Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Raikva (रैक्व).—There was a noble King in ancient India named Jānaśruti. The following is a story about the fame of this King.
One night while this King was sleeping, some hermits took the form of swans and were flying through the air. One of them saw the radiance of the fame of Jānaśruti shining brightly. The other swans said that the fame of Raikva was far greater than this. Jānaśruti heard this. He found out Raikva and placed all his wealth at the foot of Raikva and gave him his daughter in marriage.
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.

[Sanskrit to German]
Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). 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.
