In Hinduism

Pancaratra (worship of Nārāyaṇa)

Source: Shodhganga: Kasyapa Samhita—Text on Visha Chikitsa (p)

Ullasat (उल्लसत्) refers to “rejoicing” (in four chants of svāhā), and is mentioned in the meditation on Garuḍa in the Pṛthvīmaṇḍala, according to the second chapter of the Kāśyapa Saṃhitā: an ancient Sanskrit text from the Pāñcarātra tradition dealing with both Tantra and Viṣacikitsā (Toxicology).—The Kāśyapasaṃhitā describes the different forms of Garuḍa in the five bhūta-maṇḍalas on which the aspirant has to meditate upon to cure the snake-bite victim from the poison which could have killed him. In the Bhūmaṇḍala (or Pṛthvīmaṇḍala), Garuḍa who resembles the golden mountain, must be meditated upon as one rejoicing (ullasat) in four chants of svāhā and innumerable serpents with the cakra or discus, clad in white, sacred thread with massive shoulders touching the heights of the sky and a huge body, ever engaged in stalling poison, demoniac elements and so on.
