Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Pīyūṣa (पीयूष) refers to “nectar”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.21. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] When Kāma (God of Love) reached the vicinity of Śiva, Spring spread all his splendour in accord with the inclination of the lord. [...] With diverse conversations, glances, joking remarks and exchanges of pleasantries he instructed Śiva in the knowledge of Self. Drinking the nectar (pīyūṣa) from her moon-face, Śiva stabilised his body. Sometimes he experienced exhilarating and particularly pleasing state”.
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.
