Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Nirvāha (निर्वाह) refers to “maintaining”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.25 (“The seven celestial sages test Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as the seven Sages said (with false words) to Pārvatī: “[...] O great Goddess, daughter of the mountain, you alone think within yourself how much pleasure could be derived by getting such a bridegroom. At first he [Śiva] married Satī, the chaste daughter of Dakṣa, eagerly but the fool that he was he could not maintain [i.e., nirvāha] the household even for a few days. He accused her and forsook her Himself. The lord went on meditating on His own form, free from stains and sorrows and sported happily. [...]”.
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.
