Vidyārthin (विद्यार्थिन्) refers to a “student”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.5.5 (“The Tripuras are fascinated).—Accordingly, as Arihan said to the Lord of the Three Cities: “O ruler of the Asuras, listen to my statement, pregnant with wisdom. It is the essence of the Vedānta and bears high esoteric importance. [...] Protection shall be granted to the frightened, medicine to the sick, learning to the student (vidyārthin) and food to the hungry. All sorts of charitable gifts recommended by the sages do not merit even a sixteenth part of the gift of protection to a living being. [...]”.
