Mbh.5.174.7810 Myself repairing on a single car to the city of the ruler of Kasi, I beheld, O thou of mighty arms, the three maidens adorned with ornaments and also all the kings of the earth invited thither on the occasion.
Mbh.5.175.7823 SECTION CLXXV Bhishma said, Then, O chief of the Bharatas, approaching my mother, that daughter of the Dasa clan, and saluting that parent of heroes, I said these words, Having vanquished all the kings, these daughters of the ruler of Kasi, having beauty alone for their dowry, have been abducted by me for the sake of Vichitravirya,
Mbh.5.175.7825 When next, with Satyavati's acquiescence, the nuptials approached, the eldest daughter of the ruler of Kasi said these words in great bashfulness, O Bhishma, thou art conversant with morality, and art well-versed in all our scriptures!
Mbh.5.176.7859 Although she spoke in this strain, Salwa, however, O chief of the Bharatas, rejected that daughter of the ruler of Kasi, like a snake casting off his slough.
Mbh.5.176.7861 Then the eldest daughter of the ruler of Kasi, filled with anger, and her eyes bathed in tears, said these words with a voice choked with tears and grief, Cast off, O king, by thee, whithersoever I may go, the righteous will be my protectors, for truth is indestructible'
Mbh.5.178.7919 Hearing these words, Amva said, I am incapable of going back to my father's abode in the city of Kasi, for without doubt I shalt then be disregarded by all my relatives.
Mbh.5.178.7927 Hearing the story of Amva and the king of Kasi, that royal sage of great energy became very anxious at heart.
Mbh.5.178.7967 said, The favourite daughter of the ruler of Kasi, she is, O lord, my daughter's child!
Mbh.5.178.7968 The eldest daughter of the king of Kasi, she is known by the name of Amva.
Mbh.5.178.7971 All the Kshatriya kings of the earth were assembled together at the city of Kasi.
Mbh.5.179.8017 And after their discourse was over, the sage Hotravahana opportunately said in a sweet voice these words of grave import unto that foremost one of Bhrigu's race, viz, Rama of mighty strength, O Rama, this is my daughter's daughter, O lord, being the daughter of the king of Kasi.
Mbh.5.180.8048 SECTION CLXXX Bhishma said, O lord, repeatedly urged by that maiden to slay Bhishma, Rama replied unto that weeping girl, saying, O daughter of Kasi, O thou of the fairest complexion, I do not, on any account, take up arms now except for the sake of those that are conversant with the Vedas.
Mbh.5.180.8057 Rama said, O daughter of Kasi, say but the word and Bhishma, however, deserving of reverence from thee, will, at my word, take up thy feet on his head'
Mbh.5.180.8069 That task which the daughter of Kasi hath in her mind is a grave one, O Brahmana!
Mbh.5.181.8085 Rama said, Thyself, divested of desire, with what mood of mind, O Bhishma, didst thou abduct, on the occasion of her self-choice, his daughter of the king of Kasi and again dismiss her subsequently?
Mbh.5.181.8103 Then Rama answered me with eyes red in anger, Thou knowest me, O Bhishma, to be thy preceptor, and yet, O Kauravya, thou acceptest not, for pleasing me, this daughter of the ruler of Kasi!
Mbh.5.181.8176 Thus addressed by her, I saluted the goddess reverentially and replied unto her with joined hands, giving her, O chief of the Bharatas, an account of all that had transpired in that self-choice of the daughter of Kasi.
Mbh.5.181.8178 I also gave her a history of all the past acts of the eldest daughter of Kasi.
Mbh.5.183.8261 And seeing me afflicted and pierced with Rama's weapons and borne away drooping and in a swoon, all the followers of Rama, including Akritavrana and others and the princess of Kasi, filled with joy, O Bharata, began to shout aloud!
Mbh.5.183.8271 Then all those ascetics together with the princess of Kasi, quietly proceeded, O son of Kuru's race, with great anxiety towards Rama.
Mbh.5.188.8466 Summoning then in my presence that maiden the daughter of Kasi, Bhargava sorrowfully said unto her these words in the midst of all those high-souled persons
Mbh.5.189.8491 They both told me, O Bhishma, do not give way to sorrow on account of the daughter of Kasi.
Mbh.5.189.8500 Bathing frequently in the sacred waters of that retreat, the princess of Kasi roamed about according to her will.
Mbh.5.189.8501 Proceeding next one after another to the asylum, O king, of Narada, and to the auspicious asylum of Uluka and to that of Chyavana, and to the spot sacred to Brahmana, and to Prayaga the sacrificial platform of the gods, and to that forest sacred to the gods, and to Bhogawati, and, O monarch, to the asylum of Kusika's son Viswamitra, and to the asylum of Mandavya, and also to the asylum of Dwilipa, and to Ramhrada, and, O Kaurava, to the asylum of Garga, the princess of Kasi, O king, performed ablutions in the sacred waters of all these, observing all the while the most difficult of vows.
Mbh.5.189.8511 if, O princess of Kasi, thou observest these vows for destruction of Bhishma, and if thou takest leave of thy body while observing them, thou shalt in thy next birth become a river, crooked in her course and of water only during the rains!
Mbh.5.189.8514 Addressing her thus, O king, my mother, that highly-blessed lady, in seeming smiles, dismissed the princess of Kasi.
Mbh.5.189.8516 And the daughter of the king of Kasi, wandering hither and thither for her passionate desire of tirthas, once more came back, O Kauravya, to Vatsabhumi.
Mbh.5.190.8519 SECTION CXC Bhishma said, Then all those ascetics that dwell in Vatsabhumi, beholding the princess of Kasi firmly resolved on ascetic austerities, dissuaded her and enquired of her, saying, What is thy business'
Mbh.5.190.8546 Upon this, that faultless maiden of the fairest complexion, the eldest daughter of the king of Kasi, procuring wood from that forest in the very sight of those great Rishis, made a large funeral pyre on the banks of the Yamuna, and having set fire to it herself, entered that blazing fire, O great king, with a heart burning with wrath, and uttering, O king, the words, I do so for Bhishma's destruction
Mbh.5.195.8762 And it was the eldest daughter of the ruler of Kasi, celebrated by the name of Amva, who was, O bull of Bharata's race, born in Drupada's line as Sikhandin.
Mbh.5.199.8866 And he was followed by Sauchitti, who steadily adhered to truth and was invincible in battle, and Srenimat, and Vasudeva and Vibhu, the son of the ruler of Kasi, with twenty thousand cars, and hundred million steeds of high mettle, each bearing scores of bells on its limbs, and twenty thousand smiting elephants with tusks as long as plough-shares, all of good breed and divided temples and all resembling moving masses of clouds.
Mbh.6.13.699 That mighty car-warrior who on a single car had vanquished in terrific combat at the city of Kasi all the kings of the Earth mustered together, he who had fearlessly fought in battle with Rama, the son of Jamadagni, he whom Jamadagni's son could not slay, oh, even hath he been to-day slain by Sikhandin.
Mbh.6.25.1073 They are Yuyudhana, and Virata, and that mighty car-warrior Drupada, and Dhrishtaketu, and Chekitana, and the ruler of Kasi endued with great energy; and Purujit, and Kuntibhoja, and Saivya that bull among men; and Yudhamanyu of great prowess, and Uttamaujas of great energy; and Subhadra's son, and the sons of Draupadi, all of whom are mighty car-warriors.
Mbh.6.25.1086 And that splendid bowman, the ruler of Kasi and that mighty car-warrior, Sikhandin, Dhrishtadyumna, Virata, and that unvanquished Satyaki, and Drupada, and the sons of Draupadi, and the mighty-armed son of Subhadra, all these, O lord of earth, severally blew their conches.
Mbh.6.50.2653 And the rear was protected by Virata aided by the Kekayas, and the ruler of Kasi and the king of the Chedis, with thirty thousand cars
Mbh.6.51.2668 And behind them were the rulers of many provinces, and Ketumat, and Vasudana, and the powerful son of the king of Kasi.
Mbh.6.51.2676 And the ruler of Kasi, and Saivya, and Sikhandin the mighty car-warrior, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Virata, and the mighty car-warrior Satyaki, and that great bowman the king of the Panchalas, and the five sons of Draupadi, all blew their large conches and set up leonine roars.
Mbh.6.71.3812 And the king of Avanti engaged with the ruler of Kasi, and the ruler of the Sindhus engaged with Bhimasena.
Mbh.6.94.4949 Him followed Satyadhriti and Sauchiti difficult of being vanquished in battle, and Srenimat, and Vasudana and the powerful son of the ruler of Kasi, and many car-warriors headed by Abhimanyu, as also those mighty car-warriors, viz, the sons of Draupadi, and the valiant Kshatradeva, and Kshatradharman, and Nila, the ruler of the low countries, at the head of his own forces.
Mbh.6.124.6889 O Karna, proceeding to the city of Kasi, alone with thy bow, thou hadst crushed the kings in battle for procuring a bride for the Kuru king!
Mbh.7.8.286 Then Bhimasena and Dhananjaya and the grandson of Sini, and the sons of Drupada, and the ruler of Kasi, viz, the son of Saivya, and Sivi himself, cheerfully and with loud roars covered him with their arrows.
Mbh.7.8.289 Then Drona, desirous of the prosperity of thy sons, having thus crushed the divisions of Satyaki, and Bhima, and Dhananjaya and Subhadra's son and Drupada, and the ruler of the Kasi, and having ground many other heroes in battle, indeed, that high-souled warrior, having achieved these and many other feats, and having, O chief of the Kurus, scorched the world like the Sun himself as he rises at the end of the Yuga, proceeded hence, O monarch, to heaven.
Mbh.7.10.387 That lord of battle, that foremost of bowmen, that hero of unbaffled aim and great strength, that tiger among men, viz, Yuyutsu, whom many wrathful kings battling together for six months at Varanavata from desire of slaying him could not vanquish, and who in battle at Varanasi overthrew with a broad-headed arrow that mighty car-warrior, viz, the prince of Kasi, desirous of seizing at a Swayamvara a maiden for wife, O, what hero of my army resisted him?
Mbh.7.83.3694 There where Vrikodara and Arjuna are, and the Vrishni hero, Satyaki, and Uttamaujas of the Panchalas, and the invincible Yudhamanyu, and the irrepressible Dhrishtadyumna, and the unvanquished Sikhandin, the Asmakas, the Kekayas, and Kshatradharman of the Somakas, the ruler of the Chedis, and Chekitana, and Vibhu, the son of the ruler of the Kasi, the sons of Draupadi, and Virata and the mighty car-warrior Drupada, and those tigers among men viz, the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the stayer of Madhu to offer counsel, who is there in this world that would fight these, expecting to live?
Mbh.9.2.87 Bhagadatta and Kripa and Shalya and the two princes of Avanti and Jayadratha and Bhurishrava and Sala and Somadatta and Bahlika and Ashvatthama and the chief of the Bhojas and the mighty prince of Magadha and Vrihadvala and the ruler of the Kasi and Shakuni the son of Subala and many thousands of Mlecchas and Sakas and Yavanas, and Sudakshina the ruler of the Kambojas and the king of the Trigartas and the grandsire Bhishma and Bharadwaja's son and Gotama's son Kripa and Srutayush and Ayutayush and Satayush of great energy, and Jalasandha and Rishyasringa's son and the Rakshasa Alayudha, and the mighty-armed Alambusa and the great car-warrior Subala, these and numerous other kings, O best of monarchs, have taken up arms for my sake, prepared to cast away their very lives in great battle, stationed on the field amidst these, and surrounded by my brothers, I will fight against all the Parthas and the Pancalas and the Cedis, O tiger among kings, and the sons of Draupadi and Satyaki and Kunti-Bhoja and the rakshasa Ghatotkaca.
Mbh.12.46.2261 I was thinking of him who having vanquished in a trice all the assembled kings at the Self-choice of the daughters of the king of Kasi abducted the three princesses for the marriage of his brother Vichitravirya.
Mbh.12.233.14480 Pratardana, the ruler of Kasi, having given away his very eyes to a Brahmana, obtained great fame both here and hereafter.

Mbh.13.30.3820 In Kasi also, O monarch, there was a king who was the grandfather of Divodasa.
Mbh.13.30.3822 The sons of king Haihaya, O chief of men who was otherwise known by the name of Vitahavya, invaded the kingdom of Kasi and advancing to the country that lies between the rivers Ganga and Yamuna, fought a battle with king Haryyaswa and also slew him in it.
Mbh.13.30.3824 Meanwhile Haryyaswa's son Sudeva, who looked like a deity in splendour and who was a second god of righteousness, was installed on the throne of Kasi as its ruler.
Mbh.13.30.3825 The delighter of Kasi, that righteous-souled prince ruled his kingdom for sometime, when the hundred sons of Vitahavya once more invaded his dominions and defeated him in battle.
Mbh.13.30.3827 After that Divodasa, the son of Sudeva, became installed on the throne of Kasi as its ruler.
Mbh.13.30.3882 They had laid waste the territories and the wealth of the kingdom of Kasi.
Mbh.13.32.3965 I shall for thy sake, give up today the very kingdom of the Kasi and, if need be, my lice too.
Mbh.13.32.4020 The royal sage Sivi of pure soul and endued with great wisdom and unbaffled prowess, that ruler of the kingdom of Kasi, became celebrated over the three worlds for his deeds of righteousness.
Mbh.13.85.7851 The names of the eight sons of Kavi are Kavi, Kavya, Dhrishnu, Usanas endued with great intelligence, Bhrigu, Viraja, Kasi, and Ugra conversant with every duty.
Mbh.13.137.11341 And Pratardana, the king of Kasi, by giving his son to a Brahmana, secured to himself unique and undying fame in this as well as in the other world.
Mbh.13.165.13693 Sarayu, Gandaki, the great river Lohita, Tamra, Aruna, Vetravati, Parnasa, Gautami, the Godavari, Vena, Krishnavena, Dwija, Drishadvati, Kaveri, Vankhu, Mandakini Prayaga, Prabhasa, the sacred Naimisha, the spot sacred to Visweswara or Mahadeva, viz, Kasi, that lake of crystal water, Kurukshetra full of many sacred waters, the foremost of oceans viz, the ocean of milk, Penances, Gifts, Jamvumarga, Hiranwati, Vitasta, the river Plakshavati, Vedasmriti, Vedavati, Malava, Aswavati, all sacred spots on Earth, Gangadwara, the sacred Rishikulya, the river Chitravaha, the Charmanwati, the sacred river Kausiki, the Yamuna, the river Bhimarathi, the great river Vahuda, Mahendravani, Tridiva Nilika, Saraswati, Nanda, the other Nanda, the large sacred lake, Gaya, Phalgutirtha Dharmarayana the sacred forest that is peopled with the deities, the sacred celestial river, the lake created by the Grandsire Brahma which is sacred and celebrated over the three worlds, and auspicious and capable of cleansing all sins, the Himavat mountain endued with excellent herbs, the Vindhya mountain variegated with diverse kinds of metals, containing many Tirthas and overgrown with medicinal herbs.
Mbh.13.168.13858 At the Self choice at Kasi, he vanquished on a single car the assembled Kshatriyas and ravished the three princesses for his step-brother Vichitravirya!
Mbh.16.6.222 How is it that that lord of the universe, the slayer of Madhu, who had put forth his prowess for achieving the destruction of Kesin and Kansa, and Chaidya swelling with pride, and Ekalavya, the son of the ruler of the Nishadas, and the Kalingas and the Magadhas, and the Gandharas and the king of Kasi, and many rulers assembled together in the midst of the desert, many heroes belonging to the East and the South, and many kings of the mountainous regionsalas, how could he remain indifferent to such a calamity as the curse denounced by the Rishis?
