MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.2.416 On the next morning Sanjaya spoke, in the court of the King, of the identity of Vasudeva and Arjuna.
Mbh.1.3.793 Thus addressed, his preceptress replied, Go unto King Paushya and beg of him the pair of ear-rings worn by his Queen, and bring them hither.
Mbh.1.3.803 And Utanka signified his assent and ate of the dung and drank of the urine of that bull, and rose respectfully, and washing his hands and mouth went to where King Paushya was.
Mbh.1.3.806 And King Paushya, having returned Utanka's salutations, said, Sir, what shall I do for thee'
Mbh.1.3.809 King Paushya replied, Go, Utanka, into the female apartments where the Queen is and demand them of her'
Mbh.1.3.818 King Paushya then said, Here is a transgression, purification is not properly effected by one in a standing posture, not by one while he is going along'
Mbh.1.3.829 And she said, These ear-rings are very much sought after by Takshaka, the King of the serpents.
Mbh.1.3.875 And Utanka then glorified the serpents by the following slokas: Ye Serpents, subjects of King Airavata, splendid in battle and showering weapons in the field like lightning-charged clouds driven by the winds!
Mbh.1.3.916 And Utanka replied to his preceptor, Sir, in the execution of this my business obstruction was offered by Takshaka, the King of serpents.
Mbh.1.3.937 And Utanka then waited upon King Janamejaya who had some time before returned victorious from Takshashila.
Mbh.1.3.944 The foremost of Brahmanas and distinguished beyond all for good deeds, thus addressed by the excellent monarch of large heart, replied unto him, O King!
Mbh.1.3.946 O thou King of kings!
Mbh.1.3.950 The wicked Takshaka, vilest of the serpent race, intoxicated with power committed an unnecessary act when he bit the King, that god-like father, the protector of the race of royal saints.
Mbh.1.3.953 O King!
Mbh.1.4.964 Having studied Puranas with meticulous devotion and thus being thoroughly acquainted with them, he addressed them with joined hands thus, I have graphically described to you the history of Utanka which is one of the causes of King Janamejaya's Snake-sacrifice.
Mbh.1.8.1111 At that time, O Brahmana sage, Viswavasu, the King of the Gandharvas, it is said, had intimacy with Menaka, the celestial dancing-girl.
Mbh.1.41.2155 And Krisa answered, King Parikshit, the son of Abhimanyu, while hunting, had wounded a fleet stag with an arrow and chased it alone.
Mbh.1.50.2588 Sauti continued, King Janamejaya, that chastiser of enemies, then spake upto all his ministers.
Mbh.1.50.2604 Sauti continued, King Janamejaya, having listened to the words of his ministers, was sorely afflicted with grief, and began to weep.
Mbh.1.51.2619 SECTION LI Astika Parva continued Sauti said, King Janamejaya having said so, his ministers expressed their approbation.
Mbh.1.58.2830 King Janamejaya thereupon became curious, for Takshaka, afflicted with fear, did not at once fall into the fire although libations were poured in proper form into the blazing sacrificial Agni in his name'
Mbh.1.63.3057 King Vasu was thus blessed by the gratified Maghavat, the high-souled chief of the gods.
Mbh.1.73.3817 SECTION LXXIII Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana continued, King Dushmanta, hearing all this, said, Well-spoken, O princess, this that thou hast said!
Mbh.1.78.4411 Vaisampayana continued, King Yayati, learning that she was a Brahmana's daughter, raised her from that well by catching hold of her right hand.
Mbh.1.86.4813 SECTION LXXXVI Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, King Yayati, the son of Nahusha, having thus installed his dear son on the throne, became exceedingly happy, and entered into the woods to lead the life of a hermit.
Mbh.1.86.4826 King Yayati, the son of Nahusha, having installed his youngest son, Puru, on the throne after casting his sons with Yadu for their eldest amongst the Mlechchhas, entered the forest to lead the life of a hermit.
Mbh.1.95.5302 King Dhritarashtra had a hundred sons by his wife, Gandhari in consequence of the boon granted by Dwaipayana.
Mbh.1.96.5381 Vaisampayana continued, King Mahabhisha then recollecting all the monarchs and ascetics on earth, wished to be born as son to Pratipa of great prowess.
Mbh.1.100.5558 All the kings of the earth, beholding him devoted to virtue, bestowed upon that foremost of virtuous men the title of King of kings.
Mbh.1.100.5589 King Santanu, wondering much at what he saw and imagining the youth to be his own son then addressed Ganga and said, Show me that child'
Mbh.1.110.6098 King Suvala at first hesitated on account of the blindness of the bridegroom, but taking into consideration the blood of the Kurus, their fame and behaviour, he gave his virtuous daughter unto Dhritarashtra and the chaste Gandhari hearing that Dhritarashtra was blind and that her parents had consented to marry her to him, from love and respect for her future husband, blindfolded her own eyes.
Mbh.1.113.6183 Then selecting on auspicious day and moment as indicated by the wise for the ceremony, King Pandu was duly united with Madri.
Mbh.1.121.6495 King Vyushitaswa was seldom separated from his wife.
Mbh.1.144.7764 SECTION CXLIV Jatugriha Parva continued Vaisampayana continued, King Dhritarashtra whose knowledge only was his eyes, on hearing these words of his son and recollecting everything that Kanika had, said unto him, became afflicted with sorrow, and his mind also thereupon began to waver.
Mbh.1.147.7832 And some amongst the citizens and the country people, who followed the Pandavas, afflicted beyond measure at beholding the sons of Pandu in such distress, began to say aloud, King Dhritarashtra of wicked soul seeth no things with the same eye.
Mbh.1.152.7979 King Dhritarashtra, on hearing the evil news of the death of the Pandavas, wept in great sorrow.
Mbh.1.152.7980 And he said, King Pandu, my brother of great fame, hath, indeed, died today when those heroic sons of his together with their mother have been burnt to death.
Mbh.1.169.8623 SECTION CLXIX Chaitraratha Parva continued The Brahmana continued, King Drupada after this, distressed at heart, wandered among many asylums of Brahmanas in search of superior Brahmanas well-skilled in sacrificial rites.
Mbh.1.173.8886 King Samvarana thus addressed that damsel in the forest, who however, spoke not a word unto the monarch burning with desire.
Mbh.1.175.8937 King Samvarana, that smiter of all foes, thought also of his chief priest Vasishtha, that best of Rishis.
Mbh.1.175.8953 King Samvarana, possessed by love and with his heart fixed on Tapati, beholding that celestial maiden of sweet smiles led by Vasishtha, became exceedingly glad.
Mbh.1.175.8995 King Samvarana begot upon Tapati a son named Kuru, who was the foremost of ascetics.
Mbh.1.188.9428 And the Kshatriyas assembled in that amphitheatre, each desirous of winning the daughter of Drupada, looked like the celestial of old standing round Uma, the daughter of the King of mountains.
Mbh.1.194.9671 King Pandu was the dear friend of Drupada and was regarded by him as his counterself.
Mbh.1.194.9683 King Drupada, therefore, hath nothing now to say in regard to the race, tribe, family and disposition of him who hath performed that feat.
Mbh.1.195.9693 SECTION CLXLVI Vaivahika Parva continued Vaisampayana continued, The messenger said, King Drupada hath, in view of his daughter's nuptials prepared a good feast for the bride-groom's party.
Mbh.1.200.9938 The sons of Pandu endued with great strength, after their wedding were over, and after they had obtained Krishna like unto a second Sri along with great wealth, passed their days in joy and happiness, like so many Indras, in the capital of the king of the Panchalas SECTION CCI Vaivahika Parva continued Vaisampayana said, King Drupada, after his alliance with the Pandavas, had all his fears dispelled.
Mbh.1.207.10211 King Dhritarashtra, with ministers, sons, and friends, hath with a joyous heart, O king, repeatedly enquired after thy welfare.
Mbh.1.208.10239 King Dhritarashtra, hearing that those heroes had neared the capital sent out the Kauravas to receive them.
Mbh.1.222.10820 King Yudhishthira, hearing that Madhava had arrived, sent the twins out to receive him.
Mbh.1.224.10973 King Swetaki stood for six months, rapt in attention, with arms upraised and steadfast eyes, like the trunk of a tree or a column rooted to the ground.
Mbh.1.224.10981 King Swetaki, thus addressed by Rudra, did all that he was directed to do by the wielder of the trident.
Mbh.2.2.54 King Yudhishthira the just, the son of Pandu, having raised Krishna endued with eyes like lotus-petals and the foremost of the Yadava race, gave him leave, saying, Good bye'
Mbh.2.3.71 There is also, I think, O thou of the Kuru race, a fierce club placed in the lake Vindu by the King of the Danavas after slaughtering therewith all his foes in battle.
Mbh.2.4.120 And so also numerous principal Kshatriyas, such as the illustrious and virtuous Mujaketu, Vivarddhana, Sangramjit, Durmukha, the powerful Ugrasena; Kakshasena, the lord of the Earth, Kshemaka the invincible; Kamatha, the king of Kamvoja, and the mighty Kampana who alone made the Yavanas to ever tremble at his name just as the god that wieldeth the thunder-bolt maketh those Asuras, the Kalakeyas, tremble before him; Jatasura, and the king of the Madrakas, Kunti, Pulinda the king of the Kiratas, and the kings of Anga and Vanga, and Pandrya, and the king of Udhara, and Andhaka; Sumitra, and Saivya that slayer of foes; Sumanas, the king of the Kiratas, and Chanur the King of the Yavanas, Devarata, Bhoja, and the so called Bhimaratha, Srutayudha, the king of Kalinga, Jayasena the king of Magadha; and Sukarman, and Chekitana, and Puru that slayer of foes; Ketumata, Vasudana, and Vaideha and Kritakshana: Sudharman, Aniruddha, Srutayu endued with great strength; the invincible Anuparaja, the handsome Karmajit; Sisupala with his son, the king of Karusha; and the invincible youths of the Vrishni race, all equal in beauty unto the celestials, viz, Ahuka, Viprithu, Sada, Sarana, Akrura, Kritavarman, and Satyaka, the son of Sini; and Bhismaka, Ankriti, and the powerful Dyumatsena, those chief of bowmen viz, the Kaikeyas and Yajnasena of the Somaka race; these Kshatriyas endured with great might, all well-armed and wealthy, and many others also regarded as the foremost, all waited upon Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, in that Sabha, desirous of ministering to his happiness.
Mbh.2.6.297 I shall, however, describe unto thee the rooms of the king of the departed Yama, of Varuna Neptune of great intelligence, of Indra, the King of Gods and also of him who hath his home in Kailasha Kuvera.
Mbh.2.7.330 And, O King, many Apsaras and Gandharvas, by various kinds of dances and music both instrumental and vocal, and by the practice of auspicious rites, and by the exhibition of many feats of skill, gratify the lord of the celestials, Satakratu, the illustrious slayer of Vala and Vritra.
Mbh.2.8.349 Vysawa; Saswa and Krishaswa, and king Sasavindu; Rama the son of Dasaratha, and Lakshmana, and Pratarddana; Alarka, and Kakshasena, Gaya, and Gauraswa; Rama the son of Jamadagnya, Nabhaga, and Sagara; Bhuridyumna and Mahaswa, Prithaswa, and also Janaka; king Vainya, Varisena, Purujit, and Janamejaya; Brahmadatta, and Trigarta, and king Uparichara also; Indradyumna, Bhimajanu, Gauraprishta, Nala, Gaya; Padma and Machukunda, Bhuridyumna, Prasenajit; Aristanemi, Sudymna, Prithulauswa, and Ashtaka also; a hundred kings of the Matsya race and hundred of the Vipa and a hundred of the Haya races; a hundred kings of the name of Dhritarashtra, eighty kings of the name of Janamejaya; a hundred monarchs called Brahmadatta, and a hundred kings of the name of Iri; more than two hundred Bhishmas, and also a hundred Bhimas; a hundred Prativindhyas, a hundred Nagas, and a hundred Palasas, and a hundred called Kasa and Kusa; that king of kings Santanu, and thy father Pandu, Usangava, Sata-ratha, Devaraja, Jayadratha; the intelligent royal sage Vrishadarva with his ministers; and a thousand other kings known by the name of Sasa-vindu, and who have died, having performed many grand horse-sacrifices with large presents to the Brahmanas, these holy royal sages of grand achievements and great knowledge of the Sastras, wait upon, O King, and worship the son of Vivaswat in that assembly house.
Mbh.2.10.393 Delicious and cooling breezes murmuring through forests of tall Mandaras, and bearing fragrance of extensive plantations of jasmine, as also of the lotuses on the bosom of the river Alaka and of the Nandana-gardens, always minister to the pleasure of the King of the Yakshas.
Mbh.2.12.477 The Brahmanas gratified with various kinds of food and enjoyable articles, given away unto them to the extent of their desires, and with the heaps of jewels distributed amongst them, began to say, King Harischandra is superior to all kings in energy and renown,
Mbh.2.12.487 I told him in reply, O King, I shall tell thy son all this, if I go to the world of man.
Mbh.2.13.531 Vaisampayana said, King Yudhishthira, then, that foremost of speakers, summoning together his counsellors and brothers, asked them repeatedly about the Rajasuya sacrifice.
Mbh.2.17.768 King Vrihadratha then, with his wives, bending low unto that Rishi, spoke these words choked with tears in consequence of his despair of obtaining a child,
Mbh.2.19.846 King Vrihadratha then came to feel a great distaste for worldly pleasures.
Mbh.2.19.849 Vaisampayana continued, King Vrihadratha, having lived for some time in the woods and practised ascetic penances, ascended to heaven at last with his wives.
Mbh.2.19.850 King Jarasandha, also, as uttered by Kausika, having received those numerous boons ruled his kingdom like a father.
Mbh.2.21.942 For, O King, that ever victorious monarch observed this vow which was known throughout the Worlds that as soon as he should hear of the arrival of Snataka Brahmanas at his place, should it be even at midnight, he would immediately, O Bharata, come out and grant them an audience.
Mbh.2.25.1135 Vaisampayana continued, King Yudhisthira the just, hearing these words of Dhananjaya, replied unto him in a grave and collected tone, saying, O bull of the Bharata race, set thou out, having made holy Brahmanas utter benedictions on thee, to plunge thy enemies in sorrow and to fill thy friend with joy.
Mbh.2.30.1278 King Nila had a daughter who was exceedingly beautiful.
Mbh.2.30.1281 And it was said in King Nila's palace and in the house of all his subjects that the god Agni desired that beautiful girl for his bride.
Mbh.2.34.1456 The King gratified everybody with presents of great value and indeed with every kind of object that one could desire.
Mbh.2.36.1511 When that King of kings, Duryyodhana, that foremost of men, is here, as also Kripa the preceptor of the Bharata princes, why hath Krishna been worshipped by thee?
Mbh.2.45.1854 King Yudhishthira the just, thus addressed by the Rishi of dark hue, saluted him his grandfather and touching his feet said, O chief of men, a doubt difficult of being dispelled, hath risen within me.
Mbh.2.48.2017 Vaisampayana continued, King Duryodhana, thus addressed by Sakuni, without allowing a moment to elapse, said unto Dhritarashtra, This, Sakuni, an adept at dice, is ready to win at dice, O king, the wealth of the sons of Pandu.
Mbh.2.56.2302 SECTION LVI Vaisampayana said, King Dhritarashtra, ascertaining the inclinations of his son and knowing that Fate is inevitable, did what I have said.
Mbh.2.57.2350 Vaisampayana continued, King Yudhishthira the just having said this unto Vidura, commanded that preparations for his journey might be made without loss of time.
Mbh.2.57.2363 King Dhritarashtra then, O monarch, smelt his head as also the heads of those four other princes of the Kuru race, viz, the sons of Pandu with Bhimasena as their eldest.
Mbh.2.65.2668 In my judgement, slavery does not attach to Krishna, in as much as she was staked by the King after he had lost himself and ceased to be his own master.
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.2.74.3182 Vaisampayana continued, King Yudhishthira, even hearing these various remarks, from shame and a sense of virtue again sat at dice.
Mbh.2.78.3358 King Yudhishthira is always kind, O Bharata, to thy children.
Mbh.2.79.3445 This daughter of the King of Panchala is the faultless Sree herself.
Mbh.3.6.368 And Yudhishthira made the usual enquiries about his welfare and when he had been seated at his ease, he disclosed the reason of his visit, in these words, King Dhritarashtra, the son of Amvika, hath, O Kshatta!
Mbh.3.26.1223 King Vali cherishing his subjects practised those duties that lead to salvation, and knew not of any other means in this world than Brahmanas.
Mbh.3.27.1259 My heart, O King knoweth no peace!
Mbh.3.73.3648 And Damayanti said, Because the rattle of his car filling the whole earth, gladdens my heart, it must be King Nala that has come.
Mbh.3.75.3730 King Bhima had sent various kinds of meat, of diverse animals, for Rituparna's food.
Mbh.3.76.3790 Except thee, O lord of earth, there is no one in this world, who in one day can clear, O King, a hundred yojanas with horses.
Mbh.3.79.3907 Vaisampayana continued, King Yudhishthira then, with a glad heart, said unto Vrihadaswa, O illustrious one, I desire to learn the science of dice from thee'
Mbh.3.107.5552 And the lotus-eyed King Sagara having ruled his kingdom for a period of exceeding length, placed his grandson on the throne, full of responsibilities and then ascended to heaven.
Mbh.3.129.6592 King Bharata here performed sacrificial rites.

Mbh.3.140.7126 King Suvahu, the lord of the Pulindas, cheerfully received them at the frontiers of his dominions, paying them proper respect.
Mbh.3.182.9021 You take no delight in sensual pleasures; you do not act, O lord of men, from motives of enjoyment, nor do you swerve from virtue from greed of riches; it is for this, you have been named the Virtuous King, O son of Pritha!
Mbh.3.182.9022 Having won kingdoms and riches and means of enjoyment, your best delight has been charity and truth and practice of austerities, O King, and faith and meditation and forbearance and patience!
Mbh.3.199.10097 SECTION CLXLIX Vaisampayana said, King Yudhishthira, hearing from the illustrious Markandeya the story of the royal sage Indradyumna's regaining of Heaven, again asked the Muni, saying, O great Muni, tell me in what condition should a man practise charity in order to gain admission into the regions of Indra?
Mbh.3.206.10611 King Janaka punisheth him that is wicked, even if he be his own son; but never doth he inflict pain on him that is virtuous.
Mbh.3.207.10723 King Saudasa, O Brahmana, when under a curse, often used to prey upon men; what is thy opinion of this matter?
Mbh.3.214.10981 And, O great man, as the fallen King Yayati was saved by his virtuous grandsons daughter's sons, so, have I know been saved by thee.
Mbh.3.236.11916 King Dhritarashtra is always grieving for those heroes.
Mbh.3.237.11955 King Yudhishthira will not suffer his wrath to be awakened, but Bhimasena is naturally passionate.
Mbh.3.238.11981 SECTION CCXXXVIII Vaisampayana said, King Duryodhana then moving from forest to forest, at last approached the cattle-stations, and encamped his troops.
Mbh.3.238.11996 And, O thou best of the Kuru race, King Yudhishthira the just, endued with high intelligence, was then, O monarch, residing in the vicinity of that lake at will and celebrating with his wedded wife, the daughter of Drupada, the diurnal sacrifice called Rajarshi, according to the ordinance sanctioned for the celestials and persons living in the wilderness.
Mbh.3.273.13308 The pious Vibhishana, O King, treading in the path followed by the virtuous and possessed of great glory, followed Kuvera.
Mbh.3.297.14687 Good betide thee, O King!
Mbh.4.25.1137 King Matsya's commander, Kichaka of wicked soul, by whom the Trigartas, O monarch, were repeatedly vanquished and slain with mighty force, now lieth low on the ground with all his brothers, slain, O monarch, by invisible Gandharvas during the hours of darkness, O thou of unfading glory.
Mbh.4.31.1257 And appearing before that enhancer of his dominion, King Virata seated in court, the herdsman bowed down unto him, and addressed him, saying, O foremost of kings, defeating and humiliating us in battle along with our friends the Trigartas are seizing thy cattle by hundreds and by thousands.
Mbh.4.47.1810 SECTION XLVII Vaisampayana said, King Duryodhana then, on the field of battle said unto Bhishma, and unto Drona, that tiger among warriors, and unto Kripa, that mighty car-warrior, these words, Both myself and Kama had said this unto the preceptors I refer to the subject again, for I am not satisfied with having said it once.
Mbh.4.67.2639 Thus addressed, King Matsya became angry and said unto Pandu's son, Thou wretch of a Brahmana, dost thou compare one of the neuter sex with my son!
Mbh.5.5.122 Vaisampayana said, King Virata, then having honoured Krishna, sent him home with his followers and relatives.
Mbh.5.25.1039 King Dhritarashtra, eagerly welcoming the chance of peace, hastened the preparation of my car for this journey here.
Mbh.5.26.1088 King Dhritarashtra, desirous solely of satisfying his sons, would knowingly enter upon an unrighteous course.
Mbh.5.26.1090 King Dhritarashtra is desirous of satisfying his son, who, while himself seeking honours from others, is envious and wrathful, who transgresses the rules for the acquisition of virtue and wealth, whose tongue is foul, who always follows the dictates of his wrath, whose soul is absorbed in sensual pleasures, and who, full of unfriendly feelings to many, obeys no law, and whose life is evil, heart implacable, and understanding vicious.
Mbh.5.29.1250 The King should never obey the dictates of such desires as are opposed to righteousness.
Mbh.5.29.1301 King Dhritarashtra with his sons constitutes a forest, while, O Sanjaya, the sons of Pandu are its tigers.
Mbh.5.33.1481 SECTION XXXIII Vaisampayana said, King Dhritarashtra endued with great wisdom then said to the orderly-in-waiting, I desire to see Vidura.
Mbh.5.33.1508 Vidura replied, King Yudhishthira, graced with every virtue, is worthy of being the sovereign of the three worlds; yet, O Dhritarashtra, however worthy of being kept by thy side, he was exiled by thee.
Mbh.5.33.1621 King Pandu consumed by a Brahmana's curse, had five sons born unto him in the woods that are like five Indras.
Mbh.5.36.1861 Dhritarashtra said, King Yudhishthira who is like a flame of fire, has been deceived by me.
Mbh.5.50.2857 Hear, O King, with whom the Pandavas will contend against you.
Mbh.5.50.2859 With that personage of virtuous soul, who never forsaketh truth through anger or fear, temptation, or for the sake of wealth, of disputation; and who is, O King, a very authority in matters of religion, himself being the best of those that practise virtue, with him, who hath never made an enemy, the sons of Pandu will fight against you'
Mbh.5.50.2868 He, who in energy hath for his equals only four men on earth, viz, Aswatthaman and Dhrishtaketu and Rukmi and Pradyumna, with that Sahadeva, youngest in years, that hero among men, that gladdener of Madri's heart, with him, O King, will you have a destructive battle.
Mbh.5.74.3737 King Yudhishthira also approveth of this, and Arjuna too is averse to war, for there is great compassion in him
Mbh.5.79.3853 King Yudhishthira the just doth not wish to give up the kingdom submissively.
Mbh.5.85.4072 King Duryodhana then, understanding their wishes, ordered delightful sites to be chosen for the erection of pavilions.
Mbh.5.88.4147 King Dhritarashtra then spoke those words unto Duryodhana, O ruler of men, never say this again, this is not immemorial custom.
Mbh.5.96.4566 King Dambhodbhava, still desirous of battle, repeatedly summoned those Rishis to fight.
Mbh.5.120.5350 SECTION CXX Narada said, King Yayati then, desirous again of disposing of his daughter in Swayamvara, went to a hermitage on the confluence of the Ganga and the Yamuna, taking Madhavi with him on a chariot, her person decked with garlands of flowers.
Mbh.5.127.5607 Indeed, thyself and Kshattri, the King, the Preceptor, and the Grandsire, all reproach me alone and not any other monarch.
Mbh.5.130.5793 King Dhritarashtra then addressed Duryodhana, surrounded by Karna and Dussasana and all those kings, saying, O wretch of accumulated sins, having for thy allies men of despicable acts, infamous is the deed that thou, uniting with sinful friends, seekest to do.
Mbh.5.132.5874 King Muchukunda then, fully observing the duties of the Kshatriya order ruled this earth, having conquered it by the prowess of his arms.
Mbh.5.141.6333 King Yudhishthira of virtuous Soul, ever engaged in Yapa and Homa, will himself be the Brahma of that sacrifice.
Mbh.5.144.6447 King Yudhishthira, having the Chedis, the Panchalas, and the Kekayas, Bhima and Arjuna, Krishna, Yuyudhana, and the twins for his allies, stayeth yet at Upaplavya, and from affection for kinsmen, looketh up to righteousness only, like a weak man, though he is possessed of great strength.
Mbh.5.144.6448 King Dhritarashtra here, though old in years, doth not effect peace, and intoxicated with pride of children, treadeth a sinful path.
Mbh.5.150.6731 King Duryodhana then repeatedly ordered those wicked-hearted rulers, saying, Today constellation Pushya is ascendant, march ye this very day to Kurukshetra.
Mbh.5.150.6733 Eleven Akshauhinis of troops have been, O King, assembled for the Kauravas.
Mbh.5.153.6823 SECTION CLIII Vaisampayana said, King Yudhishthira then caused his troops to encamp on a part of the field that was level, cool, and abounding with grass and fuel.
Mbh.5.155.6888 King Yudhishthira the Just, however, beholding the impending slaughter of those that deserved not to be slain, began to sigh deeply, and addressing Bhimasena and Vijaya, said, That for the sake of which I accepted an exile into the woods and for which I suffered so much misery, that great calamity overtaketh us of a set purpose.
Mbh.5.159.7041 King Yudhishthira, advancing a few steps, offered him worship.
Mbh.5.163.7380 King Yudhishthira the Just, then, having spoken mildly unto all the kings each according to his age and as each deserved said, at last, unto Uluka these words so that he might carry them to Duryodhana.
Mbh.5.164.7467 King Yudhishthira once more said these high words fraught with clemency, viz, O monarch, I never desire the slaughter of my kinsmen.
Mbh.5.169.7680 King Duryodhana then said unto Bhishma, of great prowess, Cast thy eyes on me, O Ganga's son!
Mbh.5.172.7760 King Chitrayudha is, in my judgment, one of the best of Rathas.
Mbh.5.193.8605 King Hiranyavarman, however, ascertaining once again, that the child of the king of the Panchalas was really a daughter, issued out of his city without losing any time.
Mbh.5.193.8611 Bhishma continued, King Drupada was not naturally courageous.
Mbh.5.194.8640 King Drupada's city was, O Bharata, naturally well-protected.
Mbh.6.17.859 King Saivya of the country of the Govasanas, accompanied by all the monarchs, went out on a princely elephant worthy of royal use and graced with a banner on its back.
Mbh.6.17.874 And Ketumat also, riding on an elephant with a highly excellent and beautiful hook, was stationed in battle, O King, like the Sun in the midst of black clouds.
Mbh.6.19.923 King Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, took up his position in the centre of his army, surrounded by huge and furious elephants resembling moving hills.
Mbh.6.42.1991 O King recollecting and again recollecting this wonderful and holy converse of Kesava and Arjuna, I rejoice over and over again.
Mbh.6.55.2940 King Duryodhana then, O monarch, beholding his mighty son thus afflicted by thy grandson Abhimanyu, proceeded to that spot.
Mbh.6.73.3876 SECTION LXXIII Sanjaya said, King Virata then pierced that mighty car-warrior, viz, Bhishma, with three shafts.
Mbh.6.83.4348 Then Sikhandin, O King, exceedingly afflicted with those whetted arrows, speedily mounted on the car of Satyaki that high-souled scion of Madhu's race.
Mbh.6.84.4422 King Bhagadatta then cut off that swift dart furnished with a staff of gold and coursing impetuously towards him into three fragments, and thereupon it fell down on the ground.
Mbh.6.86.4522 King Yudhishthira then, beholding Sikhandin flying away, having had his weapon cut off by Santanu's son became filled with anger.
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.6.96.5069 King Bhagadatta afflicted Bhimasena with that arrowy shower like the clouds afflicting the mountain breast with torrents of rain on the expiry of summer.
Mbh.6.104.5570 And as the river Vaitarani beareth all departed spirits towards the domains of the King of the Dead, so that river of bloody current bore away all timid men deprived of their senses in a swoon.
Mbh.6.105.5580 SECTION CV Sanjaya said, O tiger among men, Arjuna sent those Kshatriyas that followed Susarman to the abode of the King of the Dead by means of his whetted shafts.
Mbh.6.117.6398 King Bhagadatta, however, of great prowess then rushed at Arjuna, and checked his course in battle with showers of arrows.
Mbh.7.10.355 Seated, the King continued to be under the influence of that swoon.
Mbh.7.13.501 King Yudhishthira the just, however, O Bharata, soon learnt in detail, through his spies, everything about the purpose upon which Bharadwaja's son was intent.
Mbh.7.14.606 King Drupada was engaged with Bhagadatta.
Mbh.7.17.798 Sanjaya continued, King Yudhishthira then gave Arjuna the leave he sought.
Mbh.7.23.1145 King Nila advanced to battle, with standard and armour and bow and banner and steeds all of the same blue colour.
Mbh.7.50.2336 King Akampana, O monarch, I know, while in this world was afflicted with very great and unbearable grief on account of the death of his son, I will now tell these the excellent story about the origin of Death.

Mbh.7.92.4259 King Valhika, exerting himself vigorously, resisted the mighty and unvanquished Sikhandin, the son of Yajnasena, that hero capable of resisting all foes.
Mbh.7.93.4299 King Yudhishthira, having in that battle pierced the ruler of the Madras with five hundred arrows, once more pierced him with seven.
Mbh.7.97.4496 King Duryodhana understands it not'
Mbh.7.103.4776 King Yudhishthira staying there at the head of his division from desire of victory, was resisted by valiant Drona himself.
Mbh.7.104.4815 King Vrihatkshatra then, O monarch, desirous of piercing through Drona's division, quickly struck his antagonist with ninety straight shafts.
Mbh.7.120.5901 Then King Duryodhana, seeing Duhsasana thus covered with arrows, urged a body of Trigartas towards the car of Yuyudhana.

Mbh.8.69.4002 How then, O foremost of men, couldst thou wish, like an ordinary person, to slay thy eldest brother, the King, who is conversant with morality?

Mbh.9.17.1045 King Yudhishthira the just, took up a dart whose handle was adorned with gold and gems and whose effulgence was as bright as that of gold.
Mbh.9.17.1051 King Yudhishthira the just, in that battle, carefully hurled that dart which resembled kala-ratri the Death Night armed with the fatal noose or the foster-mother of fearful aspect of Yama himself, and which like the Brahmana's curse, was incapable of being baffled.
