MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.110 Yudhishthira, after having, through the wise counsels of Vasudeva and by the valour of Bhimasena and Arjuna, slain Jarasandha the king of Magadha and the proud Chaidya, acquired the right to perform the grand sacrifice of Rajasuya abounding in provisions and offering and fraught with transcendent merits.
Mbh.1.1.134 When I heard that Jarasandha, the foremost of the royal line of Magadha, and blazing in the midst of the Kshatriyas, had been slain by Bhima with his bare arms alone, then, O Sanjaya, I had no hope of success.
Mbh.1.2.301 Then come Sabha, Mantra, Jarasandha, Digvijaya general campaign.
Mbh.1.2.378 The subjects of this parva are the establishment of the grand hall by the Pandavas; their review of their retainers; the description of the lokapalas by Narada well-acquainted with the celestial regions; the preparations for the Rajasuya sacrifice; the destruction of Jarasandha; the deliverance by Vasudeva of the princes confined in the mountain-pass; the campaign of universal conquest by the Pandavas; the arrival of the princes at the Rajasuya sacrifice with tribute; the destruction of Sisupala on the occasion of the sacrifice, in connection with offering of arghya; Bhimasena's ridicule of Duryodhana in the assembly; Duryodhana's sorrow and envy at the sight of the magnificent scale on which the arrangements had been made; the indignation of Duryodhana in consequence, and the preparations for the game of dice; the defeat of Yudhishthira at play by the wily Sakuni; the deliverance by Dhritarashtra of his afflicted daughter-in-law Draupadi plunged in the sea of distress caused by the gambling, as of a boat tossed about by the tempestuous waves.
Mbh.1.67.3431 Vaisampayana said, O king of men, I shall first tell thee all about those celestials and Danavas that were born among men, The first of Danavas, who was known by the name of Viprachitti, became that bull among men, noted as Jarasandha.

Mbh.1.188.9450 Then king Jarasandha endued with great strength and powers, approaching the bow stood there for some moment, fixed and motionless like a mountain.
Mbh.2.14.582 At present, however, O monarch, king Jarasandha, overcoming that prosperity enjoyed by their whole order, and overpowering them by his energy hath set himself over the heads of all these kings.
Mbh.2.14.583 And Jarasandha, enjoying the sovereignty over the middle portion of the earth Mathura, resolved to create a disunion amongst ourselves.
Mbh.2.14.586 And, O great king, the mighty Vaka, the king of the Karushas, capable of fighting by putting forth his powers of illusion, waiteth, upon Jarasandha, as his disciple.
Mbh.2.14.587 There are two others, Hansa and Dimvaka, of great energy and great soul, who have sought the shelter of the mighty Jarasandha.
Mbh.2.14.588 There are others also viz, Dantavakra, Karusha, Karava, Meghavahana, that wait upon Jarasandha.
Mbh.2.14.589 He also that beareth on his head that gem which is known as the most wonderful on earth, that king of the Yavanas, who hath chastised Muru and Naraka, whose power is unlimited, and who ruleth the west like another Varuna, who is called Bhagadatta, and who is the old friend of thy father, hath bowed his head before Jarasandha, by speech and specially by act.
Mbh.2.14.592 He whom I did not formerly slay, that wicked wretch amongst the Chedis, who represented himself in this world as a divine personage and who hath become known also as such, and who always beareth, from foolishness, the signs that distinguish me that king of Vanga Pundra and the Kiratas, endowed with great strength, and who is known on earth by the names of Paundraka and Vasudeva hath also espoused the side of Jarasandha.
Mbh.2.14.597 And, O exalted one, the eighteen tribes of the Bhojas, from fear of Jarasandha, have all fled towards the west; so also have the Surasenas, the Bhadrakas, the Vodhas, the Salwas, the Patachchavas, the Susthalas, the Mukuttas, and the Kulindas, along with the Kuntis.
Mbh.2.14.600 And so all the Panchalas, alarmed at the power of Jarasandha, have left their own kingdom and fled in all directions.
Mbh.2.14.601 Some time before, the foolish Kansa, having persecuted the Yadavas, married two of the daughters of Jarasandha.
Mbh.2.14.607 But after the immediate cause of fear was removed by the death of Kansa, Jarasandha, his father-in-law, took up arms.
Mbh.2.14.611 The mighty Jarasandha, being united with them, becomes incapable, I think, of being vanquished by even the three worlds.
Mbh.2.14.617 Then, O bull of the Bharata race, king Jarasandha, hearing that both Hansa and Dimvaka had been killed, returned to his kingdom with an empty heart.
Mbh.2.14.618 After Jarasandha had returned, O slayer of all foes, we were filled with pleasure and continued to live at Mathura.
Mbh.2.14.619 Then the widow of Hansa and the daughter of Jarasandha, that handsome woman with eyes like lotus-petals, grieved at the death of her lord, went unto her father, and repeatedly urged, O Monarch, the king of Magadha, saying, O slayer of all foes, kill thou the slayer of my husband,
Mbh.2.14.621 Dividing our large wealth into small portions so as to make each portion easily portable, we fled from fear of Jarasandha, with our cousins and relatives.
Mbh.2.14.628 And, O tiger of the Kuru race, considering the inaccessibility of that first of mountains and regarding themselves as having already crossed the fear of Jarasandha, the descendants of Madhu have become exceedingly glad.
Mbh.2.14.629 Thus, O king, though possessed of strength and energy, yet from the oppressions of Jarasandha we have been obliged to repair to the mountains of Gomanta, measuring three Yojanas in length.
Mbh.2.14.643 But this is my judgment, O king, that thou wilt not be able to celebrate the Rajasuya sacrifice as long as the mighty Jarasandha liveth.
Mbh.2.14.645 O slayer of all enemies, king Jarasandha, desirous of offering in sacrifice hundred monarchs, adored for his fierce ascetic penances the illustrious god of gods, the lord of Uma.
Mbh.2.14.646 It is by this means that the kings of the earth have been vanquished by Jarasandha.
Mbh.2.14.649 We also, O king, from fear of Jarasandha, at one time had to leave Mathura and fly to the city of Dwaravati.
Mbh.2.14.650 If, O great king, thou desirest to perform this sacrifice, strive to release the kings confined by Jarasandha, as also to compass his death.
Mbh.2.15.668 But, O exalted one, we also were all frightened by the fear of Jarasandha and, O sinless one, by the wickedness of that monarch.
Mbh.2.15.671 Madhava, O thou of the Vrishni race, I am repeatedly depressed by the thought whether Jarasandha is capable or not of being slain by thee, by Rama, by Bhimasena, or by Arjuna.
Mbh.2.15.682 Know, O bull of the Kuru race, that Jarasandha, the son of Vrihadratha, is even such ie, a candidate for the imperial dignity.
Mbh.2.15.683 A hundred dynasties of kings have become unable to oppose Jarasandha.
Mbh.2.15.685 Kings that are wearers of jewels worship Jarasandha with presents of jewels.
Mbh.2.15.697 And he that will vanquish Jarasandha will surely become the emperor of all the Kshatriyas
Mbh.2.16.698 SECTION XVI Yudhishthira said, Desirous of the imperial dignity but acting from selfish motives and relying upon courage alone, how, O Krishna, can I despatch ye unto Jarasandha?
Mbh.2.16.701 Yama himself cannot vanquish in battle the mighty host of Jarasandha that is endued, besides, with terrible valour.
Mbh.2.16.725 If, for the purpose of our sacrifice, we endeavour to slay Jarasandha and rescue the kings kept by him for a cruel purpose, there is no higher act which we could employ ourselves in.
Mbh.2.17.747 That bull among men, Jarasandha, alone enjoyeth unfaded glory, like unto him who is the self in the heart of every created being.
Mbh.2.17.750 Yudhishthira said, O Krishna, who is this Jarasandha?
Mbh.2.17.752 Krishna said, Hear, O monarch, who Jarasandha is; what his energy; and what is his prowess; and why also he hath been spared by us, Even though he hath repeatedly offended us.
Mbh.2.18.825 And he said that because the child had been united by Jara, he should be called Jarasandha ie, united by Jara.
Mbh.2.19.845 The lord of the Magadhas then, re-entering his capital, and calling together his friends and relations, installed Jarasandha, on the throne.
Mbh.2.19.847 And after the installation of Jarasandha king Vrihadratha followed by his two wives became an inmate of an ascetic asylum in the woods.
Mbh.2.19.848 And, O king, after his father and mothers had retired into the woods, Jarasandha by his valour brought numerous kings under his sway
Mbh.2.19.850 King Jarasandha, also, as uttered by Kausika, having received those numerous boons ruled his kingdom like a father.
Mbh.2.19.854 The handsome mace hurled by Jarasandha fell near Mathura at a distance of ninety-nine yojanas from Gririvraja The citizens beholding the circumstance well, went unto Krishna and informed him of the fall of the mace.
Mbh.2.19.856 Jarasandha had two supporters called Hansa and Dimvaka, both of whom were incapable of being slain by weapons.
Mbh.2.19.859 They two and Jarasandha, I believe, are more than a match for three worlds.
Mbh.2.20.862 The time hath, therefore come for the destruction of Jarasandha.
Mbh.2.20.875 I who stay under thy command regard that Jarasandha is already slain, that the monarchs confined by him have already been set free, that the Rajasuya hath already been accomplished by me.
Mbh.2.20.894 And the people, beholding Krishna and Arjuna, both of whom had never before been vanquished in battle, with Bhima in the van, all ready to achieve the same task, regarded Jarasandha as already slain.
Mbh.2.21.912 Owning such a delightful and impregnable city, Jarasandha is ever bent on seeking the fruition of his purposes unlike other monarchs.
Mbh.2.21.920 And desirous of slaying Jarasandha they seemed by that act of theirs to place their feet upon the head of their foe.
Mbh.2.21.923 And it so happened that the learned Brahmanas residing within the city saw many evil omens which they reported to Jarasandha.
Mbh.2.21.925 And king Jarasandha also, possessed of great prowess, with a view to warding of those evils, entered upon the celebration of a sacrifice, with proper vows and fasts.
Mbh.2.21.926 Meanwhile, O Bharata, the brothers unarmed, or rather with their bare arms as their only weapons, desirous of fighting with Jarasandha, entered the capital in the guise of Brahmanas.
Mbh.2.21.930 And attired in robes of various colours and decked in garlands and ear-rings the heroes entered the abode of Jarasandha possessed of great intelligence, like Himalayan lions eyeing cattle-folds.
Mbh.2.21.934 And Jarasandha rising up in haste received them with water to wash their feet with, and honey and the other ingredients of the Arghya, with gifts of kine, and with other forms of respect.
Mbh.2.21.945 Those bulls among men, those slayers of all foes, on the other hand, O thou best of the Bharata race, beholding king Jarasandha, said, Let salvation be attained by thee, O king, without difficulty'
Mbh.2.21.947 And, O king of kings, Jarasandha then said unto those sons of Pandu and him of the Yadu race, all disguised as Brahmanas, Take your seats'
Mbh.2.21.949 And king Jarasandha, O thou of the Kuru race, firmly devoted to truth, censuring the disguised guests, said unto them, It is well known to me that in the whole world Brahmanas in the observance of Snataka vow never deck their persons with garlands and fragrant paste unseasonably.
Mbh.2.22.972 SECTION XXII Jarasandha said, I do not recollect if I ever acted injuriously towards ye!
Mbh.2.22.990 Fool as thou art, who else, O Jarasandha, is capable of behaving in this way?
Mbh.2.22.1017 Jarasandha said, I never make a captive of a king without first vanquishing him.
Mbh.2.22.1022 Vaisampayana said, Having spoken thus, and desiring to fight with those heroes of terrible achievements, king Jarasandha ordered his son Sahadeva to be installed on the throne.
Mbh.2.22.1025 And, O monarch, that tiger among men, the lord Sauri ever devoted to truth, the slayer of Madhu, the younger brother of Haladhara, the foremost of all persons having their senses under complete control, keeping in view the command of Brahma and remembering that the ruler of Magadha was destined to be slain in battle by Bhima and not by the descendant of Madhu Yadavas, desired not to slay himself king Jarasandha, that foremost of all men endued with strength, that hero possessed of the prowess of a tiger, that warrior of terrible valour
Mbh.2.23.1026 SECTION XXIII Vaisampayana said, then that foremost of all speakers, Krishna of the Yadava race, addressing king Jarasandha who was resolved upon fighting, said, O king, with whom amongst us three dost thou desire to fight?
Mbh.2.23.1028 Thus addressed, the ruler of Magadha, king Jarasandha of great splendour, expressed his desire for fighting with Bhima.
Mbh.2.23.1029 The priest then, bringing with him the yellow pigment obtained from the cow and garlands of flowers and other auspicious articles, as also various excellent medicines for restoring lost consciousness and alleviating pain, approached Jarasandha, panting for battle.
Mbh.2.23.1030 The king Jarasandha, on whose behalf propitiatory ceremonies with benedictions were performed by a renowned Brahmana, remembering the duty of a Kshatriya dressed himself for battle.
Mbh.2.23.1031 Taking off his crown and binding his hair properly, Jarasandha stood up like an ocean bursting its continents.
Mbh.2.23.1035 And saying this, Jarasandha, that represser of all foes endued, rushed with great energy at Bhimasena like the Asura Vala or old who rushed at the chief of the celestials.
Mbh.2.23.1036 And the mighty Bhimasena, on whose behalf the gods had been invoked by Krishna, that cousin of his, having consulted with advanced towards Jarasandha, impelled by the desire of fight.
Mbh.2.23.1057 And, O monarch, the mighty Bhima and Jarasandha fought terribly on in those lists, driving the crowd at times by the motions of their hands like Vritra and Vasava of old.
Mbh.2.23.1067 Then that slayer of hostile heroes, the son of Pandu, thus addressed by Krishna, understood the plight of Jarasandha and forthwith resolved upon taking his life.
Mbh.2.23.1068 And that foremost of all men endued with strength, that prince of the Kuru race, desirous of vanquishing the hitherto unvanquished Jarasandha, mustered all his strength and courage
Mbh.2.24.1069 SECTION XXIV Vaisampayana said, thus addressed, Bhima firmly resolved upon slaying Jarasandha, replied unto Krishna of the Yadu race, saying, O tiger of the Yadu race, O Krishna, this wretch that yet stayeth before me with sufficient strength and bent upon fight, should not be forgiven by me.
Mbh.2.24.1070 Hearing these words of Vrikodara Bhima, that tiger among men, Krishna, desiring to encourage that hero to accomplish the death of Jarasandha without any delay, answered, O Bhima, exhibit today upon Jarasandha the strength thou hast luckily derived, the might thou hast obtained from thy father, the god Maruta'
Mbh.2.24.1071 Thus addressed by Krishna, Bhima, that slayer of foes, holding up in the air the powerful Jarasandha, began to whirl him on high.
Mbh.2.24.1074 And the roar of the Pandava mingling with that death knell of Jarasandha, while he was being broken on Bhima's knee, caused a loud uproar that struck fear into the heart of every creature.
Mbh.2.24.1080 And having vanquished his foe, Krishna furnished with weapons and unwounded and accompanied by the kings he had released, came out of Girivraja riding in that celestial car of Jarasandha.
Mbh.2.24.1087 The people of Magadha, behold the long-armed Krishna along with the two brothers, seated in that car of Jarasandha wondered much.
Mbh.2.24.1097 The car upon which Krishna rode had been obtained by king Vasu from Vasava, and from Vasu by Vrihadratha, and from the latter in due course by king Jarasandha.
Mbh.2.24.1100 And the kings who had been released from confinement worshipped the slayer of Madhu with reverence, and addressing him with eulogies said, O thou of long arms, thou hast to-day rescued us, sunk in the deep mire of sorrow in the hand of Jarasandha.
Mbh.2.24.1102 O Vishnu, languishing as we all were in the terrible hill-fort of Jarasandha, it was verily from sheer good fortune alone that thou hast rescued us, O son of the Yadu race, and achieved thereby a remarkable reputation.
Mbh.2.24.1111 And Govinda, moved by kindness towards them, took a portion of those presents, Then the son of Jarasandha, the high-souled Sahadeva, accompanied by his relatives and the principal officers of state, and with his priest in front came thither.
Mbh.2.24.1115 And the strong-armed and illustrious son of Jarasandha, thus installed on the throne by those most exalted of men and having obtained the friendship of Krishna and treated with respect and kindness by the two sons of Pritha, re-entered the city of his father.
Mbh.2.24.1117 Accompanied by the two sons of Pandu, Achyuta Krishna arrived at Indraprastha, and approaching Yudhishthira joyfully addressing that monarch said, O best of kings, from good fortune, the mighty Jarasandha hath been slain by Bhima, and the kings confined at Girivraja have been all set free.
Mbh.2.24.1120 And the monarch who had no enemy, having obtained victory through the agency of his brothers in consequence of the death of Jarasandha, gave himself up to pleasure and merriment with all his brothers.
Mbh.2.24.1124 Janardana of great intelligence, caused his foe Jarasandha to be slain through the instrumentality of the Pandavas.
Mbh.2.24.1125 And, O Bharata, that chastiser of all foes having thus caused Jarasandha to be slain, took leave of Yudhishthira and Pritha, and Draupadi and Subhadra, and Bhimasena and Arjuna and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva.
Mbh.2.29.1236 After bringing the son of Jarasandha under his sway by conciliation and making him pay tribute, the hero then accompanied by the monarchs he had vanquished, marched against Kansa.
Mbh.2.36.1524 This wretch born in the race of the Vrishnis unrighteously slew of old the illustrious king Jarasandha.
Mbh.2.41.1662 SECTION XLI Sisupala said, That mighty king Jarasandha who desired not to fight with Krishna, saying He is a slave' was worthy of my greatest esteem.
Mbh.2.41.1664 Entering by an improper gate, disguised as a Brahmana, thus Krishna observed the strength of king Jarasandha.
Mbh.2.41.1666 And when Jarasandha, O thou of the Kuru race, asked Krishna and Bhima and Dhananjaya to eat, it was this Krishna that refused that monarch's request.
Mbh.2.43.1726 Praise thou, O Bhishma, this Karna, the ruler of the territories of Anga and Vanga, who is equal in strength unto him of a thousand eyes, who draweth a large bow, who endued with mighty arms owneth celestial ear-rings of heavenly make with which he was born and this coat of mail possessing the splendour of the rising sun, who vanquished in a wrestling encounter the invincible Jarasandha equal unto Vasava himself, and who tore and mangled that monarch.
Mbh.2.79.3454 Thou knowest, O king, that the illustrious and mighty king Jarasandha was slain in battle by Bhima with his bare arms alone.

Mbh.5.50.2880 Sahadeva, the son of Jarasandha, and Jayatsena, both unrivalled heroes in battle, are resolved upon fighting for the Pandavas.
Mbh.5.51.2919 It was this Bhima who, having entered of old, with Vasudeva's aid, the innermost apartments of Jarasandha, overthrew that king endued with great energy; that lord of Magadha, the mighty Jarasandha, having fully brought under his subjection the goddess Earth, oppressed her by his energy.
Mbh.5.57.3151 And the son of Jarasandha, the king of Magadha, and Dhrishtaketu, the king of the Chedis, have separately come there, each accompanied by an Akshauhini of troops.
Mbh.5.66.3430 O Sanjaya, our grandsire, the son of Santanu, and Dhritarashtra, and Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and king Vahlika, and Drona's son, and Somadatta, and Sakuni the son of Suvala; and Dussasana, and Sala, and Purumitra, and Vivingsati; Vikarna, and Chitrasena, and king Jayatsena, and Vinda and Anuvinda, the two chiefs of Avanti, and Bhurisravas, and king Bhagadatta, and king Jarasandha and other rulers of the earth, assembled there to fight for the good of the Kauravas, are all on the eve of death.

Mbh.7.179.9729 SECTION CLXXXI Arjuna said, How, O Janardana, for our good, and by what means, were those lords of the earth, viz, Jarasandha and the others, slain'
Mbh.7.179.9730 Vasudeva said, If Jarasandha, and the ruler of the Chedis, and the mighty son of the Nishada king, had not been slain, they would have become terrible.
Mbh.7.179.9735 Indeed, the Suta's son, and Jarasandha, and the ruler of the Chedis, and the son of the Nishada adopting the son of Suyodhana, would have succeeded in conquering the whole earth.
Mbh.7.179.9739 On one occasion, assailed by Valadeva, Jarasandha, excited with wrath, hurled for our destruction a mace capable of slaying all creatures.
Mbh.7.179.9744 She, O prince, had united that slayer of foes, and, therefore, was the latter called Jarasandha.
Mbh.7.179.9745 Jarasandha had been made up of two halves of one child.
Mbh.7.179.9746 And because it was Jara that had united those two halves, it was for this that he came to be called Jarasandha
