Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Nāgabālaka (नागबालक) refers to a “Nāga child”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.11 (“The Victory of Kumāra”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “Then Kumāra told the Nāga child (nāgabālaka) Kumuda—‘Go home fearlessly. That Asura has been slain along with his army’. On hearing the words of Guha, Kumuda, the son of the Nāga chief eulogised and bowed to Kumāra and went to Pātāla in great delight. Thus the story of the victory of Kumāra, including the wonderful way in which Tāraka was slain, has been narrated by me, O noble sage. [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.
