The Southern Indian Siddha Tradition:

The Baba Matsyendra Nath and Guru Gorakh Nath were instrumental in the spreading Shiva Shakta teaching (as the Union of Chandra-Surya) in the various regions of the Southern India, in different formats, by converting kings to Shaivism, by constructing temples, and by spreading written sources. Duty this reason, the teaching of the Southern Indian Siddhas (many of which were belonging to the Natha Sampradaya), represent considerable interest for understanding various aspects of the Siddha Siddhanta of the Natha Tradition.
