Bhautika (T. 'byung 'gyur) refers to material objects or phenomena arisen from the elements.[1]

The Rangjung Yeshe Wiki, defining the Tibetan term 'byung 'gyur, emphasizes material objects arisen from elements. Also: secondary qualities of the elements, and what is to arise from the elements.[1]

Buswell defines the Sanskrit term bhautika as a secondary formation from bhūta ("element"). Hence as "secondary element."[2]
