Viśrāmārtha (विश्रामार्थ) means “for the purpose of resting”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.52 (“The bridegroom’s party is fed and Śiva retires to bed”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] Then the mountain invited all the gods and others along with the lord for taking food, through his sons and others. [...] After taking meals and rinsing their mouths Viṣṇu and others went to their apartments for rest (viśrāmārtha). [...]”.
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.
