Grāmādhīśa (ग्रामाधीश) refers to the “headmen of the villages”, as mentioned in the Śivapurāṇa 2.1.18.—“[...] the king Dama was unconquerable. O brahmin, he did not stress any act of piety other than furnishing temples of Śiva with lamps in plenty. He called headmen of the villages (grāmādhīśa) in his kingdom and asked them to furnish all temples of Śiva with lamps. He warned them that if they defaulted they would be punished. It is declared in the Vedas that Śiva is delighted at the gift of a lamp to his temples”.
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.
