Ananda Jyothiamma is an avid and regular reader of Siddha Heartbeat (SH). She had gracefully shared many stories and her experiences on this blog in the past. She has been a source of encouragement, often giving feedback and pointers. So have many of my friends at Agathiyar Vanam Malaysia (AVM) during our regular meetings and through calls. Many readers of SH too have appraised this blog, leaving kind comments that keeps us going.

Ananda Jyothiamma wrote in some time back :
  • Your last post was Stupendous.. really fantastic... the manner of Presentation.. one which u tagged me.. fantastic. It's a Dictionary... more or less... really good.... the complete history of Kalar till today... yes.. there is nothing more left to say nor project. U HAVE DONE A CLEAN, ELABORATE Encyclopaedia..... really good..... documentation is there Shan... but it requires THEIR GRACE TO PROJECT LUCIDLY THEIR WORK... YOU HAVE LOTS OF THEIR GRACE AND BLESSINGS. Even a Layman can decifer that by seeing your work done.... leave alone one being in the Siddha Marg... COZ I KNOW THE SOURCE WITHIN 'THAT WORK' AND I ALSO KNOW THE INDIVIDUAL BEHIND THOSE POSTS.. AND I ALSO KNOW THE BLISS AND SATISFACTION DERIVED FROM THAT WORK... SO I CAN APPRECIATE EVERY WORD MENTIONED THERE...
Several others too wrote in to express their gratitude in hosting this blog.

  • Vanakam, Dear Shanmugam! Thank U very match for organizing Agathya pujas on-line!
I would like to share the following mails from a devotee who heeded every word of Agathiyar and saw immediate changes take place in his life.
  • Dear Sir, Thanks for this blog. I am Mesmerised with the articles therein and I want to meet Tavayogi ji and stay in the ashram. Is it possible. Can I get a reading of Jeev Nadi. Plz help.
  • Sir, This Thursday I was lucky to be able to see the homam and abhishek of Agathiar Ji on U stream.
  • Sir I need a Jeeva Nadi Reading urgently. Only the Siddhas can help me in my journey and help me attain the final frontier. I wish I could reach there immediately and take their blessings. Rgds
  • Sir ... In the meantime please pray for us that our nadi leaves are found and Agathiyar Ji and the Siddhas bless us and show us the way. Hoping this will be a new beginning. Agathiyar Ji is always present with You. Plz pray on our behalf too. Rgds
  • Dear Sir, I did hear my nadi being read. Its so amazing. My fathers name, mothers name, Wifes name, What my Son is doing... What my daughter is pursuing in studies ... everything was precisely mentioned. My sisters ... about them. Also about my Guru Ji. Where he is residing and where his ashram is. The troubled times in this life. A bit about my past... and most importantly atonements to be done. My life to be...all was mentioned. Not much about my past was revealed ... I feel as if I am a chosen one of Agathiar Ji for having told me all this and how to ease out of the troubled times at present. This mail is to thank you as you have also been a medium of Agathiar Ji for me to have led me to Selvam. Thank You Sir and do keep us in your prayers always. Since I was going to Chennai do you think it wd be possible to visit Tavayogi Ji ashram and take his and the Siddhas blessings. Rgds
  • Sir With the blessings of Agathiar ji I and my wife are proceesing for atonements. Your blog has been a guiding factor for me. Hope Agaithiar Ji stays with us throughout the journey and a new phase begins in our life. Thanx a lot and do keep us in your prayers to Agaithiar ji. Rgds
  • Sir Greetings! Further to my previous mail... hv completed all atonements. It was an out of the world experience. I am sure agathiar ji was there throughout. Jeeva nadi has tld m so many things...past ...present... future....I was tld what I had dn in one birth of mine. I was also tld that my atonements are complete. I was gvn remedy for everything. I was also tld abt my spiritual journey. I feel as if I hv someone to talk to....someone to look up to....someone who will make an ignorant person like me some day walk the path of the Siddhas. 

Agathiyar in the above Nadi reading mentions that many have gained from visiting AVM and Siddha Heartbeat (SH) and watching the live stream of the Siddha Puja. We at AVM and SH are blessed to be of service to fellow devotees.


In the very first Nadi reading itself Agathiyar had enlightened me on the existence of karma and its impact on every individuals lives, and karma been the reason for taking rebirth again and again. He was  gracious enough to reveal my past too and showed me ways to eradicate/ reduce/ cleanse my karma.

For a start he asked that I complete certain atonements or parikarams that took me to many temples in Malaysia and later in India. He gave me a grace period of two years to complete them before coming back to him. I immediately set out to complete my atonements locally and in India the following year.

I was destined to see the Nadi only when I was 44 years of age, no sooner nor later. Agathiyar recommended that I carry out certain Agamas in the Pothu Kaandam to bring on some clarity and understanding. He asked that I engaged in devotion and service too.

In the Santhi Parikaara (Karma) Kaandam he asked that I carry out Noolukku Dhanam or paying homage to my Nadi through a small contribution and a prayer to the Nadi and its author, the Siddhas.

In the Theechai Kaandam, I was asked to chant Lord Ganapathy's Mantra, worship the Siddhas, and conduct Shiva Puja.

Finally in the Jnana Kaandam, Agathiyar mentioned that it was destined that I read the Jnana Nool only then. Agathiyar said I needed to engage in worship, puja, conduct Shiva Puja and Agathiyar Puja and associate with spiritual movements. I was to carry out certain practices that would come my way through a guru. As Karma stood in my way to spiritual progress, Agathiyar asked that I visit all 5 element temples of Lord Shiva, of which Thiruvannamalai should be my last stop. I was asked to circumambulate Arunachala hill on a full moon day. I needed to visit Palani and offer my prayers to Lord Muruga too. Agathiyar initiated certain yogic practices in the Nadi too to cleanse the body. He taught Vaasi practice that was to be performed during the auspicious period of 2 hours before daybreak. Agathiyar said that these practices would be more meaningful if a theecha from a guru is received. The most compassionate father said that I shall meet my guru when I least expected. Agathiyar blessed that he shall be on hand to guide me further through his Nadi. I was asked to chant the names of the Siddhas as they were mantras on their own. Agathiyar said all secrets and clarity lies within him. I was asked to contribute towards the building of temples and eventually build one for him too. I was asked to be of service to others too. Agathiyar ended the reading by asking to see him when I was 45 years of age.

Besides fulfilling the atonements Agathiyar also asked that I come to his path. The Siddha path was something new to me. Nadi Nool Aasan Sentilkumar who read my Nadi graciously gave me a booklet with Siddha names and initiated me by chanting their names. Sivabalan who brought Sentilkumar to read the Nadi presented me with a portrait of Agathiyar. Next I headed to the local branch of the Sri Agathiyar Sanmarga Gurukulum in Kampong Laksamana, Batu Caves and Agathiyar Sanmarga Sangam in Dengkil, both initiated by Rengaraja Desigar. I knew of their existence through their massive donation drives door to door and at festivities. I picked up more books here.

In 2003 when I finally made my pilgrimage to carry out my atonements in India, I found my very first guru Supramania Swami in Thiruvannamalai. During my visit I included the Agathiyar Sanmarga Sangam in Turaiyur in my itinerary. I had a chance to meet Rengaraja Desigar personally. I picked up more books while there.

In 2005 I dropped by to pay my respects to Tavayogi Thangarasan Adigal who was to launch and officiate a local branch of his Sri Agathiyar Gnana Peedham in Malaysia. I found my second guru in him. Tavayogi introduced me to Nadi Nool Aasan T.Ramesh. Agathiyar after a year blessed me with a reading again as promised. He told me that Tavayogi was my guru.

True to his words, after I accepted Tavayogi as my guru, changes immediately began to take place. Surprisingly after 45 seconds the audio recording of the prized Nadi reading died down to a hiss. It was practically erased to the surprise of Ramesh and me. When I went back to Ramesh he reread the Aasi Nadi again. This time their was no mention about the local chapter of the Agathiyar Gnana Peedham in Malaysia which I was to patronize as mentioned in the earlier reading. A few more places were included which I should visit in India, including Thiruvannamalai, Kallar Ashram, Palani and Agasthiyampalli too. Agathiyar promised to open his eye in his granite statue while at Agasthiyampalli. I needed to be in Courtallam too. He acknowledge that he was watching the prayers and practices that I had been continuing.

Agathiyar promised lots of surprises and miracles. He was glad that I was steadfast in upholding his teachings, and staying on his path the past year without diverting away. Hence the reason for him to continue providing more readings and guidance through the Nadi.

Till this day, I have had 53 Nadi readings. Agathiyar has guided me just as he had promised. As usual he expresses his joy in this reading too. Without his grace and blessing I doubt that I could have walked this far on the path of the Siddhas.

Friday, 27 November 2015


While walking with the Siddhas I was led onto their path beginning with Sariyai, then Kriyai, Yogam and with their grace, eventually Jnanam one day. After coming to Agathiyar, I let him lead me. He asked me to worship him and the Siddhas and Erai too. He lives in my home in the form of a bronze statue where we perform libation to him. We perform lighting the sacred fire pit ritual or homam too. All these is conducted on his directive. He knows whats best for me. He knows when I should start a regime or practice and when to end it too. A guru is one who gives one a practice and monitors his progress, and if the need be, puts an end to that very practice too.

Agathiyar starts almost everyone who comes for a Nadi reading with instructions to perform atonements or parikarams which takes one to many temples too. Agathiyar has encouraged devotees to undertake pilgrimages. Agathiyar and the Siddhas amaze their devotees by performing miracles, giving darshans and guiding them on their journeys besides performing many other mind boggling feats. 

Besides other places, I was asked to visit Agasthiyampalli where Agathiyar promised to open his eyes in my Nadi reading. He fulfilled his promise.

Surendaran Selvaratnam from Malaysia was invited personally to Pothigai Peak by Agathiyar in a Jeeva Nadi reading at Kallar. Agathiyar in the Jeeva Nadi reading called him over, telling him that he would personally give him a helping hand to climb and overcome the treacherous and slippery boulders. Agathiyar added that Korakar would accompany them, giving Suren the confidence to hike up to Pothigai peak. Surendaran successfully and safely climbed the peak.

Srimathi Nalini of Chennai went on a pilgrimage as directed by Agathiyar. She wrote, "In Jeeva Naadi (read at Kallar) Agathiyar ayya asked me to visit Pabanasam, then Agathiyar aruvi, Sadhu Krishnaveni Amma ashram and his moolasthanam at Kalyana Theertham. Next he asked me to visit Coutralam. He asked me to come to Senbagadevi aruvi."

Agathiyar promised her his darshan and blessing at Shenbaga Devi Aruvi,  "Senbagadevi aruvi karai oram nan irukken en kugai undu en vaasi kol undu adhai un sirasil thottu vanagu".

Agathiyar has graciously mentioned the significance of performing pilgrimages, in Nadi readings for Viji Amma, Saravanan Kandasamy and others too.

For those who came to Agathiyar for a solution to their problems and miseries, Agathiyar through his favorite son the late Jeeva Nadi Guru of Chennai Amarar Hanumathdasan spelled out many remedies.

Agathiyar most graciously delivers Bhogar's remedy for Aids to an individual who seeked out Agathiyar's Jeeva Nadi at, Agathiyar instructs him to carry out atonement for each member of his family to remove their past karma and only then to undertake a journey to Sathuragiri or Pothigai where certain herbs were available for preparing the Siddha medication prescribed by Bhogar, which was elaborated in detail by Agathiyar.

Besides dictating and directing others on pilgrimages, Agathiyar had Amarar Hanumathdasan himself go to numerous temples where Agathiyar would reveal a thing or two. 

Agathiyar had his favorite daughter Jnana Jyothiamma go places where she was bestowed with his grace and that of other Siddhas and Erai. 

Lord Muruga made Arunagiri of Thiruvannamalai go to several abodes of his throughout India, giving him precious gifts and upadesa at these spiritual spots at timely moments.

Raman Nambiar, after performing the last rites for his wife, headed for Tunjathu Ramanujar’s samadhi and sat in meditation. Then he continued his meditation at the Panjavarnam Cave in Palani. After Siddha Bhogar appeared in front of him and gave him an initiation, he left on a pilgrimage to the Himalayas in 1910. He returned from the Himalayas in 1913 as Gnana Pitha Shivananda Paramahansa. In 1914, he went on a pilgrimage throughout India. He was in Pavanagar, Peshawar, Tirusoor, Savakadu, and Kadathanadu before establishing the Samapanthi Bhojana Sangam in 1921. Gnana Pitha Shivananda came to Malaya in 1937 and set up the Siddha Vidhya Sangam in Setapak in Kuala Lumpur before returning back to India just before Malaya gained her independence.

Devotees of Maharajji shared many interesting facts on pilgrimages in MIRACLE OF LOVE. It is written,
Maharajji again and again sent us on specific pilgrimages. For us, it often felt as if we were merely being sent “away,” but perhaps there was more. … And Maharajji very much encouraged such pilgrimages through example and instruction.
While on one of his walks at the Kumba Mela site, Maharajji asked that his devotee pick up the dirt and smear it over him, justifying that “Saints have been coming here for thousands of years. Dada, take the dirt and touch your head.”
Many return a changed person after going on these pilgrimages.

The most compassionate father, sends his devotees on these pilgrimage for a reason. At other times Agathiyar comes knocking their doors to deliver his gifts. Ramalinga Adigal was gifted with sweet by Agathiyar who came knocking his door in the middle of night. 

The Siddhas passed a majestic Rudraksha to Tavayogi Thangarasan Adigal to be worshipped as a Shivalinga, at his doorstep at Kallar at first light a few days before Agathiyar's Jayanthi.

Jnana Jyothiamma was given gifts too by the Siddhas in the comfort of her home.


When I noticed a sack hanging on a window that once opened to a magnificent view of Arunachala or Annamalaiyaar in Supramania Swami's kudil, I immediately questioned him. He had purposely placed a window there so that he could recline on his jute bed just opposite the living room of his kudil and watch Arunachala, the sacred hill at Thiruvannamalai, in all his glory and majesty. But now he had covered it up.

Swami replied that he could not see the hill no more, as it was fiery. Hence he had shut the view. He added that he could see Siddhas atop the hill. I took a glance again at Arunachala, and I could only see a hill.

Saravanan Palanisamy has illustrated exactly what Swami had described to me then in the following sketches.

Again, I used to wonder what Supramania Swami saw at his guru Yogi Ramsuratkumar's samadhi where libation was been done on the Shivalinga and Nandhi during the Pradosham day. He sat still watching the samadhi close to an hour without even being distracted a moment. 

Photos and videos of the recent annual Karthigai Deepam celebrations at Thiruvannamalai have appeared on the net, giving us the opportunity to witness this spectacular festivity.


We at AVM sang Ramana's Aksharamanamaalai to our hearts delight.

In the Introduction to ARUNACHALA SIVA ARUNACHALA AKSHARAMANAMALAI (BRIDAL GARLAND OF LETTERS FOR ARUNACHALA) and ARUNACHALA PANCHARATNAM (FIVE GEMS ON ARUNACHALA) of BHAGAVAN SRI RAMANA MAHARSHI, published by Sri Ramanasramam, Thiruvannamalai, is written that, "Most of Bhagavan Sri Ramana's compositions were written in answer to a query put, a doubt raised, or a request made by some devotee or other."

Similarly his devotees had requested Ramana to coin a song which they could sing while going out in search of alms. This was during the period when Ramana was staying in Virupaksha cave on Arunachala hill. Some time later while he was circumambulating the sacred hill with these devotees, out came a beautiful devotional outpouring in praise of Arunachala, spontaneous from his heart. This came to be called Aksharamanamalai.
The title of this lyric poem, Arunachala Aksharamanamalai, means ‘the bridal garland of letters for Arunachala. Mana Malai is the wedding-garland which symbolises the union of the bride with the bridegroom. It also means sweet-scented garland. The poem is called Aksharamanamalai because the initial letters of the verses of the hymn are in the alphabetical order. Aksharamanamalai may also mean ‘the garland that serves as the insignia of marriage with the undecaying (akshara) Lord’. The phrase contains the name of Bhagavan Sri Ramana too — aksharamana. It is significant that the hymn is composed of 108 verses — a number that is supremely sacred.

Saravanan Palanisamy asked me if I would be able to address the public in an upcoming event organised by some devotees of Agathiyar. Balachandran Gunasekaran too had put to me a request from a similar organization asking me if I would talk on the Siddhas some time back. Tavayogi Thangarasan Adigal had asked me to speak on the Siddhas when he was visiting Malaysia some years ago. During the opening of a branch of the Sri Agathiyar Gnana Peedham in Banting then, to my complete surprise Tavayogi announce that I would speak a few words on the Siddhas. I do not exactly remember what I said then but I remember how I outwitted him and managed to save myself from that situation. After saying a few introductory words I immediately started chanting the Arutperunjhoti Mantra. All the rests who had gathered followed suit and I was spared the perils of having to give a talk to those gathered. 

Although Tavayogi assured me that I had all the qualities to speak about the Siddhas, I turned down these requests because I felt that I was inadequate and not well equipped to take on such a massive and honorable task as yet, lest I should bring shame to the Siddhas. 

Ramalinga Adigal who eventually attained a high spiritual state, one at par with Erai who gave him the power and authority to do his willing and job of creating, sustaining, perishing, veiling and blessing, very humbly had listed all his inadequacies and shortcomings in a beautiful song in his earlier days.
மருந்தறியேன் மணிஅறியேன் மந்திரம்ஒன் றறியேன்
மதிஅறியேன் விதிஅறியேன் வாழ்க்கைநிலை அறியேன்
திருந்தறியேன் திருவருளின் செயலறியேன் அறந்தான்
செய்தறியேன் மனமடங்கும் திறத்தினில்ஓர் இடத்தே
இருந்தறியேன் அறிந்தோரை ஏத்திடவும் அறியேன்
எந்தைபிரான் மணிமன்றம் எய்தஅறி வேனோ
இருந்ததிசை சொலஅறியேன் எங்ஙனம்நான் புகுவேன்
யார்க்குரைப்பேன் என்னசெய்வேன் ஏதும்அறிந் திலனே.

But somehow I developed an interest in writing instead and when I began my very first website indianheartbeat in the mid nineties and later started blogging here in 2013, Agathiyar encouraged me to write further. 

Agathiyar invited me into his path. I took up his offer, taking the hand of a siddha who could lead us to the kingdom of Erai. Although there are numerous paths to the kingdom of Erai, I chose to accept Agathiyar's hand, knowing pretty sure that I was in save hands. It has since then been a memorable journey walking with the Siddhas.

Over the past weeks my blood pressure reading took a spike to an unhealthy level, which surprised me, as I always had a perfect blood pressure of 120/80. The results disturbed the doctors too.

I had seeked medication for my fever when I was told that I had high blood pressure and a fast pulse rate. Immediately upon seeing my pressure reading of 169/98 and a pulse rate of 120, the doctor asked that I take an ECG too. The test results showed no abnormal electric activity. The doctor wanted to start me on medication, just a mild dose she assured me. But I talked her out of it. She then asked that I monitor my blood pressure every two days before she decides to put me on medication. I was asked to come in after a few days to take a blood sample to perform a Thyroid Function Test too. Finally she asked me to report back the very moment things get out of hand. 

Meanwhile I seeked Dr Krishnan for a second opinion. The Siddha doctor recommended his herbal medicine High Low, a combination of 5 herbs, namely:
  1. Rauvolfia Serpentina, (A compound in it, contains called reserpine, was used in an attempt to treat high blood pressure -
  2. Withania Somnifera, (Ashwagandha is also used as an “adaptogen” to help the body cope with daily stress -
  3. Centella Asiatica, (Studies have also shown positive effects on anxiety -
  4. Commiphora wightii or Guggul, (Improves thyroid function, helps to lower cholesterol and triglycerides, heart protection, decreases platelet stickiness and reduces risk of heart disease and stroke. It has been shown to reduce total cholesterol up to 30% in 3 months. Guggul’s cholesterol regulating properties are especially important in reducing LDL by 35% and increasing HDL by 20% in 12 weeks - and 
  5. Termanalia Arjuna, (The arjuna was introduced into Ayurveda as a treatment for heart disease by Vagbhata. Only 5 grams a day works wonders, prevents heart attack, lowers bad cholesterol)
Dr Krishnan consoles me that the pressure rose likely due to lack of sleep.

When I mentioned to my officemates of my new dilemma, one of them recommended a herbal concoction with:
  1. Clinacanthus Nutans Sabah or Sabah Snake Grass, (Lowering cholesterol, lowering high blood pressure - as its main component and 
  2. Prunus Armenia or Apricot, (The fruits are enriched with numerous health promoting phyto-chemicals; that helps prevent heart disease, reduce LDL, ("bad cholesterol") levels -
  3. Graviola or Soursop, fruit of the Annona Muricata tree, (Heart problems, palpitation, hypertension)
  4. Orthosiphon Stamineus or Misai Kucing, (The diuretic effects also explains the traditional use of Misai Kuching for high blood pressure. Modern diuretic medications are often prescribed to treat high blood pressure. The explanation is simple. Reduced water and sodium ions in the blood, lowers the pressure and makes it easier for the heart to pump. In animal studies, the phytochemical Methylripariochromene A was shown to suppress contractions in the thoracic aorta and decrease the contractile force, without significantly affecting the heart beat rate. Laboratory studies have shown that Misai Kuching inhibits 15–lipoxygenase, an enzyme thought to be involved in the development of artery blockage by LDL Cholesterol -

After consuming these herbal preparations and continuing with my daily walks and exercise, asanas, pranayama, and Erai's grace my blood pressure returned to a perfect level as before. The blood sample taken to analyse my thyroid function too did not show any abnormality.

The result on 19.11.2015

Siddha Heartbeat received more photos of the work in progress at the new site of the Kallar Ashram.



I received a mail from a devotee of Agathiyar residing in Germany. He was gracious enough to share his Nadi reading with readers of Siddha Heartbeat.
Dear Aiya,
Thank you for your quick reply. Here I wrote my experience with the Sri Gnanaskandar Jeeva Nadi – Part 1. I will get more Readings, I am thinking to write a serial of this experiences. So that everyone can profit out of it. .. can you please publish it in your blog? I will also send then this article to So That many readers will come to know about the Siddhas, Muruga and Jeeva Nadi. So that many reader can find trust in the Siddhas and Agathiyar. .. Thank you. (please see attachment)
My experience with the Sri Gnanaskandar Jeeva Nadi – Part 1
I am a Siddha devotee from Germany. At the beginning of 2015 suddenly I lost my job. I have good qualification but still it was hard for me to find a new job. My life was previously no better, I had to struggle a lot.
After reading several blogs like (,, etc.) I came to know about the Jeeva Nadi. I contacted the Skandar Upasagar to get a Jeeva Nadi reading. Normally it is not allowed to get a Jeeva Nadi reading per telephone. As I was suffering a lot, Lord Muruga and the Siddhas showed mercy upon me. 
On 12.06.2015 I get my first Jeeva Nadi reading per telephone. In this reading Lord Muruga gave accurate details about my life. Muruga even told me about birthmarks on my body and the meaning of this marks. He mentioned about a particular mark on my body which was a sign for spiritual life and the Siddha Path. Muruga told me that there are two temples in the city where I was currently living. One was a Muruga temple and the second a Krishna temple. He told me to visit both of this temples. Even I did not know that there is a Krishna temple in this City. I was searching for this Krishna temple. I found an Afghan Hindu temple with a shrine for Krishna. I was wondering how correct and accurate the Jeeva Nadi is. I am living in Germany and the Skandar Upasagar in Tamil Nadu. There is several thousand kilometers distance but still the Nadi is exact. 

Muruga mentioned about some health troubles with my stomach I have to face. As it was predicted I had some problems with my stomach for a few weeks. 
In the Jeeva Nadi it was told that I had several pictures of the Siddhas and that I have to pray to them regularly. It was also mentioned that Agasthiyar is my Guru and that my Kundalini will awake. I have to chant the Shanmuga Kavasam for 36 Days and that everything will be set alright. In a few weeks I will get the next reading so I have to be patient. 
In the next reading I got several new amazing revelation and exact prediction about my new Job...
We shall hear more from this devotee soon.

See too.

When one comes for a reading of the Nadi, he would be told that that was the precise moment the Nadi was to be read for him, no sooner nor later. The Siddhas speak about the time and the place. Everything has a time and place. The Siddhas speak about karma that governs every aspect of an individuals life till determining the very moment one would come for a reading. My Tour Agent had taken many to the famed Vaitheeswaran temple for a reading but never found the need to see his at this temple all these years. Only some years back he was prompted by his wife to see Nadi Guru Ramesh for a reading in Malaysia. 

The very first revelation after locating one's Nadi would be about one's past life where his or her karma would be mentioned. Knowing one's karma will make one better understand why and how he or she is living the present life, be it one of happiness and harmonious with nature or miserable and in disharmony.

A proper understanding of karma is necessary too, so that remedial actions could be taken to make good the improper deeds committed earlier. Many atonements are given to be fulfilled by the individual. These would involve making contributions and conducting prayers among others. One has to be pleased that an opportunity has been given to at least undo one's past wrongs. With this attitude in mind, if he or she undertakes making donations and conducting prayers, it would help ease one's sufferings.

But these acts of charities has to be done regularly as we tend to accumulate more karmas day by day. The most simplest forms of actions that help disperse and eradicate or lessen the effect of karma are as follows. These needs might differ from person to person. Generally,
  1. The very first atonement would be to start a prayer to the Siddhas thanking them for having spoken through the Nadi. A small donation might be required. This is Nadikku Dhanam, a contribution that goes towards the upkeep and survival of the Nadi Nool Aasan or Nadi Guru, provided for by Agathiyar. After the prayers to the Siddhas one can be assured that he or she has now come under the perview and watchful eyes of the Siddhas. When Agathiyar told me to present a small donation to the Nadi Guru, I did as told without question. A small but simple prayer was conducted, led by the Nadi Guru as a form of thanksgiving for taking me in onto their path. Many are also asked to perform prayers in their own homes too. I was asked to come to the fold of the Siddhas too. My very first Nadi Guru Sentilkumar of Avinashi initiated me into reciting the names of the Siddhas, which I continue till this day. With a portrait of Agathiyar given to me on the same day by Sivabalan, I started my worship of the Siddhas in 2002. Later in 2010 Agathiyar came into my home in the form of a bronze statue, made to certain specifications as dictated by Agathiyar himself through the Nadi. With his statue gracing our home, Agathiyar started us performing libation or abhisegam to him. Slowly a homam or lighting the sacrificial fire pit was included too. Agathiyar says that karma can be removed by performing Yagam and Homam. Today we conduct the homam, libation, and prayers conducted without fail every Thursdays, Pournami and Amavasai days. The prayers are being streamed live on these days, as encouraged by Agathiyar.
  2. The next thing required of one would be to carry out doing dharma and charity, which could be in many forms, the most simplest form being feeding the birds that stop by at one's home. When Agathiyar asked that I feed "pulligal" that meant birds, literally we had birds with spots on their chest, appear mysteriously at our home. Later many other species turned up too. The feeding continues till this day. 
  3. One might also need to make donations and conduct charity at specific temples. I was required to make donations to several priests at temples and feed people, which again I did without question. 
  4. One would be asked to visit numerous temples to pray for a panacea to all their ills and sufferings. I started on a pilgrimage a year after the reading and successfully covered all the temples mentioned with Erai's grace. Agathiyar was extremely pleased with the pilgrimage.
By being generous and grateful and with the grace of Erai and the Siddhas one sails the river of karma safely.

Saravanan Palanisamy has beautifully summarized karma and the way and means to come out of it in the following prose.

Birth is the fruit of the tree of Karma,
The seed you sowed becomes the present birth,
If you had not sowed the seed would there be a rebirth?,
Seek out Kumban (Agathiyar) for a way or path to break the cycle of birth.

Thus Agathiyar spoke of the ways to end Karma,
Carry out his magnificent Siddhar Puja,
If you forget not to perform Dharma together with Puja,
Karma will evade you and visions shall one gain.

Karma shall foil your very efforts to end Karma itself,
Catch hold of Kumban's feet firmly,
If you are fully satisfied upon having reached Agathiyar's feet,
Its a promise that Pothigai Muni (Agathiyar) will come to envelope you.

Is a Guru necessary? Can’t one find his own way to God and God realization? 

The need for a guru is expressly mentioned in a discourse between God and his servant. When Namdev felt insulted while in the midst of many others, he ran to his Lord to put forth his sadness. Gora had termed Namdev as raw and unbaked earlier, hence having shamed him in the company of many others. This angered Namdev. Namdev and Lord Narayana had a very unique relationship. For Namdev the statue of Lord Narayana that he worshiped came to live. Sulking in front of his Lord, Namdev was disappointed further. To his disappointment, Lord Narayana agreed that what was said at the assembly of great beings of Pandharpur was true. He added that one who is not a disciple of a guru is always spoken of as unripe. Namdev was taken aback by his Lord's appraisal of him as unripe too. He broke down further.

Lord Narayana began to console him telling him that his heart and that of Namdev were one and that there was no duality between them. He requests Namdev to go to a guru, explaining that without the blessing of the guru the sense of duality between god and devotee will never come to an end.

Namdev questioned his Lord, "Why do I need a guru when I have you?" Lord Narayana replies that when he incarnated as Rama he too went to Vashista to gain knowledge on Advaita Vedanta and Yoga. He seeked explanation on the illusory nature of the manifest world and the principle of non-duality.

As Krishna he went to his guru Sandipani Muni.

Hence citing that everyone needs a guru, Lord Narayana further directs Namdev to Jnaneshwar's disciple, Vishoba Khecha to receive further instruction.

Namdev, depressed and saddened makes his way as directed by his Lord to the Shiva temple wherein resides Vishoba. Namdev was in for another surprise as he opened the doors to the temple. Vishoba was fast asleep with both his feet on the Shivalingam! Namdev was angered further for being sent to someone who has the least respect for God. Namdev takes to task Vishoba for insulting God. Vishoba wakes up and grins. He admits that he had made a mistake and request Namdev to help him. Vishoba puts forth his request, "I am so old I cannot move. Please pick up my feet and place them where Shiva is not." Namdev did as told. He picked up both the feet of Vishoba, moved them slightly away from the Shivalinga. As he placed Vishoba's feet on the ground there arose a Shivalinga from the ground. Namdev was taken aback. He then picked up Vishoba's feet again and moved them to yet another spot. Another Shivalingam sprung up from the ground. And so to his surprise wherever Namdev placed Vishoba's feet a Shivalingam materialized. Namdev was bewildered and astonished. Tears streamed down his cheeks. He kept holding on to Vishoba's feet.

Finally Vishoba spoke again, "My son please put down my feet". Namdev refused to let go of his feet. Namdev told him, "Where am I to place your feet for wherever I put them down there I see Shiva. You have made me realize that Shiva is everywhere. Namdev surrendered to his new found guru Vishoba. Vishoba placed his hand on Namdev's head and Namdev immediately went into a state of samadhi. Namdev saw in his heart Vishoba was indeed Lord Narayana, that his guru and his beloved Lord were one. He realized that there was no difference between God and himself. He realized that his Lord was beyond the idol and images in the temple and was now all pervasive. Namdev experienced Gods presence in all.

The above tale of Namdev is based from a story posted at

Another similar tale is told of a disciple and his guru. This tale has been posted numerous times on Siddha Heartbeat but its a tale worth telling again and again.

Once when Guru Namashivayar was fanning his master, he began to hit his side with his hands. The master asked his student what he was doing. Guru Namashivayar replied that he was putting off the fire that was engulfing the curtain at Chidambaram (temple). On another occasion the senior Namashivayar told his student to dispose off his vomit in a place where no one would step on it. Guru Namashivayar figuring that there was no safe place, drank his master's vomit. When he returned, his guru asked him where he disposed the vomit. Guru Namashivayar pointed to his stomach. When Guhai Namashivayar realized that his disciple Guru Namashivayar had himself attained a status at par with him, that of a guru, he had him leave Thiruvannamalai for Chidambaram. But the junior Namashivayar refused to budge. He instead pleaded to his master to reverse his directive, allow him to continue staying with him, having a daily darshan of him and serving him forever. Realizing that Guru Namasivaya was very much attached to the physical form of his, Guhai Namashivayar told him, "If the Lord there gives you darshan even as I do myself, stay there. If not, come back here." Only after hearing this from his guru, Guru Namashivayar agreed to leave for Chidambaram. True to his guru's words when Guru Namashivayar arrived at Chidambaram temple, he saw his master's form in the Shivalingam and remained at the temple henceforth.

A young lad stood in front of the Jeeva Nadi Guru hoping for a solution to his dilemma. He had accumulated excessive debts. The lad was employed as an Engineer with a software company. His monthly salary was just sufficient to service the interest on these debts. He seeked Agathiyar and the Nadi for a way out of his financial problem. 

When asked how he had landed in this mess, he said he had a desire to amass property and money since young. He had succumbed to a scamp by a foreign company that promised him a very large amount of money. Upon responding to the offer, a man and a woman approached him, showing a cheque for the promised amount made out to the lad's name. But there was a condition laid on him. He had to come up with a certain amount upfront before the cheque would be delivered to him. They promised to return that amount too.

As he had to come up with the said amount of money in a week's time, the lad convinced his parents and brother to sell all their jewellery and their land. As it was yet insufficient, he sold his father's house too. He then borrowed money too. All these was not sufficient. After a week he had yet to come up with the said amount. He then met the couple. As he could not gather the required amount they gave him a grace period of another 10 days, taking the amount that he already had on hand. Eventually after a month he managed to trade off the balance with the cheque. When he deposited the cheque into his account the cheque bounced back. He realized the cheque was a dummy and it was all a hoax and the company did not exist. Realizing he had been tricked he tried to commit suicide twice. But he survived both attempts. 

The Jeeva Nadi Guru asked Agathiyar for guidance through the Jeeva Nadi. Agathiyar gave the lad a piece of his mind.

"This lad due to his desires took the shortcut to richness by adopting a wrong path. He should have consulted with others before taking this move. Agathiyar refuses to acknowledge this weakness on his part as fate or destiny. His greed is the reason his family and he are in this mess. His younger brother had to leave the home because he could not face the shame brought on by his brother. He is supposed to have committed suicide too, according to the villagers, right?" Agathiyar reveals further. His parents too will eventually end up with the decision to end their life's, unable to stomach the shame. But the most compassionate Agathiyar says his parents should not be penalized for his mistakes, and decides to to help them. Agathiyar shows him a way out of his financial problem.

Agathiyar directs him and his parents to go on a pilgrimage of all the six abodes of Lord Muruga. Agathiyar assures him that during this journey of his, a miraculous incident will take place. The lad was asked to return to Agathiyar once he was back from the pilgrimage.

But the lad said he had no more money on him, even to go on the pilgrimage, much more take his parents along. The Jeeva Nadi Guru assured the lad to have faith on Agathiyar and he shall show the means and a way. 

After two months the lad appeared again as instructed. He told the Jeeva Nadi Guru that he had just returned from the pilgrimage the day before. He disclosed what had taken place during the pilgrimage. Before starting on the pilgrimage, as he needed money to travel with his parents, and since no one came to his assistance, he prayed at the Vadapalani Murugan Temple in Chennai for guidance. Thats when he passed out. On opening his eyes he saw a bag near him. Inside the small bag was jewellery. As no one claimed it, he thought it was Lord Murugan's answer to his prayer and took possession of it. He pawned it for cash and made the pilgrimage, promising to redeem and return the jewellery to the donation box at the temple once his woes were over. At the last leg of his pilgrimage a very wealthy stranger came up to his parents and asked if the lad would marry his daughter. The stranger explained that as his daughter was a victim of polio, no one wanted to marry her. The lad agreed. He had settled all his debts and was now living a satisfied life. He was seeking Agathiyar's advise if the decision he made was right. Agathiyar in the Nadi blessed him.

Agathiyar scans through every person's past to reveal them and then suggests ways and means to make right his/her wrong doings, offering a way out of the predicament they are in and offering an opportunity to change for the better. These are the ever compassionate Sidhas. This revelation by Agathiyar posted on Siththan Arul by Velayudham Karthikeyan Aiya, the original in Tamil, serves to warn and caution us about greed and its repercussions too.

In another revelation, the blind gets Erai’s Darshan. The most compassionate father, Agathiyar arranges for a blind lad to see Erai.

A 22 year old lad walked all the way from Karnataka to Chennai, seeking Agathiyar’s blessing to make a pilgrimage to Nepal, Badrinath, Mukthinath and to bath in the holy waters. Agathiyar blessed him mentioning that all that he wished for will materialize. He added that exactly 45 days from then the lad would receive a flute. He shall learn to play the flute and with Goddess Saraswathi’s blessing he will master the flute and make a living playing tunes. After a year he shall have sufficient money to take the train to fulfill his wishes. Agathiyar added that he will receive Erai's Darshan on the banks of the Kandagi river in Nepal in the early morning hours of a Thursday. Agathiyar assured him that he will be with the lad and after the Darshan his life will change for good.

After 2 years 4 months the lad came back to the Jeeva Nadi Guru. He reveals what had taken place during that time. While sleeping on the platform a young girl woke him up and placed a flute in his hands. She blessed him that he will master the flute in nine days and left immediately. The lad felt the presence of someone guiding him to play the flute. He put much effort into the practice as he was instructed mysteriously. As he was wondering who could be the one guiding him he saw a luminous figure that fitted the description of Agathiyar. The Muni was short with dark beard, fair skin, a drinking vessel or kamandalam in his hand, and hair tied up neatly. The Muni spoke, mentioning that he was the one who tutored him. The lad believes it was Agathiyar himself. Then he ask the Muni, “Who had given the flute to him?” “Saraswathy,” answered the Muni. The lad said he had never seen the image of Agathiyan or Goddess Saraswathy as he was blind since birth. The lad added that he was blessed to have had the Darshan of Erai while bathing in the Kandagi river in Nepal.

In another episode from NADI SOLLUM KATHAIGAL, the ever compassionate Siddhas stage a play whereby mankind benefits.

“I make much money but can’t seem to keep some aside. All I earn is spent on medical expenses and purchasing medicine. Only Agathiyar can save my family,” with these words a man stood before Hanumathdasan.

“What are your medical problems,” questions the Jeeva Nadi Guru.

He began listing them out. “My mother’s kidney has failed. My father has diabetes. My eldest son has an eye problem. My daughter has asthma. My third child has a growth on her neck.”

He asked to see Agathiyar’s Jeeva Nadi for a single medicine that would cure all these problems; the medicine should not cost much and be affordable. His request surprised the Jeeva Nadi Guru.

“Could there be a single solution to all these people’s illnesses?”, wondered the Jeeva Nadi Guru.

But the man insisted that Agathiyar would help him as his family worshipped Agathiyar.

When the Jeeva Nadi Guru ask if he had looked into other options like Sidha medicine and astrology, he mentions he had seen them all but yet he could not find a solution and a way out of his karma.

In the Nadi, Agathiyar directs him to Bhogar, Korakar and Tirumular as they have attain a high standing in the medical field.

The man replies that he had seen Korakar’s Nadi. He had done a yagam with the aid of Tirumular’s chakra. But there was only slight improvement. These Nadi’s mentioned that all the relevant solutions were in Agathiyar’s Nadi.

He continued with another requests, that astonished the Jeeva Nadi Guru again. He said his aunt has had one of her breast removed due to cancer and wanted Agathiyar to replace it. Seeing that his request had angered the Jeeva Nadi Guru, he was willing to drop his last requests. But he insisted Agathiyar reveal one medicine for all the illnesses mentioned earlier.

Agathiyar now reveals that the man who stood before the Jeeva Nadi Guru was Kollimalai Siddhan. Agathiyan reveals that Kollimalai Siddhan and he go back five generations. He had been under Agathiyar’s tutelage learning medicine from him. Agathiyar had made a promise to him in the last birth and he had come to claim it. “I shall reveal 128 herbs to be made as a herbal preparation for the good of mankind. The Jeeva Nadi Guru corporated with Agathiyar by not disclosing what had been mentioned in the Nadi, instead ask the man to jot down all the names of the herbs that are mentioned by Agathiyar. As Agathiyar mentioned the names the man noted it down. Agathiyar mentioned the proportions and how it should be prepared and consumed. He mentioned that it was a wonder drug for all illnesses.

The man thanked Agathiyan and asked to be excused for a moment. He left the note and walked out never to return.

When the Jeeva Nadi Guru seeked Agathiyar for answers to the weird game that was played before him, Agathiyar replied that this is their play or Thiruvilaiyaadal for the benefit of mankind.

In another episode Agathiyar seeks the home of a man to relieve him of his miseries.

Agathiyar out of the blues, in a rare act, instructs the Jeeva Nadi Guru to pass the Jeeva Nadi that was in the Jeeva Nadi Guru's possession to one Ramamurthy in Mylapore, Chennai, to be kept for three days at his home. There were times in the past where Agathiyar had wanted the Nadi to be place at certain temples for a short period, but never before had he instructed to pass it to another individual. The Jeeva Nadi Guru was instructed to leave for Kabhaleeswarar temple immediately. He was ask to sit at a particular spot and facing a particular direction at the temple. Agathiyar mentioned how to identify Ramamurthy. Just as told Ramamurthy came along. The Jeeva Nadi Guru after confirming it was him passed the Nadi to Ramamurthy. 

Ramamurthy asked the Jeeva Nadi Guru to read from the Nadi, with disinterest and without any concern at all. Agathiyar instructed Ramamurthy to keep the Nadi in his prayer room at home for three days and to worship it. He was to conduct a yagam too. “It is very necessary and has to happen immediate too”, stressed Agathiyar to him with an urgency. But Ramamurthy started giving reasons, not to except the Nadi. “I have to leave for my village,” he started. Agathiyar replied that he could take it along with him and added that for whatever reason he had to leave for his village, the task shall take place even without him leaving his home, the same night. Then Ramamurthy came up with another excuse that he had a prior engagement and that he had accepted to perform a Chandi Homam. Agathiyar spells out the Chandi Homam Ramamurthy had planned to hold at his home would not take place. After a moment of thought, Ramamurthy started giving more excuses. He had a mother who was battling with life and a daughter who had separated from the husband at his home. He had a son who disliked him performing Homam at home. As hiis son was an atheist, he feared that he might destroy the given Nadi. Agathiyar refused to speak through the Nadi any further. The Jeeva Nadi Guru forcefully handed the Nadi to the priest having arranged to meet him at the same spot in three days time. Ramamurthy reluctantly took the Nadi as the Nadi Guru left. 

The Jeeva Nadi Guru was wandering why Agathiyar had wanted to pass the Nadi to Ramamurthy, a non-believer and a difficult character in the first place. Although disappointed that he had to part with the Nadi and then to someone like Ramamurthy who did not appreciate or value the Jeeva Nadi, the Jeeva Nadi Guru reassured himself that there was always a reason behind Agathiyar’s actions. Now that the nadi was not with him, the Jeeva Nadi Guru decided to leave for Tirupathy. There he accidently met Ramamurthy. Ramamurthy on seeing the Jeeva Nadi Guru fell at his feet. Ramamurthy, after gathering himself up and composing himself, reveals that if it was not for Agathiyar’s Nadi he would not be alive that day. Ramamurthy goes on to explain that he had come to Tirupathy by car to perform the Kalyana Ursavam as atonement for his daughter who was separated. After one of the tire the car he traveled in burst and the car went out of control, hitting a light posts, it had burst into flames. By Agathiyar’s grace his family survived the crash and flames. They managed to perform the Kalyana Ursavam and were on their way out. 

The priests was in the midst of performing the Chandi Homam earlier, before leaving home for Tirupathy, when a fire broke out due to a short circuit where the wires caught fire. Yet again Agathiyar saved them.

On the third day as arranged the Jeeva Nadi Guru was back at the Kabhaleeswarar temple to collect the Nadi from Ramamurthy. With Ramamurthy was his 40 year old son, Manikanden. His son was a loafer but there was a drastic change in him now, mentions Ramamurthy. Manikanden fell at the Jeeva Nadi Guru’s feet and professed that from that moment onwards Agathiyar was his guru. Ramamurthy's mother who was bed ridden could now walk too. He reveled at the doings of Agathiyar. He wept in joy saying that he and his family were indebted to Agathiyar forever. Only today he saw the light of the day after having suffered for the past 40 years. 

The Jeeva Nadi Guru had so many questions that Agathiyar had to answer. He read the Nadi at that spot. Agathiyar reveals that Ramamurthy was his devotee in the last birth. He had done much service to Agathiyar, but due to his past karma he had taken this birth and had gone through hell. Although faced with all kinds of torture and sufferings yet he kept chanting Lord Shiva’s mantra. Agathiyar reveals that he had been at Ramamurthy’s home chanting so that Ramamurthy’s mother should live longer. Lord Dhanvantri eventually submitted to Agathiyar’s plea and his mother was saved. She shall leave another 14 years to a ripe old age, disclosed Agathiyar.

Agathiyar adds that this was the first time he (Agathiyar) had gone to the home of a mortal to chant and seek that their lifespan should be extended. Agathiyar says she deserves it for she had prayed hard. Although fate had planned that Ramamurthy should lose his life while on the way to perform the Kalyana Ursavam, Agathiyar had to step in, otherwise the Jeeva Nadi too would have been lost forever. Agathiyar went further to reveal that he had brought the very much sought out change in Ramamurthy’s son too. Agathiyar worked on Ramamurthy's son-in-law too. “He will be a changed person in three months time,” assured Agathiyar.

Agathiyar assures in the Nadi that in the future he (Agathiyar) will settle in many homes and help humanity cope with their problems.
