Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Saṃmata (संमत) refers to a “great discussion” [?], according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.9.—Accordingly, as Himācala (Himavat) said to Menā:—“O dear, at the end of the latter half of the night, I too had a dream. Please listen to it lovingly. [...] Advising our daughter to render service to that saint I requested him to approve of it but He didn’t. A great discussion took place (between her and Śiva based on Sāṅkhya and Vedānta) [i.e., sāṃkhyavedānta-saṃmata]. Thereafter at His bidding my daughter stayed there. Concealing her love in the heart she served Him with devotion. This is the dream I had, O bright-faced lady and I have told you all. [...]”.
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.

Saṃmata (संमत) refers to the “understanding” (i.e., ‘the way things are understood by the followers of a particular philosophy’), according to the Īśvarapratyabhijñāvivṛtivimarśinī 2.133.—Accordingly, “Having thus refuted the external [object as it is] understood by the followers of Kaṇāda [i.e., kāṇāda-saṃmata], [Utpaladeva now] refutes as well [the external object as it is] explained by the Vaibhāṣikas [in the sentence beginning with] ‘If, on the other hand’”.
