Arcanīya (अर्चनीय) refers to “one who is worthy of the worship” and is used to describe Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.13 (“Śiva-Pārvatī dialogue”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī said to Śiva: “[...] O lord, please ponder over who you are and who this subtle Prakṛti is. Without Prakṛti how can the great lord of the phallic form exist? You are worthy of the worship [i.e., arcanīya], respect and meditation of all living beings for ever, thanks to Prakṛti. Thinking of this in your heart, please reply”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
