MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.75.4159 And, O king, they were begotten upon his two wives Devayani and Sarmishtha.
Mbh.1.75.4160 And of Devayani were born Yadu and Turvasu, and of Sarmishtha were born Drahyu, Anu, and Puru.
Mbh.1.78.4377 And it so happened that from the intermingled heap, the garments of Devayani were appropriated by Sarmishtha, the daughter of Vrishaparvan, from ignorance that it was not hers.
Mbh.1.78.4378 And, O king, thereupon, between them, Devayani and Sarmishtha, then ensued a dispute.
Mbh.1.78.4381 Sarmishtha, however, quickly replied, Thy father occupying a lower seat, always adoreth with downcast looks, like a hired chanter of praises, my father, whether he sitteth at his ease or reclineth at full length!
Mbh.1.78.4390 Sarmishtha thereupon threw her into a well and went home.
Mbh.1.78.4391 Indeed, the wicked Sarmishtha believing that Devayani was dead, bent her steps home-wards in a wrathful mood.
Mbh.1.78.4392 After Sarmishtha had left, Yayati the son of Nahusha soon came to that spot.
Mbh.1.78.4417 And she said, I tell thee, O great Brahmana, that Devayani hath been ill-used, O fortunate one, in the forest by Sarmishtha, the daughter of Vrishaparvan'
Mbh.1.78.4418 And Kavya, hearing that his daughter had been ill-used by Sarmishtha speedily went out with a heavy heart, seeking her in the woods.
Mbh.1.78.4422 O, hear that all Sarmishtha, the daughter of Vrishaparvan, hath said unto me.
Mbh.1.78.4424 Even thus hath she, that Sarmishtha, Vrishaparvan's daughter, spoken to me, with reddened eyes, these piercing and cruel words, Thou art the daughter of one that ever chanteth for hire the praises of others, of one that asketh for charities, of one that accepteth alms; whereas I am the daughter of one that receiveth adorations, of one that giveth, of one that never accepteth anything as gift'
Mbh.1.78.4425 These have been the words repeatedly spoken unto me by the proud Sarmishtha, the daughter of Vrishaparvan, with eyes red with anger.
Mbh.1.80.4478 Devayani answered, I desire Sarmishtha with a thousand maids to wait on me!
Mbh.1.80.4480 Vrishaparvan then commanded a maid-servant in attendance on him, saying, Go and quickly bring Sarmishtha hither.
Mbh.1.80.4482 Vaisampayana continued, The maid-servant then repaired to Sarmishtha and told her, O amiable Sarmishtha, rise and follow me.
Mbh.1.80.4486 Sarmishtha replied, I shall cheerfully do what Devayani wisheth.
Mbh.1.80.4489 Vaisampayana continued, Commanded by her father, then, Sarmishtha, accompanied by a thousand maidens, soon came, in a palanquin, out of her father's excellent mansion.
Mbh.1.80.4494 Sarmishtha answered, One must by all means contribute to the happiness of one's afflicted relatives.
Mbh.1.80.4496 Vaisampayana continued, When Sarmishtha thus promised to be Devayani's waiting-maid the latter, O king, then spoke unto her father thus, O best of all excellent Brahmanas, I am gratified.
Mbh.1.81.4502 And accompanied by Sarmishtha with her thousand maids she reached the same spot and began to wander freely.
Mbh.1.81.4506 And the king saw Devayani and Sarmishtha, and those other maidens also, all decked with celestial ornaments and full of voluptuous languor in consequence of the flower-honey they drank.
Mbh.1.81.4508 And she was waited upon by Sarmishtha who was gently kneading her feet.
Mbh.1.81.4515 She is Sarmishtha, the daughter of the Asura king Vrishaparvan'
Mbh.1.81.4529 Devayani answered, With my two thousand damsels and my waiting-maid Sarmishtha, I wait but your commands.
Mbh.1.81.4573 This other maiden, Vrishaparvan's daughter, Sarmishtha should ever be regarded by thee.
Mbh.1.81.4577 And having received from Sukra this rich treasure of the excellent Devayani with Sarmishtha and those two thousand maidens, and duly honoured also by Sukra himself and the Asuras, the best of monarchs, then, commanded by the high-souled Bhargava, returned to his capital with a joyous heart
Mbh.1.82.4579 And the monarch, directed by Devayani, established Vrishaparvan's daughter Sarmishtha in a mansion especially erected near the artificial woods of Asokas in his gardens.
Mbh.1.82.4580 And the king surrounded Vrishaparvan's daughter Sarmishtha with a thousand maids and honoured her by making every arrangement for her food and garments.
Mbh.1.82.4584 And when a thousand years had passed away, Vrishaparvan's daughter Sarmishtha having attained to puberty saw that her season had come.
Mbh.1.82.4594 Vaisampayana continued, While Sarmishtha was thus busy with her thoughts, the king wandering listlessly came to that very wood of Asokas, and beholding Sarmishtha before him, stood there in silence.
Mbh.1.82.4595 Then Sarmishtha of sweet smiles seeing the monarch before her with nobody to witness what might pass, approached him and said with joined palms, O son of Nahusha, no one can behold the ladies that dwell in the inner apartments of Soma, of Indra, of Vishnu, of Yama, of Varuna, and of thee!
Mbh.1.82.4604 Sarmishtha then said, It hath been said, O king, that it is not sinful to lie on the occasion of a joke, in respect of women sought to be enjoyed, on occasions of marriage, in peril of immediate death and of the loss of one's whole fortune.
Mbh.1.82.4612 Sarmishtha answered, O monarch, one may look upon her friend's husband as her own.
Mbh.1.82.4618 Sarmishtha then said, Absolve me, O king, from sin.
Mbh.1.82.4628 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by Sarmishtha, the monarch was persuaded into the truth of all she spoke.
Mbh.1.82.4629 He therefore, honoured Sarmishtha by protecting her virtue.
Mbh.1.82.4632 And it came to pass that Sarmishtha of sweet smiles and fair eyebrows conceived in consequence of that connection of hers with that best of monarchs.
Mbh.1.83.4634 SECTION LXXXIII Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, When Devayani of sweet smiles heard of the birth of this child, she became jealous, and O Bharata, Sarmishtha became an object of her unpleasant reflections.
Mbh.1.83.4636 Sarmishtha replied, A certain Rishi of virtuous soul and fully conversant with the Vedas came to me.
Mbh.1.83.4642 Sarmishtha replied, O thou of sweet smiles, in asceticism and energy, that Rishi is resplendent like the Sun himself.
Mbh.1.83.4643 Beholding him, I had not, any need to make these enquiries, Devayani then said, If this is true, if indeed, thou hast obtained thy child from such a superior Brahmana, then, O Sarmishtha, I have no cause of anger'
Mbh.1.83.4644 Vaisampayana continued, Having thus talked and laughed with each other, they separated, Devayani returning to the palace with the knowledge imparted to her by Sarmishtha.
Mbh.1.83.4646 And Sarmishtha, the daughter of Vrishaparvan, became through the royal sage the mother of three sons in all, named Drahyu, Anu, and Puru.
Mbh.1.83.4655 Those children then pointed at the king with their forefingers and spoke of Sarmishtha as their mother.
Mbh.1.83.4660 But Devayani, marking the affection of the children for the king learnt the secret and addressing Sarmishtha, said, How hast thou dared to do me an injury, being, as thou art, dependent on me?
Mbh.1.83.4662 Sarmishtha said, O thou of sweet smiles, all that I told thee of a Rishi is perfectly true.
Mbh.1.83.4678 I have been offended again by Sarmishtha, the daughter of Vrishaparvan.
Mbh.1.83.4687 He who, solicited in secret by a woman full of desire and in season, goeth not in unto her, loseth virtue and is called by the learned a killer of the embryo, O son of Bhrigu, for these reasons, and anxious to avoid sin, I went into Sarmishtha'
Mbh.1.95.5228 And Yayati had two wives, viz, Devayani, the daughter of Usanas, and Sarmishtha the daughter of Vrishaparvan.
Mbh.1.95.5229 Here occurs a sloka regarding Yayati's descendants, Devayani gave birth to Yadu and Turvasu; and Vrishaparvan's daughter, Sarmishtha gave birth to Druhyu, Anu, and Puru,
Mbh.7.61.2742 Having performed various sacrifices and virtuously begotten excellent offspring upon his wives Devayani, the daughter of Usanas and Sarmishtha, king Yayati, who was like unto a celestial, roved through the celestial woods at his own pleasure, like a second Vasava.
