Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Ceṣṭita (चेष्टित) refers to the “(various) gestures and movements (of Śiva)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.21 (“Nārada instructs Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā said to Nārada: “[...] She [Pārvatī] did not achieve happiness and peace in sleeping, drinking, bathing, or sitting amidst her maids. Remembering the various gestures and movements of Śiva [i.e., hara-ceṣṭita], she muttered to herself ever and anon—‘Fie upon my beauty. Fie on my birth and activity’. Thus Pārvatī was much distressed in mind due to separation from Śiva. She did not at all feel happy. She always muttered ‘Śiva, Śiva’. [...]”.
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
Ceṣṭita (चेष्टित) refers to “behaviour”, according to the Halāyudhastotra verse 34-35.—Accordingly, “The visitation of the wives of the distinguished sages in the Pine Park, the oblation with seed in Fire, the twilight dance: Your behaviour (ceṣṭita) is not reprehensible. O Three-eyed one! The doctrines of the world do not touch those who have left worldly life, having passed far beyond the path of those whose minds are afflicted by false knowledge. The gods all wear gold and jewels as an ornament on their body. You do not even wear gold the size of a berry on your ear or on your hand. The one whose natural beauty, surpassing the path [of the world], flashes on his own body, has no regard for the extraneous ornaments of ordinary men”.
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.
