MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.133 When I heard that Arjuna, after having pierced the mark in the arena had won Draupadi, and that the brave Panchalas had joined the Pandavas, then, O Sanjaya, I had no hope of success.
Mbh.1.1.191 When I heard the son of Drona and others by slaying the Panchalas and the sons of Draupadi in their sleep, perpetrated a horrible and infamous deed, then, O Sanjaya, I had no hope of success.
Mbh.1.2.382 Then comes the third parva called Aranyaka relating to the forest This parva treats of the wending of the Pandavas to the forest and the citizens, following the wise Yudhishthira, Yudhishthira's adoration of the god of day; according to the injunctions of Dhaumya, to be gifted with the power of maintaining the dependent Brahmanas with food and drink: the creation of food through the grace of the Sun: the expulsion by Dhritarashtra of Vidura who always spoke for his master's good; Vidura's coming to the Pandavas and his return to Dhritarashtra at the solicitation of the latter; the wicked Duryodhana's plottings to destroy the forest-ranging Pandavas, being incited thereto by Karna; the appearance of Vyasa and his dissuasion of Duryodhana bent on going to the forest; the history of Surabhi; the arrival of Maitreya; his laying down to Dhritarashtra the course of action; and his curse on Duryodhana; Bhima's slaying of Kirmira in battle; the coming of the Panchalas and the princes of the Vrishni race to Yudhishthira on hearing of his defeat at the unfair gambling by Sakuni; Dhananjaya's allaying the wrath of Krishna; Draupadi's lamentations before Madhava; Krishna's cheering her; the fall of Sauva also has been here described by the Rishi; also Krishna's bringing Subhadra with her son to Dwaraka; and Dhrishtadyumna's bringing the son of Draupadi to Panchala; the entrance of the sons of Pandu into the romantic Dwaita wood; conversation of Bhima, Yudhishthira, and Draupadi; the coming of Vyasa to the Pandavas and his endowing Yudhishthira with the power of Pratismriti; then, after the departure of Vyasa, the removal of the Pandavas to the forest of Kamyaka; the wanderings of Arjuna of immeasurable prowess in search of weapons; his battle with Mahadeva in the guise of a hunter; his meeting with the lokapalas and receipt of weapons from them; his journey to the regions of Indra for arms and the consequent anxiety of Dhritarashtra; the wailings and lamentations of Yudhishthira on the occasion of his meeting with the worshipful great sage Brihadaswa.
Mbh.1.2.470 Then the great charioteer, the son of Drona, of terrible wrath, vowed, without killing all the Panchalas including Drishtadyumna, and the Pandavas also with all their allies, I will not take off armour'
Mbh.1.2.473 At the sight of this, Aswatthaman, his heart full of rage at the thought of his father's fate, resolved to slay the slumbering Panchalas.
Mbh.1.2.476 And then accompanied by Kritavarman and Kripa he slew all the sons of Draupadi, all the Panchalas with Dhrishtadyumna and others, together with their relatives, slumbering unsuspectingly in the night.
Mbh.1.2.478 Those escaped owing to Krishna's counsels, then the charioteer of Dhrishtadyumna brought to the Pandavas intelligence of the slaughter of the slumbering Panchalas by the son of Drona.
Mbh.1.94.5179 All the tribes of the Panchalas are descended from Dushmanta and Parameshthin.
Mbh.1.94.5185 And the Panchalas setting out to invade the whole earth with their four kinds of troops soon brought the whole earth under their sway.
Mbh.1.94.5186 And with their ten Akshauhinis the king of the Panchalas defeated the Bharata prince.
Mbh.1.131.7019 O monarch, when Prishata was dead, this Drupada of mighty arms became the king of the northern Panchalas.
Mbh.1.132.7050 Thus addressed by his friend, the son of Bharadwaja, with a joyous heart, the lord of the Panchalas was ill-able to bear that speech.
Mbh.1.133.7112 When the king installeth me as monarch of the Panchalas, the kingdom shall be thine.
Mbh.1.140.7437 Those bulls among men, smiting the Panchalas on their way, laid siege to the capital of the great Drupada.
Mbh.1.140.7448 And the fierce arrows of that monarch fell fast on all sides, till conchs and trumpets and drums by thousands began to be sounded by the Panchalas from their houses giving the alarm.
Mbh.1.140.7468 The Panchalas and the Srinjayas, on the other hand, thus assailed by the Pandava, met him with a perfect shower of weapons of various kinds.
Mbh.1.140.7474 Then the king of the Panchalas, accompanied by the generalissimo of his forces Satyajit, rushed with speed at Arjuna like the Asura Samvara rushing at the chief of the celestials in days of yore.
Mbh.1.140.7482 Then cutting in twain his antagonist's bow, Arjuna rushed at the king of the Panchalas, but Satyajit, quickly taking up a tougher bow, pierced with his arrows Partha, his chariot, charioteer, and horses.
Mbh.1.140.7486 The king of the Panchalas, beholding his general thus discomfited in the encounter, himself began to shower his arrows upon the Pandava prince.
Mbh.1.140.7515 And after his defeat by Drona, Drupada also ruled the southern Panchalas up to the bank of the Charmanwati river.
Mbh.1.158.8274 And in the course of their wanderings they saw the countries of the Matsyas, the Trigartas, the Panchalas and then of the Kichakas, and also many beautiful woods and lakes therein.
Mbh.1.168.8595 And Bharadwaja had a friend named Prishata who was the king of Panchalas.
Mbh.1.168.8619 The Brahmana continued, The king of the Panchalas, thus addressed by the wise son of Bharadwaja, told that best of Brahmanas and foremost of all persons conversant with weapons, these words, O high-souled son of Bharadwaja, blest be thou, let it be so, let there be eternal friendship between us as thou desirest'
Mbh.1.169.8678 Then the Panchalas in great joy shouted, Excellent, Excellent'
Mbh.1.169.8679 The very earth seemed at that time unable to bear the weight of the Panchalas mad with joy.
Mbh.1.169.8681 He shall dispel all the fears of the Panchalas and spread their fame.
Mbh.1.169.8692 On hearing these words, the Panchalas uttered a loud leonine roar, and the earth was unable to bear the weight of that joyous concourse.
Mbh.1.171.8735 Ye mighty ones, go therefore, to the capital of the Panchalas and dwell ye there.
Mbh.1.185.9356 The Brahmanas then said, Go ye this very day to the abode of Drupada in the country of the Panchalas.
Mbh.1.186.9375 SECTION CLXXXVII Swayamvara Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Thus addressed by the Brahmanas, the Pandavas, O Janamejaya, proceeded towards the country of the southern Panchalas ruled over by the king Drupada.
Mbh.1.186.9379 Devoted to study, pure in their practices, amiable, and sweet-speeched, the Pandavas at last entered the country of the Panchalas.
Mbh.1.186.9409 The Pandavas, too, entering that amphitheatre, sat with the Brahmanas and beheld the unequalled affluence of the king of the Panchalas.
Mbh.1.194.9681 Then Yudhishthira addressed him and said, The king of the Panchalas hath, by fixing a special kind of dower, given away his daughter according to the practice of his order and not freely.
Mbh.1.194.9689 It behoveth not, therefore, the king of the Panchalas to grieve for his daughter today.
Mbh.1.194.9692 While Yudhishthira was saying all this, another messenger from the king of the Panchalas, coming thither in haste, said, The nuptial, feast is ready
Mbh.1.195.9698 Riding on them, come ye into the abode of the king of the Panchalas'
Mbh.1.197.9772 SECTION CLXLVIII Vaivahika Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Then all the Pandavas and the illustrious king of the Panchalas and all others there present stood up and saluted with reverence the illustrious Rishi Krishna Dwaipayana.
Mbh.1.197.9804 I will not, O king of the Panchalas, discourse on this before you all.
Mbh.1.200.9938 The sons of Pandu endued with great strength, after their wedding were over, and after they had obtained Krishna like unto a second Sri along with great wealth, passed their days in joy and happiness, like so many Indras, in the capital of the king of the Panchalas SECTION CCI Vaivahika Parva continued Vaisampayana said, King Drupada, after his alliance with the Pandavas, had all his fears dispelled.
Mbh.1.203.10056 As long as our party is strong and that of the king of the Panchalas is weak, so long strike them without any scruple.
Mbh.1.203.10058 As long as the king of the Panchalas together with his sons gifted with great prowess, setteth not his heart upon fighting with us, so long, O king, exhibit thy prowess.
Mbh.1.207.10215 And, O king of Panchalas, Dhritarashtra and all the Kurus, in consequence of this alliance with thee regard themselves supremely blest.
Mbh.2.14.598 And the king of the Salwayana tribe with their brethren and followers; and the southern Panchalas and the eastern Kosalas have all fled to the country of the Kuntis.
Mbh.2.14.600 And so all the Panchalas, alarmed at the power of Jarasandha, have left their own kingdom and fled in all directions.
Mbh.2.28.1200 That tiger among men, the son of Pandu, going first into the great country of the Panchalas, began by various means to conciliate that tribe.
Mbh.2.51.2173 And, O Bharata, only two do not pay tribute unto the son of Kunti, viz, the Panchalas in consequence of their relationship by marriage, and the Andhakas and Vrishnis in consequence of their friendship.
Mbh.2.79.3448 Nor will the mighty bowmen of the Vrishni race, nor the mighty warriors amongst the Panchalas suffer this in silence.
Mbh.3.12.664 O slayer of Madhu, while the sons of Pandu and the Panchalas and the Vrishnis lived, they dared express the desire of using me as their slave!
Mbh.3.51.2546 The mighty warriors of the Vrishnis also, and the Panchalas of great energy, and the sons of Pritha themselves, led by Vasudeva of unbaffled prowess, will blast my legions.
Mbh.3.52.2587 And filled with sorrow at their separation from Arjuna and at the loss of their kingdom, the mighty-armed Bhima among them addressed Yudhishthira, saying, That Bull of the Bharata race, Arjuna, O great king, on whom depend the lives of Pandu's sons, and on whose death the Panchalas as also ourselves with our sons and Satyaki and Vasudeva are sure to die, hath gone away at thy behest.
Mbh.3.80.3931 Without that mighty-armed one relying upon whom the Panchalas and the Kauravas fear not the sternly-exerting ranks of the celestials themselves, without that illustrious hero relying upon whose arms we all regard our foes as already vanquished and the earth itself as already conquered, without that Phalguna I cannot obtain any peace in the woods of Kamyaka.
Mbh.3.92.4958 If, however, that king refuses to grant them proper allowances, the king of the Panchalas will, for our satisfaction and welfare, give them these
Mbh.4.4.110 And let all these maid-servants of Draupadi go to the Panchalas, with our charioteers and cooks.
Mbh.4.4.177 And when those heroes had departed, Dhaumya, that best of ascetics, taking their sacred fires, set out for the Panchalas.
Mbh.4.5.181 And those mighty warriors endued with great strength and hitherto leading the lives of hunters by killing the deer of the forest, passed through Yakrilloma and Surasena, leaving behind, on their right, the country of the Panchalas, and on their left, that of the Dasarnas.
Mbh.4.20.826 O represser of foes, the misery, therefore, that hath overtaken me, hath really humiliated the entire Kuru race, the Panchalas, and the sons of Pandu.
Mbh.5.5.125 And at the request of those lions of the Kuru race, as also of the two kings of the Matsyas and the Panchalas, many lords of the earth possessed of great strength, came to the place with cheerful hearts.
Mbh.5.5.131 And the king of the Panchalas, having consulted the wishes of Yudhishthira, despatched to the Kurus his own priest, who was old both in years and understanding'
Mbh.5.19.844 And that army, so arranged, was beheld by the priest who had been sent by the king of the Panchalas to the Kurus
Mbh.5.21.889 He is now paying no regard to that stipulation, but confident of aid from the Matsyas and Panchalas, he wisheth to get back his ancestral throne.
Mbh.5.22.963 Go thou speedily on a car, despatched by me, where the troops of the king of the Panchalas are encamped.
Mbh.5.25.1037 Sanjaya said, I greet Yudhishthira, and Vrikodara and Dhananjaya, and the two sons of Madri, and Vasudeva the descendant of Sura, and Satyaki, and the aged ruler of the Panchalas, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata.
Mbh.5.25.1056 Therefore, I appease, I prostrate myself before Krishna and the aged kin I g of the Panchalas.
Mbh.5.31.1414 Let the Panchalas mingle with the Kurus in merry laughter.
Mbh.5.31.1415 That I may see the Kurus and the Panchalas whole and sound, is what I desire.
Mbh.5.50.2847 Sanjaya said, All the Panchalas, along with the other sons of Pandu, are looking up to Yudhishthira's face, blessed be thou, and he too is restraining them all.
Mbh.5.50.2848 Multitudes of cars belonging to the Pandavas and the Panchalas are coming in separate bodies for gladdening Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, ready to march to the field of battle.
Mbh.5.50.2849 As the sky brightens up at the advent of the rising sun, so the Panchalas are rejoicing at their union with Kunti's son of blazing splendour, risen like a flood of light.
Mbh.5.50.2850 The Panchalas, the Kekayas, and the Matsyas, along with the very herdsmen that attend on their kine and sheep, are rejoicing and gladdening Yudhishthira, the son of Pandu.
Mbh.5.53.2976 Even thou, O son, hast told me of my mighty enemies, viz, the kings of the Panchalas, the Kekayas, the Matsyas, and the Magadhas.
Mbh.5.54.3015 The Matsyas, the Panchalas, the Salways and the Surasenas, all decline to pay thee homage now and all disregard thee.
Mbh.5.57.3149 And Drupada, the king of the Panchalas, surrounded by his ten heroic sons, Satyajit and others, headed by Dhrishtadyumna, and well-protected by Sikhandin, and having furnished his soldiers with every necessary thing, hath come there with a full Akshauhini, desirous of honouring Yudhishthira.
Mbh.5.57.3175 Those that have Yudhishthira for their leader, the slayer of Madhu for their protector, the heroic Savyasachin and Vrikodara for their warriors, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata, and Satyaki, and Drupada, and Dhrishtaketu with his son, and Uttamaujas, and the unconquerable Yudhamanyu of the Panchalas, and Sikhandin, and Kshatradeva, and Uttara, the son of Virata, and Kasayas, the Chedis, the Matsyas, the Srinjayas, Vabhru the son of Virata, the Panchalas, and the Prabhadrakas, for fighting for them, those, indeed, from whom Indra himself cannot, if they are unwilling, snatch this earth, those heroes, cool and steady, in fight, who can split the very mountains, alas, it is with them that are endued with every virtue and possessed of superhuman prowess that this wicked son of mine, O Sanjaya, desireth to fight, disregarding me even though I am crying myself hoarse'
Mbh.5.57.3182 I tell thee, in consequence of our crowds of cars and snares of arrows, the Panchalas and the Pandavas will all be routed'
Mbh.5.57.3191 Unto him saying thus, the virtuous king Yudhishthira said, The Panchalas and the Pandavas wholly depend upon thy prowess and steadiness.
Mbh.5.61.3313 Thou wilt hear of defeat of the Pandavas and the Matsyas, the Panchalas and the Kekayas, of Satyaki and Vasudeva, at my hands.
Mbh.5.62.3324 Having obtained the favour of that Rishi, I will slay within the twinkling of an eye the Panchalas, the Karushas, the Matsyas, and the sons of Pritha with their sons and grandsons, and bestow on thee numerous regions won by my weapons.
Mbh.5.72.3551 Having the Kasis, the Panchalas, the Chedis, and the Matsyas, for my allies and with thee, O slayer of Madhu, for my protector, I prayed for only five villages, etc,
Mbh.5.82.3925 O Kesava, the sons of Pandu, the Panchalas, and the Vrishnis being all alive, exposed to the gaze of the assembly I was treated as a slave by those sinful wretches.
Mbh.5.140.6274 Let the family priest of the Pandavas who is devoted to Vedic rites, and those bulls among men-those brothers, the five sons of Pandu, and the five sons of Draupadi, and the Panchalas, and the Chedis, and myself also, install thee as the lord of the whole earth.
Mbh.5.140.6279 Then Nakula and Sahadeva, and the five sons of Draupadi, and the Panchalas with that mighty car-warrior Sikhandin, will all proceed behind thee.
Mbh.5.141.6324 Dhrishtadyumna, the prince of the Panchalas, that mighty car-warrior Satyaki, Uttamaujas, Yudhamanyu, the prince of Somakas who is devoted to truth, the ruler of the Chedis, Chekitana, the invincible Sikhandin, the Kekaya brothers, all of the hue of Indragopaka insects, Bhimasena's uncle Kuntibhoja of high soul and possessed of steeds endued with the colours of the rainbow, the mighty car-warrior Syenajit, Sanka the son of Virata, and thyself, O Janardana, like an ocean, great is this assemblage, O Krishna, of Kshatriyas that hath been made by Yudhishthira.
Mbh.5.144.6447 King Yudhishthira, having the Chedis, the Panchalas, and the Kekayas, Bhima and Arjuna, Krishna, Yuyudhana, and the twins for his allies, stayeth yet at Upaplavya, and from affection for kinsmen, looketh up to righteousness only, like a weak man, though he is possessed of great strength.
Mbh.5.144.6457 What can be a greater grief than this that the Pandavas, the Chedis, the Panchalas, and the Yadavas, assembled together, will fight with the Bharatas?
Mbh.5.152.6807 And the Prabhadrakas and the Panchalas marched behind Bhimasena.
Mbh.5.161.7185 Say also, from me, unto Dhrishtadyumna, the prince of Panchalas, these words, viz, The hour hath now come for thee, and thou also hast come for thy hour!
Mbh.5.165.7480 And at the head of that vast force was that mighty bowman, the prince of Panchalas, invincible in battle, viz, Dhrishtadyumna, desirous of obtaining Drona for his antagonist.
Mbh.5.166.7520 Wronged by the sons of Pandu, these Dhartarashtras, endued with energy, will assuredly slay in the encounter the Panchalas irresistible in combat.
Mbh.5.168.7598 Afflicting the ranks of the enemy at the head of his own large force, he will consume the Panchalas like fire consuming a heap of dry grass.
Mbh.5.169.7655 Coming in contact with me, whose arrows never go for nothing, the Pandavas and the Panchalas will fly away in all directions like oxen when they come in contact with a tiger!
Mbh.5.172.7739 SECTION CLXXII Bhishma said, That subjugator of hostile cities, Sikhandin, the son of the king of the Panchalas, is, O king, in my judgment, one of the foremost of Yudhishthira's Rathas.
Mbh.5.172.7741 He hath a large number of troops, Panchalas and Prabhadrakas, to support him.
Mbh.5.172.7750 Those brave warriors among the Panchalas, viz, Jayanta and Amitaujas and the great car-warrior Satyajit are all, O king, high-souled Maharathas.
Mbh.5.173.7792 But, thou of mighty arms, I will not strike or slay Sikhandin the prince of Panchalas, even if I behold him rushing against me in battle with weapons upraised.
Mbh.5.174.7802 Thou hadst, O mighty-armed one, formerly told me, I will slay the Panchalas with the Somakas, O son of Ganga, tell me, O grandsire the reason of the present reservation' Bhishma said, Listen, O Duryodhana, to this history, with all these lords of earth, as to why I will not slay Sikhandin even if I behold him in battle!
Mbh.5.192.8592 And the daughter of Hiranyavarman, having ascertained that Sikhandin was really a woman, bashfully represented unto her nurses and companions everything about the so-called son of the king of the Panchalas.
Mbh.5.193.8605 King Hiranyavarman, however, ascertaining once again, that the child of the king of the Panchalas was really a daughter, issued out of his city without losing any time.
Mbh.5.193.8608 Then, O monarch, king Hiranyavarman held a consultation with his ministers about the ruler of the Panchalas.
Mbh.5.193.8609 And it was settled among those high-souled kings that if, O monarch, Sikhandin was really a daughter, they should bind the ruler of the Panchalas and drag him from his city, and installing another king over the Panchalas they should slay Drupada with Sikhandin.
Mbh.5.193.8614 And possessed with great fright and with heart afflicted with grief, the king of the Panchalas said unto his favourite wife, the mother of Sikhandin, these words, My powerful brother, king Hiranyavarman, having mustered a large force, is coming towards me in anger.
Mbh.5.195.8699 The king of the Dasarnakas meanwhile, filled with sorrow and grief, suddenly approached Drupada, the ruler of the Panchalas.
Mbh.5.195.8701 And he addressed the envoy, saying, Instructed by me, O messenger, say unto that worst of kings the ruler of the Panchalas, these words, viz, O thou of wicked understanding, having selected my daughter as a wife for one who is thy daughter, thou shalt today, without doubt, behold the fruit of that act of deception'
Mbh.5.195.8704 The king of the Panchalas then, with Sikhandin, offered the envoy, O king, a cow and honey.
Mbh.5.195.8755 And Drupada, the ruler of the Panchalas, along with his son Sikhandin whose wishes had been crowned with success, and with also his kinsmen, became exceedingly glad.
Mbh.6.1.18 Seeing Duryodhana, the Panchalas who took delight in battle, were filled with joy and blew their loud-sounding conches and cymbals of sweet sounds.
Mbh.6.9.503 They are the Kuru-Panchalas, the Salwas, the Madreyas, the Jangalas, the Surasena, the Kalingas, the Vodhas, the Malas, the Matsyas, the Sauvalyas, the Kuntalas, the Kasi-kosalas, the Chedis, the Karushas, the Bhojas, the Sindhus, the Pulindakas, the Uttamas, the Dasarnas, the Mekalas, the Utkalas; the Panchalas, the Kausijas, the Nikarprishthas, Dhurandharas; the Sodhas, the Madrabhujingas, the Kasis, and the further-Kasis; the Jatharas, the Kukuras, O Bharata; the Kuntis, the Avantis, and the further-Kuntis; the Gomantas, the Mandakas, the Shandas, the Vidarbhas, the Rupavahikas; the Aswakas, the Pansurashtras, the Goparashtras, and the Karityas; the Adhirjayas, the Kuladyas, the Mallarashtras, the Keralas, the Varatrasyas, the Apavahas, the Chakras, the Vakratapas, the Sakas; the Videhas, the Magadhas, the Swakshas, the Malayas, the Vijayas, the Angas, the Vangas, the Kalingas, the Yakrillomans; the Mallas, the Suddellas, the Pranradas, the Mahikas, the Sasikas; the Valhikas, the Vatadhanas, the Abhiras, the Kalajoshakas; the Aparantas, the Parantas, the Pahnabhas, the Charmamandalas; the Atavisikharas, the Mahabhutas, O sire; the Upavrittas, the Anupavrittas, the Surashatras, Kekayas; the Kutas, the Maheyas, the Kakshas, the Samudranishkutas; the Andhras, and, O king, many hilly tribes, and many tribes residing on lands laying at the foot of the hills, and the Angamalajas, and the Manavanjakas; the Pravisheyas, and the Bhargavas, O king; the Pundras, the Bhargas, the Kiratas, the Sudeshnas, and the Yamunas, the Sakas, the Nishadhas, the Anartas, the Nairitas, the Durgalas, the Pratimasyas, the Kuntalas, and the Kusalas; the Tiragrahas, the Ijakas, the Kanyakagunas, the Tilabharas, the Samiras, the Madhumattas, the Sukandakas; the Kasmiras, the Sindhusauviras, the Gandharvas, and the Darsakas; the Abhisaras, the Utulas, the Saivalas, and the Valhikas; the Darvis, the Vanavadarvas, the Vatagas, the Amarathas, and the Uragas; the Vahuvadhas, the Kauravyas, the Sudamanas, the Sumalikas; the Vadhras, the Karishakas, the Kalindas, and the Upatyakas; the Vatayanas, the Romanas, and the Kusavindas; the Kacchas, the Gopalkacchas, the Kuruvarnakas; the Kiratas, the Varvasas, the Siddhas, the Vaidehas, and the Tamraliptas; the Aundras, the Paundras, the Saisikatas, and the Parvatiyas, O sire.
Mbh.6.14.729 Like unto a mighty cloud of high altitude, having the twang of his bowstring for its roar, his arrows for its rain-drops, and the sound of his bow for its thunder, that hero showering his shafts on Kunti's sons with the Panchalas and the Srinjayas on their side, smote hostile car-warriors like the slayer of Vala smiting the Danavas.
Mbh.6.19.924 The high-souled Yajnasena, the king of the Panchalas, endued with great prowess, stationed himself behind Virata with an Akshauhini of troops for the sake of the Pandavas.
Mbh.6.47.2345 And the palmyra standard of Bhishma was seen to glide continually, O Bharata, through the Chedis, the Kasis, the Karushas, and the Panchalas.
Mbh.6.49.2538 SECTION XLIX Dhritarashtra said, When the generalissimo Sweta, O son, was slain in battle by the enemy, what did those mighty bowmen, the Panchalas with the Pandavas, do?
Mbh.6.49.2586 And soon abandoning in that battle, Pandu's son Arjuna capable of drawing the bow with even his left hand, Bhishma rushed towards Drupada, the king of the Panchalas, surrounded by his host.
Mbh.6.51.2676 And the ruler of Kasi, and Saivya, and Sikhandin the mighty car-warrior, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Virata, and the mighty car-warrior Satyaki, and that great bowman the king of the Panchalas, and the five sons of Draupadi, all blew their large conches and set up leonine roars.
Mbh.6.52.2694 And this Drona, and Kripa and Salya and Vikarna, O Janardana, united with Dhritarashtra's sons headed by Duryodhana, and protected by this firm bowman, will slaughter the Panchalas.
Mbh.6.52.2706 Then the prince of the Panchalas, supported by the Somakas, advanced towards the great bowman Drona who was engaged in seeking the welfare of Ganga's son.
Mbh.6.52.2755 And the encounter also, O king, that took place between Drona and the prince of the Panchalas, was awful
Mbh.6.53.2769 And beholding that difficult feat achieved by Dhrishtadyumna, the Panchalas with the Pandavas, filled with delight, set up loud shouts.
Mbh.6.53.2789 And then the mighty prince of the Panchalas of strong arms, taking a large and beautiful shield decked with a hundred moons, and a large scimitar of beautiful make, rushed impetuously from desire of slaying Drona, like a hungry lion in the forest towards an infuriate elephant.
Mbh.6.54.2894 There exists nobody on earth, save Bhima and Satyaki, who to the prince of the Panchalas is dearer than his very life.
Mbh.6.54.2920 And worshipped by the Panchalas and the Matsyas, O bull of Bharata's race, he embraced Dhrishtadyumna and then approached Satyaki.
Mbh.6.56.2984 And Dhrishtadyumna, and Sikhandin, with the Panchalas and the Prabhadrakas, and supported by other troops, were stationed in the middle, O Bharata, for battle.
Mbh.6.59.3082 SECTION LIX Dhritarashtra said, After that dreadful vow had been made in battle by Bhishma enraged by the words of my son, what, O Sanjaya, did Bhishma do unto the sons of Pandu or what did the Panchalas do unto the grandsire?
Mbh.6.59.3235 And ascertaining that twang to be of Gandiva, king Virata and other heroes among men, and the brave Drupada, the king of the Panchalas, all proceeded to that spot with undepressed hearts.
Mbh.6.59.3251 And beholding the foremost warriors of that army of the Kurus thus slain by Phalguni, the Chedis, the Panchalas, the Kurushas, the Matsyas, and all the combatants of the Pandava side, those foremost of men, elated with victory, together set up a loud shout for frightening the Kaurava warriors.
Mbh.6.61.3310 Then, O king, that vanquisher of foes, the commander of the Pandava army, the prince of the Panchalas, beheld the cars of the father and the son thus surrounded by the foe.
Mbh.6.61.3319 Then, O bull of Bharata's race, Samyamani's son, standing on that car whose steeds were slain, looked at the son of the renowned king of the Panchalas.
Mbh.6.64.3492 And beholding the enemy advancing, the Panchalas with the Pandavas, headed by Yudhishthira, pursued them behind.
Mbh.6.64.3499 We have also been greatly mangled by Panchalas and the Pandavas.
Mbh.6.72.3872 But the Panchalas and the Somakas, though slain by Bhishma thus, forming yet a laudable resolution, rushed towards Bhishma.
Mbh.6.80.4222 And with his arrows he began to despatch the combatants of the Panchalas to the domains of Yama.
Mbh.6.87.4584 Then Dhrishtadyumna, the prince of the Panchalas, and that mighty car-warrior Satyaki, greatly afflicted the Bharata host with showers of arrows and lances.
Mbh.6.87.4591 Thereupon that mighty car-warrior, viz, the prince of the Panchalas, quickly jumping down from that car of his, mounted without loss of time the car of the high-souled Satyaki.
Mbh.6.87.4595 Drona also, who always does what is agreeable to thy son, inflamed with wrath in that battle, began to consume the Panchalas like fire consuming a heap of cotton.
Mbh.6.89.4656 Then all the Pandava troops, at the command of Dharma's son, rushed at the son of Ganga who was grinding everything with his whetted arrows, Bhishma, however, who delighted in battle felled the mightiest of bowmen amongst the Srinjayas and the Panchalas, with his shafts.
Mbh.6.89.4657 Though thus slaughtered by Bhishma, the Panchalas along with the Somakas still rushed impetuously at him, forsaking the fear of death.
Mbh.6.94.4945 The grandsire, too, excited with rage, is ready to slaughter the Panchalas.
Mbh.6.96.5122 Then commenced a fierce battle between Bhagadatta, O sire, and the Panchalas, the Srinjayas, and the Kekayas, with upraised weapons.
Mbh.6.98.5245 I will slay, O king, all the Somakas and the Panchalas and the Karushas along with the Kekayas, O Bharata-these were thy words to me.
Mbh.6.99.5282 As regards myself, I will, O tiger among men, slay all the Somakas and the Panchalas assembled together, avoiding Sikhandin alone.
Mbh.6.104.5540 Then the five sons of Draupadi, and the five Kaikeya brothers and Satyaki also of the Satwata race, headed by Yudhishthira, all rushed towards Ganga's son, desirous of protecting the Panchalas headed by Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.6.106.5619 Protected by us in battle, our grandsire Bhishma will slay all the Panchalas along with the Pandavas.
Mbh.6.108.5899 Arjuna said, Sikhandin, O Krishna, will certainly be the cause of Bhishma's death, for Bhishma, as soon as he beholds the prince of the Panchalas, abstains from striking.
Mbh.6.109.5915 And behind them was Dhrishtadyumna protected by the Panchalas.
Mbh.6.109.5941 That invincible and great bowman, then, reckless of his very life poured upon the Pandavas, the Panchalas, and the Srinjayas, showers of long shafts and calf-toothed and crescent-shaped arrows.
Mbh.6.110.5980 SECTION CX Dhritarashtra said, How did Sikhandin the prince of the Panchalas, excited with wrath, rushed in battle against the grandsire, viz, Ganga's son of righteous soul and regulated vows.
Mbh.6.110.5989 The Panchalas and the Pandavas were unable to bear that great bowman battling with them and slaying his foes with his shafts.
Mbh.6.110.6010 And he drained the energies of those royal and mighty car-warriors that were the foremost among the Panchalas, like the Sun sucking up the moisture of the earth with his rays.
Mbh.6.116.6294 O chastiser of foes, beholding Bhishma, fighting at the head of the Kurus, and Arjuna also fighting at the head of the Panchalas, we could not say truly on which side the victory would declare itself.
Mbh.6.116.6304 If thou wishest to do what is agreeable to me, strive to slay me, placing Partha with the Panchalas and the Srinjayas at thy van.
Mbh.6.116.6318 Supported by the Chedis and the Panchalas, the ape-bannered Arjuna, placing Sikhandin ahead, proceeded towards Bhishma, the son of Santanu.
Mbh.6.117.6386 Drona, encountering Dhrishtadyumna the prince of the Panchalas in dreadful battle, fought fiercely with his straight shafts.
Mbh.6.119.6520 And then he slew seven great car-warriors among the Matsyas and the Panchalas.
Mbh.6.119.6534 Then the king of the Panchalas the valiant Dhrishtaketu, Bhimasena the son of Pandu, Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, Chekitana, and the five Kaikaya brothers, and the mighty-armed Satyaki and Subhadra's son, and Ghatotkacha, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Sikhandin, and the valiant Kuntibhoja, and Susarman, and Virata, these and many other powerful warriors of the Pandava army, afflicted by the shafts of Bhishma, seemed to sink in an ocean of grief, Phalguni, however, rescued them all.
Mbh.6.119.6542 Frequently looking at Sikhandin the prince of the Panchalas with a laugh, he aimed not a single arrow at him, recollecting his femininity.
Mbh.6.119.6544 Then confused cries of woe soon arose amongst the Matsyas, the Panchalas, and the Chedis, who were together rushing at that single hero.
Mbh.6.120.6557 Then, disregarding the king of the Panchalas and Dhrishtaketu, he penetrated, O monarch, into the midst of the Pandava army.
Mbh.6.120.6688 And the Somakas and the Panchalas all rejoiced, O king.
Mbh.6.121.6704 Sanjaya said, Slain in the evening the Kuru grandsire Bhishma saddened the Dhartarashtras and delighted the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.1.4 Janamejaya said, Hearing that his sire Devavrata of unrivalled vigour and sturdiness, and might, energy and prowess, had been slain by Sikhandin, the prince of the Panchalas, what, indeed, O regenerate Rishi, did the powerful king Dhritarashtra with eyes bathed in tears do?
Mbh.7.7.251 Agitated and broken by Drona, the large host of the Pandavas and the Panchalas broke like rows of cranes by force of the wind.
Mbh.7.7.253 Slaughtered by Drona, like Danavas by Vasava, the Panchalas headed by Dhrishtadyumna trembled in that battle.
Mbh.7.8.279 Then the Panchalas and the Pandavas boldly approached Drona, who, armed with his bow of great force, resembled a fire having weapons for its flames.
Mbh.7.8.285 Of soul incapable of being depressed, Drona then, armed with bow and arrows, afflicted the five princes of Kekaya and the ruler of the Panchalas and then rushed against the division of Yudhishthira.
Mbh.7.8.292 Indeed, O king, having achieved the most difficult feats, he hath, at last, been slain by the Pandavas and the Panchalas of cruel deeds.
Mbh.7.9.304 How, indeed, O child, could Prishata's son, viz, Dhrishtadyumna the prince of the Panchalas, slay that hero incapable of being humiliated by enemies, who scattered thick showers of shafts furnished with wings of gold, and who was endued with great lightness of hand, that foremost of Brahmanas, who was accomplished in everything, acquainted with all modes of warfare, capable of shooting his shafts to a great distance, and self-restrained, who was possessed of great skill in the use of weapons and armed with celestial weapons, that mighty warrior, of unfading glory, who was always careful, and who achieved the fiercest feats in battle?
Mbh.7.10.377 The foremost among the Panchalas, possessed of heroism, high-born and the favourite of all high-born heroes, ever achieving good deeds in battle, viz, Uttamaujas, that Prince ever engaged in the welfare of Arjuna, born for only my evil, equal unto Yama, or Vaisaravana, or Aditya, or Mahendra, or Varuna, that prince regarded as a mighty car-warrior and prepared to lay down his life in the thick of battle, O, what heroes of my army surrounded him?
Mbh.7.13.524 Then commenced a battle, that was fierce and that made the hairs stand on their ends, between the Pandavas and the Kurus, and Drona and the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.14.581 Drona, having pierced the ruler of the Panchalas with ten shafts, was, in return, pierced by the latter with many shafts.
Mbh.7.16.724 Then the protector of Yudhishthira's car-wheels, Kumara, the renowned prince of the Panchalas, received the advancing Drona, like the continent receiving the surging sea.
Mbh.7.16.734 Then, Virata and Drupada, and the Kaikeya princes, and Satyaki, and Sivi, and Vyaghradatta, the prince n the Panchalas, and the valiant Singhasena, these, and many others, desirous of rescuing Yudhishthira, surrounded Drona on all sides and impeded his way, scattering countless arrows.
Mbh.7.16.735 Vyaghradatta, the prince of the Panchalas, pierced Drona with fifty keen-pointed arrows, at which, O king, the troops uttered loud shouts.
Mbh.7.16.752 Then the Pandavas and the Srinjayas and the Panchalas, filled with joy, praised Partha with delightful speeches like the Rishis praising the Sun.
Mbh.7.20.919 And while the prince of the Panchalas and that foremost one of Kuru's race were thus engaged in battle, Drona consumed many sections of Yudhishthira's host.
Mbh.7.21.976 Thus afflicted in battle by the prince of the Panchalas, Drona could not brook that act.
Mbh.7.21.979 But though his bows were thus repeatedly cut off, the prince of the Panchalas conversant with the highest weapons continued to battle with him of red steeds.
Mbh.7.21.981 Upon the slaughter of that foremost of combatants, that mighty car-warrior among the Panchalas, Yudhishthira, from fear of Drona, fled away, borne by fleet steeds.
Mbh.7.21.982 Then the Panchalas, the Kekayas, the Matsyas, the Chedis, the Karushas and the Kosalas, seeing Drona, rushed at him, desirous of rescuing Yudhishthira.
Mbh.7.21.989 Having vanquished the Matsyas, the son of Bharadwaja then defeated the Chedis, the Karushas, the Kaikeyas, the Panchalas, the Srinjayas.
Mbh.7.21.1041 Upon the fall of that illustrious prince of the Panchalas, loud cries were heard thereof, Slay Drona, Slay Drona'
Mbh.7.21.1042 The mighty Drona then began to crush and mangle the Panchalas, the Matsyas, the Kaikeyas, the Srinjayas, and the Pandavas, all excited with rage.
Mbh.7.21.1045 And the Panchalas, the Kaikeyas and the Matsyas, thus slaughtered on all sides like the Danavas by Indra, began to tremble with fear
Mbh.7.22.1046 SECTION XXII Dhritarashtra said, When the Pandavas were broken by Bharadwaja's son in hat dreadful battle, and the Panchalas also, was there anybody that approached Drona for battle?
Mbh.7.22.1049 Sanjaya said, Beholding the Panchalas, the Pandavas, the Matsyas, the Srinjayas, the Chedis, the Kalikeyas, thus routed after being broken in battle by Drona with his shafts, beholding them thus driven from the field by those showers of fleet arrows shot from Drona's, bow, like vessels sent adrift by the awful waves of the tempest-tossed ocean, the Kauravas with many leonine shouts and with the noise of diverse instruments, began to assail the cars and elephants and foot-soldiers of that hostile host from all sides.
Mbh.7.22.1051 Duryodhana said, Behold, O Radha's son, the Panchalas broken by that firm bowman Drona with his shafts, like a herd of the wild deer frightened by a lion.
Mbh.7.22.1069 Other car-warriors headed by Satyajit, together with the Panchalas, the Kekayas, the Matsyas, and especially the Pandavas, are following him.
Mbh.7.23.1092 Behind the king was the royal chief of the Panchalas, viz, Drupada, with a golden umbrella over his head and himself protected by all those soldiers that followed Yudhishthira.
Mbh.7.23.1131 That tiger among the Panchalas who is known by the name of Janamejaya, had excellent steeds of the hue of mustard flowers.
Mbh.7.23.1132 Fleet, gigantic and dark blue steeds decked with chains of gold, with backs of the hue of curd and faces of the hue of the moon, bore with great speed the ruler of the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.24.1274 Meanwhile, king Yudhishthira, thinking Vrikodara to have been slain, surrounded Bhagadatta on all sides, aided by the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.24.1276 Then Bhagadatta, that king of the mountainous regions, frustrating with his iron hook that shower of arrows, began to consume both the Pandavas and the Panchalas by means of that elephant of his.
Mbh.7.24.1293 As the Panchalas fled in all directions, loud and awful was the noise that arose amongst them, made by their elephants and steeds.
Mbh.7.29.1503 The Panchalas urged their troops, saying, Drona, Drona'
Mbh.7.29.1507 Dhrishtadyumna, the prince of the Panchalas, proceeded to the side of all those Panchala car-warriors whom Drona sought to crush.
Mbh.7.29.1519 The encounter that we beheld between Drona and the prince of the Panchalas was highly wonderful.
Mbh.7.30.1594 Those irresistible and invincible warriors, however, viz, the Panchalas and the Pandavas, inspired by noble sentiments, did not, though afflicted with shafts, avoid Drona.
Mbh.7.30.1595 Then Drona, excited with great rage, shot hundreds of shafts, and caused a great carnage amongst the Chedis, the Panchalas, and the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.33.1724 And the strength of Drona's arms that we saw was wonderful in the extreme, inasmuch as the Panchalas and the Srinjayas failed to approach him.
Mbh.7.33.1741 Bhima said, I myself will follow thee, and Dhrishtadyumna and Satyaki, and the Panchalas, and the Prabhadrakas.
Mbh.7.37.1902 Duhsasana, in particular, that tiger among the Kurus, hearing those words of Duryodhana, answered the latter, saying, O monarch, I tell thee that even I will slay this one in the very sight of the Pandavas and before the eyes of the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.38.1929 Beholding this, the Pandavas, the five sons of Draupadi, Virata, the Panchalas, and the Kekayas, uttered leonine shouts.
Mbh.7.38.1932 Seeing that implacable and proud foe of theirs thus vanquished, those mighty car-warriors, viz, the five sons of Draupadi, who had on their banners the images of Yama and Maruta and Sakra and the twin Aswins, and Satyaki, and Chekitana, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Sikhandin, and the Kekayas, and Dhrishtaketu, and the Matsyas, Panchalas, and the Srinjayas, and the Pandavas headed by Yudhishthira, were filled with joy.
Mbh.7.41.2032 Indeed, those heroes, viz, the Matsyas, the Panchalas, the Kaikeyas, and the Pandavas, exerting themselves vigorously, succeeded in approaching the presence of Jayadratha, but none of them could bear him.
Mbh.7.70.3008 Is it all right, O giver of honours, with the ruler of the Panchalas, or Virata, or all our warriors, O thou of unfading glory?
Mbh.7.70.3080 Alas, if I had known that Pandavas and the Panchalas would be able to protect my son in battle, I myself would have then protected him.
Mbh.7.76.3303 By whom, alas, hast thou been helplessly slain when thou hadst the Pandavas, O lord, and all the Panchalas, for thy protectors?
Mbh.7.76.3307 Fie on the strength of Bhimasena, on the bowmanship of Partha, on the prowess of the Vrishni heroes, and the might of the Panchalas!
Mbh.7.81.3577 Commanded by the king, the man introduced that concourse of heroes, consisting of Virata and Bhimasena and Dhrishtadyumna and Satyaki, and Dhrishtaketu, the ruler of the Chedis, and the mighty car-warriors, Drupada, and Sikhandin, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and Chekitana, and the ruler of the Kalikayas, and Yuyutsu, of Kuru's race, and Uttamaujas of the Panchalas, and Yudhamanyu, and Suvahu, and the five sons of Draupadi.
Mbh.7.83.3694 There where Vrikodara and Arjuna are, and the Vrishni hero, Satyaki, and Uttamaujas of the Panchalas, and the invincible Yudhamanyu, and the irrepressible Dhrishtadyumna, and the unvanquished Sikhandin, the Asmakas, the Kekayas, and Kshatradharman of the Somakas, the ruler of the Chedis, and Chekitana, and Vibhu, the son of the ruler of the Kasi, the sons of Draupadi, and Virata and the mighty car-warrior Drupada, and those tigers among men viz, the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the stayer of Madhu to offer counsel, who is there in this world that would fight these, expecting to live?
Mbh.7.84.3721 If thou hadst done any of these acts, the Pandavas, the Panchalas, the Vrishnis, and the other kings would then have never known thy wrong-headedness.
Mbh.7.92.4227 Like an immovable hill resisting the fiercest current of water, Drona, however, resisted in that battle the enraged Pandavas and Panchalas and Kekayas.
Mbh.7.92.4242 Upon the Kaurava host being divided into three bodies during that dreadful carnage by the Pandavas, Drona, filled with wrath, began to consume the Panchalas with his shafts.
Mbh.7.92.4260 The chief of Avanti, with the Sauviras and the cruel Prabhadrakas, resisted wrathful Dhrishtadyumna, the prince of the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.94.4306 And during the progress of that terrible carnage, when all the warriors were battling with one another fearlessly the mighty Drona fought with the mighty prince of the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.94.4308 And Drona and the prince of the Panchalas, cutting off the heads of men by thousands, scattered them on the field of battle, making the latter resemble a forest of lotuses.
Mbh.7.94.4335 Even thus did that bull amongst the Sinis, the prince of the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.94.4336 Beholding Satyaki to rescue the prince of the Panchalas in the dreadful battle, Drona quickly shot at him six and twenty arrows.
Mbh.7.103.4766 SECTION CV Dhritarashtra said, After Arjuna had got the ruler of the Sindhus within sight, what, O Sanjaya, did the Panchalas, attacked by Bharadwaja's son, do, encountering the Kurus'
Mbh.7.103.4767 Sanjaya said, In the afternoon of that day, O monarch, in the battle that took place between the Panchalas and the Kurus, Drona became, as it were, the stake for which each fought on to win or lose.
Mbh.7.103.4768 The Panchalas, O sire, desirous of slaying Drona, cheerfully uttered loud roars and shot dense showers of arrows.
Mbh.7.103.4769 Indeed, that encounter between the Panchalas and the Kurus, fierce, awful, and highly wonderful as it was, resembled that in days of yore between the gods and the Asuras.
Mbh.7.103.4770 Indeed, all the Panchalas with the Pandavas, obtaining Drona's car within reach used many mighty weapons, desirous of piercing through his array.
Mbh.7.105.4905 And it wafted away, O king, countless Chedis and Panchalas and Srinjayas.
Mbh.7.107.4993 In that encounter, five and twenty warriors among the Panchalas were slain by Drona, who were all regarded as Maharathas and all approved as such by Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.7.107.4994 And amongst all the troops of the Pandavas and the Panchalas, men quietly beheld brave Drona slaying the foremost of warriors in succession.
Mbh.7.107.4996 The mighty-armed Drona vanquished the Panchalas, the Srinjayas, the Matsyas and the Kekayas, O monarch, by hundreds and thousands.
Mbh.7.107.4998 The gods, Gandharvas, and the Pitris, said, Behold, the Panchalas, and the Pandavas, with all their troops, are flying away'
Mbh.7.108.5151 The five Kekaya brothers, and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, and Virata, and Drupada, and the mighty car-warrior Sikhandin and Dhrishtaketu of great strength, and Kuntibhoja, O sire, Nakula, and Sahadeva, and the Panchalas, and the Srinjayas, all these, O sire, will without doubt, very carefully protect me.
Mbh.7.110.5254 Then the son of the king of the Panchalas, viz, the invincible warrior Dhrishtadyumna, the king Vasudana, both loudly exclaimed with the Pandava host, Come, smite quickly, and rush against the foe, so that Satyaki, that warrior invincible battle, in might pass easily through the Kaurava host.
Mbh.7.110.5331 The Panchalas, however, who were headed by Bhimasena, having approached the son of Hridika, that foremost of car-warriors, all became cheerless.
Mbh.7.111.5397 How could the Panchalas pierce that great bowman in the fight?
Mbh.7.111.5398 Desirous of Dhananjaya's victory, the Panchalas are inveterate foes of Drona.
Mbh.7.111.5458 Having thus vanquished the Parthas, that mighty car-warrior then vanquished the Chedis, the Panchalas, the Srinjayas, and the Kekayas, all of whom are endued with great prowess.
Mbh.7.114.5611 The valiant son of Bharadwaja, beholding the array broken in his absence by the Pandavas and the Panchalas, made no endeavour to follow the grandson of Sini, but employed himself in protecting his broken array.
Mbh.7.114.5612 Checking the Pandavas and the Panchalas then, the Drona fire, blazing up in wrath stayed there, consuming everything, like the sun that rises at the end of the Yuga
Mbh.7.118.5796 There, again, those heroes, viz, the Panchalas, and the Pandavas, united together, are rushing from all sides from desire of slaughtering thee, O chastiser of foes, do thou determine which of these tasks should first demand attention.
Mbh.7.119.5816 Having thyself provoked such fierce hostilities with the Panchalas and the Pandavas, why art thou afraid in battle in the presence of Satyaki alone?
Mbh.7.119.5844 Drona also, that foremost of car-warriors, excited with wrath, rushed against the Panchalas and the Pandavas, with moderate speed.
Mbh.7.119.5846 And Drona, O king, proclaiming his name in that battle, caused a great carnage among the Pandavas, the Panchalas, and the Matsyas.
Mbh.7.119.5847 The illustrious Viraketu, the son of the ruler of the Panchalas, rushed against the son of Bharadwaja who thus engaged in vanquishing the Pandava ranks.
Mbh.7.119.5849 The sight that I then beheld, O monarch, in that battle, was exceedingly wonderful, inasmuch as Drona, though exerting himself vigorously could not approach the prince of the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.119.5850 Then, O sire, the Panchalas, beholding Drona checked in battle, surrounded the latter on all sides, O king, from desire of king Yudhishthira's victory.
Mbh.7.119.5855 Then the prince of the Panchalas quickly fell down from his car, like a Champaka tree uprooted by the wind, falling down from a mountain summit.
Mbh.7.119.5856 Upon the fall of that great bowman, that prince endued with great might, the Panchalas speedily encompassed Drona on every side.
Mbh.7.119.5866 Beholding those mighty car-warriors, resembling the very celestials among the Panchalas slain, Dhrishtadyumna inflamed with rage, shed tears in that battle.
Mbh.7.119.5871 The prince of the Panchalas then, furious with rage, struck Drona in the chest with many straight shafts.
Mbh.7.119.5883 upon, the battle that took place between Drona and the prince of the Panchalas was wonderful in the extreme, like that between Indra and Prahlada, both desirous of the sovereignty of the three worlds.
Mbh.7.119.5887 And the Panchalas, O king, loudly exclaimed, Without doubt, Drona, having encountered Dhrishtadyumna in battle, will succumb to us.
Mbh.7.119.5889 Then the steeds, O king, of the high-souled Dhrishtadyumna ran away and after those steeds had carried away Dhrishtadyumna from the field, Drona, endued with great prowess, began to rout the Panchalas and the Srinjayas in that battle.
Mbh.7.119.5890 Having vanquished the Pandus and the Panchalas, Bharadwaja's son of great prowess, that chastiser of foes, once more took up his station in the midst of his own array.
Mbh.7.121.5946 The warriors, O king, thus urged by Bhimasena and the prince of the Panchalas, smothered the Kauravas, becoming reckless of their very lives.
Mbh.7.121.5960 Seeing then that army thus smitten by thy son, O king, the Panchalas headed by Bhimasena rushed at them.
Mbh.7.121.5972 Beholding thy son thus advancing in great battle, the Panchalas, cheerfully and with hopes of victory, advanced to receive him.
Mbh.7.121.5973 Then Drona, desirous of rescuing the Kuru king, received the rushing Panchalas, like a mountain receiving masses of rain-charged clouds driven by tempest.
Mbh.7.122.6031 Thus slaughtered by Drona, like the Asuras by Sakra, the Panchalas began to tremble like a herd of kine afflicted with cold.
Mbh.7.122.6033 Scorched by the sun and slaughtered by means of those arrows, the Panchalas then became filled with anxiety.
Mbh.7.122.6034 Stupefied by Bharadwaja's son with his arrowy showers in that battle the mighty car-warriors among the Panchalas felt like persons whose thighs had been seized by alligators.
Mbh.7.122.6036 And the Chedis, the Panchalas, and the Srinjayas addressed one another, saying, Drona is slain!
Mbh.7.122.6041 After those foremost ones among the Chedis had been exterminated, the Panchalas, afflicted with the shafts of Drona, began to tremble.
Mbh.7.122.6058 Beholding the steeds of Chekitana pierced with the arrows of Bharadwaja's son, and his car also deprived of driver, the Panchalas and the Pandavas were filled with great fear.
Mbh.7.122.6059 Drona then, O sire, routing on all sides the Panchalas and the Srinjayas united together in battle looked exceedingly resplendent.
Mbh.7.123.6066 SECTION CXXV Sanjaya said, When the army of the Pandavas was thus agitated on all sides, the Parthas and the Panchalas and the Somakas, retreated to a great distance.
Mbh.7.123.6067 During the progress of that fierce battle, making the hair stand on end, and that universal carnage like to what happens, O Bharata, at that end of the Yuga, when, indeed, Drona of great prowess was repeatedly uttering leonine shouts, and when the Panchalas were being weakened and the Pandavas slaughtered, king Yudhishthira the Just, failing in that battle to find any refuge in that distress, began, O king, to think how the matter would end.
Mbh.7.124.6167 And as that mighty-armed hero proceeded, the brave Panchalas and the Somakas followed him behind, like the celestials following Maghavat.
Mbh.7.127.6354 As regards myself, I will stay here, for despatching others to the presence of Jayadratha and checking the Panchalas, the Pandus and the Srinjayas united together.
Mbh.7.127.6368 Duryodhana also, O monarch, then slew the four steeds as also the two Parshni charioteers of Uttamaujas, the prince of Panchalas.
Mbh.7.132.6588 Indeed, neither Partha, nor the Panchalas, nor Kesava, nor Satyaki, when excited with wrath in battle, shows the least regard for his life.
Mbh.7.146.7683 And those two mighty bowmen sat down on the ground, surrounded by the Panchalas, Beholding those two heroes filled with joy and arrived and waiting with joined hands, the son of Kunti congratulated them both, saying, By good luck, it is that I see you both, ye heroes, escaped with lire from that sea of hostile troops, that sea in which Drona acted the part of an invincible alligator, and the son of Hridika that of a fierce shark.
Mbh.7.147.7710 Having slain him, Sikhandin, his aspiration fulfilled, stayeth at the very van of all the troops, surrounded by all the Panchalas, covetous of another triumph
Mbh.7.147.7726 O foremost of all bearers of arms, I tell thee truly and swear by the good acts I have performed, by the prowess I possess and by my sons, that slaying all the Panchalas with the Pandavas, I shall obtain peace of mind, or slain by them in battle I shall repair to those regions whither those allies of mine have gone.
Mbh.7.148.7772 Until I succeed in slaying the Panchalas with Sikhandin, I feel like one sinking in the Dhristadyumna-mire.
Mbh.7.148.7781 For achieving thy good in battle, O son of Dhritarashtra, I will not without slaying all the Panchalas, put off my armour.
Mbh.7.150.7847 Resolved to go to the other world, the Panchalas and the Kauravas fought with one another for admission into the swelling domains of Yama.
Mbh.7.150.7853 So great was the confusion that the Panchalas and the Kurus could only be distinguished from each other by the tribal, the family, and the personal names we heard them utter.
Mbh.7.150.7863 Slaughtered by thy illustrious son, armed with the bow, by means of his gold-winged arrows of blazing points, the Panchalas ran away in all directions.
Mbh.7.150.7867 As, again, an assemblage of lotuses becomes shorn of its beauty when the water over which it grows is dried up by the sun and the wind, even so became the Pandava host being dried up by thy son, O Bharata, the Panchalas, with Bhimasena then with ten shafts, and each of the sons of Madri with three, and Virata and Drupada each with six, and Sikhandin with a hundred, and Dhrishtadyumna with seventy, and Yudhishthira with seven, and the Kaikeyas and the Chedis with innumerable keen shafts, and Satwata with five, and each of the five sons of Draupadi with three, and Ghatotkacha also with a few, he uttered a leonine shout.
Mbh.7.150.7881 Then the Panchalas also solicitous of victory, began to advance with speed.
Mbh.7.151.7892 How did that bull among car-warriors, who consumed all the troops of the Panchalas like a raging conflagration, meet with his death'
Mbh.7.151.7896 Similarly, king Drupada, the father of Dhrishtadyumna, protected by the Panchalas proceeded, O king, against Drona.
Mbh.7.152.7942 When after the fall of the heroic Jayadratha and of Bhurisravas, that unvanquished warrior of great energy, that scorcher of foes, viz, the unconquerable Drona, proceeded against the Panchalas, what did Arjuna think?
Mbh.7.152.7948 Having penetrated into the midst of the Panchalas how did that great bowman, that scorcher of foes, that tiger among men, meet with his death
Mbh.7.153.8051 Beholding the two brothers resolutely proceeding towards Drona's division, the mighty car-warriors among the Panchalas, the Srinjayas, the Matsyas, the Chedis, the Karushas, the Kosalas, and the Kaikeyas, O king, all followed them.
Mbh.7.154.8268 Oppressed by Drona, the Panchalas fled away from fear, in the very sight of Bhimasena and of the illustrious Partha.
Mbh.7.154.8271 Then the Kaikeyas, the Srinjayas, and the Panchalas of great energy followed the two brothers, O king, accompanied by the Matsyas and the Satwatas.
Mbh.7.155.8278 Our combatants are now encompassed on all sides by the Panchalas, the Kaikeyas, the Matsyas, and the mighty car-warriors of the Pandavas, all filled, with rage and resembling hissing snakes.
Mbh.7.155.8280 The vast car-force of the Panchalas is possessed of the prowess of Sakra himself'
Mbh.7.155.8284 I will slay the son of Pandu and all the assembled Panchalas, I will give thee victory, like Pavaka's son giving victory unto Vasava.
Mbh.7.155.8290 I will vanquish in battle all the Pandavas united together and all the Panchalas, the Kaikeyas, and the Vrishnis assembled together.
Mbh.7.156.8402 Sanjaya continued, Then the Pandavas, O king, and the Panchalas, celebrated for their prowess, uniting together approached in thousands, uttering loud shouts; Karna also, that foremost of car-warriors, endued with great energy, surrounded by many foremost ones among the Kuru warriors and resembling Sakra in the midst of the celestials, waited, drawing his bow and relying on the might of his own arms.
Mbh.7.156.8405 Then Pandavas, O monarch, and the Panchalas, celebrated for their prowess, beholding the mighty-armed Karna, loudly shouted, saying, There is Karna' Where is Karna in this fierce battle,
Mbh.7.156.8457 I myself will slay Partha with the assembled Panchalas.
Mbh.7.156.8483 Neither the gods nor the Danavas are capable of staying within the range of thy weapons, O son of Drona, slay the Panchalas and the Somakas with all their followers.
Mbh.7.156.8485 Yonder, O Brahmana, the Somakas and the Panchalas, possessed of great fame, are careering amid my troops like a forest-conflagration.
Mbh.7.156.8489 Thou hast been born, O mighty-armed one, for the destruction of the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.156.8490 Putting forth thy prowess, thou shalt make the world destitute of Panchalas.
Mbh.7.156.8493 Therefore, O tiger among men, slay the Panchalas with all their followers.
Mbh.7.156.8494 The very gods with Vasava at their head are incapable of staying within the range of thy weapons, what need be said then of the Parthas and the Panchalas?
Mbh.7.156.8500 Thou art competent, O mighty-armed one, aided by thy own celestial energy, to afflict, O giver of honours, the Pandavas and the Panchalas
Mbh.7.157.8525 I will fight with the Panchalas, the Somakas, the Kaikeyas, and the Pandayas also, in battle, for doing what is agreeable to thee, O chastiser of foes.
Mbh.7.157.8526 Scorched with my arrows today, the Chedis, the Panchalas, and the Somakas, will fly away on all sides like a herd of kine afflicted by a lion.
Mbh.7.157.8528 Dharma's son, Yudhishthira, will become exceedingly cheerless, beholding the Panchalas and Somakas slain by me in battle.
Mbh.7.157.8533 The son of Gotama's daughter, then addressing the Panchalas and the Kaikeyas, said unto them, Ye mighty car-warriors, strike ye all at my body.
Mbh.7.157.8537 The Panchalas and the Somakas then, thus worked in battle, abandoned the son of Drona and fled away in all directions.
Mbh.7.157.8538 Beholding those brave warriors, viz, the Panchalas and the Somakas, flying away, Dhrishtadyumna, O king, rushed against Drona's son in that battle.
Mbh.7.157.8570 And that warrior of immeasurable soul then caused the Panchalas in hundreds and thousands, by means of his straight shafts, to fly away.
Mbh.7.157.8572 Slaying a hundred Panchalas with a hundred arrows, and three foremost of men with three keen arrows, in the very sight of Drupada's son and of Phalguna, that mighty car-warrior, viz, the son of Drona, slew a very large number of Panchalas that stayed before him.
Mbh.7.157.8573 The Panchalas then, as also the Srinjayas, thus disconcerted in battle, fled away leaving Drona's son, with their banners torn.
Mbh.7.158.8588 Thus treated by Drona, the Panchalas fled away, from fear, in the very sight to Bhimasena and the high-souled Partha.
Mbh.7.158.8591 The mighty car-warriors among the Srinjayas and the Panchalas, with the Matsyas and the Somakas, O king, followed the two brothers thus engaged in that encounter with Drona.
Mbh.7.160.8661 Drona also on that night, began to consume his foes, the Panchalas SECTION CLXII Sanjaya said, During the progress of that fierce and terrible battle, when the world was enveloped with darkness and dust, O king, the combatants, as they stood on the field, could not see one another.
Mbh.7.161.8728 That mighty and invincible bowman who penetrated into the midst of the Panchalas, that tiger among men endued with great valour, who proceeded, as if dancing, along the track of his car, and consumed large throngs of Panchala cars by means of his shafts like a raging conflagration; alas, how did that Drona meet with his death?
Mbh.7.161.8754 Drona's son covered the, ruler of the Panchalas, and Drona himself covered the Srinjaya, with showers of straight shafts in that battle.
Mbh.7.162.8757 SECTION CLXIV Sanjaya said, During the progress of that terrible nocturnal engagement, O king, which was fraught with an indiscriminate carnage, Dharma's son Yudhishthira, addressed the Pandavas, the Panchalas, and the Somakas.
Mbh.7.162.8759 At the command of the king, O monarch, the Panchalas and the Somakas rushed against Drona alone, uttering terrible shouts.
Mbh.7.162.8773 Dhrishtadyumna, the prince of the Panchalas, cheerfully resisted the great bowman Drona as the latter was engaged in slaughtering the foe.
Mbh.7.163.8837 Beholding Aswatthaman in that plight, the Panchalas and the Srinjayas in that battle uttered leonine roars.
Mbh.7.163.8869 And the Panchalas, the Srinjayas, the Matsyas, the Kaikeyas, and the Chedis, speedily advanced, with all their might against Drona from desire of slaying him.
Mbh.7.164.8894 Having said those words, Karna, that foremost of car-warriors, smilingly proceeded on his car against the troops of the king of the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.164.8897 That mighty car-warrior then quickly ascended the car of Janamejaya, the illustrious prince of the Panchalas
Mbh.7.166.8951 The king of the Panchalas, then, thus pierced through with Vrishasena's arrow, swooned away.
Mbh.7.166.8953 After the retreat, O monarch, of that mighty car-warrior of the Panchalas, the Kaurava army, on that terrible night, rushed furiously against Drupada's troops whose coats of mail had been cut off by means of the arrows of the foe.
Mbh.7.166.8956 Afflicted with the fear of Karna's son, the Panchalas fled away on all sides, like the Danavas from fear of Indra in the great battle of yore between the gods and the Asuras.
Mbh.7.166.8957 Thus afflicted in battle by Vrishasena, the Panchalas and the Somakas, O monarch, illumined by lamps, looked exceedingly beautiful
Mbh.7.167.9012 Beholding that mighty car-warrior, viz, the son of Yajnasena retreating from battle, the Panchalas and the Somakas surrounded him on all sides for rescuing him.
Mbh.7.168.9033 And as Dhrishtadyumna proceeded for accomplishing the destruction of Drona, the Panchalas and the Pandavas, O king, surrounded him.
Mbh.7.168.9036 Then the prince of the Panchalas, O king, quickly pierced Drona in the chest with five arrows and uttered a leonine roar.
Mbh.7.168.9049 Indeed, all those mighty car-warriors quickly pierced the prince of the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.168.9051 The prince of the Panchalas, however, pierced every one of these heroes with three arrows.
Mbh.7.168.9058 With another broad-headed shaft, the prince of the Panchalas then, in that battle, cut off from Drumasena's trunk the latter's head decked with bright ear-rings of gold.
Mbh.7.168.9063 Beholding Karna excited with rage, those heroes, viz, those six bulls among car-warriors, quickly encompassed the prince of the Panchalas from desire of slaying him.
Mbh.7.168.9109 Then Bharadwaja's son, proceeding against the car of Dhrishtadyumna, fought a wonderful and fierce battle at dead of night, O bull of Bharata's race, with the brave Dhrishtadyumna and the Panchalas
Mbh.7.169.9124 Meanwhile, the battle that raged between the Panchalas and all thy troops presented an exceedingly wonderful sight.
Mbh.7.170.9179 We then heard, O monarch, a loud uproar amongst the Panchalas, who called upon one another, while they were being slaughtered by Drona.
Mbh.7.170.9187 Seeing the Panchalas slaughtered and routed, Janardana becoming cheerless, said these words unto Phalguna, Dhrishtadyumna and Satyaki, accompanied by the Panchalas, had proceeded against those great bowmen, viz, Drona and Karna, shooting many shafts.
Mbh.7.171.9208 Then Karna, in that battle, despatched to Yama's abode the driver and the four steeds or Dhrishtadyumna, that foremost warrior among the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.171.9216 Beholding Prishata's son vanquished in battle, those mighty car-warriors, viz, the Panchalas and the Somakas, excited with rage, and taking up all kinds of weapons, proceeded, making death itself their goal, towards Karna, from desire of slaughtering him.
Mbh.7.171.9218 Then Karna of sure aim, contending with vigour, afflicted those mighty car-warriors among the Panchalas with his shafts like a cloud pouring torrents of rain upon a mountain.
Mbh.7.171.9224 Slaughtered by terrible shafts, the Panchalas and the Srinjayas took the motion of even a straw for Karna so great was their fright.
Mbh.7.171.9262 Afflicted at dead of night by the Suta's son with his arrowy showers, the Panchalas are flying away like a herd of deer afflicted by a loin.
Mbh.7.175.9507 They all offered a respectful welcome to Alayudha, During the progress of that terrible and superhuman battle between Karna and the Rakshasa at night, a battle which though fierce was yet delightful to behold, the Panchalas, with all the other Kshatriyas, smilingly looked on as spectators.
Mbh.7.175.9534 The Panchalas and the Srinjayas, the steeds and huge elephants of Bhima's army, exceedingly afflicted by the Rakshasas, became much agitated.
Mbh.7.176.9562 Meanwhile, Karna, O king, in that battle agitated many kings and many mighty car-warriors amongst the Panchalas headed by Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandin and others.
Mbh.7.176.9565 All of them, then, began to fight with Karna, while the Panchalas encountered Drona.
Mbh.7.176.9587 Beholding the gigantic brother of Vaka, that chastiser of foes, thus slain, the Panchalas and the Pandavas began to utter leonine shouts.
Mbh.7.177.9600 Beholding the mighty son of Bhimasena engaged with Alayudha, the mighty-armed Karna rushed against the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.180.9808 We would then lord it over the Pandu's and the Panchalas as if these were our slaves.
Mbh.7.180.9811 The other sons of Pritha are like their branches, while the Panchalas may be called their leaves.
Mbh.7.181.9854 How did they that rushed against Drona, arrayed in order of battle and well-skilled in smiting, viz, the Srinjaya and the Panchalas, fight?
Mbh.7.181.9908 Then the mail-clad Panchalas and the Pandavas headed by Yudhishthira beat their drums and blew their conchs.
Mbh.7.183.10018 Putting forth my prowess in battle and slaying all the Panchalas, I will doff my armour, O king!
Mbh.7.184.10070 The Kuru army having been divided into two bodies, Drona, with Duryodhana before him, proceeded with one of those divisions against the Somakas, the Pandavas, and the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.184.10103 The Panchalas particularly, afflicted with the shafts of Drona, O monarch, though suffering great pain, continued to contend in battle
Mbh.7.184.10118 Upon the fall of Virata and Drupada, and the slaughter of the Kshatriyas, the Chedis, the Matsyas, and the Panchalas, and upon the fall of those three heroes, viz, the three grandsons of Drupada, the high-souled Dhrishtadyumna, beholding those feats of Drona, became filled with rage and grief, and swore in the midst of all the ear-warriors, saying, Let me lose merits of all my religious acts as also my Kshatriya and Brahma energy, if Drona escape me today with life, or if he succeed in vanquishing me
Mbh.7.184.10119 Having taken that oath in the midst of all the bowmen, that slayer of hostile heroes, viz, the prince of the Panchalas, supported by his own division, advanced against Drona.
Mbh.7.184.10120 The Panchalas then began to strike Drona from one side, and Arjuna from another.
Mbh.7.184.10122 Drona being thus protected in battle by those illustrious warriors, the Panchalas though struggling vigorously, could not even gaze at him.
Mbh.7.185.10167 Then the vast host of the Kurus became greatly agitated, and the Panchalas, huddled together, became no longer distinguishable.
Mbh.7.185.10170 Neither the Kauravas, nor the Panchalas, nor the Pandavas, could be distinguished, nor the points of the compass, nor the welkin, nor the earth, nor even land nor uneven land.
Mbh.7.187.10262 Afflicted with those showers of arrows, Duhsasana, O monarch, became unable to stay before the illustrious prince of the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.187.10276 Beholding the invincible prince of the Panchalas proceeding against Drona, and those four heroes of his own army engaged with the twins, Duryodhana, O monarch, rushed to that spot, scattering showers of blood-drinking arrows.
Mbh.7.187.10323 When the engagement became general ant confused, Yudhishthira the son of Dharma, addressing all the foremost of warriors among the Panchalas and the Matsyas, said, They that are our life, they that are our heads, they amongst us that are endued with great strength, those bulls among men are all engaged with the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.7.187.10330 The Panchalas then, from one side, assailed Drona with innumerable arrows, while others headed by Bhimasena began to resist him from another side.
Mbh.7.187.10334 If the preceptor can be derived of his protectors, the Panchalas may then slay him easily'
Mbh.7.187.10335 Thus addressed, Partha suddenly rushed against the Kauravas, while Drona rushed against the Panchalas headed by Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.7.188.10337 SECTION CXCI Sanjaya said, Then Drona caused a great carnage among the Panchalas, like the slaughter caused by Sakra himself in rage amongst the Danavas in the days of yore.
Mbh.7.188.10339 Indeed, O monarch, those mighty car-warriors, viz, the Panchalas and the Srinjayas, all rushed against Drona himself, for fighting with him.
Mbh.7.188.10341 Beholding the slaughter of the Panchalas in that battle by the illustrious Drona, and seeing his, weapons overwhelm all sides, fear entered the hearts of the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.188.10364 Filled with wrath and desirous of compassing the destruction of those brave Panchalas, that mighty car-warrior, that scorcher of foes, viz, Drona, dispelling all those shafts of the Panchalas, then invoked into existence the Brahma weapon.
Mbh.7.188.10367 In that dreadful battle, he felled the heads of the Panchalas and cut off their massive arms, looking like spiked maces and decked with golden ornaments.
Mbh.7.190.10502 Then the mighty Bhima, beholding the illustrious and irresistible prince of the Panchalas carless and weaponless, quickly proceeded towards him.
Mbh.7.191.10605 A fierce battle took place between him and many warriors headed by Sikhandin and the Prabhadrakas, the Panchalas, the Chedis, and the Kaikeyas.
Mbh.7.191.10619 Kripa said, Placing Drona, that foremost of car-warriors, at our head, we commenced to fight with only the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.191.10624 Urged by fate, the Pandavas, the Kaikeyas, the Matsyas, and the Panchalas, O foremast of regenerate ones, approaching Drona's car, began to perish.
Mbh.7.191.10626 Of a dark complexion, with his gray locks hanging down to his ears, and full five and eighty years old, the aged Drona used to careen in battle like a youth of sixteen, When the enemy's troops were thus afflicted and the kings were being slain, the Panchalas, though filled with desire of revenge, turned back from the fight.
Mbh.7.192.10670 Aswatthaman hath been ordained to be the slayer of Dhrishtadyumna, even as Yajnasena's son, the prince of the Panchalas, was ordained to be the slayer of Drona.
Mbh.7.193.10688 I swear by truth, O Kauraveya, as also by my religious acts, that I shall never bear the burden of life if I fail to exterminate the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.193.10689 By every means I contend with the Panchalas in dreadful strife.
Mbh.7.193.10691 Mild or violent, let the means be what they will, I shall effect the destruction of all the Panchalas before peace becomes mine.
Mbh.7.193.10726 With that I will rout and slay the Pandavas, the Panchalas, the Matsyas, and the Kaikeyas, in battle, like Sachi's lord routing and slaying the Asuras.
Mbh.7.193.10732 That wretch amongst the Panchalas, viz, Dhrishtadyumna, who is an injurer of friends and Brahmanas and of his own preceptor, who is a deceitful wretch of the most reprehensible conduct, shall never escape from me today with life'
Mbh.7.194.10780 Since of the prince of the Panchalas seized my preceptor by the hair, Aswatthaman, confident of his own prowess, will never forgive him.
Mbh.7.195.10855 It was for this that I was born as a son to the king of the Panchalas, having sprung from the sacrificial fire.
Mbh.7.196.10907 Having got thee that is condemned by all righteous men, and thy brother, amongst them, the Panchalas have fallen off from righteousness, and stained with meanness, have become haters of friends and preceptors.
Mbh.7.196.10961 Rushing, then, towards the prince of the Panchalas, he said unto him in great wrath, I will not speak harshly to thee, but I will slay thee, deserving as thou art of slaughter'
Mbh.7.196.10965 Then Sahadeva, O king, jumping down from his own car, addressed Satyaki, thus held fast by the strong arms of Bhima, in these words, O tiger among men, O thou of Madhu's race, we have no friends dearer to us than the Andhakas, the Vrishnis and the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.196.10967 The Panchalas, also, O thou of Vrishni's race, even if they search the whole world to the confines of the sea, have no friends dearer to them than the Pandavas and the Vrishnis.
Mbh.7.196.10970 Acquainted as thou art with all duties, remembering now the duties thou owest to friends, restrain this wrath of thine, that has the prince of the Panchalas for its object.
Mbh.7.197.10994 Having mangled all his troops, I shall, then, slay the sinful prince of the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.197.11000 The Pandus and the Panchalas had become fierce in consequence of Drona's slaughter.
Mbh.7.197.11005 Then Drona's son, aiming at the host of the Pandavas and the Panchalas, invoked the weapon called Narayana.
Mbh.7.197.11010 Beholding the welkin densely shrouded with those weapons, O bull of Bharata's race, the Pandavas, the Panchalas, and the Srinjayas, became exceedingly agitated.
Mbh.7.197.11024 Let the wishes of king Duryodhana be crowned with success today, for I have today slain in battle the preceptor, that always cherished such friendly feelings towards us, that preceptor, who, without protecting, caused that child unacquainted with battle, viz, the son of Subhadra, to be slain by a multitude of wicked warriors, that preceptor, who with his son, sat indifferently, without answering, when Krishna in such distress, dragged into the assembly and sought to be made a slave, asked him to say the truth, that preceptor, who, white all the other warriors were fatigued, cased Duryodhana in invulnerable armour when the latter desired to slay Phalguna and who, having cased him so, appointed him to protect Jayadratha, who, being acquainted with the Brahma weapon, scrupled not to exterminate the Panchalas, headed by Satyajit, that had exerted themselves for my victory, that preceptor, who, whilst we were being unrighteously exiled from our kingdom, freely told us to go into the woods although he had been solicited by our friends to withhold his permission.
Mbh.7.198.11083 When, after that weapon had been baffled, the Pandava host, stood arrayed, Duryodhana, O king, addressing Drona's son, said, O Aswatthaman, once more use that weapon speedily since the Panchalas are once more arrayed, desirous of victory'
Mbh.7.198.11131 I swear to thee, O grandson of Sini, by truth and by my ascetic austerities, that I shall know no peace till I slay all the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.198.11202 Beholding Bhimasena borne away from the field, all the Panchalas, inspired with fear, abandoning the car of Dhrishtadyumna, fled away on every side.
Mbh.12.7.232 I think that they among the Panchalas and the Kurus that have fallen in this battle have been lost, otherwise he that has slain would, by that act of his, obtain all regions of bliss
Mbh.12.233.14489 Brahmadatta, the ruler of the Panchalas, possessed of superior intelligence, by giving away two precious jewels called Nidhi and Sankha unto some of the foremost of the Brahmanas, obtained many regions of felicity.
Mbh.14.60.2761 That high-souled hero, always desirous of measuring his strength with Drona, supported by the remnant of the Pandava army, and recollecting the wrongs inflicted by Drona on his sire Drupada, the king of the Panchalas, achieved great feats in battle.
Mbh.15.36.1485 The Panchalas have been wholly exterminated.
