Dṛṣṭipatha (दृष्टिपथ) refers to “that which is seen” (lit., ‘have come to the path of sight’), according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Those objects having a pleasant form, which are seen (dṛṣṭipathaye dṛṣṭipatham āyātāḥ) in the morning and not at midday, vanish for the embodied souls in this world”.
