MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.5.2.48 Let him respectfully salute Bhishma the heroic scion of Kuru's race, and the magnanimous son of Vichitravirya, and Drona along with his son, and Vidura and Kripa, and the king of Gandhara, along with the Suta's son.
Mbh.5.6.145 Though instructed by Vidura he yet follows his son!
Mbh.5.6.150 Vidura also will make use of those words of yours and will thus alienate the hearts of Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and others.
Mbh.5.20.845 SECTION XX Vaisampayana said, Then Drupada's priest, having approached the Kaurava chief, was honoured by Dhritarashtra as also by Bhishma and Vidura.
Mbh.5.26.1087 Duryodhana disregarded the words of Vidura, the best of his well-wishers, as if the latter were hostile to him.
Mbh.5.26.1089 Indeed, on account of his fondness for his son, he would not pay heed to Vidura, who, out of all the Kurus, is the wisest and best of all his well-wishers, possessing vast learning, clever in speech, and righteous in act.
Mbh.5.26.1092 Even then, O Sanjaya, when I was engaged in that game of dice I thought that the destruction of the Kurus was at hand, for when speaking those wise and excellent words Vidura obtained no praise from Dhritarashtra.
Mbh.5.26.1093 Then, O charioteer, did trouble overtake the Kurus when they disregarded the words of Vidura.
Mbh.5.26.1098 So I do not see, though I think about it, how there can be prosperity for the Kurus and the Srinjayas when Dhritarashtra hath taken the throne from others, and the far seeing Vidura hath been banished elsewhere.
Mbh.5.29.1277 Carried there, expecting sympathy, she found none to take her part, except Vidura.
Mbh.5.29.1279 Vidura alone spoke words of opposition, from a sense of duty, words conceived in righteousness addressed to that man Duryodhana of little sense.
Mbh.5.30.1327 Beside thee, there is another, who may come here, and that is Vidura.
Mbh.5.30.1356 Thou must also enquire about the welfare of Vidura, O sire, who alone is devoted to us, who is our instructor, who reared us, who is our father and mother and friend, whose understanding finds obstruction in nought, whose ken reaches far, and who is our counsellor.
Mbh.5.31.1397 Thou shouldst then address Vidura also, that adviser of the Kurus, saying,
Mbh.5.33.1481 SECTION XXXIII Vaisampayana said, King Dhritarashtra endued with great wisdom then said to the orderly-in-waiting, I desire to see Vidura.
Mbh.5.33.1484 Thus addressed, Vidura set out and coming to the palace, spoke unto the orderly, Apprise Dhritarashtra of my arrival'
Mbh.5.33.1485 Thereupon the orderly went to Dhritarashtra, and said, O, foremost of kings, Vidura is here at thy command.
Mbh.5.33.1488 Thereupon Dhritarashtra said, Let Vidura of great wisdom and foresight enter.
Mbh.5.33.1489 I am never unwilling or unprepared to see Vidura'
Mbh.5.33.1490 The orderly then went out and spoke unto Vidura, O Kshatri, enter the inner apartments of the wise king.
Mbh.5.33.1492 Vaisampayana continued, Having entered Dhritarashtra's chamber, Vidura said with joined hands unto that ruler of men who was then plunged in thought, O thou of great wisdom, I am Vidura, arrived here at thy command.
Mbh.5.33.1494 Dhritarashtra said, O Vidura, Sanjaya hath come back.
Mbh.5.33.1503 Vidura said, Sleeplessness overtaketh thief, a lustful person, him that hath lost all his wealth, him that hath failed to achieve success, and him also that is weak and hath been attacked by a strong person.
Mbh.5.33.1508 Vidura replied, King Yudhishthira, graced with every virtue, is worthy of being the sovereign of the three worlds; yet, O Dhritarashtra, however worthy of being kept by thy side, he was exiled by thee.
Mbh.5.34.1627 Advise me wisely, O Vidura.
Mbh.5.34.1630 I look back only on my previous guilt: I ask thee with anxious heart, O learned one, tell me what is exactly in Ajatasatru's mind' Vidura said, Even if unasked, one should speak truly, whether his words be good or bad, hateful or pleasing, unto him whose defeat one doth not wish.
Mbh.5.35.1682 Vidura said, Ablution in all the holy places and kindness to all creatures, these two are equal.
Mbh.5.35.1697 Vidura continued, When the night had passed away and the solar disc had risen, Sudhanwan, O best of kings, came to that place where, O master, Virochana was waiting with Kesini.
Mbh.5.35.1714 Vidura continued, Having thus laid a wager, Virochana and Sudhanwan, both moved by rage, proceeded to that place where Prahlada was.
Mbh.5.35.1749 Vidura continued, For these reasons, O king of kings, it behoveth thee not to say an untruth for the sake of land.
Mbh.5.36.1796 SECTION XXXVI Vidura said, In this connection is cited the old story of the discourse between the son of Atri and the deities called Sadhyas is as heard by us.
Mbh.5.36.1830 I ask thee, O Vidura, this question, what are those families that are called high'
Mbh.5.36.1831 Vidura said, Asceticism, self-restraint, knowledge of the Vedas, sacrifices, pure marriages, and gifts of food, those families in which these seven exist or are practised duly, are regarded as high.
Mbh.5.36.1864 Vidura said, O sinless one, in nothing else than knowledge and asceticism, in nothing else than restraining the senses, in nothing else than complete abandonment of avarice, do I see thy good.
Mbh.5.37.1907 SECTION XXXVII Vidura said, O son of Vichitravirya, Manu, the son of the Self-created, hath, O king, spoken of the following seven and ten kinds of men, as those that strike empty space with their fists, or seek to bend the vapoury bow of Indra in the sky, or desire to catch the intangible rays of the sun.
Mbh.5.37.1916 Vidura said, Excess of pride, excess in speech, excess in eating, anger, the desire of enjoyment, and intestine dissensions, these, O king, are six sharp swords that cut off the period of life allotted to creatures.
Mbh.5.38.1993 SECTION XXXVIII Vidura said, The heart of a young man, when an aged and venerable person cometh to his house as a guest, soareth aloft.
Mbh.5.39.2057 Vidura said, O Bharata, by speaking words out of season even Vrihaspati himself incurreth reproach and the charge of ignorance, one becometh agreeable by gift, another by sweet words, a third by the force of incantation and drugs.
Mbh.5.39.2070 Vidura said, He that is graced with every virtue and is endued with humility, is never indifferent to even the minutest sufferings of living creatures.
Mbh.5.40.2169 SECTION XL Vidura said, Worshipped by the good and abandoning pride, that good man who pursueth his objects without outstepping the limits of his power, soon succeedeth in winning fame, for they that are good, when gratified with a person, are certainly competent to bestow happiness on him.
Mbh.5.41.2220 SECTION XLI Sanat-sujata Parva Dhritarashtra said, If there is anything still left unsaid by thee, O Vidura, say it then, as I am ready to listen to thee.
Mbh.5.41.2222 Vidura.
Mbh.5.41.2225 O Vidura, do thou say it, if indeed, thou hast that degree of wisdom'
Mbh.5.41.2226 Vidura said, I am born in the Sudra order and, therefore, do not venture to say more than what I have already said.
Mbh.5.41.2230 Dhritarashtra said, Tell me, O Vidura, how with this body of mine I can meet with that ancient and immortal one'
Mbh.5.41.2231 Vaisampayana said, Then Vidura began to think of that Rishi of rigid vows.
Mbh.5.41.2233 Vidura then received him with the rites prescribed by ordinance.
Mbh.5.41.2234 And when, having rested a while, the Rishi was seated at his ease, Vidura addressed him, saying, O illustrious one, there is a doubt in Dhritarashtra's mind which is incapable of being explained away by me.
Mbh.5.42.2236 SECTION XLII Vaisampayana said, Then the illustrious and wise king Dhritarashtra, having applauded the words spoken by Vidura, questioned Sanat-sujata in secret, desirous of obtaining the highest of all knowledge.
Mbh.5.47.2650 SECTION XLVII Vaisampayana said, Thus conversing with Sanat-sujata and the learned Vidura, the king passed that night.
Mbh.5.47.2657 And Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and Salya, and Kritavarman and Jayadratha, and Aswatthaman and Vikarna, and Somadatta and Vahlika and Vidura of great wisdom and Yuyutsu, the great car-warrior, all these heroic kings in a body, O bull among the Bharatas, having Dhritarashtra at their head, entered that hall of great beauty.
Mbh.5.48.2787 But so let it be even as the aged Bhishma, the son of Santanu, and Kripa, and Drona with his son, and Vidura endued with great wisdom, are saying, May the Kauravas all live long
Mbh.5.50.2854 Then in that assembly of kings, Vidura said loudly, Sanjaya, O great king, hath fallen down on the ground senseless, and cannot utter a word, bereft of sense and his intellect clouded'
Mbh.5.51.2934 That very danger hath now come which was foreseen by Vidura at the outset.
Mbh.5.54.3019 Even this was said by myself as well as by the wise Vidura at the time of the gambling match at dice.
Mbh.5.55.3030 I think also that with the exception of Vidura all of you will be slain, although the chief of the Kurus, Dhritarashtra, conversant with morality, will not be included in the slaughter, O sire, effecting our complete destruction, Janardana wisheth to bestow upon Yudhishthira the entire kingdom of the Kurus.
Mbh.5.63.3356 Hearing this, Vidura said, Venerable persons of infallible knowledge say that in this world self-restraint is highly beneficial.
Mbh.5.64.3375 SECTION LXIV Vidura said, We have heard, O sire, from old men, that once on a time a fowler spread his net on the ground for catching feathery denizens of the air.
Mbh.5.64.3382 Vidura continued, The two birds, doomed to death, soon after quarrelled.
Mbh.5.67.3450 And introduced by Vidura they entered the court without delay.
Mbh.5.73.3682 In the very sight of the Grandsire Bhishma and Drona and the wise Vidura, of many holy Brahmanas, the king, the citizens, and all the chief Kauravas, the cruel Duryodhana, deceitfully defeating thee at dice, thee that are charitable, gentle, self-restrained, virtuous, and of rigid vows was not, O king, ashamed of his vile act.
Mbh.5.80.3884 Vidura, and Bhishma and Drona and Vahlika, these talents, O sinless one, will understand thee when thou wouldst utter words of wisdom.
Mbh.5.80.3886 When thou, O Janardana, art the speaker and Vidura the listener, what subject is there that cannot be rendered smooth and plain
Mbh.5.83.3994 O glorious Krishna, salute her for me, the Kuru king Dhritarashtra also, and all those monarchs who are senior to us in age, and Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, and king Vahlika, and Drona's son and Somadatta, and in fact, every one of the Bharata race, and also Vidura endued with great wisdom, that counsellor of the Kurus, of profound intellect and intimate acquaintance with morality, should all, O slayer of Madhu, be embraced by thee'
Mbh.5.83.4017 Indeed, Bhishma, and Drona, and others, as also the illustrious Vidura and thyself, O tiger among the Yadavas, Ye all will be assembled together in conclave!
Mbh.5.85.4056 SECTION LXXXV Vaisampayana said, Meanwhile, understanding from his spies that the slayer of Madhu had set out, Dhritarashtra, with his hair standing erect, respectfully addressing the mighty-armed Bhishma and Dorna and Sanjaya and the illustrious Vidura, said these words unto Duryodhana and his counsellors, O scion of Kuru's race, strange and wonderful is the news that we hear.
Mbh.5.86.4078 SECTION LXXXVI Dhritarashtra said, O Vidura, Janardana hath set out from Upaplavya.
Mbh.5.87.4102 SECTION LXXXVII Vidura said, O monarch, O best of men, thou art respected by three worlds.
Mbh.5.88.4128 SECTION LXXXVIII Duryodhana said, All that Vidura hath said about Krishna, hath indeed, been truly said; for Janardana is greatly devoted to the Pandavas and can never be separated from them.
Mbh.5.89.4177 And Madhava having duly greeted all the Kurus in their assembly, then went to the delightful abode of Vidura; and Vidura, having approached Janardana of Dasarha's race thus arrived at his abode, worshipped him with every auspicious and desirable offering.
Mbh.5.89.4179 And after the hospitable reception was over, Vidura, conversant with all the principles of morality, enquired of Govinda, the slayer of Madhu, about the welfare of Pandavas.
Mbh.5.89.4180 And that scion of Dasarha's race, that chief of the Vrishnis, unto whom the past and the future were as the present, knowing that Vidura was loved by the Pandavas and friendly towards them, and learned, and firm in morality, and honest, and harbouring no wrath against the Pandavas, and wise, began to tell him everything in detail about the doings of the sons of Pandu
Mbh.5.90.4181 SECTION XC Vaisampayana said, Janardana, the chastiser of foes, after his meeting with Vidura, went then in the afternoon to his paternal aunt, Pritha.
Mbh.5.90.4207 It is known that amongst those that were present, king Vahlika, Kripa, Somadatta, were pierced with grief at this sight, but of all present in that assembly, it was Vidura whom I worship.
Mbh.5.90.4209 It is by disposition alone that one becomes respectable, O Krishna, endued with great intelligence and profound wisdom, the character of the illustrious Vidura, like unto an ornament that he wears adorns the whole world'
Mbh.5.91.4314 The food supplied by Vidura alone, should, I think, be eaten by me'
Mbh.5.91.4316 And the high-souled Vasudeva of mighty arms, coming out of that mansion, directed his steps towards the abode of the illustrious Vidura.
Mbh.5.91.4321 And after all the Kurus had gone away, Vidura, with great care entertained that unvanquished hero of Dasarha's race with every object of desire.
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.5.92.4325 SECTION XCII Vaisampayana said, After Kesava had dined and been refreshed, Vidura said unto him during the night, O Kesava, this advent of thine hath not been a well judged one, for, O Janardana, Dhritarashtra's son transgresseth the rules of both profit and religion, is wicked and wrathful, insulteth others, though himself desirous of honours, and disobeyeth the commands of the aged.
Mbh.5.93.4367 SECTION XCIII The holy one said, That, indeed, which should be said by a person of great wisdom: that, indeed, which should be said by one possessed of great foresight; that indeed, which should be said by one like thee to a friend like me; that indeed, which is deserving of thee, being consistent with virtue and profit, and truth; that, O Vidura, hath been said by thee, father and mother-like, unto me.
Mbh.5.93.4369 Listen, however, with attention, O Vidura, to the reason of my coming.
Mbh.5.93.4371 I have still, O Vidura, come to the Kurus.
Mbh.5.93.4375 I will sincerely endeavour, O Vidura, to bring about peace between the Kurus and the Srinjayas who are about to be slaughtered in battle.
Mbh.5.93.4380 It behoveth Dhritarashtra's son, therefore, O Vidura, with his counsellors, to accept my good and beneficial counsels that are consistent with virtue and profit and competent to dispel the present calamity.
Mbh.5.94.4392 Indeed, the night passed away against the wishes of the illustrious Vidura, who had been listening to the varied conversation of Krishna fraught with virtue, profit, and desire, and made up of delightful words and syllables of agreeable import; and also those of Krishna himself, of immeasurable prowess, listening to discourses equal in style and character.
Mbh.5.94.4403 And Vidura, conversant with all the precepts of religion, followed on his own car that scion of Dasarha's race, that foremost of all living creatures, that first of all persons gifted with intelligence.
Mbh.5.94.4419 And that illustrious hero entered the court, arm-in-arm with Vidura and Satyaki on either side, and overshadowing with his own the splendour of all the Kurus, like the sun overshadowing the radiance of lesser lights in the firmament.
Mbh.5.94.4437 And the high-souled Vidura sat on a begemmed seat covered with a white deer-skin that almost touched Krishna's seat.
Mbh.5.124.5474 O mighty-armed one, he never listeneth to the beneficial words, O Hrishikesa, of Gandhari, or of wise Vidura, or of other friends headed by Bhishma, all of whom seek his good.
Mbh.5.125.5554 This resplendent prosperity of the Bharatas amongst all the kings of the earth, thou wilt, during the very life of Dhritarashtra, destroy through thy wickedness, and thou wilt also, through this arrogant disposition of thine, deprive thyself with all thy counsellors, sons, brothers, and kinsmen, of life, if, O thou foremost of Bharata's race, thou transgressest the words of Kesava, thy father, and of wise Vidura, words that are consistent with truth and fraught with benefit to thyself.
Mbh.5.125.5575 Vaisampayana continued, After Drona had ceased, Vidura also, otherwise called Kshattri, casting his eyes on Duryodhana, said unto that vindictive son of Dhritarashtra, O Duryodhana, O bull of Bharata's race, I do not grieve for thee.
Mbh.5.128.5656 Though repeatedly solicited by thy parents, by Bhishma, Drona, and Vidura, to make peace, thou dost not yet, O king, make peace.
Mbh.5.128.5664 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words of his brother, Dhritarashtra's son, wicked, shameless, disobedient, disrespectful, and vain Suyodhana, breathing heavily like a great snake rose up from his seat in anger, and disregarding Vidura, and Dhritarashtra and the great king Vahlika, and Kripa, and Somadatta, and Bhishma, and Drona, and Janardana, in fact, all of them, went out of the court, And beholding that bull among men leave the court, his brother and all his counsellors, and all the kings, followed him.
Mbh.5.129.5690 SECTION CXXIX Vaisampayana said, Hearing these words of Krishna, king Dhritarashtra lost no time in addressing Vidura, who was conversant with all dictates of virtue.
Mbh.5.129.5695 Hearing these words of the king, Vidura, at Dhritarashtra's command, brought thither Gandhari, possessed of great foresight.
Mbh.5.130.5771 And he first informed the high-souled Kesava and then Dhritarashtra, and then Vidura of that conspiracy.
Mbh.5.130.5776 Hearing these words of Satyaki, Vidura, endued with great foresight, said these words unto the mighty-armed Dhritarashtra in the midst of the Kurus, O king, O chastiser of foes, the hour of all thy sons is come, for they are endeavouring to perpetrate a highly infamous act, however incapable they may be of actually accomplishing it.
Mbh.5.130.5782 After Vidura had said these words, Kesava, casting his eyes on Dhritarashtra, said in the midst of those well-meaning persons, who listen to others' words, O king, if these men desire to chastise me by using violence, permit them to chastise me.
Mbh.5.130.5790 Hearing these words of Kesava, Dhritarashtra addressed Vidura saying, Quickly bring hither sinful Duryodhana, who is so covetous of sovereignty, with his friends, counsellors, brothers, and followers.
Mbh.5.130.5799 After Dhritarashtra had said these words, Vidura casting his eyes on Duryodhana, addressed that vindictive son of Dhritarashtra, saying, O Duryodhana, listen now to these words of mine.
Mbh.5.131.5819 SECTION CXXXI Vaisampayana said, After Vidura had said this, Kesava, that slayer of hostile divisions, endued with great energy, addressed Dhritarashtra's son, Duryodhana, and said, From delusion, O Suyodhana, thou regardest me to be alone, and it is for this, O thou of little understanding, that thou seekest to make me a captive after vanquishing me by violence.
Mbh.5.131.5833 And beholding that awful form of the high-souled Kesava, all the kings closed their eyes with affrighted hearts, except Drona, and Bhishma, and Vidura, endued with great intelligence, greatly blessed Sanjaya, and the Rishis, possessed of wealth of asceticism, for the divine Janardana gave unto them this divine sight on the occasion.
Mbh.5.139.6235 Thou hast been addressed by the eldest of the Kurus, by me, by Vidura, and by Vasudeva.
Mbh.5.144.6455 Hearing these words uttered by Vidura, who always wished her sons the accomplishment of their objects, Kunti began to sigh heavily, afflicted with grief, and began to think within herself, Fie to wealth, for the sake of which this great slaughter of kinsmen is about to take place.
Mbh.5.147.6623 What I have said unto thee represents also the opinion of thy father, of Gandhari, and also of Vidura.
Mbh.5.148.6629 Though king by right that perpetuator of Kuru's race yet made over the sovereignty to his elder brother, Dhritarashtra, endued with great wisdom, and to his younger brother Kshattri Vidura.
Mbh.5.148.6631 And that tiger among men, Vidura, with great humility, placing himself in subjection to Dhritarashtra, began to wait on him like a slave, fanning him with the branch of a tender palm.
Mbh.5.148.6633 And having made over the kingdom to Dhritarashtra and Vidura, that conqueror of hostile cities, Pandu, wandered over the whole earth.
Mbh.5.148.6634 Always devoted to truth, Vidura then took charge of the finances, gifts, superintendence of the servants of the state, and the feeding of all, while that conqueror of hostile cities, Bhishma, of mighty energy, supervised the making of war and peace and the necessity of making or withholding gifts to kings.
Mbh.5.148.6635 When king Dhritarashtra of great strength was on the throne, the high-souled Vidura was near him.
Mbh.5.148.6648 Vasudeva continued, After Drona, of immeasurable energy, had said this, the virtuous Vidura then, O king, who is devoted to truth, said these words, turning towards his uncle Bhishma and looking at his face.
Mbh.5.148.6649 And Vidura said, O Devavrata, attend to the words I speak.
Mbh.5.148.6663 Having said this, Vidura ceased, his heart overflowing with sorrow.
Mbh.5.148.6669 Wise Dhritarashtra is in possession of the kingdom, having Vidura of great foresight under him as his adviser.
Mbh.5.148.6676 Observing the customs of our race and the rule with respect to our kingdom, we all fully accomplish that which this high-souled and wise chief of the Kurus, Devavrata, firmly adhering to truth, sayeth, Let this king Dhritarashtra and Vidura also, at the command of Bhishma of great vows, proclaim the same thing.
Mbh.5.150.6728 SECTION CXLX Vasudeva said, Though thus addressed by Bhishma, and Drona, and Vidura, and Gandhari, and Dhritarashtra, that wicked wight could not yet be brought to his senses.
Mbh.5.150.6736 I have told thee, O king, everything that, O Bharata, that was said by Bhishma, Drona, Vidura, Gandhari and Dhritarashtra, in my presence.
Mbh.5.150.6743 Indeed, I said, Those heroes, the sons of Pandu, sacrificing their pride, will live in dependence on Dhritarashtra, Bhishma and Vidura.
Mbh.5.150.6746 Let: it all be as the king Dhritarashtra, as Ganga's son Bhishma and as Vidura say for thy good.
Mbh.5.155.6868 Thou hast heard the words uttered by both Vidura and Bhishma.
Mbh.5.155.6873 That wretch of wicked understanding listeneth not in the least to the counsels of Bhishma or Vidura or mine.
Mbh.5.155.6879 Indeed, all of them follow Duryodhana, except Vidura, O thou of unfading glory, Sakuni, the son of Suvala, and Karna, and Dussasana, all equally foolish, gave foolish and vindictive Duryodhana much improper advice regarding thee.
Mbh.5.155.6894 And addressing Yudhishthira, Arjuna continued, Thou hast, O king, certainly understood all the words spoken by Kunti and Vidura, that were repeated to thee by Devaki's son.
Mbh.5.155.6895 I know it for certain that neither Vidura nor Kunti would say anything that is sinful.
Mbh.5.161.7142 Remembering that it was for thee that the wicked Vidura was driven by us and that we had tried to burn you all in the house of lac, be a man now; at the time of Krishna's setting out from Upaplavya for the Kuru court, thou hadst through him communicated this message to us, viz, Hear, O king, I am prepared for either war or peace!
Mbh.6.49.2552 Always forbidden by me, by Gandhari, by Vidura, by Rama the son of Jamadagni, and by the high-souled Vyasa also, the wicked-minded and sinful Duryodhana, with Dussasana, O Sanjaya, always following the counsels of Karna and Suvala's son, behaved maliciously towards the Pandavas.
Mbh.6.65.3516 The words uttered by Vidura will, no doubt, consume my heart.
Mbh.6.65.3549 Repeatedly forbidden by Vidura, by Bhishma, by the high-souled Drona, and by myself also thou didst not understand, rejecting our words intended for thy good and worthy of thy acceptance, like a sick man rejecting the medicine prescribed.
Mbh.6.76.4032 Indeed Vidura had often said what was both beneficial and desirable.
Mbh.6.89.4692 Thus, O king, thy sons, those mighty bowmen, beholding their brothers slain, recollected those words beneficial and peaceful, that Vidura of great wisdom had spoken.
Mbh.6.89.4693 Indeed, those words of the truthful Vidura are now being realised, those beneficial words, O king, which, influenced by covetousness and folly as also by affection for thy sons, thou couldst not then understand.
Mbh.6.89.4701 Even this was said by me before, as also by Drona, and Vidura, and the renowned Gandhari.
Mbh.6.90.4712 The wicked Duryodhana did not comprehend our words before, though admonished by me, O son, and by Bhishma and Vidura.
Mbh.6.90.4715 Sanjaya said, Those excellent words of Vidura, uttered for thy good, but which thou didst not then understand, have now come to be realised.
Mbh.6.90.4716 Vidura had said, Restrain thy sons from the dice'
Mbh.6.90.4719 Indeed, the Kauravas are now being destroyed for having rejected those words, deserving of acceptance, of Vidura and Drona and Bhishma and thy other well-wishers.
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.6.123.6826 Dhritarashtra's son Duryodhana listened not to the words repeatedly spoken by me and Vidura and Drona and Rama and Janardana and also by Sanjaya.
Mbh.7.83.3676 Vidura did not approve of it.
Mbh.7.83.3699 I think, beholding the fruits of the words uttered by the far-seeing Vidura, my sons are now indulging in lamentations!
Mbh.7.111.5403 Formerly, many of thy wise well-wishers, numbering Vidura amongst them, had told thee, Do not, O king, abandon the sons of Pandu'
Mbh.7.133.6634 Beholding those sons of thine, all mighty car-warriors, O king, thus slain, Karna, with tearful face, recollected the word of Vidura.
Mbh.7.134.6694 beneficial words spoken by Vidura are now realised!
Mbh.7.144.7453 With a tearful face and in great dejection of heart, he uttered these words: Beholding all this in his mental vision, Vidura of great wisdom had, on the birth of the wretched Suyodhana, that exterminator of his race, said unto Dhritarashtra, Let this wretch of his race be soon killed.
Mbh.7.144.7455 Alas, these words of the truth-telling Vidura have come to be true.
Mbh.7.148.7753 Though Vidura characterised them to be such, thou didst not yet understand them to be so.
Mbh.7.148.7754 Those words, again, that the wise and high-souled Vidura, with tears in his eyes had then said unto thee, those auspicious words recommending peace, thou didst not then hear.
Mbh.7.148.7763 Disregarding the words of Vidura, thou hast repeatedly fanned it thyself.
Mbh.8.2.33 Counsels for thy good had been uttered by Vidura and Ganga's son and Keshava.
Mbh.8.4.91 Vidura also, sprinkling that descendant of Kuru with water, began to comfort the puissant monarch who had knowledge only for his eye.
Mbh.8.69.4008 I will now tell thee, O son of Pandu, this mystery connected with morality, this mystery that was declared by Bhishma, by the righteous Yudhishthira, by Vidura otherwise called Kshatri, and by Kunti, of great celebrity.
Mbh.8.96.6153 Then Vidura and Sanjaya both raised the fallen monarch and began to console him.
Mbh.9.1.29 Beholding the sinless monarch, that chief of Bharata's race, seated, surrounded by his daughters-in-law and Gandhari and Vidura and by other friends and kinsmen that were always his well-wishers, and engaged in thinking on that very subject, the death of Karna, the Suta Sanjaya, with heart filled with grief, O Janamejaya, weepingly and in a voice choked with tears, said unto him, I am Sanjaya, O tiger among men.
Mbh.9.1.53 As soon as the king fell down, Vidura also, of great fame, O monarch, afflicted with sorrow on account of the king's distress, fell down on the earth.
Mbh.9.1.57 Having recovered his senses, the king, with trembling limbs and sorrowful heart, turned his face on every side, and said these words unto Kshattri Vidura.
Mbh.9.1.65 After a long while, O best of men, Dhritarashtra, having repeatedly swooned, addressed Vidura, saying, Let all the ladies retire, as also Gandhari of great fame, and all these friends.
Mbh.9.1.67 Thus addressed, Vidura, repeatedly trembling, slowly dismissed the ladies, O bull of Bharata's race.
Mbh.9.1.70 With joined hands, Vidura then, in sweet words, comforted that ruler of men who was sighing incessantly
Mbh.9.2.127 Long before, the high-souled Vidura had told me that through the fault of Duryodhana the population of the Earth would be exterminated.
Mbh.9.2.129 Those words of Vidura have been even so unto my foolish self.
Mbh.9.2.130 What Vidura of righteous soul, conversant with attributes of everything, then said, hath turned out exactly, for the words he uttered were nothing but the truth.
Mbh.9.19.1179 Let him recollect today the time and beneficial words of Vidura.
Mbh.9.22.1518 What medicine can be acceptable to that person today who disregarded Bhishma the son of Santanu, and Drona, and Vidura, while they urged him to make peace?
Mbh.9.22.1524 The high-souled Vidura, O sire, told me many a time that as long as life remained in Dhritarashtra's son, he would never give us our share of the kingdom!
Mbh.9.22.1525 Vidura further told me, As long also as Dhritarashtra will live, O giver of honours, even that sinful wight will act sinfully towards you!
Mbh.9.22.1527 Even thus, O Madhava, did Vidura of true foresight often speak to me!
Mbh.9.22.1528 All the acts of that wicked-souled wight, I now find to be exactly as the high-souled Vidura had said!
Mbh.9.26.1779 Beholding his son slain, Shakuni, O Bharata, with voice choked with tears and drawing deep breaths, recollected the words of Vidura.
Mbh.9.27.1845 Before he had proceeded far on foot, the king recalled the words of the intelligent and virtuous Vidura.
Mbh.9.27.1846 Without doubt, this had been foreseen by Vidura of great wisdom, this great carnage of Kshatriyas and of ourselves in battle.
Mbh.9.27.1924 He then saw Vidura of great wisdom, sitting with tearful eyes.
Mbh.9.27.1926 Bowing down unto Vidura, he stood before him.
Mbh.9.27.1927 Devoted to truth, Vidura addressed him, saying, By good luck, O son, thou livest amid this general destruction of the Kurus!
Mbh.9.27.1934 Hearing these words spoken by the son of Dhritarashtra's Vaisya wife, Vidura of immeasurable soul, conversant with every usage and feeling that was proper at that hour, applauded the eloquent Yuyutsu.
Mbh.9.27.1941 Having said these words, Vidura, with tearful eyes, took leave of Yuyutsu and entered the abode of the king, which resounded with cries of Oh
Mbh.9.27.1947 Conversant with every duty, Vidura, with a sorrowful heart, entered the palace, drawing deep breaths.
Mbh.9.59.4250 This sinful, shameless, and covetous wretch, surrounded by sinful counsellors and ever regardless of the advice of wise friends, met with his death even when he refused, though repeatedly urged to contrary by Vidura and Drona and Kripa and Sanjaya, to give unto the sons of Pandu their paternal share in the kingdom which they had solicited at his hands!
Mbh.9.61.4435 Bhishma, and Somadatta, and Valhika, and Kripa, and Drona and his son, and the wise Vidura, always solicited thee for peace.
Mbh.10.1.23 The words of the high-souled Vidura have come to be realised!
Mbh.10.2.150 Let us, therefore, repair to Dhritarashtra and Gandhari and the high-souled Vidura and ask them as what we should do.
Mbh.11.1.42 Thy son, O Bharata, did not obey the words of Bhishma, the reverend chief of the Kurus, of Gandhari and Vidura, of Drona, O king, of Kripa the son of Sharadvata, of the mighty-armed Krishna, of the intelligent Narada, of many other rishis, and of Vyasa himself of immeasurable energy.
Mbh.11.1.69 Vidura then, O scorcher of foes, once again addressed the king, displaying great intelligence
Mbh.11.2.70 SECTION Vaishampayana said, Listen, O Janamejaya, to the nectar-like words that Vidura said unto the son of Vicitravirya and by which he gladdened that bull among men!
Mbh.11.2.71 Vidura said, Rise, O king!
Mbh.11.3.156 Vidura said, He that is wise obtains tranquillity by subduing both grief and joy through means by which one may escape from grief and joy.
Mbh.11.4.178 Vidura said, I will describe to thee all the acts of creatures from their first conception.
Mbh.11.5.207 Vidura said, Having bowed down to the Self-create, I will obey thy behest by telling thee how the great sages speak of the wilderness of life.
Mbh.11.6.245 Vidura said, They that are conversant, O monarch, with the religion of moksha cite this as a simile.
Mbh.11.7.265 Vidura said, Listen to me, O king, I shall once more discourse in detail on those means an acquaintance with which enable the wise to free themselves from the ties of the world.
Mbh.11.8.308 SECTION Vaishampayana said, Even after hearing the words of Vidura, the chief of the Kurus, afflicted with grief on account of the death of his sons, fell down senseless on the Earth.
Mbh.11.8.309 Beholding him fall down in that state, his friends, as also the island-born Vyasa, and Vidura, and Sanjaya, and other well-wishers, and the attendants who used to wait at the gates and who enjoyed his confidence, sprinkled cool water over his body, and fanned him with palm leaves, and gently rubbed him with their hands.
Mbh.11.8.332 O thou of mighty arms, the high-souled Vidura knew everything.
Mbh.11.9.401 Approaching the monarch who was lying prostrate on the Earth, Vidura, conversant with every duty, said these words: Rise, O king, why dost thou lie down thus?
Mbh.11.10.432 SECTION Vaishampayana said, Hearing these words of Vidura, that bull of Bharatas race Dhritarashtra ordered his car to be yoked.
Mbh.11.10.435 Having said these words unto Vidura, conversant with every duty, Dhritarashtra of righteous soul, deprived of his senses by sorrow, ascended on his car.
Mbh.11.10.439 Then Vidura, who had become more afflicted than those ladies, began to comfort them.
Mbh.11.13.529 Both Bhishma and Drona, O Bharata, did the same, as also Vidura and Sanjaya.
Mbh.11.15.654 Even that has come to pass which Vidura of great wisdom foretold after Krishnas supplication for peace had failed.
Mbh.11.17.757 Having disregarded Vidura, as also his own sire, this reckless, foolish, and wicked prince hath succumbed to death, in consequence of his disregard of the old.
Mbh.11.25.1035 Shantanus son and the wise Vidura told me then, Cease to bear affection for thy children
Mbh.11.26.1088 Vaishampayana continued, Thus addressed, Kuntis son Yudhishthira of great wisdom commanded Sudharma the priest of the Kauravas and Dhaumya, and Sanjaya of the suta order, and Vidura of great wisdom, and Yuyutsu of Kurus race, and all his servants headed by Indrasena, and all the other sutas that were with him, saying, Cause the funeral rites of the slain, numbering by thousands, to be duly performed, so that nobody may perish for want of persons to take care of them!
Mbh.11.26.1089 At this command of king Yudhishthira the just, Vidura and Sanjaya and Sudharma and Dhaumya and Indrasena and others, procuring sandal, aloe and other kinds of wood used on such occasions, as also clarified butter and oil and perfumes and costly silken robes and other kinds of cloth, and large heaps of dry wood, and broken cars and diverse kinds of weapons, caused funeral pyres to be duly made and lighted and then without haste burnt, with due rites the slain kings in proper order.
Mbh.11.26.1094 Those among the dead that had come from diverse realms and were utterly friendless were piled together in thousands of heaps and, at the command of Yudhishthira, were caused to be burnt by Vidura through a large number of persons acting coolly and influenced by good-will and affection, on pyres made of dry wood.
Mbh.12.1.4 Vaisampayana said, Having offered oblations, of water unto all their friends and kinsmen, the sons of Pandu, and Vidura, and Dhritarashtra, and all the Bharata ladies, continued to dwell there on the banks of the sacred stream.
Mbh.12.7.247 Without doubt, by disregarding Vidura and the high-souled son of Ganga, and in consequence of his neglect in restraining his wicked and covetous son, entirely governed by his passions, the king has met with destruction like my poor self.
Mbh.12.37.2015 The other ladies of the Kuru household, as also Kunti and Krishna, all proceeded on excellent vehicles, headed by Vidura.
Mbh.12.40.2102 Sudharman and Vidura, and Dhaumya, and the Kuru king Dhritarashtra, each sat separately on separate seats that blazed with the effulgence of fire.
Mbh.12.41.2135 And he cheerfully appointed Vidura of great intelligence for assisting him with his deliberations and for overlooking the sixfold requirements of the state
Mbh.12.41.2142 That slayer of hostile heroes, viz, the righteous-souled king Yudhishthira, ever devoted to virtue, commanded Vidura and the high-souled Yuyutsu, saying, You should always with alacrity and attention do everything that my royal father Dhritarashthra wishes.
Mbh.12.42.2151 He showed due honour, as before, unto Dhritarashtra, and Gandhari, and Vidura, and unto all the superior Kauravas and unto all the officers.
Mbh.12.44.2212 Yuyutsu and Vidura and Sanjaya, O monarch, and Sudharman and Dhaumya, proceeded to the abodes they had owned before
Mbh.12.45.2224 Observant of vows, the king continued to honour Vidura greatly.
Mbh.12.45.2227 Placing his kingdom, at the disposal of Dhritarashtra, of Gandhari, and of Vidura, king Yudhishthira continued to pass his days happily.
Mbh.12.114.6493 Kshatri Vidura also, possessed of great wisdom, always gives us valuable instruction.
Mbh.12.166.9933 The king addressing his brothers with Vidura forming the fifth, said, The course of the world rests upon Virtue, Wealth, and Desire.
Mbh.12.166.9937 Thus addressed by the Kuru chief, Vidura, who was conversant with the science of Profit, with the course of the world, and with truth that concerns the real nature of things, and possessed of great brilliancy of intellect, spoke first these words, recollecting the contents of the scriptures'
Mbh.12.166.9938 Vidura said, Study of the various scriptures, asceticism, gift, faith, performance of sacrifices, forgiveness, sincerity of disposition, compassion, truth, self-restraint, these constitute possessions of Virtue.
Mbh.12.166.9952 Vaisampayana continued, After Vidura had finished what he had to say, Pritha's son Arjuna, well skilled in the science of Profit, and conversant also with the truths of both Virtue and Profit, urged on by the drift of Yudhishthira's question, said these words'
Mbh.13.167.13748 Placing Dhritarashtra ahead and queen Gandhari celebrated for her virtues, and his own mother Kunti and all his brothers also, Yudhishthira of great intelligence, accompanied by Krishna and Vidura of great wisdom, as also by Yuyutsu and Yuyudhana, and by his other relatives and followers forming a large train, proceeded, his praises hymned the while by eulogists and bards.
Mbh.13.168.13838 Then the high-souled Pandavas and Vidura, taking a large quantity of wood and diverse kinds of fragrant scents, made a funeral pyre.
Mbh.13.168.13840 Then Yudhishthira and the high-souled Vidura wrapped Bhishma's body with silken cloth and floral garlands.
Mbh.14.1.15 Not having listened to the pregnant words of the high-souled Vidura, who sought our welfare, I, of perverse senses, now repent.
Mbh.14.1.16 The virtuous Vidura, endowed with divine insight, had told me, Thy race will meet with annihilation owing to the transgressions of Duryodhana.
Mbh.14.1.23 When, O Kunti's son, the far-sighted Vidura said this, fool that I was I followed the wicked Duryodhana.
Mbh.14.2.33 And thou hast heard the duties of the Kshatriyas, recited by Bhishma, the son of Bhagirathi, by Krishna Dwaipayana, Narada and Vidura.
Mbh.14.52.2304 They then saw, O monarch, king Dhritarashtra, and Vidura of great intelligence, and king Yudhishthira and the irresistible Bhimasena, and the two sons of Madri by Pandu; and the unvanquished Yuyatsu, seated before Dhritarashtra and Gandhari of great wisdom, and Pritha, and the beautiful Krishna, and the other ladies of Bharata's race with Subhadra counting first.
Mbh.14.52.2308 Embracing Vidura also, they enquired after his welfare.
Mbh.14.52.2345 He was properly accosted by her in return, and then by all the others having Vidura for their first.
Mbh.14.52.2348 The hero who had the foremost of apes on his banner, as also Satyaki, and the two sons of Madravati, and Vidura of immeasurable intelligence, and Bhima himself whose tread resembled that of a prince of elephants, all followed Madhava.
Mbh.14.52.2349 Janarddana of mighty energy causing all those extenders of the Kuru kingdom and Vidura also to return, addressed Daraka, and Satyaki, saying, Urge the steeds to speed'
Mbh.14.53.2375 They the Kauravas transgressed the counsels which Bhishma and Vidura gave them referring to me
Mbh.14.60.2785 Upon the slaughter of the Kaurava king Suyodhana with all his followers and allies, Vidura and Sanjaya have come to the presence of king Yudhishthira the just.
Mbh.14.66.2968 Beholding those heroes come, king Dhritarashtra, as also the high-souled Vidura, received them with due honours.
Mbh.14.66.2969 That foremost of men, viz, Krishna of great energy, well adored by Vidura and Yuyutsu, continued to reside in the Kuru capital.
Mbh.14.70.3114 Desirous of doing what was beneficial to the sons of Pandu, Vidura ordered diverse kinds of worship to be offered to the deities established in their respective temples.
Mbh.14.71.3126 Those foremost ones of Bharata's race, O chief of kings, then paid their respectful salutations to Gandhari, the daughter of Suvala and to Kunti, They next worshipped their uncle Vidura and met Yuyutsu, the son of Dhritarashtra by his Vaisya wife.
Mbh.15.1.10 Vidura, and Sanjaya and Yuyutsu of great intelligence, who was Dhritarashtra's son by his Vaisya wife, used to wait upon Dhritarashtra.
Mbh.15.1.19 Vidura, and Sanjaya, and Yuyutsu, O thou of Karu's race, used to always wait upon the old king whose sons had all been slain.
Mbh.15.1.22 Vidura, under the orders of Dhritarashtra, superintended the discharge of all acts of religious merit and all that related to the administration of the law.
Mbh.15.1.23 Through the excellent policy of Vidura, by the expenditure of even a small wealth, the Pandavas obtained numerous agreeable services from their feudatories and followers.
Mbh.15.2.68 Both Gandhari and Vidura also wore well pleased with the capacity the king Ajatasatru showed for bearing wrongs.
Mbh.15.3.97 Vidura, and Bhishma, and Drona, and Kripa, said the same thing.
Mbh.15.3.198 Vidura and others wept aloud in great grief.
Mbh.15.4.252 After the holy Vyasa had gone away, the royal son of Pandu softly said these words unto his old father, bending himself in humility, What the holy Vyasa has said, what is thy own purpose, what the great bowman Kripa has said, what Vidura has expressed, and what has been asked for by Yuyutsu and Sanjaya, I shall accomplish with speed.
Mbh.15.5.258 He was followed by Vidura of great learning, and his charioteer Sanjaya, as also that mighty bowman Kripa, the son of Saradwata.
Mbh.15.5.261 After Dhritarashtra had eaten, and Vidura also and others had done the same, the Pandavas, having finished their meals, approached and sat around the old king.
Mbh.15.7.387 Thou hast been instructed in all duties by Bhishma, by Krishna, and by Vidura, I should also, O best of kings, from the affection I bear thee, give thee these instructions.
Mbh.15.8.395 Vidura and Sanjaya also will accompany thee to the forest.
Mbh.15.11.531 SECTION XI Vaisampayana said, After that night had passed away, Dhritarashtra, the son of Amvika, despatched Vidura to Yudhishthira's mansion.
Mbh.15.11.532 Endued with great energy and the foremost of all persons possessed of intelligence, Vidura, having arrived at Yudhishthira's mansion, addressed that foremost of men, that king of unfading glory, in these words, King Dhritarashtra has undergone the preliminary rites for accomplishing his purpose of retiring into the woods.
Mbh.15.11.536 Hearing these words of Vidura, both Yudhishthira, and Pandit's son Arjuna of curly hair, became very glad and applauded them highly.
Mbh.15.11.537 Bhima, however, of great energy and unappeasable wrath, did not accept those words of Vidura in good spirits, recollecting the acts of Duryodhana.
Mbh.15.11.564 Hast thou forgotten, O Partha, that it was this wretch of our race, of wicked understanding, that enquired of Vidura, when the match at dice was going on, What has been won'
Mbh.15.12.570 Hearing these words of the high-souled Phalguna, the righteous-souled Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, addressed Vidura and said these words, Instructed by me, O Kshattri, do thou say unto the Kuru king that I shall give him as much wealth from my treasury as he wishes to give away for the obsequies of his song, and of Bhishma and others among his well-wishers and benefactors.
Mbh.15.12.574 Then Yudhishthira, endued with great intelligence, once more addressed Vidura and said, It behoves not king Dhritarashtra to be angry with Bhimasena.
Mbh.15.13.586 SECTION XIII Vaisampayana said, Thus addressed by king Yudhishthira, Vidura, that foremost of all intelligent persons, returned to Dhritarashtra and said unto him these words of grave import.
Mbh.15.13.604 Let, O Vidura, large pavilions be constructed, rich with food and drink of diverse tastes collected in profusion.
Mbh.15.13.608 After Vidura had said these words, O Janamejaya, Dhritarashtra his satisfaction at them and set his heart upon making large presents on the day of full moon in the month of Kartika'
Mbh.15.14.609 SECTION XIV Vaisampayana said, Thus addressed by Vidura, king Dhritarashtra became highly pleased, O monarch, with the act of Yudhishthira and Jishnu.
Mbh.15.15.638 Vrikodara, the heroic Phalguna, the two sons of Madri, Vidura, Sanjaya, Dhritarashtra's son by his Vaisya wife, and Kripa, and Dhaumya, and other Brahmanas, all followed the old monarch, with voices choked in grief.
Mbh.15.16.649 Vidura had set his heart on going to the forest along with the king.
Mbh.15.18.735 Then Amvika's son of great energy, viz, Dhritarashtra, addressing Gandhari and Vidura and supporting himself on them, said, Let the royal mother of Yudhishthira cease to go with us.
Mbh.15.18.757 Then Vidura and Sanjaya made a bed for the king by spreading some blades of Kusa grass.
Mbh.15.18.760 Within hearing distance of those three, slept Vidura and others.
Mbh.15.19.769 Following the advice of Vidura, the king took up his abode on the banks of the Bhagirathi which were sacred and deserved to be peopled with the righteous.
Mbh.15.19.774 The king and the queen, and Vidura and others, O Bharata, having bathed in the sacred stream, performed the usual rites of religion.
Mbh.15.19.791 Vidura, conversant with the true interpretations of righteousness, and endued with great intelligence, as also Sanjaya, waited upon the old king with his wife.
Mbh.15.19.792 Both of them with souls under subjection, Vidura and Sanjaya also reduced themselves, and wore barks and rags'
Mbh.15.20.820 Vidura will enter into the high-souled Yudhishthira.
Mbh.15.21.861 What, again, is the condition of Vidura who is always devoted to the service of his elder brother?
Mbh.15.21.864 The Pandavas also, exceedingly afflicted with grief, sorrowed for their old mother, and could not live in their city long, Thinking also of their old sire, the king, who had lost all his children, and the highly blessed Gandhari, and Vidura of great intelligence, they failed to enjoy peace of mind.
Mbh.15.26.1005 Where is Vidura, O king?
Mbh.15.26.1009 Vidura is well.
Mbh.15.26.1013 While Dhritarashtra was saying this Vidura was seen at a distance.
Mbh.15.26.1018 Vidura suddenly stopped, O king, casting his eyes towards the retreat and seeing it peopled by so many individuals.
Mbh.15.26.1020 He said aloud, O Vidura, O Vidura, I am king Yudhishthira, thy favourite,
Mbh.15.26.1021 Exclaiming thus, Yudhishthira, with great exertion, followed Vidura.
Mbh.15.26.1022 That foremost of intelligent men, viz, Vidura, having reached a solitary spot in the forest, stood still, leaning against a tree.
Mbh.15.26.1027 Indeed, worshipping Vidura properly, Yudhishthira said these words in the hearing of Vidura.
Mbh.15.26.1028 Meanwhile Vidura eyed the king with a steadfast gaze.
Mbh.15.26.1032 Verify, with the aid of Yoga-power, Vidura, blazing with energy, thus entered the body of king Yudhishthira the just.
Mbh.15.26.1033 Meanwhile, the body of Vidura continued to lean against the tree, with eyes fixed in a steadfast gaze.
Mbh.15.26.1038 King Yudhishthira the just, possessed of great learning, became desirous of doing the last rites to the body of Vidura, and wished to cremate it duly.
Mbh.15.26.1039 An invisible voice was then heard, saying, O king, this body that belonged to him called Vidura should not be cremated.
Mbh.15.28.1106 Hast thou learnt, O king, how the high-souled Vidura, who was Dharma's self, left this world?
Mbh.15.28.1107 Through the curse of Mandavya, the deity of Righteousness became born as Vidura.
Mbh.15.28.1112 At the command of the Grandsire, and through my own energy, Vidura of great intelligence was procreated by me upon a soil owned by Vichitraviryya.
Mbh.15.28.1122 He that is Dharma is Vidura; and he that is Vidura is the eldest son of Pandu.
Mbh.15.29.1134 O learned Brahmana, what that wonderful feat was which the great Rishi Vyasa of high energy accomplished after his promise to the old king, made when Dhritarashtra, that lord of Earth, that foremost one of Kuru's race, had taken up his abode in the forest, with his wife and with his daughter-in-law Kunti; and after, indeed, Vidura had left his own body and entered into Yudhishthira, and at the time when all the sons of Pandu were staying in the ascetic retreat.
Mbh.15.35.1395 Vidura of great wisdom attained to high success through the power of his penances.
