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.

Jāmitra (जामित्र).—The seventh zodiacal sign from the natal sign (lagna); तिथौ च जामित्रगुणान्वितायाम् (tithau ca jāmitraguṇānvitāyām) Ku.7.1 (jāmitraṃ lagnāt saptamaṃ sthānam Malli.). Note--Some derive the word from जाया (jāyā), because in astrology, the जामित्र (jāmitra) sign indicates the future good-luck of one's wife (jāyāmitram ?); but the word is obviously connected with the Greek diametron.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family. 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.
