See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.27 Then appeared the man of inconceivable nature whom all the Rishis know and so the Viswe-devas, the Adityas, the Vasus, and the twin Aswins; the Yakshas, the Sadhyas, the Pisachas, the Guhyakas, and the Pitris.
Mbh.1.2.367 This parva also describes the greatness of Bhagirathi, and the births of the Vasus in the house of Santanu and their ascension to heaven.
Mbh.1.2.368 In this parva is also narrated the birth of Bhishma uniting in himself portions of the energies of the other Vasus, his renunciation of royalty and adoption of the Brahmacharya mode of life, his adherence to his vows, his protection of Chitrangada, and after the death of Chitrangada, his protection of his younger brother, Vichitravirya, and his placing the latter on the throne: the birth of Dharma among men in consequence of the curse of Animondavya; the births of Dhritarashtra and Pandu through the potency of Vyasa's blessings and
Mbh.1.28.1657 Let Marut the god of the winds protect thy wings, and Surya and Soma thy vertebral regions; let Agni protect thy head, and the Vasus thy whole body.
Mbh.1.30.1772 And the weapons of the Vasus, the Rudras, the Adityas, the Sabhyas, the Maruts, and other gods, began to spend their force against one another.
Mbh.1.32.1869 Overcome by the lord of birds, the Sadhyas with the Gandharvas fled eastwards, the Vasus with the Rudras towards the south, the Adityas towards the west, and the twin Aswins towards the north.
Mbh.1.55.2757 Thou art the home of the good fortune that belongs to the Vasus.
Mbh.1.63.3147 Then Bhishma, of great energy and fame and of immeasurable splendour, and sprung from the component parts of the Vasus, was born in the womb of Ganga through king Santanu.
Mbh.1.66.3332 And the sons of Prajapati were eight and were called Vasus whom I shall name in detail.
Mbh.1.66.3334 These eight are known as the Vasus.
Mbh.1.66.3366 These are the thirty-three gods the eight Vasus, the eleven Rudras, the twelve Adityas, Prajapati, and Vashatkara.
Mbh.1.66.3368 The Rudras, the Saddhyas, the Maruts, the Vasus, the Bhargavas, and the Viswedevas are each reckoned as a Paksha.
Mbh.1.67.3495 And from the curse of Vasishtha and the command also of Indra, the eight Vasus were born of Ganga by her husband Santanu.
Mbh.1.69.3625 And they said, This is that tiger among men who in battle is equal unto the Vasus in prowess, and in consequence of the might of whose arms no foes are left'
Mbh.1.76.4270 Thou art indeed, O daughter, in consequence of my prowess, worshipped thrice a day during the ordained hours of prayer, by Brahmanas, the gods with Indra, the Vasus, the Aswins, the Asuras, in fact, by the whole universe.
Mbh.1.87.4836 SECTION LXXXVII Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, While that king of kings dwelt in heaven, the home of the celestials, he was reverenced by the gods, the Sadhyas, the Maruts, and the Vasus.
Mbh.1.96.5383 And on her way, she saw those dwellers in heaven, the Vasus, also pursuing the same path.
Mbh.1.96.5386 Those celestials, the Vasus, answered her, saying, O queen of rivers, we have been cursed, for a venial fault, by the illustrious Vasishtha in anger.
Mbh.1.96.5391 Therefore, O river, thyself becoming a human female make us the Vasus, thy children.
Mbh.1.96.5394 The Vasus replied, On earth, unto Pratipa shall be born a son, Santanu, who will be a king of world-wide fame'
Mbh.1.96.5398 The Vasus then said, It behoveth thee to throw thy children after birth, into the water, so that, O thou of three courses celestial, terrestrial, and subterranean we may be rescued soon without having to live on earth for any length of time'
Mbh.1.96.5401 The Vasus then replied, We shall each contribute an eighth part of our respective energies With the sum thereof, thou shall have one son according to thy and his wishes.
Mbh.1.96.5404 The Vasus, making this arrangement with Ganga, went away without Waiting to the place they liked
Mbh.1.98.5458 SECTION XCVIII Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, The maiden then, hearing those soft and sweet words of the smiling monarch, and remembering her promise to the Vasus, addressed the king in reply.
Mbh.1.98.5486 The eight illustrious Vasus endued with great energy had, from Vasishtha's curse, to assume human forms.
Mbh.1.98.5490 Thou also, having become the father of the eight Vasus, hast acquired many regions of perennial bliss.
Mbh.1.98.5491 It was also agreed between myself and the Vasus that I should free them from their human forms as soon as they would be born.
Mbh.1.98.5495 That I should live with thee so long was the promise I gave to the Vasus.
Mbh.1.99.5497 SECTION XCIX Sambhava Parva continued Santanu asked, What was the fault of the Vasus and who was Apava, through whose curse the Vasus had to be born among men?
Mbh.1.99.5499 Why also were the Vasus, the lords of the three worlds, condemned to be born amongst men?
Mbh.1.99.5510 One day, O bull of Bharata's race, there came into those woods adored by the gods and celestial Rishis, the Vasus with Prithu at their head.
Mbh.1.99.5512 And as they wandered there, the slender-waisted wife of one of the Vasus, O thou of the prowess of Indra, saw in those woods Nandini, the cow of plenty.
Mbh.1.99.5526 He began to search for them in the woods, but when the great ascetic of superior intelligence found not his cow on search, he saw by his ascetic vision that she had been stolen by the Vasus.
Mbh.1.99.5527 His wrath was instantly kindled and he cursed the Vasus, saying, Because the Vasus have stolen my cow of sweet milk and handsome tail, therefore, shall they certainly be born on earth'
Mbh.1.99.5528 O thou bull of Bharata's race, the illustrious Rishi Apava thus cursed the Vasus in wrath.
Mbh.1.99.5530 And after that Brahmarshi of great power and ascetic wealth had thus in wrath cursed the Vasus, the latter, O king, coming to know of it, speedily came into his asylum.
Mbh.1.99.5533 The virtuous Apava, however, said, Ye Vasus, with Dhava and others, ye have been cursed by me.
Mbh.1.99.5540 Thus addressing the Vasus, the great Rishi went away.
Mbh.1.99.5541 The Vasus then together came to me.
Mbh.1.123.6660 And the twin Aswins, the eight Vasus, the mighty Maruts, the Viswedevas, and the Sadhyas, also came there.
Mbh.1.188.9430 And there came also the celestials on their cars, with the Rudras and the Adityas, the Vasus and the twin Aswins, the Swadhas and all the Marutas, and Kuvera with Yama walking ahead.
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.1.198.9885 Endued with every accomplishment, and decked with celestial robes of great beauty and fragrant garlands of excellent making the king beheld them as so many three-eyed gods Mahadeva, or Vasus, or Rudras, or Adityas themselves.
Mbh.1.228.11169 And Rudras and the Vasus, the mighty Maruts and the Viswedevas and the Sadhyas, all resplendent with their own energy, these and many other celestials, armed with various weapons rushed against those exalted of men, Krishna and Partha, for smiting them down.
Mbh.2.11.438 The twenty tribes of the Gandharvas and Apsaras, as also their seven other tribes, and all the Lokapalas chief protectors of several regions, and Sukra, and Vrihaspati, and Vudha, and Angaraka Mangala, Sani, Rahu, and the other planets; the Mantras of the Sama Veda, the special Mantras of the same Veda; the rites of Harimat and Vasumat, the Adityas with Indra, the two Agnis mentioned by name viz Agnisoma and Indragni, the Marutas, Viswakarman, and the Vasus, O Bharata; the Pitris, and all kinds of sacrificial libations, the four Vedas.

Mbh.3.2.171 It is by virtue of their wealth of yoga that the Rudras, and the Sadhyas, and the Adityas and the Vasus, and the twin Aswins, rule the creatures.
Mbh.3.3.221 The Vasus, the Manilas, and the Rudras, the Sadhyas, the Marichipas, the Valikhilyas, and the Siddhas, have attained pre-eminence by bowing down unto thee.
Mbh.3.37.1949 And, O bull of the Bharata race, I bow to the Vasus, the Rudras and Adityas, the Manilas, the Viswadevas, and the Sadhyas, for procuring thy welfare.
Mbh.3.41.2194 O sinless one, by thee shall be vanquished in battle the highly virtuous grandsire of the Kurus, Bhishma of great energy, who is born of the Vasus.
Mbh.3.43.2304 There he met with the Sadhyas, the Viswas, the Marutas, the twin Aswins, the Adityas, the Vasus, the Rudras, the Brahmarshis of the great splendour, and numerous royal sages with Dilipa at their head, and Tumvura and Narada, and that couple of Gandharvas known by the names of Haha and Huhu.
Mbh.3.46.2377 Unto that assembly came, O best of men, the Rudras and the Adityas and the Aswins and the Vasus.
Mbh.3.62.3016 O blessed one, may the Adityas and the Vasus, and the twin Aswins together with the Marutas protect thee, thy virtue being thy best guard'
Mbh.3.82.3985 The Adityas, the Vasus, the Rudras, the Sadhyas, the Maruts, the Gandharvas, and the Apsaras are ever present, O exalted one, in Pushkara.
Mbh.3.82.4053 In that tirtha, O bull of the Bharata race, there is a sacred lake of the Vasus.
Mbh.3.82.4054 By bathing there and drinking of its water, one becometh regarded of the Vasus.
Mbh.3.84.4546 There the gods with Brahma at their head, Rishis endued with wealth of asceticism, the Adityas, the Vasus, and the Rudras, all adore Janardana, in that tirtha, and Vishnu of wonderful deeds hath become known as Salagrama.
Mbh.3.85.4718 Desirous of obtaining merit, the Vasus, and the Sadhyas, the Adityas, the Maruts, the Aswins, and the Rishis equal unto celestials, all bathed in these tirthas.
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.3.90.4896 These all are visited by the Vasus, the Sadhyas, the Adityas, the Marutas, the Aswins and the illustrious Rishis resembling the celestials themselves.
Mbh.3.99.5227 Then Rama of Bhrigu's race beheld in the body of Dasaratha's son the Adityas with the Vasus, the Rudras, the Sadhyas with the Marutas, the Pitris, Hutasana, the stellar constellations and the planets, the Gandharvas, the Rakshasas, the Yakshas, the Rivers, the tirthas, those eternal Rishis identified with Brahma and called the Valkhilyas, the celestial Rishis, the Seas and Mountains, the Vedas with the Upanishads and Vashats and the sacrifices, the Samans in their living form, the Science of weapons, O Bharata, and the Clouds with rain and lightning, O Yudhishthira!
Mbh.3.118.6065 Then the king beheld the holy and delightful shrines of all the gods and of the Vasus, and of the hosts of wind and of the two celestial physicians and of Yama, son of the sun and of the lord of riches, and of Indra, and of Vishnu, and of the lord Creator and of Siva, and of the moon, and of the author of day, and of the lord of waters, and of the host of Sadhyas, and of Brahma, and of the forefathers, and of Rudra together with all his followers, and of the goddess of learning, and of the host of Siddhas, and of many immortal holy gods besides.
Mbh.3.134.6818 Ashtavakra said, Eight are the bags containing a hundred fold; eight is the number of the legs of the Sarabha, which preyeth upon lions; eight Vasus, as we hear, are amongst the celestials; and eight are the angles of yupa stake, in all sacrificial rites
Mbh.3.139.7082 And, O effulgent one, mayst thou have safety from all the celestials and the Asuras, and the Vasus.
Mbh.3.161.8178 And by having displayed his prowess at the proper place and time, Sakra with the Vasus hath obtained the dominion of heaven.
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.3.167.8443 Then I saw the Vasus, and the Rudras, and the Sadhyas with the Marutas, and the Adityas, and the two Aswins and worshipped them.
Mbh.3.185.9217 He who presenteth to a Brahmana, sesamum made up in the form of a cow, having horns made of gold, with money besides, and a brazen milk-pail, subsequently attaineth easily to the regions of the Vasus.
Mbh.3.187.9416 O tiger among men, having entered his stomach, as I wandered around, I also beheld the whole tribe of the gods with their chief Sakra, the Sadhyas, the Rudras, the Adityas, the Guhyakas, the Pitris, the Snakes and the Nagas, the feathery tribes, the Vasus, the Aswins, the Gandharvas, the Apsaras, the Yakshas, the Rishis, the hordes of the Daityas and the Danavas, and the Nagas also.
Mbh.3.230.11611 And the great Yaksha Amogha with his attendants, the Jambhaka Yakshas and other Rakshasas decorated with garlands of flowers, obtained a place in the right wing of his army; and many gods of wonderful fighting powers in company with the Vasus and the Rudras, also marched with the right division of his army.
Mbh.3.230.11653 And then the thirty-three crores of gods and all the powerful Marutas and the Sadhyas with the Vasus returned to the charge.
Mbh.3.306.15024 And may the Adityas and the Vasus, the Rudras and the Sadhyas, the Viswadevas and the Maruts, and the cardinal points with the great Indra and the regents presiding over them, and, indeed, all the celestials, protect thee in every place!
Mbh.3.311.15259 Hearing these words, Yudhishthira said, Art thou the foremost of the Rudras, or of the Vasus, or of the Marutas?
Mbh.3.312.15508 Art thou the foremost of the Vasus, or of the Rudras, or of the chief of the Maruts?
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.5.29.1227 Similarly, the constellations in the other world, by virtue of work, and the Rudras, the Adityas, the Vasus, king Yama, and Kuvera, and the Gandharvas, the Yakshas, and the celestial nymphs, all attained their present position by work.
Mbh.5.49.2789 The Maruts also with Indra, the Vasus with Agni, the Adityas, the Sadhyas, the seven celestial Rishis, the Gandharvas, Viswavasu, and the beautiful tribes of the Apsaras, all approached the ancient Grandsire.
Mbh.5.86.4082 The Vrishnis adore the wisdom of the intelligent Krishna, even as the Adityas, the Vasus, and the Rudras adore the wisdom of Vrihaspati.
Mbh.5.116.5263 Richer than all the wealthy kings of the earth, and resembling one of the Vasus themselves he became a king and giver of great wealth.
Mbh.5.128.5678 Indeed, O Bharata, when the population of the worlds was divided into two parties and was about to be slaughtered, the divine and holy Cause of the universe, viz, the Creator, said, The Asuras and the Daityas with the Danavas will be vanquished, and the Adityas, the Vasus, the Rudras and other dwellers of heaven will be victorious.
Mbh.5.131.5821 Here are all the Adityas, the Rudras, and the Vasus, with all the great Rishis.
Mbh.5.131.5825 And on his arms appeared the regents of the world, and from his mouth issued Agni, the Adityas, the Sadhyas, the Vasus, the Aswins, the Marutas, with Indra, and the Viswedevas.
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.5.157.6949 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.5.188.8435 Bhishma is one of the foremost of Vasus!
Mbh.6.34.1591 I am Sankara among the Rudras, the Lord of treasures among the Yakshas and the Rakshasas; I am Pavaka among the Vasus, and Meru among the peaked mountains.
Mbh.6.35.1637 Behold the Adityas, the Vasus, the Rudras, the Aswins, and the Maruts.
Mbh.6.35.1660 The Rudras, the Adityas, the Vasus, they that called the Siddhas, the Viswas, the Aswins, the Maruts, also the Ushmapas, the Gandharvas, the Yakshas, the Asuras, the hosts of Siddhyas, behold Thee and are all amazed.
Mbh.6.68.3709 Dwaipayana said of thee that thou art Vasudeva of the Vasus, the establisher of Sakra, and the God of gods and all creatures.
Mbh.6.97.5143 Then, O king, thy sons, surrounding Drona like the Vasus surrounding Vasava, rushed in the battle against Bhimasena.
Mbh.6.120.6586 Ascertaining this to be the resolve of Bhishma of immeasurable energy, the Rishis and the Vasus stationed in the firmament, said, That which hath been resolved by thee is approved by us also, O son!
Mbh.6.120.6592 The words spoken by the Rishis and the Vasus, however, O king, were not heard by any one save Bhishma himself.
Mbh.7.2.61 When he that was endued with prowess equal to that of the Vasus, he that was born of the energy of the Vasus, when he, that ruler of the earth, hath once more been united with the Vasus, grieve ye, therefore, for your possessions and children for this earth and the Kurus, and this host
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.7.33.1749 Yudhishthira said, Since protected by these tigers among men, these great bowmen endued with fierce might, these warriors that resemble the Sadhyas, the Rudras, or the Maruts, or are like the Vasus, or Agni or Aditya himself in prowess, thou venturest to pierce the invincible array of Drona, and since thou speakest so, let thy strength, O son of Subhadra be increased'
Mbh.7.74.3231 If the Siddhas, the Rudras, the Vasus, with the Aswins, the Maruts with Indra: at their head the Viswadevas with other gods, the Pitris, the Gandharvas, Garuda, the Ocean, the mountains, the firmament, Heaven, Earth, the point of the compass cardinal and subsidiary, and the regents of those points, all the creatures that are domestic and all that are wild, in fact if all the mobile and the immobile beings together, become the protectors of the ruler of the Sindhus, yet, O slayer of Madhu, shalt thou behold Jayadratha slain by me tomorrow in battle with my arrows!
Mbh.8.2.40 That hero endued with great energy and born of the Vasus themselves, who slew every day car-warriors clad in mail, that high-souled one unto whom Bhrigu's son had given the highest weapons, that warrior who in his childhood had been trained in the science of the bow by Rama, alas, even he hath been slain by Yajnasena's son Shikhandi protected by the Pandavas!
Mbh.8.87.5299 The Vasus, the Maruts, the Sadhyas, the Rudras, the Vishvedevas and the Ashvinis, and Agni and Indra and Soma and Pavana, and the ten points of the compass, became the partisans of Dhananjaya, while all the Adityas sided with Karna.
Mbh.8.87.5347 Let him obtain identity with the Vasus or the Maruts.
Mbh.9.42.3063 The seven Matris also were present there, O monarch, and the Sadhyas, the Viswedevas, the Maruts, the Vasus, the Rudras, the Adityas, the Siddhas, the Danavas, the birds, the self-born and adorable Brahman with his sons, and Vishnu, and Shakra, all went thither for beholding that child of unfading glory.

Mbh.9.43.3132 Similarly the Saddhyas, the Rudras, the Vasus, the Pitris, the Seas, the Rivers, and the Mountains, all endued with great might, gave commanders of forces, armed with lances and battle-axes and decked with diverse kinds of ornaments.
Mbh.9.48.3566 Asita then saw his guest pass through the regions of the Rudras, the Vasus and Brihaspati.
Mbh.12.15.617 Kala and Mrityu and Vayu and Kuvera and Surya, the Vasus, the Maruts, the Sadhyas, and the Viswadevas, O Bharata, are all slaughterers.
Mbh.12.21.927 For the Rudras with the Vasus and the Adityas, O scorcher of foes, and the Sadhyas and hosts of kings adopt this religion.
Mbh.12.50.2703 O mighty-armed Bhishma, thou art always spoken of by the Brahmanas as the ninth of the Vasus.
Mbh.12.50.2746 Behold, those deities and the Vasus, all endued with forms of fiery splendour, riding on their cars, are waiting for thee invisibly till the moment of the sun's entering on northerly course.
Mbh.12.63.3496 Those deities, viz, the Sadhyas, the Vasus, the Aswins, the Rudras, the Viswas, the Maruts, and the Siddhas, created in days of old by the first of gods, are all observant of Kshatriya duties.
Mbh.12.121.6906 Vasishtha was made the lord of the Brahmanas, and Jatavedas was made the chief of the Vasus.
Mbh.12.165.9828 That religion was accepted by the gods, with their preceptors, priests, the Adityas, the Vasus, the Rudras, the Sadhyas, the Maruts, the Aswins, Bhrigu, Atri, Angiras, the Siddhas, Kasyapa rich in penances, Vasishtha, Gautama, Agastya, Narada, Parvata, the Valikhilya Rishis, those other Rishis known under the names of Prabhasas, the Sikatas, the Ghritapas, the Somavayavyas, the Vaiswanaras, Marichipas, the Akrishtas, the Hansas, those born of Fire, the Vanaprasthas, and the Prasnis.
Mbh.12.197.11777 Those regions that are owned by the high-souled gods, that are of diverse aspects and colours, of diverse descriptions and productive of diverse fruits, and that are of great excellence, those ears again that: move at the will of the riders, those beautiful mansions and hells, those various pleasure-gardens embellished with golden lotuses, those regions that belong to the four Regents and Sukra and Vrihaspati and the Maruts and Viswedevas and Sadhyas and the Aswins, and the Rudras and the Adityas and the Vasus, and other denizens of heaven, are, O sire, spoken of as hells, when compared with the region of the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.206.12492 Dharma became father of the Vasus, the Rudras of immeasurable energy, the Viswedevas, the Sadhyas, and the Maruts, O Bharata.
Mbh.12.207.12576 The highly-blessed Vasus, eight in number, have formerly been enumerated by me.
Mbh.12.226.13772 At that time, accompanied by the Rudras, the Vasus, the Adityas, the Aswins, the celestial Rishis, the Gandharvas, the Siddhas, and other superior orders of beings, the puissant Sakra, seated in splendour on his four-tusked prince of elephants, called Airavata, made a progress through all the worlds.

Mbh.12.317.19749 If through the calves, it has been heard by us, that the man repairs to the regions of the Vasus.
Mbh.12.323.20596 Thither all the regenerate Rishis and royal sages and the Regents of the world and the Sadhyas along with the Vasus, and the Adityas, the Rudras, and Surya and Chandramas, and the Maruts, and the Oceans, and the Rivers and the Aswins, the Deities, the Gandharvas, and Narada and Parvata and the Gandharva Viswavasu, and the Siddhas, and the Apsaras.
Mbh.12.339.21888 Behold, the eight Vasus, those foremost of deities, are in my front, and see, Nasatya and Dasra, those two celestial physicians Aswini Kumars, are in my rear.
Mbh.12.340.22186 Having withdrawn the universe into Himself at the end of the Yuga, He goes to sleep, and awakening at the commencement of another Yuga, He once more creates the universe, Do you all bow unto that illustrious one who is possessed of high soul and who transcends the three attributes, who is unborn, whose form is the universe, and who is the abode or refuge of all the denizens of heaven, Do you bow unto Him who is the Supreme Lord of all creatures, who is the Lord of the Adityas, and of the Vasus as well.
Mbh.12.363.23893 On the occasion, again, of my dreadful encounter with Rama of Bhrigu's race on the field of Kurukshetra, the celestial Vasus, O king, recited this history to me
Mbh.13.1.93 All acts in this world and all abstentions, as also all their modifications, are said to be influenced by Kala, Surya, Soma, Vishnu, Water, Wind, the deity of a hundred sacrificer, Fire, Sky, Earth, Mitra and Parjanya, Aditi, and the Vasus, Rivers and Oceans, all existent and non-existent objects, are created and destroyed by Kala.

Mbh.13.57.5697 The regions of the Vasus become attainable to that man who gives away a cow with horns beautifully decorated with gold, accompanied with a brazen jar for milking, along with a piece of cloth embroidered with gold, a measure of sesame and a sum of money as Dakshina.

Mbh.13.84.7586 The Adityas, the Vasus, the Rudras, the Maruts, the Aswins, and the Sadhyas all became exceedingly afflicted in consequence of the prowess of that son of Diti.
Mbh.13.85.7805 From his smoke sprang the Vasus.
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.13.150.12610 They have sprung from Rudra and Anala and the Vasus.
Mbh.13.150.12697 Verily, having acquired them again from Vasishtha, Sakra and the Vasus went forth to battle and succeeded in subjugating the Danavas.
Mbh.13.158.13209 The Rudras, the Adityas, the Vasus, the Aswins, the Sadhyas, the Viswedevas, the diverse Maruts, Prajapati himself, the mother of the deities, viz, Aditi, and the seven Rishis, have all sprung from Krishna.

Mbh.13.167.13817 Do thou, O king, attain to the status of the Vasus, O thou of great splendour, thou hast not been guilty of a single transgression in this world.
Mbh.13.168.13865 He was one of the Vasus of great energy.
Mbh.13.168.13874 He was one of the Vasus, O goddess!
Mbh.14.8.213 And there the Rudras, the Saddhyas, Viswedevas, the Vasus, Yama, Varuna, and Kuvera with all his attendants, and the spirits and goblins, and the two Aswins, the Gandharvas, the Apsaras, the Yakshas, as also the celestial sages, the Sun-gods, as well as the gods presiding over the winds, and evil spirits of all sorts, worship the high-souled lord of Uma, possessed of diverse characteristics.
Mbh.14.10.283 Marutta said, Thou, O Purandara, the Viswadevas, the Vasus and the Aswins ye all know, that in this world there is no escape from the consequences of playing false to a friend; it is a great sin like unto that of murdering a Brahman.
Mbh.14.54.2396 So also, O regenerate one, know that the Rudras and the Vasus have sprung from me.
Mbh.14.81.3628 Formerly, O ruler of Earth, I heard this said by the Vasus while they were in the company of Ganga, O thou of great intelligence.
Mbh.14.81.3629 After the fall of Santanu's son, those deities, viz, the Vasus, coming to the banks of Ganga, bathed in her waters, and calling the goddess of that stream, they uttered these terrible words having the sanction of Bhagirathi herself, viz, Santanu's son Bhishma has been slain by Dhananjaya.
Mbh.14.81.3635 Repairing to the Vasus, he solicited them for thy sake, repeatedly gratifying them by every means in his power.
Mbh.14.81.3640 Thus addressed by the Vasus, he came back and informed me of what had happened.
Mbh.14.81.3641 Having learnt all this, O hero, I have freed thee from the curse of the Vasus even in this way.
Mbh.15.31.1280 Know that Ganga's son Bhishma was one of the Vasus that became born as a human being.
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.
