Praśaṃsat (प्रशंसत्) (Cf. Praśaṃsantī) refers to “praising”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.23 (“Attempt of Himavat to dissuade Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, after Viṣṇu spoke to the Gods and others: “[...] After praising [i.e., praśaṃsat] the penance of Pārvatī whose body was achievement personified, the gods went to the place where the bull-bannered lord was present. After reaching there the gods sent you in, O sage, and stood at a distance from Śiva who had reduced Kāma to ashes. They were watching. O Nārada, you the fearless devotee of Śiva approached Śiva and saw the lord extremely pleased. [...]”.
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.
