MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.4 Ugrasrava, the son of Lomaharshana, surnamed Sauti, well-versed in the Puranas, bending with humility, one day approached the great sages of rigid vows, sitting at their ease, who had attended the twelve years' sacrifice of Saunaka, surnamed Kulapati, in the forest of Naimisha.
Mbh.1.1.8 Seeing that he was comfortably seated, and recovered from fatigue, one of the Rishis beginning the conversation, asked him, Whence comest thou, O lotus-eyed Sauti, and where hast thou spent the time?
Mbh.1.1.10 Accomplished in speech, Sauti, thus questioned, gave in the midst of that big assemblage of contemplative Munis a full and proper answer in words consonant with their mode of life.
Mbh.1.1.11 Sauti said, Having heard the diverse sacred and wonderful stories which were composed in his Mahabharata by Krishna-Dwaipayana, and which were recited in full by Vaisampayana at the Snake-sacrifice of the high-souled royal sage Janamejaya and in the presence also of that chief of Princes, the son of Parikshit, and having wandered about, visiting many sacred waters and holy shrines, I journeyed to the country venerated by the Dwijas twice-born and called Samantapanchaka where formerly was fought the battle between the children of Kuru and Pandu, and all the chiefs of the land ranged on either side.
Mbh.1.1.18 Sauti then said, Having bowed down to the primordial being Isana, to whom multitudes make offerings, and who is adored by the multitude; who is the true incorruptible one, Brahma, perceptible, imperceptible, eternal; who is both a non-existing and an existing-non-existing being; who is the universe and also distinct from the existing and non-existing universe; who is the creator of high and low; the ancient, exalted, inexhaustible one; who is Vishnu, beneficent and the beneficence itself, worthy of all preference, pure and immaculate; who is Hari, the ruler of the faculties, the guide of all things moveable and immoveable; I will declare the sacred thoughts of the illustrious sage Vyasa, of marvellous deeds and worshipped here by all.
Mbh.1.1.60 Sauti said, Brahma having thus spoken to Vyasa, retired to his own abode.
Mbh.1.1.69 I am continued Sauti acquainted with eight thousand and eight hundred verses, and so is Suka, and perhaps Sanjaya.
Mbh.1.1.78 Sauti continued, I will now speak of the undying flowery and fruitful productions of this tree, possessed of pure and pleasant taste, and not to be destroyed even by the immortals.
Mbh.1.1.89 Know that I, Sauti, have also repeated one hundred thousand verses.
Mbh.1.1.201 Sauti said, Dhritarashtra, bewailing his fate in these words, was overcome with extreme anguish and for a time deprived of sense; but being revived, he addressed Sanjaya in the following words.
Mbh.1.1.203 Sauti said, The wise son of Gavalgana Sanjaya then addressed the distressed lord of Earth while thus talking and bewailing, sighing like a serpent and repeatedly tainting, in words of deep import.
Mbh.1.1.226 Sauti said, The son of Gavalgana having in this manner administered comfort to the royal Dhritarashtra overwhelmed with grief for his sons, then restored his mind to peace.
Mbh.1.2.252 Sauti said, Listen, O ye Brahmanas, to the sacred descriptions I utter O ye best of men, ye deserve to hear of the place known as Samanta-panchaka.
Mbh.1.2.272 Sauti said, One chariot, one elephant, five foot-soldiers, and three horses form one Patti; three pattis make one Sena-mukha; three sena-mukhas are called a Gulma; three gulmas, a Gana; three ganas, a Vahini; three vahinis together are called a Pritana; three pritanas form a Chamu; three chamus, one Anikini; and an anikini taken ten times forms, as it is styled by those who know, an Akshauhini.
Mbh.1.2.570 Sauti continued, Eighteen Akshauhinis of troops came together for battle.
Mbh.1.3.592 SECTION III Paushya Parva Sauti said, Janamejaya, the son of Parikshit, was, with his brothers, attending his long sacrifice on the plains of Kurukshetra.
Mbh.1.3.942 Sauti said, The monarch Janamejaya, thus addressed, saluting that excellent Brahmana replied unto him, In cherishing these my subjects I do discharge the duties of my noble tribe.
Mbh.1.3.958 Sauti continued, The monarch, having heard these words, was enraged with Takshaka.
Mbh.1.4.963 SECTION IV Pauloma Parva UGRASRAVA SAUTI, the son of Lomaharshana, versed in the Puranas, while present in the forest of Naimisha, at the twelve years' sacrifice of Saunaka, surnamed Kulapati, stood before the Rishis in attendance.
Mbh.1.4.971 Further, O Sauti, in this sacrifice that learned Brahmana is the chief.
Mbh.1.4.976 Sauti said, Be it so.
Mbh.1.4.978 After a while that excellent Brahmana Saunaka having duly finished all his duties, and having propitiated the gods with prayers and the manes with oblations of water, came back to the place of sacrifice, where with Sauti seated before was the assembly of saints of rigid vows sitting at ease.
Mbh.1.5.985 Sauti answered, By me hath been acquired all that was formerly studied by the high-souled Brahmanas including Vaisampayana and repeated by them; by me hath been acquired all that had been studied by my father.
Mbh.1.5.998 Sauti replied, Bhrigu had a wife named Puloma whom he dearly loved.
Mbh.1.5.1015 Sauti continued, In this manner the Rakshasa asked the flaming god of fire again and again whether the lady was Bhrigu's wife.
Mbh.1.5.1023 Sauti continued, The Seven flamed god having heard these words of the Rakshasa became exceedingly distressed, being afraid of telling a falsehood and equally afraid of Bhrigu's curse.
Mbh.1.6.1031 SECTION VI Pauloma Parva continued Sauti said, O Brahmana, having heard these words from the god of fire, the Rakshasa assumed the form of a boar, and seizing the lady carried her away with the speed of the wind, even of thought.
Mbh.1.6.1050 Sauti continued, Bhrigu, upon hearing this account from Pauloma, became exceedingly enraged.
Mbh.1.7.1053 SECTION VII Pauloma Parva continued Sauti said, the god of fire enraged at the curse of Bhrigu, thus addressed the Rishi, What meaneth this rashness, O Brahmana, that thou hast displayed towards me?
Mbh.1.7.1095 Sauti continued, Then Agni replied to the Grandfather, So be it'
Mbh.1.8.1104 SECTION VIII Pauloma Parva continued Sauti said, O Brahmana, Chyavana, the son of Bhrigu, begot a son in the womb of his wife Sukanya.
Mbh.1.9.1134 SECTION IX Pauloma Parva continued Sauti said, While those illustrious Brahmanas were sitting around the dead body of Pramadvara, Ruru, sorely afflicted, retired into a deep wood and wept aloud.
Mbh.1.9.1154 Sauti said, Then the king of Gandharvas the father of Pramadvara and the celestial messenger, both of excellent qualities, went to the god Dharma the Judge of the dead and addressed him, saying, If it be thy will, O Dharmaraja, let the amiable Pramadvara, the betrothed wife of Ruru, now lying dead, rise up with a moiety of Ruru's life'
Mbh.1.9.1156 Sauti continued, And when Dharmaraja had said so, that maiden of superior complexion, Pramadvara, endued with a moiety of Ruru's life, rose as from her slumber.
Mbh.1.10.1168 SECTION X Pauloma Parva continued Sauti said, And Ruru, on hearing those words, replied, My wife, dear to me as life, was bit by a snake; upon which, I took, O snake, a dreadful vow, viz, that I would kill every snake that I might come across.
Mbh.1.10.1173 Sauti continued, And the Rishi Ruru hearing these words of the serpent, and seeing that it was bewildered with fear, albeit a snake of the Dundubha species, killed it not.
Mbh.1.11.1181 SECTION XI Pauloma Parva continued Sauti continued The Dundubha then said, In former times, I had a friend Khagama by name.
Mbh.1.12.1206 SECTION XII Pauloma Parva continued Sauti continued, Ruru then asked, O best of Dwijas, why was king Janamejaya bent upon destroying the serpents,
Mbh.1.12.1211 Sauti continued, Ruru ran about in search of the missing Rishi, and having failed to find him in all the woods, fell down on the ground, fatigued.
Mbh.1.13.1217 O Sauti, tell us in full the true story.
Mbh.1.13.1221 Sauti said, O best of speakers, this story of Astika is long.
Mbh.1.13.1224 Sauti said, This history first recited by Krishna-Dwaipayana, is called a Purana by the Brahmanas.
Mbh.1.14.1265 SECTION XIV Astika Parva continued Sauti said, That Brahmana of rigid vows then wandered over the earth for a wife but a wife found he not.
Mbh.1.15.1277 SECTION XV Astika Parva continued Sauti said, O foremost of persons acquainted with Brahma, the mother of the snakes had cursed them of old, saying, He that hath the Wind for his charioteer viz, Agni shall burn you all in Janamejaya's sacrifice'
Mbh.1.16.1290 SECTION XVI Astika Parva continued Saunaka said, O Sauti, relate once more in detail this history of the learned and virtuous Astika.
Mbh.1.16.1296 Sauti said, O thou that art blest with longevity, I shall narrate the history of Astika as I heard it from my father.
Mbh.1.16.1310 Sauti continued, O best of regenerate ones, after a long time, Kadru brought forth a thousand eggs, and Vinata two.
Mbh.1.17.1326 SECTION XVII Astika Parva continued Sauti said, O ascetic, about this time the two sisters saw approaching near, that steed of complacent appearance named Uchchaihsravas who was worshipped by the gods, that gem of steeds, who arose at the churning of the Ocean for nectar.
Mbh.1.17.1329 Sauti said, There is a mountain named Meru, of blazing appearance, and looking like a heap of effulgence.
Mbh.1.18.1343 SECTION XVIII Astika Parva continued Sauti said, There is a mountain called Mandara adorned with cloud-like peaks.
Mbh.1.18.1349 Sauti continued, O son of Bhrigu!
Mbh.1.19.1398 SECTION XIX Astika Parva continued Sauti said, Then the Daityas and the Danauas equipped with first-class armours and various weapons attacked the gods.
Mbh.1.20.1436 SECTION XX Astika Parva continued Sauti said, Thus have I recited to you the whole story of how Amrita was churned out of the Ocean, and the occasion on which the horse Uchchaihsravas of great beauty and incomparable prowess was obtained.
Mbh.1.20.1445 Sauti continued, Thus wagering with each other about menial service as a slave, the sisters went home, and resolved to satisfy themselves by examining the horse next day.
Mbh.1.21.1457 SECTION XXI Astika Parva continued Sauti said.
Mbh.1.22.1476 SECTION XXII Astika Parva continued Sauti said, The Nagas after consultation arrived at the conclusion that they should do their mother's bidding, for if she failed in obtaining her desire she might withdraw her affection and burn them all.
Mbh.1.23.1485 SECTION XXIII Astika Parva continued Sauti said, Having crossed the Ocean, Kadru of swift speed, accompanied by Vinata, soon alighted near the horse.
Mbh.1.24.1528 SECTION XXIV Astika Parva continued Sauti said, Then hearing of and beholding his own body, that bird of beautiful feathers diminished its size'
Mbh.1.24.1530 Sauti continued, Then that bird capable of going everywhere at will, that ranger of the skies capable of calling to his aid any measure of energy, bearing Aruna on his back, wended from his father's home and arrived at his mother's side on the other shore of the great ocean.
Mbh.1.24.1534 Sauti said, O sinless one, when Rahu was drinking nectar among the gods at the time of the churning of the ocean he was pointed out to the gods by Surya and Soma, and from that time he conceived an enmity towards those deities.
Mbh.1.24.1552 Sauti continued, Aruna, at the behest of the Grandsire, did all that he was ordered to do.
Mbh.1.25.1557 SECTION XXV Astika Parva continued Sauti said, Then that bird of great strength and energy and capable of going at will to every place repaired to his mother's side on the other shore of the great ocean.
Mbh.1.26.1596 SECTION XXVI Astika Parva continued Sauti said, And then Indra, the king of gods, having the best of horses for his bearer, thus adored by Kadru, covered the entire firmament with masses of blue clouds.
Mbh.1.27.1608 SECTION XXVII Astika Parva continued Sauti said, And then the Nagas drenched by that shower, became exceedingly glad.
Mbh.1.27.1631 Sauti continued, The snakes, hearing him, said, Bring thou amrita by force.
Mbh.1.28.1634 SECTION XXVIII Astika Parva continued Sauti said, Garuda, thus addressed by the snakes, then said unto his mother, I shall go to bring amrita, I desire to eat something in the way.
Mbh.1.28.1660 Sauti continued, Then Garuda, having heard the words of his mother, stretched his wings and ascended the skies.
Mbh.1.29.1668 SECTION XXIX Astika Parva continued Sauti continued, A certain Brahmana with his wife had entered the throat of that ranger of the skies.
Mbh.1.29.1675 Sauti continued, And then that Brahmana, accompanied by his wife of the Nishada caste, came out, and praising Garuda wended whatever way he liked.
Mbh.1.29.1720 Sauti continued, Having said so unto Garuda, he Kasyapa blessed him, saying, Blest be thou when thou art in combat with the gods.
Mbh.1.30.1736 SECTION XXX Astika Parva continued Sauti said, At the very touch by Garuda of great might with his feet, the branch of the tree broke as it was caught by Garuda.
Mbh.1.30.1750 Sauti continued, Kasyapa then propitiated, for the sake of his son, the Valakhilyas of exceeding good fortune and whose sins had been destroyed by ascetic penances'
Mbh.1.30.1754 Sauti continued, Those ascetics thus addressed by the illustrious Kasyapa, abandoned that bough and went to the sacred mountain of Himavat for purposes of ascetic penances.
Mbh.1.30.1785 Sauti continued, Indra, having heard these words, then spoke unto those that guarded the amrita, saying, A bird endued with great strength and energy has set his heart on taking away the amrita.
Mbh.1.31.1804 Sauti said, What thou askest me is, indeed, the subject of the Purana.
Mbh.1.31.1830 Sauti continued, Meanwhile, moved by the desire of offspring, the good daughter of Daksha, the vow-observing, amiable, and fortunate Vinata, her ascetic penances over, having purified herself with a bath in that season when connubial companionship might prove fruitful, approached her lord.
Mbh.1.32.1850 SECTION XXXII Astika Parva continued Sauti said, O foremost of Brahmanas, the gods having prepared for battle in that way, Garuda, the king of birds, soon came upon those wise ones.
Mbh.1.34.1918 SECTION XXXIV Astika Parva continued Sauti continued, Garuda then said, O Purandara, let there be friendship between thee and me as thou desirest.
Mbh.1.34.1924 Sauti continued, O Saunaka, after Garuda of great courage had thus spoken, Indra the chief of the gods, the wearer of the celestial crown, ever bent upon the good of the worlds, replied, saying, It is as thou sayest.
Mbh.1.34.1934 Sauti continued, Then Garuda, recollecting the sons of Kadru and remembering also the bondage of his mother caused by an act of deception owing to the well-known reason viz, the curse of Aruna, said, Although I have power over all creatures, yet I shall do your bidding.
Mbh.1.35.1962 Sauti said, O thou whose wealth is asceticism, from fear of being lengthy, I shall not mention the names of all the snakes.
Mbh.1.36.1975 Sauti said, The illustrious Sesha amongst them, of great renown, leaving his mother practised hard penances, living upon air and rigidly observing his vows.
Mbh.1.36.2010 Sauti continued, Then the elder brother of the king of the snakes, entering a hole, passed to the other side of the Earth, and holding her, supported with his head that goddess with her belt of seas passing all round'
Mbh.1.36.2012 Sauti continued, The snake, Sesha, the lord Ananta, of great prowess, lives underneath the Earth, alone supporting the world at the command of Brahman.
Mbh.1.37.2015 SECTION XXXVII Astika Parva continued Sauti said, That best of snakes, viz, Vasuki, hearing the curse of his mother, reflected how to render it abortive.
Mbh.1.37.2027 Sauti continued, Thus addressed all the offspring of Kadru assembled together, and, wise in counsels, submitted their opinions to one another.
Mbh.1.38.2063 SECTION XXXVIII Astika Parva continued Sauti said, Hearing the respective speeches of all the snakes, and hearing also the words of Vasuki, Elapatra began to address them, saying, That sacrifice is not one that can be prevented.
Mbh.1.39.2091 SECTION XXXIX Astika Parva continued Sauti said, O best of regenerate ones, hearing these words of Elapatra, all the serpents, in great delight, exclaimed, Well said, well said'
Mbh.1.39.2108 Sauti continued, Then the king of the snakes, Vasuki, afflicted with the curse of his mother, hearing these words of the Grandsire, and intending to bestow his sister of the Rishi Jaratkaru, commanded all the serpents, a large numbers of whom were ever attentive to their duties, to watch the Rishi Jaratkaru, saying, When the lord Jaratkaru will ask for a wife, come immediately and inform me of it.
Mbh.1.40.2112 Sauti said, Jara is said to mean waste, and Karu implies huge.
