Juṣṭa (जुष्ट) refers to “being decorated (with gold pots, etc.)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.41 (“Description of the Altar-Structure”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] O great sage, tired of seeing the portrayal of yourself, you became engaged in seeing the other builds of Viśvakarman. You entered the great altar of Himavat, studded with various gems and decorated (juṣṭa) with gold pots and stumps of plantain trees. It had a thousand columns. It was wonderful. O sage, you were struck with surprise on seeing the altars. [...]”.
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 to German]
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.
