The name Pampattic Cittar means "The Siddha with the Dancing Snake."

Pampattic Cittar is a popular poet-magician of the Tamil Siddha movement of southern India. His poetry is powerful and direct, exploring meditation techniques, advocating austerity and renunciation and, like a few other Tamil Siddha poets, sometimes shocking the listener with explicit sexual imagery. His poetry quite directly talks about the awakening of the Kundalini Shakti, the serpent-like spiritual energy at the base of the spine that is aroused and rises to the crown during experiences of spiritual awakening.

Little can be said for certain about the life of Pampattic Cittar. Modern scholars estimate that he lived in the 14th or 15th century based on the word usage of his poetry.
