MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.63.3170 Then was born the disciple of Prahlada, viz, Nagnajit, and also Suvala.
Mbh.1.65.3270 The eldest of them all was Prahlada, the next was Sahradha; the third was Anuhrada; and after him were Sivi and Vashkala.
Mbh.1.65.3271 And, O Bharata, it is known everywhere that Prahlada had three sons.
Mbh.1.67.3433 He who had been known as Samhlada, the younger brother of Prahlada, became among men the famous Salya, that bull amongst Valhikas.
Mbh.1.67.3456 He amongst the Asura who was known as Salabha the second, became on earth the monarch Prahlada in the country of the Valhikas.
Mbh.2.9.373 And Vasuki and Takshaka, and the Naga called Airavana; Krishna and Lohita; Padma and Chitra endued with great energy; the Nagas called Kamvala and Aswatara; and Dhritarashtra and Valahaka; Matimat and Kundadhara and Karkotaka and Dhananjaya; Panimat and the mighty Kundaka, O lord of the Earth; and Prahlada and Mushikada, and Janamejaya, all having auspicious marks and mandalas and extended hoods, these and many other snakes.
Mbh.2.11.435 And Daksha, Prachetas, Pulaha, Marichi, the master Kasyapa, Bhrigu, Atri, and Vasistha and Gautama, and also Angiras, and Pulastya, Kraut, Prahlada, and Kardama, these Prajapatis, and Angirasa of the Atharvan Veda, the Valikhilyas, the Marichipas; Intelligence, Space, Knowledge, Air, Heat, Water, Earth, Sound, Touch, Form, Taste, Scent; Nature, and the Modes of Nature, and the elemental and prime causes of the world, all stay in that mansion beside the lord Brahma.
Mbh.2.66.2888 The learned quote as an example in this connection the old history of Prahlada and the son of Angirasa.
Mbh.2.66.2889 There was of old a chief of the Daityas of the name Prahlada.
Mbh.2.66.2893 And after they had thus quarrelled with each other, they both made Prahlada the arbitrator to decide between them.
Mbh.2.66.2897 Frightened at this quarrel, Prahlada cast his eyes upon Sudhanwan.
Mbh.2.66.2900 And Prahlada said, Thou art, O illustrious and exalted one, fully conversant with the rules of morality that should guide both the gods and the Asuras and the Brahmanas as well.
Mbh.2.66.2912 O Prahlada, they who answer falsely those that ask them about morality destroy the meritorious acts of their seven upper and seven lower generations.
Mbh.2.66.2918 Hearing these words of Kasyapa, Prahlada told his son, Sudhanwan is superior to thee, as indeed, his father Angiras is superior to me.
Mbh.2.66.2921 At these words of Prahlada, Sudhanwan said, Since unmoved by affection for thy child, thou hast adhered to virtue, I command, let this son of thine live for a hundred years
Mbh.3.28.1284 SECTION XXVIII Draupadi continued, On this subject, the ancient story of the conversation between Prahlada and Vali, the son of Virochana, is quoted as an example.
Mbh.3.28.1285 One day Vali asked his grand-father Prahlada, the chief of the Asuras and the Danavas, possessed of great wisdom and well-versed in the mysteries of the science of duty, saying, O sire, is forgiveness meritorious or might and energy such?
Mbh.3.28.1290 And Prahlada said, Know, O child, these two truths with certainty, viz, that might is not always meritorious and forgiveness also is not always meritorious!
Mbh.3.284.13907 And the encounter that took place between that monkey and the Rakshasa hero, is desirous of defeating the other, was fierce and terrible, like that of Indra and Prahlada in days of yore.
Mbh.5.33.1601 In this connection is cited the old story about what transpired between Suyodhana and Prahlada, the chief of the Asuras in relation to the latter's son.
Mbh.5.35.1700 And asked by Virochana to share his seat Sudhanwan said, O son of Prahlada, I touch thy excellent golden seat.
Mbh.5.35.1713 Sudhanwan said, Having wagered our lives, we will approach thy father, for he, Prahlada, will never say an untruth even for the sake of his son'
Mbh.5.35.1714 Vidura continued, Having thus laid a wager, Virochana and Sudhanwan, both moved by rage, proceeded to that place where Prahlada was.
Mbh.5.35.1715 And beholding them together, Prahlada said, These two who had never before been companions, are now seen together coming hither by the same road, like two angry snakes.
Mbh.5.35.1721 Prahlada said, Let water, and honey and curds, be brought for Sudhanwan.
Mbh.5.35.1726 Prahlada, answer it truly!
Mbh.5.35.1728 Prahlada said, O Brahmana, this one is my only son.
Mbh.5.35.1732 Prahlada said, How doth that misuser of his tongue suffer, O Sudhanwan, who answereth not truly but falsely, a question that is put to him?
Mbh.5.35.1742 Prahlada said, Angiras is superior to myself, and Sudhanwan is superior to thee, O Virochana.
Mbh.5.35.1746 Sudhanwan said, Since, O Prahlada, thou hast preferred virtue and hast not, from temptation, said an untruth, I grant thy son his life that is dear to thee.
Mbh.5.35.1747 So here is thy son Virochana, O Prahlada, restored by me to thee.
Mbh.5.161.7094 O bull of Bharata's race, this sloka sung of old by Prahlada when his kingdom had been wrested from him by the gods, hath been heard by us, Ye gods, that person whose standard of righteousness is always up, but whose sins are always concealed is said to adopt the behaviour of the cat in the story'
Mbh.6.34.1604 I am Prahlada among the Daityas, and Time among things that count.
Mbh.7.105.4915 And filled with joy, they worshipped the mighty son of Marut, like the Maruts worshipping Sakra after the defeat in battle of Prahlada
Mbh.7.119.5883 upon, the battle that took place between Drona and the prince of the Panchalas was wonderful in the extreme, like that between Indra and Prahlada, both desirous of the sovereignty of the three worlds.
Mbh.7.133.6646 Indeed, those two lions among men then looked like a couple of mighty lions endued with eyes red in wrath, these two warriors endued with great energy fought on like Sakra and Virochana's son Prahlada.
Mbh.7.153.8152 Meanwhile, O king, the battle that took place between the Rakshasas and the son of Drona on that night was exceedingly terrible like that between Sakra and Prahlada in days of old.
Mbh.7.163.8832 Then commenced a battle once more between Drona's son and the Rakshasa on that night of thick darkness, which resembled the encounter between Sakra and Prahlada.
Mbh.7.171.9285 The battle then that took place between Karna and that Rakshasa, both roaring against each other, O tiger among kings, resembled that between Indra and Prahlada in days of yore'
Mbh.9.55.3929 Each longing for victory, the battle that took place between them was terrible, making the very hair stand on end, like that between Indra and Prahlada.
Mbh.12.97.5476 Having slain in battle Jambha, Vritra, Vala, Paka, Satamaya, Virochana, the irresistible Namuchi, Samvara of innumerable illusions, Viprachitti, all these sons of Diti and Danu, as also Prahlada, I myself have become the chief of the celestials'
Mbh.12.123.7023 In days of yore, the Daitya Prahlada, by the merit of his behaviour, snatched from the high-souled Indra his sovereignty and reduced the three worlds to subjection.
Mbh.12.123.7034 The omniscient Bhargava said, The high-souled Prahlada has better knowledge'
Mbh.12.123.7036 The chastiser of Paka, possessed of great intelligence, assumed the form of a Brahmana, and repairing to Prahlada, asked him, saying, I desire to hear what conduces to felicity.
Mbh.12.123.7037 Prahlada answered the Brahmana, saying, O chief of regenerate ones, I have no time, being wholly occupied in the task of ruling the three worlds, I cannot, therefore, instruct thee'
Mbh.12.123.7039 At this answer, king Prahlada.
Mbh.12.123.7043 The Brahma na duly observed towards Prahlada the conduct which a disciple should observe towards his preceptor, and began with his whole heart to do what Prahlada desired.
Mbh.12.123.7046 Prahlada, O monarch, answered the question the Brahmana asked.
Mbh.12.123.7047 Prahlada said, I do not, O regenerate one, feel any pride in consequence of my being a king, nor do I cherish any hostile feelings towards the Brahmanas.
Mbh.12.123.7060 Thus said Prahlada unto that utterer of Brahma.
Mbh.12.123.7065 Prahlada, gratified with him, said, Take what thou wishest'
Mbh.12.123.7068 At this, though delighted, Prahlada became filled with a great fear.
Mbh.12.123.7070 Wondering much, Prahlada at last said, Let it be so'
Mbh.12.123.7072 The Brahmana, having received the boon, went away, but Prahlada, O king, became penetrated by a deep anxiety and knew not what to do.
Mbh.12.123.7075 Prahlada asked the form, saying, Who art thou'
Mbh.12.123.7082 The form answered, saying, Know me, O Prahlada, for the embodiment of Righteousness.
Mbh.12.123.7084 Upon the disappearance of Righteousness, a third form, O monarch, blazing with splendour, issued out of the body of the high souled Prahlada.
Mbh.12.123.7085 Asked by Prahlada as to who he was, that form possessed of great effulgence answered, saying, Know, O chief of the Daityas, that I am Truth.
Mbh.12.123.7087 After Truth had left Prahlada, following in the wake of Righteousness, another great person issued out of Prahlada's body.
Mbh.12.123.7089 Know, O Prahlada, that live there where Truth lives'
Mbh.12.123.7090 After this one had left Prahlada, another being came out, uttering loud and deep cries.
Mbh.12.123.7091 Addressed by Prahlada, he answered, Know that I am Might.
Mbh.12.123.7097 The high-souled Prahlada, penetrated, with great fear, once more asked the goddess, saying, Where dost thou go, O goddess, O thou that dwellest amid lotuses?
Mbh.12.123.7109 Dhritarashtra said, Those means were indicated by the high-souled Prahlada while discoursing unto Indra.
Mbh.12.138.8180 Men conversant with scriptures have laid it down that trust never produces happiness Usanas himself sang two verses unto Prahlada in days of old.
Mbh.12.165.9831 They were Hiranyakasipu, and Hiranyaksha, and Virochana, and Samvara, and Viprachitti, and Prahlada, and Namuchi, and Vali.
Mbh.12.178.10704 Bhishma said, In this connection is cited the old story of the discourse between Prahlada and the sage Ajagara.
Mbh.12.178.10705 Once on a time king Prahlada of great intelligence questioned a wandering Brahmana of great intelligence and a cleansed and tranquil soul'
Mbh.12.178.10706 Prahlada said, Freed from desire, with a cleansed soul, possessed of humility and self-restraint, without desire of action, free from malice, agreeable in speech, endued with dignity and intelligence and wisdom, thou livest in simplicity like a child.
Mbh.12.178.10714 Bhishma continued, That intelligent Brahmana who was well-conversant with the duties of the world, thus questioned by Prahlada, answered him in sweet words of grave import.
Mbh.12.178.10715 Behold, O Prahlada, the origin of creatures, their growth, decay, and death, are traceable to no intelligible cause.
Mbh.12.178.10720 Behold, O Prahlada, all kinds of union have an aptitude for disunion.
Mbh.12.179.10779 It was through wisdom that Vali, Prahlada, Namuchi, and Manki, when they lost their earthly prosperity, succeeded in acquiring felicity.
Mbh.12.221.13384 Bhishma said, In this connection, O Yudhishthira, is cited the old narrative of a discourse between Prahlada and Indra.
Mbh.12.221.13385 The chief of the Daityas, viz, Prahlada, was unattached to all worldly objects.
Mbh.12.221.13399 Yet how is it, O Prahlada, that thou dost not indulge in grief?
Mbh.12.221.13401 Behold thy calamities, O Prahlada, and yet thou seemest like one that is happy and tranquil'
Mbh.12.221.13403 Prahlada said, He who is unacquainted with the origin and the destruction of all created objects, is, in consequence of such ignorance, stupefied.
Mbh.12.221.13440 Sakra said, Tell me the means, O Prahlada, by which this kind of wisdom may be attained and by which this kind of tranquillity may be made one's own.
Mbh.12.221.13442 Prahlada said, By simplicity, by heedfulness, by cleansing the Soul, by mastering the passions, and by waiting upon aged seniors, O Sakra, a person succeeds in attaining to Emancipation.
Mbh.12.226.13849 Prithu, Aila, Maya, Bhima, Naraka, Samvara, Aswagriva, Puloman, Swarbhanu, whose standard was of immeasurable height, Prahlada, Namuchi, Daksha, Vipprachitti, Virochana, Hrinisheva, Suhotra, Bhurihan, Pushavat, Vrisha, Satyepsu, Rishava, Vahu, Kapilaswa, Virupaka, Vana, Kartaswara, Vahni, Viswadanshtra, Nairiti, Sankocha, Varitaksha, Varaha, Aswa, Ruchiprabha, Viswajit, Pratirupa, Vrishanda, Vishkara, Madhu, Hiranyakasipu, the Danava Kaitabha, and many others that were Daityas and Danavas and Rakshasas, these and many more unnamed, belonging to remote and remoter ages, great Daityas and foremost of Danavas, whose names we have heard, indeed, many foremost of Daityas of former times, having gone away, leaving the Earth.
Mbh.12.327.20804 Having shaken it himself, the divine Vishnu, addressing Prahlada, said, Behold the might of Kumara!
Mbh.12.327.20806 Unable to bear this, Prahlada resolved to raise the dart.
Mbh.12.339.21928 Unto Virochana the son of Prahlada will be born a mighty son of the name of Vali.
Mbh.14.9.268 I have banished the Kalakeyas to the earth, and removed the Danavas from heaven, and have terminated the existence of Prahlada in heaven.
