Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Kṛtāgas (कृतागस्) refers to an “aggressor” (i.e., one having committed a sin), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.40.—Accordingly, as Viṣṇu said to Brahmā and other Devas:—“[...] an aggression against a powerful person neither befits a weak aggressor (kṛtāgas) nor leads to his welfare. Thus, O Brahman, the gods have committed sin and offended Śiva, since they had partaken of His share in the sacrifice. You shall propitiate Śiva by falling at his feet, with pure mind”.
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, 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.
