Mbh.1.192.9602 The hero of the Vrishni race Krishna suspecting the five persons he had seen at the Swayamvara to be none else than the heroes of the Kuru race, came accompanied by the son of Rohini Valadeva, to the house of the potter where those foremost of men had taken up their quarters.
Mbh.1.193.9617 SECTION CLXLIV Swayamvara Parva continued Vaisampayana said, When the Kuru princes Bhima and Arjuna were wending towards the abode of the potter, Dhrishtadyumna, the Panchala prince followed them.

Mbh.3.12.723 O slayer of Madhu, Arjuna won me in the Swayamvara, having performed a feat difficult of achievement by others and having fought also with the assembled kings!

Mbh.3.58.2878 Hearing this, Indra said with a smile, That Swayamvara is already ended.
Mbh.3.65.3273 Methinks, I suffer this severance from my husband through the potency of those celestial Lokapalas, who had come to the Swayamvara but whom I disregarded for the sake of Nala'
Mbh.3.70.3526 And after he had gone away, Damayanti oppressed with grief and distress, calling Sudeva, addressed him, O Yudhishthira, in the presence of her mother, saying, O Sudeva, go thou to the city of Ayodhya, straight as a bird, and tell king Rituparna living there, these words: Bhima's daughter, Damayanti will hold another Swayamvara.
Mbh.3.71.3534 If it pleases thee, I intend to go to Damayanti's Swayamvara in course of a single day'

Mbh.5.169.7674 Vanquishing on a single car all the assembled Kshatriyas of the world at the Swayamvara of the daughters of the ruler of Kasi, I abducted those maidens.

Mbh.7.10.387 That lord of battle, that foremost of bowmen, that hero of unbaffled aim and great strength, that tiger among men, viz, Yuyutsu, whom many wrathful kings battling together for six months at Varanavata from desire of slaying him could not vanquish, and who in battle at Varanasi overthrew with a broad-headed arrow that mighty car-warrior, viz, the prince of Kasi, desirous of seizing at a Swayamvara a maiden for wife, O, what hero of my army resisted him?
