Mbh.4.1.4 Janamejaya said, How did my great-grandfathers, afflicted with the fear of Duryodhana, pass their days undiscovered in the city of Virata?
Mbh.4.1.6 Vaisampayana said, Listen, O lord of men, how thy great grandfathers passed the period of unrecognition in the city of Virata.
Mbh.4.1.20 The aged Virata, king of the Matsyas, is virtuous and powerful and charitable, and is liked by all.
Mbh.4.1.22 Even in the city of Virata, O child, we shall, O Bharata, spend this year, entering his service.
Mbh.4.1.25 O righteous one, in what capacity wilt thou reside in the city of Virata?
Mbh.4.1.30 Yudhishthira replied, Ye sons of the Kuru race, ye bulls among men, hear what I shall do on appearing before king Virata.
Mbh.4.1.36 I tell you that it is thus that I shall pass my days in the city of Virata.
Mbh.4.1.37 What office wilt thou, O Vrikodara, fill in the city of Virata
Mbh.4.2.38 SECTION II Bhima said, I intend to present myself before the lord of Virata as a cook bearing the name of Vallabha.
Mbh.4.2.63 And, O foremost of kings, concealing myself by this means, as fire is concealed by ashes, I shall pass my days agreeably in the palace of Virata
Mbh.4.3.68 Nakula said, Under the name of Granthika, I shall become the keeper of the horses of king Virata.
Mbh.4.3.72 And those persons in the city of Virata that may enquire of me, I shall, O bull of the Bharata race, say, Formerly I was employed by Yudhishthira in the charge of his horses.
Mbh.4.3.73 Thus disguised, O king, I shall spend my days delightfully in the city of Virata.
Mbh.4.6.212 SECTION VI Vaisampayana said, And while Yudhishthira was on his way to the delightful city of Virata, he began to praise mentally the Divine Durga, the Supreme Goddess of the Universe, born on the womb of Yasoda, and fond of the boons bestowed on her by Narayana, sprung from the race of cowherd Nanda, and the giver of prosperity, the enhancer of the glory of the worshipper's family, the terrifier of Kansa, and the destroyer of Asuras, and saluted the Goddess, her who ascended the skies when dashed by Kansa on a stony platform, who is the sister of Vasudeva, one who is always decked in celestial garlands and attired in celestial robes, who is armed with scimitar and shield, and always rescues the worshipper sunk in sin, like a cow in the mire, who in the hours of distress calls upon that eternal giver of blessings for relieving him of their burdens.
Mbh.4.7.258 SECTION VII Vaisampayana said, Then tying up in his cloth dice made of gold and set with lapis lazuli, and holding them below his arm-pit, king Yudhishthira, that illustrious lord of men, that high-souled perpetuator of the Kuru race, regarded by kings, irrepressible in might, and like unto a snake of virulent poison, that bull among men, endued with strength and beauty and prowess, and possessed of greatness, and resembling in form a celestial though now like unto the sun enveloped in dense clouds, or fire covered with ashes, first made his appearance when the famous king Virata was seated in his court.
Mbh.4.7.259 And beholding with his followers that son of Pandu in his court, looking like the moon hid in clouds and possessed of a face beautiful as the full moon, king Virata addressed his counsellors and the twice-born ones and the charioteers and the Vaisyas and others, saying, Enquire ye who it is, so like a king that looketh on my court for the first time.
Mbh.4.7.266 And as the king was indulging in these thoughts, that bull among men, Yudhishthira, came before Virata and addressed him, saying, O great king, know me for a Brahmana who, having lost his all hath come to thee for the means of subsistence.
Mbh.4.7.270 And having appointed the lion among kings in the post he had prayed for, king Virata addressed him with a glad heart, saying, O child, I ask thee from affection, from the dominions of what king dost thou come hither?
Mbh.4.7.274 Virata replied, I will grant thee whatever boon thou mayst desire.
Mbh.4.7.282 Virata replied, I shall certainly slay him who may happen to displease thee, and should be one of the twice-born ones, I shall banish him from my dominions.
Mbh.4.8.292 SECTION VIII Vaisampayana said, Then another endued with the dreadful strength and blazing in beauty, approached king Virata, with the playful gait of the lion.
Mbh.4.8.295 And beholding that king-like person before him, Virata addressed his assembled subjects saying, Who is that youth, that bull among men, with shoulders broad like those of a lion, and so exceedingly beautiful?
Mbh.4.8.301 Thus commanded by king Virata, his swift-footed messengers went up to the son of Kunti and informed that younger brother of Yudhishthira of everything the king had said.
Mbh.4.8.302 Then the high-souled son of Pandu, approaching Virata, addressed him in words that were not unsuited to his object, saying, O foremost of kings, I am a cook, Vallava by name.
Mbh.4.8.305 Virata said, I do not believe, O Vallava, that cooking is thy office.
Mbh.4.8.312 Virata said, I will even grant thee boons.
Mbh.4.8.317 Vaisampayana continued, Thus appointed in the kitchen, Bhima soon became the favourite of king Virata.
Mbh.4.8.318 And, O king, he continued to live there unrecognised by the other servants of Virata as also by other people
Mbh.4.9.365 Surely, O thou of well-rounded hips, O damsel of exquisite charms, beholding thy form of superhuman beauty, king Virata is sure to forsake me, and will turn to thee with his whole heart.
Mbh.4.9.369 Draupadi replied, O fair lady, neither Virata nor any other person will be able to have me, for my five youthful husbands, who are Gandharvas and sons of a Gandharva king of exceeding power, always protect me.
Mbh.4.10.390 Hearing these words, Virata said, Thou must either be a Brahmana or a Kshatriya.
Mbh.4.10.403 Virata said, I have a hundred thousand kine divided into distinct herds.
Mbh.4.10.406 Vaisampayana continued, Then, O king, undiscovered by that monarch, that lord of men, Sahadeva, maintained by Virata, began to live happily.
Mbh.4.11.410 And shaking the very earth with his tread, he approached Virata and stood in his court.
Mbh.4.11.424 Virata said, O Vrihannala, I give thee what thou desirest.
Mbh.4.11.431 And there the mighty Arjuna began giving lessons in singing and instrumental music to the daughter of Virata, her friends, and her waiting-maids, and soon won their good graces.
Mbh.4.12.433 SECTION XII Vaisampayana said, After a while, another powerful son of Pandu was seen making towards king Virata in haste.
Mbh.4.12.444 Virata said, I will give thee vehicles, wealth, and spacious quarters.
Mbh.4.12.455 Virata said, Whatever horses I have, I consign to thy care even from today.
Mbh.4.12.462 Vaisampayana continued, That youth, like unto a chief of the Gandharvas, was treated thus respectfully by the delighted king Virata.
Mbh.4.13.469 By the grace of the sage Trinavindu and of the high-souled lord of justice, the Pandavas continued to live unrecognised by others in the city of Virata.
Mbh.4.13.470 O lord of men, Yudhishthira, as courtier made himself agreeable to Virata and his sons as also to all the Matsyas.
Mbh.4.13.472 And that tiger among men, king Yudhishthira the Just, unknown to the monarch, distributed among his brothers, in due proportion, the wealth he won from Virata.
Mbh.4.13.478 And thus ministering unto one another's wants, those mighty warriors lived in the capital of Virata as hidden from view, as if they were once more in their mother's womb.
Mbh.4.13.517 And when the brave and renowned Jimuta was thus killed, Virata and his friends were filled with great delight.
Mbh.4.13.523 And Nakula pleased Virata, that best of kings, by showing him fleet and well-trained steeds that followed him wherever he went.
Mbh.4.13.525 And beholding around Sahadeva a herd of well-trained bullocks, Virata that bull among men, bestowed upon him also wealth of diverse kinds.
Mbh.4.13.527 And it was in this way that those eminent persons lived there in disguise, rendering services unto king Virata
Mbh.4.14.543 And O thou of beautiful face, whence hast thou come to the city of Virata?
Mbh.4.15.603 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing his profuse lamentations, that gentle lady, the intelligent queen of Virata, was touched with pity.
Mbh.4.16.666 What can I a weak woman do when Virata, deficient in virtue, coolly suffereth my innocent self to be thus wronged by a wretch?
Mbh.4.16.674 And hearing her, Virata said, I do not know what your dispute has been out of our sight.
Mbh.4.18.734 That vile and wicked wretch, O Bharata, known by the name of Kichaka, who is the brother-in-law of king Virata and the commander of his forces, every day, O tiger among men, addresses me who am residing in the palace as a Sairindhri, saying, Do thou become my wife,
Mbh.4.18.749 Having dazzled the entire earth like the sun by his energy, that Yudhishthira, alas, is now a courtier of king Virata.
Mbh.4.19.759 Alas, when thy work of the kitchen is over, thou humbly sittest beside Virata, calling thyself as Vallava the cook, then despondency seizeth my heart.
Mbh.4.19.785 When I behold, the godlike Partha in the music-hall like an elephant with rent temples surrounded by she-elephants in the midst of females, waiting before Virata the king of the Matsyas, then I lose all sense of directions.
Mbh.4.19.792 Seeing that hero of proud disposition gratifying Virata, by living at the head of his cowherds, attired in robes dyed in red.
Mbh.4.19.804 Alas, I now see that handsome youth wait upon the gorgeously decked and excellent Virata, the king of the Matsyas, and display horses before him.
Mbh.4.20.847 And she continued, she who had never feared Kunti herself nor thee and thy brothers, now standeth in fear before Virata as a slave, anxious of what that king of kings may say unto her regarding the proper preparation of the unguents, for Matsya liketh not sandal pounded by others'
Mbh.4.21.897 The principal ally of king Virata in war, the cruel Kichaka reft of virtue is loved by both the king and the queen.
Mbh.4.22.931 This Virata is in name only the king of the Matsyas.
Mbh.4.23.1033 And then they addressed Virata, saying, It is for her sake that Kichaka hath lost his life.
Mbh.4.23.1036 Thus addressed by them, king Virata, O monarch, knowing fully well the prowess of the Suta gave his assent to Sairindhri being burnt along with the Suta's son.
Mbh.4.24.1073 Hearing those words of theirs, Virata, that lord of hosts, said unto them, Do ye perform the last rites of the Sutas.
Mbh.4.24.1112 They will then convey me hence and do what would be agreeable to Virata.
Mbh.4.30.1227 Crooked and wrathful and of wicked soul, of prowess famed over all the world, sinful in deeds and highly cruel, that wretch, however, hath been slain by the Gandharvas, Kichaka being dead, king Virata, shorn of pride and his refuge gone, will, I imagine, lose all courage I think, we ought now to invade that kingdom, if it pleases thee, O sinless one, as also the illustrious Karna and all the Kauravas.
Mbh.4.30.1248 Let the Trigartas, however, suddenly repair to the city of Virata, and coming upon the cowherds, seize that immense wealth of kine.
Mbh.4.30.1250 Vaisampayana continued, Then, O Lord of earth, those warriors, the Trigartas, accompanied by their infantry of terrible prowess, marched towards the south-eastern direction, intending to wage hostilities with Virata from the desire of seizing his kine.
Mbh.4.31.1254 And after Kichaka had been slain, that slayer of hostile heroes, the mighty king Virata began to rest his hopes on the sons of Kunti.
Mbh.4.31.1256 And when the cattle had been seized, the herdsman of Virata came with great speed to the city, and saw his sovereign, the king of Matsyas, seated on the throne in the midst of wise councillors, and those bulls among men, the sons of Pandu, and surrounded by brave warriors decked with ear-rings and bracelets.
Mbh.4.31.1257 And appearing before that enhancer of his dominion, King Virata seated in court, the herdsman bowed down unto him, and addressed him, saying, O foremost of kings, defeating and humiliating us in battle along with our friends the Trigartas are seizing thy cattle by hundreds and by thousands.
Mbh.4.31.1276 And those repressers of foes then donned those beautiful coats of mail, invulnerable and easy to wear, that Virata had ordered for those heroes of spotless fame.
Mbh.4.31.1281 And, O bull among the Bharatas, that force of Virata, O king, as it marched forth marking the footprints of the cattle looked exceedingly beautiful.
Mbh.4.31.1282 And on its march that foremost of armies owned by Virata, crowded with soldiers armed with strong weapons, and abounding in elephants, horses and cars, looked really splendid
Mbh.4.32.1304 And that foremost of car-warriors, king Virata also, with Suryadatta in his van and Madiraksha in his rear, having destroyed in that conflict five hundred cars, eight hundred horses, and five warriors on great cars, displayed various skilful manoeuvres on his car on that field of battle.
Mbh.4.32.1310 Then king Virata pierced Susarman with ten shafts and each of his four horses also with five shafts.
Mbh.4.33.1320 And king Susarman, the lord of the Trigartas having by his energy oppressed and defeated the whole army of the Matsyas, impetuously rushed towards Virata himself endued with great energy.
Mbh.4.33.1322 Then afflicting him sorely, like a lustful man afflicting a defenceless damsel, Susarman placed Virata on his own car, and speedily rushed out of the field.
Mbh.4.33.1323 And when the powerful Virata, deprived of his car, was taken captive, the Matsyas, harrassed solely by the Trigartas, began to flee in fear in all directions.
Mbh.4.33.1339 And Bhima then rushed furiously towards Susarman of terrible deeds, and assuring Virata with the words, O good king
Mbh.4.33.1347 And soon again hundreds of thousands of cars and elephants and horses and horsemen and brave and fierce bowmen were overthrown by Bhima in the very sight of Virata.
Mbh.4.33.1363 And thereat, leaping down from Susarman's car, and securing the latter's mace the powerful Virata ran in pursuit of him.
Mbh.4.34.1393 And liberated from slavery, he went to king Virata, and having saluted the monarch, took his departure.
Mbh.4.34.1395 And Virata gratified those mighty warriors, the sons of Kunti, possessed of super-human prowess with wealth and honour.
Mbh.4.34.1396 And Virata said, All these gems of mine are now as much mine as yours.
Mbh.4.34.1403 Thus answered, that foremost of kings, Virata the lord of the Matsyas, again addressed Yudhishthira, saying, Come, we will install thee in sovereignty of the Matsyas.
Mbh.4.35.1416 SECTION XXXV Vaisampayana said, When the king of the Matsyas, anxious of recovering the kine, had set out in pursuit of the Trigartas, Duryodhana with his counsellors invaded the dominions of Virata.
Mbh.4.35.1417 And Bhishma and Drona, and Karna, and Kripa acquainted with the best of weapons, Aswatthaman, and Suvala's son, and Dussasana, O lord of men, and Vivingsati and Vikarna and Chitrasena endued with great energy, and Durmukha and Dussaha, these and many other great warriors, coming upon the Matsya dominion speedily drove off the cowherds of king Virata and forcibly took away the kine.
Mbh.4.37.1470 And the faultless and auspicious daughter of Virata, of fine teeth and slender-waist, of thighs close unto each other and each like the trunk of an elephant, her person embellished with an excellent garland, sought the son of Pritha like a she-elephant seeking her mate.
Mbh.4.38.1505 SECTION XXXVIII Vaisampayana said, Having issued forth from the city, the dauntless son of Virata addressed his charioteer, saying, Proceed whither the Kurus are.
Mbh.4.38.1514 And beholding that mighty host abounding in elephants, horses and chariots, and protected by Karna and Duryodhana and Kripa and Santanu's son, and that intelligent and great bowman Drona, with his son Aswatthaman, the son of Virata, agitated with fear and the bristles on his body standing on their ends, thus spake unto Partha, I dare not fight with the Kurus.
Mbh.4.38.1554 Virata left a single son of his in the empty city.
Mbh.4.38.1561 And seized by Arjuna, the son of Virata began to lament most woefully like one in great affliction, and said, Listen, O good Vrihannala, O thou of handsome waist.
Mbh.4.38.1573 Thus speaking unto Uttara, the son of Virata, Vibhatsu, heretofore unconquered in battle, for a while comforted him.
Mbh.4.44.1674 Arjuna said, I will, O son of Virata, tell thee my ten names.
Mbh.4.44.1691 Vaisampayana continued, The son of Virata then, approaching nearer saluted Partha and said, My name is Bhuminjaya, and I am also called Uttara.
Mbh.4.45.1713 Ridden by myself wielding the Gandiva, this car will be incapable of being vanquished by the hostile host, O son of Virata, let thy fear be dispelled'
Mbh.4.53.2038 There will I fight, O son of Virata, for there the battle will not be fruitless, Defeating him I will come back, taking away the kine'
Mbh.4.53.2039 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed, the son of Virata restrained the steeds with an effort and turned them by a pull at the bridle from the spot where those bulls of the Kuru race were, and urged them on towards the place where Duryodhana was.
Mbh.4.54.2059 Thus addressed, the son of Virata by means of those large steeds endued with the speed of the wind and furnished with golden armour, broke that array of cars and took the Pandava into the midst of the battle-field.
Mbh.4.55.2131 And beholding those soldiers break and give way the son of Virata desirous of knowing Partha's purpose, addressed him on the field of battle, and said, O Partha, standing on this beautiful car, with myself as charioteer, towards which division shall I go?
Mbh.4.57.2174 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words of Dhananjaya, the son of Virata urged, without a moment's delay, those steeds of silvery hue decked in golden armour.
Mbh.4.57.2178 And wheeling round, the intrepid and mighty son of Virata at last approached the car of Kripa, and stood confronting him.
Mbh.4.57.2213 Then the son of Virata, turning the steed to the left began to perform circuitous evolution called Yamaka and thus withstood all those warriors.
Mbh.4.58.2263 And the fierce and terrible encounter that took place between the illustrious Drona and Arjuna resembled that between Virata and Vasava of old.
Mbh.4.59.2299 And they shot arrows at each other like Virata and Vasava.
Mbh.4.61.2360 SECTION LXI Vaisampayana said, Having defeated Vikartana's son, Arjuna said unto the son of Virata, Take me towards that division where yonder device of a golden palmyra is seen.
Mbh.4.61.2381 Vaisampayana continued, Having said this unto Virata's son, that best of men and foremost of car-warriors, the mighty-armed Arjuna, again addressed the son of Virata, saying.
Mbh.4.61.2402 Vaisampayana continued, Thus assured by Savyasachin, the son of Virata penetrated into that fierce array of cars protected by Bhishma.
Mbh.4.61.2407 Then the heroic Dussasana pierced the son of Virata with a crescent-shaped arrow and he pierced Arjuna with another arrow in the breast.
Mbh.4.65.2545 And the son of Virata then urged the four handsome steeds with flanks adorned with golden armours.
Mbh.4.66.2569 SECTION LXVI Vaisampayana said, Having vanquished the Kurus in battle, that one with eyes like those of a bull brought back that profuse cattle wealth of Virata.
Mbh.4.66.2579 And the Kauravas were unable to confront Arjuna while after routing the foe he proceeded towards the city of Virata, like an elephant with rent temples.
Mbh.4.66.2591 And that illustrious hero entered the city of Virata, with a cheerful heart rehabilitating himself as Vrihannala, the car-driver of Uttara'
Mbh.4.66.2598 And having vanquished the whole hostile army and recovered the whole of the wealth from the Kurus, the heroic son of Virata returned to the city with Vrihannala as his car-driver
Mbh.4.67.2599 SECTION LXVII Vaisampayana said, Having speedily recovered his wealth Virata owning a large army entered his city with a cheerful heart, accompanied by the four Pandavas.
Mbh.4.67.2603 And Virata, the king of the Matsyas owning a large army, enquired after Uttara, saying, Where hath Uttara gone'
Mbh.4.67.2605 Vaisampayana continued, Then king Virata, hearing that his brave son had gone forth with only one car and with Vrihannala as his car-driver, became filled with grief, and addressing his chief counsellors, said, Without doubt, the Kauravas and other lords of earth, learning the defeat of the Trigartas, will never keep their ground.
Mbh.4.67.2608 And it was thus that Virata, the king of the Matsyas, owning a large army, quickly ordered out a large division consisting of four kinds of troops.
Mbh.4.67.2611 Vaisampayana continued, Then king Yudhishthira the just, smilingly said unto the afflicted king Virata, If, O monarch, Vrihannala hath been his charioteer, the foe will never be able to take away thy kine today.
Mbh.4.67.2618 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing of the victory of his son possessed of immeasurable might, king Virata became so glad that the bristles of his body stood erect.
Mbh.4.67.2623 Vaisampayana continued, Having listened to these words of the king, all the citizens with auspicious things in hand, and many amongst them with cymbals and trumpets and conchs, and beautiful women attired in gorgeous robes, and reciters of auspicious and sacred hymns, accompanied by encomiasts and minstrels, and drummers and other kinds of musicians issued forth from the city of the mighty Virata to welcome Uttara of immeasurable prowess.
Mbh.4.67.2630 Virata said, My female slaves and kine, my gold and whatsoever other wealth I have, nothing of all this shall thou be able to protect today even if I do not gamble'
Mbh.4.67.2650 Virata said, Repeatedly forbidden by me, thou dost not yet restrain thy tongue.
Mbh.4.67.2663 Inflamed with rage he will never bear patiently to see me bleeding, but will slay Virata even now with his counsellors and troops and steeds
Mbh.4.68.2668 Virata said, This crooked Brahmana hath been struck by me.
Mbh.4.68.2673 Vaisampayana continued, Having heard the words of his son, Virata, that enhancer of the limits of his kingdom, began to soothe Kunti's son, who was like unto a fire hid in ashes, for obtaining his forgiveness.
Mbh.4.68.2679 Vaisampayana continued, When the bleeding had stopped, Vrihannala entered the council-room and having saluted both Virata and Kanka, stood silent.
Mbh.4.69.2708 Virata said, Where is that mighty-armed and famous youth of celestial origin, that hero who recovered in battle my wealth that had been seized by the Kurus?
Mbh.4.69.2712 Vaisampayana continued, Virata, that owner of a large army, remained ignorant of the son of Pandu who was thus described unto him by Uttara, and who was living in the palace in disguise.
Mbh.4.69.2713 And permitted by the high-souled Virata, Partha presented with his own hands the garments he had brought, unto Virata's daughter.
Mbh.4.70.2716 And having entered the council-hall of Virata, they took their seats on the thrones reserved for kings, and shone brilliantly like fires on the sacrificial altar.
Mbh.4.70.2717 And after Pandavas had taken their seats, Virata, that lord of earth, came there for holding his council and discharging other royal offices.
Mbh.4.70.2722 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words of Virata, O king, and desirous of jesting with him, Arjuna smilingly said in reply, This person, O king, deserveth to occupy the same seat with Indra himself.
Mbh.4.71.2746 SECTION LXXI Virata said, If this one, indeed, be the Kuru king Yudhisthira the son of Kunti, which amongst these is his brother Arjuna, and which, the mighty Bhima.
Mbh.4.71.2758 Vaisampayana continued, After Arjuna had pointed out those heroes, the five Pandavas, the son of Virata then spoke of Arjuna's prowess.
Mbh.4.71.2776 Virata said, When brought under the foe's subjection in battle, it was Bhimasena that rescued me.
Mbh.4.71.2783 Vaisampayana continued, Then the high-souled Virata, delighted greatly, approached king Yudhishthira and made an alliance with him, and offered him his whole kingdom together with the sceptre and treasury and metropolis.
Mbh.4.71.2785 And having again and again embraced Yudhishthira and Bhima and the sons of Madri, and smelt their heads, Virata, that owner of a large army, was not satiated with gazing at them.
Mbh.4.72.2794 SECTION LXXII Virata said, Why, O best among the Pandavas, dost thou not wish to accept as wife this my daughter that I bestow upon thee'
Mbh.4.72.2807 Virata said, It behoveth the best of the Kurus, Dhananjaya, the son of Kunti, who is so virtuous and wise, to say this.
Mbh.4.72.2811 And, O Bharata, the son of Kunti sent invitations to Vasudeva and to all his friends and relatives, and Virata also did the same.
Mbh.4.72.2824 And then conchs and cymbals and horns and drums and other musical instruments appointed by the Pandavas, began to play in the palace of Virata.
Mbh.4.72.2834 And Virata then gave him as dowry seven thousand steeds endued with the speed of the wind and two hundred elephants of the best kind and much wealth also.
Mbh.4.72.2835 And having duly poured libations of clarified butter on the blazing fire, and paid homage unto the twice-born ones, Virata offered to the Pandavas his kingdom, army, treasury, and his own self.
