Liṅgapurāṇa (लिङ्गपुराण) refers to one of the eighteen Major Puranas according to the Matsyapurāṇa and other traditional lists of Puranic literature: a category of ancient Sanskrit texts which gives a huge contribution in the development of Indian literature.—The lists of eighteen Mahāpurāṇas (e.g., liṅgapurāṇa) and eighteen Upapurāṇas are not same everywhere, as some names are dropped in some references whereas some are included in others. It can be noticed that, except the Vāyuapurāṇa and the Śivapurāṇa, the names of the Mahāpurāṇas are similar in almost all the Purāṇas.
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.

Liṅgapurāṇa (लिङ्गपुराण) should be donated (dāna) on the fourteenth tithi of the bright fortnight in kārttika, according to the Dharmaśāstra taught in the 10th century Saurapurāṇa: one of the various Upapurāṇas depicting Śaivism.—Accordingly, the donation of the various Purāṇas to various recipients on different tithis along with the merits thereof are given in the ninth chapter.—[...] The Liṅgapurāṇa should be donated to a worshipper of Śiva on the fourteenth tithi of the bright fortnight in kārttika and by its donation, the donor becomes free from all sins and becomes united with all prosperity.
Dharmashastra (धर्मशास्त्र, dharmaśāstra) contains the instructions (shastra) regarding religious conduct of livelihood (dharma), ceremonies, jurisprudence (study of law) and more. It is categorized as smriti, an important and authoritative selection of books dealing with the Hindu lifestyle.

[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.
