MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.65.3273 And unto Virochana was born a son, Vali, of great prowess.
Mbh.1.65.3274 And the son of Vali is known to be the great Asura, Vana.
Mbh.1.104.5872 One day a king named Vali conversant with every duty went to the Ganges to perform his ablutions.
Mbh.1.104.5875 The virtuous Vali, ever devoted to truth, then learning who the man was that was thus saved by him, chose him for raising up offspring.
Mbh.1.104.5876 And Vali said, O illustrious one, it behoveth thee to raise upon my wife a few sons that shall be virtuous and wise'
Mbh.1.104.5878 Thereupon king Vali sent his wife Sudeshna unto him.
Mbh.1.104.5881 And beholding those eleven sons with Kakshivat as the eldest, who had studied all the Vedas and who like Rishis were utterers of Brahma and were possessed of great power, king Vali one day asked the Rishi saying, Are these children mine'
Mbh.1.104.5889 It was thus that the line of Vali was perpetuated, in days of old, by a great Rishi.
Mbh.1.140.7478 And the two warriors, like unto Indra and the Asura Virochana's son Vali, approaching each other for combat, began to grind each other's ranks.
Mbh.2.4.117 Upon the seats in that palace sat, along with the Pandavas, Rishis and kings that came from various countries, viz, Asita and Devala, Satya, Sarpamali and Mahasira; Arvavasu, Sumitra, Maitreya, Sunaka and Vali; Vaka, Dalvya, Sthulasira, Krishna-Dwaipayana, and Suka Sumanta, Jaimini, Paila, and the disciples of Vyasa, viz, ourselves; Tittiri, Yajanavalkya, and Lomaharshana with his son; Apsuhomya, Dhaumya, Animandavya; and Kausika; Damoshnisha and Traivali, Parnada, and Varayanuka, Maunjayana, Vayubhaksha, Parasarya, and Sarika; Valivaka, Silivaka, Satyapala, and Krita-srama; Jatukarna, and Sikhavat.
Mbh.2.9.375 And, O king, Vali the son of Virochana, and Naraka the subjugator of the whole Earth; Sanghraha and Viprachitti, and those Danavas called Kalakanja; and Suhanu and Durmukha and Sankha and Sumanas and also Sumati; and Ghatodara, and Mahaparswa, and Karthana and also Pithara and Viswarupa, Swarupa and Virupa, Mahasiras; and Dasagriva, Vali, and Meghavasas and Dasavara; Tittiva, and Vitabhuta, and Sanghrada, and Indratapana, these Daityas and Danavas, all bedecked with ear-rings and floral wreaths and crowns, and attired in the celestial robes, all blessed with boons and possessed of great bravery, and enjoying immortality, and all well of conduct and of excellent vows, wait upon and worship in that mansion the illustrious Varuna, the deity bearing the noose as his weapon.
Mbh.3.11.564 And that fight, so destructive of the trees, looked like the encounter in days of yore between the brothers Vali and Sugriva for the possession of the same woman.
Mbh.3.17.863 And the people beheld the fight between Salwa and the foremost of Vrishni heroes, which was even like unto the encounter between Vasava with Vali.
Mbh.3.26.1223 King Vali cherishing his subjects practised those duties that lead to salvation, and knew not of any other means in this world than Brahmanas.
Mbh.3.26.1224 It was for this that all the desires of Virochana's son, the Asura Vali, were ever gratified, and his wealth was ever inexhaustible.
Mbh.3.28.1284 SECTION XXVIII Draupadi continued, On this subject, the ancient story of the conversation between Prahlada and Vali, the son of Virochana, is quoted as an example.
Mbh.3.28.1285 One day Vali asked his grand-father Prahlada, the chief of the Asuras and the Danavas, possessed of great wisdom and well-versed in the mysteries of the science of duty, saying, O sire, is forgiveness meritorious or might and energy such?
Mbh.3.28.1289 Thus asked by Vali, his wise grandfather, conversant with every conclusion, replied upon the whole subject unto his grand-son who had sought at his hands the resolution of his doubts.
Mbh.3.102.5331 And that other great Asura also, Vali by name, was incapable of being slain by any one.
Mbh.3.146.7511 All the mighty monkey-kings, and monkey-chiefs used to wait upon that son of the sun, Sugriva, and that son of Sakra, Vali.
Mbh.3.147.7519 And the latter, having slain Vali installed Sugriva in the kingdom.
Mbh.3.156.7900 And seeing Bhima waiting in expectation of fight, the Rakshasa also darted towards him in anger, like unto Vali towards the wielder of the thunderbolt, repeatedly gaping and licking the corners of his mouth.
Mbh.3.156.7908 Thus that encounter with trees, destructive of plants, went on like unto that between the two brothers Vali and Sugriva, desirous of the possession of a single woman.
Mbh.3.167.8470 Then I set out, ascending that splendid chariot riding on which in days of yore, the lord of the celestials and vanquished Vali, that son of Virochana.
Mbh.3.270.13196 And that Being, arriving at the sacrificial enclosure of Vali, king of the Danavas, entered the sacrificial assembly with the aid of Vrihaspati.
Mbh.3.270.13197 And beholding that dwarf-bodied Being, Vali was well-pleased and said unto him, I am glad to see thee, O Brahmana!
Mbh.3.270.13199 Thus addressed by Vali, the dwarf-god replied with a smile, saying, So be it!
Mbh.3.270.13201 And Vali contented to give what that Brahmana of infinite power had asked.
Mbh.3.277.13530 There dwelleth, with four of his counsellors, Sugriva, the brother of the monkey-king Vali decked with a garland of gold.
Mbh.3.278.13553 And Rama also pledged himself to slay Vali in battle.
Mbh.3.278.13554 And having come to that understanding and placing the fullest confidence in each other, they all repaired to Kiskindhya, desirous of battle with Vali.
Mbh.3.278.13556 Unable to bear that challenge, Vali was for coming out but his wife Tara stood in way, saying, Himself endued with great strength, the way in which Sugriva is roaring, showeth, I ween, that he hath found assistance!
Mbh.3.278.13558 Thus addressed by her, that king of the monkeys, the eloquent Vali, decked in a golden garland replied unto Tara of face beautiful as the moon, saying, Thou understandest the voice of every creature.
Mbh.3.278.13570 Thus addressed by Vali, Sugriva, that slayer of foes, as if addressing Rama himself for informing him of what had happened, replied unto his brother in these words of grave import, O king, robbed by thee of my wife and my kingdom also, what need have I of life?
Mbh.3.278.13572 Then addressing each other in these and other words of the same import, Vali and Sugriva rushed to the encounter, fighting with Sala and Tala trees and stones.
Mbh.3.278.13580 And Rama, recognising Sugriva by that sign, then drew his foremost of huge bows, aiming at Vali as his mark.
Mbh.3.278.13582 And Vali, pierced in the heart by that arrow, trembled in fear.
Mbh.3.278.13583 And Vali, his heart having been pierced through, began to vomit forth blood.
Mbh.3.278.13585 And reproving that descendant of Kakutstha's race, Vali fell down on the ground and became senseless.
Mbh.3.278.13587 And after Vali had been thus slain, Sugriva regained possession of Kishkindhya, and along with it, of the widowed Tara also of face beautiful as the moon.
Mbh.3.280.13675 And virtuous Rama, dejected in spirits at the thought of Sita's captivity in the abode of the Rakshasa, addressed the heroic Lakshmana in the morning saying, Go, Lakshmana and seek in Kishkindhya that ungrateful king off the monkeys, who understand well his own interest and is even now indulging in dissipations, that foolish wretch of his race whom I have installed on a throne and to whom all apes and monkeys and bears owe allegiance, that fellow for whose sake, O mighty-armed perpetuator of Raghu's race, Vali was slain by me with thy help in the wood of Kishkindhya!
Mbh.3.280.13678 If thou findest him lukewarm and rolling in sensual joys, thou must then send him, by the path Vali hath been made to follow, to the common goal of all creatures!
Mbh.3.280.13698 After the lapse of two months, several monkeys seeking with haste the presence of Sugriva, addressed him, saying, O king, that foremost of monkeys, the son of Pavana, as also Angada, the son of Vali, and the other great monkeys whom thou hadst despatched to search the southern region, have come back and are pillaging that great and excellent orchard called Madhuvana, which was always guarded by Vali and which hath been well-guarded by thee also after him'
Mbh.3.281.13762 The father-in-law of Vali, the illustrious Sushena, accompanied by a thousand crores of active apes, came to Rama.
Mbh.3.286.13980 Then the handsome Angada, the son of Vali, taking up a large tree, rushed impetuously at Indrajit and struck him with it on the head.
Mbh.3.286.13984 Angada, the powerful son of Vali, little recking that stroke, hurled at Indrajit a mighty Sal stem.
Mbh.3.313.15569 Then how disguising himself in the form of a dwarf, he by his prowess deprived Vali of his kingdom, hath been heard by thee!
Mbh.4.22.986 And then between those lions among men, fired with wrath, between that chief of the Kichaka clan, and that best of men, there ensued a hand-to-hand encounter, like that between two powerful elephants for a female elephant in the season of spring, or like that which happened in days of yore between those lions among monkeys, the brothers Vali and Sugriva.
Mbh.4.58.2277 And, O bull of the Bharata race, the encounter that took place between Drona and Kunti's son was dreadful in the extreme and resembled that between Vali and Vasava.
Mbh.5.10.396 Thou didst bind the great Asura Vali and hadst raised Indra to the throne of heaven.
Mbh.5.32.1466 depended for their development or otherwise on acts, and beholding also prosperity and adversity and stability and instability in persons and their possessions, king Vali, in his search after causes, having failed to discover a beginning in the chain of acts of former lives one before another, regarded the eternal Essence to be the cause of everything.
Mbh.5.38.2052 Thou shalt, therefore, soon see that swelling affluence fall off, like Vali fallen off from the three worlds
Mbh.5.111.5094 In covering, O Brahmana, the three worlds with three steps in the sacrifice of Vali the Asura king, Vishnu had covered this whole northern region; and, accordingly, there is a spot here called Vishnupada.
Mbh.5.130.5761 We, however, shall forcibly seize this tiger among men, Hrishikesa, first, like Indra forcibly seizing Virochana's son Vali.
Mbh.6.117.6377 Verily, O scorcher of foes, the battle, for Bhishma's sake, that took place between them, both excited with rage and both conversant with every mode of fight, was like the encounter of Vali and Vasava in days of old on the occasion of the battle between the gods and the Asuras.
Mbh.7.1.25 Indeed, after the fall of that foremost one of Bharata's race, the Kuru host looked like the firmament divested of stars, or like the sky without the atmosphere, or like the earth with blasted crops, or like an oration disfigured by bad grammar or like the Asura host of old after Vali had been smitten down, or like a beautiful damsel deprived of husband or like a river whose waters have been dried up, or like a roe deprived of her mate and encompassed in the woods by wolves; or like a spacious mountain cave with its lion killed by a Sarabha
Mbh.7.21.961 The Preceptor and the Panchala prince, both endued with great might, fought with each other, agitating each other's troops, like Indra and Vali.
Mbh.7.23.1186 Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, with their troops encountered Virata, the ruler of Matsyas at the head of his forces, like Indra and Agni in days of old encountering the Asura Vali.
Mbh.7.91.4212 And the mighty-armed king proceeded, with the sound of diverse kinds of musical instruments, against his foe, like Virochana's son Vali in days of yore.
Mbh.7.114.5571 The encounter that then took place between Drona and Satwata in the very sight of all the troops was extremely fierce, like that between Vali and Vasava in days of old.
Mbh.7.139.6955 This encounter with thee hath always been desired by me, like the encounter of Sakra with Vali in the battle between the gods and the Asuras in days of old.
Mbh.7.153.8030 Then commenced a battle between Drona and the Pandavas, resembling that between Vali and the celestials for acquiring sovereignty oft the three worlds.
Mbh.7.168.9068 The encounter then, that took place between mighty Satyaki and the industrious Karna, resembled, O king, that between Vali and Vasava in the days of yore.
Mbh.7.176.9581 Indeed, the battle that took place between Bhima's son and Alayudha, was, O king, dreadful in the extreme, like that in days of old, O monarch, between Vali and Sugriva, those two princes among the monkeys.
Mbh.8.20.869 Then like the chief of the celestials joyfully worshipping Vishnu after the subjugation of the Asura Vali, thy son, the king, accompanied by his brothers approaching the preceptor's son worshipped with great respect that warrior who is a complete master of the science of arms, after indeed, he had completed the task he had undertaken
Mbh.8.79.4893 Possessed of prowess equal to that of the thousand-armed Kartavirya, Partha then showered his shafts on Kripa's bow with arrow fixed on it, his steeds, his standard, and his driver, like the wielder of the thunder in days of yore showering his shafts on the asura Vali.
Mbh.8.87.5248 Beholding those two warriors that resembled Indra and Virochana's son Vali carefully preparing for battle for the conquest of the three worlds, all creatures were filled with wonder.
Mbh.8.93.5960 Then Duryodhana challenged all the Pandavas to battle, O chief of Bharata's race, like the Asura Vali in days of yore challenging the gods.
Mbh.8.94.6073 Having received all their friends then, each according to his age, and applauded by those friends in return for their incomparable feats, the two heroes rejoiced with their friends, like the chief of the celestials and Vishnu after the overthrow of Vali
Mbh.9.3.201 Then Duryodhana challenged all the Pandavas to battle, O chief of Bharata's race, like the Asura Vali in days of yore challenging all the celestials.
Mbh.9.19.1184 Today he will know the awful might of the high-souled Bhima when Duryodhana will be slain in battle even as the Asura Vali was slain by Indra.
Mbh.9.29.2047 Vali himself was bound by that high-souled one Upendra, with the aid of many acts and means!
Mbh.9.53.3831 Each like the other in feats, they looked like Sunda and Upasunda, or Rama and Ravana, or Vali and Sugriva.
Mbh.12.89.5060 In consequence of malice towards the Brahmanas springing from his folly, the goddess of prosperity who had formerly dwelt with him became enraged and deserted the Asura Vali, the son of Virochana.
Mbh.12.89.5062 Beholding the goddess living with Purandara, Vali indulged in many vain regrets.
Mbh.12.165.9831 They were Hiranyakasipu, and Hiranyaksha, and Virochana, and Samvara, and Viprachitti, and Prahlada, and Namuchi, and Vali.
Mbh.12.179.10779 It was through wisdom that Vali, Prahlada, Namuchi, and Manki, when they lost their earthly prosperity, succeeded in acquiring felicity.
Mbh.12.222.13448 Bhishma said, In this connection is cited the old narrative of the discourse between Vasava and Virochana's son, Vali.
Mbh.12.222.13449 One day Vasava, after having subjugated all the Asuras, repaired to the Grandsire and joining his hands bowed to him and enquired after the whereabouts of Vali.
Mbh.12.222.13450 Tell me, O Brahman, where I may now find that Vali whose wealth continued undiminished even though he used to give it away as lavishly as he wished.
Mbh.12.222.13458 Indeed, O Brahman, tell me where I may find Vali now.
Mbh.12.222.13461 I do not now see that Vali.
Mbh.12.222.13463 Brahman said, It is not becoming in thee, O Maghavat, to thus enquire after Vali now.
Mbh.12.222.13465 For this reason, I shall tell thee the whereabouts of Vali.
Mbh.12.222.13466 O lord of Sachi, Vali may now have taken his birth among camels or bulls or asses or horses, and having become the foremost of his species may now be staying in an empty apartment'
Mbh.12.222.13467 Sakra said, If, O Brahman, I happen to meet with Vali in an empty apartment, shall I slay him or spare him?
Mbh.12.222.13469 Brahman said, Do not, O Sakra, injure Vali, Vali does not deserve death.
Mbh.12.222.13472 He succeeded in meeting with Vali, who, as the Creator had said, was living in an empty apartment clothed in the form of an ass'
Mbh.12.222.13494 Vali said, Thou seest not now, O Vasava, my jar and umbrella and fans.
Mbh.12.223.13503 SECTION CCXXIV Bhishma said, Once more, laughing at Vali who was sighing like a snake, Sakra addressed him for saying something more pointed than what had said before
Mbh.12.223.13509 Vali said, Considering all this to be transitory, due, indeed, to the course of time, I do not, O Sakra, indulge in grief.
Mbh.12.223.13560 Their understandings stupefied by ignorance, all creatures used to flatter me, saying, Salutations to that point of the compass whither Virochana's son Vali may now be staying'
Mbh.12.224.13632 SECTION CCXXV Bhishma said, After this, he of hundred sacrifices beheld the goddess of Prosperity, in her own embodied form that blazed splendour, issue out of the form of the high-souled Vali.
Mbh.12.224.13633 The illustrious chastiser of Paka, beholding the goddess blazing with radiance, addressed Vali in these words, with eyes expanded in wonder'
Mbh.12.224.13634 Sakra said, O Vali, who is this one, thus shining with splendour, thus decked with head plumes, thus adorned with golden bracelets on her upper arms, and thus emitting a halo of glory on all sides in consequence of her energy that is issuing out of thy body'
Mbh.12.224.13635 Vali said, I do not know whether she is an Asura damsel or a celestial one or a human one.
Mbh.12.224.13638 Sakra said, O thou of sweet smiles, who art thou that art possessed of such radiance and adorned with plumes that thus issuest from the body of Vali.
Mbh.12.224.13644 This Vali also that is the son of Virochana knows me not.
Mbh.12.224.13650 Sakra said, O lady that is difficult of being borne, why do you desert Vali now after having lived in him for a long time?
Mbh.12.224.13651 Is it due to any act of mine or is it due to any act that Vali has done'
Mbh.12.224.13654 Do not, O Sakra, disregard Vali'
Mbh.12.224.13655 Sakra said, For what reason, O goddess adorned with plumes, do you desert Vali?
Mbh.12.224.13659 Vali hath fallen off from all these.
Mbh.12.224.13698 The chief of the Daityas, viz, Vali, thus deserted by Sree, then said these words'
Mbh.12.224.13699 Vali said, At present the Sun shines as much in the east as in the west, and as much in the north as in the south.
Mbh.12.224.13703 It is for this reason, O Vali, that I do not hurl my thunderbolt upon thy head.
Mbh.12.224.13711 Bhishma continued, Thus addressed by Indra, O Bharata, Vali, the chief of the Daityas, proceeded towards the south.
Mbh.12.224.13713 The thousand-eyed Indra, after having listened to this speech of Vali which was characterised by an entire absence of pride, then ascended the skies'
Mbh.12.226.13766 In this connection is once more cited the old narrative of the discourse between Vali and Vasava, O Yudhishthira!
Mbh.12.226.13768 Vali became king.
Mbh.12.226.13773 One day, while thus engaged, the wielder of the thunderbolt beheld Virochana's son Vali within a certain mountain cave on the sea-shore.
Mbh.12.226.13776 Indra also, seeing Vali staying unmoved and fearless, addressed him from the back of his foremost of elephants, saying, How is it, O Daitya, that thou art so unmoved?
Mbh.12.226.13792 Who else, O Vali, than one like thee, could venture to bear the burthen of existence after being shorn of the sovereignty of the three worlds'
Mbh.12.226.13793 Hearing without any pain these and other cutting speeches that Indra addressed to him, asserting the while his own superiority over him, Vali, the son of Virochana, fearlessly answered his interrogator, saying the following words'
Mbh.12.226.13794 Vali said, When calamities have oppressed me, O Sakra, what dost thou gain by such brag now?
Mbh.12.339.21928 Unto Virochana the son of Prahlada will be born a mighty son of the name of Vali.
Mbh.12.339.21932 I shall taking the sovereignty of the three worlds Vali restore it to Indra of immeasurable splendour, and replace the deities, O Narada, in their respective stations.
Mbh.12.339.21933 As regards Vali, that foremost of Danavas, who is to be unslayable by all the deities, I shall cause him to dwell in the nether regions.
Mbh.12.339.21945 Vanquishing next the son of the Danava Vali, viz, Vana, who will be endued with a thousand arms, I shall next destroy all the inhabitants of the Danava city called Saubha
Mbh.13.6.415 Vali, the son of Virochana, righteously bound by his promise, was consigned to the regions under the Earth, by the prowess of Vishnu.
Mbh.13.17.2073 Thou art Vamana the dwarf who deceived the Asura chief Vali and depriving him of his sovereignty restored it unto Indra.
Mbh.13.17.2572 Thou art the youngest son of Aditi and Kasyapa, being in the form of the dwarf who is otherwise known by the name of Upendra and who beguiled the Asura Vali of his lordship of the three worlds and restored it to the chief of the celestials.
Mbh.13.39.4311 That illusion which the Asura Samvara possessed, that illusion which the Asura Namuchi possessed, that illusion which Vali or Kumbbinasi had, the sum total thereof is possessed by women.
Mbh.13.90.8080 Whatever, again, is given with malice, and whatever is given without reverence, have been ordained by Brahmana himself as the portion of the prince of Asuras viz, Vali.
Mbh.13.97.8748 These, O Madhava, are known as the Vali offerings.
Mbh.13.97.8749 The Vali should be offered to the Maruts and the deities in the interior of one's house.
Mbh.13.97.8752 When a man desires to offer Sraddha to his ancestors, he should, when the Sraddha ceremony is concluded, gratify his ancestors and then make the Vali offerings in due order.
Mbh.13.98.8788 Manu said, In this connection is recited the old history of the discourse between Sukra and the high-souled Daitya Vali.
Mbh.13.98.8789 Once on a time, Sukra of Bhrigu's race approached the presence of Vali, the son of Virochana, while he was ruling the three worlds.
Mbh.13.98.8793 Vali said, O foremost of all persons conversant with Brahma, what, indeed, is the merit of giving flowers and incense and lamps?
Mbh.13.98.8877 I shall now discourse to thee upon the merits, with the fruits they bring about, that attach to Vali offerings made to the deities, the Yakshas, the Uragas, human beings, spirits, and Rakshasas.
Mbh.13.98.8880 One should offer the Vali unto the deities, bending one head in reverence.
Mbh.13.98.8894 Even thus did the learned Kavi of Bhrigu's race discourse to Vali, the chief of the Asuras.
Mbh.13.99.8899 I have heard thee speak also of the merits that attach to a due observance of the ordinances in respect of the presentation of the Vali.
Mbh.13.99.8907 The diverse rites with respect to the sacrificial fire, the collection of sacred fuel and of Kusa grass, as also of flowers, and the presentation of Vali consisting of food adorned with fried paddy reduced to powder, and the offer of incense and of light, all these, O monarch, occurred daily in the abode of that high-souled king while he dwelt in heaven.
Mbh.13.100.8951 The particular offerings called Vali should also be presented to the household deities.
Mbh.13.109.9912 By observing a fast on the twelfth day of the moon in the month of Ashadha and worshipping Krishna as the dwarf who beguiled the Asura king Vali, one attains to the merits of the Naramedha sacrifice and sports in happiness with the Apsaras.
Mbh.13.126.10985 Assuming the form of a dwarf I conquered the Asura king Vali.
Mbh.13.132.11219 Casting aside wrath, and living on regulated diet, one should make these offerings at a Sraddha, uttering these mantras the while, Let Valadeva and other Nagas possessed of great strength, let other mighty snakes of huge bodies that are indestructible and eternal, and let all the other great snakes that have taken their birth in their race, make Vali offerings to me for the enhancement of my strength and energy.
Mbh.13.132.11221 Uttering these mantras, one should make Vali offerings upon an ant-hill.
Mbh.13.132.11228 We think that the making of such Vali offerings on the ant-hill is really fraught with very superior merits.
Mbh.13.134.11256 Taking a vessel of copper and placing therein some cooked food after having mixed it with honey, one should offer it as Vali unto the rising moon on the evening of the day when that luminary is at full.
Mbh.13.149.12530 He that took birth as a dwarf from Aditi by her husband Kasyapa in order to beguile the Asura king Vali of the sovereignty of the three worlds, and bestow the same upon Indra who had been dispossessed of it, He that is tall in allusion to the vast universal form of His which He assumed at the sacrifice of Vali for covering Heaven, Earth, and the Nether regions with three steps of His.
