Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Bhāmin (भामिन्) (Cf. Bhāminī) refers to “one who is beautiful”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.29 (“Śivā-Śiva dialogue”).—Accordingly, as Śiva said to Pārvatī: “O great Goddess, listen to my important statement. See that our marriage rites are performed in the proper manner without deficiency. O sweet-faced one, all the living beings Brahmā and others are non-eternal. O beautiful lady (bhāminī), know all these visible things to be perishable. Know that the single beings assumed manifold forms. The attributeless took over the attributes. That which is self-luminous had other lights imposed on it. [...]”.
