Dīnoddhara (दीनोद्धर) refers to the “uplifter of the distressed”, and is used as an epithet of Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.23. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] One day after delighting the lord with her devotion and obeisance Satī, the daughter of Dakṣa, spoke thus to Śiva: ‘O great lord, lord of lords and ocean of mercy, O great Yogin, the uplifter of the distressed (Dīnoddhara), take pity on me’”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.
