Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Pradhāvat (प्रधावत्) refers to “rushing towards someone”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.30 (“The Celebration of Pārvatī’s Return”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “On hearing that Pārvatī was returning, Menā and Himavat excessively delighted went ahead seated in a divine vehicle. [...] On seeing the parents rushing at her (pradhāvat) in their great delight, she gladly bowed to them along with her maids. They gave her their blessings and embraced her. Saying ‘O darling,’ they shed tears in their excitement of love. [...]”.
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.
