The Sahasra Nama archana for Swayamvara Parvathi by pronouncing her 1008 sacred names follows it. For the purpose of archana Lord Siva and Parvathy are portrayed as Udvaganathar and Kokilambal of Thirumanancheri where the earthly marriage of Shiva and Parvathi took place. During the archana a vedic schollar will use ‘swarna kamalam’ (silver lotus flower dipped in gold) for the archana. Other chosen purohits will use flowers and all the participants will use kumkumam to perform archana. At the end of the archana the kumkumam used by the devotees is collected and submitted at the feet of the deity seeking her blessings.
