Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Kriyāpada (क्रियापद) or kriyā refers to the second 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: McGill: The architectural theory of the Mānasāra (shaivism)
