MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.79 Formerly, the spirited and virtuous Krishna-Dwaipayana, by the injunctions of Bhishma, the wise son of Ganga and of his own mother, became the father of three boys who were like the three fires by the two wives of Vichitra-virya; and having thus raised up Dhritarashtra, Pandu and Vidura, he returned to his recluse abode to prosecute his religious exercise.
Mbh.1.1.81 Vyasa hath fully represented the greatness of the house of Kuru, the virtuous principles of Gandhari, the wisdom of Vidura, and the constancy of Kunti.
Mbh.1.1.117 And being dissatisfied, he did nothing to prevent the disputes, but overlooked the gaming and sundry other horried unjustifiable transactions arising therefrom: and in spite of Vidura, Bhishma, Drona, and Kripa, the son of Saradwan, he made the Kshatriyas kill each other in the terrific war that ensued'
Mbh.1.1.132 When I heard that the five Pandavas with their mother Kunti had escaped from the house of lac, and that Vidura was engaged in the accomplishment of their designs, then, O Sanjaya, I had no hope of success.
Mbh.1.2.299 Then comes Viduragamana advent of Vidura, Rajyalabha acquirement of kingdom, Arjuna-banavasa exile of Arjuna and Subhadra-harana the carrying away of Subhadra.
Mbh.1.2.363 The high-souled Vyasa composed these hundred parvas of which the above is only an abridgement: having distributed them into eighteen, the son of Suta recited them consecutively in the forest of Naimisha as follows: In the Adi parva are contained Paushya, Pauloma, Astika, Adivansavatara, Samva, the burning of the house of lac, the slaying of Hidimba, the destruction of the Asura Vaka, Chitraratha, the Swayamvara of Draupadi, her marriage after the overthrow of rivals in war, the arrival of Vidura, the restoration, Arjuna's exile, the abduction of Subhadra, the gift and receipt of the marriage dower, the burning of the Khandava forest, and the meeting with the Asura-architect Maya.
Mbh.1.2.369 also the birth of the Pandavas; the plottings of Duryodhana to send the sons of Pandu to Varanavata, and the other dark counsels of the sons of Dhritarashtra in regard to the Pandavas; then the advice administered to Yudhishthira on his way by that well-wisher of the Pandavas, Vidura, in the mlechchha language, the digging of the hole, the burning of Purochana and the sleeping woman of the fowler caste, with her five sons, in the house of lac; the meeting of the Pandavas in the dreadful forest with Hidimba, and the slaying of her brother Hidimba by Bhima of great prowess.
Mbh.1.2.371 This parva treats of the journey of the Pandavas towards Panchala, the acquisition of Draupadi in the midst of all the Rajas, by Arjuna, after having successfully pierced the mark; and in the ensuing fight, the defeat of Salya, Kama, and all the other crowned heads at the hands of Bhima and Arjuna of great prowess; the ascertainment by Balarama and Krishna, at the sight of these matchless exploits, that the heroes were the Pandavas, and the arrival of the brothers at the house of the potter where the Pandavas were staying; the dejection of Drupada on learning that Draupadi was to be wedded to five husbands; the wonderful story of the five Indras related in consequence; the extraordinary and divinely-ordained wedding of Draupadi; the sending of Vidura by the sons of Dhritarashtra as envoy to the Pandavas; the arrival of Vidura and his sight to Krishna; the abode of the Pandavas in Khandava-prastha, and then their rule over one half of the kingdom; the fixing of turns by the sons of Pandu, in obedience to the injunction of Narada, for connubial companionship with Krishna.
Mbh.1.2.382 Then comes the third parva called Aranyaka relating to the forest This parva treats of the wending of the Pandavas to the forest and the citizens, following the wise Yudhishthira, Yudhishthira's adoration of the god of day; according to the injunctions of Dhaumya, to be gifted with the power of maintaining the dependent Brahmanas with food and drink: the creation of food through the grace of the Sun: the expulsion by Dhritarashtra of Vidura who always spoke for his master's good; Vidura's coming to the Pandavas and his return to Dhritarashtra at the solicitation of the latter; the wicked Duryodhana's plottings to destroy the forest-ranging Pandavas, being incited thereto by Karna; the appearance of Vyasa and his dissuasion of Duryodhana bent on going to the forest; the history of Surabhi; the arrival of Maitreya; his laying down to Dhritarashtra the course of action; and his curse on Duryodhana; Bhima's slaying of Kirmira in battle; the coming of the Panchalas and the princes of the Vrishni race to Yudhishthira on hearing of his defeat at the unfair gambling by Sakuni; Dhananjaya's allaying the wrath of Krishna; Draupadi's lamentations before Madhava; Krishna's cheering her; the fall of Sauva also has been here described by the Rishi; also Krishna's bringing Subhadra with her son to Dwaraka; and Dhrishtadyumna's bringing the son of Draupadi to Panchala; the entrance of the sons of Pandu into the romantic Dwaita wood; conversation of Bhima, Yudhishthira, and Draupadi; the coming of Vyasa to the Pandavas and his endowing Yudhishthira with the power of Pratismriti; then, after the departure of Vyasa, the removal of the Pandavas to the forest of Kamyaka; the wanderings of Arjuna of immeasurable prowess in search of weapons; his battle with Mahadeva in the guise of a hunter; his meeting with the lokapalas and receipt of weapons from them; his journey to the regions of Indra for arms and the consequent anxiety of Dhritarashtra; the wailings and lamentations of Yudhishthira on the occasion of his meeting with the worshipful great sage Brihadaswa.
Mbh.1.2.414 It was on this occasion that Vidura addressed to the wise king Dhritarashtra various counsels that were full of wisdom.
Mbh.1.2.491 Then Vidura, removing the distressed Dhritarashtra's affection for worldly things by reasons pointing to final release, consoled that wise monarch.
Mbh.1.2.529 In this, Dhritarashtra, abdicating the kingdom, and accompanied by Gandhari and Vidura went to the woods.
Mbh.1.2.533 In this Parva, Vidura after having leaned on virtue all his life attaineth to the most meritorious state.
Mbh.1.60.2883 Of sacred deeds and great fame, he begot Pandu and Dhritarashtra and Vidura in order to continue the line of Santanu.
Mbh.1.61.2916 And in all those persecutions of the Pandavas by their cousins, the Kurus, the high-minded Vidura attentively engaged himself neutralising those evil designs and rescuing the persecuted ones.
Mbh.1.61.2917 And as Sakra from the heavens keeps in happiness the world of men, so did Vidura always keep the Pandavas from evil.
Mbh.1.61.2921 And when they were leaving the city, Vidura gave them some idea of impending danger and how they could come out of it.
Mbh.1.61.2925 And causing a subterranean passage to be constructed, acting according to the directions of Vidura, they set fire to that house of lac and burnt Purochana their enemy and the spy of Duryodhana to death.
Mbh.1.63.3157 And for that curse Dharma was born a Sudra in the form of the learned Vidura of pure body who was perfectly sinless.
Mbh.1.63.3175 And from Dwaipayana also born, in the Sudra caste, the wise and intelligent Vidura, conversant with both religion and profit, and free from all sins.
Mbh.1.67.3507 And, O king, thou shouldst know that he who was known on earth as Vidura, who was the first of all virtuous men, who was the god of Justice himself, was the excellent and greatly fortunate son of the Rishi Atri.
Mbh.1.95.5301 Dwaipayana, consenting to this, begat three children, viz, Dhritarashtra, Pandu, and Vidura.
Mbh.1.95.5326 After some time those five Pandavas were taken by the ascetics of the woods to Hastinapura and there introduced to Bhishma and Vidura.
Mbh.1.95.5336 There an endeavour was made to burn them to death; but it proved abortive owing to the warning counsels of Vidura.
Mbh.1.106.5998 And, O king, the son thus begotten upon her by Krishna-Dwaipayana was afterwards known by the name of Vidura.
Mbh.1.106.6000 And Vidura was free from desire and passion and was conversant with the rules of government, and was the god of justice born on earth under the curse of the illustrious Rishi Mandavya.
Mbh.1.108.6052 Vaisampayana continued, Cursed for this fault by that illustrious Rishi, the god of justice had his birth as Vidura in the Sudra order.
Mbh.1.108.6053 And Vidura was well-versed in the doctrines of morality and also politics and worldly profit.
Mbh.1.108.6055 Possessed of great foresight and undisturbed tranquillity of mind, Vidura was ever devoted to the welfare of the Kurus
Mbh.1.109.6075 And Dhritarashtra and Pandu and Vidura of great intelligence were from their birth brought up by Bhishma, as if they were his own sons.
Mbh.1.109.6080 And Pandu, possessed of great prowess, excelled all men in archery while Dhritarashtra excelled all in personal strength, while in the three worlds there was no one equal to Vidura in devotion to virtue and in the knowledge of the dictates of morality.
Mbh.1.109.6081 And beholding the restoration of the extinct line of Santanu, the saying became current in all countries that among mothers of heroes, the daughters of the king of Kasi were the first; that among countries Kurujangala was the first; that among virtuous men, Vidura was the first; that among cities Hastinapura was the first.
Mbh.1.109.6082 Pandu became king, for Dhritarashtra, owing to the blindness, and Vidura, for his birth by a Sudra woman, did not obtain the kingdom.
Mbh.1.109.6083 One day Bhishma, the foremost of those acquainted with the duties of a statesman and dictates of morality, properly addressing Vidura conversant with the truth of religion and virtue, said as follows
Mbh.1.110.6093 Thus addressed, Vidura replied, Thou art our father and thou art our mother, too.
Mbh.1.114.6207 And he sent portion of his wealth to Vidura also.
Mbh.1.114.6219 Bringing her from her father's abode, Bhishma married her to Vidura of great wisdom.
Mbh.1.114.6220 And Vidura begot upon her many children like unto himself in accomplishments
Mbh.1.115.6251 The news of Duryodhana's birth was carried to Bhishma and the wise Vidura.
Mbh.1.115.6256 Then king Dhritarashtra in great fear, summoning Bhishma and Vidura and other well-wishers and all the Kurus, and numberless Brahmanas, addressed them and said, The oldest of those princes, Yudhishthira, is the perpetuator of our line.
Mbh.1.115.6261 As soon as these words were spoken, O Bharata, jackals and other carnivorous animals began to howl ominously And marking those frightful omens all around, the assembled Brahmanas and the wise Vidura replied, O king, O bull among men, when these frightful omens are noticeable at the birth of thy eldest son, it is evident that he shall be the exterminator of thy race.
Mbh.1.115.6268 When Vidura and those Brahmanas had stated so, king Dhritarashtra out of affection for his son had not the heart to follow that advice.
Mbh.1.119.6396 Vaisampayana continued, The king, having thus wept in sorrow, with a sigh looked at his two wives Kunti and Madri, and addressing them said, Let the princess of Kosala my mother, Vidura, the king with our friends, the venerable Satyavati, Bhishma, the priests of our family, illustrious Soma-drinking Brahmanas of rigid vows and all elderly citizens depending on us be informed, after being prepared for it, that Pandu hath retired into the woods to lead a life of asceticism'
Mbh.1.126.6767 And there also came out Bhishma, the son of Santanu, and Somadatta or Valhika and the royal sage Dhritarashtra endued with the vision of knowledge and Vidura himself and the venerable Satyavati and the illustrious princess of Kosala and Gandhari accompanied by the other ladies of the royal household.
Mbh.1.127.6789 SECTION CXXVII Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana continued, Dhritarashtra then said, O Vidura, celebrate the funeral ceremonies of that lion among kings viz, Pandu, and of Madri also, in right royal style.
Mbh.1.127.6795 Vaisampayana continued, Then Vidura, O Bharata, saying, So be it' in consultation with Bhishma, fixed upon a sacred spot for the funeral rites of Pandu.
Mbh.1.127.6805 And Bhishma, and Vidura, and the Pandavas, also all wept aloud.
Mbh.1.127.6816 And Bhishma, the son of Santanu, and the wise Vidura, and the others also that were there, became disconsolate.
Mbh.1.127.6817 Thus weeping, Bhishma, Vidura, Dhritarashtra, the Pandavas and the Kuru ladies, all performed the watery ceremony of the king.
Mbh.1.129.6925 Having said this in affliction to her eldest son, she summoned Vidura, and said, O illustrious Kshattri, Bhimasena is missing!
Mbh.1.129.6933 Vidura replied, Blessed dame, say not so!
Mbh.1.129.6938 Vaisampayana continued, The wise Vidura, having said this unto Kunti, returned to his abode, while Kunti, in great anxiety, continued to stay at home with her children.
Mbh.1.129.6955 And lest negligence might occur on the part of the sons of Kunti, Vidura continually offered them sage advice.
Mbh.1.129.6962 And though every one of these contrivances was fully known to the Pandavas, yet in accordance with the advice of Vidura they suppressed their indignation.
Mbh.1.136.7282 SECTION CXXXVI Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, O thou of Bharata's race, beholding the sons of Dhritarashtra and Pandu accomplished in arms, Drona, O monarch, addressed king Dhritarashtra, in the presence of Kripa, Somadatta, Valhika, the wise son of Ganga Bhishma, Vyasa, and Vidura, and said, O best of Kuru kings, thy children have completed their education.
Mbh.1.136.7287 O Kshatri Vidura, do all that Drona sayeth.
Mbh.1.136.7289 Then Vidura, giving the necessary assurance to the king, went out to do what he was bid.
Mbh.1.136.7315 And Vidura described to Dhritarashtra and the mother of the Pandavas Kunti and Gandhari, all the feats of the princes
Mbh.1.137.7333 And his ears being filled with that uproar, that first of men, Dhritarashtra, asked Vidura in delight, O Kshatri, what is this great uproar for, like unto that of the troubled ocean, arising all on a sudden and rending the very heavens'
Mbh.1.137.7334 Vidura replied, O mighty monarch, the son of Pandu and Pritha, Phalguna, clad in mail hath entered the lists.
Mbh.1.138.7388 And by the help of female attendants, Vidura, versed in the lore of all duties, revived the insensible Kunti by sprinkling sandal-paste and water on her person.
Mbh.1.143.7718 But that wise Vidura, capable of reading the heart by external signs, ascertained the intention of these wicked persons by observing their countenances alone.
Mbh.1.143.7719 Then the sinless Vidura, of soul enlightened by true knowledge, and devoted to the good of the Pandavas, came to the conclusion that Kunti with her children should fly away from her foes.
Mbh.1.143.7725 Then leaving the boat according to the advice of Vidura, the Pandavas took with them the wealth that had been given to them while at Varanavata by their enemies and safely entered the deep woods.
Mbh.1.143.7729 And thus also were the illustrious Pandavas, by the advice of Vidura, saved with their mother.
Mbh.1.143.7737 Hearing this, Dhritarashtra with his children, made a show of grief, and along with his relatives, including Kshattri Vidura and Bhishma the foremost of the Kurus, performed the last honours of the Pandavas'
Mbh.1.143.7745 The Pandavas too counteracted all those contrivances one after another, and in obedience to the counsels of Vidura, never spoke of them afterwards.
Mbh.1.144.7790 Kshattri Vidura is dependent on us for his means of life, though he is secretly with the foe.
Mbh.1.145.7805 Then addressing Bhishma, the son of Santanu, the wise Vidura, Drona, Valhika, the Kaurava, Somadatta, Kripa, Aswatthaman, Bhurisravas, and the other councillors, and Brahmanas and ascetics, and the priests and the citizens, and the illustrious Gandhari, he said slowly and humbly, With our friends and followers we go to the delightful and populous town of Varanavata at the command of Dhritarashtra.
Mbh.1.147.7829 While they were on the point of entering their cars, they touched, in great sorrow, the feet of Bhishma, of king Dhritarashtra, of the illustrious Drona, of Kripa, of Vidura and of the other elders of the Kuru race.
Mbh.1.147.7831 And Vidura of great wisdom and the other bulls among the Kurus and the citizens also, from great affliction, followed those tigers among men to some distance.
Mbh.1.147.7847 And after the citizens had ceased following the Pandavas, Vidura, conversant with all the dictates of morality, desirous of awakening the eldest of the Pandavas to a sense of his dangers, addressed him in these words.
Mbh.1.147.7848 The learned Vidura, conversant with the jargon of the Mlechchhas, addressed the learned Yudhishthira who also was conversant with the same jargon, in the words of the Mlechchha tongue, so as to be unintelligible to all except Yudhishthira.
Mbh.1.147.7857 Thus addressed, Pandu's son, Yudhishthira the just replied unto Vidura, that foremost of all learned men, saying, I have understood thee'
Mbh.1.147.7858 Then Vidura, having instructed the Pandavas and followed them thus far, walked around them and bidding them farewell returned to his own abode.
Mbh.1.147.7859 When the citizens and Bhishma and Vidura had all ceased following, Kunti approached Yudhishthira and said, The words that Kshattri said unto thee in the midst of many people so indistinctly as if he did not say anything, and thy reply also to him in similar words and voice, we have not understood.
Mbh.1.147.7861 Yudhishthira replied, The virtuous Vidura said unto me that we should know that the mansion for our accommodation at Varanavata hath been built of inflammable materials.
Mbh.1.147.7863 The reply that I gave unto Vidura was, I have understood thee'
Mbh.1.148.7879 But, O son of Pritha, Vidura of great intelligence, knew of this danger, and, therefore, hath warned me of it beforehand.
Mbh.1.149.7898 SECTION CXLIX Jatugriha Parva continued Vaisampayana continued, A friend of Vidura's, well-skilled in mining, coming unto the Pandavas, addressed them in secret, saying, I have been sent by Vidura and am a skilful miner.
Mbh.1.149.7901 From the trust he reposeth in me Vidura hath said unto me, Go thou unto the Pandavas and accomplish thou their good.
Mbh.1.149.7905 O son of Pandu, Vidura also told thee something in the Mlechchha tongue to which thou also didst reply in same language.
Mbh.1.149.7907 Hearing these words, Yudhishthira, the truthful son of Kunti replied, O amiable one, I now know thee as a dear and trusted friend of Vidura, true and ever devoted to him.
Mbh.1.149.7908 There is nothing that the learned Vidura doth not know.
Mbh.1.149.7912 O, protect us as the learned Vidura ever protecteth us.
Mbh.1.149.7919 But this unholy contrivance of Duryodhana was known to Vidura from the first, and he it was who enlightened us beforehand.
Mbh.1.151.7954 SECTION CLI Jatugriha Parva continued Vaisampayana said, About this time, the learned Vidura had sent into those woods a man of pure character and much trusted by him.
Mbh.1.151.7956 The design that the wicked Duryodhana had formed had been, through his spies, known to Vidura of great intelligence, and, therefore, he had sent that prudent person unto the Pandavas.
Mbh.1.151.7957 Sent by Vidura unto them, he showed the Pandavas on the sacred banks of the Ganga a boat with engines and flags, constructed by trusted artificers and capable of withstanding wind and wave and endued with the speed of the tempest or of thought.
Mbh.1.151.7958 He then addressed the Pandavas in these words to show that he had really been sent by Vidura, O Yudhishthira, he said, listen to these words the learned Vidura had said unto thee as a proof of the fact that I come from him.
Mbh.1.151.7961 By these credentials know me to be the person who has been truly sent by Vidura and to be also his trusted agent.
Mbh.1.151.7962 Vidura, conversant with everything, hath again said, O son of Kunti, thou shalt surely defeat in battle Karna, and Duryodhana with his brothers, and Sakuni'
Mbh.1.151.7965 Addressing them again, he said, Vidura having smelt your heads and embraced you mentally, hath said again that in commencing your auspicious journey and going alone you should never be careless'
Mbh.1.151.7966 Saying these words unto those heroic princes, the person sent by Vidura took those bulls among men over to the other side of the Ganga in his boat.
Mbh.1.151.7968 The illustrious Pandavas also sending through that person some message to Vidura, began, after having crossed the Ganga, to proceed with haste and in great secrecy
Mbh.1.152.7973 There is little doubt that even Bhishma, the son of Santanu, and Drona and Vidura and Kripa and other Kauravas have not, any of them, followed the dictates of duty.
Mbh.1.152.7977 Then the miner sent by Vidura, while removing the ashes, covered the hole he had dug with those ashes in such a way that it remained unnoticed by all who had gone there.
Mbh.1.152.7993 The citizens also wept for the Pandavas but Vidura did not weep much, because he knew the truth.
Mbh.1.201.9976 Then Vidura, having learnt that Draupadi had been won by the Pandavas and that the sons of Dhritarashtra had come back to Hastinapura in shame, their pride humiliated, became filled with joy.
Mbh.1.201.9978 Hearing those words of Vidura, the son of Vichitravirya, wondering, said in great glee, What good luck, O Vidura!
Mbh.1.201.9983 It was then that Vidura told the monarch that Draupadi had chosen the Pandavas for her lords, and that those heroes were all alive and at peace, and that they had been received with great respect by king Drupada.
Mbh.1.201.9985 Hearing these words of Vidura, Dhritarashtra said, Those children are to me as dear as they were to Pandu.
Mbh.1.201.9992 Vaisampayana continued, Having heard these words of the monarch, Vidura said, O king, let thy understanding remain so without change for a hundred years'
Mbh.1.201.9993 Having said this Vidura returned to his own abode.
Mbh.1.201.9995 Addressing the monarch, they said, We cannot, O king, speak of any transgression in the presence of Vidura!
Mbh.1.201.9998 Dost thou regard the prosperity of thy foes as if it were thy own, that thou hast been applauding the Pandavas, O foremost of men, in the presence of Vidura?
Mbh.1.202.10003 But I do not wish to inform Vidura of it even by a change of muscle.
Mbh.1.202.10005 Now that Vidura hath gone away, this is the time, O Suyodhana Duryodhana, for telling me what thou hast hit upon, and what, O Radheya Karna, thou too hast hit upon'
Mbh.1.203.10073 But let Bhishma, and Drona, and Vidura, and you two, take counsel together and adopt that proposal which may lead to our benefit'
Mbh.1.206.10152 SECTION CCVII Viduragamana Parva continued Vaisampayana said, After Drona had ceased, Vidura spoke, saying, O monarch, thy friends without doubt, are saying unto thee what is for thy good.
Mbh.1.207.10192 SECTION CCVIII Viduragamana Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Hearing these various speeches, Dhritarashtra said, The learned Bhishma, the son of Santanu, and the illustrious Rishi Drona, and thyself also O Vidura, have said the truth and what also is most beneficial to me.
Mbh.1.207.10201 Vaisampayana continued, Then Vidura, at the command of Dhritarashtra, repaired, O Bharata, unto Yajnasena and the Pandavas.
Mbh.1.207.10203 Arrived at Drupada's abode, Vidura conversant with every rule of morality and deep in every science, properly accosted the monarch and waited upon him.
Mbh.1.207.10204 Drupada received Vidura in proper form and they both enquired after each other's welfare.
Mbh.1.207.10205 Vidura then saw there the Pandavas and Vasudeva.
Mbh.1.207.10207 The Pandavas also along with Vasudeva, in due order, worshipped Vidura of immeasurable intelligence.
Mbh.1.207.10208 But Vidura, O king, in the name of Dhritarashtra repeatedly enquired with great affection after their welfare.
Mbh.1.207.10210 Possessed of immeasurable intelligence, the modest Vidura then, in the presence of the Pandavas and Keshava, addressed the well-behaved Drupada thus: With thy ministers and sons, O monarch, listen to what I say.
Mbh.1.208.10225 SECTION CCIX Viduragamana Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Hearing these words of Vidura, Drupada said, It is even so as thou, O Vidura of great wisdom, hast said.
Mbh.1.208.10238 Vaisampayana continued, Commanded by the illustrious Drupada, the Pandavas, then, O king, and Krishna and Vidura, taking with them Krishna, the daughter of Drupada, and the renowned Kunti, journeyed towards the city called after the elephant, stopping at various places along the way for purposes of pleasure and enjoyment.
Mbh.2.32.1417 Then that bull among men, king Yudhishthira despatched Nakula the son of Pandu unto Hastinapura to bring Bhishma and Drona, Dhritarashtra and Vidura and Kripa and those amongst his cousins that were well-disposed towards him
Mbh.2.33.1421 And Dhritarashtra and Bhishma and Vidura of high intelligence; and all Kaurava brothers with Duryyodhana at their head; and Suvala the king of Gandhara and Sakuni endued with great strength; and Achala, and Vrishaka, and Karna that foremost of all charioteers; and Salya endued with great might and the strong Valhika; and Somadatta, and Bhuri of the Kuru race, and Bhurisravas and Sala; and Aswatthama, Kripa, Drona, and Jayadratha, the ruler of Sindhu; and Yajnasena with his sons, and Salya that lord of earth and that great car warrior king Bhagadatta of Pragjyotisha accompanied by all Mlechcha tribes inhabiting the marshy regions on the sea-shore; and many mountain kings, and king Vrihadvala; and Vasudeva the king of the Paundrayas, and the kings of Vanga and Kalinga; and Akastha and Kuntala and the kings of the Malavas and the Andhrakas; and the Dravidas and the Singhalas and the king of Kashmira, and king Kuntibhoja of great energy and king Gauravahana, and all the other heroic kings of Valhika; and Virata with his two sons, and Mavella endued with great might; and various kings and princes ruling in various countries; and, O Bharata king Sisupala endued with great energy and invincible in battle accompanied by his son, all of them came to the sacrifice of the son of Pandu.
Mbh.2.34.1447 Vidura otherwise called Kshatta, conversant with every rule of morality, became the disburser.
Mbh.2.48.2024 And when I am dead, O king, thou wilt become happy with Vidura.
Mbh.2.48.2029 And, O monarch, king Dhritarashtra having made this resolution for the pacification of Duryodhana, sent messengers unto Vidura for summoning him.
Mbh.2.48.2030 For without taking counsel with Vidura never did the monarch form any resolution.
Mbh.2.48.2032 The intelligent Vidura, however, as soon as he heard of it, knew that the arrival of Kali was at hand.
Mbh.2.48.2034 And Vidura approaching his illustrious eldest brother and bowing down unto his feet, said these words: O exalted king, I do not approve of this resolution that thou hast formed.
Mbh.2.48.2041 And, O Vidura, I tell that even this is my resolution.
Mbh.2.48.2044 Hearing these words of Dhritarashtra and concluding that his race was doomed, Vidura in great sorrow went unto Bhishma with great wisdom
Mbh.2.49.2050 Ascertaining the opinion of Vidura, Dhritarashtra the son of Amvika, calling Duryodhana told him again in private, O son of Gandhari, have nothing to do with dice.
Mbh.2.49.2051 Vidura doth not speak well of it.
Mbh.2.49.2053 I also regard what Vidura sayeth as exceedingly beneficial for me.
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.2.49.2056 And O son, I always accept what Vidura adviseth.
Mbh.2.49.2057 O king, as the wise Uddhava is ever regarded amongst the Vrishnis, so is Vidura possessed of great intelligence esteemed as the foremost of the Kurus.
Mbh.2.55.2270 Dhritarashtra said, I am obedient to the counsels of my brother, the illustrious Vidura.
Mbh.2.55.2272 Duryodhana said, Vidura is always engaged in doing good to the sons of Pandu.
Mbh.2.55.2294 Even this was foreseen by the learned Vidura ever treading the path of truth and wisdom.
Mbh.2.55.2300 Then king Dhritarashtra, possessed of learning, summoning Vidura the chief of his ministers, said, Repairing, to Khandavaprastha, bring prince Yudhishthira here without loss of time.
Mbh.2.56.2303 Vidura, however, that foremost of intelligent men, approved not his brother's words and spoke thus, I approve not, O king, of this command of thine.
Mbh.2.56.2311 Therefore, O Vidura, going unto king Yudhishthira at my command, bring thou soon that invincible son of Kunti
Mbh.2.57.2312 SECTION LVII Vaisampayana said, Vidura then, thus commanded against his will by king Dhritarashtra, set out, with the help of horses of high mettle and endued with great speed and strength, and quiet and patient, for the abode of the wise sons of Pandu.
Mbh.2.57.2313 Possessed of great intelligence, Vidura proceeded by the way leading to the capital of the Pandavas.
Mbh.2.57.2315 And coming to the palace which was even like unto the mansion of Kuvera himself, the virtuous Vidura approached Yudhishthira, the son of Dharma.
Mbh.2.57.2316 Then the illustrious Ajamida devoted to truth and having no enemy on earth, reverentially saluted Vidura, and asked him about Dhritarashtra and his sons.
Mbh.2.57.2321 Vidura said, The illustrious king, with his sons, is well and happy, and surrounded by his relatives he reigneth even like Indra himself.
Mbh.2.57.2334 Vidura said, I know that gambling is the root of misery, and I strove to dissuade the king from it.
Mbh.2.57.2338 Tell us, O Vidura, who they are and with whom we shall have to play, staking hundreds upon hundreds of our possessions'
Mbh.2.57.2339 Vidura said, O monarch, Sakuni, the king of Gandhara, an adept at dice, having great skill of hand and desperate in stakes, Vivingati, king Chitrasena, Satyavrata, Purumitra and Jaya, these, O king, are there'
Mbh.2.57.2345 Thou art our master, O Vidura.
Mbh.2.57.2350 Vaisampayana continued, King Yudhishthira the just having said this unto Vidura, commanded that preparations for his journey might be made without loss of time.
Mbh.2.59.2425 And, O Bharata, Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and the high-souled Vidura with cheerless hearts sat behind.
Mbh.2.61.2470 SECTION LXI Vaisampayana said, During the course of this gambling, certain to bring about utter ruin on Yudhishthira, Vidura, that dispeller of all doubts, addressing Dhritarashtra said, O great king, O thou of the Bharata race, attend to what I say, although my words may not be agreeable to thee, like medicine to one that is ill and about to breathe his last.
Mbh.2.62.2496 SECTION LXII Vidura said, Gambling is the root of dissensions.
Mbh.2.63.2520 We know, O Vidura, of whom thou art really fond.
Mbh.2.63.2544 Tell us not harsh words always, O Vidura.
Mbh.2.63.2558 Therefore, O Vidura, go whither-so-ever thou pleasest.
Mbh.2.63.2560 Vidura addressing Dhritarashtra, said, O monarch, tell us impartially like a witness what thou thinkest of the conduct of those who abandon their serving-men thus for giving instruction to them.
Mbh.2.64.2651 And Vidura holding his head between his hands sat like one that had lost his reason.
Mbh.2.65.2663 Vidura said, Dost thou not know, O wretch, that by uttering such harsh words thou art tying thyself with cords?
Mbh.2.66.2693 It is Vidura alone that raveth in fear.
Mbh.2.66.2811 How is that Bhishma and Dhritarashtra, both of whom are the oldest of the Kurus, as also the high-souled Vidura, do not say anything!
Mbh.2.66.2877 Then Vidura, that master of the science of morality, waving his hands and silencing every one, spake these words, Ye that are in this assembly, Draupadi having put her question is weeping helplessly.
Mbh.2.66.2922 Vidura continued, Let all the persons, therefore, present in this assembly hearing these high truths of morality, reflect upon what should be the answer to the question asked by Draupadi.
Mbh.2.66.2923 Vaisampayana continued, The kings that were there hearing these words of Vidura, answered not a word, yet Karna alone spoke unto Dussasana, telling him.
Mbh.2.68.2984 Vaisampayana continued, Unto Bhima who had spoken these words Bhishma and Drona and Vidura said, Forbear, O Bhima.
Mbh.2.69.2986 SECTION LXX Karna said, Of all the persons in the assembly, three, viz, Bhishma, Vidura, and the preceptor of the Kurus Drona appear to be independent; for they always speak of their master as wicked, always censure him, and never wish for his prosperity.
Mbh.2.69.3010 Vidura then, addressing everybody, said, Ye kings of Pratipa's race, behold the great danger that ariseth from Bhimasena.
Mbh.2.69.3021 Duryodhana, hearing Vidura thus speak, said, I am willing to abide by the words of Bhima, of Arjuna and of the twins.
Mbh.2.69.3029 And Vidura conversant with everything and the daughter of Suvala, both understood the meaning of those terrible sounds.
Mbh.2.69.3032 Then Gandhari and the learned Vidura beholding that frightful omen, represented everything, in great affliction, unto the king.
Mbh.2.71.3096 O king those amongst the Kurus that have thee for their ruler, and the intelligent Vidura conversant with every branch of learning for their counsellor, have, indeed, nothing to grieve for.
Mbh.2.72.3133 Vaisampayana continued, Then Drona, Somadatta and Valhika, Gautama, Vidura, the son of Drona, and the mighty son of Dhritarashtra by his Vaisya wife, Bhurisravas, and Bhishma, and that mighty warrior Vikarna, all said, Let not the play commence.
Mbh.2.73.3136 SECTION LXXIV Vaisampayana said, O monarch, it was then that the virtuous Gandhari, afflicted with grief on account of her affection for her sons, addressed king Dhritarashtra and said, When Duryodhana was born, Vidura of great intelligence had said, It is well to send this disgrace of the race to the other world.
Mbh.2.76.3243 SECTION LXXVII Yudhishthira said, I bid farewell unto all the Bharatas, unto my old grand-sire Bhishma, king Somadatta, the great king Vahlika, Drona, Kripa, all the other kings, Aswathaman, Vidura, Dhritarashtra, all the sons of Dhritarashtra, Yayutsu, Sanjaya, and all the courtiers, I bid fare well, all of ye and returning again I shall see you
Mbh.2.76.3246 Vidura then said, The reverend Pritha is a princess by birth.
Mbh.2.76.3257 Vidura replied, O Yudhishthira, O bull of the Bharata race, know this to be my opinion, that one that is vanquished by sinful means need not be pained by such defeat.
Mbh.2.76.3276 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by Vidura, Yudhishthira the son of Pandu, of prowess incapable of being baffled, saying, So be it' bowing low unto Bhishma and Drona, went away
Mbh.2.77.3337 And Vidura himself also much afflicted, consoling the distressed Kunti with reasons, and led her slowly to his house.
Mbh.2.77.3341 And anxiously meditating on everything, and with mind deprived of its equanimity through grief, he sent a messenger unto Vidura, saying, Let Kshatta come to me without a moment's delay'
Mbh.2.77.3342 At this summons, Vidura quickly came to Dhritarashtra's palace.
Mbh.2.78.3344 SECTION LXXIX Vaisampayana said, As soon as Vidura endued with great foresight came unto him king Dhritarashtra, the son of Amvika, timidly asked his brother, How doth Yudhishthira, the son of Dharma, proceed along?
Mbh.2.78.3350 Vidura replied, Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, hath gone away covering his face with his cloth.
Mbh.2.78.3356 Dhritarashtra asked, Tell me, O Vidura, why is it that the Pandavas are leaving Hastinapore in such varied guise
Mbh.2.78.3357 Vidura replied, Though persecuted by thy sons and robbed of his kingdom and wealth the mind of the wise king Yudhishthira the just hath not yet deviated from the path of virtue.
Mbh.2.78.3380 Vaisampayana continued, And, O monarch, while king Dhritarashtra and the wise Vidura were thus talking with each other, there appeared in that assembly of the Kauravas and before the eyes of all, the best of the celestial Rishis.
Mbh.2.79.3416 Forbidden by Bhishma, by Drona, and by Vidura, thy wicked-minded and shameless son Duryodhana sent his Suta messenger commanding him to bring into court the beloved and virtuous wife of the Pandavas.
Mbh.2.79.3441 It was then that at the advice of Vidura I addressed Krishna and said, I will grant thee boons, O Krishna, indeed, whatever thou wouldst ask?
Mbh.2.79.3444 It was then that Vidura told me, Even this will prove the destruction of the Bharata race, viz, this dragging of Krishna into the court.
Mbh.2.79.3458 It was thus, O son of Gavalgani, that Vidura addressed me in words of both virtue and profit.
Mbh.3.1.15 And the citizens learning of their departure became overwhelmed with sorrow, and began to censure Bhishma and Vidura and Drona and Gautama.
Mbh.3.1.44 Our grandfather Bhishma, the king Dhritarashtra, Vidura, my mother and most of my well-wishers, are all in the city of Hastinapura.
Mbh.3.4.279 And seated at his ease the king addressed these words to the virtuous Vidura of profound intelligence, Thy understanding is as clear as that of Bhargava
Mbh.3.4.282 O Vidura, things having thus taken their course, what should we do now?
Mbh.3.4.285 Vidura said, The three-fold purposes, O king viz, profit, pleasure, and salvation, have their foundations in virtue, and the sages say that a kingdom also standeth on virtue as its basis.
Mbh.3.4.310 Dhritarashtra said, These words, O Vidura, then thou hast spoken in this assembly, with reference to the Pandavas and myself, are for their good but not for ours.
Mbh.3.4.317 O Vidura, all that thou sayest is crooked, although I hold thee in high esteem.
Mbh.3.4.321 And Vidura, saying This race is doomed' went away to where the sons of Pritha were
Mbh.3.5.326 And Vidura always longing to see the Pandavas, went in a single car to the Kamyaka woods abounding in every good thing.
Mbh.3.5.328 And seeing Vidura approach from a distance with swift steps, the virtuous king addressed brother, Bhimasena, saying, With what message doth Kshatta come to us?
Mbh.3.5.333 Vaisampayana said, O king, the Pandavas then rose up and welcomed Vidura.
Mbh.3.5.334 And received by them, that descendant of the Ajamida line Vidura sat in their midst and made the usual enquiries.
Mbh.3.5.335 And after Vidura had rested awhile, those bulls among men asked him the reason of his coming.
Mbh.3.5.336 And Vidura began to relate unto them in detail everything connected with the bearing of Dhritarashtra the son of Amvika'
Mbh.3.5.337 Vidura said, O Ajatasatru, Dhritarashtra called me, his dependant, before him and honouring me duly said, Things have fared thus.
Mbh.3.6.357 SECTION VI Vaisampayana said, O king, after Vidura had gone to the abode of the Pandavas, Dhritarashtra, O Bharata, of profound wisdom, repented of his action.
Mbh.3.6.358 And thinking of the great intelligence of Vidura in matters connected with both war and peace, and also of the aggrandisement of the Pandavas in the future, Dhritarashtra, pained at the recollection of Vidura, having approached the door of the hall of state fell down senseless in the presence of the monarchs in waiting And regaining consciousness, the king rose from the ground and thus addressed Sanjaya standing by, My brother and friend is even like the god of justice himself!
Mbh.3.6.362 And burning in repentance, and overwhelmed with sorrow at the recollection of Vidura, the king, from brotherly affection, again addressed Sanjaya saying, O Sanjaya, go thou and ascertain whether my brother, expelled by my wretched self through anger, liveth still!
Mbh.3.6.366 And arriving without loss of time at the forest where the sons of Pandu dwelt, he beheld Yudhishthira clad in deer-skin, seated with Vidura, in the midst of Brahmanas by thousands and guarded by his brothers, even like Purandara in the midst of the celestials!
Mbh.3.6.372 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by Sanjaya, the intelligent Vidura, ever attached to his relatives, with the permission of Yudhishthira returned to the city named after the elephant.
Mbh.3.6.373 And after he had approached the king, Dhritarashtra of great energy, the son of Amvika, addressed him, saying, From my good luck alone, O Vidura, thou, O sinless one, of conversant with morality, hast come here remembering me!
Mbh.3.6.375 And the king then took Vidura on his lap and smelt his head, and said, Forgive me, O sinless one, the words in which thou wert addressed by me'
Mbh.3.6.376 And Vidura said, O king, I have forgiven thee.
Mbh.3.6.383 Vaisampayana continued, And addressing each other thus in apologetic speeches, the two illustrious brothers, Vidura and Dhritarashtra, felt themselves greatly happy
Mbh.3.7.384 SECTION VII Vaisampayana said, Hearing that Vidura had returned, and that the king had consoled him, the evil-minded son of Dhritarashtra began to burn in grief.
Mbh.3.7.385 His understanding clouded by ignorance, he summoned the son of Suvala, and Karna and Dussasana, and addressed them saying, The learned Vidura, the minister of the wise Dhritarashtra, hath returned!
Mbh.3.7.387 So long as this Vidura doth not succeed in inducing the king to bring them back, do ye all think of what may benefit me!
Mbh.3.8.422 Thou art as honest as the wise Vidura, or Bhishma, or ourselves, or Kripa, or Drona, O thou of great wisdom, dissension with one's own kin are forbidden, sinful and reprehensible!
Mbh.3.8.429 But what do Bhishma and Drona and Vidura think?
Mbh.3.9.433 Neither Bhishma, nor Drona, nor Vidura, nor Gandhari liked this game at dice.
Mbh.3.9.462 And as my son Pandu is to me, so art thou, O son, and so also Vidura of profound wisdom!
Mbh.3.10.470 Indeed, what thou considerest to be beneficial for the Kurus was pointed out to me, O Muni, by Vidura and Bhishma and Drona.
Mbh.3.10.510 After I have gone away, Vidura will relate everything unto thee'
Mbh.3.11.515 Vidura said, Listen to the story of that feat of Bhimasena of super human achievements!
Mbh.3.11.541 Vidura continued, Kirmira said unto Yudhishthira, By good luck it is that fate hath accomplished today my long-accomplished desire!
Mbh.3.11.553 Vidura continued, Thus addressed by the Rakshasa, the virtuous Yudhishthira, steadfast in his pledges, said, It can never be so, and in anger rebuked the Rakshasa'
Mbh.3.11.586 Vidura said, It was thus, O lord of men, that Kirmira was slain in combat by Bhima, in obedience, O Kaurava, to the commands of Yudhishthira the just!
Mbh.3.29.1407 Our grandsire, the son of Santanu, will worship peace; Krishna, the son of Devaki, will worship peace; the preceptor Drona and Vidura called Kshatri will both speak of peace; Kripa and Sanjaya also will preach peace.
Mbh.3.51.2580 Dhritarashtra said, What Vidura told me at the time of the game at dice, If thou seekest, O king, to vanquish the Pandavas at dice, then certainly a terrible blood-shed ending in the destruction of all the Kurus will be the result' I think it is about to be realised.
Mbh.3.51.2581 As Vidura told me of old, without doubt a terrible battle will take place, as soon as the pledged period of the Pandavas expireth
Mbh.3.247.12243 What will Bhishma and Drona, Kripa, and Drona's son, Vidura and Sanjaya, Vahuka and Somadatta and other revered seniors, what will the principal men of the other orders and men of independent professions, say to me and what shall I say unto them in reply?
