Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Nānādeśa (नानादेश) refers to “different places”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.37 (“The letter of betrothal is dispatched”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] On seeing those people who had been highly honoured by lord Śiva and who had returned excessively delighted, the mountain rejoiced much. Then he extended his invitation highly pleasing to his kinsmen stationed in different places (nānādeśa) with great delight. Then he began collecting foodstuffs and other requisite articles intended for the performance of the marriage. [...]”.
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.
