Bahiṣkṛta (बहिष्कृत) refers to one who is “expelled” (viz., from sacrifices), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.26. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] Seeing Śiva not bowing to him, my son became displeased. Dakṣa, the patriarch, was furious with Śiva. Haughty and devoid of perfect knowledge, Dakṣa looked cruelly at Śiva and spoke aloud within the hearing of all present. Dakṣa said:—‘[...] Let not this Śiva, a resident of cremation grounds, lacking in nobility of birth and pedigree, expelled by me from sacrifices (yajña-bahiṣkṛta), an outcaste and ugly-shaped, obtain his share along with the Devas’”.
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.
