Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Jagatpati (जगत्पति) refers to the “lord of the universe”, and is used as an epithet of Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.17. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] being asked thus by my son Dakṣa, I spoke with a smile thereby delighting Dakṣa, the lord of the subjects: ‘O Dakṣa, listen. I shall tell you why I have come here. The wholesome benefit of your progeny is what I desire and what you must also desire. Your daughter has propitiated Śiva, the lord of the universe (Jagatpati) and has secured a boon. The opportune moment for the same has arrived now’”.
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.

1) Jagatpati (जगत्पति) refers to the “lord of the world”, according to the Netratantra of Kṣemarāja: a Śaiva text from the 9th century in which Śiva (Bhairava) teaches Pārvatī topics such as metaphysics, cosmology, and soteriology.—Accordingly, [verse 21.9cd-14]—“[...] The Gods and Asuras view mantras are seen as powerful and invincible. [Mantras] confer benefits [because they are] all-favoring, all-bestowing, all-pervading, and Śiva. Briefly, O Mahadeva, speak to my question. There is not anyone higher than yourself, O Lord of the World (jagatpati—asti jagat pate). Please tell all, O Great Śiva, if I please you, O Lord”.
2) Jagatpati (जगत्पति) or “the Lord of the world” is also used to describe Viśvakarman.—Accordingly, [verse 13.25cd-28, while describing the appearance and worship of Viśvakarman]—“Furthermore, [I shall describe] Viśvakarman, the Lord of the world (jagatpati—viśvākāraṃ jagatpatim). [He] is bright as a ray of light, risen alone [i.e., from itself]. [Viśvakarman] has [either] two or four arms. [When he has four hands he] bears a stone cutter’s chisel and a book with [his] beautiful right hand. [In the left he holds] a clamp and a cord. [...]”.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.
