Just incase, listen to what Thirumular says:
"§Å¾§Á¡ ¼¡¸Áõ ¦ÁöÂ¡ Á¢¨ÈÅëø
´Ðï º¢ÈôÒõ ¦À¡Ð×¦Áý ÚûÇÉ
¿¡¾ Û¨ÃÂ¢¨Å ¿¡Ê Ä¢Ãñ¼ó¾õ
§À¾Á ¦¾ýÀ÷ ¦ÀÃ¢§Â¡÷ì ¸§À¾§Á."
"The Veda with the Agama is the truth; they are the word of the Lord: these revelations of the Lord are to be studied as the general and the special doctrines; on enquiry they are taken to be different as giving rise to two different sets of conclusions: but to the great ones they are non different." It is in Tirumantiram we first come across the word Siddhantam. In one place, Tirumular says:-
"º¢ò¾¡ó¾ò §¾º£Åý Óò¾¢º¢ò ¾¢ò¾Ä¡ü
º¢ò¾¡ó¾ò §¾¿¢ü§À¡÷ Óò¾¢º¢ò ¾¢ò¾Å÷
º¢ò¾¡ó¾ §Å¾¡ó¾ï ¦ºõ¦À¡Õ Ç¡¾Ä¡ü
º¢ò¾¡ó¾ §Å¾¡ó¾í ¸¡ðÎï º¢Å¨É§Â"
"Since the soul attains salvation in Siddhanta, the devotees of Siddhanta become Jivan-Muktas; as Siddhanta is the quintessence of all the Vedas, it is the right path that will discover Siva."
