Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Uṣṇavāta (उष्णवात) refers to “hot wind” and represents a type of Ādhidaivika pain, according to the Viṣṇu-purāṇa 6.5.1-6. Accordingly, “the wise man having investigated the three kinds of worldly pain, or mental and bodily affliction and the like, and having acquired true wisdom, and detachment from human objects, obtains final dissolution.”
Ādhidaivika and its subdivisions (eg., uṣṇavāta) represents one of the three types of worldly pain (the other two being ādhyātmika and ādhibhautika) and correspond to three kinds of affliction described in the Sāṃkhyakārikā.
The Viṣṇupurāṇa is one of the eighteen Mahāpurāṇas which, according to tradition was composed of over 23,000 metrical verses dating from at least the 1st-millennium BCE. There are six chapters (aṃśas) containing typical puranic literature but the contents primarily revolve around Viṣṇu and his avatars.Source: Wisdom Library: Viṣṇu-purāṇa
