Sarvabhautika (सर्वभौतिक) refers to “food for-all-demons”, as mentioned in Chapter 12 (“offering food”) of the Susiddhikara-sūtra. Accordingly, “If among the offering rites you see one with ‘sarvabhautika (for-all-demons) food,’ [use] sāyalika (?) cakes, liṅgilika (?) cakes, jambūliya (?) cakes, tilapiṣṭaka cakes, boiled rice mixed with curds, and roots and fruits, or else take one or two tasty [dishes] from among the dishes described earlier and set them down, put parched rice, flowers, and leaves in a large vessel and fill it with water, and [then] discard it far away from the site of recitation: this is [sarvabhautika food]”.
