Hello Dear Tweeples,

Today, am gonna share about a Siddhar, who with his Siddhis, foresaw the pain human race will feel in future and sought to find a solution.

Bogar Siddhar comes from a well-respected and reputed Guru-Shishya parampara. @HelloNNewman
He’s said to be Shisya of Kālāngināthar Siddhar, who is Shishya of Siddhar Thirumoolar. There are many different stories regarding the origin of Bogar Siddhar. While some stories describe Bogar Siddhar as a wanderer from China who reached South India and settled here after +
learning & attaining Siddhas. Other stories narrate that it is his Guru Kālāngināthar, who’s from China and settled down in South India. And to fulfil his Guru’s last wishes, Bogar Siddhar travelled to China to spread the knowledge about Siddhas & later came back to India. @shri_v
Bogar’s works in Siddha Medicine System is unparalleled and he became the epicenter for Alchemy, Siddha Medicine, Siddha yoga and gnana philosophies. Though, there are much that could be shared and learned about Bogar Siddhar, am gonna restrict this thread to Bogar Siddhars most+
+ profilic contribution to Siddha medicine and his everlasting gift to humankind.

As mentioned earlier, Bogar Siddhar foresaw suffering of humankind and sought to find a remedy for the same.

Bogar Siddhar was an expert alchemist and he used his knowledge to create a VigrahA of Bhagwan Muruga out of ‘Navapashanam’ (nine poisons).

Navapashanam – a Siddha Medicine of high quality obtained by using very complex herbal and mineral ingredients and processing them at +
+ various stages with extracts of rare herbs to kill the toxicity of base metal compounds and converted to a form, which will be easily assimilated by human body to get rid of all chronic ailments. The nine poisons are as follows:


Gauri Pasanam
Vellai Pasanam

Bogar Siddhar after consulting Siddhar Agasthiar and other Siddhars, succeeded in creating a VigrahA of Bhagwan Muruga.

@harshasherni @DeepaShree_AB @hathyogi31 @Sanskritii_1 @Itishree001
The VigrahA is created in such manner that even now, the medicinal property is extracted from VigrahA by doing Milk Abhishekam and Panchamitram Abhishekam. This is really amazing and unbelievable. Amazing, because he created medicine out of poisons.

And unbelievable because the medicine is still available for general consumption.

Bogar Siddhar lived in Palani (a district in TN) with his shishya ‘Pulipani siddhar’, who carried out the tradition of doing Milk and Panchamirtham abhishekam of Bhagwan Muruga’s vigrahA. @mmpandit
After Bogar Siddhar took ‘Nirvikalpa Samadhi’ or ‘Asamprajnata Samadhi’ – the highest form of Samadhi.

There’s an opening at top of Palani hill, a cave like structure. It is believed that Bogar Siddhar used to meditate in this cave.
@wataboutery @RajiIndustani @aparnasridhar7
Bogar Siddhar after realising that his work on this plane is done, entered this cave to attain Samadhi.
