Tilapuṣpa (तिलपुष्प) refers to the “flowers of the Tila plant”, which are used in the worship of Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.1.14:—“[...] twenty prasthas of Mallikā flowers constitute a hundred thousand; while so many flowers (puṣpa) of gingelly plant (tila) measure a little less than a prastha. [...] The devotee shall perform the worship of Śiva with different flowers after considering these modes of calculation for the fulfilment of desires if he has any or for the sake of salvation if he has no desire”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.
