Preraṇa (प्रेरण):—[preraṇaṃ] Impulsion: Driving out; A force that moves something alongSource: National Mission for Manuscripts: Traditional Medicine System in India
Preraṇa (प्रेरण) refers to “stimulating” and is the action (karma) associated with Cala (“mobile”): one of the twenty Śārīraguṇa (or Gurvādiguṇa), which refers to the “twenty qualities of the body”—where guṇa (property) represents one of the six divisions of dravya (drugs).—Śārīraka-guṇas are twenty in number. There are ten guṇas with their opposite guṇas. [...] Sthira (“static”) has the predominant bhūta (element) of earth and the associated actions of “stabilising/dhāraṇa”; while Cala (“mobile”) has the predominant bhūta (element) of air and is associated with the action “stimulating/preraṇa”.

Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Preraṇa (प्रेरण) refers to “inducing” (e.g., inducing reticent haughty persons to love), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.18 (“Description of the perturbation caused by Kāma”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated: “After going there, the haughty Kāma, deluded by Śiva’s magic power, stationed himself, after first spreading the enchanting power of Spring all around. [...] At that time the Kāladīpikā (brilliant lamp) induced [i.e., preraṇa] reticent haughty persons to love. O good sir, the wind blew gently but distressed those who were separated from their beloveds. Thus the vast diffusion of Spring caused the display of emotions of love. It was unbearable to the forestdwelling sages. [...]”.
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.
