Khyāpayat (ख्यापयत्) refers to “spreading (glory)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.29 (“Śivā-Śiva dialogue”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī said to Śiva: “[...] Spreading (khyāpayat) your glory in the worlds you shall make everything about my father fruitful. Thus you start your householder’s life. There is no doubt that my father with his kinsmen will accede to your request as he has already been urged by the sages lovingly. Formerly as Dakṣa’s daughter I was offered to you by my father. But the marriage rites were not duly performed then. [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.

Khyāpayat (ख्यापयत्) in the Sanskrit language is related to the Prakrit word: Khāveṃta.
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.
