MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.5.158.6991 Vaisampayana continued, Summoning then those warriors eager for battle, viz, Drupada and Virata, and that bull of Sini's race, and Dhrishtadyumna the prince of Panchala, and king Dhrishtaketu, and prince Shikhandi of Panchala, and Sahadeva, the ruler of the Magadhas, Yudhishthira duly appointed them in the command of his seven divisions.
Mbh.8.2.40 That hero endued with great energy and born of the Vasus themselves, who slew every day car-warriors clad in mail, that high-souled one unto whom Bhrigu's son had given the highest weapons, that warrior who in his childhood had been trained in the science of the bow by Rama, alas, even he hath been slain by Yajnasena's son Shikhandi protected by the Pandavas!
Mbh.8.9.303 With his powerful shafts Shikhandi felled in battle that foremost of all wielders of weapons, viz, Bhishma, who did nothing to repel the attack.
Mbh.8.10.378 Thyself also having laid aside thy weapons, the valiant Bhishma was slain in great battle by Phalguni with Shikhandi before him!
Mbh.8.12.471 They consisted of Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandi and the five sons of Draupadi and the Prabhadrakas, and Satyaki and Chekitana with the Dravida forces, and the Pandyas, the Cholas, and the Keralas, surrounded by a mighty array, all possessed of broad chests, long arms, tall statures, and large eyes.
Mbh.8.13.511 The invincible Shikhandi closed with Kritavarma.
Mbh.8.22.922 Then Nakula and Sahadeva, and the sons of Draupadi, and the Prabhadrakas, and Satyaki, and Shikhandi, and Chekitana endued with great energy, all those heroes, drenched those elephants from every side with their weapons, like the clouds drenching the hills with their showers.
Mbh.8.22.942 Then the Pancala prince, and the grandson of Sini Satyaki and the sons of Draupadi and the Prabhadrakas, and Shikhandi, drenched those huge elephants with showers of shafts.
Mbh.8.26.1126 The invincible Shikhandi, the cause of Bhishma's death, was in that battle, resisted by Hridika's son who smiled repeatedly as he fought with the former.
Mbh.8.26.1127 Shikhandi, however, encountering the mighty car-warrior of the Hridikas, struck him with five keen and broad-headed shafts at the shoulder-joint.
Mbh.8.26.1131 Then, O monarch, Shikhandi sped at his foe ninety shafts of great impetuosity, all equipped with golden wings.
Mbh.8.26.1133 Seeing those shafts recoil and scattered on the surface of the Earth, Shikhandi cut off Kritavarma's bow with a keen razor-headed arrow.
Mbh.8.26.1137 The puissant Kritavarma then, taking up another bow with a string and an arrow fixed thereon, struck Shikhandi in his shoulder-joint.
Mbh.8.26.1138 With those shafts sticking to his shoulder-joint, Shikhandi looked resplendent like a lordly tree with its spreading branches and twigs.
Mbh.8.26.1142 Struck therewith, Shikhandi quickly swooned away.
Mbh.8.30.1312 Yudhamanyu and Shikhandi and the sons of Draupadi and the Prabhadrakas, and Uttamauja and Yuyutsu and the twins and Dhrishtadyumna, and the divisions of the Cedis and the Karushas and the Matsyas and Kaikeyas, and the mighty Chekitana, and king Yudhishthira of excellent vows, all these, accompanied by cars and steeds and elephants, and foot-soldiers of fierce prowess, encompassed Karna on all sides in that battle, and showered upon him diverse kinds of weapons, addressing him in harsh words and resolved to compass his destruction.
Mbh.8.46.2539 Let the sons of Draupadi with Shikhandi amongst them, proceed against the rest of the Dhartarashtras.
Mbh.8.48.2650 Then Dhrishtadyumna, Satyaki, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Vrikodara, Janamejaya, and Shikhandi, and many foremost warriors among the Prabhadrakas, and many amongst the Cedis, the Kaikayas, and the Pancalas, the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the Matsyas, all clad in mail, rushed fiercely upon Radha's son, skilled in smiting, from desire of slaying him.
Mbh.8.48.2680 The mighty car-warrior Vrishasena then, riding on another vehicle, pierced the five sons of Draupadi with seventy and Yuyudhana with five, and Bhimasena with four and sixty, and Sahadeva with five, and Nakula with thirty, and Satanika with seven arrows, and Shikhandi with ten, and king Yudhishthira with a hundred.
Mbh.8.48.2688 And the heroic Shikhandi pierced him with ten and king Yudhishthira with a hundred.
Mbh.8.48.2702 Then many Pandava warriors, O king, with Shikhandi and Satyaki, desirous of rescuing the king from the son of Radha, surrounded the former.
Mbh.8.49.2739 Satyaki and Chekitana and Yuyutsu and Shikhandi and the sons of Draupadi and the Prabhadrakas, and the twins Nakula and Sahadeva and Bhimasena and Shishupala and the Karushas, Matsyas, the Suras, the Kaikayas, the Kasis and the Kosalas, all these brave heroes, endued with great activity, assailed Vasusena.
Mbh.8.54.3052 Then Shikhandi, filled with rage, speedily proceeded against the grandson of Gautama Kripa and poured upon that bull amongst Brahmanas his arrowy downpours from all sides.
Mbh.8.54.3053 Acquainted with the highest weapons Kripa then checked that arrowy downpour, and wrathfully pierced Shikhandi with ten arrows in that battle.
Mbh.8.54.3054 Then Shikhandi filled with rage, deeply pierced Kripa, in that encounter, with seven straight arrows equipped with Kanka feathers.
Mbh.8.54.3055 The twice-born Kripa then, that great car-warrior, deeply pierced with those keen arrows, deprived Shikhandi of his steeds, driver and car.
Mbh.8.54.3056 Jumping down from his steedless vehicle, the mighty car-warrior Shikhandi rushed impetuously at the Brahmana, having taken up a sword and a shield.
Mbh.8.54.3058 Indeed, exceedingly wonderful was the sight that we then beheld, even like the flying of rocks, for Shikhandi, O king, thus assailed remained perfectly inactive in that battle.
Mbh.8.54.3059 Beholding Shikhandi covered with arrows by Kripa, O best of the kings, the mighty car-warrior Dhrishtadyumna speedily proceeded against Kripa.
Mbh.8.54.3064 Meanwhile Sharadvata's son, in that battle, O sire, with great activity, sped many arrows at Shikhandi, as if for the purpose of burning him outright.
Mbh.8.54.3068 Deprived of his shield, O monarch, and placed under Kripa's power Shikhandi still rushed, sword in hand, towards Kripa, like a sick man towards the jaws of Death.
Mbh.8.54.3069 Then Suketu, the son of Citraketu, O king, quickly proceeded towards the mighty Shikhandi plunged into such distress and assailed in that manner by Kripa with his arrows.
Mbh.8.54.3071 Beholding that Brahmana observant of vows thus engaged in battle with another, Shikhandi, O best of kings, retreated hastily from that spot.
Mbh.8.56.3204 And Shikhandi, and Sahadeva, and Nakula, and Nakula's son, and Janamejaya, and the grandson of Sini, and innumerable Prabhadrakas, all endued with immeasurable energy, advancing with Dhrishtadyumna in their van, looked magnificent as they struck Karna with shafts and diverse weapons.
Mbh.8.60.3471 In the very sight of the twins, O Partha, and of Satyaki and Shikhandi, and Dhrishtadyumna and Bhima and Satanika, O lord, as also of all the Pancalas and the Cedis, O Bharata, yonder Karna is destroying the Pandava division with his arrows, like an elephant destroying an assemblage of lotuses.
Mbh.8.61.3553 Bhimasena, and the grandson of Sini, and Shikhandi and Janamejaya, and Dhrishtadyumna of great strength, and all the Prabhadrakas, and those tigers among men, the Pancalas, filled with rage and inspired with desire of victory, rushed in that battle from every side against thy army.
Mbh.8.61.3556 Shikhandi proceeded against Karna, and Dhrishtadyumna proceeded against thy son Duhshasana, accompanied by a large force.
Mbh.8.61.3563 The slayer of Bhishma, Shikhandi, then, O monarch, with his winged arrows, resisted Karna, careering fearlessly in that battle.
Mbh.8.61.3564 Held in check, Karna then, his lips trembling in rage, assailed Shikhandi with three arrows in the midst of his eyebrows.
Mbh.8.61.3565 With those three arrows sticking on his forehead, Shikhandi looked highly beautiful like a silver mountain with three elevated crests.
Mbh.8.61.3566 Deeply pierced by the Suta's son in that encounter, the mighty bowman Shikhandi pierced Karna, in return, with ninety keen shafts.
Mbh.8.61.3569 Cutting off that dart with three shafts in that encounter, Karna then, O Bharata, pierced Shikhandi with nine keen arrows.
Mbh.8.61.3570 Avoiding then the shafts sped from Karna's bow, that best of men, Shikhandi, exceedingly mangled, retreated speedily from that spot.
Mbh.8.66.3832 I was also made steedless and carless by him in the very sight of Yuyudhana, of Dhrishtadyumna, of the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, of the heroic Shikhandi, as also in the very sight of the sons of Draupadi, and all the Pancalas!
Mbh.8.70.4124 It was for thy good, O chief of men, that Bhishma, firmly devoted to truth, himself told thee the means of his death in battle, and was slain by the heroic and high-souled Shikhandi, the son of Drupada, protected by me.
Mbh.8.73.4359 So also, O Partha, it is owing to their having been always protected by thee that Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandi succeeded in slaying Drona and Bhishma.
Mbh.8.73.4385 Encountering him, Shikhandi, protected by thee, slew that tiger among men with his straight shafts.
Mbh.8.73.4457 Know, O Partha, that is prevailing over the Pancalas, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandi, and the sons of Dhrishtadyumna, and Satanika, the son of Nakula, and Nakula himself, and Sahadeva, and Durmukha, and Janamejaya, and Sudharman, and Satyaki!
Mbh.8.74.4525 Today, slaying Karna in dreadful battle, I will pay off my debt, O Madhava, to the Pancalas with Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandi!
Mbh.8.75.4549 Kripa and Shikhandi encountered each other in that battle, while Satyaki proceeded against Duryodhana.
Mbh.8.75.4560 Meanwhile Uttamauja, piercing with his keen shafts and cutting off with his bright sword the steeds of Kripa and those warriors also that protected Kripa's sides, quickly ascended the car of Shikhandi.
Mbh.8.75.4561 Beholding Kripa deprived of his car, Shikhandi who was on his vehicle, wished not to strike him with his shafts.
Mbh.8.78.4735 Indeed, Shikhandi, and Bhima, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata, and Nakula, and Sahadeva, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Satyaki, surrounded the son of Radha, pouring showers of arrows upon him, from desire of despatching him to the other world.
Mbh.8.78.4737 Shikhandi struck him with five and twenty shafts, and Dhrishtadyumna struck him with seven, and the sons of Draupadi with four and sixty, and Sahadeva with seven, and Nakula with a hundred, in that battle.
Mbh.8.78.4780 Similarly the Pandava heroes, Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandi and the five sons of Draupadi, filled with rage, slaughtered thy host.
Mbh.8.79.4811 Learning that king Yudhishthira the just hath been exceedingly mangled and made carless by thee, and seeing the plight of Shikhandi, and Satyaki, and Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Prishata, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Yudhamanyu, and Uttamauja, and the brothers, Nakula and Sahadeva, that scorcher of foes, Partha, advanceth impetuously on a single car against thee.
Mbh.8.79.4901 Then those mighty car-warriors, Shikhandi and Satyaki and the twins, proceeding in the direction of Dhananjaya, checked those foes and, piercing them with keen arrows, uttered terrible roars.
Mbh.8.82.5008 Then Shikhandi cut off that arrow with three shafts of his, and struck Karna himself with three other shafts.
Mbh.8.82.5009 The fierce son of the Suta then, cutting off with a couple of razor-faced arrows the bow and the standard of Shikhandi, struck and pierced Shikhandi himself with six shafts, and then cut off the head of Dhrishtadyumna's son.
Mbh.8.82.5022 Then Uttamauja and Janamejaya, and the enraged Yudhamanyu and Shikhandi, uniting with Prishata's son Dhrishtadyumna and uttering loud roars, pierced Karna with many shafts.
Mbh.8.82.5026 The Suta's son then pierced Shikhandi with a dozen keen shafts, and Uttamauja with half a dozen, and Yudhamanyu with three, and then each of the other two, viz, Somaka Janamejaya and Prishata's son Dhrishtadyumna with three shafts.
Mbh.8.93.5952 Chekitana and Shikhandi and the five sons of Draupadi, O sire, having slaughtered thy vast army, blew their conchs.
Mbh.8.96.6145 Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Vrikodara the son of Pandu, and Satyaki, O king, that foremost of car-warriors among the Vrishnis, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Shikhandi, and others among the Pandus, the Pancalas, and the Srinjayas, worshipped the son of Kunti at the slaughter of the Suta's son.
Mbh.9.1.39 Dhrishtadyumna also hath been slain, O king, as also the vanquished Shikhandi.
Mbh.9.2.97 When that lord of the world, the valiant Bhishma, having encountered Shikhandi, met with his death like a lion meeting with his at the hands of a jackal, what can it be but destiny?
Mbh.9.2.142 Tell me how all the Pancalas with their followers, and Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandi and the five sons of Draupadi, fell.
Mbh.9.5.313 Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandi have drawn their swords against me.
Mbh.9.7.421 Today let all the sons of Pandu, and Vasudeva, and Satyaki, and the sons of Draupadi, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Shikhandi, and all the Prabhadrakas, behold my prowess and the great might of my bow, and my quickness, and the energy of my weapons, and the strength of my arms, in battle.
Mbh.9.7.439 In battle, he is superior in might to Shikhandi and Arjuna and Bhima and Satyaki and Dhrishtadyumna, O Bharata.
Mbh.9.8.494 Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandi and the mighty car-warrior Satyaki proceeded with great speed against the army of Shalya.
Mbh.9.9.552 As soon as they heard that loud peal, Dhrishtadyumna and Shikhandi, placing king Yudhishthira at their head, rushed against the ruler of the Madras.
Mbh.9.11.660 Possessed of great strength, he pierced Bhimasena, and the five sons of Draupadi and Dhristadyumna, the two sons of Madri by Pandu, and the grandson of Sini, and Shikhandi also, each with ten arrows equipped with wings of gold and whetted on stone.
Mbh.9.15.868 Shikhandi, supported by the Prabhadrakas, fought with two Kuru bowmen, Kritavarma and the great car-warrior Kripa.
Mbh.9.16.911 The Pancala prince Shikhandi resisted the son of Drona.
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.9.18.1118 Then Arjuna, and Bhima, and the two sons of Madri by Pandu, and that tiger among men, Satyaki, and the five sons of Draupadi, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Shikhandi, and the Pancalas and the Somakas, desirous of rescuing Yudhishthira, surrounded him on all sides.
Mbh.9.18.1124 What has become of the Pancalas of great energy as also of the mighty car-warrior Shikhandi?
Mbh.9.19.1188 Why will not victory be theirs that have Dhananjaya for their warrior, as also Satyaki, and Bhimasena, and Dhrishtadyumna the son of Prishata, and the five sons of Draupadi, and the two sons of Madri, and the mighty bowman Shikhandi, and king Yudhishthira?
Mbh.9.20.1265 Beholding the driver of the Pancala king thus crushed by that foremost of elephants, Bhima and Shikhandi and the grandson of Sini rushed with great speed against that animal.
Mbh.9.21.1313 Fearlessly that invincible warrior, filled with rage, assailed with keen arrows all the Pandus, and Dhrishtadyumna the son of Prishta, and Shikhandi, and the sons of Draupadi, and the large bands of the Pancalas, and the Kaikeyas, O sire, and the Somakas!
