Silambam is a weapon-based Indian martial art originating in modern-day Tamil Nadu in the Indian subcontinent and is estimated to have originated in approximately BCE. Oral folklore traces Silambam back several thousand years to the siddhar enlightened sage Agastya. While on his way to Vellimalai , Agastya discussed Hindu philosophy with an old man he met, said to be the god Murugan in disguise. The old man taught him of kundalini yoga and how to focus prana through the body's nadi channels. Agastya practiced this method of meditation and eventually compiled three texts on palm leaves based on the god's teachings.
