In Hinduism

Pancaratra (worship of Nārāyaṇa)

Source: eScholarship: Chapters 1-14 of the Hayasirsa Pancaratra

1) Kutsita (कुत्सित) or Kutsitamūrti refers to “one who is of a despicable form”, 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 with whom one constructs a temple should not be a Śaiva, or a Saura, nor a Naiṣṭhika, nor a naked one, nor born of mixed marriage, nor unclean, old, or one who is of a despicable form (kutsita-mūrti) or marked by great sin. [...] A god enshrined by any of these named above (viz., kutsita), is in no manner a giver of fruit. If a building for Viṣṇu is made anywhere by these excluded types (viz., kutsita) then that temple will not give rise to enjoyment and liberation and will yield no reward, of this there is no doubt”.

2) Kutsita (कुत्सित) or Kutsitavrata refers to “one who is focused on meanness”, representing another undesirable characteristic of an Ācārya.—“[...] He should not be one who is lacking means or location, nor harsh or focused on meanness (kutsita-vrata), nor pitiless or wanting in power, nor be one who is completely lacking skills. [...]”.
