Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Āsādana (आसादन) refers to “sitting (on a couch)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.18 (“Description of the perturbation caused by Kāma”).—Accordingly, after Śiva spoke to Pārvatī: “Thus resuming detachment, lord Śiva forbade her sitting on the couch [i.e., paryaṅka-āsādana]. How can there be a downfall for the great lord Śiva?”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.
