Vihārin (विहारिन्) refers to “one who is sportive” and is used to describe Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.11.—Accordingly, as Himavat (Himālaya) eulogised Śiva: “O great god, lord of the gods, O lord Śiva, the three worlds are sustained by you alone who are lord of the worlds. Obeisance to Thee, O lord of gods, obeisance to the one who has assumed the form of a Yogin [i.e., yogirūpa-dhara], obeisance to Thee that art possessed and devoid of attributes and obeisance to Thee who art sportive [i.e., vihārin]. [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.
