Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Ādhibhautika (आधिभौतिक) refers to “[hindrances] of a physical nature”, representing one of the three types of hindrances (vighna), as mentioned in the Śivapurāṇa 1.18.—Accordingly, “[...] an intelligent man must worship all deities in order to ward off all sorts of hindrances (vighna). [...] The second type of hindrance is Ādhibhautika (extraneous one of a physical nature). The visitations of Piśācas, the outcome of ant-hills etc, falling of lizards and other insects, the advent of tortoise inside the house, infesting of serpents, untimely flowering of trees, deliveries in inauspicious hours and other things indicate some future misery. Hence these are called Ādhibhautika hindrances. [...] In order to ward off these hindrances and on occasions when one touches a corpse, a Cāṇḍāla or a fallen man and goes inside without bathing, Śānti Yajña shall be performed to remove the evil effects”.
