Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Adhīna (अधीन) refers to “subservient” (e.g, the entire universe is subservient to Śiva’s illusion), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.2.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] O excellent sage, once the three sisters (i.e., Menā, Dhanyā, Kalāvatī) went to Śvetadvīpa (white island) in the world of Viṣṇu for sightseeing purpose. [...] Helpless by misfortune and deluded by lord Śiva’s illusion O sage, the three sisters did not stand up. Śiva’s illusion is weighty and capable of deluding the worlds. The entire universe is subservient to it (i.e., adhīna—tadadhīnaṃ jagatsarvaṃ). It is also called Śiva’s Will. The same is also called an action that has begun to fructify. Its names are many. Everything takes place on Śiva’s wish. There is nothing to be pondered over in this respect”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.

Adhīna (अधीन):—[bahuvrihi compound] m. f. n.
(-naḥ-nā-nam) 1) Dependant.
2) Docile. E. adhi and ina ‘having a master over one’s self’. This word and the etymology as mentioned, are given by the native lexicographers; but according to the best grammatical authorities adhīna would not exist as a real word. Words as rājādhīna, brāhmaṇādhīna and the like, are explained by them as coming from rājādhi (rājan and adhi), brāhmaṇādhi (brāhmaṇa and adhi) with taddh. aff. kha, or by others as derived from rājan, brāhmaṇa with taddh. aff. sadhīnan; it would seem therefore that the use of adhīna as an independant word is grammatically not correct. But see adhyadhīna and anadhīnaka.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: Yates Sanskrit-English Dictionary
