Mbh.6.82.4258 SECTION LXXXII Sanjaya said, O chief of the Bharatas, Ganga's son, once more addressing thy son who was plunged in thought, told him these delightful words, Myself and Drona and Salya and Kritavarman of Satwata's race, and Aswatthaman and Vikarna and Bhagadatta and Suvala's son and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Valhika with the Valhikas and the mighty king of the Trigartas and the invincible ruler of the Magadhas, Vrihadvala the king of the Kosalas, and Chitrasena and Vivingsati and many thousands of car-warriors graced with tall standards, a large number of country-born steeds well-mounted with excellent horse-soldiers and many infuriate elephants of large size with temporal juice issuing from their mouths and cheeks, and many brave foot-soldiers armed with diverse weapons and born in diverse realms, are all prepared to do battle for thy sake
Mbh.6.83.4367 Kritavarman, in that battle, covered with his arrows that mighty car-warrior Bhima.
Mbh.6.83.4369 Then that chastiser of foes viz, Bhimasena, excited with wrath, and laughing the while, sped some shafts at Kritavarman.

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.6.90.4750 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.6.96.5048 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.6.112.6119 The son of Prishata, however, having pierced Kritavarman with five shafts made wholly of iron, once more, struck him quickly in the centre of the chest fifty 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.6.114.6196 The brave Pandava, that slayer of hostile heroes, pierced Salya with seven arrows, and Kritavarman with eight.
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.6.114.6222 Then Kritavarman, that scorcher of foes, taking up another bow, struck Vrikodara between his eyebrows with a long arrow.
Mbh.6.114.6223 Bhima, however, in that battle, having pierced Salya with nine arrows made wholly of iron, and Bhagadatta with three, and Kritavarman with eight, pierced each of the others with Gautama at their head, with two arrows.
Mbh.6.115.6247 And in that battle the Atiratha Arjuna, afflicting thy host, struck the ruler of the Pragjyotishas, and Jayadratha the king of the Sindhus, and Chitrasena, and Vikarna, and Kritavarman, and Durmarshana, O monarch, and those two mighty car-warriors, viz, the princes of Avanti, each with three arrows winged with the feathers of the Kanka and the peacock.
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.6.120.6562 Thereupon mighty car-warriors, seven in number, viz, Drona and Kritavarman, and Jayadratha the ruler of the Sindhus, and Bhurisravas, and Sala, and Salya, and Bhagadatta could not brook that act of Arjuna.
Mbh.7.7.218 And Kripa, and Kritavarman, and Chitrasena, and Vivinsati headed by Duhsasana, strove vigorously for protecting the left wing.
Mbh.7.14.597 Satyaki, laughing the while, pierced Kritavarman in the centre of the chest with a long arrow.
Mbh.7.14.600 Like the swiftly-coursing winds failing to move a mountain, Kritavarman was unable to move Satyaki or make him tremble.
Mbh.7.15.693 Then the mighty car-warrior Kritavarman quickly approached Salya who, deprived of his senses, was breathing hard as he lay on the field.
Mbh.7.15.694 And beholding him, O king, struck violently with the mace, and writhing like a snake, and deprived of his senses in a swoon, the mighty car-warrior Kritavarman, taking him upon his car, quickly bore the ruler of Madras away from the field.
Mbh.7.20.895 And Kritavarman and the illustrious Kripa formed the two eyes of that Garuda.
Mbh.7.35.1813 And Drona, and Drona's son, and Kripa and Karna and Kritavarman and Suvala's son, Vrihadvala, and the ruler of the Madras, and Bhuri, and Bhurisravas, and Sala, and Paurava and Vrishasena, shooting sharp shafts, checked Subhadra's son by means of those arrowy showers.
Mbh.7.35.1827 And Vivinsati, pierced him with seventy shafts, and Kritavarman with seven.
Mbh.7.35.1844 And Aswatthaman struck him with twenty, and Kritavarman with seven.
Mbh.7.37.1883 Careering with great speed like a circle of fire, he pierced Drona and Karna, and Kripa, and Salya and Drona's son, and Kritavarman of the Bhoja race, and Vrihadvala, and Duryodhana, and Somadatta, and mighty Sakuni, and diverse kings and diverse princes and diverse bodies of troops.
Mbh.7.44.2097 Beholding them broken and routed, Drona and Drona's son, and Vrihadvala, and Kripa, and Duryodhana, and Karna, and Kritavarman, and Suvala's son Sakuni, rushed in great wrath against the unvanquished son of Subhadra.
Mbh.7.44.2113 Then Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and Drona's son and Vrihadvala, and Kritavarman, the son of Hridika, these six car-warriors, -encompassed Abhimanyu.
Mbh.7.45.2124 Then Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and Drona's son, and Vrihadvala and Kritavarman, the son of Hridika, these six car-warriors, encompassed him.
Mbh.7.45.2129 And piercing Kritavarman with eighty shafts, he pierced Kripa with sixty.
Mbh.7.45.2141 And Karna struck him with two and twenty broad-headed arrows and Kritavarman struck him with four and ten.
Mbh.7.46.2204 He, of Bhoja's race viz, Kritavarman then slew his steeds, and Kripa slew his two Parshni charioteers.
Mbh.7.71.3103 Then Drona, Kripa and Karna and Drona's son, and the king of the Kosalas, and Kritavarman, these six car-warriors surrounded the son of Subhadra.
Mbh.7.85.3774 At the mouth of that needle, the great bowman Kritavarman took up his stand.
Mbh.7.85.3775 Next to Kritavarman, O sire, stood the ruler of the Kamvojas and Jalasandha.
Mbh.7.88.3920 Then, O King, Jaya, and Kritavarman of the Satwata race, and the ruler of the Kamvojas, and Srutayus, began to oppose the progress of Dhananjaya.
Mbh.7.89.3945 Indeed, avoiding the invincible Drona who stood immovable like the Mainaka mountain, Arjuna took up his position between Kritavarman and Sudakshina the ruler of the Kamvojas.
Mbh.7.89.3951 Then Kritavarman, that mighty car-warrior, taking up another bow, pierced Arjuna in the chest, O Bharata, with five arrows.
Mbh.7.89.3954 Beholding the son of Kunti obstructed before the car of Kritavarman, he of Vrishni's race thought that no time should be wasted.
Mbh.7.89.3955 Then Krishna addressing Partha, said, Do not show any mercy to Kritavarman!
Mbh.7.89.3957 Then Arjuna, stupefying Kritavarman with his arrows, proceeded, on his swift steeds, to the division of the Kamvojas.
Mbh.7.89.3958 Seeing Arjuna of white steeds penetrate into the Kamvoja force, Kritavarman became filled with wrath.
Mbh.7.89.3960 Indeed, Kritavarman, with his arrows resisted those two Panchala princes as they advanced, following Arjuna for protecting his wheels.
Mbh.7.89.3961 Then Kritavarman, the ruler of the Bhojas, pierced them both with sharp shafts, striking Yudhamanyu with three, and Uttamaujas with four.
Mbh.7.89.3965 Then those two warriors, taking up and stringing two other bows, began to pierce Kritavarman.
Mbh.7.89.3967 But those two princes, resisted by Kritavarman, obtained no admittance into the Dhritarashtra host, although those bulls among men struggled vigorously.
Mbh.7.89.3969 That slayer of foes, however, slew not Kritavarman although he had got him within reach.
Mbh.7.91.4151 He by whom Hridika's son Kritavarman, the ruler of the Bhojas, and thyself equal unto a celestial, have both been vanquished by the power of his weapons, he by whom Srutayus hath been slain, as also Sudakshina, and king Srutayus too, he by whom both Srutayus and Achyutayus and myriads of Mlecchas also have been slain, how can I contend in battle with that invincible son of Pandu, that accomplished master of weapons, who is even like an all-consuming fire?
Mbh.7.92.4235 One of these retreated towards Kritavarman, the chief of the Bhojas; another towards Jalasandha; and fiercely slaughtered the while by the Pandavas, proceeded towards Drona himself.
Mbh.7.94.4303 Bhimasena rushed against the mighty-armed Jalasandha, and Yudhishthira, at the head of his troops rushed, in that battle, against Kritavarman.
Mbh.7.98.4533 Indeed, beholding them freed from Drona and Kritavarman, thy warriors regarded the colour of Partha's and Krishna's face to be dreadful; and thy men then, from all sides, set up a loud wail.
Mbh.7.108.5152 Drona at the head of his troops, and Kritavarman also, in battle, will not succeed in beating us or afflicting me.
Mbh.7.110.5307 At this, wrathful Kritavarman came forward to resist Satyaki.
Mbh.7.110.5308 The valiant Satyaki striking the advancing Kritavarman with six shafts, quickly slew his four steeds with four other shafts.
Mbh.7.110.5309 And once again, he pierced Kritavarman in the centre of the chest with four other shafts.
Mbh.7.110.5310 And once again, he pierced Kritavarman in the centre of the chest with sixteen straight shafts of great speed.
Mbh.7.110.5311 Thus encountered; O monarch; with many shafts of fierce energy by him of the Satwata race, Kritavarman was unable to brook it.
Mbh.7.110.5314 Then, O king, Kritavarman, that warrior equipped with the highest weapons, shooting many shafts, cut off the bow of Satyaki with arrows fixed thereon.
Mbh.7.110.5316 Upon his bow being broken, the foremost of mighty men, viz, Satyaki, hurled a dart at the right arm of Kritavarman.
Mbh.7.110.5317 And taking up and drawing a tougher bow, Yuyudhana quickly shot at his foe, shafts by hundreds and thousands and entirely shrouded Kritavarman and his car with that arrowy downpour.
Mbh.7.110.5320 At this, the steeds of Kritavarman, deprived of a driver, ran away with great speed.
Mbh.7.110.5324 Resting for a short space of time, Kritavarman then urged those good steeds of his.
Mbh.7.110.5326 Satyaki, however, had by that time, left him behind, while Kritavarman himself now rushed against Bhimasena without pursuing Satyaki.
Mbh.7.110.5332 The heroic Kritavarman, O king, displaying his prowess, resisted all those warriors who, although they had become a little heartless, struggled yet with great vigour.
Mbh.7.111.5363 Drona constitutes the fathomless cave of that ocean, Kritavarman its vast vortex.
Mbh.7.111.5415 The mighty car-warrior Kritavarman, however, alone, resisted, in that battle the Pandavas thus rushing in fury and wrath with their followers against thy host.
Mbh.7.111.5418 Then the mighty-armed Bhima, piercing Kritavarman with three shafts, blew his conch, gladdening all the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.111.5422 Then Kritavarman, O king, pierced every one of those great car-warriors with five shafts, and Bhima again with seven.
Mbh.7.111.5426 Beholding Bhimasena in that condition, the Parthas headed by king Yudhishthira the just afflicted Kritavarman, O king, shooting at him many shafts.
Mbh.7.111.5428 Then mighty Bhimasena recovering consciousness, took up in that battle a dart made of steel and equipped with a golden staff, and hurled it with great speed from his own car at the car of Kritavarman.
Mbh.7.111.5429 That dart resembling a snake freed from its slough, hurled from Bhima's hands, fierce-looking, blazed forth as it proceeded towards Kritavarman.
Mbh.7.111.5434 Then O king, Bhima, of terrible might, struck Kritavarman, in the centre of the chest with five shafts, in consequence of thy evil policy, O monarch!
Mbh.7.111.5436 Then that mighty bowman, viz, Kritavarman, filled with rage, smilingly struck Bhimasena with three shafts, and having struck him forcibly, pierced in return every one of those great car-warriors struggling vigorously in battle, with three shafts.
Mbh.7.111.5440 Whirling his large shield, decked with gold, Sikhandin sent that sword towards the car of Kritavarman.
Mbh.7.111.5443 Meanwhile, those mighty car-warriors quickly and deeply pierced Kritavarman with their shafts in that battle.
Mbh.7.111.5448 Indeed, the heroic Kritavarman rushed at Sikhandin, displaying his might, like a tiger at an elephant.
Mbh.7.111.5452 And Kritavarman in that battle pierced that mighty car-warrior viz, Yajnasena's son, with three and seventy shafts and once more with seven.
Mbh.7.111.5456 The Parthas, beholding Sikhandin lying senseless on the terrace of his car, soon encompassed Kritavarman in that battle with crowds of cars.
Mbh.7.111.5457 The mighty car-warrior, Kritavarman, then achieved a most wonderful feat there, inasmuch as, alone, he held in check all the Parthas with their followers.
Mbh.7.112.5463 After the rout of that force by the high-souled son of Hridika, and upon the Parthas being humiliated with shame and thy troops elated with joy, he that became protector of the Pandavas who were solicitous of protection while sinking in that fathomless sea of distress, that hero, viz, the grandson of Sini, hearing that fierce uproar, of thy army in that terrible fight, quickly turned back and proceeded against Kritavarman.
Mbh.7.112.5464 Hridika's son, Kritavarman, then excited with wrath, covered the grandson of Sini with clouds of sharp shafts.
Mbh.7.112.5466 The grandson of Sini then quickly sped at Kritavarman a sharp and broad-headed arrow in the encounter and then four other arrows.
Mbh.7.112.5467 These tour arrows slew the steeds of Kritavarman, and the other cut off Kritavarman's bow.
Mbh.7.112.5472 Having, O monarch, forded the ocean constituted by Drona's division, and filled with joy at having vanquished Kritavarman in battle, that hero then addressed his charioteer, saying, Proceed slowly without fear'
Mbh.7.113.5551 Hearing that uproar, the mighty car-warrior Kritavarman quickly proceeded to that spot where the puissant Madhava.
Mbh.7.113.5553 And Kritavarman proceeded, shaking his bow, and urging his steeds, and urging his charioteer with the words, Go with speed, Go with speed'
Mbh.7.113.5554 Beholding Kritavarman rushing towards him like the Destroyer himself with wide-open mouth, Yuyudhana, O king, addressed his driver, saying, That Kritavarman, armed with arrows, is rushing in his car towards me with speed.
Mbh.7.113.5557 Kritavarman pierced Sini's grandson with six and twenty whetted arrows of keen points, and the latter's driver with five arrows.
Mbh.7.113.5559 Owning a standard decked with gold, and adorned with golden mail, Kritavarman, shaking his formidable bow, whose staff was decked with gold, thus checked, Yuyudhana with shafts equipped with golden wings.
Mbh.7.113.5560 Then the grandson of Sini, desirous of seeing Dhananjaya, sped with great activity eight arrows at Kritavarman.
Mbh.7.113.5563 Indeed, Satyaki, then aiming another arrow of golden wings, that emitted blazing flames and resembled an angry snake, or the rod of the Destroyer himself, pierced Kritavarman.
Mbh.7.113.5565 Afflicted with the shafts of Satwata, and bathed in blood in that battle, Kritavarman throwing aside his bow with arrow, fell upon his car.
Mbh.7.113.5567 Having thus resisted Kritavarman who resembled the thousand-armed Arjuna of old, or Ocean himself of immeasurable might, Satyaki proceeded onwards.
Mbh.7.118.5748 Numerous heroes, of whom Kritavarman is the first, contending vigorously in battle, could not slay Yuyudhana.
Mbh.7.127.6357 Thou mayest remember, O king, that formerly while Arjuna penetrated thy host from desire of battle, those two princes, O monarch, had been checked in their progress by Kritavarman.
Mbh.7.138.6916 Having with his shafts crushed Drona himself and Kritavarman of the Bhoja race, this Satyaki cometh to thee, O Phalguna!
Mbh.7.141.7121 SECTION CXLIII Dhritarashtra said, Unvanquished by Drona, and Radha's son and Vikarna and Kritavarman, how could the heroic Satyaki, never before checked in battle, having after his promise to Yudhishthira crossed the ocean of the Kaurava troops, being humiliated by the Kuru warrior Bhurisravas and forcibly thrown on the ground'
Mbh.7.144.7531 Drona's son and Kritavarman and other mighty car-warriors, as also hundreds of foremost Kshatriyas, were all vanquished by Satyaki with only one bow.
Mbh.7.153.8146 Karna also, and Vrishasena and Kripa, and Nila, and the Northerners, and Kritavarman, and the sons of Purumitra, and Duhsasana, and Nikumbha, and Kundabhedin, and Puranjaya and Dridharatha, and Hemakampana, and Salya, and Aruni, and Indrasena, and Sanjaya, and Vijaya, and Jaya, and Purakrathin, and Jayavarman, and Sudarsana, these will follow thee, with sixty thousand foot-soldiers.
Mbh.7.155.8338 Dhrishtadyumna, and Sikhandin and Janamejaya, the son of Durmuksha and Chandrasen, and Madrasen, and Kritavarman, Dhruva, and Dhara and Vasuchandra, and Sutejana, the sons of Drupada, and Drupada himself, conversant with high and mighty weapons, and the king of the Matsyas also, with his younger brothers, all resolutely struggling for their sake, and Gajanika, and Virabhadra, and Sudarsana, and Srutadhwaja, and Valanika, and Jayanika, and Jayaprya, and Vijaya and Labhalaksha, and Jayaswa, and Kamaratha, and the handsome brothers of Virata, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the five sons of Draupadi, and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, are all fighting for the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.162.8761 Kritavarman, the son of Hridika, rushed against Yudhishthira, as the latter was advancing against Drona, like an infuriated elephant against an infuriated compeer.
Mbh.7.162.8779 Kritavarman, the son of Hridika, excited with wrath, resisted Dharma's son, Yudhishthira, like continents resisting the swelling sea.
Mbh.7.162.8781 Then Kritavarman, O sire, excited with wrath, cut off with a broad-headed shaft, the bow of king Yudhishthira the just and pierced the latter with seven arrows.
Mbh.7.162.8786 With the twinkling of an eye, Kritavarman, taking up another bow, pierced the son of Pandu with sixty arrows and once more with ten.
Mbh.7.162.8787 Of immeasurable soul, the son of Pandu, then placing his large bow on his car, sped at Kritavarman a dart resembling a snake.
Mbh.7.162.8790 Then brave Kritavarman, that great car-warrior among the Vrishnis, within less than the twinkling of an eye, made Yudhishthira steedless and driverless and carless.
Mbh.7.162.8798 His armour cut off, himself deprived of car and afflicted with the shafts of Kritavarman, Dharma's son, Yudhishthira, quickly retreated from battle.
Mbh.7.162.8799 The mighty car-warrior Kritavarman, then, having vanquished Yudhishthira, the son of Dharma, once more began to protect the wheel of Drona's car
Mbh.7.169.9130 Then Madhava, with a broad-headed shafts suddenly cut off in that encounter the formidable bow of thy son in the handle, Deprived of both his car and bow, that puissant ruler of men then mounted quickly upon the bright car of Kritavarman.
Mbh.7.181.9894 And while fallen into such distress, Kritavarman most cruelly slew the steeds and the two Parshni drivers of the boy.
Mbh.7.185.10168 During that great carnage of the Kshatriyas on earth, on that field of battle, enhancing the terrors of the timid and looking like a crematorium neither Karna, nor Drona, nor Arjuna, nor Yudhishthira, nor Bhimasena, nor the twins, nor the Panchala prince, nor Satyaki, nor Duhsasana, nor Drona's son, nor Duryodhana nor Suvala's son, nor Kripa, nor the ruler of the Madras, nor Kritavarman, nor others, nor my own self, nor the earth, nor points of the compass, could be seen, O king, for all of them, mingled with the troops, were shrouded by clouds of dust.
Mbh.7.187.10264 At the time Hridika's son, Kritavarman, with three of his uterine brothers, appeared on the scene and attempted to oppose Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.7.191.10590 Kritavarman, O king, also fled away, borne by his swift steeds, and surrounded by the remnant of his Bhoja, Kalinga, Aratta, and Valhika troops.
Mbh.7.198.11119 And Kritavarman pierced him with ten, and Karna with fifty.
Mbh.14.60.2783 With Kripa and the Bhoja prince Kritavarman, the son of Drona represents the unslain remnant of the Kaurava army.
Mbh.14.66.2966 Accompanied by the son of Rukmini, by Yuyudhana, by Charudeshna, by Samva, by Gada, by Kritavarman, by the heroic Sarana, by Nisatha, and by the Unmukha, Vasudeva came with Valadeva at the head of the train, with Subhadra also accompanying him.
Mbh.14.86.3832 He was accompanied by Yuyudhana and Pradyumna and Gada, and Nisatha and Samvo and Kritavarman.
