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. [...]”.
