  • Medicine is not merely a science but an art as well.
  • The science of medicine is of fundamental importance to man's well-being and survival.
  • Sage Agasthya is considered the patron saint of the Siddha system of medicine. He authored various texts in Siddha medicine which are available even today.
  • The Siddha system of medicine is the oldest and was derived from the vegetable kingdom.
  • There are two ancient systems of medicine in India SIDDHA- which flourished in the South and AYURVEDHA- which was prevalent in the North.
  • These systems deal not merely with the body of man but also with the inner soul.
  • The art of medicine is based on truth and as such it is a divine art not to be adulterated for the base purposes of money.
  • The word Siddha comes from Siddhi which means an object to be attained or perfection of heavenly bliss.
  • Siddhi generally refers to the Ashtama Siddh i.e. the eight supernatural powers.
  • Those who attained or achieved these powers are known as the siddhars.
