MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.7.1.38 Even thus was he classed during the counting of Rathas and Atirathas, he that is the foremost of all Rathas and Atirathas, he that is respected by all heroes, he that would venture to fight even with Yama, Kuvera, Varuna, and Indra.
Mbh.7.6.188 As Kapali amongst the Rudras, Pavaka among the Vasus, Kuvera among the Yakshas, Vasava among the Maruts, Vasishtha among Brahmanas, the Sun amongst luminous bodies, Yama among the Pitris, Varuna among aquatic creatures, as the Moon among the stars, and Usanas among the sons of Diti, so art thou the foremost of all leaders of forces.
Mbh.7.10.377 The foremost among the Panchalas, possessed of heroism, high-born and the favourite of all high-born heroes, ever achieving good deeds in battle, viz, Uttamaujas, that Prince ever engaged in the welfare of Arjuna, born for only my evil, equal unto Yama, or Vaisaravana, or Aditya, or Mahendra, or Varuna, that prince regarded as a mighty car-warrior and prepared to lay down his life in the thick of battle, O, what heroes of my army surrounded him?
Mbh.7.11.415 In days of old, penetrating into the very sea, he vanquished in battle Varuna himself in those watery depths, surrounded by all kinds of aquatic animals.
Mbh.7.70.3038 Without doubt, Yama and Varuna and Satakratu and Kuvera, obtaining thee as a favourite guest, are making much of thy heroic self.
Mbh.7.74.3237 Men will behold in tomorrow's battle those weapons which I have obtained from Yama and Kaurva and Varuna and Indra and Rudra!
Mbh.7.82.3624 Mounted on that best of cars with those two friends, that slayer of large bodies of foes, viz, Partha, proceeded for achieving the slaughter of the ruler of the Sindhus, like Soma rising in the firmament with Budha and Sukra, for destroying the gloom of night, or like Indra proceeding with Varuna and Surya to the great battle with the Asuras occasioned by the abduction of Taraka the wife of Vrihaspati.
Mbh.7.86.3798 Then, like the Destroyer himself in wrath, or Vasava himself armed with the thunder, or Death's irresistible self armed with his club and urged on by Time, or Mahadeva armed with the trident and incapable of being ruffled, or Varuna bearing his noise, or the blazing fire at the end of the Yuga risen for consuming the creation, the slayer of the Nivatakavachas inflamed with rage and swelling with might, the ever-victorious Jaya, devoted to truth and desirous of achieving his great vow, clad in mail and armed with sword, decked in golden diadem, adorned with garlands of swords of white flowers and attired in white robes, his arms decked with beautiful Angadas and ears with excellent ear-rings, mounted on his own foremost of cars, the incarnate Nara, accompanied by Narayana, shaking his Gandiva in battle, shone brilliantly like the risen sun.
Mbh.7.89.3983 The heroic king Srutayudha was the son of Varuna, having for his mother that mighty river of cool water called Parnasa.
Mbh.7.89.3984 His mother, O king, had for the sake of her son, begged Varuna saying, Let this my son become unslayable on earth'
Mbh.7.89.3985 Varuna, gratified with her, had said, I give him a boon highly beneficial to him, viz, a celestial weapon, by virtue of which this thy son will become unslayable on earth by foes.
Mbh.7.89.3990 Having said these words, Varuna gave him, with mantras, a mace.
Mbh.7.89.4001 And Srutayudha perished on the field, even in the manner that Varuna had indicated.
Mbh.7.95.4389 Beholding that terrible foe-slaughtering Agneya weapon, Satyaki, that mighty bowman, invoked another celestial weapon, viz, the Varuna.
Mbh.7.95.4392 Then the Varuna and the Agneya weapons which had thus been grafted on their shafts coming against each other became fruitless
Mbh.7.124.6127 SECTION CXXVI Bhima said, That car which formerly bore Brahma and Isana and Indra and Varuna to battle, mounting upon that car, have two Krishnas gone.
Mbh.7.142.7273 Then Arjuna, frightening the Dhartarashtras, invoked into existence the Varuna weapon on all sides.
Mbh.7.152.7994 Then thy sons, all equal unto the sons of Varuna, filled with rage and accompanied by the illustrious Preceptor and a large number of cars, foot-soldiers, and elephants encompassed Vrikodara on all sides from desire of fight.
Mbh.7.154.8257 Seeing his weapon baffled, the son of Bharadwaja, filled with great wrath and desirous of slaying the son of Pandu, sped at Yudhishthira diverse celestial weapons such as the Varuna, the Yamya, the Agneya, the Tvashtra, and the Savitra.
Mbh.7.178.9708 Neither Vasava, nor Varuna the lord of the waters, nor Yama, could venture to approach him.
Mbh.7.192.10653 SECTION CXCV Dhritarashtra said, Hearing, O Sanjaya, of the slaughter, by unrighteous means, of his aged sire, by Dhrishtadyumna, what, did the valiant Aswatthaman say, he, that is, in whom human and Varuna and Agneya and Brahma and Aindra and Narayana weapons are always present?
Mbh.7.198.11057 SECTION CCI Sanjaya said, Beholding Bhimasena overwhelmed by that weapon, Dhananjaya, for baffling its energy, covered him with the Varuna weapon.
Mbh.7.198.11058 In consequence of the lightness of Arjuna's arms, and owing also to the fiery force that shrouded Bhima, none could see that the latter had been covered with the Varuna weapon.
Mbh.7.198.11066 The fire of that weapon consumed them not, in consequence of their having laid aside their weapons, as also in consequence of the force of the Varuna weapon, and owing also to the energy possessed by themselves.
Mbh.7.198.11294 Everything that is done for propitiating Indra, and Yama, and Varuna, and Kuvera and Pitris and Tvashtri, and Soma, is really offered to thee.
Mbh.7.199.11466 He is the Moon, he is Isana, he is Surya, he is Varuna.
Mbh.7.199.11518 And since, afflicting Brahma and Indra and Varuna and Yama and Kuvera, he destroyeth them ultimately, he is for that reason called Hara.
Mbh.8.37.1973 If Yama, Varuna, Kuvera, and Vasava, with all their followers coming hither, unitedly protect the son of Pandu in this great battle, what need of many words, I will still vanquish him with them
Mbh.8.42.2311 Know this, O Shalya, that I would not take fright at Yama himself armed with his rod, or Varuna himself armed with his noose, or Kuvera himself armed with his mace, or Vasava himself armed with the thunderbolt, or at any other foe whatever that may approach for slaying me.
Mbh.8.45.2465 The West is protected by the mighty Varuna who overlooks the other gods there.
Mbh.8.46.2542 That car for which the Leader of the universe, viz, Agni, who derives his effulgence from Brahman, became the steeds, that car which was known amongst the gods as belonging to Brahman because it sprang first from Brahman himself, that car which in days of old had successively borne Brahman and Ishana and Indra and Varuna one after another, riding on that primeval car, Keshava and Arjuna now proceeded to battle.
Mbh.8.46.2588 Shalya said, Who is there that would slay Varuna with water, or quench fire with fuel?
Mbh.8.87.5301 The celestials, however, with the pitris, and with all that were numbered with them as also with their followers, and Yama and Vaishravana and Varuna were on the side of Arjuna.
Mbh.8.87.5366 Decked with rows of little bells, hard as iron, and resembling the fatal noose in the hands of Yama or Varuna, the elephant's rope, filled with wrath, closed with the Ape.
Mbh.8.91.5816 Karna, however, quenched that conflagration with the Varuna weapon.
Mbh.9.43.3101 The Grandsire of the worlds, Brahman, and Kasyapa of great energy, and the others mentioned and not mentioned, all poured water upon Skanda even as, O monarch, the gods had poured water on the head of Varuna, the lord of waters, for investing him with dominion.
Mbh.9.43.3124 Varuna, firmly adhering to truth, gave him Ghasa and Atighasa of great might and possessed of mouths like those of whales.
Mbh.9.44.3245 Possessed of great strength, some amongst them partook of the nature of Yama, some of Rudra, some of Soma, some of Kuvera, some of Varuna, some of Indra, and some of Agni, O scorcher of foes.
Mbh.9.44.3271 The royal Varuna gave him a snake of great energy and might.
Mbh.9.44.3345 That other tirtha, O bull of Bharata's race, where in days of yore Varuna the lord of waters had been installed by the celestials, is known by the name of Taijasa.
Mbh.9.45.3357 In days of yore, in the Krita age, O king, all celestials, duly approaching Varuna, said unto him these words, As Shakra, the Lord of the celestials, always protects us from every fear, similarly be thou the Lord of all the rivers!
Mbh.9.45.3361 Thus addressed Varuna answered them, saying, Let it be so'
Mbh.9.45.3362 All the celestials then, assembling together, made Varuna having his abode in the ocean the Lord of all the waters, according to the rites laid down in the scriptures.
Mbh.9.45.3363 Having installed Varuna as the Lord of all aquatic creatures and worshipping him duly, the celestials returned to their respective abodes.
Mbh.9.45.3364 Installed by the celestials, the illustrious Varuna began to duly protect seas and lakes and rivers and other reservoirs of water as Shakra protects the gods.
Mbh.9.47.3505 Endued with great effulgence, Varuna, the highly blessed son of Aditi, had in days of yore performed in that tirtha the Rajasuya sacrifice, O lord of Earth!
Mbh.9.47.3506 Having in battle subjugated both men and celestials and Gandharvas and Rakshasas, Varuna, O king, that slayer of hostile heroes, performed his grand sacrifice in that tirtha.
Mbh.9.47.3508 After the completion of that foremost of sacrifices, the Rajasuya of Varuna, a terrible battle, O Janamejaya, ensued amongst the Kshatriyas.
Mbh.9.53.3829 Both were endued with great strength, both resembled Varuna in achievements.
Mbh.12.5.190 In consequence of a Brahmana's curse, as also of the curse of the illustrious Rama, of the boon granted to Kunti and the illusion practised on him by Indra, of his depreciation by Bhishma as only half a car-warrior, at the tale of Rathas and Atirathas, of the destruction of his energy caused by Salya with his keen speeches, of Vasudeva's policy, and, lastly of the celestial weapons obtained by Arjuna from Rudra and Indra and Yama and Varuna and Kuvera and Drona and the illustrious Kripa, the wielder of Gandiva succeeded in slaying Vikartana's son Karna of effulgence like that of Surya himself.
Mbh.12.15.616 Rudra, Skanda, Sakra, Agni, Varuna, are all slaughterers.
Mbh.12.29.1378 The gods with Indra and Varuna and Vrihaspati at their head came to sacrifice, called Viswasrij, performed by that high-souled monarch
Mbh.12.90.5173 This is the way in which Vasava, and Yama, and Varuna, and all the great royal sages have acted.
Mbh.12.94.5322 Though enmeshed in the noose of Varuna, he still regards himself immortal.
Mbh.12.121.6903 The puissant Varuna was installed into the sovereignty of the waters and the Asuras.
Mbh.12.121.6926 At the top of the scale, the divine Indra is awake with the rod of chastisement; after him, Agni of blazing flames; after him, Varuna; after Varuna, Prajapati; after Prajapati, Righteousness whose essence consists of restraint after Righteousness the son of Brahman, viz, the eternal Law; after Law, Energy is awake, employed in the act of protection; after Energy, the herbs offered in sacrifices for supporting the gods and used as food and medicines; after the herbs, the mountains; after the mountains, all kinds of juices and their attributes; after these, the goddess Niriti; after Niriti, the planets and the luminous bodies in heaven; after these, the Vedas; after the Vedas, the puissant form of Vishnu with equine head; after him, the almighty and eternal Grandsire, viz, Brahman; after the Grandsire, the divine and blessed Mahadeva; after Mahadeva, the Viswedevas; after them, the great Rishis; after the Rishis the divine Soma; after Soma, the deities who are all eternal; after the deities, know that the Brahmanas are awake.
Mbh.12.206.12516 He then created Varuna the lord of waters and governor of all aquatic animals.
Mbh.12.222.13452 He was Varuna.
Mbh.12.226.13929 Sakra said, Beholding this upraised arm of mine, equipped with the thunderbolt, and those nooses of Varuna, who is there whose understanding would not be agitated, including the very Destroyer himself that compasses the death of all beings?
Mbh.12.226.13975 These nooses of Varuna, with which thou hast been bound, will loosen Time's course in consequence of the misconduct of men.

Mbh.12.300.18849 The high-souled Yogin, possessed of greatness, can enter into and come out of, at his will, Brahma himself who is the lord of all deities, and the boon-giving Vishnu, and Bhava, and Dharma, and the six-faced Kartikeya, and the spiritual sons of Brahmana, the quality of Darkness that is productive of much pain, and that of Passion, and that of Sattwa which is pure, and Prakriti which is the highest, and the goddess Siddhi who is the spouse of Varuna, and all kinds of energy, and all enduring patience, and the bright lord of stars in the firmament with the stars twinkling all around, and the Viswas.
Mbh.12.318.19823 What is Varuna?
Mbh.12.318.19849 Similarly, Mitra is Purusha, and Varuna is Prakriti

Mbh.13.18.2881 Vishnu said, O Great King, Aditya, Chandra, Wind, Fire, Heaven, Earth, the Vasus, the Viswedevas, Dhatri, Aryyaman, Sukra, Vrihaspati, the Rudras, the Saddhyas, Varuna, Brahma, Sakra, Maruts, the Upanishads that deal with knowledge of Brahman, Truth, the Vedas, the Sacrifices, Sacrificial Presents, Brahmanas reciting the Vedas, Soma, Sacrificer, the shares of the deities in sacrificial offerings or clarified butter poured in sacrifices, Raksha, Diksha, all kinds of restraints in the form of vows and fasts and rigid observances, Swaha, Vashat, the Brahmanas, the celestial cow, the foremost acts of righteousness, the wheel of Time, Strength, Fame, Self-restraint, the Steadiness of all persons endued with intelligence, all acts of goodness and the reverse, the seven Rishis, Understanding of the foremost order, all kinds of excellent touch, the success of all religious acts, the diverse tribes of the deities, those beings that drink heat, those that are drinkers of Soma, Clouds, Suyamas, Rishitas, all creatures having Mantras for their bodies, Abhasuras, those beings that live upon scents only, those that live upon vision only, those that restrain their speech, those that restrain their minds, those that are pure, those that are capable of assuming diverse forms through Yoga-puissance, those deities that live on touch as their food, those deities that subsist on vision and those that subsist upon the butter poured in sacrifices, those beings that are competent to create by fiats of their will the objects they require, they that are regarded as the foremost ones among the deities, and all the other deities, O descendant of Ajamila, the Suparnas, the Gandharvas, the Pisachas, the Danavas, Yakshas, the Charanas, the snakes, all that is gross and all that is exceedingly subtile, all that is soft and all that is not subtile, all sorrows and all joys, all sorrows that come after joy and all joy that comes after sorrow, the Sankhya philosophy, Yoga, and that which transcends objects which are regarded as foremost and very superior, all adorable things, all the deities, and all the protectors of the universe who entering into the physical forces sustain and uphold this ancient creation of that illustrious Deity, have sprung from that Creator of all creatures.
Mbh.13.31.3923 I worship the Brahmanas, O puissant one, who constantly worship Varuna and Vayu and Aditya and Parjanya and the deity of Fire, and Sthanu and Skanda and Lakshmi and Vishnu and the Brahmanas, and the lord of speech, and Chandramas, and the Waters and Earth and the goddess Saraswati.
Mbh.13.62.6036 Aditya and Varuna and Vishnu and Brahman and Soma and Hutasana, and the illustrious and trident-bearing Mahadeva, all applaud the man that makes a gift of earth.
Mbh.13.62.6056 That man who having promised to make a gift of earth does not actually make it, or who having made a gift takes it back, has to pass a long time, in great misery in consequence of being tied with the noose of Varuna at the command of Death.
Mbh.13.79.7141 By giving away a cow of the complexion of the foam of water, with a calf and a vessel of white brass for milking her, and covered with a piece of cloth, one attains to the region of Varuna.
Mbh.13.81.7262 In affluence the royal Varuna is regarded as pre-eminent.
Mbh.13.81.7263 The giver of kine attains to affluence like that of Varuna himself.
Mbh.13.82.7319 The deities, viz, Indra, Vivaswat, Soma, Vishnu, Varuna, and Agni, having obtained me, are sporting in joy and will do so for ever.
Mbh.13.84.7534 The goat is Fire for it given, it leads to the region of the deity of fire; the sheep is Varuna for if leads to the region of Varuna the lord of waters; the horse is Surya for if leads to the region of Surya; elephants are Nagas for they lead to the world of Nagas; buffaloes are Asuras for they lead to the region of Asuras; cocks and boars are Rakshasas for they lead to the regions of the Rakshasas, O delighter of the Bhrigus; earth is sacrifice, kine, water, and Soma for it leads to the merits of sacrifice, and to the region of kine, of the lord of waters and of Soma.
Mbh.13.85.7752 To a sacrifice performed in days of yore by that foremost of gods, viz, Lord Rudra, O thou of great might, who on that occasion had assumed the form of Varuna, there came the Munis and all the deities with Agni at their head.
Mbh.13.85.7765 Even He is Brahman and Siva and Rudra and Varuna and Agni and Prajapati.
Mbh.13.85.7768 Verily, beholding that sacrifice of the high-souled Mahadeva who had assumed the form of Varuna, all of them became highly pleased.
Mbh.13.85.7810 After all these births had taken place, Mahadeva who had assumed the form of Varuna for his sacrifice and who had Pavana for his soul, said, This excellent Sacrifice is mine.
Mbh.13.85.7819 Mahadeva in the form of Varuna is in error in respect of this matter
Mbh.13.85.7827 O sire, let Agni of blazing flames, and the illustrious and puissant Mahadeva who has, for this sacrifice, assumed the form of Varuna, have their wish in the matter of the offspring'
Mbh.13.85.7828 At these words, although born of Brahman, the puissant Mahadeva in the form of Varuna, the ruler of all aquatic creatures received the firstborn one, viz, Bhrigu endued with the effulgence of the sun as his own child.
Mbh.13.85.7841 They are also called Varunas in consequence of their ancestor Bhrigu having been adopted by Mahadeva in the form of Varuna.
Mbh.13.85.7856 The puissant and supreme Lord Mahadeva in the form of Varuna which he had assumed for his sacrifice had first, O learned Brahmana, adopted both Kavi and Angiras.
Mbh.13.85.7857 Hence, these two are regarded as of Varuna.
Mbh.13.85.7879 Even this is what happened in days of old in that sacrifice of the high-souled Mahadeva, that foremost one of all the deities, in the beginning of creation, when he for the purposes of his sacrifice had assumed the form of Varuna.
Mbh.13.86.7958 Varuna gave him many auspicious and excellent, products of the Ocean, with some elephants.
Mbh.13.89.8055 By doing it under the constellation presided over by Varuna viz, Satabhisha, one attains to success as a physician.
Mbh.13.91.8172 Having first performed the Karana on the sacred fire with the aid of Mantras, O thou that art possessed of wealth of penances, one should always pour libations next unto the deity of fire, and Soma, and Varuna.
Mbh.13.91.8175 When water is being fetched for the Sraddha, the deity Varuna of great puissance should be praised.
Mbh.13.96.8719 He would transcend the simplicity that exists in Brahmanas, the stability that exists in the Earth, the mildness existing in the Moon, the gravity existing in Varuna, the effulgence existing in Agni, the brightness of Meru, and the heat of the sun, who would slay a suppliant for protection!
Mbh.13.97.8746 He should make sacrificial offerings in due order; to Yama in the Southern region, to Varuna in Western region, to Soma in the Northern region, to Prajapati within the homestead, to Dhanwantari in the North-eastern region, and to Indra in the Eastern region.
Mbh.13.102.9122 They constitute the abode of the high-souled king Varuna.
Mbh.13.107.9804 That man who having fasted for sixteen days eats a little ghee on the seventeenth day and bears himself in this way for a whole year, pouring libations every day on his sacred fire, proceeds to the regions of Varuna and Indra, and Rudra and the Maruts and Usanas and Brahman himself.
Mbh.13.142.11869 That man who, having lived in entire dependence upon his own self, observes for two and ten years the duties that appertain to Diksha, and at last casts off his body on the great ocean, succeeds in attaining to the regions of Varuna after death.
Mbh.13.146.12164 Varuna has Gauri for his spouse, and Surya has Suvarchala.

Mbh.13.150.12617 Dridheyu and Riteyu, and Pariyadha of great fame, and Ekata, and Dwita, and Trita, the last three endued with splendour like that of the sun, and Atri's son of righteous soul, viz, the Rishi Saraswata, these seven who had acted as Ritwiks in the great sacrifice of Varuna, have taken up their abodes in the western quarter.
Mbh.13.154.12884 It so happened, however, that the handsome Varuna had, from a long time before, coveted the girl.
Mbh.13.154.12885 Coming to the woods where Utathya dwelt, Varuna stole away the girl when she had plunged into the Yamuna for a bath.
Mbh.13.154.12889 There is no mansion that can be regarded more beautiful than that palace of Varuna.
Mbh.13.154.12893 Indeed, having heard all the facts from Narada, Utathya addressed' the celestial Rishi, saying, Go, O Narada, unto Varuna and speak with due severity unto him.
Mbh.13.154.12895 Thou mayst say to him further, Thou are a protector of the worlds, O Varuna, and not a destroyer!
Mbh.13.154.12897 Thus requested by Utathya, the celestial Rishi Narada repaired to where Varuna was and addressing him, said, Do thou set free the wife of Utathya.
Mbh.13.154.12899 Hearing these words of Narada, Varuna replied unto him, saying, This timid girl is exceedingly dear to me.
Mbh.13.154.12901 Receiving this reply, Narada repaired to Utathya and cheerlessly said, O great ascetic, Varuna has driven me out from his house, seizing me by the throat.
Mbh.13.154.12916 Conversant with every duty, the Rishi Utathya of great energy, after getting back his spouse, O king, said so unto Varuna, I have recovered my wife, O Lord of waters, with the aid of my penances and after inflicting such distress on thee as made thee cry aloud in anguish!
Mbh.13.158.13161 He it is who has caused the vital seed of the gods Mitra and Varuna to fall within a jar, whence sprang the Rishi known by the name of Vasishtha.
