Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Preṣita (प्रेषित) refers to “sending forth” (i.e., ‘to sent someone thither’), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.9.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Sage Nārada:—“[...] The lord was completely agitated due to Satī’s love and separation from her. He performed his penance there. Pārvatī engaged herself in His service continuously accompanied by two of her maids. Although the lord Śiva was hit and wounded by the arrows of Kāma who was sent thither [i.e., preṣita] by the gods to enchant Him, He was not swayed at all. Burning Kāma there by His fiery eye, on remembering my words, the lord became angry with me and vanished from the scene. [...]”.
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.
