Bhujiṣya (भुजिष्य, “liberating”) or Bhujiṣyaśīla refers to the “liberating moralities”, according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter 36.—Accordingly, “following morality, not following after external conditions (bāhyapratyaya), like the independent (svatantra) unfettered man, observing pure morality without being enslaved by desire (tṛṣṇādāsya), this is ‘liberating morality’ (bhujiṣya)”.
