The title of this book, Arcana-dipika, means "the lamp that illuminates arcana". The term arcana signifies honour or worship. As one of the nine processes of devotional service, it refers to worshipping the deity form of the Supreme Lord. Arcana-dipika teaches us how this service is performed and how to please the Supreme Lord through this process of worship. By the mercy of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu; the Six Gosvamis and other contemporary followers of Sriman Mahaprabhu; and more recently Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Svami Maharaja the process of deity worship, which is the authentic method of approaching Sri Bhagavan, has been successfully introduced to the entire world.
