Haviṣkṛt (हविष्कृत्) refers to an “invocation when the havis is made”, as mentioned in the Āpastamba-yajña-paribhāṣā-sūtras.—“repetition takes place in the case of the Haviṣkṛt, Adhrigu, Puronuvākyā, and Manotā hymns, (because they have to be used) at different times”. Commentary: “haviṣkṛt-adhrigu-puronuvākyā-manotam” is to be taken as a Dvandva compound. [...] The Haviṣkṛt hymn is an invocation when the havis is made. [...] These hymns are to be repeated, if the act which they accompany has to be repeated after a certain interval.
