Upekṣita (उपेक्षित) refers to “(that which is) overlooked”according to the Yogacintāmaṇi, a 16th-century text on Yoga by Godāvaramiśra.—Accordingly, “In this text, I summarise and examine Patañjali’s doctrine, which was explained by Vyāsa, Vācaspati and Bhojadeva and which is validated and [yet] overlooked (upekṣitasiddhaṃ yad upekṣitaṃ) elsewhere”.

Note: The codex reads upekṣitaṃ, but Gode (1953, 474) transcribes it as apekṣitaṃ. Whether he was tacitly emending upekṣitaṃ to apekṣitaṃ is not clear. He may have emended because the meaning of apekṣita is more consistent with siddha, but it seems possible that upekṣita was intended to contrast with siddha.

Upekṣita (उपेक्षित) refers to “having disregarded (one’s mind)”, according to Hemacandra’s Yogaśāstra (verse 12.33-35).—Accordingly, [while describing a method for conquering the mind]: “[He whose] self is constantly immersed in detachment; [who is] free from effort and whose supreme bliss has manifested, does not fix his mind on any place. A mind that is disregarded (upekṣita) by the self, never governs the sense organs and so, even the sense organs do not act with respect to their own respective objects. When the self does not impel the mind and the mind does not impel the sense organs, then [the mind] which falls away from both, naturally attains dissolution”.
