MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.76 This work is a tree, of which the chapter of contents is the seed; the divisions called Pauloma and Astika are the root; the part called Sambhava is the trunk; the books called Sabha and Aranya are the roosting perches; the books called Arani is the knitting knots; the books called Virata and Udyoga the pith; the book named Bhishma, the main branch; the book called Drona, the leaves; the book called Karna, the fair flowers; the book named Salya, their sweet smell; the books entitled Stri and Aishika, the refreshing shade; the book called Santi, the mighty fruit; the book called Aswamedha, the immortal sap; the denominated Asramavasika, the spot where it groweth; and the book called Mausala, is an epitome of the Vedas and held in great respect by the virtuous Brahmanas.
Mbh.1.1.177 When I heard that Drona, Kritavarma, Kripa, Karna, the son of Drona, and the valiant king of Madra Salya suffered Saindhava to be slain, then, O Sanjaya, I had no hope of success.
Mbh.1.2.281 Kama the desolator of hostile armies fought for two days; and Salya for half a day.
Mbh.1.2.342 Then, you know, is Karna, and then Salya.
Mbh.1.2.371 This parva treats of the journey of the Pandavas towards Panchala, the acquisition of Draupadi in the midst of all the Rajas, by Arjuna, after having successfully pierced the mark; and in the ensuing fight, the defeat of Salya, Kama, and all the other crowned heads at the hands of Bhima and Arjuna of great prowess; the ascertainment by Balarama and Krishna, at the sight of these matchless exploits, that the heroes were the Pandavas, and the arrival of the brothers at the house of the potter where the Pandavas were staying; the dejection of Drupada on learning that Draupadi was to be wedded to five husbands; the wonderful story of the five Indras related in consequence; the extraordinary and divinely-ordained wedding of Draupadi; the sending of Vidura by the sons of Dhritarashtra as envoy to the Pandavas; the arrival of Vidura and his sight to Krishna; the abode of the Pandavas in Khandava-prastha, and then their rule over one half of the kingdom; the fixing of turns by the sons of Pandu, in obedience to the injunction of Narada, for connubial companionship with Krishna.
Mbh.1.2.410 Then is described how, when the king of Madra was coming for the assistance of the Pandavas, Duryodhana, having deceived him on the way by presents and hospitality, induced him to grant a boon and then solicited his assistance in battle; how Salya, having passed his word to Duryodhana, went to the Pandavas and consoled them by reciting the history of Indra's victory over Vritra.
Mbh.1.2.453 Then the application to each other by Karna and Salya of harsh words on their setting out for the field, then the story of the swan and the crow recited in insulting allusion: then the death of Pandya at the hands of the high-souled Aswatthaman; then the death of Dandasena; then that of Darda; then Yudhishthira's imminent risk in single combat with Karna in the presence of all the warriors; then the mutual wrath of Yudhishthira and Arjuna; then Krishna's pacification of Arjuna.
Mbh.1.2.458 Then hath been recited the wonderful Parva called Salya.
Mbh.1.2.461 Then comes the fall of the great Salya at the hands of Yudhishthira, the Just.
Mbh.1.67.3433 He who had been known as Samhlada, the younger brother of Prahlada, became among men the famous Salya, that bull amongst Valhikas.
Mbh.1.102.5743 It was then, O king, that mighty car-warrior, king Salya of immeasurable prowess, from behind summoned Bhishma, the son of Santanu, to an encounter.
Mbh.1.102.5745 And Salya of mighty arms, moved by wrath addressed Bhishma and said, Stay, Stay'
Mbh.1.102.5748 All the monarchs seeing him stop, stood there to become spectators of the coming encounter between him and Salya.
Mbh.1.102.5750 Then that foremost of men, king Salya covered Bhishma, the son of Santanu with hundreds and thousands of swift-winged shafts.
Mbh.1.102.5751 And those monarchs seeing Salya thus covering Bhishma at the outset with innumerable shafts, wondered much and uttered shouts of applause.
Mbh.1.102.5752 Beholding his lightness of hand in combat, the crowd of regal spectators became very glad and applauded Salya greatly.
Mbh.1.102.5754 In wrath, he commanded his charioteer, saying, Lead thou my car to where Salya is, so that I may slay him instantly as Garuda slays a serpent'
Mbh.1.102.5755 Then the Kuru chief fixed the Varuna weapon on his bow-string, and with it afflicted the four steeds of king Salya.
Mbh.1.102.5759 O bull of Bharata's race, Salya, after his defeat, returned to his kingdom and continued to rule it virtuously.
Mbh.1.113.6179 It is also well-known, O Salya, that this custom in respect of family dignity hath the approval of the wise and the good'
Mbh.1.113.6180 Saying this Bhishma of great energy, gave unto Salya much gold both coined and uncoined, and precious stones of various colours by thousands, and elephants and horses and cars, and much cloth and many ornaments, and gems and pearls and corals.
Mbh.1.113.6181 And Salya accepting with a cheerful heart those precious gifts then gave away his sister decked in ornaments unto that bull of the Kuru race.
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.1.188.9439 Then those princes, Karna, Duryodhana, Salwa, Salya, Aswatthaman, Kratha, Sunitha, Vakra, the ruler of Kalinga and Banga, Pandya, Paundra, the ruler of Videha, the chief of the Yavanas, and many other sons and grandsons of kings, sovereigns of territories with eyes like lotus-petals, one after another began to exhibit prowess for winning that maiden of unrivalled beauty.
Mbh.1.188.9452 Then the great hero Salya, the king of Madra, endued with great strength, in endeavouring to string the bow fell upon his knees on the ground.
Mbh.1.189.9457 And some there were, possessed of intelligence and foresight, who addressing one another said, Ye Brahmanas, how can a Brahmana stripling unpractised in arms and weak in strength, string that bow which such celebrated Kshatriyas as Salya and others endued with might and accomplished in the science and practice of arms could not?
Mbh.1.189.9473 And that bow which Rukma, Sunitha, Vakra, Radha's son, Duryodhana, Salya, and many other kings accomplished in the science and practice of arms, could not even with great exertion, string, Arjuna, the son of Indra, that foremost of all persons endued with energy and like unto the younger brother of Indra Vishnu in might, strung in the twinkling of an eye.
Mbh.1.191.9524 And Salya the mighty king of Madra rushed against Bhima like an elephant rushing against another for the sake of a she-elephant in heat; while Duryodhana and others engaged with the Brahmanas, skirmished with them lightly and carelessly.
Mbh.1.191.9544 Meanwhile on another part of the field, the mighty heroes Salya and Vrikodara, well-skilled in battle and possessed of great strength and proficiency, challenging each other, engaged in fight like two elephants in rut.
Mbh.1.191.9548 Fighting with each other thus for a few seconds, Bhima the foremost of the Kuru heroes taking up Salya on his arms hurled him to a distance.
Mbh.1.191.9549 And Bhimasena, that bull amongst men, surprised all by the dexterity of his feat for though he threw Salya on the ground he did it without hurting him much.
Mbh.1.191.9550 And when Salya was thus thrown down and Karna was struck with fear, the other monarchs were all alarmed.
Mbh.1.191.9555 Who also can overthrow in battle Salya, that first of mighty warriors, except the hero Valadeva or Vrikodara, the son of Pandu, or the heroic Duryodhana?
Mbh.1.201.9961 And it became known that the mighty warrior who had dashed Salya, the king of Madra, on the ground, and who in wrath had terrified the assembled monarchs by means of the tree he had uprooted, and who had taken his stand before all foes in perfect fearlessness, was none else than Bhima, that feller of hostile ranks, whose touch alone was sufficient to take the lives out of all foes.
Mbh.2.31.1354 And the mighty hero, proceeding thence to Sakala, the city of the Madras, made his uncle Salya accept from affection the sway of the Pandavas.
Mbh.2.31.1356 And skilled in war, the prince, taking from Salya a large quantity of jewels and gems, left his kingdom.
Mbh.2.33.1421 And Dhritarashtra and Bhishma and Vidura of high intelligence; and all Kaurava brothers with Duryyodhana at their head; and Suvala the king of Gandhara and Sakuni endued with great strength; and Achala, and Vrishaka, and Karna that foremost of all charioteers; and Salya endued with great might and the strong Valhika; and Somadatta, and Bhuri of the Kuru race, and Bhurisravas and Sala; and Aswatthama, Kripa, Drona, and Jayadratha, the ruler of Sindhu; and Yajnasena with his sons, and Salya that lord of earth and that great car warrior king Bhagadatta of Pragjyotisha accompanied by all Mlechcha tribes inhabiting the marshy regions on the sea-shore; and many mountain kings, and king Vrihadvala; and Vasudeva the king of the Paundrayas, and the kings of Vanga and Kalinga; and Akastha and Kuntala and the kings of the Malavas and the Andhrakas; and the Dravidas and the Singhalas and the king of Kashmira, and king Kuntibhoja of great energy and king Gauravahana, and all the other heroic kings of Valhika; and Virata with his two sons, and Mavella endued with great might; and various kings and princes ruling in various countries; and, O Bharata king Sisupala endued with great energy and invincible in battle accompanied by his son, all of them came to the sacrifice of the son of Pandu.
Mbh.2.36.1513 When the invincible Bhishmaka and king Pandya possessed of every auspicious mark, and that foremost of kings, Rukmi and Ekalavya and Salya, the king of the Madras, are here, how, O son of Pandu, hast thou offered the first worship unto Krishna?
Mbh.2.43.1733 And, O Bhishma, if thy mind is always inclined to sing the praises of others, why dost thou not praise Salya and other rulers of the earth?
Mbh.2.52.2179 And the king of the Southern country stood ready with the coat of mail; the ruler of Magadha, with garlands of flowers and the head-gear; the great warrior Vasudana with a sixty years old elephant, the king of Matsya, with the side-fittings of the car, all encased in gold; king Ekalavya, with the shoes; the king of Avanti, with diverse kinds of water for the final bath; king Chekitana, with the quiver; the king of Kasi, with the bow; and Salya; with a sword whose hilt and straps were adorned with gold.
Mbh.2.57.2358 And the mighty-armed one, endued with great prowess, then approached Somadatta, and then Duryodhana and Salya, and the son of Suvala, and those other kings also that had arrived there before him.
Mbh.5.4.100 Let speedy messengers go to Salya, and Dhrishtaketu, and Jayatsena, and the prince of the Kekayas.
Mbh.5.4.104 Quickly send word to Salya, and to the kings under him, and to king Bhagadatta of immeasurable valour residing on the eastern sea-coast, and to fierce Hardikya, and Ahuka, and the king of the Mallas of powerful understanding, and Rochamana.
Mbh.5.8.216 SECTION VIII Vaisampayana said, O king, having learnt the news from the messengers, Salya, accompanied by a large body of troops and by his sons, all of whom were mighty in battle, was coming to the Pandavas.
Mbh.5.8.225 And arriving at those pavilions, and waited upon like a very god by the servants of Duryodhana located at different spots, Salya reached another house of entertainment resplendent as a retreat of the celestials.
Mbh.5.8.232 And when Salya was exceedingly pleased and ready to grant even his life, Duryodhana, who had remained concealed, came forward and showed himself to his maternal uncle.
Mbh.5.8.234 And Salya embraced Duryodhana and said, Accept something that you may desire'
Mbh.5.8.237 Vaisampayana continued, And hearing this, Salya said, Be it so!
Mbh.5.8.240 And Salya said, O Duryodhana, O best of men, go to thy own city.
Mbh.5.8.247 And Salya answered, Good betide thee!
Mbh.5.8.250 And then those two kings Salya and Duryodhana embraced each other.
Mbh.5.8.251 And having thus greeted Salya, Duryodhana came back to his own city.
Mbh.5.8.252 And Salya went to inform the sons of Kunti of that proceeding of his.
Mbh.5.8.253 And having reached Upaplavya, and entered the encampment, Salya saw there all the sons of Panda.
Mbh.5.8.254 And the mighty-armed Salya having met the sons of Panda, accepted as usual water for washing his feet, and the customary gifts of honour including a cow.
Mbh.5.8.256 And when all had sat down, Salya spoke to Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, saying, O tiger among kings, O thou delighter of the race of Kuru, is it all well with thee?
Mbh.5.8.280 Salya said, Good betide thee.
Mbh.5.9.292 Salya said, Listen, O king, to me as I relate this ancient story of the events of former days, how, O descendant of Bharata, misery befell Indra and his wife.
Mbh.5.9.312 Salya continued, Commanded by Indra, they then went to the three-headed being.
Mbh.5.9.353 Salya said, Hearing this, the carpenter, at the request of the great Indra, immediately severed the heads of the three-headed one with his axe.
Mbh.5.10.392 Salya continued, Indra having thus spoken, the gods with that host of Rishis repaired to the mighty god Vishnu to place themselves under the-protection of that protector of all.
Mbh.5.10.408 Salya continued, When he had thus spoken, the Rishis and the celestials placed Indra at their head, and uniting together, went away.
Mbh.5.10.431 Salya said, Hearing these words of the great Rishis, the illustrious Asura spoke to them, No doubt, the Rishis, endued with supernatural powers, are to be respected by me.
Mbh.5.11.461 SECTION XI Salya said, Then all the Rishis and the superior gods said, Let the handsome Nahusha be crowned as king of the gods.
Mbh.5.12.495 SECTION XII Salya said, Seeing Nahusha enraged, the gods led by the saints spoke unto him, Who was now their king of awful mien?
Mbh.5.12.515 Salya continued, Thus having spoken to him, the gods with the saint went to inform Vrihaspati and the queen of Indra of the said news.
Mbh.5.12.538 Salya continued, Then the gods and the Gandharvas said these words to the preceptor of the gods, O Vrihaspati, deliberate upon something that may be conformable to sound policy'
Mbh.5.12.544 Salya continued, Vrihaspati having spoken so, the gods, delighted then said, Well hast thou said, O Brahmana.
Mbh.5.13.554 SECTION XIII Salya said, Now then Nahusha, the king of the gods, looked at her and said, O thou of sweet smiles, I am the Indra of all the three worlds.
Mbh.5.14.595 SECTION XIV Salya said, Then the goddess of Divination stood near that chaste and beautiful lady.
Mbh.5.15.620 SECTION XV Salya said, Thus addressed by Sachi, the illustrious god said to her again, This is not the time for putting forth valour.
Mbh.5.15.652 Salya continued, Thus addressed, Nahusha was very much pleased.
Mbh.5.15.666 Salya continued, Having thus addressed that goddess of lovely face, and having dismissed her thus, he harnessed to his heavenly car a number of saints devoted to the practice of austerities.
Mbh.5.16.711 Salya continued, Then Agni entered the waters including seas and tiny ponds, and came to that reservoir, where, O best of Bharata's race, while searching the lotus flowers, he saw the king of the gods lying within the fibres of a lotus-stalk.
Mbh.5.16.738 Salya continued, While that best of Angira's race was thus speaking, there came that guardian of the world, Kuvera, and also Yama the son of Surya, and the old god Soma, and Varuna.
Mbh.5.16.751 Salya continued, Thus did the illustrious lord Indra, the chastiser of Paka, the giver of boons, bestow, after deliberation upon Kuvera the sovereignty over the Yakshas, and all the wealth of the world; upon Yama, the sovereignty over the Pitris; and upon Varuna, that over the waters'
Mbh.5.17.752 SECTION XVII Salya said, Now when the great Indra, the intelligent chief of the gods, was deliberating with the guardians of the world and other deities upon the means of slaying Nahusha, there appeared at that spot the venerable ascetic Agastya.
Mbh.5.17.759 Salya continued, Indra, well-pleased, began to question that best of saints and greatest of Brahmanas when he was seated on a seat after receiving due honours, thus, O revered saint, O best of Brahmanas, I wish to have it recited by thee how Nahusha of vicious soul was hurled from heaven'
Mbh.5.17.775 Salya continued, Then, O ruler of men, the gods, and the bands of great saints were exceedingly pleased.
Mbh.5.18.781 SECTION XVIII Salya said, Then Indra, glorified by the bands of Gandharvas and celestial nymphs, mounted on Airavata, the king of elephants, characterised by auspicious marks.
Mbh.5.18.806 Vaisampayana continued, O best of Bharata's race, the king, that best of righteous men, thus encouraged by Salya, honoured him in proper form.
Mbh.5.18.807 And Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, of powerful arms, having beard the words of Salya, spoke to the king of the Madras the following words, There is no doubt that thou wilt act as the charioteer of Karna.
Mbh.5.18.809 Salya said, Let it be so.
Mbh.5.18.812 Vaisampayana continued, Then Salya, the king of the Madras, bade farewell to the sons of Kunti.
Mbh.5.19.830 And so the valiant Bhurisravas, and Salya, O son of Kuru, came to Duryodhana, with an Akshauhini of troops each.
Mbh.5.25.1052 Who again, O king, can defeat in battle the Kurus who are protected by Drona and Bhishma, and Aswatthaman, and Salya, and Kripa and Karna with a host of Kshatriya kings?
Mbh.5.47.2657 And Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Salya, and Kritavarman and Jayadratha, and Aswatthaman and Vikarna, and Somadatta and Vahlika and Vidura of great wisdom and Yuyutsu, the great car-warrior, all these heroic kings in a body, O bull among the Bharatas, having Dhritarashtra at their head, entered that hall of great beauty.
Mbh.5.48.2744 It was Krishna who fought with king Salya, the lord of Saubha, stationed in the skies, fearless in consequence of his powers of illusion; and it was he, who, at the gate of Subha caught with his hands the fierce Sataghni hurled by Saubha's lord.
Mbh.5.55.3079 Bhishma, Drona Kripa and Drona's son, Karna and, Bhurisravas, Salya, the king of Pragjyotish, and Jayadratha, the king of the Sindhus, every one of these, O Bharata, is singly capable of slaying the Pandavas.
Mbh.5.55.3110 Those, however, amongst us, that are our chief warriors, are Bhishma, Drona, Kripa, Drona's son, Karna, Somadatta, Vahlika, and Salya, the king of Pragjyotisha, the two kings Vindha and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Jayadratha; and then, O king, thy sons Dussasana, Durmukha, Dussaha, Srutayu; Chitrasena, Purumitra, Vivingsati, Sala, Bhurisravas, and Vikarna.
Mbh.5.57.3190 Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Karna and Drona's son and Salya and Suyodhana, them all I withstand, like the bank resisting the swelling sea'
Mbh.5.58.3214 I myself do not desire war, nor Vahlika, nor Bhishma, nor Drona, nor Aswatthaman, nor Sanjaya, nor Somadatta, nor Salya, nor Kripa, nor Satyavrata, nor Purumitra, nor Bhurisravas, in fact, none of these desireth war.
Mbh.5.60.3282 Endued with energy and well-versed in the use of weapons, those tigers among men, the sons of Pritha, when united with the celestials, will be incapable of being even gazed upon by human warriors, He who hath the irresistible, excellent and celestial Gandiva for his bow, he who hath a couple of celestial quivers obtained from Varuna, large, full of shafts, and inexhaustible, he on whose banner, that is unobstructed like smoke in its action, is stationed the monkey-image of celestial origin, whose car is unequalled on the earth girt by the four seas, and the rattle of which as heard by men is like the roar of the clouds, and which like the rolling of the thunder frightens the foe; he whom the whole world regards as superhuman in energy; he whom all the kings of the earth know to be the vanquisher of the very gods in battle; he that taketh up five hundred arrows at a time and in the twinkling of the eye, shooteth them, unseen by other, to a great distance; that son of Pritha and tiger among car-warriors and chastiser of foes, whom Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Drona's son and Salya, the king of the Madras, and in fact, all impartial persons, regard as incapable of being vanquished by even earthly kings of superhuman prowess, when ready for fight who shooteth at one stretch full five hundred arrows, and who is equal unto Kartavirya in strength of arms; that great bowman, Arjuna, equal unto Indra or Upendra in prowess, I behold that great warrior committing a great havoc in this terrible battle.
Mbh.5.61.3316 Whatever knowledge of weapons is in the Grandsire, in Drona, and Kripa, and Salya, and Shalya, exist in me as well.
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.5.161.7221 Without having vanquished in battle the invincible Karna of the Suta race, or Salya, that foremost of persons, or Drona, the first of all mighty warriors and equal unto the lord of Sachi in battle, how canst thou, O Partha, covet for thy kingdom?
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.5.162.7286 Without having vanquished in battle the Suta's son Karna who is invincible, and Salya, that foremost of mighty persons, and that first of all warriors and equal unto Sachi's lord himself in combat, why, O son of Pritha, dost thou wish for sovereignty?
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.5.165.7483 And he pitted Arjuna against the Suta's son Karna, Bhima against Duryodhana, Dhrishtaketu against Salya, Uttamaujas against Gautama's son Kripa, Nakula against Kritavarman, Yuyudhana against the ruler of the Sindhus Jayadratha.
Mbh.5.166.7527 The ruler of the Madras, the mighty bowman Salya, is, as I think, an Atiratha.
Mbh.5.166.7529 Having abandoned his own sister's sons, that best of kings, Salya, hath become thine.
Mbh.5.198.8831 Then came Kritavarman at the head of his troops, and that mighty car-warrior, viz, the ruler of the Trigartas, and the king Duryodhana surrounded by his brothers, and Sala, and Bhurisravas, and Salya, and Vrihadratha, the ruler of the Kosalas.
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.6.17.861 And Srutayudha and Chitrasena and Purumitra and Vivinsati, and Salya and Bhurisravas, and that mighty car-warrior Vikarna, these seven mighty bowmen on their carts and cased in excellent mail, followed Drona's son behind but in advance of Bhishma.
Mbh.6.17.865 Paurava and the ruler of the Kalingas, and Salya, these Rathas took up their position in Duryodhana's van.
Mbh.6.43.2009 Having paid his respects to all his superiors such as Bhishma, Drona, and Kripa, and Salya also, he will fight the foe.
Mbh.6.43.2111 Saluting Salya and walking round him the king said unto that invincible warrior those words that were for his own benefit.
Mbh.6.43.2113 Salya said, If, having resolved on fight, thou hadst not come to me thus, I would have, O king, cursed thee for thy overthrow in battle.
Mbh.6.43.2127 Salya said, Under these circumstances, say, O best of kings what aid shall I render thee?
Mbh.6.43.2129 Yudhishthira said, Even that is my boon, O Salya, which was solicited by me during the preparations for the fight.
Mbh.6.43.2131 Salya said, This thy wish, O Yudhishthira, shall be accomplished, O son of Kunti.
Mbh.6.47.2342 SECTION XLVII Sanjaya said, After the great part of the forenoon of that awful day had worn out, in that terrific engagement, O king, that was so destructive of foremost of men, Durmukha and Kritavarman, and Kripa, and Salya, and Vivinsati, urged by thy son, approached Bhishma and began to protect him.
Mbh.6.47.2352 Piercing Kritavarman with one arrow, and Salya with five, he weakened his great-grandsire with nine arrows.
Mbh.6.47.2363 And Kritavarman, and Kripa, and Salya also, O sire, piercing Arjuna's son, all failed to make him waver, for he stood firm like the Mainaka mountain.
Mbh.6.47.2382 Salya, however, succeeded in checking the unparalleled impetuosity of that prince of elephants rushing quickly towards his car.
Mbh.6.47.2386 And Salya then, taking up his sword and jumping down from his excellent car, and putting forth his prowess, cut off the large trunk of that prince of elephants.
Mbh.6.47.2389 And beholding his brother Uttara slain and seeing Salya staying with Kritavarman, Virata's son Sweta blazed up in wrath, like fire blazing up with clarified butter.
Mbh.6.47.2390 And that mighty warrior, stretching his large bow that resembled the bow of Sakra himself, rushed with the desire of slaying Salya the ruler of the Madras.
Mbh.6.47.2393 And those seven warriors were Vrihadvala the ruler of the Kosalas, and Jayatsena of Magadha, and Rukmaratha, O king, who was the valourous son of Salya, and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Sudakshina the king of the Kamvojas, and Jayadratha, the ruler of the Sindhus and the kinsman of Vrihadkshatra.
Mbh.6.47.2408 And that chastiser of foes then, piercing their steeds and charioteers also, and covering those six warriors themselves with ceaseless shafts, proceeded towards the car of Salya.
Mbh.6.48.2485 And Valhika and Kritavarman, and Kripa, and Salya also, O Bharata, and the son of Jarasandha, and Vikarna, and Chitrasena, and Vivinsati, with great speed, when speed was so necessary, surrounding him on all sides, poured on Sweta ceaseless showers of arrows.
Mbh.6.48.2508 Beholding Bhishma, that foremost of car-warriors, become a combatant on foot, many car-warriors, viz, Salya and others, speedily rushed to his rescue.
Mbh.6.48.2517 And beholding them rushing to the rescue, with Drona and Salya and Kripa that hero of immeasurable soul Bhishma checked them all like the mountain resisting the force of the wind.
Mbh.6.49.2571 When, after the forenoon had passed away, the commander Sweta was, O Bharata, slain by Bhishma in that fierce conflict, Virata's son Sankha, that grinder of hostile ranks ever delighting in battle, beholding Salya stationed with Kritavarman on his car, suddenly blazed up with wrath, like fire with clarified butter.
Mbh.6.49.2573 And Sankha, causing an arrowy downpour rushed towards the car on which Salya was.
Mbh.6.49.2582 Then Salya, mace in hand, alighting from his large car, slew, O bull of Bharata's race, the four steeds of Sankha.
Mbh.6.50.2638 I shall now fight in battle against Bhishma, and Drona and Kripa and Salya and Jayadratha and all the proud monarchs on the Kuru side.
Mbh.6.51.2656 SECTION LI Sanjaya said, Beholding the mighty and terrible array called Krauncha formed by Pandu's son of immeasurable energy, thy son, approaching the preceptor, and Kripa, and Salya, O sire, and Somadatta's son, and Vikarna, and Aswatthaman also, and all his brothers too, headed by Dussasana, O Bharata, and other immeasurable heroes assembled there for battle, said these timely words, gladdening them all, Armed with various kinds of weapons, ye all are conversant with the meaning of the scriptures.
Mbh.6.51.2665 And Bhurisravas, and Sala, and Salya, and Bhagadatta, O sire, and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, protected the left flank.
Mbh.6.52.2694 And this Drona, and Kripa and Salya and Vikarna, O Janardana, united with Dhritarashtra's sons headed by Duryodhana, and protected by this firm bowman, will slaughter the Panchalas.
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.6.55.2926 SECTION LV Sanjaya said, When the forenoon of that day had passed away, O Bharata, and when the destruction of cars, elephants, steeds, foot-soldiers and horse-soldiers, proceeded on, the prince of Panchala engaged himself in battle with these three mighty car-warriors, viz, Drona's son, Salya, and the high-souled Kripa.
Mbh.6.55.2930 And, O bull of Bharata's race, he pierced Salya with five and twenty, and Kripa with nine arrows, and Aswatthaman with eight.
Mbh.6.55.2931 Drona's son, however, quickly pierced Arjuna's son with many winged arrows, and Salya pierced him with twelve, and Kripa with three sharp arrows.
Mbh.6.56.2974 And Bhurisravas and Sala, and Salya and Bhagadatta, O sire, and the Madrakas, the Sindhu-Souviras, and they that were called the Pancha-nodas, together with Jayadratha, were placed on its neck.
Mbh.6.59.3227 And Bhurisravas hurled at Arjuna seven javelins furnished with wings of gold, and Duryodhana a lance of fierce impetuosity, and Salya a mace, and Santanu's son a dart.
Mbh.6.59.3261 Srutayush, the ruler of the Amvashtas, and Durmarshana, and Chitrasena, and Drona, and Kripa, and the ruler of the Sindhus, and Valhika, and Bhurisravas, and Salya, and Sala, O king, and other warriors by hundreds united together, along with Bhishma himself, have on battle, by the prowess of his own arms, been vanquished today by the angry son of Pritha, viz, Kiritin, that one mighty car-warrior in the world'
Mbh.6.60.3290 And so against that son of Indra who was like unto Indra himself, rushed many other warriors headed by Drona and Kripa and Salya and Vivinsati and Duryodhana and also Somadatta's son, O king.
Mbh.6.61.3305 And piercing the son of Drona with one shaft, and Salya with five, he overthrew the standard of Samyamani's son with eight shafts.
Mbh.6.61.3307 And the heir of Arjuna, baffling in the very sight of Salya, his hundreds of terrible shafts, slew his four steeds.
Mbh.6.61.3308 Thereupon Bhurisravas, and Salya, and Drona's son and Samyamani, and Sala struck with the fear at the strength of arms displayed by Krishna's son could not stay before him.
Mbh.6.61.3330 And so Salya also, that ornament of assemblies, excited with wrath, struck the heroic son of Prishata on his breast.
Mbh.6.62.3340 Dhrishtadyumna, afflicted by Salya with nine shafts, afflicted in return the ruler of Madras with many shafts made of steel.
Mbh.6.62.3341 And then we beheld the prowess of Prishata's son to be highly wonderful inasmuch as he speedily checked Salya that ornament of assemblies.
Mbh.6.62.3344 Then, O king, Salya in that battle cut off Dhrishtadyumna's bow with a broad-headed shaft of sharp edge and excellent temper.
Mbh.6.62.3363 Then, O monarch, Salya covered his nephews, those two foremost of car-warriors desirous of counteracting their uncle's feats, with arrows, but the sons of Madri wavered not.
Mbh.6.64.3448 And that mighty bowman the son of Pandu then pierced Salya with five and twenty shafts furnished with golden wings.
Mbh.6.64.3449 And pierced therewith, Salya was borne away from the battle.
Mbh.6.65.3556 Duryodhana said, Drona and thou, and Salya, and Kripa, and Drona's son, and Kritavarman the son of Hridika, and Sudakshina the ruler of the Kamvojas, and Bhurisravas, and Vikarna, and Bhagadatta of exceeding prowess, are all regarded as mighty car-warriors.
Mbh.6.69.3759 Then Drona and Bhishma, and Salya also, O sire, excited with rage, covered Bhimasena, in that battle, with their shafts.
Mbh.6.71.3813 And king Yudhishthira with his sons and counsellors engaged with Salya, the famous chief of the Madras.
Mbh.6.72.3846 And those invincible warriors, viz, Satyaki and Chekitana, and the mighty son of Subhadra, proceeded against Salya and the Kaikeyas.
Mbh.6.75.3990 And thy army also, with Bhishma and Kripa and Drona and Salya and Duryodhana, and others, shone like the firmament spangled with the planets.
Mbh.6.82.4258 SECTION LXXXII Sanjaya said, O chief of the Bharatas, Ganga's son, once more addressing thy son who was plunged in thought, told him these delightful words, Myself and Drona and Salya and Kritavarman of Satwata's race, and Aswatthaman and Vikarna and Bhagadatta and Suvala's son and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Valhika with the Valhikas and the mighty king of the Trigartas and the invincible ruler of the Magadhas, Vrihadvala the king of the Kosalas, and Chitrasena and Vivingsati and many thousands of car-warriors graced with tall standards, a large number of country-born steeds well-mounted with excellent horse-soldiers and many infuriate elephants of large size with temporal juice issuing from their mouths and cheeks, and many brave foot-soldiers armed with diverse weapons and born in diverse realms, are all prepared to do battle for thy sake
Mbh.6.83.4374 Then from that car whose steeds had been slain, Kritavarman quickly went to the car of Vrishaka, in the very sight, O king, of both Salya and thy son.
Mbh.6.84.4430 Then Salya, that mighty car-warrior, smiting effectively in that battle, despatched with four excellent shafts, O king, the four steeds of Nakula to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.6.86.4536 And while Sikhandin was proceeding to battle with great impetuosity for falling upon Bhishma, Salya began to resist him with terrible weapons that were difficult of being baffled.
Mbh.6.86.4539 And then he took up another weapon, viz, the fierce Varuna weapon for baffling those fiery weapons of Salya.
Mbh.6.87.4604 And Drona, and Drona's son, and Kripa, and Salya, and Kritavarman of the Satwata race, surrounding the whole Dhartarashtra army, proceeded towards their tents.
Mbh.6.93.4912 They met Duryodhana and Somadatta and Valhika and Jayadratha; and Kripa and Bhurisravas and Salya, and the two princes of Avanti along with Vrihadvala, and Aswatthaman and Vikarna, and Chitrasena and Vivinsati.
Mbh.6.93.4935 These, O king, succeeded in piercing Salya accomplished in battle
Mbh.6.95.4996 Kripa and Bhurisravas and Salya, and Drona's son and Vivingsati, and Chitrasena and Vikarna, and the ruler of the Sindhus, and Vrihadvala, and those two mighty bowmen, viz, the two princes of Avanti, surrounded the Kuru king.
Mbh.6.95.5026 Drona and Duryodhana and Salya and Aswatthaman, and other great bowmen that were regarded as foremost among the Kauravas, also seemed to fly away.
Mbh.6.96.5048 Myself, and Drona, and Kripa, and Drona's son, and Kritavarman of the Satwata race, and Salya, and Somadatta's son, and that mighty car-warrior Vikarna, and thy heroic brothers headed by Dussasana, will all, for thy sake, battle against that mighty Rakshasas.
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.6.100.5336 Drona and Bhurisravas and Salya and Bhagadatta, O sire, clad in mail, took up their position in the right wing of that array.
Mbh.6.103.5509 Then Duryodhana and that foremost of car-warriors, viz, Kripa, and Aswatthaman, and Salya, and Sudakshina, the ruler of the Kamvojas, and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Valhika supported by the Valhikas, with a large number of cars surrounded Partha on all sides.
Mbh.6.104.5574 Hearing then these words uttered by all the combatants, thy son Duryodhana, that offender against all, addressed Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Salya, O Bharata, saying, Fight ye without boastfulness.
Mbh.6.106.5642 Hearing these words of thy son, the valiant Salya proceeded with a large body of cars to the spot where Yudhishthira was.
Mbh.6.106.5643 Thereupon, the son of Pandu began to resist in battle that large host of Salya rushing impetuously towards him with the force of a mighty wave.
Mbh.6.114.6190 SECTION CXIV Sanjaya said, Hearing these words of the high-souled Drona, Bhagadatta and Kripa and Salya and Kritavarman, and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Jayadratha the ruler of the Sindhus, and Chitrasena and Vikarna and Durmarshana and others, these ten warriors of thy army, supported by a large host consisting of many nationalities, fought with Bhimasena, desirous of winning high renown in the battle for Bhishma's sake.
Mbh.6.114.6191 And Salya struck Bhima with nine arrows, and Kritavarman struck him with three, and Kripa with nine.
Mbh.6.114.6196 The brave Pandava, that slayer of hostile heroes, pierced Salya with seven arrows, and Kritavarman with eight.
Mbh.6.114.6209 Salya could not brook to see the prowess that Bhimasena displayed, for saying unto him, Wait, Wait, he aimed some sharp arrows well-polished by the forger's hands, and pierced Bhima therewith in that battle.
Mbh.6.114.6210 And Kripa and Kritavarman and the valiant Bhagadatta, and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Chitrasena, and Durmarshana, and Vikarna, and the valiant ruler of the Sindhus also, in that battle, These chastisers of foes, all quickly pierced Bhima for the sake of Salya.
Mbh.6.114.6212 And he pierced Salya then with seventy arrows and once more with ten.
Mbh.6.114.6213 And Salya then pierced him with nine arrows and once more with five.
Mbh.6.114.6223 Bhima, however, in that battle, having pierced Salya with nine arrows made wholly of iron, and Bhagadatta with three, and Kritavarman with eight, pierced each of the others with Gautama at their head, with two arrows.
Mbh.6.114.6229 And Kripa, O king, hurled at him a Sataghni, and Salya an arrow.
Mbh.6.115.6245 SECTION CXV Sanjaya said, Arjuna covered with his straight shafts the mighty car-warrior Salya who was struggling vigorously in battle.
Mbh.6.115.6249 And Salya, and that foremost of car-warriors, viz, Kripa, both pierced Jishnu, O monarch, with diverse arrows capable of penetrating into the very vitals.
Mbh.6.115.6265 The great car-warrior Salya then, excited with wrath and as if sporting in that battle, struck Partha in the chest with some straight shafts of broad heads.
Mbh.6.116.6322 And Yudhishthira proceeded against the mighty bowman Salya at the head of his troops.
Mbh.6.118.6475 And piercing Kripa and Vikarna and Salya with many arrows made wholly of iron, Kunti's son owning white steeds deprived all of them of their cars.
Mbh.6.118.6476 Thus deprived of their cars and vanquished in battle by Savyasachin, Kripa and Salya, O sire, and Dussasana, and Vikarna and Vivingsati, all fled away.
Mbh.6.119.6504 Then Salya and Kripa, and Chitrasena, O Bharata, and Dussasana, and Vikarna, those heroes mounted on their bright cars, caused the Pandava host to tremble.
Mbh.6.120.6562 Thereupon mighty car-warriors, seven in number, viz, Drona and Kritavarman, and Jayadratha the ruler of the Sindhus, and Bhurisravas, and Sala, and Salya, and Bhagadatta could not brook that act of Arjuna.
Mbh.7.14.590 The heroic Salya, laughing the while, pierced, as if in dalliance, his own dear nephew, Nakula.
Mbh.7.14.650 Then in that battle Salya hurled at him a fierce dart made wholly of iron, decked with gold, and resembling a blazing flame of fire.
Mbh.7.14.654 Then that slayer of hostile heroes, viz, the son of Subhadra, hurled with the might of his arms at Salya himself that very dart of great effulgence, decked with stones of lapis lazuli.
Mbh.7.14.661 Then that slayer of foes, viz, Artayani Salya, wishing good of thy sons, and remembering the overthrow of his own driver, rushed in rage against Subhadra's son
Mbh.7.15.666 Tell me, therefore, about this combat between Artayani Salya and Subhadra's son'
Mbh.7.15.667 Sanjaya said, Beholding his driver slain, Salya, upraising a mace made wholly of iron, jumped down in rage from his excellent car.
Mbh.7.15.668 Bhima, then taking up his own huge mace, quickly rushed towards Salya who then resembled the blazing Yuga-fire or the Destroyer himself armed with his bludgeon.
Mbh.7.15.669 Subhadra's son also, taking up a prodigious mace resembling the bolt of heaven, addressed Salya, saying, Come, Come'
Mbh.7.15.671 The valiant Bhimasena, then, having persuaded Subhadra's son to stand aside, approached Salya in battle and stood immovable as a hill.
Mbh.7.15.677 And similarly the mace of Salya, also, who coursed in beautiful circles, looked like a blazing flash of lightning.
Mbh.7.15.679 And both Salya and Vrikodara, standing as they did, with their maces slightly bent, looked like a couple of horned bulls.
Mbh.7.15.681 Struck by Bhimasena with his mace, the prodigious mace of Salya, emitting fierce sparks of fire, soon broke unto fragments.
Mbh.7.15.693 Then the mighty car-warrior Kritavarman quickly approached Salya who, deprived of his senses, was breathing hard as he lay on the field.
Mbh.7.20.898 and Salya, and Somadatta, and Valhika, these heroes, surrounded by a full Akshauhini, took up their position in the right wing.
Mbh.7.30.1593 Then Drona and Kripa, and Karna and Drona's son, and king Jayadratha, and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Salya, received those heroes.
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.7.35.1837 Then Karna and Kripa, and Drona and Drona's son, and the ruler of the Gandharas, and Sala and Salya, and Bhurisravas and Kratha, and Somadatta, and Vivinsati, and Vrishasena, and Sushena, and Kundavedhin, and Pratardana, and Vrindaraka and Lalithya, and Pravahu, and Drighalochana, and angry Duryodhana, showered their arrows upon him.
Mbh.7.35.1847 He then scattered over Salya, who happened to be near him thick showers of arrows.
Mbh.7.35.1849 Meanwhile, Salya, pierced by Abhimanyu accomplished in weapons, with straight shafts penetrating into his very vitals, sat down on the terrace of his car and fainted away.
Mbh.7.35.1850 Beholding Salya thus pierced by the celebrated son of Subhadra, all the troops fled away in the very sight of Bharadwaja's son.
Mbh.7.35.1851 Seeing that mighty-armed warrior, viz, Salya, thus covered with shafts of golden wings, thy army fled away like a head of deer attacked by a lion.
Mbh.7.36.1855 Beholding the ruler of the Madras disabled in battle by Subhadra's son with his shafts, the younger brother of Salya, filled with wrath, advanced against Abhimanyu, scattering his 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.7.43.2071 Beholding Rukmaratha, the honoured son of Salya, slain by the illustrious son of Subhadra, that Rukmaratha viz, who had vowed to consume his foe or take him alive, many princely friends of Salya's son, O king, accomplished in smiting and incapable of being easily defeated in battle, and owning standards decked with gold, came up for the fight.
Mbh.7.46.2169 Leaving Aswatthaman alone, Arjuna's son struck Salya, in return, fearlessly pierced him in the chest with highly nine shafts, equipped with vulture's feathers.
Mbh.7.46.2172 Abhimanyu then pierced Salya himself with six shafts made wholly of iron.
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.7.83.3677 The ruler of the Sindhus did not, nor Bhishma; nor Salya; nor Bhurisravas; nor Purumitra; nor Jaya; nor Aswatthaman; nor Kripa; nor Drona, O Sanjaya!
Mbh.7.83.3685 O child, I have kinsmen to whose voice the Pandavas will ever listen, such, for instance, as Salya, Somadatta, the high-souled Bhishma, Drona, Vikarna, Valhika, Kripa, and others among the Bharatas that are illustrious and reverend in years.
Mbh.7.85.3760 Thyself, Somadatta's son, the mighty car-warrior Karna, Aswatthaman, Salya, Vrishasena and Kripa, with a hundred thousand horse, sixty thousand cars, four and ten thousand elephants with rent temples, one and twenty thousand foot-soldiers clad in mail take up your station behind me at the distance of twelve miles.
Mbh.7.92.4254 King Salya, the ruler of the Madras, surrounded royal Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, who resembled a blazing fire.
Mbh.7.92.4267 And for protecting his rear he had a number of warriors headed by Somadatta's son, viz, Kripa, and Vrishasena, and Sala, and the invincible Salya, who were conversant with policy and were mighty bowmen accomplished in battle.
Mbh.7.101.4707 Salya then, taking up another bow, pierced the son of Pandu.
Mbh.7.101.4716 And piercing the son of Somadatta with three arrows and Salya with ten, he pierced Kripa with five and twenty arrows, and the ruler of the Sindhus with a hundred, Partha struck Drona's son with seventy arrows.
Mbh.7.102.4740 Salya, the ruler of the Madras, we saw, had on his standard-top an image like the presiding goddess of corn, endued with beauty and producing every seed.
Mbh.7.102.4747 The standard of Salya, O monarch, bearing a huge silver-elephant was adorned, on all sides, with peacocks made of gold.
Mbh.7.142.7229 Then, Drona's son pierced him with five and twenty arrows, and Vrishasena with seven, and Duryodhana pierced him with twenty, and Karma and Salya each with three.
Mbh.7.143.7340 And the son of Kunti mildly struck Kripa with nine arrows, and he struck Salya with sixteen arrows and Karna with two and thirty.
Mbh.7.143.7368 And he struck Salya and Duryodhana each with six.
Mbh.7.143.7390 And others concealed themselves behind and under the bodies of slain elephants Routing thy host thus, O king, Dhananjaya began to strike with terrible shafts the protectors of the ruler of the Sindhus with his arrowy showers, Karna and Drona's son and Kripa and Salya and Vrishasena and Duryodhana.
Mbh.7.144.7523 Then Vrishasena, the son of Karna, and Salya, the ruler of the Madras, and Drona's son, encompassed the grandson of Sini from all sides.
Mbh.7.146.7688 By good luck, Salya also was obliged to turn away from the field by you both, ye bulls among men.
Mbh.7.148.7766 Why, when thou art alive, and Karna, and Kripa, and Salya, and Aswatthaman, O Kauravya, hath the ruler of the Sindhus been slain?
Mbh.7.153.8146 Karna also, and Vrishasena and Kripa, and Nila, and the Northerners, and Kritavarman, and the sons of Purumitra, and Duhsasana, and Nikumbha, and Kundabhedin, and Puranjaya and Dridharatha, and Hemakampana, and Salya, and Aruni, and Indrasena, and Sanjaya, and Vijaya, and Jaya, and Purakrathin, and Jayavarman, and Sudarsana, these will follow thee, with sixty thousand foot-soldiers.
Mbh.7.156.8429 Thus addressed, Drona's son, and Kripa, and Salya, and that great car-warrior, viz, the son of Hridika, beholding the son of Kunti coming towards them like Sakra himself towards the Daitya host, all advanced against Partha for rescuing the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.157.8507 Myself, Karna, Salya, Kripa, and Hridika's son, could, O best of kings, destroy the Pandava host within the twinkling of an eye.
Mbh.7.160.8674 Drona placed himself at the van, and Salya at the rear.
Mbh.7.165.8911 Then that vast force, O Bharata, fled away on that night, oppressed by hundreds of arrows of Salya, that ornament of battle.
Mbh.7.165.8912 Beholding the troops flying away, Vasudeva and Dhananjaya quickly advanced to that spot, O monarch, where Salya was stationed.
Mbh.7.168.9047 And Drona's son pierced him with five, and Drona himself with five, and Salya pierced him with nine, and Duhsasana with three.
Mbh.7.191.10587 The ruler of the Madras, viz, Salya, also, casting vacant looks around, fled away in fear, taking with him his division, teeming with cars and elephants and steeds.
Mbh.11.1.40 Thy son had Duhshasana for his counsellor, and the wicked-souled son of Radha, and the equally wicked Shakuni and Citrasena of foolish understanding, and Salya.
Mbh.12.5.190 In consequence of a Brahmana's curse, as also of the curse of the illustrious Rama, of the boon granted to Kunti and the illusion practised on him by Indra, of his depreciation by Bhishma as only half a car-warrior, at the tale of Rathas and Atirathas, of the destruction of his energy caused by Salya with his keen speeches, of Vasudeva's policy, and, lastly of the celestial weapons obtained by Arjuna from Rudra and Indra and Yama and Varuna and Kuvera and Drona and the illustrious Kripa, the wielder of Gandiva succeeded in slaying Vikartana's son Karna of effulgence like that of Surya himself.
Mbh.14.60.2744 Indeed, tell me how that battle took place between the high-souled Pandavas on the one side and Bhishma and Karna and Kripa and Drona and Salya and others on the other side, between, in fact, numerous other Kshatriyas well-skilled in aims, differing from one another in mien and attire, and hailing from diverse realms'
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.15.32.1301 There were the son of Jarasandha, and Bhagadatta, and Jalasandha of great energy, and Bhurisravas, and Sala, and Salya, and Vrishasena with his younger brother.
