Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Kupita (कुपित) refers to “infuriated” (i.e., ‘one who is angry’), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.25 (“The seven celestial sages test Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as the seven Sages said (with false words) to Pārvatī: “[...] Dakṣa, the son of Brahmā, at the bidding of his father, begot ten thousand sons of his wife. [...] The sons went to the holy lake Nārāyaṇasaras in the western zone for performing penance. [...] Sage Nārada misled them with his deceptive instructions. At his instance, they never went back home to their father. On hearing this, Dakṣa was infuriated [i.e., kupita] but his father consoled him. Thereafter he begot a thousand other sons and engaged them in penance. The sons too went to the same place for penance at the bidding of their father. Nārada too went there, a self-appointed instructor for them”.
