Mbh.1.228.11168 And, O monarch, Pusha and Bhaga and Savitri, in wrath, rushed at Krishna and Partha with bows and scimitars in hand.
Mbh.2.7.329 O son of Pandu; and the rain-charged clouds, and the winds, and all the loud-sounding forces of heaven; the eastern point, the twenty seven fires conveying the sacrificial butter, Agni and Soma, and the fire of Indra, and Mitra, and Savitri, and Aryaman; Bhaga, Viswa the Sadhyas, the preceptor Vrihaspati, and also Sukra; and Vishwavasu and Chitrasena, and Sumanas, and also Taruna; the Sacrifices, the gifts to Brahmanas, the planets, and the stars, O Bharata, and the mantras that are uttered in sacrifices, all these are present there.

Mbh.3.3.241 Thou art Hansa, thou art Savitri, thou art Bhanu, Ansumalin, and Vrishakapi.
Mbh.3.81.3941 And Yajnaseni in obedience to the dictates of morality adhered to her lords, the sons of Pritha, like Savitri to the Vedas or the rays of the Sun to the peak of Meru.
Mbh.3.84.4503 There, O bull of the Bharata race, is still seen the foot-print of Savitri.
Mbh.3.110.5682 And when the crops had been restored, king Lomapada gave his daughter Santa in marriage to him, as the sun gave in marriage his daughter Savitri'
Mbh.3.179.8917 His mother then acts as its Savitri and his father officiates as priest.
Mbh.3.230.11622 And Gauri, Vidya, Gandhari, Kesini, and the lady called Mitra in company with Savitri, all proceeded in the train of Parvati, as also all the Vidyas presiding deities of all branches of knowledge that were created by the learned.
Mbh.3.263.12877 Or, hast thou come from the mansions of Dhatri, or of Vidhatri, or of Savitri, or of Vibhu, or of Sakra?
Mbh.3.291.14191 Markandeya said, Listen, O king, how the exalted merit of chaste ladies, O Yudhishthira, was completely obtained by a princess named Savitri.
Mbh.3.291.14201 And that best of kings, daily offering ten thousand oblations to the fire, recited Mantras in honour of Savitri and ate temperately at the sixth hour.
Mbh.3.291.14203 Then when the eighteen years were full, Savitri was pleased with him.
Mbh.3.291.14213 Savitri replied, O king, having already learnt this thy intention, I had spoken unto that lord, the Grandsire, about thy sons.
Mbh.3.291.14219 On Savitri vanishing away, the monarch entered his own city.
Mbh.3.291.14225 And as she had been bestowed with delight by the goddess Savitri by virtue of the oblations offered in honour of that goddess, both her father, and the Brahmanas named her Savitri.
Mbh.3.292.14251 SECTION CCLXLII Markandeya continued, On one occasion, O Bharata, when that king, the lord of the Madras, was seated with Narada in the midst of his court, engaged in conversation, Savitri, accompanied by the king's counsellors, came to her father's abode after having visited various sacred regions and asylums.
Mbh.3.292.14266 At these words of hers, Narada said, Alas, O king, Savitri hath committed a great wrong, since, not knowing, she hath accepted for her lord this Satyavan of excellent qualities!
Mbh.3.292.14290 Hearing these words of the sage, the king said, Come, O Savitri, go thou and choose another for thy lord, O beautiful damsel!
Mbh.3.292.14293 At these words of her father, Savitri said, The death can fall but once; a daughter can be given away but one; and once only can a person say, I give away!
Mbh.3.292.14299 Narada then said, O best of men, the heart of thy daughter Savitri wavereth not!
Mbh.3.292.14305 Narada said, May the bestowal of thy daughter Savitri be attended with peace!
Mbh.3.293.14317 And Aswapati said, O royal sage, this beautiful girl is my daughter named Savitri.
Mbh.3.293.14340 But the words spoken by Narada were present night and day in the mind of the sorrowful Savitri
Mbh.3.294.14342 And as the words that had been spoken by Narada were ever present in the mind of Savitri, she had counted the days as they passed.
Mbh.3.294.14344 And hearing of her vow, the king became exceedingly sorrow and rising up soothed Savitri and said these words, This vow that thou hast begun to observe, O daughter of a king, is exceedingly hard; for it is extremely difficult to fast for three nights together'
Mbh.3.294.14345 And hearing these words, Savitri said, Thou needst not be sorry, O father!
Mbh.3.294.14351 And Savitri continuing to fast began to look lean like a wooden doll.
Mbh.3.294.14352 And, O bull of the Bharata race, thinking that her husband would die on the morrow, the woe-stricken Savitri, observing a fast, spent that night in extreme anguish.
Mbh.3.294.14353 And when the Sun had risen about a couple of hand Savitri thinking within herself, To-day is that day, finished her morning rites, and offered oblations to the flaming fire.
Mbh.3.294.14355 And for the welfare of Savitri, all the ascetics dwelling in that hermitage, uttered the auspicious benediction that she should never suffer widowhood.
Mbh.3.294.14356 And Savitri immersed in contemplation accepted those words of the ascetics, mentally saying, So be it,
Mbh.3.294.14360 Thereat Savitri said, Now that I have completed the purposed vow, I will eat when the Sun goes down.
Mbh.3.294.14362 Markandeya continued, And when Savitri had spoken thus about her meal, Satyavan, taking his axe upon his shoulders, set out for the woods.
Mbh.3.294.14363 And at this, Savitri said unto her husband, It behoveth thee not to go alone!
Mbh.3.294.14370 Thus addressed, Savitri said, I do not feel langour because of the fast, nor do I feel exhaustion.
Mbh.3.294.14375 Markandeya continued, Thus addressed by her lord, Savitri of high vows saluted her father-in-law and mother-in-law and addressed them, saying, This my husband goeth to the forest for procuring fruits.
Mbh.3.294.14385 Hearing these words Dyumatsena said, Since Savitri hath been bestowed by her father as my daughter-in-law, I do not remember that she hath ever spoken any words couching a request.
Mbh.3.294.14388 Markandeya continued, Having received the permission of both, the illustrious Savitri, departed with her lord, in seeming smiles although her heart was racked with grief.
Mbh.3.294.14390 And Satyavan sweetly said unto Savitri, Behold these rivers of sacred currents and these excellent trees decked with flowers'
Mbh.3.294.14391 But the faultless Savitri continued to watch her lord in all his moods, and recollecting the words of the celestial sage, she considered her husband as already dead.
Mbh.3.295.14397 And afflicted with toil, he approached his beloved wife, and addressed her, saying, O Savitri, owing to this hard exercise my head acheth, and all my limbs and my heart also are afflicted sorely!
Mbh.3.295.14400 Hearing these words, Savitri quickly advancing, approached her husband, and sat down upon the ground, placing his head upon her lap.
Mbh.3.295.14406 And seeing him, Savitri gently placed her husband's head on the ground, and rising suddenly, with a trembling heart, spake these words in distressful accents, Seeing this thy superhuman form, I take thee to be a deity.
Mbh.3.295.14408 Thereat, Yama replied, O Savitri, thou art ever devoted to thy husband, and thou art also endued with ascetic merit.
Mbh.3.295.14414 At these words Savitri said, I had heard that thy emissaries come to take away mortals, O worshipful one!
Mbh.3.295.14423 Thereupon, with heart overwhelmed in grief, the exalted Savitri, ever devoted to her lord and crowned with success in respect of her vows, began to follow Yama.
Mbh.3.295.14424 And at this, Yama said, Desist, O Savitri!
Mbh.3.295.14428 Savitri replied, Whither my husband is being carried, or whither he goeth of his own accord, I will follow him thither.
Mbh.3.295.14443 Hearing these words, Savitri said, Deprived of his kingdom and bereft also of sight, my father-in-law leadeth a life of retirement in our sylvan asylum.
Mbh.3.295.14450 Savitri said, What weariness can I feel in the presence of my husband?
Mbh.3.295.14459 Savitri said, Sometime before, my wise and intelligent father-in-law was deprived of his kingdom.
Mbh.3.295.14469 Savitri said, Thou hast restrained all creatures by thy decrees, and it is by thy decrees that thou takest them away, not according to thy will.
Mbh.3.295.14478 At these words Savitri replied, That lord of earth, my father, is without sons.
Mbh.3.295.14484 Savitri said, Staying by the side of my husband, I am not conscious of the length of the way I have walked.
Mbh.3.295.14496 Savitri then said, Both of me and Satyavan's loins, begotten by both of us, let there be a century of sons possessed of strength and prowess and capable of perpetuating our race!
Mbh.3.295.14501 Thus addressed, Savitri said, They that are righteous always practise eternal morality!
Mbh.3.295.14514 Thus addressed, Savitri said, O bestower of honours, the boon thou hast already given me is incapable of accomplishment without union with my husband.
Mbh.3.295.14523 Markandeya continued, Thereupon saying, So be it, Vivaswat's son, Yama, the dispenser of justice, untied his noose, and with cheerful heart said these words to Savitri, Thus, O auspicious and chaste lady, is thy husband freed by me!
Mbh.3.295.14532 And having bestowed these boons on Savitri and having thus made her desist, Yama departed for his abode.
Mbh.3.295.14533 Savitri, after Yama had gone away, went back to the spot where her husband's ash-coloured corpse lay, and seeing her lord on the ground, she approached him, and taking hold of him, she placed his head on her lap and herself sat down on the ground.
Mbh.3.295.14534 Then Satyavan regained his consciousness, and affectionately eyeing Savitri again and again, like one come home after a sojourn in a strange land, he addressed her thus, Alas, I have slept long!
Mbh.3.295.14537 At these words of his, Savitri said, Thou hast, O bull among men, slept long on my lap!
Mbh.3.295.14550 Thereupon, Savitri addressed him, saying, The night deepens.
Mbh.3.295.14560 Then Savitri replied, In consequence of a conflagration having taken place in the forest today a withered tree standeth aflame, and the flames being stirred by the wind are discerned now and then.
Mbh.3.295.14589 And seeing her lord overwhelmed with sorrow the virtuous Savitri wiped away the tears from his eyes and said, If I have observed austerities, and have given away in charity, and have performed sacrifice, may this night be for the good of my father-in-law, mother-in-law and husband!
Mbh.3.295.14593 Therefore, O Savitri, proceed without delay.
Mbh.3.295.14596 The beautiful Savitri then rose and tying up her hair, raised her husband in her arms.
Mbh.3.295.14599 Then Savitri said unto him, Tomorrow thou mayst gather fruits.
Mbh.3.296.14616 And whenever they heard any sound, they stood rising their heads, anxiously thinking that their son was coming, and said, O yonder cometh Satyavan with Savitri'
Mbh.3.296.14622 Then a truthful Brahmana of the name of Suvarchas spake unto them, saying, Considering the austerities, self-restraint, and behaviour of his wife Savitri, there can be no doubt that Satyavan liveth'
Mbh.3.296.14631 And the Rishi said, Considering the auspicious marks that his wife Savitri beareth and all of which indicate immunity from widowhood, there can be no doubt that Satyavan liveth'
Mbh.3.296.14632 And Varadwaja said, Having regard to the ascetic merit, self-restraint, and conduct of his wife Savitri, there can be no doubt that Satyavan liveth'
Mbh.3.296.14633 And Dalbhya said, Since thou hast regained thy sight, and since Savitri hath gone away after completion of the vow, without taking any food, there can be no doubt that Satyavan liveth'
Mbh.3.296.14637 A little while after, Savitri with her husband Satyavan reached the hermitage during the night and entered it with a glad heart.
Mbh.3.296.14643 And Saivya, and Satyavan, and Savitri who stood apart, their hearts free from grief, sat down with the permission of them all.
Mbh.3.296.14648 It behoveth thee to tell us all about this' Thereupon, Satyavan said, With the permission of my father, I went to the woods with Savitri.
Mbh.3.296.14655 It, therefore, behoveth Savitri to relate it.
Mbh.3.296.14657 And, O Savitri, I know thee to be like the goddess Savitri herself in splendour.
Mbh.3.296.14661 At these words of Gautama Savitri said, It is as ye surmise.
Mbh.3.297.14681 And although those mighty sages again and again spake unto Dyumatsena of the high fortune of Savitri, yet they were never satisfied.
Mbh.3.297.14693 And surrounded by the soldiers, Saivya also accompanied by Savitri, went in a vehicle furnished with shining sheets and borne on the shoulders of men.
Mbh.3.297.14695 And after the lapse of a long time, Savitri gave birth to a century of sons, all warlike and unretreating from battle, and enhancing the fame of Salwa's race.
Mbh.3.297.14697 Thus, O son of Pritha, did Savitri raise from pitiable plight to high fortune, herself, and her father and mother, her father-in-law and mother-in-law, as also the race of her husband.
Mbh.3.297.14698 And like that gentle lady Savitri, the auspicious daughter of Drupada, endued with excellent character, will rescue you all
