Mbh.3.31.1492 Vyasa, and Vasistha and Maitreya, and Narada and Lomasa, and Suka, and other Rishis have all, by virtue alone, become of pure soul!
Mbh.3.47.2433 SECTION XLVII Vaisampayana said, One day, the great Rishi Lomasa in course of his wanderings, went to the abode of Indra, desirous of beholding the lord of the celestials.
Mbh.3.47.2440 And having known them, the lord of Sachi addressed Lomasa with a smile and said, Listen, O Brahmarshi, about what is now passing in thy mind.
Mbh.3.47.2472 After Mahendra had spoken thus unto Lomasa, Vibhatsu also reverently addressed that Rishi, saying, Protect thou ever the son of Pandu.
Mbh.3.47.2474 Vaisampayana continued, The mighty ascetic Lomasa, having answered both saying, So be it' set out for the earth, desirous of arriving at Kamvaka.

Mbh.3.92.4927 SECTION XCII Lomasa continued, Listen now, O Yudhishthira, to what Dhananjaya hath said: Cause my brother Yudhishthira to attend to the practice of virtue which leadeth to prosperity.
Mbh.3.92.4952 Vaisampayana continued, Lomasa then said unto Yudhishthira, who had made up his mind to start on the proposed journey, O mighty king, be thou light as regards thy retinue, for by this thou wilt be able to go more easily'
Mbh.3.92.4961 And the royal son of Kunti, with only a small number of Brahmanas, abode for three nights at Kamyaka, cheered by Lomasa
Mbh.3.93.4962 SECTION XCIII Vaisampayana said, Those Brahmanas then, that had been dwelling with him in the woods, beholding the son of Kunti about to set out on the pious pilgrimage, approached him, O king, and said, Thou art about to set out, O king, on thy journey to the sacred tirthas, along with thy brothers and accompanied by the illustrious Rishi Lomasa.
Mbh.3.93.4977 Protected by Lomasa and taking us with thee, go thou to all the tirthas spoken of by Dhaumya and the intelligent Narada, as also all those that have been spoken of by the celestial Rishi Lomasa, endued with great ascetic wealth, and be thou, by this, cleansed of all thy sins
Mbh.3.93.4979 With the permission then of Lomasa, as also of his priest Dhaumya, that foremost of Pandu's sons with soul under complete control, resolved, along with his brothers and Drupada's daughter of faultless features, to set out.
Mbh.3.93.4989 And those heroes, having worshipped the feet of Lomasa and Dwaipayana and Narada and the celestial Rishi Parvata, O king, and accompanied by Dhaumya as also the ascetics that had been residing with them in the woods, set out on the day following the full moon of Agrahayana in which the constellation Pushya was ascendant.
Mbh.3.94.4995 Yet why, O Lomasa, do they prosper in this world
Mbh.3.94.4996 Lomasa said, Grieve not ever, O king, O son of Pritha, that sinful men should often prosper in consequence of the sins they commit.
Mbh.3.96.5057 It was here that that foremost of speakers, king Yudhishthira asked Lomasa as to why Agastya had slain Vatapi there.
Mbh.3.96.5059 Thus questioned, Lomasa said, O son of Kuru race, there was in the city called Manimati, in days of yore, a Daitya named Ilwala, whose younger brother was Vatapi.
Mbh.3.97.5093 SECTION XCVII Lomasa continued, When Agastya thought that girl to be competent for the duties of domesticity, he approached that lord of earth-the ruler of Vidharbhas-and addressing him, said, I solicit thee, O king, to bestow thy daughter Lopamudra on me'
Mbh.3.98.5127 SECTION XCVIII Lomasa continued, Agastya then, O son of the Kuru race, went to king Srutarvan who was regarded as richer than other kings, to beg for wealth.
Mbh.3.98.5132 Lomasa continued, The king, then, representing unto the Rishi the equality of his expenditure and income, said, O learned one, take thou from my possessions the wealth thou pleasest'
Mbh.3.98.5140 Lomasa continued, That monarch then represented unto them the equality of his expenditure and income, and said, Knowing this, take ye what ye desire'
Mbh.3.98.5147 Lomasa continued, That monarch then, represented unto them the equality of his income with expenditure, and said, Knowing this, take ye what ye desire'
Mbh.3.98.5151 Lomasa continued, This suggestion, O king, of begging wealth of Ilwala appeared to them to be proper.
Mbh.3.99.5153 SECTION XCIX Lomasa said, When Ilwala learnt that those kings along with the great Rishi had arrived on the confines of his domain, he went out with his ministers and worshipped them duly.
Mbh.3.99.5184 Lomasa continued, Saying, So be it' that pious Muni thereupon knew his devout wife of equal behaviour.
Mbh.3.99.5201 Vaisampayana continued, At these words of Lomasa, Yudhishthira bathed there with his brothers and Krishna, and offered oblations of water, O Bharata, to the gods and the Pitris.
Mbh.3.99.5203 The son of Pandu then, O king, asked Lomasa, saying, O illustrious one, why had Rama's energy and might been taken away?
Mbh.3.99.5206 Lomasa said, Listen, O king, to the history of Rama the son of Dasaratha and Rama of Bhrigu's line gifted with intelligence.
Mbh.3.99.5222 Lomasa continued, Hearing this, Dasaratha's son blazed up in wrath and said, I have heard what thou hast said, and even pardoned thee.
Mbh.3.100.5245 Lomasa said, Listen now, O king, to the excellent and wonderful and extraordinary history of Agastya, as also, O monarch, about the prowess of that Rishi of immeasurable energy.
Mbh.3.101.5279 SECTION CI Lomasa said, Armed with the Vajra then, and supported by celestials endued with great might, Indra then approached Vritra, who was then occupying the entire earth and the heaven.
Mbh.3.102.5307 SECTION CII Lomasa said, The Kalakeyas then having recourse to that receptacle of waters, which is the abode of Varuna, began their operations for the destruction of the universe.
Mbh.3.104.5369 Lomasa said, The sun between his rising and setting used to revolve round that monarch of mountains, the great Meru of golden lustre.
Mbh.3.105.5401 SECTION CV Lomasa said, That blessed saint, the son of Varuna, having reached the sea spake unto the assembled gods, and the saints gathered together, saying I surely am going to drink up the ocean, that abode of the god of waters.
Mbh.3.106.5422 SECTION CVI Lomasa said, Then gathered together, Brahma, the grandfather of men thus addressed, Go ye, O gods!
Mbh.3.106.5433 Lomasa said, There was born in the family of the Ikshaku tribe, a ruler of the earth named Sagara, endued with beauty, and strength.
Mbh.3.107.5457 SECTION CVII Lomasa said, O most righteous of kings!
Mbh.3.107.5514 Lomasa said, A son was born to Sagara, known by the name of Asamanjas, he who was given birth to by the princess of Sivi.
Mbh.3.108.5564 SECTION CVIII Lomasa said, That same king, of a powerful bow, standing at the head of the surrounding, ie, the occupant of an imperial throne of a powerful car, ie, possessing every great fighting power became the delight of the eyes and the soul of all the world.
Mbh.3.108.5596 Lomasa said, Ganga, the goddess saluted by the world, having heard these words of the king, was well pleased, and spake to Bhagiratha the following words: O great king!
Mbh.3.109.5608 SECTION CIX Lomasa said, The blessed God having heard what Bhagiratha had said, and with a view to doing what was agreeable to the residents of heaven, replied to the king, saying, So let it be.
Mbh.3.110.5642 The son of Pandu, having observed very many strange circumstances of this character again addressed his questions to Lomasa with reference to these wonderful things.
Mbh.3.110.5643 Lomasa said, O slayer of foes!
Mbh.3.110.5675 Lomasa said, This is the pure divine river by name Kausiki.
Mbh.3.110.5690 Lomasa said, Hear how Rishyasringa, of dreaded name, was born as a son to Vibhandaka, who was a saint of the Brahmana caste, who had cultured his soul by means of religious austerities, whose seed never failed in causing generation, and who was learned and bright like the Lord of beings.
Mbh.3.111.5737 SECTION CXI Lomasa said, O descendant of Bharata!

Mbh.3.114.5884 Yudhishthira said, O Lomasa, how great must be the force of a pious deed!
Mbh.3.114.5888 Lomasa said, O Yudhishthira, the place whence this noise comes and reaches thy ears is at the distance of three hundred thousand yojanas, to be sure.
Mbh.3.115.5912 And Lomasa made him acquainted with the names of all of them, such as the Bhrigus, the Angiras, the Vasishthas, and the Kasyapas.
Mbh.3.118.6069 There he, possessed of a pair of large red eyes, washed himself with all his younger brothers, and offered libations to the forefathers and the celestial hosts; and so did Krishna and all those Brahmanas together with Lomasa.
Mbh.3.120.6171 Then having parted with Krishna, the virtuous king, accompanied by his brothers and servants, and also by Lomasa, went to the sacred river Payosini.
Mbh.3.121.6175 SECTION CXXI Lomasa said, O king!

Mbh.3.123.6260 SECTION CXXIII Lomasa said, Once on a time, O king, those celestials, namely the twin Aswins, happened to behold Sukanya, when she had just bathed, and when her person was bare.
Mbh.3.124.6297 SECTION CXXIV Lomasa said, Now the news came to Saryati that Chyavana had been turned into a youth.
Mbh.3.124.6318 Lomasa said, When these very identical words were spoken again and again by the lord of celestials, the son of Bhrigu, setting Indra at naught, took up the offering he had intended to make.
Mbh.3.125.6337 SECTION CXXV Lomasa said, When the god who had performed a hundred sacrifices Indra beheld the demon Mada of a frightful mien, coming towards him with open mouth, his intention being to devour him, and looking like the god of death himself, while his own arms remained paralysed, he through fear repeatedly licked the corners of his mouth.
Mbh.3.126.6397 Lomasa said, Hear with attention, O king!
Mbh.3.126.6475 Kunti's son, thus addressed by the mighty saint, Lomasa, immediately put fresh questions to him, with regard to Somaka
Mbh.3.127.6479 Lomasa said, O Yudhishthira!
Mbh.3.128.6524 Lomasa said, Then the priest officiated in the sacrifice in which Jantu was offered as the victim.
Mbh.3.128.6555 Lomasa said, The lotus-eyed king did all that exactly in the way prescribed to him.
Mbh.3.129.6565 SECTION CXXIX Lomasa said, Here, O king!
Mbh.3.129.6603 And he addressed the following words to Lomasa, O thou whose strength lieth in truthfulness!
Mbh.3.129.6606 Lomasa said, It is even so, O thou of powerful arms!
Mbh.3.130.6615 SECTION CXXX Lomasa said, O son of Bharata's race!
Mbh.3.131.6686 Lomasa said, Saying this, O mighty son of Kunti, the highly virtuous king cut off a portion of his own flesh, and placed it in a balance, against the pigeon.
Mbh.3.132.6697 SECTION CXXXII Lomasa said, See here, O lord of men, the sacred hermitage of Swetaketu, son of Uddalaka, whose fame as an expert in the sacred mantras is so widely spread on earth.
Mbh.3.132.6703 Yudhishthira said, Tell me, O Lomasa, all about the power of this man, who had in that way defeated Vandin.
Mbh.3.132.6705 Lomasa said, The sage Uddalaka had a disciple named Kahoda of subdued passions, and entirely devoted to the service of his preceptor and who had continued his studies long.
Mbh.3.134.6809 Lomasa said, Saying this, O Yudhishthira, wroth with Vandin, Ashtavakra thus thundered in the assembly, and addressed him in these words, Do thou answer my questions, and I shall answer thine'
Mbh.3.134.6824 Lomasa said, Having proceeded thus far, Vandin stopped.
Mbh.3.134.6856 Lomasa said, Then rose before Janaka all the Brahmanas, after having been duly worshipped by the magnanimous Varuna.
Mbh.3.134.6864 Lomasa said, When in enhanced splendour, the Brahmanas had risen up, Vandin, taking king Janaka's permission, entered into the waters of the sea.
Mbh.3.135.6875 SECTION CXXXV Lomasa said, Here, O king, is visible the river Samanga, whose former name was Madhuvila, and yonder is the spot named Kardamila, the bathing place of Bharata.
Mbh.3.135.6892 Lomasa said, Bharadwaja and Raivya were two friends.
Mbh.3.135.6912 Lomasa said, O son of Bharata, having said this, Sakra went away, and Yavakri of immeasurable energy, once more directed his attention to asceticism.
Mbh.3.135.6918 Lomasa said, Knowing the determination of that high-souled sage, the sagacious Indra reflected and hit upon some expedient to dissuade him.
Mbh.3.135.6932 Lomasa said Then Indra granted boons, as was prayed for by the mighty ascetic, Indra said, As thou desirest, the Vedas will be manifest unto thee, yea, even unto thy father.
Mbh.3.136.6970 SECTION CXXXVI Lomasa said, One day in the month of Chaitra, while fearlessly wandering at large, Yavakri approached the hermitage of Raivya.
Mbh.3.137.6995 SECTION CXXXVII Lomasa said, O son of Kunti, Bharadwaja returned to his hermitage after performing the ritual duties of the day, and having collected the sacrificial fuel.
Mbh.3.138.7024 SECTION CXXXVIII Lomasa said, At that very time, the mighty king, Vrihadyumna, of high fortune, who was the Yajamana of Raivya, commenced a sacrifice.
Mbh.3.138.7037 Lomasa said, Having observed the vow relative to the killing of a Brahmana, the sage Arvavasu came back to the sacrifice.
Mbh.3.138.7047 Lomasa said, The celestials, O king, were well pleased with Arvavasu for his acts.
Mbh.3.138.7059 Lomasa said, Having said this to Yavakri, and restored all those to life, the celestials with Indra at their head, ascended to heaven.
Mbh.3.139.7062 SECTION CXXXIX Lomasa said, O descendant of Bharata, O king, now hast thou left behind the mountains Usiravija, Mainaka and Sweta, as well as the Kala hills, O son of Kunti, O bull among the descendants of Bharata, here flow before thee the seven Gangas.
Mbh.3.139.7087 Having thus addressed the river, Lomasa bade Yudhishthira, saying, Be thou careful
Mbh.3.139.7088 Yudhishthira said, This confusion of Lomasa is unprecedented.
Mbh.3.139.7090 Lomasa knows this place to be certainly difficult of access.
Mbh.3.140.7099 O Kunti's son, thou hast heard what the sage Lomasa had said regarding mount Kailasa.
Mbh.3.140.7101 Or, O mighty Bhima of large eyes, do return from hence, taking with thee Sahadeva, and all our charioteers, cooks, servants, cars, horses, and Brahmanas worn out with travel, while I together with Nakula and the sage Lomasa of severe austerities proceed, subsisting on the lightest fare and observing vows.
Mbh.3.140.7123 Lomasa said, Access to the mountain, Gandhamadana, is only to be obtained by dint of asceticism.
Mbh.3.141.7169 SECTION CXLI Lomasa said, O sons of Pandu, ye have seen many a mountain, and river and town and forest and beautiful tirtha; and have touched with your hands the sacred waters.
Mbh.3.141.7180 Hearing the words of the high-souled Lomasa, the son of Pandu reverentially worshipped the river Ganga, flowing through the firmament.
Mbh.3.141.7183 And knowing that Pandu's sons were intent upon asking him, Lomasa versed in speech said, Hear, O sons of Pandu!
Mbh.3.141.7207 Lomasa said, O Yudhishthira, listen to all at length as I relate the story, which thou hast asked me to narrate.
Mbh.3.141.7222 Lomasa said, Having thus dismissed the Earth, who hath the mountains for her ear-rings, he suddenly became turned into a boar with one tusk, and of exceeding effulgence.
Mbh.3.141.7252 Lomasa said, Then the celestials, placing the grandsire at their head, came to that infinite Soul, and having listened to his praise, bade him adieu and went back to whence they had come
Mbh.3.141.7253 Vaisampayana said, O Janamejaya, having heard this story, all the Pandavas without delay and with alacrity, began to proceed by the way pointed out by Lomasa
Mbh.3.142.7268 And Nakula together with Lomasa and other Brahmanas of great asceticism stood in fright, each under a tree.
Mbh.3.144.7321 And by virtue of his native energy, Lomasa of incomparable effulgence moved along the path of the Siddhas, like unto a second sun.
Mbh.3.154.7804 O best of the Bharatas, saying, So be it' Hidimava's son and the other Rakshasas who knew the quarter where the lotus lake of Kuvera was situated, started cheerfully with Lomasa, bearing the Pandavas, and many of the Brahmanas.
Mbh.3.154.7813 And seeing Yudhishthira the just and the great sage Lomasa and Nakula and Sahadeva and also the other foremost of Brahmanas, they all bowed themselves down in humility.
Mbh.3.155.7824 In fact, O foremost of Brahmanas, we have one by one carefully seen all celebrated and sacred spots in company with the high-souled Lomasa.
Mbh.3.156.7843 And once on a day while that represser of foes, Bhimasena, was out a hunting, he the Rakshasa, seeing Ghatotkacha and his followers scatter in different directions and seeing those vow-observing great rishis, of ascetic wealth, viz; Lomasa and the rest, away for bathing and collecting flowers, assumed a different form, gigantic and monstrous and frightful; and having secured all the arms of the Pandavas as also Draupadi, that wicked one fled away taking the three Pandavas.
Mbh.3.157.7931 Then in obedience to these words of the ascetics, that represser of foes, Yudhishthira, set out with his brothers and those Brahmanas, followed by the Rakshasa and protected by Lomasa.
Mbh.3.157.7949 And Dhaumya and Krishna and the Parthas and the mighty sage Lomasa went on in a body and none grew tired.
Mbh.3.159.8049 Living thus, they passed the fifth year, hearing to various stories told by Lomasa.
Mbh.3.175.8755 And as they started, the great sage Lomasa, advising them even as a father doth his son, with a cheerful heart, went unto the sacred abode of the dwellers of heaven.
Mbh.3.298.14701 SECTION CCLXLVIII Janamejaya said, What, O Brahmana, was that great fear entertained by Yudhishthira in respect of Karna, for which Lomasa had conveyed to the son of Pandu a message of deep import from Indra in these words, That intense fear of thine which thou dost never express to any one, I will remove after Dhananjaya goeth from hence?
Mbh.11.26.1081 I met with the celestial rishi Lomasa and obtained from him the boon of spiritual vision.
Mbh.12.47.2294 Surrounded by Vyasa conversant with the Vedas by the celestial Rishi Narada, by Devasthana, by Asmaka Sumantu, by Jaimini, by the high-souled Paila, by Sandilya, by Devarata, by Maitreya of great intelligence, by Asita and Vasishtha and the high-souled Kausika, by Harita and Lomasa and Atri's son of great intelligence, by Vrihaspati and Sukra and the great sage Chyavana, by Sanatkumara and Kapila and Valmiki and Tumvuru and Kuru, by Maudgalya and Rama of Bhrigu's race, and the great sage Trinavindu, by Pippalada and Vayu and Samvarta and Pulaha and Katha, by Kasyapa and Pulastya and Kratu and Daksha and Parasara, by Marichi and Angiras and Kasmya and Gautama and the sage Galava, by Dhaumya and Vibhanda and Mandavya and Dhaumra and Krishnanubhautika, by Uluka, that foremost of Brahmanas and the great sage Markandeya, by Bhaskari and Purana and Krishna and Suta, that foremost of virtuous persons, surrounded by these and many other highly-blessed sages of great souls and possessed of faith and self-restraint and tranquillity of mind, the Kuru hero looked like the Moon in the midst of the planets and the stars.
Mbh.12.137.7652 On the branches of the tree there lived a cat, of the name of Lomasa, in great happiness, daily devouring a large number of birds.
Mbh.12.137.7731 Possessed of sharp foreteeth and having eyes that resembled the stones called lapis lazuli, the cat called Lomasa, gentle eyeing the mouse, answered as follows: I am delighted with thee, O amiable one!
Mbh.12.137.7752 Hearing these judicious words fraught with reason, Lomasa, filled with delight, cast his eyes upon Palita and applauded him with exclamations of welcome.
Mbh.12.137.7789 And when thou, O Lomasa, wilt fly away in fear, I shall enter my hole and thou wilt get upon the tree'
Mbh.12.137.7813 Be comforted, O Lomasa'
Mbh.12.137.7827 Lomasa meanwhile had climbed the high tree.
Mbh.12.137.7848 Addressed in such soothing words by the cat, the mouse, conversant with all that is productive of the highest good, replied in these sweet words that were beneficial to himself: I have heard, O Lomasa, all that thou hast said.
Mbh.12.137.7948 I shall not mingle with thee, cease in thy attempts, O Lomasa!
Mbh.12.137.7964 Lomasa said, Truly I swear by thee that to injure a friend is in my estimation very censurable.
Mbh.13.67.6377 Thou art not unacquainted with this saying of Lomasa, O thou of mighty arms!
Mbh.13.129.11094 SECTION CXXIX Lomasa said, The Pitris of those men who, without having wedded wives of their own, betake themselves to the wives of other people, become filled with disappointment when the time for the Sraddhas comes.
Mbh.13.165.13705 They are Atri, Vasishtha, Saktri, Parasara's son Vyasa of great energy; Viswamitra, Bharadwaja, Jamadagni, the son of Richika, Rama, Auddalaka, Swetaketu, Kohala, Vipula, Devala, Devasarman, Dhaumya, Hastikasyapa, Lomasa, Nachiketa, Lomaharsana, Ugrasravas, and Bhrigu's son Chyavana.
