The Siddhar (Tamil: Cittar from Tamil cittu meaning knowledge, singular Citta, from Sanskrit siddha) are saints in India, in Tamil Nadu, who professed and practised an unorthodox type of sādhanā (spiritual practices) to attain liberation. A Siddha obtains yogic powers called Siddhi by constant practice of certain yogic disciplines and tapasya.
