MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.2.277 O best of Brahmanas, according to this calculation were composed the eighteen Akshauhinis of the Kaurava and the Pandava army.
Mbh.1.2.402 Then the slaying by Bhima of the wicked Kichaka who, senseless with lust, had sought Draupadi; the appointment by prince Duryodhana of clever spies; and their despatch to all sides for tracing the Pandavas; the failure of these to discover the mighty sons of Pandu; the first seizure of Virata's kine by the Trigartas and the terrific battle that ensued; the capture of Virata by the enemy and his rescue by Bhimasena; the release also of the kine by the Pandava Bhima; the seizure of Virata's kine again by the Kurus; the defeat in battle of all the Kurus by the single-handed Arjuna; the release of the king's kine; the bestowal by Virata of his daughter Uttara for Arjuna's acceptance on behalf of his son by Subhadra, Abhimanyu, the destroyer of foes.
Mbh.1.2.435 In this the magnanimous Krishna, attentive to the welfare of Yudhishthira, seeing the loss inflicted on the Pandava army, descended swiftly from his chariot himself and ran, with dauntless breast, his driving whip in hand, to effect the death of Bhishma.
Mbh.1.2.485 Pandava then deprived the mighty warrior-in-chariot Aswatthaman, of the jewel on his head, and became exceedingly glad, and, boastful of their success, made a present of it to the sorrowing Draupadi.
Mbh.1.15.1281 Then, after a long space of time, a king descending from the Pandava line celebrated a great sacrifice known as the Snake-sacrifice, After that sacrifice had commenced for the destruction of the snakes, Astika delivered the Nagas, viz, his brothers and maternal uncles and other snakes from a fiery death.
Mbh.1.20.1447 But her sons, the snakes, refusing to do her bidding, she cursed them, saying, During the snake-sacrifice of the wise king Janamejaya of the Pandava race, Agni shall consume you all'
Mbh.1.38.2064 Nor is king Janamejaya of the Pandava race from whom this fear proceedeth, such that he can be hindered.
Mbh.1.42.2242 I go with speed, O amiable one, to cure, without loss of time, the king of immeasurable prowess, the sole representative of the Pandava race, after he is bit by the same Takshaka like to Agni himself in energy'
Mbh.1.43.2270 And that foremost of Munis, viz, Kasyapa, of great prowess and gifted with spiritual knowledge, ascertaining that the period of life of that king of the Pandava race had really run out, returned, receiving from Takshaka as much wealth as he desired.
Mbh.1.53.2651 SECTION LIII Astika Parva continued Saunaka asked, What great Rishis became the Ritwiks at the snake-sacrifice of the wise king Janamejaya of the Pandava line?
Mbh.1.58.2837 Thus the sacrifice of the son of Parikshit, that king of the Pandava race, came to an end.
Mbh.1.60.2890 And accepting those offerings from the Pandava Janamejaya and ordering the kine also not to be slain, Vyasa became much gratified.
Mbh.1.62.2973 Why also did the Pandava Dhananjaya, having Krishna for his charioteer, who by his arrows sent to the other world that dauntless host of fighting men suffer such persecution?
Mbh.1.128.6844 The second Pandava used to seize them by the hair, and throwing them down, to drag them along the earth.
Mbh.1.128.6878 Having made the other youths take exercise in the waters, the powerful second Pandava was excessively fatigued.
Mbh.1.129.6946 Bearing up the lotus-eyed Pandava from under the waters, the Nagas placed him in the selfsame gardens wherein he had been sporting, and vanished in his very sight.
Mbh.1.134.7201 And one day, O grinder of foes, the Kuru and the Pandava princes, with Drona's leave, set out in their cars on a hunting excursion.
Mbh.1.137.7327 This is the middle third Pandava,
Mbh.1.138.7390 And beholding both the warriors with bows strung in their hands the son of Saradwat, viz, Kripa, knowing all duties and cognisant of the rules regulating duels, addressed Karna, saying This Pandava, who is the youngest son of Kunti, belongeth to the Kaurava race: he will engage in combat with thee.
Mbh.1.139.7408 Seeing the charioteer, the Pandava Bhimasena took Karna for a charioteer's son, and said by way of ridicule, O son of a charioteer, thou dost not deserve death in fight at the hands of Partha.
Mbh.1.139.7422 Your own births, ye Pandava princes, are known to me.
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.1.140.7486 The king of the Panchalas, beholding his general thus discomfited in the encounter, himself began to shower his arrows upon the Pandava prince.
Mbh.1.141.7522 And the second Pandava, Vrikodara, began to receive continued lessons from Sankarshana Valarama in encounters with the sword and the mace and on the chariot.
Mbh.1.141.7541 Indeed, Arjuna and the other Pandava princes became so powerful that they slew in battle the great Sauvira who had performed a sacrifice extending over three years, undaunted by the raids of the Gandharvas.
Mbh.1.141.7545 The third of the Pandava princes, assisted by Bhima, on only a single car subjugated all the kings of the East backed by ten thousand cars.
Mbh.1.155.8167 Then the Rakshasa, thus made to feel the weight of Bhima's strength, became very angry and clasping the Pandava, sent forth a terrible yell.
Mbh.1.157.8222 O Pandava, the observance of virtue is a higher duty than the protection of life.
Mbh.1.157.8256 Hidimva sported with the Pandava and studied to make him happy.
Mbh.1.157.8258 Endued with the speed of the mind, she sported with Bhima in all these regions, till in time, she conceived and brought forth a mighty son begotten upon her by the Pandava.
Mbh.1.165.8540 Then that mighty Rakshasa, tearing up many more trees, hurled them at Bhima, and the Pandava also hurled as many at the Rakshasa.
Mbh.1.165.8542 Then the Rakshasa, saying that he was none else than Vaka, sprang upon the Pandava and seized the mighty Bhima with his arms.
Mbh.1.172.8771 Vaisampayana continued, Saying these words, the Pandava wrathfully hurled at the Gandharva that blazing weapon made of fire which burnt the Gandharva's chariot in a trice.
Mbh.1.184.9339 And addressing him, the Pandava also said, O thou best of Gandharvas, let the horses thou givest us remain with thee for a time.
Mbh.1.219.10688 Vasudeva asked Arjuna about his travels, saying, Why, O Pandava art thou wandering over the earth, beholding all the sacred waters and other holy places'
Mbh.1.219.10695 Then the high-souled Pandava, dismissing them all with proper respect, laid himself down on a well-adorned and excellent bed.
Mbh.1.221.10766 That Pandava disregarding us and thee too hath today outraged Subhadra, desiring to compass his own death.
Mbh.1.226.11081 Those who heard the noise that was made while the mighty Pandava strung that bow, quaked with fear.
Mbh.2.24.1074 And the roar of the Pandava mingling with that death knell of Jarasandha, while he was being broken on Bhima's knee, caused a loud uproar that struck fear into the heart of every creature.
Mbh.2.29.1240 And the Pandava then, O king, subjugated in battle those strong and brave heroes of fierce prowess, viz, the heroic and mighty Vasudeva, the king of Pundra and king Mahaujah who reigned in Kausika-kachchha, and then attacked the king of Vanga.
Mbh.2.32.1407 Vaisampayana continued, Endued with speed, these messengers then, thus commanded, invited everybody according to the orders of the Pandava, without losing any time, and brought with them many persons, both friends and strangers.
Mbh.2.44.1820 Hearing these words of their brother, the virtuous Pandava princes followed the kings, one after another as each deserved.
Mbh.2.46.1912 Consumed by the fire of the Pandava, they all forgave that offence; otherwise who is there that could forgive it?
Mbh.2.50.2134 And the kings of the eastern countries having presented numerous valuable articles including many costly carpets and vehicles and beds, and armours of diverse hues decked with jewels and gold and ivory, and weapons of various kinds, and cars of various shapes and handsome make and adorned with gold, with well-trained horses trimmed with tiger skins, and rich and variegated blankets for caprisoning elephants, and various kinds of jewels and gems, arrows long and short and various other kinds of weapons, obtained permission to enter the sacrificial palace of the illustrious Pandava
Mbh.2.57.2364 And, O king, beholding, the handsome Pandava those tigers among men, all the Kurus became exceedingly glad.
Mbh.3.5.351 And, O Pandava, divided thy prosperity with thy adherents, behave truthfully towards them, and converse with them agreeably!
Mbh.3.10.472 Vyasa said, O king, after having seen the Pandava brothers, here cometh the holy Rishi Maitreya, with the desire of seeing us.
Mbh.3.11.577 And thus seized by the mighty Bhima, the fatigued Rakshasa, became faint, and trembling all over, he still pressed the Pandava with all his strength.
Mbh.3.12.641 Vaisampayana continued, Having addressed Krishna thus, the illustrious Pandava, who was the soul of Krishna, became dumb, when Janardana in reply addressed that son of Pritha saying, Thou art mine and I am thine, while all that is mine is thine also!
Mbh.3.145.7404 Thereupon the illustrious and graceful son of the wind-god, the mighty Pandava, depending upon the strength of his arms, began to slay one elephant with another elephant and one lion with another lion while he despatched the others with slaps.
Mbh.3.145.7418 Then the Pandava winded with all his might his loud-blowing shell.
Mbh.3.152.7725 In that lake the son of Kunti saw, the water of ambrosial taste and cool and light and clear and fresh; and the Pandava drank of it profusely.
Mbh.3.153.7747 And, O Pandava, the Gandharvas and the Apsaras also divert themselves in this lake.
Mbh.3.154.7797 I had out of love duly shown unto Bhimasena; and I had also said unto that hero, If thou canst find many of this species, procuring even all of them, do thou return speedily, O Pandava, that mighty armed one, with the view of gratifying my desire, may have gone towards the north-east to bring them'
Mbh.3.157.7927 Having said this, the Pandava summoned the Brahmanas, and the sons of Pritha having gone round the ascetics of rigid austerities and thereby pleased them, informed them of the matter mentioned above.
Mbh.3.159.8066 And that Pandava of the gait of a lion or a bull, and graceful, and generous, and having the splendour of gold, and intelligent, and strong, and proud, and sensitive, and heroic, and having red eyes, and broad shoulders, and gifted with the strength of mad elephants, and having leonine teeth and a broad neck, and tall like a young sala tree, and highsouled, and graceful in every limb, and of neck having the whorls of a shell and mighty-armed, took up his bow plaited at the back with gold, and also his sword.
Mbh.3.159.8069 And free from fear or affliction, the Pandava taking his mace, proceeded to that monarch of mountains causing the delight of Draupadi.
Mbh.3.159.8084 And then all the creatures saw the graceful Pandava densely surrounded by the Rakshasas, like unto the Sun enveloped by clouds.
Mbh.3.159.8092 Having said this unto them that Rakshasa, taking in his hands clubs and javelins and maces, set out and rushed towards the Pandava.
Mbh.3.160.8150 And, O Pandava, be thou not angry with Bhima.
Mbh.3.160.8161 No offence, therefore, in any way, attaches unto thee, O Pandava'
Mbh.3.161.8193 And, O Pandava, Jishnu never committed any shameful act through poverty of spirit.
Mbh.3.162.8215 O Pandava, Indra and Vaisravana preside over this point graced with woods and forests and mountains.
Mbh.3.162.8252 His course is unceasing; he never resteth, O Pandava.
Mbh.3.165.8300 Then unto that strongminded monarch, swimming in felicity, the intelligent lord of the celestials, Purandara, spake, saying, Thou shalt rule the earth, O Pandava, Blessed be thou!
Mbh.3.166.8304 Then smelling the crown of the head of that Pandava, who was thus paying homage, Yudhishthira in accents faltering on account of you, addressed Arjuna, saying O Arjuna, how didst thou pass this period in heaven?
Mbh.3.166.8306 And, O Pandava, has thou adequately secured the weapons?
Mbh.3.166.8324 And, O Pandava, in the third month I totally abstained from food.
Mbh.3.166.8372 O Pandava, my own weapon Raudra shall attend upon thee'
Mbh.3.167.8403 As formerly thou hadst performed thy ablution in the various tirthas and now hast performed severe austerities, so thou wilt be able to repair unto the celestial regions, O Pandava.
Mbh.3.170.8558 And I had also beheld the high and terrific encounter with Virochana's son, and, O Pandava, with Vala, and with Prahrada and with others also.
Mbh.3.174.8707 And, O Janamejaya, the creatures peopling the interior of the earth, on being afflicted, rose and surrounded the Pandava, trembling with joined hands and contorted countenances.
Mbh.3.174.8712 Then, O great king, bearing unearthly variegated blossoms Vayu the Wind-god fell to strewing them around the Pandava.
Mbh.3.174.8718 But if they are not properly kept, they, O Pandava, will become the instrument for the destruction of the three worlds.
Mbh.3.179.8889 Yet, O Pandava, to this day the memory of my former birth hath not forsaken me!
Mbh.3.189.9526 O Pandava, the Brahmanas and Kshatriyas and Vaisyas and Sudras, in the Kali age will practise morality and virtue deceitfully and men in general will deceive their fellows by spreading the net of virtue.
Mbh.3.230.11701 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by the Pandava in that assembly of Rishis, the worshipful Markandeya of high ascetic merit replied, Agneya Son of Agni, Skanda Cast-off, Diptakirti Of blazing fame, Anamaya Always hale, Mayuraketu Peacock-bannered, Dharmatman The virtuous-souled, Bhutesa The lord of all creatures, Mahishardana The slayer of Mahisha, Kamajit The subjugator of desires, Kamada The fulfiller of desires, Kanta The handsome, Satyavak The truthful in speech, Bhuvaneswara The lord of the universe, Sisu The child, Sighra The quick, Suchi The pure, Chanda The fiery, Diptavarna The bright-complexioned, Subhanana Of beautiful face, Amogha Incapable of being baffled, Anagha The sinless, Rudra The terrible, Priya The favourite, Chandranana Of face like the moon, Dipta-sasti The wielder of the blazing lance, Prasantatman Of tranquil soul, Bhadrakrit The doer of good, Kutamahana The chamber of even the wicked, Shashthipriya True favourite of Shashthi, Pavitra The holy, Matrivatsala The reverencer of his mother, Kanya-bhartri The protector of virgins, Vibhakta Diffused over the universe, Swaheya The son of Swaha, Revatisuta The child of Revati, Prabhu The Lord, Neta The leader, Visakha Reared up by Visakha, Naigameya Sprang from the Veda, Suduschara Difficult of propitiation, Suvrata Of excellent vows, Lalita The beautiful, Valakridanaka-priya Fond of toys, Khacharin The ranger of skies, Brahmacharin The chaste, Sura The brave, Saravanodbhava Born in a forest of heath, Viswamitra priya The favourite of Viswamitra, Devasena-priya The lover of Devasena, Vasudeva-priya The beloved of Vasudeva, and Priya-krit The doer of agreeable things, these are the divine names of Kartikeya.
Mbh.3.243.12144 And beholding that mace of his cut into many pieces by Arjuna of great activity, with his arrows, Chitrasena, by means of his science, concealed himself from the view of the Pandava and began to fight with him.
Mbh.3.254.12526 When after the expiration of the thirteenth year, that lord of men, the Pandava, will, in the sacrifice of battle, pour upon the Dhritarashtras, the clarified butter of his ire, then will I come'
Mbh.3.256.12570 Thus accosted by Kunti's son, the illustrious Pandava, those deer, the remnant of those that had been slaughtered, replied unto him, saying, We are, O Bharata, those deer that are still alive after them that had been slaughtered.
Mbh.3.257.12594 And remembering the harsh words of the Suta's son, the Pandava, repressing the venom of his wrath, passed his time in humble guise, sighing heavily.
Mbh.3.258.12642 And, O king, it came to pass that having heard of the virtuous Mudgala observant of vows, the Muni Durvasa, having space alone for his covering his accoutrements worn like that of maniac, and his head bare of hair, came there, uttering, O Pandava various insulting words.
Mbh.3.312.15548 The Lord of justice said, Even by nature, O Pandava, hast thou been endued with these qualities, for thou art the Lord of justice himself!
Mbh.4.18.750 O Pandu's son, that Pandava who was respectfully waited upon in court by kings and sages, behold him now waiting upon another.
Mbh.4.19.800 O Pandava, beholding that foremost of warriors, Sahadeva, engaged in tending kine, and sleeping at night on calf-skins, how can I bear to live?
Mbh.4.20.837 Behold, O Pandava, my plight.
Mbh.4.20.850 I am yet alive, when, O Pandava, I should die'
Mbh.4.22.956 Do thou, O son of Kunti, repair to that dancing-hall, and take the life, O Pandava, of Kichaka, that son of a Suta intoxicated with vanity.
Mbh.4.22.959 O Pandava, afflicted as I am with grief, wipe thou my tears, and blessed be thou, protect thy own honour and that of thy race'
Mbh.4.22.996 For all that, however, he tugged at the Pandava to the best of his power.
Mbh.4.22.999 And thus that powerful Suta and the Pandava, intoxicated with strength and challenging each other, grappled with each other at midnight in that solitary place.
Mbh.4.50.1933 Thou hast cut the mighty root, delicate as the sandal, of the Pandava tree.
Mbh.4.52.2014 With half the troops we will fight the Pandava.
Mbh.4.54.2059 Thus addressed, the son of Virata by means of those large steeds endued with the speed of the wind and furnished with golden armour, broke that array of cars and took the Pandava into the midst of the battle-field.
Mbh.4.59.2313 And as the couple of quivers belonging to the Pandava was inexhaustible, that hero was able to remain on the field immovable as a mountain.
Mbh.4.60.2350 Thereupon, taking out from his quiver another arrow, Karna pierced the Pandava in the hand at which the latter's hold of the bow was loosened.
Mbh.4.63.2484 And the Pandava covered Bhishma, and Bhishma also covered the Pandava, with clouds of shafts.
Mbh.4.68.2674 And unto the king desirous of obtaining his pardon the Pandava replied, O king, I have long ago forgiven it.
Mbh.4.70.2715 SECTION LXX Vaisampayana said, Then, on the third day, attired in white robes after a bath, and decked in ornaments of all kinds, those great car-warriors, the five Pandava brothers, having accomplished their row, and with Yudhishthira at their head, looked resplendent as they entered the palace-gate like five intoxicated elephants.
Mbh.5.3.85 We shall slay Dhritarashtra's son and Sakuni and Karna in battle, and place the Pandava on the throne.
Mbh.5.8.221 And he proceeded by slow marches, giving rest to his troops, towards the place where the Pandava was.
Mbh.5.8.244 And bearing this Duryodhana said, O king, O ruler of the earth, having seen the Pandava, come speedily back.
Mbh.5.19.815 And his soldiers of great valour come from various lands, bore various weapons of war, and heroic in look they beautified the Pandava army.
Mbh.5.22.937 I have heard that Virata, the chief of the Matsyas, with whom the Pandavas had lived for some time and whose wishes were fulfilled by them, old in years, is devoted, along with his sons to the Pandava cause, and hath become an adherent of Yudhishthira.
Mbh.5.22.939 All who are valiant among the lords of the earth have been brought together and are devoted to the Pandava cause.
Mbh.5.22.943 Remarkably heroic and endued with prowess and energy that have no parallel, he is devoted to the Pandava cause.
Mbh.5.22.944 That same Satyaki who, I have heard, obtained weapons from Drona and Arjuna and Krishna and Kripa and Bhishma, and who is said to be equal to the son of Krishna, is devotedly attached to the Pandava cause.
Mbh.5.27.1118 SECTION XXVII Sanjaya said, O Pandava, the world hath heard thy conduct being righteous.
Mbh.5.27.1122 Since this mortal existence is for only a short period, and greatly liable to blame, subject to constant suffering, and unstable, and since it is never comparable to a good name, therefore, O Pandava, never perpetrate a sin.
Mbh.5.27.1152 O Pandava, why have you allowed your foes to grow so powerful?
Mbh.5.29.1293 If without injury to the Pandava cause I succeed in bringing about this peace with the Kurus, an act of religious merit, resulting in very great blessings, will then have been done by me; and the Kurus also will have been extricated from the meshes of death.
Mbh.5.48.2680 When Dhritarashtra's son will behold Bhimasena, that wrathful Pandava of terrific impetus, stationed on his car, mace in hand, vomiting the venom of his wrath, then will Duryodhana repent for this war.
Mbh.5.48.2704 Indeed, when the leader of the Pandava host, of immeasurable prowess and capable of withstanding the rush of any force, will proceed to attack Drona in battle, crushing with his arrows the Dhritarashtra ranks, then will Duryodhana repent for this war.
Mbh.5.50.2844 SECTION L Dhritarashtra said, What did that Pandava king, the son of Dharma, say, O Sanjaya, after hearing that a large force hath been assembled here for gladdening us?
Mbh.5.50.2865 That wonderful warrior Nakula, who vanquished the whole of the western world teeming with Mlechchas, is present in the Pandava camp.
Mbh.5.53.2986 What fool, doomed to destruction and deprived of sense, will jump, moth-like, into that blazing and irresistible Pandava fire!
Mbh.5.57.3168 Thus hath the Pandava host been distributed into divisions.
Mbh.5.72.3531 SECTION LXXII Bhagwat Yana Parva Janamejaya said, When good Sanjaya leaving the Pandava camp went back to the Kurus, what did my grandsires, the sons of Pandu, then do?
Mbh.5.77.3808 When the morrow comes, I will go, O Pandava, to Dhritarashtra's presence.
Mbh.5.139.6237 I have a large force, with this conviction thou desirest to pierce the Pandava host, abounding with heroes, like the current of the Ganga piercing the ocean abounding with sharks and alligators and makaras.
Mbh.5.152.6821 And hearing the blare of the conch called Panchajanya, which resembled the roll of the thunder, all the warriors of the Pandava army were filled with joy.
Mbh.5.155.6887 And the word of command having been passed, a great uproar rose amongst the Pandava army and all the soldiers were filled with joy.
Mbh.5.156.6926 Of this, the Pandava force consisted of seven Akshauhinis, while the Kaurava force consisted of ten Akshauhinis and one more.
Mbh.5.158.6995 And beholding that a very destructive battle was about to take place, there came, O king, into the Pandava encampment, Halayudha, accompanied by Akrura, and Gada and Samva, and Uddhava, and Rukmini's son Pradyumna, and Ahuka's sons, and Charudeshna, and others.
Mbh.5.158.6999 And the Pandava king touched Rama's hands with his own.
Mbh.5.159.7020 SECTION CLIX Vaisampayana said, About this time, there came into the Pandava camp Bhishmaka's son, foremost among all persons of truthful resolution, and known widely by the name of Rukmi.
Mbh.5.159.7039 Endued with great energy, that hero, cased in mail and armed with bows, fences, swords and quivers, quickly entered the Pandava camp, surrounded by an Akshauhini of troops.
Mbh.5.160.7068 Dhritarashtra said, Come, O Sanjaya, tell me with the fullest details all that hath happened in the encampment of the Kuru and the Pandava troops.
Mbh.5.162.7264 SECTION CLXII Sanjaya said, Having reached the Pandava camp, the gambler's son Uluka presented himself before the Pandavas, and addressing Yudhishthira said, Thou art fully conversant with what envoys say!
Mbh.5.162.7277 Though weak, Bhima yet, O Pandava, made a vow!
Mbh.5.166.7530 He will encounter in battle the Maharathas of the Pandava party, flooding the enemy with his arrows resembling the very surges of the sea.
Mbh.5.168.7587 The Pandava army will play the part of the dry grass and fuel in which that fire will originate, while the impetus of his own weapons will be the wind for fanning it into a mighty flame.
Mbh.5.168.7622 Then Bhagadatta, O son of Gandhari, who regarded Indra as his friend, made friendship with Indra's son the high-souled Pandava.
Mbh.5.173.7786 These, O king, are principally the Rathas, Atirathas, and half Rathas of the high-souled Pandava, and these, O king, will lead in battle the terrible army of Yudhishthira which is protected, again, by that hero, the diadem-decked Arjuna, who is even like the great Indra himself.
Mbh.5.196.8781 I can annihilate the Pandava army, O blessed monarch, taking every morning ten thousand ordinary warriors and one thousand car-warriors as my share from day to day.
Mbh.5.196.8790 Dron's son Aswatthaman pledged himself to annihilate the Pandava army in ten nights, Karna, however, acquainted as he was with weapons of high efficacy, pledged himself to achieve that feat in five days.
Mbh.5.199.8871 Besides those already named, other men by hundreds and thousands and tens of thousands, in divisions numbering by thousands, followed the Pandava army, roaring loudly.
Mbh.6.20.944 SECTION XX Dhritarashtra said, When the Sun rose, O Sanjaya, of my army led by Bhishma and the Pandava army led by Bhima, which first cheerfully approached the other, desirous of fight?
Mbh.6.22.999 In the centre of the Pandava army was Sikhandin and his troops, protected by Arjuna.
Mbh.6.22.1001 The southern division of the Pandava army was protected.
Mbh.6.22.1009 For crushing thy sons' troops he who assumeth the most awful form, who, divested of weapons, with only his bare hands, poundeth to dust men, horses, and elephants, that strong-armed Bhimasena, otherwise called Vrikodara, accompanied by the twins, became the protector of the heroic car-warriors of the Pandava army.
Mbh.6.23.1038 The goddess said, Within a short time thou shalt conquer thy foes, O Pandava.
Mbh.6.43.1993 Thither where Krishna, the Lord of Yoga is, thither where the great bowman Partha is, thither, in my opinion, are prosperity, and victory, and greatness, and eternal justice End of the Bhagavad Gita SECTION XLIII Sanjaya said, Beholding Dhananjaya then to take up once again his arrows and Gandiva, the mighty car-warriors of the Pandava party uttered a tremendous shout.
Mbh.6.47.2344 O bull of Bharata's race, that great car-warrior penetrated the Pandava host.
Mbh.6.47.2409 And beholding that generalissimo of the Pandava forces proceeding quickly towards Salya's car, a loud uproar of oh and alas arose in thy army, O Bharata.
Mbh.6.48.2458 Devoted to the welfare of Duryodhana, he began to consume the Pandava warrior.
Mbh.6.48.2459 Reckless of his very life which is difficult of being cast off, and abandoning all fear he slaughtered, O king, the Pandava army in that fierce conflict
Mbh.6.48.2465 In one single day Bhishma, infuriate with anger, could consume the Pandava army with his arrows, if Sweta did not protect it.
Mbh.6.48.2467 Duryodhana then, with wrath excited and surrounded by many kings, rushed with his troops against the Pandava host in battle.
Mbh.6.48.2489 Then the commander of the Pandava army, with wrath excited, pierced Bhishma in that encounter O king, with a great many shafts in the very sight of all.
Mbh.6.48.2515 And beholding that foremost of car-warriors, Sweta become a combatant on foot, many mighty car-warriors of the Pandava side rushed unitedly to his rescue.
Mbh.6.48.2518 And when all the high-souled warriors of the Pandava side were thus held in check, Sweta, taking up a sword cut off Bhishma's bow.
Mbh.6.48.2531 And all the mighty car-warriors of the Kshatriya race belonging to the Pandava side indulged in lamentations.
Mbh.6.48.2534 And when that great bowman was slain by Bhishma, that ornament of battle, the mighty bowmen of the Pandava side with Sikhandin at their head, trembled in fear.
Mbh.6.49.2576 And beholding that mighty car-warrior and great bowman thus rushing, the Pandava host began to tremble like a boat tossed by a violence of the tempest.
Mbh.6.49.2591 And afflicted with fear, the Pandava host cast its eyes around, and not beholding any protector, looked like a herd of kine afflicted by cold.
Mbh.6.49.2594 And creating continuous lines of arrows in all directions, that hero of rigid vows slew Pandava car-warriors, naming each, O Bharata, beforehand.
Mbh.6.50.2634 As Kartikeya, in days of old, was ever the commander of the celestial host, so also art thou, O bull among men, the commander of the Pandava host.
Mbh.6.50.2639 When that foremost of princes, that slayer of foes, the son of Prishata, said this defiantly, the Pandava warriors, endued with great energy and incapable of being defeated in battle, all set up a loud shout.
Mbh.6.51.2664 And then king Duryodhana, united with all his brothers, with the Aswalakas, the Vikarnas, the Vamanas, the Kosalas, the Daradas, the Vrikas, as also the Kshudrakas and the Malavas advanced cheerfully against the Pandava host.
Mbh.6.54.2824 And the ruler of the Kalingas also, excited with wrath, and rubbing his bowstring, and taking up a terrible arrow deadly as poison of the snake, shot it at Bhimasena, desirous at that monarch was of slaying the Pandava.
Mbh.6.54.2890 When, however, they were rallied again, the commander of the Pandava army Dhrishtadyumna, O Bharata, ordered his own troops, saying, Fight.
Mbh.6.54.2891 Hearing the words of their commander, many leaders of the Pandava army headed by Sikhandin approached Bhima, supported by many car-divisions accomplished in smiting.
Mbh.6.57.2998 of winning blazing glory and bent upon making death the only ground for a cessation of the fight, with minds undirected to anything else, they broke the Pandava ranks in many places and were also themselves broken.
Mbh.6.57.2999 Then both the Pandava and the Kaurava troops broke, changed positions, and fled away.
Mbh.6.57.3005 And so the formidable array of the Pandava also, protected by Savyasachin, and well-guarded by Bhima, could not be broken.
Mbh.6.59.3105 And shooting continuous line of arrows in all directions, that hero of rigid vows smote the Pandava car-warriors naming each beforehand, O Bharata.
Mbh.6.59.3122 And although the heroic leaders of the Pandava army made great efforts, yet they could not check the flight of even the great car-warriors of their side afflicted with the shafts of Bhishma.
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.6.61.3312 And that division of the Pandava army, protected by that renowned and firm bowman, and consisting of cars, elephants, and cavalry, looked resplendent as it advanced for the encounter.
Mbh.6.61.3328 And all the kings of both the Kuru and the Pandava armies beheld those two princes and foremost of car-warriors engaged in battle.
Mbh.6.62.3373 And those Pandava warriors struck off the heads of their foes battling from the backs of elephants, with well-tempered and keen-edged shafts of diverse forms
Mbh.6.64.3445 Beholding Bhima thus unmanned, the illustrious and mighty car-warriors of the Pandava army, headed by Abhimanyu could not bear it.
Mbh.6.64.3465 Those mighty car-warriors, however, of the Pandava army, relying on the prowess of their own arms, could not bear that shrouding of Bhima with the arrowy showers of Bhagadatta.
Mbh.6.65.3518 The combatants of the Pandava army are encountering and smiting those best of warriors having Bhishma for their head, those heroes conversant with every weapon.
Mbh.6.65.3559 Even all the warriors of the Pandava army united together cannot bear your prowess.
Mbh.6.69.3751 And when the combatants of the Pandava army were thus confounded, Dhananjaya, speedily proceeding, pierced Bhishma at the van of battle with a thousand arrows.
Mbh.6.69.3755 Thus addressed in battle by thy son, Drona penetrated into the Pandava array in the very sight of Satyaki.
Mbh.6.70.3769 And the battle that then took place between the kings of the Kaurava and the Pandava armies was awful in the extreme and destructive of great heroes.
Mbh.6.70.3791 And other heroic warriors of thy army, engaged with the combatants of the Pandava host, fought on slaying one another with clenched fists and knees, and slaps and blows, O king.
Mbh.6.70.3794 And so the Pandava combatants also, supporting Vrikodara, and owning fleet animals, rushed, excited with rage, against Bhishma
Mbh.6.72.3848 And that mighty car-warrior Dhrishtadyumna, that generalissimo of the Pandava forces of immeasurable soul, engaged in battle, O king, with Drona of fierce achievements.
Mbh.6.72.3868 And exclamation of oh and alas arose from the high-souled warriors of the Pandava army.
Mbh.6.72.3871 Meanwhile, Bhishma the son of Santanu began to slay the Pandava forces like Indra slaying the Danavas.
Mbh.6.72.3873 And other warriors of the Pandava army, headed by Dhrishtadyumna, and desirous of slaughtering the ranks of thy son, rushed towards Santanu's son in that battle.
Mbh.6.73.3919 And the mighty bowmen of thy army and the great car-warriors of the Pandava host, prepared to lay down their lives in battle, slew one another.
Mbh.6.75.3972 Then thy sire Devavrata, beholding the Pandava army thus arrayed, disposed his army, O king, in counter-array after the form of a huge crane.
Mbh.6.75.3989 And the Pandava army, protected by Bhimasena and Arjuna and the twins, looked beautiful like the night decorated with stars.
Mbh.6.75.3994 Thereupon the son of Bharadwaja, endued with great prowess, himself restraining his steeds, began to consume the Pandava army like fire consuming a heap of cotton.
Mbh.6.77.4113 Then Drona caused the Pandava army consisting of cars, elephants, and steeds, to tremble, in the very sight of Bhimasena and the intelligent son of Prishata.
Mbh.6.77.4116 And beholding the Pandava army in that condition, thy troops were filled with delight.
Mbh.6.79.4147 And the mighty Bhishma also, in that battle, O king, afflicted the Pandava army like a herdsman belabouring his herd.
Mbh.6.80.4192 And when these invincible warriors upon their own cars came upon those combatants of the Pandava army resplendent like so many suns and staying on their cars both began to pierce one another.
Mbh.6.83.4362 Then the commander of the Pandava army, O Bharata, excited with wrath cut off his bow.
Mbh.6.84.4410 As the chief of the celestials, excited with wrath, had inspired the Danavas with fear, so did Bhagadatta, O king, frightened the Pandava warriors.
Mbh.6.84.4411 And the warriors of the Pandava army, frightened by him on all sides, failed, O Bharata, to find among their ranks any protector.
Mbh.6.86.4513 Then the Pandava warrior headed by Sikhandin, beholding those combatants advancing upon Dhananjaya that foremost of all conversant with arms, proceeded with whetted weapons in hand, desirous of protecting the car of Arjuna.
Mbh.6.88.4651 And the warriors of the Kaurava and the Pandava hosts, coming upon one another in that conflict, despatched one another with diverse kinds of shafts to the abode of Yama.
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.6.90.4724 Then all the troops of the Pandava army, excited with rage, rushed, at the command of Dharma's son, against Bhishma alone from desire of slaying him.
Mbh.6.90.4750 And it was thus, O Bharata, that the Pandava host suffered destruction when Bhishma the son of Santanu, and Drona that foremost of car-warriors, and Aswatthaman, and Kripa, and Kritavarman, were inflamed with wrath.
Mbh.6.90.4751 And similarly thy army also suffered the same kind of destruction when the other side, viz, the Pandava heroes were excited with rage
Mbh.6.91.4753 And so also, O monarch, Hridika's son of the Satwata race, that slayer of hostile heroes, rushed in that battle against the Pandava ranks.
Mbh.6.91.4754 And smiling the while, several warriors on thy side, with a large number of steeds consisting of the best of the Kamvoja breed as also of those born in the country of the Rivers, and of those belonging to Aratta and Mahi and Sindhu, and of those of Vanayu also that were white in hue, and lastly those of hilly countries, surrounded the Pandava army
Mbh.6.91.4843 The mighty Bhishma also, with shafts capable of penetrating into the very vitals, slew many mighty car-warriors and caused the Pandava army to tremble the while.
Mbh.6.95.4991 Then many mighty car-warriors of the Pandava army, headed by Abhimanyu and with wrath generated in their bosoms, rushed at the king shouting loudly.
Mbh.6.95.4994 These mighty car-warriors of the Pandava army, these great bowmen, placing Bhimasena at their head, are rushing towards Duryodhana, shooting and hurling diverse kinds of weapons, resolved upon winning success, uttering terrible shouts, and frightening the kings on your side.
Mbh.6.95.4995 Hearing these words of the preceptor, many warriors of thy side headed by Somadatta rushed upon the Pandava ranks.
Mbh.6.95.5008 Beholding that mighty car-warrior thus afflicted and placed in a situation of great peril, many mighty car-warriors of the Pandava army, headed by Abhimanyu, and prepared to lay down dear life itself, rushed to the spot, desirous of rescuing him.
Mbh.6.96.5040 O tiger among the Bharatas, though thus situated, yet have I been defeated into battle by the Pandava warriors headed by Bhimasena relying upon Ghatotkacha.
Mbh.6.96.5057 Beholding him advance towards them like a mass of roaring clouds, many mighty car-warriors of the Pandava army proceeded against him, inflamed with wrath.
Mbh.6.96.5073 Beholding that elephant advancing, the mighty car-warriors of the Pandava army, placing Bhimasena at their head, themselves rushed towards it.
Mbh.6.96.5080 Beholding that elephant of the high souled king of the Dasarnas thus resisted, even the Pandava troops, applauding, cried out Excellent, excellent'
Mbh.6.96.5084 And it fled away with great swiftness, uttering frightful shrieks, and crushing the Pandava ranks like the tempest crushing trees with its violence.
Mbh.6.96.5085 After that elephant was thus vanquished, the mighty car-warriors of the Pandava army, uttering loud leonine shouts, approached for battle.
Mbh.6.96.5092 Beholding, then the Pandava array broken by the intelligent Bhagadatta, Ghatotkacha, of fierce mien, O king, with blazing face and eyes red as fire, filled with rage, rushed towards him.
Mbh.6.96.5103 And the Pandava warriors also, headed by Bhimasena, filled the earth with cries of Excellent, Excellent.
Mbh.6.96.5105 Drawing his large bow whose effulgence resembled that of Indra's bolt, he roared with great energy at the mighty car-warriors of the Pandava army, shooting at the same time many bright arrows of great sharpness and possessed of the effulgence of fire.
Mbh.6.96.5121 Bhagadatta also, upon that elephant of his, O Bharata, crushing the Pandava ranks, rushed towards Yudhishthira.
Mbh.6.101.5396 Indeed, the Rakshasa rushed in battle against that mighty Pandava host which he began to slaughter, like Vala rushing against the celestial host.
Mbh.6.101.5399 Thus slaughtered by that Rakshasa of terrible visage, the Pandava army fled away from excess of fear.
Mbh.6.104.5541 And so all the warriors of thy army also, O king, prepared to protect Bhishma, rushed at the head of their troops against the Pandava host.
Mbh.6.105.5593 Then the palmyra-bannered hero covered the Pandava army, in that battle, with his straight shafts.
Mbh.6.105.5614 Then the Pandava warriors, O elder brother of Pandu, with their cars, elephants, and steeds surrounded Bhishma in that battle, for the sake of rescuing him of Madhu's race.
Mbh.6.106.5629 And in consequence of those impetuous steeds, the Pandava army was agitated like a large lake with a flight of swans suddenly alighting on its bosom.
Mbh.6.107.5679 And elephants, O king, destitute of riders, and slain horsemen of the Pandava army, lay dead.
Mbh.6.107.5685 Indeed, the Pandava troops looked like bulls running wild in fear, and no longer restrained by the yoke.
Mbh.6.107.5687 Then that delighter of the Yadavas, beholding the Pandava army breaking, reined the excellent car that he guided, and addressing Vibhatsu the son of Pritha, said, That hour is come, O Partha, which thou hadst hoped for.
Mbh.6.107.5738 As the Pandavas had been breaking the ranks of the Kurus in battle, so thy sire broke the Pandava ranks in battle.
Mbh.6.107.5741 And the Pandava troops, thus fleeing away, O Bharata, failed to find a protector, like a herd of kine sunk in a shoal of ants while being trod down by a strong person.
Mbh.6.107.5742 Indeed, the Pandavas could not, O Bharata, look at that mighty car-warrior incapable of being shaken, who, furnished with a profusion of shafts, was scorching the kings in the Pandava army, and who in consequence of those shafts looked like the blazing Sun shedding his fiery rays.
Mbh.6.107.5743 And while he was thus grinding the Pandava army, the thousand-rayed maker of day repaired to the setting hills, and the troops, worn with fatigue, set their hearts on withdrawal from the field
Mbh.6.109.5919 And the five Kaikeya brothers and the valiant Dhrishtaketu, O Bharata, protected the rear of the Pandava army.
Mbh.6.109.5945 And the Pandava warriors all rushed together upon Bhishma singly, upon that mighty car-warrior struggling in battle with great activity, like the Asuras rushing together upon him with the thunderbolt in hand.
Mbh.6.110.6007 Having said these words, O chief of the Bharatas, that invincible warrior, scattering his shafts among the Kshatriyas, attacked the Pandava host.
Mbh.6.111.6024 As regards thy warriors O king, that rushed, according to the measure of their might and courage, against those mighty car-warriors of the Pandava army united together, listen to me as I speak of them unto thee.
Mbh.6.111.6034 And Bharadwaja's son, exerting himself with vigour in battle, resisted the eldest Pandava, that is to say, king Yudhishthira the just, who was desirous of Bhishma's death.
Mbh.6.111.6043 Hearing these words of their commander, the mighty car-warriors of the Pandava army, filled with joy, rushed towards the car of Ganga's son.
Mbh.6.112.6135 The army of thy son, O Bharata, undergoing such slaughter, began to be agitated here and there by many foremost car-warriors of the Pandava
Mbh.6.113.6136 SECTION CXIII Sanjaya said, The heroic Drona, that great bowman endued with the prowess of an infuriate elephant, that foremost of men possessed of great might, taking up his large bow which was capable of checking even an infuriate elephant, and shaking it in his hands, was engaged in afflicting the Pandava ranks, having penetrated into their midst.
Mbh.6.113.6184 Dark as the younger brother of Indra, and risen like a tall Sala, behold Abhimanyu advancing at the head of the Pandava host, like a second Phalguna!
Mbh.6.114.6196 The brave Pandava, that slayer of hostile heroes, pierced Salya with seven arrows, and Kritavarman with eight.
Mbh.6.115.6278 At this, the heroic warriors of the Pandava army, and Dhrishtadyumna the son of Prishata, rushed in battle against Bhishma who was advancing like Death himself with wide-open mouth.
Mbh.6.116.6298 Scorching the Pandava army for ten days, Bhishma of virtuous soul, gave up all desire of protecting his life.
Mbh.6.118.6444 As a fire fiercely blazeth forth with bright flames when fed with fuel, so did thy son blaze forth, consuming the Pandava host.
Mbh.6.118.6445 And no car-warrior, O Bharata, of the Pandava host ventured to vanquish or even proceed against that warrior of gigantic proportions, save Indra's son Arjuna owning white steeds and having Krishna for his charioteer.
Mbh.6.119.6504 Then Salya and Kripa, and Chitrasena, O Bharata, and Dussasana, and Vikarna, those heroes mounted on their bright cars, caused the Pandava host to tremble.
Mbh.6.119.6505 Slaughtered in battle by those high-souled warriors, the Pandava army began to reel in diverse ways, O king, like a boat on the waters tossed by the wind.
Mbh.6.119.6514 Then the generalissimo of the Pandava army, viz, the mighty car-warrior Dhrishtadyumna, addressing his soldiers, said, Ye Somakas, accompanied by the Srinjayas, rush ye at Ganga's son'
Mbh.6.119.6524 Besides these, all the Kshatriyas of the Pandava army who followed Dhananjaya, as soon as they approached Bhishma, had to go to Yama's abode.
Mbh.6.119.6525 Covering the Pandava host from every side with showers of arrows, Bhishma stayed in battle at the head of the Kaurava army.
Mbh.6.119.6527 As Sakra scorched the Daitya host in battle, even so, O Bharata, did Bhishma scorch the Pandava host.
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.6.119.6540 Disregarding all those shafts, large in number, shot by those foremost of princes belonging to the Pandava host, Bhishma of undepressed soul penetrated into the Pandava ranks.
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.6.120.6558 He then pierced the six Pandava warriors, viz, Satyaki, and Bhima, and Dhananjaya the son of Pandu, and Drupada, and Virata, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, with many excellent arrows of great sharpness and dreadful whizz and exceeding impetuosity, and capable of piercing through every kind of armour.
Mbh.6.120.6566 Hearing that furious uproar, the mighty car-warriors of the Pandava army rushed forward, O bull of Bharata's race, for protecting Arjuna.
Mbh.6.120.6634 Then arose from among the Pandava host a loud shout.
Mbh.7.2.76 The Pandava host, therefore, is not capable of being easily defeated by the very celestials.
Mbh.7.7.258 And the mighty Drona coursed through the Pandava force like a circle of fire.
Mbh.7.8.265 Beholding then that host protected in that battle by those Pandava warriors, Bharadwaja's son, turning his eyes in wrath, cast his looks upon it.
Mbh.7.8.266 Inflamed with rage, that warrior, invincible in battle, consumed, as he stood upon his car, the Pandava host like the tempest destroying vast masses of clouds.
Mbh.7.8.290 That hero possessed of golden car, that grinder of hostile hosts, having achieved mighty feats and slain in thousands the warriors of the Pandava host in battle, hath at last been himself slain by Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.7.9.319 Mounted on his own excellent car decked with pure gold, why, O son, could he not cross the sea of the Pandava army?
Mbh.7.9.323 Did the Pandava fly away beholding him of the golden car and of mighty strength who invoked into existence celestial weapons?
Mbh.7.11.424 Gada, and Samva, and Pradyumna, and Viduratha, and Charudeshna, and Sarana, and Ulmukha, and Nisatha, and the valiant Jhilivabhru, and Prithu, and Viprithu, and Samika, and Arimejaya, these and other mighty Vrishni heroes, accomplished in smiting, will, standing on the field of battle, take up their position in the Pandava host, when summoned by that Vrishni hero, viz, the high-souled Kesava.
Mbh.7.12.482 Drona said, If the heroic Arjuna do not protect Yudhishthira in battle, thou mayst think the eldest Pandava as already brought under thy control.
Mbh.7.12.499 Then, O chastiser of foes, the fact of Drona's having promised to seize the eldest Pandava was proclaimed by Duryodhana unto all his troops
Mbh.7.13.518 Sanjaya continued, Then, O king, conchs and drums and cymbals and smaller drums were sounded and beaten in the Pandava camp.
Mbh.7.13.526 And so also the mighty car-warriors of thy son, skilled in smiting, could not beat the Pandava host, as it was protected by the Diadem-decked Arjuna.
Mbh.7.13.535 And covering and obstructing all the points of the compass by means of his straight shafts, he began to crush the Pandava force even there, where Prishata's son was
Mbh.7.14.536 SECTION XIV Sanjaya said, Then Drona, causing a great confusion in the Pandava host, careered through it, like a conflagration consuming a forest of trees.
Mbh.7.14.574 And when Drona was thus grinding the hostile army hither and thither, the Pandava warriors headed by Yudhishthira rushed at that mighty car-warrior from all sides.
Mbh.7.15.674 And loud cries of Bravo, Bravo' arose among hundreds of Pandava and Kaurava warriors rushing towards each other.
Mbh.7.16.707 Beholding that single warrior coursing fearlessly on the field, all the kings of the Pandava army uniting together, surrounded him on all sides.
Mbh.7.16.722 Then he Drona owning red steeds, excited with wrath and resembling a fierce elephant with four tusks, penetrated into the Pandava host and rushed against Yudhishthira.
Mbh.7.16.729 And then penetrating into the midst of the Pandava host and careering in all directions, that bull among men, Bharadwaja's son, became the protector of thy troops.
Mbh.7.17.762 Meanwhile, when Arjuna will not be by, O monarch, I will seize king Yudhishthira the just, penetrating through the Pandava host in the very sight of Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.7.17.765 That feat will be more advantageous than victory over the Pandava army'
Mbh.7.21.984 Then Satanika, the younger brother of the ruler of the Matsyas, rushed at Drona who was thus engaged in incessantly destroying those divisions of the Pandava host.
Mbh.7.21.998 The slaughter that Drona caused among the Pandava troops was very great, resembling that caused by Vishnu himself, the adored of both the gods and Asuras, among the Daitya host.
Mbh.7.21.1020 Then many Pandava warriors, headed by Kunti's son, rushing at Drona, that mighty car-warrior consuming their divisions like Death himself, surrounded him on all sides.
Mbh.7.22.1079 The noise there was deafening, of Pandava warriors returned to the fight on their cars drawn by excellent steeds of diverse hue all actuated by the desire of slaying Drona alone
Mbh.7.23.1122 That Panchala who was commander of the Pandava army and who took Drona as the victim allotted to his share, that Dhrishtadyumna, was borne by steeds of the hue of pigeons.
Mbh.7.23.1228 Re-ascending then upon his own car, and taking up another bow, and guiding his steeds himself, he began, O monarch, to consume the Pandava host.
Mbh.7.23.1229 Vrishasena the son of Karna, competent for the feat, resisted with showers of arrows king Pandava who was rushing to battle like Indra himself following the Asuras for smiting them.
Mbh.7.24.1273 The Pandava host, frightened by that elephant, suddenly fled away, O king, to where Vrikodara was waiting.
Mbh.7.24.1294 And while the Pandava troops were thus destroyed by Bhagadatta, Bhima, excited with rage, once more rushed against the ruler of the Pragjyotisha.
Mbh.7.24.1303 Then the Pandava warriors, desirous of slaying that prince of elephants, uttered loud shouts and covered it quickly with showers of arrows.
Mbh.7.24.1309 Like a cowherd belabouring his cattle in the forest with a goad, Bhagadatta repeatedly smote the Pandava host.
Mbh.7.24.1310 Like the cawing of quickly retreating crows when assailed by hawks, a loud and confused noise was heard among the Pandava troops who fled away with great speed.
Mbh.7.25.1323 Capable of bearing every weapon and even the touch of fire, it will, O sinless one, alone destroy the Pandava force today.
Mbh.7.25.1327 At these words of Arjuna, Krishna began to proceed to the place where Bhagadatta was breaking the Pandava ranks.
Mbh.7.25.1329 Beholding the Pandava host broken by Bhagadatta, and summoned on the other hand by the Samsaptakas, Arjuna's heart was divided in twain.
Mbh.7.27.1403 Thus addressed by him, Bhagadatta became filled with rage, and taking up a bright bow showered upon both the Pandava and Govinda his arrowy down-pours.
Mbh.7.29.1501 In that dreadful pass, they fearlessly followed their commander, achieving meritorious feats against the Pandava troops with weapons upraised, and Yudhishthira within accessible distance
Mbh.7.29.1502 Taking advantage of an error of Bhimasena of great energy and of heroic Satyaki and Dhrishtadyumna, O monarch, the Kuru leaders fell upon the Pandava Army
Mbh.7.29.1516 The awful noise made by the Kuru army agitated and tossed by the foe, paralysing the very welkin, penetrated into the midst of even the Pandava host.
Mbh.7.29.1517 Then Drona, coming upon the Pandava divisions by thousands, and careering over the field, broke them by means of his whetted shafts.
Mbh.7.29.1518 When these were being thus crushed by Drona of wonderful achievements, Dhrishtadyumna, the generalissimo of the Pandava host, filled with rage himself checked Drona.
Mbh.7.29.1529 The Pandava host then, filled with great grief, began to tremble, when the Preceptor's son thus slew Nila of blazing energy.
Mbh.7.30.1591 Then the commander of the Pandava forces saying, This is the time' speedily led the Pandavas on those heroes that are always endued with great activity.
Mbh.7.30.1598 Meanwhile, Jishnu, having vanquished large number of Samsaptakas, quickly came to that place where Drona was grinding the Pandava troops.
Mbh.7.41.2018 And piercing Yudhishthira then with seventy arrows, the ruler of the Sindhus pierced the other heroes of the Pandava army with thick showers of shafts.
Mbh.7.47.2238 Indeed, O monarch, thy troops were in transports of joy, while tears fell fast from the eyes of the Pandava heroes.
Mbh.7.47.2247 When youthful Abhimanyu, yet in his minority, fell, the Pandava divisions, O king, fled away in the very sight of king Yudhishthira.
Mbh.7.49.2278 SECTION XLIX Sanjaya said, After the slaughter of that hero, that leader of car-divisions, viz, the son of Subhadra, the Pandava warriors, leaving their cars and putting off their armour, and throwing aside their Lows, sat, surrounding king Yudhishthira.
Mbh.7.70.3000 Having achieved feats exceedingly difficult of accomplishment, Vasudeva and Arjuna, at last, reached the Pandava encampment.
Mbh.7.71.3138 Indeed after the high-souled Arjuna had taken the oath, the sound of thousands of musical instruments and loud leonine roars arose from the Pandava camp.
Mbh.7.77.3351 There was none in the Pandava camp who slept that night.
Mbh.7.77.3353 And everybody in the Pandava camp thought of this, viz, The high-souled wielder of Gandiva, burning with grief for the death of his son, hath suddenly vowed the slaughter of the Sindhus.
Mbh.7.92.4225 Like an awful hurricane in summer agitating the ocean, that best of Brahmanas, viz, Drona, agitating the Pandava host.
Mbh.7.92.4245 There then was no warrior in the Pandava army who was capable of bearing, O lord, the arrows shot from the bow of Drona.
Mbh.7.92.4246 Scorched by the rays of the sun and blasted by the shafts of Drona, the Pandava divisions there began to reel about on the field.
Mbh.7.95.4367 Variegated with pearls and corals, decked with gems and gold, adorned with standards and ornaments, with coats of mail made of gold, with triumphal banners with rich caparisons of elephants, with fine blankets, with bright and sharp weapons, with yak-tails, ornamented with gold and silver, on the heads of steeds, with garlands, round the frontal globes of elephants and rings round their tusks, O Bharata, the Kuru and the Pandava hosts then looked like a mass of clouds at the close of summer, decked with rows of cranes and myriads of fire-flies under them and adorned with rainbows and flashes of lightning.
Mbh.7.99.4605 Thy warriors, seeing Krishna and the Pandava so cheerful I loudly exclaimed, afflicted with fear, The king is slain'
Mbh.7.103.4806 And with another shaft he cut off the standard of Yudhishthira, and with three he afflicted the Pandava himself.
Mbh.7.103.4810 Beholding Drona, that slayer of foes, rush towards him, cries of Oh and Alas suddenly rose from the Pandava army'
Mbh.7.103.4812 Loud wails of this kind were heard, O Bharata, among the Pandava troops.
Mbh.7.105.4884 Whilst being struck in that battle with those shafts sped from the bow of Bhima, the Rakshasa recollected the slaughter of his brother Vaka by the illustrious Pandava.
Mbh.7.105.4899 And in consequence of that arrowy downpour, many elephants also of the Pandava army were slain, and many steeds also, O king, and many foot-soldiers.
Mbh.7.106.4958 There arose then a loud uproar in the Pandava army of conchs and of diverse kinds of arrows.
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.7.110.5256 The great car-warriors of the Pandava army.
Mbh.7.110.5330 Then the foremost warriors of the Pandava host, beholding Drona thus pursuing Yuyudhana from behind, cheerfully began to resist him.
Mbh.7.110.5334 The brave warriors, however, of the Pandava army, though thus afflicted by the ruler of the Bhojas, stood, like high-born soldiers that they were, resolved to fight with the division of the Bhojas itself, from a desire of great renown
Mbh.7.116.5663 Today, I shall show unto my preceptor, the high-souled Pandava, of white steeds, the skill in weapons acquired by me from him.
Mbh.7.118.5797 Should we stay here to meet the advancing Pandava, or should we proceed towards Satyaki?
Mbh.7.119.5845 Penetrating into the midst of the Pandava host in that battle, Drona began to crush their warriors by hundreds and thousands.
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.7.121.5953 Dhritarashtra said, When the Pandava host was thus proceeding to battle, Duryodhana, in penetrating it, must have been placed in great distress.
Mbh.7.121.5959 Indeed, the Pandava army was agitated by Duryodhana in that battle, like an assemblage of lotus-stalks in a lake by an elephant.
Mbh.7.122.6032 Indeed, O bull of Bharata's race, when the Pandava army was thus being slaughtered by Drona, there arose an awful wail of woe from it.
Mbh.7.122.6053 Upon the slaughter of Dhrishtadyumna's son, the Pandava troops began to tremble.
Mbh.7.124.6131 Sanjaya said, Having said those words, the mighty Bhima began to prepare for setting out, repeatedly making over Yudhishthira to Dhrishtadyumna and the other friends of the Pandava cause.
Mbh.7.126.6317 And the combatants of the Pandava army blew their conchs from every side, Their enemies, viz, thy warriors, hearing that noise, roared loudly.
Mbh.7.128.6418 Indeed, O monarch, those shafts shot from Karna's bow completely shrouded that car with its standard and driver and the Pandava himself.
Mbh.7.145.7633 Sanjaya continued, Thus showing the field of battle unto the diadem-decked Arjuna, Krishna blew his conch Panchajanya with the gleeful soldiers of the Pandava army blowing their respective conchs.
Mbh.7.149.7843 Sanjaya continued, While they were discoursing thus, O king, the Pandava divisions appeared for battle.
Mbh.7.150.7846 SECTION CLII Ghatotkacha-badha Parva Sanjaya said, That elephant force of thine, O king, swelling with might, fought everywhere, prevailing over the Pandava force.
Mbh.7.150.7858 Filling the earth with the rattle of his car-wheels and causing her to tremble therewith, thy son approached the Pandava host.
Mbh.7.150.7864 Afflicted with those keen shafts, the Pandava troops began to fall down on the ground.
Mbh.7.150.7866 The Pandava host was crushed and ground by an elephant
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.7.151.7885 SECTION CLIII Dhritarashtra said, Having said all those words unto my son, Duryodhana, who is ever disobedient to my commands, when that mighty bowman endued with great strength, viz, the preceptor Drona, penetrated in wrath into the Pandava host, and when that hero, stationed on his car, careered over the field, how did the Pandavas check his course?
Mbh.7.152.7975 The Pandava, however, smiling the while, seized with his hand that dart.
Mbh.7.153.8029 Beholding the Preceptor advance, many Pandava warriors headed by Yudhishthira surrounded that illustrious perpetuator of Yadu's race from desire of rescuing him.
Mbh.7.153.8031 Then Bharadwaja's son of great energy shrouded the Pandava host with clouds of arrows and pierced Yudhishthira also.
Mbh.7.153.8043 Drona, surrounded, O king, on all sides, by thy sons, began to consume the Pandava host, like fire consuming a heap of cotton.
Mbh.7.153.8046 Thus slaughtered by that illustrious warrior, the Pandava host, once more fled away in fear in the very sight of Arjuna.
Mbh.7.153.8099 Beholding his mighty son slain by Aswatthaman, Ghatotkacha, coming unto the son of Drona, fearlessly addressed the heroic son of Saradwata's daughter, who was then consuming the Pandava troops like a raging forest-conflagration, in these words: Ghatotkacha said, Wait, Wait, O son of Drona!
Mbh.7.154.8243 The mighty Pandava, however, soon disposed of him effectually.
Mbh.7.154.8258 The mighty-armed Pandava, however, conversant with morality, fearlessly baffled all those weapons of the Pot-born that were hurled or in course of being hurled at him.
Mbh.7.156.8396 Yonder, all the Pandava troops are approaching from desire of fight with Radha's son.
Mbh.7.157.8507 Myself, Karna, Salya, Kripa, and Hridika's son, could, O best of kings, destroy the Pandava host within the twinkling of an eye.
Mbh.7.157.8511 The Pandava army is incapable of being vanquished as long as the sons of Pandu are alive.
Mbh.7.157.8571 Beholding those feats of Drona's son, resembling those of Vasava himself in battle, the Pandava host, O bull of Bharata race, began to tremble in fear.
Mbh.7.159.8635 Meanwhile, the Pandava also, O king, with all the Prabhadrakas and accompanied by a large force, rushed against Drona's army.
Mbh.7.160.8672 How also, O Sanjaya, when everything was enveloped in darkness, did the Pandava troops as also mine once more became visible'
Mbh.7.161.8744 Upon the slaughter of all the Srinjayas at the head of the Pandava army, Drona's son without doubt, will slay Dhrishtadyumna in battle.
Mbh.7.161.8755 And as the Pandava and the Panchala troops on the one side and the Kaurava troops on the other, O Bharata, were engaged in slaughtering each other, there arose a furious uproar on the field.
Mbh.7.170.9177 Beholding Drona slaughtering the Pandava army in that battle, the Somakas quickly pierced him from every side with showers of arrows.
Mbh.7.170.9182 Indeed, many were the combatants of the Pandava army that were then despatched to the other world.
Mbh.7.170.9183 Thus afflicted by that illustrious hero, the Pandava host, that night, O king, fled away, throwing down their blazing torches all around, in the very sight of Bhimasena and Arjuna and Krishna and the twins and Yudhishthira and Prishata's son.
Mbh.7.170.9190 Beholding the host fly away, through fear, ye Pandava warriors, cast away your fears!
Mbh.7.171.9260 Yonder, the mighty bowman Karna, endued with great intelligence and steady prowess, is scorching the foremost of Kshatriyas among the divisions of the Pandava host.
Mbh.7.171.9261 Afflicted by his fiery arrows, the Pandava warriors are incapable of standing in front of that firm bowman who is shooting showers of mighty shafts.
Mbh.7.172.9301 Having pierced Bhimasena's son with many shafts, Alamvusha, without losing any time, began to afflict the Pandava host with his arrows.
Mbh.7.172.9302 Thus afflicted by him, O Bharata, the Pandava troops, at dead of night, broke and fled away like clouds dispersed by a tempest.
Mbh.7.173.9449 Among those thousands of kings on the Pandava side, O sire, there was not a single one, O monarch, that could even look at Karna then, save the mighty Ghatotkacha, that prince of Rakshasas, who was endued with terrible energy and strength, and who, inflamed with rage, then looked like Yama himself.
Mbh.7.174.9502 With blazing Angadas and blazing diadem and garlands, decked with floral wreaths and headgear and sword armed with mace and Bhushundis and short clubs and ploughs and bows and arrows, and with skin black and hard as that of the elephant, riding on that car possessed of the splendour of fire, he looked, while employed in afflicting and routing the Pandava host, like a roving cloud in the welkin, decked with flashes of lighting.
Mbh.7.174.9503 As Alayudha came to battle, the principal kings of the Pandava army endued with great might, and armed with sword and shield, and clad in mail, engaged in fight, O king, with joyous hearts
Mbh.7.181.9860 In that dark hour of the night, they fell impetuously upon the Pandava troops and began to slay them.
Mbh.7.181.9885 Behold, the Pandava host crushed at dead of night, like an extensive forest of heath by a couple of infuriated elephants.
Mbh.7.182.9941 Drona, however, that foremost of all wielders of arms, received in battle all those Pandava warriors thus rushing towards him suddenly with great force and perseverance.
Mbh.7.182.9966 The Pandava host hath ceased to strike us'
Mbh.7.182.9967 Then at those words of Phalguna, uttered loudly by him, the Pandava army as also thine, O Bharata, abstained from battle.
Mbh.7.184.10069 Then all the warriors of the Kuru and the Pandava hosts, alighting from cars and steeds and vehicles borne by men, stood, with joined hands, facing the sun, and uttered the prayers of the twilight of dawn.
Mbh.7.184.10096 Beholding him move away from the battle towards the north, the Pandava troops, O king, began to tremble.
Mbh.7.184.10127 Soon will he annihilate the Pandava army.
Mbh.7.185.10174 Then Duryodhana, Karna, Drona and Duhsasana, these four Kauravas warriors engaged in battle with four of the Pandava warriors, Duryodhana and his brothers, encountered the twins Nakula and Sahadeva.
Mbh.7.186.10254 The combatants of the Kurus and the Pandava armies, as also all other creatures, became inspired with fear, when that illustrious warrior uplifted that weapon.
Mbh.7.187.10272 Between those four warriors of thy army and those three of the Pandava side, the battle that took place was exceedingly dreadful but divested of everything unfair.
Mbh.7.188.10338 The great car-warriors of the Pandava army, endued with might and energy, though slaughtered, O king, by Drona's weapons, were not yet afraid of Drona in that battle.
Mbh.7.190.10573 Then Bhimasena, O king, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata, were seen in the midst of the Pandava host to embrace each other.
Mbh.7.191.10606 Slaying many warriors of the Pandava army that were incapable of being defeated with ease, and escaping with difficulty from the press of battle, that hero, possessed of the tread of an infuriated elephant, saw the Kaurava host running away, resolved on flight.
Mbh.7.196.10987 Having pacified those two great bowmen, those two heroes, whose eyes had become blood-red with rage, all the Kshatriyas of the Pandava army proceeded against the warriors of the hostile army for battle'
Mbh.7.197.10998 The encounter, then, O king, that once more took place between the Kuru and the Pandava armies, became as terrible as that of two oceans at full tide.
Mbh.7.197.11003 Filled with joy, the Kuru and the Pandava warriors beat thousands of drums.
Mbh.7.197.11012 Slaughtered by the Narayana weapon, as if consumed by a conflagration, the Pandava troops were exceedingly afflicted all over the field in that battle.
Mbh.7.197.11034 The warriors of the Pandava army, hearing, O Bharata, these words of Vasudeva, threw their weapons and drove away from their hearts all desire of battle.
Mbh.7.197.11053 Beholding that weapon of terrible energy thus increasing in might, a panic entered the hearts of all the combatants of the Pandava army with the exception of Bhima.
Mbh.7.198.11064 Beholding that weapon thus investing Bhima all around, and seeing Drona's son swelling with energy and might, the latter being then without an antagonist, and observing also that all the warriors of the Pandava army had laid down their weapons and that all the mighty car-warriors of that host headed by Yudhishthira had turned away their faces from the foe, those two heroes, viz, Arjuna and Vasudeva, both endued with great splendour, quickly alighting from their car, ran towards Bhima.
Mbh.7.198.11082 The remnant of the Pandava host, beholding the pacification of the Narayana weapon, once more stood prepared on the field for compassing the destruction of thy sons.
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.7.198.11140 Beholding Dhrishtadyumna thus afflicted by Aswatthaman, like an infuriated elephant by a lion, five heroic car-warriors of the Pandava army, viz, Kiritin, Bhimasena, Vrihatkshatra of Puru's race, the youthful prince of the Chedis, and Sudarsana, the chief of the Malavas, quickly rushed against Aswatthaman.
Mbh.7.198.11174 Then Drona's son, O king, cutting off Bhima's bow by means of his arrows, and filled with rage, struck the Pandava in the chest with many keen shafts.
Mbh.7.198.11224 A thick gloom suddenly shrouded the Pandava host.
Mbh.7.198.11243 Indeed, O Bharata, it seemed that the divine lord Agni burnt the Pandava host in that battle, like the Samvarta fire consuming everything at the end of the Yuga.
Mbh.7.198.11244 Beholding the Pandava army thus burning in that dreadful battle, thy soldiers, O king, filled with joy, uttered leonine shouts.
Mbh.7.198.11246 Darkness having enveloped the world during that fierce battle, the entire Pandava army, with Savyasachin, the son of Panda, could not be seen.
Mbh.7.198.11250 We then beheld a wonderful sight, viz, a full Akshauhini of the Pandava troops laid low.
Mbh.7.198.11255 And soon there arose diverse sounds of life mingled with the blare of conchs and the beat of drums, from among the Pandava troops filled with joy.
Mbh.8.1.17 During the commandership of Karna, the battle that took place between the Kuru and the Pandava troops was exceedingly fierce and lasted for two days.
Mbh.8.11.439 Hearing those words of his brother, that Pandava of the white steeds disposed his army in counter array after the form of the half moon.
Mbh.8.11.448 Similarly Yudhishthira, O king, beholding the Pandava army disposed in array, regarded the Dhartarashtras with Karna to be already slain.
Mbh.8.13.501 SECTION Sanjaya said, Then the mighty and heroic bowman Karna began to smite the Pandava army in that battle, with his straight shafts.
Mbh.8.13.503 Karna also, O king, in that battle slew the Pandava army with his cloth-yard shafts bright as the rays of the Sun and polished by the hands of the smith.
Mbh.8.15.587 Baffling with his own shafts the shafts of his foe in that battle, the son of Drona, O king, as if smiling, then struck the Pandava on the forehead with a cloth-yard shaft.
Mbh.8.15.591 The son of Drona then afflicted the Pandava with hundreds of arrows, but failed to shake him like the wind failing to shake the mountain.
Mbh.8.16.658 With his arm that held an arrow in its grasp, the son of Drona hailed the Pandava, shooting shafts equipped with foe-slaying heads, and smilingly told him these words, If, O hero, thou regardest me a worthy guest arrived before thee, then give me today, with the whole heart, the hospitality of battle
Mbh.8.18.727 SECTION Sanjaya said, Meanwhile towards the northern part of the Pandava army, a loud uproar arose of cars and elephants and steeds and foot-soldiers as those were being massacred by Dandadhara.
Mbh.8.21.893 Then many foremost of warriors of the Pandava army, endued with great energy and quick in the use of weapons, speedily wheeling round, encompassed Karna on all sides.
Mbh.8.22.943 Then in consequence of those rain-charged clouds constituted by the Pandava warriors, those hills constituted by the elephants of the foe, fell, struck down by torrents of rain formed by their numerous shafts, like real mountains struck down with a thunder-storm.
Mbh.8.22.944 Those leaders of the Pandava car-warriors then, thus slaying those elephants of thine cast their eyes on the hostile army, which, as it fled away at that time resembled a river whose continents had been washed away.
Mbh.8.24.1048 A great and fierce calamity overtook the warriors of the Pandava army as they fought with whetted arrows, and mangled as they were with the shafts of Karna.
Mbh.8.24.1050 Indeed, as that mighty car-warrior was engaged in scorching the Pandava divisions, the kshatriyas avoided him, regarding him to be the blazing Yuga fire.
Mbh.8.25.1096 Subala's son also, taking up another formidable and invincible bow, proceeded towards the Pandava army, slaying large numbers of foes on the way.
Mbh.8.26.1146 After the defeat of the heroic son of Drupada, O lord, the Pandava army, slaughtered on all sides, fled away from the field
Mbh.8.30.1294 That force, however, vast as the ocean, assailed by foes possessed of great quickness viz, the Pandava warriors headed by the sons of Drupada, fled away from the field.
Mbh.8.34.1785 Let, O Shalya, that be done speedily today by which this Karna, grinding the Pandava troops, may be able to slay Kunti's son owning white steeds and having Krishna for the driver of his car.
Mbh.8.35.1858 Hearing the terrible and loud twang of his bow and the sound of his palms, the Pandava troops fly away on all sides.
Mbh.8.35.1872 Indeed, as Krishna is to bear the burthen of the Pandava troops upon the slaughter of Partha, even so art thou to bear the burthen of this vast Kaurava force if Karna lays down his life.
Mbh.8.36.1929 When thou wilt behold Dharma's son and the twins causing a canopy, like that of the clouds in the welkin, with their sharp arrows, and the other invincible kings of the Pandava army, endued with great lightness of hands and shooting showers of shafts and weakening their foes, then thou wilt not utter such words
Mbh.8.38.1995 SECTION Sanjaya said After Karna, gladdening thy army, had set out for battle, he spoke unto every Pandava soldier that he met with, even these words: Unto him that will today point out the high-souled Dhananjaya of white steeds to me, I will give whatever wealth he desires.
Mbh.8.42.2287 There is none else save myself that would on a single car fight with that Pandava who resembles the destroyer himself.
Mbh.8.46.2504 Duly disposing his own troops in counter-array, O bull of Bharata's race, that hero of great energy made a great slaughter of the Pandava forces like Maghavat slaughtering the Asura host.
Mbh.8.46.2576 There the Pandava heroes, advancing for the attack, are slaying kings and large numbers of elephants and steeds and car-warriors and foot-soldiers of thy army engaged in battle.
Mbh.8.47.2608 The vast Pandava force then, teeming with horsemen and elephants and foot-soldiers and cars, and headed by Dhrishtadyumna, looked exceedingly magnificent.
Mbh.8.48.2628 SECTION Dhritarashtra said, Tell me, O Sanjaya, how Karna, having caused a great slaughter penetrated into the midst of the Pandava troops, and struck and afflicted king Yudhishthira.
Mbh.8.48.2638 Then Karna, excited with great wrath, quickly invoking his weapons, began to smite the Pandava army like Maghavat smiting the army of the Asuras.
Mbh.8.48.2639 Penetrating then into the Pandava host and shooting his arrows, Karna slew seven and seventy foremost of warriors among the Prabhadrakas.
Mbh.8.48.2652 Desirous of rescuing their father, the sons of Karna, all of whom were effectual smiters, and many other heroes, O king, of thy army, resisted those Pandava heroes.
Mbh.8.48.2700 Having crushed those mighty bowmen with showers of arrows, the son of Radha, that crusher of foes, then penetrated, unresisted, into the midst of the division commanded by the Pandava king.
Mbh.8.48.2702 Then many Pandava warriors, O king, with Shikhandi and Satyaki, desirous of rescuing the king from the son of Radha, surrounded the former.
Mbh.8.49.2706 SECTION Sanjaya said, Piercing through the Pandava host, Karna, surrounded by thousands of cars and elephants and steeds and foot-soldiers, rushed towards king Yudhishthira the just.
Mbh.8.49.2741 The Pandava heroes, armed with diverse kinds of arrows and diverse weapons and accompanied by cars and elephants and steeds, rushing towards Karna, encompassed him on all sides, from desire of slaying him.
Mbh.8.49.2742 Thus assailed on all sides by the foremost of Pandava warriors, Karna invoked into existence the brahmastra and filled all the points of the compass with arrows.
Mbh.8.49.2752 Thereupon blood spouted forth from the wounds of Karna, and the latter, filled with rage and breathing like a snake, cut off his antagonist's standard and pierced the Pandava himself with three broad-headed arrows.
Mbh.8.49.2772 Having said these words unto the son of Pritha, the mighty Karna, setting Yudhishthira free, began to slaughter the Pandava host like the wielder of the thunderbolt slaughtering the Asura host.
Mbh.8.49.2807 The Pandava heroes then, headed by Bhimasena and Satyaki, once more rushed impetuously against that army already beaten.
Mbh.8.49.2808 Beholding the impetuosity of that rush of the Pandava heroes to be irresistible, the vast force of thy sons, O king, turned its back on the field.
Mbh.8.50.2810 SECTION Sanjaya said, Beholding the Pandava heroes rushing impetuously towards thy host, Duryodhana, O monarch, endeavoured to check the warriors of his army on all sides, O bull of Bharata race.
Mbh.8.53.3008 Then all of them encompassed the great car of the Pandava.
Mbh.8.54.3085 The commander of the Pandava forces, viz, the son of Prishata, then, filled with rage, approached Kritavarma and poured upon him a fierce shower of arrows.
Mbh.8.55.3102 Beholding the great lightness of hands displayed by the son of Drona, the mighty car-warriors of the Pandava army were filled with wonder.
Mbh.8.55.3104 While the Pandava troops were thus being slaughtered, those mighty car-warriors, viz, the sons of Draupadi, and Satyaki, and king Yudhishthira the just, and the Pancala warriors, all uniting together, cast off their fears of death and rushed against the son of Drona.
Mbh.8.55.3115 Then, O monarch, the son of Drona covered the Pandava troops, O sire, with thick showers of arrows, O bull of Bharata's race.
Mbh.8.55.3122 Then the Pandava warriors headed by Yudhishthira, shooting sharp shafts, all rushed with impetuosity towards Drona's son, that foremost of all wielders of weapons.
Mbh.8.55.3124 Then like a fire in the forest consuming heaps of dry grass and straw, that mighty car-warrior, viz, Drona's son, having showers of arrows for his flames, consumed the Pandava troops in that battle, who resembled a heap of dry grass and straw.
Mbh.8.56.3160 The commander then, O king, of the Pandava army, viz, the mighty car-warrior Parshata Son of Prishata proceeded to that spot where Duryodhana was.
Mbh.8.56.3221 The Suta's son, filled with rage, routed the Pandava division, while Bhimasena in rage routed the Kurus.
Mbh.8.56.3242 Thereupon, with a cars, and elephants, and horses, and of foot-soldiers armed with the bow, endued with great courage, of sureness of aim and conversant with all the ways of battle, the leaders of the samsaptakas rushed from every side towards the son of Kunti in the great battle covering the Pandava, O monarch, with showers of arrows from all sides.
Mbh.8.56.3265 With those shafts sped by him, he began to rout the Pandava army.
Mbh.8.56.3278 During the progress of that dreadful battle between Drona's son and the Pandava, during that time when the mighty son of Drona, O monarch, thus prevailed over his antagonist and the son of Kunti lost his energy, Krishna became filled with rage.
Mbh.8.58.3320 Having vanquished the son of Drona, and other great car-warriors, Arjuna, O king, addressing Vasudeva, said, Behold, O Krishna of mighty arms, the Pandava army is flying away.
Mbh.8.59.3378 After that furious battle, producing rivers of blood, had commenced, and when a remnant only of the brave samsaptakas, O Bharata, were left unslaughtered, Dhrishtadyumna, O monarch, with all the kings on the Pandava side and those mighty car-warriors, the Pandavas themselves, all rushed against Karna only.
Mbh.8.59.3408 Having said these words, the wrathful commander of the Pandava forces, viz, the son of Prishata, pierced Drona's son with a keen arrow.
Mbh.8.60.3446 Yonder, Duryodhana, O Partha, the king of the whole world, clad in mail and accompanied by a large car force, is pursuing the Pandava king.
Mbh.8.60.3453 The army of Dhritarashtra's son, O Pandava, is arrayed and equipped duly.
Mbh.8.60.3471 In the very sight of the twins, O Partha, and of Satyaki and Shikhandi, and Dhrishtadyumna and Bhima and Satanika, O lord, as also of all the Pancalas and the Cedis, O Bharata, yonder Karna is destroying the Pandava division with his arrows, like an elephant destroying an assemblage of lotuses.
Mbh.8.61.3554 Similarly, the great car-warriors of thy army, O king, quickly proceeded against the Pandava host, desirous of slaughtering it.
Mbh.8.61.3581 Then many Pancala car-warriors and elephants and horses, O elder brother of Pandu, desirous of rescuing the commander of the Pandava army encompassed thy son.
Mbh.8.61.3601 Thy son resisted Bhimasena in that battle, in a trice Bhima made that ruler of men steedless and driverless and carless and standardless, at which the Pandava troops became highly glad.
Mbh.8.62.3635 Understanding the wicked intentions of the enemy, the great car-warriors of the Pandava army, uniting together, rushed towards Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, for rescuing him.
Mbh.8.62.3662 and all of them then pursued the Pandava king.
Mbh.8.63.3668 Breaking that car-force into many parts by means of his arrows, Karna, singly and riding on that same car of his, pursued Yudhishthira, who then, exceedingly mangled with arrows and almost insensible, was proceeding slowly for reaching the Pandava encampment with Nakula and Sahadeva on his two sides.
Mbh.8.63.3703 With his twin brothers accompanying him, that ruler of men, quickly repairing in shame to the Pandava camp, his body exceedingly mangled with shafts, alighted from the car and hastily sat down on an excellent bed.
Mbh.8.64.3711 Beholding the two Krishnas shrouded with arrows, the great car-warriors of the Pandava army, as also the Kurus that witnessed it, wondered exceedingly.
Mbh.8.64.3760 Entirely shrouded with those blazing and terrible arrows winged with feathers of Kankas and peacocks, the Pandava army could not see anything.
Mbh.8.72.4285 Beholding that great bowman thus proceeding, all creatures, O Bharata, regarded Karna as already slain by the high-souled Pandava.
Mbh.8.73.4351 These lords of Earth and these Srinjayas, united together, and these Pandava troops also, obtaining thy invincible self as their leader, are maintaining their ground on the field.
Mbh.8.73.4379 Slaughtering the Pandava host for ten days together, Bhishma made the terraces of numberless cars empty and deprived innumerable elephants and steeds of life.
Mbh.8.73.4380 Having assumed the form of Rudra or of Upendra in battle, he afflicted the Pandava divisions and caused a great carnage amongst them.
Mbh.8.73.4381 Desirous of rescuing the wicked Suyodhana who was sinking in a raftless sea, he slaughtered many lords of Earth among the Cedis, the Pancalas, and the Kaikayas, and caused a great massacre of the Pandava army teeming with cars and steeds and elephants.
Mbh.8.73.4461 Encountering even that Bhishma who, single-handed, had encompassed the Pandava army with a cloud of shafts, the Pancalas did not turn away their faces from him.
Mbh.8.75.4539 Sanjaya said, The innumerable divisions of the Pandava army, decked with lofty standards and swelling with pride and energy and united together in battle, began to roar aloud, drums and other instruments constituting their mouth, like masses of clouds at the close of summer uttering deep roars.
Mbh.8.77.4661 Seeing his mightiest soldiers thus afflicted by Bhimasena, O Bharata, king Duryodhana addressed all his troops and great bowmen, O bull of Bharata's race, commanding them to slay Bhima in that battle, since upon Bhima's fall he would regard the Pandava troops already exterminated.
Mbh.8.78.4733 With hundreds upon hundreds of keen arrows sped from the bow-string drawn to his ear, Karna then smote hundreds and thousands of warriors belonging to the Pandava army.
Mbh.8.78.4750 O Bharata, viz, that the Suta's son of great prowess, alone and unsupported in that battle, fought with all those bowmen who contended with him to the utmost of their prowess, and checked all those Pandava warriors, O monarch, with his shafts.
Mbh.8.78.4754 Thus slaughtered by Karna, the Pandava troops, struck with fear, fled in all directions, at the very sight of Karna.
Mbh.8.78.4758 Like a swelling mass of water breaking when it comes in contact with a mountain, the Pandava army broke when it came in contact with Karna.
Mbh.8.78.4767 Routing the foremost of Pancala car-warriors and other foes, Karna of great fame, in that battle, slew the Pandava warriors like a wolf slaying smaller animals.
Mbh.8.78.4768 Beholding the Pandava army turn away from battle, the Dhartarashtra bowmen of great might rushed against the retreating host uttering terrible shouts.
Mbh.8.78.4777 At that time, the king Duryodhana, and Duhshasana, and Kripa, the son of Sharadvata, and Ashvatthama, and Kritavarma, and Shakuni also of great might, slaughtered the Pandava warriors in hundreds and thousands.
Mbh.8.78.4778 The two sons also of Karna, O monarch, those two brothers of prowess incapable of being baffled, filled with rage, slaughtered the Pandava army in several parts of the field.
Mbh.8.78.4780 Similarly the Pandava heroes, Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandi and the five sons of Draupadi, filled with rage, slaughtered thy host.
Mbh.8.79.4802 Indeed, the mighty-armed Hari, at the command of Pandu's son, proceeded on his car, assuring by that very act all the Pandava troops.
Mbh.8.81.4984 Partha, however, pursued them, shooting hundreds of shafts and gladdening the Pandava warriors headed by Bhimasena.
Mbh.8.83.5088 Upon the fall of his brother Citrasena, Karna, filled with wrath and displaying his prowess, put the Pandava host to flight, at which Nakula rushed against that warrior of immeasurable energy.
Mbh.8.84.5146 After the destruction of that car belonging to the son of Pandu Nakula, and after his sword also had been speedily cut off with Vrishasena's shafts; many other foremost of Kuru heroes, uniting together, approached the Pandava brothers, and began to strike them with showers of shafts.
Mbh.8.85.5157 These Kaurava warriors, assailing those foremost of men and first of car-warriors, those eleven heroes of the Pandava army, O king, with the mightiest of shafts, checked their progress.
Mbh.8.87.5317 Thus all creatures were interested in that encounter, siding with this or that leader of car-warriors, the Kuru or the Pandava hero.
Mbh.8.88.5394 Then both the Kaurava and the Pandava warriors, filled with joy, and causing the earth and the ten points of the compass to resound with the voice of musical instruments, the blare of conchs, and leonine roars and the din of battle, began to slaughter their foes.
Mbh.8.89.5499 Cutting off Partha's showers of shafts proceeding from the mouth of that weapon of Indra which Arjuna had shot, Karna, having thus baffled his antagonist's weapon with his own, destroyed cars and elephants and foot-soldiers of the Pandava army.
Mbh.8.91.5868 The Somakas beholding Karna slain and lying on the field, were filled with joy and uttered loud shouts with the other troops of the Pandava army.
Mbh.8.93.5951 The twins Nakula and Sahadeva of great fame, and Satyaki, having pursued with great speed the king of the Gandharvas who was possessed of lightness of hands in the use of weapons, re-appeared amid the Pandava ranks.
Mbh.8.93.5961 At this, all the Pandava heroes, uniting together, rushed against the advancing Duryodhana, shooting and hurling at him diverse weapons and upbraiding him repeatedly.
Mbh.8.96.6129 Having said these words, king Yudhishthira the just, that tiger among men, mounting his car, adorned with gold and having steeds of ivory white and black tails and fleet as thought harnessed unto it, and surrounded by many Pandava troops, set out, conversing pleasantly with Krishna and Arjuna along the way, for beholding the field of battle on which thousands of incidents had taken place.
Mbh.8.96.6144 The kings in the Pandava army, great car-warriors, all filled with joy, approached Kunti's son Yudhishthira and gladdened him greatly.
Mbh.9.1.48 On the side of the Pandavas seven are alive, they are the five Pandava brothers, and Vasudeva, and Satyaki and amongst the Dhartarashtras three are so, Kripa, Kritavarma, and Drona's son, that foremost of victors.
Mbh.9.3.174 Many amongst them challenged the two Pandava heroes, mentioning their names.
Mbh.9.3.185 Having slain with keen shafts the numerous cavalry of Shakuni, those Pandava heroes quickly rushed against Shakuni himself, whereupon a fierce battle was fought there.
Mbh.9.3.194 Beholding all the troops flying away with their faces from the field, those Pandava heroes pursued and smote them like bulls pursuing vanquished bulls.
Mbh.9.3.208 The Pandava army hath now been reduced to a small remnant.
Mbh.9.5.290 The world has seen thee penetrate into the midst of the Pandava divisions and fight with the mighty car-warriors of the Pandavas endued with great energy.
Mbh.9.8.503 cars, elephants, horses, and one million of foot, O Bharata, were all that composed the remnant of the Pandava force in the battle.
Mbh.9.10.640 Similarly, the Pandava host, O king, began to be slaughtered in hundreds and thousands in that battle by thy sons on every side with their arrows.
Mbh.9.11.644 During that battle inspiring the timid with terror, indeed, during the progress of the battle as it was fought on that morning about the hour of sunrise, the Pandava heroes of good aim, protected by the high-souled Yudhishthira, fought with thy forces, making death itself their goal.
Mbh.9.11.646 Beholding that army weakened and helpless like a cow sunk in mire, Shalya, desirous of rescuing it, proceeded against the Pandava army.
Mbh.9.11.647 Filled with rage, the ruler of the Madras, taking up an excellent bow, rushed for battle against the Pandava foes.
Mbh.9.11.657 Then a fierce battle took place between the Kaurava and the Pandava combatants, assembled together in large bodies.
Mbh.9.11.658 Then, O king, the Kauravas, mustering all their divisions, rushed against the Pandava army.
Mbh.9.11.667 The Pandava army, thus slaughtered by Shalya, ran towards Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti for protection.
Mbh.9.12.742 Indeed, O king, thy warriors penetrated into the midst of the Pandava army like swans into a large lake.
Mbh.9.12.745 From only the names we heard of the Pandava warriors that were uttered in course of that battle and from those of the Kuru warriors that were uttered by the Pandavas, we knew the combatants that fought with one another fearlessly.
Mbh.9.13.787 At this, Shalya cut off with a razor-faced arrow the formidable bow of Satyaki, and pierced each of the other Pandava warriors with three arrows.
Mbh.9.13.804 When that brave and mighty car-warrior, that protector of Shalya's car-wheel, was thus slain, Shalya of great strength covered the Pandava troops with showers of arrows.
Mbh.9.13.813 Afflicting with vigour all the Pandava warriors with his shafts from every side, O sire, Shalya shrouded king Yudhishthira the just and roared repeatedly like a lion.
Mbh.9.16.906 Struck by the Kurus, the Pandava troops, in the very sight of the two Krishnas, stayed not on the field, though sought to be checked by Bhimasena.
Mbh.9.16.914 We then beheld the highly wonderful feat that Shalya achieved, since, alone, he fought with the whole Pandava army.
Mbh.9.16.939 Then the Pandava troops once more became filled with joy, especially the Pancalas, the Somakas and the Matsyas.
Mbh.9.16.967 Those amongst the soldiers against whom the eldest Pandava proceeded, were overthrown by him, O king, like mountain summits riven with thunder.
Mbh.9.17.1001 Bhimasena, and the grandson of Sini, and those two foremost of men, the two sons of Madri, encompassed that warrior while he was fighting with the Pandava king of terrible might.
Mbh.9.17.1010 The loud noise of their bows, bowstrings, and palms resembled that of Indra's thunder as those high-souled warriors, the brave ruler of the Madras and the heroic Pandava, showered upon each other their numberless arrows.
Mbh.9.17.1024 When the Pandava king had been brought to that plight, the illustrious Bhimasena, quickly cutting off the bow of the Madra king with an arrow of great impetuosity, deeply pierced the king himself with a couple of arrows.
Mbh.9.17.1039 The ruler of the Madras assailed by those foremost of Pandava warriors headed by Bhimasena, proceeded regardless of them towards Yudhishthira, like a lion proceeding for seizing a deer.
Mbh.9.17.1076 Invincible in battle desirous of paying the last dues of his brother, that foremost of men quickly pierced the Pandava with very many shafts.
Mbh.9.17.1107 Then Ashvatthama, taking up on his car the son of Hridika who had been made steedless and carless by the Pandava king, bore him away from Yudhishthira's presence.
Mbh.9.18.1115 Though repeatedly forbidden by Duryodhana, those heroes, desirous of slaying Yudhishthira, penetrated into the Pandava host.
Mbh.9.18.1121 Like the great river Ganges agitated by a hostile wind, the Pandava host, O king, once more became exceedingly agitated.
Mbh.9.18.1136 Unitedly have these men penetrated in the Pandava host
Mbh.9.19.1243 The two sons of Madri, and Satyaki, rushed against Shakuni, and the other Pandava heroes, smiling, rushed impetuously against thy forces
Mbh.9.20.1255 Beholding the Pandava host broken and flying away in speed, all the foremost of warriors of thy army worshipped king Salwa and blew their conchs white as the moon.
Mbh.9.20.1256 Hearing the shouts of the Kauravas uttered in joy and the blare of their conchs, the commander of the Pandava and the Srinjaya forces, the Pancala prince Dhrishtadyumna could not, from wrath, endure it.
Mbh.9.20.1269 Struck with those shafts, the Pandava car-warriors began to fly away.
Mbh.9.21.1323 The Pandava army was then covered with the shafts of that illustrious warrior, even as a host is covered with the dust it raises while marching or rushing to battle.
Mbh.9.21.1382 Rallying their great car-warriors, however, with vigorous efforts, thy sons continued to fight with the Pandava army.
Mbh.9.21.1394 Then the Pandava heroes headed by Shikhandi, beholding king Yudhishthira the just assailed in that way by the Kauravas, became filled with rage and were unable to put up with it.
Mbh.9.21.1417 During the progress of that great carnage, Shakuni, aided by that force, put forth his valour and assailed the Pandava army at the rear, slaughtering it with his keen shafts.
Mbh.9.21.1448 the Pandava force, covered with blood, and its animals fatigued, moved away from that spot with its remnant consisting of horses.
Mbh.9.21.1449 The blood-stained horsemen of the Pandava army then, with hearts intent on battle and prepared to lay down their lives, said, It is no longer possible to fight here on cars; how much more difficult then to fight here on elephants!
Mbh.9.22.1492 Hearing these words of his, thy warriors, inspired with desire of victory, cheerfully rushed towards the Pandava army.
Mbh.9.22.1495 Beholding those Kuru combatants approach the Pandava army with uplifted bows, Kunti's son Dhananjaya said unto the son of Devaki these words, Urge the steeds fearlessly and penetrate this sea of troops!
Mbh.9.23.1578 Some, advancing with precipitancy on their vehicles decked with gold, fought with Dhrishtadyumna amid the Pandava divisions.
Mbh.9.23.1628 In consequence of those mighty elephants, huge as hills, falling down on every side with crushed limbs, the Pandava warriors found their way almost entirely blocked up.
Mbh.9.25.1712 Beholding those three warriors rushing quickly together with uplifted bows, Subala's son proceeded towards that spot against those Pandava foes.
Mbh.9.27.1830 Many warriors, issuing out of the Pandava array, O Bharata, slew thy troops in a moment in that battle.
Mbh.9.27.1919 The mighty-armed Pandava embraced that child of a Vaisya mother and dismissed him affectionately.
Mbh.9.28.1997 Having said these words, those huntsmen, filled with joy and longing for wealth, took up their baskets of meat and proceeded towards the Pandava camp.
Mbh.9.28.2020 Staying within the waters of that lake, king Duryodhana heard that tumultuous noise of the Pandava army which resembled the very roar of the clouds.
Mbh.9.33.2374 Dismissed by Dhritarashtra's son, Krishna returned to the Pandava camp, and upon the failure of his mission, O tiger among kings, said these words unto the Pandavas, Urged by Fate, the Kauravas are for disregarding my words!
Mbh.9.56.4037 This has been an act of great folly on the part of Yudhishthira, O Pandava, since he hath made the result of the battle depend upon the victory or the defeat of only one warrior!
Mbh.9.56.4092 Those steeds and elephants and human beings that formed the unslain remnant of the Pandava host uttered loud cries when thy son fell.
Mbh.10.8.461 What need I say, therefore, of this remnant of the Pandava army, particularly when it is buried in sleep?
Mbh.10.8.536 The warriors in the Pandava camp beheld that Death-Night in her embodied form, a black image, of bloody mouth and bloody eyes, wearing crimson garlands and smeared with crimson unguents, attired in a single piece of red cloth, with a noose in hand, and resembling an elderly lady, employed in chanting a dismal note and standing full before their eyes, and about to lead away men and steeds and elephants all tied in a stout cord.
Mbh.10.8.538 On other days, O sire, the foremost warriors of the Pandava camp used to see in their dreams that figure leading away the sleeping combatants and Drona's son smiting them behind!
Mbh.10.8.539 The Pandava soldiers saw that lady and Drona's son in their dreams every night from the day when the battle between the Kurus and the Pandavas first commenced.
Mbh.10.8.541 Afflicted by Destiny, the brave warriors of the Pandava camp, recollecting the sight they had seen in their dreams, identified it with what they now witnessed.
Mbh.10.8.542 At the noise made, hundreds and thousands of Pandava bowmen in the camp awoke from their slumbers.
Mbh.10.8.591 Then again, for doing that which was highly agreeable to Drona's son, those two set fire to the Pandava camp in three places.
Mbh.10.8.641 The Pandava camp, in consequence of the sleep in which all within it were buried, was perfectly still when Drona's son had entered it in the night.
Mbh.10.8.655 Having caused that vast slaughter of the Pandava forces, those three great car-warriors Ashvatthama, Kripa and Kritavarma, meeting together, exclaimed, Good luck
Mbh.10.9.732 Thou hast slain that low wretch Dhrishtadyumna who was commander of the Pandava forces, as also Shikhandi.
Mbh.10.11.833 Possessed of great valour and unfading energy, Bhima set out from the Pandava camp and proceeded with great celerity along the track of Ashvatthama's vehicle
Mbh.10.15.973 This blade of grass inspired into a fatal weapon will, however, fall into the wombs of the Pandava women, for this weapon is high and mighty, and incapable of being frustrated.
Mbh.10.15.975 I will now throw this weapon into the wombs of the Pandava women.
Mbh.10.15.979 Throwing this weapon into the wombs of the Pandava women, stop thyself
Mbh.10.15.980 Vaishampayana continued, The son of Drona, having heard these words of the island-born, threw that uplifted weapon into the wombs of the Pandava women
Mbh.10.16.981 SECTION Vaishampayana said, Understanding that that weapon was thrown into the wombs of the Pandava women by Drona's son of sinful deeds, Hrishikesha, with a cheerful heart, said these words unto him: A certain brahmana of pious vows, beholding Virata's daughter who is now daughter-in-law to Arjuna, while she was at Upaplavya, said, While the Kuru line will become extinct, a son will be born to thee.
Mbh.10.18.1105 And he also restored the Sacrifices themselves, O Pandava!
Mbh.11.14.551 SECTION Vaishampayana said, Commanded by Dhritarashtra, those bulls of Kurus race, the Pandava brothers, accompanied by Keshava, then proceeded to see Gandhari.
Mbh.11.19.819 Having in battle penetrated the ranks of the Pandava army, that hero now lieth on the bed of a hero, on the bed, that is, of an exalted Kshatriya!
Mbh.12.156.9368 All the troops of Duryodhana, therefore, were routed and slain by that illustrious Pandava, that son of Paka's chastiser, as he coursed on the field of battle, relying on his own strength.
Mbh.12.348.23197 Vaisampayana said, When the diverse divisions of the Pandava and the Kuru armies were drawn up in the array for the battle and when Arjuna became cheerless, the holy one himself explained the question of what is the end and what is not the end attained by persons of different characters.
Mbh.13.26.3519 Those Rishis then, having obtained the leave of Bhishma and of the Pandava princes, made themselves invisible, vanishing in the very sight of all the beholders.
Mbh.13.26.3523 Thinking of the high blessedness and puissance of those Rishis, the Pandava princes began to converse on the subject with their grandsire Bhishma
Mbh.13.166.13717 It behoveth thee, O learned Brahmana, to tell me now what else did the great Pandava king do'
Mbh.13.167.13740 The Pandava king then consoled these women, who had lost their heroic husbands and sons in the battle, with abundant gift of wealth.
Mbh.14.10.325 Vaisampayana continued, Then the Pandava prince Yudhishthira was delighted on hearing this speech of the son of Satyavati Vyasa, and desirous of performing his sacrifice with those riches, he held repeated consultations with his ministers
Mbh.14.14.404 And then the foremost descendant of Kuru again performed with Dhritarashtra the funeral rites of the heroes slain in battle, and having given away immense wealth to the Brahmanas, the Pandava chief with Dhritarashtra in advance, made this entry into the city of Hastina Nagar, and consoling his lordly uncle, possessed of eyes of wisdom, that virtuous prince continued to administer the earth with his brothers.
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.14.60.2772 Having lost many car-warriors and elephants and horsemen, the remnant of the Pandava army, numbering one Akshauhini and penetrated with cheerlessness, supported Yudhishthira as their leader.
Mbh.14.60.2781 After this the remnant of the Pandava army, as it slept in the camp, was slaughtered at night time by Drona's son who was unable to put up with the slaughter of his father at the hands of Dhrishtadyumna.
Mbh.14.67.3011 Abhimanyu, O Krishna, was the favourite of all the Pandava brothers, without doubt.
Mbh.15.2.58 Whatever acts, grave or light, were directed by king Dhritarashtra, or the helpless Gandhari to be done, were all accomplished with reverence, O monarch, by that slayer of hostile heroes, viz, the Pandava king.
Mbh.15.3.185 Vaisampayana continued, The Pandava king, conversant with every duty, using his own hand, then softly rubbed with cold water the breast and the face of the old monarch.
Mbh.15.15.631 When the royal son of Vichitraviryya thus set out, a loud wail was uttered by the Pandava and the Kaurava ladies as also by other women belonging to the Kaurava race.
Mbh.15.18.732 Beholding Kunti resolved to go into the woods, the ladies of the Pandava household uttered loud lamentations.
Mbh.15.23.923 Teeming with cars and elephants and steeds, and echoing with the blare of trumpets and the music of Vinas, the Pandava host, O monarch, blazed with great beauty.
Mbh.17.2.91 Beholding both Krishna and the Pandava Sahadeva fallen down, the brave Nakula, whose love for kinsmen was very great, fell down himself.
