MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.2.366 The Sambhava parva narrates the birth of various kings and heroes, and that of the sage, Krishna Dwaipayana: the partial incarnations of deities, the generation of Danavas and Yakshas of great prowess, and serpents, Gandharvas, birds, and of all creatures; and lastly, of the life and adventures of king Bharata, the progenitor of the line that goes by his name, the son born of Sakuntala in the hermitage of the ascetic Kanwa.
Mbh.1.70.3693 And that bull among men, desirous of beholding the great Rishi of ascetic wealth, the illustrious Kanwa of the race of Kasyapa, one who possessed every virtue and who, for his splendour, could be gazed at with difficulty, approached that forest resounding with the notes of maddened peacocks and like unto the gardens of the great Gandharva, Chitraratha, himself.
Mbh.1.71.3720 And entering quite alone he saw not the Rishi Kanwa of rigid vows.
Mbh.1.71.3728 The king, duly worshipped by her, said unto that maiden of faultless features and sweet speech, I have come to worship the highly-blessed Rishi Kanwa.
Mbh.1.71.3742 And thus addressed by the monarch, the maiden smilingly replied in these sweet words, O Dushmanta, I am the daughter of the virtuous, wise, high-souled, and illustrious ascetic Kanwa'
Mbh.1.71.3749 All that the illustrious one Kanwa told him, hear now from me, O king!
Mbh.1.71.3750 My father Kanwa, in answer to that Rishi's enquiries, said, Viswamitra, of old, having been engaged in the austerest penances alarmed Indra, the chief of the celestials, who thought that the mighty ascetic of blazing energy would, by his penances, hurl him down from his high seat in heaven'
Mbh.1.72.3788 SECTION LXXII Sambhava Parva continued Kanwa continued, And Sakra, thus addressed by her, then commanded him who could approach every place viz, the god of the wind to be present with Menaka at the time she would be before the Rishi.
Mbh.1.72.3814 O king of men, it is thus that thou must know I am the daughter of Kanwa.
Mbh.1.72.3815 And not knowing my real father, I regard Kanwa as my father.
Mbh.1.73.3859 The moment the king had left, Kanwa arrived at his abode.
Mbh.1.73.3871 Kanwa replied, O thou of the fairest complexion, for thy sake I am inclined to bless him.
Mbh.1.74.3877 And that first of virtuous men, Kanwa, caused all the rites of religion to be performed in respect of that intelligent child thriving day by day.
Mbh.1.74.3886 And beholding the strength of the boy, Kanwa commanded his disciples, saying, Bear ye without delay this Sakuntala with her son from this abode to that of her husband, blessed with every auspicious sign.
Mbh.1.74.3898 Call to mind, O thou of great good fortune, the agreement thou hadst made on the occasion of thy union with me in the asylum of Kanwa'
Mbh.1.74.4100 And Kanwa was the chief priest at those sacrifices, in which the offerings to Brahmanas were great.
Mbh.1.74.4102 And Bharata gave unto Kanwa a thousand gold coins as the sacerdotal fee.
Mbh.2.7.328 And Sahadeva, and Sunitha, and Valmiki of great ascetic merit; and Samika of truthful speech, and Prachetas ever fulfilling their promises, and Medhatithi, and Vamadeva, and Pulastya, Pulaha and Kratu; and Maruta and Marichi, and Sthanu of great ascetic merit; and Kakshivat, and Gautama, and Tarkhya, and also the Muni Vaishwanara; and the Muni Kalakavrikhiya and Asravya, and also Hiranmaya, and Samvartta, and Dehavya, and Viswaksena of great energy; and Kanwa, and Katyayana, O king, and Gargya, and Kaushika, all are present there along with the celestial waters and plants; and faith, and intelligence, and the goddess of learning, and wealth, religion, and pleasure; and lightning.
Mbh.3.82.4011 One should next proceed to the beautiful asylum of Kanwa, which is worshipped by the whole world.
Mbh.3.88.4818 Then, O king, it is said that in the region on the north of the Praveni, and about the sacred asylum of Kanwa, are many woody retreats of ascetics.
Mbh.5.97.4604 SECTION XCVII Vaisampayana said, Having listened to the words of Jamadagnya, the illustrious Rishi Kanwa also said these words unto Duryodhana in that assembly of the Kurus'
Mbh.5.97.4605 Kanwa said, Brahman, the Grandsire of the universe, is indestructible and eternal.
Mbh.5.97.4629 Kanwa continued, And it so happened that amongst the gods, the Daityas and Gandharvas, men and numerous Rishis, none was regarded by Matali as an eligible husband for his daughter.
Mbh.5.98.4634 SECTION XCVIII Kanwa said, When Matali was wending his way, he saw the great Rishi Narada proceeding at his pleasure to pay a visit to Varuna the god of the waters.
Mbh.5.103.4779 Kanwa continued, Matali, meanwhile, had been looking attentively at a person that stood by.
Mbh.5.103.4786 Kanwa continued, Beholding Matali's gratification at seeing the Naga called Sumukha, Narada informed him of the nobility of his parentage and of his feats.
Mbh.5.104.4812 Kanwa continued, Thus addressed by Narada, Aryaka beholding his grandson elected as a bridegroom and remembering the death of his son was filled with delight and sorrow at the same time.
Mbh.5.104.4821 Kanwa continued, Matali then said unto Aryaka, I have formed a plan.
Mbh.5.104.4829 Kanwa continued, Hearing all that Narada said, Vishnu directed Purandara, the Lord of the universe, saying, Let Amrita be given to this youth, and let him be made immortal like gods themselves.
Mbh.5.105.4839 SECTION CV Kanwa said, Meanwhile, O Bharata, the mighty Garuda heard what had happened, viz, the bestowal by Sakra of length of days on the Naga Sumukha.
Mbh.5.105.4867 Kanwa continued, Hearing the proud words of that bird foreshadowing danger the bearer of the discus, provoking Tarkshya still more, said unto him, Though so very weak, why dost thou, O Garuda, yet regard thyself strong, O oviparous creature, it ill behoveth thee to vaunt thus in our presence.
Mbh.5.105.4888 Kanwa continued, In the same way, O son of Gandhari, thou livest, O son, as long as thou approachest not the heroic sons of Pandu in battle.
Mbh.6.23.1052 Dwaipayana and Narada, and Kanwa, and the sinless Rama, had all prevented thy son.
Mbh.7.66.2851 Possessed of great fame, Bharata then gave ten thousand billions of coins, made of the most pure gold, unto Kanwa who had brought up his mother Sakuntala as his own daughter.
Mbh.8.2.35 Counsels for thy good had also been uttered in the assembly by Rama and Narada and Kanwa and others.
Mbh.12.1.7 Among them were the Island-born Vyasa, and Narada, and the great Rishi Devala, and Devasthana, and Kanwa.
Mbh.12.29.1415 Erecting numerous sacrificial altars, he gave away innumerable horses and untold wealth unto the sage Kanwa
Mbh.12.207.12589 These, and Kanwa son of Rishi Medhatithi, and Varhishada, and the well-known seven Rishis who are the progenitors of the three worlds, all reside in the East.
