MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.12.1.7 Among them were the Island-born Vyasa, and Narada, and the great Rishi Devala, and Devasthana, and Kanwa.
Mbh.12.1.14 Then Narada, after having accosted the Rishis with the Island-born for their first, in due time, addressed Yudhishthira, the son of Dharma, saying, Through the might of thy arms and the grace of Madhava, the whole Earth, O Yudhishthira, hath been righteously won by thee.
Mbh.12.1.25 This is another topic, O holy Narada, about which I will speak to thee.
Mbh.12.2.68 SECTION II Vaisampayana said, That foremost of speakers, the sage Narada, thus questioned, narrated everything about the manner in which he who was believed to be a Suta's son had been cursed in former days'
Mbh.12.2.69 Narada said, It is even so, O mighty armed one, as thou sayest, O Bharata!
Mbh.12.3.106 SECTION III Narada said, That tiger of Bhrigu's race viz, Rama, was well-pleased with the might of Karna's arms, his affection for him, his self-restraint, and the services he did unto his preceptor.
Mbh.12.4.153 SECTION IV Narada said, Having thus obtained weapons from him of Bhrigu's race, Karna began to pass his days in great joy, in the company of Duryodhana, O bull of Bharata's race!
Mbh.12.5.180 SECTION V Narada said, Hearing of the fame of Karna's might, the ruler of the Magadhas, king Jarasandha, challenged him to a single combat.
Mbh.12.6.193 SECTION VI Vaisampayana said, Having said these words, the celestial Rishi Narada became silent.
Mbh.12.29.1367 In this connection is cited the old discourse of Narada before Srinjaya when the latter was deeply afflicted with grief on account of the death of his son.
Mbh.12.29.1368 Narada said, Subject to happiness and misery, myself, thyself and all creatures, O Srinjaya, shall have to die.
Mbh.12.29.1550 Srinjaya said, I am attending, O Narada, to this discourse of thine, of excellent import and perfumed like a garland of flowers, this discourse upon the conduct of high-souled royal sages of meritorious deeds and great fame, that can certainly dispel grief.
Mbh.12.29.1555 Narada said, I will give back to thee that son of thine, named Suvarnashthivin, whom Parvata gave thee and who has been bereft of life.
Mbh.12.30.1565 There are two Rishis, the foremost ones in the world, named Narada and Parvata.
Mbh.12.30.1566 Narada is the maternal uncle and Parvata is his sister's son.
Mbh.12.30.1567 With cheerful hearts, the uncle Narada and the nephew Parvata had, in days of old, O king, left heaven for a pleasant ramble on earth for tasting clarified butter and rice.
Mbh.12.30.1577 Her dutiful services and her unrivalled beauty very soon inspired Narada with a tender flame towards her.
Mbh.12.30.1579 The virtuous Narada, however, overwhelmed by shame, could not disclose that burning attachment to his sister's son, the high-souled Parvata.
Mbh.12.30.1581 Inflamed with rage, the latter thereupon resolved to curse the love-afflicted Narada.
Mbh.12.30.1596 Hearing these words of his, the uncle Narada, filled with wrath, cursed his nephew Parvata in return, saying, Although thou hast ascetic merit and Brahmacharya and truth and self-restraint, and although thou art ever devoted to virtue, thou shalt not yet succeed in proceeding to heaven'
Mbh.12.30.1599 Narada then, that foremost of Brahmanas, obtained according to due rites the hand of Srinjaya's daughter, the faultless Sukumari.
Mbh.12.30.1600 The princess, however, beheld Narada exactly as the curse had said.
Mbh.12.30.1605 One day, as the illustrious Parvata, in course of his wanderings, entered a solitary forest, he beheld Narada there.
Mbh.12.30.1607 Seeing the cheerless Parvata kneeling before him with joined hands, Narada, himself mere cheerless, said unto him, Thou hadst cursed me first, saying, Be thou an ape'
Mbh.12.30.1614 This one is the illustrious and puissant Rishi Narada, that foremost of virtuous persons.
Mbh.12.30.1618 Then Parvata proceeded to heaven and Narada to his home
Mbh.12.30.1619 Vasudeva continued, The illustrious Rishi Narada, who was himself an actor in this matter, is here.
Mbh.12.31.1621 SECTION XXXI Vaisampayana said, The royal son of Pandu then addressed Narada, saying, O holy one, I desire to hear of the birth of the child whose excreta were gold'
Mbh.12.31.1622 Thus addressed by king Yudhishthira the just, the sage Narada began to narrate to him all that had occurred in connection with that child of golden excreta.
Mbh.12.31.1623 Narada said, It is even so, O thou of mighty arms, as Kesava here hath said.
Mbh.12.37.1974 Vaisampayana continued, Then Vyasa, O monarch, that foremost of all persons conversant with the Vedas, casting his eyes upon that ancient and all-knowing person, viz, Narada, said, If, O king, thou wishest to hear of duties and morality in full, then ask Bhishma, O mighty-armed one, that old grandsire of the Kurus.
Mbh.12.47.2294 Surrounded by Vyasa conversant with the Vedas by the celestial Rishi Narada, by Devasthana, by Asmaka Sumantu, by Jaimini, by the high-souled Paila, by Sandilya, by Devarata, by Maitreya of great intelligence, by Asita and Vasishtha and the high-souled Kausika, by Harita and Lomasa and Atri's son of great intelligence, by Vrihaspati and Sukra and the great sage Chyavana, by Sanatkumara and Kapila and Valmiki and Tumvuru and Kuru, by Maudgalya and Rama of Bhrigu's race, and the great sage Trinavindu, by Pippalada and Vayu and Samvarta and Pulaha and Katha, by Kasyapa and Pulastya and Kratu and Daksha and Parasara, by Marichi and Angiras and Kasmya and Gautama and the sage Galava, by Dhaumya and Vibhanda and Mandavya and Dhaumra and Krishnanubhautika, by Uluka, that foremost of Brahmanas and the great sage Markandeya, by Bhaskari and Purana and Krishna and Suta, that foremost of virtuous persons, surrounded by these and many other highly-blessed sages of great souls and possessed of faith and self-restraint and tranquillity of mind, the Kuru hero looked like the Moon in the midst of the planets and the stars.
Mbh.12.53.2834 Vaisampayana said, When Bhishma that chief of the Kurus, lay on his bed of arrows, many Rishis and Siddhas, O king, headed by Narada, came to that spot.
Mbh.12.53.2837 Then Narada of godlike features reflecting for a short while, addressed all the Pandavas and the unslain remnant of the kings saying, The time, I think, has come for you to question Bhishma on subject of morality and religion, for Ganga's son is about to expire like the Sun that is on the point of setting.
Mbh.12.53.2843 Thus addressed by Narada, those princes approached Bhishma, but unable to ask him anything, looked at one another.
Mbh.12.80.4498 Bhishma said, In this connection is cited the old history of a discourse between Vasudeva and the celestial sage Narada.
Mbh.12.80.4499 On a certain occasion Vasudeva said, Neither an illiterate and foolish friend, nor a learned friend of fickle soul, deserves, O Narada, to know one's secret counsels.
Mbh.12.80.4507 Although I have all these on my side yet I am helpless, O Narada!
Mbh.12.80.4515 I am thus, O Narada, afflicted by both.
Mbh.12.80.4517 Narada said, Calamities, O Krishna, are of two kinds, viz, external and internal.
Mbh.12.80.4531 Narada said, The giving of food to the best of thy power, forgiveness, sincerity, mildness, and honour to whom honour is due, these constitute a weapon that is not made of steel.
Mbh.12.123.7022 It was formerly recited by Narada on the subject of virtuous behaviour.
Mbh.12.153.9259 One day, the sage Narada, O bull of Bharata's race, seeing the wide-extending and innumerable branches of that tree and the circumference of his trunk, approached and addressed him, saying, O thou art delightful!
Mbh.12.154.9276 SECTION CLV Narada said, Without doubt, O Salmali, the terrible and irresistible god of the wind always protects thee from friendliness or amity.
Mbh.12.154.9283 My fierce energy and might, O Narada, are greater than the Wind's.
Mbh.12.154.9288 Narada said, O Salmali, thy protection seems to be thoroughly perverse.
Mbh.12.155.9308 that foremost of all persons conversant with Brahma, viz, Narada, represented unto the god of the wind all that the Salmali had said about him'
Mbh.12.155.9309 Narada said, There is a certain Salmali on the breast of Himavat, adorned with branches and leaves.
Mbh.12.155.9316 Bhishma continued, Hearing these words of Narada, the god of wind, wending to that Salmali, addressed him in rage and said as follows'
Mbh.12.155.9317 The Wind-god said, O Salmali, thou hast spoken in derogation of me before Narada.
Mbh.12.155.9338 The Salmali, concluding mentally what the extent is of the Wind's might and beholding his own self to be inferior to the god, began to say to himself, All that I said to Narada is false.
Mbh.12.155.9341 The Wind, as Narada said, is always mighty.
Mbh.12.156.9357 Remembering also the words that Narada had said, he began to repent greatly for his folly.
Mbh.12.165.9828 That religion was accepted by the gods, with their preceptors, priests, the Adityas, the Vasus, the Rudras, the Sadhyas, the Maruts, the Aswins, Bhrigu, Atri, Angiras, the Siddhas, Kasyapa rich in penances, Vasishtha, Gautama, Agastya, Narada, Parvata, the Valikhilya Rishis, those other Rishis known under the names of Prabhasas, the Sikatas, the Ghritapas, the Somavayavyas, the Vaiswanaras, Marichipas, the Akrishtas, the Hansas, those born of Fire, the Vanaprasthas, and the Prasnis.
Mbh.12.172.10316 All this, O Bharata, was recited to me formerly by Narada.
Mbh.12.192.11491 The celestial Rishi Narada said that these are indications of good conduct.
Mbh.12.199.12102 The Sadhyas, the Viswas, the Mantras, diverse kinds of loud and sweet music, the Rivers, the Mountains, the Seas, the Sacred Waters, the Penances, the Ordinances about yoga, the Vedas, the Sounds that accompany the singing of the Samans, Saraswati, Narada, Parvata, Viswavasu, the Hahas, the Huhus, the Gandharva Chitrasena with all the members of his family, the Nagas, the Sadhyas, the Munis, the god of gods, viz, Prajapati, and the inconceivable and thousand-headed Vishnu himself, came there.
Mbh.12.206.12466 Bhishma said, I have heard of this subject from Jamadagni's son Rama, while he discoursed on it, from the celestial Rishi Narada, and from Krishna-Dwaipayana.
Mbh.12.206.12537 That observer of all the worlds, viz, the celestial Rishi Narada, has said that Krishna is the Supreme God
Mbh.12.206.12538 Even Narada, O king, admits the supremacy of Krishna and his eternity, O mighty-armed chief of Bharata's race
Mbh.12.209.12697 The science of music was acquired by Narada; that of arms by Bharadwaja; the history of the celestial Rishis by Gargya: that of medicine by the dark-complexioned son of Atri.
Mbh.12.227.13993 The great ascetic Narada, of energy whose effulgence is as immeasurable as Brahma itself, with sins all destroyed, capable of beholding through the prosperity of his penances both this and the other world at once, and the equal of the celestial Rishis in the region of the Creator, roved according to his pleasure through the triple world.
Mbh.12.227.13995 At that time the thousand-eyed Indra also, the wielder of the thunderbolt, and the slayer of Samvara and Paka, came to the very bank where Narada was.
Mbh.12.227.14008 Descending from her foremost of cars, that unrivalled lady began to approach towards the lord of the three worlds and the celestial Rishi Narada.
Mbh.12.227.14009 Followed by Narada, Maghavat also proceeded towards that lady.
Mbh.12.227.14127 After the goddess had said so, the celestial Rishi Narada, and Vasava, the slayer of Vritra, for gladdening her, offered her a joyful welcome.
Mbh.12.227.14131 Then the great Rishi Narada, whose prowess was known to all the celestials, observing a sign that the wielder of the thunderbolt made and which Sree herself approved of, welcomed the advent of the goddess there and proclaimed it as exceedingly auspicious.
Mbh.12.229.14187 Ugrasena said, All persons seem to be very solicitous of speaking of the merits of Narada.
Mbh.12.229.14190 Vasudeva said, O chief of the Kukkuras, listen to me as I mention in brief those good qualities of Narada with which I am acquainted, O king!
Mbh.12.229.14191 Narada is as learned in the scriptures as he is good and pious in his conduct.
Mbh.12.229.14194 Discontent, wrath, levity, and fear, these do not exist in Narada.
Mbh.12.229.14197 Narada deserves the respectful worship of all.
Mbh.12.243.15020 Agastya, the seven Rishis viz, Atri, Angiras, Pulastya, Pulaha, Vasishtha, Narada, and Kratu, Madhucchandas, Aghamarshana, Sankriti Sudivatandi who lived withersoever he pleased and was content to take what came without ever seeking for anything
Mbh.12.255.15487 One day, while wandering without a purpose he met the sage Narada on the earth.
Mbh.12.255.15488 The monarch told Narada all that had happened, viz, the death of his son in battle and his own capture by his enemies.
Mbh.12.255.15489 Having heard his words, Narada, possessed of wealth of penances, then recited to him the following narrative for dispelling his grief on account of the death of his son'
Mbh.12.255.15490 Narada said, Listen now, O monarch, to the following narrative of rather lengthy details as these had occurred.
Mbh.12.256.15530 Narada continued, Hearing these words of Sthanu, the divine Brahman of restrained speech and mind himself suppressed that energy of his within his own heart.
Mbh.12.257.15543 SECTION CCLVIII Narada said, The large-eyed lady, controlling her grief by an effort of her own, addressed the Grandsire, with joined hands and bending in an attribute of humility like a creeper.
Mbh.12.271.16690 Bhishma said, In this connection I shall relate to thee the history, formerly recited by Narada, of a Brahmana who for performing sacrifices, lived according to the unchha mode'
Mbh.12.271.16691 Narada said, In one of the foremost of kingdoms that was distinguished again for virtue, there lived a Brahmana.
Mbh.12.274.16798 SECTION CCLXXV Bhishma said, In this connection is cited the old narrative of the discourse that took place between Narada and Asita-Devala.
Mbh.12.274.16799 Once on a time Narada, beholding that foremost of intelligent men, viz, Devala of venerable years, seated at his ease, questioned him about the origin and the destruction of all creatures'
Mbh.12.274.16800 Narada said, Whence, O Brahmana, hath this universe, consisting of mobile and immobile objects, been created?
Mbh.12.274.16806 Know, O Narada, that these five are eternal, indestructible, and without beginning and without end.
Mbh.12.282.17387 And the great sage Usanas, and the foremost of Rishis having Sanatkumara for their first, and the other celestial Rishis headed by Angiras, and the Gandharva Viswavasu, and Narada and Parvata, and the diverse tribes of Apsaras, all came there to wait upon the Master of the universe.
Mbh.12.283.17462 The gods, the Danavas, the Gandharvas, the Pisachas, the Snakes, the Rakshasas, the two Gandharvas named Haha and Huhu, Tumvuru and Narada, Viswavasu, Viswasena, the Gandharvas and the Apsaras, the Adityas, the Vasus, the Rudras, the Sadhyas, the Maruts, all came there with Indra for sharing in the Sacrifice.
Mbh.12.283.17473 He beheld Mahadeva, and his divine spouse, viz, that giver of excellent boons seated on the summit of Kailasa with the highsouled Narada sitting beside the goddess.
Mbh.12.286.17957 Bhishma said, In this connection, O Bharata, is cited the old narrative of the discourse between Narada and Samanga'
Mbh.12.286.17958 Narada said, While others salute their superiors by only a bend of the head thou salutest thy superiors by prostrating thyself on the ground till thy chest comes into contact with the ground.
Mbh.12.286.17967 Behold, the illiterate, the destitute, the prosperous, O Narada, the blind, idiots and madmen, and ourselves also, all live
Mbh.12.286.17976 When we, O Narada, do not give way to grief, what can the practice of the duties of religion or the observance of religious acts do to us?
Mbh.12.286.18000 It is for this reason, O Narada, that grief, even when it comes to me, does not succeed in afflicting me
Mbh.12.287.18003 In this connection also is cited the old narrative of the discourse between Galava and the celestial Rishi Narada.
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.12.287.18016 Narada said, The Asramas are four in number, O child!
Mbh.12.292.18304 Then, again, Asita and Devala, and Narada and Parvata, and Karkshivat, and Jamadagni's son Rama, and Tandya possessed of cleansed soul, and Vasishtha, and Jamadagni, and Viswamitra and Atri, and Bharadwaja, and Harismasru, and Kundadhara, and Srutasravas, these great Rishis, by adoring Vishnu with concentrated minds with the aid of Richs, and by penances, succeeded in attaining to success through the grace of that great deity endued with intelligence.
Mbh.12.308.19454 From that foremost of Rishis, viz, Vasishtha, it was acquired by Narada.
Mbh.12.308.19455 From Narada I have acquired that knowledge which is truly identifiable with the eternal Brahma.
Mbh.12.318.19884 I have heard discourses on this subject from Jaigishavya, Aista, Devala, the regenerate sage Parasara, the intelligent Varshaganya, Bhrigu, Panchasikha Kapila, Suka, Gautama, Arshtisena, the high-souled Garga, Narada, Asuri, the intelligent Paulastya, Sanatkumara, the high-souled Sukra, and my sire Kasyapa.
Mbh.12.323.20596 Thither all the regenerate Rishis and royal sages and the Regents of the world and the Sadhyas along with the Vasus, and the Adityas, the Rudras, and Surya and Chandramas, and the Maruts, and the Oceans, and the Rivers and the Aswins, the Deities, the Gandharvas, and Narada and Parvata and the Gandharva Viswavasu, and the Siddhas, and the Apsaras.
Mbh.12.328.20871 At that time Narada of great ascetic merit came to that spot for seeing Vyasa, and addressing him, said these words of melodious sound.
Mbh.12.328.20872 Narada said, O regenerate Rishi of Vasishtha's race, why are Vedic sounds silent now?
Mbh.12.328.20877 Hearing these words of Narada, the Island-born Krishna answered, saying, O great Rishi, O thou art conversant with the declarations of the Vedas, all that thou hast said is agreeable to me and it truly behoves thee to say it unto me!
Mbh.12.328.20885 Narada said, The stain of the Vedas is the suspension of their recitation.
Mbh.12.328.20889 Do thou with thy intelligent son recite the Vedas, and do thou with the echoes of Vedic sounds dispel the fears arising from Rakshasas: Bhishma continued, Hearing these words of Narada, Vyasa, the foremost of all persons conversant with duties and firmly devoted to Vedic recitation, became filled with joy and answered Narada, saying, So be it, With his son Suka, he set himself to recite the Vedas in a loud sonorous voice, observing all the rules of orthoepy and, as it were, filling the three worlds with that sound.
Mbh.12.329.20949 SECTION CCCXXX Bhishma said, After Vyasa had left the spot, Narada, traversing through the sky, came to Suka employed in studying the scriptures.
Mbh.12.329.20951 Beholding the celestial Rishi Narada arrived at his retreat, Suka worshipped him by offering him the Arghya according to the rites laid down in the Vedas.
Mbh.12.329.20952 Pleased with the honours bestowed upon him, Narada addressed Suka, saying, Tell me, O foremost of righteous persons, by what means, O dear child, may I accomplish what is for thy highest good,
Mbh.12.329.20953 Hearing these words of Narada, Suka, said unto him, O Bharata, these words, It behoveth thee to instruct me in respect of that which may be beneficial to me: Narada said, In days of yore the illustrious Sanatkumara had said these words unto certain Rishis of cleansed souls that had repaired to him for enquiring after the truth.
Mbh.12.330.21059 SECTION CCCXXXI Narada said, By listening to such scriptures as are blessed, as bring about tranquillity, as dispel grief, and as are productive of happiness, one attains to a pure understanding, and having attained to it obtains to high felicity.
Mbh.12.331.21121 SECTION CCCXXXII Narada said, When the vicissitudes of happiness and sorrow appear or disappear, the transitions are incapable of being prevented by either wisdom or policy or exertion.
Mbh.12.331.21191 Hearing these words of Narada Suka, endued with great intelligence and possessed of tranquillity of mind, reflected upon the drift of the instructions he received, but could not arrive at any certainty of conclusion.
Mbh.12.331.21214 Having said these words, Suka, informed Narada of world wide celebrity of his intention.
Mbh.12.332.21229 He then circumambulated the celestial Rishi Narada, and represented unto that foremost of Rishis the fact of his having addressed himself to the highest Yoga.
Mbh.12.332.21233 Bhishma said, Having received the permission of Narada, Suka the son of the Island-born Vyasa saluted the celestial Rishi and once more set himself to Yoga and entered the element of space.
Mbh.12.333.21326 The celestial Rishi Narada and the great Yogin Vyasa had repeatedly told all this to me in days of yore when the subject was suggested to him in course of conversation.
Mbh.12.334.21342 In this connection is cited the old history of the discourse between Narada and the Rishi Narayana.
Mbh.12.334.21349 Without doubt, with his heart devoted to them, and impelled by a longing desire to be-hold them, Narada dropped down on Gandhamadana from a summit of the high mountains of Meru and wandered over all the world.
Mbh.12.334.21364 Thinking of this in his mind, and filled with devotion towards Narayana, Narada suddenly appeared before those two gods.
Mbh.12.334.21367 Beholding that extraordinary conduct of the two original deities in themselves worshipping other deities and Pitris, the illustrious Rishi Narada took his seat there, well pleased with the honours he had received.
Mbh.12.334.21369 Narada said, In the Vedas and the Puranas, in the Angas and the subsidiary Angas thou art sung with reverence, thou art unborn and eternal.
Mbh.12.334.21406 I have now, O Narada, discoursed to thee on what is high mystery moved by the love I bear to thee for thy devotion to me.
Mbh.12.335.21408 SECTION CCCXXXVI Bhishma said, Addressed by Narayana, that foremost of beings, in these words, Narada, the foremost of men, then said these words unto Narayana for the good of the world.
Mbh.12.335.21409 Narada said, Let that object be accomplished for which thou, O self-born Being, hast taken birth in four forms in the house of Dharma!
Mbh.12.335.21420 Hearing these words of Parameshthi's son, Narayana, that protector of the scriptures, dismissed him, saying, Go, O Narada,
Mbh.12.335.21422 Narada also gave due honours to the ancient Rishi Narayana.
Mbh.12.335.21424 Endued with high Yoga-puissance, Narada suddenly soared into the firmament and reached the summit of the mountains of Meru.
Mbh.12.337.21690 Listen to me with undivided attention, for I shall now narrate to thee how the celestial Rishi Narada proceeded in days of yore to White Island
Mbh.12.338.21694 Narada said, Salutations to thee, O God of gods, O thou that art freed from all acts!
Mbh.12.339.21782 SECTION CCCXL Bhishma said, Thus hymned with names that were not known to others, the Divine Narayana having the universe for his form showed himself to the ascetic Narada.
Mbh.12.339.21792 Bearing these diverse kinds of hues on his person, the eternal Deity appeared before Narada.
Mbh.12.339.21800 With cheerful soul, that foremost of regenerate persons, viz, Narada of restraining speech, bowed unto the great God and adored Him.
Mbh.12.339.21811 Narada said, Since, O holy one, I have today succeeded in obtaining a sight of thee.
Mbh.12.339.21818 Bhishma continued, Having thus shown Himself unto Narada, the son of Parameshthi, the great God addressed that ascetic and said, Go hence, O Narada, and do not delay!
Mbh.12.339.21829 Behold, O Narada, the greatness and puissance of God.
Mbh.12.339.21862 It is from me, O Narada, that the indestructible and destructible, the existent and the non-existent, flow.
Mbh.12.339.21868 This, O Narada, thou wilt fail to understand.
Mbh.12.339.21872 That which thou beholdest of me, O Narada, is only an illusion of mine.
Mbh.12.339.21876 I am, O Narada, the Doer, I am Cause, and I am Effect.
Mbh.12.339.21893 Behold, O Narada, Dhruva, that foremost of luminaries ranging the firmament, as also all the Oceans those receptacles of water, and lakes, and rivers, dwelling in me.
Mbh.12.339.21932 I shall taking the sovereignty of the three worlds Vali restore it to Indra of immeasurable splendour, and replace the deities, O Narada, in their respective stations.
Mbh.12.339.21961 Brahman the Creator himself never obtained a sight of me in this form of mine, which thou, O Narada, hast seen today in consequence of thy entire devotion to me.
Mbh.12.339.21963 Bhishma continued, The holy and illustrious deity, of universal and immutable form, having said these words unto Narada, disappeared there and then.
Mbh.12.339.21964 Narada also, endued with great energy, having obtained the high favour that he had solicited, then proceeded with great speed to the retreat called Vadari, for beholding Nara and Narayana.
Mbh.12.339.21965 This great Upanishad, perfectly consist with the four Vedas, in harmony with Sankhya-yoga, and called by him by the name of the Pancharatra scriptures, and recited by Narayana himself with his own mouth, was repeated by Narada in the presence of many hearers in the abode of Brahman his sire in exactly the same way in which Narayana while that great god had showed himself unto him had recited it, and in which he had heard it from his own lips.
Mbh.12.339.21966 Yudhishthira said, Was not Brahman, the Creator of all things, acquainted with this wonderful narrative of the glory of Narayana endued with intelligence that he heard it from the lips of Narada?
Mbh.12.339.21973 It was only unto that conclave of Rishis, crowned with ascetic success, that came to the abode of Brahman, that Narada recited his narrative which is a very ancient one, and which is perfectly consistent with the Vedas.
Mbh.12.339.21998 Bhishma continued, have now repeated to thee the narrative that was recited by Narada unto the conclave of Rishis assembled in the abode of Brahman.
Mbh.12.343.22732 That Narada was able to obtain a sight of the God Narayana, otherwise called Hari, was due, O son of Suta, to the special grace of that divine and puissant Lord.
Mbh.12.343.22733 When, however, the celestial Rishi Narada had succeeded in obtaining a sight of the Supreme Lord of the universe, a residing in the form of Aniruddha, why did he again proceed so quickly to the retreat of Vadari on the breast of Himavat for beholding those two foremost of godly of Rishis viz, Nara and Narayana?
Mbh.12.343.22734 Do you, O Sauti, tell us the reason of such conduct on the part of Narada
Mbh.12.343.22737 Janamejaya said, After the celestial Rishi Narada had returned from White Island, reflecting, as he came, on the words spoken to him by the holy Narayana, what indeed, did the great ascetic next do?
Mbh.12.343.22738 Arrived at the retreat known by the name of Vadari on the breast of the Himvat mountains, and seeing the two Rishis Nara and Narayana who were engaged in severe austerities at that spot, how long did Narada dwell there and what were the topics of conversation between him and the two Rishis?
Mbh.12.343.22752 More fortunate than my ancestors was the celestial Rishi Narada, the son of Pramesthi.
Mbh.12.343.22753 Indeed, I thank that Narada, who transcends all destruction, was endued with an energy that was not little, for repairing to White-Island he had succeeded in beholding the person of Hari.
Mbh.12.343.22755 Fortunate was Narada inasmuch as he had succeeded in beholding Narayana as existing in the form of Aniruddha.
Mbh.12.343.22756 Having beheld Narayana in that form, why did Narada hasten once more to the retreat of Vadari for the purpose of beholding Nara and Narayana?
Mbh.12.343.22757 What was the reason, O ascetic, of this step taken by Narada?
Mbh.12.343.22758 How long also did Narada the son of Pramesthi, after his return from White Island and arrival at Vadari and meeting with the two Rishis Nara and Narayana, live there, and what conversations had he with them?
Mbh.12.343.22763 Arrived at White Island, Narada beheld the immutable Hari.
Mbh.12.343.22783 Beholding them, Narada became filled with joy.
Mbh.12.343.22786 Beholding those two foremost of Beings, Narada began to reflect within himself, These two foremost of Rishis seem to be very like, in appearance, unto those Rishis respected by all, whom I have seen in White-island.
Mbh.12.343.22789 They then, with controlled hearts, worshipped Narada with water to wash his feet and the usual ingredients of the Arghya.
Mbh.12.343.22792 Then Narayana, seeing Narada refreshed from fatigue and seated at his ease and well-pleased with the rites of hospitality he had received, addressed him, saying these words.
Mbh.12.343.22794 Narada said, I have seen that beautiful Being who is immutable and who has the universe for his form.
Mbh.12.344.22833 These words that we say unto thee are very true, O Narada.
Mbh.12.344.22869 Vaisampayana continued, Having heard these words of Nara and Narayana both of whom were engaged in the practice of the austerest penances, the celestial Rishi Narada joined his hands in reverence and became entirely devoted to Narayana.
Mbh.12.344.22871 Worshipping the Supreme Deity Narayana, and adoring those two ancient Rishis also that had taken birth in the house of Dharma, the illustrious Rishi Narada, endued with great energy, continued to reside, thus employed, in that retreat, called Vadari, on the breast of Himavat, belonging to Nara and Narayana, for a thousand years as measured by the standard of the celestials
Mbh.12.345.22872 SECTION CCCXLVI Vaisampayana said, On one occasion, while residing in the retreat of Nara and Narayana, Narada the son of Pramesthi, having duly accomplished the rites and observances in honour of the deities, set himself to perform thereafter the rites in honour of the Pitris.
Mbh.12.345.22877 Narada said, Thou saidst unto me on a former occasion that rites and observances in honour of the deities should be accomplished.
Mbh.12.345.22895 When the sun reached the meridian, and the hour, therefore, came for saying the morning prayers, the puissant Lord, suddenly shaking off three balls of mud from his tusk, placed them upon the Earth, O Narada, having previously spread thereon certain blades of grass.
Mbh.12.346.22922 SECTION CCCXLVII Vaisampayana said, Having heard these words of Nara and Narayana, the Rishi Narada became filled with devotion towards the Supreme Being.
Mbh.12.346.22934 This cult, with its mysteries and its abstract of details, was obtained by Narada, O king, from that Lord of the universe, viz, Narayana himself.
Mbh.12.346.22945 Formerly Narada had recited it to my preceptor in the hearing of many Rishis and the sons of Pandu and in the presence of Krishna and Bhishma also
Mbh.12.348.23202 This very topic was raised by the highly blessed Partha to Narada for the latter's discourse in the midst of the Rishis and in the presence of Krishna and Bhishma.
Mbh.12.348.23203 My preceptor, viz, the Island-born Krishna heard what Narada said.
Mbh.12.348.23205 I shall now recite it to thee, O monarch, in the same way as it has been received from Narada.
Mbh.12.348.23269 The celestial Rishi Narada got it from that Lord of universe, viz, Narayana himself, O king, with all its mysteries and abstract of details.
Mbh.12.348.23291 He had obtained it from the celestial Rishi Narada endued with wealth of penances.
Mbh.12.348.23321 Even thus did the highly-blessed Narada explain to my preceptor, the Island-born Krishna, the eternal and immutable course, called Ekanta, ending in One followed by the Whites as also by the yellow-robed Yatis.
Mbh.12.352.23567 This particular topic, however, on which thou wishest me to discourse was in days of yore the subject of conversation between the celestial Rishi Narada and the chief of the deities, viz, Indra.
Mbh.12.352.23568 The great Rishi Narada, O king, revered by all the world is a siddha ie, his sadhana has met fulfilment.
Mbh.12.352.23576 Thus questioned, Narada, that foremost of speakers, O king, then commented to recite unto the chief of the celestials the extensive history that follows.
Mbh.12.352.23577 Listen now to me as I recite that story which Narada told before Indra.
Mbh.12.363.23890 King Janaka, in his turn, narrated it to the celestial Rishi Narada of high soul.
Mbh.12.363.23891 The celestial Rishi Narada too, of stainless acts, repairing on one occasion to the abode of Indra, the chief of the deities, gave to Indra this history upon being asked by him.
Mbh.12.363.23892 The chief of the celestials, having obtained it thus from Narada, recited this blessed history to a conclave consisting of all the foremost Brahmanas, O monarch.
Mbh.13.4.331 The adorable Madhuchcchanda and the mighty Devrat, Akshina, Sakunta, Vabhru, Kalapatha, the celebrated Yajnavalkya, Sthula of high vows, Uluka, Mudgala, and the sage Saindhavayana, the illustrious Valgujangha and the great Rishi Galeva, Ruchi, the celebrated Vajra, as also Salankayana, Liladhya and Narada, the one known as Kurchamuka, and Vahuli, Mushala, as also Vakshogriva, Anghrika, Naikadrik, Silayupa, Sita, Suchi, Chakraka, Marrutantavya, Vataghna, Aswalayana, and Syamayana, Gargya, and Javali, as also Susruta, Karishi, Sangsrutya, and Para Paurava, and Tantu, the great sage Kapila, Tarakayana, Upagahana, Asurayani, Margama, Hiranyksha, Janghari, Bhavravayani, and Suti, Bibhuti, Suta, Surakrit, Arani, Nachika, Champeya, Ujjayana, Navatantu, Vakanakha, Sayanya, Yati, Ambhoruha, Amatsyasin, Srishin, Gardhavi Urjjayoni, Rudapekahin, and the great Rishi Naradin, these Munis were all sons of Viswamitra and were versed in the knowledge of Brahma.
Mbh.13.14.1014 Narada also, in days of yore, adored the great Bhava with devotion of heart.
Mbh.13.17.2667 Thou art of the form of the celestial Rishis like Narada and others.
Mbh.13.26.3512 There were Sthulaksha and Savalaksha and Kanwa and Medhatithi and Krisa and Narada and Parvata and Sudhanwa and Ekata and Dwita.
Mbh.13.31.3916 Bhishma said, In this connection is cited the old narrative of the discourse between Narada and Vasudeva.
Mbh.13.31.3917 Beholding Narada on one occasion worshipping many foremost of Brahmanas with joined hands, Kesava addressed him saying, Whom dost thou worship?
Mbh.13.31.3921 Narada said, Hear, O Govinda, as to who those are whom I am worshipping, O grinder of foes.
Mbh.13.33.4054 Some amongst them are fond of fomenting quarrels and disputes like Narada.
Mbh.13.34.4086 This was said unto me by Narada.
Mbh.13.34.4130 Even this is what Narada said unto me, viz, that one should always revere a Brahmana that is well-born, of rigid vows and conversant with the scriptures, if one desires every kind of prosperity.
Mbh.13.38.4252 Bhishma said, In this connection is cited the old history of the discourse between the celestial Rishi Narada and the celestial courtezan Panchachuda.
Mbh.13.38.4253 Once in ancient times, the celestial Rishi Narada, having roamed over all the world, met the Apsara Panchachuda of faultless beauty, having her abode in the region of Brahman.
Mbh.13.38.4257 Narada said, O amiable one, I shall not certainly appoint thee to any task that is beyond thy competence.
Mbh.13.38.4268 This fault truly stains them, O Narada!
Mbh.13.38.4271 That is, certainly known to thee, O Narada!
Mbh.13.38.4300 At that time, again, O Narada, when women were created, these faults that I have enumerated were planted in them
Mbh.13.63.6091 Bhishma said, These very questions were on a former occasion put by me to Narada of celestial appearance.
Mbh.13.63.6093 Narada said, The deities and all the Rishis applaud food.
Mbh.13.63.6166 Bhishma continued, Thus addressed by Narada, O king, I have always made gifts of food.
Mbh.13.64.6186 Bhishma said, In this connection is recited this ancient narrative of the discourse between Devaki and Narada, that foremost of Rishis.
Mbh.13.64.6187 Once on a time when Narada of godlike feature and conversant with every duty arrived at Dwaraka, Devaki asked him this question.
Mbh.13.64.6188 Unto her that had asked him, the celestial Rishi Narada duly answered in the following words.
Mbh.13.64.6190 Narada said, By gratifying, O blessed lady, deserving Brahmanas with Payasa mixed with ghee, under the constellation Krittika one attains to regions of great happiness
Mbh.13.64.6224 Bhishma continued, Even thus did Narada discourse unto Devaki upon the subject of what gifts should be made under what constellations.
Mbh.13.83.7387 There were Narada and Parvata and Viswavasu and Haha-Huhu, who sang in celestial strains for adoring that puissant lord of all creatures.
Mbh.13.94.8550 There were Sakra and Angiras and Kavi of great learning and Agastya and Narada and Pravata; and Bhrigu and Vasishtha and Kasyapa and Gautama and Viswamitra and Jamadagni, O king!
Mbh.13.94.8607 Narada said, Let him who has stolen thy stalks be one that identifies the body with the soul!
Mbh.13.98.8895 That discourse was next recited by Manu unto the Rishi Suvarna, Suvarna, in his turn, recited it to Narada.
Mbh.13.98.8896 The celestial Rishi Narada recited unto me the merits that attach to the several acts mentioned.
Mbh.13.102.9102 Gautama said, If thou proceedest to the woods owned by Narada and held dear by him, that are adorned with flowers and that echo with the melodious songs of the prince of Kinnaras, and that are the eternal abode of Gandharvas and Apsaras, I shall follow thee thither and force thee to yield up this elephant to me'
Mbh.13.115.10269 The righteous-souled Narada has said that that man who wishes to increase his own flesh by eating the flesh of other creatures, meets with calamity.
Mbh.13.126.11024 The deities with Narada among them adored thee on that occasion by calling thee Sarvamsaha.
Mbh.13.139.11418 For beholding him who had gone through the rite of initiation for the observance of his great vow, there came to that place Narada and Parvata, and the Island-born Krishna, and Dhaumya, that foremost of silent reciters, and Devala, and Kasyapa, and Hastikasyapa.
Mbh.13.139.11468 All those ascetics then appointed Narada, that foremost of all persons conversant with speech, to gratify the request of Vasudeva'
Mbh.13.139.11469 The ascetics said, It behoveth thee, O Narada, to describe, in full, from the beginning, unto Hrishikesa, that wonderful and inconceivable incident which occurred, O puissant one, on the mountains of Himavat and which, O ascetic, was witnessed by those of us that had proceeded thither in course of our pilgrimage to the sacred waters.
Mbh.13.139.11471 Thus addressed by those ascetics, the celestial Rishi, viz, the divine Narada, then recited the following story whose incidents had occurred some time before
Mbh.13.140.11472 SECTION CXL Bhishma said, Then Narada, that holy Rishi, that friend of Narayana, recited the following narrative of the discourse between Sankara and his spouse Uma'
Mbh.13.140.11473 Narada said, Once on a time the righteous-souled lord of all the deities, viz, Mahadeva with the bull for his device, practised severe penances on the sacred mountains of Himavat that are the resort of Siddhas and Charanas.
Mbh.13.140.11563 Narada continued, Thus addressed by the daughter of the prince of mountains, the illustrious wielder of Pinaka, the puissant Mahadeva, became highly gratified with her.
Mbh.13.141.11606 Narada continued, When the daughter of Himavat put this question, conclave of Rishis there present worshipped the goddess and adored her with words adorned with Riks and with hymns fraught with deep import'
Mbh.13.146.12152 SECTION CXLVI Narada said, Having said these words, the puissant Mahadeva himself became desirous of hearing instead of talking, and with that view he questioned his dear spouse who was seated by his side and she was fully inclined to act up to his desire'
Mbh.13.146.12236 I have thus, O god, expounded, at thy command, what the duties of women are, Verily, that woman who conducts herself in this way becomes entitled to a share of the merits won by her husband' Narada continued, Thus addressed, the great god applauded the daughter of the prince of mountains and then dismissed all persons that had assembled there, together with all his own attendants.
Mbh.13.148.12372 SECTION CXLVIII Narada said, At the conclusion of Mahadeva's speech, loud roars were heard in the firmament.
Mbh.13.148.12459 Having heard the words of Vyasa as also of Narada endued with great intelligence, I have discoursed to thee on the adorableness of Krishna.
Mbh.13.148.12475 Even this is the command of the faultless and high-souled Narada.
Mbh.13.148.12476 Even he has commanded such worship of the great god, O son of Pandu, do thou obey that command of Narada.
Mbh.13.148.12481 I have learnt this from Narada and Vyasa, O king.
Mbh.13.148.12491 The Rishis also with Narada at their head, accepted and applauded the words of Bhishma and approved of them joyfully.
Mbh.13.150.12628 Samvarta, Merusavarna, the righteous Markandeya, and Sankhya and Yoga, and Narada and the great Rishi Durvasa, these are endued with severe penance and great self-restraint, and are celebrated over the three worlds.
Mbh.13.154.12893 Indeed, having heard all the facts from Narada, Utathya addressed' the celestial Rishi, saying, Go, O Narada, unto Varuna and speak with due severity unto him.
Mbh.13.154.12897 Thus requested by Utathya, the celestial Rishi Narada repaired to where Varuna was and addressing him, said, Do thou set free the wife of Utathya.
Mbh.13.154.12899 Hearing these words of Narada, Varuna replied unto him, saying, This timid girl is exceedingly dear to me.
Mbh.13.154.12901 Receiving this reply, Narada repaired to Utathya and cheerlessly said, O great ascetic, Varuna has driven me out from his house, seizing me by the throat.
Mbh.13.154.12904 Hearing these words of Narada, Angiras became inflamed with wrath.
Mbh.13.157.13086 Then Narada of great energy, coming there, O king, informed the deities how their foes; the Kapas, had been really slain by the Brahmanas of mighty energy and not by deities themselves.
Mbh.13.157.13087 Hearing these words of Narada, the denizens of heaven became highly gratified.
Mbh.13.165.13692 Then comes the three-eyed Lord of Lima; then Skanda the generalissimo of the celestial forces; then Visakha; then Agni the eater of sacrificial libations; then Vayu the god of wind; then Chandramas; then Aditya the god of the sun, endued with effulgence; then the illustrious Sakra the lord of Sachi; and Yama with his spouse Dhumorna; and Varuna with Gauri; Kuvera the lord of treasures, with his spouse Riddhi; the amiable and illustrious cow Surabhi; the great Rishi Visravas; Sankalpa, Ocean, Gangs: the other sacred Rivers; the diverse Maruts; the Valkhilyas crowned with success of penances; the island-born Krishna; Narada; Parvata; Viswavasu; the Hahas; the Huhus; Tumvuru; Chitrasena; the celestial messenger of wide celebrity; the highly blessed celestial maidens; the celestial Apsaras, Urvasi, Menaka, Rambha; Misrakesi, Alamvusha, Viswachi, Ghritachi, Panchachuda, Tilottama, the Adityas, the Vasus, the Aswins, the Pitris; Dharma Righteousness; Vedic lore, Penances, Diksha, Perseverance in religious acts, the Grandsire, Day and Night, Kasyapa the son of Marichi, Sukra, Vrihaspati, Mangala the son of Earth, Vudha, Rahu, Sanischara, the Constellations, the Seasons, the Months, the Fortnights, the Year, Garuda, the son of Vinata, the several Oceans, the sons of Kadru, viz, the Snakes, Satadru, Vipasa, Chandrabhaga, Saraswati, Sindhu, Devika, Prabhasa, the lakes of Pushkara, Ganga, Mahanadi, Vena, Kaveri, Narmada, Kulampuna Visalya, Karatoya, Amvuvahini.
Mbh.13.167.13752 He beheld his grandsire waited upon with reverence by Parasara's son Vyasa of great intelligence, by Narada, O royal sage, by Devala and Asita, and also by the remnant of unslain kings assembled from various parts of the country.
Mbh.13.167.13811 The celestial Rishi Narada told me this, as also Vyasa of austere penances.
Mbh.13.168.13849 They were followed by Vyasa, by Narada, by Asita, by Krishna, by the ladies of the Bharata race, as also by such of the citizens of Hastinapore as had come to the place.
Mbh.14.2.33 And thou hast heard the duties of the Kshatriyas, recited by Bhishma, the son of Bhagirathi, by Krishna Dwaipayana, Narada and Vidura.
Mbh.14.6.162 Vyasa said, Thus told, king Marutta became confused with shame, and while returning home with his mind oppressed by anxiety, he met Narada on his way.
Mbh.14.6.163 And that monarch on seeing the divine Rishi Narada stood before him with due salutation, with his hands clasped together.
Mbh.14.6.164 Then Narada addressing him thus said, O royal sage, thou seemest to be not well-pleased in thy mind; is all well with thee?
Mbh.14.6.167 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by the great Rishi Narada, king Marutta informed him of the rebuff he had received from his religious preceptor'
Mbh.14.6.169 Having met with this rebuff from him, I have no desire to live any longer now, for by his abandoning me thus, I have, O Narada, become contaminated with sin'
Mbh.14.6.170 Vyasa said, Thus told by that king, Narada, O mighty prince, made this reply to him with words which seemed to revive that son of Avikshit'
Mbh.14.6.171 Narada said, The virtuous son of Angira, Samvarta by name is wandering over all the quarters of the earth in a naked state to the wonder of all creatures; do thou, O prince, go to him.
Mbh.14.6.173 Marutta said, I feel as if instilled with new life, by these thy words, O Narada, but O the best of speakers, do thou tell me where I can find Samvarta, and how I can remain by his side, and how I am to act so that he may not abandon me, for I do not desire to live if I meet with a rebuff from him also'
Mbh.14.6.174 Narada said, Desirous of seeing Maheswara, O prince, he wanders about at his pleasure in the city of Varanasi, in the garb of a mad man.
Mbh.14.6.176 And if he enquires of thee as to the person who has given thee the information about his own self, do thou tell him that Narada has informed thee about Samvarta.
Mbh.14.6.178 Vyasa said, Having signified his assent to the proposal of Narada, that royal sage after duly worshipping him, and taking his permission, repaired to the city of Varanasi, and having reached there, that famous prince did as he had been told, and remembering the words of Narada, he placed a corpse at the gate of the city.
Mbh.14.7.187 Marutta said, I have been told by Narada, wandering on his way, that thou art the son of our family-priest, and this information has inclined my mind towards thee, with exquisite satisfaction'
Mbh.14.7.189 He Narada knows me to be a performer of sacrifices.
Mbh.14.7.190 Now tell me where is Narada living at present'
Mbh.14.7.191 Marutta said, That prince of celestial saints Narada having given me this information about thee, and commended me to thy care, has entered into the fire'
Mbh.14.14.392 And O monarch, that lord of men exhorted by the worshipful Viswarasraba himself, and by Dwaipayana Vyasa, Krishna Devasthana, Narada, Bhima, Nakula, Krishna Draupadi, Sahadeva, and the sharpwitted Vijaya, as well as by other great men, and Brahmanas versed in the Sastras, became relieved of all mental affliction and sorrow arising from the death of his dear relations.
Mbh.14.14.394 And that prince of Kuru's race having regained his kingdom, with a tranquil mind, thus addressed Vyasa, Narada and the other sages who were present.
Mbh.14.14.399 Therefore, O Brahmana, saint and grandsire do thou so ordain that under thy protection we may safety reach the Himalaya mountains, the performance of my sacrifice being entirely within thy control, and then the adorable celestial saint Narada and Devasthana have also addressed exquisite and well-meaning words for our well being.
Mbh.14.24.921 SECTION XXIV The Brahmana said, In this connection is cited the ancient story of the discourse between Narada and the Rishi Devamata'
Mbh.14.24.924 Narada said, By whatever the creature is created, that first comes unto him which is other or separate from him.
Mbh.14.24.929 Narada said, From Sankalpa wish arises Pleasure.
Mbh.14.52.2289 O thou that art irresistible, I have learnt it from Narada and Devala and the Island-born Vyasa, and the Kuru grandsire also, that all this universe rests on thee.
Mbh.14.88.3954 There was Narada, and there was Tumvuru of great splendour.
Mbh.15.20.793 SECTION XX Vaisampayana said, Those foremost of ascetics, viz Narada and Parvata and Devala of austere penances, came there to see king Dhritarashtra.
Mbh.15.20.798 At the conclusion of their converse, the celestial Rishi Narada, beholding all things as objects of direct perceptions, said the following words'
Mbh.15.20.799 Narada said, There was a ruler of the Kekayas, possessed of great prosperity and perfectly fearless.
Mbh.15.20.822 Vaisampayana continued, That high-souled chief of Kuru's race, possessed of learning, having, with his wife, heard these words of Narada, praised them and worshipped Narada with unprecedented honours.
Mbh.15.20.823 The conclave of Brahmanas there present became filled with great joy, and desirous of gladdening king Dhritarashtra, O monarch, themselves worshipped Narada with profound regards.
Mbh.15.20.824 Those foremost of regenerate persons also praised the words of Narada.
Mbh.15.20.825 Then the royal sage Satayupa, addressing Narada, said, Thy holy self hath enhanced the devotion of the Kuru king, of all those people here, and of myself also, O thou of great splendour.
Mbh.15.20.835 Thus addressed by him, Narada of celestial sight and endued with austere penances, said in the midst of the assembly these words highly agreeable to the minds of all'
Mbh.15.20.836 Narada said, Repairing at my will to the mansion of Sakra, I have seen Sakra the lord or Sachi; and there, O royal sage.
Mbh.15.29.1141 They were Narada, and Parvata and Devala of austere penances, and Viswavasu and Tumvuru, and Chitrasena,
Mbh.15.36.1430 Thou hast also heard the mysteries of the deities from Narada of celestial form.
Mbh.15.37.1529 SECTION XXXVII Naradagamana Parva Vaisampayana said, After two years had elapsed from the date of the return of the Pandavas from the retreat of their sire, the celestial Rishi, Narada, O king, came to Yudhishthira.
Mbh.15.37.1537 Narada said, I have not seen thee for a long while.
Mbh.15.37.1546 Narada said, Listen, O king, with calmness to me as I tell thee what I have heard and seen in that ascetic retreat.
Mbh.15.39.1637 SECTION XXXIX Narada said, The king has not been burnt to death by an unsanctified fire.
Mbh.15.39.1670 The great Rishi Narada, having comforted king Yudhishthira of righteous soul, went away to where he liked.
Mbh.16.1.28 Vaishampayana continued: One day, the Vrishni heroes numbering Sarana amongst them, saw Vishvamitra and Kanwa and Narada arrived at Dwaraka.
Mbh.16.6.223 Thyself, Narada, and the Munis, knew him to be the eternal and sinless Govinda, the Deity of unfading glory.
Mbh.17.1.21 The king, in honour of Hari and naming him repeatedly, fed the Island-born Vyasa, and Narada, and Markandeya possessed of wealth of penances, and Yajnavalkya of Bharadwajas race, with many delicious viands.
Mbh.17.3.174 Then Narada, that foremost of all speakers, endued with penances, and conversant with all the worlds, from amidst that concourse of deities, said these words: All those royal sages that are here have their achievements transcended by those of Yudhishthira.
Mbh.17.3.177 Hearing these words of Narada, the righteous-souled king, saluting the deities and all the royal sages there present, said, Happy or miserable, whatever the region be that is now my brothers, I desire to proceed to.
Mbh.18.1.17 Narada, smiling, told him, It should not be so, O king of kings.
Mbh.18.1.33 Though thus addressed by Narada, the Kuru king Yudhishthira, endued with great intelligence, enquired about his brothers and said, If these eternal regions reserved for heroes be Duryodhanas, that unrighteous and sinful wight, that man who was the destroyer of friends and of the whole world, that man for whose sake the entire Earth was devastated with all her horses and elephants and human beings, that wight for whose sake we were burnt with wrath in thinking of how best we might remedy our wrongs, I desire to see what regions have been attained by those high-souled heroes, my brothers of high vows, steady achievers of promises, truthful in speech, and distinguished for courage.
Mbh.18.1.35 I do not see them here, O Narada.
Mbh.18.1.36 I desire to see, O Narada, Virata and Drupada and the other great Kshatriyas headed by Dhrishtaketu, as also Shikhandi, the Pancala prince, the sons of Draupadi, and Abhimanyu, irresistible in battle.
Mbh.18.5.302 Narada recited the Mahabharata to the gods; Asita-Devala to the Pitris; Suka to the Rakshasas and the Yakshas; and Vaishampayana to human beings.
