Kuveṣa (कुवेष) refers to one “of indecent dress”, and is used by the evil-minded Dakṣa to describe Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.29. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] Dakṣa on hearing those words of his daughter looked at Satī cruelly and said thus to her. Dakṣa said:—‘[...] Knowing Śiva to be of indecent dress (kuveṣa) and features, my dear daughter I did not invite him to the sacrifice in the presence of gods and sages.’”
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.
