Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Durvṛtta (दुर्वृत्त) refers to “wicked people” whose company should be shunned by persons of good qualities and conduct (sadvṛtta), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.1.17. Accordingly, as Guṇanidhi, who was addicted to gambling (dyūta), was told by his mother as follows:—“[...] shun the company (saṃsarga) of the wicked people (durvṛtta), associate with good men (sādhusaṅgara), turn your attention to good learning (sadvidyā) and strictly adhere to Brahminical conventions (brāhmaṇācāra). Emulate your father in form (rūpa), fame (yaśas) and traditional activity (kulaśīla). Why don’t you feel ashamed? Cast off your wickedness (durvṛtta). [...] You shall respect your father-in-law also, in view of his good qualities and conduct (sadvṛtta). How is it that you do not feel ashamed of wickedness (durvṛtta)?”.
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.
