MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.94.5201 And it has been heard by us that Kuru's highly intelligent wife, Vahini, brought forth five sons, viz, Avikshit, Bhavishyanta, Chaitraratha, Muni and the celebrated Janamejaya.
Mbh.1.102.5707 SECTION CII Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, O thou of Kuru's race, after Chitrangada was slain, his successor Vichitravirya being a minor, Bhishma ruled the kingdom, placing himself under the command of Satyavati.
Mbh.1.103.5786 And turning her eyes to religion, and to the paternal and maternal lines of the Kurus, she addressed Bhishma and said The funeral cake, the achievements, and the perpetuation of the line of the virtuous and celebrated Santanu of Kuru's race, all now depend on thee.
Mbh.1.105.5919 And when Bhishma had said this, O thou of Kuru's race, Kali Satyavati thought of the Muni Dwaipayana and Dwaipayana who was then engaged in interpreting the Vedas, learning that he was being called up by his mother, came instantly unto her without anybody's knowing it.
Mbh.1.121.6479 Then I shall ascend to heaven with thee; O prince of Kuru's race, receive me in thy embrace for begetting children.
Mbh.1.124.6671 I do not grieve, O thou of Kuru's race, that Gandhari hath obtained a hundred sons.
Mbh.1.125.6720 And, O thou of Kuru's race unrestrained by the fear of the Rishi's curse and impelled by fate, the monarch, overpowered by passion, forcibly sought the embraces of Madri, as if he wished to put an end to his own life.
Mbh.1.129.6942 O bull of Kuru's race, do thou bath in this holy and auspicious water and return home.
Mbh.1.130.6973 Then, O thou of Kuru's race, the chief of the gods summoned a celestial damsel named Janapadi and sent her unto Gautama, saying, Do thy best to disturb the austerities of Gautama'
Mbh.1.133.7110 O thou of Kuru's race, from our earliest years we had studied together and, indeed, he was my friend from boyhood, always speaking and doing what was agreeable to me.
Mbh.1.147.7838 Vichitravirya, the son of Santanu, and the royal sage Pandu of Kuru's race both cherished us of old with fatherly care.
Mbh.1.148.7888 Or, perhaps, our grandfather Bhishma and the other bull of Kuru's race, regarding indignation at such a sinful act to be virtuous, may become wrathful.
Mbh.1.170.8705 O heroic scion of Kuru's race, alms also are not now obtainable here as easily as before.
Mbh.1.172.8826 O tiger in Kuru's race, O son of Pritha, I also know Dharma, Vayu, Sakra, the twin Aswins, and Pandu, these six perpetuators of Kuru race, these excellent celestials and human progenitors of you all.
Mbh.1.172.8829 For, O thou of Kuru's race, it behoveth no man endued with might of arms to bear with patience any ill usage in the sight of his wife.
Mbh.1.172.8843 Know, therefore, O perpetuator of Kuru's race, that the kingdom lasteth for ever in which Brahmanas have power
Mbh.1.173.8859 And, O thou of Kuru's race, Vivaswat then resolved to bestow his daughter on that best of kings, viz, Samvarana, the scion of a race of world-wide fame.
Mbh.1.174.8891 And as the monarch fell down, that maiden of sweet smiles and prominent and round hips appeared again before him, and smiling sweetly, said unto that perpetuator of Kuru's race these honeyed words, Rise, rise, O chastiser of foes!
Mbh.1.175.8957 And that mighty bowman, that foremost one in Kuru's race having his curiosity greatly excited by what he heard of Vasishtha's ascetic power, asked the Gandharva, saying, I desire to hear of the Rishi whom thou hast mentioned as Vasishtha.
Mbh.1.175.8965 And, O prince of Kuru's race, it was by obtaining Vasishtha, that best of Rishis as their priest, that those monarchs performed many grand sacrifices.
Mbh.1.178.9113 Beholding this, O thou of Kuru's race, the distressed Muni thinking that he would certainly be drowned if he fell into the waters of that river, he tied himself strongly with several cords and flung himself, under the influence of grief, into the current of that mighty stream.
Mbh.1.178.9163 And, O prince of Kuru's race, the city filled as it was with joyous and healthy souls, in consequence of his presence, looked gay like Amaravati with the presence of the chief of the celestials.
Mbh.1.196.9755 Drupada answered, O scion of Kuru's race, it hath been directed that one man may have many wives.
Mbh.1.204.10103 Know, O thou of Kuru's race, that as long as those heroes live, the wielder of the thunder himself cannot deprive them of their ancestral share in the kingdom.
Mbh.1.206.10154 What that foremost one of Kuru's race, viz, Bhishma, the son of Santanu, hath said, is excellent and is for thy good.
Mbh.1.206.10164 O scion of Kuru's rate, this is my firm conviction that these two, acquainted with all rules of morality, will never, tempted by wealth, utter anything betraying a spirit of partisanship.
Mbh.1.206.10183 This kindly behaviour of thine, O monarch, towards the Pandavas will be an act of great benefit to us, protecting the lives of us all that belong to Kuru's race, and leading to the growth of the whole Kshatriya order!
Mbh.1.215.10519 SECTION CCXVI Arjuna-vanavasa Parva continued Vaisampayana said, When that spreader of the renown of Kuru's race, the strong-armed Arjuna, set out for the forest, Brahmanas conversant with the Vedas walked behind that illustrious hero to a certain distance.
Mbh.1.215.10539 Afflicted as I am by the god of desire on account of thee, O thou of Kuru's race, gratify me today by giving thyself up to me'
Mbh.1.216.10576 That foremost one of Kuru's race saw many regions of sacred waters one after another.
Mbh.1.217.10616 It is for this, O son of Kuru's race, that these waters are shunned'
Mbh.1.222.10850 And the great warriors of the Vrishni and the Andhaka races set out with Rama in the van, carrying with them those gems of the purest rays that had been given them by those foremost ones of Kuru's race.
Mbh.1.234.11426 SECTION CCXXXV Khandava-daha Parva continued Vaisampayana said, O thou of Kuru's race, the Rishi Mandapala became very anxious about his children, although he had spoken of them to the god of fierce rays.
Mbh.1.235.11495 O prince of Kuru's race, I shall know when the time cometh.
Mbh.2.55.2275 No man should set himself to any task depending upon the counsels of another, for, O son of Kuru's race, the minds of two persons seldom agree in any particular act.
Mbh.3.114.5893 And then, O Kuru's son, as soon as that goddess Earth was giving away, she became sad at heart, and wrathfully spake the following words to that great lord, the ruler of the worlds, O mighty god, it is unworthy of thee to give me away to an ordinary mortal.
Mbh.3.120.6131 And with the keen edge of my sword, I shall forcibly sever his head from the trunk, in the field of battle; then I shall kill his followers, and Duryodhana, and all of Kuru's race.
Mbh.3.120.6147 Then let Abhimanyu rule the world so long as this most excellent of virtuous men, the magnanimous Yudhishthira, may be engaged in fulfilling his vow, the vow that was accepted and declared by him, the most righteous of Kuru's race, on the occasion of the famous play at dice.
Mbh.3.182.9124 O ornament of Kuru's race, may no doubts cross thy mind on account of these thy sufferings, for this affliction is for thy good
Mbh.3.217.11073 SECTION CCXVII Markandeya continued, O ornament of Kuru's race, he Angiras who was the third son of Brahma had a wife of the name of Subha.
Mbh.3.222.11241 SECTION CCXXII Markandeya continued, O sinless scion of Kuru's race, I have described to thee the various branches of the race of Agni.
Mbh.3.224.11334 And, O chief of Kuru's race, the lady Swaha on the first lunar day threw six times into that lake the semen of Agni.
Mbh.3.230.11703 Markandeya continued, O valiant scion of Kuru's race, I shall now with due devotion pray to that unrivalled, mighty, six-faced, and valiant Guha who is worshipped by gods and Rishis, enumerating his other titles of distinction: do thou listen to them: Thou art devoted to Brahma, begotten of Brahma, and versed in the mysteries of Brahma.
Mbh.3.251.12419 Karna said, O Kuru's son, Duryodhana, do thou lay to heart tie words that I say.
Mbh.3.275.13347 And, O scion of Kuru's race, king Dasaratha was greatly pleased to behold his son, that enhancer of Kausalya's delight, possessed of eyes that were red, and arms that were sinewy.
Mbh.4.6.256 And through my grace neither the Kuru's spies, nor those that dwell in the country of the Matsyas, will succeed in recognising you all as long as ye reside in Virata's city'
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.5.9.370 And there took place a terrible combat, O best of Kuru's race.
Mbh.5.18.795 O king of kings, O descendant of Bharata, O delighter of Kuru's race, thou wilt get back thy kingdom in the same way as Indra got his, after having killed Vritra.
Mbh.5.20.860 Those virtuous princes had also to endure unspeakable woes in the city of Virata, such as are endured only by vicious men when their souls transmigrate into the forms of inferior beings, Ye best of Kuru's race, overlooking all these injuries of yore they desire nothing but a peaceful settlement with the Kurus!
Mbh.5.21.876 How fortunate that those scions of Kuru's race desire peace with their cousins!
Mbh.5.25.1049 They are the true sons and friends and relatives of Kuru's race who would lay down life, life which is liable to be abused by misdeeds, in order to ensure the welfare of the Kurus.
Mbh.5.39.2101 Thou art an aged scion of Kuru's race.
Mbh.5.79.3856 The sinful Duryodhana of Kuru's race will not, O Bharata, accomplish the objects spoken of by Yudhishthira.
Mbh.5.85.4056 SECTION LXXXV Vaisampayana said, Meanwhile, understanding from his spies that the slayer of Madhu had set out, Dhritarashtra, with his hair standing erect, respectfully addressing the mighty-armed Bhishma and Dorna and Sanjaya and the illustrious Vidura, said these words unto Duryodhana and his counsellors, O scion of Kuru's race, strange and wonderful is the news that we hear.
Mbh.5.95.4449 Know, O thou of Kuru's race, that those wicked sons of thine, headed by Duryodhana, abandoning both virtue and profit, disregarding morality, and deprived of their senses by avarice, are now acting most unrighteously towards, O bull of men, their foremost of kinsmen.
Mbh.5.95.4454 Set right thy sons, O thou of Kuru's race, and I will set the Pandavas right.
Mbh.5.95.4483 O son of Kuru's race, if thou regainest thy natural disposition, the earth may continue to be peopled as now.
Mbh.5.96.4601 O thou, that are foremost of Kuru's line, the race to which thou belongest is highly regarded on earth.
Mbh.5.97.4618 O son of Kuru's race, physical strength is scarcely regarded as strength by those that are really strong.
Mbh.5.106.4902 SECTION CVI Janamejaya said, Interminably wedded to evil, blinded by avarice, addicted to wicked courses, resolved upon bringing destruction on his head, inspiring grief in the hearts of kinsmen, enhancing the woes of friends, afflicting all his well-wishers, augmenting the joys of foes, and treading the wrong path, why did not his friends seek to restrain him, and why also did not that great friend of Kuru's race, the holy One; with tranquil soul, or the Grandsire tell him anything from affection'
Mbh.5.106.4909 O son of Kuru's race, I think, the word of friends ought to be listened to.
Mbh.5.137.6166 O Kesava, recall to their remembrance all those cruel and harsh words that Dussasana said unto Bhima in the very presence of all the warriors of Kuru's race.
Mbh.5.144.6478 And the lady of Vrishni's race, that wife of Kuru's house, afflicted by the heat of the sun began to look like a faded garland of lotuses.
Mbh.5.147.6581 In her, O king, was born my younger brother, that mighty-armed and handsome supporter of Kuru's race, viz, Vichitravirya of virtuous soul.
Mbh.5.147.6608 I again joined my hands and conciliated my mother, saying, O mother, begot by Santanu and being a member of Kuru's race, I cannot falsify my promise'
Mbh.5.148.6629 Though king by right that perpetuator of Kuru's race yet made over the sovereignty to his elder brother, Dhritarashtra, endued with great wisdom, and to his younger brother Kshattri Vidura.
Mbh.5.148.6630 And placing this Dhritarashtra of unfading glory on the throne, that royal son of Kuru's race went to the woods with his two wives.
Mbh.5.150.6742 For the unity of Kuru's race and in view of the special requirements of the business at hand, I spoke also of gift.
Mbh.5.151.6767 Tell us now, O Sahadeva, O son of Kuru's race, who that warrior, is conversant with all kinds of battle-array, that may become the leader of these seven and may also withstand in battle Bhishma who is like unto a fire having arrows for its flames.
Mbh.5.164.7455 Nakula, then, O king, said these words, O Uluka, say unto Dhritarashtra's son, Suyodhana, of Kuru's race that all the words uttered by him have now been heard and their sense understood.
Mbh.5.167.7544 O king, he will continually fight for thee, O thou of Kuru's race.
Mbh.5.171.7736 According as the cause is, all strong-armed men become, O bull of Kuru's race, heroes or cowards.
Mbh.5.175.7829 How wouldst thou, O Bhishma, born especially as thou art in Kuru's race, transgress the laws of morality and cause one that longeth for another to live in thy abode?
Mbh.5.176.7862 It thus, O thou of Kuru's race, that the lord of the Salwas rejected that maiden who addressed him in language such as this and who was sobbing in grief so tenderly.
Mbh.5.179.8033 And Jamadagni's son, hearing these words of the princess, and having first settled what he should do, addressed that damsel of the fairest complexion, saying, O beautiful lady, I will send word unto Bhishma, that foremost one of Kuru's race.
Mbh.5.180.8065 O Ram, even Bhishma, that perpetuator of Kuru's race, hath achieved such success over all the Kshatriyas!
Mbh.5.181.8143 O thou of Kuru's race, even now I go with thee to Kurukshetra!
Mbh.5.181.8149 O thou of Kuru's race, take with thee, O bull of Bharatas' line, thy cars and all other equipments of battle'
Mbh.5.181.8171 Repairing to Jamadagni's son, O son of Kuru's race, I will repeatedly solicit him saying, Do not fight Bhishma who is thy disciple,
Mbh.5.182.8192 Well-covered by these in battle, O son of Kuru's race, I will fight'
Mbh.5.182.8209 Rama, thus addressed, said, O foremost one of Kuru's race, he that desires prosperity should act even thus!
Mbh.5.182.8212 Go, fight carefully and summoning all thy patience, O thou of Kuru's race!
Mbh.5.183.8265 And approaching Rama then, O thou of Kuru's race, and filled with wrath, from desire of vanquishing his angry self, I overwhelmed him with an arrowy shower!
Mbh.5.183.8271 Then all those ascetics together with the princess of Kasi, quietly proceeded, O son of Kuru's race, with great anxiety towards Rama.
Mbh.5.186.8361 Listen to them as I repeat them to thee, O perpetuator of Kuru's race!
Mbh.5.187.8383 Then, O tiger among the Kurus, it fell, O perpetuator of Kuru's line, upon my shoulder, like the lightning's flame that ranges the sky.
Mbh.5.188.8408 And it said, O son of Kuru's race, do not let off the Praswapa weapon,
Mbh.5.188.8432 It is not proper for thee, O perpetuator of Kuru's race, to vanquish Rama in battle!
Mbh.5.191.8562 And, O son of Kuru's race, the mighty-armed king Drupada, from paternal affection, attended to every comfort of that dear wife of his.
Mbh.5.195.8738 Then, O thou of Kuru's race, the giver of wealth cursed him in anger, saying, Ye Guhyakas, let the femininity of the wretch remain as it is'
Mbh.5.195.8756 And the king then, O bull of Kuru's race, gave his son, Sikhandin, who had been a woman, as a pupil, O monarch, to Drona.
Mbh.5.195.8764 Even, this is my vow, known over all the world, viz, that I will not, O son of Kuru's race, shoot weapons upon a woman, or one that was a woman before or one bearing a feminine name, or one whose form resembleth a woman's.
Mbh.5.195.8770 Sanjaya continued, Hearing these words of Bhishma, king Duryodhana of Kuru's race, reflecting for a moment, thought even that behaviour was proper for Bhishma
Mbh.6.1.16 And that descendant of Kuru's race also settled names and badges for all of them for recognition during time of battle.
Mbh.6.5.301 O son of Kuru's race, I will, however, describe to thee the island called Sudarsana.
Mbh.6.11.548 Listen to me, O son of Kuru's race, as I describe it to thee duly.
Mbh.6.11.566 The next, O thou of Kuru's race, is the large mountain called Jaladhara
Mbh.6.11.576 Sanjaya said, O great king, in all islands, O son of Kuru's race, men may be found that are fair, and those that are dark, and those also that are produced by a union of the fair and the dark races.
Mbh.6.11.582 O thou of Kuru's race, it hath been said by the wise that there are seven Varshas in that island.
Mbh.6.11.593 The rivers there are full of sacred water, and Ganga herself, distributed as she hath been into various currents, is there, Sukumari, and Kumari, and Seta, and Keveraka, and Mahanadi, O Kauravya, and the river Manijala, and Chakshus, and the river Vardhanika, O thou best of the Bharatas, these and many other rivers by thousands and hundreds, all full of sacred water, are there, O perpetuator of Kuru's race, from which Vasava draweth water for showering it as rain.
Mbh.6.12.641 The region next to Manonuga, O perpetuator of Kuru's race, is called Ushna.
Mbh.6.12.679 It hath been heard that the diameter of the beneficent, fast going and light-giving Sun, O thou of Kuru's race, is ten thousand Yojanas, and his circumference, O king, is thirty-five thousand eight hundred miles, in consequence of his largeness, O sinless one.
Mbh.6.22.1011 Unto that invincible prince Gudakesa staying in the midst of his troops, Janardana, O chief of Bharata's race, said, He, who scorching us with his wrath, stayeth in the midst of his forces, he, who will attack our troops like a lion, he, who performed three hundred horse-sacrifices, that banner of Kuru's race, that Bhishma, stayeth yonder!
Mbh.6.28.1345 Whence then the other, O best of Kuru's race?
Mbh.6.35.1711 Except by thee alone, hero of Kuru's race, I cannot be seen in this form in the world of men by any one else, aided even by the study of the Vedas and of sacrifices, by gifts, by actions, or by the severest austerities
Mbh.6.38.1786 Gloom, inactivity, error, and delusion also, these, O son of Kuru's race, are born when darkness is developed.
Mbh.6.43.2007 Sanjaya continued, Though thus addressed by his brothers, O son of Kuru's race, Yudhishthira of restrained speech said nothing but continued to proceed.
Mbh.6.43.2040 It is for this, O son of Kuru's race, that like a eunuch I am uttering these words, viz, Bound I am by the Kauravas with wealth.
Mbh.6.43.2045 Bhishma said, O king, O son of Kuru's race, what aid can I render thee in this?
Mbh.6.43.2056 Sanjaya continued, Then, O son of Kuru's race, Yudhishthira, once more saluting him, accepted Bhishma's words with a bend of his head.
Mbh.6.48.2452 And all the Kurus, O son of Kuru's race, beyond the range of arrows, and abandoning Bhishma the son of Santanu, in that battle, stood as spectators though armed for the combat.
Mbh.6.49.2542 The old chief of Kuru's race is ever cheerful and devoted to us.
Mbh.6.58.3059 And Sini's grandson and that bull of Kuru's race looked resplendent like the sun and the moon when together in the firmament after the last lunation of the dark fortnight has passed away.
Mbh.6.65.3563 Bhishma said, Listen, O king, to the words that I will speak unto thee, O thou of Kuru's race.
Mbh.6.79.4138 Then thus stationed on the same car, viz, those two brothers of Kuru's race, the son of Arjuna covered, O Bharata, with showers of arrows.
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.6.87.4557 The lord Yudhishthira, however, of Kuru's race, accompanied by the twins, proceeded towards that mighty bowman, that tiger among men viz, Bhishma.
Mbh.6.87.4564 Having cut off that long arrow resembling Death himself, Bhishma then slew in that battle the steeds, decked with gold, of that prince of Kuru's line.
Mbh.6.87.4571 Him of Kuru's race, thus careering over the field of battle, the Pandavas beheld resembling a young lion in the forest amid a herd of deer.
Mbh.6.87.4601 And the lord Yudhishthira also of Kuru's race, accompanied by his brothers, and followed by his troops, proceeded, O king, when night set in, towards his tent.
Mbh.6.96.5044 Hearing these words of the king, that foremost one among the Bharatas, viz, Bhishma, the son of Santanu, said these words unto Duryodhana, Listen, O king, to these words of mine that I say unto thee, O thou of Kuru's race, about the way in which thou, O chastiser of foes, shouldst always behave.
Mbh.6.101.5368 O son of Kuru's race, thy warriors, in that battle, were unable to resist that slayer of foes, viz, Subhadra's son, who, excited with wrath and possessed of wealth of arms, was then immersed in that inexhaustible ocean of Kaurava forces.
Mbh.6.102.5443 O son of Kuru's race, the blazing solar weapon.
Mbh.6.108.5815 All of us then, O best of persons, together going to Bhishma without delay, will speedily ask him of Kuru's race his advice.
Mbh.6.110.5988 Agreeably to his vow, O thou of Kuru's race, the ever-victorious Bhishma was incessantly engaged in slaughtering the troops of the Parthas.
Mbh.6.110.6009 Indeed, O king, on that tenth day of the battle, Bhishma, displaying his might, slew, O son of Kuru's race, hundreds of thousands.
Mbh.6.111.6037 Dhrishtadyumna, that mighty car-warrior, excited with rage, rushed against Bhishma alone and addressing the troops, repeatedly said in a loud voice, There, Arjuna, that delighter of Kuru's race, is proceeding against Bhishma in battle.
Mbh.6.117.6346 And the battle, O Bharata, that took place between those two heroes, viz, Subhadra's son, and that bull of Kuru's race, the former fighting for compassing Bhishma's death and the latter for Arjuna's defeat, was fierce and interesting to behold, and gratifying to the senses, and was applauded by all the kings.
Mbh.6.120.6663 Then those Rishis in swanlike forms, coming to Bhishma, beheld that perpetuator of Kuru's race lying on his bed of arrows.
Mbh.6.121.6730 Then Dussasana of Kuru's race informed Drona of Bhishma's slaughter.
Mbh.6.122.6750 O foremost one among the Kuru's O Phalguni, get me a pillow!
Mbh.6.122.6777 Then at the proper time, the mighty Madhava, approaching the Pandavas, those mighty car-warriors cheerfully seated together and filled with joy at the fall of Bhishma, said unto Dharma's son Yudhishthira these words, By good luck victory hath been thine, O thou of Kuru's rare!
Mbh.6.123.6819 And Santanu's son, his thirst quenched, then addressed Jishnu, O monarch, and said, applauding him highly in the presence of all those kings, these words, viz, O thou of mighty arms, this is not wonderful in thee, O son of Kuru's race!
Mbh.6.124.6905 Death from disease, O thou of Kuru's race, doth not become a Kshatriya!
Mbh.7.1.39 Through anger caused by this, O king, he had said unto Ganga's son these words: As long as thou livest, O thou of Kuru's race, I will never fight!
Mbh.7.2.72 Coursing, therefore, on the field I shall despatch those bulls of Kuru's race viz, the Pandavas to Yama's abode by means of my straight shafts.
Mbh.7.20.911 As long as I am alive, O thou of Kuru's race, it behoveth thee not to feel any anxiety.
Mbh.7.20.919 And while the prince of the Panchalas and that foremost one of Kuru's race were thus engaged in battle, Drona consumed many sections of Yudhishthira's host.
Mbh.7.25.1331 Reflecting with the aid of his understanding, O perpetuator of Kuru's race, Arjuna's heart, at last, was firmly fixed on the slaughter of the Samsaptakas.
Mbh.7.70.3040 Arjuna, afflicted with great grief, asked Yudhishthira, saying, O, thou of Kuru's race, hath he ascended to heaven, having caused a great slaughter among the enemy and contended with the foremost warriors in the face of battle?
Mbh.7.80.3567 And singers began to sing unto that delighter of Kuru's race, and in a moment the voices of the panegyrists swelled into a loud noise.
Mbh.7.81.3577 Commanded by the king, the man introduced that concourse of heroes, consisting of Virata and Bhimasena and Dhrishtadyumna and Satyaki, and Dhrishtaketu, the ruler of the Chedis, and the mighty car-warriors, Drupada, and Sikhandin, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and Chekitana, and the ruler of the Kalikayas, and Yuyutsu, of Kuru's race, and Uttamaujas of the Panchalas, and Yudhamanyu, and Suvahu, and the five sons of Draupadi.
Mbh.7.91.4155 Drona said, Thou sayest truly, O thou of Kuru's race, that Dhananjaya is irresistible.
Mbh.7.102.4765 Beholding Arjuna, that bull of Kuru's race covered by those lions among men with their shafts, loud was the uproar made by thy troops'
Mbh.7.108.5142 I tell thee truly, O great king, that without making thee over to somebody in this great battle, I will not surely go towards Arjuna, O thou of Kuru's race!
Mbh.7.121.5967 Then king Yudhishthira, with a couple of broad-headed shafts, cut off the bow of thy son, O thou of Kuru's race, as the latter struggled in fight.
Mbh.7.123.6105 Tell me what your commands are, O foremost one of Kuru's race!
Mbh.7.125.6242 That feat, O thou of Kuru's race, achieved by Bhimasena, seemed exceedingly wonderful.
Mbh.7.125.6251 Those terrible shouts of the roaring Bhimasena were, O thou of Kuru's race, heard by both Arjuna and Vasudeva in the midst of the battle.
Mbh.7.134.6697 Then, again, O thou of Kuru's race, diverse harsh speeches, such as sesamum seeds without kernel, etc,
Mbh.7.139.6948 He of Kuru's race, then, O king, addressing that bull of Sini's race, said, By luck it, is thou that hast today come within the range of my vision.
Mbh.7.139.6962 Hearing these words of his, Yuyudhana, O king, answered him with a laugh, saying, O thou of Kuru's race, I am never inspired with fear in battle.
Mbh.7.139.6970 Let that encounter, O thou of Kuru's race, which has been desired by thee so long, take place today.
Mbh.7.139.7015 And like a lion dragging an elephant, that foremost one of Kuru's race, viz, Bhurisravas, that giver of profuse presents at sacrifices, dragging that foremost one amongst the Satwatas, looked resplendent in that battle.
Mbh.7.140.7042 Being of royal lineage and born, especially, in Kuru's race, how hast thou fallen off from the duties of a Kshatriya, although thou wert of good behaviour and observant of excellent vows.
Mbh.7.140.7094 The warriors did not applaud Satyaki for that act of his in slaying that perpetuator of Kuru's race who had before been almost slain by Partha.
Mbh.7.142.7202 All that a person, bearing love and affection to thee and always solicitous of thy good, may do, shall be done by me, O thou of Kuru's race!
Mbh.7.144.7454 Owing to him, a great calamity will overtake the foremost ones of Kuru's race
Mbh.7.144.7472 While studying the science of arms at his feet, Kripa told me in those days, Do not, O thou of Kuru's race, ever strike thy preceptor.
Mbh.7.148.7748 By that feat, O thou of Kuru's race, the prowess of Arjuna in battle hath been well-tested.
Mbh.7.149.7837 Nor, O hero, do we see, O perpetuator of Kuru's race, that thou hast done anything unwise from want of intelligence!
Mbh.7.153.8005 Then Satyaki, of eyes like lotus-petals and teeth like those of a lion, possessed of great strength, and filled with rage, said these words unto Somadatta, O thou of Kuru's race, whether battling with thee or with others, I do not in my heart ever experience the slightest fear.
Mbh.7.153.8006 If, protected by all the troops, thou fightest with me, I would not, even then experience on thy account, any pain, O thou of Kuru's race!
Mbh.7.154.8260 Then that foremost one of Kuru's race, Yudhishthira, of the gait of the elephant or the lion, of broad chest and large and red eyes, and endued with energy scarcely inferior to that of Drona invoked into existence the Mahendra weapon.
Mbh.7.159.8649 That bull of Kuru's race, Yudhishthira, cut off that bow also, with many keen shafts.
Mbh.7.170.9202 Thither where blazing lamps were seen, O bull of Kuru's race, thither rushed those heroes like insects towards a blazing fire.
Mbh.7.180.9797 We would certainly have achieved success, O perpetuator of Kuru's race, if Krishna had not thus rescued the mighty car-warrior Partha from Karna's hands.
Mbh.7.181.9845 Sanjaya said, Returning from battle every day, O monarch, all of us, O foremost one of Kuru's race, used to debate in the night and say unto Karna.
Mbh.7.187.10296 Then commenced a terrible battle between those lions of Kuru's and Madhu's races, resembling an encounter between an elephant and a lion.
Mbh.8.1.6 Those lords of Earth, however, O thou of Kuru's race, could feel no happiness in their abodes.
Mbh.8.7.210 That mighty car-warrior, the son of the ruler of the Kaikeyas, riding on a goodly car equipped with standard and goodly steeds, stayeth on the field, O chief of Kuru's race, for battling for thy sake.
Mbh.8.7.211 Thy son also, that foremost of heroes in Kuru's race, Purumitra, O king, riding on his car possessed of the effulgence of fire or the Sun, stayeth on the field, like the Sun himself shining brilliantly in the cloudless firmament.
Mbh.8.32.1495 Brooding upon an insult, O thou of Kuru's race, a person like ourselves never engageth in my task.
Mbh.8.32.1537 Shalya said, Since, O son of Gandhari, thou describest me, O thou of Kuru's race, in the midst of all these troops, to be superior to Devaki's son, I am gratified with thee.
Mbh.8.49.2778 Meanwhile Yudhishthira, O thou of Kuru's race, quickly riding on the car of Srutakirti, began to behold the prowess of Karna.
Mbh.8.50.2863 Struck by Bhimasena, O perpetuator of Kuru's race, the Suta's son, that commander of thy forces, sat down senseless on the terrace of his car.
Mbh.8.58.3368 Resembling the Destroyer himself in impetuosity and Indra himself in prowess, yonder proceedeth Drona's son, O thou of Kuru's race, that hero who is the foremost of all wielders of weapons.
Mbh.8.69.4089 Adopt this censurable behaviour, O perpetuator of Kuru's race!
Mbh.8.71.4229 Gratify now this king of virtuous behaviour, this foremost of all practisers of virtue, this chief of Kuru's race.
Mbh.8.79.4839 This prince of Kuru's line, this foremost of car-warriors, careers in battle, borne by his steeds white in hue.
Mbh.8.81.4942 After this, many Kauravas, with cars and elephants and steeds, fearlessly advanced against that foremost one of Kuru's race, that chief of the Bharatas, Phalguna.
Mbh.8.81.4944 The mighty Kaurava bowmen shrouded that descendant of Kuru's race with darts and swords and lances and spears and maces and scimitars and arrows.
Mbh.8.89.5596 Then that slayer of foes, that bull of Kuru's race, that foremost of heroes, viz, Savyasaci, O king, soon slew in that battle foremost of Kuru warriors, with their cars and steeds and drivers, forming the protectors of Karna's car-wheels and wings and his van-guard and rear-guard and who constituted the very pick of Duryodhana's car-force, and who, urged by Duryodhana, had been fighting with great energy.
Mbh.8.90.5720 and worshipping Janardana, Arjuna, that foremost of all persons in Kuru's race once more quickly pierced Karna with many excellent arrows like the ruler of heaven, piercing the Asura, Samvara.
Mbh.8.91.5843 Beholding that standard cut off and thrown down by that hero of Kuru's race possessed of great lightness of hand, thy troops, O Bharata, were no longer hopeful of Karna's victory.
Mbh.8.95.6087 The mighty car-warriors of thy army fled away in fear, O chief of Kuru's race, some applauding Arjuna, some applauding Karna.
Mbh.8.96.6110 That descendant of Kuru's race then asked Vasudeva the particulars of Karna's death.
Mbh.8.96.6118 That foe of thine, O bull of Kuru's race, lieth today on the bare ground, pierced all over with arrows.
Mbh.8.96.6125 Then that chief of Kuru's race, that righteous son of Pritha, taking hold of Keshava's right arm adorned with Angadas, and addressing both Keshava and Arjuna, said, Narada told me that ye two are the gods Nara and Narayana, those ancient and best of Rishis, that are ever employed in the preservation of righteousness.
Mbh.8.96.6143 Sanjaya continued, Beholding Karna with his son slain with Partha's shafts, that perpetuator of Kuru's race, Yudhishthira, regarded himself as reborn.
Mbh.9.2.84 Who will now, after I will have waked from sleep at the proper hour, repeatedly address me in such endearing and respectful words as, O father, O father O great king O Lord of the world and affectionately clasping my neck with moistened eyes, will seek my orders, saying, Command me, O thou of Kuru's race
Mbh.9.4.280 Krishna will not, I think, be able to transgress the words of Dhritarashtra of Kuru's race, nor will the son of Pandu be able to transgress those of Krishna.
Mbh.9.7.442 Save thee there is no other person in either heaven or the whole of this world, who, O son of Kuru's race, would be able to slay the ruler of the Madras while excited with wrath in battle.
Mbh.9.15.887 He next pierced two angry sons of Madri, and Bhimasena the son of Pandu, and Yudhishthira, O thou of Kuru's race, with ten arrows each.
Mbh.9.17.1014 Deeply pierced, O king, that bull of Kuru's race, the illustrious Yudhishthira, then struck the ruler of the Madras with a well-shot shaft and became filled with joy.
Mbh.9.17.1017 Filled with joy, the ruler of the Madras then, drawing his bow and having shot many arrows, at last cut off, with a pair of razor-faced shafts, the bow of his royal foe, that bull of Kuru's race.
Mbh.9.17.1064 His armour having been cut off by that descendant of Kuru's race, the illustrious Shalya, strong as Indra's elephant, stretching his arms, fell down on the Earth, like a mountain summit riven by thunder.
Mbh.9.17.1110 After the slaughter of that foremost of bowmen on the field of battle by that bull of Kuru's race, the Parthas, beholding Shalya slain, united together, and filled with great joy, blew their conchs.
Mbh.9.24.1631 SECTION Sanjaya said, After that elephant-division had been destroyed, O Bharata, by the son of Pandu, and while thy army was being thus slaughtered by Bhimasena in battle, beholding the latter, that chastiser of foes, careering like the all-killing Destroyer himself in rage armed with his club, the remnant of thy unslaughtered sons, those uterine brothers, O king, united together at that time when he of Kuru's race, thy son Duryodhana, could not be seen, and rushed against Bhimasena.
Mbh.9.24.1639 Then with the greatest ease, piercing Jayatsena with a cloth-yard shaft, that chastiser of foes, the son of Pandu, felled that scion of Kuru's race from his car.
Mbh.9.29.2034 Having reached the banks of the Dvaipayana lake, O chief of Kuru's race, they beheld that receptacle of waters enchanted by thy son.
Mbh.9.29.2067 How canst thou boast of thy birth in Kuru's race when thou concealest thyself within the depths of this lake, having fled away from battle in fear?
Mbh.9.29.2132 O son of Kuru's race, today thou art not competent to give away the earth!
Mbh.9.30.2178 By good luck, thou art a hero, O thou of Kuru's race, and, by good luck, thou art conversant with battle, since, single-handed, thou wishest to meet all of us in battle!
Mbh.9.32.2345 Rama then casting his eyes on Krishna and the Pandavas, and looking at Duryodhana also of Kuru's race who was standing there armed with mace, said, Two and forty days have passed since I left home.
Mbh.9.35.2612 There is no fear of snakes in that place, O thou of Kuru's race!
Mbh.9.35.2638 There, at Kurukshetra, O foremost of Kuru's care, do thou perform grand sacrifices and rites!
Mbh.9.37.2786 Possessed of great might and great prowess Baladeva then proceeded to that tirtha where the adorable Grandsire had created the mountains called Lokaloka, where that foremost of Rishis, Arshtishena of rigid vows, O thou of Kuru's race, had by austere penances acquired the status of Brahmanhood, where the royal sage Sindhudwipa, and the great ascetic Devapi, and the adorable and illustrious Muni Vishvamitra of austere penances and fierce energy, had all acquired a similar status
Mbh.9.42.3026 Vaishampayana said, This curiosity that thou feelest is worthy of thy birth in Kuru's race.
Mbh.9.46.3399 Many years passed away, O perpetuator of Kuru's race, during which that damsel continually observed those diverse vows exceedingly difficult of being practised by women.
Mbh.9.49.3640 Besought by them for his bones, that foremost of rishis, O chief of Kuru's race, unhesitatingly gave up his life.
Mbh.9.51.3731 Taking Kuru's leave, the slayer of Vala, Shakra, then, with a joyful heart, quickly went back to heaven.
Mbh.9.53.3854 Having addressed each other in disagreeable and bitter words, those two foremost of heroes of Kuru's race stood, casting angry glances upon each other, like Shakra and Vritra in fight
Mbh.9.54.3884 Slaying with my mace this sinful wretch of Kuru's race, I shall today place around thy neck the garland of Fame!
Mbh.9.55.3956 Those two foremost ones of Kuru's race careered thus, each avoiding the other's blows.
Mbh.9.55.3998 When that foremost one of Kuru's race fell upon his knees, a loud cry arose from among the Srinjayas, O ruler of the world!
Mbh.9.56.4017 SECTION Sanjaya said, Beholding that fight thus raging between those two foremost heroes of Kuru's race, Arjuna said unto Vasudeva, Between these two, who, in thy opinion, is superior?
Mbh.9.56.4070 Having warded off that blow, thy son, that foremost one of Kuru's race, quickly struck Bhimasena with his weapon.
Mbh.9.57.4119 Many of the foremost warriors among the Somakas, who were all of righteous souls, beholding the foot of the rejoicing Bhimasena of narrow heart placed upon the head of that foremost one of Kuru's race, did not at all approve of it.
Mbh.9.57.4148 Without doubt this sad and woeful result had been ordained by the Creator himself, that we should injure thee and thou shouldst injure us, O foremost one of Kuru's race!
Mbh.9.61.4467 Rising up in haste after worshipping the feet of Vyasa bending his head, Keshava, O monarch, addressed Dhritarashtra, saying, I take my leave, O foremost one of Kuru's race!
Mbh.10.8.651 Sanjaya said, Through fear of the Parthas, O son of Kuru's race, Ashvatthama could not achieve such a feat then.
Mbh.10.9.685 Sanjaya continued, Beholding that chief of Kuru's race lying on the ground, Ashvatthama, O best of the Bharatas, uttered these piteous lamentations: O tiger among kings, all people indicated thee as the foremost of all bowmen!
Mbh.10.9.716 Without doubt, O chief of Kuru's race, we shall have to wander in grief on the earth.
Mbh.10.10.792 Having in deep affliction indulged in these lamentations, that king of Kuru's race then addressed Nakula, saying, Go and bring the unfortunate princess Draupadi here along with all her maternal relations'
Mbh.10.12.834 SECTION Vaishampayana said, After the irresistible Bhimasena had set out, that bull of Yadu's race, possessed of eyes like lotus-petals, addressed Kuru's son Yudhishthira, saying, O son of Pandu, this brother of thine, overwhelmed with grief at the slaughter of his sons, proceedeth alone to battle, from desire of slaying the son of Drona.
Mbh.12.4.166 Duryodhana, however, of Kuru's race, could not tolerate that rejection of himself.
Mbh.12.7.269 O best of Kuru's race, I have no need for kingdom or for pleasure'
Mbh.12.10.402 Or, it is like that of a person who having slain all his foes, O thou of Kuru's race, at last Falls by his own hand.
Mbh.12.24.1038 Do thou, O son of Kuru's race, perform the sacrifices of Sarvamedha and Aswamedha.
Mbh.12.27.1210 That scion of Kuru's race who with bow and shaft in hand had contended in fierce battle for many days with Rama himself of Bhrigu's line on the field sanctified by Kuru, that son of Ganga, that hero, who, at Baranasi, for the sake of brides, had, on a single car, challenged to battle the assembled Kshatriyas of the world, he who had burnt by the energy of his weapons that irresistible and foremost of kings, viz, Ugrayudha, alas, that hero has been caused by me to be slain in battle.
Mbh.12.31.1632 After this, Parvata having called king Srinjaya, that foremost of victorious persons, said unto him these words O bull of Kuru's race, We have been exceedingly gratified, O king, with thy hospitable attentions given to us with every sincerity.
Mbh.12.46.2273 When Bhishma, that foremost one of Kuru's race, will disappear from the world, every kind of knowledge will disappear with him.
Mbh.12.46.2282 That descendant of Kuru's race, therefore, O mighty-armed one, deserves to have a sight of thee.
Mbh.12.50.2744 Six and fifty days, O foremost one of Kuru's race, still remain for thee to live!
Mbh.12.51.2774 Vasudeva said, The words spoken by thee are worthy of thee that art the foremost one of Kuru's race, thee that art endued with great energy, thee that art of great soul, and thee that art possessed of great patience and conversant with every subject.
Mbh.12.53.2866 Vasudeva said, Know, O thou of Kuru's race, that I am the root of fame and of everything that leads to good.
Mbh.12.55.2923 O thou of Kuru's race, Morality, Profit, and Pleasure are dependent on kingly duties.
Mbh.12.55.2933 In the first place, O foremost one of Kuru's race, the king should, from desire of pleasing his subjects, wait with humility upon the gods and the Brahmanas, always bearing himself agreeably to the ordinance.
