Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Kathanīya (कथनीय) refers to “that which should be mentioned”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.27 (“Description of the fraudulent words of the Brahmacārin”).—Accordingly, as Śiva (in guise of a Brahmacārin) said to Pārvatī: “So long I had been desirous of knowing what our gentle lady craves for that she performs this great penance. O dear lady, I have now known it through your own words. I am now going away from this place. You can do as you please. What should be done by you is not mentioned by me. To me your further friendship is useless. But this should be mentioned [i.e., kathanīya] that your future should be happy”.
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.
