Charya, Kriya, Yoga and Jnana are the four systems in Siva Raja Yoga. Various methods for the purification of the body and internal organs, nerve centers, prana and mind are involved in Charya. Through various Kriyas, Prayanamas, Mudras and Bandhas, the powers-Kundilini Sakthi-of various nerve center (Athara chakras), which otherwise remain dormant are activated and they become vibrant and radiates .For example Anal pooja kriya means activating the fire or agni within and with out which is the embodiment of Brahmaas mentioned in our Vedas and Upanishads. The deep meditation techniques to realize the full potential of the central nervous system including the brain and to unite the positive Nadha (Siva )and negative Jyothis (Shakthi) powers in every paramanu (atom)within and without are considered as the main aspects of Siva Raja Yoga .Jnana is the ultimate aim of Yoga.
Siva Raja Yoga also makes use of Bhakthi (devotion) and Mantra, Thantra and Yantra principles. The yogic knowledge if clearly understood and practiced would remove all conflicts and religious contradictions among people and religious fundamentalism.
The GreatGuru,Thycaud Ayya Swamikal, propagated the principles of Advaitha among his disciples and fought against untouchability. This was before Mahatma Gandhi Ayya had disciples from all upper and lower castes and religions. As early as 1830 Ayya used to feed people all castes and religions at his house (panthibhojanam) during festive occasions like Thaippoyam. When people from upper caste questioned and ridiculed him, calling pandipparayan he used to say-intha ulakithile ore oru matham, ore oru jathy and ore oru kadavul than(one caste, one religion and one god). His disciple Sri Narayana Guru translated this doctrine to Malayalam-Oru jathy,oru matham,oru daivam manushanu
