Udbhāvana (उद्भावन) refers to “that which produces (a faculty)” (of knowing something), according to the Śyainika-śāstra: a Sanskrit treatise dealing with the divisions and benefits of Hunting and Hawking, written by Rājā Rudradeva (or Candradeva) in possibly the 13th century.—Accordingly, “Hunting on horseback (āśvina) represents one of the eight subdivisions of Hunting (mṛgayā). [...] The practice of hunting on horseback reduces fat, lightens the body, enhances strength and ambition, hardens the muscles, kindles appetite, produces a capacity for enduring [...], produces a faculty (svasattva-udbhāvana) of knowing the movements and minds of animals [...]. These and many such excellences are acquired by it for one’s own benefit. [...]”.
