MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.1.17 We are desirous of hearing that history also called Bharata, the holy composition of the wonderful Vyasa, which dispelleth the fear of evil, just as it was cheerfully recited by the Rishi Vaisampayana, under the direction of Dwaipayana himself, at the snake-sacrifice of Raja Janamejaya'
Mbh.1.1.18 Sauti then said, Having bowed down to the primordial being Isana, to whom multitudes make offerings, and who is adored by the multitude; who is the true incorruptible one, Brahma, perceptible, imperceptible, eternal; who is both a non-existing and an existing-non-existing being; who is the universe and also distinct from the existing and non-existing universe; who is the creator of high and low; the ancient, exalted, inexhaustible one; who is Vishnu, beneficent and the beneficence itself, worthy of all preference, pure and immaculate; who is Hari, the ruler of the faculties, the guide of all things moveable and immoveable; I will declare the sacred thoughts of the illustrious sage Vyasa, of marvellous deeds and worshipped here by all.
Mbh.1.1.41 The mystery which is threefold, the Vedas, Yoga, and Vijnana Dharma, Artha, and Kama, also various books upon the subject of Dharma, Artha, and Kama; also rules for the conduct of mankind; also histories and discourses with various srutis; all of which having been seen by the Rishi Vyasa are here in due order mentioned as a specimen of the book.
Mbh.1.1.42 The Rishi Vyasa published this mass of knowledge in both a detailed and an abridged form.
Mbh.1.1.47 The son of Satyavati having, by penance and meditation, analysed the eternal Veda, afterwards composed this holy history, when that learned Brahmarshi of strict vows, the noble Dwaipayana Vyasa, offspring of Parasara, had finished this greatest of narrations, he began to consider how he might teach it to his disciples.
Mbh.1.1.49 And when Vyasa, surrounded by all the tribes of Munis, saw him, he was surprised; and, standing with joined palms, he bowed and ordered a seat to be brought.
Mbh.1.1.50 And Vyasa having gone round him who is called Hiranyagarbha seated on that distinguished seat stood near it; and being commanded by Brahma Parameshthi, he sat down near the seat, full of affection and smiling in joy.
Mbh.1.1.51 Then the greatly glorious Vyasa, addressing Brahma Parameshthi, said, O divine Brahma, by me a poem hath been composed which is greatly respected.
Mbh.1.1.60 Sauti said, Brahma having thus spoken to Vyasa, retired to his own abode.
Mbh.1.1.61 Then Vyasa began to call to mind Ganesa.
Mbh.1.1.62 And Ganesa, obviator of obstacles, ready to fulfil the desires of his votaries, was no sooner thought of, than he repaired to the place where Vyasa was seated.
Mbh.1.1.63 And when he had been saluted, and was seated, Vyasa addressed him thus, O guide of the Ganas!
Mbh.1.1.66 And Vyasa said unto that divinity, Wherever there be anything thou dost not comprehend, cease to continue writing'
Mbh.1.1.68 proceeded to write; and Vyasa began; and by way of diversion, he knit the knots of composition exceeding close; by doing which, he dictated this work according to his engagement.
Mbh.1.1.71 Even the omniscient Ganesa took a moment to consider; while Vyasa, however, continued to compose other verses in great abundance.
Mbh.1.1.80 It was not till after these were born, grown up, and departed on the supreme journey, that the great Rishi Vyasa published the Bharata in this region of mankind; when being solicited by Janamejaya and thousands of Brahmanas, he instructed his disciple Vaisampayana, who was seated near him; and he, sitting together with the Sadasyas, recited the Bharata, during the intervals of the ceremonies of the sacrifice, being repeatedly urged to proceed.
Mbh.1.1.81 Vyasa hath fully represented the greatness of the house of Kuru, the virtuous principles of Gandhari, the wisdom of Vidura, and the constancy of Kunti.
Mbh.1.1.83 Vyasa executed the compilation of the Bharata, exclusive of the episodes originally in twenty-four thousand verses; and so much only is called by the learned as the Bharata.
Mbh.1.1.88 Narada recited them to the Devas, Devala to the Pitris, and Suka published them to the Gandharvas, Yakshas, and Rakshasas: and in this world they were recited by Vaisampayana, one of the disciples of Vyasa, a man of just principles and the first among all those acquainted with the Vedas.
Mbh.1.1.204 Thou hast heard, O Raja, of the greatly powerful men of vast exertions, spoken of by Vyasa and the wise Narada; men born of great royal families, resplendent with worthy qualities, versed in the science of celestial arms, and in glory emblems of Indra; men who having conquered the world by justice and performed sacrifices with fit offerings to the Brahmanas, obtained renown in this world and at last succumbed to the sway of time.
Mbh.1.1.242 The learned man who recites to other this Veda of Vyasa reapeth advantage.
Mbh.1.2.284 O Saunaka, this best of narrations called Bharata which has begun to be repeated at thy sacrifice, was formerly repeated at the sacrifice of Janamejaya by an intelligent disciple of Vyasa.
Mbh.1.2.363 The high-souled Vyasa composed these hundred parvas of which the above is only an abridgement: having distributed them into eighteen, the son of Suta recited them consecutively in the forest of Naimisha as follows: In the Adi parva are contained Paushya, Pauloma, Astika, Adivansavatara, Samva, the burning of the house of lac, the slaying of Hidimba, the destruction of the Asura Vaka, Chitraratha, the Swayamvara of Draupadi, her marriage after the overthrow of rivals in war, the arrival of Vidura, the restoration, Arjuna's exile, the abduction of Subhadra, the gift and receipt of the marriage dower, the burning of the Khandava forest, and the meeting with the Asura-architect Maya.
Mbh.1.2.370 The birth of Ghatotkacha; the meeting of the Pandavas with Vyasa and in accordance with his advice their stay in disguise in the house of a Brahmana in the city of Ekachakra; the destruction of the Asura Vaka, and the amazement of the populace at the sight; the extra-ordinary births of Krishna and Dhrishtadyumna; the departure of the Pandavas for Panchala in obedience to the injunction of Vyasa, and moved equally by the desire of winning the hand of Draupadi on learning the tidings of the Swayamvara from the lips of a Brahmana; victory of Arjuna over a Gandharva, called Angaraparna, on the banks of the Bhagirathi, his contraction of friendship with his adversary, and his hearing from the Gandharva the history of Tapati, Vasishtha and Aurva.
Mbh.1.2.375 This parva is divided by Vyasa into two hundred and twenty-seven chapters.
Mbh.1.2.380 These constitute what has been called by the great Vyasa the Sabha Parva.
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.1.59.2874 Sauti said, I shall recite to thee from the beginning of that great and excellent history called the Mahabharata composed by Vyasa.

Mbh.1.61.2901 SECTION LXI Adivansavatarana Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Bowing down in the first place to my preceptor with the eight parts of my body touching the ground, with devotion and reverence, and with all my heart, worshipping the whole assembly of Brahmanas and other learned persons, I shall recite in full what I have heard from the high-souled and great Rishi Vyasa, the first of intelligent men in the three worlds.
Mbh.1.62.2979 I shall repeat the whole of the composition in full, of the illustrious and great Rishi Vyasa of immeasurable mental power, and worshipped in all the worlds.
Mbh.1.62.2993 This history is the high and sacred science of Dharma, Artha, and also of Moksha; it hath been so said by Vyasa himself of mind that is immeasurable.
Mbh.1.62.3015 He who reciteth this holy narration composed by Krishna Vyasa for the hearing of others, and they who hear it, in whatever state he or they may be, can never be affected by the fruit of deeds, good or bad.
Mbh.1.63.3141 And it was thus that Vyasa was born of Satyavati through Parasara.
Mbh.1.63.3144 And for this he came to be called Vyasa the arranger or compiler.
Mbh.1.95.5362 This holy history of Bharata hath been composed by the sacred and illustrious Vyasa.
Mbh.1.105.5911 That illustrious Rishi having by his ascetic power divided the Vedas into four parts hath come to be called on earth by the name of Vyasa the divider or arranger, and for his dark colour, Krishna the dark.
Mbh.1.105.5921 And her first son, the great Vyasa, beholding her weeping, washed her with cool water, and bowing unto her, said, I have come, O mother, to fulfil thy wishes.
Mbh.1.105.5938 Vyasa, hearing this, said, O Satyavati, thou knowest what virtue is both in respect of this life and the other.
Mbh.1.105.5951 Vyasa replied, If I am to give unto my brother children so unseasonably, then let the ladies bear my ugliness.
Mbh.1.105.5954 Vaisampayana continued, Having spoken thus unto Satyavati, Vyasa of great energy addressed her and said, Let the princess of Kosala clad in clean attire and checked with ornaments wait for me in her bed-chamber'
Mbh.1.106.5971 And when Vyasa came out, he was met by his mother, who asked him, Shall the princess have an accomplished son'
Mbh.1.106.5978 Saying, So be it' Vyasa went away.
Mbh.1.106.5980 Soon after Satyavati, O chastiser of foes, summoned Vyasa, after having secured the assent of her daughter-in-law.
Mbh.1.106.5981 Vyasa came according to his promise, and approached, as before, the second wife of his brother.
Mbh.1.106.5982 And Ambalika beholding the Rishi, became pale with fear And, O Bharata, beholding her so afflicted and pale with fear, Vyasa addressed her and said, Because thou hast been pale with fear at the sight of my grim visage, therefore, thy child shall be pale in complexion.
Mbh.1.106.5991 Some time after, when the oldest of Vichitravirya's widows again had her monthly season, she was solicited by Satyavati to approach Vyasa once again.
Mbh.1.106.5994 And when the Vyasa arrived, the maid rose up and saluted him.
Mbh.1.115.6239 Vyasa then said, Daughter of Suvala, it is even so.
Mbh.1.115.6247 The illustrious Vyasa then said unto the daughter of Suvala that she should open the covers of the pots after full two years.
Mbh.1.116.6277 The great Rishi Vyasa of immeasurable energy said unto the daughter of the king of Gandhara that she would become the mother of a hundred sons.
Mbh.1.128.6827 When the Sraddha had been celebrated in the manner mentioned above, the venerable Vyasa, seeing all the subjects sunk in grief, said one day to his mother Satyavati, Mother, our days of happiness have gone by and days of calamity have succeeded.
Mbh.1.128.6835 Acquiescing in the words of Vyasa, Satyavati entered the inner apartments and addressed her daughter-in-law, saying, O Ambika, I hear that in consequence of the deeds of your grandsons, this Bharata dynasty and its subjects will perish.
Mbh.1.136.7282 SECTION CXXXVI Sambhava Parva continued Vaisampayana said, O thou of Bharata's race, beholding the sons of Dhritarashtra and Pandu accomplished in arms, Drona, O monarch, addressed king Dhritarashtra, in the presence of Kripa, Somadatta, Valhika, the wise son of Ganga Bhishma, Vyasa, and Vidura, and said, O best of Kuru kings, thy children have completed their education.
Mbh.1.158.8279 And the Pandavas, conversant with the science of morals, met, in course of their wanderings their grandfather Vyasa.
Mbh.1.158.8281 Vyasa then said, Ye bulls of Bharata's race, I knew beforehand of this affliction of yours consisting in your deceitful exile by the son of Dhritarashtra.
Mbh.1.158.8292 Vaisampayana continued, Vyasa, the son of Satyavati, thus comforting the Pandavas, led them into the town of Ekachakra.
Mbh.1.158.8299 Vaisampayana continued, With these words Vyasa introduced them into the dwelling of a Brahmana.
Mbh.1.158.8304 And the illustrious master, the Rishi Vyasa, then went away to the region whence he had come
Mbh.1.164.8520 O scion of Puru's race, the illustrious Vyasa of wisdom acquired by hard ascetic toil told me so in bygone days.
Mbh.1.171.8714 Vaisampayana said, While the illustrious Pandavas were living disguised in the abode of the Brahmana, Vyasa, the son of Satyavati, once went to see them.
Mbh.1.172.8739 SECTION CLXXII Chaitraratha Parva continued Vaisampayana said, After Vyasa had gone away, those bulls among men, the Pandavas, saluted the Brahmana and bade him farewell, and proceeded towards Panchala with joyous hearts and with their mother walking before them.
Mbh.1.191.9572 And she asked herself, Could the illustrious Vyasa himself who had directed my sons to come to Panchala have been guided by perverse intelligence'
Mbh.1.196.9771 Just at that time, however, the island-born Vyasa, O monarch, came there in course of his wanderings
Mbh.1.197.9778 Hearing these words Vyasa replied, This practice, O king, being opposed to usage and the Vedas, hath become obsolete.
Mbh.1.197.9802 When they had all finished speaking, Vyasa said, O amiable one, how shall thou be saved from the consequence of untruth?
Mbh.1.197.9807 Vaisampayana continued, Then the illustrious Vyasa, the master Dwaipayana, rose, and taking hold of Drupada's hand led him to a private apartment.
Mbh.1.197.9808 The Pandavas and Kunti and Dhrishtadyumna of Prishata's race sat there, waiting for the return of Vyasa and Drupada.
Mbh.1.198.9810 SECTION CLXLIX Vaivahika Parva continued Vaisampayana said, Vyasa continued, In days of yore, the celestials had once commenced a grand sacrifice in the forest of Naimisha.
Mbh.1.198.9827 Vyasa continued, Hearing these words of the first-born deity, the celestials returned to the spot where the grand sacrifice was being performed.
Mbh.1.198.9838 Vyasa continued, The woman thereupon answered, O Sakra, thou mayest know who I am and why, unfortunate that I am, I weep, if only, O chief of the celestials, thou comest with me as I lead the way.
Mbh.1.198.9864 Vyasa continued, Hearing these words of the former Indras, the wielder of the thunderbolt once more addressed that foremost of gods, saying, Instead of going myself, I shall, with a portion of my energy, create from myself a person for the accomplishment of the task thou assignest to form the fifth among these'
Mbh.1.198.9877 Vyasa continued, Thus, O king, they who have been born as the Pandavas are none else than those Indras of old.
Mbh.1.198.9882 Vaisampayana continued, Saying this, that sacred Brahmana Vyasa of generous deeds, by means of his ascetic power, granted celestial sight unto the king.
Mbh.1.198.9900 Vyasa continued, O Drupada, this thy daughter of celestial beauty is that maiden.
Mbh.1.199.9917 Vaisampayana continued, Then the illustrious Vyasa, addressing Yudhishthira the just, said, This day is an auspicious day, O son of Pandu!
Mbh.1.199.9920 When Vyasa had said so, king Yajnasena and his son made preparations for the wedding.
Mbh.2.4.117 Upon the seats in that palace sat, along with the Pandavas, Rishis and kings that came from various countries, viz, Asita and Devala, Satya, Sarpamali and Mahasira; Arvavasu, Sumitra, Maitreya, Sunaka and Vali; Vaka, Dalvya, Sthulasira, Krishna-Dwaipayana, and Suka Sumanta, Jaimini, Paila, and the disciples of Vyasa, viz, ourselves; Tittiri, Yajanavalkya, and Lomaharshana with his son; Apsuhomya, Dhaumya, Animandavya; and Kausika; Damoshnisha and Traivali, Parnada, and Varayanuka, Maunjayana, Vayubhaksha, Parasarya, and Sarika; Valivaka, Silivaka, Satyapala, and Krita-srama; Jatukarna, and Sikhavat.
Mbh.2.45.1845 SECTION XLV Dyuta Parva Vaisampayana said, when that foremost of sacrifices, the Rajasuya so difficult of accomplishment, was completed, Vyasa surrounded by his disciples presented himself before Yudhishthira.
Mbh.2.45.1849 And after the king had taken his seat surrounded by his brothers, the illustrious Vyasa, truthful in speech said, O son of Kunti, thou growest from good fortune.
Mbh.2.45.1858 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words of the king, the exalted son of Parasara, the island-born Vyasa of dark hue, spoke these words, For thirteen years, O king, those portents will bear mighty consequences ending in destruction, O king of kings, of all the Kshatriyas.
Mbh.2.45.1868 Vaisampayana continued, Having said this, the illustrious and island-born Vyasa of dark hue, accompanied by his disciples ever following the dictates of the Vedas, proceeded towards Kailasa.
Mbh.2.49.2048 Santi said, Thus addressed by the king, the disciple of Vyasa, endued with great energy and conversant with the entire Vedas, narrated everything that had happened
Mbh.2.52.2180 Then Dhaumya and Vyasa, of great ascetic merit, with Narada and Asita's son Devala, standing before performed the ceremony of sprinkling the sacred water over the king.
Mbh.3.8.415 SECTION VIII Vyasa said, O wise Dhritarashtra, hear what I say!
Mbh.3.9.436 Vyasa said, O king, O son of Vichitravirya, what thou sayest is true!
Mbh.3.9.458 Vyasa continued, Then Indra having heard these words of Suravi, was much surprised, and O thou of the Kuru race, he became convinced that a son is dearer than one's life!
Mbh.3.10.472 Vyasa said, O king, after having seen the Pandava brothers, here cometh the holy Rishi Maitreya, with the desire of seeing us.
Mbh.3.10.475 Vaisampayana continued, Saying this, Vyasa departed, and Maitreya made his appearance.
Mbh.3.12.608 Vyasa hath told me that thou art the cause of the creation and its course!
Mbh.3.12.719 In the matter of this their journey, Vyasa ever engaged in their welfare had become their counsellor.
Mbh.3.29.1408 And Somadatta and Yuyutshu and Drona's son and our grandsire Vyasa, every one of them speaketh always of peace.
Mbh.3.31.1492 Vyasa, and Vasistha and Maitreya, and Narada and Lomasa, and Suka, and other Rishis have all, by virtue alone, become of pure soul!
Mbh.3.36.1880 And while the sons of Pandu were thus conversing with each other, there came to that spot the great ascetic Vyasa, the son of Satyavati.
Mbh.3.36.1895 Vaisampayana continued, Having addressed him thus, that illustrious and exalted ascetic Vyasa, of great wisdom, acquired with the mysteries of the world, then imparted unto the willing Yudhishthira the just, who had meanwhile purified himself, that foremost of sciences.
Mbh.3.36.1896 And bidding farewell unto the son of Kunti, Vyasa disappeared then and there.
Mbh.3.36.1898 Glad of the advice given him by Vyasa, the son of Kunti then, leaving the wood Dwaitavana went to the forest of Kamyaka on the banks of the Saraswati.
Mbh.3.37.1904 SECTION XXXVII Vaisampayana said, After some time, Yudhishthira the just, remembering the command of the Muni Vyasa and calling unto himself that bull among men, Arjuna, possessed of great wisdom, addressed him in private.
Mbh.3.83.4220 There, O tiger among kings, it hath been heard by us that the high-souled Vyasa, for the sake of the Brahmanas, hath mixed all the tirthas.
Mbh.3.83.4226 One should next proceed to Vyasasthali where Vyasa of great intelligence, burning with grief for his son had resolved to cast off his body but was cheered again by the gods.
Mbh.3.83.4227 Proceeding to that spot of Vyasa, one obtaineth the merit of a thousand kine.
Mbh.3.83.4297 It hath been sung by Sanatkumara and by the high-souled Vyasa, and it is in the Vedas also, that one should, O king, go to Prithudaka, with subdued soul.
Mbh.3.85.4733 Those foremost of Rishis, Valmiki, and Kasyapa, and Atreya, and Kundajathara, and Viswamitra, and Gautama, and Asita, and Devala, and Markandeya, and Galava, and Bharadwaja, and Vasishtha, and the Muni Uddalaka, and Saunaka with his son, and Vyasa, that best of ascetics, and Durvasas, that foremost of Munis, and Javali of great austerities, all these illustrious Rishis endued with wealth of asceticism, are staying in expectation of thee.
Mbh.3.86.4747 I know them both, Krishna and Arjuna, those destroyers of enemies, O Brahmana, endued with prowess, even as the puissant Vyasa knoweth them.
Mbh.3.93.4980 Just at this time, the blessed Vyasa, as also Parvata and Narada, all endued with high intelligence, came to Kamyaka for seeing the son of Pandu.
Mbh.3.257.12597 After a little while, that mighty ascetic, Vyasa, the son of Satyavati, came there to see the Pandavas.
Mbh.3.257.12599 And having gratified Vyasa by bowing down unto him, Pandu's son of subdued senses, after the Rishi had been seated, sat down before him, desirous of listening to him.
Mbh.3.257.12618 Vyasa said, There is nothing, O child, in this world harder to practise than charity.
Mbh.3.258.12632 Vyasa said, There lived, O king, in Kurukshetra a virtuous man sage, Mudgala by name.
Mbh.3.259.12736 Vyasa continued, Having heard this speech, Mudgala began to reflect in his mind.
Mbh.3.259.12757 Vaisampayana continued Having said this to Pandu's son, the worshipful Vyasa went back to his hermitage for the purpose of performing austerities
Mbh.5.51.2905 As regards form and might, even such was he in his very boyhood, as I truly heard long before from the lips of Vyasa!
Mbh.5.67.3446 Bring thou hither, O Ajamida, thy father Vyasa of high vows and thy queen Gandhari.
Mbh.5.67.3449 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed, Dhritarashtra caused both Gandhari and Vyasa to be brought there.
Mbh.5.69.3489 Vyasa said, Listen to me, O king!
Mbh.5.147.6611 Having begged my mother and the people thus, I then solicited the great sage Vyasa for begetting children upon the wives of my brother.
Mbh.5.189.8490 I then, O king, humbly represented to Narada as also to Vyasa all that the maiden did.
Mbh.6.2.42 SECTION II Vaisampayana said, Seeing then the two armies standing on the east and the west for the fierce battle that was impending, the holy Rishi Vyasa, the son of Satyavati, that foremost of all persons acquainted with the Vedas, that grandsire of the Bharatas, conversant with the past, the present, and the future, and beholding everything as if it were present before his eyes, said these words in private unto the royal son of Vichitravirya who was then distressed and giving way to sorrow, reflecting on the evil policy of his sons.
Mbh.6.2.43 Vyasa said, O king, thy sons and the other monarchs have their hour arrived
Mbh.6.2.52 Upon his not wishing to see the battle but wishing to hear of it, Vyasa, that lord of boons, gave a boon to Sanjaya.
Mbh.6.3.94 SECTION III Vyasa said, Asses are taking births in kine.
Mbh.6.3.175 Vaisampayana continued, O best of kings, thus addressed by his son Dhritarashtra, that prince of poets, the Muni Vyasa concentrated his mind in supreme Yoga.
Mbh.6.3.176 Having contemplated for only a short space of time, Vyasa once more said, Without doubt, O king of kings, it is Time that destroyeth the universe.
Mbh.6.3.208 Vyasa said, O royal son of Vichitravirya, tell me freely what is in thy mind.
Mbh.6.3.211 Vyasa said, The sacred fire assumes a cheerful radiance.
Mbh.6.4.249 SECTION IV Vaisampayana said, Having said these words unto Dhritarashtra, Vyasa took his departure.
Mbh.6.4.258 Through the potency of that regenerate Rishi Vyasa of immeasurable energy, thou art endued with the lamp of celestial perception and the eye of knowledge.
Mbh.6.17.836 SECTION XVII Sanjaya said, Just as the holy Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa had said, in that very manner the kings of the Earth, mustered together, came to the encounter.
Mbh.6.23.1049 I have known all this through the grace of Vyasa endued with great wisdom.
Mbh.6.25.1116 Here ends the first lesson entitled Survey of Forces in the dialogue between Krishna and Arjuna of the Bhagavadgita, the essence of religion, the knowledge of Brahma, and the system of Yoga, comprised within the Bhishma Parva of the Mahabharata of Vyasa containing one hundred thousand verses
Mbh.6.34.1580 All the Rishis proclaim thee thus, and also the celestial Rishi Narada; and Asita, Devala, and Vyasa; thyself also tellest me so.
Mbh.6.34.1620 I am even Vyasa among the ascetics, and Usanas among seers.
Mbh.6.49.2552 Always forbidden by me, by Gandhari, by Vidura, by Rama the son of Jamadagni, and by the high-souled Vyasa also, the wicked-minded and sinful Duryodhana, with Dussasana, O Sanjaya, always following the counsels of Karna and Suvala's son, behaved maliciously towards the Pandavas.
Mbh.6.66.3649 And O thou that art well-versed in scriptures, I heard this from Rama, the son of Jamadagni, and Markandeya of great wisdom, and Vyasa and Narada also.
Mbh.7.50.2313 Sanjaya continued, The illustrious Vyasa, addressing Yudhishthira who was indulging in such lamentations and who was thus unmanned by an accession of sorrow, said these words'
Mbh.7.50.2314 Vyasa said, O Yudhishthira, O thou of great wisdom, O thou that art master of all branches of knowledge, persons like thee never suffer themselves to be stupefied by calamities.
Mbh.7.50.2335 Vyasa said, As regards the matter in hand, O king, this ancient story of what Narada had in days of old said unto Akampana is cited.
Mbh.7.52.2513 Vyasa continued, Hearing these words of grave import spoken by Narada, king Akampana, addressing his friend, said, O illustrious one, O foremost of Rishi, my grief is gone, and I am contented.
Mbh.7.53.2524 SECTION LIII Sanjaya said, Hearing of the origin of Death and her strange acts, king Yudhishthira, humbly addressing Vyasa, once more said these words unto him'
Mbh.7.53.2531 Vyasa said, There was a king of the name of Switya.
Mbh.7.69.2939 SECTION LXXI Vyasa said, Hearing this sacred history of sixteen kings, capable of enhancing the period of life of the listener, king Srinjaya remained silent without saying anything.
Mbh.7.69.2952 Vyasa said, Then the son of Srinjaya, of wonderful splendour, appeared, that child resembling the son of Kuvera himself, bestowed by the gratified Rishi on the bereaved father.
Mbh.7.69.2985 Having said this, the holy Vyasa disappeared then and there.
Mbh.7.69.2986 Upon the departure of that master of speech, that foremost of intelligent persons, viz, the holy Vyasa, whose colour was like that of the clouded sky, Yudhishthira, having derived consolation in consequence of what he had heard about the sacrificial merit and prosperity of these great monarchs of olden times, possessed of energy equal to that of the great Indra himself and all of whom had acquired wealth by righteous means, mentally applauded those illustrious persons and became freed from grief.
Mbh.7.78.3399 SECTION LXXX Sanjaya said, Kunti's son, Dhananjaya, of inconceivable prowess thinking of how to accomplish his vow, recollected the mantras given to him by Vyasa.
Mbh.7.181.9913 At that time, seeing Dharma's son, Yudhishthira, whose mind was afflicted by grief and who seemed to be scorched as if by fire, rush with speed from desire of slaying the Suta's son, Vyasa approached him and said these words
Mbh.7.181.9914 Vyasa said, By good luck, Phalguna liveth still although he had encountered Karna in battle.
Mbh.7.181.9931 Having said these words unto the son of Pandu, Vyasa made himself invisible there and then
Mbh.7.182.9932 SECTION CLXXXIV Drona-vadha Parva Sanjaya said, Thus addressed by Vyasa, the heroic king Yudhishthira the just refrained, O bull of Bharata's race, from himself seeking to slay Karna.
Mbh.7.198.11265 On his way he met Vyasa, the abode of Saraswati, the compiler of the Vedas, the habitation of those scriptures, unstained by sin, and of the hue of rain-charged cloud.
Mbh.7.198.11278 Vyasa said, O highly significant is this matter that thou enquirest of me from surprise.
Mbh.7.198.11308 Vyasa continued, The blue-throated God, of inconceivable soul, that wielder of Pinaka, that divine Lord ever praised by the Rishis, then gave boons unto Vasudeva who deserved them all.
Mbh.7.198.11334 Sanjaya continued, Hearing these words of Vyasa, Drona's son, that mighty car-warrior, bowed unto Rudra and regarded Kesava as worthy of the highest regards.
Mbh.7.199.11341 Sanjaya, said, After the rout of the Kuru army, upon the slaughter of that Atiratha, viz, Drona, by Prishata's son, Dhananjaya, the son of Kunti beholding a wonderful phenomenon in connection with his own victory, asked Vyasa, O bull of Bharata's race, who came thither in course of his wanderings, saying, O great Rishi, while I was engaged in slaying the foe in battle with showers of bright shafts, I continually beheld before me, proceeding in advance of my car, a person of blazing hue, as if endued with the effulgence of fire.
Mbh.7.199.11348 Vyasa said, Thou hast, O Arjuna, seen Sankara, that First cause from which have sprung the Prajapatis, that puissant Being endued with great energy, he that is the embodiment of heaven, earth and sky, the Divine Lord, the protector of the universe, the great Master, the giver of boons, called also Isana.
Mbh.7.199.11458 Vyasa continued, Hearing these words of the lotus-born Brahma, Maheswara became gratified.
Mbh.8.96.6126 Gifted with great intelligence, the master Krishna Dvaipayana, the highly blessed Vyasa, also hath repeatedly told me this celestial history.
Mbh.8.96.6169 These words of the great Rishi Vyasa can never the untrue!
Mbh.9.27.1856 Just at that juncture, the Island-born Krishna of great wisdom Vyasa, coming there, said, Let Sanjaya be dismissed alive!
Mbh.9.47.3512 There, in that tirtha situated on the bank of that river, all the gods with Vasava at their head, the Viswedevas, the Maruts, the Gandharvas, the Apsaras, the Island-born Vyasa, Suka, Krishna the slayer of Madhu, the Yakshas, the Rakshasas, and the Pisachas, O king, and diverse others, numbering by thousands, all crowned with ascetic success, always reside.
Mbh.9.47.3514 The island-born Vyasa also, of virtuous soul, O Bharata, having bathed in that tirtha, obtained great Yoga powers and attained to high success.
Mbh.9.61.4422 Janardana, embracing the feet of both Vyasa and Dhritarashtra, quietly saluted Gandhari also.
Mbh.9.61.4467 Rising up in haste after worshipping the feet of Vyasa bending his head, Keshava, O monarch, addressed Dhritarashtra, saying, I take my leave, O foremost one of Kuru's race!
Mbh.9.61.4475 After Vasudeva had departed, O king, Vyasa, that adored of the whole world, of inconceivable soul, began to comfort king Dhritarashtra.
Mbh.10.13.896 He beheld the high-souled and illustrious and dark-complexioned and island-born Vyasa sitting near the edge of the water in the midst of many rishis.
Mbh.10.14.916 Then the two great rishis, Narada, who is the soul of every creature, and the grandsire of all the Bharata princes Vyasa, beholding those two weapons scorching the three worlds, showed themselves there.
Mbh.10.15.949 Vyasa said, Pritha's son Dhananjaya, O child, was acquainted with the weapon called brahmashira.
Mbh.10.15.977 Vyasa said, Do then this.
Mbh.10.16.1002 Vyasa said, Since, disregarding us, thou hast perpetrated this exceedingly cruel act, and since thy behaviour is such although thou art a good brahmana by birth, therefore, those excellent words that Devaki's son has said, will, without doubt, be realised in thy case, an adopter as thou hast been of kshatriya usages
Mbh.11.1.42 Thy son, O Bharata, did not obey the words of Bhishma, the reverend chief of the Kurus, of Gandhari and Vidura, of Drona, O king, of Kripa the son of Sharadvata, of the mighty-armed Krishna, of the intelligent Narada, of many other rishis, and of Vyasa himself of immeasurable energy.
Mbh.11.8.309 Beholding him fall down in that state, his friends, as also the island-born Vyasa, and Vidura, and Sanjaya, and other well-wishers, and the attendants who used to wait at the gates and who enjoyed his confidence, sprinkled cool water over his body, and fanned him with palm leaves, and gently rubbed him with their hands.
Mbh.11.8.323 Hearing these words of his, the puissant Vyasa thus spoke unto his son afflicted with grief on account of the death of his children.
Mbh.11.8.324 Vyasa said, O mighty-armed Dhritarashtra, listen to what I say.
Mbh.11.8.386 Vaishampayana continued, Hearing these words of Vyasa of immeasurable energy and reflecting upon them for a little while, Dhritarashtra said, O best of regenerate ones, I am exceedingly afflicted by a heavy load of grief.
Mbh.11.8.389 Hearing these words of Dhritarashtra, O monarch, Satyavatis son, Vyasa, disappeared then and there
Mbh.11.9.390 SECTION Janamejaya said, After the holy Vyasa had departed, what, O regenerate sage, did king Dhritarashtra, do?
Mbh.11.11.486 Sharadvatas son, Kripa, went to Hastinapura; Hridikas son repaired to his own kingdom; while the son of Drona set for the asylum of Vyasa.
Mbh.11.16.664 In consequence of the gift of the boon by the great rishi Vyasa of sanctified deeds, she became possessed of spiritual knowledge and power.
Mbh.11.16.672 Then king Dhritarashtra, at the command of Vyasa, and all the sons of Pandu with Yudhishthira at their head, with Vasudeva and all the Kuru ladies, proceeded to the field of battle.
Mbh.12.1.7 Among them were the Island-born Vyasa, and Narada, and the great Rishi Devala, and Devasthana, and Kanwa.
Mbh.12.23.953 Then the island-born Vyasa said these words.
Mbh.12.23.954 Vyasa said, The words of Arjuna, O amiable Yudhishthira, are true.
Mbh.12.23.980 Vyasa said, In this connection is cited this old history.
Mbh.12.23.1007 Vyasa continued, Thus honoured by the high-souled king, the regenerate sage Likhita, however, did not solicit him for any other favour.
Mbh.12.23.1024 Vyasa continued, That king, O eldest son of Pandu, became eminent by this act and obtained the highest success like the lord Daksha himself!
Mbh.12.25.1077 SECTION XXV Vaisampayana said, Hearing the words of the Island-born Rishi and seeing Dhananjaya angry, Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, saluted Vyasa and made the following answer.
Mbh.12.25.1081 Vaisampayana continued, Thus addressed, the virtuous Vyasa that foremost of all persons conversant with Yoga, possessed of great wisdom and intimately acquainted with the Vedas, said unto Yudhisthira the following words.
Mbh.12.25.1082 Vyasa said, No man can acquire anything by his own acts or by sacrifices and worship.
Mbh.12.27.1236 Vaisampayana continued, Restraining Pritha's son who, stupefied by sorrow on account of his kinsmen, uttered such words, Vyasa, that best of ascetics, spoke as follows, first telling him, This can not be'
Mbh.12.27.1237 Vyasa said, It behoveth thee not, O monarch, to indulge in such poignant grief.
Mbh.12.28.1253 SECTION XXVIII Vaisampayana said, Vyasa then dispelled the grief of the eldest son of Pandu,
Mbh.12.28.1255 Vyasa said, In this connection is cited the old story, O tiger among men, that is known by the name of Asma's discourse.
Mbh.12.31.1680 Do thou, O foremost of kings dispel this grief born in thy heart, even as Kesava has counselled thee, as also Vyasa of austere penances.
Mbh.12.32.1682 SECTION XXXII Vaisampayana said, Unto king Yudhishthira who still remained speechless and plunged in grief, the island-born Vyasa, that great ascetic, conversant with truths of religion, spoke again
Mbh.12.32.1683 Vyasa said, O thou of eyes like lotus petals, the protection of subjects is the duty of kings.
Mbh.12.32.1704 Vyasa said, O Bharata, is the Supreme Being the doer, or is man the doer?
Mbh.12.33.1740 Vaisampayana continued, Hearing these words of Yudhishthira, the Island-born Rishi, having reflected keenly for some time, addressed the son of Pandu as follows: Vyasa said, Remembering the duties of a Kshatriya, O king, do not give way to grief.
Mbh.12.34.1801 Vyasa said, Having omitted to do those acts that have been ordained, and done those that have been interdicted, and having behaved deceitfully, a man becomes liable to perform expiation.
Mbh.12.35.1837 SECTION XXXVI Vyasa said, By penances, religious rites, and gifts, O Bharata, a man may wash off his sins if he does not commit them again.
Mbh.12.36.1907 Vyasa said, In this connection is cited the old account of a discourse between the ascetics and that lord of creation, viz, Manu.
Mbh.12.37.1974 Vaisampayana continued, Then Vyasa, O monarch, that foremost of all persons conversant with the Vedas, casting his eyes upon that ancient and all-knowing person, viz, Narada, said, If, O king, thou wishest to hear of duties and morality in full, then ask Bhishma, O mighty-armed one, that old grandsire of the Kurus.
Mbh.12.37.1990 Thus addressed by him, the high-souled son of Kunti, of great wisdom, said the following words unto Satyavati's son Vyasa, that first of eloquent men'
Mbh.12.37.1995 Do that, O best of kings, which the holy Vyasa has said.
Mbh.12.37.1998 For the sake of doing what is agreeable to these high-souled Brahmanas, in obedience also to the command of thy revered senior Vyasa of immeasurable energy, and at the request of out-selves that are thy well-wishers, and of Draupadi, O scorcher of foes, do what is agreeable to us, O slayer of foes, and what is beneficial to the world'
Mbh.12.37.2001 The tiger among men, viz, Yudhishthira of great fame, besought by Krishna himself, by the Island-born Vyasa, by Devasthana, by Jishnu, by these and many others, cast off his grief and anxiety.
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.12.50.2683 Saluting those foremost of Rishis headed by Vyasa.
Mbh.12.51.2783 Vaisampayana continued, Then those great Rishis, with Vyasa amongst them, adored Krishna with hymns from the Richs, the Yajuses, and the Samans.
Mbh.12.57.3101 Vaisampayana continued, The illustrious Vyasa and Devasthana and Aswa, and Vasudeva and Kripa and Satyaki and Sanjaya, filled with joy, and with faces resembling full-blown flowers, said, Excellent!
Mbh.12.230.14279 Bhishma said, In this connection I shall recite to thee an old narrative of what the divine Vyasa said unto his son Suka when the latter had questioned the former.
Mbh.12.230.14283 Vyasa said, Only Brahma, which is without beginning and without end, unborn, blazing with effulgence, above decay, immutable, indestructible, inconceivable, and transcending knowledge, exists before the Creation

Mbh.12.236.14614 SECTION CCXXXVII Vyasa said, Borne up and down in life's ocean, he that is capable of meditation seizes the raft of Knowledge and for achieving his Emancipation adheres to Knowledge itself without extending his arms hither and thither for catching any other support
Mbh.12.236.14620 Vyasa said, That fool who believing that all this exists in consequence of its own nature without, in fact, an existent refuge or foundation, fills by such instruction the aspirations of disciples, dispelling by his dialectical ingenuity the reasons the latter might urge to the contrary, succeeds not in attaining to any truth
Mbh.12.237.14666 SECTION CCXXXVIII Vyasa said, These, then, are the obligatory acts ordained for Brahmanas.
Mbh.12.238.14719 Vyasa said, No man ever attains to success by means other than the acquisition of knowledge, the practice of penances, the subjugation of the senses, and renunciation of everything

Mbh.12.241.14878 Vyasa said, The course of conduct that was first established by Brahma himself was duly observed by the wise and pious persons of old, viz, the great Rishis of ancient times.
Mbh.12.241.14887 Vyasa said, One that is a Brahmacharin, one that leads a life of domesticity, one that is a forest recluse, and one that leads a life of religious mendicancy, all reach the same high end by duly observing the duties of their respective modes of life.
Mbh.12.242.14915 SECTION CCXLIII Vyasa said, Observant of meritorious vows, the householder, for the second period of life, should dwell in his house, having taken spouses according to the ways indicated in the ordinance and having established afire of his own.
Mbh.12.243.14986 Vyasa said, When the householder beholds wrinkles on his body and white hair on his head, and children of his children, he should then retire into the forest.
Mbh.12.244.15045 Vyasa said, Having acquired purity of conduct and body by the practice of the first two modes of life, viz, Brahmacharya and domesticity, one should, after that, set one's soul on Yoga in the third mode of life.
Mbh.12.245.15115 SECTION CCXLVI Vyasa said, The Jiva-soul is endued with all those entities that are modifications of Prakriti.

Mbh.12.250.15334 SECTION CCLI Vyasa said, One should not show any affection for scents and tastes and other kinds of enjoyment.
Mbh.12.251.15374 SECTION CCLII Vyasa said, Unto a disciple that wishes to enquire after Emancipation after having transcended all pairs of opposites and accomplished the concerns of both profit and religion, an accomplished preceptor should first recount all that has been said in the foregoing section, which is elaborate, on the topic of Adhyatma
Mbh.12.252.15399 SECTION CCLIII Vyasa said, Those that are conversant with the scriptures behold, with the aid of acts laid down in the scriptures, the Soul which is clothed in a subtile body and is exceedingly subtile and which is dissociated from the gross body in which it resides
Mbh.12.253.15416 SECTION CCLIV Vyasa said, There is a wonderful tree, called Desire, in the heart of a man.
Mbh.12.284.17855 This was said even by the puissant Vyasa, the son of Parasara
Mbh.12.321.20366 SECTION CCCXXII Yudhishthira said, How was Suka, the son of Vyasa, in days of old, won over to Renunciation?
Mbh.12.321.20370 Bhishma said, Beholding his son Suka living fearlessly as ordinary men do in practices that are considered harmless by them, Vyasa taught him the entire Vedas and then discoursed to him one day in these words: Vyasa said, O son, becoming the master of the senses, do thou subdue extreme cold and extreme heat, hunger and thirst, and the wind also, and having subdued them as Yogins do, do thou practise righteousness.
Mbh.12.321.20542 Bhishma continued, Having heard these beneficial words spoken by the Island-born Vyasa, Suka, leaving his sire, proceeded to seek a preceptor that could teach him the religion of Emancipation
Mbh.12.323.20574 SECTION CCCXXIV Yudhishthira said, Tell me, O grandsire, how the high-souled Suka of austere penances took birth as the son of Vyasa, and how did he succeed in attaining to the highest success?
Mbh.12.323.20575 Upon what woman did Vyasa, endued with wealth of asceticism, beget that son of his?
Mbh.12.323.20591 There at the close vicinity of that summit, the Island-born Vyasa underwent extraordinary austerities.
Mbh.12.323.20595 The puissant Vyasa remained there for a hundred years, subsisting on air alone, engaged in adoring Mahadeva of multifarious form, the lord of Uma.
Mbh.12.324.20612 Beholding the Apsara in those woods, the illustrious Rishi Vyasa, O Yudhishthira, became suddenly smitten with desire.
Mbh.12.324.20615 Summoning all his patience, the ascetic endeavoured to suppress that desire; with all his effort, however, Vyasa did not succeed in controlling his agitated mind.
Mbh.12.325.20647 When Vyasa behind his son to be possessed of the resplendence of the Vedas, endued with the energy of Brahma, and fully conversant with the religion of Emancipation, he addressed him, saying, Go thou to Janaka the ruler of Mithila.
Mbh.12.327.20815 At the foot of those mountains, in a retired spot, Parasara's son of great ascetic merit, viz, Vyasa, taught the Vedas unto his disciples.
Mbh.12.327.20817 Suka proceeded to that delightful asylum where his sire, the great ascetic Vyasa, was dwelling, surrounded by his disciples.
Mbh.12.327.20818 Seated in his asylum, Vyasa beheld his son approach like a blazing fire of scattered flames, or resembling the sun himself in effulgence.
Mbh.12.327.20824 Vyasa the son of Parasara, after the arrival of his puissant son, continued to dwell there on the Himavat engaged in teaching his disciples and his son.
Mbh.12.327.20841 Even this is the boon that we solicit, Hearing these words of his disciples, Vyasa, the son of Parasara, possessed of great intelligence, well-conversant with the meaning of the Vedas, endued with a righteous soul, and always engaged in thinking of objects that confer benefits on a person in the world hereafter, said unto his disciples these righteous words fraught with great benefit: The Vedas should always be given unto him who is a Brahmana, or unto him who is desirous of listening to Vedic instructions, by him who eagerly wishes to attain a residence in the region of Brahman!
Mbh.12.328.20862 Having said this unto one another with joyful hearts, the disciples of Vyasa, who were thorough masters of words, once more addressed their preceptor and said, If it pleases thee, O puissant one, we wish to descend from this mountain to the Earth, O great ascetic, for the purpose of subdividing the Vedas,
Mbh.12.328.20869 After his disciples had gone away, Vyasa remained in his asylum, with only his son in his company.
Mbh.12.328.20871 At that time Narada of great ascetic merit came to that spot for seeing Vyasa, and addressing him, said these words of melodious sound.
Mbh.12.328.20889 Do thou with thy intelligent son recite the Vedas, and do thou with the echoes of Vedic sounds dispel the fears arising from Rakshasas: Bhishma continued, Hearing these words of Narada, Vyasa, the foremost of all persons conversant with duties and firmly devoted to Vedic recitation, became filled with joy and answered Narada, saying, So be it, With his son Suka, he set himself to recite the Vedas in a loud sonorous voice, observing all the rules of orthoepy and, as it were, filling the three worlds with that sound.
Mbh.12.328.20892 Vyasa immediately bade his son to suspend the recitation.
Mbh.12.328.20896 Hearing this question of Suka, Vyasa became filled with amazement.
Mbh.12.329.20949 SECTION CCCXXX Bhishma said, After Vyasa had left the spot, Narada, traversing through the sky, came to Suka employed in studying the scriptures.
Mbh.12.332.21221 SECTION CCCXXXIII Bhishma said, Having ascended the summit of the mountain, O Bharata, the son of Vyasa sat down upon a level spot free from blades of grass and retired from the haunts of other creatures.
Mbh.12.332.21224 In that spot where the intelligent son of Vyasa sat prepared to address himself to Yoga, there were no flocks of birds, no sound, and no sight that was repulsive or terror-inspiring.
Mbh.12.332.21233 Bhishma said, Having received the permission of Narada, Suka the son of the Island-born Vyasa saluted the celestial Rishi and once more set himself to Yoga and entered the element of space.
Mbh.12.333.21298 Learning that Suka had undertaken his great journey, his sire Vyasa, filled with affection, followed him behind along the same aerial path.
Mbh.12.333.21300 Adopting the subtile path of high Yoga, Vyasa of austere penances, reached within the twinkling of the eye that spot whence Suka first undertook his journey.
Mbh.12.333.21301 Proceeding along the same way, Vyasa beheld the mountain summit rent in twain and through which Suka has passed.
Mbh.12.333.21303 Vyasa, however, began to indulge in lamentations, loudly calling upon his son by name and causing the three worlds to resound with the noise he made.
Mbh.12.333.21309 Beholding that glory and puissance of his son of immeasurable energy, Vyasa sat down on the breast of the mountain and began to think of his son with grief.
Mbh.12.333.21315 As Vyasa was seated there, the auspicious god Siva, armed with Pinaka, surrounded on all sides by many deities and Gandharvas and adored by all the great Rishis came thither.
Mbh.12.333.21326 The celestial Rishi Narada and the great Yogin Vyasa had repeatedly told all this to me in days of yore when the subject was suggested to him in course of conversation.
Mbh.12.340.22016 Sauti said, O excellent Saunaka, I shall recite to thee what Vaisampayana, the disciple of the intelligent Vyasa, said when questioned on these very topics by king Janamejaya.
Mbh.12.340.22035 I shall, however, answer thee by reciting to thee what my preceptor the Island-born Krishna, otherwise called Vyasa, the great Rishi who has classified the Vedas, had said unto us on a former occasion when questioned by us.
Mbh.12.340.22036 Sumanta, and Jaimini, and Paila of firm vows, and myself numbering the fourth, and Suka forming the fifth, were disciples of the illustrious Vyasa.
Mbh.12.340.22043 Hearing these words that were addressed to him by his disciples that dispeller of all kinds of darkness represented by ignorance, viz, the blessed Vyasa, the son of Parasara, said these words: have undergone very severe, in fact, the austerest of penances.
Mbh.12.340.22165 Vyasa continued, Thus commanded by the great God, the deities with all the Rishis bowed their heads unto him and then proceeded to the places they desired.
Mbh.12.341.22215 SECTION CCCXLII Janamejaya said, O holy one, it behoveth thee to tell me the significance of those diverse names uttering which the great Rishi Vyasa with his disciples hymned the praises of the illustrious slayer of Madhu.
Mbh.12.343.22736 O Saunaka, that king of kings, addressed the grandfather of his grandfather, viz, the Island-born Krishna, otherwise called Vyasa, that ocean of Vedic lore, that foremost of ascetics endued with puissance, and said these words.
Mbh.12.343.22761 Vaisampayana said Salutations unto the holy Vyasa of immeasurable energy.
Mbh.12.346.22932 He who is our preceptor, viz, the Rishi Vyasa, the son of Gandhavati, has himself recited this discourse unto us on the glory of Narayana, that glory which is the highest and which is immutable.
Mbh.12.346.22937 Know that the Island-born Krishna, otherwise called Vyasa, is Narayana on Earth.
Mbh.12.348.23290 It was even in this way, O monarch, that, that foremost of regenerate persons, viz, the illustrious Vyasa, my preceptor, fully conversant with all duties, discoursed unto king Yudhishthira the just on this religion of Devotion, in the presence of many Rishis and in the hearing of Krishna and Bhishma.
Mbh.12.348.23322 Vyasa gratified with Dharma's son Yudhishthira, imparted this religion to king Yudhishthira the just who was possessed of great intelligence.
Mbh.12.349.23334 Verily, the high-souled Vyasa is unborn and ancient and is the inexhaustible receptacle of the Vedas
Mbh.12.349.23336 Thou tellest me again that Vyasa is the son of Narayana.
Mbh.12.349.23337 I ask, was it in some former birth that Vyasa of immeasurable energy had sprung from Narayana?
Mbh.12.349.23338 O thou of great intelligence, do tell me of that birth of Vyasa which was due to Narayana
Mbh.12.349.23343 Surrounded by these disciples of his, Vyasa shone in beauty on the breast of the Himavat mountains like the Lord of all the ghostly beings, viz, Mahadeva, in the midst of those ghostly attendants of his.
Mbh.12.349.23347 Vyasa said, Listen, ye disciples, to this foremost of narratives, to this best of histories that relates again to the birth of a Rishi.
Mbh.12.349.23425 Vaisampayana continued, I have thus narrated to thee, O monarch, the circumstances connected with the former birth of our revered preceptor, viz, Vyasa of unstained mind, as asked by thee.
Mbh.12.350.23451 I shall explain this now, after bowing to my preceptor Vyasa, that foremost of Rishis, who is conversant with the soul, endued with penances, self-restrained, and worthy of reverent worship.
Mbh.12.350.23454 The foremost of Rishis, viz, Vyasa, has thought upon it.
Mbh.12.350.23456 Through the grace of Vyasa of immeasurable energy, I shall expound to thee what Vyasa has said in brief on this question of the Oneness of Purusha.
Mbh.13.14.988 The great ascetic who is Parasara's son, viz, Vyasa, of soul set on Yoga, has obtained great celebrity by adoring Sankara.
Mbh.13.17.2625 Thou art Vyasa, the author of the Puranas and other sacred histories.
Mbh.13.24.3401 Bhishma said, Formerly, O monarch, I had one day requested Vyasa to explain to me this very subject.
Mbh.13.24.3402 I shall now narrate to thee what Vyasa told me on that occasion.
Mbh.13.24.3404 Repairing to the presence of Vyasa, I addressed him, saying, Thou, O great ascetic, art the fourth in descent from Vasishtha.
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.13.81.7220 Having heard these words of his son, O chief of Bharata's race, Vyasa, the foremost of all persons conversant with duties, discoursed as follows unto him'
Mbh.13.81.7221 Vyasa said, Kine constitute the stay of all creatures.
Mbh.13.117.10460 Vyasa said, O worm, thou seemest to be exceedingly alarmed, and to be in great haste.
Mbh.13.117.10476 Bhishma continued, Thus addressed, the Island-born Vyasa said, O worm, whence can be thy happiness?
Mbh.13.118.10511 SECTION CXVIII Vyasa said, It is in consequence of a meritorious act, O worm, that thou, though born in the intermediate order of being, art not stupefied.
Mbh.13.118.10525 The worm, agreeing to the words of Vyasa, did not leave the road, but remained on it.
Mbh.13.118.10528 Born at last in the Kshatriya order through the grace of Vyasa of immeasurable puissance, he proceeded to see the great Rishi.
Mbh.13.118.10543 Vyasa said, I have today been worshipped by thee, O king, with diverse words expressive of reverence.
Mbh.13.119.10557 Vyasa said, The penances that appertain, O worm, to the Kshatriya order consist of the protection of all creatures.
Mbh.13.119.10566 Vyasa said, O chief of Brahmanas, O blessed one, be not troubled through fear of death!
Mbh.13.119.10576 Indeed, O son of Pritha, the worm attained to the highest status, viz, that of eternal Brahma, as the result of his own acts done in obedience to the counsels of Vyasa.
Mbh.13.120.10584 Seeing Vyasa arrive, that foremost of Rishis, viz, Maitreya, gave him a seat and after worshipping him with due rites, fed him with excellent food.
Mbh.13.120.10595 Vyasa said, This wonder that has filled me hath arisen from an ordinance that looks like a hyperbole, and from its paradoxical statement for the comprehension of the people.
Mbh.13.121.10631 SECTION CXXI Bhishma said, Thus addressed by Vyasa, Maitreya, who was a worshipper of acts, who had been born in a race endued with great prosperity, who was wise and possessed of great learning said unto him these words.
Mbh.13.121.10633 Vyasa said, Whatever thou wishest to say, O Maitreya, do thou say, O man of great wisdom, for I wish to hear thee.
Mbh.13.125.10825 Bhishma said, Listen to me with concentrated attention, O king, as I explain to thee, O Bharata, these mysteries appertaining to duties, after the same manner in which the holy Vyasa had explained them to me in days of yore.
Mbh.13.125.10883 Having heard from the holy Vyasa what the end is of the three rice-balls offered at the Sraddha, as explained by the Pitris themselves in reply to the question of the celestial messenger, I shall explain the same to thee.
Mbh.13.134.11275 Held in high respect by all the gods and promulgated by Vyasa, they have now been declared by me for thy benefit.
Mbh.13.148.12459 Having heard the words of Vyasa as also of Narada endued with great intelligence, I have discoursed to thee on the adorableness of Krishna.

Mbh.13.149.12568 This hymn in praise of the illustrious Vishnu composed by Vyasa, should be recited by that person who wishes to acquire happiness and that which is the highest benefit viz, emancipation.
Mbh.13.150.12573 Bhishma said, Hear, O king, with concentrated, attention, what that Mantra is which was declared by Vyasa.
Mbh.13.150.12622 Rama, Vyasa, Drona's son Aswatthaman, are the other Rishis that are regarded as the foremost.
Mbh.13.161.13460 The Brahmanas always recite the excellent Sata-rudriya in his honour, that occurs in the Vedas as also that which has been composed by Vyasa.
Mbh.13.165.13705 They are Atri, Vasishtha, Saktri, Parasara's son Vyasa of great energy; Viswamitra, Bharadwaja, Jamadagni, the son of Richika, Rama, Auddalaka, Swetaketu, Kohala, Vipula, Devala, Devasarman, Dhaumya, Hastikasyapa, Lomasa, Nachiketa, Lomaharsana, Ugrasravas, and Bhrigu's son Chyavana.
Mbh.13.166.13720 Then Vyasa the son of Satyavati, having reflected for a moment, addressed the royal son of Ganga, saying, O king, the Kuru chief Yudhishthira has been restored to his own nature, along with all brothers and followers.
Mbh.13.166.13723 Thus addressed by the holy Vyasa, the royal son of Santanu and Ganga dismissed Yudhishthira and his counsellors.
Mbh.13.167.13752 He beheld his grandsire waited upon with reverence by Parasara's son Vyasa of great intelligence, by Narada, O royal sage, by Devala and Asita, and also by the remnant of unslain kings assembled from various parts of the country.
Mbh.13.167.13755 They also saluted the Rishis with the island-born Vyasa at their head.
Mbh.13.167.13811 The celestial Rishi Narada told me this, as also Vyasa of austere penances.
Mbh.13.168.13830 In the midst of those high-souled persons, including those great Rishis with Vyasa at their head, the sight seemed to be a strange one, O king.
Mbh.13.168.13832 Beholding it, all those distinguished personages with Vasudeva at their head, and all the ascetics with Vyasa, became filled with wonder.
Mbh.13.168.13849 They were followed by Vyasa, by Narada, by Asita, by Krishna, by the ladies of the Bharata race, as also by such of the citizens of Hastinapore as had come to the place.
Mbh.13.168.13877 Vaisampayana continued, That foremost of all rivers, thus addressed by Krishna and Vyasa, cast off her grief, O great king, and became restored to equanimity.
Mbh.14.2.46 As Pritha's son was speaking thus, the highly-energetic Vyasa, cognisant of the duties of life, soothing him, spoke these excellent words, My child, thy mind is not yet calmed; and therefore thou art again stupefied by a childish sentiment.
Mbh.14.3.56 SECTION III Vyasa said, O Yudhishthira, thy wisdom, I conceive, is not adequate.
Mbh.14.3.84 Vyasa said If, O Pritha's son, thou art anxious to hear concerning that king sprung from the Karandhama race, then listen to me as I tell thee when that highly powerful monarch possessed of immense wealth reigned
Mbh.14.4.87 Vyasa said, O child, in the Krita age Manu was lord of the Earth wielding the sceptre.
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.14.6.152 SECTION VI Vyasa said, The ancient legend of Vrihaspati and the wise Marutta is cited in this connection.
Mbh.14.6.162 Vyasa said, Thus told, king Marutta became confused with shame, and while returning home with his mind oppressed by anxiety, he met Narada on his way.
Mbh.14.6.170 Vyasa said, Thus told by that king, Narada, O mighty prince, made this reply to him with words which seemed to revive that son of Avikshit'
Mbh.14.6.178 Vyasa said, Having signified his assent to the proposal of Narada, that royal sage after duly worshipping him, and taking his permission, repaired to the city of Varanasi, and having reached there, that famous prince did as he had been told, and remembering the words of Narada, he placed a corpse at the gate of the city.
Mbh.14.7.192 Vyasa said, Hearing these words from the king Marutta Samvarta was highly gratified, and he said addressing Marutta.
Mbh.14.9.239 Vyasa said, Then the high-souled fire-god went on his errand, devastating all the forests and trees, like unto the mighty wind, roaring and revolving at random at the end of the winter season
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.14.10.280 Vyasa said, Then Dhritarashtra betook himself to that monarch's court and delivered this message to him from Vasava
Mbh.14.10.288 Vyasa said, Thus accosted by Dhritarashtra, and hearing the roar of howling Vasava, the king communicated this intelligence to Samvarta steadfast in devotion and the highest of all virtuous men
Mbh.14.10.314 Vyasa said, Thus accosted by the son of Angira, Sakra himself gave directions to all the gods to erect the hall of assembly, and a thousand well-furnished excellent rooms looking grand as in a picture, and speedily to complete the staircase massive and durable, for the ascent of the Gandharvas and Apsaras and to furnish that portion of the sacrificial ground reserved for the dance of the Apsaras, like unto the palace of Indra in the heaven.
Mbh.14.10.325 Vaisampayana continued, Then the Pandava prince Yudhishthira was delighted on hearing this speech of the son of Satyavati Vyasa, and desirous of performing his sacrifice with those riches, he held repeated consultations with his ministers
Mbh.14.11.326 SECTION XI Vaisampayana said, When Vyasa of wonderful achievements had concluded his speech to the king, the highly-puissant son of Vasudeva Krishna also addressed him.
Mbh.14.14.392 And O monarch, that lord of men exhorted by the worshipful Viswarasraba himself, and by Dwaipayana Vyasa, Krishna Devasthana, Narada, Bhima, Nakula, Krishna Draupadi, Sahadeva, and the sharpwitted Vijaya, as well as by other great men, and Brahmanas versed in the Sastras, became relieved of all mental affliction and sorrow arising from the death of his dear relations.
Mbh.14.14.394 And that prince of Kuru's race having regained his kingdom, with a tranquil mind, thus addressed Vyasa, Narada and the other sages who were present.
Mbh.14.52.2289 O thou that art irresistible, I have learnt it from Narada and Devala and the Island-born Vyasa, and the Kuru grandsire also, that all this universe rests on thee.
Mbh.14.62.2867 Then Vyasa, ascertaining the state of things by his spiritual vision, came there.
Mbh.14.62.2883 Then Vyasa urged the royal son of Dharma for performing the horse-sacrifice.
Mbh.14.62.2885 The intelligent king Yudhishthira the just, hearing the words of Vyasa, set his mind on the journey for bringing wealth for the sacrifice
Mbh.14.63.2886 SECTION LXIII Janamejaya said, Having heard these words, O regenerate one, that were spoken by the high-souled Vyasa in respect of the horse-sacrifice, what steps were taken by Yudhishthira?
Mbh.14.63.2889 Verily, you have heard those words that have been uttered by that ascetic of abundant penances, that great sage desirous of bestowing prosperity on his friends, that preceptor of righteous behaviour, viz, Vyasa of wonderful feats.
Mbh.14.63.2895 Ye kings, Vyasa, therefore, informed us of the wealth that lies buried in the Earth of Marutta.
Mbh.14.63.2898 When the king, O perpetuator of Kuru's race, said these words, Bhimasena, joining his hands, said these words in reply, The words thou hast said, O thou of mighty-arms, on the subject of bringing the wealth indicated by Vyasa, are approved by me.
Mbh.14.65.2949 Having performed the worship of Rudra and of all the Ganas, the king, placing Vyasa ahead, proceeded towards the place where the treasure was buried.
Mbh.14.71.3130 Then, after a few days, Vyasa, the son of Satyavati, endued with great energy, came to the city named after the elephant.
Mbh.14.71.3133 After having conversed on various subjects, Dharma's son Yudhishthira addressed Vyasa and said, This treasure, O holy one, which has been brought through thy grace I wish to devote to that great sacrifice known by the name of the horse-sacrifice.
Mbh.14.71.3136 Vyasa said, I give thee permission, O king.
Mbh.14.72.3166 SECTION LXXII Vaisampayana said, Thus addressed by Krishna, Yudhishthira, the son of Dharma, endued with great intelligence, saluted Vyasa and said these words: Do thou cause me to be initiated when the proper hour, as thou truly knowest, comes for that rite.
Mbh.14.72.3168 Vyasa said, Myself, O son of Kunti, and Paila and Yajnavalkya, shall without doubt, achieve every rite at the proper time.
Mbh.14.72.3177 Then Vyasa of great energy said unto the royal son of Dharma, As regards ourselves, we are all prepared to initiate thee in view of the sacrifice.
Mbh.14.73.3208 The horse that was brought for the horse-sacrifice was let loose, agreeably to the injunctions of the scriptures, that utterer of Brahma, viz, Vyasa himself of immeasurable energy.
Mbh.14.88.3913 On the third day, the sage Vyasa, the son of Satyavati, that foremost of eloquent men, approaching Yudhishthira said, From this day, O son of Kunti, do thou begin thy sacrifice.
Mbh.14.88.3925 Thus addressed by Vyasa of immeasurable intelligence, the righteous-souled Yudhishthira of great energy underwent the Diksha for performance of the Horse-sacrifice
Mbh.14.88.3953 There were daily seen the disciples of Vyasa, those foremost of regenerate ones, who are compilers of all branches of learning, and well conversant with sacrificial rites.
Mbh.14.89.3962 Having thus completed the sacrifice of that monarch, who was endued with the energy of Sakra himself, the illustrious Vyasa with his disciples eulogised the king greatly.
Mbh.14.89.3963 Then Yudhishthira gave away unto the Brahmanas a thousand crores of golden nishkas, and unto Vyasa he gave away the whole Earth.
Mbh.14.89.3964 Satyavati's son Vyasa, having accepted the Earth, addressed that foremost one of Bharata's race, viz, king Yudhishthira the just, and said, O best of kings, the Earth which thou hast given me I return unto thee.
Mbh.14.89.3981 Then Vasudeva, addressing king Yudhishthira the just, said, It behoveth thee to do as thou art bid by the illustrious Vyasa'
Mbh.14.89.3990 The holy and illustrious Vyasa respectfully presented his own share, which was very large, of that gold unto Kunti.
Mbh.15.1.21 The holy Vyasa also used to often meet with the old monarch and recite to him the histories of old Rishis and celestial ascetics and Pitris and Rakshasas.
Mbh.15.3.98 The holy and high-souled Vyasa repeatedly said the same, as also Sanjaya and Gandhari.
Mbh.15.3.213 When Dhritarashtra said these words to Yudhishthira, Satyavati's son Vyasa came there and said as follows
Mbh.15.4.214 SECTION IV Vyasa said, O mighty-armed Yudhishthira, do without any scruple what Dhritarashtra of Kuru's race hag said.
Mbh.15.4.225 Vaisampayana said, Thus addressed at that time by Vyasa of wonderful deeds, king Yudhishthira the just, possessed of mighty energy, said unto the great ascetic these words, Thy holy self is held by us in great reverence.
Mbh.15.4.233 Vyasa, that foremost of poets, foremost of all persons conversant with the Vedas, endued with great energy once more said unto Yudhishthira these words, It is even so, O mighty-armed one.
Mbh.15.4.249 Vaisampayana continued, Having said these words, Vyasa soothed the old king.
Mbh.15.4.252 After the holy Vyasa had gone away, the royal son of Pandu softly said these words unto his old father, bending himself in humility, What the holy Vyasa has said, what is thy own purpose, what the great bowman Kripa has said, what Vidura has expressed, and what has been asked for by Yuyutsu and Sanjaya, I shall accomplish with speed.
Mbh.15.8.402 Unto that husband of hers who resembled a second Lord of all creatures, while resting on a seat, Gandhari of righteous conduct, conversant with the opportuneness of everything, said these words, the hour being suited to them, Thou hast obtained the permission of that great Rishi, viz, Vyasa himself.
Mbh.15.8.415 Vyasa has approved of this, as also the son of Kunti.
Mbh.15.19.783 Accompanied by him, the latter proceeded to the retreat of Vyasa.
Mbh.15.19.786 The high-souled Satayupa, instructed Dhritarashtra in all the rites of the forest mode, at the command of Vyasa.
Mbh.15.20.794 The Island-born Vyasa with all his disciples, and other persons endued with great wisdom and crowned with ascetic success, and the royal sage Satayupa of advanced years and possessed of great merit, also came.
Mbh.15.26.1037 Endued with mighty energy, he had heard of Yoga practice from Vyasa.
Mbh.15.27.1081 The illustrious and learned Vyasa, possessed of great energy, and reverenced by even the celestial Rishis, showed himself, at the head of his numerous disciples, unto Yudhishthira.
Mbh.15.27.1083 Approaching near, Vyasa, surrounded by Satayupa and others, addressed king Dhritarashtra, saying, Be thou seated'
Mbh.15.27.1084 The illustrious Vyasa then took an excellent seat made of Kusa grass placed upon a black deer-skin and covered with a piece of silken cloth.
Mbh.15.27.1086 After Vyasa had been seated, all those foremost of regenerate persons, endued with abundant energy, sat themselves down, having received the permission of the Island-born sage
Mbh.15.28.1087 SECTION XXVIII Vaisampayana said, After the high-souled Pandavas had all been seated, Satyavati's son Vyasa said, O Dhritarashtra of mighty arms, hast thou been able to achieve penances?
Mbh.15.29.1134 O learned Brahmana, what that wonderful feat was which the great Rishi Vyasa of high energy accomplished after his promise to the old king, made when Dhritarashtra, that lord of Earth, that foremost one of Kuru's race, had taken up his abode in the forest, with his wife and with his daughter-in-law Kunti; and after, indeed, Vidura had left his own body and entered into Yudhishthira, and at the time when all the sons of Pandu were staying in the ascetic retreat.
Mbh.15.29.1139 Towards the close of that period, O sinless one, Vyasa came there.
Mbh.15.29.1140 While all those princes sat around Vyasa, engaged in conversation on diverse subjects, other Rishis came to that spot.
Mbh.15.29.1148 At the close of that conversation Vyasa of great energy, that foremost of eloquent men, that first of all persons conversant with the Vedas, highly gratified, addressed the blind monarch and once more said, Burning as thou art with grief on account of thy children, I know, O king of kings, what object is cherished by thee in thy heart.
Mbh.15.29.1155 Thus addressed by Vyasa of immeasurable understanding, king Dhritarashtra reflected for a moment and then prepared to speak.
Mbh.15.29.1194 The boon giving Rishi Vyasa, capable of both beholding and hearing what happened at a remote distance, saw that the royal mother of Arjuna was afflicted with grief.
Mbh.15.29.1195 Unto her Vyasa said, Tell me, O blessed one, what is in thy mind.
Mbh.15.30.1234 Thus addressed by Kunti, Vyasa, that foremost of all persons, said unto her in reply, Blessed be thou; all that thou hast said unto me will happen.
Mbh.15.31.1253 Vyasa said, Blessed be thou, O Gandhari, thou shalt behold thy sons and brothers and friends and kinsmen along with thy sires this night like men risen from sleep.
Mbh.15.31.1285 Vaisampayana continued, All the persons there present, having heard the words of Vyasa, raised a loud leonine shout and then proceeded towards the Bhagirathi.
Mbh.15.32.1291 SECTION XXXII Vaisampayana said, When night came, all those persons, having finished their evening rites, approached Vyasa.
Mbh.15.32.1295 Then the great ascetic, Vyasa, of mighty energy, bathing in the sacred waters of the Bhagirathi, summoned all the deceased warriors, viz, those that had fought on the side of the Pandavas, those that had fought for the Kauravas, including highly blessed kings belonging to diverse realms.
Mbh.15.33.1339 After all of them had gone away, the great sage, who was standing in the waters of the sacred stream viz, Vyasa of great righteousness and energy, that benefactor of the Kurus, then addressed those Kshatriya ladies who had become widows, and said these words, Let those amongst these foremost of women that are desirous of attaining to the regions acquired by their husbands cast away all sloth and quickly plunge into the sacred Bhagirathi,
Mbh.15.33.1345 Devoted to the duties of piety, Vyasa, at that time, becoming a giver of boons, granted unto all the men there assembled the fruition of the wishes they respectively cherished.
Mbh.15.34.1355 Thus asked, that foremost of regenerate persons, viz, the disciple of Vyasa, that first of speakers, possessed of great energy, thus answered Janamejaya.
Mbh.15.35.1396 Dhritarashtra also attained to great success in consequence of having met the ascetic Vyasa'
Mbh.15.35.1397 Janamejaya said, If Vyasa, disposed to grant me a boon, kindly show me my sire in that form which he had, clad as he used to be clad, and as old as he was when he departed from this world, I may then believe all that thou hast told me.
Mbh.15.35.1402 Sauti said, After king Janamejaya had said these words, Vyasa of great energy and intelligence showed his grace and brought Parikshit from the other world.
Mbh.15.35.1410 Astika said, The performer of that sacrifice in which the ancient Rishi, the Island-born Vyasa, that vast receptacle of penances, is present, is sure, O foremost one of Kuru's race, to conquer both the worlds.
Mbh.15.36.1439 Thus addressed by Vyasa of incomparable energy, the Kuru king, well-versed in words, summoned Yudhishthira and said unto him, O Ajatasatru, blessings on thee!
Mbh.16.7.349 Having done all these acts suited to the occasion, Arjuna, with eyes bathed in tears, then entered the retreat of Vyasa.
Mbh.16.8.355 Seeing that the son of Pritha was exceedingly cheerless and breathing heavy sighs repeatedly and filled with despair, Vyasa addressed him, saying, Hast thou been sprinkled with water from anybodys nails or hair, or the end of anybodys cloth, or from the mouth of a jar?
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.16.8.413 Vaishampayana continued: Having heard these words of Vyasa of immeasurable energy, the son of Pritha, receiving his permission, returned to the city named after the elephant.
Mbh.17.1.21 The king, in honour of Hari and naming him repeatedly, fed the Island-born Vyasa, and Narada, and Markandeya possessed of wealth of penances, and Yajnavalkya of Bharadwajas race, with many delicious viands.
Mbh.18.1.6 I think that thou art conversant with everything, having been taught by the great Rishi Vyasa of wonderful feats.
Mbh.18.5.234 Sauti said: Thus questioned, that regenerate Rishi, receiving the permission of the high-souled Vyasa, set himself to answer the question of the king.
Mbh.18.5.238 It was explained to us by Vyasa of mighty energy, celestial vision and great prowess, that ancient ascetic, O Kauravya, who is the son of Parasara and who always observes high vows, who is of immeasurable understanding, who is omniscient, and who, therefore knows the end attached to all acts.
Mbh.18.5.274 I have now told everything that Vaishampayana narrated, at the command of Vyasa, unto the king at his snake sacrifice.
Mbh.18.5.307 In former times, the great Rishi Vyasa, having composed this treatise, caused his son Suka to read it with him, along with these four Verses.
