See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.2.374 This parva then describes Arjuna's meeting on the way with Ulupi, the daughter of a Naga serpent; it then relates his visits to several sacred spots; the birth of Vabhruvahana; the deliverance by Arjuna of the five celestial damsels who had been turned into alligators by the imprecation of a Brahmana, the meeting of Madhava and Arjuna on the holy spot called Prabhasa; the carrying away of Subhadra by Arjuna, incited thereto by her brother Krishna, in the wonderful car moving on land and water, and through mid-air, according to the wish of the rider; the departure for Indraprastha, with the dower; the conception in the womb of Subhadra of that prodigy of prowess, Abhimanyu; Yajnaseni's giving birth to children; then follows the pleasure-trip of Krishna and Arjuna to the banks of the Jamuna and the acquisition by them of the discus and the celebrated bow Gandiva; the burning of the forest of Khandava; the rescue of Maya by Arjuna, and the escape of the serpent, and the begetting of a son by that best of Rishis, Mandapala, in the womb of the bird Sarngi.
Mbh.1.47.2435 The illustrious Jaratkaru of great ascetic merit, thus addressed, spake unto his wife these words, his upper lip quivering in anger, O amiable one of the Naga race, thou hast insulted me.
Mbh.1.67.3578 And Valadeva of exceeding strength was a portion of the Naga, Sesha.
Mbh.1.123.6661 And Karkotaka, Vasuki, Kachchhapa, Kunda and the great Naga Takshaka, these mighty and wrathful snakes possessed of high ascetic merit also came there.
Mbh.1.128.6883 The insensible son of Pandu sank down till he reached the Naga kingdom.
Mbh.1.173.8883 Thou seemest not to be of celestial or Asura or Yaksha or Rakshasa or Naga or Gandharva or human origin.
Mbh.1.215.10535 Hearing these words of Arjuna, Ulupi answered, There is a Naga of the name of Kauravya, born in the line of Airavata.
Mbh.1.215.10544 Tell me, therefore, O Naga maid, how I may act so that, while doing thy pleasure, I may not be guilty of any untruth or breach of duty'
Mbh.1.215.10565 The mighty Arjuna, spending the night in the mansion of the Naga rose with the sun in the morning.
Mbh.1.224.10930 In that forest dwelleth, with his followers and family, a Naga, called Takshaka, who is the friend of Indra.
Mbh.1.226.11091 Then Arjuna and Achyuta, filled with joy said unto Pavaka, O exalted one, furnished with weapons and knowing their use, possessed of cars with flags and flagstaffs, we are now able to fight with even all the celestials and the Asuras together, let alone the wielder of the thunderbolt desirous of fighting for the sake of the Naga his friend Takshaka'
Mbh.2.9.373 And Vasuki and Takshaka, and the Naga called Airavana; Krishna and Lohita; Padma and Chitra endued with great energy; the Nagas called Kamvala and Aswatara; and Dhritarashtra and Valahaka; Matimat and Kundadhara and Karkotaka and Dhananjaya; Panimat and the mighty Kundaka, O lord of the Earth; and Prahlada and Mushikada, and Janamejaya, all having auspicious marks and mandalas and extended hoods, these and many other snakes.
Mbh.2.21.910 There dwelt in old days those Nagas, Arvuda and Sakravapin, those persecutors of all enemies, as also the Naga Swastika and that other excellent Naga called Manu.
Mbh.3.66.3327 And answering, Fear not' he entered into the midst of the fire and beheld a mighty Naga lying in coils.
Mbh.3.66.3328 And the Naga with joined hands, and trembling, spake unto Nala, saying, O king, that I am a snake, Karkotaka by name.
Mbh.3.66.3362 And saying this, that Naga then gave unto Nala two pieces of celestial cloth.
Mbh.3.79.3896 This history, besides, of the Naga Karkotaka, of Damayanti, of Nala and of that royal sage Rituparna, is destructive of evil.
Mbh.3.82.4069 That sin-destroying tirtha known by the name of Vitasta, is situate in the country of the Kasmiras and is the abode of the Naga Takshaka.

Mbh.3.229.11552 Kadru introduces herself in a subtle form into the body of a pregnant woman and there she causes the destruction of the foetus, and the mother is made to give birth to a Naga serpent.
Mbh.3.263.12876 Methinks thou art a goddess, or a Yakshi, or a Danavi, or an excellent Apsara, or the wife of a Daitya, or a daughter of the Naga king, or a Rakshasi or the wife of Varuna, or of Yama, or of Soma, or of Kuvera, who, having assumed a human form, wanderest in these forests.
Mbh.3.270.13168 And after the destruction of the Naga world also in the subterranean regions in the same way, vast masses of many-coloured and loud-pealing clouds, with streaks of lightning, spreading along the entire welkin, had appeared on high.
Mbh.4.9.349 Art thou the daughter of a celestial, or art thou a female Naga?
Mbh.4.22.958 O best of smiters, lift him up from the earth even as Krishna had lifted up the Naga Kaliya from the Yamuna.
Mbh.5.98.4644 And Narada who knew all the residents of the nether regions then began to describe in detail unto his companion all about the dwellers of the Naga world'
Mbh.5.103.4786 Kanwa continued, Beholding Matali's gratification at seeing the Naga called Sumukha, Narada informed him of the nobility of his parentage and of his feats.
Mbh.5.103.4789 The father of this youth was, O Matali, the Naga called Chikura.
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.5.104.4823 Let this Naga then, proceeding with me and Narada, come to the Lord of heaven the chief of the celestials, O best of Nagas.
Mbh.5.104.4825 Blessed be thou, O Naga, let Sumukha, therefore, come with me to the presence of the Lord of the celestials'
Mbh.5.104.4834 At these words Sakra gave unto that Naga length of days.
Mbh.5.105.4839 SECTION CV Kanwa said, Meanwhile, O Bharata, the mighty Garuda heard what had happened, viz, the bestowal by Sakra of length of days on the Naga Sumukha.
Mbh.5.105.4845 I had selected this great Naga and had fixed time, for O god, I had intended to offer the meat of his body, as sustenance to my numerous progeny.
Mbh.5.109.5034 In this region is the city called Bhogavati that is ruled by Vasuki, by the Naga Takshaka and also by Airavata.
Mbh.6.91.4828 And when that hero, never retreating from battle, became inflamed with wrath, a Naga related to him by his mother's side, came to him.
Mbh.6.91.4829 Surrounded on all sides, in that battle by Nagas, that Naga, O king, assumed a huge form mighty as Ananta himself.
Mbh.6.91.4832 When that Naga of his mother's line was devoured through illusion, Iravat became confounded.
Mbh.6.108.5759 The valiant Bhishma of keen weapons, when excited with wrath in battle and bow in hand shooting his shafts, becometh as fierce as the mighty Naga Takshaka of virulent poison.
Mbh.8.53.3020 Then that slayer of hostile heroes, viz, the son of Pandu, paralysed the legs of the samsaptakas by repeatedly invoking, O monarch, the weapon called Naga.
Mbh.12.47.2395 Thou sleepest in Yoga on thy snake-decked sofa constituted by the thousand hoods of the Naga.
Mbh.12.354.23644 A mighty Naga, of righteous soul, dwells in the city that stands in that region.
Mbh.12.354.23645 That great Naga is known by the name of Padmanabha or Padma.
Mbh.12.354.23650 That Naga is always fond of guests.
Mbh.12.356.23680 Arrived there, he enquired of him, in proper words, about the Naga of whom he had heard from his guest, and instructed by him he pursued his journey.
Mbh.12.356.23681 With a clear idea of the purpose of his journey, the Brahmana then reached the house of the Naga.
Mbh.12.356.23685 Hearing these words, the chaste wife of the Naga, possessed of great beauty and devoted to the observance of all duties, showed herself.
Mbh.12.356.23692 It is for this reason that I have come today to the residence of the Naga, thy husband'
Mbh.12.356.23693 The wife of the Naga said, Reverend sir, my husband has gone to drag the car of Surya for a month.
Mbh.12.356.23703 Having said this repeatedly unto the wife of the Naga, that foremost of Brahmanas proceeded to the banks of the Gomati for residing there till the time of the Naga's return
Mbh.12.357.23704 SECTION CCCLVIII Bhishma continued, The Nagas of that city became exceedingly distressed when they saw that that Brahmana, devoted to the practice of penances, continued to reside in the forest, entirely abstaining all the while from food, in expectation of the arrival of the Naga chief.
Mbh.12.357.23705 All the kinsmen and relatives of the great Naga, including his brother and children and wife, assembling together, repaired to the spot where the Brahmana was staying.
Mbh.12.357.23707 Approaching the presence of the Brahmana and offering him due worship, the kinsmen and relatives of the great Naga said unto him these words fraught with candour, O Brahmana, endued with wealth of asceticism, this is the sixth day of thy arrival here, but thou sayest no word about thy food, O regenerate one, thou art devoted to righteousness.
Mbh.12.357.23711 We are all relations of the Naga chief with whom thou hast business.
Mbh.12.357.23720 Indeed, this vow of abstaining from all food that I am observing is in consequence of my regard for the Naga chief.
Mbh.12.358.23726 SECTION CCCLIX Bhishma said, Upon the expiry of the period of full fifteen days, the Naga chief Padmanabha, having finished his task of dragging the car of Surya and obtained the latter's permission, came back to his own house.
Mbh.12.358.23728 Having gone through these tasks, she took her seat by his side, The Naga then, refreshed from fatigue, addressed his dutiful and chaste wife, saying, I hope, my dear wife, that during my absence thou hast not been unmindful of worshipping the deities and guests agreeably to the instructions I gave thee, and according to the ordinances laid down in the scriptures.
Mbh.12.358.23731 The wife of the Naga said, The duty of disciples is to wait with reverence upon their preceptor accomplishing his bidding; that of Brahmanas is to study the Vedas and bear them in memory; that of servants is to obey the commands of their masters; that of the king is to protect his people by cherishing the good and chastising the wicked.
Mbh.12.359.23753 SECTION CCCLX The Naga said, O thou of sweet smiles, for whom hast thou taken that Brahmana?
Mbh.12.359.23763 The spouse of the Naga chief said, Judging by his simplicity and candour I know that that Brahmana is not any deity who subsists on air.
Mbh.12.359.23779 The Naga said, I had no arrogance due to pride.
Mbh.12.359.23784 In consequence, however, of the Naga having excess of wrath, they have become object of reproach with all persons
Mbh.12.360.23793 As he proceeded, he thought of the Brahman and wandered as to what the business could be that had brought him to the Naga city.
Mbh.12.360.23800 The Brahmana said, Know that my name is Dharmaranya, and that I have come hither for obtaining a sight of the Naga Padmanabha, O foremost of all regenerate persons.
Mbh.12.360.23805 The Naga said, Verily, thy conduct is exceedingly good.
Mbh.12.360.23808 Thou beholdest the Naga with eyes of affection.
Mbh.12.360.23809 I am that Naga, O learned Rishi, whom thou seekest.
Mbh.12.360.23815 The Brahmana said, O highly blessed Naga, I have come hither, moved by the desire of obtaining a sight of thee.
Mbh.12.360.23816 I have come here, ignorant as I am with all things, for asking thee about something, O Naga, relying on the Jiva-soul, I desire to attain to the Supreme Soul which is the end of the Jiva-soul.
Mbh.12.361.23823 The Naga said, The divine Surya is the refuge or home of innumerable wonders.
Mbh.12.362.23851 Nor is he a Naga.
Mbh.12.363.23864 JBH SECTION CCCLXV The Brahmana said, Without doubt, this is very wonderful, O Naga, I have been highly gratified by listening to thee.
Mbh.12.363.23867 The Naga said, The object that brought thee higher is still in thy breast, for thou hast not as yet disclosed it to me.
Mbh.12.363.23876 The Brahmana said, It is even so, O thou of great wisdom, O Naga that hast acquired a knowledge of the soul.
Mbh.12.363.23886 My object has been accomplished, O Naga
Mbh.13.17.1993 Thou art of the form of a snake for thou art identical with the mighty Naga named Sesha.
Mbh.13.132.11209 SECTION CXXXII Bhishma said, After this, the Grandsire Brahman, sprang from the primeval lotus and resembling the lotus in agreeableness and fragrance, addressed the deities with Vasava, the lord of Sachi, at their head, Yonder sits the mighty Naga who is a resident of the nether regions.
Mbh.14.54.2421 When I live in the order of the Nagas, I then act as a Naga, and when I live in the order of Yakshas or that of Rakshasas, I act after the manner of that order.
Mbh.16.4.167 Advancing forward and offering him the Arghya and water to wash his feet, and with diverse other rites, they all worshipped the mighty Naga and saluted him by making the usual enquiries.
Mbh.17.1.45 Ulupi, the daughter of the Naga chief, O thou of Kuntis race, entered the waters of Ganga.
