Jagatsraṣṭṛ (जगत्स्रष्टृ) refers to the “creator of the universe”, and is used as an epithet of Brahmā, in the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.18. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] O sage, on hearing these words of mine, Rudra, who is favourably disposed to His devotees, spoke with a smile, strictly adhering to the conventions of the world: ‘I shall go to his house accompanied by you and Nārada. Hence, O creator of the universe [viz., Jagatsraṣṭṛ], you remember Nārada’”.
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.
