Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Dvandvaduḥkha (द्वन्द्वदुःख) refers to the “misery of mutually clashing opposites” which vanishes when differentiation (bheda) ceases, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.1.12, while explaining details of worship:—“[...] when differentiation (bheda) ceases, the misery of mutually clashing opposites (dvandvaduḥkha) vanishes. He who is free from the tangle of opposites and the miseries attendant on them assumes the form of Śiva (śivarūpa). O celestial sages, when the mutually clashing opposites do not afflict, a person endowed with true knowledge has neither happiness nor misery. Rules of do’s and don’ts do not bind him. Such a person who has not entered a household life is rare to meet with. If there is such a one he will quell all sins by his mere sight. Even the holy centres praise such a person of knowledge. Devas and all sages consider him the supreme Brahman (Parabrahman or Parabrahmātmaka), Śiva Himself”.
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.
