Prītipātra (प्रीतिपात्र) refers to the “object of one’s love”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.4 (“Search for Kārttikeya and his conversation with Nandin”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “On hearing the words of Śiva [the Gods] nervously at one another and spoke before the lord one by one. [...] [The night said]:—They never let the boy go out of their sight. He is the object of their love (prītipātra), dearer to them than their own lives. Verily he who nurtures, possesses the son. [...]”.
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.
