See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.130 When I heard that Subhadra of the race of Madhu had, after forcible seizure been married by Arjuna in the city of Dwaraka, and that the two heroes of the race of Vrishni Krishna and Balarama the brothers of Subhadra without resenting it had entered Indraprastha as friends, then, O Sanjaya, I had no hope of success.
Mbh.1.1.175 When I heard that Yuyudhana of the race of Vrishni, after having thrown into confusion the army of Drona rendered unbearable in prowess owing to the presence of elephants, retired to where Krishna and Arjuna were, then, O Sanjaya, I had no hope of success.
Mbh.1.2.382 Then comes the third parva called Aranyaka relating to the forest This parva treats of the wending of the Pandavas to the forest and the citizens, following the wise Yudhishthira, Yudhishthira's adoration of the god of day; according to the injunctions of Dhaumya, to be gifted with the power of maintaining the dependent Brahmanas with food and drink: the creation of food through the grace of the Sun: the expulsion by Dhritarashtra of Vidura who always spoke for his master's good; Vidura's coming to the Pandavas and his return to Dhritarashtra at the solicitation of the latter; the wicked Duryodhana's plottings to destroy the forest-ranging Pandavas, being incited thereto by Karna; the appearance of Vyasa and his dissuasion of Duryodhana bent on going to the forest; the history of Surabhi; the arrival of Maitreya; his laying down to Dhritarashtra the course of action; and his curse on Duryodhana; Bhima's slaying of Kirmira in battle; the coming of the Panchalas and the princes of the Vrishni race to Yudhishthira on hearing of his defeat at the unfair gambling by Sakuni; Dhananjaya's allaying the wrath of Krishna; Draupadi's lamentations before Madhava; Krishna's cheering her; the fall of Sauva also has been here described by the Rishi; also Krishna's bringing Subhadra with her son to Dwaraka; and Dhrishtadyumna's bringing the son of Draupadi to Panchala; the entrance of the sons of Pandu into the romantic Dwaita wood; conversation of Bhima, Yudhishthira, and Draupadi; the coming of Vyasa to the Pandavas and his endowing Yudhishthira with the power of Pratismriti; then, after the departure of Vyasa, the removal of the Pandavas to the forest of Kamyaka; the wanderings of Arjuna of immeasurable prowess in search of weapons; his battle with Mahadeva in the guise of a hunter; his meeting with the lokapalas and receipt of weapons from them; his journey to the regions of Indra for arms and the consequent anxiety of Dhritarashtra; the wailings and lamentations of Yudhishthira on the occasion of his meeting with the worshipful great sage Brihadaswa.

Mbh.2.15.663 O thou supporter of the dignity of the Vrishni race, man's desires and propensities, like the wide earth itself adorned with many jewels, are varied and extensive.
Mbh.2.15.671 Madhava, O thou of the Vrishni race, I am repeatedly depressed by the thought whether Jarasandha is capable or not of being slain by thee, by Rama, by Bhimasena, or by Arjuna.
Mbh.2.19.860 O brave king, it was for this reason that the powerful Kukkura, Andhaka and Vrishni tribes, acting from motives of policy, did not deem it proper to fight with him
Mbh.2.21.914 Vaisampayana said, Thus saying those brothers of abundant energy, viz, he of the Vrishni race and the two Pandavas entered the city of Magadha.
Mbh.2.32.1378 And, O thou of the Vrishni race, it is through thy grace that vast wealth had been got by me.
Mbh.2.35.1490 Thus commanded by Bhishma, Sahadeva endued with great prowess duly presented the first Arghya of excellent ingredients unto Krishna of the Vrishni race.
Mbh.2.36.1495 SECTION XXXVI Sisupala said, O thou of the Kuru race, this one of the Vrishni race doth not deserve royal worship as if he were a king, in the midst of all these illustrious monarchs.
Mbh.2.36.1506 When Drona is here, how hast thou worshipped him of the Vrishni race?
Mbh.2.37.1546 The whole universe without limit is established in him of the Vrishni race.
Mbh.2.39.1598 Indeed, O child, like dogs before the lion, these monarchs are barking in rage before the sleeping lion of the Vrishni race.
Mbh.2.44.1799 And some amongst the kings applauded him of the Vrishni race in private.
Mbh.2.51.2154 And Vasudeva of the Vrishni race, in order to enhance the dignity of Arjuna, gave fourteen thousands of excellent elephants.
Mbh.2.79.3448 Nor will the mighty bowmen of the Vrishni race, nor the mighty warriors amongst the Panchalas suffer this in silence.
Mbh.3.12.634 O thou of the Vrishni race, at the beginning of the Yuga, there sprang from thy lotus-like navel, Brahma himself, and lord of all mobile and immobile things, and whose is this entire universe!
Mbh.3.14.768 And, O descendant of the Vrishni race, while thou wert away, where didst thou dwell?
Mbh.3.14.774 And having arrived there on a car made of precious metals and hence called the Souva, he had an encounter with the youthful princes of the Vrishni race, those bulls of that line, and fought With them mercilessly.
Mbh.3.14.776 And, O thou of mighty arms, he said, Where is that wretch of the Vrishni race, Vasudeva, the evil-souled son of Vasudeva?
Mbh.3.16.824 And beholding the army of Salwa, the youthful princess of the Vrishni race resolved to encounter it sallying out of the city.
Mbh.3.16.833 And, O best of monarchs, thus attacked, the heroic Samva, the perpetuator of the Vrishni race, bore that onset of Vegavat, keeping his ground.
Mbh.3.17.863 And the people beheld the fight between Salwa and the foremost of Vrishni heroes, which was even like unto the encounter between Vasava with Vali.
Mbh.3.18.881 And the combatants of the Vrishni and Andhaka races burst into exclamations of Oh!
Mbh.3.18.886 This is not the custom of the Vrishni heroes in battle!
Mbh.3.18.903 He is no son of the Vrishni race who forsaketh the field or slayeth the foe fallen at his feet and crying I am thine!
Mbh.3.18.913 What also will the wives of the Vrishni heroes when they meet together, say of me who had hitherto been considered as brave and well-conducted, respectable and possessed of manly pride?
Mbh.3.18.926 Satyaki, and Valadeva, and others of the Vrishni and Andhaka races always boast of me!
Mbh.3.20.975 And encouraging the citizens, O best of Bharatas, I cheerfully addressed king Ahuka, and Anakdundhuvi, and the chief heroes of the Vrishni race, saying, Do ye, O bulls among the Yadavas, stay in the city, taking every care, and know that I go to slay Salwa!
Mbh.3.21.1032 O Kesava, hear what thy father's friend sayeth: O son of the Vrishni race, O thou irrepressible one, in thy absence today Salwa, coming to Dwaraka, hath by main force killed Vasudeva!
Mbh.3.22.1075 Then those foremost of heroes of the Vrishni race who were of my army were, struck with panic, and all on a sudden began to fly in all directions.
Mbh.3.22.1084 And seeing my horses almost in their last gasp for breath, afflicted with that load of stones, my charioteer said unto me in words suitable to the occasion, O thou of the Vrishni race, behold Salwa the owner of the car of precious metals sitting yonder.
Mbh.3.22.1092 Therefore, O thou tiger among men, putting forth every exertion, slay him, O lord, O thou foremost of the Vrishni race!
Mbh.3.33.1760 Why, O son of Kunti, should we not wrest our kingdom from the foe, fighting with the aid of the Srinjayas and Kaikeyas, and the bull of the Vrishni race?
Mbh.3.118.6073 While he was acting thus, information reached both Valarama and Krishna that the king was practising penances of a most austere form and these two leaders of the entire Vrishni tribe accompanied with troops came to Yudhishthira of Ajamidha's race.
Mbh.3.188.9502 This is that ancient and supreme Lord Hari of inconceivable soul who hath taken his birth as Krishna of the Vrishni race, and who endued with mighty arms, seemeth to sport in this world!
Mbh.3.188.9504 Beholding this foremost of all gods, this ever-victorious Being, attired in yellow robes, this chief of the Vrishni race, my recollection cometh back to me!
Mbh.3.189.9517 Thus addressed, that foremost of Munis began his discourse again, delighting that tiger of the Vrishni race and the sons of Pandu as well.
Mbh.3.266.12955 The warring princes of the Andhaka and the Vrishni races, with Janardana at their head, and the mighty bowmen of the Kaikeya tribe, will all follow in my wake with great ardour.
Mbh.4.72.2821 And there came also ten thousand elephants and ten thousand cars, and hundred millions of horses and hundred billions of foot-soldiers, and innumerable Vrishni and Andhaka and Bhoja warriors of great energy, in the train of that tiger among the Vrishnis, Vasudeva of great effulgence.
Mbh.5.7.173 And when the descendant of Vrishni, Krishna awoke, he first cast his eyes on Arjuna.
Mbh.5.22.936 Who would be able to withstand Yudhishthira who hath the best of the Vrishni tribe Krishna for his leader?
Mbh.5.22.952 No foe whatsoever is capable of withstanding them, who are under the lead of that lion of the Vrishni tribe.
Mbh.5.22.955 Dhananjaya is, I conceive, equal to Indra, and the greatest of the Vrishni race, Krishna, is the Eternal Vishnu himself.
Mbh.5.48.2705 What enemy can withstand him who hath, for fighting in his van, that lion of the Vrishni race, that chief of the Somakas, who is modest and intelligent, mighty and endued with great energy, and blessed with every kind of prosperity?
Mbh.5.48.2713 That lion of the Vrishni race, that scion of Yadu's line, of superior training, hath diverse wonderful and excellent weapons.
Mbh.5.50.2872 With that warrior of long arms: endued with great activity in the use of weapons, possessed of intelligence and prowess incapable of being baffled, with that Yuyudhana, the lion of the Vrishni race, will you have to fight.
Mbh.5.78.3834 Beholding ourselves vanquished by sinful means and banished to the woods, even then, thou of the Vrishni race, I thought that Suyodhana deserved death at my hands.
Mbh.5.78.3840 Therefore, do without delay what thou, O thou of Vrishni race, thinkest to be proper and beneficial for the Pandavas, or what, indeed, should next be done
Mbh.5.80.3877 O thou of the Vrishni race, while we wandered in the woods, attachment for the kingdom was not so great as now.
Mbh.5.86.4101 Let all that scion of the Vrishni race deserves be given unto him
Mbh.5.89.4170 And the Vrishni hero, having approached king Dhritarashtra of great fame, worshipped him and Bhishma with proper words and without losing any time.
Mbh.5.90.4194 He that is compassionate to all creatures, is endued with modesty and acquainted with mighty weapons, is soft and delicate and virtuous, he that is dear to me, that mighty bowman Sahadeva, that hero and ornament of assemblies, he, O Krishna, who is youthful in years, is devoted to the service of his brothers, and is conversant with both virtue and profit, whose brothers, O slayer of Madhu, always applaud the disposition of that high-souled and well-behaved son of mine, tell me, O thou of the Vrishni race, of that heroic Sahadeva, that foremost of warriors, that son of Madri, who always waiteth submissively on his elder brothers and so reverentially on me.
Mbh.5.93.4390 Vaisampayana continued, Having said these words, that bull of the Vrishni race and delighter of Yadavas, then laid himself down on his soft bed for sleep
Mbh.5.94.4405 And Satyaki and Kritavarman and the other mighty car-warriors of the Vrishni race, all rode behind Krishna on cars and steeds and elephants.
Mbh.5.158.6996 And surrounded and guarded by those foremost warriors of the Vrishni race, resembling a herd of mighty tigers, like Vasava in the midst of the Maruts, the mighty-armed and handsome Rama, attired in garments of blue silk and resembling the peak of the Kailasa mountain, and endued with the sportive gait of the lion and possessed of eyes having their ends reddened with drink, came there at such a time.
Mbh.5.171.7727 Foremost among the heroes of the Vrishni race, he is endued with great wrath, and is perfectly dauntless.
Mbh.6.20.964 That large force which was well protected by mighty car-warriors of the Vrishni and the Bhoja races, as also by the warriors of Surashtra well-armed and well-acquainted with the uses of weapons, and which was led by Kritavarman, proceeded towards the south of the army.
Mbh.6.25.1108 And the women becoming corrupt, an intermingling of castes happeneth, O descendant of Vrishni.
Mbh.6.27.1288 Arjuna said, Impelled by whom, O son of the Vrishni race, doth a man commit sin, even though unwilling and as if constrained by force?
Mbh.6.58.3040 Then the brave warriors led by Suvala's son from anger, cut into pieces the excellent car of the Vrishni hero, with weapons of diverse kinds.
Mbh.6.72.3864 Then Bhishma, aiming an exceedingly fierce shaft, felled the charioteer of the Vrishni hero from his box in the car.
Mbh.6.74.3943 Beholding then his mighty sons thus slain in battle, the Vrishni hero Satyaki, O king, uttering a loud roar, rushed against Bhurisravas.
Mbh.6.85.4462 Chekitana of the Vrishni race, in the very sight of all the troops, covered with his shafts Gautama, that foremost of car-warriors.
Mbh.6.102.5475 Desirous, O king, of rescuing, his son who was afflicted by the Vrishni hero, Drona, in that great battle, pierced the latter with a shaft of exceeding sharpness.
Mbh.6.105.5608 Beholding that irresistible dart, resembling Death himself, coursing towards him, that illustrious warrior of the Vrishni race baffled it by the celerity of movements.
Mbh.6.105.5609 Thereupon that fierce dart, unable to reach him of the Vrishni race, fell down on the earth like a large meteor of blazing splendour.
Mbh.6.113.6174 Regard for Brahmanas, self-restraint, liberality, asceticism, and noble conduct, are seen in Yudhishthira alone who hath for his brothers Dhananjaya, and the mighty Bhimasena, and the twin sons of Madri by Pandu, and who hath Vasudeva of the Vrishni race for his protector.
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.7.11.424 Gada, and Samva, and Pradyumna, and Viduratha, and Charudeshna, and Sarana, and Ulmukha, and Nisatha, and the valiant Jhilivabhru, and Prithu, and Viprithu, and Samika, and Arimejaya, these and other mighty Vrishni heroes, accomplished in smiting, will, standing on the field of battle, take up their position in the Pandava host, when summoned by that Vrishni hero, viz, the high-souled Kesava.
Mbh.7.11.430 If the Kauravas happen to vanquish the Pandavas, he, of the Vrishni race, will then, for the sake of the latter, take up his mighty weapon.
Mbh.7.23.1222 The noble Kripa, son of Saradwata, with many small arrows resisted Vardhakshemi of the Vrishni race who was the embodiment of wrath in battle.
Mbh.7.23.1223 They that looked at Kripa, son of Saradwata, with many small arrows, resisted Vardhakshemi of the Vrishni race who was the embodiment of wrath in battle.
Mbh.7.70.3023 Equal unto the high-souled Vrishni hero, Kesava, himself in prowess and learning and dignity, how hath he been slain on the field of battle?
Mbh.7.70.3024 The favourite son of that daughter of the Vrishni race, always cherished by me, alas, if I do not see him I will repair to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.76.3307 Fie on the strength of Bhimasena, on the bowmanship of Partha, on the prowess of the Vrishni heroes, and the might of the Panchalas!
Mbh.7.83.3694 There where Vrikodara and Arjuna are, and the Vrishni hero, Satyaki, and Uttamaujas of the Panchalas, and the invincible Yudhamanyu, and the irrepressible Dhrishtadyumna, and the unvanquished Sikhandin, the Asmakas, the Kekayas, and Kshatradharman of the Somakas, the ruler of the Chedis, and Chekitana, and Vibhu, the son of the ruler of the Kasi, the sons of Draupadi, and Virata and the mighty car-warrior Drupada, and those tigers among men viz, the twins Nakula and Sahadeva, and the stayer of Madhu to offer counsel, who is there in this world that would fight these, expecting to live?
Mbh.7.94.4334 And thus the Vrishni hero, O sire, rescued Dhrishtadyumna, who had been seized by that lion among men, the foremost of preceptors, like a deer seized by the king of the forests.
Mbh.7.95.4339 SECTION XCVII Dhritarashtra said, After that shafts of Drona had been cut off and Dhrishtadyumna thus rescued, O Sanjaya, by Yuyudhana, that foremost one of the Vrishni race, what did that great bowman, that foremost of all wielders of weapons, viz, Drona, do in battle unto that tiger among men, viz, the grandson of Sini'
Mbh.7.100.4668 Then the Vrishni hero Krishna, without taking any time, said unto Arjuna these words: Draw thy bow quickly and with great force, for I will blow my conch'
Mbh.7.107.5033 It behoveth thee not, O thou of the Vrishni race, to falsify that expectation of Dhananjaya, and also of myself and Bhima!
Mbh.7.107.5080 Amongst the foremost ones of the Vrishni race, two are regarded as Atirathas.
Mbh.7.112.5494 With another sharp and well tempered broad-headed arrow, he cut off the bow of the Vrishni hero while the latter was drawing it.
Mbh.7.114.5610 Meanwhile, Drona, once more proceeding to the gate of the array, took up his station there, borne away from Satyaki's presence by those steeds, fleet as the wind, that had been, afflicted with the shafts of the Vrishni hero.
Mbh.7.120.5913 Then Duhsasana, inflamed with wrath and desirous of slaying the Vrishni hero, hurled at him, as he proceeded, a dart made wholly of iron.
Mbh.7.123.6079 The love I bear to the Vrishni hero, to that invincible warrior of the Satwata race, viz, Satyaki, is not less than the love I bear to Arjuna, that slayer of foes.
Mbh.7.123.6082 Loud is the noise I hear of unretreating heroes, fighting together against that Vrishni hero of great intelligence.
Mbh.7.124.6154 Hearing those loud and terrible blasts, capable of filling the three Worlds with fear, the son of Dharma once more addressed Bhimasena, saying, There, the Vrishni hero is fiercely blowing his conch.
Mbh.7.137.6880 Thou art skilled in narration, O Sanjaya, tell me truly how the Vrishni hero Satyaki fought, who striving resolutely for Dhananjaya's sake, alone entered in rage the vast force, disturbing and agitating it repeatedly, like an elephant plunging into a lake overgrown with lotuses'
Mbh.7.137.6895 Indeed, O king, thus careering in the midst of the foe, the Vrishni hero, while proceeding in the wake of Arjuna, was seen repeatedly to destroy with his shafts the Kuru host, like the hurricane dispersing gathering masses of clouds.
Mbh.7.139.7021 O Partha, since Bhurisravas is thus prevailing over the Vrishni hero, Satyaki, of prowess incapable of being baffled, the very name of the latter is about to be falsified
Mbh.7.139.7023 Without slaying Satyaki that foremost one among the heroes of the Vrishni race, the Kuru warrior is only dragging him like a mighty lion in the forest dragging a huge elephant'
Mbh.7.140.7043 This mean act that thou hast perpetrated for the sake of the Vrishni warrior, is without doubt, conformable to Vasudeva's counsels.
Mbh.7.140.7096 Thy soldiers also argued the matter, It is no fault of the Vrishni hero.
Mbh.7.140.7100 It was ordained that Bhurisravas would be slain by the Vrishni hero.
Mbh.7.141.7151 The Vrishni heroes are all of sure aim in battle, and are conversant with all modes of warfare.
Mbh.7.141.7160 The very gods and Asuras and Gandharvas, the Yakshas, the Uragas and the Rakshasas cannot vanquish the Vrishni heroes, what need be said of men, therefore, in battle?
Mbh.7.144.7489 Dhritarashtra said, Tell me, O Sanjaya, how the battle took place between the heroic Karna and Satyaki of the Vrishni race, after the fall of Bhurisravas and of the ruler of the Sindhus.
Mbh.7.146.7647 Be it the conquest of the world, or be it the conquest of the three worlds, everything is certain, O thou of the Vrishni race, in their case with whom thou art gratified, O giver of honours!
Mbh.7.159.8608 Dyed all over with blood, those illustrious warriors of the Kuru and the Vrishni races looked at each other with their glances.
Mbh.7.196.10935 Thou art a perpetrator of evil deeds, and not I, O wretch the Vrishni race!
Mbh.8.40.2077 Of all the heroes in the Vrishni race, it is Krishna in whom Prosperity is always established.
Mbh.8.54.3080 The encounter then that took place between the Vrishni and the Pancala warriors in that battle became exceedingly fierce, like that between two hawks, O king, for a piece of meat.
Mbh.8.65.3801 Sanjaya continued, Hearing in the midst of foes, those words of his brother Bhimasena that were difficult of accomplishment, Arjuna, desiring to see the king, addressed the Vrishni hero, saying, Urge the steeds, O Hrishikesha, leaving this sea of troops!
Mbh.8.69.4064 O Keshava of the Vrishni clan, thou knowest my vow that whoever among men would tell me, Partha, give thy Gandiva to some one braver than you' I shall at once put an end to his life.
Mbh.8.90.5749 Seeing that weapon thus destroyed, the Vrishni hero, addressing Arjuna, said, Shoot high weapons, O Partha!
Mbh.9.21.1293 The shafts sped with great force from the bows of the two Vrishni lions were seen by us in the welkin to resemble flights of swiftly coursing insects.
Mbh.10.9.698 He of the Vrishni race, O Bharata, used to boast of thee, O lord, in every assembly, saying, Duryodhana of Kurus race is a worthy disciple of mine'
Mbh.10.12.865 No one among the other great car-warriors of the Vrishni and the Andhaka race residing in Dvaraka has ever asked this of me which thou hast asked!
Mbh.12.207.12566 That extensive race of the Prajapati Sasavindu became in time the progenitor of the Vrishni race.
Mbh.14.11.327 Knowing the king, the son of Pritha, afflicted in mind, and bereft of his relatives and kinsmen slain in battle, and appearing crest-fallen like the sun darkened eclipse, or fire smothered by smoke, that prop of the Vrishni race Krishna, comforting the son of Dharma, essayed to address him thus
Mbh.14.15.418 O descendant of Kuru, in these delightful and sacred and heaven-like halls of assembly a long time hath fleeted away in thy company without my seeing Vasudeva, Valadeva and other leaders of the Vrishni race.
Mbh.14.52.2266 O perpetuator of the Vrishni race, the king has obtained victory through thy grace.
Mbh.14.52.2301 Thou shalt also see the irresistible Valadeva and other chiefs of the Vrishni race,
Mbh.14.53.2352 Phalguna repeatedly embraced the Vrishni hero, and as long as he was within the range of vision, he repeatedly turned his eyes towards him.
Mbh.14.59.2735 The heroes of the Bhoja, Vrishni, and Andhaka races, all came forward to receive that high-souled one like the deities advancing to receive him of a hundred sacrifices.
Mbh.14.61.2836 Hearing these lamentations of this daughter of the Vrishni race, Pritha, deeply afflicted with grief, addressed her and slowly said, O Subhadra, though protected by Vasudeva and Satyaki and by his own sire, thy youthful son has yet been slain.
Mbh.14.61.2847 She also made many presents unto the Brahmanas, and bestowed upon them many kine, O perpetuator of Yadu's race, Then the Vrishni dame Kunti, comforted a little, addressed the daughter of Virata, saying, O faultless daughter of Virata, thou shouldst not indulge in grief.
Mbh.14.62.2877 That which was uttered by the Vrishni hero on a former occasion, will, without doubt, happen.
Mbh.14.66.2970 It was while the Vrishni heroes, O Janamejaya, were residing in the Kuru city, O king, that thy sire, that slayer of hostile heroes, was born.
Mbh.14.67.3020 It having pledged thyself previously thou dost not accomplish thy auspicious vow, do thou then know for certain, O chief of the Vrishni race, that I shall cast off my life.
Mbh.14.70.3105 The other chiefs of the Vrishni race, did the same.
Mbh.14.70.3111 Hearing that the Pandavas were near, those foremost ones of the Vrishni race went out.
Mbh.14.71.3132 Indeed, those heroes, with those foremost princes of the Vrishni and the Andhaka races, paid the sage their adorations.
Mbh.14.83.3723 Next he proceeded to the beautiful city of Dwaravati protected by the heroes of the Vrishni race.
Mbh.14.89.3999 The illustrious son of Pandu, that chastiser of foes, then duly worshipped the high-souled Govinda and Valadeva of great might, and the thousands of other Vrishni heroes having Pradyumna for their first.
Mbh.16.1.28 Vaishampayana continued: One day, the Vrishni heroes numbering Sarana amongst them, saw Vishvamitra and Kanwa and Narada arrived at Dwaraka.
Mbh.16.3.83 SECTION Vaishampayana said: At that time the Vrishni ladies dreamed every night that a woman of black complexion and white teeth, entering their abodes, laughed aloud and ran through Dvaraka, snatching from them the auspicious threads in their wrists.
Mbh.16.5.204 Indeed, the son of Vasava, endued with great intelligence, beheld the city to look even thus, reft as it was of the Vrishni heroes.
Mbh.16.7.252 I shall, however, O chastiser of foes, first remove to Indraprastha the women of the Vrishni race as also the children and the aged.
Mbh.16.7.253 Having said so unto his uncle, Arjuna next addressed Daruka, saying, I wish to see without any delay the chief officers of the Vrishni heroes.
Mbh.16.7.279 After it was all over, the boys of the Vrishni and Andhaka races, headed by Vajra, as also the ladies, offered oblations of water to the high-souled hero.
Mbh.16.7.286 The widows of the Vrishni heroes, wailing aloud, followed the high-souled son of Pandu.
Mbh.16.7.293 The children of the Andhaka and the Vrishni races, all followed Arjuna.
Mbh.16.7.295 The widows of the other heroes of the Bhoja, the Vrishni, and the Andhaka races, lordless now, that set out with Arjuna, numbered many millions.
Mbh.16.7.300 Dhananjaya, after abandoning Dvaraka, proceeded by slow marches, causing the Vrishni women to rest in pleasant forests and mountains and by the sides of delightful streams.
Mbh.16.7.318 The Vrishni warriors including the foot-soldiers, the elephant-warriors, and the car-men, failed to rescue those Vrishni women that were being snatched away by the robbers.
Mbh.16.7.335 The high-souled one, taking with him the remnant of the Vrishni women, and the wealth that was still with them, reached Kurukshetra.
Mbh.16.8.364 At Prabhasa, through iron bolts generated by the curse denounced by Brahmanas, the destruction has taken place of the Vrishni heroes.
Mbh.16.8.366 The heroes of the Bhoja, the Andhaka, and the Vrishni races, O Brahmana, who were all endued with high souls, great might, and leonine pride, have slaughtered one another in battle.
Mbh.16.8.373 Deprived of the company of the Vrishni heroes, I desire not to live in this world.
Mbh.16.8.376 In my very sight, O Brahmana, thousands of Vrishni ladies were carried away by the Abhiras of the country of the five waters, who assailed us.
Mbh.16.8.389 Vyasa said, The mighty car-warriors of the Vrishni and the Andhaka races have all been consumed by the Brahmanas curse.
Mbh.17.1.4 Janamejaya said: Having heard of that encounter with iron bolts between the heroes of the Vrishni and the Andhaka races, and having been informed also of Krishnas ascension to Heaven, what did the Pandavas do
