Sarvabhūteśa (सर्वभूतेश) refers to the “lord of living beings”, and is used as an epithet of Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.19. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] then Viṣṇu stood up. Approaching Śiva with palms joined in reverence [viz., kṛtāñjali] and accompanied by Lakṣmī, the Garuḍa-vehicled God Viṣṇu spoke thus: ‘[...] O lord of living beings (Sarvabhūteśa), this is my humble submission. you shall kill the man, whoever it may be, who sees or hears her with lust in his mind’”.
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.
