Munivākya (मुनिवाक्य) refers to the “words of the sage”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.9.—Accordingly, as Menā said to Himācala (Himavat):—“As but is natural to women, the words of the sage [i.e., munivākya] have not been understood by me well. (I think it is better) that you perform the marriage of our daughter with a handsome bridegroom. Let the bridegroom of Pārvatī be born of a good family endowed with good characteristic signs. In every respect that marriage will yield an unprecedented happiness. Obeisance to you. Do everything necessary to make our daughter, as beloved to us as our own lives, very happy and delighted after being united with a good bridegroom”.
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.

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.
