The term प्राप्य (prāpya) is defined as क्रियाकृ-तविशेषानवगतौ कर्तुः क्रियया अनास्थितं आस्थितं वा यदवाप्यते तत् प्राप्यं कर्म । (kriyākṛ-taviśeṣānavagatau kartuḥ kriyayā anāsthitaṃ āsthitaṃ vā yadavāpyate tat prāpyaṃ karma |) cf. कर्तुरीप्सितमं कर्म । ततु त्रिविधं निर्वर्त्ये विकार्यं प्राप्यमिति । यस्य क्रियाकृतानां विशेषाणां सर्वथानुपलब्धिः तत् प्राप्यम् (karturīpsitamaṃ karma | tatu trividhaṃ nirvartye vikāryaṃ prāpyamiti | yasya kriyākṛtānāṃ viśeṣāṇāṃ sarvathānupalabdhiḥ tat prāpyam).

Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions (philosophy)
Prāpya (प्राप्य) refers to “(that which can be) obtained”, according to the Utpaladeva’s Vivṛti on Īśvarapratyabhijñākārikā 1.5.8-9.—Accordingly, “[...] And this mere [realization that the object is something separated from the subject] is not enough to transform this object into something on which [human] activity may be exerted; therefore [this object] is [also] made manifest as having a specific place and time, because only a particular having a specific place and time can be something on which [human] activity may be exerted, since [only such a particular] can be obtained (prāpya-tva) and since [only such a particular] may have the efficacy that [we] expect [from it]. [...]”.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.

Prāpya (प्राप्य) (Cf. Etya) refers to “having arrived”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Fool, just as birds stay in a tree, having come [com.—prāpya—‘having arrived’] from another country, so sentient beings from another life [stay] in the tree of a family”.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
