purāṇa Denoting a tale ‘of olden times,’ is often found in the combination Itihāsa-Purāna, which is probably a Dvandva compound meaning * Itihāsa and Purāna.’ It some­times occurs as a separate word, but beside Itihāsa, no doubt with the same sense as in the Dvandva. Sāyana defines a Purāna as a tale which deals with the primitive condition of the universe and the creation of the world, but there is no ground for supposing that this view is correct, or for clearly distinguishing Itihāsa and Purāna. See Itihāsa.
