Dvijayoṣit (द्विजयोषित्) refers to the “Brahmin ladies”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.47 (“The ceremonious entry of Śiva”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] Thus, worshipping each other Śiva and Pārvatī identifying themselves with the universe, shone well. Both of them, enveloped by the glory of the three worlds and gazing at each other, were offered the Nīrājana by Lakṣmī and other ladies particularly. The Brahmin ladies (dvijayoṣit) and the citizen ladies performed the Nīrājana rites. All of them derived great pleasure and gaiety on seeing Śiva and Pārvatī”.
