Mahādhī (महाधी) refers to one of “great wisdom” and is used to describe Brahmā, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.3.—Accordingly, as Nārada said to Brahmā:—“[...] O Brahmā, the best of eloquent ones, of great wisdom (i.e., mahādhī), please tell me. What is the subsequent story of the good auspicious mountain? You have narrated the wonderful story of the auspicious antecedents of Menā. The details of the marital rites too are heard. Please continue the subsequent narrative”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.

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.
