Dharmashastra (religious law)Source: Google Books: Manusmṛti with the Manubhāṣya
Ahuta (अहुत).—One of the five sacrifices (pañcayajña).—The sacrifice that has been described as ‘Ahuta’ is the same as ‘Japa’. ‘Japa’ here should be taken as standing for Vedic study, in view of the assertion that ‘by Vedic study one should worship the sages’. Or, it may be taken in the sense of the mental operation of ‘recalling to the mind’ (of Vedic texts). The root ‘japa’ has been held to be denotative of both acts—that of loudly reciting, as well as that of silently recalling to the mind. (See the Manubhāṣya verse 3.74)
Dharmashastra (धर्मशास्त्र, dharmaśāstra) contains the instructions (shastra) regarding religious conduct of livelihood (dharma), ceremonies, jurisprudence (study of law) and more. It is categorized as smriti, an important and authoritative selection of books dealing with the Hindu lifestyle.
Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Āhūta (आहूत) refers to an “invitation” (i.e., to visit one’s house), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.28. Accordingly as Śiva said to Satī:—“[...] O gentle lady, those who go to another man’s house without being invited (an-āhūta) attain disrespect which is more serious than even death. Even the prosperous Indra and people like him going to another man’s house in such a context become worthless. What then about others? A journey of such a nature is futile”.
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.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
