The Siddha Arokia Deham (Kayakalpha)

Siddha Applied Science Institute’s SADK is a very comprehensive health practice that is highly practical for modern people. SADK forms the main training component of SASI’s ICP 2012. This ancient Siddha practice of preserving human body to a point of deathlessness was called Saava Kalai and SADK is a major step into the long process of achieving it. SASI’s has successfully modified this difficult yogic modality into a easy to do and highly effective practice called SADK. SADK shall be the most evolutionary and revolutionary Siddha practice ever designed in the Siddhar art of Deathlessness (Saava Kalai). SADK practice can bring the following outcomes

(1) People without disease will never acquire disease,

(2) People in the initial stages of disease shall be completely cured,

(3) People with heavily damaged internal glands or organs like the pancreas and liver, etc., will stop the degradation of these organs and control the health of the organs within the first 1.5 years of practice, and

(4) If continued for another 1.5 years, they may be able to completely cure their diseased organs. To understand SADK, one must understand the great science of Saava Kalai.


Saava Kalai or the Art of Deathlessness has been the simplest of great achievements of the great Siddha’s. The history of these immortals dates back to the time when the Kumari Kandam existed, a time that is beyond our recorded memory or history. Even today, to a true seeker, the Siddhas present themselves as teachers of their divine arts blessing them with their divine vision, guidance and assistance. As many followers vouch to their immortality, to date very few have achieved such great heights of spirituality. Imagine that the Siddha System we know is just a fragment of their wisdom, a by-product of their profound sadhana, a gift to mankind in their cosmic evolution.

Saava Kalai when broadly classified, comprises of mainly two practices, firstly those that infinitely preserves our body or simply said, the liberation of body (Arokia Deham) and secondly those practices that liberate our mind (Chittam). As we see that these two factors are indivisible and hence highly essential for the liberation of the other. The body and chittam are indivisibly bound by VaSi (prana) that permeates everything. Why is it that this process has come to be so difficult? In Siddha, we reason it to the derangements of Mukkutrams (Tridosha’s).


The mukkutram’s are governed by the panchabootha’s (5 elements) and these panchaboothas constitute our body at the atomic level. All nature is nothing but the various combinations of planets, stars, galaxies and panchabhoothas. These divine elements are the light and life of human being. Sun is our inner soul and Moon is our nectar in brain, Venus is our sense of divine love and beauty and grace; and without the grace of panchabhoothas there is no light and life in human being as well as in the entire universe. These divine elements, planets and panchabhoothas, pour their energy continuously and influence the human being according to their will. Whatever elements present in the Universe are present in human body also.

Sage THIRUMOOLAR calls this as,



This useful and meaningful relation between the cosmic region and human being has been established since creation of the world. Earth joins with water and creates body and air combines with ether and creates life. These two are got combined by fire. The moment the element viz., fire stops functioning, the life departs from the body. Similarly all the 84 lakhs of living beings are created by the earth (Brahma); all are protected by water ie., (Vishnu) and finally all are destroyed by the heat i.e., (Rudran).

In this yuga we take in the panchaboothas predominantly through diet and hence our dependence on food. Food has suvai or flavour that can directly influence the Panchaboothas, and panchaboothas in turn affect the Mukkutram (The three kutrams Vaatam, Pitham and Kapham) and the Mukkutrams in turn affects the seven dhatus.

The panchabhoothas in our food are extracted by the Jatharagni or the digestive fire and the essence thus formed is supplied into the seven dhatus Viz. Saram (plasma), Cheneer (blood), Ooun (muscle), Kozhuppu (fat), Elumbu (bone), Moolai (nerve) and Inthiriyam (semen). Hence Jatharagni plays an important role in the liberation of the body by acting as processing agent. A similar fire exists in the body that plays a role in the liberation of the cittam, it’s called the bhootha agni, which helps in spiritual digestion allows us to transcend the effect of panchabootha’s thus liberating our chittam. A normal human whose primary motive is food will have a dominant jatharagni opposed to the dominant bhootha agni of an ascetic. This forms the principle of ‘you become what you eat’, not only in the body but also in the energy. This is because; ultimately the cittam that you get is from the food that you eat, and you become what you eat.

The suvai or flavour is a tool of destruction when engaged as a means of pleasure, but when properly used suvai’s can initiate many self healing internal mechanisms and restore balance. There are six suvai’s viz. Inippu (Sweet), Pullippu (Sour), Uppu (Salt), Kaippu (Bitter), Kaarppu (Pungent), and Thuvarppu (Astringent) and each of them has a significant connection to the mukkutrams  (tridosha’s). The panchaboothas exert their effect in the form of food cravings viz. healthy cravings and unhealthy cravings. Healthy cravings makes you crave for food with opposite qualities of your aggravated dosha, e.g. Pitta being attracted to sweet or bitter, or vata being attracted to unctuous things etc. But healthy cravings are not found in a majority of the population, but the modern man is ruled by unhealthy cravings because of the principle of ‘like attract like’ in action. We are mostly attracted to those foods that will increase our dosha e.g.  Pitta always wants spicy, oily and fermented things, Vata always wants sprouts, dry foods, kapha always wants cookies, candy chocolate and sweets, and this way, over time, dosha imbalance turns into a disease.


Seemingly simple, but when applied into practice, balancing all the panchaboothas  along with a busy office and family life a majority of humans find it difficult to stay healthy and normal. Saava Kalai or the Art of Deathlessness seems to be far beyond the reach of the common man. Yet  there is something that’s very promising to people from all walks of life, the SADK from Siddha Applied Science Institute. This is unique Siddha kriya, is a practice that lasts for 1.5 years that helps to completely restore the body toward achieving the disease-less body. A simple 30 minute exercise that includes,

  • Vasi Yoga
  • Energetic self massage
  • Self Varmam activation
  • Mudra for panchabootha balancing and detoxification
  • Panchabootha activation through suvai and internal herbals.
  • It also includes an activation process that activates the body’s energy system called “Hiranyaghaba Diksha” which activates the prana and nadis in the body.

A life without any disease until death! This is possible, and there exist many texts on methods and practices to achieve it. SASI gathered all the relevant systems and practices and on divine direction has developed this SADK which is,

  • Applicable for all cultures, races, and geographic locations
  • Applicable to all walks of life, religions, the secular, and spiritual or  non-spiritual
  • Simple and easy to do, but effective
  • Easily adaptable to a modern way of life and also to the changes in environment, food and life styles


This SADK system guarantees the achieving of the disease-less body if practiced consistently for one and a half years. The Siddha Kayakalpa Therapy (SKT) component helps, first cure current body conditions and diseases and then moves the person forward towards the disease-less body (Arokia Dedham).
