Umāmaheśvaravrata (उमामहेश्वरव्रत) or simply Umāmaheśvara refers to type of Vrata (“religious observances”), according to the 10th century Saurapurāṇa: one of the various Upapurāṇas depicting Śaivism.—Accordingly, the Umāmaheśvara-vrata is described in the Saurapurāṇa 43.1-17. The Sūta gives the tradition of receiving knowledge about this vrata. In the past it was told by Śaṅkara to Pārvatī and Skanda. Skanda imparted it to Agastya and the latter instructed it to Vyāsa and from Vyāsa the Sūta received this knowledge. About the efficacy of this vrata it is said that it destroys all sins and bestows dharma, artha, kāma and mokṣa.
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.
