Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Dharmavid (धर्मविद्) refers to “one who knows Dharma”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.17. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] having concluded the austerities, and secured what she desired as a boon, Satī went home and made obeisance to her father and mother. [...] After some time had elapsed, Dakṣa, the foremost of those who knew Dharma [viz., Dharmavid], thought of the procedure of handing over his daughter to Siva”.
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.
