Nārāyaṇīya (नारायणीय) section of the Mahābhārata is named after the main deity Nārāyaṇa who is glorified throughout the treatise. He is explained as supreme teacher and soul of the universe. He reclines on Śeṣa in Yoganidrā in primeval waters symbolising eternity. Bhīṣma in response to Yudhiṣṭhara’s question explains that his father told him that Nārāyaṇa is the soul of the entire world, caturmūrtī and sanātana god. Nārāyaṇa took birth as the son of Dharma along with Nara, Hari, and Kṛṣṇa. Amongst his four incarnations in the satyayuga of svāmbhuva manvaṅtara, Nara and Nārāyaṇa performed severe austerities at their āśrama in Badari.
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.

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.
