Pūrṇāhuti (पूर्णाहुति) refers to a certain ceremony performed by Ādiśaiva priests (Ācāryas), as defined in the Śaivāgamas.—The Ācāryas were honoured with dakṣiṇā on the occasion of [various] ritual ceremonies. Besides that, they received a share of the naivedya and nirmālya each day. [...] The Śivabhaktapratiṣṭhāvidhi also mentions that the Ācārya, Mūrtidhāraka, Anujāpi, Adhyetṛ, Daivajña and Śilpī should all be honoured and made happy with clothes, gold and dakṣiṇā before they proceed to the pūrṇāhuti.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.
