    Kudhambai siddhar

    "Kudhambai" is a type of ornament wear by girls. Since, this siddhar wear this ornament in his childhood and on seeing him with that makes his mother feel very happy, his original name vanished and his name itself turned as "kudhambai" sidhar. Also, in other school, it is said that, in all his verses he ends with the word "kudhmabaai" (meaning a person wearing Kudhambai) and hence the name stands. But his original name is certainly not that which siddhar people dont care at all also. It has been said that this siddhar has lived in the regions of Mayiladuthurai-kumbakonam. It has been said that he is the disciple of Alukani siddhar, who is the disciple of famous "IDAIKADAR". Kudhambai siddhar attained his samadhi in Mayiladuthurai.

    In the successive posts we will start sharing his songs...

    Dear NRR

    I think the siddhars themselves have to provide us some "thelivurai, padavurai, pozhipurai" etc., as you said whenever you read the verses, you will get different meanings from them. I think we ourself has to eat them and then chew and masticate them to find the originality with the grace of siddhars. Apart from them, the meanings provide by anyone else will be like a person crossing a small channel and saying that he has measured the whole ocean with its length and breadth...

    1. The real siddhar people never needs any sort of advertisement. Infact they lead a life isolated from normal humanbeings. In this context, the kudhambai siddhar is referring, when the true siddha has got the knowledge of Parabrahma, then what will be the use of an certificate provided by normal humans??? He has surrendered and joined with the supreme god, then a normal advertisement is of nouse to him.

    2. When the siddhar has identified the god himself, what will be the use of KARPAS to him. "Karpas" are tablets provided by siddha to the medical world. The famous "Kayakarpa" is known to everybody. Dont confuse the karpa with "Karpa-Yuga-age of earth". Usually these karpa tablets are used to keep the body young without any disease. It was discovered by siddhar people only. But for whom??? It is certaainly not for them. Thats what siddhar is telling. The use of "karpa kulikas" is of noway to help a true siddha.

    3. The real siddhar who has seen the god within himself and also always residing in that samadhi state itself, does not need any things to fulfill. He can do whatever he thinks. But he has crossed all the desires and is beyond the limits of desires. Siddhar here clearly states that there is even no use of getting desire when already the person is residing in "PARAMANANDA".

    4. The siddhar who finds the way which curtail all sorts of sins, does not have any mental disturbances. He has conquered his mind already. And he is going in the path of god, he has even seen god within himself and also seeing the same in other beings also. Hence, his mind never gets worried at any circumstances as that always reside in "PARAMANANDA"

    Dear Sri Durgadasan,

    I enjoyed your posts on this topic.

    I have deleted my tamil font murasu anjal since it has affected
    the speed of my PC. Hence I am posting in english. Forgive me.

    Azhugani Siddhar :

    Like these there are many poems by various siddhars whose
    meaning is very difficult to grasp. Thats why I am looking for
    the correct meaning of these from scholors like you. Are there
    any books ? Can u kindly help ? Thanks.

    Namassadhasae.

    Some information about the 18 siddhars and specially on pambatti sidhdhar, some connected information about these siddhars are given below. Hope this could be of interest to some of the forum members pls.

    //
    [IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/sunda/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG]About Siddhar's (Siddha's)
    Who is a siddha ? A siddha is one who has attained siddhi, i.e. "power, prowess, strength, ability", then
    a special kind of psychic and supernatural, miraculous, occult power. There are eight kinds of super
    natural powers called as "Ashtama Siddhis":
    1. Anima (shrinking) -- Power of becoming the size of an atom and entering the smallest
    beings.
    2. Mahima (illimitability) -- Power of becoming mighty and co-extensive with the universe. The
    power of increasing one's size without limit.
    3. Lagima (lightness) -- Capacity to be quite light though big in size.
    4. Garima (weight) -- Capacity to weigh heavy, though seemingly small size.
    5. Prapthi (fulfillment of desires) -- Capacity to enter all the worlds from Brahma Loga to the
    neither world. It is the power of attaining everything desired.
    6. Prakasysm (irresistible will) -- Power of disembodying and entering into other bodies
    (metempsychosis) and going to heaven and enjoying what everyone aspires for, simply from
    where he stays.
    7. Isithavam (supremacy) -- Have the creative power of God and control over the Sun, the
    moon and the elements and
    8. Vasithavam (dominion over the elements) -- Power of control over King and Gods. The
    power of changing the course of nature and assuming any form.
    According to the book "Valmiki Suthira Gyanam" authored by Siddhar Valmiki, "By purifying the mind
    and attaining perfection one becomes a siddha (Tamil Chittan); He is indeed fit to be called SIVA".
    A classical definition of siddhas is given by Siddhar Thirumoolar: "Those who live in yoga and see the
    divine light and power through yoga are the siddhars (Tamil Chittar)".
    According to Kamil Zvelebil, there are some features which are typical for all or almost all siddhars as
    a body of thinkers.
     First, in sharp opposition to the bhakti tradition, they refuse to allow themselves be carried
    away by idol worship in particular temples.
     Second, in contrast to bhakti which emphasizes passionate devotion to God, the siddhar
    emphasize knowledge, yoga practice, and character, moral behavior, right conduct. Anger, lust
    and egoism are the worst sins.
     Third, almost all siddhar's raise a protest against caste and casteism.
    The whole atmosphere of siddha thinking is empirical and experimental. Their writings are not in the
    nature of clear cut formalized statements of any well defined doctrine. Hence, it is difficult to extricate a
    philosophical system out of their writings, at least at the present state of our knowledge of their works.
    However, it is possible to point out a few essential features, and one day, when their writings are better
    known, it should be possible to state their philosophy more explicitly.
    This web site is devoted to publishing the works of siddhars for the internet community. Most of the
    works are available only in Tamil and it is possible that the author of document interprets things in his
    own way while translating the original text. An attempt is made to present information about siddhars
    here.

    A Crisp Note on Sri Pambatti Siddhar
    The most popular and well known of the siddhar’s is "Pambatti Siddhar" (the snake character) who
    may be taken to be a true representation of his tribe. He takes the snake for a symbol to represent the
    human Soul and uses the expression : "AODU PAMBE" (De thou, Dance Snake) as a refrain at the
    end of each stanza of his poem. The poem of this siddhar is in fewer than six hundred lines and deals
    with philosophic and spiritual matters in the authentic siddhar pattern with great passion. He sings Lord
    Siva as the Supreme Power of the Universe. There is a poem on his Guru, Who is credited with super
    natural powers. He then boasts of the similar powers of his tribe in a mood of fantastic self-adulation,
    where his imagination runs riot. "We can make men women", he says and adds, "We can destroy" this
    great universe. He asserts that they have power equal to that of God and can control the elements. He
    is there, merely expatiating on the Ashtama Siddhis, which is believed to confer eight kinds of devises
    and super natural powers on those who have achieved it. They are
    1. Anima -- Power of becoming the size of an atom and entering
    the smallest beings.
    2. Mahima -- Power of becoming mighty and co-extensive with
    the universe.
    3. Lagima -- Capacity to be quite light though big in size.
    4. Garima -- Capacity to weigh heavy, though seemingly small
    size.
    5. Prapthi -- Capacity to enter all the worlds from Brahma Loga
    to the neither world.
    6. Prakasysm -- Power of disembodying and entering into other
    bodies (metempsychosis) and going to heaven and enjoying
    what everyone aspires for, simply from where he stays.
    7. Isithavam -- Have the creative power of God and control over
    the Sun, the moon and the elements and
    8. Vasithavam -- Power of control over King and Gods.
    Whether any man ever had or can have these powers is an open question.
    He then bursts out that they, like Prahima can create new worlds, make him his servants and live in a
    status of equality with Lord Siva and make Him play with them. Then there is usual tired against this
    life and its short lived sensual pleasure. The value of reminciation and sacation is also dealt with. He
    ridicules ideal worship and the Vedas. Agomas and other Scriptures. The cast differences are
    denounced by him. He has also several stanzas on mystic knowledge of Yoga.
    As a poet, he is not contemptible (deserving to be treated with contempt). He has a facility of
    expression and an imaginative flavour in thought. He holds that those who have no feeling of love in
    their hearts can never attain salvation. His God vision is pictured in a fine stanza. This poet uses
    entirely the common speech of the people and has produced powerful effect.
    Each one of the stanzas of his work ends in the world "Aodu Pambe". Probably that may be the cause
    of his name. He seems to belong to Maruthamalai in Kongunadu. It is given in the work above that he
    got instructions from Sattamuni. As per the lines "Pathir-ar-Sankarankoil Pambatti" found in the old
    stanza, which is given as source so far, his place of Samadhi has to be taken as Sankarankoil is
    Tirunelveli District of Tamil Nadu (India).
    Scripts taken from:
    Chapter Eighteen (Pages 364 & 365) of book entitled "Eighteen Siddhars in History of Siddha
    Medicine" by Mr. N. Kandasamy Pillai, Former Member, Siddha Science Development Committee and
    Published by the Government of Tamil Nadu in 1979.
    A Precise History of Sri Pambatti Siddhar Samadhi at
    Sankarankovil
    The nobility and sublimity of the Cobra, which symbolically represents the power of Kundalini in human
    beings, is hailed with mystical flavor in more than a hundred verses by Sri Pambatti siddhar, each
    ending with the refrain 'Dance Thou Cobra!'.
    He is the last among the noted 18 siddhars. He belongs to the Kozhayi family. The Himalayas are their
    ancestral land. Essentially the Kozhayi's were cowherds and sheep herds and dependent on the
    products of cows and sheep. Slowly they moved out of their place and in due course came to South
    India . Some say that Sri Pambatti Siddhar was born at Thirukkokarnam, near Pudukkottai and some
    others in the Pandya Kingdom . Mrigasirisham was his birth star in the Tamil month of Karthigai
    (November-December). He was considered a manifestation of Lord Siva. On being given spiritual
    initiation by his Guru Sattamuni, as the disciple changed the five elements into a five-headed cobra, he
    came to be known as "Pambatti siddhar". There are a few who say that he got this name because he
    lent symbolically in his verses the image of a cobra to the Kundalini power.
    Sri Pambatti siddhar attained the eight supernatural powers called 'Ashtamasiddhi' after performing
    penance for a very long time in a cave on Marudamalai, near Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu. Also he lived
    in places like Mahalingamalai in Vathiraayiruppu, Kollimalai, Madurai , Puliyur and Bhavani.
    Sri Sivaprabhakara Siddhayogi Paramahamsar was the worthy disciple of this great siddhar. The
    former was born in a Namboodiri family of Kaladi, Kerala. As the Guru and his follower remained
    inseparable, they did atonement for 45 years on the Himalayas and came to Sankarankoil. Sri
    Pambatti Siddhar established the statue of Goddess Gomathi Amman there. Later, at the south-west
    corner, about a furlong behind the temple, amidst punnai trees (now door number 15, Puliyankudi
    Road). Sri Pambatti Siddhar got established in the state of Nirvikalpa Samadhi (also known as Jeeva
    Samadhi) at the sacred hands of his disciple.
    Some books mention that Sri Pambatti siddhar attained samadhi at Virudhachalam and some at
    Thirukkadaiyur. However, their claims have no established proof. It may be assumed that Sri Pambatti
    siddhar would have lived in those places and in order to reveal that the disciple could himself assume
    the frame of his master, might have got established in samadhi in these two places in the guise of Sri
    Pambatti Siddhar. This might have been possible for him because Sri Prabhakarar got into the bodies
    of 15 persons at different times by the unique process called 'Metempsychosis' (Transmigration)
    and proved himself to be the noble student of his aspired preceptor.
    It can be authentically proved that Sri Pambatti siddhar got samadhi only at Sankarankoil. Some such
    proofs are cited below:
    1) In his book entitled "History of Siddha Medicine" written in English by Mr. N. Kannuppillai and
    published by the Government of Tamil Nadu in 1979, under the chapter "Eighteen Siddhars", the
    author has written on pages 364-366 about Pambatti siddhar and clearly mentioned that he attained
    samadhi at Sankarankoil.
    2) In the hoary palm leaves of Pulithevar entitled " Nerkattum Seval " in the form of a song there are
    references to the places where the 18 siddhar's had attained samadhi and in it is mentioned that Sri
    Pambatti siddhar's place of samadhi is at Sankarankoil.
    3) Dr. Yogi S. A. A. Ramiah in his book " A Collection of the Verses of the Eighteen Siddhars for Daily
    Recitation n" (in Tamil) too makes a similar mention when he records that Sri. Pambatti siddhar in
    order to attain Svarupa samadhi in Sankarankoil kindled his cobra power of Kundalini.
    4) The Gayatri Mantra of Sri Pambatti siddhar is :
    " Om Sankaranaalaya Pathivaazh Sittharaaya
    Vechitra Rupaaya Pambatti Sittharaaya Namaha" .
    This also makes an identical proclamation.
    Thus, beyond doubt, it is established that Sri Pambatti Siddhar's Jeeva Samadhi is only at
    Sankarankoil and not anywhere else.
    The sole disciple of Sri Pambatti Siddhar was Brahmananda Sri Sivaprabhakara Siddhayogi
    Paramahamsar and that of the latter is Brahmasri Siddharaja Swamiji, who has, at the behest of his
    Guru, had undertaken the great task of constructing a sacred samadhi Temple for his Guru's Guru.
    Brahmasri Siddharaja Swamiji had taken up some other truly useful missions to the society. His plan
    was to construct separate buildings for siddha research centre and for mass feeding, to be housed
    within the proposed building complex of the siddhar samadhi.
    Just in front of the siddhar samadhi lies a big water tank called "Govinda Peri", meant for the annual
    float festival of the temple. It was in ruins and Brahmasri Siddharaja Swamiji had desilted the tank and
    renovated its southern and western walls at a cost of about Rs.80,000 and let the people of the area of
    the town to bathe comfortably in it. Also he had renovated the "Govinda Peri Mutt" and established a
    "Bhakthi Peeth". He had finished construction of two temples - one dedicated to Lord Ganesh and the
    other to Lord Balamurugan - and they are meant for public worship.
    Brahmasri Siddharaja Swamigal had some more generous plans : to build a charity marriage hall, a
    serene hall for meditation and a school for the chanting of hymns of the Vedas. The present small
    sanctum santorium of Sri Pambatti siddhar (presently a thatched shed structure only) is to be built
    extensively. A proverb says "only one Caste and one Lord". True to that statement, Brahmasri
    Siddharaja Swamiji did everything without any discrimination of caste, creed and religion. So far many
    lakhs of rupees have been spent. The aforesaid construction work was estimated to have costed
    nearly 40 lakh Indian Rupees (INR). Of course, the public voluntarily came forward and donated
    liberally for this inimitable spiritual cause.
    Every sincere devotee is called upon to pay his / her mite by sending an amount equal to at least a
    day's salary to the Samadhi Peedam (Contact Information of Samadhi Peedam) and become a part of
    this unique social service.
    Note: The names of those who donate Rs.2,000 or more shall be engraved on the walls of the temple.
    The Eminence of Sri Pambatti Siddhar's Samadhi
    Some special features of Sri Pambati Siddhar's Samadhi are presented here:
    1) It is a historically recorded evidence that in order to cure Pulithevar, a daring patriot, of his
    excruciating stomach pain the then pontiff of Thiruvaduthurai used the ant-hill soil on the Samadhi of
    Sri Pambatti Siddhar. It readily reveals the curative efficacy of the Samadhi soil. Daily devotes who
    throng the shrine take the soil to their homes as 'Prasadam'. The Tulsi tank water in the temple cures
    many diseases and protects devotees from many diseases.
    2) There is a grill-structure with 18 lamps, just behind the Siddhar's shrine. The Pranava Mantra "OM"
    is at its centre. There is a "Trident" at the top of the lamps to refer to the Three Lords, born out of the
    Pranava Mantra. Each lamp encompassing "OM" stands for a Siddhar.
    The prayers of those devotees who keep a small cloth packet containing Sesame seeds in each of
    these cup like lamps, fill with gingelly oil, light them and pray sincerely are heard and fulfilled at once.
    This is what devotees who gather at the shrine in multitudes often assert. Brahmasri Siddharaja
    Swamiji himself once directed some of his devotees to observe this rite in order to rid them of the
    adverse effects of Mars in the 7th house of their horoscope (Commonly referred as "Sevvai Dhosha" in
    Tamil Astronomy) or the hostile influence of Raghu, Kethu and Saturn. Those who follow these
    directions fervently get the following favours:
    Those who suffer from
    1. Sevvai Dhosha get a good life partner,
    2. Saturn's retardation get peace of mind,
    3. Issues beget children,
    4. unemployed get suitable jobs, etc.
    3) There is a big lamp which is kept burning all the 24 hours of a day at the Sanctum Sanctorium of Sri
    Pambatti Siddhar. It consumes one litre of gingelly oil per day. Sri Pambatti Siddhar protects the
    interests of those who keep it burning and workship him earnestly. Daily devotees bring garlands,
    flowers, camphor, incense sticks, coconuts, bananas and other fruits for the daily adoration of the
    Parabrahamam Statue established on the Samadhi of Sri Pambatti Siddhar. No doubt they get His
    blessings in full measure.
    4) This is an exquisitely carved four-sided idol. At the top it is a 14-headed cobra spreading its hoods,
    with figures of Lord Vishnu on the east, Lord Siva and splendid Goddess Gomathi on the south, Lord
    Muruga on the west and Lord Ganesh on the north. This signifies that the 14-headed Cobra, Sri
    Pambatti Siddhar, contains the Three Lords in Himself. This also implies that HE is Parabrahman
    Himself.
    5) This Siddhar temple is popularly known by the epithet 'Samadhi of the Munificent Philanthropist' for
    the obvious reason that large scale mass feeding was frequently conducted here by Sri Siddharaja
    Swamiji. Currently the mass feedings are organized by the S.P.S.S.P. trust. True to the epithet, on the
    days of Adi Thapas in the month of July-August, a very extensive mass feeding is performed every
    year. So far 16 such feedings have been accomplished and over 20,000 people are fed on each
    occasion.
    Further, all devotes who visit the shrine are fed daily and hence without an iota of exaggeration it is
    called 'Annadana Samadhi'. Everyone is invited to go in large numbers to this famous shrine of Sri
    Pambatti Siddhar at Sankarankoil, get His blessings and have a foretaste of the celestial bliss.

    DEAR NRR JI

    Even I go through the songs of azhuguni siddhar. Some special songs are written by him only for other siddhas. (It is for them to understand as it has many secret codes for them). Also some songs like you mentioned "MOOLA PATHADIYO MOOVIRANDU VASALADI" are songs related to Yoga. Will explain the same next after finishing "Kudhambai siddhar" songs. Iam sure I will expect lot of discussions and support when I take Azhuguni siddhar as many of his songs are indirect in nature.

    siddhars' paadalgal

    Dear sri Durgadasanji,

    Many thanks. I shall wait.

    In my opinion, Pattinathaar's songs must help one cultivate
    vairagya since he was forthright in pointing out the anithyathvam
    of human life and relationships. Dont you think so sir ?

    All the Siddhars' songs have deep and hidden meaning and surely
    it makes us think quite a lot to understand. These are great
    treasures, and I am very glad that you are bringing them to the
    open.

    There is no second opinion in that sir. He is a perfect siddhar. One small incident which is not much known in his history.

    The next day after he turned to sanyasic life, the chola king ruling the part got annoyed and he also got a doubt whether a person who dwelled amidst of that much royalty can be just turned opposite all of a sudden. So, he prepared himself to see him. The king met pattinathar and asked him, "You left all your properties all of a sudden. But what is the use you saw in this?". While asking this, the king was standing before pattinathar and the siddhapurusha was sitting under a tree. Pattinathar showed himself and said "THIS". Then he explained, "See oh king. When I was a royal chettiar, many a times I had visited your court. But all the times, I am the person who came there to meet you and today you came to meet me. When I meet you, always you will be sitting in the great throne, but today you are standing and am sitting infront of you. Whenever I came there, I will praise you. But today you came here to praise the sadhus.

    These are the things which I got from this life...

    How true he is. The real siddha doesnt care for anything. As they know nothing is their property, they never get harmed mentally.
