In the view of Siththars, the mantras are nothing but the vibrations that are present in the sound. Anybody can practice and get benefits out of it. Under the guidance of the right guru anyone can learn them. This can be used for both good and bad purposes. These Siththars having realised about all these, they have maintained them so secretly.
Though they were so careful these mantras somehow were found into the hands of the evil people thereby now common people are feared and do not trust all these mantras. Even today most of them cheat people telling that they are the representatives of the Siththars and the angels who bless with boons are under their control. We have been seeing such people who cheat people with money by saying all these fake stories.
Having realised about all these Karuvoorar has already told in the beginning of his book "Attaamasiththu" about how to identify such fake witcheries.
"வணங்கு வாயுலகினிலே மாந்திரீகர்
vanangu vaayulakinilae maanthireegar
மகிதலமும் என்வசமே என்று சொல்வார்
makithalamum envasamae enru solvaar
kanangalellaam enthanukkuch siththiyenpaar
கண்ணதனில் கண்டேனே தெய்வமென்பார்
kannathanil kandaen theivamenbaar
குணமான வக்கிரத்தின் மாறெல்லாம்
gunamaana vakkiraththin maarellaam
குறிகண்டு மாறுவோரென்று சொல்வார்
kurikandu maaruvoarenru solvaar
இணங்காதே கோடிகோடி உருவே செய்தொம்
inangaathae koadikoadi uruvae seythom
என்றல்லோ வெடுத்துரைப்பார் மட்டிமாடே
enralloa veduththuraippaar mattimaadae"
- கருவூரார் (Karuvoorar)
The mantras which has to be used for the good purposes are used for controlling the people and grabbing money from them, mesmerising women. This is a very sorrowful thing. This is the reason why the Siththars did not spread about it to all the people, rather they shared only with the trust worthy disciples.
Mantras are also a kind of formulas in mathematics. Rather than considering it as a blind belief and keeping it aside if we consider it and make researches over them, then we can get to know about many other surprising things hidden. There are many things hidden in the mantras that could make favour to the people.
Everybody who have senses can create the mantras but the point of attaining success lies in the way we put it into action. The method where we use the mantras in a correct way and putting them into action is called as sorcery or witchery.
The Siththars have categorized the mantras into eight types based on their features. Also they have mentioned about the features one should possess while handling these mantras.
We shall see those details in the next post.
