Saṃsmṛtya (संस्मृत्य) refers to “remembering (Śiva)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.48 (“Description of Marriage of Śiva and Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] Urged by Śiva mentally O Nārada, you, the knower of Brahman with mind fixed in Śiva, played on your Vīṇā. You were forbidden strictly by the lord of mountains, Viṣṇu, gods, sages and by me. When at the will of Śiva you did not desist from it, you were again spoken to thus by the mountain then—‘Do not play on the Vīṇā now’. O celestial sage, O wise one, when you were thus strenuously forbidden, you remembered (su-saṃsmṛtya) Śiva and spoke to the lord of the mountains. [...]”.
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.
