About Nadi Astrology

Nadi astrology is an interesting way to learn about one's past, present and future. It is said that thousands of years ago, the great sages of India had the power to look into the past and future of the entire universe and recorded the life of each human being on palm leaves in an ancient Tamil script, which can now only be deciphered by expert Nadi astrologers.

How is the Nadi Reading Done?

The Nadi Astrologer first takes a person's thumbprint, which he then uses to identify the palm leaves belonging to the particular person from the numerous manuscripts in his possession. The astrologer then begins to read from each leaf and asks the person a series of questions about his or her life, while attempting to identify the correct leaf. This process takes several hours. It isn't always possible to identify a person's record.

Nadi Astrology - How it all started....

Research indicates that Nadi Astrology has been in use for at least 4000 years, when the treatises were first written on palm leaf scrolls in Sanskrit, the predominant language of ancient India. The original method of transmission was by oral means, before the committal of the texts to writing. The treatises are believed to have been originally composed long ago by the Sapta Rishis or the seven sages.

The preservation of the Nadi palm leaves and the translation from Sanskrit into the Tamil language was undertaken on a large scale during the regime of the Kings of Tanjore (Thanjavur) between the 9th and 13th Century AD. Some of the Nadi Granthas were also translated into another South Indian languages like Telugu, etc

Is Nadi Reading available for all ?

Leaves are there not only for Indian nationals but also for foreigners and other nationals belonging to other religions and creeds. The very word "Nadi" in Tamil means -" destined". Hence destiny has leaves for those who wished to have their readings. Those who are not destined may not even know such a type of astrology exists. Even the very age when the native is destined to go to them is marked on the leaves. It is also stated that about 40% of the people in the world only are likely to get these results as available. The other leaves might have been damaged or lost in the course of time due to wars and natural calamities.

Why Nadi Astrology needs thumb impressions??

Lines on the thumb of people on the earth are classified into 108 types. The Nadi palm leaves are arranged according to these types. The Nadi readers identify the particular types of lines on the thumb and the corresponding set of palm leaves is taken. The time duration to pick up your leaf depends upon the identification of the thumb impression. Some impressions are identified easily and the corresponding leaves are found soon.
