The following article was published in "The Times of Astrology"magazine, New Delhi, IndiaJan 2000.
Most of the readers may be knowing by now about Nadi astrology, since many articles havebeen published in magazines and newspapers. Some books were also published and muchexchange of information has been taking place through internet and e-mail. For the benefitof those who are not familiar with this branch of astrology I give a brief background of thesame from the reliable literature. Nadi astrology was written on palm leaves in ancientIndia. It is mostly prevalent in South India particularly in the Tamilnadu State. Its maincenter is a place called 'Vaitheerswarankoil' near 'Chidambaram'in Tamilnadu State. It isalso available in some other places of Chennai, Kanchipuram, Salem,Hyderabad/Secunderabad, Tirupati etc. There are many Nadi Grandhas and they are namedafter Hindu Gods, Sages and Planets such as Mahasiva Nadi, Brugu Nadi, Kowmara Nadi ,Koushika Nadi, Vashishta Nadi Agastya Nadi, Sapta Rishi Nadi, SatyaNadi Chandra Kala Nadietc. They are available in the languages of Tamil, Sanskrit mainly. The palm leaves are heldby certain families who read the results from the palm leaves mostly by taking the thumbimpression and some from palm and birth data.I also propose to discuss brief examples of actual readings from thumb prints or otherwisefrom some nadi astrologers, their veracity with respect to past and future, correlation withtraditional astrological principles, my experiences, opinion of others, doubts and questions,further research required on the same. This is based on my collection of data and researchfor the last three decades
The origin of these leaves can be traced back to approximately 2000 years ago. It ispresumed that the Sapta Rishis (Seven Sages) had written the life patterns of each personon palm leaves along with their types of names by their Yogic Powers. These unique leaveswere kept in the Saraswati Mahal' library of Tanjore city of Tamilnadu State in India. Laterduring the British Rule the British were very keen to acquire these types of ancient leavesdealing with herbal cure, alchemy, fortune-telling etc; but left some of the astrologicalleaves to their loyalists. Some were put to auction also. People belonging to a particular sectcalled Valluvar community who specialized in astrology bought these leaves. Some of thesewere acquired by the astrology families in Vaitheeswarankoil about 60 years ago fromThanjavur Saraswati Mahal Library . The leaves were found lying idle in Vaitheeswarankoilby about 13th century the forefathers found them realized their values and copied thecontents on palm leaves and made exact replica These leaves have been handed down overgenerations to make predictions. They earned their livelihood through Nadi Astrology. It is ahereditary profession for them. They got trained from their elders to do Nadi reading. Whatis written on the leaves is read and explained by them. The language is poetic and the scriptis also different. It is the same as in the ancient temples. Some of the Nadis are available in
the Oriental Manuscripts Library at Chennai, India though in mutilated condition and theSaptaRishiNadi was published in Tamil in six volumes lagna wise . The Sanskrit texts weretranslated and written on palmyra or palm leaves in old archaic tamil language. There weresome nadigranthas translated into another South Indian Telugu language. Marata KingSarabhoji and Chola Kings patronized this form of astrology and translations. It is statedthat Sage Agasthya has written in Tamil. They have a certain amount of collection leaves.For each thumb print there will be 6 granthas. In each granthas there will be 108 sizes and12 parts according to Siva Nadi and 50 sizes in Agastyanadi that means for one thumb printmany stories of person can be read. In Siva Nadi more details are given as discussionbetween Lord Siva and Parvati than in Agastya Nadi . It seems that these Nadis wereoriginally written on animal skins and some leaves and later they were copied on palmleaves. They re preserved by applying oil extracted from peacock's blood.The Nadi readers say that natives whose leaves are there will somehow or other comes tothem at the appropriate age specified on the leaves from any corner of the world. Leavesare there not only for Indian but for foreigners also belonging to other religions. Who everare desired to look into the leaves will go to them on his own accord. They very word Nadiin Tamil mean (destined) to come own accord. Those who are not destined may not evenknow such a type of astrology exists. Even the very age when the native is destined to go tothem is marked on the leaves. So they say they do not adventure for their profession.Whoever is destined to come will come faith is the root of their system. It is also stated thatabout 40% of the people in the world only are likely to get these results as available.
The Nadi Astrologer is generally busy and one has to take an appointment with him a monthbefore approximately When you go there on the appointed day he checks his dairy and takethe three impressions of the right thumb for males and the left thumb for females on apaper giving serial order number and ask you to wait till he calls you. Then he goes insidehis library room where the palm leaves are kept which is not accessible to others. After anhour or so, sometimes quicker, he comes back with an old palm leaf bundle called indexleaves. After making himself comfortable he carefully unwinds the long string which keepsthe bundle in tact. He tells you to answer yes or no to his questions. With great devotion hetakes the first palm leaf and starts reading on one side. The reading style is of funny accentin a poetic way, not understandable to even Tamilians. After reading one or two lines oreven less sometimes he asks you some questions and you have to answer yes or no only. If you say 'No' he proceeds to the other side of leaf or next leaf and continues his questions.The questions are generally one or two at a time , such as whether y our name is aftersome God /Goddess contains 3 or 4 or so letters or so, starts ends with a particular letter ina Varga (series) of the Hindu alphabets, Similarly about the names of parents andwife/husband whether anyone of them or both are alive or dead, number of elder andyounger brothers and sisters, number of children number of uncles, type of profession,whether you are born in rainy season /summer etc. whether you are born in moveable /fixed/dual Moon and lagna rasis, whether you are born in a particular Moon Birth starwhether you are born in a particular day in a particular year whether your age is so and soetc. He says that h e does not know what questions to ask unless he scans the leaves andthat is why they generally insist the concerned person or a person who knows every detailabout the persons consulted, should be present to answer the questions correctly, otherwisethey say the readings won't go wrong. They do no bother much of you cannot answerquestions about birth date month age, Moon rasi and star, lagna and they seem to bothermore about matching of your name names of parents and wife/husband. If he gets 'No'answers to all the leaves of the first bundle which he goes back into his library and brings
another bundle. This process continues for an hour or so generally covering generally up tobundles each consisting about 50 leaves or sometimes quickly even in the first bundle till heand your are satisfied and the answers to all the questions in a particular leaf are 'yes' onlyConcerning names, parents, wife /husband, co-borns profession etc.Then he goes inside and bring another particular bundle and reads in poetic style youractual birth date month land year the astrological birth chart with position of planetssometimes with lagna also exact names of yourself, parents, wife/ husband, co-born,education, profession and gist of future predictions in a broad way and this is called GeneralKandam (chapter) of first bhava. You can verify the chart given if you know your birth charthe writes the concerned verses from the leaf in a note book . Then he records the same inan audio tape with translation into common understandable Tamil or some other languageswith the help of a translator if necessary . He generally charges a minimum of 300 rupeesupto this General Kandam Then he asks you whether you want to more details about anyparticular aspect of your life such as marriage, profession, etc and if so he picks upcorresponding bundle and charges a similar amount extra for each aspect which he calls it aseparate kandam or chapter. Some chapters give details about previous birth, remedialmeasures etc. At the end he hands over the note book and audio tape to you with devotionand takes money generally at the place where the photos of Gods /Goddess are there.
The details covered in each Kandam generally are as follows:-Kandam 1 - To be found through thumb impression (gents right, ladies left or sometimes byhoroscope of the concerned person or palm, will contain name parents and wife/husband'snames brothers, sisters, maternal uncles, children, profession and general list of futurepredictions for all the 12 houses.Kandam 2 - Money family speech, eyes, education.Kandam 3 - Brothers and SistersKandam 4 - Mother ,House, Lands, Vehicles, PleasuresKandam 5 - Children Birth of children, reasons for not having children.Kandam 6 - Enemies, Diseases, Debts, cases in court.Kandam 7 - Marriage., Married lifeKandam 8 - Danger to life, longevity, period of death.Kandam 9 - Father, Wealth, luck, Temple devotion to God ,Preaching from HolymanKandam 10 - Business, Job, ProfessionKandam 11 - Gain , Second Marriage.Kandam 12 - Expenditure , Foreign visit, salvation,next birth.Kandam 13 - Shanthi Kandam - Last Birth, Sins committed, remedial measures
