Caryapada (चर्यपद) or carya refers to the first division of the āgamas.—The four classes of devotees (bhakta) or the states of spiritual life somewhat correspond to the four divisions of the Āgamas and the four modes of sādhana, spiritual practice, they entail. Thus, sālokya corresponds to carya, ritual and moral conduct, sāmīpya to kriyā, architectural and iconographic making, sārūpya to yoga, meditation, and sāyūjya ta jñāna, theology and gnosis.Source: Shodhganga: Iconographical representations of Śiva
Caryāpāda (चर्यापाद) refers to one of the four divisions of the Śaivāgamas, one of the three classes of āgamas (traditionally communicated wisdom).—The caryāpāda deals with the conventions, rules and regulations to be followed by the followers of the Śaiva school, and also the different stages that could be attained by regular practice.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.
