The poisonous and hot waters poured down by cloud-covered serpents by order of Indra [i.e., ujjhita—amarapājñayojjhitaṃ] become pure and fit for use on the reappearance of the star Canopus”.

Those rays of consciousness that, luminous, free of phenomenal signs and limitations are the sole cause of the outpouring of the four levels of Speech, are the best of Siddhas, namely, Khagendra and the rest who, always free of the perception of duality (bhedagraha-ujjhita), reside in the abode of the Void (of pure consciousness) in the form of the perceiving subject.

1) Ujjhitā (उज्झिता) refers to “(that which is) abandoned ”, according to the Vārāṇasīmāhātmya verse 1.116-125.—Accordingly, “[...] And there is no rebirth (udbhava) in this world for those Pāśupata sages who follow the observance of the skull, they who abide by the Atimārga. For the practitioners of the Atimārga there is only indifference. Those who have set out on the Atimārga only delight in indifference. Those who die on the saline ground go along that path, but of all saline grounds Vārāṇasī is the best, O sage. And there is no sprouting for those who die there. The body abandoned (ujjhitā) on the cremation ground merges in the Lord of Time (kālarāja-laya). [...]”.
2) Ujjhita (उज्झित) refers to “(being) free of the (unmeritorious karma)”, according to the Svacchandatantra verse 4.79b-81b.—Accordingly, “The Sādhaka is of two kinds. On the one hand, there is the śivadharmī, for whom the cosmic path is purified by Śaiva mantras and who is yoked to [particular] mantras that are to be mastered; he is knowledgeable, consecrated [to office], and devoted to the propitiation of mantras. This Śaiva Sādhaka is capable [of mastering] the threefold supernatural powers. The second [kind of Sādhaka] adheres to the mundane path and is devoted to the performance of good and meritorious works; desiring the fruits produced by [his] karma, he abides solely [devoted to] meritorious [karma], free of the unmeritorious (aśubha-ujjhita). [The Guru] should always perform the destruction of the unmeritorious portion [of the candidate’s karma] with mantras”.Source: SOAS University of London: Protective Rites in the Netra Tantra
Ujjhita (उज्झित) refers to “being free from (all danger)”, according to the Svacchanda-tantra.—Accordingly, [verse 7.210-211, while describing the meditation on the kālahaṃsa]—“Either by reciting or meditating on the kālahaṃsa, O Goddess, [the practitioner] becomes Śiva [who] has the form of kāla and acts freely (or as Svacchanda) like kāla. Death has been destroyed, [the Yogin] has abandoned old age, is free from all danger (sarvabhaya-ujjhita) [caused by] disease, [he] knows, learns, and day-dreams. [He] gains the all supreme siddhis, [which] arise constantly as a result of conquering kāla”.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.
General definition (in Jainism)
Ujjhita (उज्झित) refers to “(being) free from (attachment to things)” [?], according to Pūjyapāda’s Sarvārthasiddhi.—Accordingly, “[...] But there is nothing in the world which is permanent except the natural characteristics of knowledge and perception of the self. This is contemplation on the transitory nature of things. He who contemplates thus is free from intense attachment to persons and things (bhukta-ujjhita), and hence he does not feel stress when he loses them or separates from them as in the case of the garlands used and cast off”.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
