Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Nidhāya (निधाय) refers to “concealing”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.9.—Accordingly, as Himācala (Himavat) said to Menā:—“O dear, at the end of the latter half of the night, I too had a dream. Please listen to it lovingly. [...] Advising our daughter to render service to that saint I requested him to approve of it but He didn’t. A great discussion took place (between her and Śiva based on Sāṅkhya and Vedānta). Thereafter at His bidding my daughter stayed there. Concealing [i.e., nidhāya] her love in the heart she served Him with devotion. This is the dream I had, O bright-faced lady and I have told you all. [...]”.
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.
