Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Sāṃprata (सांप्रत) refers to “now” (i.e., ‘at the present time’), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.33 (“The appeasement of Himavat”).—Accordingly, as Vasiṣṭha said to Himavat (Himācala): “[...] It is only an enemy, though keen in intellect, who says what is pleasing to the ears now (sāṃprata) but what transpires to be untrue and unwholesome afterwards. He never speaks wholesome things. Only a virtuous and sympathetic friend will speak such words as are unpleasant in the beginning but conducive to happiness in the end. But the third variety of behaviour nectar-like to the ears, conducive to happiness on all occasions, essential and truthful is considered to be the most excellent. [...]”.
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.
