Bhaktikārin (भक्तिकारिन्) refers to “devotees” (i.e., “one who acts with devotion”), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.11 (“The Victory of Kumāra”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] Then Viṣṇu and other gods joyously installed the phallic emblem of Śiva, the lord of the gods. The glory of the phallic emblems of Śiva was marvellous, conferring all cherished desires and salvation to the devotees (bhaktikārin). Then the delighted Viṣṇu and the gods desired to go to the chief of mountains joyously putting Bṛhaspati ahead. [...]”.
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.
