Sṛṣṭikṛt (सृष्टिकृत्) refers to the “creator”, and is used as an epithet of Brahmā, in the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.17. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] Dakṣa was worried with thoughts. But he became greatly delighted at my sight. He asked me the purpose of my visit. Dakṣa said:—[...] ‘‘O creator [viz., Sṛṣṭikṛt], preceptor of the universe, be kind and tell me the purpose of your visit to me?’”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.

[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.
