Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Svaputra (स्वपुत्र) refers to “one’s own son”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.14 (“The Birth of Tāraka and Vajrāṅga”).—Accordingly, as Nārada said to Brahmā: “[...] How did Śivā perform the severe penance for the sake of happiness? How did the primordial energy who is greater than the universe secure Śiva as her husband? O great scholar, narrate all these complete in every detail to me, your son [i.e., svaputra], who has dedicated his soul to Śiva and who has developed full faith in Him”.
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.
