Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Nipatita (निपतित) refers to “flowing” (i.e., the ‘flow’ of a river) [?], according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.11.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Sage Nārada: “[...] In the meantime, following the conventions of the world, Śiva wished to perform penance in order to concentrate his mind properly. Taking some important Gaṇas of quiet nature, Nandin and others, with Him, He went to the excellent Himālayan ridge—Gaṅgāvatāra, O sage, where the great holy river Gaṅgā flowed [i.e., nipatita] from Brahmapura formerly, in order to quell sins. [...]”.
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.
