Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Budhyā (बुध्या) refers to “having realized”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.28 (“Description of the fraudulent words of the Brahmacārin”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī said to Śiva (in guise of a Brahmacārin): “[...]  Neither Viṣṇu nor Brahmā can equal that noble soul. How can then the gods and others be? They are always dependent on Time and are not eternal. After realising (budhyā) this with my sharp intellect factually, I have come to this forest and am performing the elaborate penance for attaining Śiva. My ambition is to attain the supreme lord who is favourably disposed to His devotees and who blesses the distressed”.

Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
