Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Dīnatā (दीनता) refers to “piteous (eulogies)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.49 (“The delusion of Brahmā”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] O great God, O lord of gods, the ocean of mercy, you are the creator, the sustainer and the annihilator of everything. It is at your will that the entire world including the mobile and immobile is kept checked as the bulls amongst a series of cows. After saying so I bowed to Him with palms joined in reverence. Viṣṇu and others too eulogised lord Śiva. On hearing the piteous (dīnatā) eulogies made by me as well as by Viṣṇu and others lord Śiva became delighted. He granted me the boon of fearlessness delightedly. All were happy, O sage, and I rejoiced much”.
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.
