MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.9.1.14 Having duly made Shalya the generalissimo of his forces, that bull among kings, O monarch, proceeded for battle, accompanied by that unslaughtered remnant of his forces.
Mbh.9.1.16 Then Shalya, O monarch, having made a great carnage in battle at last lost a large number of his troops and was slain by Yudhishthira at midday.
Mbh.9.1.31 The ruler of the Madras, Shalya, hath 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.9.2.116 When Duryodhana had been slain, when Shalya has been slain, when Duhshasana and Vivingsati and the mighty Vikarna have been slain, how shall I be able to bear the roars of that Bhimasena who hath alone slain a hundred sons of mine in battle?
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.9.6.374 All of them then, O king, who were resolved on battle, duly worshipped the king and said unto him, in the presence of Shalya, these words, It behoveth thee to fight with the enemy, after having made some one the generalissimo of thy army, protected by whom in battle we will vanquish our foes
Mbh.9.6.384 Thus addressed, the son of Drona answered, Let Shalya become the leader of our army.
Mbh.9.6.389 After Drona's son had said these words, all the kings stood, surrounding Shalya, and cried victory to him.
Mbh.9.6.391 Then Duryodhana, alighting from his car, joined his hands and addressing Shalya, that rival of Drona and Bhishma in battle, who was on his car, said these words, O thou that art devoted to friends, that time has now come for thy friends when intelligent men examine persons in the guise of friends as to whether they are true friends or otherwise.
Mbh.9.6.394 Shalya answered, I will, O king of the Kurus, accomplish that which thou askest me to accomplish.
Mbh.9.7.400 SECTION Sanjaya said, Hearing these words of the Kuru king, the valiant monarch Shalya, O king, said these words unto Duryodhana in reply, O mighty-armed Duryodhana, listen to me, O foremost of eloquent men.
Mbh.9.7.410 Thus addressed by Shalya, king Duryodhana cheerfully poured sanctified water, without losing any time, O best of the Bharatas, on the ruler of the Madras, in the midst of his troops, according to the rites ordained in the scriptures, O monarch.
Mbh.9.7.411 After Shalya had been invested with the command, loud leonine roars arose among thy troops and diverse musical instruments also, O Bharata, were beat and blown.
Mbh.9.7.413 And all of them praised the royal Shalya, that ornament of battle, saying, Victory to thee, O king.
Mbh.9.7.419 Shalya said, Today, O king, I will either slay all the Pancalas with the Pandavas in battle, or, slain by them, proceed to heaven.
Mbh.9.7.426 Sanjaya continued, After Shalya had been invested with the command, O giver of honours, no one among thy troops, O bull of Bharata's race, any longer felt any grief on account of Karna.
Mbh.9.7.430 Hearing those shouts of thy army, king Yudhishthira, addressing him of Vrishni's race, said these words, in the hearing of all the Kshatriyas, The ruler of the Madras, Shalya, that great bowman who is highly regarded by all the warriors hath, O Madhava, been made the leader of his forces by Dhritarashtra's son.
Mbh.9.7.438 I do not, O ruler of men, even upon reflection, find the warrior who may be a match for Shalya while engaged in fight.
Mbh.9.7.444 For this, slay Shalya in battle, like Maghavat slaying Samvara.
Mbh.9.7.452 Having crossed the fathomless oceans represented by Bhishma and Drona and Karna, do not sink, with thy followers, in the print of a cow's hoof represented by Shalya.
Mbh.9.8.468 Then all thy warriors, with Kripa and Kritavarma and Drona's son and Shalya and Subala's son and the other kings that were yet alive, met thy son, and arrived at this understanding, that none of them would individually and alone fight with the Pandavas.
Mbh.9.8.475 Tell me now of the fall of Shalya and of my son.
Mbh.9.8.476 How, indeed, O Sanjaya, was Shalya slain by king Yudhishthira the just?
Mbh.9.8.479 The hope became strong, O king, in the breasts of thy sons that, after Drona and Bhishma and the Suta's son had been overthrown, Shalya, O sire, would slay all the Parthas in battle.
Mbh.9.8.486 Protected by that car, that hero, that brave crusher of foes Shalya, stood, O monarch, dispelling the fears of thy sons.
Mbh.9.8.494 Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandi and the mighty car-warrior Satyaki proceeded with great speed against the army of Shalya.
Mbh.9.8.495 Then king Yudhishthira, accompanied by his troops, rushed against Shalya alone, from desire of slaughtering him, O bull of Bharata's race.
Mbh.9.9.553 Exceedingly wonderful and terrible, O monarch, was the manner in which those heroes, unitedly and as separate bodies, then fought with Shalya.
Mbh.9.10.567 Shalya fell suddenly upon the mighty host of the Pandavas.
Mbh.9.10.569 Indeed, the large force of the Pandavas, coming against Shalya, O sire, stood still in that battle, like the rushing sea upon encountering a mountain.
Mbh.9.10.626 Rallying his host, O king, Shalya stood fearlessly in battle, uttering loud leonine roars and causing his bow to twang fiercely.
Mbh.9.11.646 Beholding that army weakened and helpless like a cow sunk in mire, Shalya, desirous of rescuing it, proceeded against the Pandava army.
Mbh.9.11.659 Of soul incapable of being depressed, Shalya then poured dense showers of arrows on Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti like the thousand-eyed Indra pouring rain in torrents.
Mbh.9.11.663 Multitudinous as swarms of bees or flights of locusts, the shafts of Shalya were seen to fall like thunderbolts from the clouds.
Mbh.9.11.667 The Pandava army, thus slaughtered by Shalya, ran towards Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti for protection.
Mbh.9.11.668 Possessed of great lightness of hand, Shalya, having in that battle crushed them with whetted arrows, began to afflict Yudhishthira with a dense shower of shafts.
Mbh.9.11.669 Beholding Shalya impetuously rushing towards him with horsemen and foot-soldiers, king Yudhishthira, filled with wrath, checked him with keen shafts, even as an infuriate elephant is checked with iron-hooks.
Mbh.9.11.670 Then Shalya sped a terrible arrow at Yudhishthira that resembled a snake of virulent poison.
Mbh.9.11.672 Then Vrikodara, filled with wrath, pierced Shalya with seven arrows, and Sahadeva pierced him with five, and Nakula with ten.
Mbh.9.11.673 The five sons of Draupadi poured upon that foe-slaying hero, the impetuous Artayani Shalya, showers of arrows like a mass of clouds pouring rain upon a mountain.
Mbh.9.11.674 Beholding Shalya struck by the Parthas on every side, both Kritavarma and Kripa rushed in wrath towards that spot.
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.9.11.691 Shalya also, excited with rage, O king, slaughtered many Somakas and Pandavas, and once more afflicted Yudhishthira with many keen shafts.
Mbh.9.11.692 Then the valiant Bhima, biting his nether lip, and infuriate with rage, took up his mace in that battle, and aimed it at Shalya for the latter's destruction.
Mbh.9.11.693 Resembling the very bludgeon of Yama, impending upon the head of the foe like kala-ratri Death Night, exceedingly destructive of the lives of elephants and steeds and human beings, twined round with cloth of gold, looking like a blazing meteor, equipped with a sling, fierce as a she-snake, hard as thunder, and made wholly of iron, smeared with sandal-paste and other unguents like a desirable lady, smutted with marrow and fat and blood, resembling the very tongue of Yama, producing shrill sounds in consequence of the bells attached to it, like unto the thunder of Indra, resembling in shape a snake of virulent poison just freed from its slough, drenched with the juicy secretions of elephants, inspiring hostile troops with terror and friendly troops with joy, celebrated in the world of men, and capable of riving mountain summits, that mace, with which the mighty son of Kunti had in Kailasa challenged the enraged Lord of Alaka, the friend of Maheshvara, that weapon with which Bhima, though resisted by many, had in wrath slain a large number of proud Guhyakas endued with powers of illusion on the breasts of Gandhamadana for the sake of procuring Mandara flowers for doing what was agreeable to Draupadi, uplifting that mace which was rich with diamonds and jewels and gems and possessed of eight sides and celebrated as Indra's thunder, the mighty-armed son of Pandu now rushed against Shalya.
Mbh.9.11.694 With that mace of awful sound, Bhima, skilled in battle, crushed the four steeds of Shalya that were possessed of great fleetness.
Mbh.9.11.695 Then the heroic Shalya, excited with wrath in that battle, hurled a lance at the broad chest of Bhima and uttered a loud shout.
Mbh.9.11.697 Vrikodara, however, fearlessly plucking out the weapon, pierced therewith the driver of Shalya in the chest.
Mbh.9.11.700 Beholding his own feat thus counteracted, Shalya became filled with wonder.
Mbh.9.12.703 SECTION Sanjaya said, Seeing his driver fallen, Shalya, O king, quickly took up his mace made wholly of iron and stood immovable as a bull.
Mbh.9.12.704 Bhima, however, armed with his mighty mace, rushed impetuously towards Shalya who then looked like the blazing Yuga-fire, or the Destroyer armed with the noose, or the Kailasa mountain with its formidable crest, or Vasava with his thunder, or Mahadeva with his trident, or an infuriate elephant in the forest.
Mbh.9.12.711 The mace of Shalya, wrapped round with a resplendent cloth of gold that looked like a sheet of fire, inspired the spectators with dread.
Mbh.9.12.714 Similarly, struck by Bhima with his mace, the mace of Shalya produced a shower of blazing coals which seemed exceedingly wonderful.
Mbh.9.12.718 Similarly, though struck repeatedly with the force of Bhima's mace, Shalya, O king, moved not, like a mountain assailed by an elephant with his tusks.
Mbh.9.12.729 Then the mighty Kripa, taking up Shalya, that bull among the Madras, on his own car, quickly bore him away from the field of battle.
Mbh.9.12.753 Then Shalya, O monarch, desirous of slaying him, pierced king Yudhishthira the just, that mighty car-warrior with many sharp arrows.
Mbh.9.12.755 Resisting the son of Pandu with his shafts, Shalya of great fame, filled with rage and desirous of slaying his adversary, pierced him in that battle with innumerable arrows equipped with Kanka feathers.
Mbh.9.12.759 When the two protectors of his car-wheels were thus slain by the high-souled son of Pandu, Shalya, O king, slew five and twenty warriors among the Cedis.
Mbh.9.12.761 While Shalya was thus careering in that battle, that best of kings, the son of Pritha, sped at him many shafts that resembled snakes of virulent poison.
Mbh.9.12.763 We saw the standard of Shalya, which was thus cut off by the son of Pandu in that great battle, fall down like a riven mountain summit.
Mbh.9.12.765 That bull amongst Kshatriyas, Shalya of immeasurable soul, poured over the Kshatriyas in that battle dense showers of arrows like the deity of the clouds pouring torrents of rain.
Mbh.9.12.768 The mighty car-warrior Shalya, in that battle, filled with rage, shrouded Yudhishthira with straight shafts.
Mbh.9.13.770 SECTION Sanjaya said, When king Yudhishthira the just was thus afflicted by the ruler of Madras, Satyaki and Bhimasena and the two sons of Madri by Pandu, encompassing Shalya with their cars, began to afflict him in that battle.
Mbh.9.13.771 Beholding the unsupported Shalya thus afflicted by those great car-warriors and seeing him successfully repel those attacks, loud sounds of applause were heard, and the Siddhas who witnessed the encounter became filled with delight.
Mbh.9.13.773 Then Bhimasena in that encounter, having pierced Shalya who had become as his name implied an irresistible dart in prowess, with one arrow, next pierced him with seven.
Mbh.9.13.774 Satyaki, desirous of rescuing the son of Dharma, pierced Shalya with a hundred arrows and uttered a loud leonine roar.
Mbh.9.13.779 Filled with great rage, he then struck his adversary's driver with a straight shaft in that battle and then Shalya himself once more with three.
Mbh.9.13.782 Shalya, however, quickly pierced in return each of those great bowmen with five arrows, O king, which feat seemed exceedingly wonderful.
Mbh.9.13.784 Taking up another bow, that great car-warrior, the son of Dharma, covered Shalya, his steeds, and driver, and standard, and car, with many arrows.
Mbh.9.13.785 Thus shrouded in that battle by the son of Dharma with his shafts, Shalya struck the former with ten keen arrows.
Mbh.9.13.787 At this, Shalya cut off with a razor-faced arrow the formidable bow of Satyaki, and pierced each of the other Pandava warriors with three arrows.
Mbh.9.13.788 Filled with rage, O monarch, Satyaki of unbaffled prowess then hurled at Shalya a lance equipped with a golden staff and decked with many jewels and gems.
Mbh.9.13.791 With a number of broad-headed arrows Shalya cut off the lance hurled by Satyaki.
Mbh.9.13.797 At this, Shalya, O monarch, excited with rage, deeply pierced all of them with ten arrows, like persons piercing mighty elephants with sharp-pointed lances.
Mbh.9.13.798 Thus checked in that battle by the ruler of the Madras, O Bharata, those slayers of foes became unable to stay in front of Shalya.
Mbh.9.13.799 King Duryodhana, beholding the prowess of Shalya, regarded the Pandavas, the Pancalas, and the Srinjayas as already slain.
Mbh.9.13.801 Nakula and Sahadeva and Satyaki of great might, encompassing Shalya, shot their arrows at him from every side.
Mbh.9.13.804 When that brave and mighty car-warrior, that protector of Shalya's car-wheel, was thus slain, Shalya of great strength covered the Pandava troops with showers of arrows.
Mbh.9.13.809 We then beheld the downpour of gold-winged arrows shot by Shalya coursing through the welkin like a flight of locusts.
Mbh.9.13.813 Afflicting with vigour all the Pandava warriors with his shafts from every side, O sire, Shalya shrouded king Yudhishthira the just and roared repeatedly like a lion.
Mbh.9.13.814 The mighty car-warriors of the Pandavas, thus shrouded by Shalya in that battle, became unable to proceed against that great hero for fighting with him.
Mbh.9.13.815 Those, however, amongst the Pandavas, that had Bhimasena at their head and that were led by king Yudhishthira the just, did not fly away from that ornament of battle, the brave Shalya
Mbh.9.15.870 Shalya, shooting showers of shafts on all sides, afflicted the Pandavas with Satyaki and Vrikodara amongst them.
Mbh.9.15.872 The great car-warriors among the Pandavas who were mangled in that great battle with the shafts of Shalya, failed to find a protector.
Mbh.9.15.874 Shrouding Shalya in that battle with many arrows, Nakula, that slayer of hostile heroes, smiling the while, pierced him in the centre of the chest with ten arrows, made entirely of iron, polished by the hands of the smith, equipped with wings of gold, whetted on stone, and propelled from his bow with great force.
Mbh.9.15.875 Afflicted by his illustrious nephew, Shalya afflicted his nephew in return with many straight arrows.
Mbh.9.15.878 Piercing Yudhishthira with three arrows and Bhima with seven, Shalya pierced Satyaki with a hundred arrows in that battle and Sahadeva with three.
Mbh.9.15.890 That ornament of assemblies, Shalya, on his car, rushed against the car of Satyaki, like one infuriate elephant against another.
Mbh.9.15.901 That slayer of foes, Shalya, then achieved the most wonderful feat, since that hero alone, and unsupported, contended with many heroes in that battle.
Mbh.9.15.903 Then, O king, we beheld the car of Shalya careering in that dreadful battle like the car of Shakra in days of yore on the occasion of the destruction of the Asuras
Mbh.9.16.904 SECTION Sanjaya said, Then, O lord, thy troops, with Shalya at their head, once more rushed against the Parthas in that battle with great impetuosity.
Mbh.9.16.912 Armed with his mace, Bhimasena held the king in check, and Kunti's son Yudhishthira resisted Shalya at the head of his forces.
Mbh.9.16.914 We then beheld the highly wonderful feat that Shalya achieved, since, alone, he fought with the whole Pandava army.
Mbh.9.16.915 Shalya then, as he stayed in the vicinity of Yudhishthira in that battle, looked like the planet Saturn in the vicinity of the Moon.
Mbh.9.16.916 Afflicting the king with shafts that resembled snakes of virulent poison, Shalya rushed against Bhima, covering him with showers of arrows.
Mbh.9.16.917 Beholding that lightness of hand and that mastery over weapons displayed by Shalya the troops of both the armies applauded him highly.
Mbh.9.16.918 Afflicted by Shalya the Pandavas, exceedingly mangled, fled away, leaving the battle, and disregarding the cries of Yudhishthira commanding them to stop.
Mbh.9.16.923 Only one share, mine, that is constituted by the mighty car-warrior Shalya, remains.
Mbh.9.16.929 Either Shalya will slay me in battle or I will slay him.
Mbh.9.16.937 I shall thus be superior to Shalya in the great battle that will occur
Mbh.9.16.945 Boasting of his prowess in battle, Shalya poured a shower of arrows on that chastiser of foes, king Yudhishthira the just, like Maghavat pouring rain.
Mbh.9.16.949 Shalya and Yudhishthira, both endued with great prowess in battle, mangled each other, like a couple of tigers fighting for a piece of meat.
Mbh.9.16.972 Shalya, however, proceeded against him.
Mbh.9.16.975 Then Shalya covered Yudhishthira with showers of arrows.
Mbh.9.16.980 Whether the son of Pritha would enjoy the Earth, having slain Shalya, or whether Shalya having slain the son of Pandu would bestow the Earth on Duryodhana, could not be ascertained, O Bharata, by the warriors present there.
Mbh.9.16.982 Then Shalya shot a hundred foremost of arrows at Yudhishthira.
Mbh.9.16.984 Taking up another bow, Yudhishthira pierced Shalya with three hundred shafts and cut off the latter's bow with a razor-faced arrow.
Mbh.9.16.986 With two other very sharp shafts, he then cut off the two Parshni drivers of Shalya.
Mbh.9.16.987 Then with another blazing, well-tempered and sharp shaft, he cut off the standard of Shalya staying in his front.
Mbh.9.17.1015 Recovering his senses within a trice, that foremost of kings Shalya, possessed of prowess equal to that of him of a eyes, with eyes red in wrath, quickly struck the son of Pritha with a hundred arrows.
Mbh.9.17.1018 The illustrious Yudhishthira then, taking a new and more formidable bow in that battle, pierced Shalya with many arrows of keen points from every side like Indra piercing the Asura Namuchi.
Mbh.9.17.1019 The illustrious Shalya then, cutting off the golden coats of mail of both Bhima and king Yudhishthira with nine arrows, pierced the arms of both of them.
Mbh.9.17.1023 Having slain the steeds of the king, the high-souled Shalya then began to slay the troops of the royal son of Dharma.
Mbh.9.17.1027 That foremost of all bowmen, Bhima, then covered with a hundred arrows that hero Shalya, who, endued with great impetuosity, was careering alone in that battle.
Mbh.9.17.1029 Beholding Shalya stupefied with those arrows, Bhima cut off his armour with other shafts.
Mbh.9.17.1031 Cutting off the shaft of Nakula's car, Shalya of terrible strength rushed towards Yudhishthira.
Mbh.9.17.1032 Beholding Shalya rushing impetuously towards the king, even like the Destroyer himself rushing in rage, Dhristadyumna and Shikhandi and the five sons of Draupadi and the grandson of Sini suddenly advanced towards him.
Mbh.9.17.1042 Recollecting the words of Govinda, he quickly set his heart on the destruction of Shalya.
Mbh.9.17.1044 Beholding that feat of Shalya and reflecting upon the fact that the hero who had been allotted to him as his share still remained unslain, the son of Pandu firmly set his heart upon accomplishing that which Indra's younger brother had counselled him to achieve.
Mbh.9.17.1061 Shalya, however, roared aloud and endeavoured to catch that excellent dart of irresistible energy hurled by Yudhishthira with all his might, even as a fire leaps forth for catching a jet of clarified butter poured over it.
Mbh.9.17.1064 His armour having been cut off by that descendant of Kuru's race, the illustrious Shalya, strong as Indra's elephant, stretching his arms, fell down on the Earth, like a mountain summit riven by thunder.
Mbh.9.17.1067 The puissant Shalya, having long enjoyed the Earth like a dear wife, now seemed to sleep on the Earth's breast, embracing her with all his limbs.
Mbh.9.17.1068 Slain by Dharma's son of righteous soul in fair fight, Shalya seemed to assume the aspect of a goodly fire lying extinguished on the sacrificial platform.
Mbh.9.17.1075 Upon the fall of Shalya, the youthful younger brother of the king of the Madras, who was equal to his deceased brother in every accomplishment, and who was regarded as a mighty car-warrior, proceeded against Yudhishthira.
Mbh.9.17.1110 After the slaughter of that foremost of bowmen on the field of battle by that bull of Kuru's race, the Parthas, beholding Shalya slain, united together, and filled with great joy, blew their conchs.
Mbh.9.18.1113 SECTION Sanjaya said, After the slaughter of Shalya, O king, the followers of the Madra king, numbering seventeen hundred heroic car-warriors, proceeded for battle with great energy.
Mbh.9.18.1117 Meanwhile, hearing that Shalya had been slain and that Yudhishthira was afflicted by the mighty car-warriors of the Madrakas devoted to the welfare of the Madraka king, the great car-warrior Partha came there, stretching his bow Gandiva, and filling the Earth with the rattle of his car.
Mbh.9.19.1160 SECTION Sanjaya said, Upon the fall of that great king and mighty car-warrior, that invincible hero Shalya in battle, thy troops as also thy sons almost all turned away from the fight.
Mbh.9.19.1164 After the fall of Shalya, O king, none amongst thy troops set his heart on either rallying the army or displaying his prowess.
Mbh.9.19.1166 Despairing of success upon the fall of the mighty car-warrior Shalya, the Kuru army, with its heroes slain and exceedingly confused, began to be cut down with keen shafts.
Mbh.9.22.1510 After the fall of Bhurishrava, of Shalya, O Janardana, and of the Avanti heroes, the carnage did not still cease!
Mbh.9.25.1692 Shalya, the king of the Madras, hath been slain, and Jayadratha also, O Krishna, hath been slain!
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.9.31.2310 Shalya of great valour hath been slain!
Mbh.9.50.3704 While there Baladeva heard of the slaughter of Shalya.
Mbh.9.50.3705 Having made presents unto the brahmanas there, he gave way to grief, O scorcher of his foes, for Shalya who had been slain by the Pandavas in battle.
Mbh.9.54.3903 Drona also hath been slain, and Karna, and Shalya of great prowess!
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.11.16.685 Behold, the field of battle is adorned with those tigers among men, Bhishma and Karna and Abhimanyu and Drona and Drupada and Shalya, as if with blazing fires.
Mbh.11.23.910 SECTION Gandhari said, There lies Shalya, the maternal uncle himself of Nakula, slain in battle, O sire, by the pious and virtuous Yudhishthira!
Mbh.11.23.914 Alas, alas, behold the smooth face of Shalya, beautiful as the moon, and adorned with eyes resembling the petals of the lotus, eaten away by crows!
Mbh.11.23.918 Behold the brave Shalya, that giver of protection, that foremost of car-warriors, stretched on the bed of heroes, his body mangled with shafts.
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.
