Mbh.2.43.1732 Passing over Bhishmaka of abundant energy, and king Dantavakra, and Bhagadatta known for his innumerable sacrificial stakes, and Jayatsena the king of the Magadha, and Virata and Drupada, and Sakuni and Vrihadvala, and Vinda and Anuvinda of Avant Pandya, Sweta Uttama Sankhya of great prosperity, the proud Vrishasena, the powerful Ekalavya, and the great charioteer Kalinga of abundant energy, why dost thou praise Kesava?
Mbh.5.165.7486 And he urged Subhadra's son Abhimanyu against Vrishasena the son of Karna, and also against all the rest of the kings, for he regarded Abhimanyu as superior to Arjuna himself in battle.
Mbh.5.168.7602 Vrishasena, the son of Karna, is one of thy foremost of car-warriors and is a Maharatha.
Mbh.7.16.702 SECTION XVI Sanjaya said, Beholding that army of thine exceedingly broken, the valiant Vrishasena, single-handed, began to protect it, O king, displaying the illusion of his weapons.
Mbh.7.16.703 Shot by Vrishasena in that battle, thousands of arrows coursed in all directions, piercing through men and steeds and cars and elephants.
Mbh.7.16.706 The mighty car-warrior Vrishasena, O king, felled large bodies of steeds, of cars and of elephants, in that battle, by thousands.
Mbh.7.16.708 Nakula's son, Satanika, rushed at Vrishasena and pierced him with ten arrows capable of penetrating into the vitals.
Mbh.7.23.1229 Vrishasena the son of Karna, competent for the feat, resisted with showers of arrows king Pandava who was rushing to battle like Indra himself following the Asuras for smiting them.
Mbh.7.35.1813 And Drona, and Drona's son, and Kripa and Karna and Kritavarman and Suvala's son, Vrihadvala, and the ruler of the Madras, and Bhuri, and Bhurisravas, and Sala, and Paurava and Vrishasena, shooting sharp shafts, checked Subhadra's son by means of those arrowy showers.
Mbh.7.35.1837 Then Karna and Kripa, and Drona and Drona's son, and the ruler of the Gandharas, and Sala and Salya, and Bhurisravas and Kratha, and Somadatta, and Vivinsati, and Vrishasena, and Sushena, and Kundavedhin, and Pratardana, and Vrindaraka and Lalithya, and Pravahu, and Drighalochana, and angry Duryodhana, showered their arrows upon him.
Mbh.7.42.2038 The son, of Arjuna, encompassed on all sides by those enemies with crowds of cars, slew the charioteer of Vrishasena and also cut off his bow.
Mbh.7.42.2039 And the mighty Abhimanyu then pierced Vrishasena's steeds with his straight shafts, upon which those coursers, with the speed of the wind, bore Vrishasena away from the battle.
Mbh.7.72.3156 Myself, Vikartana's son, Karna, Chitrasena, Vivinsati, Bhurisravas, Sala, Salya, the invincible Vrishasena, Purumitra, Jaya, Bhoja, Sudakshina the ruler of the Kamvojas, Satyavrata, the mighty-armed, Vikarna, Durmukha, Dussasana, Subahu, the ruler of the Kalingas, with his weapons upraised, Vinda and Anuvinda of Avanti, Drona, Drona's son, and Suvala's son Sakuni, these and numerous other kings will, with their forces, face the battle surrounding thee on all sides!
Mbh.7.73.3220 Karna and Bhurisravas, and Drona's son, and the invincible Vrishasena, and Kripa, and the ruler of the Madras, these six will be in Jayadratha's van.
Mbh.7.85.3760 Thyself, Somadatta's son, the mighty car-warrior Karna, Aswatthaman, Salya, Vrishasena and Kripa, with a hundred thousand horse, sixty thousand cars, four and ten thousand elephants with rent temples, one and twenty thousand foot-soldiers clad in mail take up your station behind me at the distance of twelve miles.
Mbh.7.92.4267 And for protecting his rear he had a number of warriors headed by Somadatta's son, viz, Kripa, and Vrishasena, and Sala, and the invincible Salya, who were conversant with policy and were mighty bowmen accomplished in battle.
Mbh.7.101.4687 Bhurisravas, and Sala and Karna, and Vrishasena, and Jayadratha, and Kripa.
Mbh.7.101.4706 Then piercing Karna with ten arrows and Vrishasena with three, the valiant Dhananjaya cut off Salya's bow with arrows fixed on the string, at the handle.
Mbh.7.101.4709 And Karna pierced him with two and thirty arrows, and Vrishasena with seven.
Mbh.7.101.4715 Piercing Karna with a dozen shafts and Vrishasena with three, Partha cut off Salya's bow at the handle.
Mbh.7.102.4736 Vrishasena has a peacock made of gold and adorned with jewels and gems.
Mbh.7.102.4738 With that peacock, the car of the high-souled Vrishasena shone, like the car, O king, of Skanda the celestial generalissimo shining with his peacock unrivalled and beautiful ploughshare made of gold and looking like flame of fire.
Mbh.7.126.6314 The mighty car-warrior Karna then speedily jumping down, O king, from his steedless car, mounted the car of Vrishasena.
Mbh.7.140.7092 But deprived of reason, and forbidden by Krishna and the high-souled Partha, Bhima, and the two protectors of the two wheels of Arjuna's car, viz, Yudhamanyu and Uttamaujas, and Aswatthaman, and Kripa and Karna, and Vrishasena, and the ruler of the Sindhus also, and while the soldiers were yet uttering shouts of disapproval, Satyaki stew Bhurisravas while in the observance of his vow.
Mbh.7.142.7176 Then, O king, many leaders of the Kuru army, such as Duryodhana and Karna and Vrishasena and the ruler of the Sindhus himself, rushed with speed, O king, against Arjuna whose shafts were never baffled and who was proceeding, on his car drawn by steeds of great fleetness.
Mbh.7.142.7218 Then Duryodhana and Karna and Vrishasena and the ruler of the Madras, and Aswatthaman and Kripa and the ruler of the Sindhus himself, excited with wrath and fighting for the sake of the Sindhu king, encompassed the diadem-decked Arjuna on all sides.
Mbh.7.142.7229 Then, Drona's son pierced him with five and twenty arrows, and Vrishasena with seven, and Duryodhana pierced him with twenty, and Karma and Salya each with three.
Mbh.7.142.7269 And the ruler of the Sindhus pierced each with four arrows, and Vrishasena also pierced each of them, O king, with seven arrows.
Mbh.7.142.7271 Indeed, piercing Drona's son with four and sixty shafts, and the ruler of the Madras with a hundred, and the Sindhu king with ten broad-headed arrows, and Vrishasena with three arrows and Saradwata's son with twenty, Partha uttered a loud shout.
Mbh.7.143.7339 with fifty shafts and Vrishasena with three.
Mbh.7.143.7369 And he pierced Vrishasena with eight arrows and the ruler of the Sindhus himself with sixty.
Mbh.7.143.7390 And others concealed themselves behind and under the bodies of slain elephants Routing thy host thus, O king, Dhananjaya began to strike with terrible shafts the protectors of the ruler of the Sindhus with his arrowy showers, Karna and Drona's son and Kripa and Salya and Vrishasena and Duryodhana.
Mbh.7.144.7523 Then Vrishasena, the son of Karna, and Salya, the ruler of the Madras, and Drona's son, encompassed the grandson of Sini from all sides.
Mbh.7.145.7587 I will slay Vrishasena in thy very sight in battle.
Mbh.7.153.8011 Sala also, and Vrishasena, have been crushed by me.
Mbh.7.153.8146 Karna also, and Vrishasena and Kripa, and Nila, and the Northerners, and Kritavarman, and the sons of Purumitra, and Duhsasana, and Nikumbha, and Kundabhedin, and Puranjaya and Dridharatha, and Hemakampana, and Salya, and Aruni, and Indrasena, and Sanjaya, and Vijaya, and Jaya, and Purakrathin, and Jayavarman, and Sudarsana, these will follow thee, with sixty thousand foot-soldiers.
Mbh.7.155.8362 Duryodhana, and Drona, and Sakuni, and Durmukha, and Jaya, and Duhsasana, and Vrishasena, and the ruler of the Madras, and thyself too and Somadatta and Drona's son, and Vivinsati, all these heroes skilled in battle, are here, clad in mail.
Mbh.7.162.8769 Vrishasena.
Mbh.7.166.8940 Vrishasena, O king, rushed with great speed, scattering shafts in hundreds, against the mighty car-warrior Drupada, advancing at the head of his troops against Drona
Mbh.7.166.8942 Vrishasena, then, excited with rage, quickly pierced Yajnasena, standing on his car, with many shafts in the centre of the chest.
Mbh.7.166.8946 Then Vrishasena, O king, having pierced Drupada with nine arrows, once more pierced him with seventy, and then again with three other arrows.
Mbh.7.166.8957 Thus afflicted in battle by Vrishasena, the Panchalas and the Somakas, O monarch, illumined by lamps, looked exceedingly beautiful
Mbh.7.166.8959 Amongst all those thousands of kings of thy side and their the valiant Vrishasena then seemed to be the only resplendent luminary.
Mbh.7.168.9075 Resisting with his own weapons those of them all and of Karna also, O lord, Satyaki quickly pierced Vrishasena in the centre of the chest.
Mbh.7.168.9076 Pierced with that arrow, the valiant Vrishasena, of great splendour, quickly fell down on his car, casting aside his bow.
Mbh.7.168.9077 Then Karna, believing that mighty car-warrior, viz, Vrishasena, slain, became scorched with grief on account of the death of his son and began to afflict Satyaki with great force.
Mbh.7.168.9079 Once more piercing Karna with ten arrows, and Vrishasena with five, the Satwata hero cut off the leathern fences and the bows of both sire and son.
Mbh.7.170.9175 And Karna pierced him with ten arrows, and thy son with seven, and Vrishasena pierced him with ten, and Suvala's son with seven.
Mbh.7.191.10593 Taking with him ten thousand cars and three thousand elephants, Vrishasena also fled with speed at the sight of Drona's fall.
Mbh.7.198.11120 And Duhsasana pierced him with a hundred arrows, and Vrishasena with seven.
Mbh.8.5.124 He who was equal to Karna himself in battle, Karna's son Vrishasena, accomplished in arms, of mighty energy and steady prowess, hath, in the very sight of Karna, been despatched to Yama's abode by Dhananjaya who put forth his prowess remembering the slaughter of his own son Abhimanyu and bearing in mind the vow he had made.
Mbh.8.9.325 Seeing Durmarshana slain in battle and Vrishasena also, and seeing his host break when slaughtered by mighty car-warriors, beholding also the kings of his army turn back their faces, intent on flight, and his car-warriors already fled, I think that son of mine is now indulging in lamentations!
Mbh.8.48.2649 The eldest son of Karna, viz, the mighty car-warrior Vrishasena, himself protected his father's rear.
Mbh.8.48.2674 Satyaki, slaying the driver of Vrishasena with three arrows, cut off the latter's bow with a broad-headed shaft and struck his steeds with seven arrows.
Mbh.8.48.2675 Crushing his standard then with another arrow, he struck Vrishasena himself with three arrows in the chest.
Mbh.8.48.2676 Thus struck, Vrishasena became senseless on his car, but within the twinkling of an eye, stood up again.
Mbh.8.48.2677 Deprived of his driver and steeds and car standard by Yuyudhana Satyaki, Vrishasena then, armed with sword and shield, rushed against Yuyudhana from desire of slaying him.
Mbh.8.48.2679 Then Duhshasana, beholding Vrishasena made carless and weaponless, quickly caused him to ascend his own car, and bearing him away from the spot, caused him to ride another vehicle.
Mbh.8.48.2680 The mighty car-warrior Vrishasena then, riding on another vehicle, pierced the five sons of Draupadi with seventy and Yuyudhana with five, and Bhimasena with four and sixty, and Sahadeva with five, and Nakula with thirty, and Satanika with seven arrows, and Shikhandi with ten, and king Yudhishthira with a hundred.
Mbh.8.48.2682 Then, in that battle, the invincible Vrishasena continued to protect the rear of Karna.
Mbh.8.61.3557 Nakula proceeded against Vrishasena, while Yudhishthira against Citrasena.
Mbh.8.61.3583 Vrishasena, staying by the side of his father, having pierced Nakula with five arrows made wholly of iron, pierced him once again with three other arrows.
Mbh.8.61.3584 The heroic Nakula then, as if smiling, deeply pierced Vrishasena in the chest with a cloth-yard shaft of great keenness.
Mbh.8.61.3585 Thus pierced by his mighty foe, that scorcher of foes, viz, Vrishasena, pierced his assailant with twenty arrows and was himself pierced by him with five.
Mbh.8.66.3818 While fighting he was always protected by Vrishasena and by Sushena, both of whom are great bowmen!
Mbh.8.75.4552 The youthful Satanika, the son of Nakula, rushed against the youthful Vrishasena, the son of Karna, shooting showers of shafts.
Mbh.8.84.5117 There, O son of Radha, thy son, Vrishasena, filled with wrath at sight of the stupefaction that has overwhelmed thee, is rushing towards the Pandavas
Mbh.8.84.5119 Then Vrishasena, filled with wrath, and riding upon his own car, rushed towards that son of Pandu, viz, Vrikodara, who, armed with his mace, resembled the Destroyer himself with his fatal rod and was employed in slaughtering thy troops.
Mbh.8.84.5133 Thus struck with shafts by Vrishasena, Nakula struck his brave antagonist in return.
Mbh.8.84.5134 Pierced by the son of Pandu, Vrishasena became filled with wrath.
Mbh.8.84.5137 Deeply pierced by Vrishasena in that battle, O king, Pandu's son Nakula, that foremost of men, endued with great activity, became filled with rage and rushed in that encounter against the son of Karna from desire of slaying him.
Mbh.8.84.5138 Then Vrishasena poured showers of keen shafts upon Nakula of great energy as the latter precipitately advanced against him in that battle like a hawk with outstretched wings from desire of meat.
Mbh.8.84.5141 Without losing a moment, that resister of foes, Vrishasena, with half a dozen sharp razor-headed shafts, then cut off that naked sword of Nakula, polished and keen-edged, made of steel, capable of bearing a great strain and of destroying the bodies of all foes, and terrible and fierce as the poison of the snake, while he was whirling it rapidly.
Mbh.8.84.5142 After this, Vrishasena deeply pierced his antagonist in the centre of his chest with some well-tempered and keen shafts.
Mbh.8.84.5145 The high-souled and heroic Vrishasena then, filled with wrath, poured his arrowy showers upon those two mighty car-warriors for piercing those two sons of Pandu.
Mbh.8.84.5147 Then those two sons of Pandu, Bhima and Arjuna, filled with wrath, and resembling two fires fed with libations of clarified butter, poured terrible showers of arrows upon Vrishasena and the other assembled warriors around him.
Mbh.8.84.5153 Thus addressed in that battle by his brother, Nakula, standing before him, the diadem-decked Arjuna, that formidable hero, precipitately caused his ape-bannered vehicle, guided by Keshava himself, to be driven towards Vrishasena
Mbh.8.85.5189 Beholding that feat of Vrishasena, that achiever of superhuman feats, the Kauravas became filled with joy and applauded him greatly.
Mbh.8.85.5190 They, however, that were conversant with Dhananjaya's prowess, regarded Vrishasena as a libation already poured on the fire.
Mbh.8.85.5191 The diadem-decked Arjuna then, that slayer of hostile heroes, seeing Madri's son Nakula, that foremost of men, deprived of his steeds in the midst of all, and beholding Janardana mangled with arrows, rushed in that battle against Vrishasena who was then staying in front of the Suta's son Karna.
Mbh.8.85.5194 Once more Vrishasena pierced Partha in the left arm-pit with many formidable shafts.
Mbh.8.85.5196 The white-steeded Arjuna, having before been pierced by Vrishasena with those formidable arrows, became slightly enraged and set his heart on the slaughter of Karna's son.
Mbh.8.85.5197 The high-souled and diadem-decked Arjuna then, his brow furrowed from wrath with three lines, quickly sped from the van of battle a number of shafts for the destruction of Vrishasena in that encounter.
Mbh.8.85.5198 With eyes red in wrath, that hero capable of slaying Yama himself if the latter fought with him, then laughed terribly and said unto Karna and all the other Kaurava heroes headed by Duryodhana and Drona's son, these words, Today, O Karna, in thy very sight in this battle, I will despatch the fierce Vrishasena unto Yama's abode with my keen arrows!
Mbh.8.85.5202 I will slay the fierce Vrishasena.
Mbh.8.85.5206 Having said these words, Arjuna rubbed the string of his bow and took aim at Vrishasena in that battle, and sped, O king, a number of shafts for the slaughter of Karna's son.
Mbh.8.85.5207 The diadem-decked Arjuna then, fearlessly and with great force, pierced Vrishasena with ten shafts in all his vital limbs.
Mbh.8.87.5244 SECTION Sanjaya said, Beholding Vrishasena slain, Karna, filled with grief and rage, shed tears from his eyes for the death of his son.
Mbh.9.1.42 The heroic and mighty son of Karna, Vrishasena, hath been slain.
Mbh.9.62.4528 I am now like a moneyless wayfarer and shall follow in the wake of Drona who has already gone to heaven, of Karna and Shalya, of Vrishasena of great energy, of Shakuni the son of Subala, of Jalasandha of great valour, of king Bhagadatta, of Somadatta's son, that mighty bowman, of Jayadratha, the king of the Sindhus, of all my brothers headed by Duhshasana and equal unto myself, of Duhshasana's son of great prowess, and of Lakshmana, my son, and thousands of others that fought for me.
Mbh.11.15.608 When Vrishasena, however, had deprived Nakula of his steeds, O Bharata, thou quaffedst in battle the blood from Duhshasanas body!
Mbh.11.15.619 Seeing Nakula deprived of his steeds by Vrishasena in battle, I caused the rejoicing Kaurava brothers to be filled with dread.
Mbh.11.21.878 Behold, the wife of Karna and mother of Vrishasena, is indulging in piteous lamentations and crying and weeping and falling upon the ground!
Mbh.15.32.1301 There were the son of Jarasandha, and Bhagadatta, and Jalasandha of great energy, and Bhurisravas, and Sala, and Salya, and Vrishasena with his younger brother.
