MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.3.951 Wicked in his deeds, he even caused Kasyapa the prince of physicians to run back when he was coming for the relief of thy father.
Mbh.1.16.1299 Named Kadru and Vinata, they became the wives of Kasyapa.
Mbh.1.16.1300 Kasyapa derived great pleasure from his two wedded wives and being gratified he, resembling Prajapati himself, offered to give each of them a boon.
Mbh.1.16.1305 And unto Vinata also, Kasyapa said, Be it so'
Mbh.1.16.1309 Bear the embryos carefully' said Kasyapa, and then he went into the forest, leaving his two wives pleased with his blessings'
Mbh.1.20.1453 And Brahman, calling Kasyapa to him, spake unto him these words, O thou pure one who overcomest all enemies, these snakes begotten by you, who are of virulent poison and huge bodies, and ever intent on biting other creatures, have been cursed by their mother.
Mbh.1.20.1455 The destruction of the snakes in the sacrifice hath, indeed, been ordained long ago' Saying this, the divine Creator of the Universe comforted Kasyapa and imparted to that illustrious one the knowledge of neutralising poison
Mbh.1.23.1501 He is the mighty son of Kasyapa, the destroyer of the Nagas, engaged in the well-being of the gods, and the foe of the Daityas and the Rakshasas.
Mbh.1.23.1518 O thou best of birds, thou Lord of all, thou art the son of the merciful and high-souled Rishi Kasyapa; therefore, be not wroth but have mercy on the universe.
Mbh.1.24.1549 The intelligent son of Kasyapa is known to all by the name of Aruna.
Mbh.1.29.1678 And the great Rishi Kasyapa then asked him, O child, is it well with thee?
Mbh.1.29.1690 Kasyapa replied, This lake thou seest is sacred.
Mbh.1.29.1720 Sauti continued, Having said so unto Garuda, he Kasyapa blessed him, saying, Blest be thou when thou art in combat with the gods.
Mbh.1.30.1746 There he saw his father Kasyapa engaged in ascetic devotions.
Mbh.1.30.1747 Kasyapa also saw his son, that ranger of the skies, of divine form, possessed of great splendour, and energy and strength, and endued with the speed of the wind or the mind, huge as a mountain peak, a ready smiter like the curse of a Brahmana, inconceivable, indescribable, frightful to all creatures, possessed of great prowess, terrible, of the splendour of Agni himself, and incapable of being overcome by the deities, Danavas, and invincible Rakshasas, capable of splitting mountain summits and sucking the ocean itself and destroying the three worlds, fierce, and looking like Yama himself.
Mbh.1.30.1748 The illustrious Kasyapa, seeing him approach and knowing also his motive, spoke unto him these words: Kasyapa said, O child, do not commit a rash act, for then thou wouldst have to suffer pain.
Mbh.1.30.1750 Sauti continued, Kasyapa then propitiated, for the sake of his son, the Valakhilyas of exceeding good fortune and whose sins had been destroyed by ascetic penances'
Mbh.1.30.1751 And Kasyapa said, Ye whose wealth is asceticism, the essay of Garuda is for the good of all creatures.
Mbh.1.30.1754 Sauti continued, Those ascetics thus addressed by the illustrious Kasyapa, abandoned that bough and went to the sacred mountain of Himavat for purposes of ascetic penances.
Mbh.1.30.1755 After those Rishis had gone away, the son of Vinata, with voice obstructed by the bough in his beaks, asked his father Kasyapa saying, O illustrious one, where shall I throw this arm of the tree?
Mbh.1.30.1757 Then Kasyapa spoke of a mountain without human beings with caves and dales always covered with snow and incapable of approach by ordinary creatures even in thought.
Mbh.1.30.1782 Vrihaspati answered, O chief of the gods, O thou of a thousand sacrifices, it is from thy fault and carelessness, and owing also to the ascetic penance of the high-souled great Rishis, the Valakhilyas, that the son of Kasyapa and Vinata, a ranger of the skies endued with great strength and possessing the capacity of assuming at will any form, is approaching to take away the Soma.
Mbh.1.31.1800 Why also Kasyapa, a Brahman, had the king of birds for a son?
Mbh.1.31.1806 Once upon a time, when the lord of creation, Kasyapa, was engaged in a sacrifice from desire of offspring, the Rishis, the gods, and the Gandharvas, all gave him help.
Mbh.1.31.1807 And Indra was appointed by Kasyapa to bring the sacrificial fuel; and with him those ascetics the Valakhilyas, and all the other deities.
Mbh.1.31.1817 And the lord of the celestials of a hundred sacrifices, having come to know of this, became very much alarmed and sought the protection of the vow-observing Kasyapa.
Mbh.1.31.1818 And the Prajapati Kasyapa, hearing everything from Indra, went to the Valakhilyas and asked them if their sacrifice had been successful.
Mbh.1.31.1820 And the Prajapati Kasyapa pacifying them, spake unto them as follows, By the word of Brahman, this one Indra hath been made the Lord of the three worlds.
Mbh.1.31.1826 And the Valakhilyas, thus addressed by Kasyapa, after offering reverence to that first of the Munis, viz, the Prajapati Kasyapa, spake unto him: The Valakhilyas said, O Prajapati, this sacrifice of us all is for an Indra!
Mbh.1.31.1831 And Kasyapa spake unto her, Respected one, the sacrifice commenced by me hath borne fruit.
Mbh.1.31.1835 And the illustrious Kasyapa spake unto her again, Bear thou these auspicious seeds with great care.
Mbh.1.36.1992 And he, too, is much stronger owing to the bestowal of that boon by our father, the high-souled Kasyapa.
Mbh.1.37.2058 I think the grace of the illustrious Kasyapa our father can alone do us good.
Mbh.1.42.2234 And when the seventh day had arrived, that best of Brahmanas, the learned Kasyapa was coming towards the king's residence, desirous of treating the king after the snake-bite.
Mbh.1.42.2238 But that prince of snakes, Takshaka, in the form of an old Brahmana, saw Kasyapa approaching on his way, his heart set upon curing the king.
Mbh.1.42.2239 And the prince of snakes then spake unto that bull among Munis, Kasyapa, saying, Whither dost thou go with such speed?
Mbh.1.42.2241 And Kasyapa, thus addressed, replied, Takshaka, by his poison, will today burn king Parikshit of the Kuru race, that oppressor of all enemies.
Mbh.1.42.2245 And Kasyapa rejoined, I am sure that, possessed that I am of the power of learning, going thither I shall cure that monarch bit by thee
Mbh.1.43.2246 SECTION XLIII Astika Parva continued Sauti said, And Takshaka, after this, answered, If, indeed, thou art able to cure any creature bitten by me, then, O Kasyapa, revive thou this tree bit by me.
Mbh.1.43.2249 And Kasyapa said, If thou art so minded, bite thou then, O king of snakes, this tree.
Mbh.1.43.2251 Sauti continued, That king of snakes, thus addressed by the illustrious Kasyapa, bit then that banian tree.
Mbh.1.43.2253 And having burnt the banian so, the snake then spake again unto Kasyapa, saying, O first of Brahmanas, try thy best and revive this lord of the forest'
Mbh.1.43.2255 But taking up those ashes, Kasyapa spoke these words.
Mbh.1.43.2258 And then that best of Brahmanas, the illustrious and learned Kasyapa, revived, by his vidya, that tree which had been reduced to a heap of ashes.
Mbh.1.43.2260 And Takshaka, seeing the tree revived by the illustrious Kasyapa, said unto him, It is not wonderful in thee that thou shouldst destroy my poison or that of any one else like myself.
Mbh.1.43.2265 Kasyapa said, I go there for wealth, give it unto me, O snake, so that taking thy gold.
Mbh.1.43.2269 Sauti continued, That best of Brahmanas, Kasyapa, of great prowess and intelligence, hearing those words of Takshaka, sat in yoga meditation over the king.
Mbh.1.43.2270 And that foremost of Munis, viz, Kasyapa, of great prowess and gifted with spiritual knowledge, ascertaining that the period of life of that king of the Pandava race had really run out, returned, receiving from Takshaka as much wealth as he desired.
Mbh.1.50.2567 And when the seventh day had arrived, a Brahmana Rishi, named Kasyapa, desired to come to the monarch.
Mbh.1.50.2568 But the snake Takshaka saw Kasyapa.
Mbh.1.50.2569 And the prince of snakes spake unto Kasyapa without loss of time, saying, Where dost thou go so quickly, and what is the business on which thou goest'
Mbh.1.50.2570 Kasyapa replied, saying, O Brahmana, I am going whither king Parikshit, that best of the Kurus, is.
Mbh.1.50.2579 But Kasyapa, O king, revived it.
Mbh.1.50.2581 And Kasyapa, too, thus addressed, spake again unto Takshaka, saying, I go there from desire of wealth'
Mbh.1.50.2582 And Takshaka, thus addressed, then spake unto the high-souled Kasyapa in these soft words, O sinless one, take from me more wealth than what thou expectest from that monarch, and go back'
Mbh.1.50.2583 And Kasyapa, that foremost of men, thus addressed by the snake, and receiving from him as much wealth as he desired, wended his way back.
Mbh.1.50.2584 And Kasyapa going back, Takshaka, approaching in disguise, blasted, with the fire of his poison, thy virtuous father, the first of kings, then staying in his mansion with all precautions.
Mbh.1.50.2589 And he said, When did ye learn all that happened upon that, banian reduced to ashes by Takshaka, and which, wonderful as it is, was afterwards revived by Kasyapa?
Mbh.1.50.2590 Assuredly, my father could not have died, for the poison could have been neutralised by Kasyapa with his mantras.
Mbh.1.50.2591 That worst of snakes, of sinful soul, thought within his mind that if Kasyapa resuscitated the king bit by him, he, Takshaka, would be an object of ridicule in the world owing to the neutralisation of his poison.
Mbh.1.50.2594 I like to know, however, what ye saw or heard, what happened in the deep solitude of the forest, viz, the words of Takshaka and the speeches of Kasyapa.
Mbh.1.50.2613 From malignity alone he made Kasyapa return.
Mbh.1.50.2615 What would he have lost if the king had revived by the grace of Kasyapa and the precautionary measures of his ministers?
Mbh.1.50.2616 From ignorance of the effects of my wrath, he prevented Kasyapa, that excellent of Brahmanas, whom he could not defeat, from coming to my father with the desire of reviving him.
Mbh.1.65.3260 And Marichi's son is Kasyapa, and from Kasyapa have sprung these creatures.
Mbh.1.65.3301 And it is also known that this Pradha of great fortune, through the celestial Rishi Kasyapa, her husband, brought forth the sacred of the Apsaras, Alamvusha, Misrakesi, Vidyutparna, Tilottama, Aruna, Rakshita, Rambha, Manorama, Kesini, Suvahu, Surata, Suraja, and Supria were the daughters, and Ativahu and the celebrated Haha and Huhu, and Tumvuru were the sons, the best of Gandharvas, of Pradha and Amrita.
Mbh.1.66.3324 And Daksha bestowed, according to the sacred ordinance, ten of his daughters on Dharma, twenty-seven on Chandra the Moon, and thirteen on Kasyapa.
Mbh.1.66.3359 And the son of Marichi is Kasyapa.
Mbh.1.66.3361 And, therefore, is Kasyapa, the Father of the worlds.
Mbh.1.70.3691 And it was on the banks of that stream that the excellent asylum of the illustrious Kasyapa stood, offering a home to numerous Rishis of great ascetic merit.
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.1.70.3716 And the more the king saw that auspicious and sacred asylum of Kasyapa protected by that Rishi's ascetic virtues and possessing all the requisites of a holy retreat, the more he desired to see it.
Mbh.1.70.3718 And the slayer of heroes at last, accompanied by his minister and his priest, entered that charming and sacred retreat of Kasyapa inhabited all around by Rishis of ascetic wealth and exalted vows
Mbh.1.73.3856 And as he retraced his way homewards, he began to think of Kasyapa.
Mbh.1.75.4122 And he bestowed ten of his daughters on Dharma, and thirteen on Kasyapa.
Mbh.1.75.4124 And Kasyapa, the son of Marichi, begat on the eldest of his thirteen wives, the Adityas, the celestials endued with great energy and having Indra as their head and also Vivaswat the Sun.
Mbh.1.99.5506 Daksha had a daughter known by the name of Surabhi, who, O bull of Bharata's race, for benefiting the world, brought forth, by her connection with Kasyapa, a daughter Nandini in the form of a cow.
Mbh.1.123.6648 The sons of Kadru Nagas, the son of Vinata, the Gandharvas, the lords of the creation, and the seven great Rishis, viz, Bharadwaja, Kasyapa, Gautama, Viswamitra, Jamadagni, Vasishtha, and the illustrious Atri who illumined the world of old when the Sun was lost, all came there.
Mbh.1.131.7040 This earth also, to the verge of the sea, decked with towns and cities, as with a garland of flowers, I have given unto Kasyapa.
Mbh.1.169.8631 They were both devoted to the study of the ancient institutes and sprung from the race of Kasyapa.
Mbh.2.11.435 And Daksha, Prachetas, Pulaha, Marichi, the master Kasyapa, Bhrigu, Atri, and Vasistha and Gautama, and also Angiras, and Pulastya, Kraut, Prahlada, and Kardama, these Prajapatis, and Angirasa of the Atharvan Veda, the Valikhilyas, the Marichipas; Intelligence, Space, Knowledge, Air, Heat, Water, Earth, Sound, Touch, Form, Taste, Scent; Nature, and the Modes of Nature, and the elemental and prime causes of the world, all stay in that mansion beside the lord Brahma.
Mbh.2.66.2899 Thus addressed by Sudhanwan, the Daitya, trembling like a leaf of the fig tree, went to Kasyapa of great energy, for taking counsel with him.
Mbh.2.66.2903 Kasyapa thus asked answered,
Mbh.2.66.2918 Hearing these words of Kasyapa, Prahlada told his son, Sudhanwan is superior to thee, as indeed, his father Angiras is superior to me.
Mbh.3.12.650 Kasyapa hath said that thou art Sacrifice sprung from Truth!
Mbh.3.26.1218 The descendants of Bhrigu and Angiras, along with those of Vasishta and Kasyapa, the illustrious sons of Agastya, the offspring of Atri all of excellent vows, in fact, all the foremost Brahmanas of the whole, are now united with thee!
Mbh.3.26.1238 And Dwaipayana and Narada and Jamadagnya and Prithusravas; and Indradyumna and Bhalaki and Kritachetas and Sahasrapat; and Karnasravas and Munja and Lavanaswa and Kasyapa; and Harita and Sthulakarana and Agnivesya and Saunaka; and Kritavak and Suvakana Vrihadaswa and Vibhavasu; and Urdharetas and Vrishamitra and Suhotra and Hotravahana; these and many other Brahmanas of rigid vows then adored Yudhishthira like Rishis adoring Purandara in heaven
Mbh.3.85.4733 Those foremost of Rishis, Valmiki, and Kasyapa, and Atreya, and Kundajathara, and Viswamitra, and Gautama, and Asita, and Devala, and Markandeya, and Galava, and Bharadwaja, and Vasishtha, and the Muni Uddalaka, and Saunaka with his son, and Vyasa, that best of ascetics, and Durvasas, that foremost of Munis, and Javali of great austerities, all these illustrious Rishis endued with wealth of asceticism, are staying in expectation of thee.
Mbh.3.110.5678 And this is a hermitage, with a holy name, belonging to Kasyapa of mighty soul; whose son was Rishyasringa, devoted to penances, and of passions under control.
Mbh.3.110.5680 That powerful and mighty son of Kasyapa was born of a hind.
Mbh.3.110.5683 Yudhishthira said, How was the son of Kasyapa, Rishyasringa, born of a hind?
Mbh.3.110.5692 And that son of Kasyapa, Vibhandaka, having proceeded to a big lake, devoted himself to the practice of penances.
Mbh.3.111.5759 The courtesan said, O son of Kasyapa!
Mbh.3.113.5836 In the meanwhile, when the son of Kasyapa had gone out to gather fruits, then that very courtesan came again to tempt Rishyasringa in the manner described above.
Mbh.3.113.5839 those same courtesans by contrivances made the only son of Kasyapa enter their bark, and unmoored the vessel.
Mbh.3.114.5892 On the mighty occasion of that sacrifice, the Self-existent One made a gift of this entire earth with all its hilly and forest tracts, to Kasyapa, by way of gratuity, for ministering as a priest.
Mbh.3.114.5895 Then when the blessed saint Kasyapa beheld the goddess Earth, despondent and sad, he, O protector of men, performed a propitiatory act calculated to appease her wrath.
Mbh.3.117.6038 And, O protector of human beings, he raised an altar made of gold, ten Vyamas in breadth and nine in height, and made a gift of the same to the magnanimous Kasyapa.
Mbh.3.117.6040 And the exterminator of the military race possessed of immense strength, bestowed the earth upon the high-souled Kasyapa, and then became engaged in penance of an exceedingly severe form.
Mbh.3.130.6631 Here, O scion of Bharata's race, is the spot, where a conference took place between Agni and the sage Kasyapa, and also between Nahusha's son and the sages of the north.
Mbh.3.183.9132 And they soon after reached the hermitage of Arishtanemi, son of Kasyapa.
Mbh.3.184.9181 Then the very pious Kasyapa learned in all religious lore, approaching the disputants asked them what was the matter.
Mbh.3.188.9450 I am Siva, I am Soma, and I am Kasyapa the lord of the created things.
Mbh.3.219.11124 And when the invocation was made with the vyahriti hymns and with the aid of the five sacred fires, Kasyapa, Vasistha, Prana, the son of Prana, Chyavana, the son of Angiras, and Suvarchaka, there arose a very bright energy force full of the animating creative principle, and of five different colours.
Mbh.3.219.11134 Vrihadratha was the son of Kasyapa.
Mbh.3.270.13191 And the adorable lotus-eyed Lord of great effulgence, having thus slain the Daitya king for the well-being of all creatures, again took his birth in the womb of Aditi as son of Kasyapa.
Mbh.5.103.4777 These and many others there are amongst the sons of Kasyapa.
Mbh.5.105.4853 Like thee, I also have a daughter of Daksha for my mother and Kasyapa for my father.
Mbh.5.108.4982 There the sons of Kasyapa first multiplied.
Mbh.5.110.5043 For ruling over all aquatic creatures and for the protection of the water themselves, illustrious and divine Kasyapa installed Varuna here as the king of this region.
Mbh.5.110.5063 In this region is also situate the abode of the great Rishi Kasyapa, the son of Maricha.
Mbh.5.117.5285 And the royal sage then sported with her, as Surya with Prabhavati, Agni with Swaha, Vasava with Sachi, Chandra with Rohini, Yama with Urmila, Varuna with Gauri, Kuvera with Riddhi, Narayana with Lakshmi, Sagara with Jahnavi, Rudra with Rudrani, the Grandsire with Saraswati, Vasishtha's son Saktri with Adrisyanti, Vasishtha with Arundhati called also Akshamala, Chyavana with Sukanya, Pulastya with Sandhya, Agastya with the princess of Vidarbha Lopamudra, Satyavan with Savitri, Bhrigu with Puloma, Kasyapa with Aditi, Richika's son Jamadagni with Renuka, Kusika's son Viswamitra with Himavati, Vrihaspati with Tara, Sukra with Sataprava, Bhumipati with Bhumi, Pururavas with Urvasi, Richika with Satyavati, Manu with Saraswati, Dushyanta with Sakuntala, the eternal Dharma with Dhriti, Nala with Damayanti, Narada, with Satyavati, Jaratkaru with Jaratkaru, Pulastya with Pratichya, Urnayus with Menaka, Tumvuru with Rambha, Vasuki with Satasirsha, Dhananjaya with Kamari, Rama with the princess of Videha Sita, or Janardana with Rukmini.
Mbh.6.6.341 The high-souled seven Rishis, and Kasyapa the lord of creatures, repair thither, blessed be thou, on every parva day
Mbh.7.68.2928 The sacrificial altar, eighteen nalas high made entirely of gold, and constructed according to the ordinance, full of diverse kinds of jewels and gems, and decked with hundreds of standards, and this earth abounding in domestic and wild animals, were accepted by Kasyapa as sacrificial present made unto him by Rama, the son of Jamadagni.
Mbh.7.68.2930 Indeed, freeing the earth from all robbers, and making her teem with honest and graceful inhabitants, Rama gave her away to Kasyapa at his great Horse-sacrifice.
Mbh.7.68.2932 And it was Marichi Kasyapa who accepted from him the earth with her seven islands.
Mbh.7.68.2933 Then Kasyapa said unto Rama, Go out of the earth, at my command'
Mbh.7.68.2934 At the word of Kasyapa, the foremost of warriors, desirous of obeying the Brahmana's behest, caused by his arrows the very ocean to stand aside, and repairing to that best of mountains called Mahendra, continued to live there.
Mbh.7.91.4171 Let Asita, and Devala and Viswamitra, and Angiras, and Vasishtha, and Kasyapa, O king, do what is beneficial to thee.
Mbh.7.188.10373 Beholding Drona stationed on the field for the extermination of the Kshatriya race, the Rishis Viswamitra, and Jamadagni, and Bharadwaja, and Gautama, and Vasishtha, and Kasyapa, and Atri, and the Srikatas, the Prisnis, Garga, the Valkhilyas, the Marichis, the descendants of Bhrigu and Angiras, and diverse other sages of subtle forms quickly came thither, with the Bearer of sacrificial libations at their head, and, desirous of taking Drona unto the region of Brahman, addressed Drona, that ornament of battle, and said, Thou art fighting unrighteously.
Mbh.9.43.3095 The diverse gods, Indra and Vishnu, both of great energy, and Surya and Candramas, and Dhatri, and Vidhatri, and Vayu, and Agni, and Pushan, and Bhaga, and Aryaman, and Ansa, and Vivaswat, and Rudra of great intelligence, and Mitra, and the eleven Rudras, the eight Vasus, the twelve Adityas, the twin Ashvinis, the Viswedevas, the Maruts, the Saddhyas, the Pitris, the Gandharvas, the Apsaras, the Yakshas, the Rakshasas, the Pannagas, innumerable celestial Rishis, the Vaikhanasas, the Valakhilyas, those others among Rishis that subsist only on air and those that subsist on the rays of the Sun, the descendants of Bhrigu and Angiras, many high-souled Yatis, all the Vidyadharas, all those that were crowned with ascetic success, the Grandsire, Pulastya, Pulaha of great ascetic merits, Angiras, Kasyapa, Atri, Marichi, Bhrigu, Kratu, Hara, Prachetas, Manu, Daksha, the Seasons, the Planets, and all the luminaries; O monarch, all the rivers in their embodied forms, the eternal Vedas, the Seas, the diverse tirthas, the Earth, the Sky, the Cardinal and Subsidiary points of the compass, and all the Trees, O king, Aditi the mother of the gods, Hri, Sri, Swaha, Sarasvati, Uma, Sachi, Sinivali, Anumati, Kuhu, the Day of the new moon, the Day of the full Moon, the wives of the denizens of heaven, Himavat, Vindhya, Meru of many summits, Airavat with all his followers, the Divisions of time called Kala, Kashtha, Fortnight, the Seasons, Night, and Day, O king, the prince of steeds, Ucchaisravas, Vasuki the king of the Snakes, Aruna, Garuda, the Trees, the deciduous herbs, and the adorable god Dharma, all came there together.
Mbh.9.43.3101 The Grandsire of the worlds, Brahman, and Kasyapa of great energy, and the others mentioned and not mentioned, all poured water upon Skanda even as, O monarch, the gods had poured water on the head of Varuna, the lord of waters, for investing him with dominion.
Mbh.9.47.3500 After achieving such feats Rama performed in that tirtha a Vajapeya sacrifice and a hundred horse sacrifices through the assistance of his preceptor Kasyapa, that best of Munis.
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.12.49.2638 Having made the earth destitute of Kshatriyas for thrice seven times, the puissant Bhargava, at the completion of a horse-sacrifice, gave away the earth as sacrificial present unto Kasyapa.
Mbh.12.49.2639 For preserving the remnant of the Kshatriyas, Kasyapa, O king, pointing with his hand that still held the sacrificial ladle, said these words, O great sage, repair to the shores of the southern ocean.
Mbh.12.49.2642 Kasyapa also, O monarch, having accepted the earth in gift, and made a present of it unto the Brahmanas, entered the great forest.
Mbh.12.49.2646 Beholding the earth sinking from fear, the high-souled Kasyapa held her on his lap; and since the great Rishi held her on his lap uru therefore is the earth known by the name of Urvi.
Mbh.12.49.2647 The goddess earth, for protection's sake, gratified Kasyapa and begged of him a king.
Mbh.12.49.2670 Vasudeva continued, The sage Kasyapa then, seeking out those Kshatriyas of great energy whom the goddess had indicated, installed them duly as kings for protecting her.
Mbh.12.72.4078 In this connection is cited the old story about the discourse between Aila's son and Kasyapa.
Mbh.12.72.4081 Kasyapa said, Ruin overtakes the kingdom of the Kshatriya when the Brahmana and Kshatriya contend with each other.
Mbh.12.72.4105 Tell me all this, O Kasyapa!
Mbh.12.72.4107 Kasyapa said, Rudra exists in the hearts of men.
Mbh.12.72.4112 Kasyapa said, Fire, blazing forth in one house, burneth a whole quarter or an entire village.
Mbh.12.72.4116 Kasyapa said, By avoiding all connection with the sinful, one becomes pure and stainless.
Mbh.12.72.4124 Kasyapa said, Such, indeed, is the course of this world, O prince!
Mbh.12.165.9828 That religion was accepted by the gods, with their preceptors, priests, the Adityas, the Vasus, the Rudras, the Sadhyas, the Maruts, the Aswins, Bhrigu, Atri, Angiras, the Siddhas, Kasyapa rich in penances, Vasishtha, Gautama, Agastya, Narada, Parvata, the Valikhilya Rishis, those other Rishis known under the names of Prabhasas, the Sikatas, the Ghritapas, the Somavayavyas, the Vaiswanaras, Marichipas, the Akrishtas, the Hansas, those born of Fire, the Vanaprasthas, and the Prasnis.
Mbh.12.168.10132 He was a prince of Cranes, possessed of great wisdom, and a son of the sage Kasyapa.
Mbh.12.169.10147 Rajadharman said, O Brahmana, I am the son of Kasyapa by one of the daughters of the sage Daksha.
Mbh.12.169.10152 Indeed, the son of Kasyapa offered, for the acceptance of his guest Gautama a blazing fire and certain large fishes.
Mbh.12.169.10158 When Gautama had laid himself down, the eloquent son of Kasyapa, who resembled Yama himself in his knowledge of duties, asked him a bout the cause of his arrival there.
Mbh.12.169.10161 The son of Kasyapa cheerfully told him: It behoveth thee not to feel any anxiety.
Mbh.12.170.10206 He has been sent to me by that son of Kasyapa.
Mbh.12.179.10781 In this connection is cited the old story of the discourse between Indra and Kasyapa.
Mbh.12.179.10783 Once on a time a prosperous Vaisya, in the enjoyment of prosperity, and proud of his affluence, threw down, by negligently driving his car, a Rishi's son of rigid vows named Kasyapa, devoted to penances.
Mbh.12.179.10788 Thou, O Kasyapa, art a human being!
Mbh.12.179.10808 With this measure of gain that thou hast won, thou shouldst, O Kasyapa, be contented!
Mbh.12.179.10838 Thou hast no idea also, O Kasyapa, of every other superior kind of drink and food that exists among men, for thou hast never tasted it.
Mbh.12.179.10870 Thus addressed, the ascetic Kasyapa, rising up, said, O, thou art certainly possessed of knowledge and great intelligence!
Mbh.12.179.10873 Kasyapa then worshipped that god having the best of steeds for the animal that bore him.
Mbh.12.206.12485 The eldest born, viz, Marichi, begat, by a fiat of his will, a son named Kasyapa, full of energy and the foremost of all persons conversant with Brahma.
Mbh.12.206.12489 Marichi's son Kasyapa, O sire, who was conversant with all duties and their distinctions, who was of righteous deeds and great fame, became the husband of those thirteen daughters.
Mbh.12.206.12495 The other wives of Kasyapa gave birth to Gandharvas, horses, birds, kine, Kimpurushas, fishes, and trees and plants.
Mbh.12.207.12555 This last has two names in the world, viz, Daksha and Kasyapa.
Mbh.12.207.12556 Marichi had one son called Kasyapa.
Mbh.12.207.12558 Some call him Arishtanemi, and some Kasyapa.
Mbh.12.207.12569 Bhaga, Ansa, Aryyaman, Mitra, Varna, Savitri, Dhatri, Vivaswat of great might, Tvashtri, Pushan, Indra, and Vishnu known as the twelfth, these are the twelve Adityas, all sprung from Kasyapa.
Mbh.12.207.12592 Atreya, and Vasishtha, and the great Rishi Kasyapa, and Gautama, Bharadwaja, and Viswamitra, the son of Kusika, and the illustrious son of the high-souled Richika, viz, Jamadagni, these seven live in the north.
Mbh.12.208.12605 The following that I shall recite was narrated there by the great Rishi Kasyapa.
Mbh.12.296.18481 My grandfather Vasishtha, Rishyasringa, Kasyapa, Veda, Tandya, Kripa, Kakshivat, Kamatha, and others, and Yavakrita, O king, and Drona, that foremost of speakers, and Ayu, and Matanga, and Datta, and Drupada, and Matsya, all these, O ruler of the Videhas, obtained their respective positions through penance as the means.
Mbh.12.296.18482 Originally only four Gotras races arose, O monarch, viz, Angiras, Kasyapa, Vasishtha, and Bhrigu.
Mbh.12.318.19877 O Kasyapa, if one continuously on the nature of the Jiva-soul and its connection with the Supreme Soul, one then succeeds in divesting oneself on all attributes and in beholding the Supreme Soul.
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.12.339.21931 When after routing the Lord of Sachi, that Asura will take unto himself the sovereignty of the three worlds, I shall take birth in Aditi's womb, by Kasyapa, as the twelfth Aditya.
Mbh.12.342.22549 Amongst them, three and ten were bestowed by him upon Kasyapa; ten upon Dharma; ten upon Mann; and seven and twenty upon Shoma.
Mbh.12.342.22640 It is for this reason that that lord of all creatures, viz, Kasyapa, the common sire of the deities and the Asuras, called me by the name Vrishakapi.
Mbh.13.12.783 The sons of the sage Kasyapa, viz, the deities and the Asuras, quarrelled with each other on account of the sovereignty of the three worlds.
Mbh.13.14.904 Let Brahma and Siva and Kasyapa, the Rivers, those deities that preside over the mind, the soil, all deciduous herbs, those Chhandas Rhymes that are regarded as bearers of the libations poured in sacrifices, the Rishis, Earth, the Oceans, the sacrificial presents, those syllables that are uttered for completing the cadences of Samans, the Rikshas, the Pitris, the Planets, the spouses of the deities, the celestial maidens, the celestial mothers, the great cycles, kine, Chandramas, Savitri, Agni, Savitri, the knowledge of the Vedas, the seasons, the year, small and big divisions of time, eg,

Mbh.13.17.2059 Thou art the prince of birds, being Garuda the son of Vinata and Kasyapa.
Mbh.13.17.2293 Thou art Garuda, the prince of birds, born of Vinata by Kasyapa, otherwise called Tarkshya.
Mbh.13.17.2572 Thou art the youngest son of Aditi and Kasyapa, being in the form of the dwarf who is otherwise known by the name of Upendra and who beguiled the Asura Vali of his lordship of the three worlds and restored it to the chief of the celestials.
Mbh.13.22.3221 Listen now to me, O son of Pritha, as I recite to thee the opinions of these four persons of mighty energy, viz, the goddess Earth, the Rishi Kasyapa, Agni the deity of fire and the ascetic Markandeya'
Mbh.13.22.3223 Kasyapa said, The Vedas with their six branches, the Sankhya philosophy, the Puranas, and high birth, these fail to rescue a regenerate person if he falls away from good conduct
Mbh.13.22.3227 Bhishma continued, Having spoken these words, those four persons, each of whom is endued with immeasurable energy, viz, the goddess Earth, Kasyapa, Agni, and Bhrigu's son armed with weapons, quickly went away'
Mbh.13.25.3500 Angiras himself had obtained it from Kasyapa of great intelligence.
Mbh.13.26.3511 There were also Vrihaspati and Usanas, and Vyasa and Chyavana and Kasyapa and Dhruva, and Durvasas and Jamadagni and Markandeya and Galava, and Bharadwaja and Raibhya and Yavakrita and Trita.
Mbh.13.47.4931 Even this is what was declared by the great Rishi Kasyapa the son of Marichi'
Mbh.13.62.6006 Hearing that verse Jamadagni's son Rama gave away the whole earth unto Kasyapa.
Mbh.13.66.6266 Sesame seeds sprang from the limbs of the great Rishi Kasyapa.
Mbh.13.66.6284 Brahman said, Ye foremost of deities, I shall give you a piece of earth whereon, ye sons of Kasyapa, you shall perform your intended sacrifice'
Mbh.13.84.7514 Repairing then to Vasishtha and Agastya and Kasyapa, that delighter of the Bhrigus, endued with great energy, asked them that question, Ye foremost of Brahmanas, even this is the wish that has arisen in my heart.
Mbh.13.85.7790 From Marichi afterwards sprang Kasyapa.
Mbh.13.92.8230 The Grandsire Brahman, Pulastya, Vasishtha, Pulaha, Angiras, Kratu and the great Rishi Kasyapa, these, O prince of Kuru's race, and regarded as great masters of Yoga.
Mbh.13.93.8278 Kasyapa and Atri and Vasishtha and Bharadwaja and Gautama and Viswamitra and Jamadagni, and the chaste Arundhati the wife of Vasishtha, all had a common maidservant whose name was Ganda.
Mbh.13.93.8280 Kasyapa and others, in days of old, observed the austerest penances and roved over the world, desirous of attaining to the eternal region of Brahman by the aid of Yoga-meditation.
Mbh.13.93.8325 Kasyapa said, All the paddy and barley on earth, all the gold and animals and women that occur in the world, are incapable of gratifying the desire of a single person.
Mbh.13.93.8377 Kasyapa said, This man has not, like us, four brothers of the whole blood who are begging from house to house, uttering the words, Give, Give'
Mbh.13.93.8422 Kasyapa said, I always protect my body, and in consequence of my penances I have become endued with effulgence.
Mbh.13.93.8423 For thus protecting the body and for this effulgence that is due to my penances, I have come to be called by the name of Kasyapa'
Mbh.13.93.8477 Kasyapa, said, Let him who has stolen the lotus-stalks utter all kinds of words in all places, give false evidence in a court of law, eat the flesh of animals not slain in sacrifices, make gifts to undeserving persons or to deserving persons at unseasonable times, and have sexual congress with women during daytime
Mbh.13.94.8550 There were Sakra and Angiras and Kavi of great learning and Agastya and Narada and Pravata; and Bhrigu and Vasishtha and Kasyapa and Gautama and Viswamitra and Jamadagni, O king!
Mbh.13.94.8576 Kasyapa said, Let him who has stolen thy stalks sell all things in all places, misappropriate deposits, and give false evidence'
Mbh.13.139.11418 For beholding him who had gone through the rite of initiation for the observance of his great vow, there came to that place Narada and Parvata, and the Island-born Krishna, and Dhaumya, that foremost of silent reciters, and Devala, and Kasyapa, and Hastikasyapa.
Mbh.13.146.12166 Kasyapa has Aditi.
Mbh.13.147.12360 Once on a time the mighty Garuda, the son of Kasyapa, was addressed by the deities in these words, Do thou, O puissant one, see if this one has any end'
Mbh.13.149.12530 He that took birth as a dwarf from Aditi by her husband Kasyapa in order to beguile the Asura king Vali of the sovereignty of the three worlds, and bestow the same upon Indra who had been dispossessed of it, He that is tall in allusion to the vast universal form of His which He assumed at the sacrifice of Vali for covering Heaven, Earth, and the Nether regions with three steps of His.

Mbh.14.16.476 Filled with wonder at the sight of those extraordinary accomplishments, Kasyapa began to wait upon that foremost of all Brahmanas, with the dutiful reverence of a disciple waiting upon his preceptor and succeeded in propitiating him.
Mbh.14.16.477 By his devotion, O scorcher of foes, rendering to hint the obedience due from a disciple to a preceptor, Kasyapa gratified that Brahmana who possessed all these accomplishments and was endued, besides, with scriptural learning and excellent conduct.

Mbh.14.16.518 Surely, O Kasyapa, thou art possessed of great intelligence'
Mbh.14.17.521 Kasyapa said, How does the body dissolve away, and how is another acquired?
Mbh.14.17.527 The Brahmana said, Thus urged by Kasyapa, the emancipated sage answered those questions one after another.
