Dhritarashtra at their head took their seats in that assembly. And, O
Bharata, Bhishma and Drona and Kripa and the high-souled Vidura with

mansion looked resplendent with those assembled kings like heaven itself
with a conclave of the celestials of great good fortune. And they were

Vaisampayana continued,--"Then Sakuni, well-skilled at dice, took up the
