Jñātavat (ज्ञातवत्) refers to “knowing” (one’s secret), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.3 (“The boyhood sports of Kārttikeya”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] Afraid of Guha, Indra with all the gods went away to his region agitatedly. O sage, he did not know (jñātavat) his secret. That boy remained there itself as fearless as before. O dear, he was highly pleased and continued his divine sports of various sorts. Meanwhile the six ladies named Kṛttikās came there for bath and they saw the lordly boy. [...]”.
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.
