Vālai Sāmi, another Siddha, has envisaged that the Siddha is one who dwells in the city of unique and great space (peru-veli). In the language of the Siddhas, the epithets peru-veli, veṭṭa-veli and pāl veli indicated the colorless and adjunctless Ultimate Reality. He seems to be a devotee of Śakti as a virgin. From the very name, it is presumed that he lived in Madurai, where Lord Sokkanātha as a Siddha performed many sports and miracles.
