sadhana

Evocation, viz. the envisaging and calling forth of a divinity normally by means of repetitive recitation (japa) of the appropriate formula (mantra) and by meditation (dhyna) upon his formal representation.
Thus a written sadhana of a divinity usually provides a full description of his form and attributes together with his special formula.
