Tāḍita (ताडित) refers to “being hit” (viz., on the vulnerable points), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.28. Accordingly as Śiva said to Satī:—“[...] people wounded with arrows by enemies are not so pained as when their vulnerable points (marma-tāḍita) are hit by the taunting words of kinsmen. O beloved, the wicked people do not observe that their own status is being hit when they attack good men endowed with the six qualities of learning”.

Tāḍita (ताडित) refers to “beatings”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, “How then, son of good family, does the patience of the Bodhisattvas becomes like open space? Son of good family, the patience of the Bodhisattva becomes like the expanse of the sky when he is endowed with the four dharmas. What are those four? To wit, 1) never responding to abuse with more abuse because the speech is like open space; 2) never responding to beatings (tāḍita) with more beatings because the body is like open space; 3) never responding to insults with more insults because the thought is like open space; 4) never responding to anger with more anger because the intention is like open space. When he is endowed with those four dharmas, son of good family, the patience of the Bodhisattvas becomes like open space”.
