Sudhī (सुधी) refers to “intelligent persons”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.43.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] there is no emotion or aberration at all in Śiva the supreme Being. He points out to the people of the world by his different actions, their respective goals. O sage, by reading or listening to this, intelligent persons in the world (sudhī—sarvalokasudhīrmune) secure good goal hereafter and excellent happiness in this world”.
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.
