Siddha Literature
Description The people of this World could attain good conscience only by way of faith in God and the same was experienced and preached by the Siddhas. The Siddhas are aware of the loss of faith in God among the people due to various circumstances. So the Siddhas proclaims that the world has the power to create it, the divine attributes, the way of worship, and so on. The Kagapusunda Kaviya explains that “Shakti” appears through something called “Brahmam” and creates Siva and other deities in this World. During the period of destruction, again everything goes into “Shakthi”. All Siddhas says that the God is one and not many. That said divine one is set differently according to period, environment and place. The Siddhas explains in his poems/songs that the fake monks are deceiving the people by pretending them as God and don’t fell prey to the fakes and further the people can worship by performing the four precepts of Sariya, Kriya, Yoga and Gnanam and one can become a God by attaining Gnanan.  This Article explains the above said concepts by quoting the poems of the Siddhas.
