Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Śailādhirāja (शैलाधिराज) refers to the “lord of the mountains” and is used to describe Himavat (Himācala), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.21 (“Nārada instructs Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā said to Nārada: “[...] Thus Pārvatī was much distressed in mind due to separation from Śiva. She did not at all feel happy. She always muttered ‘Śiva, Śiva’. O dear, with her consciousness centred round the Pināka-bearing lord, she continued to stay in the palace of her father. Śiva bewailed much and fainted frequently. The lord of the mountains [i.e., śailādhirāja], Menakā, and their sons chief of whom was Maināka of undisturbed mind, tried to console her but still she did not forget Śiva. [...]”.
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 to German]
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.
