See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.2.388 Then hath been described the history of king Mandhata; then the history of prince Jantu; and how king Somaka by offering up his only son Jantu in sacrifice obtained a hundred others; then the excellent history of the hawk and the pigeon; then the examination of king Sivi by Indra, Agni, and Dharma; then the story of Ashtavakra, in which occurs the disputation, at the sacrifice of Janaka, between that Rishi and the first of logicians, Vandi, the son of Varuna; the defeat of Vandi by the great Ashtavakra, and the release by the Rishi of his father from the depths of the ocean.
Mbh.1.5.988 The great and blessed saint Bhrigu, we are informed, was produced by the self-existing Brahma from the fire at the sacrifice of Varuna.
Mbh.1.18.1366 And many denizens of the lower regions and the world of Varuna were killed.
Mbh.1.21.1459 On their way they saw the Ocean, that receptacle of waters, vast and deep, rolling and tremendously roaring, full of fishes large enough to swallow the whale, and abounding with huge makaras and creatures of various forms by thousands, and rendered inaccessible by the presence of other terrible, monster-shaped, dark, and fierce aquatic animals, abounding with tortoises and crocodiles, the mine of all kinds of gems, the home of Varuna the water-God, the excellent and beautiful residence of the Nagas, the lord of all rivers, the abode of the subterranean fire, the friend or asylum of the Asuras, the terror of all creatures, the grand reservoir of water, and ever immutable.
Mbh.1.22.1482 And on their way they saw the Ocean, that receptacle of waters, incapable of being easily disturbed, mightily agitated all of a sudden by the wind, and roaring tremendously; abounding with fishes capable of swallowing the whale and full of makaras; containing also creatures of diverse forms counted by thousands; frightful from the presence of horrible monsters, inaccessible, deep, and terrible, the mine of all kinds of gems, the home of Varuna the water-god, the wonderful habitations of the Nagas, the lord of rivers, the abode of the subterranean fire; the residence of the Asuras and of many dreadful creatures; the reservoir of water, not subject to decay, aromatic, and wonderful, the great source of the amrita of the celestials; immeasurable and inconceivable, containing waters that are holy, filled to the brim by many thousands of great rivers, dancing as it were in waves.
Mbh.1.39.2094 And much time did not elapse from this, when the gods and the Asuras, assembling together, churned the abode of Varuna.
Mbh.1.55.2725 SECTION LV Astika Parva continued Astika said, Soma and Varuna and Prajapati performed sacrifices of old in Prayaga.
Mbh.1.55.2745 Indeed, thou art either Varuna, or Yama, the god of Justice.
Mbh.1.65.3266 They are Dhatri, Mitra, Aryaman, Sakra, Varuna, Ansa, Vaga, Vivaswat, Usha, Savitri, Tvashtri, and Vishnu.
Mbh.1.65.3297 And Sesha or Ananta, Vasuki, Takshaka, Kumara, and Kulika are known to be the sons of Kadru; and Bhimasena, Ugrasena, Suparna, Varuna, Gopati, and Dhritarashtra, and Suryavarchas the seventh, Satyavachas, Arkaparna, Prayuta, Bhima, and Chitraratha known to fame, of great learning, and a controller of his passions, and then Kalisiras, and, O king, Parjanya, the fourteenth in the list, Kali, the fifteenth, and Narada, the sixteenth, these Devas and Gandharvas are known to be the sons of Muni Daksha's daughter as mentioned before.
Mbh.1.66.3396 And the daughter born of Sukra, named Divi, became the eldest wife of Varuna.
Mbh.1.74.4028 I can repair to the abodes of Indra, Kuvera, Yama, and Varuna!
Mbh.1.82.4595 Then Sarmishtha of sweet smiles seeing the monarch before her with nobody to witness what might pass, approached him and said with joined palms, O son of Nahusha, no one can behold the ladies that dwell in the inner apartments of Soma, of Indra, of Vishnu, of Yama, of Varuna, and of thee!
Mbh.1.99.5501 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed, the celestial daughter of Jahnu, Ganga, then replied unto the monarch, her husband, that bull amongst men, saying, O best of Bharata's race, he who was obtained as son by Varuna was called Vasishtha, the Muni who afterwards came to be known as Apava.
Mbh.1.99.5505 And, O best of Bharata's race, that foremost of virtuous men, the son of Varuna, practised his ascetic penances in those woods abounding with sweet roots and water.
Mbh.1.99.5508 The virtuous son of Varuna obtained Nandini for his Homa rites.
Mbh.1.99.5525 When the son of Varuna returned to his asylum in the evening with fruits he had collected, he beheld not the cow with her calf there.
Mbh.1.102.5755 Then the Kuru chief fixed the Varuna weapon on his bow-string, and with it afflicted the four steeds of king Salya.
Mbh.1.105.5941 Indeed, this practice that is conformable to the true and eternal religion is known to me, I shall give unto my brother children that shall be like unto Mitra and Varuna.
Mbh.1.123.6658 And Dharti and Aryaman and Mitra and Varuna, Bhaga and Indra, Vivaswat, Pushan, Tvastri and Parjanya or Vishnu, these twelve Adityas came there to glorify Pandu's son.
Mbh.1.134.7185 Jishnu Arjuna came to know of this, and thereupon filling his narrow-mouthed vessel with water by means of the Varuna weapon he used to come unto his preceptor at the same time with his preceptor's son.
Mbh.1.137.7338 By the Agneya weapon, he created fire, and by the Varuna weapon he created water, by the Vayavya weapon, he created air, and by the Parjanya weapon he created clouds.
Mbh.1.181.9263 Vasishtha continued, Then, O child, Aurva cast the fire of his wrath into the abode of Varuna.
Mbh.1.198.9814 Then Soma and Sakra and Varuna and Kuvera, the Sadhyas, the Rudras, the Vasus, the twin Aswins, these and other celestials went unto Prajapati, the Creator of the universe.
Mbh.1.226.11052 SECTION CCXXVII Khandava-daha Parva continued Vaisampayana, said, Thus addressed by Arjuna, the smoke-bannered Hutasana, desirous of an interview with Varuna, recollected that son of Aditi, that deity protecting one of the points of the heavens and having his home in the water and ruling that element.
Mbh.1.226.11053 Varuna, knowing that he was thought of by Pavaka, immediately appeared before that deity.
Mbh.1.226.11057 Hearing these words, Varuna replied unto Pavaka, saying, Well, I am giving them'
Mbh.1.226.11065 Varuna also gave two inexhaustible quivers, and he also gave a car furnished with celestial weapons and whose banner bore a large ape.
Mbh.1.226.11090 And the lord Varuna, after this, gave unto Krishna a mace, of name Kaumodaki, capable of slaying every Daitya and producing, when hurled, a roar like that of the thunder.
Mbh.1.228.11162 Yama, O king, took up the death-dealing mace, and Kuvera his spiked club, and Varuna his noose and beautiful missile.
Mbh.1.233.11408 O thou of fierce rays, this our human body dependeth on Varuna the water-god!
Mbh.2.3.74 There is also in that lake a large conch-shell called Devadatta of loud sound, that came from Varuna.
Mbh.2.6.297 I shall, however, describe unto thee the rooms of the king of the departed Yama, of Varuna Neptune of great intelligence, of Indra, the King of Gods and also of him who hath his home in Kailasha Kuvera.
Mbh.2.6.309 Who wait upon Varuna and upon Kuvera in their respective assembly rooms.
Mbh.2.8.361 I shall now describe unto the assembly house of Varuna also called Pushkaramalini
Mbh.2.9.362 SECTION IX Narada said, O Yudhishthira, the celestial Sabha of Varuna is unparalleled in splendour.
Mbh.2.9.370 Owned by Varuna, that delightful assembly house of pure white consists of many rooms and is furnished with many seats.
Mbh.2.9.371 There sitteth Varuna attired in celestial robe, decked in celestial ornaments and jewels, with his queen, adorned with celestial scents and besmeared with paste of celestial fragrance.
Mbh.2.9.372 The Adityas wait upon and worship the illustrious Varuna, the lord of the waters.
Mbh.2.9.374 O Yudhishthira, without anxiety of any kind, wait upon and worship the illustrious Varuna.
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.2.9.376 And, O king, there are also the four oceans, the river Bhagirathee, the Kalindi, the Vidisa, the Venwa, the Narmada of rapid current; the Vipasa, the Satadu, the Chandrabhaga, the Saraswati; the Iravati, the Vitasta, the Sindhu, the Devanadi; the Godavari, the Krishnavenwa and that queen of rivers the Kaveri; the Kimpuna, the Visalya and the river Vaitarani also; the Tritiya, the Jeshthila, and the great Sone Soane; the Charmanwati and the great river Parnasa; the Sarayu, the Varavatya, and that queen of rivers the Langali, the Karatoya, the Atreyi, the red Mahanada, the Laghanti, the Gomati, the Sandhya, and also the Trisrotasi, these and other rivers which are all sacred and are world-renowned places of pilgrimage, as also other rivers and sacred waters and lakes and wells and springs, and tanks, large or small, in their personified form, O Bharata, wait upon and worship the lord Varuna.
Mbh.2.9.377 The points of the heavens, the Earth, and all the Mountains, as also every species of aquatic animals, all worship Varuna there.
Mbh.2.9.378 And various tribes of Gandharvas and Apsaras, devoted to music, both vocal and instrumental, wait upon Varuna, singing eulogistic hymns unto him.
Mbh.2.9.380 And the chief minister of Varuna, Sunabha by name, surrounded by his sons and grandsons, also attend upon his master, along with the personified form of a sacred water called go.
Mbh.2.9.382 O bull of the Bharata race, such is the assembly room of Varuna seen by me before, in the course of my wanderings.
Mbh.2.11.448 And Purandara the chief of the celestials, and Varuna and Kuvera and Yama, and Mahadeva accompanied by Uma, always repair thither.
Mbh.2.12.459 And, O master, almost all the Nagas, and principal Daityas, and rivers, and oceans, are to be found in the Sabha of Varuna.
Mbh.2.13.532 Those ministers in a body, thus asked by the wise Yudhishthira desirous of performing the sacrifice, then told him these words of grave import, One already in possession of a kingdom desireth all the attributes of an emperor by means of that sacrifice which aideth a king in acquiring the attributes of Varuna.
Mbh.2.14.589 He also that beareth on his head that gem which is known as the most wonderful on earth, that king of the Yavanas, who hath chastised Muru and Naraka, whose power is unlimited, and who ruleth the west like another Varuna, who is called Bhagadatta, and who is the old friend of thy father, hath bowed his head before Jarasandha, by speech and specially by act.
Mbh.2.31.1361 Thus, O king, did Nakula subjugate the countries that lay to the west, the direction that is presided over by the god Varuna, and that had once before been subjugated by Vasudeva himself
Mbh.2.34.1455 Yudhisthira, as though vying with Varuna himself in wealth, commenced the sacrifice of Rajasuya distinguished by six fires and large gifts to Brahmanas.
Mbh.2.48.2008 And O king, the prosperity that I beheld of Yudhishthira was such that neither the chief himself of the celestials, nor Yama or Varuna, nor the lord of the Guhyakas owneth the same.
Mbh.2.52.2185 And the Ocean himself brought in a sling that big conch of Varuna which the celestial artificer Viswakarman had constructed with a thousand Nishkas of gold, and which Prajapati had in a former Kalpa, presented unto India.
Mbh.2.66.2904 He that knoweth, but answereth not a question from temptation, anger or fear, casteth upon himself a thousand nooses of Varuna.
Mbh.2.66.2905 And the person who, cited as a witness with respect to any matter of ocular or auricular knowledge, speaketh carelessly, casteth a thousand nooses of Varuna upon his own person.
Mbh.2.76.3269 Therefore, resolve thou earnestly to win victory, which belongeth to Indra; to control thy wrath, which belongeth to Yama; to give in charity, which belongeth to Kuvera; and to control all passions, which belongeth to Varuna.
Mbh.3.3.196 Ravi, Gabhastimat, Aja, Kala, Mrityu, Dhatri, Prabhakara, Prithibi, Apa, Teja, Kha, Vayu, the sole stay, Soma, Vrihaspati, Sukra, Budha, Angaraka, Indra, Vivaswat, Diptanshu, Suchi, Sauri, Sanaichara, Brahma, Vishnu, Rudra, Skanda, Vaisravana, Yama, Vaidyutagni, Jatharagni, Aindhna, Tejasampati, Dharmadhwaja, Veda-karttri, Vedanga, Vedavahana, Krita, Treta, Dwapara, Kali, full of every impurity, Kala, Kastha, Muhurtta, Kshapa, Yama, and Kshana; Samvatsara-kara, Aswattha, Kalachakra, Bibhavasu, Purusha, Saswata, Yogin, Vyaktavyakta, Sanatana, Kaladhyaksha, Prajadhyaksha, Viswakarma, Tamounda, Varuna, Sagara, Ansu, Jimuta, Jivana, Arihan, Bhutasraya, Bhutapati, Srastri, Samvartaka, Vanhi, Sarvadi, Alolupa, Ananta, Kapila, Bhanu, Kamada, Sarvatomukha, Jaya, Visala, Varada, Manas, Suparna, Bhutadi, Sighraga, Prandharana, Dhanwantari, Dhumaketu, Adideva, Aditisuta, Dwadasatman, Aravindaksha, Pitri, Matri, Pitamaha, Swarga-dwara, Prajadwara, Mokshadwara, Tripistapa, Dehakarti, Prasantatman, Viswatman, Viswatomukha, Characharatman, Sukhsmatman, the merciful Maitreya.
Mbh.3.36.1888 And let Arjuna, O son of Pandu, go unto Mahendra and Rudra, and Varuna, and Kuvera, and Yama, for receiving weapon from them.
Mbh.3.40.2155 Neither the chief himself of the gods, nor Yama, nor the king of the Yakshas, nor Varuna, nor Vayu, knoweth it.
Mbh.3.41.2181 And while the son of Pritha, endued with immeasurable energy, was thinking thus, there came to that place Varuna the god of waters, handsome and of the splendour of the lapis lazuli accompanied by all kinds of aquatic creatures, and filling all the points of the horizon with a blazing effulgence.
Mbh.3.41.2182 And accompanied by Rivers both male and female, and Nagas, and Daityas and Sadhyas and inferior deities, Varuna, the controller and lord of all aquatic creatures, arrived at that spot.
Mbh.3.41.2205 Then Varuna, the lord of all aquatic creatures, blue as the clouds, from a summit he had occupied on the west, uttered these words, O son of Pritha, thou art the foremost of Kshatriyas, and engaged in Kshatriya practices.
Mbh.3.41.2207 I am Varuna, the lord of waters.
Mbh.3.41.2209 O son of Kunti, accept of me these Varuna weapons along with the mysteries of hurling and withdrawing them.
Mbh.3.41.2214 Vaisampayana continued, After both Varuna and Yama had given away their celestial weapons, the lord of treasures having his home on the heights of Kailasa, then spake, O son of Pandu, O thou of great might and wisdom, I too have been pleased with thee.
Mbh.3.45.2343 He who is known amongst gods and men for his many inborn virtues, for his grace, behaviour, beauty of person, vows and self-control; who is noted for might and prowess, and respected by the virtuous, and ready-witted; who is endued with genius and splendid energy, is of a forgiving temper and without malice of any kind; who hath studied the four Vedas with their branches, and the Upanishads, and the Puranas also; who is endued with devotion to his preceptors and with intellect possessed of the eight attributes, who by his abstinence, ability, origin and age, is alone capable of protecting the celestial regions like Mahavat himself; who is never boastful; who showeth proper respect to all; who beholdeth the minutest things as clearly as if those were gross and large; who is sweet-speeched; who showereth diverse kinds of food and drink on his friends and dependents; who is truthful, worshipped of all, eloquent, handsome, and without pride; who is kind to those devoted to him, and universally pleasing and dear to all; who is firm in promise; who is equal to even Mahendra and Varuna in respect of every desirable attribute, viz, Arjuna, is known to thee.
Mbh.3.55.2752 The gods, Sakra and Agni and Varuna and Yama, desire to obtain thee.
Mbh.3.55.2782 The celestials, Sakra, Agni, Varuna and Yama, desire to have thee.
Mbh.3.56.2802 Or, if thou couldst choose in thy heart Varuna amongst the Lokapalas, do so unhesitatingly.
Mbh.3.82.4041 Arriving then, O Bharata, at the spot where the Sindhu mingleth with the sea, one should with subdued soul bathe in that tirtha of Varuna.
Mbh.3.82.4042 And bathing there and giving oblations of water to the Pitris, the Rishis, and the gods one acquireth, O bull of the Bharata race, the region of Varuna, and blazeth forth in effulgence of his own.
Mbh.3.83.4321 One should next go to the tirtha of Varuna called Taijasa, blazing in effulgence of its own.
Mbh.3.85.4654 It was there that the Rishis and the gods Varuna, Agni, Prajapati, Narayana also called Hari, Mahadeva and the illustrious Grandsire of great splendour, appointed the resplendent Bhrigu to officiate at a sacrifice.
Mbh.3.88.4821 And, O Yudhishthira, in the country of the Pandyas are the tirthas named Agastya and Varuna!
Mbh.3.90.4878 There also is Visakhayupa to which, in days of yore, came the gods with Varuna and Indra, and practised ascetic austerities.
Mbh.3.91.4910 And, O Yudhishthira, Arjuna of immeasurable prowess hath also acquired Vajras and Dandas and other celestial weapons from Yama and Kuvera and Varuna and Indra, O son of the Kuru race!
Mbh.3.101.5306 And thenceforth they made the ocean, that abode of Varuna, with billows high as hills, their fort, from which to make their sallies
Mbh.3.102.5307 SECTION CII Lomasa said, The Kalakeyas then having recourse to that receptacle of waters, which is the abode of Varuna, began their operations for the destruction of the universe.
Mbh.3.103.5350 And when they saw that Vritra was slain by the sagacious Indra endued with a thousand eyes, they, to preserve their lives, entered into the ocean, that abode of Varuna.
Mbh.3.103.5357 Then they beheld the high-souled Agastya, the son of Varuna, of resplendent mien, and waited upon by saints, even as Brahma is waited upon by celestials.
Mbh.3.103.5358 And approaching him, they addressed the son of Mitra and Varuna at the hermitage, magnanimous and unswerving, and looking like an embodiment of pious works piled together, and glorified him by reciting his deeds.
Mbh.3.104.5391 Having heard the words of the gods, Agastya, the son of Mitra, and Varuna, said, Wherefore are ye come?
Mbh.3.105.5401 SECTION CV Lomasa said, That blessed saint, the son of Varuna, having reached the sea spake unto the assembled gods, and the saints gathered together, saying I surely am going to drink up the ocean, that abode of the god of waters.
Mbh.3.105.5403 Having spoken these few words, the unswerving offspring of Mitra and Varuna, full of wrath, began to drink up the sea, while all the worlds stood observing the deed.
Mbh.3.107.5494 And that same abode of Varuna namely the ocean, being thus, excavated by the united sons of Sagara and rent and cut on all sides round, was placed in a condition of the utmost distress.
Mbh.3.107.5497 Thus they went on digging the ocean, which was the abode of Varuna and an exceedingly long space of time expired in this work, but still the horse was not found.
Mbh.3.109.5630 And the protector of men Bhagiratha accompanied by Ganga reached the sea; and the sea, the abode of Varuna, was quickly filled.
Mbh.3.115.5948 Thus having given his word, O king, he went and said to Varuna, Give me a thousand fleet steeds brown in colour, and each with one black ear.
Mbh.3.115.5950 To him Varuna forthwith gave a thousand steeds.
Mbh.3.125.6386 Here the creative and the dispensing deity, and Varuna also rose upwards, and here too they dwelt, O king!
Mbh.3.134.6833 O Janaka, I am the son of king Varuna.
Mbh.3.134.6851 If his father be really Varuna, let him be drowned in the sea'
Mbh.3.134.6856 Lomasa said, Then rose before Janaka all the Brahmanas, after having been duly worshipped by the magnanimous Varuna.
Mbh.3.139.7081 May king Varuna and Yama, conqueror of battles, and Ganga, and Yamuna, and this mountain, and the Maruts and the twin Aswins, and all rivers and lakes, vouchsafe thy safety.
Mbh.3.162.8222 And king Varuna protects all creatures, abiding in this king of mountains, and also in the vast deep.
Mbh.3.163.8271 And Arjuna, having dwelt for five years in the abode of him of a thousand eyes, and having from that lord of celestials obtained all the celestial weapons, such as those of Agni, of Varuna, of Soma, of Vayu, of Vishnu, of Indra, of Pasupati, of Brahma, of Parameshthi, of Prajapati, of Yama, of Dhata, of Savita, of Tvashta, and of Vaisravana; and having bowed down to and gone round him of a hundred sacrifices, and taken his Indra's permission, cheerfully came to the Gandhamadana
Mbh.3.166.8348 Then taking Sthunakarna, and Varuna and Salava, and Asmavarsha weapons, I assailed him, profusely showering shafts.
Mbh.3.167.8393 And I saw Yama seated on the south and Varuna and the lord of the celestials at their respective regions.
Mbh.3.167.8415 Do thou, O Bharata, repairing unto my abode learn all the weapons of Vayu, of Agni, of the Vasus, of Varuna, of the Marutas, of the Siddhas, of Brahma, of the Gandharvas of the Uragas, of the Rakshasas, of Vishnu and of the Nairitas; and also all the weapons that are with me, O perpetuator of the Kuru race'
Mbh.3.191.9766 By transgressing the practices of Brahmanas and Kshatriyas, subject not thyself, O king, to death by means of the terrible noose of Varuna'
Mbh.3.200.10317 And, O lord, Indra and Soma and Agni and Varuna, indeed all the gods, the Asuras and the great Snakes all wait upon thee with humility, adoring thee with various hymns!
Mbh.3.223.11279 And he also saw that the abode of Varuna had become blood-red.
Mbh.3.230.11614 And Varuna, the adorable lord of waters with his terrible Pasa and surrounded by numerous aquatic animals, marched slowly with the trident.
Mbh.3.231.11792 And while my husbands were engaged in the pursuit of virtue, I only supervised their treasury inexhaustible like the ever-filled receptacle of Varuna.
Mbh.3.252.12457 And, having come to the quarter of Varuna, he made all the Yavana and Varvara kings pay tribute.
Mbh.3.263.12876 Methinks thou art a goddess, or a Yakshi, or a Danavi, or an excellent Apsara, or the wife of a Daitya, or a daughter of the Naga king, or a Rakshasi or the wife of Varuna, or of Yama, or of Soma, or of Kuvera, who, having assumed a human form, wanderest in these forests.
Mbh.3.289.14098 And Sakra and Agni and Vayu, and Yama and Varuna and the illustrious Lord of the Yakshas, and the holy Rishis, and king Dasaratha also in a celestial and effulgent form and on car drawn by swans, showed themselves.
Mbh.3.289.14113 And Varuna then said, O son of Raghu, the humours in every creature's body derive their existence from me!
Mbh.3.306.15020 And, O son, may all that come across thee have their hearts divested of hostility towards thee: And may that lord of waters, Varuna.
Mbh.4.9.351 Or art thou Alamvusha, or Misrakesi, Pundarika, or Malini, or the queen of Indra, or of Varuna?
Mbh.4.43.1645 And after that Varuna held it for a hundred years.
Mbh.4.43.1649 Partha obtained this beautiful bow from Varuna.
Mbh.4.45.1760 Trained in arms by the preceptor Drona, by Sakra, and Vaisravana, and Yama, and Varuna, and Agni, and Kripa, and Krishna of Madhu's race, and by the wielder of the Pinaka Siva, why shall I not fight with these?
Mbh.4.56.2165 And there shone in a splendid array, each in its proper place the cars of Agni and Isa and Soma and Varuna and Prajapati and Dhatri and Vidhatri and Kuvera and Yama, and Alamvusha and Ugrasena and others, and of the Gandharva Tumburu.
Mbh.4.61.2399 I have obtained from Rudra the Raudra, from Varuna the Varuna from Agni the Agneya, from the god of Wind the Vayava, and from Sakra the thunderbolt and other weapons.
Mbh.4.63.2470 And those illustrious warriors ranged on the field of battle, using the celestials weapons obtained from Prajapati and Indra, and Agni and the fierce Rudra, and Kuvera, and Varuna, and Yama, and Vayu.
Mbh.5.16.738 Salya continued, While that best of Angira's race was thus speaking, there came that guardian of the world, Kuvera, and also Yama the son of Surya, and the old god Soma, and Varuna.
Mbh.5.16.751 Salya continued, Thus did the illustrious lord Indra, the chastiser of Paka, the giver of boons, bestow, after deliberation upon Kuvera the sovereignty over the Yakshas, and all the wealth of the world; upon Yama, the sovereignty over the Pitris; and upon Varuna, that over the waters'
Mbh.5.18.782 And the illustrious Agni, and the great saint Vrihaspati, and Yama, and Varuna, and Kuvera, the lord of riches, accompanied him.
Mbh.5.60.3282 Endued with energy and well-versed in the use of weapons, those tigers among men, the sons of Pritha, when united with the celestials, will be incapable of being even gazed upon by human warriors, He who hath the irresistible, excellent and celestial Gandiva for his bow, he who hath a couple of celestial quivers obtained from Varuna, large, full of shafts, and inexhaustible, he on whose banner, that is unobstructed like smoke in its action, is stationed the monkey-image of celestial origin, whose car is unequalled on the earth girt by the four seas, and the rattle of which as heard by men is like the roar of the clouds, and which like the rolling of the thunder frightens the foe; he whom the whole world regards as superhuman in energy; he whom all the kings of the earth know to be the vanquisher of the very gods in battle; he that taketh up five hundred arrows at a time and in the twinkling of the eye, shooteth them, unseen by other, to a great distance; that son of Pritha and tiger among car-warriors and chastiser of foes, whom Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Drona's son and Salya, the king of the Madras, and in fact, all impartial persons, regard as incapable of being vanquished by even earthly kings of superhuman prowess, when ready for fight who shooteth at one stretch full five hundred arrows, and who is equal unto Kartavirya in strength of arms; that great bowman, Arjuna, equal unto Indra or Upendra in prowess, I behold that great warrior committing a great havoc in this terrible battle.
Mbh.5.98.4634 SECTION XCVIII Kanwa said, When Matali was wending his way, he saw the great Rishi Narada proceeding at his pleasure to pay a visit to Varuna the god of the waters.
Mbh.5.98.4643 And both of them skilful in business, informed Varuna of their purpose, and obtaining his leave they began to wander in that region of the Nagas.
Mbh.5.98.4645 And Narada said, Thou hast, O charioteer, seen Varuna surrounded by his sons and grandsons.
Mbh.5.98.4648 The son, endued with great wisdom, of Varuna, the Lord of the Ocean, is even much distinguished for his conduct and disposition and for his holiness.
Mbh.5.100.4702 They were incapable of being vanquished by Sakra or any other celestial, that is, by either Yama, or Varuna, or the Lord of treasures Kuvera.
Mbh.5.102.4755 That illustrious cow, O Matali, of universal form, who supporteth the western quarter ruled by Varuna is known by the name of Subhadra.
Mbh.5.108.4993 It was here that Varuna first repaired to the nether regions, and attained to all his prosperity.
Mbh.5.110.5040 SECTION CX Garuda said, This quarter is the favourite one of king Varuna, the ruler of the ocean.
Mbh.5.110.5043 For ruling over all aquatic creatures and for the protection of the water themselves, illustrious and divine Kasyapa installed Varuna here as the king of this region.
Mbh.5.110.5044 Quaffing all the six juices of Varuna, the moon, the dispeller of darkness, becometh young again in the beginning of the fortnight.
Mbh.5.110.5060 Here, in the abode of Varuna, are the waters of the three worlds.
Mbh.5.117.5285 And the royal sage then sported with her, as Surya with Prabhavati, Agni with Swaha, Vasava with Sachi, Chandra with Rohini, Yama with Urmila, Varuna with Gauri, Kuvera with Riddhi, Narayana with Lakshmi, Sagara with Jahnavi, Rudra with Rudrani, the Grandsire with Saraswati, Vasishtha's son Saktri with Adrisyanti, Vasishtha with Arundhati called also Akshamala, Chyavana with Sukanya, Pulastya with Sandhya, Agastya with the princess of Vidarbha Lopamudra, Satyavan with Savitri, Bhrigu with Puloma, Kasyapa with Aditi, Richika's son Jamadagni with Renuka, Kusika's son Viswamitra with Himavati, Vrihaspati with Tara, Sukra with Sataprava, Bhumipati with Bhumi, Pururavas with Urvasi, Richika with Satyavati, Manu with Saraswati, Dushyanta with Sakuntala, the eternal Dharma with Dhriti, Nala with Damayanti, Narada, with Satyavati, Jaratkaru with Jaratkaru, Pulastya with Pratichya, Urnayus with Menaka, Tumvuru with Rambha, Vasuki with Satasirsha, Dhananjaya with Kamari, Rama with the princess of Videha Sita, or Janardana with Rukmini.
Mbh.5.128.5680 Thinking so, the Lord of all creatures, Parameshthin, commanded Dharma, saying, Binding fast, the Daityas and the Danavas, make them over to Varuna'
Mbh.5.128.5681 Thus addressed, Dharma, at the command of Parameshthin, binding the Daityas and the Danavas, made them over to Varuna.
Mbh.5.128.5682 And Varuna, the Lord of the waters, having bound those Danavas, with Dharma's noose, as also with his own, keepeth them within the depths of the ocean, always guarding them carefully.
Mbh.5.130.5811 Of immeasurable might, he vanquished king Varuna and also Pavaka Agni, and on the occasion of bringing down from the celestial regions the heavenly flower called Parijata, he defeated the lord of Sachi himself.
Mbh.5.159.7026 There were three celestial bows owned by the denizens of heaven, viz, Gandiva owned by Varuna, the bow called Vijaya owned by Indra, and that other celestial bow of great energy said to have been owned by Vishnu.
Mbh.5.159.7056 Having paid my respects, for battle's sake, to Rudra, Sakra, Vaisravana, Yama, Varuna, Pavaka, Kripa, Drona, and Madhava, and wielding that tough celestial bow of great energy called Gandiva, and accoutred with inexhaustible arrows and armed with celestial weapons, how can a person like me, O tiger among men, say, even unto Indra armed with the thunderbolt, such words as I am afraid,
Mbh.5.170.7713 Dhananjaya himself is the warrior who fighteth from it; his, again, is that celestial bow called Gandiva; he owneth again those steeds fleet as the wind; his coat of mail is impenetrable and of celestial make; his two large quivers are inexhaustible; his arms have been obtained from the great Indra, Rudra, Kuvera, Yama and Varuna; and upon his car, again, are those maces of frightful mien, and diverse other great weapons having the thunderbolt amongst them!
Mbh.5.183.8256 Then I applied, with proper mantras, the weapon called Agneya but the lord Rama neutralised that weapon of mine by one of his called Varuna.
Mbh.6.9.498 Aryans and Mlecchas, O Kauravya, and many races, O lord, mixed of the two elements, drink the waters of the following rivers, viz, magnificent Ganga, Sindhu, and Saraswati; of Godavari, and Narmada, and the large river called Yamuna; of Dhrishadwati, and Vipapa, and Vipasa and Sthulavaluka; of the river Vetravati, and that other one called Krishna-vena; of Iravati, and Vitasta, and Payosyini, and Devika; of Vedasmrita and Vedavati, and Tridiva, and Ikshumalavi of Karishini, and Chitravaha, and the river called Chitrasena; of Gomati, and Dhutapada and the large river called Gandaki, of Kausiki, and Nischitra, and Kirtya, and Nichita, and Lohatarini of Rashasi and Satakumbha, and also Sarayu; of Charmanwati, and Vetravati and Hastisoma, and Disa; of the river called Saravati, and Venna, and Bhimarathi; of Kaveri, and Chuluka, and Vina, and Satavala; of Nivara, and Mahila, and Suprayoga, O king; of Pavitra, and Kundala, and Rajani, and Puramalini; of Purvabhirama, and Vira, and Bhima, and Oghavati; of Palasini, and Papahara, and Mahendra, and Patalavati, of Karishini, and Asikni, and the large river Kusachira: of Makari, and Pravara, and Mena, and Hema, and Dhritavati; of Puravati, and Anushna, and Saivya, and Kapi, O Bharata; of Sadanira, and Adhrishya, and the mighty stream Kusadhara; of Sadakanta, and Siva, and Viravati; of Vatsu, and Suvastu, and Kampana with Hiranwati; of Vara, and the mighty river Panchami, of Rathachitra, and Jyotiratha, and Viswamitra, and Kapinjala; of Upendra, and Vahula, and Kuchira, and Madhuvahini: of Vinadi, and Pinjala, and Vena, and the great river Pungavena; of Vidisa and Krishna-vena, and Tamra, and Kapila, of Salu, and Suvama, the Vedaswa, and the mighty river Harisrava; of Sighra, and Pischala, and the river Bharadwaji, of the river Kausiki, and Sona, and Chandrama; of Durgamantrasila, and Brahma-vodhya, and Vrihadvati; of Yaksha, and Rohi, and Yamvunadi; of Sunasa and Tamasa, and Dasi, and Vasa, and Varuna, and Asi; of Nila, and Dhrimati, and the mighty river Parnasa; of Pomasi, and Vrishabha, and Brahma-meddhya, and Vrihaddhani.
Mbh.6.34.1603 I am Ananta among Nagas, I am Varuna among acquatic beings, I am Aryaman among the Pitris, and Yama among those that judge and punish
Mbh.6.35.1691 Thou art Vayu, Yama, Agni, Varuna, Moon, Prajapati, and Grandsire.
Mbh.6.50.2602 Enraged Yama himself, or He armed with the thunder, or even Varuna noose in hand, or Kuvera armed with mace, may be vanquished in battle but the mighty car-warrior Bhishma, of great energy is incapable of being vanquished.
Mbh.6.84.4424 Having vanquished in battle that hero of great valour and renowned prowess, who, O king, cannot be vanquished in battle by Yama himself or Varuna, king Bhagadatta with his elephant began to crush down the troops of the Pandavas like a wild elephant.
Mbh.6.86.4539 And then he took up another weapon, viz, the fierce Varuna weapon for baffling those fiery weapons of Salya.
Mbh.6.86.4540 Then the celestials staying in the firmament, and the kings of the earth also, all beheld Salya's weapons baffled by that Varuna weapon of Sikhandin.
Mbh.6.108.5760 Indeed, the angry Yama is capable of being vanquished, or even the chief of the celestials armed with the thunder, or Varuna himself, noose in hand, or the Lord of the Yakshas armed with mace.
Mbh.6.108.5857 The wielder of the thunder-bolt may be vanquished or Varuna, or Yama.
Mbh.6.113.6189 O son, he is, in battle, equal to Yama or Varuna himself
Mbh.6.123.6834 The weapons appertaining to Agni, Varuna, Soma, Vayu, and Vishnu, as also those appertaining to Indra, Pasupati, and Paramesthi, and those of Prajapati, Dhatri, Tashtri, Savitri, and Vivaswat, all these are known to Dhananjaya alone in this world of men!
