Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Akulīna (अकुलीन) refers to one “not of nobility”, and is used by Dakṣa to describe Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.27. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] on hearing [Dadhīci’s] words, the foolish and evil-minded Dakṣa became furious in a trice and said mockingly:—‘[...] O Brahmin, this Śiva is not a man of nobility (akulīna). He has neither father nor mother. He is the lord of goblins, ghosts and spirits and is incorrigible’”.
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.
