Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Strītva (स्त्रीत्व) refers to “womanhood”, as defined in the Śivapurāṇa 1.17. Accordingly, “Brahmin women must take instruction from a preceptor and perform the Japa with Namaḥ at the end. They shall repeat the five-syllabled mantra five hundred thousand times for their longevity. That is the rule. Again they must repeat it five hundred thousand times to wipe off womanhood (strītva). Becoming a man first, the liberation will be acquired gradually”.
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.
