General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: The Jaina Iconography
Viditā (विदिता) (or Vijayā, Vairoṭi) is the name of the Yakṣiṇī accompanying Vimalanātha: the thirteenth of twenty-four Tīrthaṃkaras or Jinas, commonly depicted in Jaina iconography.—Jaina liturgical treatises attribute to Vimalanātha, the thirteenth Jina, the Lāñchana or symbol of the boar. The particular attendant spirits attached to him are named as Ṣaṇmukha and Vairoṭi (Śvetāmbara: Viditā). The King to stand for his fanner is called Svayaṃbhu-Vāsudeva. His Kevala tree is Jambu (Black-berry).
The Śvetāmbaras know this Yakṣiṇī as Viditā or Vijayā. She is described in their books as seated on a lotus and as having four hands with an arrow, noose, bow and snake. The Digambara Vairoṭi appears in representations as riding on a snake (Goṇasa) and bearing in her hands two snakes, bow and arrow. Vairoṭi figures also like others as a Vidyādevī. The other name of Viditā means “learned one”. This would suggest the central idea of Goddess of learning. In other respects, Viditā or Vijayā with her colour of yellow, symbols of bow, arrow, snake and lotus or the vehicle or Goṇasa seems to be a clear derivative of a form of Durgā. The name of Vijayā, it is worth observing, retains the original name of her archetype.
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. 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.
