Having this thought, he who became a monk carefully and vigorously practiced in solitude, and soon he produced (utpādita) the five supernormal knowledges’”.

Utpādita (उत्पादित) refers to “(being) produced”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “That [cosmos] is not at all produced [com.utpādita] by anyone, not at all sustained by anyone, so also not destroyed by anyone. Nevertheless, that exists by itself without support in the atmosphere. That very same one, which is without a beginning and end, is accomplished by itself and imperishable, without a Supreme Being and excessively filled with objects beginning with the self”.
