Om Ganeshaya Namaha
O Agasthiya Muni, let thy grace fall on us always!
When Shri Karthikeyan started Siththan Arul series in Tamil, it gained so much of popularity that we started looking forward to Thursdays, when it’s gets published. For many of us, reading that post topped the task list for the day. Reason? Simple. It contains truth. It contains divinity. It contains simplicity. It is the narration of a person who devoted his life towards Siththar Agasthiyar’s Nadi that bestowed His grace to people who were in need, people who were desperate, more so to people who had faith and were deserving. All the great truths of the world are simple, but they are profound. This series is no exception. Plus, it fills the heart with so much of awe that it happened here in our time, just recently!
The incidents are full of thrills, suspense and turn of events that gives goose pimples. However, we feel the protective warmth from the Maha Muni Agasthiyar whilst reading them and so it is very comforting. It is like He talks to you directly. The series in Tamil, the oldest language known to mankind, combined with the extraordinary narrating skills of Shri Karthikeyan puts us right there in the scene, beautifully.
And there was this feeling that our beloved readers who are yet to learn Tamil were not able to enjoy this “must read” posts. Though reading them in Tamil is the most wonderful experience one can get, we have tried our best to give these series in simple English. We earnestly pray to the Sage to bless us with all that is required to take this up, continue and complete. Om.
Siththan Arul – 1
Many know about Naadi. There are countless wonders in Tamil Nadu and Naadi is definitely one of them. These are written by Siddhas for the mankind to know about their past or future, only accurately. It is so wonderful that many a people followed the revelations and remedies that came out of Naadi to solve the issues they faced and to know more about themselves.
Who are these Siddhas?
The term Siddha came from the word Siddhi, meaning – enlightenment, paranormal power etc. Those who possesses this are Siddhas. They are aware of the trikala aka past, present and the future. They are Jnanis. Just like a CEO has secretaries, they are the prophets of God. A lot many people, in spite of their earnest prayers to God that did not bore fruits for reasons known only to the Almighty, prayed to these Siddhas and benefited through them. We do not know if any such thing happens anywhere in the world. May be it is the Almighty’s will to bestow His grace through these Siddhas.
What is a Naadi?
The Siddhas requested God once that whoever searches for them, surrenders to them, however cruel or crooks they might have been in their previous births, should be saved by God in this birth. God accepted their request. The Siddhas at once wrote solutions to many a types of problems in palm leaves, called beautifully as Olai Suvadi in Tamil. They wrote them in literature Tamil. Such Olai Suvadi’s are called as Naadi. There is a thumb-rule though. If one has a problem, then one must surrender to the Siddhas. They won’t be searching for those in trouble. Jeeva Naadi literally can mean that it is the Naadi with life.
Now let’s see some incidents.
This wise man has devoted his life for the welfare of mankind. He was blessed with the Jeeva Naadi, the olai suvadi and the responsibility of reading Naadi. He used to read out from the Naadi to those who approach him with such a request. Let us see the incidents from his narrations itself.
It was about 9 in the morning, a Friday. I came out after having completed my regular worship of Sage Agasthiyar. There stood a young couple at my door, tensed yet pitiful. I called them in and asked,
“What’s the matter?”
“We want to see the Naadi” – seeing Naadi means they want to know what Naadi has to say for them.
“Regarding?” I asked.
“The Sage Agasthiya knows why! Please could you read the Naadi without refusal?” – the couple said.
“The Naadi I have is Jeeva Naadi. It cannot be read just like that. I will first seek the approval from Agasthiya. I will read if he wills” – I said, while checking the calendar as the Sage does not bestow clairvoyance on Ashtami, Navami thidhi, and on days of Karthigai (Krithika), Barani stars. I mentioned this thidhi details to them saying “Today, Agasthiya won’t give any clairvoyance and even if I read, I am not sure if there will be anything good that will come out. So, I can read if you come after two days” – trying to pacify them.
The couple were almost on tears. “It is far away where we came from and it’s not feasible to return. We somehow have to get a reply from Agathiyar. We believe he wouldn’t say anything wrong for He only can remove our grievance.”
When I said “I understand your position. Possibly you can see anyone else who reads Naadi?”, they said adamantly “no no, it is through you that we have to see the Naadi“.
Jeeva Naadi is not like any other Naadi. Sage Agathiyar’s consent is a must to read it. Events of things not working out as it should when Naadi was read in these Thidhis were many. It’s ok if something did not go right. Worse fear is, what if the straight opposite happens? But I thought there must be something as they were insisting me on reading Naadi, so I thought “Alright. Let’s pray to Agathiyar. Let him bless them if they have the bhagyam (blessing)” I opened the Naadi and read.
“You want to ask about your daugher who is missing from the past two days, isn’t it so?” – I asked them based on what I read in the Naadi.
They burst out crying.
“Yes! Where is the child now? When will we get her? Is she alive?” they asked eagerly.
“The child is alive indeed” – their face reflected the grievance lessened at once. “No issues on the life span of the child. If you want her back, you must visit
Thirupathi within 8 hours!” – I said.
“What?! They took our child to Thirupathi? Where will we search going there?” – the parents lamented with worry.
“If you take a bus from here, its 4 hours. From there if you walk towards path to ascend the Hill, Muzhangal Mudichu Gopuram comes. Your child is there in a corner of that Gopuram. The person who took your child will stay at Thirupathi for 2 days. Within that you can save her with the help of the police.” – I narrated the couple what Sage Agasthiyar explained in detail in Jeeva Naadi!
“We shall go at once!”
“Why kidnap their kid? Who is he? Probably an issue with property” – I thought. But it wasn’t the truth.
Agasthiyar said in the Naadi “He was told by someone that if he sacrifices the child to Badra Kali, he will get treasure. So to seize the treasure, this sinner has committed such a brutal act“. The couple does not know why their kid was kidnapped. Agasthiyar has shown them good on an Ashtami day, for the first time, I thought.
I received a shocking information in the evening!
