I was introduced to the Sidha Margam when I went to read the Kaanda Nadi in 2002. Nadi Guru Senthilkumar
from Avinasi was in Malaysia then. He passed by a small booklet SIDHARGAL POTRI THOGUPPU by the
Sri Agathiyar Sanmarga Sangam, Turaiyur – 2001, carrying all the names of the Sidhas. Sivabalan who had
brought in Sentilkumar gave me a painting of Agathiyar at the same moment. Sentilkumar performed the prayer
to Agathiyar and the Sidhas and started me off on a journey of sheer amazement.
My first venture into and attempt at writing was when I compiled the Sidha hymns that I had been singing
during prayers into a book of praise to Sidhas, SIDHARGALPOTRI THOGUPPU. The hymns were from
various sources: Thavathiru Rangaraja Desigar1
(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 publishers and 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 that you now hold in your hands.
This compilation of hymns in Tamil and with transliteration in English is targeted for the non-tamil speaking
devotees so that they too can participate and join in singing the praise of the Sidhas by following the
transliteration given and partake the bliss that is derived in singing praises to Agathiyar and the Sidhas.
These hymns are applicable to other deities too with the mere replacement of their names or Namam as I have
done in certain hymns (the substitute names are in brackets).

It has been a mere ten years since I came to the path of the sidhas. I consider myself still new to this path and
still investigating it. I am grateful to the following people who had directly or indirectly helped me on this
journey of sheer amazement.
My parents, Avadaiyappa Chettiar and Valliammai and my siblings;
My wife and children:
Kannan of Kelana Computer Service Center in Klang for passing me the Sakti Font that has made it
possible for me to write in Tamil;
Dr Krishnan, friend, sidha practitioner and astrologer who made me aware of the existence of the nadi;
My colleague Muralitharan Saminathan who spoke about his experience reading the nadi and pointed
me to Sivabalan;
Sivabalan of the Agathiyan Shelter in Malaysia who had brought in the Nadi Guru Sentilkumar from
Nadi Guru Sentilkumar of Avinasi who spent much time in locating my relevant nadi and who started
me off on the path of the sidha with prayers to the sidhas;
Nadi Guru T. Ramesh of the Sri Agastiar Sugar Nadi Jothida Nilaiyam who has faithfully been
delivering Agathiyar’s message for me forty four times;
Thavathiru Rangaraja Desiga Swamigal of the Agathiyar Sanmarga Sangam at Ongkarakudil, in
Turaiyur, Tamilnadu who has been doing service to mankind; feeding the poor with contributions from
the public; and who has been doing Tavam for a long time now for the wellbeing of mankind;
Supramania Swami of Thiruvanamalai, my first guru, who revealed my mission and began working on
Tavayogi Thangarasan Adigal of the Sri Agathiyar Sri Thava Murugar Gnana Peedham Thirukovil in
Kallar who took me in as a disciple and molded me further;
And finally to the almighty Lord who choose to shower his grace on this person and send his
missionaries – Agathiyar, Ramalinga Adigal, Jeganatha Swamigal and the Sidhas, to save him from
plunging further into ignorance.
I would also like to thank all the authors and publishers from whose works I have sourced and put together this
