Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Mocita (मोचित) refers to “having been freed” (from adversities), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.12 (“The story of Śiva and Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Viṣṇu said to Kārttikeya: “[...] You alone are the creator, sustainer and annihilator of the universe. You, born of fire-god, be pleased. Your cosmic image is identical with the universe. O son of Śiva, kinsman of the distressed, be pleased. O lord, protector of the gods, O lord, save us always. O merciful one, protector of gods, be pleased. After killing the Asura Tāraka along with his followers, O great lord, the gods have been freed (mocita) from adversities by you”.
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.
