Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Praśāntadhī (प्रशान्तधी) refers to one who is “calm”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.30. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“observing silence and remembering her lord with great respect, Satī the Goddess calmed down (praśāntadhī) and sat on the ground in the northern wing. Having sipped water duly, covering up her body entirely with her cloth she closed her eyes and remembered her lord. She then entered the yogic trance”.
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.

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.
