Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Kampayat (कम्पयत्) refers to “shaking” (the ground), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.7 (“Commencement of the War”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “Battle drums were sounded as loud as the rumbling sound of the clouds at the dissolution of the world. The harsh musical instruments were also played when he came. The Asuras in the company of Tāraka roared and shook (kampayat) the ground with their thudding footsteps, leapings and bouncings. Undaunted by that terrible noise, the gods simultaneously rose up to fight Tāraka. [...]”.
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.
