Hrishikeśa blew His conch, the Pānchajanya; Dhananjaya, the Devadatta; and Vrikodara, the doer of fearful deeds, blew his great conch, the Paundra. King Yudhishthira, the son of Kunti, blew his conch, the Anantavijaya; and Nakula and Sahadeva blew the Sughosha and the Manipushpaka. The great archer, the king of Kāśi; the great warrior Śikhandi; Dhristadyumna and Virāta; the unconquered Sātyaki; Drupada, and the sons of Draupadi, and the mighty son of Subhadrā, O Lord of the Earth, each blew his own conch.
It is already said that the conches blown by Krishna and Arjuna are of celestial quality.
Panchajanyam: The conch of Krishna was made from the bones of a demon called Panchajan, and so it is called Panchajanyam.
Hrishikesha: Krishna. ‘Hrishika’ means sense organs. ‘Esa’ means ruler. So the name means the ruler of the sense-organs (i.e.) Paramatma, the eternal witness who commands the senses. The word has another meaning (i.e.) the source of all bliss.
Dhanamjayah: Arjuna. He acquired this name because he won wealth from all kings by performing the Rajasuya Yaga.
Vrikodarah: Bhima. Vrika means wolf. So the word means wolf-bellied. The name may also mean one who has the fire called ‘Vrika’ in his stomach, and so capable of consuming anything.
