Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Tyājya (त्याज्य) refers to “eschewed/excluded” (i.e., from sacrificial rites), and is used by the evil-minded Dakṣa to describe the Brahmins that walked out on his sacrifice, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.27. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] when the sage Dadhīci and others staged a walkout, the evil-minded Dakṣa, inimical to Śiva, said mocking at them.:—‘[...] They are slow-witted and senseless. They are rogues indulging in false deliberations and discussions. They are out of the Vedic circle. These men of evil conduct shall be eschewed from sacrificial rites (tyājya)’”.
