Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Vaiparītya (वैपरीत्य) refers to the “contrary”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.15 (“Gaṇeśa’s battle”).—Accordingly, as Gaṇeśa said to Śiva’s attendants: “[...] I have never fought in a battle before. I am a mere boy. I am going to fight now. Still if you are put to shame, it will be shameful to Śiva and Pārvatī. But that will not happen to me. If I am put to shame, the contrary (vaiparītya) will happen to me. Pārvatī and Śiva will be put to shame but not I. [...]”.
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.
