MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.96 When the Kauravas saw them introduced as the sons of Pandu, the distinguished class of citizens shouted exceedingly for joy.
Mbh.1.1.171 When I heard that the blind Kauravas were shouting for joy after having slain Abhimanyu and that thereupon Arjuna in anger made his celebrated speech referring to Saindhava, then, O Sanjaya, I had no hope of success.
Mbh.1.2.265 In the interval between the Dwapara and the Kali Yugas there happened at Samanta-panchaka the encounter between the armies of the Kauravas and the Pandavas.
Mbh.1.2.278 Time, whose acts are wonderful assembled them on that spot and having made the Kauravas the cause, destroyed them all.
Mbh.1.2.317 Then the destruction of the Kichakas, then the attempt to take the kine of Virata by the Kauravas.
Mbh.1.2.348 The next must be known as Sraddha' describing the funeral rites performed for the slain Kauravas.
Mbh.1.2.411 Then comes the despatch by the Pandavas of their Purohita priest to the Kauravas.
Mbh.1.2.467 In this the number of sections is fifty-nine and the number of slokas composed by the great Vyasa, the spreader of the fame of the Kauravas, is three thousand, two hundred and twenty.
Mbh.1.2.492 Then hath been described the wending of the distressed Dhritarashtra accompanied by the ladies of his house to the field of battle of the Kauravas.
Mbh.1.40.2122 Afterwards, once upon a time, there was a king, O Brahmana, of the name of Parikshit, born in the race of the Kauravas.
Mbh.1.126.6769 The Kauravas, then, accompanied by their priest, saluted the Rishis by lowering their heads, and took their seats before them.
Mbh.1.127.6811 When the other funeral ceremonies also were finished in consonance with the directions of the priests, the Kauravas set fire to the dead bodies of the king and the queen, bringing lotuses, sandal-paste, and other fragrant substances to the pyre.
Mbh.1.128.6823 And they feasted the Kauravas and thousands of Brahmanas unto whom they also gave gems and lands.
Mbh.1.128.6830 The empire of the Kauravas will no longer endure because of wrong and oppression.
Mbh.1.128.6871 The Kauravas and the Pandavas sat down and began to enjoy the things provided for them.
Mbh.1.129.6907 SECTION CXXIX Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Meanwhile the Kauravas and the Pandavas, after having thus sported there, set out, without Bhima, for Hastinapura, some on horses, some on elephants, while others preferred cars and other conveyances.
Mbh.1.131.6993 Deciding, O chief of the Bharatas, that none who was not possessed of great intelligence, none who was not illustrious or a perfect master of the science of arms, none who was not of godlike might, should be the instructor of the Kuru princes, the son of Ganga, O tiger among men, placed the Pandavas and the Kauravas under the tuition of Bharadwaja's son, the intelligent Drona skilled in all the Vedas.
Mbh.1.131.6996 And, O monarch, both the Kauravas and the Pandavas endued with immeasurable strength, in a short time became proficient in the use of all kinds of arms'
Mbh.1.134.7169 And that first of archers, Drona, thereupon joyfully, accepted the Kauravas, viz, the sons of Pandu and Dhritarashtra, as his pupils.
Mbh.1.140.7455 The Kauravas, then, O Bharata, beholding the battle become frightful, broke and fled wailing towards the Pandavas.
Mbh.1.148.7887 Why will he, by showing his wrath, make the Kauravas angry with him?
Mbh.1.152.7973 There is little doubt that even Bhishma, the son of Santanu, and Drona and Vidura and Kripa and other Kauravas have not, any of them, followed the dictates of duty.
Mbh.1.169.8691 This slender-waisted one will, in time, accomplish the purpose of the gods, and along with her many a danger will overtake the Kauravas'
Mbh.1.207.10209 He then gave, O monarch, unto the Pandavas and Kunti and Draupadi, and unto Drupada and Drupada's sons, the gems and various kinds of wealth that the Kauravas had sent through him.
Mbh.1.208.10239 King Dhritarashtra, hearing that those heroes had neared the capital sent out the Kauravas to receive them.
Mbh.1.221.10770 Alone shall I today make the earth destitute of Kauravas!
Mbh.2.45.1851 And O perpetuator of the Kuru race, all the Kauravas have prospered in consequence of thee.
Mbh.2.62.2508 Listen, ye sons of Santanu, ye descendants of Pratipa, who are now in this assembly of the Kauravas, to these words of wisdom.
Mbh.2.66.2714 It seemeth that the end of the Kauravas is at hand.
Mbh.2.66.2720 Let not that morality now abandon the Kauravas.
Mbh.2.66.2729 Let the Kauravas answer her question before her face.
Mbh.2.66.2797 Having obtained the Pandavas as her lords, it is for thee alone that she is being thus persecuted by the low, despicable, cruel, and mean-minded Kauravas.
Mbh.2.66.2819 And at last the prince said, Ye kings of the earth, ye Kauravas, whether ye answer this question or not, I will say what I regard as just and proper.
Mbh.2.66.2852 O Kesava, seest thou not that the Kauravas are humiliating me.
Mbh.2.66.2875 the Kauravas answer not the question that hath been put to them by Draupadi.
Mbh.2.67.2935 Alas, these Kauravas also suffer their daughter-in-law, so unworthy of such treatment, to be thus afflicted before them.
Mbh.2.67.2940 Alas, that eternal usage hath disappeared from among the Kauravas.
Mbh.2.67.2942 Ye Kauravas, I am the wedded wife of king Yudhishthira the just, hailing from the same dynasty to which the King belonged.
Mbh.2.67.2946 Ye Kauravas, I cannot bear it any longer.
Mbh.2.68.2966 Indeed, all the Kauravas present in this assembly are floating in the ocean of thy distress.
Mbh.2.68.2973 And at these words of Duryodhana, so delightful to his partisans, the Kauravas present in that assembly became exceedingly glad.
Mbh.2.69.3015 Alas, the Kauravas are even now engaged in sinful consultations.
Mbh.2.69.3016 Ye Kauravas, take to your heart this high precept that I declare.
Mbh.2.69.3025 But having lost himself, let all the Kauravas judge whose master he could be after that
Mbh.2.77.3285 Fortunate are the Kauravas that they have not been burnt by thy wrath.
Mbh.2.77.3338 And the ladies of Dhritarashtra's house, hearing everything as it happened, viz, the exile of the Pandavas and the dragging of Krishna into the assembly where the princes had gambled, loudly wept censuring the Kauravas.
Mbh.2.78.3380 Vaisampayana continued, And, O monarch, while king Dhritarashtra and the wise Vidura were thus talking with each other, there appeared in that assembly of the Kauravas and before the eyes of all, the best of the celestial Rishis.
Mbh.2.78.3381 And appealing before them all, he uttered these terrible words, On the fourteenth year hence, the Kauravas, in consequence of Duryodhana's fault, will all be destroyed by the might of Bhima and Arjuna.
Mbh.2.78.3400 What grief can be greater to me in this world than this, ye Kauravas that Dhrishtadyumna is the destined slayer of Drona, this belief is general.
Mbh.3.4.280 Thou knowest also all the subtleties or morality, and thou lookest on all the Kauravas with an equal eye.
Mbh.3.5.339 I pointed out what was beneficial to both the Kauravas and Dhritarashtra.
Mbh.3.8.416 I will tell thee that which is for the great good of all the Kauravas!
Mbh.3.8.418 O Bharata, on the expiration of the thirteenth year, recollecting all their woes, they may shower death-dealing weapons, even like virulent poison, upon the Kauravas!
Mbh.3.9.467 O king of the earth, if thou desirest all the Kauravas to live, let thy son Duryodhana make peace with the Pandavas
Mbh.3.10.480 Will the brotherly affection of the Kauravas ever be impaired'
Mbh.3.10.484 Therefore, it is that I have come to thee, for the good of the Kauravas, since, O exalted one, my affection is great for thee and I am delighted with thee!
Mbh.3.13.748 And, O irrepressible one, coming unto the gambling-match, even if uninvited by the son of Amvika Dhritarashtra, or Duryodhana, or by the other Kauravas, I would have prevented the game from taking place, by showing its many evils, summoning to my aid Bhishma and Drona and Kripa, and Vahlika!
Mbh.3.14.771 And, O foremost of the Kauravas, listen to the reasons I had for so doing!
Mbh.3.25.1210 Firm in thy promises, O illustrious one, having passed in the woods thy painful exile, thou wilt again, O king, snatch from the Kauravas thy blazing prosperity with the help of thy own energy
Mbh.3.36.1867 Those kings and chiefs of the earth also who have been injured by us, have all adopted the side of the Kauravas, and are bound by ties of affection to them.
Mbh.3.80.3931 Without that mighty-armed one relying upon whom the Panchalas and the Kauravas fear not the sternly-exerting ranks of the celestials themselves, without that illustrious hero relying upon whose arms we all regard our foes as already vanquished and the earth itself as already conquered, without that Phalguna I cannot obtain any peace in the woods of Kamyaka.
Mbh.3.95.5022 And repeatedly offering oblations of water, O Bharata, to the gods, the pitris, and the Brahmanas, in the tirthas called Kanya, Aswa, and Go and staying as directed in Kalakoti and the Vishaprastha hills, the Kauravas then, O king, reached Vahuda and performed their ablution in that stream.
Mbh.3.239.12030 Then the whole of the Gandharva host began to fight with the Kauravas.
Mbh.3.239.12033 And the Kauravas beholding the Gandharvas so afflicted sent up a loud sound.
Mbh.3.241.12099 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words of Ajatasatru, Dhananjaya pledged himself, from respect for these commands of his superior, to liberate the Kauravas.
Mbh.3.241.12101 And hearing that pledge of the truth-speaking Arjuna, the Kauravas then, O king, regained the lost tenor of their minds
Mbh.3.244.12154 SECTION CCXLIV Vaisampayana said, Then that mighty bowman of blazing splendour, Arjuna, smilingly said unto Chitrasena in the midst of the Gandharva host, What purpose dost thou serve, O hero, in punishing the Kauravas?
Mbh.3.244.12172 And Ajatasatru, hearing everything that the Gandharvas had said, liberated all the Kauravas and applauded the Gandharvas.
Mbh.3.253.12489 Thus accosted, that best of Brahmanas spake unto the king, saying, O foremost of the Kauravas, while Yudhishthira is living, that best of sacrifices cannot be performed in thy family, O Prince of kings!
Mbh.3.254.12531 And that foremost among monarchs, Dhritarashtra, surrounded by all the Kauravas, experienced the height of joy, and spake unto Vidura, saying, Do thou, O Kshatta, speedily so act that all persons in the sacrificial compound may be served with food, be refreshed and satisfied'
Mbh.3.255.12549 And that best of kings also addressed the Kurus around him, saying, When shall I, ye Kauravas, having slain all the Pandavas, celebrate that costly and foremost of sacrifices, the Rajasuya'
Mbh.3.256.12589 And as pious men enter the celestial regions, those foremost of the Bharata race, the Kauravas, surrounded by those bulls among Brahmanas entered that forest
Mbh.4.4.122 Ye Kauravas, honourably or otherwise, ye will have to pass this year in the king's palace, undiscovered by those that know you.
Mbh.4.6.248 Having vanquished and slain the ranks of the Kauravas through my grace, victory in battle will soon be thine.
Mbh.4.30.1227 Crooked and wrathful and of wicked soul, of prowess famed over all the world, sinful in deeds and highly cruel, that wretch, however, hath been slain by the Gandharvas, Kichaka being dead, king Virata, shorn of pride and his refuge gone, will, I imagine, lose all courage I think, we ought now to invade that kingdom, if it pleases thee, O sinless one, as also the illustrious Karna and all the Kauravas.
Mbh.4.30.1232 Uniting, O king, the forces of the Kauravas and the Trigartas, let us lift his cattle in droves.
Mbh.4.30.1244 We will, with all the Kauravas go to the appointed place.
Mbh.4.30.1252 And then, O king, on the eighth day following of the dark fortnight, the Kauravas also accompanied by all their troops, began to seize the kine by thousands
Mbh.4.35.1418 And the Kauravas, surrounding all sides with a multitude of cars, seized sixty thousands of kine.
Mbh.4.35.1423 And he said, the Kauravas are taking away sixty thousand kine.
Mbh.4.38.1526 It was thou that hadst ordered me, saying, Take me towards the Kauravas.
Mbh.4.38.1559 Vaisampayana continued, Beholding the disguised son of Pandu, the Kauravas, O Bharata, began to indulge in these surmises, but they could not come to any definite conclusion.
Mbh.4.39.1593 Therefore, ye Kauravas, I do not see any hero who can withstand him.
Mbh.4.45.1754 Thou, O son of Kunti, art without a follower, while the Kauravas have many.
Mbh.4.48.1877 The Kauravas will today behold Partha with his car broken, his horses killed, his valour gone, and himself sighing like a snake.
Mbh.4.48.1878 Let the Kauravas, following their own will go away taking this wealth of kine, or, if they wish, let them stay on their cars and witness my combat
Mbh.4.52.2017 Vaisampayana continued, These words spoken by the high-souled Bhishma were acceptable to them, and the king of the Kauravas acted accordingly without delay.
Mbh.4.53.2021 SECTION LIII Vaisampayana said, After the Kauravas, O Bharata, had taken their stand in this order, Arjuna, filling the air with the rattle and din of his car, advanced quickly towards them.
Mbh.4.54.2076 And seeing that an encounter was imminent between them, the Kauravas, anxious to witness it, stood aloof as lookers on.
Mbh.4.55.2102 And the earth, bestrewn in a short time with the corpses of elephants belonging to the Kauravas, looked like the sky overcast with masses of black clouds.
Mbh.4.61.2385 The Kauravas shall behold the gold decked back of my Gandiva today, and assembled together the foe shall dispute, saying, By which hand of his, the right or the left, doth he should?
Mbh.4.63.2463 And then the Kauravas exclaimed,
Mbh.4.66.2579 And the Kauravas were unable to confront Arjuna while after routing the foe he proceeded towards the city of Virata, like an elephant with rent temples.
Mbh.4.66.2592 Vaisampayana continued, When all the Kauravas utterly routed and vanquished, set out in a dejected mood for Hastinapura, Falguna, on his way back, addressed Uttara, saying, O prince, O hero of mighty arms, seeing the kine escorted in advance of us by the cowherds, we shall enter Virata's metropolis in the afternoon, having tended the steeds with drink and a bath.
Mbh.4.67.2605 Vaisampayana continued, Then king Virata, hearing that his brave son had gone forth with only one car and with Vrihannala as his car-driver, became filled with grief, and addressing his chief counsellors, said, Without doubt, the Kauravas and other lords of earth, learning the defeat of the Trigartas, will never keep their ground.
Mbh.4.67.2637 Vaisampayana continued, While the play was going on, Matsya said unto the son of Pandu, Lo, the Kauravas that are so formidable have been vanquished in battle by my son'
Mbh.4.68.2685 How also couldst thou, O child, encounter Drona, that foremost of all wielders of weapons, that preceptor of the Vrishnis and Kauravas, twice-born one who may be regarded as the preceptor of all the Kshatriyas?
Mbh.4.69.2695 It was by him that the kine have been recovered and the Kauravas vanquished.
Mbh.4.70.2737 And, O king, the Kauravas and other lords of earth always waited upon him like slaves, as the celestials upon Kuvera.
Mbh.4.71.2769 By him have the kine been recovered and the Kauravas vanquished in battle.
Mbh.5.6.161 Therefore, I ask you to set out without delay towards the Kauravas with the object of promoting the interests of the Pandavas, timing your departure under the astrological combination called Pushya and at that part of the day called Jaya'
Mbh.5.19.843 And for this reason the land of the five rivers, and the whole of the region called Kurujangala, and the forest of Rohitaka which was uniformly wild, and Ahichatra and Kalakuta, and the banks of the Ganga, and Varana, and Vatadhana, and the hill tracts on the border of the Yamuna, the whole of this extensive tract, full of abundant corn and wealth, was entirely overspread with the army of the Kauravas.
Mbh.5.20.846 And having first told the news of the welfare of the Pandavas, he enquired about the welfare of the Kauravas.
Mbh.5.31.1401 All this, indeed, the Kauravas know.
Mbh.5.32.1441 Dhritarashtra said, O child, giving my blessings to Ajatasatru, I ask thee, O Sanjaya, whether that king of the Kauravas, Pritha's son, is well with his sons and brothers and counsellors'
Mbh.5.47.2664 And the Suta said, Ye Kauravas, know that having gone to the Pandavas I am just returning from them.
Mbh.5.48.2689 When the Kuru prince will behold the five heroic sons of Draupadi, tender in years but not in acts, and all well-versed in arms, rush, reckless of their lives, against the Kauravas, then will that son of Dhritarashtra repent for this war.
Mbh.5.48.2727 When I consume the Kauravas, like Agni consuming innumerable wicked souls assembled together at the time of ushering in another Yuga at the end of the last one, then Dhritarashtra with all his sons repent.
Mbh.5.48.2769 Ye Kauravas, ye will see it with your eyes that, if they fight, the sons of Dhritarashtra shall certainly perish.
Mbh.5.48.2787 But so let it be even as the aged Bhishma, the son of Santanu, and Kripa, and Drona with his son, and Vidura endued with great wisdom, are saying, May the Kauravas all live long
Mbh.5.49.2820 If thou heedest not my words, thou shalt then have to hear of the slaughter of many, for all the Kauravas accept thy opinion.
Mbh.5.49.2843 From that moment, when the king returned not a proper answer to Bhishma and Drona, the Kauravas gave up all hopes of life
Mbh.5.51.2920 That the Kauravas in consequence of Bhishma's prowess, and the Andhakas and the Vrishnis in consequence of their policy, could not be subjugated by him was due only to their good fortune.
Mbh.5.51.2944 These foolish Kauravas will all be destroyed, their Time having come.
Mbh.5.53.2990 Ye Kauravas, be ye of the same mind.
Mbh.5.54.3013 Beholding the host sinking in despair when smitten by Bhima, the Kauravas headed by Duryodhana will all meet destruction.
Mbh.5.57.3194 Thou art, indeed, quite competent to smite alone the Kauravas.
Mbh.5.58.3211 All the Kauravas deem just this to be consistent with justice, that thou shouldst make peace with the high-souled sons of Pandu.
Mbh.5.58.3215 Indeed, those warriors upon whom the Kauravas, when afflicted by the foe, will have to rely, do not approve of the war.
Mbh.5.66.3430 O Sanjaya, our grandsire, the son of Santanu, and Dhritarashtra, and Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and king Vahlika, and Drona's son, and Somadatta, and Sakuni the son of Suvala; and Dussasana, and Sala, and Purumitra, and Vivingsati; Vikarna, and Chitrasena, and king Jayatsena, and Vinda and Anuvinda, the two chiefs of Avanti, and Bhurisravas, and king Bhagadatta, and king Jarasandha and other rulers of the earth, assembled there to fight for the good of the Kauravas, are all on the eve of death.
Mbh.5.71.3529 The assembled Kauravas will behold that high-souled and adorable One, that slayer of foes, that chief of the Vrishnis, uttering words full of kindness, and fascinating all of my party.
Mbh.5.72.3586 Our first-efforts will be such that, O Madhava, both ourselves and the Kauravas, united in peace, will quietly enjoy our prosperity.
Mbh.5.72.3587 Otherwise, we shall, after slaying the worst of the Kauravas, regain those provinces, although success through bloodshed by destruction of even despicable foes that are related to us so dearly is the worst of all fierce deeds, O Krishna.
Mbh.5.73.3682 In the very sight of the Grandsire Bhishma and Drona and the wise Vidura, of many holy Brahmanas, the king, the citizens, and all the chief Kauravas, the cruel Duryodhana, deceitfully defeating thee at dice, thee that are charitable, gentle, self-restrained, virtuous, and of rigid vows was not, O king, ashamed of his vile act.
Mbh.5.74.3727 Before this, the Kauravas with their son passed their days in cheerfulness, and we also with our friends rejoiced like the younger brother of Indra, with Indra himself.
Mbh.5.77.3810 If the Kauravas make peace, then boundless fame will be mine.
Mbh.5.77.3812 If, however, the Kauravas, without listening to my words, resolve to maintain their opinion, then there will undoubtedly be a formidable war.
Mbh.5.81.3888 Even if the Kauravas express their desire for peace with the Pandavas, still, O thou of Dasarha's race, provoke thou a war with them.
Mbh.5.82.3940 My five sons also that are endued with great energy, with Abhimanyu, O slayer of Madhu, at their head, will fight with the Kauravas.
Mbh.5.91.4285 And then the Kauravas, with all the kings there present, worshipped Govinda on his seat and resembling the sun himself in splendour.
Mbh.5.91.4317 And while that mighty-armed one staying within Vidura's abode, thither came unto him Drona, and Kripa, and Bhishma, and Vahlika, and many of the Kauravas.
Mbh.5.91.4318 And the Kauravas that came there addressed Madhava, the heroic slayer of Madhu, saying, O thou of Vrishni's race, we place at thy disposal our houses with all the wealth within them'
Mbh.5.93.4387 If without sacrificing the interests of the Pandavas I can bring about peace among the Kurus, my conduct will be regarded as highly meritorious, O high-souled one, and the Kauravas themselves will be liberated from the meshes of death.
Mbh.5.93.4388 If the sons of Dhritarashtra reflect coolly on the words I shall utter, words fraught with wisdom, consistent with righteousness, and possessed of grave import, then that peace which is my object will be brought about and the Kauravas will also worship me as the agent thereof.
Mbh.5.97.4615 Let the Pandavas and the Kauravas both rule this earth.
Mbh.5.124.5543 Let not the race of Kauravas be exterminated or reduced.
Mbh.5.128.5646 All the Kauravas know what words were addressed in their assembly by Dussasana unto those chastisers of foes, the sons of Kunti, when they were about to set out for the woods.
Mbh.5.128.5662 Vaisampayana continued, While he, of Dasarha's race, was saying this, Dussasana addressed vindictive Duryodhana and said unto him these words in the midst of the Kurus, If, O king, thou dost not willingly make peace with the Pandavas, verity the Kauravas will bind thee hand and foot and make over thee to the son of Kunti.
Mbh.5.131.5841 And seeing that tiger among men leave the court, the Kauravas with all the kings followed him, like the gods following Indra.
Mbh.5.131.5851 The Kauravas and all the kings of the Earth, also know, O Madhava, that I have made every endeavour to bring about peace'
Mbh.5.143.6400 All auspicious birds, such as peacocks, swans, cranes, Chatakas, Jivajivas, and large flights of Vakas, follow the Pandavas, while vultures, Kankas, hawks, Rakshasas, wolves and bees, in flights and herds, follow the Kauravas.
Mbh.5.146.6545 Hearing these words of Karna, Kunti who was trembling with grief, embraced her son who was unmoved in consequence of his fortitude, and said, Indeed, O Karna, even if what thou sayest seemeth to be possible, the Kauravas will certainly be exterminated.
Mbh.5.150.6733 Eleven Akshauhinis of troops have been, O King, assembled for the Kauravas.
Mbh.5.155.6883 As regards ourselves, we do not desire to make peace with the Kauravas by abandoning our property.
Mbh.5.158.7018 For these reasons, I shall now repair to the tirtha of the Saraswati for ablutions, for I shall not be able to behold with indifference the destruction of the Kauravas.
Mbh.5.160.7066 SECTION CLX Janamejaya said, After the soldiers had been arrayed thus in order of battle on the field of Kurukshetra, what, O bull among Brahmanas, did the Kauravas then do, urged as they were by destiny itself'
Mbh.5.161.7085 SECTION CLXI Uluka Dutagamana Parva Sanjaya said, After the high-souled Pandavas, O king, had encamped by the side of the Hiranwati, the Kauravas also fixed their camps.
Mbh.5.161.7158 Thou hadst also said, Know, ye Kauravas that it is with Arjuna, having me for his second, ye have provoked hostilities'
Mbh.5.166.7493 Having accepted also the command of the Kauravas, what did that foremost of warriors, Ganga's son, of exceeding intelligence and prowess, do'
Mbh.5.167.7540 O best of kings, the Kauravas will behold the prowess of this lion among car-warriors exerted for thee, to be equal to that of Indra himself in battle.
Mbh.5.173.7790 The Rathas and Atirathas, according to their precedence, have now been declared by me to thee, and they also that are half Rathas, belonging to thee or them, O chief of the Kauravas!
Mbh.5.173.7794 I then installed Chitrangada in the sovereignty of the Kauravas, making at the same time the child Vichitravirya the Yuvaraja.
Mbh.5.185.8321 indeed, O king, when thus I fell down on the earth, Rama, filled with joy, sent forth loud shouts along with his followers, while all the Kauravas who stood beside me and all those who came there to witness the combat were afflicted with great woe on seeing me fall.
Mbh.6.1.6 Entering Kurukshetra, the Pandavas endued with great might, along with the Somakas, advanced, desirous of victory, against the Kauravas.
Mbh.6.1.29 The whole earth was empty, having only the children and the old left at home, in consequence of that large army mustered by the Kauravas
Mbh.6.3.195 Let the Pandavas have their kingdom, and let the Kauravas have peace
Mbh.6.12.674 Listen now to what I truly say about the heavenly bodies and about Swarbhanu, O chief of the Kauravas, as regards its dimensions.
Mbh.6.16.826 The eleventh great division of the Kauravas, consisting of the Dhartarashtra troops, stood in advance of the whole army.
Mbh.6.16.835 Never before, O king, did we see or hear of two such armies encountering each other like these of the Kauravas'
Mbh.6.20.952 The Kauravas belonging to the Dhritarashtra party stood facing the west, while the Parthas stood facing the east, addrest for fight.
Mbh.6.20.953 The troops of the Kauravas looked like the army of the chief of the Danavas, while that of the Pandavas looked like the army of the celestials.
Mbh.6.43.2018 Then those warriors all praised the Kauravas.
Mbh.6.43.2039 I have been bound by the Kauravas with their wealth.
Mbh.6.43.2040 It is for this, O son of Kuru's race, that like a eunuch I am uttering these words, viz, Bound I am by the Kauravas with wealth.
Mbh.6.43.2043 Do battle, however for the sake of the Kauravas.
Mbh.6.43.2069 Bound I have been with their wealth by the Kauravas!
Mbh.6.43.2070 It is for this that like a eunuch I shall fight for the sake of the Kauravas.
Mbh.6.43.2072 I shall fight for the sake of the Kauravas, but will pray for thy victory
Mbh.6.43.2074 Fight, however, for the Kauravas.
Mbh.6.43.2097 This is very true, O king, and bound I have been with wealth by the Kauravas.
Mbh.6.43.2122 Bound I have been with wealth by the Kauravas, O nephew, it is for this that I am speaking to thee like a eunuch, I will accomplish the desire thou mayst cherish.
Mbh.6.43.2128 I shall, of course, fight for the sake of thy enemy, for I have been made one of their party by the Kauravas with their wealth
Mbh.6.48.2414 SECTION XLVIII Dhritarashtra said, When that great bowman Sweta proceeded towards Salya's car, what did the Kauravas and the Pandavas do, O Sanjaya?
Mbh.6.50.2635 Putting forth thy prowess, O tiger among men, slay the Kauravas.
Mbh.6.52.2701 Then, O great king, Bhishma, the grandsire of the Kauravas, struck Arjuna with seventy-seven arrows and Drona struck him with five and twenty, and Kripa with fifty, and Duryodhana with four and sixty, and Salya with nine arrows; and Drona's son, that tiger among men, with sixty, and Vikarna with three arrows; and Saindhava with nine and Sakuni with five.
Mbh.6.52.2739 And by the sight of his standard alone, the Kauravas could approach him for aid.
Mbh.6.57.3004 And the array of the Kauravas, O king, could not be broken, duly protected as it was by Bharadwaja's son, O sire
Mbh.6.59.3163 And the Kauravas also beholding the Somakas routed, are rushing to battle cheerfully, gladdening the grandsire.
Mbh.6.60.3272 And all the Kauravas with thy sons, beholding that ape-bannered warrior with his excellent standard and handsome car-shaft wrapped in costly cover, accompanied by that bull of Yadu's race, his charioteer in battle, were filled with dismay.
Mbh.6.64.3503 Hearing these words of the grandsire, the Kauravas, afflicted with the fear of Ghatotkacha, and availing of the advent of night as a pretext, gladly did what the grandsire said.
Mbh.6.64.3504 And after the Kauravas had withdrawn, the Pandavas, crowned with victory uttered leonine roars, mingling them with the blare of conches and the notes of pipes.
Mbh.6.64.3506 And the Kauravas also, vanquished by the Pandavas and overcome with shame, retired to their own tents when night came.
Mbh.6.69.3749 Bhima, penetrating the Makara array of the Kauravas through its mouth, and approaching Bhishma, covered him with his shafts.
Mbh.6.72.3844 And that mighty car-warrior Yudhishthira, deceitfully treated by thy son, proceeded in that battle, O king, against the elephant division of the Kauravas.
Mbh.6.72.3850 And when the sun had reached the meridian and the sky was brilliantly illumined by his rays, the Kauravas and the Pandavas began to slay one another.
Mbh.6.74.3931 Beholding this, the mighty sons of Yuyudhana, all mighty car-warriors of great renown, cased in excellent mail, bearing diverse arms, and possessing excellent standards, approaching that great bowman, viz, Bhurisravas, in battle, wrathfully addressed that warrior bearing on his standard the device of a sacrificial stake, and said these words, Listen, O kinsman of the Kauravas, O thou that art possessed of great strength, come, fight in battle with us, ie, with either all of us jointly or with each of us separately.
Mbh.6.74.3957 And the troops of both the Pandavas and the Kurus, filled with fear and anxiety in course of that dreadful encounter, proceeded to their respective camps, the Pandavas with the Srinjayas and the Kauravas also rested for the night agreeably to the rules of military science
Mbh.6.75.3971 And with elephants and steeds and cars and infantry, and with standards upraised and umbrellas set up, and armed with bright, whetted weapons, they quickly proceeded against the Kauravas.
Mbh.6.75.3982 Then the Pandavas, O king, rushed against the Kauravas for battle.
Mbh.6.75.3999 And the Pandavas and the Kauravas, O king, in that conflict, fought with one another counteracting one another's weapons
Mbh.6.77.4086 And the Kauravas fled away in all directions, with their steeds and elephants and cars, beholding those sons of thine deprived of their senses in a swoon like those whose hours had come.
Mbh.6.79.4134 Then the mighty car-warriors of thy army, including Duryodhana and others, beholding Abhimanyu and Bhimasena united with Prishata's son in the midst of the Kauravas troops, took up their bows, and borne by their fleet steeds rushed to the spot where those warriors were.
Mbh.6.79.4149 And in that part of the field headless trunks stood up by thousands, amongst the troops, O Bharata, of both the Kauravas and the Pandavas.
Mbh.6.86.4547 Thereupon the Kauravas all around beholding that upraised mace resembling the rod of Death, forsaking thy brave son, fled away, desirous of avoiding its fall amongst them.
Mbh.6.87.4607 Then the Pandavas, and the Kauravas, retiring to their tents, entered the same, applauding one another.
Mbh.6.88.4614 SECTION LXXXVIII Sanjaya said, Having passed the night in sound steep, those rulers of men, the Kauravas and the Pandavas, once more proceeded to battle.
Mbh.6.88.4616 Then king Duryodhana, and Chitrasena, and Vivinsati, and that foremost of car-warriors, viz, Bhishma and Bharadwaja's son possessed of great prowess, those mighty car-warriors, clad in mail and uniting together, O King, formed with great care the array of the Kauravas against the Pandavas.
Mbh.6.89.4664 Then in that encounter between Bhima and Bhishma, a fierce and terrible uproar arose among all the troops of the Kauravas.
Mbh.6.89.4694 From the way in which that mighty armed hero is slaying the Kauravas, it seemeth that that mighty son of Pandu hath assuredly taken his birth for the destruction of thy sons.
Mbh.6.90.4719 Indeed, the Kauravas are now being destroyed for having rejected those words, deserving of acceptance, of Vidura and Drona and Bhishma and thy other well-wishers.
Mbh.6.90.4729 And the heroic Abhimanyu, and that mighty car-warrior, viz, the son of Hidimva, and Bhimasena excited with wrath, rushed against the other Kauravas.
Mbh.6.90.4730 Thus the Pandavas, divided into three bodies began to slaughter the Kauravas.
Mbh.6.90.4731 And similarly the Kauravas also, O king, began to slaughter their foes
Mbh.6.90.4740 Then in that battle Bhima excited with wrath, fell with great impetuosity upon the elephant division of the Kauravas and began to send many to the regions of Death.
Mbh.6.91.4807 Accompanied by the remnant of that excellent cavalry division of the Kauravas, he proceeded, desirous of slaying in battle the mighty Iravat.
Mbh.6.95.5026 Drona and Duryodhana and Salya and Aswatthaman, and other great bowmen that were regarded as foremost among the Kauravas, also seemed to fly away.
Mbh.6.96.5120 Towards that mighty division of the Kauravas thus advancing with impetuosity, Arjuna of white steeds rushed with great impetuosity.
Mbh.6.97.5127 In this battle, O slayer of Madhu, many other heroes have been slain by the Kaurava and many amongst the Kauravas have similarly been slain by ourselves.
Mbh.6.98.5230 The mighty chief of the Kurus, adored by all the Kauravas, thus proceeded, O king, towards the quarters of the renowned son of Ganga.
Mbh.6.104.5578 Neither the sons of Pandu, O king, nor their troops, nor they that follow them, nor the Kauravas, show the least regard for their lives in battle.
Mbh.6.105.5594 The sun having reached the meridian, the Kauravas, O king, fought with the Pandavas in one confused mass.
Mbh.6.109.5921 And similarly the Kauravas, O king, placing that mighty car-warrior Bhishma at the head of their whole host, proceeded against the Pandavas.
Mbh.6.112.6090 And seeing that mighty car-warrior among the Vrishnis thus surrounded, Duryodhana, angrily addressing all his brothers, said, Take such steps, ye Kauravas, that Satyaki may not, in this battle, escape you and this large division of cars, with life.
Mbh.6.112.6098 Old Virata and Drupada, those mighty car-warriors, both excited with rage, rushed to battle with Bhishma, resisting the large host of the Kauravas as they went.
Mbh.6.115.6262 Then that great bowman Bhima, and that mighty car-warrior Arjuna, began in that battle to rout the fierce host of the Kauravas.
Mbh.6.115.6282 The battle then that commenced there between the Kauravas and the sons of Pandu for the sake of Bhishma's victory or victory over Bhishma, was exceedingly terrible.
Mbh.6.116.6291 Sanjaya said, I will presently describe to thee, O Bharata, how the Kauravas fought with the Pandavas, and how that battle took place.
Mbh.6.121.6729 Beholding him coming towards them, the Kauravas surrounded prince Dussasana, desirous, O monarch, of hearing what he had to say.
Mbh.6.122.6775 Having given a pillow to thy sire thus, those rulers of men, those mighty car-warriors, viz, the Pandavas and the Kauravas, united together, once more approached the high-souled Bhishma lying on that excellent bed of his.
Mbh.7.1.11 Dhritarashtra said, After having wept for the high-souled Bhishma of terrible prowess, what, O son, did the Kauravas, urged by fate, next do?
Mbh.7.1.12 Indeed, when that high-souled and invincible hero was slain, what did the Kauravas do, sunk as they were in an ocean of grief?
Mbh.7.1.23 In consequence of thy folly and of thy son's and of the slaughter of Santanu's son, the Kauravas with all the kings seemed to be summoned by Death himself.
Mbh.7.1.29 Then the Kauravas remembered Karna, who indeed, was equal to Devavrata himself.
Mbh.7.1.52 When Bhishma, that refuge of Kauravas, was slain, could Karna, that foremost of bowmen, succeed in filling up the gap caused?
Mbh.7.3.118 Today the Kauravas, acquainted with the force of Gandiva's twang, will regard Savyasachin, like the Asuras regarding the wielder of the thunder-bolt, with terror.
Mbh.7.4.134 Be thou unto the Kauravas as Vishnu unto the dwellers of heaven.
Mbh.7.4.140 Like Duryodhana, O child, with his kinsmen, and relatives, and friends, be thou also the refuge of all the Kauravas.
Mbh.7.4.150 And all the Kauravas headed by Duryodhana were filled with joy.
Mbh.7.4.151 And beholding the mighty-armed and high-souled Karna come to the field and station himself at the head of the whole army, for battle, the Kauravas received him with loud shouts and slapping of arm-pits and leonine roars and twang of bows and diverse other kinds of noise
Mbh.7.7.248 And the Pandavas and the Kauravas, enraged with each other and skilled in smiting, began to strike each other with sharp weapons, from desire of victory.
Mbh.7.11.430 If the Kauravas happen to vanquish the Pandavas, he, of the Vrishni race, will then, for the sake of the latter, take up his mighty weapon.
Mbh.7.11.431 And that tiger among men, that mighty-armed one, slaying then all the kings in battle as also the Kauravas, will give away the whole earth to Kunti's son.
Mbh.7.12.458 Having obtained the command of the troops, that mighty car-warrior, viz, Bharadwaja's son, said these words unto thy son in the midst of all the troops, Inasmuch as, O king, thou hast honoured me with the command of the troops immediately after that bull among the Kauravas, viz, the son of the Ocean-going Ganga, take thou, O Bharata, the adequate fruit of that act of thine.
Mbh.7.16.716 Even thus did the heroic Kauravas and the Pandavas, excited with rage, fight, eyeing one another furiously and having incurred one another's animosity for past offences.
Mbh.7.22.1049 Sanjaya said, Beholding the Panchalas, the Pandavas, the Matsyas, the Srinjayas, the Chedis, the Kalikeyas, thus routed after being broken in battle by Drona with his shafts, beholding them thus driven from the field by those showers of fleet arrows shot from Drona's, bow, like vessels sent adrift by the awful waves of the tempest-tossed ocean, the Kauravas with many leonine shouts and with the noise of diverse instruments, began to assail the cars and elephants and foot-soldiers of that hostile host from all sides.
Mbh.7.22.1056 Checked by the Kauravas as also by the high-souled Drona, they are huddling close to one another like a herd of elephants in the midst of a conflagration.
Mbh.7.24.1243 Indeed, as the wind, when it riseth, driveth away gathering masses of clouds, so did that son of Pavana rout that elephant force of the Kauravas.
Mbh.7.26.1363 Like a fire consuming heaps of straw as it advances, Dhananjaya advanced, scorching all the mighty car-warriors among the Kauravas by means of his arrows.
Mbh.7.30.1607 Deprived of their cars and filled with wonder, almost all the Kauravas, turning away from the field, uttered cries of Oh and Alas and called upon Karna for protection.
Mbh.7.34.1766 the Kauravas, headed by Drona, advanced against him, as, indeed, the Pandavas followed him behind.
Mbh.7.36.1854 Sanjaya said, Hear, O king, of the splendid prowess in battle of youthful Abhimanyu while engaged in breaking the car-ranks of the Kauravas, protected by the son of Bharadwaja himself'
Mbh.7.49.2300 Enraged at the slaughter of his son, Partha will exterminate the Kauravas.
Mbh.7.73.3192 O thou of mighty arms, an uproarious din then arose amongst the Kauravas, of their elephants and steeds and infantry.
Mbh.7.83.3646 Knowing, as they did, the achievements of Savyasachin, O tell me, how the Kauravas, could, having perpetrated such a wrong, remain fearlessly.
Mbh.7.84.3740 Who else, indeed, save the Kauravas, would venture to fight with that force which is protected by Krishna and Arjuna, by Satyaki and Vrikodara?
Mbh.7.84.3741 Them that have Arjuna for their warrior, them that have Janardana for their counsellor, them that have Satyaki and Vrikodara for their protectors, what mortal bowman is there that would dare fight with, save the Kauravas and those that are following their lead?
Mbh.7.84.3742 All that is capable of being achieved by friendly kings endued with heroism and observant of the duties of Kshatriyas, all that is being done by the warriors on the Kauravas side.
Mbh.7.85.3782 Beholding Drona's car which was graced with a beautiful standard and had red sacrificial altar and a black deer-skin, the Kauravas were filled with delight.
Mbh.7.94.4302 SECTION XCVI Sanjaya said, When that fierce battle, causing the hair to stand on end, commenced, the Pandavas rushed against the Kauravas who had been divided into three bodies.
Mbh.7.96.4433 Beholding him, the Kauravas were filled with fright.
Mbh.7.97.4480 The Kauravas, O king, applauded the highly wonderful prowess of Partha as also of Vasudeva, saying, What more wonderful incident hath ever taken place in this world, or will ever take place than this, viz, that Partha and Govinda, in course of battle, have unyoked their steeds?
Mbh.7.97.4493 Seeing them gone away, other warriors said, Ye Kauravas, speed ye for the slaughter of Krishna and the diadem-decked Arjuna.
Mbh.7.99.4603 Seeing them thus cheerful, all the Kauravas became hopeless of thy son's life.
Mbh.7.99.4604 Indeed, all the Kauravas, and many even amongst the enemy, became possessed with grief, and regarded thy son as a libation already poured into the mouth of the sacred fire.
Mbh.7.106.4959 Hearing that noise the Kauravas uttered loud shouts in reply, filling the whole earth with its echoes
Mbh.7.107.5003 The royal son of Pandu repeatedly swooned, and thought, Without doubt, all is not well with Partha, since that prince of conchs Panchajanya is yielding such blasts and since the Kauravas also, filled with joy, are incessantly uttering such shouts'
Mbh.7.107.5030 Becoming my ally, Yuyudhana will crush the Kauravas.
Mbh.7.107.5040 The other great car-warriors of Kauravas have, before that followed Arjuna.
Mbh.7.111.5394 After that foremost of car-warriors among the Sinis, had entered my host, and after he had passed through the division of the Bhojas, what did the Kauravas do?
Mbh.7.116.5661 The Kauravas, with Suyodhana at their head, will today behold my prowess, when this division of Mlecchas, of shaved heads, will have been exterminated and the whole Kaurava army put to the greatest distress.
Mbh.7.116.5665 The Kauravas will today behold the bow in my hands to resemble a circle of fire when, light-handed, I will stretch the bowstring for shooting my host of shafts.
Mbh.7.116.5670 The Kauravas will know today the measure of my might and energy, and my gratefulness to the Pandavas'
Mbh.7.118.5769 The Kauravas also are all unacquainted with this mode of battle.
Mbh.7.121.5946 The warriors, O king, thus urged by Bhimasena and the prince of the Panchalas, smothered the Kauravas, becoming reckless of their very lives.
Mbh.7.124.6219 The son of Kunti, however, pursued that large force of thy sons, and began, O king, to pierce the Kauravas from every side.
Mbh.7.125.6265 He who had vanquished in Matsya's city all the Kauravas assembled together for seizing Virata's kine, that Partha, by good luck, liveth still.
Mbh.7.125.6278 Meanwhile, the battle between the Pandavas and the Kauravas raged furiously
Mbh.7.127.6348 Truly, there where, O sire, the Kauravas were congregated, they were not dice but terrible arrows capable of mangling your bodies.
Mbh.7.128.6410 Then mighty Bhima, that scorcher of foes, that wrathful son of Pandu, having slain numerous Kauravas, shot diverse showers of fierce shafts at Karna, O sire!
Mbh.7.129.6454 Then that chastiser of foes, viz, Bhima recollecting all the woes suffered by him on the occasion of the match at dice, and during his exile in the woods and residence in Virata's city, and bearing in mind the robbing of their kingdom swelling with prosperity and gems, by thy sons, and the numerous other wrongs inflicted on the Pandavas by thee and the Suta's son and remembering also the fact that thou hadst conspired to burn innocent Kunti with her sons, and calling to his memory the sufferings of Krishna in the midst of the assembly at the hands of those wretches, as also the seizure of her tresses by Duhsasana, and the harsh speeches uttered, O Bharata, by Karna, to the effect, Take thou another husband, for all thy husbands are dead: the sons of Pritha have sunk into hell and are like sesamum seeds without kernel, remembering also those other words, O son of Kuru, that the Kauravas uttered in thy presence, add the fact also that thy sons had been desirous of enjoying Krishna as a slave, and those harsh words that Karna spoke to the sons of Pandu when the latter, attired in deer-skins were about to be banished to the woods, and the joy in which thy wrathful and foolish son, himself in prosperity, indulged, thinking the distressed sons of Pritha as veritable straw, the virtuous Bhima that slayer of foes, remembering these and all the woes he had suffered since his childhood, became reckless of his very life.
Mbh.7.130.6486 Hearing, however, of the repeated defeat in battle of Karna by Bhimasena of terrible deeds, a swoon seems to come upon me, I think, the Kauravas to be already slain, in consequence of evil policy of my son.
Mbh.7.135.6722 Indeed, that host of the Sindhus, the Sauviras, and the Kauravas, afflicted with the impetuous shafts of both Karna and Bhima, was removed to a great distance.
Mbh.7.138.6921 Invincible in battle, that Satyaki, who hath no warrior amongst the Kauravas equal to him, is coming to thee, O son of Kunti!
Mbh.7.138.6925 Having caused a river of blood for its mire, and regarding the Kauravas as straw, Satyaki cometh towards thee'
Mbh.7.140.7103 Satyaki said, Ye sinful Kauravas, wearing the outward garment of righteousness, ye tell me, in words of virtue, that Bhurisravas should not be slain.
Mbh.7.140.7116 Sanjaya continued, After Satyaki had said these words, none amongst the Pandavas and the Kauravas, O king, said anything.
Mbh.7.142.7274 The Kauravas, however, on their costly cars, pouring showers of arrows, advanced against the son of Pandu.
Mbh.7.146.7676 O slayer of foes, it is in consequence of thy wrath that the Kauravas are being destroyed.
Mbh.7.146.7681 I regard the Kauravas to be lost with their sons, and kinsmen, when thou, O scorcher of foes, that art observant of the duties of a king, hast been angry with them'
Mbh.7.150.7847 Resolved to go to the other world, the Panchalas and the Kauravas fought with one another for admission into the swelling domains of Yama.
Mbh.7.151.7904 Fierce owls, perching on the standards of Kauravas and hooting therefrom, foreboded fears.
Mbh.7.155.8298 In Virata's city also, all the Kauravas, united together, including thyself and thy younger brother were vanquished by Partha in battle.
Mbh.7.155.8360 Thou desirest, O Brahmana, to applaud the Pandavas, for frightening all the troops and the Kauravas, O thou of wretched understanding!
Mbh.7.157.8576 Applauded by all the Kauravas after having defeated thousands of foes in battle, the valiant son of Drona beamed forth in beauty, like the chief of the celestials himself after vanquishing his foes
Mbh.7.161.8753 Arjuna began to afflict the Kauravas, and the Kauravas began to afflict Arjuna, with diverse kinds of weapons.
Mbh.7.163.8864 Then Bhima, regarding Suyodhana to have been slain amid the darkness of that night, uttered a loud leonine roar challenging the Kauravas.
Mbh.7.168.9082 Hearing then the rattle of Arjuna's car as also that twang of Gandiva, the Suta's son, O king, said these words unto Duryodhana, Slaughtering our entire army and the foremost of heroic warriors and many mighty bowmen among the Kauravas, Arjuna is loudly twanging his bow.
Mbh.7.170.9176 In that impervious wall of Kauravas around the grandson of Sini, these also stationed themselves, encompassing him.
Mbh.7.170.9203 And as the Pandavas, O king, and the Kauravas, contended with each other in battle, the darkness of night thickened around them
Mbh.7.173.9415 Then Bhimasena's son, endued with great prowess of illusion, O foremost of the Kurus, assumed a fierce from, aided by those powers, began to stupefy the Kauravas, O Bharata!
Mbh.7.175.9504 SECTION CLXXVII Sanjaya said, Beholding Alayudha of terrible deeds come to battle, all the Kauravas became filled with delight.
Mbh.7.177.9623 Sanjaya said, Seeing the Rakshasa disappear, all the Kauravas loudly said, Appearing next, the Rakshasa, fighting deceitfully, will certainly slay Karna'
Mbh.7.177.9649 During that cruel carnage of Kuru heroes, brought on by Death himself, during that extermination of Kshatriyas the Kaurava warriors suddenly broke and fled with speed, crying aloud, Fly, ye Kauravas!
Mbh.7.177.9653 During that fierce uproar and rout and extermination of the Kauravas, the camps losing their distinctive features, the parties could not be distinguished from each other.
Mbh.7.177.9663 Then jumping down from his steedless car and seeing the Kauravas flying away, and beholding his own celestial weapon baffled by the Rakshasa illusion, Karna, without losing his senses, turned his mind inwards and began to reflect on what he should next do.
Mbh.7.177.9664 At that time all the Kauravas, beholding Karna and that terrible illusion of the Rakshasa cried out saying, O Karna, slay the Rakshasa soon with thy dart.
Mbh.7.177.9665 These Kauravas and the Dhartarashtras are on the point of being annihilated.
Mbh.7.177.9670 O Karna, let not these great warriors, the Kauravas, these princes that resemble Indra himself, be all destroyed in this nocturnal battle'
Mbh.7.177.9684 The Kauravas indeed, beholding the illusion of the Rakshasa destroyed and the Rakshasa himself slain uttered loud shouts of joy.
Mbh.7.179.9732 They had always been hostile to us, and, accordingly, they would all have adopted the side of the Kauravas.
Mbh.7.179.9777 Having achieved their objects, the Kauravas are destroying thy host.
Mbh.7.181.9883 Behold, O thou of Vrishni's race, our troops afflicted and routed by the Kauravas.
Mbh.7.181.9886 Disregarding the might of Bhimasena's son, as also the variety of weapon that Partha bears, the Kauravas are putting forth their prowess, Yonder, Drona and Karna and king Suyodhana, having slain the Rakshasa in battle, are uttering loud roars.
Mbh.7.181.9926 Uniting with thy brothers and all the illustrious kings of the host, fight with the Kauravas in battle, O Bharata!
Mbh.7.185.10170 Neither the Kauravas, nor the Panchalas, nor the Pandavas, could be distinguished, nor the points of the compass, nor the welkin, nor the earth, nor even land nor uneven land.
Mbh.7.185.10174 Then Duryodhana, Karna, Drona and Duhsasana, these four Kauravas warriors engaged in battle with four of the Pandava warriors, Duryodhana and his brothers, encountered the twins Nakula and Sahadeva.
Mbh.7.187.10335 Thus addressed, Partha suddenly rushed against the Kauravas, while Drona rushed against the Panchalas headed by Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.7.191.10584 Beholding the fall of Bharadwaja's son, which was like unto the dropping of the sun down upon the earth, or the drying up of the ocean, or the transplantation of Meru, or the defeat of Vasava, beholding that act, incapable of being quietly witnessed, the Kauravas, O king, fled away in fear, terror lending them greater speed.
Mbh.7.191.10597 Some urging their sires on, some their brothers, some their maternal uncles, some their sons, some their friends, the Kauravas fled away.
Mbh.7.191.10647 Though thus forbidden by the Kauravas as also by Arjuna, Dhrishtadyumna killed thy father.
Mbh.7.194.10750 Dhritarashtra said, Tell me, O Sanjaya, what counsel was adopted by the Pandavas for the protection of Dhrishtadyumna when they saw the Kauravas once more advance to battle, rallied by Drona's son who was scorched by grief and unable to brook the slaughter of his sire'
Mbh.7.194.10770 It is evident that upon the fall of Drona, Vasava himself is approaching against us for the sake of the Kauravas.
Mbh.7.194.10773 Arjuna said, He, relying upon whose energy the Kauravas, having addressed themselves to the accomplishment of fierce feats, are blowing their conchs and staying with patience, he about whom thou hast thy doubts.
Mbh.7.195.10852 I do not think it at all wonderful that Drona's son, urging the Kauravas to battle, will cause them to be slain, unable to protect them himself.
Mbh.7.196.10957 Fight now with the Kauravas, without returning to the home of thy fathers'
Mbh.7.196.10977 Yonder come the Kauravas.
Mbh.7.197.10999 The terrified Kauravas had their fears dispelled by Drona's son.
Mbh.7.197.11031 In those places where you will fight for quelling the force of this weapon the Kauravas will become more powerful than you.
Mbh.7.198.11207 Only Vibhatsu, supported by the Somakas and the Matsyas, shot his arrows at the Kauravas and checked their onset
Mbh.7.198.11256 Both hosts thought that Kesava and Arjuna had perished Beholding Kesava and Arjuna, therefore freed from darkness and the energy of that weapon and seeing that reappear so quickly, the Pandavas were filled with joy, and the Kauravas with wonder.
Mbh.8.2.50 Sanjaya said, O sire, hearing all that has happened unto the Kauravas through thy fault, thou shouldst not feel any anguish!
Mbh.8.5.117 The kinsman of the Kauravas, the son of Somadatta, the brave and celebrated Bhurishrava, O king, hath been slain by Satyaki in battle.
Mbh.8.8.251 The ruler of Magadha, having by conciliation and honours obtained Karna for a friend, had challenged all the Kshatriyas of the world, except the Kauravas and the Yadavas, to battle.
Mbh.8.9.347 Tell me, O Sanjaya, all that occurred in the battle between the brave warriors of the Kauravas and their foes, after the death of Drona!
Mbh.8.10.349 SECTION Sanjaya said, After the fall of the mighty bowman Drona on that day, O Bharata, and after the purpose had been baffled of that mighty car-warriors, viz, the son of Drona, and after the vasty army, O monarch, of the Kauravas had fled away, Partha, having arrayed his own troops, stayed on the field with his brothers.
Mbh.8.10.353 Having caused the withdrawal of their troops, and having entered their own encampment, the Kauravas held with one another a consultation about their own welfare, seated like the celestials on costly couches overlaid with rich coverlets, and on excellent seats and luxurious beds.
Mbh.8.11.419 Beholding the mighty bowman Karna, that foremost of car-warriors, seated on his car, difficult of approach and resembling the risen Sun that destroys the gloom, none amongst the Kauravas, O tiger among men, recked, O sire, the loss of Bhishma or Drona or other men!
Mbh.8.11.420 Speeding the warriors, O sire, with the blasts of his conch, Karna caused the vast army of the Kauravas to be drawn out.
Mbh.8.24.972 It is through thy faults that the Kauravas are being thinned, encountering one another.
Mbh.8.27.1148 Against him rushed the Trigartas, the Sivis, the Kauravas, the Salwas, the samsaptakas, and that force which consisted of the Narayanas.
Mbh.8.28.1195 There where the Pancalas engaged the Kauravas, in battle, men closed with men, and elephants with foremost of elephants.
Mbh.8.29.1241 From what thou hast said unto me, from the manner in which the battle has been fought, it is my certain conviction, O Suta, that the Kauravas are no more.
Mbh.8.30.1324 The mighty bowmen amongst the Kauravas, fearing a night-battle, O Bharata, then retired from the field, accompanied by all their combatants.
Mbh.8.30.1325 Upon the retirement of the Kauravas, O king, at the close of the day, the Parthas, cheerful at having obtained the victory, also retired to their own encampment, jeering at their enemies by producing diverse kinds of sounds with their musical instruments, and applauding Acyuta and Arjuna.
Mbh.8.31.1341 Sanjaya said, Struck and wounded and overthrown from their vehicles and divested of armour and deprived of weapons and their beasts slain, with plaintive voices and burning with grief and vanquished by their foes, the vain Kauravas, entering their tents once more took counsel of one another.
Mbh.8.37.1931 SECTION Sanjaya said, Beholding the mighty Karna take up his station from desire of battle, the Kauravas, filled with delight, uttered loud shouts from every side.
Mbh.8.37.1944 The Kauravas regarded the Pandavas to have been already vanquished.
Mbh.8.37.1983 On the occasion also of the seizure of Virata's kine, the Kauravas, swelling with numbers in respect of both men and animals, and having the preceptor and the preceptor's son and Bhishma amongst them, were vanquished by that foremost of men.
Mbh.8.40.2131 Prepared for rescuing the Kauravas and slaying our foes, know that I am now determined to imitate the excellent behaviour of Pururavas.
Mbh.8.41.2229 Why didst thou not slay Partha at Virata's city when thou hadst the advantage of being protected by Drona and Drona's son and Kripa and Bhishma and the other Kauravas?
Mbh.8.45.2432 The Kauravas with the Pancalas, the Salwas, the Matsyas, the Naimishas, the Koshalas, the Kasapaundras, the Kalingas, the Magadhas, and the Cedis who are all highly blessed, know what the eternal religion is.
Mbh.8.45.2458 The Pancalas observe the duties enjoined in the Vedas; the Kauravas observe truth; the Matsyas and the Surasenas perform sacrifices, the Easterners follow the practices of the Shudras; the Southerners are fallen; the Vahikas are thieves; the Saurashtras are bastards.
Mbh.8.45.2461 Commencing with the Pancalas, the Kauravas, the Naimishas, the Matsyas, all these, know what religion is.
Mbh.8.50.2812 Then one of the wings of the army and its further wing, and Shakuni, the son of Subala, and the Kauravas well-armed turned against Bhimasena in that battle.
Mbh.8.51.2893 The mighty Bhima also, shrouding that mighty car-warrior with dense arrowy downpours in the very sight of the Kauravas, uttered a loud shout.
Mbh.8.51.2935 Beholding the son of Subala, and Kritavarma, and Drona's son, and Adhiratha's son, and Kripa, engaged with the Pandavas, the Kauravas rallied and came back to the fight.
Mbh.8.51.2947 Then the Pandavas, O king, and the Kauravas also, mighty car-warriors all, striking one another, began to mangle one another with their keen shafts
Mbh.8.54.3090 The mighty Dhrishtadyumna, having vanquished his mighty antagonist, began then to resist the Kauravas with shafts, without losing a moment.
Mbh.8.55.3132 O thou of mighty arms, I will vanquish the Kauravas in battle.
Mbh.8.56.3146 Indeed, the three mighty car-warriors viz, Partha and Vrikodara and Karna, began to exterminate the samsaptakas, the Kauravas, and the Pancalas, respectively.
Mbh.8.56.3233 Hearing these words of his, Govinda smiled, and addressing Arjuna, said, Slay the Kauravas, O son of Pandu, without delay
Mbh.8.58.3367 Behold, O Arjuna, Karna is trying to rally the flying Kauravas.
Mbh.8.60.3481 There the Kauravas, beholding the prowess of Karna, are roaring and inspiring the Pandus and the Srinjayas with fear on every side.
Mbh.8.60.3482 There, Karna himself, terrifying the Pandus with his whole soul, in dreadful battle, is addressing all the troops, O giver of honours, saying, Blessed be ye, advance, ye Kauravas and rush with such speed that no Srinjaya may, in this battle escape with life.
Mbh.8.60.3498 When encountering each other in battle, O Partha, like a celestial and a Danava in the great battle between the gods and the Asuras, let all the Kauravas behold thy prowess.
Mbh.8.60.3511 There, the Kauravas are being slaughtered with keen shafts by Bhimasena, O son of Kunti, and the high-souled Pancalas.
Mbh.8.60.3526 Like swans of great speed leaving the Manasa lake and rushing into the Ganga, the Pancalas are rushing against the Kauravas, and every part of the vast Dhartarashtra force is assailed by them.
Mbh.8.61.3548 SECTION Dhritarashtra said, When Bhima and Pandu's son Yudhishthira were engaged in battle, when my troops were being slaughtered by the Pandus and the Srinjayas, when, indeed, my vast army being broken and routed repeatedly became cheerless, tell me, O Sanjaya, what the Kauravas did'
Mbh.8.61.3559 Satyaki proceeded against Shakuni, and the sons of Draupadi against the other Kauravas.
Mbh.8.61.3588 After Karna had gone away, Nakula proceeded against the Kauravas.
Mbh.8.66.3874 Thou knowest the nature of the battle that took place when the Srinjayas and the Kauravas encountered each other, the battle in which I was brought to that distressful plight.
Mbh.8.66.3881 That Suta's son of wicked soul, that Karna of great wrath, who had formerly, in the presence of the Kauravas and in the midst of the assembly called us sesame seeds without kernel, encountering that Karna in battle, hast thou slain him today?
Mbh.8.69.4077 That Karna being slain, the Kauravas would necessarily be vanquished.
Mbh.8.70.4133 It was thou that didst that cruel act in consequence of which the Kauravas have become offenders and are being destroyed.
Mbh.8.73.4349 The Kauravas also, O Partha, were numerous at first, teeming with elephants and steeds.
Mbh.8.73.4353 Who is there that can vanquish the assembled Kauravas in battle?
Mbh.8.73.4371 Even thus, O Partha, during the progress of this awful battle, the Kauravas, with their steeds and carwarriors and elephants, encountering Bhimasena and thee, O son of Pandu, have from hence repaired to the region of Death.
Mbh.8.74.4526 Today let all behold the wrathful Dhananjaya fight with the Kauravas in battle and slay the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.76.4597 Today, let all the Kauravas fall in battle or let all the world applaud me, beginning with the feats of my earliest years.
Mbh.8.76.4608 Indeed, all the Kauravas, having lost their sense, are flying away, like elephants filled with panic at a forest conflagration, and uttering cries of woe.
Mbh.8.79.4879 Like men with diseased eyes that are unable to gaze at the sun, the Kauravas on that occasion could not gaze at Jaya who seemed to be possessed of the energy of the all-destroying Sun that rises at the end of the Yuga, having arrows for his rays, and Gandiva for his beautiful circular disc.
Mbh.8.80.4922 Indeed, the Kauravas, burnt by Savyasaci, dispersed on all sides, like animals in the great forest frightened at a forest conflagration.
Mbh.8.80.4935 Having slain those ten Kauravas cased in golden mail, with ten broad-headed shafts endued with great, impetuosity and equipped with wings of gold that slayer of foes, Arjuna continued to proceed
Mbh.8.81.4942 After this, many Kauravas, with cars and elephants and steeds, fearlessly advanced against that foremost one of Kuru's race, that chief of the Bharatas, Phalguna.
Mbh.8.81.4969 The son of Pandu then, excited with rage, and resembling an infuriated elephant, penetrated into the elephant division of the Kauravas, like a Makara entering the ocean.
Mbh.8.81.4981 Beholding Savyasaci putting forth his valour on that occasion, the Kauravas became hopeless of Karna's life.
Mbh.8.81.4982 Regarding the touch of Arjuna's shafts to be unbearable, the Kauravas, vanquished by the wielder of Gandiva, fled from the field.
Mbh.8.81.4987 The Kauravas, O monarch, like snakes without poison, took Karna's shelter, moved by the fear of the wielder of Gandiva.
Mbh.8.83.5098 Striking the head of that wicked-souled one with my foot in the presence of the Kauravas, I shall obtain peace
Mbh.8.85.5189 Beholding that feat of Vrishasena, that achiever of superhuman feats, the Kauravas became filled with joy and applauded him greatly.
Mbh.8.87.5252 The Kauravas beat their musical instruments and blew their numerous conchs for gladdening Karna.
Mbh.8.89.5522 Markest thou not that the Kauravas, standing behind Karna, are even now shouting in joy?
Mbh.8.89.5555 Then the Kauravas, thus slaughtered by Dhananjaya, loudly addressed Adhitratha's son, saying, Shoot thy arrows and slay the son of Pandu.
Mbh.8.89.5574 And once more many foremost of combatants among the Pancalas and many such among the Kauravas fell down after this, slain by Karna and Dhananjaya.
Mbh.8.89.5578 Then quickly bending his bow-string and baffling all those shafts of Adhiratha's son, Partha, filled with rage in consequence of his limbs having been mangled with Karna's arrows, assailed the Kauravas.
Mbh.8.89.5597 Then thy sons and the Kauravas that were still alive fled away, deserting Karna, and abandoning their dying and wounded, and their wailing sons and sires.
Mbh.8.90.5599 SECTION Sanjaya said, Flying away in consequence of the falling of Arjuna's arrows, the broken divisions of the Kauravas, staying at a distance, continued to gaze at Arjuna's weapon swelling with energy and careering around with the effulgence of lightning.
Mbh.8.90.5609 All the Kauravas and the Somakas then beheld a wide-spread arrowy net.
Mbh.8.90.5624 Beholding that wide-spread expanse of arrows, all the Kauravas and the Somakas became filled with fear.
Mbh.8.91.5879 After the fall of Karna, the Kauravas, deeply pierced with shafts in that battle, and afflicted with fear, fled away from the field, frequently casting their eyes on that lofty standard of Arjuna that blazed with splendour.
Mbh.8.92.5885 Others amongst the Kauravas, hearing that Karna of mighty energy had been slain by Dhananjaya, his armour, ornaments, robes, and weapons having all been displaced, fled in fear like a herd of kine afflicted with exceeding fear at losing its bull.
Mbh.8.93.5911 After the slaughter of the Suta's son, O king, the Kauravas, terrified and mangled with shafts, masterless and desirous of protection, became like a herd of elephants afflicted by lions.
Mbh.8.93.5917 thought every one among the Kauravas who became pale with fear and fell down as they fled.
Mbh.8.93.5942 Possessed of great energy, Dhananjaya proceeded against the remnant of the car-force of the Kauravas.
Mbh.8.93.5950 Beholding Dhrishtadyumna's car which had steeds white as pigeons yoked unto it and whose lofty standard was made of the trunk of a Kovidara, the Kauravas fled away in great fear.
Mbh.8.93.5981 There is no more blessed path for heaven, ye Kauravas, than the duty of battle.
Mbh.8.94.6015 At that terrible hour when everything around looked so resplendent, the Kauravas, all of whom had resolved to repair to the other world, their features incapable of recognition owing to the blood that covered them, beholding the earth, that was drenched with the blood flowing from the bodies of men and steeds and elephants, looking like a courtesan attired in crimson robes and floral garlands and ornaments of gold, were unable, O king, to stand there!
Mbh.8.94.6045 He, relying upon whom thy son had provoked hostilities, thus went to heaven, taking away with him the hope of victory, the happiness, and the armour of the Kauravas.
Mbh.8.94.6066 At the sound of the heroic Madhava's conch as also at that of Arjuna's, all the Kauravas, O best of kings, became filled with fright.
Mbh.8.94.6068 As soon as the Kauravas heard the blare of those conchs that were thus being blown, all of them left the field with great speed, deserting the ruler of the Madras and the chief of the Bharatas, O Bharata, viz, Duryodhana.
Mbh.8.95.6074 SECTION Sanjaya said, Upon the fall of Karna otherwise called Vaikartana, the Kauravas, afflicted with fear, fled away on all sides, casting their eyes on empty space.
Mbh.8.95.6086 Indeed seeing Karna overthrown, all the Kauravas fled away quickly, afflicted and anxious with fear, trembling, and with voices choked with tears.
Mbh.8.95.6089 Upon the fall of Karna, O monarch, the Kauravas became hopeless of life, kingdom, wives, and wealth.
Mbh.9.1.4 Janamejaya said, After Karna had thus been slain in battle by Savyasaci, what did the small unslaughtered remnant of the Kauravas do, O regenerate one?
Mbh.9.1.47 In consequence of the Pandavas and the Kauravas having encountered each other, the world, stupefied by Time, now consists of only women.
Mbh.9.3.186 Then Dhananjaya, O king, penetrated into the midst of the car-division of the Kauravas, stretching his bow Gandiva celebrated over the three worlds.
Mbh.9.3.219 You Kauravas, there is not a better path to heaven than the duty of battle.
Mbh.9.5.367 Having groomed their animals, the Kauravas, delighting at the prospect of battle, took up their quarters for the night at a spot a little less than two Yojanas distant from the field.
Mbh.9.7.425 Surpassing Drona and Bhishma and the Suta's son, O lord, in battle, I will career on the field, O Kauravas, for doing what is agreeable to thee'
Mbh.9.8.467 Having made the ruler of the Madras their leader, the great car-warriors of the Kauravas, distributing their troops, stood in divisions.
Mbh.9.8.472 Similarly, all the Pandavas, having arrayed their troops in great battle, proceeded against the Kauravas, O king, for fighting with them on every side.
Mbh.9.10.570 Beholding the ruler of the Madras standing for battle on the field, the Kauravas returned, making death their goal.
Mbh.9.11.658 Then, O king, the Kauravas, mustering all their divisions, rushed against the Pandava army.
