The Siva Purana focuses on Siva and Parvati. The surviving manuscripts exist in many different versions and with differing content. Klaus Klostermaier (2007, 503) places the oldest surviving manuscript in the tenth or eleventh century CE.

The oldest surviving chapters of the Shiva Purana contain significant Advaita Vedanta philosophy.

Brahmaloka, also called Satyaloka, is the abode of Brahma. (Pt 1, p. 35 n)

Suta:

To help others is indeed a virtue. (cf. 1.36)

Study of the sastras (sacred lore) and of commenting on the Vedas are very difficult benefits to attain in the world. (2.26)
