Uddharaṇa (उद्धरण) refers to “rooting out (the tree of desire)”, as mentioned in the Yogavasistha 6.33 (“Resolution of duality into unity”).—Accordingly, as Īśvara says to Vasiṣṭha: “[...] It is the thought or imagination, that makes the false world appear as true; and it depends upon the thought also, that the world vanishes into nothing. It is the net work of our thoughts and desires, that is interwoven with the threads of our repeated births; but the winds of our apathy and indifference blow off this web, and settle us in the state of supreme felicity. Avarice is a thorny plant, that has taken deep root in the human heart; it is fostered under the shade of the arbor of desire, root out this tree of desire (saṃkalpamūla-uddharaṇa), and the thorny bush of avarice will fade away of itself. [...]”.
