See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.2.445 Then the glory of Rudra in connection with the burning of the three cities.
Mbh.1.2.475 And seeing that Rakshasa obstructing all his weapons, the son of Drona speedily pacified by worship the three-eyed Rudra.
Mbh.1.19.1430 Then the divine Nara appeared at the scene of the dreadful conflict between the Asuras and the Ganas the followers of Rudra, and reducing to dust those rocks by means of his gold-headed arrows, he covered the heavens with dust.
Mbh.1.40.2125 One day, having pierced a deer with a sharp arrow and slung his bow on his back, he penetrated into the deep forest, searching for the animal here and there, like the illustrious Rudra himself of old pursuing in the heavens, bow in hand, the deer which was Sacrifice, itself turned into that shape, after the piercing.
Mbh.1.65.3275 And blessed with good fortune, Vana was a follower of Rudra, and was known also by the name of Mahakala.

Mbh.1.139.7418 Some call him the offspring of Agni; some, of Krittika, some, of Rudra, and some of Ganga.
Mbh.1.224.10966 Go unto Rudra!
Mbh.1.224.10978 Hearing these words of Rudra of immeasurable energy, the royal sage bowed unto that deity and replied, saying, O illustrious one, O thou that art worshipped by the three worlds, if thou hast been gratified with me, then, O god of gods, assist me thyself, O lord of the celestials, in my sacrifice'
Mbh.1.224.10980 And Rudra continued, If, O king of kings, thou canst, for twelve years, pour without intermission libations of clarified butter into the fire, thyself leading all the while the life of a Brahmacharin with rapt attention, then thou shalt obtain from me what thou askest'
Mbh.1.224.10981 King Swetaki, thus addressed by Rudra, did all that he was directed to do by the wielder of the trident.
Mbh.1.224.10990 Hearing these words uttered by Rudra, the king, returning to his own capital, began to collect all that was necessary.
Mbh.1.224.10991 After everything had been collected, the monarch again presented himself before Rudra and said, Every necessary article hath been collected, and all my preparations are complete, through thy grace, O god of gods!
Mbh.1.224.10993 Having heard these words of that illustrious king, Rudra summoned Durvasa before him and said.
Mbh.1.224.10996 And the Rishi Durvasa said unto Rudra, So be it'
Mbh.2.19.843 This prince of Magadha, the mightiest of all men in the world, will behold with his physical eyes the god of gods called Rudra or Hara, the slayer of Tripura.
Mbh.2.22.985 But thou, O king, treating other kings with cruelty, seekest to offer them as sacrifice unto the god Rudra!
Mbh.3.3.196 Ravi, Gabhastimat, Aja, Kala, Mrityu, Dhatri, Prabhakara, Prithibi, Apa, Teja, Kha, Vayu, the sole stay, Soma, Vrihaspati, Sukra, Budha, Angaraka, Indra, Vivaswat, Diptanshu, Suchi, Sauri, Sanaichara, Brahma, Vishnu, Rudra, Skanda, Vaisravana, Yama, Vaidyutagni, Jatharagni, Aindhna, Tejasampati, Dharmadhwaja, Veda-karttri, Vedanga, Vedavahana, Krita, Treta, Dwapara, Kali, full of every impurity, Kala, Kastha, Muhurtta, Kshapa, Yama, and Kshana; Samvatsara-kara, Aswattha, Kalachakra, Bibhavasu, Purusha, Saswata, Yogin, Vyaktavyakta, Sanatana, Kaladhyaksha, Prajadhyaksha, Viswakarma, Tamounda, Varuna, Sagara, Ansu, Jimuta, Jivana, Arihan, Bhutasraya, Bhutapati, Srastri, Samvartaka, Vanhi, Sarvadi, Alolupa, Ananta, Kapila, Bhanu, Kamada, Sarvatomukha, Jaya, Visala, Varada, Manas, Suparna, Bhutadi, Sighraga, Prandharana, Dhanwantari, Dhumaketu, Adideva, Aditisuta, Dwadasatman, Aravindaksha, Pitri, Matri, Pitamaha, Swarga-dwara, Prajadwara, Mokshadwara, Tripistapa, Dehakarti, Prasantatman, Viswatman, Viswatomukha, Characharatman, Sukhsmatman, the merciful Maitreya.
Mbh.3.12.614 O slayer of all foes, having floated on the primordial waters, thou subsequently becamest Hari and Brahma and Surya and Dharma, and Dhatri and Yama and Anala and Vasu, and Vaisravana, and Rudra, and Kala and the firmament the earth, and the ten directions!
Mbh.3.36.1888 And let Arjuna, O son of Pandu, go unto Mahendra and Rudra, and Varuna, and Kuvera, and Yama, for receiving weapon from them.
Mbh.3.36.1891 Of mighty arms, he will achieve mighty deeds, having obtained weapons from Indra, and Rudra, and the Lokapalas, O son of Kunti, think also of going from this to some other forest that may, O king, be fit for thy abode.
Mbh.3.39.2072 Is he Rudra himself, or some other god, or a Yaksha, or an Asura?
Mbh.3.39.2075 Whether he is a god or a Yaksha, in fact, anybody except Rudra, I shall soon send him, with my shafts, to the regions of Yama'
Mbh.3.39.2124 O Hari, O Rudra, I bow to thee.
Mbh.3.82.4046 Having bathed there and worshipped Rudra surrounded by the other gods, one is freed from all sins since birth.
Mbh.3.82.4084 There also is another tirtha of Rudra called Kamakhya, which is much resorted to by the gods.
Mbh.3.83.4269 And believing that there was nothing better and greater than the god Rudra, he began to adore him in these words: O holder of the trident, thou art the refuge of the celestials and the Asuras, of, indeed, the universe.
Mbh.3.83.4332 And, O royal son of the Kuru race, the wife also of Rudra is present there.
Mbh.3.84.4406 There in days of old, Vishnu had paid his adorations to Rudra, for his grace, and obtaineth also many boons difficult of acquisition even by the gods.
Mbh.3.91.4908 O bull of the Bharata race, Partha hath obtained from Rudra that incomparable weapon for the acquisition of which thou hadst sent him to heaven.
Mbh.3.91.4909 That fierce weapon, known by the name of Brahma-sira which arose after Amrita, and which Rudra had obtained by means of ascetic austerities, hath been acquired by Arjuna together with the Mantras for hurling and withdrawing it, and the rites of expiation and revival.
Mbh.3.106.5446 Having said this to him, the god Rudra Siva vanished from sight at that very spot, and that same king Sagara now came back to his own abode accompanied by his two wives, exceedingly delighted at heart for what had happened then.
Mbh.3.114.5875 And at the very spot it was that the god Rudra, O king of kings, seized the sacrificial beast and exclaimed, This is my share'
Mbh.3.114.5877 Then they addressed words of glorification of a pleasing kind to the god Rudra.
Mbh.3.114.5880 Thereupon what happened to Rudra, learn from me, O Yudhishthira!
Mbh.3.114.5881 Influenced by the dread of Rudra, the gods set apart for evermore, the best allotment out of all shares, such as was fresh and not stale to be appropriated by the god.
Mbh.3.118.6065 Then the king beheld the holy and delightful shrines of all the gods and of the Vasus, and of the hosts of wind and of the two celestial physicians and of Yama, son of the sun and of the lord of riches, and of Indra, and of Vishnu, and of the lord Creator and of Siva, and of the moon, and of the author of day, and of the lord of waters, and of the host of Sadhyas, and of Brahma, and of the forefathers, and of Rudra together with all his followers, and of the goddess of learning, and of the host of Siddhas, and of many immortal holy gods besides.
Mbh.3.166.8307 Have the lord of the celestials and Rudra gladly granted thee the weapons?
Mbh.3.216.11053 O worshipful sir, I long to be enlightened on all these points, How the Kumara was born, how he came to be known as the son of Agni the fire-god and how he was begotten by Rudra or Ganga and Krittika.
Mbh.3.227.11424 Those persons who desire to have sons born to them, worship in their places the powerful Rudra in the form of the Fire-god, and Uma in the form of Swaha.
Mbh.3.228.11471 The Fire-god is called Rudra by Brahmanas, and from this fact Skanda is called the son of Rudra.
Mbh.3.228.11473 And as Rudra was seen by all the dwellers of heaven to heap honours on the excellent Guha Skanda, he was for that reason reputed as the son of Rudra.
Mbh.3.228.11474 This child had his being by the action of Rudra entering into the constitution of the Fire-god, and for this reason, Skanda came to be known as the son of Rudra.
Mbh.3.228.11475 And, O Bharata, as Rudra, the Fire-god, Swaha, and the six wives of the seven Rishis were instrumental to the birth of the great god Skanda, he was for that reason reputed as the son of Rudra.
Mbh.3.229.11556 Arya acts the same part among female beings, as Rudra does among male ones.
Mbh.3.230.11585 Rudra coalescing with Agni the Fire-god and Uma with Swaha have combined to make thee invincible for the well-being of all creatures.
Mbh.3.230.11586 And the semen of the high-souled Rudra cast into the reproductive organ of Uma was thrown back upon this hill, and hence the twin Mujika and Minjika came into being.
Mbh.3.230.11591 The twin Mujika and Minjika begotten by Rudra must always be respected by persons desiring the welfare of little children; and persons who desire to have children born to them must always worship those female spirits who live on human flesh and are produced in trees.
Mbh.3.230.11615 And the trident Vijaya was followed by the Pattisa of Rudra guarded by maces, balls, clubs and other excellent weapons.
Mbh.3.230.11616 And the Pattisa, O king, was followed by the bright umbrella of Rudra and the Kamandalu served by the Maharshis; and on it progressed in the company of Bhrigu, Angiras and others.
Mbh.3.230.11617 And behind all these rode Rudra in his white chariot, re-assuring the gods with the exhibition of his powers.
Mbh.3.230.11624 And that foremost of Rakshasas, by name Pingala, the friend of Rudra, who is always busy in places where corpses are burnt, and who is agreeable to all people, marched with them merrily, at one time going ahead of the army, and falling behind again at another, his movements being uncertain.
Mbh.3.230.11625 Virtuous actions are the offerings with which the god Rudra is worshipped by mortals.
Mbh.3.230.11633 Rudra said, Thou shall always find me in the field of action.
Mbh.3.230.11669 And Mahisha was greatly enraged at this, and he quickly advanced towards the chariot of Rudra; and reaching near, he seized its pole with his hands.
Mbh.3.230.11670 And when Mahisha in a fit of rage had thus seized the chariot of Rudra, all the Earth began to groan and the great Rishis lost their senses.
Mbh.3.230.11672 And although that adorable god Rudra was in that plight, yet he did not think it worth while to kill Mahisha in battle; he remembered that Skanda would deal the deathblow to that evil-minded Asura.
Mbh.3.230.11673 And the fiery Mahisha, contemplating with satisfaction the prize the chariot of Rudra which he had secured, sounded his war-cry, to the great alarm of the gods and the joy of the Daityas.
Mbh.3.230.11696 And Rudra returned to Bhadravata, and the celestials too returned to their respective abodes.
Mbh.3.230.11697 And Rudra spoke, addressing the gods, Ye must render allegiance to Skanda just as ye do unto me'
Mbh.3.230.11701 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by the Pandava in that assembly of Rishis, the worshipful Markandeya of high ascetic merit replied, Agneya Son of Agni, Skanda Cast-off, Diptakirti Of blazing fame, Anamaya Always hale, Mayuraketu Peacock-bannered, Dharmatman The virtuous-souled, Bhutesa The lord of all creatures, Mahishardana The slayer of Mahisha, Kamajit The subjugator of desires, Kamada The fulfiller of desires, Kanta The handsome, Satyavak The truthful in speech, Bhuvaneswara The lord of the universe, Sisu The child, Sighra The quick, Suchi The pure, Chanda The fiery, Diptavarna The bright-complexioned, Subhanana Of beautiful face, Amogha Incapable of being baffled, Anagha The sinless, Rudra The terrible, Priya The favourite, Chandranana Of face like the moon, Dipta-sasti The wielder of the blazing lance, Prasantatman Of tranquil soul, Bhadrakrit The doer of good, Kutamahana The chamber of even the wicked, Shashthipriya True favourite of Shashthi, Pavitra The holy, Matrivatsala The reverencer of his mother, Kanya-bhartri The protector of virgins, Vibhakta Diffused over the universe, Swaheya The son of Swaha, Revatisuta The child of Revati, Prabhu The Lord, Neta The leader, Visakha Reared up by Visakha, Naigameya Sprang from the Veda, Suduschara Difficult of propitiation, Suvrata Of excellent vows, Lalita The beautiful, Valakridanaka-priya Fond of toys, Khacharin The ranger of skies, Brahmacharin The chaste, Sura The brave, Saravanodbhava Born in a forest of heath, Viswamitra priya The favourite of Viswamitra, Devasena-priya The lover of Devasena, Vasudeva-priya The beloved of Vasudeva, and Priya-krit The doer of agreeable things, these are the divine names of Kartikeya.
Mbh.3.235.11900 Surrounded by the Kurus, O king, like Yama by the Rudra, or Vasava by the Maruts, thou shinest, O monarch, like the Moon among the stars!
Mbh.3.270.13181 In the form of Brahma, he is the Creator, and in the form of Vishnu he is the Preserver, and in his form as Rudra, he is the Destroyer of the Universe!
Mbh.3.276.13439 And armed with his bow and quiver and scimitar, and his fingers encased in gloves of Guana skin, Rama went in pursuit of that deer, after the manner of Rudra following the stellar deer in days of yore.
Mbh.4.2.54 What office will be performed by Arjuna who, dwelling for five years in the abode of the thousand-eyed Deity Indra shining in celestial lustre, acquired by his own energy the science of superhuman arms with all celestial weapons, and whom I regard as the tenth Rudra, the thirteenth Aditya, the ninth Vasu, and the tenth Graha, whose arms, symmetrical and long, have the skin hardened by constant strokes of the bowstring and cicatrices which resemble those on the humps of bulls, that foremost of warriors who is as Himavat among mountains, the ocean among expanses of water, Sakra among the celestial, Havya-vaha fire among the Vasus, the tiger among beasts, and Garuda among feathery tribes
Mbh.4.49.1892 Alone he fought with Rudra who stood before him as a forester.
Mbh.4.61.2399 I have obtained from Rudra the Raudra, from Varuna the Varuna from Agni the Agneya, from the god of Wind the Vayava, and from Sakra the thunderbolt and other weapons.
Mbh.4.63.2470 And those illustrious warriors ranged on the field of battle, using the celestials weapons obtained from Prajapati and Indra, and Agni and the fierce Rudra, and Kuvera, and Varuna, and Yama, and Vayu.
Mbh.5.15.646 I want thee to have, O king of the gods, a novel vehicle, such as never belonged to Vishnu, or Rudra, or the Asuras, or the Rakshasas, O lord.
Mbh.5.117.5285 And the royal sage then sported with her, as Surya with Prabhavati, Agni with Swaha, Vasava with Sachi, Chandra with Rohini, Yama with Urmila, Varuna with Gauri, Kuvera with Riddhi, Narayana with Lakshmi, Sagara with Jahnavi, Rudra with Rudrani, the Grandsire with Saraswati, Vasishtha's son Saktri with Adrisyanti, Vasishtha with Arundhati called also Akshamala, Chyavana with Sukanya, Pulastya with Sandhya, Agastya with the princess of Vidarbha Lopamudra, Satyavan with Savitri, Bhrigu with Puloma, Kasyapa with Aditi, Richika's son Jamadagni with Renuka, Kusika's son Viswamitra with Himavati, Vrihaspati with Tara, Sukra with Sataprava, Bhumipati with Bhumi, Pururavas with Urvasi, Richika with Satyavati, Manu with Saraswati, Dushyanta with Sakuntala, the eternal Dharma with Dhriti, Nala with Damayanti, Narada, with Satyavati, Jaratkaru with Jaratkaru, Pulastya with Pratichya, Urnayus with Menaka, Tumvuru with Rambha, Vasuki with Satasirsha, Dhananjaya with Kamari, Rama with the princess of Videha Sita, or Janardana with Rukmini.
Mbh.5.131.5824 And on his forehead appeared Brahman, and on his breast Rudra.
Mbh.5.159.7056 Having paid my respects, for battle's sake, to Rudra, Sakra, Vaisravana, Yama, Varuna, Pavaka, Kripa, Drona, and Madhava, and wielding that tough celestial bow of great energy called Gandiva, and accoutred with inexhaustible arrows and armed with celestial weapons, how can a person like me, O tiger among men, say, even unto Indra armed with the thunderbolt, such words as I am afraid,
Mbh.5.163.7357 If Yama himself, or Kuvera, or Rudra, assisteth thee, the Pandavas will still accomplish what they have vowed!
Mbh.5.170.7713 Dhananjaya himself is the warrior who fighteth from it; his, again, is that celestial bow called Gandiva; he owneth again those steeds fleet as the wind; his coat of mail is impenetrable and of celestial make; his two large quivers are inexhaustible; his arms have been obtained from the great Indra, Rudra, Kuvera, Yama and Varuna; and upon his car, again, are those maces of frightful mien, and diverse other great weapons having the thunderbolt amongst them!
Mbh.5.190.8533 Thus assured, the maiden, however, once more said unto Rudra, How can it happen, O god, that being a woman I shall yet be able to achieve victory in battle.
Mbh.6.6.339 There Brahman, and Rudra, and also Sakra the chief of the celestials, assembled together, performed diverse kinds of sacrifices with plentiful gifts.
Mbh.6.63.3411 And the terrible and slaughtering mace of Bhimasena, resembling the fierce bludgeon of Death and endued with the effulgence of Indra's bolt, looked like Pinaka of the angry Rudra while destroying living creatures.
Mbh.6.103.5522 Wielding his mace bathed in gore, and himself bespattered with fat and marrow and smeared with blood, he looked like Rudra himself.
Mbh.7.12.487 He hath obtained, again, many weapons from Indra and Rudra.
Mbh.7.19.843 Today I shall slay all these, like Rudra slaying creatures at the end of the Yuga'
Mbh.7.19.884 And the car of Vibhatsu in that battle shone fiercely like the car of Rudra himself, while engaged at the end of the Yuga in destroying all creatures.
Mbh.7.27.1434 There is none, in all the world, O sire, including even Indra and Rudra, who is unslayable by this weapon.
Mbh.7.51.2386 Rudra said, Be inclined to grace.
Mbh.7.56.2644 Gratified with his righteous deeds, Rudra granted Sivi a boon, saying, As thou givest away, let thy wealth, thy devotion, thy fame, thy religious acts, the love that all creatures bear thee, and the heaven thou attain, be all inexhaustible'
Mbh.7.71.3102 Then, O sire, the wretched king of the Sindhus, viz, Jayadratha, in consequence of the boon granted to him by Rudra, checked all of us!
Mbh.7.74.3237 Men will behold in tomorrow's battle those weapons which I have obtained from Yama and Kaurva and Varuna and Indra and Rudra!
Mbh.7.78.3478 And Krishna and Arjuna said, We bow to Bhava, to Sarva, to Rudra, to the boon-giving deity.
Mbh.7.79.3516 And as they approached the snakes, conversant as they were with the Vedas, they uttered the hundred stanzas of the Veda, to the praise of Rudra, bowing the while with their sincere souls unto Bhava of immeasurable power.
Mbh.7.79.3517 Then those two terrible snakes, in consequence of the power of those adorations to Rudra, abandoned their snake-forms and assumed the forms of a foe-killing bow and arrow.
Mbh.7.86.3786 SECTION LXXXVIII Sanjaya said, After the divisions of the Kuru army had been thus arrayed, and a loud uproar, O sire, had, arisen; after drums and Mridangas began to be beaten and played upon, after the din of the warriors and the noise of musical instruments had become audible; after conch began to be blown, and an awful roar had arisen, making the hair stand on end; after the field of battle had beer slowly covered by the Bharata heroes desirous of fight; and after the hour called Rudra had set in, Savyasachin made his appearance.
Mbh.7.96.4410 Indeed, O king, the car of Surya himself, or that of Rudra or that of Vaisravana, never goeth so fast.
Mbh.7.110.5265 Like the great Rudra destroying creatures, he slew elephant-riders and car-warriors with steeds and drivers.
Mbh.7.121.5975 Dreadful was the carnage of all creatures that then took place, resembling the sport of Rudra himself at the end of the Yuga.
Mbh.7.140.7033 Wert thou taught this use of weapons by the high-souled Indra or by Rudra, O Partha, or by Drona, or by Kripa?
Mbh.7.143.7303 Strewn with infuriated elephants whose trunks or tusks had been cut off, with steeds deprived of hoofs or necks, with cars reduced to pieces, with warriors having their entrails drawn out and others with legs or other limbs cut off, with bodies lying in hundreds and thousands that were either perfectly still or moving unconsciously, we beheld the vast field, on which Partha battled, resembled the coveted arena of Death, O king, enhancing the terrors of the timid, or like the sporting ground of Rudra when he destroyed creatures in days of old.
Mbh.7.143.7379 Like Rudra himself slaughtering creatures, Dhananjaya slaughtered elephants and elephant-riders, horses and horse-riders, and car-warriors and car-drivers.
Mbh.7.145.7600 Thy energy and might are equal to that of Rudra or the Destroyer himself.
Mbh.7.152.7988 And the kings, beholding Bhima said, That is Rudra who is fighting in Bhima's form among the Dhartarashtras'
Mbh.7.153.8086 Then Aswatthaman, equal unto Rudra or Upendra in prowess, became filled with rage.
Mbh.7.155.8311 Who is there that will resist that Partha who gratified Rudra himself in battle'
Mbh.7.171.9229 Then king Yudhishthira, beholding his army flying away, and regarding retreat to be advisable, addressed Phalguna and said, Behold that mighty bowman, Karna stationed there like Rudra himself armed with his bow.
Mbh.7.173.9403 The Suta's son, however, endued with the prowess of Rudra or of Indra's younger brother or of Indra, fearlessly shrouded Ghatotkacha's car in a moment with winged arrows.
Mbh.7.186.10243 If Rudra, dividing his own self into two portions, fights, himself with himself, then may an instance be had to match this.
Mbh.7.190.10479 The field of battle became full of many cruel sights upon that encounter of those royal combatants, resembling that scene of yore when Rudra, filled with rage, had destroyed all creatures.
Mbh.7.198.11286 When by those austerities, O sire, he became: like Brahma he then beheld the Master, Origin, and Guardian of the Universe, the Lord of all the gods, the Supreme Deity, who is exceedingly difficult of being gazed at, who is minuter than the minutest and larger than, the largest, who is called Rudra who is the lord of all the superior ones, who is called Hara and Sambhu, who has matted locks on his head, who is the infuser of life into every form, who is the First cause of all immobile: and mobile things, who is irresistible and of frightful aspect, who is of fierce wrath and great Soul, who is the All-destroyer, and of large heart; who beareth the celestial bow and a couple of quivers, who is cased in golden armour, and whose energy is infinite, who holdeth Pinaka, who is; armed with thunderbolt, a blazing trident, battle axe, mace, and a large sword; whose eye-brows are fair, whose locks are matted, who wieldeth the heavy short club, who hath the moon on his forehead, who is clad in tiger-skin, and who is armed with the bludgeon; who is decked with beautiful angadas, who hath snakes for his sacred thread, and who is surrounded by diverse creatures of the universe and by numerous ghosts and spirits, who is the One, who is the abode of ascetic austerities, and who is highly adored by persons of venerable age; who is Water, Heaven, Sky, Earth, Sun, Moon, Wind and Fire, and who is the measure of the duration of the universe.
Mbh.7.198.11292 Having saluted Rudra, that destroyer of the Asura Andhaka, the lotus eyed Narayana, with emotion filling his heart, began to praise the Three-eyed one in these words, O adorable one, O first of all the gods, the creator of everything viz, the Prajapatis who are the regents of the world, and who having entered the earth, thy first work, had, O lord, protected it before, have all sprung from thee.
Mbh.7.198.11319 Thyself also, O thou of great heart, hast been born as a portion of Rudra, by virtue of all thy religious acts and as a consequence of high ascetic austerities, endued with great energy and wrath.
Mbh.7.198.11326 Kesava is that devoted worshipper of Rudra who has sprung from Rudra himself.
Mbh.7.198.11334 Sanjaya continued, Hearing these words of Vyasa, Drona's son, that mighty car-warrior, bowed unto Rudra and regarded Kesava as worthy of the highest regards.
Mbh.7.199.11351 Of three eyes and mighty arms, he is called Rudra, with his locks tied in the shape of a crown, and his body attired in skins.
Mbh.7.199.11374 Those men in this world and those other men of pious conduct, that devoutly worship the boon-giving, divine, and auspicious Rudra, obtain happiness here and attain to the highest state hereafter.
Mbh.7.199.11375 O son of Kunti, bow down unto him that is peace, unto him, called Rudra of blue throat, exceedingly subtle, and of great effulgence, unto him called Kapardin, him that is terrible, him that of tawny eyes, him that is boon-giving; unto that great ordainer, of red locks and righteous conduct; unto him that always does auspicious acts; unto him that is an object of desire; him that is of tawny eyes; him that is called Sthanu; him that is called Purusha; unto him that is of tawny hair; him that is bold, him that is exceedingly subtle and of great effulgence; unto him that is the giver of light; him that is the embodiment of all sacred waters; him that is the God of gods; and him that is endued with great impetuosity; unto him that is of manifest form; him that is called Sarva; him that is of agreeable attire; unto him that has an excellent head-gear, him that is of handsome face; him that has the mountains for his habitation; him that is peace; him that is the protector; him that has barks of trees for his attire; him whose arms are decked with ornaments of gold, him who is fierce, him that is the lord of all the points of the compass; him that is the lord of the clouds and of all created beings; him that is the lord of all trees and of all kine; him that has his body shrouded with trees; him who is the celestial generalissimo; him who inspires all thought; him who has the sacrificial ladle in his hand; him who is blazing; him who wields the bow; him who is Rama's self, him who has diverse forms; him who is the lord of the universe; him who had the munja grass for his attire; him who has a thousand heads, a thousand eyes, a thousand arms, and a thousand legs.
Mbh.7.199.11407 Beholding that arrowy shower, all the gods bowing down unto Maheswara, assigned to Rudra a substantial share in sacrifices.
Mbh.7.199.11417 Afflicted by the Asuras, all the gods sought the protection of Rudra.
Mbh.7.199.11420 Therefore, O Mahadeva, slay these enemies of the gods: O Rudra, creatures slain in every sacrifice shall then be thine.
Mbh.7.199.11460 The celestials then gratified with praise both Uma and Rudra.
Mbh.7.199.11463 He is Rudra he is Siva, he is Agni, he is everything, and he hath knowledge of everything.
Mbh.7.199.11496 In the Vedas the excellent hymn called Sata Rudriya, hath been sung in honour of that great God called the infinite Rudra.
Mbh.7.199.11533 And since he burneth, since he is fierce, since he is endued with great prowess, and since he devoureth flesh and blood and marrow, he is for this called Rudra.
Mbh.7.199.11540 The men that always listen to this succeeds in vanquishing all his foes and is highly respected in the region of Rudra.
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.8.30.1328 Then rakshasas and pishacas, and carnivorous beasts, in large numbers came to that awful field of battle resembling the sporting ground of Rudra himself'
Mbh.8.34.1687 The illustrious Rudra is Death's self.
Mbh.8.34.1761 In consequence, however, of the pressure caused by the weight of Soma, Agni, and Vishnu that were in that shaft, as also of the pressure caused by the weight of Brahman and Rudra and the latter's bow, that car seemed to sink.
Mbh.8.34.1764 At that time the illustrious Rudra was employed in eyeing the Danava city.
Mbh.8.34.1765 While in that posture, O best of men, Rudra cut off the teats of the horses and clove the hoofs of the bull.
Mbh.8.34.1767 And from that time, O king, horses, afflicted by the mighty Rudra of wonderful deeds, came to be without teats.
Mbh.8.34.1769 And O king, as Rudra thus stood, holding his bow, the three cities during that time became united.
Mbh.8.34.1781 As the illustrious Brahman, the Creator of the worlds, the Grandsire, the Supreme Deity of unfading glory, acted as the driver of Rudra, so do thou restrain the steeds of the high-souled son of Radha like Grandsire restraining those of Rudra.
Mbh.8.34.1783 In battle, Karna is like Rudra, and thou art like Brahman in policy.
Mbh.8.35.1844 SECTION Duryodhana said, Even thus did that illustrious Deity, that Grandsire of all the worlds, viz, Brahman, act as driver on that occasion and even thus did Rudra become the warrior.
Mbh.8.35.1853 Knowing this fact, he became the driver, O Bharata, of Partha like the Self-create becoming the driver of Rudra.
Mbh.8.47.2620 Partha, however, slaying all his foes in front, slew those that stood further off, and then those that were on his right and his back, like Rudra himself in rage slaughtering all created things endued with life.
Mbh.8.52.2954 In consequence of those brave combatants striking one another and shouting at the top of their voices, the field of battle became awful, resembling the slaughter-ground of creatures of Rudra himself.
Mbh.8.61.3628 The feats of the single-handed Bhima of great intelligence, on that occasion, shone like those of Rudra, himself, while engaged in destroying all creatures
Mbh.8.73.4380 Having assumed the form of Rudra or of Upendra in battle, he afflicted the Pandava divisions and caused a great carnage amongst them.
Mbh.8.89.5584 Deeply struck with those winged arrows of fierce energy shot with great force from Partha's bow, Karna, with mangled limbs and body bathed in blood, looked resplendent like Rudra at the universal destruction, sporting in the midst of crematorium at noon or eve, his body dyed with blood.
Mbh.8.90.5651 That diadem was incapable of being crushed by Rudra and the Lord of waters and Kuvera with Pinaka and noose and thunderbolt and the very foremost of shafts.
Mbh.9.4.224 SECTION Sanjaya said, Beholding the fallen boxes of cars, as also the cars of high-souled warriors, and the elephants and foot-soldiers, O sire, slain in battle, seeing the field of battle assume an aspect as awful as that of the sporting ground of Rudra, observing the inglorious end obtained by hundreds and thousands of kings, witnessing also the prowess of Partha after the retreat of thy son with grief-stricken heart and when thy troops, filled with anxiety and fallen into great distress, O Bharata, were deliberating as to what they should next do, hearing also the loud wails of the Kaurava warriors that were being crushed, and marking the displayed and disordered tokens of great kings, the Kuru leader Kripa of great energy, possessed of years and good conduct and filled with compassion, and endued with eloquence, approached king Duryodhana, and angrily said these words unto him, O Duryodhana, listen, O Bharata, to these words that I will say unto thee.
Mbh.9.14.829 Indeed, along the track of the angry Partha's car, O monarch, the ground, miry with blood, became impassable, O chief of the Bharatas, like the sporting ground of Rudra.
Mbh.9.16.969 Filled with rage, he destroyed steeds with riders and steeds without riders and foot-soldiers by thousands in that battle, like Rudra destroying living creatures at the time of the universal dissolution.
Mbh.9.17.1060 the king hurled it, even as Rudra had, in days of yore, shot his shaft for the destruction of the asura Andhaka, stretching forth his strong right arm graced with a beautiful hand, and apparently dancing in wrath.
Mbh.9.21.1318 Sanjaya said, That foremost of car-warriors, O monarch, thy son, riding on his car and filled with the courage of despair, looked resplendent in that battle like Rudra himself of great valour.
Mbh.9.30.2201 Beholding him armed with mace and resembling a crested mountain or the trident-wielding Rudra himself casting angry glances on living creatures, they observed that Bharata chief shedding an effulgence around like the scorching sun himself in the sky.
Mbh.9.36.2724 Filled with wonder, he said, I do not think that thou art any one else than Rudra, that great and Supreme being!
Mbh.9.42.3072 The form called Skanda of wonderful appearance proceeded to the spot where Rudra was sitting.
Mbh.9.42.3080 Then Rudra and the goddess Uma and Agni, and Ganga, all bowed unto the Grandsire, that Lord of the Universe.
Mbh.9.43.3095 The diverse gods, Indra and Vishnu, both of great energy, and Surya and Candramas, and Dhatri, and Vidhatri, and Vayu, and Agni, and Pushan, and Bhaga, and Aryaman, and Ansa, and Vivaswat, and Rudra of great intelligence, and Mitra, and the eleven Rudras, the eight Vasus, the twelve Adityas, the twin Ashvinis, the Viswedevas, the Maruts, the Saddhyas, the Pitris, the Gandharvas, the Apsaras, the Yakshas, the Rakshasas, the Pannagas, innumerable celestial Rishis, the Vaikhanasas, the Valakhilyas, those others among Rishis that subsist only on air and those that subsist on the rays of the Sun, the descendants of Bhrigu and Angiras, many high-souled Yatis, all the Vidyadharas, all those that were crowned with ascetic success, the Grandsire, Pulastya, Pulaha of great ascetic merits, Angiras, Kasyapa, Atri, Marichi, Bhrigu, Kratu, Hara, Prachetas, Manu, Daksha, the Seasons, the Planets, and all the luminaries; O monarch, all the rivers in their embodied forms, the eternal Vedas, the Seas, the diverse tirthas, the Earth, the Sky, the Cardinal and Subsidiary points of the compass, and all the Trees, O king, Aditi the mother of the gods, Hri, Sri, Swaha, Sarasvati, Uma, Sachi, Sinivali, Anumati, Kuhu, the Day of the new moon, the Day of the full Moon, the wives of the denizens of heaven, Himavat, Vindhya, Meru of many summits, Airavat with all his followers, the Divisions of time called Kala, Kashtha, Fortnight, the Seasons, Night, and Day, O king, the prince of steeds, Ucchaisravas, Vasuki the king of the Snakes, Aruna, Garuda, the Trees, the deciduous herbs, and the adorable god Dharma, all came there together.
Mbh.9.44.3245 Possessed of great strength, some amongst them partook of the nature of Yama, some of Rudra, some of Soma, some of Kuvera, some of Varuna, some of Indra, and some of Agni, O scorcher of foes.
Mbh.9.44.3264 It was protected by thirty warriors each of whom was possessed of might equal to that of Rudra himself.
Mbh.9.45.3388 There were the lordship of all treasures, the friendship of Rudra possessed of immeasurable energy, the status of a god, the regency over a particular point of the compass the north, and a son named Nakakuvera.
Mbh.10.3.196 While engaged in the act of slaughter, I shall career in their midst like the wielder of Pinaka, Rudra himself, in rage among living creatures.
Mbh.10.6.361 I will take the shelter of that god, that source of everything beneficial, the lord of Uma, otherwise called Kapardin, decked with a garland of human skulls, that plucker of Bhaga's eyes called also Rudra and Hara.
Mbh.10.7.365 And he said, I seek the protection of Him called Ugra, Sthanu, Shiva, Rudra, Sharva, Ishana, Ishvara, Girisha; and of that boon-giving god who is the Creator and Lord of the universe; of Him whose throat is blue, who is without birth, who is called Shakra, who destroyed the sacrifice of Daksha, and who is called Hara; of Him whose form is the universe, who hath three eyes, who is possessed of multifarious forms, and who is the lord of Uma; of Him who resides in crematoriums, who swells with energy, who is the lord of diverse tribes of ghostly beings, and who is the possessor of undecaying prosperity and power; of Him who wields the skull-topped club, who is called Rudra, who bears matted locks on his head, and who is a brahmacari.
Mbh.10.7.433 Having with fierce rites adored Rudra of fierce deeds, Ashvatthama with joined hands, said these words unto that high-souled god.
Mbh.10.8.613 Thousands of men moving in agony, overwhelmed with anxiety and overcome with despair, were slain by Ashvatthama like Rudra slaying living creatures.
Mbh.10.17.1044 The puissant Grandsire, desirous of creating living creatures, saw Rudra; and the Grandsire asked him, saying, Create living creatures without delay
Mbh.10.17.1045 Thus asked, Rudra of tawny locks, saying, So be it
Mbh.10.17.1047 Having waited in expectation of Rudra for a very long time, the Grandsire, by a fiat of his will, invoked into existence another being for making him the creator of all kinds of living things.
Mbh.10.17.1060 At this sight, Rudra became angry and caused his procreative limb to disappear in the bowels of the Earth.
Mbh.10.18.1071 Not knowing Rudra truly, the celestials, O king, assigned no share for the divine Sthanu.
Mbh.10.18.1080 Beholding the unfading Rudra arrive there attired as a brahmacari and armed with that bow, the goddess Earth shrunk with fear and the very mountains began to tremble.
Mbh.10.18.1089 Rudra then pierced the embodiment of Sacrifice with a fierce shaft in the heart.
Mbh.10.18.1092 Rudra, however, O Yudhishthira, pursued him through the skies.
Mbh.10.18.1098 The blue-throated Rudra, having agitated them thus, laughed aloud, and whirling the horn of his bow, paralysed them.
Mbh.11.16.674 Beholding that carnage which resembled the sights seen on the sporting ground of Rudra, the ladies uttered loud shrieks and quickly alighted from their costly vehicles.
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.12.15.616 Rudra, Skanda, Sakra, Agni, Varuna, are all slaughterers.
Mbh.12.47.2485 Salutations to thee in thy form of Rudra!
Mbh.12.72.4099 In consequence of the sins perpetrated by sinful men, the god Rudra appears in the kingdom.
Mbh.12.72.4102 Aila said, Whence does Rudra spring?
Mbh.12.72.4106 Whence does the god Rudra spring'
Mbh.12.72.4107 Kasyapa said, Rudra exists in the hearts of men.
Mbh.12.72.4109 Rudra has been said to be like atmospheric visitations and his form is like that of the wind-gods'
Mbh.12.120.6792 born, the individual without affections, the Soul of Rudra, the eldest Manu and the great Benefactor Chastisement is the holy Vishnu.
Mbh.12.121.6857 From that time, O monarch, the spot, which is a favourite haunt of Rudra, came to be called Munjaprishtha by Rishis of rigid vows.
Mbh.12.121.6933 He is called by these names also, viz, Kapardin, Sankara, Rudra, Bhava, Sthanu and the lord of Uma.
Mbh.12.152.9175 If, however, Rudra, or Kumara, or Brahman, or Vishnu, grant him a boon, then only may this child come back to life.
Mbh.12.165.9822 They are the sages Marichi, Atri, Pulastya, Pulaha, Kratu, Vasishtha, Angiras, and the mighty and puissant lord Rudra, and Prachetas.
Mbh.12.165.9863 Then Brahman made over that sharp weapon to the blue-throated Rudra who has for the device on his banner the foremost of bulls, for enabling him to put down irreligion and sin.
Mbh.12.165.9864 At this, the divine Rudra of immeasurable soul, praised by the great Rishis, took up that sword and assumed a different shape.
Mbh.12.165.9872 Indeed, O Bharata, the form then assumed by Rudra was exceedingly terrible.
Mbh.12.165.9873 Hearing that Rudra had assumed that form for achieving fierce deeds, the Danavas, filled with joy, began to come towards him with great speed, showering huge rocks upon him as they come, and blazing brands of wood, and diverse kinds of terrible weapons made of iron and each endued with the sharpness of a razor.
Mbh.12.165.9874 The Danava host, however, beholding that foremost of all beings, the indestructible Rudra, swelling with might, became stupefied and began to tremble.
Mbh.12.165.9875 Although Rudra was alone and single-handed, yet so quickly did he move on the field of battle with the sword in his arm that the Asuras thought there were a thousand similar Rudras battling with them.
Mbh.12.165.9883 Having slain the Danavas and re-established Righteousness on earth, the auspicious Rudra cast off his awful form and assumed his own beneficent shape.
Mbh.12.165.9885 The divine Rudra, after this, gave the sword, that protector of religion, dyed with the blood of Danavas, unto Vishnu with due adorations.
Mbh.12.165.9919 Rudra is its high preceptor.
Mbh.12.283.17466 Beholding them, the Rishi Dadhichi became filled with grief and wrath, and said, This is neither a Sacrifice nor a meritorious rite of religion, since Rudra is not adored in it.
Mbh.12.283.17482 I know them all, but I do not know who this new Rudra Maheswara is'
Mbh.12.283.17516 Those fierce bands of spirits, endued with terrible energy and prowess and resembling Rudra himself on that account, rushed with the force of thunder to that place where Daksha was making preparations for his sacrifice, impelled by the desire of destroying it.
Mbh.12.283.17548 Virabhadra said, I am neither Rudra nor his spouse, the goddess Uma.
Mbh.12.283.17554 I am known by the name of Virabhadra and I have sprung from the wrath of Rudra.
Mbh.12.284.17595 I bow unto thee that art called Bhava and Sarva and Rudra.
Mbh.12.284.17813 Since thou, O Rudra, art the Creator of all creatures, since, O Hara, thou art the Master of all creatures, and since thou art the indwelling Soul of all creatures, therefore wert thou not invited by me to my Sacrifices.
Mbh.12.289.18166 The bow-armed Rudra, understanding that Usanas, whose penances had become successful and who had converted himself into the form of pure Knowledge, was staying at the point of his lance and finding that he was unable to hurl the lance at one who was upon it, bent that weapon with hand.
Mbh.12.289.18182 Rudra, however, having stopped all his outlets, prevented him from coming out.
Mbh.12.312.19591 Having burnt everything on the face of the Earth, Rudra, of immeasurable might, then quickly fills the bare Earth with Water possessed of great force.
Mbh.12.317.19754 If through arms, the man goes to the region of Indra, and if through the chest, to that of Rudra.
Mbh.12.318.19885 Subsequently I heard the discourses of Rudra and the intelligent Viswarupa, of several of the deities, of the Pitris.
Mbh.12.323.20597 There Mahadeva, called also by the name of Rudra, sat, decked with an excellent garland of Karnikara flowers, and blazed with effulgence like the Moon with his rays.
Mbh.12.333.21323 Thus favoured by the illustrious Rudra himself, O Bharata, the Rishi beheld a shadow of his son by his side.
Mbh.12.335.21495 Agreeably to the authority of the scriptures I have created Brahman from the attribute of Grace, Rudra from my Wrath, and yourselves, Ye Brahmanas, as representing the Pravriti-elements of Mahat, Ahankara, etc,
Mbh.12.339.21885 The deity Rudra, born of my wrath, is sprung from my forehead.
Mbh.12.340.22023 Then, again, Brahman, and Rudra, the puissant Sakra the slayer of Vala, Surya, Chandramas the Lord of the stars, the Wind-god, the Deity of fire, the Deity of the Waters, Infinite Space as living Being, the Universe too as a conscious agent, and the rest of the denizens of heaven, they, it seems, are ignorant of the way of securing annihilation of conscious existence, that is capable of being brought about by self-realisation
Mbh.12.340.22064 Then sprang Rudra from the principle of wrath, starting into life, he created ten others that were like him.
Mbh.12.340.22142 His son Rudra, who has sprung from his brow at his command, will, endued with puissance, uphold all created beings.
Mbh.12.340.22191 Bow unto Him who is called Kaparddin Rudra, who is the Great Boar, who is Unicorn, and who is possessed of great intelligence: who is the Sun, who assumed the well-known form with the equine head; and who is always displayed in a four-fold form.
Mbh.12.341.22230 From His grace lath arisen Brahman and from His wrath hath arisen Rudra.
Mbh.12.341.22245 Towards the evening of Brahma's day, Aniruddha became filled with wrath, and as a consequence of this, there sprang from his forehead a son called Rudra vested with the power of destroying everything when the hour for destruction comes.
Mbh.12.341.22246 These two, viz, Brahma and Rudra, are the foremost of all the deities, having sprung respectively from the Propitiousness and the Wrath of Aniruddha.
Mbh.12.341.22249 It is Aniruddha that does everything, making Brahma and Rudra the visible agents in respect of the universe.
Mbh.12.341.22250 Rudra is otherwise called Kaparddin.
Mbh.12.341.22256 O son of Pandu, Rudra should be known to have always Narayana for his Soul.
Mbh.12.341.22259 Rudra, again, is my Soul.
Mbh.12.341.22264 He who knows Rudra knows myself, and he who knows myself knows Rudra.
Mbh.12.341.22265 He who follows Rudra follows me, Rudra is Narayana.
Mbh.12.341.22267 Rudra and Narayana, forming one person, pervade all displayed things and cause them to act.
Mbh.12.341.22268 No one else than Rudra is competent to grant me a boon.
Mbh.12.341.22270 Having settled this in my mind, I adored in days of yore the ancient and puissant Rudra, for obtaining the boon of a son.
Mbh.12.341.22271 In adoring Rudra thus I adored my own self.
Mbh.12.341.22273 It is for this reason that I adore Rudra, Rudra being, as I have already told thee, my own self.
Mbh.12.342.22403 Incensed at the destruction of his sacrifice by Rudra, Daksha once more set himself to the practice of severe austerities and attaining to high puissance caused something like a third eye to appear on the forehead of Rudra for the destruction of Tripurasura
Mbh.12.342.22404 When Rudra addressed himself for the destruction of the triple city belonging to the Asuras, the preceptor of the Asuras, viz, Usanas, provoked beyond endurance, tore a matted lock from his own head and hurled it at Rudra.
Mbh.12.342.22406 Those serpents began to bite Rudra, at which his throat became blue.
Mbh.12.342.22407 During a bygone period, viz, that connected with the Self-born Manu it is said that Narayana had seized Rudra by the throat and hence did Rudra's throat become blue.
Mbh.12.342.22579 The daughter, named Uma, of the Himavat mountains, was desired by Rudra in marriage After Himavat had promised the hand of Uma to Mahadeva, the great Rishi Bhrigu, approaching Himavat, addressed him, saying, Give this daughter of thine unto me in marriage.
Mbh.12.342.22580 Himavat replied unto him, saying, Rudra is the bridegroom already selected by me for my daughter,
Mbh.12.342.22670 Daksha, however, in that sacrifice of his, refused to give a share unto Rudra, O Bharata, of the sacrificial offerings.
Mbh.12.342.22671 Urged by the sage Dadhichi, Rudra destroyed that sacrifice.
Mbh.12.342.22678 At this, Rudra became highly angry and as the result thereof he rushed towards the Rishis Nara and Narayana, endued with the puissance of severe austerities.
Mbh.12.342.22679 Narayana then seized the rushing Rudra with his hand by the throat.
Mbh.12.342.22681 From that time Rudra came to be called by the name of Sitikantha.
Mbh.12.342.22682 Meanwhile Nara, for the purpose of destroying Rudra, took up a blade of grass, and inspired it with Mantras.
Mbh.12.342.22684 Nara suddenly hurled that battle-axe at Rudra but it broke into pieces.
Mbh.12.342.22687 The blessed and holy one said, When Rudra and Narayana became thus engaged in battle, all the universe became suddenly filled with anxiety.
Mbh.12.342.22698 The four-faced Brahma, capable of being understood with the aid of only the Niruktas, joined his hands and addressing Rudra, said, Let good happen to the three worlds.
Mbh.12.342.22706 Thus addressed by Brahma, Rudra forthwith cast off the fire of his wrath, and set himself to gratify the illustrious and puissant God Narayana
Mbh.12.342.22708 That boon-giving God Narayana, who hath his wrath and the senses under control, soon became gratified and reconciled with Rudra.
Mbh.12.342.22715 Having mutually caused such marks on each other's person, the two Rishis Nara and Narayana thus made friends with Rudra.
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.12.342.22721 That Being whom, at the time of all thy battles, thou beheldest stalking in thy van, know, O son of Kunti, is no other than Rudra, that god of gods, otherwise called by the name of Kaparddin.
Mbh.12.347.23141 Having adored with the austerest penances the illustrious deity with the equine head, the Rishi Panchala otherwise known as Galava acquired the science of Krama by proceeding along the path pointed out by the deity Rudra
Mbh.12.348.23214 Having received it thus, Brahma imparted this religion, which has Narayana for its soul, unto Rudra.
Mbh.12.348.23215 In the Krita age of that ancient Kalpa, Rudra, devoted to Yoga, O monarch, communicated it to all those Rishis that are known by the name of Valikhilyas.
Mbh.12.350.23470 Rudra said, O illustrious one, through thy grace, all is well with my penances and Vedic studies.
Mbh.12.350.23481 Rudra said, Self-born thou art.
Mbh.13.14.867 It is in consequence of the devotion of the high-souled Krishna to the illustrious Rudra whom he gratified.
Mbh.13.14.990 Filled with wrath at this, they gratified the illustrious Rudra.
Mbh.13.14.1000 And thou shalt get that son without the need of a husband, simply through the grace of Rudra.
Mbh.13.14.1010 The illustrious Rudra said, I am gratified with thee, O sinless one!
Mbh.13.14.1181 What person in the universe can obtain tranquillity, without gratifying Rudra that is freed from decripitude and death, that is endued with the effulgence of the Sun, the Moon, or the fire, that is the root or original cause of everything real and unreal in the three worlds, and that exists as one and indivisible entity?
Mbh.13.14.1197 That high puissance consisting of all the three attributes of creation, protection, and destruction, which dwells in that illustrious Being who is endowed with the quality of being one, who created Brahma, Vishnu, and Rudra, was derived from Mahadeva.
Mbh.13.14.1248 That god of gods, viz, Rudra, that cause of both creation and destruction, displays in his form the indications of both the sexes as the one cause of the creation of the universe.
Mbh.13.14.1430 Thou art that puissant Lord who didst create Rudra when the end of the Yuga came and when the Creation was once more to be dissolved.
Mbh.13.14.1431 That Rudra, who sprang from thee destroyed the Creation with all its mobile and immobile beings, assuming the form of Kala of great energy, of the cloud Samvartaka charged with water which myriads of oceans are not capacious enough to bear, and of the all consuming fire.
Mbh.13.14.1432 Verily, when the period comes for the dissolution of the universe, that Rudra stands, ready to swallow up the universe.
Mbh.13.14.1528 Thou art Brahman, thou art Rudra, thou art Varuna, thou art Agni, thou art Manu, thou art Bhava, thou art Dhatri, thou art Tashtri, thou art Vidhatri, thou art the puissant Master of all things, and thou art everywhere.
Mbh.13.16.1599 Celestial Rishis conversant with the Puranas, say that thou hast three bodies viz, those pertaining to Kalas, those pertaining to Purusha and those pertaining to Brahma or the three forms namely Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra.
Mbh.13.17.1773 This hymn relates to him who is the Veda of the Vedas, and the most ancient of all ancient objects, to him who is the energy of all energies, and the penance of all penances; to him who is the most tranquil of all creatures endued with tranquillity, and who is the splendour of all splendours; to him who is looked upon as the most restrained of all creatures that are restrained, and him who is the intelligence of all creatures endued with intelligence; to him who is looked upon as the deity of all deities, and the Rishi of all Rishis; to him who is regarded as the sacrifice of all sacrifices and the most auspicious of all things fraught with auspiciousness; to him who is the Rudra of all Rudras and the effulgence of all things endued with effulgence; to him who is the Yogin of all Yogins, and the cause of all causes; to him from whom all the worlds start into existence, and unto whom all the worlds return when they cease to exist; to him who is the Soul of all existent creatures, and who is called Hara of immeasurable energy.
Mbh.13.17.1880 Thou art Rudra in consequence of thy fierceness.
Mbh.13.17.2668 Thou art the grantor of boons unto the deities and Asuras in the form of Brahman and Rudra.
Mbh.13.17.2744 Such stainless and pure devotion to Rudra, that has singleness of purpose and that is simply irresistible in its course, is seldom to be found among even the deities, and never among men.
Mbh.13.17.2745 It is through the grace of Rudra that such devotion arises in the hearts of human beings.
Mbh.13.18.2874 If Rudra be gratified with a person, he can confer upon him the states of ether Brahma or of Kesava or of Sakra with all the deities under him, or the sovereignty of the three worlds.
Mbh.13.18.2888 Persons of great fame, by reciting this prince of hymns that is competent to cleanse every sin and that is highly sacred and purifying, set their hearts on Rudra.
Mbh.13.19.2924 Thou wilt then behold the plateau on which Rudra resides.
Mbh.13.19.2952 He then worshipped with due rites both Rudra and his spouse Uma, and rested for some more time by the side of that lake in the course of the Vahuda whose shores he had reached.
Mbh.13.77.7053 Daksha gratified the heart of Rudra, O Bharata, with that present, Mahadeva, thus gratified, made that bull his vehicle.
Mbh.13.77.7055 For this reason it is that Rudra came to be known as the bull-bannered deity.
Mbh.13.77.7057 Indeed, the great Rudra became the Master of kine and is named as the bull-signed deity.
Mbh.13.77.7061 They have Rudra for their master.
Mbh.13.84.7555 After the wedding was over of the illustrious and high-souled Rudra armed with the trident, O son of Bhrigu's race, with the goddess who became his spouse, on the breast of that foremost of mountains, viz, Himavat, the illustrious and high-souled deity wished to unite himself with the goddess.
Mbh.13.84.7556 Thereupon all the deities, penetrated with anxiety, approached Rudra.
Mbh.13.84.7557 Bending their heads with reverence and gratifying Mahadeva and his boon giving spouse Uma, both of whom were seated together, they addressed Rudra, O perpetuator of Bhrigu's race, saying, This union, O illustrious and sinless one, of thine with the goddess, is a union of one endued with penances with another of penances as severe!
Mbh.13.84.7576 The spouse of Rudra, however, at this endeavour of the deities to stop procreation, became highly incensed.
Mbh.13.84.7581 Rudra, solicited by them, held in himself his energy of incomparable puissance.
Mbh.13.84.7584 The energy of Rudra, coming in contact with another energy of great puissance, became identified with it in respect of essence.
Mbh.13.85.7604 The deities have also been cursed by the spouse of Rudra in consequence of their endeavour in former days to stop propagation.
Mbh.13.85.7626 Endued with great puissance, He is older than Rudra himself.
Mbh.13.85.7717 Capable somehow of bearing that seed, yet oppressed by the energy of Rudra for Agni is identical with Rudra, she failed to hold that seed longer in consequence of its burning energy.
Mbh.13.85.7752 To a sacrifice performed in days of yore by that foremost of gods, viz, Lord Rudra, O thou of great might, who on that occasion had assumed the form of Varuna, there came the Munis and all the deities with Agni at their head.
Mbh.13.85.7765 Even He is Brahman and Siva and Rudra and Varuna and Agni and Prajapati.
Mbh.13.85.7883 He is Rudra.
Mbh.13.86.7943 Having sprung from the seed which had fallen off from Rudra he was named Skanda, and because of his birth in the solitude of a forest of reeds he came to be called by the name of Guha the secret-born.
Mbh.13.86.7944 The gods numbering three and thirty, the points of the compass in their embodied forms together with the deities presiding over them, and Rudra and Dhatri and Vishnu and Yama and Pushan and Aryaman and Bhaga, and Angas and Mitra and the Sadhyas and Vasava and the Vasus and the Aswins and the Waters and the Wind and the Firmament and Chandramas and all the Constellations and the Planets and Surya, and all the Ricks and Samans and Yajuses in their embodied forms, came there to behold that wonderful child who was the son of the deity of blazing flames.
Mbh.13.107.9768 He always makes his journeys on that car, accompanied by the daughters of Rudra adorned with celestial garlands and endued with the effulgence of the midday sun or the fires of blazing flames.
Mbh.13.107.9769 Attaining to the regions of Rudra, he lives there in great happiness for countless years.
Mbh.13.107.9780 For those countless years he experiences the joy of bending his head in reverence unto Rudra adored by deities and Danavas.
Mbh.13.107.9804 That man who having fasted for sixteen days eats a little ghee on the seventeenth day and bears himself in this way for a whole year, pouring libations every day on his sacred fire, proceeds to the regions of Varuna and Indra, and Rudra and the Maruts and Usanas and Brahman himself.
Mbh.13.107.9825 That man who having fasted for two and twenty days takes a single meal on the twenty-third day and bears himself in this way for a full year, thus regulating his diet and keeping his senses under control, attains to the regions of the deity of Wind, of Usanas, and of Rudra.
Mbh.13.125.10915 O chief of the deities, do thou hear it with Rudra in thy company, O lord of Sachi!
Mbh.13.139.11416 Listen to me as I narrate also the doubt that filled the mind of the spouse of Rudra and that of Rudra himself.

Mbh.13.150.12610 They have sprung from Rudra and Anala and the Vasus.
Mbh.13.150.12629 There are others who are equal to Rudra himself.
Mbh.13.160.13370 Meanwhile, Rudra of terrible prowess rushed against the deities.
Mbh.13.160.13375 Without being appeased, Rudra once more placed on his bow-string a sharp and blazing arrow.
Mbh.13.160.13382 When Rudra became gratified, the embodiment of sacrifice, which had been pierced in twain, became once more united.
Mbh.13.160.13387 Afflicted by the Asuras, all the deities then sought the protection of the great Rudra.
Mbh.13.160.13388 Assembled together the high-souled deities addressed him, saying, O Rudra, the Asuras threaten to exert their destructive influence in all acts!
Mbh.13.160.13396 Indeed, O Bharata, the Asuras with their cities, were all burnt by Rudra with that shaft of his whose complexion was like that of the sun and whose energy resembled that of the fire which appears at the end of the Yuga for consuming all things.
Mbh.13.160.13404 The deities also began to hymn the praises of both Uma and Rudra.
Mbh.13.160.13409 He is Rudra; he is Shiva; he is Agni; he is Sarva; he is the vanquisher of all; he is Indra, and Vayu, and the Aswins and the god of lightning.
Mbh.13.161.13419 SECTION CLXI Vasudeva said, O mighty-armed Yudhishthira, listen to me as I recite to thee the many names of Rudra as also the high blessedness of that high-souled one.
Mbh.13.161.13430 And since he burns and oppresses, is keen and fierce, and endued with great energy, and is engaged in eating flesh and blood and marrow, he is said to be Rudra.
Mbh.14.8.220 Hie thee thither, and appease that adorable god who is known by the names of Sarva, Bedha, Rudra, Sitikantha, Surapa, Suvarcha, Kapardi, Karala, Haryyaksha, Varada, Tryaksha, Pushnodantabhid, Vamana, Siva, Yamya, Avyaktarupa, Sadvritta, Sankara, Kshemya, Harikesa, Sthanu, Purusha, Harinetra, Munda, Krishna, Uttarana, Bhaskara, Sutirtha, Devadeva, Ranha, Ushnishi, Suvaktra, Sahasraksha, Midhvan, Girisa, Prasanta, Yata, Chiravasa, Vilwadanda, Siddha, Sarvadandadhara, Mriga, Vyadha, Mahan, Dhanesa, Bhava, Vara, Somavaktra, Siddhamantra, Chakshu, Hiranyavahu, Ugra, Dikpati, Lelihana, Goshtha, Shiddhamantra, Vrishnu, Pasupati, Bhutapati, Vrisha, Matribhakta, Senani, Madhyama, Sruvahasta, Yati, Dhanwi, Bhargava, Aja, Krishnanetra, Virupaksha, Tikshnadanshtra, Tikshna, Vaiswanaramukha, Mahadyuti, Ananga, Sarva, Dikpati, Bilohita, Dipta, Diptaksha, Mahauja, Vasuretas, Suvapu, Prithu, Kritivasa, Kapalmali, Suvarnamukuta, Mahadeva, Krishna, Tryamvaka, Anagha, Krodhana, Nrisansa, Mridu, Vahusali, Dandi, Taptatapa, Akrurakarma, Sahasrasira, Sahasra-charana, Swadha-swarupa, Vahurupa, Danshtri, Pinaki, Mahadeva, Mahayogi, Avyaya, Trisulahasta, Varada, Tryamvaka, Bhuvaneswara, Tripuraghna, Trinayana, Trilokesa, Mahanja, Sarvabhuta-prabhava, Sarvabhuta-dharana, Dharanidhara, Isana, Sankara, Sarva, Siva, Visveswara, Bhava, Umapati, Pasupati, Viswarupa, Maheswara, Virupaksha, Dasabhuja, Vrishavadhwaja, Ugra, Sthanu, Siva, Rudra, Sarva, Girisa, Iswara, Sitakantha, Aja, Sukra, Prithu, Prithuhara, Vara, Viswarupa, Virupaksha, Vahurupa, Umapati, Anangangahara, Hara, Saranya, Mahadeva, Chaturmukha.
Mbh.14.42.1667 As connected with objects, it is consciousness of self; and the presiding deity there is Rudra.
Mbh.14.65.2949 Having performed the worship of Rudra and of all the Ganas, the king, placing Vyasa ahead, proceeded towards the place where the treasure was buried.
Mbh.15.31.1279 Know that Drona was a portion of Vrihaspati, and that Drona's son is born of a portion of Rudra.
Mbh.16.4.181 When he reached Heaven, Vasava and the twin Ashvinis and Rudra and the Adityas and the Vasus and the Viswedevas, and Munis and Siddhas and many foremost ones among the Gandharvas, with the Apsaras, advanced to receive him.
