Jyotisha (astronomy and astrology)Source: Google Books: Studies in the History of the Exact Sciences (Astronomy)
Abhihata (अभिहत) (Cf. Nirbhata) refers to a “smitten” (e.g., by a metor).—Since the expression nakṣatram ulkābhihataṃ (‘the meteor smitten asterism’) is found in the ninth verse of the same hymn [i.e., Atharvaveda 19.9], it seems that the author of the hymn intended to give mantras for appeasing the inauspicious phenomena in the sky.
Jyotisha (ज्योतिष, jyotiṣa or jyotish) refers to ‘astronomy’ or “Vedic astrology” and represents the fifth of the six Vedangas (additional sciences to be studied along with the Vedas). Jyotisha concerns itself with the study and prediction of the movements of celestial bodies, in order to calculate the auspicious time for rituals and ceremonies.
Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)Source: Wisdom Library: Maha Prajnaparamita Sastra
Abhihata (अभिहत) refers to “panic”, according to Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra (chapter 3).—Accordingly, “The Buddha said to Ānanda: ‘[...] Henceforth the Pratimokṣasūtra will be your great teacher (mahācārya). You should carry out bodily activities (kāyakarman) and vocal actions (vākkarman) according to the instructions of the Pratimokṣasūtra.—After my nirvāṇa, your guide (chaṇḍaka), O Bhikṣu, will be the punishment according to the rule of Brahmā (brahmadaṇḍa).—If someone is in a state of mind of panic (abhihata-citta), he should be taught the Saṃthakātyāyanasūtra; then he will be able to obtain the Path. [...]’.”.
