Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Girīndra (गिरीन्द्र) refers to the “lord of mountains” and is used to describe Himavat (Himācala), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.21 (“Nārada instructs Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā said to Nārada: “[...] When Śiva had vanished after burning Kāma, Pārvatī became extremely agitated due to His separation. She did not attain pleasure anywhere. Returning to her father’s abode and meeting her mother, Śivā, the daughter of the mountain, considered herself born again. She cursed her own beauty. She said to herself. ‘O, I am doomed’. The daughter of the lord of mountains [i.e., girīndra] did not regain composure though consoled and assuaged by the maids. [...]”.
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.
