Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Avayavaprabha (अवयवप्रभ) refers to “having a wonderful lustre”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.42 (“Description of the meeting of the Lord and the Mountain”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] Seeing Śiva in front, Himavat bowed to Him. [...] Serpents had transformed themselves into ornaments on his body. He had a wonderful lustre (adbhuta-avayavaprabha) and a divine refulgence. Gods served him with chowries in their hands. Viṣṇu was standing to the left, Brahmā to the right, Indra at his back. Behind on either side, the gods were standing. He was being eulogised by the gods and others. [...]”.
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.
