Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Snehakartṛ (स्नेहकर्तृ) or Snehakartṛka refers to the “cause of great affection”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.5 (“Kārttikeya is crowned”).—Accordingly, after the Kṛttikās spoke to Kārttikeya: “[...] On seeing Pārvatī and Śiva, Kārttikeya got down from the chariot immediately and saluted them. Embracing him with love, Śiva kissed Kumāra on the head. He, the cause of great affection (snehakartṛka), was highly delighted. Embracing him in great excitement and melting with love, Pārvatī suckled him at her breasts. [...]”.
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.
