Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram

Abhakta (अभक्त) refers to “one who is not devoted”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, while describing the signs of one who is not a Siddha: “He is excessively tall, bald, deformed, short, dwarfish, his nose is ugly or he has black teeth and is wrathful . Some of his limbs are missing and is deceitful, cripple and deformed, foolish, inauspicious, envious, deluded, badly behaved, and violent; without any teacher, he is devoid of the rites, he maligns the Krama without cause, he is not devoted to the Siddhas [i.e., abhaktasiddhavarge abhaktaśca], he (always) suffers and is without wisdom. He is (always) ill and one should know that he is (always) attached (to worldly objects) and has no scripture. He has no energy and is dull and lazy. Ugly, he lives by cheating and, cruel, he is deluded, and devoid of (any) sense of reality. Such is the characteristic of one who is not accomplished (asiddha) in a past life”.

Abhakta (अभक्त):—I. [tatpurusha compound] m. f. n.

(-ktaḥ-ktā-ktam) 1) Not worshipping, undevout; e. g. in the Ṛgv.: bhaktamabhaktamavo vyanto ajarā agnayo vyanto ajarāḥ; or in the Rudrayāmalatantra: abhaktebhyopi putrebhyo datvā narakamāpnuyāt.

2) Detached, not connected with; said by the commentators on Pāṇini of a grammatical element which stands part, as it were, of the other elements of the word, and therefore prevents the application of rules which would have to take place, if it were bhakta, i. e. if it were essentially connected with the other elements of the word; e. g. the Kāśikā on suṭ Vi. 1. 136.: pūṃrva dhāturupasargeṇa yujyata iti tatra dhātūpasargayoḥ kāryamantaraṅgamiti pūrvaṃ suṭkriyate . paścādaḍabhyāsau . abhaktaśca suḍityuktam; or the same on suṭ Vi. 1. 135.: kātpūrvagrahaṇaṃ suṭobhaktatvajñāpanārtham; but Kātyāyana differs in opinion on this point, for he says: abhakte svare doṣaḥ ‘if suṭ were extraneous there would be a flaw in the application of Pāṇini’s rule of accentuation Viii. 1. 28.’; or the latter Vārtt. applied to āgama tuk Vi. 1. 71., or to āgama muk Vii. 2. 82. (Patanjali, however, refutes Kātyāyana in this view.)—An abhakta element is in these comm. therefore opposed as well to a grammatical element which is pūrvānta i. e. one added after what precedes, as to an element parādi i. e. one which is placed before what follows. As it is important to know, in the application of Pāṇini's rules, whether an element is abhakta or not, it will be expedient to convey the bearing of this term from the following explanation of Patanj. on a Vārtt. to 1. 1. 47.: kiṃ punarayaṃ pūrvāntaḥ . āhosvitparādiḥ . āhosvidabhaktaḥ . kathaṃ vāyaṃ pūrvāntaḥ syātkathaṃ vā parādiḥ kathaṃ vābhaktaḥ . yadyanta iti vartate tataḥ pūrvāntaḥ . athādiriti vartate tataḥ parādiḥ . athobhayaṃ nivṛttaṃ tatobhaktaḥ . kaścātra viśeṣaḥ . abhakte dīrghanalopasvaraṇatvānusvāraśībhāvāḥ . yadyabhakto dīrghatvaṃ na prāpnoti . kuṇḍāni vanāni (cf. Vii. 1. 72.) . nopadhāyāḥ (Vi. 4. 7.) . sarvanāmasthāne cāsaṃbuddhāviti (Vi. 4. 8.) dīrghatvaṃ na prāpnoti .. dīrgha .. nalopa . nalopaśca na sidhyati . agne trī te vājinā trī ṣadhasthā tā tā (cf.

(i. e. the āgama num is not abhakta, for otherwise the quoted rules could not be applied; comp. also the term vahiraṅga).
