Samutsava (समुत्सव) refers to the “great festivities” during the marriage of Menā and Himavat, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.1.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] On hearing these words of the gods, pondering over them and remembering the curse incurred by their daughters, the forefathers said ‘Amen’ to their proposals. They gave their daughter Menā to Himavat. In that auspicious marriage there were great festivities (i.e., samutsava)”.
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.

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.
