Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Avārya (अवार्य) refers to “that which cannot be thwarted”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.17 (“The dialogue between Indra and Kāmadeva”).—Accordingly, as Indra said to Kāma: “[...] O dear, the test of a real friend is in the time of distress and is also based on what he does behind the back. It is not otherwise. This is truth. Now that an adversity has befallen me, which cannot be thwarted [i.e., avārya] by anyone else, O dear friend, it shall be a test for you today. This is not a matter that brings pleasure to me alone. This is a matter that concerns all the gods and others too”.
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.
