In Hinduism

Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Vijayin (विजयिन्) refers to a “victorious person”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.20 (“The celebration of Gaṇeśa’s marriage”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...]  Whoever reads, teaches, listens or narrates this story derives all desires. No doubt need be entertained in this respect. A brahmin derives brahminical splendour, a Kṣatriya becomes victorious (vijayin), a Vaiśya prosperous and a Śūdra attains equality with the good. A sick man becomes free from sickness; a frightened man becomes free from fear; no man is harassed by the visitation of goblins, ghosts etc. [...]”.
