Subramaṇiya Bhārathi (1882-1921 C.E.), a Brahmin by caste, was born on December 11, 1882, at Eṭṭaiyapuram in Tirunelveli District of Southern Tamilnādu to Mr Chinnasāmy and Mrs. Lakśmi.

One can find Tāntric elements in the songs of Bhārathi like Śakti worship, yogic ideas and other spiritual things which are connected with the Siddhas. Like the traditional Tamil Siddhas, Bhārathi also insisted on the worship of Mother-goddess in the name of Śakti which is common to all Siddha fraternity.
