See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.7.3.129 Who is there that is competent to vanquish him who could not be vanquished by thee before, although thou, endued with great energy, hadst vanquished Rama himself in battle, that fierce destroyer of the Kshatriya race, worshipped, besides, by the gods and the Danavas?
Mbh.7.10.375 The foremost hero among the Vrishnis, exceedingly brave among all bowmen, equal to Rama himself in knowledge and the use of weapons and in prowess and fame, know, O Sanjaya, that truth and firmness, intelligence and heroism, and knowledge of Brahma, and high weapons, are all in him Satyaki of the Satwata race, as the three worlds are in Kesava.
Mbh.7.11.427 And there where Janardana is, there will be the heroic Rama, equal in strength to ten thousand elephants, resembling the Kailasa peak, decked with garlands of wild flowers, and armed with the plough.
Mbh.7.23.1151 Obtaining weapons then from Bhishma and Drona, Rama and Kripa, prince Sarangadhwaja became, in weapons, the equal of Rukmi and Karna and Arjuna and Achyuta.
Mbh.7.32.1687 The Destroyer himself at the end of the Yuga, Jamadagni's valiant son Rama, and Bhimasena on his car, these three, O king, are spoken of as equal.

Mbh.7.57.2654 Indeed, the mighty-armed Rama slew in battle that descendant of Pulastya's race with all his kinsmen and followers, that Rakshasa who was incapable of being slain by the gods and the Asuras together, that wretch who was a thorn unto the gods and the Brahmanas.
Mbh.7.57.2655 In consequence of his affectionate treatment of his subjects, the celestials worshipped Rama.
Mbh.7.57.2658 And the lord, Rama, also performed a hundred Horse-sacrifices and the great sacrifice called Jaruthya.

Mbh.7.57.2662 Indeed, Rama, the son of Dasaratha, greatly outshone all creatures.
Mbh.7.57.2663 When Rama ruled his kingdom, the Rishis, the gods, and men, all lived together on the earth.
Mbh.7.57.2665 The life-breaths also, called Prana, Apana, Samana, and the others, when Rama ruled his kingdom, all performed their functions.
Mbh.7.57.2672 The subjects, of all the four orders, were engaged in righteous and desirable acts, When the Rakshasas, about this time obstructed the offerings to the Pitris and the worship of the gods in Janasthana, Lord Rama, slaying them, caused those offerings and that worship to be once more given to the Pitris and the gods.
Mbh.7.57.2675 Youthful in shape, of a dark-blue hue, of red eyes, possessed of the tread of an infuriated elephant, with arms reaching down to the knees, and beautiful and massive, of leonine shoulders, of great strength, and beloved by all creatures, Rama ruled his kingdom for eleven thousand years.
Mbh.7.57.2677 While Rama ruled his kingdom, the world became extremely beautiful.
Mbh.7.57.2678 Taking at last his four kinds of subjects with him Rama went to heaven, having established his own line consisting of eight houses on the earth.
Mbh.7.68.2915 SECTION LXX Narada said, Even the great ascetic Rama, the hero worshipped by all heroes, that son of Jamadagni, of great fame, will die, without being contented with the period of his life.
Mbh.7.68.2923 And Rama, on that occasion, slew ten thousand Kshatriyas with his axe.
Mbh.7.68.2925 And when many foremost of Brahmans uttered exclamations, mentioning the name of Rama of Bhrigu's race then the valiant son of Jamadagni, proceeding against the Kashmiras, the Daradas, the Kuntis, the Kshudrakas, the Malavas, the Angas, the Vangas, the Kalingas, the Videhas, the Tamraliptakas, the Rakshovahas, the Vitahotras, the Trigartas, the Martikavatas, counting by thousand, slew them all by means of his whetted shafts.
Mbh.7.68.2928 The sacrificial altar, eighteen nalas high made entirely of gold, and constructed according to the ordinance, full of diverse kinds of jewels and gems, and decked with hundreds of standards, and this earth abounding in domestic and wild animals, were accepted by Kasyapa as sacrificial present made unto him by Rama, the son of Jamadagni.
Mbh.7.68.2929 And Rama also gave him many thousand prodigious elephants, all adorned with gold.
Mbh.7.68.2930 Indeed, freeing the earth from all robbers, and making her teem with honest and graceful inhabitants, Rama gave her away to Kasyapa at his great Horse-sacrifice.
Mbh.7.68.2933 Then Kasyapa said unto Rama, Go out of the earth, at my command'
Mbh.7.93.4298 The battle between those two became fearful to behold, like that which in days of yore had taken place between Rama and Ravana.
Mbh.7.95.4377 Beholding then that superhuman feat of Yuyudhana in battle, Drona, O monarch, thought in his mind, This force of weapons that I see in this foremost one among the Satwatas exists in Rama and Dhananjaya and was seen also in Kartavirya and that tiger among men, viz, Bhishma.
Mbh.7.103.4782 The encounter that then took place between that man and Rakshasa resembled, O king, the battle in days of yore between Rama, and Ravana.
Mbh.7.104.4846 Slaying him, the mighty-armed Sahadeva looked resplendent like Rama, the son of Dasaratha, after slaying the mighty Rakshasa Khara.
Mbh.7.106.4921 Indeed, that encounter between those two foremost of Rakshasas resembled that of old between Rama and Ravana, O lord!
Mbh.7.107.5031 Even if Kesava and Rama, and Aniruddha, and the mighty car-warrior Pradyumna, and Gada, and Sarana, and Samva, with all the Vrishnis, case themselves in mail for assisting us, O king, in the field of battle, I shall yet appoint that tiger among men viz, Satyaki of unbaffled prowess, for our aid, since there is none equal to him'
Mbh.7.139.6958 Slain by me in battle, thou shalt today proceed to the abode of Yama, like Ravana's son Indrajit slain by Lakshmana, the younger brother of Rama.
Mbh.7.154.8235 Upon the slaughter of that bull among men, viz, the heroic Valhika, ten of thy sons, each of whom was equal unto Rama, the son of Dasaratha, in prowess, began to afflict Bhima.
Mbh.7.179.9752 Proud and endued with steady prowess, the Nishada's son, with fingers cased in leathern gloves, looked resplendent like a second Rama.
Mbh.7.192.10655 The high-souled Drona, having obtained the science of weapons from Rama have imparted a knowledge of all the celestial weapons unto his son desirous of seeing the latter adorned with all the accomplishments of a warrior.
Mbh.7.192.10667 Purified by the Vedas and by vows, he is a thorough master of the science of arms, like Rama, the son of Dasharatha.
Mbh.8.2.35 Counsels for thy good had also been uttered in the assembly by Rama and Narada and Kanwa and others.
Mbh.8.2.40 That hero endued with great energy and born of the Vasus themselves, who slew every day car-warriors clad in mail, that high-souled one unto whom Bhrigu's son had given the highest weapons, that warrior who in his childhood had been trained in the science of the bow by Rama, alas, even he hath been slain by Yajnasena's son Shikhandi protected by the Pandavas!
Mbh.8.5.153 Even as Mahendra slew Vritra, and Rama slew Ravana; even as Krishna slew Naraka or Mura in battle; even as the mighty Rama of Bhrigu's race slew the heroic Kartavirya, invincible in battle, with all his kinsmen and friends, after fighting a terrible battle celebrated through the three worlds; even as Skanda slew the Asura Mahisha, and Rudra slew the Asura Andhaka, even so hath Arjuna, O king, in single combat, slain, with all his kinsmen, that foremost of smiters, viz, Karna, who was invincible in battle and upon whom the Dhartarashtras had placed their hopes of victory, and who was the great cause of the hostility with the Pandavas!
Mbh.8.31.1400 That bow, respected by all, Sakra gave to Bhrigu's son Rama.
Mbh.8.31.1403 That formidable bow, the gift of Rama, is superior to Gandiva.
Mbh.8.31.1405 With that bow given to me by Rama I will contend in battle with the son of Pandu.
Mbh.8.34.1793 He had a son endued with energy and every virtue, who became celebrated by the name of Rama.
Mbh.8.34.1797 Sankara, understanding the desire cherished in his heart, showed himself unto Rama.
Mbh.8.34.1798 And Mahadeva said, O Rama, I am gratified with thee.
Mbh.8.34.1806 With penances then, and restraining his senses, and observances of vows, and worship and offerings and with sacrifices and Homa performed with mantras, Rama adored Sarva for many long years.
Mbh.8.34.1807 At last Mahadeva, pleased with the high-souled son of Bhrigu's race, described him, in the presence of his divine spouse, as possessed of many virtues: This Rama, of firm vows is ever devoted to me'
Mbh.8.34.1814 That god, having promised the destruction of their foes unto the celestials, summoned Rama the descendant of Bhrigu.
Mbh.8.34.1815 And Sankara addressed Rama, saying, O descendant of Bhrigu, slay all the assembled foes of the gods, from desire of doing good unto all the worlds as also for my satisfaction'
Mbh.8.34.1816 Thus addressed, Rama replied unto that boon-giving Lord of Three-eyes, saying, What strength have I, O chief of the gods destitute as I am of weapons, to slay in battle the assembled Danavas that are accomplished in weapons and invincible in fight?
Mbh.8.34.1820 Hearing these words and accepting them all, Rama, causing propitiatory rites to be performed for his success, proceeded against the Danavas.
Mbh.8.34.1830 Duryodhana continued, Having obtained all the celestial weapons and the boons that had been desired by him, Rama bowed unto Siva with his head.
Mbh.8.34.1843 Endued with great valour, this disciple of Rama, O king of kings, is a high-souled personage
Mbh.8.37.1969 This foremost of cars covered with tigerskins, with axle producing no sound equipped with a golden seat endued with trivenu made of silver, and unto which are yoked these foremost of steeds, Rama gave unto me.
Mbh.8.40.2130 I recall to my mind the end, declared unto me in past times by my preceptor Rama, of those lions among men, those unreturning heroes, that laid down their lives in battle.
Mbh.8.41.2234 Rama himself, O Karna, before the kings in the Kuru assembly spake of the great prowess of both Partha and Keshava.
Mbh.8.42.2252 The curse, however, of Rama that best of regenerate persons, paineth me greatly today.
Mbh.8.42.2253 I dwelt, in the disguise of a brahmana, with Rama in former days, desirous of obtaining celestial weapons from him.
Mbh.8.66.3819 Of great energy, he had received lessons from Rama in weapons!
Mbh.8.66.3852 In weapons he was equal unto Rama.
Mbh.8.73.4467 The awful form of that weapon which was obtained by Karna from that foremost of sages, viz, Rama of Bhrigu's race, hath been displayed.
Mbh.8.90.5603 The Suta's son destroyed that burning weapon of Arjuna with his own foe-killing weapon of great power which he had obtained from Rama, and which resembled in efficacy an Atharvan rite.
Mbh.8.90.5732 When his car began to reel from the curse of the Brahmana, and when the high weapon he had obtained from Rama no longer shone in him through inward light, and when his terrible snake-mouthed shaft also had been cut off by Partha, Karna became filled with melancholy.
Mbh.9.12.707 Save the ruler of the Madras, or Rama, that delighter of the Yadus, there is none else that can venture to endure the impetuosity of Bhima in battle.
Mbh.9.29.2050 Similarly was the Rakshasa Ravana of Pulastya's race, with his relatives and followers, slain by Rama!
Mbh.9.32.2342 SECTION Sanjaya said, When that fierce battle, O monarch, was about to commence, and when all the high-souled Pandavas had taken their seats, indeed, having heard that battle between those two heroes, both of whom were his disciples, was about to begin, Rama, whose banner bore the device of the palmyra palm, and who owns the plough for his weapon, came to that spot.
Mbh.9.32.2344 Their worship over, they then, O king, said unto him these words, Witness, O Rama, the skill, in battle, of thy two disciples
Mbh.9.32.2345 Rama then casting his eyes on Krishna and the Pandavas, and looking at Duryodhana also of Kuru's race who was standing there armed with mace, said, Two and forty days have passed since I left home.
Mbh.9.32.2353 The other kings honoured him by bidding him welcome, and then all of them said unto Rama, Witness this encounter, O thou of mighty arms
Mbh.9.32.2355 Endued with immeasurable energy, Rama, having embraced the Pandavas and the Srinjayas, enquired after the welfare of all the other kings.
Mbh.9.32.2360 Then Dharma's son, O Bharata, said these words unto that chastiser of foes, the son of Rohini, Behold, O Rama, this formidable encounter between the two brothers
Mbh.9.32.2362 Clad in blue robes and possessed of a fair complexion, Rama, as he sat amidst those kings, looked resplendent like the moon in the firmament, encompassed by multitudes of stars.
Mbh.9.33.2364 SECTION Janamejaya said, On the eve of the great battle between the Kurus and the Pandus, the lord Rama, with Keshava's leave, had gone away from Dwaraka accompanied by many of the Vrishnis.
Mbh.9.33.2366 Having said these words, Rama, that resister of foes, had gone away.
Mbh.9.33.2368 Tell me in detail how Rama came to that spot, how he witnessed the battle.
Mbh.9.33.2383 While proceeding, Rama ordered his servants on the way, saying, Bring all things that are necessary for a pilgrimage, that is, every article of use!
Mbh.9.33.2404 Even thus did the high-souled Rama give away wealth in diverse excellent tirthas on the Sarasvati.
Mbh.9.35.2608 The mighty-armed and illustrious Rama of virtuous soul and unfading glory then proceeded to the tirtha called Nagadhanwana.
Mbh.9.35.2639 As he beheld those many receptacles of water and seeing that foremost of rivers turn her course, wonder filled the heart of the high-souled Rama.
Mbh.9.37.2742 SECTION Vaishampayana said, Having passed one night more, Rama, having the plough for his weapon, worshipped the dwellers of that tirtha and showed his regard for Mankanaka.
Mbh.9.37.2747 Formerly, Rama the son of Dasaratha slew a Rakshasa and hurled his head to a great distance.
Mbh.9.37.2756 Vaishampayana said, Formerly, O tiger among kings, the high-souled Rama the son of Dasaratha lived for some time in the forest of Dandaka, from desire of slaying the Rakshasas.
Mbh.9.38.2836 Giving away diverse kinds of wealth in that foremost of tirthas, Rama also cheerfully gave away milch cows and vehicles and beds, ornaments, and food and drink of the best kinds, O king, unto many foremost of Brahmanas, after having worshipped them duly.
Mbh.9.38.2837 Then, O king, Rama proceeded to the asylum of Vaka which was not very distant from where he was, that asylum in which, as heard by us, Dalvya Vaka had practised the austerest of penances
Mbh.9.39.2881 Having with due rites given unto the Brahmanas steeds and elephants and vehicles with mules yoked unto them and jewels of great value and much wealth, and much corn, the illustrious and mighty-armed Rama then proceeded, O king, to the tirtha called Yayata.
Mbh.9.44.3346 Having bathed in that tirtha and adored Skanda, Rama gave unto the brahmanas gold and clothes and ornaments and other things.
Mbh.9.45.3386 Rama beheld at that spot the excellent woods of Kuvera.
Mbh.9.46.3395 SECTION Vaishampayana said, Rama as already said then proceeded to the tirtha called Vadarapachana where dwelt many ascetics and Siddhas.
Mbh.9.47.3498 He then proceeded to that auspicious and foremost of tirthas called after the name of Rama.
Mbh.9.47.3499 The highly blessed Rama of Bhrigu's race, endued with great ascetic merit, repeatedly subjugated the Earth and slew all the foremost of Kshatriyas.
Mbh.9.47.3500 After achieving such feats Rama performed in that tirtha a Vajapeya sacrifice and a hundred horse sacrifices through the assistance of his preceptor Kasyapa, that best of Munis.
Mbh.9.47.3501 There, as sacrificial fee, Rama gave unto his preceptor the whole earth with her oceans.
Mbh.9.47.3502 The great Rama, having duly bathed there, made presents unto the Brahmanas, O Janamejaya, and worshipped them thus.
Mbh.9.51.3708 SECTION The Rishis said, O Rama, this Samantapanchaka is said to be the eternal northern altar of Brahman, the Lord of all creatures.
Mbh.9.51.3712 Rama said, For what reason did the high-souled Kuru cultivate this field?
Mbh.9.51.3714 The Rishis said, In days of yore, O Rama, Kuru was engaged in perseveringly tilling the soil of this field.
Mbh.9.51.3742 The space between the Tarantuka and the Arantuka and the lakes of Rama and Shamachakra, is known as Kurukshetra.
Mbh.9.52.3752 Those high-souled ones, O king, said unto Baladeva, Listen in detail, O Rama, as to whose asylum this was in days of yore!
Mbh.9.52.3764 Passing one night there with the ascetics and the Brahmanas, Rama then proceeded to the sacred asylum of the Mitra-Varunas.
Mbh.9.52.3768 There where Rama sat in the midst of that conclave, the adorable Rishi Narada came in course of his wandering.
Mbh.9.52.3771 A provoker of quarrels and ever fond of quarrels, the celestial Rishi came to that spot where the handsome Rama was resting.
Mbh.9.52.3772 Standing up and sufficiently honouring the celestial Rishi of regulated vows, Rama asked him about all that had happened to the Kurus.
Mbh.9.52.3784 These also, O Rama, have from fear fled away to the ten points of the compass!
Mbh.9.52.3787 Pierced with wordy darts, O Rama, from every side, the mighty and heroic Duryodhana hath risen from the lake armed with his heavy mace.
Mbh.9.52.3789 Their terrible encounter, O Rama, will take place today!
Mbh.9.52.3792 Vaishampayana continued, Hearing these words of Narada, Rama bade a respectful farewell to those foremost of Brahmanas and dismissed all those that had accompanied him in his pilgrimage.
Mbh.9.52.3795 Having listened to the discourse of the sages about the great merits of tirthas, Rama of unfading glory sang this verse in the midst of the Brahmanas, Where else is such happiness as that in a residence by the Sarasvati?
Mbh.9.53.3805 King Dhritarashtra, in great sorrow, said these words with reference to it: Dhritarashtra said, Beholding Rama approach that spot when the mace-fight was about to happen, how, O Sanjaya, did my son fight Bhima'
Mbh.9.53.3806 Sanjaya said, Beholding the presence of Rama, thy valiant son, Duryodhana of mighty arms, desirous of battle, became full of joy.
Mbh.9.53.3809 Rama then answered Yudhishthira in these sweet and righteous words that were highly beneficial to heroes, I have heard it said by the Rishis, O best of kings, that Kurukshetra is a highly sacred and sin-cleansing spot, equal to heaven itself, adored by gods and Rishis and high-souled Brahmanas!
Mbh.9.53.3830 Each resembling Vasudeva, or Rama, or Visravana's son Ravana, they looked, O monarch, like Madhu and Kaitabha.
Mbh.9.53.3831 Each like the other in feats, they looked like Sunda and Upasunda, or Rama and Ravana, or Vali and Sugriva.
Mbh.9.53.3848 Then Duryodhana, O monarch, said these proud words unto Yudhishthira in the midst of his brothers and of the high-souled Krishna and Rama of immeasurable energy, Protected by the Kaikeyas and the Srinjayas and the high-souled Pancalas, behold ye with all those foremost of kings, seated together, this battle that is about to take place between me and Bhima'
Mbh.9.58.4165 Sanjaya said, Beholding thy son struck at the thighs, the mighty Rama, that foremost of smiters, became exceedingly angry.
Mbh.9.58.4173 While uttering these words, Rama gave way to great wrath.
Mbh.9.58.4176 The mighty Keshava, however, ever bending with humanity, seized the rushing Rama encircling him with his massive and well-rounded arms.
Mbh.9.58.4178 For pacifying the angry Rama, Keshava addressed him, saying, There are six kinds of advancement that a person may have: one's own advancement, the advancement of one's friends, the advancement of one's friends, the decay of one's enemy, the decay of one's enemy's friends, and the decay of one's enemy's friends' friends.
Mbh.9.58.4200 Sanjaya continued, Hearing this fallacious discourse from Keshava, O king, Rama failed to dispel his wrath and became cheerful.
Mbh.9.58.4206 The Pancalas with the Vrishnis, as also the Pandavas, O monarch, became rather cheerless after Rama had set out for Dwaravati.
Mbh.10.9.697 The valiant Rama of Yadu's race, O king, always used to say that there is no one equal to Duryodhana in encounters with the mace.
Mbh.10.12.863 Rama of great might never said such words to me!
Mbh.12.2.84 When Drona had answered thus, Karna, having worshipped him, obtained his leave, and proceeded without delay to Rama then residing on the Mahendra mountains.
Mbh.12.2.85 Approaching Rama, he bent his head unto him and said, I am a Brahmana of Bhrigu's race'
Mbh.12.2.87 With this knowledge about his birth and family, Rama received him kindly and said, Thou art welcome'
Mbh.12.2.105 Thus addressed by the Brahmana, Karna, hanging down his head from cheerlessness, returned timidly to Rama, reflecting on that matter'
Mbh.12.3.106 SECTION III Narada said, That tiger of Bhrigu's race viz, Rama, was well-pleased with the might of Karna's arms, his affection for him, his self-restraint, and the services he did unto his preceptor.
Mbh.12.3.107 Observant of ascetic penances, Rama cheerfully communicated, with due forms, unto his penance-observing disciple, everything about the Brahma weapon with the mantras for withdrawing it.
Mbh.12.3.109 One day Rama of great intelligence, while roving with Karna in the vicinity or his retreat, felt very weak in consequence of the fasts he had undergone.
Mbh.12.3.115 When at last Karna's blood touched the body of Rama of great energy, the latter awoke and said these words in fear, Alas, I have been made impure!
Mbh.12.3.118 Rama saw that worm which resembled a hog in shape.
Mbh.12.3.121 As soon as Rama cast his, eyes on it, the worm gave up its life-breath, melting in that blood which it had drawn.
Mbh.12.3.123 Then in the welkin was seen a Rakshasa of terrible form, dark in hue, of a red neck, capable of assuming any form at wilt, and staying on the clouds, his object fulfilled, the Rakshasa, with joined hands, addressed Rama, saying, O best of ascetics, thou hast rescued me from this hell!
Mbh.12.3.135 This curse shall end through Rama of my race.
Mbh.12.3.138 Having said these words, the great Asura, bending his head unto Rama went away.
Mbh.12.3.139 Then Rama wrathfully addressed Karna, saying, O fool, no Brahmana could endure such agony.
Mbh.12.3.151 Thus addressed by Rama, Karna came away, having duty taken his leave.
Mbh.12.5.190 In consequence of a Brahmana's curse, as also of the curse of the illustrious Rama, of the boon granted to Kunti and the illusion practised on him by Indra, of his depreciation by Bhishma as only half a car-warrior, at the tale of Rathas and Atirathas, of the destruction of his energy caused by Salya with his keen speeches, of Vasudeva's policy, and, lastly of the celestial weapons obtained by Arjuna from Rudra and Indra and Yama and Varuna and Kuvera and Drona and the illustrious Kripa, the wielder of Gandiva succeeded in slaying Vikartana's son Karna of effulgence like that of Surya himself.
Mbh.12.27.1210 That scion of Kuru's race who with bow and shaft in hand had contended in fierce battle for many days with Rama himself of Bhrigu's line on the field sanctified by Kuru, that son of Ganga, that hero, who, at Baranasi, for the sake of brides, had, on a single car, challenged to battle the assembled Kshatriyas of the world, he who had burnt by the energy of his weapons that irresistible and foremost of kings, viz, Ugrayudha, alas, that hero has been caused by me to be slain in battle.
Mbh.12.29.1417 We hear, O Srinjaya, that Rama also, the son of Dasaratha, fell a prey to death.
Mbh.12.29.1420 Indeed, Rama in governing his kingdom always acted like his father Dasaratha.
Mbh.12.29.1424 As long as Rama governed it, there was no fear in his kingdom of any disease.
Mbh.12.29.1429 Contented, crowned with fruition in respect of all the objects of their desire, fearless, free, and wedded to the vow of truth, were all the people when Rama governed the kingdom.
Mbh.12.29.1432 Having dwelt, in the observance of severe penances, for four and ten years in the woods, Rama performed ten Horse-sacrifices of great splendour and to them the freest access was given to all.
Mbh.12.37.1983 The bull among men obtained all weapons from Rama and Sakra.
Mbh.12.46.2262 I was thinking of him who fought continually for three and twenty days with Rama himself of Bhrigu's race and whom Rama was unable to overcome.
Mbh.12.46.2267 I was thinking of him, O son of Pandu, who is the favourite disciple of Rama, the son of Jamadagni, and who is the receptacle of the sciences.
Mbh.12.47.2294 Surrounded by Vyasa conversant with the Vedas by the celestial Rishi Narada, by Devasthana, by Asmaka Sumantu, by Jaimini, by the high-souled Paila, by Sandilya, by Devarata, by Maitreya of great intelligence, by Asita and Vasishtha and the high-souled Kausika, by Harita and Lomasa and Atri's son of great intelligence, by Vrihaspati and Sukra and the great sage Chyavana, by Sanatkumara and Kapila and Valmiki and Tumvuru and Kuru, by Maudgalya and Rama of Bhrigu's race, and the great sage Trinavindu, by Pippalada and Vayu and Samvarta and Pulaha and Katha, by Kasyapa and Pulastya and Kratu and Daksha and Parasara, by Marichi and Angiras and Kasmya and Gautama and the sage Galava, by Dhaumya and Vibhanda and Mandavya and Dhaumra and Krishnanubhautika, by Uluka, that foremost of Brahmanas and the great sage Markandeya, by Bhaskari and Purana and Krishna and Suta, that foremost of virtuous persons, surrounded by these and many other highly-blessed sages of great souls and possessed of faith and self-restraint and tranquillity of mind, the Kuru hero looked like the Moon in the midst of the planets and the stars.
Mbh.12.48.2547 While proceeding, the mighty-armed Kesava, that delighter of all the Yadavas, spoke unto Yudhishthira about the prowess of Jamadagni's son, Yonder, at a distance, O Partha, are seen the five lakes of Rama!
Mbh.12.48.2548 There Rama offered oblations of Kshatriya blood unto the manes of his ancestors.
Mbh.12.48.2549 It was hither that the puissant Rama, having freed the earth of Kshatriya for thrice seven times, gave up his task
Mbh.12.48.2551 When the very Kshatriya seed was burnt by Rama, O bull among the Yadus, how was the Kshatriya order revived, O thou of immeasurable prowess?
Mbh.12.48.2552 How, O bull of the Yadus, was the Kshatriya order exterminated by the illustrious and high-souled Rama, and how did it again grow?
Mbh.12.48.2555 For what reason was the Kshatriya order thus exterminated in days of yore by Rama, the high-souled descendant of Bhrigu, O tiger among the Yadus?
Mbh.12.49.2607 Like unto a blazing fire, that son was Rama, the exterminator of the Kshatriyas.
Mbh.12.49.2615 Possessed of great energy, Apava, O mighty-armed king, seeing his retreat consumed by the powerful Kshatriya, cursed that monarch in wrath, saying, Since, O Arjuna, without excepting these my specious woods, thou hast burnt them, therefore, Rama of Bhrigu's race will lop off thy thousand arm.
Mbh.12.49.2620 The puissant Rama, the son of Jamadagni, filled with wrath, lopped off the arms of Arjuna and brought back, O monarch, his sire's calf which was wandering within the inner enclosures of the king's palace.
Mbh.12.49.2621 Then the foolish son of Arjuna, repairing together to the retreat of the high-souled Jamadagni, felled with the points of their lances, O king, the head of the Rishi from off his trunk while the celebrated Rama was out for fetching sacred fuel and grass.
Mbh.12.49.2622 Inflamed with wrath at the death of his father and inspired with vengeance, Rama vowed to free the earth of Kshatriyas and took up arms.
Mbh.12.49.2627 Afterwards, when some thousands of years had passed away, the puissant Rama, who was wrathful by nature, had imputations cast upon him of cowardice.
Mbh.12.49.2628 The grandson of Viswamitra and son of Raivya, possessed of great ascetic merit, named Paravasu, O monarch, began to cast imputations on Rama in public, saying, O Rama, were not those righteous men, viz, Pratardana and others, who were assembled at a sacrifice at the time of Yayati's fall, Kshatriyas by birth?
Mbh.12.49.2629 Thou art not of true vows, O Rama!
Mbh.12.49.2633 Those Kshatriyas, however, O king, counting by hundreds, that were spared by Rama, multiplied in time and became mighty monarchs on earth.
Mbh.12.49.2634 Rama once more slaughtered them quickly, not sparing the very children, O king!
Mbh.12.49.2636 As soon as Kshatriya children were born, Rama slaughtered them.
Mbh.12.49.2640 It behoveth thee not, O Rama, to reside within what is my dominion'
Mbh.12.49.2666 Their sires and grandsires have been slain for my sake by Rama Of great prowess.
Mbh.12.50.2674 SECTION LI Vaisampayana said, King Yudhishthira, hearing of those feats of Rama, became filled with wonder and said unto Janardana, O thou of Vrishni's race, the prowess of the high-souled Rama, who in wrath had freed the earth of Kshatriyas, was like that of Sakra himself.
Mbh.12.50.2675 The scions of Kshatriyas, troubled with the fear of Rama, were concealed and brought up by kine, Ocean, leopards, bears and apes.
Mbh.12.115.6514 I heard it in the hermitage of Rama, the son of Jamadagni, recited by many foremost of Rishis.
Mbh.12.121.6856 There, on that peak of Himavat, near the golden mountains of Merit, the great Brahmana here Rama, sitting under the shade of a well-known banian, had tied his matted locks together
Mbh.12.142.8699 Bhishma said, Listen, O king, to this excellent story that cleanses the hearer of every sin, the story, viz, that Bhrigu's son Rama had recited to king Muchukunda.
Mbh.12.152.9158 It is heard that a Sudra named Samvuka having been slain and righteousness having been upheld by Rama of true prowess, a dead Brahmana child was restored to life
Mbh.12.206.12466 Bhishma said, I have heard of this subject from Jamadagni's son Rama, while he discoursed on it, from the celestial Rishi Narada, and from Krishna-Dwaipayana.
Mbh.12.233.14486 Nimi, the ruler of the Videhas, gave away his kingdom, Jamadagni's son Rama gave away the whole earth; and Gaya gave away the earth with all her towns and cities, unto the Brahmanas.
Mbh.12.292.18304 Then, again, Asita and Devala, and Narada and Parvata, and Karkshivat, and Jamadagni's son Rama, and Tandya possessed of cleansed soul, and Vasishtha, and Jamadagni, and Viswamitra and Atri, and Bharadwaja, and Harismasru, and Kundadhara, and Srutasravas, these great Rishis, by adoring Vishnu with concentrated minds with the aid of Richs, and by penances, succeeded in attaining to success through the grace of that great deity endued with intelligence.
Mbh.12.338.21742 Thou art Hanuman that bore Rama on his shoulders.
Mbh.12.339.21934 In the Treta age I shall take birth as Rama in the race of Bhrigu, and exterminate the Kshatriyas who will become proud of their strength and possessions.
Mbh.12.339.21935 Towards the close of Treta and the beginning of Dwapara, I shall take birth as Rama, the son of Dasaratha in Iskshaku's royal line.
Mbh.12.339.21955 Appearing in the forms of a swan, a tortoise, a fish, O foremost of regenerate ones, I shall then display myself as a boar, then as a Man-lion Nrisingha, then as a dwarf, then as Rama of Bhrigu's race, then as Rama, the son of Dasaratha, then as Krishna the scion of the Sattwata race, and lastly as Kalki.
Mbh.12.359.23785 By succumbing to the influence of wrath, the ten-headed Ravana of great prowess, became the rival of Sakra and was for that reason slain by Rama in battle.
Mbh.12.359.23786 Hearing that the Rishi Rama of Bhrigu's race had entered the inner apartments of their palace for bringing away the calf of the Homa cow of their sire, the sons of Karttaviryya, yielding to wrath, took such entry as an insult to their royal house, and as the consequence thereof, they met with destruction at the hands of Rama.
Mbh.12.359.23787 Indeed, Karttaviryya of great strength, resembling the Thousand-eyed Indra himself, in consequence of his having yielded to wrath, was slain in battle by Rama of Jamadagni's race.
Mbh.12.363.23893 On the occasion, again, of my dreadful encounter with Rama of Bhrigu's race on the field of Kurukshetra, the celestial Vasus, O king, recited this history to me
Mbh.13.6.413 Aswatthaman and Rama, though both warriors and sons of Munis, failed to attain to heaven by reason of their own actions in this world.
Mbh.13.14.910 Bidding them farewell with a sorrowful heart, I then repaired to Gada and to Rama of great might.
Mbh.13.14.1333 I beheld also another weapon, viz, that sharp-edged battle-axe which, in days of yore, was given unto Rama by the gratified Mahadeva for enabling him to exterminate the Kshatriyas.
Mbh.13.14.1334 It was with this weapon that Rama of Bhrigu's race slew in dreadful battle the great Karttaviryya who was the ruler of all the world.
Mbh.13.17.2107 Thou art the mighty ape Hanuman that aided Vishnu in the incarnation of Rama in his expedition against Ravana.
Mbh.13.26.3513 There were also Nitambhu and Bhuvana and Dhaumya and Satananda and Akritavrana and Rama, the son of Jamadagni and Kacha.
Mbh.13.52.5261 I have a great curiosity with respect to Jamadagni's son, O lord, viz, Rama, that foremost of all righteous persons.
Mbh.13.52.5263 How was Rama born who was endued with prowess incapable of being baffled?
Mbh.13.52.5268 Great, without doubt, was the puissance of the high-souled Rama, O chief of men, as also of Viswamitra.
Mbh.13.56.5636 The birth of Rama of Bhrigu's race and of Viswamitra of Kusika's race happened in the way that Chyavana had indicated
Mbh.13.62.6006 Hearing that verse Jamadagni's son Rama gave away the whole earth unto Kasyapa.
Mbh.13.74.6820 Indra imparted it unto Dasaratha, and Dasaratha in his turn unto his son Rama, Rama of Raghu's race imparted it unto his dear brother Lakshmana of great fame.
Mbh.13.76.6985 Somaka, Pururavas, Bharata of imperial sway to whose race belongs all the Bharatas, the heroic Rama the son of Dasaratha, and many other celebrated kings of great achievement, and also king Dilipa of widely known deeds, all, in consequence of their gifts of kine agreeable to the ritual, attained to Heaven.
Mbh.13.84.7504 It was first recited to Rama, the son of Jamadagni In former days Jamadagni's son Rama, filled with great wrath, exterminated the Kshatriyas from off the face of the earth for thrice seven times.
Mbh.13.84.7505 Having subjugated the entire earth the heroic Rama of eyes like lotus-petals began to make preparations for performing a Horse-sacrifice, O king, that is praised by all Brahmanas and Kshatriyas and that is capable of granting the fruition of every wish.
Mbh.13.84.7507 Endued with great energy, Rama, by the performance of that sacrifice became purified.
Mbh.13.84.7508 Having, however, performed that foremost of sacrifices, the high-souled Rama failed yet to attain to perfect lightness of heart.
Mbh.13.84.7509 Repairing unto Rishis conversant with every branch of learning as also the deities, Rama of Bhrigu's race questioned them.
Mbh.13.84.7511 Thus addressed by him, those great Rishis, fully acquainted with the Vedas and the scriptures, answered him, saying, O Rama, guided by the authority of the Vedas, do thou honour all learned Brahmanas.
Mbh.13.84.7528 Then the illustrious Vasishtha in especial, of rigid vows, addressing him, said, Hear, O Rama, how gold, which has the splendour of fire sprang into existence.
Mbh.13.85.7751 Vasishtha continued, This history also, O Rama, called Brahmadarsana, was heard by me in days of yore, respecting the achievement of the Grandsire Brahman who is identifiable with the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.13.86.7974 Even thus, O son of Kuru's race, did Vasishtha recite this discourse unto Rama of Bhrigu's race in days of old.
Mbh.13.86.7976 By making gifts of Gold, Rama became cleansed of all his sins, and finally attained to a high place in heaven that is unattainable by other men
Mbh.13.115.10352 These other kings also, viz, Syenachitra, O monarch, and Somaka and Vrika and Raivata and Rantideva and Vasu and Srinjaya, and Dushmanta and Karushma and Rama and Alarka and Nala, and Virupaswa and Nimi and Janaka of great intelligence, and Aila and Prithu and Virasena, and Ikshvaku, and Sambhu, and Sweta, and Sagara, and Aja and Dhundhu and Suvahu, and Haryaswa and Kshupa and Bharata, O monarch, did not eat flesh for the month of Karttika and as the consequence thereof attained to heaven, and endued with prosperity, blazed forth with effulgence in the region of Brahman, adored by Gandharvas and surrounded by thousand damsels of great beauty.
Mbh.13.137.11348 The far-famed Rama, the son of Jamadagni, attained to the eternal regions, far beyond his expectation, by giving lands to Brahmanas.
Mbh.13.137.11350 Rama, the son of Dasaratha, whose fame is very high in this world, attained to the eternal regions by making gifts of wealth at sacrifices.
Mbh.13.147.12366 He that is Rama is Hrishikesa.

Mbh.13.168.13855 He could not be vanquished by even Rama of Jamadagni's race with his celestial weapons of great energy.
Mbh.14.3.68 And then as Dasaratha's son, Rama, or as Dushmanta's and Sakuntala's son, thy ancestor, the lord of the Earth, the exceedingly puissant king Bharata, had done, do thou agreeably to the ordinance celebrate the Horse-sacrifice with Dakshinas.
Mbh.14.29.1161 Arrived at that retreat, he found Rama himself.
Mbh.14.29.1162 With his kinsmen he began to do many acts that were hostile to Rama, and caused much trouble to that high-souled hero.
Mbh.14.29.1163 Then the energy, which was immeasurable of Rama blazed forth, burning the troops of the foe, O lotus-eyed one.
Mbh.14.29.1164 Taking up his battle-axe, Rama suddenly put forth his power, and hacked that thousand-armed hero, like a tree of many branches.
Mbh.14.29.1165 Beholding him slain and prostrated on the earth, all his kinsmen, uniting together, and taking up their darts, rushed at Rama, who was then seated, from all sides.
Mbh.14.29.1166 Rama also, taking up his bow and quickly ascending on his car, shot showers of arrows and chastised the army of the king.
Mbh.14.29.1168 Of them that were unable, through fear of Rama, to discharge the duties ordained for their order, the progeny became Vrishalas owing to their inability to find Brahmanas

Mbh.14.29.1176 Rama, however, unable to forgive the slaughter of his sire, replied unto those Rishis saying, It behoves you not to forbid me'
Mbh.14.30.1238 Do thou know this, O Rama.

Mbh.16.1.32 Ye wicked and cruel ones, intoxicated with pride, through that iron bolt ye will become the exterminators of your race with the exception of Rama and Janarddana.
Mbh.16.1.45 At the command of Ahuka, of Janarddana, of Rama, and of the high-souled Vabhru, it was, again, proclaimed throughout the city that from that day, among all the Vrishnis and the Andhakas no one should manufacture wines and intoxicating spirits of any kind, and that whoever would secretly manufacture wines and spirits should be impaled alive with all his kinsmen.
