MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.117 And being dissatisfied, he did nothing to prevent the disputes, but overlooked the gaming and sundry other horried unjustifiable transactions arising therefrom: and in spite of Vidura, Bhishma, Drona, and Kripa, the son of Saradwan, he made the Kshatriyas kill each other in the terrific war that ensued'
Mbh.1.1.177 When I heard that Drona, Kritavarma, Kripa, Karna, the son of Drona, and the valiant king of Madra Salya suffered Saindhava to be slain, then, O Sanjaya, I had no hope of success.
Mbh.1.2.283 At the close of that day, Aswatthaman and Kripa destroyed the army of Yudishthira in the night while sleeping without suspicion of danger.
Mbh.1.2.469 On the Pandavas having gone away, the mighty charioteers, Kritavarman, Kripa, and the son of Drona, came to the field of battle in the evening and there saw king Duryodhana lying on the ground, his thighs broken, and himself covered with blood.
Mbh.1.2.476 And then accompanied by Kritavarman and Kripa he slew all the sons of Draupadi, all the Panchalas with Dhrishtadyumna and others, together with their relatives, slumbering unsuspectingly in the night.
Mbh.1.63.3166 And from the seed of Gautama, fallen upon a clump of reeds, were born two that were twins, the mother of Aswatthaman called Kripi, and Kripa of great strength.
Mbh.1.67.3498 And, O king, that Brahman sage who, on earth, was known by the name of Kripa and was the embodiment of all manliness was born of the tribe of the Rudras.
Mbh.1.129.6964 Born among a clump of heath, Gautama was well-skilled in the Vedas and it was under him also called Kripa that the Kuru princes began to learn the use of arms
Mbh.1.130.6965 SECTION CXXX Sambhava Parva continued Janamejaya said, O Brahmana, it behoveth thee to relate to me everything about the birth of Kripa.
Mbh.1.130.6985 And he began to bring them up and called them Kripa and Kripi, in allusion to the fact that he brought them up from motives of pity Kripa.
Mbh.1.130.6989 He then taught Kripa the four branches of the science of arms, and various other branches of knowledge, including all their mysteries and recondite details.
Mbh.1.130.6990 In a short time Kripa became an eminent professor of the science of arms.
Mbh.1.133.7069 SECTION CXXXIII Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Arrived at Hastinapura, that best of Brahmanas, the son of Bharadwaja, continued to live privately in the house of Gautama Kripa.
Mbh.1.133.7072 Drona had thus lived privately for some time in the house of Kripa when one day the heroic princes, all in a company, came out of Hastinapura.
Mbh.1.136.7282 SECTION CXXXVI Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, O thou of Bharata's race, beholding the sons of Dhritarashtra and Pandu accomplished in arms, Drona, O monarch, addressed king Dhritarashtra, in the presence of Kripa, Somadatta, Valhika, the wise son of Ganga Bhishma, Vyasa, and Vidura, and said, O best of Kuru kings, thy children have completed their education.
Mbh.1.136.7295 When the day fixed for the Tournament came, the king accompanied by his ministers, with Bhishma and Kripa, the foremost of preceptors, walking ahead, came unto that theatre of almost celestial beauty constructed of pure gold, and decked with strings of pearls and stones of lapis lazuli.
Mbh.1.138.7358 The mighty-armed warrior, eyeing all around the arena, bowed indifferently to Drona and Kripa.
Mbh.1.138.7385 And the son of Dhritarashtra stood by Karna, and Bharadwaja and Kripa and Bhishma remained with Partha.
Mbh.1.138.7390 And beholding both the warriors with bows strung in their hands the son of Saradwat, viz, Kripa, knowing all duties and cognisant of the rules regulating duels, addressed Karna, saying This Pandava, who is the youngest son of Kunti, belongeth to the Kaurava race: he will engage in combat with thee.
Mbh.1.138.7394 Vaisampayana continued, When he was thus addressed by Kripa, Karna's countenance became like unto a lotus pale and torn with the pelting showers in the rainy season.
Mbh.1.139.7421 The foremost of all wielders of weapons, the preceptor Drona hath been born in a waterpot and Kripa of the race of Gotama hath sprung from a clump of heath.
Mbh.1.139.7428 And, O king, the Pandavas also, accompanied by Drona and Kripa and Bhishma, returned to their abodes.
Mbh.1.144.7781 Neither Bhishma, nor Drona, nor Kshattri, nor Gautama Kripa will ever sanction the exile of the Pandavas.
Mbh.1.144.7788 Kripa, the son of Saradwat, must be on the side on which Drona and Aswatthaman are.
Mbh.1.145.7805 Then addressing Bhishma, the son of Santanu, the wise Vidura, Drona, Valhika, the Kaurava, Somadatta, Kripa, Aswatthaman, Bhurisravas, and the other councillors, and Brahmanas and ascetics, and the priests and the citizens, and the illustrious Gandhari, he said slowly and humbly, With our friends and followers we go to the delightful and populous town of Varanavata at the command of Dhritarashtra.
Mbh.1.147.7829 While they were on the point of entering their cars, they touched, in great sorrow, the feet of Bhishma, of king Dhritarashtra, of the illustrious Drona, of Kripa, of Vidura and of the other elders of the Kuru race.
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.1.191.9554 Who also can encounter Duryodhana in battle except Krishna, the son of Devaki, and Kripa, the son of Saradwan?
Mbh.1.201.9968 Accompanied by his brothers, Aswatthaman, his uncle Sakuni, Karna and Kripa the prince set out with a heavy heart for his capital.
Mbh.1.208.10240 They who were thus sent out were, O Bharata, Vikarna of the great bow, and Chitrasena, and Drona that foremost of warriors, and Kripa of Gautama's line.
Mbh.2.32.1417 Then that bull among men, king Yudhishthira despatched Nakula the son of Pandu unto Hastinapura to bring Bhishma and Drona, Dhritarashtra and Vidura and Kripa and those amongst his cousins that were well-disposed towards him
Mbh.2.33.1421 And Dhritarashtra and Bhishma and Vidura of high intelligence; and all Kaurava brothers with Duryyodhana at their head; and Suvala the king of Gandhara and Sakuni endued with great strength; and Achala, and Vrishaka, and Karna that foremost of all charioteers; and Salya endued with great might and the strong Valhika; and Somadatta, and Bhuri of the Kuru race, and Bhurisravas and Sala; and Aswatthama, Kripa, Drona, and Jayadratha, the ruler of Sindhu; and Yajnasena with his sons, and Salya that lord of earth and that great car warrior king Bhagadatta of Pragjyotisha accompanied by all Mlechcha tribes inhabiting the marshy regions on the sea-shore; and many mountain kings, and king Vrihadvala; and Vasudeva the king of the Paundrayas, and the kings of Vanga and Kalinga; and Akastha and Kuntala and the kings of the Malavas and the Andhrakas; and the Dravidas and the Singhalas and the king of Kashmira, and king Kuntibhoja of great energy and king Gauravahana, and all the other heroic kings of Valhika; and Virata with his two sons, and Mavella endued with great might; and various kings and princes ruling in various countries; and, O Bharata king Sisupala endued with great energy and invincible in battle accompanied by his son, all of them came to the sacrifice of the son of Pandu.
Mbh.2.34.1436 SECTION XXXIV Vaisampayana said, then, O king, Yudhishthira, having approached and worshipped his grandfather and his preceptor, addressed Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and the son of Drona and Duryyodhana and Vivingsati, and said, Help me ye all in the mater of this sacrifice.
Mbh.2.34.1444 And the king appointed Kripa to look after the diamonds and gold and the pearls and gems, as also after the distribution of gifts to Brahmanas.
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.2.43.1730 Passing over Duryyodhana, that mighty-armed king of kings, who is unequalled in whole earth girt with her seas and king Jayadratha accomplished in weapons and endued with great prowess, and Druma the preceptor of the Kimpurushas and celebrated over the world for prowess, and Saradwata's son, old Kripa, the preceptor of the Bharata princes and endued with great energy, why dost thou praise Kesava?
Mbh.2.47.1947 Drona of great prowess and wielding the large bow along with his son, Radha's son Karna, the great warrior Gautama Kripa, myself with my brothers and king Saumadatti, these are thy allies.
Mbh.2.57.2357 And the exalted one then approached Bhishma and Drona and Karna, and Kripa, and the son of Drona, and embraced and was embraced by them all.
Mbh.2.59.2425 And, O Bharata, Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and the high-souled Vidura with cheerless hearts sat behind.
Mbh.2.64.2650 And Bhishma and Drona and Kripa were covered with perspiration.
Mbh.2.66.2812 The son of Bharadwaja who is the preceptor of us, as also Kripa, is here.
Mbh.2.76.3243 SECTION LXXVII Yudhishthira said, I bid farewell unto all the Bharatas, unto my old grand-sire Bhishma, king Somadatta, the great king Vahlika, Drona, Kripa, all the other kings, Aswathaman, Vidura, Dhritarashtra, all the sons of Dhritarashtra, Yayutsu, Sanjaya, and all the courtiers, I bid fare well, all of ye and returning again I shall see you
Mbh.2.77.3327 Alas, when there are such elders amongst our race as Bhishma and Drona and Kripa, all conversant with morality and the science of worldly concerns, how could such calamity at all come?
Mbh.2.79.3440 Then Bhishma and Drona, and Kripa, and Somadatta and the high-souled Vahlika, all left the assembly.
Mbh.3.8.422 Thou art as honest as the wise Vidura, or Bhishma, or ourselves, or Kripa, or Drona, O thou of great wisdom, dissension with one's own kin are forbidden, sinful and reprehensible!
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.3.29.1407 Our grandsire, the son of Santanu, will worship peace; Krishna, the son of Devaki, will worship peace; the preceptor Drona and Vidura called Kshatri will both speak of peace; Kripa and Sanjaya also will preach peace.
Mbh.3.36.1873 Although the behaviour of Bhishma, Drona, and the illustrious Kripa, is the same towards us as towards them, yet, O thou of mighty arms, this is my certain conclusion that in order to pay off the royal favours they enjoy, they will throw their very lives, than which there is nothing dearer, in battle.
Mbh.3.36.1883 The fear that is in thy heart, arising from Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and Drona's son, and prince Duryodhana, and Dussasana, I will dispell, O slayer of all foes, by means of an act enjoined by the ordinance.
Mbh.3.37.1905 Taking hold of Arjuna's hands, with a smiling face and in gentle accents, that chastiser of foes, the virtuous Yudhishthira, apparently after reflecting for a moment, spake these words in private unto Dhananjaya, O Bharata, the whole science of arms dwelleth in Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and Drona's son.
Mbh.3.40.2151 Arjuna said, O illustrious god having the bull for thy sign, if thou wilt grant me my desire, I ask of thee, O lord that fierce celestial weapon wielded by thee and called Brahmasira, that weapon of terrific prowess which destroyeth, at the end of the Yuga the entire universe, that weapon by the help of which, O god of gods, I may under thy grace, obtain victory in the terrible conflict which shall take place between myself on one side, and Karna and Bhishma and Kripa and Drona on the other, that weapon by which I may consume in battle Danavas and Rakshasas and evil spirits and Pisachas and Gandharvas and Nagas, that weapon which when hurled with Mantras produceth darts by thousands and fierce-looking maces and arrows like snakes of virulent poison, and by means of which I may fight with Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Karna of ever abusive tongue, O illustrious destroyer of the eyes of Bhaga, even this is my foremost desire, viz, that I may be able to fight with them and obtain success'
Mbh.3.86.4754 Kripa and the son of Drona are invincible; these mighty warriors have been installed by Dhritarashtra's son in the command of his army.
Mbh.3.119.6091 How is it that Bhishma and Kripa and the Brahmana Drona and the aged king, the senior member of the house, are living happily, after having banished the sons of Pritha?
Mbh.3.120.6134 Kripa and Drona and Vikarna and Kama are not able to bear the keen arrows shot by Pradyumna.
Mbh.3.173.8686 And, O son, when thou art in the field, Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Karna and Sakuni together with other Kshatriyas shall not amount unto one-sixteenth part of thee'
Mbh.3.247.12243 What will Bhishma and Drona, Kripa, and Drona's son, Vidura and Sanjaya, Vahuka and Somadatta and other revered seniors, what will the principal men of the other orders and men of independent professions, say to me and what shall I say unto them in reply?
Mbh.3.250.12383 And, O king, others with Bhishma, Drona, and Kripa at their head, having their faculties influenced by the Danavas, were not so affectionate towards the sons of Pandu as they had been.
Mbh.3.251.12402 And what did the offspring of the Sun, Karna, and the mighty Sakuni, and Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa do?
Mbh.3.252.12462 And the king proclaimed his feats, saying, What I have not received from either Bhishma, or Drona, or Kripa, or Vahlika, I have received from thee.
Mbh.3.254.12513 And Dhritarashtra, and the illustrious Vidura, and Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and the celebrated Gandhari experienced great delight.
Mbh.3.255.12543 Then, O king, worshipping the feet of his father and mother and of others headed by Bhishma, Drona and Kripa, and of the wise Vidura, and worshipped in turn by his younger brothers, that delighter of brothers sat down upon an excellent seat, surrounded by the latter.
Mbh.3.255.12561 Meanwhile the royal son of Dhritarashtra began to rule the earth, along with his heroic brothers as also with Bhishma and Drona and Kripa.
Mbh.3.307.15060 And having acquired all the four kinds of weapons from Drona, Kripa, and Rama, he became famous in the world as a mighty bowman.
Mbh.4.25.1120 And seeing Dhritarashtra's son king Duryodhana of the Kuru race seated in his court with Drona and Karna and Kripa, with the high-souled Bhishma, his own brothers, and those great warriors, the Trigartas, they addressed him, saying, O lord of men, great hath been the care always bestowed by us in the search after the sons of Pandu in that mighty forest.
Mbh.4.29.1209 SECTION XXIX Vaisampayana said, Then Saradwata's son, Kripa said, What the aged Bhishma hath said concerning the Pandavas is reasonable, suited to the occasion, consistent with virtue and profit, agreeable to the ear, fraught with sound reason, and worthy of him.
Mbh.4.30.1238 Or, let the expedition be managed as Saradwata's son Kripa, the preceptor Drona, and the wise and aged grandsire of the Kurus may think.
Mbh.4.35.1417 And Bhishma and Drona, and Karna, and Kripa acquainted with the best of weapons, Aswatthaman, and Suvala's son, and Dussasana, O lord of men, and Vivingsati and Vikarna and Chitrasena endued with great energy, and Durmukha and Dussaha, these and many other great warriors, coming upon the Matsya dominion speedily drove off the cowherds of king Virata and forcibly took away the kine.
Mbh.4.36.1449 Like a second wielder of the thunderbolt terrifying the Danavas, I will bring back the kine this very moment, affrighting in battle Duryodhana and Bhishma and Karna and Kripa and Drona with his son, and other mighty bowmen assembled for fight.
Mbh.4.38.1514 And beholding that mighty host abounding in elephants, horses and chariots, and protected by Karna and Duryodhana and Kripa and Santanu's son, and that intelligent and great bowman Drona, with his son Aswatthaman, the son of Virata, agitated with fear and the bristles on his body standing on their ends, thus spake unto Partha, I dare not fight with the Kurus.
Mbh.4.38.1518 My mind is too much perturbed by the very sight of the foe on the field of battle on which stand Drona and Bhishma, and Kripa, and Karna, and Vivingsati, and Aswatthaman and Vikarna, and Saumadatti, and Vahlika, and the heroic king Duryodhana also, that foremost of car-warriors, and many other splendid bowmen, all skilled in battle.
Mbh.4.39.1598 Vaisampayana continued, The son of Dhritarashtra, O chastiser of foes, having said this, Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Drona's son all applauded his manliness
Mbh.4.45.1760 Trained in arms by the preceptor Drona, by Sakra, and Vaisravana, and Yama, and Varuna, and Agni, and Kripa, and Krishna of Madhu's race, and by the wielder of the Pinaka Siva, why shall I not fight with these?
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.4.47.1828 Why are all these of foremost car-warriors, Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Vikarna and Drona's son, now sitting on their cars, panic-stricken?
Mbh.4.49.1879 SECTION XLIX Kripa said, O Radheya, thy crooked heart always inclineth to war.
Mbh.4.51.1952 SECTION LI Bhishma said, Drona's son observeth well, and Kripa, too observeth rightly.
Mbh.4.51.1963 Everything should now be forgiven by thyself and the preceptor Kripa.
Mbh.4.51.1979 Vaisampayana continued, Then, O Bharata, Duryodhana assisted by Kama and Kripa, and the high-souled Bhishma pacified Drona'
Mbh.4.52.2015 Myself and Drona, and Karna and Aswatthaman and Kripa will resolutely withstand Vibhatsu, or the king of the Matsyas, or Indra himself, if he approaches.
Mbh.4.52.2019 And addressing the preceptor, he said, O preceptor, stand thou in the centre, and let Aswatthaman stand on the left, and let the wise Kripa, son of Saradwata, defend the right wing, and let Karna of the Suta caste, clad in mail, stand in the van.
Mbh.4.53.2034 And there are those great bowmen, Bhishma and Kripa and Kama.
Mbh.4.53.2040 And as Arjuna went away leaving that thick array of cars, Kripa, guessing his intention, addressed his own comrades, saying, This Vibhatsu desireth not to take up his stand at a spot remote from the king.
Mbh.4.54.2082 And afflicting by means of his shafts, Vikartana's son along with his steeds, car and car-driver, Kiritin impetuously poured an arrowy shower on him, casting his eyes on the grandsire and Drona and Kripa.
Mbh.4.55.2127 And Arjuna then shot three and seventy arrows of sharp points at Drona, and ten at Dussaha and eight at Drona's son, and twelve at Dussasana, and three at Kripa, the son of Saradwat.
Mbh.4.55.2133 Arjuna replied, O Uttara, yonder auspicious warrior whom thou seest cased in coat of tiger-skin and stationed on his car furnished with a blue-flag and drawn by red steeds, is Kripa.
Mbh.4.55.2155 Thus addressed by him, Virata's son, O king, guided Savyasachin's car with great alacrity towards the spot where Kripa stood anxious to fight
Mbh.4.57.2173 And the slayer of Vala, although he steadfastly gazed at his son on the field of battle, was not satiated with such gazing SECTION LVII Vaisampayana said, Beholding the army of the Kurus arrayed in order of battle, that descendant of the Kuru race, Partha, addressing Virata's son, said, Do thou proceed to the spot where Kripa, the son of Saradwat, is going by the southern side of that car whose flag is seen to bear the device of a golden altar'
Mbh.4.57.2178 And wheeling round, the intrepid and mighty son of Virata at last approached the car of Kripa, and stood confronting him.
Mbh.4.57.2183 Thereupon that heroic and intrepid and mighty car-warrior, Saradwat's son Kripa, endued with strength and prowess, waxing wroth at Arjuna, and unable to bear that sound and eager for fight, took up his own sea-begotten conch and blew it vehemently.
Mbh.4.57.2188 Thereupon Kripa, by means of whetted shafts, cut into hundreds and thousands of fragments, those blood-drinking arrows of Partha before they could come up.
Mbh.4.57.2190 And covering the entire welkin with his shafts, that mighty warrior of immeasurable soul, the son of Pritha, enveloped Kripa with hundred of shafts.
Mbh.4.57.2191 And sorely afflicted by those whetted arrows resembling flames of fire, Kripa waxed wroth and quickly afflicting the high-souled Partha of immeasurable prowess with ten thousand shafts, set up on the field of battle a loud roar.
Mbh.4.57.2193 And pierced by means of those whetted arrows resembling flames of fire those steeds suddenly reared themselves, and in consequence Kripa reeled off his place.
Mbh.4.57.2204 And beholding his dart thus cut off by the intelligent Arjuna, Kripa quickly took up another bow and almost simultaneously shot a number of crescent-shaped arrows.
Mbh.4.57.2209 And with the thirteenth Falguni, who was like Indra himself as if smiling in derision, pierced Kripa in the breast.
Mbh.4.57.2210 Then with his bow cut off, his car broken, his steeds slain, his car-driver killed, Kripa leapt down and taking up a mace quickly hurled it at Arjuna.
Mbh.4.57.2211 But that heavy and polished mace hurled by Kripa was sent back along its course, struck by means of Arjuna's arrows.
Mbh.4.57.2214 And those illustrious bulls among men, taking Kripa with them who had been deprived of his car, led him away from the vicinity of Dhananiaya, the son of Kunti
Mbh.4.58.2215 SECTION LVIII Vaisampayana said, After Kripa had thus been taken away, the invincible Drona of red steeds, taking up his bow to which he had already stringed an arrow, rushed towards Arjuna of white steeds.
Mbh.4.59.2306 Drona and Bhishma, and Karna, and the mighty warrior Kripa, all applauded that feat of his greatly.
Mbh.4.65.2535 And Drona and Kripa and Vivingsati and Dussasana and others also, quickly turning back, rushed forward with speed with drawn bows and arrows fixed on the bow-strings, for protecting Duryodhana.
Mbh.4.65.2542 And when the Kuru army became insensible, Partha calling to mind the words of Uttara, addressed the son of the Matsya king, saying, O best of men, go thou among the Kurus, so long as they remain insensible, and bring away the white garments of Drona and Kripa, and the yellow and handsome ones of Karna, as also the blue ones of the king and Drona's son.
Mbh.4.65.2563 And having worshipped the aged grandsire, the son of Santanu, as also the preceptor Drona, and having saluted with beautiful arrows Drona's son and Kripa and other venerable ones among the Kurus, the son of Pritha broke into fragments Duryodhana's crown decked with precious gems, with another arrow.
Mbh.4.67.2604 And the women and the maidens of the palace and the other females living in the inner apartments joyfully said unto him, Our kine having been seized by the Kurus, Bhuminjaya incensed at this and from excess of bravery hath issued forth alone with only Vrihannala as his second, for vanquishing the six mighty car-warriors, Bhishma the son of Santanu, and Kripa, and Karna, and Duryodhana, and Drona, and Drona's son who have all come with the Kuru army'
Mbh.4.67.2645 Yudhishthira said, There where Bhishma and Drona and Drona's son and the son of Vikartana and Kripa and king Duryodhana and other royal and mighty car-warriors are assembled or there where Indra himself is surrounded by the Maruts, what other person than Vrihannala can fight, encountering them all!
Mbh.4.69.2697 It was he that repulsed with arrows Kripa and Drona and Drona's son of powerful energy, and the Suta's son and Bhishma.
Mbh.5.2.48 Let him respectfully salute Bhishma the heroic scion of Kuru's race, and the magnanimous son of Vichitravirya, and Drona along with his son, and Vidura and Kripa, and the king of Gandhara, along with the Suta's son.
Mbh.5.5.116 Dhritarashtra has always entertained a great respect for you; and you are also a friend of the preceptors Drona and Kripa.
Mbh.5.6.150 Vidura also will make use of those words of yours and will thus alienate the hearts of Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and others.
Mbh.5.22.944 That same Satyaki who, I have heard, obtained weapons from Drona and Arjuna and Krishna and Kripa and Bhishma, and who is said to be equal to the son of Krishna, is devotedly attached to the Pandava cause.
Mbh.5.23.990 I hope, O sire, that Somadatta is in health, and Bhurisravas, and Satyasandha, and Sala, and Drona with his son, and the Brahmana Kripa are also well.
Mbh.5.23.1008 I hope Drona and his son and the heroic Kripa do not talk of our having been guilty in any way.
Mbh.5.25.1052 Who again, O king, can defeat in battle the Kurus who are protected by Drona and Bhishma, and Aswatthaman, and Salya, and Kripa and Karna with a host of Kshatriya kings?
Mbh.5.27.1164 Forbearance would be more beneficial to you than love of enjoyments where Bhishma would be slain, and Drona with his son, and Kripa, and Somadatta's son, and Vikarna and Vivingsati, and Karna and Duryodhana.
Mbh.5.30.1336 Thou must also, O Sanjaya, repair to the abode of Kripa, the son of Saradwat, that mighty car-warrior and foremost of all persons having a knowledge of self, and repeatedly saluting him in my name touch his feet with thy hand.
Mbh.5.47.2657 And Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Salya, and Kritavarman and Jayadratha, and Aswatthaman and Vikarna, and Somadatta and Vahlika and Vidura of great wisdom and Yuyutsu, the great car-warrior, all these heroic kings in a body, O bull among the Bharatas, having Dhritarashtra at their head, entered that hall of great beauty.
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.5.51.2926 Bhishma, that regenerate Drona, and Kripa the son of Saradwat, these are as much acquainted as I myself with the energy of the intelligent Bhima.
Mbh.5.51.2930 O child, my sons are the same to these mighty bowmen as the Pandavas are to them, for all of them are grandsons of Bhishma and disciples of Drona and Kripa.
Mbh.5.55.3028 And hearing of all this, O bull of the Bharata race, I addressed Bhishma and Drona and Kripa, struck with fear, O king, at the prospect of the ruin that threatened our kindred.
Mbh.5.55.3040 It was thus that I addressed them, and seeing me afflicted by great anxiety and my senses tortured, Drona and Bhishma and Kripa and Drona's son then addressed me, saying, Fear not, O represser of foes, for if the foe wage hostilities with us, they will not be able to vanquish us when we take the field.
Mbh.5.55.3079 Bhishma, Drona Kripa and Drona's son, Karna and, Bhurisravas, Salya, the king of Pragjyotish, and Jayadratha, the king of the Sindhus, every one of these, O Bharata, is singly capable of slaying the Pandavas.
Mbh.5.55.3082 A hundred times shrouded by immeasurable arrows shot by Bhishma and Drona and Drona's son and Kripa, and deprived of strength, Partha will have to go unto Yama's abode.
Mbh.5.55.3089 Kripa also, hath taken his birth from the great Rishi Gautama.
Mbh.5.55.3096 Karna also, I suppose, is equal unto Bhishma and Drona and Kripa.
Mbh.5.55.3103 Equal unto him are these bowmen, Drona, Drona's son and Kripa.
Mbh.5.55.3110 Those, however, amongst us, that are our chief warriors, are Bhishma, Drona, Kripa, Drona's son, Karna, Somadatta, Vahlika, and Salya, the king of Pragjyotisha, the two kings Vindha and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Jayadratha; and then, O king, thy sons Dussasana, Durmukha, Dussaha, Srutayu; Chitrasena, Purumitra, Vivingsati, Sala, Bhurisravas, and Vikarna.
Mbh.5.57.3177 Bhishma, Drona, Kripa, the unconquerable Karna, Jayadratha, Somadatta, and Aswatthaman-all mighty bowmen and endued with great energy, are incapable of being vanquished by Indra himself united with the celestials.
Mbh.5.57.3190 Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Karna and Drona's son and Salya and Suyodhana, them all I withstand, like the bank resisting the swelling sea'
Mbh.5.58.3214 I myself do not desire war, nor Vahlika, nor Bhishma, nor Drona, nor Aswatthaman, nor Sanjaya, nor Somadatta, nor Salya, nor Kripa, nor Satyavrata, nor Purumitra, nor Bhurisravas, in fact, none of these desireth war.
Mbh.5.58.3218 Duryodhana said, I challenge the Pandavas to battle, without depending upon thyself, Drona, or Aswatthaman, or Sanjaya, or Vikarna, or Kamvoja, or Kripa, or Vahlika, or Satyavrata, or Purumitra, or Bhurisravas, or others of thy party.
Mbh.5.60.3281 I think that to save them from Bhishma and Drona and Kripa, the celestials will be filled with wrath, resembling the thunderbolt in its effects.
Mbh.5.60.3282 Endued with energy and well-versed in the use of weapons, those tigers among men, the sons of Pritha, when united with the celestials, will be incapable of being even gazed upon by human warriors, He who hath the irresistible, excellent and celestial Gandiva for his bow, he who hath a couple of celestial quivers obtained from Varuna, large, full of shafts, and inexhaustible, he on whose banner, that is unobstructed like smoke in its action, is stationed the monkey-image of celestial origin, whose car is unequalled on the earth girt by the four seas, and the rattle of which as heard by men is like the roar of the clouds, and which like the rolling of the thunder frightens the foe; he whom the whole world regards as superhuman in energy; he whom all the kings of the earth know to be the vanquisher of the very gods in battle; he that taketh up five hundred arrows at a time and in the twinkling of the eye, shooteth them, unseen by other, to a great distance; that son of Pritha and tiger among car-warriors and chastiser of foes, whom Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Drona's son and Salya, the king of the Madras, and in fact, all impartial persons, regard as incapable of being vanquished by even earthly kings of superhuman prowess, when ready for fight who shooteth at one stretch full five hundred arrows, and who is equal unto Kartavirya in strength of arms; that great bowman, Arjuna, equal unto Indra or Upendra in prowess, I behold that great warrior committing a great havoc in this terrible battle.
Mbh.5.61.3316 Whatever knowledge of weapons is in the Grandsire, in Drona, and Kripa, and Salya, and Shalya, exist in me as well.
Mbh.5.63.3352 I do not seek the accomplishment of my aims by relying upon thee, or Drona, or Kripa or Valhika, or upon the other kings.
Mbh.5.65.3422 Listen thou to what I say, and what these well-wishers of the Kurus, Drona, and Kripa, and Vikarna, and king Vahlika say.
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.5.73.3677 They regard themselves strong, having Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and others with them.
Mbh.5.83.3994 O glorious Krishna, salute her for me, the Kuru king Dhritarashtra also, and all those monarchs who are senior to us in age, and Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and king Vahlika, and Drona's son and Somadatta, and in fact, every one of the Bharata race, and also Vidura endued with great wisdom, that counsellor of the Kurus, of profound intellect and intimate acquaintance with morality, should all, O slayer of Madhu, be embraced by thee'
Mbh.5.89.4159 And all the Dhartarashtras except Duryodhana, attired in excellent robes, and with Bhishma, Drona, Kripa, and others, went out to meet him.
Mbh.5.89.4169 And upon that son of Dasarha's race approaching his presence, the blind monarch of great fame stood up along with Drona and Bhishma, Kripa and Somadatta, and king Vahlika also, all stood up for honouring Janardana.
Mbh.5.89.4172 And Janardana then accosted the illustrious Drona and his son, and Vahlika, and Kripa, and Somadatta.
Mbh.5.90.4207 It is known that amongst those that were present, king Vahlika, Kripa, Somadatta, were pierced with grief at this sight, but of all present in that assembly, it was Vidura whom I worship.
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.5.92.4334 He hath great faith in Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and Drona's son, and Jayadratha, and, therefore, he never setteth his heart on peace, O Janardana.
Mbh.5.95.4464 If with Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and Vivingsati, and Aswatthaman, Vikarna, and Somadatta, and Vahlika and the chief of the Sindhus, and the ruler of the Kalingas, and Sudakshina, the king of the Kamvojas, there were Yudhishthira, and Bhimasena and Savyasachin, and the twins, and if Satyaki of mighty energy, and Yuyutsu, that mighty car warrior, are stationed, who is there, O bull of Bharata's race, of such misdirected intelligence that would fight these?
Mbh.5.124.5487 Such conduct will be agreeable to and conducive to the happiness of Dhritarashtra who is endued with great wisdom, of grandsire Bhishma, Drona, the high-souled Kripa, Somadatta, wise Vahlika, Aswatthaman, Vikarna, Sanjaya, Vivingsati, and of many of thy kinsmen, O chastiser of foes, and many of thy friends also.
Mbh.5.124.5529 There are also Bhishma, and Drona, and this Karna, and Kripa, and Bhurisrava, and Somadatta, and Aswatthaman, and Jayadratha.
Mbh.5.127.5622 Let alone the Pandavas, O slayer of Madhu, the very gods are not competent to vanquish Bhishma, Kripa, Drona and Karna, in battle.
Mbh.5.128.5664 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words of his brother, Dhritarashtra's son, wicked, shameless, disobedient, disrespectful, and vain Suyodhana, breathing heavily like a great snake rose up from his seat in anger, and disregarding Vidura, and Dhritarashtra and the great king Vahlika, and Kripa, and Somadatta, and Bhishma, and Drona, and Janardana, in fact, all of them, went out of the court, And beholding that bull among men leave the court, his brother and all his counsellors, and all the kings, followed him.
Mbh.5.129.5711 O Duryodhana, obey thou the words of thy well-wishers, those words, viz, which that best of the Bharatas, thy father, and Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and Kshattri, have spoken.
Mbh.5.129.5750 Indeed, when Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Karna and Bhimasena and Dhananjaya and Dhrishtadyumna will be enraged, the population of the earth will be exterminated.
Mbh.5.129.5753 Of little understanding as thou art, thou thinkest that Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, all others will fight for thee with all their might.
Mbh.5.131.5852 Vaisampayana continued, The mighty-armed Janardana then addressed Dhritarashtra, Drona, grandsire Bhishma, Kshattri, Vahlika, and Kripa and said, Ye have yourselves witnessed all that hath happened in the assembly of the Kurus, viz, how wicked Duryodhana, like an uneducated wretch, left the court from anger, and how king Dhritarashtra also describeth himself to be powerless.
Mbh.5.131.5855 And those heroic bulls amongst the Bharatas, those mighty bowmen, viz, Bhishma, Drona, and Kripa, and Kshattri, and Aswatthaman and Vikarna, and that mighty car-warrior Yuyutsu, all began to follow him.
Mbh.5.141.6340 The disciples of Drona and Kripa, the son of Saradwat, will be the Sadasyas assisting priests.
Mbh.5.142.6371 When thou wilt behold in battle Arjuna checking Drona and Santanu's son and Kripa and king Suyodhana, and Jayadratha of Sindhu's race, all rushing fiercely to the encounter, then all signs of the Krita, the Treta and the Dwapara ages will disappear.
Mbh.5.142.6373 Returning hence, O Karna, say unto Drona and Santanu's son and Kripa that the present month is a delightful one, and that food, drink, and fuel are abundant now.
Mbh.5.143.6433 Know, O Kesava, that those three were Aswatthaman, Kripa, and Kritavarman of Satwata's race.
Mbh.5.156.6932 And placing an Akshauhini of troops under each of those best of men, viz, Kripa, Drona, Salya, Jayadratha, the king of the Sindhus, Sudakshina the ruler of the Kamvojas, Kritavarman, Drona's son Aswatthaman, Karna, Bhurisravas, Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and the mighty Vahlika, the king used to bring them daily before him and at all hours, and speak to them.
Mbh.5.159.7047 I will slay one of those heroes, viz, Drona and Kripa, and Bhishma, and Karna.
Mbh.5.159.7056 Having paid my respects, for battle's sake, to Rudra, Sakra, Vaisravana, Yama, Varuna, Pavaka, Kripa, Drona, and Madhava, and wielding that tough celestial bow of great energy called Gandiva, and accoutred with inexhaustible arrows and armed with celestial weapons, how can a person like me, O tiger among men, say, even unto Indra armed with the thunderbolt, such words as I am afraid,
Mbh.5.161.7148 Having obtained weapons again from Drona and Kripa, why, O bull of the Bharata race, dost thou rely on Vasudeva who belongeth to the same order of life as thyself and who is, not superior to thee in might'
Mbh.5.165.7483 And he pitted Arjuna against the Suta's son Karna, Bhima against Duryodhana, Dhrishtaketu against Salya, Uttamaujas against Gautama's son Kripa, Nakula against Kritavarman, Yuyudhana against the ruler of the Sindhus Jayadratha.
Mbh.5.166.7519 Ye all are disciples of Drona and of Kripa, the son of Saradwat, in arrows and other arms.
Mbh.5.167.7561 Kripa, the son of Saradwat is, O king, a leader of leaders of car-ranks.
Mbh.5.172.7765 Indeed, that best of kings, ever boasting of his feats in battle, should be regarded by thee, precisely as myself, Drona and Kripa are regarded by thee!
Mbh.5.196.8771 SECTION CXCVI Sanjaya said, When the night passed away and morning came, thy sons once more, in the midst of all the troops, asked their grandsire, saying, O son of Ganga, this army that is ready for fight, of Pandu's son, that abounds with men, elephants, and steeds, that is crowded with Maharathas, that is protected by these mighty bowmen endued with great strength, viz, Bhima and Arjuna and others headed by Dhrishtadyumna and all resembling the very regents of the world, that is invincible and incapable of being withstood, that resembles the unbounded sea, this sea of warriors incapable of being agitated by the very gods in battle, in how many days, O son of Ganga, O thou of great effulgence, canst thou annihilate it, and in what time can that mighty bowman, our preceptor Drona, in what time also the mighty Kripa, in what time Karna who taketh a pleasure in battle, and in what time that best of Brahmanas, viz, the son of Drona, can each annihilate it?
Mbh.5.196.8789 Then Saradwat's son Kripa said that he could annihilate the foe in two month's time.
Mbh.5.197.8799 Gautama Kripa indicated twice that period, as hath been heard by us.
Mbh.5.197.8810 Ganga's son knoweth not that weapon; nor Drona nor Gautama Kripa; nor Drona's son, O king!
Mbh.6.14.720 When Kripa, again, was near him, and Drona's son Aswatthaman also, how could Bhishma, that foremost of smiters be slain?
Mbh.6.17.867 That large force of the Easterners looking like the fleecy clouds of autumn was besides protected by the chief of the Angas Karna's son Vrishaketu and Kripa endued with great energy.
Mbh.6.17.877 And, O king, arrayed by Drona and the royal son of Santanu, and Drona's son, and Valhika, and Kripa, the Kaurava Vyuha consisting of many divisions of cars was such that the elephants formed its body; the kings, its head; and the steeds, its wings.
Mbh.6.25.1076 They are thyself, and Bhishma, and Karna, and Kripa who is ever victorious; and Aswatthaman and Vikarna, and Saumadatta, and Jayadratha
Mbh.6.43.2009 Having paid his respects to all his superiors such as Bhishma, Drona, and Kripa, and Salya also, he will fight the foe.
Mbh.6.43.2093 And saluting Kripa and walking round him, O king, Yudhishthira, accomplished in speech, said these words unto that warrior of great valour.
Mbh.6.43.2095 Kripa said, If having resolved on fight, thou hadst not come to me thus, I would have cursed thee, O king, for thy complete overthrow.
Mbh.6.43.2105 Understanding, however, what he intended to say, Gautama Kripa replied to him, saying, I am incapable of being slain, O king.
Mbh.6.45.2249 Kripa, the son of Saradwat, rushed against Vrihadkshatra, the ruler of the Kaikeyas.
Mbh.6.45.2250 And Kripa, O Bharata, enveloped him with a shower of arrows.
Mbh.6.47.2342 SECTION XLVII Sanjaya said, After the great part of the forenoon of that awful day had worn out, in that terrific engagement, O king, that was so destructive of foremost of men, Durmukha and Kritavarman, and Kripa, and Salya, and Vivinsati, urged by thy son, approached Bhishma and began to protect him.
Mbh.6.47.2355 And with another keen-edged arrow he cut in twain the gold-decked bow of Kripa.
Mbh.6.47.2363 And Kritavarman, and Kripa, and Salya also, O sire, piercing Arjuna's son, all failed to make him waver, for he stood firm like the Mainaka mountain.
Mbh.6.47.2380 And Bhima then, piercing Santanu's son Bhishma in that combat with three arrows, pierced Kripa with one, and Kritavarman with eight.
Mbh.6.48.2485 And Valhika and Kritavarman, and Kripa, and Salya also, O Bharata, and the son of Jarasandha, and Vikarna, and Chitrasena, and Vivinsati, with great speed, when speed was so necessary, surrounding him on all sides, poured on Sweta ceaseless showers of arrows.
Mbh.6.48.2517 And beholding them rushing to the rescue, with Drona and Salya and Kripa that hero of immeasurable soul Bhishma checked them all like the mountain resisting the force of the wind.
Mbh.6.49.2550 Nor Kripa, nor Gandhari liked it.
Mbh.6.50.2638 I shall now fight in battle against Bhishma, and Drona and Kripa and Salya and Jayadratha and all the proud monarchs on the Kuru side.
Mbh.6.51.2656 SECTION LI Sanjaya said, Beholding the mighty and terrible array called Krauncha formed by Pandu's son of immeasurable energy, thy son, approaching the preceptor, and Kripa, and Salya, O sire, and Somadatta's son, and Vikarna, and Aswatthaman also, and all his brothers too, headed by Dussasana, O Bharata, and other immeasurable heroes assembled there for battle, said these timely words, gladdening them all, Armed with various kinds of weapons, ye all are conversant with the meaning of the scriptures.
Mbh.6.51.2667 And Aswatthaman, and Kripa, and Kritavarman of Satwata's race, with a very large division of the troops, were, stationed at the rear of the army.
Mbh.6.52.2694 And this Drona, and Kripa and Salya and Vikarna, O Janardana, united with Dhritarashtra's sons headed by Duryodhana, and protected by this firm bowman, will slaughter the Panchalas.
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.6.52.2704 Thereupon he, the diadem-decked, of immeasurable soul, O bull of Bharata's race, in return pierced Bhishma with five and twenty, and Kripa with nine arrows, and Drona with sixty, O tiger among men, and Vikarna with three arrows; and Artayani with three arrows, and the king Duryodhana also with five.
Mbh.6.55.2926 SECTION LV Sanjaya said, When the forenoon of that day had passed away, O Bharata, and when the destruction of cars, elephants, steeds, foot-soldiers and horse-soldiers, proceeded on, the prince of Panchala engaged himself in battle with these three mighty car-warriors, viz, Drona's son, Salya, and the high-souled Kripa.
Mbh.6.55.2930 And, O bull of Bharata's race, he pierced Salya with five and twenty, and Kripa with nine arrows, and Aswatthaman with eight.
Mbh.6.55.2931 Drona's son, however, quickly pierced Arjuna's son with many winged arrows, and Salya pierced him with twelve, and Kripa with three sharp arrows.
Mbh.6.56.2973 And those renowned warriors, Aswatthaman and Kripa, supported by the Trigartas, the Matsyas, the Kekayas, and the Vatadhanas, were in its head.
Mbh.6.58.3069 When, O son of Kuru, thou art alive, and Drona, that foremost of persons conversant with weapons, along with his son and with all our other friends is alive, and then that mighty bowman Kripa also is alive, I do not regard it as at all creditable that my army should thus fly away.
Mbh.6.58.3070 I do not regard the Pandavas to be, by any means, a match for thee or for Drona, in battle, or for Drona's son, or for Kripa.
Mbh.6.59.3170 And Drona, and Vikarna, and Jayadratha, and Bhurisrava, and Kritavarman, and Kripa, and Srutayush and the ruler of the Amvashtas and Vinda and Anuvinda, Sudakshina and the westerners, and the diverse tribes of the Sauviras, the Vasatis, and the Kshudrakas, and the Malavas, all these, at the command of the royal son of Santanu, quickly approached Kiritin for battle.
Mbh.6.59.3261 Srutayush, the ruler of the Amvashtas, and Durmarshana, and Chitrasena, and Drona, and Kripa, and the ruler of the Sindhus, and Valhika, and Bhurisravas, and Salya, and Sala, O king, and other warriors by hundreds united together, along with Bhishma himself, have on battle, by the prowess of his own arms, been vanquished today by the angry son of Pritha, viz, Kiritin, that one mighty car-warrior in the world'
Mbh.6.60.3290 And so against that son of Indra who was like unto Indra himself, rushed many other warriors headed by Drona and Kripa and Salya and Vivinsati and Duryodhana and also Somadatta's son, O king.
Mbh.6.65.3531 And what old Bhishma and Drona, and Kripa, and Suvala's son, and Jayadratha, and that mighty bowman, viz, Drona's son and Vikarna of great strength do?
Mbh.6.65.3556 Duryodhana said, Drona and thou, and Salya, and Kripa, and Drona's son, and Kritavarman the son of Hridika, and Sudakshina the ruler of the Kamvojas, and Bhurisravas, and Vikarna, and Bhagadatta of exceeding prowess, are all regarded as mighty car-warriors.
Mbh.6.71.3816 And Kripa and Kritavarman both rushed against Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.6.72.3841 And Dhananjaya encountered Drona and Kripa, and Vikarna and many other kings, brave in battle, all mighty bowmen endued with great strength, as also that mighty bowman the ruler of the Sindhus supported by his friends and kinsmen and many kings of the west and the south also, O bull of Bharata's race.
Mbh.6.73.3917 Then Kripa, taking Lakshmana up on his own car, bore him away from the conflict, in the very sight of all the troops.
Mbh.6.75.3974 And Aswatthaman and Kripa, O monarch, formed its two eyes.
Mbh.6.75.3990 And thy army also, with Bhishma and Kripa and Drona and Salya and Duryodhana, and others, shone like the firmament spangled with the planets.
Mbh.6.76.4026 And that host is protected by Drona and Bhishma and by Kritavarman and Kripa and Dussasana, and others headed by Jayadratha.
Mbh.6.80.4179 And then that great car-warrior, viz, Kripa, O king, caused the vindictive Duryodhana, that son of Kuru's race, of immeasurable energy, to mount on his own car.
Mbh.6.82.4293 And Chekitana in that battle fought against Kripa.
Mbh.6.85.4463 Baffling all those arrows, Kripa the son of Saradwat, pierced Chekitana in return who was fighting with great care, O king, with arrows in that battle.
Mbh.6.85.4465 Kripa then, O monarch, slew Chekitana's steeds, as also both the warriors that protected the latter's wings.
Mbh.6.86.4521 Pierced with arrows by Kripa and Sala and Chitrasena, O lord, the Pandavas, inflamed with rage, resembled the gods pierced with arrows by the united Daityas in days of old.
Mbh.6.87.4604 And Drona, and Drona's son, and Kripa, and Salya, and Kritavarman of the Satwata race, surrounding the whole Dhartarashtra army, proceeded towards their tents.
Mbh.6.88.4625 Behind Duryodhana proceeded Kripa the son of Saradwat.
Mbh.6.90.4708 SECTION XC Dhritarashtra said, Beholding my sons, so many in number, O Sanjaya, slain by a single person, what did Bhishma and Drona and Kripa do in battle
Mbh.6.90.4711 When my sons staying in the midst of those unretreating heroes, viz, Drona and Bhishma, and the high-souled Kripa, and Somadatta's heroic son and Bhagadatta, and Aswatthaman also, O son, and other brave warriors, are being still slain in battle, what can it be said save the result of fate
Mbh.6.90.4750 And it was thus, O Bharata, that the Pandava host suffered destruction when Bhishma the son of Santanu, and Drona that foremost of car-warriors, and Aswatthaman, and Kripa, and Kritavarman, were inflamed with wrath.
Mbh.6.93.4912 They met Duryodhana and Somadatta and Valhika and Jayadratha; and Kripa and Bhurisravas and Salya, and the two princes of Avanti along with Vrihadvala, and Aswatthaman and Vikarna, and Chitrasena and Vivinsati.
Mbh.6.93.4922 And he pierced Kripa with one arrow, and Chitrasena with three.
Mbh.6.95.4996 Kripa and Bhurisravas and Salya, and Drona's son and Vivingsati, and Chitrasena and Vikarna, and the ruler of the Sindhus, and Vrihadvala, and those two mighty bowmen, viz, the two princes of Avanti, surrounded the Kuru king.
Mbh.6.96.5048 Myself, and Drona, and Kripa, and Drona's son, and Kritavarman of the Satwata race, and Salya, and Somadatta's son, and that mighty car-warrior Vikarna, and thy heroic brothers headed by Dussasana, will all, for thy sake, battle against that mighty Rakshasas.
Mbh.6.97.5144 Then Santanu's son, Bhishma, and that foremost of car-warriors, viz, Kripa, and Bhagadatta, and Susarman, all went towards Dhananjaya.
Mbh.6.98.5200 Then king Duryodhana, addressing the Suta's son and the mighty Sakuni, said unto all those counsellors of his, Drona, Bhishma, and Kripa, and Salya and Somadatta's son do not resist the Parthas.
Mbh.6.99.5321 Let our maternal uncle Sakuni, and Salya, and Kripa, and Drona, and Vivingsati, carefully protect the son of Ganga.
Mbh.6.100.5335 Kripa, and Kritavarman, and that mighty car-warrior Saivya, and Sakuni, and the ruler of the Sindhus, and Sudakshina the ruler of the Kamvojas, these all, together with Bhishma and thy sons, O Bharata, took up their stations in the van of the whole army and in the very front of the Kaurava array.
Mbh.6.101.5381 Confounding Kripa and Drona and mighty son of Drona, as also the ruler of the Sindhus, the great bowman moved on the field of battle with great activity and skill.
Mbh.6.102.5458 Then Saradwat's son Kripa, O king, pierced Arjuna who was staying in front of Bhishma, with five and twenty shafts.
Mbh.6.102.5459 Thereupon, like a tiger attacking an elephant, Satyaki, approaching Kripa, pierced him with many whetted shafts from desire of doing what was agreeable to the Pandavas.
Mbh.6.102.5462 The fiery son of Drona, however, excited with wrath, cut in twain that arrow as it coursed impetuously towards Kripa, resembling Indra's bolt in effulgence.
Mbh.6.103.5509 Then Duryodhana and that foremost of car-warriors, viz, Kripa, and Aswatthaman, and Salya, and Sudakshina, the ruler of the Kamvojas, and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Valhika supported by the Valhikas, with a large number of cars surrounded Partha on all sides.
Mbh.6.104.5574 Hearing then these words uttered by all the combatants, thy son Duryodhana, that offender against all, addressed Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Salya, O Bharata, saying, Fight ye without boastfulness.
Mbh.6.109.5925 And behind Bhagadatta were Kripa and Kritavarman.
Mbh.6.109.5975 Drona, and Drona's son, and Kripa, and Suyodhana, and Chitrasena, and Vikarna, and Jayadratha the ruler of the Sindhus, Vinda and Anuvinda.
Mbh.6.111.6029 And so, O king, Kripa the son of Saradwat, excited with rage, resisted Sahadeva proceeding towards Bhishma's car.
Mbh.6.112.6105 Like an infuriate elephant in the forest rushing against an infuriate compeer, Kripa, the son of Saradwat, proceeded against Sahadeva who was advancing upon Bhishma.
Mbh.6.112.6106 And Kripa, brave in battle, quickly struck that mighty car-warrior, viz, the son of Madri, with seventy shafts decked with gold.
Mbh.6.112.6108 And cutting off his bow, Sahadeva then pierced Kripa with nine arrows.
Mbh.6.112.6109 Taking up then, in that battle, another bow capable of bearing a great strain Kripa, excited with rage and desirous of Bhishma's life, cheerfully struck Madri's son in that battle with ten shafts.
Mbh.6.112.6110 And so the son of Pandu, in return, desirous of Bhishma's death, excited with rage, struck the wrathful Kripa in the chest with many shafts.
Mbh.6.114.6190 SECTION CXIV Sanjaya said, Hearing these words of the high-souled Drona, Bhagadatta and Kripa and Salya and Kritavarman, and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Jayadratha the ruler of the Sindhus, and Chitrasena and Vikarna and Durmarshana and others, these ten warriors of thy army, supported by a large host consisting of many nationalities, fought with Bhimasena, desirous of winning high renown in the battle for Bhishma's sake.
Mbh.6.114.6191 And Salya struck Bhima with nine arrows, and Kritavarman struck him with three, and Kripa with nine.
Mbh.6.114.6198 And after thus cutting off his bow, he pierced Kripa once more with seven arrows.
Mbh.6.114.6210 And Kripa and Kritavarman and the valiant Bhagadatta, and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Chitrasena, and Durmarshana, and Vikarna, and the valiant ruler of the Sindhus also, in that battle, These chastisers of foes, all quickly pierced Bhima for the sake of Salya.
Mbh.6.114.6221 Of great renown, he then pierced Kripa with many arrows, and then, displaying great dexterity, he cut off with a keen-edged shaft the bow, with arrow fixed thereon, of the high-souled Kritavarman.
Mbh.6.114.6229 And Kripa, O king, hurled at him a Sataghni, and Salya an arrow.
Mbh.6.115.6246 And he pierced Susarman and Kripa with three arrows each.
Mbh.6.115.6249 And Salya, and that foremost of car-warriors, viz, Kripa, both pierced Jishnu, O monarch, with diverse arrows capable of penetrating into the very vitals.
Mbh.6.115.6261 Kripa, and Kritavarman, and Jayadratha, the ruler of the Sindhus, and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, these did not forsake the battle.
Mbh.6.118.6475 And piercing Kripa and Vikarna and Salya with many arrows made wholly of iron, Kunti's son owning white steeds deprived all of them of their cars.
Mbh.6.118.6476 Thus deprived of their cars and vanquished in battle by Savyasachin, Kripa and Salya, O sire, and Dussasana, and Vikarna and Vivingsati, all fled away.
Mbh.6.119.6504 Then Salya and Kripa, and Chitrasena, O Bharata, and Dussasana, and Vikarna, those heroes mounted on their bright cars, caused the Pandava host to tremble.
Mbh.6.120.6681 And the Kurus headed by Kripa, and Duryodhana, sighed and wept.
