Agastya Nadi Astrology in Vaitheeswaran Koil
A well-known Vedic sage by the names of Sri Agastya, Agathiar, Agastyar, Agasti, and Agastiar. It is said that Sage Agastya contributed to the Vedic religion’s dissemination throughout southern India. Agastya is also acknowledged as one of the Seven Great Sages (Saptarishis). The four Vedas of Hinduism have also benefited greatly from the contributions of Sage Agasthiyar. Sage Agasthiyar received these mantras from the Absolute Being, the Brahman. Agastya also reigns as the Siddha king. Another name for him is Kurumuni, which translates to “short saint” (kuru). He made his greatest contributions to medicine and astrology, notably Nadi astrology (Jyotish, Jodhidam, Josyam, or Jothisyam) (Siddha).
Boopathi Kuligai, one of Maharishi Sri Agastya’s medicinal concoctions, is claimed to be so effective that it has the power to even resurrect the dead. He is supposed to be immortal and to have lived on Earth for more than 5000 years. He had two students and adherents at Therayar and Tholkappiar. He is also said to be the guru of many other Siddhars.
