Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Prabhānvita (प्रभान्वित) refers to “being endowed with (great) lustre”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.43 (“Description of Śiva’s wonderful sport”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “On hearing your words, Menā thought her daughter auspicious, rich, fortunate and harbinger of happiness for the three families. Her face was beaming with pleasure and her heart was delighted. Frequently congratulating herself on her good luck (svabhāgya) she said:— [Menā said:—] ‘By the birth of Pārvatī, I have become blessed in every respect. The lord of mountains too is blessed. Every thing connected with me is blessed. Her would-be-husband is the lord of these leaders of great lustre (su-prabhānvita) whom I have seen now. How can I describe her good luck even in hundred years? It is impossible to describe it when I see the lustre of these leaders’”.
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.
