Kakkhaṭa (कक्खट) refers to “one who is harsh”, representing an undesirable characteristic of an Ācārya, according to the 9th-century Hayaśīrṣa-pañcarātra Ādikāṇḍa chapter 3.—The Lord said:—“I will tell you about the Sthāpakas endowed with perverse qualities. He should not construct a temple with those who are avoided in this Tantra. [...] He should not be one who is lacking means or location, nor harsh (kakkhaṭa) or focused on meanness, nor pitiless or wanting in power, nor be one who is completely lacking skills. [...] A god enshrined by any of these named above (viz., kakkhaṭa), is in no manner a giver of fruit. If a building for Viṣṇu is made anywhere by these excluded types (viz., kakkhaṭa) then that temple will not give rise to enjoyment and liberation and will yield no reward, of this there is no doubt”.
Pancaratra (पाञ्चरात्र, pāñcarātra) represents a tradition of Hinduism where Narayana is revered and worshipped. Closeley related to Vaishnavism, the Pancaratra literature includes various Agamas and tantras incorporating many Vaishnava philosophies.
