Pūjayitṛ (पूजयितृ) refers to “one who is a worshipper”, according to the Kularatnoddyota verse 2.29-33.—Accordingly, “[...] Such (also) is this Krama lineage that has come down through the sequence of the series (of teachers). O mistress of Kula, it is worshipped by the troupes of Siddhas and by the Yoginīs. This is the reality of my life, O dear one, it is my wealth. I am myself its creator and I am (its) worshipper (pūjayitṛ). This, O goddess, mistress of Kula, is the ultimate Paścima Śrīkrama. Hard to acquire, it is worshipped with this along with the associated sequences (of mantras). It should be worshipped, O fair one, by Siddhas with unlimited energy”.
