The varma kalai should be practised under the guidance of a guru. All the books that we have got can only serve as information. As it is a traditional art, one can attain mastery in it only after a long practice and correct guidance.
There are only a very few members who are experts in this art. Mostly they are not known to all of them, they just preach it to those who come to them only. Anybody who has learnt from their gurus will never try to advertise about their learning. As told by Agathiyar there are certain prerequisite characteristics to be present with anyone who wants to practice this art.
Agathiyar says about the basic features that one should have sharp mind, understand everything easily, kind hearted to serve others, patience, calmness and should not be short tempered. Also they should practice it with an idea of serving the people for curing their diseases but not practice for harming others.
Except in the situations when some danger occurs to their life, rest of the time they should never use it with a notion to harm others. Even in situation while their life is at risk and they should use it against your opponent and also should try to win the opponent only rather than causing harm to him.
An expert in the varma kalai can definitely make any strong man to lose his strength at some point with this technique. By attacking him at some particular varma points in the body, one can also decide his death date. The death caused in this way will be very horrible and pathetic.
Agathiyar has categorized this into four types
Each one of them are different. In the next post we shall see their details and benefits.
