Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Īpsu (ईप्सु) refers to “those who seek (happiness)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.5.5 (“The Tripuras are fascinated).—Accordingly, as Arihan said to the Lord of the Three Cities: “[...] One shall seek and enjoy happiness as long as the body is hale and hearty, as long as the sense-organs are not impaired and as long as the old age is far off. When there is sickness, impairment of the sense-organs and old age how can one derive happiness? Hence those who seek happiness (sukha-īpsu) shall be prepared to give away even the body. [...]”.
