Janamejaya, Dhritarashtra begat upon Gandhari a hundred sons, and upon a Vaisya wife another besides those hundred.
Mbh.1.115.6223 Janamejaya said, O best of Brahmanas, how did Gandhari bring forth those hundred sons and in how many years?
Mbh.1.116.6274 SECTION CXVI Sambhava Parva continued Janamejaya said, O sinless one, thou hast narrated to me from the beginning all about the birth of Dhritarashtra's hundred sons owing to the boon granted by the Rishi.
Mbh.1.117.6298 SECTION CXVII Sambhava Parva continued Janamejaya said, Please recite the names of Dhritarashtra's sons according to the order of their birth'
Mbh.1.118.6305 SECTION CXVIII Sambhava Parva continued Janamejaya said, O utterer of Brahma, thou hast recited everything about the extraordinary birth among men, of the sons of Dhritarashtra in consequence of the Rishi's grace.
Mbh.1.123.6588 SECTION CXXIII Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, O Janamejaya, when Gandhari's conception had been a full year old, it was then that Kunti summoned the eternal god of justice to obtain offspring from him.
