MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.3.157.7949 And Dhaumya and Krishna and the Parthas and the mighty sage Lomasa went on in a body and none grew tired.
Mbh.3.163.8265 And saying, Let us even here experience delight by joining without delay Arjuna accomplished in arms' those highly blessed Parthas became engaged in the practice of Yoga.
Mbh.3.164.8281 And seeing before them that car driving in which the slayer of Namuchi had annihilated seven phalanxes of Diti's offspring, the magnanimous Parthas went round it.
Mbh.3.164.8285 And having instructed the Parthas even as a father doth his sons, he ascended that incomparable car, and returned to the lord of the celestials.
Mbh.3.165.8293 And ascending a car yoked with steeds, decorated with burnished gold, and roaring like clouds, that king of the celestials, Purandara blazing in beauty came unto the Parthas.
Mbh.3.175.8756 Then advised also by Arshtishena, those first of men, the Parthas, went alone beholding romantic tirthas and hermitages, and other mighty lakes
Mbh.5.55.3024 When the Parthas had been exiled to the woods, there came unto them the slayer of Madhu with a vast army in battle array and capable of crushing hostile kingdoms; and there also came unto them the Kekayas, and Dhrishtaketu, and Dhrishtadyumna of Pritha's race and numerous other kings in their train; and all those great car-warriors were assembled in a place not far from Indraprastha; and having assembled together they censured thee and all the Kurus.
Mbh.5.60.3285 I am for peace with the Parthas and not for war.
Mbh.5.61.3287 SECTION LXI Vaisampayana said, Hearing these words of his father, the passionate son of Dhritarashtra inflamed with great wrath, again said these words, of envy, of Thou thinkest the Parthas having the celestials for their allies, are incapable of being vanquished.
Mbh.5.146.6523 If, therefore, I go today unto the Parthas, who is there that would not regard me as doing so from fright?
Mbh.5.167.7550 Like huge Makaras, O king, agitating the stream of the Ganges crested with high waves, they will agitate the ranks of the Parthas in battle.
Mbh.5.167.7553 Encountering many Maharathas, chief of bowmen, leaders of Kshatriyas, on the side of the Parthas, they will certainly slay them.
Mbh.6.20.952 The Kauravas belonging to the Dhritarashtra party stood facing the west, while the Parthas stood facing the east, addrest for fight.
Mbh.6.48.2537 And the mighty car-warriors of the Parthas entered their quarters cheerlessly, thinking, O chastiser of foes, of that awful slaughter in single combat of their commander
Mbh.6.49.2596 And then beholding Bhishma, O bull of Bharata's race, proudly standing in battle, the Parthas withdrew their forces for nightly rest
Mbh.6.51.2660 Let the Samsthanas, the Surasenas, the Venikas, the Kukkuras, the Rechakas, the Trigartas, the Madrakas, the Yavanas, with Satrunjayas, and Dussasana, and that excellent hero Vikarna, and Nanda and Upanandaka, and Chitrasena, along with the Manibhadrakas, protect Bhishma with their respective troops, Then Bhishma and Drona and thy sons, O sire, formed a mighty array for resisting that of the Parthas.
Mbh.6.98.5200 Then king Duryodhana, addressing the Suta's son and the mighty Sakuni, said unto all those counsellors of his, Drona, Bhishma, and Kripa, and Salya and Somadatta's son do not resist the Parthas.
Mbh.6.98.5247 Slay the assembled Parthas, and those mighty bowmen, viz, the Somakas.
Mbh.6.98.5250 He will vanquish in battle the Parthas with all their friends and kinsmen.
Mbh.6.99.5305 Protected by us, he will protect us and slay the Parthas in battle.
Mbh.6.100.5346 Then the kings of thy array, O monarch, exerting themselves at their best, accompanied by their forces, and placing Bhishma at their van, rushed against the Parthas in battle.
Mbh.6.107.5651 SECTION CVII Sanjaya said, Then thy sire, excited with wrath, began to strike the Parthas and their troops all round, with excellent shafts of great sharpness.
Mbh.6.108.5876 Sanjaya continued, The Parthas then, having ascertained all this went back to their tents, saluting the Kuru grandsire, viz, the high-souled Bhishma.
Mbh.6.109.5930 And the Parthas with Arjuna at their head, placing Sikhandin in the van, proceeded against Bhishma in that battle, scattering diverse kinds of arrows.
Mbh.6.109.5936 Dhritarashtra said, Tell me, O Sanjaya, what the valiant Bhishma, excited with rage, did in battle, upon beholding my host afflicted by the Parthas.
Mbh.6.109.5949 The Parthas cast their eyes, with cheerless hearts, upon thy heroic sire struggling in battle, like the celestials upon the Asura Viprachitti in days of old
Mbh.6.110.5988 Agreeably to his vow, O thou of Kuru's race, the ever-victorious Bhishma was incessantly engaged in slaughtering the troops of the Parthas.
Mbh.6.115.6280 Then all the Parthas with Yudhishthira at their head, placing Sikhandin in the van, and uniting with the Srinjayas, fought with Bhishma in battle.
Mbh.6.115.6281 And similarly all the warriors of thy army, placing Bhishma of regulated vows in their van, fought in battle with all the Parthas headed by Sikhandin.
Mbh.6.116.6317 Then those brave warriors of thy army, placing Bhishma of high vows in their van, battled with the Parthas headed by Sikhandin.
Mbh.6.118.6459 What need be said, therefore, of the Parthas who are mortals?
Mbh.6.123.6840 As long as the mighty-armed Krishna is not possessed by wrath, O chief of the Kurus, it is fit, O sire, that peace should be made with the heroic Parthas!
Mbh.6.123.6847 Abandoning thy wrath, let peace be made with Parthas.
Mbh.7.7.227 The mighty-armed Bhishma spared the Parthas in battle.
Mbh.7.9.333 Foremost in the world like Sakra himself in heaven, of great might and great energy, alas, how could he be slain by the Parthas, like the whale by the smaller fish?
Mbh.7.33.1717 SECTION XXXIII Sanjaya said, The Parthas then, headed by Bhimasena, approached that invincible array protected by Bharadwaja's son.
Mbh.7.37.1886 Seeing that warrior of great proficiency in battle, Bharadwaja's son of great wisdom, with eyes expanded in joy, quickly came towards Kripa, and addressing him said, as if crushing by that speech of his the very vitals of thy son, O Bharata, the following words, Yonder cometh the youthful son of Subhadra at the head of the Parthas, delighting all his friends, and king Yudhishthira, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Bhimasena, the son of Pandu, and all his kinsmen, and relatives by marriage, and all who are watching the battle as spectators without taking any part in it.
Mbh.7.38.1950 The Parthas then, and their followers uttered loud shouts and beat their musical instruments and applauded the son of Subhadra for his heroism
Mbh.7.40.1984 Indeed, king Jayadratha, the son of the ruler of the Sindhus, checked, with all their followers, the Parthas, desirous of rescuing their son.
Mbh.7.40.1989 What gifts did he make, what libations had he poured, what sacrifices had he performed, what ascetic austerities had he well undergone, in consequence of which, single-handed, he succeeded in checking Parthas excited with wrath'
Mbh.7.84.3739 Indeed, those bulls among Kshatriyas fight, penetrating into the array of the Parthas.
Mbh.7.91.4135 The whole army of the Parthas, again, is now close upon our van.
Mbh.7.92.4220 The Parthas headed by Dhrishtadyumna, all accomplished in smiting and arrayed properly covered the troops of Drona with showers of arrows.
Mbh.7.92.4221 Ourselves also, placing Drona, that foremost of all wielders of weapons, at our head, covered the Parthas, gathered by Prishata's son, with our shafts.
Mbh.7.93.4270 Approaching Bharadwaja's son who was staying at the gate of his array, the Parthas battled vigorously for piercing through Drona's division.
Mbh.7.93.4271 And Drona also, accompanied by his forces, desirous of protecting his own array, battled with the Parthas, seeking glory.
Mbh.7.104.4821 Having slain his foe, the mighty car-warrior Vrihatkshatra became filled with joy and fell with great force upon thy troops for the sake of the Parthas.
Mbh.7.106.4951 Upon the slaughter of that wanderer of the night, the Parthas became very cheerful.
Mbh.7.111.5414 After the grandson of Sini, that warrior of prowess incapable of being baffled, had entered into thy host, the Parthas headed by Bhimasena also rushed against thy troops.
Mbh.7.111.5417 The prowess that we then beheld of the son of Hridika was wonderful, inasmuch as the united Parthas succeeded not in transgressing his single self.
Mbh.7.111.5426 Beholding Bhimasena in that condition, the Parthas headed by king Yudhishthira the just afflicted Kritavarman, O king, shooting at him many shafts.
Mbh.7.111.5456 The Parthas, beholding Sikhandin lying senseless on the terrace of his car, soon encompassed Kritavarman in that battle with crowds of cars.
Mbh.7.111.5457 The mighty car-warrior, Kritavarman, then achieved a most wonderful feat there, inasmuch as, alone, he held in check all the Parthas with their followers.
Mbh.7.111.5458 Having thus vanquished the Parthas, that mighty car-warrior then vanquished the Chedis, the Panchalas, the Srinjayas, and the Kekayas, all of whom are endued with great prowess.
Mbh.7.112.5463 After the rout of that force by the high-souled son of Hridika, and upon the Parthas being humiliated with shame and thy troops elated with joy, he that became protector of the Pandavas who were solicitous of protection while sinking in that fathomless sea of distress, that hero, viz, the grandson of Sini, hearing that fierce uproar, of thy army in that terrible fight, quickly turned back and proceeded against Kritavarman.
Mbh.7.119.5831 Before the high-souled Parthas, slaying thy hundred brothers in battle, wrest the earth by force, make peace with the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.121.5970 Then the Parthas, filled with delight surrounded Yudhishthira, like the celestials and great Rishis in days of old surrounding Sakra on the occasion of the slaughter of Vritra.
Mbh.7.122.6065 Saying these words, O monarch, Drupada, that master of an Akshauhini of troops, placing the Parthas at his head, rushed with speed towards Drona
Mbh.7.123.6066 SECTION CXXV Sanjaya said, When the army of the Pandavas was thus agitated on all sides, the Parthas and the Panchalas and the Somakas, retreated to a great distance.
Mbh.7.132.6565 Karna boasts of his competency to vanquish in battle all the Parthas with Govinda amongst them.
Mbh.7.135.6724 And they cried out, Verily, for the sake of the Parthas, the gods are stupefying us, since those arrows shot by both Bhima and Karna are slaying our forces.
Mbh.7.152.7953 How, O Sanjaya, couldst thou mark the distinction on that night between the Kurus and the unretreating Parthas'
Mbh.7.153.8201 Filled once more with rage, the puissant son of Drona having pierced those mighty car-warriors, viz, the Parthas including Vrikodara and the sons of Prishata, slew Suratha, one of the sons of Drupada.
Mbh.7.155.8286 Amongst all the Parthas, Phalguna is the strongest.
Mbh.7.155.8347 It is true also that the Parthas are incapable of being vanquished by the very gods with Vasava at their head, and the Daityas, the Yakshas, and the Rakshasas.
Mbh.7.155.8348 For all that I will vanquish the Parthas with the help of the dart given me by Vasava.
Mbh.7.156.8409 This sinful man is always very hostile to the Parthas.
Mbh.7.156.8459 Today the Parthas shall behold my shafts shot in thousands to resemble flights of locusts.
Mbh.7.156.8494 The very gods with Vasava at their head are incapable of staying within the range of thy weapons, what need be said then of the Parthas and the Panchalas?
Mbh.7.157.8552 Standing before me, display, therefore, till then, the hatred thou bearest towards the Parthas, and the devotion thou cherishest for the Kurus.
Mbh.7.160.8696 Beholding that host of ours illumined, the Parthas also, with great speed, stirring up the foot-soldiers throughout their army, acted like ourselves.
Mbh.7.167.8994 The Parthas, then, and all their followers, uttered a loud roar.
Mbh.7.168.9105 Thus addressed and urged by thy son, Sakuni, clad in mail, proceeded against the Parthas, accompanied by a large force as also by thy sons, in order to consume the sons of Pandu.
Mbh.7.170.9169 I would never have provoked these hostilities with the Parthas, hostilities that are so destructive of heroic combatants if ye had told me otherwise.
Mbh.7.170.9172 Then those two foremost of car-warriors, those two bowmen above all bowmen in the world, rushed with speed against the Parthas headed by the grandson of Sini and by others.
Mbh.7.170.9173 Similarly, the Parthas uniting together, and accompanied by all their troops, advanced against those two heroes, who were roaring repeatedly.
Mbh.7.171.9274 The Parthas, with Dhrishtadyumna, will dispose of Drona'
Mbh.7.177.9668 They that will escape from this dreadful encounter to-day will fight with the Parthas in battle.
Mbh.7.196.10896 Since, having perpetrated such a sinful act, again applauding thyself in the midst of human beings, thou incurrest the censures of the Parthas and all the Andhakas and the Vrishnis.
Mbh.7.197.11015 Seeing his army in course of flight and deprived of its senses, and beholding Parthas standing indifferent, Dharma's son said these words, O Dhrishtadyumna, fly away with your Panchala troops.
Mbh.7.198.11095 Dhritarashtra said, After Drona had been slain with the aid of fraud, and the Narayana weapon baffled, what, indeed, did Drona's son, thus urged by Duryodhana then, do, beholding the Parthas once more arrived for battle freed from the Narayana weapon, and careering at the head of their divisions'
Mbh.8.9.262 Having slaughtered Yudhishthira's army and the large throngs of the Pancala car-warriors, having scorched all the points of the compass by means of his arrowy showers, having stupefied the Parthas in battle like the wielder of the thunderbolt stupefying the asuras, alas, how could that mighty car-warrior, slain by the foe, fall down on the earth like a large tree uprooted by the tempest?
Mbh.8.9.320 He who, disregarding the fierce touch of the arrows shot from gandiva had addressed Krishna, saying, Thou hast no husbands now and glared at the Pandavas, he who, O Sanjaya, relying on the might of his own arms, had entertained no fear, for even a moment, of the Parthas with their sons and Janardana, he, I think, could not possibly meet with death at the hands of the very gods with Vasava at their head rushing against him in fury, what then need I say, O sire, of the Pandavas?
Mbh.8.10.404 Vanquish the Parthas with Govinda and all their followers even these were the words that the eulogists and the brahmanas said unto him, O bull among men!
Mbh.8.10.405 And they also said Slay the Parthas and the Pancalas, O son of Radha, for our victory, like risen Sun ever destroying Darkness with his fierce rays!
Mbh.8.10.407 The Parthas with the Pancalas are incapable of standing before thee armed with weapons, like the danavas before Indra in battle
Mbh.8.12.470 When that host was being thus struck and slain by heroic warriors the Parthas, headed by Vrikodara, advanced against us.
Mbh.8.21.877 If the Parthas had returned, the vast force of the enemy would have been broken.
Mbh.8.21.884 The Kurus and the Pandavas once more fearlessly closed with each other, that is, the Parthas headed by Bhimasena and ourselves headed by the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.30.1311 Then all the foremost heroes among the Parthas began to afflict Karna.
Mbh.8.30.1325 Upon the retirement of the Kauravas, O king, at the close of the day, the Parthas, cheerful at having obtained the victory, also retired to their own encampment, jeering at their enemies by producing diverse kinds of sounds with their musical instruments, and applauding Acyuta and Arjuna.
Mbh.8.31.1358 The mighty-armed Karna would, single-handed, slay the Parthas with the Srinjayas.
Mbh.8.31.1363 Alas, the foolish Duryodhana, relying on Karna, hopeth to vanquish the Parthas with their sons and Keshava in battle!
Mbh.8.32.1463 This my host, therefore, O king, the greater portion of which has been slaughtered, has been reduced to this state by the Parthas who were at first fewer than us.
Mbh.8.35.1880 Eulogised by bards and panegyrists around, thy son then once more addressed Karna, saying, Slay all the Parthas in battle, like the great Indra slaying the Danavas
Mbh.8.36.1900 With thyself as warrior on that vehicle and the ruler of the Madras as its driver, that foremost of car will certainly vanquish the Parthas in battle
Mbh.8.37.1965 Wise or ignorant, when his period is run out, everybody is equally regarded by the Destroyer; no one can escape, O learned one, for this, I will proceed against the Parthas.
Mbh.8.46.2501 SECTION Sanjaya said, Beholding then that unrivalled array of the Parthas made by Dhrishtadyumna which was capable of resisting all hostile armies, Karna proceeded, uttering leonine shouts and causing his car to produce a loud rattle.
Mbh.8.48.2629 Who were those foremost of heroes among the Parthas that resisted Karna?
Mbh.8.48.2631 Sanjaya said, Beholding the Parthas headed by Dhrishtadyumna stationed for battle, that crusher of foes, viz, Karna, rushed impetuously against the Pancalas.
Mbh.8.58.3366 The vast army of the enemy is again broken by the rushing Parthas.
Mbh.8.59.3376 SECTION Sanjaya said, Then the Kurus and the Srinjayas once more fearlessly encountered each other in battle, the Parthas being headed by Yudhishthira, and ourselves headed by the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.73.4417 Karna also always says, I will vanquish the assembled Parthas and that mighty car-warrior, viz, Vasudeva of Dasharha's race.
Mbh.8.79.4800 Otherwise, the son of Radha, O Janardana, will, in my sight, exterminate the mighty car-warriors of the Parthas and the Srinjayas
Mbh.8.88.5430 Peace being made between thee and the Parthas, all creatures will be benefited, through, as it would seem, thy desire.
Mbh.9.2.83 Invincible as thou wert in battle, how, alas, hast thou been slain by the Parthas?
Mbh.9.2.87 Bhagadatta and Kripa and Shalya and the two princes of Avanti and Jayadratha and Bhurishrava and Sala and Somadatta and Bahlika and Ashvatthama and the chief of the Bhojas and the mighty prince of Magadha and Vrihadvala and the ruler of the Kasi and Shakuni the son of Subala and many thousands of Mlecchas and Sakas and Yavanas, and Sudakshina the ruler of the Kambojas and the king of the Trigartas and the grandsire Bhishma and Bharadwaja's son and Gotama's son Kripa and Srutayush and Ayutayush and Satayush of great energy, and Jalasandha and Rishyasringa's son and the Rakshasa Alayudha, and the mighty-armed Alambusa and the great car-warrior Subala, these and numerous other kings, O best of monarchs, have taken up arms for my sake, prepared to cast away their very lives in great battle, stationed on the field amidst these, and surrounded by my brothers, I will fight against all the Parthas and the Pancalas and the Cedis, O tiger among kings, and the sons of Draupadi and Satyaki and Kunti-Bhoja and the rakshasa Ghatotkaca.
Mbh.9.5.297 So also, Krishna, ever engaged in the good of the Parthas, when he came to us as an envoy, was deceived by us.
Mbh.9.7.405 I will vanquish the assembled Parthas and the Somakas in battle.
Mbh.9.7.422 Let the Parthas, and all the Siddhas, with the Charanas behold today the strength that is in my arms and the wealth of weapons I possess.
Mbh.9.7.428 They regarded the Parthas as already slain and brought under the power of the ruler of the Madras.
Mbh.9.8.479 The hope became strong, O king, in the breasts of thy sons that, after Drona and Bhishma and the Suta's son had been overthrown, Shalya, O sire, would slay all the Parthas in battle.
Mbh.9.8.481 When after Karna's fall the Parthas had uttered leonine roars, a great fear, O king, had possessed the hearts of the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.9.8.482 Assuring him duly, the valiant king of the Madras, having formed, O monarch, a grand array whose arrangements were auspicious in every respect, proceeded against the Parthas in battle.
Mbh.9.8.500 Dhritarashtra said, After the fall of the mighty bowmen Bhishma and Drona and the great car-warrior Karna, and after both the Kurus and the Pandavas had been reduced in numbers, and when, indeed, the Parthas, possessed of great prowess, became once more angry in battle, what, O Sanjaya, was the strength of each of the armies'
Mbh.9.10.565 The Parthas are unable to stand before me in battle
Mbh.9.11.674 Beholding Shalya struck by the Parthas on every side, both Kritavarma and Kripa rushed in wrath towards that spot.
Mbh.9.11.702 Beholding that terrible feat of his in battle, the Parthas, with cheerful hearts, worshipped Bhima who was incapable of being tired with exertion
Mbh.9.14.826 Struck in that battle with arrows inscribed with Partha's name, those warriors, beholding that state of things, regarded the field of battle to be full of Parthas.
Mbh.9.15.888 The prowess that we then beheld of the ruler of the Madras was exceedingly wonderful, since the Parthas, even unitedly, could not approach him in that battle.
Mbh.9.15.894 Those great bowmen then, the Parthas, beholding the king of the Madras assailed by Satyaki, quickly rushed towards him from desire of slaying that maternal uncle of theirs.
Mbh.9.16.904 SECTION Sanjaya said, Then, O lord, thy troops, with Shalya at their head, once more rushed against the Parthas in that battle with great impetuosity.
Mbh.9.16.905 Although afflicted, still these troops of thine, who were fierce in battle, rushing against the Parthas, very soon agitated them in consequence of their superior numbers.
Mbh.9.17.1102 Then Duryodhana, seeing from a near point his army broken, alone resisted all the Parthas advancing furiously.
Mbh.9.17.1110 After the slaughter of that foremost of bowmen on the field of battle by that bull of Kuru's race, the Parthas, beholding Shalya slain, united together, and filled with great joy, blew their conchs.
Mbh.9.18.1156 When the brave followers of the Madra king were slain, the mighty car-warriors of the Parthas, those great smiters, beholding a body of horse advancing towards them, rushed towards it with speed from desire of victory.
Mbh.9.19.1180 Let him from this day wait upon the Parthas as their slave.
Mbh.9.19.1224 The prowess that we then beheld of thy son was exceedingly wonderful, since all the Parthas, united together, could not transgress his single self.
Mbh.9.19.1241 Seeing them advancing with speed, the Parthas, arrayed in order of battle, skilled in smiting, excited with rage, and inspired with desire of victory, rushed against them.
Mbh.9.21.1326 The prowess that we then beheld of thy son seemed to be exceedingly wonderful, since the Parthas, even uniting together, could not approach his single self.
Mbh.9.27.1826 Respectfully accepting that command of his, those warriors, difficult of defeat in battle, proceeded once more against the Parthas in that battle, at the behest of thy son.
Mbh.9.27.1903 Even these were filled with a great fear of the Parthas.
Mbh.9.28.1960 After the Parthas had retired to their camp, Kripa and Drona's son and Kritavarma of the Satwata race, slowly proceeded towards that lake.
Mbh.9.29.2103 Either slaying the Parthas in battle make this kingdom that swelleth with prosperity thy own, or slain by us in battle, proceed to those regions that are reserved for heroes
Mbh.9.30.2160 Duryodhana said, Ye Parthas, all of you are possessed of friends, of cars, and of animals!
Mbh.9.30.2211 With voice deep as that of the clouds or of a bull roaring in joy, Duryodhana then, of great prowess, armed with his mace, summoned the Parthas to battle'
Mbh.9.31.2306 See now, O thou of wicked soul, the terrible consequence of those acts as also of the other wrongs that thou didst unto the innocent Parthas!
Mbh.9.60.4333 The Parthas then entered the tent of Duryodhana, shorn of its splendours and reft of its lord and looking like an arena of amusement after it has been deserted by spectators.
Mbh.10.8.464 Having said these words, the son of Drona entered the vast camp of the Parthas; casting off all fear, he penetrated into it by a spot where there was no door.
Mbh.10.8.606 It is only in consequence of the absence of the Parthas that this great slaughter is going on.
Mbh.10.8.651 Sanjaya said, Through fear of the Parthas, O son of Kuru's race, Ashvatthama could not achieve such a feat then.
Mbh.10.8.652 It was owing to the absence of the Parthas and the intelligent Keshava as also of Satyaki, that Drona's son could accomplish it.
Mbh.10.11.825 It is known throughout the world how on an occasion of great calamity thou becamest at the town Varanavata the refuge of all the Parthas.
Mbh.11.20.849 Neither the acquisition of a vast kingdom nor the defeat of their foes conduces to the joy of the Parthas bereft of thee, O lotus-eyed one!
Mbh.12.38.2026 SECTION XXXIX Vaisampayana said, At the time the Parthas entered the city, thousands upon thousands of the citizens came out to behold the sight.
