MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.59 Let Ganesa be thought of, O Muni, for the purpose of writing the poem'
Mbh.1.1.70 From the mysteriousness of their meaning, O Muni, no one is able, to this day, to penetrate those closely knit difficult slokas.
Mbh.1.5.987 O great Muni, I shall first properly recount the story of this family, as told in the Puranas.
Mbh.1.38.2083 The gods said, O thou truth-knowing one, on whom will Jaratkaru, that foremost Muni, gifted with great energy and asceticism, beget that illustrious son'
Mbh.1.40.2120 But days went on, yet that wise Muni of rigid vows, deeply engaged in ascetic devotions, did not seek for a wife.
Mbh.1.40.2129 And fatigued and thirsty, he came across a Muni, in the forest, seated in a cow-pen and drinking to his fill the froth oozing out of the mouths of calves sucking the milk of their dams.
Mbh.1.40.2130 And approaching him hastily, the monarch, hungry and fatigued, and raising his bow, asked that Muni of rigid vows, saying, O Brahmana, I am king Parikshit, the son of Abhimanyu.
Mbh.1.40.2133 But that Muni observing then the vow of silence, spoke not unto him a word.
Mbh.1.40.2135 The Muni suffered him to do it without protest.
Mbh.1.40.2139 The forgiving Muni, knowing that the monarch who was a tiger amongst kings was true to the duties of his order, cursed him not, though insulted.
Mbh.1.45.2312 And the Muni had air alone for his food and was free from desire of worldly enjoyment.
Mbh.1.45.2336 And, O Muni, from loss of children, we have fallen down from a sacred region.
Mbh.1.46.2383 Sauti continued, The Muni, having said so unto the Pitris, wandered over the earth again.
Mbh.1.47.2417 And one day, after the menstrual period, the sister of Vasuki, having purified herself by a bath according to custom, approached her lord the great Muni; And thereupon she conceived.
Mbh.1.47.2459 Thus addressed, the Muni of great ascetic merit spake unto his wife Jaratkaru these words that were proper and suitable to the occasion.
Mbh.1.49.2537 Indeed, the king knew not that he was a Muni observing the vow of silence.
Mbh.1.49.2539 O excellent one of the Bharata race, the king, thy father taking up from the ground with the end of his bow a dead snake placed it on the shoulders of that Muni of pure soul.
Mbh.1.49.2540 But the Muni spake not a word good or bad and was without anger.
Mbh.1.50.2542 SECTION L Astika Parva continued Sauti continued, The ministers said, That king of kings then, spent with hunger and exertion, and having placed the snake upon the shoulders of that Muni, came back to his capital.
Mbh.1.50.2543 The Muni had a son, born of a cow, of the name of Sringin.
Mbh.1.65.3262 The daughters of Daksha are, O tiger among men and prince of the Bharata race, Aditi, Diti, Danu, Kala, Danayu, Sinhika, Krodha, Pradha, Viswa, Vinata, Kapila, Muni, and Kadru.
Mbh.1.65.3297 And Sesha or Ananta, Vasuki, Takshaka, Kumara, and Kulika are known to be the sons of Kadru; and Bhimasena, Ugrasena, Suparna, Varuna, Gopati, and Dhritarashtra, and Suryavarchas the seventh, Satyavachas, Arkaparna, Prayuta, Bhima, and Chitraratha known to fame, of great learning, and a controller of his passions, and then Kalisiras, and, O king, Parjanya, the fourteenth in the list, Kali, the fifteenth, and Narada, the sixteenth, these Devas and Gandharvas are known to be the sons of Muni Daksha's daughter as mentioned before.
Mbh.1.66.3322 And the Muni begat upon her fifty daughters; and all those daughters were of faultless features and limbs and of eyes like lotus-petals.
Mbh.1.66.3340 And the son of Aha were Jyotih, Sama, Santa, and also Muni.
Mbh.1.71.3747 Sakuntala then replied, Hear, O king, what I have learnt regarding all that befell me of old and how I became the daughter of the Muni.
Mbh.1.75.4118 Born of Prachetas the Muni Daksha, uniting himself with Virini, begat a thousand sons of rigid vows, all like himself.
Mbh.1.75.4154 Yati betaking himself to asceticism became a Muni like unto Brahman himself.
Mbh.1.75.4168 During the time of a great sacrifice I have been cursed by the Muni Usanas Sukra.
Mbh.1.91.5001 A Muni, without search for woods, depending on his own vigour, should abstain from all vicious acts, should give away something in charity, should never inflict pain on any creature.
Mbh.1.91.5007 Yayati answered, He is, indeed, a Muni who, though dwelling in the woods, hath an inhabited place near, or who, though dwelling in an inhabited place, hath the woods near'
Mbh.1.91.5008 Ashtaka enquired what is meant by Muni'
Mbh.1.91.5009 Yayati replied, A Muni withdrawing himself from all worldly objects liveth in the woods.
Mbh.1.91.5020 And when the Muni sits in yoga meditation, becoming indifferent to happiness and misery, honour and insult, he then leaveth the world and enjoyeth communion with Brahma.
Mbh.1.91.5021 When the Muni taketh food like wine and other animals, i.
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.1.99.5501 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed, the celestial daughter of Jahnu, Ganga, then replied unto the monarch, her husband, that bull amongst men, saying, O best of Bharata's race, he who was obtained as son by Varuna was called Vasishtha, the Muni who afterwards came to be known as Apava.
Mbh.1.104.5837 Ille tamen Muni qui in venture erat punctum temporis quo humor vitalis jam emissum iret providens, viam per quam semen intrare posset pedibus obstruxit.
Mbh.1.104.5850 And they said many other things regarding the Muni Dirghatamas.
Mbh.1.104.5870 tied the Muni to a raft and committing him to the mercy of the stream returned home without compunction.
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.1.107.6017 Upon this, their suspicion fell upon the Muni, and accordingly they seized him with the thieves and brought him before the king.
Mbh.1.108.6033 Thus addressed by the king, the Muni was pacified.
Mbh.1.108.6036 The Muni, with a portion of the stake within his body, walked about, and in that state practised the austerest of penances and conquered numberless regions unattainable by others.
Mbh.1.116.6285 While this process was going on, the beautiful and chaste Gandhari of rigid vows, realising the affection that one feeleth for a daughter, began to think within herself, There is no doubt that I shall have a hundred sons, the Muni having said so.
Mbh.1.118.6348 I am, O king, a Muni who liveth on fruits and roots, though disguised as a deer.
Mbh.1.118.6352 I am a Muni of the name of Kindama, possessed of ascetic merit.
Mbh.1.154.8101 Hearing these words of hers, Bhima replied, O Rakshasa woman, who can, like a Muni having all his passions under control, abandon his sleeping mother and elder and younger brothers?
Mbh.1.176.9011 And, O prince, the son of Gadhi, gratified with everything and applauding the cow named Nandini, addressed the Rishi, saying, O Brahmana, O great Muni, give me thy Naridini in exchange for ten thousand kine, or my kingdom.
Mbh.1.177.9060 The king ever victorious in battle saw that Muni bearing the name of Saktri, that illustrious propagator of Vasishtha's race, the eldest of the high-souled Vasishtha's hundred sons, coming along from opposite direction.
Mbh.1.177.9108 Then the great Muni under the influence of grief, beholding the sea, tied a stony weight to his neck and threw himself into its waters.
Mbh.1.178.9111 SECTION CLXXIX Chaitraratha Parva continued The Gandharva continued, Beholding his asylum bereft of his children, the Muni afflicted with great grief left it again.
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.1.178.9117 For his grief the Muni could not, from that time, stay in one place; he began to wander over mountains and along rivers and lakes.
Mbh.1.178.9129 The voice thou hearest is that of the Muni, who is reciting the Vedas'
Mbh.1.179.9173 The virtuous Parasara, from the day of his birth, knew Vasishtha for his father and behaved towards the Muni as such.
Mbh.1.180.9218 But the Muni Aurva of the Bhrigu race resolved upon overcoming the whole world.
Mbh.1.182.9271 And remembering the slaughter of his father Saktri, the great Muni began to consume the Rakshasas, young and old, in the sacrifice he performed.
Mbh.1.182.9273 And in that sacrifice the great Muni Parasara sat before three blazing fires, himself like unto a fourth fire.
Mbh.1.182.9275 Then Vasishtha and the other Rishis regarded that Muni blazing with his own energy as if he were the second Sun.
Mbh.1.182.9289 O Muni, no Rakshasa was capable of devouring Saktri; he himself provided for his own death.
Mbh.1.182.9297 The Gandharva continued, Thus addressed by Pulastya, as also by the intelligent Vasishtha, that mighty Muni, the son of Saktri then brought that sacrifice to an end.
Mbh.1.186.9376 And on their way those heroes beheld the illustrious Dwaipayana, that Muni of pure soul, and perfectly sinless.
Mbh.1.209.10312 On hearing this, Yudhishthira asked, O great Muni, whose sons were Asuras called Sunda and Upasunda?
Mbh.1.213.10466 After the virtuous Pandavas had established that rule amongst themselves, the great Muni Narada, gratified with them, went to the place he wished.
Mbh.1.234.11472 Arundhati insulted even the wise Muni amongst the celestial seven.
Mbh.2.4.118 Alamva and Parijataka; the exalted Parvata, and the great Muni Markandeya; Pavitrapani, Savarna, Bhaluki, and Galava.
Mbh.2.7.325 And Parasara and Parvata and Savarni and Galava; and Sankha, and the Muni, Gaursiras, and Durvasa, and Krodhana and Swena and the Muni Dhirghatamas; and Pavitrapani, Savarni, Yajnavalkya and Bhaluki; and Udyalaka, Swetaketu, and Tandya, and also Bhandayani; and Havishmat, and Garishta, and king Harischandra; and Hridya, Udarshandilya.
Mbh.2.7.328 And Sahadeva, and Sunitha, and Valmiki of great ascetic merit; and Samika of truthful speech, and Prachetas ever fulfilling their promises, and Medhatithi, and Vamadeva, and Pulastya, Pulaha and Kratu; and Maruta and Marichi, and Sthanu of great ascetic merit; and Kakshivat, and Gautama, and Tarkhya, and also the Muni Vaishwanara; and the Muni Kalakavrikhiya and Asravya, and also Hiranmaya, and Samvartta, and Dehavya, and Viswaksena of great energy; and Kanwa, and Katyayana, O king, and Gargya, and Kaushika, all are present there along with the celestial waters and plants; and faith, and intelligence, and the goddess of learning, and wealth, religion, and pleasure; and lightning.
Mbh.2.12.462 As regards the Sabha of Sakra, however, thou hast named, O Muni, all the gods, the Gandharvas, and various Rishis.
Mbh.2.12.463 But, O great Muni, thou hast mentioned one and only one king, viz, the royal Rishi Harishchandra as living in the Sabha of the illustrious chief of the gods.
Mbh.2.17.765 The king went unto that Muni accompanied by his two wives, and worshipping him with jewels and valuable presents gratified him highly.
Mbh.2.17.772 Krishna continued, Hearing these words of the king, the Muni controlling his outer senses entered into meditation, sitting in the shade of that very mango tree where he was.
Mbh.2.17.773 And there fell upon the lap of the seated Muni a mango that was juicy and untouched by the beak of a parrot or any other bird.
Mbh.2.17.775 And the great Muni, possessed also of extraordinary wisdom, addressing the monarch, said, Return, O king, thy wish is fulfilled.
Mbh.2.17.777 Hearing these words of the Muni and worshipping his feet, the monarch possessed of great wisdom, returned to his own abode.
Mbh.2.35.1471 Beholding that vast concourse all the Kshatriyas, the Muni Narada, O king of men, became thoughtful.
Mbh.3.9.432 SECTION IX Dhritarashtra said, O holy one, I did not like this business of gambling, but, O Muni, I think, I was made to consent to it drawn by fate!
Mbh.3.10.468 SECTION X Dhritarashtra said, O Muni of profound wisdom, it is even as thou sayest!
Mbh.3.10.470 Indeed, what thou considerest to be beneficial for the Kurus was pointed out to me, O Muni, by Vidura and Bhishma and Drona.
Mbh.3.10.506 When the Muni had spoken so, king Dhritarashtra began to pacify the sage, in order that what he had said might not happen.
Mbh.3.12.603 Arjuna said, In days of old, thou, O Krishna, hadst wandered on the Gandhamadana mountains for ten thousand years as a Muni having his home where evening fell!
Mbh.3.25.1185 And that bull of the Kuru race, the high-souled Yudhishthira, possessed of unrivalled strength and prowess, paid his homage unto that great Muni, reverenced by celestials and Rishis of men, and possessed of the splendour of blazing fire.
Mbh.3.25.1186 And that illustrious and all-knowing Muni, of unrivalled energy, beholding Draupadi and Yudhishthira and Bhima and Arjuna, in the midst of the ascetics, smiled, recollecting Rama in his mind.
Mbh.3.37.1904 SECTION XXXVII Vaisampayana said, After some time, Yudhishthira the just, remembering the command of the Muni Vyasa and calling unto himself that bull among men, Arjuna, possessed of great wisdom, addressed him in private.
Mbh.3.47.2434 And the great Muni, having approached the chief of the gods, bowed to him respectfully.
Mbh.3.50.2527 SECTION L Janamejaya said, Having sent the heroic sons of Pandu into exile, these lamentations, O Muni, of Dhritarashtra were perfectly futile.
Mbh.3.81.3957 And beholding Bhishma that foremost of the Kurus, reduced and emaciated by the observance of vows and the study of the Vedas, the Muni became filled with joy
Mbh.3.83.4268 And beholding this, O king, that Muni became ashamed and fell at the feet of the god.
Mbh.3.83.4278 And, O great Muni, I shall dwell with thee in this thy asylum.
Mbh.3.84.4570 Then should one, O king, go to the lake of the Muni Kausika, where Kusika's son, Viswamitra, obtained high success.
Mbh.3.85.4651 One should proceed next to the forest of Tungaka, with subdued senses and leading a Brahmacharya mode of life It was here that in olden days Muni Saraswata taught the Vedas to the ascetics.
Mbh.3.85.4733 Those foremost of Rishis, Valmiki, and Kasyapa, and Atreya, and Kundajathara, and Viswamitra, and Gautama, and Asita, and Devala, and Markandeya, and Galava, and Bharadwaja, and Vasishtha, and the Muni Uddalaka, and Saunaka with his son, and Vyasa, that best of ascetics, and Durvasas, that foremost of Munis, and Javali of great austerities, all these illustrious Rishis endued with wealth of asceticism, are staying in expectation of thee.
Mbh.3.85.4740 And thou art, O great king, celebrated in the world even as Muni or Ikshwaku, or the highly famous Puru or Vainya!
Mbh.3.89.4845 And it hath been heard by us that the sacred asylum of the Muni Visravas, had stood there, and that there was born the lord of treasures, Kuvera, having men for his vehicles.
Mbh.3.96.5083 And the Muni, endued with great ascetic merit, thereupon gave that girl created for himself to the king of the Vidharbhas who was then undergoing ascetic penances for obtaining offspring.
Mbh.3.97.5094 Thus addressed by the Muni, the king of the Vidharbhas swooned away.
Mbh.3.97.5095 And though unwilling to give the Muni his daughter, he dared not refuse.
Mbh.3.99.5184 Lomasa continued, Saying, So be it' that pious Muni thereupon knew his devout wife of equal behaviour.
Mbh.3.99.5186 And after the Muni had gone away, the foetus began to grow for seven years.
Mbh.3.99.5190 And the Muni, beholding his son possessed of such virtues, became highly glad.
Mbh.3.138.7035 O Muni, I shall be able to perform this work sacrifice, without any assistant'
Mbh.3.158.8000 And by his prophetic eye that virtuous Muni had already known the identity of those foremost of the Kurus, the sons of Pandu.
Mbh.3.183.9127 And while roaming in the wilderness of big trees and thickets of grass, he saw, at no great distance from him, a Muni with the skin of a black antelope for his upper garment, and killed him for a deer.
Mbh.3.183.9130 On hearing the account, O my son, and beholding the body of the Muni who had subsisted on fruits and roots, they were sorely afflicted in mind.
Mbh.3.183.9131 And they all set out enquiring here and there as they proceeded, as to whose son the Muni might be.
Mbh.3.183.9133 And saluting that great Muni, so constant in austerity, they all remained standing, while the Muni, on his part, busied himself about their reception.
Mbh.3.183.9134 And they said unto the illustrious Muni, By a freak of destiny, we have ceased to merit thy welcome: indeed, we have killed a Brahmana'
Mbh.3.183.9139 And then, O thou conqueror of hostile cities, the Muni Tarkshya, addressed them, saying, Ye princes, can this be the Brahmana of your killing?
Mbh.3.183.9155 Saying amen, O foremost scion of Bharata's race, and saluting the great Muni, all those princes joyously returned to their country
Mbh.3.185.9200 SECTION CLXXXV Markandeya continued, O thou conqueror of hostile cities, in this connection Saraswati too, when interrogated by that intelligent Muni Tarkshya, had said this.
Mbh.3.185.9206 Markandeya continued, Thus questioned by that cheerful Muni and seeing him eager to learn and endued with high intelligence, Saraswati addressed these pious and beneficial words to the Brahmana, Tarkshya'
Mbh.3.186.9252 On that must thou ascend, O great Muni, with the seven Rishis and take with thee all the different seeds which were enumerated by regenerate Brahmanas in days of yore, and separately and carefully must thou preserve them therein.
Mbh.3.187.9281 SECTION CLXXXVII Then the virtuous king Yudhishthira in all humility again enquired of the illustrious Markandeya, saying, O great Muni, thou hast seen many thousands of ages pass away.
Mbh.3.188.9475 And, O Muni, when fierce and malicious Daityas and Rakshasas that are incapable of being slain by even the foremost of the gods, are born on earth, I then take my birth in the families of virtuous men, and assuming human body restore tranquillity by exterminating all evils.
Mbh.3.189.9509 SECTION CLXXXIX Vaisampayana said Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, once more asked the great Muni Markandeya about the future course of the government of the Earth.
Mbh.3.189.9510 And Yudhishthira said, O thou foremost of all speakers, O Muni of Bhrigu's race, that which we have heard from thee about the destruction and re-birth of all things at the end of the Yuga, is, indeed, full of wonder!
Mbh.3.189.9516 Tell me all in detail, O Muni, for all that thou narratest is varied and delightful'
Mbh.3.191.9803 And king Dala did as he was directed and the queen then addressed the Muni, and said, O Vamadeva, let me be able to duly instruct this wretched husband of mine from day to day, imparting unto him words of happy import; and let me always wait upon and serve the Brahmanas, and by this acquire, O Brahmana, the sacred regions hereafter'
Mbh.3.191.9810 Markandeya continued, Hearing these words of the queen, that Muni, O thou foremost of the Kuru race, said, So be it'
Mbh.3.191.9811 And thereupon king Dala became highly glad and gave unto the Muni his Vami steeds, having bowed down unto him with reverence
Mbh.3.192.9827 And the boon-giving slayer of Vala, the divine ruler of those that know not old age, being seated at his ease, asked Vaka the following question, O sinless Muni, thou hast lived for a hundred years!
Mbh.3.196.9912 I am a Muni.
Mbh.3.199.10097 SECTION CLXLIX Vaisampayana said, King Yudhishthira, hearing from the illustrious Markandeya the story of the royal sage Indradyumna's regaining of Heaven, again asked the Muni, saying, O great Muni, tell me in what condition should a man practise charity in order to gain admission into the regions of Indra?
Mbh.3.199.10157 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing all this, Yudhishthira, along with his younger brothers, impelled by curiosity, again addressed the high-souled Markandeya, saying, O great Muni, what is the distance of Yama's region from that of men?
Mbh.3.199.10247 He that is always pure and decked with virtue, he that practises kindness all his life, is a Muni even though he may lead a domestic life.
Mbh.3.200.10298 SECTION CC Vaisampayana said, Having, O great king, heard from the illustrious Markandeya the history of the attainment of heaven by the royal sage Indradyumna, Yudhishthira, that bull of the Bharata race, once more asked that sinless Muni endued with great ascetic merit and long life, saying, Thou knowest, O virtuous one, the entire host of the gods, the Danavas, and the Rakshasas.
Mbh.3.200.10301 Thou knowest also, O Muni, many delightful stories about men, Snakes and Rakshasas; about gods, Gandharvas, and Yakshas, and about Kinnaras and Apsaras!
Mbh.3.200.10304 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by Yudhishthira, the great Muni Markandeya, O Bharata, then began the history of Dhundhumara
Mbh.3.202.10389 Thus addressed by the king, that Muni of immeasurable energy replied unto him, saying, So be it
Mbh.3.225.11373 The great Muni Viswamitra had, after the conclusion of the sacrifices of the seven Rishis, followed unseen the god of fire, while the latter was tortured with lust.
Mbh.3.225.11375 And he offered divine prayers to Mahasena and all the thirteen auspicious rites appertaining to childhood, such as the natal and other ceremonies, were all performed by the great Muni in respect of that child.
Mbh.3.225.11378 That great Muni then informed the seven Rishis, of the transformations of Swaha and told them that their wives were perfectly innocent.
Mbh.3.258.12639 And that one, having adopted the life of a Muni, with a cheerful heart entertained his guests also with food on such days.
Mbh.3.258.12642 And, O king, it came to pass that having heard of the virtuous Mudgala observant of vows, the Muni Durvasa, having space alone for his covering his accoutrements worn like that of maniac, and his head bare of hair, came there, uttering, O Pandava various insulting words.
Mbh.3.258.12654 In this way, Durvasa having made up his mind, during successive seasons presented himself for six several times before that best of sages living according to the Unchha mode; yet that Muni could not perceive any agitation in Mudgala's heart; and he found the pure heart of the pure-souled ascetic always pure.
Mbh.3.258.12669 Whilst the Muni Durvasa was speaking thus, a celestial messenger appeared before Mudgala, upon a car yoked with swans and cranes, hung with a neat work of bells, scented with divine fragrance, painted picturesquely, and possessed of the power of going everywhere at will.
Mbh.3.259.12679 O Muni, that region which is known as heaven, existeth there above us.
Mbh.3.259.12690 That world, O Muni, obtained as the fruit of one's own acts, is of this nature.
Mbh.3.259.12694 And, there, O Muni, dust doth not soils one's garments.
Mbh.3.259.12712 Wherefore should they have anger or aversion then, O Muni?
Mbh.3.259.12729 And, O Muni, this is another of the attributes of the fallen that, by reason of their merits, they take birth among men.
Mbh.3.259.12748 Having heard these words, the Muni bade farewell to the celestial messenger, and that virtuous one leading the Unchha mode of life, assumed perfect contentment.
Mbh.3.260.12758 SECTION CCLX Janamejaya said, While the high-souled Pandavas were living in those woods, delighted with the pleasant conversation they held with the Munis, and engaged in distributing the food they obtained from the sun, with various kinds of venison to Brahmanas and others that came to them for edibles till the hour of Krishna's meal, how, O great Muni, did Duryodhana and the other wicked and sinful sons of Dhritarashtra, guided by the counsels of Dussasana, Karna and Sakuni, deal with them?
Mbh.3.260.12765 And the illustrious Muni stayed there for a few days, while king Duryodhana, watchful of his imprecations, attended on him diligently by day and night.
Mbh.3.260.12766 And sometimes the Muni would say, I am hungry, O king, give me some food quickly'
Mbh.3.260.12770 And trying the prince in this way for a while, when the Muni found that the king Duryodhana was neither angered, nor annoyed, he became graciously inclined towards him.
Mbh.3.260.12776 Indeed, it had been agreed upon between himself and Karna and Dussasana as to what the boon should be that he would ask of the Muni if the latter were pleased with his reception.
Mbh.3.261.12794 And that sinless Muni, not knowing how the king would be able to provide a feast for him and his disciples, proceeded with the latter to perform his ablutions.
Mbh.3.261.12795 And that host of the Muni, of subdued passions, went into the stream for performing their ablutions.
Mbh.3.273.13258 SECTION CCLXXIII Markandeya said, The Muni named Visrava, who was begotten of half the soul of Pulastya, in a fit of passion, began to look upon Vaisravana with great anger.
Mbh.5.37.1956 Begetting sons and rendering them independent by making some provision for them, and bestowing maiden daughters on eligible persons, one should retire to the woods, and desire to live as a Muni.
Mbh.5.43.2338 O Muni, how also is asceticism mauna to be practised here'
Mbh.5.43.2442 He is not a Muni who practiseth only Yoga-meditation; nor he who liveth only in the woods having retired from the world.
Mbh.5.43.2443 He, however, is a Muni and is superior to all who knoweth his own nature.
Mbh.5.70.3512 He is called Madava, O Bharata, because of his practising as a Muni, concentration of mind on truth and Yoga-absorption.
Mbh.5.103.4792 Make an endeavour to secure him, for I am highly pleased at the thought of bestowing on this Naga, O Muni, my dear daughter
Mbh.5.104.4815 I hesitate, however, O great Muni, in consequence of the instability of the very cause that would not make that alliance lasting.
Mbh.5.110.5055 It is in this region that the daughter of Muni Harimedhas remained transfixed in the welkin in consequence of Surya's injunction couched in the words, Stop, Stop.
Mbh.5.112.5113 And thereupon, the Muni Galava rode on the back of Garuda.
Mbh.5.116.5260 Thus addressed by that maiden, the Muni Galava said these words unto king Haryyaswa, O Haryyaswa, O best of men, accept this damsel for a fourth part of the dower that I have settled, and beget only one son upon her'
Mbh.5.119.5343 And as soon as that son was born, the great Muni Viswamitra addressed him to both virtue and profit, and gave him those six hundred steeds.
Mbh.5.178.7986 I cannot venture to go back to my own city, O thou that art endued with wealth of asceticism, for shame and fear of disgrace, O great Muni!
Mbh.5.180.8063 This also was, O great Muni, the vow then made by thee, O Rama, the vow made by thee before Brahmanas after thou hadst conquered all the Kshatriyas, viz, that thou wouldst slay in battle the person, be he a Brahmana, a Kshatriya, a Vaisya, or a Sudra, who would be a foe to the Brahmanas.
Mbh.6.3.175 Vaisampayana continued, O best of kings, thus addressed by his son Dhritarashtra, that prince of poets, the Muni Vyasa concentrated his mind in supreme Yoga.
Mbh.6.26.1210 He whose mind is not agitated amid calamities, whose craving for pleasure is gone, who is freed from attachment to worldly objects, fear and wrath, is said to be a Muni of steady mind.
Mbh.6.26.1227 The restrained man is awake when it is night for all creatures; and when other creatures are awake that is night to a discerning Muni
Mbh.6.120.6593 I also heard them, through the power conferred on me by the Muni.
Mbh.7.198.11277 O great Muni, I desire to hear all this in detail'
Mbh.7.198.11316 From Narayana's asceticism was born a great Muni of the name of Nara, equal to Narayana himself.
Mbh.9.33.2419 Tell me all this in detail, O great Muni
Mbh.9.37.2754 Janamejaya said, Why is it called Kapalamochana, where the great Muni became freed from the Rakshasa's head?
Mbh.9.37.2776 There the great Muni Vishvamitra who had before been a Kshatriya became a Brahmana.
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.9.38.2803 Having said these words, that Muni of great energy proceeded to heaven.
Mbh.9.40.2908 The great Muni Vishvamitra, burning with jealousy at sight of the energy of Vasishtha, began to reflect on the matter.
Mbh.9.48.3527 Indeed, while the great Muni Jaigishavya resided there, Devala kept his eyes on him, never neglecting him at any time.
Mbh.9.48.3533 One day, however, O king, in the sight of that great Muni, a deep anxiety perturbed the heart of the highsouled Devala.
Mbh.12.31.1643 Hearing these words of the high-souled Parvata, Srinjaya began to beseech that saint for ordaining otherwise, saying, Let my son be long-lived, O Muni, through thy ascetic merit'
Mbh.12.90.5107 The eyes of the weak, of the Muni, and of the snake of virulent poison, should be regarded as unbearable.
Mbh.12.115.6521 One domestic animal, however, lived there permanently, never leaving the Muni at any time.
Mbh.12.115.6528 Beholding that fierce beast coming, O king, the dog, in fear of his life, addressed the Muni in these words.
Mbh.12.126.7215 The Muni said, A holy and great Rishi had been insulted by thy son.
Mbh.12.220.13365 Such a Brahmana will become a Muni always, a deity evermore, and sleepless forever, and one engaged in the pursuit of virtue only, even if he lives in the bosom of a family.
Mbh.12.260.15767 The Muni knew that the young Kulingas had attained to that stage of development.
Mbh.12.276.16898 Having established one's fire then and performing the sacrifices that are ordained, one should then retire into the woods and having lived as a forest-recluse one should then become a Muni by casting off everything and calmly waiting for dissolution'
Mbh.12.287.18004 Once on a time Galava, desirous of obtaining what was for his benefit, addressed Narada freed from error and fatigue, learned in the scriptures, gratified with knowledge, a thorough master of his senses, and with soul devoted to Yoga, and said, Those virtues, O Muni, by the possession of which a person becomes respected in the world, I see, dwell permanently in thee.
Mbh.12.299.18704 I regard that person to be Brahmana and Muni who subjugates the rising impulse of speech, the impulse of wrath appearing in the mind, the impulse of thirst after unworthy things, and the impulses of the stomach and the organ of pleasure.
Mbh.12.331.21216 Arrived at his presence, the great Muni, viz, the high-souled and Island-born Krishna, Suka walked round him and addressed him the usual enquiries.
Mbh.13.40.4376 Vipula said, Tell me, O Muni, what forms does Sakra assume when he presents himself.
Mbh.13.40.4407 Having said these words, the highly-blessed Muni, viz, Devasarman, intend upon performing a sacrifice, set out from his abode, O chief of the Bharatas.
Mbh.13.50.5130 Assuming the attitude of a wooden post, the great Muni sometimes laid himself down in the water and slept at ease.
Mbh.13.91.8139 Bhishma said, Listen to me, O ruler of men, as I tell thee how the Sraddha was introduced, the time of such introduction, the essences of the rite, and the Muni who conceived it.
Mbh.13.91.8141 In Atri's race was born a Muni of the name of Dattatreya.
Mbh.14.9.241 I find the fire-god come in his own embodiment, this day, therefore do thou, O Muni, offer him a seat and water, and a cow, and water for washing the feet
Mbh.16.8.354 Of tranquil soul, the great Muni further said, Take thy seat.
