Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Sahavāsin (सहवासिन्) refers to an “associate”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.25 (“The seven celestial sages test Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as the seven Sages said (with false words) to Pārvatī: “[...] Nārada is a quibbler. He misleads others. If his words are paid heed to, you stand to lose in every respect. [...] Whomsoever this sage advocates his philosophy, very pleasing to the ears, generally the same person discards his hearth and home and begins to beg for alms. Nārada has a dirty soul though he is endowed with a white brilliant complexion for ever. We know him particularly because we are his associates [i.e., sahavāsin]. [...]”.
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.
