Akṛṣṭapacyā (अकृष्टपच्या) refers to the “earth being exuberant in productivity without being tilled”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.15 (“The penance and reign of Tārakāsura”).—Accordingly, after Tāraka requested boons from Brahmā: “[...] That great demon [i.e., Tāraka] was crowned the king of the three worlds with the permission of Śukra, the preceptor of the demons. [...] Wherever a fine article was espied by the demon, he seized it immediately. The three worlds became void of all valuable things. O sage, the oceans the offered him their gems on account of fear. The entire earth became exuberant in productivity without being tilled [i.e., akṛṣṭapacyā] and yielded what his subjects desired. [...]”.
