Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Ājanma (आजन्म) refers to “ever since birth”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.28 (“Description of the fraudulent words of the Brahmacārin”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī said to Śiva (in guise of a Brahmacārin): “[...]  If, out of ignorance of His reality, any one were to discredit Śiva, his merit hoarded ever since birth (ājanma) becomes reduced to ashes. You have censured Śiva of immeasurable splendour and I have worshiped you, hence I have become sinful. On seeing a person who hates Śiva one should take bath along with one’s clothes. On seeing a person who hates Śiva one should perform expiatory rites”.
