Mbh.1.1.10 Accomplished in speech, Sauti, thus questioned, gave in the midst of that big assemblage of contemplative Munis a full and proper answer in words consonant with their mode of life.

Mbh.1.1.95 Saying this, the Munis disappeared.
Mbh.1.8.1115 And he perceived that it was a female child, bright as the offspring of an Immortal and blazing, as it were, with beauty: And the great Brahmana, Sthulakesa, the first of Munis, seeing that female child, and filled with compassion, took it up and reared it.

Mbh.1.40.2149 O best of all the Munis, thy father too had done nothing to deserve this treatment, and it is for this that I am particularly sorry as if the punishment were mine
Mbh.1.42.2239 And the prince of snakes then spake unto that bull among Munis, Kasyapa, saying, Whither dost thou go with such speed?
Mbh.1.43.2270 And that foremost of Munis, viz, Kasyapa, of great prowess and gifted with spiritual knowledge, ascertaining that the period of life of that king of the Pandava race had really run out, returned, receiving from Takshaka as much wealth as he desired.

Mbh.1.123.6664 Those best of Munis beholding that wonderful sight, became amazed, and their love and affection for the children of Pandu was in consequence enhanced.
Mbh.1.126.6762 And the citizens of Hastinapura, hearing of the arrival of thousands of Charanas and Munis, were filled with wonder.

Mbh.1.179.9171 O foremost of Bharatas, that best of Munis, the illustrious Vasishtha himself performed the usual after-birth ceremonies of his grandson.
Mbh.1.211.10380 Whilst their soldiers threw into the water the sacrificial fires that were in the asylums of Munis with souls under complete control, the curses uttered by the illustrious Rishis in wrath, rendered abortive by the boons granted by Brahman, affected not the Asura brothers.
Mbh.1.228.11174 The Munis who were witnessing the battle from the skies, beholding the celestials defeated by Madhava and Arjuna, were filled with wonder.
Mbh.2.4.119 Janghabandhu, Raibhya, Kopavega, and Bhrigu: Harivabhru, Kaundinya, Vabhrumali, and Sanatana, Kakshivat, and Ashija, Nachiketa, and Aushija, Nachiketa, and Gautama; Painga, Varaha, Sunaka, and Sandilya of great ascetic merit: Kukkura, Venujangha, Kalapa and Katha, these virtuous and learned Munis with senses and souls under complete control, and many others as numerous, all well-skilled in the Vedas and Vedangas and conversant with rules of morality and pure and spotless in behaviour, waited on the illustrious Yudhishthira, and gladdened him by their sacred discourses.
Mbh.2.6.300 And they are ever worshipped by the gods and the Pitris, the Sadhyas, under-deities called Gana, by ascetics offering sacrifices, with souls under complete command, by peaceful Munis engaged without intermission in Vedic sacrifices with presents to Brahmanas.
Mbh.2.16.729 Those that have become Munis desirous of achieving tranquillity of souls, obtain yellow robes with ease.

Mbh.3.5.324 And at length they saw before them the woods, Kamyaka, the favourite haunt of Munis, situated by a level and wild plain on the banks of the Saraswati.
Mbh.3.5.325 And in those woods, O Bharata, abounding in birds and deer, those heroes began to dwell, entertained and comforted by the Munis.
Mbh.3.10.476 And the king with his son respectfully received that way-worn chief of Munis, with offerings of the Arghya and other rites.
Mbh.3.10.482 And, O exalted one, many Munis had come there to behold the high-souled Yudhishthira, dwelling in an ascetic asylum, clad in deer-skin and wearing matted locks.
Mbh.3.10.503 And, as if commissioned by fate, Maitreya, the best of Munis, overwhelmed by wrath, set his mind upon cursing Duryodhana!
Mbh.3.25.1182 And the illustrious king, that bull of the Kuru race, set himself to please all the Yatis and Munis and the principal Brahmanas in that forest, by offerings of excellent fruits and roots.
Mbh.3.30.1460 Truth-knowing Munis behold those differently.
Mbh.3.42.2264 And, lastly, he commenced to invoke the Mandara, that king of mountains, saying, O mountain, thou art ever the refuge of holy, heaven-seeking Munis of virtuous conduct and behaviour.
Mbh.3.42.2266 O king of mountains, O mountain, thou art the asylum of Munis, and thou holdest on thy breast numerous sacred shrines.
Mbh.3.81.3945 If, O sinless one, I with my brothers deserve thy favour, it behoveth thee, O best of Munis, to dispel the doubt that is in my mind.
Mbh.3.81.3948 Once, O blessed one, that foremost of virtuous men, Bhishma, while in the observance of the Pitrya vow, lived, O king, in the company of Munis in a delightful and sacred region, near the source of the Ganga, that is resorted to by the celestial Rishis and Gandharvas and the celestials themselves.
Mbh.3.82.4100 One should next, O virtuous one, proceed with subdued soul to Rudrakoti, where in olden days, O king, ten millions of Munis had assembled.
Mbh.3.82.4105 And gratified, O king, with the deep devotion of those Munis of subdued souls, Mahadeva granted them a boon, saying, From this day your righteousness shall grow'
Mbh.3.83.4260 O bull among Munis, what can be the reason of this thy present joy'
Mbh.3.84.4387 Sojourning thither, one obtaineth the merit of the Agnishtoma sacrifice, and goeth to the region of the Munis.
Mbh.3.84.4591 Proceeding next to the tirtha called Auddalaka frequented by Munis, and bathing there one is cleansed of all his sins.
Mbh.3.85.4652 When the Vedas had been lost in consequence of the Munis having forgotten them, Angirasa's son, seated at ease on the upper garments of the Munis duly spread out, pronounced distinctly and with emphasis the syllable Om.
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.3.99.5162 Then that best of Munis, Agastya, bursting out in laughter, said, How can he come out?
Mbh.3.102.5308 And during the darkness of the night those angry Daityas began to devour the Munis they found in woody retreats and sacred spots.
Mbh.3.102.5315 And every morning people saw the dead bodies of Munis emaciated with frugal diet, lying on the ground.
Mbh.3.158.8034 O Pandavas, till ye meet with Arjuna, do ye stay here, partaking of luscious fruits, and the food of the Munis.
Mbh.3.159.8048 Those best of men, the Pandavas, dwelt upon the Himavan, partaking of the food eaten by the Munis, and luscious fruit, and the flesh of deer killed with unpoisoned shafts and various kinds of pure honey.
Mbh.3.159.8052 And as the Pandavas were sporting there pleasantly, there came to see them some complacent vow-observing Munis and Charanas of high fortune, and pure souls.
Mbh.3.159.8072 And having ascended that summit, and thereby gladdened Kinnaras, and great Nagas, and Munis, and Gandharvas, and Rakshasas, that foremost of the Bharata line, gifted with exceeding strength described the abode of Vaisravana, adorned with golden crystal palaces surrounded on all sides by golden walls having the splendour of all gems, furnished with gardens all around, higher than a mountain peak, beautiful with ramparts and towers, and adorned with door-ways and gates and rows of pennons.
Mbh.3.168.8506 And desirous of victory, the Munis eulogised me with the same sweet-speeches that they had eulogised Indra with, at the war, which took place for the sake of Tara
Mbh.3.184.9169 The Munis praise thee, and besides thee there is none so versed in religious lore!
Mbh.3.184.9180 Markandeya continued, While those two men were thus disputing in the presence of the Munis, who were engaged in Vainya's sacrifice the latter enquired, What is the matter with them, that maketh them talk so vociferously'
Mbh.3.184.9182 And then Gautama, addressing that assembly of great Munis said, Listen, O great Brahmanas, to the point in dispute between us.
Mbh.3.184.9184 Markandeya continued, On hearing this, the great-mind Munis went instantly to Sanatkumara who was well versed in religion to clear their doubt.
Mbh.3.186.9253 And whilst there, O beloved of the Munis, thou shall wait for me, and I shall appear to thee like a horned animal, and thus, O ascetic, shall thou recognise me!
Mbh.3.187.9396 O best of Munis, entering within my body, rest thou there.
Mbh.3.187.9424 And that boy of blazing effulgence and bearing the mark of Sreevatsa and attired in yellow robes, gratified with me, smilingly addressed me, saying, O Markandeya, O best of Munis, having dwelt for some time within my body, thou hast been fatigued!
Mbh.3.188.9482 O best of Munis, my soul completely pervadeth all my creatures, but, O foremost of all regenerate ones, no one knoweth me.
Mbh.3.189.9517 Thus addressed, that foremost of Munis began his discourse again, delighting that tiger of the Vrishni race and the sons of Pandu as well.
Mbh.3.190.9651 And the Brahmanas will become good and honest, and the regenerate ones, devoted to ascetic austerities, will become Munis and the asylums of ascetics, which had before been filled with wretches will once more be homes of men devoted to truth, and men in general will begin to honour and practise truth.
Mbh.3.199.10215 Hearing this, the Munis of the forest of Naimisha were filled with delight.
Mbh.3.202.10397 He who is the Source and Creator of the Universe, viz, the Eternal and unfading Vishnu, He who is called by Munis crowned with ascetic success as the Supreme Lord of the Universe, that Being of great holiness, then lay in Yoga sleep on the wide hood of the Snake Sesha of immeasurable energy, and the Creator of the Universe, that highly-blessed and holy Hari, knowing no deterioration, lay on the hood of that Snake encircling the whole Earth and as the Deity lay asleep on that bed, a lotus, endued with great beauty and effulgence equal unto that of the Sun, sprang from his navel.
Mbh.3.205.10524 I know also the energy of Munis of souls under complete control and endued with blazing ascetic merit.
Mbh.3.207.10720 And in this matter of animal food, this rule has been laid down by Munis, Whoever partakes of animal food after having first offered it duly and respectfully to the gods and the manes, is not polluted by the act.
Mbh.3.258.12643 And having arrived there that best of Munis said unto the Brahmana.
Mbh.3.259.12698 And, O bull among Munis, higher and higher over such regions there are others endued with higher celestial virtues.
Mbh.3.259.12737 And having deliberated well, that best of Munis spake thus unto the celestial messenger, O messenger of the gods, I bow unto thee.
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.3.261.12796 Meanwhile, O king, the excellent princess Draupadi, devoted to her husbands, was in great anxiety about the food to be provided for the Munis.
Mbh.3.261.12814 Beholding Vasudeva, Draupadi bowed down to him in great joy and informed him of the arrival of the Munis and every other thing.
Mbh.3.261.12822 Then the long-armed Krishna, that soother of miseries, said unto Bhimasena, Do thou speedily invite the Munis to dinner.
Mbh.3.261.12823 Then, O good king, the celebrated Bhimasena quickly went to invite all those Munis, Durvasa and others, who had gone to the nearest stream of transparent and cool water to perform their ablutions.
Mbh.3.261.12838 Then Bhimasena not beholding those excellent Munis in the celestial river, made a search after them here and there at all the landing places.
Mbh.3.270.13143 And seeing those Munis there, he saluted them also.
Mbh.3.270.13182 O king of Sindhu, hast thou not heard of the wonderful achievements of Vishnu, described to thee by the Munis and the Brahmanas learned in the Vedas?
Mbh.3.271.13219 Vaisampayana said, Having defeated Jayadratha and rescued Krishna, the virtuous king Yudhishthira took his seat by the side of that best of Munis.
Mbh.3.313.15583 And all those foremost of Yatis and Munis versed in the Vedas, exceedingly desirous of again beholding the Pandavas, went back to their homes.
Mbh.5.108.4996 It was here that the smoke-eating Munis are the smoke of sacrificial fires.
Mbh.5.111.5072 Except by Nara and Narayana, he is incapable of being seen by the diverse classes of Munis, the gods with Vasava at their head, the Gandharvas, the Yakshas, and the Siddhas.
Mbh.5.111.5079 It is in this region that Kuvera's gardens called Chitraratha lie, and it is here that the asylum of the Munis called the Vaikhanasas is situate.
