Daityapīḍita (दैत्यपीडित) refers to “being harassed by the Asuras”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.11 (“The Victory of Kumāra”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] Then Kumuda the son of Śeṣa who was harassed by the Asuras (daityapīḍita) came and sought refuge in Kumāra. Another follower of Tāraka—Pralamba who had fled from the previous battle wrought great havoc with full force. Kumuda, the great son of Śeṣa the lord of serpents, sought refuge in Kumāra the son of Pārvatī and eulogised him. [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.
