Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Bhaktimat (भक्तिमत्) means “with devotion”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.43.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] thus I have described the fascinating story of Satī (i.e., satīcaritra) to you which confers worldly pleasures and salvation, which is divine and bestows all wishes. [...] Whoever listens to this or recites this with devotion (i.e., bhaktimat), O dear, will attain the greatest goal in every rite”.
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.
Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions
Bhaktimat (भक्तिमत्) refers to a “devotee”, according to the Mṛgendrāgama Kriyāpāda verse 8.151-152b.—Accordingly, “In exactly the same way (evam eva), [the Guru] may guide a devotee (bhaktimat) to union [with a deity such as] Ambikā, Sūrya, Smara, Viṣṇu or Brahmā [i.e., prajāsṛj], after having purified that path [up to the cosmic level of the desired deity] [of all bad karma]. And the same procedure (evam eva hi) [is applicable] for any other deity that is on the path [that the devotee wishes to be united with]”.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.
