Bhūmiṣṭha (भूमिष्ठ) refers to “terrestrial water”, as (probably) mentioned in verse 5.4-5 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] Indric water placed in a beautiful cup (and remaining) unspoiled one may always drink. In case of its absence, however, (it is water springing) in a clean, vast, and black- or white(-soiled) region (and) hit by sun and wind that (is) most similar [viz., bhūyiṣṭha=bhūmiṣṭha] to atmospheric (water)”.

Note: Bhūyiṣṭha [bhūyiṣṭham] (“most”) has been replaced by thaṅ-la gnas, lit. (“to be found in the steppe”), which proves beyond doubt that the basic text had bhūmiṣṭha [bhūmiṣṭham] (“terrestrial”) instead (thus also Candranandana, Hemādri, and Indu).
