MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.30.1780 And He of a thousand sacrifices Indra, with the other gods, perplexed with fear at the sight of those dark forebodings spoke unto Vrihaspati thus, Why, O worshipful one, have these natural disturbances suddenly arisen?
Mbh.1.30.1782 Vrihaspati answered, O chief of the gods, O thou of a thousand sacrifices, it is from thy fault and carelessness, and owing also to the ascetic penance of the high-souled great Rishis, the Valakhilyas, that the son of Kasyapa and Vinata, a ranger of the skies endued with great strength and possessing the capacity of assuming at will any form, is approaching to take away the Soma.
Mbh.1.30.1787 Vrihaspati has told me that his strength is immeasurable'
Mbh.1.60.2887 And the king with the approval of his Sadasyas, gave the Rishi a golden seat as Indra did to Vrihaspati.
Mbh.1.66.3314 It is well-known in the world that Angiras's sons are three, Vrihaspati, Utathya, and Samvarta, all of rigid vows.
Mbh.1.66.3347 And the sister of Vrihaspati, the first of women, uttering the sacred truth, engaged in ascetic penances, roamed over the whole earth; and she became the wife of Prabhasa, the eighth Vasu.
Mbh.1.66.3369 Garuda the son of Vinata and the mighty Aruna also, and the illustrious Vrihaspati are reckoned among the Adityas.
Mbh.1.67.3490 And, O monarch, know thou that Drona, the son of Bharadwaja, not born of any woman, sprung from a portion of the celestial Rishi Vrihaspati of grand achievements.
Mbh.1.76.4198 The gods, then, from desire of victory, installed the son of Angiras Vrihaspati as their priest to conduct their sacrifices; while their opponents installed the learned Usanas as their priest for the same purpose.
Mbh.1.76.4203 But the open-minded Vrihaspati could not revive them, because he knew not the science called Sanjivani re-vivification which Kavya endued with great energy knew so well.
Mbh.1.76.4205 And the gods, in great anxiety of heart and entertaining a fear of the learned Usanas, then went to Kacha, the eldest son of Vrihaspati, and spoke unto him, saying, We pay court to thee, be kind to us and do us a service that we regard as very great.
Mbh.1.76.4214 The son of Vrihaspati, thus solicited by the gods, said So be it, and went to where Vrishaparvan was.
Mbh.1.76.4217 I am the grandson of the Rishi Angiras and son of Vrihaspati.
Mbh.1.76.4223 I will treat thee with regard; for by so doing, it is Vrihaspati who will be regarded'
Mbh.1.76.4233 They then slew Kacha from their hatred of Vrihaspati and also from their desire of protecting the knowledge of reviving the dead from being conveyed by him.
Mbh.1.76.4251 They heard me answer, I am the son of Vrihaspati'
Mbh.1.76.4265 Sukra hearing this said, O daughter, the son of Vrihaspati hath gone to the region of the dead.
Mbh.1.76.4272 To all this Devayani replied, Why shall I, O father, not grieve for him whose grandfather is old Angiras himself, whose father is Vrihaspati who is an ocean of ascetic merit, who is the grandson of a Rishi and the son also of a Rishi?
Mbh.1.76.4300 Then Sukra said, O son of Vrihaspati, thou art, indeed, one already crowned with success, because Devayani regards thee so well.
Mbh.1.80.4472 As Vrihaspati ever seeketh the good of Indra, so do I always seek thine by my ascetic merits'
Mbh.1.100.5600 And so is he the master of all those Sastras that the son of Angiras Vrihaspati adored by the gods and the Asuras, knoweth.
Mbh.1.104.5824 One day Utathya's younger brother Vrihaspati, the priest of the celestials, endued with great energy, approached Mamata.
Mbh.1.104.5826 She continued, O illustrious Vrihaspati, the child that I have conceived hath studied in his mother's womb the Vedas with the six Angas, Semen tuum frustra perdi non potest.
Mbh.1.104.5829 Thus addressed by her, Vrihaspati, though possessed of great wisdom, succeeded not in suppressing his desire.
Mbh.1.104.5836 But Vrihaspati without listening to what that child in the womb said, sought the embraces of Mamata possessing the most beautiful pair of eyes.
Mbh.1.104.5839 And the illustrious Vrihaspati, beholding this, became indignant, and reproached Utathya's child and cursed him, saying, Because thou hast spoken to me in the way thou hast at a time of pleasure that is sought after by all creatures, perpetual darkness shall overtake thee'
Mbh.1.104.5840 And from this curse of the illustrious Vrishaspati Utathya's child who was equal unto Vrihaspati in energy, was born blind and came to be called Dirghatamas enveloped in perpetual darkness.
Mbh.1.141.7539 Sahadeva obtained the whole science of morality and duties from Vrihaspati the spiritual chief of celestials, and continued to live under the control of his brothers.
Mbh.1.172.8770 This fiery weapon that I shall hurl at thee, Vrihaspati the revered preceptor of Indra, gave unto Bharadwaja, from whom it was obtained by Agnivesya, and from Agnivesya by my preceptor, that foremost of Brahmanas, Drona, who gave it away to me'
Mbh.1.175.8966 And, O best of the Pandavas, that regenerate Rishi assisted these monarchs in the performance of their sacrifices like Vrihaspati assisting the immortals.
Mbh.1.222.10817 And there also came Anadhrishti of great prowess, and Uddhava of great renown, of great intelligence, of great soul, and a disciple of Vrihaspati himself.
Mbh.1.223.10891 Many learned Brahmanas with Dhananjaya at their head, each like unto Vrihaspati, waited upon the monarch, like the celestials waiting upon the Lord of the creation.
Mbh.1.230.11283 O god, thou art the consumer, and thou art the creator and thou art Vrihaspati himself in intelligence.
Mbh.2.5.128 He was capable of answering successively Vrihaspati himself while arguing, with definite conclusions properly framed about religion, wealth, pleasure and salvation, of great soul and beholding this whole universe, above, below, and around, as if it were present before his eyes.
Mbh.2.7.329 O son of Pandu; and the rain-charged clouds, and the winds, and all the loud-sounding forces of heaven; the eastern point, the twenty seven fires conveying the sacrificial butter, Agni and Soma, and the fire of Indra, and Mitra, and Savitri, and Aryaman; Bhaga, Viswa the Sadhyas, the preceptor Vrihaspati, and also Sukra; and Vishwavasu and Chitrasena, and Sumanas, and also Taruna; the Sacrifices, the gifts to Brahmanas, the planets, and the stars, O Bharata, and the mantras that are uttered in sacrifices, all these are present there.
Mbh.2.7.332 And Vrihaspati and Sukra are present there on all occasions.
Mbh.2.11.438 The twenty tribes of the Gandharvas and Apsaras, as also their seven other tribes, and all the Lokapalas chief protectors of several regions, and Sukra, and Vrihaspati, and Vudha, and Angaraka Mangala, Sani, Rahu, and the other planets; the Mantras of the Sama Veda, the special Mantras of the same Veda; the rites of Harimat and Vasumat, the Adityas with Indra, the two Agnis mentioned by name viz Agnisoma and Indragni, the Marutas, Viswakarman, and the Vasus, O Bharata; the Pitris, and all kinds of sacrificial libations, the four Vedas.
Mbh.2.24.1083 Indeed, it was upon that car that Indra and Vishnu had fought of old in the battle with the Asuras in which Taraka the wife of Vrihaspati had become the immediate cause of much slaughter.
Mbh.2.26.1171 Indeed, the fight that took place between them and the son of Pritha was equal to that between the gods and the Asuras in which Taraka the wife of Vrihaspati had become the cause of so much slaughter.
Mbh.2.39.1591 SECTION XXXIX Sisupala-badha Parva Vaisampayana said, Beholding that vast assembly of kings agitated with wrath, even like the terrific sea agitated by the winds that blow at the time of the universal dissolution, Yudhishthira addressing the aged Bhishma, that chief of intelligent men and the grandsire of the Kurus, even like Puruhita Indra that slayer of foes, of abundant energy addressing Vrihaspati, said, This vast ocean of kings, hath been agitated by wrath.
Mbh.2.49.2055 Indeed, Vidura knoweth with all its mysteries the science of political morality that the illustrious and learned and wise Vrihaspati, the celestial Rishi who is the spiritual guide of Vasava, had unfolded unto the wise chief of the immortals.
Mbh.2.54.2235 Vrihaspati hath said that the usage of kings are different from those of common people.
Mbh.2.72.3108 Duryodhana said, Hast thou not heard, O king, what the learned Vrihaspati the preceptor of the celestials, said in course of counselling Sakra about mortals and politics?
Mbh.2.72.3109 Even these, O slayer of foes, were the words of Vrihaspati, Those enemies that always do wrong by stratagem or force, should be slain by every means'
Mbh.3.3.196 Ravi, Gabhastimat, Aja, Kala, Mrityu, Dhatri, Prabhakara, Prithibi, Apa, Teja, Kha, Vayu, the sole stay, Soma, Vrihaspati, Sukra, Budha, Angaraka, Indra, Vivaswat, Diptanshu, Suchi, Sauri, Sanaichara, Brahma, Vishnu, Rudra, Skanda, Vaisravana, Yama, Vaidyutagni, Jatharagni, Aindhna, Tejasampati, Dharmadhwaja, Veda-karttri, Vedanga, Vedavahana, Krita, Treta, Dwapara, Kali, full of every impurity, Kala, Kastha, Muhurtta, Kshapa, Yama, and Kshana; Samvatsara-kara, Aswattha, Kalachakra, Bibhavasu, Purusha, Saswata, Yogin, Vyaktavyakta, Sanatana, Kaladhyaksha, Prajadhyaksha, Viswakarma, Tamounda, Varuna, Sagara, Ansu, Jimuta, Jivana, Arihan, Bhutasraya, Bhutapati, Srastri, Samvartaka, Vanhi, Sarvadi, Alolupa, Ananta, Kapila, Bhanu, Kamada, Sarvatomukha, Jaya, Visala, Varada, Manas, Suparna, Bhutadi, Sighraga, Prandharana, Dhanwantari, Dhumaketu, Adideva, Aditisuta, Dwadasatman, Aravindaksha, Pitri, Matri, Pitamaha, Swarga-dwara, Prajadwara, Mokshadwara, Tripistapa, Dehakarti, Prasantatman, Viswatman, Viswatomukha, Characharatman, Sukhsmatman, the merciful Maitreya.
Mbh.3.32.1629 Indeed, these instructions as to duty, uttered by Vrihaspati himself, were first taught to my brothers.
Mbh.3.41.2210 With these, O hero, in the battle that ensued of your on account of Taraka the wife of Vrihaspati, thousands of mighty Daityas were seized and tied.
Mbh.3.87.4773 SECTION LXXXVII Vaisampayana said, Beholding the Pandavas afflicted with anxiety and depressed in spirits, Dhaumya, who resembled Vrihaspati, spake thus, comforting them, O bull of the Bharata race, O sinless one, listen to me as I mention certain sacred asylums and regions and tirthas and mountains that are approved of by Brahmanas.
Mbh.3.149.7645 Without knowing duties and serving the old, even persons like unto Vrihaspati cannot understand profit and religion.
Mbh.3.149.7648 The gods are maintained by the celebration of sacrifices prescribed by the Vedas and the religious ordinances; while men maintain themselves by following the ordinances of Vrihaspati and Usanas and also by these avocations, by which the world is maintained, serving for wages, receiving taxes, merchandise, agriculture and tending kine and sheep.
Mbh.3.184.9188 He is a protector of created beings like Indra, a propounder of morals like Sukra, a counsellor like Vrihaspati and hence he is also called the ruler of men's destinies.
Mbh.3.189.9631 And then when the Sun, the Moon, and Vrihaspati will, with the constellation Pushya, enter the same sign, the Krita age will begin again.
Mbh.3.216.11069 Markandeya continued, Hearing these words of Angiras, the fire-god did as desired, and, O king, Angiras had a son named Vrihaspati.
Mbh.3.217.11075 His son Vrihaspati, O king, was very famous, large-hearted and of great bodily vigour.
Mbh.3.218.11109 The fire, which is known as the internal heat by which the food of all creatures is digested, is the fourth son of Vrihaspati known through all the worlds, O Bharata, by the name of Viswabhuk.
Mbh.3.218.11112 And that terrible water-drinking sea fire called Vadava is the fifth son of Vrihaspati.
Mbh.3.218.11116 This inexorably terrible and highly irascible fire is the daughter of Vrihaspati, and is known as Swaha and is present in all matter.
Mbh.3.228.11492 And Vrihaspati learned in hymns performed the necessary prayers and oblations.
Mbh.3.270.13196 And that Being, arriving at the sacrificial enclosure of Vali, king of the Danavas, entered the sacrificial assembly with the aid of Vrihaspati.
Mbh.3.275.13351 And he was well-versed in holy writ and was equal to Vrihaspati in wisdom.
Mbh.3.283.13888 And beholding Ravana advancing with his army disposed in that array, Rama, following the mode recommended by Vrihaspati, disposed his troops in counter array for opposing that wanderer of the night.
Mbh.3.292.14273 Narada replied, saying, In energy Satyavan is like unto the sun, and in wisdom like unto Vrihaspati!
Mbh.4.58.2217 Of long arms and endued with mighty energy possessed of strength and beauty of person, celebrated over all the worlds for his prowess, resembling Usanas himself in intelligence and Vrihaspati in knowledge of morality, he is conversant with the four Vedas and devoted to the practice of Brahmacharya virtues.
Mbh.5.6.142 You are equal in intellect to either Sukra or Vrihaspati, the son of Angiras.
Mbh.5.11.483 Saddened at hearing this, the goddess said to Vrihaspati, Protect me, O Brahmana, from this Nahusha.
Mbh.5.11.490 Then Vrihaspati said to the queen of Indra who was beside herself through fear, What thou hast been told by me will come to be true, be sure, O goddess.
Mbh.5.11.493 Now Nahusha came to hear that Indra's queen had taken refuge with Vrihaspati, the son of Angiras.
Mbh.5.12.515 Salya continued, Thus having spoken to him, the gods with the saint went to inform Vrihaspati and the queen of Indra of the said news.
Mbh.5.12.521 And she spoke to Vrihaspati, O best of divine saints, I do not desire Nahusha to be my lord.
Mbh.5.12.524 Vrihaspati said, My resolution is this, I shall not abandon one that hath sought my protection.
Mbh.5.12.538 Salya continued, Then the gods and the Gandharvas said these words to the preceptor of the gods, O Vrihaspati, deliberate upon something that may be conformable to sound policy'
Mbh.5.12.539 Vrihaspati said, Let this goddess of auspicious looks ask for time from Nahusha in order to make up her mind to his proposal.
Mbh.5.12.544 Salya continued, Vrihaspati having spoken so, the gods, delighted then said, Well hast thou said, O Brahmana.
Mbh.5.13.564 Dismissed by Nahusha, she of auspicious looks stepped out; and that famous lady went to the abode of Vrihaspati.
Mbh.5.15.668 Meanwhile, dismissed by Nahusha, Sachi went to Vrihaspati and said, But little remaineth of the term assigned by Nahusha to me.
Mbh.5.15.670 The illustrious Vrihaspati then said to her, Very good, thou needst not, O goddess, fear, Nahusha of vicious soul.
Mbh.5.15.676 And Vrihaspati of great power then kindled a fire in the prescribed form, and put the very best offerings upon it in order to ascertain where the king of the gods was.
Mbh.5.15.679 And endued with speed of the mind, he searched everywhere, mountains and forests, earth and sky, and came back to Vrihaspati within the twinkling of the eye.
Mbh.5.15.680 And Agni said, Vrihaspati, nowhere in these places do I find the king of the gods.
Mbh.5.16.692 SECTION XVI Vrihaspati said, Thou art the mouth, O Agni, of all the gods.
Mbh.5.16.708 Thus glorified, the bearer of burnt offerings, that best of poets, well-pleased, spoke laudable words to Vrihaspati.
Mbh.5.16.712 And soon coming back, he informed Vrihaspati how Indra had taken refuge in the fibres of a lotus-stalk, assuming a minute form.
Mbh.5.16.713 Then Vrihaspati, accompanied by the gods, the saints and the Gandharvas, went and glorified the slayer of Vala by referring to his former deeds.
Mbh.5.16.724 And thus glorified, Indra increased little by little; and having assumed his own form, he waxed strong and spoke to the preceptor Vrihaspati standing before.
Mbh.5.16.726 Vrihaspati said, The human Nahusha, a king, having, obtained the throne of heaven by virtue of the power of the divine saints, is giving us exceeding trouble'
Mbh.5.16.729 How great is his power, O Vrihaspati'
Mbh.5.16.730 Vrihaspati said, The gods having been frightened, wished for a king of heaven, for thou hadst given up the high dignity of heaven's ruler.
Mbh.5.18.782 And the illustrious Agni, and the great saint Vrihaspati, and Yama, and Varuna, and Kuvera, the lord of riches, accompanied him.
Mbh.5.29.1225 Vrihaspati, intently and with self-control, led in a proper manner that life of austerities which a Brahmana leads.
Mbh.5.33.1574 On being asked by the chief of the celestials, Vrihaspati, O mighty king declared four things capable of fructifying or occurring within a single day, viz, the resolve of the gods, the comprehensions of intelligent persons, the humility of learned men, and the destruction of the sinful.
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.5.39.2111 Without an acquaintance with the scriptures and without waiting upon the old, neither virtue nor profit can be known or won by persons blessed even with the intelligence of Vrihaspati.
Mbh.5.49.2788 SECTION XLIX Vaisampayana said, In the midst, O Bharata, of all those assembled kings, Bhishma, the son of Santanu, then said these words unto Duryodhana, Once on a time, Vrihaspati and Sakra went to Brahma.
Mbh.5.49.2792 Thereupon, Vrihaspati asked Brahma, saying, Who are these two that leave the place without worshipping thee?
Mbh.5.49.2798 Bhishma continued, Having heard these words, Sakra went to the spot where those two were practising ascetic austerities, accompanied by all the celestials and having Vrihaspati at their head.
Mbh.5.55.3114 Vrihaspati hath said that an army which is less by a third ought to be encountered.
Mbh.5.86.4082 The Vrishnis adore the wisdom of the intelligent Krishna, even as the Adityas, the Vasus, and the Rudras adore the wisdom of Vrihaspati.
Mbh.5.117.5285 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.5.158.6980 SECTION CLVIII Janamejaya said, When Yudhishthira heard that Bhishma, the high-souled son of Ganga, the foremost of all wielders of weapons, the grandsire of the Bharatas, the head of all the kings, the rival of Vrihaspati in intellect, resembling the ocean in gravity, the mountains of Himavat in calmness, the Creator himself in nobleness, and the sun in energy, and capable of slaying hostile hosts like great Indra himself by showering his arrows, was installed, till his removal by death, in the command of the Kuru army on the eve of the great sacrifice of battle, terrific in its mien and capable of making one's hairs stand on their ends, what did that mighty-armed son of Pandu, that foremost of wielders of weapons, say?
Mbh.5.166.7498 In the matter of marching the troops and arraying them, in encounters and withdrawing, I am as well-versed, O great king, as Vrihaspati the preceptor of the celestials, is!
Mbh.6.3.114 Mars wheeleth towards Magha and Vrihaspati Jupiter towards Sravana.
Mbh.6.3.121 The red-bodied Mars possessed of the effulgence of fire, wheeling circuitously, stayeth in a line with the constellation Sravana over-ridden by Vrihaspati.
Mbh.6.3.134 Those two blazing planets, viz, Vrihaspati and Sani, having approached the constellation called Visakha, have become stationary there for a whole year.
Mbh.6.19.901 Sanjaya said, Seeing the Dhritarashtra divisions arrayed in order of battle, Pandu's son of virtuous soul, king Yudhishthira the just, addressed Dhananjaya, saying, Men are informed from the words of that great Rishi Vrihaspati that the few must be made to fight by condensing them, while the many may be extended according to pleasure.
Mbh.6.34.1592 Know me, O son of Pritha, to be Vrihaspati, the chief of household priests.
Mbh.6.50.2640 And then Pritha's son Yudhishthira said unto the commander of his army, the son of Prishata, these words, An array known by the name of Krauncharuma, that is destructive of all foes, and that was spoken of by Vrihaspati unto Indra in days of old when the gods and the Asuras fought, that array destructive of hostile divisions, do thou form.
Mbh.6.108.5897 Listen also to these words of mine that are what Vrihaspati of great intelligence had said unto Sakra in days of old.
Mbh.7.5.178 Who is there worthy of becoming a leader, when the invincible Drona, that foremost of persons conversant with Brahma, is here, that one who is equal to Sukra or Vrihaspati himself?
Mbh.7.9.314 That scorcher of foes who hath given up his life for the wretched Duryodhana, upon whose prowess rested that hope of victory which my wicked sons entertained, who was equal to Vrihaspati or Usanas himself in intelligence, alas, how was he slain?
Mbh.7.10.381 That foremost hero of the Vrishni race, that chief of all bowmen, that brave warrior in whom all accomplishments exist in a greater degree than in Dhananajaya himself, in whom are ever weapons and truth and Brahmacharya, who is equal to Vasudeva in energy and Dhananjaya in strength, who in splendour is equal to Aditya and in intelligence to Vrihaspati, viz, the high-souled Abhimanyu, resembling Death himself with wide-open mouth, O what heroes of my army surrounded him when he rushed towards Drona?
Mbh.7.12.472 Not even persons like Vrihaspati can conceal the expressions of their countenance.
Mbh.7.53.2584 Piqued with Vrihaspati, he had caused Samvatta himself to officiate at his great sacrifices!
Mbh.7.53.2587 Unto him, after the completion of his sacrifices diverse tribes of celestials, those creators of the universe, with Indra himself in their company and with Vrihaspati at their head, used to come.
Mbh.7.67.2902 Vrihaspati became the milker, the Chhandas were the vessel, and the excellent Soma, the calf.
Mbh.7.82.3624 Mounted on that best of cars with those two friends, that slayer of large bodies of foes, viz, Partha, proceeded for achieving the slaughter of the ruler of the Sindhus, like Soma rising in the firmament with Budha and Sukra, for destroying the gloom of night, or like Indra proceeding with Varuna and Surya to the great battle with the Asuras occasioned by the abduction of Taraka the wife of Vrihaspati.
Mbh.7.91.4204 And Angiras imparted those mantras to his son Vrihaspati, having a knowledge of all mantras.
Mbh.7.91.4205 And Vrihaspati imparted that knowledge to Agnivesya of great intelligence.
Mbh.7.100.4644 From the latter it was obtained by Vrihaspati.
Mbh.7.100.4645 And from Vrihaspati it was got by Purandara.
Mbh.7.192.10660 Aswatthaman is equal to Karna in knowledge of weapons, to Purandara in battle, to Kartavirya in energy, and Vrihaspati in wisdom.
Mbh.12.21.906 SECTION XXI Devasthana said, In this connection is cited an old history, viz, the discourse that Vrihaspati, asked by Indra, delivered unto him.
Mbh.12.21.907 Vrihaspati said, Contentment is the highest heaven, contentment is the highest bliss.
Mbh.12.23.976 Vrihaspati, in this connection, sang this verse: Like a snake devouring a mouse, the Earth devours a king that is inclined to peace and a Brahmana that is exceedingly attached to a life of domesticity'
Mbh.12.29.1378 The gods with Indra and Varuna and Vrihaspati at their head came to sacrifice, called Viswasrij, performed by that high-souled monarch
Mbh.12.29.1380 The learned Vrihaspati, from desire of doing good unto Indra, had refused to officiate at Marutta's sacrifice.
Mbh.12.29.1381 Thereupon Samvarta, the younger brother of Vrihaspati, acceded to the king's request.
Mbh.12.35.1856 By performing the sacrifice laid down by Vrihaspati, a Brahmana who drinks alcoholic liquors may succeed in attaining to the region of Brahman.
Mbh.12.37.1978 Having gratified with his dutiful services the celestial Rishis having Vrihaspati at their head, he acquired a knowledge of the duties of kings.
Mbh.12.47.2294 Surrounded by Vyasa conversant with the Vedas by the celestial Rishi Narada, by Devasthana, by Asmaka Sumantu, by Jaimini, by the high-souled Paila, by Sandilya, by Devarata, by Maitreya of great intelligence, by Asita and Vasishtha and the high-souled Kausika, by Harita and Lomasa and Atri's son of great intelligence, by Vrihaspati and Sukra and the great sage Chyavana, by Sanatkumara and Kapila and Valmiki and Tumvuru and Kuru, by Maudgalya and Rama of Bhrigu's race, and the great sage Trinavindu, by Pippalada and Vayu and Samvarta and Pulaha and Katha, by Kasyapa and Pulastya and Kratu and Daksha and Parasara, by Marichi and Angiras and Kasmya and Gautama and the sage Galava, by Dhaumya and Vibhanda and Mandavya and Dhaumra and Krishnanubhautika, by Uluka, that foremost of Brahmanas and the great sage Markandeya, by Bhaskari and Purana and Krishna and Suta, that foremost of virtuous persons, surrounded by these and many other highly-blessed sages of great souls and possessed of faith and self-restraint and tranquillity of mind, the Kuru hero looked like the Moon in the midst of the planets and the stars.
Mbh.12.51.2769 The very master of speech Vrihaspati, in speaking in thy presence, will be overcome by hesitation.
Mbh.12.55.2973 In the scriptures composed by Vrihaspati, a Sloka was in days of old applicable to the present matter.
Mbh.12.57.3077 The divine Vrihaspati does not applaud any other duty so much as this one.
Mbh.12.57.3083 This has been said by Vrihaspati.
Mbh.12.58.3189 Afterwards the puissant Vrihaspati, by his intelligence, further abridged the work into a treatise consisting of three thousand lessons and called it Varhaspatya.
Mbh.12.67.3713 Bhishma said, In this connection, is cited the old story, O Bharata, of the discourse of Vrihaspati unto Vasumanas.
Mbh.12.67.3715 On a certain occasion he questioned the great sage Vrihaspati of much wisdom.
Mbh.12.67.3716 Conversant with the requirements of humility, king Vasumanas, ever devoted to the welfare of all, having observed the proper humilities and having circumambulated the great sage and bowed unto him duly, enquired of the virtuous Vrihaspati about the ordinances in respect of a kingdom, moved by the desire of securing the happiness of men'
Mbh.12.67.3719 Thus questioned by the Kosala king of immeasurable energy, Vrihaspati of great wisdom discoursed unto him coolly about the respect that should be paid to kings.
Mbh.12.67.3720 Vrihaspati said, The duties of all men, O thou of great wisdom, may be seen to have their root in the king.
Mbh.12.67.3782 That best of monarchs, viz, the heroic Vasumanas, ruler of Kosala, thus instructed by Vrihaspati the son of Angiras, began thenceforth to protect his subjects
Mbh.12.68.3810 Vrihaspati has said that a king possessed of intelligence should always avoid war for acquisition of territory.
Mbh.12.68.3873 Touching this matter, Angirasa's son: Vrihaspati himself has sung two verses.
Mbh.12.83.4744 SECTION LXXXIV Bhishma said, In this connection, O Yudhishthira, the old account of a conversation between Vrihaspati and Sakra is cited'
Mbh.12.83.4746 Vrihaspati said, Agreeableness of speech, O Sakra, is the one thing by practising which a person may become an object of regard with all creatures and acquire great celebrity.
Mbh.12.97.5463 That powerful warrior who, having slain the commander of the hostile army, mounts the vehicle of his fallen antagonist, comes to be regarded as possessed of the prowess of Vishnu himself and the intelligence of Vrihaspati, the preceptor of the celestials.
Mbh.12.102.5704 the old narrative of the discourse between Vrihaspati and Indra.
Mbh.12.102.5705 Once on a time, that slayer of hostile heroes, viz, Vasava, the chief of the celestials, joining his palms, approached Vrihaspati, and saluting him, said these words'
Mbh.12.102.5711 Thus addressed, Vrihaspati, skilled in Virtue, Profit, and Pleasure, possessed of a knowledge of kingly duties, and endued with great intelligence, answered Indra in the following words'
Mbh.12.102.5712 Vrihaspati said, One should never wish to subdue one's foes by quarrel.
Mbh.12.102.5781 Vrihaspati said, A wicked person is he who proclaims the faults of others at their back, who is inspired with envy at the accomplishments of others, and who remains silent when the merits of other people are proclaimed in his presence, feeling a reluctance to join in the chorus.
Mbh.12.102.5795 Bhishma continued, Having heard these words of Vrihaspati, Purandara, employed in subduing his foes, acted strictly according to them.
Mbh.12.110.6333 Many amongst the learned, the unlearned, the rapacious, and the deceitful, would falsely accuse an innocent person even if the latter happens to be possessed of the virtues and intelligence of Vrihaspati himself.
Mbh.12.114.6490 It behoveth thee that art equal to Vrihaspati himself in intelligence to discourse to me upon these duties of kings which are difficult to be ascertained and thereby remove my doubts.
Mbh.12.119.6685 A wise man who is possessed of intelligence like Vrihaspati, if he incurs obloquy, goon regains his disposition like heated iron dipped in water.
Mbh.12.121.6864 Mandhatri said, Thou hast, O king, studied all the doctrines of Vrihaspati.
Mbh.12.123.7024 Sukra then, with joined hands, approached Vrihaspati.
Mbh.12.123.7026 Thus addressed, Vrihaspati said unto him that Knowledge leading to emancipation is the source of the highest felicity.
Mbh.12.123.7027 Indeed, Vrihaspati indicated Knowledge to be the source of supreme felicity.
Mbh.12.123.7029 Vrihaspati said, There is something, O son, that is still higher.
Mbh.12.140.8408 The planet Vrihaspati began to move in a retrograde course, and Soma abandoning his own orbit, receded towards the south.
Mbh.12.141.8649 himself has said that this is the opinion of the sage Vrihaspati.
Mbh.12.151.9040 The gods and Asuras, in days of yore, approaching the celestial preceptor Vrihaspati, O king, humbly enquired of him, saying, Thou knowest, O great Rishi, the fruits of virtue, as also the fruits of those other acts that lead to hell in the next world.
Mbh.12.151.9043 Vrihaspati answered, If having committed sin through folly, one does meritorious acts understanding their nature, one succeeds, by such righteousness, in cleansing one's self from sin even as a piece of dirty cloth is washed clean by means of some saline substance.
Mbh.12.169.10163 The sage Vrihaspati hath spoken of four kinds of means for the acquisition of wealth, viz, inheritance, sudden accession due to luck or the favour of the gods, acquisition by labour, and acquisition through the aid or kindness of friends.
Mbh.12.197.11777 Those regions that are owned by the high-souled gods, that are of diverse aspects and colours, of diverse descriptions and productive of diverse fruits, and that are of great excellence, those ears again that: move at the will of the riders, those beautiful mansions and hells, those various pleasure-gardens embellished with golden lotuses, those regions that belong to the four Regents and Sukra and Vrihaspati and the Maruts and Viswedevas and Sadhyas and the Aswins, and the Rudras and the Adityas and the Vasus, and other denizens of heaven, are, O sire, spoken of as hells, when compared with the region of the Supreme Soul.
Mbh.12.200.12146 Bhishma said, In this connection is cited the old narrative of the discourse between that lord of creatures, viz, Manu, and the great Rishi, Vrihaspati.
Mbh.12.200.12147 In days of old, the foremost of celestial Rishis, viz, Vrihaspati, who was a disciple of Manu, bowed to his preceptor and addressing that lord and first of all creatures, said, What is the cause of the universe?
Mbh.12.200.12170 Vrihaspati said, Men's aspirations are concerned with the acquisition of the agreeable which ends in happiness, and the avoidance of the disagreeable which brings misery.
Mbh.12.209.12695 Their branches called the Angas were first acquired by the celestial preceptor Vrihaspati.
Mbh.12.280.17263 There, those regenerate Rishis, headed by Vrihaspati, are praising thee, for thy victory, in celestial hymns
Mbh.12.280.17266 Then Vrihaspati, the son of Angiras, and those foremost of Rishis possessed of great prosperity, beholding the prowess of Vritra, repaired to Mahadeva, and impelled by the desire of benefiting the three worlds, urged him to destroy the great Asura.
Mbh.12.280.17269 Then Vrihaspati of great intelligence and Vasishtha of exceeding energy, and all the other foremost of Rishis, repairing to Him of a hundred sacrifices, viz, the boon-giving Vasava, the adored of all the worlds, addressed him, saying, Slay Vritra, O puissant one, without delay'
Mbh.12.284.17593 In thy body I behold Soma, and Agni, and the lord of the Waters, and Aditya, and Vishnu, and Brahmana, and Vrihaspati.
Mbh.12.321.20479 By walking along the high road constituted by the duties of domesticity, men acquire happy ends by attaining to the region of Prajapati or Vrihaspati or of him of a hundred sacrifices.
Mbh.12.324.20637 For all that, Suka selected Vrihaspati, who was conversant with all the Vedas together with their branches and commentaries, for his preceptor, remembering the universal practice
Mbh.12.335.21500 When Usanas and Vrihaspati will arise, they also will promulgate their respective treatises on morality and religion, guided by and quoting from this your treatise
Mbh.12.335.21501 After the publication of his treatise by the Self-born Manu and of that by Usanas, and after the publication of the treatise also by Vrihaspati, this science composed by you will be acquired by king Vasu otherwise known by the name of Uparichara.
Mbh.12.335.21502 Indeed ye foremost of regenerate ones, that king will acquire this knowledge of this work from Vrihaspati.
Mbh.12.335.21513 Subsequently, when Vrihaspati was born in Angiras's race in the first or the Krita age, those seven Rishis charged him with the task of promulgating their treatise which was consistent with the Upanishads and the several branches of the Vedas.
Mbh.12.336.21515 SECTION CCCXXXVII Bhishma said, Then upon the expiration of the great Kalpa, when the celestial Purohita Vrihaspati was born in the race of Angiras, all the deities became very happy.
Mbh.12.336.21517 The celestial Purohita, O king came to be called Vrihaspati because he was endued with all these attributes.
Mbh.12.336.21518 King Uparichara, otherwise called Vasu, became a disciple of Vrihaspati and soon became the foremost of his disciples.
Mbh.12.336.21521 The illustrious king performed a great Horse-sacrifice in which his preceptor Vrihaspati became the Hota.
Mbh.12.336.21534 At this, Vrihaspati became angry.
Mbh.12.336.21540 Bhishma continued, When Vrihaspati gave way to wrath, the great king Vasu and all his Sadasyas sought to pacify the great Rishi.
Mbh.12.336.21541 With cool heads, all of them addressed Vrihaspati, saying, It behoveth thee not to give way to anger.
Mbh.12.336.21544 He is incapable of being seen either by ourselves or by thee, O Vrihaspati!
Mbh.12.336.21552 Upon the completion of our penances and after we had performed the final ablutions, an incorporeal voice was heard by us, O puissant Vrihaspati, at once deep as that of the clouds and exceedingly sweet and filling the heart with joy.
Mbh.12.336.21582 We then suddenly beheld once more a light arise, that seemed to be the concentrated effulgence of a thousand Suns, O Vrihaspati.
Mbh.12.336.21617 Induced by these words spoken by Ekata and approved by his companions, viz, Dwita and Trita, and solicited also by the other Sadasyas, the high-minded Vrihaspati brought that sacrifice to a completion after duly offering the accustomed adorations to the Deities.
Mbh.12.341.22311 The younger brother Vrihaspati then appeared before that high-souled one's wife.
Mbh.12.341.22314 Hearing these words of the unborn child, Vrihaspati, became filled with wrath and denounced a curse on him, saying, Since thou obstructest me in this way when I have come hither from desire of the pleasures of congress, therefore shalt thou, by my curse, be visited by blindness, without doubt!
Mbh.12.342.22408 On the occasion of churning the Ocean for raising the amrita, Vrihaspati of Angiras race sat on the shores of the Ocean for performing the rite of Puruscharana.
Mbh.12.342.22410 At this Vrihaspati became angry and cursed the Ocean, saying, Since thou continuest to be so dirty regardless of the fact of my having come to thee for touching thee, since thou hast not become clear and transparent, therefore from this day thou shalt be tainted with fishes and sharks and tortoises and other aquatic animals.
Mbh.12.342.22489 Meanwhile Sachi, afflicted with pain and grief, anxious to find her lord and assailed by her fear of Nahusha proceeded to Vrihaspati the chief priest of the celestials.
Mbh.12.342.22490 At the first sight Vrihaspati understood her to be struck with anxiety.
Mbh.12.342.22492 Vrihaspati then addressed her, saying, Equipt with penances and the merit that will be thine in consequence of this vow that thou art observing, do thou invoke the boon-giving goddess Upasruti.
Mbh.12.342.22531 Indra, rising from the lake, came to Vrihaspati.
Mbh.12.342.22532 The celestial priest Vrihaspati then made arrangements for a great Horse-sacrifice, substituting a black antelope for a good steed every way fit to be offered up in sacrifice.
Mbh.12.342.22533 Causing Indra, the lord of the Maruts, to ride upon that very steed which was saved from slaughter Vrihaspati led him to his own place.
Mbh.13.14.1513 Sanatkumara, the Vedas, the Histories, Marichi, Angiras, Atri, Pulastya, Pulaha, Kratu, the seven Manus, Soma, the Atharvans, and Vrihaspati, Bhrigu, Daksha, Kasyapa, Vasishtha, Kasya, the Schandas, Diksha, the Sacrifices, Dakshina, the Sacrificial Fires, the Havis clarified butter poured in sacrifices, and all the requisites of the sacrifices, were beheld by me, O Yudhishthira, standing there in their embodied forms.
Mbh.13.17.1810 Thou art Chandramas, thou art Surya, thou art the planet Saturn, thou art the descending node of the moon, thou art the ascending node, thou art Mangala Mars, and thou art Vrihaspati Jupiter and Sukra Venus, thou art Vudha Mercury thou art the worshipper of Atri's wife, thou art he who shot his shaft in wrath at Sacrifice when Sacrifice fled away from him in the form of a deer.
Mbh.13.17.2094 Thou art he that has taken birth after Vrihaspati
Mbh.13.17.2659 Thou art the preceptor of both the deities and the Asuras being as thou art of the form of both Vrihaspati and Sukra.
Mbh.13.18.2800 The illustrious Rishi Gritsamada, the dear friend of Sakra, who resembled the celestial preceptor Vrihaspati himself in splendour, addressing Yudhishthira of Ajamidha's race said, The inconceivable Sakra had, in days of yore, performed a sacrifice extending over a thousand years.
Mbh.13.18.2881 Vishnu said, O Great King, Aditya, Chandra, Wind, Fire, Heaven, Earth, the Vasus, the Viswedevas, Dhatri, Aryyaman, Sukra, Vrihaspati, the Rudras, the Saddhyas, Varuna, Brahma, Sakra, Maruts, the Upanishads that deal with knowledge of Brahman, Truth, the Vedas, the Sacrifices, Sacrificial Presents, Brahmanas reciting the Vedas, Soma, Sacrificer, the shares of the deities in sacrificial offerings or clarified butter poured in sacrifices, Raksha, Diksha, all kinds of restraints in the form of vows and fasts and rigid observances, Swaha, Vashat, the Brahmanas, the celestial cow, the foremost acts of righteousness, the wheel of Time, Strength, Fame, Self-restraint, the Steadiness of all persons endued with intelligence, all acts of goodness and the reverse, the seven Rishis, Understanding of the foremost order, all kinds of excellent touch, the success of all religious acts, the diverse tribes of the deities, those beings that drink heat, those that are drinkers of Soma, Clouds, Suyamas, Rishitas, all creatures having Mantras for their bodies, Abhasuras, those beings that live upon scents only, those that live upon vision only, those that restrain their speech, those that restrain their minds, those that are pure, those that are capable of assuming diverse forms through Yoga-puissance, those deities that live on touch as their food, those deities that subsist on vision and those that subsist upon the butter poured in sacrifices, those beings that are competent to create by fiats of their will the objects they require, they that are regarded as the foremost ones among the deities, and all the other deities, O descendant of Ajamila, the Suparnas, the Gandharvas, the Pisachas, the Danavas, Yakshas, the Charanas, the snakes, all that is gross and all that is exceedingly subtile, all that is soft and all that is not subtile, all sorrows and all joys, all sorrows that come after joy and all joy that comes after sorrow, the Sankhya philosophy, Yoga, and that which transcends objects which are regarded as foremost and very superior, all adorable things, all the deities, and all the protectors of the universe who entering into the physical forces sustain and uphold this ancient creation of that illustrious Deity, have sprung from that Creator of all creatures.
Mbh.13.26.3505 SECTION XXVI Vaisampayana said, Equal unto Vrihaspati in intelligence and Brahma himself in forgiveness, resembling Sakra in prowess and Surya in energy, Bhishma the son of Ganga, of infinite might, had been overthrown in battle by Arjuna.
Mbh.13.26.3511 There were also Vrihaspati and Usanas, and Vyasa and Chyavana and Kasyapa and Dhruva, and Durvasas and Jamadagni and Markandeya and Galava, and Bharadwaja and Raibhya and Yavakrita and Trita.
Mbh.13.30.3838 Beholding King Divodasa before him, the eldest son of Vrihaspati, viz, Bharadwaja of excellent conduct, who was the monarch's priest, said unto him, What is the reason of thy coming here?
Mbh.13.39.4315 That science of policy which the preceptor of the Asuras knew, that science of policy which the preceptor of the celestials, Vrihaspati, knew, cannot be regarded to be deeper or more distinguished for subtility than what woman's intelligence naturally brings forth.
Mbh.13.39.4319 It seems to me that Vrihaspati and other great thinkers, O slayer of foes, evolved the science of policy from observation of the understandings of women.
Mbh.13.56.5621 Known by the name of Viswamitra, he will in energy come to be regarded as the equal of Vrihaspati himself, the preceptor of the celestials.
Mbh.13.62.6041 In this connection is cited the old narrative of a discourse between the celestial preceptor Vrihaspati and Indra the ruler of Heaven, O Yudhishthira.
Mbh.13.62.6042 Having adored Vishnu in a hundred sacrifices each of which was distinguished by plentiful gifts as Dakshina, Maghavat put this question to Vrihaspati, that foremost of all eloquent persons'
Mbh.13.62.6045 Bhishma continued, Thus addressed by the chief of the celestials the preceptor of the deities, viz, Vrihaspati of great energy, said these words in reply unto him of a hundred sacrifices.
Mbh.13.65.6232 Ghee is said to gratify the illustrious Vrihaspati, Pushan, Bhaga, the twin Aswins, and the deity of fire.
Mbh.13.76.6922 In days of yore when a number of kine intended to be given away was brought before him, king Mandhatri, filled with doubt in respect of the ritual he should observe in actually giving them away, properly questioned Vrihaspati the preceptor of the celestials for an explanation of that doubt.
Mbh.13.76.6923 Vrihaspati said, Duly observing restraints the while, the giver of kine should, on the previous day, properly honour the Brahmanas and appoint the actual time of gift.
Mbh.13.76.6984 Listen to me, O king, as I recite to thee the names of those righteous monarchs that have attained to regions of great felicity as the reward of those gifts of kine which they made agreeable to the instructions of Vrihaspati, Usinara, Viswagaswa, Nriga, Bhagiratha, the celebrated Mandhatri the son of Yuvanaswa, king Muchukunda, Bhagiratha, Naishadha.
Mbh.13.76.6987 Therefore, O son of Pritha, do thou also bear in mind those instructions of Vrihaspati which I have recited unto thee in respect of gifts of kine.
Mbh.13.85.7845 Their names are Vrihaspati, Utathya, Payasya, Santi, Dhira, Virupa, Samvarta, and Sudhan was the eighth.
Mbh.13.111.9934 Bhishma said, Yonder comes the illustrious Vrihaspati of great intelligence!
Mbh.13.111.9938 There is no speaker like Vrihaspati'
Mbh.13.111.9939 Vaisampayana said, While the son of Pritha and the son of Ganga were thus speaking with each other, there came to that spot from the firmament the illustrious Vrihaspati of cleansed soul.
Mbh.13.111.9940 King Yudhishthira, and all others, with Dhritarashtra at their head, stood up and received Vrihaspati with proper honours.
Mbh.13.111.9942 Then Dharma's royal son, Yudhishthira, approaching the illustrious Vrihaspati, asked him the question in proper form, desirous of knowing the truth'
Mbh.13.111.9948 Vrihaspati said, One is born alone, O king, and one dies alone; one crosses alone the difficulties one meets with, and one alone encounters whatever misery falls to one's lot.
Mbh.13.111.9965 Vrihaspati said, Earth, Wind, Ether, Water, Light, Mind, Yama the king of the dead, Understanding, the Soul, as also Day and Night, all together behold as witnesses the merits and demerits of all living creatures.
Mbh.13.111.9975 Vrihaspati said, The food that these deities, O king, who dwell in the body, viz, Earth, Wind, Ether, Water, Light, and Mind eat, gratifies them.
Mbh.13.111.9982 Vrihaspati said, As soon as Jiva enters the vital seed, he becomes overwhelmed by the elements already mentioned.
Mbh.13.111.9988 Vrihaspati said, Endued with all his acts, the Jiva quickly enters the vital seed, and utilizing the functional flow of women, takes birth in time, O Bharata.
Mbh.13.112.10155 Vrihaspati said, By committing sinful acts with perverted mind, one yields to the sway of unrighteousness and as a consequence goeth to hell.
Mbh.13.113.10196 Vrihaspati said, All these six are fraught with merit.
Mbh.13.115.10270 Vrihaspati has said that that man who abstains from honey and meat acquires the merit of gifts and sacrifices and penances.
Mbh.13.125.10914 I heard it from Vrihaspati while he recited it in the presence of Mahadeva.
Mbh.13.125.10921 After this, the chief of the deities, viz, he of a hundred sacrifices, seated in the midst of the gods, then sweetly addressed Vrihaspati, saying these excellent words, O holy one, do thou duly discourse on what those mysteries of religion are that are fraught with happiness to human beings, and what the faults are which they commit, together with the mysteries that attach to them'
Mbh.13.125.10922 Vrihaspati said, They who pass urine, facing the sun, they who do not show reverence for the wind, they who do not pour libations on the blazing fire, they who milk a cow whose calf is very young, moved by the desire of obtaining from her as much milk as possible, commit sins.
Mbh.13.150.12695 The sages of olden times, viz, Kasyapa, Gotama, and others, and Bhrigu Angiras and Atri and others, and Sukra, Agastya, and Vrihaspati, and others, all of whom are regenerate Rishis, have adored these Mantras.
Mbh.13.165.13692 Then comes the three-eyed Lord of Lima; then Skanda the generalissimo of the celestial forces; then Visakha; then Agni the eater of sacrificial libations; then Vayu the god of wind; then Chandramas; then Aditya the god of the sun, endued with effulgence; then the illustrious Sakra the lord of Sachi; and Yama with his spouse Dhumorna; and Varuna with Gauri; Kuvera the lord of treasures, with his spouse Riddhi; the amiable and illustrious cow Surabhi; the great Rishi Visravas; Sankalpa, Ocean, Gangs: the other sacred Rivers; the diverse Maruts; the Valkhilyas crowned with success of penances; the island-born Krishna; Narada; Parvata; Viswavasu; the Hahas; the Huhus; Tumvuru; Chitrasena; the celestial messenger of wide celebrity; the highly blessed celestial maidens; the celestial Apsaras, Urvasi, Menaka, Rambha; Misrakesi, Alamvusha, Viswachi, Ghritachi, Panchachuda, Tilottama, the Adityas, the Vasus, the Aswins, the Pitris; Dharma Righteousness; Vedic lore, Penances, Diksha, Perseverance in religious acts, the Grandsire, Day and Night, Kasyapa the son of Marichi, Sukra, Vrihaspati, Mangala the son of Earth, Vudha, Rahu, Sanischara, the Constellations, the Seasons, the Months, the Fortnights, the Year, Garuda, the son of Vinata, the several Oceans, the sons of Kadru, viz, the Snakes, Satadru, Vipasa, Chandrabhaga, Saraswati, Sindhu, Devika, Prabhasa, the lakes of Pushkara, Ganga, Mahanadi, Vena, Kaveri, Narmada, Kulampuna Visalya, Karatoya, Amvuvahini.
Mbh.14.4.110 And in energy he resembled the sun and in forbearance Earth herself; in intelligence, he was like Vrihaspati, and in calmness the mountain Himavat himself.
Mbh.14.5.125 Vyasa thereupon said, As the numerous offspring of the Prajapati Daksha, the Asuras and the Celestials challenged each other to encounter, so in the same way Angira's sons, the exceedingly energetic Vrihaspati and the ascetic, Samvarta, of equal vows, challenged each other, O king.
Mbh.14.5.126 Vrihaspati began to worry Samvarta again and again.
Mbh.14.5.128 At that time, Vasava having vanquished and destroyed the Asuras, and obtained the sovereignty of the celestial regions had appointed as his priest Angira's eldest son, that best of Brahmanas, Vrihaspati.
Mbh.14.5.140 And incapable of controlling him, he riding on the horse, along with the celestials summoning Vrihaspati, spoke to him thus, O Vrihaspati, if thou wishest to do what is agreeable to me, do not perform priestly offices for Marutta on behalf of the deities or the ancestral Manes.
Mbh.14.5.141 I have, O Vrihaspati, obtained the sovereignty of the three worlds, while Marutta is merely the lord of the Earth.
Mbh.14.5.145 Thus accosted by the sovereign of the celestials, Vrihaspati, reflecting for a moment, replied unto the king of the immortals.
Mbh.14.5.151 Vaisampayana continued, On hearing this speech from Vrihaspati Indra became cured of his envious feelings, and then praising him he repaired to his own mansion'
Mbh.14.6.152 SECTION VI Vyasa said, The ancient legend of Vrihaspati and the wise Marutta is cited in this connection.
Mbh.14.6.153 On hearing of the compact made by Angira's son Vrihaspati with the lord of the gods Indra, king Marutta made the necessary preparations for a great sacrifice.
Mbh.14.6.154 The eloquent grandson of Karandhama, Marutta having conceived the idea of a sacrifice in his mind, went to Vrihaspati and addressed him thus, O worshipful ascetic, I have intended to perform the sacrifice which thou didst propose to me once on a previous occasion and in accordance with thy instructions, and I now desire to appoint thee as officiating priest in this sacrifice, the materials whereof have also been collected by me,
Mbh.14.6.156 Vrihaspati said, O lord of the earth, I do not desire to perform thy sacrifice.
Mbh.14.6.159 Vrihaspati said, Having, O Marutta, acted as priest to the Immortals, how can I act as such to mortal men, and whether thou dost depart hence or stay, I tell thee, I have ceased to act as priest to any but the Immortals.
Mbh.14.6.168 Marutta said, Seeking for a priest to officiate at my sacrifice, I went to that priest of the Immortals, Vrihaspati, the son of Angira, but he did not choose to accept my offer.
Mbh.14.6.172 If Vrihaspati does not desire to officiate at thy sacrifice, the powerful Samvarta, if pleased with thee, will perform thy sacrifice'
Mbh.14.7.198 Thou must therefore go to Vrihaspati first, and taking his permission thou canst come back to me, if thou hast any desire to perform a sacrifice, and then only shall I officiate at thy sacrifice'
Mbh.14.7.199 Marutta said, Do thou listen to me, O Samvarta, I did go to Vrihaspati first, but desiring the patronage of Vasava, he did not wish to have me as his sacrificer.
Mbh.14.7.204 As I have been repulsed by Vrihaspati for no fault of mine, I have now no desire, O Brahmana, to go to him to seek his aid in this sacrifice
Mbh.14.7.205 Samvarta said, I can certainly, O king, accomplish all that thou desirest, if only thou agree to do all that I shall ask thee to do, but I apprehend that Vrihaspati and Purandara Indra when they will learn that I am engaged in performing thy sacrifice, will be filled with wrath, and do all they can to injure thee.
Mbh.14.8.227 And Vrihaspati too, hearing of the prosperity of Marutta, eclipsing that of the gods, became greatly grieved at heart, and distressed at the thought that his rival Samvarta should become prosperous, became sick at heart, and the glow of his complexion left him, and his frame became emaciated.
Mbh.14.8.228 And when the lord of the gods came to know that Vrihaspati was much aggrieved, he went to him attended by the Immortals and addressed him thus
Mbh.14.9.229 SECTION IX Indra said, Dost thou, O Vrihaspati, sleep in peace, and are thy servants agreeable to thee, dost thou seek the welfare of the gods, and do the gods, O Brahmana, protect thee
Mbh.14.9.230 Vrihaspati said, I do sleep in peace in my bed.
Mbh.14.9.234 Vrihaspati said, O Indra, I have heard that Marutta will perform a great sacrifice at which exquisite presents will be given by him to Brahmanas and that at his sacrifice Samvarta will act as the officiating priest, and therefore do I desire that he may not officiate as priest at that sacrifice
Mbh.14.9.236 Vrihaspati said, Prosperity of a rival is always painful to one's feelings, and for this reason too, thou dost with try attendant gods persecute the Asuras with their with and kin, and kill the most prosperous among them; hence, O Lord of the gods, am I changed in appearance at the thought that my rival is prospering, therefore, O Indra, do thou, by all means, restrain Samvarta and king Marutta
Mbh.14.9.237 Indra turning to Agni said, Do thou, O Jataveda, following my direction, go to king Marutta to present Vrihaspati to him, and say unto him that this Vrihaspati will officiate at his sacrifice and make him immortal
Mbh.14.9.238 Agni said, I shall presently, O adorable one, repair thither as thy messenger, to present Vrihaspati to king Marutta; and to make Indra's words true, and to show respect to Vrihaspati, Agni departed
Mbh.14.9.247 And the object for which he has sent me to thee is to present Vrihaspati to Marutta.
Mbh.14.9.249 Marutta said, This twice-born Brahmana Samvarta will perform my sacrifice, and I pray to Vrihaspati, that he having acted as priest to Mahendra Indra, it does not look well for him now to act as priest to mortal men
Mbh.14.9.250 Agni said, If this Vrihaspati officiate as thy priest, then shalt thou by the blessings of Devaraja Indra attain the highest region in the celestial mansion and attaining fame shalt thou certainly conquer the heavenly region.
Mbh.14.9.251 And, O lord of men, if Vrihaspati act as thy priest, thou shalt be able to conquer all the regions inhabited by men, and the heavenly regions, and all the highest regions created by Prajapati and even the entire kingdom of the gods
Mbh.14.9.252 Samvarta said, Thou must never come again thus to present Vrihaspati to Marutta: for know, O Pavaka, Agni if thou dost, I losing my temper, will burn thee with my fierce evil eyes
Mbh.14.9.253 Vyasa said, Then Agni apprehending destruction by fire, and trembling like the leaves of the Aswattha tree Ficus religiosa, returned to the gods, and the high-souled Sakra seeing that carrier of oblations Agni in the company of Vrihaspati said as follows: Indra said, O Jataveda Agni, didst thou go to present Vrihaspati to Marutta according to my direction?
Mbh.14.9.255 Agni said, Thy message was not acceptable by Marutta and when urged by me, he clasping the hands of Vrihaspati, repeatedly said, that Samvarta would act as his priest.
Mbh.14.9.260 I shall burn thee with my fierce evil eyes if thou on any account come again here to present Vrihaspati to king Marutta
Mbh.14.10.279 Therefore, O Dhritarashtra, do thou according to my direction repair to king Marutta attended by Samvarta, and deliver this message to him, Do thou, O prince, accept Vrihaspati as thy spiritual preceptor, as otherwise, I shall strike thee with my terrific thunderbolt
Mbh.14.10.282 Do thou, O lion among kings, listen to the words which the high-souled lord of all the worlds meant for thee, That one of incomprehensible achievements Indra only said this much, Do thou accept Vrihaspati as thy officiating priest for the sacrifice, or if thou do not comply with my request, I shall strike thee with my terrific thunderbolt
Mbh.14.10.284 Let Vrihaspati therefore officiate as priest to that Mahendra the supreme Deva god, the highest one wielding the thunderbolt, and O prince, Samvarta will act as my priest, as neither his Indra's words, nor thine commend themselves to me
Mbh.14.10.309 O Surendra, this excellent Brahmana, the younger brother of Vrihaspati is engaged in performing my sacrifices
Mbh.14.10.311 I know thy priest, this highly energetic ascetic, the younger brother of Vrihaspati, at whose invitation I have come to this sacrifice.
Mbh.14.35.1389 In days of old, the Rishis Vrihaspati and Bharadwaja, and Gautama and Bhargava, and Vasishtha and Kasyapa, and Viswamitra, and Atri, assembled together for the purpose of asking one another.
Mbh.14.43.1727 Agni is the eternal lord of the elements, and Vrihaspati of the Brahmanas.
Mbh.14.92.4352 Placing Vrihaspati before him, the chief of the deities came there, O royal sage, and gratified the Rishi Agastya.
Mbh.15.27.1079 Indeed, he blazed with a Vedic splendour like Vrihaspati in the midst of the celestials.
Mbh.15.28.1110 Even Vrihaspati among the celestials, and Sukra among the Asuras, was not possessed of such intelligence as that foremost of persons.
Mbh.15.31.1279 Know that Drona was a portion of Vrihaspati, and that Drona's son is born of a portion of Rudra.
