Mbh.3.82.4028 He that, leading a Brahmacharya mode of life batheth in the tirtha called Pinga, obtaineth, O tiger among kings, the merit of the gift of a hundred Kapila kine.

Mbh.3.84.4496 There, O king, on the mountains, the cow called Kapila used to range with her calf.
Mbh.3.107.5500 And they saw the magnanimous Kapila, who looked like a perfect mass of splendour.
Mbh.3.107.5503 And they being incensed, sent forward by their fate, paid no heed to the presence of the magnanimous Kapila, and ran forward with a view to seizing the horse.
Mbh.3.107.5505 Kapila, the most righteous of saints, he whom the great sages name as Kapila Vasudeva, assumed a fiery look, and the mighty saint shot flames towards them, and thereby burnt down the dull-headed sons of Sagara.
Mbh.3.107.5531 And by that very passage he entered into the sea, and beheld that illustrious Kapila and that same horse.
Mbh.3.107.5533 Then, O great king, Kapila was pleased with Ansuman, and that saint of a virtuous soul told him to ask for a favour from him.
Mbh.3.107.5535 Then the mighty chief of saints, Kapila spake to him, saying, I shall grant thee everything that thou desirest, O stainless prince.
Mbh.3.107.5546 Thus addressed by the illustrious Kapila, Ansuman took the horse with him, and came back to the sacrificial yard of the mighty-minded Sagara.
Mbh.3.108.5565 And he of the powerful arm came to learn how his forefathers had met an awful end from Kapila of mighty soul, and how they had been unable to attain the region of gods.
Mbh.3.108.5587 my father's fathers, while searching for the horse, were sent by Kapila to the abode of the god of death.
Mbh.3.108.5588 And those same sixty thousand sons of Sagara of mighty soul, having met with the majestic Kapila, perished, to a soul in an instant of time.
Mbh.3.199.10127 A person, without doubt, rescueth himself by the gift of a Kapila cow.
Mbh.3.199.10128 Therefore, should one give away a Kapila cow decked with ornaments unto Brahmanas.
Mbh.3.199.10198 O thou foremost of the Bharatas, the merit equal to that of giving away a Kapila cow in the tirtha called Jyeshtha-Pushkara arises from washing the feet of Brahmanas.
Mbh.3.203.10444 And enraged, the Asura began to swallow those various weapons that were hurled at him and he vomited from his mouth fiery flames like unto those of the fire called Samvarta that appeareth at the end of the Yuga and by those flames of his, the Asura consumed all the sons of the king and, O tiger among men, like the Lord Kapila of old consuming the sons of king Sagara, the infuriated Asura overwhelming the triple world with the flames vomited from his mouth, achieved that wonderful feat in a moment.
Mbh.3.220.11184 That divine spirit whose course is marked with black and white stains, who is the supporter of fire, and who, though free from sin, is the accomplisher of desired karma, whom the wise regard as a great Rishi, is the fire Kapila, the propounder of the Yoga system called Sankhya.

Mbh.5.109.5031 That divine sage afterwards came to be known by the name of Kapila, and it was by him that the sixty thousand sons of Sagara were afflicted.
Mbh.6.9.498 Aryans and Mlecchas, O Kauravya, and many races, O lord, mixed of the two elements, drink the waters of the following rivers, viz, magnificent Ganga, Sindhu, and Saraswati; of Godavari, and Narmada, and the large river called Yamuna; of Dhrishadwati, and Vipapa, and Vipasa and Sthulavaluka; of the river Vetravati, and that other one called Krishna-vena; of Iravati, and Vitasta, and Payosyini, and Devika; of Vedasmrita and Vedavati, and Tridiva, and Ikshumalavi of Karishini, and Chitravaha, and the river called Chitrasena; of Gomati, and Dhutapada and the large river called Gandaki, of Kausiki, and Nischitra, and Kirtya, and Nichita, and Lohatarini of Rashasi and Satakumbha, and also Sarayu; of Charmanwati, and Vetravati and Hastisoma, and Disa; of the river called Saravati, and Venna, and Bhimarathi; of Kaveri, and Chuluka, and Vina, and Satavala; of Nivara, and Mahila, and Suprayoga, O king; of Pavitra, and Kundala, and Rajani, and Puramalini; of Purvabhirama, and Vira, and Bhima, and Oghavati; of Palasini, and Papahara, and Mahendra, and Patalavati, of Karishini, and Asikni, and the large river Kusachira: of Makari, and Pravara, and Mena, and Hema, and Dhritavati; of Puravati, and Anushna, and Saivya, and Kapi, O Bharata; of Sadanira, and Adhrishya, and the mighty stream Kusadhara; of Sadakanta, and Siva, and Viravati; of Vatsu, and Suvastu, and Kampana with Hiranwati; of Vara, and the mighty river Panchami, of Rathachitra, and Jyotiratha, and Viswamitra, and Kapinjala; of Upendra, and Vahula, and Kuchira, and Madhuvahini: of Vinadi, and Pinjala, and Vena, and the great river Pungavena; of Vidisa and Krishna-vena, and Tamra, and Kapila, of Salu, and Suvama, the Vedaswa, and the mighty river Harisrava; of Sighra, and Pischala, and the river Bharadwaji, of the river Kausiki, and Sona, and Chandrama; of Durgamantrasila, and Brahma-vodhya, and Vrihadvati; of Yaksha, and Rohi, and Yamvunadi; of Sunasa and Tamasa, and Dasi, and Vasa, and Varuna, and Asi; of Nila, and Dhrimati, and the mighty river Parnasa; of Pomasi, and Vrishabha, and Brahma-meddhya, and Vrihaddhani.

Mbh.12.35.1849 One that gives away five and twenty thousand kine of the Kapila species and while all of them have calved, becomes cleansed of all his sins.
Mbh.12.43.2182 Thou art the Creator, thou art the sire of the celestial physicians, thou art the sage Kapila, and thou art the Dwarf
Mbh.12.47.2294 Surrounded by Vyasa conversant with the Vedas by the celestial Rishi Narada, by Devasthana, by Asmaka Sumantu, by Jaimini, by the high-souled Paila, by Sandilya, by Devarata, by Maitreya of great intelligence, by Asita and Vasishtha and the high-souled Kausika, by Harita and Lomasa and Atri's son of great intelligence, by Vrihaspati and Sukra and the great sage Chyavana, by Sanatkumara and Kapila and Valmiki and Tumvuru and Kuru, by Maudgalya and Rama of Bhrigu's race, and the great sage Trinavindu, by Pippalada and Vayu and Samvarta and Pulaha and Katha, by Kasyapa and Pulastya and Kratu and Daksha and Parasara, by Marichi and Angiras and Kasmya and Gautama and the sage Galava, by Dhaumya and Vibhanda and Mandavya and Dhaumra and Krishnanubhautika, by Uluka, that foremost of Brahmanas and the great sage Markandeya, by Bhaskari and Purana and Krishna and Suta, that foremost of virtuous persons, surrounded by these and many other highly-blessed sages of great souls and possessed of faith and self-restraint and tranquillity of mind, the Kuru hero looked like the Moon in the midst of the planets and the stars.
Mbh.12.217.13118 Once upon a time a great ascetic of the name of Panchasikha, the son of Kapila, having roamed over the whole world, arrived at Mithila.
Mbh.12.217.13122 It seemed that he went about, amazing the world, having assumed the form of none else than that great Rishi, that lord of creatures, whom the followers of the Sankhya doctrine knew by the name of Kapila.
Mbh.12.217.13135 There was a certain Brahmani of the name of Kapila.
Mbh.12.217.13138 In consequence of this, he came to be known as the son of Kapila and his understanding became fixed on Brahma.
Mbh.12.217.13139 All this, about the circumstances of his birth and those that led to his becoming the son of Kapila, was said unto me by the divine Rishi
Mbh.12.267.16299 In this connection is instanced the old narrative of the discourse between Kapila and the cow.
Mbh.12.267.16302 Beholding that cow tied for slaughter, Kapila of liberal soul, ever observant of the duties of Sattwa, always engaged in restraining his senses, possessed of true knowledge, and abstemious in diet, having acquired an excellent understanding that was characterised by faith, perfectly fearless, beneficial, firm, and ever directed towards truth, uttered this word once, viz, Alas ye Vedas,
Mbh.12.267.16303 At that time a Rishi, of the name of Syumarasmi, entering by Yoga power the form of that cow, addressed the Yati Kapila, saying, Hist O Kapila!
Mbh.12.267.16307 Kapila said, I do not censure the Vedas.
Mbh.12.268.16360 SECTION CCLXIX Kapila said, Beholding that all the fruits that are attainable by acts are terminable instead of being eternal, Yatis, by adopting self-restraint and tranquillity, attain to Brahma through the path of knowledge.
Mbh.12.268.16394 Kapila said, If acts are obligatory, then there are the Darsa, the Paurnamasa, the Agnihotra, the Chaturmasya, and other acts for the man of intelligence.
Mbh.12.268.16444 Kapila said, Betaking yourselves to the path of the good viz, Yoga, do you even in this life realise its fruits by the direct evidence of your senses.
Mbh.12.268.16466 Kapila said, Whatever the Sastras according to which one performs the acts one feels inclined to do, the ordinances laid down in it for regulating those acts never become fruitless.
Mbh.12.269.16509 SECTION CCLXX Kapila said, The Vedas are regarded as authoritative by all.
Mbh.12.269.16568 Kapila said, Those who lead a life of domesticity are certainly auspicious and acquire excellence of every kind.
Mbh.12.269.16576 Kapila said, Acts only cleanse the body.
Mbh.12.301.18859 Bhishma said, Listen now to what the subtile principles are of the followers of the Sankhya doctrine have been established by all the great and puissant Yatis having Kapila their first.
Mbh.12.301.18882 The Sankhyas or followers of Kapila, who are conversant with all paths and endued with wisdom, say that there are five faults, O puissant one, in the human body.
Mbh.12.301.18947 The high-souled followers of Kapila have set their high understandings on this point.
Mbh.12.318.19884 I have heard discourses on this subject from Jaigishavya, Aista, Devala, the regenerate sage Parasara, the intelligent Varshaganya, Bhrigu, Panchasikha Kapila, Suka, Gautama, Arshtisena, the high-souled Garga, Narada, Asuri, the intelligent Paulastya, Sanatkumara, the high-souled Sukra, and my sire Kasyapa.
Mbh.12.325.20646 as also the science promulgated by Kapila.
Mbh.12.336.21523 There were others also who became Sadasyas in that sacrifice, viz, Dhanusha, Raivya, Arvavasu, Parvavasu, the Rishi Medhatithi, the great Rishi Tandya, the blessed Rishi Santi, otherwise called Vedasiras, the foremost of Rishis, viz, Kapila, who was the father of Salihotra, the first Kalpa, Tittiri the elder brother of Vaisampayana, Kanwa, and Devahotra, in all forming sixteen.
Mbh.12.339.21907 Learned preceptors, with settled convictions deducted from the truths of the Sankhya philosophy, have spoken of me as Kapila endued with the puissance of Knowledge, dwelling within the effulgence of Surya, and concentrated in Yoga
Mbh.12.340.22124 The puissant Lord who is charged with the creation of all the worlds is called Aniruddha, Sana, Sanatsujata, Sanaka, Sanandana, Sanatkumara, Kapila, and Sanatana numbering the seventh, these seven Rishis are known as the spiritual sons of Brahman.
Mbh.12.342.22650 Those who are conversant with the science propounded by Kapila call the Supreme Soul by the name of Virincha.
Mbh.12.342.22653 The preceptors of Sankhya philosophy, possessed of definite conclusions regarding all topics, call me the eternal Kapila staying in the midst of the solar disc with but Knowledge for my companion
Mbh.12.349.23428 The promulgator of Sankhya cult is said to be the great Rishi Kapila.
Mbh.12.350.23455 Having occupied themselves with reflection on what is called Adhyatma, diverse Rishis, O king, having Kapila for their first, have declared their opinions on the topic both generally and particularly.
Mbh.13.4.331 The adorable Madhuchcchanda and the mighty Devrat, Akshina, Sakunta, Vabhru, Kalapatha, the celebrated Yajnavalkya, Sthula of high vows, Uluka, Mudgala, and the sage Saindhavayana, the illustrious Valgujangha and the great Rishi Galeva, Ruchi, the celebrated Vajra, as also Salankayana, Liladhya and Narada, the one known as Kurchamuka, and Vahuli, Mushala, as also Vakshogriva, Anghrika, Naikadrik, Silayupa, Sita, Suchi, Chakraka, Marrutantavya, Vataghna, Aswalayana, and Syamayana, Gargya, and Javali, as also Susruta, Karishi, Sangsrutya, and Para Paurava, and Tantu, the great sage Kapila, Tarakayana, Upagahana, Asurayani, Margama, Hiranyksha, Janghari, Bhavravayani, and Suti, Bibhuti, Suta, Surakrit, Arani, Nachika, Champeya, Ujjayana, Navatantu, Vakanakha, Sayanya, Yati, Ambhoruha, Amatsyasin, Srishin, Gardhavi Urjjayoni, Rudapekahin, and the great Rishi Naradin, these Munis were all sons of Viswamitra and were versed in the knowledge of Brahma.
Mbh.13.14.1397 Among the Vedas thou art the Samans, among the Yajushes thou art the Sata-Rudriyam, among Yogins thou art Sanatkumara, and among Sankhyas thou art Kapila.
Mbh.13.17.2285 Thou art Kapila.
Mbh.13.18.2782 After this, Kapila, the Rishi who promulgated the doctrines that go by the name of Sankhya, and who is honoured by the gods themselves, said, I adore Bhava with great devotion for many lives together.
Mbh.13.57.5695 One who gives away a Kapila cow with her calf, with a brazen pot of milking with horns adorned with gold, and possessed of diverse other accomplishments, obtains the fruition of all his wishes from that cow.
Mbh.13.71.6680 By making a gift of a cow of the Kapila species, one becomes cleansed of all one's sins.
Mbh.13.71.6681 Verily, by giving away even a single cow of the Kapila species that has been acquired by legitimate means, one becomes cleansed of all the sins one may have committed.
Mbh.13.73.6792 As Ganga is the foremost of all streams, even so is a Kapila cow the foremost of all animals of the bovine breed.
Mbh.13.77.7007 Verily, as Ganga is the foremost of all rivers, even so is a Kapila cow the foremost of all kine'
Mbh.13.77.7008 Yudhishthira said, Why, O grandsire, do the righteous applaud the gift of a Kapila cow as more meritorious when all good kine that are given away should be regarded as equal?
Mbh.13.77.7009 O thou of great puissance, I wish to hear what the distinction is that attaches to a Kapila cow.
Mbh.13.77.7011 Bhishma said, I have, O son, heard old men recite this history respecting the circumstances under which the Kapila cow was created.
Mbh.13.77.7058 Hence, O king, in the matter of giving away kine, the gift is regarded as primarily desirable of Kapila kine which are endued with great energy and possessed of colour unchanged from white.
Mbh.13.78.7090 Those men who make gift of Kapila king with their calves and with vessel of white brass for milking them, kine, that is, which are not vicious and which while given away, are wrapped round with cloths, succeed in conquering both this and the other world.
Mbh.13.79.7135 By giving away a Kapila cow with a calf resembling herself, yielding a copious measure of milk, free from every vicious habit, and covered with a piece of cloth, the giver attains to great honours in the region of Brahma.
Mbh.13.80.7184 By giving away a Kapila cow having large horns, accompanied by a calf and a vessel of white brass for milking her, and covered with a piece of cloth, one succeeds in entering, freed from fear, the palace of Yama that is so difficult to enter.
Mbh.13.130.11128 The merits acquired by a person who gives away a Kapila cow every day for a period of two and ten years, or by a person who adores the deities every month in a sacrifice, or by him who gives away hundreds of thousands of kine in the great Pushkara, do not come up to those that are his with whom a guest is gratified.
Mbh.13.130.11145 Water for drink, and lamps for lighting darkness, should always be given, as also sandals and umbrellas and Kapila kine with due rites.
Mbh.13.130.11146 In Pushkara especially should one make the gift of a Kapila cow unto a Brahmana conversant with the Vedas.
Mbh.13.130.11169 Listen now to what the merits are of the person who makes the gift of a Kapila cow to a Brahmana conversant with the Vedas, especially if the gift be made in Pushkara.
Mbh.13.130.11171 The gift of a single Kapila cow is capable of cleansing whatever sins the giver may be guilty of even if those sins be as grave.
Mbh.13.130.11172 Brahmanicide, for the gift of a single Kapila cow is regarded as equal in point of merit to that of a hundred kine.
Mbh.13.130.11173 Hence, one should give away a Kapila cow at that Pushkara which is regarded as the senior of the two Tirthas known by that name on the day of the full moon in the month of Karttika.
