Praṇodita (प्रणोदित) refers to “being urged (by the pries)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.48 (“Description of Marriage of Śiva and Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “In the meantime, urged by the priest Garga [e.g., gargācārya-praṇodita] Himavat started the rite of marriage in the company of Menā. Himavat and Menā held the gold pot on either side. Himavat was bedecked in fine clothes and ornaments. The joyous mountain with the assistance of his priest wooed the bridegroom after offering water, clothes, ornaments, sandal paste etc. Then the brahmins were requested by Himavat ‘May the rite be formally started after narrating the Tithi etc. The auspicious hour has come’ [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.

Praṇodita (प्रणोदित) in the Sanskrit language is related to the Prakrit word: Paṇollia.
Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). 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.
