Mbh.3.80.3935 After Nakula's lamentations, Sahadeva said, He who having vanquished mighty warriors in battle won wealth and virgins and brought them unto the king on the occasion of the great Rajasuya sacrifice, that hero of immeasurable splendour who having vanquished single-handed the assembled Yadavas in battle, ravished Subhadra with the consent of Vasudeva, he, who having invaded the dominion of the illustrious Drupada gave, O Bharata, unto the preceptor Drona his tuition fee, beholding, O king, that Jishnu's bed of grass empty in our asylum, my heart refuses consolation.
Mbh.3.82.4077 And it is for this, O Bharata, that that tirtha became known by the name of Saptacharu, and if one offereth Charu there to the seven flamed deity, he obtaineth merit superior to that of the gift of a hundred thousand kine, to that of a hundred Rajasuya sacrifices, as also of a hundred horse-sacrifices.

Mbh.3.253.12492 There is, O lord, another great sacrifice, resembling the Rajasuya.
Mbh.3.253.12500 This mighty sacrifice vies with that best of sacrifices, the Rajasuya itself.
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.3.255.12547 When, O foremost of men, the wicked-minded Pandavas have been slain, and when also the grand Rajasuya hath been celebrated by me, then thou shalt again, O hero, honour me thus'
Mbh.3.255.12548 And having said this, O Bharata, the Kaurava embraced Karna, and began, O mighty king, to think of the Rajasuya, that foremost of sacrifices.
Mbh.3.255.12549 And that best of kings also addressed the Kurus around him, saying, When shall I, ye Kauravas, having slain all the Pandavas, celebrate that costly and foremost of sacrifices, the Rajasuya'
Mbh.5.27.1145 Thou mayst perform the Rajasuya and the Aswamedha sacrifices, but do not even come near an action which in itself is sin!

Mbh.7.67.2855 SECTION LXIX Narada said, Vena's son, king Prithu, O Srinjaya, we hear, fell a prey to death, In the Rajasuya sacrifice he performed, the great Rishis installed him as Emperor of the world.
Mbh.7.102.4746 That sacrificial stake made of gold, O king of Somadatta's son, looked resplendent like the tall stake erected in the foremost of sacrifices called the Rajasuya.
Mbh.8.70.4157 The Rajasuya performed by thee, brought to completion by gift of Dakshina, and the celestial palace owned by thee, were both due to my prowess.
Mbh.9.41.3013 There, in days of yore, Soma himself, O king of kings, had performed the Rajasuya sacrifice.
Mbh.9.47.3505 Endued with great effulgence, Varuna, the highly blessed son of Aditi, had in days of yore performed in that tirtha the Rajasuya sacrifice, O lord of Earth!
Mbh.9.47.3508 After the completion of that foremost of sacrifices, the Rajasuya of Varuna, a terrible battle, O Janamejaya, ensued amongst the Kshatriyas.
Mbh.9.48.3561 Then he saw Jaigishavya in the region of those that perform the Rajasuya and the Pundarika.
Mbh.12.12.510 I have never seen, O monarch, a king in the observance of a life of domesticity renouncing his wealth in any other way except in the Rajasuya, the Astwamedha, and other kinds of sacrifice.
Mbh.12.62.3464 Having studied the Vedas duly and the treatises on the duties of kings, O sinless one, having begotten children and performed other acts of a like nature, having quaffed the Soma and ruled over and protected all his subjects righteously, O foremost of speakers, having performed the Rajasuya, the horse sacrifice, and other great sacrifices, having invited learned Brahmanas for reciting the scriptures and made presents unto them according to their desires, having obtained victories small or great in battle, having placed on his throne the son of his loins or some Kshatriya of good birth for the protection of subjects, having worshipped the Pitris by performing with due rites the sacrifices laid down for honouring them, having attentively worshipped the gods by performing sacrifices and the Rishis by studying the Vedas, the Kshatriya, who in old age desires another mode of life, may, O king, adopt it by leaving that one which immediately precedes it, and by that means he is sure to obtain ascetic success.

Mbh.13.103.9209 Spending a vast sum of money, O Grandsire, and performing eight Rajasuya sacrifices, I gave away unto the Brahmanas that officiated in them a thousand kings whose necks were adorned with garlands of gold, after having vanquished them in battle.
Mbh.13.107.9796 That man who, keeping his senses under control, fasts for a fortnight and takes only one meal on the sixteenth day, and bears himself in this way for a whole year, pouring libations every day on his sacred fire, acquires the high merits that attach to a thousand Rajasuya sacrifices.
Mbh.13.109.9907 He who fasts on the twelfth day of the moon in the month of Magha and worships Krishna as Madhava, for the whole day and night, attains to the merits of the Rajasuya sacrifice, and rescues his own race from misery
Mbh.14.3.67 Do thou, O Yudhishthira, prepare for the Rajasuya, and the horse-sacrifice, as well as, O Bharata, for the Sarvamedha and the Naramedha
Mbh.14.90.4216 The fruit, O Brahmana, of this gift made by thee of a prastha of powdered barley is much greater than what one acquires by many Rajasuya sacrifices with profuse gifts or many Horse-sacrifices.
