Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Smarantī (स्मरन्ती) (Cf. Smarat) refers to “remembering”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.21 (“Nārada instructs Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā said to Nārada: “[...] She [Pārvatī] did not achieve happiness and peace in sleeping, drinking, bathing, or sitting amidst her maids. Remembering [i.e., smarantī] the various gestures and movements of Śiva, she muttered to herself ever and anon—‘Fie upon my beauty. Fie on my birth and activity’. Thus Pārvatī was much distressed in mind due to separation from Śiva. She did not at all feel happy. She always muttered ‘Śiva, 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.
