Brahmāṇḍakharpara (ब्रह्माण्डखर्पर) refers to a “sphere of the heavens”, according to the Yogavasistha 7.129.—“[...] at the end of this sphere [viz., nakṣatracakra], there is the great circle of the universe; having one half of it stretching above and one below, and containing the sky in the midst of them. (This is called the brahmāṇḍa-kharpara, or the mundane sphere). It extends to millions of yojanas, and is compact with all its contents; it is a mere work of imagination, and formed of vacuity in the immensity of vacuum (which is the mind of God)”.
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.
