Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Svarocis (स्वरोचिस्).—A son born to the king Dyutimān by his wife Varūthinī. He had learned the languages of all the living creatures from Vibhāvarī, the daughter of Mandāra a Vidyādhara, and the art called "Padminīvidyā" from Kalāvatī the daughter of Para, a Yakṣa.
Three sons, named Vijaya, Merumanda, and Prabhāva were born to Svarocis by his three wives Manoramā, Vibhāvā, and Kalāvatī. Later from a jungle goddess another son named Svārociṣa also was born to Svarocis. Svārociṣa who was also called Dyntimān, became an emperor afterwards. (Mārkaṇḍeya Purāṇa, 61).
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.

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.
