Samprahṛṣṭa (सम्प्रहृष्ट) refers to “boundless joy”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.18. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] in the bright half of the month of Caitra (March-April) on the thirteenth day when the star was Uttarā Phalguni on a Sunday, lord Śiva started. [...] With great humility and boundless joy (samprahṛṣṭa), Dakṣa along with his people welcomed Him”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.

Saṃprahṛṣṭa (संप्रहृष्ट) in the Sanskrit language is related to the Prakrit word: Saṃpahiṭṭha.
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.
