Mbh.5.150.6731 King Duryodhana then repeatedly ordered those wicked-hearted rulers, saying, Today constellation Pushya is ascendant, march ye this very day to Kurukshetra.
Mbh.5.150.6752 Indeed, all those kings have already marched to, Kurukshetra.
Mbh.5.152.6818 And reaching the field of Kurukshetra with their forces in battle-array, those smiters, the sons of Pandu, looked like roaring bulls.
Mbh.5.153.6829 And arrived, O Bharata, at the holy Hiranwati which flows through Kurukshetra, which was filled with sacred water, and whose bed was divested of pointed pebbles and mire, and which was regarded as an excellent tirtha, Kesava caused a moat to be excavated there, and for its protection stationed a sufficient number of troops with proper instructions.

Mbh.5.154.6850 Let the kings my allies pitch their tents by hundreds and thousands on Kurukshetra, all of which must be spacious, incapable of being approached by enemies, near enough to places abounding with water and fuel, in such positions that the communications thereto for sending supplies may not be stopped at any time by the foe, full of weapons of diverse kinds, and decked with streamers and flags.
Mbh.5.157.6977 And after making Bhishma, that grinder of hostile hosts, his general, and having also caused by abundant gifts of kine and gold to the Brahmanas to pronounce benedictions on him, and glorified by those benedictions, and surrounded by his troops, and with Ganga's son in the van, and accompanied by his brothers, Duryodhana marched to Kurukshetra with his large host.
Mbh.5.160.7066 SECTION CLX Janamejaya said, After the soldiers had been arrayed thus in order of battle on the field of Kurukshetra, what, O bull among Brahmanas, did the Kauravas then do, urged as they were by destiny itself'

Mbh.5.162.7280 The field of Kurukshetra also is without mire.

Mbh.5.181.8128 Come and station thyself on the field of Kurukshetra where, afflicted with my shafts in great battle, and sanctified by my weapons, thou mayest obtain those regions that have been won by thee thought for thy austerities.
Mbh.5.181.8143 O thou of Kuru's race, even now I go with thee to Kurukshetra!
Mbh.5.181.8151 Having said all this, Rama then went to Kurukshetra from desire of combat, and I also, entering our city, represented everything unto Satyavati.
Mbh.5.181.8163 I issued out of the city named after the elephant, and proceeded to Kurukshetra, which, O bull of Bharata's race, was to be the field of battle!
Mbh.5.181.8165 And arrived in the field of Kurukshetra, both myself and Rama, eager for battle, became desirous of showing each other our prowess.
Mbh.5.198.8833 And all these Dhartarashtras endued with great might, uniting together in proper order, and all clad in mail, took up their position at the other end of Kurukshetra, and, O Bharata, Duryodhana caused his encampment to be so adorned as to make it look like a second Hastinapura.
Mbh.6.1.5 Vaisampayana said, Listen thou, O lord of the earth, how those heroes, the Kurus, the Pandavas, and the Somakas, fought on the sacred plain of the Kurukshetra
Mbh.6.1.6 Entering Kurukshetra, the Pandavas endued with great might, along with the Somakas, advanced, desirous of victory, against the Kauravas.

Mbh.6.25.1069 John Bruno Hare Dhritarashtra said, Assembled together on the sacred plain of Kurukshetra from desire of fighting what did my sons and the Pandavas do.
Mbh.8.44.2357 A foremost one among brahmanas, venerable in years while reciting old histories, said these words, blaming the Vahikas and Madrakas, One should always avoid the Vahikas, those impure people that are out of the pale of virtue, and that live away from the Himavat and the Ganga and Sarasvati and Yamuna and Kurukshetra and the Sindhu and its five tributary rivers.
Mbh.9.33.2405 In course of his wanderings, that hero of unrivalled power and magnanimous conduct at last came to Kurukshetra
Mbh.9.35.2638 There, at Kurukshetra, O foremost of Kuru's care, do thou perform grand sacrifices and rites!
Mbh.9.36.2690 While, again, the high-souled Kuru was engaged in a sacrifice at Kurukshetra, that foremost of rivers, the highly blessed Sarasvati, made her appearance there.
Mbh.9.36.2691 Summoned, O monarch, by the high-souled Vasishtha who assisted Kuru in his sacrifice, the Sarasvati, full of celestial water appeared at Kurukshetra under the name of Oghavati.
Mbh.9.50.3706 Then he of Madhu's race, having come out of the environs of Samantapanchaka, enquired of the rishis about the results of the battle at Kurukshetra.
Mbh.9.50.3707 Asked by that lion of Yadu's race about the results of the battle at Kurukshetra, those high-souled ones told him everything as it had happened
Mbh.9.51.3711 Hence it came to be Kurukshetra the field of Kuru'
Mbh.9.51.3740 The very dust of Kurukshetra, borne away by the wind, shall cleanse persons of wicked acts and bear them to heaven
Mbh.9.51.3742 The space between the Tarantuka and the Arantuka and the lakes of Rama and Shamachakra, is known as Kurukshetra.
Mbh.9.51.3746 Even this was said by Shakra himself about the high blessedness of Kurukshetra.
Mbh.9.52.3748 SECTION Vaishampayana said, Having visited Kurukshetra and given away wealth there, he of the Satwata race then proceeded, O Janamejaya, to a large and exceedingly beautiful hermitage.
Mbh.9.53.3809 Rama then answered Yudhishthira in these sweet and righteous words that were highly beneficial to heroes, I have heard it said by the Rishis, O best of kings, that Kurukshetra is a highly sacred and sin-cleansing spot, equal to heaven itself, adored by gods and Rishis and high-souled Brahmanas!
Mbh.11.16.673 Those ladies, bereaved of their lords, having reached Kurukshetra, beheld their slain brothers and sons and sires and husbands lying on the ground, and in course of being devoured by beasts of prey and wolves and ravens and crows and ghosts and pishacas and rakshasas and diverse other wanderers of the night.
Mbh.12.48.2542 SECTION XLIX Vaisampayana said, Then Hrishikesa and king Yudhishthira, and all those persons headed by Kripa, and the four Pandavas, riding on those cars looking like fortified cities and decked with standards and banners, speedily proceeded to Kurukshetra with the aid of their fleet steeds.
Mbh.12.343.22747 Nothing wonderful was accomplished by my ancestor Dhananjaya who was the victor in the great battle on Kurukshetra, for it should be remembered that he had Vasudeva for his ally.
Mbh.12.363.23893 On the occasion, again, of my dreadful encounter with Rama of Bhrigu's race on the field of Kurukshetra, the celestial Vasus, O king, recited this history to me

Mbh.13.119.10577 Those bulls among Kshatriyas, also, who have cast off their life-breaths on the field of Kurukshetra exerting their energy the while, have all attained to a meritorious end.
Mbh.13.125.10905 Sakra said, Thinking in one's mind of Kurukshetra and Gaya and Ganga and Prabhasa and the lakes of Pushkara, one should dip one's head in water.

Mbh.14.73.3240 Countless, O monarch, was the fete of Kshatriyas, of kings in myriads, who fought with Arjuna on that occasion, for having lost their kinsmen on the geld of Kurukshetra.
Mbh.14.73.3241 Innumerable Kiratas also, O king, and Yavanas, all excellent bowmen, and diverse tribes of Mlechechas too, who had been discomfited before by the Pandavas on the field of Kurukshetra, and many Aryan kings, possessed of soldiers and animals endued with great alacrity, and all irresistible in fight encountered the son of Pandu in battle.
Mbh.14.74.3253 At the time of his setting out, he had been earnestly ordered by king Yudhishthira the just, not to slay those Kshatriyas whose kinsmen had been slain before on the field of Kurukshetra.
Mbh.14.74.3282 They then addressed that tiger among men, that slayer of the Samsaptaka host on the field of Kurukshetra, saying, We are your slaves.
Mbh.14.77.3344 SECTION LXXVII Vaisampayana said, There occurred a great battle between the diadem-decked Arjuna and the hundreds of Saindhavas who still lived after the slaughter of their clan on the field of Kurukshetra.
Mbh.14.84.3748 Of immeasurable soul, he also caused that head-gear to be borne along a great distance like the head of Jayadratha after he had cut it off in the battle of Kurukshetra.
Mbh.14.90.4015 Repeatedly uttering such deep sounds and thereby frightening all animals and birds, that proud denizen of a hole, with large body, spoke in a human voice and said, Ye kings, this great sacrifice is not equal to a prastha of powdered barley given away by a liberal Brahmana of Kurukshetra who was observing the Unccha vow'

Mbh.14.90.4053 On that righteous spot of ground known by the name of Kurukshetra, which is the abode of many righteous persons, there lived a Brahmana in the observance of what is called the Unccha vow.
