MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.63.3053 And the god Vasava is worshipped in due form with such garlands and ornaments.
Mbh.1.88.4861 Yayati answered, O Vasava, I do not, in the matter of ascetic austerities, behold my equal among men, the celestials, the Gandharvas, and the great Rishis'
Mbh.1.94.5152 And in prowess he was like unto Vasava amongst the celestials.
Mbh.1.123.6625 Thus addressed by Vasava the king of the celestials, the virtuous king of the Kuru race, well-recollecting those words, said unto Kunti, O fortunate one, thy vow hath become successful.
Mbh.1.227.11120 And Vasava, the chief of the celestials soon covering the sky with masses of clouds of every kind began to shower upon the burning forest.
Mbh.1.229.11200 Know from my words, O Vasava, that Vasudeva and Arjuna are incapable of being vanquished in battle by any one!
Mbh.1.229.11205 Therefore, O Vasava, it behoveth thee to go hence with all the celestials.
Mbh.2.6.308 And who also upon Vasava, the Lord of the celestials and upon Yama, the son of Vivaswana?
Mbh.2.23.1057 And, O monarch, the mighty Bhima and Jarasandha fought terribly on in those lists, driving the crowd at times by the motions of their hands like Vritra and Vasava of old.
Mbh.2.24.1097 The car upon which Krishna rode had been obtained by king Vasu from Vasava, and from Vasu by Vrihadratha, and from the latter in due course by king Jarasandha.
Mbh.2.43.1726 Praise thou, O Bhishma, this Karna, the ruler of the territories of Anga and Vanga, who is equal in strength unto him of a thousand eyes, who draweth a large bow, who endued with mighty arms owneth celestial ear-rings of heavenly make with which he was born and this coat of mail possessing the splendour of the rising sun, who vanquished in a wrestling encounter the invincible Jarasandha equal unto Vasava himself, and who tore and mangled that monarch.
Mbh.2.49.2055 Indeed, Vidura knoweth with all its mysteries the science of political morality that the illustrious and learned and wise Vrihaspati, the celestial Rishi who is the spiritual guide of Vasava, had unfolded unto the wise chief of the immortals.
Mbh.3.9.449 The one that is the stronger of the pair is bearing his burthen of greater weight with ease, but, O Vasava, the other is lean, and weak and is a mass of veins and arteries!
Mbh.3.9.452 See, O Vasava, sore inflicted with the whip, and harassed exceedingly, he is unable to bear his burthen.
Mbh.3.12.715 Then a dreadful combat took place between Bhimasena and Hidimva, both skilled in all weapons and which was like unto the encounter of Vasava with Vritra.
Mbh.3.16.838 And, O monarch, the encounter between Charudeshna and Vivindhya was as fierce as that in days of yore between Vritra and Vasava!
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.3.36.1875 I think they are incapable of being vanquished even by gods led by Vasava himself.
Mbh.3.39.2095 That terrible conflict of blows, resembling the conflict of yore between Vritra and Vasava, lasted but for a moment.
Mbh.3.45.2338 SECTION XLV Vaisampayana said, One day, knowing that Arjuna's glances were cast upon Urvasi, Vasava, calling Chitrasena to himself, addressed him in private saying, O king of Gandharvas, I am pleased; go thou as my messenger to that foremost of Apsaras, Urvasi, and let her wait upon that tiger among men, Phalguna.
Mbh.3.45.2340 Thus addressed by Indra, the chief of the Gandharvas in obedience to that command of Vasava, soon went to Urvasi that foremost of Apsaras.
Mbh.3.47.2435 And he beheld the son of Pandu occupying half of the seat of Vasava.
Mbh.3.82.4067 By bathing there, one soon acquireth the region of Vasava, and his soul being cleansed from every sin, he attaineth to a high state of blessedness.
Mbh.3.85.4724 Thou who resemblest Vasava, thou wilt, O Bhishma, attain to the region of the Vasus, and also eternal fame on earth'
Mbh.3.92.4948 Who can be more fortunate than he who hath been favoured with thy company, who hath Dhananjaya for a brother, and who is thought of by Vasava himself?
Mbh.3.156.7882 Madri's son, Sahadeva, was speaking thus, when Bhimasena made his appearance, with a mace in his hand, like unto Vasava himself wielding the thunder-bolt.
Mbh.3.156.7920 Having slain Jatasura, Bhima presented himself before Yudhishthira, and the foremost Brahmanas began to eulogise him Bhima even as the Marutas eulogise Vasava
Mbh.3.159.8060 In Khandava thy high-souled brother, firm in promise, had baffled Gandharvas and Nagas and Vasava himself, and slain fierce Rakshasas, and also obtained the bow Gandiva.
Mbh.3.167.8446 Thereupon, that best of bestowers gladly offered unto me half of his seat; and Vasava also with regard touched my person.
Mbh.3.222.11250 Vasava addressed then that Asura saying, Why art thou bent on behaving insolently to this lady?
Mbh.3.222.11257 Vasava cut it up in its course with his thunderbolt.
Mbh.3.225.11380 Markandeya continued, The celestials having heard of the prowess of Skanda, all said to Vasava, O Sakra, do thou kill Skanda without delay for his prowess is unbearable.
Mbh.3.226.11405 O Partha, the mighty Vasava, the lord of the celestials, then uttered a loud shout, to encourage his warriors and marching rapidly with the view of killing Agnis' son and praised by Tridasas and great Rishis, he at length reached the abode of Kartikeya.
Mbh.3.229.11507 Being told by Skanda to speak it out, Vasava said, The lady Abhijit, the younger sister of Rohini, being jealous of her seniority, has repaired to the woods to perform austerities.
Mbh.3.235.11900 Surrounded by the Kurus, O king, like Yama by the Rudra, or Vasava by the Maruts, thou shinest, O monarch, like the Moon among the stars!
Mbh.3.286.13970 Slaying my enemies with all their army by means of thy keen-edged shafts, enhance my joy to-day, O son, as thou didst once before by vanquishing Vasava'
Mbh.3.300.14801 Then Radha's son, that slayer of hostile heroes, knowing all about the matter, and desirous of obtaining the dart, remained in expectation of Vasava
Mbh.3.308.15093 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words of Indra, Karna was filled with delight and seeing that his purpose was about to be accomplished he approached Vasava, and intent upon obtaining a dart incapable of being baffled, he addressed Indra, saying, Do thou, O Vasava, in exchange for my coat of mail and ear-rings, give me a dart incapable of being baffled, and competent to destroy hosts of enemies when arrayed in order of battle'
Mbh.3.308.15094 Thereupon, O ruler of earth, fixing his mind for a moment on the dart for bringing it there, Vasava thus spake unto Karna, Do thou give me thy ear-rings, and the coat of mail born with thy body, and in return take this dart on these terms!
Mbh.3.308.15114 And Karna cutting off the excellent mail from his person, gave it to Vasava, still dripping.
Mbh.4.49.1914 Aided by our troops arrayed in ranks, ourselves, great bowmen, standing carefully will fight with Arjuna even as the Danavas encounter Vasava in battle
Mbh.4.54.2068 And struck in battle by Partha, the son of Vasava, those well-dressed heroes among men, those givers of wealth endued with the energy of Vasava, defeated and deprived of life, began to measure their lengths on the ground, like full-grown Himalayan elephants clad in mails of black steel decked with gold.
Mbh.4.56.2163 And there appeared on the scene three and thirty gods with Vasava at their head, and many Gandharvas and Rakshasas and Nagas and Pitris, together with the great Rishis.
Mbh.4.58.2263 And the fierce and terrible encounter that took place between the illustrious Drona and Arjuna resembled that between Virata and Vasava of old.
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.4.59.2299 And they shot arrows at each other like Virata and Vasava.
Mbh.5.50.2878 He that is the refuge of the Pandavas, even as Vasava is of the celestials, with that Vasudeva, the Pandavas will fight against you.
Mbh.5.55.3056 Even Vasava himself is not capable of vanquishing my vast host.
Mbh.5.83.3964 It was at such a time that Janardana, the foremost of mighty persons, in enjoyment of excellent health, having heard the auspicious, sacred-sounding and sweet words of gratified Brahmanas, like Vasava himself hearing the adorations of the celestial Rishis, and having also gone through the customary acts and rites of the morning, purified himself by a bath, and decked his person with unguents and ornaments, worshipped both the Sun and Fire.
Mbh.5.83.3980 And Vasishtha and Vamadeva, and Bhuridyumna and Gaya, and Kratha and Sukra and Kusika and Bhrigu, and other Brahmarshis and celestial Rishis united together, all stood on the right side of Krishna, that delighter of the Yadavas, that younger brother of Vasava.
Mbh.5.90.4193 O Krishna, that Arjuna of two arms who always regardeth himself as superior to his namesake of old with thousand arms, and who at one stretch shooteth five hundred arrows, that son of Pandu who in the use of weapons is equal unto king Kartavirya, in energy unto Aditya, in restraint of senses unto a great sage, in forgiveness unto the Earth, and in prowess unto Indra himself, he, by whose prowess, O slayer of Madhu, the Kurus amongst all the kings of the earth have obtained this extensive empire, blazing with effulgence, he, whose strength of arms is always adored by the Pandavas, that son of Pandu, who is the foremost of all car-warriors and whose prowess is incapable of being frustrated, he, from an encounter with whom in battle no foe ever escapeth with life, he, O Achyuta, who is the conqueror of all, but who is incapable of being conquered by any, he, who is the refuge of the Pandavas like Vasava of the celestials, how, O Kesava, is that Dhananjaya now, that brother and friend of thine?
Mbh.5.91.4324 Indeed, from that food he first gave a portion, along with much wealth, unto a number of Brahmanas conversant with the Vedas, and then with his attendants, like Vasava in the midst of the Marutas, he dined on what remained of the clean and savoury food supplied by Vidura
Mbh.5.99.4685 Deprived of their prosperity by Vasava, it is here that many sinful Danavas live confined, defeated by him and afflicted by Time.
Mbh.5.104.4798 It has been seen in every battle that small is the difference that exists between him and Vasava as regards prowess and strength.
Mbh.5.104.4800 Vanquished by his management of the steeds, the enemies of the gods are subjugated by Vasava by the use of his hands.
Mbh.5.104.4808 Let Gunakesi, therefore be accepted by thee for thy grandson, like Sachi for Vasava who deserveth her.
Mbh.5.104.4830 Let Matali, and Narada, and Sumukha, O Vasava, all attain their cherished wish through thy grace'
Mbh.5.105.4840 And inflamed with great anger, that ranger of the firmament, Suparna, smiting the three worlds by the hurricane caused by the flappings of his wings, quickly came to Vasava.
Mbh.5.105.4847 Dost thou sport thus, O Vasava, as thou listest?
Mbh.5.105.4849 That will, I think, gratify thee, O Vasava!
Mbh.5.105.4852 O monarch of the three worlds, Vishnu, however, is not the only cause of my inferiority, for though, O Vasava, I am quite thy equal, yet the sovereignty of the three worlds resteth on thee, O chief of the celestials.
Mbh.5.105.4863 When, however, disregarding me thou hast interfered with my foods, thou hast, O Vasava, inflicted disgrace on me, like this younger brother of thine that had hitherto been disgracing me by making me bear him on my back.
Mbh.5.111.5072 Except by Nara and Narayana, he is incapable of being seen by the diverse classes of Munis, the gods with Vasava at their head, the Gandharvas, the Yakshas, and the Siddhas.
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.5.130.5777 Alas, united together they desire to vanquish this younger brother of Vasava, and seize this lotus-eyed one.
Mbh.5.130.5796 Like a child wishing to have the moon, seekest thou, O fool, to do what cannot be done by the very gods, headed by Vasava with all their strength?
Mbh.5.146.6527 Having provoked hostilities with others, they always wait on me respectfully, and always bow down to me, as the Vasus bow down to Vasava.
Mbh.5.151.6772 After the two sons of Madri had thus expressed their individual opinions, Vasava's son, Savyasachin, who was equal to Vasava himself, said these words, This celestial person of the hue of fire and endued with mighty arms, who sprang into life through the power of ascetic penances and the gratification of sages; who issued from the sacrificial fire-hole armed with bow and sword, accoutred in armour of steel, mounted on a car unto which were yoked excellent steeds of the best breed, and the clatter of whose car-wheels was as deep as the roar of mighty masses of clouds; this hero endued with that energy and strength and resembling the very lion in his frame of body and prowess, and possessed of leonine shoulders, arms, chest, and voice like the lion's roar; this hero of great effulgence; this warrior of handsome brows, fine teeth, round cheeks, long arms, of stout make, excellent thighs, large expansive eyes, excellent legs, and strong frame; this prince who is incapable of being penetrated by weapons of any kind, and who looks like an elephant with rent temples; this Dhrishtadyumna, truthful in speech, and with passions under control, was born for the destruction of Drona.
Mbh.5.157.6949 Like the sun among all luminaries, like the moon unto all delicious herbs, like Kuvera among the Yakshas, like Vasava among the gods, like Meru among mountains, Suparna among the birds, Kumara among the gods, Havyavaha among Vasus, thou art amongst ourselves.
Mbh.5.158.6996 And surrounded and guarded by those foremost warriors of the Vrishni race, resembling a herd of mighty tigers, like Vasava in the midst of the Maruts, the mighty-armed and handsome Rama, attired in garments of blue silk and resembling the peak of the Kailasa mountain, and endued with the sportive gait of the lion and possessed of eyes having their ends reddened with drink, came there at such a time.
Mbh.5.168.7623 Skilled in fight from the elephant's neck, this king will fight in battle, like Vasava among the celestials, fighting from his Airavata
Mbh.5.181.8111 O thou of high vows, I would not, even from fear of Vasava, forsake duty!
Mbh.6.11.593 The rivers there are full of sacred water, and Ganga herself, distributed as she hath been into various currents, is there, Sukumari, and Kumari, and Seta, and Keveraka, and Mahanadi, O Kauravya, and the river Manijala, and Chakshus, and the river Vardhanika, O thou best of the Bharatas, these and many other rivers by thousands and hundreds, all full of sacred water, are there, O perpetuator of Kuru's race, from which Vasava draweth water for showering it as rain.
Mbh.6.14.704 How did my father, who resembled Vasava himself, fall down from his car?
Mbh.6.34.1590 I am the Sama Veda among the Vedas; I am Vasava among the gods; I am the mind among the senses; I am the intellect in living beings.
Mbh.6.48.2470 And those two high-souled and mighty warriors then, both blazing with their arrows, battled with each other like Vritra and Vasava of old, desirous, O king, of slaying each other.
Mbh.6.53.2760 The son of Pandu is incapable of being vanquished by the very gods with Vasava.
Mbh.6.58.3076 The Pandavas are incapable of being vanquished in battle by the very gods with Vasava amongst them.
Mbh.6.59.3178 Beholding that those foremost of kings were flying together from the field of battle, and marking the mildness with which Partha fought, and beholding also that Bhishma was exerting himself very powerfully in battle, and that the Kurus were rushing from all sides, the younger brother of Vasava, the high-souled protector of all the Dasarhas, unable to bear it all, addressed the renowned grandson of Sini, and applauding him, said, O hero of Sini's race, they that are retreating, are, indeed, retreating.
Mbh.6.77.4070 Behold me slaying the foe like Vasava slaying the Danavas'
Mbh.6.82.4261 The Pandavas are incapable of being vanquished by the very gods with Vasava.
Mbh.6.89.4706 As regards the Pandavas, they are incapable of being vanquished by the very gods with Vasava at their head.
Mbh.6.91.4812 And when the forces of both perished, both of them, invincible in battle, encountered each other like Vritra and Vasava.
Mbh.6.97.5125 And addressing Vasava in the midst of battle, he said these words, Without doubt, the high-souled Vidura of great wisdom had before seen with his mind's eye this awful destruction of the Kurus and the Pandavas.
Mbh.6.97.5143 Then, O king, thy sons, surrounding Drona like the Vasus surrounding Vasava, rushed in the battle against Bhimasena.
Mbh.6.98.5227 And his brothers also walked in his train, like the celestials walking behind Vasava.
Mbh.6.99.5271 The son of Pritha defeated in battle the Nivatakavachas who were incapable of defeat by Vasava himself.
Mbh.6.101.5377 That mighty car-warrior and great bowman, having struck all the foes of the Pandavas, looked at that moment like Vasava himself armed with the thunder.
Mbh.6.101.5385 Routing that large army and causing many mighty car-warriors to tremble, he gladdened his friends like Vasava gladdening the celestials after vanquishing Maya.
Mbh.6.101.5415 Then the battle that took place between him and the cannibal resembled that between Vritra and Vasava.
Mbh.6.111.6041 Vasava himself cannot venture to fight with Arjuna in battle.
Mbh.6.112.6121 Encountering each other with great vigour, the battle that took place between them for Bhishma's sake was as fierce as that between Vritra and Vasava.
Mbh.6.113.6165 Capable of shooting his arrows to a great distance and shooting them with force, he is, besides, acquainted with omens, Endued with great might and intelligence, and above fatigue, that foremost of warriors is incapable of defeat by the very gods with Vasava at their head.
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.7.6.186 Protect thou, therefore, ourselves, like Vasava protecting the celestials.
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.7.7.225 Indeed, Karna is quite competent to vanquish in battle the very gods with Vasava at their head.
Mbh.7.7.253 Slaughtered by Drona, like Danavas by Vasava, the Panchalas headed by Dhrishtadyumna trembled in that battle.
Mbh.7.25.1347 Seeing that feat of Partha resembling that of Vasava himself, Madhava wondered much and, addressing him with joined hands, said, Verily, O Partha, I think that this feat which thou hast achieved, could not be performed by Sakra, or Yama, or the Lord of treasures himself.
Mbh.7.26.1362 Then advancing fiercely towards thy division, scattering showers of arrows, like Vasava pouring rain, none among thy troops, O king, ventured to oppose.
Mbh.7.26.1377 The valiant son of Vasava, however, with his arrows, cut off those arrowy showers of Bhagadatta before they could reach him.
Mbh.7.28.1486 Indeed, as Arjuna came, scattering clouds of arrows, like Vasava pouring thick showers of rain, there was none in thy army who could resist that great fierce bowman, that tiger among men.
Mbh.7.39.1977 Equal to Vasava himself in battle, that son of Vasava's son viz, Abhimanyu, looked resplendent in the midst of the hostile army
Mbh.7.60.2721 Then Vasava said, Let the child suck my fingers' Thereupon from the fingers of Indra issued milk sweet as nectar.
Mbh.7.61.2742 Having performed various sacrifices and virtuously begotten excellent offspring upon his wives Devayani, the daughter of Usanas and Sarmishtha, king Yayati, who was like unto a celestial, roved through the celestial woods at his own pleasure, like a second Vasava.
Mbh.7.75.3261 Understanding that both Nara and Narayana were in rage, the gods with Vasava became very anxious thinking, What will come of it'
Mbh.7.77.3354 How, indeed, will that slayer of hostile heroes, that son of Vasava, that mighty-armed warrior, accomplish his vow?
Mbh.7.85.3761 There the very gods with Vasava at their head will not be able to attack thee, what need be said, therefore, of the Pandavas?
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.7.89.3978 Then, king Srutayudha, deprived of his senses by wrath, took up another bow and struck the son of Vasava with nine arrows on the latter's arms and chest.
Mbh.7.95.4379 Beholding that lightness of hand equal unto that of Vasava himself, that foremost of regenerate ones, that first of all persons conversant with weapons, was highly gratified with Madhava.
Mbh.7.95.4380 And the gods also, with Vasava at their head, were gratified with it.
Mbh.7.97.4476 That slayer of hostile heroes, however, viz, the son of Vasava, of virtuous soul, felt no anxiety whatever.
Mbh.7.106.4955 The Rakshasa Ghatotkacha, then, that foremost of mighty beings, having thus slain his foe, uttered a loud shout, like Vasava after slaying the Asura Vala.
Mbh.7.109.5226 After those steeds, adorned with trappings of gold, had been yoked to that car, the younger brother of Daruka, who was the charioteer and the dear friend of Satyaki, came and represented unto the latter that the car had been duly equipped, like Matali representing the equipment of the car unto Vasava himself.
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.7.115.5621 And both thy warriors and the Somakas, O king highly applauded the encounter as between Vritra and Vasava.
Mbh.7.116.5657 Satyaki said, Like Vasava destroying the Danavas, I shall slay these warriors with shaved heads.
Mbh.7.130.6489 Indeed, O son, the Pandavas are incapable of being vanquished by the very gods with Vasava at their head.
Mbh.7.143.7417 Truly, O Arjuna, there is nothing in the three worlds which thou canst not achieve or do, O son of Vasava'
Mbh.7.144.7485 The latter hath with him the blazing dart, like a fierce meteor, that Vasava gave him.
Mbh.7.148.7779 When I saw Bhishma himself, that achiever of the most difficult feats in battle, that warrior who was incapable of being slain in battle by the gods with Vasava at their head, slain in thy sight, O Kaurava, as also of thy younger brother Duhsasana, I thought then, O king, that the Earth hath abandoned thee.
Mbh.7.155.8284 I will slay the son of Pandu and all the assembled Panchalas, I will give thee victory, like Pavaka's son giving victory unto Vasava.
Mbh.7.155.8347 It is true also that the Parthas are incapable of being vanquished by the very gods with Vasava at their head, and the Daityas, the Yakshas, and the Rakshasas.
Mbh.7.155.8348 For all that I will vanquish the Parthas with the help of the dart given me by Vasava.
Mbh.7.156.8494 The very gods with Vasava at their head are incapable of staying within the range of thy weapons, what need be said then of the Parthas and the Panchalas?
Mbh.7.157.8571 Beholding those feats of Drona's son, resembling those of Vasava himself in battle, the Pandava host, O bull of Bharata race, began to tremble in fear.
Mbh.7.165.8899 The battle that took place between those two great bowmen resembled, O king, that between Vala and Vasava in days of yore.
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.7.171.9247 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.7.173.9441 Once more beholding that foremost of warriors, viz, Ghatotkacha, fearlessly approaching him, surrounded by a large number of Rakshasas that resembled lions and tigers and infuriated elephants in prowess, some riding on elephants, some on cars, and some on horseback, all armed with diverse weapons and clad in diverse kinds of mail and diverse kinds of ornaments; in fact, beholding Ghatotkacha surrounded by those fierce Rakshasas like Vasava by the Maruts, the mighty bowman Karna began to battle with him fiercely.
Mbh.7.177.9669 Therefore, slay this terrible Rakshas now with that dart given thee by Vasava.
Mbh.7.178.9708 Neither Vasava, nor Varuna the lord of the waters, nor Yama, could venture to approach him.
Mbh.7.178.9721 Deprived, however, of his armour as also of his car-rings, O son of Pandu, and divested also of the dart given him by Vasava, Karna is now like a man and no longer like a god.
Mbh.7.180.9830 He is the most celebrated amongst them, like Vasava amongst the gods.
Mbh.7.181.9844 Indeed, when you knew that dart could always slay one person in battle, and that it was incapable of being either borne or baffled by the very gods with Vasava at their head, why then, O Sanjaya, was it not hurled by Karna at Devaki's son, or Phalguna, while he was engaged with this in battle before'
Mbh.7.181.9849 Indeed, because his understanding was afflicted by destiny itself, it is for this that he did not, stupefied by the illusion of the gods, hurl that fatal dart of Vasava, though he had it in his hand, at Devaki's son, Krishna for his destruction or at Partha endued with prowess like Indra's, O lord'
Mbh.7.181.9922 Indeed, Ghatotkacha hath been slain by death himself making the dart of Vasava an instrument only.
Mbh.7.184.10098 While summoning the hostile army to battle, and looking like an elephant in rut, the enemy became perfectly hopeless of vanquishing him, like the Danavas hopeless of vanquishing Vasava.
Mbh.7.188.10346 Beholding the sons of Kunti afflicted with the shafts of Drona and inspired with fear, Kesava, endued with great intelligence and, devoted to their welfare, addressed Arjuna and said, This foremost of all bowmen is incapable of being ever vanquished by force in battle, by the very gods with Vasava at their head.
Mbh.7.191.10584 Beholding the fall of Bharadwaja's son, which was like unto the dropping of the sun down upon the earth, or the drying up of the ocean, or the transplantation of Meru, or the defeat of Vasava, beholding that act, incapable of being quietly witnessed, the Kauravas, O king, fled away in fear, terror lending them greater speed.
Mbh.7.194.10770 It is evident that upon the fall of Drona, Vasava himself is approaching against us for the sake of the Kauravas.
Mbh.7.199.11418 Approaching him, all the gods with Vasava at their head, said, These terrible dwellers of the triple city have received boons from Brahma.
Mbh.8.3.74 Let the sons of Pandu behold today the prowess of both Ashvatthama and Karna resembling that of Vishnu and Vasava!
Mbh.8.9.320 He who, disregarding the fierce touch of the arrows shot from gandiva had addressed Krishna, saying, Thou hast no husbands now and glared at the Pandavas, he who, O Sanjaya, relying on the might of his own arms, had entertained no fear, for even a moment, of the Parthas with their sons and Janardana, he, I think, could not possibly meet with death at the hands of the very gods with Vasava at their head rushing against him in fury, what then need I say, O sire, of the Pandavas?
Mbh.8.14.582 All at once a fierce encounter ensued between them like to what had taken place between Vritra and Vasava in the battle between the gods and the Asuras of old
Mbh.8.31.1434 Against my car, the very gods with Vasava at their head will not dare advance.
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.8.43.2335 If all the gods themselves with Vasava would fight with me, I would not still feel any fear, what need be said then of my fears from Pritha and Keshava?
Mbh.8.56.3250 Repairing to that further wing which was protected by the Kambojas, Partha began to grind it forcibly with his arrows like Vasava grinding the Danavas.
Mbh.8.65.3809 Beholding that bull of tigers among men safe and sound, the two Krishnas became filled with joy, like the twin Ashvinis on seeing Vasava.
Mbh.8.66.3825 He was invincible in battle by the very gods with Vasava at their head.
Mbh.8.68.3938 This son of thine that is born will have the prowess of Vasava himself!
Mbh.8.72.4331 No one, not even the gods with Vasava at their head, can slay the son of Radha, save thee, as I think.
Mbh.8.73.4357 Save thee, O tiger among men, who else is there, even if he resemble Vasava himself in prowess, that could vanquish king Bhagadatta?
Mbh.8.73.4386 Having obtained thee that art a tiger among men as his foe, that grandsire is now stretched on a bed of arrows, like Vritra when he obtained Vasava for his foe.
Mbh.8.87.5313 Even thus did Surya and Vasava, those two foremost of personages, who were there and had adopted opposite sides, dispute with each other.
Mbh.8.88.5402 the enemy and thy warriors stood their ground, encircling those two mighty car-warriors like the gods and the asuras standing around Vasava and Samvara.
Mbh.8.92.5899 Brave kings, who in energy, courage, and might, were equal to Kuvera or Yama or Vasava or the Lord of the waters, who were possessed of every merit, who were almost unslayable, and who were desirous of achieving thy object, have in battle been slain by the Pandavas.
Mbh.8.94.6063 Then riding on that car of theirs whose rattle resembled the roar of the clouds and whose splendour was like that of the meridian sun of the autumnal sky, which was adorned with banners and equipped with a standard incessantly producing an awful noise, whose effulgence resembled that of the snow or the Moon or the conch or the crystal, and whose steeds were like those of Indra himself, those two foremost of men, viz, the son of Pandu and the crusher of Keshi, whose energy resembled that of the great Indra, and who were adorned with gold and pearls and gems and diamonds and corals, and who were like fire or the sun in splendour, fearlessly careered over the field of battle with great speed, like Vishnu and Vasava mounted on the same chariot.
Mbh.8.94.6071 Casting off those arrows, those two mighty warriors, both endued with unrivalled prowess, surrounded by well-wishers and friends, happily entered their own encampment, like the lords Vasava and Vishnu duly invoked by sacrificial priests.
Mbh.9.7.449 Slay that warrior, O thou of mighty arms, like Vasava slaying the Asura Namuchi.
Mbh.9.12.704 Bhima, however, armed with his mighty mace, rushed impetuously towards Shalya who then looked like the blazing Yuga-fire, or the Destroyer armed with the noose, or the Kailasa mountain with its formidable crest, or Vasava with his thunder, or Mahadeva with his trident, or an infuriate elephant in the forest.
Mbh.9.16.927 They are counted as heroes incapable of being vanquished by Vasava himself.
Mbh.9.20.1250 While he shot his arrows in that battle and despatched hostile warriors to Yama's abode, neither the Kauravas nor the Pandavas could notice any lapses in him, even as the Daityas, O king, could not notice any in Vasava, the wielder of the thunder, in days of yore, while the latter was employed in crushing their divisions.
Mbh.9.24.1653 The battle that took place between the two was beautiful and fierce, like that which had occurred in days of yore between Vasava and the Asura Jambha, O lord!
Mbh.9.41.2989 Hear how Vasava, in days of yore, broke his treaty with Namuchi!
Mbh.9.41.2990 The Asura Namuchi, from fear of Vasava, had entered a ray of the Sun.
Mbh.9.43.3108 The gods then, with Vasava at their head, and the Gandharvas, the Yakshas, the Rakshasas, the Munis, and the Pitris, all shouted, Victory to Skanda'
Mbh.9.43.3114 Vasava that slayer of hostile heroes, gave unto Agni's son two companions, Utkrosa and Panchaka, who were armed respectively with thunder-bolt and club.
Mbh.9.44.3279 All the gods, with Vasava at their head, praised Kumara.
Mbh.9.45.3376 Upon the disappearance of Agni, all the gods, with Vasava at their head, in great affliction, searched for the missing god.
Mbh.9.45.3378 The celestials, O tiger among king, with Brihaspati at their head, having succeeded in finding out the god, became very glad with Vasava amongst them.
Mbh.9.47.3512 There, in that tirtha situated on the bank of that river, all the gods with Vasava at their head, the Viswedevas, the Maruts, the Gandharvas, the Apsaras, the Island-born Vyasa, Suka, Krishna the slayer of Madhu, the Yakshas, the Rakshasas, and the Pisachas, O king, and diverse others, numbering by thousands, all crowned with ascetic success, always reside.
Mbh.9.53.3828 Both of them were exceedingly angry; both were possessed of awful prowess; in encounters with the mace both were disciples of Rohini's intelligent son, both resembled each other in their feats and looked like Maya and Vasava.
Mbh.9.55.3960 Even thus occurred that battle, awfully and before the gaze of a large multitude, towards the close of the day, like the battle between Vritra and Vasava.
Mbh.9.55.3975 Even thus progressed that awful combat before the gaze of thousands of spectators at the close of day, like the fierce battle that took place between Vritra and Vasava.
Mbh.10.4.214 No one, not even Vasava amongst the gods, would venture to vanquish thee armed with foremost of weapons, O first of car-warriors!
Mbh.10.13.889 Seated on that car, by the side of him of Dasharha's race who wielded the bow called sharnga, the two sons of Pandu looked exceedingly beautiful, like the twin Ashvinis seated by the side of Vasava.
Mbh.12.46.2257 Thus addressed, the illustrious younger brother of Vasava, recalling his mind, understanding, and the senses to their usual sphere, said these words with a soft smile'
Mbh.12.50.2704 By thy virtues, however, thou hast surpassed them all and art equal unto Vasava himself.
Mbh.12.52.2831 Surrounded by them, king Yudhishthira like the moon in the midst of the stars approached Ganga's son like Vasava proceeding towards Brahman.
Mbh.12.90.5173 This is the way in which Vasava, and Yama, and Varuna, and all the great royal sages have acted.
Mbh.12.97.5418 Beholding the prosperity of his general Sudeva, and observing how he traversed regions that were still higher, the high-souled Amvarisha, filled with surprise, addressed Vasava, in the following words'
Mbh.12.97.5419 Amvarisha said, Having duly governed the whole earth bounded by the seas, having from desire of earning religious merit practised all those duties that are common to the four orders as declared by the scriptures, having practised with rigid austerity all the duties of the Brahmacharya mode, having waited with dutiful obedience upon my preceptors and other reverend seniors, having studied with due observances the Vedas and the scriptures on kingly duties, having gratified guests with food and drink, the Pitris with offerings in Sraddhas, the Rishis with attentive study of the scriptures and with initiation under proper forms into the mysteries of religion, and the gods with many excellent and high sacrifices, having duly observed Kshatriya duties according to the injunctions of the scriptures, having cast my eyes fearlessly upon hostile troops, I won many victories in battle, O Vasava!
Mbh.12.102.5705 Once on a time, that slayer of hostile heroes, viz, Vasava, the chief of the celestials, joining his palms, approached Vrihaspati, and saluting him, said these words'
Mbh.12.165.9888 The latter gave it to Vasava.
Mbh.12.165.9889 Vasava gave it to the Regents of the world.
Mbh.12.172.10309 Hearing these words of his, Vasava, O foremost of men, sprinkled nectar over the Brahmana Gautama and restored him to life.
Mbh.12.206.12517 The puissant Vishnu made Vasava the chief of all the deities.
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.12.222.13470 Thou shouldst, on the other hand, O Vasava, solicit instruction from him about morality, O Sakra, as thou pleasest'
Mbh.12.222.13494 Vali said, Thou seest not now, O Vasava, my jar and umbrella and fans.
Mbh.12.223.13559 Thou knowest this, O Vasava!
Mbh.12.223.13585 It was I that used to bear up water and then to shower it as rain, O Vasava!
Mbh.12.223.13618 Many thousands of Indras have passed away, O Vasava, each of whom was possessed of great strength and prowess.
Mbh.12.224.13647 I have other names also, O Vasava!
Mbh.12.226.13766 In this connection is once more cited the old narrative of the discourse between Vali and Vasava, O Yudhishthira!
Mbh.12.226.13844 It will stay with thee, O Vasava, for some time and then prove its instability.
Mbh.12.226.13886 It is for this reason, O Vasava, that thou art able to stand before me!
Mbh.12.226.13897 We also, O Vasava, know thee.
Mbh.12.227.14127 After the goddess had said so, the celestial Rishi Narada, and Vasava, the slayer of Vritra, for gladdening her, offered her a joyful welcome.
Mbh.12.280.17264 Bhishma continued, While Vasava of great energy was thus being restored to consciousness by the high-souled Vasishtha, his strength became greatly enhanced.
Mbh.12.280.17269 Then Vrihaspati of great intelligence and Vasishtha of exceeding energy, and all the other foremost of Rishis, repairing to Him of a hundred sacrifices, viz, the boon-giving Vasava, the adored of all the worlds, addressed him, saying, Slay Vritra, O puissant one, without delay'
Mbh.12.280.17277 I impart to thee my energy, O Vasava!
Mbh.12.281.17365 Regaining his prosperity and slaying thousands of foes, great was the joy that Vasava obtained, O lord of Earth!
Mbh.12.282.17376 Thou hast said, O ruler of men, that Vritra was first stupefied by Fever, and that then, O sinless one, he was slain by Vasava with the thunderbolt.
Mbh.12.294.18376 Then the seven ancient Rishis came forward and installed Vasava as the chief of the gods and the ruler of heaven.
Mbh.12.333.21279 Vasava poured showers of rain of excellent taste and fragrance.
Mbh.12.339.21950 In some of these feats, only Arjuna, the son of Vasava, will become my assistant.
Mbh.13.2.239 Bhishma continued, Then the glorious Vasava the lord of the gods, riding in a fine chariot drawn by a thousand white horses, approached that Brahmana.
Mbh.13.5.336 Bhishma said, In this connection, this ancient legend, the story of Vasava and the high-minded Suka, is cited as an illustration.
Mbh.13.6.414 Vasu, though he performed a hundred sacrifices like a second Vasava, was sent to the nethermost regions, for making a single false statement.
Mbh.13.12.815 The ascetic lady, joining her hands, answered Indra, saying, O Vasava, let those sons of mine come to life that were borne by me as a woman.
Mbh.13.12.826 In fact, do not wish to be restored to the status of manhood, O Vasava,
Mbh.13.17.2013 Thou art Vasava.
Mbh.13.26.3557 They, O foremost of intelligent men, who plunge every day in the sacred waters of Ganga, become the equals of great Munis and the very deities with Vasava at their head.
Mbh.13.29.3764 The lord and giver of boons, engaged in the good of all creatures, viz, Vasava beholding him falling down, quickly came to that spot and held him fast'
Mbh.13.29.3798 Having granted him these boons, Vasava disappeared there and then.
Mbh.13.33.4038 Upon them depends the course of conduct followed by men, even as the existence of all creatures depends upon Vasava.
Mbh.13.34.4083 The peace and happiness of the kingdom flow from such respect shown to the Brahmanas even as the peace and happiness of all living creatures flow from Vasava, the chief of the celestials.
Mbh.13.41.4478 It is for this that I do not, O Vasava, wish to burn thee.
Mbh.13.62.6078 Bhishma continued, Hearing these words from the son of Angiras, Vasava made a gift unto him of the whole earth with all her jewels and gems and all her wealth of diverse kinds.
Mbh.13.73.6737 The kine that live there, O Vasava, obtain the fruition of every desire which they cherish in their hearts.
Mbh.13.83.7396 They represent sacrifice itself, O Vasava!
Mbh.13.83.7404 They uphold all creatures by diverse acts, O Vasava, kine are guileless in their behaviour.
Mbh.13.83.7407 Kine obtained many excellent forms, O Vasava, and are themselves givers of boons to others.
Mbh.13.83.7433 No ill luck, O Vasava, exists there.
Mbh.13.83.7435 There many beautiful cars, all excellently equipped, which move at the will of the rider, may be seen, O Vasava, O thou of eyes like lotus-petals, it is only by Brahmacharya, by penances, by Truth, by self-restraint, by gifts, by diverse kinds of righteous deeds, by sojourns to sacred waters, in fact, by severe austerities and righteous acts well-performed, that one can attain to Goloka.
Mbh.13.86.7944 The gods numbering three and thirty, the points of the compass in their embodied forms together with the deities presiding over them, and Rudra and Dhatri and Vishnu and Yama and Pushan and Aryaman and Bhaga, and Angas and Mitra and the Sadhyas and Vasava and the Vasus and the Aswins and the Waters and the Wind and the Firmament and Chandramas and all the Constellations and the Planets and Surya, and all the Ricks and Samans and Yajuses in their embodied forms, came there to behold that wonderful child who was the son of the deity of blazing flames.

Mbh.13.156.13029 Indeed, all the gods with Vasava seemed to stand at the root of that great Asura's tongue, even as fishes when they enter into the wide open mouth of a leviathan.
Mbh.14.5.128 At that time, Vasava having vanquished and destroyed the Asuras, and obtained the sovereignty of the celestial regions had appointed as his priest Angira's eldest son, that best of Brahmanas, Vrihaspati.
Mbh.14.5.135 He had a son named Marutta, endowed with energy, and resembling Vasava himself.
Mbh.14.5.137 He always used to defy the lord of the celestials; and O son of Pandu, Vasava also defied Marutta.
Mbh.14.7.196 My brother is able to officiate at sacrifices, and he has gone over to Vasava Indra, and is engaged in performing his sacrifices, do thou therefore have thy sacrifice performed by him.
Mbh.14.7.199 Marutta said, Do thou listen to me, O Samvarta, I did go to Vrihaspati first, but desiring the patronage of Vasava, he did not wish to have me as his sacrificer.
Mbh.14.7.203 And thus repulsed, I now desire to spend all I possess, to have this sacrifice performed by thee, and to outstrip Vasava by the merit of thy good offices.
Mbh.14.9.258 Agni said, Let this king of the Gandharvas repair thither as thy messenger, O Vasava, for, I am afraid to go thither myself.
Mbh.14.10.280 Vyasa said, Then Dhritarashtra betook himself to that monarch's court and delivered this message to him from Vasava
Mbh.14.10.285 The Gandharva said, Do thou, O lion among princes, listen to the terrible war-cry of Vasava roaring, in the heavens.
Mbh.14.10.288 Vyasa said, Thus accosted by Dhritarashtra, and hearing the roar of howling Vasava, the king communicated this intelligence to Samvarta steadfast in devotion and the highest of all virtuous men
Mbh.14.10.296 Thou hast nothing to fear, let Vasava pour down the rains and plast his terrific thunderbolt where he will, floating among the watery masses clouds for thy destruction, for the god Vahnni Agni will protect thee in every way, and make thee attain all the objects of thy desire
Mbh.14.53.2358 Vasava rained pure and fragrant showers and celestial flowers before the wielder of Saranga.
Mbh.14.55.2483 If, however, he sends me away from disregard, I shall not then give it to him on any account, Having made this compact with me, Vasava appeared before thee, in that disguise, for giving thee nectar.
Mbh.14.59.2734 Govinda entered his residence after a long absence, having accomplished feats of great difficulty like Vasava amid the Danava host.
Mbh.14.60.2751 Bhishma of Kuru's race became the generalissimo, having eleven divisions of the Kaurava princes under his command, like Vasava of the celestial forces
Mbh.14.80.3584 This hero is incapable of being vanquished by men as also by the deities with Vasava himself at their head I have exhibited this illusion, deceiving your senses, for the benefit of this foremost of men, viz, thy illustrious sire.
Mbh.14.92.4318 When these words were said, Agastya of great prowess, gratifying those ascetics by bending his head, said, If Vasava does not pour rain for those twelve years, I shall then perform the mental sacrifice.
Mbh.14.92.4320 If Vasava does not pour rain for these twelve years, I shall then perform the Touch-sacrifice.
Mbh.14.92.4322 If Vasava does not pour rain for these twelve years, I shall then, putting forth all my exertion, make arrangements for other sacrifices characterised by the observance of the most difficult and severe vows.
Mbh.15.17.705 I instilled courage into thy heart in order that thou who art the foremost of all righteous persons, who art equal to Vasava, might not again go into the woods and live in misery.
Mbh.15.17.707 I instilled courage into your hearts in order that this Vijaya, who was born after Bhimasena, and who is equal unto Vasava himself might not be cheerless.
Mbh.16.4.181 When he reached Heaven, Vasava and the twin Ashvinis and Rudra and the Adityas and the Vasus and the Viswedevas, and Munis and Siddhas and many foremost ones among the Gandharvas, with the Apsaras, advanced to receive him.
Mbh.16.5.204 Indeed, the son of Vasava, endued with great intelligence, beheld the city to look even thus, reft as it was of the Vrishni heroes.
