Ājitā (आजिता) refers to one of the various Nṛsiṃha Yoginīs or Śaktis created for the purpose of pacifying the Rudraśaktis.—Accordingly, [...] Rudra meditated on Mahānṛsiṃha. Pleased with Rudra’s prayers, Narasiṃha created four Vyūhaśaktis [Vāgīśvarī, Mahāmāyā, Bhagamālinī and Atibhadrakālī=Śuṣkarevatī]. The Lord created a group of Nṛsiṃha Yoginīs [viz., Ājitā] to accompany the three main Śaktis. All of them, under the command of Śuṣkarēvatī, attacked the Rudraśaktis, subdued them and pacified them to attain benevolence.

The Śaivāgamas represent the wisdom that has come down from lord Śiva, received by Pārvatī and accepted by Viṣṇu. The Śaivāgamas are divided into four groups viz. Śaiva, Pāśupata, Soma and Lākula.

Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names
0. Ajita Thera: He belonged to a poor brahmin family of Savatthi, and was so called because at birth he was wrapped in an antelope skin. He saw the presentation of Jetavana and, impressed by the majesty of the Buddha, joined the Order and later became an arahant. But because of past misdeeds he remained unhonoured and unknown, and on this account was despised by worldly novices (Thag.129-30; ThagA.i.250f). He is evidently to be identified with Ghatamandadayaka Thera of the Apadana (ii.436). In a previous birth he gave butter as medicine to the Pacceka Buddha, Sucintita.
1. Ajita - A monk. He devoted his time to explaining the Patimokkha rules to the monks. At the time of the Second Council he was a monk of ten years standing and was appointed to assign seats to the Theras. Vin.ii.305
2. Ajita - A paribbajaka who visited the Buddha, and at whose instigation the Buddha preached to the Bhikkhus on the difference between dhamma and adhamma. A.v.229ff.
3. Ajita - A brahmin, the Bodhisatta in the time of Sobhita Buddha. J.i.35.
4. Ajita - General of the Licchavis and follower of the Buddha. Immediately after his death he was born in Tavatimsa; he visited the Buddha to refute a statement made about him by the naked ascetic Patikaputta to the effect that he had been born in the Mahaniraya as a result of having followed the teaching of the Buddha. D.iii.15-16; DA.iii.825.
5. Ajita manava
6. Ajita - Thera (Ap.i.335ff), probably to be identified with Ajita (5), but the story of his past differs completely from that of Ajita manava given in the Thag. Commentary. In the time of the Buddha Padumuttara he lit a lamp in front of the Enlightened One. As a result of this he enjoyed happiness in heaven for 60,000 kappas, and when he was born from Tusita in this Buddha age there was a great light on the day of his birth. He is stated to have been a disciple of Bavari (Ap.i.337, 28), but he heard of the Buddha while in Himava. Later he became an arahant.
7. Ajita - The lay name of Metteya Buddha in his last birth, when he will attain Enlightenment. Anagata Vamsa, pp. 43, 45, 56.
8. Ajita - A Pacceka Buddha who lived ninety one kappas ago. Dasaka Thera, in a previous birth, gave him mangoes to eat (Ajina). ThagA.i.68.
9. Ajita - A brahmin, a previous birth of Citapujaka Thera; he offered flowers to Sikhi Buddha. Ap.i.243.
Ajita Sutta - Preached by the Buddha to Ajita the Paribbajaka on the difference between dhamma and adhamma. A.v.229ff.
Theravāda is a major branch of Buddhism having the the Pali canon (tipitaka) as their canonical literature, which includes the vinaya-pitaka (monastic rules), the sutta-pitaka (Buddhist sermons) and the abhidhamma-pitaka (philosophy and psychology).
Tibetan Buddhism (Vajrayana or tantric Buddhism)Source: Wisdom Library: Tibetan Buddhism
Ajitā (अजिता) is the name of Dūtī (i.e., messengers of Lord Vajrapāṇi) mentioned as attending the teachings in the 6th century Mañjuśrīmūlakalpa: one of the largest Kriyā Tantras devoted to Mañjuśrī (the Bodhisattva of wisdom) representing an encyclopedia of knowledge primarily concerned with ritualistic elements in Buddhism. The teachings in this text originate from Mañjuśrī and were taught to and by Buddha Śākyamuni in the presence of a large audience (including Ajitā).Source: academia.edu: A Critical Study of the Vajraḍākamahātantrarāja (II)
Ajitā (अजिता) refers to one the twenty-four Horā (astronomical) Goddess to be invoked during pūjā (ritual offering) in Tantric Buddhism, according to the 9th-century Vajraḍākatantra chapter 18.61-74. [...] A Yogin, putting a vessel in the left side of him, offers various things together with raw flesh, fish, immortal nectar (pañcāmṛta). Then the Yogin invites Goddesses to please them with nectar—five Ḍākinīs and twenty-four Goddesses [viz., Ajitā] come to the Yogin’s place, forming a maṇḍala.
Tibetan Buddhism includes schools such as Nyingma, Kadampa, Kagyu and Gelug. Their primary canon of literature is divided in two broad categories: The Kangyur, which consists of Buddha’s words, and the Tengyur, which includes commentaries from various sources. Esotericism and tantra techniques (vajrayāna) are collected indepently.
General definition (in Buddhism)Source: Wisdom Library: Buddhism
Ajita (अजित) refers to one of the descendants of king Duppasaha: an ancient king from the Solar dynasty (sūryavaṃśa) and a descendant of Mahāsaṃmata, according to the Mahābuddhavaṃsa or Maha Buddhavamsa (the great chronicle of Buddhas) Anudīpanī chapter 1, compiled by Ven. Mingun Sayadaw. Duppasaha’s son founded Bārāṇasī and reigned. He and his descendants in that city were sixty. The last of these sixty kings was named Ajita. His son founded Kambala. He and his descendants in that city were eighty-four thousand. The last of these eighty-four thousand kings was named Brahmadatta.
General definition (in Jainism)Source: Wisdom Library: Jainism
Ajita (अजित):—The second Tīrthaṅkara (Janism recognizes 24 such teachers or Siddhas). He is also known as Ajitanātha. His colour is gold (kāñcana), according to Aparājitapṛcchā (221.5-7). His height is 450 dhanuṣa (a single dhanuṣa (or, ‘bow’) equals 6 ft), thus, roughly corresponding to 823 meters. His emblem, or symbol, is an Elephant.
Ajita’s father is Jitaśatru and his mother is Vijayā. It is an ancient Jain practice to worship the Tīrthaṅkara’s parents in various rites, such as the pratiṣṭhāvidhi, according to the Ācāradinakara (14th century work on Jain conduct written by Vardhamāna Sūri).Source: archive.org: The Jaina Iconography
1a) Ajita (अजित) is the name of the Yakṣa accompanying Suvidhinātha: the ninth of twenty-four Tīrthaṃkaras or Jinas.—Suvidhinātha has two names given to him, another being Puṣpadanta. There is a dispute over his emblem. Some say, it is a dolphin (Makara); others declare it is a crab. His Yakṣa and Yakṣiṇī are named Ajita and Sutārī Devī (Digambara: Mahākalī) respectively. The chowri-bearer has the name of Maghavatarāja. The religious tree under which he attained the Kevala knowledge is the Nāga according to some authorities, Malli according to other authorities.
Ajita’s symbol of a tortoise as a vehicle is admitted by both the sects. The attributes vary, however, with them. The Śvetāmbara image will hold in his hands, a citrus, rosary, mongoose anda spear. The image as conceived by the Digambaras will bear vice above a Śakti, Varada-mudrā, fruit and rosary.
1b) Ajita (अजित) is the name of the chowrie-bearer accompanying Munisuvrata: the twentieth of twenty-four Tīrthaṃkaras or Jinas.—The Jaina texts furnish the emblem of a tortoise which differentiates the image of this Jina from those of all the rest. The Yakṣa husband and wife are called Varuṇa and Naradattā (Digambara Bahurūpiṇī) respectively. The king who plays the part of his Chowri-bearer is named Ajita. The tree made sacred by being associated with the scene of his Kevala knowledge is Campaka.
2) Ajitā (अजिता) or Ajitabalā or Rohiṇī is the name of the Yakṣiṇī accompanying Ajitanātha: the second of twenty-four Tīrthaṃkaras or Jinas.—[...] Further, two other iconographic points by which Ajitanātha’s statues may be differentiated from those of others are the figures of his particular Yakṣa called Mahāyakṣa and his Yakṣiṇī named Ajitabalā. Mention of these is made in the Jaina canonical Literature.
Ajitā’s symbolic vehicle varies with different texts even among the same sect. For instance most of the Śvetāmbara books, in agreement with the Digambara books, give her an iron-seat (Lohāsana) but the Śvetāmbara text callef the Ācāradinakara makes her vehicle a bull. The other symbols, which she holds in her hands are constantly among the Śvetāmbara books as follows:—Varada-mudrā, noose, citron and goad. Except the. Yakṣiṇī’s common vehicle, the Digambara books furnish her hands differently with the following attributes:—Abhaya, conch and disc.Source: archive.org: Trisastisalakapurusacaritra
1) Ajita (अजित) refers to the second of the twenty-four Tīrthaṅkaras praised in the first book (ādīśvara-caritra) [chapter 1] of Hemacandra’s 11th century Triṣaṣṭiśalākāpuruṣacaritra (“lives of the 63 illustrious persons”): a Sanskrit epic poem narrating the history and legends of sixty-three important persons in Jainism.
Accordingly, “[...] we worship the Arhats, who at all times and all places purify the people of the three worlds by their name, representation, substance, and actual existence. [...] I praise the Arhat Ajita, the sun to the lotus-bed in the form of the universe, in the clear mirror of whose omniscience the world is reflected”.
Ajita is the son of Jitaśatru and Vijayā, according to chapter 1.6, “[...] In Bharata there will be twenty-three other Arhats and eleven other Cakrins. [...] Ajita, the son of Jitaśatru and Vijayā, in Ayodhyā, living for seventy-two lacs of pūrvas, gold-color, four hundred and fifty bows tall, will be an initiate for a lac of pūrvas less a pūrvāṅga. So there will be an interval of fifty lacs of crores of sāgaropamas between my nirvāṇa and that of Ajita”.
2) Ajita (अजित) is the name of a Yakṣa (i.e., Śāsanadevatās, ‘messenger-deities’) associated with Suvidhinātha, according to chapter 3.7 [suvidhinātha-caritra].—Accordingly:—“Originating in that congregation, Ajita, white-bodied, with a tortoise for a vehicle, holding a citron and a rosary in Ms right hands, an ichneumon and spear in her left hands, was the Lord’s messenger-deity always near. Likewise originating, Sutārā, fair-bodied, with a bull for a vehicle, holding a rosary in one right hand and the other in boon-granting position, holding a pitcher and a goad in her left hands, was the Lord’s messenger-deity always in attendance. With them always in his vicinity, the Lord of the World, a great ocean of compassion, wandered over the earth, enlightening the people”.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.

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.
