Mbh.1.1.118 And Dhritarashtra hearing the ill news of the success of the Pandavas and recollecting the resolutions of Duryodhana, Kama, and Sakuni, pondered for a while and addressed to Sanjaya the following speech, Attend, O Sanjaya, to all I am about to say, and it will not become thee to treat me with contempt.
Mbh.1.1.155 When I heard that Kama and Duryodhana resolved upon imprisoning Krishna displayed in himself the whole universe, then, O Sanjaya, I had no hope of success.

Mbh.1.67.3494 And, O king, his son the heroic Aswatthaman, of eyes like the lotus-petals, gifted with surpassing energy, and the terror of all foes, the great oppressor of all enemies, was born on earth, of the united portions of Mahadeva, Yama, Kama, and Krodha.
Mbh.1.67.3574 And because that hero of great fame had taken off his natural armour, therefore was he, the first son of Pritha, called Kama.
Mbh.1.67.3576 And, O king, know thou that Kama, the first of all exalted men, the foremost of all wielders of weapons, the slayer of foes, and the best portion of the maker of day, was the friend and counsellor of Duryodhana.
Mbh.1.74.3901 I do not remember having any connection with thee in respect of Dharma, Kama and Arthas.
Mbh.1.95.5245 And Ayutanayi took for a wife Kama, the daughter of Prithusravas.
Mbh.1.138.7369 Kama replied, When thou hast said it, I regard it as already accomplished.
Mbh.1.143.7716 SECTION CXLIII Jatugriha Parva Vaisampayana said, Then the son of Suvala Sakuni, king Duryodhana, Duhsasana and Kama, in consultation with one another, formed an evil conspiracy.
Mbh.1.154.8094 My heart as well as my body hath been pierced by the shafts of Kama Cupid.
Mbh.1.174.8890 SECTION CLXXIV Chaitraratha Parva continued The Gandharva continued, When that maiden disappeared, that feller of hostile ranks deprived of his senses by Kama concupiscence himself fell down on the earth.
Mbh.1.174.8897 O thou of large eyes, for thy sake it is, O thou of the splendour of the filaments of the lotus, that Kama is incessantly piercing me with his keen shafts without stopping for a moment!
Mbh.1.174.8898 O amiable and cheerful girl, I have been bitten by Kama who is even like a venomous viper.
Mbh.1.174.8902 O thou of eyes like lotus-petals, Kama is piercing me incessantly!
Mbh.1.186.9390 And there came also, O king, Duryodhana and the Kurus accompanied by Kama.
Mbh.1.188.9437 And the sons of Pritha also, of mighty arms, and the illustrious twin heroes, beholding Draupadi, were all likewise struck by the shafts of Kama.
Mbh.3.46.2416 Trembling with rage, and contracting her brows, she cursed Arjuna, saying, Since thou disregardest a woman come to thy mansion at the command of thy father and of her own motion, a woman, besides, who is pierced by the shafts of Kama, therefore, O Partha, thou shalt have to pass thy time among females unregarded, and as a dancer, and destitute of manhood and scorned as a eunuch
Mbh.3.120.6134 Kripa and Drona and Vikarna and Kama are not able to bear the keen arrows shot by Pradyumna.
Mbh.3.120.6149 Then there will remain no sons of Dhritarashtra on earth, nor the son of the charioteer Kama.
Mbh.3.234.11891 Hearing these words of the monarch, the son of Suvala, going unto Duryodhana, who was then sitting with Kama, told them everything in private.
Mbh.3.235.11893 SECTION CCXXXV Vaisampayana said, Hearing those words of Dhritarashtra, Sakuni, when the opportunity presented itself, aided by Kama, spoke unto Duryodhana these words, Having exiled the heroic Pandavas by thy own prowess, O Bharata, rule thou this earth without a rival like the slayer of Samvara ruling the heaven!
Mbh.3.238.11983 And near enough to the royal residence they also erected separate abodes for Kama and Sakuni and the brothers of the king.
Mbh.3.248.12279 SECTION CCXLVIII Kama continued, O king, this conduct of thine to-day appeareth to be childish.
Mbh.3.249.12301 Sakuni said, O son of the Kuru race, you have just heard what Kama hath said.
Mbh.3.250.12352 Other Asuras will also possess Bhishma and Drona and Kama and others.
Mbh.3.298.14717 If thou, O Kama, givest away thy beautiful ear-rings born with thee, thy life being shortened, thou wilt meet with death!
Mbh.3.298.14722 Hearing these words, Kama said, Who art thou that tellest me so, showing me such kindness?
Mbh.3.298.14727 Kama replied, Surely, this itself is highly fortunate for me that the god himself of splendour addresses me today, seeking my welfare.
Mbh.3.308.15070 SECTION CCCVIII Vaisampayana said, And when the king of the celestials presented himself in the guise of a Brahmana, beholding him, Kama said, Welcome'
Mbh.3.308.15076 Hearing these words, Kama, said, O Brahmana, I will give thee homestead land, and fair damsels, and kine, and fields; but my mail and ear-rings I am unable to give thee
Mbh.3.308.15084 Vaisampayana continued, When the illustrious slayer of Paka refused to ask for any other boon, Kama with a smile again addressed him, saying, O god of gods, even before this, I had recognised thee, O Lord!
Mbh.3.313.15560 Those rancorous enemies of ours Suyodhana, the wicked-minded Kama, and Suvala's son should they discover us, would do mighty wrong to the citizens and our friends!
Mbh.4.14.532 And beholding that lady endued with the splendour of a daughter of the celestials, treading the earth like a goddess, Kichaka, afflicted with the shafts of Kama, desired to possess her.
Mbh.4.14.557 Resembling in shape the beautiful buds of the lotus, these thy breast, O thou of fair eye-brows, are even as the whips of Kama that are urging me forward, O thou of sweet smiles, O damsel of slender waist, beholding that waist of thine marked with four wrinkles and measuring but a span, and slightly stooping forward because of the weight of thy breasts, and also looking on those graceful hips of thine broad as the banks of a river, the incurable fever of desire, O beauteous lady, afflicteth me sore.
Mbh.4.21.900 Of wicked soul, and vicious disposition, haughty and villainous, and always afflicted by the shafts of Kama, though repulsed repeatedly, if he sees me again, he will outrage me.
Mbh.4.26.1148 Hearing these words of Duryodhana, Kama said, Let other spies, abler and more cunning, and capable of accomplishing their object, quickly go hence, O Bharata.
Mbh.4.47.1810 SECTION XLVII Vaisampayana said, King Duryodhana then, on the field of battle said unto Bhishma, and unto Drona, that tiger among warriors, and unto Kripa, that mighty car-warrior, these words, Both myself and Kama had said this unto the preceptors I refer to the subject again, for I am not satisfied with having said it once.
Mbh.4.49.1898 What, however, O Kama, hath been achieved by thee single-handed like any of the sons of Pandu, each of whom had alone subjugated many lords of earth?
Mbh.4.49.1906 O Kama, he is a fool that would, without, skill in weapons and without strength, desire to fight with Partha who is so mighty and skilled in weapons?
Mbh.4.49.1912 Do not O Kama, act so rashly as to fight alone.
Mbh.4.51.1953 As for Kama, it is only out of regard for the duties of the Kshatriya order that he desireth to fight.
Mbh.4.51.1979 Vaisampayana continued, Then, O Bharata, Duryodhana assisted by Kama and Kripa, and the high-souled Bhishma pacified Drona'
Mbh.4.53.2034 And there are those great bowmen, Bhishma and Kripa and Kama.
Mbh.4.54.2086 Thus struck, that grinder of all adversaries in battle, that bull of the Kuru race, Jishnu wielding the Gandiva, like a lion awaked from slumber, furiously attacked Kama by means of straight-going arrows.
Mbh.4.60.2355 And taking another sharp and blazing arrow endued with great energy, the mighty son of Kunti pierced the breast of Kama.
Mbh.4.70.2742 The prosperity and prowess of this one afflict king Suyodhana with his followers including Kama and Suvala's son.
Mbh.5.111.5077 It was in this region that Kama, the wrath of Siva, Himavat, and Uma, all together shone brilliantly.
Mbh.6.121.6714 one, formerly, ascertaining his sire Santanu to be afflicted by Kama, this bull among men, resolved to draw up his vital steed,
Mbh.12.189.11329 Also, the divine Master of the universe, the lord of Uma, reduced Kama the deity of desire to extinction.
Mbh.13.14.1217 Who else is there that has been able to subjugate Kama, the god of desire?
Mbh.13.14.1386 Salutations to thee that art the destroyer of the triple city of the Asuras, to thee that art the destroyer of Daksha's sacrifice, to thee that art the destroyer of the body of Kama the deity of Desire, to thee that wieldest the rod of destruction.
Mbh.13.17.1841 Thou art Kama, the God of Desire.
Mbh.13.19.3042 There is no pleasure, save that which waits upon Kama desire, which women can derive from a person of the other sex.
Mbh.13.85.7611 That Will is known by the name of Kama and is identical with Rudra's seed a portion of which fell into the blazing form of Agni.
