MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.63.3029 That king of the Paurava race, called also Vasu, conquered the excellent and delightful kingdom of Chedi under instructions from Indra.
Mbh.1.63.3054 And the god, for the gratification of the illustrious Vasu, assuming the form of a swan, came himself to accept the worship thus offered.
Mbh.1.63.3055 And the god, beholding the auspicious worship thus made by Vasu, that first of monarchs, was delighted, and said unto him, Those men, and kings also, who will worship me and joyously observe this festival of mine like the king of Chedi, shall have glory and victory for their countries and kingdom.
Mbh.1.63.3057 King Vasu was thus blessed by the gratified Maghavat, the high-souled chief of the gods.
Mbh.1.63.3059 And king Vasu, the lord of Chedis bestowing boons and performing great sacrifices and observing the festivity of Sakra, was much respected by Indra.
Mbh.1.63.3061 And for the gratification of Indra, Vasu, the lord of the Chedis, observed the festivity of Indra.
Mbh.1.63.3062 And Vasu had five sons of great energy and immeasurable prowess.
Mbh.1.63.3068 And the five sons of Vasu planted kingdoms and towns after their own names and founded separate dynasties that lasted for long ages.
Mbh.1.63.3069 And when king Vasu took his seat in that crystal car, with the gift of Indra, and coursed through the sky, he was approached by Gandharvas and Apsaras the celestial singers and dancers.
Mbh.1.63.3073 And Vasu, beholding the foul attempt, struck the mountain with his foot.
Mbh.1.63.3076 And the river, grateful to Vasu for his having set her free from Kolahala's embraces, gave them both to Vasu.
Mbh.1.63.3077 And the son was made the generalissimo to his forces by Vasu, that best of royal sages and giver of wealth and punisher of enemies.
Mbh.1.63.3078 And the daughter called Girika, was wedded by Vasu.
Mbh.1.63.3079 And Girika, the wife of Vasu, after her menstrual course, purifying herself by a bath, represented her state unto her lord.
Mbh.1.63.3080 But that very day the Pitris of Vasu came unto that best of monarchs and foremost of wise men, and asked him to slay deer for their Sraddha.
Mbh.1.63.3115 And that bull amongst Munis addressed the daughter of Vasu of celestial beauty and tapering thighs, saying, Accept my embraces, O blessed one'
Mbh.1.66.3347 And the sister of Vrihaspati, the first of women, uttering the sacred truth, engaged in ascetic penances, roamed over the whole earth; and she became the wife of Prabhasa, the eighth Vasu.
Mbh.1.94.5160 They were Dushmanta, Sura, Bhima, Pravasu, and Vasu.
Mbh.1.100.5576 And Santanu's son, the Vasu born of Ganga, named Devavrata resembled Santanu himself in personal beauty, in habits and behaviour, and in learning.
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.2.32.1400 Yajnavalkya devoted to Brahma became the Adhyaryu, and Paila, the son of Vasu and Dhaumya became the Hotris.
Mbh.3.12.614 O slayer of all foes, having floated on the primordial waters, thou subsequently becamest Hari and Brahma and Surya and Dharma, and Dhatri and Yama and Anala and Vasu, and Vaisravana, and Rudra, and Kala and the firmament the earth, and the ten directions!
Mbh.3.116.5997 At that very moment came in the eldest of Jamadagni's sons, Rumanvan; and then, Sushena, and then, Vasu, and likewise, Viswavasu.
Mbh.4.2.54 What office will be performed by Arjuna who, dwelling for five years in the abode of the thousand-eyed Deity Indra shining in celestial lustre, acquired by his own energy the science of superhuman arms with all celestial weapons, and whom I regard as the tenth Rudra, the thirteenth Aditya, the ninth Vasu, and the tenth Graha, whose arms, symmetrical and long, have the skin hardened by constant strokes of the bowstring and cicatrices which resemble those on the humps of bulls, that foremost of warriors who is as Himavat among mountains, the ocean among expanses of water, Sakra among the celestial, Havya-vaha fire among the Vasus, the tiger among beasts, and Garuda among feathery tribes
Mbh.5.74.3730 Janamejaya among the Nepas, Vahula among the Talajanghas, proud Vasu among the Krimis, Ajavindu among the Suviras, Rushardhik among the Surashtras, Arkaja among the Valihas, Dhautamulaka among the Chinas, Hayagriva among the Videhas, Varayu among the Mahaujasas, Vahu among the Sundaras, Pururavas among the Diptakshas, Sahaja among the Chedis and Matsyas, Vrishaddhaja among the Praviras, Dharana among the Chandra-batsyas, Bigahana among the Mukutas and Sama among the Nandivegas.
Mbh.5.188.8437 Santanu's son by Ganga, a celebrated Vasu as he is, how can he be defeated by thee?
Mbh.12.335.21501 After the publication of his treatise by the Self-born Manu and of that by Usanas, and after the publication of the treatise also by Vrihaspati, this science composed by you will be acquired by king Vasu otherwise known by the name of Uparichara.
Mbh.12.336.21518 King Uparichara, otherwise called Vasu, became a disciple of Vrihaspati and soon became the foremost of his disciples.
Mbh.12.336.21540 Bhishma continued, When Vrihaspati gave way to wrath, the great king Vasu and all his Sadasyas sought to pacify the great Rishi.
Mbh.12.336.21621 King Vasu, O tiger among monarchs, was always devoted to the true religion.
Mbh.12.336.21624 Ascending from the bowels of the Earth, king Vasu in consequence of the very highest end that he attained, proceeded to a spot that is even higher than the region of Brahman himself
Mbh.12.337.21625 SECTION CCCXXXVIII Yudhishthira said, When the great king Vasu was so wholly devoted to Narayana, for what reason then did he fall down from heaven and why again had he to sink beneath the surface of the Earth
Mbh.12.337.21635 Bhishma continued, While this discourse was going between the Rishis and the deities, that foremost of kings, viz, Vasu, was seen to come that way.
Mbh.12.337.21637 Beholding king Vasu coming to that spot through the skies, the Brahmanas addressing the deities, said, This one will remove our doubts.
Mbh.12.337.21641 How, indeed, will the great Vasu, speak otherwise, Having thus spoken unto each other, the deities and the Rishis quickly approached king Vasu and questioned him, saying, O king, with what should one perform sacrifices?
Mbh.12.337.21645 Thus addressed by them, Vasu joined his hands in humility and said unto them,
Mbh.12.337.21650 Bhishma continued, Learning what the opinion was that was entertained by the deities, Vasu, moved by partiality for them, said that sacrifices should be performed with animals.
Mbh.12.337.21652 Addressing Vasu who was seated on his car and who had wrongly taken up the side of the deities, they said unto him, Since thou hast wrongly taken up the side of the deities, do thou fall down from heaven.
Mbh.12.337.21657 To the good fortune of Vasu, the deities, pained at the course denounced on him by the Brahmanas, began to think anxiously as to how that course might be neutralised.
Mbh.12.337.21674 Then Vasu, O Bharata, began to adore the Creator of the universe and to recite in silence those sacred mantras that had come out of Narayana's mouth in days of yore
Mbh.12.337.21678 There is a great king of the name of Vasu who is of righteous soul and rigid vows.
Mbh.12.337.21683 Hearing these words of Vishnu, Garuda, spreading his wings and rushing with the speed of the wind, entered that hole in the Earth in which king Vasu was living.
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.13.14.1396 Among the Adityas thou art Vishnu Upendra, among the Vasu thou art Pavaka, among birds thou art the son of Vinata Garuda, and among snakes thou art Ananta Sesha.
Mbh.13.17.2623 Thou art Vasu, the son of Aditi.
Mbh.13.80.7172 They who make gifts of a thousand kine, departing from this world, proceed to the regions of the Gandharvas and the Apsaras where there are many palatial mansions made of gold and where the celestial Ganga, called the current of Vasu, runs.
Mbh.13.115.10331 Filled with doubts respecting the propriety of eating flesh, the Rishis asked Vasu the ruler of the Chedis for solving them.
Mbh.13.115.10332 King Vasu, knowing that flesh is inedible, answered that is was edible, O monarch.
Mbh.13.115.10333 From that moment Vasu fell down from the firmament on the earth.
Mbh.13.115.10352 These other kings also, viz, Syenachitra, O monarch, and Somaka and Vrika and Raivata and Rantideva and Vasu and Srinjaya, and Dushmanta and Karushma and Rama and Alarka and Nala, and Virupaswa and Nimi and Janaka of great intelligence, and Aila and Prithu and Virasena, and Ikshvaku, and Sambhu, and Sweta, and Sagara, and Aja and Dhundhu and Suvahu, and Haryaswa and Kshupa and Bharata, O monarch, did not eat flesh for the month of Karttika and as the consequence thereof attained to heaven, and endued with prosperity, blazed forth with effulgence in the region of Brahman, adored by Gandharvas and surrounded by thousand damsels of great beauty.
Mbh.13.150.12621 Dharma, Kama, Kala, Vasu, Vasuki, Ananta, and Kapila, these seven are the upholders of the world.
Mbh.14.91.4272 The Rishis then, those beholders of truth, having made an understanding with Sakra about referring the matter to arbitration asked king Vasu, O highly blessed one, what is the Vedic declaration about sacrifices?
Mbh.14.91.4274 Hearing the question, king Vasu, without all judging of the strength or weakness of the arguments on the two sides, at once answered, saying, Sacrifices may be performed with whichever of the two kinds of objects is ready'
