Laukikācāra (लौकिकाचार) refers to “worldly conventions”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.41.—Accordingly, as Viṣṇu and others eulogized Śiva:—“[...] O great lord, the lord of the gods and the prescriber of worldly conventions (i.e., laukikācāra-kṛt), we know you to be Śiva and Brahman, thanks to your favour. O lord Śiva, why do you delude us by your illusion which is inscrutable and which deludes people always”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.
