Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Guṇin (गुणिन्) refers to “one having good qualities”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.35 (“The story of Padmā and Pippalāda”).—Accordingly, as Dharma said to Padmā (wife of sage Pippalāda): “O chaste lady, you are blessed, you are devotedly attached to your husband. [...] Undoubtedly you will become the mother of ten sons who will be greater than your husband, they will have all good qualities (guṇin) and live long. O chaste lady, let your abode be endowed with all riches, brightly illuminated always and superior to even the abode of Kubera. [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.

General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Guṇin (गुणिन्) or Praguṇin refers to “those who are correctly” [?] (practising the twelve reflections), according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Certainly, O friend, these twelve reflections are the female friends of those whose good fortune is liberation [and] they are practised to procure their friendship by wise men who are absorbed in connection [with them]. When these [reflections] are correctly done (praguṇin-kṛtā—etāsu praguṇīkṛtāsu niyataṃ) constantly for the pleasure of the lords of Yogīs (i.e. the Jinas), a joyful woman in the form of liberation with a heart kindly disposed to love, is produced”.
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.
