(
Dronabhisheka
Parva
)
Having
bowed
down
to
Narayana
and
Nara,
the
foremost
of
male
beingt,
as
also
to
the
goddess
Saraswati,
must
the
word
Jaya
be
uttered.
Janamejaya
said,
"Hearing
that
his
sire
Devavrataof
unrivalled
vigour
and
sturdiness,
and
might,
energy
and
prowess,
had
been
slain
by
Sikhandin,
theprince
of
the
Panchalas,
what,
indeed,
O
regenerate
Rishi,
did
the
powerful
king
Dhritarashtra
with
eyes
bathed
in
tears
do?
illustrious
one,
his
son
(Duryodhana)
wished
for
sovereignty
after
vanquishing
those
mighty
bowmen,
viz.,
the
sons
of
Pandu,
through
Bhishma
and
Drona
and
other
great
car-warriors.
Tell
me,
O
thou
that
hast
wealth
of
asceticism,
all
that
he,
of
Kuru's
race,
did
after
that
chief
of
all
bowmen
had
been
slain."
Vaisampayana
said,
"Hearing
that
his
sire
had
been
slain,
kingDhritarashtra
of
Kuru's
race
filled
with
anxiety
and
grief,
obtained
no
peace
of
mind.
And
while
he,
of
Kuru's
race,
was
thus
continually
brood-
ing
over
that
sorrow,
Gavalgana's
son
of
pure
soul
once
morecame
to
him.
Then,
O
monarch,
Dhritarashtra,
the
son
of
Amvika,
addressed
Sanjaya,
who
had
that
night
come
back
from
the
camp
to
the
city
called
after
theelephant.
With
a
heart
rendered
exceedingly
cheerless
in
consequence
ofhis
having
heard
of
Bhish
ma's
fall,
and
desirous
of
the
victory
of
his
sons,
he
indulged
in
these
lamentations
in
great
distress."
"Dhritarashtra
said,
'After
having
wept
for
the
high-souled
Bhishma
of
terrible
prowess,
what,
O
son,
didthe
Kauravas,urged
by
fate,
next
do
?
Indeed,
when
that
high-souled
and
invincible
hero
was
slain,
what
did
the
Kauravas
do,
sunk
as
they
were
in
an
ocean
of
grief
?
Indeed,
that
swelling
and
highly
efficient
host
of
the
high-souled
Panda
v
as,
would,
O
Sanjaya,
excite
the
keenest
fearsof
even
the
three
worlds.
Tell
me,
therefore,
O
Sanjaya,
what
the(assembled)
kingsdid
after
Devavrata,
that
bull
of
Kuru's
race,
had
fallen.'
"Sanjaya
said,
'Listen,
O
king,
with
undivided
attention,to
me
as

recite
what
thy
sons
did
after
Devavrata
had
been
killed
in
battle.
When
Bhishma,
O
monarch,
of
prowess
incapable
of
being
baffled,
was
slain,
thy
warriors
as
also
the
Pandavas
both
reflected
by
themselves
(onthe
situation).
Reflecting
on
the
duties
of
the
Kshatriya
orderthey
were
filled
with
wonder
and
joy
;
but
acting
according
to
those
duties
of
their
own
order,
they
all
bowed
to
that
high-souled
warrior.
Then
those
tigers
among
men
contrived
for
Bhishma
of
immeasurable
prowess
a
bed
with
a
pillow
made
of
straight
shafts.
And
having
made
arrangements
for
Bhishma's
protection,
they
addressed
one
another
(in
pleasant
converse).
Then
bidding
Ganga's
son
their
farewell
and
walking
round
him,
and
looking
at
one
anotherwith
eyes
red
in
anger,
thoseKshatriyas,
urged
by
fate,
once
more

out
against
