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.

Mangu (མང་གུ་) or Druphor (འབྲུ་ཕོར་) refers to “container for grains” and represents a product created with Trözo (སྤྲོས་བཟོ་) or Troezo (“silver and gold smithery”) which represents one of the various arts and crafts, which were promoted by the state Bhutan since the 17th century.— There are today many exquisite life size bronze and silver figures of religious heirarchs created in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries in Bhutan. Beside statues, gold and silver smiths created a wide range of religious objects. They include cups for offering such as the skull shaped thoedzu or banza (བཉྫ་), many types of butter lamp containers called kongbu (ཀོང་བུ་), offering vase known as bumpa (བུམ་པ་), ceremonial water jugs called chapbum (ཆབ་བུམ་), cups for water offering called ting (ཏིང་), containers for alcohol offering called thro (ཁྲོ་) and phudchung (ཕུད་ཅུང་), bowls for fruit offering called thokoe (མཐོ་སྐོས་), container for grains called druphor (འབྲུ་ཕོར་) or mangu (མང་གུ་), etc.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.

Maṅgu (मङ्गु) or Maṅku or Madgu.—adj., also in composition with bhāva, -bhūta (= Pali maṅku; compare also durmaṅku; maṅku once in Vedic, ŚB, app. staggering, [Boehtlingk and Roth], but perhaps not the same word): mentally disturbed, upset, abashed, out of countenance; all three forms are clearly variants of each other (compare pudgala: puṃgala etc., § 3.4), as is shown notably by a cliché, tūṣṇībhūto (once °tvā, Divyāvadāna 633.24; not in Mahāvyutpatti) madgubhūtaḥ srastaskandhaḥ adhomukho niṣpratibhānaḥ (Divyāvadāna °pratibhaḥ; in Mahāvyutpatti before adho°) pradhyānaparamaḥ (Mahāvyutpatti °paraḥ) Mahāvyutpatti 7122—26; Divyāvadāna 633.24, 27 (here accs.); 636.7; Avadāna-śataka i.48.10, in which, for madgu- of the other texts, Mahāvyutpatti 7122 reads maṅgu-, or with Mironov maṅku-(v.l. maṅgu-). The form madgu also in Avadāna-śataka i.286.5 vyāpadyate madguḥ pratitiṣṭhati kopaṃ saṃjanayati; in Mūla-Sarvāstivāda-Vinaya ii.86.2 madguvo (n. pl. f.); see also amadgu; and in Bodhisattvabhūmi 123.10 (na ca bodhisattvo) yācana- kam avahasati…na madgubhāvam (so ms., ed. em. maṅku°) asyopasaṃharati; but maṅku elsewhere in Bodhisattvabhūmi, (bhūtaṃ ca) doṣaṃ (of someone else) pratichādayati, na vivṛṇoti, yenāsya syān maṅkubhāvaḥ 254.15, so that he would be embarrassed; maṅku-bhā(vam…,lacuna) 150.4, filled by Tibetan bag ḥkhums pa, timidity, ‘little-mindedness’, and elsewhere: maṅkur bhavati, Hoernle, JRAS 1916.711 (= Pali Sn 818 maṅku hoti), is upset, disturbed (by the criticism of others); abhīru acchambhina-m (! n. sg. m. required; ‘hiatus-bridging’ m?) a-maṅku-bhūtaḥ dṛḍha- vīryaḥ (Ārya-)Mañjuśrīmūlakalpa 93.24. There seems to be even, once, an apparently related madgībhūta, q.v., implying a stem madga, but this is doubtful. See Pischel, SBBA 1904 pp. 816 (fol. 169a), and 823 f., for a discussion which in my opinion leads in a quite wrong direction.

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.
