Caṇḍeśapratiṣṭhā (चण्डेशप्रतिष्ठा) refers to a certain ceremony performed by Ādiśaiva priests (Ācāryas), as defined in the Śaivāgamas.—The Ācāryas were honoured with dakṣiṇā on the occasion of [various] ritual ceremonies. Besides that, they received a share of the naivedya and nirmālya each day. [...] During caṇḍeśapratiṣṭhā, the Ācārya should be honoured with new clothes, gold ring and the appropriate dakṣinā along with the Mūrtipā and others. The Ācārya dakṣiṇā can be 5 niṣka (adhama), 10 niṣka (madhyama) or 15 niṣka (uttama).
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.
