Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Samarpaṇa (समर्पण) refers to “offerings”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.5.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada the birth of Menā’s daughter:—“[...] She made clay idol of the Goddess and worshipped her by offering various things [i.e., nānāvastu-samarpaṇa] on the banks of the Gaṅgā in Auṣadhiprastha. On some days she observed a complete fast. On some days she observed sacred rites. Some days wind alone constituted her food and some days she drank only water. With her mind fixed on Śivā, Menā passed twenty seven years with pleasure and brilliant lustre. [...]”.
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.
Vaishnavism (Vaishava dharma)Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions (vaishnavism)
Samarpaṇa (समर्पण) refers to the “laying down (of one’s burden)”, according to Vedānta Deśika’s Rahasyatrayasāra.—Accordingly, “Among these [two categories], the ācāryaniṣṭhaṉ is himself included within the Ācārya’s laying down of his burden (bhara-samarpaṇa) with regard to him and his own …. For this ācāryaniṣṭhaṉ, according to the axiom of “how much more, then” (kaumutika nyāya), there can be no doubt as to the attainment of the fruit. Mutaliyāṇṭāṉ [Rāmānuja’s nephew] taught the verse: like those creatures on the body of a lion that leaps from one mountain to another, when Bhāṣyakāra [Rāmānuja] jointly leaps [does prapatti], then, due to our bodily relationship with him [i.e. being related to him due to kinship ties], we too have been elevated [we get the same salvific benefits as he does]”.
Vaishnava (वैष्णव, vaiṣṇava) or vaishnavism (vaiṣṇavism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshipping Vishnu as the supreme Lord. Similar to the Shaktism and Shaivism traditions, Vaishnavism also developed as an individual movement, famous for its exposition of the dashavatara (‘ten avatars of Vishnu’).
