MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.158.8274 And in the course of their wanderings they saw the countries of the Matsyas, the Trigartas, the Panchalas and then of the Kichakas, and also many beautiful woods and lakes therein.
Mbh.2.14.599 So also the Matsyas and the Sannyastapadas, overcome with fear, leaving their dominions in the north, have fled into the southern country.
Mbh.2.30.1249 The prince then brought under his sway Sukumara and then king Sumitra, and he next vanquished the other Matsyas and then the Patacharas.
Mbh.4.1.20 The aged Virata, king of the Matsyas, is virtuous and powerful and charitable, and is liked by all.
Mbh.4.1.23 Tell me, ye sons of the Kuru race, in what capacities ye will severally present yourselves before the king of the Matsyas
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.4.7.275 Do thou rule the Matsyas,
Mbh.4.8.294 And attired in black and possessed of the strength of the king of mountains, he approached the king of the Matsyas and stood before him.
Mbh.4.11.416 Be thou like my son, or rule thou like myself all the Matsyas.
Mbh.4.11.429 Vaisampayana continued, The king of the Matsyas then tested Vrihannala in dancing, music, and other fine arts, and consulting with his various ministers forthwith caused him to be examined by women.
Mbh.4.12.436 And seeing this, the king of the Matsyas said to his followers, I wonder whence this man, possessed of the effulgence of a celestial, cometh.
Mbh.4.12.465 And it was in this manner then the sons of Pandu, the very sight of whom had never been fruitless, continued to live in the country of the Matsyas.
Mbh.4.13.467 SECTION XIII Samayapalana Parva Janamejaya said, While living thus disguised in the city of the Matsyas, what did those descendants of the Kuru race endued with great prowess, do, O regenerate one'
Mbh.4.13.468 Vaisampayana said, Hear, O king, what those descendants of Kuru did while they dwelt thus in disguise in the city of the Matsyas, worshipping the king thereof.
Mbh.4.13.470 O lord of men, Yudhishthira, as courtier made himself agreeable to Virata and his sons as also to all the Matsyas.
Mbh.4.13.480 And after three months had passed away, in the fourth, the grand festival in honour of the divine Brahma which was celebrated with pomp in the country of the Matsyas, came off.
Mbh.4.13.488 And when all the athletes stood sad and dispirited, the king of the Matsyas made him fight with his cook.
Mbh.4.16.657 And the weeping Draupadi of fair hips, approaching the entrance of the court, and seeing her melancholy lords, desirous yet of keeping up the disguise duty-bound by their pledge, with eyes burning in fire, spoke these words unto the king of the Matsyas, Alas, the son of a Suta hath kicked today the proud and beloved wife of those whose foe can never sleep in peace even if four kingdoms intervene between him and them.
Mbh.4.16.673 Vaisampayana continued, With these and other words of the same kind the beautiful Krishna with tearful eyes rebuked the king of the Matsyas.
Mbh.4.18.732 Who else of my position, save myself, could live, having been kicked by Kichaka in the very sight of the wicked king of the Matsyas?
Mbh.4.19.785 When I behold, the godlike Partha in the music-hall like an elephant with rent temples surrounded by she-elephants in the midst of females, waiting before Virata the king of the Matsyas, then I lose all sense of directions.
Mbh.4.19.804 Alas, I now see that handsome youth wait upon the gorgeously decked and excellent Virata, the king of the Matsyas, and display horses before him.
Mbh.4.21.857 When, O Krishna, I beheld thee kicked by Kichaka, I conceived at that instant a wholesale slaughter of the Matsyas.
Mbh.4.22.931 This Virata is in name only the king of the Matsyas.
Mbh.4.22.932 Commanding the forces of this realm it is I, who am the real lord of the Matsyas.
Mbh.4.22.943 Draupadi said, Do thou, when it is dark, go to the dancing-hall erected by the king of the Matsyas where the girls dance during the day, repairing to their respective homes at night.
Mbh.4.22.963 Whether secretly or openly, I will crush Kichaka, and if the Matsyas fight for him, then I will slay them too.
Mbh.4.30.1224 SECTION XXX Vaisampayana said, Discomfited before, O monarch, many a time and oft by Matsya's Suta Kichaka aided by the Matsyas and the Salyas, the mighty king of the Trigartas, Susarman, who owned innumerable cars, regarding the opportunity to be a favourable one, then spoke the following words without losing a moment.
Mbh.4.30.1225 And, O monarch, forcibly vanquished along with his relatives by the mighty Kichaka, king Susarman, eyeing Karna in askance, spoke these words unto Duryodhana, My kingdom hath many a time been forcibly invaded by the king of the Matsyas.
Mbh.4.30.1245 Let also the mighty warrior, king Susarman, accompanied by a sufficient force with vehicles and animals, set out with the Trigartas for the dominions of Matsyas.
Mbh.4.31.1256 And when the cattle had been seized, the herdsman of Virata came with great speed to the city, and saw his sovereign, the king of Matsyas, seated on the throne in the midst of wise councillors, and those bulls among men, the sons of Pandu, and surrounded by brave warriors decked with ear-rings and bracelets.
Mbh.4.31.1264 And the coat of mail that the king himself of the Matsyas put on was invulnerable and decked with a hundred suns, a hundred circles, a hundred spots, and a hundred eyes.
Mbh.4.32.1283 SECTION XXXII Vaisampayana said, Marching out of the city, those heroic smiters the Matsyas, arrayed in order of battle, overtook the Trigartas when the sun had passed the meridian.
Mbh.4.32.1284 And both excited to fury and both desirous of having the king, the mighty Trigartas and the Matsyas, irrepressible in battle, sent up loud roars.
Mbh.4.33.1320 And king Susarman, the lord of the Trigartas having by his energy oppressed and defeated the whole army of the Matsyas, impetuously rushed towards Virata himself endued with great energy.
Mbh.4.33.1323 And when the powerful Virata, deprived of his car, was taken captive, the Matsyas, harrassed solely by the Trigartas, began to flee in fear in all directions.
Mbh.4.33.1324 And beholding them panic-stricken, Kunti's son, Yudhishthira, addressed that subduer of foes, the mighty-armed Bhima, saying, The king of the Matsyas hath been taken by the Trigartas.
Mbh.4.33.1337 Fighting together, O child, liberate the king of the Matsyas'
Mbh.4.34.1400 Do ye all become the lords of the Matsyas'
Mbh.4.34.1401 Vaisampayana continued, And when the king of the Matsyas had addressed them thus, those descendants of the Kurus with Yudhishthira at their head, joining their hands, severally replied unto him saying, We are well-pleased with all that thou sayest, O monarch.
Mbh.4.34.1403 Thus answered, that foremost of kings, Virata the lord of the Matsyas, again addressed Yudhishthira, saying, Come, we will install thee in sovereignty of the Matsyas.
Mbh.4.34.1409 Then Yudhishthira again addressed the Matsyas, saying, Well-pleased are we with the delightful words that thou hast spoken.
Mbh.4.34.1414 Hearing this command uttered by the king of the Matsyas, the men, laying the mandate on their head, all departed with cheerful hearts.
Mbh.4.35.1416 SECTION XXXV Vaisampayana said, When the king of the Matsyas, anxious of recovering the kine, had set out in pursuit of the Trigartas, Duryodhana with his counsellors invaded the dominions of Virata.
Mbh.4.35.1426 Indeed, the king of the Matsyas left thee in the empty city.
Mbh.4.38.1536 Uttara said, Let the Kurus rob the Matsyas off all their wealth.
Mbh.4.41.1611 Heir to the king of the Matsyas, and born in a noble family, why should I, O prince, make thee do such a reproachable deed'
Mbh.4.47.1818 As regards ourselves, we have come hither to fight with the Matsyas and to seize their kine stationed towards the north.
Mbh.4.47.1820 We have come hither to fight against the Matsyas on behalf of the Trigartas; and as numerous were the acts represented unto us of the oppressions committed by the Matsyas.
Mbh.4.47.1822 And it was agreed between us that they should first seize, on the afternoon of the seventh lunar day, the enormous wealth of kine that the Matsyas have, and that we should, at sunrise of the eighteen day of the moon, seize these kine when the king of the Matsyas would be pursuing those first seized.
Mbh.4.47.1823 It may be that the Trigartas are now bringing a way the kine, or being defeated, are coming towards us for negotiating with the king of the Matsyas.
Mbh.4.47.1824 Or, it may be, that having driven the Trigartas off, the king of the Matsyas, at the head of this people and his whole army of fierce warriors, appeareth on the scene and advanceth to make night-attacks upon us.
Mbh.4.47.1825 It may be that some one leader among them, endued with mighty energy, is advancing for vanquishing us, or, it may be that the king himself of the Matsyas is come.
Mbh.4.47.1826 But be it the king of the Matsyas or Vibhatsu, we must all fight him.
Mbh.4.48.1857 If he that is come is the king of the Matsyas or Vibhatsu, even I will resist him as the banks resist the swelling sea.
Mbh.4.50.1951 We are to fight with the king of the Matsyas, if indeed, he cometh in the track of the kine
Mbh.4.52.2015 Myself and Drona, and Karna and Aswatthaman and Kripa will resolutely withstand Vibhatsu, or the king of the Matsyas, or Indra himself, if he approaches.
Mbh.4.54.2053 And beholding the kine running wild towards the city of the Matsyas, the foremost warriors of the Kurus regarded Kiritin to have already achieved success.
Mbh.4.54.2055 And beholding their countless divisions firmly arrayed in order of battle with countless banners waving over them, that slayer of foes, addressing the son of the king of the Matsyas, said, Urge on, to the best of their speed by this road, these white steeds decked with golden bridles.
Mbh.4.61.2378 Blessed be thou, thou art a prince and born in the illustrious line of Matsyas.
Mbh.4.66.2581 Do not eulogise them upon entering the city, for then the king of the Matsyas may hide himself in fear.
Mbh.4.67.2602 And worshipped by them, the king of the Matsyas, at the head of his army, saluted the Brahmanas and his subjects in return and dismissed them cheerfully.
Mbh.4.67.2603 And Virata, the king of the Matsyas owning a large army, enquired after Uttara, saying, Where hath Uttara gone'
Mbh.4.67.2608 And it was thus that Virata, the king of the Matsyas, owning a large army, quickly ordered out a large division consisting of four kinds of troops.
Mbh.4.67.2624 And having despatched troops and maidens and courtezens decked in ornaments, the wise king of the Matsyas cheerfully said these words, O Sairindhri, fetch the dice.
Mbh.4.71.2773 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words of his, the mighty king of the Matsyas, considering himself guilty of having offended Yudhishthira, said unto Uttara in reply, I think the time hath come for me to propitiate the sons of Pandu.
Mbh.4.71.2784 And addressing all the Pandavas, and especially Dhananjaya, the mighty king of the Matsyas repeatedly said, By good luck it is that I see you'
Mbh.4.72.2816 And beholding them arrived, that foremost of virtuous men, the king of the Matsyas, adored them duly, and entertained their troops and servants and carriers of burdens.
Mbh.4.72.2828 And the matrons of the Matsyas of symmetrical bodies and limbs, and wearing ear-rings of pearls and gems, headed by Sudeshna, came to the place where the marriage knot was to be tied.
Mbh.5.5.125 And at the request of those lions of the Kuru race, as also of the two kings of the Matsyas and the Panchalas, many lords of the earth possessed of great strength, came to the place with cheerful hearts.
Mbh.5.19.825 And similarly, Virata, the king of the Matsyas, a leader of troops, accompanied by the king of the hilly regions, came to Pandu's sons.
Mbh.5.21.889 He is now paying no regard to that stipulation, but confident of aid from the Matsyas and Panchalas, he wisheth to get back his ancestral throne.
Mbh.5.22.937 I have heard that Virata, the chief of the Matsyas, with whom the Pandavas had lived for some time and whose wishes were fulfilled by them, old in years, is devoted, along with his sons to the Pandava cause, and hath become an adherent of Yudhishthira.
Mbh.5.50.2850 The Panchalas, the Kekayas, and the Matsyas, along with the very herdsmen that attend on their kine and sheep, are rejoicing and gladdening Yudhishthira, the son of Pandu.
Mbh.5.50.2856 Vaisampayana continued, Having recovered consciousness, and being comforted, Sanjaya addressed king Dhritarashtra in the midst of that concourse of Kurus in that hall, saying, Indeed, O king of kings, I saw those great warriors, the sons of Kunti, thinned in body, in consequence of the restraint in which they had lived in the place of the king of the Matsyas.
Mbh.5.53.2976 Even thou, O son, hast told me of my mighty enemies, viz, the kings of the Panchalas, the Kekayas, the Matsyas, and the Magadhas.
Mbh.5.54.3015 The Matsyas, the Panchalas, the Salways and the Surasenas, all decline to pay thee homage now and all disregard thee.
Mbh.5.57.3175 Those that have Yudhishthira for their leader, the slayer of Madhu for their protector, the heroic Savyasachin and Vrikodara for their warriors, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata, and Satyaki, and Drupada, and Dhrishtaketu with his son, and Uttamaujas, and the unconquerable Yudhamanyu of the Panchalas, and Sikhandin, and Kshatradeva, and Uttara, the son of Virata, and Kasayas, the Chedis, the Matsyas, the Srinjayas, Vabhru the son of Virata, the Panchalas, and the Prabhadrakas, for fighting for them, those, indeed, from whom Indra himself cannot, if they are unwilling, snatch this earth, those heroes, cool and steady, in fight, who can split the very mountains, alas, it is with them that are endued with every virtue and possessed of superhuman prowess that this wicked son of mine, O Sanjaya, desireth to fight, disregarding me even though I am crying myself hoarse'
Mbh.5.61.3313 Thou wilt hear of defeat of the Pandavas and the Matsyas, the Panchalas and the Kekayas, of Satyaki and Vasudeva, at my hands.
Mbh.5.62.3324 Having obtained the favour of that Rishi, I will slay within the twinkling of an eye the Panchalas, the Karushas, the Matsyas, and the sons of Pritha with their sons and grandsons, and bestow on thee numerous regions won by my weapons.
Mbh.5.64.3408 Drupada, and the king of Matsyas, and Dhananjaya, when angry, will, like flames of fire urged by the wind, leave no remnant of thy army.
Mbh.5.72.3551 Having the Kasis, the Panchalas, the Chedis, and the Matsyas, for my allies and with thee, O slayer of Madhu, for my protector, I prayed for only five villages, etc,
Mbh.5.74.3730 Janamejaya among the Nepas, Vahula among the Talajanghas, proud Vasu among the Krimis, Ajavindu among the Suviras, Rushardhik among the Surashtras, Arkaja among the Valihas, Dhautamulaka among the Chinas, Hayagriva among the Videhas, Varayu among the Mahaujasas, Vahu among the Sundaras, Pururavas among the Diptakshas, Sahaja among the Chedis and Matsyas, Vrishaddhaja among the Praviras, Dharana among the Chandra-batsyas, Bigahana among the Mukutas and Sama among the Nandivegas.
Mbh.5.151.6769 Sahadeva said, Closely related to us, sympathising with us in our distress, endued with great might, conversant with every virtue, skilled in weapons, and irresistible in battle, the mighty king of the Matsyas, Virata, relying upon whom we hope to recover our share of the kingdom, will be able to bear in battle both Bhishma and all those mighty car-warriors'
Mbh.5.161.7227 Like a frog having its abode in a well, why art thou not able to realise the might of this vast army of the assembled monarchs, invincible, looking like the very celestial host, and protected by these lords of men, as the heavenly host by the gods themselves, protected that is, by the kings of the East, the West, the South and the North, by the Kamvojas, the Sakas, the Khasas, the Salwas, the Matsyas, the Kurus of the middle country, the Mlechchhas, the Pulindas, the Dravidas, the Andhras, and the Kanchis, this host of many nations, ready for battle, and resembling the uncrossable current of the Ganga.
Mbh.5.162.7293 Like a frog within a well, why dost thou not realise the strength of this assembled host of monarchs, which resembleth the very celestial host, and which is protected by these kings like the gods protecting theirs in heaven, and which, swarming with the kings of the East, West, South, and North, with Kamvojas, Sakas, Khasas, Salwas, Matsyas, Kurus of the middle country, Mlechchhas, Pulindas, Dravidas, Andhras, and Kanchis, indeed, with many nations, all addressed for battle, is uncrossable like the swollen tide of Ganga?

Mbh.6.18.892 The Abhishahas, the Surasenas, the Sivis, and the Vasatis, the Swalyas, the Matsyas, the Amvashtas, the Trigartas, and the Kekayas, the Sauviras, the Kitavas, and the dwellers of the Eastern, Western, and the Northern countries, these twelve brave races were resolved to fight reckless of the lives.
Mbh.6.54.2805 Then the Chedis, the Matsyas, and Karushas, with Bhimasena at their head, with many kings impetuously rushed against the Nishadas.
Mbh.6.54.2920 And worshipped by the Panchalas and the Matsyas, O bull of Bharata's race, he embraced Dhrishtadyumna and then approached Satyaki.
Mbh.6.56.2973 And those renowned warriors, Aswatthaman and Kripa, supported by the Trigartas, the Matsyas, the Kekayas, and the Vatadhanas, were in its head.
Mbh.6.59.3251 And beholding the foremost warriors of that army of the Kurus thus slain by Phalguni, the Chedis, the Panchalas, the Kurushas, the Matsyas, and all the combatants of the Pandava side, those foremost of men, elated with victory, together set up a loud shout for frightening the Kaurava warriors.
Mbh.6.71.3815 And the Matsyas, O king, engaged with Duryodhana, and Sakuni; and Drupada and Chekitana, and that mighty car-warrior Satyaki engaged in battle with the high-souled Drona aided by his son.
Mbh.6.72.3840 SECTION LXXII Sanjaya said, Sikhandin with Virata king of the Matsyas speedily approached Bhishma that invincible and mighty bowman.
Mbh.6.74.3954 Then the Matsyas and the Kekayas, all accomplished in the science of arms, surrounded that mighty car-warrior Partha as also his son for supporting them.
Mbh.6.82.4282 And Bharadwaja's son proceeded against the king of the Matsyas, and his son Aswatthaman against Sikhandin.
Mbh.6.83.4319 Meanwhile, Bharadwaja's son pierced with his winged arrows the king of the Matsyas in battle.
Mbh.6.117.6385 The ruler of the Matsyas and the ruler of the Sindhus, both armed with beautiful bows and beautiful scimitars, both decked with handsome coats of mail and weapons and standards, and both of beautiful forms looked resplendent in that battle.
Mbh.6.119.6520 And then he slew seven great car-warriors among the Matsyas and the Panchalas.
Mbh.6.119.6544 Then confused cries of woe soon arose amongst the Matsyas, the Panchalas, and the Chedis, who were together rushing at that single hero.
Mbh.7.8.264 And the Kekaya princes, and Bhimasena, and Subhadra's son and Ghatotkacha and Yudhishthira, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the ruler of the Matsyas, and the son of Drupada, and the five sons of Draupadi, all filled with joy, and Dhrishtaketu, and Satyaki, and the wrathful Chitrasena, and the mighty car-warrior, Yuyutsu, and many other kings, O monarch, who followed the sons of Pandu, all achieved diverse feats in keeping with their lineage and prowess.
Mbh.7.9.327 It seems that when those heroes, viz, the Kekayas, the Chedis, the Karushas, the Matsyas, and the other kings, surrounding the preceptor, pressed him exceedingly like ants pressing upon a snake, while he was engaged in some difficult feat, the wretched Dhrishtadyumna must have slain him then.
Mbh.7.10.392 Virata, the king of the Matsyas, while it reached Drona in battle?
Mbh.7.16.730 And piercing Sikhandin with twelve arrows, and Uttamaujas with twenty, and Nakula with five, and Sahadeva with seven, and Yudhishthira with twelve, and each of the five sons of Draupadi with three, and Satyaki with five, and the ruler of Matsyas with ten arrows, and agitating the entire host in that battle, he rushed against one after another of the foremost warriors of the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.21.982 Then the Panchalas, the Kekayas, the Matsyas, the Chedis, the Karushas and the Kosalas, seeing Drona, rushed at him, desirous of rescuing Yudhishthira.
Mbh.7.21.984 Then Satanika, the younger brother of the ruler of the Matsyas, rushed at Drona who was thus engaged in incessantly destroying those divisions of the Pandava host.
Mbh.7.21.989 Having vanquished the Matsyas, the son of Bharadwaja then defeated the Chedis, the Karushas, the Kaikeyas, the Panchalas, the Srinjayas.
Mbh.7.21.1042 The mighty Drona then began to crush and mangle the Panchalas, the Matsyas, the Kaikeyas, the Srinjayas, and the Pandavas, all excited with rage.
Mbh.7.21.1045 And the Panchalas, the Kaikeyas and the Matsyas, thus slaughtered on all sides like the Danavas by Indra, began to tremble with fear
Mbh.7.22.1049 Sanjaya said, Beholding the Panchalas, the Pandavas, the Matsyas, the Srinjayas, the Chedis, the Kalikeyas, thus routed after being broken in battle by Drona with his shafts, beholding them thus driven from the field by those showers of fleet arrows shot from Drona's, bow, like vessels sent adrift by the awful waves of the tempest-tossed ocean, the Kauravas with many leonine shouts and with the noise of diverse instruments, began to assail the cars and elephants and foot-soldiers of that hostile host from all sides.
Mbh.7.22.1069 Other car-warriors headed by Satyajit, together with the Panchalas, the Kekayas, the Matsyas, and especially the Pandavas, are following him.
Mbh.7.23.1095 The Kaikeyas and Sikhandin, and Dhrishtaketu, surrounded by their respective troops, followed the ruler of Matsyas.
Mbh.7.23.1097 Fleet steeds of yellow colour and decked in chains of gold, bore with great speed the son Uttara of that slayer of foes, viz, Virata, the royal chief of the Matsyas.
Mbh.7.23.1186 Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, with their troops encountered Virata, the ruler of Matsyas at the head of his forces, like Indra and Agni in days of old encountering the Asura Vali.
Mbh.7.23.1187 That awful encounter between the Matsyas and the Kekayas, in which steeds and car-warriors and elephants fought most fearlessly, resembled that between the gods and the Asuras in days of old.
Mbh.7.38.1932 Seeing that implacable and proud foe of theirs thus vanquished, those mighty car-warriors, viz, the five sons of Draupadi, who had on their banners the images of Yama and Maruta and Sakra and the twin Aswins, and Satyaki, and Chekitana, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Sikhandin, and the Kekayas, and Dhrishtaketu, and the Matsyas, Panchalas, and the Srinjayas, and the Pandavas headed by Yudhishthira, were filled with joy.
Mbh.7.41.2032 Indeed, those heroes, viz, the Matsyas, the Panchalas, the Kaikeyas, and the Pandavas, exerting themselves vigorously, succeeded in approaching the presence of Jayadratha, but none of them could bear him.
Mbh.7.76.3308 Fie on the Kaikeyas, the Chedis, the Matsyas, and the Srinjayas, they that could not protect thee, O hero, while engaged in battle!
Mbh.7.92.4258 Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, those two great bowmen, who had, for the sake of their friend Duryodhana, uplifted their weapons, disregarding their lives, encountered Virata, the king of the Matsyas.
Mbh.7.95.4394 Then king Yudhishthira and Bhimasena, the son of Pandu, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, desirous of protecting Satyaki, and the Matsyas, and the Salweya troops, speedily proceeded towards Drona.
Mbh.7.107.4996 The mighty-armed Drona vanquished the Panchalas, the Srinjayas, the Matsyas and the Kekayas, O monarch, by hundreds and thousands.
Mbh.7.119.5846 And Drona, O king, proclaiming his name in that battle, caused a great carnage among the Pandavas, the Panchalas, and the Matsyas.
Mbh.7.153.8051 Beholding the two brothers resolutely proceeding towards Drona's division, the mighty car-warriors among the Panchalas, the Srinjayas, the Matsyas, the Chedis, the Karushas, the Kosalas, and the Kaikeyas, O king, all followed them.
Mbh.7.154.8271 Then the Kaikeyas, the Srinjayas, and the Panchalas of great energy followed the two brothers, O king, accompanied by the Matsyas and the Satwatas.
Mbh.7.155.8278 Our combatants are now encompassed on all sides by the Panchalas, the Kaikeyas, the Matsyas, and the mighty car-warriors of the Pandavas, all filled, with rage and resembling hissing snakes.
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.7.158.8591 The mighty car-warriors among the Srinjayas and the Panchalas, with the Matsyas and the Somakas, O king, followed the two brothers thus engaged in that encounter with Drona.
Mbh.7.163.8869 And the Panchalas, the Srinjayas, the Matsyas, the Kaikeyas, and the Chedis, speedily advanced, with all their might against Drona from desire of slaying him.
Mbh.7.184.10109 That mighty car-warrior, viz, the son of Bharadwaja, then vanquished all Matsyas.
Mbh.7.184.10118 Upon the fall of Virata and Drupada, and the slaughter of the Kshatriyas, the Chedis, the Matsyas, and the Panchalas, and upon the fall of those three heroes, viz, the three grandsons of Drupada, the high-souled Dhrishtadyumna, beholding those feats of Drona, became filled with rage and grief, and swore in the midst of all the ear-warriors, saying, Let me lose merits of all my religious acts as also my Kshatriya and Brahma energy, if Drona escape me today with life, or if he succeed in vanquishing me
Mbh.7.187.10323 When the engagement became general ant confused, Yudhishthira the son of Dharma, addressing all the foremost of warriors among the Panchalas and the Matsyas, said, They that are our life, they that are our heads, they amongst us that are endued with great strength, those bulls among men are all engaged with the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.7.188.10372 Once more slaying five hundred Matsyas, and six thousand elephants, he slew ten thousand steeds.
Mbh.7.191.10624 Urged by fate, the Pandavas, the Kaikeyas, the Matsyas, and the Panchalas, O foremast of regenerate ones, approaching Drona's car, began to perish.
Mbh.7.193.10726 With that I will rout and slay the Pandavas, the Panchalas, the Matsyas, and the Kaikeyas, in battle, like Sachi's lord routing and slaying the Asuras.
Mbh.7.198.11207 Only Vibhatsu, supported by the Somakas and the Matsyas, shot his arrows at the Kauravas and checked their onset
Mbh.8.6.193 Similarly, Satyadhriti of the Matsyas, and Madiraswa of great energy, and Suryadatta possessed of great prowess, have all been slain by Drona with his shafts.
Mbh.8.8.244 He had subjugated many invincible and mighty foes, the Gandharas, the Madrakas, the Matsyas, the Trigartas, the Tanganas, the Khasas, the Pancalas, the Videhas, the Kulindas, the Kasi-kosalas, the Suhmas, the Angas, the Nishadhas, the Pundras, the Kichakas, the Vatsas, the Kalingas, the Taralas, the Asmakas, and the Rishikas.
Mbh.8.30.1312 Yudhamanyu and Shikhandi and the sons of Draupadi and the Prabhadrakas, and Uttamauja and Yuyutsu and the twins and Dhrishtadyumna, and the divisions of the Cedis and the Karushas and the Matsyas and Kaikeyas, and the mighty Chekitana, and king Yudhishthira of excellent vows, all these, accompanied by cars and steeds and elephants, and foot-soldiers of fierce prowess, encompassed Karna on all sides in that battle, and showered upon him diverse kinds of weapons, addressing him in harsh words and resolved to compass his destruction.
Mbh.8.45.2432 The Kauravas with the Pancalas, the Salwas, the Matsyas, the Naimishas, the Koshalas, the Kasapaundras, the Kalingas, the Magadhas, and the Cedis who are all highly blessed, know what the eternal religion is.
Mbh.8.45.2435 Beginning with the Matsyas, the residents of the Kuru and the Pancala countries, the Naimishas as well and the other respectable peoples, the pious among all races are conversant with the eternal truths of religion.
Mbh.8.45.2458 The Pancalas observe the duties enjoined in the Vedas; the Kauravas observe truth; the Matsyas and the Surasenas perform sacrifices, the Easterners follow the practices of the Shudras; the Southerners are fallen; the Vahikas are thieves; the Saurashtras are bastards.
Mbh.8.45.2461 Commencing with the Pancalas, the Kauravas, the Naimishas, the Matsyas, all these, know what religion is.
Mbh.8.47.2622 Kripa and Kritavarma, and Shakuni the son of Subala, those heroes difficult of defeat in battle, accompanied by troops that were all cheerful, themselves filled with rage, and capable of smiting down thick ranks of cars, fought with the Koshalas, the Kasis, the Matsyas, the Karusas, the Kaikayas, and the Surasenas, all of whom were possessed of great courage.
Mbh.8.48.2650 Then Dhrishtadyumna, Satyaki, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Vrikodara, Janamejaya, and Shikhandi, and many foremost warriors among the Prabhadrakas, and many amongst the Cedis, the Kaikayas, and the Pancalas, the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the Matsyas, all clad in mail, rushed fiercely upon Radha's son, skilled in smiting, from desire of slaying him.
Mbh.8.49.2739 Satyaki and Chekitana and Yuyutsu and Shikhandi and the sons of Draupadi and the Prabhadrakas, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva and Bhimasena and Shishupala and the Karushas, Matsyas, the Suras, the Kaikayas, the Kasis and the Kosalas, all these brave heroes, endued with great activity, assailed Vasusena.
Mbh.8.56.3209 That great bowman, fighting single-handed with the Bahlikas, and the Kaikayas, the Matsyas, the Vasatas, the Madras, and Saindhavas, looked exceedingly resplendent.
Mbh.8.73.4352 Protected by thee, O slayer of foes, the Pancalas, the Matsyas, the Karushas, and the Cedis, have caused a great destruction of thy foes.
Mbh.8.73.4373 Conversant with the highest weapons, he shrouded the Cedis, the Pancalas, the Karushas, the Matsyas, and the Kaikayas with the shafts, and deprived them of life!
Mbh.8.78.4747 O monarch, the Cedis and the Matsyas, rushing against Karna alone, poured upon him showers of shafts.
Mbh.9.16.939 Then the Pandava troops once more became filled with joy, especially the Pancalas, the Somakas and the Matsyas.
Mbh.9.20.1270 Beholding that feat of Salwa, the Pancalas, the Srinjayas, and the Matsyas, O king, uttered loud cries of Oh
Mbh.10.8.658 All the Somakas also, as well as all that remained of the Matsyas, have been slaughtered by me!
Mbh.10.9.726 All the Pancalas too have been slain, as also the remnant of the Matsyas, O Bharata!
Mbh.14.69.3077 Having sat up, the daughter of the king of the Matsyas, summoning her patience, joined her hands in reverence and touched the earth with her head for saluting Kesava of eyes like the petals of the lotus.
Mbh.15.36.1490 The Chedis and the Matsyas, who were our friends, no longer exist.
