Ganitashastra (Mathematics and Algebra)

Source: Hindu Mathematics

1) Bhāvita (भावित) refers to the “product” or “multiplication” (of two or more unknown quantities), according to the principles of Bījagaṇita (“algebra” or ‘science of calculation’), according to Gaṇita-śāstra, ancient Indian mathematics and astronomy.—The symbols for powers and roots are abbreviations of Sanskrit words of those imports and are placed after the number affected. [...] The product of two or more unknown quantities is indicated by writing bhā (from bhāvita, product) after the unknowns with or without interposed dots ; e.g., yāva-kāgha-bhā [or yāvakāghabhā] means () ().

Brahmagupta (628) in the Brāhmasphuṭasiddhānta: “The product of two like unknowns is a square; the product of three or more like unknowns is a power of that designation. The multiplication of unknowns of unlike species is the same as the mutual product of symbols; it is called bhāvita (product or factum)”.

Bhāskara II in the Bījagaṇita: “A known quantity multiplied by an unknown becomes unknown; the product of two, three or more unknowns of like species is its square, cube, etc.; and the product of those of unlike species is their bhāvita. [...]”.

2) Bhāvita (भावित) refers to “equations involving products of unknowns” and represents one of the classes of Samīkaraṇa (“equations”), according to the principles of Bījagaṇita.—Brahmagupta (628) in the Brāhmasphuṭasiddhānta has classified equations as three classes [e.g., equations involving products of unknowns (bhāvita)] [...]. Pṛthūdakasvāmī (860) in his commentary on the Brāhmasphuṭasiddhānta by Brahmagupta adopts four classes.

Yoga (school of philosophy)

[«previous next»] — Bhavita in Yoga glossary
Source: ORA: Amanaska (king of all yogas): A Critical Edition and Annotated Translation by Jason Birch

Bhāvita (भावित) refers to “having manifested (one’s supreme bliss)”, according to Hemacandra’s Yogaśāstra (verse 12.33-35).—Accordingly, [while describing a method for conquering the mind]: “[He whose] self is constantly immersed in detachment; [who is] free from effort and whose supreme bliss has manifested (bhāvita-paramānanda), does not fix his mind on any place. A mind that is disregarded by the self, never governs the sense organs and so, even the sense organs do not act with respect to their own respective objects. When the self does not impel the mind and the mind does not impel the sense organs, then [the mind] which falls away from both, naturally attains dissolution”.

If these seeds are mixed in dry buffalo dung and earth and sown and watered with coconut water (gale water?) they turn into a plant of Nymphaea alba or Nymphaea nouchali and there is no wonder”.
