Source: archive.org: Catalogue of Pancaratra Agama Texts

Sāṃkarya (सांकर्य) refers to “mixture (of a particular mantra with the wrong icon)”, as discussed in the thirteenth chapter of the Parāśarasaṃhitā: a Pañcarātra work of some 2000 verses dealing withe the composition and applications of Mantras, the characteristics of devotees (prapanna) and initiation.—Accordingly, Bhagavān declares He will now describe the mantras of the 24 mūrti-aspects of the Lord—Keśava, et. al.— their nyāsas, etc., inasmuch as these will be useful in pratiṣṭhā. A warning is given to Arcakas not to allow mixture [sāṃkarya] of a particular mantra with the wrong icon during worship; if such things are done it is as sinful as if one were to offer meat and alcohol to the deity! (1-12).
