MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.206 Suhotra; Rantideva, and Kakshivanta, great in glory; Valhika, Damana, Saryati, Ajita, and Nala; Viswamitra the destroyer of foes; Amvarisha, great in strength; Marutta, Manu, Ikshaku, Gaya, and Bharata; Rama the son of Dasaratha; Sasavindu, and Bhagiratha; Kritavirya, the greatly fortunate, and Janamejaya too; and Yayati of good deeds who performed sacrifices, being assisted therein by the celestials themselves, and by whose sacrificial altars and stakes this earth with her habited and uninhabited regions hath been marked all over.
Mbh.1.71.3750 My father Kanwa, in answer to that Rishi's enquiries, said, Viswamitra, of old, having been engaged in the austerest penances alarmed Indra, the chief of the celestials, who thought that the mighty ascetic of blazing energy would, by his penances, hurl him down from his high seat in heaven'
Mbh.1.71.3754 This great ascetic Viswamitra like unto the Sun in splendour, is engaged in the most severe of penances.
Mbh.1.71.3757 Thou must see that Viswamitra of soul rapt in contemplation and engaged in the austerest penances, who might hurl me down from my seat.
Mbh.1.71.3760 Hearing all this, Menaka replied, The illustrious Viswamitra is endued with great energy and is a mighty ascetic.
Mbh.1.71.3767 It was Viswamitra whose wife, in a season of distress, was maintained by the royal sage Matanga Trisanku who was then living under a father's curse as a hunter.
Mbh.1.71.3768 It was Viswamitra who, on returning after the famine was over, changed the name of the stream having his asylum from Kausik into Para.
Mbh.1.71.3769 It was Viswamitra who in return for the services of Matanga, himself became the latter's priest for purposes of a sacrifice.
Mbh.1.71.3771 It was Viswamitra who in anger created a second world and numerous stars beginning with Sravana.
Mbh.1.72.3789 And the timid and beautiful Menaka then entered the retreat and saw there Viswamitra who had burnt, by his penances, all his sins, and was engaged still in ascetic penances.
Mbh.1.72.3793 And she did all this before the very eyes of Viswamitra who was endued with energy like that of fire.
Mbh.1.72.3794 And Viswamitra saw her in that attitude.
Mbh.1.74.3993 Descending from heaven on Earth, after intercourse with Viswamitra, she gave birth to me.
Mbh.1.74.4003 Thy father too of the Kshatriya race, the lustful Viswamitra, who was tempted to become a Brahmana, is destitute of all affection.
Mbh.1.95.5257 And Dushmanta took to wife Sakuntala, the daughter of Viswamitra.
Mbh.1.123.6648 The sons of Kadru Nagas, the son of Vinata, the Gandharvas, the lords of the creation, and the seven great Rishis, viz, Bharadwaja, Kasyapa, Gautama, Viswamitra, Jamadagni, Vasishtha, and the illustrious Atri who illumined the world of old when the Sun was lost, all came there.
Mbh.1.139.7420 Viswamitra and others born Kshatriyas have obtained the eternal Brahma.
Mbh.1.175.8962 Though his wrath was excited by Viswamitra's offence, that high-souled Rishi did not yet exterminate Kusikas the tribe whose king Viswamitra was.
Mbh.1.175.8963 Afflicted at the loss of his sons, he did not, as though powerless, though really otherwise, do any dreadful act destructive of Viswamitra, Like the ocean transgressing not its continents, Vasishtha transgressed not the laws of Yama by bringing back his children from the domains of the king of the dead.
Mbh.1.175.8971 Section CLXXVII Chaitraratha Parva continued Vaisampayana continued, Hearing this, Arjuna said, O Gandharva, whence arose the hostility between Viswamitra and Vasishtha both of whom dwelt in a celestial hermitage?
Mbh.1.175.8976 The virtuous Gadhi had a son named Viswamitra, that grinder of foes, possessing a large army and many animals and vehicles.
Mbh.1.175.8977 And Viswamitra, accompanied by his ministers, used to roam in quest of deer through the deep woods and over picturesque marascetic penances the propitious lord Vivaswat, by the help of Vasishtha's ascetic power.
Mbh.1.176.9002 The monarch arrived in that state at the asylum of Vasishtha, and the blessed and illustrious Rishi beholding him arrive, reverenced with his homage that best of men, king Viswamitra.
Mbh.1.176.9013 Hearing these words of Viswamitra, Vasishtha said, O sinless one, this cow hath been kept by me for the sake of the gods, guests, and the Pitris, as also for my sacrifices.
Mbh.1.176.9015 Viswamitra replied, I am a Kshatriya, but thou art a Brahmana devoted to asceticism and study.
Mbh.1.176.9021 The Gandharva continued, Thus addressed by Vasishtha, Viswamitra, O Partha, then forcibly seized Nandini, that cow white like the swan or the moon, and attempted to take her away, afflicting her with stripes and persecuting her otherwise.
Mbh.1.176.9025 But, O Nandini, even Viswamitra is taking thee away by force, what can I do in this matter, as I am a forgiving Brahmana'
Mbh.1.176.9026 The Gandharva continued, Then, O bull in Bharata's race, Nandini, alarmed at the sight of Viswamitra's troops and terrified by Viswamitra himself, approached the Rishi still closer, and said, O illustrious one, why art thou so indifferent to my poor self afflicted with the stripes of the cruel troops of Viswamitra and crying so piteously as if I were masterless'
Mbh.1.176.9042 And that vast army of Mlechchhas in various uniforms, and armed with various weapons, as soon as it sprang into life, deploying in the very sight of Viswamitra, attacked that monarch's soldiers.
Mbh.1.176.9043 And so numerous was that Mlechchha host that each particular soldier of Viswamitra was attacked by a band of six or seven of their enemies.
Mbh.1.176.9048 Viswamitra, beholding this wonderful feat that resulted from Brahmana prowess, became disgusted with Kshatriya prowess and said, O, fie on Kshatriya prowess!
Mbh.1.177.9058 The great Viswamitra, endued with energy, had, a little while ago, desired to make that monarch his disciple.
Mbh.1.177.9072 At this time Viswamitra, between whom and Vasishtha there was a dispute about the discipleship of Kalmashapada, approached the place where that monarch and Vasishtha's son were.
Mbh.1.177.9073 And, O Partha, that Rishi of severe ascetic penances, viz, Viswamitra of great energy, approached the pair knowing by his spiritual insight that they had been thus quarrelling with each other.
Mbh.1.177.9075 And, O Bharata, Viswamitra, desirous of benefiting himself, remained on that spot, concealed from the sight of both by making himself invisible.
Mbh.1.177.9077 And, O chief of the Kurus, Viswamitra, ascertaining the disposition of the king and fearing that the difference might be made up, ordered a Rakshasa to enter the body of the king.
Mbh.1.177.9079 And knowing, O chastiser of foes, that the Rakshasa had possessed himself of the monarch, that best of Rishis, Viswamitra, then left the spot and went away.
Mbh.1.177.9100 Beholding Saktri thus slain and devoured, Viswamitra repeatedly urged that Rakshasa who was within the monarch against the other sons of Vasishtha.
Mbh.1.177.9102 But Vasishtha, learning that all his sons had been caused to be slain by Viswamitra, patiently bore his grief like the great mountain that bears the earth.
Mbh.1.182.9290 And, O Parasara, Viswamitra was only a blind instrument in that matter.
Mbh.3.83.4288 There in that tirtha is another, O chief of the Bharatas, that belongeth to Viswamitra.
Mbh.3.84.4570 Then should one, O king, go to the lake of the Muni Kausika, where Kusika's son, Viswamitra, obtained high success.
Mbh.3.85.4733 Those foremost of Rishis, Valmiki, and Kasyapa, and Atreya, and Kundajathara, and Viswamitra, and Gautama, and Asita, and Devala, and Markandeya, and Galava, and Bharadwaja, and Vasishtha, and the Muni Uddalaka, and Saunaka with his son, and Vyasa, that best of ascetics, and Durvasas, that foremost of Munis, and Javali of great austerities, all these illustrious Rishis endued with wealth of asceticism, are staying in expectation of thee.
Mbh.3.87.4788 And, O bull among the Bharatas, there also, in that place, is the Kausiki, whose basin abounds in various fruit and roots, and where Viswamitra endued with wealth of asceticism acquired Brahmanahood.
Mbh.3.87.4790 They say that in the country of Panchala, there is a wood called Utpala, where Viswamitra of Kusika's race had performed sacrifices with his son, and where beholding the relics of Viswamitra's superhuman power, Rama, the son of Jamadagni, recited the praises of his ancestry.
Mbh.3.89.4849 There, O subjugator of hostile cities, is the sacred river called Viswamitra belonging to the royal sage of that name and which abounds, O king, in many sacred tirthas.
Mbh.3.110.5673 Then after having washed thyself in the Nanda, thou wilt repair to the river Kausiki, the spot where the most excellent and severest form of penances was practised by Viswamitra.
Mbh.3.110.5677 and this is the delightful hermitage of Viswamitra, conspicuous here.
Mbh.3.225.11373 The great Muni Viswamitra had, after the conclusion of the sacrifices of the seven Rishis, followed unseen the god of fire, while the latter was tortured with lust.
Mbh.3.230.11701 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed by the Pandava in that assembly of Rishis, the worshipful Markandeya of high ascetic merit replied, Agneya Son of Agni, Skanda Cast-off, Diptakirti Of blazing fame, Anamaya Always hale, Mayuraketu Peacock-bannered, Dharmatman The virtuous-souled, Bhutesa The lord of all creatures, Mahishardana The slayer of Mahisha, Kamajit The subjugator of desires, Kamada The fulfiller of desires, Kanta The handsome, Satyavak The truthful in speech, Bhuvaneswara The lord of the universe, Sisu The child, Sighra The quick, Suchi The pure, Chanda The fiery, Diptavarna The bright-complexioned, Subhanana Of beautiful face, Amogha Incapable of being baffled, Anagha The sinless, Rudra The terrible, Priya The favourite, Chandranana Of face like the moon, Dipta-sasti The wielder of the blazing lance, Prasantatman Of tranquil soul, Bhadrakrit The doer of good, Kutamahana The chamber of even the wicked, Shashthipriya True favourite of Shashthi, Pavitra The holy, Matrivatsala The reverencer of his mother, Kanya-bhartri The protector of virgins, Vibhakta Diffused over the universe, Swaheya The son of Swaha, Revatisuta The child of Revati, Prabhu The Lord, Neta The leader, Visakha Reared up by Visakha, Naigameya Sprang from the Veda, Suduschara Difficult of propitiation, Suvrata Of excellent vows, Lalita The beautiful, Valakridanaka-priya Fond of toys, Khacharin The ranger of skies, Brahmacharin The chaste, Sura The brave, Saravanodbhava Born in a forest of heath, Viswamitra priya The favourite of Viswamitra, Devasena-priya The lover of Devasena, Vasudeva-priya The beloved of Vasudeva, and Priya-krit The doer of agreeable things, these are the divine names of Kartikeya.
Mbh.5.106.4912 In ancient times, in order to test Viswamitra, who was then engaged in ascetic austerities Dharma personally came to him, having assumed the form of the Rishi, Vasishtha.
Mbh.5.106.4914 Thereupon, Viswamitra struck with awe, began to cook Charu which was a preparation of rice and milk.
Mbh.5.106.4916 And it was not till after the guest had dined on the food offered by the other hermits that Viswamitra succeeded in approaching him with the Charu he had cooked and which was still steaming.
Mbh.5.106.4919 And thereupon, the illustrious Viswamitra, O king, waited there.
Mbh.5.106.4923 And beholding the great Rishi Viswamitra, who was endued with high wisdom, standing there with that food on his head, himself subsisting all the while on air, Dharma accepted that food which was still warm and fresh.
Mbh.5.106.4926 And at those words of Dharma, Viswamitra divested of Kshatriyahood because endued with the status of a Brahmana and was filled with delight.
Mbh.5.106.4927 And pleased as he was with the services and devotion of his discipline, the ascetic Galava, Viswamitra, addressed him and said, With my leave, O Galava, go whithersoever thou mayest wish'
Mbh.5.106.4928 Thus commanded by his preceptor, Galava, highly pleased, said in a sweet voice unto Viswamitra of great effulgence, What final gift shall I make thee in consequence of thy services as preceptor?
Mbh.5.106.4935 The illustrious Viswamitra knew that he had really been conquered by Galava by means of the latter's services, and the Rishi, therefore, sought to dismiss him by repeatedly saying, Go, Go'
Mbh.5.106.4936 But thou repeatedly commanded by Viswamitra to go away, Galava still addressed him saying, What shall I give'
Mbh.5.106.4937 And seeing this obstinacy on the part of ascetic Galava, Viswamitra felt a slight rise of anger and at last said, Give me eight hundred steeds, every one of which should be as white as the rays of the moon, and every one of which should have one ear black.
Mbh.5.107.4939 SECTION CVII Narada said, Thus addressed by Viswamitra of great intelligence Galava was filled with such anxiety that he could not sit or lie down, or take his food.
Mbh.5.113.5175 And it so happened that Viswamitra met Galava on the way.
Mbh.5.113.5181 Hearing these words, Garuda addressed cheerless Galava who was overwhelmed with sorrow, saying, What Viswamitra said unto thee before hath now been repeated in my presence.
Mbh.5.114.5202 He had been, O monarch, a disciple of Viswamitra for many thousand years.
Mbh.5.114.5203 This holy Brahmana, when commanded by Viswamitra to go away whithersoever he chose, addressed his preceptor at that time, saying, I desire to give something as preceptor's fee.
Mbh.5.114.5204 Knowing this one's resources to be poor, Viswamitra did not ask for anything.
Mbh.5.114.5207 It was thus that Viswamitra endued with wealth of asceticism said unto him in anger.
Mbh.5.117.5285 And the royal sage then sported with her, as Surya with Prabhavati, Agni with Swaha, Vasava with Sachi, Chandra with Rohini, Yama with Urmila, Varuna with Gauri, Kuvera with Riddhi, Narayana with Lakshmi, Sagara with Jahnavi, Rudra with Rudrani, the Grandsire with Saraswati, Vasishtha's son Saktri with Adrisyanti, Vasishtha with Arundhati called also Akshamala, Chyavana with Sukanya, Pulastya with Sandhya, Agastya with the princess of Vidarbha Lopamudra, Satyavan with Savitri, Bhrigu with Puloma, Kasyapa with Aditi, Richika's son Jamadagni with Renuka, Kusika's son Viswamitra with Himavati, Vrihaspati with Tara, Sukra with Sataprava, Bhumipati with Bhumi, Pururavas with Urvasi, Richika with Satyavati, Manu with Saraswati, Dushyanta with Sakuntala, the eternal Dharma with Dhriti, Nala with Damayanti, Narada, with Satyavati, Jaratkaru with Jaratkaru, Pulastya with Pratichya, Urnayus with Menaka, Tumvuru with Rambha, Vasuki with Satasirsha, Dhananjaya with Kamari, Rama with the princess of Videha Sita, or Janardana with Rukmini.
Mbh.5.119.5329 Do thou then, O virtuous one, present unto Viswamitra this maiden as an equivalent for two hundred steeds, along with the six hundred thou hast already obtained.
Mbh.5.119.5331 Galava then, saying, So be it' and taking with him both the maiden and the steeds, went with Garuda in his company unto Viswamitra.
Mbh.5.119.5338 Viswamitra then, beholding Galava in the company of the bird, and that highly beautiful maiden, said, Why, O Galava, didst thou not give me this maiden before?
Mbh.5.119.5342 Saying this, Viswamitra of great effulgence began to pass his time happily with her, And Madhavi bore him a son of the name of Ashtaka.
Mbh.5.119.5343 And as soon as that son was born, the great Muni Viswamitra addressed him to both virtue and profit, and gave him those six hundred steeds.

Mbh.12.49.2602 Kusika's son Gadhi begot a son named Viswamitra.
Mbh.12.49.2628 The grandson of Viswamitra and son of Raivya, possessed of great ascetic merit, named Paravasu, O monarch, began to cast imputations on Rama in public, saying, O Rama, were not those righteous men, viz, Pratardana and others, who were assembled at a sacrifice at the time of Yayati's fall, Kshatriyas by birth?
Mbh.12.140.8405 In this connection is cited the old story of the discourse between Viswamitra and the Chandala in a hamlet inhabited by Chandalas.
Mbh.12.140.8433 The holy and great Rishi Viswamitra, possessed of great intelligence, wandered homeless and afflicted with hunger.
Mbh.12.140.8445 The great Rishi Viswamitra, urged by pangs of hunger and engaged in search after food, entered that hamlet and endeavoured his best to find something to eat.
Mbh.12.140.8464 Having formed this resolution, the great sage Viswamitra laid himself down for sleep in that place where the Chandala was.
Mbh.12.140.8465 Seeing some time after that the night had advanced and that the whole Chandala hamlet had fallen asleep, the holy Viswamitra, quietly rising up, entered that hut.
Mbh.12.140.8473 Filled with fear, his face crimson with blushes of shame, and his heart agitated by anxiety caused by that act of theft which he had attempted, he answered, saying, O thou that art blest with a long life, I am Viswamitra.
Mbh.12.140.8478 Conciliating the Chandala, Viswamitra said, I am exceedingly hungry and about to die of starvation.
Mbh.12.140.8505 Thus addressed, O king, the great Rishi Viswamitra, afflicted by hunger, O bull of Bharata's race, once more said, A long time has passed away without my having taken any food.
Mbh.12.140.8525 Viswamitra said, Any other kind of meat is not to be easily had during a famine like this.
Mbh.12.140.8533 Viswamitra said, The great Rishi Agastya, while hungry, ate up the Asura named Vatapi.
Mbh.12.140.8541 Viswamitra said, They that are called good are authorities in matters of duty.
Mbh.12.140.8547 Viswamitra said, A man who is a Rishi cannot do what is sinful
Mbh.12.140.8554 Viswamitra said, I am a Brahmana.
Mbh.12.140.8562 Viswamitra said, As regards myself, I am observant of rigid vows and my heart is set on peace.
Mbh.12.140.8570 Viswamitra said, Kine continue to drink, regardless of the croaking of the frogs.
Mbh.12.140.8577 Viswamitra said, If thou be a friend desirous of my happiness, do thou then raise me up from this distress.
Mbh.12.140.8581 Viswamitra said, By committing this sinful act today I shall certainly save my life which is very sacred.
Mbh.12.140.8587 Viswamitra said, In accepting an unclean present or in eating unclean food there is sin.
Mbh.12.140.8592 Viswamitra said, It is not seen that a person incurs a grave sin by eating forbidden food.
Mbh.12.140.8598 Viswamitra then, of cultivated understanding, took away that haunch of dog's meat.
Mbh.12.140.8605 Viswamitra, however, having completed the rites in honour of the gods and the Pitris and having gratified them duly, himself ate that meat.
Mbh.12.207.12592 Atreya, and Vasishtha, and the great Rishi Kasyapa, and Gautama, Bharadwaja, and Viswamitra, the son of Kusika, and the illustrious son of the high-souled Richika, viz, Jamadagni, these seven live in the north.

Mbh.13.3.248 SECTION III Yudhishthira said, If, O prince, Brahmanahood be so difficult of attainment by the three classes Kshatriyas, Vaisyas and Sudras, how then did the high souled Viswamitra, O king, though a Kshatriya by birth, attain to the status of a Brahmana?
Mbh.13.3.254 Sunasepha of austere penances, the son of Richika, having been sought to be slain as an animal in the great sacrifice of Amvarisha, obtained his deliverance through Viswamitra.
