Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Sanmāna (सन्मान) refers to “(great) reverence”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.37 (“The letter of betrothal is dispatched”).—Accordingly, as Himavat prepared the wedding of Menā and Śiva: “[...] Great festivities went on in the city. Banners, flags and festoons shone everywhere. The canopies hid the sunlight. Himavat welcomed them with great delight and reverence (sanmāna). The mountains and the rivers, the gents and the ladies were duly received. He housed them suitably in separate places. They were gratified with the amenities provided by Himavat”.
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.
