MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.4.21.859 That we have been deprived of our kingdom, that I have not yet slain the Kurus, that I have not yet taken the heads of Suyodhana and Karna, and Suvala's son Sakuni, and the wicked Duhsasana, these acts and omissions, O lady, are consuming every limb of mine.
Mbh.4.50.1945 This thy wise uncle, fully conversant with the duties of the Kshatriya order, this deceitful gambler Sakuni, the prince of Gandhara, let him fight now!
Mbh.5.2.55 And although the dice constantly went against him, he would still have Sakuni alone for his opponent.
Mbh.5.2.56 Competing with Sakuni in the play, he sustained a crushing defeat.
Mbh.5.2.57 For this, no blame can attach to Sakuni.
Mbh.5.3.85 We shall slay Dhritarashtra's son and Sakuni and Karna in battle, and place the Pandava on the throne.
Mbh.5.4.92 And so will Bhishma and Drona from imbecility, and Karna and Sakuni from folly.
Mbh.5.6.146 Sakuni advisedly challenged Yudhishthira to a gambling match although the latter was unskilled in gambling while the former was an adept in it.
Mbh.5.21.887 On behalf of Duryodhana, Sakuni formerly won in game of dice.
Mbh.5.26.1096 They are Dussasana, and Sakuni the son of Suvala, and Karna the Suta's son!
Mbh.5.29.1289 And Sakuni, the king of the Gandhara land, spoke to Yudhishthira at the time of the game of dice the following words by way of a wily trick, Nakula hath been won by me from you, what else have you got?
Mbh.5.29.1299 Duryodhana is a big tree of evil passions; Karna is its trunk; Sakuni is its branches; Dussasana forms its abundant blossoms and fruits; while the wise king Dhritarashtra is its toots.
Mbh.5.30.1354 Thou must also, O sire, enquire about the welfare of Sakuni, the king of the Gandharas, that native of the hilly country, who is unrivalled in deceitful games at dice, who enhances the pride of Dhritarashtra's son, and whose understanding naturally leads to falsehood.
Mbh.5.35.1793 Reposing the care of thy kingdom on Duryodhana, on Sakuni, on foolish Dussasana, and on Karna, how canst thou hope for prosperity?
Mbh.5.47.2658 And Dussasana and Chitrasena, and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and Durmukha and Dussaha, Karna and Uluka and Vivingsati, these also, with Duryodhana, the wrathful king of the Kurus, at their head, entered that hall, O monarch, like the celestials forming the train of Sakra himself.
Mbh.5.49.2821 Thou art alone in holding as true the opinion, O bull of the Bharata race, only three persons, viz, Karna, a low-born Suta's son cursed by Rama, Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and thy mean and sinful brother Dussasana'
Mbh.5.58.3217 Alas, thou dost not seek it of thy own will, but it is Karna and the evil-minded Dussasana and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, that are leading thee to it'
Mbh.5.66.3430 O Sanjaya, our grandsire, the son of Santanu, and Dhritarashtra, and Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and king Vahlika, and Drona's son, and Somadatta, and Sakuni the son of Suvala; and Dussasana, and Sala, and Purumitra, and Vivingsati; Vikarna, and Chitrasena, and king Jayatsena, and Vinda and Anuvinda, the two chiefs of Avanti, and Bhurisravas, and king Bhagadatta, and king Jarasandha and other rulers of the earth, assembled there to fight for the good of the Kauravas, are all on the eve of death.
Mbh.5.79.3851 Moreover, his sinful inclinations are fed by his counsellors Sakuni and Karna and his brother Dussasana.
Mbh.5.91.4280 And he also beheld there Dussasana and Karna and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, seated on their respective seats by the side of Duryodhana.
Mbh.5.94.4397 And while the unvanquished Krishna of Dasarha's race was still engaged in his morning devotions, Duryodhana and Suvala's son Sakuni came to him and said, Dhritarashtra is seated in his court, with all the Kurus headed by Bhishma and with all the kings of the earth.
Mbh.5.94.4404 And Duryodhana and Suvala's son Sakuni also, on one car followed Krishna, that chastiser of foes.
Mbh.5.94.4436 And Sakuni, the king of Gandhara, surrounded by the chiefs of his country, sat there, O king, with his son beside him.
Mbh.5.127.5611 In the game at dice, O slayer of Madhu, that was joyfully accepted by them, the Pandavas were vanquished and their kingdom was won by Sakuni.
Mbh.5.128.5641 O sire, how could those virtuous, honest, and superior kinsmen of thine otherwise engage in such a wicked act with the deceitful Sakuni?
Mbh.5.128.5683 Binding in the same way Duryodhana and Karna and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and Dussasana, make them over to the Pandavas.
Mbh.5.130.5759 And wending away from the court, the Kuru prince began to consult with Suvala's royal son, Sakuni, most clever in dice.
Mbh.5.130.5760 And this was the resolution which Duryodhana and Karna and Suvala's son Sakuni, with Dussasana as their fourth, arrived at, This Janardana, quick in action, seeketh, with the king Dhritarashtra and Santanu's son, to seize us first.
Mbh.5.143.6382 The destruction of the whole earth that is at hand for its cause, Sakuni, and myself, and Dussasana, and king Duryodhana, the son of Dhritarashtra.
Mbh.5.154.6841 Vaisampayana said, When he of Dasarha's race had departed from the Kuru court, king Duryodhana, addressing Karna and Dussasana and Sakuni, said these words, Kesava hath gone to the sons of Pritha, without having been able to achieve his object.
Mbh.5.155.6866 Thou, O Vasudeva, art acquainted with the views of Duryodhana, Karna, and Sakuni, the son of Suvala.
Mbh.5.155.6879 Indeed, all of them follow Duryodhana, except Vidura, O thou of unfading glory, Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and Karna, and Dussasana, all equally foolish, gave foolish and vindictive Duryodhana much improper advice regarding thee.
Mbh.5.156.6932 And placing an Akshauhini of troops under each of those best of men, viz, Kripa, Drona, Salya, Jayadratha, the king of the Sindhus, Sudakshina the ruler of the Kamvojas, Kritavarman, Drona's son Aswatthaman, Karna, Bhurisravas, Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and the mighty Vahlika, the king used to bring them daily before him and at all hours, and speak to them.
Mbh.5.161.7086 And king Duryodhana having strongly posted his troops and paid homage to all the kings on his side and planted outposts and bodies of soldiers for the protection of warriors, summoned those rulers of men, viz, Karna and Dussasana and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and began O Bharata, to consult with them.
Mbh.5.161.7260 As regards my army, it is a veritable main with Saradwat's son as its large fish, Vivingsati as its huge snake, Bhishma as its current of immeasurable might, Drona as its unconquerable alligator, Karna and Salwa and Salya its fishes and whirlpools, the ruler of the Kamvojas its equine head emitting fire, Vrihadvala its fierce waves, Somadatta's son its whale, Yuyutsu and Durmarshana its waters, Bhagadatta its gale, Srutayus and Hridika's son its gulfs and bays, Dussasana its current, Sushena and Chitrayuda its water-elephants hippopotamus and crocodile, Jayadratha its submarine rock, Purumitra its depth, and Sakuni its shores!
Mbh.5.162.7323 As regards my army, it is a veritable ocean with Saradwat's son as its large fish; Vivingsati, its smaller fish; Vrihadvala its waves; Somadatta's son its whale; Bhishma its mighty force; Drona its unconquerable alligator; Karna and Salya, its fishes and whirlpools; Kamvoja its equine head vomiting fire, Jayadratha its submarine rock, Purumitra its depth, Durmarshana its waters, and Sakuni its shores!
Mbh.5.163.7345 Hear now the words which I say and which thou art to repeat unto the inaccessible Suyodhana in the midst of all the Kshatriyas and in the hearing of the Suta's son and the wicked-hearted Sakuni.
Mbh.5.163.7368 Slaying thee first before the very eyes of Sakuni, I shall then slay Sakuni himself in the sight of all bowmen'
Mbh.5.164.7475 And having listened to the words of the gambler's son, Duryodhana, that bull of Bharata's race, ordered Dussasana and Karna and Sakuni, O Bharata, and their own troops and the troops of the allies, and all the assembled kings, to be arrayed in divisions and be ready for battle before sunrise next morrow.
Mbh.5.165.7485 And he urged Sahadeva against Sakuni, and Chekitana against Sala, and the five sons of Draupadi against the Trigartas.
Mbh.5.168.7565 SECTION CLXVIII Bhishma said, This thy maternal uncle Sakuni is, O king, equal to a single Ratha.
Mbh.5.198.8829 Then came Aswatthaman, and Santanu's son Bhishma, and Jayadratha of the country of the Sindhu, and the kings of the southern and the western countries and of the hilly regions, and Sakuni, the ruler of the Gandharas, and all the chiefs of the eastern and the northern regions, and the Sakas, the Kiratas, and Yavanas, the Sivis and the Vasatis with their Maharathas at the heads of their respective divisions.
Mbh.6.9.490 On the other hand, it is Duryodhana that is covetous, and Sakuni the son of Suvala, as also many other Kshatriyas who are rulers of the provinces, who being covetous of this country are not able to bear one another.
Mbh.6.14.775 Duryodhana and Karna and the deceitful Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and Dussasana also, what did they say when Bhishma was slain?
Mbh.6.16.823 And Suvala's son Sakuni, and Salya, Jayadratha and the two princes of Avanti named Vinda and Anuvinda, and the Kekaya brothers, and Sudakshina the ruler of the Kamvojas and Srutayudha the ruler of the Kalingas, and king Jayatsena, and Vrihadvala the ruler of the Kosalas, and Kritavarman of Satwata's race, these ten tigers among men, endued with great bravery and possessing arms that looked like maces, these performers of sacrifices with plentiful gifts to Brahmanas, stood each at the head of an Akshauhini of troops.
Mbh.6.20.959 Him Sakuni, the ruler of the Gandharas, followed with mountaineers of Gandhara placed all around.
Mbh.6.45.2265 And Sakuni, endued with great prowess, rushed, O king, against Prativindhya of great prowess, like a lion against an infuriate elephant.
Mbh.6.45.2267 And Sakuni also, in that fierce conflict, pierced Prativindhya in return and mangled that warrior of great intelligence with straight arrows.
Mbh.6.51.2663 And the Gandharas, the Sindhusauviras, the Sivis and the Vasatis with all their combatants also, followed Bhishma, that ornament of battle, and Sakuni, with all his troops protected the son of Bharadwaja.
Mbh.6.52.2701 Then, O great king, Bhishma, the grandsire of the Kauravas, struck Arjuna with seventy-seven arrows and Drona struck him with five and twenty, and Kripa with fifty, and Duryodhana with four and sixty, and Salya with nine arrows; and Drona's son, that tiger among men, with sixty, and Vikarna with three arrows; and Saindhava with nine and Sakuni with five.
Mbh.6.57.3025 Then Bhishma and Drona, and Jayadratha, the ruler of the Sindhus and Purumitra, and Vikarna, and Sakuni the son of Suvala-these warriors invincible in battle and possessed of leonine prowess-staying in battle broke the ranks of the Pandavas.
Mbh.6.71.3815 And the Matsyas, O king, engaged with Duryodhana, and Sakuni; and Drupada and Chekitana, and that mighty car-warrior Satyaki engaged in battle with the high-souled Drona aided by his son.
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.6.83.4365 Then the mighty Sakuni, devoted to the king, quickly coming to that spot, caused thy royal son to mount on his own car in the very sight of all.
Mbh.6.85.4479 And so also the brave Sakuni, thy brother-in-law, O monarch, speedily caused Gautama, that foremost of car-warriors, to mount on his car.
Mbh.6.91.4752 SECTION XCI Sanjaya said, During the progress, O king, of that fierce battle fraught with the slaughter of great heroes, Sakuni the glorious son of Suvala, rushed against the Pandavas.
Mbh.6.91.4783 Those six brothers endued with great strength, viz, Gaya, Gavaksha, Vrishava, Charmavat, Arjava, and Suka dashed out of the mighty Kaurava array, supported by Sakuni and by their respective forces of great valour, themselves clad in mail, skilled in battle, fierce in mien, and possessed of exceeding might.
Mbh.6.97.5132 Alas, for Duryodhana's, fault, and also of Sakuni the son of Suvala, as also through the evil counsels of Karna, the Kshatriya race is being exterminated, O slayer of Madhu, I now understand, O mighty-armed one, that the king acted wisely by begging of Suyodhana only half the kingdom, or, instead, only five villages.
Mbh.6.98.5197 SECTION XCVIII Sanjaya said, Then king Duryodhana, and Sakuni the son of Suvala, and thy son Dussasana, and the invincible Suta's son Karna meeting together, consulted in the following way.
Mbh.6.98.5200 Then king Duryodhana, addressing the Suta's son and the mighty Sakuni, said unto all those counsellors of his, Drona, Bhishma, and Kripa, and Salya and Somadatta's son do not resist the Parthas.
Mbh.6.99.5321 Let our maternal uncle Sakuni, and Salya, and Kripa, and Drona, and Vivingsati, carefully protect the son of Ganga.
Mbh.6.100.5335 Kripa, and Kritavarman, and that mighty car-warrior Saivya, and Sakuni, and the ruler of the Sindhus, and Sudakshina the ruler of the Kamvojas, these all, together with Bhishma and thy sons, O Bharata, took up their stations in the van of the whole army and in the very front of the Kaurava array.
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.7.7.217 And Sakuni, accompanied by many foremost of horsemen battling with bright lances and belonging to the Gandhara tribe, proceeded, acting as their support.
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.7.28.1463 Sakuni also, conversant with a hundred different kinds of illusions, seeing his brothers slain, created illusions for confounding the two Krishnas.
Mbh.7.28.1474 Upon all his illusions being destroyed, afflicted with Arjuna's shafts and unmanned by fear, Sakuni fled away, aided by his fleet, steeds, like a vulgar wretch.
Mbh.7.32.1714 There also on Jayadratha's flank, were those mighty car-warriors, viz, the ruler of Gandhara, ie, the gamester Sakuni, and Salya, and Bhurisrava.
Mbh.7.35.1830 And Sakuni pierced him with two, and king Duryodhana with three shafts.
Mbh.7.37.1883 Careering with great speed like a circle of fire, he pierced Drona and Karna, and Kripa, and Salya and Drona's son, and Kritavarman of the Bhoja race, and Vrihadvala, and Duryodhana, and Somadatta, and mighty Sakuni, and diverse kings and diverse princes and diverse bodies of troops.
Mbh.7.44.2097 Beholding them broken and routed, Drona and Drona's son, and Vrihadvala, and Kripa, and Duryodhana, and Karna, and Kritavarman, and Suvala's son Sakuni, rushed in great wrath against the unvanquished son of Subhadra.
Mbh.7.72.3156 Myself, Vikartana's son, Karna, Chitrasena, Vivinsati, Bhurisravas, Sala, Salya, the invincible Vrishasena, Purumitra, Jaya, Bhoja, Sudakshina the ruler of the Kamvojas, Satyavrata, the mighty-armed, Vikarna, Durmukha, Dussasana, Subahu, the ruler of the Kalingas, with his weapons upraised, Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, Drona, Drona's son, and Suvala's son Sakuni, these and numerous other kings will, with their forces, face the battle surrounding thee on all sides!
Mbh.7.83.3695 Who else, again, is there, save Duryodhana, and Karna, and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and Duhsasana as their fourth, for I do not see the fifth that would venture to resist my foes while the latter display their celestial weapons?
Mbh.7.84.3724 Forsaking eternal virtue, how couldst thou follow the counsels of Duryodhana and Karna and Sakuni?
Mbh.7.92.4257 Sakuni with seven hundred Gandhara warriors armed with bows, darts and swords, resisted the son of Madri viz, Sahadeva.
Mbh.7.93.4291 The two sons of Madri, filled with wrath, fiercely ground with their shafts the Gandhara prince Sakuni who had offended against them greatly.
Mbh.7.93.4294 Forced to turn his back on the field by the two sons of Pandu with their shafts, Sakuni unable to put forth his valour, knew not what to do.
Mbh.7.117.5696 And Duryodhana and Chitrasena and Duhsasana and Vivinsati, and Sakuni and Duhsaha, and the youthful Durdharshana, and Kratha, and many other brave warriors well-conversant with weapons and difficult of defeat, wrathfully followed Satyaki from behind as he proceeded onwards.
Mbh.7.117.5719 And Sakuni pierced him with five and twenty arrows and Chitrasena with five.
Mbh.7.117.5727 Thy brother-in-law Sakuni then, O king, taking up another bow, pierced Satyaki with eight arrows and once more with five.
Mbh.7.127.6347 Those innocent things with which Sakuni had formerly played in the Kuru assembly and which he regarded as dice, were, in reality, invincible shafts.
Mbh.7.148.7751 Those dice, O sire, with which Sakuni formerly played in the Kuru assembly, were not dice but keen arrows capable of slaying foes.
Mbh.7.148.7761 What other Brahmana, except myself, in this world, would seek to injure those princes that are ever engaged in the practice of virtue and that are to me even as my own sons With the approval of Dhritarashtra, in the midst of the Kuru assembly, thou hadst, with Sakuni as thy help-mate, provoked the ire of the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.152.7977 Then Sakuni, with a shaft that had drunk oil, cut off that dart as it coursed towards Karna.
Mbh.7.153.8019 Then with a thousand cars and ten thousand horses, Duryodhana took his station, encompassing Somadatta, Sakuni also, filled with rage, and armed with every weapon and surrounded by his sons and grandsons as also by his brothers, that were equal to Indra himself in prowess did the same.
Mbh.7.153.8151 Thus addressed by thy son, Sakuni proceeded quickly to destroy the Pandavas, filling thy son's heart, O king, with delight.
Mbh.7.155.8362 Duryodhana, and Drona, and Sakuni, and Durmukha, and Jaya, and Duhsasana, and Vrishasena, and the ruler of the Madras, and thyself too and Somadatta and Drona's son, and Vivinsati, all these heroes skilled in battle, are here, clad in mail.
Mbh.7.160.8675 And Drona's son and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, placed themselves on the right and the left flanks.
Mbh.7.162.8765 Sakuni, the son of Suvala, O king, proceeding quickly, resisted that foremost of warriors, viz, Nakula, who was conversant with every kind of battle.
Mbh.7.167.8977 SECTION CLXIX Sanjaya said, Against Nakula who was engaged in smiting thy host, Suvala's son Sakuni in wrath, rushed with great impetuosity and addressing him, said, Wait!
Mbh.7.167.8987 Beholding his proud foe, that mortal enemy of his in that plight, Sakuni uttered a roar loud as that of the clouds at the end of summer.
Mbh.7.167.8989 Inflamed with rage, O bull of Bharata's race, he pierced Sakuni with sixty arrows, and more with a hundred long shafts at the centre of his chest.
Mbh.7.168.9048 And Duryodhana pierced him with twenty arrows and Sakuni with five.
Mbh.7.168.9105 Thus addressed and urged by thy son, Sakuni, clad in mail, proceeded against the Parthas, accompanied by a large force as also by thy sons, in order to consume the sons of Pandu.
Mbh.7.169.9132 Sakuni, meanwhile, O king, encompassing Arjuna on all sides with many thousands of cars and several thousands of elephants, and many thousands of steeds, began to fight desperately.
Mbh.7.169.9138 Then Arjuna, O Bharata, pierced Sakuni with twenty arrows in that battle.
Mbh.7.169.9143 Having achieved that fierce feat, and pierced Sakuni once more, struck Uluka with an arrow in that battle.
Mbh.7.180.9806 Sanjaya said, Indeed, O king, every night this formed the subject of deliberation with Duryodhana and Sakuni and myself and Duhsasana.
Mbh.7.180.9827 Vasudeva said, Duhsasana and Karna and Sakuni and the ruler of the Sindhus, with Duryodhana at their head, had frequently debated on this subject.
Mbh.7.181.9843 SECTION CLXXXIII Dhritarashtra said, I see, O sire, that this act of Karna and Duryodhana and Suvala's son, Sakuni, and of thyself, in especial, hath been very much against the dictates of policy.
Mbh.7.183.10034 Sanjaya continued, Unto Drona who was thus applauding Arjuna, thy son, O king, angered thereat, once more said these words: Myself and Duhsasana, and Karna, and my maternal uncle, Sakuni, dividing this Bharata host into two divisions and taking one with us, shall to-day slay Arjuna in battle'
Mbh.7.184.10081 Then Duryodhana and Karna, and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, covered Kunti's son, Dhananjaya, with showers of shafts.
Mbh.7.184.10121 Duryodhana, and Karna, and Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and the uterine brothers of Duryodhana stationed, according to their precedence, began to protect Drona in battle.
Mbh.7.191.10585 The ruler of the Gandharas Sakuni, beholding Drona of the golden car slain, fled with the car-warriors of his division, with speed that was much greater.
Mbh.7.198.11127 And then he slew fifteen thousand elephants of Kripa's force and fifty thousand horses of Sakuni.
Mbh.13.148.12487 Indeed, through the fault of Duryodhana, of Karna, of Sakuni, and of Duhsasana numbering the fourth, that the Kurus have perished.
Mbh.14.1.18 Cast off this wicked-minded monarch, Suyodhana, and let not either Karna or Sakuni by any means see him.
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.14.60.2775 After the fall of Sakuni, the royal son of Dhritarashtra, whose army had suffered an extensive carnage and who on that account had become exceedingly cheerless, fled from the field, armed with his mace.
Mbh.14.83.3732 Then occurred a fierce battle between the diadem-decked hero and the ruler of Gandharas, viz, the son of Sakuni, who had a bitter rememberance of the grudge his sire bore to the Pandavas'
Mbh.14.84.3733 SECTION LXXXIV Vaisampayana said, The heroic son of Sakuni, who was a mighty car-warrior among the Gandharas, accompanied by a large force, proceeded against the Kuru hero of curly hair
Mbh.14.84.3735 Unable to bear and, therefore, burning to avenge, the slaughter of their king Sakuni, those warriors, armed with bows, rushed together at Partha.
Mbh.14.84.3742 When the Gandhara warriors were thus being slain all around him in battle, the royal son of Sakuni came forward to resist the son of Pandu.
Mbh.14.84.3746 Thus addressed the son of Sakuni, stupefied by folly, disregarded that advice and covered with many swift arrows the Kuru hero who resembled Sakra himself in the feats he accomplished in battle.
Mbh.14.84.3762 Comforting the son of Sakuni, he said, Thou hast not, O mighty-armed hero, done what is agreeable to me by getting thy heart upon these measures of hostility.
Mbh.15.31.1267 Know that Duryodhana was Kali, and Sakuni was Dwapara.
Mbh.15.32.1300 There were Karna and Duryodhana, and the mighty car-warrior Sakuni, and the other children, endued with great strength, of Dhritarashtra, headed by Dussasana.
