MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.135.7266 No sooner was the deed done than Drona clasped Phalguna to his bosom and thought Drupada with his friends had already been vanquished in fight.
Mbh.1.137.7324 And having performed the propitiatory rites, the youthful Phalguna, equipped with the finger protector gauntlet and his quiver full of shafts and bow in hand, donning his golden mail, appeared in the lists even like an evening cloud reflecting the rays of the setting sun and illumined by the hues of the rainbow and flashes of lightning.
Mbh.1.137.7334 Vidura replied, O mighty monarch, the son of Pandu and Pritha, Phalguna, clad in mail hath entered the lists.
Mbh.1.138.7375 Karna replied, This arena is meant for all, not for thee alone, O Phalguna!
Mbh.1.138.7384 And Phalguna remained deep hid under cover of the clouds, while Karna remained visible, being surrounded by the rays of the Sun.
Mbh.1.138.7396 If Phalguna is unwilling to fight with one who is not a king, I will install Karna as king of Anga'
Mbh.1.140.7466 Meanwhile, Phalguna, impelled by the desire of doing good unto Bharadwaja's son, assailed the son of Prishata with a shower of arrows and felled him from the elephant on which he was seated.
Mbh.1.147.7864 Vaisampayana continued, The Pandavas set out on the eighth day of the month of Phalguna when the star Rohini was in the ascendant, and arriving at Varanavata they beheld the town and the people
Mbh.1.152.7989 O Phalguna,
Mbh.1.191.9538 Then hearing those words of his, Phalguna replied, saying, O Karna, I am neither the science of arms personified, nor Rama endued with superhuman powers.
Mbh.1.192.9581 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by his mother that hero among men, that foremost scion of the Kuru race, the intelligent king Yudhishthira, reflecting for a moment, consoled Kunti, and addressing Dhananjaya, said, By thee, O Phalguna, hath Yajnaseni been won.
Mbh.3.37.1983 Having spoken thus unto Phalguna, Sakra disappeared then and there, and Arjuna, devoting himself to asceticism, remained at that spot
Mbh.3.38.2020 Hearing these words of those munis with souls under perfect control, the lord of all creatures, the husband of Uma said, It behoveth you not to indulge in any grief on account of Phalguna!
Mbh.3.39.2032 Phalguna, at the sight of the enemy seeking to slay him, took up the Gandiva and a number of arrows resembling snakes of virulent poison.
Mbh.3.39.2035 And beholding that firm wielder of the bow, Phalguna, about to slay the boar, Sankara in the guise of a Kirata suddenly bade him stop saying, The boar like the mountain of Indrakila in hue hath been aimed at by me first; Phalguna, however, disregarding these words, struck the boar.
Mbh.3.39.2078 Soon, however, the arrows of Phalguna were exhausted.
Mbh.3.39.2090 Phalguna then commenced the conflict with trees and stones.
Mbh.3.39.2099 Then, O Bharata, Phalguna, thus pressed by the god of the gods, with limbs, besides, bruised and mangled, became incapable of motion and was almost reduced to a ball of flesh.
Mbh.3.39.2105 And Hara, beholding the wonder of Arjuna and seeing that his body had been emaciated with ascetic austerities, spake unto him in a voice deep as the roaring of the clouds, saying, O Phalguna, I have been pleased with thee for thy act is without a parallel.
Mbh.3.39.2115 Vaisampayana continued, Phalguna then beheld him, Mahadeva, that god of blazing splendour-that wielder of the Pinaka-that one who had his abode on the mountains of Kailasa, accompanied by Uma.
Mbh.3.40.2169 And whatever of evil there had been in the body of Phalguna of immeasurable energy was all dispelled by the touch of the three-eyed deity.
Mbh.3.41.2200 And, O Phalguna, the fame of thy achievements will last for ever in the world: thou hast gratified Mahadeva himself in conflict.
Mbh.3.42.2281 And beholding those self-effulgent regions, Phalguna became filled with wonder, and made enquiries of Matali.
Mbh.3.45.2338 SECTION XLV Vaisampayana said, One day, knowing that Arjuna's glances were cast upon Urvasi, Vasava, calling Chitrasena to himself, addressed him in private saying, O king of Gandharvas, I am pleased; go thou as my messenger to that foremost of Apsaras, Urvasi, and let her wait upon that tiger among men, Phalguna.
Mbh.3.45.2349 At the command of Indra, and for my friendship for thee, and moved also by the numerous virtues of Phalguna, I am already under the influence of the god of love.
Mbh.3.46.2352 SECTION XLVI Vaisampayana said, Having thus sent away the Gandharva successful in his mission, Urvasi of luminous smiles, moved by the desire of possessing Phalguna, took a bath.
Mbh.3.46.2365 And endued with the speed of the winds or the mind, she of luminous smiles soon reached the mansion of Phalguna, the son of Pandu.
Mbh.3.46.2373 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words of Phalguna, Urvasi became deprived of her senses.
Mbh.3.46.2429 Thus addressed by Sakra, that slayer of hostile heroes, Phalguna, experienced great delight and ceased to think of the curse.
Mbh.3.46.2432 The foremost of men, by listening to this account of the awfully pure conduct of Phalguna, the son of the lord of the celestials, become void of pride and arrogance and wrath and other faults, and ascending to heaven, sport there in bliss
Mbh.3.47.2464 And for me tell thou the virtuous Yudhishthira of unbaffled prowess in battle, that he should not be anxious on account of Phalguna, for that hero will return to earth a thorough master of weapons, for without sanctified prowess of arms, and without skill in weapons, he would not be able to encounter Bhishma and Drona and others in battle.
Mbh.3.48.2491 Indeed, peace will be restored only on the death of these or of Phalguna.
Mbh.3.49.2506 The illustrious lord of all the gods, Kapardin himself, desirous of testing Phalguna, fought with him, having assumed the guise of a Kirata.
Mbh.3.49.2508 What other man on earth, except Phalguna, would strive to have a sight of these gods in their own forms?
Mbh.3.49.2525 That also which Phalguna, assisted by Damodara did of old towards helping Agni in the conflagration of Khandava, hath been witnessed by all the world.
Mbh.3.51.2557 When the slayer of Madhu met the Pandavas, they requested him to become the charioteer of Phalguna in battle.
Mbh.3.80.3931 Without that mighty-armed one relying upon whom the Panchalas and the Kauravas fear not the sternly-exerting ranks of the celestials themselves, without that illustrious hero relying upon whose arms we all regard our foes as already vanquished and the earth itself as already conquered, without that Phalguna I cannot obtain any peace in the woods of Kamyaka.
Mbh.3.161.8190 That one next by birth to Bhimasena, Phalguna, versed in the science of profit and all mortal regulations, is well in heaven.
Mbh.3.165.8299 And beholding Phalguna in that attitude, he was exceedingly glad; and by worshipping the king of the celestials, he experienced the highest bliss.
Mbh.3.167.8400 And that lord of the celestials, the divine Maghavan too having ascended his glorious chariot, said, O Phalguna, thou shalt have to repair unto the celestial region.
Mbh.3.167.8472 And seeing me, they asked, O Phalguna, what art thou going to do'
Mbh.3.236.11921 I shall certainly be highly pleased if I cast my eyes on Bhima and Phalguna passing their days in pain with Krishna in the woods.
Mbh.3.250.12382 And those heroes, the Samsaptakas also, having their sense possessed by the Rakshasas, and influenced by the qualities of emotion and darkness, were desirous of slaying Phalguna.
Mbh.3.255.12553 When Karna had thus vowed to slay Phalguna in battle, those mighty charioteers and bowmen, the sons of Dhritarashtra, sent up a loud cheer; and Dhritarashtra's sons thought that the Pandavas had already been conquered.
Mbh.3.300.14788 And, O divine one, respecting what thou hast said unto me of Phalguna, the son of Pandu, let thy grief born of thy anxiety of heart, O lord of splendour, be dispelled touching him and myself; for I shall surely conquer Arjuna in battle!
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.7.38.1947 The son of Phalguna, however, received them fearlessly.
Mbh.7.71.3135 And Phalguna blew Devadatta.
Mbh.7.72.3145 When however, I am threatened by Phalguna alone, will not all these the lords of earth, will not all of you, joined together, be able to protect me?
Mbh.7.72.3165 Then, O king, having touched Drona's feet with reverence, and taken his seat with humility, he asked the preceptor these words, In hitting the aim, in hitting it from it distance, in tightness of hand, and in the force of the stroke, O illustrious one, tell the difference between myself and Phalguna!
Mbh.7.86.3833 Indeed Phalguna, with his shafts, pierced elephants and elephant-riders, horses and horse-riders, car-warriors and drivers of cars.
Mbh.7.88.3887 Cutting the shafts of Arjuna by his own shafts, Drona then pierced both Krishna and Arjuna with many shafts that resembled poison or fire, Then, while Arjuna was thinking of cutting of Drona's bow with his arrows, the latter, endued with great valour, fearlessly and quickly cut off, with shafts the bow-string of the illustrious Phalguna.
Mbh.7.88.3889 And the heroic Drona covered Phalguna himself with many arrows, smiling the while.
Mbh.7.89.4005 Then, the son of the ruler of the Kamvojas, viz, the brave Sudakshina, rushed on his swift steeds against Phalguna that slayer of foes.
Mbh.7.91.4140 I shall not, therefore, abandoning the gate of our array, fight with Phalguna.
Mbh.7.101.4711 And the ruler of the Madras also pierced Phalguna in that battle with ten arrows.
Mbh.7.107.5047 See, that slayer of hostile hosts, Phalguna, is encompassed by the Sindhu-Sauviras, armed with spikes and lances and adorned with many horses in their ranks.
Mbh.7.108.5099 SECTION CX Sanjaya said, That bull amongst the Sinis, viz, Satyaki, hearing these words o, full affection, agreeable, fraught with sweet sounds, opportune, delightful, and equitable that were uttered by king Yudhishthira the just, replied unto him, O chief of the Bharatas, saying, O thou of unfading glory, I have heard all the words thou hast said, words fraught with justice, delightful, and conducive to fame for the sake of Phalguna.
Mbh.7.108.5141 Who will protect thee when I am gone, who is he that is, confiding on whom I may go towards Pritha's son, Phalguna?
Mbh.7.109.5161 I tell thee truly, O king, that there is none in the three worlds who is dearer to me than Phalguna.
Mbh.7.115.5613 SECTION CXVII Sanjaya said, Having vanquished Drona and other warriors of thy army, headed by the son of Haridika, that foremost of men, viz, that bull amongst the Sinis, O foremost one of the Kurus, laughing said unto his charioteer, Our foes, O Suta, had already been consumed by Kesava and Phalguna.
Mbh.7.117.5714 Not even Phalguna, O king, had caused such a carnage there as Satyaki, O monarch, then caused among those troops.
Mbh.7.118.5750 Phalguna himself fought not in the manner in which the renowned grandson of Sini has fought'
Mbh.7.119.5828 The shafts of Satyaki, frightened by which thou seekest safety in flight, are scarcely equal to those of Phalguna in battle that resemble the sun or fire in splendour.
Mbh.7.119.5830 Before the shafts of Phalguna, resembling snakes freed from their sloughs, enter thy body, make peace with the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.123.6072 Sini's grandson Satyaki, of true prowess, that dispeller of the fears of friends, hath been sent by me in the track of Phalguna.
Mbh.7.123.6090 If Bhimasena, the son of Pandu, proceedeth hence to Satyaki, both Satyaki and Phalguna will derive real aid.
Mbh.7.123.6091 Without doubt, I should not feel any anxiety for Satyaki and Phalguna.
Mbh.7.124.6142 Thus making the royal son of Pandu over to Dhrishtadyumna, and saluting his elder brother, Bhimasena, proceeded towards the spot where Phalguna was.
Mbh.7.124.6181 The preceptor thought that Bhima would show him reverence as Phalguna had done before.
Mbh.7.125.6253 Hearing then that roar of Bhimasena, as also that of Phalguna armed with the bow, Yudhishthira, the son of Dharma, O king, became highly gratified.
Mbh.7.125.6262 He who having vanquished Sakra himself in battle, had gratified the bearer of sacrificial libations, that slayer of foes, viz, Phalguna, by good luck, still liveth in this battle.
Mbh.7.125.6263 He, relying upon the might of whose arms all of us are alive, that slayer of hostile armies, Phalguna, by good luck, liveth still.
Mbh.7.125.6268 Decked with diadem and garlands of gold, endued with great strength, having white steeds yoked to his car and Krishna himself for his charioteer, that Phalguna, always dear to me, by good luck, liveth still.
Mbh.7.125.6271 Shall the ruler of the Sindhus who is devoted to Duryodhana's welfare, slain by Phalguna, gladden his foes?
Mbh.7.138.6916 Having with his shafts crushed Drona himself and Kritavarman of the Bhoja race, this Satyaki cometh to thee, O Phalguna!
Mbh.7.138.6917 Intent on Yudhishthira's good, having slain many foremost of warriors, the brave Satyaki, skilled in weapons, is coming to thee, O Phalguna!
Mbh.7.140.7078 Then Pandu's son Dhanajaya, called also Phalguna, incapable of bearing thy sons speaking in that strain, as also of putting up with their words and the words of Bhurisravas, O Bharata, in grief and without an angry heart, and as if for reminding them all, said these words, All the kings are acquainted with my great vow, viz, that no one shall succeed in slaying anybody that belongs to our side, as long as the latter is within the range of my shafts.
Mbh.7.142.7189 How, O son of Radha, when thou art alive will Phalguna succeed in slaying the ruler of the Sindhus before the sun goes to the Asta hills?
Mbh.7.142.7217 Beholding Phalguna in that state, the mighty bowmen of thy army, those bulls among men, endued with wealth of energy, could not brook him.
Mbh.7.142.7221 Desirous of his speedy setting, the Kaurava warriors, bending their bows with arms, resembling the tapering bodies of snake sped their shafts in hundreds towards Phalguna, resembling the rays of the sun.
Mbh.7.142.7242 Then the mighty-armed Phalguna, in that battle, pierced Karna, the son of Vikartana, in all his limbs with a hundred arrows.
Mbh.7.142.7243 All his limbs bathed in blood, the Suta's son of great prowess and bravery, pierced Phalguna in return with fifty arrows.
Mbh.7.142.7254 And they roared at each other and pierced each other with their wordy darts, saying, I am Partha, wait, or, I am Karna, wait, O Phalguna!
Mbh.7.143.7434 Yudhishthira, the son of Dharma, bearing that tremendous shout understood that the ruler of the Sindhus had been slain by the high-souled Phalguna.
Mbh.7.144.7443 Drona's son also, on his car, rushed against Phalguna, the son of Pritha.
Mbh.7.145.7561 Sanjaya said, After Bhimasena had been made carless, that hero, afflicted with the wordy darts of Karna and filled with rage, addressed Phalguna and said, In thy very sight, O Dhananjaya, Karna hath repeatedly said to me, Eunuch, fool, glutton, unskilled in weapons, do not fight, child, unable to bear the burden of battle'
Mbh.7.149.7800 How, indeed, could Phalguna, in spite of the resistance offered by Drona in battle, accomplish his vow by slaying the ruler of the Sindhus?
Mbh.7.149.7802 Truly, Phalguna is exceedingly dear to the illustrious preceptor!
Mbh.7.149.7814 Phalguna is accomplished in weapons, possessed of great activity, endued with youth; he is a hero who has mastered all arms; he is distinguished for the celerity of his movements.
Mbh.7.149.7819 It was for this that Phalguna, of white steeds and having Krishna for his charioteer, succeeded in transgressing the preceptor.
Mbh.7.153.8040 Phalguna, the son of Pritha, with wrath excited a little, quickly proceeded towards the preceptor.
Mbh.7.153.8049 Bhimasena also, beholding Phalguna proceed towards Drona, commanded his own charioteer, saying, Bear me towards Drona's division'
Mbh.7.155.8286 Amongst all the Parthas, Phalguna is the strongest.
Mbh.7.155.8299 Thou art not a match for even one of the sons of Pandu, viz, Phalguna, on the field of battle.
Mbh.7.155.8341 Without doubt, the entire universe, with the celestials, Asuras, and human beings, with all the tribes of Yaksha and Rakshas and with all the elephants and snakes and other creatures, can be annihilated by Bhima and Phalguna by the prowess of their weapons.
Mbh.7.156.8390 Phalguna, however, will quell this risen pride of thine'
Mbh.7.156.8401 Phalguna, however, will quell this thy risen pride'
Mbh.7.156.8431 Dhritarashtra said, Beholding Phalguna excited with fury and looking like the Destroyer himself, as he appears at the end of the Yuga what, O Suta, did Vikartana's son Karna do next?
Mbh.7.156.8444 Then the mighty Karna, taking up that bow within the twinkling of an eye, once more covered Phalguna with clouds of shafts, displaying great lightness of hard.
Mbh.7.156.8462 Stay, ye heroes, in battle, and remove your fear or Phalguna.
Mbh.7.156.8463 Encountering my prowess, Phalguna shall never be able to bear it, like the ocean, the abode of makaras, unable to overcome the continents'
Mbh.7.156.8464 Thus saying, the king proceeded in rage, his eyes red in wrath, surrounded by a large host, towards Phalguna.
Mbh.7.156.8465 Beholding the mighty-armed Duryodhana thus proceeding, Saradwat's son, approaching Aswatthaman, said these words, Yonder, the mighty-armed Duryodhana, deprived of his senses by wrath, desireth to fight with Phalguna, like an insect desiring to rush into a blazing fire.
Mbh.7.157.8572 Slaying a hundred Panchalas with a hundred arrows, and three foremost of men with three keen arrows, in the very sight of Drupada's son and of Phalguna, that mighty car-warrior, viz, the son of Drona, slew a very large number of Panchalas that stayed before him.
Mbh.7.170.9187 Seeing the Panchalas slaughtered and routed, Janardana becoming cheerless, said these words unto Phalguna, Dhrishtadyumna and Satyaki, accompanied by the Panchalas, had proceeded against those great bowmen, viz, Drona and Karna, shooting many shafts.
Mbh.7.171.9229 Then king Yudhishthira, beholding his army flying away, and regarding retreat to be advisable, addressed Phalguna and said, Behold that mighty bowman, Karna stationed there like Rudra himself armed with his bow.
Mbh.7.180.9783 The Suta's son should have, therefore, summoned Phalguna to battle.
Mbh.7.180.9784 Tell me, O Sanjaya, why did not Vrisha then engaging Phalguna in single combat, slay the latter with that dart given him by Sakra?
Mbh.7.180.9825 Sanjaya continued, That tiger among car-warriors, viz, Satyaki of prowess incapable of being baffled, asked the mighty-armed Krishna about the great car-warrior, Karna, saving, O Janardana, even this had been Karna's firm resolution, viz, that he would hurl that dart of immeasurable energy at Phalguna.
Mbh.7.181.9844 Indeed, when you knew that dart could always slay one person in battle, and that it was incapable of being either borne or baffled by the very gods with Vasava at their head, why then, O Sanjaya, was it not hurled by Karna at Devaki's son, or Phalguna, while he was engaged with this in battle before'
Mbh.7.181.9914 Vyasa said, By good luck, Phalguna liveth still although he had encountered Karna in battle.
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.7.196.10979 Or let Phalguna resist all the enemies in battle.
Mbh.7.197.11024 Let the wishes of king Duryodhana be crowned with success today, for I have today slain in battle the preceptor, that always cherished such friendly feelings towards us, that preceptor, who, without protecting, caused that child unacquainted with battle, viz, the son of Subhadra, to be slain by a multitude of wicked warriors, that preceptor, who with his son, sat indifferently, without answering, when Krishna in such distress, dragged into the assembly and sought to be made a slave, asked him to say the truth, that preceptor, who, white all the other warriors were fatigued, cased Duryodhana in invulnerable armour when the latter desired to slay Phalguna and who, having cased him so, appointed him to protect Jayadratha, who, being acquainted with the Brahma weapon, scrupled not to exterminate the Panchalas, headed by Satyajit, that had exerted themselves for my victory, that preceptor, who, whilst we were being unrighteously exiled from our kingdom, freely told us to go into the woods although he had been solicited by our friends to withhold his permission.
Mbh.8.11.436 If thou slayest him today, O mighty-armed one, the victory will be thine, O Phalguna!
Mbh.8.24.1026 Return home, O son of Madri, or go thither where Krishna and Phalguna are
Mbh.8.31.1435 All these being attended to, when I take my stand on my car, I will become superior to Arjuna in the attributes of warrior and will then, O best of the Kurus, vanquish Phalguna.
Mbh.8.34.1782 There is not the slightest doubt, O tiger among kings, that thou art superior to Krishna, to Karna, and to Phalguna.
Mbh.8.35.1885 Having slain all the other warriors Karna desires to slay Phalguna.
Mbh.8.37.1981 Dost thou remember, O Karna, the occasion when, slaughtering those foes in large numbers with his excellent shafts endued with the effulgence of the Sun, Phalguna liberated Dhritarashtra's son himself among the Kurus?
Mbh.8.39.2039 Sanjaya continued, At the conclusion of these words of Karna, Shalya, the ruler of the Madras, desirous of provoking Karna exceedingly, said these words in reply, When keen-pointed shafts winged with Kanka feathers, shot by Phalguna of mighty arms and impelled from his bow-string and sped with all his energy will seek thee then wilt thou lament thy encounter with that hero.
Mbh.8.40.2072 That shaft I will never shoot at any other person save Phalguna or Krishna, the son of Devaki.
Mbh.8.42.2254 On that occasion, O Shalya, the chief of the gods, wishing to benefit Phalguna, caused an obstacle, by approaching my thigh and piercing it, having assumed the dire form of a worm.
Mbh.8.42.2288 I myself will gladly speak of the prowess of Phalguna in the midst of an assembly of kshatriyas.
Mbh.8.49.2717 Thou always challengest the active Phalguna in battle.
Mbh.8.50.2843 Having checked Bhimasena, thou mayst then obtain Phalguna.
Mbh.8.56.3240 Having penetrated into the midst of that car-force and those bodies of horse, Phalguna careered within those divisions like the Destroyer himself, armed with the fatal noose.
Mbh.8.56.3279 Inspired with wrath he drew deep breaths, O king, and seemed to burn with his eyes both Ashvatthama and Phalguna as he looked at them repeatedly.
Mbh.8.63.3678 Beholding those two brothers made carless, that slayer of hostile heroes, viz, their maternal uncle, the ruler of the Madras, moved by compassion, addressed the son of Radha and said, Thou art to fight today with Pritha's son Phalguna.
Mbh.8.66.3869 Have those words been unfulfilled, uttered from folly by him who, filled with pride, used to always boast in the midst of the kings for gladdening Duryodhana, saying, I will slay Phalguna?
Mbh.8.66.3884 Extinguish, O Phalguna, this fire in my heart that is born of vindictiveness and is fanned by the wind of humiliation, by telling me that thou hast slain Karna today, having encountered him in battle!
Mbh.8.68.3924 SECTION Sanjaya said, Hearing that Karna of mighty energy was still alive, Pritha's son Yudhishthira of immeasurable energy, exceedingly angry with Phalguna and burning with the shafts of Karna, said these words unto Dhananjaya, O sire, thy army is fled and hath been beaten in a way that is scarcely honourable!
Mbh.8.70.4184 Hearing, however, those harsh words of his brother Phalguna, Pandu's son, king Yudhishthira, the just, rising up from that bed on which he had been sitting, said these words unto Partha, with his heart filled with sorrow, O Partha, I have acted wickedly.
Mbh.8.71.4241 Thinking of and seeing his feats in battle, O Phalguna, I lose my energies in grief.
Mbh.8.72.4279 Thus addressed, O monarch, by the high-souled Phalguna, Krishna commanded Daruka, saying, Do all that Arjuna, that chief of Bharata's race and that foremost of all wielders of the bow, hath said
Mbh.8.72.4282 Beholding the car equipped by the high-souled Daruka, Phalguna, obtaining Yudhishthira's leave and causing the Brahmanas to perform propitiatory rites and utter benedictions on him, ascended that excellent vehicle.
Mbh.8.72.4284 After this, Phalguna proceeded towards Karna's car.
Mbh.8.74.4493 Even this, O Krishna, was the vow of that wicked-souled one about my slaughter, viz, I will not wash my feet till I slay Phalguna'
Mbh.8.79.4867 Who else, O Shalya, save myself, would proceed against Phalguna and Vasudeva that are even such?
Mbh.8.80.4916 Phalguna caused his track to be heaped up with slain elephants and steeds, and with cars broken in diverse ways, and with lifeless heroes deprived of weapons and engines and of armour, as also with arms of diverse kinds loosened from hands that held them.
Mbh.8.80.4925 Having met Bhima and held a consultation with him, Phalguna informed his brother that the arrows had been extracted from Yudhishthira's body and that the latter was perfectly well.
Mbh.8.81.4942 After this, many Kauravas, with cars and elephants and steeds, fearlessly advanced against that foremost one of Kuru's race, that chief of the Bharatas, Phalguna.
Mbh.8.81.4948 That matchless shower of weapons, some of which were hurled by the elephants with their tusks, Phalguna cut off with his broad-headed shafts and crescent-shaped arrows of great keenness.
Mbh.8.81.4958 Then Bhimasena, beholding the diadem-decked Phalguna encompassed, O bull of Bharata's race, by a large Kaurava host consisting of three kinds of forces, abandoned the small unslaughtered remnant of the Kaurava car-warriors with whom he had been engaged, and rushed impetuously, O king, to the spot where Dhananjaya's car was.
Mbh.8.84.5148 The son of the Wind-god then, addressing Phalguna, said, Behold, Nakula here is being afflicted.
Mbh.8.86.5235 Today Phalguna will not return from battle without slaying Karna.
Mbh.8.87.5329 The high-souled Phalguna, again, is devoted to truth and to morality.
Mbh.8.87.5374 Once more the ruler of the Madras said, If, O Karna, the white steeded Arjuna slays thee in battle today, I myself, on a single car, will slay both Madhava and Phalguna
Mbh.8.88.5458 Phalguna is exceedingly tired today.
Mbh.8.89.5566 He then quickly pierced Vasudeva with sixty shafts, and then Phalguna again with eight.
Mbh.8.90.5641 Bent upon winning the victory, O king, he quickly said unto his rival, Thou art slain, O Phalguna
Mbh.8.91.5806 Then Vasudeva, addressing Phalguna, that bull among men, said, O thou of great might, piercing Karna with a celestial weapon, throw him down
Mbh.8.91.5866 Then the Pandavas, beholding Karna slain by Phalguna, loudly blew their conchs.
Mbh.8.96.6130 Conversing with those two heroes, viz, Madhava and Phalguna, the king beheld Karna, that bull among men, lying on the field of battle.
Mbh.8.96.6134 He then applauded those tigers among men, Madhava and Phalguna, saying, O Govinda, today I have become king of the earth, with my brothers, in consequence of thyself of great wisdom having become my protector and lord.
Mbh.9.25.1687 Thus addressed by Krishna, Phalguna replied unto him, saying.
Mbh.9.30.2165 I do not entertain the least fear, O monarch, of either thee, or Vrikodara, the son of Pritha, or Phalguna, or Vasudeva, or all the Pancalas, or the twins, or Yuyudhana, or all the other troops thou hast!
Mbh.9.30.2236 As regards myself, I am willing to fight either Sahadeva, or Bhima, or Nakula, or Phalguna, or thee today, O bull of Bharata's race!
Mbh.9.31.2262 Neither thou nor Bhima, nor Nakula nor Sahadeva, nor Phalguna, is capable of vanquishing Duryodhana in fair fight!
Mbh.9.61.4399 If thou hadst not been the protector of Phalguna in dreadful battle, how could then this sea of troops have been capable of being vanquished?
Mbh.10.12.861 When he withdrew his heart from that purpose, I addressed the anxious and senseless Ashvatthama and said, He who is always regarded as the foremost of all human beings, that wielder of gandiva, that warrior having white steeds yoked unto his car, that hero owning the prince of apes for the device on his standard, that hero who, desirous of vanquishing in a wrestling encounter the god of gods, the blue-throated lord of Uma, gratified the great Shankara himself, that Phalguna than whom I have no dearer friend on earth, that friend to whom there is nothing that I cannot give including my very wives and children, that dear friend Partha of unstained acts, never said unto me, O brahmana, such words as these which thou hast uttered.
Mbh.12.1.44 Thus answered, Pritha once more addressed her son of broad chest and said, Fight Phalguna then, but spare my four other sons'
Mbh.12.2.83 Thus addressed by him, Drona, from partiality for Phalguna, as also from his knowledge of the wickedness of Karna, said, None but a Brahmana, who has duly observed all vows, should be acquainted with the Brahma weapon, or a Kshatriya that has practised austere penances, and no other'
Mbh.12.20.880 Devasthana said, Phalguna has told thee that there is nothing superior to wealth.
Mbh.12.41.2138 And king Yudhishthira appointed Phalguna for resisting hostile forces and chastising the wicked.
Mbh.12.52.2816 Yudhishthira said, O Phalguna of unrivalled splendour, let my foremost of cars be made ready.
Mbh.12.341.22218 Vaisampayana said, Listen, O king, to what the significances are of the diverse names, due to attributes and acts, of Hari as the puissant Hari himself of cheerful soul explained them to Phalguna.
Mbh.12.341.22219 That slayer of hostile heroes, viz, Phalguna, had at one time asked Kesava, enquiring after the imports of the some of the names by which the high-souled Keshva is adored.
Mbh.13.109.9908 He who fasts on the twelfth day of the moon in the month of Phalguna and worships Krishna as Govinda, for the whole day and night, attains to the merit of the Atiratra sacrifice and goes to the region of Soma.
Mbh.14.16.440 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by him, Krishna of mighty energy, that foremost of speakers, embraced Phalguna and replied unto him as follows.
Mbh.14.51.2256 I wish to see him again, with thy leave, O Phalguna'
Mbh.14.52.2324 Thus addressed, Phalguna, well conversant with speech, humbly approached king Yudhishthira the just and then said these words,
Mbh.14.52.2334 Do thou also think of me daily as also of Bhima, that foremost of mighty men, and of Phalguna and Nakula and Sahadeva, O giver of honours.
Mbh.14.53.2352 Phalguna repeatedly embraced the Vrishni hero, and as long as he was within the range of vision, he repeatedly turned his eyes towards him.
Mbh.14.66.2988 It behoveth thee, O Madhava, to rescue Uttara and Subhadra and Draupadi and myself, and Dharma's son Yudhishthira, and Bhima and Phalguna, and Nakula, and the irresistible Sahadeva.
Mbh.14.72.3198 Thus addressed by the Rishi, that perpetuator of Kuru's race, viz, Yudhishthira, accomplished every injunction duly and appointed Phalguna to attend to the horse'
Mbh.14.76.3322 Indeed, urged on by the king, elephant, repeatedly roaring like a cloud, rushed towards Phalguna, with that deep noise emitted from its mouth.
Mbh.14.77.3366 Indeed, when Phalguna, that foremost one among the Bharatas, was thus afflicted, those marvels were seen.
Mbh.14.78.3392 That foremost of men, Phalguna, had been thus addressed by king Yudhishthira the just, of great soul.
Mbh.14.78.3397 Having arrived at this conclusion, Phalguna, that foremost of men, then said unto those Saindhavas who were all fierce in battle, these words, I say what is for your benefit.
Mbh.14.79.3461 The righteous-souled Phalguna angrily said, This conduct of thine is not becoming.
Mbh.14.82.3704 Thus addressed by him, the son of Sahadeva said, So be it, and then duly worshipped that horse as also Phalguna, that foremost of warriors.
Mbh.14.87.3882 Repairing to the presence of the Kuru king, the intelligent envoy bowed his head in reverence and informed him of the arrival of that foremost of men, viz, Phalguna.
Mbh.14.87.3893 Listening to such words, agreeable to the ear, of the citizens, the righteous-souled Phalguna entered the sacrificial compound.
Mbh.14.88.3912 Then king Yudhishthira the just, and Bhima, and Phalguna, and the twins, each separately honoured him and made costly presents unto him.
Mbh.15.11.538 The diadem-decked Phalguna, understanding the thoughts of Bhimasena, slightly bending his face downwards, addressed that foremost of men in these words, O Bhima, our royal father who is advancing in years, has resolved to retire into the woods.
Mbh.15.11.551 Yielding to wrath, Bhimasena said these words, O Phalguna, it is we that shall make gifts in the matter of Bhishma's obsequies, as also of king Somadatta and of Bhurisravas, of the royal sage Valhika, and of the high-souled Drona, and of all others.
Mbh.15.12.570 Hearing these words of the high-souled Phalguna, the righteous-souled Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, addressed Vidura and said these words, Instructed by me, O Kshattri, do thou say unto the Kuru king that I shall give him as much wealth from my treasury as he wishes to give away for the obsequies of his song, and of Bhishma and others among his well-wishers and benefactors.
Mbh.15.15.638 Vrikodara, the heroic Phalguna, the two sons of Madri, Vidura, Sanjaya, Dhritarashtra's son by his Vaisya wife, and Kripa, and Dhaumya, and other Brahmanas, all followed the old monarch, with voices choked in grief.
Mbh.16.7.280 Phalguna, who was careful in observing every duty, having caused this duty to be performed, proceeded, O chief of Bharatas race, next to the place where the Vrishnis were slaughtered.
Mbh.17.1.61 Let your brother Phalguna proceed to the woods after casting off Gandiva, that high weapon.
Mbh.17.2.106 This Phalguna disregarded all wielders of bows.
Mbh.18.4.196 He was being adored by the heroic Phalguna, who also was endued with a blazing effulgence.
Mbh.18.5.248 Somas son of great prowess, named Varchas of mighty energy, became Abhimanyu, the son of Phalguna, that lion among men.
