MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.145 When I heard that Bhima and the other sons of Pritha Kunti accompanied by Vaisravana had arrived at that country which is inaccessible to man then, O Sanjaya, I had no hope of success.
Mbh.1.1.156 Then I heard that at the time of his departure, Pritha Kunti standing, full of sorrow, near his chariot received consolation from Krishna, then, O Sanjaya, I had no hope of success.
Mbh.1.2.530 Seeing this, the virtuous Pritha also, ever engaged in cherishing her superiors, leaving the court of her sons, followed the old couple.
Mbh.1.61.2941 And the sons of Pritha dwelt there for many years.
Mbh.1.61.2954 And Agni gave unto the son of Pritha the excellent bow Gandiva and a quiver that was inexhaustible, and a war-chariot bearing the figure of Garuda on its standard.
Mbh.1.62.2971 Why also did the two other sons of Pritha Bhima and Arjuna and the two sons of Madri Nakula and Sahadeva, themselves injured by the wretched Kurus, follow Yudhishthira who was greatly addicted to the evil habit of gambling?
Mbh.1.67.3549 He had a daughter called Pritha, who for her beauty, was unrivalled on earth.
Mbh.1.67.3554 And Pritha with all possible care gratified the wrathful Rishi with soul under complete control.
Mbh.1.67.3574 And because that hero of great fame had taken off his natural armour, therefore was he, the first son of Pritha, called Kama.
Mbh.1.95.5305 And Pandu had two jewels of wives, viz, Kunti, also called Pritha, and Madri.
Mbh.1.111.6106 And he had a daughter called Pritha, who was unrivalled for beauty on earth.
Mbh.1.111.6108 And Pritha in the house of her adoptive father was engaged in looking after the duties of hospitality to Brahmanas and other guests.
Mbh.1.111.6112 Thus addressed by the Brahmana, the amiable Kunti Pritha became curious, and in her maidenhood summoned the god Arka Sun.
Mbh.1.111.6129 And after the birth of this child, the illustrious Tapana granted unto Pritha her maidenhood and ascended to heaven.
Mbh.1.112.6144 The large-eyed daughter of Kuntibhoja, Pritha by name, was endued with beauty and every accomplishment.
Mbh.1.120.6464 O Pritha, listen to me.
Mbh.1.123.6647 The various tribes of celestials assembled together, began to offer their respectful adorations to the son of Pritha.
Mbh.1.129.6911 The eldest son of Pritha, filled with fraternal love, going unto his mother, said, after making obeisance to her, O mother, hath Bhima come?
Mbh.1.134.7186 And accordingly the intelligent son of Pritha, that foremost of all men possessing a knowledge of weapons, had no inferiority to his preceptor's son in respect of excellence.
Mbh.1.137.7334 Vidura replied, O mighty monarch, the son of Pandu and Pritha, Phalguna, clad in mail hath entered the lists.
Mbh.1.137.7336 Dhritarashtra said, O thou of soul so great, by the three fires sprung from Pritha who is even like the sacred fuel, I have, indeed, been blessed, favoured and protected'
Mbh.1.137.7349 And Drona stood, surrounded by the five brothers, the sons of Pritha, and looked like the moon in conjunction with the five-starred constellation Hasta.
Mbh.1.138.7353 That far-famed destroyer of hostile hosts, the large-eyed Karna, was born of Pritha in her maidenhood.
Mbh.1.148.7879 But, O son of Pritha, Vidura of great intelligence, knew of this danger, and, therefore, hath warned me of it beforehand.
Mbh.1.159.8311 One day, while those bulls of the Bharata race were out on their tour of mendicancy, it so happened that Bhima was at home with his mother Pritha.
Mbh.1.159.8314 Afflicted with sorrow, the amiable Pritha, addressing Bhima, said these words full of compassion.
Mbh.1.163.8483 Thus addressed by Pritha, the Brahmana with his wife became exceedingly glad and assented to Kunti's speech, which was unto them as nectar.
Mbh.1.172.8826 O tiger in Kuru's race, O son of Pritha, I also know Dharma, Vayu, Sakra, the twin Aswins, and Pandu, these six perpetuators of Kuru race, these excellent celestials and human progenitors of you all.
Mbh.1.173.8848 The Gandharva said, O son of Pritha, O foremost of all intelligent men, I will duly recite to you in full this charming narrative.
Mbh.1.188.9437 And the sons of Pritha also, of mighty arms, and the illustrious twin heroes, beholding Draupadi, were all likewise struck by the shafts of Kama.
Mbh.1.190.9506 And with that tree, the strong-armed Bhima, the son of Pritha, that grinder of foes, stood, like unto the mace-bearing king of the dead Yama armed with his fierce mace, near Arjuna that bull amongst men.
Mbh.1.190.9515 I heard that the sons of Pandu along with their mother Pritha had all escaped from the conflagration of the house of lac'
Mbh.1.190.9516 Then Halayudha of complexion like unto that of clouds uncharged with rain, addressing his younger brother Krishna, said with great satisfaction, O, I am happy to hear, as I do from sheer good fortune, that our father's sister Pritha with the foremost of the Kaurava princes have all escaped from death
Mbh.1.191.9573 Thus reflected Pritha in consequence of her affection for her offspring.
Mbh.1.192.9575 SECTION CLXLIII Swayamvara Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Then those illustrious sons of Pritha, on returning to the potter's abode, approached their mother.
Mbh.1.194.9666 From the way in which the mark was shot down by that youth, and the strength with which the bow was strung by him, and the manner in which I have heard them talk with one another proves conclusively, O monarch, that they are the sons of Pritha wandering in disguise'
Mbh.1.200.9942 Pritha, out of affection, pronounced a blessing upon her daughter-in-law endued with great beauty and every auspicious mark and possessed of a sweet disposition and good character, saying, Be thou unto thy husband as Sachi unto Indra, Swaha unto Vibhavasu, Rohini unto Soma, Damayanti unto Nala, Bhadra unto Vaisravana, Arundhati unto Vasishtha, Lakshmi unto Narayana!
Mbh.1.201.9975 Beholding the mighty sons of Pritha, escaped from the burning house of lac and allied with Drupada, and thinking of Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandin and the other sons of Drupada all accomplished in fight, they were struck with fear and overcome with despair.
Mbh.1.206.10188 Hearing that the sons of Pritha are alive, the citizens and other subjects of the realm have become exceedingly glad and eager for beholding them.
Mbh.1.207.10198 From sheer good fortune the sons of Pritha are alive; and from good fortune alone those mighty car-warriors have obtained the daughter of Drupada.
Mbh.1.207.10220 They as well as Pritha must be very eager to behold their city.
Mbh.1.210.10318 SECTION CCXI Rajya-labha Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Hearing these words of Yudhishthira, Narada replied, O son of Pritha, listen with thy brothers to me as I recite this old story, O Yudhishthira, exactly as everything happened.
Mbh.1.214.10471 And Krishna became obedient unto all the five sons of Pritha, those lions among men, of immeasurable energy.
Mbh.1.221.10762 O Achyuta, it was for thy sake that the son of Pritha had been welcomed and honoured by us.
Mbh.1.222.10808 The celebrated Bhadra of large and slightly red eyes first worshipped Pritha.
Mbh.1.229.11231 As the merciful son of Pritha said unto Maya that there was nothing to fear, he of the Dasarha race no longer desired to slay Maya who was the brother of Namuchi, and Agni also burned him not'
Mbh.2.1.29 Agreeably to the wishes of both Krishna and the sons of Pritha, the illustrious Danava of great prowess, having performed on an auspicious day the initial propitiatory rites of foundation and having also gratified thousands of well-versed Brahmanas with sweetened milk and rice and with rich presents of various kinds, measured out a plot of land five thousand cubits square, which was delightful and exceedingly handsome to behold and which was favourable for construction of a building well-suited to the exigencies of every season
Mbh.2.2.30 SECTION II Vaisampayana said, Janardana deserving the worship of all, having lived happily at Khandavaprastha for some time, and having been treated all the while with respectful love and affection by the sons of Pritha, became desirous one day of leaving Khandavaprastha to behold his father.
Mbh.2.2.31 That possessor of large eyes, unto whom was due the obeisance of the universe, then saluted both Yudhishthira and Pritha and made obeisance with his head unto the feet of Kunti, his father's sister.
Mbh.2.2.32 Thus revered by Kesava, Pritha smelt his head and embraced him.
Mbh.2.2.58 Those bulls among men, the sons of Pritha, with minds fixed on Govinda, desisted from following him further and unwillingly returned to their own city in haste.
Mbh.2.5.200 Cherishest thou, O son of Pritha, with paternal affection the foe that hath been weakened, or him also that hath sought thy shelter, having been vanquished in battle?
Mbh.2.5.205 O son of Pritha, seekest thou to conquer thy incensed foes that are slaves to their passions, having first conquered thy own soul and obtained the mastery over thy own senses?
Mbh.2.5.242 O son of Pritha, seekest thou to cure bodily diseases by medicines and fasts, and mental illness with the advice of the aged?
Mbh.2.7.319 There sitteth in that assembly room, O son of Pritha, on an excellent seat, the Lord of celestials, with his wife Sachi endowed with beauty and affluence.
Mbh.2.7.324 And O son of Pritha, the celestial Rishis also, all of pure souls, with sins completely washed off and resplendent as the fire, and possessed of energy, and without sorrow of any kind, and freed from the fever of anxiety, and all performers of the Soma sacrifice, also wait upon and worship Indra.
Mbh.2.8.336 SECTION VIII Narada said, O Yudhisthira, I shall now describe the assembly house of Yama, the son of Vivaswat, which, O son of Pritha, was built by Viswakarma.
Mbh.2.8.353 O son of Pritha, the delightful assembly house, moving everywhere at the will of its owner, is of wide extent.
Mbh.2.8.358 And, O son of Pritha, excellent perfumes, and sweet sounds and garlands of celestial flowers always contribute towards making that mansion supremely blest.
Mbh.2.12.501 Vaisampayana said, O Janamejaya, having said this unto the son of Pritha, Narada went away, accompanied by those Rishis with whom he had come.
Mbh.2.13.551 Reflecting upon his god-like feats the son of Pandu concluded that there was nothing that was unknown to him, nothing that he could not achieve, and nothing that he could not bear, and Yudhishthira, the son of Pritha, having come to this settled resolution soon sent a messenger unto that master of all beings, conveying through him blessings and speeches such as one senior in age might send to one that is younger.
Mbh.2.13.553 And Achyuta Krishna hearing that the son of Pritha had become desirous of seeing him, desired to see his cousin.
Mbh.2.15.690 How can, O son of Pritha, any weak monarch approach him with hostile intentions?
Mbh.2.20.890 For the accomplishment of one's purpose let, therefore, Arjuna, the son of Pritha, follow Krishna the foremost of the Yadavas and let Bhima follow Arjuna.
Mbh.2.24.1115 And the strong-armed and illustrious son of Jarasandha, thus installed on the throne by those most exalted of men and having obtained the friendship of Krishna and treated with respect and kindness by the two sons of Pritha, re-entered the city of his father.
Mbh.2.24.1116 And that bull amongst men, Krishna, accompanied by the sons of Pritha and graced with great good fortune, left the city of Magadha, laden with numerous jewels.
Mbh.2.24.1125 And, O Bharata, that chastiser of all foes having thus caused Jarasandha to be slain, took leave of Yudhishthira and Pritha, and Draupadi and Subhadra, and Bhimasena and Arjuna and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva.
Mbh.2.25.1136 Victory, O son of Pritha, will surely be thine, and thou wilt surely obtain thy desires fulfilled.
Mbh.2.26.1171 Indeed, the fight that took place between them and the son of Pritha was equal to that between the gods and the Asuras in which Taraka the wife of Vrihaspati had become the cause of so much slaughter.
Mbh.2.27.1180 Thereupon certain frontier-guards of huge bodies and endued with great strength and energy, coming to him with gallant hearts, said, O son of Pritha, this country can be never conquered by thee.
Mbh.2.28.1211 And that chastiser of all foes then received the son of Pritha with respect.
Mbh.2.44.1832 The virtuous Hari of worldwide fame, thus addressed by Yudhishthira, cheerfully went with his cousin to Pritha and said, O aunt, thy sons have now obtained the imperial dignity.
Mbh.2.46.1910 Duryodhana replied, O uncle, beholding this whole earth owning the sway of Yudhishthira in consequence of the might of the illustrious Arjuna's weapons and beholding also that sacrifice of the son of Pritha like unto the sacrifice of Sakra himself of great glory among the celestials, I, being filled with jealousy and burning day and night, am being dried up like a shallow tank in the summer season.
Mbh.2.46.1927 Behold, the sons of Dhritarashtra are decaying and the sons of Pritha are growing day by day.
Mbh.2.48.1995 And Vasudeva at the conclusion of the sacrifice having brought an excellent conch bathed the Sun of Pritha with sea water brought in thousand jars of gold, all well adorned with numerous gems.
Mbh.2.52.2195 And beholding, O exalted one, such prosperity, in the son of Pritha which is even like that which Harishchandra had, I do not see the least good in continuing to live, O Bharata!
Mbh.2.57.2325 Repairing thither, O son of Pritha, with thy brothers, enjoy ye in that mansion and sit to a friendly match at dice.
Mbh.2.57.2353 And that slayer of hostile heroes, the son of Pandu and Pritha, riding upon the car that had been given him by the king of Valhika, and attired also in royal robes, set out with his brothers.
Mbh.2.58.2375 SECTION LVIII Vaisampayana said, The sons of Pritha with Yudhishthira at their head, having entered that assembly house, approached all the kings that were present there.
Mbh.2.58.2387 O son of Pritha, it is the staking at dice, which may be lost or won that may injure us.
Mbh.2.61.2494 Go not, O king, unto the region of Yama, with thy sons and troops, for who is there that is capable of fighting with the sons of Pritha, together?
Mbh.2.65.2681 The sons of Pritha never use words such as these.
Mbh.2.69.2992 And, O princess, all the sons of Dhritarashtra and not the sons of Pritha are now thy masters.
Mbh.2.69.2999 Alas, doth not the son of Pritha regards life, prowess and manhood as of no use that he offereth this daughter of Drupada, the king of Panchala, in the presence of all this assembly, as a stake at dice
Mbh.2.73.3144 O bull of the Bharata race, who is there that will provoke the peaceful sons of Pritha?
Mbh.2.74.3161 SECTION LXXV Vaisampayana said, The royal messenger, agreeably to the commands of the intelligent king Dhritarashtra, coming upon Yudhishthira, the son of Pritha who had by that time gone a great way, addressed the monarch and said, Even these are the words of thy father-like uncle, O Bharata, spoken unto thee, The assembly is ready.
Mbh.2.74.3170 And knowing full well the deception practised by Sakuni, the son of Pritha came back to sit at dice with him again.
Mbh.2.74.3190 The son of Pritha, however, accepted it and Sakuni took up the dice.
Mbh.2.75.3192 SECTION LXXVI Vaisampayana said, Then the vanquished sons of Pritha prepared for their exile into the woods.
Mbh.2.75.3198 The sons of Pritha have all been plunged by us into everlasting hell.
Mbh.2.75.3204 The wise Yajnasena of the Somake race, having bestowed his daughter, the princess of Panchala, on the sons of Pandu, acted most unfortunately for the husbands of Yajnaseni, these sons of Pritha are as eunuchs.
Mbh.2.75.3221 I tell thee that if Vrikodara, the son of Pritha, drinketh not thy life-blood, piercing open thy breast in battle, let him not attain to regions of blessedness, I tell thee truly that by slaying the sons of Dhritarashtra in battle, before the very eyes of all the warriors, I shall pacify this wrath of mine soon enough
Mbh.2.76.3246 Vidura then said, The reverend Pritha is a princess by birth.
Mbh.2.77.3277 SECTION LXXVIII Vaisampayana said, Then when Draupadi was about to set out she went unto the illustrious Pritha and solicited her leave.
Mbh.2.77.3293 And as she went away weeping and wailing Pritha herself in grief followed her.
Mbh.3.1.4 Janamejaya said, O thou foremost of regenerate ones, deceitfully defeated at dice by the sons of Dhritarashtra and their counsellors, incensed by those wicked ones that thus brought about a fierce animosity, and addressed in language that was so cruel, what did the Kuru princes, my ancestors, the sons of Pritha, then do?
Mbh.3.1.5 How also did the sons of Pritha, equal unto Sakra in prowess, deprived of affluence and suddenly over whelmed with misery, pass their days in the forest?
Mbh.3.1.12 Vaisampayana said, Thus defeated at dice and incensed by the wicked sons of Dhritarashtra and their counsellors, the sons of Pritha set out from Hastinapura.
Mbh.3.3.194 I will tell thee everything in detail, And, O illustrious one, listen to the one hundred and eight names of the sun as they were disclosed of old by Dhaumya to the high-souled son of Pritha.
Mbh.3.3.276 And obedient to their priest, the sons of Pritha, on auspicious lunar days and constellations and conjunctions, performed sacrifices according to the ordinance, the scriptures, and the Mantras.
Mbh.3.4.321 And Vidura, saying This race is doomed' went away to where the sons of Pritha were
Mbh.3.7.388 If ever I behold the sons of Pritha return to the city, I shall again be emaciated by renouncing food and drink, even though there be no obstacle in my path!
Mbh.3.9.466 How may they save their lives, how may they thrive such thoughts regarding the distressed sons of Pritha continually agitate my soul!
Mbh.3.12.594 And the consanguineous relatives of Panchala, and Dhrishtaketu the king of Chedi, and those celebrated and powerful brothers, the Kaikeyas, their hearts fired with wrath, went to the forest to see the sons of Pritha.
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.3.23.1150 And bidding farewell unto the son of Pritha, and Vrikodara, and Dhananjaya and Yajnaseni, and the twins, and commanded by Yudhishthira, they returned to their respective abodes in the kingdom with heavy hearts
Mbh.3.25.1193 O son of Pritha, I beheld him in days of old ranging with his bow on the top of the Rishyamuka hills!
Mbh.3.25.1203 O best of men, O son of Pritha, the seven righteous Rishis, for having observed the ordinance prescribed by the Creator himself in the Vedas, blaze in the firmament.
Mbh.3.25.1209 O son of Pritha, in truth, and virtue, and proper behaviour, and modesty, thou hast surpassed all creatures, and thy fame and energy are as bright as fire or the Sun!
Mbh.3.26.1215 And the Vedic recitations of the Brahmanas mingling with the twang of bows of the sons of Pritha, produced a union of the Brahmana and Kshatriya customs that was highly beautiful.
Mbh.3.26.1216 And one evening the Rishi Vaka of the Dalvya family addressed Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti seated in the midst of the Rishis, saying, Behold, O chief of the Kurus, O son of Pritha, the homa time is come of these Brahmanas devoted to ascetic austerities, the time when the sacred fires have all been lit up!
Mbh.3.27.1239 SECTION XXVII Vaisampayana said, Exiled to the woods the sons of Pritha with Krishna seated in the evening, conversed with one another afflicted with sorrow and grief.
Mbh.3.27.1269 I grieve, O Bharata, that thy wrath doth not blaze up at sight of that son of Pritha in exile, that prince who deserveth not such distress and who hath been brought up in every luxury!
Mbh.3.27.1280 That Kshatriya, O son of Pritha, who discovereth not his energy when the opportunity cometh, is ever disregarded by all creatures!
Mbh.3.30.1433 O son of Pritha, thou ever worshippest Brahmanas, and gods, and the Pitris, with Swadhas, and other forms of worship!
Mbh.3.30.1434 O son of Pritha, thou hast ever gratified the Brahmanas by fulfilling every wish of theirs!
Mbh.3.32.1534 SECTION XXXII Draupadi said, I do not ever disregard or slander religion, O son of Pritha!
Mbh.3.32.1558 And, O son of Pritha, whatever of good fortune a person obtaineth in consequence of religious rites, that is called providential.
Mbh.3.33.1709 Destroy the might of Dhritarashtra's sons, O son of Pritha, with my and Arjuna's aid.
Mbh.3.35.1818 This son of Pritha, called Vibhatsu, is foremost in drawing the bow-string.
Mbh.3.35.1837 O son of Pritha, known as thou art over whole earth, thou wilt not be able to live unknown, like the sun that can never course through the sky unknown to men.
Mbh.3.35.1840 How, O son of Pritha, will Krishna, the daughter of Drupada, a princess and mother of heroes, of virtuous deeds and known over all the world, live unknown?
Mbh.3.36.1885 That foremost of speakers then, the son of Parasara, taking Yudhishthira to a corner, began to address him in words of deep import, saying, O best of the Bharatas, the time is come for thy prosperity, when, indeed Dhananjaya, that son of Pritha, will slay all thy foes in battle.
Mbh.3.37.1910 The whole earth, besides, is now under Duryodhana's sway, with all the villages and towns, O son of Pritha, and all the seas and woods and mines!
Mbh.3.37.1938 If, however, O son of Pritha, thou stayest away for any length of time, we shall derive no pleasure from our enjoyments or from wealth.
Mbh.3.37.1940 O son of Pritha, our weal, and woe, life and death, our kingdom and prosperity, are all dependent on thee.
Mbh.3.38.1992 Even the hearts of those lions among men, the brave sons of Pritha, trembled in consequence of wonder and joy and a sense of their own inferiority.
Mbh.3.39.2092 The mighty son of Pritha then, his mouth smoking with wrath, struck the invincible god in the form of a Kirata, with hi clenched fists, blows that descended like thunderbolts.
Mbh.3.40.2143 Even this Gandiva is that bow, O son of Pritha, fit for thy hands.
Mbh.3.40.2145 This couple of quivers, fit for thee, will again be inexhaustible, O son of Pritha!
Mbh.3.40.2157 But, O son of Pritha, this weapon should not be hurled without adequate cause; for if hurled at any foe of little might it may destroy the whole universe.
Mbh.3.40.2160 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words, the son of Pritha purified himself.
Mbh.3.41.2181 And while the son of Pritha, endued with immeasurable energy, was thinking thus, there came to that place Varuna the god of waters, handsome and of the splendour of the lapis lazuli accompanied by all kinds of aquatic creatures, and filling all the points of the horizon with a blazing effulgence.
Mbh.3.41.2204 Vaisampayana continued, O Janamejaya, the son of Pritha then received from Yama that weapon duly, along with the Mantras and rite, and the mysteries of hurling and withdrawing it.
Mbh.3.41.2205 Then Varuna, the lord of all aquatic creatures, blue as the clouds, from a summit he had occupied on the west, uttered these words, O son of Pritha, thou art the foremost of Kshatriyas, and engaged in Kshatriya practices.
Mbh.3.42.2247 And beholding a charioteer decked in gold seated on that car, the mighty-armed son of Pritha regarded it as belonging to the celestials.
Mbh.3.42.2282 And Matali also gladly replied unto him, saying, These, O son of Pritha, are virtuous persons stationed in their respective places.
Mbh.3.43.2302 The strong-armed son of Pritha then heard around him the music of conchs and drums.
Mbh.3.43.2303 And praised all around, the son of Pritha then went, at the command of Indra, to that large and extensive starry way called by the name of Suravithi.
Mbh.3.43.2306 Then the strong-armed son of Pritha, alighting from the car approached the lord himself of the gods, his father, that chastiser of Paka.
Mbh.3.44.2322 SECTION XLIV Vaisampayana said, The gods and the Gandharvas then, understanding the wishes of India, procured an excellent Arghya and reverenced the son of Pritha in a hurry.
Mbh.3.44.2333 And the son of Pritha lived happily in peace with Chitrasena.
Mbh.3.46.2368 But, O monarch, upon beholding her at night in his mansion, Arjuna, with a fearstricken heart, stepped up to receive her with respect and as soon as he saw her, the son of Pritha, from modesty, closed his eyes.
Mbh.3.46.2381 Then, O son of Pritha, thou hadst looked on me only with a steadfast gaze.
Mbh.3.46.2388 Even these, O son of Pritha, were his words.
Mbh.3.46.2423 And Harivahana, calling his son unto himself in private, and consoling him in sweet words, smilingly said, O thou best of beings, having obtained thee, O child, Pritha hath to-day become a truly blessed mother.
Mbh.3.51.2546 The mighty warriors of the Vrishnis also, and the Panchalas of great energy, and the sons of Pritha themselves, led by Vasudeva of unbaffled prowess, will blast my legions.
Mbh.3.51.2559 And even Krishna himself beholding the sons of Pritha dressed in deer skins, became filled with rage, and addressing Yudhishthira, said, That prosperity which the sons of Pritha had acquired at Indraprastha, and which, unobtainable by other kings, was beheld by me at the Rajasuya sacrifice, at which, besides, I saw all kings, even those of the Vangas and Angas and Paundras and Odras and Cholas and Dravidas and Andhakas, and the chiefs of many islands and countries on the sea-board as also of frontier states, including the rulers of the Sinhalas, the barbarous mlecchas, the natives of Lanka, and all the kings of the West by hundreds, and all the chiefs of the sea-coast, and the kings of the Pahlavas and the Daradas and the various tribes of the Kiratas and Yavanas and Sakras and the Harahunas and Chinas and Tukharas and the Sindhavas and the Jagudas and the Ramathas and the Mundas and the inhabitants of the kingdom of women and the Tanganas and the Kekayas and the Malavas and the inhabitants of Kasmira, afraid of the prowess of your weapons, present in obedience to your invitation, performing various offices, that prosperity, O king, so unstable and waiting at present on the foe, I shall restore to thee, depriving thy foe of his very life.
Mbh.3.52.2626 But, O son of Pritha, as for thy assertion, O Lord, the time is complete, I cannot dare tell an untruth, for untruth is not in me.
Mbh.3.79.3911 And Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha, engaged in ascetic austerities with regulated vows and fixed mind and observing the vow of perfect silence, was, he heard, like the blazing god of justice himself in his embodied form.
Mbh.3.81.3941 And Yajnaseni in obedience to the dictates of morality adhered to her lords, the sons of Pritha, like Savitri to the Vedas or the rays of the Sun to the peak of Meru.
Mbh.3.85.4729 Thou wilt, O son of Pritha, obtain merit consisting of the eight attributes, even like that which Bhishma, the foremost of the Kurus, had obtained of yore.
Mbh.3.90.4874 In that region also, O son of Pritha, is the river Saraswati, which is ever worshipped by the god, where, in days of yore, the Valikhilyas, O great king, performed sacrifices.
Mbh.3.91.4905 At the request, therefore, of Indra as also of the high-souled son of Pritha have I come hither with speed, desiring to see thee with thy younger brothers.
Mbh.3.94.4996 Lomasa said, Grieve not ever, O king, O son of Pritha, that sinful men should often prosper in consequence of the sins they commit.
Mbh.3.118.6076 And they also in return paid honour to all the sons of Pritha, and were similarly honoured by Pandu's sons.
Mbh.3.119.6090 This son of Pritha would give up his kingdom and his pleasure but would not swerve from the righteous path, in order to thrive.
Mbh.3.119.6091 How is it that Bhishma and Kripa and the Brahmana Drona and the aged king, the senior member of the house, are living happily, after having banished the sons of Pritha?
Mbh.3.120.6120 How is it that when the sons of Pritha have for their patrons these two men, Rama and Krishna, and the two others, Pradyumna and Samva, together with myself, these patrons being able to protect all the three worlds, how is it that the son of Pritha is living in the wood with his brothers?
Mbh.3.120.6125 Arjuna, the son of Pritha, is my brother, and also my friend, and also my preceptor, and is like the second self of Krishna.
Mbh.3.139.7074 Therefore, O son of Pritha, do thou concentrate thy thoughts.
Mbh.3.140.7146 Distressed for I am I do not see that son of Pritha, Dhananjaya, born under the influence of the star Phalguni; ranging amidst foes even like Yama at the time of the universal dissolution; possessed of the prowess of an elephant with the temporal juice trickling down; endued with leonine shoulders; not inferior to Sakra himself in prowess and energy; elder in years to the twins; of white steeds; unrivalled in heroism; invincible; and wielding a strong bow.
Mbh.3.143.7298 And finding that exhausted poor lady restored to her senses, the sons of Pritha, placing her on deer-skin, caused her to take rest.
Mbh.3.145.7367 And neither exhaustion, nor langour, neither fear nor confusion, ever possessed the son of Pritha and the offspring of Vayu wind.
Mbh.3.149.7675 And when the king justly punisheth and showeth favour, the dignity of the law is well maintained, O son of Pritha, thus have I expounded, unto thee the hard duties of kings difficult to comprehend.
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.3.159.8070 And neither exhaustion, nor fatigue, nor lassitude, nor the malice of others, affected that son of Pritha and the Wind-god.
Mbh.3.176.8773 Addicted to hunting as their chief occupation, the sons of Pritha peacefully dwelt in that forest for one year.
Mbh.3.182.9014 And Krishna, when united with Arjuna, the son of Pritha, the winner of riches and the terror of the demons assumed a beauty comparable to that of Siva, the magnanimous lord of all created beings, when he, the mighty lord, is united with Kartikeya his son.
Mbh.3.182.9017 And Krishna, the slayer of Madhu, having paid his respects in the prescribed form to the son of Pritha, and to the priest, and seating himself with them there, spoke to king Yudhishthira, in words of praise.
Mbh.3.182.9021 You take no delight in sensual pleasures; you do not act, O lord of men, from motives of enjoyment, nor do you swerve from virtue from greed of riches; it is for this, you have been named the Virtuous King, O son of Pritha!
Mbh.3.182.9050 The sons of Pandu swerve not from the path of truth, for the sons of Pritha with their charity and their piety with their people and their wives and with their relations have their protector in thee
Mbh.3.186.9244 O son of Pritha, Manu then taking it out of the Ganga, carried it to the sea and consigned it there.
Mbh.3.187.9314 O son of Pritha, then sacrifices and gifts and vows, instead of being performed by principals are suffered to be performed by representatives!
Mbh.3.188.9507 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed, the sons of Pritha and those bulls among men, the twins, along with Draupadi, all bowed down unto Janardana.
Mbh.3.199.10123 O son of Pritha, the sacred fires do not receive such gratification from libations of clarified butter, from offerings of flowers and sandal and other perfumed pastes as from the entertainment of guests.
Mbh.3.199.10234 O son of Pritha, that spot, be it a wood or pasture land, where learned Brahmanas reside, hath been called a city.
Mbh.3.231.11751 Ever fearing to utter what is evil or false, or to look or sit or walk with impropriety, or cast glances indicative of the feelings of the heart, do I serve the sons of Pritha, those mighty warriors blazing like the sun or fire, and handsome as the moon, those endued with fierce energy and prowess, and capable of slaying their foes by a glance of the eye.
Mbh.3.234.11842 SECTION CCXXXIV Ghosha-yatra Parva Janamejaya said, While those foremost of men, the sons of Pritha, were passing their days in the forest exposed to the inclemencies of the winter, the summer, the wind and the sun, what did they do, O Brahmana, after they had reached the lake and woods going by the name of Dwaita
Mbh.3.240.12060 Ye sons of Pritha, follow them!
Mbh.3.249.12308 Do not undo this graceful act done by the sons of Pritha, by indulging in such grief.
Mbh.3.249.12312 Give back unto the sons of Pritha their kingdom, and win thou both virtue and renown by such conduct.
Mbh.3.250.12394 O lord of men, I swear by my weapon that when the three and ten years shall have passed away, I will bring the sons of Pritha under thy subjection'
Mbh.3.251.12401 SECTION CCLI Janamejaya said, When the high-souled sons of Pritha were living in the forest, what did those foremost of men and mighty archers, the sons of Dhritarashtra, do?
Mbh.3.255.12545 When, however, the sons of Pritha shall have been slain in battle and thou wilt have completed the Rajasuya sacrifice, once again, O lord of men, shall I honour thee thus'
Mbh.3.261.12843 Seeing them absorbed in such reflections and breathing long deep sighs at frequent intervals, the illustrious Krishna suddenly appeared to them and addressed them these words: Knowing, ye sons of Pritha, your danger from that wrathful Rishi, I was implored by Draupadi to come, and therefore have I come here speedily.
Mbh.3.261.12849 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing Kesava's words, the sons of Pritha, with Draupadi, became easy in mind.
Mbh.3.265.12906 She is the much esteemed and beloved and chaste wife of the sons of Pritha.
Mbh.3.265.12922 For it becomes not thee to have any regard for the miserable sons of Pritha who are living in the woods, whose energies have been paralysed, whose kingdom hath been snatched and whose fortunes are at the lowest ebb.
Mbh.3.266.12960 As I have never been false to my worthy lords even in thought, so by that merit shall I now have the pleasure of beholding thee vanquished and dragged by the sons of Pritha.
Mbh.3.267.12993 Do not weep for her, O timid girl, for know thou that Krishna will come back this very day, and the sons of Pritha, having slain their foes, will again be united with Yagnaseni'
Mbh.3.268.13046 Vaisampayana continued, Then those five sons of Pritha, each like unto Indra, filled with wrath, leaving the panic-stricken infantry alone who were imploring them for mercy, rushed furiously upon the charioteers, attacking them on all sides and darkening the very air with the thick shower of arrows they shot
Mbh.3.269.13109 Although addressed by the sons of Pritha thus, the monarch of Sindhu did not even once turn round.
Mbh.3.270.13213 He is, therefore, invincible; the very gods cannot resist his power, still less can one with human attributes vanquish the son of Pritha in battle!
Mbh.3.285.13955 The battle then, O son of Pritha, that took place between those two younger brothers of Dushana on the one hand and the intelligent Lakshmana on the other, was exceedingly furious and made the bristles of the spectators stand on end.
Mbh.3.286.13985 And hurled in wrath by Angada for the destruction of Indrajit, that tree, O son of Pritha, destroyed Indrajit's chariot along with his horses and charioteer.
Mbh.3.287.14003 And beholding Rama the descendant of Ikshwaku's race, quite at his ease, Vibhishana, O son of Pritha, joining his hands; told him these words, O chastiser of foes, at the command of the king of the Guhyakas, a Guhyaka hath come from the White mountains, bringing with him his water
Mbh.3.297.14697 Thus, O son of Pritha, did Savitri raise from pitiable plight to high fortune, herself, and her father and mother, her father-in-law and mother-in-law, as also the race of her husband.
Mbh.3.301.14820 And he again said unto him, O thou of great wisdom, I have an illustrious daughter named Pritha.
Mbh.3.301.14824 And having said this to that Brahmana and duly paid him homage, the king went to his daughter Pritha of large eyes, and spake thus unto her, O child, this eminently pious Brahmana is desirous of dwelling in my house!
Mbh.3.301.14838 Thou art, O Pritha, a girl and has been adopted as my daughter.
Mbh.3.301.14846 But thou, O Pritha, art born in a royal race, and thy beauty also is extraordinary.
Mbh.3.301.14848 Do thou, therefore, O damsel, renouncing pride and haughtiness and a sense of self-importance, wait upon and worship the boon-giving Brahmana, and thereby attain, O Pritha, to an auspicious state!
Mbh.3.302.14869 And having said this the illustrious Kuntibhoja, who was devoted to the Brahmanas, made over the girl Pritha to that Brahmana, saying, This my daughter, O Brahmana, is of tender age and brought up in luxury.
Mbh.3.303.14886 And, O king, even when the Brahmana reproved her, finding fault with any of her arrangements, or addressed her in harsh words, Pritha did not do anything that was disagreeable to him.
Mbh.3.303.14889 But on all those occasions saying, All is ready, Pritha held before him the fare.
Mbh.3.303.14896 And when after a full year that best of ascetics was unable to find any fault whatever in Pritha, who was engaged in ministering unto him, well-pleased he said unto her, O gentle maid, I have been well-pleased with thy attentions, O beautiful girl!
Mbh.3.303.14910 And the monarch then treated his daughter Pritha with proper regard
Mbh.3.306.15007 SECTION CCCVI Vaisampayana said, It was, O lord of earth, on the first day of the lighted fortnight during the tenth month of the year that Pritha conceived a son like the lord himself of the stars in the firmament.
Mbh.3.306.15031 O king, having thus bewailed long and piteously, Pritha laid the basket on the waters of the river Aswa.
Mbh.3.307.15056 And Pritha learnt through spies that her own son clad in celestial mail was growing up amongst the Angas as the eldest son of a charioteer Adhiratha.
Mbh.3.307.15061 And after having contracted a friendship with Dhritarashtra's son, he became intent on injuring the sons of Pritha.
Mbh.3.308.15120 And the sons of Pritha, on the other hand, learning that such plight had befallen the son of the charioteer, were filled with joy
Mbh.3.310.15183 Thus forbidden, the son of Pritha said, Do thou forbid me by appearing before me!
Mbh.3.310.15188 Thereupon, the invisible Yaksha said, What need of all this trouble, O son of Pritha?
Mbh.3.311.15276 O son of Pritha, act not rashly!
Mbh.4.10.388 O foremost of men, I intend now to live beside thee, for I do not know where those lions among kings, the sons of Pritha, are.
Mbh.4.14.528 SECTION XIV Kichaka-badha Parva Vaisampayana said, Living in such disguise, those mighty warriors, the sons of Pritha, passed ten months in Matsya's city.
Mbh.4.19.784 Beholding that son of Pritha who in virtue, heroism and truth, was the most admired in the world, now living in the guise of a woman, my heart is afflicted with sorrow.
Mbh.4.19.805 O son of Pritha, afflicted as I am with all these hundred kinds of misery on account of Yudhishthira, why dost thou, O chastiser of foes, yet deem me happy?
Mbh.4.20.833 That the mighty-armed and terrible bowman, Dhananjaya the son of Pritha, should now live like a fire that hath been put out, maketh me think of all this as attributable to Destiny.
Mbh.4.20.834 Surely, O son of Pritha, it is impossible for men to understand the destinies of creatures in this world.
Mbh.4.25.1130 O slayer of foes, the charioteers reached Dwaravati without the sons of Pritha among them.
Mbh.4.27.1163 Why, then, should not Yudhishthira the son of Pritha possessing a knowledge of policy, be able to restore the prosperity of his brothers who are so obedient and devoted and high-souled?
Mbh.4.27.1170 Intelligent and possessed of every virtue, devoted to truth and versed in the principles of policy, endued with purity and holiness, and the embodiment of immeasurable energy, the son of Pritha is capable of consuming his foes by a glance alone of his eyes.
Mbh.4.28.1205 O child, that son of Pritha in whom are intelligence and charity, the highest tranquillity and undoubted forgiveness, modesty and prosperity, and fame and great energy and a love for all creatures, is incapable of being found out now that he hath concealed himself even by Brahmanas, let alone ordinary persons.
Mbh.4.29.1216 When their promised term of exile is over, the illustrious and mighty sons of Pritha, endued with immeasurable prowess, will come hither bursting with energy.
Mbh.4.31.1275 Hearing these words of the king, Satanika, O monarch, immediately ordered cars for those sons of Pritha, viz, the royal Yudhishthira, and Bhima, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and commanded by the king, the charioteers, with cheerful hearts and keeping loyalty in view, very soon got cars ready for the Pandavas.
Mbh.4.31.1277 And mounted on cars yoked with good steeds, those smiters of hostile ranks, those foremost of men, the sons of Pritha, set out with cheerful hearts.
Mbh.4.37.1470 And the faultless and auspicious daughter of Virata, of fine teeth and slender-waist, of thighs close unto each other and each like the trunk of an elephant, her person embellished with an excellent garland, sought the son of Pritha like a she-elephant seeking her mate.
Mbh.4.38.1556 It is Uttara who must have come out of the city, having, without doubt, made as a charioteer Arjuna, the son of Pritha, now living in disguise.
Mbh.4.38.1567 And the son of Pritha then addressed the affrighted prince who had nearly lost his senses, saying, If, O chastiser of foes, thou dost not venture to fight with enemy, come thou and hold the reins of the steeds as I fight with the foe.
Mbh.4.38.1574 And then the son of Pritha, that foremost of smiters, raised on the car that fainting and reluctant prince stricken with fear
Mbh.4.39.1585 This mighty bowman, this foremost of all wielders of weapons, this hero that hath come in the habit of a person of the third sex, is the son of Pritha.
Mbh.4.39.1589 This chastiser of foes is the valiant son of Pritha surnamed Savyasachin.
Mbh.4.39.1594 It is said that the lord Mahadeva himself, disguised in the attire of a hunter, was gratified by this son of Pritha in battle on the mountains of Himavat'
Mbh.4.43.1650 This other bow of handsome sides and golden handle is Bhima's with which that son of Pritha, that chastiser of foes, had conquered the whole of the eastern regions.
Mbh.4.44.1667 But where are that Arjuna, the son of Pritha, and Yudhishthira of the Kuru race, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Bhimasena, the sons of Pandu?
Mbh.4.49.1911 Let Drona and Duryodhana and Bhishma and thyself and Drona's son and ourselves, all fight with the son of Pritha.
Mbh.4.49.1913 If we six car-warriors be united, we can then be a match for and fight with that son of Pritha who is resolved to fight and who is as fierce as the wielder of the thunderbolt.
Mbh.4.52.2000 The sons of Pritha would prefer death to falsehood.
Mbh.4.53.2029 Possessed of car and arrows, furnished with handsome fences and quiver and conch and banner and coat of mail, decked with diadem and scimitar and bow, the son of Pritha shineth like the blazing Homa fire surrounded with sacrificial ladles and fed with sacrificial butter'
Mbh.4.57.2190 And covering the entire welkin with his shafts, that mighty warrior of immeasurable soul, the son of Pritha, enveloped Kripa with hundred of shafts.
Mbh.4.57.2205 Partha, however, quickly cut them into fragments by means of ten keen-edged shafts, and endued with great energy, the son of Pritha then, inflamed with wrath on the field of battle, discharged three and ten arrows whetted on stone and resembling flames of fire.
Mbh.4.58.2251 And the handsome Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha, ranging on his car, displayed his weapons on all sides at the same time.
Mbh.4.58.2292 And although enraged with Arjuna, yet Aswatthaman mentally admired that feat of the high-souled son of Pritha.
Mbh.4.59.2308 Thereupon, with a loud laughter, the mighty-armed son of Pritha attached a strong and fresh string to Gandiva.
Mbh.4.64.2518 And having slain with that thunder-like arrow that elephant huge as a mighty hill and looking like a mass of clouds, the son of Pritha smote Duryodhana in the breast with another arrow of the same kind.
Mbh.4.64.2524 Lo, I am an obedient servant of Yudhishthira, myself being the third son of Pritha, standing here for battle.
Mbh.4.65.2536 And beholding those divisions advance towards him like the swelling surges of the ocean, Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha, quickly rushed at them like a crane rushing at a descending cloud.
Mbh.4.65.2537 And with celestial weapons in their hands, they completely surrounded the son of Pritha and rained on him from all sides a perfect shower of shafts, like clouds showering on the mountain breast a heavy downpour of rain, And warding off with weapons, all the weapons of those bulls among the Kurus, the wielder of the Gandiva who was capable of enduring all foes, evolved another irresistible weapon obtained from Indra, called Sanmohana.
Mbh.4.65.2550 And Dhritarashtra's son, that foremost of heroes among the Kurus, recovering his senses, saw the son of Pritha standing like the lord of the celestials, alone on the battle-field.
Mbh.4.65.2562 And beholding those foremost of Kuru heroes departing for their city, Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha, with a cheerful heart followed them for a while, desirous of addressing and worshipping them.
Mbh.4.65.2563 And having worshipped the aged grandsire, the son of Santanu, as also the preceptor Drona, and having saluted with beautiful arrows Drona's son and Kripa and other venerable ones among the Kurus, the son of Pritha broke into fragments Duryodhana's crown decked with precious gems, with another arrow.
Mbh.4.66.2572 And fatigued with hunger and thirst, arrived in a foreign land, insensible with terror, and confused in mind, they all bowed down unto the son of Pritha and said, We are thy slaves'
Mbh.4.66.2580 And having routed the whole army of the Kuru like a violent wind scattering the clouds, that slayer of foes, Partha, regardfully addressing the prince of Matsya, said, It is known to thee alone, O child, that the sons of Pritha are all living with thy father.
Mbh.4.67.2600 And having vanquished the Trigartas in battle and recovered all the kine, that mighty monarch, along with the sons of Pritha, looked resplendent and blazed forth in beauty.
Mbh.4.67.2654 But the son of Pritha held it in his hands before it fell on the ground.
Mbh.4.71.2748 After their defeat at dice, the sons of Pritha have not been heard of by any one'
Mbh.4.71.2756 I am, O king, Arjuna who, it is evident, thou hast heard, is that son of Pritha, who is Bhima's junior and the senior of the twins!
Mbh.4.71.2759 And Uttara once again identified the sons of Pritha.
Mbh.4.71.2788 I make over my entire kingdom to the sons of Pritha, and what else I have.
Mbh.4.71.2791 Thus addressed, king Yudhishthira the just cast a look upon Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha.
Mbh.4.72.2808 O son of Pritha, do thou carry out what thou thinkest should be done after this.
Mbh.4.72.2833 And having accepted her, the son of Pritha, with Janardana before him, caused the nuptial ceremonies to be performed of the illustrious son of Subhadra.
Mbh.5.1.25 The sons of Dhritarashtra are incapable of overcoming by strength Arjuna, the son of Pritha.
Mbh.5.21.881 Arjuna, the son of Pritha, is strong trained in weapons, and is a great car-warrior.
Mbh.5.22.914 The sons of Pritha, mindful of both virtue and wealth, are ever pleasant to all.
Mbh.5.22.938 Deposed from the throne of the Kekaya land, and desirous of being reinstated thereon, the five mighty brothers from that land, wielding mighty bows, are now following the sons of Pritha ready to fight.
Mbh.5.24.1021 Free from illness of every kind and in the possession of excellent spirit are those foremost ones among the Kurus about whom, O son of Pritha, thou enquirest.
Mbh.5.25.1042 The sons of Pritha are endowed with every virtue with steadiness and mildness and candour.
Mbh.5.25.1050 If you, ye sons of Pritha, chastise the Kurus, by defeating and slaying all your foes, that subsequent life of yours would be equivalent to death, for what, in sooth, is life after having killed all your kinsfolk?
Mbh.5.25.1055 How can the sons of Pritha, like base persons of low lineage, commit an act of unrighteousness?
Mbh.5.26.1068 The sons of Pritha, no doubt, desire their own happiness but their conduct is ever marked by righteousness and conducive to the good of the world.
Mbh.5.27.1119 I see it also to be so, O son of Pritha.
Mbh.5.27.1124 Therefore, a wise man should beforehand kill them all and thereby gain a stainless fame in the world, O son of Pritha.
Mbh.5.27.1138 All acts are done, so long as this body lasts, O son of Pritha.
Mbh.5.27.1146 If after such a length of time, ye sons of Pritha, you now give way to hate, and commit the sinful deed, in vain, for virtue's sake, did ye dwell for years and years in the woods in such misery!
Mbh.5.29.1233 Now, if the sons of Pritha can see a course of action not involving the slaughter of the sons of Kuru, they would adopt it.
Mbh.5.29.1307 The sons of Pritha are ready to wait upon Dhritarashtra as, indeed, those repressors of foes are ready for war.
Mbh.5.32.1462 Indeed, what else is there save the will of the Gods, for Arjuna, the son of Pritha, leaving this world ascended to the very heavens and was honoured there very greatly.
Mbh.5.47.2666 Having offered their respects in return, the sons of Pritha have saluted the aged ones, and those that are equal to them in years, and those also that are younger, just as each should, according to his years, be saluted.
Mbh.5.54.2998 Having O bull of the Bharata race, injured the sons of Pritha from the very beginning, having in fact, committed sins repeatedly, this is not, O great king, the time to grieve.
Mbh.5.54.3001 When the harshest speeches were addressed to the sons of Pritha, thou didst not then interfere, pleased at the prospect of thy sons winning the whole kingdom.
Mbh.5.54.3005 Won by the strength of their arms, the sons of Pritha made over thee this extensive empire.
Mbh.5.54.3016 Acquainted with the energy of that wise king, all of them, however, have joined that son of Pritha, and for their devotion to him they are always opposed to thy sons.
Mbh.5.55.3072 Struck in battle with my mace, Vrikodara, the son of Pritha, will fall dead on the ground, his limbs shattered.
Mbh.5.56.3129 Duryodhana said, Thou rejoicest to applaud those sons of Pritha defeated at dice.
Mbh.5.57.3150 And that lord of earth, Virata, with his two sons Sankha and Uttara, as also with those heroes Suryadatta and others, headed by Madiraksha and surrounded by one Akshauhini of troops, hath thus accompanied by brothers and sons, joined the son of Pritha.
Mbh.5.60.3282 Endued with energy and well-versed in the use of weapons, those tigers among men, the sons of Pritha, when united with the celestials, will be incapable of being even gazed upon by human warriors, He who hath the irresistible, excellent and celestial Gandiva for his bow, he who hath a couple of celestial quivers obtained from Varuna, large, full of shafts, and inexhaustible, he on whose banner, that is unobstructed like smoke in its action, is stationed the monkey-image of celestial origin, whose car is unequalled on the earth girt by the four seas, and the rattle of which as heard by men is like the roar of the clouds, and which like the rolling of the thunder frightens the foe; he whom the whole world regards as superhuman in energy; he whom all the kings of the earth know to be the vanquisher of the very gods in battle; he that taketh up five hundred arrows at a time and in the twinkling of the eye, shooteth them, unseen by other, to a great distance; that son of Pritha and tiger among car-warriors and chastiser of foes, whom Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Drona's son and Salya, the king of the Madras, and in fact, all impartial persons, regard as incapable of being vanquished by even earthly kings of superhuman prowess, when ready for fight who shooteth at one stretch full five hundred arrows, and who is equal unto Kartavirya in strength of arms; that great bowman, Arjuna, equal unto Indra or Upendra in prowess, I behold that great warrior committing a great havoc in this terrible battle.
Mbh.5.61.3292 Indeed, if Agni, or Vayu, or Dharma, or Indra, or the Aswins had ever engaged themselves in works from worldly desire, then the sons of Pritha could never have fallen into distress.
Mbh.5.61.3306 If these had been able to protect by their might my adversaries, never would the sons of Pritha have fallen into such distress for three and ten years.
Mbh.5.62.3324 Having obtained the favour of that Rishi, I will slay within the twinkling of an eye the Panchalas, the Karushas, the Matsyas, and the sons of Pritha with their sons and grandsons, and bestow on thee numerous regions won by my weapons.
Mbh.5.62.3326 I will slay the sons of Pritha, marching forth with the chief warriors of my army.
Mbh.5.63.3347 SECTION LXIII Duryodhana said, The son of Pritha are all as other men, and are, in fact, of earthly birth as other men.
Mbh.5.75.3753 Asleep or awake, thou beholdest, O son of Pritha, inauspicious omens.
Mbh.5.82.3911 Indeed, even this would become the son of Pritha, and add to thy glory, and if accomplished, will, O Krishna, be a source of great happiness to the whole Kshatriya race.
Mbh.5.90.4181 SECTION XC Vaisampayana said, Janardana, the chastiser of foes, after his meeting with Vidura, went then in the afternoon to his paternal aunt, Pritha.
Mbh.5.90.4183 And at the sight, after a long time, of Govinda of Vrishni's race, the companion of those mighty children of hers, the tears of Pritha flowed fast.
Mbh.5.90.4184 And after Krishna, that foremost of warriors, had taken his seat having first received the rites of hospitality, Pritha, with a woe-begone face and voice choked with tears addressed him, saying.
Mbh.5.90.4210 Vaisampayana continued, Filled with delight at the advent of Govinda, and afflicted with sorrow on account of her sons Pritha gave expression to all her diverse griefs.
Mbh.5.90.4253 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by her, Sauri the friend of Partha, then comforted his paternal aunt, Pritha, afflicted with grief on account of her sons.
Mbh.5.91.4304 This unreasonable hatred of thine for the sons of Pritha ill becometh thee.
Mbh.5.95.4526 As regards the sons of Pritha, they are equally ready to wait upon thee in dutiful service or to fight.
Mbh.5.124.5538 With myself again as his second when that son of Pritha will rush to the field of battle against an enemy, who is there that is competent to challenge him then?
Mbh.5.124.5547 Giving to the sons of Pritha half the kingdom, win thou great prosperity.
Mbh.5.126.5589 As yet that mighty bowman, Bhimasena, the son of Pritha, is not seen stationed in the midst of his division, so let hostility cease.
Mbh.5.127.5605 Indeed, uttering such harsh words, thou, without any reason, findest fault with me alone, addressed regardfully as thou always art by the sons of Pritha, O slayer of Madhu.
Mbh.5.130.5785 If they desire to perpetrate such a deed, Yudhishthira's object will then be easily accomplished, for, this very day, O Bharata, seizing these with all that follow them, I can make them over to the sons of Pritha.
Mbh.5.138.6182 Thou hast inflicted much pain on the sons of Pritha.
Mbh.5.139.6239 If the son of Pritha and Pandu stayeth even in the woods with Draupadi, and surrounded by his armed brothers, who is there, even in the possession of a kingdom, that is competent to vanquish him?
Mbh.5.140.6266 On the side of thy father, thou hast the sons of Pritha, on the side of thy mother, thou hast the Vrishnis, for thy kinsmen.
Mbh.5.144.6446 SECTION CXLIV Vaisampayana said, Upon the failure of Krishna's solicitations for peace, and after he had started for the Pandavas from the Kurus, Kshatri approached Pritha and said these words slowly in grief, O mother of living children, thou knowest that my inclination is always for peace, and although I cry myself hoarse, yet Suyodhana doth not accept my words.
Mbh.5.144.6476 And having reached the banks of Ganga, Pritha heard the chanting of the Vedic hymns by her son, endued with great kindness and firmly devoted to truth.
Mbh.5.146.6510 And it said, The words said by Pritha are true.
Mbh.5.146.6549 And having told all this, Pritha also addressed Karna, saying, Blessed be thou, and let health be thine'
Mbh.5.154.6841 Vaisampayana said, When he of Dasarha's race had departed from the Kuru court, king Duryodhana, addressing Karna and Dussasana and Sakuni, said these words, Kesava hath gone to the sons of Pritha, without having been able to achieve his object.
Mbh.5.161.7156 Thou always sayest, O thou of Vrishni's race, these words, viz, Causing the sons of Dhritarashtra to be slain in battle, I will confer undisputed sovereignty on the sons of Pritha,
Mbh.5.161.7165 Say next repeatedly, from me, O Uluka, unto that stupid, ignorant, gluttonous Bhimasena, who is even like a bull though divested of horns, these words, viz, O son of Pritha, a cook thou hadst become, known by the name of Vallabha, in the city of Virata!
Mbh.5.161.7213 Fight, O son of Pritha, and prove to be a man!
Mbh.5.161.7251 Even this, O son of Pritha, is evidence of my manliness!
Mbh.5.162.7286 Without having vanquished in battle the Suta's son Karna who is invincible, and Salya, that foremost of mighty persons, and that first of all warriors and equal unto Sachi's lord himself in combat, why, O son of Pritha, dost thou wish for sovereignty?
Mbh.5.162.7288 Thou desirest in vain, O son of Pritha, to vanquish that leader of troops, the illustrious Drona, who fightest in the van, is incapable of being agitated, and whose strength knows no diminution.
Mbh.5.163.7388 O Kaurava, relying on thy own might and on that of thy servants, summon the sons of Pritha to battle!
Mbh.5.167.7549 The sons of Pritha provoked hostilities with them at Virata's city on that well-known occasion.
Mbh.6.14.768 The sons of Pritha, as also my sons, are all in the observance of Kshatriya duties.
Mbh.6.21.977 Thus addressed, that slayer of foes Arjuna answered Yudhisthira, the son of Pritha, who had been plunged into grief at sight, O king, of thy army, in these words, Hear, O king, how soldiers that are few in number may vanquish the many that are possessed of every quality.
Mbh.6.23.1042 The son of Kunti, however, obtaining that boon, regarded himself as successful, and the son of Pritha then mounted his own excellent car.
Mbh.6.25.1091 Sanjaya continued, -'Thus addressed by Gudakesa, O Bharata, Hrishikesa, placing that excellent car between the two armies, in view of Bhishma and Drona and all the kings of the earth, said, Behold, O Partha these assembled Kurus, And there the son of Pritha beheld, standing his sires and grandsons, and friends, and father-in-law and well-wishers, in both the armies.
Mbh.6.30.1438 The Holy One said, O son of Pritha, neither here, nor hereafter, doth ruin exist for him, since none, O sire, who performs good acts comes by an evil end.
Mbh.6.31.1449 SECTION XXXI Bhagavad Gita Chapter VII The Holy One said, Listen, O son of Pritha, how, without doubt, thou mayst know me fully, fixing thy mind on me, practising devotion, and taking refuge in me.
Mbh.6.31.1462 Know me, O son of Pritha, to be the eternal seed of all beings.
Mbh.6.32.1501 Thinking of the Supreme with a mind not running to other objects and endued with abstraction in the form of uninterrupted application, one goeth, O son of Pritha, unto the Divine and Supreme male Being.
Mbh.6.32.1508 That same assemblage of creatures, springing forth again and again, dissolveth on the advent of night, and springeth forth again, O son of Pritha, when day cometh, constrained by the force of action, etc.
Mbh.6.32.1514 That Supreme Being, O son of Pritha, He within whom are all entities, and by whom all this is permeated, is to be attained by reverence undirected to any other object.
Mbh.6.32.1520 Knowing these two paths, O son of Pritha, no devotee is deluded.
Mbh.6.33.1539 But high-souled ones, O son of Pritha, possessed of divine nature, and with minds directed to nothing else, worship me, knowing me to be the origin of all entities and undestructible.
Mbh.6.33.1562 For, O son of Pritha, even they who may be of sinful birth, women, Vaisyas, and also Sudras, even they, resorting to me, attain to the supreme goal.
Mbh.6.34.1592 Know me, O son of Pritha, to be Vrihaspati, the chief of household priests.
Mbh.6.35.1636 The Holy One said, Behold, O son of Pritha, my forms by hundreds and thousands, various, divine, diverse in hue and shape.
Mbh.6.35.1643 Sanjaya continued, Having said this, O monarch, Hari, the mighty Lord of mystic power, then revealed to the son of Pritha his Supreme sovereign form, with many mouths and eyes, many wonderous aspects, many celestial ornaments, many celestial weapons uplifted, wearing celestial garlands and robes, and with unguents of celestial fragrance, full of every wonder, resplendent, infinite, with faces turned on all sides
Mbh.6.40.1833 Hypocrisy, pride, conceit, wrath, rudeness and ignorance, are, O son of Pritha, his who is born to demoniac possessions.
Mbh.6.40.1838 Hear now, from me, O son of Pritha, about the demoniac.
Mbh.6.41.1890 Likewise, O son of Pritha, the word SAT is used in any auspicious act.
Mbh.6.41.1892 Whatever oblation is offered to the fire, whatever is given away, whatever penance is performed, whatever is done, without faith, is, O son of Pritha, said to be the opposite of SAT; and that is nought both here and hereafter'
Mbh.6.42.1902 This, O son of Pritha, is my excellent and decided opinion.
Mbh.6.42.1930 The intellect which knoweth action and inaction, what ought to be done and what ought not to be done, fear and fearlessness, bondage and deliverance, is, O son of Pritha, of the quality of goodness.
Mbh.6.42.1931 The intellect by which one imperfectly discerneth right and wrong, that which ought to be done and that which ought not to be done, is, O son of Pritha, of the quality of passion.
Mbh.6.42.1932 That intellect which, shrouded by darkness, regardeth wrong to be right, and all things as reversed, is, O son of Pritha, of the quality of darkness.
Mbh.6.42.1933 That unswerving constancy by which one controls the functions of the mind, the life-breaths, and the senses, through devotion, that constancy, is, O son of Pritha, of the quality of goodness
Mbh.6.42.1934 But that constancy, O Arjuna, by which one holds to religion, desire, and profit, through attachment, desiring fruit, that constancy, O son of Pritha, is of the quality of passion.
Mbh.6.42.1983 Hath this, O son of Pritha, been heard by thee with mind undirected to any other objects?
Mbh.6.42.1989 Sanjaya continued, Thus I heard this converse between Vasudeva and the high-souled son of Pritha, that is wonderful and causeth the hair to stand on end.
Mbh.6.43.2035 Solicit also the boon, O son of Pritha, which thou desirest to have from us.
Mbh.6.45.2201 The mighty son of Ganga however, piercing in battle the son of Pritha could not make him waver.
Mbh.6.50.2625 Having said this, the high-souled son of Pritha, with heart afflicted by grief and mind turned within, remained silent for a long while in a reflected mood.
Mbh.6.50.2637 Then gladdening the listeners Dhrishtadyumna said, Ordained of old by Sambhu himself, I am, O son of Pritha, the slayer of Drona.
Mbh.6.52.2709 Then that ruler of men, king Duryodhana, said unto Bhishma, beholding his own troops thus afflicted in battle by the son of Pritha.
Mbh.6.52.2711 O monarch, it is for thee only that this Karna, laying aside his weapons, doth not fight with the sons of Pritha in battle though he is ever a well-wisher of mine, Do, therefore, that, O son of Ganga by which Phalguni may be slain.
Mbh.6.54.2871 Then that foremost of mighty men, Bhima, the son of Pritha, excited with rage and drawing his bow with great strength, slew the ruler of the Kalingas with seven shafts made wholly of iron.
Mbh.6.59.3261 Srutayush, the ruler of the Amvashtas, and Durmarshana, and Chitrasena, and Drona, and Kripa, and the ruler of the Sindhus, and Valhika, and Bhurisravas, and Salya, and Sala, O king, and other warriors by hundreds united together, along with Bhishma himself, have on battle, by the prowess of his own arms, been vanquished today by the angry son of Pritha, viz, Kiritin, that one mighty car-warrior in the world'
Mbh.6.65.3537 Desirous of high fame, the sons of Pritha always do every act, including even the support of their lives, agreeably to the way of morality.
Mbh.6.65.3540 It is for this, O king, that the sons of Pritha are unslayable in battle and always victorious.
Mbh.6.77.4047 Thereupon that son of Pritha was surrounded by those cousins of his who were firmly resolved to take his life.
Mbh.6.82.4307 And others, O sire, the son of Pritha pierced, each with two or three arrows.
Mbh.6.82.4308 And while being thus struck by Pritha, they sought the protection of Bhishma, the son of Santanu.
Mbh.6.85.4448 And that foremost of car-warriors, viz, the son of Pritha, with another broad-headed arrow, quickly felled on the earth the standard of the high-souled Srutayush from his car.
Mbh.6.89.4705 Therefore, O king, summoning all thy patience, and firmly resolved on battle, fight with the sons of Pritha, making heaven thy goal.
Mbh.6.99.5271 The son of Pritha defeated in battle the Nivatakavachas who were incapable of defeat by Vasava himself.
Mbh.6.103.5519 With diverse scratches on his person inflicted by those huge animals with their tusks, the son of Pritha looked beautiful on the field of battle like a flowering Kinsuka.
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.6.108.5852 I give you permission, ye sons of Pritha, strike me as ye please.
Mbh.6.116.6326 Thy sons, accompanied by many kings, proceeded against Sikhandin and Dhananjaya the son of Pritha, from desire of slaughtering both of them.
Mbh.7.10.395 How can the sons of Pritha meet with defeat, they, viz, that have the greatest of all beings, the wielder of the bow called Sarnga, for their refuge and benefactor?
Mbh.7.40.2001 Except Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha, thou shalt in battle check the four other sons of Pandu'
Mbh.7.77.3365 Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha, will not falsify his oath.
Mbh.7.81.3593 Thus addressed in the midst of that assembly by king Yudhishthira the just, Kesava, that foremost of speakers, replied unto Yudhishthira in a voice deep as that of clouds charged with rain, saying, In all the worlds including that of the celestials, there is no bowman equal to Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha!
Mbh.7.84.3728 Thy sons had addressed various harsh speeches towards the sons of Pritha.
Mbh.7.84.3732 If it is not so, obtain now the whole earth subjugated by the sons of Pritha
Mbh.7.86.3792 Then Nakula's son, Satanika, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Pritha, those two warriors possessed of great wisdom, arrayed the several divisions of the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.91.4148 O brave subjugator of hostile towns, go thyself to that spot where Dhananjaya the son of Pritha is'
Mbh.7.109.5246 Thus addressed, he of Madhu's race answered Bhima, saying, Go back, O son of Pritha!
Mbh.7.123.6068 Casting his eyes around in expectation of seeing Savyasachin, Yudhishthira, however, saw neither that son of Pritha nor Madhava.
Mbh.7.123.6078 Fearing, as I do, the reproach of the world, I should therefore, send Vrikodara, the son of Pritha, in the track of the high-souled Madhava.
Mbh.7.123.6125 O son of Pritha, Satyaki hath gone, from desire of doing good to me, in the track of Arjuna, a track that is incapable of being trod by persons of vile souls.
Mbh.7.124.6137 Thou shouldst, therefore, vigorously resolved on fight, protect Yudhishthira the son of Pritha today.
Mbh.7.124.6140 Go, O son of Pritha, without any anxiety of the kind.
Mbh.7.124.6166 Then the son of Pritha, drawing the bowstring with great force, began to crush the head of the hostile array, mangling and piercing the combatants there.
Mbh.7.129.6454 Then that chastiser of foes, viz, Bhima recollecting all the woes suffered by him on the occasion of the match at dice, and during his exile in the woods and residence in Virata's city, and bearing in mind the robbing of their kingdom swelling with prosperity and gems, by thy sons, and the numerous other wrongs inflicted on the Pandavas by thee and the Suta's son and remembering also the fact that thou hadst conspired to burn innocent Kunti with her sons, and calling to his memory the sufferings of Krishna in the midst of the assembly at the hands of those wretches, as also the seizure of her tresses by Duhsasana, and the harsh speeches uttered, O Bharata, by Karna, to the effect, Take thou another husband, for all thy husbands are dead: the sons of Pritha have sunk into hell and are like sesamum seeds without kernel, remembering also those other words, O son of Kuru, that the Kauravas uttered in thy presence, add the fact also that thy sons had been desirous of enjoying Krishna as a slave, and those harsh words that Karna spoke to the sons of Pandu when the latter, attired in deer-skins were about to be banished to the woods, and the joy in which thy wrathful and foolish son, himself in prosperity, indulged, thinking the distressed sons of Pritha as veritable straw, the virtuous Bhima that slayer of foes, remembering these and all the woes he had suffered since his childhood, became reckless of his very life.
Mbh.7.130.6485 O Suta, obtaining Karna in battle, my son Suyodhana always ventures to vanquish the sons of Pritha with Govinda and the Satwatas.
Mbh.7.130.6487 Karna will never succeed, O Sanjaya, in vanquishing those mighty bowmen, viz, the sons of Pritha.
Mbh.7.130.6494 Yudhishthira, the son of Pritha, of great foresight, always showed himself desirous of peace.
Mbh.7.131.6534 The son of Pritha then pierced Karna in return with three and sixty arrows, like a driver striking a mighty elephant with the hook, or a rider striking a steed with a whip.
Mbh.7.136.6817 Desirous of shelter, that subjugator of hostile cities viz, the son of Pritha, uplifting an elephant that had been slain by Dhananjaya with his shafts, waited there, like Hanumat uplifting the peak of Gandhamadana
Mbh.7.138.6910 Transgressing that division of the Kalingas which was incapable of being crossed, the mighty-armed Satyaki approached the presence of Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha.
Mbh.7.139.7024 Mentally applauding the Kuru warrior thus, O king, the mighty-armed Arjuna, the son of Pritha, replied unto Vasudeva, saying, My eyes having rested upon of the Sindhus, I could not, O Madhava, see Satyaki.
Mbh.7.142.7245 Cutting off his bow, that hero, viz, Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha, quickly pierced Karna in the centre of the chest with nine arrows, Then Dhananjaya, with great speed at a time, when speed was necessary shot in that battle a shaft of solar effulgence for the destruction of Karna.
Mbh.7.143.7286 Then Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha, careered in battle in such a way that he was seen at the same time to be present in all directions, displaying his wonderful weapons.
Mbh.7.144.7443 Drona's son also, on his car, rushed against Phalguna, the son of Pritha.
Mbh.7.149.7830 By deceit the sons of Pritha were beguiled as also by the administration of poison, O Bharata!
Mbh.7.153.8003 I swear, O Satwata, by my two sons, by what is dear to me, and by all my meritorious acts, that, if before this night passes away, I do not slay thee, that art so proud of thy heroism, with thy sons and younger brothers, provided Jishnu, the son of Pritha, does not protect thee, then let me sink into terrible hell, O wretch of Vrishni's race'
Mbh.7.153.8040 Phalguna, the son of Pritha, with wrath excited a little, quickly proceeded towards the preceptor.
Mbh.7.155.8306 Thou roarest, O son of Radha, as long as thou seest not the son of Pritha.
Mbh.7.156.8451 Then, the son of Pandu and Pritha pierced the bowless, the steedless, and the driverless Karna with four shafts.
Mbh.7.159.8638 The preceptor, then pierced the son of Pritha with seven keen arrows.
Mbh.7.159.8646 The valiant son of Pritha, bow in hand, fearlessly baffled that weapon with a similar weapon of his in that encounter.
Mbh.7.163.8868 And the eldest son of Pandu, thereupon, rushed quickly to the spot where Vrikodara, the son of Pritha, was.
Mbh.7.168.9084 It's evident, the son of Pandu is achieving feats worthy of his own self This son of Pritha, O monarch, will grind our large host.
Mbh.7.172.9293 Formerly, having performed some Rakshasa slaying incantations, the despicable sons of Pritha slew him.
Mbh.7.180.9811 The other sons of Pritha are like their branches, while the Panchalas may be called their leaves.
Mbh.7.190.10542 These five were myself, Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha, and Drona's son, Aswatthaman, and Vasudeva of Vrishni's race, and king Yudhishthira the just, the son of Pandu.
Mbh.7.196.10887 Tell me, O Sanjaya, what the sons of Pritha, as also all the other royal bowmen in the world, hearing of Drona's slaughter, said unto the prince of Panchala'
Mbh.8.10.380 By him also were the sons of Pritha spared, in consequence, as I think, of their relationship unto him of pupils.
Mbh.8.39.2046 Thou, O Karna, challengest Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha, even like a hare challenging a mighty elephant with tusks large as plough-shafts, and with the juice issuing out of its mouth and rent cheeks.
Mbh.8.39.2051 O Karna, thou challengest Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha, to battle even like a calf challenging a smiting bull of keen horns and neck thick as a drum.
Mbh.8.43.2335 If all the gods themselves with Vasava would fight with me, I would not still feel any fear, what need be said then of my fears from Pritha and Keshava?
Mbh.8.49.2748 His armour cut off with those arrows, the son of Pritha, covered with blood, wrathfully hurled at the son of Adhiratha a dart made wholly of iron.
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.8.55.3139 O sire, the son of Pritha quickly went away from that spot, leaving that large division of his.
Mbh.8.60.3461 Of rigid vows, when the son of Pritha Yudhishthira had been engaged in battle with all those warriors, other great car-warriors had struck him and contributed to his defeat.
Mbh.8.60.3467 Yonder Karna urges forward the mighty car-warriors of the Dhartarashtras towards the son of Pritha with the weapons called Sthunakarna, Indrasjaha and Pasupata, and with clubs and other weapons.
Mbh.8.68.3937 Even these were the words that a voice in the skies had said unto Pritha on the seventh day after thy birth, O thou of foolish understanding!
Mbh.8.69.4095 Having addressed him in this way, thou mayst then worship his feet and speak words of respect unto this son of Pritha and soothe his wounded honour.
Mbh.8.88.5456 Nor will the sons of Pritha have the least confidence in me, thinking of the many acts of forceful hostility done by me towards them.
Mbh.8.89.5475 Let the sons of Pritha once more go to the woods forever
Mbh.8.96.6125 Then that chief of Kuru's race, that righteous son of Pritha, taking hold of Keshava's right arm adorned with Angadas, and addressing both Keshava and Arjuna, said, Narada told me that ye two are the gods Nara and Narayana, those ancient and best of Rishis, that are ever employed in the preservation of righteousness.
Mbh.9.4.281 A cessation of hostilities with the sons of Pritha is what I consider to be for thy good.
Mbh.9.12.754 Conversant with what are the vital limbs of the body, the son of Pritha, however, O monarch, with the greatest ease, struck the ruler of the Madras with four and ten cloth-yard shafts, aiming at the latter's vital limbs.
Mbh.9.12.761 While Shalya was thus careering in that battle, that best of kings, the son of Pritha, sped at him many shafts that resembled snakes of virulent poison.
Mbh.9.16.980 Whether the son of Pritha would enjoy the Earth, having slain Shalya, or whether Shalya having slain the son of Pandu would bestow the Earth on Duryodhana, could not be ascertained, O Bharata, by the warriors present there.
Mbh.9.17.1007 The high-souled son of Pritha, O king, in return, pierced his foe with nine arrows in that dreadful encounter.
Mbh.9.17.1015 Recovering his senses within a trice, that foremost of kings Shalya, possessed of prowess equal to that of him of a eyes, with eyes red in wrath, quickly struck the son of Pritha with a hundred arrows.
Mbh.9.17.1072 With the showers of shafts that the son of Pritha then shot, thy troops became entirely shrouded.
Mbh.9.19.1191 Who else than Yudhishthira the son of Pritha, who hath Hrishikesa, the refuge of righteousness and fame, for his protector, is competent to vanquish in battle Bhishma and Drona and Karna and the ruler of the Madras and the other kings by hundreds and thousands
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.9.31.2286 Thou shouldst, however, O son of Pritha, always fight with care with the son of Dhritarashtra!
Mbh.9.54.3865 Possessed of great energy, he challenged the son of Pritha to battle.
Mbh.9.55.4004 Thus struck in that battle, the son of Pritha, O monarch, looked beautiful, as he bled profusely, like an elephant of rent temples with juicy secretions trickling adown.
Mbh.10.8.608 Devoted to Brahma, truthful in speech, self-restrained, and compassionate towards all creatures, that son of Pritha, called Dhananjaya, never slaughters one that is asleep, or one that is heedless, or one that has laid aside his weapons or one that has joined his hands in supplication, or one that is retreating, or one whose locks have been dishevelled.
Mbh.10.11.809 By good luck, O son of Pritha, thou art happy at the thought of having obtained the whole earth.
Mbh.10.11.812 O son of Pritha, hearing of the slaughter of those sleeping heroes by Drona's son of sinful deeds, grief burns me as if I were in the midst of a fire.
Mbh.11.15.643 Having wept for some time with her children, Pritha beheld the wounds and scars of many weapons on their bodies.
Mbh.11.15.648 Raising the grief-stricken princess of Pancala who was weeping thus, Pritha began to comfort that lady of large eyes.
Mbh.11.23.923 This mighty-armed one, having fought Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha, and having reduced him to great straits, was at last slain by his antagonist.
Mbh.12.1.37 We have heard that on one occasion Pritha went to him for seeking our good and addressed him, saying, Thou art my son'
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.12.1.50 Having said these words, Pritha took his leave and came back to her abode.
Mbh.12.1.52 Neither Pritha, nor he, had ever disclosed the secret, O lord!
Mbh.12.16.735 We, are thy servants, O son of Pritha, as also Vasudeva of great energy
Mbh.12.24.1031 Rule thou the earth, O son of Pritha, like another Yayati, the son of Nahusha.
Mbh.12.26.1175 Listen now to me with concentrated attention, O son of Pritha, as I say it unto thee.
Mbh.12.40.2101 Upon a white throne of ivory, decked with gold, sat Pritha with Sahadeva and Nakula.
Mbh.12.46.2269 After that tiger among kings shall have, in consequences of his own achievements, ascended to heaven, the earth, O son of Pritha, will look like a moonless night.
Mbh.12.78.4428 Listen, O son of Pritha, to what has been laid down by those that pour ten libations upon the fire at ten times of the day,
Mbh.12.82.4689 High descent, purity of blood, forgiveness, cleverness, and purity of soul, bravery, gratefulness, and truth, are, O son of Pritha marks of superiority and goodness.
Mbh.12.86.4918 The king, O son of Pritha, should always conciliate and protect the Vaisyas, adopt measures for inspiring them with a sense of security and for ensuring them in the enjoyment of what they possess, and always do what is agreeable to them.
Mbh.12.142.8700 This very question, O son of Pritha had been put to Bhrigu's son by Muchukunda with due humility.
Mbh.12.193.11553 Bhishma said This, Adhyatma, O son of Pritha, that thou askest me about, I will presently discourse upon.
Mbh.12.194.11676 SECTION CXCV Bhishma said, I shall now, O son of Pritha, discourse to thee upon the four kinds of yoga meditation.

Mbh.12.301.18936 That is the highest end, O son of Pritha, which is attained by those high-souled men who have transcended the influence of all pairs of opposites
Mbh.12.301.18987 Failing to acquire, O son of Pritha, that complete knowledge which is recommended by their system, the Sankhyas attain to the status of deities and pass many years in felicity.
Mbh.12.342.22717 I have thus told thee, O son of Pritha, how in that battle which took place in days of yore between Rudra and Narayana, the latter got the victory.

Mbh.13.18.2810 As soon as he had said these words, O son of Pritha, I immediately became transformed into a deer.
Mbh.13.18.2887 By reciting this hymn the Brahmana succeeds in acquiring all the Vedas; the Kshatriya becomes crowned with victory, O son of Pritha; the Vaisya becomes successful in obtaining wealth and cleverness; and the Sudra, in winning happiness here and a good end hereafter.
Mbh.13.22.3221 Listen now to me, O son of Pritha, as I recite to thee the opinions of these four persons of mighty energy, viz, the goddess Earth, the Rishi Kasyapa, Agni the deity of fire and the ascetic Markandeya'
Mbh.13.34.4140 Having heard this discourse between the goddess Earth and Madhava, do thou, O son of Pritha, always, with rapt soul, worship all superior Brahmanas.
Mbh.13.47.4925 Even this is the law of inheritance, O son of Pritha, as declared by the Self-born himself.
Mbh.13.60.5850 O son of Pritha, that a gift made unto an unsoliciting person is productive of greater merit than one made to a person who solicits.
Mbh.13.76.6987 Therefore, O son of Pritha, do thou also bear in mind those instructions of Vrihaspati which I have recited unto thee in respect of gifts of kine.
Mbh.13.100.8998 Unto the Grandsire, O son of Pritha, who said so unto them, the deities filled with joy, replied, saying, So be it'
Mbh.13.102.9058 Bhishma said, By different deeds, O son of Pritha, men attain to different regions.
Mbh.13.106.9700 Even this, O son of Pritha, is the ordinance in respect of fasts that has been declared by sages conversant with duties.

Mbh.13.111.9939 Vaisampayana said, While the son of Pritha and the son of Ganga were thus speaking with each other, there came to that spot from the firmament the illustrious Vrihaspati of cleansed soul.
Mbh.13.115.10346 Many kings in ancient days, O son of Pritha, who had constituted themselves the souls of all creatures and who were conversant with the truths of all things, viz, Soul and Not-soul, had abstained from flesh either for the whole of the month of Karttika or for the whole of the lighted fortnight in that month.
Mbh.13.119.10576 Indeed, O son of Pritha, the worm attained to the highest status, viz, that of eternal Brahma, as the result of his own acts done in obedience to the counsels of Vyasa.
Mbh.13.148.12427 O son of Pritha, the victory thou hast obtained over thy enemies, thy unrivalled achievements, the dominion thou hast acquired over the whole earth, are all due to thy side having been taken up by Narayana.
Mbh.13.158.13111 Do thou, O son of Pritha, learn from Krishna what little remains to be learnt on that head.
Mbh.13.158.13125 It was Brahma, O son of Pritha, who rent that darkness which existed surpassing the very ocean in depth and extent.
Mbh.13.158.13208 The Moon and the Sun, the Planets, the Constellations, and the Stars, all the Parva days, including the day of the full moon, the conjunctions of the constellations and the seasons, have, O son of Pritha, flowed from this Krishna who is Vishwaksena.
Mbh.13.158.13231 He it is that then creates the Earth and the Wind, the Sky, Light, and also Water, O son of Pritha!
Mbh.13.160.13362 The deities and the Asuras, O son of Pritha, all became cheerless and stupefied.
Mbh.13.166.13727 Devoted to the practice of the Kshatriya order, do thou, O son of Pritha, gratify the Pitris and the deities.
Mbh.14.3.81 O son of Pritha, in the mountain Himavat The Himalayas there is gold which had been left behind by Brahmanas at the sacrifice of the high-souled Marutta
Mbh.14.11.327 Knowing the king, the son of Pritha, afflicted in mind, and bereft of his relatives and kinsmen slain in battle, and appearing crest-fallen like the sun darkened eclipse, or fire smothered by smoke, that prop of the Vrishni race Krishna, comforting the son of Dharma, essayed to address him thus
Mbh.14.12.356 Or, perchance, O son, of Pritha, it is thy innate nature, by which thou art at present overpowered.
Mbh.14.12.359 Nor it is proper, O son of Pritha, and conqueror of thy foes, that thou shouldst recall the incident of Kichaka's kicking Draupadi, during the period of thy exile passed in absolute concealment, nor the incidents of the fight which took place between thyself and Drona and Bhishma.
Mbh.14.13.373 But the man who having renounced the world, has taken to the life of the recluse in the forest, living on wild roots and edibles, if such a man, O son of Pritha, has a craving for the good things of the world, and is addicted to them, he may be said to bear Mrityu death in his mouth.
Mbh.14.15.411 And then Janarddana comforted the son of Pritha afflicted by the death of his sons, and thousands of other relatives.
Mbh.14.15.416 O thou who knowest what virtue is, it was by righteousness alone that the king has been able to regain his kingdom free from all enemies thorns, and it was by the action of righteousness that king Suyodhana has been killed in battle, and, O son of Pritha and pillar of the Kuru race, the wicked sons of Dhritarashtra, avaricious, always rude in speech, and bent upon an unrighteous course of conduct, having been exterminated with their followers, the king, the son of Dharma and lord of the earth, now peaceably enjoys the entire kingdom of the earth with thy aid, and I too, O son of Pandu, have been pleasantly whiling away my time in thy company, amidst woodland scenes.
Mbh.14.15.417 O terror of thine enemies, what more need I tell thee, but that where thou and Pritha, and the king, the son of Dharma, and the mighty Bhimasena and the two sons of Madri are, there am I attracted with exquisite delight.
Mbh.14.15.425 O son of Pritha and descendant of Kuru, I now tell thee truly, desiring to do only what is good and agreeable to thee, and there can be nothing equivocal in it in any way, that the necessity for my staying here no longer exists, because, O Arjuna, that monarch the son of Dhritarashtra bath been slain with his armies and attendants, and the earth, my friend, with its girdle of seas and its mountains and woods and forests, and the kingdom of the Kuru king filled with various gems, have passed under the sway of that wise son of Dharma.
Mbh.14.15.428 As Yudhishthira the high-souled king of the Kurus always commands my love and respect, I have, O son of Pritha, placed this my body and all the wealth that I have in my house, at his disposal.
Mbh.14.15.429 And O prince Partha son of Pritha, when this earth has come under thy sway and that of the worshipful Yudhishthira of excellent character, there no longer remains any necessity for my staying here except for my affection for thee.
Mbh.14.16.432 Vaisampayana said, The son of Pritha Arjuna, having recovered his own kingdom, joyously spent his time, without doing anything else, in the company of Krishna, his heart filled with delight, in that palace of celestial beauty.
Mbh.14.16.457 O son of Pritha, without yielding to scruples of any kind, to what he, O chief of Bharata's race, said, in answer to our enquiries, agreeably to heavenly forms'
Mbh.14.19.708 Vasudeva continued, That best of Brahmanas, O son of Pritha, having said these words unto me, on that occasion, properly relating to the religion of Emancipation, disappeared then and there.
Mbh.14.19.709 Has this discourse been heard by thee, O son of Pritha, with mind directed solely towards it?
Mbh.14.19.711 It is my opinion, O son of Pritha, that this is difficult of being comprehended by one whose understanding is confused, or who has acquired no wisdom by study, or who eats food incompatible with his body, or whose Soul is not purified
Mbh.14.19.713 At no time or place, O son of Pritha, has this been heard by man in this world.
Mbh.14.19.718 That goal, O son of Pritha, is the highest which is constituted by eternal Brahman where one, casting off the body, attains to immortality and becomes always happy.
Mbh.14.19.720 What need be said then, O son of Pritha, of Brahmanas and Kshatriyas possessed of great learning, always devoted to the duties of their own orders and who are intent on the acquisition of the region of Brahma?
Mbh.14.19.725 Yoga takes place in his case, O son of Pritha, who devotes himself to its constant practice for a period of six months
Mbh.14.20.726 SECTION XX Vasudeva said, In this connection is cited the ancient narrative, O son of Pritha, of the discourse that took place between a married couple.
Mbh.14.26.1008 Instructed by him, kinsmen become possessed of kinsmen, and the seven Rishis, O son of Pritha, shine in the firmament.
Mbh.14.35.1356 Unto that disciple, O son of Pritha, who said so, the preceptor said, O regenerate one, I shall explain to thee everything about which thou mayst have any doubts,
Mbh.14.35.1378 Vasudeva said, Unto that disciple who had humbly sought his instruction and put the questions duly, who was devoted to his preceptor and possessed of tranquillity, and who always behaved in a manner that was agreeable to his instructor, who lived so constantly by the side of his instructor as to have almost become his shadow, who was self-restrained, and who had the life of a Yati and Brahmacharin, O son of Pritha, that preceptor possessed of intelligence and observant of vows, duly explained all the questions, O foremost one of Kuru's race, O chastiser of all foes'
Mbh.14.52.2304 They then saw, O monarch, king Dhritarashtra, and Vidura of great intelligence, and king Yudhishthira and the irresistible Bhimasena, and the two sons of Madri by Pandu; and the unvanquished Yuyatsu, seated before Dhritarashtra and Gandhari of great wisdom, and Pritha, and the beautiful Krishna, and the other ladies of Bharata's race with Subhadra counting first.
Mbh.14.52.2307 Indeed, those high-souled ones also touched the feet of Gandhari and Pritha and king Yudhishthira the Just, and Bhima.
Mbh.14.53.2353 With great difficulty, the son of Pritha withdrew his gaze that had fallen on Govinda.
Mbh.14.61.2836 Hearing these lamentations of this daughter of the Vrishni race, Pritha, deeply afflicted with grief, addressed her and slowly said, O Subhadra, though protected by Vasudeva and Satyaki and by his own sire, thy youthful son has yet been slain.
Mbh.14.62.2868 The highly intelligent Rishi, endued with great energy, arrived at the palace, addressed Pritha of large eyes, as also Uttara herself, saying, Let this grief be abandoned.
Mbh.14.63.2912 Taking the permission of king Dhritarashtra who was afflicted with grief on account of the death of his sons, his queen Gandhari, and Pritha also of large eyes, and keeping the Kaurava prince Yuyutsu, the son of Dhritarashtra, in the capital, they set out, worshipped by the citizens and by many Brahmanas possessed of great wisdom
Mbh.14.66.3001 Having said these words unto that hero of the Vrishni's race, Pritha of large eyes, raised her arms upwards and with the other ladies in her company, fell down on the Earth.
Mbh.14.67.3015 Behold, O foremost of men, these two standing here, viz, Pritha and Draupadi.
Mbh.14.77.3370 Understanding that the son of Pritha was deprived of consciousness, the deities, with hearts penetrated by fear, began to seek his welfare by uttering diverse benedictions.
Mbh.14.79.3504 Gratified with the prowess of his son, that foremost one of the sons of Pritha, viz, the son of the wielder of the thunder-bolt, began to afflict him greatly.
Mbh.14.89.3991 Receiving that gift of affection from her father-in-law, Pritha became glad of heart and devoted it to the accomplishment of diverge acts of merit.
Mbh.15.18.734 They ceased to follow further, having failed to persuade Pritha to return.
Mbh.15.18.745 After all the sons of Pritha and all the ladies had retraced their steps, king Yudhishthira of great wisdom continued his journey to the woods.
Mbh.15.21.855 How will the highly blessed Gandhari, and Pritha, the daughter of Kuntibhoja, live there?
Mbh.15.22.889 Hearing these words of Sahadeva, queen Draupadi, that foremost of all women duly honouring the king said, with proper salutations, Alas, when shall I see queen Pritha, if, indeed, she be yet alive.
Mbh.15.24.936 Then Sahadeva ran with speed towards the spot where Pritha was.
Mbh.15.24.940 Then seeing the king and Bhimasena and Arjuna, and Nakula, Pritha endeavoured to advance quickly towards them.
Mbh.15.31.1270 Know that this Dhananjaya, the son of Pritha, is the ancient Rishi Nara.
Mbh.15.37.1543 Are Gandhari and Pritha, and the Suta's son Sanjaya also, in peace?
Mbh.15.37.1560 The faultless Pritha, O king, became the eye of Gandhari.
Mbh.15.37.1583 The highly blessed Gandhari, and thy mother Pritha too, remained in the same attitude.
Mbh.15.37.1602 Hearing that Pritha had met with such a fate, the ladies of the royal household tittered loud lamentations of grief.
Mbh.15.38.1614 I grieve, however, for Pritha who, abandoning the blazing prosperity of her sons, became desirous of residing in the woods.
Mbh.15.38.1630 I suppose that Pritha, emaciated and reduced to a form in which all her nerves became visible, must have trembled in fear and cried aloud, saying, O son Yudhishthira, and awaited the terrible approach of the conflagration.
Mbh.15.39.1657 And they also gave similar oblations unto Gandhari and Pritha, naming each separately and mentioning their families.
Mbh.15.39.1663 Uttering the names of Gandhari and Pritha, the king, endued with great energy, made many excellent gifts.
Mbh.16.5.187 SECTION Vaishampayana said: Meanwhile Daruka, going to the Kurus and seeing those mighty car-warriors, the son of Pritha, informed them of how the Vrishnis had slain one another with iron bolts.
Mbh.16.6.212 The broad-chested and mighty-armed son of Pritha, more afflicted than his uncle, with eyes bathed in tears, touched his uncles feet, O Bharata.
Mbh.16.6.245 This kingdom, with all these women, and all the wealth here, is thine now, O son of Pritha.
Mbh.16.7.296 That foremost of car-warriors, that conqueror of hostile towns, the son of Pritha, escorted this vast procession of Vrishnis, which still abounded with wealth, and which looked like a veritable ocean.
Mbh.16.8.355 Seeing that the son of Pritha was exceedingly cheerless and breathing heavy sighs repeatedly and filled with despair, Vyasa addressed him, saying, Hast thou been sprinkled with water from anybodys nails or hair, or the end of anybodys cloth, or from the mouth of a jar?
Mbh.16.8.362 It behoveth thee, O son of Pritha, to tell me all, if, indeed, there be no harm in telling it
Mbh.16.8.413 Vaishampayana continued: Having heard these words of Vyasa of immeasurable energy, the son of Pritha, receiving his permission, returned to the city named after the elephant.
Mbh.17.3.118 SECTION Vaishampayana said: Then Shakra, causing the firmament and the Earth to be filled by a loud sound, came to the son of Pritha on a car and asked him to ascend it.
Mbh.18.2.88 O son of Pritha, let that happiness last longer through thy stay here, for a few moments more.
Mbh.18.3.124 SECTION Vaishampayana said, King Yudhishthira the just, the son of Pritha, had not stayed there for more than a moment when, O thou of Kurus race, all the gods with Indra at their head came to that spot.
Mbh.18.3.162 They are equal to those of Hariscandra, O son of Pritha.
Mbh.18.3.172 Thou art incapable, O son of Pritha, of being swerved from thy nature or reason.
Mbh.18.3.179 O son of Pritha, thy brothers, O king, were not such as to deserve Hell.
