Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Sarvadarśana (सर्वदर्शन) refers to “one who is all-seeing” and is used to describe Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.22 (“Description of Pārvatī’s penance”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī thought to herself: “[...] In the Śāstras and the Vedas, lord Śiva is always sung in praise by the sages as the bestower of welfare, omniscient, all-pervading and all-seer [i.e., sarvadarśana]. The lord is the bestower of all riches, the moulder of fine emotions, the bestower of the desires of devotees and the remover of their distress. If I am devoted to the bull-bannered lord, discarding all desires, may He be pleased with me. [...]”.
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.
