Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Ayonija (अयोनिज) means “not born of the womb”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.2.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] the daughter Svadhā was given to the forefathers. She had three daughters all of whom were of handsome features and virtuous forms. [...] All these were mentally conceived daughters of the forefathers. They were not born of the womb (i.e., ayonija) of Svadhā. They were conventionally considered her children. On reciting their names, men can achieve their desires”.
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.
General definition (in Hinduism)
Ayonijā (अयोनिजा) refers to “divine origin”.—Many Divya Desams have references in their traditional histories (sthala-purāṇas) to the Lord seeking the hand of Mahā Lakṣmī, who is raised by a maharishi after discovering her as an infant of divine origin (ayonijā). For instance, in Oppiliappan Koil, Markandeya Maharishi accedes to the request of Śriman Nārāyaṇa who seeks the hand of his daughter Bhūmī Devī. She was found as a child in the Tulasi forest by the Mahārṣi. [...]
