Anuṣṭheya (अनुष्ठेय) refers to “that (action) to be done”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Having discerned that [action] to be done (anuṣṭheya) by this human body which produces purity in both worlds, action in a manner different from this is to be abandoned”.
