Atiśṛta (अतिशृत) refers to “excessively boiled”, as mentioned in verse 5.28-29 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] among the (different kinds of milk [viz., payas]), [...] raw [viz., āma] milk (is) causative of effluxions (and) heavy, properly boiled one different from this; very heavy is (milk that has been) excessively boiled [viz., atiśṛta]; (that which is still) warm from milking (is) nectar-like”.

Note: Atiśṛta (“excessively boiled”) has been interchanged with garīyas and, like the preceding yuktyā śṛtam, reproduced by a gerundial clause: śin-tu bskol-na (“if excessively boiled”).—bsko (for bskol) in N is a xylographical error.
