In Hinduism

Pancaratra (worship of Nārāyaṇa)

Source: eScholarship: Chapters 1-14 of the Hayasirsa Pancaratra

Vyāpanna (व्यापन्न) refers to “one who is injured”, representing an undesirable characteristic of an Ācārya, according to the 9th-century Hayaśīrṣa-pañcarātra Ādikāṇḍa chapter 3.—The Lord said:—“I will tell you about the Sthāpakas endowed with perverse qualities. He should not construct a temple with those who are avoided in this Tantra. [...] He should not be very dark, without compassion, a sinner, nor emaciated, short or lazy, he should not be injured (vyāpanna), uncultured, agitated and not depressed. [...] A god enshrined by any of these named above (viz., vyāpanna), is in no manner a giver of fruit. If a building for Viṣṇu is made anywhere by these excluded types (viz., vyāpanna) then that temple will not give rise to enjoyment and liberation and will yield no reward, of this there is no doubt”.
