Vimānasthāpana (विमानस्थापन) 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 Vimānasthāpana and Maṇḍapasthāpana, the Āgama recommends that the Guru along with the Mūrtipa be honoured with new clothes and appropriate dakṣiṇā starting from 10 niṣka in the case of vimānasthāpana. In the chapter on Parivāralakṣaṇa, the āgama specifies dakṣiṇā between one and ten niṣka for all ritual officiants starting from the Guru.
