According to Shri Narayan Guru, the purpose of the Sivagiri Pilgrimage should be the creation of comprehensive knowledge among people and the pilgrimage must help in their overall development and prosperity.

Sivagiri Pilgrimage, therefore, focuses on eight subjects- cleanliness, education, handicrafts, piety, trade and commerce, science and technology, agriculture and organized endeavour. 

Sivagiri Pilgrimage had started in 1933 with a handful of devotees, however, now it has become one of the major events in South India. Every year, lakhs of devotees from all around the world, irrespective of religion, caste, creed, and language visit Sivagiri in Kerala to participate in the pilgrimage.

Shri Guru Narayan had envisioned a place to teach the principles of all religions with equal respect. Brahma Vidyalaya of Sivagiri was established to realise this vision. 

Brahma Vidyalaya offers a course of 7-years on Indian Philosophy which includes the works of Shri Narayan Guru and scriptures of all the significant religions of the world.
