Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Yathāruci (यथारुचि) means “to accept one with pleasure”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.10.—Accordingly, as Śiva said to the Earth (Dharaṇī):—“O Earth, you are blessed. Rear this child of mine lovingly, born [i.e., udbhūta] of my glittering drops of sweat over you. Although the child is born of the sweat of my body, O Earth, he will be famous in the world after your name. He will be a bestower of pleasures and will be free from the three distresses always. This boy of yours will be a bestower of lands and will have good qualities. He will make me too happy. Accept him with pleasure”.
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.
