MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.3.21.1041 For, O thou tiger among men, these living, even the bearer himself of the thunderbolt could by no means destroy Suta's son Vasudeva!
Mbh.3.36.1878 O Vrikodara, I cannot sleep thinking of the lightness of hand of that Suta's son, who, I regard, is the foremost of all wielders of the bow
Mbh.3.134.6827 And seeing Ashtavakra speaking and the Suta's son silent, and pensive, and with head downcast, the assembly broke into a long uproar.
Mbh.3.134.6866 And having thus defeated the Suta's son
Mbh.3.234.11865 Alas Duryodhana, and Sakuni, and the Suta's son, and Dussasana also of wicked soul, in robbing the Pandavas of their kingdom by means of dice, seem to behold the honey alone without marking the terrible ruin.
Mbh.3.239.12024 And the Suta's son, owing to his extreme lightness of hand, struck hundreds of Gandharvas with Kshurapras and arrows and Bhallas and various weapons made of bones and steel.
Mbh.3.239.12043 And those mighty warriors, desirous of slaying the Suta's son, surrounded him on all sides, with swords and battle-axes and spears.
Mbh.3.251.12408 Even in the presence of thee, O son of Gandhari, together with thy army, did the Suta's son, struck with panic, fly from the battle of the Gandharvas, O king.
Mbh.3.252.12449 Then going to the south, Karna vanquished the mighty charioteers of that quarter and in Dakshinatya, the Suta's son entered into conflict with Rukmi.
Mbh.3.252.12450 After having fought dreadfully, Rukmi spake to the Suta's son saying, O foremost of monarchs, I have been pleased with thy might and prowess.
Mbh.3.252.12459 And, having conquered the mighty charioteers, headed by the Nagnajitas, the Suta's son brought the Sasakas and the Yavanas under his sway.
Mbh.3.252.12474 O lord of earth, and brought the monarchs under subjection, and having gained imperishable wealth, the Suta's son appeared before the king.
Mbh.3.253.12478 SECTION CCLIII Vaisampayana continued, O king, O lord of men, that slayer of hostile heroes, the Suta's son, said these words to Duryodhana, O Kaurava Duryodhana, do thou lay unto thy heart the words that I shall tell thee; and, O represser of foes, after having heard my words, it behoveth thee to act accordingly every way.
Mbh.3.253.12484 Do thou, O Suta's son, fulfil this desire of mine'
Mbh.3.255.12544 And the Suta's son, rising up, said, By good luck it is, O foremost of the Bharata race, that this mighty sacrifice of thine hath been brought to a close.
Mbh.3.255.12557 Intelligence, further, O foremost of kings, had been brought by spies regarding the vow of the Suta's son to slay Vijaya.
Mbh.3.255.12562 And with the assistance of the Suta's son crowned with martial glory, Duryodhana remained ever intent on the welfare of the rulers of the earth, and he worshipped the foremost of Brahmanas by celebrating sacrifices with profuse gifts.
Mbh.3.257.12594 And remembering the harsh words of the Suta's son, the Pandava, repressing the venom of his wrath, passed his time in humble guise, sighing heavily.
Mbh.3.310.15151 And Arjuna said, Surely, this calamity hath befallen us because I resented not those biting words piercing the very bones, uttered by the Suta's son'
Mbh.4.14.573 Hearing these words of his, Draupadi replied, In desiring me, a female servant of low extraction, employed in the despicable office of dressing hair, O Suta's son, thou desirest one that deserves not that honour.
Mbh.4.15.604 And having taken counsel with her own self and reflected on Kichaka's purpose and on the anxiety of Krishna, Sudeshna addressed the Suta's son in these words, Do thou, on the occasion of some festival, procure viands and wines for me.
Mbh.4.16.638 And saying this, the Suta's son caught hold of Draupadi's right arm.
Mbh.4.16.664 Oh, why do those heroes today, endued as they are with strength and possessed of immeasurable energy, quietly suffer, like eunuchs, their dear and chaste wife to be thus insulted by a Suta's son?
Mbh.4.17.700 SECTION XVII Vaisampayana said, Thus insulted by the Suta's son, that illustrious princess, the beautiful Krishna, eagerly wishing for the destruction of Virata's general, went to her quarters.
Mbh.4.21.892 On beholding me the Suta's son at first addressed me in sweet words, and when that failed, he became exceedingly enraged, and intended to use violence.
Mbh.4.22.974 And as an insect approacheth towards a flaming fire, or a puny animal towards a lion, Kichaka approached Bhima, lying down in a bed and burning in anger at the thought of the insult offered to Krishna, as if he were the Suta's Death.
Mbh.4.23.1036 Thus addressed by them, king Virata, O monarch, knowing fully well the prowess of the Suta gave his assent to Sairindhri being burnt along with the Suta's son.
Mbh.4.54.2057 Like an elephant desiring an encounter with another, the Suta's son of wicked soul eagerly desireth a battle with me.
Mbh.4.54.2089 And like a lion attacked by an elephant, Arjuna, taking some keen crescent-shaped arrows from out of his quiver and drawing his bow to his ear, pierced the Suta's son on every part of his body.
Mbh.4.69.2697 It was he that repulsed with arrows Kripa and Drona and Drona's son of powerful energy, and the Suta's son and Bhishma.
Mbh.5.2.48 Let him respectfully salute Bhishma the heroic scion of Kuru's race, and the magnanimous son of Vichitravirya, and Drona along with his son, and Vidura and Kripa, and the king of Gandhara, along with the Suta's son.
Mbh.5.8.278 O king, thou must likewise so act that the Suta's son Karna may be dispirited and the victory may be ours.
Mbh.5.8.288 Whatever troubles were suffered by thee together with Draupadi on the occasion of the game at dice, the rude inhuman words uttered by the Suta's son, the misery inflicted by the Asura Jata and by Kichaka, O illustrious one, all the miseries experienced by Draupadi, like those formerly experienced by Damayanti, will all, O hero, end in joy.
Mbh.5.26.1096 They are Dussasana, and Sakuni the son of Suvala, and Karna the Suta's son!
Mbh.5.32.1435 Vaisampayana continued, Then, with the king's permission, having entered that spacious apartment, the Suta's son, with joined hands, approached the royal son of Vichitravirya who was protected by many wise, valiant, and righteous persons, and who was then seated on his throne.
Mbh.5.47.2661 And after all those kings, O Bharata, had taken their seats, the orderly-in-waiting announced the arrival of the Suta's son, saying, Yonder cometh the car that was despatched to the Pandavas.
Mbh.5.48.2670 Fearless in battle and conscious of the might of his arms, the heroic Kiritin, eager for fight, spoke thus unto me in the presence of Vasudeva, Do thou, O suta, say unto Dhritarashtra's son, in the presence of all the Kurus, and also in the hearing of that Suta's son, of foul tongue and wicked soul, of little sense, stupid reason, and of numbered days, who always desires to fight against me, and also in the hearing of those kings assembled for fighting against the Pandavas, and do thou see that all the words now uttered by me are heard well by that king with his counsellors'
Mbh.5.49.2821 Thou art alone in holding as true the opinion, O bull of the Bharata race, only three persons, viz, Karna, a low-born Suta's son cursed by Rama, Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and thy mean and sinful brother Dussasana'
Mbh.5.62.3342 Bhishma, however, O king, addressing Duryodhana in the midst of the Kurus, and laughing aloud, said, How truly doth the Suta's son keep his promise.
Mbh.5.129.5749 Thou that covetest the wealth of the Pandavas are not a match for them, nor this Suta's son, who is exceedingly wrathful, nor this thy brother Dussasana.
Mbh.5.140.6255 What conciliatory words did Govinda speak unto the Suta's son?
Mbh.5.145.6506 Let not the epithet Suta's son attach to thee.
Mbh.5.157.6965 The Suta's son always boasts of his prowess in battle, comparing it with mine'
Mbh.5.162.7286 Without having vanquished in battle the Suta's son Karna who is invincible, and Salya, that foremost of mighty persons, and that first of all warriors and equal unto Sachi's lord himself in combat, why, O son of Pritha, dost thou wish for sovereignty?
Mbh.5.163.7345 Hear now the words which I say and which thou art to repeat unto the inaccessible Suyodhana in the midst of all the Kshatriyas and in the hearing of the Suta's son and the wicked-hearted Sakuni.
Mbh.5.164.7429 After Bhishma and Drona will have been quieted and after the Suta's son will have been overthrown, thou shalt be hopeless of life, kingdom and sons!
Mbh.5.165.7483 And he pitted Arjuna against the Suta's son Karna, Bhima against Duryodhana, Dhrishtaketu against Salya, Uttamaujas against Gautama's son Kripa, Nakula against Kritavarman, Yuyudhana against the ruler of the Sindhus Jayadratha.
Mbh.5.169.7668 It is for this, Suta's son, that thou livest!
Mbh.5.196.8791 Hearing the words of the Suta's son the son of the ocean-going Ganga laughed aloud and said, As long, O son of Radha, as thou encounterest not in battle Partha with his arrows, conch, and bows and rushing to the combat on his car with Vasudeva in his company, so long mayest thou think so!
Mbh.5.197.8811 How, therefore, can the Suta's son know it.
Mbh.6.8.482 Endued with great energy, he then, having reflected, said these words: Without doubt, O Suta's son, it is Time that destroyeth the universe.
Mbh.6.11.575 Why, O Suta's son, would the people there be of dark complexion'
Mbh.6.35.1665 And all these sons of Dhritarashtra, together with the hosts of kings, and Bhishma, and Drona, and also this Suta's son Karna, accompanied by even the principal warriors of our side, are quickly entering thy terrible mouths rendered fierce by thy tusks.
Mbh.6.43.2130 The energy of the Suta's son Karna should be weakened by thee in battle'
Mbh.6.98.5197 SECTION XCVIII Sanjaya said, Then king Duryodhana, and Sakuni the son of Suvala, and thy son Dussasana, and the invincible Suta's son Karna meeting together, consulted in the following way.
Mbh.6.98.5200 Then king Duryodhana, addressing the Suta's son and the mighty Sakuni, said unto all those counsellors of his, Drona, Bhishma, and Kripa, and Salya and Somadatta's son do not resist the Parthas.
Mbh.6.98.5206 Unto the king who said so, O great monarch, the Suta's son answered, Do not grieve, O chief of the Bharata.
Mbh.7.7.220 And the Madras, the Trigartas the Amvashthas, the Westerners, the Northerners, the Malavas, the Surasenas, the Sudras the Maladas, the Sauviras, the Kaitavas, the Easterners, and the Southerners placing thy son Duryodhana and the Suta's son Karna at their head, forming the rear guard, gladdened warriors of their own army, added to the strength of the advancing force, Vikartana's son Karna proceeded at the head of the bowmen
Mbh.7.10.351 SECTION X Vaisampayana said, Having addressed the Suta's son in this way, Dhritarashtra, afflicted with excessive grief of heart and hopeless of his son's victory, fell down on the ground.
Mbh.7.14.605 Even this was regarded as an act of great valour on the part of the Suta's son, in that, he singly resisted that whole force by means of his straight shafts.
Mbh.7.30.1621 In the very sight of the Dhritarashtras, therefore, as also of the Suta's son, the three uterine brothers of the latter were despatched by Arjuna unaided by any one.
Mbh.7.30.1626 Sini's grandson also, of splendour equal to that of Indra himself, taking up another bow pierced Suta's son with four and sixty shafts and roared like a lion.
Mbh.7.92.4266 And the ruler of the Sindhus had for the protectors of his wheels two of the foremost warriors, viz, the son of Drona on his right, O king, and the Suta's son Karna on the left.
Mbh.7.110.5301 Indeed, O charioteer, bear me thither, making the steeds adopt a tolerable speed, thither, that is, where are seen the Valhikas with diverse weapons uplifted in their arms, and the countless Southerners headed by the Suta's son and whose division is seen to present a serried array of elephants and steeds and cars and in which stand foot-soldiers from various realm'
Mbh.7.126.6304 The Suta's son then, that mighty car-warrior of terrible deeds, taking up another bow and stringing it quickly, pierced Bhima in that battle with many shafts.
Mbh.7.126.6305 Then Bhima, excited with rage, struck the Suta's son with great force on the chest with three straight shafts.
Mbh.7.128.6383 How also could Bhima proceed against the Suta's son, that mighty warrior who is reckoned as the greatest of car-warriors on earth?
Mbh.7.128.6386 How, then, could Bhima encounter that Suta's son in battle?
Mbh.7.128.6388 How, indeed, did those two heroes, viz, the Suta's son and Vrikodara, fight with each other in that encounter which took place in the vicinity of Arjuna's car?
Mbh.7.128.6389 Informed before of his brotherhood with the Pandavas, the Suta's son is again, compassionate.
Mbh.7.128.6391 As regards Bhima also, remembering all the wrongs formerly inflicted on him by the Suta's son, how did that hero fight with Karna in battle?
Mbh.7.128.6394 That Suta's son, relying upon whom my sons chose hostilities with those mighty car-warriors viz, the sons of Pandu, how did Bhima fight with him?
Mbh.7.128.6407 Bhimasena, hearing that challenge of Karna, brooked it not, but wheeling his car a little, began to fight with the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.128.6411 The Suta's son, endued with great strength, swallowed, by means of the power of his own weapons, all those showers of arrows shot by that hero, possessed of the tread of an infuriated elephant.
Mbh.7.128.6416 And once more, Bhimasena pierced the Suta's son of variegated armour with three and seventy well-shot and keen arrows equipped with beautiful wings and eased in golden armour, each with five shafts.
Mbh.7.128.6421 The mighty-armed Vrikodara, however, disregarding those shafts shot from Karna's bow fearlessly struck the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.128.6438 And once more, Bhimasena, endued with the prowess of a celestial, pierced the Suta's son who was prepared to lay down his life in battle, with six and then with eight arrows.
Mbh.7.129.6454 Then that chastiser of foes, viz, Bhima recollecting all the woes suffered by him on the occasion of the match at dice, and during his exile in the woods and residence in Virata's city, and bearing in mind the robbing of their kingdom swelling with prosperity and gems, by thy sons, and the numerous other wrongs inflicted on the Pandavas by thee and the Suta's son and remembering also the fact that thou hadst conspired to burn innocent Kunti with her sons, and calling to his memory the sufferings of Krishna in the midst of the assembly at the hands of those wretches, as also the seizure of her tresses by Duhsasana, and the harsh speeches uttered, O Bharata, by Karna, to the effect, Take thou another husband, for all thy husbands are dead: the sons of Pritha have sunk into hell and are like sesamum seeds without kernel, remembering also those other words, O son of Kuru, that the Kauravas uttered in thy presence, add the fact also that thy sons had been desirous of enjoying Krishna as a slave, and those harsh words that Karna spoke to the sons of Pandu when the latter, attired in deer-skins were about to be banished to the woods, and the joy in which thy wrathful and foolish son, himself in prosperity, indulged, thinking the distressed sons of Pritha as veritable straw, the virtuous Bhima that slayer of foes, remembering these and all the woes he had suffered since his childhood, became reckless of his very life.
Mbh.7.129.6460 Vrikodara fearlessly rushed against the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.129.6477 Meanwhile, Krishna and Dhananjaya, those chastisers of foes, engaged in battle with the Suta's son, thought the burthen too great for Bhima to bear.
Mbh.7.130.6496 Bearing in mind all those woes and all the wrongs sustained by the Pandavas, the mighty-armed Bhimasena battled with the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.130.6508 Cutting off that dart, resembling a snake just freed from its slough, Bhima, O sire, as if on the lookout for taking the life-breath of the Suta's son, sped, in great wrath, many shafts in that battle that were equipped with peacock-feathers and golden wings and each of which, whetted of' stone, resembled the rod of Yama.
Mbh.7.131.6537 That shaft equipped with beautiful feathers sped from the bow of the Suta's son, piercing Partha in that battle, sank deep into the earth.
Mbh.7.131.6538 Then the mighty-armed Bhima, with eyes red in wrath, hurled without a moment's reflection, at the Suta's son, a heavy six-sided mace, adorned with gold measuring full four cubits in length, and resembling the bolt of Indra in force.
Mbh.7.131.6548 Beholding Durmukha desirous of supporting the Suta's son in that battle, the son of the Wind god was filled with delight and began to lick the corners of his mouth.
Mbh.7.131.6553 Seizing that opportunity, O king, Bhimasena shot at the Suta's son four and ten long shafts equipped with vulturine feathers.
Mbh.7.131.6554 Those blood-drinking shafts of golden wings, endued with great force illuminating the ten points as they coursed through the welkin, pierced the armour of the Suta's son, and drank his life-blood, O king, and passing through his body, sank into the earth and looked resplendent like angry snakes, O monarch, urged on by Death himself, with half their bodies inserted within their holes.
Mbh.7.131.6559 Then Bhima pierced the Suta's son in return with three shafts endued with the impetuosity of Garuda and he pierced the latter's charioteer also with seven.
Mbh.7.132.6575 It seems that Suta's son, the mighty armed Karna alone, relying on the prowess of his own arms, fought in battle with Bhimasena, disregarding the latter.
Mbh.7.132.6607 Resisted by Bhima with whetted arrows on all sides, the Suta's son, O king, only looked at Bhima.
Mbh.7.133.6614 And once more, piercing him in his vitals with five keen arrows, Bhima, O sire, cut off with a broad-headed arrow the bow of the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.133.6621 Then the son of Pandu, gifted with great prowess and exerting himself with great activity, shot a thousand arrows at the Suta's son, desirous of taking the latter's life.
Mbh.7.133.6625 Then, O monarch, Bhima, excited with rage, sped nine straight shafts at the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.133.6628 Beholding the Suta's son turn back and flying away on foot, covered all over with the arrows of Kunti's son, Duryodhana said, Go ye quickly from all sides towards the car of Radha's son'
Mbh.7.133.6637 Then the son of Pandu, excited with rage, cut off the armour of Suta's son with six and thirty broad-headed arrows of great sharpness and fierce energy.
Mbh.7.133.6638 The mighty-armed Suta's son also, O bull of Bharata's race, pierced the son of Kunti with fifty straight arrows.
Mbh.7.134.6665 Indeed, as Pritha's son himself had before been shrouded by the Suta's son, even so was the latter now shrouded by the former in that battle.
Mbh.7.134.6669 Ye mighty bowmen, strive ye to protect the Suta's son'
Mbh.7.136.6735 The mighty-armed Bhimasena, the son of Pandu, though thus struck by the Suta's son, showed no signs of pain but stood immovable like a hill pierced with arrows.
Mbh.7.136.6739 Excited with wrath, Vrikodara, then, smiling the while, deeply pierced the Suta's son in the centre of the chest with another broad-headed arrow.
Mbh.7.136.6742 With those shafts sticking to his forehead, the Suta's son looked beautiful, as he did before, while his brow had been encircled with a chaplet of blue lotuses.
Mbh.7.136.6752 Then that slayer of hostile heroes, viz, the mighty-armed Bhima, O Bharata, cutting off, with a razor-faced arrow, the bow of the Suta's son, uttered a loud shout.
Mbh.7.136.6753 Casting off that broken bow, the Suta's son, that mighty car-warrior, took up another bow that was stronger and tougher.
Mbh.7.136.6754 Beholding that slaughter of the Kuru, the Sauvira, and the Sindhu heroes, and marking that the earth was covered with coats of mail and standards and weapons lying about, and also seeing the lifeless forms of elephants, foot-soldiers and horsemen and car-warriors on all sides, the body of the Suta's son, from wrath, blazed up with effulgence.
Mbh.7.136.6756 Infuriated with rage, the Suta's son, while shooting his arrows, looked resplendent, like the autumnal sun of dazzling rays at mid-day.
Mbh.7.136.6774 Then the Suta's son, disregarding the energy of the high-souled Bhima, completely shrouded Bhima with other arrows and endeavoured to prevail over him.
Mbh.7.136.6778 Bhima, however, cut off with his own shafts every one of those arrows into three fragments, and prevailing over the Suta's son, he cried out, Wait, Wait'
Mbh.7.136.6785 Then the wrathful and mighty-armed Bhima of fierce prowess, baffling with his own weapons the weapons of his foe, pierced the Suta's son with many shafts.
Mbh.7.136.6787 Bhima, however, with as many arrows, cut off those shafts of Suta's son in the welkin and addressed him, saying, Wait, Wait'
Mbh.7.136.6792 Then excited with rage, the Suta's son, Karna, by the power of his weapons, with his straight arrows, cut off in that encounter the couple of quivers and the bow-string of fighting Bhima, as also the traces of his steeds.
Mbh.7.136.6799 Thereupon, that dart fell down, cut off into ten fragments by those sharp shafts of the Suta's son, Karna, that warrior conversant with every mode of warfare, then battling for the sake of his friends.
Mbh.7.136.6803 That large sword, cutting off the stringed bow of the Suta's son, fell down on the earth, O king, like an angry snake from the sky.
Mbh.7.136.6822 Bhima also, raising his fierce fists that were endued with the force of the thunder, desired to slay the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.136.6825 The Suta's son, however, with his sharp shafts, repeatedly caused the distressed Bhima, to lose the sense.
Mbh.7.136.6856 Then the ape-bannered Arjuna, urged by Kesava, shot at the Suta's son, O king, many shafts whetted on stone.
Mbh.7.136.6858 With those arrows shot from Gandiva which entered Karna's body like so many snakes, Dhananjaya drove the Suta's son from Bhimasena's vicinity.
Mbh.7.142.7236 The mighty-armed Partha, in the very sight of all the troops, pierced the Suta's son, in return, with ten arrows, on the field of battle.
Mbh.7.142.7241 The prowess, O sire, that we then beheld of the Suta's son was wonderful in the extreme, since, excited with wrath in battle, he singly resisted those three great car-warriors.
Mbh.7.142.7243 All his limbs bathed in blood, the Suta's son of great prowess and bravery, pierced Phalguna in return with fifty arrows.
Mbh.7.142.7248 Endued with great prowess, the Suta's son, then, O king, took up another bow, and covered the son of Pandu with several thousands of arrows.
Mbh.7.155.8292 Sanjaya continued, While Karna was uttering those words, Kripa, the mighty armed son of Saradwat, smiling the while, addressed the Suta's son in these words, Thy speech is fair, O Karna!
Mbh.7.155.8296 On every one of those occasions, O Suta's son, thou hast been vanquished by the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.155.8301 Thou indulgest in too much brag, O Suta's son!
Mbh.7.155.8304 Ever roaring aloud, O Suta's son like the dry clouds of autumn, thou showest thyself, O Karna to be without substance.
Mbh.7.155.8323 Kripa said, Little do I reckon, O Suta's son, these delirious saying of thine discovering thy thoughts, not deeds.
Mbh.7.155.8344 This, O Suta's son, is a great folly on thy part, since thou always venturest to contend with Sauri himself in battle'
Mbh.7.156.8373 SECTION CLVIII Sanjaya said, Seeding his uncle thus addressed in harsh and insulting words by the Suta's son, Aswatthaman, uplifting his scimitar, furiously rushed towards the latter.
Mbh.7.156.8393 Thou shouldst not, O sinless one, be angry with the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.156.8400 Kripa, said, O Suta's son of wicked heart, this thy fault is pardoned by us.
Mbh.7.156.8413 Beholding all those mighty Pandavas thus advancing, the Suta's son, trembled not, nor experienced any fear.
Mbh.7.156.8419 The lightness of arm that we then behold of the Suta's son was wonderful in the extreme, inasmuch as, all his foes, fighting resolutely, could not strike him in that battle.
Mbh.7.156.8427 Seeing his army vanquished in battle by that intelligent Karna, yonder cometh Vibhatsu from desire of slaying the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.156.8428 Let such steps, therefore, be taken as may prevent the son of Pandu from slaying that mighty car-warrior viz, Suta's son, in the very sight of us all'
Mbh.7.156.8429 Thus addressed, Drona's son, and Kripa, and Salya, and that great car-warrior, viz, the son of Hridika, beholding the son of Kunti coming towards them like Sakra himself towards the Daitya host, all advanced against Partha for rescuing the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.156.8441 That scorcher of foes shot at the Suta's son thirty straight shafts, whetted on stone and equipped with blazing points.
Mbh.7.156.8445 Dhananjaya then, O Bharata, smiling the while, baffled with his own shafts, that arrowy shower shot by the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.156.8449 And he also despatched the four steeds of the Suta's son to Yama's abode with a number of broad-headed shafts.
Mbh.7.164.8885 The Suta's son, however, with many thousands of arrows, cut off that wheel coursing towards him like the uplifted wheel of Death.
Mbh.7.168.9082 Hearing then the rattle of Arjuna's car as also that twang of Gandiva, the Suta's son, O king, said these words unto Duryodhana, Slaughtering our entire army and the foremost of heroic warriors and many mighty bowmen among the Kauravas, Arjuna is loudly twanging his bow.
Mbh.7.168.9107 When Suvala's son, O king, thus proceeded against the Pandavas, the Suta's son, accompanied by a large force, quickly advanced against Satyaki, shooting many hundreds of shafts.
Mbh.7.170.9191 Accompanied by all the forces and arraying then, in good order, both of us, with uplifted weapons, are even now proceeding against Drona and the Suta's son for withstanding them'
Mbh.7.171.9246 I do not, however, O sinless one, regard the time to have come, O mighty-armed one, for thee to encounter the Suta's son in battle.
Mbh.7.171.9247 The blazing dart, resembling a mighty meteor, given him by Vasava, is still with him, O thou of mighty arms, kept for thee with care, by the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.171.9262 Afflicted at dead of night by the Suta's son with his arrowy showers, the Panchalas are flying away like a herd of deer afflicted by a loin.
Mbh.7.171.9263 Except thee, O thou of terrible prowess, there is none else that can withstand the Suta's son who is thus engaged in battle.
Mbh.7.171.9280 This night I shall fight such a battle with the Suta's son as will form the subject of talk as long as the world lasts.
Mbh.7.171.9284 The Suta's son, that tiger among men, smilingly received that angry warrior of blazing mouth and blazing locks.
Mbh.7.172.9286 SECTION CLXXIV Sanjaya said, Beholding the mighty-armed Ghatotkacha, O king, proceeding towards the car of Suta's son, Karna for slaughtering him in battle, thy son Duryodhana addressing Duhsasana, said these words, The Rakshasa, seeing the prowess of Karna in battle, is speedily advancing against him.
Mbh.7.173.9395 Beholding his illusion dispelled, Ghatotkacha, filled with rage began to shoot deadly shafts from desire of slaying the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.173.9398 Then Ghatotkacha, thus pierced by the Suta's son in his vital parts and feeling great pain, took up a celestial wheel having a thousand radii.
Mbh.7.173.9403 The Suta's son, however, endued with the prowess of Rudra or of Indra's younger brother or of Indra, fearlessly shrouded Ghatotkacha's car in a moment with winged arrows.
Mbh.7.173.9412 Destroying then by his own weapon, the celestial weapon of Karna, Ghatotkacha, endued with the power of illusion, began to fight with the Suta's son, aided by his powers of illusion.
Mbh.7.173.9416 The valiant Rakshasa, assuming many fierce and grim heads, began to devour the celestial weapons of the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.173.9425 Approaching then the vicinity of Karna's car, Ghatotkacha, with his ear-rings waving, fearlessly addressed the Suta's son, O monarch, and said, Wait a little, O Suta's son.
Mbh.7.173.9437 Then he fierce Ghatotkacha, becoming a blue cloud with a rainbow, in the welkin, began to pour upon the Suta's son a shower of stones.
Mbh.7.173.9448 Having destroyed that Rakshasa host, the Suta's son looked resplendent like the god Maheswara in heaven after having consumed the triple city of the Asuras.
Mbh.7.173.9452 Excited with wrath, he addressed his driver, saying, Bear me towards the Suta's son'
Mbh.7.173.9453 Then that foremost of car-warriors proceeded on that terrible-looking car of his, for once more fighting a single combat with the Suta's son, O king!
Mbh.7.173.9454 The Rakshasa, excited with rage, hurled at the Suta's son an Asani of Rudra's workmanship, terrible and furnished with eight wheels.
Mbh.7.173.9460 The Suta's sort, that scorcher of foes, then began to shoot his shafts.
Mbh.7.173.9470 These approached the Suta's son, uttering fierce howls for frightening him.
Mbh.7.176.9564 Then those warriors also, viz, Nakula and Sahadeva and the mighty car-warrior, Satyaki, having slain the Rakshasas, proceeded to that place where the Suta's son was.
Mbh.7.177.9602 With a number of other powerful shafts, the Suta's son then caused Yudhamanyu and Uttamaujas, and the great car-warrior Satyaki to tremble.
Mbh.7.177.9611 Exceedingly afflicted by the Suta's son in that battle, many of them entered the force of Yudhishthira.
Mbh.7.177.9626 So great was the lightness of hand displayed by the Suta's son, that none could mark when he touched his quivers with his fingers, when he fixed his arrows on the bowstring, and when he aimed and sped them off.
Mbh.7.177.9657 The Suta's son, endued with modesty and achieving the most difficult and noble feats, did not lose his senses in that battle.
Mbh.7.177.9673 Indeed, that dart, O king, which he had kept and adored for years for achieving the slaughter of Pandu's son in battle, that foremost of darts which Sakra himself had given to the Suta's son in exchange for the latter's ear-rings, that blazing and terrible missile twined with strings and which seemed to thirst for blood, that fierce weapon which looked like the very tongue of the Destroyer or the sister of Death himself, that terrible and effulgent dart, Naikartana, was now hurled at the Rakshasa.
Mbh.7.177.9674 Beholding that excellent and blazing weapon capable of piercing the body of every foe, in the hands of the Suta's son, the Rakshasa began to fly away in fear assuming a body gigantic as the foot of the Vindhya mountains.
Mbh.7.179.9735 Indeed, the Suta's son, and Jarasandha, and the ruler of the Chedis, and the son of the Nishada adopting the son of Suyodhana, would have succeeded in conquering the whole earth.
Mbh.7.180.9779 SECTION CLXXXII Dhritarashtra said, When the Suta's son had such a dart as was sure to slay one person, why did he not hurt it at Partha, to the exclusion of all others?
Mbh.7.180.9783 The Suta's son should have, therefore, summoned Phalguna to battle.
Mbh.7.180.9814 Therefore, O Suta's son, avoiding the leaves and branches and trunk, slay that Krishna who is everywhere and always the root of the Pandavas.
Mbh.7.180.9820 He never placed Arjuna before the Suta's son in battle.
Mbh.7.180.9826 Why, however, did not the Suta's son actually hurt it then at him'
Mbh.7.181.9887 How, O Janardana, when we are alive and thyself too, could Hidimva's son be slain while engaged with the Suta's son?
Mbh.7.181.9902 Indeed, when it was Drona that should have been slain or the Suta's son with his followers, the mighty-armed Dhananjaya slew the Sindhu king whose connection with the affair was very remote.
Mbh.7.181.9903 The punishment of the Suta's son should certainly by undertaken by me.
Mbh.7.181.9904 I shall, therefore, O hero, now fight for slaying the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.181.9909 At this time Vasudeva of mighty arms, addressing Dhananjaya said, Filled with wrath, yonder proceedeth Yudhishthira with great speed from desire of slaying the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.181.9913 At that time, seeing Dharma's son, Yudhishthira, whose mind was afflicted by grief and who seemed to be scorched as if by fire, rush with speed from desire of slaying the Suta's son, Vyasa approached him and said these words
Mbh.7.181.9917 The weapons of the Suta's son would have been destroyed by Arjuna.
Mbh.7.181.9921 O giver of honours, by good luck the Rakshasa hath been slain in battle by the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.182.9933 In consequence, however of the slaughter of Ghatotkacha by the Suta's son that night, the king became filled with grief and anger.
Mbh.7.187.10322 Bhimasena also filled with wrath, continued to fight with the Suta's son.
Mbh.7.190.10574 Addressing the son of Prishata, that scorcher of foes, viz, Bhima said, I will again embrace thee, O son of Prishata, as one crowned with victory, when that wretch of a Suta's son shall be slain in battle, as also that other wretch, viz, Duryodhana'
Mbh.7.191.10586 Even the Suta's son fled away in fear, taking with him his own vast division, that was retreating with great speed with all its standards.
Mbh.8.1.8 The Suta's son Karna, and king Suyodhana and Duhshasana and Shakuni, in special, could not compose themselves to sleep.
Mbh.8.2.38 Unto the Suta's son who with joined hands was telling him so, the monarch afflicted with grief and drawing a long and hot breath, said these words.
Mbh.8.9.272 I do not see that anyone of my army will escape with life when the Suta's son hath been slain in battle!
Mbh.8.9.339 Who were they that guarded the right wheel of the Suta's son while the latter was engaged in fight, and who were they that guarded his left wheel, and who were they that stood at the rear of that hero?
Mbh.8.10.394 Cherishing that hope within his heart, he said unto Karna, O Suta's son, Partha never wishes to fight, standing before thee
Mbh.8.11.417 Then the Suta's son bearing a gold-backed bow appeared on the field in his car possessed of the splendour of the radiant Sun, crowned with many banners, equipped with a white standard, with steeds of the hue of cranes, bearing the device of the elephants' rope, filled with a hundred quivers, furnished with mace and wooden fence, freighted with shataghnis and rows of bells and darts and lances and spears, and supplied with many bows.
Mbh.8.11.418 And the Suta's son appeared on the field, blowing his conch, O king; decorated with a net-work of gold, and shaking his formidable bow adorned with pure gold.
Mbh.8.11.434 Only one great bowman, viz, the Suta's son, shineth in it!
Mbh.8.11.447 Beholding thy army disposed into battle array by the Suta's son in battle Duryodhana with all his brethren regarded the Pandavas to be already slain.
Mbh.8.13.505 While the army was being thus destroyed by the Suta's son, Nakula rushed with speed against that mighty car-warrior.
Mbh.8.21.884 The Kurus and the Pandavas once more fearlessly closed with each other, that is, the Parthas headed by Bhimasena and ourselves headed by the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.24.974 Thus addressed by Nakula, the Suta's son said unto him the following words befitting a prince and a bowman in particular, Strike me, O hero.
Mbh.8.24.980 Having said these words the Suta's son quickly struck the son of Pandu and pierced him, in that encounter, with three and seventy shafts.
Mbh.8.24.981 Then Nakula, O Bharata, thus pierced by the Suta's son, pierced the latter in return with eighty shafts resembling snakes of virulent poison.
Mbh.8.24.1003 The shafts shot by Nakula, dressed with Kanka and peacock feathers, shrouding the Suta's son, seemed to stay in the welkin.
Mbh.8.24.1004 Similarly, the shafts sped by the Suta's son in that dreadful battle, shrouding the son of Pandu, seemed to stay in the welkin.
Mbh.8.24.1007 Completely covered, O monarch, by the Suta's son, the son of Pandu felt no pain like the Maker of day when covered by the clouds.
Mbh.8.24.1015 Even that terrible bludgeon, so uplifted by the son of Pandu, the Suta's son, O king, cut off with many keen arrows capable of bearing a great strain.
Mbh.8.24.1030 The son of Pandu, thus let off, O king, by that bowman, Suta's son, proceeded towards Yudhishthira's car in great shame.
Mbh.8.24.1031 Scorched by the Suta's son, he then ascended his brother's car, and burning with grief he continued to sigh like a snake kept within a jar.
Mbh.8.24.1034 The Suta's son, O monarch, made a great massacre there at that hour when the Sun had reached the meridian, that puissant warrior careering all the while with the activity of a wheel.
Mbh.8.24.1044 Many car-warriors also were seen there, by us, O monarch, wandering all around, deprived of their cars and scorched with the shafts of the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.24.1049 The Srinjayas, slaughtered in that battle by the Suta's son, blindly proceeded against the latter's self like insects rushing upon a blazing fire.
Mbh.8.24.1054 Indeed, the Suta's son, possessed of great might, continued to scorch them with his shafts, like the dispeller of darkness scorching all creatures when he attains to the meridian
Mbh.8.31.1353 And the hearts of all the troops also turned to that hero, that Suta's son, that mighty bowman, as one's heart turns to a friend in a situation of great danger'
Mbh.8.31.1357 How also did all the Pandavas fight with the Suta's son?
Mbh.8.32.1520 Being all this, O slayer of hostile troops, I cannot go to the extent of acting as the driver of the Suta's son in battle.
Mbh.8.35.1854 If the Suta's son, by some means, succeeds in slaying the son of Kunti, Keshava, beholding Partha slain, will fight himself.
Mbh.8.35.1897 Let thy anxiety be dispelled, O Suta's son
Mbh.8.36.1925 Shalya said, O Suta's son, why dost thou think so low of the sons of Pandu, all of whom are endued with great might, all of whom are great bowmen, and all of whom are acquainted with every weapon?
Mbh.8.37.1943 Beholding the Suta's son setting out, all the rulers of men in the Kaurava army cried victory to him.
Mbh.8.37.1986 If thou dost not fly away from fear of thy enemy, know O Suta's son, that as soon as thou goest to battle thou wilt be slain
Mbh.8.38.2014 Hearing these words of Suta's son that were suitable to his disposition, Duryodhana, O king, with all his followers became filled with joy.
Mbh.8.39.2018 SECTION Shalya said, Do not, O Suta's son, give away to any man a golden car with six bulls of elephantine proportions.
Mbh.8.39.2024 Therefore, O Suta's son, do thou perform those sacrifices.
Mbh.8.39.2040 When Partha, called also Savyasaci, taking up his celestial bow, will scorch the Kuru army and afflict thee exceedingly with keen shafts, then, O Suta's son, wilt thou repent of thy folly.
Mbh.8.39.2043 This thy challenge of Arjuna, O Suta's son, is like that of a foolish young little deer of activity challenging a huge lion excited with wrath.
Mbh.8.39.2044 Do not, O Suta's son, challenge that prince of mighty energy like a fox gratified with meat in the forest challenging the maned monarch of the forest.
Mbh.8.41.2198 Nothing can exceed it in depth, O Suta's son.
Mbh.8.46.2518 On their left, the Kambojas, the Sakas, and the Yavanas, with cars and horse and foot, at the command of the Suta's son, stood, challenging Arjuna and the mighty Keshava.
Mbh.8.48.2689 These and other foremost of men, O monarch, all inspired with desire of victory, began to grind that great bowman, viz, the Suta's son, in that dreadful battle.
Mbh.8.48.2690 That chastiser of foes, viz, the Suta's son of great heroism, performing quick evolutions with his car, pierced every one of those warriors with ten arrows.
Mbh.8.48.2705 And the Kurus and the Pandavas once more fearlessly encountered each other, the former headed by the Suta's son and the latter by Yudhishthira
Mbh.8.49.2708 Indeed, the Suta's son cut off the heads, the arms and the thighs of his enemies, who, deprived of life, fell down on the Earth.
Mbh.8.49.2722 That chastiser of foes, and great bowman, viz, the Suta's son, O Bharata, pierced Yudhishthira, with the greatest care, in return, with ten arrows equipped with heads like the calf's tooth.
Mbh.8.49.2723 Thus pierced by the Suta's son in contempt, O sire, the mighty-armed Yudhishthira, blazed up with wrath like a fire upon receiving butter.
Mbh.8.49.2725 Drawing the bow to its fullest stretch, the king quickly sped that arrow, fatal as the rod of the Destroyer, from desire of slaying the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.49.2731 Drawing his formidable bow called Vijaya that was decked with gold, the Suta's son of immeasurable soul began to resist the son of Pandu with his sharp shafts.
Mbh.8.50.2826 Beholding Bhima, that delighter in battle, advancing quickly, the puissant king of the Madras addressed the Suta's son in the following words: Shalya said, Behold, O Karna, the mighty-armed son of Pandu, who is filled with rage.
Mbh.8.50.2854 Thus pierced by the Suta's son, Bhima covered the former with winged arrows.
Mbh.8.50.2858 Then Vrikodara, taking up another bow, O king, and knowing full well what the vital parts of the body are, pierced the Suta's son with many keen arrows.
Mbh.8.50.2860 His limbs mangled with those shafts, his eyes red with rage and the desire of revenge, the son of Pandu, insensate with wrath, and impelled by the desire of slaying the Suta's son, fixed on his bow an excellent shaft of great impetuosity, capable of bearing a great strain, and competent to pierce the very mountains.
Mbh.8.50.2863 Struck by Bhimasena, O perpetuator of Kuru's race, the Suta's son, that commander of thy forces, sat down senseless on the terrace of his car.
Mbh.8.50.2864 The ruler of the Madras then, beholding the Suta's son deprived of his senses, bore that ornament of battle away on his car, from that fight.
Mbh.8.51.2885 Beholding those sons of thine slain, the Suta's son with a cheerless heart once more urged his steeds of the hue of swans to that place where the son of Pandu was.
Mbh.8.54.3049 SECTION Sanjaya said, Then Kritavarma, and Kripa, and the son of Drona and the Suta's son, O sire, and Uluka, and Subala's son Shakuni, and the king himself, with his uterine brothers, beholding the Kuru army afflicted with the fear of Pandu's son, unable to stand together, like a vessel wrecked on the ocean, endeavoured to rescue it with great speed.
Mbh.8.56.3145 The Suta's son also in that battle, began to slay the mighty bowmen amongst the Pancalas, the Kaikayas, and the Srinjayas, in thousands.
Mbh.8.56.3189 The Suta's son possessed of great prowess, O king, then slew many thousands of other warriors skilled in fight.
Mbh.8.56.3195 Amongst elephants, amongst steeds, amongst cars and amongst men, the Suta's son caused a very great carnage, O tiger among men.
Mbh.8.56.3202 Indeed, the Suta's son in that battle repeatedly routed the Pancalas.
Mbh.8.56.3221 The Suta's son, filled with rage, routed the Pandava division, while Bhimasena in rage routed the Kurus.
Mbh.8.56.3230 Avoiding other warriors in battle, proceed against the Suta's son, that mighty car-warrior.
Mbh.8.59.3376 SECTION Sanjaya said, Then the Kurus and the Srinjayas once more fearlessly encountered each other in battle, the Parthas being headed by Yudhishthira, and ourselves headed by the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.60.3476 Behold, O Partha, that foremost of standards, of the Suta's son, on his car, bearing the device of the elephant's rope, is seen to move all over the field.
Mbh.8.60.3503 Show thyself, of thy own will, unto that great bowman, viz, the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.61.3549 Sanjaya said, Beholding the mighty-armed Bhima, the Suta's son of great valour, with eyes red in wrath, O king, rushed towards him.
Mbh.8.61.3566 Deeply pierced by the Suta's son in that encounter, the mighty bowman Shikhandi pierced Karna, in return, with ninety keen shafts.
Mbh.8.61.3587 Beholding the troops of Dhritarashtra's son flying away, the Suta's son, following them, O king, began to forcibly stop them.
Mbh.8.62.3645 Thus slaughtered by the high-souled Karna, Yudhishthira's troops, O king, afflicted with the arrows of the Suta's son, soon fled away.
Mbh.8.62.3647 Indeed, those sped subsequently from the bow of the Suta's son touched with their heads the wings of those sped before.
Mbh.8.63.3669 Having approached the king, the Suta's son, from desire of doing good to Duryodhana, pierced the son of Pandu with three formidable arrows.
Mbh.8.63.3675 Then, smiling the while, the Suta's son, that great bowman, with another broadheaded shaft, felled the head-gear of Kunti's son.
Mbh.8.64.3747 The Suta's son loudly cried out, saying Stay, Stay
Mbh.8.64.3757 Having said these words, the Suta's son of great valour, that hero, taking up his ancient and foremost of bows called Vijaya, stringed it and rubbed the string repeatedly.
Mbh.8.64.3768 Beholding them thus slaughtered, O sire, by the Suta's son, all creatures, even beasts and birds, were filled with fear.
Mbh.8.64.3769 The Srinjayas then, thus slaughtered in battle by the Suta's son, repeatedly called upon Arjuna and Vasudeva like the spirits of the dead within Yama's dominions calling upon Yama to rescue them.
Mbh.8.64.3772 Behold the Suta's son also, O Krishna, filled with rage in this great battle and resembling the Destroyer himself, in prowess and employed in achieving such a fierce feat!
Mbh.8.66.3847 That which I had never before met with at the hands of Bhishma or Kripa or Drona in battle, that I met with today at the hands of the Suta's son, that mighty car-warrior!
Mbh.8.66.3862 That Suta's son who in battle searched all the points of the compass for finding thee, that Karna who had promised to give a car with six bulls of elephantine proportions unto him that would point thee out, I ask: doth that Karna of wicked soul lie today on the bare ground, slain with thy keen arrows equipped with kanka feathers?
Mbh.8.66.3863 Having slain the Suta's son in battle, thou hast accomplished a deed highly agreeable to me!
Mbh.8.66.3864 Encountering him in battle, hast thou really slain that Suta's son, who, filled with arrogance and pride and bragging of his heroism, used to search everywhere on the field of battle for thee?
Mbh.8.66.3870 O son of Indra, hath that Karna of little understanding been slain by thee today, that Suta's son who made the vow that he would not wash his feet as long as Partha lived?
Mbh.8.66.3881 That Suta's son of wicked soul, that Karna of great wrath, who had formerly, in the presence of the Kauravas and in the midst of the assembly called us sesame seeds without kernel, encountering that Karna in battle, hast thou slain him today?
Mbh.8.66.3882 That Suta's son of wicked soul who had, laughing the while, commanded Duhshasana to forcibly drag Yajnasena's daughter won in gambling by Subala's son, hath he been slain today by thee?
Mbh.8.66.3886 Tell me, therefore, how the Suta's son hath been slain!
Mbh.8.67.3902 Beholding his troops, those foremost of warriors all covered with blood and overwhelmed by me, he then entered the car-division of the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.67.3908 Indeed, O king, the Suta's son did not become cheerless till he had a sight of us.
Mbh.8.67.3916 O thou of great glory, encountering that heroic and invincible car-warrior, viz, the Suta's son, staying in the hostile army, like Sakra encountering Vritra, O foremost of kings, I will, O Bharata, fight with the Suta's son if he can be found in this battle today.
Mbh.8.67.3917 Come and behold me and the Suta's son contending with each other in battle for victory.
Mbh.8.67.3923 I will, O lion among kings, slay the Suta's son and his troops and all our foes
Mbh.8.68.3927 Thou hast acted improperly by deserting Bhima, because thou wert unable to slay the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.69.4071 After that, O hero, he was repeatedly struck by the Suta's son with his shafts, while he was retreating from battle.
Mbh.8.69.4098 Freed from falsehood as also from fratricide, thou wilt then, O Partha, cheerfully slay the Suta's son Karna
Mbh.8.70.4167 Riding upon my terrible and victorious car, Krishna and myself will soon proceed for slaying the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.70.4180 I shall, with my whole soul, proceed for rescuing Bhima from the battle and for slaying the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.70.4212 Know the Suta's son as slain today.
Mbh.8.71.4231 Gratifying the king with devotion, and after Yudhishthira will have been made happy, we two will proceed against the car of the Suta's son for fighting him.
Mbh.8.72.4273 SECTION Sanjaya said, Having with a cheerful heart gratified king Yudhishthira the just, Partha, prepared to slay the Suta's son, addressed Govinda, saying, Let my car be once more equipped and let my foremost of steeds be yoked thereto.
Mbh.8.72.4278 Proceed quickly, O Govinda, for the slaughter of the Suta's son
Mbh.8.72.4332 Slay, therefore, the Suta's son today.
Mbh.8.72.4337 Despatch today unto Yama's presence that Suta's son, that foremost of car-warriors, whose death is near.
Mbh.8.72.4338 Indeed, slaying that Suta's son, that first of car-warriors, show the love for Yudhishthira the just.
Mbh.8.72.4340 The Suta's son of wicked soul, from exceeding pride, always disregards the sons of Pandu.
Mbh.8.73.4392 If, on that day, thou hadst not checked in battle all the Dhartarashtra car-warriors headed by the Suta's son, Drona then would never have been slain.
Mbh.8.74.4491 Today the royal son of Kunti, upon the slaughter of the Suta's son by me, shall be gratified and be of cheerful heart and obtain happiness for ever.
Mbh.8.74.4495 Today the earth will drink the blood of that Suta's son who in battle condemns all other men on earth!
Mbh.8.74.4496 With Dhritarashtra's approbation, the Suta's son Karna, boasting of his own merits, had said, Thou hast no husband now, O Krishna'
Mbh.8.74.4501 They that were on that occasion sesame seeds without kernel, will today become seeds with kernel after the fall of the Suta's son Karna of wicked soul, otherwise called Vaikartana!
Mbh.8.74.4526 Today let all behold the wrathful Dhananjaya fight with the Kauravas in battle and slay the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.77.4653 Having routed with his arrows that army struck with fright, Pritha's son Arjuna then proceeded, O sire, against the division of the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.78.4725 Sanjaya said, In that afternoon, O monarch, the Suta's son of great valour began to smite all the Somakas in the very sight of Bhimasena.
Mbh.8.78.4748 The Suta's son, however, that mighty car-warrior, began to smite them with his keen shafts.
Mbh.8.78.4750 O Bharata, viz, that the Suta's son of great prowess, alone and unsupported in that battle, fought with all those bowmen who contended with him to the utmost of their prowess, and checked all those Pandava warriors, O monarch, with his shafts.
Mbh.8.78.4773 Making the terraces of cars and the backs of steeds empty, O Bharata, and slaying the combatants that fought from the necks of elephants, and routing the foot-soldiers, that scorcher of foes, the Suta's son of great bravery, became incapable of being gazed at like the mid-day sun and looked resplendent like the Destroyer himself at the end of the Yuga.
Mbh.8.79.4792 Having caused that river to flow, Vibhatsu, that slayer of hostile heroes and bull among men, addressing Vasudeva said, Yonder, O Krishna, the standard of the Suta's son is visible.
Mbh.8.79.4796 There Kripa, and Kritavarma, and Drona's son, that mighty car-warrior, are protecting king Duryodhana, themselves protected by the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.79.4823 Save thee, O Suta's son, there is no other man, O hero, that can, in battle, dispel the fears of those retreating combatants.
Mbh.8.80.4906 SECTION Sanjaya said, Then, O king, Dhananjaya, desirous of rescuing Kunti's son Bhima who, assailed by many, foremost of warriors of the Kuru army, seemed to sink under that attack, avoided, O Bharata, the troops of the Suta's son and began, with his shafts, to despatch those hostile heroes that were opposed to Bhima to the regions of death.
Mbh.8.81.4983 Deserting Karna in that battle as they were being thus struck with Arjuna's shafts, they fled away in fear on all sides, loudly calling upon the Suta's son to rescue them.
Mbh.8.81.4996 Loud sounds of wailing were uttered by the Pancalas, O thou of great intelligence, while they were being thus smitten by the Suta's son, that rescuer of friends, for the sake of his friends
Mbh.8.82.4997 SECTION Sanjaya said, After the Kurus, O king, had been put to flight by the mighty car-warrior Arjuna of white steeds, the Suta's son Karna began to destroy the sons of the Pancalas with his mighty shafts, like the tempest destroying congregated masses of clouds.
Mbh.8.82.5001 Having slain next the steeds of Satyaki, the Suta's son then slew Visoka, the son of the ruler of the Kaikayas.
Mbh.8.82.5020 During that interval, the Suta's son fought fiercely, grinding the Somakas.
Mbh.8.82.5026 The Suta's son then pierced Shikhandi with a dozen keen shafts, and Uttamauja with half a dozen, and Yudhamanyu with three, and then each of the other two, viz, Somaka Janamejaya and Prishata's son Dhrishtadyumna with three shafts.
Mbh.8.82.5027 Vanquished in dreadful battle by the Suta's son, O sire, those five mighty car-warriors then stood inactive, gladdening their foes, even as the objects of the senses are vanquished by a person of purified soul.
Mbh.8.84.5104 Upon the fall of those ten heroes, thy army fled away in the very sight of the Suta's son, overwhelmed with the fear of the Pandavas.
Mbh.8.85.5191 The diadem-decked Arjuna then, that slayer of hostile heroes, seeing Madri's son Nakula, that foremost of men, deprived of his steeds in the midst of all, and beholding Janardana mangled with arrows, rushed in that battle against Vrishasena who was then staying in front of the Suta's son Karna.
Mbh.8.85.5210 Beholding his son, thus struck with arrows, fall down from his vehicle, the Suta's son Karna, endued with great activity and scorched with grief on account of the death of his son, quickly proceeded on his car, inspired with wrath, against the car of the diadem-decked Partha.
Mbh.8.86.5224 It behoveth thee, O son of Kunti, to slay the Suta's son with every care.
Mbh.8.87.5372 Then the Suta's son, smilingly addressing Shalya, said, If Partha by any means slays me in battle today, tell me truly, O friend, what thou wilt do after that
Mbh.8.88.5409 Dhananjaya, however, with his shafts, cut off at the same time the bows, the quivers, the steeds, the elephants, and the cars with their drivers, of those warriors, and mangling every one of them with excellent shafts, pierced the Suta's son with a dozen arrows.
Mbh.8.88.5416 Only thy son and the Suta's son who were both of the same opinion, felt neither pain nor wonder.
Mbh.8.89.5501 Filled with wrath and possessed of great activity, the Suta's son, that foremost of men, laughing at the two Krishnas, pierced the foremost of Pancala warriors with well shot arrows in that battle.
Mbh.8.89.5502 Then the Pancalas and the Somakas, O king, thus afflicted by Karna with showers of shafts in that encounter, became filled with wrath and uniting together pierced the Suta's son with keen arrows from every side.
Mbh.8.89.5503 Quickly cutting off those arrows with his own, the Suta's son, vigorously agitating them in that battle, afflicted with many shafts the cars, the elephants, and the steeds of the Pancalas.
Mbh.8.89.5509 Indeed, the wrathful Bhima, his anger being provoked, drew deep breaths and addressing Arjuna of true aim, said, How, O Jishnu, could this wretch fallen off from virtue, this Suta's son, putting forth his might in battle, slay so many foremost of Pancala warriors, in thy sight?
Mbh.8.89.5512 How, then, O diadem-decked Arjuna, could the Suta's son pierce thee first with ten long shafts such as are used by car-warriors?
Mbh.8.89.5513 That the Suta's son should today have succeeded in baffling the arrows shot by thee seems to me to be very amazing.
Mbh.8.89.5518 That patience with which thou didst vanquish all creatures and feed Agni at Khandava, with that patience, slay thou the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.89.5526 That patience with which thou didst gratified the illustrious deity Mahadeva in the guise of a hunter, summoning that patience once again, O hero, slay the Suta's son with all his followers.
Mbh.8.89.5529 Thus addressed by Krishna, the high-souled Partha of exceeding might set his heart upon the slaughter of the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.89.5530 Indeed, urged by Bhima and Janardana, and recollecting his woes, and taking an internal survey of himself, and calling to mind the object for which he had come to this world, he addressed Keshava, saying, I will now invoke into existence a mighty and fierce weapon for the good of the world and the destruction of the Suta's son.
Mbh.8.89.5565 During the interval thus offered, the Suta's son pierced Partha with a hundred small arrows, keen and steeped in oil, winged with the feathers of birds, and resembling snakes freed from their sloughs.
Mbh.8.89.5570 Accomplished in the use of weapons, the Suta's son, stupefying those advancing warriors with his shafts and baffling all the weapons shot by them, destroyed their cars and steeds and elephants.
Mbh.8.89.5571 And the Suta's son, O king, also afflicted with his arrows many foremost of warriors among them.
Mbh.8.90.5601 Indeed, that weapon of Partha which, swelling with energy, had been consuming the Kurus, the Suta's son now crushed with his shafts winged with gold.
Mbh.8.90.5603 The Suta's son destroyed that burning weapon of Arjuna with his own foe-killing weapon of great power which he had obtained from Rama, and which resembled in efficacy an Atharvan rite.
Mbh.8.90.5612 While they were thus contending with each other in battle, sometimes the Suta's son prevailed over his rival and sometimes the diadem-decked Partha prevailed over his, in prowess and weapons and lightness of hands.
Mbh.8.90.5630 The Suta's son then fixed on his bow-string that foe-killing, exceedingly keen, snake-mouthed, blazing, and fierce shaft, which had been polished according to rule, and which he had long kept for the sake of Partha's destruction.
Mbh.8.90.5635 The Suta's son did not know that the snake Aswasena had entered his arrow by the aid of his Yoga powers.
Mbh.8.90.5638 Endued with great activity, the Suta's son, with eyes burning in wrath, then said unto the ruler of the Madras, O Shalya, Karna never aimeth an arrow twice.
Mbh.8.90.5648 When the car had thus been pressed down into the earth through the exertions of the slayer of Madhu, the excellent ornament of Arjuna's head, celebrated throughout the earth, the welkin, heaven, and the waters, the Suta's son swept off from the crown of his rival, with that arrow, in consequence of the very nature of that snaky weapon and the great care and wrath with which it had been shot.
Mbh.8.90.5671 Thus addressed in that battle by him, the Suta's son said, Who are you possessed of such fierce form
Mbh.8.90.5705 The costly and bright armour also of the Suta's son that had been forged with great care by many foremost of artists working for a long time, the son of Pandu cut off within a moment in many fragments.
Mbh.8.90.5711 Then the Suta's son, casting aside his bow that resembled the very bow of Sakra, as also his quiver, felt great pain, and stood inactive, stupefied, and reeling, his grasp loosened and himself in great anguish.
Mbh.8.90.5717 The Suta's son, when able, will once more advance against thee as before.
Mbh.8.91.5817 The Suta's son also, by the clouds he created, caused all the points of the compass to be shrouded with a darkness such as may be seen on a rainy day.
Mbh.8.91.5819 The Suta's son then, for slaying the son of Pandu, took up a terrible arrow blazing like fire.
Mbh.8.91.5824 Beholding that shaft aimed by the Suta's son, O sire, the Pandavas, with cheerless hearts, gave themselves up to great sorrow.
Mbh.8.91.5875 The death hour of the Suta's son, O sire, was the afternoon of that day.
Mbh.8.92.5882 Beholding his army deprived of the Suta's son and its cars and steeds and elephants destroyed, Duryodhana, with eyes bathed in tears, repeatedly sighed the very picture of woe.
Mbh.8.92.5888 All the Kshatriyas embraced one another in joy, upon beholding the Suta's son slain at that juncture.
Mbh.8.93.5911 After the slaughter of the Suta's son, O king, the Kauravas, terrified and mangled with shafts, masterless and desirous of protection, became like a herd of elephants afflicted by lions.
Mbh.8.93.5920 After the fall of the Suta's son, thy warriors became like people without protectors in a forest teeming with beasts of prey and robbers.
Mbh.8.94.6012 Duryodhana, however, at that time, deeply afflicted and deprived of his senses, and with eyes bathed in tears, wept for the Suta's son, saying, Karna!
Mbh.8.94.6027 All the warriors, O king, were inspired with fright at sight of the Suta's son lying dead on the field, like other animals at sight of the lion.
Mbh.8.94.6030 Clad in beautiful attire, and possessed of a neck that was very beautiful, the Suta's son owned a face which resembled the full moon in splendour.
Mbh.8.96.6114 The Suta's son Karna, possessed of great might and otherwise called Vaikartana, hath been slain.
Mbh.8.96.6117 The Earth drinketh today the blood of that Suta's son, that wretch among men, who had laughed at the dice-won Krishna.
Mbh.8.96.6145 Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Vrikodara the son of Pandu, and Satyaki, O king, that foremost of car-warriors among the Vrishnis, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Shikhandi, and others among the Pandus, the Pancalas, and the Srinjayas, worshipped the son of Kunti at the slaughter of the Suta's son.
Mbh.9.1.12 Thinking of the slaughter of the Suta's son, he could not obtain peace of mind, though comforted by those kings with excellent reasons inculcated by the scriptures.
Mbh.9.2.122 Dhritarashtra said, After Bhishma and Drona had been slain, and the Suta's son also overthrown, whom did my warriors make their generalissimo?
Mbh.9.2.126 Even thus was the Suta's son, that valiant Karna, slain by Arjuna in the sight of all the kings.
Mbh.9.3.148 After the Suta's son had been slain by the illustrious son of Pandu, and after thy troops had been repeatedly rallied and had repeatedly fled away, and after a terrible carnage had taken place, O foremost of men, of human beings in battle subsequent to Karna's death, Partha began to utter leonine roars.
Mbh.9.3.153 Indeed, O king, after the slaughter of the Suta's son, thy troops, struck with panic and mangled with arrows, were like unprotected men desirous of a protector or like a herd of deer afflicted by a lion.
Mbh.9.3.155 Their foremost of heroes slain, themselves thrown into confusion and mangled with keen arrows, thy sons, O king, upon the slaughter of the Suta's son, fled away in fear.
Mbh.9.3.162 After the fall of the Suta's son, thy troops became like stragglers from a caravan in a forest abounding with robbers and beasts of prey.
Mbh.9.4.252 Where was the Suta's son, where was Drona with all his followers, where was I, where wert thou, where was Hridika's son, where thy brother Duhshasana accompanied by his brothers when Jayadratha was slain?
Mbh.9.7.425 Surpassing Drona and Bhishma and the Suta's son, O lord, in battle, I will career on the field, O Kauravas, for doing what is agreeable to thee'
Mbh.9.8.479 The hope became strong, O king, in the breasts of thy sons that, after Drona and Bhishma and the Suta's son had been overthrown, Shalya, O sire, would slay all the Parthas in battle.
Mbh.9.19.1165 That fear, O king, and that grief, which had been ours upon the fall of Bhishma, of Drona, and of the Suta's son, O Bharata, now became ours once more, O monarch.
Mbh.12.1.31 He who was regarded by the world as a Suta's child born of Radha, was really the eldest son of Kunti and, therefore, our uterine brother.
Mbh.12.2.68 SECTION II Vaisampayana said, That foremost of speakers, the sage Narada, thus questioned, narrated everything about the manner in which he who was believed to be a Suta's son had been cursed in former days'
Mbh.14.60.2769 The Suta's son Karna, though a fierce warrior, encountering Partha, came to his end on the second day, like an insect encountering a blazing fire.
Mbh.15.37.1543 Are Gandhari and Pritha, and the Suta's son Sanjaya also, in peace?
