Sākṣita (साक्षित) refers to “inherent nature”, according to the Mahānayaprakāśa verse 2.1-35, while explaining the cycles of the goddesses of consciousness.—Accordingly, “[...] All the aforementioned states (bhāva), including those in the inner body, are made clearly manifest by the organs of action. Here this Sacrifice, witnessed as it is by it own inherent nature (sva-sākṣita), is clearly perceived to be in accord with this goddess's nature. It is the inner repose that is the forgetting of those (previous states and manifestations) that takes place in that moment because all desire (for them) has ceased. (The supreme reality is) perceived externally by means of that (energy) due to the cessation the activity of each (of the phases of consciousness). That is the Sacrifice where (all) states subsequently repose”.
