1) Visṛjya (विसृज्य) refers to “those who avoid attachment”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.49 (“The delusion of Brahmā”).—Accordingly, as the Gods eulogised Śiva: “[...] You are Truth, Brahman and Consciousness. You are imperishable, from whom have originated the beginning, the end and the middle of visible worlds, even I too. These visible things are not the true ones. The sages, desirous of liberation, worship and meditate upon your lotus feet. They are steady in their resolve. They avoid attachment (visṛjya) on either side. [...]”.

2) Visṛjya (विसृज्य) refers to “dismissing” (a particular philosophy), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.9 (“Boasting of Tāraka”).—Accordingly, as Tāraka-Asura said to the Gods: “[...] Again in his ninth incarnation he slighted the Vedic path and contrary to its principles, preached and established the atheistic philosophy called Buddhism. How can he be considered an excellent, virtuous man, how can he be victorious in battle who has committed sin without caring for (visṛjya) Vedic cult? [...]”.
