Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Ātmaja (आत्मज) refers to “offspring”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.21 (“Nārada instructs Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Nārada said to Brahmā: “O dear Brahmā, O disciple of Viṣṇu, of great intellect. O Creator of three worlds, this is a very wonderful story of the great soul Śiva that has been narrated. When Kāma had been reduced to ashes by the fire from the third eye of Śiva and when that fire had been deposited in the ocean what happened thereafter? What did Goddess Pārvatī, the daughter of the lord of mountains [i.e., kudhara-ātmaja], do? O storehouse of mercy, please tell me now where she went along with her maids”.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: The Purana Index

The Ketus that appear as spots in the solar and lunar discs are 33 in number. They are named as Tāmasa and Kīlaka Ketus. They are the sons of Rāhu. Their effects have been stated in the chapter on the Sun (cf. verse 7.3)”.
