Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Bhukta (भुक्त) or Bhuktatva refers to “(that which has been) experienced”, according to the Jayadrathayāmala, Ṣaṭka 1 verse 13.3–18::—Accordingly, “[...] Thus, the Ācārya should only purify the bad [karma]. Alternatively, [only] the impure path is purified, [so that] no experience comes about [in the impure universe]. [In other words] that [experience] does not have to be experienced [anymore in the impure universe] because it has already been experienced (bhukta-tva) [through the process of initiation]. The soul [of the initiate] goes straight to the higher level (i.e. the pure universe). That is known to be the initiation called lokadharma, which leads to liberation. Such [an initiation] [is performed] when the past action has been destroyed, but the prārabdhakarma [is present], O loved one. [...]”.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.
General definition (in Jainism)
Bhukta (भुक्त) refers to “(having) used”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Brother, your roaming in the house that is this world [has been] for a long time. Those atoms of matter [com.—Also all atoms of matter (aṇavaḥ) are made use of (bhuktāḥ) by the state of the body (śarīratvena)] do not exist which have not gained the state of a body nor the state of food [for you]”.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
