Mbh.1.1.153 When I heard Narada, declare that Krishna and Arjuna were Nara and Narayana and he Narada had seen them together in the regions of Brahma, then, O Sanjaya, I had no hope of success.
Mbh.1.1.204 Thou hast heard, O Raja, of the greatly powerful men of vast exertions, spoken of by Vyasa and the wise Narada; men born of great royal families, resplendent with worthy qualities, versed in the science of celestial arms, and in glory emblems of Indra; men who having conquered the world by justice and performed sacrifices with fit offerings to the Brahmanas, obtained renown in this world and at last succumbed to the sway of time.

Mbh.1.209.10297 And one day, while all those illustrious heroes were so seated, there came unto them the celestial Rishi Narada, in course of his wanderings.
Mbh.1.209.10304 Hearing of the Rishi's arrival Draupadi, purifying herself properly, came with a respectful attitude to where Narada was with the Pandavas.
Mbh.1.209.10305 The virtuous princess of Panchala, worshipping the celestial Rishi's feet, stood with joined hands before him, properly veiled, The illustrious Narada, pronouncing various benedictions on her, commanded the princess to retire.

Mbh.1.210.10354 Narada continued, Hearing these words of Brahman, Sunda and Upasunda said, O Grandsire, let us have no fear then from any created thing, mobile or immobile, in the three worlds, except only from each other'
Mbh.1.211.10366 SECTION CCXII Rajya-labha Parva continued Narada continued, As soon as those festivities came to an end, the brothers Sunda and Upasunda, desirous of the Sovereignty of the three worlds, took counsel and commanded their forces to be arranged.
Mbh.1.212.10400 SECTION CCXIII Rajya-labha Parva continued Narada continued, Then the celestial Rishis, the Siddhas, and the high-souled Rishis possessing the attributes of tranquillity and self-restraint, beholding that act of universal slaughter, were afflicted with great grief.
Mbh.1.212.10421 Narada continued, Bowing unto the Grandsire and saying, So be it, the damsel walked round the celestial conclave.
Mbh.1.213.10433 SECTION CCXIV Rajya-labha Parva continued Narada continued, Meanwhile the Asura brothers having subjugated the earth were without a rival.
Mbh.1.213.10462 Narada continued, It was thus that Asuras, ever united and inspired by the same purpose slew each other in wrath for the sake of Tilottama.
Mbh.1.213.10464 Vaisampayana continued, The illustrious Pandavas, thus addressed by the great Rishi Narada, consulting with one another, established a rule amongst themselves in the presence of the celestial Rishi himself endued with immeasurable energy.
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.1.213.10467 Thus, O Janamejaya, did the Pandavas urged by Narada, established a rule amongst themselves in regard to their common wife.
Mbh.1.218.10663 As we were thinking of it, in almost a moment, O Bharata, we beheld even the eminent celestial Rishi Narada.
Mbh.2.5.125 SECTION V Lokapala Sabhakhayana Parva Vaisampayana said, While the illustrious Pandavas were seated in that Sabha along with the principal Gandharvas, there came, O Bharata, unto that assembly the celestial Rishi Narada, conversant with the Vedas and Upanishadas, worshipped by the celestials acquainted with histories and Puranas, well-versed in all that occurred in ancient kalpas cycles, conversant with Nyaya logic and the truth of moral science, possessing a complete knowledge of the six Angas viz, pronunciation, grammar, prosody, explanation of basic terms, description of religious rites, and astronomy.
Mbh.2.5.140 Thus worshipped by the Pandavas and the great Rishis, Narada possessing a complete mastery over the Vedas, said unto Yudhishthira the following words bearing upon religion, wealth, pleasures and salvation.
Mbh.2.5.141 Narada said, Is the wealth thou art earning being spent on proper objects?
Mbh.2.5.272 Vaisampayana continued, The great ascetic Narada, having answered Yudhishthira thus, again asked that just ruler-Do the officers of thy government, O king, that are paid from the taxes levied on the community, take only their just dues from the merchants that come to thy territories from distant lands impelled by the desire of gain?
Mbh.2.5.285 And gratified with everything he heard, the monarch said unto Narada of celestial form, I shall do all that thou hast directed, for my knowledge hath expanded under thy advice'
Mbh.2.5.287 Narada again spoke, saying, That king who is thus employed in the protection of four orders, Brahmanas, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas, and Sudras, passeth his days here happily and attaineth hereafter to the region of Sakra heaven
Mbh.2.6.293 Vaisampayana continued, Yudhishthira, the son of Pandu, possessed of great glory, having received with reverence the words of Narada and having also answered the Rishi thus, reflected for a moment.
Mbh.2.6.294 And perceiving a proper opportunity, the monarch, seated beside the Rishi, asked Narada sitting at his ease and capable of going into every world at will, in the presence of that assembly of kings, saying, Possessed of the speed of mind, thou wanderest over various and many worlds created in days of yore by Brahma, beholding everything.
Mbh.2.6.296 Hearing these words of Yudhishthira the just, Narada smilingly answered the son of Pandu in these sweet accents, Narada said, O child, O king I did neither see nor hear of ever before amongst men, any assembly room built of gems and precious stones like this of thine, O Bharata.
Mbh.2.6.302 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by Narada, the high-souled king Yudhishthira the just, with his brothers and all those foremost of Brahmanas seated around him, joined his hands in entreaty.
Mbh.2.6.303 And the monarch then asked Narada, saying, Describe unto us all those assembly rooms.
Mbh.2.6.313 Thus addressed by the son of Pandu, Narada replied, saying, O monarch, hear ye all about those celestial assembly rooms one after another
Mbh.2.7.314 SECTION VII Narada said, the celestial assembly room of Sakra is full of lustre.
Mbh.2.8.336 SECTION VIII Narada said, O Yudhisthira, I shall now describe the assembly house of Yama, the son of Vivaswat, which, O son of Pritha, was built by Viswakarma.
Mbh.2.9.362 SECTION IX Narada said, O Yudhishthira, the celestial Sabha of Varuna is unparalleled in splendour.
Mbh.2.10.384 SECTION X Narada said, Possessed of great splendour, the assembly house of Vaisravana, O king, is a hundred yojanas in length and seventy yojanas in breadth.
Mbh.2.11.416 SECTION XI Narada said, Listen to me, O child, as I tell thee of the assembly house of the Grandsire, that house which none can describe, saying it is such.
Mbh.2.12.468 Narada said, O king of kings, I shall tell thee all that thou askest me about Harischandra, I shall presently tell thee of his high excellence.
Mbh.2.12.501 Vaisampayana said, O Janamejaya, having said this unto the son of Pritha, Narada went away, accompanied by those Rishis with whom he had come.
Mbh.2.12.502 And after Narada had gone away, king Yudhishthira, O thou of the Kuru race, began to think, along with his brothers, of that foremost of sacrifices called Rajasuya'
Mbh.2.13.503 SECTION XIII Vaisampayana said, Yudhishthira, having heard these words of Narada, began to sigh heavily.
Mbh.2.35.1462 And those illustrious Rishis with Narada as their foremost, seated at their ease with those royal sages within that enclosure, looked like the gods seated in the mansion of Brahma in the company of the celestial Rishis.
Mbh.2.35.1470 And Narada, beholding the fortunate Yudhisthira's prosperity that was born of that sacrifice, became highly gratified.
Mbh.2.35.1471 Beholding that vast concourse all the Kshatriyas, the Muni Narada, O king of men, became thoughtful.
Mbh.2.35.1473 And knowing, O son of the Kuru race, that that was a concourse of incarnate gods, Narada thought in his mind of Hari with eyes like lotus-petals.
Mbh.2.35.1475 And Narada knew that the exalted and holy Narayana, also called Sambhu the lord of the universe, having commanded all the celestials thus, had taken his birth in the race of Yadus and that foremost of all perpetuator of races, having sprung from the line of the Andhaka-Vrishnis on earth was graced with great good fortune and was shining like the moon herself among stars.
Mbh.2.35.1476 Narada knew that Hari the grinder of foes, whose strength of arm was ever praised by all the celestials with Indra among them, was then living in the world in human form.
Mbh.2.35.1478 Such was the vision of Narada the omniscient who knew Hari or Narayana to be that Supreme Lord whom everybody worshipped with sacrifice.
Mbh.2.35.1479 And Narada, gifted with great intelligence and the foremost of all persons and conversant with morality, thinking of all this, sat at that sacrifice of the wise king Yudhisthira the just with feelings of awe.
Mbh.2.38.1580 Then Narada clad in black deer-skin, speaking of both the future and the past, that dispeller of all doubts, fully acquainted with all the worlds, said in the midst of innumerable creatures, these words of the clearest import, Those men that will not worship the lotus-eyed Krishna should be regarded as dead though moving, and should never be talked to on any occasion
Mbh.2.45.1856 The illustrious Rishi Narada said that as a consequence of the Rajasuya sacrifice three kinds of portents, viz, celestial, atmospherical and terrestrial ones happen.
Mbh.2.52.2180 Then Dhaumya and Vyasa, of great ascetic merit, with Narada and Asita's son Devala, standing before performed the ceremony of sprinkling the sacred water over the king.
Mbh.2.76.3265 Narada and this thy priest Dhaumya will now become thy instructors.
Mbh.3.3.264 Brahma himself had communicated this hymn to the illustrious Sakra, and from Sakra was it obtained by Narada and from Narada, by Dhaumya.
Mbh.3.12.637 Even Narada it was who hath told me this!
Mbh.3.12.651 O exalted one, Narada calleth thee the god of the Sadhyas, and of the Sivas, as alone the Creator and the Lord of all things.
Mbh.3.19.960 Then all the celestials with Indra and the lord of treasures Kubera at their head sent Narada and the god of wind endued with the speed of the mind.
Mbh.3.24.1156 And O bull of the Bharata race, thou hast always waited with reverence upon Brahmanas including Dwaipayana and others, and Narada of great ascetic merit, who with senses under control, ever goeth to the gates of all the world from the world of the gods unto that of Brahma, including that of the Gandharvas and Apsaras!
Mbh.3.26.1238 And Dwaipayana and Narada and Jamadagnya and Prithusravas; and Indradyumna and Bhalaki and Kritachetas and Sahasrapat; and Karnasravas and Munja and Lavanaswa and Kasyapa; and Harita and Sthulakarana and Agnivesya and Saunaka; and Kritavak and Suvakana Vrihadaswa and Vibhavasu; and Urdharetas and Vrishamitra and Suhotra and Hotravahana; these and many other Brahmanas of rigid vows then adored Yudhishthira like Rishis adoring Purandara in heaven
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.3.43.2304 There he met with the Sadhyas, the Viswas, the Marutas, the twin Aswins, the Adityas, the Vasus, the Rudras, the Brahmarshis of the great splendour, and numerous royal sages with Dilipa at their head, and Tumvura and Narada, and that couple of Gandharvas known by the names of Haha and Huhu.
Mbh.3.54.2718 And at the juncture, those foremost of celestial Rishis possessed of great splendour, of great wisdom and great vows, namely, Narada and Parvata, having arrived in course of their wandering at the regions of Indra entered the mansion of the lord of the immortals, receiving proper worship.
Mbh.3.54.2720 And Narada said, O lord, O divine one, peace attendeth us in every respect.
Mbh.3.54.2723 Hearing the words of Narada the slaver of Vala and Vritra said, Those righteous rulers of the earth who fight renouncing all desire of life, and who meet death when their time is come by means of weapons, without flying from the field, theirs is this region, everlasting unto them and granting all desires, even as it is to me.
Mbh.3.54.2726 Thus addressed by Sakra, Narada replied, Listen, O Mahavat, why seest not thou the kings now?
Mbh.3.54.2733 And all of them heard the words of Narada fraught with grave import.
Mbh.3.66.3329 I had deceived the great Rishi Narada of high ascetic merit, and by him have I been cursed in wrath, O king of men, even in words such as these: Stay thou here like an immobile thing, until one Nala taketh thee hence.
Mbh.3.81.3938 And at that time he saw before him the celestial Rishi Narada blazing with Brahmi beauty and like unto a fire flaming up in consequence of sacrificial libation.
Mbh.3.81.3942 And the illustrious Rishi Narada, accepting that worship, comforted the son of Dharma in proper terms.
Mbh.3.81.3944 At this, the royal son of Dharma bowing with his brothers unto Narada, who was the revered of the celestials, told him with joined hands, O thou that art highly blessed and worshipped by all the worlds when thou art gratified with me, I regard all my wishes in consequence of thy grace, as already fulfilled, O thou of excellent vows!
Mbh.3.81.3947 Narada said, Listen, O king, with attention, to what the intelligent Bhishma had heard before from Pulastya!
Mbh.3.83.4206 To the east of Saraka, O chief of the Kurus, there is an auspicious tirtha known by the name of Anajanma, of the high-souled Narada.
Mbh.3.83.4207 He that bathes there, O Bharata, obtaineth, after death, at the command of Narada various unrivalled regions.
Mbh.3.85.4725 Narada continued, Having cheerfully spoken thus, the illustrious Rishi Pulastya, well-pleased, bidding Bhishma farewell, disappeared there and then.
Mbh.3.85.4743 Vaisampayana continued, O great king, having comforted the monarch thus, the illustrious Rishi Narada, bidding farewell to the king, disappeared there and then.
Mbh.3.86.4745 SECTION LXXXVI Vaisampayana continued, Having ascertained the opinion of his brothers, and of the intelligent Narada, king Yudhishthira, addressing Dhaumya, who was like unto the Grandsire himself, said, I have for the acquisition of arms, sent away that tiger among men, Jishnu, whose prowess is incapable of being baffled, and who is possessed of long arms and immeasurable intelligence.
Mbh.3.86.4749 And this is also what Narada knoweth, for he hath always spoken so unto me.
Mbh.3.88.4834 Regarding it the celestial Rishi Narada of great intelligence hath recited an ancient sloka.
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.3.93.4980 Just at this time, the blessed Vyasa, as also Parvata and Narada, all endued with high intelligence, came to Kamyaka for seeing the son of Pandu.
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.3.107.5506 And Narada, whose practice of austerities was very great, when he beheld them reduced to ashes, came to Sagara's side, and gave the information to him.
Mbh.3.134.6811 Ashtavakra said, The two friends, Indra and Agni, ever move together; the two celestial sages are Narada and Parvata; twins are the Aswinikumaras; two is the number of the wheels of a car; and it is as a couple that husband and wife live together, as ordained by the deity
Mbh.3.174.8714 At such a moment, O king, sent by the celestials, Narada arrived there and addressed Partha in these sweet words, O Arjuna, Arjuna, do thou not discharge the celestial weapons.
Mbh.3.182.9058 Vaisampayana continued, When they had all taken their seats, Narada also, the divine saint, of purified soul, came on a visit to Pandu's sons.
Mbh.3.182.9060 Then the godlike saint, Narada, learning that they were about to hear the speech of Markandeya, expressed his assent to the arrangement.
Mbh.3.193.9860 And at this juncture Narada appeared there, and beholding what had happened, the celestial Rishi asked, Why is it that ye both stand here blocking each other's way'
Mbh.3.193.9861 And thus questioned both of them spoke to Narada saying, O holy one, do not speak so.
Mbh.3.193.9865 Thus addressed by them, Narada recited three slokas.
Mbh.3.193.9875 And having said so Narada became silent, and hearing what Narada had said the king of the Kuru race walking round Sivi, and praising his numerous achievements, gave him the way and went on in his course.
Mbh.3.193.9876 It was even thus that Narada had described the high blessedness of the royal Kshatriyas
Mbh.3.197.9964 And after the sacrifice was completed, Ashtaka was proceeding on his car along with his brothers when they all beheld Narada coming that way and they saluted the celestial Rishi and said unto him, Ride thou on this car with us.
Mbh.3.197.9965 And Narada, saying, So be it, mounted on the car, and one among those kings having gratified the holy and celestial Rishi Narada, said, O Holy One, I desire, to ask thee something'
Mbh.3.197.9977 And after Narada had said so, one of them again enquired, saying, Three of us then will stay in heaven.
Mbh.3.197.10004 And Narada said, In course of my wanderings I arrived at the abode of Vasumanas.
Mbh.3.197.10017 And Narada answered, saying, Sivi will go, but I will fall down'
Mbh.3.197.10020 And Narada said, I am not the equal of Sivi.
Mbh.3.292.14251 SECTION CCLXLII Markandeya continued, On one occasion, O Bharata, when that king, the lord of the Madras, was seated with Narada in the midst of his court, engaged in conversation, Savitri, accompanied by the king's counsellors, came to her father's abode after having visited various sacred regions and asylums.
Mbh.3.292.14252 And beholding her father seated with Narada, she worshipped the feet of both by bending down her head.
Mbh.3.292.14253 And Narada then said, Whither had this thy daughter gone?
Mbh.3.292.14266 At these words of hers, Narada said, Alas, O king, Savitri hath committed a great wrong, since, not knowing, she hath accepted for her lord this Satyavan of excellent qualities!
Mbh.3.292.14273 Narada replied, saying, In energy Satyavan is like unto the sun, and in wisdom like unto Vrihaspati!
Mbh.3.292.14277 Narada said, In bestowal of gifts according to his power, the mighty son of Dyumatsena is like unto Sankriti's son Rantideva.
Mbh.3.292.14286 Narada then said, He hath one only defect that hath overwhelmed all his virtues.
Mbh.3.292.14292 The illustrious Narada honoured by even the gods, sayeth, that Satyavan will have to cast off his body within a year, his days being numbered'
Mbh.3.292.14299 Narada then said, O best of men, the heart of thy daughter Savitri wavereth not!
Mbh.3.292.14305 Narada said, May the bestowal of thy daughter Savitri be attended with peace!
Mbh.3.292.14308 Markandeya continued, Having said this, Narada rose up into the sky and went to heaven.
Mbh.3.293.14310 SECTION CCLXLIII Markandeya said, Having pondered over these words of Narada about his daughter's marriage, the king began to make arrangements about the nuptials.
Mbh.3.293.14340 But the words spoken by Narada were present night and day in the mind of the sorrowful Savitri
Mbh.3.294.14342 And as the words that had been spoken by Narada were ever present in the mind of Savitri, she had counted the days as they passed.
Mbh.3.294.14357 And the king's daughter, reflecting on those words of Narada, remained, expecting the hour and the moment.
Mbh.3.296.14665 The high-souled Narada had predicted the death of my husband.
Mbh.5.11.477 And Viswavasu and Narada and bevies of celestial nymphs and bands of Gandharvas and the six seasons in living shapes, attended upon the king of the gods.
Mbh.5.49.2817 Just this is what Narada, conversant with the Vedas, had said unto the Vrishnis.
Mbh.5.61.3290 Formerly, Dwaipayana-Vyasa and Narada of great ascetic austerities, and Rama, the son of Jamadagni, told us this.
Mbh.5.94.4427 And beholding those Rishis with Narada at their head, he of Dasarha's race, slowly addressed Bhishma the son of Santanu, saying, O king, the Rishis have come to see this earthly conclave of ours.
Mbh.5.98.4634 SECTION XCVIII Kanwa said, When Matali was wending his way, he saw the great Rishi Narada proceeding at his pleasure to pay a visit to Varuna the god of the waters.
Mbh.5.98.4635 And beholding Matali, Narada asked him, saying, Whither dost thou go?
Mbh.5.98.4637 Thus addressed on the way by Narada who was proceeding towards his destination, Matali duly informed Narada, of his mission.
Mbh.5.98.4641 And penetrating then into nether regions, that illustrious couple, Matali and Narada, beheld that Regent of the world, the Lord of the waters.
Mbh.5.98.4642 And there Narada received worship due to a celestial Rishi, and Matali received that equal to what is offered to the great Indra.
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.5.98.4645 And Narada said, Thou hast, O charioteer, seen Varuna surrounded by his sons and grandsons.
Mbh.5.99.4673 SECTION XCIX Narada continued, Here in the very centre of the world of the Nagas is situated the city known by the name of Patalam.
Mbh.5.99.4697 Hearing those words of Narada, Matali answered him, saying, No one here seems to me to be eligible.
Mbh.5.100.4699 SECTION C Narada continued, Here is that spacious and celebrated city of cities, called Hiranyapura, belonging to the Daityas and Danavas, possessing a hundred diverse kinds of illusion.
Mbh.5.100.4719 Thus addressed, Matali answered Narada, saying, O celestial Rishi, it behoveth me not to do anything that may be disagreeable to dwellers of heaven.
Mbh.5.101.4725 SECTION CI Narada said, This region belongeth to the birds, all of whom possess excellent feathers.
Mbh.5.102.4743 SECTION CII Narada said, The region where we now are is called Rasatala and is the seventh stratum below the Earth.
Mbh.5.103.4762 SECTION CIII Narada said, This foremost of cities that thou beholdest and which resembles the Amaravati of the chief of the celestials himself, is known by the name of Bhogavati.
Mbh.5.103.4780 And after Narada had ceased speaking, the celestial charioteer with gratified mind asked the Rishi, saying, Of what race is he the delighter, that comely youth of great radiance, who standeth before Aryaka of Kauravya's line?
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.5.103.4791 Hearing this Matali became highly pleased, and addressing Narada, the charioteer said, This best of Nagas is, O sire, very acceptable to me for a son-in-law.
Mbh.5.104.4793 SECTION CIV Narada then said, This one is the charioteer of the name of Matali.
Mbh.5.104.4812 Kanwa continued, Thus addressed by Narada, Aryaka beholding his grandson elected as a bridegroom and remembering the death of his son was filled with delight and sorrow at the same time.
Mbh.5.104.4813 And he then addressed Narada and said, How, O celestial Rishi, can I desire Gunakesi for a daughter-in-law!
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.5.104.4828 Narada then represented the whole story about Matali and his choice'
Mbh.5.104.4829 Kanwa continued, Hearing all that Narada said, Vishnu directed Purandara, the Lord of the universe, saying, Let Amrita be given to this youth, and let him be made immortal like gods themselves.
Mbh.5.104.4830 Let Matali, and Narada, and Sumukha, O Vasava, all attain their cherished wish through thy grace'
Mbh.5.104.4838 And Narada and Aryaka also filled with delight at the success of their object, went away, after having worshipped the glorious chief of the celestials
Mbh.5.105.4894 This great ascetic Narada witnessed with his own eyes the incident I have related to thee which shows the greatness of Vishnu, and know that this Krishna is that bearer of the discus and the mace'
Mbh.5.106.4905 And Narada too said much.
Mbh.5.106.4907 Vaisampayana continued, Narada said, Persons that listen to the counsels of friends are rare.
Mbh.5.107.4939 SECTION CVII Narada said, Thus addressed by Viswamitra of great intelligence Galava was filled with such anxiety that he could not sit or lie down, or take his food.
Mbh.5.112.5112 Narada continued, Thus addressed, the son of Vinata replied unto that Brahmana saying, Mount thou on my back'
Mbh.5.112.5137 Narada continued, Unto Galava uttering these and many other words of entreaty and sorrow, the son of Vinata, without slackening his speed, laughingly replied, saying, Thou hast little wisdom, O regenerate Rishi, since thou wishest to put an end to thy own life.
Mbh.5.113.5144 SECTION CXIII Narada said, Alighting then on the peak of the Rishabha, the Brahmana and the Bird beheld a Brahmana lady of the name of Sandili, engaged there on ascetic penances.
Mbh.5.114.5184 SECTION CXIV Narada said, Garuda then, that foremost of winged beings, addressed the cheerless Galava and said, Because it is created by Agni, in the bowels of the earth and augmented by Vayu, and because also the earth itself is said to be Hiranmaya, therefore, is wealth called Hiranya.
Mbh.5.115.5215 SECTION CXV Narada said, Thus addressed by Suparna in excellent words fraught with truth, that performer of thousand sacrifices, that foremost of givers, that liberal ruler of all the Kasis, the lord Yayati, revolving those words in his mind and reflecting on them coolly, and seeing before him his dear friend, Tarkshya, and that bull among Brahmanas, Galava, and regarding the alms sought as an indication, highly praiseworthy, of Galava's ascetic merit, and in view particularly of the fact that those two came to him having passed over all the kings of the Solar race, said, Blessed is my life today, and the race also in which I am born, hath, indeed, been blessed today.
Mbh.5.116.5242 SECTION CXVI Narada said, That best of monarchs, king Haryyaswa, after reflecting for a long while and breathing a long and hot sigh about the birth of a son, at last said, Those six limbs that ought to be high are high in this maiden.
Mbh.5.116.5252 Narada continued, Hearing these words, that royal sage, king Haryyaswa, filled with sorrow, but blinded by lust, addressed Galava, that foremost of Rishis, saying, I have only two hundred steeds about me of the kind wanted by thee, although of other kinds all worthy of sacrifice, I have many thousand moving about in my dominions, O Galava, I desire to beget only one son upon this damsel.
Mbh.5.117.5270 SECTION CXVII Narada said, Galava then, addressing Madhavi, said, The ruler of the Kasis is an illustrious king known by the name of Divodasa.
Mbh.5.117.5275 Narada Continued, When the muni came before that king he was received with due hospitality by the latter.
Mbh.5.117.5285 And the royal sage then sported with her, as Surya with Prabhavati, Agni with Swaha, Vasava with Sachi, Chandra with Rohini, Yama with Urmila, Varuna with Gauri, Kuvera with Riddhi, Narayana with Lakshmi, Sagara with Jahnavi, Rudra with Rudrani, the Grandsire with Saraswati, Vasishtha's son Saktri with Adrisyanti, Vasishtha with Arundhati called also Akshamala, Chyavana with Sukanya, Pulastya with Sandhya, Agastya with the princess of Vidarbha Lopamudra, Satyavan with Savitri, Bhrigu with Puloma, Kasyapa with Aditi, Richika's son Jamadagni with Renuka, Kusika's son Viswamitra with Himavati, Vrihaspati with Tara, Sukra with Sataprava, Bhumipati with Bhumi, Pururavas with Urvasi, Richika with Satyavati, Manu with Saraswati, Dushyanta with Sakuntala, the eternal Dharma with Dhriti, Nala with Damayanti, Narada, with Satyavati, Jaratkaru with Jaratkaru, Pulastya with Pratichya, Urnayus with Menaka, Tumvuru with Rambha, Vasuki with Satasirsha, Dhananjaya with Kamari, Rama with the princess of Videha Sita, or Janardana with Rukmini.
Mbh.5.118.5289 SECTION CXVIII Narada said, The illustrious Madhavi, faithful to her promise, abandoning that prosperity and once more becoming a maiden, followed the footsteps of the Brahmana Galava.
Mbh.5.119.5318 SECTION CXIX Narada said, Seeing Galava, Vinata's son smilingly addressed him, saying, By good luck it is, O Brahmana, that I behold thee successful'
Mbh.5.120.5350 SECTION CXX Narada said, King Yayati then, desirous again of disposing of his daughter in Swayamvara, went to a hermitage on the confluence of the Ganga and the Yamuna, taking Madhavi with him on a chariot, her person decked with garlands of flowers.
Mbh.5.121.5373 SECTION CXXI Narada said, Removed from his place and pushed away from his seat with heart trembling in fear, and consumed by burning remorse, with his garlands dimmed in lustre and his knowledge clouded, shorn of his crown and bracelets, with head swimming and every limb relaxed divested of ornaments and robes, incapable of being recognised, sometimes not seeing the other residents of heaven, filled with despair, and his understanding a perfect blank, king Yayati fell headlong towards the earth.
Mbh.5.121.5404 Narada continued, About this time, Madhavi, in course of her purposeless wanderings, came there.
Mbh.5.122.5420 SECTION CXXII Narada said, As soon as that bull among men, king Yayati was recognised by those virtuous persons, he rose again to heaven, without having had to touch the surface of the earth.
Mbh.5.123.5440 SECTION CXXIII Narada said, Sent back to heaven by those righteous kings, distinguished by the liberality of their sacrificial presents, Yayati possessed of daughter's sons, dismissed them and reached the celestial regions.
Mbh.5.123.5461 Narada continued, O monarch, even such was the distress into which Yayati fell in consequence of vanity, and such was the distress into which Galava fell owing to his obstinacy.
Mbh.5.124.5468 SECTION CXXIV Dhritarashtra said, O holy one, it is even so as thou, O Narada, sayest.
Mbh.5.124.5470 Vaisampayana continued, The Kuru king, having said these words unto Narada, then addressed Krishna and said, Thou hast, O Kesava, told me that which leadeth to heaven, what is beneficial to the world, consistent with virtue, and fraught with reason.
Mbh.5.131.5839 And during the uproar that then took place, the Rishis, Narada and others vanquished, for repairing to their respective places.
Mbh.5.161.7095 I will here repeat to thee, O king, this excellent story recited by Narada to my father.
Mbh.5.188.8410 When I had aimed it, Narada addressed me, saying, Yonder, O Kauravya, stay the gods in the sky!
Mbh.5.188.8415 While Narada was telling me this, I beheld those eight utterers of Brahma stationed in the sky.
Mbh.5.188.8416 Smilingly, O king, they said unto me slowly, O chief of the Bharatas, do even what Narada sayeth.
Mbh.5.188.8445 Hearing these words of his, O king, those ascetics with Richika at their head, coming to me with Narada in their company, told me, O sire, desist from battle!
Mbh.5.188.8451 Then all those ascetics with Narada at their head, O king, and my mother Bhagirathi, occupied the field of battle before me.
Mbh.5.189.8490 I then, O king, humbly represented to Narada as also to Vyasa all that the maiden did.
Mbh.5.189.8501 Proceeding next one after another to the asylum, O king, of Narada, and to the auspicious asylum of Uluka and to that of Chyavana, and to the spot sacred to Brahmana, and to Prayaga the sacrificial platform of the gods, and to that forest sacred to the gods, and to Bhogawati, and, O monarch, to the asylum of Kusika's son Viswamitra, and to the asylum of Mandavya, and also to the asylum of Dwilipa, and to Ramhrada, and, O Kaurava, to the asylum of Garga, the princess of Kasi, O king, performed ablutions in the sacred waters of all these, observing all the while the most difficult of vows.
Mbh.5.191.8560 And in due time the wife of Prishata conceived, agreeably to Destiny's decree, as I was informed, O king, by Narada.
Mbh.6.6.340 Tumvuru, and Narada and Viswavasu, and the Hahas and the Huhus, repairing thither, adored the foremost of the celestials with diverse hymns.
Mbh.6.21.979 The Rishi Narada knows it, as also both Bhishma and Drona.
Mbh.6.21.984 Indeed, as Narada said, There is victory where Krishna is,
Mbh.6.23.1052 Dwaipayana and Narada, and Kanwa, and the sinless Rama, had all prevented thy son.
Mbh.6.34.1580 All the Rishis proclaim thee thus, and also the celestial Rishi Narada; and Asita, Devala, and Vyasa; thyself also tellest me so.
Mbh.6.34.1598 I am the figtree among all trees, I am Narada among the celestial Rishis.
Mbh.6.66.3649 And O thou that art well-versed in scriptures, I heard this from Rama, the son of Jamadagni, and Markandeya of great wisdom, and Vyasa and Narada also.
Mbh.6.99.5276 He hath been variously described, O king, by Narada and other great Rishis.
Mbh.6.123.6820 O thou of immeasurable effulgence, even Narada spoke of thee as an ancient Rishi!
Mbh.6.124.6874 O thou of mighty arms, I heard all this about thee from Narada as also from Krishna-Dwaipayana!
Mbh.7.50.2335 Vyasa said, As regards the matter in hand, O king, this ancient story of what Narada had in days of old said unto Akampana is cited.
Mbh.7.50.2352 Informed of his grief on account of the death of his son, the celestial Rishi Narada came to his presence.
Mbh.7.50.2359 Hearing these words of his, the boon giving lord, Narada,
Mbh.7.50.2361 Narada said.
Mbh.7.51.2404 Narada continued, Hearing these words of Mahadeva the divine Brahma, from desire of benefiting creatures, held in his own inner self his wrath that had been roused.
Mbh.7.52.2414 SECTION LII Narada said, The helpless lady, suppressing her arrow within her own self, addressed, with joined hands, the Lord of the creation, bending with humility like a creeper.
Mbh.7.52.2437 Narada continued, Thus addressed, that lady became very much affrighted
Mbh.7.52.2490 Narada continued, That damsel, seeing that she was persistently called by the name of Death, feared to act otherwise.
Mbh.7.52.2513 Vyasa continued, Hearing these words of grave import spoken by Narada, king Akampana, addressing his friend, said, O illustrious one, O foremost of Rishi, my grief is gone, and I am contented.
Mbh.7.53.2533 The Rishis Narada and Parvata were his friends.
Mbh.7.53.2543 Then Narada addressed king Srinjaya and said.
Mbh.7.53.2545 Delighted with the Rishi's proposal, Srinjaya addressed Narada, saying, I give her unto thee'
Mbh.7.53.2546 At this, the other Rishi, viz, Parvata, indignantly addressed Narada, saying, Chosen before this by me, within my heart, thou hast taken this damsel as thy wife.
Mbh.7.53.2548 Thus addressed by him, Narada answered him, saying, The husband's heart and speech directed thereto, the giver's consent, the speeches of both, the actual gift made by sprinkling water, and the recital of the mantras ordained for the seizure of the bride's hand, these have been declared to be indications by which one is constituted a husband.
Mbh.7.53.2557 Together they came to Narada and said unto him, Give this king a son of the kind he desires,
Mbh.7.53.2558 Thus addressed by the Brahmanas, Narada replied unto them, saying, So be it,
Mbh.7.53.2580 Beholding the king afflicted with grief on account of his son, and thus weeping, the celestial Rishi Narada showed himself in his presence.
Mbh.7.53.2581 Listen, O Yudhishthira, to what Narada said unto Srinjaya, having approached that king, who afflicted with grief and deprived of his senses, was indulging in piteous lamentations.
Mbh.7.53.2582 Narada said, Srinjaya, with thy desires unfulfilled, thou shalt have to die, although we utterers of Brahma, live in thy house.
Mbh.7.54.2600 SECTION LVI Narada said, King Suhotra also, O Srinjaya, we hear, fell a prey to death.
Mbh.7.55.2616 SECTION LVII Narada said, The heroic king Paurava also, O Srinjaya, we hear, fell a prey to death.
Mbh.7.56.2625 SECTION LVIII Narada said, Usinara's son, Sivi also, O Srinjaya, we hear, fell a prey to death.
Mbh.7.57.2647 SECTION LIX Narada said, Rama, the son of Dasaratha, O Srinjaya, we hear, fell a prey to death.
Mbh.7.58.2680 SECTION LX Narada said, Even king Bhagiratha, O Srinjaya, we hear, was dead.
Mbh.7.59.2702 SECTION LXI Narada said, Dilipa, the son of Havila, too, O Srinjaya, we hear, fell a prey to death.
Mbh.7.60.2713 SECTION LXII Narada said, Mandhatri' the son of Yuvanaswa, O Srinjaya, we hear, fell a prey to death.
Mbh.7.61.2738 SECTION LXIII Narada said, Yayati, the son of Nahusha, O Srinjaya, we hear, fell a prey to death.

Mbh.7.64.2784 SECTION LXVI Narada said, Gaya, the son of Amartarayas, O Srinjaya, we hear, fell a prey to death, That king, for a hundred years, ate nothing but what remained of the libations of clarified butter poured into the sacrificial fire.
Mbh.7.65.2812 SECTION LXVII Narada said, Rantideva, the son of Srinjaya, we hear, fell a prey to death.

Mbh.7.68.2915 SECTION LXX Narada said, Even the great ascetic Rama, the hero worshipped by all heroes, that son of Jamadagni, of great fame, will die, without being contented with the period of his life.
Mbh.7.69.2940 The illustrious Rishi Narada then said unto him thus sitting silent, O thou of great splendour, hast thou heard those histories recited by me, and hast thou caught their purport?
Mbh.7.69.2945 Narada said, By good luck it is that thy grief hath been dispelled.
Mbh.7.69.2951 Narada said, I will once more give thee thy son who was fruitlessly slain by the robbers, like an animal, slaughtered in sacrifice, taking him out of terrible hell'
Mbh.7.81.3591 Narada described thee as that ancient and best of Rishis called Narayana that giveth boons, that beareth the bow Saranga, and that is the foremost of all.
Mbh.7.96.4467 And the celestial Rishi, Narada, came to have a look at that lake created there in a moment.
Mbh.7.160.8681 For Duryodhana's sake, many such were seen to come from Narada and Parvata in especial, lighting up that darkness.
Mbh.8.2.35 Counsels for thy good had also been uttered in the assembly by Rama and Narada and Kanwa and others.
Mbh.8.96.6125 Then that chief of Kuru's race, that righteous son of Pritha, taking hold of Keshava's right arm adorned with Angadas, and addressing both Keshava and Arjuna, said, Narada told me that ye two are the gods Nara and Narayana, those ancient and best of Rishis, that are ever employed in the preservation of righteousness.
Mbh.9.42.3064 And many of the foremost of celestials and Gandharvas, headed by Narada and many celestial Rishis and Siddhas headed by Brihaspati, and the fathers of the universe, those foremost ones, they that are regarded as gods of the gods, and the Yamas and the Dharmas, all went there.
Mbh.9.48.3593 Then that foremost of ascetics, Narada, addressing the gods, said, There is no ascetic penance in Jaigishavya since he filled Asita with wonder'
Mbh.9.48.3594 The denizens of heaven then, addressing Narada who said such frightful words, said, Do not say so about the great ascetic Jaigishavya!
Mbh.9.50.3686 Beholding her about to cast off her body, Narada said unto her, O sinless one, thou hast no regions of blessedness to obtain in consequence of thy not having cleansed thyself by rite of marriage!
Mbh.9.50.3689 Hearing these words of Narada, the old lady went to a concourse of rishis and said, I shall give him half my penances who will accept my hand in marriage'
Mbh.9.52.3768 There where Rama sat in the midst of that conclave, the adorable Rishi Narada came in course of his wandering.
Mbh.9.52.3773 Conversant with every duty and usage, Narada then, O king, told him everything, as it had happened, about the awful extermination of the Kurus.
Mbh.9.52.3777 Narada said, Already Bhishma and Drona and the lord of the Sindhus have fallen!
Mbh.9.52.3792 Vaishampayana continued, Hearing these words of Narada, Rama bade a respectful farewell to those foremost of Brahmanas and dismissed all those that had accompanied him in his pilgrimage.
Mbh.10.14.916 Then the two great rishis, Narada, who is the soul of every creature, and the grandsire of all the Bharata princes Vyasa, beholding those two weapons scorching the three worlds, showed themselves there.
Mbh.10.16.1006 The Pandavas who had killed and chastised all their foes, placed Govinda and the island-born Krishna and the great ascetic Narada at their head, and taking the gem that was born with Ashvatthama, quickly came back to the intelligent Draupadi who was sitting in observance of the praya vow.
Mbh.11.1.21 I did not follow the counsels of friends of Jamadagnis son, of the celestial rishi Narada, and of island-born Krishna, while they offered me counsel.
Mbh.11.1.42 Thy son, O Bharata, did not obey the words of Bhishma, the reverend chief of the Kurus, of Gandhari and Vidura, of Drona, O king, of Kripa the son of Sharadvata, of the mighty-armed Krishna, of the intelligent Narada, of many other rishis, and of Vyasa himself of immeasurable energy.
Mbh.11.8.339 There were, O sinless one, all the celestial rishis also, headed by Narada.
Mbh.11.8.359 Conversant with truth, Narada, knew all this.
Mbh.11.8.366 Blessed be thou; Narada had truly informed Yudhishthira of all this in his court on the occasion of the rajasuya sacrifice, saying, The Pandavas and the Kauravas, encountering each other, will meet with destruction.
Mbh.11.8.368 Upon these words of Narada, the Pandavas became filled with grief.
