Vijaya – Why Arjuna in the Mahabharat is also known as Vijaya?

Vijaya is one among the ten names of Arjuna in the Mahabharata. Vijaya narrates the meaning of his names to Uttara, son of Virata. Kaurava army had stolen the cows of Virata. To get them back, the son of Virata went to battlefield with Arjuna, who was disguised as Brihannada, as his charioteer.
On seeing the Kuru army, the prince is frightened and attempts to escape from the battleground. Brihannada stops him and reveals that he is Arjuna and he will fight against the Kauravas.
But the prince is not ready to believe Brihannada. He then wants to know the various names of Arjuna. To convince the frightened prince, Arjuna narrates all his ten names and how he got them.
Arjuna in the Mahabharat is known as Vijaya because when he goes out to fight against those who are indomitable in battle, he never return without vanquishing them.
Arjuna single handedly defeats the entire Kuru army and retrieves the cows of Virata.
This incident is mentioned in the Go – Grahana Parva in the Mahabharata…

Many Jivas are only reflected images of the one real self – Sri Ramana Maharishi

All loss, all vice, and all suffering are only due to the sense of ‘I’. All gain, all virtue and all happiness come from the extinction of the ego.
To the ignorant one the Self is lost on account of his ego sense. Therefore, even if he gains all things, he is still poor. On the other hand the sage, who has gained his Self by the extinction of the ego, sees nothing else to be gained.
There are no real fragments of the one supreme consciousness. The fragments appear only because of ignorance. To the sage in the supreme state, that consciousness shines as one whole, not divided into parts.
There is neither bondage nor deliverance for the real Self, who remains unswervingly whole and solitary.
In the waters of separate vessels there appear many different images of the one moon. Similarly, in the minds that inhabit bodies there appear many jivas, which are only reflected images of the one real Self.
Sri Ramana Maharishi
