Aduṣṭa (अदुष्ट) refers to one who is “who is free from defects” and is used to describe Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.26. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] after duly saluting Śiva along with the devas, Nandin, the attendant of Śiva who had heard the words of Dakṣa, was very furious and rolled his eyes. With an intention to curse him, he immediately spoke to Dakṣa. Nandīśvara said:—‘[...] O Dakṣa, of wicked intentions (durmati), in vain did you curse him by your inconsiderate rashness as a Brahmin. The great lord Śiva who is free from defects (aduṣṭa), has in vain been ridiculed by you’”.
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.
