Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Tapaścaraṇa (तपश्चरण) refers to the “performance of penance”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.22 (“Description of Pārvatī’s penance”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī performed her penance: “[...] Different sorts of worries she did not mind at all. O sage, fixing her mind in Śiva alone she remained firm and steady. The first year she spent in taking fruits, the second in taking leaves, in the course of her penance. She spent many years thus. Then Śivā, the daughter of Himavat, eschewed even the leaves. She did not take any food. She was engrossed in the performance of penance [i.e., tapaścaraṇa]. [...]”.
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.
