Parityajya (परित्यज्य) refers to “abandon” (i.e., ‘to leave a particular region’), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.16 (“Brahmā consoles the gods”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā said to Tāraka: “You are ruling over our heaven which contains the essence of all brilliance. You are desirous of getting more than what you bargained for at the time of your penance. I granted you a boon but not the kingdom of heaven. Hence leave off this region [i.e., parityajya]. You can rule over the earth. O best of Asuras, even there you can achieve the fruit of your activities as here in Devaloka. There is nothing to hesitate in this matter. [...]”.
