Trailokya (त्रैलोक्य) (“three worlds”) refers to Bhūta (past), Bhavya (future) and Bhavat (present), according to the Brahmāṇḍa-purāṇa 2.38. Accordingly, “The Indras of all the Manvantaras of the past (bhūta), present (bhavat) and future (bhavya) should be known as having equal (similar) characteristic features. [...] It is remembered by the Brāhmaṇas that Bhūta, Bhavya and Bhavat are the three worlds (trailokya). This Bhūrloka (Earth) is remembered as Bhūta; the Antarīkṣa (Atmosphere) is remembered as Bhavat. The Diva (Heaven) is remembered as Bhavya”.
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.
