South North Siddhas Misinformation.Correct List


I would call it criminal to assign Religion,Region, Caste, and language to Siddhas and Yogis.

This is exactly what has happened in india regarding Siddhars.

We have Tamil Siddhars,North indian Siddhas,Maha Purusha, Yogins of North India,Yogis of South india,Islamic Siddhars et al.

Siddas are Realized Souls, who transcend Time and Space.

They have no religion , caste , creed and do not belong to any one specifically but to Humanity.

This business of categorising them was stated by the Britishers as a part of dismantling Hinduism.

I have a few Posts on this issue.

The Missionaries in their effort to demolish Sanatana Dharam assumed Indian/Hindu Identities beginning with Robert De Nobili in Tamil Nadu.

They infiltrated into Hinduism under the garb of embracing it,learnt the local languages and Sanskrit , misinterpreted,misinformed, created forgeries of Hindu Literature ,apart from producing Christian literature modled afer Hindu Texts.

Thus they call the Bible as Vedaagamam. have even Jesus Sahasra nama!

These interpolations have resulted in the pollution of Indian Texts.

They have not spared even the Vedas, with Max Mueller leading the pack

Please check out my Post on Max Muller the Fraud’s quotes.

As it is Sanatana Dharma Texts do not have a written tradition.

They are transmitted orally.

So when some one embraces your Religion, pretend respect for it and prepares a written of these texts, people tend to take it as the Truth.

This is what happened to Hinduism and specifically to the Treasures of Siddhas.

Even to-day a Siddha  is considered by many as charlatans!

How does one correct this?

By producing the original records from the Oral Tradition.

I am trying to do this.

Eightty four Siddhas.jpg Charurasi Siddhas.

I must admit I have posted a few articles on Tamil Siddhars,North Indian Siddhas List ,guilty of the accusation I am making of these interpolators.

I have given these titles because people would read and understand only these terms as they have been fed on this.

Now to the Truth.

A Siddha is one who has transcended Citta.

Chitta is higher than Intellect.

Activity of he Brain in Mind.

Direction of the Mind is by the Intellect.

Chitta is on a Higher plane than Intellect, Buddhi.

Please refer my Posts on Yoga Sutras.

Patanjali defines Yoga as the cessation of the modifications of Chitta,

Yogaha, Chitta Vrutti Nirodhah.

Sidhhars are people who have transcended the Chitta and as such are were caled Chittas.

Also there are eight special powers come on the way to Self Realization.

They are Eight in number, called Ashtama Siddhis.

Please refer my post for more details.

The Siddhas, having realized the self , have transcended even these Siddhis.

That is also a reason why they are called Siddas.

So any realized Soul who meets this criteria is a Siddha.

How does one identify a Siddha?

I shall be posting on this shortly.

Hence there is no caste,creed,for the  Siddhas.

They are reported to be Timeless .

They can speak in any language.

For some reason they choose a particular language, Tamil, Hindi, Sanskrit and others.

That does not mean they  belong to one group.

And there is this seed sown by the west.

Some Siddhas have attained Realization by following Buddhism, especially Mahayana.

So they are shown as a distinct group.

This is incorrect.

A Siddha is a Siddha whether he followed Hinduism or Buddhism.

Please read my Posts on Siddhas, Siddhas of North India Guru Parampara,Bhogar to get a complete picture of Indian Siddhas

Abhayadatta Sri is an Indian scholar of the 12th century who is attributed with recording the hagiographies of the eighty-four siddha in a text known as The History of the Eighty-four Mahasiddha (Sanskrit: Caturasitisiddha pravrtti; Wylie: grub thob brgyad bcu tsa bzhi’i lo rgyus).

Dowman holds that the eighty-four Mahasiddha are spiritual archetypes:

The number eighty-four is a “whole” or “perfect” number. Thus the eighty-four siddhas can be seen as archetypes representing the thousands of exemplars and adepts of the tantric way. The siddhas were remarkable for the diversity of their family backgrounds and the dissimilarity of their social roles. They were found in every reach of the social structure: kings and ministers, priests and yogins, poets and musicians, craftsmen and farmers, housewives and whores.[2]

Reynolds (2007) states that the mahasiddha tradition “evolved in North India in the early Medieval Period (3–13 cen. CE). Philosophically this movement was based on the insights revealed in the Mahayana Sutras and as systematized in the Madhyamaka and Chittamatrin schools of philosophy, but the methods of meditation and practice were radically different than anything seen in the monasteries.[3] He proffers that the mahasiddha tradition “broke with the conventions of Buddhist monastic life of the time, and abandoning the monastery they practiced in the caves, the forests, and the country villages of Northern India. In complete contrast to the settled monastic establishment of their day, which concentrated the Buddhist intelligenzia [sic.] in a limited number of large monastic universities, they adopted the life-style of itinerant mendicants, much as the wandering Sadhus of modern India.”[3]

The charnel ground conveys how great mahasiddhas in the Nath and Vajrayana traditions such as Tilopa (988–1069) and Gorakshanath (fl. 11th – 12th century) yoked adversity to till the soil of the path and accomplish the fruit, the “ground” (Sanskrit: āśraya; Wylie: gzhi) of realization:[4]

The charnel ground is not merely the hermitage; it can also be discovered or revealed in completely terrifying mundane environments where practitioners find themselves desperate and depressed, where conventional worldly aspirations have become devastated by grim reality. This is demonstrated in the sacred biographies of the great siddhas of the Vajrayāna tradition. Tilopa attained realization as a grinder of sesame seeds and a procurer for a prominent prostitute. Sarvabhakṣa was an extremely obese glutton, Gorakṣa was a cowherd in remote climes, Taṅtepa was addicted to gambling, and Kumbharipa was a destitute potter. These circumstances were charnel grounds because they were despised in Indian society and the siddhas were viewed as failures, marginal and defiled.

…..

The Caturasiti-siddha-pravrtti (CSP), “The Lives of the Eighty-four Siddhas”, compiled by Abhayadatta Sri, a Northern Indian Sanskrit text dating from the 11th or 12th century, comes from a tradition prevalent in the ancient city-state of Campa in the modern district of Bihar. Only Tibetan translations of this Sanskrit text seem to have survived. This text was translated into Tibetan by sMon grub Shes rab and is known as the Grub thob brgyad cu rtsa bzhi’i lo rgyus or “The Legends of the Eighty-four Siddhas”. It has been suggested that Abhayadatta Sri is identical with the great Indian scholar Mahapandita Abhayakaragupta (late 11th–early 12th century), the compiler of the iconographic compendiums Vajravali, Nispannayogavali, and Jyotirmanjari.

The other major Tibetan tradition is based on the list contained in the Caturasiti-siddhabhyarthana (CSA) by Ratnakaragupta of Vajrasana, identical with Bodhgaya (Tib.: rDo rje gdan) located in Bihar, Northern India. The Tibetan translation is known as Grub thob brgyad cu rtsa bzhi’i gsol ’debs by rDo rje gdan pa. There exist several Tibetan versions of the list of mahasiddhas based on the Vajrasana text. However, these Tibetan texts differ in many cases with regard to the Tibetan transcriptions of the Indian mahasiddhas names.

By convention there are eighty-four Mahasiddhas in both Hindu and Tibetan Buddhist traditions, with some overlap between the two lists. The number is congruent with the number of siddhi or occult powers held in the Indian Religions. In Tibetan Buddhist art they are often depicted together as a matched set in works such as thangka paintings where they may be used collectively as border decorations around a central figure.

Each Mahasiddha has come to be known for certain characteristics and teachings, which facilitates their pedagogical use. One of the most beloved Mahasiddhas is Virupa, who may be taken as the patron saint of the Sakyapa sect and instituted the Lamdré (Tibetan: lam ‘bras) teachings. Virupa (alternate orthographies: Birwapa/Birupa) lived in 9th century India and was known for his great attainments.

Some of the methods and practices of the Mahasiddha were codified in Buddhist scriptures known as Tantras. Traditionally the ultimate source of these methods and practices is held to be the historical Buddha Shakyamuni, but often it is a transhistorical aspect of the Buddha or deity Vajradhara or Samantabhadra who reveals the Tantra in question directly to the Mahasiddha in a vision or whilst they dream or are in a trance. This form of the deity is known as a sambhogakaya manifestation. The sadhana of Dream Yoga as practiced in Dzogchen traditions such as the Kham, entered the Himalayan tantric tradition from the Mahasiddha, Ngagpa and Bonpo. Dream Yoga or “Milam” (T:rmi-lam; S:svapnadarśana), is one of the Six Yogas of Naropa.[citation needed]

Four of the eighty-four Mahasiddhas are women.[9] They are:

  • Manibhadra, the Perfect Wife
  • Lakshmincara, The Princess of Crazy wisdom
  • Mekhala, the elder of the 2 Headless Sisters
  • Kanakhala, the younger of the 2 Headless Sisters.

Manu Dravida Ancestor Precedes Daksha Dravida Sanatana Dharma


I was intrigued by the fact that the Shiva worship starts with Daksha, who is the first Human being by Brahma for each Yuga.

And Daksha Kingdom was in the North of the Vindhyas.

Daksha’s daughter married Shiva.Daksha with Veerabhadra.jpg “Painting on paper depicting ‘Virabhadra The red-hued deity is coiffed exactly like Śiva. This is an unusual rendering of Virabhadra. The face of the Ganga peeps out of the dreadlocks, while loose jatas fly around his head. On his forehead is a prominent tripundra. Side fangs protrude from his mouth and a bushy moustache grows on his upper lip. In his upper right hand is a damaru, in his upper left hand a flame, the lower right hand carries a sword and the lower left a buckler. The attributes in his upper hands are unusual, as they generally bear the bow and the arrow. He is dressed in a dhoti adorned by sashes on the sides and an angavastra is draped on his elbows. Among his ornaments is a long white garland. On his feet are toe-knob sandals. At his left stands the ram-headed Daksha, sporting tripundra marks on his forehead and arms dressed in dhoti and with the angavastra tied around his hips.” Image credit.”Virabhadra Daksha” by Unknown – http://www.britishmuseum.org/research/search_the_collection_database/search_object_details.aspx?objectid=3058344&partid=1&output=Places%2f!!%2fOR%2f!!%2f41361%2f!%2f41361-2-20%2f!%2fPainted+in+Thanjavur%2f!%2f%2f!!%2f%2f!!!%2f&orig=%2fresearch%2fsearch_the_collection_database%2fadvanced_search.aspx&currentPage=1&numpages=10.

Vishnu worship seems to have been later than that of Shiva in the South, Dravida worship.

Rama’s ancestor Satyavrata Manu migrated from the South to Ayodhya, where his son Ikshvaku founded the Ikshvaku Dynasty..

If Daksha were to be the first Human being created then how do we account for Manu?

Manu seems to pre date Daksha as,

1.Daksha came later, in the beginning of the Yuga, whereas Manu is for Manvantara.

A Manu’s lifespan is 71 Mahayugas (306,720,000 years).

‘Yuga  is the name of an epoch or era within a four age cycle. According to Hindu cosmology, life in the universe is created and destroyed once every 4.1 to 8.2 billion years,] which is one full day and night for Brahma. The lifetime of Brahma himself believed to be 311 trillion and 40 billion years as per Hindu cosmology.’

Manus and Saptha Rishis are for every Manvantara..

One of the Saptha Rishis is Agastya.

‘The earliest list of the Seven Rishis is given by Jaiminiya Brahmana 2.218-221: Vashista, Bharadvaja, Jamadagni, Gautama, Atri,Visvamitra, and Agastya, followed by Brihadaranyaka Upanisad 2.2.6 with a slightly different list: Gautama and Bharadvāja, Viśvāmitra and Jamadagni, Vashiṣṭha and Kaśyapa, and Atri, Brighu. The late Gopatha Brāhmana 1.2.8 has Vashiṣṭa, Viśvāmitra, Jamadagni, Gautama, Bharadvāja, Gungu, Agastya, Bhrighu and Kaśyapa..’

We find Agastya in the South advising Rama in the battle field not to lose heart and chant Adhitya Hrudayam on Lord Surya to win the war against Ravana.

Then we have Lord Shiva as the Father of Tamil Language.

Of course Sanskrit is also from Shiva’s Damaru, Maheswara Sutras.(Please read m Post on this)

We find the legends of Shiva in the north from the marriage of Sati ,daughter of Daksha with Shiva.

Nothing more of Shiva is mentioned in these North Indian Legends.

Manus, Hinduism.Jpg Manus

‘In The Immortals of Meluha, Manu is said to be a prince from south India. His family, the Pandyas having ruled the mythical land of Sangamatamil for many generations. The decadence of the Kings incurred the wrath of the gods. A great deluge submerged the entire civilization. Manu having foreseen this escaped with his followers to the higher northern lands. Manu turned into an ascetic. Eventually Manu’s prayers pacified the gods and the water abated.

In the South Shiva worship has been in vogue much earlier as Adi Shiva, The Silent Teacher,Dakshina Murthy,First Yogi who initiated Agastya, who initiated Bhogar and Kriya Babaji.

The we have Lord Subrahmanya called as Murugan and His worship is quite old.

Though the Tamil Grammar, earliest of Tamil works assigns Varuna, Indra, Vishnu, Murugan(Subrahmanya), and Devi to each of the landmass , Kurinji,Marutham, Mullai, Neydhal and Palai, Shiva always remains in the background as the Chief.

He is called as the Ancient of the Ancients.

‘Munnai Pazhamprutkum Munnaip Pazham Porule’

He is also called Pirva Yaakaip Periyon’

That is Eldest though Unborn.

Sanskrit also calls Him as Ayonija, one who does not stay in the womb.

We have a lot of references to the South in the Puranas and Ithihasas about Tamils.

We have references to a Tamil King Perunchotru Udiyan Cheralaathan performing Tharpana for the dead in the Mahabharata War in Chera Kingdom.

He also provided food for both Kaurva and Pandava Armies during the Mahabharata war.

Vedas mention the spices , Peacocks, Special sandalwood.elephants being imported from the South.

During Draupadi Swayamvara Tamil Kings were present.

Tamil Kingas attended Rama and Sita Marriage at Mithila.

The vanaras were in Kishkinta pre dating Rama and were Shiva worshipers.

Hanuman is one and is considered to be an Amsa of Shiva, some say He is an Avatar of Shiva.

Considering all these facts and admitting these facts provided by the Vedas,Puranas,Ramayana and Mahabharata, it is quite probable that he Sanatana Dharma was in place much before what is found in the North.

Please refer my posts on Shiva’s Marriage date. Agastya Date, Ramayana Mahabharata Dates,Ram’s ancestor Satavrata Manu being a Dravida,Thiruvannamalai Billion Year Old and many more.

Siddhas Of North India Guru Parampara List


The title of this Post is a Misnomer in the sense that the Siddhas do not belong to any particular Region or Language.

I had provided the title to denote the Siddhas of the north of the Vindhyas(even here there are some from the South)

Generally the name Siddha is associated with the South, more specifically Tamil.

Sidhhas from the North seem to be following Patanjali, while in the south Agastya and Bhogar.

Agastya seems to have been the first after Lord Shiva.

One fact I have noticed is that Goraknath is found as a mentor of many a Siddhas from the North.

There is a Gorakka Nathar among the Siddhas in the South.

It is referred in Tamil texts that  there are 1008 Siddhas.

Many in the North are not aware of the Siddhas of the South and the South of the North.

This Post is to point out that all Siddhas belong to the Group of Realized Souls and we are not aware of it.

Following is a List of Siddhas from the North.

Siddha Bhogar Designed Aircraft Tamils In South America


The world of Siddhars is unique and their thought run parallel to Sanatana Dharma, if one were to go by their works.

Many thoughts found in their works are reflected in the Sanatana Dharma.

This could be because of the fact that we were fed the concocted History of India, where Tamil is portrayed as anti Sanatana Dharma,inimical to North.

Hence with this background one tends to think Tamil System of Tought is different from the Sanatana Dharma.

But my researches for the past six years show that  this is not so.

One finds the echo in the other.

The problem is which preceded.

This seems difficult to fathom as the time frames are quite vast, running into thousands of years,

This BC, AD business has no relevance in Indian Thoughts because of its antiquity.

The Siddhas are realized souls who transcend Time and Space and they are believed and in many cased have been sen in Physical frame.

To cite a few, Babaji of Himalayas.Trilinga Swamigal, Kuzhandaianada Swamigal and many more from both he south and north of Vindhyas.

While the worship of Shiva has not been  mentioned in the Vedas, the Tamils swear by it  from their fist Grammar book, Tholkaappiyam.

Shiva is credited with the Creation of the Tamil language, with His son Lord Subrahmanya as his successor.

And Sage Agstya was entrusted with the job of nurturing Tamil.

Agastya is considered to be one of the early co-founders of Tamil, if the term could be used.

Agastya composed the first Tamil Grammar work called Agathiyam.

Agastya is a Siddha.

Bhogar, is the disciple of Agastya.

Bhogar installed the Idol of Lord Subrahmanya at Palani,Tamil Nadu with Nine poisonous herbs and this Idol is being worshiped even now and it is expected to last this Kaliyga, the prest aeon.

Bhogar was also a Yogin as the other other Siddhars..

He indulged in Astral Traveling, can use Transmigration at Will.

He is recorded to have been to Chile in South America.

This has been cited in their legends.(?)

Bhogar was also reported to have designed Aircraft for Traveling and used it.

I had written articles on the connection between the Tamil and the Aztecs,Mayas .

Kindly refer these Posts to have more information.

Bhogar a Senior Siddha surveying far away places.jpg Bhogar, traversing the sky, observes faraway places like Arabia, Rome, and China.Bhogar a Senior Siddha surveying far away places.

In one of his songs Bhoganāthar claims to have flown to China at one point in a sort of airplane which he built: he held discussions with Chinese Siddhas before returning to India (Kailasapathy, 1969, p. 197-211). His visit to South America has been confirmed by accounts left by the Muycas of Chile:

“Bocha, who gave laws to Muycas, was a white, bearded man, wearing long robes, who regulated the calendar, established festivals, and vanished in time like others (other remarkable teachers who had come across the Pacific according to numerous legends of Incas, Aztecs and Mayans).” (Lal 1965, p. 20)Citaitons.Material in this chapter is based upon the life story of the Siddha Bhoganāthar narrated by Yogi S.A.A. Ramaiah in his introduction to the third volume of the collected works of Bhoganathar, Bogar Kandam Yogam: Babaji’s Yoga of Boganathar, and notes in lectures.

It is here that Macchamuni (Macchendranātha), one of his disciples, later composed the first great treatise on the scientific art of Kriya Tantra Yoga, from which arose the Kalpia and Kapalika tantric traditions.

Hanuman Sheds Tears Bangalore, Govt. Blocks The Only Video


There was a comment for my Post Hanuman sheds Tears, Real Life Story in Facebook that the Idol of Lord Hanuman at Banswadi, a suburb of Bangalore sheds tears on Hanuman Jayanthi Day.

I sought information from the writer.

Hanuman, Banswadi, Bangalore.

No sooner than I posted the reply, I realised that I could Google for the information.

I did just that.

For the web search term ‘hanuman tears banaswadi’, I could get information.

This included the one from Bangalore Tourism .

I am providing the excerpt from the site.

But for Video search, the search returned with the only Video.

The catch is that the Video has been blocked by the Government Of India!

This is the search result.

Well, what reason could there be?

That It is Hanuman, ?

Hanuman Sheds Tears, Banswadi , Bangalore.

‘Every year on the eve of Hanuman Jayanthi which falls between December 16 to January 14 usually on a full moon-day in the month of Chaitra, this deity is attracted by a miracle; it so happens that tears come out from the idol and people flock from all parts of Bangalore to witness this miracle.

The Most important prehistory of this temple was constructed in dravidian fashion, it is 100 years old. and it has small small temples to denote their prehistory themselves and dedicated to Lord Rama, Shiva and Ganapathi within the walled compound.
