Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Pravadat (प्रवदत्) refers to the “repetition” (of Mantras), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.47 (“The ceremonious entry of Śiva”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] Waiting for the auspicious Lagna befitting marriage, Bṛhaspati and others became jubilant. Garga was seated in the place where the chronometer had been kept. The Oṃkāra Mantra was repeated during the interval before the Lagna. Repeating (pravadat) the Puṇyāha mantras, Garga lifted the handful of rice-grains and handing them over to Pārvatī he made her shower it on Śiva. [...]”.
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.
