Mbh.2.57.2358 And the mighty-armed one, endued with great prowess, then approached Somadatta, and then Duryodhana and Salya, and the son of Suvala, and those other kings also that had arrived there before him.
Mbh.2.72.3133 Vaisampayana continued, Then Drona, Somadatta and Valhika, Gautama, Vidura, the son of Drona, and the mighty son of Dhritarashtra by his Vaisya wife, Bhurisravas, and Bhishma, and that mighty warrior Vikarna, all said, Let not the play commence.

Mbh.2.79.3440 Then Bhishma and Drona, and Kripa, and Somadatta and the high-souled Vahlika, all left the assembly.
Mbh.3.29.1408 And Somadatta and Yuyutshu and Drona's son and our grandsire Vyasa, every one of them speaketh always of peace.
Mbh.3.120.6142 The son of Vasudeva will burn down by the volleys of his fiery shafts all the hostile troops, and those two warriors, Bhishma and Drona, who are great on a car, and Somadatta surrounded by all his sons.

Mbh.3.250.12399 And all his brothers with Dussasana at their head, and Bhurisrava, and Somadatta, and the mighty king Vahlika, followed that lion among kings on his way, with cars of various forms, and horses, and the best of elephants.
Mbh.5.23.990 I hope, O sire, that Somadatta is in health, and Bhurisravas, and Satyasandha, and Sala, and Drona with his son, and the Brahmana Kripa are also well.
Mbh.5.30.1342 I think, thou shouldst also worship that Somadatta who is endued with numerous excellent qualities, who is wise and possesses a merciful heart, and who from his affection for the Kurus always controls his anger towards them.
Mbh.5.30.1343 The son of Somadatta is worthy of the greatest reverence among the Kurus.
Mbh.5.47.2657 And Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Salya, and Kritavarman and Jayadratha, and Aswatthaman and Vikarna, and Somadatta and Vahlika and Vidura of great wisdom and Yuyutsu, the great car-warrior, all these heroic kings in a body, O bull among the Bharatas, having Dhritarashtra at their head, entered that hall of great beauty.
Mbh.5.55.3110 Those, however, amongst us, that are our chief warriors, are Bhishma, Drona, Kripa, Drona's son, Karna, Somadatta, Vahlika, and Salya, the king of Pragjyotisha, the two kings Vindha and Anuvinda of Avanti, and Jayadratha; and then, O king, thy sons Dussasana, Durmukha, Dussaha, Srutayu; Chitrasena, Purumitra, Vivingsati, Sala, Bhurisravas, and Vikarna.
Mbh.5.57.3164 And Chekitana on his car desireth to encounter Somadatta in single combat with him, while Satyaki is anxious to battle against the Bhoja chief, Kritavarman.
Mbh.5.57.3177 Bhishma, Drona, Kripa, the unconquerable Karna, Jayadratha, Somadatta, and Aswatthaman-all mighty bowmen and endued with great energy, are incapable of being vanquished by Indra himself united with the celestials.
Mbh.5.58.3214 I myself do not desire war, nor Vahlika, nor Bhishma, nor Drona, nor Aswatthaman, nor Sanjaya, nor Somadatta, nor Salya, nor Kripa, nor Satyavrata, nor Purumitra, nor Bhurisravas, in fact, none of these desireth war.
Mbh.5.66.3430 O Sanjaya, our grandsire, the son of Santanu, and Dhritarashtra, and Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and king Vahlika, and Drona's son, and Somadatta, and Sakuni the son of Suvala; and Dussasana, and Sala, and Purumitra, and Vivingsati; Vikarna, and Chitrasena, and king Jayatsena, and Vinda and Anuvinda, the two chiefs of Avanti, and Bhurisravas, and king Bhagadatta, and king Jarasandha and other rulers of the earth, assembled there to fight for the good of the Kauravas, are all on the eve of death.
Mbh.5.83.3994 O glorious Krishna, salute her for me, the Kuru king Dhritarashtra also, and all those monarchs who are senior to us in age, and Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and king Vahlika, and Drona's son and Somadatta, and in fact, every one of the Bharata race, and also Vidura endued with great wisdom, that counsellor of the Kurus, of profound intellect and intimate acquaintance with morality, should all, O slayer of Madhu, be embraced by thee'
Mbh.5.89.4169 And upon that son of Dasarha's race approaching his presence, the blind monarch of great fame stood up along with Drona and Bhishma, Kripa and Somadatta, and king Vahlika also, all stood up for honouring Janardana.
Mbh.5.89.4172 And Janardana then accosted the illustrious Drona and his son, and Vahlika, and Kripa, and Somadatta.
Mbh.5.90.4207 It is known that amongst those that were present, king Vahlika, Kripa, Somadatta, were pierced with grief at this sight, but of all present in that assembly, it was Vidura whom I worship.
Mbh.5.95.4464 If with Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and Karna, and Vivingsati, and Aswatthaman, Vikarna, and Somadatta, and Vahlika and the chief of the Sindhus, and the ruler of the Kalingas, and Sudakshina, the king of the Kamvojas, there were Yudhishthira, and Bhimasena and Savyasachin, and the twins, and if Satyaki of mighty energy, and Yuyutsu, that mighty car warrior, are stationed, who is there, O bull of Bharata's race, of such misdirected intelligence that would fight these?
Mbh.5.124.5487 Such conduct will be agreeable to and conducive to the happiness of Dhritarashtra who is endued with great wisdom, of grandsire Bhishma, Drona, the high-souled Kripa, Somadatta, wise Vahlika, Aswatthaman, Vikarna, Sanjaya, Vivingsati, and of many of thy kinsmen, O chastiser of foes, and many of thy friends also.
Mbh.5.124.5529 There are also Bhishma, and Drona, and this Karna, and Kripa, and Bhurisrava, and Somadatta, and Aswatthaman, and Jayadratha.
Mbh.5.128.5664 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words of his brother, Dhritarashtra's son, wicked, shameless, disobedient, disrespectful, and vain Suyodhana, breathing heavily like a great snake rose up from his seat in anger, and disregarding Vidura, and Dhritarashtra and the great king Vahlika, and Kripa, and Somadatta, and Bhishma, and Drona, and Janardana, in fact, all of them, went out of the court, And beholding that bull among men leave the court, his brother and all his counsellors, and all the kings, followed him.
Mbh.5.166.7531 The mighty bowman Bhurisravas, the son of Somadatta, who is accomplished in arms and is one of thy well-meaning friends, is a leader of leaders of car-divisions.
Mbh.6.44.2175 Thereupon the brothers, viz, thy sons Duryodhana, and Durmukha and Dussaha, and that mighty car-warrior Dussasana, and Durmarshana, O king, and Vivingsati, and Chitrasena, and the great car-warrior Vikarna and also Purumitra, and Jaya, and Bhoja, and the valorous son of Somadatta, shaking their splendid bows like masses of clouds exhibiting the lightning's flashes, and taking out of their quivers long arrows resembling snakes that have just cast off their sloughs, surrounded that mighty bowman rushing towards them covering him with flights of arrows like the clouds shrouding the sun.
Mbh.6.45.2233 And thereupon the son of Somadatta struck Sankha on the shoulders.
Mbh.6.51.2666 And Somadatta, and Susarman, and Sudakshina, the ruler of the Kamvojas and Satayus, and Srutayus, were on the right flank.
Mbh.6.63.3423 And there was none who was not then cheerless, save Somadatta's son, O king, and Bhurisravas, the son of Somadatta, O Bharata, beholding the car-warriors of his own side driven away, rushed against Satyaki from desire of battle, taking up his bow of fierce impetus
Mbh.6.74.3941 But the son of Somadatta, excited with rage, cut off their bows, O Bharata, and then their heads, with sharp shafts.
Mbh.6.85.4480 The mighty Dhrishtaketu, excited with wrath, speedily pierced the son of Somadatta, O king, with ninety shafts in the chest.
Mbh.6.85.4481 And the son of Somadatta looked highly resplendent with those shafts on his chest, like the sun, O king, with his rays at mid-day.
Mbh.6.93.4912 They met Duryodhana and Somadatta and Valhika and Jayadratha; and Kripa and Bhurisravas and Salya, and the two princes of Avanti along with Vrihadvala, and Aswatthaman and Vikarna, and Chitrasena and Vivinsati.
Mbh.6.93.4920 And overthrowing, with another broad-headed arrow, the standard of Somadatta, he uttered a loud yell.
Mbh.6.95.4995 Hearing these words of the preceptor, many warriors of thy side headed by Somadatta rushed upon the Pandava ranks.
Mbh.6.100.5337 And Aswatthaman, and Somadatta, and those great car-warriors, viz, the two princes of Avanti, accompanied by a large force, protected the left wing.
Mbh.6.112.6122 Against Bhimasena who was advancing upon the mighty Bhishma, proceeded Bhurisravas with great speed, saying, Wait, Wait, And the son of Somadatta struck Bhima in the centre of the chest with an arrow of exceeding sharpness and golden wings in that battle.
Mbh.6.112.6125 Bhima, longing for Bhishma's death, fought with the mighty son of Somadatta, and the latter, desirous of Bhishma's victory, fought with the former, each carefully seeking to counteract the other's feats.
Mbh.7.20.898 and Salya, and Somadatta, and Valhika, these heroes, surrounded by a full Akshauhini, took up their position in the right wing.
Mbh.7.23.1227 The son of Somadatta then, bearing the device of the sacrificial stake on his standard, that slayer of foes, quickly jumping down from his car, cut off with his large swords, his antagonist with his steeds, charioteer, standard, and car.
Mbh.7.35.1837 Then Karna and Kripa, and Drona and Drona's son, and the ruler of the Gandharas, and Sala and Salya, and Bhurisravas and Kratha, and Somadatta, and Vivinsati, and Vrishasena, and Sushena, and Kundavedhin, and Pratardana, and Vrindaraka and Lalithya, and Pravahu, and Drighalochana, and angry Duryodhana, showered their arrows upon him.
Mbh.7.37.1883 Careering with great speed like a circle of fire, he pierced Drona and Karna, and Kripa, and Salya and Drona's son, and Kritavarman of the Bhoja race, and Vrihadvala, and Duryodhana, and Somadatta, and mighty Sakuni, and diverse kings and diverse princes and diverse bodies of troops.
Mbh.7.83.3656 Formerly, O Sanjaya, while sitting in the abode of Somadatta who was devoted to truth, I used to hear such delightful sounds.
Mbh.7.83.3685 O child, I have kinsmen to whose voice the Pandavas will ever listen, such, for instance, as Salya, Somadatta, the high-souled Bhishma, Drona, Vikarna, Valhika, Kripa, and others among the Bharatas that are illustrious and reverend in years.
Mbh.7.101.4716 And piercing the son of Somadatta with three arrows and Salya with ten, he pierced Kripa with five and twenty arrows, and the ruler of the Sindhus with a hundred, Partha struck Drona's son with seventy arrows.
Mbh.7.103.4780 The son of Somadatta resisted the five sons of Draupadi, those tigers among men, those great car-warriors, wrathfully shooting mighty shafts.
Mbh.7.105.4862 SECTION CVII Sanjaya said, The illustrious son of Somadatta pierced each of the sons of Draupadi, those great bowmen, with five arrows, and once more with seven arrows.
Mbh.7.105.4865 The other brothers then, struggling vigorously, quickly pierced the wrathful son of Somadatta, each with three straight shafts.
Mbh.7.105.4866 Then the illustrious son of Somadatta, O monarch, sped at them five shafts, piercing each of them in the chest with one shaft.
Mbh.7.105.4869 And the son of Bhimasena, cutting off the bow of the illustrious son of Somadatta, uttered a loud shout and pierced his foe with many sharp arrows.
Mbh.7.105.4873 Beholding the head of the high-souled son of Somadatta thus fallen on the ground, thy troops, O king, overcome with fear, fled in all directions.
Mbh.7.141.7138 Beholding the princess Devaki on Sini's car, that bull among men, viz, the brave Somadatta of mighty energy could not brook the sight.
Mbh.7.141.7141 That bull among men, viz, Somadatta, was forcibly thrown down on the earth by Sini.
Mbh.7.141.7144 Reduced to that plight by Sini, Somadatta, O sire, under the influence of wrath began to pay his adorations to Mahadeva for inducing the latter to bless him.
Mbh.7.141.7146 The royal Somadatta then solicited the following boon, I desire a soon, O divine lord, who will strike Sini's son in the midst of thousands of kings and who will in battle strike him with his foot'
Mbh.7.141.7147 Hearing these words, O king, of Somadatta, the god saying, So be it' disappeared then and there.
Mbh.7.141.7148 It was in consequence of the gift of that boon that Somadatta subsequently obtained the highly charitable Bhurisravas for son, and it was for this, Somadatta's son threw down Sini's descendant in battle and struck him, before the eyes of the whole army, with his foot.
Mbh.7.152.7985 Then in the very sight of Karna, of Aswatthaman, of Duryodhana, of Kripa, of Somadatta, and of Valhika, the son of Pandu, that chastiser of foes, by a stamp of his foot, caused that car of the heroic Durmada and Dushkarna to sink into the earth.
Mbh.7.153.7996 SECTION CLV Sanjaya said, After his son Bhurisravas had been slain by Satyaki while the former was sitting in Praya, Somadatta, filled with rage, said unto Satyaki these words, Why, O Satwata, having abandoned those Kshatriya duties ordained by the high-souled gods, hast thou betaken thyself to the practices of robbers?
Mbh.7.153.8004 Having said these words, the mighty Somadatta, filled with rage, blew his conch loudly and uttered a leonine roar.
Mbh.7.153.8005 Then Satyaki, of eyes like lotus-petals and teeth like those of a lion, possessed of great strength, and filled with rage, said these words unto Somadatta, O thou of Kuru's race, whether battling with thee or with others, I do not in my heart ever experience the slightest fear.
Mbh.7.153.8019 Then with a thousand cars and ten thousand horses, Duryodhana took his station, encompassing Somadatta, Sakuni also, filled with rage, and armed with every weapon and surrounded by his sons and grandsons as also by his brothers, that were equal to Indra himself in prowess did the same.
Mbh.7.153.8021 With these he encompassed the mighty bowman Somadatta.
Mbh.7.153.8022 Protected by those mighty warriors, Somadatta covered Satyaki with clouds of shafts.
Mbh.7.153.8025 Then Somadatta pierced Satyaki, with nine arrows.
Mbh.7.153.8027 Deeply pierced in that battle by the mighty and firm bowman Satyaki, Somadatta sat down on the terrace of his car and lost his senses in a swoon, Beholding him deprived of his senses, his driver, with great speed, bore away from the battle that great car-warrior, viz, the heroic Somadatta.
Mbh.7.153.8028 Seeing that Somadatta, afflicted with Yuyudhana's shafts, had lost his senses Drona rushed with speed, desiring to slay the Yadu hero.
Mbh.7.154.8218 Then Somadatta, once more filled with rage upon beholding Satyaki in that battle, covered the latter, O Bharata, with a dense shower of arrows.
Mbh.7.154.8222 Somadatta, however, in return, pierced that hero with a hundred arrows.
Mbh.7.154.8225 Then, fighting for the sake of Satyaki, Bhimasena hurled at the head of Somadatta a new, hard and terrible Parigha.
Mbh.7.154.8227 The Parigha and the shaft, both terrible, fell simultaneously upon the body of the heroic Somadatta.
Mbh.7.154.8229 Beholding his son Somadatta thus fallen into a swoon, Valhika rushed at Satyaki scattering showers of arrows like a cloud in season.
Mbh.7.155.8362 Duryodhana, and Drona, and Sakuni, and Durmukha, and Jaya, and Duhsasana, and Vrishasena, and the ruler of the Madras, and thyself too and Somadatta and Drona's son, and Vivinsati, all these heroes skilled in battle, are here, clad in mail.
Mbh.7.159.8598 SECTION CLXI Sanjaya said Beholding Somadatta shaking his large bow, Satyaki, addressing his driver, said, Bear me towards Somadatta.
Mbh.7.159.8602 Beholding the Satwata hero thus advancing quickly in battle Somadatta, O king, fearlessly turned towards him.
Mbh.7.159.8605 Then Somadatta pierced that hero of Madhu's race with sixty shafts in the chest.
Mbh.7.159.8606 Satyaki, in turn, O king, pierced Somadatta with many whetted arrows.
Mbh.7.159.8613 Then, O monarch, the mighty car-warrior, Somadatta, in that battle, cut off with a crescent-shaped arrow the large bow of Madhava.
Mbh.7.159.8615 Then Satyaki, taking up a tougher bow, quickly pierced Somadatta with five shafts.
Mbh.7.159.8617 Somadatta, however, beholding his standard cut down, fearlessly pierced the grandson of Sini with five and twenty arrows.
Mbh.7.159.8618 Satwata also, excited with rage, cut off with a razor-faced arrow the bow of Somadatta, in that encounter.
Mbh.7.159.8619 And he also pierced Somadatta who then resembled a snake without fangs, with a hundred straight arrows, equipped with wings of gold.
Mbh.7.159.8620 The mighty car-warrior Somadatta, then, who was endued with great strength taking up another bow, began to cover Satyaki with showers of shafts.
Mbh.7.159.8621 Satyaki too, inflamed with rage, pierced Somadatta with many shafts.
Mbh.7.159.8622 Somadatta, in return, afflicted Satyaki with his arrowy showers.
Mbh.7.159.8624 Somadatta, however, fearlessly struck Bhimasena with many whetted arrows.
Mbh.7.159.8631 Then he sought at Somadatta himself a terrible shaft of fiery effulgence, whetted on stone, steeped in oil, and equipped with wings of gold.
Mbh.7.159.8632 That excellent and fierce shaft, shot by the mighty grandson of Sini, quickly fell like a hawk, O Lord, upon the chest of Somadatta.
Mbh.7.159.8633 Deeply pierced by the mighty Satwata, the great car-warrior Somadatta, O monarch, fell down from his car and expired.
Mbh.7.159.8634 Beholding the great car-warrior Somadatta slain there, thy warriors with a large throng of cars rushed against Yuyudhana.
Mbh.8.1.24 O brahmana, when the king did not yield up his life after hearing of the fall of the venerable son of Shantanu, of Bahlika and Drona and Somadatta and Bhurishrava, as also other friends and his sons and grandsons, I think, O regenerate one, that the act of yielding up one's life is exceedingly difficult!
Mbh.8.5.117 The kinsman of the Kauravas, the son of Somadatta, the brave and celebrated Bhurishrava, O king, hath been slain by Satyaki in battle.
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.9.2.99 When Bhurishrava has been slain in battle, as also Somadatta and king Bahlika, what can it be but destiny?
Mbh.9.22.1511 After the fall of Jayadratha, of the Rakshasa Alayudha, of Bahlika, and of Somadatta, the carnage did not still cease!
Mbh.9.61.4435 Bhishma, and Somadatta, and Valhika, and Kripa, and Drona and his son, and the wise Vidura, always solicited thee for peace.
Mbh.10.9.720 Embrace king Bahlika, that mighty car-warrior, as also the ruler of the Sindhus, and Somadatta, Bhurishrava, and the other foremost of kings that have preceded thee to heaven.
Mbh.11.24.962 SECTION Gandhari said, Behold the son of Somadatta, who was slain by Yuyudhana, pecked at and torn by a large number of birds!
Mbh.11.24.963 Burning with grief at the death of his son, Somadatta, O Janardana, as he lies there seems to censure the great bowman Yuyudhana.
Mbh.11.24.964 There the mother of Bhurishrava, that faultless lady, overcome with grief, is addressing her lord Somadatta, saying, By good luck, O king, thou seest not this terrible carnage of the Bharatas, this extermination of the Kurus, this sight that resembles the scenes occurring at the end of the yuga.
Mbh.11.25.1030 The Pandavas, O Krishna, with thyself, are surely unslayable, since they and thou have escaped from Drona, from Bhishma, from Karna the son of Vikartana, from Kripa, from Duryodhana, from the son of Drona, from the mighty car-warrior Jayadratha, from Somadatta, from Vikarna, and from the brave Kritavarma.
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.15.11.535 He wishes to perform the Sraddha of the high-souled son of Ganga, as also of Drona and Somadatta and Valhika of great intelligence, and of all his sons as also of all well-wishers of his that have been slain, and, if thou permittest it, of that wicked-souled wight, viz, the ruler of the Sindhus
Mbh.15.11.551 Yielding to wrath, Bhimasena said these words, O Phalguna, it is we that shall make gifts in the matter of Bhishma's obsequies, as also of king Somadatta and of Bhurisravas, of the royal sage Valhika, and of the high-souled Drona, and of all others.
Mbh.15.11.561 Where were Bhishma and Drona then, and where was Somadatta?
Mbh.15.14.611 Naming Drona, and Bhishma, and Somadatta, and Valhika, and king Duryodhana, and each one of his other sons, and all his well-wishers with Jayadratha numbering first, those gifts were made in due order.
