Wiman's theorem says that an entire holomorphic function of order less than 1/2 has a minimum modulus converging to along a sequence. Arima's theorem is a refinement of Wiman's theorem. Here we generalize both results to quasiregular mappings in the manifold setup. The so called fundamental frequency has an important role in this study.
