MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.65.3290 And Sukra, the son of a Rishi, was the chief priest of the Asuras.
Mbh.1.65.3291 And the celebrated Sukra had four sons who were priests of the Asuras.
Mbh.1.66.3374 The learned Sukra is Bhrigu's son.
Mbh.1.66.3375 And the learned Sukra becoming a planet and engaged according to the command of the Self-existent in pouring and withholding rain, and in dispensing and remitting calamities, traverses, for sustaining the lives of all the creatures in the three worlds, through the skies.
Mbh.1.66.3376 And the learned Sukra, of great intelligence and wisdom, of rigid vows, leading the life of a Brahmacharin, divided himself in twain by power of asceticism, and became the spiritual guide of both the Daityas and the gods.
Mbh.1.66.3377 And after Sukra was thus employed by Brahman in seeking the welfare of the gods and the Asuras, Bhrigu begot another excellent son.
Mbh.1.66.3396 And the daughter born of Sukra, named Divi, became the eldest wife of Varuna.
Mbh.1.75.4168 During the time of a great sacrifice I have been cursed by the Muni Usanas Sukra.
Mbh.1.76.4192 SECTION LXXVI Sambhava Parva continued Janamejaya said, O thou of the wealth of asceticism, tell me how our ancestor Yayati, who is the tenth from Prajapati, obtained for a wife the unobtainable daughter of Sukra.
Mbh.1.76.4196 I will tell thee, in reply to thy question, O Janamejaya, how both Sukra and Vrishaparvan bestowed upon him, with due rites, their daughters, and how his union took place with Devayani in special.
Mbh.1.76.4200 Those Danavas assembled for encounter that were slain by the gods were all revived by the seer Sukra by the power of his knowledge.
Mbh.1.76.4206 That knowledge which resides in Sukra, that Brahmana of immeasurable prowess, make thy own as soon as thou canst.
Mbh.1.76.4215 Kacha, thus sent by the gods, soon went to the capital of the chief of the Asuras, and beheld Sukra there.
Mbh.1.76.4221 Sukra hearing this said, Welcome art thou, O Kacha!
Mbh.1.76.4224 Vaisampayana continued, Kacha commanded by Kavya or Usanas himself, called also Sukra, then said, So be it' and took the vow he had spoken of.
Mbh.1.76.4242 Sukra hearing this said, I will revive him by saying, Let this one come'
Mbh.1.76.4243 Then having recourse to the science of reviving the dead, Sukra summoned Kacha.
Mbh.1.76.4265 Sukra hearing this said, O daughter, the son of Vrihaspati hath gone to the region of the dead.
Mbh.1.76.4280 Having said this, the Brahmana Sukra, urged by Devayani, began to summon Kacha who had entered the jaws of Death.
Mbh.1.76.4284 Vaisampayana continued, Sukra then said, By what path, O Brahmana, hast thou entered my stomach, where thou stayest now?
Mbh.1.76.4292 Hearing this, Sukra said, O daughter, what good can I do to thee?
Mbh.1.76.4300 Then Sukra said, O son of Vrihaspati, thou art, indeed, one already crowned with success, because Devayani regards thee so well.
Mbh.1.76.4311 Vaisampayana continued, The learned Sukra, having been deceived while under the influence of wine, and remembering the total loss of consciousness that is one of the terrible consequences of drink, and beholding too before him the handsome Kacha whom he had, in a state of unconsciousness, drunk with his wine, then thought of effecting a reform in the manners of Brahmanas.
Mbh.1.77.4332 As my preceptor Sukra, thy father, is ever deserving of my regards, so art thou, O Devayani!
Mbh.1.78.4405 Devayani then replied, I am the daughter of Sukra who brings back into life the Asuras slain by the gods.
Mbh.1.78.4428 Sukra replied, Thou art, O Devayani, no daughter of a hired adorer, of one that asketh for alms and accepteth gifts.
Mbh.1.79.4435 SECTION LXXIX Sambhava Parva continued Sukra continued, Know, then, O Devayani, that he that mindeth not the evil speeches of others, conquereth everything!
Mbh.1.80.4466 Sukra then replied, Ye Asuras, whether ye go into the depths of the ocean or fly away to all directions.
Mbh.1.80.4474 Sukra then answered, If it is true, O great Asura, that I am the lord of all the wealth of the Asuras, then go and gratify Devayani'
Mbh.1.80.4484 Urged by Devayani, the Brahmana Sukra is on the point of leaving his disciples the Asuras.
Mbh.1.80.4487 Urged by Devayani Sukra is calling me.
Mbh.1.80.4488 Both Sukra and Devayani must not leave the Asuras through my fault'
Mbh.1.81.4512 Know that I am the daughter of Sukra, the spiritual guide of the Asuras.
Mbh.1.81.4533 Thou art the daughter of Sukra far superior to me.
Mbh.1.81.4555 The maid represented to Sukra everything as it had happened.
Mbh.1.81.4563 Sukra exclaimed, O thou of splendid courage, thou hast, indeed, been accepted as her lord by this my dear daughter.
Mbh.1.81.4567 Sukra, however, assured him by saying, I shall absolve thee from the sin.
Mbh.1.81.4575 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by Sukra, Yayati then walked round the Brahmana.
Mbh.1.81.4577 And having received from Sukra this rich treasure of the excellent Devayani with Sarmishtha and those two thousand maidens, and duly honoured also by Sukra himself and the Asuras, the best of monarchs, then, commanded by the high-souled Bhargava, returned to his capital with a joyous heart
Mbh.1.83.4683 Sukra, hearing all this, said, O monarch, since thou hast made vice thy beloved pursuit, though fully acquainted with the precepts of religion, invincible decrepitude shall paralyse thee'
Mbh.1.83.4688 Sukra then replied, Thou art dependent on me.
Mbh.1.83.4694 Sukra then answered, I never speak an untruth.
Mbh.1.83.4698 Sukra replied, O son of Nahusha, thinking of me thou mayst transfer this thy decrepitude to whomsoever thou likest.
Mbh.1.85.4784 But the four orders, with the Brahmanas at their head, then addressed the monarch thus, O king, how shall thou bestow thy kingdom on Puru, passing over thy eldest son Yadu born of Devayani, and, therefore, the grandson of the great Sukra?
Mbh.1.85.4801 It hath also been commanded by Sukra himself, the son of Kavi, that, that son of mine who should obey me will become king after me and bring the whole Earth under his sway.
Mbh.1.85.4805 And as Sukra himself hath commanded it, we have nothing to say to it'
Mbh.1.103.5788 O virtuous one, thou art well-acquainted, in detail and in the abstract, with the dictates of virtue, with various Srutis, and with all the branches of the Vedas; know very well that thou art equal unto Sukra and Angiras as regards firmness in virtue, knowledge of the particular customs of families, and readiness of inventions under difficulties.
Mbh.1.233.11384 O Sukra, water is thy parent as thou art the parent of water!
Mbh.1.233.11405 O Sukra, O thou from whose mouth the Vedas have sprung, it is thou who assumests the form of the sun, and sucking up the waters of the earth and every liquid juice that the earth yields, givest them back in time in the form of rain and causest everything to grow!
Mbh.1.233.11406 From thee, O Sukra, are these plants and creepers with green foliage!
Mbh.1.233.11422 Drona said, O Sukra, these cats trouble us every day.
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.2.7.332 And Vrihaspati and Sukra are present there on all occasions.
Mbh.2.11.438 The twenty tribes of the Gandharvas and Apsaras, as also their seven other tribes, and all the Lokapalas chief protectors of several regions, and Sukra, and Vrihaspati, and Vudha, and Angaraka Mangala, Sani, Rahu, and the other planets; the Mantras of the Sama Veda, the special Mantras of the same Veda; the rites of Harimat and Vasumat, the Adityas with Indra, the two Agnis mentioned by name viz Agnisoma and Indragni, the Marutas, Viswakarman, and the Vasus, O Bharata; the Pitris, and all kinds of sacrificial libations, the four Vedas.
Mbh.2.61.2475 Listen now to the words of the Poet Sukra which I will quote.
Mbh.3.3.196 Ravi, Gabhastimat, Aja, Kala, Mrityu, Dhatri, Prabhakara, Prithibi, Apa, Teja, Kha, Vayu, the sole stay, Soma, Vrihaspati, Sukra, Budha, Angaraka, Indra, Vivaswat, Diptanshu, Suchi, Sauri, Sanaichara, Brahma, Vishnu, Rudra, Skanda, Vaisravana, Yama, Vaidyutagni, Jatharagni, Aindhna, Tejasampati, Dharmadhwaja, Veda-karttri, Vedanga, Vedavahana, Krita, Treta, Dwapara, Kali, full of every impurity, Kala, Kastha, Muhurtta, Kshapa, Yama, and Kshana; Samvatsara-kara, Aswattha, Kalachakra, Bibhavasu, Purusha, Saswata, Yogin, Vyaktavyakta, Sanatana, Kaladhyaksha, Prajadhyaksha, Viswakarma, Tamounda, Varuna, Sagara, Ansu, Jimuta, Jivana, Arihan, Bhutasraya, Bhutapati, Srastri, Samvartaka, Vanhi, Sarvadi, Alolupa, Ananta, Kapila, Bhanu, Kamada, Sarvatomukha, Jaya, Visala, Varada, Manas, Suparna, Bhutadi, Sighraga, Prandharana, Dhanwantari, Dhumaketu, Adideva, Aditisuta, Dwadasatman, Aravindaksha, Pitri, Matri, Pitamaha, Swarga-dwara, Prajadwara, Mokshadwara, Tripistapa, Dehakarti, Prasantatman, Viswatman, Viswatomukha, Characharatman, Sukhsmatman, the merciful Maitreya.
Mbh.3.144.7341 And then, O sinless one, Pandu's son together with Krishna and his brothers, and thousands of Brahmanas versed in the Vedas and the Vendangas, entered into that holy hermitage, like unto the abode of Sukra and pleasing the mind with heavenly odours and resembling heaven itself and attended with beauty.
Mbh.3.184.9188 He is a protector of created beings like Indra, a propounder of morals like Sukra, a counsellor like Vrihaspati and hence he is also called the ruler of men's destinies.
Mbh.5.6.142 You are equal in intellect to either Sukra or Vrihaspati, the son of Angiras.
Mbh.5.83.3980 And Vasishtha and Vamadeva, and Bhuridyumna and Gaya, and Kratha and Sukra and Kusika and Bhrigu, and other Brahmarshis and celestial Rishis united together, all stood on the right side of Krishna, that delighter of the Yadavas, that younger brother of Vasava.
Mbh.5.98.4665 The great preceptor Sukra hath said that this weapon is a terrible one in respect of all kings.
Mbh.5.117.5285 And the royal sage then sported with her, as Surya with Prabhavati, Agni with Swaha, Vasava with Sachi, Chandra with Rohini, Yama with Urmila, Varuna with Gauri, Kuvera with Riddhi, Narayana with Lakshmi, Sagara with Jahnavi, Rudra with Rudrani, the Grandsire with Saraswati, Vasishtha's son Saktri with Adrisyanti, Vasishtha with Arundhati called also Akshamala, Chyavana with Sukanya, Pulastya with Sandhya, Agastya with the princess of Vidarbha Lopamudra, Satyavan with Savitri, Bhrigu with Puloma, Kasyapa with Aditi, Richika's son Jamadagni with Renuka, Kusika's son Viswamitra with Himavati, Vrihaspati with Tara, Sukra with Sataprava, Bhumipati with Bhumi, Pururavas with Urvasi, Richika with Satyavati, Manu with Saraswati, Dushyanta with Sakuntala, the eternal Dharma with Dhriti, Nala with Damayanti, Narada, with Satyavati, Jaratkaru with Jaratkaru, Pulastya with Pratichya, Urnayus with Menaka, Tumvuru with Rambha, Vasuki with Satasirsha, Dhananjaya with Kamari, Rama with the princess of Videha Sita, or Janardana with Rukmini.
Mbh.5.149.6685 Yadu, O best of the Bharatas, was born of Devayani and, therefore, O sire, was the daughter's son of Sukra, otherwise called Kavya, of immeasurable energy.
Mbh.6.3.116 The planet Sukra, ascending towards Purva Bhadra, shineth brilliantly, and wheeling towards the Uttara Bhadra, looketh towards it, having effected a junction with a smaller planet.
Mbh.6.45.2239 And they encountered each other with great wrath and looked like the planets Angaraka and Sukra
Mbh.6.45.2257 And the battle that took place between them was terrible and fierce, and productive of satisfaction in the hearts of all the spectators and resembling a conflict between the planets Sukra and Angaraka.
Mbh.6.83.4317 And so also the Pandavas were incapable of looking at Santanu's son Bhishma of white steeds and white bow and resembling the planet Sukra risen in the firmament.
Mbh.6.102.5478 Then Drona and Partha encountered each other in fierce combat like the planets Budha and Sukra, O king, in the firmament
Mbh.7.5.178 Who is there worthy of becoming a leader, when the invincible Drona, that foremost of persons conversant with Brahma, is here, that one who is equal to Sukra or Vrihaspati himself?
Mbh.7.82.3624 Mounted on that best of cars with those two friends, that slayer of large bodies of foes, viz, Partha, proceeded for achieving the slaughter of the ruler of the Sindhus, like Soma rising in the firmament with Budha and Sukra, for destroying the gloom of night, or like Indra proceeding with Varuna and Surya to the great battle with the Asuras occasioned by the abduction of Taraka the wife of Vrihaspati.
Mbh.9.37.2750 The high-souled Kavi Sukra had performed his ascetic penances there.
Mbh.9.37.2752 While residing there, Sukra meditated upon the war of the Daityas and the Danavas with the gods.
Mbh.12.47.2294 Surrounded by Vyasa conversant with the Vedas by the celestial Rishi Narada, by Devasthana, by Asmaka Sumantu, by Jaimini, by the high-souled Paila, by Sandilya, by Devarata, by Maitreya of great intelligence, by Asita and Vasishtha and the high-souled Kausika, by Harita and Lomasa and Atri's son of great intelligence, by Vrihaspati and Sukra and the great sage Chyavana, by Sanatkumara and Kapila and Valmiki and Tumvuru and Kuru, by Maudgalya and Rama of Bhrigu's race, and the great sage Trinavindu, by Pippalada and Vayu and Samvarta and Pulaha and Katha, by Kasyapa and Pulastya and Kratu and Daksha and Parasara, by Marichi and Angiras and Kasmya and Gautama and the sage Galava, by Dhaumya and Vibhanda and Mandavya and Dhaumra and Krishnanubhautika, by Uluka, that foremost of Brahmanas and the great sage Markandeya, by Bhaskari and Purana and Krishna and Suta, that foremost of virtuous persons, surrounded by these and many other highly-blessed sages of great souls and possessed of faith and self-restraint and tranquillity of mind, the Kuru hero looked like the Moon in the midst of the planets and the stars.
Mbh.12.58.3228 Then Sukra, that vast receptacle of Brahma, became his priest.
Mbh.12.99.5545 The troops should be placed in such a position that the wind, the sun, and the planet Sukra should blow and shine from behind them.
Mbh.12.99.5546 As means for ensuing victory the wind is superior to the Sun, and the Sun is superior to Sukra, O Yudhishthira.
Mbh.12.123.7024 Sukra then, with joined hands, approached Vrihaspati.
Mbh.12.123.7048 On the other hand, I accept and follow the counsels of policy they declare unto Me based upon the teachings of Sukra.
Mbh.12.123.7050 I am ever obedient to the teachings of Sukra.
Mbh.12.123.7058 Even this is nectar on earth, even this is the clearest eye, viz, listening to the teaching of Sukra from the lips of Brahmanas and acting according to them.
