MAHABHARATA NOUN

See All Nouns, See All Categories

Mbh.1.2.561 Then Yudhishthira, the soul of justice, heard the heart-rending lamentations of his brothers abiding in that region under the discipline of Yama.
Mbh.1.23.1523 At the sight of the splendour resembling that of Yama when in wrath, our hearts lose all equanimity and quake.
Mbh.1.28.1661 And endued with great strength, he soon fell upon the Nishadas, hungry and like another Yama.
Mbh.1.30.1747 Kasyapa also saw his son, that ranger of the skies, of divine form, possessed of great splendour, and energy and strength, and endued with the speed of the wind or the mind, huge as a mountain peak, a ready smiter like the curse of a Brahmana, inconceivable, indescribable, frightful to all creatures, possessed of great prowess, terrible, of the splendour of Agni himself, and incapable of being overcome by the deities, Danavas, and invincible Rakshasas, capable of splitting mountain summits and sucking the ocean itself and destroying the three worlds, fierce, and looking like Yama himself.
Mbh.1.41.2166 And Sringin said, That sinful wretch of a monarch who hath placed a dead snake on the shoulders of my lean and old parent, that insulter of Brahmanas and tarnisher of the fame of the Kurus, shall be taken within seven nights hence to the regions of Yama Death by the snake Takshaka, the powerful king of serpents, stimulated thereto by the strength of my words'
Mbh.1.42.2235 He had heard all that had taken place, viz, that Takshaka, that first of snakes, would send that best of monarchs to the presence of Yama Death.
Mbh.1.55.2731 Like the sacrifice of Yama, of Harimedha, or of king Rantideva, is the sacrifice of thine, O foremost one of Bharata's race, O son of Parikshit.
Mbh.1.55.2745 Indeed, thou art either Varuna, or Yama, the god of Justice.
Mbh.1.55.2755 Like Yama art thou conversant with the dispensation of justice.
Mbh.1.63.3178 And Yudhishthira was born of the seed of Dharma Yama, the god of justice; and Bhima of the wolf's stomach was born of Marut the god of wind, and Dhananjaya, blessed with good fortune and the first of all wielders of weapons, was born of Indra; and Nakula and Sahadeva, of handsome features and ever engaged in the service of their superiors, were born of the twin Aswins.
Mbh.1.65.3286 And the sons of Kala were all like Yama himself and smiter of all foes.
Mbh.1.67.3494 And, O king, his son the heroic Aswatthaman, of eyes like the lotus-petals, gifted with surpassing energy, and the terror of all foes, the great oppressor of all enemies, was born on earth, of the united portions of Mahadeva, Yama, Kama, and Krodha.
Mbh.1.71.3779 His mouth is like unto a blazing fire; the pupils of his eyes are like the Sun and the Moon; his tongue is like unto Yama himself.
Mbh.1.71.3781 At the thought of his prowess Yama, Soma, the great Rishis, the Saddhyas, the Viswas, Valakhilyas, are terrified!
Mbh.1.74.3918 The Sun, the Moon, the Air, the Fire, the Earth, the Sky, Water, the heart, Yama, the day, the night, both twilights, and Dharma, all witness the acts of man.
Mbh.1.74.3919 Yama, the son of Surya, takes no account of the sins of him with whom Narayana the witness of all acts, is gratified.
Mbh.1.74.3920 But he with whom Narayana is not gratified is tortured for his sins by Yama.
Mbh.1.74.3957 Even when the husband leaving this world goeth into the region of Yama, it is the devoted wife that accompanies him thither.
Mbh.1.74.4028 I can repair to the abodes of Indra, Kuvera, Yama, and Varuna!
Mbh.1.74.4071 O best of men, the son, who is but a form of one's own seed, rescueth ancestors from the region of Yama.
Mbh.1.75.4125 And of Vivaswat was born the lord Yama.
Mbh.1.75.4126 And Martanda Vivaswat also begat another son after Yama, gifted with great intelligence and named Manu.
Mbh.1.82.4595 Then Sarmishtha of sweet smiles seeing the monarch before her with nobody to witness what might pass, approached him and said with joined palms, O son of Nahusha, no one can behold the ladies that dwell in the inner apartments of Soma, of Indra, of Vishnu, of Yama, of Varuna, and of thee!
Mbh.1.100.5569 In wrath he was like Yama, and in patience like the Earth.
Mbh.1.125.6743 His appetite unsatiated, shall I not follow him in the region of Yama to gratify him?
Mbh.1.140.7459 And like a Makara entering the sea, the mighty-armed Bhima, resembling a second Yama, mace in hand, entered the Panchala ranks, fiercely roaring like the ocean in a tempest.
Mbh.1.153.8050 Else this very day, filled with wrath, I would send thee, O Duryodhana, to the regions of Yama Pluto with thy children and friends and brothers, and Karna, and Sakuni the son of Suvala!
Mbh.1.155.8151 Singly shall I send thee today to the abode of Yama Pluto.
Mbh.1.165.8531 And addressing Bhima he said, Who is this fool, who desiring to go to the abode of Yama, eateth in my very sight the food intended for me'
Mbh.1.175.8963 Afflicted at the loss of his sons, he did not, as though powerless, though really otherwise, do any dreadful act destructive of Viswamitra, Like the ocean transgressing not its continents, Vasishtha transgressed not the laws of Yama by bringing back his children from the domains of the king of the dead.
Mbh.1.188.9430 And there came also the celestials on their cars, with the Rudras and the Adityas, the Vasus and the twin Aswins, the Swadhas and all the Marutas, and Kuvera with Yama walking ahead.
Mbh.1.188.9449 Then when all those Kshatriyas gave up the task, the heroic king of the Chedis, mighty as Yama Pluto himself, the illustrious and determined Sisupala, the son of Damaghosa, in endeavouring to string the bow, himself fell upon his knees on the ground.
Mbh.1.190.9506 And with that tree, the strong-armed Bhima, the son of Pritha, that grinder of foes, stood, like unto the mace-bearing king of the dead Yama armed with his fierce mace, near Arjuna that bull amongst men.
Mbh.1.194.9652 Then when the assembled monarchs incapable of bearing that sight lose up in wrath and advanced for fight, there rose up another hero who tearing up a large tree rushed at that concourse of kings, felling them right and left like Yama himself smiting down creatures endued with life.
Mbh.1.198.9811 At that sacrifice, O king, Yama, the son of Vivaswat, became the slayer of the devoted animals.
Mbh.1.198.9812 Yama, thus employed in that sacrifice, did not during that period, O king, kill a single human being.
Mbh.1.198.9826 Strengthened by your respective energies, Yama will, when that time comes, sweep away by thousands the inhabitants on earth who will scarcely have then any energy left in them'
Mbh.1.206.10176 Who also that desireth to live can overcome in battle the twins Nagula and Sahadeva like unto the sons of Yama himself, and well-skilled in fight?
Mbh.1.211.10387 Assuming the forms of maddened elephants with temples rent from excess of juice, the Asura pair, searching out the Rishis who had sheltered themselves in caves, sent them to the region of Yama.
Mbh.1.228.11162 Yama, O king, took up the death-dealing mace, and Kuvera his spiked club, and Varuna his noose and beautiful missile.
Mbh.2.3.84 There Nara and Narayana, Brahma and Yama and Sthanu the fifth, perform their sacrifices at the expiration of a thousand yugas.
Mbh.2.6.297 I shall, however, describe unto thee the rooms of the king of the departed Yama, of Varuna Neptune of great intelligence, of Indra, the King of Gods and also of him who hath his home in Kailasha Kuvera.
Mbh.2.6.308 And who also upon Vasava, the Lord of the celestials and upon Yama, the son of Vivaswana?
Mbh.2.8.336 SECTION VIII Narada said, O Yudhisthira, I shall now describe the assembly house of Yama, the son of Vivaswat, which, O son of Pritha, was built by Viswakarma.
Mbh.2.8.347 In that mansion many royal sages of great sanctity and Brahmana sages also of great purity, cheerfully wait upon, O child, and worship Yama, the son of Vivaswat.
Mbh.2.8.350 And Agastya and Matanga, and Kala, and Mrityu Death, performers of sacrifices, the Siddhas, and many Yogins; the Prtris belonging to the classes, called Agniswattas, Fenapa, Ushampa, Swadhavat, and Verhishada, as also those others that have forms; the wheel of time, and the illustrious conveyer himself of the sacrificial butter; all sinners among human beings, as also those that have died during the winter solstice; these officers of Yama who have been appointed to count the allotted days of everybody and everything; the Singsapa, Palasa, Kasa, and Kusa trees and plants, in their embodied forms, these all, O king, wait upon and worship the god of justice in that assembly house of his.
Mbh.2.8.359 And hundreds of thousands of virtuous persons, of celestial beauty and great wisdom, always wait upon and worship the illustrious Yama, the lord of created beings in that assembly house.
Mbh.2.9.363 In dimensions it is similar to that of Yama.
Mbh.2.11.448 And Purandara the chief of the celestials, and Varuna and Kuvera and Yama, and Mahadeva accompanied by Uma, always repair thither.
Mbh.2.12.458 SECTION XII Yudhishthira said, O thou foremost of eloquent men, as thou hast described the different Sabhas unto me, it appeareth that almost all the monarchs of the earth are to be found in the Sabha of Yama.
Mbh.2.12.460 And so the Yakshas, the Guhyakas, the Rakshasas, the Gandharvas and Apsaras and the Deity Yama having the bull for his vehicle, are to be found in the Sabha of the lord of treasures.
Mbh.2.16.701 Yama himself cannot vanquish in battle the mighty host of Jarasandha that is endued, besides, with terrible valour.
Mbh.2.17.757 In glory he was like unto Suryya, in forgiveness like unto the Earth, in wrath like unto the destroyer Yama and in wealth like unto Vaisravana.
Mbh.2.22.1010 Go not, O king, with thy children and ministers and army, into the regions of Yama.
Mbh.2.22.1016 Either set free all the monarchs, or go thou to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.2.39.1601 O child, O thou foremost of all monarchs, this Sisupala possessed of little intelligence is desirous of taking along with him all these kings, through the agency of him who is the soul of the universe, to the regions of Yama.
Mbh.2.48.2008 And O king, the prosperity that I beheld of Yudhishthira was such that neither the chief himself of the celestials, nor Yama or Varuna, nor the lord of the Guhyakas owneth the same.
Mbh.2.55.2277 Neither sickness nor Yama waiteth till one is in prosperity.
Mbh.2.61.2494 Go not, O king, unto the region of Yama, with thy sons and troops, for who is there that is capable of fighting with the sons of Pritha, together?
Mbh.2.65.2667 Wretch, do not further provoke them lest thou goest to the region of Yama.
Mbh.2.66.2898 And Sudhanwan in rage, burning like unto the mace of Yama, told him, If thou answerest falsely, or dost not answer at all thy head will then be split into a hundred pieces by the wielder of the thunderbolt with that bolt of his,
Mbh.2.70.3067 And his face became terrible to behold in consequence of his furrowed brows like those of Yama himself at the time of the universal destruction.
Mbh.2.75.3216 And they also who from anger or covetousness are walking behind thee as thy protectors, them also shall I send to the abode of Yama with their descendants and relatives
Mbh.2.75.3232 And I will send unto the regions of Yama also all those other kings that will from foolishness fight against me.
Mbh.2.75.3240 Then, O monarch hearing these words of Sahadeva, Nakula the handsomest of men spake these words, I shall certainly send unto the abode of Yama all those wicked sons of Dhritarashtra, who desirous of death and impelled by Fate, and moved also by the wish of doing what is agreeable to Duryodhana, have used harsh and insulting speeches towards this daughter o Yajnasena at the gambling match.
Mbh.2.76.3269 Therefore, resolve thou earnestly to win victory, which belongeth to Indra; to control thy wrath, which belongeth to Yama; to give in charity, which belongeth to Kuvera; and to control all passions, which belongeth to Varuna.
Mbh.2.78.3355 And O monarch, Dhaumya goeth along the road, with kusa grass in hand, and uttering the aweful mantras of Sama Veda that relate to Yama'
Mbh.2.78.3369 And O Bharata, the learned Dhaumya with passions under full control, holding the kusa grass in his hand and pointing the same towards the south-west, walketh before, singing the mantras of the Sama Veda that relate to Yama.
Mbh.2.79.3450 And that mighty warrior amongst them, Bhimasena endued with surpassing strength, will also come back, whirling his mace like Yama himself with his club.
Mbh.3.3.196 Ravi, Gabhastimat, Aja, Kala, Mrityu, Dhatri, Prabhakara, Prithibi, Apa, Teja, Kha, Vayu, the sole stay, Soma, Vrihaspati, Sukra, Budha, Angaraka, Indra, Vivaswat, Diptanshu, Suchi, Sauri, Sanaichara, Brahma, Vishnu, Rudra, Skanda, Vaisravana, Yama, Vaidyutagni, Jatharagni, Aindhna, Tejasampati, Dharmadhwaja, Veda-karttri, Vedanga, Vedavahana, Krita, Treta, Dwapara, Kali, full of every impurity, Kala, Kastha, Muhurtta, Kshapa, Yama, and Kshana; Samvatsara-kara, Aswattha, Kalachakra, Bibhavasu, Purusha, Saswata, Yogin, Vyaktavyakta, Sanatana, Kaladhyaksha, Prajadhyaksha, Viswakarma, Tamounda, Varuna, Sagara, Ansu, Jimuta, Jivana, Arihan, Bhutasraya, Bhutapati, Srastri, Samvartaka, Vanhi, Sarvadi, Alolupa, Ananta, Kapila, Bhanu, Kamada, Sarvatomukha, Jaya, Visala, Varada, Manas, Suparna, Bhutadi, Sighraga, Prandharana, Dhanwantari, Dhumaketu, Adideva, Aditisuta, Dwadasatman, Aravindaksha, Pitri, Matri, Pitamaha, Swarga-dwara, Prajadwara, Mokshadwara, Tripistapa, Dehakarti, Prasantatman, Viswatman, Viswatomukha, Characharatman, Sukhsmatman, the merciful Maitreya.
Mbh.3.11.559 And like unto Maghavat hurling his thunderbolt, Bhima made that tree, resembling the mace of Yama himself descend with force on the head of the cannibal.
Mbh.3.11.563 Then the fierce Kirmira on his part, all on a sudden uprooting a tree darted to the encounter like unto the mace bearing Yama himself.
Mbh.3.11.583 Then Bhima, dragging along the earth the bruised body of the Rakshasa with the eye-lids about to close, said, O sinful wretch, thou wilt no more have to wipe away the tears of Hidimva or Vaka, for thou too art about to go to the mansions of Yama'
Mbh.3.12.614 O slayer of all foes, having floated on the primordial waters, thou subsequently becamest Hari and Brahma and Surya and Dharma, and Dhatri and Yama and Anala and Vasu, and Vaisravana, and Rudra, and Kala and the firmament the earth, and the ten directions!
Mbh.3.14.785 And Salwa also said, Impelled by wrath for the destruction of Sisupala I shall today send to the mansion of Yama that treacherous miscreant of mean mind'
Mbh.3.17.854 And over it stood a standard bearing the figure of a Makara with gaping mouth and fierce as Yama.
Mbh.3.22.1099 I launched with the might of my arms and in wrath with mantras, the great powerful discus Sudarsana which reduceth to ashes in battle Yakshas and Rakshasas and Danavas and kings born in impure tribes, sharp-edged like the razor, and without stain, like unto Yama the destroyer, and incomparable, and which killeth enemies.
Mbh.3.25.1194 The illustrious Rama was like unto Indra, the lord of Yama himself, and the slayer of Namuchi!
Mbh.3.27.1266 He Is even to foes, like unto Yama himself at the end of the Yuga!
Mbh.3.29.1351 The angry man may even send his own soul to the regions of Yama.
Mbh.3.36.1888 And let Arjuna, O son of Pandu, go unto Mahendra and Rudra, and Varuna, and Kuvera, and Yama, for receiving weapon from them.
Mbh.3.39.2034 As thou seekest to slay me, I shall certainly send thee to the abode of Yama'
Mbh.3.39.2055 The Kirata replied, This Rakshasa, first struck with the shot from my bow, was killed and sent to the regions of Yama by me.
Mbh.3.39.2075 Whether he is a god or a Yaksha, in fact, anybody except Rudra, I shall soon send him, with my shafts, to the regions of Yama'
Mbh.3.39.2084 Slaying him with the end of my bow, as elephants are killed with lances, I shall send him to the domains of the mace-bearing Yama'
Mbh.3.40.2155 Neither the chief himself of the gods, nor Yama, nor the king of the Yakshas, nor Varuna, nor Vayu, knoweth it.
Mbh.3.40.2162 Mahadeva then imparted unto that best of Pandu's son the knowledge of that weapon looking like the embodiment of Yama, together with all the mysteries about hurling and withdrawing it.
Mbh.3.41.2185 And there came also Yama himself, of great beauty, the powerful destroyer of all the worlds, accompanied by those lords of the creation, the Pitris, both embodied and disembodied.
Mbh.3.41.2191 Then Yama possessed of great intelligence, and fully conversant with virtue, who had occupied a summit on the south, in a voice deep as that of the clouds, said these auspicious words, Arjuna, behold us, the protectors of the worlds, arrive here!
Mbh.3.41.2204 Vaisampayana continued, O Janamejaya, the son of Pritha then received from Yama that weapon duly, along with the Mantras and rite, and the mysteries of hurling and withdrawing it.
Mbh.3.41.2212 Even if Yama himself by thy foe, with these in thy hands, he will not be able to escape from thee.
Mbh.3.41.2214 Vaisampayana continued, After both Varuna and Yama had given away their celestial weapons, the lord of treasures having his home on the heights of Kailasa, then spake, O son of Pandu, O thou of great might and wisdom, I too have been pleased with thee.
Mbh.3.55.2750 I am Indra, this one is Agni, this the lord of waters, and this, O king, is even Yama the destroyer of the bodies of men.
Mbh.3.55.2752 The gods, Sakra and Agni and Varuna and Yama, desire to obtain thee.
Mbh.3.55.2782 The celestials, Sakra, Agni, Varuna and Yama, desire to have thee.
Mbh.3.57.2862 And Yama granted him subtle taste in food as well as pre-eminence in virtue.
Mbh.3.91.4910 And, O Yudhishthira, Arjuna of immeasurable prowess hath also acquired Vajras and Dandas and other celestial weapons from Yama and Kuvera and Varuna and Indra, O son of the Kuru race!
Mbh.3.96.5068 For whomsoever Ilwala summoned with his voice, he would come back to Ilwala even if he had gone to the abode of Yama, in re-embodied form endued with life, and show himself to Ilwala.
Mbh.3.118.6065 Then the king beheld the holy and delightful shrines of all the gods and of the Vasus, and of the hosts of wind and of the two celestial physicians and of Yama, son of the sun and of the lord of riches, and of Indra, and of Vishnu, and of the lord Creator and of Siva, and of the moon, and of the author of day, and of the lord of waters, and of the host of Sadhyas, and of Brahma, and of the forefathers, and of Rudra together with all his followers, and of the goddess of learning, and of the host of Siddhas, and of many immortal holy gods besides.
Mbh.3.134.6810 Thereat Vandin said, One only fire blazeth forth in various shapes; one only sun illumineth this whole world; one only hero, Indra, the lord of celestials, destroyeth enemies; and one only Yama is the sole lord of the Pitris
Mbh.3.134.6860 Vandin said, It is with thy sharpened axe, O monarch, that even Yama severeth the heads of foes.
Mbh.3.137.7013 to that very hermitage, destructive to thee as the god of death himself, Yama, didst thou repair.
Mbh.3.139.7081 May king Varuna and Yama, conqueror of battles, and Ganga, and Yamuna, and this mountain, and the Maruts and the twin Aswins, and all rivers and lakes, vouchsafe thy safety.
Mbh.3.140.7146 Distressed for I am I do not see that son of Pritha, Dhananjaya, born under the influence of the star Phalguni; ranging amidst foes even like Yama at the time of the universal dissolution; possessed of the prowess of an elephant with the temporal juice trickling down; endued with leonine shoulders; not inferior to Sakra himself in prowess and energy; elder in years to the twins; of white steeds; unrivalled in heroism; invincible; and wielding a strong bow.
Mbh.3.141.7208 O child, in days of yore, there was once a terrible time in the Krita Yuga when the eternal and primeval Deity assumed the duties of Yama.
Mbh.3.141.7209 And, O thou that never fallest off, when the God of gods began to perform the functions of Yama, there died not a creature while the births were as usual.
Mbh.3.146.7491 If thou do not listen to my bidding, I shall send thee to the abode of Yama
Mbh.3.146.7496 Being thus addressed by Hanuman, Bhima proud of the strength of his arms, took him for one wanting in energy and prowess, and thought within himself, Taking fast hold of the tail, will I send this monkey destitute of energy and prowess, to the region of Yama'
Mbh.3.153.7765 Thereupon that one of great force, taking his ponderous and mighty mace inlaid with golden plates, like unto the mace of Yama himself, turned towards those, and then said, Stay'
Mbh.3.154.7807 And on seeing the high-souled Bhima, standing on the shore of that lake in an angry mood, and with steadfast eyes, and biting his lip, and stationed on the shore of the lake with his mace upraised by his two hands, like unto Yama with his mace in his hand at the time of the universal dissolution.
Mbh.3.156.7899 To day will I offer oblations of thy blood to those Rakshasas who, I had heard, have been slain by thee in fight' Thus addressed, Bhima, as if bursting with wrath, like unto Yama himself at the time of the universal dissolution, rushed towards the Rakshasa, licking the corners of his mouth and staring at him as he struck his own arms with the hands.
Mbh.3.162.8218 And that lord of all living beings, king Yama, conversant with duty, presideth over yonder southern region whither come the spirits of the departed.
Mbh.3.163.8271 And Arjuna, having dwelt for five years in the abode of him of a thousand eyes, and having from that lord of celestials obtained all the celestial weapons, such as those of Agni, of Varuna, of Soma, of Vayu, of Vishnu, of Indra, of Pasupati, of Brahma, of Parameshthi, of Prajapati, of Yama, of Dhata, of Savita, of Tvashta, and of Vaisravana; and having bowed down to and gone round him of a hundred sacrifices, and taken his Indra's permission, cheerfully came to the Gandhamadana
Mbh.3.167.8393 And I saw Yama seated on the south and Varuna and the lord of the celestials at their respective regions.
Mbh.3.170.8573 I began to send them to the mansion of Yama.
Mbh.3.171.8593 And entering amongst those Danavas that had carried away the steeds of the car into the interior of the earth, the shafts sent them into the mansion of Yama.
Mbh.3.177.8798 And it was the terror of all animated beings and it looked like the very image of the Destroyer Yama; and with the hissing noise of its breath it lay as if rebuking an in-comer.
Mbh.3.188.9449 I am king Vaisravana, and I am Yama, the lord of the deceased spirits.
Mbh.3.199.10125 O king, they that give unto guests water to wash their feet, butter to rub over their tired legs, light during the hours of darkness, food, and shelter, have not to go before Yama.
Mbh.3.199.10152 They that give away lakes and large pieces of water, and tanks and wells, and shelter and food and they that have sweet words for all, have not to hear the admonitions of Yama.
Mbh.3.199.10167 And men and women and all on earth that have life, are forcibly led along this way by the messengers of Yama.
Mbh.3.199.10182 And water hath this excellent property that it produceth happiness in the region of Yama.
Mbh.3.230.11612 And the terrible-looking Yama too in company with Death marched with him.
Mbh.3.233.11828 Know them all, O Krishna, that did thee any injury while thou wert afflicted, to have already gone to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.3.234.11864 The wielder of the Gandiva and Vrikodara, when angry, are like Yama and Kala themselves; scattering their shafts, which are like unto thunder-bolts, they exterminate in battle the ranks of the enemy.
Mbh.3.235.11900 Surrounded by the Kurus, O king, like Yama by the Rudra, or Vasava by the Maruts, thou shinest, O monarch, like the Moon among the stars!
Mbh.3.238.12009 Return ye soon to where that king of the Kurus is, or else go this very day to the abode of Yama'
Mbh.3.243.12127 And in that encounter, the mighty Arjuna, by means of his Agneya weapon, sent ten hundreds of thousands of Gandharvas to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.3.263.12876 Methinks thou art a goddess, or a Yakshi, or a Danavi, or an excellent Apsara, or the wife of a Daitya, or a daughter of the Naga king, or a Rakshasi or the wife of Varuna, or of Yama, or of Soma, or of Kuvera, who, having assumed a human form, wanderest in these forests.
Mbh.3.289.14098 And Sakra and Agni and Vayu, and Yama and Varuna and the illustrious Lord of the Yakshas, and the holy Rishis, and king Dasaratha also in a celestial and effulgent form and on car drawn by swans, showed themselves.
Mbh.3.295.14408 Thereat, Yama replied, O Savitri, thou art ever devoted to thy husband, and thou art also endued with ascetic merit.
Mbh.3.295.14410 Do thou, O auspicious one, know me for Yama.
Mbh.3.295.14417 And Yama said, This prince is endued with virtues and beauty of person, and is a sea of accomplishments.
Mbh.3.295.14420 Saying this, Yama by main force pulled out of the body of Satyavan, a person of the measure of the thumb, bound in noose and completely under subjection.
Mbh.3.295.14422 And binding Satyavan's vital essence, Yama proceeded in a southerly direction.
Mbh.3.295.14423 Thereupon, with heart overwhelmed in grief, the exalted Savitri, ever devoted to her lord and crowned with success in respect of her vows, began to follow Yama.
Mbh.3.295.14424 And at this, Yama said, Desist, O Savitri!
Mbh.3.295.14439 Hearing these words of hers, Yama said, Do thou desist!
Mbh.3.295.14445 Yama said, O thou of faultless features, I grant thee this boon!
Mbh.3.295.14457 Yama said, These words that thou hast spoken, so fraught with useful instruction, delight the heart and enhance the wisdom of even the learned.
Mbh.3.295.14463 Then Yama said, The king shall soon regain his kingdom.
Mbh.3.295.14470 Therefore it is, O god, O divine one, that people call thee Yama!
Mbh.3.295.14476 Yama said, As water to the thirsty soul, so are these words uttered by thee to me!
Mbh.3.295.14480 Yama said, Thy sire, O auspicious lady, shall obtain a hundred illustrious sons, who will perpetuate and increase their father's race!
Mbh.3.295.14494 And hearing these words, Yama said, The words that thou utterest, O fair lady, I have not heard from any one save thee; I am highly pleased with this speech of thine.
Mbh.3.295.14498 Hearing these words of hers, Yama replied, Thou shalt, O lady, obtain a century of sons, possessed of strength and prowess, and causing thee great delight, O daughter of a king, let no more weariness be thine!
Mbh.3.295.14512 Hearing these words of hers, Yama replied, The more thou utterest such speeches that are pregnant with great import, full of honeyed phrases, instinct with morality, and agreeable to mind, the more is the respect that I feel for thee!
Mbh.3.295.14523 Markandeya continued, Thereupon saying, So be it, Vivaswat's son, Yama, the dispenser of justice, untied his noose, and with cheerful heart said these words to Savitri, Thus, O auspicious and chaste lady, is thy husband freed by me!
Mbh.3.295.14532 And having bestowed these boons on Savitri and having thus made her desist, Yama departed for his abode.
Mbh.3.295.14533 Savitri, after Yama had gone away, went back to the spot where her husband's ash-coloured corpse lay, and seeing her lord on the ground, she approached him, and taking hold of him, she placed his head on her lap and herself sat down on the ground.
Mbh.3.295.14538 That restrainer of creatures, the worshipful Yama, had gone away.
Mbh.3.296.14668 And after he had fallen asleep, Yama, accompanied by his messengers, presented himself before him, and tying him, began to take him away towards the region inhabited by the Pitris.
Mbh.3.311.15251 Who, therefore, save Yama himself who in due time bringeth about the end of all things, could have baffled them thus'
Mbh.3.311.15469 Day after day countless creatures are going to the abode of Yama, yet those that remain behind believe themselves to be immortal.
Mbh.4.16.699 Thereupon Draupadi answered, Even others will slay him, even they whom he hath wronged, I think it is clear that he will have to go to the abode of Yama this very day
Mbh.4.21.871 And the intelligent and faultless Savitri also followed the heroic Satyavan, the son of Dyumatsena, alone into the world of Yama.
Mbh.4.22.998 And overthrown by the powerful Kichaka, Bhima quickly rose up like Yama himself with mace in hand.
Mbh.4.23.1050 And taking up that tree with trunk and branches and measuring ten Vyamas, that mighty hero rushed towards the Sutas, like Yama himself, mace in hand.
Mbh.4.23.1055 And beholding the tree that had been uprooted by Bhimasena, they set Draupadi free and ran breathlessly towards the city And seeing them run away, Bhima, that mighty son of the Wind-god, despatched, O foremost of kings, by means of that tree, a hundred and five of them unto the abode of Yama, like the wielder of the thunderbolt slaying the Danavas.
Mbh.4.30.1241 They have either disappeared for good or have gone to the abode of Yama?
Mbh.4.33.1342 Seeing Bhima like unto Yama himself in his rear, saying, Stay!
Mbh.4.33.1354 And Kunti's son Yudhishthira slew a thousand of the foe, and Bhima showed the abode of Yama unto seven thousand.
Mbh.4.45.1760 Trained in arms by the preceptor Drona, by Sakra, and Vaisravana, and Yama, and Varuna, and Agni, and Kripa, and Krishna of Madhu's race, and by the wielder of the Pinaka Siva, why shall I not fight with these?
Mbh.4.47.1831 If, for the cattle we have seized, an encounter takes place with the divine wielder himself of the thunderbolt or even with Yama, who is there that will be liable to reach Hastinapura?
Mbh.4.50.1948 The destroyer of all, named Yama, and Vayu, and the horse-faced Agni, leave some remnant behind, but Dhananjaya inflamed with wrath never doth so.
Mbh.4.56.2165 And there shone in a splendid array, each in its proper place the cars of Agni and Isa and Soma and Varuna and Prajapati and Dhatri and Vidhatri and Kuvera and Yama, and Alamvusha and Ugrasena and others, and of the Gandharva Tumburu.
Mbh.4.60.2353 And then the warriors that followed the son of Radha rushed in crowds at Arjuna, but Partha sent them all to the abode of Yama by means of arrows shot from the Gandiva.
Mbh.4.63.2470 And those illustrious warriors ranged on the field of battle, using the celestials weapons obtained from Prajapati and Indra, and Agni and the fierce Rudra, and Kuvera, and Varuna, and Yama, and Vayu.
Mbh.5.3.79 If, however, they do not bow at the feet of the wise Yudhishthira, then they and their partisans must go to the regions of Yama.
Mbh.5.3.83 And who, having regard for his life, would come near the twin brothers who firmly grasp their bows and resemble the death-dealing Yama in intelligence?
Mbh.5.3.84 Who would approach Dhrishtadyumna, the son of Drupada, or these five sons of the Pandavas who have added lustre to Draupadi's name, rivalling their fathers in valour, equal to them in every respect and full of martial pride, or him of the powerful bow, Subhadra's son, irresistible by even the gods themselves; or Gada, or Pradyumna, or Samva, resembling Yama or the thunderbolt or fire?
Mbh.5.16.738 Salya continued, While that best of Angira's race was thus speaking, there came that guardian of the world, Kuvera, and also Yama the son of Surya, and the old god Soma, and Varuna.
Mbh.5.16.746 You and the ruler of the waters, and Yama, and Kuvera shall this day be crowned along with me.
Mbh.5.16.751 Salya continued, Thus did the illustrious lord Indra, the chastiser of Paka, the giver of boons, bestow, after deliberation upon Kuvera the sovereignty over the Yakshas, and all the wealth of the world; upon Yama, the sovereignty over the Pitris; and upon Varuna, that over the waters'
Mbh.5.18.782 And the illustrious Agni, and the great saint Vrihaspati, and Yama, and Varuna, and Kuvera, the lord of riches, accompanied him.
Mbh.5.20.854 The latter endeavoured in various ways to remove the sons of Pandu from their path by employment even of murderous contrivances; but as their destined terms of life had not wholly run out, the sons of Pandu could not be sent to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.5.29.1227 Similarly, the constellations in the other world, by virtue of work, and the Rudras, the Adityas, the Vasus, king Yama, and Kuvera, and the Gandharvas, the Yakshas, and the celestial nymphs, all attained their present position by work.
Mbh.5.35.1788 The preceptor controlleth them whose souls are under their own control; the king controlleth persons that are wicked; while they that sin secretly have their controller in Yama, the son of Vivaswat.
Mbh.5.37.1909 The envoys of Yama, with nooses in hand, drag those persons to hell.
Mbh.5.40.2182 O king, hope killeth patience; Yama killeth growth; anger killeth prosperity; miserliness killeth fame; absence of tending killeth cattle; one angry Brahmana destroyeth a whole kingdom.
Mbh.5.42.2247 Besides this, some imagine Yama to be Death.
Mbh.5.42.2250 That imaginary god Yama holdeth his sway in the region of the Pitris, being the source of bliss to the virtuous and of woe to the sinful.
Mbh.5.42.2266 Ignorance, assuming the form of Yama, cannot devour that learned man who controlled his desires in this manner.
Mbh.5.48.2681 Indeed, when he will behold Bhimasena, who always fighteth in the van, accoutred in mail, scarcely capable of being looked at even by his own followers felling hostile heroes and devastating the enemy's ranks like Yama himself, then will the exceedingly vain Duryodhana recollect these words.
Mbh.5.51.2889 Indeed, Vrikodara, that bull among the Kurus, whirling his mace in battle, will, like a second Yama mace in hand slay all my sons who are afflicted by a heavy calamity.
Mbh.5.55.3069 A single blow, O king, that I may wrathfully deal unto Bhima will certainly, O hero, carry him without delay to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.5.55.3080 When united together, they will, within a moment, send Arjuna to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.5.58.3221 O king, performing, in honour of Yama, such a sacrifice in battle, the ingredients of which will all be furnished by ourselves, we will return victoriously covered with glory, after having slain our foes.
Mbh.5.65.3413 Alas, like a tree defying the mighty tempest, thou chafest at Bhimasena who hath not his peer among men in might and who is equal unto Yama himself in battle.
Mbh.5.100.4702 They were incapable of being vanquished by Sakra or any other celestial, that is, by either Yama, or Varuna, or the Lord of treasures Kuvera.
Mbh.5.109.5011 This quarter is called the second door of Yama.
Mbh.5.117.5285 And the royal sage then sported with her, as Surya with Prabhavati, Agni with Swaha, Vasava with Sachi, Chandra with Rohini, Yama with Urmila, Varuna with Gauri, Kuvera with Riddhi, Narayana with Lakshmi, Sagara with Jahnavi, Rudra with Rudrani, the Grandsire with Saraswati, Vasishtha's son Saktri with Adrisyanti, Vasishtha with Arundhati called also Akshamala, Chyavana with Sukanya, Pulastya with Sandhya, Agastya with the princess of Vidarbha Lopamudra, Satyavan with Savitri, Bhrigu with Puloma, Kasyapa with Aditi, Richika's son Jamadagni with Renuka, Kusika's son Viswamitra with Himavati, Vrihaspati with Tara, Sukra with Sataprava, Bhumipati with Bhumi, Pururavas with Urvasi, Richika with Satyavati, Manu with Saraswati, Dushyanta with Sakuntala, the eternal Dharma with Dhriti, Nala with Damayanti, Narada, with Satyavati, Jaratkaru with Jaratkaru, Pulastya with Pratichya, Urnayus with Menaka, Tumvuru with Rambha, Vasuki with Satasirsha, Dhananjaya with Kamari, Rama with the princess of Videha Sita, or Janardana with Rukmini.
Mbh.5.130.5779 If Janardana wisheth, he can send all of them, even if they fight in a body, unto the abode of Yama, like an enraged lion dispatching a herd of elephants.
Mbh.5.143.6384 All the kings and princes following the lead of Duryodhana, consumed by the fire of weapons will proceed to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.5.151.6773 It is this Dhrishtadyumna, I think, that will be able to bear Bhishma's arrows which strike with the vehemence of the thunderbolt and look like snakes with blazing mouths, which resemble the messengers of Yama in speed, and fall like flames of fire consuming everything they touch, and which were borne before by Rama alone in battle.
Mbh.5.159.7056 Having paid my respects, for battle's sake, to Rudra, Sakra, Vaisravana, Yama, Varuna, Pavaka, Kripa, Drona, and Madhava, and wielding that tough celestial bow of great energy called Gandiva, and accoutred with inexhaustible arrows and armed with celestial weapons, how can a person like me, O tiger among men, say, even unto Indra armed with the thunderbolt, such words as I am afraid,
Mbh.5.163.7357 If Yama himself, or Kuvera, or Rudra, assisteth thee, the Pandavas will still accomplish what they have vowed!
Mbh.5.167.7547 Like a couple of elephant leaders sporting in the midst of their herds, these two princes, O monarch, longing for battle, will range the field, each like Yama himself.
Mbh.5.168.7581 Endued with innumerable qualities, this smiter of fierce effulgence will wander over the field of battle, incapable of being withstood like Yama himself, mace in hand.
Mbh.5.168.7609 Never retreating from battle, brave, and resembling Yama himself, Vahlika, O king, is in my judgment, an Atiratha.
Mbh.5.170.7713 Dhananjaya himself is the warrior who fighteth from it; his, again, is that celestial bow called Gandiva; he owneth again those steeds fleet as the wind; his coat of mail is impenetrable and of celestial make; his two large quivers are inexhaustible; his arms have been obtained from the great Indra, Rudra, Kuvera, Yama and Varuna; and upon his car, again, are those maces of frightful mien, and diverse other great weapons having the thunderbolt amongst them!
Mbh.6.34.1603 I am Ananta among Nagas, I am Varuna among acquatic beings, I am Aryaman among the Pitris, and Yama among those that judge and punish
Mbh.6.35.1691 Thou art Vayu, Yama, Agni, Varuna, Moon, Prajapati, and Grandsire.
Mbh.6.48.2504 Deprived of his senses by anger, O king, the son of Virata, then, smiling, joyfully took up a mace for Bhishma's slaughter, with eyes red in wrath, and resembling a second Yama armed with mace, he rushed against Bhishma like a swollen torrent against the rocks.
Mbh.6.50.2602 Enraged Yama himself, or He armed with the thunder, or even Varuna noose in hand, or Kuvera armed with mace, may be vanquished in battle but the mighty car-warrior Bhishma, of great energy is incapable of being vanquished.
Mbh.6.54.2842 And combatant on foot, excited with rage, all alone, and like Yama at the season of universal dissolution, he struck terror into his foes and confounded those brave warriors.
Mbh.6.54.2873 And he also despatched Satyadeva and Satya to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.6.62.3392 Indeed, O Bharata, putting forth his strength on all sides, mace in arms, we beheld Bhimasena then to resemble Sankara himself dancing at the end of the Yuga, and his fierce, heavy, and sounding mace to resemble the club of Yama and possessed of the sound of Indra's bolt.
Mbh.6.63.3410 And with the bodies of slain men and cavalry lying scattered about, the field of battle wore the appearance of the abode of Yama.
Mbh.6.75.3993 Deeply pierced by Bharadwaja's son in that conflict, Bhima despatched Drona's charioteer to the region of Yama.
Mbh.6.80.4171 And with four shafts he despatched Duryodhana's four steeds to the regions of Yama.
Mbh.6.80.4222 And with his arrows he began to despatch the combatants of the Panchalas to the domains of Yama.
Mbh.6.84.4385 O monarch, this great and awful destruction of the world, swelling the population of the domains of Yama, hath arisen from thy misconduct and that of thy sons.
Mbh.6.84.4396 Iravat then, O monarch, with four shafts, despatched the four steeds of Anuvinda to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.6.84.4424 Having vanquished in battle that hero of great valour and renowned prowess, who, O king, cannot be vanquished in battle by Yama himself or Varuna, king Bhagadatta with his elephant began to crush down the troops of the Pandavas like a wild elephant.
Mbh.6.84.4430 Then Salya, that mighty car-warrior, smiting effectively in that battle, despatched with four excellent shafts, O king, the four steeds of Nakula to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.6.88.4651 And the warriors of the Kaurava and the Pandava hosts, coming upon one another in that conflict, despatched one another with diverse kinds of shafts to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.6.89.4688 Then, O monarch, excited with rage, Bhima, with another straight shaft, despatched Vahvasin towards the abode of Yama.
Mbh.6.90.4714 That conduct hath now borne fruit, inasmuch as Bhimasena, excited with wrath, despatcheth, day after day in battle, my insensate sons to the abode of Yama
Mbh.6.90.4732 That foremost of car-warriors, viz, Drona excited with wrath, rushed against the Somakas and the Srinjayas, desirous of sending them to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.6.90.4737 And so the mighty Bhimasena, excited with wrath, and like unto a second Yama, caused a terrible carnage amongst the Kaurava troops.
Mbh.6.91.4811 Those two thousand accomplished smiters advancing with rage, were however, soon sent to the regions of Yama, falling in the encounter with Iravat's forces.
Mbh.6.95.5003 Beholding those two warriors advance, each like Yama as he shows himself at the end of the Yuga, the mighty-armed Bhimasena, quickly taking up a mace, and jumping down from his car without loss of time, stood immovable like a hill, with that heavy mace resembling the very club of Yama, upraised in battle.
Mbh.6.97.5176 And seizing one another's laches, they despatched one another to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.6.102.5436 Those sharp shafts resembling the rods of Yama himself, shot by him, pierced Abhimanyu through and entered the earth.
Mbh.6.108.5760 Indeed, the angry Yama is capable of being vanquished, or even the chief of the celestials armed with the thunder, or Varuna himself, noose in hand, or the Lord of the Yakshas armed with mace.
Mbh.6.108.5857 The wielder of the thunder-bolt may be vanquished or Varuna, or Yama.
Mbh.6.108.5891 Even thus shall he go to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.6.112.6086 And he then hurled at his foe, in that dreadful battle, a tough dart, made wholly of iron, decked with gold and stones of lapis lazuli, and fierce as the rod of Yama himself.
Mbh.6.113.6189 O son, he is, in battle, equal to Yama or Varuna himself
Mbh.6.114.6204 Possessed of the splendour of Yama himself, as he appears at the end of the Yuga, Bhimasena then, with three arrows, despatched unto Death's domain the steeds of the ruler of the Sindhus as also his charioteer.
Mbh.7.1.38 Even thus was he classed during the counting of Rathas and Atirathas, he that is the foremost of all Rathas and Atirathas, he that is respected by all heroes, he that would venture to fight even with Yama, Kuvera, Varuna, and Indra.
Mbh.7.2.77 That force in which are the twins, each resembling Yama himself, that force in which are Satyaki and the son of Devaki, that force is like the jaws of Death.
Mbh.7.6.188 As Kapali amongst the Rudras, Pavaka among the Vasus, Kuvera among the Yakshas, Vasava among the Maruts, Vasishtha among Brahmanas, the Sun amongst luminous bodies, Yama among the Pitris, Varuna among aquatic creatures, as the Moon among the stars, and Usanas among the sons of Diti, so art thou the foremost of all leaders of forces.
Mbh.7.8.269 Beholding that hero of regulated vows, felling them like Yama himself inflamed with wrath, the soldiers of Yudhishthira fled away on all sides.
Mbh.7.8.280 Then with their elephants and foot-soldiers and steeds he began to despatch them unto the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.10.377 The foremost among the Panchalas, possessed of heroism, high-born and the favourite of all high-born heroes, ever achieving good deeds in battle, viz, Uttamaujas, that Prince ever engaged in the welfare of Arjuna, born for only my evil, equal unto Yama, or Vaisaravana, or Aditya, or Mahendra, or Varuna, that prince regarded as a mighty car-warrior and prepared to lay down his life in the thick of battle, O, what heroes of my army surrounded him?
Mbh.7.14.564 And it carried away thousands of mighty-car-warriors to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.21.1017 And that river ran towards the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.21.1033 And he despatched Vasudeva with a broad-headed arrow to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.23.1125 Each resembling Yama or Vaisravana, they proceeded to battle, striking fear into the hearts of the hostile soldiers.
Mbh.7.25.1347 Seeing that feat of Partha resembling that of Vasava himself, Madhava wondered much and, addressing him with joined hands, said, Verily, O Partha, I think that this feat which thou hast achieved, could not be performed by Sakra, or Yama, or the Lord of treasures himself.
Mbh.7.38.1924 Having said these words, that mighty-armed warrior, that slayer of hostile heroes, aimed a shaft endued with the splendour of Yama or of Agni or of the Wind-god, capable of despatching Duhsasana to the other world.
Mbh.7.38.1932 Seeing that implacable and proud foe of theirs thus vanquished, those mighty car-warriors, viz, the five sons of Draupadi, who had on their banners the images of Yama and Maruta and Sakra and the twin Aswins, and Satyaki, and Chekitana, and Dhrishtadyumna, and Sikhandin, and the Kekayas, and Dhrishtaketu, and the Matsyas, Panchalas, and the Srinjayas, and the Pandavas headed by Yudhishthira, were filled with joy.
Mbh.7.43.2059 Penetrating into the Katirava host, O king, that destroyer of foremost Kshatriyas resembling Yama himself, seized Satvasravas, like an infuriated tiger seizing a deer.
Mbh.7.52.2472 That Regent of the world, viz, Yama, and the diverse disease shall become thy helpmates.
Mbh.7.67.2908 Yama, the son of Vivaswat, became their calf, and the Destroyer Antaka their milker.
Mbh.7.70.3024 The favourite son of that daughter of the Vrishni race, always cherished by me, alas, if I do not see him I will repair to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.70.3025 With locks ending in soft curls, of tender years, with eyes like those of a young gazelle, with tread like that of an infuriated elephant, tall like a Sala offshoot, of sweet speech accompanied with smiles, quiet, ever obedient to the behest of his superiors, acting like one of mature years though tender in age, of agreeable speech, reft of vanity, of great courage and great energy, of large eyes resembling lotus-petals, kind to those devoted to him, self-restrained, following nothing mean, grateful, possessed of knowledge, accomplished in weapons, unretreating from battle, always delighting in fight, and enhancing the fears of foes, engaged in the welfare of kinsmen, desirous of victory into sires, never striking first, perfectly fearless in battle, alas, if I do not behold that son, I will repair to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.70.3026 In the counting of car-warriors always reckoned as a Maharatha, superior to me one and a half times, of tender years, of mighty arms, even dear to Pradyumna and Kesava and myself, alas, if I do not behold that son I will repair to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.70.3037 Without doubt, that abode of Yama, which is always the goal of persons of righteous deeds, that delightful mansion, illuminated today by thy own splendours, is rendered exceedingly beautiful by thee.
Mbh.7.70.3038 Without doubt, Yama and Varuna and Satakratu and Kuvera, obtaining thee as a favourite guest, are making much of thy heroic self.
Mbh.7.72.3140 Reflecting for a while in the presence of those gods among men, Jayadratha, in fear of Abhimanyu's father and covered with shame, said these words, He who in Pandu's soil was begotten by Indra under the influence of desire, that wicked wretch is thinking of despatching me to the abode of Yama!
Mbh.7.72.3144 Drona and Duryodhana and Kripa, and Karna, and the ruler of the Madras, and Valhika, and Dussasana and others, are capable of protecting a person who is afflicted by Yama himself.
Mbh.7.74.3237 Men will behold in tomorrow's battle those weapons which I have obtained from Yama and Kaurva and Varuna and Indra and Rudra!
Mbh.7.75.3269 And as if for gladdening the cannibals, on that occasion foreboding a great accession of population to the domain of Yama, the animals on the field began to eject urine and excreta, and utter loud cries of woe.
Mbh.7.82.3631 I shall, therefore, go thither where the ruler of the Sindhus waiteth for the display of my energy and in expectation of repairing to the regions of Yama.
Mbh.7.90.4082 And that river of blood flowed towards the region of Yama, and the bodies of stain elephants floating on it, obstructed its current.
Mbh.7.105.4868 Then the son of Arjuna, filled with rage, despatched with keen shafts, the four steeds of Saumadatti to the region of Yama.
Mbh.7.110.5263 And, O monarch, with his shafts that resembled blazing flames of fire, he despatched many other heroes, kings of diverse realms, unto the region of Yama.
Mbh.7.122.6023 Him also, Drona, smiling, despatched to the abode of Yama by means of his shafts, like a huge and mighty tiger in the deep woods slaying an infant deer.
Mbh.7.122.6039 Indeed, all these tigers among men fell with their utmost might upon the illustrious Drona, desirous of despatching him to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.124.6214 Then the son of Kunti, smiling the while, despatched by means of his shafts thy son Vinda and Anuvinda and Suvarman to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.126.6312 And then with a broad-headed arrow, he despatched Karna's charioteer to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.129.6468 The field of battle where they fought soon became awful like the domain of Yama.
Mbh.7.130.6508 Cutting off that dart, resembling a snake just freed from its slough, Bhima, O sire, as if on the lookout for taking the life-breath of the Suta's son, sped, in great wrath, many shafts in that battle that were equipped with peacock-feathers and golden wings and each of which, whetted of' stone, resembled the rod of Yama.
Mbh.7.130.6517 Then Bhima once more cut Karna's bow at the handle, O sire, and despatched by means of his shafts the latter's steeds, white as conchs, to the abode of Yama, and the son of Pandu also felled his enemy's charioteer from his niche in the car.
Mbh.7.132.6574 Why did they provoke the fire in battle, of that hero of cruel deeds, that warrior resembling Yama himself as the latter becomes at the end of the Yuga?
Mbh.7.136.6788 Then the mighty-armed and heroic Bhima, excited with rage, shot at Adhiratha's son an arrow resembling the rod of Yama or Death himself.
Mbh.7.139.6958 Slain by me in battle, thou shalt today proceed to the abode of Yama, like Ravana's son Indrajit slain by Lakshmana, the younger brother of Rama.
Mbh.7.150.7847 Resolved to go to the other world, the Panchalas and the Kauravas fought with one another for admission into the swelling domains of Yama.
Mbh.7.151.7938 All these, however, O king, that advanced right against the illustrious Drona, were either obliged to turn back or despatched to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.152.7981 Then Bhima, smiling the while, despatched in that battle, with his shafts, the driver and the steeds of Durmada unto the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.153.8206 Then, O king, Drona's son despatched Srutayus to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.154.8250 Indeed, with his shafts, Yudhishthira began to despatch to the regions of Yama the Amvashthas, the Malavas, the brave Trigartas and the Sivis.
Mbh.7.163.8838 Then that crusher of foes, viz, the mighty car-warrior Aswatthaman, recovering his senses, forcibly drawing the bow with his left hand, stretching the bowstring to his ear, quickly shot a terrible shaft resembling the rod of Yama himself, aiming at Ghatotkacha.
Mbh.7.165.8905 The ruler of the Madras, however, piercing the advancing Satanika with many shafts, despatched him to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.169.9160 And it resembled, O king, the Vaitarani that flows, O lord, towards the domains of Yama.
Mbh.7.173.9449 Among those thousands of kings on the Pandava side, O sire, there was not a single one, O monarch, that could even look at Karna then, save the mighty Ghatotkacha, that prince of Rakshasas, who was endued with terrible energy and strength, and who, inflamed with rage, then looked like Yama himself.
Mbh.7.178.9708 Neither Vasava, nor Varuna the lord of the waters, nor Yama, could venture to approach him.
Mbh.7.181.9852 Karna, and my sons, as all the other kings, through his highly impolitic act, have already entered the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.183.10037 Neither the Lord of treasures, nor Indra, nor Yama, nor the Asuras, the Uragas, and the Rakshasas can stay Arjuna armed with weapons.
Mbh.7.184.10117 Then that grinder of foes, viz, the son of Bharadwaja, with a couple of well-tempered and broad-headed shafts, despatched both Drupada and Virata unto the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.185.10166 Others, encountering these two proceeded to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.7.192.10664 In speed he is equal to the wind itself and he careens in the thick of fight like Yama in rage.
Mbh.7.196.10962 Seeing the mighty Satyaki rushing, from wrath and desire of revenge, at the Panchala prince, like Yama against one like his own self, the mighty Bhima, urged by Vasudeva, quickly jumped down from his car and seized him with his arms.
Mbh.7.198.11167 Then the mighty-armed Bhima sped ten gold-decked arrows, of great keenness and resembling the darts of Yama himself, at his foe.
Mbh.7.198.11294 Everything that is done for propitiating Indra, and Yama, and Varuna, and Kuvera and Pitris and Tvashtri, and Soma, is really offered to thee.
Mbh.7.199.11431 And making the Mandara mountains the bow, Vasuki the bowstring, Vishnu his excellent shaft, Agni the arrow-head, and Vayu the two wings of that shafts, Yama the feathers in its tail, lightning the whetting stone, and Meru the standard, Siva, riding on that excellent car which was composed of all the celestial forces, proceeded for the destruction of the triple city.
Mbh.7.199.11467 He is Kala, he is Antaka, he is Mrityu, he is Yama
Mbh.7.199.11518 And since, afflicting Brahma and Indra and Varuna and Yama and Kuvera, he destroyeth them ultimately, he is for that reason called Hara.
Mbh.8.5.139 Many thousands of Srenis, as also the samsaptakas, approaching Arjuna, have all repaired to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.8.6.189 Dhrishtaketu, O monarch, that foremost of car-warriors among the Cedis, after accomplishing the most difficult feats, hath repaired to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.8.10.366 Irresistible as Yama himself, he is quite competent to vanquish our foes in battle
Mbh.8.14.560 That great bowman then, filled with rage, rushed, shooting his shafts, against that army, like Yama filled with fury, against all creatures at the time of the universal dissolution.
Mbh.8.19.809 Like Yama himself slaying creatures whose lives have run out, Pandya, that foremost of warriors skilled in shafts and weapons, was destroying crowds of foes by means of diverse kinds of shafts.
Mbh.8.22.930 Nakula, however, causing Sahadeva to desist, himself afflicted the ruler of the Angas with three long shafts, each resembling the rod of Yama, and his foe's elephant with a hundred arrows.
Mbh.8.24.1012 With four keen shafts, next, he quickly despatched the four steeds of Nakula, O Bharata, to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.8.27.1158 Without any delay he then, with a number of other shafts, despatched Candradeva to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.8.29.1275 Beholding him armed with that uplifted mace and resembling Yama himself with his bludgeon, king Yudhishthira the just hurled at thy son a mighty dart blazing with splendour, endued with great impetuosity, and looking like a large blazing brand.
Mbh.8.30.1301 Then Duryodhana singly proceeded against that mighty car-warrior who was angry and irresistible and resembled a veritable Yama, striking him with his straight shafts.
Mbh.8.37.1973 If Yama, Varuna, Kuvera, and Vasava, with all their followers coming hither, unitedly protect the son of Pandu in this great battle, what need of many words, I will still vanquish him with them
Mbh.8.42.2311 Know this, O Shalya, that I would not take fright at Yama himself armed with his rod, or Varuna himself armed with his noose, or Kuvera himself armed with his mace, or Vasava himself armed with the thunderbolt, or at any other foe whatever that may approach for slaying me.
Mbh.8.45.2464 The pitris dwell in the South that is presided over by Yama of righteous deeds.
Mbh.8.51.2880 Then Bhima, without losing a moment, despatched Kratha to the abode of Yama, with a long arrow of keen point.
Mbh.8.51.2906 With one arrow he then cut off Bhimasena's standard, and with another broad-headed arrow he despatched Bhima's driver to the presence of Yama.
Mbh.8.52.2984 Those awful rivers led to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.8.56.3208 While the son of Radha was thus engaged with the Pandavas, Bhimasena, filled with rage, began to slaughter the Kurus with shafts, every one of which resembled the lord of Yama.
Mbh.8.59.3404 Endued with great activity, the valiant son of Drona then, O monarch, said these words unto Dhrishtadyumna staying not far from him, O wretch amongst the Pancalas, I shall today despatch thee to Yama.
Mbh.8.61.3591 Having slain his four steeds, the valiant Sahadeva then despatched his foe's driver to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.8.64.3769 The Srinjayas then, thus slaughtered in battle by the Suta's son, repeatedly called upon Arjuna and Vasudeva like the spirits of the dead within Yama's dominions calling upon Yama to rescue them.
Mbh.8.66.3851 In prowess he was equal unto Yama.
Mbh.8.70.4108 Possessed of great might and resembling Kuvera and Yama, he destroyeth the hostile army, putting forth his strength.
Mbh.8.74.4484 Today, O Krishna, unbarbed arrows, impelled by my arms and sped from the gandiva, mangling Karna, will take him to Yama.
Mbh.8.76.4566 I will despatch all these Dhartarashtras to the presence of Yama
Mbh.8.77.4659 Displaying his lightness of hands, Bhima began to cut and mangle that host with his fierce arrows and despatch large numbers to the abode of Yama.
Mbh.8.77.4679 Warriors constituting its crocodiles and alligators, it ran towards the region of Yama.
Mbh.8.81.4968 Then, O Bharata, thy troops, beholding Bhima mace in hand, thought that Yama himself, armed with his fatal bludgeon, was in their midst.
Mbh.8.85.5198 With eyes red in wrath, that hero capable of slaying Yama himself if the latter fought with him, then laughed terribly and said unto Karna and all the other Kaurava heroes headed by Duryodhana and Drona's son, these words, Today, O Karna, in thy very sight in this battle, I will despatch the fierce Vrishasena unto Yama's abode with my keen arrows!
Mbh.8.87.5301 The celestials, however, with the pitris, and with all that were numbered with them as also with their followers, and Yama and Vaishravana and Varuna were on the side of Arjuna.
Mbh.8.87.5366 Decked with rows of little bells, hard as iron, and resembling the fatal noose in the hands of Yama or Varuna, the elephant's rope, filled with wrath, closed with the Ape.
Mbh.8.90.5664 But Arjuna also as will appear in the sequel did not return from that battle without causing the snake to succumb to the power of Yama.
Mbh.8.91.5855 Shot by me, let this arrow possessed of the splendour of fire or the sun take Karna to the presence of Yama
Mbh.8.92.5893 In consequence of those mighty warriors, and steeds, and elephants huge as hills, having been slain after coming into contact with one another, thy host looks like the domains of Yama.
Mbh.8.92.5899 Brave kings, who in energy, courage, and might, were equal to Kuvera or Yama or Vasava or the Lord of the waters, who were possessed of every merit, who were almost unslayable, and who were desirous of achieving thy object, have in battle been slain by the Pandavas.
Mbh.8.93.5977 When the destroyer Yama spareth neither the hero nor the coward, who is there so foolish of understanding, although observant of a Kshatriya's vow like us, that would not fight.
Mbh.8.94.5994 Covered also with the corpses of men and steeds and elephants as also with crushed cars and other huge elephants with their trunks and limbs cut off, the earth has become awful to look at like the great Vaitarani skirting the domains of Yama.
Mbh.9.3.178 Armed then with that heavy mace of his that was made entirely of iron and adorned with gold and equipped with a sling, and that resembled the Destroyer himself as he becomes at the end of Yuga, Bhima slew them all like Yama slaughtering creatures with his club.
Mbh.9.11.693 Resembling the very bludgeon of Yama, impending upon the head of the foe like kala-ratri Death Night, exceedingly destructive of the lives of elephants and steeds and human beings, twined round with cloth of gold, looking like a blazing meteor, equipped with a sling, fierce as a she-snake, hard as thunder, and made wholly of iron, smeared with sandal-paste and other unguents like a desirable lady, smutted with marrow and fat and blood, resembling the very tongue of Yama, producing shrill sounds in consequence of the bells attached to it, like unto the thunder of Indra, resembling in shape a snake of virulent poison just freed from its slough, drenched with the juicy secretions of elephants, inspiring hostile troops with terror and friendly troops with joy, celebrated in the world of men, and capable of riving mountain summits, that mace, with which the mighty son of Kunti had in Kailasa challenged the enraged Lord of Alaka, the friend of Maheshvara, that weapon with which Bhima, though resisted by many, had in wrath slain a large number of proud Guhyakas endued with powers of illusion on the breasts of Gandhamadana for the sake of procuring Mandara flowers for doing what was agreeable to Draupadi, uplifting that mace which was rich with diamonds and jewels and gems and possessed of eight sides and celebrated as Indra's thunder, the mighty-armed son of Pandu now rushed against Shalya.
Mbh.9.17.1051 King Yudhishthira the just, in that battle, carefully hurled that dart which resembled kala-ratri the Death Night armed with the fatal noose or the foster-mother of fearful aspect of Yama himself, and which like the Brahmana's curse, was incapable of being baffled.
Mbh.9.24.1654 With the keen shafts, resembling the fatal rods of Yama, sped by those two warriors, the Earth, the sky, and all the points of the compass, became shrouded.
Mbh.9.25.1729 Fixing then on his bowstring a mighty arrow that resembled the rod of Yama, Partha, smiling the while, quickly sped it at Susarman, aiming it at him.
Mbh.9.30.2207 Slain by me today, you shall, with the Pancalas, have to repair to the abode of Yama'
Mbh.9.43.3096 And there came also Kala, Yama, Mrityu, and the followers of Yama.
Mbh.9.43.3109 Then Yama gave him two companions, both of whom resembled Death, Unmatha and Pramatha, possessed of great energy and great splendour.
Mbh.9.44.3245 Possessed of great strength, some amongst them partook of the nature of Yama, some of Rudra, some of Soma, some of Kuvera, some of Varuna, some of Indra, and some of Agni, O scorcher of foes.
Mbh.9.48.3521 Of equal attitude towards the agreeable and the disagreeable, he was, like Yama himself, thoroughly impartial.
Mbh.9.48.3552 Devala saw him then proceed to the region of Yama.
Mbh.9.51.3736 They, again, that will, in expectation of good, reside constantly here, will never have to visit the region of Yama.
Mbh.9.55.3938 The spectators, O king, beheld each armed with his uplifted mace, that was heavy, fierce, and murderous, and that resembled the bludgeon of Yama or the thunder-bolt of Indra.
Mbh.9.59.4318 Similarly, the son of Dhritarashtra, though fatigued when armed with the mace, could not be slain in fair fight by Yama himself armed with his bludgeon!
Mbh.9.63.4556 Without doubt, it is difficult to learn the ways of Yama, since thou, O lord of all the worlds, thus liest on the bare ground, stained with dust!
Mbh.9.63.4591 I shall today, in the very presence of Vasudeva, despatch all the Pancalas, by all means in my power, to the abode of Yama?
Mbh.10.8.462 I shall enter the camp and career like Yama.
Mbh.10.8.509 Of terrible form, he careered in the camp like Yama himself, and at last saw the sons of Draupadi and the remnant of the Somakas.
Mbh.10.8.550 That foremost of smiters, the son of Drona, despatched to regions of Yama all those Pandus and Srinjayas who were without armour and weapons.
Mbh.10.10.793 Obediently accepting that command of the king who equalled Yama himself in righteousness, Nakula speedily proceeded on his car to the quarters of Draupadi where that princess resided with all the wives of the Pancala king.
Mbh.10.13.905 A fire then was born in that blade of grass, which seemed capable of consuming the three worlds like the all-destroying Yama at the end of the yuga
Mbh.11.5.210 Such was the aspect of that forest that Yama himself would take fright at it.
Mbh.11.7.291 This body is called the car of Yama.
Mbh.12.5.190 In consequence of a Brahmana's curse, as also of the curse of the illustrious Rama, of the boon granted to Kunti and the illusion practised on him by Indra, of his depreciation by Bhishma as only half a car-warrior, at the tale of Rathas and Atirathas, of the destruction of his energy caused by Salya with his keen speeches, of Vasudeva's policy, and, lastly of the celestial weapons obtained by Arjuna from Rudra and Indra and Yama and Varuna and Kuvera and Drona and the illustrious Kripa, the wielder of Gandiva succeeded in slaying Vikartana's son Karna of effulgence like that of Surya himself.
Mbh.12.7.219 Filled with envy and a hankering for all earthly objects, and influenced by wrath and pleasure, all of them, betaking themselves to the highway of Death, have repaired to the regions of Yama.
Mbh.12.33.1733 Not beholding their sires and brothers and husbands and sons, those ladies, through affliction, casting off their life-breath, will go to the abode of Yama, O foremost of Brahmanas!
Mbh.12.52.2800 Awaking when half a Yama was wanting to usher in the day, he addressed himself to contemplation.
Mbh.12.56.3038 The king should administer justice like Yama and amass wealth like Kuvera.
Mbh.12.67.3755 He becomes Agni, Aditya, Mrityu, Vaisravana, and Yama.
Mbh.12.67.3759 When he restrains the wicked by inflicting upon them severe punishments and favours the righteous by bestowing rewards upon them, he is then said to assume the form of Yama.
Mbh.12.71.4066 The king is Yama.
Mbh.12.81.4593 This, O king, was said by Yama.
Mbh.12.90.5146 The king is Yama himself.
Mbh.12.90.5151 Yama governs all creatures without observing distinctions.
Mbh.12.90.5173 This is the way in which Vasava, and Yama, and Varuna, and all the great royal sages have acted.
Mbh.12.97.5445 Cut, Pierce, and such other sounds, that are heard in the front ranks of the array, constitute the Samans sung by its Vedic chanters in the abode of Yama.
Mbh.12.115.6526 Of a cruel disposition and always filled with delight at the prospect of prey, the fierce animal looked like a second Yama.
Mbh.12.121.6900 Yama the son of Vivaswat was made the lord of the Pitris.
Mbh.12.121.6909 Time, possessing the seeds of both destruction and growth, was made the sovereign of all creatures as also of the four portions of Death viz, weapons, diseases, Yama, and acts and lastly of grief and joy.
Mbh.12.128.7279 Bhishma said, In this connection is cited the old narrative of the discourse between Gotama and the illustrious Yama.
Mbh.12.128.7283 One day, the Regent of the world, Yama, O tiger among men, repaired to that great sage of cleansed soul while he was engaged in the severest austerities.
Mbh.12.128.7284 Yama beheld the great ascetic Gotama of rigid penances.
Mbh.12.128.7285 The regenerate sage understanding that it was Yama who had come, speedily saluted him and sat with joined hands in an attentive attitude waiting for his commands.
Mbh.12.128.7289 Yama said, Devoting one's self to the duty of truth, and practising purity and penances one should ceaselessly worship one's mother and father.
Mbh.12.137.7822 Beholding the individual who resembled a messenger of Yama, the cat became filled with fear.
Mbh.12.138.8239 The lord of all creatures, viz, Manu, has said that the king has seven attributes: he is mother, father, preceptor, protector, fire, Vaisravana and Yama.
Mbh.12.138.8243 By scorching the wicked he comes to be regarded as fire, and by restraining the sinful he comes to be called Yama.
Mbh.12.142.8705 He looked like Yama himself.
Mbh.12.149.8929 If thou thinkest, O king, that this world is nothing and that the next world is the shadow of a shadow, the myrmidons of Yama in the infernal regions will convince thee, dispelling thy unbelief
Mbh.12.150.8937 Verily, I am much afraid of Yama.
Mbh.12.154.9291 Even Indra, or Yama, or Vaisravana, the lord of the waters, is not equal to the god of the wind in might.
Mbh.12.169.10158 When Gautama had laid himself down, the eloquent son of Kasyapa, who resembled Yama himself in his knowledge of duties, asked him a bout the cause of his arrival there.
Mbh.12.195.11723 Bhishma said, In this connection is cited the old history of what transpired between Yama, Time, and a certain Brahmana.
Mbh.12.198.11788 SECTION CXCIX Yudhishthira said, Thou hadst referred to the dispute between Time, Mrityu, Yama, Ikshvaku, and a Brahmana.
Mbh.12.198.11819 and Yama also will all approach thy presence.
Mbh.12.198.11848 Dharma said, If thou dost not wish to cast off thy body, behold, O regenerate one, there is Time, and there is Mrityu, and there is Yama, who are all approaching thee'
Mbh.12.198.11849 Bhishma continued, After Dharma had said this, Vivaswat's son Yama, Time, and Mrityu, the trio who snatch away all creatures from the earth, approached that Brahmana, O blessed king, and addressed him thus'
Mbh.12.198.11850 Yama said, I am Yama.
Mbh.12.198.11910 These, viz, Dharma and Time, and Yama, and Mrityu, are witnesses of the act of gift'
Mbh.12.199.12092 Bhishma said, The Brahmana, saying, Let it be as thou hast said, worshipped Dharma and Yama and Time and Mrityu and Heaven, all of whom were worthy of worship.
Mbh.12.206.12514 And he made Yama the ruler of the Pitris and of all sinful men
Mbh.12.206.12518 In those times, men lived as long as they chose to live, and were without any fear of Yama.
Mbh.12.234.14525 The mighty river of Time, overspread with eddies constituted by the years, having the months for its waves and the seasons for its current, the fortnights for its floating straw and grass, and the rise and fall of the eyelids for its froth, the days and the nights for its water, and desire and lust for its terrible crocodiles, the Vedas and sacrifices for its rafts, and the righteousness of creatures for its islands, and Profit and Pleasure for its springs, truthfulness of speech and Emancipation for its shores, benevolence for the trees that float along it, and the yugas for the lakes along its course, the mighty river of Time, which has an origin as inconceivable as that of Brahma itself, is ceaselessly bearing away all beings created by the great Ordainer towards the abode of Yama
Mbh.12.243.15036 One in the observance of Sannyasa should not feel reluctant in discharging the duties included in Yama and those also that walk behind them and are included in niyama.
Mbh.12.261.15866 Surya, Chandramas, the god of wind, Brahman, Prana, Kratu, and Yama these dwell in living creatures, There are men that live by trafficking in living creatures!
Mbh.12.268.16386 In cremating his body after death, in the matter of his attainment of a second body, in that of his drink and food after such attainment, in that of giving away kine and other animals for helping him to cross the river that divides the region of life from that of Yama, in that of sinking funeral cakes in water, Vedic mantras are necessary.
Mbh.12.279.17117 He is Brahma; He is the highest Righteousness; He is Sat and He is Asat He is Sruti; He is the scriptures; He is the Sacrificial vessel; He is the six and ten Ritwijes; He is all the Sacrifices; He is the Grandsire Brahman; He is Vishnu; He is the twin Aswins; and He is Purandara He is Mitra; He is Varuna; He is Yama; He is Kuvera the lord of treasures.
Mbh.12.284.17699 Thou art Indra, thou art Yama, thou art the Giver of boons, thou art the Lord of wealth, and thou art Agni.
Mbh.12.284.17765 Thou art of swift speed, thou art the Moon, thou art Yama the universal destroyer, thou bearest without flinching cold and heat and hunger and weakness and disease.
Mbh.12.299.18732 The sacrifices that one performs in anger, the gifts one makes in anger, the penances one undergoes in anger, and the offerings and libations one makes to the sacred fire in anger, are such that their merits are robbed by Yama.
Mbh.12.300.18815 Neither Yama, nor the Destroyer, nor Death himself of terrible prowess, when angry, ever succeeds in prevailing over the Yogin, O king, who is possessed of immeasurable energy.
Mbh.12.301.18878 Knowing that this body, that is endued with six and ten possessions, is the result of the quality of Sattwa, understanding fully the nature of the physical organism and the character of the Chetana that dwells within it, recognising the one existent Being that live in the body viz, the Soul, which stands aloof from every concern of the body and in which no sin can attach, realising the nature of that second object, viz; the acts of persons attached to the objects of the senses, understanding also the character of the senses and the sensual objects which have their refuge in the Soul, appreciating the difficulty of Emancipation and the scriptures that bear upon it knowing fully the nature of the vital breaths called Prana, Apana, Samana, Vyana, and Udana, as also the two other breaths, viz, the one going downward and the other moving upward indeed, knowing those seven breaths ordained to accomplish seven different functions, ascertaining the nature of the Prajapatis and the Rishis and the high paths, many in number, of virtue or righteousness, and the seven Rishis and the innumerable royal Rishis, O scorcher of foes, and the great celestial Rishis and the other regenerate Rishis endued with the effulgence of the Sun, beholding all these falling away from their puissance in course of many long ages, O monarch, hearing of the destruction of even of all the mighty beings in the universe, understanding also the inauspicious end that is attained, O king, by creatures of sinful acts, and the miseries endured by those that fall into the river Vaitarani in the realms of Yama, and the inauspicious wanderings of creatures through diverse wombs, and the character of their residence in the unholy uterus in the midst of blood and water and phlegm and urine and faeces, all of foul smell, and then in bodies that result from the union of blood and the vital seed, of marrow and sinews, abounding with hundreds of nerves and arteries and forming an impure mansion of nine doors, comprehending also what is for his own good what those divers combinations are which are productive of good beholding the abominable conduct of creatures whose natures are characterised by Darkness or Passion or Goodness, O chief of Bharata's race, conduct that is reprehended, in view of its incapacity to acquire Emancipation, by the followers of the Sankhya doctrine who are fully conversant with the Soul, beholding the swallowing up of the Moon and the Sun by Rahu, the falling of stars from their fixed positions and the diversions of constellations from their orbits, knowing the sad separation of all united objects and the diabolical behaviour of creatures in devouring one another, seeing the absence of all intelligence in the infancy of human beings and the deterioration and destruction of the body, marking the little attachment creatures have to the quality of Sattwa in consequence of their being overwhelmed by wrath and stupefaction, beholding also only one among thousands of human beings resolved to struggle after the acquisition of Emancipation, understanding the difficulty of attaining to Emancipation according to what is stated in the scriptures, seeing the marked solicitude that creatures manifest for all unattained objects and their comparative indifference to all objects that have been attained marking the wickedness that results from all objects of the senses O king and the repulsive bodies, O son of Kunti, of persons reft of life, and the residence, always fraught with grief, of human beings, O Bharata, in houses in the midst of spouses and children, knowing the end of those terrible and fallen men who become guilty of slaying Brahmanas, and of those wicked Brahmanas that are addicted to the drinking of alcoholic stimulants, and the equally sad end of those that become criminally attached to the spouses of their preceptors, and of those men, O Yudhishthira, that do not properly reverence their mothers, as also of those that have no reverence and worship to offer to the deities, understanding also, with the help of that knowledge which their philosophy imparts, the end that of all perpetrators of wicked acts, and the diverse ends that overtake those who have taken birth among the intermediate orders, ascertaining the diverse declarations of the Vedas, the courses of seasons, the fading of years, of months, of fortnights, and of days, beholding directly the waxing and the waning of the Moon, seeing the rising and the ebbing of the seas, and the diminution of wealth and its increase once more, and the separation of united objects, the lapse of Yugas, the destruction of mountains, the drying up of rivers, the deterioration of the purity of the several orders and the end also of that deterioration occurring repeatedly, beholding the birth, decrepitude, death, and sorrows of creatures, knowing truly the faults attaching to the body and the sorrows to which human beings are subject, and the vicissitudes to which the bodies of creatures are subject, and understanding all the faults that attach to their own souls, and also all the inauspicious faults that attach to their own bodies the followers of the Sankhya philosophy succeed in attaining to Emancipation.
Mbh.12.316.19728 In the first Yama of the night, twelve ways of holding the breath are recommended.
Mbh.12.316.19729 Alter sleep, in the last Yama of the night, other twelve ways of doing the same have been laid down.
Mbh.12.320.20083 If men leading the domestic mode of life be endued with Yama and Niyama, they become the equals of Sannyasins.
Mbh.12.321.20419 They that fall away from righteousness and that conduct themselves recklessly, that always display malice towards others and betake themselves to evil ways are obliged to assume physical bodies in the regions of Yama and suffer diverse afflictions, in consequence of their unrighteous acts of diverse kind
Mbh.12.321.20433 Soon after death thou art sure to be taken before Yama at his command.
Mbh.12.321.20435 The puissant Yama, regardless of the sufferings of others, very soon takes the lives of all persons, that is of thyself and thy friends.
Mbh.12.321.20437 Very soon the wind of Yama will blow before thee and drive thee to his presence.
Mbh.12.321.20465 To the regions of Yama one has to go oneself, unaccompanied by any one.
Mbh.12.321.20474 The road in the other world that leads to the regions of Yama, is infested by many foes in the form of iron-beaked birds and wolves and by many repulsive and terrible insects and worms.
Mbh.12.321.20489 When men have to go individually and without companions to the region of Yama, it is plain that in view of such a situation of terror, thou shouldst seek to acquire that one only treasure viz, Righteousness or Yogasamadhi.
Mbh.12.321.20490 The puissant Yama, regardless of the afflictions of others, snatches, away the friends and relatives of one's race by the very roots.
Mbh.12.328.20937 That wind which takes away the life of all living creatures when the proper hour comes, whose track is followed by Death and Surya's son Yama, which becomes the source of that immortality which is attained by Yogins of subtile sight who are always engaged in Yoga meditation, by whose aid the thousands of grandsons of Daksha, that lord of creatures, by his ten sons, succeeded in days of old in attaining to the ends of the universe, whose touch enables one to attain to Emancipation by freeing oneself from the obligation of returning so the world, that wind is called by the name of Paravaha.
Mbh.12.334.21394 Brahman, Sthanu, Manu, Daksha, Bhrigu, Dharma, Yama, Marichi, Angiras, Atri, Pulastya, Pulaha, Kratu, Vasishtha, Parameshthi, Vivaswat, Shoma, he that has been called Karddama, Krodha, Avak, and Krita, these one and twenty persons, called Prajapatis, were first born.

Mbh.12.346.22949 He Is the great receptacle of all those ordinances that should be practised for attaining to tranquillity of heart, as also of all those that go by the name of Yama.
Mbh.12.363.23898 Firmly resolved, that Brahmana, instructed, by the chief of Nagas in this way about his duty, betook himself to the practice of Yama and Niyama, and subsisting the while upon such food as was allowed by the Unccha vow, proceeded to another forest
Mbh.13.16.1609 Thou art the Grandsire Brahma, thou art Bhava, thou art Vishnu, thou art Skanda, thou art Indra, thou art Savitri, thou art Yama, thou art Varuna, Soma, thou art Dhatri, thou art Manu, thou art Vidhatri and thou art Kuvera, the Lord of treasures.

Mbh.13.17.1974 Thou art he who covers that illusion which covers Yama
Mbh.13.17.2767 The illustrious Narayana, numbered among the Sadhyas and possessed of glory that knows no diminution, communicated it to Yama.
Mbh.13.17.2768 Vaivaswat Yama communicated it to Nachiketa.
Mbh.13.25.3475 One who lives by the side of the tirtha known by the name of Kanya-hrada has never to go to the regions of Yama.
Mbh.13.45.4763 Persons acquainted with the histories of olden times, conversant with duties, devoted to the scriptures and firm in maintaining the restraints therein laid down, recite in this connection some metrical lines sung in days of yore by Yama.
Mbh.13.45.4764 Even this is what Yama had sung.
Mbh.13.62.5998 Mrityu, Vaikinkara, Danda, Yama, Fire who is possessed of great fierceness, and all heinous and terrible sins are incapable of touching the person that makes a gift of earth.
Mbh.13.62.6057 Those men have never to go to Yama who honour and worship those foremost of Brahmanas that pour libations every day on their domestic fire, that are always engaged in the performance of sacrifices, that have scanty means of livelihood, and that receive with hospitality every guest seeking shelter in their abodes The king, O Purandara, should free himself from the debt he owes to the Brahmanas and protect the helpless and the weak belonging to the other orders.
Mbh.13.68.6401 Bhishma said, In this connection, O Yudhishthira, is recited the narrative of the discourse that took place in ancient times between a Brahmana and Yama.
Mbh.13.68.6405 One day, Yama, the ruler of the dead, commanded a messenger of his, who was clad in black, endued with blood-red eyes and hair standing erect, and possessed of feet, eyes, and nose all of which resembled those of a crow, saying, Go thou to the town inhabited by Brahmanas and bring hither the person known by the name of Sarmin and belonging by birth to the race of Agastya.
Mbh.13.68.6414 Attacking that person, he brought him who had been forbidden by Yama to be brought.
Mbh.13.68.6415 Possessed of great energy, Yama rose up at the sight of the Brahmana and worshipped him duly.
Mbh.13.68.6419 Yama said, I cannot ascertain the exact period, ordained by Time, of one's life, and hence, unurged by Time, I cannot allow one to take up one's residence here.
Mbh.13.68.6425 Yama said, Do thou hear, O regenerate Rishi, the excellent ordinances regarding gifts.
Mbh.13.68.6443 Bhishma continued, After Yama had said these words unto him, the messenger who had borne him from his abode conveyed him back to it.
Mbh.13.68.6445 Having thus conveyed him back to his abode the messenger of Yama fetched Sarmin who had really been sought by Yama.
Mbh.13.68.6448 Unto him also Yama gave the same instructions.
Mbh.13.68.6449 Sarmin, too, coming back into the world of men, did all that Yama had said.
Mbh.13.68.6450 Like the gift of water, Yama, from a desire of doing good to the Pitris, applauds the gift of lamps to light dark places.
Mbh.13.70.6547 Worshipping me duly Yama addressed me, saying, The end cannot be ascertained, O king, of thy deed.
Mbh.13.70.6556 Though fallen down I still could hear the words that Yama said unto me very loudly.
Mbh.13.71.6582 Afflicted as he then was with hunger, thirst, and fatigue, the Rishi Uddalaki of high ascetic merit, in a sudden wrath, cursed his son, saying, Do thou meet with Yama today'
Mbh.13.71.6595 Thus asked by high-souled father, Nachiketa who had seen every thing with his own eyes, made the following answer unto him in the midst of the Rishis, In obedience to thy command I proceeded to the extensive region of Yama which is possessed of a delightful effulgence.
Mbh.13.71.6597 As soon as Yama beheld me approaching with face towards him, he commanded his attendants saying, Give him a good seat, verily, the king of the dead, for thy sake worshipped we with the Arghya and the other ingredients'
Mbh.13.71.6598 Thus worshipped by Yama and seated in the midst of his counsellors, I then said mildly, I have come to thy abode, O judge of the dead!
Mbh.13.71.6600 Yama then answered me, saying, Thou art not dead, O amiable one'
Mbh.13.71.6601 Endued with penances, thy father said unto thee, Do thou meet with Yama!
Mbh.13.71.6612 Thus addressed by me, Yama caused me to be mounted upon a vehicle of splendour as effulgent as that of the sun and unto which were harnessed many excellent steeds.
Mbh.13.71.6628 Yama answered me saying, These streams of milk and ghee, know thou, are for the enjoyment of those righteous persons, that make gifts in the world of men.
Mbh.13.71.6651 Questioned by me, the wise Yama answered, explaining further what the end is that is attainable by making gifts of kine.
Mbh.13.71.6665 And, O great Rishi, the righteous Yama, filled with joy, repeatedly told me, One, who, by making frequent gifts, has succeeded in acquiring purity of mind should then make gifts of kine specially.
Mbh.13.71.6700 I then bowed my head unto the righteous Yama.
Mbh.13.79.7140 By giving away a cow of the complexion of smoke, with a calf similar to herself, yielding milk, free from every vice, and covered with a piece of cloth, one attains to great honours in the region of Yama.
Mbh.13.80.7184 By giving away a Kapila cow having large horns, accompanied by a calf and a vessel of white brass for milking her, and covered with a piece of cloth, one succeeds in entering, freed from fear, the palace of Yama that is so difficult to enter.
Mbh.13.86.7944 The gods numbering three and thirty, the points of the compass in their embodied forms together with the deities presiding over them, and Rudra and Dhatri and Vishnu and Yama and Pushan and Aryaman and Bhaga, and Angas and Mitra and the Sadhyas and Vasava and the Vasus and the Aswins and the Waters and the Wind and the Firmament and Chandramas and all the Constellations and the Planets and Surya, and all the Ricks and Samans and Yajuses in their embodied forms, came there to behold that wonderful child who was the son of the deity of blazing flames.
Mbh.13.89.8034 SECTION LXXXIX Bhishma continued, Listen to me, O Yudhishthira, as I tell thee what those optional Sraddhas are that should be performed under the different constellations and that were first spoken of by Yama unto king Sasavindu
Mbh.13.97.8746 He should make sacrificial offerings in due order; to Yama in the Southern region, to Varuna in Western region, to Soma in the Northern region, to Prajapati within the homestead, to Dhanwantari in the North-eastern region, and to Indra in the Eastern region.
Mbh.13.101.9027 Indeed, O son, they who purchase Soma and they who sell it, both sink in the hell called Raurava when, departing from this world, they repair to the region of Yama.
Mbh.13.102.9080 Gautama said, O illustrious king, repairing even to that region of Yama where the righteous live in joy and the sinful in grief, I shall take from thee this my elephant'
Mbh.13.102.9081 Dhritarashtra said, They that are destitute of religious acts, they that have no faith and are atheists, they that are of sinful souls and are always engaged in gratifying their senses, only they have to go to the region of Yama and endure the misery he inflicts.
Mbh.13.102.9083 Gautama said, The region of Yama is such that men are there controlled.
Mbh.13.104.9412 Persons conversant with ancient history recite a Gatha sung by Yama in days of old.
Mbh.13.111.9965 Vrihaspati said, Earth, Wind, Ether, Water, Light, Mind, Yama the king of the dead, Understanding, the Soul, as also Day and Night, all together behold as witnesses the merits and demerits of all living creatures.
Mbh.13.111.9989 After birth, the Jiva receives woe and death from the messengers of Yama.
Mbh.13.111.9994 Endued with unrighteousness, the Jiva has to go to the dominions of Yama and suffering great misery there, he has to take birth in an intermediate order of being Listen to me as I tell thee what the different acts are by doing which the diva, stupefied by folly, has to take birth in different orders of being, as declared in the Vedas, the scriptures, and the sacred histories.
Mbh.13.111.9995 Mortals have to go to the frightful regions of Yama.
Mbh.13.111.9998 Indeed, there are spots of these kinds in the abode of Yama which so far as its happier regions are concerned is equal to the region of Brahman himself in merits.
Mbh.13.111.10082 The man who becomes guilty of ingratitude O king, has to go to the regions of Yama and there to undergo very painful and severe treatment at the hands of the messengers, provoked to fury, of the grim king of the dead.
Mbh.13.111.10083 Clubs with heavy hammers and mallets, sharp-pointed lances, heated jars, all fraught with severe pain, frightful forests of sword-blades, heated sands, thorny Salmalis, these and many other instruments of the most painful torture such a man has to endure in the regions of Yama, O Bharata!
Mbh.13.111.10123 That man of little understanding who kills a woman has to go the regions of Yama and to endure diverse kinds of pain and misery.
Mbh.13.125.10827 Yama of stainless deeds, with the aid of vows well-observed and Yoga meditation, had acquired the knowledge of these mysteries as the high fruits of his penances
Mbh.13.125.10828 What pleases what deity, what pleases the Pitris, the Rishis, the Pramathas associates of Mahadeva, the goddess Sri, Chitragupta the recording assistant of Yama, and the mighty Elephants at the cardinal points of the compass, what constitutes the religion of the Rishis, the religion, which has many mysteries and which is productive of high fruits, the merits of what are called great gifts, and the merits that attach to all the sacrifices, he who knows these, O sinless one, and knowing acts according to his knowledge, becomes freed from stains if he has stains and acquires the merits indicated.
