சித்தர் பாடல்கள்: Poets of the Powers

About

Who Sivavakkiyar was and where he hailed from, nobody knows.  It is generally accepted that he has been given the name Sivavakkiyar based on the poems that he has left behind.   Sivavakkiyar is considered as one of the numerous siddhars (or Shaivite ascetics) of South India.  The period in which he lived is unknown.

This is an attempt to share some of the works of this siddhar in English.  Translating the words of a saint who is speaking about his inner experience is not an easy task, especially when Yogic tradition maintains that this should be treated with all the rigor due to a science.   We will attempt to stick to the literal translation as closely as possible.  Please feel free to leave your comments on the translated verses.

We thank you for your interest in Sivavakkiyar and welcome your inputs for this website.
