Saṃprokṣaṇa (संप्रोक्षण) refers to a type of “temple consecration” as described in the Śaivāgamas.—One of the important duties of the administration is to conduct the consecration of the temple frequently or as prescribed since the sanctity of the temple also depends on regular reconsecration. Saṃprokṣaṇa is said to annul all types of doṣas and is in fact one of the prāyāścittas prescribed for many types of errors or shortfalls in the temple. The Saṃprokṣaṇa-vidhi of Kāmikāgama describes several types of consecration—āvarta, anāvarta, punarāvarta, āntaritaka, prokṣaṇa. [...] If yātrāhoma is performed, the consecration is called āvartapratiṣṭhā. Else it is known as saṃprokṣaṇa.
