MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.8.1.8 The Suta's son Karna, and king Suyodhana and Duhshasana and Shakuni, in special, could not compose themselves to sleep.
Mbh.8.4.94 Censuring also his own intelligence and that of Shakuni the son of Subala, the king, having reflected for a long time, began to tremble repeatedly.
Mbh.8.9.331 What, O sire, did Shakuni, the son of Subala, who had formerly been filled with joy after going through the match at dice and cheating the son of Pandu, say when he saw Karna slain?
Mbh.8.11.423 In the two eyes were the brave Shakuni and the mighty car-warrior Uluka.
Mbh.8.25.1073 Shakuni, filled with rage, pierced Sutasoma with many keen shafts, but failed to make the latter tremble like a torrent of water failing to produce any impression upon a mountain.
Mbh.8.25.1074 Beholding that great enemy of his father, Sutasoma covered Shakuni, O Bharata, with many thousands of arrows.
Mbh.8.25.1075 Shakuni, however, that warrior of sure aim and conversant with all methods of warfare, actuated by desire of battle, quickly cut off all those shafts with his own winged arrows.
Mbh.8.25.1076 Having checked those shafts with his own keen arrows in battle, Shakuni, filled with rage, struck Sutasoma with three arrows.
Mbh.8.25.1082 The warriors that were present there, as also the Siddhas in the firmament, were highly pleased at sight of that wonderful and incredible feat of Sutasoma, inasmuch as he contended on foot with Shakuni staying in his car.
Mbh.8.25.1083 Then Shakuni, with a number of broad-headed shafts of great impetuosity, keen and perfectly straight, cut off, O king, the bow of Sutasoma as also all his quivers.
Mbh.8.25.1085 That scimitar of the intelligent Sutasoma of the hue of the clear sky, as it was whirled by that hero, was regarded by Shakuni to be as fatal as the rod of Death.
Mbh.8.25.1091 With a razor-headed arrow of great sharpness, Shakuni then, O king, cut off that bright scimitar of his adversary as the latter careered in circles before him.
Mbh.8.25.1094 The fragment decked with gold and gems, cutting off the bow, with string, of the illustrious Shakuni, quickly fell down on the Earth.
Mbh.8.32.1456 Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and thyself and the valiant ruler of the Bhojas, and Shakuni the son of Subala, and Drona's son and myself, constituted the chief strength of our army.
Mbh.8.46.2516 Shakuni, and the mighty car-warrior Uluka, standing on the right of these, and accompanied by many fearless Gandhara horsemen armed with bright lances, and many mountaineers difficult to defeat, numerous as flights of locusts, and grimlooking as Pishacas, protected the Kaurava army.
Mbh.8.47.2622 Kripa and Kritavarma, and Shakuni the son of Subala, those heroes difficult of defeat in battle, accompanied by troops that were all cheerful, themselves filled with rage, and capable of smiting down thick ranks of cars, fought with the Koshalas, the Kasis, the Matsyas, the Karusas, the Kaikayas, and the Surasenas, all of whom were possessed of great courage.
Mbh.8.48.2660 Piercing Duhshasana with three arrows made wholly of iron, and Shakuni with six, he deprived both Uluka and his brother Patatri of their cars.
Mbh.8.50.2812 Then one of the wings of the army and its further wing, and Shakuni, the son of Subala, and the Kauravas well-armed turned against Bhimasena in that battle.
Mbh.8.51.2921 Then horsemen, despatched by Shakuni, respected by all brave men and armed with darts and swords and lances, rushed towards Bhima.
Mbh.8.54.3049 SECTION Sanjaya said, Then Kritavarma, and Kripa, and the son of Drona and the Suta's son, O sire, and Uluka, and Subala's son Shakuni, and the king himself, with his uterine brothers, beholding the Kuru army afflicted with the fear of Pandu's son, unable to stand together, like a vessel wrecked on the ocean, endeavoured to rescue it with great speed.
Mbh.8.61.3559 Satyaki proceeded against Shakuni, and the sons of Draupadi against the other Kauravas.
Mbh.8.61.3593 Satyaki, having pierced Shakuni with twenty keen arrows, easily cut off the standard of Subala's son with a broad-headed arrow.
Mbh.8.61.3596 With great speed then, he despatched with other shafts the steeds of Shakuni to Yama's abode.
Mbh.8.61.3597 Speedily alighting then, O bull among men, from his car, Shakuni, that mighty car-warrior, quickly ascended the car of Uluka.
Mbh.8.64.3744 The vast Dhartarashtra host, then, O king, was repeatedly broken by the heroic Pandavas inspired with desire of victory, in the very sight, O monarch, of thy sons, conversant with all modes of warfare, and of, Shakuni the son of Subala, and of Karna, O king!
Mbh.8.75.4551 The great Srinjaya car-warrior Uttamauja was engaged with Karna's son Sushena, while Sahadeva rushed against Shakuni, the king of the Gandharas, like a hungry lion against a mighty bull.
Mbh.8.77.4683 Seeing those feats achieved in battle by Bhimasena, Duryodhana, O monarch, addressing Shakuni, said, Vanquish, O uncle, the mighty Bhimasena in battle.
Mbh.8.77.4686 Approaching in that battle Bhima of terrible prowess, the heroic Shakuni checked him like the continent resisting the ocean.
Mbh.8.77.4688 Then Shakuni, O monarch, sped a number of cloth-yard shafts equipped with wings of gold and whetted on stone, at the left side of Bhima's chest.
Mbh.8.77.4691 The mighty Shakuni however, that scorcher of foes, O king, endued with great lightness of hands, cut off into seven fragments that terrible arrow as it coursed towards him.
Mbh.8.77.4704 Abandoning with speed that steedless car, Shakuni, that foremost of men, stood on the ground, with his bow ready drawn in his hands, his eyes red like blood in rage, and himself breathing heavily.
Mbh.8.77.4706 The valiant Bhima, baffling those shafts, cut off Shakuni's bow in rage and pierced Shakuni himself, with many keen arrows.
Mbh.8.77.4709 When that tiger among men, Shakuni was thus taken up on Duryodhana's car, the Dhartarashtra troops, turning their faces from battle, fled away on all sides inspired with fear on that occasion of great terror due to Bhimasena.
Mbh.8.78.4777 At that time, the king Duryodhana, and Duhshasana, and Kripa, the son of Sharadvata, and Ashvatthama, and Kritavarma, and Shakuni also of great might, slaughtered the Pandava warriors in hundreds and thousands.
Mbh.8.83.5092 Our sleep at the palace at Pramanakoti, the administration of deadly poison to our food, the bites of black cobras, the setting fire to the house of lac, the robbing of our kingdom by gambling, our exile in the woods, the cruel seizure of Draupadi's beautiful tresses, the strokes of shafts and weapons in battle, our miseries at home, the other kinds of sufferings we endured at Virata's abode, all these woes borne by us through the counsels of Shakuni and Duryodhana and Radha's son, proceeded from thee as their cause.
Mbh.8.85.5181 The prince of the Kulindas then, with that elephant of his which was capable of slaying the foremost of warriors with its tusks and body, rushed impetuously towards Shakuni for slaying him.
Mbh.8.85.5182 The mountaineer succeeded in afflicting Shakuni greatly.
Mbh.8.91.5780 Thyself and Suyodhana and Duhshasana and Shakuni, the son of Subala, had caused Draupadi, clad in a single piece of raiment, to be brought into the midst of the assembly.
Mbh.8.91.5782 When at the assembly Shakuni, an adept in dice, vanquished Kunti's son Yudhishthira who was unacquainted with it, whither had this virtue of thine gone?
Mbh.8.93.5943 The two sons of Madri, and Satyaki, filled with joy, rushed with speed against Shakuni and slaughtered the troops of Subala's son.
Mbh.8.93.5944 Having slain with keen shafts his cavalry and elephants in that encounter, they rushed impetuously against Shakuni himself, upon which a great battle took place.
Mbh.8.95.6079 Surrounded by a gandharvas, Shakuni, beholding the son of Adhiratha slain, proceeded quickly towards the encampment.
Mbh.9.1.32 Similarly, Subala's son Shakuni, and Uluka, O tiger among men, that valiant son of the gamester Shakuni, have been slain.
Mbh.9.2.87 Bhagadatta and Kripa and Shalya and the two princes of Avanti and Jayadratha and Bhurishrava and Sala and Somadatta and Bahlika and Ashvatthama and the chief of the Bhojas and the mighty prince of Magadha and Vrihadvala and the ruler of the Kasi and Shakuni the son of Subala and many thousands of Mlecchas and Sakas and Yavanas, and Sudakshina the ruler of the Kambojas and the king of the Trigartas and the grandsire Bhishma and Bharadwaja's son and Gotama's son Kripa and Srutayush and Ayutayush and Satayush of great energy, and Jalasandha and Rishyasringa's son and the Rakshasa Alayudha, and the mighty-armed Alambusa and the great car-warrior Subala, these and numerous other kings, O best of monarchs, have taken up arms for my sake, prepared to cast away their very lives in great battle, stationed on the field amidst these, and surrounded by my brothers, I will fight against all the Parthas and the Pancalas and the Cedis, O tiger among kings, and the sons of Draupadi and Satyaki and Kunti-Bhoja and the rakshasa Ghatotkaca.
Mbh.9.2.106 When Shakuni, the son of Subala, and the mighty Uluka, called the gamester's son, that hero at the head of his forces, have been slain, what can it be but destiny?
Mbh.9.3.184 The twin sons of Madri and the mighty car-warrior Satyaki, all endued with great strength, cheerfully rushed against Shakuni with great speed from desire of slaying him.
Mbh.9.3.185 Having slain with keen shafts the numerous cavalry of Shakuni, those Pandava heroes quickly rushed against Shakuni himself, whereupon a fierce battle was fought there.
Mbh.9.6.372 Indeed, Shalya and Chitrasena and the mighty car-warrior Shakuni and Ashvatthama and Kripa and Kritavarma of the Satwata race, and Sushena and Arishtasena and Dhritasena of great energy and Jayatsena and all these kings passed the night there.
Mbh.9.8.492 Surrounded by a large force of cavalry and other troops, Subala's son Shakuni, as also the mighty car-warrior Uluka, proceeded with the others.
Mbh.9.8.498 The two sons of Madri, accompanied by their troops, proceeded against Shakuni and the great car-warrior Uluka at the head of their forces.
Mbh.9.11.675 Uluka also of mighty energy, and Shakuni the son of Subala, and the mighty car-warrior Ashvatthama with smiles on his lips, and all thy sons protected Shalya by every means in that battle.
Mbh.9.11.678 Shakuni proceeded against the sons of Draupadi, and Ashvatthama against the twins.
Mbh.9.16.908 Sahadeva checked Shakuni with all his forces.
Mbh.9.16.951 The Pancala prince Dhrishtadyumna, Satyaki, and the two sons of Madri by Pandu, received Shakuni and the other Kuru heroes around.
Mbh.9.18.1131 Then Shakuni, the son of the Gandhara king, possessed of eloquence, O monarch, said unto Duryodhana these words, How is this that we are standing here, while the Madraka host is being slaughtered before our eyes?
Mbh.9.18.1137 Shakuni said, Brave warriors, when excited with rage in battle, do not obey the command of their leaders.
Mbh.9.18.1142 Thinking after the manner of Shakuni, all the Kauravas then proceeded to that place where the Madras were.
Mbh.9.19.1194 The two sons of Madri and the mighty carwarrior Satyaki proceeded against Shakuni.
Mbh.9.19.1243 The two sons of Madri, and Satyaki, rushed against Shakuni, and the other Pandava heroes, smiling, rushed impetuously against thy forces
Mbh.9.21.1345 The heroic Shakuni assailed Yudhishthira in that battle.
Mbh.9.21.1348 Then king Yudhishthira the just, riding upon another car came back to battle, and having pierced Shakuni at first with nine arrows, once more pierced him with five.
Mbh.9.21.1353 The heroic Nakula, however, in that battle, resisted the son of Shakuni with a thick shower of arrows from every side.
Mbh.9.21.1406 Then Shakuni, the son of the Gandhara king, said, Fight all of ye in front!
Mbh.9.21.1417 During the progress of that great carnage, Shakuni, aided by that force, put forth his valour and assailed the Pandava army at the rear, slaughtering it with his keen shafts.
Mbh.9.21.1422 Aided by the son of Draupadi, proceed towards him and slay Shakuni, the son of Subala!
Mbh.9.21.1425 Supported by these, slay Shakuni
Mbh.9.21.1426 At this, elephants ridden by combatants armed with the bow, and horses, and the valiant Sahadeva, and foot-soldiers, and the sons of Draupadi all rushed against Shakuni difficult of defeat in battle.
Mbh.9.21.1447 Having fought for a little while, Shakuni, the son of Subala, O monarch, went away from that spot with the remnant of his cavalry numbering Similarly,
Mbh.9.21.1451 Having retreated, Shakuni is now within his own division.
Mbh.9.21.1455 After all those had gone away, Shakuni, the son of Subala, excited with wrath, once more fell upon Dhrishtadyumna's division and began to strike it.
Mbh.9.21.1474 At this, the Pandavas, inspired with desires of victory and endued with foot-soldiers and elephants and cavalry, all with uplifted weapons, desirous of reaching the end of the hostilities, the Pandavas, forming a wall, encompassed Shakuni on all sides, and began to strike him with diverse kinds of weapons.
Mbh.9.22.1483 Hearing these words of Shakuni, O bull of Bharata's race, they answered saying, Yonder stayeth that great car-warrior, the Kuru king, there where that large umbrella of splendour equal to that of the full moon, is visible, there where those car-warriors, clad in mail, are staying, there where that loud noise, deep as the roar of clouds, is being heard!
Mbh.9.22.1485 Thus addressed by those brave warriors, Subala's son Shakuni, O king, proceeded to that spot where thy son was staying, surrounded on all sides by unretreating heroes.
Mbh.9.22.1486 Beholding Duryodhana stationed in the midst of that car-force, Shakuni, gladdening all those car-warriors of thine, O king cheerfully said these words unto Duryodhana.
Mbh.9.25.1693 Only five hundred horses from the remnant of the troops of Shakuni, the son of Subala, and of cars, only two hundred still remain, O Janardana!
Mbh.9.25.1714 Susarman and Shakuni encountered Kiritin.
Mbh.9.26.1744 SECTION Sanjaya said, During the progress of that battle which was so destructive of men and steeds and elephants, Subala's son, Shakuni, O king, rushed against Sahadeva.
Mbh.9.26.1745 The valiant Sahadeva, as Shakuni rushed quickly towards him, sped showers of swift arrows at that warrior as numerous as a flight of insects.
Mbh.9.26.1746 At that time, Uluka also encountered Bhima and pierced him with ten arrows, Shakuni, meanwhile, O monarch, having pierced Bhima with three arrows, covered Sahadeva with ninety.
Mbh.9.26.1762 Frightened at that roar, all the followers of Shakuni, with their steeds and elephants, precipitately fled away in fear.
Mbh.9.26.1771 Comforted a little, the invincible Sahadeva, O monarch, pierced Shakuni with ten arrows and his steeds with three.
Mbh.9.26.1773 Invincible in battle, Shakuni, however, took up another bow and pierced Nakula with sixty arrows and then Bhimasena with seven.
Mbh.9.26.1775 Bhimasena in that encounter pierced Uluka with many keen arrows and Shakuni with four and sixty, and each of the other warriors who fought around them, with three arrows.
Mbh.9.26.1779 Beholding his son slain, Shakuni, O Bharata, with voice choked with tears and drawing deep breaths, recollected the words of Vidura.
Mbh.9.26.1780 Having reflected for a moment with tearful eyes, Shakuni, breathing heavily, approached Sahadeva and pierced him with three arrows.
Mbh.9.26.1782 Seeing his bow cut off, O king, Shakuni, the son of Subala, took up a formidable scimitar and hurled it at Sahadeva.
Mbh.9.26.1784 Beholding his sword cut in twain, Shakuni took up a formidable mace and hurled it at Sahadeva.
Mbh.9.26.1795 Recollecting, O king, that Shakuni, who had fallen to his share, was still alive, Sahadeva, on his car adorned with gold, pursued that warrior.
Mbh.9.26.1803 Saying these words, O monarch, Sahadeva of great strength, that tiger among men, filled with rage, rushed impetuously against Shakuni.
Mbh.9.26.1804 Approaching his enemy, the invincible Sahadeva, that foremost of warriors, forcibly drawing his bow and as if burning his foe with wrath, pierced Shakuni with ten arrows and his steeds with four.
Mbh.9.26.1807 Once again, O monarch, the valiant Sahadeva sped at Shakuni an irresistible shower of arrows.
Mbh.9.26.1813 Beholding Shakuni lying headless on the ground and all his limbs drenched with gore, thy warriors, rendered powerless with fear, fled away on all sides with weapons in their hands.
Mbh.9.26.1815 Having thrown down Shakuni from his car, the Pandavas, O Bharata, became filled with delight.
Mbh.9.26.1817 All of them, with glad hearts, worshipped Sahadeva, and said, By good luck, O hero, Shakuni of wicked soul, that man of evil course, hath, with his son, been slain by thee
Mbh.9.27.1930 Yuyutsu then said, After the fall of Shakuni, O sire, with all his kinsmen and friends, king Duryodhana abandoning the steed he rode, fled away, in fear towards the east.
Mbh.9.29.2078 Relying upon Karna, as also upon Shakuni the son of Subala, thou hadst regarded thyself immortal and hadst, from folly, failed to understand thy own self!
Mbh.9.29.2119 I do not, like Shakuni, feel any compassion for thee, O king, for such words as these!
Mbh.9.30.2173 Today I shall free myself from the debt I owe to the many illustrious Kshatriyas that have fallen for me, to Bahlika and Drona and Bhishma and the high-souled Karna, to the heroic Jayadratha and Bhagadatta, to Shalya the ruler of the Madras and Bhurishrava, to my sons, O chief of Bharata's race, and Shakuni the son of Subala, to all my friends and well-wishers and kinsmen!
Mbh.9.31.2253 Thou hast, therefore, once more allowed a wretched game of chance to commence as that one in former days between thyself and Shakuni, O monarch!
Mbh.9.31.2297 Today king Dhritarashtra also, hearing of his son's slaughter, will remember all those wrongs that he did unto us arising from the suggestions of Shakuni
Mbh.9.31.2311 Yonder Shakuni also, the root of these hostilities, hath been slain in battle!
Mbh.9.54.3904 Subala's son Shakuni, too, that root of these hostilities, hath been slain!
Mbh.9.58.4222 All these wretches headed by Duhshasana, who used to utter cruel words, as also those other foes of thine, the son of Radha, and Shakuni, have been slain!
Mbh.9.59.4277 Solicited by me, O fool, thou didst not, from avarice, give the Pandavas their paternal share, acting according to the counsels of Shakuni!
Mbh.9.62.4489 Breathing heavily, he then addressed me, saying, Alas, I who had Santanu's son Bhishma for my protector, and Karna, that foremost of all wielders of weapons and Gotama's son, Shakuni, and Drona, that first of all wielders of arms, and Ashvatthama, and the heroic Shalya, and Kritavarma, alas, even I have come to this plight!
Mbh.9.62.4528 I am now like a moneyless wayfarer and shall follow in the wake of Drona who has already gone to heaven, of Karna and Shalya, of Vrishasena of great energy, of Shakuni the son of Subala, of Jalasandha of great valour, of king Bhagadatta, of Somadatta's son, that mighty bowman, of Jayadratha, the king of the Sindhus, of all my brothers headed by Duhshasana and equal unto myself, of Duhshasana's son of great prowess, and of Lakshmana, my son, and thousands of others that fought for me.
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.11.8.353 Shakuni became his maternal uncle and Karna his great friend.
Mbh.11.14.577 Through the fault of Duryodhana and of Shakuni the son of Subala, and through the action of Karna and Duhshasana, extermination of the Kurus hath taken place.
Mbh.11.18.794 On that occasion, O Krishna, I said unto king Duryodhana, O son, cast off from thy side the wrathful Shakuni.
Mbh.11.24.985 There the mighty Shakuni, the chief of gandharvas, of prowess incapable of being baffled, hath been slain by Sahadeva, the maternal uncle by the sisters son!
Mbh.11.24.992 Behold, O Krishna, a large number of birds is now sitting around Shakuni.
Mbh.11.24.994 This fire of hostility with the Pandavas had been ignited by Shakuni for the destruction of my children as also of himself and his followers and kinsmen.
Mbh.11.26.1090 They properly burned upon those fires that blazed forth with libations of clarified butter in torrents over them, the bodies of Duryodhana and his hundred brothers, of Shalya, and king Bhurishrava; of king Jayadratha and Abhimanyu, O Bharata; of Duhshasanas son and Lakshmana and king Dhrishtaketu; of Vrihanta and Somadatta and the hundreds of Srinjayas; of king Kshemadhanva and Virata and Drupada; of Shikhandi the prince of Pancalas, and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishatas race; of the valiant Yudhamanyu and Uttamauja; of the ruler of the Kosalas, the sons of Draupadi, and Shakuni the son of Subala; of Acala and Vrishaka, and king Bhagadatta; of Karna and his son of great wrath; of those great bowmen, the Kekaya princes, and those mighty car-warriors, the Trigartas; of Ghatotkaca the prince of rakshasas, and the brother of Vaka, of Alambusha, the foremost of rakshasas, and king Jalasandha; and of hundreds and thousands of other kings.
Mbh.18.5.229 Dhrishtaketu and Jayatsena and king Satyajit, the sons of Duryodhana, and Shakuni the son of Subala, Karnas sons of great prowess, king Jayadratha, Ghatotkaca and others whom thou hast not mentioned, the other heroic kings of blazing formstell me for what period they remained in Heaven.
Mbh.18.5.251 Shakuni obtained absorption into Dwapara, and Dhrishtadyumna into the deity of fire.
