Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Ātmeśa (आत्मेश) [?] refers to “lord of souls” and is used to describe Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.49 (“The delusion of Brahmā”).—Accordingly, as the Gods eulogised Śiva: “[...] You are the perfect Brahman, the nectar, free from grief, devoid of attributes and the great one. You are the sole bliss, free from excitement, aberrations and even static and insentient. You are the cause of production, sustenance and dissolution of the universe Śiva, the lord of souls (ātmeśa—tadapekṣatayātmeśaḥ), is greater than the universe. He is free from the necessity of its aid. He is always pervasive. [...]”.
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.
