Vījyamāna (वीज्यमान) refers to “having fanned”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.40 (“The Marriage Procession of Śiva”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] O sage, Viṣṇu, seated on Garuḍa and going in the middle of the group shone with the great umbrella held aloft. He was surrounded by his attendants who fanned (vījyamāna) him with Cāmaras. His Pārṣadas too shone well. He was bedecked in all his ornaments. I too shone well on the way with the Vedas, Śāstras, Purāṇas and Āgamas personified and along with my sons, Prajāpatis, Sanaka and other Siddhas. I was eager in rendering service to Śiva. [...]”.

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.
