MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.2.387 Then the story of Rishyasringa who adopted Brahmacharya mode of life from his very boyhood; then the history of Rama of great prowess, the son of Jamadagni, in which has been narrated the death of Kartavirya and the Haihayas; then the meeting between the Pandavas and the Vrishnis in the sacred spot called Prabhasa; then the story of Su-kanya in which Chyavana, the son of Bhrigu, made the twins, Aswinis, drink, at the sacrifice of king Saryati, the Soma juice from which they had been excluded by the other gods, and in which besides is shown how Chyavana himself acquired perpetual youth as a boon from the grateful Aswinis.

Mbh.1.220.10709 SECTION CCXXI Subhadra-harana Parva Vaisampayana said, O best of monarchs, within a few days after this, there commenced on the Raivataka mountain, a grand festival of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas.
Mbh.1.220.10710 At the mountain-festival of the Bhojas, the Vrishnis and the Andhakas, the heroes of those tribes began to give away much wealth unto Brahmanas by thousands.
Mbh.1.221.10745 Stirred up by that sound, the Bhojas, the Vrishnis, and the Andhakas began to pour in from all sides.
Mbh.1.221.10772 Then all the Bhojas, Vrishnis, and Andhakas, present there, approved of everything that Valadeva had said, deeply roaring like unto a kettle-drum or the clouds
Mbh.1.222.10819 These and many other Vrishnis and Bhojas, and Andhakas came to Indraprastha, bringing with them many nuptial presents.
Mbh.1.222.10826 That best of men, viz, Kesava of mighty arms, accompanied by Rama and many of the Vrishnis, Andhakas and Bhojas, having entered the town, was worshipped by the citizens and Brahmanas by thousands.
Mbh.1.222.10848 The Kurus and the Vrishnis with joyous hearts amused themselves there, setting up at times loud shouts mingled with clappings of the hand.
Mbh.2.14.640 These Maharathas, choosing the middle country, are now living amongst the Vrishnis.
Mbh.2.32.1372 While they were thus talking, Hari Krishna, that omniscient and ancient one, that soul of the Vedas, that invincible one as described by those that have knowledge, that foremost of all lasting existences in the universe, that origin of all things, as also that in which all things come to be dissolved, that lord of the past, the future, and the present Kesava, the slayer of Kesi, and the bulwark of all Vrishnis and the dispeller of all fear in times of distress and the smiter of all foes, having appointed Vasudeva to the command of the Yadava army, and bringing with him for the king Yudhishthira just a large mass of treasure; entered that excellent city of cities.
Mbh.2.33.1422 And Rama and Aniruddha and Kanaka and Sarana; and Gada, Pradyumna, Shamva, and Charudeshna of great energy; and Ulmuka and Nishatha and the brave Angavaha; and innumerable other Vrishnis, all mighty car-warriors, came there.
Mbh.2.36.1524 This wretch born in the race of the Vrishnis unrighteously slew of old the illustrious king Jarasandha.
Mbh.2.38.1583 Arrayed let us stand in battle against the assembled Vrishnis and the Pandavas'
Mbh.2.49.2057 O king, as the wise Uddhava is ever regarded amongst the Vrishnis, so is Vidura possessed of great intelligence esteemed as the foremost of the Kurus.
Mbh.2.50.2123 I also saw numberless Chins and Sakas and Uddras and many barbarous tribes living in the woods, and many Vrishnis and Harahunas, and dusky tribes of the Himavat, and many Nipas and people residing in regions on the sea-coast, waiting at the gate being refused permission to enter.
Mbh.2.51.2173 And, O Bharata, only two do not pay tribute unto the son of Kunti, viz, the Panchalas in consequence of their relationship by marriage, and the Andhakas and Vrishnis in consequence of their friendship.
Mbh.3.12.593 SECTION XII Arjunabhigamana Parva Vaisampayana said, Hearing that the Pandavas had been banished, the Bhojas, the Vrishnis, and the Andhakas went to those heroes residing in affliction in the great forest.
Mbh.3.12.664 O slayer of Madhu, while the sons of Pandu and the Panchalas and the Vrishnis lived, they dared express the desire of using me as their slave!
Mbh.3.14.775 And slaughtering many youthful Vrishnis of heroic valour, the wicked one devastated all the gardens of the city.
Mbh.3.15.807 And all the Vrishnis and the Andhakas, well-knowing that they would be slain by Salwa if they behaved carelessly, remained sober and watchful.
Mbh.3.15.814 And, O king, at the time of Salwa's approach, nobody could either enter or leave the town of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas without presenting the sign that had been agreed upon.
Mbh.3.18.880 SECTION XVIII Vasudeva continued, O king, afflicted with the arrows of Salwa, when Pradyumna became senseless the Vrishnis who had come to the fight were all disheartened and filled with grief!
Mbh.3.18.906 And, O son of Daruka, thou art acquainted with the customs of the Vrishnis in battle!
Mbh.3.18.907 Versed as thou art with all the customs of the Vrishnis in battle, do thou, O Suta, never again fly from the field as thou hast done!
Mbh.3.19.935 SECTION XIX Vasudeva continued, Thus addressed, the son of Suta race replied in haste unto Pradyumna, that foremost of all endued with strength, in these sweet words, O son of Rukmini, I fear not to guide the horses on the field of battle, and I am acquainted also with the customs of the Vrishnis in war!
Mbh.3.19.969 Then O king, the wicked Salwa, thus afflicted by the Vrishnis, mounted on his car of precious metals, and leaving Dwaraka scudded through the skies
Mbh.3.20.972 And alarmed by the aspect, I asked the son of Hridika saying, Why is it that the men and women of the city of the Vrishnis are so woe-begone, O tiger among men'
Mbh.3.51.2546 The mighty warriors of the Vrishnis also, and the Panchalas of great energy, and the sons of Pritha themselves, led by Vasudeva of unbaffled prowess, will blast my legions.
Mbh.3.51.2547 O charioteer, all the warriors on my side assembled together, are not competent to bear the impetus of the Vrishnis alone when commanded by Rama and Krishna.
Mbh.3.118.6074 And when the Vrishnis beheld that the sons of Pandu lay down on the ground, their bodies besmeared all over with dirt and when they beheld the daughter of Drupada in a sad state, their grief was great and they could not refrain from breaking out in loud lamentations.
Mbh.3.118.6075 Then the king, whose courage was such that misfortune never could cast him down, cordially met Rama and Krishna and Samva, Krishna's son, and the grand-son of Sini and other Vrishnis, and paid honour to them in a suitable form.
Mbh.3.118.6080 And they were happy to learn all this news from him; but when they saw the Pandavas so exceedingly lean, the majestic and magnanimous Vrishnis could not forbear shedding tears, which spontaneously gushed from their eyes on account of the agony they felt
Mbh.3.119.6082 when the sons of Pandu and the Vrishnis reached the holy spot Prabhasa, what did they do and what conversation was held there by them, for all of them were of mighty souls, proficient in all the branches of science and both the Vrishnis and the sons of Pandu held one another in friendly estimation
Mbh.3.119.6083 Vaisampayana said, When the Vrishnis reached the holy spot Prabhasa, the sacred landing-place on the coast of the sea, they surrounded the sons of Pandu and waited upon them.
Mbh.3.120.6146 Let the united army of the Satwatas and Suras, together with the best soldiers of the Vrishnis, the Bhojas, and the Andhakas, kill those sons of Dhritarashtra in the field of battle and let them swell their expanded fame throughout the world.
Mbh.3.182.9031 Your sons enter the town of the Vrishnis and take an immediate liking to the people there.
Mbh.3.182.9051 Vaisampayana said, O descendant of Bharata, while Krishna, the descendant of the Vrishnis and the virtuous king, were thus talking, there appeared then the saint Markandeya, grown grey in the practise of penances.
Mbh.3.233.11836 And the Andhakas and Vrishnis, including Rama and others, regard them with affection.
Mbh.3.252.12456 And, O bull of the Bharata race, having subjugated the Avantis and concluded peace with them, and having met with the Vrishnis, he conquered the west.
Mbh.3.301.14839 Thou art born in the race of the Vrishnis, and art the favourite daughter of Sura.
Mbh.4.68.2685 How also couldst thou, O child, encounter Drona, that foremost of all wielders of weapons, that preceptor of the Vrishnis and Kauravas, twice-born one who may be regarded as the preceptor of all the Kshatriyas?
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.5.7.166 And after Krishna and Valadeva, the descendants of Madhu, had both departed for Dwaraka with all the Vrishnis, the Andhakas and the Bhojas, by hundreds, the royal son of Dhritarashtra had, by sending secret emissaries, furnished himself with information of all the doings of the Pandavas.
Mbh.5.27.1121 O Ajatasatru, if without war, the Kurus will not yield thy share, I think, it is far better for thee to live upon alms in the kingdom of the Andhakas and the Vrishnis than obtain sovereignty by war.
Mbh.5.28.1189 This Satyaki, these Chedis, the Andhakas, the Vrishnis, the Bhojas, the Kukuras, the Srinjayas, adopting the counsels of Krishna, slay their foes and delight their friends.
Mbh.5.28.1190 The Vrishnis and the Andhakas, at whose head stands Ugrasena, led by Krishna, have become like Indra, high-spirited, devoted to truth, mighty, and happy.
Mbh.5.48.2743 It was Krishna, who, having Baladeva for his second, slew Ugrasena's wicked son Kansa, seated in court in the midst of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas, and then gave unto Ugrasena the kingdom.
Mbh.5.48.2773 And Janardana also, that lion among the Vrishnis, endued with the knowledge of the invisible future, without doubt, beholdeth all this.
Mbh.5.49.2817 Just this is what Narada, conversant with the Vedas, had said unto the Vrishnis.
Mbh.5.51.2920 That the Kauravas in consequence of Bhishma's prowess, and the Andhakas and the Vrishnis in consequence of their policy, could not be subjugated by him was due only to their good fortune.
Mbh.5.57.3147 Sanjaya said, I have seen Krishna, the foremost of the Andhakas and the Vrishnis, arrived there, and Chekitana, as also Satyaki, otherwise called Yuyudhana.
Mbh.5.62.3335 Karna said, Without doubt, the chief of the Vrishnis is even so.
Mbh.5.65.3416 That honoured warrior among the Andhakas and the Vrishnis, the irresistible Satyaki, ever engaged in the good of the Pandavas, will also slaughter thy host.
Mbh.5.71.3529 The assembled Kauravas will behold that high-souled and adorable One, that slayer of foes, that chief of the Vrishnis, uttering words full of kindness, and fascinating all of my party.
Mbh.5.72.3537 O chastiser of foes, thou protectest the Vrishnis in all their calamities, do thou now protect the Pandavas also from a great danger, for they deserve thy protection'
Mbh.5.76.3770 Therefore, I shall tell thee, O delighter of the Vrishnis, about my own prowess and unrivalled might.
Mbh.5.82.3925 O Kesava, the sons of Pandu, the Panchalas, and the Vrishnis being all alive, exposed to the gaze of the assembly I was treated as a slave by those sinful wretches.
Mbh.5.86.4081 Indeed, Madhava is the guardian and protector of the Prosperous kingdom of Vrishnis and is the illustrious Great-Grandsire of even the three worlds.
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.5.88.4144 He will come here tomorrow morning; and when he is confined, the Vrishnis and the Pandavas, aye, the whole earth, will submit to me.
Mbh.5.89.4180 And that scion of Dasarha's race, that chief of the Vrishnis, unto whom the past and the future were as the present, knowing that Vidura was loved by the Pandavas and friendly towards them, and learned, and firm in morality, and honest, and harbouring no wrath against the Pandavas, and wise, began to tell him everything in detail about the doings of the sons of Pandu
Mbh.5.94.4402 And understanding that his handsome car adorned with every ornament and producing a rattle, deep as the rumbling of the mighty masses of clouds, was ready, the high-souled Janardana, that delighter of all the Yadavas, walking round the sacred fire and a band of Brahmanas, and putting on the gem known by the name of Kaustubha, and blazing with beauty, surrounded by the Kurus, and well-protected by the Vrishnis, mounted on it.
Mbh.5.94.4420 And before Vasudeva sat Karna and Duryodhana, while behind him were seated the Vrishnis with Kritavarman.
Mbh.5.128.5676 And all the Yadavas and Andhakas and the Vrishnis, abandoning a single person, viz, Kansa for the sake of their whole race, have prospered and obtained happiness.
Mbh.5.131.5820 Here, however, are all the Pandavas and all the Vrishnis and Andhakas.
Mbh.5.131.5829 And behind him stood Bhima, and Yudhishthira, and the two sons of Madri, and before him were all the Andhakas and the Vrishnis with Pradyumna and other chiefs bearing mighty weapons upraised.
Mbh.5.131.5844 And there also appeared, mounted on his car, that favourite hero of Vrishnis, the mighty car-warrior Kritavarman, the son of Hridika.
Mbh.5.140.6266 On the side of thy father, thou hast the sons of Pritha, on the side of thy mother, thou hast the Vrishnis, for thy kinsmen.
Mbh.5.140.6270 All the kings and princes, again, that have been assembled for the Pandava-cause, and all the Andhakas and Vrishnis, will also embrace thy feet.
Mbh.5.140.6280 I myself, with all the Andhakas and the Vrishnis, will walk behind thee.
Mbh.5.154.6837 SECTION CLIV Janamejaya said, Hearing that Yudhishthira had, with his troops marched from the desire of battle and encamped on Kurukshetra, protected by Vasudeva, and aided by Virata and Drupada with their sons, and surrounded by the Kekayas, the Vrishnis, and other kings by hundreds, and watched over by numerous mighty car-warriors, like the great Indra himself by the Adityas, what measures were concerted by king Duryodhana?
Mbh.5.199.8861 And there also was that mighty bowman, Satyaki, the foremost car-warrior of the Vrishnis, that mighty combatant, surrounded by hundreds and thousands of cars and leading them to battle!
Mbh.6.34.1619 I am Vasudeva among the Vrishnis, I am Dhananjaya among the sons of Pandu.
Mbh.6.59.3200 Great is the respect thou payest me, O Lord of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas.
Mbh.6.108.5753 Then in that fierce hour of night, the Pandavas, the Vrishnis and the invincible Srinjayas sat down for a consultation.
Mbh.6.112.6090 And seeing that mighty car-warrior among the Vrishnis thus surrounded, Duryodhana, angrily addressing all his brothers, said, Take such steps, ye Kauravas, that Satyaki may not, in this battle, escape you and this large division of cars, with life.
Mbh.7.10.375 The foremost hero among the Vrishnis, exceedingly brave among all bowmen, equal to Rama himself in knowledge and the use of weapons and in prowess and fame, know, O Sanjaya, that truth and firmness, intelligence and heroism, and knowledge of Brahma, and high weapons, are all in him Satyaki of the Satwata race, as the three worlds are in Kesava.
Mbh.7.10.385 He whom the Vrishnis regarded as superior in battle to a hundred car-warriors, O, who resisted that great bowman, viz, Chekitana, for keeping him away from Drona?
Mbh.7.72.3178 The Kaurvas, the Pandavas, the Vrishnis, and other men, as also myself with my son, are all mortal and short-lived!
Mbh.7.81.3588 O Janardana, as thou always savest the Vrishnis in all calamities, even so it behoveth thee to save us from this distress, O mighty-armed one!
Mbh.7.84.3721 If thou hadst done any of these acts, the Pandavas, the Panchalas, the Vrishnis, and the other kings would then have never known thy wrong-headedness.
Mbh.7.107.4973 Hearing that terrible uproar and beholding that hero of Madhu's race thus afflicted, king Yudhishthira, O monarch, addressing all his soldiers, said, That foremost one among the Vrishnis, viz, the brave Satyaki, of prowess incapable of being baffled, is about to be devoured by the heroic Drona, like the sun by Rahu.
Mbh.7.107.5031 Even if Kesava and Rama, and Aniruddha, and the mighty car-warrior Pradyumna, and Gada, and Sarana, and Samva, with all the Vrishnis, case themselves in mail for assisting us, O king, in the field of battle, I shall yet appoint that tiger among men viz, Satyaki of unbaffled prowess, for our aid, since there is none equal to him'
Mbh.7.112.5516 Then, O sire, wails of woe arose among thy troops, at the sight of Jalasandha slain by that bull among the Vrishnis.
Mbh.7.117.5721 That tiger amongst the Vrishnis then, thus struck with their arrows, proudly pierced every one of them, O monarch, with three arrows.
Mbh.7.123.6069 Not seeing that tiger among men viz, the ape-bannered Arjuna, and not hearing also the twang of Gandiva, the monarch became filled with anxiety, not seeing Satyaki also, that foremost of car-warriors among the Vrishnis, king Yudhishthira the Just became equally anxious.
Mbh.7.136.6855 Indeed, having made Bhima carless, Karna, O king, reproved him in such boastful language in the sight of that lion among the Vrishnis viz, Krishna and of the high-souled Partha.
Mbh.7.139.6979 Those two heroes, those two warriors that enhanced the fame of the Kurus and the Vrishnis respectively, both of noble lineage, thus poured upon each other their arrowy showers.
Mbh.7.139.6982 Those heroes of excellent feats, those enhancers of the fame of the Kurus and the Vrishnis, thus fought with each other, like two leaders of elephantine herds.
Mbh.7.139.7008 Then the mighty-armed Krishna, addressing Arjuna, said, Behold, that tiger among the Vrishnis and the Andhakas has succumbed to Somadatta's son.
Mbh.7.139.7013 Dhananjaya, with a cheerful heart addressing Vasudeva, said, Behold, that bull amongst the Rurus and that foremost one among the Vrishnis are sporting with each other, like a huge elephant mad with rage sporting with a mighty lion in the forest.
Mbh.7.139.7020 Vasudeva once more, O king, addressed Arjuna and said, Behold, that tiger among the Vrishnis and the Andhakas, that disciple of thine, O mighty-armed one, not inferior to thee in bowmanship, hath succumbed to Somadatta's son.
Mbh.7.140.7046 The Vrishnis and the Andhakas are bad Kshatriyas, ever engaged in sinful deeds, and are, by nature, addicted to disreputable behaviour.
Mbh.7.141.7163 The Vrishnis regard even the strong as weak and rescue them from distress.
Mbh.7.141.7164 Always devoted to the gods, the Vrishnis are self-restrained, charitable, and free from pride.
Mbh.7.141.7165 It is for this that the prowess of the Vrishnis is never baffled.
Mbh.7.141.7166 A person may remove the mountains of Meru or swim across the ocean but cannot defeat the Vrishnis.
Mbh.7.153.7998 Two persons, indeed, among the Vrishnis are reputed to be the foremost of great car-warriors, viz, Pradyumna of mighty energy and thou also, O Satyaki!
Mbh.7.155.8290 I will vanquish in battle all the Pandavas united together and all the Panchalas, the Kaikeyas, and the Vrishnis assembled together.
Mbh.7.162.8790 Then brave Kritavarman, that great car-warrior among the Vrishnis, within less than the twinkling of an eye, made Yudhishthira steedless and driverless and carless.
Mbh.7.189.10470 With skill acquired by practice and without insolence, behold that enhancer of the fame of the Vrishnis, viz, Satyaki, careering in battle, sporting the while with those mighty car-warriors.
Mbh.7.196.10896 Since, having perpetrated such a sinful act, again applauding thyself in the midst of human beings, thou incurrest the censures of the Parthas and all the Andhakas and the Vrishnis.
Mbh.7.196.10965 Then Sahadeva, O king, jumping down from his own car, addressed Satyaki, thus held fast by the strong arms of Bhima, in these words, O tiger among men, O thou of Madhu's race, we have no friends dearer to us than the Andhakas, the Vrishnis and the Panchalas.
Mbh.7.196.10966 So also the Andhakas and the Vrishnis, particularly Krishna, cannot have any friends dearer than ourselves.
Mbh.7.196.10967 The Panchalas, also, O thou of Vrishni's race, even if they search the whole world to the confines of the sea, have no friends dearer to them than the Pandavas and the Vrishnis.
Mbh.7.197.11016 O Satyaki, you also go away, surrounded by the Vrishnis and the Andhakas.
Mbh.7.198.11132 You may unite the forces of the Pandavas and those of the Vrishnis together, but I shall still slay the Somakas.
Mbh.8.8.242 Relying on the might of his own arms, he always disregarded Keshava of unfading glory, and Dhananjaya, and the Vrishnis, and all other foes!
Mbh.8.17.724 Knowing that victory is ever with the chief of the Vrishnis and with Dhananjaya, that foremost one of Angirasa's race, endued with great activity, entered the army of Karna, deprived of hope and with shafts and weapons almost exhausted.
Mbh.8.73.4423 The bull-necked Abhimanyu, that spreader of the fame of both the Kurus and the Vrishnis, deprived steeds also of their riders and foot-soldiers of weapons and life.
Mbh.8.96.6145 Nakula, and Sahadeva, and Vrikodara the son of Pandu, and Satyaki, O king, that foremost of car-warriors among the Vrishnis, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Shikhandi, and others among the Pandus, the Pancalas, and the Srinjayas, worshipped the son of Kunti at the slaughter of the Suta's son.
Mbh.9.33.2364 SECTION Janamejaya said, On the eve of the great battle between the Kurus and the Pandus, the lord Rama, with Keshava's leave, had gone away from Dwaraka accompanied by many of the Vrishnis.
Mbh.9.58.4206 The Pancalas with the Vrishnis, as also the Pandavas, O monarch, became rather cheerless after Rama had set out for Dwaravati.
Mbh.10.12.846 Then, O chief of the Kurus, while you were living in the woods, O Bharata, he came to Dvaraka and took up his abode there, worshipped by the Vrishnis.
Mbh.11.16.712 Many, whom bards well-trained to their work formerly used, with their hymns and eulogies of grave import, to delight every morning, are now surrounded by fair ladies stricken with grief and weeping and crying around them in woe, O tiger of Vrishnis race!
Mbh.11.17.740 Addressing Hrishikesha who stood near, she said, On the eve of this battle, O puissant one, that has exterminated this race, this foremost of kings, O thou of Vrishnis race, said unto me, In this internecine battle, O mother, wish me victory
Mbh.11.18.785 Our acts, righteous or unrighteous, cannot go for nothing, O thou of Vrishnis race!
Mbh.11.25.1050 Vaishampayana continued, Hearing these words, the high-souled Vasudeva, addressing the venerable Gandhari, said unto her these words, with a faint smile, There is none in the world, save myself, that is capable of exterminating the Vrishnis.
Mbh.11.25.1054 The Vrishnis are incapable of being slain by others, be they human beings or gods or Danavas.
Mbh.12.7.208 Sighing repeatedly, he addressed Arjuna, saying, If, O Arjuna, we had led a life of mendicancy in the cities of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas, then this miserable end would not have been ours in consequence of having exterminated our kinsmen.
Mbh.12.33.1732 Reproaching the Pandavas and the Vrishnis as cruel murderers, those ladies, with emaciated features and plunged in grief, will throw themselves on the earth!
Mbh.12.54.2894 Let the son of Pandu, that royal sage of virtuous and great soul, upon whose birth all the Vrishnis were filled with joy, question me.
Mbh.12.80.4508 Many others among the Andhakas and the Vrishnis are possessed of great prosperity and might, and during courage and constant perseverance.
Mbh.12.80.4534 Take up this great weight of governing the Vrishnis and bear it on thy shoulders.
Mbh.12.80.4537 From disunion destruction will spring and overtake all the Bhojas and the Vrishnis.
Mbh.12.80.4539 Do thou act in such a manner that the Bhojas and the Vrishnis may not meet with destruction.
Mbh.12.80.4544 The Yadavas, the Kukuras, the Bhojas, the Andhakas, and the Vrishnis, are all dependent on thee even as all the worlds and all the regents of those worlds, O mighty-armed one!
Mbh.13.31.3951 They who behave as they should towards their mothers and fathers and preceptors and other seniors even as thou, O tiger among the Vrishnis, dost behave, succeed in crossing all calamities and obstacles, Having said these words, the celestial Rishi ceased speaking'
Mbh.14.52.2335 Having seen the Anarttas, and thy sire, O mighty-armed one, and the Vrishnis, thou wilt come back to my horse-sacrifice, O sinless one.
Mbh.14.59.2739 He then took his seat with all the Vrishnis sitting around him.
Mbh.14.60.2788 Vaisampayana continued, The Vrishnis, as they heard, O king, that dreadful account became filled with grief and sorrow and pain'
Mbh.14.66.2963 SECTION LXVI Vaisampayana said, Meanwhile, Vasudeva of great energy accompanied by the Vrishnis, came to the city called after the elephant.
Mbh.14.66.2996 Taking up his residence with the Vrishnis and Andhakas, he will obtain from them the science of arms, indeed, diverse wonderful weapons and the whole of the science of politics and morality.
Mbh.14.71.3122 The Pandavas then, uniting with the Vrishnis according to the usual formalities, together entered, O king, the city named after the elephant.
Mbh.14.83.3726 Then the ruler of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas, issuing out of his palace, with Vasudeva, the maternal uncle of Arjuna, in his company, cheerfully met the Kuru hero and received him with due rites.
Mbh.14.86.3831 The foremost of all men, viz, Govinda, came there, accompanied by the Vrishnis, and with Valadeva in the van.
Mbh.14.86.3845 Thus addressed by king Yudhishthira the just, the lord of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas, that foremost of eloquent men, said these words unto that monarch of righteous soul, My agent, recollecting the words of Partha, reported them thus to me, O great king, Yudhishthira, O Krishna, should be told these words of mine when the time comes.
Mbh.14.87.3877 Thus answered by Krishna of great intelligence, that foremost of men, viz, king Yudhishthira, said unto the chief of the Vrishnis that it was even so.
Mbh.15.36.1491 Only the tribes of the Vrishnis are all that remain, Vasudeva having upheld them.
Mbh.15.36.1492 Beholding only the Vrishnis I wish to live.
Mbh.16.1.16 A little while after, the Kuru king Yudhishthira heard of the wholesale carnage of the Vrishnis in consequence of the iron bolt.
Mbh.16.1.18 Meeting with one another, they became greatly distressed upon hearing that the Vrishnis had met with destruction through the Brahmanas rod of chastisement.
Mbh.16.1.23 Janamejaya said: Indeed, O holy one, how was it that the Andhakas along with Vrishnis, and those great car-warriors, the Bhojas, met with destruction in the very sight of Vasudeva
Mbh.16.1.24 Vaishampayana continued: When the thirty-sixth year was reached after the great battle a great calamity overtook the Vrishnis.
Mbh.16.1.26 Janamejaya said: Cursed by whom did those heroes, the Vrishnis, the Andhakas, and the Bhojas, met with destruction?
Mbh.16.1.31 Hear now, O king, what those ascetics, attempted to be thus deceived, said: This heir of Vasudeva, by name Samva, will bring forth a fierce iron bolt for the destruction of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas.
Mbh.16.1.36 The slayer of Madhu, informed of what had taken place, summoned all the Vrishnis and told them of it.
Mbh.16.1.40 When the next day came, Samva actually brought forth an iron bolt through which all the individuals in the race of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas became consumed into ashes.
Mbh.16.1.41 Indeed, for the destruction of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas, Samva brought forth, through that curse, a fierce iron bolt that looked like a gigantic messenger of death.
Mbh.16.1.45 At the command of Ahuka, of Janarddana, of Rama, and of the high-souled Vabhru, it was, again, proclaimed throughout the city that from that day, among all the Vrishnis and the Andhakas no one should manufacture wines and intoxicating spirits of any kind, and that whoever would secretly manufacture wines and spirits should be impaled alive with all his kinsmen.
Mbh.16.2.47 SECTION Vaishampayana said: While the Vrishnis and the Andhakas were thus endeavouring to avoid the impending calamity, the embodied form of Time death every day wandered about their houses.
Mbh.16.2.50 Sometimes he was seen by the Vrishnis as he peered into their houses.
Mbh.16.2.51 The mighty bowmen among the Vrishnis shot hundreds and thousands of shafts at him, but none of these succeeded in piercing him, for he was none else than the Destroyer of all creatures.
Mbh.16.2.52 Day by day strong winds blew, and many were the evil omens that arose, awful and foreboding the destruction of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas.
Mbh.16.2.56 Sarikas chirped, sitting within the houses of the Vrishnis.
Mbh.16.2.60 Pigeons were seen to always disport in the houses of the Vrishnis.
Mbh.16.2.63 The Vrishnis, committing sinful acts, were not seen to feel any shame.
Mbh.16.2.81 That chastiser of foes commanded the Vrishnis to make a pilgrimage to some sacred water.
Mbh.16.2.82 The messengers forthwith proclaimed at the command of Keshava that the Vrishnis should make a journey to the sea-coast for bathing in the sacred waters of the ocean
Mbh.16.3.86 In the very sight of the Vrishnis, the discus of Krishna, given by Agni, made of iron and having its nave composed of hardest adamant, ascended into the firmament.
Mbh.16.3.89 The two great standards of Krishnas car and Valadevas car, that with the device of Garuda and that bearing the device of the palmyra, which were reverently worshipped by those two heroes, were taken away by Apsaras who, day and night, called upon the Vrishnis and the Andhakas to set out on a pilgrimage to some sacred water.
Mbh.16.3.90 When these omens were seen and heard, those foremost of men, the mighty car-warriors of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas, became desirous of setting out, with their whole families, on a pilgrimage to some sacred water.
Mbh.16.3.92 The troops of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas, blazing with beauty and endued with fierce energy, then set out from the city on cars and steeds and elephants.
Mbh.16.3.95 Krishna, with joined hands, saluted Uddhava, and seeing him bent on departing from the world and knowing that the destructions of the Vrishnis was at hand, did not feel any disposition to prevent him.
Mbh.16.3.96 The mighty car-warriors among the Vrishnis and the Andhakas, whose hour had come, then saw Uddhava proceed on his great journey, filling the whole welkin with his splendour.
Mbh.16.3.97 The Vrishnis, mixing with wine the food that had been cooked for high-souled Brahmanas, gave it away unto monkeys and apes.
Mbh.16.3.123 Then the Andhakas and the Bhojas, the Saineyas and the Vrishnis, urged by Time, struck one another in that fearful melee.
Mbh.16.3.137 The wielder of Sarnga and the discus and the mace then exterminated the Vrishnis and the Andhakas.
Mbh.16.4.172 The high-souled one, thinking of the destruction of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas, as also of the previous slaughter of the Kurus, concluded that the hour for his own departure from the world had come.
Mbh.16.5.187 SECTION Vaishampayana said: Meanwhile Daruka, going to the Kurus and seeing those mighty car-warriors, the son of Pritha, informed them of how the Vrishnis had slain one another with iron bolts.
Mbh.16.5.188 Hearing that the Vrishnis along with the Bhojas and Andhakas and Kukuras had all been slain, the Pandavas, burning with grief, became highly agitated.
Mbh.16.5.191 Proceeding to the city of the Vrishnis with Daruka in his company, O puissant king, that hero beheld that the city of Dwaraka looked like a woman bereft of her husband.
Mbh.16.5.197 The Dwaraka river had the Vrishnis and the Andhakas for its water, steeds for its fishes, cars for its rafts, the sound of musical instruments and the rattle of cars for its waves, houses and mansions and public squares for its lakes.
Mbh.16.6.217 Through the fault of those two heroes who were thy dear disciples and who were much regarded by thee, also, O Partha, the Vrishnis have been destroyed.
Mbh.16.6.218 Those two who were regarded as Atirathas amongst the foremost of the Vrishnis, and referring to whom in course of conversation thou wert wont to indulge in pride, and who, O chief of Kurus race, were ever dear to Krishna himselfalas, those two, O Dhananjaya, have been the chief causes of the destruction of the Vrishnis!
Mbh.16.6.232 Tell him what has occurred, this great carnage of the Vrishnis.
Mbh.16.7.247 SECTION Vaishampayana said: That scorcher of foes, Vibhatsu, thus addressed by his maternal uncle, replied, with great cheerlessness of heart, unto Vasudeva who was equally cheerless, saying, O uncle, I am unable to look at this Earth when she is reft of that hero of Vrishnis race and those my other kinsmen.
Mbh.16.7.256 Then Partha, more grieved than they, addressed those grieving and cheerless citizens and officers who were more dead than alive, and said these words that were well suited to the occasion: I shall take away with me the remnants of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas.
Mbh.16.7.280 Phalguna, who was careful in observing every duty, having caused this duty to be performed, proceeded, O chief of Bharatas race, next to the place where the Vrishnis were slaughtered.
Mbh.16.7.289 The servants of the Vrishnis, their horsemen, and their car-warriors too, followed the procession.
Mbh.16.7.296 That foremost of car-warriors, that conqueror of hostile towns, the son of Pritha, escorted this vast procession of Vrishnis, which still abounded with wealth, and which looked like a veritable ocean.
Mbh.16.7.307 The warriors of the Vrishnis are without energy.
Mbh.16.7.308 Then those robbers, numbering by thousands, and armed with clubs, rushed towards the procession of the Vrishnis, desirous of plunder.
Mbh.16.7.323 The puissant Arjuna, supported by the servants of the Vrishnis, struck the robbers with shafts sped from Gandiva.
Mbh.16.7.330 Those Mlecchas, however, O Janamejaya, in the very sight of Partha, retreated, taking away with them many foremost ladies of the Vrishnis and Andhakas.
Mbh.16.7.336 Thus bringing with him the remnant of the Vrishnis.
Mbh.16.8.414 Entering it, the hero approached Yudhishthira and informed him of all that had taken place with reference to the Vrishnis
Mbh.17.1.5 Vaishampayana said: Having heard the particulars of the great slaughter of the Vrishnis, the Kaurava king set his heart on leaving the world.
Mbh.17.1.39 Ascertaining the intentions of Yudhishthira and seeing the destruction of the Vrishnis, no other course of action could please them then.
Mbh.18.4.218 Among the tribes of the Saddhyas, the gods, the Viswedevas, and the Maruts, behold, O king of kings, the mighty car-warriors of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas, viz, those heroes having Satyaki for their first, and those mighty ones among the Bhojas.
