Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Dharmajāti (धर्मजाति) refers to “faith and caste”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.25 (“The seven celestial sages test Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī said to the seven Sages: “[...] Interest in embellishment and ornaments shall be found in those who are deluded by illusion and who are not in unison with the Brahman. The lord is devoid of attributes, unborn, free from illusion, of invisible movement [i.e., alakṣya-gati] and a cosmic Being. O Brahmins, Śiva does not shower His blessings on the ground of faith, caste etc. [i.e., dharmajāti-ādi] I know Śiva truly only through the blessings of the preceptor. [...]”.
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.
