pūjārtha पूजार्थ

Definition: lit for the sake of paying respect. The word is used by commentators in connection with references to ancient grammarians by Panini in his sutras, where the commentators usually say that the sutras citing the views of ancient grammarians imply merely an option, the name being quoted merely to show respect to the grammarian; cf. अापिशलिग्रहणं पूजार्थम् S.K. on P.VI.1.92.
