Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Snāpayitvā (स्नापयित्वा) refers to “being bathed”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.47 (“The ceremonious entry of Śiva”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “First of all she was bathed (snāpayitvā), then bedecked with the ornaments. The Nīrājana rites too were also performed by the maids and Brahmin women. The daughter of the mountain and the beloved of Śiva, the lovely lady shone with the pair of fresh clothes. O sage, an exquisite divine jacket studded with various gems was worn by the goddess who shone all the more. [...]”.
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.
