About the Siddhas
The ancient Siddhas, hailing from South India (present-day state of Tamil Nadu), were typically scientists, healers, alchemists, and sages all in one. They developed a vast knowledge system (the Siddha system) with various branches of knowledge such as Siddha Medicine, science of Varma (vital point therapy), Siddha Alchemy, Siddha Yoga and Siddha Tantra.
The traditional Tamil Siddha system has existed since time immemorial. It is one of the oldest systems to describe health as a holistic perfected state of the physical, psychological, social and spiritual components of a human being.
Although there are many Siddhas in the Siddha Tradition, a group comprising of 18 ancient Siddhas are considered significant and are called the “18 Primal Siddhas”. One of the 18 primal Siddhas is the great Siddha Agasthiyar, who is the Father of Siddha medicine, Tamil literature and grammar.
