Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Pādapadma (पादपद्म) refers to the “lotus-like feet” (of Śiva), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.29. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] Then inciting the fury of Dakṣa further, she said to Viṣṇu and all other Devas and sages unhesitatingly.. Satī said:—‘[...] It is a pity that out of foolishness you hold malice towards Śiva, the benefactor of everyone, whose lotus-like feet (pādapadma) are always resorted to by the bees in the form of the minds of lofty-natured persons, who confers all blessings even that of realising the Self’”.
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.

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.
