Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Navati (नवति) refers to “ninety (crores)” (of Gaṇas), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.40 (“The Marriage Procession of Śiva”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] Sumantra, the leader of Gaṇas, went with a crore of Gaṇas. Kākapādodara and Santānaka went each with six crores of Gaṇas. Mahābala, Madhupiṅga and Kokila each went with nine crores. Nīla and Pūrṇabhadra each went with ninety crores (navati-koṭī) of Gaṇas. Caturvaktra with seven crores, Karaṇa with twenty crores and the leader of Gaṇas Ahiromaka went with ninety crores. [...]”.
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.
Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)
Navati (नवति) refers to “ninety (enchantments with a mantra)”, according to the Vajratuṇḍasamayakalparāja, an ancient Buddhist ritual manual on agriculture from the 5th-century (or earlier), containing various instructions for the Sangha to provide agriculture-related services to laypeople including rain-making, weather control and crop protection.—Accordingly, [as the Bhagavān teaches the offering of the root spell], “[...] Having taken brownish cow dung that has not touched the ground and taking ghee, milk and cow urine, one should mix it with seven seeds and flour. Having enchanted it ninety times (navati-vāra) with that mantra, a five-headed Nāga should be made. It should be hooded with jewels, seated cross-legged, coiled, and having smeared it with white sandal and saffron, it should be placed on a pure seat. [...]”.
