Prapūjita (प्रपूजित) refers to “worshipping (a deity)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.18 (“Gaṇeśa crowned as the chief of Gaṇas”).—Accordingly, after Śiva, Viṣṇu and Brahmā spoke to the Gods: “After saying this we worshipped him. Śiva worshipped Gaṇeśa with various articles of worship. Viṣṇu worshipped (prapūjita) him afterwards. I, Brahmā, and Pārvatī too worshipped him. He was then worshipped by all the gods and Gaṇas with great joy. In order to gratify Pārvatī, Gaṇeśa was proclaimed as the presiding officer by all, Brahmā, Viṣṇu, Śiva and others. Again, with a joyful mind, several boons were granted by Pārvatī to him, always favourable to all in the world”.
