Ādiśiśira (आदिशिशिर).—One of the disciples of Śākalya. Vyāsa made the Vedas and taught his son Śākalya a portion of it. Śākalya divided his portion into five different and equal divisions and taught each of his five disciples, Vātsyāyana, Maudgalya, Śāli, Ādiśiśira and Gokhali a division. (Skandha 12, Bhāgavata).
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.
