Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Vilasat (विलसत्) means “brilliantly”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.6.—Accordingly, as Menā eulogised Goddess Śivā:—“Great favour has been shown by you, O Goddess, O mother of the universe, inasmuch as you have manifested yourself in front of me brilliantly [i.e., vilasat]. You are the primordial one among all Energies. O Śivā, you are the mother of the three worlds. O Goddess you are the beloved of Śiva, you are great goddess eulogised by the gods. O great Goddess, be pleased. Remain in my meditation in this form, but have the form of my daughter in public view”.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
