MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.106 The principal men were pleased with the purity of Yudhishthira, the courage of Arjuna, the submissive attention of Kunti to her superiors, and the humility of the twins, Nakula and Sahadeva; and all the people rejoiced in their heroic virtues.
Mbh.1.1.187 When I heard that the wicked Suvala of magic power, the root of the gaming and the feud, was slain in battle by Sahadeva, the son of Pandu, then, O Sanjaya, I had no hope of success.
Mbh.1.2.462 Here also is the death of Sakuni in battle at the hands of Sahadeva.
Mbh.1.61.2944 And Bhima of great reputation subjugated the East, the heroic Arjuna, the North, Nakula, the West; Sahadeva that slayer of all hostile heroes, the South.
Mbh.1.62.2971 Why also did the two other sons of Pritha Bhima and Arjuna and the two sons of Madri Nakula and Sahadeva, themselves injured by the wretched Kurus, follow Yudhishthira who was greatly addicted to the evil habit of gambling?
Mbh.1.63.3178 And Yudhishthira was born of the seed of Dharma Yama, the god of justice; and Bhima of the wolf's stomach was born of Marut the god of wind, and Dhananjaya, blessed with good fortune and the first of all wielders of weapons, was born of Indra; and Nakula and Sahadeva, of handsome features and ever engaged in the service of their superiors, were born of the twin Aswins.
Mbh.1.63.3184 From Yudhishthira was born Pritivindhya; from Vrikodara, Sutasoma; from Arjuna, Srutakirti; from Nakula, Satanika; and from Sahadeva, Srutasena of great prowess; and Bhima, in the forest begot on Hidimva a son named Ghatotkacha.
Mbh.1.67.3524 And, O monarch, learn that king Yudhishthira was a portion of Dharma; that Bhimasena was of the deity of wind; that Arjuna was of Indra, the chief of the celestials; and that Nakula and Sahadeva, the handsomest beings among all creatures, and unrivalled for beauty on earth, were similarly portions of the twin Aswins.
Mbh.1.95.5321 And on Madri were raised by the twin Aswins, the twins Nakula and Sahadeva.
Mbh.1.95.5341 And Yudhishthira begat Prativindhya; Bhima, Sutasoma; Arjuna, Srutakriti; Nakula, Satanika; and Sahadeva, Srutakarman.
Mbh.1.95.5348 And Sahadeva also married Vijaya, the daughter of Dyutimat, the king of Madra, obtaining her in a self-choice ceremony and begat upon her a son named Suhotra.
Mbh.1.124.6689 Madri thought of the twin Aswins, who coming unto her with speed begat upon her two sons that were twins named Nakula and Sahadeva, unrivalled on earth for personal beauty.
Mbh.1.124.6693 The eldest of Kunti's children was called Yudhishthira, the second Bhimasena, and the third Arjuna, and of Madri's sons, the first-born of the twins was called Nakula and the next Sahadeva.
Mbh.1.134.7231 The twins Nakula and Sahadeva excelled everybody in handling the sword.
Mbh.1.140.7457 Then Arjuna hastily bidding Yudhishthira not to engage in the fight, rushed forward, appointing the sons of Madri Nakula and Sahadeva the protectors of his chariot-wheels, while Bhimasena ever fighting in the van, mace in hand, ran ahead.
Mbh.1.141.7539 Sahadeva obtained the whole science of morality and duties from Vrihaspati the spiritual chief of celestials, and continued to live under the control of his brothers.
Mbh.1.150.7930 And beholding Purochana so very glad, Yudhishthira, the virtuous son of Kunti, addressing Bhima and Arjuna and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva said, The cruel-hearted wretch hath been well-deceived.
Mbh.1.156.8186 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing those words of hers, Yudhishthira suddenly rose up and Arjuna also and Nakula and Sahadeva of great energy and they beheld Bhima and the Rakshasa already engaged in fight, eager to overcome each other and dragging each other with great force, like two lions endued with great might.
Mbh.1.156.8191 Here do I stand to help thee, let me slay the Rakshasa, and let Nakula and Sahadeva protect our mother'
Mbh.1.187.9422 Vrihanta, Manimana, Dandadhara, Sahadeva, Jayatsena, Meghasandhi, Virata with his two sons Sankha and Uttara, Vardhakshemi, Susarma, Senavindu, Suketu with his two sons Sunama and Suvarcha, Suchitra, Sukumara, Vrika, Satyadhriti, Suryadhwaja, Rochamana, Nila, Chitrayudha, Agsuman, Chekitana, the mighty Sreniman, Chandrasena the mighty son of Samudrasena, Jarasandha, Vidanda, and Danda, the father and son, Paundraka, Vasudeva, Bhagadatta endued with great energy, Kalinga, Tamralipta, the king of Pattana, the mighty car-warrior Salya, the king of Madra, with his son, the heroic Rukmangada, Rukmaratha, Somadatta of the Kuru race with his three sons, all mighty chariot-fighters and heroes, viz, Bhuri, Bhurisrava, and Sala, Sudakshina, Kamvoja of the Puru race, Vrihadvala, Sushena, Sivi, the son of Usinara, Patcharanihanta, the king of Karusha, Sankarshana Valadeva, Vasudeva Krishna the mighty son of Rukmini, Samva, Charudeshna, the son of Pradyumna with Gada, Akrura, Satyaki, the high-souled Uddhava, Kritavarman, the son of Hridika, Prithu, Viprithu, Viduratha, Kanka, Sanku with Gaveshana, Asavaha, Aniruddha, Samika, Sarimejaya, the heroic Vatapi Jhilli Pindaraka, the powerful Usinara, all these of the Vrishni race, Bhagiratha, Vrihatkshatra, Jayadratha the son of Sindhu, Vrihadratha, Valhika, the mighty charioteer Srutayu, Uluka, Kaitava, Chitrangada and Suvangada, the highly intelligent Vatsaraja, the king of Kosala, Sisupala and the powerful Jarasandha, these and many other great kings, all Kshatriyas celebrated throughout the world, have come, O blessed one, for thee.
Mbh.1.192.9587 Thou shouldst wed first, then the strong-armed Bhima of inconceivable feats, then myself, then Nakula, and last of all, Sahadeva endued with great activity.
Mbh.1.193.9626 Then Sahadeva, the son of Madri, endued with great activity, spread on the ground a bed of kusa grass.
Mbh.1.196.9728 The twins Nakula and Sahadeva and Kunti wait where Krishna is.
Mbh.1.206.10176 Who also that desireth to live can overcome in battle the twins Nagula and Sahadeva like unto the sons of Yama himself, and well-skilled in fight?
Mbh.1.222.10874 Prativindhya by Yudhishthira, Sutasoma by Vrikodara, Srutakarman by Arjuna, Satanika by Nakula, and Srutasena by Sahadeva, these were the five heroes and great warriors that Panchali brought forth, like Aditi bringing forth the Adityas.
Mbh.1.222.10879 Again the son that Draupadi bore to Sahadeva was born under the constellation called Vahni-daivata Krittika, therefore was he called after the generalissimo of the celestial host, Srutasena Kartikeya.
Mbh.2.2.47 And the mighty Bhimasena accompanied by the twin brothers Nakula and Sahadeva and the priests and citizens all followed Krishna from behind.
Mbh.2.7.328 And Sahadeva, and Sunitha, and Valmiki of great ascetic merit; and Samika of truthful speech, and Prachetas ever fulfilling their promises, and Medhatithi, and Vamadeva, and Pulastya, Pulaha and Kratu; and Maruta and Marichi, and Sthanu of great ascetic merit; and Kakshivat, and Gautama, and Tarkhya, and also the Muni Vaishwanara; and the Muni Kalakavrikhiya and Asravya, and also Hiranmaya, and Samvartta, and Dehavya, and Viswaksena of great energy; and Kanwa, and Katyayana, O king, and Gargya, and Kaushika, all are present there along with the celestial waters and plants; and faith, and intelligence, and the goddess of learning, and wealth, religion, and pleasure; and lightning.
Mbh.2.13.517 And the wise Sahadeva administered justice impartially.
Mbh.2.14.602 They are called Asti and Prapti and are the sister of Sahadeva.
Mbh.2.22.1022 Vaisampayana said, Having spoken thus, and desiring to fight with those heroes of terrible achievements, king Jarasandha ordered his son Sahadeva to be installed on the throne.
Mbh.2.24.1111 And Govinda, moved by kindness towards them, took a portion of those presents, Then the son of Jarasandha, the high-souled Sahadeva, accompanied by his relatives and the principal officers of state, and with his priest in front came thither.
Mbh.2.24.1125 And, O Bharata, that chastiser of all foes having thus caused Jarasandha to be slain, took leave of Yudhishthira and Pritha, and Draupadi and Subhadra, and Bhimasena and Arjuna and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva.
Mbh.2.25.1140 And Bhimasena overcome by force the East and Sahadeva the South, and Nakula, O king, acquainted with all the weapons, conquered the West.
Mbh.2.30.1246 SECTION XXX Vaisampayana said, thus also Sahadeva, dismissed with affection by king Yudhisthira the just, marched towards the southern direction accompanied by a mighty host.
Mbh.2.30.1253 O Bharata, the son of Jamvaka gave battle to Sahadeva.
Mbh.2.30.1254 And Sahadeva defeating the prince marched towards the south.
Mbh.2.30.1267 Those illustrious kings however, without being tired an the encounter, were gratified with Sahadeva.
Mbh.2.30.1271 The battle that took place between king Nila and the mighty Sahadeva the son of Pandu, that slayer of hostile heroes, was fierce and terrible.
Mbh.2.30.1276 Janamejaya said, O regenerate one, why was it that the god Agni become hostile in battle unto Sahadeva, who was fighting simply for the accomplishment of a sacrifice and therefore, for the gratification of Agni himself?
Mbh.2.30.1295 And the virtuous Sahadeva, beholding his troops afflicted with fear and surrounded by flames of fire, himself stood there immovable as a mountain.
Mbh.2.30.1296 And purifying himself and touching water, the hero Sahadeva then addressed Agni, the god that sanctifieth everything, in these words, I bow unto thee, O thou whose track is always marked with smoke.
Mbh.2.30.1312 Sahadeva, addressing Agni again, said, O carrier of the sacrificial libations, it behoveth thee not to obstruct a sacrifice'
Mbh.2.30.1315 On the other hand approaching Sahadeva quietly and addressing that prince of the Kuru race, Agni that god of men gave him every assurance and said, O thou of the Kuru race, rise up from this posture.
Mbh.2.30.1321 And at last, after Agni had disappeared, king Nila came there, and at the command of that deity, worshipped with due rites Sahadeva, that tiger among men, that master of battle.
Mbh.2.30.1322 And Sahadeva accepted that worship and made him pay tribute.
Mbh.2.30.1338 And the intelligent Sahadeva, accepting them all, returned to his own kingdom.
Mbh.2.32.1393 And that chastiser of all foes, the son of Pandu, then commanded Sahadeva that foremost of all warriors and all ministers also, saying, Let persons be appointed to collect without loss of time, all those articles which the Brahmanas have directed as necessary for the performance of this sacrifice, and all materials and auspicious necessaries that Dhaumya may order as required for it, each of the kind needed and one after another in due order.
Mbh.2.32.1396 Simultaneously with these words of king Yudhisthira the just, Sahadeva that foremost of warriors, having accomplished everything, represented the matter to the king.
Mbh.2.32.1405 commanded his chief adviser Sahadeva, saying, Despatch thou, without loss of time, messengers endued with speed to invite all to the sacrifice.
Mbh.2.32.1406 And Sahadeva, hearing these words of the king, despatched messengers telling them, Invite ye all the Brahmanas in the kingdom and all the owners of land Kshatriyas and all the Vaisyas and also all the respectable Sudras, and bring them hither'
Mbh.2.35.1490 Thus commanded by Bhishma, Sahadeva endued with great prowess duly presented the first Arghya of excellent ingredients unto Krishna of the Vrishni race.
Mbh.2.38.1575 Sahadeva then answered Sisupala in words of grave import, saying, If amongst ye there be any king that cannot bear to see Kesava of dark hue, the slayer of Kesi, the possessor of immeasurable energy, worshipped by me, this my foot is placed on the heads of all mighty ones like him.
Mbh.2.38.1578 When Sahadeva thus showed his foot, no one among those intelligent and wise and proud and mighty monarchs said anything.
Mbh.2.38.1581 Vaisampayana continued, Then that god among men, Sahadeva cognisant of the distinction between a Brahmana and a Kshatriya, having worshipped those that deserved worship, completed that ceremony.
Mbh.2.44.1821 The powerful Dhrishtadyumna followed without loss of time king Virata: and Dhananjaya followed the illustrious and mighty charioteer Yajnasena; and the mighty Bhimasena followed Bhishma and Dhritarashtra: and Sahadeva, that master of battle, followed the brave Drona and his son; and Nakula, O king, followed Suvala with his son; and the sons of Draupadi with the son of Subhadra followed those mighty warriors, the kings of the mountainous countries.
Mbh.2.47.1951 Sakuni replied, Dhananjaya and Vasudeva, Bhimasena and Yudhishthira, Nakula and Sahadeva and Drupada with his sons, these cannot be vanquished in battle by even the celestials, for they are all great warriors wielding the largest bows, accomplished in weapons, and delighting in battle.
Mbh.2.49.2094 The twins Nakula and Sahadeva beholding from a distance that I was so hit at the head came and supported me in their arms, expressing great concern for me.
Mbh.2.49.2095 And Sahadeva repeatedly told me, as if with a smile, This O king, is the door.
Mbh.2.64.2603 Yudhishthira said, This Sahadeva administereth justice.
Mbh.2.66.2800 Sahadeva, bring some fire
Mbh.2.68.2960 And the son of Dhritarashtra beholding those kings and sons and grand sons of kings all remaining silent, smiled a little, and addressing the daughter of the king of Panchala, said, O Yajnaseni, the question thou hast put dependeth on thy husbands, on Bhima of mighty strength, on Arjuna, on Nakula, on Sahadeva.
Mbh.2.69.2996 Nakula hath been won, as also Bhimasena, and Yudhishthira also, and Sahadeva, and Arjuna.
Mbh.2.72.3116 And Sahadeva and the king Yudhishthira have made signs clearly testifying to their intentions.
Mbh.2.75.3224 And beholding this insult offered to him, the mighty and proud Bhima, suppressing his rising rage and following the steps of Yudhishthira, also spake these words while going out of the Kaurava court, I will slay Duryodhana, and Dhananjaya will slay Karna, and Sahadeva will slay Sakuni that gambler with dice.
Mbh.2.75.3235 Vaisampayana continued, After Arjuna had said this, Sahadeva the handsome son of Madri, endued with great energy, desirous of slaying Sakuni, waving his mighty arms and sighing like snake, exclaimed, with eyes red with anger, Thou disgrace of the Gandhara kings, those whom thou thinkest as defeated are not really so.
Mbh.2.75.3240 Then, O monarch hearing these words of Sahadeva, Nakula the handsomest of men spake these words, I shall certainly send unto the abode of Yama all those wicked sons of Dhritarashtra, who desirous of death and impelled by Fate, and moved also by the wish of doing what is agreeable to Duryodhana, have used harsh and insulting speeches towards this daughter o Yajnasena at the gambling match.
Mbh.2.76.3258 Thou knowest every rule of morality; Dhananjaya is ever victorious in battle; Bhimasena is the slayer of foes; Nakula is the gatherer of wealth; Sahadeva hath administrative talents, Dhaumya is the foremost of all conversant with the vedas; and the well-behaved Draupadi is conversant with virtue and economy.
Mbh.2.77.3289 While living in the woods, keep thy eye on my child Sahadeva.
Mbh.2.77.3330 O Sahadeva, desist from going.
Mbh.2.78.3353 And Sahadeva, the son of Madri, hath gone away besmearing his face, and Nakula, the handsomest of men, O king, hath gone away, staining himself with dust and his heart in great affliction.
Mbh.2.78.3366 And Sahadeva goeth besmearing his lace, thinking None may recognise me in this day of trouble'
Mbh.3.27.1274 O Yudhishthira, at sight of Madri's son, the handsome and brave Sahadeva in exile?
Mbh.3.27.1275 Why doth not thy anger blaze up, O king, it sight of both Nakula and Sahadeva overwhelmed with grief, though so undeserving of distress?
Mbh.3.35.1821 Nakula, Sahadeva, and old Kunti, that mother of heroes, are all dumb, desiring to please thee.
Mbh.3.35.1839 How also will these children, the brothers, Nakula and Sahadeva, equal unto a couple of young lions, both live in secret?
Mbh.3.51.2542 Amongst the Pandavas, the illustrious Nakula and Sahadeva, of celestial origin and equal unto the chief himself of the celestials in splendour, are invincible in battle.
Mbh.3.80.3935 After Nakula's lamentations, Sahadeva said, He who having vanquished mighty warriors in battle won wealth and virgins and brought them unto the king on the occasion of the great Rajasuya sacrifice, that hero of immeasurable splendour who having vanquished single-handed the assembled Yadavas in battle, ravished Subhadra with the consent of Vasudeva, he, who having invaded the dominion of the illustrious Drupada gave, O Bharata, unto the preceptor Drona his tuition fee, beholding, O king, that Jishnu's bed of grass empty in our asylum, my heart refuses consolation.
Mbh.3.90.4866 There king Sahadeva had celebrated a sacrifice measuring out the ground by a throw of the Samya.
Mbh.3.90.4867 It is for this reason, O Yudhishthira, that Indra sang the praises of Sahadeva in verse.
Mbh.3.90.4870 on the Yamuna Sahadeva worshipped the sacrificial fire, with gifts in a hundred thousands to Brahmanas.
Mbh.3.119.6109 This powerful Sahadeva vanquished all the kings in the south; those lords of men who had gathered on the coast of the sea, look at him now in an anchorite's dress.
Mbh.3.125.6392 who was the son of Sahadeva, and a most excellent maker of gifts.
Mbh.3.139.7094 Then the high-souled monarch approached the twins, Nakula and Sahadeva, and after smelling their heads, and rubbing their persons, with tears said unto them, Do not fear.
Mbh.3.140.7101 Or, O mighty Bhima of large eyes, do return from hence, taking with thee Sahadeva, and all our charioteers, cooks, servants, cars, horses, and Brahmanas worn out with travel, while I together with Nakula and the sage Lomasa of severe austerities proceed, subsisting on the lightest fare and observing vows.
Mbh.3.140.7105 O Bharata, it is superfluous then to say that if thou seest neither myself nor Sahadeva nor Krishna, thy dejection will certainly increase.
Mbh.3.140.7109 Sahadeva is always devoted to thee; he too will never retrace his steps.
Mbh.3.140.7124 Therefore, O son of Kunti, shall we all practise austerities, O king, Nakula, Sahadeva, Bhimasena, thou and myself shall then see him of the white steeds, O Kunti's son
Mbh.3.143.7284 Vaisampayana said, Having heard these words of Nakula, the king as also Bhima and Sahadeva, became sorely afflicted, and hastily ran towards her.
Mbh.3.145.7389 Surely, from affection and doubting their prowess, that foremost of men, Yudhishthira, will not let Nakula and Sahadeva come in search of us.
Mbh.3.154.7813 And seeing Yudhishthira the just and the great sage Lomasa and Nakula and Sahadeva and also the other foremost of Brahmanas, they all bowed themselves down in humility.
Mbh.3.156.7844 Thereupon that son of Pandu, Sahadeva, extricated himself with exertion, and by force snatched the sword named Kausika from the grasp of the enemy and began to call Bhimasena, taking the direction in which that mighty one had gone.
Mbh.3.156.7867 Then addressing Draupadi, Nakula and Sahadeva, Yudhishthira said, Do ye not entertain any fear of this wretched Rakshasa, I have checked his speed.
Mbh.3.156.7869 O king, staring at the Rakshasa bereft of sense, Sahadeva addressed Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, saying, What can be more meritorious for a Kshatriya than to fall in fight, or defeat a foe?
Mbh.3.156.7880 I am Pandu's son, Sahadeva.
Mbh.3.156.7882 Madri's son, Sahadeva, was speaking thus, when Bhimasena made his appearance, with a mace in his hand, like unto Vasava himself wielding the thunder-bolt.
Mbh.3.156.7883 And here he saw his two brothers and the noble-minded Draupadi on the shoulders of the demon, and Sahadeva on the ground rebuking the Rakshasa and also that stupid Rakshasa himself deprived of sense by Fate, going round in different directions through bewilderment caused by Destiny.
Mbh.3.178.8846 And gifted with manliness, the twins, Nakula and Sahadeva, following their elder brother me, and always protected by the strength of my arms, will, owing to my destruction, be depressed and deprived of their prowess, and stricken with grief.
Mbh.3.178.8862 And he also directed Nakula and Sahadeva to protect the Brahmanas.
Mbh.3.233.11829 Thy brave sons, Prativindhya by Yudhishthira and Sutasoma by Bhima, and Srutakarman by Arjuna, and Satanika by Nakula, and Srutasena begot by Sahadeva, are well and have become skilled in weapons.
Mbh.3.268.13038 Endued with high wisdom and having Sahadeva for his second, possessed of exceeding lightness of hand, he fighteth with the sword, making dexterous passes therewith.
Mbh.3.268.13040 And that hero skilled in weapons and possessed of intelligence and wisdom, and intent on doing what is agreeable to the son of Dharma, that favourite and youngest born of the Pandavas, is my husband Sahadeva!
Mbh.3.269.13057 And Sahadeva from his chariot began to fell with his iron shafts, many warriors fighting on elephants, like birds dropped from the boughs of a tree.
Mbh.3.269.13061 And king Yudhishthira the just, whose steeds had been slain taking this opportunity, descended with Indrasena from his chariot and mounted that of Sahadeva.
Mbh.3.269.13080 And king Yudhishthira the just, seeing Draupadi with Dhaumya walking before, caused her to be taken up on a chariot by the heroic Sahadeva, the son of Madri.
Mbh.3.310.15152 And Sahadeva said, Surely, O Bharata, this calamity hath befallen us because I did not slay Sakuni when he defeated thee at dice
Mbh.3.310.15164 And, O represser of foes, seeing Nakula's delay, Yudhishthira the son of Kunti said unto Sahadeva, the heroic brother of Nakula, O Sahadeva, it is long since our brother, he who was born immediately before thee, hath gone from hence!
Mbh.3.310.15166 At this, Sahadeva, saying, So be it' set out in that direction; and coming to the spot, beheld his brother lying dead on the ground.
Mbh.3.310.15170 Sahadeva, however, who was extremely thirsty, disregarding these words, drank of the water, and having drunk of it, dropped down dead.
Mbh.3.310.15192 And seeing Dhananjaya's delay Kunti's son Yudhishthira addressed Bhimasena, saying, O represser of foes, it is a long while that Nakula and Sahadeva and Vibhatsu have gone to fetch water, and they have not come yet, O Bharata!
Mbh.3.313.15578 And although fully able to destroy the foe, Nakula and Sahadeva of dreadful prowess have been ever prevented by me!
Mbh.4.3.75 Yudhishthira said, How wilt thou, O Sahadeva, bear thyself before that king?
Mbh.4.3.77 Sahadeva replied, I will become a keeper of the kine of Virata's king.
Mbh.4.5.202 And the heroic Sahadeva also, possessed of a mild disposition, then united the string of that bow with which he had subjugated the countries of the south.
Mbh.4.10.378 SECTION X Vaisampayana said, Then clad in a cowherd's dress, and speaking the dialect of cowherds, Sahadeva came to the cowpen of Virata's city.
Mbh.4.10.380 And he directed his men to summon Sahadeva.
Mbh.4.10.386 Having come before the king that afflicter of foes, Sahadeva answered in accents deep as the roar of the cloud, I am a Vaisya, Arishtanemi by name.
Mbh.4.10.395 Sahadeva answered, Yudhishthira, the eldest of the five sons of Pandu, had one division of kine numbering eight hundred and ten thousand, and another, ten thousand, and another, again, twenty thousand, and so on.
Mbh.4.10.406 Vaisampayana continued, Then, O king, undiscovered by that monarch, that lord of men, Sahadeva, maintained by Virata, began to live happily.
Mbh.4.13.475 And Sahadeva, too, who was disguised as a cowherd gave milk, curds and clarified butter to his brothers.
Mbh.4.13.525 And beholding around Sahadeva a herd of well-trained bullocks, Virata that bull among men, bestowed upon him also wealth of diverse kinds.
Mbh.4.19.788 O Bharata, beholding the youngest of you all, Sahadeva, superintending the kine, in the guise of a cowherd, I grow pale.
Mbh.4.19.790 I do not know, O mighty-armed one, what sin Sahadeva may have committed for which that hero of unbaffled prowess suffereth such misery.
Mbh.4.19.794 My mother-in-law always applauds the heroic Sahadeva as one possessed of nobility, excellent behaviour, and rectitude of conduct.
Mbh.4.19.795 Ardently attached to her sons, the weeping Kunti stood, embracing Sahadeva while he was about to set out with us for the great forest.
Mbh.4.19.796 And she addressed me saying, Sahadeva is bashful and sweet-speeched, and virtuous.
Mbh.4.19.800 O Pandava, beholding that foremost of warriors, Sahadeva, engaged in tending kine, and sleeping at night on calf-skins, how can I bear to live?
Mbh.4.31.1275 Hearing these words of the king, Satanika, O monarch, immediately ordered cars for those sons of Pritha, viz, the royal Yudhishthira, and Bhima, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and commanded by the king, the charioteers, with cheerful hearts and keeping loyalty in view, very soon got cars ready for the Pandavas.
Mbh.4.33.1356 And powerful Sahadeva also, commanded by Yudhishthira, slew three hundred brave warriors.
Mbh.4.43.1653 And this bow adorned with golden images of insects and set also with gems and stones, belongeth to that son of Madri who is called Sahadeva.
Mbh.4.43.1659 And these arrows, all effulgent as, the sun, painted all over with various colours, and capable of destroying enemies by thousands are those of Sahadeva.
Mbh.4.43.1665 And this huge scimitar, cased in a sheath of cow-skin, strong and irresistible belongeth to Sahadeva
Mbh.4.44.1667 But where are that Arjuna, the son of Pritha, and Yudhishthira of the Kuru race, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Bhimasena, the sons of Pandu?
Mbh.4.44.1671 Thy father's courtier is Yudhishthira and thy father's cook Vallava is Bhimasena, the groom of horses is Nakula, and Sahadeva is in the cow-pen.
Mbh.4.50.1929 In what single combat didst thou vanquish Dhananjaya, or Nakula, or Sahadeva, although thou hast robbed them of their wealth?
Mbh.4.71.2747 Which of these is Nakula, and which Sahadeva and where is the celebrated Draupadi?
Mbh.4.71.2752 He who had been the keeper of thy horse is that slayer of foes called Nakula, and this one is Sahadeva, the keeper of thy kine.
Mbh.5.23.1014 Do they remember the mighty Sahadeva, the son of Madri, who in Dantakura conquered the Kalingas, shooting arrows by both the left and right hand?
Mbh.5.26.1110 O sire, even Indra would forbear to rob us of our sovereignty as long as Bhima and Arjuna and the heroic Nakula and the patient Sahadeva are alive!
Mbh.5.48.2690 When bent upon carnage Sahadeva, mounted on his car of noiseless wheels, and motion incapable of being obstructed, and set with golden stars, and drawn by well-trained steeds, will make the heads of monarchs roll on the field of battle with volleys of arrows, indeed, beholding that warrior skilled in weapons, seated on his car in the midst of that frightful havoc, turning now to the left and now to the right and falling upon the foe in all directions, then will the son of Dhritarashtra repent for this war.
Mbh.5.48.2691 Indeed, when the modest but mighty Sahadeva, skilled in battle, truthful, conversant with all the ways of morality, and endued with great activity and impetuousness, will fall upon the son of Gandhari in fierce encounter and rout all his followers, then will the son of Dhritarashtra repent for this war.
Mbh.5.50.2867 He who vanquished in battle the warriors of Kasi, Anga, and Kalinga, with that Sahadeva will the Pandavas encounter you in battle.
Mbh.5.50.2868 He, who in energy hath for his equals only four men on earth, viz, Aswatthaman and Dhrishtaketu and Rukmi and Pradyumna, with that Sahadeva, youngest in years, that hero among men, that gladdener of Madri's heart, with him, O King, will you have a destructive battle.
Mbh.5.50.2880 Sahadeva, the son of Jarasandha, and Jayatsena, both unrivalled heroes in battle, are resolved upon fighting for the Pandavas.
Mbh.5.56.3143 And steeds of sable bodies and backs variegated like the wings of the Tittri bird, all presented by his gratified brother Falguna, and superior to those of the heroic Falguna himself, cheerfully carry Sahadeva.
Mbh.5.57.3165 And the heroic son of Madri, Sahadeva, who setteth up terrible roars in battle, hath intended to take as his share thy brother-in-law, the son of Suvala.
Mbh.5.57.3175 Those that have Yudhishthira for their leader, the slayer of Madhu for their protector, the heroic Savyasachin and Vrikodara for their warriors, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata, and Satyaki, and Drupada, and Dhrishtaketu with his son, and Uttamaujas, and the unconquerable Yudhamanyu of the Panchalas, and Sikhandin, and Kshatradeva, and Uttara, the son of Virata, and Kasayas, the Chedis, the Matsyas, the Srinjayas, Vabhru the son of Virata, the Panchalas, and the Prabhadrakas, for fighting for them, those, indeed, from whom Indra himself cannot, if they are unwilling, snatch this earth, those heroes, cool and steady, in fight, who can split the very mountains, alas, it is with them that are endued with every virtue and possessed of superhuman prowess that this wicked son of mine, O Sanjaya, desireth to fight, disregarding me even though I am crying myself hoarse'
Mbh.5.80.3881 What mortal man is there, of flesh and blood, who would encounter in battle Yudhishthira and Bhimasena, the invincible Vibhatsu and Sahadeva, myself, thyself and Rama, O Kesava, and Satyaki of mighty energy.
Mbh.5.81.3887 SECTION LXXXI Sahadeva said, What hath been said by the king is, indeed, eternal virtue, but thou, O chastiser of foes, shouldst act, in such a way that war may certainly happen.
Mbh.5.81.3891 Satyaki said, The high-souled Sahadeva, O thou of mighty arms, hath spoken the truth.
Mbh.5.82.3899 SECTION LXXXII Vaisampayana said, Hearing the peaceful words of the king that were fraught with both virtue and profit, king Drupada's daughter Krishna, of long black tresses, afflicted with great grief, applauding Sahadeva and that mighty car-warrior Satyaki, addressed Madhava seated by his side.
Mbh.5.90.4194 He that is compassionate to all creatures, is endued with modesty and acquainted with mighty weapons, is soft and delicate and virtuous, he that is dear to me, that mighty bowman Sahadeva, that hero and ornament of assemblies, he, O Krishna, who is youthful in years, is devoted to the service of his brothers, and is conversant with both virtue and profit, whose brothers, O slayer of Madhu, always applaud the disposition of that high-souled and well-behaved son of mine, tell me, O thou of the Vrishni race, of that heroic Sahadeva, that foremost of warriors, that son of Madri, who always waiteth submissively on his elder brothers and so reverentially on me.
Mbh.5.90.4205 When I remember the forcible dragging of Draupadi to the assembly, then neither Vibhatsu nor Yudhishthira, nor Bhima, nor Nakula, nor Sahadeva, becometh an object of affection to me.
Mbh.5.126.5592 As yet Nakula, and Sahadeva, Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, and Virata, and Sikhandin, and Sisupal's son, accoutred in mail and all well-versed in arms, do not penetrate thy ranks, like huge crocodiles penetrating the deep, and pour their arrowy showers, so let hostility cease.
Mbh.5.138.6185 Obtaining Arjuna now, who is skilled in every weapon, and Bhima of firm resolution, and Gandiva and the couple of inexhaustible quivers, and that car of Arjuna and that banner bearing the device of the ape, and Nakula and Sahadeva, both endued with great might and energy, and Vasudeva also, as his allies, Yudhishthira will not forgive thee.
Mbh.5.140.6279 Then Nakula and Sahadeva, and the five sons of Draupadi, and the Panchalas with that mighty car-warrior Sikhandin, will all proceed behind thee.
Mbh.5.141.6323 He that hath Hrishikesa for his guide, and Dhananjaya and that mighty car-warrior Bhima for his combatants, as also Nakula and Sahadeva, and the sons of Draupadi, is fit, O Madhava, to rule over the whole earth.
Mbh.5.141.6335 The two sons of Madri, Nakula and Sahadeva, of great fame and prowess, will be the slayers of the sacrificial animals; rows of bright cars furnished with standards of variegated hue, will, O Govinda, be stakes for tying the animals, O Janardana, in this sacrifice.
Mbh.5.143.6429 I saw Nakula and Sahadeva and that mighty car-warrior Satyaki, adorned with white bracelets, white cuirasses, white garlands, and white robes.
Mbh.5.151.6767 Tell us now, O Sahadeva, O son of Kuru's race, who that warrior, is conversant with all kinds of battle-array, that may become the leader of these seven and may also withstand in battle Bhishma who is like unto a fire having arrows for its flames.
Mbh.5.151.6769 Sahadeva said, Closely related to us, sympathising with us in our distress, endued with great might, conversant with every virtue, skilled in weapons, and irresistible in battle, the mighty king of the Matsyas, Virata, relying upon whom we hope to recover our share of the kingdom, will be able to bear in battle both Bhishma and all those mighty car-warriors'
Mbh.5.151.6770 Vaisampayana continued, After Sahadeva had said this, eloquent Nakula then said these words, He that in years, in knowledge of scriptures, in perseverance, in family and birth, is respectable; he that is endued with modesty, strength, and prosperity; he that is well-versed in all branches of learning; he that studied the science of weapons with the sage Bharadwaja; he, who is irresistible and firmly devoted to truth; he that always challenges Drona and mighty Bhishma; he that belongs to one of the foremost of royal houses; he that is a famous leader of hosts; he that resembles a tree of hundred branches in consequence of sons and grandsons that surround him; that king, who, with his wife, performed, moved by wrath, the austerest of penances for the destruction of Drona; that hero, who is an ornament of assemblies; that bull among monarchs who always cherishes us like a father; that father-in-law of ours, Drupada, should be our generalissimo.
Mbh.5.158.6991 Vaisampayana continued, Summoning then those warriors eager for battle, viz, Drupada and Virata, and that bull of Sini's race, and Dhrishtadyumna the prince of Panchala, and king Dhrishtaketu, and prince Shikhandi of Panchala, and Sahadeva, the ruler of the Magadhas, Yudhishthira duly appointed them in the command of his seven divisions.
Mbh.5.161.7179 Next, thou must say these words of mine unto Sahadeva in the presence of the assembled monarchs, Fight in battle now, to the best of thy power!
Mbh.5.163.7362 Hearing these words of Bhimasena, the wrathful Sahadeva also, with eyes red in anger, said these words in the presence of the assembled troops, words that become that proud hero.
Mbh.5.163.7369 Hearing these words of both Bhima and Sahadeva, Falguni smilingly addressed Bhima, saying, O Bhimasena, they that have provoked hostilities with thee, cannot live!
Mbh.5.164.7457 And Sahadeva also, O monarch, said these words of grave import, O Suyodhana, it will all be as thou wishest!
Mbh.5.164.7474 And he also faithfully communicated unto Dhritarashtra's son the words of Vasudeva, of Bhima, of king Yudhishthira the Just, of Nakula and Virata and Drupada, O Bharata and the words of Sahadeva and Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandin, and the words also that were spoken subsequently by Kesava and Arjuna.
Mbh.5.165.7485 And he urged Sahadeva against Sakuni, and Chekitana against Sala, and the five sons of Draupadi against the Trigartas.
Mbh.5.167.7543 With his car-army he will cause a great havoc among thy foes, O child, he had hostilities with Sahadeva.
Mbh.5.199.8852 And the son of Pandu ordered that those mighty bowmen, the five sons of Draupadi and Abhimanyu, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and all the Prabhadrakas, and ten thousand horses, and two thousand elephants, and ten thousand foot-soldiers, and five hundred cars, constituting the first irresistible division of his army, should be placed under the command of Bhimasena.
Mbh.6.19.913 And Bhimasena, and Dhrishtadyumna endued with great energy, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and king Dhrishtaketu, became the leaders of that force.
Mbh.6.25.1085 And Kunti's son king Yudhishthira blew the conch called Anantavijaya; while Nakula and Sahadeva, those conches called respectively Sughosa and Manipushpaka
Mbh.6.43.2006 Sahadeva said, When these hostile divisions, terrible and numerous, are here with whom we are to fight, whither dost thou go, O king, in the direction of our foes'
Mbh.6.43.2016 When Dhananjaya, however, is his protector, and Pandu's son Vrikodara, and Nakula, and Sahadeva also, why doth the eldest son of Pandu come hither in fear?
Mbh.6.44.2176 And the five sons of Draupadi, and the mighty car-warrior Saubhadra and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, rushed against those Dhartarashtras, tearing them with whetted shafts like summits of mountains with the impetuous bolts of heaven.
Mbh.6.45.2218 And Durmukha rushing against the mighty Sahadeva battling in that terrific encounter, pierced him with a shower of arrows.
Mbh.6.45.2219 The heroic Sahadeva then, in that fearful battle, overthrew Durmukha's charioteer with an arrow of great sharpness.
Mbh.6.45.2269 Sudakshina, however, O great king, piercing that mighty car-warrior, viz, the son of Sahadeva, failed to make him waver for he stood like the Mainaka mountain against the assaults of Indra.
Mbh.6.50.2650 And Nakula and Sahadeva placed themselves on the left wing.
Mbh.6.51.2675 And Kunti's son king Yudhishthira blew the conch called Anantavijaya, while Nakula and Sahadeva those conches called Sughosa and Manipushpaka
Mbh.6.62.3372 Then the sons of Draupadi, and that mighty car-warrior, the son of Subhadra, and Nakula and Sahadeva, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, protecting Bhima's rear, rushed behind him, checking all by scattering their arrowy showers like the very clouds pouring rain on the mountain breast.
Mbh.6.71.3814 And Vikarna engaged with Sahadeva, and Chitrasena with Sikhandin.
Mbh.6.72.3843 And Sahadeva proceeded against those invincible warriors, viz, Sakuni and that mighty car-warrior Uluka, those great bowmen, who were sire and son.
Mbh.6.75.3963 Drupada, and Dhananjaya the son of Pandu, formed the head of that array, and Sahadeva and that mighty car-warrior Nakula formed its two eyes.
Mbh.6.82.4284 And Nakula and Sahadeva went forth against the king of the Madras.
Mbh.6.84.4428 Then Sahadeva, beholding his maternal uncle, engaged in battle with him, covered him with arrows like the clouds covering the maker of day.
Mbh.6.84.4435 Then Sahadeva of great prowess, O Bharata, excited with wrath, took up a powerful shaft, and rushing at the ruler of the Madras, shot it at him.
Mbh.6.90.4743 Nakula and Sahadeva fell upon the Kaurava cavalry.
Mbh.6.100.5341 Then king Yudhishthira, and that son of Pandu, viz, Bhimasena, and the twin sons of Madri, viz, Nakula and Sahadeva, clad in mail, took up their position in the van of that array and therefore, at the very head of all their troops.
Mbh.6.102.5422 What also did Bhima, that foremost of car-warriors, and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, and Nakula, and Sahadeva and the mighty car-warrior Satyaki, and Dhananjaya, do with my troops in battle?
Mbh.6.102.5425 I will also describe to thee the prowess that Arjuna put forth in battle, and Bhimasena the son of Pandu and Nakula, and Sahadeva, as also the warriors of thy army headed by Bhishma and Drona, all of whom fearlessly achieved wonderful feats of diverse kinds, Alamvusha, uttering loud shouts and repeatedly roaring at Abhimanyu, rushed impetuously against that mighty car-warrior in battle, saying, Wait, Wait, Abhimanyu also, repeatedly roaring like a lion, rushed with at great force at that mighty bowman, viz, the son of Rishyasringa, who was an implacable foe of the former's sire.
Mbh.6.106.5624 Then Suvala's son Sakuni, with hundreds and thousands of horsemen having bright spears and swords and lances in hand, and who formed a proud, well-dressed, and strong body bearing standards, and who were mingled with excellent foot-soldiers that were all well-trained and skilled in battle began to cheek Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Yudhishthira the son of Pandu, surrounding those foremost of men on all sides.
Mbh.6.106.5645 And Nakula and Sahadeva struck him with seven straight shafts.
Mbh.6.107.5653 And having pierced Nakula with three shafts, he pierced Sahadeva with seven.
Mbh.6.109.5932 And Nakula and Sahadeva, and the mighty car-warrior Satyaki, approaching thy army, began to afflict it with great vigour.
Mbh.6.111.6023 And Nakula, Sahadeva, and the valiant king Yudhishthira also, and all the rest of the warriors, O monarch, rushed against Bhishma.
Mbh.6.111.6029 And so, O king, Kripa the son of Saradwat, excited with rage, resisted Sahadeva proceeding towards Bhishma's car.
Mbh.6.112.6105 Like an infuriate elephant in the forest rushing against an infuriate compeer, Kripa, the son of Saradwat, proceeded against Sahadeva who was advancing upon Bhishma.
Mbh.6.112.6108 And cutting off his bow, Sahadeva then pierced Kripa with nine arrows.
Mbh.6.117.6366 And as regards Dhrishtaketu, the valiant and heroic Sahadeva, the son of Madri, possessed of great prowess, bore him away from the field.
Mbh.6.119.6534 Then the king of the Panchalas the valiant Dhrishtaketu, Bhimasena the son of Pandu, Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race, the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, Chekitana, and the five Kaikaya brothers, and the mighty-armed Satyaki and Subhadra's son, and Ghatotkacha, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Sikhandin, and the valiant Kuntibhoja, and Susarman, and Virata, these and many other powerful warriors of the Pandava army, afflicted by the shafts of Bhishma, seemed to sink in an ocean of grief, Phalguni, however, rescued them all.
Mbh.6.123.6843 As long as Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Bhimasena, the sons of Pandu, do not, O monarch, exterminate thy army, it seems to me that friendly relations should be restored between thee and the heroic Pandavas!
Mbh.7.8.264 And the Kekaya princes, and Bhimasena, and Subhadra's son and Ghatotkacha and Yudhishthira, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the ruler of the Matsyas, and the son of Drupada, and the five sons of Draupadi, all filled with joy, and Dhrishtaketu, and Satyaki, and the wrathful Chitrasena, and the mighty car-warrior, Yuyutsu, and many other kings, O monarch, who followed the sons of Pandu, all achieved diverse feats in keeping with their lineage and prowess.
Mbh.7.10.373 When Sahadeva who resembles an angry snake of virulent poison, when that hero owning white steeds and invincible in battle, observant of laudable vows, incapable of being baffled in his purposes, gifted with modesty, and never vanquished in fight, came upon us, what heroes of our army surrounded him?
Mbh.7.14.577 Sakuni, full of a hundred kinds of deceit, rushed towards Sahadeva, and pierced the latter's charioteer, and standard, and car, with many keen-pointed shafts.
Mbh.7.14.578 Sahadeva, however, without being much excited, cutting off Sauvala's standard and bow and car-driver and car, with sharp arrows, pierced Sauvala himself with sixty shafts.
Mbh.7.14.656 Then Virata and Drupada, and Dhristaketu, and Yudhishthira, and Satyaki, and Kekaya, and Bhima, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Sikhandin, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the five sons of Draupadi, all exclaimed, Excellent!
Mbh.7.16.730 And piercing Sikhandin with twelve arrows, and Uttamaujas with twenty, and Nakula with five, and Sahadeva with seven, and Yudhishthira with twelve, and each of the five sons of Draupadi with three, and Satyaki with five, and the ruler of Matsyas with ten arrows, and agitating the entire host in that battle, he rushed against one after another of the foremost warriors of the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.23.1089 Steeds, fleet as the wind, and of variegated hue, bore Sahadeva with upraised weapons to that fierce battle.
Mbh.7.23.1177 The Vaishnava bow was held by Nakula, and the bow called Aswina was held by Sahadeva.
Mbh.7.30.1630 Then Dhrishtadyumna, and Bhima and Subhadra's son, and Arjuna himself, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, began to protect Satyaki in that battle.
Mbh.7.32.1690 In knowledge of scriptures, gravity, sweetness of temper, righteousness and prowess, the heroic Sahadeva is equal to the Aswins themselves.
Mbh.7.32.1693 In humility, he was equal to Sahadeva and Nakula'
Mbh.7.33.1720 and Arjuna's son Abhimanyu, and Kshatradharman, and the valiant Vrihatkshatra, and Dhrishtaketu, the ruler of the Chedis, and the twin sons of Madri, viz, Nakula and Sahadeva, and Ghatotkacha, and the powerful Yudhamanyu and the unvanquished Sikhandin, and the irresistible Uttamaujas and the mighty car-warrior Virata, and the five sons of Draupadi, these all excited with wrath, and the valiant son of Sisupala, and the Kaikeyas of mighty energy, and the Srinjayas by thousands, these and others, accomplished in weapons and difficult of being resisted in battle, suddenly rushed, at the head of their respective followers, against Bharadwaja's son, from a desire of battle.
Mbh.7.37.1886 Seeing that warrior of great proficiency in battle, Bharadwaja's son of great wisdom, with eyes expanded in joy, quickly came towards Kripa, and addressing him said, as if crushing by that speech of his the very vitals of thy son, O Bharata, the following words, Yonder cometh the youthful son of Subhadra at the head of the Parthas, delighting all his friends, and king Yudhishthira, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Bhimasena, the son of Pandu, and all his kinsmen, and relatives by marriage, and all who are watching the battle as spectators without taking any part in it.
Mbh.7.40.1979 Sanjaya said, Yudhishthira and Bhimasena, and Sikhandin and Satyaki, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and Dhrishtadyumna and Virata, and Drupada, and Kekaya, and Dhristaketu, all filled with wrath, and the Matsya warrior, rushed to battle.
Mbh.7.81.3577 Commanded by the king, the man introduced that concourse of heroes, consisting of Virata and Bhimasena and Dhrishtadyumna and Satyaki, and Dhrishtaketu, the ruler of the Chedis, and the mighty car-warriors, Drupada, and Sikhandin, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and Chekitana, and the ruler of the Kalikayas, and Yuyutsu, of Kuru's race, and Uttamaujas of the Panchalas, and Yudhamanyu, and Suvahu, and the five sons of Draupadi.
Mbh.7.83.3694 There where Vrikodara and Arjuna are, and the Vrishni hero, Satyaki, and Uttamaujas of the Panchalas, and the invincible Yudhamanyu, and the irrepressible Dhrishtadyumna, and the unvanquished Sikhandin, the Asmakas, the Kekayas, and Kshatradharman of the Somakas, the ruler of the Chedis, and Chekitana, and Vibhu, the son of the ruler of the Kasi, the sons of Draupadi, and Virata and the mighty car-warrior Drupada, and those tigers among men viz, the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the stayer of Madhu to offer counsel, who is there in this world that would fight these, expecting to live?
Mbh.7.92.4257 Sakuni with seven hundred Gandhara warriors armed with bows, darts and swords, resisted the son of Madri viz, Sahadeva.
Mbh.7.95.4394 Then king Yudhishthira and Bhimasena, the son of Pandu, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, desirous of protecting Satyaki, and the Matsyas, and the Salweya troops, speedily proceeded towards Drona.
Mbh.7.103.4778 That scorcher of foes, viz, Durmukha, covered the advancing Sahadeva with many thousands of swiftly-coursing shafts.
Mbh.7.103.4813 Meanwhile, king Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, getting up on the car of Sahadeva, retreated from the field, borne away by swift steeds
Mbh.7.104.4834 Thy son Durmukha sped sixty shafts at Sahadeva, and uttered a loud shout in that battle, challenging that son of Pandu.
Mbh.7.104.4838 holding the mighty Durmukha fighting furiously, Sahadeva, then, O Bharata, once more struck him with nine shafts.
Mbh.7.104.4839 Endued with great strength, Sahadeva then cut off Durmukha's standard with a broad-headed arrow and struck down his four steeds with four other arrows.
Mbh.7.104.4842 And cutting off Durmukha's large bow with a razor-faced arrow, Sahadeva pierced Durmukha himself in that battle with five arrows.
Mbh.7.104.4844 Then that slayer of hostile heroes, viz, Sahadeva, filled with rage slew in that great battle Niramitra in the midst of his division with a broad-headed arrow.
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.7.105.4871 Then the son of Sahadeva, ascertaining the foe to be on the point of leaving the field in consequence of the brothers, cut off, with a razor-faced arrow, the head of that illustrious warrior.
Mbh.7.106.4932 Then drawing his terrible bow whose twang resembled the thunder of Indra, he pierced the son of the Wind-god with five and twenty shafts, and Bhimasena's son with five, and Yudhishthira with three, and Sahadeva with seven, and Nakula with three and seventy, and each of the five sons of Draupadi with five shafts, and uttered a loud roar.
Mbh.7.106.4933 Then Bhimasena pierced him in return with nine shafts, and Sahadeva with five.
Mbh.7.108.5151 The five Kekaya brothers, and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, and Virata, and Drupada, and the mighty car-warrior Sikhandin and Dhrishtaketu of great strength, and Kuntibhoja, O sire, Nakula, and Sahadeva, and the Panchalas, and the Srinjayas, all these, O sire, will without doubt, very carefully protect me.
Mbh.7.111.5419 Then Sahadeva pierced the son of Hridika with twenty shafts, and Yudhishthira the just pierced him with five and Nakula pierced him with a hundred.
Mbh.7.119.5827 What, however, O Kaurava, wilt thou do when thou wilt see the wielder of Gandiva in battle, or Bhimasena, or the twins Nakula and Sahadeva?
Mbh.7.121.5940 Then Bhimasena and Dhrishtadyumna, O sire, and Nakula and Sahadeva and king Yudhishthira the Just, loudly shouted, Come, Strike, Rush!
Mbh.7.140.7085 Then Arjuna said, O eldest brother of Sala, equal to what I bear to king Yudhishthira the Just, or Bhima, that foremost of all mighty persons, or Nakula, or Sahadeva, is the love I bear to thee.
Mbh.7.151.7895 Similarly, the intelligent Nakula, and the invincible Sahadeva, and Dhrishtadyumna with his own division, and Virata, and the ruler of the Salwas, with a large force, proceeded against Drona in battle.
Mbh.7.152.7992 Then the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and Drupada and Virata, and the Kaikeyas, and Yudhishthira also, felt great joy.
Mbh.7.153.8033 And he pierced Bhimasena with nine arrows and Nakula with five, and Sahadeva with eight, and Sikhandin with a hundred.
Mbh.7.155.8338 Dhrishtadyumna, and Sikhandin and Janamejaya, the son of Durmuksha and Chandrasen, and Madrasen, and Kritavarman, Dhruva, and Dhara and Vasuchandra, and Sutejana, the sons of Drupada, and Drupada himself, conversant with high and mighty weapons, and the king of the Matsyas also, with his younger brothers, all resolutely struggling for their sake, and Gajanika, and Virabhadra, and Sudarsana, and Srutadhwaja, and Valanika, and Jayanika, and Jayaprya, and Vijaya and Labhalaksha, and Jayaswa, and Kamaratha, and the handsome brothers of Virata, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the five sons of Draupadi, and the Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, are all fighting for the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.162.8763 Karna, the son of Vikartana, O king, resisted that mighty car-warrior, viz, Pandu's son, Sahadeva, as the letter advanced for getting at Drona.
Mbh.7.164.8872 SECTION CLXVI Sanjaya said, Karna, the son of Vikartana O king, resisted the mighty car-warrior Sahadeva in that battle, who advanced from desire of getting at Drona.
Mbh.7.164.8873 Piercing the son of Radha with nine shafts, Sahadeva once more pierced that warrior with nine straight arrows.
Mbh.7.164.8874 Karna then pierced Sahadeva in return with a hundred straight shafts, and displaying great lightness in hand, cut off the latter's stringed bow.
Mbh.7.164.8878 This carless Sahadeva then took up a sword and a shield.
Mbh.7.164.8880 Then the mighty Sahadeva, in that encounter, sped towards the car of Vikartana's son, a heavy and terrible mace decked with gold.
Mbh.7.164.8881 Karna, then with his shafts, quickly cut off that mace which hurled by Sahadeva, coursed towards him impetuously, and caused it to fall down on the earth.
Mbh.7.164.8882 Beholding his mace cut off, Sahadeva quickly hurled a dart at Karna.
Mbh.7.164.8886 When that wheel had been cut off, Sahadeva, O sire, aiming at Karna, hurled at him the shafts of his car, the traces of his steeds, the yokes of his cars, the limbs of elephants and steeds and dead human bodies.
Mbh.7.164.8888 Seeing himself deprived of all weapons, Madri's son, Sahadeva, struck by Karna with many shafts, left the battle.
Mbh.7.164.8889 Pursuing him for a while, the son of Radha, O bull of Bharata's race, smilingly addressed Sahadeva and said these cruel words, Do not, O hero, fight in battle with those that are superior to thee.
Mbh.7.164.8896 Sahadeva, then, heartless and afflicted with arrows, and pierced with the wordy darts of Karna, no longer cherished any love for life.
Mbh.7.168.9103 O uncle, slay those great bowmen, viz, the two Krishnas, and Yudhishtira, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Bhima, the son of Pandu My hope of victory resteth on thee, like that of the gods on their chief Indra.
Mbh.7.169.9162 Then Dhrishtadyumna and Sikhandin blew their large conchs, as also the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and Vrikodara, the son of Pandu.
Mbh.7.175.9538 Let Nakula and Sahadeva and the valiant Yuyudhana, O son of Pandu, at thy command, slay the other Rakshasas!
Mbh.7.176.9560 Meanwhile, the mighty car-warrior Yuyudhana, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, pierced with keen shafts the warriors of Alayudha, those terrible-looking and heroic Rakshasas, armed with bows.
Mbh.7.176.9564 Then those warriors also, viz, Nakula and Sahadeva and the mighty car-warrior, Satyaki, having slain the Rakshasas, proceeded to that place where the Suta's son was.
Mbh.7.181.9879 My affection for Ghatotkacha, that prince of the Rakshasas is twice that, O Janardana, which I naturally bear towards Sahadeva.
Mbh.7.182.9938 Let Nakula and Sahadeva and the sons of Draupadi and the Prabhadrakas, and Drupada and Virata with their sons and brothers, and Satyaki and the Kaikeyas and the Pandavas and Dhananjaya, rush with speed against Bharadwaja's son, from desire of slaying him.
Mbh.7.185.10174 Then Duryodhana, Karna, Drona and Duhsasana, these four Kauravas warriors engaged in battle with four of the Pandava warriors, Duryodhana and his brothers, encountered the twins Nakula and Sahadeva.
Mbh.7.186.10190 SECTION CLXXXVIII Sanjaya said, Then Duhsasana, filled with wrath, rushed against Sahadeva, causing the earth to tremble with the fierce speed of his car, O Madri's son, however, that crusher of foes, with a broad-headed arrow, quickly cut of the head, decked with the head-gear of his rushing antagonist's driver.
Mbh.7.186.10191 From the celerity with which that act was accomplished by Sahadeva, neither Duhsasana nor any of the troops knew that the driver's head had been cut off.
Mbh.7.186.10196 Then Sahadeva pierced those steeds with keen shafts.
Mbh.7.187.10265 Those bulls among men, however, viz, the twins, Nakula and Sahadeva following in the wake of Dhrishtadyumna who was thus proceeding like a blazing fire towards Drona, began to protect him.
Mbh.7.187.10273 Then Dhrishtadyumna, exceedingly quick in the use of weapons, beholding those brave and mighty car warriors of thy army checked by the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, proceeded towards Drona.
Mbh.7.187.10332 They were Bhimasena and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva.
Mbh.7.193.10709 Neither Vibhatsu, nor Janardana, nor Bhimasena, nor Nakula, nor Sahadeva, nor king Yudhishthira, nor Prishata's wicked-souled son Dhrishtadyumna, nor Sikhandin, nor Satyaki, O Kauravya, knoweth that weapon which I have, along with the mantras, for hurting and withdrawing it.
Mbh.7.196.10965 Then Sahadeva, O king, jumping down from his own car, addressed Satyaki, thus held fast by the strong arms of Bhima, in these words, O tiger among men, O thou of Madhu's race, we have no friends dearer to us than the Andhakas, the Vrishnis and the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.196.10975 While the scion of Sini, O sire, was thus being pacified by Sahadeva, the son of the Panchala king, smiling, said these words, Release Sini's grandson, O Bhima who is so proud of his prowess in battle.
Mbh.8.5.126 Shalya's son of great prowess, O sire, Rukmaratha, hath, O king, been slain in battle by Sahadeva although the former happened to be the latter's brother, having been the son of the latter's maternal uncle.
Mbh.8.9.310 He unto whom in exchange for his earrings, Purandara had given that foe slaying, gold-decked, and celestial dart of the splendour of lightning, he who had, lying within his quiver amid sandal-dust, that snake-mouthed celestial arrow decked with gold, equipped with goodly wings, and capable of slaying all foes, he who, disregarding those heroic and mighty car-warriors having Bhishma and Drona at their head, had acquired from Jamadagni's son the terrible brahmastra, that mighty-armed one, who, having seen the warriors with Drona at their head afflicted with arrows and turn away from the field, had cut off with his keen shafts the bow of Subhadra's son, he who, having in a trice deprived the invincible Bhimasena endued with the might of elephants and the speed of the wind, of his car, had laughed at him, he who, having vanquished Sahadeva by means of his straight shafts and made him carless, slew him not from compassion and considerations of virtue, he who, with Shakra's dart, slew that prince of rakshasas, Ghatotkaca, who from desire of victory, had invoked a kinds of illusions, he whose feats in battle, filling Dhananjaya with fear, had made the latter for such a long period avoid a single combat with him, alas, how could that hero be slain in battle?
Mbh.8.11.442 Nakula and Sahadeva were at the rear of king Yudhishthira the just.
Mbh.8.13.512 Srutakirti encountered Shalya, and Madri's son, the valiant Sahadeva, O king, encountered thy son Duhshasana.
Mbh.8.22.922 Then Nakula and Sahadeva, and the sons of Draupadi, and the Prabhadrakas, and Satyaki, and Shikhandi, and Chekitana endued with great energy, all those heroes, drenched those elephants from every side with their weapons, like the clouds drenching the hills with their showers.
Mbh.8.22.928 Meanwhile Sahadeva, with three shafts shot with great care, struck the elephant of Pundra, as it advanced against him like a moving mountain, depriving it of its standard and driver and armour and life.
Mbh.8.22.929 Having thus cut off that elephant, Sahadeva proceeded against the chief of the Angas.
Mbh.8.22.930 Nakula, however, causing Sahadeva to desist, himself afflicted the ruler of the Angas with three long shafts, each resembling the rod of Yama, and his foe's elephant with a hundred arrows.
Mbh.8.22.940 Then Sahadeva, with four and sixty impetuous arrows, quickly slew eight of those huge elephants which fell down with their riders.
Mbh.8.23.946 SECTION Sanjaya said, While Sahadeva, filled with rage, was thus blasting thy host, Duhshasana, O great king, proceeded against him, the brother against the brother.
Mbh.8.23.949 Then Sahadeva, O king, having first pierced thy son with an arrow, pierced him again with seventy arrows, and then his driver with three.
Mbh.8.23.950 Then Duhshasana, O monarch, having cut off Sahadeva's bow in that great battle, pierced Sahadeva himself with three and seventy arrows in the arms and the chest.
Mbh.8.23.951 Then Sahadeva filled with rage, took up a sword, in that dreadful conflict, and whirling, hurled it quickly towards the car of thy son.
Mbh.8.23.953 Then the valiant Sahadeva taking up another bow, shot a deadly shaft at Duhshasana.
Mbh.8.23.957 Sahadeva, however, with the greatest ease, cut off, with his keen shafts, that sword as it coursed towards him, and caused it to fall down in that battle.
Mbh.8.23.958 Then, O Bharata, thy son, in that dreadful battle, quickly sped four and sixty shafts at the car of Sahadeva.
Mbh.8.23.959 Sahadeva, however, O king, cut off every one of those numerous arrows as they coursed with great impetuosity towards him, with five shafts of his.
Mbh.8.23.960 Checking then those mighty shafts sped by thy son, Sahadeva, in that battle, sped a large number of arrows at his foe.
Mbh.8.23.962 Then Duhshasana, O king, having pierced Sahadeva in that battle, struck the latter's driver with nine arrows.
Mbh.8.23.963 The valiant Sahadeva then, O monarch, filled with rage, fixed on his bow-string a terrible shaft resembling the Destroyer himself and forcibly drawing the bow, he sped that shaft at thy son.
Mbh.8.46.2537 Yudhishthira said, With that view, do thou proceed against the son of Radha, and let Bhimasena proceed against Suyodhana, Nakula against Virshasena, Sahadeva against the son of Subala, Satanika against Duhshasana, that bull amongst the Sinis, viz, Satyaki, against the son of Hridika, and Pandya against the son of Drona.
Mbh.8.46.2598 There stand those two tigers among men, the twin Ashvinis, the two uterine brothers Nakula and Sahadeva, both invincible in battle.
Mbh.8.48.2650 Then Dhrishtadyumna, Satyaki, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Vrikodara, Janamejaya, and Shikhandi, and many foremost warriors among the Prabhadrakas, and many amongst the Cedis, the Kaikayas, and the Pancalas, the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the Matsyas, all clad in mail, rushed fiercely upon Radha's son, skilled in smiting, from desire of slaying him.
Mbh.8.48.2672 Sushena also, deprived of his senses in rage, took up another bow and pierced Nakula with sixty arrows and Sahadeva with seven.
Mbh.8.48.2680 The mighty car-warrior Vrishasena then, riding on another vehicle, pierced the five sons of Draupadi with seventy and Yuyudhana with five, and Bhimasena with four and sixty, and Sahadeva with five, and Nakula with thirty, and Satanika with seven arrows, and Shikhandi with ten, and king Yudhishthira with a hundred.
Mbh.8.48.2686 And Bhimasena pierced him with four and sixty arrows, and Sahadeva with seven.
Mbh.8.49.2739 Satyaki and Chekitana and Yuyutsu and Shikhandi and the sons of Draupadi and the Prabhadrakas, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva and Bhimasena and Shishupala and the Karushas, Matsyas, the Suras, the Kaikayas, the Kasis and the Kosalas, all these brave heroes, endued with great activity, assailed Vasusena.
Mbh.8.54.3062 Thy son Duryodhana, shooting a shower of arrows, received and checked Nakula and Sahadeva, those two great car-warriors endued with celerity.
Mbh.8.56.3149 Of immeasurable soul, thy son next, O ruler of men, cut off the golden standard of Sahadeva with a razor-faced shaft.
Mbh.8.56.3150 Filled with wrath, Nakula then, O king, struck thy son with three and seventy arrows in that battle, and Sahadeva struck him with five.
Mbh.8.56.3204 And Shikhandi, and Sahadeva, and Nakula, and Nakula's son, and Janamejaya, and the grandson of Sini, and innumerable Prabhadrakas, all endued with immeasurable energy, advancing with Dhrishtadyumna in their van, looked magnificent as they struck Karna with shafts and diverse weapons.
Mbh.8.59.3431 Meanwhile, the heroic Sahadeva, O ruler of men, bore away on his car the son of Prishata, that scorcher of foes.
Mbh.8.61.3558 Sahadeva, O king, in that battle, proceeded against Uluka.
Mbh.8.61.3590 The angry Uluka was held in check by Sahadeva.
Mbh.8.61.3591 Having slain his four steeds, the valiant Sahadeva then despatched his foe's driver to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.8.62.3636 Indeed, Nakula and Sahadeva and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata, surrounded by a full Akshauhini of troops, thus proceeded towards Yudhishthira.
Mbh.8.62.3641 The high-souled Sahadeva, however, quickly approaching the spot where Duryodhana was, and invoking without loss of time a celestial weapon, pierced Duryodhana with twenty arrows.
Mbh.8.62.3642 Thus pierced by Sahadeva, the Kuru king, covered with blood, looked beautiful, like a huge elephant of split temples.
Mbh.8.63.3668 Breaking that car-force into many parts by means of his arrows, Karna, singly and riding on that same car of his, pursued Yudhishthira, who then, exceedingly mangled with arrows and almost insensible, was proceeding slowly for reaching the Pandava encampment with Nakula and Sahadeva on his two sides.
Mbh.8.63.3672 Then Nakula and Sahadeva, both shooting showers of shafts with great care, covered the son of Radha therewith.
Mbh.8.63.3677 Those two steedless and carless sons of Pandu, those two brothers, thereupon ascended the car of Sahadeva.
Mbh.8.63.3702 After Karna had gone away, Kunti's son Yudhishthira retreated, borne, O sire, by the fleet steeds of Sahadeva.
Mbh.8.63.3706 Riding another car, Nakula, that bull among car-warriors, and Sahadeva of great energy, those two brothers, those two crushers of foes, both endued with great might, then proceeded towards Bhima, borne by steeds of the utmost fleetness.
Mbh.8.66.3832 I was also made steedless and carless by him in the very sight of Yuyudhana, of Dhrishtadyumna, of the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, of the heroic Shikhandi, as also in the very sight of the sons of Draupadi, and all the Pancalas!
Mbh.8.70.4127 Thou hadst heard of the numerous faults and the great sinfulness of dice that Sahadeva spoke about.
Mbh.8.73.4457 Know, O Partha, that is prevailing over the Pancalas, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandi, and the sons of Dhrishtadyumna, and Satanika, the son of Nakula, and Nakula himself, and Sahadeva, and Durmukha, and Janamejaya, and Sudharman, and Satyaki!
Mbh.8.75.4551 The great Srinjaya car-warrior Uttamauja was engaged with Karna's son Sushena, while Sahadeva rushed against Shakuni, the king of the Gandharas, like a hungry lion against a mighty bull.
Mbh.8.78.4735 Indeed, Shikhandi, and Bhima, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Satyaki, surrounded the son of Radha, pouring showers of arrows upon him, from desire of despatching him to the other world.
Mbh.8.78.4737 Shikhandi struck him with five and twenty shafts, and Dhrishtadyumna struck him with seven, and the sons of Draupadi with four and sixty, and Sahadeva with seven, and Nakula with a hundred, in that battle.
Mbh.8.78.4743 With a broad-headed arrow, O sire, he next cut off the standard of Sahadeva, and with three other arrows, that chastiser of foes afflicted Sahadeva's driver.
Mbh.8.79.4811 Learning that king Yudhishthira the just hath been exceedingly mangled and made carless by thee, and seeing the plight of Shikhandi, and Satyaki, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Yudhamanyu, and Uttamauja, and the brothers, Nakula and Sahadeva, that scorcher of foes, Partha, advanceth impetuously on a single car against thee.
Mbh.8.93.5951 The twins Nakula and Sahadeva of great fame, and Satyaki, having pursued with great speed the king of the Gandharvas who was possessed of lightness of hands in the use of weapons, re-appeared amid the Pandava ranks.
Mbh.8.96.6145 Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Vrikodara the son of Pandu, and Satyaki, O king, that foremost of car-warriors among the Vrishnis, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Shikhandi, and others among the Pandus, the Pancalas, and the Srinjayas, worshipped the son of Kunti at the slaughter of the Suta's son.
Mbh.9.11.672 Then Vrikodara, filled with wrath, pierced Shalya with seven arrows, and Sahadeva pierced him with five, and Nakula with ten.
Mbh.9.11.683 The ruler of the Madras then slew the steeds of Sahadeva before his eyes.
Mbh.9.11.684 Then Sahadeva slew Shalya's son with his sword.
Mbh.9.13.775 Nakula pierced him with five arrows, and Sahadeva with seven; the latter then once more pierced him with as many.
Mbh.9.13.777 Then cutting off with a broad-headed arrow the bow, with shaft fixed on the string of Sahadeva, he pierced Sahadeva himself, in that battle, with three and seventy shafts.
Mbh.9.13.778 Sahadeva then, stringing another bow, pierced his maternal uncle of great splendour with five shafts that resembled snakes of virulent poison or blazing fire.
Mbh.9.13.789 Bhimasena sped at him a cloth-yard shaft that looked like a blazing snake; Nakula hurled at him a dart, Sahadeva an excellent mace, and the son of Dharma a Sataghni impelled by the desire of despatching him.
Mbh.9.13.793 He then resisted with clouds of shafts the terrible dart, equipped with a golden handle, that Nakula had sped at him and the mace also that Sahadeva had thrown.
Mbh.9.13.801 Nakula and Sahadeva and Satyaki of great might, encompassing Shalya, shot their arrows at him from every side.
Mbh.9.15.871 With patience and great strength, O monarch, the king of the Madras at the same time fought with the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, each of whom resembled the Destroyer himself in prowess.
Mbh.9.15.876 Then king Yudhishthira, and Bhimasena, and Satyaki, and Sahadeva, the son of Madri, all rushed against the ruler of the Madras.
Mbh.9.15.878 Piercing Yudhishthira with three arrows and Bhima with seven, Shalya pierced Satyaki with a hundred arrows in that battle and Sahadeva with three.
Mbh.9.15.882 Then Yudhishthira and Sahadeva, O sire, each pierced the ruler of the Madras with ten arrows in the chest.
Mbh.9.16.908 Sahadeva checked Shakuni with all his forces.
Mbh.9.17.996 Piercing Satyaki with ten arrows and Bhima with three and Sahadeva with as many, he afflicted Yudhishthira greatly.
Mbh.9.17.1028 Sahadeva, the son of Madri, also did the same.
Mbh.9.21.1327 He pierced Yudhishthira, O bull of Bharata's race, with a hundred arrows, and Bhimasena with seventy, and Sahadeva with seven.
Mbh.9.21.1329 With a broad-headed arrow, he then, O sire, cut off the bow of Sahadeva.
Mbh.9.21.1347 Meanwhile, the valiant Sahadeva bore away the heroic and vanquished king on his car from that battle.
Mbh.9.21.1419 Then Yudhishthira, beholding from a near point his own army routed, coolly urged the mighty Sahadeva, saying, Yonder the son of Subala, afflicting our rear, stayeth, clad in mail!
Mbh.9.21.1426 At this, elephants ridden by combatants armed with the bow, and horses, and the valiant Sahadeva, and foot-soldiers, and the sons of Draupadi all rushed against Shakuni difficult of defeat in battle.
Mbh.9.21.1454 Sahadeva also, when that dusty cloud arose, proceeded alone to where king Yudhishthira was.
Mbh.9.25.1675 Both Nakula and Sahadeva, O Bharata, are fatigued, having fought with the wretched Dhartarashtras and their followers!
Mbh.9.25.1711 Beholding that force within which Duryodhana was, three mighty car-warriors prepared themselves for assailing it, for Bhimasena and Arjuna and Sahadeva, O sire, together proceeded against it with loud leonine roars from desire of slaying Duryodhana.
Mbh.9.25.1715 Thy son Duryodhana on horse-back proceeded against Sahadeva.
Mbh.9.25.1717 Thus assailed by thy son, Sahadeva sat down on the terrace of his car, all his limbs bathed in blood and himself sighing like a snake.
Mbh.9.25.1718 Regaining his senses then, O king, Sahadeva, filled with rage, covered Duryodhana with keen arrows.
Mbh.9.26.1744 SECTION Sanjaya said, During the progress of that battle which was so destructive of men and steeds and elephants, Subala's son, Shakuni, O king, rushed against Sahadeva.
Mbh.9.26.1745 The valiant Sahadeva, as Shakuni rushed quickly towards him, sped showers of swift arrows at that warrior as numerous as a flight of insects.
Mbh.9.26.1746 At that time, Uluka also encountered Bhima and pierced him with ten arrows, Shakuni, meanwhile, O monarch, having pierced Bhima with three arrows, covered Sahadeva with ninety.
Mbh.9.26.1749 Then Bhima, filled with rage, and Sahadeva of great valour, both endued with great might, careered in that battle, making an immense carnage.
Mbh.9.26.1758 Meanwhile, the heroic and valiant son of Subala's son very forcibly struck Sahadeva on the head with a lance.
Mbh.9.26.1759 Exceedingly agitated, O monarch, in consequence of the blow, Sahadeva sat down on the terrace of his car.
Mbh.9.26.1760 Beholding Sahadeva in that plight, the valiant Bhima, filled with rage, O Bharata, held the whole Kuru army in check.
Mbh.9.26.1771 Comforted a little, the invincible Sahadeva, O monarch, pierced Shakuni with ten arrows and his steeds with three.
Mbh.9.26.1774 Uluka also, O king, desirous of rescuing his sire in that engagement, pierced Bhima with seven arrows and Sahadeva with seventy.
Mbh.9.26.1776 Struck by Bhimasena with shafts steeped in oil, the Kauravas, filled with rage in that battle, covered Sahadeva with showers of arrows like lightning-charged clouds pouring rain on a mountain-breast.
Mbh.9.26.1777 The heroic and valiant Sahadeva then, O monarch, cut off, with a broad-headed arrow, the head of Uluka as the latter advanced against him.
Mbh.9.26.1778 Slain by Sahadeva, Uluka, gladdening the Pandavas in that battle, fell down on the earth from his car, all his limbs bathed in blood.
Mbh.9.26.1780 Having reflected for a moment with tearful eyes, Shakuni, breathing heavily, approached Sahadeva and pierced him with three arrows.
Mbh.9.26.1781 Baffling those arrows sped by Subala's son with showers of shafts, the valiant Sahadeva, O monarch, cut off his antagonist's bow in that battle.
Mbh.9.26.1782 Seeing his bow cut off, O king, Shakuni, the son of Subala, took up a formidable scimitar and hurled it at Sahadeva.
Mbh.9.26.1784 Beholding his sword cut in twain, Shakuni took up a formidable mace and hurled it at Sahadeva.
Mbh.9.26.1787 With the greatest ease Sahadeva, in that encounter, cut off, with his gold-decked shafts, into three fragments, that dart as it coursed swiftly towards him.
Mbh.9.26.1794 Then Sahadeva came upon Subala's son as the latter, who was still expectant of victory, was flying away, protected by the excellent cavalry of the Gandharas.
Mbh.9.26.1795 Recollecting, O king, that Shakuni, who had fallen to his share, was still alive, Sahadeva, on his car adorned with gold, pursued that warrior.
Mbh.9.26.1796 Stringing his formidable bow and drawing it with great force, Sahadeva, filled with rage, pursued the son of Subala and vigorously struck him with many shafts equipped with vulturine feathers and whetted on stone, even like a person striking a mighty elephant with pointed lances.
Mbh.9.26.1797 Endued with great energy of mind, Sahadeva, having afflicted his foe thus, addressed him, as if for calling back to mind his past misdeeds, in these words, Adhering to the duties of a Kshatriya, fight with me and be a man!
Mbh.9.26.1803 Saying these words, O monarch, Sahadeva of great strength, that tiger among men, filled with rage, rushed impetuously against Shakuni.
Mbh.9.26.1804 Approaching his enemy, the invincible Sahadeva, that foremost of warriors, forcibly drawing his bow and as if burning his foe with wrath, pierced Shakuni with ten arrows and his steeds with four.
Mbh.9.26.1806 His standard and bow and umbrella thus cut off by Sahadeva, Subala's son was pierced with many arrows in all his vital limbs.
Mbh.9.26.1807 Once again, O monarch, the valiant Sahadeva sped at Shakuni an irresistible shower of arrows.
Mbh.9.26.1808 Filled with rage, the son of Subala then, single-handed, rushed with speed against Sahadeva in that encounter, desirous of slaying the latter with a lance adorned with gold.
Mbh.9.26.1810 Endued with great activity, the heroic Sahadeva then, with a broad-headed arrow, made of hard iron, equipped with wings of gold, capable of penetrating every armour, and sped with great force and care, cut off from his trunk his enemy's head.
Mbh.9.26.1817 All of them, with glad hearts, worshipped Sahadeva, and said, By good luck, O hero, Shakuni of wicked soul, that man of evil course, hath, with his son, been slain by thee
Mbh.9.27.1820 Resolved to aid Sahadeva in his victory, Arjuna, as also Bhimasena possessed of great energy and resembling an angry snake of virulent poison in aspect, received those warriors.
Mbh.9.27.1821 With his Gandiva, Dhananjaya baffled the purpose of those warriors, who, armed with darts and swords and lances, desired to slay Sahadeva.
Mbh.9.30.2236 As regards myself, I am willing to fight either Sahadeva, or Bhima, or Nakula, or Phalguna, or thee today, O bull of Bharata's race!
Mbh.9.31.2247 If, indeed, O Yudhishthira, Duryodhana select thee for battle, or Arjuna, or Nakula, or Sahadeva what will be the consequence?
Mbh.9.31.2262 Neither thou nor Bhima, nor Nakula nor Sahadeva, nor Phalguna, is capable of vanquishing Duryodhana in fair fight!
Mbh.11.14.578 In this matter the slightest blame cannot attach to Vibhatsu or to Prithas son Vrikodara, or to Nakula or Sahadeva, or to Yudhishthira himself.
Mbh.11.18.793 With Sahadeva and Nakula and Arjuna, O lady, enter our household now
Mbh.11.24.985 There the mighty Shakuni, the chief of gandharvas, of prowess incapable of being baffled, hath been slain by Sahadeva, the maternal uncle by the sisters son!
Mbh.12.13.523 SECTION XIII Sahadeva said, By casting off all external objects only, O Bharata, one does not attain to success.
Mbh.12.37.2010 The two heroic sons of Madri, viz, Nakula and Sahadeva, took up two yak-tails white as the rays of the moon and adorned with gems for fanning the king.
Mbh.12.40.2101 Upon a white throne of ivory, decked with gold, sat Pritha with Sahadeva and Nakula.
Mbh.12.41.2140 And he appointed Sahadeva to always remain by his side, for the king thought, O monarch, that he should under all circumstances be protected by that brother of his.
Mbh.12.44.2210 The king gave it unto Sahadeva who was ever employed in doing what was agreeable to him.
Mbh.12.44.2211 Obtaining it, Sahadeva became delighted as the Lord of treasures upon obtaining Kailasa.
Mbh.12.166.9969 Listen, however, now to these two viz, Nakula and Sahadeva who are about to speak'
Mbh.12.166.9970 Vaisampayana continued, After Arjuna had ceased, the two sons of Madri, viz, Nakula and Sahadeva, said these words of high import'
Mbh.12.166.9971 Nakula and Sahadeva said, Sitting or lying, walking and standing, one should strive after the acquisition of Wealth even by the most vigorous of means.
Mbh.13.2.180 For this reason Agni has always been present in the kingdom of Mahismati to this day, and was seen by Sahadeva in course of his conquering expedition to the south.
Mbh.14.14.392 And O monarch, that lord of men exhorted by the worshipful Viswarasraba himself, and by Dwaipayana Vyasa, Krishna Devasthana, Narada, Bhima, Nakula, Krishna Draupadi, Sahadeva, and the sharpwitted Vijaya, as well as by other great men, and Brahmanas versed in the Sastras, became relieved of all mental affliction and sorrow arising from the death of his dear relations.
Mbh.14.52.2334 Do thou also think of me daily as also of Bhima, that foremost of mighty men, and of Phalguna and Nakula and Sahadeva, O giver of honours.
Mbh.14.60.2774 After the fall of Salya, the high-souled Sahadeva of immeasurable prowess slew Sakuni, the man who had brought about the quarrel between the Pandavas and the Kurus.
Mbh.14.61.2846 Having comforted her in this way, Kunti, conversant with every duty, O perpetuator of Yadu's race, casting off her grief, O irresistible one, made arrangements for Abhimanyu's obsequial rites, with the acquiescence of king Yudhishthira and Bhima, and the twins viz, Nakula and Sahadeva who in prowess resembled Yama himself.
Mbh.14.66.2988 It behoveth thee, O Madhava, to rescue Uttara and Subhadra and Draupadi and myself, and Dharma's son Yudhishthira, and Bhima and Phalguna, and Nakula, and the irresistible Sahadeva.
Mbh.14.72.3197 Possessed of great intelligence and fame, Sahadeva will, O thou of Kuru's race, duly attend to all the relatives that have been invited to thy capital'
Mbh.14.72.3205 With the permission of king Dhritarashtra, Yudhishthira then set Sahadeva, that foremost of warriors, to wait upon all the invited guests
Mbh.14.82.3665 Beholding him arrived within his dominion, O monarch, the heroic son of Sahadeva, observant of Kshatriya duties, challenged him to battle.
Mbh.14.82.3704 Thus addressed by him, the son of Sahadeva said, So be it, and then duly worshipped that horse as also Phalguna, that foremost of warriors.
Mbh.14.85.3776 Meanwhile, king Yudhishthira the just, seeing that the twelfth day of the lighted fortnight in the month of Magha had come, and noticing also that the constellation was favourable, summoned all his brothers, viz, Bhima and Nakula and Sahadeva.
Mbh.15.16.659 Kunti said, O king, never show any disregard for Sahadeva.
Mbh.15.16.668 Thou shouldst look after Bhimasena and Arjuna and Nakula and Sahadeva.
Mbh.15.17.708 I instilled courage into your hearts in order that Nakula and Sahadeva, who are always devoted to their seniors, might not be weakened and rendered cheerless by hunger.
Mbh.15.22.882 Then Sahadeva, bowing down to the king, said, I see thy heart to be set upon seeing our sire.
Mbh.15.22.889 Hearing these words of Sahadeva, queen Draupadi, that foremost of all women duly honouring the king said, with proper salutations, Alas, when shall I see queen Pritha, if, indeed, she be yet alive.
Mbh.15.24.936 Then Sahadeva ran with speed towards the spot where Pritha was.
Mbh.15.36.1497 Hearing these words, that lord of battle, the mighty-armed Sahadeva, with eyes bathed in tears, addressed Yudhishthira, saying, O chief of Bharata's race, I dare not leave my mother.
Mbh.15.36.1511 By these and diverse other speeches of Kunti, the minds of Sahadeva and king Yudhishthira were composed.
Mbh.15.38.1632 Among all her sons, Sahadeva, was her darling.
Mbh.16.7.248 The king and Bhimasena and Sahadeva and Nakula and Yajnaseni, numbering the sixth, are of the same mind with myself in this matter.
Mbh.17.2.85 Then Sahadeva of great learning fell down on the Earth.
Mbh.17.2.89 Vaishampayana continued: Having said this, the king proceeded, leaving Sahadeva there.
Mbh.17.2.91 Beholding both Krishna and the Pandava Sahadeva fallen down, the brave Nakula, whose love for kinsmen was very great, fell down himself.
Mbh.18.2.101 I am Sahadeva!
Mbh.18.4.203 In place belonging to the Ashvinis, the delighter of the Kurus beheld Nakula and Sahadeva, each blazing with his own effulgence.
