Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Divyātmā (दिव्यात्मा) refers to a “divine form”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.37 (“The letter of betrothal is dispatched”).—Accordingly, as Himavat prepared the wedding of Menā and Śiva: “[...] O celestial sage, listen to a detailed narration of the arrival of those mountains. [...] Bringing with him many articles of presentation, the liberal Western mountain reached there in a divine form (divyātmā). The Eastern mountain came there with brilliant gems and jewels. He looked delighted and extremely brilliant. The highly venerable lord of mountains, Malaya, came there with his followers. He was happy with his excellent followers. The mountain Dardura came along with his wife. He was exquisitely dressed. He was delighted. He had many attendants with him. [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.
