  13. 13. 13 PREFACE My first venture into and attempt at writing was when I compiled hymns for Siddhas that I had been singing during prayers into a book of praise to Siddhas, and titled it SIDDHARGAL POTRI THOGUPPU. The hymns were from various sources namely Thavathiru Rangaraja Desiga Swamigal1 (of the Sri Agathiyar Sanmaarga Sangam, Ongarakudil, Turaiyur, Tamilnadu, India); Tavayogi Thangarasan Adigalaar2 (of the Sri Agathiyar Sri Thava Murugar Gnana Peedham Thirukovil in Kallar, Kovai, Tamilnadu, India); and other publications. As I came across more hymns I included them too and the volume later expanded to become AGATHIYAR PUSAI or THE COMPLETE BOOK OF PRAISE TO AGATHIYAR now available at http://www.scribd.com/doc/93769534/Agathiyar-Pusai-The-Complete-Book-of-Praise-to-Agathiyar-Tamil- Transliteration-in-English or at http://www.slideshare.net/shanmugamavadaiyappa/Agathiyar-pusai-march- 2013. I had compiled the forty-six Nadi3 readings until 15 February 2013. The Nadi, which is also known as suvadi or olai in Tamil, are revelations about individuals written on dried palm leaves by Agathiyar and other Siddhas. I had also kept a journal of my travels in India. I kept a spiritual diary too to monitor my progress. Initially these notes and jottings were for my personal reference only but when I came to know about Ramalinga Adigal4 , Agathiyar5 and the Siddhas6 ; and came to meet Thavathiru Rangaraja Desiga Swamigal, Supramania Swami of 1 http://agathiar.org/ 2 http://indianheartbeat.wix.com/tavayogi 3 Nadi Astrology is a form of Hindu astrology practiced in Tamil Nadu, India. It is based on the belief that the past, present and the future lives of all humans were foreseen by Hindu Siddhas in ancient time. The texts are mainly written in Vatteluttu, which is an ancient Tamil script. There are different schools of thought as to the author of these leaves. They were written by a Tamil Siddha called Agathiyar who is said to have had divine revelations. This doctrine of astrology was made famous by astrologers around the Vaitheeswaran Temple in the state of Tamil Nadu. Based on the thumb impression, Nadi leaves are found.

He was one of the most famous Tamil Saints and also one of the greatest Tamil poets of the 19th century and belongs to a line of Tamil saints known as "gnana siddhars" (gnana means higher wisdom). The Samarasa Suddha Sanmarga Sathiya Sangam was spread and passed on by him not only in theory but mainly in practice by his own way of living which was itself inspiration for his followers. Through the notion of Suddha Sanmarga Sangam, the saint endeavored to eliminate the menace of caste. According to Suddha Sanmarga, the prime aspects of human life should be love connected with charity and divine practice leading to achievement of pure knowledge. (Source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) 5 Agastya (Also known as Father of Tamil Literature and siddha), is one of the Saptarishis (meaning "seven Siddhas") who are extolled at many places in the Vedas and a revered Vedic Siddha who is also the author of Agastya Samhita [ref: Dharma Bharathi]. Agastya is a name of Shiva too. The word is sometimes written as Agasti and Agathiyar. A-ga means a mountain, and Asti means thrower. Agastya the Muni, son of Urvashi was born of both Gods, Mitra and Varuna. Agastya is also the Indian astronomical name of the star of Canopus, is said to be the 'cleanser of waters', since its rising coincides with the calming of the waters of the Indian Ocean.
  14. 14. 14 Tiruvannamalai, and Tavayogi Thangarasan Adigal I wanted to give back something in return. These notes and jottings then saw the light of the day through the numerous websites and blogs that I created: http://www.indianheartbeat.fws1.com, http://www.indianheartbeat.20m.com, http://www.tavayogi.webs.com, http://www.wix.com/tavayogi/agathiyan I have since removed some websites, revamped existing ones and created new sites. Check out the following: http://facebook.com/shanmugam.avadaiyappa http://indianheartbeat.wix.com/agathiyan http://indianheartbeat.wix.com/tavayogi http://shanmugamavadaiyappa.wix.com/indian-heartbeat-songs http://www.youtube.com/user/siddhaheartbeat http://www.scribd.com/agathiyanproductions http://www.slideshare.net/shanmugamavadaiyappa/fire-of-devotion http://www.flickr.com/photos/agathiyar/ When I received positive reviews from readers, through their e-mails, phone calls and when I came face to face, I realized that what started as a means of my gratification to my Gurus and the Siddhas had in fact helped and benefited others too. The idea to compile these writings into a book then took shape. These books were made available online at http://www.scribd.com/indianheartbeat : SIDDHARGAL POTRI THOGUPPU (Tamil), AGATHIYAR POTRI PAADAL THOGUPPU (Tamil), AGATHIYA MAHA RISHI (Tamil), SAINT JEGANATHAR, CHITRAMUTHU ADIGAL & TAVAYOGI (Tamil), SIDDHA MARGAM - The Path of the Siddhas (English), IN SEARCH OF THE SIDDHAS (English), He is considered as the father of Tamil literature and compiled the first Tamil grammar called Agathiyam. In Tamil language the term 'Agam' means inside and 'iyar' means belong. One who belong inside (soul) is the Tamil meaning for Agathiyar. (Source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) 6 Siddhar were spiritual adepts who possessed the ashta siddhis, or the eight supernatural powers. Siddha Agathiyar is considered the Guru of all Siddhars, and the Siddha medicine system is believed to have been handed over to him by Lord Muruga, son of the Hindu God Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi. Siddhars are the followers of Lord Shiva. Agathiyar is the first Siddhar. His disciples and other siddhars contributed thousands of texts on Siddhar litratures, including medicine and form the propounders of the system in this world.
