What is Siddha?

The Siddha system of medicine, one of the seven Ayush systems, is a venerable, conventional medical system that has its roots in South Tamil Nadu. It is thought to be one of Tamil Nadu’s earliest known medical systems, and it is based on a mix of spiritual disciplines and antiquated medical procedures.

The word “Siddha” means “accomplishments,” and Siddhars—those who defeated death—preached the Siddha medical philosophy and the theory of immortality and had perfected the practice of medicine. It is stated that 18 Siddhars, who recorded their experiences in Tamil, contributed to the systematic development of this system. The father of Siddha medicine is Agathiyar, one of the eighteen Siddhars. Although it is mostly practiced in the southern region of India, its significance and influence have expanded abroad.
