Deravasi, Murtipujak, Mūrtipūjaka


Murtipujaka means 'image-worshipping,' and includes both Shvetambaras and Digambaras, so we have Shvetambara Murtipujakas and Digambara Murtipujakas. Murtipujakas are also known as Deravasis or Mandirmargi, i.e. temple attendee. They do not use the muhapatti, a piece of cloth over the mouth, during prayers.
