- Worshipping with rituals.
- It is the fifth of the nine modes of bhakti.
Usually archanam involves offerings of flowers or leaves during a puja or worship ceremony. While making the offerings we repeat the names of the object of worship such as a deity or guru.
It is also called arcana (arcana) in its root form neuter, or arcana (arcanA) in the feminine.
