Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Dayitā (दयिता) refers to “one’s wife”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.8.—Accordingly, Nārada said to Himavat:—“[..] O lord of mountains, she will be the wife [i.e., dayitā] of Śiva and will remain his favourite always. She will be a chaste lady of good rites. She will increase the pleasure of her parents. Performing a penance she will fascinate Śiva’s mind towards herself. He too will marry none else except her. A love akin to this pair will not be found anywhere. Never in the past was it seen nor will it occur in future. Nor it is current now. [...]”.
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.
