Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Śailadvārin (शैलद्वारिन्) refers to “one standing near the threshold of a mountain”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.45 (“Śiva’s comely form and the Jubilation of the Citizens”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “O excellent sage, when Śiva was nearing the threshold of the palace of Himavat (śailadvārin), there was much jubilation there. O excellent sage, who can describe the exquisite splendour of the supreme lord at that time. On seeing Him in that form Menā stood stunned as though drawn in a picture for a moment, O sage, and spoke these words”.
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.
