Susthira (सुस्थिर) refers to “sitting (steady)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.22 (“Description of Pārvatī’s penance”).—Accordingly, after Menā spoke to Pārvatī: “[...] In the summer she kept a perpetually blazing fire all round and remaining within continued muttering the mantra. In the rainy season she continuously remained sitting [i.e., susthira-āsana] on the bare ground on the rock and got herself drenched by the downpour of rain. During the winter, with great devotion she remained in water throughout. During snowfall and in the nights too she performed her penance observing fast”.
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.
