Sarvasampad (सर्वसम्पद्) refers to “all sorts of riches”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.33 (“The appeasement of Himavat”).—Accordingly, as Vasiṣṭha said to Himavat (Himācala): “[...] All riches can be sacrificed (sarvasampad—nāśyāḥ sarvā hi sampadaḥ), O lord of mountains, for the sake of a single entity, but the eternal Śruti has it that one should forsake a single entity for the sake of a unit. When danger was imminent at the hands of a Brahmin, the chief of kings, Anaraṇya, saved his entire asset by giving his daughter to him. [...]”.
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.
