Siddham Language Facts:

Siddham is the name of a North Indian script used for writing Sanskrit during the period ca 600-1200 CE. Descended from the Brahmi script via the Gupta script, which also gave rise to the Devanāgarī script as well as a number of other Asian scripts such as Tibetan script. There is some confusion over the spelling: Siddhāṃ and Siddham are both common. The script is a refinement of the script used during the Indian Gupta Empire. The name arose from the practice of writing the word Siddham, or Siddham rastu ("may there be perfection") at the head of documents.

Siddham is an abugida or alphasyllabary rather than an alphabet because each character indicates a syllable, but it does not include every possible syllable. If no other mark occurs then the short 'a' is assumed. Diacritic marks indicate the other vowels, the pure nasal (anusvāra), and the aspirated vowel (visarga). A special mark (virama) can be used to indicate that the letter stands alone with no vowel, which sometimes happens at the end of Sanskrit words. See links below for examples.

Many of the Buddhist texts which were taken to China along the Silk Road were written using a version of the Siddham script. This continued to evolve, and minor variations are seen across time, and in different regions. Importantly it was used for transmitting the Buddhist tantra texts. At the time it was considered important to preserve the pronunciation of mantras, and Chinese was not suitable for writing the sounds of Sanskrit. This led to the retention of the Siddham Script in East Asia. The practice of writing using Siddham survived in East Asia where Tantric Buddhism persisted.

In the middle of the 9th century, China experienced a series of purges of "foreign religions", thus cutting Japan off from the sources of Siddham texts. In time, other scripts, particularly Devanagari, replaced Siddham in India, leaving East Asia as the only region where Siddham is used.
