Rakṣābandhana (रक्षाबन्धन) 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. [...] After tying of the protective rakṣābandhana at the beginning of many rituals, the Yajamāna is asked to honour the Ācārya, Daivajña, Purohita and all other Brāhmaṇas.
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.
