WHY Citter Koyil
Ancient Sangam Tamil people understood two distinct characteristics of Godhood. God who is beyond all (Tamil: கடவுள், Kaṭavuḷ) and the God who sets things in motion (Tamil: இயவுள், Iyavuḷ).
Tamils has been inhabited for over 10,000 years, and the worship of Civan (simply meaning ‘the Red one’) goes back to very ancient times within the Tamil Culture.
Seers known as Citterrs amongst Tamils have transcended the material planes and bonds of Karma; they have overcome psychological and physical barriers through pure devotion to lord Paramacivan, who caused the light of knowledge to bloom in their consciousness.
The ancient land of of today Tamil Nadu, nestled in the southern part of India, has a rich and diverse cultural heritage. Among the many luminaries that have graced this sacred soil, the Citters hold a unique and enigmatic place. These enlightened sages, believed to have lived thousands of years ago, left behind a legacy of spiritual wisdom, healing practices, and esoteric knowledge that continues to intrigue and captivate the modern world.
The term “Citter” means perfection or achievement. Ancient Tamil Citters were revered spiritual adepts and alchemists who achieved a state of profound enlightenment and mastery over various forms of knowledge. Their knowledge encompassed medicine, yoga, alchemy, astrology, and spirituality, making them the equivalent of Renaissance polymaths in the ancient Tamil region.
