Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Uddīpakara (उद्दीपकर) refers to “that which heightens (the temptations of love)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.18 (“Description of the perturbation caused by Kāma”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated: “After going there, the haughty Kāma, deluded by Śiva’s magic power, stationed himself, after first spreading the enchanting power of Spring all around. [...] O sage, diverse sounds of the hummings of the bees rang sweet in the ears of everyone heightening temptations of love [i.e., kāma-uddīpakara]. The bright light of the moon scattered all around appeared to be the emissary of lovers and their beloveds. [...]”.
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.
