Pūrṇakāma (पूर्णकाम) refers to “one whose ambitions are fully realised”, and is used as an epithet for Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.24. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] once Śiva accompanied by Satī and seated on His Bull wandered over the Earth, in one of his sportive activities. Wandering over the ocean-girt Earth He reached Daṇḍaka forest [...] There Śiva saw Rāma who was searching for Sitā [...] The great liberal-minded lord Śiva who is Pūrṇakāma delightfully bowed to Rāma who was wandering in the forest in the company of Lakṣmaṇa and was in need of a favour”.
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.
