Jagatsarva (जगत्सर्व) refers to the “entire universe”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.25. Accordingly as Rāma narrated to Satī:—“[...] then the delighted Lord Śiva, favourably disposed towards his devotees, bestowed great boons on Viṣṇu and the other Devas. Lord Śiva said:—‘[...] While stationed here you protect the entire universe (Jagatsarva) taking different incarnations and diverse ways of protection. [...]’”.
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.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
