Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Kṛtsnaśas (कृत्स्नशस्) refers to “entirely”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.12.—Accordingly, as Himācala (i.e., Himālaya) said to Śiva: “O great lord of the gods, O Śiva, the merciful, O lord, open your eyes and look at me who have sought refuge in you. O Śiva, O great lord, the delighter of the universe, O great God, I bow to you who destroy all adversities. O lord of gods, the Vedas and the sacred lore do not know you entirely [i.e., kṛtsnaśas]. Your greatness is beyond the sphere of words and minds, inexpressible by means of words and incomprehensible. [...]”.
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.
