Bhuktodgīrṇa (भुक्तोद्गीर्ण) refers to “vomiting the food one has eaten”, according to the Kubjikāmata-tantra, the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “[...] He who has stolen the Yoga of the Command and (the knowledge of) ritual and mantra (from his teacher) and (then) flees, does not achieve (true) balance. How can (that) fool stand (firmly). (He is) like (someone whose) body (is sick) that vomits (the food he) has eaten (bhuktodgīrṇa). Whether he feels hungry or not, the body (of this) contemptuous one (is always) thin (and emaciated)”.
