MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.17.1326 SECTION XVII Astika Parva continued Sauti said, O ascetic, about this time the two sisters saw approaching near, that steed of complacent appearance named Uchchaihsravas who was worshipped by the gods, that gem of steeds, who arose at the churning of the Ocean for nectar.
Mbh.1.17.1328 Saunaka asked, Why did the gods churn the Ocean for nectar, and under what circumstances and when as you say, did that best of steeds so powerful and resplendent spring'
Mbh.1.17.1339 Seeing the celestial assembly in anxious mood Nara-yana said to Brahman, Do thou churn the Ocean with the gods and the Asuras.
Mbh.1.17.1341 O ye gods, chum the Ocean, ye will discover amrita
Mbh.1.18.1353 And the gods came to the shore of the Ocean with Ananta and addressed the Ocean, saying, O Ocean; we have come to churn thy waters for obtaining nectar'
Mbh.1.18.1354 And the Ocean replied, Be it so, as I shall not go without a share of it.
Mbh.1.18.1372 After the churning, O Brahmana, had gone on for some time, gummy exudations of various trees and herbs vested with the properties of amrita mingled with the waters of the Ocean.
Mbh.1.18.1382 After a while, the mild Moon of a thousand rays emerged from the Ocean.
Mbh.1.20.1436 SECTION XX Astika Parva continued Sauti said, Thus have I recited to you the whole story of how Amrita was churned out of the Ocean, and the occasion on which the horse Uchchaihsravas of great beauty and incomparable prowess was obtained.
Mbh.1.21.1459 On their way they saw the Ocean, that receptacle of waters, vast and deep, rolling and tremendously roaring, full of fishes large enough to swallow the whale, and abounding with huge makaras and creatures of various forms by thousands, and rendered inaccessible by the presence of other terrible, monster-shaped, dark, and fierce aquatic animals, abounding with tortoises and crocodiles, the mine of all kinds of gems, the home of Varuna the water-God, the excellent and beautiful residence of the Nagas, the lord of all rivers, the abode of the subterranean fire, the friend or asylum of the Asuras, the terror of all creatures, the grand reservoir of water, and ever immutable.
Mbh.1.22.1481 And having laid the wager, O best of Brahmanas, the two sisters Kadru and Vinata, the daughters of Daksha, proceeded in great delight along the sky to see the other side of the Ocean.
Mbh.1.22.1482 And on their way they saw the Ocean, that receptacle of waters, incapable of being easily disturbed, mightily agitated all of a sudden by the wind, and roaring tremendously; abounding with fishes capable of swallowing the whale and full of makaras; containing also creatures of diverse forms counted by thousands; frightful from the presence of horrible monsters, inaccessible, deep, and terrible, the mine of all kinds of gems, the home of Varuna the water-god, the wonderful habitations of the Nagas, the lord of rivers, the abode of the subterranean fire; the residence of the Asuras and of many dreadful creatures; the reservoir of water, not subject to decay, aromatic, and wonderful, the great source of the amrita of the celestials; immeasurable and inconceivable, containing waters that are holy, filled to the brim by many thousands of great rivers, dancing as it were in waves.
Mbh.1.22.1483 Such was the Ocean, full of rolling waves, vast as the expanse of the sky, deep, of body lighted with the flames of subterranean fire, and roaring, which the sisters quickly passed over
Mbh.1.23.1485 SECTION XXIII Astika Parva continued Sauti said, Having crossed the Ocean, Kadru of swift speed, accompanied by Vinata, soon alighted near the horse.
Mbh.1.25.1589 Thou art the great Ocean with heaving billows and abounding with whales, swallowers of whales, and makaras, and various fishes.
Mbh.1.62.3020 The Bharata is said to be as much a mine of gems as the vast Ocean or the great mountain Meru.
Mbh.2.48.1994 Bringing with them clarified butter in handsome Kamandalus made of gold, they did not obtain admission into the palace, and Ocean himself brought unto him in vessels of white copper the nectar that is generated within his waters and which is much superior to that which flowers and annual plants produce for Sakra.
Mbh.2.52.2185 And the Ocean himself brought in a sling that big conch of Varuna which the celestial artificer Viswakarman had constructed with a thousand Nishkas of gold, and which Prajapati had in a former Kalpa, presented unto India.
Mbh.2.66.2853 O Lord, O husband of Lakshmi, O Lord of Vraja Vrindavana, O destroyer of all afflictions, O Janarddana, rescue me who am sinking in the Kaurava Ocean.
Mbh.3.186.9240 And beholding Manu it said again, O pious and adorable father, take me to the Ganga, the favourite spouse of the Ocean so that I may live there; or do as thou listest.
Mbh.3.187.9382 And then, O Bharata, the Ocean oversteps his continents, the mountains sunder in fragments, and the Earth sinks under the increasing flood.
Mbh.3.275.13411 Then crossing the Ocean, the Ten headed Ravana reached Gokarna, the favourite resort of the illustrious god armed with the trident.
Mbh.3.281.13797 I will, however, pray to the Ocean for the necessary means.
Mbh.3.281.13802 The divine and illustrious Ocean then that lord of male and female rivers, surrounded by aquatic animals, appeared unto Rama in a vision.
Mbh.3.281.13803 And addressing Rama in sweet accents, the genius of the Ocean, surrounded by countless mines of gems, said, O son of Kausalya, tell me what aid, O bull among men, I am to render thee!
Mbh.3.281.13814 And having said these words, the genius of the Ocean disappeared.
Mbh.3.284.13916 Rama with his monkey host hath crossed the Ocean by a bridge and disregarding us all is waging a terrible war against us.
Mbh.3.284.13918 and it is to recover her that he hath come hither, after having made a bridge over the great Ocean.
Mbh.5.98.4648 The son, endued with great wisdom, of Varuna, the Lord of the Ocean, is even much distinguished for his conduct and disposition and for his holiness.
Mbh.5.102.4747 A single jet only of her milk, falling on the earth, created what is known as the sacred and the excellent Milky Ocean
Mbh.6.34.1594 I am Ocean among receptacles of water.
Mbh.6.120.6637 Like unto the vortex that occurs at the spot where the Ganga meets the Ocean, for a short while a vortex occurred there where the troops of both armies met and struck one another down.
Mbh.6.123.6825 As human beings are, in this world, foremost of all creatures, as Garuda is the foremost of all winged creatures; as the Ocean is the foremost among all receptacles of water and the cow among all quadrupeds; as the Sun is the foremost amongst all luminous bodies and Himavat among all mountains; as the Brahmana is the foremost among all castes, art thou the foremost of all bowmen!
Mbh.7.74.3231 If the Siddhas, the Rudras, the Vasus, with the Aswins, the Maruts with Indra: at their head the Viswadevas with other gods, the Pitris, the Gandharvas, Garuda, the Ocean, the mountains, the firmament, Heaven, Earth, the point of the compass cardinal and subsidiary, and the regents of those points, all the creatures that are domestic and all that are wild, in fact if all the mobile and the immobile beings together, become the protectors of the ruler of the Sindhus, yet, O slayer of Madhu, shalt thou behold Jayadratha slain by me tomorrow in battle with my arrows!
Mbh.7.74.3251 As Lakshmi is ever present in Soma, as water is ever present in the Ocean, know this, O Janarddana, that even so is my vow ever accomplished!
Mbh.7.113.5567 Having thus resisted Kritavarman who resembled the thousand-armed Arjuna of old, or Ocean himself of immeasurable might, Satyaki proceeded onwards.
Mbh.7.129.6446 Sanjaya said, Mounting upon another car that was duly equipped Karna once more proceeded against the son of Pandu, with the fury of the Ocean tossed by the tempest.
Mbh.8.34.1652 They made the excellent Ocean, that abode of the Danavas its other axle.
Mbh.8.42.2269 The immeasurable Ocean, that lord of all waters, rusheth with fierce impetuosity for overwhelming innumerable creatures.
Mbh.8.42.2272 Like the continent resisting the Ocean, I will today resist that mightiest of the mighty, that great warrior possessing the highest weapons, that hero like unto the Ocean's self of far-reaching arrows, fierce, and having shafts for his waves, while he will be engaged in overwhelming hostile kings.
Mbh.8.56.3216 Indeed that melancholy host stood motionless in that dreadful battle like the Ocean, O king, during a calm in autumn.
Mbh.8.56.3217 Stupefied, that host stood even like the Ocean in calm.
Mbh.9.33.2479 Proceeding to the western Ocean at the spot where the Sarasvati mingles with the Ocean, that vast receptacle of waters, let him adore that God of gods Mahadeva there!
Mbh.9.43.3129 Ocean gave him two mighty companions named Sangraha and Vigraha, both armed with maces.
Mbh.9.45.3358 Thou always residest, O god, in the Ocean, that home of makaras!
Mbh.9.45.3359 This Ocean, the lord of rivers, will then be under thy dominion!
Mbh.9.48.3537 Arrived at the coast of the Ocean, that lord of rivers, O Bharata, the righteous-souled Devala saw Jaigishavya arrived there before him.
Mbh.12.43.2178 Thou art the Ocean, thou art without attributes, thou hast three humps, thou hast three abodes, and thou takest human forms on earth, descending from heaven.
Mbh.12.49.2641 At these words, Ocean suddenly created for Jamadagni's son, on his other shore, a region called Surparaka.
Mbh.12.49.2662 Equal unto the lord of Maruts in energy, they have been brought up by Ocean.
Mbh.12.50.2675 The scions of Kshatriyas, troubled with the fear of Rama, were concealed and brought up by kine, Ocean, leopards, bears and apes.
Mbh.12.58.3242 Ocean, that lord of rivers, and Himavat, the king of mountains, and Sakra, O Yudhishthira, bestowed upon him inexhaustible wealth.
Mbh.12.112.6426 Bhishma said, In this connection is cited the old story of the discourse between the Ocean and the Rivers.
Mbh.12.112.6427 In days of old, eternal Ocean, that lord of Rivers, that refuge of the foes of the celestials, asked all the Rivers for resolving this doubt that had arisen in his mind'
Mbh.12.112.6428 The Ocean said, Ye Rivers, I see that all of you, with your full currents, bring away trees of large trunks, tearing them off with their roots and branches.
Mbh.12.112.6434 Thus addressed, the River Ganga, replied unto Ocean, that lord of all Rivers, in these words of grave import, fraught with reason, and, therefore, acceptable to all'
Mbh.12.121.6902 Meru was made the king of the mountains, and Ocean was made the lord of the rivers.
Mbh.12.165.9852 The Ocean became agitated with high billows and awful eddies.
Mbh.12.181.10936 From that Lotus sprang Brahman, that Ocean of Veda
Mbh.12.193.11600 Sometimes the Intelligence which is made up of the triple states already mentioned, transcends those three states by yoga, like the lord of rivers, viz, the Ocean, with his surges, transgressing his high continents
Mbh.12.273.16772 That path which leads to the Eastern Ocean is not the path by which one can go to the Western Ocean.
Mbh.12.283.17522 The Ocean rose in a surge.
Mbh.12.284.17584 Thou art the receptacle of the Ocean.
Mbh.12.284.17591 O thou of mighty form, the Ocean and the Sky are thy two forms.
Mbh.12.284.17640 Salutations to thee that art of the banks of Rivers, of Rivers themselves, and of the lord of all Rivers viz, the Ocean!
Mbh.12.284.17787 Thou art the Ocean.
Mbh.12.285.17865 From those five primal essences are created all creatures, and into those five great elements all creatures resolve themselves, repeatedly, like the infinite waves of the Ocean rising from the Ocean and subsiding into that which causes them.
Mbh.12.285.17907 As the lord of rivers, viz, the surging Ocean, always keeps within his continents, even so the Understanding, which exists in connection with the three states, exists in the Mind including the senses.
Mbh.12.295.18455 Indeed, as all rivers, male and female, have their refuge in the Ocean, even so men belonging to all the other orders have their refuge in the householder
Mbh.12.301.18889 Truly understanding gunas by the aid of hundreds of gunas, hundreds of faults, and diverse causes by hundreds of causes, ascertaining that the world is like the froth of water, enveloped by hundreds of illusions flowing from Vishnu, like a painted edifice, and as unsubstantial as a reed, beholding it to be as terrible as a dark pit, or as unreal as bubbles of water, for the years that compose its age are as shortlived compared to the duration of eternity as bubbles, seeing it exposed to immediate destruction, bereft of happiness, having certain ruin for its end and from which it can never escape, sunk in Rajas and Tamas, and utterly helpless like an elephant sunk in mire, noting all this, the Sankhyas, O king, endued with great wisdom, casting off all affections arising from one's relation towards one's children, by the aid, O king, of that extensive and all-embracing knowledge which their system advocates and cutting off quickly, with the weapon of knowledge and the bludgeon of penances, O Bharata, all inauspicious scents born of Rajas and all scents of a like nature arising from Tamas and all auspicious scents arising from Sattwa and all pleasures of the touch and of the other senses born of the same three qualities and inhering to the body, indeed, O Bharata, aided by the Yoga of knowledge, these Yatis crowned with success, cross the Ocean of life.
Mbh.12.301.18890 That Ocean, so terrible has sorrow for its waters.
Mbh.12.302.18998 O slayer of foes, I ask thee the distinction that exists, O thou of mighty arms, between the Deteriorating and the Undeteriorating ones for understanding them both truly, O delighter of the Kurus, Brahmanas conversant with the Vedas speak of thee as an Ocean of knowledge.
Mbh.12.308.19462 If in course of time he succeeds in crossing that Ocean of Ignorance in which he is sunk, he then succeeds in avoiding rebirth altogether and attaining to identity with the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.308.19463 The Ocean of Ignorance is terrible.
Mbh.12.308.19465 O Bharata, day after day, creatures are seen to fall and sink in that Ocean.
Mbh.12.308.19466 Since thou, O king, hast been freed from that eternal and limitless Ocean of Ignorance, thou, hast, therefore become freed from Rajas and also Tamas
Mbh.12.310.19514 It behoveth thee, O foremost of Brahmanas, to discourse on all these topics unto me that am solicitous of obtaining thy grace; I am ignorant while thou art an Ocean of knowledge.
Mbh.12.336.21550 The country where we underwent the austerest of penances, lies to the north of the mountains of Meru and on the shores of the Ocean of Milk.
Mbh.12.336.21555 On the northern shores of the Ocean of Milk there is an island of great splendour called by the name of White Island.
Mbh.12.339.21984 In days of yore, O monarch, the deities and the Asuras, uniting together, churned the Ocean and t wised the Amrita.
Mbh.12.339.21997 Sojourning through the welkin to the Ocean of Milk which is always the abode of nectar, and worshipping the great God there, he came back to his own hermitage.
Mbh.12.340.22045 In consequence of those penances of mine and of the restraint under which I kept my senses while I dwelt on the shores of the Ocean of milk, Narayana became gratified with me.
Mbh.12.340.22080 After this, those deities and Rishis, with Brahman, proceeded to the northern shores of the Ocean of milk, desirous of doing good to the three worlds.
Mbh.12.340.22188 Bow unto Him who always resides in the Ocean, and who is called Hari, and whose hair is like the blades of the Munja grass.
Mbh.12.342.22408 On the occasion of churning the Ocean for raising the amrita, Vrihaspati of Angiras race sat on the shores of the Ocean for performing the rite of Puruscharana.
Mbh.12.342.22410 At this Vrihaspati became angry and cursed the Ocean, saying, Since thou continuest to be so dirty regardless of the fact of my having come to thee for touching thee, since thou hast not become clear and transparent, therefore from this day thou shalt be tainted with fishes and sharks and tortoises and other aquatic animals.
Mbh.12.342.22572 While engaged in practising severe austerities on the breast of Meru, he summoned the Ocean to his presence.
Mbh.12.342.22573 The Ocean, however, disobeyed his summons.
Mbh.12.342.22574 Incensed at this, the Rishi, with the heat of his body, caused the waters of the Ocean to become as saltish in taste as the human sweat.
Mbh.12.342.22578 It is for this curse that the waters of the Ocean to this day are saltish to the taste and are drunk by no one else than the Equine-head
Mbh.12.342.22598 When in days of yore the Earth became submerged in the waters and lost to the view, I found her out and raised her from the depths of the Ocean.
