By Swami Harshananda

Sometimes transliterated as: Abadhita, AbAdhita, Abaadhita

Abādhita is literally translated as ‘not contradicted’.

The word bādha and its derivatives are often used as technical terms, in the sense of objection or contradiction. Hence ‘abādhita’ means that which is not contradicted, ‘a’ being the negative quotient. In truth or reality, one which is abādhita can never be contradicted. So what is contradicted can never be considered true or real in the ultimate sense.
