Mbh.3.187.9379 And, O bull among men, urged by the Supreme Lord those clouds roaring frightfully, soon flood over the entire surface of the earth.
Mbh.3.199.10259 Some obtaining a knowledge of identity with the Supreme Soul from but two letters of the Vedas and some from hundreds and thousands of rhythmic lines, acquire salvation, for the knowledge of one's identity with the Supreme Soul is the sure indication of salvation.
Mbh.3.199.10261 And belief of one's identity with the Supreme Soul is the indication of salvation.
Mbh.3.199.10267 The Vedas are the Supreme Soul; they are His body; they are the Truth.

Mbh.3.202.10404 O thou that art the Supreme Deity, we are disposed to grant thee a boon.
Mbh.3.212.10891 And it is the highest of a creature's possessions; it is of the essence of the Supreme Spirit and we adore it.
Mbh.3.212.10906 This is the way by which patient Yogins who have overcome all difficulties, and who view things with an impartial and equal eye, with their souls seated in the brain, find the Supreme Spirit, the Prana and the Apana airs are thus present in the body of all creatures.
Mbh.3.212.10908 Know that sattwa, rajas and tamas, are the attributes of all life and that life is the attribute of spirit, and that the latter again is an attribute of the Supreme Spirit.

Mbh.3.212.10925 They call these the attributes of the Supreme Spirit.

Mbh.3.270.13166 And the great god Vishnu who is the Infinite Spirit, the Lord Preceptor of all the gods, is the Supreme Being without attributes, and the Soul of the Universe, and existeth pervading the whole creation.
Mbh.3.270.13170 When at the close of four thousand Yugas the Earth thus became flooded with water, like one vast sea, and all mobile creatures were hushed in death, and the sun and the moon and the winds were all destroyed, and the Universe was devoid of planets and stars, the Supreme Being called Narayana, unknowable by the senses, adorned with a thousand heads and as many eyes and legs, became desirous of rest.
Mbh.3.270.13180 The Supreme Spirit hath three conditions.
Mbh.4.6.212 SECTION VI Vaisampayana said, And while Yudhishthira was on his way to the delightful city of Virata, he began to praise mentally the Divine Durga, the Supreme Goddess of the Universe, born on the womb of Yasoda, and fond of the boons bestowed on her by Narayana, sprung from the race of cowherd Nanda, and the giver of prosperity, the enhancer of the glory of the worshipper's family, the terrifier of Kansa, and the destroyer of Asuras, and saluted the Goddess, her who ascended the skies when dashed by Kansa on a stony platform, who is the sister of Vasudeva, one who is always decked in celestial garlands and attired in celestial robes, who is armed with scimitar and shield, and always rescues the worshipper sunk in sin, like a cow in the mire, who in the hours of distress calls upon that eternal giver of blessings for relieving him of their burdens.
Mbh.4.6.243 And as I bow to thee with bended head, O Supreme Goddess, grant me protection, O thou of eyes like lotus leaves.
Mbh.5.6.139 And finally, of practical men those knowing the Supreme Being are superior.
Mbh.5.10.393 And afflicted with the dread of Vritra, they said unto the Supreme Lord of the deities.
Mbh.5.29.1242 If he be possessed of a virtuous soul, and if he practise the holy virtues, he may easily attain the religion of the Supreme Being.
Mbh.5.31.1382 SECTION XXXI Yudhishthira said, O Sanjaya, the righteous and the unrighteous, the young and the old, the weak and the strong, are all under the control of the Creator, It is that Supreme Lord who imparteth knowledge to the child and childishness to the learned, according to his own will.
Mbh.5.37.1957 One should, for obtaining the favours of the Supreme Being, do that which is for the good of all creatures as also for his own happiness, for it is this which is the root of the successful of all one's objects.
Mbh.5.42.2288 All this that appears is nothing but that everlasting Supreme Soul.
Mbh.5.42.2289 Indeed, the universe is created by the Supreme Soul itself undergoing transformations.
Mbh.5.42.2290 The Vedas to attribute this power of self-transformation to the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.5.42.2314 What other Brahmana deserveth to know the Supreme Soul, that is unconditioned, without attributes, unchangeable, one and alone, and without duality of any kind?
Mbh.5.42.2315 In consequence of such practices, a Kshatriya can know the Supreme Soul and behold it in his own soul.
Mbh.5.43.2339 Sanat-sujata said, Since the Supreme Soul cannot be penetrated by both the Vedas and the mind, it is for this that Soul itself is called mauna.
Mbh.5.43.2346 Sanat-sujata said, O magnanimous one, this universe hath sprung from that Supreme Soul by the union of Conditions respecting name, form, and other attributes.
Mbh.5.43.2347 The Vedas also, pointing it out duly, declare the same, and inculcate that the Supreme Soul and the universe are different and not identical.
Mbh.5.43.2348 It is for attaining to that Supreme Soul that asceticism and sacrifices are ordained, and it is by these two that the man of learning earneth virtue.
Mbh.5.43.2350 The man of knowledge, by the aid of knowledge, attaineth to the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.5.43.2404 Dhritarashtra said, With Akhyana Puranas as their fifth, the Vedas declare the Supreme Soul to be this universe consisting of mobile and immobile things.
Mbh.5.43.2436 As the branch of a particular tree is sometimes resorted to for pointing out the lunar digit of the first day of the lighted fortnight so the Vedas are used for indicating the highest attributes of the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.5.43.2440 Beyond the conception of even the Vedas, the man of Yoga-meditation only can behold the Supreme.
Mbh.5.44.2465 Sanat-sujata said, They, who, residing in the abodes of their preceptors and winning their good will and friendship, practise Brahmacharya austerities, become even in this world the embodiments of Brahman and casting off their bodies are united with the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.5.46.2587 The vital air called Apana is swallowed up by the Air called Prana; Prana is swallowed up by the Will, and the Will by the Intellect, and the Intellect by the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.5.46.2589 The Supreme Soul endued with four legs, called respectively Waking, Dream, profound Sleep, and Turiya, like unto a swan, treading above the unfathomable ocean of worldly affairs doth not put forth one leg that is hid deep.
Mbh.5.46.2593 That Supreme Controller, worthy of reverential hymns, capable of everything when vested with accidents and the prime cause of everything, is manifest as Knowledge in creature-Souls.
Mbh.5.46.2596 Yet in all men the Supreme Soul may be seen equally.
Mbh.5.46.2601 The Supreme Soul hath another name, viz, Pure Knowledge.
Mbh.5.46.2616 That Supreme Soul which is undying, that Eternal One endued with Divinity, is beheld by Yogins by their mental eye.
Mbh.5.51.2912 They that will rush to battle with Death himself in that human shape, are certainly doomed to destruction by the Supreme Ordainer, like animals within the lion's view.
Mbh.5.52.2972 Kiritin, appearing as a foe in battle, will vomit innumerable arrows and become irresistible like all destroying Death urged forward by the Supreme Ordainer.
Mbh.5.69.3472 SECTION LXIX Dhritarashtra said, How hast thou, O Sanjaya, been able to know Madhava as the Supreme Lord of the universe?
Mbh.5.70.3517 That Supreme Soul is called Damodara because unlike the gods his effulgence is increate and his own, and also because he hath self-control and great splendour.
Mbh.5.105.4843 The Supreme Lord of all creatures hath, from the beginning, ordained what my food is to be.
Mbh.5.118.5304 The Supreme Ordainer, however, is all-powerful.
Mbh.5.161.7240 It is the Supreme Ordainer alone who by his fiat of will maketh things hostile friendly subservient.
Mbh.5.162.7305 It is the Supreme Ordainer alone who by his fiat maketh things hostile friendly and subservient.
Mbh.6.6.381 The Supreme Lord hath himself made the arrangement with reference to that inconceivable and celestial stream.
Mbh.6.12.653 The Supreme Prajapati himself, upraising the rod of chastisement, always dwelleth there, protecting those islands.
Mbh.6.26.1214 Even the passion recedes from one who has beheld the Supreme being
Mbh.6.26.1232 Abiding in it one obtains, on death, absorption into the Supreme Self'
Mbh.6.27.1256 Therefore, the all-pervading Supreme Being is installed in sacrifice
Mbh.6.27.1262 The man who performeth work without attachment, attaineth to the Supreme.
Mbh.6.29.1371 The ascetic who is engaged in devotion by action reacheth the Supreme Being without delay.
Mbh.6.29.1384 But of whomsoever that ignorance hath been destroyed by knowledge of self, that knowledge which is like the Sun discloseth the Supreme Being.
Mbh.6.32.1493 The Holy One said, Brahman is the Supreme and indestructible.
Mbh.6.32.1501 Thinking of the Supreme with a mind not running to other objects and endued with abstraction in the form of uninterrupted application, one goeth, O son of Pritha, unto the Divine and Supreme male Being.
Mbh.6.32.1502 He who at the time of his departure, with a steady mind, endued with reverence, with power of abstraction, and directing the life-breath called Prana between the eye-brows, thinketh of that ancient seer, who is the ruler of all, who is minuter than the minutest atom, who is the ordainer of all, who is inconceivable in form, and who is beyond all darkness, cometh unto that Divine and Supreme Male Being, I will tell thee in brief about that seat which persons conversant with the Vedas declare to be indestructible, which is entered by ascetics freed from all longings, and in expectation of which people practise the vows of Brahmacharins.
Mbh.6.32.1513 That is my Supreme seat.
Mbh.6.32.1514 That Supreme Being, O son of Pritha, He within whom are all entities, and by whom all this is permeated, is to be attained by reverence undirected to any other object.
Mbh.6.32.1522 The meritorious fruit that is prescribed for the study of the Vedas, for sacrifices, for ascetic austerities and for gifts, a devotee knowing all this that hath been said here, attaineth to it all, and also attaineth the Supreme and Primeval seat'
Mbh.6.34.1568 He that knoweth me as the Supreme Lord of the worlds, without birth and beginning, he, undeluded among mortals, is free from all sins.
Mbh.6.34.1579 Arjuna said, Thou art the Supreme Brahma, the Supreme Abode, the Holiest of the Holy, the eternal Male Being Divine, the First of gods Unborn, the Lord.
Mbh.6.34.1610 I am the knowledge of Supreme Spirit among all kinds of knowledge, and the disputation among disputants
Mbh.6.35.1643 Sanjaya continued, Having said this, O monarch, Hari, the mighty Lord of mystic power, then revealed to the son of Pritha his Supreme sovereign form, with many mouths and eyes, many wonderous aspects, many celestial ornaments, many celestial weapons uplifted, wearing celestial garlands and robes, and with unguents of celestial fragrance, full of every wonder, resplendent, infinite, with faces turned on all sides
Mbh.6.35.1651 Thou art indestructible, and the Supreme object of this universe.
Mbh.6.35.1656 At sight of this marvellous and fierce form of thine, O Supreme Soul, the triple world trembleth.
Mbh.6.35.1685 And why should they not bow down to thee, O Supreme Soul, that are greater than even Brahman himself, and the primal cause?
Mbh.6.35.1688 Thou art the First God, the ancient male Being, thou art the Supreme refuge of this universe.
Mbh.6.37.1748 It is the Supreme Brahma having no beginning, who is said to be neither existent nor non-existent; whose hands and feet are on all sides, whose eyes, heads and faces are on all sides, who dwells pervading everything in the world, who is possessed of all the qualities of the senses though devoid of the senses, without attachment yet sustaining all things, without attributes yet enjoying a all attributes without and within all creatures, immobile and mobile, not knowable because of his subtlety, remote yet near, undistributed in all beings, yet remaining as if distributed, who is the sustainer of all beings, the absorber and the creator of all; who is the light of all luminous bodies, who is said to be beyond all darkness; who is knowledge, the Object of knowledge, the End of knowledge and seated in the hearts of all.
Mbh.6.37.1755 The Supreme Purusha in this body is said to be surveyor, approver, supporter, enjoyer, the mighty lord, and also the Supreme Soul
Mbh.6.37.1761 He seeth the Supreme Lord dwelling alike in all beings, the Imperishable in the Perishable.
Mbh.6.37.1765 This inexhaustible Supreme Self, O son of Kunti, being without beginning and without attributes, doth not act, nor is stained even when stationed in the body.
Mbh.6.37.1768 They that, by the eye of knowledge, know the distinction between matter and spirit, and the deliverance from the nature of all entities, attain to the Supreme
Mbh.6.38.1787 When the holder of a body goeth to dissolution while goodness is developed, then he attaineth to the spotless regions of those that know the Supreme.
Mbh.6.39.1808 Those that are free from pride and delusion, that have subdued the evil of attachment, that are steady in the contemplation of the relation of the Supreme to the individual self, from whom desire hath departed, freed from the pairs of opposites known by the names of pleasure and pain and the like, repair, undeluded, to that eternal seat.
Mbh.6.39.1828 But there is another, the Supreme Being, called Paramatman, who was the Eternal Lord, pervading the three worlds, sustaineth them and since I transcend the mutable, and am higher than even the immutable; for this I am celebrated in the world among men and in the Veda as Purushottama the Highest Being.
Mbh.6.65.3580 O thou whose protection extendeth through the whole Universe, O thou that hath the Universe for thy work, O thou that hath thy soul under control, Thou art the Supreme Master of the Universe.
Mbh.6.65.3583 Victory to Thee that art the Supreme God of the Universe.
Mbh.6.65.3598 O thou that art busy in creation and destruction, O controller of all wishes, O Supreme Lord, O thou that art the Cause of Amrita, O thou that art All-existent, O thou that art the first that appears at the end of the Yuga, O thou that art the giver of victory, O Divine Lord of the Lord of all creatures, O thou that hast the lotus springing from thy navel, O thou of mighty strength, O thou that art sprung from Thyself, O thou that art the great elements in their primeval state, O thou that art the soul of all religious rites, victory to Thee that givest all.
Mbh.6.66.3627 We desire to hear, Thus addressed, the illustrious Grandsire replied unto all the Gods, the regenerate Rishis, and the Gandharvas, in sweet words saying, He who is called TAT, He who is Supreme, He who is existent at present and who will be for all time, He who is the highest Self, He who is the Soul of beings, and who is the great Lord, I was talking even with His ever-cheerful self, ye bulls among gods.
Mbh.6.66.3634 He, from whose Self, I, Brahman, the Lord of the whole Universe, have sprung that Vasudeva, that Supreme God of all the worlds, is worthy of your adoration.
Mbh.6.66.3636 He is the Supreme Mystery, the Supreme refuge, the Supreme Brahma, and the Supreme glory.
Mbh.6.66.3639 The divine Artificer hath sung of him as the Supreme Energy, the Supreme Felicity, and the Supreme Truth.
Mbh.6.66.3650 Having learnt all this and heard of the illustrious Vasudeva as the Eternal Lord, the Supreme God of all the worlds, and the great Master, from whom hath sprung Brahman himself, the Father of the Universe, why should not that Vasudeva be adored and worshipped by men?
Mbh.6.66.3657 He is the Supreme Lord of all mobile and immobile creatures, and He is the great Master, He is warrior, He is Victory, He is Victor, and He is the Lord of all nature.
Mbh.6.66.3660 It is by the Yoga of his Supreme Excellence, and the Yoga of his Self, that the sons of Pandu, O king, are supported.
Mbh.6.67.3668 SECTION LXVII Duryodhana said, In all the worlds Vasudeva is spoken of as the Supreme Being.
Mbh.6.67.3670 Bhishma said, Vasudeva is the Supreme Being.
Mbh.6.67.3673 Markandeya speaketh of Govinda as the Most Wonderful and the Most high, as the All-being, as the All-soul, as the Highest soul, and as the Supreme male Being.
Mbh.6.67.3676 That Supreme Being of illustrious soul laid himself down on the waters.
Mbh.6.67.3689 Of Supreme Energy, He it is whom the regenerate ones know by Yoga meditation.
Mbh.6.67.3690 Sprung from the secretions of his ear, the great Asura known by the name of Madhu, fierce and of fierce deeds and entertaining a fierce intent and about to destroy Brahman, was slain by that Supreme Being.
Mbh.6.68.3718 Even thus is that illustrious and Supreme Being, viz, Hari, adored and worshipped by Sanatkumar and other ascetics endued with Yoga.
Mbh.6.99.5275 He is the highest Lord of all, the God of gods, the Supreme Soul and eternal.
Mbh.7.11.422 And since, humbled by devotion, I was suffered to behold Krishna as the Supreme Lord; everything about that feat is well-known to me, myself having witnessed it with my own eyes, O Sanjaya, the end can never be seen of the infinite achievements of Hrishikesa.
Mbh.7.50.2373 When Sthanu fell at Brahma's feet from a desire of doing good to all creatures, the Supreme Deity to that greatest of ascetics, blazing with splendour, said, What wish of thine shall we accomplish, O thou that deservest to have all thy wishes fulfilled?
Mbh.7.51.2406 And while the Supreme Deity exterminated that fire born of his wrath, there came out from the doors of his diverse senses a female who was dark and red and tawny, whose tongue and face and eyes were red, and who was decked with two brilliant ear-rings and diverse other brilliant ornaments.
Mbh.7.52.2512 Knowing this death to be ordained by the Supreme God, cast off, without delay; thy grief for thy dead son'
Mbh.7.77.3350 Of soul wrapt in yoga, that Supreme Lord of all, viz, Vishnu of wide-spread fame, who always did what was agreeable to Jishnu, desirous of benefiting Arjuna, lapsed into yoga, and meditation.
Mbh.7.91.4187 Thus addressed by Brahman, the gods proceeding to Mandara with Brahman in their company, beheld there that heap of energy, that Supreme god endued with the splendour of a million suns.
Mbh.7.146.7656 Thou art the creator of all the worlds, thou art the Supreme Soul, and thou art immutable!
Mbh.7.146.7658 Thou art the Supreme God, thou art the God of gods, and thou art Eternal.
Mbh.7.146.7662 Thou art Supreme, the Ancient one, the Divine-Being, and that which is the Highest of the high.
Mbh.7.146.7663 He that attaineth to that viz, thy Supreme Self hath ordained for him the highest prosperity.
Mbh.7.146.7667 Thou art the Supreme God, thou art the God of the highest gods, thou art the lord of Winged creatures, and the lord of all human beings.
Mbh.7.190.10534 Endued with great effulgence and possessed of high ascetic merit, he had fixed his heart on that Supreme and Ancient Being, viz, Vishnu.
Mbh.7.198.11286 When by those austerities, O sire, he became: like Brahma he then beheld the Master, Origin, and Guardian of the Universe, the Lord of all the gods, the Supreme Deity, who is exceedingly difficult of being gazed at, who is minuter than the minutest and larger than, the largest, who is called Rudra who is the lord of all the superior ones, who is called Hara and Sambhu, who has matted locks on his head, who is the infuser of life into every form, who is the First cause of all immobile: and mobile things, who is irresistible and of frightful aspect, who is of fierce wrath and great Soul, who is the All-destroyer, and of large heart; who beareth the celestial bow and a couple of quivers, who is cased in golden armour, and whose energy is infinite, who holdeth Pinaka, who is; armed with thunderbolt, a blazing trident, battle axe, mace, and a large sword; whose eye-brows are fair, whose locks are matted, who wieldeth the heavy short club, who hath the moon on his forehead, who is clad in tiger-skin, and who is armed with the bludgeon; who is decked with beautiful angadas, who hath snakes for his sacred thread, and who is surrounded by diverse creatures of the universe and by numerous ghosts and spirits, who is the One, who is the abode of ascetic austerities, and who is highly adored by persons of venerable age; who is Water, Heaven, Sky, Earth, Sun, Moon, Wind and Fire, and who is the measure of the duration of the universe.
Mbh.7.198.11291 Then Narayana worshipped that Divine Lord, that First cause of the universe, that giver of boons, that puissant one sporting with the fair-limbed Parvati, that high-souled Being surrounded by large bands of ghosts, spirits, that Unborn one, that Supreme Lord, that Embodiment of the unmanifest, that Essence of all causes, that One of unfading power.
Mbh.7.199.11350 He is called Mahadeva the Supreme Deity, of Supreme Soul, the one only Lord, with matted locks on head, the abode of auspiciousness.
Mbh.7.199.11352 That boon-giving lord of the universe, that Supreme Deity, is also called Hara and Sthanu.
Mbh.7.199.11367 That Supreme Deity, called Mahadeva, is worshipped by followers that are even such.
Mbh.7.199.11389 I will now tell thee, according to my knowledge and as I have heard of them, all the divine deeds of Mahadeva of Supreme wisdom.
Mbh.7.199.11451 That divine and illustrious one is the Supreme Lord of the world.
Mbh.7.199.11454 Beholding Maheswara, and knowing that he was the Supreme Being, the Grandsire Brahma thus adored him: Thou art Sacrifice, O lord, thou art the stay and refuge of the universe.
Mbh.7.199.11492 Men worship that Supreme lord in that place where none but the courageous can go.
Mbh.8.33.1600 And they praised, O king, in the high words of the Vedas, that dispeller of fears in all situations of fear that Universal Soul, that Supreme Soul, that One by whom All this is pervaded with his Soul.
Mbh.8.34.1781 As the illustrious Brahman, the Creator of the worlds, the Grandsire, the Supreme Deity of unfading glory, acted as the driver of Rudra, so do thou restrain the steeds of the high-souled son of Radha like Grandsire restraining those of Rudra.
Mbh.9.36.2660 The Supreme Grandsire had at one time performed a great sacrifice.
Mbh.9.36.2724 Filled with wonder, he said, I do not think that thou art any one else than Rudra, that great and Supreme being!
Mbh.9.41.2998 The Supreme Lord of the universe said unto him, Performing a sacrifice, bathe with due rites, O chief of the celestials, in Aruna, that tirtha which saveth from the fear of sin!
Mbh.11.1.29 Without doubt, I committed great sins in my former lives, for which the Supreme Ordainer has set me to endure such a measure of grief.
Mbh.12.10.414 Indeed, if those duties be censurable, then why should not the Supreme Ordainer be censured
Mbh.12.20.894 The Supreme Ordainer created wealth for sacrifice, and He created man also for taking care of that wealth and for performing sacrifice.
Mbh.12.25.1085 The Supreme Ordainer has made the course of Time the means of acquisition.
Mbh.12.32.1704 Vyasa said, O Bharata, is the Supreme Being the doer, or is man the doer?
Mbh.12.32.1706 If man, O Bharata, does all acts, good or bad, being urged thereto by the Supreme Being, then the fruits of those acts should attach to the Supreme being himself.
Mbh.12.32.1710 If this be not reasonable, O son of Kunti, that one man should incur the consequence of an act done by another, then, guided by this, thou shouldst throw all responsibility upon the Supreme Being
Mbh.12.32.1711 If, again, man be himself the agent of all his acts virtuous and sinful, then Supreme Director there is none, and, therefore, whatever thou hast done cannot bring evil consequences on thee
Mbh.12.33.1756 And think also how thou hast been forced by the Supreme Ordainer to do such an act as the slaughter of so many human beings.
Mbh.12.47.2302 Thou art the Supreme Lord.
Mbh.12.47.2312 Like gems strung together in a thread, all things that have attributes reside in thee, the Supreme Lord
Mbh.12.47.2317 In the Vaks, the Anuvaks, the Nishads, and Upanishads, thou art regarded as the Supreme Being of irresistible force.
Mbh.12.47.2358 Thou art the Supreme protector of the universe.
Mbh.12.55.2931 Bhishma said, Bowing unto Dharma who is Supreme, unto Krishna who is Brahma in full, and unto the Brahmanas, I shall discourse on the eternal duties of men.
Mbh.12.58.3141 Through loss of the Vedas, O Supreme Lord, righteousness also has been lost.
Mbh.12.63.3501 The Supreme Lord, assuming the form of Indra, showed himself unto him.
Mbh.12.63.3525 If the divine Vishnu of inconceivable energy had not slain all his foes among the Asuras, then the Brahmanas, and Brahman the Creator of the worlds and Kshatriya duties, and the duties that first flowed from the Supreme deity, would all have been destroyed.
Mbh.12.109.6207 They that worship with devotion the god Narayana, that Supreme Lord of all creatures, that origin and destruction of the universe, succeed in overcoming all difficulties.
Mbh.12.166.10033 The Ordainer is Supreme.
Mbh.12.173.10415 Indeed, sorrow is unable to touch him who is conversant with that Supreme Self from which everything springs and unto which everything disappears
Mbh.12.173.10440 What woman is there that regards that Supreme Soul as her dear lord, even when He comes near
Mbh.12.183.11104 Sound inheres like the Supreme Being in all space though attached especially to drums and other instruments.
Mbh.12.186.11221 When freed from those attributes, it comes to be called Paramatman or Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.186.11230 It is the Supreme Soul that has created the seven worlds and sets them agoing.
Mbh.12.187.11267 They amongst them are not Brahmanas that are incapable of understanding that every created thing is Supreme Brahma.
Mbh.12.193.11561 As the tortoise stretches its limbs and withdraws them again, even so the Supreme Soul creates all objects and again withdraws into Himself.
Mbh.12.194.11683 There such a person, restraining speech, sits like a piece of wood, crushing all the senses, and with mind undividedly united by the aid of meditation with the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.196.11767 Yudhishthira said, When the Reciter attains to the essence of that which exists in its own nature without being anything like created or born objects, which is Supreme, which is indescribable and inconceivable, and which dwells in the syllable om forming the subject of both recitation and meditation indeed, when Reciters to a state of Brahma, why is it that they have again to take birth in embodied forms'
Mbh.12.197.11777 Those regions that are owned by the high-souled gods, that are of diverse aspects and colours, of diverse descriptions and productive of diverse fruits, and that are of great excellence, those ears again that: move at the will of the riders, those beautiful mansions and hells, those various pleasure-gardens embellished with golden lotuses, those regions that belong to the four Regents and Sukra and Vrihaspati and the Maruts and Viswedevas and Sadhyas and the Aswins, and the Rudras and the Adityas and the Vasus, and other denizens of heaven, are, O sire, spoken of as hells, when compared with the region of the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.197.11784 This region is called Supreme.
Mbh.12.198.12078 mistrust respecting the felicity he enjoys and wishes for That Which is Supreme and Immutable, he then enters even That.
Mbh.12.198.12083 Transcending the Creator Brahman, he attains to absorption into the One Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.198.12084 Or, if under the influence of attachments, he wishes not for such absorption, but desires to have a separate existence as dependent on that Supreme Cause of everything, then obtains the fruition of everything for which he cherishes a wish.
Mbh.12.200.12156 I have no knowledge of that Ancient and Supreme one.
Mbh.12.201.12233 As again, one beholds both smoke and fire in wood by rubbing it against another piece, so a person of well-directed intelligence and wisdom, by uniting by means of yoga the senses and the soul, may view the Supreme Soul which, of course, exists in its own nature
Mbh.12.201.12257 The mind follows the lead of the Understanding, and the Understanding follows the lead of That which exists in its true and undefiled nature viz, the Supreme Soul
Mbh.12.202.12262 When the senses are all suspended in respect of their functions the Supreme the Soul, in the form of the Understanding, exists in its own true nature.
Mbh.12.203.12326 In consequence of attachment to worldly objects, which has a tendency to perpetuate itself, one wishes for things other than those for which one should wish, and accordingly fails to attain to the Supreme
Mbh.12.203.12332 Above the senses is the mind; above the mind is the understanding; above the understanding is the Soul; above the Soul is the Supreme or Great.
Mbh.12.203.12346 All objects that the mind apprehends through the senses are capable of being withdrawn into the mind; the mind can be withdrawn into the understanding; the Understanding can be withdrawn into the Soul, and the Soul into the Supreme
Mbh.12.204.12385 With cleansed soul, one should seek to approach the Supreme Brahma, through the aid afforded by penances, by inferences, by self-restraint, by the practices and observances as laid down for one's own order, and by the Vedas.
Mbh.12.204.12386 Persons of clear vision besides seeing the Supreme within themselves, seek him in even external forms by freeing themselves from attributes.
Mbh.12.204.12387 The Supreme, which is called by the name of Jneya ie, that which should be known, in consequence of the absence of all attributes or of its own nature, can never be apprehended by argument.
Mbh.12.204.12389 When unemancipated from attributes, it falls back from the Supreme.
Mbh.12.204.12391 As in the state called Sushupti deep and dreamless slumber the five senses exist freed from their respective functions, after the same manner the Supreme Brahma exists high above Prakriti, freed from all its attributes.
Mbh.12.204.12396 The original creation of all these flowed from the Supreme.
Mbh.12.205.12420 That Vishnu hath been called the Supreme Brahma.
Mbh.12.205.12438 In consequence of attachment to worldly possessions, of a vision of the joys of the highest heaven, and of coveting something other than Brahma, men do not attain to the Supreme
Mbh.12.205.12451 As the wind keeps away from the fire that is embedded within a piece of wood, even so persons that are agitated by desire for worldly possessions keep away from that which is Supreme.
Mbh.12.205.12459 Through want of power, however, it fails to act when deprived of force by the Supreme and Unchangeable.
Mbh.12.206.12467 Asita-Devala, O son, Valmiki of austere penances, and Markandeya, speak of Govinda as the Most Wonderful and the Supreme.
Mbh.12.206.12478 After that great Being, O mighty-armed one, viz, Consciousness, had sprung, an exceedingly beautiful lotus, possessed of effulgence like the Sun's, grew out of the navel of the Supreme Being floating on the waters.
Mbh.12.206.12481 The foremost of all Beings, viz, the Supreme Divinity, for benefiting Brahman, slew that fierce Asura of fierce deeds, engaged even then in the fierce act of slaying the Grand-sire.
Mbh.12.206.12515 The Supreme Soul of all creatures also made Kuvera the lord of all treasures.
Mbh.12.206.12537 That observer of all the worlds, viz, the celestial Rishi Narada, has said that Krishna is the Supreme God
Mbh.12.208.12615 That Supreme Deity, rushing to the spot whither those wretches among Danavas, of terrible aspect, are dwelling in thousands below the earth, will slay them all'
Mbh.12.208.12624 Then that Supreme God of all the gods, having yoga for his soul and yoga for his companion, became rapt in yoga, O chief of the Bharatas, and began to utter tremendous roars, agitating those Daityas and Danavas.
Mbh.12.208.12642 The Grandsire said, That is the Supreme God, the Creator of all beings, the soul of all creatures, the foremost of all yogins.
Mbh.12.208.12647 That Supreme God, of immeasurable splendour, that great refuge of all blessings, having achieved a most difficult feat that is incapable of being accomplished by others, has returned to his own unmixed nature
Mbh.12.209.12673 Vasudeva is the Supreme cause of the universe.
Mbh.12.210.12781 Like dust following the wind that moves it, the creature-Soul, divested of body, but endued still with inclinations born of Passion and Darkness and with principles of causes constituted by the acts of the life that is over, moves on, following the direction that the Supreme Soul gives it.
Mbh.12.211.12816 The fivefold elements, the senses, the attributes of Goodness, Passion, and Darkness, the three worlds with the Supreme Being himself, and acts, all rest on Self-consciousness
Mbh.12.212.12850 By obtaining purity, a person succeeds in arriving at the knowledge of the Supreme Soul which is resplendent with effulgence, incapable of deterioration, without change, pervading all things, having the unmanifest for his refuge, and the foremost of all the deities.
Mbh.12.215.13023 When darkness or ignorance has been transcended, the embodied Soul becomes Supreme Brahma, the cause of the universe
Mbh.12.216.13061 As regards Purusha and the Supreme Soul again, both of them are in-comprehensible.
Mbh.12.216.13096 The yogin who has transcended the necessity of depending on the body, who has cast off all attachments, and whose mind is devoted to yoga abstraction, should be known as another instance of Infinity, as the Supreme Divinity, or as that which it Unmanifest
Mbh.12.226.13819 If the ostensible doer of an act is the real actor thereof, that doer then would not himself be the work of some one else viz, the Supreme Being.
Mbh.12.226.13820 Hence, because the ostensible doer is himself the product of another, that another is the Supreme Being above whom there is nothing higher.
Mbh.12.231.14390 Indeed, the Supreme Master of all beings, in the beginning, created all things from the words of the Vedas.
Mbh.12.231.14399 One that is conversant with Brahma represented by sound succeeds in attaining to Brahma that is Supreme.
Mbh.12.232.14424 SECTION CCXXXIII Vyasa said, I shall now tell thee, how, when his day is gone and his night comes, he withdraws all things unto himself, or how the Supreme Lord, making this gross universe exceedingly subtile, merges everything into his Soul.
Mbh.12.232.14450 That is Unmanifest and Supreme Brahma.
Mbh.12.232.14453 Truly hath this, which should be conceived with the aid of the scriptures and which is a topic of Science, been thus declared by Yogins possessed of Supreme Souls, after actual experience.
Mbh.12.235.14592 In consequence of this, the Manifest becomes merged into the Unmanifest or Supreme Soul from which the world emanates and becomes what is called Manifest
Mbh.12.235.14601 This soul is called Manifest, and it is born of the Unmanifest Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.238.14758 One occupies that much of the Supreme Soul as is commensurate with what is occupied in one's own soul by Vedic soundHe
Mbh.12.238.14776 Indestructible and destructible, these are the dual forms of existence of the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.238.14779 Men of wisdom who are capable of beholding the other shore say that the Unborn or the Supreme Soul becomes invested with the attribute of action in consequence of motion, pleasure and pain, variety of form, and the nine well-known possessions
Mbh.12.240.14855 whither is Brahma which is Supreme, Unmanifest, immutable, ever-existent, imperceptible, above the reach of pain, immortal, and transcending destruction; whither all become freed from the influence of all pairs of opposites Like pleasure and pain, etc,
Mbh.12.240.14866 The individual soul, in its turn, comes from the Supreme Soul
Mbh.12.244.15054 He should betake himself to penances, with heart fixed on the Supreme
Mbh.12.244.15093 They who apprehend the Jiva-soul that is endued with effulgence, that is enveloped in three cases, that has three attributes for its characteristics, to be Iswara partaking of that which is foremost, viz, the nature of the Supreme Soul, becomes object of great regard in all the worlds.
Mbh.12.244.15095 He who succeeds in beholding in the soul that resides in his own body all the Vedas, space and the other objects of perception, the rituals that occur in scriptures, all those entities that are comprehensible in sound only and the superior nature of the Supreme Soul, is sought to be worshipped by the very deities as the foremost of all beings.
Mbh.12.244.15098 The Supreme Soul is the capacious unconsciousness of dreamless slumber.
Mbh.12.244.15107 Such a man succeeds in beholding the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.245.15126 The Supreme Soul is concealed in every creature.
Mbh.12.245.15128 Only Yogins with subtile vision behold the Supreme Soul with the aid of their keen and subtile understanding.
Mbh.12.247.15229 The mind must make a lamp of the senses for dispelling the darkness that shuts out the knowledge of the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.249.15294 When the senses and the mind, withdrawn from the pastures among which they usually run loose, come back for residing in their proper abode, it is then that thou wilt behold in thy own self the Eternal and Supreme Soul
Mbh.12.249.15295 Those high-souled Brahmanas that are possessed of wisdom succeed in beholding that Supreme and Universal Soul which is like unto a blazing fire in effulgence.
Mbh.12.252.15412 Men overwhelmed by the qualities of Rajas and Tamas never succeed in beholding within the gross body: the Jiva-soul which is a portion of the Supreme Soul of transcendent effulgence and which lies within the heart of every creature.
Mbh.12.252.15415 Having comprehended the seven subtile entities viz, the senses, the objects of the mind, Mind, Understanding, Mahat, Unmanifest or Prakriti, and Purusha, having comprehended also the Supreme cause of the universe with the six attributes viz, omniscience, contentment, unlimited comprehension, independence, eternal wakefulness, and omnipotence, and lastly having understood that the universe is only a modification of Avidya endued with the three qualities, one succeeds in beholding guided by the scriptures, high Brahma
Mbh.12.254.15466 Carefully attending, however, in this world to all that I have said unto thee about the Supreme Brahma, do thou, after attaining to the puissance that the knowledge of Brahma offers, seek to win tranquillity of heart
Mbh.12.263.16014 The' Supreme Lord of all creatures viz, Brahman then told them that they had committed an error.
Mbh.12.264.16058 The leaves and flowers of such trees as have been indicated in the Vedas, whatever act is regarded as worthy and whatever else is held as pure by persons of pure hearts and cleansed natures and those eminent for knowledge and holiness, are all worthy of being offered to the Supreme Deity and not unworthy of His acceptance
Mbh.12.267.16306 What can anybody say by way of censure or praise with respect to the contents of the Vedas when these happen to be the words of the Supreme Being himself who is freed from desire of fruit, who is without the fever of envy and aversion, who is addicted to nothing, and who is destitute of all exertion in consequence of the immediate fruition of all his wishes'
Mbh.12.268.16392 By disregarding the Vedas, by guile, or by deception, one never succeeds in attaining to the Supreme.
Mbh.12.269.16511 Brahma is of two kinds, viz, Brahma as represented by sound, and Brahma as Supreme and intangible
Mbh.12.269.16512 One conversant with Brahma represented by sound succeeds in attaining to Supreme Brahma.
Mbh.12.274.16803 Asita said, Those from which the Supreme Soul, when the time comes, moved by the desire of existence in manifold, forms, creates all creatures, are said by persons conversant with objects to be the five great essences
Mbh.12.279.17093 The Supreme Lord creates all creatures mobile and immobile.
Mbh.12.279.17096 He is the universal Destroyer, the Refuge of all things, the Supreme Ordainer, and pure Chit
Mbh.12.279.17199 That Vishnu is the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.279.17206 Staying there, the Supreme Soul, with his own energy, creates all these diverse existent things
Mbh.12.279.17213 Freed as He is from limitations of every kind such as the possession of attributes would imply, he suffers himself to be invested with Avidya and awakened to Consciousness, Kesava of Supreme Soul creates all things.
Mbh.12.284.17672 The utterers of Brahma say that thou art the Supreme source of Mind, and the Refuge upon which Space, Wind, and Light rest.
Mbh.12.284.17748 Thou art Dhatri, and Vidhatri, and Sandhatri, Vidhatri, and the Refuge of all things in the form of the Supreme cause, and thou art independent of all Refuge.
Mbh.12.284.17811 I bow repeatedly unto them that dwell in the space amidst the Sun and the Moon, as also in rays of the Sun and the Moon, and them that dwell in the nether regions, and them that have betaken themselves to Renunciation and other superior practices for the sake of the Supreme
Mbh.12.285.17864 Those virtues whose combinations produce the bodies of creatures repeatedly start into existence and repeatedly merge into the original cause of all things, viz, the Supreme Soul
Mbh.12.285.17880 Having created these, the Supreme Deity, O Bharata, united with them Sattwa, Rajas, Tamas, Time, Consciousness of functions, and Mind forming the sixth
Mbh.12.291.18242 The homage in the form of devotion to and concentrated meditation on the Supreme by a person whose mind is dependent on itself and who has cast off the means of livelihood is worthy of high praise, that homage, namely, O regenerate one, which is the result of instructions received from one who has succeeded in transcending acts but not obtained from the mutual discussion of men in the same state of progress
Mbh.12.299.18726 That person whose speech and mind are properly restrained and always devoted to the Supreme, succeeds in attaining to the fruits of the Vedas, Penances, and Renunciation.
Mbh.12.300.18851 This discourse, O king, that is connected with the Supreme Being of mighty energy should be regarded as auspicious.
Mbh.12.300.18853 Prevailing over all things through his contemplation of the Supreme deity, the high-souled Yogin is capable of creating all things
Mbh.12.301.18931 Sattwa then bears them, O thou of pure soul, to the Supreme and puissant Narayana.
Mbh.12.301.18932 The puissant and pure-souled Narayana at last, through himself, bears them to the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.301.18933 Having reached the Supreme Soul, those stainless persons who have by that time become the body of what is called.
Mbh.12.301.18955 All the qualities of Sattwa, all the attributes of the Under-standing, O Bharata, as also those of Mind, and space, and Wind, O thou of righteous soul, and all the attributes of liquid substances, of Water, O Partha, and Of Earth, these senses with these qualities, O Yudhishthira, which inhere to Jiva-souls, are along with the Jiva-soul itself, overwhelmed by the Supreme Soul or Brahma.
Mbh.12.301.18958 Freed from both merit and demerit, the Jiva-soul entering the Supreme Soul which is divested of all attributes, and which is the home of all auspiciousness, does not return thence, O Bharata.
Mbh.12.301.18978 All learned Brahmanas and all righteous men regard it as flowing from Brahma, Supreme, Divine, Infinite, Immutable, and Undeteriorating.
Mbh.12.302.19009 Highly proficient in that department of knowledge which is concerned with the Soul and possessed of certain conclusions in respect of all branches of that science as Maitravaruni, that foremost of Rishis, was seated the king approaching him with joined hands, asked him in humble words, well pronounced and sweet and destitute of all controversial spirit, the question, O holy one, I desire to hear, of Supreme and Eternal Brahma by attaining to which men of wisdom have not to come back.
Mbh.12.303.19096 When the time approaches for universal Destruction, all existent objects and attributes are withdrawn by the Supreme Soul which then exists alone like the Sun withdrawing at evening all his rays; and when the time comes for Creation He once more creates and spreads them out like the Sun shedding and spreading out his rays when morning comes.
Mbh.12.305.19190 When the Supreme Being is without senses, without seed, without matter, without body, He must be divested of all attributes!
Mbh.12.305.19196 The Supreme Soul is different from both the Jiva-soul and the universe.
Mbh.12.305.19198 In this way from the existence of Chaitanya in the body, the Supreme Soul, divested of all attributes whatever and perfectly stainless, is inferred.
Mbh.12.305.19201 When the Jiva-soul conquers all attributes born of Prakriti and which it assumes under error, only then does it behold the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.305.19202 Only the highest Rishis conversant with the Sankhya and the Yoga systems know that Supreme Soul which Sankhya and Yogins and believers in all other systems say is beyond the Understanding, which is regarded as Knower and endued with the highest wisdom in consequence of its casting off all consciousness of identification with Prakriti, which transcends the attribute of Ignorance or Error, which is Unmanifest, which is beyond all attributes, which is called the Supreme, which is dissociated from all attributes, which ordains all things, which is Eternal and Immutable, which overrules Prakriti and all the attributes born of Prakriti, and which, transcending the four and twenty topics of enquiry, forms the twenty-fifth.
Mbh.12.305.19203 When men of knowledge, who stand in fear of birth, of the several conditions of living consciousness, and of death, succeed in knowing the Unmanifest, they succeed in understanding the Supreme Soul at the same time.
Mbh.12.305.19204 An intelligent man regards the unity of Jiva-soul with the Supreme Soul as consistent with the scriptures and as perfectly correct, while the man destitute of intelligence looks upon the two as different from each other.
Mbh.12.306.19240 When persons like ourselves say that there has been a complete identification of the Knower, the Known, and K now-ledge, then is the Yogin said to behold the Supreme Soul
Mbh.12.306.19241 While in Yoga, the Supreme Soul displays itself in the Yogin's heart like a blazing fire, or like the bright Sun, or like the lightning's flame in the sky.
Mbh.12.306.19242 That Supreme Soul which is Unborn and which is the essence of nectar, that is seen by high-souled Brahmanas endued with intelligence and wisdom and conversant with the Vedas, is subtiler than what is subtile and greater than what is great.
Mbh.12.306.19249 By such practices do Yogins succeeded in beholding the Supreme Soul that transcends destruction and decay.
Mbh.12.306.19251 I shall now discourse to thee of that Sankhya philosophy by which the Supreme Soul is seen through the gradual destruction of errors
Mbh.12.306.19261 Created by the Supreme Soul one after another, these principles are destroyed in a reverse order.
Mbh.12.306.19264 The Supreme Being is all that remains when Universal Destruction takes place, and it is He that assumes multifarious forms when Creation starts into life.
Mbh.12.306.19285 The Sankhyas called the cause of the universe, and merging all the grosser principles into the Chit behold the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.306.19288 When he succeeds in knowing that Supreme Soul by dissociating himself from Prakriti, he then becomes identifiable with the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.307.19312 Of Prakriti, and that called Vidhi which is Supreme, the latter should be known as Vidya.
Mbh.12.307.19336 Indeed, when Jiva shows no affection for Prakriti and her principles, he then succeeds in beholding the Supreme and having once beheld Him wishes not to fall away from that felicity.
Mbh.12.307.19340 Fie on me that through ignorance, I have been repeatedly migrating from body to body in forgetfulness of the Supreme Soul!
Mbh.12.307.19341 The Supreme Soul alone is my friend.
Mbh.12.307.19359 The responsibility is mine, since turning away from the Supreme Soul I become of my own accord attached to her.
Mbh.12.307.19370 The twenty-fifth, viz, Jiva, when he thus succeeds in understanding the Supreme, becomes able to cast off the Destructible and attain to identity with that which is Indestructible and which is the essence of all that is auspicious, Destitute of attributes in his true nature and in reality Unmanifest, Jiva becomes invested with what is Manifest and assumes attributes.
Mbh.12.308.19384 In the Yoga scriptures, therefore, both Brahma and Jiva are spoken of, SECTION CCCIX Vasishtha said, Listen now to me as I discourse to thee on Buddhas Supreme Soul and Abuddha Jiva which is the dispensation of attributes of Sattwa, Rajas, and Tamas.
Mbh.12.308.19385 Assuming many forms under the influence of illusion the Supreme Soul, becoming Jiva, regards all those forms as real In consequence of his regarding himself identical with such transformations, Jiva fails to understand the Supreme Soul, for he bears the attributes of Sattwa and Rajas and Tamas and creates and with-draws into himself what he creates.
Mbh.12.308.19390 As regards, however, the Supreme Soul, which is ever disunited and dissociated, and which transcends the twenty-fifth Prakriti can never comprehend it.
Mbh.12.308.19396 When Jiva considers himself different from what he truly is ie when he regards himself as fat or lean, fair or dark a Brahmana or a Sudra, it is only then that he fails to know the Supreme Soul and himself and Prakriti with which he is united.
Mbh.12.308.19401 In consequence of his thus understanding the Unmanifest to be something different from him, he succeeds in acquiring the nature of the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.308.19402 The learned say that when he is freed from the attributes of Sattwa and Rajas and Tamas and united in the nature with the Supreme Soul then does Jiva become identified with that Soul.
Mbh.12.308.19403 The Supreme Soul is called Tattwa as well as Not-Tattwa, and transcends decay and destruction
Mbh.12.308.19413 O ruler of Mithila, when Jiva, who is found to be in union with happiness and misery and who is seldom free from the consciousness of Self, succeeds in attaining to a similarity with the Supreme Soul which is beyond the reach of the understanding, then does he becomes freed from virtue and vice.
Mbh.12.308.19416 I have thus told thee, O sinless one, according to the indication of the Srutis, the nature of the Unintelligent or Prakriti, and of Jiva, so also of that which is Pure Knowledge viz, the Supreme Soul, agreeable to the truth.
Mbh.12.308.19418 The difference between the gnat and the Udumvara, or that between the fish and water, illustrates the difference between the Jiva-soul and the Supreme Soul
Mbh.12.308.19421 The twenty-fifth, which resides in the bodies of living creatures, should be emancipated by making him know the Unmanifest or the Supreme Soul which transcends the understanding.
Mbh.12.308.19450 Jiva, in consequence of his not knowing truly the Supreme Soul which is not subject to decay and death, is obliged to frequently come back into the world.
Mbh.12.308.19462 If in course of time he succeeds in crossing that Ocean of Ignorance in which he is sunk, he then succeeds in avoiding rebirth altogether and attaining to identity with the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.311.19549 SECTION CCCXII Yajnavalkya said, Listen to me, O foremost of men, as I tell thee what the duration of time is in respect to the Unmanifest or the Supreme Purusha.
Mbh.12.312.19601 naturally inhere, who is regarded as the Supreme and pure Effulgence that is Immutable.
Mbh.12.313.19622 I have thus truly expounded to thee, O king, with its details taken individually, the puissance of the Supreme in manifesting Himself in different forms in the beginning, the middle, and the end, O thou that art fully conversant with the nature of the original topics or principles.
Mbh.12.314.19652 Thou hadst asked me about the nature of the Supreme residing in the Unmanifest, viz, Purusha.
Mbh.12.316.19730 Without doubt, one endued with tranquillity, of subdued senses, living in retirement, rejoicing in one's own self, and fully conversant with the import of the scriptures, should regulating one's breath in these four and twenty ways fix one's Soul on the Supreme Soul
Mbh.12.316.19733 Thus merging these one after another, Yogins contemplate the Supreme Soul which is One, which is freed from Rajas, which is stainless, which is Immutable and Infinite and Pure and without defect, who is Eternal Purusha, who is unchangeable, who is Indivisible, who is without decay and death, who is everlasting, who transcends diminution, and which is Immutable Brahma.
Mbh.12.316.19740 As a man of cool courage and determination, while ascending a flight of steps with a vessel full of oil in his hands, does not spill even a drop of the liquid if frightened and threatened by persons armed with weapons even so the Yogin, when his mind has been concentrated and when he beholds the Supreme Soul in Samadhi, does not, in consequence of the entire stoppage of the functions of his senses at such a time, move in the slightest degree.
Mbh.12.316.19742 While in Samadhi, the Yogin beholds Brahma which is Supreme and Immutable, and which is situated like a blazing Effulgence in the midst of thick Darkness.
Mbh.12.317.19770 Knowing all these premonitory symptoms, the man of cleansed soul should day and night unite his soul with the Supreme Soul in Samadhi.
Mbh.12.317.19773 He thus conquers death by fixing his soul on the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.317.19774 Indeed, the man, who is blessed with knowledge of the Soul, O monarch, practises the course of life recommended by the Sankhyas and conquers death by uniting his soul with the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.318.19776 SECTION CCCXIX Yajnavalkya said, Thou hast asked me, O monarch, of that Supreme Brahma which resides in the Unmanifest.
Mbh.12.318.19872 O foremost of Gandharvas, they who study the Vedas with all their branches but who do not know the Supreme Soul from which all things take their birth and into which all things merge when destruction comes, and which is the one object whose knowledge the Vedas seek to inculcate, Indeed, they, who have no acquaintance with that which the Vedas seek to establish, study the Vedas to no purpose and bear their burthen of such study in vain.
Mbh.12.318.19877 O Kasyapa, if one continuously on the nature of the Jiva-soul and its connection with the Supreme Soul, one then succeeds in divesting oneself on all attributes and in beholding the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.318.19878 The Eternal and Unmanifest Supreme Soul is regarded by men of foolish understandings to be different from the twenty-fifth or Jiva-soul.
Mbh.12.318.19880 Frightened at repeated births and deaths, the Sankhyas and Yogins regard the Jiva-soul and the Supreme Soul to be one and the same'
Mbh.12.318.19881 Viswavasu then said, Thou hast, O foremost of Brahmanas, said that Jiva-soul is indestructible and truly undistinguished from the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.318.19910 When the Jiva-soul succeeds in apprehending that it is one, and Prakriti with which it resides is another, then only does it, O regenerate one, succeed in beholding the Supreme Soul and attaining to the condition of Oneness with the universe.
Mbh.12.318.19911 The Supreme is one, O king, and the Twenty-fifth or Jiva-soul is another.
Mbh.12.318.19912 In consequence, however, of the Supreme overlying the Jiva-soul the wise regard both to be one and the same
Mbh.12.318.19913 For these reasons, Yogins, and followers of the Sankhya system of philosophy, terrified by the birth and death, blessed with sight of the Twenty-sixth, pure in body and mind, and devoted to the Supreme Soul, and do not welcome the Jiva-soul as indestructible
Mbh.12.318.19914 When one beholds the Supreme Soul and losing all consciousness of individuality becomes identified with the Supreme, one than becomes omniscient, and possessed of such omniscience one becomes freed from the obligation of rebirth.
Mbh.12.318.19915 I have thus discoursed to thee truly, sinless one, about Prakriti which is unintelligent, and Jiva-soul which is possessed of intelligence, and the Supreme Soul which is endued with omniscience, according to the indications occurring in the Srutis.
Mbh.12.318.19916 That man, who beholds not any difference between the knower or the known, is both Kevala and not-Kevala, is the original cause of the universe, is both Jiva-soul and the Supreme Soul
Mbh.12.318.19972 Only when one succeeds in apprehending the Supreme or Unmanifest, one comes to be regarded with reverence.
Mbh.12.318.19985 Do thou, therefore, adore with reverence that which is Supreme, most pure, blessed, stainless, and sacred, and which transcends all states being Emancipation itself.
Mbh.12.318.19988 The Eternal and Immutable Supreme was the topic about which the great Rishi had discoursed to the king of Mithila.
Mbh.12.320.20092 Notwithstanding the possession of sovereignty, therefore, one becomes cleansed of all sins by means of knowledge alone, living the while in Supreme Brahma.
Mbh.12.320.20212 Whether the Unmanifest or the Manifest be their cause, or whether the two viz, the Supreme or Purusha and the Manifest or atoms be regarded as their cause, or fourthly, whether the four together viz, the Supreme or Purusha and his Maya and Jiva and Avidya or Ignorance be the cause, they that are conversant with Adhyatma behold Prakriti as the cause of all creatures.
Mbh.12.323.20581 Tell me, O grandsire in their proper order, of the greatness, and the knowledge of Suka and of his union with the Supreme Soul
Mbh.12.326.20752 The effulgent ray ie, the Supreme Soul exists in one's Soul and not anywhere else.
Mbh.12.328.20904 The path of the Supreme Soul is called Deva-yana the path of the gods.
Mbh.12.329.21035 That which is called Mahat is due to the action of the Supreme.
Mbh.12.329.21045 Having its roots in knowledge, the puissance is never lost of the man who thus beholds the Supreme in his soul, of the man, that is to say, who always beholds all creatures in all conditions in his own soul
Mbh.12.329.21048 One conversant with Emancipation says that the Supreme Soul is without beginning and without end; that it takes birth as all creatures; that it resides as a witness in the Jiva-soul; that it is inactive, and without form.
Mbh.12.334.21395 All of them obeyed the eternal law of the Supreme God Observing all the rites, in detail, that were ordained in honour of the deities and the Pitris, all those foremost of regenerate persons acquired all those objects which they sought.
Mbh.12.334.21396 The incorporeal denizens of Heaven itself bow to that Supreme deity and through His grace they attain to those fruits and that end which He ordains for them.
Mbh.12.335.21418 Wholly and conclusively devoted to Him, that first of deities, viz, the Supreme Soul, I incessantly adore Him.
Mbh.12.339.21828 He who is the eternal Supreme Soul and is known by the name of Vasudeva.
Mbh.12.339.21860 He is Consciousness, He is Iswara Supreme Lord.
Mbh.12.339.21871 I am the Supreme Lord and the Preceptor of the universe.
Mbh.12.339.21972 He knows that Narayana is the Supreme Soul, that he is the Supreme Lord, that He is the Creator of Brahman himself.
Mbh.12.339.21981 Deities and Munis, who have heard this excellent old narrative, which is a Purana, all adore the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.339.22006 Do ye all adore and worship that Eternal and Supreme Lord of the universe in excellent sacrifices, properly pouring libations of clarified butter into the fire with the aid of mantras and dedicating the same unto Narayana.
Mbh.12.340.22049 He whom both the Sankhyas and those conversant with Yoga call by the name of Paramatma the Supreme Soul comes to be regarded as Mahapurusha the Great Purusha in consequence of his own acts.
Mbh.12.340.22103 The deities and the Rishis and Brahman, in that sacrifice, adored the great God as one endued with the complexion of the Sun, as the foremost of Beings, situate beyond the reach of Tamas, vast, pervading all things, the Supreme Lord of all, the giver of boons, and possessed of puissance.
Mbh.12.340.22186 Having withdrawn the universe into Himself at the end of the Yuga, He goes to sleep, and awakening at the commencement of another Yuga, He once more creates the universe, Do you all bow unto that illustrious one who is possessed of high soul and who transcends the three attributes, who is unborn, whose form is the universe, and who is the abode or refuge of all the denizens of heaven, Do you bow unto Him who is the Supreme Lord of all creatures, who is the Lord of the Adityas, and of the Vasus as well.
Mbh.12.340.22194 He is the Supreme Lord who can be known with the aid of the eye of knowledge alone.
Mbh.12.340.22196 Asked by you, I have told you everything in detail, ye disciples, and do you act according to my words and dutifully serve the Supreme Lord called Hari.
Mbh.12.341.22216 I am desirous of hearing those names of Hari, that Supreme Lord of all creatures.
Mbh.12.341.22220 Arjuna said, O holy one, O Supreme ordainer of the Past and the Future.
Mbh.12.341.22228 Salutations unto Him of great glory, Him, viz, that is the Supreme Soul of all embodied creatures
Mbh.12.341.22233 That attribute is Supreme Nature having for her soul the Sky and Earth and succeeding by her creative forces in upholding the universe.
Mbh.12.342.22624 The cessation of separate conscious existence by identification with Supreme Brahman is the highest attribute or condition for a living agent to attain.
Mbh.12.342.22643 I am the Supreme Lord endued with puissance, and I am the eternal witness of the universe beholding as I do its successive creations and destructions.
Mbh.12.342.22650 Those who are conversant with the science propounded by Kapila call the Supreme Soul by the name of Virincha.
Mbh.12.342.22701 This Nara and Narayana the displayed forms of Supreme Brahman have taken birth in the race of Dharma.
Mbh.12.343.22733 When, however, the celestial Rishi Narada had succeeded in obtaining a sight of the Supreme Lord of the universe, a residing in the form of Aniruddha, why did he again proceed so quickly to the retreat of Vadari on the breast of Himavat for beholding those two foremost of godly of Rishis viz, Nara and Narayana?
Mbh.12.343.22740 As butter is raised from curds, sandal-wood from the mountains of Malaya, the Aranyakas from the Vedas, and nectar from all the medicinal herbs, after the same manner, O ocean of austerities, hath this discourse that is like nectar and that has Narayana for its object, been raised by thee, O Brahmana, from diverse histories and Puranas existing in the world, Narayana is the Supreme Lord.
Mbh.12.343.22754 Indeed, it is evident that the sight he had obtained of the Supreme Lord was due to only the grace of that Being.
Mbh.12.343.22764 Leaving that spot he quickly proceeded, O king, to the mountains of Meru, bearing in his mind those weighty words that Paramatma the Supreme Lord had said unto him.
Mbh.12.343.22793 Nara and Narayana said, Hast thou seen in white Island the Paramatma Supreme Soul, who is eternal and divine, and who is the high source whence we have sprung'
Mbh.12.343.22799 Dismissed by the Supreme Soul, I have today come hither.
Mbh.12.343.22805 They are, again, entirely devoted to the foremost of Beings, viz, the Supreme Lord of the universe.
Mbh.12.343.22807 The holy and Supreme Soul is always fond of those that are devoted to him.
Mbh.12.343.22827 Dismissed by him who is the Supreme Soul, I am coming here.
Mbh.12.344.22836 No one can repair to that realm where the Supreme Soul is engaged in the observance of penances, except we two, O foremost of regenerate persons.
Mbh.12.344.22856 Passing out of Pradyumna, those foremost of regenerate persons, including both those that are conversant with Sankhya philosophy and those that are devoted to the Supreme deity, then enter Sankarsana who is otherwise called Jiva.
Mbh.12.344.22857 After this, divested of the three primal attributes of Sattwa, Rajas, and Tamas, those foremost of regenerate beings quickly enter the Paramatma Supreme Soul otherwise called Kshetrajna and which itself transcends the three primal attributes.
Mbh.12.344.22863 We are thus engaged, O regenerate one, being moved by the desire of benefiting those manifestations of the Supreme Deity, dear to all the celestials, that will occur in the three worlds for achieving diverse feats that are incapable of being achieved by any other Being.
Mbh.12.344.22871 Worshipping the Supreme Deity Narayana, and adoring those two ancient Rishis also that had taken birth in the house of Dharma, the illustrious Rishi Narada, endued with great energy, continued to reside, thus employed, in that retreat, called Vadari, on the breast of Himavat, belonging to Nara and Narayana, for a thousand years as measured by the standard of the celestials
Mbh.12.345.22878 Thou saidst that the rites in honour of the deities constitute the highest sacrifice and are equivalent to the worship of the eternal Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.345.22880 It is from that Supreme Deity that Brahma, the Grandsire of all the worlds, took his rise in days of yore.
Mbh.12.346.22922 SECTION CCCXLVII Vaisampayana said, Having heard these words of Nara and Narayana, the Rishi Narada became filled with devotion towards the Supreme Being.
Mbh.12.346.22946 The Supreme deity Narayana is the Lord of all the foremost of Rishis, and of the three worlds.
Mbh.12.346.22969 Endued with the complexion of the Sun, He is the Supreme Lord, and he is the refuge of all.
Mbh.12.347.22977 SECTION CCCXLVIII Janamejaya said, I have heard from thee the glory of the divine and Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.347.22978 I have heard also of the birth of the Supreme Deity in the house of Dharma, in the form of Nara and Narayana.
Mbh.12.347.22993 Vaisampayana said, All existent objects, O king, in this world, are the result of a combination of the five primal elements, a combination due to the intelligence of the Supreme Lord.
Mbh.12.347.23003 The Unmanifest or Prakriti merges into Purusha Jivatman and Purusha merges into the Supreme Soul or Brahman.
Mbh.12.347.23009 Divested of sex, it is called otherwise by the name of Pradhana Supreme or Primary.
Mbh.12.347.23032 Robbed of the Vedas in this way, Brahma then addressed the Supreme Lord in these words.
Mbh.12.347.23073 Thou art endued with that nature which is Supreme.
Mbh.12.347.23107 Meanwhile, O king, the Supreme Lord with the equine head, otherwise called Hari, who was himself in the nether region, took up all the Vedas.
Mbh.12.347.23109 Having restored the Vedas unto Brahma, the Supreme Lord once more returned to his own nature.
Mbh.12.347.23110 The Supreme Lord also established his form with the equine head in the North-Eastern region of the great ocean.
Mbh.12.347.23117 Possessed of great effulgence and endued with the attribute of stainless Sattwa, the body of the Supreme Lord lay on the excellent hood of a snake that seemed to emit flames of fire for the resplendence attaching to it.
Mbh.12.347.23133 Having compassed the destruction of the two Asuras and restored the Vedas to Brahma, the Supreme Being dispelled the grief of Brahma.
Mbh.12.347.23143 Whatever forms, the Supreme Deity desires to assume with a view to ordaining the various affairs of the universe, he assumes those forms immediately within himself by exercise of his own inherent powers.
Mbh.12.347.23144 The Supreme Deity, endued with every prosperity, is the receptacle of the Vedas.
Mbh.12.347.23163 The presiding deities of Fame, of Beauty, and of Prosperity have the same Supreme Deity for their soul.
Mbh.12.347.23165 The Supreme Being is the cause of all this, as Purusha.
Mbh.12.347.23177 He, is Supreme.
Mbh.12.348.23201 Having created this religion in days of yore, viz, in the Krita age, in perfect consonance with the Samans, it is borne, O king, by the Supreme Lord, viz, Narayana, himself.
Mbh.12.348.23231 Addressing Brahma, the Supreme Narayana said unto him, Do thou, O son, create all kinds of creatures from thy mouth and feet.
Mbh.12.348.23272 It is by means of acts that are well-performed and accomplished with a full knowledge of duties and in which there is nothing of injury to any creature, that Hari the Supreme Lord becomes gratified.
Mbh.12.349.23357 The Supreme Lord, the god of gods, the chief of those endowed with intelligence, then began to think.
Mbh.12.349.23361 Commanded thus by the Supreme Lord, Intelligence forthwith entered Brahma.
Mbh.12.349.23388 In obedience to this command of the Supreme Lord from whose Speech the Rishi Apantaratamas sprang into existence, the latter, in the Kalpa named after the Self-born Manu, distributed and arranged the Vedas.
Mbh.12.349.23399 Thy son, however, will be freed from every attachment like unto the Supreme Soul, through the grace of Madhava.
Mbh.12.349.23418 Having said these words unto the Rishi Apantaratamas, otherwise called by the name of Saraswat, the Supreme Lord dismissed him, saying unto him,
Mbh.12.349.23435 Those persons whose visions, O king, are blinded by darkness, fail to understand that Narayana is the Supreme Soul pervading the entire universe.
Mbh.12.349.23438 The Supreme Deity, called by the name of Hari, resides in the hearts of those that have succeeded with the aid of the scriptures and of inference in dispelling all doubts.
Mbh.12.350.23450 In the same manner in which the many Purushas are said to have one origin in the Supreme Purusha, it may be said that this entire universe is identical with that one Purusha of superior attributes.
Mbh.12.351.23497 The Supreme Purusha is said to be one that can be seen with the aid of knowledge alone.
Mbh.12.351.23529 The truth is that he who is the Supreme Soul is always divested of attributes.
Mbh.12.351.23534 That Soul is sometimes engaged in acts and when it succeeds in casting off acts attains to Emancipation or identity with the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.351.23549 What has previously, O son, been named Pradhana, and is the mother of the Mahat tattwa is no other than the Effulgence of the Supreme Soul; because He it is who is eternal, without destruction and any end and ever immutable.
Mbh.12.360.23816 I have come here, ignorant as I am with all things, for asking thee about something, O Naga, relying on the Jiva-soul, I desire to attain to the Supreme Soul which is the end of the Jiva-soul.
Mbh.12.361.23828 What can be more wonderful than this that the Supreme Soul, from within the solar disc, himself bathed in blazing effulgence, looketh upon the universe?
Mbh.12.363.23879 Myself, thyself, and all other creatures, shall all have to enter into the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.13.14.854 He is indestructible and Supreme Brahman.
Mbh.13.14.877 Verily, O king, only he is able to discourse on the puissance, in its entirety of the Supreme deity'
Mbh.13.14.1133 He is the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.13.14.1183 Indra said, What reason canst thou assign for the existence of a Supreme Being or for His being the cause of all causes
Mbh.13.14.1185 I solicit boons from Him who is without beginning and middle and end, who is Knowledge and Puissance, who is inconceivable and who is the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.13.14.1192 Who else than that Supreme Lord could be creator of Fire, Water, Wind, Earth, Space, Mind, and that which is called Mahat?
Mbh.13.14.1198 Tell me who is there that is superior to the Supreme Lord
Mbh.13.14.1201 Tell us who is higher than the Supreme Lord?
Mbh.13.14.1266 That person who says that there is, in the three worlds with their mobile and immobile creatures, any other cause than the Supreme Lord, and that which is not marked with the mark of either Mahadeva or his spouse should be regarded as very wretched and should not be counted among the creatures of the universe.
Mbh.13.14.1289 The energy of the Supreme Lord looked like the Samvartaka fire which destroys all creatures at the end of the Yuga.
Mbh.13.14.1408 O Supreme Lord, it behoveth thee to pardon all those transgressions of which I have been guilty, taking compassion upon me on the ground of my being thy devoted worshipper.
Mbh.13.14.1462 O thou of mighty arms, all these are endued with a celestial nature through the grace of that god of gods, that Supreme Lord, that high-souled Deity'
Mbh.13.14.1512 Innumerable masters of Yoga, all the regenerate Rishis with their children, all the celestial Rishis, the goddess Earth, the Sky between Earth and Heaven, the Constellations, the Planets, the Months, the Fortnights, the Seasons, Night, the Years, the Kshanas, the Muhurtas, the Nimeshas, the Yugas one after another, all the celestial Sciences and branches of knowledge, and all beings conversant with Truth, were seen bowing down unto that Supreme Preceptor, that great Father, that giver or origin of Yoga.
Mbh.13.16.1584 Thinking, with the aid of his penances, of Him who is the supreme Soul and who is immutable and undeteriorating, Tandi became filled with wonder, and said these words, I seek the protection of Him whom the Sankhyas describe and the Yogins think of as the Supreme, the Foremost, the Purusha, the pervader of all things, and the Master of all existent objects, of him who, the learned say, is the cause of both the creation and the destruction of the universe; of him who is superior to all the celestials, the Asuras, and the Munis, of him who has nothing higher, who is unborn, who is the Lord of all things, who has neither beginning nor end, and who is endued with supreme puissance, who is possessed of the highest felicity, and who is effulgent and sinless,
Mbh.13.16.1617 Alas, so long I was steeped in Ignorance; for this long period I was a senseless fool, since I had no knowledge of thee that art the Supreme Deity, thee that art the only eternal Entity as can be only known by all persons endued with wisdom.
Mbh.13.16.1631 Verily, thou art that Supreme Lord who is identical with that refuge.
Mbh.13.16.1667 Thou art the Lord, and thou art Supreme.
Mbh.13.17.1733 With those names I shall adore him who is Supreme Brahman, who has been declared unto the universe by the Vedas, and who is Eternal.
Mbh.13.17.1736 Thou art a devoted worshipper of the Supreme Deity.
Mbh.13.17.1744 The Supreme Lord is incapable of being adored by any one if he does not grant his permission to the adorer.
Mbh.13.17.1755 That creature, O Krishna, who cherishes malice towards the illustrious Mahadeva who is the original cause of everything, who is the Supreme Soul, and who is the great Lord, has certainly to go to hell with all his ancestors before and all his children after him.
Mbh.13.17.1864 Thou art Supreme Brahman being a state of pure felicitous existence
Mbh.13.17.1900 Thou art the Supreme Lord of even Indra and the other celestials.
Mbh.13.17.2028 Thou art Supreme.
Mbh.13.17.2253 Thou art he that unites Jiva with Supreme Brahman through Yoga.
Mbh.13.17.2254 Thou art identifiable with that Yoga which causes such a union between Jiva and Supreme Brahman.
Mbh.13.18.2871 Their dispositions being stained by the attributes of Rajas and Tamas, they can never approach the Supreme Deity.
Mbh.13.18.2872 It is only those regenerate persons who are of cleansed souls that succeed in attaining to the Supreme Deity.
Mbh.13.18.2873 Even if a person lives in the enjoyment of every pleasure and luxury, yet if he be devoted to the Supreme Deity, he comes to be regarded as the equal of forest recluses of cleansed souls.
Mbh.13.26.3642 Having, with austere penances, gratified all the deities with the Supreme Lord Vishnu, Bhagiratha brought Ganga down on the Earth.
Mbh.13.74.6825 The holy Brahman, the Supreme Lord, had said so unto Indra on the subject of kine
Mbh.13.85.7751 Vasishtha continued, This history also, O Rama, called Brahmadarsana, was heard by me in days of yore, respecting the achievement of the Grandsire Brahman who is identifiable with the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.13.85.7808 The first Creator of the universe declared Agni to be Supreme Brahma and Eternal, and the giver of all wishes.
Mbh.13.103.9252 Asked by the Supreme Ordainer of all things, I have duly expounded the merits of the vow of fast.
Mbh.13.137.11339 The Rishi Atreya revered by all, attained, O monarch, to the excellent celestial regions, by imparting the knowledge of the unconditional Supreme Being to his pupils.
Mbh.13.139.11459 If I behold anything on earth or in heaven, which is highly delightful and of wonderful aspect but which is unknown to all of you, ye Rishis that look like so many gods, I say that that is in consequence of my own Supreme Nature which is incapable of being obstructed by anything.
Mbh.13.141.11729 His mind is devoted to Supreme Brahman.
Mbh.13.141.11737 He merges the existence of his own soul into the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.13.146.12153 Mahadeva said, Thou, O goddess, art conversant with what is Supreme and what is not
Mbh.13.147.12258 He is the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.13.147.12261 He is the Supreme Lord.
Mbh.13.147.12361 Though possessed of great energy and might, Garuda, however, failed to find out the end of this illustrious one who is identical with the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.13.149.12502 By always worshipping with reverence and devotion that immutable Being, by meditating on him, by hymning His praises and bowing the head unto Him, and by performing sacrifices unto Him, indeed by always praising Vishnu, who is without beginning and without end or destruction, who is the Supreme Lord of all the worlds, and who is the Master and Controller of the universe, one can succeed in transcending all sorrow.
