Cāmaradhāri (चामरधारि) refers to “one who holds chowries above the heads of others”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.12 (“The story of Śiva and Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] O sage, with great pleasure, Viṣṇu and I held the chowries aloft above the head (cāmaradhāri) of the lord with alertness. Indra and other gods, rendering suitable service to Kumāra went ahead joyously flanking him on all sides. They reached Śiva’s mountain crying shouts of victory to Śiva. They entered the precincts with delight. Auspicious sounds arose. [...]”.
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.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). 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.
