Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Akhileśvara (अखिलेश्वर) refers to the “lord of all” and is used to describe Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.4.—Accordingly, as Umā (Durgā/Satī) spoke to the Gods:—“[...] Hear further, O Viṣṇu, O Brahmā, O sages and O gods, the divine sports of the supreme lord Śiva, that protect the universe. [...] The lord Śiva did this just to show the behaviour of a love-lorn lover. He blabbered like a lover in despair due to separation. But really the supreme lord has no aberrations, is not distressed and remains unconquered. My master Śiva is perfect, lord of all [i.e., akhileśvara] and the controller of illusion. [...]”.
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.
