Kṣipat (क्षिपत्) or Pratikṣipat refers to “rejecting”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, “[...] At that time, sixty koṭis of Bodhisattvas, having stood up from the congregation, joined their palms, paid homage to the Lord, and then uttered these verses in one voice: ‘[...] (226) ‘We are ascetics [only in name], but do not have the qualities of ascetics’. Hearing the true accusation, they will reject (pratikṣipat) this Sūtra. (227) Just as a mirror would never bring pleasure to those who had their noses and ears sliced off, so, having heard the true accusation, they will reject (kṣipat) the true dharma. [...]’”.
