Drohin (द्रोहिन्) refers to “one who has transgressed (a particular pledge)”, 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, “Those who are overcome with greed and the like do what is forbidden. The goddesses take away from him whatever they have uttered before. Then the goddesses take away from the one who has transgressed (drohin) Śiva’s pledge (whatever) other accomplishment (he may have achieved). The Siddhas of the Śrīsamaya and the rest, who are in the maṇḍala have been mentioned in due order”.
