Fundamental Aspect and Basic Concept of Siddha Medicines

Shukla SS, Saraf S, Saraf S.

Abstract
Siddha is one of the ancients medical system in India considered as the mother medicine of
ancient Tamils/Dravidians in South India. The word Siddha means established truth or "one who
is accomplished" and refers to perfected masters who according to Hindu belief have transcended
the ahamkara (ego or Imaker), have subdued their minds to be subservient to their awareness, and
have transformed their bodies composed mainly of dense Rajotama gunas into a different kind
of bodies dominated by sattva. This is usually accomplished only by persistent meditation over
many lifetimes. Siddha System of Medicine is as old as mankind and dominated the civilization
of the southern peninsula of India. There are some people who claim that Ayurveda is the oldest
medical system, but from the research done with the help of available historical data, it is evident
that Siddha system of medicine is much older and has more history than even Ayurveda. Not only
is this medical system the oldest, this is a medical system with lots of specialities; its specialities
far outweigh the Ayurvedic medicine.
