About Marma (Varmam) /

Secrets knowledge of Traditional Vaidya's & Kalari Masters

The first exposition of Marma (varmam) knowledge

While Lord Shiva and Devi Parvathy were roaming about in the jungle they saw a tribal man falling from a tree. The fall was very grievous and the man lay unconscious. Lord Shiva continued his journey pretending that he did not see this. Then devi Parvathi entreated him not leave the poor man this way. Shiva said there are two types of vital points in the body, called varmam (deadly point) and adangal. With the stick in his hand Shiva hit the adangal (anti vital) point and the man regain the consciousness and sat up.With the stick in his hand Shiva hit the adangal (anti vital) point and the man regain the consciousness and sat up.

Reaching back to kailas, Parvathy expressed her curiosity to know the basics of this art. Shiva settled down happily and explained this science in detail. Parvathy, in due course pass this learning on to son Lord Muruga. Sage Agasthya got this knowledge from Lord Muruga. From Agasthya this knowledge was passed down to disciples, generation after generation.

To preserve the purity and efficacy and secrecy of this system even while this was written up it was made into two parts - nool (book) and thuravu nool (key book). The science become complete only with these two parts put together. One who know the first part knows only the varmam position and their effects. But the release technique will be in the thuravu nool (key book).

Marma & Adangal

According to Agasthya’s theory there are 108 marma / varmam (vital) points and 51 adangal (anti vital) points in human body. Whereas, in Ayurveda, according to its Acharyas such as Charaka, Sushruta and Vakbhata, the number of marma point is 107; and there is no mention about anti-points. Anti-points are points which an adept practitioner can use to bring back a person to normalcy from a life-threatening situation caused by a grievous hit in a marmam, without recourse to any medication worth the name. The masters have given various definitions to marma ; but the siddhas pointed out that marmas are secret energy points in the body and any impact on it can result in disabilities and even death. This makes clear the vital relation between marma and life.

One become unconscious by an impact on varmam because of the bio-chemical reactions in human body. Our ancestors had done extensive absorption and found out and recorded the various changes in that occur in pants and animels during full moon days, solar eclipse and lunar eclipse. Agasthyar describes in his ‘ amrutha kalai njanam ’ the changes that occur in 15 prana points in the human body during the days from new moon to full moon.

Marmas are life centres : Impacts on marma disturb the natural flow of life force that results in unconsciousness. Such impacts if not corrected, will result in physical disability and even untimely death.
